1 Corinthians 12:12-27 One body and many members of Christ!

1 Corinthians 12:27

“Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.” 

King James Version (KJV)

Good morning, afternoon and evening to you all!

I do pray that you all will have a blessed day and that our GOD will be with you and give you all of the comfort that you will need! And I do pray for all of those who do not seek after GOD and HIS son JESUS right now that will from here on. For if you are lead here today, I pray that GOD will give you the answers that you need to give you insight and faith in HIM to be a member of the body of Christ. Amen!!

We who are followers of JESUS are in the body, making us one family of GOD. There are no man made barriers that divide us from one group of people to another. We are one unit. Forget about the skin color, where a person came from, how little a person has, what clothes they have on, their height or weight, what language they speak. How much education they have or how little they have. Or anything else that man has thought of to divide people from being united in Christ!

I thank GOD for JESUS!!!! JESUS is the savior for all mankind!!!

Getting past the stereotypes we judge people by, I feel that once we do that and redo our thinking to think Christ like we wont care about the ways of the world. For how they judge us with their own ways. We will see a person, a soul with flesh, and to focus on the soul getting past the outside appearance to their heart. Doing so with GODLY discernment.

1 Corinthians 12:27

24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: 

25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. 

26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular. 

28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. 

29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? 

30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

Pastor Douglas J. Helton of Calvary Baptist Church, St. Charles Iowa.
http://www.calvary-baptist-church.com/

Being in the body of Christ we are compassionate towards one another at all times, knowing that the person in front of you has Christ in them. We can not divide our selves and destroy each other and assume GOD will not see what is in our hearts. Or to do evil in the dark and closed places assuming GOD does not have the power to know all. GOD does know all.

The sermon that my husbands friend, Pastor Helton is teaching here in the 8/11/19 message is about just that. Any hurtful words, actions or thoughts GOD know all about it. Pastor Helton speaks of Galatians chapter 5:22-23.

Galatians 5:22-23 KJV

22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23. Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

KJV: King James Version

Let us get more into the practice of doing what this verse mentions about the 9 fruits of the spirit. We will then have more inner peace with in us. Knowing that we are doing GODS will and are spreading the peace that is in us to others.

Galatians chapter 5 22-23

May you all receive a blessing fro reading GOD’s word in this post. Please do share this message to others so they can read it and be blessed to from GOD and to know our beloved savior Christ Jesus! Pass it forward!

Peace!

Nature and all that GOD created!

Colossians 1:16

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:”


A Robin like the ones in our yard.

Hello everyone, I do hoe that your day is going well!

Yesterday, as I had finished my day of working on the garden I was looking at the beginning sunset. The colors were starting to form as the sun was doing its thing the go on to through its task.

As I thought too bad my husband was not out to see it with me last night, he was inside doing his chores. But one of our little Robin friends came by and visited me as I looked at the sunset, chirping.

I said to our bird friend “Hello Robbie, how are you? Look at the sunset that the LORD GOD has made!” The bird chirped once more, seeming to turn his or her head to look at the sunset also.

Now, I don’t know if the bird was responding to me talking to it or not. But it did seem to know I was paying attention to him or her. Which made me wonder if animals enjoy watching a sunset or sunrise too. And if they know anything about who created it.

What GOD created, still each day will fascinate me. Because mankind can not create life of any kind. All we can do is procreate as how we are designed by GOD to do.

There is no wisdom like our GOD’s wisdom, no place. No where. HE knows of what was, what is and what is to come. It is so comforting to know this when you’re going through a situation that you need our GOD to fix!

Every little flower, tree, fruit, plant is designed by our GOD. And to think about all of the types of plant life that there is that we know of and do not is so awesome because none are quite the same. Not even the blades of grass is are the same. Not on all places in your garden or even in different places on the earth.

When you go outside today, think about the beauty that GOD created. Think about how it all is apart of the circle of life, how the rotates around the sun. Making the light day one, or the dark evening, how the stars can be seen on a clear evening sky. It is the same sky that our loved ones before us has seen and enjoyed too that has crossed over to be with our GOD.

Enjoy this day with peace , joy and encouragement from our FATHER GOD. May a blessing be to you all who read this blog post and share it with others so that they will be able get a blessing too. Pass it forward!

Peace!

Matthew 5:44 Prayer Lists. Pray for you enemies as well as your loved ones too.

Good morning , afternoon or evening to all who are reading this blog today. I do pray that you all will have a blessed day in the LORD!

As each year in time, it gets closer to the return of our JESUS coming again to take all of the people who love HIM away with HIM. We are here in this fallen world to cling to our faith in our loving GOD and HIS loving son JESUS. Our trust and prayers to our GOD for us to have eternal peace.

Confusion, defiance, going against all that is right and Holy by calling it wrong seems to be the normal way of things today. It must be close to what Noah saw in his days before the great flood.

And in all of this confusion we wait in prayer for our saviour to return. But while we are here we must pray for all those we meet in passing. Our families and loved ones. Our beloved friends who we hold close to us too as if they are family. And also our enemies, those who seek to do us harm.

These people who hate us , hate our ever loving GOD too. They feel the need to hate us too because they know that GOD is in our hearts….they can sense it. Even at 1st glance. They do not want you around. Period. They will have to answer to our GOD for all they do to us.

These worldly people will always have more friends than you simply because they will be around like minded worldly people. There are more worldly thinking people around than there are saved and love GOD.

It is our job as Christians to try to spread the good news about salvation to these people in a loving way. Never harsh. We should give them hope and an truthful answer to why things happen. We all have a burden to carry or a cross to bear. But because of the confusion, they will or may assume wrong. This is why we need to tell them about JESUS in a loving way and let them know we all are sinners too. No one is better than the other, the only man to walk the earth with out sin was JESUS.

You will find people who do not have a connection to our GOD everywhere there are pepople, for the devil is busy trying to steal souls.

So this is why I say we need to not only pray for our loved ones, but for all people we know. Friends or not, they need prayer as well as you and I do.

My prayer book.

I started a prayer book. My book is not a fancy one. I little spiral note book that is small enough to fit in my pocket or bag. Love how small and thick it is at the same time.

The first page has my prayer for all of the people I add to the book. I add the names and what the need is or not. The LORD knows their need and that is what is important their need. The LORD knows the details.

It will fill up fast when you see how many people might confide in you with the situations that they may have. When you have a peacefulness about you, people will come to you who are seeking GOD and want to have someone who cares about them around .

Not like those who hate GOD and have no intentions on changing, but those who want to know GOD and are aware that there is a GOD. They are “babes in the LORD” as how my Husband will best explain it. I think this is a good explanation!

I have heard of people praying for people and then adding them to their prayer list since a child. Some would have more than book from doing so for years. Each person will do so in the way that they feel the LORD is leading them to do it. There is no set formula but a sincere heart and compassion for the people you write in your prayer book.

Matthew 5:44

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;” 

King James Version (KJV)

Our enemies do not realize what they are doing and the consequences that will come from it. They have not a clue. And if they feel there in a GOD, they may not care what our GOD thinks or GOD will not see what they do if they do so in secret. Yeah, but we who love and fear GOD know way better than that.

Here is some scripture to get things started in understanding why we as CHristians need to pray for all people. JESUS sacrificed HIS life on all of us people. So a loving prayer for all people is nothing compared to what our JESUS has done to save us all from sin.

Pray for all mankind, for we all need prayer. Everyone that you know and don’t know. We all will need to answer to our GOD for all of the wrongs we have done, thought, and said. Everyone.

Prayer will not hurt ever. And maybe with us praying for our enemies they will be saved, we do not know how the LORD will intervene in our favor. But we do know that he will because HE does love us!

Stay blessed and please pass this forward to the next person so that thay will recieve a blessing as well too.

GOD’s Covenant, the rainbow.

The Covenant.

Genesis 9:12 – 9:13

12 And God said, This [is] the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that [is] with you, for perpetual generations:

13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

genesis9_16b 6-27-19

Good morning everyone,

I pray that you all will have a blessing today that will bring you closer to GOD that will warm your heart with a blessed smile.

I have seen many rainbows, and even double rainbows that would come after a heavy rain. The air would smell so fresh and sweet after a heavy rain. A really clean fresh smell. As GOD has cleaned the air!

It always fascinates me as how our GOD had designed things! The rainbows all have such beautiful colors in them. And they all are shaped round like the arch in a bow. Red, orange, yellow,green, blue and violet as the prominent colors.

 

Revelation_21-4 (1) 6-27-19

 

The symbol of the rainbow is sacred. It is the covenant made between GOD and all  mankind that HE would not destroy the earth with water as HE had in the time of Noah. That was the time of the great flood as it is written in the book of Genesis. It had rained for 40 days and 40 nights back then.

What our GOD holds as sacred should be as such for all of mankind. It is something that we will have to answer to when we take sacred symbols from the Bible and use it for mankind’s lifestyle and choices. Those who do not read the Bible or seek the truth behind why things are created the way that they are will use what GOD intended to be used for in HIS plan disrespectfully.

The rainbow is a sacred covenant between GOD and all of mankind, not a symbol of a chosen gay lifestyle. See, to change what GOD has made as holy is not a good thing to be doing. If  those who have read the Bible and KNOW the meaning of the rainbow and feel it is okay use it for a lifestyle that GOD had said that was not in HIS plan….well like the rest of us will have to answer to that and what ever else we have done on judgement day.

rainbow 6-27-19

The rainbow is pure, clean and beautiful made by our beloved FATHER GOD as HIS faithful promise. We are just humans in this. HE is all powerful. We may not agree with GOD in defiance, or we can agree with GOD lovingly. It is all of our choices in life as to what road we want to choose for all of eternity when we die.

Let us who love GOD pass this joy we have to those who do not know the Bible. Doing so with scripture so they can read it to gain understanding  that will bring them closer to GOD. To accept JESUS as savior. The words of the Bible are all true, the covenants between GOD and man should be respected.

May you all get a blessing from GOD that will bring you closer to GOD in mind, heart, faith and spirit from reading this blog or any of the other blogs I have written. Pass it forward so others will be blessed as well too!

 

Peace!

Don’t live by other peoples opinions. Only GOD is judge!

img_20150308_1324516398243000901642366.jpg

Good morning everyone! I do pray that you all are well! For this is another day that our FATHER GOD has made for us!

We all have been judged by one person or persons in our lives. Be it good or bad we are perceived to be one kind of a person by another.

There can be harmful effects from when people judge others by what is in their own hearts. For if they have evil in their hearts, then this is how they will judge you.

It will come out in what they say or do. The thought will come to them first, then the action. Nothing is subtle about being evil. Nothing. Even body language will open what is in a heart and mind too.

When we lean on the LORD GOD for guidance then we can be better prepared for the distractions of the world. Those who do not follow GOD’s plan, knowingly or unknowingly they follow satan and his destructive ways toward mankind.

Yes , temptation is a harmful evil distraction on humans being right for GOD. And when we are being distracted from doing what is right by people who are influenced by satan who are not trying to do right it is not a good thing.

It is good GOD sent JESUS to be our savior of our souls. We can not save ourselves. For no matter how hard we try to be right, we are not perfect and need JESUS to save and encourage us all. Not to put us down ever.

They who seek to put you down and make you feel like you are not qualified to be a painter, a pastor, and actor , model, doctor , lawyer may have been told negative things in their own life. So if they were judged to think that they can not achieve their dreams, this is how they feel about you. You can not either if they can not.

People will judge you on

  1. How you look
  2. Where you come from
  3. Your age, be it you are too young to know better, or too old to do a task.
  4. Where you live or where they THINK you live.
  5. The lifestyle they assume you live, because they live it.
  6. What you can afford and what you can not.
  7. Your faith. If you are a believer they assume you are not and vise-versa. All without even taking the time to know you at all. No conversations, or even knowing your name.
  8. Your born natural GOD given gender. If you are a woman you do not know how to fix our own car or a man SHOULD know how to fix a car. See , a woman may have been taught to change a tire by her Dad so she can get home. A man may live in NYC where he took cabs and mass transit and did not need a car.

I can go on, and I am sure many of you have been judged by our fellow humans. All this is to say, do not let those people who judge you put you down and disrespect you into thinking you are unable to do good.

That you can not achieve your dreams in being successful in your career. As long as you are right with GOD in how you live, let GOD therefore be the judge. Live your life to please GOD in all you do and you will have no regrets.

HE will send the right people around you, and you will bond with them. By increasing others faith by being positive and prayerful together. It is good to be around brothers and sisters in the LORD. The Bible reading and prayer with brothers and sisters is like having your “soul’s battery” charged together! The ways of the world is draining, and we need that charge!

If you can read the word at work, or school , or on a bus or train…..do so for your soul. It will block those that judge you harmfully. I have seen those that do harm to me get the same thing done to them. GOD looks out for all of HIS children that do love HIM!!!

Psalm 1 King James Version (KJV)

1.Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

King James Version (KJV)

Be blessed and never stressed. Pray with your friends and family to keep the bond strong with prayer. Keep each others battery charged and ready to face the ways of the world and all of the distractions in it! Please feel free to pass this blog forward to others so they can be blessed as well.

Remember, only our beloved GOD in heaven is qualified to judge you. And heaven is where we aim to be when our time here on earth is done! Amen? AMEN!!!!

Peace!

Psalms
Chapter 145

(David’s Psalm of praise.) I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.

Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.

One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.

I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.

And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.

They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.

The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.

The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.

10 All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee.

11 They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;

12 To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.

13 Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.

14 The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.

15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.

16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.

18 The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.

20 The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.

21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.

Deuteronomy_6-5 6-16-19

Blessing you dear FATHER GOD with all my power and all that is in me now and for all eternity long!

AMEN!

We are as different fingerprints but united thru JESUS CHRIST!

fingerprint 6-9-19

Good morning everyone!

I do hope the weather is wonderful there so you are able to go out and enjoy it! It is another day that our ever loving GOD has created for us.

There are still some things in this world that GOD has made that amaze me each time I think about. Something that when we notice our hands and fingers and on others is the finger prints. They are all unique in their own design. Even on each hand they are not the same and do not match. And it gets even more complicated than that, not the same in each family with siblings, including twins!

Yet with the all the blood types that there are with mankind , we all can not share the same blood in any transfusion. It needs to match to be useful to help another person. And this is with all tribes (I do not like the term “race” since we all came from Adam and Eve) of people, we all have the basic blood types. Not all family members have the same blood type. Sometimes people will need a complete stranger from another family to donate blood to help heal them. I feel this is something that GOD has planned to keep us in check that we all need to help each other no matter what tribe or family they come from.

We mankind need to learn to love and bond with each other as how GOD is saying to do so thru HIS ever loving word.

Ephesians 4:3

“Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” 

King James Version (KJV)

We are all different but the same. We are all individuals making our own choices her on GOD’S earth as how we choose to live our lives. Be it by GOD’S loving plan or mankind’s confused plan.

We are individuals that are free to make the choices we make for ourselves. Yet we need to remember to love others as how we should love ourselves. Not in anyway shape or form as feeling you are greater than the next person, or any other person you meet.

Fingerprints. Being different but the same in the body of Christ is powerful when we go to minister the word of GOD.

Romans 15:5 – 15:6

5 Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be like minded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:

6 That ye may with one mind [and] one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

But with unity amongst the members of the body of Christ , we can do wonderful things for the ministry of the word of GOD. I really do enjoy fellowship with those that are like minded as I am in serving and praising GOD and HIS son JESUS!

1 Thessalonians 5:11

 “Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.” 

King James Version

 

The next time you look at your fingerprints or someone else’s, or even think about the common blood types, we are different but still connected. Somehow by either in a way or another by either two. The common human trait of fingerprints, most people have them. People have blood and in ways we connect thru that with the blood types and donations that those who need transfusions get, or even organ donations too.

Think about the next paper cut, or manicure you get and the scripture that tells us to fellowship. I will encourage you as well as your fellow believer in JESUS! Have a blessed day, stay in prayer at all times, stay incontact with our FATHER GOD and JESUS our savior! Read the word for wisdom and comfort., it helps me and it will help you as well too! Share this blog so others will have peace and blessings too. Pass it forward!

Peace!!!

Hebrews 10:25

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” 

King James Version (KJV)
