"Commit YOUR Soul to the Lord,
He's a Faithful Creator"
Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. [17] No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of Me, saith the Lord.
Isaiah 54:16-17
  1. God creates, in every age, both the weapon makers and the weapon users.
  2. God creates each of them to serve His purposes.
  3. God creates His servants, by His grace, for righteousness.
  4. God creates His servants of righteousness to overcome the threats of the waster and their weapons of destruction.
  5. God creates a heritage of confidence that is steadfast and sure for His servants to stand with Him, and by doing so, they together with Him, condemn the ungodly.
  6. God creates everything, therefore everything created must be subject to Him.
  7. God creates His servants to glory in Him, and in doing so they never have to fear the waster or his weapons.

The Lord hath made all things for Himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil. Proverbs 16:4

Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to Him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. 1 Peter 4:19

Trust the Lord TODAY!

Noah did, and so can YOU!

By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. Hebrews 11:7

"For the GLORY of GOD!"
Romans 15:16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.
  • There is no other way to be accepted by God other than through JESUS.
  • There is no other message that can be preached to make men acceptable than the GOSPEL of GOD.
  • There is no other means by which men can be accepted except through the sanctifying work of the HOLY GHOST.
  • There is no other people on the earth that can eternally help men become acceptable to GOD outside of those SANCTIFIED by the HOLY GHOST, SENT by GOD the FATHER, and SERVANTS of the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

Are YOU acceptable to God because of Jesus' life and sacrifice, and the sanctifying work of the Holy Ghost that has eternally changed you and permanently altered the way you think, live, and serve?

There IS no other WAY to be accepted than through Jesus and His LIFE!

There IS no other TRUTH to be shared than that which is rooted in and the result of Jesus and His BLOOD!

There IS no other LIFE to be granted than Jesus and His RESURRECTION!

Live and serve to see and help others offer an acceptable sacrifice unto God.
