The Democratic Party Is A Death Cult
I am so sick of these progressive Democrats waiting to pounce on death and exploit it to their advantage. It takes a special kind of person to do it, to see something awful unfolding on television and think, “How can I use this to my advantage?” That’s the modern American left, and it has to be destroyed.
The Outrage Over Shooting a Newspaper
All I did was put seven bullet holes in a New York Times editorial from top to bottom. I guess I should again point out that I wasn’t going for a grouping, but top to bottom coverage. In any event, the left seems more outraged by me putting bullet holes in a newspaper than they are terrorists shooting up a place in California.

JPMorgan Warns Of “Eye-Catching” 76% Probability Of Recession
Just days ago Citi pronounced, much to the chagrin of the status-quo-hugging Fed faithful, that given the turn in corporate profits (and concerns over margin sustainability) that the chance of a recession in the US had risen to 65% (and on that basis had a bearish outlook for US equities). Now, as other major sell-side shops jump on the equity un-bullish narrative, JPMorgan’s Michael Feroli warns that in the past, a low unemployment rate, rising compensation, falling margins, and elevated durables investment have historically signaled an elevated risk that an expansion is nearing its end… and puts the probability of a US recession within 3 years at 76%.

No, Mr. President, the NRA is not to blame: Chris Cox
Just when we think that politics can’t sink any lower, President Obama once again proves us wrong by politicizing the tragedy in San Bernardino before the facts were even known. What we do know is that the American people are heartbroken by these horrific crimes — and despite what the president would have us believe — America’s law-abiding gun owners are heartbroken by these horrific crimes as well. At the same time, we are sick and tired of this president suggesting the men and women of the National Rifle Association are somehow to blame.

How Russia is smashing the Turkish game in Syria
Daesh stolen oil can’t flow through Damascus-controlled territory. Can’t flow though Shiite-dominated Iraq. Can’t go east to Iran. It’s Turkey or nothing. Turkey is the easternmost arm of NATO. The US and NATO “support” Turkey. So a case can be made that the US and NATO ultimately support Daesh. What’s certain is that illegal Daesh oil and illegal KRG oil fit the same pattern; energy interests by the usual suspects playing a very long game.

The American people need to pay close attention to what is happening in Syria. There is a lot more going on there than just terrorism, civil war, and ISIS. If we are going to put our people in harms way, yet again, we should know why we are really there. Is it to fight ISIS? Is it to depose Assad? Is it to support “moderate” rebels? Is it to put a check on Putin? Is it to protect Turkish revenue streams?
Jesus’ Values Are in All Faiths, Obama Says at Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony; Sings ‘Jingle Bells’ and No Christian Songs
During Thursday’s White House National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony, President Barack Obama suggested the teachings of Jesus Christ are reflected in all faiths.
Obama, who was accompanied by his family, called Americans and the world to share the “spirit of compassion,” adding, “That’s the message of the child whose birth families like mine celebrate on Christmas — a prince born in a stable who taught us that we should love our neighbors as ourselves; and that we are our brothers’ keeper and our sisters’ keepers; that we should feed the hungry, visit the sick, welcome the stranger.
“These are the lessons of Jesus Christ,” Obama declared. “But they’re also the bedrock values of all faiths — values to be cherished and embraced not only during the holidays, but to be practiced in our daily lives.”
After the lighting of the tree, CNN reported that Obama and actress Reese Witherspoon led the assembled in singing “Jingle Bells.” Miss Piggy made an appearance, praising first lady Michelle Obama for her “Let’s Move” fitness campaign.
Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon has issued a stark warning about a post-nuclear deal regional reality in which Iran’s weapons industry will receive a significant cash boost from sanctions relief to mass produce advanced arms for Iranian proxies, chief among them Hezbollah.
Speaking in Washington on Thursday to US Senators John McCain and Jack Reed from the Senate Armed Services Committee, and later with senators from the Committee on Foreign Relations, the defense minister said, “The Iranian weapon industry is very serious, and very advanced.
“It is not stopping in its attempts to develop advanced weapons that threaten not only Israel, but also other regional states and beyond the region. Now, thanks to the large quantity of money that will begin flowing to it after the lifting of the sanctions, it will begin manufacturing much more high-quality weapons, and will arm terrorist organizations in the region, particularly Hezbollah, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.”
Irony of November Job Growth Report Summed up in Drudge Tweet
U.S. job growth #’s were announced this morning, reporting a solid increase in November, but a tweet by Matt Drudge has highlighted the irony of the report
The day before Thanksgiving, President Obama reassured Americans there was “no specific and credible intelligence indicating a plot on the homeland. He was very, very wrong.
Every time there is an Islamic terror attack anywhere in the world but especially in America, Donald Trump’s poll numbers shoot through the roof. “I’m gonna get people jobs and I’m going to protect people. And that’s why whenever there’s a tragedy, everything goes up, my numbers go way up because we have no strength in this country, we have weak, sad politicians,” the billionaire businessman said after the Paris terror attacks. Democrats are very aware that they are quickly losing control of the narrative as Trump continues his unchecked path towards the presidency in 2016.
Donald Trump On Radical Islamic Terrorism:
Donald Trump’s predictions on Islamic terror attacks in America have been right on the money every time. Watch this video to hear what every presidential candidate’s views on Islamic terror should be.
Because of the Trump juggernaut, Democrat decision makers are insisting that Obama step out and make a speech to calm America’s frayed nerves, which he is planning on doing on Sunday, December 6th. Whatever volume of words his teleprompter-powered diatribe will contain, you can be nearly 100% certain that Obama will not utter the words “Islamic terrorism”. The day before Thanksgiving, President Obama reassured Americans there was “no specific and credible intelligence indicating a plot on the homeland.” Seven days later came an explosion of gunfire and the deadliest terrorist attack in America since Sept. 11, 2001. The White House then announced that Mr. Obama would address the nation on Sunday night about the nature of the terrorist threat and steps the administration is taking to protect the United States.
Trump On Obama & Terrorism: There’s Something Going On With Him That We Don’t Know About
Check out Trump’s statements on Obama refusal to use the term “Islamic terrorism” starting around minute 8:30. But watch this thing all the way through, is very enlightening.
Ha! Obviously, Obama’s anti-terrorism plans, since they steadfastly refuse to call it what it is, Islamic, are a resolute failure and the end result is that Americans are dying. Not only that, if our current head-in-the-sand approach is not changed, more Americans will die because Obama and the Librocrats are pathetically unable to do what is necessary to keep us safe in our homeland.
— The White House (@WhiteHouse) December 5, 2015
So should you tune into the Obama Comedy Hour Sunday night, just remember one thing. 21 Americans are now dead because Barack Hussein Obama cannot utter the words “Islamic terrorism”, and there is nothing funny about that.
Obama Apologizing to the World for US on Climate Is Ridiculous
The Daily Signal reports:
President Obama’s opening remarks at the Paris climate agreement were effectively an apology for industrial progress. At the kickoff of the talks Obama remarked, “I’ve come here personally, as the leader of the world’s largest economy and the second-largest emitter to say that the United States of America not only recognizes our role in creating this problem, we embrace our responsibility to do something about it.”
Obama should not be apologizing for the economic growth that dramatically improved Americans’ and much of the world’s quality of life. Instead, the president should apologize for pushing costly and ineffective climate policies that will make us worse off and trap the world’s poorest citizens in poverty.

Believers in traditional marriage and biblical guidelines on sexuality are worried about the erosion of religious freedom because of a new threat they now are facing in the state of Indiana. One hundred fifty businesses have joined forces to lobby the state for a law guaranteeing LGBT workers new protections. “Indiana Competes” claims it wants “legislation that guarantees all individuals receive fair treatment in the workplace, in housing, and in businesses and government services throughout the state of Indiana.”
However, pro-family activists say changes to Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) that were forced through in April after intensive lobbying by pro-homosexual activists already prohibit small business owners from using religious beliefs as a way to avoid providing services to a homosexual wedding or similar event. New legislation, pro-family advocates fear, would simply provide more tools for those looking to persecute those who believe in traditional morality. Micah Clark of the American Family Association of Indiana told the Indianapolis Star the push for new legislation was “divisive” and played into a “false narrative” about supposed discrimination against LGBT workers.

|Messianic San Bernardino victim was ‘gentile’ supporter of Israel
Posted: 05 Dec 2015 09:17 PM PST
While America puzzles over the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, many American Jews are puzzling over an additional element: the religious identity of victim Nicholas Thalasinos. Pictured on his Facebook page wearing a scarf-style tallit prayer shawl, Thalasinos, who was killed along with 13 others in Wednesday’s shooting at a center for people with disabilities, has been variously identified in media reports as a Jew, a Zionist and, in some cases, a messianic Jew.
Just two weeks ago, Thalasinos reportedly got into a heated argument about the nature of Islam with co-worker Syed Farook, whom authorities said perpetrated the horrific San Bernardino attack along with his wife, Tashfeen Malik. Investigators announced Friday that they were treating the attack as a terrorist act motivated by Islamic extremism. Both husband and wife were Muslim, and authorities said Malik had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in a Facebook post. FULL REPORT

|FBI Neglect of San Bernardino Crime Scene Fits a Pattern
Posted: 05 Dec 2015 09:09 PM PST
The shocking sight of journalists storming into the apartment of the San Bernardino terrorists, less than 48 hours after the attack, was apparently allowed by the FBI, which handed the apartment back over to the landlord, who let the media in with a crowbar. CNN had a reporter on the scene, but its own analyst Harry Houck was shocked, calling it a “screw-up.” While the journalists’ behavior was disturbing, it fit a pattern: the Obama administration is careless about, or is reluctant to find, evidence of terrorism.
For example, the government has done almost nothing with the treasure trove of intelligence information it recovered during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in May 2011. Stephen F. Hayes of the Weekly Standard has waged a lonely battle to force the government to take the intelligence seriously–intelligence that could disrupt terror networks and prevent future attacks around the world. “They haven’t done anything close to a full exploitation,” perhaps only 10%, he quoted one analyst in May 2015.

Democratic lawmakers visited a mosque on Friday to show solidarity with Muslims in the wake of rising anti-Islamic rhetoric. They also showed resistance to any attempts by Republicans to restrict Syrian refugees from entering the country. Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va., and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-D.C., attended prayer service at a Northern Virginia mosque on Friday. The visit was in response to try and tamp down rising anti-Islamic rhetoric, but comes at a time when Congress is beginning negotiations on how to fund the government.
Republicans have floated the idea of inserting language into the omnibus government spending package to block Syrian refugees. The bill must be passed by Dec. 11, when the government runs out of money, but Beyer pushed back against calls from Republicans to tighten refugee restrictions. READ MORE

The world has lost a third of its arable land due to erosion or pollution in the past 40 years, with potentially disastrous consequences as global demand for food soars, scientists have warned. New research has calculated that nearly 33% of the world’s adequate or high-quality food-producing land has been lost at a rate that far outstrips the pace of natural processes to replace diminished soil.
The University of Sheffield’s Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures, which undertook the study by analysing various pieces of research published over the past decade, said the loss was “catastrophic” and the trend close to being irretrievable without major changes to agricultural practices.

|Mount Etna’s stunningly violent eruption was among the strongest in decades
Posted: 05 Dec 2015 08:20 PM PST
Early Thursday morning, southern Italy woke up to see this remarkable display — Mount Etna, Sicily’s tallest peak and active volcano, was erupting after two years of silence. The sky glowed red above Sicily, seen above from Calabria, Italy’s most southern region. The skies were cloudless on Thursday morning and Mount Etna was capped in white snow. Scientists say it was among the most violent eruptions from the volcano in the past two decades. The intense eruption exploded from Etna’s Voragine crater, and lofted ash 10,000 feet into the sky. The whole thing lasted less than an hour, according to Italy’s national institute of volcanology. The lava fountain reached heights of close to a mile.
High level winds from the southwest pushed ash over villages in Sicily and southern Italy, which was seen clearly on infrared satellite images. Numerous lightning bolts were also captured in the billowing ash cloud, which can sometimes happen in the most intense eruptions: Lightning in volcanic eruptions is caused by the same reason it occurs in thunderstorms — negative and positive charges separate in the atmosphere, and lightning is what restores the charges to balance. But why the charge separation occurs in volcanic eruptions in the first place is still not well-understood. FULL REPORT

|RISE OF ISIS WOMEN: 10 of 71 recruits arrested in U.S. are female
Posted: 05 Dec 2015 08:10 PM PST
Ten out of 71 recruits for the Islamic State terror group arrested in the U.S. since 2014 are women, according to a new report which demonstrates that the role of women in the extremist group’s ranks is increasing. Since March 2014, 71 individuals have been charged with Islamic State-related activities, 56 were arrested in 2015 alone, a record number of terrorism-related arrests for any year since 9/11 according to the report from George Washington University’s Program on Extremism.
Although a majority of Islamic State recruits and supporters tend to be male, an alarming number of women are joining the extremist group and helping to carry out its jihadist agenda. Researchers identified 300 American and/or U.S.-based Islamic State sympathizers who use social media to radicalize new recruits. About one third of those accounts were operated by women, according to the report. READ MORE

|Obama silent after FBI calls San Bernardino terrorism; LOOK what he did yesterday instead
Posted: 05 Dec 2015 08:04 PM PST
(Allen B West)We should know by now how our president reacts to certain tragedies that shock the very heart and soul of our nation — that nation he supposedly leads. Understandably (sarcasm intended) the president has a busy fundraising schedule to keep, as he did immediately following the murder of four Americans in Benghazi and the deaths of nine in Charleston, South Carolina, for example. He believes the show must go on, as he showed us right after the five U.S. servicemen were gunned down in Chattanooga, Tennessee — when he headed to New York for a broadway show.
And, of course, the only way one keeps a decent swing is to remain faithful to the golf course, as he showed us after addressing the nation in the wake of the Islamic State’s brutally beheaded American James Foley, when he jumped right back onto the golf course just minutes later.Well, at least in the case of James Foley’s death, the president addressed the nation and acknowledged a significant national tragedy. Which is what he DIDN’T do yesterday after the FBI confirmed our worst fears that indeed Wednesday’s massacre in San Bernardino appears to be an act of terrorism on U.S. soil. READ MORE

Five young Middle Eastern men were apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol this week in an Arizona town situated about 30 miles from the Mexican border, law enforcement and other sources told Judicial Watch. Border Patrol agents spotted the men crossing a ranch property in the vicinity of Amado, which is located about 35 miles south of Tucson and has a population of 275. Two of the Middle Eastern men were carrying stainless steel cylinders in backpacks, JW’s sources say, alarming Border Patrol officials enough to call the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for backup. A multitude of federal agents descended on the property and the two men carrying the cylinders were believed to be taken into custody by the FBI.
Only three of the men’s names were entered in the Border Patrol’s E3 reporting system, which is used by the agency to track apprehensions, detention hearings and removals of illegal immigrants. E3 also collects and transmits biographic and biometric data including fingerprints for identification and verification of individuals encountered at the border. The other two men were listed as “unknown subjects,” which is unheard of, according to a JW federal law enforcement source. “In all my years I’ve never seen that before,” a veteran federal law enforcement agent told JW.

It is now official that the San Bernardino Shooting was an “Act of Terrorism”, after the FBI has even came out and declared this case to be just that! However the White House and Obama still remains silent on calling this “Terrorism”! Obama lamented it is ‘just too easy’ for mass shootings to occur in America as he called for a new push on gun control in the wake of the San Bernardino attack. The White House acknowledges it is too early to confirm a motive for the mass killing that left 14 dead and 21 wounded but insists it underlines the need for reform. ‘It is possible that this is terrorist-related, but we don’t know, it’s also possible that this was workplace-related,’ Obama told reporters on Thursday in the Oval Office.

(Breitbart) Attorney General Loretta Lynch urged Muslim parents to contact both the justice department and the education department if they think their children are being “bullied” in school. “We’ve seen this for a number of years, we saw it a lot in the New York area [after 9/11], unfortunately, where there would be a backlash against the Muslim community in general,” she claimed at a Thursday fundraiser dinner for an Islamic advocacy group, Muslim Advocates. In response to Lynch’s address, conservative host Rush Limbaugh said on his radio show Friday:
Don’t bother with the principal! You know, education’s a local thing. But now all of a sudden, if your child is bullied and you are a Muslim, you are to call the Department of Justice in Washington and ask for the attorney general… Now, if you happen to be Jewish and your kids are bullied, don’t bother calling. If you happen to be Christian, if you happen to be Hindu, if you happen to be Tutsi or Hutu or whatever, don’t bother calling. If your kids are bullied, that doesn’t matter. Only Muslims are permitted to call… “Here is the attorney general claiming, promising to prosecute anybody who engages in anti-Muslim speech,” Limbaugh said. READ MORE

|Trump refuses to rule out dividing Jerusalem
Posted: 05 Dec 2015 07:22 AM PST
The billionaire Republican frontrunner for president, Donald Trump, attempted to woo Jewish voters Thursday but raised concerns by leaving open the option of dividing Jerusalem, and likewise raised eyebrows playing up old Jewish stereotypes. “I’m leaving for Israel in a very short period of time,” he told the Jewish Republican Coalition in Washington DC during a campaign stop in which he sought to burnish his Jewish ties. His daughter Ivanka converted to Judaism upon her marriage, as a result is no longer reachable on Shabbat he joked.
But despite warm applause and laughter, the tycoon was booed when he refused to call Jerusalem the undivided capital of Israel, saying he first wanted to meet Binyamin Netanyahu. Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, Trump’s competitors, said earlier at the Jewish Republican Coalition on Thursday that they would move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, in a starkly different approach to the 3,000-year-old capital of the Jewish people.

(Charisma) In the midst of “prayer-shaming” and calls that “God is not fixing this,” thousands gathered at the 66ers stadium and churches around the country to proclaim San Bernardino for God. The shooting by a married couple, which has yet to be determined as workplace violence or domestic terrorism—left 14 dead and 17 injured. But the death toll isn’t deterring church leaders.

(Los Angeles Times) President Obama’s refusal to use the term “radical Islamic terrorism” indicates that “there is something going on with him that we don’t know about,” Republican front-runner Donald Trump said Thursday, an ominous comment that echoed Trump’s history of questioning Obama’s birthplace and airing of false claims that he practices Islam.
The comment, delivered at a forum of Republican Jewish fundraisers and activists in Washington, was made in response to the rampage in San Bernardino. It was one of several remarks and themes in Trump’s improvised speech on Thursday that showed his ability to make provocative statements that would likely land other presidential candidates in trouble, but seem routine in the context of Trump’s campaign. The speech by Trump, the real estate magnate, was also notable for touching on Jewish stereotypes – with references to money and negotiating skills — that drew rebukes from some Jewish conservatives on Twitter but were received with some laughter from the audience.

At the White House, Press Secretary Josh Earnest praised moderate Muslims around the world, telling Americans that the United States is not at war with Islam. “The president has been disturbed by a lot of the political rhetoric that we’ve seen,” Earnest said, although he added that Obama was confident that the majority of Americans would not target Muslims as a result of acts of terror. Earnest made his remarks after he was questioned by White House reporters asking why the president refused to use the term “radical Islamic terrorism.”
“It has been instrumental to our efforts against groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS and other terrorist organizations to make clear that the United States is at war with those organizations but we’re not at war with Islam,” he said. “We’re not at war with Muslims around the world.” He called the actions of moderate Muslims around the world “instrumental” to the fight against violent extremist terror organizations and praised “patriotic American Muslims” who served in the military.

For six hours yesterday, a politically correct cover up took place following the despicable mass shooting in San Bernardino. For the first hour, we were told the masked gunmen — two or three of them — were white, dressed in military fatigues. The media didn’t know the exact number of assailants, but they knew, even with masks on, they were white. One source tried to tie the location of the shooting to Planned Parenthood, but when that didn’t pan out, it was good enough to report the location of the nearest Planned Parenthood — only a mile and a half away from the actual crime scene, the Inland Regional Center, which serves developmentally disabled individuals.
Once the name of the primary shooter — Syed Rizwan Farook — was released, CNN didn’t use it for two hours. The truth, revealed in off-the-record police statements, presents a much different story. The shooting was identified as Islamic terrorism within the first hour, and the FBI was involved almost from the beginning. “They were telling us after they had the name and address of Syed Farook, they didn’t think this was Islamic,” Glenn said during The Glenn Beck Program Thursday morning. “They weren’t sure this was terror. The state and the media has bent over backwards to protect, not the Muslim, but the Islamist.” READ MORE

Our Time is Short
What is The Gospel?
God made everything out of nothing, including you and me. His main purpose in creation was to bring him pleasure.
The chief way in which we as humanity do this is through loving, obeying, and enjoying him perfectly.
Instead of this, we have sinned against our loving Creator and acted in high-handed rebellion.
God has vowed that he will righteously and lovingly judge sinners with eternal death.
But God, being merciful, loving, gracious, and just, sent his own son, Jesus Christ, in the likeness of man to live as a man; fulfilling his perfect requirements in the place of sinners; loving, obeying, and enjoying him perfectly.
And further, his son bore the eternal judgment of God upon the cross of Calvary, as he satisfied the eternal anger of God, standing in the place of sinners. God treated Jesus as a sinner, though he was perfectly sinless, that he might declare sinners as perfect.
This glorious transaction occurs as the sinner puts their faith (dependence, trust) in the Lord Jesus Christ as their substitute. God then charges Christ’s perfection to the sinner, and no longer views him as an enemy but instead an adopted son covered in the perfect righteousness of his son.
God furnished proof that this sacrifice was accepted by raising Jesus from the dead.
God will judge the world in righteousness and all of those who are not covered in the righteousness of Christ, depending on him for forgiveness, will be forced to stand on their own to bear the eternal anger of God.
Therefore, all must turn from sin and receive Christ Jesus as Lord.
There is no greater message to be heard than that which we call the gospel. But as important as that is, it is often given to massive distortions or over simplifications. People think they’re preaching the gospel to you when they tell you, ‘you can have a purpose to your life’, or that ‘you can have meaning to your life’, or that ‘you can have a personal relationship with Jesus.’ All of those things are true, and they’re all important, but they don’t get to the heart of the gospel.
The gospel is called the ‘good news’ because it addresses the most serious problem that you and I have as human beings, and that problem is simply this: God is holy and He is just, and I’m not. And at the end of my life, I’m going to stand before a just and holy God, and I’ll be judged. And I’ll be judged either on the basis of my own righteousness–or lack of it –or the righteousness of another. The good news of the gospel is that Jesus lived a life of perfect righteousness, of perfect obedience to God, not for His own well being but for His people. He has done for me what I couldn’t possibly do for myself. But not only has He lived that life of perfect obedience, He offered Himself as a perfect sacrifice to satisfy the justice and the righteousness of God.
The great misconception in our day is this: that God isn’t concerned to protect His own integrity. He’s a kind of wishy-washy deity, who just waves a wand of forgiveness over everybody. No. For God to forgive you is a very costly matter. It cost the sacrifice of His own Son. So valuable was that sacrifice that God pronounced it valuable by raising Him from the dead – so that Christ died for us, He was raised for our justification. So the gospel is something objective. It is the message of who Jesus is and what He did. And it also has a subjective dimension. How are the benefits of Jesus subjectively appropriated to us? How do I get it? The Bible makes it clear that we are justified not by our works, not by our efforts, not by our deeds, but by faith–and by faith alone. The only way you can receive the benefit of Christ’s life and death is by putting your trust in Him–and in Him alone. You do that, you’re declared just by God, you’re adopted into His family, you’re forgiven of all of your sins, and you have begun your pilgrimage for eternity.
If you picked up a hitchhiker (not that I recommend doing that) and he saw a Bible on your car seat and said, “I’ve heard about this thing called the Gospel – can you explain it to me before you drop me off in one minute up the street?” What would you say?
Can you explain the gospel in 30 seconds? In one minute? In five minutes?
Here’s one way I have found helpful. The five main components of the gospel can be remembered on 5 fingers of one hand. Here they are:
1) Jesus’ birth
2) Jesus’ life
3) Jesus’ death
4) Jesus’ resurrection
5) Jesus’ ascension
Obviously each point can be elaborated on depending on how much time you have. Here’s the short version:
1) Jesus’ birth – Jesus, God himself, the creator of the universe, the Messiah, became a human being – took on flesh, and was born of a virgin.
2) Jesus’ life – Jesus lived a life of perfect obedience to his Father. Though he was tempted in every way as we are, he never once sinned.
3) Jesus’ death – on the cross, Jesus himself took all our sins and paid for them. God the father counted all our sins to Jesus as if he himself had personally committed them. Then Jesus bore God’s wrath towards sin – the punishment we deserved – as a substitute for us.
4) Jesus’ resurrection – within 3 days, Jesus rose physically from the dead, proving that his sacrifice for sins have been accepted by God, since the punishment for sin was death. Jesus was seen by numerous people after he rose including 500 at one time (1 Corinthians 15).
5) Jesus’ ascension – Jesus ascended physically into heaven where he reigns as King of kings and Lord of lords. And someday he will return to the earth.
That’s the gospel, the good news, and if we believe in Jesus Christ and this good news and call upon him he will save us from our sins and give us eternal life.
That’s a simple way to remember the gospel – five fingers. Even a child can do it. So ask God to give you opportunities to share his good news today.
Ready to start your new life with God?
Who do you think that I am?
With that brief question Jesus Christ confronted His followers with the most important issue they would ever face. He had spent much time with them and made some bold claims about His identity and authority. Now the time had come for them either to believe or deny His teachings.
Who do you say Jesus is? Your response to Him will determine not only your values and lifestyle, but your eternal destiny as well.
