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.

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!!!

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!

Learning from innocent children a GODLY love.

Good day everyone, I do pray that you all will have a blessed day that the LORD GOD has made!

I want to share something with you all. I have seen these two videos and they are about as pure in heart as can be. What we can learn from these children is that when you have a friend or friends you share your love for them.

Children are innocent and if they are not influenced by the ways of the world who teach hate and all manner of evils will love one another with a GODLY innocent heart.

This is what is taken from us when we are out in the world…..going to school or work or whatever. That warm feeling of comfort is taken away with lies and other abuse. If it is in the home, then it was led into the home by lies and confusion.

Children need to be protected and loved, this is how they learn to be happy like these children are. In these videos when I saw them, they touched my heart. Some of you may have seen these already. But being me , I need to share this in case you have not.

Children being happy to see another child like them. The children see no difference in each other. They are very happy to see each other and to be with each other. That is how they are before the world steps in to take away that joy!

When I think about the what grown people do to each other , it is horrible. Looking at how the boys are running to each other with their arms out to greet each other is so very touching.

Bible verses related to Greeting Others from the (KJV)

1 Peter 5:14 – Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace [be] with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.

1 Corinthians 1:10 – Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and [that] there be no divisions among you; but [that] ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

1 Thessalonians 5:14 – Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feeble minded, support the weak, be patient toward all [men].

1 Corinthians 16:20 – All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss.

1 Corinthians 1:4 – I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

2 John 1:10 – If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into [your] house, neither bid him God speed:

If we remember as a child, that friend you loved and shared childhood memories that were good and had and adult intervene and pull you two apart, you will remember that. That was an ungodly thing to have happen.

These children are blessed because they are doing what GOD wants them to do. To get along with each other and to love each other as people who are like them. Listen to the videos and gain an understanding of what it is to have a friend you see no color in.

Have a blessed day, life in the LORD GOD. For we all want to be with GOD and HIS son JESUS when we die and live in heaven with them. Peace is a good thing. Share this post with others so they will pass it on and be blessed too.

Peace!


Daniel’s faith and trust in GOD defeated his bully.

I remember as a child about the Lions den, and this always stayed with me. Why Daniel was put in there because he stood his ground against being bullied to do something that was not right by GOD. For in today’s time there are some people who act as though they are lions ready to devour those who love the LORD.

I want to encourage everyone who is being intimidated or bullied in any way shape or form by anyone at anytime or place. See,with faith we can do all things through CHRIST JESUS.

Philippians 4:13

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

King James Version (KJV)

We just need to be patient and listen to the answers that our GOD is giving us through our praying. We can not wish bad things to happen to these people(the Lions). For if we do then we are not doing GOD’s will by loving your neighbor. When if at all possible with every single cell in your body we need to pray for these lost souls. If it be at work, be polite and do your best to avoid them. At school do this as best as you can, but inform your parents as well, for GOD will work through your parents to have your bully leave you alone.

In today’s world it is against the law to bully anyone at anytime. You maybe led by GOD’S will to go legally and file a report with the proper authorities. You never know who is a child of GOD in this types of jobs regarding law enforcement. So yes, pray at all times for GOD will send you the help you need at the right time. But always stay in prayer so you will know it is GOD leading you and not the flesh. Whatever you do, never try to do it spitefully. Do it with spiritual discernment.

Reading the book of Daniel can be like reading a similar situation you will find that has happened last week or yesterday.

I want to share with you what I listen to while I am at work on my phone with my earbuds on. This site has all 66 books to listen to. These are the same recordings that my beloved Grandmother listened to. You will be able to listen to the Book of Daniel too, But you can go to the site and listen to the book of Daniel there.

You can listen to all 66 books here at this Youtube site on your phone or laptop.

Here is the book of Daniel

For those who are bullied , please still depend on GOD to get you through it. I do not like to see anyone bullied. Those lost souls that do bullying will have to answer to GOD as to why they did these hateful things just like the rest of us with the sins we have done as well.

1 John 3:15

“Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.”

King James Version (KJV)

I do ask that you read the word of GOD if you are going through any situations and be encouraged from the most high our beloved FATHER GOD. He can see what you are going through, just go to the FATHER with a pure heart in need of HIM. He will answer you and does see your tears.

I do hope this was helpful for anyone being bullied. Be blessed and stay in prayer. The “Lions” of the world roam about doing their thing to distract you from the LORD with lies and every type of method to confuse you and turn your eyes and mind away from the LORD GOD. Don’t let anyone or thing come between you and the LORD and accepting JESUS as your savior. Let JESUS handle those bullies.

Pass this blog post forward please so others will be blessed too. We never really know what will encourage others when they do need it.

Peace!

Today I saw someone wearing a T-shirt with this on it…

“RUN – Hebrews 12:1”

God’s Word always blesses and encourages!

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Seeking the light of GOD!

In the midst of confusion we all need his light.

Our sunflowers are following the sun!

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” 

King James Version (KJV)

Good day and or night everyone.

I do hope that you all are having a blessed day, for this is the day that the LORD GOD has made for us to enjoy.

In life we all will go through a struggle and need our GOD to get past, and through it. Some of us seek after the LORD JESUS the son of GOD as how sunflowers follow the sun. We follow the son of GOD our JESUS all of our lives as best as we can. For we know we can not make it through this world without our ever loving savior JESUS.

Many of us will just do things our way and wonder how we got into a mess. Blaming others for the choices we make. But right know I am speaking about those who believe there is GOD but do not have a loving relationship with GOD and HIS son JESUS. This is a choice they have made, to believe but not let it go any further than that.

Their minds are clouded with confusion, being mislead into which direction they need to go. Lacking spiritual discernment, which we all do need.

“The fundamental definition for Christian discernment is a decision making process in which an individual makes a discovery that can lead to future action. In the process of Christian spiritual discernment God guides the individual to help them arrive at the best decision. Their minds are clouded with confusion, being mislead into which direction they need to go. Lacking spiritual discernment, which we all do need.” Wikipedia

1 Corinthians 2:14

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 

King James Version (KJV)

To have the LORD guiding you through the paths in your life is a must. For HE does know what is a head of you on your journeys every single day/hour/minute/second of your life. We all need to trust HIM to guide us on a safe journey in life so we can always land on our feet. No worries, just going through life day to day to avoid being confused. Or mislead. There are spirits that are not of GOD too, so this is why we NEED to be connected to the HOLY FATHER and HIS son JESUS.

1 John 4:1

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Light/

“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)

There are those who say they love GOD but will do mean things to people without any reservation that is is wrong to do. They only label themselves as Christians so they can deceive others. Not what GOD has planned any of us all. They are deceivers and hate GOD. Lead you going in a direction you think is right but it is not. Distracting you from GOD. GOD maybe telling you to leave certain people alone and you decide to have it your way. Not understanding as to why you need to take the advice of the FATHER. Until you are the victim of the nonsense they put you through. You have learned a hard lesson on how you should have listened to what you mind told you. It was GOD warning you.

Follow GODS light to lead you out of the darkness.

John 9:5 – As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

Stay in prayer and let JESUS be your “flashlight” on high beams to the right road to be on to be saved, safe and sound to our FATHER GOD. The world is a place with no light without our ever loving GOD and HIS son JESUS.

Have a blessed day, be safe and sound, stay in prayer so you can HEAR what our FATHER GOD is saying to you, what our JESUS is saying to you so you wont stubble and fall. Even though JESUS will pick you up if you do.
