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.
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.

Are you one of them?
2009 Interview : Paul Washer’s Testimony
Not one is impossible.
There is only one way.
You are not a lost cause.
Never think , “what is the point”.
We all CAN have hope, not as the world gives but as belief in Jesus Christ gives.
This year, 2015, seek the Lord while He may still be found. Time is ticking.
Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
You are justified by the blood of Christ alone. This means that justice has been done regarding the sinful lives we lead – and that price was paid by Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary. Without payment, we would be forever separate from God our Father, unable to enter His presence. Our sins were paid for by His death. This leaves us Christ alone to hold onto in order to relate to God. It is Christ resurrected that paves our way to salvation and eternal life. Through Christ ALONE you have received reconciliation, and so much more. Hold on tight to the one true Messiah.
Verse/Commentary courtesy of ‘Verse-A-Day’ android app.
I am a little speechless. I had read this passage before and marked it. I seem to have a different view this time reading it. Could it be that it feels to familiar because of our recent and current headlines? Anyone else?
5 “Look at the nations and watch—and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.
6 I am raising up the Babylonians, that ruthless and impetuous people, who sweep across the whole earth to seize dwelling places not their own.
7 They are a feared and dreaded people; they are a law to themselves and promote their own honor.
8 Their horses are swifter than leopards, fiercer than wolves at dusk. Their cavalry gallops headlong; their horsemen come from afar. They fly like a vulture swooping to devour;
9 they all come bent on violence. Their hordes advance like a desert wind and gather prisoners like sand.
10 They deride kings and scoff at rulers. They laugh at all fortified cities; they build earthen ramps and capture them.
11 Then they sweep past like the wind and go on—guilty men, whose own strength is their god.”
The Truth…then below the first paragraph you will find hope for all believers from Peter in the Holy Bible…read for peace in your soul.
If you know Jesus, the son of God, who was born of a virgin and who was sent to be perfect and sinless and an example to all of the world. If you know He was sent to die on a cross and bear all OUR sin for all who believe and accept Jesus as their Savior. For all who repent and turn from their own sinful ways on a daily basis. For WE ARE ALL SINNERS except for Jesus Christ. We are all in need of a savior. All of us, Middle East, Asia, American, the entire world. Not one of us is sinless except the son of the one and only true God. Jesus and the Father are one in the same and if you have seen and know Jesus then you have seen and know the Father in Heaven. Jesus died on the cross for all of us who call out to Him. Jesus was put in a tomb and rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven with the Father. We have been given the mercy and grace by God although we deserve it not. Praise God and give Him thanks no matter what your circumstances at this moment.
1 Peter 4:7-19
The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And,“If it is hard for the righteous to be saved,what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?” So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
Prophecy of Scripture
2 Peter 1:12-14
So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have. I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body, because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me.
DO NOT LET ANYONE TELL YOU IT IS JUST A STORY
2 Peter 1:16-21
For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain. We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
The Day of The Lord
2 Peter 3:3-10
Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.
2 Peter 3:14-15
So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him. And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things. Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
Note from friend in America
This is for all my brothers and sisters living in complete fear. Surrounded by pure evil. Stand on the word of God! He will help you in your time of need. He is your strength in your weakness. WHATEVER you do NEVER turn from The Lord because you think it will save your life because you will surely lose your life. Luke 17:33 Whoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
All my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, you all are in my prayers….
If you are don’t know the one true God but follow a false god or if you do not believe in anything but yourself. I ask you to consider to turn in this urgent time we live in and repent and ask The Lord God Almighty to receive you and to forgive you and to reveal Himself to you in a way that only He can. Ask Him to change your heart and soul and mind. Ask Him to give you a desire to love and to serve Him in a way you never could have conceived of. “If you do this with all sincerity I know God will do as He promises in His word that He will!” Have faith. I am praying for all of you too.
