Why do so many hate?

Why do so many lie?

Why is evil growing?

Why are so many noticing that something isn’t quite right?


Daniel 9:13 KJV

As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.


“Powerful Warning to America! (2018-2019)”

Isaiah 51:7-8 KJVS
Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.

[8] For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.


Suffering? Keep these Words on Your Heart

Romans 8:35-36 KJVS

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

[36] As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

8:35, 36 (Commentary from KJVS)

These words were written to a church that would soon undergo terrible persecution. In just a few years, Paul’s hypothetical situations would turn into painful realities. This passage reaffirms God’s profound love for his people. No matter what happens to us, no matter where we are, we can never be separated from his love. Suffering should not drive us away from God but help us to identify with him and allow his love to heal us.

Israel announced on Wednesday that a new train station at the Western Wall will be named after United States President Donald Trump.

Israel’s Transportation Minister Israel Katz made the announcement on Wednesday morning, noting President Trump’s “historic and brave decision”, stating “The Western Wall is the holiest place for the Jewish people, and I decided to name the train station that leads to it after President Trump following his historic and brave decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.”

The new train line is just over 3 kilometers and will enter the Old City underground, where archeologists are guaranteed to make discoveries.

On December 6, 2017, President Trump announced the United States’ recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state, announcing he would move the US embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. Trump stated on Israel’s right to Jerusalem as a soverign nation, stating during his announcement “Israel is a sovereign nation with the right, like every other sovereign nation, to determine its own capital. Acknowledging this as a fact is a necessary condition for achieving peace.”

This week, Guatemala announced it would return its embassy to Jerusalem, following the Czech Republic. Israel recently announced that is in talks with at least ten other countries, many with a “strong Christian base”, on recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and moving their embassies.

Netanyahu Confirms Israel To Withdraw From UNESCO

From:Behold Israel. ..December 24th 2017.

Again, I say keep watching, keep praying.

Israel to follow United States in withdrawing from UNESCO; Netanyahu addresses Abbas, end of peace process; Abbas met with Macron in Paris, claims US “has proven to be a dishonest mediator in the peace process,” Dec. 24, 2017.


In his weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, Prime Minister Netanyahu confirmed that Israel would follow the United States and withdraw from UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, at the end of this year.

The prime minister confirmed over the weekend that he instructed Israel’s Foreign Ministry “to withdraw from UNESCO,” stating Sunday “I think that this is appropriate, given this organization’s biased, one-sided and absurd attitude toward us, and against the background of the US’s strong stand at the UN, which we welcome.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu also addressed Abbas’s announcement on Friday that the United States was a “dishonest mediator in the peace process”. Netanyahu stated Sunday “He [Abbas] declared that he is quitting the process and, in effect, is not interested in any proposal that the US might submit. I think that once again it is becoming clear: It is the Palestinians who do not want to resolve this conflict.”

Netanyahu added “The US has said something else that is very important: The root of the general conflict in the Middle East does not lie in Israel, but in Iran and in radical Islam and the terrorism that it inspires. All of these are the true reasons that have been revealed to everyone. Whoever sees clearly and has integrity cannot deny them.”

The U.S. State Department confirmed the United States’ withdrawal from UNESCO in October of this year after the organization adopted several resolutions denying Jewish and Israeli heritage to religious sites in Israel, mainly Jerusalem. It announced it would remain a “non-member state” as to in “contribute U.S. views, perspectives and expertise on some of the important issues undertaken by the organization, including the protection of world heritage, advocating for press freedoms, and promoting scientific collaboration and education.”

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas met with French President Emanuel Macron in Paris Friday, their meeting part of the Palestinian’s efforts to find a new peace broker in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as well as lobby support against Israel and the United States.

Abbas again announced on Friday that “The United States has proven to be a dishonest mediator in the peace process and we will no longer accept any plan from it,” and claimed that the Palestinians have “trust” in France and that “We respect the efforts made by you and we count heavily on your efforts.”

On President Trump’s announcement that American aid would be cut from countries that vote for the resolution against the United States’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Abbas stated he “hoped that the others will learn the lesson and understand that you cannot impose solutions by using money and trying to buy off countries.”

Macron stated that France would not make a unilateral decision on a future Palestinian state without approval of the European Union, criticizing the United States for its decision on Jerusalem stating, “The American mistake was to want to unilaterally manage from afar a situation whose solution is in the hands of the Israelis and Palestinians… The Americans have marginalized themselves and I am trying to not do the same thing.”

Last week, Abbas sent two Palestinian Authority delegations to China and Russia in efforts to find a “new international sponsor for the peace process”, the PA confirming “The two delegations will convey a message from President Abbas to Russia and China, the purpose of which is to find a new international sponsor for the peace process, in the framework of the United Nations, in order to replace the American sponsorship.”

Around the same time, Russia offered to replace the United States as an “honest mediator” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Russia’s Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations, Vladimir Safronkov, made the offer following the United Nations Security Council vote on Jerusalem on Monday. According to Russian media, he stated “We [Russia] are ready to become an honest mediator here.”

Prayer For Bright Shining Light

Luke 8:16 (below the prayer)

Help me Abba Father to NOT try to hide my light. Forgive me for doing so many times in the past. I am ashamed of myself for it. I can see that I didn’t want to put it completely out, but am guilty of trying to dim it a little. Why? Abba Father, if I had to say based on my current understanding I would say that it could be compared to as this. Say that I have unbelieving family members coming over to eat at Thanksgiving. I know that they don’t believe and or fear that if my light was shining brightly that they would ridicule me, or try to debate my beliefs. I live in my house and as people enter in I put up a curtain to block a lot of the light. I don’t want to put it completely out, but why do I try to keep the brightness of the light of the Holy Spirit which dwells within me from shining brightly? I feel it within myself! When these family members come I seem to want the light to not be too bright for them. Hence the curtain to take away the brightness. That is wrong! That is stifling the glorious work that You, the King of Glory might be trying to do. By doing this I am trying to please man instead of my Father in Heaven. I am trying to create a place so that those who are saying that they don’t believe won’t be forced to see their own wickedness because of Your glorious light that shines brightly. If I have the curtain up so that they can come in and they might still be comfortable in their sin because the light of Jesus Christ is being hidden a bit so that the filth of their own guilt won’t be exposed. I can’t make anyone choose You Father, nor can I change anyone in my own power. Help me Abba Father to stop trying to dim the glorious light that You have put within me! If those who are walking into the well lit room because of Your light that I DO DESIRE TO SHINE EVER SO BRIGHTLY from me, if they become angry or condescending or begin mocking me , I desire for YOU to help me to respond in all patience and meekness and humble kindness and love. Help me not to lash out or run and hide. If they seem to not want to come back again because Your light shining brightly in the darkness and showing each one his own wickedness within his own heart and flesh, then Lord God help me to accept that they may not come back. If they don’t come back it is not because of me, but instead because Your light shines upon them and causes some to see places in their lives that need the blood of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit causes light to shine brightly and begins to convict the hearts of the sinner. When someone chooses to rebel against the convicting truth they will flee back into the darkness where they might be comfortable going on in the wickedness they have grown to enjoy. Often it is because of selfishness, because we would rather live in deception that this world will provide freely to be able to walk in our own fleshly desires. I pray LORD God that You will help me to stand like a light on a hill shining brightly and stop ME from trying to help others to be comfortable in their sin. I am certainly not doing what You expect and require of those who say they are the children of God. I am not saying I should point out the sin of those around me , no, I have my own filth to constantly be asking and praying for You to wash from my flesh. When I let Your light shine brightly, then I pray it might begin changing the hearts and minds within each who see the light of God. That they might desire to seek You. Not because I am saying things to them to condemn or convict them or trying to convince or convert them but because the Holy Spirit which is the light dwelling in the hearts of those who belong to You Father. If I might not fear my light shining brightly, but instead allowing it to shine brightly knowing that the Holy Spirit might actually be received by others and hearts will begin to be changed. Not because of me but because of thee that lives within me.

I thank You LORD God, I ask for Your help in living and walking in the way You would desire me to, knowing that simply by following Jesus Christ that others might also desire to know You. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ I ask and pray these things. Amen.

Luke 8:16 KJV

No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light.


Purpose of Deuteronomy

I like this….


To remind the people of what God had done and encourage them to rededicate their lives to him.


“Understand, therefore, that the Lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands” (7:9).


Only Jesus Christ Can Wash You Clean

Hebrews 9:24-28

For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.


Jesus Christ has dealt with sin once and for all. That work is finished, and He is at the right hand of the Father in Heaven on our behalf. When we are tempted we must run to Jesus. When we fall for temptation and sin sabotages our lives, we must run to Jesus. If we have been tricked into living days, months, or years in a sinful pattern that constantly damages us and those around us: we must run to Jesus. There is no dealing with sin apart from the work Christ did on the cross. That is the work that has dealt with your sin. The battle belongs to the Lord, and He finished that battle on the cross. Let Jesus become your “more than enough”. Let Him take the throne of your heart and dethrone all idols and pretenders that are hell-bent on getting you to buy their lies. Run to Jesus, He can makes all things new.

Cracked Clay Pot

Jeremiah 18:6 KJV

O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord . Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

18:6 As the potter molded or shaped a clay pot on the potter’s wheel, defects often appeared. The potter had power over the clay, to permit the defects to remain or to reshape the pot. Likewise, God had power to reshape the nation to conform to his purposes. Our strategy should not be to become mindless and passive—one aspect of clay—but to be willing and receptive to God’s impact on us. As we yield to God, he begins reshaping us into valuable vessels.

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.



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!

Tired and Can’t Take Another Step?

Stress has a way of taking its toll on all of us. Do you ever wish you were the ever-ready bunny? You know, the one that takes a beating but just keeps on going?

Well, I have to be re-charged! Only my King of Kings and Lord of lords can do that for me. He and He alone gives me strength when I have no strength left. Just as I think I am toast, done, stick a fork in me done, that is when I am at the end of ME and the beginning of Him who created me!

Thank You Jesus for all You provide for me. I am not worthy of the hope that You continually allow me to see, and that strengthens my faith and my spirit and my walk with You! Thank You Jesus for never letting go of me even when I am certain that this just might be the time that You do.

Thank You Jesus for always being faithful to Your word! We are so used to the lies of this world, being told we are nothing, hearing whispers saying we are NOT good enough. BUT, GOD, my Creator, Sustainer, Great Physician, Judge, Saviour, Protector, Mighty One, Fortress, First and the Last, Beginning and the End, Alpha and the Omega! The I AM! You and You alone strengthen me and cause me to soar on the wings of eagles! Your name will I praise forever and ever! Amen!

Philippians 4:13 KJV

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

New Commandment

John 13:34-35 KJV

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. [35] By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

Is this hard for anyone besides me? I mean it is pretty easy to love those who love us but when people who seem headstrong to make your life harder it is a struggle for me. It takes focus! Lots of it! You can try all you want in your own strength but, at least for me, I fail every time! My focus must stay on the Lord God Almighty in I order to remotely head in the correct direction of loving those who don’t even try to just like me.

Isaiah 26:3-4 KJV

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee : because he trusteth in thee. [4] Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength:

Yes, that is the key. Keep your mind on the things above. We certainly live in a time where there are constant distractions.
