Walk with ME….hello world

I spoke to a man who was so sure he was saved even though he doesn’t read his bible, because ‘ I don’t understand what I am reading’, he doesn’t go to church because, ‘I work all the time”, he doesn’t pray unless “I have a real problem and I can’t work it out myself.”  But his comment was:  ” I know I am saved because when I was seven years old, I joined the church and the feeling I got was so wonderful and it felt so good. I am a member of the church since I was 7 years old and I know and believe that I am saved because I remember the feeling. 

He is now  53 years old.  When I asked him about his relationship with the Lord, his reply was, “I believe in God. I don’t read the bible because I don’t understand it, but I believe in God.”  When I asked him about his relationship with other Christian’s, his comment was, “I am not a people person. I don’t like being around people.  I don’t care about them. I believe in God and that is all that matters.”  When I asked him about lying to others, he replied, “sometimes you have to lie not to hurt someone or to get what you want.”

He compared himself with a woman I know who is living with a man she is not married too, who believes in God, goes to church, does not read her bible either and does not like people period.  She has no friends, only the man she lives with matters to her.  When he called her name and compared himself to her, I just listened quietly and thought….. Comparing yourself to other people is not God’s idea of comparison for life, living and pursuit of happiness.

God has a WORD for people:

              Walking with Me is not a complex endeavor, my Child    Many people claim that I  make too many rules, or that I require too much of them.  But   what do I require of My children?  I made it clear through My prophet Micah.

  I desire that My people act justly toward others—-being fair,  honest, filled with integrity.  That they love mercy and pass it along to everyone they meet.  And that they simply walk with Me, in humility and thankfulness for all I have done.

   When My Son came, he said it another way:  He told His listeners to love Me with all their heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love their neighbors as themselves.      Different words, same message.

   Love Me.  Love Others.   Not complicated at all. 

God does not require anything of unbelievers except they REPENT, agree with His Word about His Son;   Jesus died on the cross for sin, shed blood that you can have eternal life and ask Him to allow Jesus to come into their heart and make their lives pleasing to the Father.

Simple, yet direct to the point.  Hard? No, repenting is believing God and agreeing that you are a sinner in need of a savior and simply asking Him for One.   He already did everything necessary for you to get saved.

Repent, Ask, Believe…..

what more do you think you need to do?  He already done it all for you.

My Times In His Hand…hello world

I have been gone for a while…have been taking some time alone with Him…have been pondering the times we live in and how it is going out there for you, wondering if you are  feeling like we are living in a ‘wonderland’ of what is going to happen next…..

During this pondering-time, I have come to the conclusion that we are called for such a time as this.  I know my times are in His hand. All of us that have been born in 1948 and forward are in the last generation with the God of all times and all circumstances.   He has called us to be His servants  in this time and place and at just the right time and in the order to usher in change, hope or deliverance to those we come in contact with on a daily basis.

He has established us where we are today and has called us to this exact time, this exact place, these exact circumstances, all the situations we run into, every person we come in contact with is part of our purpose.   He knows our fears, He knows He can trust us and He knows that we will follow His Word and do it.   He is the promise that we must give to others, He is the peace that passes all understanding that we can provide as we are faithful to obey His very word to us to go and make disciples.

He who has called us is faithful to perform that for which He is sending us to do.  Seeing what God is doing and getting in there to be His hands,  His smile, His listening ear; we can know for certain that with God all things are possible and rest in the knowledge and the assurance that we have been called to such a time as this  and know that our times are in His hand.

We need, as I have come to understand, to rest in  God.  I mean REST in GOD!

Don’t do anything unless He tells you to do it and get busy when He speaks and DO IT! The doing will be easy and you will be at peace in the doing.  His work is His doing and He will give you the grace and the authority to do it.

Ester 4:14

Guidance…Hello World

Heavenly Father,

We thank you for guiding our lives and leading us at all times. Show us your way so that we might know your will. We ask you to be our vision, our eyes, our all.  You are our lamp, O Lord, and we are asking you to lead us beside still waters and for you to restore our soul. Show us your ways O Lord and teach us your path.  We will thank you for the knowledge of your will and ask  that you will guide us with judgment and you will teach us your ways.

Your Word promises  us Lord, that you always order the steps of a good person, and you delight in the way of a person who is following you. With all our heart, Father, We want to be the kind of person who brings joy and delight to your heart. 

Send out your light and truth. Let them lead us.  You are our God forever and ever, you will be our guide even unto death. Your Word is a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path.  Cause us to know the way in which we should walk.  Attend unto our prayers, Father, as we incline  our ears to your Word.

You have given us your Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth. Thank you for your guidance in our prayer unto you.  Lord, you see the situation and you know what is being asked.  Open our eyes to see Truth and help us to hear what the Spirit is saying about the situation. 

In Jesus Name, we ask for guidance.

Hello World….Politically Correct

I am not A-political,   B-political  or politically correct.   I am a child of the living God and He is king over me.

I was reading  the Word of God and ran across this scripture in the bible.  1 Samuel 8: 6-7  But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord, and the Lord said unto Samuel,  Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto you….For they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.

I have heard from many people this comment:  “God’s will is being done in America with the choice of our government.  Look how many people voted a second time for the president.”

If you pray and the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob answers you with this being the question, “God did you make it so that we should go here again?”  I believe you would get the same answer that Samuel got.  It is the will of the people to have what they have because they have rejected God as being KING over them. 

How have we rejected God, you ask?    Let me count the ways.    Voted to put God out of school.  Voted to put God out of our court houses.  Voted to put God out of our hospitals.  Voted to put God off our money. Voted to put God out of our government.  Some folks have even voted to put God out of their churches.  Made laws against prayer at the school football games,  soccer games, basket ball games,  softball games.   So, when you reject God…….Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say…..   YOU GET WHAT YOU ASK FOR.

Are you happy now?

Hello World….Dreams

                Sometimes you hold back and you don’t talk very openly about Jesus Christ because you know that’s controversial. Listen, don’t hold back! That’s the power for answered prayer – Jesus’ Name. It’s the power that clarifies the real issue to people. Jesus is who they have to deal with. You’re not deciding about my belief. You’re deciding about Jesus. That’s where the power is to change lives.   Daily Bible Guide 

That is a direct quote from a site on the internet that stated the reason people don’t speak up. I don’t have the power to change anyone in any way.  I can only tell you what He did for me, is doing for me and what I believe He will do for me in the future.  I have to deal daily with my life before Him and if I am doing what I think He wants me to do.   You have to deal with Him and your life in your own way.  My best friend told me that for years, she would hear the Lord speaking to her and she would listen and within hours forget what He had said to her.  She said it bothered her so much that she decided to get a pen and notebook and write down what He was saying to her and write down her prayers. She told me that action changed her life.  She could remember what He was telling her and she could go back and see the answers to prayers she had prayed.  I do the same now, because I forget things if I don’t write them down.  Like a dream I had a couple of weeks ago. 

I had a dream that He told me to tell my class at Sunday School. I got ready, took my bible and got there early so I could write down my dream to tell the class. Then I thought, I will remember it. They will be in class in about 15 minutes.  Class started, I remembered and told everyone, “as soon as everyone gets seated, I have to tell you about this dream I had last night.”  We did our morning prayers, prayer request, took up the Sunday School offering and I told them I would tell them about the dream after we finished the lesson for the morning.  We finished the lesson and it was almost time to dismiss class so I told them I would tell them next Sunday Morning. As soon as church was over, I would write down the dream I thought. 

When I got home from church, I thought about the dream and told my husband not to let me forget to write down the dream I had last night. “OK.” he said to me. Right before bedtime, he said, ‘did you write down the dream?’  I said, “What dream?”  He said, “The one you asked me to remind you to write down.”  I stood there for a moment and racked my brain. . . . . . .   the dream was gone.

Still to this day, I can not remember the dream.  When He tells me/you something,  we need to either do it right then or write it down so we can remember what He told us. The enemy is out to steal, kill and destroy and he does.  The enemy stole God’s dream right from me because I didn’t obey as I was told. 

What is it that He is asking you to do daily?  Where is He leading you?  When are you going to get on the path and do it? Why aren’t you running the race as He directed?    How many times is it going to take for you to catch the dream and fly with it?

Ask, Knock, Seek.

Hello World…Death produces What?

Do you have life?   Real life?  Life that is satisfactory to where you are going,  what you are doing?   Are you happy in this life?  Are you asking, ‘death produces what?’

    Truly, truly, I say unto you, except a kernel  of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abides alone: but if it die, it brings forth much fruit.    John 12:24

For a long time this verse had bothered me.   How can something dead bring forth much fruit….. and then I saw the light?  This was an allegory on New Life.    New Life comes from the death of the old life and you can not physically die to cause this to happen.   You must look at the wheat seed as your  life.  When you plant  seed, you must plow the ground, place the seed in the dirt, water it and the soil will do the work to destroy it, so that this single seed can sprout and produce more seed or fruit.   When you begin to look at your life and see  death in this way you are beginning to   rethink your situation and life.  Do you know what death produces? Let us look at a person from the past:

This person was a mean, hateful, cursing, drinking,   X-rated movie addict by night and a sweet elite one as needed, demure clean-cut human being by day.  Lost as a goose in a storm, didn’t believe in anything concerning heaven, hades or anything in between.   Detested people except for only chosen few who were of the same spirit.   We will call this person  the ‘Elite One” so as not to name names and cause any discomfort to them.   I will not say whether they are male or female, red, yellow, black or white.  The Elite One was a very unhappy individual and expressed that by the way they talked to other people.  

The Elite One had a mom and dad, brothers and sisters and did not care much for any of them.  Anytime the family was around, the EO, as I will say from here on, always got into an argument with someone over something no matter how trivia the matter.   Holidays were miserable, birthdays were worse,  life was a fight every time EO was present.   One day a member of the family told EO, we are not going to be coming back to any family outings or holiday celebrations.  EO didn’t care and said so.  EO began to lose friends, family members stopped calling, workers that were close began to move on to other friends and EO became alone except for the spouse who was of the same spirit and loved the fights and arguments and movies.

One day EO was sitting in the kitchen having a cuss  fight with spouse and got up angry and said many things later regretted but could not take back.   EO just knew spouse was going to leave and then  ‘ all alone am I’ was going to be a way of  life.   They parted ways for 24 hours, but spouse came back and said, “No way am I leaving, there is  the  door if you want to go, if not learn to live with it.”  EO could not believe spouse came back and decided to live with it. 

EO realized that living like the devil was causing a living nightmare all around and it was getting to be more than EO could tolerate.  EO fell on the knee and called out to  the savior and got gloriously saved and became a new person.   EO looked with open eyes at the Son of the living God.  The One and only Son that died an excruciating physical death. EO began to read the bible and realized that Jesus had lived on the earth.  He went about  life telling people that He could make life worth the living,  if they would believe  Him  and read His Word and learn of His life and accept what He did  for them……EO  went to Him just as EO was for new life and He gave it without any hesitation.  EO learned the pleasures of life were in the Son and that He was a giver.   A giver of abundant life.   EO was no longer afraid to die, realizing that the kernel was the life, dead and without hope, unless it was planted in the dirt and watered by the Water of Life.  Dying was laying the life of hatred and cursing, drinking, x-rated movies down and picking up the Book to learn what life was all about and begin living according to abundant life explained by the One who created EO. 

EO told me:    I looked at my life and hated it.   I felt anger and hated it   I looked all around me and finally knew ‘there is a hell and I am living in it.  The only way out of this was to lay down in the dirt of my life and let the Son water me with His word so I could grow up and bring forth fruit.

EO grew old.  EO has abundant life and many, many friends and EO’s family came back to this loving person because they saw the change.  Death produced life for EO.

My last word on this is;   if your life has any similarities to EO’s life and you don’t  like the life you were born with, try being born again and see how that works for you.

Hello World…Gift God part 3

In the days of Noah, it is the same today.

What were the people of Noah’s day chasing?  Let us look unto the Word.

Gen. 6:9  Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations,  and Noah walked with God, and Noah begat 3 sons; Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The earth also was corrupted before God , and all the earth was filled with violence, and God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, the end of all flesh is come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence through them and behold I will destroy them with the earth.

The earth is corrupt and filled with violence. It is the same today. Do you think that I will not judge the earth and all flesh again for the violence and corruption that is upon the face of the deep?  Judgment is not based on sights and sounds. Judgment is based on righteousness and when righteousness is lost and corruption is loosed, then judgment falls on the face of the corruptions. I will destroy them with the earth.   Have I not watched long for my children to walk in holiness and righteousness by the  blood of  My Son?  Yes. And the end of all flesh is come before Me for the earth is once again filled with violence through them.

The peoples of the earth are following after the gift god. You desire gifts and rewards and fail to see that I desire you to love Me and love your neighbor. I desire you to walk in Love and in Truth, but the peoples of the earth desire gifts of gold, gifts of silver and gifts of abilities that will not transform you into lovers of God and lovers of thy neighbors.     No, the gifts you seek are not what I desire for you. I desire that you seek Me with all your heart.    Come before Me and worship in truth ad spirit and bring the sacrifice of Praise with a pure heart. I supply the abilities as I will  — not as you will and want.  You can do nothing without Me. The smell of your prayers are displeasing when you come thanking me that you are not as others —-for you are as others.  The only difference I see in any of My children is My Son’s blood washed robe draped across the putrid flesh of death that you are. Only the blood of My Son do I see when I look at the earth suits you wear upon your bones. You have no abilities that are not supplied by My hand and you cannot move one hair of your head to make it grow. You belong to Me when you accept My Son as your savior  as Lord.  A child does as the parent pleases and grows in the home of the Father as the Father provides.

Do you begin to understand My Child?

Grace, My grace is sufficient for you, My Child. Without grace, you are a natural person who lives in a natural world walking in the natural flesh that you were born in. Grace is the manifestation of My Son Jesus in your natural flesh, which causes death to that natural flesh when My Son is obeyed   My Son will not sin and will not abide where sin is practiced on a daily basis. How do you know that My Son lives in you?  YOU cannot continue to sin and feel good about it for the New Spirit that dwells in you is Holy.  Holiness comes by grace, which is not of works; it is a free gift I bestow on My Children when they turn to me and repent and begin the love walk. Many think they are walking the love walk when they are actually only deceiving themselves by trying to obey laws or rules and regulations of being good.  Goodness is a state of being in My Spirit that comes from Holiness.   2 Timothy 1:9 says, “WHO hath saved us, and called us with a Holy calling, not according to works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.”  You didn’t earn holiness and you can’t earn holiness, it is the gift that I bestow so that My purpose and grace maybe manifest in you.  This was decided before the world began and it was purposed that YOU might walk according to the Spirit of MY Son who gave His life for you.

Law is based on the ten commandments. Law is bondage and  grace is a free gift.. You have to work, on the basis of law, to be saved. Law is hard. Law is bondage of the body, souls and spirit and in the law, you cannot acquire salvation because I do not accept the works of man for what I freely give. Grace is freely given to all who call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and freedom from the bondage of law and sin comes by the blood that was shed at Calvary for all who will call on that name. By grace you are saved through faith in the death, burial and resurrection of My Son, Jesus Christ.

Do you wish to live under the law of sin and death or live under the grace of Almighty God who gave His Son to die for you?  How many foolish spirits have chosen law over grace because of pride?  I can do it myself, or I am not as bad as so and so, or all those hypocrites in church.  My grace is sufficient for you to overcome these bad thought that are put there by the enemy of your soul.  If you choose Law over Grace, you have also chosen judgment over pardon.

Judgment is pronounced on those who persist in unkind treatment of My Children. The treatment Israel is receiving from the hands of the Palestine people will bring judgment on that entire nation of people if they do not repent soon. In Numbers 15:32-35, a man brought judgment upon himself by breaking the law of the times. In the days of Noah, judgment fell on the entire earth and as Noah built the ark that saved him and his family, he preached the judgment was coming and nobody listened.  Gen. 6:22 Noah did according to all that I commanded him to do and when the passage of time was complete. I judged that segment of people with death and  destruction brought by the wickedness of their lives lived in the face of grace.  Gen 6:8  Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Remember “For by grace are you saved through faith; and not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.”  Eph.  2:8

What does your robe look like?  Do you have on a filthy garment or do you have on the white robe of righteousness with bells and pomegranates given by Me?  Are you walking naked in a world of your own  making or are you covered by the blood that cleanses you white as snow?  You make the choice by your faith. You choose to walk in grace or walk in law.  Call on me and I will answer you.

Continued tomorrow……

Hello World….. Responding by Faith

He asked, “Who do you say I AM?”  

Peter replied, ” You are the Christ of God.”

……And He straightly charged  them, and commanded them to tell no man that thing; saying the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes and be slain and be raised the third day, and He said unto them all; If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow me…..

Peter had the right answer. Even though he didn’t fully understand what it meant for Jesus to be the Messiah, he still recognized Jesus for who He was.

The Son asks the same questions of every person in every generation that he asked of Peter. Who do you say that I AM?  I guess people will be asking that same question until they day they die and then they will see face to face but until then we have to go on faith. …. we have to respond to God by faith…. We can not go by what other people say but by what the Spirit of the Lord says to us.  Peter did not understand everything and neither do I; but I know that Peter and I have this much right,  we know that Jesus was who He claimed and claims to be and we trust that our Father will grow that faith that we have by teaching us through the validity of the Holy Spirit within.

I know that the more I seek Him, the more I find Him and the more I find Him the more I love Him….  He reveals Himself to me each day in the little things as well as the big things and I believe Him and in Him.  

Why don’t you pray and seek first the kingdom and see what He does in your life……   ????????????


Hello World…Have A Heart….

Dear one, do you realize that love is a verb? It’s true. Out of God’s great love for you He redeemed you.  And through your kindness and compassion to others, you extend God’s love and glorify Him.  When you cook a hot meal, or visit the sick in the hospital, donating clothing to the needed, providing transportation for those who have none…..these small acts of mercy do not depend on great amounts of wealth or even time.  All that is needed is a compassionate, responsive heart, and eyes to see the need of all around you.

If you ask God,  He  will gladly transform your heart to be like His, filled with compassion—-a heart that seeks and loves.  When you show love and kindness to others you are showering God with love and kindness as well….

Have a heart like His….Ask Him to open your eyes to the needs around you and to open your heart to love and serve others…..
