Without Spot….hello world

How do you see yourself each day when you get up and look in the mirror? Do you see  someone who is laden with temptations of your old life? Some one who is  burdened with the battle of the bulge, some one who gets angry when people act dumb and stupid in your presence and what you really want to do is haul off and slap the stupid out of them?

Guess what?  God knows exactly how you feel, but He does not want you to act upon your impulses. He wants you to act like His Son Jesus and respond with His will and Word on the subject.

If you do fall off the wagon and hit the floor with a scream, Father will actually pick you up, dust you off and put  you back in the wagon along the path He has set for your life.  All He ask, is that you ask Him to forgive you and actually mean it.  Do you know that when He looks at you, He does not see you. He sees Jesus. Remember that time you said, “Father, forgive me of my sin.”  He took you for your word and did that. He let you exchange your sin for Christ’s One righteousness and you became the One He sees when He looks at you.  It is no longer you but Christ payment for your sin that He sees.

You are without spot before the Father if Christ has taken your sin and you have received His righteousness.  Simple exchange.

Does that make me free to sin?  Heaven forbid!  It makes Father free to keep you in the center of His will even though you don’t deserve to be kept. Sin should have no place in your life because He has given you power over sin and you don’t have to sin. 

Sin is now a choice. If you willfully sin after Christ has taken your sin, you have no more sacrifice for sin and it falls squarely on your shoulders.  Remember that ole saying, “what goes around, comes around.”  

Be careful to walk in righteousness, trust God for cleansing daily and seek first the kingdom… You don’t want to be caught  in the ‘comes around.’


Bless not Curse….hello world

Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:  Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases…….Psalms 103:1-3

In a world that is cursing the Lord, cursing their family members, cursing their neighbors, cursing their children, cursing each other and cursing perfect strangers……how long do you think this can go on before the End comes?

The fool has said in his heart, there is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity, there  is none that does good.  God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. Every one of them is gone back;  they are altogether become filthy; there is none that does good, no not one.   Psalms 53: 1-4

You reap what you sow.  It is a law of nature and it is true of the good and evil.  So if you continue to curse, you will reap cursing…..if you bless another, you will reap blessing….

The meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace; the wicked plots against the just, and gnashed upon him with his teeth.              The Lord shall laugh at him, for he sees his day is coming…Ps 37: 11-13

Why don’t we wait patiently upon the Lord???.   You know that He will bring us up out of a horrible  pit and a miry clay and set our feet upon a ROCK and establish our goings?  He will put a new song in our mouth, even praise unto our God, and many will see it and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.

Rejoice Children, Obedience brings rich blessing.  Read My Word, listen with the ears of Spirit… because My Word is full of power, it will give you power to hear it and to keep it and in the keeping it, you will be blessed.

Faith Rest In God..Hello World

There remains therefore a rest to the people of God   Heb. 4:9

 Our daily prayer to God should be “Thank you God for your wonderful Word which teaches me how to enter into your wonderful rest and thank you for your spiritual rest that you promised to your children if they will love you, obey you and believe your Word.”  and then DO IT.

 Many times we read His Word and get up and go away and forget what we just read.  We ignore the promises He gives us in His Word and ignore the wisdom and faith growth He wants to bestow on us as we get busy in the ways of world…..we have shopping of groceries, clothing for the kids, clothing for ourselves, appointments, work schedules, family dinners to cook, houses to clean and so on and so on.  We totally ignore the invitation from Jesus to come to Him when we are heavy laden, when we are weary and tired of the ‘daily dump’ that keeps on keeping on, and take on His yoke and learn of Him. In our Father, we can rest our soul in Jesus for His burden is light and His yoke is easy. 

 We need to take our worries and fears and anything that disturbs our peace to the Lord asking Him in prayer and giving thanks knowing that He will take these from us and give us His peace and rest.  We can have His peace and His rest by entering into His faith as He keeps our heart and mind stayed upon Him.  Cast all of your care upon Him because He cares for you.

 Father will give you joy of the Lord to be your strength and you can over come anything as you rest in the Holy Spirit.  Have you ever wondered why the Spirit is called ‘Holy’?   Consider this:   God is Spirit, Jesus is God manifest in  the flesh…..God is Holy, Jesus is Holy and He, giving you His Spirit, makes you Holy.  Resting in the Holy Spirit relieves you of all worries, fears and anything that disturbs flesh.

 Faith rest in God.  Try resting daily and see what happen in your life.

 God bless you and may He give His angels charge over you daily!
Love, J

Hello World…Believing Unbeliever

I was reading a wonderful post on believers living up to and doing what they believe God’s Word says. I was also having a conversation with a dear to my heart person in my life who asked me this question; “Why do you use the phrase, ‘believing unbeliever’?

My answer was:   There are so many people in this world who say they believe, but they don’t DO what they say they believe.  They use their will against God’s will and do their will and live by what they ‘will’  to happen in their lives and leave God completely out of the picture even though they say, “Oh, yea! I believe the bible.  I believe in God. I believe in tithing.  I believe you should do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”  But when the trial comes, they balk and start hollering all this gibberish about, “Yea, I know what the bible says, BUT…..   I know what I should do about tithing, BUT…….     I believe in God, BUT …….. I know I should treat him/her/them better, BUT……..

A relative of mine who goes to Church every Sunday morning….and  Wednesday night to eat because the meal is only $2.00, never reads the bible, ‘can’t understand what it say’ is the excuse, told me she didn’t care what the bible says about living with a man she is not married to and does not intend to marry – he is just a convenience to have someone to go eat with, dance with, sit beside her in church so ‘she isn’t there by herself’.  I saw her get angry at a woman and cuss her out over a slight toward her while she was shopping, and she gives a dollar in the plate every Sunday morning…ooopps, one Sunday she gave 2.00.  .  .  .  and she has millions in the bank.   This is the picture of a believing unbeliever.  I am not judging her, there are millions of people just like her and they all think they are believers…..Wake up people!  You are just like satan who fell from heaven because of his I WILL HAVE IT MY WAY!

God does not save you to have it your way.  Only Burger King allows that.  God saves you so you can come back into relationship with Him and have abundant life that will keep you centered in God’s Will.  You repent and give your will to God and He gives you eternal life. More than a fair trade.  You repent and confess you are a sinner, He gives you eternal life later and abundant life now.  What do you have to give up?  Suffering, sin, selfishness to name a few things.   I actually didn’t give up anything.  God made me so happy, I just turned my life over to Him and told Him, What ever you want from me,  You show/tell me what you want me to do, You help me do it and I  will gladly DO  it.  He said “read MY WORD and I will guide you!” Every morning He gives me a fresh start. He tells me to come and drink from the well of belief and faith. He told me that even when I do wrong, He still here for me….Just come and talk to Him..He wants me to tell Him everything that is on my heart.  (He already knows it anyway).   So if I just talk it out with Him, we can work it out together  and deal with whatever takes place.

When I sin or do something wrong, it bothers me and when I tell Him all about it and confess it, He makes me feel better and I know He understands and will help me not to go in that path again.  When I confess and repent, I am forgiven and it is forgotten. He does not hold it against me. He teaches me what to do next time so I don’t do it again.  He heals my broken heart, He heals my mind and my emotions and He makes me clean. I like clean better than dirty.  I like the fresh start. In the beginning it wasn’t as easy as it is now, but the older I get and the more I trust Him – the easier it gets.    Worship is exciting, reading the Word is exciting, praying is exciting and sometimes I am overwhelmed by His mercy and grace.  I am also very thankful for His ever forgiving heart toward this Child.

One day I was just worshiping Him and suddenly I felt this loving  tug on my heart and I heard Him say, “My sweet adorable cheerleader. I love the way you worship Me in truth and Spirit.”…… and I began to shout my love to Him.  I felt wave after wave of the most loving feelings I think I have ever known.  When He touches you, you know it.  Rejoice and be glad!

Hello World… Conquerors,

My Beloved friend has passed through the fire and come out as gold in the hand of the Lord. 

Prayers and petitions unto the Lord have been answered and every one can praise the Lord for what He is doing and for the love He has bestowed upon His Children.  When we go through trials, our Father sends the Comforter in human flesh to put arms around the child in need at that moment. He sends words of comfort in human flesh that will speak the Word  in love and see you through all aspects of the trails, who will walk with you, pray with you, fight the good fight with you.  Love never fails.

Our Lord says to us:

       Child, when the Son arises, the darkness will flee.  Darkness can not stand in the Presence of the Son Light.  Fear that comes to take control of you will flee at the Presence of the Light.  Fear is the opposite of FAITH. . . . . .  and when faith is exercised in the face of fear, fear will become a smoke that will dissipate and flee from you.   The blood of Jesus will make you more than a conqueror and the message that comes from the Word of God will continue the work of growing your faith.  Instead of sinking sand, you will stand on the Rock and the power of the Holy Spirit will rise to conqueror.   When fear plagues you, kill that plague with the Word, stand on the Word and speak the Word and you will be equipped to over come all fears by the Spirit.   I will give you spirit-power to see past the fear and understand the Word that will dispel the darkness and bring brilliant LIGHT into your spirit and soul.  Don’t worry, be happy for the Good Shepherd,   I AM  always as near as a whispered prayer.

Ex 3:14

Hello World…Worship is

A friend of mine is going through a very trying time and the test is on.   As I sat watching the situation unfold, I prayed that the Lord would show us all the end from the beginning, but He has decided that He wants us to grow in grace as we watch the glory of God unfold.

In John 4:24, the Word says:    God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship  Him in spirit and in truth.

I looked up three words  in the American Heritage Dictionary and it said: 

Worship: The reverent love and allegiance accorded a deity. Ardent, humble, devotion. A set of ceremonies, prayers or other religious forms by which this love is expressed.

Spirit:     The Holy Ghost. God.

Truth:    Conformity to knowledge, fact, actuality or logic. Fidelity to an original or standard. Reality, actuality. A statement proven to be or accepted as true. Sincerity, integrity, honesty.

Everything we go through must be tested against the Truth of God’s Word.  If God’s Word is truth, and I believe it is; then whatever He says, we can count on happening.  If we believe what He says, we have the assurance that He being God and He created everything, then the truth of the matter is:  He said: By His stripes, I am healed therefore I am.   He said:  All things are possible, therefore,  they are possible.   He said:  I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.  I can.   We are more than conquerors, then we are.  No matter what man says, no matter what man does, no matter what is going on around us:  God has the final word.  It is our responsibility to trust and believe Him.

Worship is reverent belief and allegiance accorded to God by ardent, humble devotion settled by prayer expressed in love.

This is our daily bread…….

Hello World….. Safe and Sure

Are you safe?     Are you sure??    What makes you think that you are safe?   Give me an example of how you can prove you are safe?

I am safe because God is my refuge and I am sure because He told me, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” and He never has.  I don’t just think, I believe what He says in His Word so therefore my example to prove that I am safe is standing before you.  ME.  I am your example.  Jesus in me and I am in Him. God in Jesus, Jesus in God.

He said to me:

        My Child,  In this world you shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer, “I HAVE OVERCOME” and you are in Me so you also have overcome.  I know that when storms come into your life, literal storms or physical storms; those things that sweep into your life unexpectedly; those things that are ment to knock you down and out, You can be confident that YOU  shall stand.  I AM in you and you are in me. We are One and since I have overcome, you are an overcomer!!

He knows how I feel, He knows the ways of the world are destructive to humans, but He has made a WAY to escape.   If you wonder why He allows destructive forces to come into our lives to bring upheaval, then stop and read the rest of this.

He allows storms so that we can know  and  experience His presence around us and in us. When waves of doubt wash over us, when bills and sickness try to over take us, when the going gets rougher than ever and we are frightened out of our wits:  We have His sure Word that tells us to ‘Stand fast and stay in His protection’. Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the kingdom of heaven, blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.  Blessed are the meek; for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled.  Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.  Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God. 

And it happened when  Elizabeth  heard the greeting of Mary,  the baby leaped in her womb  and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost. …and she spake out with a loud voice and said, Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.

And his father Zacharias was filled with the HOLY Ghost and prophesied, saying:  Blessed be the Lord God of Israel: for He has visited and redeemed His people, and has raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David………

Being filled with the HOLY Spirit means you will see God because you are protected and blessed of the LORD.      Be OVERSHADOWED…..look it up and you will see God.

It is your choice to choose Whom you will serve…whom you serve will determine your life…………..

Hello World… People need people

Do people need you?

Do they need you to be there for them in the good times and the bad times?  Are  you able to walk with them on their journey down the paths of rejoicing and sadness?   Can you identify with the good and the bad in people’s’ lives or do you only identify with the good?    Can you walk in darkness with someone and not stumble?   Can you pray without ceasing?   Can you mourn with those who have lost loved ones?   Can you help the needy when their money runs out?   Can you be a friend to the unfriendly ones who hurt your feelings over and over and over?  Can you comfort someone who needs a comforting Word?  Can you do this and keep your head held high?  Can you be in the presence of evil and not fall?

You can if you know the Savior and are obedient to His every Word!   His Word and love never ends and never grows weary.  He will give you the strength, energy, resources, gladness, wisdom, light, friendship, and ability to overcome all things.

People need people who know the Lord.

Hello World….Laughter is Medicine

How do you live with excruciating pain?   How do you live with depression, obsession, possession?   How do you live with someone who will not  leave you alone, who keeps calling and asking for you to do what they want instead of letting you live the life God has called you too?  How do you keep going when your daily bread is stale and your pain is beyond help by human hands?

My Father said;    Trust in Me.  Do as I say each moment and all indeed shall be well.  Follow out My commands, Let Me be in divine control, and give Me unquestioning obedience—- these are the only conditions of supply being ample for your needs and those of others. Whatever I set before you, I will supply strength to go through.  The commands are Mine and the supply is Mine  and I give you strength to endure, the power to over come but your part is to be My disciple and adapt to the call on your life.

My Child, have no fear!  Because you are My Child, you are already the winner so endure and go forth with love, joy and laughter. Radiant joy will bring the changes you desire as you obey and pray.

Lord, give me strength to endure, the power to overcome and the ability to laugh in spite of what is going on around me and in me……

Hello World….Dazzling Glory

Arise, shine, for thy Light is come, and  the Glory of the Lord is risen upon thee…. Isa.   60:1

The glory of the Lord is the Beauty of His Character. It is risen upon you when you realize it,  even though on earth you can do so only in part.  The Beauty of the Purity and Love of God is too dazzling for mortals to see in full.

The glory of the Lord is also risen upon you when you reflect that Glory in your lives, when in LOVE, Patience, Service, Purity, whatever it may be, you reveal to the world a something of the Father, an assurance that you have been with ME, your Lord and Saviour.

The dazzling glory of the Lord in our lives is unconditional love that we show and have for those that God places in our lives.  Loving God means loving people  and loving yourself and loving your enemies.  Glory will abound when we give our lives fully to the word and work of the Lord as He speaks to us. 

He is coming Soon…..Look up….Maranatha!
