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! 🙂

 

Anointing oil for the sick in need of healing.

blessed oil from Teresa Mcravin 2017

 

GOD is so cool, loving and wonderful beyond what we simple humans will even understand.

My husband and I want to have a ministry that will touch people as we are led by what GOD will have us to do. This blog is part of it, but we want to do better and more as how GOD will inspire us to do so. We had started a “Go Fund Me Page” for Christian Ministry, https://www.gofundme.com/jjmaslinsartanddesigns.

But because he did fall ill as we were trying to get it to take off, I had to put it to the side to see where GOD was leading us then. Why was all of this happening at this time. Right at the time I started it …..things had gotten worse for him. He woke up needing to be sent to the hospital’s emergency for not being able to breathe.

But somehow we did know, it all was a distraction from the evil one to take us away from the ministry we both wanted to do.

1 Corinthians 7:35

“And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.”

 

But you know, when you want to do what is right for GOD because you love HIM and HIS son JESUS…..sometimes there will be s bump in the road. Our bump in the road came when he became so ill that he had to in the hospital for months. It was a very hard and trying time for the both of us.

The very people who we had thought were good friends, Christians that attended church every single Sunday and who knew the Bible from end to end looked down their nose at us and turned their back to us.  Some secular people thought it was funny to make light of what we were going through and laughed too when they found out that my husband was ill.

All of the hospital stays and emergency rooms at all hours of the day was grueling. Seeing doctor after doctor until there was one doctor that tested to see what was wrong and found out what was wrong. They could not see what we were really going through, only the LORD could. I am so grateful for GOD helping and healing us. I am sure there are many of you who have gone through something similar. But I tell you from my heart, I was faithful to GOD and prayed every single night, during the day as well.

Philippians 4:6 – 4:9

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.

9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

This is all to say that all of us need to depend on GOD and not the world and man kind. It has brought us a new understanding in our faith and closer to GOD. You grow every single day I faith anyway as you learn how to lean on the LORD. Walking by faith.

But the true friends that we found to be true when told of what we were going through came through so fast and asked if they could pray for us even before we could say all that was wrong. My one good friend from childhood sent me a bottle of blessed oil that you see in the picture.  She had her Pastor bless it and sent it to me in the mail for we are miles apart right now.

James 5:14

“Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:”

King James Version (KJV)

When you have trust and faith in GOD and need HIM to lead you in all you that you do, HE will do just that. I tell you I could not get through with all of the doctors appointments, paying bills as best as I could, making sure that he was taken care of , going to work full-time, and then the house as well. I needed and still need the strength to get through every thing still from here on in life.

The healing of the hands and the anointing of the oil is awesome. You have the faith of all of the people who blessed it and sent it to you along with your own to get the need taken care of. Faith is what you need to get this understanding. And you will get the understanding from having a loving trusting communication with GOD the FATHER and HIS beloved son JESUS.

The oil my friend sent to me that was used was olive oil. And I tell you as soon as I touched the box it came in even , I felt relief. I know that GOD and JESUS are with me anyway, but it is good to feel another blessing.

 Leviticus 8:12

“And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron’s head, and anointed him, to sanctify him.”

King James Version (KJV)

I will say that the oil is comforting with your faith and prayers from all who are children of GOD as you are too. It is such a blessing to be around people who are believers, brothers and sisters in the LORD.

Here are some more verses on anointing oil in the Bible.

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Anointing-With-Oil/

Be encouraging and encourage each other. We all may have a cross to bear that you are unaware of just because all of us handle things differently and have a different bond with GOD the Father than the next person. Let GOD be the judge of what is in a person’s heart and lean not on your on understanding.

When you get past the situation you will be able to give thanks to GOD. For now, my husband is back home and getting the rest he needs and doing better! See what I mean? GOD is good!

Ephesians 5:20

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”

King James Version (KJV)

Praise and glory be to GOD ALMIGHTY at all times now and forever and forever more and through all of eternity long.

May a blessing be to all who read this post and share it.

Peace.

I know that GOD is on control!

Smile, GOD loves you!

smiling baby 2017

I love to look at happy faces. And when it is a beautiful baby smiling , I think that this child is blessed to be able to have a happy smiling face like this little one. The caption is what I have thought as well with the little ones…..they are being told they are loved and have the Angels from GOD watching over them.

2 Timothy 4:18

“And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

“How I sleep knowing GOD is in control!” I have seen this in the babies of my own.  This photo by the way is from #INSTAGRAMs #Frobabies. So I am sharing this blessing with you all.

When we get older and are introduced into the world we loose that comfort zone like this when we happen to meet up with people who have turned away from GOD or do not have faith and feel they don’t need GOD in their lives.

You know, when you see a person who is always seeming happy and do have their lives together….like they don’t have a care in the world? Or they don’t have a cross to bear or no issues that are concerning them at all? We should not judge. We all have things we need GOD to help us with, burdens that we need to leave with GOD because only HE can fix it. Only GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS. These people are smiling becasue the LORD is giving them pure heavenly joy through it all.

But you and I do pull through it and you will smile because you know that the FATHER of all FATHERS is looking out for you. Holding you close to get you through it all. Like the baby below.

Dad with baby 2017

Here is another picture from #Frobabies that just made me smile was a Dad holding onto his baby. The baby has a burden right then with the oxygen tubes, and the Dad is showing so much love in this picture holding on to the little one.  I got inspired and wanted to share my thoughts on how I feel that GOD does for us but on a greater scale.

John 16:33

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Isaiah 41:10

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

 

I come to the FATHER all f the time with a burden and HE gives me comfort and joy each and every time. It is done with HIS hands , holding me close to HIM. Keeping me safe at all times in my life! GOD is the perfect loving heavenly one and only true living GOD of all time and eternity!

Me being a grown woman now, I still smile and feel like the first picture knowing that our GOD is in control. You may get an upset once in a while but your faith will keep you settled in heart and mind. For the FATHER and HIS SON JESUS will give you the comfort that you will need.

Isaiah 54:17

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”
These scriptures can be found at this link about “Protection from evil”.

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Protection-From-Evil/

And you know with faith you can see the word of GOD and HIM leading you, just where you need to go, and whom HE will send in your life that some how both of you can help each other. GOD the FATHER speaks the truth, and so does HIS son JESUS. And we need to remember that GOD sent HIS son JESUS here on earth to save us from all of the sins we ALL have done our whole lives long. So when you read the word, know it is GOD telling you and I just ho much HE does love us!

 

Philippians 4:8 – KJV

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Praise and glory be to GOD the FATHER! Thank you and bless your son FATHER GOD, JESUS for my salvation! Thank you dear beloved JESUS for saving my soul!
May a blessing be passed to you for reading GODS words and give you peace and salvation!

Why don’t you love Him?

Jesus on the cross 2017 3

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I do love JESUS with all of my heart, mind, strength, and soul. All day long. And ach time I think about what GOD the Father of all creation here on earth did…by sending His only begotten son I know I am loved. When I know what the Bible says about what Jesus went through on this earth just to save all of mankind….I will cry and even feel ashamed of what I have put JESUS through. And He went through all of what you do see in the picture there and more.

He was lied on and to by others.

He was betrayed by those around Him including Judas.

He was abandoned and left alone by those who were following Him.

He was whipped and beaten, so bad that he was not recognized.

He was treated like he was a thief, and hung and set to die between two thieves on crosses.

He did not have a place to rest His head or a roof over His head where he could stay in as His own.

He showed love and was hated.

He came in peace, love, and showing all mankind the truth and the light…..and those who did not want that did wanted him dead.

Jesus on the cross 2017 2

As we go through life and meet other people, cross path for a while many people will tell you that they do believe in GOD and His son JESUS. But not all of us do so at the same level of faith. So we who want to achieve the highest faith at time will have to choose to e with those who are like-minded. Otherwise these people who you choose to get close to will resent you because they do not want to walk totally in the light.

They will not love JESUS as you do. So if they don’t love JESUS you know all well in good they will not love you . Pray for them and move on. Bless their hearts and let the Lord take over from there. Plant the seed lovingly and let the Master Gardener make it grow.

I used to wonder why so any do not love JESUS after all He went through to save our souls from evil destruction. Can not they see that JESUS is all love, and GAVE His life so we all can live in peace with Him?

Jesus on the cross 2017

To live with picking and choosing what you want to live by, saying that you do believe in GOD and that they do know about JESUS is walking the line. Reading the Bible and picking what they want to listen to, and follow. This is not committing your self to the LORD.

You know the Bible is about life and truth. Showing examples of what those who do not follow the way to righteousness will cause you. Like what the Pharaoh Ramses was doing to Moses and the followers of the one and only true living GOD. And what the end of it was, he was defeated by the hand of GOD.

In the Bible we have read about the forgiveness JESUS has too. The woman by the well who had many husbands. She followed JESUS and blessed Him with oil for His burial. That must have been so hard to know that the very person who did show you a GODLY, pure love was going to be sent away to be crucified on a cross. Where you could only give  Him comfort by giving Him oil and your own love. There is not enough you can do to show or give love to JESUS, not enough at all.

How many people do you know that will physically and mentally go through exactly what JESUS went through to save your life?

How many people do you know that will love you as how JESUS loves you right now?

How many people do you know will forgive you for the evil things you did to them or others as how JESUS did?

How many people will bear your burdens for you, or help you as how JESUS will?

Who can you depend on like GOD the Father and His son JESUS?

Who will you be able to depend on like JESUS?

How many people will tell you the truth like JESUS?

How many will be a friend to you like JESUS?

 

Matthew 27King James Version (KJV)

27 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:

And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.

Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,

Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.

And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.

And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.

And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.

Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.

Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;

10 And gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.

11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.

12 And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.

13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?

14 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.

15 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.

16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.

17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?

18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.

19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.

20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.

21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.

23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.

24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.

26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.

28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.

29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!

30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.

31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.

32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.

33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,

34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.

35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

36 And sitting down they watched him there;

37 And set up over his head his accusation written, This Is Jesus The King Of The Jews.

38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.

39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,

40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.

41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,

42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.

43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.

44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.

45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.

46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.

48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.

50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

55 And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:

56 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedees children.

57 When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus’ disciple:

58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.

59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,

60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.

61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.

62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,

63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.

64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.

65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your way, make it as sure as ye can.

66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.

No one can love us like GOD and His son JESUS, ever. You may very well have loving Grandparents, Mom and Dad, siblings, kids, grandkids, family and friends. But the love you get from GOD and His son is special, perfect, comforting and non stop.

When we put the LORD first in our lives , things are so much easier to in our lives. We listen to His righteousness and guidance to get through all of the ways of the world. We are not picking and choosing when to be right or when we feel we want to do what we want. Not what GOD wants. If you seek to get into heaven, where there is pure love and peace, why would you think GOD would want the ways of the world in HIS house in heaven? The devil was kicked out of heaven for that, and this is who you listen to when you turn away from GOD.

I will say it is very hard as a loving Christian to go about life with people around you who live a worldly life. They do not see what they do is wrong, and they say things like “Everybody does that….”. They say this because they have turned from GOD and His son and want you to be the same way.

Stay in your faith and close to the LORD, for there is where your 1st and true happiness is. Everything else will fall into place, because GOD will lead you through the darkness into the light of peace, love, protection, comfort, and to never feel lonely.

You will feel HIS ever-present love blanket all around you. Ask JESUS to help you, ask Him to make His self present to you and into your life at all times! And He will because He does love you!

JESUS suffered.

Giving thanks even in times of trouble.

1 Theselonians 2017

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)

18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

We all have heavy burdens to bear at sometime in our lives as soon as we have contact with other people. From as a child being harassed and bullied in school, to when we are teens from peer pressure, to when we meet the one we marry and need to carry more responsibilities than we ever would conceive as a child because we wanted to be a grown up. Never knew what we were heading into until we step right in it.

As we grow older , we remember when we were younger and did not know what a blessing it was to be  child in a happy home. We did not know as for when you get older and have more independence that the independence would mean you will have to depend on GOD and His son Jesus more and more with every waking day. And to depend on what you are able to do with GOD leading you.

I thank GOD for every single blessing that HE has granted me through my whole entire life long…..

For having a GODly family that feared and loved the LORD, that taught me about salvation and what the meaning of the cross is. It is where our savior gave His life so we can live with Him in heaven.

For having good health,

For keeping me and all of my loved ones safe and sound,

For always leading me right,

For  loving me so, that HE sent HIS only begotten son here on this earth to save the souls of ALL mankind who do believe in HIM

For blessing me so,

For never leaving me. Letting me know that HE is always with me.

For giving me comfort in trying times,

For giving me the strength, wisdom, discernment, confidence and patience I need to live on HIS earth with no fear. For GOD did not give us the element of fear, and I do so trust in HIM.

For JESUS as my savior.

Here are scriptures we can read on giving thanks on this site!

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Thankfulness/

Ephesians 5:20

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”

Psalms 106:1

“Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.”

King James Version (KJV)

I can go on, and on. And once we see that we have these blessings that are given to us we can make it through and need to stay closer to our heavenly FATHER. Oh I do thank you FATHER GOD for all that You have done and will do my whole entire life long.

I pray that you all have had a blessed thanksgiving day. It is not a religious day …but we can make it so with prayer and thanks to GOD. For we know were our blessings flow from.

Peace!

1-corinthians-7-2

You when I see something that touches my heart I need to speak up and say what I am feeling.

And marriage is something that is sacred, gift from GOD along with the gift of sex for each other. For the man who is married to the woman and for the same woman for her husband.

Once we take these vows, we need to understand that they are said before GOD and not just the pastor , reverend . minister, priest or the justice of the peace in the court-house. It is a vow to your spouse right up before GOD. It is a vow to GOD first and foremost.

1 Corinthians 7:2

“Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.”

I have seen many of lonely people who will knowingly see that the person they are with are married. Now if you don’t know, and they said that they were not married this is another thing. But if you do, leave them alone and move on. They are liars and will never leave their spouses for you, if they did not want to be with them they would not be.

The way how divorce papers can be written up these days, it could be printed up on something like #LegalZoom cheap. (GOOGLE-it) I am not recommending divorce at all, but for someone to really want to leave another there is no excuse to bring another person into your misery. Ever. If your spouse cheats on you, then it is up to you to stay or go, for they did break the vows. And that is something to think about when you know all of the sexually transmitted diseases out there being passed from person to person. This is nothing new…it is an old problem with new people.

When you are married to a person, you don’t expect them to cheat on you, the kids that are part of the union and to lie before GOD…let alone the person that they are involved with outside of your marriage. This person maybe under the understanding that this person they are involved with is single and will marry them.

I see it happen a lot, and with some women in where I do work see nothing wrong with that. They will have the man they call their boyfriend who is married to another woman take them on trips…..buy them flowers….take them out. All of the things they know that a lonely woman will need.

They may never marry his lonely soul. If they have been into fornication with each other, there is no need for him to feel obligated to him or her for he or she can always say to him or her you knew what you were getting into. Then what? If your faith is not in the LORD and into the secular things if the world you will not see just what hard and trouble you are in. You will not see anything wrong with it at all.

But it is wrong. If you feel that your spouse is cheating then they need to be confronted and get the situation solved one way or another. You can not go to any outside source like a friend, family or your Mom and Dad. Once you bring it out you may see that your ouside sources dont know what they were talking about. Well how could they? They are OUTSIDE of your household! If they do not have truthful evidence then they are causing nothing but evil trouble.

 

man and woman one flesh

It is not good to involve anyone in it from family. Your family is going to be on your side even if YOU are wrong to begin with because the spouse is the outsider. They can not see what is going on, and do not need to. This is between you and the LORD. Prayer heals, and if the one who is wrong can not see it, the LORD will show them lovingly and with patience. It could happen in a week or 20 years….but it will happen, they will see that cheating is wrong to bring into the relationship of marriage.

I have to say this, sex is not all there is to life as a Christian. Maybe to those who are secular with little or no faith it is. But when you love GOD you put Him first. People who are not Christians will assume we Christians and I mean all …..have the same desires and thought that they do with the leaning on their secular understanding. They will never believe in their minds that you do what they do, just hide it.

NO. We all do not. We are not perfect, but the things we hold fast and close to us are not the same! If your mind is on the LORD and seeking to get into heaven, and you love GD with all of your heart you do not seek after worldly things for you don’t need them. You need the LORD.

Do not let the ways of the world distract you from the path of righteousness ever. Yes we may slip and fall, but we know that JESUS is there to catch us when we fall so we can get back up and on the path of righteousness.

1 Corinthians 7:3-4

Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.

4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.

Marriage is a sacred way to live. Respect it, be it yours or another persons marriage. You will stay out of all kinds of evil trouble and will peace. This is why reading the word and asking GOD for understanding will keep you at a joyful state of mind that non believers just don’t get it. Here is some more scripture to read at this link.

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Listening to GOD’s loving guidance

God wants your attention 2017

 

When we pray to out heavenly Father God, we want His Holy attention. Right? You call to GOD and expect Him to hear and answer your prayers. You know in your heart that GOD can do all things . You know that God did send his one and only son JESUS to save us all from the nonsense of this world and our sins.

But do we wait for the answer that our GOD is giving us? Do we wait as long as WE want and then take matters into out own hands. Do we pray for guidance and expect GOD to answer in the way how we expect or want?

There are times when any of us humans do not wait long enough to see what GOD is doing and taking the matters into our own hands because we are leaning on our own understanding.

And then wonder why things are not going right. Being prideful and assuming you know it all.

Using GOD for only when you need Him. You do not truly love GOD with all of your heart, mind , soul and strength. That’s not a good mindset to have by the way. Love GOD.

Mark 12 - 30 in the Bible 2017

Or thinking GOD is ignoring you.

Or GOD answers other people’s prayers and not yours.

Or thinking GOD does not love you. Well then why did GOD send His only begotten son to be the savior of the whole world from the sins that mankind had done and still continues to do to this day?

Were you praying for GOD to do something that was not righteous to someone, that GOD tells you not to do in HIS commandments?

You pray to win the lottery. You see people who have millions of dollars living it large with expensive life styles. You have a modest home and lifestyle and have many bills to pay and wonder why you can not have the same. Well. This maybe the only “heaven” they will have if they do not know JESUS and accept Him as their savior. You don’t want to be like them, you want your heaven to be where you will see the face of GOD and all of the angels and to live with JESUS when your life is done. To hear JESUS say “well done” and let you into heaven.

God may be talking to you right now and you may not hear Him because of the distractions of the world. Things of the world will get you turned around and confused to the point you will wonder if GOD loves you or not.

Some people have to take a hard fall to be able to understand as to what is going on with them. If you do not keep a strong communication with GOD then you will have overlooked what he is telling you.

“The Ministry of the Moth” by a pastor of the name Jentezen Franklin is on You tube. Here is the link:  https://youtu.be/BFVq93p7-HU .  He is expressing how important it is to listen to GOD

GOD’S warnings before destruction in the Bible.

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Warning-Before-Destruction/

Jentezen Franklin and other pastors have been saying the same the thing I have felt for sometime. We mankind should never lean on our own understanding. If we are bold, proud and not humble before the LORD, it will be hard to humble your self. Men who feel just because  they are men, they do not have to pray as hard as they do like women do. Or that GOD will answer a man before a woman.

I have seen those who are so proud take a hard fall. It is not good to see things like this happen. But you will see these people get back up only when they learn from the mistakes they have made to fall as hard as they did.

You do not, and I mean do NOT want GOD to turn away from you if you are not willing to listen to HIS wisdom. EVER.

Hosea 5:15King James Version (KJV)

15 I will go and return to my place, till they acknowledge their offence, and seek my face: in their affliction they will seek me early.

God will talk to you gently at first as how a loving Father will. But when HE turns from you and allows you to fall, you will then wish you did listen in the first place. Do your best to seek after GOD and follow HIM and HIS son JESUS. It will be hard at first when you are stubborn and are using your own understanding. But GOD knows ALL and can see ALL. HE has the whole picture and HIS wisdom is unmatchable.

We listen and we will have peace and joy even in hard times.

Praise and glory be to GOD at all times now and forever and for all of eternity long.

1 Corinthians 16:13. Stand firm in your faith!

stand firm 2017

I will tell you it is very, very hard to stand firm and be sinless, perfect and right 100% of the time. Even though you know all of the commandments by heart. Even though you will attend church righteously every Sunday and go to Bible study. We aim our days every single morning to do GODS will. We have accepted Jesus , GOD’S son as our savior. We will still , we still we fall short. Every single soul that has walked the face of the earth in the past, now and into the future. We still need JESUS!

1 John 1:8

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.”

We need our Jesus to stand firm in our faith. There are those people who are lost soul who do not follow Jesus and are the ones who will be workers of evil doings and even realize this is what they are doing. Going about their lives with no control, making trouble for themselves and anyone else as well.

evil doers 2017

They may hate you with just seeing you for the very first time in their lives and do not really know as to why as I have mentioned before. But we need….to….stand….firm. Have faith and to keep it. You may not understand how GOD is going t work things for you. We really don’t have to know what HE is going to do. But we need to wait. All of us who have faith do, well yes you may get curious as to when and how. But we still need to walk by faith and to be around those who have faith at all times. For as believers we need to encourage one another. You don’t always know what a person is going through if they do not tell you.

And if they do, would you pray for them? Yes you would. Because of the love of Jesus in you.

I have a special woman I have known since we were kids going to school. We may have grown up and had to work and have families but we are still loving friends because we share the true love of Jesus. My friend is special to me, for outside of family I trust her to pray with and for me ans I do for her. When I told her of what I was going through, the very next thing she did was to ask me if she could pray for me! We both were in tears from the touch that we felt from GODS hands coming over us. It was…………awesome!!!

Standing firm on faith is like breathing air, we need it!

When it comes to finding a friend like my praying friend I mentioned, a spouse, a job, anything you want GOD in it, we need to pray for this. And when the wolf comes into your path you can bet a very large BEAR from GOD will come to get it away from you.

bear attacking wolf 2017

Like in the above picture, you enemy did not see it coming when GOD steps in. And HE will step in, I have seen it. The lost souls the seek to you do not. They run from GOD and avoid reading His loving words written in the Bible. To also add to that they can not understand how you figured out you knew what they were doing or planning to do to you. You may not have known about at all, GOD did.

I tell you from my heart, GOD watches over all of us who do love HIM without fail.

no-one-can-stand-against-god-67

Stand firm, for in these days and times we are living in many people do not read the Bible and do not have faith. Those that pick and choose from the Bible as to what they want from it to suit the lifestyle they want are not lovers of GOD and His son Jesus either. They do not see the trouble that they have stepped into. They will not read the word because the will not want to hear the truth.

JESUS is the way into heaven. The key. He is truth and the light. I would not want to see anyone be left behind.  I pray for all people I know to be saved. I feel the way how things are happening now a day, JESUS can arrive at any given time from here on.

And this is why I do say to stand firm in our faith, for there will always come a distraction to take our focus on the LORD. We just have to do our best to keep and stay on the path as best as with can with the help, love, patience and understanding from GOD.

Stay in prayer, read the Bible to gain wisdom and understanding of GOD and His beloved son Jesus. Read to see just how much GOD loves us.

Peace!
