Envying will lead to evil.

http://candelariasilva.com/envy-or-not-i-say-not/

Good morning all! I do pray that you all will have a blessed day!

As we who love the LORD GOD and have accepted GOD’s son as our saviour of our very souls….we all need to give our “brothers and sisters in the LORD encouragement at all times. For we all need a kind word from those who have GOD in their heart! This is why I am doing this post today. To encourage those of us who love the LORD.

There are many people who will go out of their way to do evil to those of us who love GOD and HIS son JESUS just because of the hate that they have in their heart. Many don’t know what they are doing and many do. And they will do this evil without caing of the consequences.

People will envy another so that each time they lay eyes on the victim, they feel the need to get even. As though the person they envy has hurt them. The Bible is very clear about this sort of thing called envy.

James 3:16

“For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.”

When a person is jealous of another persons life they are not living their own life that GOD gave them. They persistently watching those who they feel are doing better than they are. Causing all kinds of trouble for themselves and the person to whom they are envious of. All because the envious person was not in the right mind and relationship with GOD.

It is not your fault about how they feel about you. They are the ones who will have to answer to GOD for what they do to you.

1 Peter Chapter 2

1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,

What we who love GOD go through dealing with unsaved people is not an easy task to get through. And we need JESUS to do so. Just like our enemies do,they need JESUS. And as well to accept JESUS in their heart. We all have souls and the flesh is weak and needing to have perfect guidance from our JESUS.

No way can any of us mankind fight off this spiritual battle alone between good and evil. JESUS had to come to earth the save us all. I have heard many people say that they have sinned too bad for GOD to save them. But GOD is very patient, and is giving you a chance to repent from the sins you are in. You are still alive today to read this, so this is another chance to repent and be saved.

Forget about what success you see others have, you don’t know how they got it. It could have been through doing evil things , you don’t know or have to. What GOD has for you is for you. Listen to GOD, and pay attention to your own life for GOD maybe trying to give you a blessing and you may miss it turning your head to see what others are doing with envy.

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

King James Version (KJV)

Have a blessed day in the LORD GOD, thank GOD for JESUS . Share this blog with others and give GOD thanks for all that you have.

Peace.

Bible Tracts to encourage.

Getting my ideas together for a tract for Ephesians armor of GOD.

Hello everyone! I do pray that you all will have a blessed day! For this is another day that the LORD has made! YAY!

You know, I maybe an oddball to a lot of people just because I love GOD! But this is my choice to do so….and it makes be happier than anything else in the world as to believe in GOD and follow JESUS!

There are many people who love GOD so, and his beloved son JESUS that we want to share the joy! And some people through the loving word of GOD or in actions of caring. Some of us through illustrations. and Bible tracts. I do both. And what I have always liked was those #Jack Chick bible tracts. I liked the drawings, and the message. I was direct and to the point. As a child riding the subway with my parents there were people handing out these tracts. They are like little comic books….but not really comical. They were meant to lead people to the LORD and be saved.

Yes they were scary, but they are only scary if you do not know the LORD yet. And hated messages if you love the sin you are in, and not the LORD.

https://www.chick.com/information/article?id=how-to-witness&gclid=CjwKCAjwlovtBRBrEiwAG3XJ–cGOp8DvB8DFahJrqxjW3hioqdZFUU91rqbmEhoLENCPuC9JXHTbRoCVT8QAvD_BwE

But I was never able to keep one. I would take it to school or home and it would be worn out and lost .

Seeing how some people who did not like the Jack Chick.com tracts and I did, I wanted to know why they felt the way they did. They felt as though they were being condemned by those who felt they were “holier than thou.”

And I get that too. They are very direct and preach hard about heaven and hell through situations in life. But no one I know likes to be yelled at and having their finger wagging at them. That includes me. I have met women who felt I should not wear pants made for women (even on a cold day under a dress), or make-up to be well groomed, fashionable modest clothing So yeah. I have had my share of those types of Christians judging me too.

I want to show the love of JESUS in my tracts I am working on. I will share them with you once I am able to somehow save them in a PDF file. I feel I need to spread the love a JESUS in a way that is not pointing the finger , using scare tactics and yelling.

Drawings and more drawings. You know you have to be able to fit the drawing and the scripture on to one sheet of paper. and that can get tricky. You do not want the images or words to be cut off when working on the tract.

The first idea or design always takes me longer to do because it is an adjustment period. Re-figuring how things need to be. And always with the thought that you are doing this with our GOD in mind.

Before adding more detail to drawing.

As I get to the point where i will add some color, I will then need to be able to show you all the finished product of encouragement . It takes me longer than some others. I do have a full time job and other projects I do. So be patient and you will see the finished tract. I might not add color as how I see Jack Chick did not to his. I have to give it thoughtful prayer!

Have a blessed day. Stay in prayer! Avoid negative people who aim to disrespect you in all ways possible. They are distractions from keeping your eyes on the LORD.

Peace!

Photo is from ://www1.cbn.com/banning-halloween

At this link read what concerns they are sharing too.

According to GOOGLE search

“Where did the origin of Halloween come from?
Ancient Origins of Halloween. Halloween’s origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-in). The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1.”

This is something a Christian should pass on, for those who celebrate usaually are not celebrating the LORD GOD creator of all heaven and earth. Just because it is popular , you see all of the people in your circle doing this , and it is fun does not mean it is right. It is not giving honor and glory to GOD and HIS son JESUS.
Wiccans celebrate this day on October 31st of each year. Origially Halloween was called “The festival of Samhain”
There are articles on this subject of wiccans at this link:
According to GOOGLE search:
“Why Halloween is created?
Hansen: The practices of Halloween mostly come from Celtic paganism in the British Isles, and their feast of Samhain, the new year. They believed it was the time when ghosts and spirits came out to haunt, and the Celts would appease the spirits by giving them treats”
This is why children are tempted with candy and treats. To have their minds set to celebrating this day. Dressing up into costumes of dead things and people. This is a cultish type thing that is done to turn distract people from whom we all are to give glory and honor to. GOD , the one and only true living GOD and creator of all heaven and earth. Period.
According to GOOGLE search:
“How did Halloween start and why?
The history of Halloween – how it all started. Halloween began as the festival of Samhain. It was part of the ancient Celtic religion in Britain and other parts of Europe. At the end of summer, the Celts thought the barrier between our world and the world of ghosts and spirits got really thin”
Have you noticed that there are less and less movies and themes of who we really should be giving honor to? Meaning our heavenly Father GOD and to give thanks to His son JESUS on TV, or the movies as it has been 30 years ago….20 years ago or even ten? Why you see more and more the push of this day 10/31 being pushed so? I see more and more people into that and happy to spend hundreds of dollars on that and then complain about Christmas being commercialized and all about gifts. But are quite content to honor a wiccan holiday spending more than they would on the celebration of JESUS coming to earth the save all of mankind from sins we ALL have done.
Listening to the radio, at work and what the people do and say for the 10/31 celebration that they are planning on is really like they are spending all of their money. time and talk about it. The costumes, food, parties, drinking, and whatever else they can think of dong for that day 10/31 as compared to when Christmas comes.
This is what I hear some people say about the celebration of Christmas.
“Oh I don’t do much on that day. We don’t give gifts. We just sit around and eat and see each other who we see once a year. Christmas is so commercialized and I hate that.”
“Oh I don’t look forward to that. My family is dysfunctional. We argue and don’t get along on that day and I hate to see it coming. “
“It’s just for the kids. And we give gifts for them and once its opened and all they break them all before the end of the day. Then you have all of this paper and trash to get rid of. The meal you spend hours or days to make goes in 10 seconds. And no one wants to help to clean up.”
We complain and take the joy right out of the day of Christmas and as Christians we should not do this. We should be happy that JESUS came as the way to life and love, the key to the kingdom as what my Grandmother would say.
What I hear secular people say about Halloween.
“Oh man we had a great time, those drinks were awesome. I got so was wasted…..”
“Some female got my number and was saying we did all this crazy stuff at the party and said I was ok with it and wanted to do that again next weekend! I don’t remember her at all. I mean I was pretty wasted at the time…..”
I could go on, but I am quite sure that you all have heard more, and worse and so therefore you see my point. They took joy in the celebration of the pagan wiccan day.
We should praise GOD and give thanks to HIM. Putting no other gods before HIM.

Deuteronomy 6:5

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

Luke 4:8

“And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

Scripture is very clear about who we are to serve. Satan and his deeds and fallen angels were kicked out of heaven. So, why would he want us mankind to have what his does not have? He was around when GOD created us, and know our weakness of the fleash. So he will play on it and try to tempt us to do things against our beloved GOD and HIS son JESUS at any time. Satan hates us all even those who openly follow him like the people in this article who celebrate “all souls day”. We need to know some things before we get so involved in them we are sorry. And this is why I am warning you. This is about your soul and mine to be saved from learks roaming around in the world to steal our joy. Our true joy is in the connection we with GOD and HIS son JESUS. So beware of all things, pray for discernment from the LORD.

This site is not GODLY. But I post it to show you that Halloween is not for Christians at all.

The Pagans Path

http://www.paganspath.com/magik/samhain-history.htm

Keep your faith and stay in prayer.

The reason I am taking the time to tell you all about Halloween is because it is not a good thing to do if you are a follower of Christ and want your soul to be in heaven when it is your time to die. We want our savoir to lead us home into enternal peace, pure love, pure joy and to kneel before GOD and see his heavenly face. Praise GOD almighty now and forever and for all of eternity long!

Exodus 34:14

“For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:”

God loves us so HE gave his only begotten son to be our savoir of our souls. Our key to heavens door. We don’t have to do good deeds or favors to get into heaven. JESUS paid it in full. Why would you want to worship anyone else but GOD?

Worship only GOD.

http://www.bible.ca/interactive/worship-8-god-alone.htm

There are many good points here on this site that I have mentioned before and with scripture so you can refer to them in your Bible.

I am going to lose with this scripture. If you are not putting GOD into the celebration or giving thanks to him…then it is not right. You can give a praise party to GOD and dress up in your best clothes like a evening out reading scripture and giving candy to the children. Giving Bibles or other GODLY reading material at this party. And you can do so on 10/31 just so you are not involved in the demonic parts of that day. Make it a celebration to GOD.

Matthew 4:10

“Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

King James Version (KJV)

Be blessed and never stressed.

Peace.

The Sketchbook Project #14 at the Brooklyn Art Library in New York.

Let GOD Lead You.

Wanting to try something different, this came to my attention from my child who loves to draw as much as  I do. This was fun to do making the theme plain and simple , let GOD lead you. I knew not many people would think to look into it from a secular organization. I did this for GOD, and not for me. I pray that anyone who will look at it will see there is one of us christians out there that will defiantly be proud to let it be known they love GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS.

More people have looked at it than I have expected though. But it is what GOD let happen to have those few have a seed planted. I had made the book to be digitalized so may can see it online at this link below….

FASST Fine Arts Society Of The Southern Tier

Good morning or whatever time it is during the day for you all! I do pray you will all have a blessed day!

Being a Christian is hard work when you want to do what is right. Being a Christian artist is more of a challenge because many artists I meet in conversation are secular and do not have the same thoughts as I do. And when I meet one like in the organization I am a member of, it is like a breath of fresh air!

In the area mall the Fine Arts Society of the Southern Tier aka “FASST” I met up with Barbara and her brother Douglas as they were in the FASST store front as it were their turn to manage the store. As it turns out, she and her husband have a ministry as well!

She is an artist along with her brother and this was good to know. Not all of us artists feel we need to leave GOD out of our lives , and in this world when you want to do clean hearted drawings, it will make those who want to draw things not worth repeating.

People fascinate me because I care about their souls. I draw tracts, Biblical themes , portraits and couples. I do draw still life, but I would rather take photos of flowers to get the full impact of the color of how it is. That’s how I feel about it right now for what I draw, for I maybe led by the HOLY SPIRIT to draw something else.

I do love to enter my drawings in art events. These pictures you see are from last months showing in the FASST art gallery in Binghamton.

Native american man drawn from a photo. I prefer to draw from a photo so I can take my time drawing the subject.

Artwork was in one of the local newspapers too.

Always stay humble while sharing your work. I hope I always will be. My husband and other people say I am and that is good. Once you think you are better than others that’s when you are shown you are wrong. I strive to be good and better than I was the last time I drew anything. I draw better from realife and Photos. I am able to take my time and pay attention to the lines of the subject. For when I do quick sketches it will be for children’s books like I have done for the Brooklyn Arts Sketchbook Project. That will be in another blog with those pictures.

Here is a video of the lastest Art Gallery showing.

Very short video made of the Art Gallery showing for August 2019 to September 2019.

Once I become known in GODS timing I will be able to make a living from it as GOD sees fit. So with that being said, I am not there yet. But I will not give up for I depend on GOD to lead the way.

Ephesians 6:11

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

King James Version (KJV)

That’s what we need to do when we need to get through the nonsense of the world. I pray that in all I do, any blog post I do will encourage others to do GOD’s will in all that you do. For by faith is how we walk, with GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS giving a loving guidance at all times.

Peace!

Hallow means sacred.

Good morning to you all , I do pray that you all are well!

This is a new month going into a new season of life that our GOD has given us all. A new chance to be right with GOD and accept our JESUS as the saviour of all mankind. To break those chains of sin through accepting JESUS as the way to heaven! Yay!!!!

Also it is the time when the leaves change and turn from a beautiful green to all of the autumn colors which are equally as beautiful! The plants will now begin to go asleep under a blanket of snow until the LORD wakes them up for spring to greet us with their new colors of life.

Many people love the cooler weather more so than the warmer, but I do love both because it gives you a chance to love both worlds. But what concerns me is the what people who do not understand that holiday that many choose to celebrate is not a good one to follow considering what it stands for.

hal·low/ˈhalō/verb

  1. honor as holy.”the Ganges is hallowed as a sacred, cleansing river
  2. To hallow is “to make holy or sacred, to sanctify or consecrate, to venerate”. The adjective form hallowed, as used in The Lord’s Prayer, means holy, consecrated, sacred, or revered. The noun form hallow, as used in Hallowtide, is a synonym of the word saint.

As a person that truly loves GOD and his son JESUS, I do not want to see anyone, and I mean anyone perish from being confused at what the evil one has been telling them for years. Thinking that there is nothing wrong with this celebration on the last day of October. It is a pagan holiday that witches celebrate. In these days it is covered up with candy and making dressing up as demons cute. In the mindset that because children love candy , we can teach them that nothing is wrong with halloween.

Training your children to celebrate a pagan holiday that will WEEN/WEAN your child away from the Christian way of life. See this is what I see when I see the word halloween.

HALLOW meaning scared. Our GOD in heaven is sacred and all that is there, His son JESUS and all he has done to save souls of all mankind who do believe in HIM. WEEN/WEAN means to being accustomed (someone such as our GOD and JESUS) to managing without something on which they have become dependent or of which they have become excessively fond. So when you put the 2 words together alone that is not a good thing. It should make you feel uncomfortable to even be around such things.

When you are a child, you see candy, fun and parties that you are invited to, going door to door to your neighbors for treats, wearing costumes of your favorite cartoon characters and then coming home and eating the candy apples and candy! Wow did you have fun then and the rewards that went alone with it too!

If you have not grown in faith, then you still will celebrate the holiday with going out to bars or parties for drinks to have your fun as an adult. Not seeing that this is wrong because you are having fun and you love it. But that’s the hook. The hook is the candy as a child and to keep it going drinks with confusion as an adult with your friends.

Those who do not celebrate the holiday are considered as looney because they don’t know what they are talking about. But we do my friends. This is a serious game to be played when you “wean” yourself from our ever loving GOD.

Research for yourself to see what halloween really is, where it began, and WHY. Your soul , your babies, family and all people you know and love are at stake. Even those you know in passing and do not know. Every single soul.

MY BIRTHDAY POEM

PEACEMAKERS

Just to be clear, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with singing Happy Birthday on any day of the week. But recently it was my birthday on the Lord’s day, and the Lord blessed me with this poem, a reflection of how I was feeling.

MY BIRTHDAY POEM

I’ld rather sing to Jesus,

Than you sing a song to me.

Back in ninteen eighty eight,

My Lord Jesus set me free.

It’s Him I want to honor,

Because He created me,

Three score and ten a milestone,

Many years upon this earth,

But my true celebration,

Is the day of my new birth.

So let us sing to Jesus,

Singing praises to His name,

Who saved me from damnation,

And a life of sin and shame.

Let’s praise Him all together,
