    JESUS SAVES 5 days ago

    « For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? »
    (Mark 8:36)
    So, as much as there is in me, I am ready to preach the Gospel to you, for I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: because it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes!
    As it is written in the Holy Scriptures, all human beings born after Adam are sinners and have been appointed to face the eternal judgment of God of the last day.
    But the good news (the Gospel) is that God sent his Son Jesus Christ to pay the price of sin for his people (the elects) by sacrificing his life and shedding his precious blood on the cross of Calvary, then He was buried and on the third day after his death He resurrected unto eternal life, then He ascended to the highest of heavens to sit on the right hand of the throne of God the Father and reign forever.
    If you believe in Jesus Christ of Nazareth and his sacrifice on the cross of Calvary for the payment of your sins and also in his burial and resurrection, your sins shall be forgiven and you shall be saved from the eternal judgment of God, and therefore, you will be exempt from spending your eternity in the eternal fire of hell, and Jesus will bring you to heaven forever; all of this, only if you have truly believed from your heart in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and in what He did for the sinners He came to save.
    But if you do not believe in Jesus Christ, your sins shall not be forgiven and you shall not be saved from the eternal judgment of God; therefore, you will spend your eternity in the lake of fire as the eternal punishment for your sins together with the devil (Satan) and his angels, and this is called the second death.
    The glorious Gospel of Christ has just been preached to you.
    May God by His Will, open your heart to receive and believe in the Truth, so that you might be forgiven and saved.
    “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
    In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
    Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”
    (1 John 4:8-10)
    “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.”
    (Matthew ‪1:21‬)
    “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
    (John ‪3:36‬)
    “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
    (Romans ‪6:23‬)
    You can read the King James Bible (Authorized Version 1611 - Pure Cambridge Edition), so you will discover who is the Lord Jesus Christ and what He did for those He came to save.

    Steve Jobs closed this commencement speech with the following “catch phrase”.
    “Stay hungry. Stay foolish. '' 14:26
    (of a person or action) lacking good sense or judgment; unwise.
    Why? Was it figurative, satirical, or even literal? Was he just trying to be cool and use a secular humanistic catch phrase?
    My goodness !! Of all the ways to end a commencement speech. How uninspiring. I know this individual has perished and I by no means mean any disrespect. I will certainly put love and truth over the ideals of men, nonetheless.
    For those that watched the entire video; did you notice that he did not mention the word “love” even once using the same motivational flare as he did using the word “self”, “hungry” and “foolish”?!!
    The belief that “self” is front and center and the vehicle by which one should propel oneself into action and the means by which one should fuel determinism is a secular humanistic ideology that is all to prevalent on the world’s social stage.
    To the secular humanist (common person-gentile) there are basically two motivational ideologies that determine one's path and course in life, as Mr. Jobs certainly implied while he was still alive. Both by his actions as well as with his words.
    1.) Intrinsically ~ “that’s the thing YOU want, the individual, the “self”” and using self intuition.
    2.) Extrinsic “that’s the thing others want of you regardless of whether you are consensual to it, or not”
    To a few of us, only one thing motivates, as it should be ~~
    *LOVE* “that is selflessness”
    I prefer to be only motivated by the third reason that sadly, many care to acknowledge either by word or deed. But a do a few of us do. I believe this is what matters most. Not a hunger for self ambition that pushes others away and apart. Not a false religious-metaphysical attitude like “Karma” and the other Indian religions that Steve may well have been tinkering with over the course of his life.
    Love. Period.
    'âhav/ 'âhêv
    Briggs Driver Brown Definition:
    ~Our Creator’s Love toward His Creation, Human Kind
    ~human love for and to The One True God who is Yahweh the Maker of Heaven an Earth, Creator of all known and unknown; King and the God of Israel and all the nations that join to her through covenant of Torah by the Messiah Yahshua.
    ~human love for another
    ~act of being a friend

    “And if I have prophecy, and know all secrets and all knowledge, and if I have all belief, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am none at all.
    And if I give out all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but do not have love, I am not profited at all.
    Love is patient, is kind, love does not envy, love does not boast, is not puffed up,
    does not behave indecently, does not seek its own, is not provoked, reckons not the evil,
    Love does not rejoice over the unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth,
    it covers all, believes all, expects all, endures all.
    Love never fails. And whether there be prophecies, they shall be inactive; or tongues (diverse languages), they shall cease; or (worldly) knowledge, it shall be inactive.
    For we know in part and we prophesy in part.
    But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part shall be inactive.
    When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child, I reasoned as a child. But when I became a man, I did away with childish matters.
    For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know (lucidly), as I also have been known.
    And now belief, expectation, and love remain - these three. But the greatest of these is love.”
    Rav Sha’ul, his first letter to Corinth in the Provinces of Asia Minor. Circa First Century AD
    Chapter 13 verses 1 -13
