Deuteronomy 11:26-28....See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse-the blessing if you obey the commands of the LORD your God that I am giving you today; the curse if you disobey the commands of the LORD your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known....

Are you knocking on Heavens door with out being obedience to Gods Words??

Galatians 3:1-14

Oh, foolish Galatians! Who has cast an evil spell on you? For the meaning of Jesus Christ’s death was made as clear to you as if you had seen a picture of his death on the cross.

Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the law of Moses? Of course not! You received the Spirit because you believed the message you heard about Christ.

How foolish can you be? After starting your Christian lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort?

Have you experienced so much for nothing? Surely it was not in vain, was it?

I ask you again, does God give you the Holy Spirit and work miracles among you because you obey the law? Of course not! It is because you believe the message you heard about Christ.

In the same way,“Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.”

The real children of Abraham, then, are those who put their faith in God.

What’s more, the Scriptures looked forward to this time when God would declare the Gentiles to be righteous because of their faith. God proclaimed this good news to Abraham long ago when he said,“All nations will be blessed through you.”

So all who put their faith in Christ share the same blessing Abraham received because of his faith.

But those who depend on the law to make them right with God are under his curse, for the Scriptures say,“Cursed is everyone who does not observe and obey all the commands that are written in God’s Book of the Law.”

So it is clear that no one can be made right with God by trying to keep the law. For the Scriptures say,“It is through faith that a righteous person has life.”

This way of faith is very different from the way of law, which says,“It is through obeying the law that a person has life.”

But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures,“Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”

Through Christ Jesus, God has blessed the Gentiles with the same blessing he promised to Abraham, so that we who are believers might receive the promised Holy Spirit through faith.

Romans 6:1-18

Well then, should we keep on sinning so that God can show us more and more of his wonderful grace?

Of course not! Since we have died to sin, how can we continue to live in it?

Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death?

For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.

Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was.
We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin.

For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin.And since we died with Christ, we know we will also live with him.

We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and he will never die again.
Death no longer has any power over him. When he died, he died once to break the power of sin. But now that he lives, he lives for the glory of God.

So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.

Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires.

Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin.

Instead, give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life.

So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God.

Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace.

Well then, since God’s grace has set us free from the law, does that mean we can go on sinning?

Of course not! Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey?

You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living.

Thank God! Once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you.

Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.

The Bible says that when JESUS was baptized at the Jordan River, "The HEAVENS were opened unto HIM, and HE saw the SPIRIT of GOD DESCENDING like a DOVE and lighting upon HIM; and to a VOICE from HEAVEN, saying, This is MY BELOVED SON, In whom I am well pleased" (Matthew 3:16-17)

It's been a difficult week marked by terror in Boston, a devastating explosion in Texas, flooding in the Midwest, and rockets landing in the southern Israeli city of Eilat. In time like these, it's comforting to know that we can turn to our all-powerful God, Who is bigger than anything we might face in our broken world, and that He will freely offer us His mighty arm of protection and unconditional love....

In this country we reap what we sow, or you can say we made our own bed and now we got to sleep in it. When we close the door on God and go our own way. Then we leave that door to our own life open, and Satan come in that door to kill steal and to destroy! How many people will die in this country before we can wake up, God have turn His back on this country because of Sin. We need to turn our lives back to God and let God tack total control over this country. Look around you can see what kind of job man is doing to this country. And the only thing people can do is set on there chairs and talk about it, we need to do something and now before its to late FACT. The Pastor's/Preacher's is trying to tell this country what we need to do but Satan have got them blind to the truth and there ears is close to the truth FACT!!

If you are suggesting that your god condoned and allowed the atrocity that happened at the Boston Marathon because not enough people in this country worship him you are no better than the two fanatics that committed that atrocity.
