We Have No King but JEHOVAH.......

Hello Brothers and Sisters...

 Psalms 118:8   It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

This verse is the very center of our Bible and "the LORD" is the very center of this verse.  He is the very center of ALL THINGS.  The very power of our GOD ALMIGHTY.  You see no matter what is happening in this very small world of ours called earth, there is only ONE who orchestrates it all.

There is a reason for everything that happens.  No man can save anyone.  We may have gotten a small reprieve for now, but without repentance and a turning away from sin in truth... turning to the LORD and His Righteousness it will be short lived. 

When we give our trust to/in man it is total rejection in/of our very Creator.  The ONE who rules and reigns from above.

 1 Samuel 8:7   And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
 1 Samuel 8:11-18   And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.  And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.
And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.
And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.
And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.
And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.
He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.
And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.

Has not this been the case thru out the history of man?  As man chooses to put their faith and trust in man there will never be any different result.  We have never had any King but GOD ALMIGHTY.

Man may have thought he had a different king,  man may have idolized and worshipped and adored another king but We have never had any King but GOD ALMIGHTY.

GOD has been very patient because of His love for man.  Waiting for His chosen to get it.

There is most assuredly a purpose and a path.  Unfortunately few will find it.  Will you find it??

There is GOD's Truth and then there is man's truth,  there is GOD's righteousness and then there is man's righteousness.  Which one will YOU trust and have faith in?  Your very life depends on this choice.

GOD has called many to Him.....will you answer His call?  Will you say to Him... Here I am LORD,
I am not good or perfect but I see and understand your Righteousness and Truth.  I am willing and wanting to walk in your ways.  I am willing to lay down my self and let your Glory and Love work.

  Genesis 22:11   And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
 Genesis 46:2   And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.
 Exodus 3:4   And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
1 Samuel 3:4   That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.
 Isaiah 6:8   Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

There are many great men in history that have heard the call of GOD ALMIGHTY and answered 
"Here am I"   The course of history was changed by these answers of men to JEHOVAH. 
 There is only ONE who orchestrates it all.  There is only ONE KING...............JEHOVAH

I love my brothers and sisters.........enough to put before you life and death in TRUTH

Deuteronomy 30:19   I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days:

Be Well my Friends...

Where are the nine?

Hello Brothers and Sisters...

 Luke 17:12   And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
 Luke 17:13   And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
Luke 17:14   And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
Luke 17:15   And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
Luke 17:16   And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
Luke 17:17   And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
Luke 17:18   There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
Luke 17:19   And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.

But where are the nine?  Being healed of leprosy and giving nothing for the blessing, after which not even a thanks let alone heartfelt gratitude for being made whole by Jesus.  They had not within them anything but take........... not a moment of give, not even for what they had just received by Grace.  One out of ten men was grateful for the greatest gift any of them had ever received.

I suspect the other nine were lepers again before they even made it to show themselves to the priest.

This to me is like the resurrection of Jesus our LORD in a way.  These men were basically dead, they had no life and what they did have was miserable in every way.  They all knew who Jesus was, they all called to him for healing and had the faith that they would be healed and made whole.  He didn't even touch them He just spoke to them and they were healed.

What would you do if you were given the gift of life by a Word??

Knowing your heart and spirit was filled with death and the infection of sin and no cure, no way to purge this filth from your soul.  Then you hear of Jesus of Nazareth and how Truth is in Him and He speaks words of life to all He encounters.  His life is an open book for all to see.  Filled with wonders that none have heard or seen.  Many had been taught by the religious leaders of the time of the miraculous things God had done for His people of which there were very many.  But this man spoke of the importance of following the Law which in those days was the Ten Commandments and only the Ten Commandments.  They knew that the remaining 603 judgments were to be carried out for the breaking of the Law.  This man spoke of having mercy and not sacrifice.  He did not want the killing of any more of His innocent creatures for man's not obeying the Law.  The religious leaders had emphasized the need to continually kill these creatures to atone for their sins instead of teaching the people to focus on the Law and obey.  If they obeyed there is no sin.  No more innocent creatures had to die at the hands of man to atone for his own sin.

This man spoke of loving each other and helping each other.  Looking out for those less fortunate and the widows and the sick.  To see to the needs of one another and teach them to walk in this covenant of good which is the Law.  This covenant which is for our good and if we walk in it...ALL WILL BE WELL.  All will live and prosper together in righteousness and truth.

This man not only spoke but acted in this covenant of good.  He walked all around the land and among the brethren.  He fed the people wherever He went not only with miraculous acts of turning water into wine, 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish to feed 5000 people with twelve baskets left over, also 7 loaves of bread and afew fish to feed 4000 people with seven baskets left over............hmmmmmmm
I wonder if the twelve baskets left over and the seven baskets left over have anything to do with
the Twelve Tribes of Israel and the Seven Churches.  God's Word is perfect in every way.
Anyway He did feed literally many others and most importantly fed them living waters so if they would take of and drink they would never thirst again......ever.

 John 4:9-10   Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
 John 4:14   But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

 Matthew 25:34-40   Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

This man healed us all if only we would accept it.  To accept means to receive and believe.  To believe means to live and love it with all your being.  The problem is that many, many....most do not know that He has healed us.  He has done it.........It is finished

Matthew 13:15   For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

 Luke 4:18-21   The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

  Hosea 11:3   I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them.

This man not only physically healed relentlessly.......

 Matthew 8:16-17   When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
Matthew 12:15   But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;

This man healed the spirit .......

 Luke 6:18-19   And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed.
And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.

This man fulfilled the covenant of good in every way.  His very life from birth to death and even after death.  He is the covenant of good, He is the rod...

 Isaiah 11:1-4   And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
Revelation 12:5   And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

This man is God in the flesh, God in His visit to His children.  A Special body prepared to hold the Spirit of God.  To walk among His children and show them the Way of Righteousness and Truth.  To show them of living the covenant of good and its results of eternal life. The resurrection of Our LORD Jesus shows us the results of this choice of life. Our LORD God saying to gather on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel,  this is the Grace of our LORD GOD.

Ezekiel 39:17   And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.

Jesus revealed to us in the Gospel to be of good cheer for He has overcome the world.  He has shown us that we can obey the covenant of good and live.  No we can never be as pure as He is but we can live His Law.  This is what it means to follow Him in Truth.
 John 16:33   These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
 1 John 4:4   Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
 Job 36:11-12   If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.
 Acts 5:29   Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.

 Romans 6:16-17   Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

This doctrine is the Law of GOD,  the Covenant of Good, the Ten Commandments.  This Law is eternal and by and for All Things thru out All Creation.

This Jesus the Christ............His sacrifice on the Cross is a most priceless selfless gift of Grace for all the sin we have had in our lives.  If we look upon this sin for real and repent for real before our Father and ask forgiveness He will gladly give it to you.  The key is to then look upon His life and all that it encompasses as we have discussed only some of it.  It means to feel in your heart as He feels in His heart,  all these things he willingly did for us, not because he had to,  because he wanted to. He did it for the few that would truly follow Him.  Many are called,  Few are chosen.  The life of our Jesus the Christ is our teacher and our example.  He is our Savior...........We are the sowers

Because at the end of the day the Lord GOD (Father) will gather the one out of ten from the four corners of the earth and heaven with His power the LORD God ( Jesus the Christ, the stretched out arm, the right hand) and leave the nine to their own devices. 

 Matthew 24:31   And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

I pray to our Father in Heaven that your choice is not in the nine that are lost...

Be Blessed...

No Greater Love...

Hello Brothers and Sisters...

He ain't heavy Father.............He's my Brother

This phrase originated over 100 years ago.  A girl of about 12 years was carrying her brother of about of about 9 years.  A man saw her walking with him and struggling some and offered to help her and she looked up to him and said.........He ain't heavy...........He's m' brother. 

If only we could have this heart for our brothers.  The welfare of this little girls brother was all her concern.  She wasn't worried or complaining about the work or the sacrifice made to make sure he made it.  She carried his burden with love and it wasn't even a question in her heart what she would do.  She just did it because it was good and right.  

John 15:13
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Jesus spoke these words to us.  Yes the surface context of these words is the literal dying of your physical vessel for the life of a friend.  But there is so much more.  Sacrificial love is all encompassing.  Paul says it very well....
Gal 5:14
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Matthew had abit more to add to this:
  Matthew 5:43   Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

  Matthew 5:44   But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
You see to love them that love you is easy.  To love them that hate you is a sacrifice.
Matthew 12:24   And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
2 Timothy 3 1-5
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Lovers of self is the rage.  Self this and self that.  It is the nature of our flesh to love ourselves first.  I believe this is not what our Father wants.  This is far from the example He set for us as He walked among us.  He gave all of Himself for us.  He did not put Himself first, the needs of all others He served first. 
Eph 5:2
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
Jesus was hated of by many and loved by many more.  He died for all, every single one.
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
So what is a friend??  We have friends to make us feel better.  They adore us and make us laugh and we have fun with them.  If we don't have fun with them we tend not to hang out with them.  They feed our ego and make us feel good. Social media is full of friends, the more likes you have the more important you feel.  Again its all about self.
Jesus said:
John 15:14-15   Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.  Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
Some might suggest that this speaks of conditional love.  That if we don't walk his commandments we will not be His friend.  Actually this is totally sacrificial love for us.  The good of the 10 Commandments is not for Him but for us, for our own good.  If we do not have the goodness within us and walk it then we slowly die.  You see only pure good can survive eternal.  Sin is chaos, confusion and death,  maybe not immediately but like yeast it will multiply until all is infected and eventually will die and take all it has infected with it.
Thru the Holy Bible (KJV) our Father has made known to us all that is needed for eternal life.  If there is no desire to learn and practice these things in this life there will be no desire to do so in the next. Your same Spirit is you eternally.  If we do not invest ourselves in that which is God's Good then we are invested in that which is not God's Good.  We do in fact reap what we sow.  What is bound on earth will also be bound in heaven.
Matt 18:18
Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
James 2:23
And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
Solomon had afew things to say about friends in Proverbs...
Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.
A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
And my favorite...
He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend.

The gift of life is most valuable thing we have.  To lay it down is to put yourself alittle lower than your brother.  To help him in anyway you can to help him to gain eternal life.  To share with him the goodness that our Father has bestowed upon you both in the physical and the spiritual. 
Jesus did this for his friends and his enemies.  He did this for all that we might know that we can overcome sin and be resurrected unto eternal life.  He went way beyond what He is asking from us.
The word Joy explains in itself how to attain real Joy.  Jesus first.......Others second........Yourself last.
Hebrews 2:9
But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
Luke 9:24
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
John 10:17
Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
1Peter 3:18
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
This scripture tells us that it is not a man dying for man but GOD dying for man.
Come out of her my people, come out of the darkness and into the light which is our LORD Jesus!!!
Luke 11: 33-36
  No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.
  The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
  Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.
Romans 13:10
Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
Be Blessed and much Love!!!

Pearls of Great Price.........

Hello Brothers and Sisters...

Matthew 13:45-46
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
This is a beautiful scripture describing our lives and the process thereof.  The kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man which is our LORD JESUS CHRIST.  It is HE who seeks after us, the goodly pearls.
How is a pearl formed?  Here is this oyster growing inside this heavy duty protective shell. 
Then something foreign invades this body whether it be a piece of dirt or a grain of sand.  This foreign particle can be likened to sin in our lives which invades our hearts, souls and minds. 
Then as the beautiful design of our Father takes hold in the physical as well as the spiritual the oyster begins to coat this foreign invader with what is called the mother of pearl.  Through a very long process and very slowly the protective coat grows thicker and thicker with this most beautiful garment.
GOD in His infinite wisdom has provided us with this garment.  The invasion of sin into the world and our own lives and all around us has separated us from the Good and Righteousness that is GOD, should we choose to partake of it.  It has invaded this earth so much now that the world is calling evil good and good evil.  The only set standard of Good is that of our Creator and Father.  The Good covenant put forth by His own finger for us to follow for our own good, The Ten Commandments.
Layer by layer throughout our lives this protective garment grows stronger should we choose to accept and follow the Good from which it is produced. Our work is to make this garment white and spotless just like a pearl and to help each other in this journey.  One thin layer at a time slowly surrounds us as we step forward into HIS Goodness and realize how beautiful and perfect all HIS creation is.
You see we are the pearls and a great price has been paid for us.  We didn't pay the price HE did for us out of love.  HE gave everything He had.....He left his place to come to this sinful place,  He created a very special body for Him to inhabit, He walked among his creation full of sin, He taught and healed in the face of abuse and rejection by His very own children.  He showed us despite ourselves the example of living the fulfillment of His Good Covenant for our own good.  He showed us His Glory of which some has been imparted unto to us to share.  That regardless of what man has taught us we can or cannot do,  We can live in His Goodness and the Freedom we attain in this Truth is eternal.

Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

When He had found ONE pearl He sold everything He had to buy it.  This is what our LORD JESUS has done for us.  You and I are that ONE pearl.  Thank you Father for your mercy and grace!!!
Jesus Christ our LORD bought us, the garment is His life and blood.  If we accept and live in it, a Beautiful Pearl of great price is born.
Be Blessed!!!

Do you sleep well?

Brothers and Sisters

Psalms 3:5   I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.

David writes this when he was fleeing from his son Absalam.  He was fleeing for his life again for Absalam was looking to take over as king.  How could David sleep well?

David knew the LORD.  He knew the LORD and he knew it is only the LORD that sustains us.  There is no other in all the universe, in all creation, in all that man's mind can bring forth that can sustain life.

  Psalms 3:3   But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

 Psalms 3:4   I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and he heard me out of his holy hill Selah.


In fleeing from all the trouble and those rising up against him David knew it was the LORD's glory not his own that would sustain him.  He knew he had no glory of himself.

Interesting that he cried unto the LORD and he knew the LORD heard him out of his holy mountain which is Jerusalem.  Why would David state that the LORD heard him out of his holy mountain instead of saying the LORD heard him from heaven.  David knew the LORD would come out of Jerusalem.  There are examples of the people crying out to the LORD and HIM hearing them from heaven which would be logical.

 Neh 9:28 

But after they had rest, they did evil again before thee: therefore leftest thou them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them: yet when they returned, and cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and many times didst thou deliver them according to thy mercies;

David did not sacrifice innocent creatures as did the religious leaders of his time.  David knew that forgiveness for sin came directly from GOD and only from GOD.

David knew that when he sinned it was a sin against GOD and GOD only.

Psalms 51:1   Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

  Psalms 51:2   Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

  Psalms 51:3   For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

  Psalms 51:4   Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

David knew that GOD wants from us real truth in our hearts and in return GOD will make us to understand.  David asks GOD to purge him with hyssop and he would be clean,

did you know that hyssop was used for purifying,  the Hebrews were instructed to use Hyssop dipped in the blood of the lamb to paint their doorposts the night the angel of death came to take all the firstborn in the Exodus. 

Psalms 51:6   Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

  Psalms 51:7   Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

David knew that only GOD can heal our brokenness before Him.  Only GOD can renew our spirits with joy and gladness.

Psalms 51:8   Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

  Psalms 51:9   Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

  Psalms 51:10   Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

  Psalms 51:11   Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

  Psalms 51:12   Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit

So you see Scripture is perfect and GOD foretold long before HE physically came to this earth, HIS perfect plan of salvation for those who would hear and honor.  Jesus Christ our LORD God is GOD.  HE is the power of our GOD sent forth since the beginning.

Take heed my brothers and sisters!!!

 Be Blessed!!!

Our Father's Garden...

Hello Brothers and Sisters

Genesis 2:8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
Genesis 2:9 And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

The Lord's most prized possession...being formed by His power and given everything he would need to live eternally in this special place, this place called a garden. One has to believe that this “garden” is much deeper in meaning than soil. Oh yes, it is the soil from which the Lord brought us upon this earth, taught us to follow His will and the very place He was laid in body after His crucifixion. The garden is very important indeed, to our Father of course and in turn important for us to treasure and understand.

Jeremiah 29:5 Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them.

The Lord instructs us many times through out His word to plant gardens, to be fruitful and to enjoy the goodness He alone made from this earth. He also asks us to be like the garden by doing right by Him and His will which will bring forth good fruits and will bring us closer to Him and each other.

Isaiah 1:28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed.
1:29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.

The Lord also warns against choosing any garden that is not of Him, any wayward walk is where we lay forever without Him.

Luke 13:18 Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?
13:19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.

Wow, just wow… first, to dwell in the Lord describing the breadth of His kingdom and the ways in which He made it, and that He shared that with us...thank you Father. Secondly, again He tells us how important this garden is to Him in that He uses it to describe HIS kingdom?! We are so truly blessed to be His and to be grown from this special place.

John 19:40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
19:41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
19:42 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.

Our Lord's very body was slain and laid to rest in a garden, HIS garden I say, because it is all His. All the earth, all the heavens and all of existence belongs to Him alone, it IS Him, amen!

Clearly our Father holds dear this very sacred place, this “garden” of His. The earth is His garden, the heavens are His garden, we are His garden! He has built this garden from beginning to end and will continue to nurture and tend to all that grow in Him.
How blessed are those that grow from the hand of the Almighty, receive His pruning and who flourish eternally in His everlasting glory.

           Grow your gardens well! Xoxo

Waiting on the Lord...

Hello Brothers and Sisters

Those four words hold all the meaning in the world of you believe them, if you live them and if you trust them.
What does it truly mean to wait on the Lord and why is that simple statement so verily important? It could be interpreted in many ways I suppose; literal span of time waiting for the Lord's return, maybe applying it to our daily life obstacles eg fulfilling our desires, hopes and dreams or even overcoming illness. How about the spiritual facet, having a patience and trust in the Lord and His will.

Psalms 27:14 - Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

Psalms 37:34 - Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see [it].

Psalms 40:1 - (To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

Those four words are placed so perfectly in His word to tend to all of the matters listed above. My personal belief is that waiting on the Lord truly breaks down to having faith in the Lord, His will and His word. It is literal time. It is hearing His call and plans for our lives daily. His desire to take care of us as well as building patience, trust, and a desire for His will to be fulfilled not our own.
Waiting on the Lord= Faith on/in the Lord.

One of my favorite verses that tends to waiting on the Lord through faith is that spoken by Paul in Galatians 2:20.

Galatians 2:20 - I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Wow....  What a powerful declaration of faith. What a profound realization of the Lord's living AND dying through Jesus Christ for our souls. What a joy in knowing that by the gift of Jesus and by His blood alone we are one with Him. He lives daily in us and we exist only through Him!
That to me is waiting on the Lord. That to me is faith. To walk daily as Christ is in me. His will be done. His plans at work, not my own. It is all He wants for us, to believe. To trust Him in all ways and to have faith in His plan for us.

God Bless !!!

These Simple Things...

Hello Brothers and Sisters

Luke 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.

Oh how those words are all we need to hear and follow. The Lord gives us all we need in this one scripture but what does it mean to hear the word of God? Is it hearing the words of the bible, is it hearing the Lord speaking to you spiritually? And how do you hear the word of God, how do YOU hear the Lord in your life? I believe the answer to these questions lay in two simple, but all encompassing things, wisdom and understanding…

Proverbs 3:19 The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

Wow...what a powerful, powerful beginning this wisdom and understanding has, that the Lord founded this very earth in wisdom and He established the heavens in understanding! If these two attributes could be this important to our Father, what place should they have in our lives?
When trying to hear God's word in any capacity, we must start from the beginning as the Lord did, in wisdom and understanding. But what does that mean?? What is wisdom from God's perspective and how does that translate to understanding, especially within our little abilities?

Proverbs 10:28 The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
Proverbs 11:23 The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.

Righteousness. Oh to follow the Lord with all you are and stay in His ways! Yes! This is to be wise according to our Father. To lay down your own will for His that is greater.
The Lord created us, in His perfect ways, to give us a life everlasting. We must trust and be wise to HIS infinite wisdom. We attain this wisdom through reading of His Holy word. And by having faith…

Psalm 101:6 Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.
Exodus 31:3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship.

Faith brings understanding of and in the Lord. To be faithful to His will, to depend on His desires for us alone and to put into action the spirit of the Lord given to us in His word, the bible.

So if we read His word and keep it, follow it and let it be our guide, the Lord bestows His wisdom upon us, through us. And if we truly believe, through faith, in His plan, we receive His understanding!

Hearing the word of God, keeping it, honoring it is not only receiving our Lord through reading His word but by truly applying it in our lives as our number one. Through reading and sharing in His plan we grow spiritually, becoming one with Him. Through walking in that growth, with faith and hope in Him as our light, we gain understanding and a thankful heart for His amazing, amazing plan!

So, be righteous in the Lord, may your wisdom and understanding in Him never cease to grow and listen to His word and keep it always!

Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
Your sister in Christ,

As You Walk thru a Storm...

Hello Brothers and Sisters...

As you walk thru a storm hold your head up high and don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm there's a golden sky and the sweet silver sound of a lark...

Walk on thru the wind
Walk on thru the rain

Thou' your dreams be tossed and blown... Walk on..Walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone,  You'll never walk alone...

One of my favorite songs and so very true...  As you walk with GOD you will never walk alone.
HE will never leave or forsake you.  Don't leave or forsake HIM!  It is only we who turn away from Him.  HE is always there, HE never changes.  HE is the same today as yesterday.

Mal 3:6 
For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

In our walk of and in life on this earth I see in each one of us a manner in which we choose to live.  A manner in which we work, play, act, talk, and treat our brothers.  All of these things relate to what and how we think about ourselves and our brothers.  What we think is then acted on in our movements and deeds.  Things done, shared, and said to those around us.  I pray all these things are done with Hope in our Hearts.
Darkness is all around us in this day but one thing darkness cannot overcome is LIGHT!!!

JESUS CHRIST is the LIGHT!!!  Be not afraid!!!   JESUS is the Power of the Living GOD, the LORD God.  There is only one Living God.  The GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  The GOD of /in the King James Version of the HOLY WORD, the HOLY BIBLE.  The only Living GOD that proved by Physically coming and living amongst HIS creation to show HIS children the walk of Truth and Goodness.  Physically fulfilling HIS COVENANT OF GOOD written with HIS OWN FINGER for us.  The Ten Commandments of GOOD!  This GOOD is not for HIM but for us!!!
Walk in this Goodness, allow it to consume you,  ALL of you!  Abide in it,  read HIS Word constantly, fill every ounce of your being with it until you eat, live and breathe it.  Walk in this enough and the Goodness becomes you.  Remember you are what you eat...right??

Luke 10:19

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
John 12:46
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
If your house (your mind) is not completely filled, if you have left spaces empty in the furthest corners of your mind the darkness will fill in any space not occupied.
Matt 12:43-45  When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 
Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
When we turn from darkness, we turn our back on what it represents and we choose not to partake of its fruits (sin),  we must turn to the LIGHT and let it  completely fill us and walk in it.  The acceptance of the LIGHT (JESUS the POWER OF GOD) is the first step.  The walk is the continued steps (action) on the narrow path.  Unfortunately not many will continue, not many will see the LIGHT at the end of the tunnel,  not many will endure to the end and walk the GOOD walk of faith.
Matt 7:14
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Matt 22:14
For many are called, but few are chosen.
GOD made promises to those who will endure to the end.  GOD breaks not HIS promises.  To endure and keep walking the narrow path will prove to you beyond any doubt who GOD is.  Its the path, the journey that shows you time after time after time that GOD is real and living and very much a part of your little itty bitty life.
Luke 12:6-7
Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 
But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
A father corrects his children for various reasons.  Our Father corrects HIS children as well.  In our walk down this narrow path there are multitudes and I mean multitudes of side paths.  These paths are very SHORT and it is very easy to see the fruits of the detour and it'll only take a minute to sidetrack and check it out.  The sight of which looks to good to be true and guess what..........IT IS!!!
The devil comes disguised as an angel of light to deceive you into thinking wow this is great and good.  What appears to be good is often times only what man deems to be good.  There is only one set standard for GOOD and it is set by the Creator of ALL THINGS. 
Heb 11:25
Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
2Cor 11:14
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Isa 48:10
Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.
Mark 4:13-20
 And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?  The sower soweth the word.  And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.  And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;  And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.  And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,  And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.  And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.
Endure to the end...
Heb 12:7
If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
2Tim 4:3 
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
Not ever word you hear is from God is truly from GOD.  Discernment only comes with a CLOSE relationship to your Father.  A close relationship means you talk daily.  It means there is communication between you...talking and listening.  It is not a one way street.  The set standard has long been established by the very finger of our GOD.  Let no man persuade or sugar coat any word differently.
Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
GOD's promises have and will be fulfilled as they always have been and will be...Amen
2Cor 7:1
Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Heb 11:33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions
2Peter 1:4 
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
2Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
1John 2:25
And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
Even so...
1John 2:6
He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
Jas 2:17
Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
Rev 22:20
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
Thank you for listening...I pray for understanding for each one LORD JESUS!!!

The Work of Righteousness...

Hello Brothers and Sisters

Isaiah 32:17  And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever.

Did someone say work??   Yes,  GOD did!!!  The work of righteousness,  it is a work.  It takes you wanting to do it and then doing it.  The beauty of it is you can do it anywhere and everywhere and at anytime.  You can do it when you are alone or with many.  You can do it all the time or once in awhile.  You can do it when you are at home or driving in your car or anywhere you may be.

1Tim 6:11
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

2Tim 2:22  
Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

What a work uh??  The effect is the payment...........this is where is gets real good.  Quietness.... oh how wonderful is the stillness of your mind.  Be still and know that I am GOD...  there it is.  Free from stress and aggravation,  free from worry and confusion.  A quiet mind is a healthy mind.  This comes with a clear/clean conscience before GOD. 

1 Peter 3:16
Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
1 Peter 2:19
For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.
When attacked for righteousness be thankful to endure a small taste of what our LORD JESUS has suffered for us.
You is not our righteousness but JESUS CHRIST is our righteousness.  It is HE we follow and work in/of HIS example.  It is HIS righteousness and we are to work it in all we do.
Psa 40:10
I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.
For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.
And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.
Proverbs....The wisest man in the world shares his wisdom with us .........  for us.  Here is some wisdom ............
Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.
Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.
Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death
The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.
In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death.
Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
O How this nation is a reproach to the world in this day.  When this nation began it was in righteousness and it blessed all the world.  Sadly it has turned from righteousness and spread unrighteousness to all the world.  Stand firm people of GOD...........We are renewed in HIM......If we will let HIM use us, If we will allow HIS spirit to fill and flow thru us the power of HIS goodness and righteousness will manifest in ways we could never conceive of.
 Everyday I see HIS power at work whether it be in my small little world or in this great big  gorgeous ball we call earth.
Isa 41:10
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Isa 45:8
Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.
Isa 51:6-8
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.
Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.
For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.
Righteousness is also forgiveness in fullness.  By this I mean to the very depths of who you are without your flesh.  Who are we without our flesh.....have you ever really thought about that?
Take away this container called our body completely and what still stands there.  Standing there all by itself is only the sum of all your work.  Everything you are...........complete with a recording of your entire being from conception to physical death.  Every thought, action, non action, desire, emotion everything you interacted in/of/with/for/against.  No flesh anymore,  just you as you really are.  Standing there with no more excuses, no more buts, no more becauses.
Every true and honest feeling within you is no longer covered up by your flesh.  The covering is gone and the true contents of you are revealed.  Judgment and Mercy are given accordingly.
Mat 7:2
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Mat 12:36
But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
Jhn 7:24
Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
Rom 2:2
But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
Rom 14:10
But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
Jas 2:13
For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
1 Jhn 4:17
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.
JESUS CHRIST is our example, The Begotten (planned) Son of GOD ... Gave HIS life for our forgiveness.  If HE had not made a way for our forgiveness then we would be standing there in all our chosen sin.  Remember it is HIS Blood given in love that covers our chosen sin not anything we have done in righteousness.  The Life is in the Blood,  only HIS Blood is pure and only HIS Blood sacrificed will Father accept as atonement for sin.  We are given forgiveness as a gift thru true repentance which is turning from sin.  To walk in HIS way of righteousness to be counted as worthy to aid and assist GOD in HIS house (the universe).
If we harbor feelings against our brothers, this means to show in the flesh that you have forgiven a brother but when your flesh is gone, lo and behold there is a seed hiding inside of you.  No flesh to hide these things we choose not to bring before GOD in truth,  they are very painful sometimes and for now it seems easier to bury them deep within us.  Let us pray that when we appear before our GOD in judgment there will not be seeds of corruption within us that we have not repented of. 
Col 1:14 
In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Mat 6:14-15
For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
1 Jhn 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Please Brothers forgive one another and love each other as GOD loves us.  We would do well to heed HIS WORD.
Be Blessed!!!

Life is a Puzzle...

Hello Brothers and Sisters,

Imagine you are the creator of a most beautiful puzzle.  This puzzle is complete with everything needed.  It is a visual fulfillment of all things to sustain life.  In it you will find everything needed to grow your physical body to a state of strength and health.  In it you will also find everything needed to grow your spirit to a state of strength and health.  This puzzle is a picture of the path of our lives.

At birth we are given one piece of this puzzle.  We do not get to see the cover of the box, so we have no idea what the end result of what this puzzle will look like.  We have one piece and its just this blurry little mess that we cannot make heads or tails of.  It may or may not have any color on it to indicate to us if it might be part of this or that. 

Depending on our environment consisting of our parents and church leaders or lack thereof we begin to grow both physically and spiritually by what we are fed.  When we are fed we get more pieces of this grand puzzle and if we are fed good food from the creator some of these pieces will fit together.
If we are not fed good food, by this I mean food that will only sustain us physically,  we will grow only physically.  We still get some pieces to the puzzle but none of them fit together.  It is extremely hard to begin to see what this puzzle will look like if none of these pieces will even connect together.

As we go thru life we continue to collect many pieces of this puzzle.  Some are fed to us, some we collect thru the mercy of the creator.  Sometimes we could care less what this puzzle looks like or what it could mean to our lives.  Sometimes we feel this inner desire to search out pieces so we can start to understand what the cover looks like.  Until then we can only imagine what the creator had in mind when He formed this puzzle.  We know that this puzzle is complete with all things needed..... so I want to keep searching for pieces.  So because I want to know what the end result of this puzzle is I must search out the desire and purpose for us that the creator intended.

Fortunately for us His desire is for us to find all the pieces to this beautiful puzzle.  Are we searching???

Job 21:14 
 Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.

Job 33:29-33
    Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,

   To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

   Mark well, O Job, hearken unto me: hold thy peace, and I will speak.

   If thou hast any thing to say, answer me: speak, for I desire to justify thee.

   If not, hearken unto me: hold thy peace, and I shall teach thee wisdom.

Psa 145:16
   Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

If we search earnestly from our hearts, the LORD will reveal wisdom and understanding with each puzzle piece given.  These two pearls are spoken of in Proverbs 3:13-35 

13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.
16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
19 The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.
20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.
21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:
22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.
24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.
26 For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
28 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.
29 Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.
30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.
31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.
32 For the froward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous.
33 The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

Imagine seeing this puzzle completed in all its Glory and Honor!!!  Seeing this beautiful Master Plan all in a panoramic view before you and not being able to be in it.  Imagine you are told "You have no cord to connect you."  You see this amazing realm with perfect clarity and it is GOOD.  Every part of your being cries out for it but your puzzle pieces are scattered and make no sense.  There is no connection for any of the pieces.  Not enough time or effort has been put towards seeking the purpose and desire of the Creator for this puzzle to be able to make some sense of what it is suppose to look like.  Then all of the sudden the cover is revealed to you.  You see the end result and it is beyond anything you could have ever imagined.

Rev 21:1-8  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Rev 22 1-5  And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

The above scripture is but a small part of GOD's Plan for you if you have enough pieces of this puzzle connected together.  In other words if you are worthy enough to be a part of it.
To have no connection to the LORD GOD is to be isolated from all that is GOOD.  This is hell.  This is the place of weeping and gnashing of teeth.  A place of outer darkness, there is no light there.

The LORD God is the light of the Universe.

John 8:12 
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Matt 25:30 
And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Luke 13:28 
There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
To see this vision that the Word of GOD describes for us.... before our death from this realm of life is of most importance.  You see..........Today is the first day of the rest of your life.  You may have years or maybe its just months or maybe its just afew days.  Whatever it may be.... Please use it wisely.
You will see this puzzle completed and I pray you will be able to be in it and not just see it from a distance.
We are to love our brothers and in doing so we help them in any way we can.  These good deeds we do because of the GOOD that our Father in Heaven is.  The GOOD that He has given us though undeserving.  None of us deserve life eternal.  Each piece of this puzzle, if we ingest it with prayers for understanding and wisdom from GOD, He will guide us to GOODness and GODliness  which becomes our connection to HIM.  HIS purpose is that none would choose to fall.
Deu 5:29 
O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!
Ezra 10:8  
And that whosoever would not come within three days, according to the counsel of the princes and the elders, all his substance should be forfeited, and himself separated from the congregation of those that had been carried away.
You see when we pass from this realm of life on earth to the next realm of life.......all the stuff you have accumulated in this life will not go with you.  Only what is accumulated in your heart..........your thoughts (Good or not).......your actions or deeds (Good or not).  Everything will be weighed in the balance.
Dan 5:27
TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.
Psa 28:4
Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.
Jhn 3:19
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Rev 16:11
And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
When we have iniquitous thoughts we must be able to identify them immediately and turn from them.
Are you be able to identify iniquity if it entered into you?  Imagine standing before your creator absolutely naked and I mean even without any skin.  Your every everything is completely exposed before HIM.  HE gave you life and if you want to look at it truthfully.......HE has asked very little from us in return.  Imagine the shame or imagine the joy!  We must learn and learn very well what sin is!!!   When we act on these un GODly impulses or whispers it becomes sin and all sin has to be faced before the LORD God (Jesus Christ) and repented of in truth if one is to have salvation.  This is the Grace of our LORD JESUS!!!
Matthew 22:10-14
So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
For many are called, but few are chosen.
Job 36:20
 Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place.

People are cut off in their place..........whatever place you are in when you die,  this will be your place.  Watch therefore and be sure of your place in salvation.

Romans 4:16 
Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all
Psa 3:8
Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
Psa 25:5 
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
Luke 3:6 
And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
All flesh shall see the salvation of God, let us pray and work dear brothers and sisters that we might be counted worthy of the Kingdom of GOD.
May our LORD Bless you and keep you......
