Isaiah 26:20-21

I used Picfont.com to put the scripture on the picture. 3/28/2020

Hello everyone, I do pray that you all are well and do not have that covi19 thing that is going about. If you are inside and shut in from it, I do pray that you are reading the word and trying to get as much joy and love from reading the word to give you the comfort you need.

For the true peace and love you will have is thru our beloved savior JESUS knowing you have given your life to JESUS and accepted HIM as your savior!

John 14:6

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

King James Version (KJV)

Those of us who are believers are being drawn together more so now. And with the same mindset about this pandemic being a warning.

You know the Bible warns, guides us all righteously when we take the time to read it. All in a loving way too, for it is the word of GOD.

More and more people are taking about our beloved God and His wonders and power. Many related this latest pandemic as a warning. It is good Christian people are coming together as well as those who are now seeking God

I used Picfont.com to put the scripture on this picture.

We mankind are stubborn at times when we want our way and not GOD’s and then get angry with him when we can see that our way is not working.

There are closings of schools until the end of the year and only online courses are given. Churches are shut down, businesses, people losing jobs and so on and so on. When you see these places being shut down, affected maybe shut because of what we are doing is not with the lord GOD in it. I see the bars being shut down as well as some Churches.

This virus has shown me people who mention praying to GOD I never expected to for they have never mentioned our loving FATHER GOD until now.

Some have the look of convection when they hear mention of the wrath of GOD who may have been used to living a life that is not cool with GOD. Giving them cause to rethink things over.

But for those of us who continually seek after the FATHER and the SON….we watch and pray and have np fear of the things happening around us. We have to remember, GOD protects those of us who truly love him at all times.

Babes/newbies in the LORD are learning this now. Those who want to know about GOD and HIS Son will.

But those who mock our warnings have made the choice to live their way and not GOD’s will suffer and see why the life they choose is not a good one. And will pay for it in the end for all eternity long. See, I do pray that all of those defiant ones will repent before it is too late.

Psalms 91:10

“There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.”

King James Version (KJV)

Stay healthy and blessed, Please pass this blog forward and thank yu very much for stopping by and reading it.

Peace!

The CORONAVIRUS disease 2019 until now.

Hello and good day to you all, I do pray that you all are well and good in these times.

We as humans of planet earth are going through a season of faith that we have not met up with in this type of confusion as I have never seen before in my life time.

For what is happening is world wide. Just like how JESUS will return and get our attention….world wide. It is this coronavirus!

As the news reports what is going on in this recession of 2020, many people have died from this coronavirus. Creating confusing and many people going through the “social distancing” as we are told by health officials to to. Being clean by washing your hands, covering your mouth when sneezing or coughing.

Wiping things down, at your desk, door knobs, no hand shaking and standing at a arms length from people.

But I tell you we need to watch and pray at all times so we can hear the warnings that our FATHER GOD is giving us all. And in this time in prayer we all need to draw and pull ourselves even closer to our FATHER GOD!

I do feel that this is just one of the warnings that GOD is giving us all as we humans persist on doing things our way and not HIS. GOD is very patient with us all. HE could have made this coronavirus something that could have wiped us all out in one week or sooner.

But we are still stubborn and not willing to listen to a PATIENT and loving GOD. Those who do not read the word of GOD are lost and most likely are the ones who cause problems for everyone else.

Those people who have become infected who do what they want with no conviction about them do not care if the way they are living right now will help to spread this virus.

The casinos, bars, movies and restaurants to name a few businesses in my state have been closing . Some have been cutting back hours at many businesses and many people have been laid off.

Even churches have closed for about 2 weeks, or only allow 10 people at a time to be in there until further notice.

But I will tell you ur GOD has given me perfect peace and HE can give it to you as well in these times.

Trusting in GOD will give you what you need to get through this warning /plague that is upon the earth. Many do not see this coronavirus as a warning but it is.

I am giving you all some scripture to read that is comforting from the word of GOD. GOD is our strong hold in these times for HIS warnings are to have us all ready to be able to get into heaven to be away from all of the trouble makers here on earth.

The trouble makers are many. They will not be in heaven with us to cause any more trouble. We will have peace away from thim.

So we must all repent and obey GOD. And where our GOD is there is peace , joy, love and to be able to look into HIS beautiful eyes and give GOD the praise and glory for loving us so. GOD sent HIS son JESUS to save us all from our sins, and to live with them both for ever.

Let GOD and JESUS be your comfort zone at all times. Read the Bible and clear your mind of the garbage that is out there that is distracting you from HIM.

Psalms
Chapter 91

1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Listen and watch the news, but don’t dwell on it in such a way that you are distracted from the word of our GOD and what he is trying to tell you. GOD comes first always.

Stay in prayer and thank you all for reading this blog and the word of GOD! Please do feel free to pass it forward to encourage others too.

Peace!

Following the right standard- GOD's!

Equally beautiful dolls I bought at Ebay recently.

Hello everyone, I do pray that you all are having a blessed day! Boy am I happy to see the weather warming up some too. For it always has the pretty flowers ready to bloom for us all.

And with this warmer weather coming , it has been said in the news that the coronavirus should soon die off as according to the rews station NPR.

I have a small business that I am working on again as to making things by hand, and collecting old dolls. I also will see the clothing of the dolls as my other job, not a hobby. Hobbies do not put food on the table. 🙂

My crocheted design I made for an 18 inch tall Pocahontas doll by Mattel. The doll I got off of Ebay.

What I have learned from the craft shows I attend in this area where I live, the dolls that are considered beautiful are the blond blue eyed ones by the white people who are even brown haired and browned eyed too! I always wondered about this.

The picture of the first two dolls together, one was considered a “princess” by calling her as such and even beautiful. But look more closely at those two. There is no difference in beauty or “princess”. They are both made from the same mold!

This seemed so silly to me. I had to post this confusion to this blog because there is a generation of older people who go about their lives spreading this kind of bigotry based on how they were raised up. This is not how GOD said to be, it is sin.

The word of GOD is very plain and clear as to the commandments.

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.

As followers of JESUS we need to think about this topic. It does not set well with GOD. It is hate, and if you think tha hate is okay in this form you are incorrect, no hate is good. And if we see people who are white abusing and hating people of color, and you are white and say nothing you are just as wrong as the person doing the evil when you could have done something to stop it. This includes people of color who see anyone of color abuse white people too.

We all will be judged before GOD in the end, all of us. Not one soul spared. Do unto others as you would have them do to YOU! Hell will have all colors of people as well as heaven.

Romans 2:11 Context

8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, 9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; 10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: 11 For there is no respect of persons with God. 12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; 13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified. 14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:

When we all die , our bodies return to the earth. We leave with what we came with. Nothing.

With what I have seen with the racial non-sense in this world, this sin will last until the return of JESUS if those who keep it going wont stop.

For those of us that had to confront this kind of evil, let it be known GOD sees this and will deal with those who do evil. They will never get away with what they do.

Stay blessed , safe, and sound. For once you gave your heart mind and soul to GOD and HIS son JESUS you will always be comforted. Feel free to pass this blog forward to those who need to read the word of GOD.

Peace!

Dress code for the LORD.

Come as you are.

Good morning all, I do hope you were able to enjoy some of the sunshine that came your way today. Even though it was cold and windy.

I see the changes in Church from the years and one of them is the way how we dress. In the past 10 years at least, I see people coming to Church wearing extra casual clothing.

At oe point I have seen people the same kind of clothing they would to walmart to shop in such as the pajama bottoms.

Even though this is people shopping, I once saw a woman wear the clothing on the right to Church one time.

Looking and dressing right for the world or for our ever loving Father in Heaven when we are in GOD’S house? I see people who dress for the world at their finest. But when it comes to going to Church they will wear sloppy clothing.

When you want to look your best for an occasion outside of Church, you will put in your best outfit. Or you will head to the mall and take all after noon to find the right outfit. Be it for a first date, job interview, or a party.

I have seen many people who are in the Oscar telecast dress overboard to stand out, go over the top to impress everyone that they have the best outfit. A rememberable outfit with all who have seen them.

But yet you wonder, if people know how some people attend Church wearing clothing that looks as though they were out digging ditches. Or just rolled out of bed wearing pajamas bottoms and a t-shirt. I have actually seen a woman wearing just that to Church too, with a sweat shirt hoodie.

It is not an age thing for many as to what age likes to dress up for church.

1 Corinthians 6:19 – 6:20

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

We all can do better as we come into the house of GOD, by showing HIM respect and not compromising for what the world wants. This is what we do when we are more eager to have people attend the Church because they don’t want to dress up.

1 Timothy 2:9

“In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;”

King James Version (KJV)

Even if you make it a point to wear one good outfit to Church, the LORD will understand that you come to pay HIM the respect and not the people around you.

If you can follow a dress code for work or school, you can honor the most high who sits upon the throne in your best best clothing for church. Save the the sloppy for at home when you have your own way in your own home.

Enjoy you Sunday at Church or fellowship with others in your house. Stay blessed and have a peaceful day! Pass it this blog post forward and share the blessing!

Everyone is someone else’s child.

James 2:8

“If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:”

King James Version (KJV)

Picture from article: https://familydoctor.org/growing-healthy-importance-starting-good-nutrition-early/

Hello everyone! Hope you all are getting ready for the warmer weather. I am ready when our FATheR GOD will send it and have our gardens to grow up beautiful and healthy!

There are so many beautiful faces in this world, or all colors shapes and sizes. Like beautiful roses in a well nourished garden stretching out to reach the sun. Like little children, the roses are reaching out for their Mom or Dads hand growing up straight and tall towards the sun.

You know what? When you see a person or people, always remember they are someone else’s child just like you. Whether they are older or younger than you are. You may wind up in a relationship at some point as a friend, coworker, spouse or just in passing through the day in your life.

They belong to a family of two other children who were their parents, and now you have crossed paths. Hopefully it is a pleasant meeting, and God felt between you two. We must treat each other with respect, we will answer to all things we do to each other by the judge of all judges who sits on the throne in heaven,

Life is but a vapor. Life is that short. Why not make life a excellent experience if even for a few seconds for another person with a good morning or have a blessed day?

Romans 12:10

Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;”

King James Version (KJV)

I enjoy being nice to people and sharing a smile, good conversation, good food, or a prayer/praise to our wonderful GOD in heaven. Sharing a connection of faith, fellowship, and good clean fun. It just warms the heart of everyone involved!

There are people in this world who may need to see a smiling face and know there are others who share the love of GOD. Even in passing. When ever we can , we need to encourage all who share the body of Christ. For there are many who do not, and they seek to do harm to others who are in the body of our beloved Christ JESUS.

As we go through our lives, we must remember , what we say and do affects everyone including ourselves. For we can be encouraged by what we do for others when we can put a sincere smile on their face for how or what we do for them.

Be it they are newborn to the well aged. Age should not matter to treating a person with loving heart of JESUS.

John 15:12

“This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.”

King James Version (KJV)

Have a blessed day, please do pass it forward this blog post so others who do need to be encouraged will be blessed too as I do hope this was a blessing for you as well! 🙂

Peace!!!

Are there Binghamton Black Christian Artists besides me?

As an free form, or hand drawn artist meaning not a graphic artist using computers. I am just old school about my art. I would love to make graphic when I am bale to get an updated computer.

But I am grateful for what I have right now.

As a black woman living in Upstate New York, I find it is a different world than Downstate New York. And for one to say they are a Christian and an artist that is looking for an Art Gallery to promote their work is almost futile. I feel like when I say I am a Christian people will look at me as though I have two heads. LOL!

There are galleries here, but the culture and ideas of what is art is not what I feel comfortable doing. Even with the nudes or other themes that are even more “out of the box” teachings of the type of art where college I attended art classes!

I would love to network with more local artists of any color, but I would love to meet more people of color too. Share ideas, learn about new call to artist events and so on.

So it you are a Upstate New York Binghamton Artist , please feel free to contact me.

Have a blessed day,

Peace!!!!

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!!!

1 John 4:1 “Beloved believe not every spirit….”

Hello everyone, I do pray that you all will have a blessed day. For this is another day that the LORD has made for us all.

I have seen many people that cling to the idea of spirituality and turn their nose up at religion, saying it is too structured. Yet they acknowledge there is a higher power or there is a GOD. And prefer to be “spiritual”.

There are so many beliefs out there to confuse people and keep them from GOD and from accepting JESUS as their saviour of their souls.

To me from what I can see, if any religion or church does not teach that JESUS is the savoir of our souls who do believe in HIM, they are sending every soul in there to eternal hell.

John 14:6 King James Version

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (KJV)

When you are into the spirituality way of thinking, you are not into the truth behind salvation. You are distracted from the truth. JESUS is the truth. None of us mankind will enter into heaven unless we accept JESUS as our key to unlock the door of heavens gates.

ALL of those who have died on before us, who have not received JESUS as their savoir will not get into heaven according to scripture.

And I do understand that many reading this will have people in their lives that have gone on before them that were good people will not want to hear they are not making it into heaven. But the Bible is clear as how GOD’s plan is.

But it is NOT too late to save your own soul from hell. Allow JESUS in your life. Accept JESUS as your savior now.

1 John 4:1

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”

King James Version (KJV)

Choosing a religion that does not teach salvation, is as the lost leading the lost sort of thing.

In those non- Christian religions, they may assume just being a good person, doing good deeds, doing nice things for their family and friends and giving large donations to the needy is being right with GOD. Or just a higher being that they call GOD.

But if you do not love GOD and HIS son JESUS and have a righteous relationship with them both, and have accepted JESUS as savior that is all you will accomplish is just being called a nice person by your peers.

.

Ephesians 2:8 – 2:9

8. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: It is the gift of GOD.

9. Not of works , lest any man should boast.

There are many people out there who think they can buy their way into heaven. Or do favors for their friends and have it known they are a good person. It is not true. Ephesians 2:8 and 9 will correct us on that thought. Some faiths will teach this to people to do good acts/deeds and favors so they will get into heaven.

A person I know will says that they are spiritual. They listen to a person who comes on the internet. This person they listen to is into spiritual thinking, ways that that way appear to be good to this person I know. But what I see is this internet person is playing with their souls fate that will lead them to hell. They are into astrology, dreams, spiritual energy and similar things that has nothing to do with Christianity at all. This internet person is a false prophet.

Read the word of GOD to get understanding and protection from the nonsense of those who are false prophets. Because these workers of evil will seek after those who have not come to know GOD and his son JESUS.

Proverbs 2:6

“For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.”

King James Version (KJV)

I do pray that you will share this with all of your loved ones, for we not want to have anyone crash and burn in hell. Not even your enemies, for they need to be saved too. And once they see the light and repent then they will be part of the body of Christ you in heaven!

Peace!!!!

Galatians 5:22-23

Galatians Chapter 5:22-23

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Hello everyone, I do pray that all is well with you and that our beloved GOD and HIS one and only son will lead and guide your steps at all times. For we can trust our GOD for HE is loving and knows all.

Temptation is all around us who seek after GOD at all times. The evil one will try to distract us and put up a wall to confuse us and cloud our thinking if we do not stay in prayer.

This will never be an easy task for any of us. Some people may look as though they got it covered when you can truly see the fruits of their labor. What you do not see is the struggle they go through each day and how hard they pray when you are not around.

They are prayer warriors whose heart is after the LORD. They read and study the scripture for peace, wisdom and comfort from the LORD GOD. And they get it too. Ask me how I know.

This chapter and verse from Galatians chapter 5 regarding the fruit of the spirit comes to me when just living my day to day walking the face of the earth in this world.

There is a small amount of the fruit of the spirit around us all in these times,such as love and charity.


LONGSUFFERING, a. Bearing injuries or provocation for a long time; patient; not easily provoked.

The Lord God, merciful and gracious, long-suffering and abundant in goodness. Ex. 34.

I tell you all who read this , to know, that we all have crosses to bear. For no one has a perfect life because of the fall from grace from the first bite of the forbidden fruit by our Grandparents Adam and Eve.

I do encourage you all to read about all of the situations that happened in life in the Bible. You will find that our ancestors have been tempted with the same sins we are with now in our times. It is the same evil one who tempted them, that is doing the tempting now in present time.

Nothing is new when it comes to sin and temptations. How we get through it , is what counts. And we can get through it with our LORD GOD. Just call out in faith and he will help you.

James 4:7

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

King James Version (KJV)

May you be blessed for reading the word of GOD in this blog and have a blessed day. Share with others so that they can get a blessing for reading the word too. Thank you very much for reading this blog!

Peace!!!

Close encounters of the JESUS kind.

close encouters 3-25-19

Good morning to all! I pray that you all are doing well this new day. For each day that passes is getting closer to spring! Yay!

I had been thinking about how we all need to be closer to the what is good and right with the ways of GOD and have a peaceful way about us. A closer encounter. If you GOOGLE “Close encounter” you will come up with some links.

I came across an old move movie called “Close Encounters” from 1977. It is about how people all over are drawn to a location, like minded and lost in the thought of aiming to get to this location.

If you flip this to how it can be for those of us that are like minded and aim to be with the LORD…..this is something like this. You are focused and not distracted because you are seeking the destination of heaven.

If we are in the body of Christ JESUS then we are like mined, wanting to aim for the higher place away from the ways of this fallen world. We look up and have set our hearts on being with the LORD.

Acts 17:27-29 King James Version

27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:

28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.

Keeping our focus on the LORD is hard, because the evil one is always trying to take our eyes off our prize of our LORD JESUS . To be with HIM in all eternity long! Yay!!!!

Philippians 3:14 King James Version

14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Keep your mind and heart on our prize in heaven. You will be encouraged by reading the word of GOD that is true and loving.

Have a blessed day in the LORD where ever you may be. Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog posts I share with you all . Pass it forward to others who may need to know loving GOD is always there with them.

Peace!
