War

Luke 24:21pretty-flower
21 We had hoped he was the Messiah who had come to rescue Israel.

Amazing how our minds work! So much like the Disciples,that’s because of that ugly carnal nature in us. We also expect different
results when we pray. Most of the time we really do think we know what we need :) !
But of course we never will! Only God knows what we need,we know our wants. And some times our wants are so deep we just cannot hardly stand it. I know that’s how I am at times,God you promised this and that,but I don’t see it yet :) . Well a lot of the time we are lookinhg for God to do things our way and that never works. The Disciples Expected Jesus to lead a Great Army to win the Battles in the Flesh. But Jesus Won them in the Spirit!

And so must we  2 Corinthians 10
3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.

Jesus does not intend for us to battle alone,He left uus a great helper the Holy Spirit,so we must use this :

Ephesians 6
Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly realms.
So then let’s pray and strap up so we can stand in these evil days,knowing whom we are battling against helps us recognize the real enemy. We Win because: 1 John 4
1 John 4:4 (NKJV)

4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
God’s word and prayer and praise are our weapons in this world stand strong in the Lord He will always come to our rescue.

What? What?

What is wrong with you ? And why do you think so little of yourself ? When,What God has done for you through Christ Jesus gives you Great Value ! You don’t 025realize the Magnitude of all Christ Jesus did for you when He fully obeyed God? If you did you’d never ever worry about your Salvation. He gave us credit just as if we’d obeyed all of His requirements (Justification) In Christ we are perfect in God’s sight (Holy) because of the Blood .All that Jesus went through in Gethsemane was for us, being beaten all night long, thorns being pushed deep into His head,being beaten beyond recognition,dying and coming out the grave was all for us. He could have said Father no more,no more for those sinners but Love drove Him on to do what had to be done to please God for us! Jesus loves us very much and has made us acceptable   in  God’s sight forever. Jesus has taken care of every sin past,present and future! What a Mighty Awesome God we have! Recognize your worth and walk in Freedom! Remember Peter denied Jesus when He needed him the most, but Jesus never denied him or stop loving him in fact he wanted Peter to know that ( Mark 16:7  In essence He said be sure to tell Peter I’m alive”) And He wants us to know without a doubt we are forever safe in Him.

Romans 5

Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us

Ephesians 1

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.

History!

praisegodHistory is supposed to be a teacher we are suppose to learn from our Past Sins! But if you follow any of the many Social Media Sites or watch the News at all ,then as you can hear and see we have not learned much! Black is a color not a Race! I’ve learned a few things

1. Anger changes Nothing !

James 1:19,20  Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

2. Holding Grudges Does Not Work It Causes To Much Pain

But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive you your sins too.”

3. Speaking Ill Of Another, Guilty at Times Don’t Work

Ephesian 4:29

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

4. So I know What, No Not What But Who ?

The “Answer” to the Evil in Mans Heart Is Jesus! For He is the Only One who does Heart Changing! Nothing down through the years of “Racism” has worked different programs ,speakers,  hate fear None is working! We need to “Repent” and call on Jesus as never before. The same old Ill’s from the past are raising their heads —- But God

Romans 12:19

Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”

In all that we are going through now God has a Plan and He will accomplish it . God still controls His world and All of the people that live in it. We need to wise up and Recognize God and His Son Jesus Christ, Now!

Keeping It Real

Another post I wrote a long time back,please enjoy and I hope it’s a blessing .

As I was thinking about being a Christian,it came to me that the title Christian has changed today.For there are so many things going on that now being a Christian seems to mean nothing..And we as Christians have a lot to do with that,for years we’ve hid the truth from others while trying to act all perfect.And the real truth is as Christians we still do sinful things,and then call it and accident or mistake!Well you know as well as I do it is sinning,and others know it too.We should not be ashamed of our Testimony and “Keep it Real”,let others know where you are and where you’re going with the help of Almighty God.As Christians we tend to pick each other apart,because we think,well they’re not doing it just right.There are so many Christians afraid of talking about how they are really hurting and struggling,because they know if they open up exactly what will happen! And it should not be that way,we are to bear one an others burdens without making one feel less,we are told to do all in “Love”. I can remember when I was a baby Christian and buddy I went through it! So now I’m learning to be patient with others,”For God is not Finished with us Yet”! So to all of my brother’s & sister’s that are struggling to live right,just hold on God will get you to the place he want’s you to be,for he has promised Ephesians 3:20 To him who is able to do so much more than we can ever ask for,or even think of,by means of the power working in us. He can and he will do it,all of the changes you need.

Trust God,Trust God

Another post I wrote awhile back,I hope it’s a blessing!

In times where it seems God is not saying one word! Where is he? What is really going on? Oh the questions just continue popping out!! As we struggle to understand,where God is and what he’s doing! It’s a hard and tough situation for sure,but even in God’s Silence we must Trust him.Because first of all he is God,then as we learn from his word “Great is His Faithfulness”! I’ve been saved since 1972 and I’m learning to trust in God even when I cannot hear HimGod’s love will carry me through the Silence.God is so good and so awesome,and the more I learn about him from his word,the more I love and trust him.I know that even when he is Silent,he is yet thinking of me. Oh yes,God thinks of us more often than the sand around the ocean,that’s our time and his! God will never forget us! In times of Silence God’s words brings much comfort,for we learn how he cared for our ancestors and he will do the same for us. Oh God taught me that EVEN WHEN YOU DON’T HEAR FROM ME,WHAT I PROMISED YOU IS STILL TRUE!!! Trust God even when he is Silent,for his plans and purpose are intact at all times,and we should also remember one of my favorite scriptures :

Isaiah

55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, or your ways my ways, says the Lord.

No matter what you’re going through God has not forgotten you!

Sorrows

And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Matthew 24)

As I watched the news and saw the Tsunami caused by the Japanese earthquake,I was in awe at the force water has, it even moved huge ships as if it was a small car. Wooo I just keep thinking of what’s going through the minds of the people there,and what would we do if this happens here. And from what I’ve heard and know it’s possible. Then God‘s Word came to mind concerning the things we are seeing all over the world,and God said these things are just the beginning. Mercy,mercy Lord have mercy on your people that survived and all of your people all over the world. Father help your people to know that all of our protection is found in you. Help us Heavenly Father to recognize you and your Son Jesus Christ,for the things coming will fill our hearts with such fear that our mind can hardly handle it. Help us to know and believe that with you all things are possible,even peace in these trying times. For your Word is going to be fulfilled each and every day,so Father help us to prepare ourselves by calling on the name of Jesus for forgiveness and salvation.Amen

John 12

44 Jesus shouted to the crowds, “If you trust me, you are trusting not only me, but also God who sent me. 45 For when you see me, you are seeing the one who sent me. 46 I have come as a light to shine in this dark world, so that all who put their trust in me will no longer remain in the darkness.

John 14

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

We have God’s Word and as we stay in his Word our faith gets stronger,it’s a wonderful thing to know that God is real and that Jesus came to rescue us. In order to receive you must first believe.

We Just Have To Wait

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer

and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your

requests be made known to God; and the peace

of God, which surpasses all understanding, will

guard your heart and mind through Christ

Jesus. Amen. ( Philippians 4:6-7 )

Sometimes on our journey we feel pressured  and want answers now! But God does not answer when we want him to,only when he knows it’s best. Waiting on God is not easy as we learn,to walk with God. We pitch fits and scream for the answer,but still nothing yet.What do we do? Well one thing that really helps is to continue “Praising God”,for that takes our mind off of our self,and puts  it back on God.God is able to do above and beyond anything we ask,and he will. But it’s a process called waiting, God  has a way of calming us down,and that is through his Holy Spirit.The Spirit of God can and does give us such peace,that we want worry,scream or become filled with doubt and fear “Hallelujah”! Pay close attention to the scripture above,don’t be anxious,do pray,and give thanks.You don’t praise for the thing that’s causing you pain and heartache,but you give “Thanks and “Praise” BECAUSE OF WHO HE IS,THE GREAT “I AM”.

Love in Christ  Pat
