Psalms 115:1

Psalms 115 verse 1 2018

You know what? When we praise our one and only true living God for all that He does for us it will may take all day. Our list will be long even in times of trouble when you are able to pull yourself through it. Seriously!

See when you keep your mind on the LORD in the midst of a storm even, you are can still give HIM the praise. You will see what you went through and know it is because GOD is with you, you were able to sail through it.

Praise GOD to be able to get up and see another day, have a roof over your head, food to eat when you are hungry, be able to help those when they can not, praise GOD to others for the blessings He did give to you, be able to talk with your voice for many have no voice at all, be able to see for many can not see at all. I can go on and on about praising GOD and being thankful that He sent His beloved son here on this earth to save us from all of the sins we have done our whole lives long.

There are many people out there with health/money/family issues you can see and can not see. No one person is perfect. Not one. Or ever will be. If you have ever been injured or was born with an issue of some type of health problem, just know none of us can say we are perfect. Some people are stronger in their mind more so than others and will smile every time you see them. Like those who have downs syndrome. I personally have never met one who was ever mean to me. Ever. It’s like they are a special blessing when I see one who will give me a smile when I need it or a hug. They are really cool people. Beautiful inside and out.

Being crippled did not stop Mephibosheth from having servants and fathering 2 sons. He sat at King David’s table and ate with him as one of the Kings sons. Mephibosheth was crippled from injury at age 5 according to the Bible.  He had what some may call a disability. That did not stop him from being a man of faith.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mephibosheth

This is a learning experience with those who can keep a smile as they do. You may see they them as having a struggle. You may think they are not happy, but they have the same kinds of issues we do. Getting up going to work, wanting to get married, paying taxes, doctors appointments, keeping food on the table and paying bills.

I am saying all of this as to up lift each of us. We need to stay away as much as we can from negative people and thoughts. It is not easy because of the flesh and may slip for trying. But once we get in to habit of finding a peaceful place to be, even at work or school where you can have your solitude away from worldly non sense….you are doing good. Even if you need to spend time alone, so you can have clean thoughts and focus on the LORD and pray or just use your time to listen to Gospel music or Christian music that will give you a soothing peace. You need to feed your soul with good thoughts. Be around like-minded people for they want the same things you do. They mission is to be right with GOD and have accepted JESUS as their savior to get into heaven where all perfect love and peace is.

Ahhh!  To think about what JESUS has prepared for us in heaven is so wonderful. No more hate, no more pain, no more disabilities, no more non-sense of any kind and the freedom to love and praise GOD and His son JESUS all day long.

And another thing, when you are focusing your thoughts on scripture that alone can give you the peace you need. The men and women of the Bible and the situations that they had to go through are the same things we go through right now today. The only difference is , is that they were living that then and we are living it now with the technology we have today.

 

Deuteronomy 28 verse 1 2018

Praise GOD at all times. Here is some more scripture to read on this link for you. It is a link for “King James Bible online”

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Praising-God/

If we sit down and write down all of the things we are blessed to have right now and what GOD has done, I will say you will be writing for some time. Let us all give thanks to our Holy loving perfect FATHER GOD and for His beloved son JESUS every single day! GOD is so cool! And His son is like His Father too!

Psalm 150 King James Version (KJV)

150 Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.

Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.

Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.

Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.

Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.

King James Version 
May all who read this and my other posts of praise be blessed and for those who share it as well. May they all give you the encouragement you need to make it through the day! Be safe and be blessed!

Give a Praise Party for GOD!

Taco-Dinner-2

As the warmer weather approaches I will hear about the parties some people are planning or have gone to. If you are on the check out line in a grocery store, these things are a common conversation with some and their peers. It’s like you are trapped into hearing this sort of thing from just wanting to get some milk and eggs for your family.

I was wondering how many people would come to a party where we all would just want to praise GOD for all of the blessings that HE has given them. Or to even have some prayer time to give a bond to all who are around you at this party in honor of our heavenly FATHER GOD.

We do have out birthday parties, wedding parties, baby shower parties, graduation parties, welcome home parties and so on. But have we just had parties to gather for fellowship, prayer and bonding with your family and friends to praise GOD?

I want to do this. I want to have my family and friends around where we can all gather around , praise GOD, give each other encouragement, hug or hold hands with the love of JESUS in our hearts. Just having an excellent time sharing the love of JESUS.

I would like to invite those who need to learn more about the LORD GOD who need some answers and encouragement. All while serving up delicious pot luck dinners , eating the good home cooked meals. Food, talk, smiles and praising GOD. You can have even more fun at a praise party than at a party where you will see people drinking and loosing control.

PRAISE AND WORSHIP

Here are some links to my favorite site for Bible verses. It is so cool because you can get this on your phone when you do not have your hard copy Bible with you!

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Praise-And-Worship/

Psalms
Chapter 150

 

1Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.

2Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.

3Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.

4Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

5Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.

6Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.

 

For you will see that what they do there at that theme typed party, GOD is not in it. And they do not want HIM there. It could be an office party where the boss wanted everyone to be there, and you comply.  If you were ever invited to a party where there are those who lose control like that, politely and quietly leave. If you are new to the office, it is best to just show up and not stay. It is not for you if you choose to follow the LORD.

The best parties to have, is when there is love there. As having your loving family and friends there where there is good food, good clean games, good talk and laughter! Just enjoying each others company. But what if you know of a person who lives alone, or is in need of a good church to attend? We can invite them to our praise party.

There are many elderly who live alone and not by choice, who maybe lonely and just need to get out. Maybe they can not get out because of where they live and no one is able to help them to travel. Maybe there is a family that does not have much, or the spouse is ill in the hospital and they need to be around people to give them encouragement.

We all need JESUS, and we need JESUS at all times.

See, when you are in a party mood, it is a happy mood. And you can have some Bible reading before the meal. I say before so you will have people stay longer. And when the desert comes out it is the finishing touch. You can give out little Bible tracts that pertain to the main theme of this party. Giving praise to GOD. Here are some links to where you can print some out and hand them out during your Bible readings.

Psalms Chapter 117

1 O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.

2 For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD [endureth] for ever. Praise ye the LORD.

http://www.freecartoontract.com/are-you-a-good-person-english/GoodPerson-English-3-751x1024

This site above “free cartoon tract.com” is interesting as how they made more like a cartoon. Still you get the point with scripture.

 

With these sites and with any site you will need to read the tracts with your Bible right next to it BEFORE you give them to people. Just because it says it is a Bible tract with scripture in it does not mean it is right. Many are may have false teachings.

Jack Chick.com is another site for Bible tracts, but his way of spreading the word is with a scare theme to it and many people do not like that. And if they get turned off with being scared and not showing a loving heart if JESUS in it they will not be interested and you can lose them. You may not be able to convince them to turn to GOD, accept JESUS as savior and be saved.

So research the best ones on these sites that show the  love of JESUS in it and not to scare people. We are ALL sinners, not one of us is sin free.

Praising GOD for all of the blessing HE has given us. There maybe some people who do not see the blessings they have, until we show them. Praising GOD is one blessing, being able to enjoy good company, having a roof over your head, food in your tummy, feeling loved by GOD. And for a “Babe in the LORD” as how my husband would say coming to a Praise Party will be food for the soul.

worship dinner 2018

I get my inner faith battery charged when there are meetings and gatherings where we all can talk about the LORD and encourage each other by praising GOD! We all need this. No matter what level of faith you have, because there is power and strength in all of us that comes from the FATHER GOD of all heaven and earth and HIS beloved son JESUS!!!

So, whose bringing the dessert? (smile)

Have fun at your praise party! Bring tracts that tell about the love of JESUS and why we need HIM. Put a number of someone besides yourself if they need to talk to someone later or a good church to attend if they do not have one.

Be blessed and never stressed. May a blessing come to all who read this blog and the others, and for sharing and passing it along to others to read too.

Peace! 🙂

GODS blessings or the devils rewards?

opulent mansion 2018

I know many people who do say they would like to live higher up on the income scale to live fancier. Or to play the lottery so they can win the mega millions so they can buy more things. I can truly understand that if you are struggling to make ends meet and you are weary of that struggle. Wanting to catch up on your bills so you can breathe would be a relief.

And when we see many of the celebrities, sports figures. politicians and actors making the big bucks we want to as well. But you do not know exactly how these people have earned the money they have to live so opulently. They maybe living a bold lie as to have the public thinking it is all legit.

It may not be what you think. And if they are not praising GOD and living right by GOD…..you know it is not what you expect if the Bible is very clear as to how GOD wants us to live. Those that are open about the  lifestyles they live that are breaking the moral codes that GOD has set forth in the Bible, then this is not blessed. Why would GOD bless us for doing evil when in the Bible HE gave us lifes blessed instructions?

Not to say that those that are in the Church can do no wrong, it would not be fair. For we all are in the flesh and need JESUS to save us from our sins. But you will find evil and temptation where ever there are people, none of us are perfect. None of us are free from sin.

Living a lifestyle where you don’t think about GOD or have forgotten HIM because you can buy what you want and need anytime you feel the need, this may be the only heaven you will see.

Many succesful celebrities are for what GOD is against, like the sexual freedoms, vanity, lying, lifestyles, and other immoral things. The problem is that the public, starting with the younger children see this. And some of the immoral teachings are tought in school. Putting this nonsense upon our children to make them sway into thinking as how the teacher or school system wants our children to think. Once the removal of prayer had school happened I remember my parents saying the moral decay is evident. This led to a new outlook on life with kids becasue of being introduced to no moral leaders in school. No one to lead them into the right direction there in the schoool. If they see an adult do wrong and not get into any trouble from it then they will follow behind this “nice and likable” teacher. These teachers reward kids who listen to them for this is the way of satans people.

Forget if you teach about the ways LORD to follow JESUS if you do not do so yourself. If you are not strong in the word and love GOD will all of your heart, who will teach your child? And this is giving your child to be lied to by the devil as not to listen to you. Not to listen to the word of GOD. And not to listen to GOD period.

See, it takes a lot of money to be influential and to lead our children into destruction. The type of music and the type of images that are thrown at us all from the lost souls are not with GOD in mind first. They are sexual stimulations that will have people pulled in and addicted to this to where it will destroy alot of relationships our children will get into. Even if it is just a simple friendship to wanting to find a god person to marry. May not happen if they are not living the lifestyle of choice and not the one that GOD will BLESS!

Many very popular female are known for sensual gestures and whatever on stage. And kids are taken there some with parents to see the performers. These beautiful women have excellent voices could sing their hearts out. They do make top money , have hits. But they are seductive. Maybe they know what they are doing, maybe not. These are just some of the people out there doing the very same thing. I wonder what it would be like if they sang gospel songs?

Isaiah 57:3-4 King James Version (KJV)

But draw near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore.

Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood.

I would say they may not be blessed….but rewarded by the devil for doing the things they do out in public.

I would not feel comfortable living in a house so large that I would need to use my 20 speed bike to peddle from one end to another. People do make their own choices but I could not do it, I would want to scale down. I would like my whole family living in the same house!

Philippians 4:19 New International Version (NIV)

19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

https://www.crosswalk.com/blogs/debbie-mcdaniel/a-prayer-for-gods-favor-21-verses-of-his-blessing-and-sovereignty.html

 

The blessings that GOD will give to you will go beyond your understanding. You will be in awe. They will be no one that can touch it and take it from you. It came from GOD and it is all for you.

Stay in prayer, listen to waht GOD is telling you. Becasue when you do pray HE hears you. GOD does not want us to go and dwell in hell forever. He loves us. Never let something that is too good to be true, that has no signs of GOD in it fool you. You will know it is from GOD, because HIS blessings come from HIS pure love.

 

quote-hell-is-the-highest-reward-that-the-devil-can-offer-you-for-being-a-servant-of-his-billy-sunday-180801

Let GOD bless you with all of the things you will need and want in your life to stay on the path of righteousness. Don’t be impressed at the wealth you see others have or the advances they get, or the people they know.

You know GOD. You know JESUS. Depend on them only and you will have an abundant loving life with them in it guiding and protecting you and all of your loved ones at all times!

Be blessed and never stressed! May there be  blessing for the reading and the sharing of the word of GOD.

Team JESUS! The winning team!

Team JESUS emblem 2018

I like to watch sports at times on TV. And I will see many people enjoying them as I watch sports with my husband. I see how happy, joyful, and faithful to the team they favor. They will stick by the team through and through. Will be ready to defend the teams they are on and will break up relationships too if they feel they are offending the their team. Such as with people who want to date others who like the same football team they are on only.

Wearing the team colors openly. Be it with the teams colors are in a uniform or just painting their faces. They will proudly stand in front of a camera and boast about the team and be loud. They will know all of the players, the score and plays made ,and the events that happened in past games. Really devoted fans.

The stadium will be packed in all kinds of weather, with a good chance of getting sick from sitting outside in the rain, cold or snow fall!eagles-fans-snowbowl-

But in this type devotion I GENERALLY do not see with a lot of people who say they believe in GOD. I wonder if these same people would go through all of that , to hear a pastor like Billy Graham or TD Jakes? If they knew that coming there in the same arena GOD would put the words into the pastors mouths that will lead them to salvation? I know that if the weather is bad enough those pastors would not want people to get sick or hurt, so they may through GODS wisdom have to postpone the event.

When I go into church there are some empty seats there, not always packed. When I was a child it was hard to find a good seat to hear the Pastor give his sermon. Elbow to elbow we all sat. Some had to go into the balcony if they were late. And we had to line up early outside of the church to get a good seat. I miss when church was like this. In the last ten years or more, things really started taking a nose dive in attendance.

Faith is strong with many in the worldly things of mankind. Pushing GOD aside unless they need HIM for something, like they are sick and don’t want to die, or they need money, or a mate. Otherwise putting GOD in the back pocket or rear burner. Using HIM as a tool. Not good. And GOD knows our hearts, so HE knows what we are doing and thinking.

No one want to feel like they are used, or taken advantage of. I just feel this is what we maybe doing if we know it or not and need to think about what we are doing. When you are in a good relationship with a person, you do not want to have the feeling they will be around you when they need you for something. Or call on you only when they need money or want something else.

You want a real relationship and bond. You want to be loved and respected as how you do for the people in your life. And this is what I feel is important about the relationship we all do need with GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS!

You want to know you are on the same page, same team as the person or persons you are in a relationship with. The only team I know that works for me is #TEAMJESUS! You have everyone righteous on your side and aiming to reach the same GOAL. (pardon the pun, there maybe more on the way!) You all read the same rule book, the Bible. You know who took the hit for the TEAM and this is our LORD and savior #KINGJESUS!

JESUS was not ashamed to do all that he could to save all of mankind from the sins we all have done our whole lives long. JESUS is the one and only son of the true living GOD, and He obeyed GOD and did HIS will here on earth! All that JESUS did was in love to save us from losing to the opposing team (satan) of the lost and unsaved heading to total destruction.

Be not ashamed of the gospel, be proud to say that you are on #TEAMJESUS!

Rock is on team JESUS 2018

The Rock aka Dwayne Johnson did so, and so can we all. He posted this on his twitter account.  https://twitter.com/therock/status/417352660191571968

When I see people who are well-known doing this I have a new respect for them. Faith is very important to have in the fallen world. If you become successful with JESUS leading you give praise to GOD. It is a good thing , it will encourage others too who do like to follow sports. Let them know this person has JESUS in their life.

Romans 1:16

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

 https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Romans-1-16/

If we are not on the same loving team as JESUS, then what. You can do all you want and need to do here on this earth with saying negative things about JESUS, denying HE has ever existed, not forming a positive relationship with JESUS all you want. But, then too do not be surprised when on the time when we are all on bended knee on that day of judgement what JESUS will say to you.

Matthew 7:22

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

 

Think about all of the people you love right now who push GOD and HIS son JESUS aside. It is sad, for you know they are not on the same team. Pray for them and all who have turned away from GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS. Get them drafted into the team through being a prayer warrior and keeping your faith strong. They need GOD and JESUS too.

May you reieve a blessing for the reading of this word, and to share it with others as well. Have a blessed day in the LORD!

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

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 .

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.
