Grace To You And Peace From God

Galatians 3:5
So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard? The answer is by having faith you believe. 


 It is not always what you see. The question is why do you have to see it first? Why not believe, rather the question and doubt?

His Greatness

Contrary to popular belief, there are driving forces that man has no control over. One has to wonder after all of these billions of years why so many question the mighty power of God.

We Have Not Seen What Is To Come

1 Corinthians 2:9

However, as it is written:

“What no eye has seen,
    what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”
    the things God has prepared for those who love him


For many the belief in God is hard to grasp. However for the believer, there is no doubt.

Am I My Brothers Keeper?

Romans 12:17-21
Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written,“Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

It is very easy to dismiss these words as passive. Dishonorable. The talk of a bible toting Jesus freak. Yes, many do and many have continue using this passage as that.Here is the abundantly clear message. Just because evil steps to you does not mean that you have to step to it in the same fashion. In fact the devils manifesto will whip you everytime. No, this passage says the only thing that you can count on is bigger then you and evil. Disarm your enemy. He or she will not expect the nonchalant ness. You see the enemy likes to be savvy, cunning and think that they can go through their paths being predictable and full of destruction. Yes, disarm them by not engaging. This does not mean lie down and whimp out. Just the opposite. The battle is not yours its the lords. When you put it in his hands he will give you instruction. There is nothing like the lords word or his army. Remember who got tossed out of it.

The More Things Are Different The More They Are The Same

If we look back at one family in the Bible that can be identified and compared to any family in today's times it could be the family of King David. So many ups and downs. Many many sins were sewn through out his life and his children's lives. The one thing that is distinct through out his time on earth. God never gave up on him. Ever. The same applies in this period.

Psalm 37

The Lord makes firm the steps
    of the one who delights in him;
though he may stumble, he will not fall,
    for the Lord upholds him with his hand.

When Our Body Dies

It is customary to celebrate death in our country. A right of passage if you will for our love ones. The body turns to dust. If one is saved the soul returns to its rightful place.
God wants us to celebrate the living. That is done through Jesus. Who sacraficed his life for us to do that very thing. Live!

Ecclesiastes 12:7

And the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

I Rejoice In The Lord Greatly

Philippians 4: 8-9
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Steadfast Is my Love

Mark 11:25
And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
We have to remember to forgive and except people for who they are. This may be easier said then done. The saving grace is it can be done. God does it for us every day.

Oh Happy Day

Imagine waking up every day in your 30's with a mission to save as many as you can. And oh by the way you knew that one of your crew was going to sell you out for pennies on the dime. You had mad men chasing you. Religious leaders condemning you. But you got up everyday feeding people who listened the word. You proved on a daily basis that there is an almighty God . And you knew ultimately that you were going to die for all of the sin in the world. Mankind would witness the pain and agony God feels when he hurts.
“‘In the last days, God says,
    I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
    your young men will see visions,
    your old men will dream dreams.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
    I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
    and they will prophesy.
I will show wonders in the heavens above
    and signs on the earth below,
    blood and fire and billows of smoke.
The sun will be turned to darkness
    and the moon to blood
    before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
And everyone who calls
    on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

Which Gate Will You Chose?

Matthew 7: 13-14

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

The Bible's New Testaments begin with the book of Matthew, the authorship is not certain, many agree that it was an apostle someone who witnessed the actual events. These stories were written after this person passed but were accounted for firsthand. What is known about this book is that it was written during a time that the Jewish faith was predominant. No matter the author. In fact no matter where this book was placed by the men in the years that the list of books and there placement was debated ( year 170), this book is very important.

The book of Matthew gives us an agenda. Tells us in lesson form what is to be. How one should act. And what the consequences are of the unclean, the unholy, the non believer. Examples to be found all over. 

Matthew 6: 22-23

“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy,your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

Matthew 6:1
Beware of practicing your piety before others in order to be seen by them; for then you have no reward from your Father in heaven.

For All Intent And Purpose

Nothing in this unforgiving world happens by chance. The universe is a living, moving, entity. Man plays an intricate part in it(the universe ). As mentiontioned in previous blog entries. Each and every one of us has choice. Choice to believe in God ,knowing that he(God) sent his son to earth in mans form to let the world know who God is and what he is capable of doing. Yes, choice. Believe or not. Life continues. There are the lost who are tortured and tormented. There are those who talk a good game. And then there are true believers, who can offer testimony to Gods giving grace and mercy.

Joel 2:12-14
Yet even now,” declares the Lord,
    “return to me with all your heart,
with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning;
    and rend your hearts and not your garments.”
Return to the Lord your God,
    for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love;
    and he relents over disaster.

Who knows whether he will not turn and relent,
    and leave a blessing behind him,
a grain offering and a drink offering
    for the Lord your God?

And The Answer Is

Luke 1:37 For nothing will be impossible with God.

We cannot change people's mindset or way of thinking. Everyone has a choice. For those who believe in God, and all that he can do, they are truly blessed. For those looking for tangible proof that God exist. I say keep looking. Seek and Ye shall find. All that can be said is,once you find God, all questions are answered. Because your faith in him and all that he does build the strongest of foundation(s). God makes ways out of no way. Believe and recieve.

Wisdom & Understanding

This is the subject that is talked about through out the Bible both in the old and new testaments. God expects us to have faith. In turn he provides us with many things. Grace and mercy. Wisdom and understanding. Peace and tranquility. And supplies all of our needs.

As I Rise

There is nothing to say to God, but thank you for showing me favor. In that I am able to rise again to a new day a new beginning. We have a chance to do so each and every day that there is breath in our bodies.
Lamination 3:22-24
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
    his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
    “therefore I will hope in him.”

It Is Said

They say history has a tendency to repeat itself. If that be the case. We can expect Jesus to come back. Are you ready? Have you done all that was asked of you? Would you recognize him? These are all things one may ask themselves. Yes history repeats. The bible tells of his coming back. 

Revelation 1:7 

Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen.

My Rightness With God

There is no special ceremony. No magic. Nothing special at all to have a relationship with the almighty God. It does not take a college degree. Nor physical and mental sacrafice to know God. All it takes is love in your heart and soul. Faith that he has you. Trust and belief that Jesus died for all of mans sins.

My God Moves Things

This generation can be called the instant want and expect to get it now generation. Things are expected to happen instantaneously. We see it in our information and how it is attained. Phones, tablets, computers. With resources high in the sky providing the means. Well us spiritual creatures have the same ability when we connect with our resource also located high in the sky. Our resource/conduit is Jesus himself. If we go through him our spiritual needs are meant as instantaneous as the downloads on the various media sources used today. We can expect forgiveness, gratification, loyalty, mercy, grace, wisdom and understanding. Yes, God provides that service with his family plan. All that is required is faith.

Exposure

We must know certain things are proven to be true. Exposure to germs causes illness. Exposure to too much sun causes burn. Exposure to torturous imprisonment causes mental disorder or death. Exposure to positivity causes creativity, longer life etc. Exposure to God opens up a whole realm of possibility.

My Love Is For Him

To boldly express your surmounting love for God is a statement that many should have on their tongues. To say everyday, I am with, I can go through no other, he is my rock and my salvation. All have God at the beginning or the end of these statements. Believe and trust in your almighty God. He can literally move mountains. Follow the simple but meaningful rules of life as it is spread throughout the Bible. Trust and believe.

We Have To Shed The Old

In order for one to be born again one must put aside ones old earthly ways. One must give up self. Which is very difficult for some. We are human. We are not perfect. Jesus suffered and died for us. We are going to fall down. Fall short. It is meant for us to waiver. We can and will listen to God, let him direct our steps. We can learn from the past. And chose to do right.

Mothers

2. Proverbs 6:20-23: "My son, observe the commandment of your father and do not forsake the teaching of your mother; bind them continually on your heart; tie them around your neck. When you walk about, they will guide you; when you sleep, they will watch over you; and when you awake, they will talk to you. For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching is light; and reproofs for discipline are the way of life.

Gods Earthly Treasures

It is such a beautiful thing to watch and hear nature at its best. Birds singing,bringing food to their young. Animals big and small on the move with their young. One has to think, man is part of this cycle. Part of this universe. And it all plays under GODS great plan, to have us all co exist.

What We Sow We Shall Reap


Galatians 6:7-8

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

Need I say more?

Our Destiny Is Controlled By No Other Then God Himself

The minute we try taking over or trying to control our lives everything seems to be more difficult. And easily turns into chaos.

This Is Who Many Deal With Daily

Revelation 12:7-9

Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
Enough said. We who walk the road of Faith, Love, Peace and happiness need to know who is out to destroy that. Continue to pray to God. Ask for favor. And do not be afraid to call on Gods own army of angels. There are legions. Amen

Surely God Is My salvation

It is written that everyone who spread the gospel literally caught hell while they walked this earth. It was not an easy task living the life God wanted you to live and preach about it. Living it for the average man or women was something that could be managed. However, when you went out to talk about Jesus and what he has done for all of mankind. Adding to that what god expects of you, you are setting yourself up for resilience. Defamation. Prison. Beheading. That was then. Let us fast forward to today. In this country these things do not happen outright ( in other countries some still practice killing Christians ) but here most are up against the wiles of the devil himself. A despicable character who uses others to do his bidding. We have to learn as men and women of God to recognize the source.

Knowing The Power Of God

There are many who profess knowing God. But do they really? Do they realize that money & donations cannot buy God. That quoting Bible verses isn't all that it takes. Going to "church" all week long ain't what it is going to take. No, it is as simple as this:

Isaiah 41:10

Fear not, for I am with you;
    be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Let God Be Your Guide

Romans 8:37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
We have to realize that there are two wars waged against mankind. One  in which man destroys himself ( the seven sins play a major role in this). Then there is spiritual warfare. A constant. Winning followers  over quite easily at times. With faith and everlasting belief in God almighty, the war is never ours it is the Lords.

Do Use The Lords Name In Vain

There are so many wolves in sheep's clothing out there. So many who are convincing enough to gather lost sheep in their folds. It is the way of the world. It take a strong willed and truly faithful servant of The Lord to descern the difference. 
Jeremiah 7:8-11

Don’t be fooled into thinking that you will never suffer because the Temple is here. It’s a lie! Do you really think you can steal, murder, commit adultery, lie, and burn incense to Baal and all those other new gods of yours, and then come here and stand before me in my Temple and chant, “We are safe!”—only to go right back to all those evils again? Don’t you yourselves admit that this Temple, which bears my name, has become a den of thieves? Surely I see all the evil going on there. I, the LORD, have spoken!

Exposing The Enemy

There is nothing more crippling then the devil attacking you directly. If you have never experienced this spiritual warfare, you have no idea who God is. In order to recieve fiery darts you have to be walking in the light . You have to know who God is. You know faith. Otherwise the devil would have nothing to do with you. You would in essence be of this world wandering around lost. Living soley on human wherewithal. 
James 1:5-8
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.  But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord;  he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.

For Everything There Is A Season

Galatians 6:9
 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
