There is a big list of things I believe. But what is more important than that is what is true. I believe the Bible is true. I believe God is truth and He wrote everything we need to know in the Bible. I believe it is difinitive and unapologetic and stands and defends itself unquestionably and is our greatest tool for life, instruction, correction and battle (defense and offence). Thus, I believe every word in it is correct and true and gives us everything we need for salvation and eternal life with God in heaven through the saving power of Jesus Christ, the true Messiah and only means of salvation from sin and evil. I believe prayer, faith and contrition bring us to direct audience with Almighty God who loves us and wants to have a personal relationship with us. And that is it. I used to have many opinions, but God has lined them up with His truth, thanks and praise be to God!!! His is the opinion which matters because it n is true and perfect and holy. Praise God Almighty!!! Praise my Heavenly Father, Maker of heaven and earth and all that we see or know! May His name be lifted up! May His light cut through the darkness! May His truth set us all free! May those He made love Him and choose salvation! ❤❤❤
When we stay close to the Lord, He stays close to us. When we have humble souls before Him (giving Him the proper respect as God) and worship and obey Him, let me tell you He blesses. He doesn’t control other people (that whole free will thing) so we will always have troubles until heaven, but He promises to stay with us and reward our efforts for Him and love and support us all the while. God always keeps His promises, and one very cool thing about Him is that for every command in the Bible, He also right after gives one promise/blessing that corresponds. Every one. I dare you to look. And He is truth so is good on His word!! You cannot count on people- any person will and can let you down or break a promise. But God never lies, changes His mind, breaks His promises, falls asleep on the job, fails you, is unfaithful or untrue to His word. Ever. You can rest with peace and joy in God and know your energy is well placed and perfectly poised. You can never go wrong with God. He is probably the only One you can ever say that about. If God is asleep only you have, God is all you need. That is so true. ❤❤❤
Ready for what? People are fixated on preparedness for disasters, war, bad water, terrorist attacks, but all that is very temporary. Important in the temporary but temporary nonetheless. I believe it is much more important to be ready for the eternal, that which can only be determined by your free will during this temporary life. Jesus is Coming soon. That has been dumbed down so much, mocked, sounding like craziness and accepted as a sign of craziness by society at whole. “People have said it for years”, “It hasn’t happened and won’t happen”, “Will it happen at all?” Questions like these have been said to me. My answer is the same. The Bible says it will happen and it only speaks truth so it will happen. When? “No one knows the day or the hour”, “It will come like a thief in the night.” That tells me no one knows. So if people claim to know, that is very dangerous because only God knows and them they are claiming to be Him and I would night ot want to be them. I do know it could be today or years from now but we are very safe to be ready and stay focused on God, the Eternal One now. I have are saying on my fridge from a missionary friend, “Jesus is coming today… unless He doesn’t”. My friends, is eternity something to be taken lightly? Not to me. I cannot wait to spend forever with my loving God and this time without sin and evil around. Wow, can you imagine??? ❤
Having faith is easy when nothing challenges it or presses in. To keep the faith in the stress of persecution or evil or ugliness or abuse, which liberals are much more widely heaping on the rest of us who do not agree with their views, is challenging. But we are warned that being a follower of Jesus Christ means being treated how they treated Him. Evil hates the light. It always has and always will. Thank God for our good President who holds freedom dear. And may those who oppose him be punished to the full extent of the law. But I digress, and use that example as one where prayer is our weapon against infringements on our faith. Prayer is our greatest tool because it humbles us and calls on our powerful and superior God to intervene and help. Also it changes your mood. Humble prayer elicits worship for you can not come before the throne of our powerful, loving God and not worship and praise. It is impossible. And worship and relationship with Him puts things in their proper perspective. Joy and peace rush in. You sing, you dance. It becomes clearer that God already won the war and oh yeah, I trust Him with all this. No worries. Faith kept. The second tool is truth. The Bible is the only truth. Know it, read it, love it. Bible is truth and truth is power because God is truth. Faith kept. Can’t fool or distract me because I am grounded in the truth and in constant prayer. Faith kept. I love you! ❤
It is a shame whenever I hear of some people feeling alone or friendless. We never are alone and we are never friendless. That is a lie of the enemy. That is their M.O., what they do, all they do. Enemies lie because they want us dead or defeated otherwise. The truth of the matter is that anytime we humbly ask for it, we have a loving (and incredibly powerful) friend in Jesus Christ. God is always everywhere and with us always and will let us feel that when we humbly ask Him to and draw close to Him. He absolutely loves us and we are saved through Jesus’ sacrifice and nd resurrection. My daughter asked me to draw Jesus on the cross and I never will because He is not there. I serve a risen Lord. He is interceding on our behalf in heaven right now, on a throne in glory and power and love. We are still under His grace until He returns. Stay in His grace is my greatest advice. He is our friend. In fact, He us the greatest friend to those who are friendless, those alone, those suffering. His heart breaks and He is more present for them, more eager to be called upon and wanted. You are never alone or friendless. I am never alone or friendless. Reach out to Jesus. Hold on tight. If Jesus is andll you have, you have the best of anything or anyone you could ever possibly need or want. Jesus us the lover of my soul and my heart is full because of His love. Never friendless. Never alone. If you feel that way, it is your pride and the enemy’s lies you are fostering. Truth is this. You are never ever alone or friendless when you humbly pray to Jesus and draw close to Him. He is hoping you will. He died and rose to get that chance.
First off, I don’t believe we should ever just let anyone kill us. I believe people are brainwashed by their society and governmental leaders who wish you control them into the hate and condemnation and death religion of Islam in disguise as a religion of peace. Allah is actually a different god not the almighty in disguise who wants to destroy and uses hate and fear and intimidation to rule. However, and here it is, God made and loves dearly every single person of every single religion in the world. He lovingly made everyone on purpose. And God is loving and forgiving. In God, there is no condemnation at all for anyone who accepts Jesus Christ as Savior. I love all people and want everyone saved, just like God does. No one is without hope of complete forgiveness of sin, loving relationship with God, hope of secure eternal life in Heaven and choice. No one is without a choice in their heart. Ask Jesus if He is real to speak to you and He will in a dream or vision or through a person. He is real and loving and ready to love and forgive unconditionally and adopt you as sons and daughters. You and so very loved! This is true for everyone! ❤
I have few fears in life. I used to say I was fearless, which is close to the whole true story, but I fear the Lord and fear people within my reach not fearing the Lord. So I do have a me fears. I know God loves us all, made us all special, but He gave us all free will to choose Him or the other guy and we can be pretty short sighted sometimes and those consequences are real and frightening. But I digress and have only those two fears. The reason I don’t have more or worry like many (I wrote a book “Worry Crashers” on Amazon Kindle books that goes into more depth) is because one of my spiritual gifts is faith. This is why I am am doctor, a healer, and why I heal people sometimes inadvertantly, often purposefully. I can only do that because I have faith, believing what God says in His Word the Bible and trusting that God only tells us the truth. I believe what He says, even if I can’t see it. I trust Him like a kid trusts their honest parent. As such, I know He heals and is the Great Physician. As such, He always can heal anyone of anything. He can even raise the dead or make a brand new person, for heaven’s sake. I even have faith that if He chooses not to, there is a better reason for it. And tucked away in my faith are His promises in the Bible. He never ever gives us a command or rule without giving a corresponding promise with it. Test me on that. Every command has a promise that comes true when you obey it. “Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord” is immediately followed with the promise “and He will give you strength.” “Honor your father and mother and it will go well with you.” “Be strong and courageous and I will fight for you.” “Tithe and see if I do not provide what you need.” So many instances of every command having a subsequent promise. These promises are like our assurrance, our roots that hold us to the truth that there are reasons God tells us stuff. God says what He means out of love, for our benefit. My faith grows as I test Him and He delivers. I obey and bam! He delivers on His promise. It is like clockwork, you can count on Him. He is not off golfing on some distant planet, He is here answering prayers, keeping promises, living and active and in love with us, wanting all of us to be saved. So humbling and ao faithful. He is one of the few who is. It melts the heart. ❤
