AMERICA, JUDGMENT HAS COME UPON A SOCIETY WHICH KILLS THE INNOCENT

The first chapter of ROMANS in the Bible defines the America in which we now live today. GOD’s judgment of abandonment is the reason evil is celebrated while good is condemned. Why godless evil people who have rejected the sovereign rule of GOD are then unrestrained to commit heinous atrocities against others and unimagined wickedness such as the senseless killing of helpless children. When there is no fear of GOD there is no concern of the consequence of the acts committed which are an offense to GOD.

The recent shooting of innocent children and of defenseless adults in Connecticut has been answered with a public outcry of astonishment and of anger, but this act of barbarism should be no surprise to us. Ours is a culture which has embraced immorality and death! The American people, by the leading and encouragement of our government officials, has legislated in favor of and encourages the murders of 1,000,000 unborn children in the wombs of their mothers every year for the inconvenience the child would be to so many. Safe in the womb or in the arms of a parent, a child is a human being deserving of protection and of the privilege of life. Who are we to determine who is to live or to die? GOD alone is the Creator who provides the breath which brings life or ends in death.
This double standard of being angry at the murder of innocent children while complacent concerning the murder of the unborn is evidence of the total depravity of the human heart. The one place where a child should be the most protected has become the most exploited and politicized killing ground the world has ever known. Billions of dollars for profit at the expense of the loss of human life. The arrogant conceit of wicked heartless people is astounding nor will this behavior continue unanswered!
GOD is sovereign in the affairs of all of humanity, and no unjust act will go unpunished. Each of us will stand before the one true and Holy GOD one day to answer for the life we have lived based upon the choices we have made. The good we have done for others or the wrongs we chose to not address for fear of offending the offensive. As we blindly live for the pleasures of our own self-fulfillment we forget that one day JUSTICE will be served!

GOD became man in the person Jesus Christ to be the atonement for the sins of all of humanity. For those who will believe and trust Christ, salvation and reconciliation with GOD. Being adopted as sons and daughters these whom GOD has declared righteous will throughout all of eternity live joyously and peacefully in the presence of the GOD of all of creation learning the majestic wonders of the unfathomable GOD Jesus Christ.
For those who will not believe, eternal damnation in the fires of HELL is their just punishment for rejecting the atoning sacrifice which God Himself became. The Holy undeserving LORD of all took upon Himself what only GOD could bear so that we could be saved. The arrogant reject Christ and in HELL, they will have acknowledged that Christ is both LORD and GOD but have no hope of salvation nor escape from the eternal torment of GOD’s Holy and Just punishment.

This is no laughing matter or something which we can debate. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only truth that is of the utmost importance to consider. GOD is not confused! There is only the one true GOD Jesus Christ whose self-existent revelation was given to us throughout the pages of the Bible. All other gods are false religious ideals which are made up by man so that man could live in sin uncondemned. But in the end…..we will all be rightly judged. GOD commands that we believe Christ and repent of our sin. Today is the day of salvation. Believe and you will be saved. We have no promise of life tomorrow but the Holy Scriptures do guarantee that all will give an account of themselves to GOD. Only the fool says there is no GOD. Do not make this mistake!

NO ONE REALLY LIVES UNTIL CHRIST IS FORMED WITHIN

Have any of you who claim to be Christ’s followers ever stopped from all the business of “YOUR” life to seriously consider what is the true meaning of the Gospel? According to the majority of those who are pastors of all the different denominational and independent churches in America and many others around the world, GOD wants everyone to be loving towards and inclusive of all faiths and lifestyles, healthy in body and mind, are financially sovereign, and are the envy of the communities in which they live, believing that this is evidence of true Christian expression. A gospel which is built upon the needs, the wants, and the hopes of people.

Contrary to this belief, the Bible is a testament of GOD from GOD, and is given to us for the purpose of revealing the deity of Christ in creation and through the salvation of those who believe. When studied carefully, the Bible tells a very different story than that which is believed by most people who profess to be either Christian or Catholic, or of the many religious beliefs which are similar too and are wrongly thought to be Christian. True Christians the world over suffer incredible hardships and persecution, imprisonment and are often murdered for their public proclamation of faith in Christ by Islamists, Hindus and the observers of many different world religions, while especially in America today we arrogantly live far above our needs and are adamantly opposed to submitting to that which is taught in Scripture as the biblical expression of Christian faith.
Our life is not our own! We who have come to realize the vile sins we have committed against the Holy GOD, and that we desperately need salvation and have believed and accepted Christ’s atonement for our sins are now obligated to be a witness to those who have yet to learn this truth. This calling is not meant to be contained within the safe-zone of the buildings where we gather as is purported by those opposed to the proclamation of the biblical Gospel. Yes, here is where Christian disciples are to be taught by those whom GOD has ordained to give instruction to how we are to rightly understand what the Scriptures teach about GOD, and of how this knowledge then forms our world-view and thus defines the Christian life that we live among world-societies. If not us, then who? This is the evidence of the Gospel’s message which people first see in our character and is evident by the conduct of our lives.

In the time in which we now live people do not want to be told that they sin against GOD and that they must repent and turn away from the sinful life that they love, and trust Christ for their salvation. People are either adamantly hostile towards those who would even dare to offend their emotions, or they want only to be told that GOD is love, and that they are free to live any lifestyle they choose as long as they love GOD and are kind and accepting of everyone they know.
I believe that this is the greatest injustice a Christian can commit against another person. Unless we are willing to confront the societies in which we find ourselves we are not a living testament to the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and therefore we have sinned against GOD. As Christian disciples, we must boldly confront people with the truths of the Gospel and then pray that GOD will bring to life in these people the seed of regeneration that has within itself the power to transform the life of those who will believe. This is uncomfortable and it can be intimidating especially considering the hostility which many people express towards the true Bible believing Christians of today. They hated Christ. Do not think it strange that they will hate us also.

Ours is an impossible life apart from the undeserved favor of GOD whose Spirit indwells the recreated spirit and the renewed mind of the person who dares to believe. We are commanded by GOD to repent and to believe Christ, and to tell others that they must do the same. Only then does GOD willingly give to us the hope of assurance in knowing that in Christ we are declared righteous and that we are saved from the wrath of GOD which will one day come upon all who did not believe. Theirs is a lifetime of hopeless questions of which only the Christian disciple has the answers for. We are the salt of the earth. Let us act like it!

I HEARD THE SPIRIT OF GOD SAY

Filed under: Writing — William D. Simpson @ 1:58 PM
Tags: , , , , , ,

It was during one of the darkest times in my life when I had become so disgusted with the life I was living, that I separated myself from everything I was familiar with. For a year and a half, all I did was study the Bible to try to find meaning in all the bad I had experienced. At times I would weep when reading about what Christ had done for me, and my meditation was would GOD somehow make this unbelievable hope to become reality to someone as undeserving as me. Then one night early in the morning, as I wept while worshiping GOD in prayer and in the study of GOD’s Word, I heard the Spirit of GOD say:

“I Am the LORD your GOD. I have brought you out of bondage. You will have no other god before Me. You will put nothing before your worship of Me. I Am the LORD your GOD, and I Am a jealous GOD over you. I will love you all of your life. Love Me and live for Me.”

GOD’s presence was so tangible that I fell to my knees in awe and in fear that GOD would consider me. The presence of GOD is something to behold, but, the presence of GOD is not something with which we can be so crass about.
I do not think myself privileged for the encounters I have had with GOD in my lifetime, but I do believe that GOD revealed Himself to me in this way to solidify my confidence in the hope which I now proclaim. I cannot be silent nor will I be concerned with the complaints of those who are offended when I preach Christ crucified, and that salvation is through Christ alone.

GOD reached down into utter darkness to reveal truth to me. I therefore can do nothing other than give my life to the study of GOD’s truth, and to trust that GOD will graciously allow the unsaved to see Christ through me. This is the out-working of the impossible attainment of the regeneration of a dead spirit and, of a mind being renewed to the hope of GOD accepting Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross of Calvary as my atonement.

Simply defined: When GOD looks at the cross He sees me, and when GOD looks at me, He sees Christ. How can a lost humanity not give their life to GOD? This is the indictment I will continue to confront society with. Who do you think you are, fool! To reject Christ is to spit in GOD’s face. This is not something I recommend you do…

OURS IS THE HOPE WHICH IS GRANTED

Filed under: Writing — William D. Simpson @ 10:36 AM

The hope we have is the knowledge of what God did through the atoning sacrifice of the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus, God in human form. Whose life, death and resurrection, was witnessed by those who were privileged to have been granted the understanding to know that He was the Christ. Who also recorded the historical writings we know as the Gospels in the New Testament Bible, which detail the public ministry and the acts of a man who did things that only God could do. God came to dwell among His creation, and the majority of those people did not recognize Him. Then in fulfillment of the promise which the ancient Scriptures foretold, the only person to have ever lived a perfect sinless life paid the ultimate price so that you and I would not have to.
Beaten and stripped naked, bleeding and humiliated, Jesus was crucified on Calvary’s cross to suffer the punishment of separation from the presence of God. There God’s wrath was poured out upon Jesus. He became sin, sickness and dis-ease and all of the depravity within each of us. By taking in His body the penalty we are deserving of, Jesus became the atonement for your and my sin. Jesus willingly sacrificed His deity to redeem a lost humanity, to once again enjoy unbroken fellowship with those whom He calls to give their lives for Him. And when the purpose of His death was fulfilled, Jesus raised Himself from the dead to be a living witness to the testament of His deity.

By this, Jesus proved to be the only true and living God! There is no other name or false religion known to mankind that can save, transform and make us righteous before God other than Jesus Christ.
There are grave consequences if you do not take the time to understand what it really means to be Christian. For if you live your life in a way that you enjoy the temporary pleasures of this world then one day as your body lays down in death with no atonement for your sins, there will be a reality you do not want to face!

Seek Christ now to be found by Him, and this priveledged hope will also be granted to you…

And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I command you; and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age. Matthew 28:18-20

THE WORLD IS BETTER BECAUSE OF CHRIST

I’m amused with the arrogance of educated people who think that they are wise, but are actually imbecile. Those who exercise all of their cognitive reasoning in the attempt to rationalize away the undeniable truth of creations God and with it, the thought of having to give an answer to the moral law-giver for the life one has lived. The recent debate between David Wolpe and Dinesh D’Souza, and A.C. Grayling and Matthew Chapman “The World Would Be Better Off Without Religion” was the epitome of intelligent ignorance.

http://fora.tv/2011/11/15/Debate_The_World_Would_Be_Better_Off_Without_Religion

In his book, the recently deceased author Christopher Hitches wrote about “God Is Not Great, How Religion Poisons Everything.” His world-view, much like the world-view of both Grayling and Chapman and most every person alive today both religious and non, focuses on the wrongs that imperfect people do, as was addressed by David Wolpe in his opening statement. What they intentionally avoid bringing attention too is the person whose life has been fundamentally transformed by the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Who is then used by GOD to bring about radical change in the lives of other people and, has led the way to many of the greatest humanitarian advancements in world history. I would like to suggest that God is good, and that good apart from God is in reality the arrogant expression of irrational justification of a person’s perceived self-worth. Pride is the sin which God hates most!

Read a book the will challenge the self-proclaimed atheist and the adherent of every world-religion that has ever been observed, in their attempt to explain away the evidence of the Christian religion being the only true expression of worshipping creations God. Their religion is in the rejection of, or is centered upon mans attempt to dethrone God by bringing God down to man’s attainment. Whereas Christianity is God’s own handiwork in the salvation of the person who in humility accepts the scandalous representation of the Gospel as God’s only will and testament of His separateness to humanity. No one apart from Jesus Christ has, nor ever will, be accepted by the Holy, Holy, Holy God.

So in summary, the real lesson to be learned here is to never give to a fool the microphone. The blind person cannot lead other blind people out of spiritual darkness. But in this age of tolerance where we now find ourselves, Christian apologists such as Mr. D’Souza are required to give equal time to the fool who has nothing to say worth hearing. I long for the day when the Christian man who is confident in the knowledge of the doctrine of Christ’s substitution, stands face to face with the educated imbecile as Elijah did to the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel, to make a mockery of them. Elijah had no respect for their unbelief, neither do I. The world longs for the sons of God to be revealed, whose lives and preaching and ministry of caring for the people in the communities where they live, proves to that society that “The World Is Better Because Of Christ.”

OUR WORLD DESPERATELY NEEDS THE TOUCH OF ITS CREATOR

TRUTH IS WINSOME

Author William D. Simpson’s Personal Testimony To The Life Transforming Power Of The Gospel Of Jesus Christ.

There are no words to adequately express the appreciation I owe to GOD but in the way that I know best, I will attempt to describe the awe-inspiring depth of GOD’s love which captured me.

This is why I am a Christian, and is the reason I could never be silent…

I was a child of rape,
Fatherless,
Unloved by a mother, not wanted, neglected, beaten, burned and abandoned,
Fostered and then adopted by those who did not cherish nor protect,
Molested, raped, shamed,
Innocence lost,
Told was a mistake, no good, would never amount to anything,
Cursed, kicked, slapped, whipped, beaten,
Learned by example that alcohol and drugs would numb the pain,
Runaway,
Bullied, beat up, drug overdose and left for dead,
Hospitalized, juvenile incarceration, and told again that I would never amount to anything,
Hopeless, angry, alone,
Sentenced to juvenile life in prison,
Attempted rapes, countless fights, stabbed repeatedly, and in isolation hatred consumed,
Released from prison, unwelcome, homeless, hungry,
Never begged but ate out of dumpsters and occasionally worked for food or cash,
My youth and seemingly helpless condition was the lust of another’s deviant sexual behavior, who were played, beaten and robbed,
Alcohol warmed on cold nights,
Lonely women in bars were nothing more than a bed to sleep in,
Uncaring, indifferent, selfish, self-loathsome,
Attempted suicide, and angry that even death evaded me,
Married and was soon divorced,
Immersed in the bartend culture,
Became a stripper, an escort, drug dealer, a player,
For the twenty years following my release from prison I woke up in the morning to get high and laid down drunk every night,
Never saw in any other what I had always hoped could be real,
Dead is spirit, mean, calloused, vile and vulgar defines the man I had become. Then the unexpected happened…

GOD graciously and undeservedly reached down into utter blackness to reveal the truth of Christ’s redeeming work on the cross of Calvary to save as vile a man as me. So real was GOD’s presence as tears of joy washed away a lifetime of anger and pain. Gone was the guilt of my sin against GOD when reading that by accepting Jesus as my Savior and my LORD, GOD had declared me righteous. Nothing in my past had power to enslave me anymore. It was then that I realized why GOD chose me. I know hurt. I know pain. I know intimately the hopelessness felt by all people today. But most importantly, I know that GOD can save.
What I did, I no longer do. I’m not without fault, but the sins I used to love I now hate. When I am wrong I am easily hurt in knowing that GOD’s Spirit within me is grieved, and I’m quick to ask for forgiveness. And true to the written Word, GOD has taken from me the heart hardened by sin, and has birthed in me a sincere concern for the needs people have and, of the urgency for their eternal salvation. In Christ, GOD gave to humanity His all in that GOD died in our behalf that we would be given the privilege to truly live. Salvation is a free gift, but the soul’s transformation will cost the Christian disciple everything. As I am becoming a very different person, this is a testimony to the life-transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Now three years drug free,
In love with and happily married to the woman GOD chose to love me,
A helper to those who cannot help themselves,
Joined a truly Christian church,
Grew to believe that I can,
And of all things, I wrote a book about it all…

Once in awhile, someone comes along with a bold message, completely transforming the way that we view the world around us. Celebrity authors, academians and media personalities have long dominated the attention of the masses. But in this particular instance that someone is not famous, but is a person who has seen the world through a different set of eyes than most people.

GOD is real, and the book which I have written is a testament to the authenticity of the GOD of the Bible. The sole intent throughout the message of my book is to provoke deep thought by challenging the defense of one’s reason. “Why do I think like and continually do the things that I do?” For far too long we have been deceived by those who have manipulated the truths about GOD, and of how this vital world-view has influenced the societies in which we now live. Hurt people,hurt other people.
In an age given over wholly to relativism, it is my challenge for anyone to read the book which I have written and then attempt to rationally debate their disbelief of GOD, or, the belief that GOD is anything other than what has been revealed through the pages of Holy Scripture.

Of all the world religions and religious ideals, is it too difficult to believe that GOD is capable of revealing the truth of who GOD really is, and, what humanity must do to be accepted by GOD. I think not! No one can rationally defend their disbelief of GOD. For reason and conscience affirms the reality of GOD, and is why humanity hates this truth. They would rather love darkness…

Throughout history people have always insisted that the Christian give proof of GOD. I will say that Christ’s disciples have done just this by the evidence of a life forever changed. Will you give GOD the opportunity to prove to you the reality of His seperateness. GOD is so good. Our world desperately needs the touch of its CREATOR…

It is my prayer that your saving-faith will come to life while reading the personal testimony of a man who was broken by GOD to learn what it really means to love.

After nearly two years in print and very little media coverage as the result of a publisher being either prejudice of or intimidated by its message, I am offering my book for free to download in digital format. It’s never been about the money I could have made, but the possibility of my life’s testimony helping someone else to acknowledge the truth about salvation through Jesus Christ and Christ alone. I sincerely hope that you will read this book and recommend it to the people you know.

LEST WE FORGET THE TRUE MEANING OF CHRISTMAS

The True Meaning of Christmas

Societies the world over celebrate the holiday of christmas with very little thought as to the true meaning of christmas. Families and friends gather together during this time to celebrate, to eat, to give and to receive gifts and, to party. While being trivial about and even assaulting the only truth that is eternally important.

Lest we forget, it is important that Christians take full advantage of the medias hype and of the focus given to commerce, to remind people that GOD became the man Christ Jesus to become the atonement for men.

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.”
Isaiah 9:6-7

This child is the beginning of creation, the end of creation, the upholder of creation and, the goal of creation. To redeem the elect of GOD!

To slight the Child of Christmas is to blaspheme the GOD of Heaven

CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS NOW BELIEVES IN GOD

Filed under: Writing — William D. Simpson @ 1:19 PM

GOD IS…

God is separate. God is holy. God is right. God is love. God is forgiving. God is just.

God is everything we are not for we are evil, wicked, vile creatures who hate the idea that God has given the law that we are to abide by. The love of God that all people refer to, and is grossly misunderstood, is displayed in the atonement that God made for humanity by killing Himself in the person of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary who willingly took upon Himself the furry of God’s holy anger against the fallen creation God loves. Only Christ could be this substitute!
The anger at those who tell people that they will be judged by God for rejecting Christ’s offer of salvation is too rejecting God. No one can know God apart from Christ. No one can come to believe in Christ apart from God drawing this person and revealing this precious gift. And the only possible way that a person can know about God is by the preaching of God’s Gospel.

We are GOD’s creation and we will all stand before God one day to answer for the life we have lived. Noted author and debater Christopher Hitchens died yesterday. He lived apart from God and only God knows his end. But Scripture is clear that if a person dies without having accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and as LORD, they are then of themselves subject to the wrath of God’s holy anger in the depths of an eternal HELL. Don’t be the fool who lives as if there is no God. Your world-view is grossly wrong.

GOD IS. EVIDENCE GIVEN!

Filed under: Writing — William D. Simpson @ 11:59 AM

Amidst the many differing ideals regarding the existence of God and the influence this has had upon world societies, there is great need for dialogue to confront and to challenge world-views with evidence that cannot be denied.

A witness is someone who can give testimony to an event/s that occurred with conviction to persuade. William Simpson has written a thought-provoking commentary that proves the reality of creations God, and, what one must act upon to be known by and to be accepted by God.
Of all the writings throughout world history, there is only one book which presents God as only God could truly be. LIVING IN THE HOPE OF MY IMAGINATION is the written testimony of a man who unapologetically challenges anyone to read and still deny the reality of the GOD of the Bible. The evidence has been given.

Book is available in stores and Amazon.

SHAME CAST AWAY IN A RIVER OF GRACE

“Jesus, lover of my soul; you give me strength to overcome where
you lead for the experience of knowing it’s in you I depend. The
foundation upon which I have established my faith is in the acceptance
of your sacrifice; I am a man now redeemed. You became salvation and
took upon you my sin to suffer and die that I might live again. In you
do I trust; your Words have I hid in my heart. Oh, the joy of knowing I
am your friend. Washed and made clean by the blood of the Lamb, you
are my hope everlasting in this peace I have found. Shame cast away in
a river of grace; confident, I stand upright in your presence, my King.
Free from the bondage and slavery to sin, being healed in my body,
mind renewed and made whole. Innocence once lost has now been
restored; you are my God, my Savior, my Lord.”
