The 10 must do list on keto. Maximize your results!!

Over the years I have done much research on the keto diet on how to improve my keto lifestyle over the years.

I want to make you a list to either improve your keto lifestyle whether you are already on keto or things to keep in mind if you are just starting out.

Keto has been wonderful for me. I have lost about 26 pounds, I have less back pain, more energy and just feel overall better.

I am going to be real a say that is has not always been easy. Even though my cravings have subsided by about 90%, it is when we are emotional that the 10% creeps up. After a fight, or making up after a fight (you know what I mean), after a bad day at work.

I would honestly say that if keto was making my life miserable I would not have stuck with it for over two years.

I love food, all kinds of foods including carbohydrates. Like the feeling it gives me when I do decide to eat some.

The 10 must do on keto to maximize your results.

  1. Don’t eat keto friendly sweets every day.
  2. Educate yourself on ingredients.
  3. Eat more sodium.
  4. Don’t eat keto friendly sweets every day.
  5. Focus on omega 3 fat vs omega 6 fats.
  6. Don’t be afraid of saturated fats.
  7. Eat more protein.
  8. Stop snacking.
  9. Be prepared.
  10. Cheat!

1. Daily motivation.

This is what many of us forget to do when starting anything that requires personal change. Especially int the beginning. Notice how great and awesome a new change feels when you are first starting out. But make no mistake about it, your motivation will gradually but surely fade away. It happens to us all.

When I first started the keto diet I used to watch YouTube videos every day on this topic. This is how I got all my information and at the same time kept at it.

We all want to change but quit as soon as we get uncomfortable. We make up all kinds of excuses why we cannot do it anymore. Most of us have been brought up this way, don’t beat yourself up.

Find yourself two or three YouTubers that are giving daily information on keto and watch one or two videos daily it will help you move forward.

My favorite YouTube are:

  • Dr, Eric Berg
  • Thomas DeLauer
  • Primal Edge Health

Each of them have a unique way to information on the keto diet. They keep me motivated to be better and better on keto.

You can also join a keto group or something like that to motivate each other to keep going. As you progress and lose more weight you will need less motivation as it is going to be part of your daily routine.

I still find myself watching and learning about keto every day.

2. Educate yourself on ingredients.

By educating yourself you will likely make fewer mistakes in the beginning. Take it easy, when I first started I did also not know much either on how what ingredients do what. It takes time and dedication to learn about them. So don’t feel bad if you have never read the nutritional information. Not only the macro’s Carbs, fat, sugar, protein, etc) but the actual ingredients.

There are a lot of new keto friendly grab and go items flooding the market right now. Knowing the right ingredients is the difference between stalling or keep losing weight. Some keto Gurus are all against any processed foods, even if they are keto friendly.

Knowing what oils, hidden sugars and other ingredients that are actually not keto friendly to eat will save you a lot of frustration. Just because something says sugar free or keto friendly does not mean that it is. This is why self-education is so important.

Where I live keto is not popular at all and I only have whole foods to work with, the only exception being almond and coconut flour.

I personally am a fan of primarily eating whole foods. The reason for this is that you get better quality nutrition every time from eating straight from the source and also I do not want to get lazy by getting comfortable eating ready to use items.

Getting used to my daily cooking routine and meal prep was not easy and do not want to get lazy again.

That being said I will try an item here and there.

3. Eat more sodium.

Salt on keto is your best friend.

When we are in ketosis we need to eat more salt because our bodies lose more water with all the minerals within it.

If you do not take extra salt you will start to feel weak and just not right. You can feel lightheaded and out of whack.

The best salts to eat are Himalayan salt and Sea Salt, not table salt. The reason is that table salt does not have the high nutritional value as the two other salts.

Two very important minerals that you lose on keto are potassium and magnesium. These two are responsible for the contraction and relaxation of the heart muscle.

Take 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon of extra salt daily.

Symptoms of low intake of salt can be:

  1. Fatigue
  2. Leg Cramps
  3. Muscle Cramp
  4. Heart palpitations
  5. Head Aces

Salt can also help curb cravings.

4. Don’t eat keto friendly sweet every day.

This is where I learned not to eat that keto mug cake or Almond flour waffle every day.

These low carb sweets did have an impact on my cravings in the long run. I ate about 2 to 3 keto desserts a week, and after a month or so I had almost the same cravings for sweets that I had before going on keto.

They are low carb, but they are high in calories. Beside revamping my sweet tooth, it also made me gain some weight. You can easily overeat on keto sweets.

I did tone it down to two a month, so every other week and this made my cravings go away again and quickly lost the weight gained.

Keep in mind that heavy cream is used in many keto desserts and it does contain carbs even in small amounts.

5. Focus on eating more omega 3 fats.

When you start out on keto I would not worry much about this until you are fat adapted.

Omega 3 fatty acids are great for improving your bodies inflammation. Inflammation is also the cause of most metabolic syndrome diseases.

I do have an extensive and comprehensive article on omega 3 vs omega 6 fats here.

Try to keep your ratio of omega 6 to omega 3: 4 to 1.

The best sources of omega 3 fatty acids are:

  • Mackerel
  • Sardines
  • Herring
  • Grass fed beef
  • Wild caught Salmon
  • Oysters
  • Grass fed butter
  • Pastured eggs (cage free, range free, organic)

As you can see, most of the foods on this list are seafood. If you do not like seafood or are allergic, try a supplement.

6. Don’t be afraid of saturated fats.

Saturated fats are actually healthy for you in contrast of what we all have been taught.

You will not raise your cholesterol levels by eating more saturated fats. This is a FACT! Our bodies make more than 3000 mg of cholesterol every day. Our cell membranes are made up out of cholesterol.

In the beginning of keto I have been very hesitant to eat more fat. As I got fat adapted and felt better eating more fat.

The problem with saturated fat is when you combined carbs and fats, then you can get in trouble.

Best sources of saturated fats beyond meat are:

  • Palm oil
  • Cacao butter
  • Pili nut (butter)
  • Coconut oil

Other sources of saturated fats:

  • Fatty beef (ground beef)
  • Lamb
  • Goat
  • lard
  • butter Cheese

Do not be afraid of eating enoughs of these saturated fat sources, as they will be beneficial to your overall health.

Be sure to also choose wisely when it comes down to cooking oils. You can check it out in an article here (best cooking oils).

7. Eat more protein.

When I first started keto in the year 2017, protein was not something you could overeat on. It was taught not to eat more than 20% to 25% of protein per day.

The last year that has changed with more studies being done on this topic.

Recent studies has concluded that protein does turn into to carbohydrates by the means of a process called gluconeogenesis.

The great thing that they found out is that gluconeogenesis is demand driven. So basically, your body only converts proteins to carbs when it is needed by the body.

Eat more protein without worries. If you are also interested on this topic I do have an article on it here (keto update 2019).

8. Stop snacking.

When you are just starting out on keto you are encouraged not to reduce the quantity of food that you consume. The reason being that you will already be in a bad place in the beginning. Keto flu, feeling weird and on top of that hungry.

Just eat until you feel full. Whenever you feel hungry just eat. Snacking in the beginning is going to be very helpful. Eat nuts, cheese, deviled eggs and other high fat low carb foods. Eventually your body will balance itself out after a while when you become fat adapted.

If you have lost weight but still want to lose more and you have hit a stall, just stop the snacking and see the rest of your unwanted weight go away.

I used to snack a lot on peanuts. I really love peanuts but was gaining weight when I snacked daily on them. What I do is snack maybe once a week.

9. Be prepared.

Try to plan your meals and snacks during the beginning of the week. If you are hungry and do not have something on hand or prepared when you arrive at home, you will most likely grab the first thing that you will encounter.

There are many easy to make ahead recipes on the internet. I use them all the time.

Everyone always ask me to make them a meal plan. The problem with making a meal plan is that I first need to know what that person does and does not like in order to make a meal plan that suites him or her. I personally do not like onions and green peppers. You can make a lot of recipes with those two foods and I would not eat them.

So do your research on what foods you eat and try making someone’s recipe your own. At first, I had only a few recipes, now I have a bunch to mix up my menu.

10. Cheat !!

Don’t you dare cheat on keto!!! Just kidding.

In life there is always two sides to everything. Some good some bad. It just comes down to what you are comfortable with. You know who you are and what you want.

I don’t like the word “cheating”, I do like “rewarding” more. But for the sake of this article I will use the ugly word “cheating”. The fitness and keto guru’s eat the same day in and day out, but for normal people like you and I, one way of eating is not how I intend to live the rest of my life.

The benefits of cheating on a keto diet.

Let’s start with the good news shall we. I like to “reward” myself once in a while. By rewarding yourself for a job well done, you get the sense of accomplishment. I usually cheat once or twice a month on keto.

Whenever I do decide to “reward”, it will be a meal and not a “reward” day. This is because if I do eat non keto the whole day I get very groggy and sleepy. I lose all my energy and just want to go to sleep. My wife on the other hand stays the same regardless :(.

We plan out our reward days. Sometimes, a little too much. We try to keep it fun and by doing this you have something to look forward to. We discuss what we are obsessed to eat that month that is not keto, set a date and wait for the day to finally arrive. It’s like waiting for a small vacation or honeymoon. I do not “reward” myself with healthy carbs. I go all out with bread, ice-cream, doughnuts, pizza, burger’s and…you get the idea. When you can get it out of your system it feels great, just don’t get carried away! Being able to eat non-keto once in a while keeps me sane and drives me personally to keep going on keto. Eating the carbs are great, it’s how I feel after is what I do not like. That being said, getting it out of my system is very important to me.

Downside of cheating on keto.

As with everything in life there are some downsides. My wife and I wife are OK with them. If you are too, go ahead, live a little. Old cravings can come back and make you want to keep eating. My wife goes through this, I don’t. Once she gets the taste of sugar she becomes the cookie monster in real life. But she was always the sweet tooth. So if you are too, look out. The problem is that your blood sugar will drastically rise and fall like it did, give you the “hungry” feeling again. It will stop you from making progress. Your muscle will store glycogen again and your body will start burning glucose again instead of ketones. It will stay for this a couple of days and in some cases even longer. Bloathy and dizziness can occur, I do get them. I get very gassy and it sounds like my tummy is talking to me. You will regain water weight, this in its own is not that big of a problem and will freak you out if you weigh yourself (don’t do it). And if you just got into that shirt and short that you have been waiting to try on, it’s going to be a little tight, but only for a little while. So don’t go eating carbs and go to the mall shopping for clothes the following days.

What to do after a cheat?
Just take it easy and begin to eat a normal keto diet again. You did it once before so don’t even worry about it. You’ve had your carbs now it’s time to get back on it and keep losing weight. Be grateful that you had a reward meal/day and move on.

One thought on “The 10 must do list on keto. Maximize your results!!

  1. Hi,

    I wanted to share some very important news that has been spreading around the internet concerning our future well being.

    I hope you, your family, and friends stay safe by taking the proper precautions as we enter in to confusing and troubling times as we watch a worldwide pandemic unfold with this Coronavirus. Could there be something more deeper going on with all of this?

    Jesus says to His disciples concerning the last days, “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:7-8).

    We have been seeing a record setting amount of Earthquakes world-wide in various places, including places that normally do not receive Earthquakes. Now with this Coronavirus, could this be one of the pestilences that will fall upon us? Where will this leave our economy? Did you know the Bible teaches there will be a cashless society in the last days? Will this be a major stepping stone in bringing that about?

    We are approaching a future of a one-world cashless society in which they will mandate us to have an RFID microchip implanted in our body. This chip will contain all our personal information and we will lose much more of our privacy because of the tracking capabilities.

    More importantly, did you know that this was all prophesied almost 2000 years ago by a man named Jesus? Don’t believe me? Keep reading…This may be the most important thing you will ever read.

    “He (the false prophet) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18).

    Revelation 13:16-18 is speaking of the end times, and this could only be speaking of a cashless money society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Why? Because we could still buy or sell without receiving the mark among one another if physical money was still currency. It logically deduces itself to this reason.

    This mark could not be spiritual, because the word references two different physical locations stating one “OR” the other.

    This is where it really starts to come together. It is shocking how accurate the Bible is concerning this RFID microchip. These are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this RFID microchip in the 90’s.

    “Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about this one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).

    Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible (Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.

    Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand (the two places Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.

    Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16–18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.” Carl believes this is referring to a hypodermic needle when they poke into the skin to inject the microchip.”

    Mr. Sanders asked a doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor replied by saying a terrible sore would appear in that location. This is what the book of Revelation says:

    “And the first(Angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).

    The Bible tells us we cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast, or the number of its name. This number is identified as 666. The Bible tells us to calculate the number 666. How do we calculate 666?

    This is where it gets really interesting. Calculating the number 666 has been long debated throughout the centuries, but has now been revealed in these last days by God. What I will show you confirms itself with the Bible the true meaning to calculate 666.

    Throughout the Bible, God uses the number 3 as confirmation of things. Here are a few examples:

    “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

    “and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

    “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

    Now what is interesting is the the mark of the beast is described in detail in three separate verses (Revelation 13:16,17,18), and each verse lists three different examples of the given topic. The last three being the number 6 being used three times in a row. This is a key point to unlocking how to calculate the number 666.

    What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my previous point about God confirming in threes. So logically, what would be the best way to count the number 666? To count it equally in threes based off the number. We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the start. We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60, because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666. The only logical option is 6+6+6=18. What is interesting is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number itself is verse 18, being the third verse out of three verses that describe the mark of the beast. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

    Another interesting point is the only two other combinations (making a total of three possible combinations) for placing a “+” symbol in between the 6’s are 66+6=72, and 6+66=72. Add both 72’s together and you get 144. Why the number 144 is interesting is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being described in detail:

    “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

    Now if you add up all three numbers by counting 666 by moving the “+” symbol around in all three possible combinations, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is interesting about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was orignally written in Greek. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.

    Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply this same formula, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits:

    “Immediately I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne. And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, in appearance like an emerald. Around the throne were twenty-four thrones, and on the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white robes; and they had crowns of gold on their heads” (Revelation 4:2-4).

    Now if you take 8+8+8=24, and 8+88=96, and 88+8=96, you get 24+96+96=216. Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666. Remember that this was the same exact formula to get the number 162 out of counting 666 that brought about the number 888 when dividing 144,000 by 162. It is perpetual.

    With using the same formula of counting by adding the “+” symbol in between the numbers, why do all these numbers relate in such a way?

    The book of Revelation contains the use of the number 7 in various forms. For instance 7 seals, 7 trumpets, and 7 bowls. What is interesting about the number 37 (three sevens) is if if you divide any number that contains the same single digit three times in a row, such as 111 to 999, it comes out to the value of if you were to add all three numbers up. For example 888 divided by 37 equals 24. So 8+8+8=24. Or 666 divided by 37 equals 18. So 6+6+6=18. Could this be another way of God’s word confirming itself that the mystery behind calculating the number 666 indeed is 18?

    Another interesting point to note is that if you add up all the numbers from 1 to 36, it totals 666. The number 36, as in three sixes? Could this be a hint that we should add up three sixes instead of perceiving the number as six-hundred sixty six?

    So what could this mean? Well we know in this world we are identified by numbers in various forms. From our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license, being identified based on a system of ruler ship. So it is possible that this RFID microchip will contain a new identification that has a total of 18 characters.

    Could this be the name of the beast, the number of its name? The one-world beast system that is identified by 18 characters? This would fit scripture that speaks of a mark that we must have to buy or sell in our right hand or forehead, and that it also contains the number of the beast, during a future cashless money society.

    Go to: http://voice-truth.com to see all the proof!

    The Bible warns us in the end times that a false prophet will rise up doing miracles to deceive many to receive this mark:

    “Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image” (Revelation 19:20).

    No matter the cost, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    We are living in very prophetic times with major Biblical prophecies being fulfilled. When Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as capital of Israel in December of 2017, this was a big step to bring about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Bible tells us that the Antichrist will seat himself in this temple:

    “…and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4).

    In the Islamic religion, they have man called the Mahdi, known as their messiah who they are waiting to appear. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist. I myself have had strange dreams about him. He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith, but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    His real name is said to be Barry Soetoro, and he had his name changed to Barack Obama. But why?

    Jesus says, “And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In Hebrew, the word Barack means “lightning”, and the use of Bama (Strongs Hebrew word 1116) is used to refer to the “heights” of heaven.

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    Regardless, whoever seats himself in that Third Temple in Jerusalem declaring himself to be God IS THE ANTICHRIST. DO NOT BE DECEIVED.

    Why do we need Jesus?

    “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

    “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    Our good works cannot save us. If we step before a judge, being guilty of a crime, the judge will not judge us by the good that we have done, but rather the crimes we have committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy God?

    God has brought down His moral law’s through the 10 commandments given to Moses at Mt. Siani. These laws were not given so we may be justified, but so that we may see the need for a savior. They are the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in each and every one of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it is wrong to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, and so forth.

    We can try and follow the moral laws of the 10 commandments, but we will never catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law given to Moses became flesh over 2000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by fulfilling the law, living a sinless perfect life that only God could fulfill.

    The gap between us and the law can never be reconciled by our own merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to grab on, through faith in Him, He will pull us up being the one to justify us. As in the court of law, if someone steps in and pays your fine, even though you are guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and let you go free. This is what Jesus did almost 2000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled in the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood, with His last words being, “…It is finished!…” (John 19:30).

    Now why did Jesus have to die for us?

    Because God is Holy and just, the wrath that we deserve could not go unnoticed. Through the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it must be dealt with, it must be quenched and satisfied.

    For God has no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). This is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.

    This is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. If that wrath was poured out on us, we would all die and go to hell. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son who’s soul could not be left in Hades, but was raised and seated at the right hand of God in power.

    So now when we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer see’s the person who deserves His wrath, but rather the glorious image of His perfect Son dwelling in us, justifying us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death.

    Now what we must do is repent and trust in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins. This is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, but rather receiving His words, taking them to heart. Where we no longer live to practice sin, but rather turn from our sins and practice righteousness:

    “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

    By doing so we may become transformed into the image of God through faith in His Son Christ Jesus Who is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who ask of Him:

    “Most assuredly, I (Jesus) say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ (John 3:5-7).

    “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His” (Romans 8:9).

    What are you waiting for? Our Father in heaven only wants the best for us, restoring everything this world has stolen from us. This is what it means to be “holy”. To be made whole.

    He is waiting to hear from you. That God given tongue to speak language, through faith, pray to Him, ask Him to forgive you by confessing your sins and be willing to forsake them; that you accept the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross, and that you want His Holy Spirit living inside you transforming you into a child of God.

    Jesus says, “but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him (the Holy Spirit) will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

    Did you know that Jesus spoke more about hell than anyone else, even more than He spoke about heaven?! For this very reason He came to die for us, to rescue us from this place that we deserve.

    He describes hell as a real place where,

    “Their worm does not die
    And the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44).

    And where,

    “There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth…” (Luke 13:28).

    Jesus tells us who to fear,

    “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” (Matthew 10:28).

    “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’

    Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’

    And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.'” (Revelation 21:1-8).

    Out of all the world religions, how can we be sure the Bible got it right? The scientific data has established and continues to support that the universe once had a beginning in which space, time and matter were created. Many know this as the big bang.

    “The non-biblical religions tell us that god or god’s create within space and time that eternally exist. The Bible stands alone and says that time and space don’t exist until God creates the universe.” – Astronomer (Phd) Hugh Ross

    The Bible not only got it right that space, time and matter all came into existence at the beginning of the universe, it also states in 7 different places that the universe is expanding thousands of years before scientists discovered these things.

    Did you know that the real Noah’s Ark was discovered in the location where the Bible told us it would be, as well as having the correct dimensions? As well as proof for the destruction of Sodom Gomorrah and the Exodus account of the Red Sea crossing?

    The Bible is the most translated and read book in the history of the world, full of predictive prophecies, matching what we find in the book of nature. Wouldn’t you expect God’s word to be so?
