The Rich Man and Lazarus

 

This month’s message is in the book of Luke Chapter 16 verses 19 thru 31. As you read the following inspired scriptures written by Luke the Physician referring to the parable “The Rich Man and Lazarus”, may we open up our hearts and have a teachable spirit to receive what the Spirit of the Word of God is saying.

 

Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus

 

Luke 16:19  There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 

Luke 16:20  And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 

Luke 16:21  And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 

 

Luke 16:22  And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into    

a Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

Revelation 3:21  To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

James 3:8  But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. 

James 3:9  Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.

Conclusion

Our choices and decisions on receiving God's Word are very important to each one of us.  We must learn to put our Faith and Trust in God and His Word the Holy Bible. Will you take this day, time and this very hour to make your choice and or decision? Will you receive God and His Word “AND BE BORN AGAIN INTO HIS KINGDOM”? Below is a prayer to receive Jesus Christ and start a relationship of eternal life with Him. 

 Prayer to Receive Jesus as Lord and Savior:

Heavenly Father,
I come to you in the Name of Jesus, I repent of my sins and I ask you to forgive me of my sins. I believe and confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God and believe He died on the cross and rose on the third day. I ask you to come into my heart. I ask you now to wash me and cleanse me. I give you my spirit, soul and body.  I will with your help follow you all the days of my life. I thank you for writing my name in the Lambs Book of life.
Thank you Father, In Jesus Name, Amen

JOY IN LIFE = SERVANT HOOD

REMEMBER THIS “JOY” = JESUS FIRST, OTHERS SECOND AND YOU "YOURSELF" LAST.

It is our prayer that this message of  “Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus” has brought hope and help to your life and that you will totally give all of your spirit, your soul and your body to Jesus Christ and be a mighty witness for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To go forth with what God has called you to do with Him.

William & Susan
