I pray everyday the Kingdom of our Lord is closer.

As I have heard and read. No one knows the date or time. “I do know one thing that it is 2000 years closer than it was before”, (John MacArthur). I keep praying, yes this seems to be more true everyday. I am longing for the day, as all believers do. I get down and want to go now. I know I can’t say, although I do think, please Lord, take me now. I have to do his will not mine. I am as he instructs me.

I have friends, some people considered the bottom of the barrel. It hurts me. That others can’t see, we are all the bottom of the barrel, filthy rags. I do not judge them. I have made many (mistakes) sins and any sin, only one can send you to Sheol, if you do not repent. Jesus welcomed and ate with harlots, tax collectors, adulterers, people not any good in the eyes of the law and others. They are forgiven because they repented. So is there any difference in my friends, no, I love them, because he loves them. You can’t say my brethren are at the top of the Lord’s selection, there are not any. I follow his lead and love my brothers no matter. I know because I am a sinner who only received mercy because, he gave me mercy. People go to a Church Of  The Word, the Bible, for this reason we are all sinners. The difference in a Church of The Word is no man here on earth can forgive your sins and we study the Word, The Lord is the head of our churches… The Bible has the answers to all life’s questions. Only if The Lord lets you see and hear. You only have one mediator before God. That is his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. If you are not willing to give up your life fully to him and do what the Holy Spirit directs. You may want to reassess your commitment. What does pick up you cross and follow me mean? It doesn’t mean holding back sins you still want to do. It means total access to me, knowing his work in me is under his control. That all things are possible with God, with man nothing is possible. He can change anything in us no matter.  To me it means, giving up myself completely to his use and glorification, to wherever and to whomever I am lead. He will protect me. Or, if it’s my time to go, I go gladly and willingly. Thanking him for letting me out of here into eternity. This earth at this time is under the rule of the spirit of  the evil one, the man of perdition, the man of sin, he is a liar and the father of it. Thank you Lord for giving me eyes that see, and ears that hear and a new heart and new life.

I was hurt and nevertheless, love. I was told that I don’t know my brother. That I sound like a broken record, and don’t know what I am talking about. The Lord knows what he is talking about, not me. I belong to him. I am no longer myself but, the personality he is making me. I try not to even think of myself anymore. Because thinking of myself means I am not following the Lord. I have nothing in it. It is all to His Glory. I am a vessel he chose and not for destruction.

Amen Lord Jesus

True Way into The Kingdom

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven. many will say to Me in that day, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Matthew 7:21-23

Therefore whoever confesses me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies me before men, I will also deny before my father in heaven. Matthew 10:32-33

Invitation to Come to Jesus

Jesus said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes. Even so Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight. All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. Come  to  Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden light.”

Jesus characterizes the Pharisees Matthew 1:12

Jesus condemns the religious leaders Matthew 23:13-37

So why do we think the religious leaders of today are any different? Do not call anyone on earth your father; One is your Father who is in heaven. One is your Teacher, The Christ.  Matthew 23:9-10

God Cannot Lie Titus 1:3

Sanctify them by Your Truth John 17:17-19

A day of Blessings Flowed

I went to breakfast at our church this morning. It is a true place of fellowship in the worship of and in Christ. I always feel the Lord’s presence. Today the sermon was on the last woman in Jesus’s lineage, Bathsheba, Then we know Mary, his mother of course whose husband was Joseph. The lineage is in Matthew 1:6. Then you read where David the King, begot Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah. I had not completely understood this until today. The text of the relationship is in 2 Samuel 11 & 12. The scripture tells of King David’s sin towards Bathsheba, against God and in the planned death of her husband Uriah, to cover up what he had done. The prophet Nathan presents to David a description of what he had done in a different way, from the Lord God to convict him of his sin. What Pastor presented was truth besides that is that Bathsheba was defiled. Like many women today, who remain silent of what has happened to them. It stays inside always and is a hurt that can stay and fester without forgiveness. Yes, it is a sin that was done to her. David did repent and was forgiven by the Lord and her. She grew to be very important to God the Father, because she bore King Solomon to carry on the lineage to our Lord Jesus Christ. The lineage from Mary’s side is in Luke:23-38.

Lord uses all of us to his sovereign purpose. Nothing does not happen that he already hasn’t predestined before the world was even created. He says who is elected to the heavenly kingdom eternally and who is not. Without that election we go on through our days and years here (to God one day is like a thousand years, 2 Peter 3:8) like we are running a race to nowhere. Yet we think to ourselves we are going  somewhere. Well there are only two places to go. I am going to heaven. Am I sure? Yes and you can be too. If you feel no presence everyday of the Lord. A personal relationship where you talk, walk and pray with him, then it’s time to take a long look. If you are not loving others like he loves us. Then take another look. If you are not out doing for others what he did for us, than take another look. When he died for us and you do not understand what that means, it’s time to take another look. He came to save the sheep that his Father (God) has given him. We were already known before we were even in our mother’s womb, before the world was created.

No one can come to the Father unless he draws them. All that the Father gives Me, will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him that sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing but should raise it up at the last day. John 6:37-40. In the beginning  was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He (Jesus) was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:1-5.  And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14.

Now someone tell me prayers do not get answered. I cried in church very hard today. Pastor said we all know someone who has been hurt like Bathsheba. We may be like Bathsheba in how she was hurt. We can’t forget it, we can forgive and God can use those hurts to his glory in us. I came home today got on the computer and an instant message popped up. It was my daughter that I have not had contact with in almost a year. I prayed, I hoped, I believed and will always.

He gave his life so that we could be forgiven. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it for a man to gain the whole world and loses his own soul? Or what will a man exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:25-26. 

Give your life when he calls you. I mean if he calls you and you are his you will answer yes. Because his sheep know his voice and they know his. John 10:14-16.

Thank you Lord Jesus for Prayers Answered.

God says Have Hope, Pray and Believe.

I have been again sending scriptures to my husband. He finally responded angrily saying I was accusing him of being satan. All is for him to have a chance at salvation. Go forth and preach to all nations. I believe that includes my husband. The more someone hears the word. The more possible they could be elect and hear. Elijah said “I alone am left; they seek to take my life.” The Lord said; Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.” 1 Kings 9:9-18.  We have to do that too. We never know when something said might be at the right moment. Or we planted something and someone else reaps it brought from God. God hates divorce. He knows I don’t want that. Why would I? I don’t want anyone else in my life. It is never going to happen. If I can’t have my husband back, as a Christian. Then I will serve the Lord on my own. I pray everyday that hope and prayer will come true. I believe the Lord will do it. I have asked not for myself so much but for my husband and my daughter and stepson, all family and others there in Lebanon, my family here, other Christians, for other unbelievers everywhere.

There is nothing that we cannot ask in prayer. The Lord will do what he sees fit. I love you Lord Jesus, God, My Father, My Savior, The I AM, The Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, Amen

The Lord gave Love through me and I received Love.

I went yesterday for the first time in my new opportunity (my special gift) from the Lord. While I was there I felt so much love. I thought about it the whole day. I woke up today and realized again that Love is the Greatest Gift of All. I realized it was true and gave praise to The Lord. He gave me that Gift of Love for All. Then I thought many don’t have this Amazing Gift. Thank you Lord for choosing me as one of your sheep to share it… Amen, Lord Jesus in your name I Pray always.

1 Corinthians 13:1-13

Update To: I visited a friend today. I went back today.

Update I went today to see my friend. I had downloaded all the new Testament to his MP3 player. He went back to work today. I told him the Lord is proud of him. I told him that when he has his meeting tomorrow to not be disappointed if it doesn’t turn out the way he wants. We can’t expect things to happen right away. We have work towards those goals slowly. I believe that will be what happens for him. He wanted me to attend but, I said no because I don’t think he is making a good decision. I understand as a man he feels like he is not all he wants to be. His life has been up and down as for all of us. The one we can count on the I Am, Jesus Christ, The Lord God Almighty, The Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and the End, Who was, Who is, and Will Be is always there for us. What else matters? Can you take things with you when you leave this world? Can you get to Heaven on your own? No you cannot. He is the only way. The Father draws who he chooses to Jesus. No one can come except if the Father calls him. If you are not willing to give your life to Jesus, you will lose it anyway. You can go to Heaven and know you are in advance. If you don’t know that, then you are of the worldly system belonging to the man of sin, the worldly father. Read the Gospel of John 8:1-59. It’s very descriptive between Jesus, and the father of lies. Which Father do you feel drawn to. Get down on your knees and pray for the True One, The I am He.

The Jews of Jesus time were so worried about keeping their laws and rituals. They wanted to kill him because he did miracles on the Sabbath and broke the Laws. They wanted to trick him with  the stoning of the woman for adultery. They knew by scripture Leviticus 20:10-16. That all adulterers deserved death, not just the woman. Oh, but they thought they could trick the Lord when he knows us, everyone’s heart completely. You can’t fool him. Then Jesus said you without sin cast the first stone. They couldn’t because they were not, and we are not without sin, no one is, not one. Romans 3:9-18. Through one man sin came into the world and one man, Jesus Christ, by the gift of God, the Gift of Grace. Romans 5:12-17. God in the flesh came to die for us and take away the sins of those the Father predestined before the world was created. Romans 8-28-39

Do you know who your Father is? I Do,  Amen Hallelujah

I visited a friend today who is down…

I have been friends with him awhile. He wants to live on his own. I keep telling him if the Lord wants you to that will granted. He has a meeting on Wednesday. He is in a wonderful group home. He has COPD and other things like depression. I keep telling him you are not a prisoner. He won’t give it to the Lord and realize his needs are being met in every way everyday. It is not a prison to have others capable of looking after your needs. He can even work if he wants. He said he feels like he is failing to witness as much as he wants to. He wants to be a man and take care of himself. I told him God knows his situation and when those times come to witness you do it.  Being out on his own would be so lonely. I just can’t get what he is thinking. I just know in my heart it is not what God will grant him. I told him to not be angry if the answer is no. Just to keep working towards that goal at a later date and see what happens. Keep studying his Bible going to church and working…Trust the Lord completely. Give it all to him. 

My situation is not much different. I live with my parents. At fifty-five I have to answer to their rules. I use their car. I stay in my room most of the time to Worship the Lord. I love my parents and pray for them daily. They are just unaware of what the world system is coming to. I take my chances to witness always but mostly it falls on blinded eyes and deaf ears. This does not mean I won’t keep trying. I want to have a part-time job. I have fulfilled one of God’s directions in my life. I am a certified Hospice Volunteer. Everything comes to those who follow the Lord’s commands and it’s not all at once. I have issues as everyone else but, by following the Word, going to my church and fellowship with other Christians, I am stronger in the Lord. I would not want it any other way and the Lord doesn’t either. I thank and worship him everyday I am here, to be given mercy in his sight. To have been chosen from the beginning for his own Glory. Is there anything else I need, no not really. I just wait for the day he returns for all of us elect Christians. I pray my prayers for others, and my family estrangement in Lebanon. I heard a message yesterday from our Pastor. He said when you pray and hope consider it completed. He said for us all to stop saying yes but. All is possible with the Lord. Nothing with man himself. So I don’t belong here in this world. My world in after this one. The Lord’s world with no fear, no pain and no tears. God also said all of these things we have lived through will no longer be remembered. I can L I V E with that E T E R N A L L Y,  Amen, Hallelujah.

What I lived before becoming to the Lord’s is no comparison. I have no where else to go and wouldn’t want to.
