2 Corinthians 4:13-18
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Our eternal perspective as believers is vital to our witness for Christ throughout our lives. We must remember verse 17 during our “light and momentary troubles”. This helps us not lose heart, but grow in faith and continue in worship to a God who is, and always will be…worthy.

1 Chronicles 16:11-12

Those who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love.
We should be thankful it is only a slice at a time and not the entire pie at once!
Jesus told us to keep watch. Do not be deceived. Don’t be deceived by your own heart.
We must each look into our own hearts. Keep everything in its rightful place. Be careful that you are not calling evil good and good evil. You say you wouldn’t dare? How about even when it is only one slice at a time? Like whipped cream on top so it is prettier and maybe we will say , hey, it is their right.
Matthew 10 : 26
“So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.
Ephesians 5 :6-13
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not become partners with them; for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible
What do I mean by one slice at a time? Same sex marriage. My bible says that it is between a man and a woman. One slice. Yes, we will let sataanist do the opening invocation in Phoenix in February. Slice 2. Really, there has already been more than a pie delivered but if you cannot see what is going on in plain sight then you very well may be falling for the deception.
See these things have went on in the dark since the beginning, the fall of man. When it is all brought out of the dark hidden places for ALL to see and you just want to call it their rights and accept it then we are accepting it too.
Judgment is coming. I don’t know when but day by day more are celebrating in it. May God have mercy.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Thank You and we praise Your name Jesus Christ …You are our rock, our peace, our King of Kings and the Alpha and the Omega! Our blessed Hope!
Found the name they have given it rather interesting. Thought I would share.
1st picture shows the name and where it is. 2nd picture shows the meaning of the name.
Thank you again Pastor JD Farag,
So as in the days of Noah so shall be the days of the coming of the Son of Man. It had never rained before so you can understand why they may have had a hard time believing Noah. We have had rain and storms and all sorts of devastation and yet many are asleep and don’t want to see the world as it is. Watch the video and see if you can see the correlation. Time is ticking.
“As in the Days of Noah”
So, are you ready?
Are you unsure? Do you wish to believe but just can’t quite get it? I was once there. I even though I did get it. One day I truly had to pour everything I had out before Him and had to truly trust Him beyond all believe. Why? I was at a place that I literally had no other choice. I already believed but I suppose I hadn’t trusted Him in a way it takes. I began to truly learn what worshiping the Lord was. Then I began to fall in love with Him. At that point I began to realize that I really hadn’t known Him before. He began to change ME. Life is still imperfect but I have hope that one day it will be perfect with our King of Kings! I pray that if you don’t know Him like that now that you will cry out to Him. Soon that time will be gone. The opportunity will have passed. Seek Him now.
1 Corinthians 2:6-12
We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. However, as it is written:“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard,and what no human mind has conceived”— the things God has prepared for those who love him— these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us.
All who have accepted Christ have received the Holy Spirit to live within them. It is He (the Holy Spirit) who reveals to us God’s wisdom and “the deep things of God”. (vs. 11 NIV) Today, consider the importance of fellowship and relationship with the Holy Spirit. He is God within us, works to be in relationship with us, and provides understanding about the things of God happening in, around, and through our lives. He was released to dwell within people upon Christ’s return to heaven. He is a vital part of God’s plan for our lives.
