The Key to Not Be Devisive

I heard a great quote that I want to take further. He quote was from a guy on YouTube who said this:

“Just because we have different viewpoints doesn’t mean we have to hate each other.”

And I want to tell you the key to executing that mindset, because it is a necessary one for any group of people living in the same family, country, workplace, earth. Here is the secret key: Ready? Wait for it…

Care more about God then yourself and other people as much as yourself.

It is that simple. Really? Yep. It is the heart of the matter, pun intended. If we simply follow these 10 commandments, reduced down to two, with a humility and the fruits of the Spirit, the world would be flipped upside down, or actually would be made right.

A difference of opinion would not induce hatred but maybe a conversation or acceptance of a different viewpoint.

Families would be stronger, as each would love God first and foremost and want to please Him and then would love each other as much as themselves so nothing would be done for self that harms another but instead each would support and encourage each other.

Words and actions would be done from love and not from hate or its counterparts greed or envy or folly or self-interest etc. Love views things quite differently, sacrificially even.

Ah, just thinking of God’s original design is wonderful. We can help by adopting such a world and heart view and implementing it. And if enough of us do this, wow!😄❤

This is the power of the church family united in prayer.❤

Fasting Prayers

I will be praying and fasting tomorrow (on Wednesdays). I implore any of you friends who really love the Lord to join me. And if you cannot fast for some reason, please pray with me during meal times. So we are on the same page, my prayers will be:

1. Please purify my soul and my family’s soul and wash us clean by the blood of the Lamb Jesus Christ. Please forgive our sins and renew our strength and purity with the Holy Spirit so we may be in your presence and pray and fast today.

2. The Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6), with emphasis on “Please, dear Lord, may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

3. Please may God’s prayer warriors be strengthened and focused to pray and fast for your good to triumph over the enemies’ evil.

4. Please protect and strengthen our President Trump and all those officials doing good and may those who have done evil to be caught and prosecuted and be found guilty and punished to the fullest extent of the law. Please allow this to change their hearts to repentance and salvation.

5. Please help our country defund and abolish abortion and injustice so you will forgive and bless our country as a whole.

6. Please allow people to be released from their addictions to tech and social media/phones and pleasure addictions which have become their idols. Please release and help them so they are ready when you come soon for your church.

7. Please purify your church and strengthen her to prayer and fasting and worship together. Destroy the evil within her and cast out demons who have infiltrated. Help your church to remember her job of missions, winning souls for your kingdom, worshipping You. Please help and bless Your persecuted church around the world.

8. Please save as many as you can from the clutches of Satan and soften their hearts to Jesus Christ as their Lord for their eternal soul’s sake.

9. Please strengthen and heal my friends and family for prayer and prepare their hearts and souls for your coming.

10. Please keep the demons and evil ones who have chosen to worship them from being effective in the evil they want to do. Stop their plans, dear Lord, and protect us. May all the evil plans come to ruin and be hindered and useless and may You, Lord, and Your angels win every battle.

11. We love and pray for Israel. We pray for her peace and that the Jews will realize that Jesus is their Messiah and be saved. Praise be the God of Israel. Please bless her.

12. We worship you, dear Jesus. We give you praise, honor due you and adore your glory. You are worthy of all our love and adoration and worship. You are holy and true.

In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.❤❤❤

Why Go To Church?

There are reasons to go and reasons to go. Why go to church? Because we are told to by God in His Word (Hebrews 10:24-25). Also, we have thr example in many places where the church is together, meaning an example for us to follow (two are Acts 14:27 & 15:30) and also there are several verses on the importance of coming together as a church (1 Corinthians 12:24 and 14:26). And if you search for yourself, you will see quickly that it is God’s design.

Now, I believe most churches are not right in the Word. If a church is corrupt, it needs to be amended or left to find a true church. God is very clear as to what a church is supposed to be like, as in the kingdom of God where followers/believers in Jesus meet together to have communion, worship, pray, read the Bible, encourage each other and help each other. That is pretty much it. Simple and beautiful.

Never does it say we must fight to stay awake during one man’s narcissistic rant or speech for an hour, never is a building program involved, no exorbitant salaries are declared as part of it, and there are checks and balances in place to keep people focused on God and His Word (elders, deacons, etc.). And the people of the church should be loving and encouraging and real and absolutely not judgmental or abusing their position or finances. And the mission of the church is always growth and outreach naturally to save souls. Again, simple.

And that is the truth of church I have gleaned from Scripture, the only source of truth we have.

To not go is to disobey the Word. It is just that simple. Many Bible and Jesus-focused churches exist around you and if none are, start your own in your home like the early church did. That is just as much church as a fancy building. But church is mandatory.❤

One For All and All For One

The three musketeers were strong because they supported each other and abided by the motto “one for all and all for one”. The Biblical principle is that “a cord of three strands is not quickly broken”. The American nation was founded on the principle that “united we stand, divided we fall”. When did we become so blinded to these principles to listen to distractions and accept divisive tactics? I have nothing against anyone until they try to divide us and go against God’s original plan for us. I will not betray God. I will not accept divisive tactics. I will fight against evil cowards who want to destroy us or my faith in God. We all must stand. United we stand.❤

We Rocked Today

There is little that is more completely exhilarating than a family team project where everyone works together on a project and accomplishes something bigger. Today, we did that and the results are beautiful and will last. Even if the rocks give way over time, we have that unified bonding memory together. It is beautiful! God is so very good!!❤

Truth of Stereotypes, Categorizations & Cliches

Every single person is unique. Every person was made uniquely by God out of love and careful thought. There is no love in judging people as being the same as everyone who is female or male or brown or peachish-tan or young or old or anything. For every woman who likes to shop and buys shoes like they breathe, I can show you a woman who works hard for her family and has three pairs of shoes (I am one of those). For every brown person who loves vulgar lyric rap songs, I can show you one who appreciates the sophistication of classical and jazz. For every man who thinks women were made to be their worshipping slaves, I can show you one who respects and teams with his wife. For every half-dead somber church member, I can show you a flaming charasmatic one. What I am saying is that the only true stereotypes or categorizations or cliches concerning people groups is that they are all ignorant constructs based on faulty or inadequate evidence to back them up. They are basically lies that foster division. And we must educate ourselves and work as a team as we were designed to do. Get over the propoganda and discover for yourself. I will be happy to introduce you to some people who would blow your mind, they are so very different than what people think by looking at them. All my patients are so stinking unique and amazing! I am too. So are you. So is evrrybody, that is the point. We were all designed by a loving God uniquely and on purpose and no person should ever be put into a stereotyping, cliche- driven category. It is demeaning and demoralizing and shows great disrespect for our Creator. Thank God we andre all unique and praise God He is so clever to give us all a mind to think for ourselves. Be you! ❤
