All of us who follow Jesus and draw closer to God every day are tired. We are still fighting the fight but the air is thick with spiritual/demonic activity and darkness. There is still nature where it is not but everywhere people are, there are spiritual attacks, illnesses, difficulties, financial issues, lust issues, greed, malicious words, lack of truth, whatever the case may be. It is thick. The spiritual war is hot and heavy and it is exhausting, even when you give everything to God for Him to handle. Families are being hit hard and even when we are right, we have sadness for those who are lost and refuse to listen. We know their fate and it is a burden of great magnitude. So we fight but we are tired. We need to delay rest until heaven (not far off now) and keep fighting, prating, reading our Bibles, loving people, telling only the truth in love, serving. We need to. We have to. Maybe one more will listen and be saved. Maybe we can encourage each other. Fighting tired is the reality but keep in your joy and peace and keep fighting. God bless you and your efforts.❤
Today, I went with my great aunt (a retired missionary to Chad, Africa and an orphanage in Haiti) and mom (missionaries’ daughter born and raised for 9 years in Lyberia, Africa) to a missionary ladies meeting. There are so many incredible missionary ladies, some retired but still serving where they are and some actively serving ladies. What incredible faith they have and such wonderful stories of how God provided for them and those they serve(d). It is beautiful. So, here we were learning about the current state of missions and the church’s support of missions is drying up. And moreso, very little support is ever spent on missions and church planting on American soil. Once missionaries come home from abroad, they Andre no longer being supported. And I see America as a country ripe for mission work. We have spiritual needs all over and need awakening in our churches and revitalization and truth spreading. And I am here encouraging you to pray for the cause of Christ and pray and support missionaries wherever God has sent them. If we all gave a little, there would be so much hope shared and lives would be changed and people saved and we would be able to say we helped. That would be awesome to stand before our Father with the report that we helped spread His truth throughput the world and to our neighbors! Oh what a beautiful gift that would be!!!❤❤❤
There is no such thing as an acceptable sin. Lying is an obvious sin unless you have bought it for so long and is now difficult to determine apart from the Truth of the Bible and Holy Spirit. Pornography is not acceptable because it is lust and therefore adultery (see Matthew 6) and it destroys the bond of marriage by bringing someone else into your mind and therefore bed. (And as at side note, it is sleazy and nasty too, and very foolish as you are committing adultery with a fantasy person, one who does not really exist, and it demean and dumb down real women and keeps you from coming to orgasm with your spouse who is trying desperately to love you and stay with you, selfish one.) Gossip is not acceptable and it is slander and a sin. Judging others is sin directly (also Matthew 6). Homosexuality is a sin as it is against God’s original design. Abortion is as sin as it is murder and a sin. Coveting what others have is a sin. Fornication (sex with someone you are not married to) is a sin. So many things are sins that people have talked themselves into believing are the truth because they want to do them. God sets rules up for our health, happiness and well being, not to ruin our fun but to give us lasting happiness and joy and blessings in life. A life lived purely is the best life we can have. It is truth. And the great news is that any sin at all may be forgiven by Jesus when He is asked into our hearts and saves us, washing us white as reread snow. God is so wonderful that He promises to forgive us and even forget it happened. Fresh start to turn away from that lifestyle of sin and lies and live happy with God awaiting eternity with Him! Praise God we can have His assurance of heaven!!!!❤❤❤
Really super long but a big picture insight on why the rapture and tribulation ate very near. The big picture is that evil is gaining ground and we need to hold to our faith no matter what and our eternity will be secure in Jesus Christ. God is still in untimate control. Hold on tight to Him and pray. God, the amazing One, the Lover of our souls, the Maker of everything we know of, the Great One is our Heavenly Father if we choose Him. We have to choose Him and stay close to Him. The reward is eternity with Him and His joy and peace and hope now. Pretty amazing reward, if you ask me. Worth everything. ❤❤❤
Jesus Christ is coming very soon to take His bride home. We who are saved by geace through the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God the Son, are faithful and are pure (washed clean by Jesus’ blood of sins) and ready to go (have served and worshipped God and are not in current sin or unforgiveness or worshipping other gods) will be caught up to heaven. People long ago have labeled this event the “rapture” or the “rapture of the church”. The Bible calls this the “catching away” or “catching up” of the bride, the true Christians (not Christians in name only but actual Christians, those with a personal relationship with God the Son, Jesus Christ, as Savior and Lord, followers of God the Father with God the Holy Spirit living in our hearts. And I am eager for that day. Also, I am more than happy to wait because I want as many to be saved as posaible. So does God. He loves everyone He has made. Really loves them. So do I. And so we keep working and serving and worshipping and doing the best we can. It is what we need to do to be prepared when we are gotten out of here. And hopefully, we will have tons and tons of company. Please pray and fast with me to that goal and keep serving and worahipping. We can rest in heaven (or won’t need to then). Don’t give up. Run the race with endurance, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…❤
Our holy, perfect, beautiful, loving God lives. He always has been. He always will be. He certainly can handle everything we have before us to face. God certainly deserves our worship and praise. God definitely is the only One who deserves anything good. Marketing agencies selling things based on people’s horrible inclination to pride and selfishness and “You deserve this” and “You deserve that” garbage have served only themselves at the risk of all of us by feeding everyone’s dangerously prideful ego and creating an atmosphere of entitlement rather than service. They will be punished. God is the only One who deserves anything good. We do not. Let me be clear and speak that truth again. Only God deserves all good things. That He chooses to generously share them with us is further proof of why He deserves good.
God loves us so much, and that amazes me. We who let Him down over and over He cherishes and keeps pouring love and grace out to us to win us over. God is trying so hard to get our attention to the urgency of things, the valuable importance of knowing that you are actively choosing either Him or the damned (quite literally) enemy and not choosing a side is in fact choosing the enemy. There is an urgency to call everyone choose to be saved by Jesus by calling on the name of Jesus for eternal salvation. It is imperitive that you do this now. We don’t know how much time we have left on this planet but it is not long…. could be seconds, years, minutes, hours. God only knows, don’t believe false prophets who say otherwise. God is everything. It is all about Him.
God made us lovingly on purpose for Himself, to tend to His world, to serve and worship Him. And now we decide whether to be with Him or to be separated from Him in torment and anguish forever. It is our own choice, not His… He wants us all and arranged salvation for anyone who humbly asks and call on the name of Jesus to be saved. Decide and put your energy into that decision. Read the Bible more and pray more and fast more if you are already saved and help save someone else. Time is short. I am not in the least privy to how short but the Holy Spirit living in my heart says it is short and He speaks truth.
Please know that you are deciding to be on the side of good or evil. You are deciding your eternal fate actively. God is not deciding, YOU are. He does not want anyone to go to hell. Hell was made for the fallen angels/demons who rebelled against Him and have caused so much harm and destruction to what He made and loves. But He won’t force you to love Him, He loves you too much for that. Know that you are actively deciding to accept or reject the God who made you in love every minute of every day. It is YOUR decision. Every moment of the day you decide again. Do not decide to be away from God when this world comes to a screeching halt, and it will. The train will stop and you will get off in eternity and face judgment. God will decide who goes to heaven or hell based on YOUR decision to be saved by JESUS, the only name we are saved by. And there is no excuse that you are “not religious” or “didn’t know”. God gives ample opportunity and your choice is informed and purposeful. You ARE religious, you worship something. Just because you choose to worship yourself or some addiction or idol or other God of a demon’s making or another person rather than God is really you saying “I don’t want anyone telling me what to do. I want to do what I want to do.” Not wanting to be bothered is still deciding you and your comfort are more important than God and Jesus’ sacrifice of dying so you can be saved if you humbly ask Him. It is still YOUR eternal decision to follow God or His enemy, good or bad, right or wrong. And not choosing IS choosing wrong. You always are actively choosing so please choose wisely.
This is a lot of truth but I must speak it boldly and bluntly for time is short and many will be lost or left behind if they do not humbly pray to accept Jesus as their Savior. He so longs for us to. Do it today while you can. Be saved. Get in His lifeboat. Get an eternal reservation in a heavenly mansion. You will be eternally glad you did!!! He loves you so much! I do too.❤❤❤
We all need to support American solidarity. We have a looming threat from North Korea, and the prevalent vicious attempt at division and distraction from mainstream tv, news and Hollywood owners/dictators. We have evil demons and principalities trying to kill as many of us as possible and divide and conquer. We used to be protected by God because we obeyed Him. Now many many Christians are comfortable, lethargic, lazy, sleeping, laxidasical, lukewarm and evil is gaining ground. This sickens me for I love our country. Our rights and freedoms are unprecedented and we need to be thankful and appreciative to God for this and serve and obey Him in return for these blessings and beg Him to restore and unite us, punish all evil, drain the seamp, and rebuild and restore. Christians need to wake up and pray and serve God. We need to unite and defy the evil billionaires who think they are in charge and punish them for their evil. We need to take back America for God and support our good President and his good staff. The riff raff in politics need to be vote out and they need to represent the people and not their own pocketbooks. Eternity and eternal judgment has no preference for worldly power or riches. That stuff dies here. Money is temporary. Power is temporary. God and eternity is forever. We need to work together for our souls and our country for God!!! Spread the word!❤
