Grace Before Meals

First, the person praying should have a clean heart for the Lord to answer a prayer.  If not for this way and condition, he will likely to receive a curse instead of blessings. And whoever will eat the cursed food can do so at their own destruction. Let us not assume that the food with a prayer done by someone else before meals is already clean.

Prov 15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

If you know that you are doing the will of god, why not pray for yourself?  The prayer of a righteous person availeth much but God does not hear the prayer of the wicked.

Is 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Second, A Prayer is a direct communication between you and God so use it wisely. A Voluntary humility not according to the doctrine of Christ is not a sure way to salvation. Only God knows your heart not even satan.

Jer 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Prov 16:25 There is a way that seemeth right to a man, but the end of it is the ways of death.

Prov 16:25 Col 2:18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshiping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

Third, Anywhere and in any way, the prayer must be done in secret that no one can see. Pray in your mind that even the nearest person will never know what you are doing.

Mt 6:5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues, and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Verily, I say to you, they have their reward.

Mat 6:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret, and thy Father who seeth in secret, will reward thee openly.

1 Cor 14:15 What should I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my mind. I will sing praises with my spirit, but I will also sing praises with my mind.

The hypocrites do pray where anyone could see. You can never pray in secret at public places doing the sign of the cross, closing your eyes, holding hands together or sprinkling of water. Any action or gesture that displays an act of prayer publicly is unscriptural and against the will of God.

The desire of your heart is hidden to Satan. Pray in secret to mislead him of his evil ways. If he knows your plan, he will work not to make your wishes to happen. Always remember, no one knows the heart except God.

Baptism With Fire

The first step to salvation is through water baptism.  A method of purification for the forgivenes of sins committed because of not knowing the truth. Before the customary immersion in water,  the recipient should repent first and accept Jesus as his saviour and as the only mediator between God and man.

1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Mk 1:4 John was baptizing in the wilderness, and preaching the baptism of repentance, for the remission of sins.

Water baptism  is the beginning of struggle to perfection.  There are statutes and judgment inside the Church of God that must be followed.  He that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved.   It can be overcome by any person with faith because the yoke is easy and the burden is light.

Jn 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in me ye may have peace. In the world ye will have tribulation, but be of good cheer: I have overcome the world.

1 Jn 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

We must reject the worldly desires of the flesh and set our eyes on things which are not seen because the things which are seen are temporal and things unseen are eternal.

Tit 2:12 Teaching us, that denying ungodliness, and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and piously, in this present world;

We deserve to be part of the promise of eternal life prepared by the Father of lights for those who love him. The just shall live by faith but if any man shall draw back, he failed the test of baptism with fire.

Lk 3:16 John answered, saying to them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit, and with fire:

The love of oneself prevent a believer to follow the teachings and ordinances of the Lord. If anyone will come after Jesus, let him deny himself, and take up the cross daily, and follow him. This is the word of the Lord.

Gays Got What They Deserve?

Are homosexual sinners worse than a church goer sinners? By putting the word sinners to both of them, they are one and the same and there is no way to differentiate one to another. If the question is; Are homosexual worse than a church goers? Then the answer is, it depends!

The day of judgment is the day where God shall judge the secrets of men whether it is good or bad. It is not a judgment on what others perceived about you but a judgment as to whether you keep his commandments or not.

1 Cor 10:11 Now all these things happened to them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

Rom 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.

Rev 22:12 And behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give to every man according as his work shall be.

Eccles 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

What we see is the outside of a man not those done in secret where only God judgeth. In fact, the scripture guarantees a reward to eunuchs like homosexuals, bi-sexual, lesbians and the like, better than those who are not.

Rev 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth, he excepted, that receiveth it.

Is 56:4 For thus saith the LORD to the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;

Is 56:5 Even to them will I give in my house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.

When the transgression is not a secret to us, we should speak to warn that wicked, gay or not,  of his wickedness and iniquity. When the wicked turns from his wickedness, and does what is lawful and right, he shall live by it.  But if we warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way; he shall die in his iniquity, but we will have saved our life for doing our part as watchman of God.

Ezek 33:7 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman to the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.

Ezek 33:8 When I say to the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thy hand.

Sabbath is to cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Lev 26:15 And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul shall abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:

Lev 26:16 I also will do this to you, I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and  cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.

Lev 26:17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you, and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.

Lev 26:18 And if ye will not yet for all this hearken to me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.

Lev 26:19 And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass:

Lev 26:20 And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.

Lev 26:21 And if ye shall walk contrary to me, and will not hearken to me, I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.

Lev 26:22 I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number, and your high-ways shall be desolate.

Lev 26:23 And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary to me;

Lev 26:24 Then will I also walk contrary to you, and I will punish you yet seven times for your sins.

Gays therefore who will not reformed and walk contrary to the commandments of God then I can only say, Gays got what they deserve and being not gay is not an exemption to the rule, including YOU and ME!
