Good Afternoon and Blessed Sunday,

                                      "My Jesus"

          The world likes to put Jesus in their very own little box.  Some prefer to think of Jesus as a baby in the manger.  A sweet little baby in the manger who makes no demands.   You live all year long as you please and drag the manger scene out of the attic at Christmas and sing sweet songs about Jesus.  You might even try to be a little nicer during the Christmas seasons.   After all Christmas is about kindness and love.  When the tree goes down, the manger goes back to the attic and the real you, comes out.

             Some prefer to see Jesus as a very loving kind man, who makes no demands on anyone.  He talks about love all the time, but He doesn't talk about sin.   We think of His Sermon on the Mount as sweet suggestions.  While it would be nice to live like that, God knows we are just humans.

          Some see Jesus on the cross.  He has died for everyone and everyone is going to Heaven.  Still seeing Him on the cross, we do not have to worry about Jesus calling us out for sins.  We live like we want to and on Christmas and Easter we try to make it to a Church service.

                Jesus cannot be put in a box.  He came to earth as a baby, He lived and He called out hypocrites and called sinners to repentance.   Jesus is no longer on the cross and He is now in Heaven in His Heavenly glory.   Jesus is coming back, but not as a baby, but as a King of the World.  He will rule with an fist of iron.  Jesus will not be a passive sweet ruler.  He will demand obedience.

                      When we become a child of God, we must accept all of Jesus and not just the part of Jesus that we are more comfortable with.  Jesus is love!  He left Heaven to die for the whole world.  He is also judge and jury.  Christians will stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ and sinners before the Great White Throne.  Contrary to popular beliefs, we will not stand before Jesus, giving Him a piece of our mind.  The Bible's says sinners and non sinners will fall before His feet and declare that He is God.

                         We decide in this life which Throne of Judgement we will stand before.   If we accept Jesus as our Savior, only our works will be judged.  Our sins will be covered by the precious blood of Jesus.  If we refuse the gift of salvation, we will stand before the White Throne, where we will have to give account of every deed and sin that we committed.  We decide.   We cannot blame anyone but ourselves for where we will be on judgement day.  The time to choose is before you die.  Your friends and loved ones cannot pray you into Heaven, before or after you die.   You must choose in your own lifetime, who you will serve.  Will you serve yourself or God?  You cannot choose which Jesus to serve.  There is only one Jesus and He is King of Kings and Lord of Heaven. 

     Jesus is still calling sinners to salvation.  As long as you have breath, you can cry out to be saved.  When you become A Christian,  you love all of Jesus.  Remember Jesus judges in righteous judgement.  He does not rule out of hate but justice.    The angels of Heaven, rejoice when another sinner becomes saved.

Good Afternoon and Happy Saturday,

                                                   How Do Please I God?

Hebrews 11:6"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.”

            Faith is a spiritual muscle.  Just as we exercise physical muscles, to make them stronger, we must exercise spiritual muscles to make them stronger.   When troubles come and we do not trust God to see us through, instead of our faith growing stronger, it becomes weaker.  The next time trouble comes we will be defeated faster and discouraged sooner then before. 
          Even the world believe trouble makes us stronger people.  There is a saying:  "what does not kill me; makes me stronger".    The world depends on their own strength to force their way through troubles.  As children of God, we exercise our faith in Him, to get us to the other side of troubles. How do we acquire more faith?

Romans 10:17“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

                  Our faith grows when we are sitting under good Bible Preaching and teaching.   We can also listen to good Bible Preachers and Teachers on good Christian radio.  Hearing the word of God, increases our faith in God.    Sadly there are some Christians, who believe enough to get saved, but do not want to take the effort to grow in the Lord.  It's like: "I've got my ticket to Heaven and I am just going to go about my life till Jesus comes or I die".   They are baby Christians and they are content to live their lives as baby Christians.   Sadly there are denying themselves a daily relationship with God. 

         The closer we walk and talk with God, the sweeter our relationship is.   We all have distant relatives and friends that we get a Christmas card from them and that is the only contact we have with them.  Just a card to let us know they are still alive.  Some people seek to have that kind of relationship with God.   Just as a once a year card, is not a close relationship with people, a distant relationship with God robs ourselves and God.

      God sent His Son to die so that we can spend eternity with Him.   We prepare for that relationship on earth by getting to know Him, here on earth.  Not only does a distant relationship with God, robs us, but it makes us vulnerable to false teaching.   A Pastor or teacher says that God has changed His mind about sin and has become "enlighten" by the world's standard and if we do not know the heart of God, we can be tempted to jump on that bandwagon.   God knows all.  He does not need the world to teach Him anything!
Jesus said that He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  What was sin in Noah's day, is sin today.

          The greatest reason to stay close to God, is our love for Him.  When you begin a new relationship with a boyfriend or girlfriend, the more time you spend together, the more your love for them grows.  The more time we spend with God, the more our love for Him grows.  As and old bluegrass Gospel songs says "Wise men still seek Him!.   

            Faith is a gift from God.  Without a measure of faith given to us, we would not be able to believe that Jesus can save sinners.  Rejoice in the measure of faith that you have, and seek God's face and learn of Him, so that your faith will go stronger.  Have a blessed day and remember God loves you.

The humming bird is coming around more.  I saw the tiniest little squirrel yesterday.  It was so skinny.  Happy to see it at the feeder, eating.

Good Afternoon and Happy Friday,

                When we love someone, we hurt when they are are hurt.  When a memory of someone being cruel to the person we love comes into our mind,  we still hurt for them.   The devil would love to stir up bitterness in our hearts.   If we are not bitter from our past hurts, he will try to make us bitter over our loved ones, past hurts.  The devil will even try to make it seem righteous.   Reminding us of the times, that some one was cruel to someone we love.  While there is a righteous anger, there is no righteous bitterness.  Bitterness is a cancer that devours the soul. 

           So what we do, when the devil reminds of past hurts our loved ones suffered?   We pray for both parties.   Why should we pray for someone who hurt our loved ones?   It is the right thing to do.  When we pray for both parties, we prevent bitterness from growing  in our heart and we please God.  Think of memories of past hurts for ourselves and others as a little reminder to pray for all parties involved.  Pray brings healing and healing brings peace of heart and mind. 

            As children of God let us seek to grow spiritually every day.  Ask God for spiritual strength so we are not blown away by the trials of this earth.  Study the Word of God, so we are not corrupted by false Preachers, who have left the truth of the Gospel to preach a new Gospel that is more politically correct and more pleasing to the ears.  Lest, we be led astray.  May we be working every day to share God's love with others.  Let us pray that our hearts be filled with God's Holy Spirit.  Let us be good watchmen aware of the times we are living in and looking for the return of Jesus.

         Remember, friends, no where in the Bible does God tell us to be looking for the anti-Christ, nor stocking up food and water for the tribulation.  While it is good to stay prepared for storms,  God did not call us to spend time and money stocking  up bunkers for the tribulation.   We are to be spending time working for God, studying His Word, and praying.

Saw a humming bird in my yard.

Good Afternoon and Happy Thursday,

                                   I am a Christian.  Why am I suffering?

1 Peter 1:6-9New King James Version (NKJV)6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, 8 whom having not seen[a] you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, 9 receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.

          I do not know a Christian who is not under a attack from the devil.   Does this mean that God has forgotten us?   Has His love for us grow faint?   Is He so preoccupied by the evil in the world, that individuals are not as important to Him?   The answer for every question would be- No. 

        Of course we know the devil knows his time is growing shorter and he is attacking Christians on every side.  Why does God allow him to do that?  Could it be so we are more refined and have less things we will have to give account of at the Judgement Seat of Christ?  Could it be that God is allowing these to happen to us, out of His love for us.   Remember when Paul had to discipline the Churches, he often did it by letter, even though he had plans of visiting the Churches,  soon.  He would say to his brothers and sisters in Christ, I would rather discipline you in letters, so that I can love on you in person.  In other words let me correct you now so when we meet face to face we will only have joyful things to talk about.  Could this be one of the reasons that God is allowing us to suffer? 

      Maybe God is allowing us to be refined so we are spiritually stronger for this world and refined gold when we see him face to face.  In this time of testing, let us resist the devil's temptation to grow angry and bitter towards God.  Remember Job's wife said for him to curse God and die.  Job's wife had given up on God.  Job was willing to suffer here for his future in Heaven.  Of course he had questions and so do we.  As long as we talk respectfully to God we can tell Him that we are not happy with our circumstances.  A friend quoted the verse yesterday, "Though God slay me, yet I will serve Him".   May God bless Him with answers for his needs.

     Life is not easy now, my friends.  If the Lord delays His coming, we may even suffer persecution for our faith.   Do not fear the future.  What ever God allows us to suffer, He will give us the grace to sustain us.
Our suffering here will pale into mist when we step into Heaven.  We hope not in the present but our hope is invested in a God who holds the future in His hands.  Heaven is our future brothers and sisters in Christ.  We work now not just for our reward in Heaven,  but because we love God with all of our heart and soul.
Pray for our lost family, friends, and the lost of the world.

      If you have not accepted Jesus as your Savior.  Come today, to the one who died for your sins.  He is waiting to save you.  You cannot process a gift, until you accept it.  To be saved, you must ask for forgives and turn from your sins.  We cannot be saved and continue to live in sin.  Just as you cannot be clean and stay in a mud pit.  If you reject salvation, eternity in hell is your future.  Decide  today, where you will spend your eternity.   Do not say that a loving God would not send any one to hell.  God sent His only Son to die for us so we could go to Heaven.  If we reject the gift of salvation, then we ourselves have chosen hell.

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday,

                                               "Where is God?"

John 1:1-5King James Version (KJV)1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 The same was in the beginning with God.3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

                God has always existed; He has no beginning and He has no end.  God is bigger the universe. Yet in His grace and love for mankind is so great, that in His great marvelous wonder, He hears the whispered prayers of mankind.    We find God with just a prayer.   We learn about God and His great love for us, by studying the Bible.  God wrote the Bible, using men, to pen a love letter to mankind.  If the Bible is new to you, begin in John in the New Testament and if you ask God to make His Word to real to you.  God wants you to know Him.  He is not hiding from you.  If we come to Him and ask Him to make Himself real to us in a way we can understand, He will do so.  How to we become a child of God?

Romans 10:9King James Version (KJV)9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

           Being a child of God will not make your life perfect.  In fact, in some ways your life may become harder?   Why?  We are living in the last days.  There will be a day, when an angel will blow a trumpet and Jesus will call his children to Heaven.   The devil knows his time is short so he fights hard to discourage Christians and fights to put doubts in their hearts.  Remember, my friend,  Heaven will be worth all the pain and suffering we have here on earth, just to walk into Heaven's gate.  Jesus is with us everyday and He will never forsake us.  We pray to Jesus every day.   We praise Him for our salvation and His greatness.  We tell Him our needs and ask Him to intervene for us.   We pray for our lost loved ones and the lost souls in the world.  The most important decision you will ever make, is whether to accept Jesus as your Savior and Lord or to reject Him.  Your own decision will determine where you go when you die. 

          As fellow Christians, we rejoice when a new soul comes to salvation.  Just as God said, we wish no one would go to hell.  Why does God just save everybody?  He gives everyone a choice.  Look at it this way.  What if the government arranged marriage?  What is they put two people together as a married couple?  No one would like that.   We want to know the person we marry not only wants to be with us, but they love us and chose us for themselves.   God wants Heaven to be filled with people to be with Him throughout eternity who chose to love God and to accept His wonderful gift of salvation.   It is more then that though,  nothing  unholy can enter into the presence of God.  When we accept Jesus a our Savior, He covers our sins with His own precious blood.   We become Holy, not because we are perfect, but because Jesus was perfect and made the perfect sacrifice for our sins.
         Where do we find God?   We find God with an sincere prayer.

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday,

           As I walked around doing my chores this morning, I was overwhelmed by physical weakness and a feeling of helplessness.   As the devil, sought to overcome me, God reminded me of the words  to "Just a Closer Walk to Thee".  My mind was so tired I did not remember the name of the song, but the first verse played in my head over and over.   God was gently reminding me that even though by body grows so weak and my mind is tired, He is with me.   I can walk in His Strength.   He will sustain me.  Yes, when I am weak, He is strong. 
                    1 I am weak but Thou art strong;
Jesus, keep me from all wrong;
I'll be satisfied as long
As I walk, let me walk close to thee.

           Why do the words say "Jesus, keep me from all wrong ?", because when we are weak physically, emotionally, or spiritually, we are susceptible to the devil's tares.  The devil will try to get us to give up.  He will tell us that God has lost interest in us or just doesn't care about us anymore.  Just as God reminded me this morning, He will reach out to us in our weakness.   Do not allow the devil to fill your heart with anger at God, so instead of embracing His love, we walk away from Him.  It would be a tragedy to live for God for so long and turn away from Him and reject Him, when we are so close to the finish line.

           I read post everyday on Facebook of Christians who are under attack from the devil.   As His time to torment the children of God, comes to an end,  the devil fights hard against them.  He seeks to cause some to walk away from their faith in God.  He seeks to cause God's children to sin and soil their testimony.  When he cannot cause God's children to turn from their faith, or to sin, he think seeks to get the children to just give up working for God.   There is no retirement for the workers of Jesus on this side of Heaven.   We work for Jesus, even when we get so sick that are work is limited to praying for others. 

          Yes we are tired and some of us in bad health, but we press on to the prize.  When we are overwhelmed, we cry out to Jesus for help.  We have walked too many miles in the faith of Jesus, to turn back, now as the old song teaches us.  Our hope is not in the physical things of these earth.   Our hope is in the God of Heaven.  When the devil attacks, remind him of his future.  Remind yourself that we know the ending.  God is going to win.  We are on the winning side, though it may not seem like it now.   The world is overwhelmed with evil.  The devil looks like he has won the game, but we know the game is not over until Jesus comes back in the Second Coming and defeats the devil, the demons, and people who have chosen to fight for the devil.



There is a breeze outside my window and I am finding comfort in watching the leaves move.  I pray that you find little diamonds or blessings today to encourage you in your faith in Jesus.

Good Afternoon and Happy Monday,

                 We live in a world, were many have no hope or have lost hope.  Some children are born in this Country, in poverty,  to parents who have lost hope and the children themselves are growing up believing there is no hope for them.  This is producing a generation of children who are angry with their circumstances and at the Country they think has failed them.  In Chicago we see a city where politicians  are elected on their promises and who get rich themselves while their city and people grow poorer.  The politicians place the blame on others while they do nothing to rebuild the city, care for the children, and revive hope in the hearts of the people.  Instead of building up the people and encouraging hope, they are encouraging anger and bitterness in the people. At the bottom of this is the real problem and that is sin.

        Chicago is not alone with the sin of anger and bitterness.   People of all races are frustrated and angry that politicians are not fixing America.   The truth there is no political party or person who can fix America.
Only our Country's leaders and the people falling on our knees and seeking forgiveness of our sins, would fix America.  This does not mean we as Christians are to give up.   We pray for Christian leaders in troubled cities that are working to reach the loss.  We pray for politicians to open their eyes to the truth of this Country's great need of  God. 

             As children of God, we know our hope is in Him.  This world will one day have their "savior" who will have the power to do great things.  He will come in peace, but he will not be a man of peace.  He will claim to be able to save the world, but he will bring great evil to this world.  This man will be controlled by the devil and will hate Israel and Christians.  The Bible says because the world rejected Jesus, they will be given a strong delusion and will welcome this person and love him.  He will steal the souls of everyone around the globe who receives the mark of the beast.  God in His mercy gave the Apostle John what is going to happen in the tribulation.   God even told John when you see Israel sign a 7 year peace agreement with this person, you will know the tribulation has began.  Read The Book Of The Revelations in The Bible and you will know the truth of what is coming to this world of sin.

    We do not have to be here for the tribulation.  If we have accepted Jesus as our Savior and Lord and have turned from our sins we will be saved.  Those who are saved, will escape the tribulation and be taken up to Heaven in the rapture.   We as God's children have the blessed hope which is the rapture.

    As we wait for the time of grace to end, we live every day for Jesus.   We pray for the lost and as much as it is in our power we help those in need.  We do not need to live in fear.  We trust God to take care of us.  Whether we live to see the rapture or taken to God, in death, we need not fear.   We serve a God that spoke the universe into existence and yet He takes note when a little sparrow falls.  God is not going to forget His children nor lose tract of them.  He is with us all the time.   Our hope in not in feeble men and women who are often driven by selfish desires, but a God who sent His Son to die for our sins.

Good Morning and Blessed Sunday,

Matthew 24:37-39King James Version (KJV)37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

                       If you are afflicted with a chronic disease or disability, you are hit with it as soon as you wake up.  You do not have to leave a note to remind yourself of the issues with your body.    Unlike your symptoms that remind us that are body has problems, we do not have an alarm clock that tells us the day that Jesus is coming back for His children.   The verse above reminds us that when Jesus comes back every day will seem to be the same ordinary day.  On the other hand, Jesus tells us that we can know the season.  Just as a farmer knows when to plant and when to harvest, we can know by the signs of time when Jesus is coming back.

                      Ten years ago, Schools had no need to prepare for students who considered themselves transgender or gender fluid.   These are the signs that the devil has stepped up his game.  These things should remind Christians that we are living in the last days.   This does not mean we quit our jobs and take our families out to the dessert to wait for Jesus to return.  We prepare for a future on our earth but we live for Jesus every day as if it was our last day on earth.

             An angel is not going to come to you and whisper that today is the last day that you can do anything for the Kingdom of God.  This said, we work every day as if it is the last day to work for Jesus.  Whether Jesus comes tomorrow or twenty years from now, every day that we work for Jesus is not only a plus for  now, but we are earning rewards for eternity in Heaven.  This does not mean our motives are to be rewards.   Our motives should be to shine for the God who sent His Son to live, die, and rise again, for our salvation.
We should work for God because we love Him.

                As we draw closer to Jesus, our hearts long for His return.  This does not mean our loved for our families has began to fade, no it is, as our love for our families grows, that our desire for them to be saved grows stronger.  When we wake up each morning, we should pray that God will use us for His glory.  We should pray every day for our lost loved one, friends, and lost souls around the world.  Jesus is coming for His own, may He find us working and looking up for His return and not caught up in the tares of the world.

Good Morning and Happy Saturday,

                 Every day the family of God is increasing.  Souls from every Nation are being saved.   God is reaching souls with visions, internet,  Christian radio, and TV.   There are revivals all over this world in the hearts of men and women.  The news media talks about all the world conflicts and there is no doubt that we are living in an age that the wrong move could start WWIII,  yet it is in these times that Jesus is saving souls in every Nation.

                  We still live in a Country with Religious freedom, not as much as in the past,  but we can still choose where to worship.   We should be praying every day for lost souls around the world.   We should support missions and organizations that are sending people at their own peril,  to share the Gospel.  We should prayer for those in harm's way for the sake of the cross.  We should pray for these new baby Christians.  Of course we should be rejoicing as the family of God grows.  Every new soul saved is important and our hearts should glow with love for them.

             While it is right to love our Country, stand up for the National Anthem, and give respect and love to our present and former military; our hope is in God.   We pray that God will guide our leaders to make the right decisions, but we remember God has a plan.  We trust Him to protect us while He works out His plans for this world.  There is a lot of uncertainty and no one knows what is going to happen, but God, we should not fear but trust in the God who loves us.  Whether we live our die, if we have repented and accepted Jesus' gift of salvation, God is with us.  Our hope is in the God of Heaven.

Good Morning and Happy Friday,

              This morning as I went to clean the birdbath , I could not find the rag I keep outside, just for that purpose.   After I gave the birdbath a good power washer and went to turn off the water, I found the rag.  At that point I found the rag, I even remember the circumstances of why I put it where I did.  God knew mankind was prone to forget before He even made him.   

     There are many times in the Bible that prophets made a small mountain out of rocks to remind themselves and the people of the work God did for them.   These rocks were to remind their ancestors also of the miracles God had done for God's people.  We no longer build rock piles to remind ourselves but we can do as David said and encourage our self in the Lord.  We do this when we remind ourselves of the hard roads that God got us through.  The miracles that God brought about in our lives. 

     When we remind ourselves of past victories, we build up faith in our hearts so that we can trust God today.   When the devil tells us that God doesn't care about us, we remind him of all the times God has shown His love for us.  God was with us in the past and He is with us today.  God has not lost any of His power and He still knows all.  The trials of the past are what made us be what we are today.  Just as it takes physical exercise to grow a strong body, it takes spiritual exercise to grow, spiritually. 

           We have an advantage over the people of Moses.  We have a copy of the Bible that shows us the miracles of the past including the birth of Israel.  We have the Bible, that teaches us why Jesus chose to die for our sins.  We have the future of the world as told by God to John of what the future holds for this world, Christians and sinners.

        We can rest easily, knowing that if God was to call us home today, whether by accident or the rapture, we would be welcomed into Heaven by the God, who loves us more then anybody.  We can live each day at peace.  The troubles we have and the worries we have we can take to Jesus every day.   We ask each day for God to give us a measure of hope and peace to get us through each day.

    We may have to hunt for our keys and cell phone when we leave the house, but we do not have to search for God.  When we accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, He put His Holy Spirit in our hearts so that we have God with us all the time.  The question is not : "Is God going to be with me today?"   The question is: "will I take time to talk with God and praise Him?"  We should pray everyday that we will live in a way that is pleasing to our Heavenly Father.   When we fall down and we will, we are not to blame others for our sins but, ask God for forgiveness. 

Saw a dove yesterday, drinking out of the bird bath.
