As time gets closer and closer and extremely closer to Christ’s return… Everything seems so out of control. The truth is it may be out of our control, but God is completely in control, and He is our: stronghold, our anchor, our comforter, our shelter, our shield, our protector, our provider of needs*, our bestest friend, our dad, and our deliverer.
1.The difference between good works/deeds VS. obedience to God ( listening to HIS commandments) ( HINT to start: a bad heart can do a good deed in selfish intentions…)
2. What does God’s Word say about reaping what you sew, suffering for righteousness, and why some unrepentant sinners seem to still be thriving, and others dying horridly. ( HINT: The book of Job, the 3 wise men, and God being all knowing)
3. How Romans 8:28 plays into reaping and sewing ( HINT: 1st John 4:8)
4. Why ignorance is NOT a legitimate justification to sin ( HINT: Is ignorance an excuse to break the laws of today’s legal system.)
5. What is our purpose? Factoring in sanctification ( becoming more and more Christ-like), and considering that we should be able to work with whatever life gives, based on what God says, not the world. ( HINT: Our purpose is so much deeper than a type of career/ job.)
6. How do we recognize real TRUTH, from master deception from the devil? (HINT: Truth requires BOTH SPIRIT(1ST COR 13:4,8) & WORD (Reading God’s word like it’s alive, not like something to commit to memory and think you know all to well; pride is DEATHLY.)
All things pure and for good, you can for the most part say: are of divine inspiration; ‘We are living in the dawn of a new era’- Scar from, “The Lion King.” In our current days of living, hyenas so to speak, driven by nothing but evil, due to their complete avoidance of God, have encompassed the surface of the Earth, an Earth that itself has become darkened, sick in climate, void of peace and deprived of the ability to nuture life.
Just like in, “The Lion King,” where, Mufasa’s son Simba overthrows the evil that became rampant and life deteriorating, Yahweh’s ( aka Jehovah’s) son, Jesus Christ is very soon, any day now, going to overthrow the evil and take his rightful place as 👑 King.
You’re probably feeling beat down, like we all are at this point, get back up, get your bible. Like a warrior against the darkness open it and read it, pray, and fight the good fight in God’s holy love till the very last second. Our Savior is coming!
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
“For the Lord Himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call and with the sound of God’s trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever.”
“While he was going and they were gazing up toward heaven, suddenly two men in white robes stood by them. They said, ‘Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking up toward heaven? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw Him go into heaven.’”
“So Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for Him.”
“Keep awake therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But understand this: if the owner of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour.”
“Do not be astonished at this; for the hour is coming when all who are in their graves will hear His voice and will come out—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.”
“Be patient, therefore, beloved, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious crop from the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains.”
Above is a link to Scriptures to help with overcoming Fear
God is NOT a religion. God is not just Baptist, Pentecostal, Jehovah’s Witnesess, Apostolic, Orthodox, or Jewish, etc. God is not just for Christians.
God is for everyone.
God is for those lost and broken, God is for the liars, the murderers, the gangsters, the rebels, the drunkards, the fornicators, the violent and the unruly.
God knows both Christians and non- Christians alike, make mistakes every single day; and for those mistakes God Almighty Jehovah’s son, Jesus Christ, takes that blame. Christ took everything we have ever did wrong, and paid for it through a very brutal suffering, and the most severe and tragic, but loving sacrifice of his life.
It would be as if your own father on Earth or another very close to you, fed themselves to a pack of hungry wolves just so you could get away safely and have another chance at life, even though you had treated them so often disrespectfully and disobediently.
So how do you know that God and His word The Bible, is the truth?
A lot people, I myself a long time ago, young adults that chose the college path, and those in Scientific fields, often challenge whether God is real.
I have heard people say how do you know Satan isn’t actually the good guy and God took his story and twisted it?!
The Bible is God’s word, it is centered around the story of Christ, Not Satan, Satan though still mentioned is not the focus. And if you actually sit down and pray and read God’s Word ( Eph. 6, evilness all around you will try to stop you and fight you and distract you from praying and reading the Bible) you will find there is advice in there that can FIX EVERY SINGLE PROBLEM WE HAVE, or at least give us the wisest mentality to overcome and be at peace when problems exist.
When you apply and ask God to help you to get some of his holy spirit( power) to apply what is in the Bible, your life, it suddenly starts to make sense, your conscience feels so free and you feel confident and alive and thus happier and more peaceful.
Now Satan, he is still God’s son. God still made him AND STILL CARES ABOUT HIM, and this is how you know God IS THE TRUTH. We ourselves behave like Satan often when we disobey God; we get proud, lustful, full of hate, slanderous, vicious, verbally aggressive, without self-control, skilled and crafty at deceiving and manipulating, we are all still God’s kids though he never says, I gave up on him or her. Never does he say that, EVER! But as we continue in this way, our own selfish unruly ways, we make a mess out of our soul, make scars for life through the fights and ruined relationships we destroy with our ungodly behavior. Everything we do that God says not to do, does cause harm even if you cannot see it right away, damage after damage after damage is going to make recovery a little more difficult, but finding God now, calling out to him now, will save you.
God is pure first then love 1st John 4:8
And love is 1st Cor 13:4,8
Still not sure if God is real, pray to him from the bottom of your heart; when you need a friend, talk to him, he’s there for you, and he does answer at just the perfect moment. Put your heart in the right place ( pure intentions)& Keep praying, God cares so much for you.
Where is the love in this world? “What’s wrong with the world mama, people acting like they ain’t got no mama?”
God is where love comes from, he is the only origin and source of all goodness, God is love 1st John 4:8/ 1Cor 13:4,8. No God, means no love, burnin down churches and bibles, destroying and hating one another, when the truth is we are all connected, not just a bunch of random people, that’s why the loves not here, people want nothing to do with God, The reality is we NEED God, that is our dad, that is our maker, you wanna tell the big guy with your instruction manual to get away from you, then yikes for you.
In this life, we NEED God, if we want to survive and have strength to keep on going, no matter how tumultuous things get.
When Forrest Gump’s mom said: “Life’s like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” It’s true. Just because you get hired one day at what you think is the best job in the world, or just because you got into a very prestigious college, or even graduated from one, or found somebody wealthy to marry, or grew up in a family of what the world says ‘will make it out there,’ because they have ‘connections.’ Or even if you had a very very rough upbringing and somehow, ‘come to be somebody..’ THERE ARE CURVE BALLS FOR EVERYONE. I’m sure we’ve all said it at least one time or another, once we get out there in the world completely on our own, and reality sets in: “It just seems like it’s one thing after another.” ( aka you never know what you’re gonna get), life is still like 🍫 chocolates though *** when you have God on your side( Deut31:6)**** It is always one thing after another for EVERYONE, because this is not the life God wanted for us, this life is to test us and for God to find those with hearts in the right place, then change the world, remove the evil, and reward those that remained*** loyal ****from the moment they came to find God till Christ’s second return.
Loyalty is everything, don’t fool around with what God says not to, it’s more severe than you think.
What God does for his children is:
Give us a purpose beyond this world. A purpose bigger than this life we’re striving and barely surviving through, right now in this messed up world( this world is currently under Satan’s domain, just for a tiny bit longer though.)
Provides us with strength, endurance, peace, joy beyond normal, humility, endurance ( through his Holy Spirit) when we obey him and are loyal to him with all our heart, mind, and soul.
Gives us the The WISEST WISDOM, EVER, EVER! You want to be super smart, put your heart in the right place, obey his every commandment, even keep your thoughts and intentions clean, and come to know God.
Protects us, and provides for our NEEDS( not wants) he knows what we NEED( and what we want may actually NOT be best ( it may even be dangerous) for us, he is ultimately Wisest).
And so you say, LOL! I’m a mess, God don’t want me! Truth is..He made you! You are his, you just got off path. He still wants you, though! He is waiting for you to cry out to him, so he knows you want to be helped, he cares about you, he doesn’t want evilness and Satan trying to bring you way down under into the darkness any longer. He didn’t let Jesus go through horrible heart breaking torture just so 5 golden hearted people could be rescued, he wants EVERY SINGLE ONE OF CHILDREN ( he made all of us, one by one by one by one, for almost 10,000 plus years of human history. There is still time. Soon though Satan has got to go, and that includes everyone and everything that is causing confusion, chaos, hatred, violence, crime, selfishness, jealousy; these things just weren’t in God’s original plan , but humans got off path right from the start( Adam and Eve), so soon God WILL send Christ to clean up this mess, so there will be perfect peace.
Do you want perfect peace, it’s coming, but you’re gonna need to draw close to God NOW, before the destruction of all evil sets in, bible prophecy is already HAPPENING NOW.
God needs to be your priority if you want to survive and grow in strength. And have real meaningful purpose.
Make it a goal today: to smile a kind smile, at someone with a frown, or whose mouth is upside down:) And tell them “Did you know God made them with a unique purpose, so don’t give up!”
Money: you work for it (most have to work very very hard for it), it pays your bills, buys your things, gets you places, keeps you in a place to live, maybe bails you out of jail, for some in dark situations people use it to buy their way outta being jumped, on and on and on…
Faith: you work for it( it requires very very hard work for all ( because the Devil never sleeps,) but there is no injustice in who can have it), even when you have NO money and you’ve tried EVERYTHING within your own ability to get a job, do some gigs, mow a lawn, sell some crafts, wash some cars, and if it still isn’t working, you better believe it… God will pay the bills of those that have Faith in Him( those that love him and are righteous to obey him), God will give his children what they NEED. And if they get off path, with prayer, ( and a great deal of Faith), God can help even those with a change of heart, to get out of dark situations for good.
Money: it’s paper, it’s tangible, you can touch it, see it, you know it’s there, you can carry it around like it’s your ticket to get you whatever you need, for some.
This may be why the Bible says you cannot serve two masters, one cannot ***serve*** money and God, they are completely opposite substances, one tangible, one not( Faith is something you cannot buy, either .)
**** serve meaning you earn money to pay your bills sure, Romans 13, and “pay Caesar’s things to Ceasar,” but at the end of the day if money isn’t there right away, don’t kill one another, God should be your God, not money. Just Pray. God is STILL THE ALMIGHTY, if he wanted to he could LET every bank on Earth blow up in ten minutes, if he knew that was something that should happen, HE COULD, then what use is money.
Faith: you cannot see, not feel, nor hold it in your hands, but it’s a powerful line of trust between you and God ,where you’ve witnessed the incredible things He can do before, and you’ve experienced your prayers answered at desperate times before, and you just KNOW that He is there watching over you, and there has never been a time where you’ve been let down. Even when you felt like: “Oh my gosh what am I gonna do, nothing is working, I’ve tried this, I’ve done that, we’re about to be homeless, and no one cares, what’s going on, this isn’t fair, etc, etc” Many without Faith will call miraculous answers to prayer, a coincidence or luck, but the truth is, God just helped you out because He loves you.
Pray… with your whole heart, not half hearted, not texting and praying, not attention diverted here in there, give him your full attention, your whole heart, and let trust set in and breathe. Then have patience, and repeat if you have to, and keep going, don’t give up. He knows what is ultimately best, ( if you’ve ever seen ‘Fairly Odd Parents’ from Nickelodeon, that kid, Timmy got everything he wished for from his fairy friends, but in the end he was always wishing he never made that wish,thank goodness we have God who knows what is best so that doesn’t happen,) he is looking down with a majestically glorious birds’ eye view, he sees EVERYTHING, and wants EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE, to work together for good for EVERYONE that loves him.
Revelation 21:1-4 ESV /
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 ESV /
For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
1 Corinthians 2:9 ESV /
But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”—
John 6:35-40 ESV
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. ..
Oh if only we had more money some will say, if I just had a nice fancy house, if I could just find my other half others contest, why don’t I get children, where’s my health, what if all the bills were paid off every single one, if I could just have a nicer set of calves.. etc. etc.
And if you had it all?
Would that really make it all better. Then what? You got it all, did it all, your every heart’s desire has been satisfied, so now what are you supposed to keep living for, sure you have your kids, you’re all healthy together in a dream house, and you’ve bought every single thing you have ever wanted, you have all the time in the world because everything is going YOUR way, you’ve “been there done that, been there done that, been there, done that!” Suddenly your purpose seems purposeless, no suspense, no beautiful thematic music playing in the back of your mind because you never fought, never cried, never struggled, never grew stronger, to let your heart envelop your reward in absolute appreciation.
God knows why and what he made you for, you are unique, and the battle has grown very very VERY difficult!
BUT DONT YOU DARE GIVE UP!
Stay strong in God’s love, fight the hate and provocation of your mind that Satan is inflicting.
Keep on going!
The battle is almost won!
“Anastasia,” the cartoon based film, about a young girl who lost her family to the evil ruler, Rasputin; And after hitting her head in trying to escape from the attack on her family, forgot her identity, only to recover it through the conquering of great evil, not only from Rasputin, but some *PERSONIFIED GREEN FOG* The fog appears to symbolize the presence of evil, and is always present during very difficult struggles …
“The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” the movie based on one of C.S. Lewis’ additions to “The Chronicles of Narnia,” series:
Edmund, Lucy, Prince Caspian, Eustace, and the talking Rat, Reep a Cheep and crew board the Dawn Treader headed to conquer not only a * GREEN MIST THAT IS SOMEHOW ALIVE* but even more so the darkness within themselves. 🕊
And more recently, “The Bird Box,” where a young mom and her two children must cover their eyes with blind folds from
* Something EVIL IN THE FOG*
To avoid it attacking them mentally, and in turn causing suicide.
( I must say I honestly couldn’t watch this whole movie, it’s definitely not entertainment God is ok with, for reasons you have to pray about to understand, but I got the gist of it with the first 20 min.)
So… all three movies, and there has gotta be many more examples have this in common:
*EPH. Ch.6 🙏🙏🙏🕊🕊🕊♥️ ( READ THIS) *
A battle of evilness *within ourselves* that can be influenced by the evil outside, if we don’t stay very close to God by hating what is bad, and trusting him, listening to his commandments, and knowing he can be the best friend you’ll ever have.
Evilness inside ourselves can include: lack of self-confidence, self -hate, jealousy, fear of not having enough money or food or what not, worry that others don’t like you, feeling lonely, past trauma, guilt from anything, fear of anything that isn’t God, worry, anxiety, depression, lack of trust, not truly being able to forgive someone, forgetting who you are.
To that darkness inside, God says, let’s conquer it!
“The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
Matthew 6:24-25 24“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. 25“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
Money being a master means you basically allow it to replace God and it has become your new God; if you think about it too much, neglect other matters in life to slave for it, even sin for it, lie for it, completely forget to even read your Bible on a regular basis or pray, it has consumed the majority of your time, and so you have become in love with, and now are a slave to it, and no longer have God. At this point you are probably a very lost, scared and troubled person deep down inside, because you are essentially expecting a piece of processed and bleached, then colored tree to save your life.
God ALWAYS, gives His Children what they NEED. We may worry and whine,
“ How are we gonna pay this rent?!”
“ I ain’t got no clothes!”
“Well whose gonna pay these bills!”
But every month that goes by even if we move to a new place, even if we bunk with family for awhile we always have shelter, and never have we actually had to get up and go about life naked because there wasn’t some kind of loincloth in our closet.
And somehow the bills got payed again, like the 70983655th time in a row, even if they were a year late, they’re just demerits for us big kids..
(The concept of your credit score got ruined, is about the same as, “The teacher made me switch my good kid green card to Orange, today,) it’s actually really NOT life and 💀 death.
We were ALL MADE FOR A CERTAIN SPECIAL, UNIQUE REASON, all of us.
If you’re gonna let someone make you feel worthless or thrive off whether or not they think you’re cool, that’s prison. People all fall of their chairs one time or another and put their phone in the fridge and crash their car into their garage door. People shouldn’t be where/ how you determine how much you’re worth, ONLY GOD. And he made you himself, so don’t make fun of his craftsmanship, be nice♥️Psalm 118:8
Psalm 139:13-14 You alone created my inner being. You knitted me together inside my mother. I will give thanks to you because I have been so amazingly and miraculously made. Your works are miraculous, and my soul is fully aware of this.
And there is seriously nothing to be afraid of if you’ve been honoring God with your heart genuinely, he’s gonna be there for you. Trusting God, is like going into a surgery, you don’t ask the surgeon: “How long is this gonna take?”
“Exactly how much pain am I gonna feel?”
“ Exactly what tool are you gonna use?” You just lean back and pray, and let things be ✅ done
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand
Col 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive any complaint you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
Forgiveness, the real kind, should allow you to imagine yourself giving the person you’ve had strife with, a hug and saying well done, we got through this crazy life.
Ephesians ch . 6🗡
To let our light shine we must first ‘conquer the darkness within ourselves’ and the love of God: 1st Cor 13:4,8 can help us know and understand real truth ( God’s Word), and help us do just that🕊
Look out for THE FOG..
“Nah, I got a big God”♥️☺️
We hear it all the time, ‘God loves you, Jesus died for you; John 3:16,’ or at least we used to before the world shunned light 💡- and embraced the darkness movement of corruption through hatred and zero compassion.
Guess what: Adam and Eve were perfect.
Jesus was perfect.
The difference: one of those individuals was close to his dad in heaven, God Almighty Jehovah. Therefore he was more readily equipped to walk through darkness without being taken out super easily by the evilness and demons.
But something most people hardly ever let hit their heart fully is: what Jesus did was no ‘walk in the park,’ no ‘piece of cake,’ was not what we even realize. He was perfect, but anyone in a human body form, is so easily prone to sin and all that entitles: anger, pride, jealousy, selfishness, depression, anxiety, fear, confusion, deep pain, guilt, hurt, hubris, loss of physical strength, so many tears.
The closer you draw to God, obeying him, letting him bless you with Holy Spirit for whatever efforts, even small if that’s all you Genuinely have strength to do, the more you become like Christ, the less gullible, vulnerable, incapable of getting back up each time you fall.
And Jehovah God does have feelings too, I think us as humans never ever think about that at all, we think, ‘Oh, well he’s the Almighty he can handle everything,’ well sure, but you do realize we are made in his image, and he like a loving Father, that he is, gets so saddened and upset when any of us, as his kids get ourselves in such messes, and keep repeating the mistakes that cut us so deep. We hurt him because we never learn nor listen, he loves us, he knows, and just wants what is best for us.
I’m not sure honestly why us humans are so prone to keep repeating the same patterns of our mistakes that hurt us so much, we sometimes feel like it’s for love, to easily forget and forgive, because it’s our duty, because it’s the quickest, simplest way to ease pain ( going back to the very thing that gives you an instant happiness, then gets you in a horrible funk again), maybe because you are not supposed to give up, then when you want to listen to God entirely, the way of the world has only it’s foolish advice. Is this where all selfishness is abandoned by ALL, even if it means things are not the way you’d or even how they’d like it, but the way God would have it, for the sake of ALL humanity, what would God say?
Human kind has repeated history over and over and over, it’s historically insane,
Insanity: ‘Doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.’
How about we really stop, breathe, and ALL make a difference, let’s make a change, let us help God save the world by one act of selflessness at a time, that God would be proud of♥️💭
What is done is done, but What needs to change to stop the cycle of madness: A bad habit? A too close association( even if a relative, no matter how much you love a person sometimes a person’s issues will never ever vibe well with your issues, and everyone has got issues, but if you know this, what has got to change )? And remember ONLY God can change someone; if they want to work with him, so forget about trying to change someone, it’s too painful and NEVER works. A behavior? A way of thinking? These are just opinions of a flawed human writer, but food for thought. But you think about it for yourself, and ask God for guidance and to show you clearly, from his word the Bible ( the real Truth.) If things still don’t make sense don’t give up, ask him more questions, have a good heart, be patient, don’t lose hope.
Thank you God for all that you are, and for letting your son risk his life for us, so we could come to understand, it is NOT hopeless, nothing is hopeless, we love you, and thank you for ALWAYS being there for every single one of us( something no human can in his own will power be capable of.)
‘Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.’
This world speaks of Santa, of magic, of unicorns, fairies, mermaids, dragons, elf’s, and wizards…and every movie you see based on these things always emphasizes one very important thing: ‘You gotta BELIEVE.’ It’s always the grown-ups (adults), in these movies that think all these concepts of magical and mystical creatures are completely bonkers, nuts, and say anyone who thinks of such things should go to the ward. It’s pretty much everytime in such movies, the kids, who aren’t afraid to stand firm in what they believe in, no matter how crazy their parents think they are, or how much other kids may make fun of them.
Now knowing this, realize that the return of the Messiah, the 2nd coming of Christ ( which there was And IS actual**** real EVIDENCE for, ALL AROUND US. ) Hebrews 11:1 ***evidence
is going to require faith ( ‘child-like faith,’ don’t worry about what other non-believing people say, stand firm, no matter how crazy the world thinks you are, many many many are all very blind right now ( too much pride, hate, corruption, deception, lies, and love of what is not God).
“2 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children,you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.5 And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.”
But God is the miracle…
the only perfect answer to all crazy and out of control, too many to count problems for humans EVERYWHERE.
‘You gotta Believe.’
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.🕊
( August 2018)
(3 days ago Dec. 2018)
12 The sixth angel poured out his bowl on pthe great river Euphrates, and qits water was dried up, rto prepare the way for the king.
Daniel Ch .10
On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bankof the great river, the Tigris, 5 I looked up and there before me was a man dressed in linen, with a belt of fine goldfrom Uphaz around his waist. 6 His body was like topaz, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches,his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude.
7 I, Daniel, was the only one who saw the vision; those who were with me did not see it, but such terror overwhelmed them that they fled and hid themselves.8 So I was left alone, gazing at this great vision; I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale and I was helpless. 9 Then I heard him speaking, and as I listened to him, I fell into a deep sleep, my face to the ground.
10 A hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees.11 He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling.
12 Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. 13 But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia.14 Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.”
Kings of the South and the North
2 “Now then, I tell you the truth: Three more kings will arise in Persia, and then a fourth, who will be far richer than all the others. When he has gained power by his wealth, he will stir up everyone against the kingdom of Greece. 3 Then a mighty king will arise, who will rule with great power and do as he pleases.4 After he has arisen, his empire will be broken up and parceled out toward the four winds of heaven. It will not go to his descendants, nor will it have the power he exercised, because his empire will be uprooted and given to others.
5 “The king of the South will become strong, but one of his commanders will become even stronger than he and will rule his own kingdom with great power.6 After some years, they will become allies. The daughter of the king of the South will go to the king of the North to make an alliance, but she will not retain her power, and he and his power[a] will not last. In those days she will be betrayed, together with her royal escort and her father[b] and the one who supported her.
7 “One from her family line will arise to take her place. He will attack the forces of the king of the North and enter his fortress; he will fight against them and be victorious. 8 He will also seize their gods, their metal images and their valuable articles of silver and gold and carry them off to Egypt. For some years he will leave the king of the North alone. 9 Then the king of the North will invade the realm of the king of the South but will retreat to his own country. 10 His sons will prepare for war and assemble a great army, which will sweep on like an irresistible flood and carry the battle as far as his fortress.
11 “Then the king of the South will march out in a rage and fight against the king of the North, who will raise a large army, but it will be defeated.12 When the army is carried off, the king of the South will be filled with pride and will slaughter many thousands, yet he will not remain triumphant. 13 For the king of the North will muster another army, larger than the first; and after several years, he will advance with a huge army fully equipped.
14 “In those times many will rise against the king of the South. Those who are violent among your own people will rebel in fulfillment of the vision, but without success. 15 Then the king of the North will come and build up siege ramps and will capture a fortified city. The forces of the South will be powerless to resist; even their best troops will not have the strength to stand. 16 The invader will do as he pleases; no one will be able to stand against him. He will establish himself in the Beautiful Land and will have the power to destroy it. 17 He will determine to come with the might of his entire kingdom and will make an alliance with the king of the South. And he will give him a daughter in marriage in order to overthrow the kingdom, but his plans[c]will not succeed or help him. 18 Then he will turn his attention to the coastlandsand will take many of them, but a commander will put an end to his insolence and will turn his insolence back on him. 19 After this, he will turn back toward the fortresses of his own country but will stumble and fall, to be seen no more.
20 “His successor will send out a tax collector to maintain the royal splendor.In a few years, however, he will be destroyed, yet not in anger or in battle.
21 “He will be succeeded by a contemptible person who has not been given the honor of royalty. He will invade the kingdom when its people feel secure, and he will seize it through intrigue. 22 Then an overwhelming army will be swept away before him; both it and a prince of the covenant will be destroyed. 23 After coming to an agreement with him, he will act deceitfully, and with only a few people he will rise to power. 24 When the richest provinces feel secure, he will invade them and will achieve what neither his fathers nor his forefathers did. He will distribute plunder, loot and wealth among his followers. He will plot the overthrow of fortresses—but only for a time.
25 “With a large army he will stir up his strength and courage against the king of the South. The king of the South will wage war with a large and very powerful army, but he will not be able to stand because of the plots devised against him. 26 Those who eat from the king’s provisions will try to destroy him; his army will be swept away, and many will fall in battle. 27 The two kings, with their hearts bent on evil, will sit at the same table and lie to each other, but to no avail, because an end will still come at the appointed time. 28 The king of the North will return to his own country with great wealth, but his heart will be set against the holy covenant. He will take action against it and then return to his own country.
29 “At the appointed time he will invade the South again, but this time the outcome will be different from what it was before. 30 Ships of the western coastlands will oppose him, and he will lose heart. Then he will turn back and vent his fury against the holy covenant. He will return and show favor to those who forsake the holy covenant.
31 “His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation. 32 With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him.
33 “Those who are wise will instructmany, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered. 34 When they fall, they will receive a little help, and many who are not sincere will join them. 35 Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.
The King Who Exalts Himself
36 “The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. 37 He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all.38 Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his ancestors he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. 39 He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price.[d]
40 “At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood. 41 He will also invade the Beautiful Land. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from his hand. 42 He will extend his power over many countries; Egypt will not escape. 43 He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyansand Cushites[e] in submission. 44 But reports from the east and the north will alarm him, and he will set out in a great rage to destroy and annihilate many.45 He will pitch his royal tents between the seas at[f] the beautiful holy mountain. Yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him.
“Behold, I am coming quickly. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of prophecy in this book [ the bible].”
God’s Words ARE the only Eternal Truth.. and it takes love to fully, truly understand.
( yes, even good messages and advice you hear on movies, shows, music, books, etc. may sound good, but may not be fully accurate.)
Communication is so complex even from human to human, let alone from God to human thru Christ or from human thru Christ to God. From human to human our tone, pitch, choice of words, body language, facial expression, and VERY very IMPORTANT, something people always forget to do, BEING SILENT, to TAKE THE TIME to LISTEN, and NOT talk over someone, can make the difference between a verbal attack and a difficult, but yet peaceful transition during a confrontation between two people ( it happens, fights happen. We are imperfect humans after all, but Forgiveness ASAP is vital). To have: ‘order in the court’ so to speak for a fair trial, between two individuals that feel hurt or wronged, requires both the defendant and the plaintiff get the chance to share their side without interruption. Sometimes mediators are necessary for clarity, or if both parties cannot have self-control. Yelling usually comes when someone doesn’t get to fully and accurately share what they need to, they then start screaming out words in desperation, and if that doesn’t work they try to hurt the other person with hurtful words because they may themselves feel wronged. Skip all that ca ca and just love, love never fails ( 1st Cor 13:4,8). At times it takes 10 times to get our words out right, with what our heart REALLY means, and not just the mean, but untrue things we say out of anger; so listening without interruption gives a hurt person the chance to feel loved and cared for and not just ignored and insignificant.
Thus, love, is needed for everyone, despite their differences in beliefs, ideas, feelings, culture, meanness, love covers a multitude of sin; not trying to change what is, but finding a way to love it still, and allowing God to do his work( while still of course captivating your own thoughts in Christ which happens by getting closer and closer to God by listening to ALL that he commands, which makes captivating your thoughts in Christ easier, with time).
The opposite of love is hate, so where there is hate there will never be truth, hate kills truth, divides everyone, destroys, angers, instills violence, ruins relationships, ends lives, and hurts God.
Hate: (Try Not NOT not to do this).
Name calling: ( you selfish, you proud, narcissist, hater, you ugly, you on and on, she/ he looks like a …)
belittling ( bringing up someone’s past, especially if they’ve taken up the bravery ( with God’s help) to move forward, and make changes.)
Pity ( no one loves me, a long time ago this happened to me, life is not fair, no one ever does this for me..)
[Pride & Pity go hand in hand, where there is Pride, Pity often follows, because a person feels very hurt, but has a very hard time saying sorry, though they know they did wrong, but often are Not listened to ever, whole-heartedly by anyone either]. GOD ALWAYS LISTENS TO US ALL THOUGH, he knows our heart, no matter how jumbled up our words may come out.
Pride ( you got to be willing to own up when you’ve made a mistake and say sorry from your heart, and Forgive ( humans make mistakes, don’t expect a human to be perfectly reliable or 100% capable, we are imperfect humans, NOT perfect God). Even if you feel like a kid that just got out of his/ her room from time out after throwing the whole families’ dinner on the floor in tantrum, you still got to come out from your room at some point smile and keep living, not go to some dark place in your soul.)
jealousy/envy ( Is hate for what God gave You, and idolizing others and their stuff/ making them and that your God, thus hurting God).
Jumping to conclusions ( haste makes waste) patience is key, slow down, stay silent, let God instruct you, don’t fall into any of Satan’s traps.
Fear, God does NOT USE FEAR as a tactic to get people to listen, he always loves.
There is a difference between loving rebuke and hate, a loving rebuke doesn’t set out to make a person feel small. It uses the golden rule, do to others as you would like done to you( including speaking with respect). Before you act, ask yourself: what would Jesus do, what would he say in this situation?) A loving rebuke uses constructive criticism: actual step by step instructions that can be of actual use to another person.
( example: Hey Mary, maybe instead of getting so mad every time things don’t go your way, perhaps you try looking at it this way: God knows what is best for you, he is not gonna let you turn spoiled rotten, but he knows what you do need right now, and he never has let you down, right?)
“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks*** it will be opened. 11 If a son asks for [a]bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” Luke 11:9-13
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.*** 1st Cor13:4-6
- 31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said,
- If you hold to my teaching,***
- you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
18 The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth
160 All your words are true; all your righteous laws***are eternal.
11 Teach me your way, LORD, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart****, that I may fear your name.
17 Sanctify*** them by the truth; your word is truth.
15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed*** and who correctly handles the word of truth.
2nd Tim 2:15
8 If we claim to be without sin,***we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.
Listen and obey EVERYTHING God says, his laws are RIGHTEOUS( it is possible to listen to ALL his laws) it will require loyalty to God through VERY hard trials, but he GIVES the most POWERFUL STRENGTH and Mercy to conquer the Evil ( we will never be perfect like Christ, but we NEED to strive towards it like a warrior, not being one who is lusting, lazy, lying, lowdown, two-timing, proud and self-pitied, moping about the situation they are in, not realizing how much wrong we have all done, so it’s what we get; so better to get up now and fight now, start the process of overcoming it now, LISTEN to God now, before it eats you alive. And it will mean this feeling of freedom now, self-confidence, God having your back Deut 31:6, and a life that never ends ((The real fountain of Youth will be a gift from God). EXTREMELY soon to come.
God I know, there will always be someone that tries to break your sheep, you do everything right, they hate you, and if you do everything wrong they pick at you, but for that reason I pray give those that want to listen to you, the Faith to endure and where faith falls short, the wisdom, to overcome the hate of this world. Amen.
Love is the desire & need of every soul♥️.
Care and provision the Task & Difficulty of every week🌮🍞🍗
Struggles with Life’s intricate daily details always a difficult Song to embrace.🎼Family & Friends try Their Best.
Alas! Only One Thing is certain,
The Love of God
Stays the Same
Thank you God!
“Oh no, no. I don’t do that church thing.”
“Well you can’t know God, cause his name is not Jehovah.”
“God is not real. DON’t come back again!!”
“You believe in some false Gospel, you can’t know God.”
“Well right in this scripture it says this [ ..]but you believe [..]it’s not the real truth.”
“Ha! Where is your God, you have nothing to show for in life.”
“The concept of mitochondrial RNA interactions spontaneously and gradually inducing all the life forms in every variation and uniqueness is so much more majestic than the thought that there is some God up there that cares and has a better plan than this hopeless life.”
LET’S PLEASE STOP…RIGHT THERE! Big red octagon! 🛑 Stop!
Do you really think that God is so heartless that if you don’t call him by a name that you know forsure is his official name, it’s over for you?
I hope you just said no to that question. If you said yes, go take a shower and grab a Snickers.
Do you really think that if you don’t perfectly interpret all that is written in the Bible, you are DOOMED! No. You’re not. 🙂
It’s ok… it’s gonna be ok, breathe, and let me tell you something… when you really want to know God, you really start to WANT to ‘Captivate all your thoughts in Christ’ ,you start to WANT to do EVERYTHING God says, and when you do EVERYTHING he says, he inspires wisdom within you to understand more. His Holy Spirit starts to give you actual POWER to understand and discern accurately without even having to be told by another human via sermon, or bible study, or self-help book, etc.
God is not cruel, he made commandments that we are CAPABLE of listening to and following, a loving God would NOT make rules impossible to follow, it IS POSSIBLE TO LISTEN TO ALL OF HIS COMMANDMENTS, and it SAVES YOUR LIFE, even now in day to day fiery and scary situations.
Listen though, he knows we are imperfect, and it is our characteristics/certain personality traits, that will NEVER be perfect. Although we can get closer and closer to becoming like Christ, we will never be perfect, that’s also where Christ’s ransom pays for our sins.
So Isaiah Chapter 5 the common scripture debated on whether God’s name is Jehovah or Jesus.
I mean it says: ‘he will be called’… [ Open Isaiah 9], because: *many will call him by such.
God keeps things open for loving conversation/ makes scriptures somewhat ambiguous intentionally to keep EVERYONE ALL OVER THE WORLD,( whether you can’t do church, you don’t believe in God, or you believe in the Trinity, or Allah, or even Buddha..etc etc) CONNECTED. He made us all, ALL OF US, whether we like it or not, God formed all of us. Psalm139:16: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Your eyes [ God’s eyes] saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
Psalm 119:73, ‘God You made me; you created me. Now give me the sense to follow your commands⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We ALL have a unique and important purpose, God hopes you choose to ‘be wise my son, and make my heart rejoice’ ( Proverbs 27:11)
…in that He may make a reply to him [Satan] that taunts [Him], essentially God is saying: make me proud my child.
So that scripture in Isaiah 9, is the perfect example of all of God’s created people, every single person here right now, with differences coming together, whether they know God as Christ or God as Jehovah, the point is not to try to make that the point… God must shake his head when we make such a huge deal out of something beyond the point.
THE POINT IS: Love conquers all. As long as we hold tight onto that cord: the way in which we somehow found God( whatever way that was). We should never let that ‘cord’ so to speak, be cut, but keep pulling ourself closer and closer to God, and support one another despite our differences, knowing we all have a common goal in this crazy maze, to get closer to God and become stronger in him, this is what matters.
The Song of the Vineyard
5 I will sing for the one I love
a song about his vineyard:
My loved one had a vineyard
on a fertile hillside.
2 He dug it up and cleared it of stones
and planted it with the choicest vines.
He built a watchtower in it
and cut out a winepress as well.
Then he looked for a crop of good grapes,
but it yielded only bad fruit.
3 “Now you dwellers in Jerusalem and people of Judah,
judge between me and my vineyard.
4 What more could have been done for my vineyard
than I have done for it?
When I looked for good grapes,
why did it yield only bad?
5 Now I will tell you
what I am going to do to my vineyard:
I will take away its hedge,
and it will be destroyed;
I will break down its wall,
and it will be trampled.
6 I will make it a wasteland,
neither pruned nor cultivated,
and briers and thorns will grow there.
I will command the clouds
not to rain on it.”
7 The vineyard of the LordAlmighty
is the nation of Israel,
and the people of Judah
are the vines he delighted in.
And he looked for justice, but saw bloodshed;
for righteousness, but heard cries of distress.
Woes and Judgments
8 Woe to you who add house to house
and join field to field
till no space is left
and you live alone in the land.
9 The Lord Almighty has declared in my hearing:
“Surely the great houses will become desolate,
the fine mansions left without occupants.
10 A ten-acre vineyard will produce only a bath[a] of wine;
a homer[b] of seed will yield only an ephah[c] of grain.”
11 Woe to those who rise early in the morning
to run after their drinks,
who stay up late at night
till they are inflamed with wine.
12 They have harps and lyres at their banquets,
pipes and timbrels and wine,
but they have no regard for the deeds of the Lord,
no respect for the work of his hands.
13 Therefore my people will go into exile
for lack of understanding;
those of high rank will die of hunger
and the common people will be parched with thirst.
14 Therefore Death expands its jaws,
opening wide its mouth;
into it will descend their nobles and masses
with all their brawlers and revelers.
15 So people will be brought low
and everyone humbled,
the eyes of the arroganthumbled.
16 But the Lord Almighty will be exalted by his justice,
and the holy God will be proved holy by his righteous acts.
17 Then sheep will graze as in their own pasture;
lambs will feed[d] among the ruins of the rich.
18 Woe to those who draw sin along with cords of deceit,
and wickedness as with cart ropes,
19 to those who say, “Let God hurry;
let him hasten his work
so we may see it.
The plan of the Holy One of Israel—
let it approach, let it come into view,
so we may know it.”
20 Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.
21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
and clever in their own sight.
22 Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine
and champions at mixing drinks,
23 who acquit the guilty for a bribe,
but deny justice to the innocent.
24 Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw
and as dry grass sinks down in the flames,
so their roots will decay
and their flowers blow away like dust;
for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty
and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore the Lord’s angerburns against his people;
his hand is raised and he strikes them down.
The mountains shake,
and the dead bodies are like refuse in the streets.
Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away,
his hand is still upraised.
26 He lifts up a banner for the distant nations,
he whistles for those at the ends of the earth.
Here they come,
swiftly and speedily!
27 Not one of them grows tired or stumbles,
not one slumbers or sleeps;
not a belt is loosened at the waist,
not a sandal strap is broken.
28 Their arrows are sharp,
all their bows are strung;
their horses’ hooves seem like flint,
their chariot wheels like a whirlwind.
29 Their roar is like that of the lion,
they roar like young lions;
they growl as they seize their prey
and carry it off with no one to rescue.
30 In that day they will roar over it
like the roaring of the sea.
And if one looks at the land,
there is only darkness and distress;
even the sun will be darkenedby clouds.
“See Beyond Trials”
‘Behind a frowning providence,
He hides a smiling Face’ 
To see beyond Loves’ purposes
Is sure too Err.
To Trust Him simply
Oh the relief.
Peace and True calmness
Are found in His Arms of Love.
For He has Spoken.
All shall surely come to Pass. Has God ever failed
In all His Faithful Plans,
Nay! It is impossible;
For Holy is the LORD.
And His Word is forevermore Sure.
See what God can Do
For those who Call on His name.
Inexhaustible in Glory,
Beautiful and Powerful,
Meek and Lowly.
Oh what a Friend!
Tethered by Faith
Is my hearts’ Goal & End!
Until i shall see His Face
And Faith have Prevailed
For I have Finished the Race
To Behold Him forevermore!
God NEEDS you to know this:

Thank you heavenly dad, God above..
Love heals all.. For Husbands and Wives in particular: Ephesians 5:22-33, marriage will put you through tests of every kind: mentally, physically, emotionally, psychologically, subliminally, subconsciously.
Wives “must live in subjection to their husbands,” this means they must respect them, not take a horrid beating, never this, but ladies try to change your perspective for the moment, to that of a man’s, to see what they see ( their brain does indeed function very differently than a woman’s).
When at first what they say, makes you wanna throw the refrigerator at them, and anger from “The AUDACITY of This MAN?!?” actually gives you the strength to do so; or if contrarily, what they say causes you to lose all hope, and feel completely without worth: assess whether what they have said, is even relevant and legitimate. Or is it just nonsensical words they heard from a movie or a bad association, or even more seriously is it a test…
Satan using your man’s mouth to direct things at you that are blatantly untrue. You MUST MUST MUST read God’s word the Bible at every moment of stress that arises and pray constantly in your mind to prepare for what Satan may try to throw at you.
READ THE BIBLE, God did not create us to be independent of him, WE MUST READ THE BIBLE! TO handle any kind of stress, depression, self-denial, struggle, resentment, fear, guilt, etc. God’s WORD IS THE ONLY WAY.
Reasoning from God’s word and choosing not to even submit and join in on any irrelevant fiery conversation, will keep a woman strong knowing God made her for good, built beautiful and brave, and he is always there, even when no one else seems to be.
During A Fight, COUPLES:
Recognize Falseness/Nonsense ( OR ANY TEST in general, especially if it is reoccurring, never go down the same path of destruction that only continuously causes chaos; if cooking rice always starts a fight, find out why, don’t just keep cooking rice and fighting)
2. Say Nothing negative/accusatory; self-control/silence WITH prayer and Bible reading is All Powerful everytime, in the fight. Too many Words are Unnecessary at that point, and only add fuel to the Fire (until after cool down and God’s Word is with you should you speak with in depth communication, ask questions, give suggestion, hear out their side, be loving with self-control) Listen and LOVE each other, no matter what differences or struggles exist, listen (hear each other’s true heart) and love.
3. Go to a peaceful Place alone and Breathe, PRAY( never, NEVER, I REPEAT NEVER, underestimate the power behind prayer)
4. Think of Funny Times/ Good Memories, and Hope ahead.
5. Pick up the Bible and Read it Together
6. After the battle has been won, leave the Fight way Behind You, Forever!
Additionally never compare your spouse to that of individuals in movies, songs, TV shows, or even coworkers, or the cute fool from down the road or even a friend.
Of course when a star, or stranger is dressed for a show, their behavior is show-like, or more cool and collective, not raw, if they haven’t been with you when for example, you:
“Wake up extra greasy with ferocious dragon breath, and decide your day has been way too long at 6am and you are never gonna take a shower, EVER, and want chocolate, but hate chocolate five minutes later and suddenly have energy to mow the lawn in whitey tighties, but Eleanore drove by on her souped up walker with the golden tennis balls and whistled at your butt”
so things are about to hit the fan with your honey.. then Brad Paisley or Carly Ray, or “Stacy’s mom who’s got it goin on”.. is human too, and they aint gonna deal with your nit wits , any more so than that special someone you made vows too, not even not at all when life gets real.
Husbands, while your wife is to respect you and love you, as difficult as that may seem for her in a fiery fight, but very possible that that is, your job is to love your woman and Your woman only, not other defilements of flesh, alcohol, bad images, too much television or phone time, obsessing about money, etc etc..these things will suck your soul dry every day till you take your last breath, leaving you wishing you could have just one more chance with your honey.
Cherish her like you love and take care of yourself, and your life will be heaven on Earth. Women are complex, but when it boils down to it, all they need is love ( especially the ferocious ones). Be LOYAL to each other and God, you will see, will make you inconquerable as couple and individually, you will feel insurmountable strength straight from the Almighty.
Never leave your partner behind. As clay made in the hands of Jehovah God, designed for each other, why would you not choose the STRONGEST WEAPON out there to go into battle with, prayer& Jehovah God’s Word! And LOVE, do NOT Repay evil for evil, only with good can evil be conquered.
Food is of more value than money, and God of more value than Food.
Try having fuzzy teeth without being able to brush and smelling like death, with horribly uncomfortable hair, shivering and being told you cannot sleep here at 4am with your eyes half alive and your head so hungry for sleep.
Humans look at other humans needing help, that they know deep down that they could offer, like they are pieces of broken tires on the road, nowadays.
Our God given trusts and tests whether it be money, or the ability to preach, or a beautiful heart, a sensitive soul, or a way with people, or a way with flowers, should be used for good, not selfishly or not gone to waste.1st Peter 4:10
Bring back the love, even if you only offer an encouraging word, that GIVES, life.
1st Corinthians 13:4
Everyone will always see themselves as less fortunate than someone else, but will you get chained and stuck chasing the imminently annihilated dust that Satan has to offer today.
James 4:4, 2Cor4:18, Phil 3:7, Romans 14:10, Proverbs 13:7
We never have enough if we compare ourselves to someone else, but God is all you need and he will add all else that he knows you need.
And it is going to save your life if you wake up now to realize that we are blind to what REALLY matters, staying close to God before it is too late, Earth is a temporary home( Satan has REALLY blinded us all to think we really really need nicer homes, hotter cars, better clothes, cuter shoes, awesome phones; be careful you could get stuck on the third level of [deep sin] and get forever lost in such a “viral idea” ( That’s what the movie “Inception” really is, God inspires all things meant for good, he surely does, our creator is THE ULTIMATE GENIUS).
If your house caught on fire right now, what would you save from the midst of the smoke and it’s mercilessly collapsing walls?
Our permanent home is paradise or/heaven once the evil gets wiped out, Earth is where we get tested to Earn our real prize in God’s coming, perfect kingdom. And it IS coming, check-out the news lately?
Things will get way worse before they get better, then heavenly.
Read read read read read your Bible and pray and pray pray and pray, God does talk back through his Word.
When the scaled talons of a starving beast tear up the ground in vicious aggravation, when the Terrible Jurassic Lizard thunders the earth, when the Leviathon blunders frightening happenings in the unshadowed depths, and the echoing far off, of chilling cackling of evil demons and jackals, curdles your blood in fear, and trembles the lights of your soul, where do you stand? Do you fear? Well who wouldn’t. Has it ever really, I mean really, DON’T SKIM, This is SERIOUS.. has it hit you, is it hitting you now, take this in: that everything hateful, evil, angry, bitter, greedy, rude, and selfish, immoral, and defiling is a battlefield, your opponents and their leader of this Enemy is the Hate of Satan, NOT God. Hate through Satan is the Enemy, and he is supremely skilled in cruel craftiness.
Satan is skilled in cruel craftiness to a degree that is enough to trick both the gullible and the wise into many devastating traps. We must seek unshakable wisdom from God( READ THE BIBLE).
God is good, God is Love. All this evil he can pinch into annhilation.
Why do we curse God, who is stronger than anything, and does not hurt us should we do as he says, and side note: what he says is actually very good for you and feels awesome to do once you get over that “I don’t have to listen anything my dad says stage, he just wants to ruin my life.”
Jehovah God is our heavenly Father (: Yaweh ( Hebrew for Jehovah) he gave us his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, the Messiah.
To let your baby be taken from your arms, that is the most painful thing ever! Ever!
God let his baby, his only son, be given for a greater good, to show us how much patience and compassion dwells inside his warmest heart, hoping all of his kids just listen to him, so they can survive and stay on the right path.
That made it an act of GREAT Love, The Greatest form of Power(LOVE). ; for us to have a chance at hope, greater happiness, and more peace. We must not be so self-centered and show no appreciation or no effort to listen to ALL of his instructions in his Word.
As parents you wouldn’t tell a tantrum- throwing toddler, here’s a lollipop and some cupcakes and some new toys.
Loving discipline is necessary, even for us as God’s kids. But when we make loving rules within boundaries of God’s perfect reasoning, we get frustrated as parents too when our kids break them( so does God).
illustration: for goodness sakes Petunia, stop smoking cigarettes then your house wouldn’t be on fire and your lungs not full of cancer, please throw that stuff away, Satan get away from her, *Angels sent out* *prayers heard from loved ones* God’s heart breaking and hoping Petunia gets out of both fires, “You Got this Petunia!” “Just talk to me, so I can answer you, you aren’t paying attention to that angel I just sent to you.”
Anyone can handle anger with anger, it is so easy to do. But it takes a real sheep to show patience and love. ( You WILL NEED GOD TO STAY STRONG: pray and READ YOUR BIBLE.) IT HAS POWER!! It is Alive, sharper than any two-edged sword, WE NEED IT!
Key to communicating more effectively: Attack your problems, Not people. Be constructive, speak of loving probable solutions to problems, not more problems and low emotions.
Break that angry cycle, no more anger with anger, Don’t Blame anyone( Love does Not blame 1st Cor13:4, and One who does not Love, does Not truly know God
( 1st John 4:8), nor anything.. identify that HATE through Satan is the enemy, not your friends, loved ones, nor random individuals. God does not cause worry, fear, confusion, hatred, jealousy, desire for revenge through materials or actions.
God is Love. Join the battle against the real enemy, HATE, with the undefeatable power of Love. God will prevail. There is no other way.
Everyone, every single one of us, was made for a unique reason..
Satan knows Jehovah is most powerful, he did not choose to test his power when telling the first lie in the garden of Eden, that man could be like God. Satan desired to test God’s rulership. Like a rebel student will test a qualified teacher, the only way for a teacher to show they alone are qualified to be teacher, and not the student, is not to kick the rebel out of class, ( that would leave many questions concerning the teacher’s abilities and qualifications to the whole class, should the teacher do that), but give that rebel a chance to show ” his way is better,” the ruler of this world is Satan, God gave him a chance to show ” his way is better, ” but no human leader can fulfill what only God is capable of, we need God to direct our each step, as we are imperfect and sinners. Look around you, the suffering, the violence, the hatred, the cruelty, dishonesty, selfishness, starvation, and war, is the result of Satan’s rebelliousness. Only a kingdom ruled by God’s son now reigning King of the heavens Christ Jesus ( and soon on Earth) will prove to be what it was originally intended to be, a paradise on Earth. – Jw.org (Rev 21:4) There is hope.
You ever wake up so bloody raving mad and discombobulated, people look at you like “Woah, try going to back to sleep, and wake up on the right side of the bed! Please!”
TO YOU, you are as innocent as a fluffy dazzling unicorn straight out of the claw machine from the penny arcade.
But what is going on, why does it appear the world is so against you, you just dropped your coffee all over your car and your tire flew off and broke the window to the Verizon store that still wants you to pay for looking hideous, with the magical gold that appears everytime you eat Lucky Charms breakfast cereal.
Well, let’s just say sin isn’t only the Ten Commandments. God is love. He does not cause harm or any bad to happen, but if you live out of love, God can allow it, Not cause, just allow, God is LOVE 1st John 4:8, and he is holy Isaiah 6:3 (This means he has absolutely no trace of badness in his nature). This world’s ruler currently is Satan) Very bad, awfully nasty things can happen on the grounds that belong to Satan the deceiver( you better believe he is real, Hollywood is NOT the originator of this Devil/Angel concept. It is Very Real, just look around you, madness, chaos, confusion, ignorance, selfishness, hate, yep it is Satan.
Were you hating on, jealous of, scheming about, clenching your fists in a grudge upon, plotting revenge against the so and so, that you allow to boil your blood?
Well then enjoy being a boiled up meal in the jaws of the devil and demons, the pain and suffering will be unbearable, if your heart is meant to belong to Jehovah God, yet you keep entering Satan’s territory.
Everything in life will seem to pop more into place so satisfyingly like that jigsaw puzzle piece you’ve been searching for strenuously, and finally find, once you realize life CANNOT be done without God, no drugs no alcohol, no immoral conduct, no partying will ever satisfy you and give you full strength like God… Following God and drawing closer to him, life is still a journey, and will have trials no matter what in this battlefield, until the battle has completely been won by Jehovah God and his son Appointed as King of the heavens, Jesus Christ.
On this journey we will sew what we reap in everything, steal, and don’t be surprised to find you are being stolen from 5 years later, hurt someone intentionally, don’t look shocked when it likewise happens to you too eventually.
With that said there will be trials and triumphs, the closer we draw to God, thru Christ, the more we live with love and imitate his qualities, the more things in life will “pop into place” Isaiah 48:18, being that we grow incredibly wiser and stronger, through God alone. Nonetheless the road to salvation is narrow, so until all evil is destroyed, the only way to get through this spiritual warzone is to come to know God John 17:3 for this means everlasting life.
Through this all, never judge others in criticism, God is not partial, he knows the hearts of his people, and people grow, and can even grow in great progress in even just a day, thus real forgiveness and understanding should always be manifest through everyone’s journey of learning and growing, in this gift called life. 1 Cor 8:11
Psalm 32:1( Don’t have guilt, it’s forgiven)
1st John 4:8 Love conquers all
Job 5:2 ( Don’t hate, don’t replay bad things again and again in your head)
Depressed, angry, on a rampage, hurt, in pain, feeling cheated, feeling abused, feeling guilty, feeling low, feeling scared, feeling unappeasable, feeling trapped or in a weird confusing stage..
READ THE BIBLE.
Open to Psalms/ Proverbs if you don’t know where else to start
Your armour is on and fully equipped for battle, blazingly shiny and unmarred of any one scratch, the strategy you select is crucial to survival…
the dragon thunders forth ready to envelop you as his meal, his teeth seething with starvation, and his claws delved into the ground, pulling up the foundation from beneath his merciless claws with his every rampage closer to you, eyes bulging as he stands but a foot from you in distance, and you, unready, weapons just for showy display, throw down all defenses in cowardice, onto the ground, as you run, screaming, away from the dragon, yelling that you were not ready for the battle, telling the dragon to please come back later.
This life of ours will throw so many battles at us. How we face them, learn from them, and even rejoice in them is how we will grow. If we never use the armour of God, and hide from conquering what scares us, lie to ourselves about things that need change and growth, and deny God the ability to do his divine work in our lives, we will be like the individual who runs from the dragon in the beginning here.
Trials, hardships, frustrations, worries, suffering, difficulties, all have a remedy, and that is God. Getting through all the things that seem completely impossible to conquer, may take time, preserverance again and again, passing seemingly endless tests that Satan may tempt you with, and never losing hope, that God is all powerful, and in his timing which is perfect, and only he knows why, even if we may never understand, he can conquer all. With him we will always be victorious.
