Holding on to the FATHERS hand.

Good day everyone! I do hope that you really are having a good day today. It has snowed some here and made the back yard with a thin covering of white.

I think about when I was a child and how things were when I could actually hold on to my parents hand and trust them to guide me through the paths we were taking without a second thought to the matter. Going across the street in front of the cars when all you can see is the grill on the front of the car ! Let alone how big the trucks looked back then.

I was happy to feel safe while holding on to their hands. They know how to manage through the cars as they stopped for the red light. But at the time as a small child, I though the cars stopped because they knew we wanted to get to the other side. I was too small to look up and see the stop lights! LOL!

Praise and glory be to GOD to have good parents that took care of me. Bless them.

But you know what? Our GOD is even way far better than our parents were as we were children because GOD is perfect. Unconditionally perfect at all times looking over us. Giving us what we need, because he knows what we need even before we do.

John 10:18

18 No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of My own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This charge I have received from My Father.”

It is so comforting to know how thr LORD GOD loves us all enought to have sent HIS only begotton son JESUS here on this earth to save us and be our savior.

As a child of GOD, I know I have a heavenly loving FATHER always guiding my steps as I go along the way. Holding me up even if I slip and fall…..HE will pick me up. Keep me safe.

Psalms 145:14

“The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.”

King James Version (KJV)

Isaiah 59  (KJV)

59 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

Psalm 32:8

8 I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will give you counsel and watch over you.  kjv

At times I will look up to the heavens to acknowledge that GOD is watching over me. And stretch up my hands as if I were a small child wanting to hold on to my ever loving FATHERS hand. Because I know HE is there watching over me. Always in all I do. I depend on GOD to guide me for HE knows what is on the road ahead of me and is keeping me safe and sound.

Have a blessed day and my you be blessed by the reading of our GODS word. Pass it forward to others so that they may read this blog and feel encouraged and to know that GOD loves them too!

Peace!

Learning from innocent children a GODLY love.

Good day everyone, I do pray that you all will have a blessed day that the LORD GOD has made!

I want to share something with you all. I have seen these two videos and they are about as pure in heart as can be. What we can learn from these children is that when you have a friend or friends you share your love for them.

Children are innocent and if they are not influenced by the ways of the world who teach hate and all manner of evils will love one another with a GODLY innocent heart.

This is what is taken from us when we are out in the world…..going to school or work or whatever. That warm feeling of comfort is taken away with lies and other abuse. If it is in the home, then it was led into the home by lies and confusion.

Children need to be protected and loved, this is how they learn to be happy like these children are. In these videos when I saw them, they touched my heart. Some of you may have seen these already. But being me , I need to share this in case you have not.

Children being happy to see another child like them. The children see no difference in each other. They are very happy to see each other and to be with each other. That is how they are before the world steps in to take away that joy!

When I think about the what grown people do to each other , it is horrible. Looking at how the boys are running to each other with their arms out to greet each other is so very touching.

Bible verses related to Greeting Others from the (KJV)

1 Peter 5:14 – Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace [be] with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.

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.

1 Thessalonians 5:14 – Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feeble minded, support the weak, be patient toward all [men].

1 Corinthians 16:20 – All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss.

1 Corinthians 1:4 – I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

2 John 1:10 – If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into [your] house, neither bid him God speed:

If we remember as a child, that friend you loved and shared childhood memories that were good and had and adult intervene and pull you two apart, you will remember that. That was an ungodly thing to have happen.

These children are blessed because they are doing what GOD wants them to do. To get along with each other and to love each other as people who are like them. Listen to the videos and gain an understanding of what it is to have a friend you see no color in.

Have a blessed day, life in the LORD GOD. For we all want to be with GOD and HIS son JESUS when we die and live in heaven with them. Peace is a good thing. Share this post with others so they will pass it on and be blessed too.

Peace!


Holier-than-thou.

Only one man who ever walked the face of the earth can claim it, our LORD JESUS CHRIST!

Romans 3:23

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

King James Version (KJV)

Good day everyone I pray that all is well with you and that our beloved GOD is always watching over you to guide you all in what you do and go.

Have you ever met a person who claimed to be Christian , knowing you are one will compare to see who between the two of you is more Holier than the other? I have met people like this. And those who where non Christians that thought that all Christians were judging them or others. They assume we all think we have an holier than thou way of thinking.

Not so. Not one person can say they know all peoples heart except GOD.

I must say this, as a person who wants to make it into heaven into our ever loving FATHERS house……I confess that I can say I am a sinner. As it is will all mankind, womankind, and of all ages. For only JESUS was perfect and without sin.

How can one assume they are Holier than thou in the first place when if they know JESUS came to earth to save all mankind souls who believe in him? See, there were no righteous men who could do what he was able to do?

Romans 3:10

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:”

King James Version (KJV)

If we as Christians do this to each other, then the secular world will see it and have an excuse as not to follow JESUS for not wanting to be treated as such. And with seeing how secular people may treat each other…..they will stay in the place of non-belief where they are and not be saved. For they will see that the world they are in is not any better.

Bible verses related to No One Is Perfect from the KJV


James 4:11-12 – Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of [his] brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.   (Read More…)

Ephesians 4:32 – And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Mark 11:25 – And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

I am hoping that all of us who have been judged by others who feel that they were made to feel less HOLY than the person who is a Christian will not take it as they are being condemned to hell because they said so. Just so you know it is GOD, and GOD alone who is the judge as to who is allowed into HIS house.

This is why it is good to read the word and to study it. Right there in the Bible it will tell you the plan GOD has for us all to follow. And to accept HIS son JESUS as savior is the key to heavens gate. JESUS is the key because he was sent by GOD as a sacrifice to save all mankind who believe and live by GOD’s plan. JESUS is part of GOD’s plan for peace, love, joy, and no more negative issues of this world to steal your happiness.

In GOD’s timing, we will be called home to HIS house if we are saved. Once saved, we will all see heaven together. There we can enjoy being with HIM, JESUS , the Angels and all of those that was called before us.

Ephesians 2:8-9 King James Version (KJV)

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man should boast. (KJV)

May you all have a blessed day, encourage one another. If someone approaches you who is on fire for the LORD and they seem like they are acting “Holier-than-thou”, give them a chance to see if all they are doing is letting you know the good news of the gospel.

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog with the words from the Bible and the posts! Pass it forward and share the blessing!

Peace!

GOD is greater than all of our problems!

Good morning, afternoon and evening everyone!

I do pray that all is well with you all no matter where you are today! For this is another day that our beloved GOD has made for us all! A new day and a new beginning

We all go through a test or trials in life. I go through working in an office where there seems to be out of 150 people 2% are believers. So the non-believers run from upper management to the subordinates. This also means that what ever proper morals they may have are reflected in social skills and work skills as well too.

Stay in prayer, find a quiet place at work and silently pray to our heavenly FATHER GOD who sees all and can see the hurt you go through from the wicked ones.

Psalms 37:32 Context

29The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever. 

30The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment. 

31The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide. 

32The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. 

33The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.

 34Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it

35I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

We believers are very different. This reflects on how non-believers will relate to us. And here is where the trouble begins. They will judge you by what they know, if they don’t know GOD then they judge us by they way of the world. Creating a problem when they need to just simply mind thier own concerns and be right

Bible Verses About Cast Your Cares kjv

James 1:12 – Blessed [is] the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

The LORD will talk to you , so be ready to listen to HIM for HE will never lie to you. HE will comfort you in these times and encourage you always. I know becasue HE has done so for me. And HE will do this for you as well too.

The inner peace!

John 11:25 Context

22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. 

23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. 

24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? 

27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world. 

28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

Good Morning everyone!

I do hope that where ever you all maybe on GOD’s earth today that you are in a cool place and are comfortable and safe. It has been hotter than usual here in New York. But right now, it seems to be cool compared to yesterday. I do thank GOD for that.

With all of this heat we are having I do think about when I would head out to the beach and enjoy the ocean water. I would swim in it to cool off or even just to look at it when it was too cold to really swim in it. It was so peaceful for me as a child. Calming i fact, like there was nothing to even think about really and I would fall asleep under my parents watchful eyes.

Enjoying the inner peace!

The only way to have true inner peace is to let go of the issues of the world and just enjoy what the LORD has made.

Peaceful thoughts in a peaceful scene

Church is not the only place that I do find some peace. It is with nature too, the beaches are one of the other places to be for me.

You can have concerns on your mind that you pray over and wait for the LORD GOD to take from you. And GOD will too. But also for me, once I am there looking at the ocean they are washed away!

It is as though the LORD is letting me know that HE “got this”…HE is taking care of my burden and HE will wash it all away! It will be no more to bind me down. I sigh a big sigh of relief knowing that GOD is in control!

Giving me a feeling of inner peace. Joy. And comfort. Knowing that HE has heard my heart calling out to HIM in prayer.

Giving me a feeling of being loved by GOD and HIS son JESUS at all times. Even as I write this to you. Knowing that JESUS is my savior, and has came on earth to sacrifice HIS life on the cross so that I may live, ALL mankind will live who believe and worship HIM!

Our sins are washed away into the sea of forgiveness.

When I think of the ocean or see it, I do think of how our JESUS has washed away our sins through our faith, trust and belief in HIM our savior!

So I do ask you all to remember what JESUS has done for me, you our loved ones, and all people we know. All who feel your sins are too great to be forgiven. It is for ALL people who have sinned, all we have to do is to repent. Simple.

Remember JESUS when you see the ocean, any clean water, lakes and streams, drinking water, bathing, even the rain from the sky. Remember what our JESUS came to do as a man here on earth, to save every single soul of all mankind so that they may live in peace with GOD and HIS son JESUS in heaven for all of eternity long. Water is everywhere when you think about it.

Even our bodies are made of 60% of water. So think about how letting JESUS is the living water you need to be 100% into your heart , mind and soul . With faith it will be done! Don’t test GOD, ask for HIS help.

I pray you all will be cool and safe and healthy. May you all be blessed by the reading of GOD’s word in this blog, and please do pass it forward for others so they will be blessed too. Amen? Yes Amen!!!

Peace!

King David, a man after GOD’s own heart.

Picture from site: https://connectionpoint.tv/media/david-man-after-gods-own-heart

Good morning, afternoon or evening to you all depending when you read this post!

I do hope you all are well and are keeping in prayer. It is harder and harder for those of us who love the LORD to avoid the ways of the world and we may slip or back slide from what others may lead you to do for a time. But because we have the feeling of convection and repent not to turn and do whatever it was never again, we repent.

Those who do not have this feeling of repentance of sins because they love the sin and not GOD may not understand what it is that I am speaking of.

It is spiritual discernment.

We who fear and love GOD because we know HE is all powerful and has a watchful eye on us ALL….know HE is in control.

King David in the bible loved GOD. King David sinned with Bathsheba. Who was the wife of Uriah. King David becomes attracted to Bathsheba who is the wife of Uriah, one of David’s soldiers. The attraction is mutual although both know an affair would break the law of Moses. When Bathsheba discovers she is pregnant by David, the King sends for Uriah hoping he will spend time with his wife to cover her pregnancy. From 2 Samuel 11.

2 Samuel 11 King James Version (KJV)

11 And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem.

And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king’s house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very beautiful to look upon.

And David sent and enquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?

And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house.

And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child.

And David sent to Joab, saying, Send me Uriah the Hittite. And Joab sent Uriah to David.

And when Uriah was come unto him, David demanded of him how Joab did, and how the people did, and how the war prospered.

And David said to Uriah, Go down to thy house, and wash thy feet. And Uriah departed out of the king’s house, and there followed him a mess of meat from the king.

But Uriah slept at the door of the king’s house with all the servants of his lord, and went not down to his house.

10 And when they had told David, saying, Uriah went not down unto his house, David said unto Uriah, Camest thou not from thy journey? why then didst thou not go down unto thine house?

11 And Uriah said unto David, The ark, and Israel, and Judah, abide in tents; and my lord Joab, and the servants of my lord, are encamped in the open fields; shall I then go into mine house, to eat and to drink, and to lie with my wife? as thou livest, and as thy soul liveth, I will not do this thing.

12 And David said to Uriah, Tarry here to day also, and to morrow I will let thee depart. So Uriah abode in Jerusalem that day, and the morrow.

13 And when David had called him, he did eat and drink before him; and he made him drunk: and at even he went out to lie on his bed with the servants of his lord, but went not down to his house.

14 And it came to pass in the morning, that David wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah.

15 And he wrote in the letter, saying, Set ye Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die.

16 And it came to pass, when Joab observed the city, that he assigned Uriah unto a place where he knew that valiant men were.

17 And the men of the city went out, and fought with Joab: and there fell some of the people of the servants of David; and Uriah the Hittite died also.

18 Then Joab sent and told David all the things concerning the war;

19 And charged the messenger, saying, When thou hast made an end of telling the matters of the war unto the king,

20 And if so be that the king’s wrath arise, and he say unto thee, Wherefore approached ye so nigh unto the city when ye did fight? knew ye not that they would shoot from the wall?

21 Who smote Abimelech the son of Jerubbesheth? did not a woman cast a piece of a millstone upon him from the wall, that he died in Thebez? why went ye nigh the wall? then say thou, Thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.

22 So the messenger went, and came and shewed David all that Joab had sent him for.

23 And the messenger said unto David, Surely the men prevailed against us, and came out unto us into the field, and we were upon them even unto the entering of the gate.

24 And the shooters shot from off the wall upon thy servants; and some of the king’s servants be dead, and thy servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.

25 Then David said unto the messenger, Thus shalt thou say unto Joab, Let not this thing displease thee, for the sword devoureth one as well as another: make thy battle more strong against the city, and overthrow it: and encourage thou him.

26 And when the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband.

27 And when the mourning was past, David sent and fetched her to his house, and she became his wife, and bare him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the Lord.King James Version (KJV)

See, GOD is so cool, more than anyone could ever measure. This story about King David and this love he had for Bathsheba was complicated and deceiving. And it led to murder too.

But King David asked to be forgiven. https://biblehub.com/bsb/2_samuel/12.htm

But King David asked to be forgiven. In 2 Samuel chapter 12 you will read about David’s Loss and Repentance

13Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD.”

“The LORD has taken away your sin,” Nathan replied. “You will not die. 14Nevertheless, because by this deed you have treated the LORD with utter contempt,b the son born to you will surely die.”

15After Nathan had gone home, the LORD struck the child that Uriah’s wife had borne to David, and he became ill. 16David pleaded with God for the boy. He fasted and went into his house and spent the night lying in sackclothc on the ground. 17The elders of his household stood beside him to help him up from the ground, but he was unwilling and would not eat anything with them.

You can read more about this here at this link. https://biblehub.com/bsb/2_samuel/12.htm

These situations in the Bible you will find are like the same situations that happen in today’s time. I feel the Bible is helpful to show how our ancestors who loved the LORD overcame this nonsense of the world through prayer and repentance. Only GOD was the judge then and STILL is today as well.

GOD judged King David, and gave HIS judgment on King David. King David repented asking to be forgiven. And was by our GOD. This is an excellent example as to how patient and loving GOD is still today.

I have heard many people say that GOD will not forgive them for what they had done. So they keep on living the way that they do. This is a lie that the devil is telling you. Plain and simple. This is why it is very important to read the Bible. For whatever sin you are going through right now….you can repent. No one is perfect. We need the LORD at all times and in all things.

Image from https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Philippians-4-13/

This is from Philippians Chapter 4:10-16

10But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. 11Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. 13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 14Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction. 15Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. 16For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.

Let no one lie to you about the love of JESUS. Telling you negative things about GOD and the Bible. Read it for yourself with prayer. One you read it, you very well may find the situation that you are in right now. And how these people in those days got through it. The Bible shows you what will happen when you take GOD’s advice and when you don’t. What is righteous and what is not. What path you decide to choose that you want to live to be saved. Every thing we all do has consequences to answer to from our GOD.

Only GOD will be to right judge, not mankind. For mankind does not run heaven, GOD does. Period. I say all of this my friends so you will not be deceived by those who walk the path of the lost and want you to walk right along with them on it to damnation.

If you seek after JESUS and want HIM with you, just ask HIM to be in your life. He will do it. Give up the sin and ask for JESUS to help you at all times to keep you strong righteously. We who love the LORD GOD are happy to share this good news about salvation for we do NOT want to see anyone we know crash and burn. We who are true Christians depend on the LORD for righteous strength too!

We Christians who truly love the LORD do want everyone to hear the word of GOD, to accept JESUS as their savior and be saved! So we all can enjoy the happy reunion in heaven together with GOD and HIS son JESUS. You know? That will be so cool to see not only your family and friends….but the people you worked with, school mates and even those who were once your enemies that are now saved and love JESUS as much as you do!

Think about how awesome that will be!

Have a blessed day in the LORD GOD. Know that HE loves mankind so much that HE did send HIS only begotten son JESUS here on earth to save us all from our sins. Now we have to do our part, and accept JESUS and repent. And don’t forget to ask JESUS for help in all you do to stay connected to HIM. Thank GOD for JESUS at all times, AMEN!!!

Peace!!!
