" CHRISTIANITY 101" THIS IS MY PRAYER OF HOPE TO THINK AND DO ALL IN LOVE! WHATSOEVER THINGS THAT ARE TRUE, HONEST, JUST, PURE, LOVELY, OF GOOD REPORT, IF THERE BE ANY VIRTUE, AND IF THERE BE ANY WAY TO GIVE PRAISE TO GOD, THESE ARE THE THINGS I TRY TO THINK ABOUT…BASED ON PHILLIPIANS 4:8 I CLAIM THIS BASED BY ALL OF GODS KING JAMES HOLY WORD, PRAYING MY THOUGHTS HONOR THE MIND OF CHRIST.
I think there is something in all of us, that longs for God. So we may begin to search for Him.
Or we may not, not if we are full of ourselves. If we think we can do without Him, if we actually judge God Himself, and think if there was a God, why is the world like it is?
(I think judging God is a disservice to one self, and God is not mocked. Personally I think that calls for repentance. Anyway….)
I have heard that and more, and to be honest, I actually said the same things years ago, in my youth, when I was head strong, and self-confident, and very prideful. Let me just touch base on that last thought, about pride. Because “pride” will stop you from searching for God. Pride will tell you there is no God. Pride will deceive you. God hates pride by the way.
THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS TO HATE EVIL: PRIDE, AND ARROGANCY, AND THE EVIL WAY, AND FORWARD MOUTH, DO I HATE. PROVERBS 8:13 King James.
BUT HE GIVETH MORE GRACE. WHEREFORE HE SAITH, GOD RESISTETH THE PROUD, BUT GIVETH GRACE UNTO THE HUMBLE. JAMES 4:6 King James.
EVERYONE THAT IS PROUD IN HEART IS AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD: THOUGH HAND JOIN IN HAND, HE SHALL NOT BE UNPUNISHED. PROVERBS 16:5 King James.
See, pride, is a characteristic of the enemy. And when we see anything that is not from God, well it always will be linked with the devil. He was prideful to begin with. He wanted the glory, and he wanted to steal that from God. He tried to lift himself up high, and yes he was thrown out of heaven. Folks, that’s what will happen to you as well if you take on his characteristics. Because they are not attributes, they are flaws in the spirit that will hurt you. To put it in a strange dynamic, the devil lost his salvation. Because he disobeyed God. In his pride. So if he can deny you, deceive you from searching for God, thats his goal. Don’t let him do that. Don’t lose your chances of being with God eternally, by denying Him now.
Search for God. See this is your Job. Not Gods job. He did His job on the cross for us. By sending His only begotten son to save us. You need a savior, and if you think you don’t you are being deceived. YOU ARE DENYING THE ONLY TRUE GOD, WHO REALLY CAN HELP YOU. And we all need help, I don’t care who you are. Strange, how he can use our misery, our suffering to search for Him, but He will. I guess in doing so during those times, it does make finding Him that much more real…..
I began searching for God, during the dark ages of my life. I call that as somewhat of a metaphor, but when I denied God in my youth, I paid a heavy price. Darkness. My soul was in darkness. Nothing made sense, I had no hope, I had no sense of right and wrong. My moral code was broken. I had a broken heart, and rightfully so, because my soul was broken. Because I denied the one true God. My Lord Jesus.
I just recommend finding Him before you get to the point of no return. That could be death, that could be, because you reject Him even as you read this.
It began to scare me, I think I was close to death, and if I had died, I know my soul would have gone to hell. No doubt.
I began analyzing and began searching within to see, why things were the way they were. See, I had grown up, knowing Christ as my Lord, and savior. I had known Him as a young child, I had found Him on a vacation Bible school bus, that would come into the neighborhoods in the summers, and I would get on that bus, and learn about Jesus. I was good at getting to know God, not trying to brag, but I would win ribbons for learning Bible verses, I would win King James bibles, I loved everything that I could learn about God, I was like a sponge, when it came to just desiring to know.
But something changed in my teenage years. I wanted to have fun. I began to be rebellious. I began to take my own choices, as right, and I fell. And I fell hard. I denied God. Thats why I call that my dark age….
But as I began searching for God again, I started really getting into the word of God. My King James bible. I started seeing my choices, were bad. I started seeing what God commanded us not to do, and what to do. I saw, that I had made many mistakes, that were considered sin in His eyes. I REPENTED.
And I still repent to this day, when I think of some of my sins. Or just my short comings in a day, where I may have sinned, not even realizing.
Yes, my sins are covered under the blood of Jesus. But if the devil can deceive any of us, he will tempt us with the things that we got delivered from. Thats why its so good to have fear of God, as we search for Him. Fear of God, will keep you out of spiritual trouble, because you will be aware of the consequences. And there are always consequences. My King James bible, says, the wages of sin is death. Thats a consequence.
FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; BUT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD. ROMANS 6:23 King James.
Whether its spiritual death, or even physical death, I don’t want to take chances by sinning. Knowing what I do in my heart of hearts. Knowing that Christ, suffered and died for my sins, and on that cross, He paid the penalty for my sins. That is a very deep sense of knowing how precious our salvation is, and so I never want to take it for granted. Some folks, don’t understand that, to be honest. They think grace covers it. But grace is not a license to sin.
We can all be hungry and thirsty for God, but if we are not searching for God, in His ways, we will miss it. Religion, will mislead you because its rules, regulations, traditions, rituals made by men and groups. But there is nothing like searching for God and finding Him. That my friend, is called relationship.
How did I find God? By continually searching for Him. By prayer, by repentance, by seeking Him in a Holy bible, not a corrupted bible. One that was changed, to find words that would give me interpretation. No, I found Him in His Holy King James word, that is His voice, that does not change. I am aware of the deception when words are changed. Because they change the meaning, and they are not Gods voice, and commandments. But folks disregard that, and think they know it all. Knowing what God thinks and commands is knowing God, see He just wants us to believe without the proof. He wants us to believe and begin this process of obeying so it will go well with us. He does it differently than what we would want. Or expect.
AND I GAVE MY HEART TO SEEK OUT BY WISDOM CONCERNING ALL THINGS THAT ARE DONE UNDER HEAVEN: THIS SORE TRAVAIL HATH GOD GIVEN TO THE SONS OF MAN TO BE EXCERISED THEREWITH. Ecclesiastes 1:13 King James.
And I start this process over and over daily. I search for Him daily. By these things I mention from above.
Every day, I start all over, and I am just grateful. I worship Him, in spirit and in truth. Cause he knows if its truth or not.
GOD IS A SPIRIT: AND THEY THAT WORSHIP HIM MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH. John 4:24 King James.
Life is hard, no doubt, but without Him, it would be impossible to me. I would not have made it this far. Oh He tests me, and sometimes, I fail Him, I am sure. But it has taught me to be careful. Careful how you judge others. Be careful that you don’t let that pride in again…. that I am better than you. That, I have to judge you. See, that scares me now, because I know we all sin, and come short of His glory. I am careful with hate, and greed, and vanity, jealousy, wanting something or someone that does not belong to me.
I learned the hard way, to trust Him.
I learned, that by sitting at His feet, is the best entertainment I can have, because I am being taught by the creator of heaven and earth. You want a witty idea? Sit at His feet. But always be careful, with your motives for searching for Him. Because He is not an ATM.
He has feelings, believe me….
You know God does hide, I will just say that. He can be very silent. When He is silent, I ask myself is there some sin, because He does say, He will not answer if sin is there. Read Psalms 66:18 King James. Thats your assignment to read. So you can remember.
But you can find Him, in this relationship in everything. Because HE is the creator of heaven and earth. To deny God, is just dumb to me. Because once you meet with Him, once you find Him, and truly find him, you never want to ever go back to not believing. That is so counter productive to me.
Not after knowing what I have known. Not going through what I have gone through. Yes, I hold onto God, because I found Him, but really He found me. For I was lost, but now I am found. And I give Him glory thanks, honor and praise…
DRAW NIGH TO GOD, AND HE WILL DRAW NIGH TO YOU. CLEANSE YOUR HANDS, YE SINNERS, AND PURIFY YOUR HEARTS, YE DOUBLE MINDED. JAMES 4:8 King James.
See, folks, as I conclude, I want you to know you can find God. You just have to search for Him. He will reveal Himself.
AND YE SHALL SEEK ME, AND FIND ME, WHEN YE SHALL SEARCH FOR ME, WHEN YE SHALL SERACH FOR ME WITH ALL YOUR HEART. Jeremiah 29:13 King James.
He is so good to me. I just adore Him, I love Him, I am so grateful to Him, and I don’t just say it, to say it. Or flippantly, and I don’t care who likes it or not, or if they judge that. I know God. I know a lot of what He likes, and dislikes. What gets Him mad. What is right in His sight, how he hates wickedness.
Friends, its a relationship. That I have, and I have always had it, but sometimes, we can miss it. Don’t miss it. Search for Him.
Blessings and love,
LET US DRAW NEAR WITH A TRUE HEART IN FULL ASSURANCE OF FAITH, HAVING OUR HEARTS SPRINKLED FROM AN EVIL CONSCIENCE, AND OUR BODIES WASHED WITH PURE WATER. HEBREWS 10:22 King James.
This message has been on my heart for a few days now. I really did not want to write about this, for a moment there. I just thought that’s in the past, and I really need to let go. But I feel the prompting from the Holy Spirit. So I will obey. Perhaps, there is someone who really needs to see this to identify the counterfeits in life. How they can come, how one can be deceived by them, how they can actually take you off of the path, or plan God has for you.
So tell me if this blesses you in the comment section….
Jeremiah 29:11 King James tells us, God knows the thoughts He has for us, not the plans. Many other Bible versions says; plans.
FOR I KNOW THE THOUGHTS THAT I THINK TOWARD YOU, SAITH THE LORD, THOUGHTS OF PEACE, AND NOT OF EVIL TO GIVE YOU AN EXPECTED END. Jeremiah 29:11 KJV.
I really want to know what God thinks so I can learn from that. Plans are nice, but if I am blowing it, making mistakes allowing counterfeits, I want to know what HIS thoughts are. So when we meditate, consider, and rely on Gods thoughts, according to His King James word. By the Holy Spirit, we can learn to begin to discern, between good and evil. Right and wrong, and counterfeits. Those phony people, or situations, that really can come from hell to distract you, to deceive you, to get you off track, from what God really wants for you. Will be allowed if you don’t consider Gods thoughts on these spiritual matters that will affect your life.
Again this is why I use a King James, I don’t want a counterfeit Bible. Those that know me, know I write this often. Because it is so important, to really knowing God, and His thoughts… I have learned and do see the difference.
Anyway, I guess, I can write about counterfeits, because there have been many counterfeits in my life. When I say this, it could mean people, that are phony. People that are not good for you, people that the enemy will use to hurt you. People with an agenda, and with motives that are not healthy or good, because they don’t know God. And you might not even think they are counterfeits, because you love them. Love can be a strong hold. The wrong kind of love, can put you in bondage. Deceive you.
But I have learned, if love is not based on God, or who He is, what He commands, etc. It can end up being disastrous. It can end up hurting you. Counterfeits.
This is why I have learned, even when it comes to love, I decided years, ago, I wanted a holy love. I wanted a love that would honor God. So I made the commitment, that if God brought me the right mate, I would wait till marriage. He did, He brought me a wonderful man, we waited till marriage, to enjoy each other, and have been married for over 33 years. We have a foundation in that holiness that has kept us together I believe. My husband is not a counterfeit. But believe me, counterfeits, did try and come and interrupt that plan, but I thank God neither one of us fell for the counterfeit.
Anyway, thats just one example of counterfeit situations, that has taught me about seeking God in matters like this, but I have had a lot of counterfeit friends, situations, where I did miss it, because of who they were, and because their agenda, or their motivations, truly did not line up with Christ, in even matters concerning loyalty.
See, I have learned, with myself, and others, if folks, cannot be loyal to God, they won’t be loyal to you. If jealousy is there, that is a counterfeit. Just look at how God kicked the devil out of heaven, because of his jealousy to God.
And I could go into specifics, but sadly at the end of some of these situations, the fruit revealed itself, and it was not based on God. Because love, was not there in even forgiving. Or extending grace. To me, yet I gave it to them.
I want to just implore you to pray about the counterfeits in your own life. I pray myself, especially because recently I have asked my Lord, for God to keep counterfeits away from me. I don’t want to waste my time, on people, or situations, that will distract me from truly meeting my potential or plans God could have for me, because my thoughts, do not align with God. In these matters. Jeremiah 29:11 again. I guess, I am older now, wiser, but I don’t want distractions. Or counterfeits.
“Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” 2 John 1:9-11 KJV
I wanted to give you King James scriptures that attest to the word counterfeits, but that word is not in my King James. But “righteousness” in Christ, reminds us, that this is the goal. To get away from counterfeits. To change ourselves.
FOR THE WRATH OF MAN WORKETH NOT THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD. JAMES 1:20 KJV
See, holiness, can only be obtained by righteousness. We must always have that mind set, to seek things above, so the fruit of who we are, will not be rotten, not deceived. GO FOR HOLINESS.
IF YE THEN BE RISEN WITH CHRIST, SEEK THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE ABOVE, WHERE CHRIST SITTETH ON THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD. COLOSSIANS 3:1 KJV.
The fear of God, has taught me first and foremost to obey God, to seek Him, to be humble, mindful. We cannot allow darkness into our lives, in any shape or form, or really it will bring in counterfeits. Disobeying God, will bring counterfeits. Let me repeat this…. Disobeying God will bring counterfeits.
THERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD BEFORE THEIR EYES. ROMANS 3:18 KJV.
In other words, I try and give God glory as much as possible.
Why? For lots of reasons. One because HE has been so merciful to me, in so many ways. And as I write this, I feel the tears well up in my eyes, and my heart knows this as true.
I am not trying to put myself down, or deny my beginnings, or my journey, but sometimes, it has not been easy. I actually feel like the devil has stolen a lot from me. In my lifetime. From my family, from my successes, from my education, and even from my own self-esteem. And so even here, I bind the enemy, I plead the blood of Jesus, as my hedge of protection. Thank you Lord, for giving me that authority by what you did on the cross.
I see how the enemy had hurt my mother, and how she was so broken, and defeated. I saw how the enemy misguided me growing up. I was so lost….and I could go into more detail.
I have seen the enemy destroy lives, because they had not made God the priority. So I just know…..I have learned from others mistakes as well, by not doing that.
But the point is, God has always been there for me. I just had to search for Him. I did, He changed my life, and the road I was on, which was headed straight for hell.
But because I have seen how the devil has stolen so much from me, I also see how he tried to steal the glory from God. How he tried to puff himself up, and make himself higher than God, in heaven. I see how he wanted to be glorified not God.
He was jealous of God. Thats why when I see this in anybody, I will depart from them. God saw this, and kicked him out of heaven. For God will not share His glory with anyone.
But even on earth, I see how the devil tries to steal the glory from God. He puts hate, and disbelief in others hearts, so they will deny God. So they will not see His mercy and goodness. And because God is a gentleman, HE never tries to impose Himself on anyone. He gives us a choice. Many do not choose Him, because the devil has stolen that glory. By deceiving, by lying, by stealing… All God really wants is our obedience, and that we believe. That pleases Him.
BUT WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM, FOR HE THAT COMETH TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM. HEBREWS 11:6 KING JAMES.
I am not a wealthy woman, but I am very blessed, in so many ways. That I just see, as I thank God. And give Him glory, nothing is missing in my life. He provides. He brought me a family, that I did not have growing up.
He brings a calm and peace, that sometimes, I wonder how I deal with things, when sometimes it is hard.
But HE never leaves or forsakes me. But I do my job, in as much as possible, I proclaim who He is to me. Those that know me, know He is always in my conversations, He is always included. I cannot help but see who He is, and I just know when I had denied Him, in my youth, those were the darkest days of my life. Where I made the worse decisions of my life. Because the light, of who HE is was missing.
So as a writer, I include Him in everything. King James scripture says:
TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART: AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING. IN ALL THY WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM, AND HE SHALL DIRECT THY PATHS. BE NOT WISE IN THINE OWN EYES: FEAR THE LORD, AND DEPART FROM EVIL. PROVERBS 3:5-7. KJV.
I have had to learn to trust God. I have had to dismiss my own feelings, and understanding, because I see my poor judgment in the past. And yes, I do acknowledge Him, so He will direct my way, and path. I pray, I am not prideful thinking I am some know it all, because I am not.
And yes, I fear God. I hear people say, “oh you don’t have to be afraid of God.” But I am. I fear Him, not only because His King James word says that throughout His word….(Does your corrupt bible say that?….)
But I FEAR GOD because I never want to mock Him, or have his love and beauty, His majesty depart, so that I would open a door to evil. When I need Him, I go to Him, and I need Him always. Thats who I am. Maybe some folks, have not gone through suffering, or sadness or poverty, or felt like an outcast. But I have, and I am o.k with it. Because through it all, I have God.
So I advertise that freely. I don’t expect Him to pay for that. HE already paid for it on the cross. For my sins, and yours. Even if He does not answer a prayer, in a way I want. I don’t hold it against Him. His will be done….
I don’t do it, to get things from God. I don’t embrace the “prosperity” message for that very reason. Because I have learned to seek His face, not His hand. How insulting that must be to Him.
But today I saw a commercial, just in passing, and they advertised God. I thought it was awesome. They inspired me, even how we need to love and not hate. I know that business will do well. But I pray, they do it just to give God glory. Because HE does deserve it.
For all He is and all He does, I will always advertise for God, freely and give Him glory.
I know His voice from my King James Bible. Its holy, its not corrupted, and the devil cannot speak to my heart. Because I am obedient to search for God there. There is no confusion, and I see God and His truth. I cannot help but advertise for God.
Lord, be glorified, in all I do. I thank you. For everything, as I have, you have taught me, if I have you, I do have everything. How great you are dear Lord. All Praise and glory only belongs to you. And my heart knows this. In Jesus name. Amen.
I have learned the hard way, if you have a secret, don’t share it. Because some folks, will and can use it against you. I learned this when I was younger, and I was more of an open book. Because I would say something in passing, and yep when they had a chance, they threw it in my face.
This is a spirit, and it does not come from God. Love covers a multitude of sins…..
THE WORDS OF A TALEBEARER ARE AS WOUNDS, AND THEY GO DOWN INTO THE INNERMOST PARTS OF THE BELLY. PROVERBS 18:8 King James.
So, I have learned, not to always share, or indulge in plans, hopes, dreams either. For that same reason. “Loose lips, sink ships.”
Its hard to do, yes, because sometimes, we need counsel, or sometimes, we need to vent. We want to trust others. But the hard part for me anyway, was having someone I loved or trusted throw something back in my face, or made me to feel inadequate for what I had gone through, and shared, as a secret.
Now I have been told things, that folks, have regarded as a secret. And I can honestly say, because I learned what I had, not to say anything, about any of it to anyone. I try to be a good friend even if we are no longer friends. See, we all sin, we all come short of Gods glory. I haven’t walked in your shoes, and you have not walked in mine. Thats Gods job to judge. Not mine.
So, I am careful, in this regard. There are so many scriptures that attest to this. And I am listing a couple here. But there is something wrong, I think, spiritually, when people, need to make themselves relevant, by disclosing someone else and their pain and hurt to others. Is it pride? Is it puffing oneself up?
To say; “I know something you don’t know…“
HE THAT GOETH ABOUT AS A TALEBEARER REVEALETH SECRETS: THEREFORE MEDDLE NOT WITH HIM THT FLATTERETH. PROVERBS 20:19 King James.
If they can say something about someone you know. What do they say about you?
I don’t know, but it is an ugly spirit. And I do avoid folks for this reason. See, I have had friendships where I trusted someone, and when they got mad or frustrated with me, they mocked me. So I keep to myself in many ways for that reason. Christ is my greatest friend, and His truth, has set me free. He does not throw it back in my face. See thats condemnation, and there is no condemnation with Christ. Yes, God will convict you, that corrects you, but condemnation, comes straight from hell and the devil will mock you with that spirit, and try to condemn you. Read Romans 8:1 King James.
This is why daily repentance to me, keeps the slate clean. Helps me to see my own faults, without having to express them to others, who could hurt me. Because God loves me, but He does not let me walk around with a prideful spirit, that wants to hurt others. Boy he pricks my heart, in more ways then I can say. But I am so glad, that I take things to Him.
I don’t want anyone to confuse this with truth, as well, because there is a balance, in what we should say in truth. But to take someones truth, reveal it to others, to hurt them is ugly. There are secrets one might see, and yes you may need to speak up, because it could hurt others.
And you might need to stop that. Thats using righteous judgment. But I am telling you pray about it. First. Before you reveal something. Nobody likes a snitch. Nobody. And if you are revealing something just to do it, that might just prove you have the bigger problem.
WHERE NO WOOD IS, THERE THE FIRE GOETH OUT: SO WHERE THERE IS NO TALEBEARER, THE STRIFE CEASETH. PROVERBS 26:20 King James.
Oh and as a final thought, when you reveal secrets, that could put you in a category of being an accuser. God hates that. I hope you take a moment after reading this, and read Revelation 12:10 from a King James. Because it talks about those who “accuse” others in the sight of God. And well there’s a place in hell for those that do.
In 2021 As Christians, Identify With Christ Not the Devil.
What do I mean by that? My goodness, I have seen so many Christians who claim they are Christians, acting like the devil in 2020.
So change that!
When it comes to fruit. What does God see? Does He see you acting like the world? Hating others? Hating our President. Accusing?
You know you don’t want to be counted with those headed for hell. I am just saying…What God is saying!
“And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelation 12:8-11 KJV
Be reminded, God kicked angels out of heaven. So if you act like the devil, and identify with him. Guess what? You could lose your place in heaven. Open doors to the enemy, and so much more.
Last week, a person, I challenged, mocked me as a Christian, had the nerve, to say I was a heretic, but did not love. Just like a Pharisee.
The fruit, and may I remind you, the fruit of the spirit is not hate. Yet this person, was accusatory, and hateful. The name of the enemy flowed off this persons thoughts, with great ease. Instead of lifting up the name of Jesus.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23 KJV
So I rebuked this person in the name of Jesus. The spirit was ugly. I pulled out my sword of truth.
It was ironic, that this person, thought they were going to use word against me, in this twisted situation.
The person told me; Get thee behind me satan. Hmmmm….
When that person told me that, the Lord spoke to my heart. By the Holy Spirit. Your heritage is of ME, and my Righteousness. Speak up! You have authority to rise up against those that judge you…..
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” Isaiah 54:17 KJV
It came to me, to tell this person truth, and this is what I said…As I rebuked her in the name of Jesus:
When you say get thee, behind me ——- you are telling the devil to be your back up. Not God…
Because when you hate, when you do not love, when you accuse… You are calling on the spirit of the enemy. That is not of God. God is love. I pray you open your eyes, and see, because the enemy has deceived you. You don’t see it, but its evil. I pray the Holy Spirit opens your eyes, to be of Christ.
That day, I knew I had my armor of God on. It amazed me that I had clarity, understanding, to know this person was using word, twisted. Because the spirit was not right, not love. I had discernment. That person stopped, because I spoke truth that convicted…
But I see it often, Christians being used by the enemy. Being deceived. Hating, accusing, judging, being mean spirited. Some even promoting sin.
How can we ask God to bless us brothers and sisters, if the fruit identifies with the devil instead of Christ?
I guess, I have been around a while learned a lot, by Christ, but it has taught me to be humble, for I have blown it….
But there is so much pride, in the body of Christ. I see high profile folks, who say they are Christians, but they are condemning others. Especially now, when we need to have truth, and honesty, more than anything we need unity. Accusing, another Christians, disgusts me. To be honest. It looks bad. Just saying…
So much, about me, me, me….and not enough of who He is.
In 2021 I more than ever want to identify with Christ. With truth. With love.
With courage, even if I am standing alone, I want to be known for who HE is in me.
But I cannot do that if I am back biting, hating, and not being truthful in His truth.
I just pray, that we would wake up. 2021 should bring us all to our knees, to be humble. To be repentant. To seek God more. To find the balance, in the word.
To be searching for God, and for others, to be a light that shines for Christ.
But I do not want to be a clanging noise.
I take to heart, what John 13:35 King James says.
“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 13:34-35 KJV
Folks, lets get closer to God. Life does not promise us anything, but God does.
We have our part. Lets identify with Christ, put off the old person, and let Christ show us, HE is the way, the truth and life. John 14:6. King James.
I want miracles in my life. For 2021. But I want God to get the glory. How can God get the glory if our fruit brings rottenness by the enemy?
WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM. MATTHEW 21:34 King James.
You do not know me. But I feel led to write to you. I am a Christian. A writer. I try to be a humble hand maiden, and servant of my Lord. An ambassador of Christ.
I don’t have nor do I want the opportunities you have. Its been a journey for me, my walk with Christ. And He has taught me so much. So I have learned to be content. I have learned love, because He came and saved me, when I was lost and broken. He loved me, when no one else did, when I was rejected. I know, that I know there is a God.
And I fear God, that is the healthiest thing I have learned. In my walk with Christ. Because I know there are consequences to sin, and I have repented. But I have also lost much. Yet I have gained so much with God. I know who I am in Christ. In my own gifts and callings. I don’t struggle with my faith. I just seek Him. Daily. I am no longer desperate. But I am desperate for Jesus. I take my relationship with Him seriously, and never want to abuse what HE did on that cross.
I am just a sinner saved by grace. I am just someone, God had mercy on. I am just someone who wants to serve Him quietly and with love. I have written three books. Doors did not fling open for me. That was not Gods thoughts for me. I accept that.
But because I am saved, I am reminded. We all sin, and come short of Gods glory. So who am I to judge our President? When I know the blood of Christ covers my sins?
So I do not have the fame, the notoriety. The opportunities to be on television. Like you have had. But I do recognize the influence you have, in this that God has given you.
I want to speak this in love. But it may be harsh. Truth is sometimes harsh. We all have power of life and death in our tongues, so I want to be careful to speak love and life.
I want to be able to reason with you, from one Christian to another. I don’t see that, to be honest, in our world of social media. Or in my own experiences. Which is very sad.
Where Christians can share with one another, and without it turning into a battle. A spiritual battle that the enemy takes joy in, when he sees, we are at odds with one another.
When we don’t obey God, and walk in love. Where we are careful, not to judge. With a spirit, that is not of Christ. Yet, Christ does tell us to have righteous judgement. My King James bible, tells me this.
This may sound like judging. But I want you to see that I am warning you in Christ. To me, I see you are deceived. To be honest. I see the enemy using you. I see disobedience. And I do not see love. Ezekiel 33 King James, tells us to warn. Even the righteous. Even those who think they are holier than thou.
OPEN THY MOUTH, JUDGE RIGHTEOUSLY, AND PLEAD THE CAUSE OF THE POOR AND NEEDY. Proverbs 31:9 King James.
The body of Christ confuses judging with warning, and because of that, we do not grow, we are not united. And truth, Gods truth is missing. The law of who He is.
Maybe if I bring this to your attention, because of who you are, you can help unite the body of Christ. Maybe it will unite Christians. Because God has blessed you.
But I also want you to be aware, that your stance against our President, does not bring love. It brings division.
I have seen your comments now and then on social media, that have disturbed me. Concerning, our President, Donald J. Trump.
And it bothered me in the sense, because when I see comments like yours, you get on the band wagon of hate. You act like the world. The world or those who are not in Christ, hate him.
I guess it bothers me, because at this time, more than ever. We do not need hate. We need truth. We need answers. We need to walk in love. Not only as Christians but as Americans. We need our spiritual Christian leaders to have true courage, because our nation is at stake.
Your last comment, compared Trump to idolatry. And I will give you credit here, to state, that yes, God gets all the glory. He should. He is our Lord, and savior. He is the creator of heaven and earth. Maybe people do idolize our President, and it may look like idolatry, to you.
But because I know who I am in Christ. And first and foremost, I give God glory, I see a twisted message, in what you speak. Because it is not love. It is judging. Christ told us, that we would be known for love. I see a Pharisee message. And to be honest, I see what they did to Christ, and your words are doing the same thing!
I read the following, from one of your followers and I am quoting it, because it bothered me, that this person felt this way, but I did respond there….Maybe you saw this, maybe you did not.
I myself, last night woke up, in the middle of the night and pondered on that. Because you are dividing us, with hate. Just like the haters. Instead of being a good influence, a role model, you promote hate. Toward the leader of our country. And so I prayed. And felt the prompting from God to write this letter.
Person: Thank you for saying this truth! I have been baffled by the support that Trump managed to receive from Christians. His behavior in no way represents Christian values.
Me: Well, read John 13:35 King James. Christ said we would be known by love. This is not love. This is the biggest Pharisee spirit I have seen since Christ was crucified. It’s not difficult to see love or hate, but if you support hate, you judge as well with the accusers. Wake up.
You don’t see the damage, you are doing, but what bothers me, is that you do not see the good our President has done. I also saw a comment on your wall from someone else, that compared our President to the anti-Christ.
And that bothered me as well. Trump has done more for religious freedom, then any other President. He supports Israel. He supports blacks and latinos. He has done more for minorities than any other President. He protects our borders. He speaks for the unborn. You should rejoice that he wants to spare the lives of the innocent. And stop the shedding of innocent blood. He has done so much. But most of his past four years, in office, was spent battling. Because of the hate. So I am sure, he could have done a lot more. Have you ever seen his accomplishments? I recommend you do, go to the White House page on the internet, and see his accomplishments.
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; For there is one God, and one mediator, between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.”1 Timothy 2:1-6 KJV
Yet, by your comments of disdain toward him, you are promoting hate to our President. That is not Christ like. You are not telling folks, to pray for him. For God to help him. You are coming against him, like an enemy. And when I see that, I see an enemy of our country, as well. Which is sad, Beth. And you do not see it. The devil has deceived you. You have freedom of speech, but sometimes we should not use freedom of speech to promote, sedition, or anarchy, that could lead to treason.
You are in your early sixties. Well I am a few years older, and I have seen Presidents come and go. The man is not perfect. He is a little rough around the edges. But who is perfect? Our Lord Jesus.
SAYING, TOUCH NOT MINE ANOINTED, AND DO MY PROPHETS NO HARM. I Chronicles 16:22 King James.
When you attack him, with your words, you are touching Gods anointed. You are being used by the devil himself. You are bringing hate and division to our country. And Christians, are following your lead, because you are a leader. This is terrible. So then the blind, lead the blind. That is also King James scriptural.
I have never followed you. Nor bought your books. I could see from the beginning, that you did not use a King James bible. So to me, I will not support ministries that disobey God, when it comes to word.
See, word, God’s word, is holy. Its intended, to bring truth, light, guidance, but when they corrupt scripture, that you use, you are not being obedient to God. According to Deuteronomy 4:2, Proverbs 30:5-6, and Revelation 22:18-19 King James. I could write them out for you, but I think you need to search God Himself, and look these up yourself. And I will not debate this with you or anyone. I choose to be obedient to God.
So no, I have not been a fan, nor followed you. I have strayed away from flaky Christian messages, that do not teach love, or obedience to God. Or repentance. The body of Christ so needs to learn this. Even daily for again, we all sin, and come short of our Lords glory. I have strayed away from prosperity messengers. And I do not know if you do this because again, I have not followed you, for the very reason I stated. You do not obey God, when it comes to word.
But God has placed Trump in office, for such a time as this. He has been so persecuted, hated, insulted, undermined. And now, his office, is being stripped away, right in front of Americas eyes, because this situation with the voting is fraudulent. America wants him in office. Evil does not. That is a sin. And your timing….Wow.
How dare you, or anybody else, take away the right from WE THE PEOPLE. By promoting hate.
It does not mean we don’t love God. It does not mean we are a cult. It means we are Americans, and we take to heart, our God given rights, to vote. Your timing, at this point, grieved me, because the man is trying to bring light, for justice. This election was stolen from him.
And when I saw your comment, just recently, I felt I could no longer be silent. You are going about this in a wrong way. And it is not love. How many times do I have to write that? You say you love Jesus? Well Jesus told us we would be known by love. That is how the world will know we are truly HIS DISCIPLES. But it takes discipline.
I want to bring these three scriptures to close this open letter to you. This is my sword of truth, and I am not holding back. And I pray, God does use me, and you see the error of what you have done, and I pray you repent. To our Lord.
I actually pray you publically apologize to our President, and to Americans. And to your brothers and sisters in Christ. And that you see, how wrong it is for a Christian to come against her own nation, and Gods plan. WE ARE ONE NATION UNDER GOD!
I believe right now with what is happening, that the battle is the Lords. And God never loses. I see that, because God knows. I believe Trump will be appointed for four more years. And will be fulfilled in that calling, God has placed on him.
RIGHTEOUSNESS EXALTETH A NATION: BUT SIN IS A REPROACH TO ANY PEOPLE.
Proverbs 14:34 King James.
AND THE GREAT DRAGON WAS CAST OUT, THAT OLD SERPENT, CALLED THE DEVIL AND SATAN, WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD: HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH, AND HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM. AND I HEARD A LOUD VOICE SAYING IN HEAVEN, NOW IS COME SALVATION, AND STRENGTH, AND THE KINGDOM OF OUR GOD, AND THE POWER OF HIS CHRIST: FOR THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHREN IS CAST DOWN, WHICH ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT. AND THEY OVERCAME HIM BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB, AND BY THE WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY; AND THEY LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH. Revelation 12:-9-11 KING JAMES.
A NEW COMMANDMENT I GIVE UNTO YOU, THAT YE LOVE ONE ANOTHER, AS I HAVE LOVED YOU, THAT YE ALSO LOVE ONE ANOTHER. BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER. John 13:35 King James.
In Christ, and His love,
Please Note: After two days, of no response from her, and a couple of battles with other Christians over this, that’s if you want to call them Christians. All I know is that even angels got kicked out of heaven. I am not going to pursue this further, unless God prompts me. But I am sad, to see a Christian leader, take a stance like she has. Its in Gods hands. I have tried, to communicate. To warn, like Ezekiel 33 tells us. Its sad, how ugly this all is. Just in America. I never thought, I would be pleading with a Christian leader, to do the right thing.
I wrote the following to her:
“Arise; for this matter belongeth unto thee: we also will be with thee: be of good courage, and do it.”
Ezra 10:4 KJV
Repent. Apologize to the @POTUS to America & to your brothers and sisters in Christ.
Don’t let PRIDE which you know God hates send you to hell.
That’s so awesome to ponder on. That God loves me. This is why I give God glory. I serve Him With WORKS. Some don’t even know how wrong they are when they undermine HIS LAW OR WORKS, But I KNOW THERE IS A GOD!
So I serve Him, with works, that gives me faith, and I take his Law to heart…So I will stay out of trouble, spiritually.
There is a difference between Gods law and Moses, but they don’t see it. The only law we are free from is the law of sin and death. Not Gods commandments.
EVEN SO FAITH, IF IT HATH NOT WORKS, IS DEAD BEING ALONE. JAMES 2:17 King James.
ROMANS 8:2 FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH. ROMANS 8:2. King James.
BLESSED ARE THE UNDEFILED IN THE WAY, WHO WALK IN THE LAW OF THE LORD. PSALM 119:1 King James.
If someone feels led to debate this, I will not, so if you unfriend me, that’s o.k. I still love you in Christ.
The battle is the Lord’s, I will just say that up front. For His glory, for the victory. Trumps battle for the soul of the nation, should be Americas battle as well.
We should be united. But we are not.
Throughout this man’s presidency, I have seen a man who has fought for America. He actually surprised me. I am older now, and I always saw him in the lime light. He was always controversial. Always exposed, and when I say that I mean just in the sense, that people would look at him. They saw his life, his successes, his great wealth, and they saw his family. His marriages and divorces. Many also saw his sins. And they judged him.
In these four years, I saw a man who kept his promises. I saw a man, who protected our borders. They called him a racist, a white supremacist. I did not see that. How many times did he have to renounce that? But they still called him that.
In fact, quite to the contrary, he has done more for Hispanics, and Blacks, then any other President. I did see a man who could be rough around the edges, not always tactful. But the man is smart. No one can deny that. His business sense, his understanding of how to do business, tariffs, etc. Benefited this country, in many great ways.
But when he became our President, I began to pray for him. We are commanded to pray for our leaders, because this pleases God. I did. And will always pray for him.
“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” 1 Timothy 2:1-5 KJV
Now I don’t mean anybody any disrespect when I say this, but he has been the best President, I have seen in my life time. As I said, I am older. I have seen a few come and go. I have seen some who just sat there, and did not do half of the things he does.
Nor did they love this country as much as he does. Go figure, the man did not even take a salary from us. He served us. That is love, that’s patriotism, for America. He loves our military. He rebuilt our nation’s military. We are the strongest we have ever been. Economically as well.
He looked out for us, and dismissed a global agenda. He took care of us…Yes even during this pandemic. Which many would dispute, but he stopped traveling, across the world here, to protect us, and other things he has done. He implemented the plan, and did not just talk about having a plan. Vaccinations are on their way, and for the elderly.
He is a man for law and order. Wow, it is so needed right now.
But if we reject Gods law, how do we expect to maintain the law of the land?
“But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.” John 7:49 KJV
There is no standard, when we reject God. We cannot be blessed unless we know who God is and His laws. I recommend a King James bible. Because it is still holy, not changed or corrupted.
Anyway, I saw a man who did more for Israel. For Christians. I saw a man who now and then gave glory to God. I loved seeing my Lord get glory from him, when he spoke at his rallies.
And what rallies they were. People also saw his good, as I did. We saw the love he had for us. We saw the good in him. And one could not help and compare between his rival the difference.
Now I am not going to bash Biden. But people did not flock to his rallies. Like they did Trump. The man is a doom and gloom speaker, when he speaks, he race baits. He divided us. He catered, and pandered to the illegal. Why wasn’t he promoting our laws in immigration? That affects our tax dollars, when he promises free health care.
I did not see the sharp wit, that Trump has.
Why did the media give Biden a free pass? I have to interject here, I am so disappointed in the media. I am so disappointed, in the many Americans who treated Trump so shabbily. They accused him of so many terrible atrocities, slandered him, mocked him. Even denied him his freedom of speech, on occasion. Even in how the reporting of this election went. And they won’t report the voter fraud. In fact, right now, they are claiming Biden won it.
When the results came in at first, Trump challenged it. A high profile journalist, stopped his comments, and said that they could not let him speak on air, because they were not verifiable. Which was terrible. This is the President of the United States, and this rude man, denied him freedom of speech? It infuriates me. Because really he became a judge and jury. These things need to be proven in a court of law. Yet, he did not even let Trump have his say. For the public to know. Trump has been so challenged. I don’t know how he does it, but he keeps on….
Yet, Biden, has been treated with kids gloves. Pampered, babied, never asked the tough challenging questions, that would bring light or insight. Even with recent allegations about his dealings with other countries. No the media did a disservice to America. It is so obvious.
No, I don’t believe Biden won this election. I don’t see it. All I see is the voter fraud. I see how votes, were brought in after the polls were closed. I saw ballots were found in trash cans. I see reports, on how some folks paid cash for ballots. There are even videos of folks filling out the ballots.
To me, they should just go and revote. I would any way. Clean the slate. But I suppose they do need to find out where and how this fraudulent behavior stems from, and folks, should be persecuted. I believe there will be lawsuits.
But you cannot deny Trump his freedom to ask, and to challenge all of this.
So I don’t see how this could now be. And I will never believe it was done fair and square, not after the way so many has treated Trump. How did Biden win the Presidency? It was not a battle it was a theft!
Biden had his chances in the senate, and he had his chances when he was Vice President, and well, to say the least, he did not serve Americans well. Many of us remember and did not drink the Kook-aid. But when he and Obama were in office, I still respected that administration…
With that said….
I am just saddened to see the results of this election, to take the turn it has. In America. I am sad to see the difference. People did not flock to his rallies. Like they did Trump. So I don’t see how this could now be. How the numbers could add up like they do. In his favor.
As I have observed, like any other American from social media, we are seeing fraudulence. We are seeing the denial. The lack of accountability. That they fight for. In the most egregious form, I have ever seen. Which is now voter fraud.
I have seen some who called themselves friends with Trump when it benefited them, but now they are either silent, or getting on television and saying he needs to prove this voter fraud. Or shut up.
When I read haters comments, and I read how they deny this fraud, it alarms me. For them, as well. It alarms my soul. It alarms who I am in Christ. For Christ is the way, the truth, and life.
It alarms me, because America is better than that. From the beginning….
When our forefathers, fought for America, to be free. They implemented our Constitution, our Bill of Rights. They set the pattern. They set the way to follow after the old ways…
But even as God says, follow the old path, but we don’t see that, any more. And this is where we have gone wrong as a nation. Where we go wrong individually.
“Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.” Jeremiah 6:16 KJV
I actually see many of us as Americans departing from Gods truth. Look at abortion. You can argue about it, as it being a right for a woman, but in Gods eyes its seen to Him, as sin.
“Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,” Psalms 106:37 KJV
Right now….We don’t see in America, integrity, honesty, good will toward all. We don’t see this, because we have allowed the devil. Oh not all of us, but there are some, who are in high places, who do not serve God or America. And so they do serve the enemy.
Lets just be honest…
When the campaign began, and Biden picked his running mate, we saw their slogan, their motto.
They called it: “BATTLE FOR THE SOUL OF THE NATION.”
Those words always struck an odd chord in my soul. Because we are ONE NATION UNDER GOD. And, IN GOD WE TRUST.
So, every time, I saw it, I thought, America belongs to God. Why are they fighting for the soul of the nation? In battle? Hmmmm. And then I would be reminded, that the battle is Gods. That gave me peace, still does.
No matter, what God allows. He is on the throne. But God is not mocked, Galatians 6:7 King James (look it up) and I know that I know that about God. He does not share His glory with anybody. We belong to God, this nation. But are we allowing our country to be stolen? Are we giving who we are as a nation away?
God is a gentleman, He always has given us a choice, since the beginning. I know from my own experiences, when I walked in the ways of the world, the Lord let me. But when I saw the error of my ways, I ran back to His throne, and I have not left. It is not worth it. But I reaped what I sowed. I paid for it in my own lifetime.
I see, what the devil has stolen from me, because of my bad choices. My sins. I may never recover from some of these losses, because they are great to me. But when I see this, for our country. It does anger me, it frustrates me, as I am sure it does Trump and yes other Americans. But I will tell you the truth. I am not in despair. Because I know who God is, and this can change. Do not doubt Gods power. That’s why I do have faith. Folks, have not walked in my shoes, they can deny Him, mock Him, but I know what God has done for me.
In fact, today, I am reminded of my Father. It’s the anniversary of his death. But that man my dear father, prayed for me to be born and conceived, because my mother was not able to have children. Long story short, this is my testimony. PRAYER WORKS. This is why I am reminding other Christians to pray, for this to be rectified. This is our nation folks.
I know the difference. Between love and hate. I never, try to let hate consume me, because it is the opposite of love, and because God is love.
Hate poisons the soul. And I have seen many Americans, even Americans who I have admired, hate. They are consumed with their hate for Trump. Trump Derangement Syndrome is very real. And that hate will even cause them to vote for someone who is not qualified, because they would rather have that, then Trump. Which is sad, because they never looked at what he has done for America, just that they hated him. Is he perfect? No, none of us are.
When folks would tell me as a Christian, how can you support him? My thought was this. Christ died for my sins, He has forgiven me. Extended grace to me. How could I judge my President, when I have been given grace? And how dare anybody judge him, when we all will be judged by God. For we all sin, and come short of the glory of God.For our own sins. And nobody knows if Trump repented to God, that is personal, and that is not always known.
But again, the battle is the Lords. I am so sad to see our country even debating this, challenging this, when we should all see the truth. In how this was handled, and yes even more so, in what Trump has done for America. He deserves the next four years as President.
I see that now more than ever. This battle in rectifying the votes, is Gods battle. God never loses. I know that, with great certainty. But will He allow America to be taken?
See if Trump loses this battle. I believe America will truly lose in the end. Our freedoms could very well be taken. They want to change our country. No doubt about it. They don’t deny it either. With discarding capitalism, to socialism, we would lose. Freedom of speech taken away. Lord, knows what else, but I am surprised so many Americans, again, are not seeing what’s happening. Or they would fight for Trumps rights. As well.
They support this agenda, that would hurt us. See you don’t steal something, and expect something to be called yours, when in the eyes of God, it is not yours. They did not battle for the election. That man, hardly went to any rallies. No if he wins it, I am sorry, they stole the election.
And they had Americans helping them. What does that say about anybody who would help someone do wrong, in any sense. The moral code of our country is broken.
I pray, America will repent, and get right with God. Truly not only because I know the difference. But someday we will all stand before God, and you don’t want to throw away salvation, when you can just make it right with Christ now, and do the right things for our nation.
Please I implore you. I may never speak to you, but this is our country, don’t accept bad behavior. Don’t accept fraudulence. That’s not a tactic Americans are known for. We are better than that. We have been given so much as a nation. But freedom is not free, and many have died for that flag, and our freedoms. Democrats and Republicans should demand accountability. In our voting systems.
But even now, do folks really see what they are doing? Do they see how this will affect them, their families, the future generations? Do they see how their souls will be changed, by choosing this for the future?
Choose this day, whom you will serve.
“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15 KJV
I choose God, I choose America, I choose to stand with Donald J. Trump as President of the United States.
I just want to conclude with these thoughts, because I am old school. I was taught to honor, God and country. So I honor our President. He has earned our trust. I believe, he has earned the next four years. To be President. I honor him, because he honors America. I truly believe the votes are there, they have just been stalled, or hidden.
I want to see all Americans coming together for the good of our nation, and seeing truth. And uniting. Even the Democrats. To stop the hate. To do what is right. In the sight of God. And for the benefit of who we are as a nation.
I have had family who have served this nation, including my own father. Including my uncles, one uncle in particular was a prisoner of the Korean war.
I remember my family instilling that respect in me. To honor God and country. To honor the highest office in the land. Even if you do not agree with some of the authorities, you honored it.
But I don’t think to be honest, many Americans are going to just allow this, if it does not get resolved soon. I don’t think they will. They are going to fight. There may very well be a Civil war. I don’t know. See, when you steal something, or take something, like an election, that does not look good for our nation. And there are true patriots who will fight for our country. Against enemies foreign or domestic.
Oath of Office
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Are people taking this oath to heart, just as Americans? I just think, because of the nature of who we are as a nation, there will be a fight.
I just want to thank our President. I don’t know if he will ever see this, or if it will get blocked, or denied access. We see this lately. Censorship. So I don’t know.
But, I want to thank him for who he is, for loving this nation. For doing things that sometimes were not even seen, but God saw. That blessed us. I hope he is encouraged. I hope his own relationship with Christ is strengthened. Because there is an anointing on him, a calling. One thing I have seen about Trump is that he is a fighter. I do hope he fights for this. I admire guts, I admire courage, especially when it comes to truth. Because truth is so needed in our nation. Gods truth. But I hope he gives it to God, because God never loses a battle. Never. So I hope he does not concede in this.
So, I pray, for those who pray. Because it is not over. Pray, that God gets the glory, in this, as we give this to God. The battle for the soul of our nation belongs to God. Because we always will be ONE NATION UNDER GOD.
Let us pray for a victory. For all Americans. Of all faiths. That’s how great this nation is! Let us trust God, with all our hearts. America lets pray, we want God to bless America again. But let’s bless God!
My husband just called me, and informed me that Biden is the President. According to the Press. That they counted all the electoral votes. I am shocked. How can they make that announcement when the votes have not been verified? But, in God we trust. I still hope the truth will prevail. I don’t think its over. Thank you for reading this.
So, its been a week since I wrote the above, I have not published it.
I have been praying for our President. I cannot even imagine what’s in his heart, and mind. They have been so cruel to him. And the comments, thoughts, go beyond anything I have ever seen. There is just a lack of respect. For the highest office. And yet, we see him not giving up. I sense his name Trump, and what it means. There is a lot to be said about a name….
In the dictionary it defines it as: Trump – A card of a suit any of whose cards will win over a card that is not of this suit.
The battle is the Lords, and I pray that he does get that victory, and literally TRUMPS THEM ALL With Gods help. I have even tweeted a few tweets to him to remind him the battle is the Lords. Not sure if he seen my thoughts. But that’s o.k. God knows.
I keep having a sense, that God is not mocked. But they are mocking God in this. Even with the things they propose, and want to overthrow, like the wall. Like opening the borders. And yes abortion. It bothers me. It bothers me, when I see any kind of evil, but to steal an election, is just wrong. Many see it as well. I hope we continue to pray for the President.
What saddens me, is many are disloyal now to our President. There are voices, who claim to be his friend, yet they are telling him to concede. To give up. To bow out graciously.
I don’t know about that, happening. From what I understand, this could very well go to the House of Representatives, because there are too many discrepancies. And this last has happened, I believe in the 1800’s. When votes had been compromised, and they could not reach a consensus.
I am praying. Knowing the battle is the Lords, knowing He never loses a battle, and knowing God can make a way. I am praying…..
I hope all of America, demands accountability in this. As they pray. This is our nation.
God bless Trump. God bless America. I pray, we bless God.
I feel led to write this. I really have not felt the Holy Spirit, to prompt me to write lately. So I will obey.
But I have sensed because of this election, that many are misled. Many are deceived by the enemy. Many are believing lies, that will cause them to betray God and country. I see Christians hating. Judging. Believing the lies from the devil.
BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED: FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP. GALATIANS 6:7 King James.
It saddens me. Because if you have ever felt a sense of betrayal from someone, it wounds you greatly. The pain, could go on, even though you are healed, but like when still waters are touched, the circle of reminders, through the vibrations, reminds us. Of the betrayal.
I always want to look at how God looks at things. I know His ways, are not our ways. But I have had poor judgement in the past. With people, with choices, with myself. It grieves me.
But see, there are boundaries, lines, we should never cross. And if one finds themselves, hating others, or not honoring the things that we should, like God and country.
One is doing a disservice to themselves, but also the country, they live in. They are crossing a line into the enemies territory.
You have to look at the fruit of people, because the devil will use many people, who are lost themselves. Then the blind, will lead the blind.
LET THEM ALONE: THEY BE BLIND LEADERS OF THE BLIND. AND IF THE BLIND LEAD THE BLIND, BOTH SHALL FALL INTO THE DITCH. MATTHEW 15:14 KING JAMES.
I see right now in our country, a very anti-Christ spirit. A spirit, that calls folks to hate, to disobey God, to turn from our Constitution, the things that our forefathers taught us, and it grieves me. As I am sure it grieves God.
This is betrayal.
I have always appreciated loyalty. When I have had it, or thought I had it, I gave of myself as well. Totally 100 percent. But when I have not been loyal, say to God, by disobeying Him, when I was younger. I reaped sorrow, sadness, and it hurt me.
I just sense that we need to look at the fruit of things, and people. I don’t want to judge anybody, because actually, when folks tell me I am wrong, because I support my President.
I just think, you know Christ forgave me. Extended grace to me. I don’t have to judge my President. Thats Gods job, not mine. I am called to pray for our President. To walk in love, those are the greatest commandments.
BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER. JOHN 13:35 King James.
I look at the other party, the things they stand for now, are total contradictions. The hate, is so obvious. The disrespect. To God and country. The anti-Christ spirit. The fight for life, for the unborn. To continue to kill the innocent.
It is sad to see in Adults. But it is sadder to see in our youth.
There is a fight for our soul, of this nation. And we have reaped Gods wrath. If not now, when we stand before Him.
I don’t know if it will be totally revealed, but I just sense we need to get right with God. By our choices. Even in politics.
FOR THE WRATH OF MAN WORKETH NOT THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD. JAMES 1:20 King James.
This is not religion. Folks, this is about relationship with God, lets prove, we are loyal to God and country. This will hurt us.
AND TRULY THE SON OF MAN GOETH, AS IT WAS DETERMINED: BUT WOE UNTO THAT MAN BY WHOM HE IS BETRAYED. LUKE 22:22 King James.
I suppose, I want to emphasize the word “seems” in my title, because, well anything, can change, with God. All things are possible. He says, is there anything too hard for me?
BEHOLD, I AM THE LORD, THE GOD OF ALL FLESH: IS THERE ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR ME? JEREMIAH 32:27 King James.
And honestly, I know there is nothing impossible with Him. Thats why I love my King James word. Because of His promises. His holiness, His authority, His power….
Because He speaks things to my soul, that I embrace. That I claim from His Holy word. Again, this is why I emphasize a King James, because it is His voice. Not changed.
Anyway, back to my thoughts, I have seen Him do things in my life that amazes me. Including the beginning of my life, since, I was not supposed to be born, but my father prayed for me. I give Him glory.
I have been having a hearts desire for years. And please don’t try and guess it, I would not tell you, if you did guess correctly.
DELIGHT THYSELF ALSO IN THE LORD; AND HE SHALL GIVE THEE THE DESIRES OF THINE HEART. COMMIT THY WAY UNTO THE LORD; TRUST ALSO IN HIM; AND HE SHALL BRING IT TO PASS. PSALM 37:4-5 KING JAMES.
I have held onto that, and maybe you can see, as I explain further. It’s a promise from God. That I have held onto dearly.
In some ways, and yes some other ways, it’s just been a matter of trusting God, waiting, and waiting. And waiting some more. And then waiting again.
I am taking a rest, for now. If it happens. Wow, glory to God. Sounds sad to write. But its true. I just put it in the lap of my Lord, at His throne.
See, I have found myself kind of freaking out about this. In other words, I found that I was putting my happiness, in this hope, this desire. Lately, it consumed me.
I don’t think I have been living daily content or fulfilled, because I kept thinking if this happens, I will be happy. It will fulfill me, I want to say;
Look what the Lord has done for me.
But, I found myself lately being very discontent. It’s been affecting my moods, my spirit. Yesterday, I had an epitome. A revelation. I thought, is this thing an idol to me, am I getting my eyes off of God? Am I consumed. Obsessed? Yes. I think I was. Maybe because I have wanted it for so long…..
I had a conversation with someone the day before this, who dismissed me so rudely. Because he had posted, that you don’t have to do anything for God to love you. Or something to that affect. It bothered me, deep down. I was not trying to argue, but I wanted to express my heart in this.
Because I believe in works.
I believe in serving God. I believe in being a reflection of Christ, doing as He did, in some ways. I am not God, I don’t claim to be. But I want to be like Jesus, doing things for Him. I guess that’s why I write. I am not perfect, nor will I ever claim to be. I know my faults, and flaws more than anybody. Seems the devil knows them too, so I have to rebuke him in these matters.
But anyway, I expressed to this person, I love serving God, and he called it religion. Dismissed me, like I was a pesky fly, said, he was showing the love of God to others. But dismissed me. I thought it was hypocritical. To say that yet be rude to me. So I pursued it, and told him it was not right to call my feelings or expression religion. It ended up, where he did not nor could not see the error of his rudeness. So, I tried to be the mature one, and ended the conversation.
Not sure, why this scripture comes to me, maybe because he really did trample on my feelings, concerning serving God.
GIVE NOT THAT WHICH IS HOLY UNTO THE DOGS, NEITHER CAST YE YOUR PEARLS BEFORE SWINE, LEST THEY TRAMPLE THEM UNDER THEIR FEET, AND TURN AGAIN AND REND YOU. MATTHEW 7:6 King James.
It hurt me. I don’t know why. Maybe I did not have my armor of God on tightly. But I had a fretful nights sleep. The next morning, yesterday, I woke up. Angry, agitated, and I won’t go into details. But I did not act nice, or kind. Christ like. Instead, I was the old Elena, the one, before Christ. I saw myself so frustrated. I cried most of the morning. I repented.
But something told me, and I believe it was the holy spirit, go back to that conversation, and tell that mean man you forgive him. So I did.
I felt the release so much, that I saw the poison, his mocking did to me, especially coming from a so-called Christian man. That when I said, I forgive you, I felt the release. It was that quick.
This man by the way, did not acknowledge me. But I believe he saw the post. It’s o.k. I don’t need his confirmation or acknowledgement. I just need peace with God.
But it made me see too, that this hearts desire of mine, was also contributing to my anger. To my hopes. And I let it go, once and for all, and I said,
Lord, thy will be done.
I am tired. You cannot believe how tired I am. Weary tired. I am tired of hoping for this. I am tired, of dangling this in front of me, and I cannot live my life like this, so desirous of this thing. I have hoped for it to be my miracle. But, it has not manifested.
I felt another release, praise God….
I am not mad at God. I want to say this, and clarify that I am not angry at anybody to be honest. I feel the love, and the sweet holy spirit more than ever. But I have to say, I don’t feel this hope or urgency any more. He took the desire away.
If it’s for sure a no, I think I can live with it. I know I can. See, I want to be careful with God, because I know even here, I have power of life and death in my tongue. So I don’t want to speak with finality, that it is a no. It just seems like a no. But I am just leaning on God, to have a new spirit. A clean heart. I think I really need to work on that now.
But I am o.k. I have wanted this hearts desire for years. Maybe I have tried to work toward it to please God, to get it. Maybe He has tested me, I kind of feel like I failed Him, to be honest. Like I failed the test. I don’t know.
But, in any event, I just want to pick the pieces up, of what I have left, in this and go on. See, it seems like He has closed so many doors, on me, that I wonder. But I have tried, no one cannot say, I have not, because I have. I have repented. When I am wrong, I admit it, but when I am right, I stand by that as well.
If I see someone get their heart desire in this, I will be happy for them. I will rejoice. I will not compare myself to them and ask God why? Nor will I be jealous, and let that ugly enemy poison my soul.
Anyway, I just wanted to write this, to encourage you. If you are waiting, and hoping, maybe this will help. Even if it seems like it’s a no. God loves you. He loves me, I know that.
His refusal to me, in this matter will not change my mind or heart about God. I know He is not like a genie, or an ATM, where you push His buttons to get what you want. He is almighty God. I am in awe of Him, His creation. I always want to do things HIS way, even if it looks like works. Because it gives me faith. Because again, He is the way, the truth, and life.
EVEN SO FAITH, IF IT HATH NOT WORKS IS DEAD BEING ALONE. JAMES 2:17 King James.
Hey if I can live a good life, a healthy life, and a life that worships Him in works. With my family. I have love. Even though some folks that are not in my life, that I called friends. And I loved….
I know my salvation is sweet. I will never take for granted what Christ did for me on the cross. I won’t treat it shabbily. By sinning. Or by treating my salvation like a license to sin. I will serve God for the rest of my life. You can call it works. You can even mock it, and call it religion. Like that mean man did. But I know God is not mocked. Galatians 6:7 King James.
But, I feel obligated to God, and I am grateful. I am free, this desire, no longer controls me.
It may seem like no. But I am o.k. I love God. And I praise God. I am so thankful. Anyway….
I am not letting go of my hearts desire. I want to make sure I say this. I have hoped in it for so long. It is a part of me, I cannot turn my desires, on and off. But I am letting go of just being consumed by it. I am trusting God. I had to rephrase this. But I am not letting go of God. Ever. I hold onto His hand tightly. I love HIM!
EVERY GOOD AND PERFECT GIFT IS FROM ABOVE, AND COMETH DOWN FROM THE FATHER OF LIGHTS, WITH WHOM IS NO VARIABLENESS, NEITHER SHADOW OF TURNING. JAMES 1:17 KING JAMES.
