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!!!!

The body of Christ.

Romans 12:4

“For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:”

King James Version (KJV)

All who seek after Christ are in the body!

Good day to you all. I do hope all is well as we are now into a new month in 2020. It is the month for Black history and Valentine”s Day. Both are good thing s to know about for all people.

Speaking of love on Valentines day…this is something that we all should consider doing is to share the love we have from the body of Christ with others. Many have no idea what this is.

As I have read the way that JESUS would talk to women in the Bible HE had compassion for us. Understanding too. But this was for everyone, not just us women. The Children along with the men. So yeah, that is pretty much everyone of all ages. The elders, infants and those in between too.

1 Corinthians 12:12-27 KJV

12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

14 For the body is not one member, but many,

Eli Byrd -“Diversity Functioning in Unity” at the Southeastern Seminary

There is no division between the peoples of the body of Christ. Not an issue with the body of Christ when you understand what it is about. There should be unity. Read 1 Corinthians 12:12-27

We are all one, with differents jobs to do as a body would have hands, a head, a heart to make the body work in unity. We are all given different gifts to do to serve. Cool!

Let us do our serving as how GOD wants us to do so, to encourage others to GOD. Let us listen to GOD to find our gifts, and not to compare us to others. Others have their own gifts as how to serve. A foot can not do what the head can do. And if the leg hurts and you can not walk, then the whole body will suffer trying to move about in pain.

Let us find fellowship with our fellow members of Christ so we can edify each other.

Please do pass this forward so others will hear and read the word of GOD and get a blessing from this. We who love GOD and those who need to find GOD. Have a blessed day!

Peace!

Spiritual warfare in the world. Ephesians 6:12

It is a real issue.

Good morning to you all, and giving glory to our beloved FATHER GOD first and foremost, for with out GOD there is nothing.

Never forget that our GOD loves us so. And with the ups and downs in this fallen world, we need to keep strong in our faith and to kick in even harder with our faith in GOD and HIS son JESUS our savior.

The evil one is busy confusing people who have little or no faith with whispering lies into their every thought. And you can see the weak ones do the immoral acts of the day. Doing things that they feel they wont get caught doing, or don’t care because they like what they do. The devil knows the weakness of all mankind. It is the flesh that we are in.

He can lie to us and tell us such as:

We are not handsome enough, or pretty enough. But someones set standard.

We are too tall or too short. Why? GOD made variety so that each one of us will be special.

We are not smart enough or even overqualified for a job or task. Why?If a person is under qualified, teach them. If they are over qualified let them teach others.

If a person looks different from you and your family and relatives so what?Then they just have different mothers and dads. If you feel they are not as good as you, then you are wrong for being narrow minded.

Assuming that when a person is over 21, or even 30 is old if you are younger. And assume that they do not work out, like wearing fashionable clothing. That women should not wear dresses above the knee, even if she is fit and works out. This is wrong, for men seem to be considered still attractive when they get older. No one gets ugly as soon as they turn 22 years old. You still remain attractive but you are just older.

These things can cause issues in society when people wind up not getting along with each other because some people need to put other in a box.

Listening to our beloved GOD will give us they encouragement you need, every single time. It will come from like minded people who love GOD as well as you. For any friend that will stop and pray right along with you is a blessing.

Defense against the spiritual warfare. Praying with your family and friends.

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

King James Version (KJV)

I came across this on YouTube. I found it very interesting so I am sharing it with you. We live in a fallen world and GOD will send HIS angels to watch over us.

Luke 10:19

“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Thank you all for taking the time to read my post in this blog. I pray that you all will have a blessed day. feel free to pass it forward to others you know who will need encouragement too.

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!!

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.

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?

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!
