Encourage one another!
Jas 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.
Jas 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.
Jas 5:9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
Jas 5:10 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
Jas 5:11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.
Jas 5:12 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.
So thankful God gave us this man! The church needed a stern talking to! Including me!
No matter how alone.
No matter how sad.
No matter how hungry.
No matter how scared.
The Lord God Almighty is always there so never fall for the lies of the one who is only here to steal, kill and to destroy you. God will rescue you into His arms after your test is over. NEVER give up. Never give in. THANK YOU JESUS!
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
If you have ever doubted that the Lord delights in you, read these verses carefully and meditate upon the breathtaking love of God. As a loving Father, His thoughts are on us so much more than I think we credit to Him. I am often too quick to speak with God as if I’m taking time away from His already busy schedule. I treat Him as if He was doing something else before I started praying. The truth, as always, shatters the lie into pieces. When we begin to pray, His full attention has already been on us, because God’s attention can be fully on everything and everyone at once. The magnitude of who He is and what He is capable of so often escapes us, and we make the mistake of living according to that false view of Him. Infused with the truth of God’s love, live free in Christ Jesus!

Is it all hype?
Is there any truth to it?
Is there any problem with trying to create peace?
Can we believe the word of God?
Should we believe God when He said those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed? (That was a paraphrase but you can look it up to find God’s words exactly.)
Remember, there will NEVER be peace, not true peace until the Lord God Almighty returns and puts a stop to the evil in all the world.
This is certainly worth the time to watch. Don’t listen to 10 minutes and assume you have seen before. Watch it all. Last night I watched it a second time and heard details I missed the first time!
God is moving…what will we do?
Dear Lord God, my Creator, my Sustainer, my King, my Savior, my EVERYTHING! Write thy words on the tablets of my heart. Hide thy words within my heart. Help me Lord to keep my eyes upon You. You and You alone will keep me safe.
(Psa 119:9) BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
(Psa 119:10) With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
(Psa 119:11) Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
(Psa 119:12) Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
TRUTH. ..Do you have eyes to see and ears to hear?
I will keep my words to a minimum. For mere words are not able to be spoken that can begin to describe how thankful I am. You my King, looked down upon me in my nakedness and filth and You saved me. Not because of me or anything I have or have not done, but because You are God and You loved me. That is why I am even able to begin to know You. Why I even began to have this desire You placed in my heart to seek You. In my small human nature this is not easy to understand. For Your ways are much more than ours. THANK YOU LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. ..THE BEGINNING AND THE END, THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA!
For the land will be deserted by them and will enjoy its sabbaths while it lies desolate without them. They will pay for their sins because they rejected my laws and abhorred my decrees. Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them or abhor them so as to destroy them completely, breaking my covenant with them. I am the Lord their God. But for their sake I will remember the covenant with their ancestors whom I brought out of Egypt in the sight of the nations to be their God. I am the Lord.’”
God promises to not reject the Israelites. Throughout history, the nation of Israel would sin against God over and over again, only to be brought back to a state of hope because of a judge, prophet, King: ultimately by God Himself who chose to lead them back to Himself by His power. Our relationship with God is on God’s shoulders, and that is proved by Christ Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. He is evidence that God has kept His promise for eternity. Once and for all Christ died for sins! God does not forget about covenants, and always keeps His promises.
