If you read God’s Word daily, He is teaching you all you need to live the Christian life, to be his witness, in Judea, Jerusalem, Samaria and to the ends of the earth. Here are some questions to ponder:  How long have you been a follower of Jesus Christ? Are you a witness for Jesus? How much many more Bible studies classes, or books on “how to live the Christian life do you need to read?

As you read the Bible, as you are daily studying the Bible, God’s Spirit is teaching you God’s word. Now you need to go and take God at His word.   Most Christians have learned enough, and probably know more of God’s teachings, principles, and have more copies of God’s word than the first century Church. When will God’s church start being the “Going Church” Jesus commanded us to be? (Matthew 28:19-20)

Saul of Tarsus, a rabbi, and a member of Israel’s Sanhedrin Council, when on Damascus Road, had an encounter with Jesus Christ and was saved. Paul asked, “What do You want me to do?” Jesus told Saul, later called apostle Paul, that he would take the gospel to the world. (Acts 9:6) Jesus responded, “Arise and go into the city and you will be told what to do.” (Acts 9:6)

Jesus has instructed, us the church to go and make disciples. I asked the church in a sermon on Sunday, “What is the mission of the Church?” I shared, Our mission is the Great Commission according to Jesus’ words, command, and mandate. Our mission is twofold. First, Jesus has instructed us to “Go.” This can be understood as intentional evangelism, as intentional proclamation, and intentionally making Jesus known to the world. Second, we are to teach, new believers Jesus teachings, Jesus is the Logos, God’s Word.

Evangelism is basically, part of the disciple-making process. Lost people do not know they are in a Bible study group when you are sharing biblical truths with them. We evangelize, God’s word penetrates to their very soul, and the Spirit works in their heart, bringing change, with the purpose of transformation by salvation and a new person inside and out.

The day after I was saved I went to work, never having taken a soul winning course and I began to share what God had done in my life. I had placed my faith in Jesus. A dear friend led me in a sinner’ prayer. I thanked Jesus for dying on the cross for me. I asked Jesus into my heart and acknowledged Jesus as Lord and Savior. No one told me to go and begin telling others how God had changed my life. I was so overjoyed that I could not contain the joy of it all.

So, let go, and let God use you. Let’s go and turn this world upside down in Jesus name. (Acts 17:6)

When I stop and consider what is happening to the American culture and around the world, I feel like I am watching a horror-SyFy movie. The main plot is a crazed tyrant or crazed cult leader, who tells the people in a small town or society that things are not what they seem to be.

They are told that the genetic and physical gender, in which they were born, is not who they are psychologically and physically. Humans are being told to dress as the opposite gender and to act like the opposite gender, as a contradiction to what they were created by God. Others are misled and talked into mutilating their bodies and led like sheep to a slaughter. We have seen adults, then teens and now plans by the sick minds, to alter the minds and mutilate the body and gender of young children to create a distorted humanity.

What we have is the greatest mockery of God’s creation by the devil, who hates God. He hates everything God has created. He hates God’s plans for humanity and he wants to go against every aspect of God’s plan. He wants to distort, mutilate, confuse humans in every way possible.

What has been described above, if it were not really happening, you would think and say, “The individual who would conjure up, plot, scheme and construct such a destructive plan has to be mentally sick, sadistic, a serial murderer, manipulative, a psychopath. No one in their right mind would tell another individual that their genetic and physical gender is incorrect and they must dress as the opposite gender and then consider mutilation to change their physical gender.

From my research, this is similar to what the Nazi’s did to the Jewish prisoners, in the concentration and death camps, in the name of scientific research. Cutting off and cutting out body parts and reassembly of body parts as an experiment on human lives.

Shouldn’t this be labeled as a modern day version “Frankensteinism!” Isn’t this what we would expect to happen in a horror film and plot? What we see happening in our culture and around the world, is nothing more than the Devil’s plan to deconstruct God’s plan for humanity, family, and marriage, of one genetic and physical man and one genetic and physical woman.

The Devil has been at work since the creation of Adam and Eve, working feverishly to deceive, distort and as yes mutilate God’s creation, first psychologically and then physically. The source of humanity’s problem is at the heart, which includes the mind and soul. If an individual’s mind is restored by God’s Spirit at the moment of salvation, the change of the physical outward appearance will follow. “17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

So as the Church considers all that is happening, the Church has a new ministry at its doorstep. The question is “How to minister to those who fell for the devil’s lies and now are coming to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ?” These individuals will realize that they were lied to and some have mutilated their bodies. The Church must develop plans to make disciples of these new individuals in Christ, who are born again and become a new person in Christ.

The apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 2:16, “For who has known the mind of THE LORD JEHOVAH that he may teach him? But we do have the mind of The Messiah. Aramaic Bible in Plain English

He quotes Isaiah 40:13 and then makes a statement concerning all believers: “We have the mind of Christ.” Having the mind of Christ means sharing the plan, purpose, and perspective of Christ, and it is something that all believers possess.

Having the mind of Christ means we understand God’s plan for humanity and in the world. God’s creation brings glory to Himself. He reveals Himself as a loving, caring, merciful and restoring God. Through Jesus Christ, His desire is to restore creation to its original magnificence and provide salvation for sinners.

Jesus mandate still stands, He has not changed His mind, we are commanded to Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit,20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20.

Recently, Dr. Billy Graham’s Daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, the Evangelist, was quoted on the state of American landscape and purposed the question, “Is God Turning Away From America And Leaving Us To Our Sins,” reported by Michael W. Chapman | April 26, 2016 on CNSNews.com- http://cnsnews.com/blog/michael-w-chapman/billy-grahams-daughter-god-turning-away-america-and-leaving-us-our-sins-0#.VyBDuJn8UVU.facebook

If you read the Old Testament, the first part of the Christian Bible, you will read time and time again, God punished His chosen people for their gross rebellions. In the Old Testament, God’s people, the Israelite’s, murdered/sacrificed their babies at the altars of Molech, aka, the Devil. see Jewish encyclopedia site for more information on Molech.

http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/10937-moloch-molech.

Today, in America, we murder our babies, by the hundreds of thousands, every year, at the altars of Planned Parenthood’s, (the abortion clinics). These innocent unborn babies are murdered, while still in was intended to be a “SAFE PLACE” for protection, nurture, and growth. Instead the “SAFE PLACE”, has become a chamber of death, of violent, horrific mutilation of precious unborn babies.

They are basically nothing more than sacrifices offered to the same devil, the god Molech. America and even some churches have gone after false teachings, after corrupted teachings, and have denied the One True God and rebelled and become just like the world.

So do we expect the Creator of the universe, of all living and nonliving matter, to respond differently? Can we sin so much that God would say, “ENOUGH WITH THE SINNING!” In the Old and New Testament, we see recorded accounts, giving evidence that God had to allow His people to wallow in their sin and suffer the consequences.

Genesis, 7 gives evidence that God had enough of humans rebelling and sinning. So He saved the few righteous people, Noah and his family, who followed and obeyed God. Then God flooded the earth, killing all human life and animals, and gave humanity and earth a second chance.

Exodus 32 gives another clear example of God’s people rebelling and sinning, after He set them free from 400 years of bondage and gross slavery under Egyptian rule. While God is giving Mosses the Ten Commandments on two tablets, the people made a false god, a golden calf. God killed all those who participated in the worship of the calf and did not repent, “And the Lord struck the people with a plague because of what they did with the calf Aaron had made.” Exodus 32:35

In Romans 1, the apostle Paul, who had been a Jesus hater, and he hated everyone who followed or professed Jesus as God’s Holy One, later becomes a Christ follower. He wrote to the church in Rome, that if we keeping on sinning and rebelling and reject God, He will turn us over to sinful ways.

Romans 1:18 states, For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all the evils and the wickedness of the children of men, those who are holding the truth in evil.” (Aramaic Bible in Plain English).

People have chosen to worship the creation today over the Creator as mentioned by the apostle Paul in Romans 1: 22-23. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.”

So what will happen if we have gone to the extreme of sinning so what we can cause God to say “Enough with your sinning and rebelling!”

Romans 1 say, 24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy.

If you have never asked Jesus Christ to forgive your sin and asked Him to become your Lord and Savior, do it today. Say, Dear Jesus, I believe you died for my sin, on the cross, and where buried. You rose from the grave to conquer sin, death, and the devil. You have the keys to death and life. Right now, I ask you forgive all my sins. Come into my life and heart. I give my life to You Jesus. Thank You for giving me a new life and for saving my soul. In Jesus Name.

If you prayed and asked Jesus to forgive your sins and asked Him to become your Lord and Savior, Congratulations! Welcome to the family of God.

Did you realize that every born again, Christian is a “TRANS” individual? So why are we hated and despised? We were “TRANS” when it wasn’t cool. Christians have been persecuted since the beginning, because they said they were “TRANS.” They were hunted down, beheaded, and “sawed in two.” because they were “TRANS.” And many are to this day around the world.

We don’t make people like us, as “TRANS” individuals. We invite others, we invite you to consider the reason, the Person, why we have chosen to follow this Person who makes us “TRANS.” Who is this Person, who makes us “TRANS?” Why it is Jesus Christ! The Creator, the Savior and Lord of all fallen humanity.

Oh. I didn’t finish. we are TRANS -FORMED by the power of gospel of Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:17, John 3:3,5-6,

Jesus will TRANS-FORM/change you on the inside. He will make you a new creation. You will feel new on the inside. And those who know you, will say, “You look different and act different. You are not the same person you used to be!”

Jesus will give you a new heart and mind.

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2

“and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind,” Ephesians 4:23

“Whosoever calls on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, shall be saved,” (TRANSFORMED) Romans 10:13
