Staying Focused on what matters…
News and the scriptures. Encourage one another in these days of chaos.
Praise the One true God!
Dear Jesus, we come before You and praise Your Holy name! The name above all names! We thank You and You alone for everything, even the thinks we may not understand completely right now. BUT, we love You, we trust You, and we exalt your mighty name. Jesus we ask You to watch over all of our brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus all over the world and yes, in Iran and Iraq and China and N Korea. Not just these but in all nations across this world. Dear Father in heaven, we pray that You would watch over our military, our sons and daughters, our mothers and fathers, our nieces and nephews. Our friends and neighbors. Watch over them as they are under attack. We ask that You would give them and our president and each of us Godly wisdom. War is not good or what we want. Sometimes it might be necessary. I trust You and You alone.
In the name above all names, I ask these things, thank You Jesus. Amen
Did someone ask for a wakeup call?
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.

May God continue moving across ALL nations and ALL peoples! I pray God opens the eyes if those who have been deceived by false gods and idols.
Thank You Jesus Christ for coming and going to the cross for the sins of the world. I pray that all will accept the gift of salvation that only comes from believing and receiving the truth that You speak of in the Holy Bible. The word of God. John 14:6. Jesus saith unto him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me
Do you know Jesus Christ?

Oh, to worship the One true God!
To honor the only One true God!
To glorify God!
He is holy!
Hear and SEE the voice of God!
His power is unmistakable!
Do you know Him?
A Psalm of David.
Give unto the Lord, O ye mighty,
Give unto the Lord glory and strength.
Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name;
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
The voice of the Lord is upon the waters:
The God of glory thundereth:
The Lord is upon many waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
The voice of the Lord is full of majesty.
The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars;
Yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.
He maketh them also to skip like a calf;
Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.
The voice of the Lord divideth the flames of fire.
The voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness;
The Lord shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord maketh the hinds to calve,
And discovereth the forests:
And in his temple doth every one speak of his glory.
The Lord sitteth upon the flood;
Yea, the Lord sitteth King for ever.
The Lord will give strength unto his people;
The Lord will bless his people with peace.
Are you one of them?
2009 Interview : Paul Washer’s Testimony
Do you have this issue? Maybe not, but we must each take an inventory of ourselves. Do we do the same thing that this scripture warns us about only it takes on a different look in our life?
My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism. Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in. If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?

1 Thessalonians 5:12-24
And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves. Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. – 1 Thessalonians 5:12-24 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1Thessalonians5:12-24&version=KJV
