The Tribe of JUDAH!

Good morning everyone! I do pray that you are having a blessed day, for this is another day that the LORD GOD has made!

As th new year is a head of us like in 4 days as it is by today’s post….I have always wondered what original tribe I was from. Hoping as we all want to think it is from good for ourselves I would like to think it was from the tribe of JUDAH.

For theses tribe from what I understand at this point in time were scattered, and lost. So they could have ended up in anyplace where they were able to travel to.

As a research as best as I can, it seems like no one really knows for sure where they went to. And maybe this is what our GOD had wanted to happen so that we would not truly know when our JESUS will return to earth to take the believers home. I can not say. For reading the word, it is not clear to me where the peoples settled.

Maybe someone who has studied the tribe more than I have can explain what they have found out and then we could look up what they have found as well.

The tribe of David is linked to the tribe of Judah and Benjamin as well. So this is the link to leading up to the birth of JESUS CHRIST.

Judah’s tribe was the largest. Introduced in the Biblical book of Genesis and in the Torah, the tribe of Judah is descended from Judah, the fourth son of Jacob and Leah. Judah was one of Jacob’s twelve sons, and was responsible in part for placing his younger, more favored brother Joseph in a pit.”

“The tribe of Judah settled in the region south of Jerusalem and in time became the most powerful and most important tribe. Not only did it produce the great kings David and Solomon but also, it was prophesied, the Messiah would come from among its members.”

Tribe of Judah. … Judah was the fourth son of Jacob and his first wife, Leah. The tribe of Judah became one of the most important because it was the tribe of the monarchy, or rulership under one royal leader, when the ancient kingdom of Israel was established around the 11th century BCE.”

“The Lion of Judah (Hebrew: אריה יהודה Aryeh Yehudah) is a Jewish national and cultural symbol, traditionally regarded as the symbol of the Israelite tribe of Judah. … The Lion of Judah is also mentioned in the Book of Revelation, as a term representing Jesus, according to Christian theology.”

“In Matthew 1:1–6 and Luke 3:31–34 of the New Testament, Jesus is described as a member of the tribe of Judah by lineage. Revelation 5:5 also mentions an apocalyptic vision of the Lion of the tribe of Judah.”

You know it is interesting information when yu read the word and also read history books as well that link up with the Bible too. Learning the culture , location and traditions of the Bible helps me to understand what was going on back then.

Even with the tools , or instruments and type of food that was eaten then. So that when we celebrate EASTER in 2020, we maybe able to actually know more abut the word and what it was like back then when our JESUS walked this earth saving us all from the sins we have fallen into.

GOD is so cool as to love us humans so that HE sent HIS son here to save us from our sins! And GOD’s beloved son so cool as to do GOD’s will , going through all of the abuse we put on JESUS and then killing HIM too. JESUS went through alot for us all.

I am so very grateful to know that JESUS has saved my soul.

I don’t know how to even begin to see by researching if I am in the tribe of JUDAH. As I have made an attempt to find out on line alone….I see there is no sure way on how to do it.

I will just wait until the LORD calls me home when it is my time , and I will be in the tribe then!

Have a blessed day, stay in prayer, pass it forward to others this blog so they can have a blessing too.

Merry Christmas!

Good morning and happy blessed Christmas day to you all!

Let us all remember to true one and only reason for Christmas. It is becasue our beloved GOD in heaven sent HIS only son JESUS to this earth to save our souls.

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)

Let us never forget our JESUS, for HE is the key to entering heaven where all of us who seek eternal peace will have it there. And this is good.

John 14:6

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

King James Version (KJV)

I need to make the Lasagna meal for tonight’s Christmas dinner. I pray that you all will have a blessed Christmas be it with our GOD, Jesus and our loved ones or with GOD and Jesus as you can not be with family and friends at this time. You are not alone or ever alone or unloved when you have a good solid relationship with GOD and Jesus the son of GOD!

Matthew 28:20

“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

King James Version (KJV)

Have a blessed , safe, peaceful and joyful Christmas! Stay in prayer, trust in the LORD not the ways of the world or mankind. Joy is in the LORD!

Peace.

John 16:13English Standard Version (ESV)

13Whenthe Spirit of truth comes,he willguide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, butwhatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.

Good morning everyone. I do pray that you all are well and warm from the cold if you live in the colder weather. Where I live it can get as cold as a single digit or below zero once in awhile.

It was like this yesterday with the single digit! But we made it through. Thank GOD for that!

Many times we all will go through something that we will raise our eyes up to the heavens and seek GOD’s help. We need HIS direction, guidance and counseling. I do know I do need GOD’s guidance at all times. Even if I feel I can make…

My Addiction to GOD and JESUS!

Good morning all, I do hope and pray you all will have a blessed day. For this is another day that the LORD GOD has made.

I hear about all kinds of addictions in this day and age. Anything from drugs, sex, food, money and anything else you and I don’t know about and shouldn’t. I don’t hear much about people talking about out JESUS.

But I will tell you I do have an addiction. It is GOD the FATHER, and HIS son Christ JESUS. Yep, full fledged addict and proud of it too! I need my fix after a good nights sleep and getting up I need to talk to GOD and JESUS. I need to feel the instant “high” I get from them. Giving me a feeling of comfort and being loved unconditionally 24/7.

I “take” a reading of the word and it gives me a “high” too. I call it a spiritual high with the combination of knowing GOD and JESUS are there with me! Here are some “Bible shots of encouragement” That can get you going all day long.

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.

Jeremiah 17:14 – Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou [art] my praise.

Jeremiah 33:6 – Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.

1 Peter 2:24 – Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Isaiah 53:5 – But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

James 5:15 – And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

Psalms 103:2-4 – Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:   (Read More…)

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:

3 John 1:2 – Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

James 5:16 – Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Psalms 41:3 – The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.

Psalms 147:3 – He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

Matthew 10:1 – And when he had called unto [him] his twelve disciples, he gave them power [against] unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Proverbs 17:22 – A merry heart doeth good [like] a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

You can if you need to , go ahead and print these out and carry them with you. Put it on your desk so you can read it with an situation comes up and you need your spirit filled up again with a shot of righteousness to get going back on track. Share it with others too.

Sometimes we can get so distracted by the ways of the world that we can get turned around. This is why we need to turn to GOD and JESUS as the first thing in the morning to have the HOLY SPIRIT as the juice to drink.

In this day and age, because JESUS is the very last one people mention i this holiday season. Many people are distracted from GOD, they will raise their children with no knowledge of GOD. Forgetting how they were raised in faith by their parents. So we have a lot of non believers walking around us these days not knowing what they are doing.

So we who DO love GOD must hand on even harder, holding on for dear life for it is our life we pray for.

Keep your addiction to the LORD, and never let it go. Ever. Our GOD keeps us strong. Our GOD is good, and all of the time.

Thank you for reading this post, share it with ours who need a boost of faith to read some scripture so they can be blessed too! Pass it forward, be blessed and never stressed!

Peace!

John 16:13 English Standard Version (ESV)

13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.

Good morning everyone. I do pray that you all are well and warm from the cold if you live in the colder weather. Where I live it can get as cold as a single digit or below zero once in awhile.

It was like this yesterday with the single digit! But we made it through. Thank GOD for that!

Many times we all will go through something that we will raise our eyes up to the heavens and seek GOD’s help. We need HIS direction, guidance and counseling. I do know I do need GOD’s guidance at all times. Even if I feel I can make it on my own unintentionally going about my day. I have to stop and think about what I am doing.

I do not want to leave GOD out of what I do for any reason, in anything that I do really. For we know that we will have to answer to all thoughts and actions we do in this life as we stand before our JESUS.

There is no sure confirmed counseling I know of that will see us through in the righteous direction that is GOD approved. Going to another human who does not have the HOLY SPIRIT in them will cause you to be distracted from GOD.

Many people who are educated counselors, psychotherapists, or physiatrists do NOT believe in GOD and are not saved. So how can an unsaved person lead you in the right direction? They can not, for the right direction is to follow the ways of GOD’s laws.

John 1:14 English Standard Version (ESV)

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son[a] from the Father, full of grace and truth.

We all need the moral teachings of our GOD to be able to stay on track with our loving GOD. If we do not we wind up off the road into the wilderness of trouble. Lost and turned round.

Picture is from the site: https://parade.com/63160/marilynvossavant/youre-lost-in-the-woods-which-direction-should-you-walk/

When you are alone like this in the wilderness, who would you call? Calling out to another person who is lost will only mean that the two of you are lost together.

John 15:26 English Standard Version (ESV)

26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me.

GOD’s words are true. GOD is not a man that HE should lie. GOD has sent a helper to me many of times. I go to the LORD GOD first with all of my concerns. And I have to wait fr the LORD to give me an answer. I so do need the LORD GOD to guide me for HE is all knowing.

I do understand that many people seek advice from other people and not our GOD. But do consider this

Let our loving GOD always lead you out of the wilderness, and back onto the path of righteousness forever.

Thank you for reading this blog, and many blessings to you as also are free to share this post. Pass it forward so others can receive the blessings and GOD’s word as well too!

Peace!!!

Anti Semitism is a sin. JESUS was a jew too!

Good morning and good day everyone. I do pray that you all are having a blessed day and that you all are well. This is another day that the LORD GOD has made.

I want to share with you all the rise of anti Semitism. It is another form of hate conceived by evil one to distract us from the LORD. And not only that to divide the peoples of the earth from bonding and having fellowship with each other.

When we do not obey or listen to our loving GOD about the warnings pf the world, meaning the dangers of listening to the devil and his lies …it casue all kinds of confusion and hate.

For our beloved JESUS who walked the face of the earth was a jew.

John 8:31-59 King James Version (KJV)

31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;

32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Anti Semitism is an example of it.

Being a jew is not a race, it is a faith called Judaism. The people read their Bible called the Tanakh from my understanding. And the people will be in all skin colors like those who are Christians are too!

African jewish women.

When I hear people say mean things about anyone I don’t like it. And to hear people say they do not like Jews are doing just what the evil one wants us to do cause all kinds of confusion and fights and wars.

“Jesus Christ was born in a particular place and at a specific time in history. Although His Father was God (through the agency of the Holy Spirit), His mother was a Jewish woman named Mary. Her husband, Joseph, was Jesus’ legal father or guardian. According to the genealogy from Mary, on His human side Christ is descended from the Israelite tribal patriarch Judah and his descendant King David (Luke 3:31Luke 3:33; compare Acts 2:302 Timothy 2:8).” from the site https://www.ucg.org/bible-study-tools/booklets/who-is-god/jesus-was-a-jew

Being a Christian because I have accepted JESUS as my savior and I follow our beloved Christ JESUS…..I do understand as to why we are called Christians. Christs believer and followers are called as such.

The jews from my understanding have not accepted our JESUS as the messiah and only a jewish teacher.

Faces of young jewish boys with their locs.

I have seen jews in all colors across the earth in photos. None are all one color. The oldest group of people are the Ethiopians who are to believes as the first jews. And even there they are different shades for brown too.

Hasidic jewish woman with her head covered

The white hasidic jew from Brooklyn New York look totally different from the jews in africa with the way how they dress, they way they believe as well too. They do still cover their heads both the men and the women, but they way how they may think to serve maybe a little different,

Hasidic jewish men.

See, to say one hates jews is wrong, for as I have mentioned… JESUS WAS A JEW.

Judaism is the 1st religion mankind practiced waiting foe JESUS to come to earth for the 1st time for our salvation.

Let us remember what season this is right now. It is the Christmas season and JESUS is the reason for the season. This season and all seasons now , when our JESUS returns and for all seasons!!!

Have a blessed day, and please do share this blog with others so they will be blessed as well. Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog post!

Peace!!!!

Witnessing for the LORD.

Good morning to you all and thank you for taking the time to read this blog.

I do pray that our beloved FATHER GOD is with you and HIS beloved son JESUS to protect and guide you through your whole life in all that you do. For the world can be mean, and our GOD can overcome that with our faith and trust in HIM.

Telling people about the good news is to encourage those who are seeking the truth about our JESUS and salvation so that they can be saved from death. I would not like anyone I know to burn in a place where our beloved GOD and HIS son is not. That is including all who hate because of the light of the LORD that is in us who love GOD and HIS son JESUS.

Talking to family, friends and new people you meet about the LORD. Photo from https://www.wakefieldccg.nhs.uk

See we can witness to others through the HOLY spirit leading us with the HOLY discernment that we will have as to who will be open to learn about the LORD. You will know who to talk to and when with the discernment because GOD is leading you.

1 Corinthians 2:14

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

King James Version (KJV)

There are some of us Christians who will go door to door to talk about the LORD and witness to those who are home and are willing to open the door to us. I do recall as a child how the Deacons of the Church would go out to save souls with the Bible in their hands. I recall Deacon Jenkins of the Baptist Church I went too as an example doing so. He was the coolest person I admired from the Church. He ALWAYS had his bible with him! A good quiet soul, never negative and a good Dad and husband to his family.

Saying this I do know that Jehovah Witnesses like to go door to door to do their witnessing. And also in public places such as bus stations and airports where numbers of people are gathered. Be aware, the teaching they follow are not correct. Some reading : https://www.christianity.com/church/denominations/10-things-everyone-should-know-about-jehovah-s-witnesses-and-their-beliefs.html

But as a true believer in JESUS CHRIST we call ourselves Christians and do our witnessing differently. Our doctrine is of the Christian KJV Bible. The JW’s will use a bible called the New Testament. It is not worded as a Christian Bible. So their thoughts on witnessing is not like that of a Christian. We can learn to witness to them lovingly about our Bible and JESUS too.

1 John 1:3

“That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.”

King James Version (KJV)

Many people who do not follow GOD and HIS loving ways were never told about HIM. They may not be all immoral in their thinking and will want to be good people. But if they do not know the LORD GOD and have accepted JESUS as their savior, they may not ever be lead to JESUS. So we must do our witnessing in a loving way.

Matthew 28:19

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”

King James Version (KJV)

She may have saved two people in this clip.

See, you do not have to be a Jehovah witness (J.W) to witness to anyone. Even though they will assume that Christians do not. We do. If they (the J.W,’s) do not go to our Churches or are in our religion, how will they know what we do? We must witness to the J.W’s as well too. They need to know about the true meaning of salvation and to be saved.

Witnessing tips and sites I have found interesting. You know what? As you read the word and spread it to others….you will learn from the word that you are lead to say to others. So witnessing is two fold.

1. https://www.revelation.co/2015/07/24/clever-ways-to-share-the-gospel-without-saying-a-word/

2.https://www.allaboutgod.com/christian-witnessing.htm

3. https://blog.biblesforamerica.org/witnessing-for-christ/

Let us think about each person we see, all people we know, and remember what salvation is. So that they will not end up in locked up for all eternity long with satan away from our beloved GOD. Let them not suffer by not telling them the truth. The devil has lied to them way long enough. Right?

Praise GOD now and for all eternity long!!!!

Have a blessed day, thank you for reading my blog and I do pray that this has encouraged you as you encourage others. Pass it forward and stay in prayer as we wait for the LORD JESUS to return!

Peace!!!!
