    • If Jesus gives up all his time to be with you . What time would you give up for Jesus.
      what would you give? To Jesus in return.

    • January 19, 2019 12:08 AM EST
    • Jesus gave over all his time Just to be with me.
      He gave over his life and risen to be with me.he wanted me to know how much I mean to him. But I have come to show him how much he means to me.

    • Hey guys I made a new account here Jono is my nick name.
      look thinking about how much Jesus loves us really touches my heart. He gave over his life just to be with us so that we may live for him. .I just break down into tears.
      he died and risen for us because he loves us.
      whenever you see the holy spirit we all break down into tears.
      beleive me I listen to hillsongs every day realizing the truth that we are nothing without Jesus.
      Jesus wants to reach your hearts same as he reached my heart.
      He did nothing wrong so why do they persecute him? 
      All that matters to me and us all is giving our love back for Jesus in return.

    • I was physically standing with Jesus in spirit.
      he knew every word I was about to say before I say it.
      he spoke to me to lead me on in spirit into a new life to live forever with him in his kingdom.

    • October 30, 2018 4:12 PM EDT
    • God gave me the ability to foresight my death and pulling out of my body. It was like I was getting plucked out of my body and reaching my spirit state. I want to live in this life for a very long time . But when god says it’s time for me to leave aThen I leave. 

    • October 30, 2018 4:09 PM EDT
    • Our souls eventually move on from the physical body immediately after death we live forever in spirit as we naturally can not live forever in our physical body. Spirit body is everlasting the spirit existence is real.

    • The Lord does speak to me especially when I am alone in my car for some reason, I spoke in tongues without even trying several times. I love to listen to gospel music in my car. My wife praises God constantly, non stop. I mean CONSTANTLY.

    • October 30, 2018 7:05 AM EDT
    • You are correct, we need to be sensitve to the Holy Spirit when He speaks to us

    • October 30, 2018 7:00 AM EDT
    • Thank you don.
      we all are in direct contact with Jesus the moment  we all accept him.

    • October 30, 2018 6:58 AM EDT
    • I love that last line, I feel I am in direct contact with Jesus . He also told me he will always be with me even after my life is complete.    Amen Jonathan

    • AS MOST OF YOU KNOW...THE FAITHFUL CSN PRAYER WARRIORS HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR YEARS FOR THE LORD TO EXPOSE AND BRING TO JUSTICE THOSE THAT HARM CHILDREN. THESE 100s of THOUSANDS OF THE CHILDREN SOLD/KIDNAPPED/STOLEN TO FILL THE PEDOPHILE/SEX TRAFFICKERS PLEASURE ISLANDS, BROTHELS, AND SATANIC CULTS WORLD WIDE. TODAY SEX TRAFFICKING IS UNBELIEVABLY MORE PROFITABLE THAN ILLEGAL GUNS AND DRUGS.

    • SIMPLY PUT EDDIE, AS THE BIBLE SAYS, WE ARE IN THE WORLD, BUT SET APART FROM IT AND ITS NORMS.

       

      WE WHO LOVE AND CALL JESUS CHRIST, LORD SAVIOR, MASTER, AND FRIEND, AND WHO READ, STUDY, FOLLOW, AND TRUST HIS WORD ARE IN THE MINORITY IN THIS WORLD, BUT OUR COMMAND FROM JESUS IS TO SHINE, SHARE, AND SHOW THE LOVE OF OUR JESUS.

      WE ALL WHO ARE OUT AND AMONG THE PUBLIC WORLD ARE DRAWN INTO SUCH ((SITUATIONAL)) THINGS.

       

      SOMETIMES IT IS ONLY FOR A SEASON, SOMETIMES IT IS FOR A LIFE TIME.

       

      ONLY JESUS KNOWS.

       

      BUT WE ARE THE SOWERS OF OUR JESUS WORD.  WE SEEK TO WALK AND LIVE AND GIVE TESTIMONY TO THE GOODNESS OF OUR JESUS WHEREEVER WE GO.

       

      SOMETIMES WE REAP A HARVEST, SOMETIMES WE ARE ONLY THE SOWER OF SEEDS, BUT IN EACH INCIDENT WE ARE THERE FOR A REASON THAT ONLY OUR JESUS KNOWS FULLY AND PERFECTLY.

       

      AND JUST AS OUR JESUS INTERACTED WITH, WAS DRAWN INTO SITUATIONS, SOME WERE FED FOR A TIME, THEN TURNED ON HIM, AND REJECTED HIM AND WENT BACK TO THE WORLD.

       

      THAT HAPPENS TO ALL OF US.

       

      BOTTOM LINE, OUR JESUS IS AN EXCELLENT ACCOUNTANT, SO WE JUST KEEP GOING AND SEE WHAT OUR JESUS WILL DO WITH THE TESTIMONY OF THE GOODNESS OF OUR JESUS AND HIS WORD, THE OUT-STRETCHED HAND, THE SHOULDER, AND THE HEART WE SEEK TO TOUCH AND INTRODUCE TO OUR JESUS.

       

      AND THEN WE LEAVE THE RESULTS TO OUR JESUS.

      The way i am reading this , you are a help and a blessing to other people in trying to iron out their problems but then there comes a time when you must step away. That sounds pretty normal to me. I don't quite understand the transitional part

      Thanks Don, 

      I was speaking more from the perspective of the frequency in which I am in and out of situations like that. It is almost as I am being guided into these situations to be the blessing, and then pulled out to be prepared to go into another one. It is just odd.

    • The way i am reading this , you are a help and a blessing to other people in trying to iron out their problems but then there comes a time when you must step away. That sounds pretty normal to me. I don't quite understand the transitional part

    • August 1, 2018 5:08 PM EDT
    • I know many of you are saying "What???" but here this one, and tell me what you think. Solely based on experiences.

       

      I would enter into a set of circumstances, typically involving other people who for some reason or another were in spiritual dire straits, or dealing with things like depression, lowered self esteem, or some other form of instability. I would not seek these situations out, I am just led to the situation. I am now in the situation, sometimes for four or so years, during which time my positive nature flips the situation and helps to foster a better situation for the ones I am involved with. Then suddenly, things go the other way for me, and I am compelled to leave the situation. Still the other parties are far better than they were before I encountered them, but I am forced to leave due to the situation becoming uncomfortable. A little period of time goes by, and I am led into another situation with similar sets of circumstances, and pretty much the same results. Once the situation is flipped, everyone is comfortable, suddenly a situation occurs that makes me uncomfortable to the point where I have to leave the situation. 

       

      Now this has gone on so many times in my life, and I will admit when I was in my 20s to early 30s I'd questions what in the world was going on. The I started to realize that my being in those situations was a blessing to the other people involved. That is what I begin to wonder I am being used in the form of a transitional blessing of sorts? 

      I know it sounds weird, but what do you think? I'm just curious. Perhaps you've had similar experiences. Share your thoughts.

    • YOU ARE MOST WELCOME JANICE.  ALL OF MY GRANDPARENTS, MY DAD, TWIN BABY BOYS, AND ONE GRANDSON, ALONG WITH MANY EXTENDED FAMILY MEMBERS HAVE ALREADY GONE HOME TO BE WITH OUR JESUS.  THEY ARE VERY MUCH ALIVE, HAPPY, AND SAFE WITH OUR SWEET LORD JESUS...AND ONE SWEET DAY I WILL SEE THEM AGAIN. SO WHILE I MISS THEM ALL TO THIS DAY, I DO NOT WORRY OR GRIEVE, BECAUSE I KNOW JESUS, I TRUST IN HIS PROMISES AND HIS GRACE AND MERCY AND SALVATION OFFERED US ALL. AND OUR JESUS IS TAKING EXCELLENT CARE OF THEM!!!

    • February 22, 2018 7:25 AM EST
    • Oh thank you so much because I really miss him. Je passed 7 years ago the same year my grandbaby was born. That really encourage me to know that i will see my brother again. Thanks so much God bless you

    • February 21, 2018 3:26 PM EST
    • JANICE YOU NEED TO REMEMBER THAT OUR JESUS CHRIST, IS OUR CREATOR.  HE CALLED THE DEAD FROM THE GRAVE.  MANKIND MAY HAVE A PROBLEM COMMUNICATING WITH PEOPLE WITH MENTAL AND PHYSICAL DISABILITIES OR HANDICAPS BUT JESUS DOES NOT. AND REMEMBER THE THIEF ON THE CROSS, HE ASKED JESUS TO FORGIVE HIM, PROCLAIMED JESUS WAS HE LORD GOD, AND JESUS TOLD HIM...THIS DAY YOU WILL BE WITH ME IN HEAVEN.  THE THIEF ON THE CROSS, DID NOT HAVE A CHANCE TO CHANGE HIS LIFE, LIVE FOR JESUS, HE WAS MOMENTS AWAY FROM DEATH, BUT JESUS SAVED HIM.

       

      AND REMEMBER TOO, OUR SALVATION IS NOT WORKS BASED. WE CAN NEVER EARN NOR BE WORTHY OF HEAVEN.  JESUS PAID ALL OF OUR SIN DEBT AND OUR PRICES TO BE PAID ON THE CROSS.

      JESUS IS WONDERFULLY LOVING, COMPASSIONATE, AND UNDERSTANDING OF OUR WEAKNESSES AND OUR PHYSICAL, MENTAL OR EMOTIONAL LIMITATIONS.  IF YOUR BROTHER CALLED UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, YOU WILL SEE HIM AGAIN ONE SWEET DAY IN HEAVEN.

    • February 21, 2018 1:22 PM EST
    • Sure he did!! He accepted Jesus he is in Heaven. Rest with that and continue to trust ☺

    • February 21, 2018 11:24 AM EST
    • I wanted to know did my brother make it to heaven. My brother was born with s low intellectual mentality. He never made it pass the third grade. He don't know how to read and write. He went to church with hid wife. Then he came toy church and got save. He didn't know how to live for God because of his mental disability. So he was still doing worldly things. Because of his limited knowledge of who God is and he didn't know how to read or understand the bible. He passed away did he still make it to heaven. My pastor laid hands on him and prayed for salvation. He did accept Christ.

    • HEY CSN FAMILY!!!  DO YOU KNOW WHAT GMO MEANS? WHAT GMO IS? HERE IS THE DEFINITION: A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans.

       

      MAKE SURE YOU CHECK AND STAY FAR AWAY FROM GMO FOODS, SNACKS, AND DRINKS.  

       

      What is a GMO?
      Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and virus genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.

      Most GMOs have been engineered to withstand the direct application of herbicide and/or to produce an insecticide. However, new technologies are now being used to artificially develop other traits in plants, such as a resistance to browning in apples, and to create new organisms using synthetic biology. Despite biotech industry promises, there is no evidence that any of the GMOs currently on the market offer increased yield, drought tolerance, enhanced nutrition, or any other consumer benefit.

      Visit the What is GMO page for more information and a list of high-risk crops.

      Are GMOs safe?
      A growing body of evidence connects GMOs with health problems, environmental damage, and violation of farmers’ and consumers’ rights. More than 60 countries around the world – including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union – require GMOs to be labeled. Globally, there are also 300 regions with outright bans on growing GMOs.

      In the absence of credible independent long-term feeding studies, the safety of GMOs is unknown. Increasingly, citizens are taking matters into their own hands and choosing to opt out of the GMO experiment.

      Are GMOs labelled?
      Sixty-four countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, require genetically modified foods to be labeled. 1 While a 2015 ABC News survey found that 93% of Americans believe genetically modified foods should be labelled, GMOs are not required to be labelled in the U.S. and Canada. 2 In the absence of mandatory labeling, the Non-GMO Project was created to give consumers the informed choice they deserve.

      Which foods might contain GMOs?
      Most packaged foods contain ingredients derived from corn, soy, canola, and sugar beet — and the vast majority of those crops grown in North America are genetically modified. 3

      To see a list of high-risk crops, visit the What is GMO page.

      Animal products: The Non-GMO Project also considers livestock, apiculture, and aquaculture products at high risk because genetically engineered ingredients are common in animal feed. This impacts animal products such as: eggs, milk, meat, honey, and seafood.

      Processed inputs, including those from synthetic biology: GMOs also sneak into food in the form of processed crop derivatives and inputs derived from other forms of genetic engineering, such as synthetic biology. Some examples include: hydrolyzed vegetable protein corn syrup, molasses, sucrose, textured vegetable protein, flavorings, vitamins  yeast products, microbes & enzymes, flavors, oils & fats, proteins, and sweeteners.

      How do GMOs affect farmers?

      Because GMOs are novel life forms, biotechnology companies have been able to obtain patents to control the use and distribution of their genetically engineered seeds. As a result, the companies that make GMOs now have the power to sue farmers whose fields have been contaminated with GMOs, even when it is the result of the drift of pollen from neighboring fields.4

      Genetically modified crops therefore pose a serious threat to farmer sovereignty and to the national food security of any country where they are grown.

      What are the impacts of GMOs on the environment?
      More than 80% of all genetically modified crops grown worldwide have been engineered for herbicide tolerance.5 As a result, the use of toxic herbicides, such as Roundup®, has increased fifteenfold since GMOs were first introduced.6 In March 2015, the World Health Organization determined that the herbicide glyphosate (the key ingredient in Roundup®) is “probably carcinogenic to humans.”

      Genetically modified crops also are responsible for the emergence of “superweeds” and “superbugs,” which can only be killed with ever more toxic poisons such as 2,4-D (a major ingredient in Agent Orange).7,8

      Most GMOs are a direct extension of chemical agriculture and are developed and sold by the world’s largest chemical companies. The longterm impacts of these GMOs are unknown. Once released into the environment, these novel organisms cannot be recalled.

    • AMENNNNNN BETTY GIRL!!  THAT WAS A SHOCK, HEART-BREAKER TIME FOR US TOO. THE ATTACK AND LOSS CAME OUT OF NOWHERE. BUT WE PRAYED AND JESUS TOLD TROY AND I TO REBUILD...BETTER, STRONGER, MORE FILLED WITH JUST JESUS AND JESUS WORD, AND HIS TRUTH.

       

      AND ANOTHER MIRACLE, OUR TROY HAD LESS THAN A MONTH TO GET THE NEW SITE CREATED AND UP AND RUNNING. WE PRAYED ABOUT IT, AND TROY WISELY ADVISED, WE FACED SO MUCH TROUBLE RENTING ALL THE APPS, PROGRAMS, PLATFORMS ON GFB AND WE NEVER HAD CONTROL AND WE RELIED ON THE CREATORS TO BE DUE DILIGENT AND MANY JUST DID NOT CARE.

       

      WE WERE A CHRISTIAN SITE, SO WE WERE ALWAYS BOTTOM OF THE LIST, WHEN A PROBLEM TROY DID NOT HAVE ACCESS TO WENT DOWN OR FAILED. SO WE PRAYED ABOUT IT AND AS EXPENSIVE AS IT WAS FOR THE START UP, JESUS MADE A WAY FOR US TO BUY AND OWN EVERYTHING.

       

      AND TROY AND I WERE BLESSED WITH THOSE WHO KNEW WHAT WE WERE DOING AND DONATED THEIR PRAYERS, TIME, LOVE, ENCURAGEMENT, AND DONATIONS TO HELP MAKE IT A REALITY.

       

      AGAINST ALL ODDS, AND THERE WERE MANY, JUST LIKE DAVID AGAINST GOLIATH, JESUS SAW TO IT THAT CSN WAS BORN.  AND OUR JESUS HAS SEEN TO IT THAT WE HAVE BEEN SUSTAINED. AND OUR GFB FAMILY HAD A PLACE TO GO.

       

      CHRISTIAN SOCIAL NETWORK (CSN) IS NOW OUR JESUS FAMILY HOME.

       

      BETTY YOU ARE SO RIGHT, OUR JESUS GAVE US A BETTER PLACE. AND A PLACE FOR ALL OUR GFB FAMILY TO COME TO 24/7. TO FELLOWSHIP TOGETHER, PRAY TOGETHER, LAUGH TOGETHER, STUDY HIS WORD WITHOUT RESTRICTION OR CENSOR AND A PLACE FOR JESUS FAMILY TO ENJOY EACH OTHER.

       

      I LOVE YOU BETTY GIRL AND THANK JESUS FOR BRINGING YOU TO HELP US SHINE OUR JESUS AND HIS WORD AND HIS GOODNESS AND HIS HOPE BRIGHT TO ALL!

    • About 1 year ago I turned on my computer after a 2 month hiatus. I typed in the address to my favorite site where my spiritual family could be found. BUT, they were gone. I typed and retyped but they were no where to be found. My heart was crushed. I'd lost a part of me. But I was reading my email one day and I did something I never do. I checked my spam. Low and behold I had a email from Faith explaning their whereabouts and the reason for the change. I was so elated that I found my family again. And for a year (and counting) I've luaghed with you guys, cried whit you, prayed with you, praised with, and most of all grew closer to our Jesus whith you guys. And I Wouldn't Have It Any Other Way. I THANK OUR JESUS FOR FAITH, TROY AND ALL OF YOU GUYS FOR NOT WALKING AWAY FROM A DREAM, BUT MAKING IT A CHRIST CENTERED MOVEMENT OF FAITH!!!
      HAPPY 1ST YEAR CSN :-V****BIG KISSES AND MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL ... FROM YOUR SISTER IN THE CHI. I LOVE YOU ALL TO LIFE.

    • In Florida , an atheist became incensed over the preparation of Easter and Passover holidays. He decided to contact his lawyer about the discrimination inflicted on atheists by the constant celebrations afforded to Christians and Jews with all their holidays while atheists had no holiday to celebrate.

      The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the long passionate presentation by the lawyer, the Judge banged his gavel and declared, 'Case dismissed!'

      The lawyer immediately stood and objected to the ruling and said,'Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and many other observances. Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah ... yet my client and all other atheists have no such holiday!'

      The judge leaned forward in his chair and simply said, 'Obviously your client is too confused to even know about, much less celebrate his own atheists' holiday!'

      The lawyer pompously said, 'Your Honor, we are unaware of any such holiday for atheists. Just when might that holiday be, your Honor?'

      The judge said, 'Well it comes every year on exactly the same date --- April 1st! Since our calendar sets April 1st as 'April Fools Day,' consider that Psalm 14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, in my opinion, if your client says there is no God, then by scripture, he is a fool, and April 1st is his holiday! Now have a good day and get out of my courtroom!!

      Preface

      Recognizing that the Bible is the very Word of the Living God to man, and understanding the priority of knowing and obeying its truths. CHRISTIAN SOCIAL NETWORK is committed to teaching Scripture with diligence and authority.

      Thus, the central ministry of CHRISTIAN SOCIAL NETWORK (CSN) is the continuous imparting of biblical truth to the people of God that they may become equipped to do the work of shining our Jesus.

      This statement presents our convictions regarding the theological truths of the Bible, built on years of study and teaching. They are the primary doctrines of the Christian faith, and they reflect the heart of CHRISTIAN SOCIAL NETWORK (CSN).



      The Holy Scriptures

      We teach that the Bible is God's written revelation to man, and thus the sixty six books of the Bible given to us by the Holy Spirit constitute the plenary (inspired equally in all parts) Word of God (1 Corinthians 2:7-142 Peter 1:20-21).

      We teach that the Word of God is an objective, propositional revelation (1 Thessalonians 2:131 Corinthians 2:13), verbally inspired in every word (2 Timothy 3:16), absolutely inerrant in the original documents, infallible, and God-breathed. We teach the literal, grammatical-historical interpretation of Scripture which affirms the belief that the opening chapters of Genesis present creation in six literal days (Genesis 1:31Exodus 31:17).

      We teach that the Bible constitutes the only infallible rule of faith and practice (Matthew 5:1824:35;John 10:3516:12-1317:171 Corinthians 2:132 Timothy 3:15-17Hebrews 4:122 Peter 1:20-21).

      We teach that God spoke in His written Word by a process of dual authorship. The Holy Spirit so superintended the human authors that, through their individual personalities and different styles of writing, they composed and recorded God's Word to man (2 Peter 1:20 21) without error in the whole or in the part (Matthew 5:182 Timothy 3:16).

      We teach that, whereas there may be several applications of any given passage of Scripture, there is but one true interpretation. The meaning of Scripture is to be found as one diligently applies the literal grammatical-historical method of interpretation under the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit (John 7:17;16:12-151 Corinthians 2:7-151 John 2:20). It is the responsibility of believers to ascertain carefully the true intent and meaning of Scripture, recognizing that proper application is binding on all generations. Yet the truth of Scripture stands in judgment of men; never do men stand in judgment of it.

      God

      We teach that there is but one living and true God (Deuteronomy 6:4Isaiah 45:5-71 Corinthians 8:4), an infinite, all-knowing Spirit (John 4:24), perfect in all His attributes, one in essence, eternally existing in three Persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:192 Corinthians 13:14)—each equally deserving worship and obedience.

      God the Father

      We teach that God the Father, the first Person of the Trinity, orders and disposes all things according to His own purpose and grace (Psalm 145:8-91 Corinthians 8:6). He is the Creator of all things (Genesis 1:1-31Ephesians 3:9). As the only absolute and omnipotent Ruler in the universe, He is sovereign in creation, providence, and redemption (Psalm 103:19Romans 11:36). His fatherhood involves both His designation within the Trinity and His relationship with mankind. As Creator He is Father to all men (Ephesians 4:6), but He is spiritual Father only to believers (Romans 8:142 Corinthians 6:18). He has decreed for His own glory all things that come to pass (Ephesians 1:11). He continually upholds, directs, and governs all creatures and events (1 Chronicles 29:11). In His sovereignty He is neither author nor approver of sin (Habakkuk 1:13John 8:38-47), nor does He abridge the accountability of moral, intelligent creatures (1 Peter 1:17). He has graciously chosen from eternity past those whom He would have as His own (Ephesians 1:4-6); He saves from sin all who come to Him through Jesus Christ; He adopts as his own all those who come to Him; and He becomes, upon adoption, Father to His own (John 1:12Romans 8:15Galatians 4:5Hebrews 12:5-9).

      God the Son

      We teach that Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Trinity, possesses all the divine excellencies, and in these He is coequal, consubstantial, and coeternal with the Father (John 10:3014:9).

      We teach that God the Father created according to His own will, through His Son, Jesus Christ, by whom all things continue in existence and in operation (John 1:3Colossians 1:15 17Hebrews 1:2).

      We teach that in the incarnation (God becoming man) Christ surrendered only the prerogatives of deity but nothing of the divine essence, either in degree or kind. In His incarnation, the eternally existing second Person of the Trinity accepted all the essential characteristics of humanity and so became the God Man (Philippians 2:5-8Colossians 2:9).

      We teach that Jesus Christ represents humanity and deity in indivisible oneness (Micah 5:2John 5:23;14:9-10Colossians 2:9).

      We teach that our Lord Jesus Christ was virgin born (Isaiah 7:14Matthew 1:2325Luke 1:26 35); that He was God incarnate (John 1:114); and that the purpose of the incarnation was to reveal God, redeem men, and rule over God's kingdom (Psalm 2:7-9Isaiah 9:6John 1:29Philippians 2:9-11Hebrews 7:25-261 Peter 1:18-19).

      We teach that, in the incarnation, the second person of the Trinity laid aside His right to the full prerogatives of coexistence with God and took on an existence appropriate to a servant while never divesting Himself of His divine attributes (Philippians 2:5-8).

      We teach that our Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through the shedding of His blood and sacrificial death on the cross and that His death was voluntary, vicarious, substitutionary, propitiatory, and redemptive (John 10:15Romans 3:24-255:81 Peter 2:24).

      We teach that on the basis of the efficacy of the death of our Lord Jesus Christ, the believing sinner is freed from the punishment, the penalty, the power, and one day the very presence of sin; and that he is declared righteous, given eternal life, and adopted into the family of God (Romans 3:255:8-92 Corinthians 5:14-151 Peter 2:243:18).

      We teach that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead and that He is now ascended to the right hand of the Father, where He now mediates as our Advocate and High Priest (Matthew 28:6Luke 24:38-39Acts 2:30-31Romans 4:258:34Hebrews 7:259:241 John 2:1).

      We teach that in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave, God confirmed the deity of His Son and gave proof that God has accepted the atoning work of Christ on the cross. Jesus' bodily resurrection is also the guarantee of a future resurrection life for all believers (John 5:26-2914:19Romans 1:44:25;6:5-101 Corinthians 15:2023).

      We teach that Jesus Christ will return to receive the church, which is His Body, unto Himself at the rapture, and returning with His church in glory, will establish His millennial kingdom on earth (Acts 1:9-111 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20).

      We teach that the Lord Jesus Christ is the One through whom God will judge all mankind (John 5:22-23):

      1. Believers (1 Corinthians 3:10-152 Corinthians 5:10)
      2. Living inhabitants of the earth at His glorious return (Matthew 25:31-46).
      3. Unbelieving dead at the Great White Throne (Revelation 20:11-15).

      As the Mediator between God and man (1 Timothy 2:5), the Head of His Body the church (Ephesians 1:225:23Colossians 1:18), and the coming universal King, who will reign on the throne of David (Isaiah 9:6Luke 1:31-33), He is the final Judge of all who fail to place their trust in Him as Lord and Savior (Matthew 25:14-46Acts 17:30-31).

      God the Holy Spirit

      We teach that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, eternal, underived, possessing all the attributes of personality and deity, including intellect (1 Corinthians 2:10-13), emotions (Ephesians 4:30), will (1 Corinthians 12:11), eternality (Hebrews 9:14), omnipresence (Psalm 139:7-10), omniscience (Isaiah 40:13-14), omnipotence (Romans 15:13), and truthfulness (John 16:13). In all the divine attributes He is coequal and consubstantial with the Father and the Son (Matthew 28:19Acts 5:3-428:25-261 Corinthians 12:4-62 Corinthians 13:14; and Jeremiah 31:31-34 with Hebrews 10:15-17).

      We teach that it is the work of the Holy Spirit to execute the divine will with relation to all mankind. We recognize His sovereign activity in creation (Genesis 1:2), the incarnation (Matthew 1:18), the written revelation (2 Peter 1:20-21), and the work of salvation (John 3:5-7).

      We teach that the work of the Holy Spirit in this age began at Pentecost when He came from the Father as promised by Christ (John 14:16-1715:26) to initiate and complete the building of the Body of Christ, which is His church (1 Corinthians 12:13). The broad scope of His divine activity includes convicting the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ and transforming believers into the image of Christ (John 16:7-9Acts 1:52:4Romans 8:292 Corinthians 3:18;Ephesians 2:22).

      We teach that the Holy Spirit is the supernatural and sovereign Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:13). The Holy Spirit also indwells, sanctifies, instructs, empowers them for service, and seals them unto the day of redemption (Romans 8:92 Corinthians 3:6;Ephesians 1:13).

      We teach that the Holy Spirit is the divine Teacher, who guided the apostles and prophets into all truth as they committed to writing God's revelation, the Bible (2 Peter 1:19-21). Every believer possesses the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit from the moment of salvation, and it is the duty of all those born of the Spirit to be filled with (controlled by) the Spirit (John 16:13Romans 8:9Ephesians 5:181 John 2:2027).

      We teach that the Holy Spirit administers spiritual gifts to the church. The Holy Spirit glorifies neither Himself nor His gifts by ostentatious displays, but He does glorify Christ by implementing His work of redeeming the lost and building up believers in the most holy faith (John 16:13-14Acts 1:81 Corinthians 12:4-112 Corinthians 3:18).

      We teach, in this respect, that God the Holy Spirit is sovereign in the bestowing of all His gifts for the perfecting of the saints today, and that speaking in tongues and the working of sign miracles in the beginning days of the church were for the purpose of pointing to and authenticating the apostles as revealers of divine truth, and were never intended to be characteristic of the lives of believers (1 Corinthians 12:4-1113:8-102 Corinthians 12:12Ephesians 4:7 12Hebrews 2:1-4).

      Man

      We teach that man was directly and immediately created by God in His image and likeness. Man was created free of sin with a rational nature, intelligence, volition, self determination, and moral responsibility to God (Genesis 2:715-25James 3:9).

      We teach that God's intention in the creation of man was that man should glorify God, enjoy God's fellowship, live his life in the will of God, and by this accomplish God's purpose for man in the world (Isaiah 43:7Colossians 1:16Revelation 4:11).

      We teach that in Adam's sin of disobedience to the revealed will and Word of God, man lost his innocence, incurred the penalty of spiritual and physical death, became subject to the wrath of God, and became inherently corrupt and utterly incapable of choosing or doing that which is acceptable to God apart from divine grace. With no recuperative powers to enable him to recover himself, man is hopelessly lost. Man's salvation is thereby wholly of God's grace through the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ (Genesis 2:16-173:1-19John 3:36Romans 3:236:231 Corinthians 2:14Ephesians 2:1-31 Timothy 2:13-141 John 1:8).

      We teach that, because all men were in Adam, a nature corrupted by Adam's sin has been transmitted to all men of all ages, Jesus Christ being the only exception. All men are thus sinners by nature, by choice, and by divine declaration (Psalm 14:1-3Jeremiah 17:9Romans 3:9-18235:10-12).

      Salvation

      We teach that salvation is wholly of God by grace on the basis of the redemption of Jesus Christ, the merit of His shed blood, and not on the basis of human merit or works (John 1:12Ephesians 1:72:8-101 Peter 1:18-19).

      Regeneration

      We teach that regeneration is a supernatural work of the Holy Spirit by which the divine nature and divine life are given (John 3:3-7Titus 3:5). It is instantaneous and is accomplished solely by the power of the Holy Spirit through the instrumentality of the Word of God (John 5:24) when the repentant sinner, as enabled by the Holy Spirit, responds in faith to the divine provision of salvation. Genuine regeneration is manifested by fruits worthy of repentance as demonstrated in righteous attitudes and conduct. Good works are the proper evidence and fruit of regeneration (1 Corinthians 6:19-20Ephesians 2:10), and will be experienced to the extent that the believer submits to the control of the Holy Spirit in his life through faithful obedience to the Word of God (Ephesians 5:17-21Philippians 2:12bColossians 3:162 Peter 1:4-10). This obedience causes the believer to be increasingly conformed to the image of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 3:18). Such a conformity is climaxed in the believer's glorification at Christ's coming (Romans 8:172 Peter 1:41 John 3:2-3).

      Election

      We teach that election is the act of God by which, before the foundation of the world, He chose in Christ those whom He graciously regenerates, saves, and sanctifies (Romans 8:28-30Ephesians 1:4-112 Thessalonians 2:132 Timothy 2:101 Peter 1:1-2).

      We teach that sovereign election does not contradict or negate the responsibility of man to repent and trust Christ as Savior and Lord (Ezekiel 18:233233:11John 3:18-19365:40Romans 9:22-232 Thessalonians 2:10-12Revelation 22:17). Nevertheless, since sovereign grace includes the means of receiving the gift of salvation as well as the gift itself, sovereign election will result in what God determines. All whom the Father calls to Himself will come in faith and all who come in faith the Father will receive (John 6:37-4044Acts 13:48James 4:8).

      We teach that the unmerited favor that God grants to totally depraved sinners is not related to any initiative of their own part or to God's anticipation of what they might do by their own will, but is solely of His sovereign grace and mercy (Ephesians 1:4-7Titus 3:4-71 Peter 1:2).

      We teach that election should not be looked upon as based merely on abstract sovereignty. God is truly sovereign, but He exercises this sovereignty in harmony with His other attributes, especially His omniscience, justice, holiness, wisdom, grace, and love (Romans 9:11-16). This sovereignty will always exalt the will of God in a manner totally consistent with His character as revealed in the life of our Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 11:25-282 Timothy 1:9).

      Justification

      We teach that justification before God is an act of God (Romans 8:33) by which He declares righteous those who, through faith in Christ, repent of their sins (Luke 13:3Acts 2:383:1911:18Romans 2:4;2 Corinthians 7:10Isaiah 55:6-7) and confess Him as sovereign Lord (Romans 10:9-101 Corinthians 12:32 Corinthians 4:5Philippians 2:11). This righteousness is apart from any virtue or work of man (Romans 3:204:6) and involves the imputation of our sins to Christ (Colossians 2:141 Peter 2:24) and the imputation of Christ's righteousness to us (1 Corinthians 1:302 Corinthians 5:21). By this means God is enabled to "be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus" (Romans 3:26).

      Sanctification

      We teach that every believer is sanctified (set apart) unto God by justification and is therefore declared to be holy and is therefore identified as a saint. This sanctification is positional and instantaneous and should not be confused with progressive sanctification. This sanctification has to do with the believer's standing, not his present walk or condition (Acts 20:321 Corinthians 1:2306:112 Thessalonians 2:13;Hebrews 2:113:110:101413:121 Peter 1:2).

      We teach that there is also, by the work of the Holy Spirit, a progressive sanctification by which the state of the believer is brought closer to the standing the believer positionally enjoys through justification. Through obedience to the Word of God and the empowering of the Holy Spirit, the believer is able to live a life of increasing holiness in conformity to the will of God, becoming more and more like our Lord Jesus Christ (John 17:17,19Romans 6:1-222 Corinthians 3:181 Thessalonians 4:3-45:23).

      In this respect, we teach that every saved person is involved in a daily conflict—the new creation in Christ doing battle against the flesh—but adequate provision is made for victory through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. The struggle nevertheless stays with the believer all through this earthly life and is never completely ended. All claims to the eradication of sin in this life are unscriptural. Eradication of sin is not possible, but the Holy Spirit does provide for victory over sin (Galatians 5:16-25Ephesians 4:22-24;Philippians 3:12Colossians 3:9-101 Peter 1:14-161 John 3:5-9).

      Security

      We teach that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God's power and are thus secure in Christ forever (John 5:246:37-4010:27-30Romans 5:9-108:131-391 Corinthians 1:4-8Ephesians 4:30Hebrews 7:2513:51 Peter 1:5Jude 24).

      We teach that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God's Word, which, however, clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion for sinful living and carnality (Romans 6:15-2213:13-14Galatians 5:1325-26Titus 2:11-14).

      Separation

      We teach that separation from sin is clearly called for throughout the Old and New Testaments, and that the Scriptures clearly indicate that in the last days apostasy and worldliness shall increase (2 Corinthians 6:14-7:12 Timothy 3:1-5).

      We teach that out of deep gratitude for the undeserved grace of God granted to us, and because our glorious God is so worthy of our total consecration, all the saved should live in such a manner as to demonstrate our adoring love to God and so as not to bring reproach upon our Lord and Savior. We also teach that separation from all religious apostasy and worldly and sinful practices is commanded of us by God (Romans 12:1-21 Corinthians 5:9-132 Corinthians 6:14-7:11 John 2:15-172 John 9-11).

      We teach that believers should be separated unto our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Thessalonians 1:11-12;Hebrews 12:1-2) and affirm that the Christian life is a life of obedient righteousness that reflects the teaching of the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:2-12) and a continual pursuit of holiness (Romans 12:1-22 Corinthians 7:1Hebrews 12:14Titus 2:11-141 John 3:1-10).

      The Church

      We teach that all who place their faith in Jesus Christ are immediately placed by the Holy Spirit into one united spiritual Body, the church (1 Corinthians 12:12-13), the bride of Christ (2 Corinthians 11:2;Ephesians 5:23-32Revelation 19:7-8), of which Christ is the Head (Ephesians 1:224:15Colossians 1:18).

      We teach that the formation of the church, the Body of Christ, began on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-2138-47) and will be completed at the coming of Christ for His own at the rapture (1 Corinthians 15:51-521 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

      We teach that the church is thus a unique spiritual organism designed by Christ, made up of all born-again believers in this present age (Ephesians 2:11-3:6). The church is distinct from Israel (1 Corinthians 10:32), a mystery not revealed until this age (Ephesians 3:1-65:32).

      We teach that the establishment and continuity of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures (Acts 14:232720:1728Galatians 1:2Philippians 1:11 Thessalonians 1:12 Thessalonians 1:1) and that the members of the one spiritual Body are directed to associate themselves together in local assemblies (1 Corinthians 11:18-20Hebrews 10:25).

      We teach that the one supreme authority for the church is Christ (1 Corinthians 11:3Ephesians 1:22;Colossians 1:18) and that church leadership, gifts, order, discipline, and worship are all appointed through His sovereignty as found in the Scriptures. The biblically designated officers serving under Christ and over the assembly are elders (also called bishops, pastors, and pastor teachers; Acts 20:28;Ephesians 4:11) and deacons, both of whom must meet biblical qualifications (1 Timothy 3:1-13Titus 1:5-91 Peter 5:1-5).

      We teach that these leaders lead or rule as servants of Christ (1 Timothy 5:17-22) and have His authority in directing the church. The congregation is to submit to their leadership (Hebrews 13:717).

      We teach the importance of discipleship (Matthew 28:19-202 Timothy 2:2), mutual accountability of all believers to each other (Matthew 18:5-14), as well as the need for discipline of sinning members of the congregation in accord with the standards of Scripture (Matthew 18:15-22Acts 5:1-111 Corinthians 5:1-132 Thessalonians 3:6-151 Timothy 1:19-20Titus 1:10-16).

      We teach the autonomy of the local church, free from any external authority or control, with the right of self-government and freedom from the interference of any hierarchy of individuals or organizations (Titus 1:5). We teach that it is scriptural for true churches to cooperate with each other for the presentation and propagation of the faith. Each local church, however, through its elders and their interpretation and application of Scripture, should be the sole judge of the measure and method of its cooperation. The elders should determine all other matters of membership, policy, discipline, benevolence, and government as well (Acts 15:19-3120:281 Corinthians 5:4-7131 Peter 5:1-4).

      We teach that the purpose of the church is to glorify God (Ephesians 3:21) by building itself up in the faith (Ephesians 4:13-16), by instruction of the Word (2 Timothy 2:2153:16-17), by fellowship (Acts 2:471 John 1:3), by keeping the ordinances (Luke 22:19Acts 2:38-42) and by advancing and communicating the gospel to the entire world (Matthew 28:19Acts 1:82:42).

      We teach the calling of all saints to the work of service (1 Corinthians 15:58Ephesians 4:12Revelation 22:12).

      We teach the need of the church to cooperate with God as He accomplishes His purpose in the world. To that end, He gives the church spiritual gifts. He gives men chosen for the purpose of equipping the saints for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:7-12), and He also gives unique and special spiritual abilities to each member of the Body of Christ (Romans 12:5-81 Corinthians 12:4-311 Peter 4:10-11).

      We teach that there were two kinds of gifts given the early church: miraculous gifts of divine revelation and healing, given temporarily in the apostolic era for the purpose of confirming the authenticity of the apostles' message (Hebrews 2:3-42 Corinthians 12:12); and ministering gifts, given to equip believers for edifying one another. With the New Testament revelation now complete, Scripture becomes the sole test of the authenticity of a man's message, and confirming gifts of a miraculous nature are no longer necessary to validate a man or his message (1 Corinthians 13:8-12). Miraculous gifts can even be counterfeited by Satan so as to deceive even believers (1 Corinthians 13:13-14:12Revelation 13:13-14). The only gifts in operation today are those nonrevelatory equipping gifts given for edification (Romans 12:6-8).

      We teach that no one possesses the gift of healing today, but that God does hear and answer the prayer of faith and will answer in accordance with His own perfect will for the sick, suffering, and afflicted (Luke 18:1-6John 5:7-92 Corinthians 12:6-10James 5:13-161 John 5:14-15).

      We teach that two ordinances have been committed to the local church: baptism and the Lord's Supper (Acts 2:38-42). Christian baptism by immersion (Acts 8:36-39) is the solemn and beautiful testimony of a believer showing forth his faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Savior, and his union with Him in death to sin and resurrection to a new life (Romans 6:1-11). It is also a sign of fellowship and identification with the visible Body of Christ (Acts 2:41-42).

      We teach that the Lord's Supper is the commemoration and proclamation of His death until He comes, and should be always preceded by solemn self examination (1 Corinthians 11:28-32). We also teach that, whereas the elements of Communion are only representative of the flesh and blood of Christ, the Lord's Supper is nevertheless an actual communion with the risen Christ who indwells every believer, and so is present, fellowshipping with His people (1 Corinthians 10:16).

      Angels

      Holy Angels

      We teach that angels are created beings and are therefore not to be worshiped. Although they are a higher order of creation than man, they are created to serve God and to worship Him (Luke 2:9-14;Hebrews 1:6-7142:6-7Revelation 5:11-1419:1022:9).

      Fallen Angels

      We teach that Satan is a created angel and the author of sin. He incurred the judgment of God by rebelling against his Creator (Isaiah 14:12-17Ezekiel 28:11-19), by taking numerous angels with him in his fall (Matthew 25:41Revelation 12:1-14), and by introducing sin into the human race by his temptation of Eve (Genesis 3:1-15).

      We teach that Satan is the open and declared enemy of God and man (Isaiah 14:13-14Matthew 4:1-11;Revelation 12:9-10); that he is the prince of this world, who has been defeated through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 16:20); and that he shall be eternally punished in the lake of fire (Isaiah 14:12-17Ezekiel 28:11-19Matthew 25:41Revelation 20:10).

      Last Things (Eschatology)

      Death

      We teach that physical death involves no loss of our immaterial consciousness (Revelation 6:9-11), that the soul of the redeemed passes immediately into the presence of Christ (Luke 23:43Philippians 1:232 Corinthians 5:8), that there is a separation of soul and body (Philippians 1:21-24), and that, for the redeemed, such separation will continue until the rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17), which initiates the first resurrection (Revelation 20:4-6), when our soul and body will be reunited to be glorified forever with our Lord (Philippians 3:211 Corinthians 15:35-4450-54). Until that time, the souls of the redeemed in Christ remain in joyful fellowship with our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:8).

      We teach the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life (John 6:39Romans 8:10-1119-23;2 Corinthians 4:14), and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment (Daniel 12:2John 5:29;Revelation 20:13-15).

      We teach that the souls of the unsaved at death are kept under punishment until the second resurrection (Luke 16:19-26Revelation 20:13-15), when the soul and the resurrection body will be united (John 5:28-29). They shall then appear at the Great White Throne Judgment (Revelation 20:11-15) and shall be cast into hell, the lake of fire (Matthew 25:41-46), cut off from the life of God forever (Daniel 12:2;Matthew 25:41-462 Thessalonians 1:7-9).

      The Rapture of the Church

      We teach the personal, bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ before the seven-year tribulation (1 Thessalonians 4:16Titus 2:13) to translate His church from this earth (John 14:1-31 Corinthians 15:51-531 Thessalonians 4:15-5:11) and, between this event and His glorious return with His saints, to reward believers according to their works (1 Corinthians 3:11-152 Corinthians 5:10).

      The Tribulation Period

      We teach that immediately following the removal of the church from the earth (John 14:1-31 Thessalonians 4:13-18) the righteous judgments of God will be poured out upon an unbelieving world (

      Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
      I will say of the Lord“He is my refuge and my fortress;
      My God, in Him I will trust.”

    • Hello CHRISTIAN SOCIAL NETWORK FAMILY...
       
      After fielding an assortment of emails of EITHER complaints, queries, and/or demands...
      I thought it would be HELPFUL to ANSWER them PUBLICLY...so our CSN Family Old and New would UNDERSTAND CSN Better.
       
       
      IS CSN like FB, Christian Mingle, Christian Chat...etc. etc.?????
       
      NO...we are NOTHING like them.
       
      WE STRIVE to make EACH member FEEL like they are part of CSN and hopefully Jesus Christ's Eternal Family.
       
      WE STRIVE to learn your names.
      WE DO READ your profiles.
      WE DO strive to offer what is MOST sought after on the Christian social Internet.
       
      And that is?
       
      A place where you, your teens, your family can SAFELY come to visit/participate/fellowship in any and all things that HAVE as a foundation learning more about, finding, and enjoying Jesus Christ and His Word, without having to wade through the secular, fad-driven, temporal garbage that bombards and pollutes most EVERY other site on the Internet.
       
      We DO offer FOUR Bible Studies EACH week.
      We DO offer ONE Prayer Meeting EACH week.
      We DO offer TWO Praise and Worship Music Video nights EACH week (FRIDAY & SATURDAY).

      We DO offer our own CSN TV Channel. 
       
      We DO seek to protect our CSN Family.
      So we DO keep your info, your posts, your photos shielded from the rest of the Internet.
      We do NOT share them NOR allow any NON members access to you.
       
       
       
       
      Now to ADDRESS/ANSWER the complaints...
       
      I come into CSN and say Hi on the Front Page but few respond...
      I come into CSN and create a group and few respond after joining...
      I come into CSN and post Bible verses and few respond...
      I join CSN and have few friend requests...
       
      KNOW this...your complaints ARE heard and they ARE researched...
       
      And for ALL the above...HERE are the conclusions WE have found.
       
      You get OUT of CSN what you are WILLING to put into it.
       
      MOST do NOT respond to comments OFFERED them.
      MOST do NOT respond to welcomes OFFERED them.
      MOST do NOT respond to friend invites OFFERED them.
      MOST do NOT respond to emails SENT to them.
      MOST do NOT create more discussions nor answer posts in their OWN created groups.
      MOST do NOT comment on ANY OTHER daily postings of OTHER members.
      MOST do NOT join in GROUPS.
      MOST do NOT attend Bible Studies, Prayer Meetings, or anything else.
      MOST do NOT attempt to befriend others.
      MOST join a group and are NEVER heard from or seen again.
      MOST post their promise to attend CSN weekly offerings/events and do NOT show up.
      MOST join post a DIRE prayer request then sign out, never to be heard from again, until ANOTHER crisis arises, then they come back into CSN and post another prayer request because they KNOW CSN Prayer Warriors ARE faithful/diligent.
       
      Now CSN gives EVERY member the ABSOLUTE right to participate or not.
      Participation is NOT mandatory.
      Fellowship is NOT mandatory.
       
      But the REVERSE is ALSO true, if you are NOT willing to participate, fellowship, get involved, encourage others, comment on THEIR posts, welcome them back, attend what you say you will, nor become a part of the CSN Family...you ALSO have NO RIGHT to complain.
       
      The Golden Rule APPLIES within CSN...
      "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!"
       
       
      Stay blessed in Jesus!

    • THE NATIONAL SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION INVITED HILLARY CLINTON TO SPEAK TO THEM....AND HER SPEECH WAS PEPPERED WITH PIECEMEAL BITS OF SCRIPTURE THAT SHE OBVIOUSLY DID NOT UNDERSTAND THE ENTIRE FOCUS, BECAUSE IF SHE HAD REALLY KNOWN HER BIBLE AND OUR ALMIGHTY GOD SHE WOULD NOT HAVE USED THOSE SCRIPTURES. OBVIOUSLY HER SPEECH WRITER DOES NOT KNOW JESUS OR HIS WORD EITHER, AND WORSE SHE FOCUSED ON THE WISDOMS AND ADAGES OF WORLDLY ICONS.

       

      AND SHE PROCLAIMED HERSELF TO BE A CHRISTIAN, THOUGH SHE DOES NOT FEEL ONES FAITH SHOULD DIRECT AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE IN GOVERNMENT.  SHE IS SO SELF DECEIVED....YOU CAN NOT BE A CHRISTIAN AND VOTE FOR ABORTION, HARVESTING UNBORN BABY PARTS FOR RESEACH, DESTRUCTION OF THE FAMILY, ALTERNATIVE SEXUAL PREFERENCES, DESTRUCTION OF THE MILITARY...AND OPEN THE DOOR TO TERRORISTS WITHOUT THE IMMIGRATION PROTOCOLS AND LAWS BEING ABIDED BY...

       

      I WAS SHOCKED THAT THOSE SUPPOSED CHRISTIANS AT THE NATIONAL BAPTIST CONVENTION DID NOT WALK OUT ON HER AFTER 3 MINUTES....SAD...SAD....BUT JESUS SAID THERE WOULD BE A GREAT FALLING AWAY FROM HIS TRUTH, HIS WORD, AND HIS WISDOM...THAT THOSE WHO PROCLAIM TO BE CHRISTIANS WOULD NO LONGER TOLERATE SOUND BIBLICAL DOCTRINE...AND THAT IS WHAT I SAW....FAITHLESS SELF-DECEIVED  PEOPLE WHO DO NOT REALLY KNOW OUR JESUS OR HIS WORD AT THAT CONVENTION....!!!!

       

    • August 30, 2016 10:15 PM EDT
    • YOU ARE MOST WELCOME TROY, CINDY LOU, DALTON, & WILL D!!!!

    • August 25, 2016 3:23 PM EDT
    • Amen Faithy it is our Chrsitian Duty to vote and srand up for Godly Christian values in our country no more sittng back and not standing up against the devil and his evil tricks this is what is wrong with America we do not stand up for  Jesus and his word.

       

      The devil was given alot of foot room when we did not stand up to Madaline Ohar years back and say we wnat prayer and the word of God to stay in schools !

       

       now it is It is time to say yes to Jesus and no to sin and evil wickeness when we do not vote it gives the devil more room to so his evil work as for not knowing who to pray for i was thinking about voteing for Holary a few years back but prayed to Jesus for who would be the right person for the job and to reveal any thing not good about her and Jesus did just that he let me and others she just how evil and cooked she is and i say she is not the choice he would want me as a Christian to vote for amen thank you for this post Faithy love it 

    • August 25, 2016 3:13 PM EDT
    • EVERY QUESTION COMMON TO MAN AND LIFE IS ANSWERED IN THE BIBLE.

       

      I READ AN ARTICLE BY A SUPPOSED CHRISTIAN WHO SAID, "CHRISTIANS IN THIS COUNTRY, MYSELF INCLUDED, DO NOT KNOW WHO TO VOTE FOR."  THIS SADDENED AND SHOCKED ME.  THE LOST AND BLIND WORLD DO NOT KNOW HOW TO VOTE...BUT CHRISTIANS SHOULD HAVE NO PROBLEM IN THE VOTING BOOTH.  JESUS TELLS US HOW TO VOTE.

       

      1. VOTE FOR A GOD FEARING LEADER...

       

      THE BIBLE SHOWS US AND TELLS US ((NO)) LEADER CHOSEN BY GOD WAS PERFECT...SO FORGET PERFECTION...IT IS NOT POSSIBLE IN THIS LIFE.

       

      EVEN KING DAVID, WHOM GOD CALLED A MAN AFTER GOD'S OWN HEART, WAS BY NO MEANS PERFECT. HE SINNED. HE HAD FLAWS, BUT HE BELIEVED IN AND TRUSTED AND LOOKED TO ALMIGHTY GOD. HE WAS STRONG AND STOOD AGAINST THE EVIL.  HE WAS COMPASSIONATE. HE WAS A SHEPHERD, WHO LED, WHO GOT IN FRONT OF HIS FLOCK AND WENT TO MEET THE WOLVES AND THE ENEMY. HE WAS FIERCELY PROTECTIVE OF HIS NATION. HE RAISED UP AND SUPPORTED AND SUPPLIED A STRONG MIGHTY MEN TO HELP HIM PROTECT AND DEFEND HIS NATION. HE VALUED LIFE.  HE VALUED PEOPLE, BE THEY MEN, WOMEN, ELDERLY, OR CHILDREN. HE SOUGHT PEACE, BUT STOOD AGAINST EVIL AND THE ENEMIES OF ALMIGHTY GOD AND HIS NATION. HE MADE POLICY THAT PROTECTED AS WELL AS AIDED IN PROSPERING HIS PEOPLE AND HIS NATION.

       

       

      2. VOTE FOR ONE WHO ABIDES BY GOD'S LAWS & HIS PROTECTIVE WILL.

       

      A. ABORTION IS AN ABOMINATION TO GOD.

      ABORTION IS MURDER IN THE EYES OF GOD...NO TRUE CHRISTIAN LEADER WILL STAND, SUPPORT, AND ENCOURAGE THE DESTRUCTION OF THE MOST INNOCENT, AND IN TURN DESTROY THE HEARTS AND LIVES OF THOSE WOMEN WHO BECOME PREGNANT. NO CHRISTIAN LEADER WILL ENCOURAGE THE STERILIZATION OF PEOPLE AS AN UJNWANTED PREGNANCY PREVENTATIVE.

       

      B. SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN.

       

      THAT IS THE WAY GOD CREATED MANKIND AND NATURE.  ONLY MANKIND HAS PERVERTED HIS LAWS AND HIS WILL FOR HIS CREATION. NO TRUE CHRISTIAN WILL VOTE FOR THE REMOVAL AND RE-DEFINING THE DEFINITION OF THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE.  NO TRUE CHRISTIAN WILL SAY OR SUPPORT THE IDEA THAT SEXUAL PREFERENCES AND ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLES ARE THE WILL AND THE WAY OF GOD AND SHOW A CHRISTIAN TO BE PROGRESSIVE AND TOLERANT. WE ARE TO HATE THE SIN BUT NOT THE SINNER...BUT WE ARE TO GIVE THEM GOD'S TRUTH IN LOVE, FOR WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE...THEIR VERY SOULS AND ETERNITY HINGE ON THEIR KNOWING THE TRUTH OF THEIR CHOICES AND THE NATURAL AND ETERNAL CONSEQUENCES OF THEM.

       

      C. SUPPORT OF ISRAEL.

       

      IT IS GOD'S COMMAND, THEN AND NOW, IF A NATION WISHES TO BE BLESSED THEY WILL PRAY FOR AND SUPPORT THE NATION OF ISRAEL. NO TRUE CHRISTIAN WOULD DARE TURN THEIR BACK ON ISRAEL WHO HAS PROVEN TO BE A STAUNCH, STEADFAST ALLY OF THE USA. NO TRUE CHRISTIAN WOULD SIDE WITH EVIL ENEMY NATIONS THAT SEEK THE UTTER DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL, WHOM THEY CALL "THE LITTLE SATAN" AND THEY CALL THE USA, "THE BIG SATAN".

       

      D. MILITARY AND FIRST RESPONDERS...

       

      GOD CREATED THE MILITARY AND FIRST RESPONDERS. NO TRUE CHRISTIAN WILL SEEK THE DESTRUCTION, REDUCTION, AND TO TIE THE HANDS OF THOSE MEN AND WOMEN WHO STAND AS WATCHMEN, HUMAN SHIELDS, AND FACE AND DEFEND AND PROTECT US FROM THE VERY PRESENT AND GROWING EVIL GLOBALLY.

       

      E. IMMIGRANTS...

       

      GOD SET DOWN RULES FOR THE NATION ABOUT RECEIVING AND ALLOWING IMMIGRANTS, REFUGEES, AND ALIENS TO ENTER AND LIVE WITHIN HIS LANDS.  GOD CREATED CHECKS AND BALANCES FOR MANKIND. GOD NEVER ENCOURAGED, ASKED, OR ALLOWED HIS PEOPLE TO BLINDLY THROW OPEN THEIR BORDERS TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE WITHOUT THOSE CHECKS AND BALANCES.  THIS COUNTRY HAS LEGAL IMMIGRATION STATUTES AND LAWS AND RULES GOVERNING IMMIGRATION AND THOSE RULES, LAWS, AND STATUTES ARE THERE TO PROTECT US.

      IMMIGRANTS HAD TO AGREE TO ABIDE BY THOSE RULES AND FOLLOW THE STEPS NECESSARY TO BECOME CITIZENS OF HIS PEOPLES AND HIS NATIONS.

      IMMIGRANTS WERE EXPECTED TO ABIDE BY THE LAWS OF THE NATION.

      IMMIGRANTS WERE EXPECTED TO WORK AND EARN THEIR WAY.

      IMMIGRANTS WERE NOT ALLOWED TO LIVE OFF OF GOD'S LANDS AND HIS PEOPLES.

      IMIGRANTS WERE REQUIRED TO LEARN THE LANGUAGE OF GOD'S PEOPLE AND HIS NATIONS.

      IMMIGRANTS WERE EXPECTED TO UPHOLD THE LIBERTIES, FREEDOMS AND RIGHTS OF GOD'S PEOPLE AND HIS NATIONS.

      NO IMMIGRANT WAS ALLOWED TO REMAIN AND LIFE AND ABIDE AND PROSPER AMONG GOD'S PEOPLE AND HIS NATIONS WITHOUT MEETING. ABIDING BY, AND FOLLOWING THE RULES AND LAWS GOVERNING ALL.

       

      F. ALLIANCES WITH ENEMY FOREIGN NATIONS

       

      ALMIGHTY GOD DID NOT SUPPORT OR ENCOURAGE SUPPORT, AID, ASSISTANCE, OR TOLERANCE OF ENEMY FOREIGN NATIONS. HE WARRED AGAINST THEM. HE DID NOT WANT HIS PEOPLE AND HIS NATION TO SIT AT THE TABLES OF THE WICKED.  HE DID NOT WANT HIS PEOPLES OR HIS NATIONS TO HELP THEM AT ALL. ALL THROUGH THE BIBLE HISTORY ANY LEADER WHO SOUGHT TO MAKE CONCESSIONS, PEACE TREATIES, AND GIVE AID AND SUPPORT TO ENEMY NATIONS AND PEOPLES SAW THEY THEMSELVES DESTROYED.

       

      G. FREEDOM OF RELIGION IN PUBLIC AND IN PRIVATE

       

      GOD ALMIGHTY COMMANDED THAT HIS PEOPLE AND HIS NATIONS BE FREE TO WORSHIP HIM AT ALL TIMES. THAT THEY BE ALLOWED TO WORSHIP HIM, TO PRAY AND SEEK HIS FACE, AND CARRY WITH THEM THE TESTAMENTS AND TRUTHS OF HIS WORD WITHOUT FEAR OF PERSECUTION OR EXCLUSON.  NO TRUE CHRISTIAN LEADER WILL EVER SUPPORT, DEFEND, AND ENCOURAGE THE REMOVAL, THE RESTRICTION OF CHRISTIANS AND THEIR FAMILIES AND THEIR CHILDREN FROM WALKING OUT THEIR FAITH AND THEIR CHURCHES FROM PREACHING THE TRUTH AND DISPLAYING THAT TRUTH.

       

      H. PARENTING

       

      NO TRUE CHRISTIAN LEADER BELIEVES OR SUPPORTS OR ENCOURAGES THE GOVERNMENT OR THE VILLIAGE MENTALITY OF RAISING AND TRAINING UP AND EDUCATION OF ITS CHILDREN. THAT IS SOLELY THE GOD COMMANDED AND GOD GIVEN REQUIREMENT OF PARENTS. GOD COMMANDED THE FATHERS AND MOTHERS TO RAISE THEIR CHILDREN UP IN THE ADMONITION OF THE LORD. GOVERNMENT, AGENCIES, NOR ORGANIZATIONS WERE EVER ALLOWED TO HAVE PRIMARY RIGHTS OR SUPERIOR RIGHTS TO THAT.

       

      I. THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ARE VALID THEN AND NOW.

      NO TRUE CHRISTIAN BELIEVES THEM TO BE ANTIQUATED TODAY. OR THAT THEY ARE ONLY AN OUTLINE FOR LAW MAKERS AND LAW GIVERS. THE 10 COMMANDMENTS WERE CREATED TO TRAIN UP AND TEACH HIS WILL AND HIS GUIDANCE FOR THEIR LIVES.  THE LAWS WERE CREATED TO PROTECT THOSE WHO ABIDE BY THEM, AND TO WARN AND PROSECUTE THOSE WHO REJECTED THEM AND DISOBEYED THEM.

       

      J. THE JUDICAL SYSTEM AND JUDGES.

      GOD CREATED THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM AND JUDGES.

       

      THEY WERE THEN AND NOW, TO ONLY UPHOLD THE LAWS AND MAKE DECISIONS ACCORDING TO THOSE LAWS. THEY WERE NOT TO RE-WRITE THEM, RE-INTERPRET THEM, DISMISS THEM, OR CHOOSE TO JUDGE AND RULE FROM THEIR OWN IDEOLOGIES, BUT BY THE LAWS GOD GAVE THEM.  NO TRUE CHRISTIAN LEADER IS GOING TO NOMINATE, SUPPORT, OR PUT ON THE BENCH ANYONE WHO, BY THEIR LEGAL LEGACY, CHOOSES TO DISMISS THE LAWS, OVER RULE THE LAWS, AND NOT ABIDE BY THEM, AND BE IN EFFECT ANTI-AMERICAN AND AGAINST WE THE PEOPLE.

       

      K. TRADE WITH ENEMY FOREIGN NATIONS.

       

      GOD ALMIGHTY COMMANDED HIS PEOPLES AND HIS NATIONS TO HAVE NO TRADE WITH ENEMY STATES.

      THEY WERE NOT ALLOWED TO LIVE WITHIN HIS NATIONS, OR BE ABSORBED BY HIS PEOPLE. THEY WERE NOT TO BE TRUSTED, TRADED WITH, SUPPORTED, NOR TO MAKE POLITICAL ALLIANCES OR INTERNATIONAL TRADE AGREEMENTS WITH THOSE WHO WERE BY THEIR VERY NATURE, DESIGN, AND INTENT TO SEEK TO DESTROY HIS PEOPLES AND HIS NATIONS.

       

       

      LATEST DOCUMENTATION STATES THAT THE USA IS 75% CHRISTIAN.

       

      IF TRUE, THAT 75% HAS BEEN SILENT AND TOLERANT AND APATHETIC TO THE POINT OF DESTRUCTION.

       

      IF THE JESUS LOVING, FOLLOWING AND ABIDING CHRISTIANS IN THIS NATION...STOOD UP...AND VOTED...THIS NATION WOULD BE TURNED AROUND OVERNIGHT.  ALMIGHTY GOD EXPECTS US TO PRAY, TO SEEK HIS FACE AND READ HIS WORD...BUT HE ALSO EXPECTS US TO STAND AND TO SPEAK OUT AND TO VOTE HIS WILL AND HIS WAY.

       

      THIS NATION IS AT THE CROSSROADS.

       

      WE WILL EITHER STAND UP AND SEE THIS NATION TURNED AROUND AND SUSTAINED BY GOD UNTIL THE RAPTURE TAKES HIS PEOPLE, HIS FAMILY, HIS CHILDREN, WHO BELIEVE IN HIS SON,  FROM IT AND THE TRIBULATION, THE WRATH OF GOD IS POURED OUT ON THE REJECTING LOST WORLD.

       

      OR THIS NATION WILL BE DESTROYED AND WILL BECOME NO LIGHT TO THE WORLD AS JESUS CREATED AND INTENDED HER TO BE.

       

      THE DECISION DOES IN FACT REST ON THE TRUE, BIBLE BELIEVING, GOD-FEARING CHRISTIANS IN THIS COUNTRY.

       

      SILENCE AND APATHY ARE DESTRUCTIVE.

       

      EVERY VOICE AND EVERY VOTE DOES COUNT.

       

      ALMIGHTY GOD EXPECTS US TO STAND AND TO VOTE.

       

      IF WE FAIL TO DO SO, WE HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME BUT OURSELVES.

    • Thank you I needed to read this and I know in my heart this was from The Lord to me but not just me for everyone that cares to read it thank you.

    • June 21, 2016 8:54 PM EDT
    • To My precious child:

      Because I knew even before I created the earth that you would accept My love for you, and that you would seek to know Me thus…

      In the beginning I created the heavens and the earth. Then at the right time and in the right place I created you. I created your inner most being, I created every part of you, I knit you together in your mother's womb. You were carefully and wonderfully made; my works are wonderful, and you My precious child are my work. My eyes saw your unformed body. All the days planned for you were written in my book before one of them came to be. How precious are my thoughts for you, How great is the number of them! If you were to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.

      Listen to me, My precious child; I created you and have cared for you since before you were born. I will be your God throughout your lifetime, until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you. I will carry you in my arms, holding you close to my heart. For I know the plans that I have for you plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

      My precious child there are some times of suffering in your life. But the temporary suffering of this life does not compare to the glory that shall be revealed in you. Know this that I am with you and I will help you. Your help comes from me, I am the God who created the heavens and the earth, and the one who created you. I will never leave you, I will never reject you. When your parents fail you I will pick you up, hold you close, and adopt you. Nothing can ever separate you from my love for you. When you are in trouble and distress my love is with you. When you are persecuted my love is with you. When you are hungry and cold and naked my love is with you, I am always with you. When you are in danger and threatened with death my love is with you, I will be with you forever.

      My precious child know that nothing can separate you from my love, no matter how high you go, no matter how deep you sink, nothing in life and not even death can separate you from Me, and My love for you. No demon or any other power in hell can separate you from my love. My love for you is revealed through Christ Jesus your Lord. In all things and every situation you will have victory, you will conquer, because the victory of Christ Jesus is your victory.

      But now, My precious child, I the LORD, who created you and formed you, says: Do not be afraid, for I have purchased you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, they will not over flow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned. I command you to be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid; do not be dismayed, for I, the LORD your God will be with you everywhere you go.

      My precious child, know that everything will work together for your good, because you love me. You have been called according to my purpose. For I knew you before you were born and I predestined you to be conformed to the likeness of my Son, Jesus Christ. This is your destiny, and this is your purpose, that you become one with my Son Jesus, and thus one with me. I created you in my image so that you and I can express love to each other. The most intimate relationship you can have is with me because you and I are becoming one. You and your brothers and sisters that believe in me are becoming one with Jesus, and thus one with me. You in me, and me in you, together, unified by my love for you. You were designed for this purpose, nothing else will ever satisfy your deepest needs, your deepest desires, only I can. Because you seek to know me I satisfy your heart with love, joy, and peace that only I can give you.

      My precious child if you should forget me, and enter into sin, and not turn back to Me on your own then I will punish you. Because your sin will separate you from feeling My presence, and My influence, and I want you to return to your first love, the One who loves you. I the Lord discipline those I love, and I punish everyone who I accept as my child. Just as a good Father disciplines His children to turn them away from a dangerous path, so I shall discipline you for your good, that you may share in My holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

      My precious child, When you confess your sins, I am faithful and just and will forgive you of your sins and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. In repentance and resting in Me is your salvation, in quietness and trusting Me is your strength. I will create in you a clean heart and renew a right spirit within you. I will not send you away from My presence, and I will not take My Holy Spirit from you. I will restore again the joy of your salvation, and make you willing to obey Me. Then you will teach My ways to sinners, and they will return to Me also. Humble yourself, therefore, under My mighty hand, that I may lift you up at the right time.

      My precious child do not forget all my benefits, I forgive all your sins and heal all your diseases, I rescue your life from the pit of destruction and crown you with love and compassion. I satisfy your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles. I The LORD work righteousness and justice for all the oppressed; I The LORD am compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. I will not always accuse, nor will I harbor my anger forever; I do not treat you as your sins deserve or repay you according to your iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is My love for you because you fear Me; as far as the east is from the west, so far have I removed your transgressions from you.

      My precious child, call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know. Always pray to Me about your every concern, pray from your mouth and pray from your heart, I hear every thought that you think. Everything that you care about, I care about also because it concerns you. Cast all your cares and anxiety on Me because I love you. Trust in Me, the LORD YOUR GOD, with all your heart, do not depend on your own understanding; In everything acknowledge Me, And I will direct your paths. Do not worry about anything, but in everything big or small, by prayer, with thanksgiving, present your requests to Me, the Most High God. And I will give you My peace in your heart, peace that is beyond all human understanding, and it will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus. Always be joyful. Keep on praying always. No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is My will for you because you belong to Me.

      My precious child, Study My Book of law and truth, the Holy Bible, do not let My words depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. My words are Spirit and they are Life. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you will, and it will be given you. For the word of God is living and powerful. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. The most important thing you will ever own is your Bible because it gives you knowledge of Me, The Most High God. It makes the poor rich, it gives hope to the hopeless, faith to the fearful, food to the hungry, water to the thirsty, love to the despised, comfort to the lonely, freedom to the prisoner, health to the sick, light in the darkness, and life to the dying.

      My precious child I have set up circumstances and situations in your life to cause you to seek Me and find Me. I desire that you know Me. I am The Lord your God, full of compassion, and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But My precious child glory in this, That you understand and know Me, That I am the LORD, exercising compassion, lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight and take pleasure.

      All things are created for My pleasure and My pleasure is to show forth loving compassion. I have compassion on the poor and needy, and I am a Father to the fatherless, I help them, and I defend them. Far below Me are the heavens and the earth, I stoop to look down, and I lift the poor from the dirt and the needy from the garbage dump and I set them among princes. My precious child I want you to do these things also, have compassion on the poor and needy and help them, this is what it means to know Me. For I am Love, and when you live in love, you live in Me, and I live in you. Loving compassion is good, and this is what I require from you, to do what is right, to love compassion, and to walk humbly with your God.

      As a father has compassion on his children, so I your LORD have compassion on you because you fear Me; for I know how you were formed, I remember that you are dust. Forever and ever My love is with you because you fear Me, and My righteousness with your children's children; with those who keep My covenant and remember to obey My laws. My law is to love. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments all of My laws are based. When you walk in love you are obeying all My laws. When you walk in Love you are walking in My Holy Spirit for I AM LOVE!

      My precious child come and live in My shelter, in the protection of the Most High God, you will find rest in the presence of the Almighty. You will say, "This I declare of the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I am trusting him." My precious child I will rescue you from every trap and protect you from the fatal plague. I will shield you with My wings. I will shelter you with My feathers. My faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor fear the dangers of the day, nor dread the plague that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. But you will see it with your eyes; you will see how the wicked are punished.

      Because you My precious child make the LORD your refuge, because you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your dwelling. For I order My angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you with their hands to keep you from striking your foot on a stone. You will trample down lions and poisonous snakes; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

      My precious child, My servant, and My friend, whom I have chosen, I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will hold you up with my righteous right hand. All who come against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all. For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, do not fear; I will help you. Do not be afraid, for I myself will help you declares the LORD, your Redeemer. You will rejoice in the LORD and glory in the Holy One of Israel.

      My precious child, when you asked Me to forgive your sins and come into your heart I sent My Holy Spirit into you to comfort you, to give you power, and as proof to you that I have adopted you as My child. The Holy Spirit shall lead you into all truth because He shall testify of Jesus, and He will give you power to testify of Jesus. I will speak to you through My Holy Spirit that is in you, He will tell you what is right and wrong, what is love and hate. My Holy Spirit is a gentle whisper inside your heart telling you the path to walk in. If you walk in My Spirit you will walk in love, you will not sin. And you will see great and mighty things happen before you, they will not be accomplished by strength, nor by outside force, but by My Spirit says the LORD ALMIGHTY. Through My Holy Spirit I shall give you supernatural gifts that you may be blessed, and that you shall bless others through demonstrating My love for them. My Holy Spirit will be with you through out your whole life, and after I will receive you into My glory.

      I your LORD say to you I will rescue you because you love me. I will protect you because you trust in my name. When you call on me, I will answer; I will be with you in trouble. I will rescue you and honor you. I will satisfy you with a long life and give you my salvation. Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me. It is your destiny.

    • CONVERSATION WITH GOD....HAVE A GOOD DAY...posted by MARYD

       
       
      Me: Promise You won't get mad
      God: I promise

      Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?
      God: What do you mean?

      Me: Well, I woke up late
      God: Yes

      Me: My car took forever to start
      God: Okay

      Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait
      God: Huummm ...

      Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call
      God: All right

      Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did You do that?

      God: Let me see, the death angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of My Angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that
      Me (humbled): OH

      GOD: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
      Me: (ashamed)

      God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.
      Me (embarrassed):Okay

      God: Your phone went dead bcuz the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn't even let you talk to them so you would be covered.
      Me (softly): I see God

      God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.
      Me: I'm Sorry God

      God: Don't be sorry, just learn to Trust Me.... in All things , the Good & the bad.
      Me: I will trust You.

      God: And don't doubt that My plan for your day is Always Better than your plan.

    • GOD, MOSES, ISRAELITES, & THE WILDERNESS...
       
       
      Almighty God took Moses and the Israelites into the desert, but what was Moses going to do with them? They had to be fed, and feeding 2 million people requires a lot of food.
      Moses WAS clueless...but he trusted Almighty God HAD a plan.

      According to the Quartermaster General of the Army, it is calculated that Moses would have needed 1500 TONS of food EACH day to feed the Israelites. To bring that much food each day, TWO freight trains, EACH a mile long, would be required.

      Besides that, you must remember, they were out in the desert, so they would have to have firewood to use in cooking the food. This would take 4000 TONS of wood and a few MORE freight trains, EACH a mile long, just for ONE DAY.

      And just think, they were FORTY YEARS in transit.

      And oh yes! They would have to have water.
      If they only had enough to drink, cook and wash a few dishes, it would take 11,000,000 MILLION GALLONS EACH day...and a freight train WITH tank cars, 3 miles long, just to bring water!

      And then another thing!

      They had to get ACROSS the Red Sea in ONE DAY.
      Now, if they went on a NARROW path, DOUBLE FILE, the line would be 800 MILES LONG and would require 35 DAYS & NIGHTS to get through to the other side.
      (Besides all of the people there were large droves of livestock.) So, there had to be a space in the Red Sea THREE MILES WIDE so that they could walk 5000 abreast to get over in ONE DAY.

      But then, there is another problem.

      EACH TIME they camped at the end of the day, a campground TWO-THIRDS THE SIZE OF RHODE ISLAND was required; a total area of 750 SQUARE MILES.
      Think of it...this MUCH CLEARED AVAILABLE SPACE just for EACH nightly camping!

      Do you think Moses figured all this out before he left Egypt?
      I think not! You see, Moses believed in Almighty God, and God took care of these things for him.

      Now, do you still THINK ALMIGHTY GOD has any problem taking care of all OUR needs?

    • Amen Faithy Trouble and anguish have overtaken me, yet Your
      commandments are my delights." Despite the difficulties of his
      life, the Psalmist still found delight in God's word. His appreciation
      of God and His word was not only valid in good times, but also in
      trouble and anguish.

    • TRIED AND PROVEN..BY DAVID GUZIK

      "Trouble and anguish have overtaken me,
      Yet Your commandments are my delights.
      The righteousness of Your testimonies is everlasting;
      Give me understanding, and I shall live." (Psalm 119:143-144)

      There is A LOT of trouble in this world, and everyone has some share
      in it. There are troubles that we experience and troubles we
      observe. Some of these troubles come from evil men, some come
      from natural calamity. All of it sometimes drives us to despair,
      wondering where God is in the midst of all the trouble.

      In such seasons, it's good to read what DAVID wrote:
      "Trouble and anguish have overtaken me, yet Your
      commandments are my delights." Despite the difficulties of his
      life, the Psalmist still found delight in God's word. His appreciation
      of God and His word was not only valid in good times, but also in
      trouble and anguish.

      This is one of the GREAT qualities of the Christian faith.

      It is true in the darkest of days, even in times of trouble and anguish.

      Christianity was born into a world that knew evil, tragedy, and
      sorrow on a scale far beyond what most of us know.

      When Jesus was about 11 years old, there was a Jewish revolt
      against the Romans in the Galilee region. The rebels took over a
      city about 4 miles (6.5 kilometers) from Nazareth.

      When the Romans CRUSHED the rebellion, they LEVELED the city, sold the
      surviving women and children into slavery, and crucified 2,000 men
      along the roads all around Nazareth.

      From His youngest days,Jesus looked at the horror and brutality of this world, and was determined to not only pay the price to forgive and redeem the penalty of it all, but also to transform men and women to make such
      things far less common.

      DAVID KNEW what Jesus also knew - "Trouble and anguish
      have overtaken me, yet Your commandments are my delights."

      For them, the truth and promises of God's word were NOT just
      HELPFUL HINTS or theoretical statements.

      They WERE THE REASON for delight even in the most difficult seasons.

      He continued, "The righteousness of Your testimonies is
      everlasting; give me understanding, and I shall live."

      We might THINK that what DAVID NEEDED to live was deliverance from
      his trouble and anguish. He found that understanding the word
      of God was even MORE important.

      One reason DAVID found this to be so was because he UNDERSTOOD that
      the righteousness of God's word IS EVERLASTING.

      He KNEW the eternal character of the word of God, and it made that word all the MORE IMPORTANT and relevant to him.

      I've read that there used to be a habit among some Christians to
      write the letters T and P in the margin of the Bible, next to certain
      promises of God.

      The letters stood for "Tried and Proven," because
      these followers of Jesus discovered for themselves exactly what
      DAVID found - that we CAN TEST the promises of God, and
      PROVE THEM to be true.

      A Florida Court Sets Atheist Holy Day!

      Gotta love this Judge!

      You must read this......
      A proper decision by the courts...
      for a change.

      A FLORIDA COURT SETS
      ATHEIST HOLY DAY

      In Florida , an atheist created a case against Easter and Passover Holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians and Jews and observances of their holy days. The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days.

      The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, "Case dismissed!"


      The lawyer immediately stood and objecting to the ruling saying,
      "Your honor, How can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and others.
      The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays..."
      The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, "But you do. Your client, counselor, is woefully ignorant."
      The lawyer said," Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists."
      The judge said, "The calendar says April 1st is April Fool's Day. Psalm 14:1 states, 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that, if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore,
      April 1st is his day.

      Court is adjourned..."

      You gotta love a Judge that knows his scripture!

    • ON EAGLES' WINGS..BY DAVID GUZIK

      You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you
      on eagles' wings and brought you to Myself. (Exodus 19:4)

      The people of Israel had finished the first part of their journey - out
      of Egypt, and now towards Mount Sinai. They would stay a year at
      Mount Sinai as God gave them His law. As they arrived at the same
      mountain where the LORD spoke to Moses out of the burning bush,
      God had something very special to say to the people of Israel.

      First, He reminded them of His triumph over the Egyptians ("You
      have seen what I did to the Egyptians"). Israel needed to be
      reminded over and over again that the LORD their God was greater
      than any of Egypt's pretend deities. There should never be a
      competition in our life between God and anything else; we need to
      remember that He is greater than anyone and anything else.

      Next, He spoke to them about His loving care. In saying, "How I
      bore you on eagle's wings," the LORD used a precious - and
      powerful - picture. It is said that an eagle does not carry her young
      in her claws like other birds. Instead, the young eagles attach
      themselves to the back of the mother eagle and are protected from
      any attack from the ground as they are carried. Any arrow from a
      hunter must pass through the mother eagle before it could touch
      the young eagle on her back.

      The LORD has the same loving care for you. Whatever arrows or
      attacks come your way have first come through the LORD Himself.
      This is true in two ways. First, Jesus endured all temptation while
      He walked this earth as a man. The Bible says that Jesus "was in
      all points tempted as we are, yet without sin" (Hebrews 4:15).
      Enthroned in heaven, at the right hand of God the Father, Jesus
      understands perfectly every arrow shot at you, because the same
      arrow was shot at Him. Second, whatever comes our way must
      come by the allowance of God. God is never the source of evil or
      temptation, but it is fully within God's power to stop any trial or
      temptation at any time. The fact that He has allowed it means He
      has a purpose for it in your life - and the purpose isn't to kill you.
      The death-arrow would have to go through Him before it ever
      comes to His child.

      Finally, He spoke to Israel about the purpose of His deliverance. He
      rescued Israel so they could have a relationship with Him. As He
      brought them out of Egypt, God said that He "brought you to
      Myself." God didn't deliver Israel so they could do their own thing,
      but so they could be God's people.

      So it is in our life. Jesus does not rescue us so we can live to
      ourselves, but so we live unto Him. As 2 Corinthians 5:15 says, "He
      died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves,
      but for Him who died for them and rose again." His purpose is to
      bring us to Himself. He rescued you to be with Him in relationship.

    • Noah in Modern Times



      And the Lord spoke to Noah & said: "In six months I'm going to make it rain until the whole earth is covered with water & all the evil people are destroyed. But I want to save a few good people, and two of every kind of living thing on the planet. I am ordering you to build Me an Ark."

      And in a flash of lightning he delivered the specifications for the Ark.

      "OK," said Noah, trembling in fear and fumbling with the blueprints.

      "Six months, and it starts to rain, "thundered the Lord. "You'd better have my Ark completed, or learn how to swim for a very long time."

      And six months passed. The skies began to cloud up and rain began to fall. The Lord saw that Noah was sitting in his front yard, weeping. And there was no Ark.

      "Noah," shouted the Lord, "where is my Ark?" A lighting bolt crashed to the ground next to Noah.

      "Lord, please forgive me!" begged Noah. "I did my best. But there were big problems.

      First I had to get a building permit for the Ark construction project, and your plans didn't meet code. So I had to hire an engineer to redraw the plans.

      Then I got into a big fight over whether or not the Ark needed a fire sprinkler system.

      My neighbors objected, claiming I was violating zoning by building the Ark in my front yard, so I had to get a variance from the city planning commission.

      Then I had a big problem getting enough wood for the Ark because there was a ban on cutting trees to save the Spotted Owl. I had to convince U.S. Fish and Wildlife that I needed wood to save the owls. But they wouldn't let me catch any owls. So no owls.

      Then the carpenters formed a union and went out on strike. I had to negotiate a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board before anyone would pick up a saw or hammer. Now we have 16 carpenters going on the boat and still no owls.

      Then I started gathering up animals, and got sued by animal rights group. They objected to me taking only two of each kind.

      Just when I got the suit dismissed, EPA notified me that I couldn't complete the Ark without filing an environmental impact statement on your proposed flood. They didn't take kindly to the idea that they had no jurisdiction over the conduct of a Supreme Being.

      Then the Army Corps of Engineers wanted a map of the proposed new flood plain. I sent them a globe.

      Right now I'm still trying to resolve a complaint from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over how many Croatians I'm supposed to hire, the IRS has seized all my assets claiming I'm trying to avoid paying taxes by leaving the country, and I just got a notice from the state about owing some kind of use tax.

      I really don't think I can finish your Ark for at least another five years," Noah wailed.

      The sky began to clear. The sun began to shine. A rainbow arched across the sky.

      Noah looked up and smiled. "You mean you're not going to destroy the earth?" Noah asked, hopefully.

      "No," said the Lord sadly, "The government already has."

    • WHY GOD MADE MOMS...posted by MARYD

       
      The following was sent to me by a dear friend, I smiled,laughed and cried
      all at the same time. I hope ya'll will enjoy and be as Blessed as I was
      when reading........


      WHY GOD MADE MOMS

      Answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions:

      Why did God make mothers?
      1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
      2. Mostly to clean the house.
      3. To help us out of there when we were getting
      born.



      How did God make mothers?

      1. He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.
      2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of
      stirring.
      3. God made my mom just the same like he made me. He just
      used bigger parts.


      What ingredients are mothers made of?

      1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and
      everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.
      2. They had to get their start from men's bones. Then
      they mostly use string, I think.

      Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?

      1. We're related.

      2. God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's mom
      like me.


      What kind of a little girl was your mom?



      1. My mom has always been my mom and none of that other
      stuff.

      2. I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be
      pretty bossy.

      3. They say she used to be nice.


      What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?

      1. His last name.

      2. She had to know his background. Like is he a
      crook? Does he get drunk on beer?

      3. Does he make at least $800 a year? Did he say NO to
      drugs and YES to chores?



      Why did your mom marry your dad?

      1. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my
      mom eats a lot.


      2. She got too old to do anything else with him.

      3. My grandma says that mom didn't have her thinking cap
      on.


      Who's the boss at your house?


      1. Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's
      such a goof ball.


      2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees
      the stuff under the bed.


      3. I guess mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do
      than dad.

      What's the difference between moms and dads?


      1. Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work
      at work.

      2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring
      them.


      3. Dads are taller and stronger, but moms have all the real
      power cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep
      over at your friends.


      4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without
      medicine.



      What does your mom do in her spare time?


      1. Mothers don't do spare time.

      2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day
      long.




      What would it take to make your mom perfect?


      1. On the inside she's already perfect. Outside, I think
      some kind of plastic surgery.

      2. Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe
      blue.



      If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?


      1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room
      clean. I'd get rid that

      2. I'd make my mom smarter. Then she would know it was my
      sister who did it not me.



      3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on
      the back of her head.


      WHEN YOU STOP LAUGHING -- SEND IT ON TO OTHER
      MOTHERS, GRANDMOTHERS, AND AUNTS....and anyone else who has
      anything to do with kids or just needs a good laugh!!!!!!

    • I was not aware of this practice until now. I am pleased that it happens,
      and am astounded that it does happen,
      given the political situation that exists in our government today.


      It really breaks my heart to know that we didn't know this goes on every Friday, well at least I didn't know.
      Instead, I guess the media feels it's more important to report on Hollywood stars as heroes.
      I hope this article gives you a sense of pride for what our men and women are doing for us,
      every day, as they serve in the armed forces here and abroad.
      IT HAPPENS EVERY FRIDAY! WERE YOU AWARE?

      Mornings at the Pentagon

      By JOSEPH L. GALLOWAY
      McClatchy Newspapers

      Over the last 12 months, 1,042 soldiers, Marines, sailors and Air Force personnel have given their lives in the terrible duty that is war.

      Thousands more have come home on stretchers, horribly wounded and facing months or years in military hospitals.

      This week, I'm turning my space over to a good friend and former roommate, Army Lt. Col.. Robert Bateman, who recently completed a yearlong tour of duty and is now back at the Pentagon.

      Here's Lt. Col. Bateman's account of a little-known ceremony that fills the halls of the Army corridor of the Pentagon with cheers, applause and many tears every Friday morning. It first appeared on May 17 on the Weblog of media critic and pundit Eric Alterman at the Media Matters for America Website.



      "It is 110 yards from the "E" ring to the "A" ring of the Pentagon. This section of the Pentagon is newly renovated; the floors shine, the hallway is broad, and the lighting is bright. At this instant the entire length of the corridor is packed with officers, a few sergeants and some civilians, all crammed tightly three and four deep against the walls. There are thousands here.

      "This hallway, more than any other, is the `Army' hallway. The G3 offices line one side, G2 the other, G8 is around the corner. All Army. Moderate conversations flow in a low buzz. Friends who may not have seen each other for a few weeks, or a few years, spot each other, cross the way and renew.

      "Everyone shifts to ensure an open path remains down the center. The air conditioning system was not designed for this press of bodies in this area.

      "The temperature is rising already. Nobody cares. "10:36 hours: The clapping starts at the E-Ring. That is the outermost of the five rings of the Pentagon and it is closest to the entrance to the building. This clapping is low, sustained, hearty. It is applause with a deep emotion behind it as it moves forward in a wave down the length of the hallway.

      "A steady rolling wave of sound it is, moving at the pace of the soldier in the wheelchair who marks the forward edge with his presence. He is the first. He is missing the greater part of one leg, and some of his wounds are still suppurating. By his age I expect that he is a private, or perhaps a private first class.

      "Captains, majors, lieutenant colonels and colonels meet his gaze and nod as they applaud, soldier to soldier. Three years ago when I described one of these events, those lining the hallways were somewhat different. The applause a little wilder, perhaps in private guilt for not having shared in the burden ... Yet.

      "Now almost everyone lining the hallway is, like the man in the wheelchair, also a combat veteran. This steadies the applause, but I think deepens the sentiment. We have all been there now. The soldier's chair is pushed by, I believe, a full colonel.





      "Behind him, and stretching the length from Rings E to A, come more of his peers, each private, corporal, or sergeant assisted as need be by a field grade officer.

      "11:00 hours: Twenty-four minutes of steady applause. My hands hurt, and I laugh to myself at how stupid that sounds in my own head. My hands hurt. Please! Shut up and clap. For twenty-four minutes, soldier after soldier has come down this hallway - 20, 25, 30.. Fifty-three legs come with them, and perhaps only 52 hands or arms, but down this hall came 30 solid hearts.

      "They pass down this corridor of officers and applause, and then meet for a private lunch, at which they are the guests of honor, hosted by the generals. Some are wheeled along. Some insist upon getting out of their chairs, to march as best they can with their chin held up, down this hallway, through this most unique audience. Some are catching handshakes and smiling like a politician at a Fourth of July parade. More than a couple of them seem amazed and are smiling shyly.

      "There are families with them as well: the 18-year-old war-bride pushing her 19-year-old husband's wheelchair and not quite understanding why her husband is so affected by this, the boy she grew up with, now a man, who had never shed a tear is crying; the older immigrant Latino parents who have, perhaps more than their wounded mid-20s son, an appreciation for the emotion given on their son's behalf. No man in that hallway, walking or clapping, is ashamed by the silent tears on more than a few cheeks. An Airborne Ranger wipes his eyes only to better see. A couple of the officers in this crowd have themselves been a part of this parade in the past.

      "These are our men, broken in body they may be, but they are our brothers, and we welcome them home. This parade has gone on, every single Friday, all year long, for more than four years.

    • If Tomorrow Never Comes

      If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

      If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door, I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more.

      If I knew it would be the last time I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day.

      If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare an extra minute or two to stop and say "I love you," instead of assuming, you would know I do.

      If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, well I'm sure you'll have so many more, so I can let just this one slip away.

      For surely there's always tomorrow to make up for an oversight, and we always get a second chance to make everything right.

      There will always be another day to say our "I love you'", And certainly there's another chance to say our "Anything I can do'?"

      But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I'd like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget, Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight.

      So if you're waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today?

      For if tomorrow never comes, you'll surely regret the day, That you didn't take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish.

      So hold your loved ones close today, whisper in their ear, Tell them how much you love them and that you'll always hold them dear, Take time to say "I'm sorry," "please forgive me," "thank you" or "it's okay".

      And if tomorrow never comes, you'll have no regrets about today

    • I want to share a little known story that has touched my heart and will touch yours as well. Jesus Bless you .

      This is little-known story from the Pentagon on 09/11/2001:

      During a visit with a fellow chaplain, who happened to be assigned
      to the Pentagon, I had a chance to hear a first-hand account of an
      incident that happened right after Flight 77 hit the Pentagon.
      The chaplain told me what happened at a daycare center near where
      the impact occurred. This daycare had many children, including
      infants who were in heavy cribs. The daycare supervisor, looking at
      all the children they needed to evacuate, was in a panic over what
      they could do. There were many children, mostly toddlers, as well
      as the infants that would need to be taken out with the cribs.
      There was no time to try to bundle them into carriers and
      strollers. Just then a young Marine came running into the center
      and asked what they needed. After hearing what the center director
      was trying to do, he ran back out into the hallway and disappeared.
      The director thought, 'Well, here we are-on our own.'

      About 2 minutes later, that Marine returned with 40 other Marines
      in tow. Each of them grabbed a crib with a child, and the rest
      started gathering up toddlers. The director and her staff then
      helped them take all the children out of the center and down toward
      the park near the Potomac and the Pentagon. Once they got about 3/4
      of a mile outside the building, the Marines stopped in the park,
      and then did a fabulous thing - they formed a circle with the
      cribs, which were quite sturdy and heavy, like the covered wagons
      in the Old West. Inside this circle of cribs, they put the
      toddlers, to keep them from wandering off. Outside this circle were
      the 40 Marines, forming a perimeter around the children and waiting
      for instructions. There they remained until the parents could be
      notified and come get their children.

      The chaplain then said, "I don't think any of us saw nor heard of
      this on any of the news stories of the day. It was an incredible
      story of our men there. There wasn't a dry eye in the room. The
      thought of those Marines and what they did and how fast they
      reacted; could we expect any less from them? It was one of the most
      touching stories from the Pentagon."
       
      Remember Ronald Reagan's great compliment: "Most of us wonder if
      our lives made any difference.
       
      Marines don't

    • A simple question...A simple YES or NO answer. Are you READY? If you should take your last breath today...do you KNOW WHERE would you take your next one?

      As some of you know, in the last 90 days, I have sat long hours with five family/friends who had to FACE and ANSWER this question.

      I am going to suppose that EACH person who reads this, whether they reply or not, BELIEVES that we ALL have a CHOICE to make.

      Eternity in Heaven WITH Jesus Christ, or ultimately eternity in The Lake of Fire WITH Satan, his demons, & those who CHOOSE to reject, dismiss, delay or ignore Jesus Christ's invitation of grace, mercy, & salvation through HIS cruel, painful death as paid-in-full payment for every person's sin on the cross at Calvary.

      This IS a GIFT from Jesus Christ himself.
      This IS a gift NONE of us can EVER earn...EVER be good enough to receive through our own works.

      Here are a FEW of the KJV Biblical sureties:

      Hebrews 9:27-"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment."

      John 14:6-"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

      Romans 6:23-"For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

      John 3:16-17-"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."

      A simple question to be answered by each of us; and an eternity to be thankful or to be regretful for that choice.

      There is NO second chance AFTER we die. We MUST choose our eternal path, one-on-one with Jesus Christ Himself NOW. After we breathe our last breath...it is TOO late.

      Of the five I loved and sat with, only ONE was my heart broken over, & that one refused until their last conscious/coherent moment to believe that there was anything after death, but dirt and the grave. I will NOT presume, that during those last few hours when delirium reigned and comatose presided that he and Jesus Christ did not have a face to face confrontation.

      Knowing how precious Jesus Christ is, I would NOT doubt that HE spoke face-to-face with my friend, and offered HIS invitation, HIS free gift to my friend. My friend was NOT coherent nor lucid during his last hours, so I could not ask. All I could do was pray for him, love him, and hope in the ONLY REAL HOPE any of us has in THIS life and THE next, that my friend did NOT once again REJECT/DISMISS our precious Jesus Christ.

      I will NOT know the ANSWER to that UNTIL I too make that wondrous "blink of an eye" journey from this life into the AMAZING presence of Jesus Christ and His saints in Heaven, and see for myself if my friend is there.

      But I DO know WITHOUT a shadow of doubt that CHOOSE he did.
      No choice, refusing to choose...IS a choice.
      No choice IS a rejection of ALL Jesus Christ was, is & shall ever be.

      So we MUST choose.

      Eternity in Heaven with our precious loving Jesus Christ or an ETERNITY in The Lake of Fire, with that belly-crawling, king of liars, king of deception, & king of the scum of the earth Satan.

      Be NOT deceived.
      Today IS the day of salvation through Jesus Christ.
      Tomorrow is promised to NO MAN, NO WOMAN...NO ONE.

      So the simple question and simple answer remains for each of us.
      When ALL is said and done it is the ONLY question that REALLY matters in THIS life or THE next.

      If we breath our last THIS day on earth, where will we breath our next?

      Choose LIFE...Choose Jesus Christ.
      I want to spend eternity with ALL of you.
      And so, Beloved...does Jesus Christ.

    • Dear Lord,

      Thank you for this sink of dirty dishes; we have plenty of food to eat.

      Thank you for this pile of dirty, stinky laundry; we have plenty of nice clothes to wear.

      And I would like to thank you, Lord, for those unmade beds; they were so warm and comfortable last night. I know that many have no bed.

      My thanks to you, Lord, for this bathroom, complete with all the splattered mess, soggy, grimy towels and the dirty lavatory; they are all so convenient.

      Thank you for this finger-smudged refrigerator that needs defrosting so badly; it has served us faithfully for many years. It is full of cold drinks and enough leftovers for two or three meals.

      Thank you, Lord, for this oven that absolutely must be cleaned today; it has baked so many things over the years.

      The whole family is grateful for that tall grass that needs mowing and lawn that needs raking; we all enjoy the yard.

      Thank you, Lord, even for that slamming screen door. My kids are healthy and able to run and play. Many children cannot.

      Lord, the presence of all these chores awaiting me says You have richly blessed my family. I shall do them cheerfully and I shall do them gratefully.

      Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings... Thank you, Lord, that I can hear. There are many who are deaf.

      Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible...Thank you, Lord, that I can see. Many are blind.

      Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising...Thank you, Lord, that I have the strength to rise. There are many who are bedridden.

      Even though the first hour of my day is hectic with socks that are lost, toast that is burned, tempers that are short, and my children that are so loud...Thank you, Lord, for my family. There are many who are lonely.

      Even though our breakfast table never looks like the pictures in magazines and the menu is at times not balanced...Thank you, Lord, for the food we have. There are many who are hungry.

      Even though the routine of my job is often monotonous...Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to work. There are many who are jobless.

      Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day and wish my circumstances were not so modest...Thank you, Lord, for life.

    • I listened to an awesome teaching this morning by Andy Stanley of Buckhead Church ATL and Louie Gigilo of Passion City Church ATL.


      They said, "We have been all over the world with our ministries...hear and can say, 'God bless you' and people on the street, outside of/within our Passion Conferences...nod and/or say 'Oh yeah God.. Cool...God bless you too'...without a pause...but say, 'Jesus Christ loves you or Jesus Christ bless you'...and you GET the pause...or non-response, or worse the walkaways...unless they DO KNOW and LOVE Jesus Christ.


      And we wondered WHY?


      WHY such diverse reactions to the SAME greeting/blessing?


      And we prayed over it and then it HIT US........


      The reason for the VERY different responses is because "God bless you" is SAFE/GENERIC, because there ARE all kinds of "gods" out there in this big, wide world.

      When you say 'God bless you'...they can attribute it to any number of "gods", but when you SAY..."Jesus Christ bless you...Jesus Christ loves you brother/sister"you are ZEROING in on the ONE TRUE TRIUNE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE. THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES. THE ONLY GOD of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob. THE CHRIST. THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON of ALMIGHTY GOD.


      So, Andy & Louie have begun repeating this revelation in the Passion Conferences all over the world with the Young People/Young Adults that crowd their events.


      They have asked them to start saying, "Jesus Christ loves you...Jesus Christ bless you"...so the EVERYDAY person on the street KNOWS whose child you are; KNOWS whom you trust; KNOWS whom you believe in; KNOWS without a DOUBT whom YOUR GOD IS.

      The one, the only, the mighty, the matchless Lord & Savior JESUS CHRIST.


      Jesus Christ loves you and blesses you!

      Your sister in Christ Jesus, I remain,

      Faith

    • ESUS IS A PERFECTIONIST WHERE OUR PRAYER NEEDS & ANSWERS ARE CONCERNED..
       
       
       
      JESUS REMINDED ME OF THIS WITH A MEMORY...OF MY GRANDMOTHER KNITTING ME A SWEATER.
       
       
       
      I ASKED HER TO KNIT ME ONE IN BOLD RED, ROYAL BLUE, & EMERALD GREEN.
       
       
       
      I WAS IMPATIENT THEN AND NOW... :-)
       
      IS IT READY GRAM?
      WORKING ON IT FAITH. I HAVE THE SLEEVES DONE. BE PATIENT!
       
      IS IT READY YET GRAM?
      WORKING ON IT FAITH. I HAVE THE ROLLED COLLAR DONE. BE PATIENT!
       
      IS IT READY YET GRAM?
      GETTING THERE FAITH. COME BY. I NEED YOU TO TRY IT ON.
       
      I GOT THERE...TRIED IT ON AND IT LOOKED "GOOD ENOUGH" TO ME.
      THANK YOU GRAM. CAN I HAVE IT NOW? IT LOOKS GOOD ENOUGH.
       
      NOT YET FAITH..IT IS NOT PERFECT..I STILL HAVE TO ADD A FEW THINGS.
      BUT..BUT...BUT...I WANT IT NOW...I NEED IT NOW!
       
      SOON FAITH..WHEN IT IS PERFECT, FINISHED, & JUST RIGHT...BE PATIENT!
       
      I LEFT DISCOURAGED, UPSET, AND YES, A BIT ANGRY.
      IT WAS GOOD ENOUGH TO MY YOUNG, UNTRAINED, EYES.
       
      BUT WHAT I DID NOT KNOW THEN, WAS IT WAS NOT PERFECT.
      HAD I GOTTEN "GOOD ENOUGH", THE SWEATER WOULD HAVE UNRAVELED.
      IT NEEDED THE KNITTING KNOTS.
      THE SECURE SEAMING STITCHES THAT INSURED IT WOULD STAND UP AGAINST WEAR & TEAR.
       
      WHEN I DID GET THE SWEATER...IT LASTED FOR YEARS AND IT WAS PERFECT!
       
      JESUS IS KNITTING YOUR NEEDS & PRAYER ANSWERS.
      JESUS IS NOT SATISFIED WITH "GOOD ENOUGH" WORK.
      JESUS IS A PERFECTIONIST.
       
      WAIT FOR HIS PATIENT, PERFECT WORK!
      YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!
