Lord Please Help US

Father in the name of Jesus, please hear our humble prayer.  By your design we are created in Love to love, and seek you for all things.  But we have gone astray to do our own will, which is to lust after flesh, gain material things of no true value, and lie to deceive and thereby steal that which belongs to another.  We strive for things having no honor.  By doing this we have turned your precious creation into something of disgust.  Father please forgive us our sins in the name of Jesus, because you deserve better from us, as you faithfully demonstrate your love toward us as we demonstrate a lack for love towards you.  Please Father, close my eyes and my ears so that I can only see and hear the truth that is in you, and run towards you.  I desire to be a vessel of use for your will.  Please turn me around and place my feet in the direction I should go. Amen.

Fear Has No Place Here

Who knows what will be of tomorrow when today offers death, destruction, and rumors of wars.  As you look around it appears that we are all prisoners of our own will and lusts, having no order or consciousness of right or wrong.   It's no wondering why we are so afraid.  God has not left us; we've chosen to serve a different master.  His name is Satin, and for this reason we should be afraid.  Our only hope is found in 2 Chronicles 7:14.  NOW is the time to run into the arms of our Father God and his Son Jesus, there we will find Love, Mercy, Grace, and Peace.

2 Chronicles 7:14
"If my people, which are called by my name,
 shall humble themselves, and pray, 
and seek my face,  and turn from their wicked ways;
 then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin,
 and will heal their land."

Praise God for his mercy and Grace provided us in Jesus Christ.  It appears that people have lost their sense of reason and rational thinking, and are walking in a deep sense of fear.  Do you not know that with our Father and his Son Jesus we have nonething to fear.  Pride has taken over and forgiveness is no where to be found, but it is good to know that all we need to do is to trust God's love and mercy for our lives and live to please him and not ourselves.  We have become a people after our own hearts and following the pleasures of our own lustful mind, and as a result it is only natural that evil would rise-up greater upon us.  If we would only turn to Christ and live in obedience to God, then will we see a change.

The Differeence Between Right and Wrong

It has become obvious that many in this world have turned away from God and his righteousness.  Legalizing the acts God has dreamed worthy of death, man with man, woman with woman, and the changing of ones appearance from man to woman and woman to man will never change their true identity; no matter what they try to do.  How easily acceptable are we of the things contrary to God. Why?  We are unique by design and special to the one who provides for us, because he created all things.  It is wrong to be acceptable of those things, as it is written in scripture.

'Don't let that thing you permit condemn you'
