Luke 1:45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

God spoke to me this morning and I’m sharing it with you.  Believe what the Lord tells you.  Believe what the bible says.  Believe the Lords promises.  Don’t just pray….but add your belief with that.  When God sees that you’re trusting Him…you will touch His heart and He will respond with blessings.

Mary the mother of Jesus believed the impossible….that she would give birth to the Savior of all creation and she was rewarded.  The woman with the issue of blood believed that Jesus could and would heal her and He did.  When biblical spiritual knowledge comes into your mind….believe in God’s truth.  Things will change in your life like it did for Mary.  Yes… Mary knew she would become the mother of our Savior because an angel told her in a miraculous way.  She could have doubted and thought “no way… that is impossible.”

God’s word is miraculous!  The word of God(the bible) has POWERBelieve!  You believed you were a sinner and that Jesus is real and see how much your life has changed?  See how much you’re blessed?

Believe……Believe……Believe!!!!

Mary Visits Elizabeth

39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, 40 where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth. 41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! 43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. 45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

Mary’s Song

46 And Mary said:

“My soul glorifies the Lord
47     and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for he has been mindful
    of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
49     for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
    holy is his name.
50 His mercy extends to those who fear him,
    from generation to generation.
51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
    he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones
    but has lifted up the humble.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things
    but has sent the rich away empty.
54 He has helped his servant Israel,
    remembering to be merciful
55 to Abraham and his descendants forever,
    just as he promised our ancestors.”

56 Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home.

Luke 1:39-56

God's love

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

We all know this very well known and memorized scripture.  But there is a two letter word in it that means so much to me and that is the word…”SO”.  The script could have read that God loved the world.   But there is so much behind that simple word…”So”

I want to talk about the love of God briefly.   This is a topic that I could write for days about but I feel led to share this one point today.

 

God's love 3

 

I love God so much and when I pray I cry so a lot and very hard as I tell Him that I love Him.  It’s because I can’t keep up with that amount of God’s love for me.  I feel His love but it’s too powerful for me.  His love for me makes me hungry for His love.  My love for Him is unquenchable.  I’m always panting after Him. In my human form I can’t take in all His love for me.   One day I won’t have to hunger after His love because I will at last be fulfilled with His unfathomable eternal love for me.

god's love 4

Right now we try to get love from our spouses, family and friends and they can only give us but so much. We should not expect for our loved ones to always be able to fulfill our need to be loved.    Only the Lord can give us all we need and even in that… we cannot receive in our heart and mind all the love God has for us…that’s why we hunger for more of God.

My little brother and my mom are with Jesus and I know that at this very moment they are receiving the full power of the love of God.  Thank you Jesus!

So in John 3:16 where it says…for God “SO” loved the world…we need to really understand what is behind that little but powerful word …”SO”.

God's love 1

I want to say to someone reading this today that….God loves you!!!  Forget about trying to understand all the negative things that have happened to you in your life.  If you can hang in there…your eternal happy life will far outweighs anything you have gone through.  God loves you so much and has your best interest at heart.  Just know that He loves you and never doubt that even until your last breath of life!

A Prayer For Thanksgiving

Good day everyone. I want to share with you a poem I wrote on November 22, 2007. I’m not a poet and had never written a poem before….but this day… I was so grateful to have survived cancer and I was feeling very thankful for life when I wrote this.

I cooked thanksgiving dinner and invited my family over. Before we ate our dinner…we prayed together like we always do…but afterwards I read this poem. It was very emotional for me and you know it…I cried and so did my family…..but they were tears of great thankfulness and joy. I pray my poem blesses you too.

My Daily  prayer of Thanksgiving

How He daily sustains me and I don’t even see

Who will NOT get into heaven?

7 Comments

hell new best

This is the most serious blog I’ve ever written!

Who will NOT get into heaven and what will eventually happen to them.

 

But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars–they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” Revelation 21:8  UNBELIEVERS WILL NOT GET IN!!!!!!!

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

These are NOT my thoughts.  The bible says this!  These are God’s rules!  This is no joking matter!

I want to share with you a revelation I got about how bad it will be for those who have not repented from their original sin (Adam and Eve sin thing) and believed on the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

hell jesus praying

Remember when Jesus was going to be killed and He went out to pray?

And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. Luke 22:44  That is severe and extreme praying!!

 An angel from heaven had to come down and strengthen Jesus just to help Him to be able pray even harder.  Why do you think Jesus soul was in such anguish?  Because He willingly took on our nasty sins to save us from God’s wrath and had His soul temporarily forsaken by God!!!  Who the heck would want to be forsaken by God….even temporarily?   If Jesus being who He was and knowing what He was about to face had to pray to the point of being emotionally drained and needing heavenly assistance…what will happen to the unsaved who will be completely forsaken by God???  God will turn His back on them…..FOREVER AND EVER FOR ALL ETERNITY!!!!!!

hell judgement

At the Great White Throne Judgment people who have rejected Jesus  will receive their sentence for eternal punishment.  They will be cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:13-15 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death.  Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

Every human being’s name appears in the book of life at their conception.  But it is not permanently in the Lambs book of life.

hell2

Exodus 32:33 The LORD replied to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book.

When a person dies their physical body is separated from their soul.  If you die in sin you will also experience a spiritual death in which your soul is separated from God.  Then in the second death or the Great White Throne Judgment…That final Judgment separates your soul from God…..forever for all eternity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DO YOU GET HOW BAD THIS IS???????  This is NO JOKE!!!  I cried so hard today writing this!  Some of my family….my friends….my neighbors….even church members may not make it! 

hell11

1 Peter 4:18 And, “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”

 

THIS IS VERY SERIOUS!  People are dying very fast and so many at a one time!  Airplanes are crashing, car accidents, diseases, illnesses; murders are taking people out left and right.

 

People are believing in false doctrines such as everybody‘s going to heaven no matter what and there is no hell.

hell falsef d

INVESTIGATE THE REAL TRUTH FOR YOURSELF!!!  Read the bible. You only get one chance!

The Holy Spirit is on this earth right now speaking to every single unsaved person about Jesus.  Some people hear His voice and run to Jesus.  Some run from Jesus and some can’t make up their minds.  Many just ignore the voice inside they hear calling them.  Everybody has a chance to make it to heaven because of John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  Whoever means anybody…every single person!

Yes…this world is turning darker but…..

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Mathew 5:16                    Be a light!

Spread the Good News of Jesus so that people can be saved from the lake of fire!!!

hell lake of fire

 

If you have not repented from your sins and believed in Jesus Christ….please think about what I said today.  There are no do over’s!  Once you’re dead…that’s it.  There’s no oops!  There will only be….oh no!

You may think it will be fun in hell because many of your buddies will be there too…but I tell you…you will suffer the “WORST” torture.  There are no earthly words to describe just how horrible it will be for you…it’s that bad!!!  You are taking a huge risk everyday that you delay in your decision to believe in Jesus Christ.   Am I trying to scare you?  Yes I am!!  The bible tells you how much God loves you…but most non- Christians aren’t impresses with that.  So I wanted to tell you about what will happen if you chose to do things your own way.

hell door

Did you say you believed in Jesus and never really became a committed Christian?  You could be AT RISK!

Many will NOT get into heaven! It will be death and an demonic escort straight to hell!

I’m a Committed Christian.  Many years ago…I became very sick and thought I was going to die in the next few minutes.  I remember my life flashing before my eyes.  I began to ask God to forgive me for all the things I’ve done wrong.  It was like a natural instinct to do so.  Some people will die instantly.  There will be no chance to ask God’s forgiveness and not be destined for hell.

Please take today’s blog and God’s words …seriously!

There was a recent movie called Heaven is for Real.

Well…hell is for real too!…..Hell-0h!! Please don’t go!

Who will NOT get into heaven?  Don’t let it be…you!

I thank God for my Country USA

I was in the store yesterday and at 12pm the radio station the store had on played The Star Spangle Banner our National Anthem.  I’ve heard it in stores at noon many times but this day I began to tear up while I was  shopping.  I was thinking about the many Christians being persecuted for their faith all over the world and I just started thanking God for the country I live in.

  We just finished celebrating Veterans Day and I’m so grateful for the brave men and women who unselfishly serve and have served our country.  I’m thankful for the faith that the early settlers had and the many who incorporated God’s heart into the laws that govern our country.  Things are quickly changing though.

I am grateful to God for where he has placed me on this earth.  I don’t want to ever take His blessing for granted.

My heart and prayers goes out to the persecuted Church!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My heart cries out for the continued freedom to express our faith without fear of repercussions.

Our God Reigns!

God's time rolex

 

 

Because His old Timex must be broken!

Sometimes we pray and pray and the thing we are praying about is not answered right away.  I used to expect God to answer all my prayer request right away…but at the age of 62 years old…I’ve learned that God has His own timetable.  Some of my prayers are answered very quickly.  Some take a while and yet others are in a holding pattern.  Sometimes God even says no.

God doesn’t deal with time at all!  We humans live by it.  Everything we do has to do with time.  Thank God for the Holy Spirit who helps me to balance and deal with my timing and God’s “no” timing.  The Holy Spirit’s way of helping me with God’s timing is to teach me…..patience!

God is aware of our timing issues though:

Ecclesiastes 3

A Time for Everything

3 There is a time for everything,  and a season for every activity under the heavens:

    a time to be born and a time to die,  a time to plant and a time to uproot,   a time to kill and a time to heal,  a time to tear down and a time to build,  a time to weep and a time to laugh,  a time to mourn and a time to dance,  a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,   a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,  a time to search and a time to give up,     a time to keep and a time to throw away,  a time to tear and a time to mend,  a time to be silent and a time to speak,  a time to love and a time to hate,  a time for war and a time for peace.

 

Sometimes I feel His timing is a bit long or extended:

Revelation 22:12 “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.

Jesus is coming soon?  In my book He should have been here by now.

Genesis 5:27 Altogether, Methuselah lived a total of 969 years, and then he died.

Now that is to much time!  How many great-grand’s did he have?  I’m glad God has shortened the time because I could not wait over 900 years to see Him!God's time rolex

This is why I wrote this blog title.  God has some timing issues.  I need to get Him watch.

The lesson for this blog today….We need to understand that our God is in no rush when it comes to us.  He will take His time to do what’s necessary to prepare us for all He has planned for us in this life and the next.  We need to understand His ways, accept His help and guidance in dealing with time and then trust Him. God no time issues…we do.   We can sweat it or get it!

 

God's time pray

 

Father God,

Sometimes I feel you take a long time to answer my prayers when I ask you for some important things.  I get really upset and I even cry….sometimes I cry hard.  There was even a few times that I was real mad at you….I know you remember that.  I’m so glad that through all of that you never stopped loving me and you brought me through those hard times. 

You have taught me how to wait on you.  Even when the answers aren’t coming as fast as I would like or you say no….I know you know what’s best for me.  Father God…if I didn’t have the Holy Spirit I don’t know what I would do because He has done a great job in teaching me patience.    And Father…Jesus has been right there loving me and keeping my head together with something that no one else has ever been able to do for me…and that is to give me peace.

Even today as I started out my day laying out all my needs to you….I know my prayers reached your ears.  I know Jesus and the Holy Spirit are interceding on my behalf, I know you will never leave me or forsake me…so I am going to be still and sing my songs of worship to you.  I’m going to praise you!  I’m going to say Halleluiah anyhow!  I know in a matter of time I will be in your loving arms because my brother Jesus came and got me or you sent for me.  Father…I know all my prayers were answered when your Son died on the cross for me.  Thank you for my life…I love you so much!  Your Daughter…Tanya

P.S. Please help those who have read my blog today and are waiting for you to answers their prayer request.  Strengthen their heart and give them more of your grace and peace.  In Jesus name…Amen.

 

God has never owned a Timex watch.  He doesn't need a watch!!  There is no time in heaven.  Time is an earth thing.  God does know what we need and when we need it.  He is very aware of earth time and has full control over...our time.  It's time we learn to ....trust His timing!

Are we really in the last days?

the last days best

 

2 Timothy 3:1-5  1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.

 

1Timothy 1:1The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.

Jude 1:18 They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.”

the last days 1

Mathew 24:3-8 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.

the last days

We are so much so in the last days that people who are not Christians are questioning the sign of the times.  Christians know that these are the last days because of what the bible says will happen.  The news has been shocking ever since 9/11.  It’s been one disaster thing after another.  It’s all been so surreal!!!  It was hard to hear last week that there was yet another school shooting!

My own niece’s school here on Long Island NY was on lockdown last week because for the second time in 2 weeks there was a weapon on campus.  She had to sit on the floor with her teacher and classmates huddled together in her classroom with the door locked.  They could only whisper to each other.  This went on for over an hour until the all clear was given.

Here are a few things that are important to keep in perspective:                     

  1. Don’t fear!!!!!!!! The bible commands us not to be fearful over 300 times.
  2. Keep yourself prayed up and bible studied up.
  3. Use wisdom and use good common sense about your daily activities.
  4. Remember this: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Psalms 23:4(but also keep in mind all of Psalms 23)
  5. Trust the Lord!! 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you!!
  6. It’s a time for spreading the gospel and doing our part in this command of God.
  7. There are 3 important things we should remember about God.  The first thing is to remember who God is, the second thing is  that He loves His creations (John 3:11) and the third thing is that He made sure the enemy was defeated!!!! Thank you Jesus!

This is my most important advice to you today.  2 Timothy 4:16  Watch your life and doctrine closely.

 

the last days 4

 

What is sound doctrine?  Sound doctrine is the biblical truth. 

This is my take on this subject.   The bible is the word of God and is to be studied and obeyed by His creations.  In it has everything we need to guide our spiritual and moral consciousness.  We need to stick to the exact way God set this up for us and not be swayed by mans interpretation.  

When you sense that what you’ve heard is different from what you’ve personally read and understood from God’s word… then you need to listen to that still small voice telling you something is not right.  This is your life and you only get one chance at it… so make sure you pay very close attention to who tells you their interpretation of what Gods word says.  (You can even interpret things wrong yourself so do your homework and research…get a commentary and study!)

Without good sound doctrine your spiritual life will be at risk.   You will begin to feel fear and anxiety and things in you life will stop progressing as you had expected.  You could be at risk for getting off track with Gods plan for your life.

So again….

the last days 5

                   2 Timothy 4:16 16 Watch your life and doctrine closely.

                   1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you

The LORD bless you, and keep you; The LORD make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.!!!!!  (Number 6:24-26 )
