SEVEN DEADLY SINS?
by Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)

ARE WE ALL GUILTY OFF THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS?

Is this generation guilty of the seven deadly sins, as catalogued by medieval theologians?

YES, we are guilty of the seven deadly sins!  And this consensus of opinion comes from groups as diverse as ecologists, historians and theologians!

According to Richard Pollay, historian at University of British Columbia, the values behind modern advertising look much like the seven deadly sins.

States Pollay, "But the other side of the coin is almost absent.  Ads don't encourage compassion, selflessness and the values that build a strong community"!

The business community has for many years succumbed to the "dog eat dog" value system, in aggressive and often unethical competition among its members. And we've known for a long time, that advertising agencies exploit everything available, in their quest for business.

What are the 7 Seven deadly sins, How to conquer the devil and sin. Bible scriptures verses on sin, Bible articles on sin, the Wages of Sin, How to be forgiven of sinsADVERTISING AGENCIES EXPLOIT THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS

Like sex (lust), for example. Scantily dressed, sensual females, selling anything from holiday packages to automobiles, to lingerie to a night out at the cabaret!

And a ruggedly handsome cowboy promoting "cancer-causing" cigarettes, or an elegantly dressed, jet-setting young couple, standing beside a deluxe car in the driveway of a super expensive home...promoting vodka! (greed)!

Some years ago (Dec. 1998), Alberta's Telus (phone company) came out with a Christmas television commercial with 3 wise men bringing gifts, supposedly to the Christ-Child (He was not shown). Their gifts consisted of gold, frankincense & a mobile telephone from Telus. After a lot of callers objected, the ad was pulled!

When contacted by the TV media, I voiced my opposition declaring, "Nothing is sacred or holy anymore! Nothing is off limits to the materialistic, secular humanistic MINDSET! It shows a terrible lack of sensitivity and reverence for God & the Bible!"

"This is but another calculated move by an unthinking, secular & materialistic advertising agency to utilize a part of the Christmas Story to further the economic goals of the TELUS Corporation. We do not agree with that concept. They have crossed over the line of decency and good taste! This practice must stop! We won't put up with it!"

Now, an advertising historian is saying the same thing. Our advertising value-system is seriously flawed! And that's upsetting, when you consider the thousands of ads we are all subjected to through radio, television, billboards and printed materials.

IT'S NO WONDER THAT A LOT OF CHILDREN ARE GREEDY, SELFISH, ENVIOUS! They want everything they see, and have a problem sharing what they have with others.

The same could be said about many adults who have become narcissistic and hedonistic in their approach to life. This corrupted value system helped spawn the Me Generation, 'if it feels good, do it' attitude and the present YUPPIE mentality.

Seven 7 Deadly Sins, What are the 7 Seven deadly sins, Are we guilty of 7 seven deadly sinsTHE WORLD HAS BEEN PLAYING GOD & ABUSING THE PLANET

The Asian economic recession has taken a big bite out of the economic pie and a lot of people are frustrated and let down.

And the news about the depletion of the ozone layer causing enormous increases in skin cancer, possible global warming, a deteriorating eco-system and the stampeding HIV and AIDS endemic, is causing people to rethink their philosophy of life.

Unfortunately, large numbers are rudderless without any proper spiritual and moral grounding in God's Word, the Bible...so become fair game for the deceptive occultist and pagan teachings of the New Age Movement and other cults.

Several years ago Newsweek named the guilty nations which are adding to the destruction of our planet. They presented their own list of the "seven deadly sins" in an attack on polluters.

Newsweek's special report titled, Earth at the Summit details the three important items on the table at Earth Summit '92, in Rio de Janeiro:

1) Global Warming: A treaty intended to curb emissions of "greenhouse gases" - principally carbon dioxide - but without specific target or timetables.

2) Agenda 21: A plan for the industrial nations to help poor countries develop their economies without ruining their environments - or the planet's. Estimated cost: US $125 billion per year.

3) Biodiversity: A treaty to slow the loss of endangered species. One approach, give countries royalties for products (such as drugs) that are developed from indigenous plants and animals

Are we guilty of 7 seven deadly sins. Bible scriptures verses on sins, Bible articles on sin, how to be forgiven of sinECOLOGIST'S HAVE MADE THEIR OWN LIST OF THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS

The Newsweek report stated, "Adam was supposed to be the first environmentalist - the caretaker in Paradise, even a vegetarian. His fall doomed us to repeat his sins, time and again despoiling the garden, and casting ourselves into a more imperfect world".

Here are the Ecologist's  7 SEVEN DEADLY SINS: despair, gluttony, temptation, hubris, neglect, envy and hatred.

The ecologist's blame the condition of the world on their own list of the seven deadly sins.  This is the list they have devised:  despair, gluttony, temptation, hubris, neglect, envy and hatred.

Ecologist's deadly sin list #1 - Despair. Sins, Sins & Morals, The wages of sin, Sins, how to be forgiven of sins, Seven 7 Deadly Sins, What are the 7 Seven deadly sins, How to conquer the devil.  The 7 deadly sins are pride ,lust, greed, envy, anger, gluttony and slothEcologist Sin #1 - DESPAIR - Despair: For the poor in the large city ghettoes of Third World nations like Brazil, the only real concern is getting enough to eat, staying alive using whatever means to do it.

With open sewers and inadequate clean water supply, speaking to them about pollution control and global warming, is totally irrelevant. They are filled with worry and despair.

Ecologist's deadly sin list #1 - Gluttony. Sins, Sins & Morals, The wages of sin, Sins, how to be forgiven of sins, Seven 7 Deadly Sins, What are the 7 Seven deadly sins, How to conquer the devil.  The 7 deadly sins are pride ,lust, greed, envy, anger, gluttony and slothEcologist Sin #2 - GLUTTONY  - Gluttony: Americans have an insatiable desire for raw materials. They can consume anything. The European immigrants cut down all but 5% of their forests, since arriving in the New World. Ecologists are blaming the rich Americans for consuming more than necessary, further polluting the planet!

Ecologist's deadly sin list #1 - Temptation. Sins, Sins & Morals, The wages of sin, Sins, how to be forgiven of sins, Seven 7 Deadly Sins, What are the 7 Seven deadly sins, How to conquer the devil.  The 7 deadly sins are pride ,lust, greed, envy, anger, gluttony and slothEcologist Sin #3 - TEMPTATION - Temptation: Polluters cannot resist the temptation to dump raw sewage in the rivers, lakes and streams of the world. The greatest offenders are nations like Mexico and US companies which have moved their operations there, to take advantage of lax pollution laws.

Ecologist's deadly sin list #1 - Hubris. Sins, Sins & Morals, The wages of sin, Sins, how to be forgiven of sins, Seven 7 Deadly Sins, What are the 7 Seven deadly sins, How to conquer the devil.  The 7 deadly sins are pride ,lust, greed, envy, anger, gluttony and slothEcologist Sin #4 - HUBRIS - Hubris:  The meaning of hubris is insolence or arrogance caused by inordinate pride; exaggerated self-confidence.

For years the Soviet Union tried to play God with nature. In 1960, it diverted two rivers that fed the Aral Sea in order to irrigate the arid lands of Central Asia. The chickens have come home to roost and the water level in the Aral is down two-thirds, leaving boats and towns stranded and drifting salt storms.

Ecologist's deadly sin list #1 - Neglect. Sins, Sins & Morals, The wages of sin, Sins, how to be forgiven of sins, Seven 7 Deadly Sins, What are the 7 Seven deadly sins, How to conquer the devil.  The 7 deadly sins are pride ,lust, greed, envy, anger, gluttony and slothEcologist Sin #5 - NEGLECT - Neglect: The pollution caused by decades of communistic rule in the East-Bloc nations - with their disregard for human life - has severely retarded these nations, affecting the health of millions. Unsafe nuclear plants - like Chernobyl - and the virtually unchecked dumping of raw, hazardous wastes into waterways like the Elbe River has turned them into "sewers of death".

The 7 deadly sins are pride ,lust, greed, envy, anger, gluttony and slothEcologist Sin #6 - ENVY - Envy: In her rush to catch up to the west economically, China has thrown caution to the wind and also endangered the population with deadly gases from hundreds of factories. In Benxi - the world's most polluted city - 200 factories spew out more than 87 million cubic meters of gases each year. And Beijing is so smoggy that at times it vanishes from satellite photos.

Ecologist's deadly sin list #1 - Hatred. Sins, Sins & Morals, The wages of sin, Sins, how to be forgiven of sins, Seven 7 Deadly Sins, What are the 7 Seven deadly sins, How to conquer the devil.  The 7 deadly sins are pride ,lust, greed, envy, anger, gluttony and slothEcologist Sin #7 - HATRED - Hatred: When Saddam Hussein - Iraq's cruel despot - retreated from Kuwait - he deliberately ordered the destruction of 700 oil wells. Black smoke hung over that nation for nearly one year, polluting the entire region, until the fires were put out.

He also released millions of gallons of oil into the gulf waters, polluting, killing and destroying marine life, birds and insects, endangering the underground water supply and causing respiratory diseases in humans!

The damage of his terrorism will last for years to come and the cost of the clean-up could total $20 billion, says Ibrahim Hadi, president of Kuwait's Environmental Protection Agency!

GOD HAS THE FINAL WORD ON THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS

The Bible has a lot to say about sin. Jesus was outspoken on the subject.

Jesus  used the word "eaven" as an analogy of sin, which rises and expands like leaven. The Lord Jesus  also paralleled it with tares or weeds in a field, that seek to choke out the good grain.

But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness." (1 Timothy 6:10-11)

The third deadly sin is lust. The Bible says, Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth for sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death."

"If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also." (1 John 2:11; 1 John 3:15; 1 John 4:20-21)

#7 - SLOTH Seven 7 Deadly Sins, What are the 7 Seven deadly sins, Are we guilty of 7 seven deadly sins?#7 - SLOTH goes hand in hand with laziness and poverty. St. Paul stated, "Be not slothful in business". (Romans 12:11)

"For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.

And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises." (Hebrews  6:10-12)

REMEMBER  - GOD HAS THE FINAL SAY IN EVERYTHING

The Bible is the Word of God.  Don't ever forget that God, our Lord keeps the books.  God, the creator or the world has the final say in everything.

There is only one way to be freed from these 'seven deadly sins' and that is through the process of the New Birth. Only faith in Jesus Christ's death for us on the cross and His glorious resurrection from the dead, brings us into a vital contact with His saving blood.

"Jesus said, "Come unto Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28)

HOW TO BE FORGIVEN
 OF SINS?
by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D

Sins, Sins & Moral Values, The wages of sin, Sins, how to be forgiven of sins, Bible articles sermons sins, how to be free of sin.. Bible scriptures sin, evil, repentance,forgiveness, forgiveness of sins,SIN IS REAL - WE ARE ALL SINNERS

Sin is real, says famed psychiatrist Dr. Karl Menninger. The highly acclaimed psychiatrist is distressed by modern society's failure to understand that many of man's problems are caused by sin.

It annoys him to hear people discuss morality without so much as mentioning the word "SIN".

WHEN WE DISCOVER THE ROOT OF OUR PROBLEMS - WE CAN  DEAL WITH THEM

Menninger believes that in order to raise civilization's moral tone and deal with depression, anxiety and worry, people must learn the root cause of their problems.

And the root cause in many instances is a person's unwillingness to take responsibility for his own actions, but rather lay the blame on someone - or something - else!

Several decades ago, George W. Cornell of the Associated Press (AP) wrote a column titled 'Word Sin Disappears But Remains A Fact', in which he quoted at great length Dr. Karl Menninger's beliefs on this subject.

ARE IMMORALITY & UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR SIN?

"He says the realities of personal guilt and sin have been glossed over as symptoms of emotional illness or environmental conditioning for which the individual is not considered responsible, but he adds:

"There is sin...which cannot be subsumed under verbal artifacts such as 'disease', 'delinquency', 'deviancy'. There is immorality. There is unethical behavior. There is wrong doing."

WHATEVER BECAME OF SIN?

Cornell states: "He calls for a reaffirmation of the concept of sin and of personal responsibility for it. "  In a new book published by Hawthorne called 'Whatever Became of Sin?' he declares:

"In the concept of personal responsibility and answerability for ourselves and for others were to return to common acceptance, hope would return to the world with it.

We have the father of psycho-analysis, Sigmund Freud - who was battling his own weird and kinky imaginations and habits - to thank for much of that!

The founder of the Menninger Centre in Topeka, Kansas, is seeking to correct the situation by addressing the problem.

SIN HAS A DEFIANT, DISLOYAL QUALITY

His latest book, Whatever Became of Sin?, describes the subject as "a transgression of the law of God; disobedience of the divine will; moral failure...Sin has a defiant, or disloyal quality; someone is defiled or offended or hurt."

Modern psychiatry often lets people off the hook. And failure to bring offenders face to face with their error could produce a sense of vindication, without coming to grips with the problem; the need to change lifestyles.

When we accept responsibility for our sin and repent of our sins it brings up freedom from guilt, shame and anxiety. Bible articles sermons sins, how to be free of sin.. Bible scriptures sin, evil, repentance,forgiveness, forgiveness of sins,ACCEPTING RESPONSIBILITY & REPENTING BRINGS FREEDOM FROM GUILT & ANXIETY

Menninger has successfully treated thousands of clients for more than a half century and has proven that acceptance of responsibility coupled with repentance, often brings freedom from guilt and anxiety. The refusal to confront the problem only compounds it by giving at the very best, temporary relief.

Thousands of years ago, King David stated: "He that confesseth and forsaketh his sin shall have mercy, but he that covereth his sin shall not prosper." (Proverbs 28:13)

FORGIVENESS IS THE KEY TO MENTAL HEALTH

Forgiveness is vital to good mental health. We must forgive others if we expect God to forgive us, as well as being able to forgive ourselves.

A leading psychiatrist noted that 90% of the mentally ill could be immediately well if they were able to forgive themselves and others and to receive forgiveness!

It is difficult for an individual to forgive himself without the assurance that God has forgiven him.

That is why the gospel  - CONFESSION, REPENTANCE and FORGIVENESS - is so relevant and necessary!

IF WE CONFESS OUR SIN GOD IS FAITHFUL TO FORGIVE OUR SIN

The Bible states emphatically: "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)     "But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin." (1 John 1:7)

Some health officials, in explaining their AIDS program, go to great lengths promoting condoms, as well as sexual abstinence. Then they usually add: "THIS IS NOT A MORAL ISSUE".

How ridiculous. Of course it's a moral issue!

If our young people had higher morals there wouldn't be such a problem with drug abuse, fornication or homosexual problems which puts them at risk for the AIDS virus.

A RISE IN MORAL VALUES WOULD DECREASE SEXUAL DISEASES

If people were more moral and stuck with the Bible standard of "one woman -- one man", there wouldn't be such a dramatic increase in sexually transmitted diseases.

A RISE IN MORAL VALUES WOULD ELIMINATE SO MUCH SIN

It goes without saying, violence would be almost non-existent and crime, rape and child abuse would drop drastically.

WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS IS A MORAL REVOLUTION!

There are signs that a moral revolution is coming. During an earlier Canadian election, former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney was accused of lying. Constituents were sending politicians the message: "We won't tolerate dishonesty."

how to be free of sin.. Bible scriptures sin, evil, repentance,forgiveness, forgiveness of sins,MORAL VALUES ARE NECESSARY FOR A THRIVING ECONOMY

During the last general election in Canada, Prime Minister Jean Chretien was accused of breaking three earlier election promises which included the promise to scrap the hated "GST".  In the recent US Presidential election, nearly all candidates were speaking about values. Why? People understand that a sense of moral values is not only important, but necessary.

America's annual "SIN BILL" topped more than a half a trillion dollars in 1987.

Dr. Charles Ewing of The National Statesman said that Americans spent $144 billion for liquor, $177 billion on gambling, $110 billion on drugs, $73 billion on tobacco and $40 billion on pornography!

TEENAGERS, OUR GREATEST COMMODITY - are being threatened by violence, murder, drugs, alcoholism & suicide.

An article by Dr. Robert Blum in the Journal of American Medical Association states: "Over the past 30 years, adolescents have been the only population in the US who have not experienced improvement in their health status."

According to Blum, 77% of adolescent deaths were caused by accidents and violence, including self-inflicted violence. And there was a shocking four-fold increase in suicides & murders!

A US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report states: "Of the 10,250 kids born today...one will die and four will sustain serious or crippling injuries in an alcohol related crash before they reach the age of 24."

A SERIOUS WARNING - "THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH"

This is a very sobering, serious warning about sin, accidents and death! May we all take a lesson from these tragic statistics, realizing that "The wages of sin is death."

Sins, how to be forgiven of sins, Bible articles sermons sins, how to be free of sin.. Bible scriptures sin, evil, repentance,forgiveness, forgiveness of sins,WHAT MUST I DO TO BE FORGIVEN OF MY SINS?

You may say, "All you have stated is true! But what must I do to be forgiven and freed from my sins?" The Bible says, "If we confess our sins (to God) He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness". (1 John 1:9)

George W. Cornell writes: "Menninger says that just as it is inadequate for a clergyman to give only pastoral counseling to a schizophrenic, it is inadequate for a psychiatrist to treat a symptom like sleeplessness of a man involved in wicked rascality."

Sins, Sins & Moral Values, The wages of sin, Sins, how to be forgiven of sins, Bible articles sermons sins, how to be free of sin.. Bible scriptures sin, evil, repentance,forgiveness, forgiveness of sins,REPENTANCE OF SIN IS VALUABLE!

"It does little good to repent a symptom, but it may do great harm not to repent a sin. Vice-versa, it does little good to merely psychoanalyze a sin and sometimes a great harm to ignore a symptom."

He says recognizing the fact of voluntarily willed sin is "the only hopeful view", since it implies the possibility of repenting and correcting it. He adds:

"The logical reasonable effective solution for tension reduction in such circumstances is to make atonement, as the theologians call it, or as we say, by restitution, acknowledgement and revised tactics."

As the situation now is "vague amorphous evil appears all around us" with the presumption that "no one is responsible, no one guilty" and that there is 'just nothing to do'. BUT, THERE IS SOMETHING WE CAN DO!

The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sins.  Jesus died on the cross so we could be forgiven of sins. Bible scriptures and articles on sin, seven deadly sinsTHE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST CLEANSES US FROM ALL SIN 

"But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin". (1 John 1:7)

The Bible says: "... But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord". (Romans 6:23)

 


YOUR SINS 
WILL BE PUNISHED

What does the Bible say?
by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.. 

1 John 3:4 -Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law."

THE BIBLE SAYS YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW

The ancient Jew, Saul of Tarsas gave us some good advice in the New Testmament: "Be not deceived, God is not mocked: whatsoever a man soweth, that shall re reap." (Galatians 6:7)"For the wages of sin (is) death: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)

Sins, Sins & Moral Values, The wages of sin, Sins, how to be forgiven of sinsLORD BYRON'S WORDS OF WARNING - You reap what you sow - your sins will be punished

The thorns of the tree that I have planted, have reaped me: and I have bled.  I should have known that such fruit would have sprung, from such a seed.  - Lord Byron

Hindsight is always better than foresight, and the pride of experience is often very costly.  Lord Byron must have written out of personal experience, in order to drive home such a powerful message in so few words.  Lord Byron realized that he was reaping what he sowed.

The people is both lament, a sign of regret and a confession of a reckless, foolish and willful act.

Lord Byron's poem is more than that.  It is an admonition and warning to others who might make the same mistakes, watch what you do, be careful what you reap in life, because you will show it in the end,

Byron makes a lot of sense.  Too bad he could not have got through to Sigmund Freud before the he put together his harmful 'psycho analysis' package and before he hooked on the merits of cocaine use among professionals and others.

WHINERS BLAME OTHER PEOPLE

If Byron could have gotten his message of 'you reap what you sow' across to Sigmund Freud, we possibly  wouldn't today have an entire generation blaming other people for their problems, which in many cases are self inflicted.  These people are reaping what they sowed.  They are reaping the rewards of a negative life style.  They are reaping the rewards of bad decisions and a destructive lifestyle.

ITS EASY TO BLAME OTHERS FOR YOUR PROBLEMS

'Be not deceived, God is not mocked; whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he reap.' 
(Galatians  6:7)

Its so easy to blame it on George or Mary, when in fact, 'it's not my brother or my sister, but it's me, O Lord, that's standing in the need of prayer.'

PRESIDENT HENRY TRUMAN SAID 'the buck stops here'.

Lord Byron's choice in words is so notable: 'The thorns of the tree that I have planted, have reaped me!'.

Lord Byron takes full responsibility for his own actions.  And the thorns reap him, he does not reap the thorns, although he often say, 'You'll reap what you sow'.

Byron brings home even more powerfully - 'The results of your wrong doing will follow you, track you down and punish you.  Your sins will be punished.  You will reap what you sow.'

There is an old saying, 'You've made your bed; now you must sleep in  it.'

PROMISCUITY BRINGS PUNISHMENT

If you don't believe that promiscuity brings punishment, ask the homosexual who frequented gay bars and is now dying with AIDS.  If you don't believe that you 'reap what you sow', ask the promiscuous swinger who "slept around" and now has genital herpes or the teenager who has to sell her body to satisfy the craving in her veins and the demands of an "evil pimp".

John Evans celebrated his 109th birthday in 1986, receiving hundreds of congratulatory greetings - among those one signed Elizabeth R.

When interviewed on BBC Television as to the secret of his longevity, the Welshman stated. "I never drank alcohol or smoked and I don't swear."  His mind was clear as a well, his speech impeccable and his manner polite.

As I tried to analyze the weight of his words, I suddenly realized the greatness of his philosophy. Its not smart to smoke, its not smart to drink alcohol and its not smart to swear.

ITS NOT SMART TO SMOKE

When I was a teenager, it was smart to SMOKE; teachers, doctors, liberal clergymen, politicians and farmers smoked.  Only prudes and religious evangelicals didn'T smoke.  Many athletes smoked.  I must confess that when I won the Saskatchewan title for the half mile, I had cigarettes in my locker.

Things have certainly changed in the past 5 decades.  Now, if you are a smoker, people shun you.  You're considered an air polluter, a safety hazard and a poor insurance risk.

And if you continue smoking, the odds are good that the local undertaker will have your name on his files before long.

YOU DO REAP WHAT YOU SOW
It's sad, but Byron warned us - didn't he? "I should have known that such fruit would have sprung from such a seed."

DRINKING is a scourge in our land. Even though it still seems popular to drink socially, the cost to our society is enormous.  Thousands of highway deaths through alcohol related accidents, millions of dollars spent on welfare due to broken marriages, as well as the  poor job performance of the "half man."

WHY DO PEOPLE SWEAR?

It took me a while to figure out that one.  Why do people swear?  Some people swear because they have a poor vocabulary and use oaths as a fill in.  Others think they are macho or wit it when they swear, and it gives them a sense of authority.

Many people, however, swear because they are frustrated, any, jealous or bitter. And all these contribute to ulcers, heart trouble, insomnia, high blood pressure and death.

Have we forgotten the 3rd commandment that states: "Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain." (Exodus 20:7)

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO TAKE THE LORD'S NAME IN VAIN?

If you use the name of God, the Lord or Jesus Christ in any way as a negative such as in swearing, cursing and damning people, you are take the Lord's name in vain.  The Lord's name is Holy and is to be used only in prayer, praise or speaking of the Lord.

THE LORD WILL NOT FIND YOU GUILTLESS FOR TAKING HIS NAME IN VAIN

When you use the Lord's name in vain you are breaking this commandment. (Exodus 20:7)  No wonder so many people struggle through life with a host of problems, setbacks, tragedies and turmoil, when they constantly curse and swear.  If you break this commandment you will reap what you sow.

Finally, that ancient Jew, Saul of Tarsus gave us some good advice in the New Testament.  "Be not deceived.  God is not mocked: whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he reap".  (Galatians 6:7)

The Bible says, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)  The truth of the matter is that we have all sinned.  "For the wages of sin (is) death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)

We are all guilt and we have all sinned, but there is good news.  Jesus Christ died for the ungodly.  He took our place and paid our penalty.  YOUR SINS CAN BE FORGIVEN.  Jesus Christ is willing to forgive your sins and set you free.  You will no longer continue to live a life of sin.

"For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.  But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. "  (Romans 5:6-9)

It seems to me that Evans, Byron and St. Paul must have got their good advice from the same source.

WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?

You may say, "That well and good for them, but WHAT ABOUT ME?  What should I do to change my unhappy and sinful lifestyle?  What do I need to do in order to get some meaning in my life"?

Only Jesus Christ has the power to transform any life, including yours, my friend.  The good news is that you can change the course of your life, you can reap good things, so that you sow good things.  You can change the patterns of your life and in doing so, what you reap will be positive, good things - instead of bad, negative results.

Simply approach God our Heavenly Father in prayer in the Name of His Son, Jesus Christ and He will forgive you and give you Eternal Life and something to live for.

The Bible says, "If any man (person) be in Christ Jesus he is a new creation.  Old things are passed away, all things become new." (2 Corinthians 5:17)

And remember that God loves you and desires to give you fulfillment, peace, joy and happiness.


Are You ready to Meet God? Is your name written in the book of life? How to get to Heaven, Bible scriptures on Jesus Christ, heaven, death of Jesus. ARE YOU READY 
TO MEET GOD?

by: Pastor Max Solbrekken, D.D.

CAN I ASK YOU A QUESTION?  ARE YOU READY TO MEET GOD?

The most important question I could ask you and the most important decision of your entire lifetime revolves around the spiritual welfare of your soul and its eternal destiny.

There are preachers today who have soft-soaped the Gospel and watered down God's word to please their listeners in order to keep their parishioners coming to church.

They are afraid that if they preach the truth, as it is written, people will not like it and their offering plates will not bring in too much money.

The Bible warns that this would be the case in the end time, of which we are now living. (2 Timothy 3:13) (2 Timothy 4:3-4). The Apostle Paul calls such preachers Food Preachers or Belly Preachers. (Romans 16:18) (Philippians 3:19) These men only preach to earn a living and not to win men and women to Jesus Christ.

I'm going to be absolutely honest with you and tell you the complete truth as found in God's Word concerning your soul, death, judgment, heaven, hell and eternity and the gift of salvation. Then I will also show you how you can be saved and forgiven by the precious blood of Jesus Christ.

Your Soul will never die. Are You ready to Meet God? Is your name written in the book of life? How to get to Heaven, Bible scriptures on Jesus Christ, heaven, death of Jesus. Are you ready to meet God? Are you prepared for eternity? What must I do to be ready to meet God? Salvation, how can I be saved. What must I do to be saved? Salvation message#1 - YOUR SOUL WILL NEVER DIE

Your soul is eternal and will live on even after your body dies. (Genesis 2:7)

Standing before God on judgment day is one appointment you can't cancel or postpone. Are You ready to Meet God? Is your name written in the book of life? How to get to Heaven, Bible scriptures on Jesus Christ, heaven, death of Jesus. #2 - ONE APPOINTMENT YOU CAN'T CANCEL OR POSTPONE

"It is appointed unto man once to die but after this the judgment." (Hebrews 9:27)

You can't fool God. Standing before God on judgment day is one appointment you can't cancel or postpone. Are You ready to Meet God? Is your name written in the book of life? How to get to Heaven, Bible scriptures on Jesus#3 - YOU CAN'T FOOL GOD

"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." (Galatians 6:7) "Be sure your sin will find you out." (Numbers 32:23)

You will pay for your sins if your don't repent. Standing before God on judgment day is one appointment you can't cancel or postpone. Are You ready to Meet God? Is your name written in the book of life? How to get to Heaven, Bible scriptures on Jesus Christ, heaven, death of Jesus. #4 - YOU'LL PAY FOR YOUR SINS IF YOU DON'T REPENT OF THEM

"The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23) "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." (Psalms 9:17) 

"When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all the nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divided his sheep from the goats: 

And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 

Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal." (Matthew 25:31-34, 41, 46)

Are you ready to meet God? Are you prepared for eternity? What must I do to be ready to meet God? Salvation, how can I be saved. What must I do to be saved? Salvation message#5 - ALL HAVE SINNED

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23) "And we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 53:6) "There is none righteous, no, no one." (Romans 3:10)

Jesus died to save sinners. Standing before God on judgment day is one appointment you can't cancel or postpone. Are You ready to Meet God? Is your name written in the book of life? How to get to Heaven, Bible scriptures on Jesus Christ, heaven, death of Jesus. #6 - JESUS DIED TO SAVE SINNERS

Jesus said, "For I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance", (Matthew 9:13) and "For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost." (Matthew 18:11)

"He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5)

"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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved." (John 3:16-17)

Are you ready to meet God? Are you prepared for eternity? What must I do to be ready to meet God? Salvation, how can I be saved. What must I do to be saved? Salvation message#7 - YOU MUST REPENT OF YOUR SINS

"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy." (Proverbs 28:13) 

"Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." (Isaiah 55:7)

"Except ye repent ye shall all likewise perish." (Luke 13:5)

#8 - YOU MUST BELIEVE THE GOSPEL

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:9-10)

#9 - ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOUR BY FAITH

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9) "Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28) "Come now, and let us reason together saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isaiah 1:18) "Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out." (John 6:37)

Are you ready to meet God? Are you prepared for eternity? What must I do to be ready to meet God? Salvation, how can I be saved. What must I do to be saved? Salvation message#10 - HE WILL GIVE YOU THE POWER YOU NEED

"He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name." (John 1:11-12) "Ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." (Acts 1:8)

HOW CAN I BE SAVED?

Many are asking this question today. They are wanting to know how to "make things right with Almighty God." They realize somewhere along the way, they have lost sight of God - they have lost contact with the Eternal One - the Great Creator, God, who loved the world so much that He sent His Son to die for lost humanity.

Multitudes today are groping in darkness - looking for a ray of light to point them to the Heavenly way - but alas, they search in vain, they stumble and fall in the shadows of sin, worry, fear, anxiety, loneliness, heartbreak, sickness and confusion.

Many people have tried to live a better life, turn over a new leaf, rehabilitate themselves, only to find that their strength in the time of testing and temptation has failed and they are back where they started. So now, not only are they defeated, but they are also bewildered, perplexed and tormented, not knowing which way to turn.

Dear Reader, perhaps you are one of these poor unfortunate souls. THEN LISTEN CAREFULLY, for I have good news for you. There is still balm in Gilead for your sin sick soul. There is still deliverance for the bound, victory for the defeated and peace for the troubled. There is still healing for the sick and salvation for the lost.

THERE IS STILL HOPE - LOOK TO JESUS

THERE IS STILL HOPE FOR YOU. There is life for you. There is still forgiveness and happiness for you. LOOK TO JESUS, the author and finisher of your faith, (Hebrews 12:3).

LOOK TO JESUS, the mighty conqueror (Revelation 1:17-18).

LOOK TO JESUS, the Saviour of the World (Luke 2:11).

Don't look at your sinful condition, LOOK TO JESUS; don't look at your hopelessness, frustration and bewilderment, LOOK TO JESUS.

Don't look at your sickness, grief and loneliness, LOOK TO JESUS.

Don't look at your friends of other Christians who have failed, but LOOK TO JESUS who never fails.

The Bible says in Isaiah 45:22, "Look unto me and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God and there is NONE else."

There is only one way to be saved and that is through Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God.

Jesus said in (John 14:6), "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man cometh unto the Father but by me." Jesus said in (John 10:9), "I am the Door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be SAVED, and shall go in and out and find pasture."

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO GO - that way is JESUS. There is only one door to God, and that door is Jesus. There is no other.

Mohammed, Buddha and the Roman Pope, a church organization - none of these will open the doors to the Kingdom of Heaven, but Jesus Christ, the one who came from heaven, who died on the Cross, rose again from the dead - He is able to forgive you, save you and bring you into the Kingdom of God. GLORY TO HIS NAME FOREVER.

The Apostle Peter said in (Acts 4:12) concerning Jesus Christ, "Neither is there Salvation in any other, for there is none other name under Heaven, given among men whereby we must be SAVED." There you have it. the only name that can bring salvation, blessing and deliverance is the Mighty Name of Jesus. The Angel said unto Joseph (Matthew 1:21), "Ye shall call His Name Jesus, for He shall SAVE His people from their sins." In (Romans 10:13) we read, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be SAVED."

The Philippian jailer asked the same question many today are asking and he got an answer he was converted, his life was changed. He met the master, Jesus. You can do the same. There in the prison house he cried out (Acts 16:30), "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" Paul answered, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be Saved." He believed on Jesus Christ and was Saved. you can do the same.

But you ask - how can I believe? What must I do to believe in Jesus Christ? Where do I start? I am glad you asked these questions, because I have the answer for you from God's word - Here is what you must do to be saved.

#1 - REPENT OF YOUR SINS

To be saved you must repent of your sins and see yourself as you really are - You must realize you are lost and undone, without hope. You must see God's Holiness and realize that you have sinned against the Almighty. You must be sorry for your sins, you must hate your sins and be willing to forsake them (Matthew 4:17) your sins have condemned you (John 3:18) your sins have separated you from God (Isaiah 59:2). The Bible says (Romans 3:23), "For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God." Also in (Isaiah 53:6) the word of God says, "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all."

GOD HATES YOUR SINS - but God loves you. God wants to rescue you out of your sins. You must be willing to give yourself completely over to God and turn your back on all unrighteousness.

#2 - YOU MUST CONFESS YOU SINS TO GOD

(1 John 1:9) "If we confess our sins (to God), He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." You must tell God you are a sinner and that you cannot save yourself. You must confess to God that no one else can save you except Jesus Christ. You must ask God to have mercy on you (Luke 18:13) and to forgive you. Then you must confess to God that you believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that Jesus Christ died on the Cross of Calvary for your sins, that He rose again from the dead and that He is able to save you (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) (Hebrews 7:25).

#3 - YOU MUST ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOUR 

Tell God that you accept His pardon and that you now, through faith in God's word accept Jesus Christ into your heart and life. (Ephesians 2:8-9) "For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Salvation is absolutely free - you cannot work for it - you cannot pay for it - It is free - you just receive it from God.

After you have prayed to God asking Him to forgive you - then you must believe He has heard your prayer and forgiven your sins. That is faith. You say that is hard to do. No - it isn't. If you believe that God told the truth and the Bible is God's word - God will do what He said He would do. If you have prayed the sinner's prayer asking God to forgive you, (then he has forgiven you; His word tells you that and His word is the truth) and if you are forgiven, then you are saved. You must then continue to live in God's way - you must live for God. Believe that you are saved, begin to praise and worship God and thank him for saving your soul.

But you have doubts and say, "I don't feel any different." You say you still feel the way you did before, you don't feel like you are saved. Always remember, you are NOT SAVED by your feelings, you are saved by FAITH IN GOD'S WORD. If God said it - it is the truth, whether you feel like it or not. However, when you stand of God's word and by faith accept the Salvation that God offers, you WILL FEEL DIFFERENT.

You will believe before you feel - you will feel the cleansing, you will feel the forgiveness of God, you will feel the assurance when you believe God's word and have confessed Jesus Christ as your Saviour.  (Romans 10:9-10).

You will begin to feel peace, the peace that comes from knowing you are saved, that your sins have been forgiven and you will feel hope and optimism.

The Word of God states (John 6:37), Jesus said, "Him that cometh unto Me, I will in no wise cast out." You have come to Jesus by faith; He has not cast you out - Jesus has taken you in - you are SAVED. Praise God.

Raise your hands to God (in complete obedience and surrender). Say "thank you, Jesus, for saving my soul." Praise Him and Worship Him for what He has done for you.

You are now saved, you have passed from death unto life (John 5:24). Your name has now been written in the "Lamb's Book of Life." (Revelation 20:15) The Angels are rejoicing in Heaven over this great victory over the devil. God has snatched your soul from Satan's grasp and the angels are rejoicing over this. (Luke 15:7)

RISE from you knees full of peace (John 14:27). Now go and tell someone about Jesus Christ and his love. Tell people what God has done for you. (Romans 10:9-10) "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth, the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be SAVED. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto Salvation."

Seek the Lord (James 4:8) and ask Him to fill you with the holy Ghost and Fire.

Ask God to give you power for service (Luke 3:16) (Acts 1:4) (Acts 1:8) (Acts 2:4) (Acts 2:38-39). Read your Bible every day and pray to the Lord Jesus Christ.

As you go about your life, witness to people about Jesus Christ. Find a good church where the pastor and the congregation believe the whole Bible, where they believe in holiness of life and separation from the world.

Find a church where they believe in prayer for the sick and where the pastor and congregation have a burden to see the lost saved and brought to Jesus Christ.

May the Lord bless you and give you peace. Write me a letter if you have accepted the lord Jesus Christ as a result of reading this message.
