Thank you again Pastor JD Farag,
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.
In the beginning, the Triune God breathed life into us all. Then sin entered, and our relationship with God was broken. Enslaved to sin, we were hopeless…dead in our transgressions. Reconciliation to God, something we could never have accomplished, came to us in the person of Jesus Christ. In His life, death, resurrection, and return to the Father in Heaven, He paved the way for the Spirit of Life (The Holy Spirit) to seal us in relationship with God forever. Those who believe in Christ are now sealed in that love relationship, and have gained eternal life.

I KNOW THIS IS LONG,BUT IMPORTANT.
Sounding the alarm….WHO WILL HEAR, WILL ANY LISTEN?
What do you think? Could America be the end time Babylon? I used to not lean that way, but I am beginning to see things a little differently.
“Dear Lord God Almighty, please open the eyes of all Your children quickly! Please give ALL of Your children the eyes to see and the ears to hear and I pray You Almighty God will give us the wisdom to understand! Lord Your word tells us that You will not withhold wisdom from any who ask but You will give it freely to all who ask for Your wisdom and understanding. In the most Holy name of Jesus Christ we give thanks. …amen.”
The Judgment of Babylon
13 The oracle concerning Babylon which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw.
On a bare hill raise a signal;
cry aloud to them;
wave the hand for them to enter
the gates of the nobles.
I myself have commanded my consecrated ones,
and have summoned my mighty men to execute my anger,
my proudly exulting ones.
The sound of a tumult is on the mountains
as of a great multitude!
The sound of an uproar of kingdoms,
of nations gathering together!
The Lord of hosts is mustering
a host for battle.
They come from a distant land,
from the end of the heavens,
the Lord and the weapons of his indignation,
to destroy the whole land.
Wail, for the day of the Lord is near;
as destruction from the Almighty it will come!
Therefore all hands will be feeble,
and every human heart will melt.
They will be dismayed:
pangs and agony will seize them;
they will be in anguish like a woman in labor.
They will look aghast at one another;
their faces will be aflame.
Behold, the day of the Lord comes,
cruel, with wrath and fierce anger,
to make the land a desolation
and to destroy its sinners from it.
For the stars of the heavens and their constellations
will not give their light;
the sun will be dark at its rising,
and the moon will not shed its light.
I will punish the world for its evil,
and the wicked for their iniquity;
I will put an end to the pomp of the arrogant,
and lay low the pompous pride of the ruthless.
I will make people more rare than fine gold,
and mankind than the gold of Ophir.
Therefore I will make the heavens tremble,
and the earth will be shaken out of its place,
at the wrath of the Lord of hosts
in the day of his fierce anger.
And like a hunted gazelle,
or like sheep with none to gather them,
each will turn to his own people,
and each will flee to his own land.
Whoever is found will be thrust through, and whoever is caught will fall by the sword.
Their infants will be dashed in pieces
before their eyes;
their houses will be plundered
and their wives ravished.
Behold, I am stirring up the Medes against them,
who have no regard for silver
and do not delight in gold.
Their bows will slaughter the young men;
they will have no mercy on the fruit of the womb;
their eyes will not pity children.
And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms,
the splendor and pomp of the Chaldeans,
will be like Sodom and Gomorrah
when God overthrew them.
It will never be inhabited
or lived in for all generations;
no Arab will pitch his tent there;
no shepherds will make their flocks lie down there.
But wild animals will lie down there,
and their houses will be full of howling creatures;
there ostriches will dwell,
and there wild goats will dance.
Hyenas will cry in its towers,
and jackals in the pleasant palaces;
its time is close at hand
and its days will not be prolonged.
Think on these verses, meditate on them. Ask God to reveal truth, His truth to you. I pray for all of our brothers and sisters all over this world. Many are and have been for awhile now, persecuted. In America Christians will begin to HAVE to make a real choice . No more Luke warm. You will be forced to stand completely for the truth of Jesus Christ or against the truth of our one true God. Many of us have sat in the section mixed together rooting for this team then for that one while never having to really choose one side or the other. Being able to stroke our egos and be LIKED BY ALL PEOPLE. Brothers and sisters, this is going to arrive at a quick stop, so brace yourselves. Prepare yourselves to choose THIS DAY whom you will serve. What side of the line will YOU stand on when it comes to you and or your children being slaughtered? Choose wisely. Because you can choose a little more time here in this sick and perverted world with your things or, you can choose eternal life. You might lose your life here in this world if you choose Jesus Christ, but you will gain eternal life with the One who created you and me and you will live forever in Heaven, the way God intended. OR you can choose to keep your life HERE by denying Jesus Christ. No one can be certain they will live long by making that choice or that the quality of that time here will be what you desired. Let’s pretend it is good for 3.5 years then what?
Let me make one thing clear brothers and sisters, the devil HATES YOU and YOUR FAMILY. He will try to lure you onto his side of the line by any means possible. Lies are in his greatest abilities.
We each must choose for ourselves and what we choose might divide you from all of your family on this earth. But, rest assured that if you choose Almighty God and stand firm putting on the full armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the one who wishes to destroy you and not to love you and sustain you and prosper you. God has the best future for His children who seek His face and seek to KNOW Him and then choose Him and go and stand on the side of the line with all of us. This world will try to tell you we are a bunch of looney tunes, a bunch of misfits. Don’t listen to the world but get to know the voice of our Loving, Living God, the ALPHA and Omega and the I Am, the Beginning and the End , the First and the Last ! Get to know Him if you don’t already and He will guide you and lead you down the narrow path. He will never leave you nor forsake you regardless of how dark it might get before He takes us to the home He has prepared for those who love Him.
I pray that we each one are beginning to prepare (Ephesians 6:10 through the rest of the chapter) for the spiritual and maybe physical battle we are about to truly begin. Yes, even here in AMERICA.
Pray always. May our God be with each
one who chooses wisely.
Keep hold and stand firm!
Walk in the Spirit not in the flesh. I know…it is a minute by minute thing most days! Keep on and don’t lose hope and DON’T LOOKING BACK LIKE LOT’S WIFE DID! We have nothing in this world but we have a better future in Christ Jesus! Do you know Him?
2 Timothy 1:7
7 For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
A few friends of mine at work have started a study on Faith. I created an introduction and at the end I asked why God might think it is so important for us to understand faith? Below are a few of the scriptures. I know they encouraged me today after reading them again.
8For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.…
22But Jesus turning and seeing her said, “Daughter, take courage; your faith has made you well.” At once the woman was made well.
50And He said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”
Luke 17:5-6 (The Power of Faith)
5The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” 6And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and be planted in the sea’; and it would obey you.
1 Peter 1:3-9
Praise to God for a Living Hope
3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. 6In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.7These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 8Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
1 John 5:4-5
for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
6And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
It is not up to me.
There are no words that I can say.
Nothing I can do to change a mind.
I cannot wake anyone up.
I have tried and tried and tried.
I am not claiming to know anything or everything.
I will simply say, we must pray. Yesterday I prayed with my son who was heading out for Middle East. I gave him many verses in my talk. I did not know why but they were just the verses The Lord had given me. I was good with that because I know God knows why. I ended our talk with Psalm 91 and told him this was going to be my prayer. This morning in prayer I asked The Lord to help me memorize this chapter as I pray it every day that our son is gone. After work today I was listening to someone and they said to pray and what? Yes, again Psalm 91. I am putting it below. Pray and make sure you are right with God Almighty. I cannot do it for you and you cannot do it for anyone else. May God have mercy on us all.
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—even the LORD, who is my refuge—
10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
