The body of Christ.

Romans 12:4

“For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:”

King James Version (KJV)

All who seek after Christ are in the body!

Good day to you all. I do hope all is well as we are now into a new month in 2020. It is the month for Black history and Valentine”s Day. Both are good thing s to know about for all people.

Speaking of love on Valentines day…this is something that we all should consider doing is to share the love we have from the body of Christ with others. Many have no idea what this is.

As I have read the way that JESUS would talk to women in the Bible HE had compassion for us. Understanding too. But this was for everyone, not just us women. The Children along with the men. So yeah, that is pretty much everyone of all ages. The elders, infants and those in between too.

1 Corinthians 12:12-27 KJV

12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

14 For the body is not one member, but many,

Eli Byrd -“Diversity Functioning in Unity” at the Southeastern Seminary

There is no division between the peoples of the body of Christ. Not an issue with the body of Christ when you understand what it is about. There should be unity. Read 1 Corinthians 12:12-27

We are all one, with differents jobs to do as a body would have hands, a head, a heart to make the body work in unity. We are all given different gifts to do to serve. Cool!

Let us do our serving as how GOD wants us to do so, to encourage others to GOD. Let us listen to GOD to find our gifts, and not to compare us to others. Others have their own gifts as how to serve. A foot can not do what the head can do. And if the leg hurts and you can not walk, then the whole body will suffer trying to move about in pain.

Let us find fellowship with our fellow members of Christ so we can edify each other.

Please do pass this forward so others will hear and read the word of GOD and get a blessing from this. We who love GOD and those who need to find GOD. Have a blessed day!

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!

Hebrews 13:4. Marriage is honorable!

Picture from Terrace Heights Baptist Church http://terraceheightsbaptist.com/media/150213-2451099-1886245/marriage-is-to-be-held-in-honour-hebrews-13-4

Hebrews 13:4

“Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”

King James Version (KJV)

Good morning all, I pray that you all will have a blessed day! For this is another day that the LORD GOD has given us. Another day to start our lives over and move on.

Love is a precious thing . And from a natural man to a natural woman it is sacred and in our GOD’s laws and plans. Marriage is sacred with the bonding of the two on the marriage bed. For this is undefieled and a beautiful sacred sexual bond where no one else is allowed in between the two.

https://www.oneplace.com/ministries/discover-the-word/

When we take our vows, we say this before our FATHER GOD. So this makes it a HOLY union. A legal, moral, loving, bond that is before our GOD. It is not just a piece of paper. It is way deeper than that. It is a lifetime loving comfortable commitment with your spouse.

In this day and age in 2020, we need to know that the one we commit our live to is doing the same thing and we are equally yoked.

Ephesians 5:25:

“For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her.” Genesis 2:24: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” … He who loves his wife loves himself.

This maybe something that was never known to you if you do not read the word. But once you begin to study the word there is a new understanding of peace when you get into a relationship that is right by GOD. You get a feeling of comfort knowing that the person who loves the LORD is all into doing what is right by GOD, will be right by you too. You will be equally yoked as man and woman , no complications.

Both of you need to commit to GOD. Follow GOD’s commandments as humanly possible with the help of our beloved JESUS.

Even if you are in a sexual relationship right now, you don’t have to keep dong what is not right by GOD. Just stop, and repent to wait until marriage. We live in the time of GRACE because of what JESUS has done for our salvation. JESUS is the way in this fallen world.

John 8:3-11 King James Version (KJV)

And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Note: JESUS said…..” neither do i condemn thee: go, and sin no more”

See? Simple. No more sex out of marriage. We don’t have to go in our heads and assume we can not be forgiven. We just stop the sin we are in, and seek and follow JESUS.

Have a blessed day and thank you for reading my post for our beloved GOD, and HIS son JESUS. Pass it forward to someone who may need to know this post and to read GOD’s word.

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!

Isaiah 55:8-9

Hello everyone, I hope your day is going to be a blessed day. For this is another day that the LORD GOD has made for us all.

When it is near summer the weather is warmer and things come back from the winter rest they were in. The greenery is now growing up from the ground reaching out for the suns warm rays. You see color coming back in to the land.

You may sit down and relax after doing some tiding up in your garden and say “….ahh” over a nice cold refreshing drink of iced tea. Then as you do here comes those tiny gnats that seem to want to aim straight for your eye, nose or mouth as you open your mouth to drink.

They can not see the whole picture of what kind of trouble they are getting into as you reach for something to swat at it. For if they did, I dont think they would bother you.

They did no have that kind of understanding, all they know is about eating, finding a nesting place and reproducing their own kind.

I am not comparing humans to gnats mind you….but I am comparing the scenario of not having the understanding of our beloved GOD who can see the whole picture on everything

Isaiah 55:8-9 (KJV)

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

King James Version 

I look at these little teenie tiny bugs and just one will annoy you enough to take the joy from trying to breathe fresh air as it tries to go up your nose! They don’t know what they are doing and the consequences of it.

Just like us humans that think we know better than our ever loving FATHER GOD. We are totally wrong. Scripture tells us so such as in Isaiah 55 8-9. And it is for me to know with comfort that a good GOD who loves me knows more as HE guides me from day to day from the evil one and his wickedness.

The evil one is the one who is always trying to “swat” at us humans with his wicked nonsense! Trying to steal our joy and peace!

We do not need anything from the evil one at all and never ever. Like a child running to their earthly dad for protection from the wicked stranger trying to snatch us from our earthly dad’s hand….this is how we need to be in trusting GOD. Running directly to GOD at all times. GOD and HIS son JESUS are the only 2 we can sincerely trust. People will always fall short even with the best intentions.

Thank you for stopping by to read my blog. Stay in prayer and have a blessed day. Share my blog page so others will get a blessing too please and thank you! Pass it forward! You never know who may need to hear these scriptures at anytime. 🙂

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!

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!
