In October of 2014, we felt the Lord was calling us to build and publish a new website and blog to lift up the name of Jesus and provide Bible Based Information to help people all around the world receive salvation plus encouragement, love, hope, joy, and peace.
As we are not technicians, we spent the entire months of November and December researching how to build and publish a website. In January, we began to put all the pieces together and finally published our new website www.primelifeministries.com on the 2nd of February, 2015.
We expected some good results but what we've gotten has far exceeded our wildest expectations. Isn't that just like the Lord!
LOOK WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE!
As of today – 09/20/2022, www.primelifeministries.com has had 5,399,963 page views from people in 130 different countries including 25 Muslim Majority countries. Praise The Lord - we give God all the glory!

“Because He Lives I Can Face Tomorrow” is a beautiful gospel hymn written by Bill and Gloria Gaither in the Spring of 1970.
The 1960's was an era that was confusing and disorderly with a quantum shift in values that was deeply disturbing to Bill and Gloria. They had begun to wonder if God hadn’t given up on the world.
THE FOLLOWING ISSUES WERE REALLY BOTHERING THEM:
The educational system was being penetrated with the “God is dead” idea.
Drug use and racial tension were increasing.
The older generation felt that the country’s best days were behind them and their children (now baby boomers) agreed.
They discovered that they had a baby on the way. It was wonderful news, yet it also concerned them. Was it really a wise thing to bring a baby into such a world?
One sunny day in early spring of 1970, Gloria saw a tiny blade of grass that had pushed aside layers of dirt, rock and concrete to reach the sunshine of the world above. It had such a strong will to live; it had overcome all the odds to fulfill its destiny.
That blade of grass inspired Gloria to write a hymn expressing the hope that was shaped by the resurrection of Jesus and the birth of her son.
WORDS FROM THE HYMN
“God sent His Son, they called Him Jesus; He came to love, heal and forgive. He lived and died to buy my pardon; An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives. … How sweet to hold a newborn baby; and feel the pride and joy he gives; but greater still, the calm assurance: This child can face uncertain days because He lives. … Because He lives, I can face tomorrow. Because He lives, all fear is gone. Because I know He holds the future, And life is worth the living just because He lives!”

God Has Many Blessings For Those Who Accept His Free Gift Of Salvation.
7 MAJOR BLESSINGS
1. God Can Make You A Brand New Person.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) says “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
If you have accepted God's Free Gift Of Salvation, you are a brand new person on the inside and you are not the same anymore. You are not reformed, rehabilitated or reeducated – you are re-created (born again) living in vital union with Jesus Christ.
2. You Can Trust That God Will Always Meet Your Needs.
Philippians 4:19 (NIV) says “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.”
3. God Will Bless You With An Abundance Of Good Things.
Psalm 31:19 (NIV) says “How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you.”
4. By Jesus' Stripes, You Are Healed And Made Whole.
Isaiah 53:5 (NIV) says “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.”
1 Peter 2:24 (NIV) says “He himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.”
5. You Are Divinely Favored In Your Work And Whatever You Put Your Hands To Do.
Psalm 5:12 (NIV) says “Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.”
6. God Gives You Renewed Passion In Your Marriage And Relationships.
Genesis 2:24 (NIV) says “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.”
1 Corinthians 7:2 (NIV) says “But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.”
Note: The Bible (God's Holy Word) does not condone marriage between a man and a man or a woman and a woman. To God, this is an abomination.
7. God Gives You Wisdom And Knowledge And The Ability To Make Wise Decisions In Difficult Circumstances.
James 1:5 (NIV) says “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.”
1 Timothy 6:10 (NIV) says “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”
Note: There is nothing wrong with making money. Money itself is not evil. It's the love of money that is evil.

CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:
His name is above all names and He is worthy of all our praise.
Psalm 8:3-4 (NIV) says “When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”
Psalm 145:3 (NIV) says “Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom.”
Romans 1:20 (NIV) says “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”
Romans 8:32 (NIV) says “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

SOME REASONS FOR PRAISING THE LORD

Romans 4:8 (NIV) says “Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them.”
Romans 10:12 (NIV) says “For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him.”

LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE – WHAT IS IT?
The Lamb's Book of Life (also called The Book of Life) is a record containing the names of all those who have been spiritually reborn (redeemed). This means that they have accepted Jesus as their Savior, made Him Lord of their life, and will live with God in heaven throughout eternity.
The following Bible references speak of the Lamb's Book of Life.
Revelation 3:5 (NIV) says “The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.”
Revelation 13:8 (NIV) says “All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s Book Of Life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.”
Revelation 20:15 (NIV) says “Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.”
Revelation 21:27 (NIV) says “Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book Of Life.”
THE JUDGMENT OF THE DEAD
Revelation 20:11-15 (NIV) says “Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.”
THE LAKE OF FIRE
Revelation 20:10 (NKJV) says “The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”
The Lake Of Fire is described as a place of burning sulfur, and those in it will experience unspeakable agony of an unrelenting nature forever and ever. Everyone who rejects God's Free Gift Of Salvation (Jesus Christ) will have the Lake Of Fire as their final destination. You don't want to go there!
But those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book Of Life should have no fear of this terrible fate in the Lake Of Fire. Those who have faith in Christ and His blood shed on the cross for our sins are destined to live eternally in the presence of God.
IS YOUR NAME WRITTEN IN THE LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE?
