Your Good Shepherd

Jesus sheppard

 

 

John 10:7 & 9 Therefore Jesus said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and FIND PASTURE.

John 10:2-4 The one who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice.

Psalms 23:1-3 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.

 

After reading these 3 scriptures you have to know that you’re in such a good place with Jesus. Stay in that pasture! You will find peace, calmness and refreshment for your soul. Stay within the pastures boundaries for your protection.

God’s Message For Today

love God

 

I need to share what happened in my prayer closet yesterday. I heard this scripture:

Matthew 21: 37-38  37 Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.

 

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind!love God 3

 

LOVE GOD!” He created us with perfect love for us. We need to love Him back….really really hard! Love God like you’ve lost your mind.

But are you sure of His love for you because if you’re not….you won’t be able to love Him like crazy.

I now spend 10% of my time in prayer asking God for my prayer request and 90% of my prayer time loving Him, worshipping Him and praising Him. At this time in my life I need to be one with Him in a deep relationship. I make my prayer request known to Him every day and throughout the day as things come up… but I worship a lot.

The greatest commandment is to love God with everything that we have in us.

What is the benefit of loving God this hard? A unique deeply close relationship with God. Jesus did so much for us to have this close relation with God and the Holy Spirit keeps trying to reveal the deep things of God to us. Why? So we can have a closer walk with Him and because God created us for Himself.love God 1

I’m not special in my relationship with God. He loves us all!!! I have been telling people for years to love God. Every time I sing I tell people to love God. I’ve handed out pamphlets I made about my life telling people to love God. I blog often about this. I will tell people to love God until day I die! Jesus could have said anything for the greatest commandment but He said “love God”.

If you walked up to me and asked me how much I love God I would try to tell you and start crying really badly. Ask yourself that question right now. Is something being stirred up from deep in your heart and you feel overwhelmed with love for God?

My love for God deepened much more about 5 years ago when my husband taught a lesson on how God planned to create us to be His child and the angel lucifer was sooo jealous that he tried to destroy God plan for humanity. We are closer to God than the angels. He even made us in His own image. We all are very very special to God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit!!!!! God so loved the world and came down here (Emanuel) to save us from eternal damnation! Do you get how much He loves you?

Jesus said…..”Love God”….it the GREATEST command! What more can I say?

A true story to share with you

Leave a comment

story 1

 

 

Once upon a time there was God who always existed. He had a Son who was the wordstory 1 and was later called Jesus when He lived on the earth. There also existed Holy Spirit who could do amazing things. One day they (God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit) decided to create humans. They said they would make these beings in their own image and these beings would be so loved and they would even adopt them into their own family. From the very beginning they loved what they were going to create but they knew this needed a special plan because of their own holiness.

God had also created other being called angels. They were God’s helpers. One of these angels knew God’s plans to create beings that were much more special than him so he devised an evil plan to destroy these humans and separated them from God forever.story 1

When God heard what this angels plans were, He kicked him out of heaven and sent him to the planet He created for His beloved human beings. 

God created the first man and then the first woman. They were perfect in every way and had control over all the other creatures that roamed the earth.

So the angel who was kicked out of heaven tricked the first man and woman to be disobedient to God. From then on life for man and woman became very difficult. The worst thing that happened to man because of his disobedience was now called sin and he was now an enemy of God and He was separated from the Lord because of sin.

So now God had to enact the next part of His plan and He asked His only Son Jesus to sacrifice Himself to take away the sins of mankind.  He agreed and gave His life for mankind. So now man had the opportunity to be put right with God. This was an eternal lifesaver for man because without Jesus sacrifice mankind was doomed. The word of Jesus sacrifice was spread by way of 12 men who were Jesus friend and helpers. They spread this good news all around many communities who shared it also and it eventually went viral! Today over 2,000 years later the word is still spreading.story

God also gave mankind a very unusual tool to help him navigate through his entire life and to help him understand all about God and His plant or him.  It was in the form of a book. This is not just any book but this is a very unique book. There has never been another book in all of earths history that’s as unique as this special book. There is power in the words of this book. If you believe in Jesus Christ God’s Son you will have understanding in what it says by way of the Holy Spirit giving you the unique ability to “get it”. People who don’t believe in Jesus will not “get it”. The words in the book can help you to make it through life. Let me tell you that you need this book! It’s part of God’s plan to take care of you.story 1

Another part of God’s plan is for you to be able to talk to Him WHEN EVER you want to. Hey….you can talk to Him all day and night!   How great is that?

So let’s review this true story.   The creator of the entire universe created you. He loved you so much that He wanted you to be with Him forever. A fallen angel was jealous of you so he devised a plan to separate you from God. But God had a plan to put you right with Himself.  So Jesus, God’s Son came to earth and died for you so that you could have a blessed life on earth and an eternal home in heaven. You’ll never suffer again. You will see the creator face to face one day and be loved by Him forever. And all you have to do is believe in Jesus Christ, stop sinning, obey God, love God and love others?

You know…this is a great story! It’s like the story of Cinderella. A difficult story with a great ending. This very true story of mankind is a difficult story but it has a GREAT ending!!!

Revelation 21:3-7 3And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 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.”

5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

6 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. 7 Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children.

Great Faith is Possible

These days are very difficult for many people. We need faith in God’s abilities! Hope this blog can help build your faith further today. God bless you!

God Speaks I Listen

Luke 7:1-10
When Jesus had finished saying all this to the people who were listening, he entered Capernaum. 2 There a centurion’s servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die. 3 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant. 4 When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, “This man deserves to have you do this, 5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue.” 6 So Jesus went with them.

He was not far from the house when the centurion sent friends to say to him: “Lord, don’t trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. 7 That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed…

It happened again in the USA. Needed to repost this.

My House

I live right by the water here on Long Island NY.  My family and I are all safe…Praise the Lord!  We’ve lost a lot and are suffering discomfort and inconvenience but we have our lives!!!!!!!!!  Words can’t explain or express the shock and ramifications of all of this.  This was a catastrophic event here in the Northeast!!

I knew this was going to happen about 6 weeks ago and I said some great events were going to happen in the future in a few of my blogs this year.  Why?  You can find it in those blogs but I’m still trying to sought out the reason as to why I knew.  This was not the first time.  I knew about a few other catastrophic event.  I’m a prayer intercessor and I’m very sensitive  in my spirit and I do get many visions and messages.  I just pray about everything and I…

What in the world is going on?

Mark 4:38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?

 

jesus hugging 4

With all that has been going on in our world I hear this cry from God’s children…” Master, carest thou not that we perish?”jesus hugging 2

Many are crying out for relief from their suffering. Some have drowned their sorrows with drugs and alcohol. Some can’t deal with it and are very fearful and depressed. Many people are confused. A large number of people have abandoned the faith. Some have even taken their own life. People who are evil are doing the most despicable things. Even this plant earth is going through severe decay due to earthquakes, strange weather patterns, pollution and fires.

Last week many lives were lost and so many homes were destroyed by hurricanes, floods, tornados and fires. Today were are waiting to see the results from 2 back to back hurricanes. Many homes and lives were also lost this week from a horrible earthquake. There are also the threats of bombs and wars. There is genocide going on right now. The treat of terrorist attacks are looming over us and so on.

I personally have many issues/trials going on in my life as I’m sure all of you do too. “Lord carest not that we perish?”

This is truly a lot to take in for sure. Please read these very important scripture verses and think about how sin and worldwide suffering came on man and on the earth as a result of Adams disobedience. His disobedience caused a chain reaction of events which is why we are experiencing so much pain and destruction all around us and in our lives:

Romans 8:18-23 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.

22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.

Everything on this earth was affected by sin. Jesus came to make things right and He was completely successful but we and this planet are in a state of decay until God’s glory will be revealed. We’ll have new bodies and there will be a new heaven and a new earth one day. The power and majesty of God will be revealed through our redemption!! Glory to God!!!

You know when I was in labor, it hurt very very bad….but those last 20 minutes just before getting that baby out ramped up even more to be the worse pain eve!!!! I believe this is going on in this world right now. If you are a child of God you will not be affected by all this pain one day in your future. 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.” Revelation 21:4

But for right now life is sure hurting really bad for many people. When the trials, suffering, pain, bad stuff comes, we just have to go through it. That is a fact and it is life. God even warned us about this.

1 Peter 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

My thoughts on this present suffering:

I predicted in a past blog many years ago that very difficult things are going to happen. It’s been hard for me to tell people what I heard during one of my prayer times. After 9/11 all the religious houses of worship from every religion were packed out. People wanted answers and many were very afraid. Unfortunately all that fear and inquiry wore off. These new crisis I believe will again cause people to think about their souls, safety, wealth, health, family, mortality and spirituality. Suffering and fear cause this kind of reaction in people.

Would God allow this? Well there are a few examples of how God dealt with disobedience in the past.

Genesis 6: 11-13 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. 13Then God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth.

Genesis 19:24 Then the LORD rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven,

I say all the time that….”God don’t play!!!!!!” God is not a joke or some old school myth. He didn’t play with folks in the past and He’s not playing with folks now. He said for us to be Holy Because He is Holy. That means set yourself apart from the world and be obedient to Him and live right. There are consequences for our disobedience.

Even Jesus got really upset with the sinfulness of man when he was here on earth.

John 2:15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. Jesus was NOT a happy camper!!!

God don’t play and Jesus don’t play either! Now don’t even think about messing with the Holy Spirit.

God’s children have been having “revivals” trying to get people reenergized and to get the unsaved in Church but I tell you God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit have their own plans for their creations and it’s in full swing.

What is the answer and what can we do? God told me Tanya Nemley this….”Do what I have asked you to do. Stay focused. Don’t look all around at what others are doing or not doing. Do what I told you to do.”

Every one of God’s children have a job to do. It all has to do with building His kingdom.

God will give favor to His obedient children and will be there when we call out to Him! We will still go through things but I can tell you from personal, past and recent experiences that God has been there for me and provided me a way out!!! An example…my family was affected by hurricane Sandy. We were flooded and lost a lot. God restored EVERYTHING! I had cancer and had to have a few operations but I tell you God was right there helping me through the whole thing! Yeah I had some pain but the strength and healing God gave me was amazing. I’ve had the worst financial trials but God saw me through that!!! In my first marriage I suffered extreme violence and almost lost my life…BUT GOD!!!!! I’m here to speak of His goodness. God bought me out of that mess!!!

 

jesus hugging 5

You may not understand all that’s going on around the world and in your life. But understand this….God is amazing and He is available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week…365 days a year!!! He will help you through WHATEVER you are going through!!!! I’m not lying. The bible says so!! (Make sure there is no sin or unforgiveness in your life. God does not bless mess!)

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

I know that life is really hard for many of my brothers and sisters in Christ right now. I know many of you are crying out to Father God for Help. That is the thing to do. (1 Peter 5:7) Fear not! Trust God to see you through your circumstance.

jesus hugging 6

 

I want to pray for you:

Dear powerful and almighty Father God,

I’m Praying for (add your name here) right now. Father you know what they are going through. You have seen their tears and you have heard their cries. You know their fears and the aching in their heart. I know you have so much love and compassion for them right now. Jesus your own son is very well acquainted with extreme pain and very difficult trials. He knows how it feels to go without food, be on a stormy sea, to lose a friend, to be persecuted and to have people turn on Him. So God I know you know how it feels to go through these things. Help (your name) to keep their mind on you because I know that if they do they will have perfect peace. Please help them get well acquainted with you and your amazing grace. Remove the fear that’s hiding in their heart and replace it with the knowledge of memorized scripture reminding them of your great faithfulness. That home that is flooded, lost, damaged, the child that was lost, the wife/husband that passed away, the job that was lost, the health that is declining, the money that is needed, the mental anguish that plagues their mind and all the other sufferings that is plaguing your child….Help them please. For those who have not spoken to you in a while or are angry at you, forgive them and have mercy. For the one who really needs a hug from you…let them feel your presence.   Father God…we all need you right now. Please help us so that through our victory and blessings we may give you all the praise and bring glory to your name. I ask these things in Jesus name Amen.

Psalms 23:4 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.

Mark 4:40  He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

 

[To those who have never asked Jesus to be their Lord and Savior…I pray that you can see the signs of the times and believe in Jesus so that you may have help available for you in times of trouble and the greatest thing…eternal life in heaven with God. Time is truly running out.]

To Know God

3 Comments

Knowing God 6

                         How close can we be to God?

 

Philippians 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

To know means to experience, to be aware of, to clearly understand, know well assuredly, to take notice of, to become familiar with, perceive directly, to recognize the nature of, to be acquainted with, to comprehend the nature of someone., to gain knowledge or facts about someone, to get information in to your mind about a subject, to understand something, to become aware of, to be certain of something,

The definition of intimate to be close to someone in a personal, familiar and very private way. To be connected mentally and have a physical and emotional relationship with a person.

Knowing God 2

That I may know Him is a very intimate statement. THIS IS MY PRAYER FOR EVERYONE that you will know God intimately! I have spent a lot of prayer for others to obtain this relationship with God. I’ve also tried to express this through my teachings, blogs and in my music. There is no other relationship in this universe as important as knowing God. John 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.

 

Knowing God 9But how do you get to be personal with God when He is invisible and doesn’t speak in an audible voice to us.   The answer to this is an easy one. Through prayer and bible study. Sounds really doable but in reality it’s something that takes time and patience to accomplish. But when this relationship gets really going as you grow in the Lord…oh my goodness! James 4:8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you……

Knowing God 5

I have this relationship with God now but I tell you….I have to Stay in prayer and bible study to keep it fresh in my life. God is always available for intimacy with us 24 hours a day. I on the other hand have distractions from life’s daily stuff, I have the enemy trying real hard to keep me doubting and distracted and I have stuff that I do that keeps me busier than I need to be. I need to make room for the Lord in my heart and in my life. Even in my marriage and my great relationship with my husband we have to continually stoke up the flames of love because as humans our relationship can change and grow cold. Let me make this clear… God’s love will NEVER grow cold toward us!!! We can in fact grow cold towards him. Deuteronomy 6:5 Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

There is another important fact here…you’ve got to WANT to be involved with the Lord! God very patiently waits for us to be involved with Him but we’ve got to desire or long to have a close relationship with Him. Psalms 42:1 …As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.

 

You need to understand these 4 things about God to develop a close relationship with God:

  1. Who He is.
  2. What He’s done for you.
  3. How much He loves you.
  4. All He has planned for you.

You will fall at His feet in your heart and this will draw you into wanting a close relationship With God. Our relationship with God is very supernatural. People who are not a Christian and even weak Christians can’t understand the whole concept of having an intimate relationship with a God you can’t see.

[Side note: When I talk about God I’m talking about the triune God including Jesus and the Holy Spirit]

Knowing God 8

Keep your mind on God.  Keep interacting with Him 24/7.rea

 

Do you realize that when you became a Christian, God came to live inside of you! How close is that??? We have a symbiotic relationship with God by way of the Holy Spirit. (Definition of symbiotic: The intimate living together of two dissimilar organisms. i.e. flesh and spirit) Sometimes it can be a mutually beneficial relationship. We have a great need of this relationship and it benefits us humans greatly. Sometimes in our obedience to God we can be a benefit to the Holy Spirit by speaking to people about Jesus.

It’s a strange thing when you ponder the fact that God is in us and we can interact with Him in such a unique way. It’s nothing to be afraid of! It’s something that all of us should pursue and want.

There are a few reasons why I love God so much and I have shared this before but I feel the need to share it again. The first reason is that God healed my mind from severe depression and saved me from several suicide attempts. I’m whole and I happy inside of my heart and mind….I have peace…I have hope…and I know the love of God…wow! The second reason is that I had a vision and experience where I was praying so hard and I was transported into a trancelike vision. I was going through this tunnel towards heaven and I felt the love of Jesus very powerfully. When I felt that I went faster toward the tiny drop of light the size of the tip of a needle. The love was a million times more powerful than any earthly love. Then all of a sudden water came rushing in the tunnel and I was back in my room and so upset because the kind of love I felt makes you not want to be here but to be where the most powerful love is. This is what’s in store for me when I get to heaven. When I think about my mom who is in heaven now is receiving this powerful love from God, I’m so happy for her and it makes me want to love God now as passionately as I can!

Why wait until you get to heaven to love God like crazy. Love Him like that now. I’m married, but I tell you…even if you’re single and a Christian…you have the greatest love in your life right now!!!!  Take time to enjoy the love of God.

These are the words to a song called “Real Love” written by Kirk Franklin that I sing with the deepest passion from my heart:

Knowing God 1

Jesus is REAL LOVE!!!

Real love

Look in my eyes and you will see
The way real love used to be
When the flowers bloomed in the spring time
And happiness was all mine
It’s hard to let my feelings show
But I’ve got to let somebody know
About the love that Jesus has given me
He loosed my shackles and set me free

Is this a dream or is it reality?
Have I finally found someone who loves me?
I just want to know

Have you ever loved somebodyj
Will you ever love somebody
The way that Jesus loves you

Over and over I ask myself
Could there ever be anyone else

Who can give me so much joy and peace
And make every day oh so sweet
I searched all over couldn’t find one
Til I met His only begotten Sonnail
At first I didn’t understand
Until I heard about the nail prints in His hands

Is this a dream or is it reality?
Have I finally found someone who loves me?
I just want to know
I just want to know
I just want to know

Can I ask you a question….Do you have an intimate relationship with God? Or is it a lukewarm relationship but you do go to church often and read the scripture once in a while and pray when there’s a need, a meal or crisis. I’m not trying to come down on anybody but the whole reason for this long blog today is to get others to crave knowing God like you need air to breath or food to eat. I pray for you to desire more of God with everything that is in you. This doesn’t benefit God…but it benefits you sooooo much! My daily life has been and is very difficult because of my many physical challenges and crisis’s. Life is difficult in general. Our country, this world and this planet are going through many critical changes that affects all of our lives. WE NEED GOD!!! We need to be closer to Him and more involved with Him.

Dear God…Please help those who want to draw closer to you to let their guard down and dive right into your presence. Draw them closer by the power of Holy Spirit. I ask in Jesus name…Amen.
