My son believes God created cavemen.

We were having this discussion the other night. I told him only science promotes that there were cavemen. As we read in the bible God created all creatures after their own kind. He created man, the only human in His likeness and with a rib from Adam made Eve, woman.

All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of birds. (1 Corinthians 15:39)

So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. (Genesis 1:21)

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind”; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on earth according to its kind. And God saw it was good. (Genesis 1:24-25)

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female. (Genesis 1:26-27), (Genesis 2:7-25)

Men did dwell in caves if you search caves in the bible, Elijah flees from Jezebel wanting to kill him, fed by angels.(1 Kings 19:1-8)

Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave in the field of Machpeliah in the land of Canaan. (Genesis 23:19)

Abraham was buried there when he died. (Genesis  25:7-10)

David hid in a cave from King Saul who wanted to kill him and David spared him. (1 Samuel 24) there are many other mentions of caves in the bible.

I found no mention of God creating cavemen. He said as above, “Let Us make man in Our Own image, according to Our likeness.”

None of these animals or man could reproduce with any other kind.  That is why He said, “Be fruitful and multiply,” and more. (Genesis 1-2)

I believe God, what about you?

Reminiscing, times with my daughter.

I have to tell this story. My daughter and I started traveling to Lebanon when she was thirteen months old. The first time we went as a family. All families know how hard it is initially to get a child used to traveling. She looked under the seat and saw feet but, became scared something else was under there. One time we had quite a layover and she was sleeping when boarding time came. In front of everyone, because she did not want to wake up, she threw a fit on the floor. I had lots to carry and she could walk then but, wouldn’t. A nice lady helped me with one of the bags, if I remember right. My daughter had her own bag that said, world traveler. Don’t get one, you end up trying to pull both and carry the kid and everything else. Another time we traveled through the Netherlands. Layovers there are eight to ten hours. She was playing in the kiddie area and some girl put the tail of her stuffed cat in her mouth. She was so upset. She always had this thing about kids playing with her toys and she would say, “Mom they’re going to drool on them.” She would watch them like a hawk and sure enough it would happen. We are talking when she was five or so and younger kids from rented flats in my in-laws building would visit or cousins. She was an only child until seven when her step-brother came to live with us. So she was spoiled. I admit it.

When my daughter was four years old, she went to her first summer camp in Lebanon. She was all excited when we visited and stayed the rest of the day. Her dad came later for a month’s vacation. Well, when he got there she started crying at the gate when we left her. She eventually got okay with it again. It was the first time she was away from us for a long period of time. She and I would travel every year in May, a month or so before my husband’s July vacation. We would return before school started. We went every single summer for ten years, before moving there in 2008, and she went to camp. They had all types of activities and she never said once I don’t want to go. The older she got the more fun she had.

Well, now my daughter is sixteen and she is a monitor of five to seven year-olds. I thank God for all the times we had together. I remember them with such joy. I think it is just wonderful that she is doing this and loving it. I am counting on God for his will in her life now. Only God converts the human soul. We are planters of seed (His Word), another waters (more of His Word). And God gives the increase (saves). (1 Corinthians 3:5-23)

The Lord, Jesus Christ is my shepherd. Who is yours?

A guilty, guilty sinner, but a new creature in Christ Jesus!

I said before I lived a depraved life, as all sinners have. Jesus says that to those who have many sins, much is forgiven, because we love much.

Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house (of  Matthew the tax collector), whom he called to be an apostle; (Matthew 9:9) that behold, many tax collectors and sinners sat down with Him and His disciples. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, “Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”

When Jesus heard that, He said to them,” Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice.’ For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.” Matthew 9:10-13)

Likewise In (Luke 7:36-39)

Then one of the Pharisees asked Him to eat with him. And He went to the Pharisee’s house, and sat down to eat. And behold, a woman of the city who was a sinner, when she knew Jesus sat at the table in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster flask of fragrant oil, and stood at His feet behind Him weeping; and she began to wash His feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head; and she kissed His feet and anointed them with the fragrant oil. Now when the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he spoke to himself saying, “This Man, if  He were a Prophet, would know who and what manner of woman this is touching Him, for she is a sinner.”

Parable of the Two Debtors

And Jesus answered and said to him, “Simon I have something to say to you.”
So he said; “Teacher say it.”
“There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. And when they had nothing with which to repay, he freely forgave them both. Tell Me, therefore, which of them will love him more?”
Simon answered and said, “I suppose the one whom he forgave more.”
And He said to him, “You rightly judged.” Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has washed My feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair on her head. You gave me no kiss, but this woman has not ceased to kiss My feet since the time I came in. You did not anoint My head with oil, but this woman has anointed My feet with fragrant oil. Therefore, I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”

Then He said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”
And those who sat at the table with Him began to say to themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?”
Then He said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you. Go in peace.” (Luke 7-40-50)

My church does not have anyone like me in it. I am sure that no one has sinned to the degree of me. I feel like I go to confession every time I fill out an application for a job. I felt like it when I got into children’s ministries. I know it is required but, I still feel shamed. I did not go to church today. I just feel now that too much has been revealed about my past life. I felt that with God, and Jesus being my only mediator was enough. I felt I was in confession again, only the priest didn’t know who I was. Of, course their confession system now is one big absolution by the bishops, priests, etc. I know it is all part of checking someone’s past and it is right to do so. They have our SS#’s that should be enough. I have many aliases, so that I feel ashamed of and many other sins.

I have always felt deep shame from my past. I think being ill is hogwash because without the Lord, we sin, sin, sin. Even now a sinner I am. I feel delusional yet again. When I do, somehow, I am right on with my perception. Pastor said it is confidential, but he knows and the person running the check knows. I laid my sins at the cross with Jesus. They are part of my testimony, so be it. If someone judges me, so be it. I know Jesus’ blood covered them all. Yet we still all doubt.

Amen! Lord Jesus you know every man’s heart, mind and soul.

All things work together for good to those who Love God!!!

Even in our little old town there is destruction. We had our finale of our vacation bible school in our church without electricity. The word of Lord was unquenchable. The church was still full with some children and families unable to be there. It was very exciting seeing all these children and what they took home to remember forever. We had several come to salvation. They strove to learn bible verses. Some accomplished bigger studying. The New Testament books in order backwards and forward. They could say all the names of the brothers of Joseph. Some were even missionaries bringing other children. One brought four friends and was missionary of 2013 excelling the last day over two others that brought three each, amazing.

Joseph was the brother that Jacob showed the most love to. The other ten step-brothers, wanted to kill him but, instead sold into him into slavery. His other brother was Benjamin who was three at the time of Joseph’s supposed death. Joseph became second over Pharaoh in his kingdom in Egypt. He was the Lord’s and the Lord was with him, to prosper him according to His purpose. Joseph’s whole family was eventually brought to Egypt and saved from the seven-year plague. Joseph told his brothers what they meant for evil the Lord used for good. You can read Joseph’s story in (Genesis 37:1-36; Genesis chapters: 39-50), a very amazing true story, as all the bible is God’s perfect word written down by men inspired by Him.

The bible verse was (Romans 8:28). The children learned it over the week and what it meant for their lives. Because God has a purpose for all of our lives. The verse reads: (All things work together for good to those who love God, who are the called according to His purpose). He compared the evils done to Joseph to the similar and worse things that happened to Jesus. Because what the devil and his children, the High Priest, Pharisees and Sadducees, Pilate, Herod and sinners meant for evil the Lord God, used for good. His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, took all of our sins upon Him to save His chosen according to His purpose.

Are you one of His chosen?

I felt a bit sad and selfish at the end because I had no children of my own hearing the truths presented. I was by myself and left soon after. I look at other families and see their togetherness and love and feel the hurt at my loss of my family. Romans 8-28 is one of my favorite verses. This is how the devil works. He wants me to feel alone, unimportant, because I am not a family and to stop me from going to my church. I know if I missed a few weeks, My Pastor and church family would contact me and not forget me and I would go back as I once did before. We have a true loving relationship because we truly are Christians that love our neighbors as God loves us, unconditionally. Pastor once told me I don’t feel uncomfortable if you cry here. You are not the first or will be the last. We are truly a church family. I am one without that family unit, but a member forever of God’s family, an adopted daughter, chosen according to His purpose for me…Amen!

The Trustworthy Prophetic Word.

Peter before his death (which was prophesied almost forty years earlier by Christ; see John 21:18,19 and notes) reminds them they have a permanent reminder of the truth thus he penned this letter.

For we did not follow cunningly devised fables (mythical stories about gods and miracles) when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitness of His majesty. For he received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.” And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. (Christ’s transfiguration, Matthew 17:2)

And so we have the prophetic word, confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:16-20)

Peter goes on to warn the people of destructive doctrines, false teachers and their doom. He talks about their depravity and that they will utterly perish in their own corruption. They entice unstable souls and cannot cease from sin. They are accursed children….(2 Peter 15: 1-22)

God’s promise is not slack, be steadfast looking forward to the Lord Jesus Christ’s return. (2 Peter 3:1-17)

Repent, Believe and Trust, the door of your heart by the will of God can be opened by the Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will be your guide, your helper, in the triune.

Strive to enter the Narrow Gate!!!

Jesus went teaching through cities and villages toward Jerusalem.

And He went through cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. Then one said to Him, Lord, are there a few who are saved?” And He said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek and will not be able.”  (Luke 13:22-30) Read on through Luke 13:35.

Two ways to Life

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way that leads to life, and there are few that find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14) Read on through Matthew 7:29.

You must belong to The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit!!! For His chosen, do repent unto salvation.

Why are we strangers in this world?

We are not of this world. We are just strangers passing through. The Lord, Jesus, told us himself. They hate us who belong to Him. Nothing compares to how our Lord, God was treated. The reaction to His word today is the same. We get that all the time when people immediately get angry when we speak the word to them. They absolutely do not want to hear. They sneer at us. They tell us you have your religion and I have mine. We don’t have a religion we have the perfect truth, God’s word in the Bible inspired through His apostles and men through the Holy Spirit. Even his half brothers James and Jude did not believe until after the resurrection. They became disciples of His truth teaching and preaching His word after they were able to see by His mercy, inspired by the Holy Spirit.

“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of this world, but I chose you out of this world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word I said to you, a servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates My Father also. If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated Me and My Father. But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, They hated Me without a cause.” (John 15:18-25)

We have all seen through His word, that He laid down His life for us and took it back with His power. And He received that command from the Father. (John 10:17-18) You have heard it outside of the bible in places you think you worship Him. Do they insist you read your bible and learn? No, they tell you what they want you to know, which keeps you under their deceptive doctrines. He paid the price for the sins of those who would and will believe until the end of the age. He lived a perfect life, was persecuted, died an innocent man counted among criminals and sinners killed Him. All the Father’s plan for us, His chosen to be free from death at His resurrection. His blood on the cross cleanses us. He no longer sees sin in His sheep and remembers their sins no more.

“But when the Helper comes. Whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father He will testify of me. And you also will bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning.”(John 15:18-27)

Yes, it hurts, yes it is hard to take. But we have been chosen out of the world to preach to all nations as disciples, through no merit of our own. I am a sinner to the magnitude of the Samaritan woman at the well and worse. Now as late in this life as I am, He called me. He has mercy on whom He will have mercy. We have no right to say why did you create me this way. He is creator of all. He is sovereign over all, deny it and burn forever. I am truly blessed that He chose me from the beginning to worship Him forever. Think about it, men are natural worshipers. He made us that way. Before knowing Him, we worship what we will, false prophets, religions, the leaders act as holy as God and are of satan, not God. They put themselves in His place on earth. No one can take His place here. He is here. All idol worship, money, lust, whatever you love most above God is an abomination to Him. He warned the religious leaders that had Him crucified. They loved their rituals so much and they belonged to the devil, their master deceiver, their father. (John 8:1-59)

I have a few in my family that are believers, but they don’t live here. I have fellowship with my church family. Fellowship with believers and doing His work, studying his word daily is what we are guided to do. I have this blog, to be a witness from the Holy Spirit to this passing world to listen. He is calling you and does not wish that any should perish.

The Lord is not slack in His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)

Repentance is to Him, not to the worldly. They cannot forgive us and have no authority over the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, who lives in all believers. They are deceivers that lead you to hell, not heaven. You follow what you will because you are not of God but, the devil, that serpent of old.

I met someone yesterday from my childhood. She spoke about the Lord. My sister looked at me and I said, “You are a born again Christian?” She said, “No I am not born again. She  said, I was born again when I was baptized fifty-five years ago.” How can you truly know the Lord as an infant? We have to grow up in the word. To truly know Him you must become a child, born again and grow in knowledge of His word by study and discernment. The truth will set you free.

Most assuredly I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3)

Can it be anymore clear to you, if you have ears to hear? Do you not know friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself and enemy with God. (James 4:4)

Amen! Jesus said, “I am the Light of the World!” (John 8:12);  “I AM!” (John 8:58); “The Door!” (John 10-7); “The First and The Last!” (Revelation 1:5); “Firstborn from the dead and over all creation!” (Revelation 1:5; Colossians 1:15);  “The First and the Last!” ( Revelation 1:17; 2:8)

Do you need to know more?

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. (Your Heart) If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with Him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. He who has an ear let him hear.” (Revelation 3:20-22)

“Therefore, be zealous and repent”. (Revelation 3:19)

P.S. I just came home from Saginaw today. I noticed that my Jesus is the Answer license plate is gone. I don’t see anyway of it falling off. The area where the screws were look just fine. I can believe it. Oh, well I will have another by this weekend. God knows!
