Genuine Repentance

1 Comment

camary1996:

This is a topic close to my heart. Repentance bring life and joy back to the believer! It’s necessary for our relationship with God for the believer and non-believer.

Originally posted on Revelations In Writing:

As I continue to study the scriptures in Exodus, I am reminded of how important genuine repentance truly is. Often, saying that we are sorry is simple, yet allowing our hearts and minds to make a change is an entirely different story. Pharaoh was a perfect example of why we ought not wait to really repent. God sent Moses and Aaron to deliver a series of messages to Pharaoh, warning him of what would happen if he did not allow God’s people to go. Pharaoh was a master of double-talk, as he would be convinced in the moment of discomfort to allow the Israelites to leave, yet as soon as the plague had passed, he took back his words and denied them their desert departure.

After the seventh plague had been poured out upon Egypt, and hail had destroyed men, livestock and all of the land, Pharaoh responded. Then Pharaoh…

Have you touched Jesus?

touch jesus

 

As I was reading my bible study for today I was reading about the woman with the issue of blood. We all know that story very well:

Mark 5: 27-29 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.

Jesus said this 2 times:

“Who touched my clothes?”

Who touched me?’

Jesus is interested in the ….”Who”. Is that who me? Is that who you? Yes!!!!!

Jesus has such power in who He is!!!!!! When He was a man on earth… He had that much power to heal this woman. He is now in His supernatural all powerful state and has incredible power to take care of us and all we need to do is touch Him? 1 Peter 5:7 says…. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

We must touch Jesus….First with acknowledging His Father and repenting for all wrong doing….then with our gratefulness for all He’s done for us…. And then adore Him with all the love from our hearts….then ask what you are in need of.

We must be all over Jesus…interacting with Him and having an ongoing daily and nightly…24/7 relationship Him. When we are in trouble we must reach out for Him.

 

Diana Ross recorded a song….”Reach out and touch. That’s what we need to do with Jesus! Sometimes it’s not easy to remember to do this throughout our day for every single need. We get distracted with all the daily drama.touch jesus 1

Speaking of drama… I bought a plastic sign the other day from the store that said… No drama!!

 

I’m just sick of drama!!!! But I tell you God wants our drama. He’s equip to deal with our drama it if we learn to reach out and…..you got it….touch Him!

 

Boldly reach out and grab hold of Jesus.  He wants you to!!!

Boldly reach out and grab hold of Jesus. He wants you to!!!

1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;

 

This morning when I was praying I kept hearing the word Adonai.  I called out to God….Adonai!  I talked to God and He spoke to me and we had our time together.  The thing I want to share with you is that we don’t own ourselves!!!  My life was purchased and the owner is God!  My life, my body, my soul is all for Him.  I live for God.  He is my owner…my master and my Lord!  I will be with Him one day and will serve Him forever.  My whole life has always been about Him and in 1984 I finally figured that out when my husband and I both became committed Christians and since that time…it’s all about serving Him and telling others about Him.

So I publicly say I am dedicated to my master…my Lord and my God.  It was God’s plan all along and I’m happy to be following HIS program!

The sooner one gets this… the more you will understand why you were born,  where you are going and you will have……peace.

God bless you all today!

Last Days?

The week before New Year’s Day the Lord gave me the message I wrote warning about what will take place in 2015. Sad to say…this is the first week of the New Year and many things have happened already. There are 357 days left in this year… oh my Lord….Help us!   So far in Paris France many  top executives of a company were executed.

In the USA a man threw his 5-year-old daughter off a bridge, 2 sister kill their 16-year-old brother, there’s been many highway car pileups because of the severe weather, 2 cops were buried and 2+ more have already been shot this year in this country. I tell you this not to alarm you but to let you know just how serious life is now.   Many feel Christ return is very near. We don’t know the exact day of His arrival but we can recognize the signs of the times.

I want to say to you today to… Do God’s will! Obey Him! Know Him! Walk with Him! Listen to the Holy Spirit. Don’t get ready to go with Jesus….be ready!

last days

In light of what’s going on in this earth…..the things of this world don’t seem to be that important anymore. What’s important is our faith, family, friend, love, and life.  Money, cars, houses and things…not so much.

Mark 8:36 And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?

Let’s change our perspective on life and be more God minded and more heavenly minded. Let’s think about others eternal destiny and snatch them away from Satan’s grip. Life is very short and tomorrow is not promised to anyone!

New Year’s message and prayer for 2015

8 Comments

 

2015

Last year the Lord told me that it was going to be a “prosperous” year for His children. I’m His child and I can tell you that I have had a very prosperous year. God has met all my needs spiritually and financially. Spiritually…God is doing a new thing and taking me in new directions and it is incredible! He has given me a new voice, new friends and the best thing…more of Him. A closer walk! Halleluiah!!! The Lord also gave my husband an unexpected raise! I want to thank my God publicly for all He has done in my life!!

Now for the New Year of 2015:

2015 1

In 2015 you will need to put on your seat belt for it! It’s going to be a very wild ride. “Breaking news”… will be the word for the day very often. Everything on earth for all its human inhabitants is very unstable and will continue to be so.

Many people will be fearful. Many will fear God has abandoned them. Anger will be the feeling of many. Many will turn to drug and alcohol use. Those who have weak minds may lose their mind. This world will groan like a woman in labor like never before. Some of the enemy’s antics will be sudden and swift. In my spirit… I hear lots of crying….but not only crying but wailing.

2015 2

I’m angry and I hate everybody who doesn’t agree with my point of view!

 

Many people will be out of control. There will be a lot of lying and deceitful actions. Human life will mean nothing to those looking for trouble and someone to unleash their evil upon. Evil will infect the human mind like a plague. Those who hate will express that and will not even be aware of what they are doing because evil has blinded them. Sin will be rampant.

There is much more but I feel led to stop here. It’s a lot to take in. I usually have positive messages so this is hard for me but I feel this is what I’m led to share with you.

If you are a born again believer in Jesus Christ….a Christian….this is what I have to say to you….”FEAR NOT”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have all the fullness of God!!!! Our Father is….”POWERFUL”!!!!

2015 3

Your weapon is your sword….the word of God! Your weapon for the battle is your prayer life! Your Helper is the Holy Spirit! Your best friend and the one who can unleash incredible answer to your prayers is Jesus Christ!

So what is there to fear? Death? Even death is gain…..eternal life with God? Never to suffer or shed tears again?

2015 for my brothers and sister in Christ….I hear this…… “Honor the Lord”…. with your service”. Get your work clothes on and be available for the Lord’s call. If you’re already doing stuff…. keep up the good work. There is a lot of jobs/ministries looking for faithful helpers. Find something and get involved. “Honor the Lord with your service”.

———————————————————————————

Important:

God is asking EVERYONE to spread the good news. God is asking everyone to be bold in their faith. Go out on that limb for the Lord. Take care of God’s business and He’ll take care of yours. Give God your time, money and talents. You will be blessed!!!!! We need all of God’s extra blessing and rewards that He will bless us with in this life as we put Him first in all we do.

——————————————————————————-

It’s an honor to serve the Lord in any way we can. Whatever your gift or talent is…natural or acquired use it for God’s glory. This is what’s going to bring about many blessings for you in 2015. Many of you will see miracles and many get mighty victories.

2015 5

“HAVE FAITH IN GOD”!!!!!!!!

“EXPECT A MIRACLE”!!!!!!!!

“BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD!!!!!!!!

 

Father God,

I want to first thank you God for all you have done for us this year. As challenging as it has been….we are all still here and alive. Thank you for sustaining us every day. Thank you for your protection and for all the guardian angels you’ve dispatched on our behalf. Thank you for every drop of food we had to put in our mouths. Thank you for water. Thank you for all the things you did for us that we didn’t even notice.

Lord….we need you! We can’t do this life without you. You are our only source of help and support. You are our strength. You are our protector and defender. Cover us with your wings Father.

Help us to overcome our fears in this frightening world as we put our trust in you alone. Thank you in advance for all the victories in 2015. In these last 2 days of 2014…I ask you to forgive us for anything we have done to displease you. Jesus wash us clean with your blood. Lord we give you all the praise Glory and honor that you deserve!

I ask you these things in Jesus name….Amen

From your children

 

Philippians 4:4-7

4Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

A Christmas prayer and traditions

10 Comments

 

Jesus is the reason for the Christmas season

Jesus is the reason for the Christmas season

 

Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

 

christmas 2

When my kids were little… Christmas involved a big family traditional celebration.  You know… Church programs, gifts for each child, cookie making, Christmas dinner and the list goes on.  With 6 kids it was a big deal.  When they were older we changed our family tradition to opening all Christmas presents on Christmas Eve beginning this event with their dad reading the Christmas story from the bible and then prayer.   Christmas day was a birthday party for Jesus celebrated with a family dinner gathering.  It was Jesus day!

Christmas 1

 

 

Now that my 6 children are grown and living on their own…my husband and my tradition has changed once again.    Our tradition now is a family dinner and a small amount of gift giving.

I have a new philosophy about Christmas now at my ripe old age of 62.  I still think celebrating Christmas   is a wonderful idea because Jesus was born and without His birthday we humans would not have had an opportunity to get right with our Holy God and have a chance for eternal life.

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.

For Jesus

For Jesus

 

My focus has shifted now to celebrating Christmas throughout the year and this also includes Resurrection Day also.  I have one focus now days and that is to be all God wants me to be every day.  My focus is on pleasing Him and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.  Every day for me is celebrating the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus.  I see my life these days as being all about my Triune Father God.  Every day I look for some who needs encouragement or who needs Jesus.  I’m also very grateful for my immediate family(husband and kids) and spend the other part of my time/life holding them close to my heart.

So I do celebrate the holidays but my focus is shifted.  I’m not saying others should adopt my views…I’m just saying this is how I’m feeling at this time in my life.

Christmas without Jesus and Easter without Jesus is what?…………..

Jesus is every day …all day and all night.  He is to be celebrated and praised 24/7.

There is one tradition that Jesus commanded us to celebrate and that is Holy Communion.  I do that often whether at church or at home.  Jesus felt that His death, resurrection and His sacrifice is important and I’m sensitive in what’s important to Jesus.

christmas 12

If the true meaning of Christmas has gotten a little away from you….you can put the focus back on Jesus.  Think of a new tradition to incorporate more of Jesus into your Christmas celebration.  See where you can tone down the commercialism and bump up the giving to others and keeping more of a biblical view of Jesus birth.

Heavenly Father,

We humble ourselves before you and thank you for sending your precious Son Jesus so that we can be in a right place with you.  God…we thank you for all the love you’ve shown us.  Lord as we celebrate the birth of your Son….please know that we worship and praise your Son Jesus for all the love He’s bestowed on us by sacrificing His own life for us.  I pray for those who have lost loved ones and miss them so much during this Christmas season.  I pray for those struggling financially and won’t have much during this time.  I pray for those who are sick and for those who are suffering from depression during this season.  I pray for those who need a Savior.  I pray that as this year closes out that there is still time left for people to spread your love and let their light shine for you.  Thank you for all the grace and mercy you’ve extended to us this year.  Father God we give you all the praise, honor and Glory that you deserve and we ask these things in Jesus name….Amen.

I wish and pray for all my blog followers to have a very happy and safe Christmas!  I love you guys!

Mathew 1:23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).

Look for my annual New Year’s message.

Do you believe in the power of God to bless you?

believe

 

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
