Our Works

Hello everyone. Today I am going to be talking about Our Works. The works that I am meaning are the works that we do as Christians during our time on earth until we are called home by the Lord Jesus Christ. The amount we through into our works for the Kingdom of Heaven determines how you will be rewarded at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Our works that we do as Christians who truly believe in Christ will be judged by fire before the Lords judgment seat. Any works that have been done that were of the flesh will also be judged in the same manner.

Do not expect to be able to enter Heaven and be rewarded because of your works alone. You can not enter Heaven by only your works. You must believe in Christ Jesus as you Lord and Savior. You yourself must be saved. Ephesians 2:8,9 says;

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,

not of works, lest anyone should boast.

As you can see we are not saved by our works but by the gift of Gods grace and through our faith in Him. We must always have faith in Him and believe that He is with us in everything we do. We must make sure that the works we do are works of, for, and by the Spirit of the Lord. No matter what though, all our works will be tried by fire at the Judgment Seat of Christ.

If you read 1 Corinthians 3:10-13 which says,

According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it.

For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,

each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be reveald by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.

As you can see from this part of scripture all of our works will be revealed and tested by fire during the Judgment Seat of Christ. If you hae done works of gold, silver and precious stones then you will be rewarded. But if the works that you have laid are works like wood, hay and straw then you will have great loss by you yourself will be spared.

Brothers and Sisters I urge you all. Lay down works that are of the Spirit upon the foundatio that lays before you. Give into the Spirit of God and cast away that which is of the flesh. To any that are reading this and have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. I beg you not to put it off any longer. Pray to God and ask Him to forgive you of your sins. Allow Jesus Christ to enter your heart and to come into your life. I will be praying for each and everone of you. Until next time. God Bless.

Facing Lifes Trials.

Everyone faces trials all through their lives. Each trial we go through has a purpose and we are the ones who determine if we succeed and make it through or fail. But you know what? Their is a way to get through every single trial that we face in our lives. The way to make it through your trials is to have faith in the Lord that He will protect you all through every trial.

There is one bible verse that comes to mind with this and it is Deuteronomy 1:30-31.

“The Lord your God, who goes before you, He will fight for you, according to all He did for you in Egypt before your eyes,

‘and in the wilderness where you saw how the Lord your God carried you, as a man carries his son, in all the way that you went until you came to this place.”

There are also two songs that come to mind when dealing with the trials of life. These songs are, The Anchor Holds by Ray Boltz and Praise You in the Storm by Casting Crowns. Both of these songs speak volumes when it comes to facing the trials in our lives.

You can make it through your trials and come out of them successful if you can believe and have faith that the Lord will help you.

Until next time. God Bless.

Hearing the Voice of God and Feeling His Presence.

Have you ever felt like there is someone standing next to you put when you look there is nobody there? Or have you notice that someone said something to you but when you ask those around you didn’t say anything? Well the person who was standing beside you and that voice that spoke to you are one and the same. You have either felt the presence of God or have heard His voice. God is with you through every event in your life. He will never leave you nor will He forsake you. God loves you with an everlasting love. He loves you so much that He gave His only begotten Son that all those who believe in Him shall never perish but have everlasting life.

Do not fear Gods presence in your life nor hearing His voice when He speaks to you. God will always be an important figure in a Christians life. He is slow to anger but quick to forgive your sins. God knew you even before He formed you in your mothers womb. God has a plan for every person who was born on this earth and all we have to do is walk in His name and give Him Glory.

Continue to pray and seek Gods face. If any of you who have yet to ask God for the forgiveness of your sins and if you have any questions in regards to everything that you might have heard about God and His Son Jesus then feel free to either place them in the comments or you can send to to my email at oroark20@gmail.com and I will do my best to answer them.

May the Lord God Almighty bless all of you who read this post and may He pour out His Spirit upon you all. Until next time. God bless.

Update.

Hello everyone. I just wanted to give you all a quick update on my next study. I am going to be doing one on the Book of Acts. So keep a lookout for the first post real soon ok.

What Path Do You Walk?

Hello everyone! In this post I would like to ask you something very important. What path do you walk? Do you walk a path that is wide, crooked and easy? Or do you walk the path that is straight, narrow and is full of trials and tribulations?

Both paths lead to a final destination. One path leads to eternal life while the other path leads to eternal torment. Which path do you think leads where? Do you think that the path that is wide, crooked and easy leads to eternal life and the path that is straight, narrow and full of trials and tribulations leads to eternal torment? Or do you think that it is the other way around and the straight and narrow path leads to eternal life and the wide and crooked path leads to eternal torment? Unsure of the answer! Then here let me tell you.

If you are walking the path that is wide, crooked and easy then you are walking a path that will only lead to eternal torment and suffuring. To be walking this path is to be walking away from God and the Lord Jesus Christ. Walking this path you are walking toward being cast into the lake of fire at the end of Christ’s Millenial Kingdom when Christ sits upon the Great White Throne for the judgment of those who have died outside of Christ.

The path that you really should be walking is the path that is straight, narrow and full of trials and tribulations. It might be a difficult path to walk but the reward at the end is well worth it. To walk the straight and narrow path and suffur through all the trials and tribulations is to walk to eternal life with the Lord Jesus Christ. All christians struggle to walk this path but as long as they can continue to keep their faith and keep walking forward that can withstand anything that the devil tries to throw at them. Only then will they reap the rewards of their faith in the One who save them.

Ladies and Gentalmen. I write this post with a great conviction and a hope that all of you will come to the Lord and begin to walk the straight and narrow path. I hope and pray to see you all one day in heaven and in eternity. Until next time and God Bless.
