Loving God

bible_worship1It is my greatest desire in life to inspire you to really love with all your heart and have a complete devotion to God.  Such a desire in us that we would all fall in love with Him and Jesus and the Holy Spirit, as the most precious of all the ones we love and want to please.  That we would be true daughters and sons and act like it, not only for our sake, but also in order to make Them happy, and bring Them pleasure, and Continue reading

Yielding Our Rights

Yielding to God

Anger is opposite of meekness.  We want meekness to be a predominant characteristic in our nature, rather than anger.  The Bible puts great importance on being meek.  The Bible states, that the meek will have good judgment because, “The meek will He guide in judgment: the meek he will teach his ways” (Ps 25:9).  “The meek will inherit the earth” (Ps 37:11).  The meek will respond to the gospel, “He came to preach good tiding to the meek” (Isaiah 61:1).  The meek will have special joy: “The meek shall increase their joy” (Isaiah 29:19).  The meek will understand Continue reading

Adding to Our Faith: Virtue

awesome-power-of-faith2_t 2 Peter 1:5-11: Expounds upon the importance of adding to your faith certain attributes that we should develop in order to become overcoming Christians.  The Bible says, the purpose of adding these attributes is so that we will not be useless, unfruitful, blind, short-sighted, and fall back into former sins.  We need these virtues added to our faith in order to make our calling and election sure, never stumbling.

This article describes virtue in some detail so that we may know that we have it operating in our own lives.  We are to add these certain qualities in 2 Peter 1:5-11 diligently; which Continue reading

Important: Word from the Lord – Received 3/6/14

I have been praying for some time that I would learn to hear the Lord’s voice and know that it was Him who was actually speaking to me, and not something I made up, or the Enemy telling me words that were not from the Lord. I wanted to be sure and knew it was the Lord speaking so that I could become more obedient to Him, and have intimacy and a more personal relationship with Him.

I know that many in the Body of Christ are really going through very hard trials right now, and it seems to be in every home.  I also know that a lot of people have been feeling that something is about to happen but don’t know exactly what, but there just seems to be a knowing inside of us telling us that something is about to happen.  It is uncanny that a lot of movies and t.v. shows all seem to have a theme of end time type of things as their main plot.

Well, last night I was awakened about 2:00 a.m. and I heard the Lord telling me in my mind the following:  (remember it says in the Bible “My sheep hear My voice”).  He told me that we are going to be in a very very hard time and that it was coming very soon.  It would be something that would affect the whole world, not just America.  He told me that He is the One who is bringing this judgment and not Satan.  He said that we had to really press in and seek Him with all our hearts NOW, or we would not be able to be prepared for what we will soon have to face.  That we ourselves need to learn to hear His voice and know that voice, and that we will not be able to endure the time that is coming in our own strength, but must be totally dependent upon His strength to see us through.  He said that we would have to give up our present pleasures in order to seek Him, for one example, our t.v. time in the evening.  I personally work very hard all day long, and thoroughly look forward to watching favorite t.v. shows after dinner and just relaxing, but now I would have to give up some of that time before going to bed, so that I could use this time instead to go into my prayer closet and draw close to Him.  Closer than we have ever been before, closer than we have ever pressed in before.  Repenting of any known sins in our lives, crying out to be cleansed and made more holy, washed by the washing of the Word (reading the Bible), seeking to walk in obedience to that Word by the help of the Holy Spirit, seeking know His presence and what His will is, and praying for whatever He tells us to pray for, and just drawing close to Him.

Then He also told me that I was to put this message on my website & facebook so that others might be prepared for the days ahead as well.  So here I am, typing this to you and to those who will “hear His voice” telling us all to get ready and to see the big picture, for our very lives are about to change radically in the near future, and we must become prepared now. (Remember the 10 foolish virgins and the 10 wise virgins in the Bible.  Those who had been prepared and had their lamps trimmed with oil got to go in with the bridegroom, but those who did not have their lamps trimmed and had not prepared their lamps with oil did not get to enter in.  WOW!  Let’s get ready dear sisters and brothers.  It’s not too late yet for us.

Thought for the Day: Singing Brings Strength to Us

We wonder why it says so much in the Word about singing, making melody in our hearts, rejoicing, praising.  Well I thought about this and thought one reason is because it brings us the ability to be strong.  Songs like Onward Christian Soldiers, when you hear it, it revives ones soul to stand up, and not be down trodden or fearful, but instead it inspires us to be brave and strengths us to fight the good fight of faith and be courageous.  When my son died at age 41, and when I was diagnosed with Cirrhosis of the liver, I had a peace in the midst of these trials.  I remember walking down the hall and singing two verses from two songs.  One has the words,  “I don’t know about tomorrow, I don’t seem to understand, but I know who holds my future and I know who holds my hand.”  The second song went like this, “Whatever my lot thou has taught me to say, it is well, it is well with my soul.”  We each have our ” lots” to have to go through, each one different from one another, but nevertheless painful.  However, I find that singing songs like these and others songs lifts my spirit and soul up to heaven, and no matter what I have to face, I can go through it, because I DO know that the Lord is with me. When I was diagnosed with Cirrhosis, I asked the Lord saying, “Lord, am I going to die?”  He didn’t say yes or no, but I heard in my mind Him to say, “I will hold your hand to the very end”.  What more could I ask for? If Jesus is with us, holding our hand through it all, what more could we ask for?
