Art Katz states that we have not only missed the cross in today’s culture, we have also missed the power of the resurrection. As a result, we are living fleshly, sensual, and devilish lives rather than the triumphant-victorious life we have in Christ. This message is an appeal to turn back to Jesus as He actually is. http://ellerslie.com
What would it look like for the Church to fight on the offensive, instead of the defensive? We often have a passive stance in bringing the Gospel to the world but effective evangelism happens when we use wisdom and creativity. Just as the Salvation Army brought the Gospel to the East End of London with an unexpected (and very effective!) tactic, this message inspires us to ask God for how we can proactively approach our generation. We all have been placed in this generation by God and are being built for such a time as this. Look out world! Delivered by: Eric Ludy
This is about people who have died and the effects it has on people. These people lived in an apartment complex. When they saw a dead person which is a reality. That some day you will die and be in a body bag. The effect it will have. Did you know Moses thought about his death? Jesus thought about his death. It’s wise for us to number are days. There was one guy who had cancer with a 10% chance to live. he tried a ginnie pig treatment, but he lived. He asked if he was scared. he said he thinks often about his death. More people need to think they will die one day. This will give you wisdom about death and life. When we realize we only have one life to live. Then we need the difficult thoughts to have the right Perspective of life and meaning in life from temporary to eternal. Death is a sobering wake-up call in light of this life we have. There is hope even through all of this because death will smile upon you. are you ready?.
This is a study in the forceful and terrorizing grip that unmitigated self-appetite can have on both an individual life and the life of a society. To be American used to carry with it (whether it was deserving or not) the Puritan ideals of integrity, chastity, prudence, temperance, goodwill, generosity, and mercy. But times have certainly changed. Now, it appears that around the world today, the “American” is often known instead for their bizarre sense of entitlement and their strange brand of religion (oft misunderstood to be Christianity) that gives them a so-called “liberty” to live in a constant state of excess and self-seeking pleasure. And thusly, the once noble and honorable word “American,” has become a synonym for “Glutton.” Oh, for the Church of Jesus Christ to come out from among this and be separate.
Why would someone who does not believe in GOD or THE GOSPEL be watching this video??? Something inside your heart tells you that you are in need of such a loving God. In need of an Intercessor for your sins….. ONE DAY YOU ALL WHO DO NOT BELIEVE WILL KNOW HOW GOO IT FEELS TO SAY WITH A LOUD VOICE THANK YOU JESUS MY LORD FOR RESCUING ME!!!!. Ask yourself the tough question, what moves you in this life?, You choose. Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Do you really trust him and are you willing to lay your life on the line and prove God faithful or are you to busy. There are lost are you saying God send me! or are you going to let someone else get the job description God designed for you? Maybe you say I’ll only follow God so far, anything beyond this point is extreme. Don’t you realize he purchased your body and you belong to Jesus Christ? Don’t define the terms of how he uses you. Are you willing to go if he asks without the comforts of life for Jesus Christ your King? Are you willing do suffer and die for Christ if he calls you. Put your life for him to be willing to let go. Jesus was described as a worm and no man you don’t need to be noticed. Go do his work. James 5:3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.
The Gospel – http://www.ellerslie.com – May we be unashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16) Please note that this is a metaphorical take on the Gospel. It presumes a knowledge of the historic framework of the Cross, Burial, Resurrection, and Ascension of Jesus Christ. Though certain elements of the Cross-work are not fully explained herein (i.e. – Jesus’s fulfillment of all righteousness, His perfect match with all the Old Testament Messianic prophecy, and His bearing of the outpoured wrath of God in our stead), we in no way wish to diminish their significance and importance in the Gospel landscape.

Eric Ludy – The Gospel (by setapartlife)
“We say thank you god for being a father to the fatherless. But he says remember you call yourself my body, I’m not there except through you, your hands are my hands, your feet are my feet, that heart is my heart. I work through my body, I’m a father to the fatherless through my body”. God is looking for more than the money of the saints. He’s looking for the entirety of their lives to be spent for the weak. Psalm 41:1 Blessed are those who have regard for the weak; the Lord delivers them in times of trouble.
It has taken Eric Ludy four years of spiritual wrestling before he was ready to deliver this super-charged message. After all, within a modern Christian system that has been greatly undermined by the “Health, Wealth, and Prosperity Gospel,” no one in the “Biblically Conservative” camp really wants to touch this issue which lies right smack in the middle of the “Charismatic” and “Faith Movement” controversy. It’s high-time that the Church of Jesus Christ gain a Biblical and sound answer to this important issue of healing without blindly throwing the blanket answer of “cessation” over it. Was healing merely an outward seal upon the ministry of the Messiah and His apostles, or is it something that is intended by God to be included in our understanding of the Atonement? The answer to that question has far-reaching ramifications.
Fear controls the modern American Christian. And for most in the post-modern Church, this is non-chalantly accepted without a fight. But, the Biblical declaration of the healthy Christian soul does not allow for even a scrap of self-preserving fear, fretting, anxiety, and foreboding. It’s simply not intended to be a part of the Christian life. So, how do we deal with this great discrepancy? And how do we start living the lives of fearless faith that God intended us to be living?
