(HOROSCOPES & FORTUNE TELLING  IS NOT FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES!}

Last week I was approached in a store by a woman who told me she does readings and she handed me a business card which showed she does a few things including tarot card readings. I looked at her deep in her eyes and told her God doesn’t like that and it says not to do that in the bible. She said she believes in God and she doesn’t do witchcraft. I again told her that what she is doing is wrong and she needs to stop doing it. So I gave her back her card and we parted ways. She avoided me for the rest of my time in the store. I’ve been praying for her every day. I’ve had many encounters like this and told them all the same thing. One spiritualist told me this is how their family makes a living. Many of these people go to church.

Please read the following scriptures and then I will share my thoughts:

Deuteronomy 18:10-11   Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord;

Acts16:16-19   Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. 17 She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” 18 She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her. 19 When her owners realized that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to face the authorities.

Micah 5:12 I will destroy your witchcraft and you will no longer cast spells.

It doesn’t get any clearer than that! The bible is God’s word and commands to us all and there is no getting around it!

People are always asking me what is my sign and I always respond…”the sign of the cross.” They get annoyed when I say that.

Let me break it down….

DON’T DO THESE THINGS:

  1. Communicating with the dead or consulting mediums
  2. Palm reading
  3. Tarot cards readings
  4. Following horoscopes or signs of the Zodiac
  5. Predicting the future or psychics and fortune-telling
  6. Performing any type of witchcraft
  7. Divination or the occult
  8. Superstition and spells
  9. New age… outer body, new world order, channeling, yoga, reincarnation, crystal power, creating your own reality, holistic, meditation, visualization, god is in everything, relativism, pure harmony and unity.

Leviticus 19:31 ‘Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.

Isaiah 8:19 When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?

Knowing God the way I do I know …. He gets really ticked off when anyone including His very own children do this!!!! It is SIN!  God is holy and these practices are unholy. Unholiness is sin every day of the week! Don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s ok. The devil wants you to be separated from God and he’s real sneaky in getting you to think this stuff is a harmless form of entertainment.

I know you may miss your loved one and my heart truly goes out to you. They are not going to be sending you any messages. Do not seek out these mediums,  instead ask God for the grace you need to get through your heartache. He will give it to you!

Don’t ask anyone about your future. Only God has this information and if you need direction read your bible or ask God directly. You will get an answer!

If you’re involved in new age, witchcraft or any form of the occult this is your future: Revelation 21:8 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.”

Why the heck would you want this for yourself and your children? Many children and teens cartoons and TV shows contain witchcraft! He devil is fooling you! Let’s not be ignorant of the devil evil schemes. The devil hated all human before the earth was made and devised a plan to yank you from God. He was jealous that God was planning to redeem you and adopt you into His family and make you His very own child. satan is doing everything he can to get us to turn our backs on God so that we will be cut off from Him.

Do this:

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 1 Peter 5:8-9.

We need to be alert:

in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes. 2 Corinthians 2:11

We are all responsible for what we get into our soul, mind and spirit. Don’t mess with ANYTHING that is occultish. Stick with the information and instructions that God has given us to follow in His word. That is safe and profitable for our soul!

How can you know your future? How can you hear from God?

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT VERSE!!!

*****John 16: 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.*****

“The Holy Spirit will tell you what is yet to come!!!!!!!!!”

P.S. If you are doing these things I strongly suggest that you renounce any allegiance to these things and repent…Jesus will forgive you! James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

 

“There is nothing God doesn’t know about your life. You may know the past and present, but God also knows the future. Choose today to walk securely – not in what you know, but in what you believe.  David Jeremiah”

I stole something

sin

 

 

Exodus 20:15 “You shall not steal.

This is the 8th commandment.sin-1

I am ashamed to publicly admit this but I feel the Lord is telling me to share this. I use an artificial sweetener called Splenda. I always carry extra. I went to my local coffee shop and I fixed my coffee with sin-2all my fixings… milk and Splenda but I took a few extra Splenda just in case I needed some in the future. I felt that I shouldn’t have at the time but did it anyway. It haunted me and I knew I needed to ask Jesus to forgive me. I did repent. I also forgave myself and had to let go of it. I want to be perfect for my Father God and me giving Him less is so upsetting to me.

Paul wrote about this in detail in the book of Romans.  Please read all of this:

Romans 7:14-25 We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.

I wanted to blog about these scriptures for some time now now but I didn’t expect to give a real life example. Although Jesus took away our original sin…we Christians still have a sin nature. We will NOT reach perfection until we die and go to heaven. Because of Jesus sacrifice on the cross, we can ask Him for forgiveness right now and He WILL forgive us when we sin. Sometimes we can think we are so good down here on earth. We pray, go to church, help others but we still sin. Some sins are obvious like what I did and others are much more subtle. Sin can be removed but we must own up to it and repent.sin-3

The Holy Spirit in us helps us by bringing Gods word to our memory and the truth of that word cuts into us and pierces our consciousness which should cause us to repent. I don’t need unrepented sin in my life. It can block my prayers to God or cause God to fix that problem in a way I don’t really like. (I.E – a possible trial )

It took me 2 weeks to try to write this blog because who in the world would want to publically confess sin. But I want people to know that just because I love the Lord so much and write about Him so much doesn’t mean I’ve arrived and I’m super spiritual. I’m trying to make it like everyone else. People can hold you up on a pedestal or you can get up there yourself but I need to keep it real and be humble at all times no matter what.

My prayer for today:

Dear Father,

Psalms 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

Psalm 51:7 Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

I ask this in Jesus name….Amen

The Glory of God

1 Comment

glory-1

 

 

First before I get into my thoughts and God’s word about this incredible topic of the Glory of God I want to say that my words are PITIFUL!!! Yes…really so pitiful that I almost don’t want to write this because of What Gods’ glory means. Compared to where He is and who He is what can I truly say? I’m glad I’m typing this because my lip can do His glorious majesty no justice!

 

Exodus 33:18,21-22 Then Moses said, “I pray You, show me Your glory!” Then God answered Moses:

But He said, “You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!” 21 Then the Lord said, “Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock; 22 and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.glory of God 3

God…”show me your glory” should be the prayers of us all! Why? Because when you have experienced the glory of God it will motivate you to want more of God. It will also motivate you to want others to see Gods glory through your life. Why else would God reveal any of His glory with us?

There are different aspects of God’s glory so let’s break it down:

  1. There’s His physical Glory or glory from His presence. Revelation 21:21-23   And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. 23 And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb.
  2. There is the glory that comes from what has been done as a result of His children’s obedience and living a righteous life. Ephesian 2:10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
  3.  There’s the glory that comes from Gods creativity i.e. the universe, planets, and stars. Isaiah 6:3 And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.”  
  4. There is Glory that comes from God blessing His children with victories, miracles and answered prayers. John 11:4 When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.”
  5. There is glory that can give you strength when you are going through the absolute worst situation. Stephen is getting ready to be murdered.   Act 7:55 But being full of the Holy Spirit, he gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God;

 

God gets the glory for everything good and holy that emanates from Him and He gets all the glory for all good things on this earth! No one else is responsible for goodness. Only God has that kind of power and is power.

The word glory according to the dictionary means brilliance, radiance, honor, renowned, highly praiseworthy, fame, admiration or someone impressive. All of these terms don’t come anywhere close to describing God’s glory.

God’s glory is His perfection and His holiness. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Romans 3:23 We fall short now because we can’t be 100% holy and perfect. This can only happen when we make the transition to heaven. In fact we will be in it!glory of God 4

God’s glory cannot be contained. The more I speak about this the more I feel I falling short.

As we learn more about the attributes of God such as His glory we will grow to know Him more. We always have to work on knowing Him because we can’t see Him. So ponder about the Glory of God.

Today I challenge you to pray the Moses pray Exodus 33:18,21-22 Then Moses said, “I pray You, show me Your glory!” I pray that you experience the “Glory of God”!!!!!

The mighty deeds of God

Leave a comment

good-deeds

 

In the book of acts the disciples started speaking in other tongues and people heard them saying this in their own language….”we hear them in our own tongues speaking of the mighty deeds of God. “Acts 2:10

What are the mighty deeds of God?

Psalms 77:11-15 I will call to mind the deeds of the Lord; I will remember your wonders of old. 12 I will meditate on all your work, and muse on your mighty deeds. 13 Your way, O God, is holy. What god is so great as our God? 14 You are the God who works wonders; you have displayed your might among the peoples. 15 With your strong arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. Selah

Some old mighty “deeds of God” are the creation, the deliverance of the Jewish people out of Egypt, the making of a man and a woman, the restoration of Jobs family and wealth, the unique birth of Jesus Christ, the many miracle signs and wonder that Jesus did, the resurrection of Jesus Christ and many others.good-deeds-2

Some new mighty “deeds of God” is God saving my soul, giving me a wonderful God-fearing husband, all my premature children’s lives being saved from death, healing my son from the severe effects from brain damage/ cerebral palsy, healing me from cancer, and many more miracles and answered prayer in my life.

I’m sharing this to say that we should all be sharing the mighty deeds of God old and new. Of all the things that could have been said through these men in the book of Acts…the power of the Holy Spirit interpreted their language and declared the mighty “deeds of God”. This is called…testifying….something we Christians should be doing about our Father God all the time to each other, to strangers, co-workers, friends and family.

Are you depressed today?…Read this!

depression

 

Many people will suffer from depression at some point in their lives. You might have this problem today. It happens. God addresses this in the bible. Here are 3 versions of the same scripture:

2 Corinthians 7:6 But God, who comforts the depressed, comforted us by the coming of Titus; NASB

2 Corinthians 7:6 But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus, NIV

2 Corinthians 7:6 Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus; KJV

The big take away here is… “But God!” Who will comfort you! God will also bring people into your life to be a blessing to you. This may be medical help or a good friend. I was healed of depression in 1983 and looking back on my experiences God did provide both medical help and many good friends and family that helped me during those difficult years.depression-1

David in the bible cried out to God for help when he was in emotional despair. Psalms 43:5 Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God. (NASB) Let this be your prayer also.

More comforting help are these next 2 scriptures verses:

2 Corinthians 6:16… “I will dwell in them and walk among them;… God indwells us Christians and He is here with us! We are not alone in this. We may feel like it sometimes but the bible says God is in us and with us.

2 Corinthians 6:18 And I will be a father to you, And you shall be sons and daughters to Me, “Says the Lord Almighty. I am Gods daughter. My Father God loves me. I trust my Father God to watch over me. With His help I know that I can hold on through my suffering.

This scripture verse really helps me to hold on through these trials.  One day in my future I will never shed another tear!!   Revelation 21:4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” My troubles will not last always! There will be rest for my weary soul! I know I can hang in there!

Psalms 34:18 The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

God has done this wonderful mending in my life many many times! He will do it for you! Be encouraged not only from my mere words but with the words of God. God’s words have power and are life-giving and life changing!

God please bless all those who need this word today. God please heal the broken-hearted and those who are crushed in their spirit. Lord… some have struggled their whole lives with depression and some are depressed because of going through some hard difficulties. I know you care so much about what they are going through. Please strengthen them and lift up their countenance. Thank you for taking care of them and thank you for in advance for healing their mind and emotions. I ask these things in Jesus name…amen.

I care about what you’re going through.  I’m here for you!  I know it’s hard right now.  I have faced some challenging things myself.  I called out to my Father and He strengthened me.  He will do the same for you!  All my love, Your brother… Jesus

I’m truly grateful for you!!! I had not considered myself a writer in 2011 when I first starting writing my blog. I really didn’t think anybody would be reading them. I was wrong and I have gained many blog friends over the years. I would like to give a shout out to a few of these long time and faithful friends…thanks-to-all-last

Thank you all who take the time to read my blogs. I pray and take a lot of time to share with you what the Holy Spirit gives me. Sometimes it’s straight from my deep personal prayer with the Lord. My blogs have helped me the most because of all the studying just to write one. I’m learning a lot too.

So many have written to me about their own experiences and I’m so blessed to read that. I pray that I can continue to be of service to all of you for the growth for the kingdom of God.

God bless every one of you in Jesus name!

In the Lord’s service,

These are my own thoughts on the enemy of our soul. I feel there is way too much credit and thoughts given to the devil and his demons. Yes… they are powerful enemy’s but they ain’t all that! God created lucifer/the devil and God used him for His purposes for our benefit. satan’s demise was preordained from the beginning of God’s plan for our redemption. The devil can only have but so much affect over our lives because of God’s plan for us and because of Jesus Christ. Well that’s only if you’re God’s child because if you’re not…guess who your daddy is? John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires.

God has a whole big well thought out plan for humanity. His plan was to create human beings, redeem them and reclaim every person for His kingdom. In His whole big plan for us satan is a small part compared to God’s entire plan. satan is nothing but a tool!!!! This tool will be destroyed one day soon!!! He’s tried to get people to see him as this big, powerful, scary creature. He tries to get us to focus on him by pointing out His effort in attacking us and we wind up rebuking him all day long. He wants us to worship him in such a way that we do it by talking about him all the time not realizing that we are giving him too much attention.

I will be smart and wise and know how to deal with him. I know he’s here and I know that he can be dangerous but I will NOT focus on him because that is giving him the attention he desires from me.jesus-is-the-best-1

God has given us the tools and weapons to deal with the enemy and Jesus demonstrated how to put satan in his place with the word. Jesus dealt with satan when he was directly confronted by him.   Jesus was well aware of the devils presence but didn’t go looking for the enemy nor did He constantly point him out. He did spend a lot of time talking with His Father.  Jesus spent more time casting all His care on His Father in prayer.

My whole point of today’s blog is to let you know that God preordained to used satan’s evil, lying, deceitful booty for us!!!!! He is only a PART of a plan for our benefit!! Focus on God…focus on Jesus…focus on the Holy Spirit! Be wise, prayerful, smart, knowledgeable and obedient in the things of God. Quit thinking the devil is all that. God gave us power and a sound mind and no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD. Isaiah 54:17

Revelation 20:10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Ezekiel 28:18 – 19 All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.'”

God has a plan to get satan out of your life forever!!!!! He will never bother you again! You will be free from any more suffering forever! The devil ain’t all that and stop acting like he is! Have 100% faith in God’s whole plan for your life!!!!!!!!!!!
