Your Testimony - Help Someone By Sharing

Posted on April 8, 2019 at 4:38 PM Comments comments (4)
Please take this opportunity to help someone by proving an experience in your life where God's love was revealed to you.  Please provide as much detail of your experience as you feel comfortable giving.  God's word teaches us that we overcome our adversary the devil by the blood of the Lamb and our testimony.  Your testimony will help someone to overcome the trials of this life.

Revelations 12:10-11 (King James Version)
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”

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."  

Peace In The Midst Of Terror

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 Battle Has Been Won

Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

- Praise JESUS, the BATTLE HAS BEEN WON.  Walk in it trusting not in man but the power of Jesus in you.  Live to Love and Love to Live for him.  You are as he is.  Believe that you are Strong and Mighty through his power and more than capable of achieving the will of God for your life.  Praise God in ALL THINGS Good, Bad and Indifferent.

When life presents you with challenges that are hard to overcome do not be discouraged.  Lift your eyes to heaven and give God THANKS for his love and mercy and embrace your deliverance, as it has already been provided.  Be strong in the Lord and see the truth of your life.  You are a precious jewel paid purchased by the blood of Jesus. Know this to be true!!!!!!!!

Gods love for you is forgiving and merciful.  So let this love be also in you, as a child of the living god.

The Differeence Between Right and Wrong

Posted on July 21, 2015 at 12:54 PM Comments comments (4)
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'

Enduring The Struggles of Life

Posted on June 23, 2015 at 4:49 PM Comments comments (6)
We wrestler daily with an adversary whose desire is to distract us from our blessings.  Those distractions. by design, are created to strengthen us and draw us closer to God, but our adversary would have it to destroy us.  The best defense is in your praises.  The struggles of life do not have to be so, if only you would close your eyes to examine things clearly.  Life becomes so much clearer when you have blinded  your natural eyes to view life spiritually.
