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”.

I Love The Word

Jesus Foretells the Future

5 Some of his disciples began talking about the majestic stonework of the Temple and the memorial decorations on the walls. But Jesus said, 6 “The time is coming when all these things will be completely demolished. Not one stone will be left on top of another!” 7 “Teacher,” they asked, “when will all this happen? What sign will show us that these things are about to take place?”

8 He replied, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’[b] and saying, ‘The time has come!’ But don’t believe them. 9 And when you hear of wars and insurrections, don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place first, but the end won’t follow immediately.” 10 Then he added, “Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 There will be great earthquakes, and there will be famines and plagues in many lands, and there will be terrifying things and great miraculous signs from heaven.

12 “But before all this occurs, there will be a time of great persecution. You will be dragged into synagogues and prisons, and you will stand trial before kings and governors because you are my followers. 13 But this will be your opportunity to tell them about me.[c] 14 So don’t worry in advance about how to answer the charges against you, 15 for I will give you the right words and such wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to reply or refute you! 16 Even those closest to you—your parents, brothers, relatives, and friends—will betray you. They will even kill some of you. 17 And everyone will hate you because you are my followers.[d] 18 But not a hair of your head will perish! 19 By standing firm, you will win your souls.

The word of God is the whole truth and I love God’s word.It gives me wisdom,strength,joy and peace! It’s so very good to stay in the word for God has forewarned us of many things going on now,and if you don’t know the word and believe it,then fear may over take you.I want to encourage you to stay in the word.

Salvation

There are still so many people that think this way;
I’ll come to Jesus after I get myself right. But what they fail to realize is
that there is no way to get right without Jesus Christ. No matter what you try
you cannot get clean enough on your own to please God. The void in your life is
there on purpose,it’s where Jesus is suppose to be. Jesus Christ,God’s great
gift to us is God’s way of getting us right.And we must first believe in God,and
the finished work that Jesus Christ has done. For by the power of the eternal
Spirit,Christ offered himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.
Hebrews 9:14 (b)
I no longer count on my own goodness or my ability to
obey God’s law, But I trust Christ to save me. For God’s way of making us right
“with himself depends on faith. Philippians 3:9

For if you confess with
your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from
the dead,you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are
made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.
Romans 10:9,10
Simply by faith you are made right in God’s sight
Love in Christ Pa
