9 11 – we will never forget.

Today, we remember the events that unfolded 20 years ago, on September 11, 2001.

We remember the bravery on display as firefighters rushed in to help those in distress.

We remember watching in horror as so many individuals fell or leaped to their deaths as they faced a horrible decision to stay inside this burning building or fall to their deaths. 

We watched in disbelief as so many of our citizens lost their lives that day. 

We looked on in utter pain and anguish as so many people staggered out of those buildings with life-changing injuries. 

We watched in horror as one at a time, one tower collapsed. Then the other collapsed from the intense heat of jet engine fuel.

We cried out to God as we wondered why this was happening. 

We prayed in unison as we asked God to help all those innocent people. 

Today, we remember, but perhaps the question we should ask is how can we ever forget? 

This event was meant to destroy America, but it had the opposite effect.

In the days following this horrific event, our country came together in unity and love. 

We came together in love for one another and for our beloved America. 

How ironic that today as we reflect, there are forces at work trying to tear America and Its citizens apart again. 

Today, there are those using racism and hate to divide our country and all our countrymen. 

We did not let our house divide then, and we cannot let it divide now. 

God’s word tells us that a house divided on itself, cannot stand (Mark 3:25)

https://biblehub.com/mark/3-25.htm

We must refuse all those pushing division, hate, anger, and racism on us. 

We must tell them to flat out that we will not accept their lies and dishonesty.

Today, let us embrace that camaraderie that we held back on September 11, 2001. Today, let us reignite that love and passion for America. 

Most of all, let us return to God and reignite a fire and love for Him again.

He is and will always be the foundation of America. 

America was built on Him and His strong foundation of truth, justice, love, honor, and bravery.

Yes, America is not perfect, but we search to be and do better tomorrow and all the tomorrows that follow with God’s grace. 

With God leading the way, America will never fail. She may falter, but America will rise again to shine brighter than ever. 

America will lead the way again. 

We may have fallen to one knee, but the sleeping giant that is America will rise again to be more formidable than ever. 

America, don’t give up on God. Keep praying, keep fasting, keep declaring God’s victory over this evil that is trying to overtake America. 

God bless America!

The fall of Afghanistan will not be the downfall of American bravery, courage, and resilience.

To all those who are laughing at America, know this, America is not done.

America has an unbreakable resilience.  

Our brave American’s don’t know what the word quit means.

We will make a way when everyone has counted us out.

Once again, evil has woken up an American sleeping giant.  

We have one thing in our corner that no one is thinking about. That is God and our faith.

See, America was founded on a God that never stops fighting for us.

Right now, at this very moment, brave American’s are planning for a victory so big that only God can bring it to pass.

Right now, we don’t know how it will happen, but we know it will happen.

Right now, our brave American veterans who have so courageously fought for us before are packing their bags, and with their faith that knows no bounds, they will be victorious!

In the name that is about all names, Jesus, our Savior, we call forth our victory.  

In the name of Jesus, our Savior, we call on Godly protection for every brave veteran making the journey to save our stranded American citizens and our allies.

In the name of Jesus, we call on every angel to stand in the divine protection of each brave veteran and enlisted service person.

God, You will make this impossible situation victorious for us. In the name of Jesus, we call forth this victory.  

God, let Your name and the name of our Savior fill the mouths of our veterans and enlisted soldiers.

God, listen and move when they call on Your name.

God, we will see and hear with our own eyes and ears about Your miraculous move to save America.

Forever, Your name will go down in history as the God whose hand moved in a powerful way to save America as Her citizens called out to You for divine assistance.

Father, make a way for every person responsible for this utter and disastrous failure to bring our citizens and troops homes safely, face justice. God, let the truth come out. God, bring forth whistleblowers so the validity of their disastrous decisions can be made known.

God, Your word says that secret things come to light (Luke 8:17).

God, let those responsible for this mess and their evil lies and deeds be known to all humanity!

God, we decree and declare this to be so in the mighty name of Jesus, our Savior.

God, restore America and Her greatness.

God, bless America once again. Father, I know you aren’t done with Her. I know She will shine brightly once again like never before.

God, finally, we lift all those 13 American servicemen and women who passed away this past week. 

God, be with their families, take every ounce of pain and grief away from them, and replace their sorrow with joy. God, let them know that their sacrifice is not and will never be in vain.

God, fill them with a peace that passes understanding. Holy Spirit, we call upon Your promise in Isiah 61:3. God, Your word says that You will give  3to console the mourners in Zion— to give them a crown of beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and a garment of praise for a spirit of despair. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.

God, let them know that the American people will never forget the bravery of their loved ones who served so courageously.  

Father, finally, we ask that You bring all those responsible for killing and maiming so many innocent people to justice. God let all the world know who they are. Father, they cannot hide from You. 

We ask these things in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

Loneliness – you are never home alone.

Loneliness, are you feeling it? Is it a constant companion? That empty hollow feeling compounded by fear. I understand. 

I, too, have felt it. That dark empty feeling that is trying to overtake every part of your thoughts and being. 

Whatever you do, you cannot let it win. Don’t stay and dwell in that empty dark place of hopelessness. 

It is dangerous there. Staying there in that utter place of despair makes it easier to succumb to the thoughts of suicide.

There is something that you need to understand. You are never alone, you have God, and you will ALWAYS have God!

He will never leave or abandon you (Heb 13:5) https://biblehub.com/hebrews/13-5.htm

Call out to Him.

I know many say that God isn’t real because you can’t see Him. You may not be able to see Him, but you can always feel His presence. 

His presence is real. How does it feel in the presence of God?

It is peaceful there. In God’s presence, there is His love. A love that we don’t know as a human. It is a love that penetrates every fiber of your being. His love is consuming, powerful, engulfing, and strong. His love is never-ending. In His presence, His love has no boundaries. 

It is a love that you will never feel from another human. It is a love that is indescribable. The love of God is something you can only experience while in His presence. 

How do you reach His presence? We can come into God’s presence via prayer and primarily through our worship.

Our worship has power! Our worship, spoken decrees and declarations of God’s words and His promises, and prayer are the most potent weapons we have as Christians. 

These things are the weapons we use to defeat all the fear, doubt, loneliness, emptiness, addictions, etc., we are facing or will ever face in our lives. 

Right now, more than ever before, we are facing so much doubt and fear. Now, right now, is the time to seek God. If you don’t know Him, now is the time to make Him the center of your life. 

Those in power are seeking to control every aspect of our lives. 

How do we combat that power? With the promises of God. 

What are the promises of God? His promises are written in His word, which is the Holy Bible. 

Make no mistakes about it. There is only one true living God. There is only one Savior, His son Jesus, and there is only one true living spirit of God. That is the Holy Spirit. These three are the Holy Trinity. 

Today is the perfect day to seek God, to accept Jesus as your personal Savior. 

I am not talking about a cookie-cutter relationship with God. I am not talking about saying repeat prayers to seek God’s forgiveness and love. 

That is man’s idea of how God works. With our God, there is no middle man. 

No person, saint, or the Virgin Mary, can forgive your sins. Please, no mistake, I am in no way bashing the mother of Jesus. I thank God for her and her bravery to become the mother of our living Savior, Jesus.

Only God, through our Savior Jesus, can forgive all our sins. 

How do you have a personal relationship with God? That is easy. Seek Him, and you will find Him (Matt7:7)https://www.biblehub.com/matthew/7-7.htm. Call out to Him, and He will answer you (Psl91:15) https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Psalms-91-15/.

God isn’t complicated. It is us as humans that complicate Him with our silly rules and our ideas.

How do you accept Jesus as your personal Savior? That is simple too. If you genuinely believe that Jesus is the one true son of God, that He rose from the dead after taking your place on the cross, then repeat this prayer:

Would you please pray with me? “Dear Father, please forgive me for my sins. God, please cleanse me with the precious blood of Jesus. I know Christ died on the cross for me. I know He was crucified, buried, and then arose on the third day. I know He ascended and now sits on the right hand of God. I receive Jesus as my Savior. Amen. 

Do you need more scriptures for sickness, addiction, depression, etc.? Please read this previous post:

If you prayed that prayer of Salvation above to receive Jesus as your Savior, you might be asking what is next. Well, if you can, find a good church that believes in the Holy Trinity, Jesus is our Savior, and God is the one true living God. Also, they must believe in the resurrection. And, they must believe that God’s word is the Holy Bible. 

If you are unable to find a church like that, keep trying and praying for it. You also need to delve into God’s word. Read it daily and as often as possible. 

Also, pray, seek God, and worship God. He is worthy to receive all our worship.

God bless each one of you.

God’s declaration of independence – America will remain the land of the free.

America is the home of the free because of the brave, courageous men and women of our military who choose to defend every citizen’s right to freedom.
The cost for this freedom isn’t free. There is a steep cost for those who choose to stand and defend it.
Our rights are given to each citizen by God, and they are defended and protected by men and women who boldly stand up and say, “yes, I will protect the land I love.”
Now at this very time, some in Congress are seeking to take our rights and freedoms away.
They seek to eliminate our right to bear arms and defend what is precious to us. Many of us have worked very hard to make strides to improve the lives of our families. Yet, our ability to defend these most precious things is being chipped away by those who swore or affirmed to protect those very rights.
Many of us, including myself, have been silenced by these officials with the help of those in big tech. With the help of those in big tech, our voices are being silenced. Our right to freely speak is also being chipped away.
These elected officials stood in front of all of us and placed their hand on God’s word as they promised to uphold, defend and honor our Constitution.
They swore or affirmed to God that they would fight to protect every American citizen and all of our rights. Yet, here they are going against that promise they made to God.
Any promise made to God is not one to enter into lightly. When we lay our hand on His word and speak, the words I affirm to uphold and protect, this is serious business. This promise is called a covenant made with God Almighty Himself.
God cannot break His promises, and any promise we make to Him is one we must hold up to.
We cannot easily break our promise to God. There are dire consequences when we go against promises we made to God.
Yet, these officials think nothing of breaking their solemn promises that they spoke to God to defend His nation and His people.
It seems that they have not paid those consequences, but that will not always be the case.
The goodness of God has allowed them time to repent and seek His forgiveness before His swift hand moves.
His mighty hand will move swiftly and quickly. His move is coming. Have no doubts about it.
Those that have doubled down on opposing Him will pay a very steep price.
America, God has heard us crying out for His justice. Don’t stop now.
Please do not give up now. Even though it appears that evil is about to win and overtake us, God will prevail.
Keep crying out to God to move and restore justice to us.
His move is coming, and it will take all our breath away. His justice will sweep through America and the world, carrying with it all those who laughed and mocked Him.
This independence day will take on a new meaning. It will always be remembered as the day God set us free from those who seek to destroy and keep us in the bondage of their greed and lust for evil.
Keep praying, keep fasting, keep seeking His might presence.
God bless each of you, and God bless America!
Happy Independence Day!

The Lord’s prayer – is He listening?

Does God hear our prayers? Is He listening? Does He want to help us?

Those are all valid questions. I think each one of us, at one point or another, has asked those very questions. 

Some have even asked God if He is real.

Well, I say ask Him. 

God created us. He knows we are curious and wish to understand things that seem more significant than us. 

God is bigger than anything or anyone person. 

God is so complex that we may never fully understand the scope of who God is, but don’t let that deter you.

God is also personable. He isn’t some significant scary holy entity that is unapproachable.

God is not a cookie-cutter God. He is not a one-size-fits-all deity. 

God knows we are curious. He created us to ask questions and to find answers. 

If you want to know if God is real, ask Him. Now how He reveals, that may no satisfy your curiosity. 

You might be thinking that you want God to perform some colossal miracle for you to believe fully.

We can ask but be cautious not to have such grand ideas of exactly how you want God to show you His answers. 

His answer may be so subtle that you miss it. 

One thing you should know about God, He never answers prayer the way you expect Him to. 

That is one thing that I admire about God. He always does something unexpectedly that makes me appreciate Him even more. 

So ask Him. He may answer, and He may not respond. 

God wants us to seek Him continuously. 

And please don’t think that if He doesn’t answer your question, this is the proof that He does not exist.

God wants and desires to be pursued. 

I know you might be thinking that this pursuit is too much to ask, but once you have a glimpse of God, you will know it was worth it, and you will hunger for more peeks. 

A personal relationship with God is beyond any small effort we put into it. 

We are living in scary times. There is not a better time to pursue God.

Here are some bible verses that will assist you in your pursuit of our one true living God:

Happy father’s day.

Who is a father? A father is a leader for his family. A father is a provider. A father is the protector of his family. A father is supportive, loving, caring, and a great listener.
A father shows each of his children what they are worth. He establishes their strength with his affirming words.
Can any man be a father? No, unfortunately not. Any many can be a dad, but becoming a father takes hard work.
A father sticks it out in the good and in the difficult times.
A father shows his children how to work hard for what they want.
A father instills endurance in his children. He teaches them how never to quit.
A father wants only the very best for his children.
A father showers his children with gifts while enforcing the rules to ensure his children become productive adults.
A father must discipline his children to ensure they understand there are consequences when we break the rules.
A father establishes strength in his sons and develops values in his daughters.
Yes, becoming a great father takes work, but it is well worth all the effort.
Today, I wish every father a Happy father’s day.
I pray God gives you the wisdom, direction, strength, and endurance to raise a wonderful family.
Remember always to lay a strong foundation of God for your child will always return to that foundation (Prov22:6)

God will continue to Trump the elites.

You may love him or despise him, but there is one undeniable thing, this man was chosen by God Himself to lead America back into Her road to recovery.

Even if you don’t believe in God, destinies, divine purpose, you have to admit that somehow President Trump managed to come out of every battle he went up against unscathed. I guess you will say that he is the luckiest man alive. 

I apologize, but no human is that lucky. What are the statistical odds that he would come out of every battle he faced untouched?

Despite what you think or feel about President Trump, he was chosen by God Himself for this very time. 

God needed every quality that He placed into President Trump’s DNA before the foundations of time to withstand every attack he would face. 

God used him to expose the lies, deception, and hypocrisy that thrives in our political class. 

President Trump was uncontrollable by the elite class. This fact might be the one thing that they hated most about him. 

He is honest, brutally at times, but that was a refreshing change for the American people.

America’s citizens are very wary of misleading politicians misdirecting and lying directly to their faces. 

President Trump cares deeply for America and Its citizens more than money, power, and notoriety.

Now you might wonder how God could use a man who may act ungodly at times. God always uses imperfect people to accomplish His will. 

Do I think that President was a man of God when we become President? I believe that he knew in God to a certain extent and knew how powerful prayer is. Also, I believe that while President Trump was in office, his faith and his relationship with God grew exponentially. I think he was a different man when he left office, as it applies to his faith. 

You might wonder why God would use such a man to accomplish His will. Again, God uses imperfect people who boldly stand up and say, “God, send me. I will go and fulfill Your will.” God’s word says that He searches to and fro looking for those who are devoted to Him (2 Chron 16:9

See, you have to understand something about God. He loves America. It is His country, after all, as She was founded on His principles by our founding fathers. America was dedicated to God by those who escaped religious persecution. 

And Yes, I know our founding fathers made mistakes. They were human and imperfect, but there is one sure thing, they loved God and honored Him by dedicating America to Him. They also took that honor and dedication to God and formed the words to our Constitution.

They saw all men, and God sees them, all equal. Yes, they had shortcomings and made mistakes, but God still used them in a historic way to accomplish His will for America.

Now how does all that relate to President Trump? Well, I believe with all my heart and soul that God will continue using President Trump. 

I see this quiet time for President Trump and a resting or replenishing time. Perhaps even a time for him to move even closer to God. 

God’s people have been suffering for some time now. Their rights have been chipped away slowly by those who do not believe in God, how great America is, and in our God-given rights. 

America’s citizens have been suffering under diminishing jobs, lower-paying jobs, higher and higher taxes, and the onslaught of attacks against the family, our churches, and our children. 

For some time now, God’s people have been crying out for God’s intervention. Somewhere, we allowed America to slip off of God’s path and onto man’s path. 

Somewhere we took a wrong turn. Now, so many are working to correct America’s course, but I am afraid that man has come to the end of their options. 

We waited too long to correct the course of America. We made too many wrong choices and left the great gift of America deteriorate to the point of no return. 

Now, it is up to God and God alone. Only He can fix this. 

Many are asking why He is taking so long. Many are asking where God is and what He is waiting for. 

God is waiting for all men to come to the end of their fight. Once that happens, each of us must turn it all over to Him. 

I believe we will see God’s hand move mightily across America to the right all the wrongs that have fallen onto the American people. 

Yes, we have all sinned and allowed evil to sweep across America, but we have a forgiving Father who will move on our behalf once all of us seek Him and repent. 

I see one man at the forefront of the move of God’s hand. Who is that man? God will use President Trump to restore glory to America and back to Him. 

God is not done using President Trump. Please know that this has nothing to do with elevating President Trump onto a pedestal or thinking he is our savior. 

There is only one true Savior, and His name is Jesus, the one true Son of God.

President Trump is the man God has chosen to use to restore His will at this very time in history. God must use a man to accomplish His will on earth. 

God has chosen to use President Trump to trump all the evil plans of the elites, socialists, Marxists, and atheists who took part in America’s destruction. God will expose each of these individuals who plotted, planned, and advanced the agenda of gaining all power for themselves. They strived to have a one-world order and to place themselves above God Himself. They sought to bring about the end times. 

God will then expose every demonic spirit that has taken hold of individuals, companies, countries, and governments. 

What can you do while you are waiting for God’s hand to move? Keep praying and seeking God. 

Do not give up hope. Do not let disbelief, sorrow, and unfaithfulness take hold of your heart and spirit. Most of all stay in God’s presence and worship Him for His victory.

Stay focused on God and keep praying for the restoration and turnaround of America. 

Our words have POWER to change the trajectory of our lives.

Not happy with the path your life is taking? Use your words to change your life’s trajectory.
Our words have power. We give life or death with our words (Prov18:21).
Stop speaking words with negative connotations assigned to them. Stop speaking words of destruction, hate, frustration, fear, death, and failure over your life and the lives of your family.
Start speaking positive words that give life, peace, abundance, victory, joy, happiness, protection, love, and unity.

Good Friday.

Can you imagine what Jesus felt this morning? I imagine He felt alone, abandoned, petrified, unsure, and wanted to back out of the events that would occur.
Remember, Jesus was human for a reason. He became a man to experience every emotion and feeling we as humans feel. God wanted firsthand knowledge of what it was to walk through a human life.
God also needed a man of flesh who was also God to walk through His life as the perfect unblemished, sinless God.
Jesus had to become the perfect sacrifice. A sacrifice for all humankind. A gift so perfect that no other person could or would have to walk His path again. Jesus was and will always be the perfect, sinless, Lamb of God. The blood shed at the cross is so powerful that NOTHING can defeat it. By the blood of Jesus, we are set free. By the strips He bore on His back, we are healed. Praise the holy Lamb of God!
No other person could have taken Jesus’ place. No other sacrifice could have the effect that Jesus’ sacrifice did.
God knows everything thing you face today. Nothing is too big for Him. He knows everything you feel because He experienced it via His Son Jesus.
Today is the perfect day to place God first in your life.
If you would like to accept Jesus as your personal Savior, pray this prayer with me. Perhaps you are backslidden. Today is also the perfect day to renew your walk with God. Pray with me:
God, I am a sinner. Forgive me for my sins. I believe Jesus died on the cross for me. I believe Jesus is your only begotten Son. I believe He died on the cross, and on the third day, He ascended to heaven and is forever seated at Your right hand. I accept Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. God, come into my life and use me for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.

Good Friday.

half-crown-thorns-purpleWP4.19.19lg

Today we celebrate our glorious Savior, Jesus. We celebrate the life He gave for every one of us.
He gave His life willingly for each one of us as He took our place on that retched cross.
He was sinless, yet He bore each one of our sins on that cross.
He defeated death, sickness, sin, and every burden at that cross. In doing so, we don’t have to carry the burdens our of sins.
He suffered through beatings, mockery, hate, thrones driven into His skull, and the agonizingly slow death of affixation.
I can never tell Him thank You enough! I am forever grateful.
He gave us freedom from the overwhelming price of our sins which is a price we can never pay. JESUS PAID IT ALL!
Today, if you do not know Jesus as your personal Savior, please repeat these words with me:
Jesus, I am a sinner, forgive me! Father, cleanse me with the precious blood of our Savior, Jesus. God, let me seek, know, and understand You like no one else does.
God throw each one of my sins in the sea of forgetfulness never to be remembered by You again.
I receive Jesus, as my personal Savior. Today, I am free from sin, death, and every burden.
God, bless me with a knowledge of who You are.
Thank You for loving me the way that you do, never giving up on me, and for pursuing me relentlessly.
In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
