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

Good Sunday morning to you all, or what ever time it is for you right now!

Many families now a days spend their time away from each other during the weekdays and the weekends they catch up and have a good meal at the table with each other. But when they are grown and have to take on their own responsibilities as adults….things might change and so enjoy your times together when you can.

My baked veggies in some butter.

I enjoy praying and reading the scripture with my family and then having a good meal. Being filled with the peaceful spirit of the LORD and a full tummy is a total feeling of peace and comfort for me.

My grandmother was an excellent cook and no one I know can or could have cooked as well as she could. When we had family dinners , relatives we have not seen for a while would come and leave full. I remember seeing the men eat so much that they sat in the living room loosening their belts and then falling asleep. Everyone was a hard worker and when we all got together it was either in the church or at the house catch up on things.

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.

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.

By the time dessert was ready to be eaten, most of the family was content feeling, but when “the eyes are bigger than the tummy” things lead to the belt loosening thing and falling asleep in the living room.

Everyone said my Grandmom was a good cook. But you can tell that when she didn’t have any leftovers to speak of to put away. My Grandma was a good woman who loved the LORD and raised up her kids to do the same.

Hebrews 10:25

25. Not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near

Enjoy your new year with those who truly do love you and look out for you. Do not associate with those who envy you and say evil things about you when you are not around. They do not share the heart of JESUS and share the heart of the evil one. It doesnt matter if they are family. For they are people and make their own choices on how they want to live. With GOD the FATHER as the lead, or the fallen one who is lost.

You need no distractions on you path to righteousness. None.

Be joyful, encourage others and particularly for others who are followers of JESUS. For they maybe going through a trail that is weighing them down and you may not even be aware of it. if you are being to self centered at the moment to not see it. Not everyone physically shows what they are going through, nor speak about to others. They may keep things to themselves as they are going through what they are going through.

Enjoy your meal with your family, loved ones, and friends. May this blog post encourage you and bless you as you read and share the word of GOD. #passitforward!

 

Peace!

Listening to Jane Elliott. We need to s top the hate! part 2

jane elliott 2019Ms. Jane Elliott

 

Years ago I have seen on a Oprah TV show a small and serious-minded woman tell about the ideas of this society as it is. She held no punches about what is known to us all as racial hate towards people who don’t look like the people who are starting all of this non-sense of racial division.

I have for the first time in my life to hear a white person say the things she did that touched my heart to let me know she KNEW what it was that people of color was feeling. It is a hurtful thing, abusive, immoral thing that many white people who are lost in this hate and white privilege. She said all of the things many Black people have been saying and many who wanted to say about how we are treated globally.

Her name is Jane Elliott.

jane elliott 2019 2 2019

Here are some of the links I have found regarding Ms Elliott:

https://janeelliott.com/

Here she is explaing we are all one race of people.Which is very true since the creation of Adam and Eve. SHe has a mission on getting rid of racial hate. I agree and would like to think I am doing my part as well as a fellow human being who loves GOD the Father!

Here are more links written about her from other people…

Just so you know, as much as 79% of the world’s population has brown eyes according to World Atlas 11/5/18.  The color break down is in more detail at this link: https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/which-eye-color-is-the-most-common-in-the-world.html.  I did not think about how many people had brown eyes until the eye test was done by Ms Elliott on the Oprah show.

 

The first time I have heard of Ms. Elliott when I was growing was awesome. It showed me that there was a White person that understood what was going on in this world to cause so much strife and division amongst the people. How she was trying to put an end to it. How she saw this as wrong. I cried. I cried because this let me know that there are is a person who thinks like I do but who does not actually have to deal with other people’s ignorance.

Matthew 22:36-40 King James Version (KJV)

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Even though Ms. Elliott is not a Pastor….she is teaching a good bibical lesson as it is written in Matthew 22:36-40.
May you all be blessed from reading and sharing this blog and the word of GOD.

Avoid negative people. 1Peter 5:8

negativity 2017

Picture from “purehappylife.com”

Hello everyone, I do pray that you all will have a blessed and happy new year of 2019! May GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS always keep watch over you and all of your loved ones wherever you all maybe on GODS earth!

I want to share something with you about starting your new year off with joy and peace. We need to think about the different people we come across in our travels from year to week to days and so on.

During your course of the day , of any day in your life you will meet a negative person who just seems to maybe even enjoy being negative. These people we should pray for avoid and move on.

You may have even tried to show them about being negative is not good way to be, by being positive.  You know, telling them good things, showing them the blessings in life and all they seem to come up with is a complaint or something negative. as if to turn their backs on joy.

I know many people who are suffering with this negative mindset, and I do feel sorry for them even though I do know this is a choice they have made to be.

Anyone can feel depressed at any given time, but to dwell on it is not good. It will keep you down. Until only the LORD to throw a rope to them up and out into a wonderful perfect blessing!

King David in the Bible who wrote the Psalms dealt with negativity and by reading the Psalms you do see how much he did love GOD and depended on GOD to pull him up.  GOD did just that, and he always did.

You see the trails he went through in his time of life is no different from what we as the people of today go through right now. He had his haters too, that sought after him to destroy him. When you are a loving child of GOD this is what happens every single day when you have to work or be around those who are un GODLY and hate GOD. They will see that there is something different about you and will hate you too.

Matthew 16:24

1.Then said  Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Even if you have recently been saved and now love GOD and HIS son JESUS, those people you once called as a friend will now turn against you. Hating you, because now you are different to them. They can sense it in you. You are now covered with the blood of JESUS and do have Him in your heart.

Matthew 24:9

Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

What you will need to do now is to see that were you were is not where you needed to be. Those people who you once associated with will not want you around them. For their heart is not like yours now since you have accepted JESUS as your savior.

Prayer, faith , trust, understanding and making GOD your 1st best friend in your life who is THE perfect best friend to have and HIS son JESUS is 2nd because he is the son who came after the FATHER GOD in heaven. That’s how it is for me, and I am very comfortable with that too. You will see you can not depend on people, or things of the world to find your joy, for it is in the LORD. You will never be alone of feel alone when you will see that you have two very, very, very good loving friends with you at all times in your life.

Here is a site with even more scripture to read that is encouraging. For we follow the lead of JESUS our savior.

John 15:18-27 King James Version (KJV)

1If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.

23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.

24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.

25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

27 And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.

 

Just remember….

Revelation 21:4

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Please be safe as you may choose to celebrate the new year, keep GOD 1st in all you do. Blessed as you read this blog and GODs scripture included, and pass forward the blessing to others to read as well.

Pray for Illnesses and Healing.

illness 2017

In this time of year, I am concerned for those who are forgotten. Those who are without, those who suffer from things that they can not control and only GOD can heal.

We who are basically healthy and have the things that we want and need, are sometimes caught up in the responsibilities of our days. We go about getting out things done as best as we can. Sometimes we may forget about those that are going through an illness be it physical or mental.

I ask that we who are doing well to pray for our fellow mankind who are not well, and for those who need prayer to ask our LORD GOD for help as we all pray together. The power of prayer is very strong when you have the combination of faith and trust in the LORD GOD and listen and hear what HE is telling us.

 

James 5:15 Context

12But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. 13Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. 14Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. 17Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. 18And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. Here is more scripture to read regarding healing at this links below. I want to make sure that all who do read this will understand the power of healing.

When you are not well , and are going with the pains and illness that you have right now…staying in prayer and giving it to our GOD is the first step. Our faith and trusting in GOD to answer and correct what is wrong is faith too. We all need healing at some point in time in our lives.

I feel with the power of us all who read this , we should pray for all of the people who are going through something that only our loving FATHER GOD can fix! So with this thought let us all pray for all of the people we know be it family, friend or acquaintances to get the healing they need to enjoy their lives without pain!

 

 

I pray for you all!

I pray that you all will get the healing and the blessing of this healing for all that is within you physically and mentally so that you all will live a healthy, happy, JESUS filled life. And to pass it forward on the prayer and healing for all of the people you do know who are ill right now too! In JESUS name I ask. Amen!

Pass forward your blessing of healing from the LORD to everyone and let all know it is from the LORD who gave it to you! And may all who share this blog post be blessed for sharing and reading it as well! GOD bless!

Why don’t you love Him?

Jesus loves you 12-16-18

 

Good morning everyone, I do pray that you are having a blessed day so far. I want you all to know that JESUS loves you.

When GOD sent JESUS to earth it was because GOD loved us first, and wants us all to know this through HIS beloved son.

When we think of the trials and tribulations that we humans suffer with and go through, just remember what our beloved JESUS went through but on a much higher scale of torment.

He came to earth, even before he was born there were men that sought after him to kill him. As a child he knew he was to do the will of HIS FATHER who sent HIM. To be an example of goodness and righteousness for all mankind. To teach us the will of GOD through HIS loving laws to guide us through this fallen world of sin. Like a map or formula to be safe and happy with GOD in our lives at all times in this fallen world. To have GODS son as the mediator between GOD and man so we can be with GOD for all eternity. We mankind cannot make it into heaven any other way.

JESUS was not respected by all mankind. For there were some that resented JESUS telling the truth as to how we should live so we would know. But yet those who do not want to listen will do things in their own way and wonder why their way is not working for them.

No one man can ever love mankind the way JESUS did when he walked the face of the earth doing GOD’s will! We all need to study beginning right now what JESUS came to earth for. And praise GOD for sending JESUS!

And to thank JESUS for the sacrifice HE did give for our very souls.

How he was treated by mankind back in that time, lied to, lied on, beaten, hated, disrespected, cheated, sort after to be killed and other things we don’t know about that was done to our beloved JESUS as He came to save our souls.

I am so grateful for the sacrifice that JESUS  gave on the cross. JESUS gave the sacrifice, those people then who crucified or LORD did not understand at all what they were doing.

 

I love JESUS 12-16-18

I love you dear JESUS with all of my heart, mind soul and strength now forever and for all of eternity long. Thank you dear JESUS for saving my soul! I need you at all times, now and for all of eternity long. Thank you JESUS for all that you have done for me!

Blessings for the rich, or “rewards”?

beatitudes

I  had a conversation with a person the other day about how they don’t understand how God will give other people on this earth more than others. I do not have all of the answers.  Only GOD knows our hearts. But I can tell you what I have learned from my elders and what the Bible will lead me to say in this regard.

Our started the conversation over how we see so many people who do not have the money to buy all of the things they truly need and forget about what they want. Some people have so much wealth that they could never spend it all in a lifetime of normal living. There are those that are so in love with money they will do what they need to do to keep it, forgetting about the consequences of it all.

I Googled the word “opulence” to see what the definition was to make sure I was correct.

op·u·lence
ˈäpyələns/
noun
noun: opulence; plural noun: opulences
  1. great wealth or luxuriousness.
    “rooms of spectacular opulence”

    Synonyms:
    luxuriousness, sumptuousness, lavishness, richness, luxury, luxuriance, splendor, magnificence, grandeur, splendidness; informal plushness, classiness, ritziness, poshness, swankiness
    “the opulence of the room”
    ealth, affluence, wealthiness, richness, riches, prosperity, money
    “a display of opulence”
    Antonyms:
    simplicity, restraint, poverty

    op·u·lence

The LORD knows for sure how we all obtain our money. The LORD knows how people will feel about the money that they earn, meaning if they love it more than life itself. Like it says in the Bible.

1 Timothy 6:10

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” 

King James Version (KJV)

Greed and power seeking people have a lot to do with this situation as they seek great wealth and power creating ways to take minerals from the earth for fuel. Which leads to people need fuel will have to pay them for it.

Mark 10:25

It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.” 

King James Version (KJV)

My understanding as I was told growing up, was that some people are blessed with what GOD gives to them for all of their needs and wants. Such as when we say things like,

“God blessed us with a good life!”

“That was a blessing to get a house like this that we can afford!”

“God blessed us with healing!”

I can go on and on about the blessings we need to count on for their are many. And we all should thank GOD for what HE blesses us with too.

But when I was told further about why was the difference between blessings and rewards, the rewards would go to the wicked by the demon that they serve for doing wicked things. Leading people away from GOD and doing blasphemous things.

These people who are rich and do not do GOD’s will as one good man I have heard say when I was a child, “This maybe the only heaven they will ever see.”

When you think about it, this could be true. Living the rich life and pushing GOD out of your life will come a fall. This could very well be just that if GOD sees fit. With this thought in mind, we do not need to envy anyones wealth and prosperity ever. For if what the elder had said to me being true about rich people being rewarded by the devil?  You do not want to step into anything they do for they dont see what they are doing and may not care either.

.melania_trump_gold_baby_carriage_trump_tower_older

 

When we see pictures of people with excess, do not be envious of what they have. When we seek after the ways of GOD and HIS wonderful laws and plans for us we will do well. For what ever these rich people have here on earth , we will have better than we will ever expect to have once we are allowed into heaven to stay in the presence of GOD . his beloveded son and all of the angels there of. For all will be made by GOD and HIS will for us there in heaven.

 

John 14:2 King James Version (KJV)

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

King James Version (KJV)

 

GOD will never lie. GOD is fair, and loving. So as we do good here on earth we will wait on GOD to send JESUS so we all who love HIM will have our mansions there in heaven, our blessing to be there for all of eternity long.

May GOD bless all for reading the word of GOD and this blog post, and blessings for sharing this blog and the site as well. Have a blessed day that the LORD has made

Jesus is the reason for the ALL seasons!

black baby Jesus in manger 2018

Be it a summer’s day with the sun brightly shinning, or an icy cold dreary winters night our JESUS is the true meaning of all seasons. He is the son of the one and only true living GOD. He was sent to earth by GOD to save the souls of all mankind. ALL of mankind , not just a chosen few as how some of us humans may think. But when it rains it rains on all people, the good and the bad.

As we get closer to the day of celebration for the birth of JESUS as a man here on earth, I see some of us do get into the Christmas spirit. Kids smile more with a bounce to their step for the anticipation of the gifts they hope to get. Some people smile more and even more polite than they usually are.

We all should have this same JESUS spirit, the feeling of Christmas cheer at all times because JESUS is with us at all times. Not just because it is 23 days before Christmas day 2018.

I have noticed as the years go by that there are less and less shows on about the real meaning of Christmas. There is nothing about JESUS in any of them. There are shows on TV about a man wearing a red suit called Kris Kringle or “Saint” Nick, a reindeer with a red nose and even a green thing called the Grinch. Nothing about JESUS and salvation. The major TV networks have with even in just 10 years ago had the true meaning of Christmas for at least one movie or TV show.

This is one of the reasons why some people do not care about Christmas as they used to or should, forgetting about it. Spending all of their attention and money on the devils day called halloween. Pushing JESUS right out of their life. I have heard more than once people say they have spent all of their money on halloween and have nothing left for Christmas ,the celebration of our LORD JESUS. And will say that Christmas is too commercialized. But halloween is not?

The devil has tricked many people to do the very same thing, spend all of your energy on halloween so that you would be distracted from honoring JESUS. This is not a good way to be, for we all do need to know who comes first in all we do.

  • GOD the FATHER and creator of all heaven and earth comes first in all we do.

Matthew 6:33

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

King James Version (KJV)

  • GOD the FATHER sent HIS only begotten son JESUS here on earth to save our souls.

    John 3:16 King James Version (KJV)

    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.

  • JESUS could have saved his self and not go through the torture and sacrifice that he lovingly gave for all of mankind.

    Matthew 26:50-56

    50And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him. 51And, behold, one of them which were with Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his sword, and struck a servant of the high priest’s, and smote off his ear. 52Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. 53Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels? 54But how then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be? 55In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me. 56But all this was done, that the scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled. Then all the disciples forsook him, and fled.

                                                                   King James Version (KJV)

See, reading the word of GOD is comforting, and will give to those who seek after HIM the love, guidance , and protection we need. Once you read the scriptures you will see how much our GOD in heaven and all of the earth loves us so!

GOD sent HIS only begotten son JESUS to earth to save all of us from the lies that the devil has given to ALL mankind. Starting from the first two people to walk the earth Adam and Eve.

Let not all that our JESUS has gone through be in vain, show the gratitude all year, all day and all times. JESUS is my savior and yours. Read what JESUS has gone through in the Bible for all of us mankind.

1 Peter 3:18

“For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:”

King James Version (KJV)

Luke 22:63-23:12 New King James Version (NKJV)

Jesus Mocked and Beaten

63 Now the men who held Jesus mocked Him and beat Him. 64 [a]And having blindfolded Him, they struck Him on the face and asked Him, saying, “Prophesy! Who is the one who struck You?” 65 And many other things they blasphemously spoke against Him.

Jesus bloody on the cross 2018

Jesus Faces the Sanhedrin

66 As soon as it was day, the elders of the people, both chief priests and scribes, came together and led Him into their council, saying, 67 “If You are the Christ, tell us.”

But He said to them, “If I tell you, you will by no means believe. 68 And if I [b]also ask you, you will by no means answer [c]Me or let Me go.69 Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the right hand of the power of God.”

70 Then they all said, “Are You then the Son of God?”

So He said to them, “You rightly say that I am.”

71 And they said, “What further testimony do we need? For we have heard it ourselves from His own mouth.”

Jesus Handed Over to Pontius Pilate

23 Then the whole multitude of them arose and led Him to Pilate. And they began to accuse Him, saying, “We found this fellow perverting [d]the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ, a King.”

Then Pilate asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?”

He answered him and said, It is as you say.”

So Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowd, “I find no fault in this Man.”

But they were the more fierce, saying, “He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee to this place.”

Jesus Faces Herod

When Pilate heard [e]of Galilee, he asked if the Man were a Galilean. And as soon as he knew that He belonged to Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time. Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad; for he had desired for a long time to see Him, because he had heard many things about Him, and he hoped to see some miracle done by Him. Then he questioned Him with many words, but He answered him nothing. 10 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused Him. 11 Then Herod, with his [f]men of war, treated Him with contempt and mocked Him, arrayed Him in a gorgeous robe, and sent Him back to Pilate. 12 That very day Pilate and Herod became friends with each other, for previously they had been at enmity with each other.

After GOD, who else will love us this much, to go through this much and give up his life for all of mankind?

I don’t know of anyone who could do exactly what our JESUS has done. JESUS is a perfect example as how to live on earth and the savior of all mankind. Let us always respect JESUS for what HE did every single season, month, day, hour and second of our lives.

May a blessing be on all who read this blog, and who share and pass it forward to the next person to be blessed with the reading of GOD’s word with in the blog.

Peace!
