Standing Amazed

Accuser of the Brethern

hone picts 9-17 638

Satan accuses the children of God,

Of everything bad from their past.

God has forgiven them already,

But Satan wants the guilt to last.

Satan wants you to look down,

And feel as low as you can be.

You forget the grace of God,

And how He set your soul free.

 

You cannot listen to Satan,

And all the lies he will tell.

He wants you to give up on heaven,

And accept your punishment of hell.

He tries to separate you from,

The gifts from God above.

He wants your incompleteness,

So you cannot feel God’s love.

 

When you asked for forgiveness,

And accepted Jesus as Lord.

Your sins were forgotten,

And you were walking in one accord.

You were made righteous by Jesus,

So you could talk to your Father above.

You can be sanctified through His grace,

And protected by His love.

 

Everything is now possible,

But don’t let Satan in between,

To separate you from your inheritance,

Where peace and happiness are seen.

Satan will always accuse you of sin,

And he wants your soul.

He wants to keep you broken,

Instead of confident and whole.

 

It is not your own confidence,

But you have the Holy Spirit inside of you.

It is through God’s goodness,

And there is nothing you can’t do.

TRW 9-21-18

 

Revelation 12:10

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

Hebrews 12:1 

 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

 

Satan’s whole goal in his life is to deceive others into feeling that they are not worthy of God’s love. Satan throws up your past in your face and tells you that you are no good. He picks the times when you are the most vulnerable and then attacks. He lost his claim to heaven and he is jealous of the love that God shows toward you.  He wants to take as many people to hell as he can with him. He convinced 1/3 of the angels to turn from God to follow him. Those angels are now demons with the spirit of hate in their souls. They have been condemned to hell with Satan. Satan is very smart and knows the weakness of man and uses that weakness to separate them from their Father. On this earth, mankind must always be prepared to fight the lies of Satan. Satan will sneak into the shadows of you mind and plant seeds of doubt instead of seeds of greatness. A person must stay close to the Word of God to stay strong enough to do battle with Satan. All we need to do is to use the Word of God to rebuke Satan and all of the evil he wants to inflict on each of us.

The Baby in Me

babay sammy

The baby within me,

Wants to learn more.

It is like being an eaglet,

And wanting to soar.

I can see a better life,

Just slightly out of reach.

I have to go to the Holy Book,

And see what it has to teach.

 

Once I was born again,

It was a starting point for me.

There is so much more to do,

And so much more to see.

I’ll ask God to remove the shield,

That is covering my eyes.

I want to grow in God,

In being merciful and wise.

 

I am willing to try new things,

According to His Holy Word.

Life can be an adventure,

In this difficult and trying world.

I will try to climb each mountain,

Even if I just learned to walk.

I will try to hold onto His Word,

Even if I just learned to talk.

 

Jesus loves the little children,

So I know He will guide my way.

I have felt the love of His arms,

And that is where I long to stay.

I will take each step with eagerness.

I will be joyful in what I do.

I will feel His Spirit with me,

And He will take me through.

Ephesians 4: 11-15

11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

1 Peter 2:1-3

1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, 2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:3 If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

 

Philippians 2:12-15

12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. 14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

 

Being a Christian is all about growth. We are not meant to stay still. We may make mistakes along the way and may fall down in our attempts to lead a better life. A baby automatically will continue to try to turn over until they finally get it done. Then they have to try to figure out how to get back to their back again. It is a struggle, but they automatically want to do more and to grow in knowledge and strength. This is the reason we must realize our re-birth in Christ is the same way. We are starting all over and learning new things. We may fall down in our attempts to learn, but we should get back up to reach that goal that is in our soul. Jesus loves the little children and welcomes them into His loving arms.

Humbled

camera pictures 142

 

Humbled to be God’s child,

Humbled to receive His grace.

Amazed that He created me,

To be the one to fill this space.

I am content with who I am,

And all that God has given to me.

I will try to follow His call,

And be who He wants me to be.

 

I put my trust in You Lord,

That You will supply all my needs.

I will not live in want.

I will not be controlled by greed.

I will look for Your light,

And follow the path in life.

I will look for the open door,

That leads to happiness, not strife.

 

I will not think more highly,

Of myself than I ought.

I was redeemed by your death,

For a huge price, I was bought.

You created man from clay,

You breathed in me a soul.

It is by Your love alone,

That I am complete and whole.

 

Without You I am nothing,

With You, I have been set free.

I can do the impossible,

And be who You created me to be.

Thank You Lord for Your Mercy.

Thank You for Your abundant grace.

I am forever indebted to You,

As I bow before Your Holy Face.

Matthew 18:4

Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Colossians 3:12

Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;

James 4:6

6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble…….Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

1 Peter 5:5-6

5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.       6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

Sometimes we forget that we were made for God’s pleasure. We seek pleasure for ourselves and find pride in our abilities. In reality, we can do nothing without Him and we owe Him all the glory for all that is good in our lives. If we are skilled in scholastic ability, sports, technical skills, it is through His grace that we were given those skills. If we have outward beauty or have a great personality, these also are gifts from God. We are not better than anyone else and should not walk in a prideful attitude. We could not be alive, if it were not for God, our Creator. We need to look to Him for the purpose that He has for us to fulfill while we are walking on this earth. This is just a short period of time, when we think about eternity. Eternity with God should be our first and foremost goal. Think about the “big picture” and how we fit into His plan. Humble yourself before the Lord and before His people.

The Time is Drawing Nigh

phone nov 2017 175

 

Eyes are being opened.

Ears are able to hear.

Great things are happening,

As the time is drawing near.

 

Your lamp oil should be ready,

In case He comes back at night.

This earth shall pass away,

And all things will be made right.

 

Focus on the Word of God.

Don’t let a day go by,

Without spending time with Jesus,

As the time is drawing nigh.

 

Forgive your neighbor and enemy,

Open your home to them.

God forgave us of our sins,

And calls us His friend.

 

Forgiveness did not come easy.

The debt of sin was paid,

By the precious Blood of Jesus.

The way to heaven was made.

 

Jesus is the Way and the Truth.

He is a faithful friend.

This earth will pass away,

But heaven has no end.

 

Stay ready to serve others,

Make the way open and clear.

Be ready for His coming,

The Rapture is drawing near.

Matthew 25:1-13

 

1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

 

The Word of God is being made available throughout the whole world, so that ALL mankind has an opportunity to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Being saved is a moment in time. For some. it may have been very recently, maybe even yesterday. For others, it may have been years. We cannot grow weary in waiting for the return of Jesus to gather His “bride”, which is His church. His church must stay ready and keep their lamps lit with the love of God, so that the way remains clear. It is not time to play with sin and think that there is time to claim Jesus after you have had your fun in life. No one knows the time when Jesus will come back. Those who are saved will be gathered up with Him and others will be left behind to face the tribulation that the Bible speaks of.  Tribulation is worse than the worst horror film that you have ever  seen. It is a horror beyond any form of torture. The worst thing about the tribulation period is that it will be VERY difficult to be saved after this time. If a person does not have the willpower to be saved now and commit their life to Jesus, how can they possibly be able to do it, when it will be made much more difficult?

An Eruption of Praise

Jan 2018 366

An eruptions of praise,

Filled the church today.

The Name of Jesus was lifted,

As they shouted and prayed.

They were praising their Jesus,

And how they loved Him so.

They felt a new freedom,

And let strife and sin go.

 

They claimed Jesus as their Savior.

They praised Jesus as Lord.

They gave up their worries,

As they walked through this world.

They claimed Jesus as their healer.

Their sickness flowed away.

It was replaced with great peace,

And in their hearts is where He’ll stay.

 

They claimed Jesus as their friend,

The One they can trust each day.

They can look for a good tomorrow,

And the One they can trust today.

They claim His faithfulness.

They were basking in His love,

As His Spirit entered the church,

From the heavens up above.

 

The angels erupt in the heavens,

With great praise every day.

Like us, they praise the One,

Who is with them to stay.

Holy, Holy, Holy,

Is our Lord and our Friend.

We will worship Him forever,

In a paradise with no end.

TRW 9-17-18

Revelation 4:8

And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

Isaiah 6:3

And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

 

I love to feel the presence of the Holy Spirit as it enters the church and takes over. The praise of God’s people encourages the presence of God. He is with us every day, but there is a sweet kind of peace that can be experienced as God’s people praise Him with their whole hearts. He brings them the reassurance that their praise is heard and that He has enough grace to heal all of their problems. They take that peace with them as a special treasure that they have been given by their Creator. He communicates with His people by covering them with the sweet feeling of His grace. He has an abundance of grace available, so wherever you are at, praise His Name with every fiber of your soul and you will feel His presence. It is a sweet, sweet perfume that enters your soul.

The Recording in My Head

20160701_124151

 

My reaction in this life responds,

To the recordings in my head.

If you are filled with negativity,

You will respond with fear and dread.

Learn to listen to your Father God.

He says you are perfectly made.

You can walk with confidence,

And not in the devil’s charade.

 

You can do all things,

With God’s Spirit inside.

You can do the unexpected.

There’s no wave you can’t ride.

You can let go of the fear,

That Satan puts in your head.

Give life your best try.

Say: I am God’s best, instead.

 

Negative recordings from life,

Will stop you in your tracks.

They will be the determinant,

Of how you will tend to react.

You will hide from your destiny,

You will miss the best of life.

You will walk in confusion,

Living in doubt and strife.

 

Look to His Holy Word.

You were made in His image with love.

Your greatest Advocate,

Made earth and heaven above.

You can do even greater things,

Because His Spirit resides in you.

You are never alone,

His Word is honest and true.

TRW 9-16-18

Genesis 1:26-31

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

29And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

30And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

31And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

 

God was so pleased with His creation of man that He gave him rule over all living things. Do you know anyone who has that much love or confidence in you? God does!!! Know who you are in Christ and realize that Jesus allows you to be a child of the King and to walk with His Spirit inside of you. You can be made well and whole, by the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, who erased all of our sins. We no longer need to walk in shame and can wipe the negative recordings, of Satan, out of our head and do what God intended for us to do.

The Next Event

The rapture is the next event.

We do not know how soon.

It could be at midnight,

Or suddenly at noon.

Jesus will appear in the clouds,

And call His church home.

His promises are true,

And we will never be alone.

 

He will receive us unto Him,

Just like it says in read.

Believers will be changed,

And raised with the dead.

We are not without hope,

Since we gave our life to Him.

He erased our iniquities,

And forgave us of all sin.

 

We will all be together,

With the Saints of Old .

This has been our hope forever.

This which was foretold.

We will be caught up together,

To meet our Jesus in the air.

We will see our precious Savior,

And know how much He cared.

 

For most that are left behind,

It will be forever too late.

There will be a great tribulation.

With pain, true fear and hate.

The great rapture is the next event,

You must be ready or left behind.

Open the eyes of your heart now,

To be restored in your soul and mind.

 

The choice is yours to make.

It is the greatest choice in your life,

Choose Jesus and heaven,

Or choose Satan and all his strife.

Heaven is real for all,

And so is hell below.

Be ready when you see Jesus,

Stay ready and eager to go.

John 14:1-7

1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.

2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

 

1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Staying Refreshed

pretty princesss

 

Staying refreshed in this life.

Is not an easy thing to do.

Just take a deep breath.

And let God take you through.

You may feel worn out,

At the end of each day.

Take the load off your mind,

As you empty out and pray.

 

God doesn’t mind if you dump out,

Everything on your mind.

He is there to refresh you,

So you can stay loving and kind.

Everyone has to do their part.

You are part of His divine plan.

Your task is important to God,

In this repetitive earthly land.

 

You can find joy and can rejoice,

That you were able to get things done.

He has supplied you with your needs,

As you walk in oneness with His Son.

Be transformed by His goodness.

Feel the abundance of His grace.

Go through every task you have,

With a smile upon your face.

 

Life on earth is not perfect,

But there is much to be grateful for.

Payback is not necessary.

God will be keeping score.

Staying refreshed in this life.

Is not an easy thing to do.

Just take a deep breath.

And let God take you through.

TRW 9-14-18

Isaiah 40:31

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Many times in life, we get tired of the same old, same old. We get tired of seeing people struggle and never coming out ahead. We get tired of the continual complaints about life. We get tired of the battle that we face each day as the devil tries to weaken our faith. When we stay in prayerful thanksgiving, we will find a peace that God is covering our lives. We will live beyond our mustard seed of faith and live in expectancy of good things. A child looks with expectancy for Christmas morning because they know there is something special about to happen. We should look forward to each day KNOWING that something good is going to happen. The good may be that we see a new bloom on a flower that we planted, or that a hummingbird stopped by the plants outside the window. If we add up all the little things, we can see the joy in life.

Looking to the Future

Looking to the future,

The end is soon to come.

Continue to live life.

It is not time to hide or run.

No one knows the time.

The Bible tells us so.

Are these truly the last days,

On this earth that we know?

 

There are indications of  things,

That will happen in the last days,

When there is so much confusion,

In all of man’s ways.

The last days were told of,

Over two thousand years ago.

Our Savior is coming back.

We must not waiver to and fro.

 

We have seen numerous wars,

And perils on this earth.

This is the beginning of sorrow,

As we approach our final re-birth.

The name of Christ is hated.

We have battles every day.

So when is the end really near?

What can the Christian say?

 

We need to pray for our nation,

And the leaders that we have elected.

Anyone who speaks of Christ,

May be mocked and rejected.

There are false prophets arising,

Who will deceive many here.

We need to stay aware,

And make our stand real clear.

 

People will turn from the truth,

Including those who preach the Word.

Be careful what you believe,

In this tainted and corrupt world.

We must have discerning ears,

And guard our fragile hearts,

As we anxiously wait for Jesus,

And want the end-times to start.

2 Timothy 3:1-5

1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Mark 13:32

 But of that day and [that] hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.

Matthew 24:7

 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

 

We must keep working to bring in more people to the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ, as we wait for His return. Stay ready for no one knows the time for Christ’s return except for His Father, God.
