God IS Merciful!

Sometimes, perhaps always lol, the Bible just says it better 🙂

“For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear Him.

As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

Like as a father pities His children, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.

For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.

As for man, his days are as grass; as a flower in the field, so he flourishes. For the wind passes over it; and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know no more.

But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him, and His righteousness unto children’s children.

Pslam 103 11-17 KJV

Freedom & Choices!

A friend of mine sent this, just had to share 🙂

“ALL of God’s Children are given choices between good and evil. This IS the way that God created us. Our Heavenly Father did not want “robots” to perform without thoughts or feelings.

He made us in His Own Image. He feels what we feel. He knows EVERYTHING about us, every intricate detail. He IS our Maker and each of us made to be unique. He also knew that giving us the ability, to make our own choices, would eventually take us to sin. God’s Mercy and Grace gave His Only Son, Jesus Christ to be our choice of Redemption, our Salvation, our Hope, through His Suffering, death, and Resurrection! Truly, His Love for His Children knows no boundary!

By accepting Jesus Christ, as our personal Lord and Savior, asking Him to come into our hearts, receiving His Holy Spirit and being Born Again, what does this really allow us? FREEDOM! Freedom from worry, fear of tomorrow, evils, and the material wants of the body.

Does this mean evil will no longer try to tempt and bombard us with fiery darts of doubt and pain? NO! Truly, it means we have a choice to attempt to take on all these things on our own (i.e. which we will surely fail) OR give our trials and tribulations to our Father in heaven to combat with us. 

Worry means being drawn in different directions, distracted, anxious, disturbed, and upset in spirit. Jesus had warned against this very thing in the Sermon on the Mount. “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’….. For your Heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” (Matthew 6:31-34) Jesus was trying to show His people the true secret of a quiet mind, freedom from anxiety and unnecessary worry. Tomorrow’s evils were not to be considered. Our Lord was teaching the great lessons of complete and childlike trust and confidence in God.

Before we make choices on this earth, would it not be wise to take them to our Lord in fervent prayer and ask Him to send His Holy Spirit, to Guide and Direct us in His Will and Purpose? OH, how much grief and evil this would lift from us!! 

Covid 19 & Dieing

There’s been a lot written lately about the sadness of people dieing alone from Covid 19.  And while it is incredibly hard not to be able to be with those we love when they pass, the truth is, as you know,  no one dies alone.  Because Jesus is with them :). 

We live in extraordinary times and in these extraordinary times, Jesus may indeed give those we love extraordinary comfort, because He loves us 🙂

“Cancel” God?

A friend sent this, had to share 🙂

“The word “cancel” is getting a new use. “Canceling” and “cancel culture” have to do with the removing of support or objects for people in response to their behavior or opinions not agreed upon. Appears the latest so-called “cancel culture” actions have gone too far.

Simply, if you do or represent something that others feel is a problem, you are silenced, perhaps in voice or action. Truly, the amount of pressure and opinion, that has been stirring to create this person or organization to either shut up, disappear, stop their actions, including boycotts, or be confronted with violence, is becoming greater. Seems just like when a swarm of bees attack, when they feel their home is threatened.

Evil’s home is the world with those whom do not fear God. Evil has been practicing the word “cancel” for a very long time. All evil needs is for God’s children not to practice and live their life to represent His Word. This includes not respecting or having love for our Heavenly Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Should not this word be used, with for what it truly IS: “Cancel” God? 

Evil can only flourish if there is no resistance. Recently, I saw a sign outside of a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream store that said, “Resist. Join the Resistance.” Seems like this would be a good slogan against the “Cancel Culture” movement. Those whom fear God need to resist evil and what evil represents. God’s children whom believe in Christ’s Salvation for ALL, need to be like Christ, representing His Love and Peace. Does this mean to not stand up for what is right and God-given freedom?

NO! Quite the opposite. Jesus Christ stood up against those, whom were taking advantage of and creating hardships against good people. Jesus became their Representative and referred to their evil leaders as “rotten on the inside”. Seems like we are witnessing a lot of that in these times. Jesus did not hesitate in His Actions of Truth.

Please note that He also felt sorry for those doing evil, because He knew where their rejection of the Holy Spirit would take them. He even asked His Father to forgive them from their actions of taking Him to His Sacrifice on the cross. This IS True Love!

My thoughts and prayers are that you love one another, even your enemies and those whom do you wrong. That you are not silent for those attempting to “Cancel” God. That you stand up against evil and be like Christ. That you do ALL you can to share Him with others and increase His Father’s Kingdom. Do not forget His Promise that Jesus WILL return!! In Jesus’ Name. Thy Will be done. Amen. Peace.

Forgiveness is Available for all those who Ask :)

The Bible says, “fear is the beginning of wisdom”.

We may not always wish to live as the Bible has instructed, but woe to person who fails to do so, and refuses to repent.

In His great love for us, our Father has left wide open a way for repentance and forgiveness.  His name is Jesus Christ.

Don’t walk to Him, Run.  He is waiting for you with open arms 😊

The Blessing

In case anyone is wondering why so many videos of The Blessing have been posted…

The Holy Spirit is indeed working in our world. That so many people, from so many different countries have sung this song to encourage each other and to pray for God’s help is proof of that!

So if you ever wonder if God is here, if He understands our suffering and if He will Save us-let these songs serve as your “proof” 🙂

For God loves us all, each and every one!

More On The Fairness of The Unforgivable Sin…

We all like to focus on God’s Great Mercy and there is nothing wrong with that. It’s so comforting to think about God’s Great Love for all of us.  And to know, that when we fail.  He will be there to catch us, and to forgive us. And to Love us!

But God is also Just.  And His Justice is not necessarily something every one likes to focus on.  And yet, if God were not Just, would we follow Him?  What’s the point of striving to do all that the Bible teaches us, if it doesn’t matter?  Thank God, it does matter.  And that is one of the reasons for the Unforgivable Sin.  We have our whole lives to accept Christ, but at some point, there has to be a reckoning.  This is it.

God is indeed Merciful, but He is also Just.  And we thank Him for both 😊
