A flag? Not just the flag, but everything it stands for. Thus man says it well.
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
(Mat 5:45 KJV)
We have all seen them. The horrible pictures. The rain that came so fast. They expected some rain yes but THIS?
So much loss. So much tragedy. So much pain. If you did not lose a loved one then the rest is just stuff right? Sure, as long as it was not your stuff. Right? We know that is the truth. Be thankful. While it might be the truth, when you are in the middle of this you are sad. Maybe you lost all your family photo’s. Maybe you lost everything except your life, like Job.
So, again we ask why?
By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened.
(Job 37:10 KJV)
Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud:
(Job 37:11 KJV)
And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth.
(Job 37:12 KJV)
He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.
(Job 37:13 KJV)
(Here the Lord gives us 3 possible reasons. ‘I personnnally found for his land interesting’.)
Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
(Job 37:14 KJV)
Dost thou know when God disposed them, and caused the light of his cloud to shine?
(Job 37:15 KJV)
Dost thou know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of him which is perfect in knowledge?
(Job 37:16 KJV)
I see these last 3 verses and think… Do we notice when the sun shines on us and the temperature is that perfect 75 degrees? Do we notice when everything is going perfect? Do we notice when we buy and buy more and more things? Do we give thanks in all of the good things ALL of the time?
God is good ALL the time. When it rains it comes on the just and the unjust. We all should look within and see if we have any house cleaning to do. I for one know I always so. After taking a personal inventory and doing some personal repenting, maybe just maybe it would do us some good to notice all of the beauty that surrounds us most days. The butterflys that we watch land on a beautiful flower. The hummingbirds looking for some sugar. Sit in a quiet place and listen to the birds sing. Go to a park and watch children play. Learn to enjoy some of the simple things God surrounds us with on most days.
Thank you LORD God! Thank you for helping us to look up into the heavens. Look up and just shout THANK YOU JESUS! For you are an Awesome God and YOU are so very worthy of more than all of our complaints. Thank You!!! We praise your Holy name!
The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side. And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore. And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Matthew 13:18-23: “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”

1 John 4:10-11
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.

Don’t miss this one! We have all heard it, but I think maybe we get so excited about Jesus Christ and His WONDERFUL return that we might grasp onto anything that really makes sense. It is good to keep looking for our blessed hope! Our kinsman redeemer! Our King of Kings! He is coming back! Just be careful and don’t get caught up in one thing and end up not spending time with the Lord Jesus. He is the most important thing. Not that we know when. Stay focused on Him and when He comes guess what. ..YOU will know!
Love you all my brothers and sisters. ..I said this for myself too. Pastor Lawson is a wise pastor. I am greatful for him.
And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
How awesome is our God?
Don’t even THINK ABOUT missing this one!
I have watched many different things on this subject. I have dug into the scriptures on this subject. I may not always agree with everything this pastor speaks, but then I don’t agree 100% with any pastor. I will say that he said some things that I hadn’t heard until this video. I pray everyone would listen to and at least consider what he says and pray about it and as we are always told to fo, KEEP WATCHING AND LOOKING UP!
Watch this b few minute long video. Everyday becomes a little more freaky. Yet everyone is so focused on the MANY DIFFERENT issues going on that ONE DAY, THE LOUD CHAOS WILL SUDDENLY STOP! Then, many will awake to the new world already in progress!
