Moving

To my dear readers and followers:

I am moving over to Baptist Reporter and my Google+ page. I think I must do something different than WordPress. I cannot support the ads nor the rainbow flag that they displayed a couple of weeks ago. As I stated in last week’s post, the Bible does not support the gay agenda. I thank you for all the encouragement I have received, from likes to reads. I hope ya’ll have been blessed and that the posts have done their job in glorifying God, bringing the Gospel to others, and edifying the church.

I will be leaving this blog up, but will not be putting new posts on. From now on, posts will be on Baptist Reporter and Google+.

Thank you, dear readers.

Sincerely,

The Fundamental Baptist Reporter.

Flight 389

          Cody's Airplane

            Beep! Beep! Beep! Click!

            Jane turned her alarm clock off and sat up. When she remembered what day it was, she was wide awake. It was May 23rd, at 3:00 in the morning, and today was the day she was to leave for Europe. Her parents were going to drive her to Denver, Colorado, where she would fly east to Chicago, change planes, fly to New York City, where the plane would re-fuel, and then fly to Paris, France. She quickly dressed and went downstairs to help with preparations.

After reading the Bible and finishing preparations, the James Yoder family left Cody, Nebraska and began the 364-mile trip to Denver, Colorado. Stopping at Ellsworth to fill up on gas, James continued to Lakeside.

“Good morning, sir,” someone greeted James as the family entered a small diner.

“Good morning,” James replied.

“Where are you from?” the stranger asked.

“Cody, Nebraska,” James answered.

“I’m Robert,” the man said, extending his hand.

“And I’m James,” came the answer.

“Where are you headed?” Robert asked.

“Denver,” James replied.

“Ya’ll Mennonites or Amish?” Robert asked next.

“Not any more,” James answered. “We used to be, but when a little Baptist church started up, we started looking at things and decided to join the Baptist church.”

“So, why are you headed to Denver?”

“Jane is on her way to Europe as a missionary,” James explained.

“I see,” Robert said. “Well, I wish you well on your trip.”

“Thank you,” James replied.

“You said you’re on your way to Denver?” the cashier asked as James paid for the meal a while later.

“Yep,” James replied. Continue reading

The Love of God

Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. (1 John 3:16)

More than 2,000 years ago, God the Son came to this earth. John 3:16 says:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

When Jesus was about 33 years old, He was crucified. Three days and three nights later, He rose again “for our justification” (Romans 4:25). It was God’s love for all mankind that sent God the Son down to earth to die for our sins.

It is God’s love that offers salvation to mankind. If we reject this free gift, then we will spend a conscious eternity away from the presence of God. This is the purpose of Hell. You wanted nothing to do with God, so He gave you your wish. You are forever separated from God; all alone; in torment. And it will last forever.

But while you are still alive, God’s offer of salvation is offered to you. But you must accept the gift in order to obtain salvation. I hope you will accept the free gift of God’s love.

And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life. (1 John 2:25).
