JESUS is my joy! Google to find Facebook group to join!

Ever notice how some people are so enthusiastic about joining in on some non-religious events to the point that they are willing to make certain sacrifices to be there? Ever wonder how our GOD (speaking to those who do love and  believe in GOD and His son Jesus now) must think about that?

Giving thought to this while looking at the parade for Thanksgiving day past, I saw many people outside enjoying themselves while watching the parade. I just wondered why some of us who do love GOD and believe in His son JESUS are not as enthusiastic, or hide our faith from the people around us, don’t bond together and give praise openly, or are afraid to pray for the past lives we have had.

And this is not to say that I don’t like a nice parade, because I do. This is why I watch them. But when a Pastor had said even about the super bowl football games…you will see people dressed in clothing of their team. Some will even paint their skins the colors of their team sacrificing the cold weather conditions and health related ailments that will come from all of this to support the team of their choice.

Our GOD sees all we do, and to think all of the people of the world HE watched over all and knows our hearts like these people that are here in these pictures. He knows what we do and have done in our lives. GOD sent His son JESUS to be our savior , the key to the Kingdom of GOD where we all can one day see our GOD smiling at us when we are their in HIS house. Praising HIM, seeing the face of JESUS before us smiling too saying welcome home, job well done.

Just to think, every person to live after Adam and Eve that walked the face of this earth GOD does know about. We can not hide what we do, never. We can not out smart GOD, and think if you do this where no one will see you, no one will know. But that’s the thing, it is mentioned in Genesis chapter one about creation

Genesis Chapter 1:2

“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

So…..seeing that GOD was forming the earth and there was darkness….HE CAN SEE what we do even if we can not see HIM.

But there is light now that was made for the earth, and we can see it.

Genesis 1:3

“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”

I do meet people beside from being in Church, who are joyfully willing to talk lovingly about the LORD . And it is a very good feeling when you meet a person who does share this sisterly or brotherly bond with you. You just feel it when you are with them. They will share that JESUS heart/love with you. So knowing such a wonderful feeling you want to share it with everyone you do meet, but there are some people who will be very mean and say or do mean things knowing you are saved and not like them.

The unbelievers do not understand that not ALL people who are Christians judge, I do not believe this is the right thing to do. For we are ALL sinners! There is no such thing as one person saying they are holier than thou. The Bible is very clear on this.

 Romans 3:23

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

We are to plant the seed, and allow the person to make up their minds on their own. GOD has that power of convection over them to give them the chance to make the choice of what road they will take. HE gives us all freedom of choice. You do not want to let anyone not go without knowing that they can be saved!

The Believers Christian Praise Parade

Christian can have a parade or greeting too. Why not? It is good to share the good news to those who want to hear it! I am just so very happy to meet people who do share my joy, and in a crowd praising GOD, wearing my JESUS heart and sprit…..and know that we have made the choice to follow JESUS where we all will look up to the heavens hands raised , throwing kisses to GOD in our praise parade as HE looks down on us and will say “these are me children who love me, and I do love them so.”

 

 

Matthew 22:36-40

JESUS is my Joy!

norman-rockwell

Matthew 22:36-40King James Version (KJV)

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

 

The drawing above by the late Norman Rockwell came up as I was researching the scripture on what our beloved JESUS has said about the commandments. I see back in his day that he too wanted to make a point about living in peace and wanting to get along with his fellow man.

That will be hard, seeing that not all mankind has the same JESUS love within them. Many listen to the evil one and do his evil to others through the temptation and lies he pours into their ears. This makes it hard for them to seek JESUS for they have been lied to for so long. Confused and misguided to do evil and told they are too bad now, that they are doomed for hell. But this is not any ones judgment  call but GODs seeing it is HIS heaven and HE is running it.

The news has been the same for centuries of people not getting along. It is the same sins done by the next generation of people since Adam and Eve. Same mean and evil nonsense. The evil one has been around since the creation of mankind….and sees how we were made. So this is why we need JESUS and to learn HIS ways as what it is said in the Bible. JESUS is very clear about love.

No evil has love in it.

This is why we need to understand what this nonsense we do to each other that is the opposite of what JESUS said to do to each other is not right. And we need JESUS to help us to do this 24/7 for we are of the flesh and can not do this alone. For hate against another person is a sin.

This news that is going on since Donald Trump was put into office has caused even more strife among the whole people of the earth. Feeding into the negative things that are happening around us because of him being in office. Many people did not want him in, and so now he is….so let GOD deal with him. Trump may not know GOD on a personal level or even be saved by the blood of JESUS. But, we have to remember the word of GOD in the Bible….one persons child against the other persons child. No matter how old we will be, we are still another woman’s child.

Psalm 121:7

“The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.”

This is what I depend on, not what any other human will say or do. It is not up to them to rule the earth. Look at what happened to King Nebuchadnezzar in the bible in the book of Daniel chapter 4? Pride took him down to his knees.

So with this in mind…..we can not let the ways of the world turn us from GOD and doing our beat to live in peace and to keep HIS commandment.

Matthew 22:39

36Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38This is the first and great commandment. 39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. 41While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David.

All of this makes sense, because if we can not get along here right now on GODS earth….what makes us think that we can take that non sense into heaven?  Think about this, we are ALL the children of the generations of Adam and Eve. Please let us all pray for the whole world.

Peace be to you all who do read this blog.


1 Timothy 2:2

1-timothy-chapter-2-verse-2-2017As it is written in the word of GOD.

1 Timothy chapter 2, verse 2

“For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty”

Pray for our leaders. As those who trust in our GOD to help us in times of need, we need to know HE will hear our heat felt prayers and concerns. For not just now because of who is President as of right now for 1/22/2017, but as for how those of us did pray for all of the Presidents and leaders before them.

Faith and trust in GOD does heal our hurts, and save us from situations that only GOD can intervene and correct for those HE loves who loves HIM! This is why we must pray at all times. Many people who lead are not followers of Christ, and their hearts may not be right. It is up to us true followers of Christ to ask GOD for help to guide these people who are leaders all over this planet.

No matter who is in office at any given time, or place we can find comfort and peace knowing that GOD is in control at all times.

JESUS is my Joy!

powerful-person-with-the-bible-2017

Have you ever been to the point where you feel like you can not do enough and that you have these burdens that will not go away? And you feel as though you are wondering where is my GOD? Why do I feel HE is not listening to me when I ask for help right now?

I have had many people ask me why didn’t GOD do this or that to help me when I asked Him for help?

Yet with all of the things we all do in our everyday life….do we take the time to have a relationship with GOD as much as we do with the people in our lives who seem to have all of the fun, money and success that you seek?

If we people spend the same attention to what GOD will say to us in our everyday lives we will see that He is talking to us. He is guiding us, He does love us. But if You do not let Him into your life , listen and take the time to establish a loving relationship with GOD and His son Jesus then what can you expect? There is no communication on our part, like a lost loved one who has moved away not looking back ever.

We all know that in the secular world of relationships they will falter and not last. People do change their feeling towards others from the weakness of the flesh. Love will be from stipulations on money, power and looks. When that disappears so do the friends. Conditional love, and not many people understand that is what they are doing. Even people who are Christians will do the same thing. All of the problems come from weakness of the flesh, when we seek our needs and wants first before GOD.

We all need a JESUS heart. The way how Jesus taught the masses to be so we all can get into heaven and be with GOD when our flesh dies and our spirit leaves to body. All we have to do is something really simple. Trust, love and believe in GOD the Father and His beloved son and follow the path that they will lead us every single day as best as we can. We can not without them for our flesh is weak and they are strong.

2 Corinthians 12:10Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

This is so encouraging and wonderful to know that an  all-powerful GOD and His son loves us so, that they made such a sacrifice of life so that we all will be saved and live if we choose GOD and his son Jesus and not the ways of the world.

Philippians 4:13King James Version (KJV)

13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

 

 

Following JESUS and not the world!

29-770x425

It is very hard to stay on the road of righteousness with all of the temptations  lurking about  the face of the earth when you WANT to stay on the right track. But our JESUS was tempted too for the times when He fasted and the evil one bothered Him too. Ask any Christian that loves the Lord , and they will tell you the very same thing. For we take up our crosses to follow JESUS, and sometimes it gets too heavy and JESUS is right there to take the load from you.

Luke 9:23  KJV

23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

For me , having the LORD in my life, to love GOD and His son JESUS is a comfort to my very soul. For this kind of comfort only comes from GOD the creator of all living things here on this planet. All of us who do well and want to see the #Rapture and wait for JESUS, find comfort in this to know we will see the face of GOD and to live with HIM in HIS house..

Matthew 16:24

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

No more pain, suffering  or torments. No one to lie to you and cause harm. Joy fills my heart to know that I will see all of my loved ones who have gone before me I will see again in GODS house. And for those new people I meet, I want them to know the good news as well too, I tell them about the  LORD so they can have the same wonderful feelings I do right now because I do care about every soul I met. I wonder if they know the LORD too?

Mark 12:30-31Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

30 and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. 31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Many people who love the sin that they are in, will not want to listen to you, but they listen to the evil one instead. For he will lie to people as hard as he can. He was kicked OUT of heaven and he surely does not want ANYONE to go the heaven and be with GOD. This is why many will laugh and call every loving Christian a false rude name because they are lied to and have taken the sinful habit and cling to it. Meanwhile those of us who hate sin press on to be right with GOD , both side are by choice. But who in their true love in their heart for all mankind wants to see anyone suffer for all of eternity, or even while they live here on earth? #Google what it says about #persecution in the Bible. Secular people think that Christians don’t have problems at times, but we do through persecution.

Use your computer , and #GOOGLE all of the scripture you need for comfort and print out and copy what you need to refer to your Bible. Keep your Bible by your bed. I have used the site:

John 15:18 – If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before [it hated] you.

Matthew 5:44 – But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

1 Peter 3:17 – For [it is] better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

1 Peter 4:12-14 – Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:   (Read More…)

1 Peter 3:16 – Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

1 Peter 3:14 – But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy [are ye]: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;

1 John 3:13 – Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.

Luke 6:22 – Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you [from their company], and shall reproach [you], and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.

Matthew 5:10 – Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

2 Corinthians 4:8-12 – [We are] troubled on every side, yet not distressed; [we are] perplexed, but not in despair;

Hebrews 12:3 – For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

Romans 12:17-21 – Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

Still we hold on to the cross for we know that we can trust in the LORD to take what we can not bear any longer. Many times I have called on JESUS for help and he answered  me, many, many times! My faith keeps me going. For I do not bare this cross alone, ever! May everyone who reads this post get a blessing and be saved in the name of JESUS! Thank you JESUS!

Matthew 28:20

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.

                                                                          Amen.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

God’s everlasting wonderful light!

stars-october-2016

How beautiful is the wonders of the earth that was formed by GOD’s hand. I am in awe of what GOD has made for our universe! I look up to the heavens…as to see if JESUS was returning to bring all of us who do love Him with in in the Rapture. But then when looking at the stars in the sky on a clear night those stars look like diamonds sprinkled all over the  evening sky! If you think about it,  they have been there since before all of mankind was created and formed to walk God’s earth.

Genesis 1:3

“3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”

 

These stars are the same ones that JESUS our savior did see as he walked the face of the earth as a man….and they were the very same ones he saw being formed by  the hands of GOD our creator as well. So in a way we can say we are looking at what our JESUS did see back then!

I had always wanted to walk the same paths he walked here on earth in some cities, touching what he had touched and knowing that it still withstood the test of time! This has always made me feel comforted to know that what the Bible said is so true, these customs and way of dress has not changed much there in the Middle East. And that is a good thing, for to hold on to GOD and the paths He leads us all to is never wrong.

God the Father is comforting, Jesus His son who represents GOD is comforting . Just to know that how powerful GOD is, yet to make such wonderful things is way far beyond a humans understanding. And this is good, we do not need to know everything and to even think we can be on the level of God is not right, for we are the created…not the creator.

1 John 1:5

“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”

 

I do love GOD with all of my heart, mind, soul and strength. I am sharing this with you so that you will be able to know about this joy and make the choice to follow the light or not.  I do thank God for Jesus every single day too. Because to see that God is this powerful and has made all that we see in nature, how can we not have faith? Those stars are in the sky looking down on the earth to give us light in the night. The sun light and warmth in the day. God’s night light! Let us always follow God’s light and stay on the path to Him.

 

Psalm 136:7-9King James Version (KJV)

“”7 To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever:

The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever:

The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever.

 

The next time you see the stars in the sky, looking up thank our ever loving GOD for His son Jesus. For all who do believe in Jesus will be on the other side of those beautiful stars and live in the house of GOD, His beloved son Jesus and all of the angels there with GOD.  Be and stay in prayer and communication with God at all times. This is a fallen world and it is very easy to be distracted from communicating with GOD, it is good to build and keep a positive relationship with GOD and Jesus at all times.

Be blessed and a blessing to all who read this to be saved by Jesus the son of God.

 

John 1:7

“The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.”

King James Version

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Following GOD’s light!

giant-sunflower-2015

Praise and Glory be to GOD at all times now and forever!

What the Lord our GOD made as for plants , flowers, trees has always amazed me leaving me just to look how beautiful they are! Above all how creative loving HE is! With all of this going to mind , seeing GOD’s power, patience, and wisdom I am still so grateful for HIS Son Jesus! I am a follower of Jesus Christ and I am no ashamed of it. Grateful for what GOD did according to John 3:16

King James Version (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

See, I have read according to the research I have Googled on line and elsewhere that the sunflower follows the rising of the sun everyday from the east to west then back to east. Then finally they will hand their heads east in the end of their lives. This is so interesting to me to me how this large , beautiful, happy, majestic looking flower follows the Lords light! I have always loved these plants, and even more so as I watch how they grow. I am sharing a picture of one I have grown in my garden.

The one you see in the picture is the variety that will grow well over 7 feet tall with the best nourishment…feeding of their “souls” as they follow the sun. The more they are feed this nourishment of compost they get stronger and taller and able to withstand the strong winds and rain. Like when we pray and read the word of GOD. This is what will feed our souls and give us comfort.

Matthew 6:28

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

Their bases are solid into the ground, depending on what the Lord will naturally provide for them too. And like them, our base and our rock is Jesus. For well will not fall with Him…He holds us up! I have seen these flowers not budge during a hard rain, all they did was to grow even taller and their roots settle even deeper into the ground with the width of their stalks widen. Getting more secure into the foundation in the ground. Jesus and reading the word will do the same thing too for us all.

Psalm 18:2

The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

This is what I see for all of us who do believe in GOD and know that Jesus is HIS only begotten Son sent to earth to save us all from the sins that we all have done our whole lives long. The sacrifice that was made on that, so many years ago….the suffering that our beloved Jesus went through because of love was totally unconditional love. Jesus sent by GOD the Father of all creation, to save us all and to be able to see the face of GOD when we die is so humbling for me.

If you think about it like this, we should follow the SON like the sunflower does regarding the SUN. Follow Jesus from the morning of our wake, to sunset of the day to night and the rising of the SON from to the day when Jesus will returns to take us all home again to be with Him and to be able to bow and humble ourselves and see the face of GOD!

GOD is good, from the beginning of all time and to the end when we all face “east” and it is our last day on earth. And if we have not died before Jesus does return, we want to be ready. Not getting caught up in the ways of the world that is a distraction in the connection with GOD and Jesus. That is what the evil one is doing, trying to cause a break in the love connection with our GOD.

Think about this, in this way as we could compare ourselves to this wonderful flower that the LORD created to share with us all. The sunflower does not waver its connection with GOD’s light when there are no distractions blocking it from the sun such as trees, buildings and bushes. The grow straight and tall, all they want to do is to stay focused on HIS light from day to day until their end of life.

When you see a sunflower, remember how they follow the sun and how we all should follow the SON of GOD.

Hebrews 12:2King J354ames Version (KJV)

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Praise GOD at all times!

Have a blessed day and peace!
