THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A lady died, went to heaven and saw Peter at the golden gates.
Peter said, "Ma'am, there's just one thing you must do in order to enter."
She asked, "What is that?"
He said, "You must SPELL the password."
She said, "Well, I certainly want to try. What is the password?"
Peter said, "Spell LOVE."
The lady answered, "Oh! That's easy: J E S U S!"
Peter said, "That's exactly right! Now look, I have some important business with our Lord. Since you are now a bona fide member, how about watching the gate for a few moments?"
She said, "Certainly. What do I do?"
Peter said, "If anyone comes up, you just get them to spell the password. If they can't spell it, a dark angel will take them; if they do spell it, a white angel will take them."
A few moments later, the lady saw her husband coming.
She said, "John, there's only one thing you must do to enter heaven."
He asked, "What is that?"
She said, "You must spell the password."
He said, "OK. I certainly want to try, what is it?"
She said, "You must spell BURZHWAH!"

And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come.
And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
The old song says, "WHOSOEVER Will, May Come!!"
And it is based on Scripture, which is God's will expressed.
Jesus said, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)
Jesus said, "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven." (Matt. 10:32)
It doesn't matter whether they are: educated or uneducated, rich or poor, socially elite or socially unacceptable, clean or dirty, red, yellow, brown, black or white!
Are you "picky" about with whom you share the Gospel?
Are you "choosy" about whom you want to join your church?
If you are, you are living in sin!
Acts 10:34-35 says, "Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him."
Prejudice has no place in God's Kingdom!
It is no small wonder we have so many churches dying for lack of increased membership!
Jesus said, "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15)
Yes, even preach it to the dog, the cat, the horse and the cow - 'cause you need the PRACTICE!
Don't exercise your prejudice over God's expressed will!
Jonah tried that, and it cost him 3 days in a whale's belly!
