2 Timothy chapter 3…There will be terrible times in the last days.

holy-bible-14354271

 

As the time changes , as the seasons move on and the years pass…people will say these are that these are the  last days and JESUS will return soon. But people have been saying this since Jesus left the first time centuries ago. Those of us who seek after JESUS and want to be with Him for all of eternity , want to be with Him and to see GOD face to face and be in eternal peace forever.

The return of our savior…..those of us who have accepted JESUS as our savior and the key to getting into heaven await joyfully for Him. These are terrible times yes, but even JESUS does not know when he will return to take the righteous home with Him.

Reading the Bible gives me peace and comfort. And anyone who loves GOD knows what this kind of comfort is truly. There are some who will pretend to, but when you have the love of GOD in you know who is linked into what you feel.

When those of you who are reading this who seek to witness to encourage others to follow the Lord…do so lovingly., I do pray you will speak JEsus to be her savior.

In reading 2 Timothy chapter 3

2 Timothy 3      New International Version (NIV)

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.

A Final Charge to Timothy

10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, sufferings—what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

There is hope for all mankind who WANT it. GOD is not going to force us to love HIM. Just as you would not force anyone to love you, you know all well in good it would not be sincere and you would be lying to yourself if you think you were able to do so.

Trust in GOD, read His word, study the words and how He tells us the ways of a true happy and righteous life that will give you total peace with Him.

I have to impress upon you all who do read my writings to you , every person I meet and see I wonder if I will meet up with them in heaven when GOD says it is time. I do not want anyone to end up where the evil one will sent for all of eternity long. If you think you have sinned and GOD will not forgive you, you need to turn to GOD, learn to know who JESUS is and why GOD set Him to earth!

We all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of GOD. ALL of us….not one was or is like JESUS. We all will be judged by what we do. So to find this peace , you will not have with your friends that love the world and the ways of the world that do NOT love GOD and the people who do.

Once you leave that circle of friends , it will be hard because they will tempt you to return to their circle and way of life you were in. See they are still under the cloak of confusion of the world as it states in 2nd Timothy 3:1-5 what I copied for you above in this post.

Yes these days are getting closer to the time of JESUS’s return. Get ready for Him. Be apart of the JESUS family and have unconditional love and peace for all eternity with Him in the house of GOD. GOD is good, and ALL of the time GOD is good! Praise GOD! 🙂

Peace be with you all, and may GOD bless and guide you in all your ways! 🙂

 

It is very hard to be good, but easy to be bad.

I need Jesus every single day of my life.

Every second, minute, hour, week, month, year to year to year.

All day long.

Temptations are every where people are. There are those people who are blessed by GOD for doing good and then there are those that are rewarded to living sinfully be the devil.

The struggle to do good is very real, you can not please all people. You should not have to please other people who mean no good for you anyway. We are to please and praise GOD, for those of us who do love him seek after him this is what we do.

34 I will bless the Lord at all times :praise shall continually be in my mouth.

I think about the things that our beloved Jesus had gone through as a man here on earth to save us all from our sins so we may live an abundant life here on earth and to be able to spend all eternity long with GOD the FATHER and HIS beloved son JESUS.

Jesus suffered on this earth by the hands of mankind whom HE was sent to save! Jesus went through being lied on and to, hated for being good, tempered by the devil, beaten, spat on, stabbed , betrayed and even more. Just to save the souls of all mankind that believe in HIM! Love is greater than hate, and this is proven by what Jesus did as a man walking the face of the earth.

How can we as mankind ignore this kind of love and be so stubborn as not to turn to Jesus? Why do we seem to love sin? We all sin. Even those who claim to love the LORD with all of our hearts…we still sin. But for the grace of GOD sending HIS beloved son Jesus here to earth, we are saved from death and given grace in this fallen world of sin.

We are given a choice as to follow Jesus and get on the path of righteousness or to continue to stumble and fall on the path from a loving GOD. It is easy to make mistakes or slip ups. But this is part of being human and of the flesh. The fleshly desires and life we live has an impact on the choices we all make. True joy and love comes from all that is good and right….GOD and his beloved son Jesus.

No one will and can love you like they do, now or ever. Period.

But once we make the choice to follow GOD, the devil will not like that. He thought that you were turned away from GOD for ever and now can keep you away from GOD, from Jesus! He will lie to you and twist your thoughts anyway he can….dont listen to the devils confusion.

It will be hard for you once you turn away from the ways of this fallen world. You are now “Woke and eyes are opened to the truth”. Before you didn’t like the truth told to you, or you didn’t tell truths. Now you seek the truth. You seek Jesus now and the truth He will lovingly tell you.

Think about the awful things that Jesus the son of GOD went through for us all who believe in him….all of his blood that was shed, treated so horribly while trying to save us from eternal death. I am so sorry that Jesus had to go through all of the sins I have done and the whole earth too.

This is so sad when you think about all of the people in the world who prefer doing evil whether they know it is or not…turning away from GOD and his son. They will not be allowed in the kingdom of GOD. They devil is lying to them to keep them from getting into heaven because he can’t get in there now either.

The people who were able to actually see the face of Jesus were blessed to see his beautiful loving face looking at them. They were able to hear his voice talking to them, they could be hugged by Jesus. They could sit down and have a meal with King Jesus. They were able to be fed bread and fish by Jesus. This was so cool to me, to be able to see him face to face.

Now we all have to wait for the second coming of Jesus and I am ready as I speak to you through this post. No more pain. No more temptations. No more mean people around you. No more people who seek to destroy the good people. No more lying. No more stealing.

Just peace, love and praising GOD all day long and feeling the pure love coming from GOD right back at you and seeing the of GOD and his son Jesus forever! That will be the blessing above all blessings!

May a blessing come to all you read this post and share it as well too. Know you are loved by the one and only true living GOD and his beloved son Jesus.

 

Peace!

Ephesians 4:31 – 4:32

friendship 2018

Ephesians chapter 4 verses 31 and 32.

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice

32 And be ye kind one to another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Recently I have seen two Christian gentlemen end a long friendship over a simple misunderstanding. Both men are stubborn and I have known them both for years. It just does not make sense to me as to how two people who do need to talk to each other on the basis of encouraging each other as only people who love the LORD can.

This new post is to show you that no one is perfect and those who think Christians are, you are very wrong. We are in the flesh as well as the rest of mankind. Those of us who seek after the LORD, love the LORD and have a communication with the LORD still will make mistakes in life . We need JESUS as the rest of all mankind does.

Those that hate the LORD and want nothing to do with HIM will always say mean things about people of faith to try to bring us down a notch or two to proudly say “See, I told you they were like that!” The evil hearted seek to destroy us at any given time for any reason. They will twist things/words around , or lie so as to turn those who see what we go through maybe discouraged into following JESUS. We should not do this to other true GOD fearing Christians.

My point is if you love JESUS you will take the time to see what the cause of the misunderstanding is. Not to sit back and point the finger. I have seen people get angry over things as simple as when you THINK a person sees you in a crowd or group setting and they should speak first. Do you always wait to see the person you know speak first? How do you KNOW for sure if they saw you and are just ignoring you? Have they done this sort of thing to you before or more than once? Think about it. If they have not then are you getting angry with them over something that is uncalled for?

angry christian man 2018

Why wait for people to speak first? They maybe going through something that you may not see because you are thinking about yourself right now. And this is the point I am trying to make with this post.

When you have been a friend and a good friend with someone, and they are not being themselves then something is wrong. Take the time to figure it out. Sometimes it take prayer to gain the wisdom we need to see whats going on. Put the pride aside and seek GOD for answers. Don’t use the Bible as a tool to insult or control people in a harsh way. You will not gain your friend’s attention that way especially if they are going through a “trial” already. You know all well and good , we all will have our trials and tests of faith. You do not need to add to it.

 

Angry-young-Christian-man

 

No one wants to be called names or accuse of anything they are not doing. Remember who is GOD and who will be passing judgement when the time comes. This will be done for all mankind. Those of us who do love the LORD and those who don’t. I would hate to see anyone who was blamed for anything they did not do. Friends confront each other face to face. This is Biblical.

Matthew 5:21-24 (ESV)

“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to   judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire. 23 So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

As fellow believers in Christ, we have become brothers and sisters in the family God and fellow members of the body of Christ. We are individual members, yet we are one in Christ.

It is hard to not be angry with a person until you give it to the LORD for HIM to help. It is impossible to be able to handle a hurt by your self. It is the sin that made you angry, not the person themselves. Because they have judged you falsely which is not a good thing, then hurt you as well by the actions they did. Be it verbally or whatever. That’s like the expression throwing the bathed baby out with the bath water.

Ending a friendship is never a happy experience at all. But you sometimes need to when you clash with those not of the body of Christ. This site at “Beyond today” will get more into this at this link.

I even looked up friendship on Wikipedia too. This is something to think about before you cancel out someone.

I know when I head off to work there is a spiritual clash/warfare going on in there. Friendship is made with “birds of a feather and they flock together.” Instead of all of us adult people aiming to be polite and get our work done for the company there are people there who do not love GOD or HIS people and can sense us as soon as we walk into a room. We seem to spoil their day by being there to earn a living. Sad.

Keep your faith and allow your friend a chance to open up to you. For if you have known them for years, like 10 or more there is some there that you don’t see for some reason you are over looking. If they have never ever done them wrong do not do this person wrong either. The Bible speaks about conflict. Here are some verses on the seriousness of it. You can click on the link here. Have your Bible with you. There is a full-page of scripture here on “Bible online”

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Resolving-Conflict/

This year 2018 is just whizzing on by, and we do not know when JESUS will return to earth to take all of us who are in the BODY of CHRIST home to be with HIM. I tell you this is where we want to be away from all of the nonsense of this world. Why add to a persons trials by NOT doing the work of the LORD?

Prayer really does heal all things because only GOD can fix it. HE knows how we work and will make a way, HE always has for me and all of my loved ones as well. GOD will for you as well. Just leave it with GOD, don’t meddle in it, trust GOD. Trust GOD. Trust GOD, and trust GOD again staying in your trust in GOD! Your friendship will be when and if GOD sees fit.

Have a blessed Easter!

 

For he has risen 2018

Good morning to all! I do pray that you all will have a blessed Easter Sunday! For this is the day that the LORD has made! I am so grateful to see another day that our GOD has made for us.

Today is the celebration of the sacrifice that our beloved Jesus has given on the cross to save our souls. Jesus is the only key to heavens gates. And this is so cool, for we know that he has paid the price for all of the sins we all have done in our lives. For not one human can ever go and say they have never sinned. Not one, so this s why we all need JESUS!

Romans 3:23

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

 

Just think, we don’t have to do any works to get into heaven, no favors, nothing but faith and trust in GOD and JESUS! Trusting in the LORD for all of our needs 24/7. You can have peace knowing that GOD sent HIS only begotten son here to earth to suffer and die for all of us who do believe in Him.

Thank  you dear JESUS for saving my soul! Thank you for letting me know that in the end all of us who do have faith in you and believe in you will have everlasting peace. I just sit back and smile knowing so.

No more heart ache and pain, no more mean people who come about to do evil to other people at any given time, no more death, to be with the LORD GOD in HIS heaven with HIS beloved son JESUS!

Heaven is where all good dwells and there is absolutely no evil! Yes! No sin and people who love sin around you. No temptations and weaknesses of the flesh for we will be all spirit enjoying all that is good from GOD the Father and creator of all heaven and earth.

Awesome.

For this is what JESUS has done for us. To make a way for all who do love Him to get into heaven from all of the suffering He went through as a man here on earth! When you look at Mel Gibson’s movie “The Passion of the Christ ” it will show you as an example of what JESUS had gone through in His short years on this earth to save all of mankind on the cross. But I do want to make this point, whatever color skin you believe JESUS to be pay more attention to what was done to save our souls. Because the meaning and purpose of JESUS coming is most important. You can tell what color JESUS is when He returns for sure besides reading the scripture in the Bible, and studying the history and locations given in the Bible.

Just keep your faith in JESUS, and not the lies given by man to confuse those who do not study the word and turn away from it. This is what will trip you up and distract you from the real truth. Our souls need peace and to be with a loving GOD, HIS son JESUS and all of the angels in heaven!

There is no one that can do what our JESUS did as a man here on earth to save all of mankind. JESUS is without sin, pure, right by GOD. All of the pain and suffering we caused JESUS to go through on the cross. Because of our weaknesses of the flesh. All of it was paid for us 1,985 years ago in Judea from when JESUS died at 33 years old from what I understand. Golgotha “The place of the skull”. Matthew 27:33

One post by a Christian site called “Christians standing with Israel ” gave some information on the location of the crucifixion here at this link. Always when looking things up have your Bible with you. Everyone has their own interpretation of what they have learned and may not be 100% even with the best intentions. Including me.

http://www.christians-standing-with-israel.org/where-was-jesus-crucified.html

So now knowing the tremendous things GOD has done with HIS son JESUS to save us because they love us so, why not listen to what they are saying and seek after them? Get your faith on and find peace. There is no sin that once you come to JESUS and leave that sin alone, love and follow JESUS…that you can not be forgiven. If you do not believe me, just ask JESUS.

Find a quiet place to yourself with absolutely no distractions and talk to JESUS. He will not lie. Ever.

May you all have a blessing from the reading of this word and sharing it with others.

Peace!

Sundays breaking of the bread. Families bonding through food and prayer.

Raisin Bread 2018 2

Hello everyone. I want to share with you the thought of a long gone tradition of Sunday dinner. Some of us are still blessed to be able to share it with relatives that would travel to see you and share that special meal. And this is a good thing.

What the delicious meal was , it was a way to bind with the family a special way no other human relationships did for me. As a child, it was all cooked by my grandmother who made everything from scratch and very time-consuming to prepare.

Family would come in and smell the food and begin to salivate. Hugging and kissing each other from not seeing each other for so long. We always had the LORD in all we said and did. And when the meal was on the table we all went in to the dinning room to eat.

We sat down and held hands, bowed our heads and prayed. Giving thanks to God for the safe trip to and for the blessing of the meal, and the cook. My beloved grandmother.

Acts 2:46 English Standard Version (ESV)

46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts,

As we live in a new era where things are not the same as it were even ten years ago, both parents have to work because of the cost of things going up so high. My both of parents worked too. And my point today is that we need to find time to pry together at our meals at home. Making these Sunday meals special for the children to remember and understand these traditions. And if you don’t have time to cook, eat out and say grace over your food there and in your car back home mention bible verses that pertain to this bonding.

John 6:35 English Standard Version (ESV)

35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.

Children seem to remember scripture better with food when you mention bread…then they will remember the scripture with bread in it. Like they know about the homemade bread that Mom or Dad made, and will link the two together.

Deuteronomy 12:7 English Standard Version (ESV)

And there you shall eat before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your households, in all that you undertake, in which the Lord your God has blessed you.

You can even if you have the time get into making bread that you and the children will help you with, and while it is baking go over some scripture to help them to memorize the word. Here is a site’s link to some scripture you might what to use:

Open Bible

https://www.openbible.info/topics/eating_together

Raisin Bread 2018 4

This is my homemade bread in the “rise” mode on my “Breadman” bread machine. While this is doing its thing, I am able to multi-task. You can get these at yard sales or thrift shops for $5.

Raisin Bread 2018 3

Bread is done and is going on a cooling rack before cutting in to slices. I am giving you the recipe I used to make this so you will be able to make and share bread with your family too. This is for a bread maker machine. I think it can be converted to a traditional oven as well. But you will have to hand knead it, and depending on your elevation how moist the dough should be. This machine will maker your dough alone and you can put the dough into your oven at 350. Not all recipes are the same for each bread machine. So be aware.

Makes 1-1/2 pound loaf

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

3/4 cup warm water

1 egg

1 TBS spoon of butter or oil

2 -2/3 cups of all-purpose flour

3 TBS dry milk

2 TBS sugar

1/3 cup raisins

1 -1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp salt

1- 1/2 tsp dry yeast

Let the bread cool on cookie racks before cutting it. Enjoy your bread.

 

1 Corinthians 10:31 English Standard Version (ESV)

31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

As our kids grow up and are in the world with secular distractions around them and us, we need to encourage our children and make sure they stay in the word to keep the bonds not only with us the parents,  but with our GOD.

May you havea blessing for the reading of this word and sharing it as well. Pass it forward. Have a good day in the Lord.

 

Peace!

Deuteronomy 6:5

“And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.”

Father GOD I give you the praise and honor and love from all of my heart mind and soul, at all times. For with you and your beloved son JESUS whom I claim as my savior are my total comfort zone.

With you Father GOD do I trust in to get through each day of life that you have given me to make it through this world. You are the positive force in my life in this negative ways of the world. For with you Father GOD is my pure joy!

No one thing on this earth will give me the pure love and joy on this earth because of how much I know that you love me. Your love is perfect beyond measure!

For with your perfect love, the sending of your beloved son JESUS on this earth. To save the lives of all of mankind from the sins we all have done. To the sacrifice your beloved obedient son to save all of mankind is so far beyond the understanding that we mankind can ever comprehend!

Bless you FATHER GOD at all times now and through all of eternity long!!! I seek to be with you Father GOD when my time is up on this earth. To see your face, to hear Jesus say “Job well done” at the gates of heaven will be the sweetest thing I will ever hear. To be able to see you and your son in heaven, to live there for all of eternity long is the best “praise party” to ever be invited to!

So many trials I have been through in my life and by your grace I was pulled right through them all!  I thank you for saving me and blessing me so. My trust is with you Father GOD, for when I cry out to you with the tears in my eyes you know what I feel. I can not hide my feelings from you for you do know my heart.

I thank you Father GOD for your son Jesus, and sending him as the “key” to heavens gate. For I know as I live here on earth a place is made for me and all of mankind who have Jesus as their savior! What peace! What joy! What love! All from you and all that you do!

Praise and glory be to you dear beloved Father GOD at all times now and forever more to and though all of eternity long!

I love you dear Father GOD with all of my heart mind soul and strength!

Stop the wars, bullying and fighting, focus on GOD.

Kids fighting 2018

Photo from http://www.themotherco.com/2012/05/when-friends-family-fight/

When I see anyone of any age fighting it make me uncomfortable. It is not a good thing to see. For what I see is the intense anger or hate that is making these two come at each other. Like this picture here, it is an uncomfortable thing to see 2 little ones fighting like this. Right? Since Cain slew Able in the book of Genesis in the Holy Bible, some siblings did not get along.

But you see, adults will go after each other the same way, and it can be worse. It becomes more complicated and destructive when these things do take place. With 2 people, families, neighborhoods, and countries. Over what? And as adults, why did not the two aim to get along? If it was a misunderstanding then it should have been addressed. But in the world of spiritual warfare, I really do know why. And this is sad. This happens anywhere there are people.

Children may not know better until a loving parent steps in and shows the children that this is not good what they are doing at all. I am hoping that this is what went down with these girls in the picture. The maybe on better terms now knowing that what was going on was not a good idea. I have seen siblings doing this sort of thing as a child myself and grew these same that I knew who could not get along were very loving and close when as adults.

James 4 :11

11 Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sistera or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it.

 

Nat Geo Ranger 2018

I do no like fighting, guns or wars. They steal lives, mangle and hurt people, orphan children, tear up families, kill animals for sport and not food and clothing and distract those who love GOD into ways they should not be heading to. Keeping those who need a chance to follow GOD, and not getting it. Nations of people fought in Bible times and we will continue to do so until JESUS comes back in the rapture. All of us who love GOD are waiting for the return of JESUS and it can be at anytime.

We as believers in the word of GOD, who do love GOD and HIS son JESUS need to pray for all of the planet. The whole planet. The people, the earth all that is in it. We need to. If those who do not believe can’t do it due to little or no faith then who will. Each of us that has lived on this earth has seen , been in some type of war or fight. No matter what generation you belong to, you have heard about one on the news, or know of a relative that was sent to battle in the military.

 

war

When you think about it, we are all descendants of Adam and Eve. Hating and killing each other instead of keeping our mind on the LORD. Not good. Many have not had the chance to know of GOD and HIS son JESUS if they are your neighbor or have lived in an area of the world where there are no people to minister to them. And it is not only in Africa like many seem to think. It is ALL over the world. It can be even in your own home with your loved one(s) who are lost in darkness walking away from JESUS. Leaving you alone to pray for them and lead them to GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS to save their souls.

I do not like wars, as I have mentioned it before. I am grateful for the service men and women who did their best to protect this country with their lives and limbs. They should be respected for it, they gave all they had. I have family that have served too, bless all of those who did for peace. But this would not need to be if we did not feel the need to kill off people who do not agree with us or they to kill us off either.

The kings and presidents of other countries should go out there on the battle grounds. That might stop it too. Those who feel the need to take out other countries usually are at home in the safety of military as they say fire at he opposition. If these same men or women were the ones made to go out and fight, they would rather not. Our sons and daughter would not have to fight.

Romans 12:18 Context

15Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. 16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. 17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

It is very hard to do anything with out JESUS. To be like JESUS and to forgive those that hate you, is impossible without HIM. The devil knows what mankind weaknesses are and plays on it. He knows what to do , to cause strife among the people. Staying focused on the LORD is our strength at all times.

Prayer over your household, so that your children will come home safe and sound from school and be safe in school. Once prayer was taken out of the school the devil laughed because he was able to confuse the children and lead them into destruction and confusion of all kinds. Keeping them distracted from GOD.

These same children are now adults who are trying to influence our children who are not being taught about GOD and salvation , and those who are too as well. But once you have and continue to help your children to develop a good strong faith every night it will be their shield. Do not depend in others to teach your child about the LORD, you do it. You don’t know for sure what kind of person (in faith and righteousness level) you are trusting your child to.

Proverbs 22: 6

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

There on more verses here at this site about children and teaching them prayer at this site.

Once we go back to prayer, and teaching our children prayer, they will see the ways of fighting and war in unnecessary. The ways of GOD and peace are necessary.

Praying to the one and only true living GOD!

Conflict-In-The-Church

Upon my understanding of what church is, many of us have their very own opinions of it is different. I need to know more about why we as people who pray to the one and only true living GOD argue about faith and how to pray. And many of you who go to church have seen debates as well going on there that made it seem more like a political gathering than a pleasant fellowship of faith gathering. I have read in the word that we are the body of Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:27 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

Church to many is a building where we all gather to give GOD praise and honor HIM in unity. To study the word through the Pastor or to have bible study. To have fellowship with like minded people. To have the religious ceremonies such as marriage, Christenings, funerals and Baptisms. Many loving and bonding Christian ceremonies go on in church by always putting GOD first in it.

Bickering like how the secular people do over a football game is not what I feel JESUS would do or would want us to do either. The secular crowd of people will only pay attention to Christians if they feel Christians doing something wrong. See or hear about us doing something wrong. Just plain out even doing anything they do themselves. They look to see imperfections and not knowing that all mankind is imperfect , for this is why we all need JESUS as savor. If they read they Bible they would know. For we can not save ourselves. We need to be united as believers and encourage one another. We need to keep in mind that those who don’t believe will say, “See, I told you they were like this or that. Christians fight too, so what is the point in listening to them?”.

A House Divided

(Matthew 12:22-30; Luke 11:14-23)

20And the multitude cometh together again, so that they could not so much as eat bread. 21And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself. 22And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils. 23And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan? 24And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end. 27No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

 

How are we going to learn to be united as brothers and sisters for JESUS Christ if we re not focused on what JESUS is telling us in the word how to have the inner peace we all need to get through the nonsense of this world when we can not get along in a gathering in a building made to have Christian fellowship?

If one is confused and is looking for answer to what is this all about why these people call on JESUS, we have to be ready for an answer. If GOD is leading one child of GOD to say or do something that will plant the seed in someone, then being contradicting and discouraging will discourage 2 people. The one trying to encourge one person, and the one who needs to be encouraged to follow the LORD and be saved. We do not want to have anyone turn away from wanting to come to the LORD.

 

Disagree Or Agree Directions On A Signpost

1 Corinthians 11:18

“For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it.”

We are all one with JESUS when we have the love of HIM in us. When we believe in GOD and know that JESUS is our savior of our very souls. When we know just how much GOD loves us all to even send HIS son to earth and suffer as how JESUS did.

We should remember there is no divisions in mankind, we are al the same. But we choose what path we want to walk down in life. Be it GODS way or the worlds way. No color , gender , beauty standard, financial status, where you were born, or what title you have to your name . No rules made by mankind to divide mankind from one another. GOD is not a respecter of men, or women. You maybe a member of  a church committee, CEO of a company, or a King or Queen in a country. Every knee shall bow before GOD.

Romans 2:11 King James Version (KJV)

11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

My point to all of what I was saying is we need to get into the mindset of unity with a JESUS heart. Connect with our savior and listen to HIS guidance in the word and with HIM talking to you giving you a loving push into HIS direction. No matter what country you come from, we need to lose the worlds standards. That are put into our faith and to do our faith as how GOD wants it to be. Not someone whose worldly and popular saying they are spiritual and changing the meanings of the bible to suit the lifestyle they live. We all will have to answer to GOD regarding the ways of the world, all of us. Me, you, the person walking by you , people in the movies we watch. Those that have died before us, and those yet to be born if the Rapture does not come before then.

Church is within us all, not a building. The building we go into was made for us to gather together and be sheltered from the weather. As we assemble together to join in praise and fellowship. This site, “The United Church of GOD” had a good post on it regarding what I am speaking of.

The United Church of GOD

I ask that we all pray for peace across the world and become unified in the Church and all over the world. We who do believe in GOD and HIS son, need to forget our pride. As to who is right on how to pray and when to pray as long as we are praying as how GOD wants us to pray. And how we encourage other to come to JESUS, there needs to be a seed planted in them. Let GOD make it grow.
May a blessing be on those who read the world with the love of GOD in thier heart, and to encourage those that seek after JESUS to get their faith on, and for those who share this post.
Peace!
