Praise God!

For the late crowd!

Radically Saved

I have been feeling attacked by my Enemy today. So I put away my devices, went outside on my lunch, and listened for God. He spoke to me; just keep focused on Me He said. Praise God He never leaves us alone. Just have to listen!

In Jesus name!

Jesus Is Lord!

Good morning again and Happy Sunday! I hope you all made it through the work week unscathed and are ready for a nice relaxing weekend. It was a tough one for me I know in all areas; Spiritually, Physically, and Mentally so I am hoping for a bit of a break from the battle, Amen?

Ok so I have really been on this struggle bus if you will between telling the Truth’s of the Gospel and yet still not causing division in the process. I mean, what good is telling others the Truth about Jesus if they aren’t going to listen because of the content of your message. In this world we live in now, if it isn’t a message about self love and “what’s in it for me?” most don’t listen. Want to know what I’ve discovered today? It’s impossible….

As with all things let us look at Jesus’ ministry shall we?

1. He only had twelve disciples; one of which was being controlled by Satan.

2. Very few people He encountered understood what He was saying much less acted upon it.

3. People hated Him because of the message He brought.

4. Even His own disciples doubted His message at times.

5. In the Garden, even Jesus was so distraught over the Truth of what was going to happen, He was sweating blood! (Luke 22:44)

So, with all of that, do you think my results will be any different? I would say that if the Son of God Himself faced all of these things, its a good bet that I will as well. Amen? So what to do….Well, I can just give up and sit in the corner waiting for Jesus to return or I can do what Jesus did and just continue to tell the Truth in Love of His Gospel message. Will I offend people? Yep. Will people block and unfriend me? Yep. Will people even get angry and insult me? Yep. But you know what? No matter what they do to me will ever match up to what Jesus had to endure. The same goes for all of you; don’t be afraid today, be BOLD!

And with that here are some plain and simple Truths…

1. There is a God that created everything in the Universe including you and me. (We did not come from pond scum)

2. Jesus of Nazareth was a real person on this planet that had a ministry that produced many miracles. (And oh by the way, that person was also God’s only Son and the Savior of all mankind.)

3. Jesus died a real death on the Cross of Calvary and endured physical suffering like no other.

4. Three days after His death, He rose again and appeared to hundreds if not thousands of people.

5. After a time, He ascended back to Heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father until His calling to come back.

6. He WILL becoming back, except this time in Judgment for those that refused to follow God and the way of true love through Christ.

7. Those that have given their heart to Jesus will enter into Heaven with Jesus for all eternity. Those that do not will live their eternity in a VERY REAL PLACE called HADES. (I promise you it exists…..)

8. No matter what you have done, you can still come to Jesus today! He loves you more than you can imagine and is there for you. All you have to do is ask! Jesus is a gentleman and will never force His way into your heart; you have to invite Him in.

9. No one goes to the Father BUT THROUGH HIM (Jesus). Not Mary, not Paul, not Saint whoever, JESUS AND JESUS ALONE IS THE WAY TO THE FATHER!

10. You are not promised tomorrow so secure your future today! (Also, secure your present; Jesus said we can experience the Kingdom of God right here!)

Friends, I hope you take some time to digest all of this and evaluate where you stand. Time is short and the decision to make may be made for you if your not careful. I appreciate and love all of you and if you agree with these Truths, please share this message with someone today! (Reblog, repost, like, whatever, just share it). Not for my glory, but for His! Amen!

Talk soon,

David

Let It Go!

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday! This get your attention? I know it can be annoying but Frozen is one of my favorite all time Disney movies and honestly can’t wait to see the upcoming Broadway version. So many positive messages in this movie along with some God inspired vocals for sure. The Frozen “Let it Go” is not what this message is about however so get ready to really Let it Go!

Colossians 3:15  “And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

So often in our lives we deal with daily struggles and with that we are always looking for a way out of those struggles. Health issues, job issues, just every day life issues are always disrupting us and preventing us from having peace. More than anything worrying picks us up in the air and face-palms us right into the ground, But what I find fascinating is that the resource for escaping all of this is right in front of us yet we avoid it like the plague; Jesus.

You see when we make Jesus our Savior, like the passage above says, He gives us a peace inside of us that we can tap into whenever we need it. We have died to our former selves and now have become a “new creation” in Christ Jesus! Yet, we continue to look for earthly ways to obtain that peace and then wonder why we always struggle.

I often hear that its not easy to do; of course it isn’t! You have an Enemy who hates the very fiber of your existence who is always whispering that you have no hope! But the devil is a liar and so are those words! No earthly words, preaching, or advice can give you what the peace of Jesus Christ can, NOTHING! Yet we turn to “experts” on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, yes even WordPress before we go to the only One that can give us what we desire so greatly.

Friends, as a Christ follower you have two choices here; One- you continue to live for the world and live a life of worry, struggle, depression, and frustration. Or two- You place ALL of the worry, struggle, depression, and frustration in your life and give it to Jesus where He will replace that with a peace beyond understanding. I told my middle son the other day that I honestly fear nothing anymore and its true! I struggle still yes but with God in my life, what do I need to fear? Fear this decaying peace of meat that is only a vessel to get around this planet? Nothing can destroy the real me that is inside and that God will always protect.

Today everyone, just LET IT GO! Break the chains of worry, fear, and frustration and watch Jesus change your life!

In Christ,

David

Have We Forgotten?

Have we forgotten our purpose?

Good morning everyone and welcome to the weekend! Another full week of fun and games at that thing we call life. Things are starting to look up here at the ole Fischer corral; my Bride is recovering nicely, I am over that silly head cold, we have food in our house, and we are warm from the cold. How much more could I ask for?

My family is blessed beyond imagination; hence my topic today “Have We Forgotten”? Forgotten what? I’m glad you asked!

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Matthew 22:36-40

Love…We have forgotten love. Sounds too simple right? I mean, God has called us to so much; how can our mission be so simple? Well, in this crazy world in which we find ourselves today, Satan has done a great job of clouding our minds to make us forget the importance of this passage above.

See if we don’t love God with all our heart, soul, and mind and then love each other as we would love ourselves, NOTHING else matters. Are you hearing me this morning? NOTHING. Why? Well people always forget the last part of this passage…ALL the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments. ALL of it!

Your ministry, your blogs, your career, your good intentions, NOTHING else matters if you first haven’t mastered these two simple acts. See people say things like, “We are called to judge”, “We are called to hold people accountable” and my personal favorite “I can love them but not hang around them”. Really?

Yes, we are called to do so much more; the New Testament is filled with teachings and commands that Jesus has for us; BUT if we haven’t taken these first two commands to heart and applied them, none of it matters. It’s like going from First Grade to Harvard without knowing how to read and write. It doesn’t work and neither does our actions when we try and live the Bible without love; that is the problem.

P.S. This includes the judgment or the "let's wait and see" attitude of people with checkered pasts professing their new found love for Christ. Be better saints!!

Love, not just any love, but the Agape Love that Christ showed us on the Cross. Can we do that? Can we stop the madness and just love God and others today? Once we master that, all the other things fall into line. Satan has also done a good job of making us forget where we came from; do you not remember what a wretch you were before Christ? Do you not understand that in fact you still would be if it were not for the saving Blood of Christ?

Step out in faith today friends and just love. God has shown you how, now just do it. Move beyond YOU and get back to what He has called us to do. Amen?

Agape Love my friends,

David

Focus Time!

Hey everyone! Just a quick note that while I have not written as much lately, I am still here! I am going to try and put more focus back onto my writing here; I hope you all will still join me.

Agape Love,

David

Good Morning WordPress Church!

Good Morning WordPress Church! Thank you for your continued prayers. It means more than you know. Satan must know God has something big in store for me because the attacks are relentless but my God is stronger and will get me through. Never doubt that my friends.

Have a blessed Tuesday!

Non-Negotiables

Today’s message will be quick but maybe not painless. There are a few “non-negotiables” when it comes to my faith in Jesus Christ that are not open for discussion. So much so that I am not even willing to have debate on these for if any of these are changed even in the slightest, the bedrock on which our faith is built no longer exists. Here they go.

  1. God is the Creator of all things that exist.
  2. God created the world in six actual days.
  3. God created the world without sin; WE (Adam and Eve) brought it upon ourselves.
  4. God still so loved His Creation that He sent His only Son Jesus Christ to pay the penalty WE should have paid; He paid it by dying crucified to an actual Cross in Calvary.
  5. Jesus laid in the tomb for 3 days before He rose again.
  6. After His resurrection, He walked among His people for a time and then ascended to the right hand of the Father.
  7. One day, at a time only known by the Father, Jesus will come again to judge the Earth and restore things how they were intended to be.
  8. The Bible is the inerrant Word of God, written by man but inspired by God. (I am willing to discuss translation issues as the Bible we read today is not in the same format it originally was, however, it is still the Word of God and the only source of Truth for how God calls us to live as well as all other aspects of why we are here.)
  9. Marriage was designed to be between One Man and One Woman.
  10. There is a very real place that awaits God’s people after we die called Heaven. There is also a very real place that awaits those who reject Him called Hell. Both places are eternal and will not be changed.

Again, for me, these basics are not open for discussion. If after reading this you choose not to be a part of my ministry, that’s ok. I for one, however, am tired of seeing the Church community divided on basic Godly Principles so I am making a stand.

Hope you all continue to serve with me!

David
