Head’s UP! Where are You Looking?

We all want to be a winner!   We all want to be the one to catch the ball! 

  • Are you prepared?
  • Are you dressed for the game?
  • Do you know all the rules?
  • Do you have a good coach?
  • Is your team ready?  Practiced up?

Are you and all your team-mates too busy playing around or squabbling over little things to be paying attention to what you should be?  Are you going to find yourself wondering what just happened AND it is only because you have been horsing around instead of WATCHING and LISTENING?

Are you too busy worrying about YOURSELF?  Too busy taking selfies to post on your favorite social media site so that everyone knows how GREAT YOU LOOK or so that everyone knows where you are and what you are doing, after all it IS all about YOU right?

These little ones are setting a pretty good example!  They are dressed!  They are watching!  Sun might be in their eyes but they are doing their best!

Our coaches, or our world leaders, or whoever it might be are figuring it all out for us.  RIGHT?  I mean we have nothing to worry about because our coaches will tell us when we need to worry or watch or be concerned.   Our news on TV will certainly be telling us the truth.  NO WORRIES!  CARRY ON…TAKE YOUR SELFIES….NO NEED TO KNOW THE RULES TO THE GAME…NO NEED!  Our leaders will tell you WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN YOU NEED TO KNOW IT!

So, you may be asking….WHAT IS YOUR POINT TODAY LADY?  I am not following…..

First point is that in case you have not noticed things are getting crazier by the day!  In the past we may have heard the beats of the war drums.  We may have found ourselves a little nervous or anxious at times. 

This morning I found myself thinking about the saying we all have heard.  “When they are trying to make you watch this ‘big silly thing over here’, then you might want to look a different direction because there is probably something else you need to be paying attention to.  They might be trying to distract you from what your concerns really should be over.

This morning I was trying to see if anyone got blown up during the night while I slept.  Did anything change on the world stage?  Lately every hour something new is happening!  I mean, it is hard to even know which direction to watch.  Who wants to wipe us off the planet?  I began to think about baseball.  I started thinking if you are in the outfield and you are not paying attention or not looking in the right direction when that ball is headed for you then you WILL NOT BE PREPARED!  We have something possible from many directions.  Is the ball going to be thrown at us by the Russians?  By the Iranians?  By the Chinese?  By North Korea?  Then we must ask…who is even on who’s team?  We have watched alliances form between Russia and Turkey.  Russia and China.  Russia and Iran.  Russia and Syria.  Russia and Israel.  There are many more but these seem to be the ones coming to my mind at the moment.  I really did not expect those to be the ones I thought of.  Since they did I have to say how interesting it is that Russia is a common denominator between the few I listed.

So, WHAT direction do we look?  Do we watch for the Russians?  Do we watch Syria?  Do we watch Iran?  Do we watch China?  Do we watch N. Korea?  How about all the evil ones sitting in Afghanistan? 

May I suggest that if you or myself or anyone else is asking this question then it is time to get out the rule book and figure it out and quick!

Yes, the Holy Bible is our only truth!  Our only rulebook!  This book of the word of God is really all we need.

Matthew 10:28 (below)

Mat_10:28  And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

First, this verse tells us to FEAR NOT.  Actually the phrase “fear not” pulled up 62 times in the KJV both old and new testament.

Luk 21:28  And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. 

What things?  When do we stop looking at everything coming at us and LOOK UP?

Luk 21:25  And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 

Luk 21:26  Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 

Is it just me or has everything gone haywire in the last few years?  So, we need to not listen to what the news tells us or what the leaders say or what the scientists say.  They all have an excuse for this or that.  Keep your eyes on the only ONE that matters!  Keep looking up!  Don’t let wars and rumors of wars cause you distress.  The world is freaking out.  Nature is freaking out.  The seas are freaking out.  It is enough to cause everyone to come unhinged.  We must repent and cry out to God!  Repent!  Admit we are sinners and in GREAT NEED for our Savior Jesus Christ!  Believe it as a child!  Accept His free gift!  Ask Him to begin to change you, clean you up, wash you up.  Give you new desires in your heart, desires that line up with His desires for us.  Ask Him to help us to love Him more and more every single day!  Seek Him with our whole being!

Jesus Christ is coming for His bride.  I do not know the day nor the hour.  I do know we are in the season.  The question should be….”Will we be ready?”

The Lesson of the Fig Tree

Luk 21:29  And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; 

Luk 21:30  When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. 

Luk 21:31  So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. 

Luk 21:32  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. 

Luk 21:33  Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 

Watch Yourselves

Luk 21:34  And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 

Luk 21:35  For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 

Luk 21:36  Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. 

Start the Conversation

Are you waiting on the right time?

Do you need to get things right first?

Do you need to stop the sin first?

How about starting the conversation with our Savior first.  Get to know Him.  Talk to Him.  Read His word and keep asking Him for His help.  Draw near to Him and He will draw near to you.  He loves you already.  He knows you now.  Come to Him just as you are and have faith that He will do just as He said He would.

Because He Lives

God sent his son, they called him Jesus,
He came to love, heal and forgive.
He lived and died to buy my pardon,
An empty grave is there to prove my savior lives.

[Chorus]
Because he lives
I can face tomorrow
Because he lives
All fear is gone
Because i know he holds the future
And life is worth the living
Just because he lives

How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
And feel the pride and joy he gives,
But greater still the calm assurance:
This child can face uncertain day because he lives.

[Chorus]

And then one day I’ll cross the river,
I’ll fight life’s final war with pain.
And then, as death gives way to vict’ry,
I’ll see the lights of glory and I’ll know he reigns.

[Chorus]

WARNING TO THE USA AND PRESIDENT NOW AND TO COME

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. 

2017-Those Who Have Ears to Hear and Eyes to See…

​Isaiah 42:5-9

Thus saith God the Lord,

He that created the heavens, and stretched them out;

He that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it;

He that giveth breath unto the people upon it,

And spirit to them that walk therein:

I the Lord have called thee in righteousness,

And will hold thine hand, and will keep thee,

And give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

To open the blind eyes,

To bring out the prisoners from the prison,

And them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

I am the Lord: that is my name:

And my glory will I not give to another,

Neither my praise to graven images.

Behold, the former things are come to pass,

And new things do I declare:

Before they spring forth I tell you of them.

The Coming Election 

Yes, we ALL must vote!  One day we may not have the ability.  You say it is rigged?  I will say I am certainly not disagreeing with that.   So why should we vote if it is rigged? 

BUT GOD!  He has the final word.  What will God’s people do?  God can do anything and nothing is impossible with God.  Does God require to see action from His people?  Remember, God does not force himself into our lives.  So, how much do God’s people care?

Acts 5:38-39

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.

 

God is Shaking America 

This morning I was having coffee trying to wake up and planning to drive to Tennessee to visit grandkids and son and daughter in law who are serving in the military. 


I also thought back on this day 34 years ago when my first son was born!  He is a fine man. Also serving in the military and based out of Norfolk.  He shook my world 34 years ago!  This morning sitting in our living room my morning violently shook again!   I am in my 50’s and about 5 years ago we had 2 earthquakes in Oklahoma within a 2 week period that I felt in Arkansas. First time I had ever felt one in Arkansas.   This morning again,  Oklahoma had a 5.6 and in our house we heard a loud roar and windows were rattling and it literally felt like a truck ran into our home!  I kid you not!  I screamed and ran to my husband who was in the bathroom,  and yelled WHAT WAS THAT?  He said, “it is an earthquake”!  I really thought something hit the house! 

It is crazy.  I don’t care why it is explained.  Don’t care that people will say it’s fracking. Does it really matter?   Jesus Christ told us.  His word is true.  I can’t help but wonder if most people just blow it off.  We all better be taking inventory in our lives.   JESUS IS COMING BACK! 

Matthew 24:4-8

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Power

Hebrews 11:11

By faith Sarah herself received power to conceive, even when she was past the age, since she considered him faithful who had promised.

Ears to Hear and Eyes to See

Deuteronomy 4:35-38

You were shown these things so that you might know that the Lord is God; besides him there is no other.  From heaven he made you hear his voice to discipline you. On earth he showed you his great fire, and you heard his words from out of the fire.  Because he loved your ancestors and chose their descendants after them, he brought you out of Egypt by his Presence and his great strength,  to drive out before you nations greater and stronger than you and to bring you into their land to give it to you for your inheritance, as it is today.

COMMENTARY
I believe we too are shown “these things so that you would know that the Lord is God and there is no other”. (NLT) As we read the Bible, story after story is revealed to communicate that we serve a faithful God who loves us and keeps His promises. Today is no different, as we live in a world full of slavery to sin. God is working to free people from the bondage of sin, just like He freed Israel from the clutches of Egypt. He sent Christ Jesus – God the Son – and now we, as His church, continue on as ambassadors for Christ! All have been set free from sin, preach the good news!

The World Seems to be Coming Apart!

No fear because God Almighty is STILL on the  throne!

Jeremiah 32:17

Ah, Lord GOD! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and by your outstretched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.

Queen of Heaven: Birthing A New Spirit (Pastor Charles Lawson)

Important sermon!
Knowledge
Jesus said many times,  “watch therefore”…”watch and be not deceived”.
Why did He warn us over and over to watch and be careful lest we be deceived?  It is time to wake up to the reality of the evil that is more than most are prepared to comprehend.

God bless you all my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour.
