Hello everyone, I pray that all is well and you will have a blessed day in church if you decide to go.

I came about a church that is in the ground made hundreds of years ago if not more. And this has fascinated me. It is carved in to the ground. I can not imagine doing this kind of work back then.

Here are some pictures of the Church. Not understanding as to why the men back then thought to make the church there, it is still a wonder.

I just thought this was cool. I don’t know how many of you have seen this site, but love the ways that people back in that day used the knowledge and talent they had to worship GOD.

Have blessed day in the LORD. Stay in prayer, keep reading the word of GOD to gain wisdom against those who will try to tell you false truths about our beloved GOD and HIS son JESUS.

Peace!!!

Hebrews 13:4. Marriage is honorable!

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

Hebrews 13:4

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

King James Version (KJV)

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

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

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

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

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

Ephesians 5:25:

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

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

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

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

John 8:3-11 King James Version (KJV)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Peace!!!!

Feeding the soul with the word of GOD.

Good morning everyone!

Have you eaten yet?

Trying to feed that void that you have in you with the ways of the world will leave empty. Having no satisfaction at all. Not really feeling happy at what the flesh has you doing through the temptations of the world, making you feel sceptical and what appears to be good when it could truly be a good thing. The evil one lied to many people and confused many people into thinking this way.

Falling back into the rut of the feeling of the flesh and not the soul. Our souls are weak without the word and prayer. Without depending on the LORD GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS to guide us through all of this deception, lies and confusion of the whole world.

Those who feed the flesh, walking around without the light of the LORD to guide their steps. Jealous of those who want to seek after the LORD, walk in HIS wonderful light!

GOD is loving and has unconditional love for you and me. Some scripture here at this link too. https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Encouragement/

Mankind has standards that is set made for all humans to abide by or you are considered “outcast” or not qualified to associate with those who do fit those false stands of conditions. Such as looks, money, where you live, how you dress, where you are assumed to come from.

Because of feeding the flesh we can cause all kinds of harm to ourselves or to others.

Let us begin to feed our souls with the word of GOD to clean our minds of the nonsense of this fallen world we struggle to live in.

2 Timothy 1:7

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Lean on GOD. HE tells you the truth. There is no way GOD wants us all to fail. HE sent HIS son JESUS here on this earth to lead us to salvation and freedom from the sins we have done our whole lives long!

Psalms 37:4

“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”

Depending on the LORD will not have you disappointed because the LORD will do what is right for you. We just need to listen to what the LORD is saying once we pray.

Mark 11:24

“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”

Have a blessed day in the word of GOD and let it fill your soul full! Thank you for taking the time to read this blog. Please pass it forward for we do not know who may need a boast of encouragement too.

Peace!!!

Isaiah 55:8-9

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

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

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

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

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

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

Isaiah 55:8-9 (KJV)

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

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

King James Version 

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

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

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

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

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

Peace!!

The Apocalypse? Just keep your faith and stay in prayer.

Matthew 24:36

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”

King James Version (KJV)

Good morning everyone, I do pray that you all will have a blessed day in the LORD, for this is another day that HE has made for us all.

The Apocalypse, Armageddon and the Rapture. Many of us who love the LORD GOD sincerely are waiting for JESUS to return so we can have an eternity of peace!

I have heard many who have little faith say things about the apocalypse coming and to be ready for it. How they are stocking up on guns, weapons, food , water and al medical supplies. So that they will be prepared for the fall of the economy when money is useless. There are alot of tv shows that show peoples and family living off of the “Grid” as they call it waiting for the apocalypse with secular understanding though.

It is surprising how when these people say these things how bizarre it sounds. If they have red the Bible they would know that all of that preparation will be useless as JESUS cracks open the sky to take the righteous back home with HIM.

Yes there is evil about us, but still we need to keep focus on what the Bible says about the end times and not what the world will come up with. Which is pure confusion of the mind.

Those of us who live by the spirit and not of the flesh and have a JESUS heart will be safe and sound with the LORD and need not concern ourselves at all. Ever.

JESUS is not messing around, we need to rethink about what we are doing in the flesh.

Those of us who love and seek after peace will have it when were are taken to be with the LORD.

Matthew 5:9 King James Version (KJV)

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.(KJV)

Romans 15:13

“Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”

King James Version (KJV)

Stay in prayer and fear not about what goes on in the world. These things need to happen so that JESUS can return and take all who are good with HIM.

Thank you for reading my post, and the scripture in it. I do hope that you will be encouraged by it and it will give you peace of mind and blessings. Pass it forward so others can read it and be blessed as well too!

Peace!



New Years Resolutions.

Good morning and many blessings to you this new year!

A co worker asked me while we were clocking into work, “What’s your new year resolution for 2020?” I answered by saying “I don’t have any.” That is something I may done once or twice growing up. By now as an adult, lost interest. I will say it is less of stress to not put yourself thru something like that.

Which then gave me a curious mindset to wonder why people go through making these kinds of “promises” or goals.

From what I have learned that is an ancient Babylionan thing of worship to thier gods.

https://www.history.com/news/the-history-of-new-years-resolutions

Babylonians made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts. The Romans began each year by making promises to the god Janus, for whom the month of January is named.

Now from the mindset of a Christian who knows there is only one GOD, the goal to having success in any goal is to know we can not make it without our GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS our savior. I know I can not for sure!

Luke 1:37


“For with God nothing shall be impossible.”

King James Version (KJV)

If we do not ask GOD to lead us and we so things in the flesh and not the spirit then we are in a position where we can fail. Look at how the Babylonians failed from praying to false gods.

There is only one and only true living GOD who is the creator of all heaven and earth. Period. With GOD we can succeed. Here are some Bible verses to encourage you as only the word can.

Make depending on GOD as your New Years Resolution forever!

Bible Verses About All Things Are Possible with GOD!

Matthew 19:26 – But Jesus beheld [them], and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Luke 1:37 – For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Mark 10:27 – And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men [it is] impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

Mark 9:23 – Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things [are] possible to him that believeth.

Matthew 17:20 – And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Isaiah 41:10 – Fear thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed; for I [am] thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

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].

Luke 18:27 – And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

Jeremiah 32:17 – Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, [and] there is nothing too hard for thee:

Romans 8:31 – What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?

Job 42:2 – I know that thou canst do every [thing], and [that] no thought can be withholden from thee.

Genesis 18:14 – Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

Jeremiah 32:27 – Behold, I [am] the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?

Isaiah 46:10 – Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times [the things] that are not [yet] done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Proverbs 3:6 – In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Keep your life simple. Follow GOD’s plan. You will have no stress from letting GOD lead you in your needs. Let this be your resolution for this new year and for all of the new years to come. Joy is in the LORD GOD and accepting HIS son JESUS as savior.

Babylon fell from avoiding GOD. Jeremiah chapter 51 speaks of it plainly. Let us learn from the mistakes that they have made in Babylon and not follow them.

I pray that you all will have a blessed 2020 and beyond. Thank you for reading my posts and liking them as well too. please do feel free to share them to encourage all you do know. For we do not know when JESUS will return to bring all saints back home!


Peace!

The best psychotherapist for us all. JESUS!

John 16:13 English Standard Version (ESV)

13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.

Good morning everyone. I do pray that you all are well and warm from the cold if you live in the colder weather. Where I live it can get as cold as a single digit or below zero once in awhile.

It was like this yesterday with the single digit! But we made it through. Thank GOD for that!

Many times we all will go through something that we will raise our eyes up to the heavens and seek GOD’s help. We need HIS direction, guidance and counseling. I do know I do need GOD’s guidance at all times. Even if I feel I can make it on my own unintentionally going about my day. I have to stop and think about what I am doing.

I do not want to leave GOD out of what I do for any reason, in anything that I do really. For we know that we will have to answer to all thoughts and actions we do in this life as we stand before our JESUS.

There is no sure confirmed counseling I know of that will see us through in the righteous direction that is GOD approved. Going to another human who does not have the HOLY SPIRIT in them will cause you to be distracted from GOD.

Many people who are educated counselors, psychotherapists, or physiatrists do NOT believe in GOD and are not saved. So how can an unsaved person lead you in the right direction? They can not, for the right direction is to follow the ways of GOD’s laws.

John 1:14 English Standard Version (ESV)

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son[a] from the Father, full of grace and truth.

We all need the moral teachings of our GOD to be able to stay on track with our loving GOD. If we do not we wind up off the road into the wilderness of trouble. Lost and turned round.

Picture is from the site: https://parade.com/63160/marilynvossavant/youre-lost-in-the-woods-which-direction-should-you-walk/

When you are alone like this in the wilderness, who would you call? Calling out to another person who is lost will only mean that the two of you are lost together.

John 15:26 English Standard Version (ESV)

26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me.

GOD’s words are true. GOD is not a man that HE should lie. GOD has sent a helper to me many of times. I go to the LORD GOD first with all of my concerns. And I have to wait fr the LORD to give me an answer. I so do need the LORD GOD to guide me for HE is all knowing.

I do understand that many people seek advice from other people and not our GOD. But do consider this

Let our loving GOD always lead you out of the wilderness, and back onto the path of righteousness forever.

Thank you for reading this blog, and many blessings to you as also are free to share this post. Pass it forward so others can receive the blessings and GOD’s word as well too!

Peace!!!
