Unity! One heart!

We as all mankind came from one man and one woman here on earth. Starting from the Garden of Eden as it is stated in the book of Genesis. Now here is something that we people have done since then.

After eating the forbidden fruit , allowing satan to tempt us to divide our selves from GOD from the very first sin. It is a very sad thing when you think of it for we NEED GOD in our lives 100%. Turning away from HIM will cause , and has caused confusion of all kinds.

We also have divided ourselves from each other by jealousy, hate, pride and greed to start with. Cain slew his brother Abel. Cain killed Abel later on out of jealousy and anger which issued out of his hurt ego, which had received a severe blow when his offering was rejected by GOD and Abel’s was accepted by GOD. This created in him an anger that was insatiable until he killed his own brother to satiate it.  Not a good thing.

See this is the beginning of mankind being divided amongst  our selves as I see it. The separation of Cain from Eden because of the murder, and then he had a mark on his head as well that let people know he was not to be killed and was different.

In all that, GOD still loved him and spared him for what he did.

From what I understand we people have gotten to the point in time when we have come up with different interpretations on how to worship GOD. Different denominations. I am not including those who are Buddhists and the other choices of religion like this. For this is something totally different for they do not pray to our GOD, they have their own. They made their own up as did the true Jews with Aaron and the golden calf in the days of Moses. Or not to believe in GOD at all. So different from the great Grandparents Adam and Eve.

Philippians 2:2

“Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.”

 

There are so many confused people about the earth doing things that are not morally correct with GOD. Living opposite of what GOD have given us all as instruction for a peaceful life. Yet we choose not to and be mean and hateful to one another for no GODLY reason. Listening to the father of all lies.

Unity in prayer in your family helps you to bond with your grandparents, parents, siblings and cousins. You know you are bonded not only by blood, but by the blood of Christ JESUS! And when you have friends that pray with you they are your extended family.

Here are some verses on Unity to read at this link. https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Unity/

Well why can’t we do the very same thing with others? We are all bonded by faith through the blood of JESUS Christ, and we should respect that. Do not assume because someone looks different from you, and you don’t know them as in the color of their skin assume they are not saved.  How could you do such a thing, is that what JESUS has tought us? No.

 

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.”

King James Version (KJV)

 

See, once we accept JESUS as our savior we should do our best to be unified as Christians. Be it your family, relatives or friends. Not excluding associates you work with too. People do watch us Christians. Those who are not saved to see us make a mistake as though they assume we are perfect and without sin. But we all are with sin, every soul since the fall from Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden.

Not one soul , person that walked the face of this earth is better than the other by GODs law. Every knee shall bow before JESUS on judgement day mine , yours, and the people like Donald Trumps as well.

 

Romans 14:11

“For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”

King James Version (KJV)

Unity will bring the prayer warriors together to gin strength in prayer against the enemy of our souls.
Unity keeps us encouraged and to encourage each other.
Unity keeps us all on one accord, like-minded and in peace with each.

Romans Chapter 12

4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:

5So we, [being] many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

 

Let us be like-minded and pray together, Baptists, Catholics, Methodists, Non-denominational, and other Christians who believe in the same GOD pray as one in unity and forget the labeling.

Heaven is where our GOD dwells and we have faith and love HIM because we want to get into heaven to b with GOD and HIS beloved son and our savior JESUS!

 

Ephesians 4:3

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

King James Version (KJV)

Peace!

No regrets!

No regrets 2018

When you are a child of GOD and love GOD and His son Jesus, guess what? This is that hate for GOD and Jesus secular souls have, that hate you as well because you have GOD and Jesus in you.

This is a good thing because GOD is over you protecting you ever so lovingly and no thing or person or weapon of destruction will harm you. You have the all-knowing and powerful GOD in heaven with His beloved son on your side. So it is always right to follow GOD and trust GOD. GOD always wins. ALWAYS.

You will find in your life of faith that there are many who will test you because of the life that they choose to live and feel you are too good to be true. But this is a sign to you to beware of them and stay in prayer at all times. For they seek to bring you down in front of others because of the person they are. They choose they path of life they wanted to go by and are envious of you for having the strength not to do the same!

Gods way or mans way 2018

They love the sinful life and all that goes with it. They live for the flesh and the laws of “man’s way”. Not for GOD’s way. For some reason they feel they are not able to do what they want to do under the laws of our GOD. GOD’s laws are a guidance to show us how to live in peace so we would not have to suffer doing things we should not and never being happy. Feeling that thy will be constricted, held back some how.

Not true. For an example. There are people out there that were told to take crack cocaine and it will make them happy. Well you see how it has affected many with that lie. You look at them in their misery that was caused by that deception.

Many are able to turn away from it and never turn back to that addiction and the lies that brought them into it with great effort! Many were not successful at it and have died from that horrible addiction of cocaine or any other drug be it legal from a well intended doctor trying to help heal a person. Sin is based on a lie from the devil, tempting all people to do harm to themselves or others. Once they turn to GOD and His son Jesus for help, many are saved and find true everlasting peace and love. Unlike the lie they were told that would give them the same!

As a teenager, I was approached by other teenagers about trying things that I had no desire to try.  Saying to me that I was denying myself. I would find peace and joy if I smoked pot. I knew all well  and good that was a lie. It didn’t even sound right. Because I had faith then, and what these peers (peer pressure people) where saying just even felt wrong.

I said no.

They said “Why? You are denying yourself! ”

I said “What would be the point? You smoke that. You are not happy. I see what you go through here in school. You do all the things I would not do and seem to get your self in trouble with the teachers because of it. If you think I want to end up like that you are totally wrong.” I walked away.

The other guy that was with him said…”I told you she wasn’t like that.”

Just because a guy is cute , doesn’t mean he is right and you have to do anything to please him. Goes the same for you guys too, if a girl is trying to tempt you to do wrong, leave her alone so you will have no regrets. Here is a link to some encouragement starting with ….

1 John 1:9

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

The link: https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Regret/

 

See this temptation stuff is something that has been going on for centuries ago and will continue until Jesus returns to bring all who love him right into heaven with him. See there are those who feel that what Christians are doing is a waste of time as we stride to do what is right for GOD. We will have no regrets when our day is done.

What about those who don’t care and live by man’s way? If they don’t do GOD’s way then when their day is done, they will have regrets when our beloved Jesus is standing at the gate of heaven and will not let them in. They can’t say, “Oh I though those Christians were lying! I am sorry I believe them now! Please, may I come into heaven now?” They will regret not changing and leave the ways of man to follow the ways of GOD. No turning then for it is too late. For at least if we Christians are wrong, and I know we are not by the way we would have no regrets because we did good. And because we are striding to do the will of GOD we will hear JESUS say “Job well done”.

 

Matthew 25:21

21His LORD said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy LORD.

 

How many of you want to hear this? I know I do, because I do love GOD and His son Jesus with all of my heart, mind, soul and strength now forever and for all of eternity long. I seek to have an abundance amount of peace and love there as it is written in Psalm 37.

I happen to listen to Ravi Zacharias, he is a pastor. One of many who are good speakers of faith. He has some good points on his pod casts. You will learn how to answer some people when they ask you about why you are into faith. Not saying he is the only pastor that can do this, but I am mentioning Mr. Zacharias for right now.

 

ravi-zacharias

 

I listen to many pastors , but he is an apologist speaker who travels around the world to lead people to Jesus.

See on YouTube. “https://youtu.be/RAtyjNjf3TE” You may have to click on the word YouTube in the task bar above to see it.

Let those who seek to guide you into their bad habit and ways to do their thing. They are after what is right, they seek fleshly desire fulfilment. They are not thinking about being in heaven with GOD and His beloved son Jesus. YOu know it is like they have blinders on their eyes or just walking around in the darkness. They roll their eyes at you when you aim to tell a truth as if you are lying to them about anything let alone Jesus. Sad too. They don’t see the lie that was told to them by satan is giving them grief. These people will have regrets I they do not change the path they are on to GOD’s path.

Matthew 25:21 KJV

21: His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

 

The right gate 2018

 

I pray that we all will have no regrets and will turn away from the sin we are in, that we all will take the small gate that is leading to heaven so we all can celebrate the coming home to Jesus as He says come on in. Welcome home! It is a hard to be good, but when you have your two best friends in all f the heavens and earth GOD the Father and his beloved son Jesus….they will help you get through!

Listen to the words of this song. Think about meeting Jesus at the gate of heaven and having so much peace and love there you can not measure it. All because we listened and followed God and His beloved son Jesus!

Thank you Father GOD for Jesus and the sacrifice that was made for all mankind!

May you all get a blessing from the reading of the this blog, and for the sharing of it to those you want to read it! Have a blessed Sunday! Praise GOD Almighty at all times , now and for all of eternity! Thank you Father GOD for your beloved son Jesus!!!

Stolen innocence.

I hate pornography 2018

http://www.lovingwhenithurts.com/2014/02/i-hate-pornography.html

I HATE PORN.

It has stolen the innocence of many children on all levels for hundreds of years.

When I was in Middle School, this is when I first heard of boys looking at this sinful stuff called porn. Not knowing what they were doing ,besides making a lot of vulgar noises in the back of the class. Passing around what seemed like regular  3×5 inch photos. This may have went on for about a week or so. When the teacher came by the photos were put away.

They did get caught when the teacher caught them. But they only got caught when one of the girls blurted out what they were doing. I want to tell you this sin has stolen the innocence of many children. I hate porn.

I hate porn, it is useless garbage to the mind and body. Pure evil.

I hate porn! It is an addiction to many people , and this affects their social life in all aspects and relationships. No matter where they go, with whom they speak to. Those images that they see flood their minds with the negative stimulation they get or have gotten from looking at it.

We must guard children as best as we can from this disease of the mind. When , and as they get older in life it affects how they can relate to people every where they go.

If they are married they are cheating on their spouse or significant other. Lusting after the person or people they see on the screen or any other kind of media. You are putting another person between you and your mate. So now, you will not be able to relate to them on a GODLY level. Marriage is sacred and with your faith you will need to ask JESUS for help. Your spouse will not trust you and will feel you cheating on them even if you don’t touch anyone. Your mind went there where it should have never gone.

Say goodbye to your marriage or close relationship if you think you are handling it right. You are not.

Fight it, turn away from this addiction. It is on an equal level of a destructive addiction as any other drug. You can not do this on your own. JESUS can help you and will. For JESUS is wiser and stronger than you, and sees what you are going through right now.

Enjoying the unGodly  acts they may see in any form of media by watching or participating in it themselves. You will want to introduce this sin to your spouse thinking this will make your marriage better. No it will not, the fact that it is porn alone will let you know it is not how GOD intended a man and a woman to unite and bond together in marriage. Porn has unclean acts, gay acts in it, and more. It is not right by GOD.

Marriage is scared between a man and a woman. GOD gave us this so we could love each other fully and GODLY. Color has nothing to do with a man and a woman being married either to each other. It is still heterosexual act. Not a fetish as what a porn lover would assume. It a mere culture difference, and when the man and the woman love GOD together as a married couple it is right by GOD.

I read an article on this link that is not written in a religious way of thinking. Basically porn is a lie. Stealing innocence and aiming to make a lie the truth. The author made some good points to this sin. Kimberly, Old Fashioned Girl Blog .  https://www.oldfashionedgirlblog.com/blog/the/porn/myth

I hate pornography 2018 2

With these images stained in their minds, they will not be able to turn it off and will constantly be thinking about the porn. Once they see a person to whom they think is attractive….they will get flash backs .

We all know people who are addicted to this sin from school, work or those at home. Some of you reading this may be addicted to this sin and feel that there is no help for you. But there is.

Matthew 6:22-23

22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

23  But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great [is] that darkness

 

Even if you were introduced to this at the age of a middle school child like the boys in my class back then. Or before that age, younger. You don’t have to keep doing this. You will never be happy and satisfied by living like this, because it is like any other addition. Be it drugs, food, smoking or video games.

See, the innocence that is lost from the temptation of this sin will never come back to you. It is gone forever like stolen virginity. Mind rape though. Children that are introduced to this, have been violated. I do feel that people who think this is okay to let their children see these things because they feel they will wind up seeing it anyway should think twice. You are putting your child through things they do not need to go through, and addiction that will keep them confused.

I hate pornography 2018 3

It is not true that all men read do watch/read porn as according to The Dating Divas . I know if some who have and some who do not. Just like with any addiction people may have in this world, not all are addicted to smoking a cigarette. Some just don’t, don’t want and don’t need to. This article is not open-minded enough to understand this. But it did feel it was an interesting opinion.

This is a sin that affects everyone. If you stay in your house alone somehow this garbage could reach you from just watching tv, or your phone, or laptop! It is very destructive to the morals of mankind.

Christians against porn. “Why Christians Should Take a Stand against pornography” https://www.globalchristians.org/articles/noporn.htm . I found this very interesting to read.

image11

But to get the best read there is , read the word to keep your mind on the LORD for he is your strength. You will find that reading the word, holding on to HIM and needing HIS power will pull you up and away from that sin.

Here is some scripture to read to help you at this site, click on the link. King James Bible on-line is one of my favorite sites to go with my KJV Bible.

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

I hope this helps. Be mad at the devil for lying to you and get on the right path with GOD. You reading this is the next step to leaving the sin of porn alone. GOD may have led you here to help you. We all need GOD and HIS son JESUS. All mankind, not just some people. All people. GOD is good, loving and caring and want us all to be right with HIM at all times.

May all who read these posts be blessed and never stressed. and pass the new to others as well. Let the LORD in your heart and find pure joy and peace.

Peace!

It is very hard to be good, but easy to be bad.

black Jesus Statue 2018

 

I need Jesus every single day of my life.

Every second, minute, hour, week, month, year to year to year.

All day long.

Temptations are every where people are. There are those people who are blessed by GOD for doing good and then there are those that are rewarded to living sinfully be the devil.

The struggle to do good is very real, you can not please all people. You should not have to please other people who mean no good for you anyway. We are to please and praise GOD, for those of us who do love him seek after him this is what we do.

Psalm 34:1

34 I will bless the Lord at all times :praise shall continually be in my mouth.

I think about the things that our beloved Jesus had gone through as a man here on earth to save us all from our sins so we may live an abundant life here on earth and to be able to spend all eternity long with GOD the FATHER and HIS beloved son JESUS.

Jesus suffered on this earth by the hands of mankind whom HE was sent to save! Jesus went through being lied on and to, hated for being good, tempered by the devil, beaten, spat on, stabbed , betrayed and even more. Just to save the souls of all mankind that believe in HIM! Love is greater than hate, and this is proven by what Jesus did as a man walking the face of the earth.

How can we as mankind ignore this kind of love and be so stubborn as not to turn to Jesus? Why do we seem to love sin? We all sin. Even those who claim to love the LORD with all of our hearts…we still sin. But for the grace of GOD sending HIS beloved son Jesus here to earth, we are saved from death and given grace in this fallen world of sin.

We are given a choice as to follow Jesus and get on the path of righteousness or to continue to stumble and fall on the path from a loving GOD. It is easy to make mistakes or slip ups. But this is part of being human and of the flesh. The fleshly desires and life we live has an impact on the choices we all make. True joy and love comes from all that is good and right….GOD and his beloved son Jesus.

No one will and can love you like they do, now or ever. Period.

But once we make the choice to follow GOD, the devil will not like that. He thought that you were turned away from GOD for ever and now can keep you away from GOD, from Jesus! He will lie to you and twist your thoughts anyway he can….dont listen to the devils confusion.

It will be hard for you once you turn away from the ways of this fallen world. You are now “Woke and eyes are opened to the truth”. Before you didn’t like the truth told to you, or you didn’t tell truths. Now you seek the truth. You seek Jesus now and the truth He will lovingly tell you.

Think about the awful things that Jesus the son of GOD went through for us all who believe in him….all of his blood that was shed, treated so horribly while trying to save us from eternal death. I am so sorry that Jesus had to go through all of the sins I have done and the whole earth too.

This is so sad when you think about all of the people in the world who prefer doing evil whether they know it is or not…turning away from GOD and his son. They will not be allowed in the kingdom of GOD. They devil is lying to them to keep them from getting into heaven because he can’t get in there now either.

The people who were able to actually see the face of Jesus were blessed to see his beautiful loving face looking at them. They were able to hear his voice talking to them, they could be hugged by Jesus. They could sit down and have a meal with King Jesus. They were able to be fed bread and fish by Jesus. This was so cool to me, to be able to see him face to face.

Now we all have to wait for the second coming of Jesus and I am ready as I speak to you through this post. No more pain. No more temptations. No more mean people around you. No more people who seek to destroy the good people. No more lying. No more stealing.

Just peace, love and praising GOD all day long and feeling the pure love coming from GOD right back at you and seeing the of GOD and his son Jesus forever! That will be the blessing above all blessings!

May a blessing come to all you read this post and share it as well too. Know you are loved by the one and only true living GOD and his beloved son Jesus.

 

Peace!

Ephesians 4:31 – 4:32

friendship 2018

Ephesians chapter 4 verses 31 and 32.

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice

32 And be ye kind one to another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Recently I have seen two Christian gentlemen end a long friendship over a simple misunderstanding. Both men are stubborn and I have known them both for years. It just does not make sense to me as to how two people who do need to talk to each other on the basis of encouraging each other as only people who love the LORD can.

This new post is to show you that no one is perfect and those who think Christians are, you are very wrong. We are in the flesh as well as the rest of mankind. Those of us who seek after the LORD, love the LORD and have a communication with the LORD still will make mistakes in life . We need JESUS as the rest of all mankind does.

Those that hate the LORD and want nothing to do with HIM will always say mean things about people of faith to try to bring us down a notch or two to proudly say “See, I told you they were like that!” The evil hearted seek to destroy us at any given time for any reason. They will twist things/words around , or lie so as to turn those who see what we go through maybe discouraged into following JESUS. We should not do this to other true GOD fearing Christians.

My point is if you love JESUS you will take the time to see what the cause of the misunderstanding is. Not to sit back and point the finger. I have seen people get angry over things as simple as when you THINK a person sees you in a crowd or group setting and they should speak first. Do you always wait to see the person you know speak first? How do you KNOW for sure if they saw you and are just ignoring you? Have they done this sort of thing to you before or more than once? Think about it. If they have not then are you getting angry with them over something that is uncalled for?

angry christian man 2018

Why wait for people to speak first? They maybe going through something that you may not see because you are thinking about yourself right now. And this is the point I am trying to make with this post.

When you have been a friend and a good friend with someone, and they are not being themselves then something is wrong. Take the time to figure it out. Sometimes it take prayer to gain the wisdom we need to see whats going on. Put the pride aside and seek GOD for answers. Don’t use the Bible as a tool to insult or control people in a harsh way. You will not gain your friend’s attention that way especially if they are going through a “trial” already. You know all well and good , we all will have our trials and tests of faith. You do not need to add to it.

 

Angry-young-Christian-man

 

No one wants to be called names or accuse of anything they are not doing. Remember who is GOD and who will be passing judgement when the time comes. This will be done for all mankind. Those of us who do love the LORD and those who don’t. I would hate to see anyone who was blamed for anything they did not do. Friends confront each other face to face. This is Biblical.

Matthew 5:21-24 (ESV)

“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to   judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire. 23 So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

As fellow believers in Christ, we have become brothers and sisters in the family God and fellow members of the body of Christ. We are individual members, yet we are one in Christ.

It is hard to not be angry with a person until you give it to the LORD for HIM to help. It is impossible to be able to handle a hurt by your self. It is the sin that made you angry, not the person themselves. Because they have judged you falsely which is not a good thing, then hurt you as well by the actions they did. Be it verbally or whatever. That’s like the expression throwing the bathed baby out with the bath water.

Ending a friendship is never a happy experience at all. But you sometimes need to when you clash with those not of the body of Christ. This site at “Beyond today” will get more into this at this link.

https://www.ucg.org/vertical-thought/ending-a-friendship

I even looked up friendship on Wikipedia too. This is something to think about before you cancel out someone.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friendship

men of prayer

Picture is from : http://www.poccc.org/ministries/life-builders/men-of-honor-ministry/

 

I know when I head off to work there is a spiritual clash/warfare going on in there. Friendship is made with “birds of a feather and they flock together.” Instead of all of us adult people aiming to be polite and get our work done for the company there are people there who do not love GOD or HIS people and can sense us as soon as we walk into a room. We seem to spoil their day by being there to earn a living. Sad.

Keep your faith and allow your friend a chance to open up to you. For if you have known them for years, like 10 or more there is some there that you don’t see for some reason you are over looking. If they have never ever done them wrong do not do this person wrong either. The Bible speaks about conflict. Here are some verses on the seriousness of it. You can click on the link here. Have your Bible with you. There is a full-page of scripture here on “Bible online”

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Resolving-Conflict/

This year 2018 is just whizzing on by, and we do not know when JESUS will return to earth to take all of us who are in the BODY of CHRIST home to be with HIM. I tell you this is where we want to be away from all of the nonsense of this world. Why add to a persons trials by NOT doing the work of the LORD?

Prayer really does heal all things because only GOD can fix it. HE knows how we work and will make a way, HE always has for me and all of my loved ones as well. GOD will for you as well. Just leave it with GOD, don’t meddle in it, trust GOD. Trust GOD. Trust GOD, and trust GOD again staying in your trust in GOD! Your friendship will be when and if GOD sees fit.

Have a blessed Easter!

 

For he has risen 2018

Good morning to all! I do pray that you all will have a blessed Easter Sunday! For this is the day that the LORD has made! I am so grateful to see another day that our GOD has made for us.

Today is the celebration of the sacrifice that our beloved Jesus has given on the cross to save our souls. Jesus is the only key to heavens gates. And this is so cool, for we know that he has paid the price for all of the sins we all have done in our lives. For not one human can ever go and say they have never sinned. Not one, so this s why we all need JESUS!

Romans 3:23

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

 

Just think, we don’t have to do any works to get into heaven, no favors, nothing but faith and trust in GOD and JESUS! Trusting in the LORD for all of our needs 24/7. You can have peace knowing that GOD sent HIS only begotten son here to earth to suffer and die for all of us who do believe in Him.

Thank  you dear JESUS for saving my soul! Thank you for letting me know that in the end all of us who do have faith in you and believe in you will have everlasting peace. I just sit back and smile knowing so.

No more heart ache and pain, no more mean people who come about to do evil to other people at any given time, no more death, to be with the LORD GOD in HIS heaven with HIS beloved son JESUS!

Heaven is where all good dwells and there is absolutely no evil! Yes! No sin and people who love sin around you. No temptations and weaknesses of the flesh for we will be all spirit enjoying all that is good from GOD the Father and creator of all heaven and earth.

Awesome.

For this is what JESUS has done for us. To make a way for all who do love Him to get into heaven from all of the suffering He went through as a man here on earth! When you look at Mel Gibson’s movie “The Passion of the Christ ” it will show you as an example of what JESUS had gone through in His short years on this earth to save all of mankind on the cross. But I do want to make this point, whatever color skin you believe JESUS to be pay more attention to what was done to save our souls. Because the meaning and purpose of JESUS coming is most important. You can tell what color JESUS is when He returns for sure besides reading the scripture in the Bible, and studying the history and locations given in the Bible.

Just keep your faith in JESUS, and not the lies given by man to confuse those who do not study the word and turn away from it. This is what will trip you up and distract you from the real truth. Our souls need peace and to be with a loving GOD, HIS son JESUS and all of the angels in heaven!

There is no one that can do what our JESUS did as a man here on earth to save all of mankind. JESUS is without sin, pure, right by GOD. All of the pain and suffering we caused JESUS to go through on the cross. Because of our weaknesses of the flesh. All of it was paid for us 1,985 years ago in Judea from when JESUS died at 33 years old from what I understand. Golgotha “The place of the skull”. Matthew 27:33

One post by a Christian site called “Christians standing with Israel ” gave some information on the location of the crucifixion here at this link. Always when looking things up have your Bible with you. Everyone has their own interpretation of what they have learned and may not be 100% even with the best intentions. Including me.

http://www.christians-standing-with-israel.org/where-was-jesus-crucified.html

So now knowing the tremendous things GOD has done with HIS son JESUS to save us because they love us so, why not listen to what they are saying and seek after them? Get your faith on and find peace. There is no sin that once you come to JESUS and leave that sin alone, love and follow JESUS…that you can not be forgiven. If you do not believe me, just ask JESUS.

Find a quiet place to yourself with absolutely no distractions and talk to JESUS. He will not lie. Ever.

May you all have a blessing from the reading of this word and sharing it with others.

Peace!

Sundays breaking of the bread. Families bonding through food and prayer.

Raisin Bread 2018 2

Hello everyone. I want to share with you the thought of a long gone tradition of Sunday dinner. Some of us are still blessed to be able to share it with relatives that would travel to see you and share that special meal. And this is a good thing.

What the delicious meal was , it was a way to bind with the family a special way no other human relationships did for me. As a child, it was all cooked by my grandmother who made everything from scratch and very time-consuming to prepare.

Family would come in and smell the food and begin to salivate. Hugging and kissing each other from not seeing each other for so long. We always had the LORD in all we said and did. And when the meal was on the table we all went in to the dinning room to eat.

We sat down and held hands, bowed our heads and prayed. Giving thanks to God for the safe trip to and for the blessing of the meal, and the cook. My beloved grandmother.

Acts 2:46 English Standard Version (ESV)

46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts,

As we live in a new era where things are not the same as it were even ten years ago, both parents have to work because of the cost of things going up so high. My both of parents worked too. And my point today is that we need to find time to pry together at our meals at home. Making these Sunday meals special for the children to remember and understand these traditions. And if you don’t have time to cook, eat out and say grace over your food there and in your car back home mention bible verses that pertain to this bonding.

John 6:35 English Standard Version (ESV)

35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.

Children seem to remember scripture better with food when you mention bread…then they will remember the scripture with bread in it. Like they know about the homemade bread that Mom or Dad made, and will link the two together.

Deuteronomy 12:7 English Standard Version (ESV)

And there you shall eat before the Lord your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your households, in all that you undertake, in which the Lord your God has blessed you.

You can even if you have the time get into making bread that you and the children will help you with, and while it is baking go over some scripture to help them to memorize the word. Here is a site’s link to some scripture you might what to use:

Raisin Bread 2018 4

This is my homemade bread in the “rise” mode on my “Breadman” bread machine. While this is doing its thing, I am able to multi-task. You can get these at yard sales or thrift shops for $5.

Raisin Bread 2018 3

Bread is done and is going on a cooling rack before cutting in to slices. I am giving you the recipe I used to make this so you will be able to make and share bread with your family too. This is for a bread maker machine. I think it can be converted to a traditional oven as well. But you will have to hand knead it, and depending on your elevation how moist the dough should be. This machine will maker your dough alone and you can put the dough into your oven at 350. Not all recipes are the same for each bread machine. So be aware.

Makes 1-1/2 pound loaf

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

3/4 cup warm water

1 egg

1 TBS spoon of butter or oil

2 -2/3 cups of all-purpose flour

3 TBS dry milk

2 TBS sugar

1/3 cup raisins

1 -1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp salt

1- 1/2 tsp dry yeast

Let the bread cool on cookie racks before cutting it. Enjoy your bread.

 

1 Corinthians 10:31 English Standard Version (ESV)

31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

As our kids grow up and are in the world with secular distractions around them and us, we need to encourage our children and make sure they stay in the word to keep the bonds not only with us the parents,  but with our GOD.

May you havea blessing for the reading of this word and sharing it as well. Pass it forward. Have a good day in the Lord.

 

Peace!
