When The Storms Come!!

Proverbs 1 5

 

Have a Wonderful and Blessed day!!! When A Storm is Upon Us!!!

Proverbs 1:20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:
Proverbs 1:21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,
Proverbs 1:22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
Proverbs 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
Proverbs 1:24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
Proverbs 1:25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
Proverbs 1:26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
Proverbs 1:27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
Proverbs 1:28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
Proverbs 1:29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
Proverbs 1:30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
Proverbs 1:31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
Proverbs 1:32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
Proverbs 1:33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
Our response to Wisdom will determine whether our lives are marked by a whirlwind of destruction and death or the tranquility of peace, safety and eternal life.

A Storm is on the horizon – behind us & before us.
“When destruction comes like a whirlwind…” Ever witnessed a tornado or even a hurricane? Or maybe you at least see the movie with the flowing cows moo-ing as they flew to certain destruction?

It is an awful and terrifying experience of a fury and power that knows no mercy – A fury and power that gives no warning, offers no second chances and is without escape!

In New York I think we have had only two tornadoes. It was a very frightening. Now it didn’t leave destruction like the recent one in Tennessee but enough to show the power and fury.

At 8:45 AM Tuesday morning, September 11th, NYC, Washington, D.C. (and to an extent the world) was gravely impacted by a sudden, completely unexpected and indescribably terrible destruction that came “like a whirlwind.” Even those of us who were not right at ground zero seen the devastation.

Fellow Americans and friends, terrorism is not the only whirlwind of destruction about which we must be extremely wary and prepared. Not in any way to diminish the horrible atrocity we are still dealing with, but it is utterly important that we recognize that there is another whirlwind of destruction on the horizon. One that makes even the unspeakable horror of September 11, 2001 seem like a stubbed toe in comparison.
Not only will this whirlwind of destruction be far more sudden, horrible, and everlasting, but it is one which we all deserve and none may escape except by one route.

Now people are in fear and great PANIC over the Corona Virus now we haven’t seen the same destruction but much panic and mayhem at Hospitals, Nursing homes, and the local grocery store.
Don’t take my word for it! Hear the words of the wisest man who ever lived, inspired by the source of all wisdom. . .

PROPOSITION: Our response to Wisdom will determine whether our lives are marked by a whirlwind of destruction and death or the tranquility of peace, safety and eternal life.

I. WHO/WHAT IS WISDOM ?

A. Wisdom is a divine attribute of God.
1. God alone knows it;
Job 28:22 Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.
Job 28:23 God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
Proverbs 2:5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 2:7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
Proverbs 2:8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.

2. With it, God created all things;
Proverbs 3:19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.
Proverbs 3:20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.
B. Wisdom is knowledge plus prudence;
Proverbs 1:22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
Proverbs 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
Deuteronomy 4:6 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
Deuteronomy 4:7 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?
Psalm 51:6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

C. Wisdom is smart, and wise decision-making before God;
2Samuel 20:22 Then the woman went unto all the people in her wisdom. And they cut off the head of Sheba the son of Bichri, and cast it out to Joab. And he blew a trumpet, and they retired from the city, every man to his tent. And Joab returned to Jerusalem unto the king.
1Kings 5:12 And the LORD gave Solomon wisdom, as he promised him: and there was peace between Hiram and Solomon; and they two made a league together.

D. Wisdom is to have the right fear of God; and to know God.
Proverbs 1:29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
Proverbs 15:33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
Proverbs 9:8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
Proverbs 9:9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
E. Wisdom is the mark of the righteous; and beyond the reach of the simple , mockers , and fools.
Psalm 37:29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.
Psalm 37:30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.
Psalm 37:31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.
Proverbs 10:29 The way of the LORD is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.
Proverbs 10:30 The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.
Proverbs 10:31 The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out.
Proverbs 10:32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.

II. WISDOM CRIES OUT TO EVERYONE . . .
Proverbs 1:20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:
Proverbs 1:21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,
Proverbs 1:22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
BUT IS REJECTED BY MANY (Verse. 22).
A. “Simple Ones”
B. “Scorners”
Believed to come from a root word literally meaning “to make mouths at“. As used in OT, means to mock, scorn, belittle the words or ideas of another (in this case God)! Our world in its “BE TOLERANT LECTURES” are such good examples of mocking, and scorners when us as Saved, born again children of the MIGHTY GOD are attacked by the “Tolerant”.
C. “Fools”

Stupid, one who delights in not understanding (the guy & gal in school who thought it was cool to never do homework or answer the teacher’s questions, and to fail everything), and one who enjoys mischief. One whom laughs at the idea of hell, “I am going to be having a huge beer party with friends in hell” Not only is this foolish but so dangerous.
In one sense or another, this has or does apply to us all – even the most learned and seemingly wise or knowledgeable among us. I think most of us have come across the mockers and scorners. I think sometimes some of us have been the mockers.

III. GOD LONGS FOR US TO TURN TO WISDOM AND
BE BLESSED . (Verse. 23)

It is not, and never has been God’s desire for us to in any way feel pain, sorrow, loneliness, or suffering – let alone eternally! From the beginning, He declared His creation to be “very good” (Gen. 2:31). And His plan from the beginning was to fellowship with us and delight in and bless us.
Genesis 3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

IV. TO REJECT GOD’S WISDOM IS TO INVITE
DESTRUCTION AND DEATH .

Proverbs 1:24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
Proverbs 1:25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
Proverbs 1:26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
Proverbs 1:27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
Proverbs 1:28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
Proverbs 1:29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
Proverbs 1:30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
Proverbs 1:31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.
Proverbs 1:32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

Charles Spurgeon explained our predicament something like this: What if a vile, venomous snake were to craftily slither into your home, through the house, into the nursery, up and into your child’s bed. Then, suddenly, the shiny snake strikes and bites your child, filling him or her with potent venom that quickly kills the innocent babe.

Will you admire the metallic beauty and natural grace of that snake? Will you awe at its size, stealth and power? Or perhaps kill it, but then take it to a taxidermist that it might be vividly displayed in your home for all to admire its beauty and power? Of course not, you will kill it and then hurt it some more! You will stomp it and cut it and desecrate it. You will get it out of your house and your life forever! From that day forward every snake you see will be seen as your sworn enemy to be avoided if not utterly destroyed!!!

And yet we embrace our sin, and foolishness that killed the precious Son of God, Jesus! How foolish?! What a mockery that is?
My friends, we have to see there is a vast difference between being tempted, going into sin and then being sorry and repenting vs. when you go into sin AND YOU LOVE IT!

Lets also address the issue of Wisdom “laughing” and “mocking” during such horrible destruction and death. I’m sure many are privately, if not quietly, uncomfortable and questioning God at this. Let me make a few quick points for your consideration.

First, it is “Wisdom” that is laughing and mocking. It is largely a metaphor. It is like when a foolishly rest out of the car and slam the door on the back of my coat. Then, not realizing it strain and bounce back. My thoughts at that moment of sudden realization and wisdom is to laugh at and mock myself for such earlier stupidity.

God is not mentioned here as laughing & mocking. Yes, there are numerous other Scriptures which indicate that at the time of Judgement, after mercy has been extended and rejected, God no longer has compassion on those souls or their just punishment. Do we not value and believe in perfect justice? Should not evil be punished?

A. Responsibility for the outcome lies with each individual. (verses. 24-25, 29-30).

Because each individual chose it!!!
There is no justified blaming of God. He sent Wisdom crying out to each individual. Often many, perhaps hundreds or even thousands of times. Nor can any human make God angry or vengeful. Don’t fool yourself, you are not that powerful, none of us is. If He is angry or vengeful toward us it is simply because Justice and Holiness require it. If anything, we should be stunned in wonderment about how He could ever see any of us in any other way!
For each of us has sinned and fallen short. And each of us has ignored Wisdom’s cries of salvation and indignantly swapped away her hand of mercy.

B. The results of rejection of Jesus are horrific.

1. Whirlwind of loss .
Proverbs 1:28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
Proverbs 1:29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:
Proverbs 1:30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
Proverbs 1:31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

In this whirlwind of destruction “which some have invited self too”, much is lost.
They lose any further opportunity for Wisdom.
They have lost their last chance – any hope of repentance, change or mercy.

They chose not to fear God and thus lost any chance of relationship with Him, receiving His blessings.
2. Whirlwind of natural consequences .
Proverbs 1:31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

So what verse 31 is saying “You become what you do and you get what you have worked for and deserved.”
Much of this suffering and destruction occurs right in this present life according to the absolute law of Cause & Effect.

3. Whirlwind of death . (verse. 32)

Note that death here is caused by chosen, individual waywardness and complacency in ignoring, mocking and running away from Wisdom and Truth – and ultimately from GOD HIMSELF.
a. Physical
b. Spiritual
It may not be very popular to say, but the truth is that this whirlwind of physical and spiritual death means a chosen and deserved eternity in Hell!

What does that mean?
1) It is the eternal absence of and separation from God and thus His blessings. Imagine that you no longer receive any love, but are surrounding only by anger, bitterness and hatred. Imagine that there is not even the hope of peace, but only chaos and suffering. Imagine what it would be like to be eternal separated from your loved ones? Or worse, to know that they too are suffering this indescribable abomination? There is no light, but that of fire! There is no beauty, but only ugliness and disgust.

People who sadly have went through destruction think “Well it can’t get any worse….YES IT CAN IF “WE DIE WITHOUT JESUS”. Now many are feeling desperate due to this Corona Virus (I have been asking how much of this is to prepare for NWQO, Money system, way to explain when thousands disappear in a blink of an eye). People are fighting over TOILET PAPER!!!

2) Which ever way you want to look at it, it is either a total separation from other humans as well, or eternal confinement with the most abominable and miserable company!

3) Our conscience, memory and desires remain eternal but without any hope of fulfillment.

Luke 16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
Luke 16:21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
Luke 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
Luke 16:23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
Luke 16:24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
Luke 16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
Luke 16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
Reading this portion of scripture I don’t see any comfort, no beer, not even a drop of water, nobody to pal around with. So all the great things of destruction look pretty small in comparison.
3) It is forever!

It has been said that eternity is as long as it would take, if it were possible, to take all of the water in the universe and fill a cosmic tub with it. Then, let it drop out one tiny droplet at a time. Then, when all of the water has drained out one drop at a time, then not even 1 hour of eternity has gone by. You have much more yet to go. NEVER ENDING!!!

Billy Sunday put it this way: As long as it would take, if it were possible, for a little sparrow to take 1 grain of sand from the earth, fly 1 million light years away and deposit that grain of sand. Fly 1 million light years back to earth and peck up another grain of sand. Fly 1 million light years out and deposit it again. So on and so on until the earth was no more. Even then, as long as it would take, not even 1 moment of eternity has passed. There is that much and more to go…

Many may also wonder, but how can a loving God condemn people to such a horror? The “simple” answer is because He is a Holy and Just God and perfect justice requires it. KEEP IN MIND HE SENDS NO ONE TO HELL IT IS CHOSEN BY SELVE WHEN REJECTING JESUS. OUR PRECIOUS AND WONDERFUL HOLY GOD WOULD HAVE NONE SPEND ETERNITY IN HELL THAT CHOICE IS MADE BY EACH INDIVIDUAL.

John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
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.
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
John 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
John 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Romans 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
Romans 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
Romans 6:19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
Romans 6:20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.
Romans 6:21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
Romans 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Every time God’s love is mentioned in the New Testament, it is mentioned through Jesus! No Jesus, no love.
V. TO EMBRACE GOD’S WISDOM IS TO LIVE IN ETERNAL PEACE ,
AND SECURITY . (Verse. 33)

And there is the GOOD NEWS! There is a way out – a way to avoid the whirlwind of destruction. And that way is the Old Rugged Cross.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is the way out!

HAVE YOU BEEN TO JESUS?
1) Tell others of Wisdom’s call to them.
2) Warn others of the whirlwind of destruction.
3) Tell others of the promise of eternal peace & security in Jesus.
No matter what destruction or breakout of the newest health risk remember none of it is bigger than our Mighty god. I am not saying it is awful for people to suffer but realize we are herew but a moment, and then eternity and HOW LONG IS ETERNITY?
AS THE BIBLE SAYS “KEEP OUR EYES ON JESUS”

YOU ARE ALL IN MY DAILY PRAYERS!!!

THE OLD RUGGED CROSS
On a hill far away, stood an old rugged Cross
The emblem of suffering and shame
And I love that old Cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain
And I’ll cherish the old rugged Cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged Cross
And exchange it some day for a crown
To the old rugged Cross, I will ever be true
Its shame and reproach gladly bear
And they’ll call me some day to my home far away
Where His glory forever I’ll share
And I’ll cherish the old rugged Cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged Cross
And exchange it some day for a crown
I will cling to the old rugged Cross
And exchange it some day for a crown
Love and prayers
Cheryl

WE NEED TO LIVE OUR LIFE ACCORDING TO HOW THE LORD TELLS TO.

WORDS FOR TODAY!!! TIME PASSES QUICKLY!!! HOW DO WE WANT THE LORD TO FIND US WHEN HE TAKES US HOME!!!

Have a wonderful and blessed day!! We need to wake up to the truth of all the wickedness going on. First we need to be trusting Jesus as Lord and Savior he is the only way to Heaven. Only two choices Heaven or hell, no in between, after our last breath nobody will pray us into heaven. The Precious Lord and Savior gave us the only way to heaven, and that is just through Jesus Christ. We are in the last days (I truly believe he will be taking his own home very soon); he tells us in the last days people will not want to hear truth and sound doctrine. We know this is the truth of the verses in his word that tells us gives us warning of the last days.
2Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
2Timothy 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isaiah 5:21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
Isaiah 5:22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
Isaiah 5:23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

So many calling evil good and good evil. The enemy is misleading so many into A REPROBATE MIND. God tells us some will be turned over to this. We have people being paid to cause division, to cause hatred. Racism has to be taught and many of the schools, and colleges teach this to many. Sadly many homes teach their children to hate others due to their skin color.
If we are honest with ourselves we know these times talked of in Isaiah and 2 Timothy are happening right now. infants, and children are being murdered pretty much for sport. We have prominent officials calling sex with children okay, just their orientation. We have people murdered over the candidate they vote for. If you are a Christian how can you begin to think Jesus is okay with any of this.


This morning my heart was broken as I read on Instagram people with black and brown skin (I say it this way because the Lord doesn’t separate us by race He says we all are the human race); I watched as these people some of whom I pray for daily, mock and treat black on black crime as a joke. They made it sound as if a black infant, child, adult, killed by the same color as them it is okay with them. I sure hope people that say they love Jesus and are trusting him realize the Lord is not happy with the murder of anyone no matter what color the victim or murderer is. I watch as some threated others in the same color skin for not voting as they are told too. (Now we are all against slavery but controlling someone’s mind, vote, how educated or uneducated for not following the “Vote as the rest of us”, “NEVER SNITCH unless it is someone of a different color”, “Only like who we say you need to like” to me this is just as awful and wicked as slavery).
He does however separate us by saved and unsaved, Jew and Gentile. To hate someone with a different skin color is telling the mighty, righteous Holy God he messed up.
We have big money funding people to cause division and race riots. The Lord made us all and he doesn’t look at our skin color he looks at our hearts. He sees saved, and unsaved, he sees Jew and Gentile. To hate or harm someone due to their skin color it is telling the Mighty Lord God he messed up. Some go along with this because they did lose a family member by someone of a different color but what does the Lord say to us?

Two wrongs never make a right. We all will stand before the Lord someday and answer for all we did with the precious life the Lord, the Creator, gave us. We will also answer for the wicked choices we made. Now if we are saved we will not lose our salvation but he does say we will suffer loss. Right now we don’t see the Lord face to face so it is far easier to lie, hate, cheat, murder but in heaven we will be looking right at him and can you imagine the shame we will feel.

Romans 12:17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
Romans 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Romans 12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
Romans 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Did you realize if we take over and make vengeance our own, the Lord is not going to give out his punishment (which his is harsher), I have seen this in my own life with some people that truly hurt me. It wasn’t until I prayed for these people and left it in the Lord’s hands that I seen the Lord truly take care of it his way.


Luke 17:1 Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!
Luke 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
Luke 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
Luke 17:4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him.

Let us be honest with ourselves, how can we truly believe all that is going on in this wicked world right now by whites, by blacks, by brown skinned, can we agree it is wrong. Can we be honest with ourselves we can find good and bad in every group of people, white, black, brown, yellow, red, Police officers, Politicians, Doctors, Teachers, Pastors, Parents, Grandparents. We can also find bad in everyone if that is what we are looking for.

James 1:19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
James 1:20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
James 1:21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
James 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
James 1:23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

Proverbs 26:4 Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
Proverbs 26:5 Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.
Proverbs 26:6 He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet, and drinketh damage.

Please call upon Jesus today according to the word of God, we either belong to Jesus or to Satan. Please call upon Jesus today. Time is short and we know not what a day will bring. If you believe in prayer please pray for our children to be protected, and for the lost to come to salvation.


John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
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.
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
John 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
John 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Some Things to Consider

Somethings to Think About!!!
First if you have no peace and realize no true peace comes from anything or anyone in this world. True Peace comes only from Jesus. If you’re saved and not serving him or in fellowship with like minded believers peace is most likely missing from your life. Someone once told me I don’t need fellowship. I can pray and read at home; well guess what being in fellowship is not just for you. The Lord gives us all different talents and gifts and there is someone you could be helping with your talent. 


When I got saved, born-again and the first maybe ten years. I would hear preaching about the last days, about the rapture, about spiritual battles. Oftentimes I would say I don’t want to hear of all this sad stuff, just the good things of Heaven, enjoying the good old hymns, and loving fellowship which was told to me according to the word of God to be very important.


Hebrews 10:24  And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Hebrews 10:25  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. 


Well as I grew spiritually I did want to learn more, wanted truth preached, (even if it hurt), wanted to live for Jesus. I also would think when I read of the last days it would NEVER happen in my lifetime. 


2Timothy 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2Timothy 3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 2Timothy 3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 2Timothy 3:4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 2Timothy 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2Timothy 3:6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 2Timothy 3:7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 
We are here things I never thought possible are happening before our very eyes. The Bible says as in the days of Noah. We are there as in the days of Noah. 
I have not lived the perfect life and let my Savior and family down on occasion, but I am forgiven and when the Trumpet sounds I will be going to heaven with my brothers and sisters in the Lord. Please make sure the same thing for yourself.
Now is the time to come to Jesus, now is not the time to put off salvation. If you are saved now is not the time to walk away. If you have not been serving him, being in fellowship with like minded believers please make a choice to do so TODAY!!!
Romans 1:22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, Romans  1:23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Romans  1:24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Romans  1:25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. Romans  1:26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: Romans  1:27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. Romans  1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Romans  1:29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Romans  1:30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Romans  1:31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Romans  1:32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. 


This world will not get better, most in the world have already been turned over to a reprobate mind. Look around at what is going on and tell me that what is going on is normal. California is trying to make pedophilia legal. Some couples having children are saying “I will let them decide their gender”, gay marriage, people calling evil good and good evil. Some cities are saying “we will not persecute the looters if they took stuff they needed”. With this pandemic no social gatherings but people were allowed to get abortions, get liquor, riot, and loot in some cases mobs of hundreds.
Isaiah 5:20  Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:21  Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Isaiah 5:22  Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Isaiah 5:23  Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! 

Christians now prayer is more needed than ever before. We need to get the gospel out to as many as possible.

CHRISTIAN WHAT ARE WE DOING?

Isaiah 51 5
WHAT ARE WE DOING CHRISTIANS?
I have been burdened to write this for Christians and the lost if they will hear.
I will tell you something a Great Brother in the Lord has said many times….”If the shoe doesn’t fit don’t wear it.” If it does prick your heart don’t listen to me but pray and ask the Lord what you as an individual should do.
Proverbs 27:1  Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
Proverbs 27:2  Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.
Proverbs 27:3  A stone is heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool’s wrath is heavier than them both.
Proverbs 27:4  Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?
My heart is breaking watching and hearing many Christians get on soapboxes defending what is “important” to them. I am guilty of this too. The following verses are from the Lord:
Mark 16:15  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Luke 14:22  And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room.
Luke 14:23  And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
Time is running out, and many too many lost out there in the world dying daily. Sadly we are defending our stand on so many things that truly in eternity will mean nothing. However time wasted, witnessing opportunities missed, living for self will matter in eternity.
I get it, it is so difficult to focus some days on getting the gospel to this wicked lost world. However we can’t expect lost people running around destroying things, making ridiculous demands, some days the first thought is not for the lost,  it is easy somedays to say let them have at it and see how it works out for them. When we look at the verses the Lord doesn’t give any  if, only, “witness only if they are kind”, “witness only if they won’t mock you”, “witness only if they have never caused harm”. Please take time to pray and ask the Lord to guide our mouths, our hearts, our witness.
 Some people once they see us angry and giving our opinions on the government, police, rescue people, pastors, blacks, whites, on public forums they may never listen to the gospel again. Now I am in no way saying to say only what they want to hear, I am not saying lower your standards on living for the Lord; but keep in mind the lost are watching and don’t miss a thing. They come up with enough ideas on why they don’t want the truth, let’s not give them any more excuses. This is another reason why family is the toughest to witness to, they remember every single sin, mistake, bad choice we ever made. I have a relative I haven’t talked to in a few years when I would try to give him the gospel he would remind me of all the stupid sinful things I did from the age of 10-18.
Sometimes we need to say it gracefully. Sometimes we need to think matters out before addressing them. Sometimes we need to say okay let it go as it isn’t going anyway but in the wrong direction.
How many times when we get into heated debates do we keep going because our pride won’t give up. The following are only a couple verses on what the Lord tells us about pride.
The enemy is causing so many distractions and diversions and we who are saved, born=again children of the most high need to stop getting in these traps.
Proverbs 11:1  A false balance is abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.
Proverbs 11:2  When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
Proverbs 8:11  For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
Proverbs 8:12  I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
Proverbs 8:13  The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

A FEW WORDS!!!

Matthew 24 42

 

First of all and most important; are you saved, are you born-again? Please if not Come to Jesus today. We know not what a day will bring.

Proverbs 27:1  Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
The Lord has even told us this so not just myself saying this. We also have seen in this year of 2020 so much drama, heartache, violence, death, and hate yes HATE!!
Now I know what the word of God tells us about the last days:
2Timothy 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2Timothy 3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

2Timothy 3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

2Timothy 3:4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

2Timothy 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

2Timothy 3:6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

2Timothy 3:7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
I truly trust the word of God but I have to say I never thought I would live to see these last days come so fast in my lifetime. I realize some people are pretending to be blinded by much of the wickedness, and evilness going on. Some are blaming Trump, racism, COVID, some blame the republicans, some blame the democrats. We need to blame it on SIN, and realize as in the days of Noah people were just like they are now. We need to realize when we tell God to stay out of our life he won’t force himself in our life.
Romans 1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Romans 1:29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Romans 1:30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Romans 1:31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Romans 1:32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
So ask how could people be led like sheep and believe all that the godless people fill their heads?  The verses above explain it for us. How can people be okay with defending criminals yet say not a word over the killing of babies, over babies and young children shot dead in their own homes. Face the fact that these people that the riots, violence, and destruction are over had lived a life of crime. The police would not have had any dealings with them. We have to realize if we put ourself in a dangerous, a criminal situation or hang out with those that do, the chances of having a abrupt end to life is pretty high either through Police or a criminal your hanging with. Sadly people have children out in the middle of these things and they are put in danger each time.
After all this I am saying more going on here than the COVID, racism, mask or no mask. Soon the Lord will be calling his own home. Then the tribulation and in comparison of the tribulation and what has been happening now will make these last few months look like a wonderful picnic on a beautiful sunny day with beautiful flowers, and peace. Right now the antichrist is setting up his one world government, one world religion, cashless society. The Lord is giving people one more chance. Please if you have never trusted Jesus come to him today!!
John 3:15  That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 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. John 3:17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. John 3:20  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. John 3:21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Time Is Short; He will Be Here Very Soon

1 Corinthians 15 58

As the world becomes more wicked, violent, and vile we as people (and the Lord who created us looks at us all the same he only divides by saved and unsaved, by Jew and Gentile); he doesn’t look at us by the color of our skin he created ALL PEOPLE!! To hate someone due to the color of their skin is telling God the Mighty, Holy, and Righteous God he made a mistake. Need to put our trust in him and follow what he tells us as far as our time here. First of all the most important is salvation:
John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
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.
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

What we are watching unfold is more than COVID, more than racisim, more than division, more than wearing the masks. The Lord tells us beware of the last days the following will be happening….
2Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Timothy 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
2Timothy 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
2Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
2Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Please the Lord tells us his children to go our into the world and give the truth, the gospel, and the greatest gift ever given.
We do not know what a day will bring and we have sure seen proof of that over these last few months. The Lord will be calling all his children home, and we need to be trusting him. He warns us that man will let us down and we see that big time.
He also tells us he will take care of the evil vengeance is his, not ours. When we stand before him we will not be able to blame family, the blacks, the whites, the government, the local Pastor. He will judge us of our actions, our choices, how we spent this life he gave to us.

WE NEED TO BE IN PRAYER DAILY FOR OUR COUNTRY, FOR THE LOST, FOR THE CHILDREN. WHAT WILL THE LORD SAY TO US INDIVIDUALLY ON JUDGEMENT DAY?

1Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.
1Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1Thessalonians 5:19 Quench not the Spirit.
1Thessalonians 5:20 Despise not prophesyings.
1Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
1Thessalonians 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
1Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1Thessalonians 5:24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

Have a Wonderful and Blessed Evening!!

Gods love spread it
Have a Wonderful and Blessed Evening!!
 
People will sometimes ask me “why do you feel the need to talk about Jesus, to pray for others, to be concerned of their eternity”.  One reason is the Lord tells us in Mark:
 
Mark 16:15  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 
2Peter 3:9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 
 
One reason is God, my precious Lord and Savior tells me to go out into the world and preach the gospel. He doesn’t say “well only if you feel like it”, “when you’re not so busy”. We need to follow his commands and just as the Lord says in 2 Peter 3:9 He would have nobody perish into hell, and I feel the same way.
We have it very easy here in America sure some will mock, give the finger, throw things at street preachers…..BUT I know men in other countries that are diligently getting the gospel out and they have the threat of death.
 
Many ways we can get the gospel out tracks, mailings, talking about Jesus in the stores, at Doctor appointments. What about our very own families? Sadly we are so afraid of offending someone or being mocked we don’t make an effort with our family. I have many family members that will tell me “Don’t go see them in the hospital”, why???I will want to pray with them.We need to be more concerned about standing before the Lord and saying “No Lord I didn’t witness to brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents, because they would be offended and I would have been embarrassed”. I am not in any way saying bash them over the head with the Bible, I am not saying go and point out all their sins, we all are sinners. 
Romans 3:23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 
Romans 3:24  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 
 
Question if your relatives, or neighbors house was on fire would you stand out in front and watch and not warn them? Not want to make them feel offended that we thought they couldn’t get out on their own? 
 
Well if we figure they are good people and I don’t want to offend them I will keep quiet. Lost family, lost friends will die and go to hell and will burn forever. The flames are real and no party, no drinks in hell. It is the same as not warning someone their house is on fire, sadly hell is for all eternity.
As we can see world wide, hate, wickedness, what is evil is now good, and what was good is now evil. People all across America are buying into the narrative of racism, COVID fear, People have become so desensitized nobody wants to defend innocent life taken and will defend the criminals. Sure some are racists, some will despise someone if they are in a lower income, regardless of color. We have multi millionaires paying to cause division, to strike fear, to make people not trust people due to skin color. How many times does God talk about race? He talks of the born-again , and not born again, he talks of Jew and Gentile. We need to worry about not offending God, and to hate someone or harm someone due to the color of their skin is telling God he messed up. 
The Lord made it very clear in the last days:
2Timothy 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 
2Timothy  3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 
2Timothy  3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 
2Timothy  3:4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 
2Timothy  3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 
2Timothy  3:6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 
2Timothy  3:7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 
 
Please we are in the last days, be a witness if you’re saved, if not saved please trust Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Only two options after death, Heaven or Hell…No Purgatory, no praying for dead relatives to go to heaven. Some denominations have made millions and millions of dollars telling people we will pray for your deceased relative to go to Heaven. WRONG AND A LIE RIGHT OUT OF HELL…..
 
 
Matthew 24:5  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 
Matthew 24:6  And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 
Matthew 24:7  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 
Matthew 24:8  All these are the beginning of sorrows. 
Matthew 24:9  Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 
Matthew 24:10  And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 
Matthew 24:11  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 
Matthew 24:12  And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 
Matthew 24:13  But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 
Matthew 24:14  And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 

An Important Message

I know many of you as myself are very sad at much of the goings on in this wicked world. As the Lord warned us of things to come, and we see it in Isaiah the following:
 
Isaiah 5:20  Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 
Isaiah 5:21  Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 
Isaiah 5:22  Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: 
Isaiah 5:23  Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! 
 
For those of us that are trusting Jesus as Lord and Savior we have hope and peace, but sadness for those rejecting Jesus. Sadness for those who have neither hope or peace. 
 
The Lord also warns us of how things will be in the last days in 2 Timothy he tells us:
 
2Timothy 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 
2Timothy 3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 
2Timothy 3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 
2Timothy 3:4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 
2Timothy 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 
2Timothy 3:6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 
2Timothy 3:7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 
 
In years past I used to think how could all these things come to be. I didn’t understand there ever being a time that the Sodom and Ghmorrah would be repeated but again he tells us in Romans:
Romans 1:27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 
Romans  1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 
Romans  1:29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 
Romans  1:30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 
Romans  1:31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 
Romans  1:32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. 
 
After so long of rejecting God will turn us over to what we desire. We have free will, and he will never make anyone love him, trust him, or spend all eternity in Heaven with him if they choose not to.
 
This world is so pushing so many awful things and so many are buying right into it. There are people apologizing for the color of their skin, God created each and everyone of us; how do you suppose he feels when we hate our own skin color, or hate someone due to the color of their skin? We are telling him he did an awful job. People are idolizing criminals and yet young children being executed, murdered, and people still don’t speak up just keep defending the wicked. We have to realize the Lord tells us man will let us down, there are some wicked people in all walks of life God tells us to pray for them and to allow him to take care of the wicked…
 
Romans 12:16  Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. 
Romans  12:17  Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 
Romans  12:18  If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 
Romans  12:19  Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 
Romans  12:20  Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 
Romans  12:21  Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. 
 
Please don’t listen to me PRAY AND ASK THE LORD what he wants of you. Please if you’re not saved, born-again come unto Jesus TODAY…Time is short..we are not promised tomorrow…When we stand before the Lord and all will someday we will not be able to blame anyone for our bad behaviors. Our choices that we make, we will answer for good ones and bad ones. Pray for one another, pray for the lost, the hurting, the children. 
 
So much more I could say but most important is for all of us, black, white, red, Jew, Gentile (which is how the Lord sees us not by color of our skin). He also sees only his children and the rejectors which are of Satan (the Lord tells us this). The important thing is to call upon Jesus today. If you are his child through his precious blood, and his grace’ then pray, and pray more for all the world to see the Truth, hope, and peace in Jesus.
 
 
John 3:15  That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 
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. 
John 3:17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 
John 3:18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 
John 3:19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 
John 3:20  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 
John 3:21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

CALL UPON JESUS TODAY

Revelation 3 5

 

Have a Wonderful and Blessed Week!!!
My Pastor had another amazing message again today. The only bad part is it grieves my heart to know what will go on for those rejecting Jesus!!! We look around in the world and see so much violence, people concerned about self and not of others,so many covet everything they don’t have, boasting on self and not of good things, without natural affection lovers of pleasures and not of God, they hate God….Here these verses in 1 Timothy the Lord tells us what the last days will be like;

2Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2Timothy 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Timothy 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
2Timothy 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
2Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
2Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Daily my heart breaks watching such wickedness, and destruction. I want to remind those rejecting Jesus what we see now and it is extremely bad, this will be like a picnic in a beautiful park compared to what will take place when Jesus meets his children in the clouds. I was sick to my stomach the other day as I witnessed to a lady in a dollar store. She said she feels bad for satan because “He was given a bad rap by God”.
We need to realize “WE as Humans” look at someone who basically has never been to jail, never cheated on a spouse, never stole. People will say we are basically good. WRONG God tells us our hearts are wicked.

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Jermiah 17:10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

The Lord also tells his children the following commandment:
John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
John 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Christian do others know we are his disciples, do they know the Lord Jesus died for all people, ALL means all, black, white, yellow, red. ALL it is not how many times we did something nice for others (there are many really nice people in hell). It is not how much money we have donated or have in the bank. It is not who we know, or social status. It is not baptism, it is not your denomination.
I will say at least 90% of what we see happening is spiritual, it is so obvious the one world government, cashless society, one world religion.

Please if your not trusting Jesus for salvation call upon him today!!
John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
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.
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
John 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
John 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Are We Praying? We need to Look Towards Jesus and Not at the distractions of Satan.

1 Corinthians 15 57
Words for Today!!! THE WICKEDNESS IN THIS WORLD!! Call Upon The Lord!!!
Have we forgotten what all the Lord has done for us? Have we forgotten to pray in these wicked times? Are we so caught up in the distractions of the enemy we have no time for the Lord? What do you think the Lord is thinking looking at all the wickedness? His heart must be so grieved at what we have become!!
Matthew 27:25  Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
Matthew  27:26  Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
Matthew  27:27  Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
Matthew  27:28  And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
Matthew  27:29  And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
Matthew  27:30  And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
Matthew  27:31  And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
Matthew  27:32  And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
Matthew  27:33  And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
Matthew  27:34  They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
Matthew  27:35  And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
Matthew  27:36  And sitting down they watched him there;
Matthew  27:37  And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
Do you really think if Jesus didn’t want to go to that cross, if he didn’t want to pay for our sins, anyone of them soldiers could have held him against his will??
No way he could have spoke and all would have been killed. He went through all this for each one of us. He did it for everyone, all people all over the world regardless of color, income, nationality.
Even through  knowing  all of this, and what he did, why do we doubt his power, his forgiveness? We all have an opinion of all that we see going on right now. The Lord told us the last days will be as in the days of Sodom and Gomohhra rampant sin, idolatry, lust, fornication, PRIDE.
Ephesians 5:11  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Ephesians 5:12  For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
Ephesians 5:13  But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
Ephesians 5:14  Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
Ephesians 5:15  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
Ephesians 5:16  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Read these verses and ask are we not seeing this right now.
2Timothy 3:1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2Timothy 3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Timothy 3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
2Timothy 3:4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
2Timothy 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2Tmothyi 3:6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
2Timothy 3:7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
We can all voice our opinion on all the wicked events at hand but…..have we been in prayer for our country? Have we been in prayer for one another? Have we called out to the Lord for peace, salvation of the lost, and eyes to be opened. Too many people are being dragged right into Satan’s plans of causing division, causing us to hate and the Lord tells us not to hate. We are seeing the outcome of not keeping the Lord as our focus, and it is caused from denying God and making ourselves God. This is all caused by sin and allowing our flesh to rule us. This is what sin can do to a nation, to people of all races; which by the way the only race the Lord sees is the human race. He looks at us as Saved going to heaven with him for all eternity, or Lost rejecting him and spending eternity in hell. At the judgement seat we will not be able to say I did this because of the black person, I did this because of the white man, I did this because my wife, my husband, the government, the Police. Do any one of us really believe God the creator, he who parted the red sea, gave sight to the blind, and raised himself and others from the dead can’t see what is going on in anyone of our lives? He knows our every thought, our every hurt, our every tear. Do you know he has our tears in heaven (not sure how that works but it sure shows who he is). Did you know sometimes he doesn’t intervene because we try and handle it yourself thinking I know better than you God. We as PEOPLE need to get on our knees in prayer and get over ourselves, and ask the Lord what he would have us to do. If we are making choices that are questionable ask yourself if Jesus was sitting here with me would I continue on this path. People also need to take responsibility and accountability for all the choices we have made.
John 13:34  A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
John 13:35  By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
John 14:23  Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
John 14:24  He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
1John 4:7  Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
1John 4:8  He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
After what he has done for us, maybe it is time to do as he would have us to do according to him and not ourself.
 Please pray!!

Have We Tried Praying!!!

John 13 v34

 

PRAYERS FOR YOU ALL AND FOR THIS COUNTRY!!!
If only we prayed more diligently….We are living in very horrific times, we are seeing so much happen that the Lord told us about in his word. We also have the enemy throwing distraction and division in mega amounts. Sadly too many people are letting Satan get the upper hand instead of praying.

If only all people everywhere would PRAY!! Just think about the power given to us from the Lord with prayer. Instead of anger, hatred, destruction, and turning away from the Mighty God, Savior and Redeemer (who is far bigger than all we are seeing). If we would put all this negative energy on our knees in prayer we would change things, we could right the wrong. Why is it so important to take the world’s way instead of God’s way. I agree racism, murder,harming children, rape, robbery on any level is wrong, God sees us as saved, and unsaved, as Jew, or gentile not as black, white, yellow, red. He also knew things would happen as they are and he gave us bible for that…..

Romans 12:17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
Romans 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Romans 12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
Romans 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Doing things, reacting to things according to self, pride, anger is not working let us try what the Lord has said in his word. We, everyone that has ever been born will stand before the Lord someday, we will answer for our own actions, we will not be able to say “Lord it wasn’t my fault my husband didn’t love me as your word says”. “Lord don’t be mad at me did you see what my neighbor, relative, _______ who ever did” Fill in the blank for your hurt.
This is to all people not any certain color of people let us pray for our country, our world, our government. Prayer changes so much and we don’t access the power. We will be so ashamed standing before the Lord face to face when we realize he should have been the first one we went too.

The following are a couple examples of prayer warriors.
George Mueller–George was one amazing man of God, and God used him mightily for His glory. When Mr. Mueller founded Ashley Down orphanage in Bristol, England, his orphanage would end up caring for 10,024 orphans by the time he passed away. What is even more amazing is that he never once asked for money. All he did was pray to God.
Elijah–1Kings 18:30-46 Got huge prayers answered
Hannah–(1 Sam. 1:11).
Peter–is in prison for preaching the gospel; the church prayed for his release.Acts 12:5-11
Moses– (Exodus 33:18).
Daniel–a man very faithful in praying was saved from the lions, and fire, and..Daniel 2:17-18.
Of course Jesus who prayed regularly….

1Thessalonians 5:15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
1Thessalonians5:16 Rejoice evermore.
1Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.
1Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1Thessalonians 5:19 Quench not the Spirit.
1Thessalonians 5:20 Despise not prophesyings.

Please let us pray for all first come to salvation, pray for a safer world for our children, pray for spiritual protection. Sadly when the saved are taken home via the Rapture, all we are seeing now will be a birthday party in comparison to the tribulation. The enemy, the antichrist will not care about feelings, racism, children having food, and safety. He wants to steal our joy so we don’t get busy with prayer and reaching the lost, He is very good at what he does as we can see in these wicked days.

Love and Prayers in Christ
