Romans 12:4 Many members, one body.

Hello everyone, thank you for stopping by! I do hope all is well and that you are able to leave your homes and get a break from being sheltered from the storm of the covid-19.

It is good to know that you are are safe and sound. In the comforts of yur own home. Feeling well or getting over that covid-19. Some good comfort food if you are able to get it makes you feel better.

As I was talking to some people about how well our Grandmothers were excellent cooks…we all remember chicken and rice. I remember my Grandmother making smothered chicken and rice. I remember eating that when we had fried chicken and then the left overs for the next day was the smothered chicken with onions that was very good.

We all have a special meal that our beloved Grandmothers made. But each one of my friends would say that they had chicken and rice. We learned that our homes made it different with the same basic ingredients. Still in its way the same.

Romans 12:4

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

When as a child I would see that my friends Nancy would have something similar to this meal below.

1 Corinthians 12:6

“And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.”

King James Version (KJV)

In my house we would have something similar to this which was smothered fried chicken.

In my husbands family , they would have a meal similar to this…

German Chicken and rice.From the site: https://www.tourism.de/top-100-most-delicious-german-meals/

In my great Grandmothers home it could have been something like this one below. I did not know my Great-grandmother so the recipe went with her. 😦

Or even one like this below may have been what my Great-Grandmother may have had as a child growing up as an Native American. She may have cooked on a cast iron pan like this one.

And with the Native African ancestry, the meal could have looked like this below.

All of those delicious meals I had to start somewhere. From some point. And the point that I am trying to make is that we all maybe different on the outside, but we are member as one body of Christ .

Different spices. Different cooks. All that can make a good meal to feed any hungry tummy. Just like the word of GOD feeds our hungry souls. And can feed ALL souls!

Our souls need to be fed with the word of GOD as though it was chicken and rice. To be encouraged and to be known how much our GOD loves us so.

Give yourself a hug, knowing that we share the body of CHRIST JESUS. JESUS is in us who are in the body, and know that we “hug” one another right now in this time of this pandemic. You are never alone or unloved when you know GOD and HIS son JESUS is with you at all times. ALL TIMES!!!

Psalms 23:4

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

King James Version (KJV)

Enjoy some healthy comfort food while reading up on the word of GOD. There is no perfect comfort like this anywhere. You will not have the distractions of the world around you. Just peace. And maybe this is what our GOD wants us to do, reconnect with HIM.

Have a blessed day, stay safe, keep washing your hands , stay cautious at all times by being aware that the pandemic is not done.

Peace!!!

Luke 11:14-28. One cant cast out evil with evil!

Hello everyone, I do pray you all are well, safe and sound from the virus and anything else that maybe harmful too. For we all need to stay in prayer and wait on the LORD GOD as to what to do each day HE gives to us.

There are many people out there in this world who still are turning their back away from the LORD. Wanting to do what they feel is best for them or what is pleasing to them. Well, they are missing out. Missing on the love that our beloved GOD is showing all mankind that HE has for us all. Only if we turn to HIM our heavenly FATHER ,and for the salvation from HIS beloved son JESUS!

I have heard of many people that they feel just that, restriction and they don’t want to be forced or told what to do. Well satan is very cunning and knows the weakness of mankind. He will temp all mankind into thinking things or doing things we ought not. He tried that temptation with JESUS when JESUS was in the mountains for 40 days and nights to bos down and worship him until JESUS chased satan away.

Matthew 4:10

10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

I many times had wished I was as strong as JESUS. But none of us mankind is, this is why we need JESUS. JESUS is so cool, HE is so wise and strong and handled that situation as an example as how we need to be when we are tempted.

Which brings me to the point…..LUKE 11:18.

Luke 11:18

“If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.”

King James Version (KJV)

We can not cast out satan with potions, spells , incatationsor witch craft or what ever mankind can come up with (through satan’s temptations) to avoid going to GOD and HIS son JESUS in the first place. And I happen to feel that when people go into witch craft….they are worshiping satan on his terms.

This is why when I hear people say they are going into the occult to get rid of a bad spirit that is hanging around their home. But as a pastor says when you do evil things, it will dwell in the house with you.

Prayer, faith in both GOD and HIS son JESUS will protect you at all times. GOD is the supreme being over all. And what GOD says goes.

Luke 11:14-28 King James Version (KJV)

14 And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.

15 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils.

16 And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven.

17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.

18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.

19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.

20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.

21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.

25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.

26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.

27 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.

28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

King James Version (KJV)

Stay in prayer over all of your loved ones, yourself, your home, your job and all that is yours to keep GOD close to you and for you to be close to HIM. Satan is tricky and will keep on trying to make a mess of things until our JESUS returns to earth to take us home. But with the power GOD has..it will not happen.

Thank you all for stopping by to read the word of GOD and this blog. Feel free to pass it forward so others will get a blessing as well too! Have a blessed day!

Peace!!!

Have comfort knowing you are well loved.

Hello all, I do hope you all are well and virus free or getting over it and are on the mends.

Having the peace of mind and comfort knowing God Almighty loves you is so coming and peaceful. As you go through these times in this world I feel the need to remember and remind others of this blessing.

We will always meet more people who are not faithful than who are. And we will always need to be ready to spread the good news of the word. For there our Father lovingly will give instruction on life and how much HE loves us.

HE also tells us of the blunders we fall into when we want to do things our way and not HIS way in the Bible. We all have the freedom of choice on how we choose to live. HE showing us what people went through in the Bible from choosing the ways of man and not GOD’s. All in the old and new testament, so we will learn by example.

Daniel and Nebuchadnezzar in the Bible are good examples. One who choose to follow GOD and one who thought he was god. Daniel was blessed for listening to GOD which kept his life simple and humble before GOD. Nebuchadnezzar thought he was a god and made people worship him or die.

Daniel chapter 5 verse 30-33 kjv

30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?

31 While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.

32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.

33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws.

I have seen many in great power fall like this. Not knowing GOD, or that the things they do has consequences that are from the choices that was done to themselves or others. King Nebuchadnezzar is an example of this. He mocked GOD in his way and was brought to his knees for 7 years eating grass on all fours as an animal would have.

So all this is tosay, our GOD watches over us all. And those who do harm to those who love GOD will be brought down to their knees too as well in todays time.

No one can out do our GOD. Not even the devil for he was kicked out of heaven for all of the trouble he caused even before GOD created the earth. So what ever your situation is at this point, know that our GOD is greater and will heal.

Those who are the most stubborn and prideful wil be humbled.

Stay safe and sound. Stay healthy. Feel free to pass this blog forward to share with those who need to be encouraged too. Thank you very much for stopping by! 🙂

Peace!!!! 😀

Giving the word to others through handmade Bible tracts!

Hello everyone, I do pray that you all are being safe and sound in this day and time of the COVI-19. Wash your hands and wear those disposable plastic gloves if you can. And wipe things down with disinfectant too. Wash your fresh veggies and fruits down with mild soapy water and rinse them off after that. AND above all stay in prayer and we all will get through this!

And once we do give thanks to GOD that HE has kept you safe and sound and got you through it. YAY!

I have been giving people I come across even for a minute some scripture to encourage them and brighten their day. You will be surprised to find that there are more people out there that will call on GOD and have faith than you realize! And this is so great to know!

Those of us who can , should make something to give to people to have in their hand to give them some comfort and scripture is it from what I know. Some people maybe looking for some kind of sign that GOD is still there. Being confused by what is happening tight now in 2020 today.

There are so many verses in the Bible that can touch all souls and give them some peace. Even those people I have met who were not strong in faith,are now starting to think about the things they do. And will find some peace in hearing scripture, but be cautious and use discernment. There are those who even if JESUS stood before them would not accept HIM. Pray over your tracts so that GOD will give you them to the ones who will listen and pray for those who will not. 🙂

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!

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!!!
