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! 🙂

 

Suffer little children, and forbid them not

Chridrens innocent sweet-love friendship 2018Matthew 19:14

“But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

This picture and other pictures like this remind me of when I was a child. I lived in a nice house that my Parents owns and loved it. I had kids to play with that were my favorite kids to play with outside of my favorite cousins growing up. So to me they were like an extended family.

All of my friends were church goers and came from families that prayed and stayed in prayer. Our parents all worked, Grandmothers were the best cooks we knew. And we as kids all liked the same things to play with and the same types of games too. I saw my friends for who they were and not the color thing I just thought they looked like their parents and it was not a racial thing. My friends did too.

We enjoyed looking at the clouds and would notice on a beautiful summers day how the clouds would have different shapes. Like some would look like people, dogs, or a foot. Stuff like that. We made mud pies for our doll babies, had “pretend husbands” that were actually the brothers to some of the girls I played with. My friends came from all back rounds of color , African-American, Polish, Puerto Rican, Asian, Mexican and Jamaican. All in a middle class neighborhood. Nothing that is stereotypical, just people living together none of the “you people “nonsense then when we were little.

black children and white children as friends 2018

But then as were got older, like around 7 years old…things changed. It was something that my Polish friend and I didn’t see coming. Her grandmother (who was different from the other grandmothers) moved in with her. And I could hear on a summer’s day of her complaining about me playing with her while the window was open. “She shouldn’t be out there with that child….” along with some other things. I just didn’t want to believe she was talking about me. Because those things she was saying I was was an evil lie. This woman didnt know me from Adam as the expression goes.

I told my Mom about it, and it was not good. I think my Mom, when she got the chance let them know how she felt about it. But I was never able to play with my friend again. Nor was she to play with the rest of the kids who were not white. We both cried because of that, it was awful. We didn’t understand how you can do something like that to us. She lived right next door to us, and we would see each other more than the other kids.

Racial division is something that is pure evil. It is hate with no locgical GODLY reason to back it up. It keeps people from living peacefully with each other as how GOD wants us to do. What is the point in it? To keep people from living peacably with each other. A lot of evil is done from this, as what I am saying right now as to what happened to my friend and me.

Romans 12:17-1921st Century King James Version (KJ21)

18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

Kids learn from all of this. Now I don’t know how this has affected my friend right now or how she is living her life. I don’t know if she passed this on to her children or not. But I do know that what ever was told to her about playing with other kids that are not like her just because they told her we are all bad….may be something she got used to and just dealt with it.

I know I did not change what is in me. I wanted always as far back as I could remember to be like JESUS. Have a pure love in my heart which then give you an inner sincere peace.

John 14:27 KJV

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

More verses on peace of mind and inner peace: https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Peace-Of-Mind/

When children are born, they are not thinking about color like the adults do. Yeah as a child they do see that there are people who look different. But what they are thinking about is someone to play with who is small like they are.  Color is something that elders teach the kids for what ever reason they assume is right. But it is wrong. For all hate is influenced by satan. GOD IS LOVE!!!! Satan comes to steal your joy as he did for me and the friendship of my friend as a child.

We all need to teach our kids the ways of the LORD our GOD and not the evil ways of the world. For it is destructive, leading all humans in to the pit of hell if we are not careful.

There is no such thing as race. No such thing as one being superior to the other simply because they do not look like you. Dont listen to the devil and then pass this lie on to your children. They will suffer for it and live in confusion for the rest of their lives. Simply hating all people eventually, becasue they will not love themselves too.

Matthew 22:36-40King James Version (KJV)

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

When we raise our children to hate we are committing a sin. And then we are teaching our children to sin as well….leading on to keeping this disease of hate going.  Once we all understand what GODs way is and follow it we all will be truly happier. For the devil lies to us to blind us from the truth of GOD. Stay in pray and stay close to GOD and HIS beloved son. For it is GODS heaven we want to live in, to be able to see GOD ever so lovingly smiling upon us with HIS son JESUS on HIS right hand side smiling upon us all too .

Praise and glory be to you dear beloved FATHER GOD at all times now and forever more and to all of eternity long. Thank you FATHER GOD for our savior JESUS Christ!

May you all have a blessed day and from the reading of this post, and for sharing it to others as well.

Peace!

GOD’s Truth of the devils lies, to whom will you listen to?

the lies of satan 2018

“You are not pretty”

“You are too pretty”

” You are fat”

“You are too skinny”

“We don’t like your kind…”

“You are too good.”

“You are not good enough, you are bad”

“You are not smart enough”

“How did YOU know how to do this?”

“Oh, this is not really all of that fattening, its okay to eat any kind of dessert!Calories don’t count!  Nobody gets fat from eating desserts”

“Don’t listen to the Boss, do the assignment like this as to how I am showing you. They will never know….”

“Don’t read the Bible, it is all made up by some old men years ago. None of that is true.”

“GOD doesn’t listen to prayers. Everyone is going to hell.”

“JESUS does not love you.”

“You are stupid for believing and going to church….”

“Everybody does this….(or that)”

How many times have you heard people saying thing like this and to hurt you, or keep you from doing the right thing? I have heard this and more since I was a young child and didn’t care what the non believers thought. I could see all of the trouble that they were in , had been in and were heading to again. They did not turn off of the path of trouble and destruction.

I was given the name of “goody two shoes” as a child by those who thought that was supposed to make me feel bad. But you know what, I happened to like being called that. Once they saw that I liked it they began to call me bad. Whatever will give you joy, there are just some people who prefer to do evil and to steal your joy.

I praise GOD for all of the situations that HE has kept me and all of my loved ones out of. There were always temptations in our way, and you can slip but never fall for the LORD will pick you up. It is the fact that you know you slipped up and are forgiven and given another chance because of the love that comes from GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS that we keep on going.

Whomever said sticks and stones will break bones , but words will never hurt you was not right in making up that rhyme. You will remember words that were told to you at times that cut like a knife leaving a scar. The first initial cut of the words sting and hurt goes away, but like I say it leaves a scar.

So many people have been hurt by words, and the list at the beginning I made, is just some “cuts” people say from being tempted by the evil on. See this does two things. It makes the person listen to the temptation, fall into going through with saying the mean words that the evil one put into their head. Then once spoken to the victim, the feel the hurt, and the response to the sin can go full circle depending on how the victim responds.

It could cause the person who was hurt to hurt back. A sin for sin. But who started it? The one that started the whole thing is sitting back laughing at the two humans. No he may not have made the 1st person walk over to the other with the evil intentions, but if he had left them alone there would be no confrontation and hurt feelings.

We all get people who seem to love negative drama around them at all times. But we need to stay in prayer too. Stay far away from the “sinful drama” lovers as much as possible.

1 Peter 5:8

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”

King James Version (KJV)

The evil watches the righteous to seek to destroy them at any cost. The hate that they have in them consumes them with every breath they take. Relentless and weary from no rest, they are hell bent to doing evil. But they forget who is in charge of all things. Our ever-loving GOD in heaven and the creator of all heaven and earth.

1 John 3:8

“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”

King James Version

See? The word is what makes sense and gives me a calm feeling within me. It is true the evil one was here before mankind. He saw us being created and knows our weaknesses. We all need to know the evil tempts all humans even when JESUS walked the face of the earth satan tried to tempt our JESUS into doing wrong.

Here is a link to 6 things the devil is lying about on Beliefnet.com

http://www.beliefnet.com/faiths/galleries/6-things-the-devil-will-trick-you-into-believing.aspx?   Read the list on this link for more encouragment.

1.Do not trust the enemy satan.

2.That happiness is unattainable.

3.That GOD’s word is not real.

4.are insignificant.

5.Church is not important.

6.You are insignificant .

7.Gossip does no harm and your words can not hurt.

The physical words out weight the spiritual world.

Psalms 28:7

“The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoices; and with my song will I praise him.”

King James Version (KJV)

Knowing the truth in GODS words means we need to read it. Not assume from what anyone’s word is about the word. YOU read it yourself. Get strong in your faith and trust in the LORD. Stay in prayer. These secular people who are lost in sin and love sin do not want the LORD in their lives because of that. If GOD hates sin, we do too. They know the presence of GOD walking into a room and it is within us who love the LORD. 24/7.

Ephesians 6:10-18King James Version (KJV)

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 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.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Listen to the encouragement that our loving GOD has given us all through the BIBLE! The people in the Bible times have gone through the very same sins we all go through today. The difference is the people and that we have mass technology all over the world with more people.

GOD is good, right, loving , all knowing, all present and protective of all of his children who love HIM. Remember that always. Remember that JESUS loves us so, and wants us in to heaven as well. JESUS made an awesome sacrifice for all of mankind. That is showing how much JESUS loves us too.

May a blessing be to those who read this post and be encouraged, and for sharing it to encourage others as well!

 

Peace.

Grow closer to GOD.

Grow closer to GOD 2018

James 4:8

“Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.”

 

I remember a pastor saying that (not his exact words) faith is something that has a cap or level line on it. It continues to grow through the trials that we go through each day. And we all go through something. No matter how rich or poor, location on GODS earth, what gender or skin color. There is always something but because of faith we will get through it while praising GOD for the help.

I remember as a child what I could understand about the LORD through church and family. Just how powerful GOD is with the scriptures that was read. It has shown me that good will always conquer over evil. There is no way that evil will prevail. GOD is so perfectly good, wonderful, loving and protective of all of us who do truly love HIM.  The Bible is clear on that.

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.

King James Version (KJV)

When we as humans seek to gain an understanding and the need to have GOD in our lives, it has to be developed.  We need not to lean on what we understand alone. Reading the word of GOD with prayer to HIM and knowing that JESUS is the one and only way into heaven is on the way to increasing our faith.

Don’t depend on the pastor , your parents, best friends, relatives or anyone else. Depend on your prayers to GOD to be answered with CONTINUING prayer. When you pray leave it with GOD, don’t try to think for HIM. Don’t meddle in the prayer, because then you will not see how HE is helping you to get through your situation. Leaving your burdens with the LORD, knowing that GOD sent JESUS to save the world is a great comfort. You know that you will be saved from all of the heart aches of this fallen world.

But you will need to trust in the LORD GOD, and let HIM fix it. If you could fix it you would have had the complete wisdom of not to get into a complicated situation you did not expect. Your faith will give you discernment. Such discernment like if you don’t feel comfortable going down a certain street, for not knowing there may have been a large fallen tree in that road. You would have heard your inner voice and soul warning you. Your souls connection with the LORD.

You have a connection with GOD when you have faith. And you also have a connection with all who do love GOD too, and you can sense it when you meet these people even for the very 1st time in life. There is a spiritual bond, sharing a GODLY righteous high. Discernment. You want this at all times.

With your bond with GOD the FATHER you will have a natural inner happiness that those who do not want GOD in their lives we NEVER understand and feel uncomfortable around you or even hate you for no reason. For the reason that the evil spirit that is in them is not the same GODLY one that is in you.

This is why we need to increase our faith so we can stand tall depending on GOD to protect us from all harm. When these people think they have the last laugh or feel that they have defeated you, you will see them fall from their own devices and plots.

I tell you faith is what will get you through anything you are going through right now like it has for me and all of my loved ones. You will get that swing at you but you will not fall down, with the love of JESUS returning HIS powerful swing and the enemy falling down instead.

Jesus defendng us in Ephesians 2018

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.”

King James Version (KJV)

I do trust in GOD. I do accept JESUS as my savior of my soul from all of the sins I have done my whole life long. No one is without sin, no…..one! And JESUS did say this in the Bible. If you feel that you have turned away from GOD because of the sins you have done in the past, then you need to get your faith in order. It is up to you to see that YOU have to make the choice.

JESUS gave his life on the cross so we could live in total peace knowing we are forgiven. This is part of the faith, to KNOW you are forgiven because of the sacrifice JESUS gave on the cross.

Not the hail Mary, going to church and making a presence, doing nice things for your close circle of friends, being a “spiritual” person and not making the full commitment as being a religious GOD fearing, JESUS loving person, giving large donations to charities to gain favor with GOD. You can give to charities, but not to use it to pay your way into heaven. If that were the case there would be all kinds of people paying their way into heaven. It would be worse than it is here on earth then….complete havoc.

The devil is a liar. If you feel that the sins you have done will keep you from getting into heaven he has lied to you. JESUS came to earth to save you and ALL of mankind who love , believe and trust in HIM. JESUS went through a lot of abuse , torment , pain, and to give HIS life on the cross just to prove this point! Don’t listen to the devil, he got you into the bad situation and is lying to keep you in it. Lying saying JESUS will not help you. HE has proven HE has forgiven you by what HE did on the cross. Dwelling on this earth as a man for 33 years being treated mean, abused and seeked after to be killed by the very people HE came to save from the sins they have done. Some did listen and were saved. Unfortunaly some stayed stubborn and will not be let into heaven.

JESUS is the savior for all of the world. No matter what you were told about you being too bad, it is still up to you what road you take from here on. Up to you. Gain your faith so that if you have children, spouses, parents, loved ones and friends that they will be saved too. You do not want your children to die and be sent to hell right? Well neither does our heavenly FATHER GOD want that for any of us.

I pray that this will bring a blessing to the reader of this post, and for sharing this post as well so others will be ecouraged to increase or gain their faith in GOD.

Psalms 34:17 and 34:18

psalm-34-18-largePsalms Chapter 34

17 [The righteous] cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

18 The LORD [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

There are times in this world when situations will come to test the faithful. This is a fallen world, and there are many people walk about causing situations of turmoil. Be it they know it or not. Or even care of they do or not.

They will discourage many and lead them to feel that GOD is not listening, when HE is. HE does hear us and does see what is going on. We need to lean on HIM and not of our own understanding of what is going on in front of us. As humans we can not see the whole picture of things and do not have the wisdom or physical capacity to do so. So this is where our faith is tested and it will pull us through as it grows.

We do not have to worry about what we may “think” our enemy will do or is doing and how it will affect us. Yes you will hear people say evil things about you or what they will do to you. And even try to gang up on you with their friends and fellow evil doers. They are lied to and are led to do evil through the father of all lies and stories. They will use his age-old tactics to bring you down. Make you feel like you have no hope, no one loves you, or you have no friends. That you are all alone with no hope. But his is a solid lie. Remember FATHER GOD is a friend to all who love HIM and so is HIS son JESUS. They are believers bestest friends ever!!!

Evil is evil, a lie is a lie, fake is fake and the evil one will come at you and everyone else here on this earth to distract us from the truth that comes from our heavenly FATHER GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS.

Those that are lost and may think they have great power in politics, business and even on Churches if they are not right with GOD they will have to answer to HIM. Just like the rest of us. They will act as though they are GOD, they have no faith in HIM and feel they can do what ever they please because they were not caught in the evil they do and punished. That no bolt of lightning has come down from the sky to strike them down…yet. They are cocky and mean to everyone that is in their circle.

If you work with people like this they can harass you all day long make you hate your job and feel like you are walking around with a heavy burden. But see when you get like this your faith light or battery I should say is in trouble, your faith battery needs to be charged with the HOLY SPIRIT so you can be strong and make it through what they enemy is trying to throw at you to knock you down.

Here is where the word of GOD can get you going again fully charged and rearing to go!

Ephesians 6:10-18 (KJV)

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 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.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

I know many of us will go through things right after we have been in Church as have heard an encouraging message from the Pastor. It made you feel warm and happy with the feeling that you have been touched by the LORD. And as you are driving home with your family down the road still glowing from the feeling you recieved in church, a driver cuts you off and gives you the middle finger while cussing at you.
That is the evil one trying to steal your joy you are feeling and put anger in your heart and even to hate that person that drove past you like that. But just remember that is not from the LORD and you are on the right tract to total salvation. Your faith is increasing and the evil one is trying to decrease it. Keep your peace and just move on.
The evil one is very cunning, and was there when all of mankind was created and knows our flaws. For we are souls with flesh, not flesh with a soul. The souls with in us is where the faith stems from, and the flesh is weak and has to be in check every second of the day. We can not do this alone to get saved on our own, so this is why we all need JESUS. JESUS is the key to heavens gate, and our leader to the path of righteousness.
No matter what age you are in right now reading this. I know if you are a child going to school at home on vacation you too have met up with kids in school that have been very mean to you and seek to fight you. But these kids are lost souls too. They need the LORD, and maybe they are not taught anything about salvation and the love of JESUS.
When you are an adult in an office with co-workers. They are the same evil but at a different age with a different face. They seek to fight too, or even get you fired so you will not have a means to take care of your self, pay your bills and have a place to stay. Pure evil intentios from these people. But just be aware that with the GOD we serve, HE will not leave us in the hands of the evil one to suffer. Nope. He will protect us for it is in HIS word.
   Psalm 37King James Version (KJV)

37 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.

13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.

14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous.

18 The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.

22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.

24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.

25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

28 For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.

30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.

33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.

34 Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.

35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.

38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.

39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the Lord: he is their strength in the time of trouble.

40 And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

These words that GOD says in the Bible will encourage us. The people back in the Bible times went through the same things you and I are going right this very minute. I do so love reading the word of GOD for I feel like HE is talking directly to me. Giving me the comfort that I need 24/7. We need to stay in prayer so that we can hear the encouragement that GOD is trying to give to us.

If you are ill, stay in prayer and let GOD into your heart and stay with you and don’t give up. And praise HIM now, and after when you are healed too!

If you are jobless, stay in pray and let GOD lead you to where you need to be, you never know what beautiful plan HE has for you to get the job you need and will love.

So whatever situation you are in, stay in prayer. Keep your faith. Trust in the LORD 24/7. Dont …..give…..up!!!

If you are harassed in the work place, church, school, or walking down the street just minding you own business…stay in prayer and know that all negative things are not from GOD. They are lies coming from he evil one.

Pray for wisdom, discernment, protection, faith, healing, safety not only for yourself but for all of your family and loved ones too. Pray for your enemies to be saved, you maybe the only one here on earth that will pray for them.

May you all have a blessed, happy, and healthy New Year 2018!

Peace!

The Blessing of Christ.

The pope praying to a Black Madonna and Child 2017

 

You know that the celebration of JESUS coming to earth will be done tomorrow on the 25th of December 2017. It is a holy day where those of us who know the real meaning of Christmas will honor it. It is like saying to the world , yes I have accepted JESUS as my savior. That I am grateful to GOD that He did send His son JESUS to save the world from the nonsense and sins we have all done all of our lives.

Many feel that this is commercialized and that is why they do not celebrate this holy day. But then if you are around these people long enough to understand that they have spent most of their money , time and effort on Halloween.  And this is not a good mindset to have, because it is Halloween that is the commercial holiday that celebrates darkness, evil, and death. Generally this celebration many do not see how evil it is right now because they will do all they want to do while doing works of evil. They got away with what they do, no bolt of lightening had struck at them from the sky sorta thing.

It is so good that we have an understanding , patient and loving GOD. For he knows who will listen and follow HIM and HIS son as best as we can. We can not do all of this alone with out JESUS. And this is why we joyfully celebrate the coming of our savior!

Black navitity scene 2017

Luke 2King James Version (KJV)

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.

18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

 

 

.Navitity 2017

 

 

Thank you FATHER GOD for JESUS at all times now and forever and for all of eternity long!

Christmas is the celebration of the savior of all mankind who have faith and love GOD and his son JESUS, life from the sacrifice from JESUS, GODS son coming to save all of mankind from our sins, HIS light, and all that is good from heaven above.

The things we do in the celebration such as reading the chapters in the Bible in the new testament that will speak of the nights and days before JESUS being born to Mary is awesome . When you think about all that Joseph and Mary went through during the labor, and where he was born. The conditions were not the cleanest at all from what it is told in scripture. Born where the animals would be, and if any of you know what a barn smells like then you can imagine what was going on.

JESUS went through a lot to save the souls of all of mankind from day one of birth. And then, imagine growing up in this world of sinners all around you. Being an adult finally and being accused of things that He did not do. The put to death in a horrible way after being beaten and stabbed too. All for the love of mankind.

I can not understand why people turn away from what is good, loving, peaceful and who would DIE for you. And you know what? People still abuse, and disrespect JESUS to this day. Saying such awful things, and these people are the ones who will not pick a Bible up to read it and see just how much GOD so loved this world. HE gave his only begotten son, to show us just that?

Many of us listen, and many of us mock HIM. But in the end every knee shall bow. They will see JESUS’s face, and maybe remember they will remember you or I saying what we know as lovingly as we know how to save them from being turned away from heaven and coming inside to meet the face of GOD.

Every single person I have met in my life, be it those who did evil againist me for what ever reason, I do pray that they will see the light. That the light from the LORD will shine on them and make it clear to them, and choose to be saved and follow JESUS. For JESUS is the key to the Kingdom.

Not doing good deeds to your friends or people you know or even don’t know. Not saying I believe in GOD and proceed to do what ever you choose in life that is not of GOD. The ways of GOD will get you into heaven. Not the ways of the world.

If you feel you have done things that you are ashamed of and that GOD can not forgive you, you need to think about JESUS. This is why we all need JESUS to b saved from all of the sins we have done our whole lives long.

This is why it is good to read the scripture, and not just take my word for it.

This is why I celebrate Christmas to say to JESUS thank you for coming to earth to save my soul from all of the sins I have done my whole life long.

It is not a commercialized day if you don’t make it as such. Just remember the true reason for the season. The birth of JESUS coming to earth as a little baby. No santa claus, no frosty the snowman, no snoopy , idols or what ever. It is about being saved from our sins through the sacrifice of the cross that JESUS bore.

You would not want your birthday celebrated without you involved in it would you? Then we should not do that to JESUS either. And he is more important than us humans or anything else of the world by a very, very, very long shot.

Yes giving gifts is cool to give to each other as it was done as how it was for JESUS. Not to buy the best and what cost the most, but what comes from the heart. Just like how the wise men did for JESUS. PLease still keep in mind it is the day of our LORD.

I pray that you all will have a blessed Christmas day and giving thanks to GOD for sending HIS only begotten son to save us all who do believe and love HIM and HIS son.

It is so comforting to know just how much we are loved.

Many blessings to the readers of this post and for those who pass and share this post to others.

 

Peace!

My comfort zone is in the LORD GOD.

The ten commandments 2017 2

Ten Commandments monument located in Goshen, Ohio

 

Everyone has a comfort zone in their lives. Something that they hold close to their heart at all times. People who love the world and the ways that the world lives and abides by and those of us who are Christians and do truly love the LORD GOD. Left and right, or up and down, we people choose as to how we want to live.

There are formulas, recipes, instruction books, manuals, and guide tools for every single thing you can think of in this world.  I do mean everything  for non-Christian things and secular things as well. But the one that is the most important guide tool to have in life is the Bible and what is in it. In the Bible you will find the ingredients for a healthy happy life . What the commandments mean to me.

The Ten Commandments.

1 Thou shall have no other gods before me.

This is where we do not pray or put the one and only true living GOD aside and worship anything or anyone other than HIM. Our GOD in heaven. What’s the point? If you seek to get into heaven where you can see GOD eye to eye, why worship anything else?

Thou shall not make for yourself any grave image.

Like Aaron did back in his time making a golden calf to bow down to, worship it and love it. This was made by mankind. That alone will tell you it is not right. No statues of people from in the Bible, or animals, or people not in the Bible. It is not logical to me to do so. Since when as a child I played with dolls. These dolls will not love you back talk to you or think and breathe life. So in comparison, these objects I see some people praying to wont either. The one and only true loving GOD of all heaven and earth will.

Thou shall not take the name of the LORD thy GOD in vain.

Well here is the thing, if you do not have faith in GOD you will say what you want. Maybe even more if you see people who do believe in GOD around as though to show them your disrespect to their faith in GOD and GOD as well.  It shows the people who do have faith that you are doing something that is not very wise to do. You will understand in a way you did not expect to. For it is written that every knee shall bow!

Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy.

Well there are many people who choose to make Saturday their Sabbath day and not the Traditional Sunday. When before JESUS was named the Christ and savior of all mankind, as a child growing up he practiced Jewish traditions. And that was to worship on Saturday. But then when we as CHRISTians that followed JESUS CHRIST we use Sunday as the holy day. For by the calendar I use Sunday is the 7th day of the week.

Some Pastors explained from the understanding of reading the word that the Sabbath was a day of rest made for mankind. And this is according to scripture. “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath” (Mark 2:27). This is something that is debatable until we do read the word o GOD. What did JESUS say? In order to know we can read the new testament.

Here is a link to some more info to get started. http://biblelight.net/cbn-sabbath.htm

Honor thy mother and thy father.

I do not call another female my Mother. Period. No other female deserves that respect and honor from me. Nor any earthly man as to be my earthly dad given the same respect. Period. This is me. I see other people will say…”this is my second Mother”. Putting the other woman on an equal level as their natural real Mother.  I can see if a person will say “She has been like a Mother to me for all of the love and help she did for me”. But no, I cannot put woman or man before my Mother or Dad on an equal level.

And I do know there are people who are adopted and don’t know their parents or in other situations. They are your Mother and Father now and are your new blessings. When you have good parents that took care of you and loved you more than they loved themselves, you give them the honor at all times. You will be blessed with a long , happy, healthy life according to what the scripture reads. “12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.”

Cool, see how GOD will bless us even more after having good parents? Awesome!!!! For my Grandma, Mother and aunt are strong GOD loving women who took care of me as a child even before they had to do things for themselves. Thank you FATHER GOD for my parents and elders who love me.

Thou shall not kill.

I can see people saying that in self-defence it is different for they had no other way to handle an attack. But GOD said not to kill. Romans 12:19 “Dearly beloved , avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine ; I will repay, saith the Lord”

Thou shall not commit adultery.

See many people looks like today see nothing wrong with this. And when they have this mindset, they assume everyone else is doing this so it doesn’t matter. They will see everyone does it. This is not accurate for there is no way in the world that these people do know what everyone is or is not doing.

It is not just the actual touching a person, it is the thoughts, and looking at a person and thinking of the sexual desires for this person or persons they are drowning in. Porn in any media realm, secular music, famous people be it in show business , church work, or politics . You will find people who are openly admitting to adultery as though they were talking about how they bake a cake. It is nothing to them.

See the current news of all of the men that are caught doing sexual misconduct right from movie stars , politics and churches! PORN is the basis for these sexual addictions! Keep it out of your life and your house away from your children at all times. It is a corruptible evil poison to the mind.

But exposing the youth to this mental addiction is something they will have to deal with their whole life long. They will be a burden to many or annoying with this addiction they will have being exposed to porn and other sexual perversions wherever they go.

They will bring this addiction into any relationship they are in. Marriage will be poisoned and they will always be looking at other people and lusting after them. If they will not stop, it ill break up their family because they put the addiction before GOD, family and taking care of the family.

Thou shall not steal.

We all know about stealing, be it white-collar wall street to petty stealing of candy a child will do. It does not matter who does it , where, or why. We need not to do it. There are some who do this because they want to just eat a meal because they are starving, and only GOD as it is written can be the judge of this and anything else we all do.

Thou shall not bear false witness.

Gossiping, saying things that are stereotypically incorrect about people who you do not know who don’t look like you, spreading rumors out of spiteful means, trying to lie on a person to get them into trouble over something they did not do. What ever, If you are doing this to cause intentional harm and you know that is what you are seeking to do….well then you just bared false witness.

We all have to be careful of what we say and do to each other. We can bear false witness on  person when we lean our own understandings with GOOD intentions. So this is something to think about when we all speak of others.

Thou shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor.

covet

[kuhv-it] /
 1. to desire wrongfully, inordinately, or without due regard for the rights of others:
to covet another’s property.
This applies to anything that is your neighbors really. Anything, the wife, kids, house, dog, cat, money or car. If you want to have it and you don’t own it. Stay clear of watching what others are doing and getting yourself caught up into what they have and pay attention to the blessings that GOD has given you and is trying to get your attention so HE can keep giving you a blessing. Focus on the LORD, turn your eyes and mind on the LORD GOD 1st and foremost at ALL times. This will keep your mind-set on the path YOU are given to walk by GOD.
We all need JESUS to get through the guide tools of life.
None of us are without sin and are perfect. None. JESUS said so. This is why I need JESUS and you as well. These commandments are hard to do alone because there are many temptations out there. Some people will hear about you being a child of GOD and will watch you to see you make a mistake and say “I knew you were not a real Christian” . Testing you, and not really understanding what is going on at all because they do not read the Bible. Judging you and I by what the world understands. They see you get angry and will make a judgement. But GOD will get angry as well as HIS son JESUS over what is done to all of his people.

 

If they read the BIBLE they would understand this. GOD hates sin, not the people. The sin.

We all need JESUS because we all are sinners. The Ten Commandments are what will put us all in a wonderful comfort zone of peace. You know you are doing your best to please GOD and to say you accepted JESUS as your savior.

I do pray that all who are not saved will be saved from reading this post. because if you have a computer and even reading this off of your phone….here is more scripture you can read to give your more comfort. Here is the link to Exodus chapter 20. I would read the whole chapter so you are not getting this out of context.

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

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.
