The Gift of God by Tammy Lang Jensen

When Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money (Acts 8:18).

The Gift of God by Tammy Lang Jensen
I ask my people today, “What do you think the currency of exchange is in heaven?” Can you buy your way in? Can you act good enough, that your good deeds get you in. 

Does your family lineage guarantee you a spot in heaven? The answer to all this is no. Jesus answered, “I am the Way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except through Me” (John 14:6). All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away (Isaiah 64:6).

When Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money (Acts 8:18). But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money! (Acts 8:20). God is not for sale, salvation is a free gift.

You simply must call out to God. Lord, I repent of my sins, forgive me and wash me with your blood. I make you my Lord and Savior, Amen....Then God gives us a simple command: heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons: freely you have received, freely give (Matthew 10:8). God even gives as warnings of what will make it hard to follow him. If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me (Matthew 19:21).

Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God! (Matthew 19:24). You must take up your cross daily and follow God. And to be perfectly honest, some days it feels like a heavy burden to bear. But God promises in his word. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light (Matthew 11:30). It is time to prepare yourself as a soldier. Start to ask yourself some of the hard questions. For in the days of sorrow, things will not become easier, but harder. Are you prepared to stand your ground? All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for my name sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another. Many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved (Matthew 24:8-13). I hear a trumpet blast from heaven.

Endure to the end! Endure to the end! I am coming to rescue my people....Stand Strong My Brave Soldiers! And watch deliverance come from the hand of the Lord. Give a triumphant victory shout and sing. All is well, all is well, all is well with my soul!!!!
