Good Good Father

1 Corinthians 11:32 KJV

But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

Seeking The One Who Created Us

Psalm 42:1-11 KJV

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

[2] My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

[3] My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?

[4] When I remember these things , I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.

[5] Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

[6] O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.

[7] Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

[8] Yet the Lord will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.

[9] I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?

[10] As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?

[11] Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

A GREAT Revival is Coming to America 2017-18 (are you in?)

I have watched this young man’s take on things going on around us off and on over the years. Sometimes in the past he would get a little too radical for me and I would not watch his short clips. Then suddenly he would show up in my feed again. So, yes, off and on watched but always way more secular perspective.

Over the last several months I had begin to catch a video here and there and often (on the occasions I did watch), I began to notice a difference in the way he spoke about things. Subtle changes. He started slowly introducing God without being over the top. I began to find it interesting and began to wonder if he was for real. Some comments people would tell him to keep it going, finish telling the truth. Tell people about Jesus Christ, how to take steps to get saved. Slowly he would get a little bolder. Now, with the following he has he received flack from a lot of folks who didn’t want to hear even the smallest things. He began to do videos starting off with “This will be a talk about getting your life right and might contain scriptures so if it is not your thing then don’t watch this. I will do a news update later”.

I just smile when I can see someone that the Lord God is using for His good purpose! Someone that many wouldn’t have expected. He is the Potter and we are the clay…mold us and make us what You may! Thank You Jesus for all You have done and for all that You will continue to do!

California Fires Seem Odd

I am no expert. I have seen many asking questions concerning this. A brother in Christ had this uploaded on his channel. I am not saying it is not all normal but it seems off to many people and it is worth considering.

“This is NOT NORMAL Brothers and Sisters… Accept Jesus NOW!”

Books of 1 Kings & 2 Kings & America’s Presidents – Template?

So, it is so amazing when someone can point out things in the Old Testament and show you convincing correlation to present days.  You listen to similarities of Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat and of Jezebel (over the years).  You certainly do not have to agree but I found it to be incredibly interesting. 

 

Feeling Like You Don’t Belong?

Be thankful! Stick with the word and seek God always and understanding will be given to you. Here, in this scripture we have understanding as to why we might feel like we don’t belong.

1 John 3:1-3 KJV

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

[2] Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

[3] And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

Oh, To Praise Our God

Psalm 107:8-9

Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

Commentary

Lord God, we praise You today for Your incredible faithfulness and unfailing love. It is You Lord who has made it possible for us to know You, and to be in relationship with You – our loving Father. When we thirst, we can run to You with great confidence and sure hope. Thank You Lord, that I thirst for You. Thank You Lord, that when I am weak, You are strong enough to lead me back to You. No words are great enough to describe Your goodness. Thank You for choosing to be our God.

Oh ABBA, FATHER!!!!

wpid-verseoftheday-2015-09-14.jpg.jpg

I am finding it hard to describe!  One of those special moments in time!  Are you looking?  Are you watching?  Are you listening?  Do you sometimes see in part?  Do you hear in part?  Tonight I felt like a child!  I felt like happy child!  I felt like a little girl and my daddy had given me a gift and I was so happy!  About an hour later my daddy handed me another gift!  WOW…that is so amazing I thought!  I smiled so big!  About an hour later I realized that there was actually ANOTHER gift within!  All three were given to me at the same time but I didn’t see them all at the same time.  As I kept thinking how amazing the first gift was and then realizing that the second part that went with it made it so complete!  I shared it with my friends…”see, look it is from God…it is not a coincidence”!  Then, as I continued to ponder on the whole thing and kept smiling and feeling so happy the third part came flooding into my soul!!!!  I was already convinced, but WOW!  How can ANYONE else doubt it now?  The last part was like the deal was signed, sealed and DELIVERED! 

I immediately hit my knees and cried out….OH THANK YOU ABBA…THANK YOU….

It is that moment you have been so longing for.  You needed your Father to lift your face up and smile and say….I am here…I have been…I have been listening, my sweet sweet daughter. 

Most of the time we know it.  We praise Him.  We thank Him.  Sometimes though you just need that special gift, that special touch!  Not every one will notice it or see it, but you KNOW that you KNOW!  Then these verses came to mind.

Psalm 46:10 (KJV)

10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

Isaiah 41:10 (KJV)

10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 43:10 (KJV)

10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

Isaiah 43:12 (KJV)

12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God.

Isaiah 44:6 (KJV)

Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

Isaiah 45:18  (KJV)

18 For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.

Isaiah 45:22 (KJV)

22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

Isaiah 46:9 on (KJV)

Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,

So brothers and sisters, keep watch, keep listening and don’t miss the little things our Abba gives us!  All I can say is that I find myself wondering if those might just be some of the most special gifts of all!  It is all in the detail.  The details that can ONLY BE GOD!

Again….oh how I thank you Father!  Thank you for giving me the eyes to see!

Power

1 Corinthians 1:18 KJV

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

We will look at 3 kinds here. (This is my 2 cents worth so, take it as such.)


What is power?

  • Money
  • Knowledge
  • Control

Is power good or bad?

  • I think money can be good or bad. Depends on whose hands it is in and if used to help others or used for bribery, drugs, or anything not of God’s purposes.
  • Knowledge is once again dependent upon where you obtain it, what kind you obtain. Is it the knowledge of God or some type of worldly knowledge?
  • Control of anyone apart from self control is bad. We should never in anyway try to control what another thinks or does as long as they are capable people and not in need due to disabilities but even then you would only help t h em make decisions but not in controlling things. (You know what I am trying to say here.)

Does man desire power?

  • Evil or carnal men desire all the money they can obtain. A godly man would accept money to serve God with by helping those in need and therefore glorifying God.
  • Carnal man may or may not seek knowledge. A godly man seeks the knowledge of God.
  • Carnal man seeks to control others only for evil purposes whether he realizes it or not. I think most of us do this in some form and often unknowingly simply by trying to control a situation that could cause us to be more uncomfortable if we don’t control it. Even that is wrong. Self-control is the only control we should practice.
