America, this election is too important to sit this one out.

Right now, two candidates are running for the top job of this country—two men who want to be president of America.
They are running two entirely different platforms.
One wants to protect America, Her citizens, their American dreams, and their jobs. This man believes in American freedoms and strongly supports our troops who fight to keep all our freedoms in place.
This same man is running on the platform of protecting life. To him, life, too, is precious. He is pro-life. Perhaps the strongest pro-life candidate to run for the Office of the President. This man supports the oil and fracking industry that has allowed America to become non-dependent on foreign oil. In the past, America was susceptible to foreign countries supply of oil. Dependency on foreign oil has, in the past, lead to excessively high gas prices and shortages. America, we don’t want to be under the thumb of any foreign power for any reason.
This man also believes in small government interference in the lives of everyday American lives. He also believes and protects the religious freedoms of American citizens.
The other man will more than likely ship our jobs overseas as he has done in the past. This man does not believe in the American dream. He proposes a massive hike in taxes for the American middle class.
This man will sit back and allow those in his party and his administration to change America vastly. That change will turn us from a democracy into a socialist county.
Those in his party has promised free vacations, free college, free healthcare for all, Medicare for all, free daycare, etc.
Well, here is something you should know. NOTHING is free. Someone has to pay for it, and I believe that will be the middle class.
This man has also previously threatened to go against our rights as Americans and confiscate guns from law-abiding citizens.
His administration is also a threat to our freedom of speech.
This same man is under suspicion of corruption for past business deals with foreign countries. His son is under FBI investigation for money laundering, which would also somehow touch this man’s past business dealings.
This second man has also said that he would move America from oil and fracking.
That will lead to millions of good-paying jobs being taken from American families in several states.
This second candidate runs as a Democrat, but he has given access to his administration and will choose individuals with radical beliefs access to both himself and his administration.
His Vice President choice has been touted as the most liberal person in our Senate. That is some title to hold!
As I mentioned, these are vast differences between the two choices, but the one that troubles me as a Christian is the choice in life or death of an innocent baby.
As a Christian, this is a game-changer against candidate number two. Our God’s word tells us that to Him, every life is precious. He also tells us that every single one of us is planned for by Him.
How can we, as humans, destroy an innocent life that was planned for by Almighty God Himself?
How can we override God’s decision for a baby to live when He Himself has deemed that life necessary and planned for?
In doing so, aren’t we trying to “play God” by ending this particular life?
And we cannot forget about the price for our sins. Please make no mistake about it. There is always a price for the sins we commit as a person, as a family, community, and nation.
America, I believe we are praying a price that we cannot afford for all the innocent lives that have been murdered via abortions in America.
We must repent! We have sinned against God! Our sins have a price that is too much for us to repay.
This is where our Savior’s blood comes in, for Holy is the Lamb of God who was slain for each one of us.
Thank you, God, for Your mercy and grace.
America, we must repent, ask for God’s forgiveness for our sins as a nation, and ask Him to heal our land.
We are at a critical point in America. Prayer, seeking God, asking for His forgiveness is something that needs to be done now.
Pray about who you should vote for in the next coming days. This presidential election is a choice for the soul of America.

America, this election represents the fight for the soul of our country.

America, I have said this many times, and today, I am repeating this. 

America, we are in a spiritual battle for the soul of America. This choice includes the choice of our leaders in our upcoming election. One candidate is pro-life, and one candidate is pro-choice. 

We have those fighting for life, liberty, and the American way of life.  

We also have those fighting for the freedom to choose death for an unborn innocent baby, socialism, and the radical change of America into a country that will be astounding for those in power and utterly devesting for those who are not. 

America, we have allowed the murder of innocent babies for decades now. Since 1973, approximately 61 million babies have been killed in the United States. 

Planned Parenthood performs 947 abortions every day.

There were 20 million African-American babies killed via Planned Parenthood. 79% of their facilities are located within walking distance of black and brown communities. 

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/op-eds/since-roe-abortion-has-killed-more-black-babies-than-the-entire-black-population-of-the-u-s-in-1960

America, abortion is the genocide of the African American population in the U.S. Genocide is not coming from the police’s hands. That is an inaccurate statement. 

Despite what you think, abortion is the murder of an innocent baby. Many do not feel this way, but they will see that statement is very accurate. When they face God in judgment, as we all will, they will find out that God saw this as the murder of a precious baby’s life. 

God holds all life as precious and valuable. Life is a precious gift from God Himself (Psalms139:14).

God tells us thou shall not murder. It is one of His ten commandments (Exodus 20:13). Yet, we sit back and allow the murder of so many innocent babies. 

In His word, God Himself says that the innocent bloodshed of life is one of the six things that God dislikes the most (Prov 6:16-19).

God’s words tell us the wages for our sins is death. I can’t even begin to imagine what the wages are for all the innocent blood we have allowed to be shed. God, help us!

But our God is just and fair! He will hold those accountable for this vile practice! This accountability includes those of us who sat by and allowed this atrocity to continue without saying a word. 

Do not kid yourself. There is a price for us to pay for allowing these murders to continue. Every choice for allowing sin has consequences for us.  

For one, I will now be one of those who sit back and say and do nothing while this practice continues to be allowed. Also, I will not be one who sits back and says nothing while our taxpayer dollars go to fund Planned Parenthood’s murder of innocent babies. 

Thank God for His never-ending forgiveness!

You may be asking what you can do to stop this. You might even be thinking that you are just one person, and your voice doesn’t matter. It does matter! It matters to this cause, and most of all, it matters to God Himself!

What can you do about this? First and foremost, you must seek God’s forgiveness. If you are genuinely seeking forgiveness, you will be forgiven by God.

Second, you must write, call, or email your Senator, your State Representative, and the White House too. 

Please tell them to stop abortion in America. Please ask them to stop using our American taxes to fund these vile clinics and the murders of innocent lives. And most of all, you must pray for God to intervene.

You can’t stop after one letter, email, or even one call. This abortion battle is going to be an ongoing battle. 

America, we are in the spiritual battle for the soul of our country. It is time to pick aside. It is time to fight and pray like never before. When I say fight, I do not mean physical fighting or fist fighting. I mean fighting on our knees via our prayers. After all, prayers are what we use as a weapon of warfare. 

Third, we must also pray for America’s forgiveness and every person involved in these murders, whether indirectly or directly. 

Make no mistake about it, each one of us will have to answer to God for choosing leaders who allowed abortions to continue. The choice of a leader who supports abortions is the same as a choice of you saying, “yes, please continue these grisly murders.” Our vote in God’s eyes is our voice in either support or non-support of this practice. 

Also, please note that I am a messenger of God’s word. If you find offense to what is being said here then You have offense of God’s word because that is what is being discussed here. This is the word of God and not of myself.

In fact, I am not asking you to believe me. If you support pro-choice, here is a little task for you. Pray, ask God to reveal the truth to you for your own knowledge. Ask God to open your eyes and ears and let His truth be known. Ask Him if abortion is murder. If you really seek the truth, then He will reveal it to you. God’s word says “ask and you shall receive, knock and the door will be opened (Luke11:9).

But know this, once you read this and know the truth, you are responsible to God for it.

Lets pray together: God, please forgive each of us for allowing these murders of babies in America and for allowing these clinics’ ghoulish acts to sell the baby parts for profit.

God, let us seek your face, turn from our wicked ways, pray, so You can heal our land, Father. 

God, we need you now more than ever. God, let America return to You. Father, thank You for Your eternal forgiveness. 

God forgive America for the choices we have made in the past. God, our intentions to continue to sin against You have allowed doors to open that we are not equipped to handle. 

Father, our choices to allow sin has brought hate, division, bitterness, resentment, murders of innocent Americans in our streets, destruction, and the ruin of many American families, business owners, and our economy. 

God, our own economy is weak and teetering on the destruction. God, help us! 

God, our sins have allowed the release of a vile virus. This virus has taken the lives of many people around the world. God, forgive us!  

God, we look to You to end this virus once and for all. We know You are the only one with the answer to this virus. God, give man the solution to end this virus today, whether in a therapeutic, a vaccine, or a medication. God, we know that You provide all knowledge. We receive by faith the answer to end this virus today. 

God, restore our world’s economies. God, we give you all the praise! 

God, end this hate and division in America. God, we know Your word says that a house divided cannot stand(Mark 3:25).

God, heal our nation of this division, hate, discrimination, and racism. 

Father, we ask the candidates that You want to fill the positions of leadership take office. Father, let Your will be done.

God, we love You, and we seek Your wisdom now with the issue of abortion. God, give us Your boldness and diligence to continue to fight this vile issue. 

God, only You can change the hearts and minds of man. God, open the eyes and let Your truth be revealed to those who support pro-life.

God, let us not go weary in doing good. 

We ask all these things in the precious name of our Savior, Jesus. Amen.

God is faithful verses to pray through this deadly virus.

coronavirus_2.29.20WP

There seem to be more and more things to be afraid of nowadays. There is global warming, overpopulation, food shortages, viruses, crops infected with deadly diseases, etc. Now we have added Coronavirus to the mix.
Sometimes it is easy to become overwhelmed with fear and anxiety, but we have to remember God is still in charge.
There is no need to be fearful because God is aware of what is going on. He holds tomorrow in His hands.
When we are fearful or filled with anxiety, we are telling God that we have more belief in our fear than in Him. We are saying to God that He isn’t God in our life. We are saying to God that fear and anxiety are a god in our lives.
We are letting fear and anxiety control us when we should be in control and use our worship to drive out each feeling of fear and anxiety.
We should be worshipping, giving Him thanks, and telling Him how grateful we are that we are healthy, that no virus will destroy us, no sickness will cause us death, that we will LIVE and NOT die from any disease or illness.
We should be saying to God how amazing He is because He protects the righteous.
Now right about here, you might be thinking about that lie you told yesterday, or about the money, you stole last week, or about the drugs you consumed the previous month. Perhaps about the incident of the liquor, you drank last night, or even about that sexual liaison you had last night with someone you are not married to.
Right about now, you might be thinking, “how can God protect me? I am not the righteousness of God”. Well, I have great news for you. We are all sinners! We have all sinned and continue to sin every day. None of us are nor will ever be perfect.
But, there is one who is perfect, and His name is Jesus. He died on the cross for each of us.
Yes, none of us are indeed righteous, BUT the blood of Jesus makes us the righteousness of God!!!!
How is that for great news???
To lay claim to the incredible benefit, you must seek out God and ask Jesus to become your personal Savior.
You might say that this is unfair. That God is forcing you to accept Christ to receive His protection, but the truth is that He isn’t forcing you.
You don’t have to seek God out, seek Jesus, and then ask Jesus to become your personal Savior.
You don’t have to choose to do this. God blessed each of us with free will. We have the intention to say, “no, thank you” when it comes to accepting Christ as your personal Savior.
But if there were a day or time to accept Jesus as your Savior, wouldn’t today be that day? The days we are living in are full of uncertainty. If there were ever a time to seek God out, this would be it.
If you think that things will get better and turn around, they probably will, but what happens when the next virus shows up? There will be more deadly viruses with more deadly outcomes.
Now you might even think that God won’t protect you. Again, totally your choice to believe that. God will not force Himself on you. We always have free will to say ‘No” to Him.
Some of you might even think that God does not exist. You may say that if God existed, why would He allow this virus to become so deadly and kill so many people? Here is the truth. God is not punishing us! God does not like to see us suffer! God loves us with a love that we cannot even begin to fathom.
We, as humans, have disobeyed God’s word and His commandments. All of us living and not disobeyed God at some point. When we disobey God, we open the door for the devil to wreck havoc in all our lives. We have allowed through our disobedience, open doors for the devil to enter, bring all his lies, his death, and his destruction.
What is our recourse? It is forgiveness, of course. Each of us must seek forgiveness from God daily, seek out our Savior Jesus, pray for divine protection, worship, and seek God’s face daily.
Now for those who want to seek God and Jesus as your Savior, please pray this prayer with me:

Heavenly Father I believe that Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God came to earth to be the Savior of the world, and that by His death on the cross, He paid the price for the sin of the world, so that whosoever believes on Him, would not perish, but have everlasting life.

Thank You for Jesus and thank You for my free gift of Salvation. Thank You that Jesus took my place on the cross.  Thank You that by believing in His name, I am forgiven of my sins and brought into fellowship with my heavenly Father.

Lord, I turn from all my prideful sins and from everything that is dishonoring to Your name.  I pray that I would grow in grace, in a knowledge of Jesus, until I come to a spiritual maturity.

Thank You Father for Your wonderful gift of salvation and thank You that by believing I am now Your child – in Jesus name I pray,

Amen
There, it is just that simple! You have now accepted Jesus as your personal Savior. Now, seek God, His word, pray, find a tremendous bible-based church that believes in the Holy Trinity, and seek out God’s protection.
Here are some prayers to pray for the protection of your family, yourself, etc.:
https://connectusfund.org/7-spiritual-warfare-prayers-for-protection

Also, do not forget about the armor of God. It is a powerful tool of God that we can use and apply every day to ourselves and each one of our family members.
Please find that prayer here:
https://www.crosswalk.com/devotionals/your-daily-prayer/a-prayer-to-put-on-the-armor-of-god-your-daily-prayer-october-17-2016.html

Now, will you pray with me for those who have lost family members to this terrible virus?
God, we come in agreement. Help each person who is suffering from the loss of a loved one from this deadly Coronavirus. We lift them to You. We ask You to heal their hearts. We ask that their sorrows come to an end, and we ask that they seek You.
Holy Spirit, we call on you now to comfort them. We ask the Holy Spirit that you replace their garment of sorrow with the garment of joy and peace. We ask that their hearts will turn to God. We ask for their suffering to end now. We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

America’s comeback – returning from the edge of destruction.

America, we have been asleep at the wheel for a long time.
We are waking up into what we believe was a horrible dream, but it is now our reality.
We put our lives on autopilot. We gave control of our final destination to other people.
We fully trusted what we were being told. We didn’t verify. We didn’t ask questions. We just went along quietly as others drove America into the ditch.
We allowed ourselves to be lied to. We let our American dreams be turned into a nightmare.
We let others go out and declare to the world that America was a racist country full of people who’s sins were unforgivable.
We allowed our leaders to turn our inner cities into war zones.
We allowed those same leaders to turn those cities into places that no human should have to live in.
We allowed those leaders to make those who were in poverty before even more impoverished.
We allowed those same leaders to enrich themselves as those in poverty turned poorer.
We allowed those same leaders to stop teaching our children in these large cities. We sat back as watched as our children did not even gain a primary education.
We allowed those same leaders to take away the right of school choice.
We allowed those same leaders to systematically turn large cities into outdoor homeless encampments.
We allowed those same leaders to kill off our population by flooding our streets with potent, highly addictive, and powerful illegal drugs.
We allowed those same leaders to give away our jobs and turn small towns into ghost towns.
We allowed prayer and the talk about God to be removed from our schools. Now, our children live in fear of school shootings.
We allowed political correctness to take over, and it made us conscientious of everything we were allowed to say. This political correctness chipped away our precious freedom of speech.
We allowed those same leaders to tell us that boys who “identified’ as girls could compete against our daughter’s in their sports events.
They also told us that those same “girls” could shower and use the same restrooms with our daughters. We were told that if we didn’t agree that we ourselves were racists.
We allowed our children to be indoctrinated in our colleges. We allowed these colleges to hire professors who hate America. We let their poisoned minds teach our children, thus filling their minds and hearts with that same poison and hate.
We allowed big corporations to grow into monopolies, thus driving small businesses into bankruptcies.
We voted in leaders who do not believe in criminal justice. These leaders see our justice system as racist.
Thus, they allow those guilty of serious crimes to roam the streets to create more victims.
We allowed these same leaders to leave our border unsecured. Thus we have now imported dangerous criminals from so many other countries.
We have allowed those leaders to leave our veterans out in the cold. These brave men and women fought for our nation, Her people, and Her freedoms.
We allowed so many of them to suffer.
We have allowed our military men and women to be wounded, maimed, and killed for no reason.
Then if that wasn’t enough, we allowed them to suffer in silence with PTSD once they returned home.
We have allowed those same leaders to keep us in endless wars. We have wasted so much money on wars that we should not be involved in.
On and one it goes. America, when is enough going to be enough?
When will we demand that those responsible for the near destruction of America have to be held accountable?
Yet, what do we do? We continue to re-elect the same politicians into office. They blatantly lie to our face, and we keep rewarding their lies by re-electing them. It is time to vote them out of office!
Now, we allowed radicals to be voted into office.
We are blessed to live in a democracy where we have the incredible gift of choosing our leaders, yet many of us never even bother to vote.
Now, we have voted into office those who do not even try to hold those guilty of crimes accountable.
We have allowed “no cash bail” to be implemented, allowing a revolving door for violent criminals.
America, we have allowed our wages to be driven down by not demanding that the entry of low skilled workers from other countries be held to a limit.
We allowed these leaders to place abortion clinics in our brown and black communities. We stood silent as these “clinics,” which are disguised as places for “women’s health,” murder innocent babies of color. If that wasn’t bad enough, we said nothing as they used our money, in the form of taxes, to commit these murders.
Right at this moment, many of these leaders will not allow American’s to go back to work, to reopen their small businesses, to get back to school, and to start to get back to our everyday lives.
They have used their power to impose draconian lock-downs all in the efforts of making our economy fail! Why do they want our economy to fail? So that they will gain more power!
We have been lied to about how many American’s truly have passed away from this deadly virus. Again, inflating this number to gain more power, and to keep us in ultimate fear in order to control us.
Fearful people are so easy to control. They know this and are using it to the fullest extent!
Now, we have allowed our leaders to drive American race relations back to pre-1960 levels. Now racism is alive, thriving, and now on steroids.
We sit back and say nothing as they spoon-fed our youth with hate, blame, excuses, and racism.
We have allowed our leaders to tell us that people should be judged by their skin color and not their character.
First of all, who are we to judge, and second of all, no one should be elevated or held back because of their skin color.
We have allowed these same leaders to tell Caucasian Americans that they should be ashamed of their skin color and are guilty for all the racism in America from the beginning of Her conception.
We have allowed these same leaders to tell those Americans of color that Caucasians are the sole reason they can’t get ahead in life.
The ironic part of this all is that some of those leaders who are bringing shame to Caucasians are Americans of color who somehow managed to rise to leadership positions in a country full of racist.
How can so much “systemic racism” exist in America when America voted in Barack Obama for our President, twice? The answer is that it DOES not exist. It is made up, fabricated, and dishonest! All this dishonesty to keep America divided!
We have allowed these same leaders to lie to us over and over again.
They lied to tell us when they said they represented the working men and women of America. All the while, they were hiding a deep, dark secret. This secret is so vile that they would produce lies so audacious to cover up their secret hate of minorities.
As we gave into them over and over again, their hunger for power grew and grew. Now, it is a greedy monster.
Now, they will lie, kill, blame, and destroy to gain all power and control.
The lies they spew are so lethal that they don’t care who is destroyed in gaining all power and control over us.
America, it is time to pull over, grab a double-espresso, take a walk around the car, open all the windows all the way, and put the radio full-blast.
Wake up, America! We have allowed our vehicle to be taken down a road of destruction.
It is time to pull a U-turn and get back onto the road of recovery.
It is time to ask questions, demand answers, and demand that our nation be returned into the hands of “we the people.”
First and foremost, we are a nation under God, founded by God and blessed by God.
Second, no person should be judged by anyone other than God.
Thirdly, no person should be given favor or held back due to the color of their skin.
Fourth, God created us in His image. The original creator, God, wonderfully made each of us. God does not make mistakes. No person should be ashamed of their skin color, as this is how God created them.
Fifth, God does not operate in shame, guilt, hate, racism, or lies.
So if He does not operate in shame, how can we be ashamed by our skin color? Stand proudly in who God made you to be.
Sixth, we are all forgivable by God. No man can forgive our sins! We should never seek to be forgiven by a human. No person other than Jesus died for our sins. Therefore, only God, His father, can forgive our sins via Jesus.
These are trying times we are in now. Our answer is not to give up on God. He has not and will not give up on us.
We must press into Him even more. We must pursue Him with a hungry heart.
We must pray harder and more fervently than ever. America is in a spiritual battle.
If you are fearful, seek God. You are precious to Him, and He desires to protect that which is precious and unique to Him.
If you feel your faith failing, ask God to restore it. Let thankfulness and gratefulness lead the way to open your eyes to see all the goodness of God.
Hold on! Remember, it is always darkest right before the light breaks through.

God, in the face of this virus, let us use Your word as our weapon.

 

treeAndSunset_pixaby4.22.20

God’s word is not some letters, paragraphs, and punctuation printed on paper. 

God’s word is our weapon!

Just as our heavenly Father speaks and creates, we can speak things into existence (that are according to God’s will) using God’s word.

The bible is the spoken word of God given to man to write down. 

The bible is not an ordinary book. No other book can be used as a weapon that can defeat poverty, sickness, depression, addictions, etc. 

God’s word, used regularly, can defeat the enemy every single time.  

There are no if, and, or butts on whether God’s work will work. It is a sure thing!  

God’s word is never faltering, never failing, and will never return void to God. 

God’s word must be fulfilled on this earth! 

It will never lose its power! It is unchangeable! His word is so powerful that even God cannot change or alter it. Even God must abide by His word.

The bible says that heaven and earth will pass away, but the word of God will endure forever(Matt24:34).

Wow, that is incredible. Even when the heavens and the earth are gone, God’s word will still hold its’s power to transform.

We can use God’s word and faith to move our mountains. 

What are our mountains? Well, they can be anything standing in our way of reaching a new level in God. It can be a deadly virus, debt, sickness, addictions, a broken family, finances, lack of faith, hate, bitterness, revenge, bigotry, etc.

Anything we face in life that is not of God, we can apply His word to transform that situation. 

Now please understand, this does not mean that we can use the word one time and expect miraculous things to happen. 

Yes, God is the God of miracles, but we have to do our part too. We have to start seeing things as God sees them, praying without giving up, declaring God’s word over our situations, and constant worship!

We have to keep speaking God’s word over our situations until we see God’s promises come to fruition.

We cannot pray once, then be done. We must pray, worship, and speak God’s word constantly. 

We must pray without ceasing! God’s word says that  The prayer of a righteous man has great power to prevail (James5:16).

Pursuing God this way means we have to break out of our results-in-an-instant mentality! 

Don’t worry. It may start as something that seems like a lot of work, but when you see how God moves, you will happily adopt this as your new way to solve the problems in your life.

As things progress and you see significant changes in your life, your faith will move to higher levels. 

As you move to higher levels, you will notice an increase in your knowledge of God. He will start to reveal Himself, and you will get glimpses of how astonishing our God truly is. 

Once that happens, you will never want to be out of His presence. There is no other place like it! 

Even through a deadly virus, God is still faithful!

Thank You Father for Your wonderful gift of salvation and thank You that by believing I am now Your child – in Jesus name I pray,

Amen

Holy Spirit, we call on you now to comfort them. We ask the Holy Spirit that you replace their garment of sorrow with the garment of joy and peace. We ask that their hearts will turn to God. We ask for their suffering to end now. We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.

 

The words you speak today will become your reality tomorrow.

Words are spoken by us every single day of our lives, but do we stop and think of what we are saying with those words?
Many of us speak words without thinking twice about the weight of those words.
We speak frivolous, mean, hateful, words, or say negative things about ourselves and our family without thinking twice.
When a friend comes up to us to tell us that they are feeling well, we then proceed to speak death and destruction over them.
Instead of speaking life and telling them we will pray for them, we say things like, “wow, I bet you have diabetes.”
With those small five words, you have just spoken disease and destruction over that person.
Now, will they automatically get diabetes? Of course, they won’t, but with your spoken words, you have managed to open a door of possibility for them to become diabetic.
See your spoken words over them of disease, opens a door in their mind. It causes their mind to consider this possibility. They may mull it over in their mind over and over again. Then, they might even agree with you in their thoughts. Eventually, that leads to them saying our loud with their own words this sentence, “I think I am diabetic.”
Boom! There it is! Power is given to disease for it to come to fruition in this person’s body.
Our words have power. We have to place a filter on our thoughts and words.
We have to think of the ramifications of each spoken words that come from our lips.
Another example of how powerful our words can be is when a frustrated mom tells her son, who has gotten involved with drugs, that he will become just like his dad.
She expands her verbal abuse by saying that her son’s dad died of a drug overdose and that her son will follow suit.
Boom! This mother just pronounced death over her son! With mere words, this mother planted the idea and thoughts in her son’s mind that he would die of an overdose just like his “no-good” father.
Well, the son thinks this has to be true because his mother said so. So that son decides that there is no reason to pursue rehab or to seek help with his addiction. According to his mother, his future is set with death.
These words stick in the mind of the son, and he thinks of it constantly. Then one day, he tells his friend that he will die soon of an overdose just like his dad.
There it is, words were spoken that will bring forth the death of this young man.
When he passes away, will the mom ever know it was her words that started this downward spiral of her son?
She may never realize that her words have power and that the words she chose to speak over her son are words that he could never recover from.
Situations like these go on steadily in each one of our lives. We are confronted with situations, and we have to choose what to say. We can no longer frivolously use words.
Words have power, and they can bring forth life or death. So think which words you should use before they come out of your mouth.
Most of us have heard the phrase “think before you speak.” This phrase is a perfect example of what we are discussing right now.
Think of the words you will speak. Do those words bring life or death, do they promote positive or negative emotions? Do they promote health, joy, happiness, and a positive mind frame? Or do those words cause hurt, pain, tears, confusion, fear, and a harmful or hurtful mind frame?
Sit back and examine the words you have spoken over the past week. What did those words promote? Examine your life and the life of your loved ones.
Is there disease, poverty, anger, frustration, divorce, drugs, addictions, and depression present? If there is, then it seems the words spoken by yourself and your family members are not promoting life.
To restore God’s will for our lives, we have to become like Him. Now that is not to say that we will be perfect like Him because we will never achieve this. God and our Savior, Jesus, are the only ones who will be perfect, but our goal is to try to become more and more like them every day.
Our words have to reflect God’s will and the things that He desires for us. He wants happiness, joy, abundance, provision, and a healthy and blessed life for each of us.
God is a God of order. Blessings cannot flood your life if you continuously speak hurtful and destructive words.
Now, most of us were not taught that we have to choose our words carefully. A lot of us were taught to speak our minds and not to keep things bundled up inside of us.
Yes, we must speak up for ourselves but do so with carefully chosen words. Think of what you are saying before the words escape your mouth. Once spoken, words cannot be taken back.
Will it be easy to change our thoughts and words? Can we do this by ourselves? The answer is no. We cannot do this by ourselves, and we have to seek God’s help via the holy spirit. We must pray, repent, and always ask for God’s help.
Will it change immediately? I am not sure. It might or it might not. The thing to remember is not to give up. Don’t get frustrated. If you make a mistake, seek forgiveness, and keep praying for God to help you.
One day, you will find yourself thinking about the consequences of each word before you speak it. It will become a simple task.
Most of all, your life will be transformed. That within itself is priceless and worth all the effort.

Seek God’s perfect 2020 vision.

word-2020-written-on-highwayWP12.29.19.jpg

Soon, we will be facing a new year. How did 2019 stack up for you? Did you accomplish all the things you set out to do?
If you didn’t, don’t get discouraged. God is the God of many chances. He knows us, He sees our efforts, and He knew what we would finish before we even started.
He knows and sees all because He is omnipresent.
If 2019 was the year you meant to finish that book, create that paining, start that business, or design that new dress, etc., and you didn’t quite complete those tasks, don’t be so hard on yourself.
God knows. He knows you gave your best effort. Even if your efforts fell short of what you expected of yourself, it’s alright.
If you did fall short, get up, dust yourself off, and get ready for a new beginning. Seek forgiveness from God, as His mercy flows in abundance, and start over in 2020. Each new year allows us to start over again, but one thing we have to do is to work hard this year to finish what God told you to start.
I am sure you have noticed, but this year flew by. It practically disappeared right before our eyes.
I heard so many people tell me how this year went faster than the years before. I think this will be the theme for every year to come. Time will continue to disappear right before our eyes. I genuinely believe that time is going faster and faster as we are in the final days. Now when I said last days, I have no idea if that is next week, next month, next year, or in the next five years. No man knows the end of days. Only God knows that, but I do believe we are rushing towards that day faster and faster.
Perhaps the time is rushing by as God has become so impatient with man’s wrongdoing. Maybe it is the cries of His people who or tormented, shamed, mocked, etc., that has caused God to increase how quickly passes by. Perhaps God is unhappy and very upset with the ways of man.
Do you remember what God did when He found humanity to be so full of sin? Once, when He was upset with the ways of humankind, He flooded the whole earth. All humanity, except for one single family, was taken out by God. Then, He destroyed an entire city as He found humankind in that city were full of sin and wickedness.
Can God do that again? No one truly knows, but the one thing He will not and cannot do is flood the earth again. God promised that to humanity. He gave us a symbol of His promise, which is the rainbow.
So with 2020 is right around the corner, try to use this time between now and then to regroup, rethink, reorganize, reconfigure, re-strategize, pray, and refocus.
This coming new year will be unique, for it is the year 2020. Numbers always mean important things to God, and I am not talking about numerology. Numerology is man’s and the enemy’s perversion of God’s divine meaning with numbers.
Whatever you do, find out what 2020 means to God. Since this year is marked for something incredible, it calls for an extraordinary vision.
Make this coming new the year you have God’s perfect 2020 vision. Not mans’ vision, and not your vision, but seek out His Godly 2020 perfect vision.
In this coming year, make sure you have God’s 2020 vision for your life and goals. Not mans’ vision, and not your vision, but seek out His Godly 2020 perfect vision.

What wages have you earned?

child-god-writtenWP5.25.19

Did you know that you have unclaimed wages? Those unclaimed wages will catch up to you eventually. What price will you pay to claim those wages?
Each one of us has 2 choices when it comes to claiming these wages.
Our wages are either life or death.
That is what God’s word tells us. He says the wages of our sins is death.
Was he saying that because we sin, we must die? No, of course not. There are certain things that we all must do. We all must be born, and we all will die. Thou no man knows how or when that death will come.
It is the choice we make during our lives to choose either God or the enemy is where we make our decision to have our wages pay for life or death.
Even though He knew our destiny without Him was death and destruction. He could not stand by and allow us to live apart from Him. He loves us too much to stand by and watch us perish. Even though we didn’t deserve it, He sent us a rescue vessel from our sin.
Because God loves you so much, He chose to give His son, Jesus, to come and take your place on the cross.
Our Savior, Jesus, took every sin you will ever commit to the cross. He defeated death itself as a man so that each one of us could live eternally with God.
Jesus saved the world from its path of absolute destruction. He stepped in and disrupted our way to hell.
Jesus rebuilt the bridge to God. He alone defeated Satan. His sacrifice is one that can never be repaid and one we can’t ever repay. It is utterly priceless!
It is a priceless gift that you didn’t earn and can’t pay for.
No other person, false deity, or saint could make the same sacrifice with the same outcome.
None of them will ever pay the price for sin in full. No other god willingly gave their only son to die on a cross for our sins.
No saint or false deity can every give you the priceless gift that our Savior gave you.
Do not be fooled by all the imitators. No one can be or will ever be like the one true God and our Savior, Jesus.
As we approach Christmas, begin to assess your life and the wages you have earned.
Are they wages or life or death?
As I mentioned before, no person is promised a tomorrow, and each one of us will die at some point.
Before you run out of time, take this time of the year to reassess where you will spend your eternal life.
Me, I choose life. I prefer to live for God today and forever.

You can’t fool God!

faith-rusty-metalWP9.14.19.jpg

Don’t think you can hide your true heart from God. He sees and knows all.
Some of us put up a façade to trick others into seeing what we what them to see.
We hide our addictions, our pain, our secrets, our past, our scars, our depression, our whole life behind those facades.
We pretend we are something that we are not.
We fight so hard to hide our real selves. We lie, we cheat, we deflect, we steal, and hurt others to conceal the truth of who we are from getting out.
We trick our own minds into believing the lies we tell to others. Then the ultimate betrayal to ourselves is when buying the façade we put up as the real truth. We brainwash ourselves to see our lies as the truth.
We have hidden secrets. We think that if we don’t talk about them or acknowledge them that they won’t be exposed.
We fight tooth and nail to keep our secrets hidden.
Sometimes we sweep them under the rug or don’t ever mention them. We think maybe if we never speak about those secrets that they aren’t what really happened.
If you have done this, you don’t have to be ashamed of your past. God loves you no matter what you have done and where you came from.
God knows the real you. You can’t hide the truth from God. But here is the good news for you. No matter what you have done, God loves you, anyway.
But here is the great news. God loves you, regardless of your past. He allows you to start over. God brings a reset in your life. He is the fresh start you have been looking for.
God is all-forgiving. His love is unconditional, never-failing, never-ending, all-consuming, and He will never judge or shame you. He will never stop loving you, regardless of what you have done.

Now, that is the ultimate unconditional true love!
