Hello everyone, I pray that all is well and you will have a blessed day in church if you decide to go.

I came about a church that is in the ground made hundreds of years ago if not more. And this has fascinated me. It is carved in to the ground. I can not imagine doing this kind of work back then.

Here are some pictures of the Church. Not understanding as to why the men back then thought to make the church there, it is still a wonder.

I just thought this was cool. I don’t know how many of you have seen this site, but love the ways that people back in that day used the knowledge and talent they had to worship GOD.

Have blessed day in the LORD. Stay in prayer, keep reading the word of GOD to gain wisdom against those who will try to tell you false truths about our beloved GOD and HIS son JESUS.

Peace!!!

1 John 4:1 "Beloved believe not every spirit…."

Hello everyone, I do pray that you all will have a blessed day. For this is another day that the LORD has made for us all.

I have seen many people that cling to the idea of spirituality and turn their nose up at religion, saying it is too structured. Yet they acknowledge there is a higher power or there is a GOD. And prefer to be “spiritual”.

There are so many beliefs out there to confuse people and keep them from GOD and from accepting JESUS as their saviour of their souls.

To me from what I can see, if any religion or church does not teach that JESUS is the savoir of our souls who do believe in HIM, they are sending every soul in there to eternal hell.

John 14:6 King James Version

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (KJV)

When you are into the spirituality way of thinking, you are not into the truth behind salvation. You are distracted from the truth. JESUS is the truth. None of us mankind will enter into heaven unless we accept JESUS as our key to unlock the door of heavens gates.

ALL of those who have died on before us, who have not received JESUS as their savoir will not get into heaven according to scripture.

And I do understand that many reading this will have people in their lives that have gone on before them that were good people will not want to hear they are not making it into heaven. But the Bible is clear as how GOD’s plan is.

But it is NOT too late to save your own soul from hell. Allow JESUS in your life. Accept JESUS as your savior now.

1 John 4:1

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”

King James Version (KJV)

Choosing a religion that does not teach salvation, is as the lost leading the lost sort of thing.

In those non- Christian religions, they may assume just being a good person, doing good deeds, doing nice things for their family and friends and giving large donations to the needy is being right with GOD. Or just a higher being that they call GOD.

But if you do not love GOD and HIS son JESUS and have a righteous relationship with them both, and have accepted JESUS as savior that is all you will accomplish is just being called a nice person by your peers.

.

Ephesians 2:8 – 2:9

8. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: It is the gift of GOD.

9. Not of works , lest any man should boast.

There are many people out there who think they can buy their way into heaven. Or do favors for their friends and have it known they are a good person. It is not true. Ephesians 2:8 and 9 will correct us on that thought. Some faiths will teach this to people to do good acts/deeds and favors so they will get into heaven.

A person I know will says that they are spiritual. They listen to a person who comes on the internet. This person they listen to is into spiritual thinking, ways that that way appear to be good to this person I know. But what I see is this internet person is playing with their souls fate that will lead them to hell. They are into astrology, dreams, spiritual energy and similar things that has nothing to do with Christianity at all. This internet person is a false prophet.

Read the word of GOD to get understanding and protection from the nonsense of those who are false prophets. Because these workers of evil will seek after those who have not come to know GOD and his son JESUS.

Proverbs 2:6

“For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.”

King James Version (KJV)

I do pray that you will share this with all of your loved ones, for we not want to have anyone crash and burn in hell. Not even your enemies, for they need to be saved too. And once they see the light and repent then they will be part of the body of Christ you in heaven!

Peace!!!!

Spiritual warfare in the world. Ephesians 6:12

It is a real issue.

Good morning to you all, and giving glory to our beloved FATHER GOD first and foremost, for with out GOD there is nothing.

Never forget that our GOD loves us so. And with the ups and downs in this fallen world, we need to keep strong in our faith and to kick in even harder with our faith in GOD and HIS son JESUS our savior.

The evil one is busy confusing people who have little or no faith with whispering lies into their every thought. And you can see the weak ones do the immoral acts of the day. Doing things that they feel they wont get caught doing, or don’t care because they like what they do. The devil knows the weakness of all mankind. It is the flesh that we are in.

He can lie to us and tell us such as:

We are not handsome enough, or pretty enough. But someones set standard.

We are too tall or too short. Why? GOD made variety so that each one of us will be special.

We are not smart enough or even overqualified for a job or task. Why?If a person is under qualified, teach them. If they are over qualified let them teach others.

If a person looks different from you and your family and relatives so what?Then they just have different mothers and dads. If you feel they are not as good as you, then you are wrong for being narrow minded.

Assuming that when a person is over 21, or even 30 is old if you are younger. And assume that they do not work out, like wearing fashionable clothing. That women should not wear dresses above the knee, even if she is fit and works out. This is wrong, for men seem to be considered still attractive when they get older. No one gets ugly as soon as they turn 22 years old. You still remain attractive but you are just older.

These things can cause issues in society when people wind up not getting along with each other because some people need to put other in a box.

Listening to our beloved GOD will give us they encouragement you need, every single time. It will come from like minded people who love GOD as well as you. For any friend that will stop and pray right along with you is a blessing.

Defense against the spiritual warfare. Praying with your family and friends.

Ephesians 6:12

“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.”

King James Version (KJV)

I came across this on YouTube. I found it very interesting so I am sharing it with you. We live in a fallen world and GOD will send HIS angels to watch over us.

Luke 10:19

“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Thank you all for taking the time to read my post in this blog. I pray that you all will have a blessed day. feel free to pass it forward to others you know who will need encouragement too.

Peace!

Feeding the soul with the word of GOD.

Good morning everyone!

Have you eaten yet?

Trying to feed that void that you have in you with the ways of the world will leave empty. Having no satisfaction at all. Not really feeling happy at what the flesh has you doing through the temptations of the world, making you feel sceptical and what appears to be good when it could truly be a good thing. The evil one lied to many people and confused many people into thinking this way.

Falling back into the rut of the feeling of the flesh and not the soul. Our souls are weak without the word and prayer. Without depending on the LORD GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS to guide us through all of this deception, lies and confusion of the whole world.

Those who feed the flesh, walking around without the light of the LORD to guide their steps. Jealous of those who want to seek after the LORD, walk in HIS wonderful light!

GOD is loving and has unconditional love for you and me. Some scripture here at this link too. https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Encouragement/

Mankind has standards that is set made for all humans to abide by or you are considered “outcast” or not qualified to associate with those who do fit those false stands of conditions. Such as looks, money, where you live, how you dress, where you are assumed to come from.

Because of feeding the flesh we can cause all kinds of harm to ourselves or to others.

Let us begin to feed our souls with the word of GOD to clean our minds of the nonsense of this fallen world we struggle to live in.

2 Timothy 1:7

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Lean on GOD. HE tells you the truth. There is no way GOD wants us all to fail. HE sent HIS son JESUS here on this earth to lead us to salvation and freedom from the sins we have done our whole lives long!

Psalms 37:4

“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”

Depending on the LORD will not have you disappointed because the LORD will do what is right for you. We just need to listen to what the LORD is saying once we pray.

Mark 11:24

“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”

Have a blessed day in the word of GOD and let it fill your soul full! Thank you for taking the time to read this blog. Please pass it forward for we do not know who may need a boast of encouragement too.

Peace!!!

Luke 8:11"….the seed is the word of GOD."

My bean sprouts are ready to be sowed!

Good morning everyone! I do pray that your day will be a peaceful and blessed day, for this is another day that the LORD our GOD has made for us all!.

When looking at the seeds in my bean sprouter I was thinking about the word from LUKE chapter 8.

Luke 8:11

8And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

 9And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be? 

10And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. 

11Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 

12Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. 

13They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away. 

14And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.

More soon to be ready for in a meal of salad or soups!

With gardening time soon to be kicking in, every seed I see reminds me of the word of GOD. How the seeds will either produce good fruit , bad or none.

This will apply with all things we do as well, because if we do put a good and righteous effort into all that we do we will have good rewards from it. Like the bean sprouts I grew to enjoy.

They are delish!

What our loving FATHER GOD has made for us to eat is always delish. Perfect for us to live off of. So when we LISTEN to HIM and do as HE says we will be rewarded with good things. Like as I bought this 3 level bean sprouter to eat lighter and have a better meal for lunch….it produced wonderful greens. That is my reward for listening! Yay!

Scripture to me is reading what our GOD is saying about how to make it through this fallen world since Adam and Eve. What happens to people who decide to do things on their own by avoiding all that GOD has set for HIS laws for us to live by

We all have freedom of will as how we want to live. If you want to follow GOD’s laws or not. Luke 8:12 for instance mentions about falling by the wayside.

Then the devil will come along and complicate things because once we turn away from GOD then the devil will be able to confuse us and tempt us to do evil.

GOD loves us, the devil doe not. Remember John 3:16. For GOD so loved the world that HE gave us HIS only begotten son , so that whosoever believeth in him will not perish, but have ever lasting life. The devil does not want you or any of mankind to have that.

Plant good seeds in the way how the word says and we will reap awesome good rewards! The word of GOD is the seed! Study it and spread it to all that you know.

These seeds that are the word of GOD will grow in you as well in others too!

May you all receive a blessing from the reading of GOD’s word, pass it forward to others to get a blessing from it as well too. Thank you for reading this blog! 🙂

Peace!

New Years Resolutions.

Good morning and many blessings to you this new year!

A co worker asked me while we were clocking into work, “What’s your new year resolution for 2020?” I answered by saying “I don’t have any.” That is something I may done once or twice growing up. By now as an adult, lost interest. I will say it is less of stress to not put yourself thru something like that.

Which then gave me a curious mindset to wonder why people go through making these kinds of “promises” or goals.

From what I have learned that is an ancient Babylionan thing of worship to thier gods.

https://www.history.com/news/the-history-of-new-years-resolutions

Babylonians made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts. The Romans began each year by making promises to the god Janus, for whom the month of January is named.

Now from the mindset of a Christian who knows there is only one GOD, the goal to having success in any goal is to know we can not make it without our GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS our savior. I know I can not for sure!

Luke 1:37


“For with God nothing shall be impossible.”

King James Version (KJV)

If we do not ask GOD to lead us and we so things in the flesh and not the spirit then we are in a position where we can fail. Look at how the Babylonians failed from praying to false gods.

There is only one and only true living GOD who is the creator of all heaven and earth. Period. With GOD we can succeed. Here are some Bible verses to encourage you as only the word can.

Make depending on GOD as your New Years Resolution forever!

Bible Verses About All Things Are Possible with GOD!

Matthew 19:26 – But Jesus beheld [them], and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Luke 1:37 – For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Mark 10:27 – And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men [it is] impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

Matthew 17:20 – And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

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.

Mark 11:24 – Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them].

Jeremiah 32:17 – Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, [and] there is nothing too hard for thee:

Romans 8:31 – What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?

Job 42:2 – I know that thou canst do every [thing], and [that] no thought can be withholden from thee.

Genesis 18:14 – Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

Jeremiah 32:27 – Behold, I [am] the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

Isaiah 46:10 – Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times [the things] that are not [yet] done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Proverbs 3:6 – In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

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.

Keep your life simple. Follow GOD’s plan. You will have no stress from letting GOD lead you in your needs. Let this be your resolution for this new year and for all of the new years to come. Joy is in the LORD GOD and accepting HIS son JESUS as savior.

Babylon fell from avoiding GOD. Jeremiah chapter 51 speaks of it plainly. Let us learn from the mistakes that they have made in Babylon and not follow them.

I pray that you all will have a blessed 2020 and beyond. Thank you for reading my posts and liking them as well too. please do feel free to share them to encourage all you do know. For we do not know when JESUS will return to bring all saints back home!


Peace!

Lazarus awakened from the grave.

Good morning everyone, I do hope all is well. this is the 4th day of the year 2020!

Gee, the year 2020 sounds so futuristic! Like from the comics I used to read as a child. And for many of us, it may seem like that was just yesterday when we were kids with no responsibilities to concern us with like being grown and doing grown things as taking care of your children and working the 9 to 5 thing from monday to friday.

What I want to share with you all today is , faith and the power of it. In John chapter 11:37-44. What JESUS had done for the glory of GOD so others will believed and be saved.

As I recall of Lazarus being called from his grave after 4 days…I think about those who are confused and lost wrapped and bound up in sin. Seeing the light of Jesus and heading to him and being cut from his burial wrappings too!

38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. 

39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. 

40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? 

41Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

 42And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. 

43And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

 44And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

John 11:45

“Then many of the Jews which came to Mary, and had seen the things which Jesus did, believed on him.”

I understand the reason as to why JESUS came 4 days after the death of Lazarus. It was so that when JESUS brought Lazarus from his sleep, many people would see this miracle and believe and be saved!

The people in those days were blessed to be able to look into the face of JESUS and see his loving eyes looking back at them. And to see these miracles set before them too! We don’t have that right now. We have our faith to hold on to as we wait on the LORD to return when GOD says it is time.

Let us all stay on track with our faith and never let it go. Never. For as you see how the times are right now with people choosing to do all sorts of evil, making fun and mocking those who love GOD and HIS son JESUS too.

Don’t let what some people do to you take away your faith, leaving you in a dark cave bound up in sin. When JESUS calls you, get up and go to JESUS and come out of the darkness into HIS light! Cutting off what was holding you back from JESUS.

JESUS is waiting for you and me, to follow him.

Thank GOD for JESUS!

Have a blessed day, stay safe, and thank you for taking the time to read my blogs! Pass it forward so others may be blessed too by reading the scripture in my blog to give them encouragement!

Peace!
