Worldwide News: “IS THERE ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR THE LORD?”

The Bible says,  “Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord [Abraham – her husband] being old also?”  (Genesis 18:12)   It’s just human nature to doubt the Lord GOD, especially when the odds are against us! As you know this great lady (Abraham’s wife – Sarah) had been waiting for many, many, many years for a baby – the promised seed. Any body (in their right mind) would have given up. Any body (in their right mind) would tell an old lady, “Honey, IT JUST AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN!”  Youse eighty-nine (89) years old and you are way, way, way past the age of child bearing – forget it!  In fact, you’ve forgotten what sex is! 

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

In my last Blog, I talked about Abraham’s three Divine visitors – the Lord GOD [JESUS] and two angels who appeared in the Plains of Mamre.  No matter who you are (poor, rich, good looking or not, sick, well, short, tall, etc.), the LORD JESUS can find you and help you, if you ask HIM! You can run but youse can’t hide from the LORD GOD!

In this story, the LORD put life into Sarah’s  barren womb.  She was scientifically beyond baring a baby and the LORD gave her the strength to birth the baby. What a spectacular story!  Certainly, Sarah said within herself, “LORD, if I have found favor – pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant…”  Let’s not forget old ABE who still had juice left in him and a desire to make love to his wife who was way up in age! It’s a miracle their maid and butler didn’t help them into bed!

I’m thinking of a Gospel song which says,  “…there is no secret what GOD can do – what HE’s done for others, HE’ll do for you…”   As a little girl, I remember the Saints singing these words but (at that time), the words did not mean anything to me. Perhaps, you have stories about your childhood, your teen years, your young adulthood, and/or your life as you breathe and exist today!  Be honest and take a little time to reflect back over your life. There were multiple times, you were shipped- wrecked but the LORD heard your cries and HE looked down with compassions, forgiveness, and mercy on you. Amen!

If Sarah were down here on Earth today, she’d give you her testimony!  But, we have a better testimony!  The Lord JESUS  (paraphrasing)  asked., “Is There ANYTHING Too Hard For ME?”

Have a Blessed Day!

 

Worldwide News: “LORD – PASS NOT AWAY FROM THY SERVANT!”

The Bible states, “Abraham said, “MY LORD, if now I have found favor in thy sight PASS NOT AWAY, I pray THEE, from THY servant…”  (Genesis 18:3)  Make a PLEA to the ALMIGHTY GOD!

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

Here we have the Lord GOD [JESUS] and two Angels appearing out-of-no-where in the Plains of Mamre to Abraham. Can you imagine this?  Folks, this was during the heat of the day and Abraham was in his right mind (although he was 99 years old). Most people don’t live to be that old and (if they do), they cannot see, hear, talk, remember or take care of themselves! Yet, Abraham was very hospitable and he knew it was the Lord GOD & Company visiting. We can learn from Abraham!

(1)  IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO REVERANCE THE LORD GOD!   As Abraham humbled himself, we too must humble ourselves. I don’t care if you are the richest man or woman in the World!! ALL SOULS BELONG TO THE LORD GOD! Thus, Abraham said,  “My LORD, if now I have found favor in THY sight pass not away, I pray thee, from THY servant…” Like Abraham, we need to beg the Lord GOD to forgive us and ask HIM for favor saying, “…forgive me…turn me around…take away my sins…set my feet on solid ground…take away everything that is not like you LORD… If you care, then, you should tell the LORD!  You should ask the LORD,  “Do I have favor with YOU?”  Show me – myself!

(2)   IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO RECOGNIZE THE LORD!   Notice, Abraham acknowledged the Lord GOD & Company!  Abraham said,  “MY LORD!”  Although Abraham was very old, he still pay homage to these Divine visitors.  Abraham asked Them to let their hearts be comforted! Like Abraham, we need to put the Lord GOD first in our lives. When we wake up in the morning, give praise to the LORD! Somebody, didn’t wake up and they went into judgment! When we eat, give praise to the LORD as somebody out there is hungry! When we reach our destinations (jobs, schools, etc.), give praise to the Lord as somebody out there didn’t make it!

(3)   IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE DONE UNTO YOU!     Notice, Abraham offered the Lord GOD & Company water, food, and rest!   As Abraham, we must make it our business to help others! In fact, Abraham had water brought to wash their feet (as this was an Eastern custom). Now-a-days (in some USA homes), visitors may not kick off their shoes at the front door and most host/hostesses will not put somebody’s big dirty feet in their lap to wash them! In fact, one might get their feelings hurt if they have big crocodile/fungus toes nails! You may find this funny, but it is true!

Find people (less fortunate) to help with food, clothing, or pay a utility bill for them! As you do unto others, you are doing it unto the LORD! We must show the Lord GOD that we honor HIM and the people HE made! WE MUST CARE ABOUT OTHERS AS WELL AS OURSELVES! If we keep this attitude in the forefront of our minds, it will make a difference in the World and a chain reaction just may occur.

(4)   IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO TURN OUR LIVES AROUND!   We must avoid falling into the same traps day after days, month after months,  and year after years!  What are these traps? The snares of the dEVIL!  Say what?  If we are drinking too much, then, we must stop the intake and get professional help! If we are taking drugs, we must get off the drugs! If we are whoremonging with others, we must cease or some terrible sickness may come upon us! I’m sure, you get the picture!

We must learn to deny ourselves! There is no reason to keep on doing our own thang! One day (perhaps soon) our thang(s) will cease to work and people will run away from us!  If you don’t believe me, consider the following: Watch what happens if you become unemployed and your money runs out! Watch what happens if you don’t have a place to stay or a car to drive or food too eat! Watch what happens if you can’t make payday loans to others (who do not pay their debts)! The people you thought were true friends will leave you!

Honey, there is no body like the LORD GOD who loves you, forgives, you, and shows compassion for you! HIS WORD SAYS, “COME AS YOU ARE!”  You don’t have to go to a department store to buy a new outfit just to come to the LORD JESUS!  You only need a contrite heart and be godly sorrowful for your sins. Now, say these words with meaning, “LORD PASS NOT AWAY FROM THY SERVANT…”

Have a Blessed Day!

 

Worldwide News: “JESUS is DOWN to EARTH!”

The Bible says, “That same day, JESUS went out of the house and sat by the lake. Such large crowds gathered around Him that He got into a boat and sat in it…” (Matthew 13:1)  Try to visualize the LORD  standing beside you as  “JESUS is DOWN to Earth!”   He is closer than a Mother or friend!  He is a very, very, very help in YOUR time(s) of trouble. Frankly, there is trouble on every side of the road. You can’t even drive down the street without somebody tailing your bumper!  Fore sure, you must not flip them because they may shoot you!  Please read on…

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

In the movies, the directors show Greek and Roman gods coming down to Earth and interacting in the affairs of men and women. You know what I mean! BUT, that’s Hollywood or rather Polly-want-a-cracker?  Many of the best Biblical stories were messed-up by Hollywood! Don’t believe everything you see as Hollywood messed-up the story of NOAH (who was SIX HUNDRED years old not 45 years old) when the FLOOD CAME UPON THE EARTH! I’m sure all of Heaven frowned at the making and release of the 2014 movie about Noah!

JESUS is not a fairy tale god and HE is not something to play cat and mouse with. JESUS IS THE KING OF KINGS! Be very, very careful what you say about the LORD GOD!  HE hears, sees, knows, and records everything that you think and do!  Seriously, JESUS is not half man and half GOD!  HE is one hundred (100%) percent GOD!  JESUS is the Number Two DIVINE MEMBER of the GODHEAD!  As Christians, we serve the TRIUNE GOD – THE FATHER, THE SON, and THE HOLY GHOST!  (I Corinthians 15:24-28)

Yet, JESUS   came down from Heaven to Earth and HE walked, talked, cried, showed compassion and mercy, healed all manner of diseases, sat besides commoners, ate with commoners, stopped an adulterous woman from being stoned to death, slept outdoors, cooked over outdoor fires, fasted, attended weddings, preached to the multitudes, raised the dead, and you name it!

Yet, JESUS  is just as concerned about you and I as HE was back then! In fact, the Bible says,  “HE is the same, today, yesterday, and forever!”   Try to imagine yourself sitting on a park bench and the LORD JESUS materializes right before your very eyes! In fact, the Bible says to be careful how you entertain strangers as you may be entertaining an Angel – maybe the ANGEL OF THE LORD – JESUS!

Yet, JESUS   “…went out of the house and sat by the lake…”  (Mat. 13:1) How natural is this?  Apparently,  He was inside the house and then He came out of the house!   Today, can you imagine the LORD JESUS coming out of  a building and walking down a flight of stairs?  Can you imagine the LORD standing outside on the street as HE looks up and down the street at people?  Can you see the LORD smiling at little kids playing on the street and riding their bikes? Can you imagine the LORD looking up at Mothers yelling out of their windows at their children who are playing on the streets? Can you see the LORD going into hospitals and healing the sick throughout the hospitals? Can you see the LORD restoring sight to the blind and allowing the deaf to hear? Can you see the LORD stopping ambulance drivers to heal the injured folk on their way to the hospital? Can you imagine empty hospitals and  empty doctor offices as JESUS heals?  

WE SERVE AN AWESOME GOD!  If you are having any type of problems (including sickness, terrible news, unemployment, loss wages, maltreatment, discrimination, or whatever, you have an advocate in Heaven, JESUS!  There is nothing too hard for HIM to accomplish! I urge you to try the LORD and see just how good HE is! 

Have a Blessed Day!

Worldwide News: “Let BOTH Grow Until the HARVEST!”

The Bible says, “The owner’s servants came to him and said, Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?” An enemy did this, he replied. The servants asked him, Do you want us to go and pull them up?  No, he answered because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.”  (Matthew 13:27-29)

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

This message is for everybody!  As we are in the CHURCH AGE and the DISPENSATION OF GRACE, it is time for us to get on the right side of the road!  Well, many of you are as fuming but the seeds of righteousness are already planted in your heart, soul, and mind!  When you spammed my Blogs, the LORD GOD convicted your heart and that’s why you are in an uproar.  It’s OK and I am praying for all of you to recover.

Have you asked,  “Why is there so much confusion and violence in my home, at work, at school, in the stores, in the movies houses, in the beauty houses, in the streets, in the bars, in the clubs, in the cities and states, and across the World?” All of the confusion and violence is totally out-of-control!  This is no joke!  Far worse, is the confusion and violence in homes (among family members) as the home should be a place of refuge!

YEP!  There is one more place where confusion and violence hides itself and that is in the churches!  At will, you may pick any church and/or denomination to seek confusion and violence.  Sometimes, church members argue over who will lead Sunday morning Prayer Service!  The latter is superficial but there are sex scandals, money laundering, and fighting in  many churches – local, national, and international! Just click on the Internet and read it for yourself.  

Let’s get back to the message! There is a reason for all of the above statements! The real deal is that the weeds (sinners) and the wheat (Children of GOD) are growing in the same field.

This means: we are in the same home…or work in the same company…or work side-by-side in the mill…or work side by side in the emergency room…or travel in the same car, bus, train, subway, airplane, ferry boat, or cruise ship… Whatever the case, we are stuck in the same environment with people we cannot get along with and there is no way out (for now). For example, if you are a Christian and you work with people of different beliefs, you cannot curse them or call them stupid (the same goes for them) as we all must respect the rights of others as you must respect my right to preach the WORD!   The LORD GOD will condemn you and I  for mistreating others whom HE has commanded you and I  to esteem others more highly than ourselves! According to the WORD of GOD, you and I  are to treat others justly and work as peacefully as possible. If they step out-of-line or break the laws of the company (land, city, or state), they will be dealt with by the proper authorities (not by you or I). This means, you and I are not to take matters into our own hands.

Now there is a deeper twist to confusion and violence! This next bit of confusion and violence is harder to unravel. A Mother loves her son/daughter but she objects to the radical company he keeps (perhaps the son/daughter is getting in trouble)….a Father may be a good provider but he may not know how to love his wife (as he speaks harshly to her and/or he forgets birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, and the delicate subjects dear to her heart)…a Pastor can preach fiery sermons (like Apostle Paul) and the Pastor may be living in the basement of sin…a school teacher may be voted Teacher-of-the Year and he/she may be an undercover Molester of children…a political candidate may be running for the presidency and he may have a trunk full of sexual scandals or suffer with alcoholism or whatever!  I’m sure you get the picture.

Finally, learn to turn the other cheek and allow others to be whatever they choose. For sure, you did not make them and you have no heaven or hell to put them in. Be encouraged and go through your trials and tribulations by much prayer and fasting and trusting in the LORD GOD!

Have a Blessed Day!

 

 

Worldwide News: “JESUS is able to SAVE to the UTTERMOST!”

The Bible says, “Wherefore HE [JESUS] is able also to save them [YOU and I] to the uttermost that come unto GOD by HIM [JESUS], seeing HE [JESUS] ever LIVETH to make INTERCESSION for them…”  (Hebrews 7:25)  And so, “JESUS is able to SAVE to the UTTERMOST”   no matter how far out there you are deep in sin.

BRING IT DOWN ON HOME:

Many of you are re-evaluating your life and taking inventory of family, friends, co-workers, school, employment, future, and the like. If you haven’t given re-evaluation a thought, now is the time  – as tomorrow may be too late!  You are part of your environment and there is no way around it.  So, YOU should strive to make it better not worse!  The choices you make affect others so make sure you make the right decisions. Either you become a sounding board for right or wrong things in life or you hide like a chicken. BUT, if you are willing to make a difference, please read on….

Whatever you do, do it unto the Lord GOD!

(1)   You owe your existence to the LORD GOD not to others!  This doesn’t mean you’re to become a sanctified preacher – unless the Lord calls you. This doesn’t mean you have to place a big Bible on the dashboard of your car for others to see – unless the Lord says so. This doesn’t mean you have to hang a big wooden cross in your cubicle at work to show that you are a Christian – unless the Lord tells you.

(2)    The Lord wants to dwell inside your heart, soul, and mind! Once JESUS lives inside of you, the rest of you will obey HIS will. What does this mean? If you are a whoremonger, you will not play the harlot – this goes for male and female.  You’d rather stand in a food line to get cheese and crackers than to prostitute yourself for a pair of shoes. The Holy Spirit will severely convict you and you must obey!

(3)   The Lord takes the most undesirable and transforms them! Before his conversion, Apostle Paul (Saul of Tarsus) was the chief of sinners.  Paul’s testimony is,  ” I  was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.”   (I Timothy 1:13)

Finally, don’t hold back on the Lord because you are afraid to face the truth. Don’t hold back because others may tag you a silly or a wimp!  Don’t hold back because you are too weak to make an-about-face! As Apostle Paul said, “…I obtained mercy…”   If PAUL OBTAINED MERCY – YOU WILL AS WELL!   It does not matter that you sin willfully or unwillingly as sin is sin!  Stop finding excuses saying,  “If Fred or Jane or Matt or Sally didn’t call me, I would have stayed home and kept to myself!”   Look in the mirror and face yourself…then…pray to the LORD GOD who will forgive you.  Now get up to take another look in the mirror as you may still look the same but your heart is not the same!  You are changed!   Listen to the Holy Spirit as He delivers messages from GOD to you! Pray for courage to obey the Lord GOD. You may have to move to another location or change your cell/phone number to get away from bad influences. But remember this,  “JESUS is able to SAVE to the UTTERMOST!” 

Have a Blessed Day!
