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.

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!!!

The Tribe of JUDAH!

Good morning everyone! I do pray that you are having a blessed day, for this is another day that the LORD GOD has made!

As th new year is a head of us like in 4 days as it is by today’s post….I have always wondered what original tribe I was from. Hoping as we all want to think it is from good for ourselves I would like to think it was from the tribe of JUDAH.

For theses tribe from what I understand at this point in time were scattered, and lost. So they could have ended up in anyplace where they were able to travel to.

As a research as best as I can, it seems like no one really knows for sure where they went to. And maybe this is what our GOD had wanted to happen so that we would not truly know when our JESUS will return to earth to take the believers home. I can not say. For reading the word, it is not clear to me where the peoples settled.

Maybe someone who has studied the tribe more than I have can explain what they have found out and then we could look up what they have found as well.

The tribe of David is linked to the tribe of Judah and Benjamin as well. So this is the link to leading up to the birth of JESUS CHRIST.

Judah’s tribe was the largest. Introduced in the Biblical book of Genesis and in the Torah, the tribe of Judah is descended from Judah, the fourth son of Jacob and Leah. Judah was one of Jacob’s twelve sons, and was responsible in part for placing his younger, more favored brother Joseph in a pit.”

“The tribe of Judah settled in the region south of Jerusalem and in time became the most powerful and most important tribe. Not only did it produce the great kings David and Solomon but also, it was prophesied, the Messiah would come from among its members.”

Tribe of Judah. … Judah was the fourth son of Jacob and his first wife, Leah. The tribe of Judah became one of the most important because it was the tribe of the monarchy, or rulership under one royal leader, when the ancient kingdom of Israel was established around the 11th century BCE.”

“The Lion of Judah (Hebrew: אריה יהודה Aryeh Yehudah) is a Jewish national and cultural symbol, traditionally regarded as the symbol of the Israelite tribe of Judah. … The Lion of Judah is also mentioned in the Book of Revelation, as a term representing Jesus, according to Christian theology.”

“In Matthew 1:1–6 and Luke 3:31–34 of the New Testament, Jesus is described as a member of the tribe of Judah by lineage. Revelation 5:5 also mentions an apocalyptic vision of the Lion of the tribe of Judah.”

The Lion of JUDAH
https://www.israeliteliving.com/maps This old map of Africa shows the vast area formally known as Ethiopia versus the tiny region in East Africa termed Ethiopia today.

1762 map clearly showing the tribe of Judah located in the Dahomey region of West Africa the same location where the majority of slaves were sold from.

You know it is interesting information when yu read the word and also read history books as well that link up with the Bible too. Learning the culture , location and traditions of the Bible helps me to understand what was going on back then.

Even with the tools , or instruments and type of food that was eaten then. So that when we celebrate EASTER in 2020, we maybe able to actually know more abut the word and what it was like back then when our JESUS walked this earth saving us all from the sins we have fallen into.

GOD is so cool as to love us humans so that HE sent HIS son here to save us from our sins! And GOD’s beloved son so cool as to do GOD’s will , going through all of the abuse we put on JESUS and then killing HIM too. JESUS went through alot for us all.

I am so very grateful to know that JESUS has saved my soul.

I don’t know how to even begin to see by researching if I am in the tribe of JUDAH. As I have made an attempt to find out on line alone….I see there is no sure way on how to do it.

Merry Christmas!

Good morning and happy blessed Christmas day to you all!

Let us all remember to true one and only reason for Christmas. It is becasue our beloved GOD in heaven sent HIS only son JESUS to this earth to save our souls.

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.”

King James Version (KJV)

Let us never forget our JESUS, for HE is the key to entering heaven where all of us who seek eternal peace will have it there. And this is good.

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)

I need to make the Lasagna meal for tonight’s Christmas dinner. I pray that you all will have a blessed Christmas be it with our GOD, Jesus and our loved ones or with GOD and Jesus as you can not be with family and friends at this time. You are not alone or ever alone or unloved when you have a good solid relationship with GOD and Jesus the son of GOD!

Matthew 28:20

“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

King James Version (KJV)

Have a blessed , safe, peaceful and joyful Christmas! Stay in prayer, trust in the LORD not the ways of the world or mankind. Joy is in the LORD!

Peace.

My Addiction to GOD and JESUS!

Good morning all, I do hope and pray you all will have a blessed day. For this is another day that the LORD GOD has made.

I hear about all kinds of addictions in this day and age. Anything from drugs, sex, food, money and anything else you and I don’t know about and shouldn’t. I don’t hear much about people talking about out JESUS.

But I will tell you I do have an addiction. It is GOD the FATHER, and HIS son Christ JESUS. Yep, full fledged addict and proud of it too! I need my fix after a good nights sleep and getting up I need to talk to GOD and JESUS. I need to feel the instant “high” I get from them. Giving me a feeling of comfort and being loved unconditionally 24/7.

I “take” a reading of the word and it gives me a “high” too. I call it a spiritual high with the combination of knowing GOD and JESUS are there with me! Here are some “Bible shots of encouragement” That can get you going all day long.

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.

Jeremiah 17:14 – Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou [art] my praise.

Jeremiah 33:6 – Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.

1 Peter 2:24 – Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Isaiah 53:5 – But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

James 5:15 – And 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.

Psalms 103:2-4 – Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:   (Read More…)

James 5:14 – Is 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:

3 John 1:2 – Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

James 5:16 – Confess [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.

Psalms 41:3 – The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.

Psalms 147:3 – He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

Matthew 10:1 – And when he had called unto [him] his twelve disciples, he gave them power [against] unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

Proverbs 17:22 – A merry heart doeth good [like] a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

You can if you need to , go ahead and print these out and carry them with you. Put it on your desk so you can read it with an situation comes up and you need your spirit filled up again with a shot of righteousness to get going back on track. Share it with others too.

Sometimes we can get so distracted by the ways of the world that we can get turned around. This is why we need to turn to GOD and JESUS as the first thing in the morning to have the HOLY SPIRIT as the juice to drink.

In this day and age, because JESUS is the very last one people mention i this holiday season. Many people are distracted from GOD, they will raise their children with no knowledge of GOD. Forgetting how they were raised in faith by their parents. So we have a lot of non believers walking around us these days not knowing what they are doing.

So we who DO love GOD must hand on even harder, holding on for dear life for it is our life we pray for.

Keep your addiction to the LORD, and never let it go. Ever. Our GOD keeps us strong. Our GOD is good, and all of the time.

Thank you for reading this post, share it with ours who need a boost of faith to read some scripture so they can be blessed too! Pass it forward, be blessed and never stressed!

Peace!

Witnessing for the LORD.

Good morning to you all and thank you for taking the time to read this blog.

I do pray that our beloved FATHER GOD is with you and HIS beloved son JESUS to protect and guide you through your whole life in all that you do. For the world can be mean, and our GOD can overcome that with our faith and trust in HIM.

Telling people about the good news is to encourage those who are seeking the truth about our JESUS and salvation so that they can be saved from death. I would not like anyone I know to burn in a place where our beloved GOD and HIS son is not. That is including all who hate because of the light of the LORD that is in us who love GOD and HIS son JESUS.

Talking to family, friends and new people you meet about the LORD. Photo from https://www.wakefieldccg.nhs.uk

See we can witness to others through the HOLY spirit leading us with the HOLY discernment that we will have as to who will be open to learn about the LORD. You will know who to talk to and when with the discernment because GOD is leading you.

1 Corinthians 2:14

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

King James Version (KJV)

There are some of us Christians who will go door to door to talk about the LORD and witness to those who are home and are willing to open the door to us. I do recall as a child how the Deacons of the Church would go out to save souls with the Bible in their hands. I recall Deacon Jenkins of the Baptist Church I went too as an example doing so. He was the coolest person I admired from the Church. He ALWAYS had his bible with him! A good quiet soul, never negative and a good Dad and husband to his family.

Saying this I do know that Jehovah Witnesses like to go door to door to do their witnessing. And also in public places such as bus stations and airports where numbers of people are gathered. Be aware, the teaching they follow are not correct. Some reading : https://www.christianity.com/church/denominations/10-things-everyone-should-know-about-jehovah-s-witnesses-and-their-beliefs.html

But as a true believer in JESUS CHRIST we call ourselves Christians and do our witnessing differently. Our doctrine is of the Christian KJV Bible. The JW’s will use a bible called the New Testament. It is not worded as a Christian Bible. So their thoughts on witnessing is not like that of a Christian. We can learn to witness to them lovingly about our Bible and JESUS too.

1 John 1:3

“That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.”

King James Version (KJV)

Many people who do not follow GOD and HIS loving ways were never told about HIM. They may not be all immoral in their thinking and will want to be good people. But if they do not know the LORD GOD and have accepted JESUS as their savior, they may not ever be lead to JESUS. So we must do our witnessing in a loving way.

Matthew 28:19

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”

King James Version (KJV)

She may have saved two people in this clip.

See, you do not have to be a Jehovah witness (J.W) to witness to anyone. Even though they will assume that Christians do not. We do. If they (the J.W,’s) do not go to our Churches or are in our religion, how will they know what we do? We must witness to the J.W’s as well too. They need to know about the true meaning of salvation and to be saved.

Witnessing tips and sites I have found interesting. You know what? As you read the word and spread it to others….you will learn from the word that you are lead to say to others. So witnessing is two fold.

1. https://www.revelation.co/2015/07/24/clever-ways-to-share-the-gospel-without-saying-a-word/

2.https://www.allaboutgod.com/christian-witnessing.htm

3. https://blog.biblesforamerica.org/witnessing-for-christ/

Let us think about each person we see, all people we know, and remember what salvation is. So that they will not end up in locked up for all eternity long with satan away from our beloved GOD. Let them not suffer by not telling them the truth. The devil has lied to them way long enough. Right?

Praise GOD now and for all eternity long!!!!

Have a blessed day, thank you for reading my blog and I do pray that this has encouraged you as you encourage others. Pass it forward and stay in prayer as we wait for the LORD JESUS to return!

Peace!!!!

Being positive around negativity.

Picture is from this site: http://deliveranceministry.com.au/how-to-handle-court-legal-matters-per-proverbs-25/

Good day to you all. I do pray that you all are and will have a blessed day!

We all need to be and stay encouraged 24/7 by our every loving FATHER GOD. We can not even wake up to get our air to breathe each day without HIM.

Avoiding negative situations can be a test of faith. It is not easy as there are so many people who do not know the LORD, or who do but still struggle hard with being positive.

If we were to be alone or away from negative people for some time , we wou.d relax and enjoy the peace. Many of us can not do this for jobs, family , health or whatever else that may distract us from the LORD.

It takes some prayer and practice to be positive as humanly possible with the help of JESUS to lead the way. Shaking off the nonsense of the day, and just having that JESUS time to yourself in a nice quiet space. It could be in your car when you are on your breaks , or when you are the 1st one up in your busy household at your kitchen table with your Bible.

Positive words to incorporate in our thoughts and talks after reading the word and knowing scripture first and foremost are excellent. They will also have others to speak them too. Encouraging one another with compliments too.

These words of encouragement are from a non Christian site called https://englishstudyhere.com/ways-to-say/45-ways-to-praise/ .

Now with this in mind to encourage our family, friends and coworkers, along with our scripture we will help others besides ourselves once we keep our focus on the LORD. So they can see and feel the same joy/love you do because of the love of GOD in you.

Heaven is a good place to be, there is GOD, JESUS, the Angels and all of the good people whose name is written in the LAMBS BOOK of LIFE.

As we with a JESUS heart we can lead others to JESUS who maynot truly know what to do to get to JESUS to be saved. They must confess the LORD JESUS as savior and let HIM into thier lives.

So with giving each other praise, encouragement, and the love of JESUS with us we will plant the “seed of faith” for those around us. And for GOD to nourish the seed into a flown grown born again saved soul.

Have a blessed day, share this post with others so that they too can recieve a blessing from reading GODS word! Pass it forward in faith and prayer.

Peace!
