GRIEVING


GRIEVING
 
For all who have lost a loved one, friend or pet.

Today is my husband's birthday, I miss him so much. 

People seem to forget that you’re sitting there alone night after night suffering. Today it appears that everyone is to busy or maybe they think someone else should be taking the time to stop by or call their grieving family member or friend. This is why I needed to reach out to other who are grieving. I don’t want someone else feeling they have no one they can reach out to. This is for anyone who is grieving for a lost loved one, friend or pet to find a compassionate friend to share with. These past seven months the only one I truly found I could count to be there were, Jesus Christ and our two girls (dogs). The kids have been a great help, but one lives out of state and the other is busy working and running his kids around. So I turn to God for His comforting words.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,
who comforts us in all our tribulation,
that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble,
with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.

2 CORINTHIANS 1:3-4

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes;
there shall be no more death, nor sorrow,
nor crying. There shall be no more pain,
for the former things have passed away.”

REVELATION 21:4

As a Christian I believe in the rapture, and pray everyday that God will send Jesus down to the clouds and He will call us all home and put an end to the pain, suffering, loneliness, the heartbreak, and the evil of this world and bring our families all together.

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God.
And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive
And remain shall be caught up together with them
in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17

The pain, emptiness, loneness and broken hearted need others to listen to them without judging these feelings one goes through at their time of grieving. There are times I feel like no one cares, even though I know that’s not true. There are also times the loneliness becomes so overwhelming. You see after a short time everyone else goes back to their normal life while you feel the life you had is over and what do I do now. My husband was my life. We did everything together. It has been eight months and I am still waiting for him to walk through the front door. What is keeping me going is God’s grace and we have to elkhounds that we love, and they need me to care for them, and they have been a great comfort to me. When I cry Sheba hangs her head looking so sad, and Keshia climbs in my lap and kisses my tears away. God blessed me with them to give me a reason for getting up and out of bed each morning and showing me He is always with me.

10 Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

ISAIAH 41:10

Let each of you look out not only for his own interests,
but also for the interests of others.

PHILIPPIANS 2:4

Without Jesus there is no hope, just death. But Jesus came to save us from our sins, from death and God’s wrath to come and to give us everlasting life for all who believe in Him.

and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness,
the firstborn from the dead,
and the ruler over the kings of the earth.
To Him who loved us and
washed us from our sins in His own blood,

REVELATION 1:5

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God
is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

ROMANS 6:23

10 and to wait for His Son from heaven,
whom He raised from the dead, even
Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.

1 THESSALONIANS 1:10

I am waiting and watching for Jesus to appear and take us all home. Amen

Watch therefore, for you do not know
what hour your Lord is coming.

MATTHEW 24:42

looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing
of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,

TITUS 2:13

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY


FROM  ME  TO  GOD  TO  YOU

On  this  day  of  the  year
When  I  feel  so  alone
For  you  left  this  earth
For  your  heavenly  home

I’d  like  to  wish  you
A  Happy  Mother’s  Day
For  all  that  you  did
I  could  never  repay

I  miss  you  so  much
Since  you  went  away
But  I  know  in  my  heart
I’ll  see  you  one  day

But  until  that  day  comes
My  words  will  get  through
As  they  soar  to  the  heavens
From  me  to  God  to  you

For our citizenship is in heaven,
from which we also eagerly wait
for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,

PHILIPPIANS  3 : 20

HOLLYWOOD NO MORE


HOLLYWOOD NO MORE

It makes me so angry when these Hollywood celebrities come out so righteous about social issues. But when it comes to making money they are the ones promoting a society with no values or morals. They push violence, guns, sex and the occult and mock God and Christians in all their movies one way or another. The women in this industry are so willing to take their clothes off for money and entertainment, they have no self respect. Yet they think we should listen to them. Because of their immorality advertisers are also pushing sex in their ads and pharmaceutical companies are now pushing birth control in commercials for young single women.

I will set nothing wicked before my eyes;
I hate the work of those who fall away;
It shall not cling to me.

Psalm 101:3    

The new movie coming out Blockers is about young girls making a sex pact on prom night. Do you really want your daughters to get their training from a movie? We are now living in a society where children are growing up without a father or they have a weekend father. Hollywood has done its best to destroy the American family. It’s time to put our children’s needs before ours. Family First.

The integrity of the upright will guide them,
But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.

PROVERBS 11:3

As parents and adults we have the power to stop this. You have the power to tell your children they can not see these movies or you will take their cell phone away for a week if they disobey you, two weeks for second offence and so on. Let’s not forget those high priced movie channels. Turn them off, save all that money and your children. Take that time and play a game with them or read the bible to them. The young love prophecy. Read Matthew 24 and talk to them about only in this time of history could you see all theses prophecies coming true. Remind them it was written 2000 years ago.

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.

PROVERBS 22:6

We have also aloud not only Hollywood, but also the government to push their immoral values in the public schools, with Planned Parenthood saying abortion is just a means of birth control and the LBGT organization pushing their diversity agenda in schools, to the point where they want to do away with title of boy and girl. They want open bathrooms and dressing rooms. Everyone is welcomed, all but God with His values and morals. It’s time to get these special interest groups out of our schools and get back to education.

He created them male and female, and blessed them
and called them Mankind in the day they were created.

GENESIS 5:2

As Christians we are not to hate or judge others, only God can judge, but that does not mean we are to keep silent and let them take our freedom of speech or religion away from us and most of all our children.

They will give an account to Him who is ready
to judge the living and the dead.

1 PETER 4:5

Feel free to share this.

Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

JOHN 8:36

TRUMPET OF GOD




 
TRUMPET OF GOD

The earth is covered with a cloud
The trumpet of God is heard aloud

Only His will hear a voice
All the angels will rejoice

Jesus we can hear you call
Claim Your children one and all

It’s only you we glorify
Up to you we will fly

Seven years God’s wrath will pour
Destroying evil to its core

We’ll return with Jesus and sing
Praises to our Lord and King
February 19, 2018

Sing praises to God, sing praises!
Sing praises to our King, sing praises!

PSALM 47:6

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven
with a shout, with the voice of an archangel,
and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in
Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive
and remain shall be caught up together with them
in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17

Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection.
Over such the second death has no power,
but they shall be priests of God and of Christ,
and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

REVELATION 20:6

RAPTURE OF THE BRIDE

THE BRIDE WILL NOT BE HERE

God’s word made it quite clear, we will face tribulations in this world, that the rain falls on the just and the unjust. The sun rises on evil and good. We can not get through this life without troubles, suffering, natural disasters or loss of a loved one.
45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven;
for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good,
and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

MATTHEW 5:45

33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer,
I have overcome the world.”

JOHN 16:33

For, in fact, we told you before when we were with you
that we would suffer tribulation, just as it happened, and you know.

1 THESSALONIANS 3:4

We know Paul suffered great tribulations before he was killed, as all the apostles did. But many Christians realize that we are now living in the end times, the beginning of sorrows, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. The entire planet is groaning and laboring also. We can see this by all the volcanoes that have erupted, the storms are stronger, and the earthquakes have also gotten stronger too. 
All these are the beginning of sorrows.

MATTHEW 24:8

22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors
with birth pangs together until now. 23 Not only that, but we also
who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within
ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption,
the redemption of our body.

ROMANS 8:22-23

God said the destruction come on them, they will not escape. He did not say on us, His believers. His wrath falls on all those who did not believe and but their trust in Jesus. We will not be here. But we the saints will return with Jesus when He executes judgment on this ungodly world.

For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord
so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!”
then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant
woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness,
so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:2-4

14 Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these
men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints,
15 to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them
of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way,
and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”

JUDE 14-15

As evil spreads we can see God is warning us that soon He will pour out His wrath on this evil ungodly world which He calls the great tribulation. The seven year tribulation is only for those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The true believers in Jesus will not be here, Jesus came to save us from God’s wrath, so He will take (rapture) His bride off this earth before God pours out His wrath. Only true believers in Jesus will be counted worthy to escape the tribulation.

36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted
worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass,
and to stand before the Son of Man.

LUKE 21:36

10 and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead,
even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.

1 THESSALONIANS 1:10

How do we know this?  First, if you believe Jesus is the bridegroom and the church is the bride. God our Father will not pour His wrath on us, His Son’s bride, His children. If you believe you will be here during the tribulation, that means not only is God pouring His wrath on you, but also on His Son’s body. And I know God loves His Son and us, and that He will never do that. We the bride will be gone.  
29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend
of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices
greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice.
Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled.

JOHN 3:29

For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy.
For I have betrothed you to one husband,
that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

2 CORINTHIANS 11:2

one God and Father of all, who is above all,
and through all, and in you all.

EPHESIANS 4:6

Second, we are told that Jesus is the head of the church and we are His body, we have His spirit living in us, we are joined to Him.

17 But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.

1 CORINTHIANS 6:17

24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my
flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ,
for the sake of His body, which is the church,

COLOSSIANS 1:24

23 For the husband is head of the wife,
as also Christ is head of the church;
and He is the Savior of the body.

EPHESIANS 5:23

22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head
over all things to the church, 23 which is His body,
the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

EPHESIANS 1:22-23

Third and foremost the reason we will not be here through the seven year tribulation is that Jesus came to save us from God’s wrath. People will ask, what makes us so special we will not have to go through the tribulation? Tell them the blood of Jesus Christ makes us that special. 

Much more then, having now been justified by His blood,
we shall be saved from wrath through Him.

ROMANS 5:9

10 and to wait for His Son from heaven,
whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus
who delivers us from the wrath to come.

1 THESSALONIANS 1:10

When we see these things happening know that Jesus is near, at the door. He knows your name and will lead His bride, you out by name, your redemption is near.
28 Now when these things begin to happen,
look up and lift up your heads,
because your redemption draws near.”

LUKE 21:28

To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice;
and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

JOHN 10:3

That is why, not only are we to spread His saving gospel to all nations, not all people, but all nations, but also the churches are to keep watch for His glorious appearing.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached
in all the world as a witness to all the nations,
and then the end will come.

MATTHEW 24:14

Watch therefore, for you do not know
what hour your Lord is coming.

MATTHEW 24:42

13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing
of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,

TITUS 2:13

Remember therefore how you have received and heard;
hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch,
I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know
what hour I will come upon you.

REVELATION 3:3

All these things are happening now.

For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and will deceive many.
But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled;
for such things must happen, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise
against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes
in various places, and there will be famines and troubles.
These are the beginnings of sorrows.

MARK 13:6-8

Therefore we know the rapture is our hope, what we are looking forward to, His appearing will be glorious, but His return at the end of the tribulation, when He sets up His kingdom, all people of the earth will mourn at His coming. For they will have no hope as they stand before Jesus, their Judge.
 
Preach the Word
I charge you therefore before God and
the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and
the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:
 
2 TIMOTHY 4:1
 
Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be
condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door!
 
JAMES 5:9
 
Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him,
even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn
because of Him. Even so, Amen.
 
REVELATION 1:7   

These are two separate events, first, His appearing to rapture His church. Jesus Himself comes for His bride.
 
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God.
And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17

And second, His return to set up His kingdom. When He sends His angels to gather those who became believers through the tribulation.

31 And He will send His angels with a great sound
of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect
from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

MATTHEW 24:31

For God to pour out His wrath on the church of believers, the bride of Christ who has His Holy Spirit living in them would mean that God is pouring His wrath out on Himself. Jesus made it quite clear that He is in the Father, we are in Him, and He is in us. We are all joined together as one. We will not be here during the seven year tribulation.

20 At that day you will know that I am in My Father,
and you in Me, and I in you.

JOHN 14:20

29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes
and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. 30 For we are
members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones.

EPHESIANS 5:29-30

13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us,
because He has given us of His Spirit.

1 JOHN 4:13

IN GOD'S KINGDOM


TO BE WITH YOU

I just can’t believe it
So I look to see
If you’ll come through the door
Then come and hold me

My lonely heart breaks
A little each day
But I know the Lord
Is leading my way

So many memories
To carry me through
I pray everyday
To be with you

We made a promise
In death or in life
I know in my heart
I’ll be forever your wife

Now I pray over and over
Please Jesus come
Then we’ll be together forever
In God’s kingdom 
November 9, 2017
 
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God.
And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17

WHY TERRIBLE THINGS HAPPEN


WHY TERRIBLE THINGS ARE HAPPENING

People will ask, if there is a God, why would He allow these terrible things to happen? The answer is God gave us the gift of free will. So why is the happening?  We need to look at our government and how they have forced God out of every aspect of life in America. God is no longer welcomed in government, public schools, in public parks, and if you believe in God, they will try and force you to bow to their anti-God will or punish you with jail, fines, or even put you out of business. And that is why God’s blessings are leaving this country and these are only a few of the examples why.

Abortion: God told us that by taking an innocent life you will be cursed.

Keep yourself far from a false matter; do not kill the
innocent and righteous. For I will not justify the wicked.

EXODUS 23:7
 
25 ‘Cursed is the one who takes a bribe to slay an
innocent person.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’

DEUTERONOMY 27:25

We have raised generations who believe killing their unborn child is acceptable if that child would interfere with their life style. And through abortion we in this world have killed or murdered 54 million children.

13 “You shall not murder.

   EXODUS 20:13   

So now we have generations who have no respect for human life. They cared more over a lion being shot, than Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts. God knows the mind and hearts of mankind. Children are a heritage and reward from God for our future and now we wonder why things are becoming so terrible since we have allowed 54 million children to be aborted in this world.

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.

PSALM 127:3

God also made it quite clear in His word on where He stands on homosexuality. He made Sodom and Gomorrah an example for generations to come of His judgments. God goes as far as calling it an abomination.

22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.

LEVITICUS 18:22

and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes,
condemned them to destruction, making them an example
to those who afterward would live ungodly;

2 PETER 2:6

as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar
manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality
and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example,
suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

JUDE 7

Because they rejected God and His word, He will allow them to go blindly down their destructive path.

40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts,
Lest they should see with their eyes,
Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,
So that I should heal them.”

JOHN 12:40    

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women
exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men,
leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another,
men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves
the penalty of their error which was due. 28 And even as they did not like to
retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind,
to do those things which are not fitting;

ROMANS 1:26-28

Once again our government took a stand against God and His people. Our government is promoting homosexuality and transgender life styles starting with kindergarten. The government knows if you want to control the minds of the people you must first train the children to your way of thinking. This they have done through our schools and universities. God warned us to train our children, but too many have handed training of their children over to someone else.

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.

PROVERBS 22:6

Without God’s blessings we will see stronger storms, our economy failing, or He will even allow our enemy to come in to destroy a sinful nation. God does this as a warning, but if our nation will repent of our sins, He also said He will heal our nation.

if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves,
and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
 
2 CHRONICLES 7:14

You will be punished by the Lord of hosts
With thunder and earthquake and great noise,
With storm and tempest
And the flame of devouring fire.

ISAIAH 29:6

19 Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord has gone forth in fury—
A violent whirlwind!
It will fall violently on the head of the wicked.

JEREMIAH 23:19

The liberal democrats and some republicans are doing their best to divide our country, by race, economics, and gender. The liberal democrats would rather destroy this country if they can not bring in their Godless nation. They want to control Americans body, soul, and mind.

17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them:
“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation,
and a house divided against a house falls.

LUKE 11:17   

We can see that many people see the government as their savior, with all the so called free stuff the government hands out. Free rent, free food, free medical and free phones. The problem here is many that are working can not afford the luxuries the government hands out to those who won’t work. God said if you will not work, neither will you eat. God requires you work and earn and eat your own bread, not to take from some one else’s labor. God requires man to work, He tells us six day you shall labor and work.

Six days you shall labor and do all your work,

EXODUS 20:9   

10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this:
If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 11 For we hear that there
are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner,
not working at all, but are busybodies.

2 THESSALONIANS 3:10-11    

We can see their goal is to cut God out of America and to silence all Christians. They want you to depend on them for all your needs, not God. Like Canada, they want God’s word labeled as hate speech and anyone quoting God’s word charged with a hate crime.

In Canada 83 of Ontario’s 107 MPPs passed Bill 89 unanimously, it stops Christians from adopting or fostering children because of their beliefs on marriage. Now if you mention the name of Jesus other than cursing, they look at you with hatred in their hearts. We can no longer keep silent.

22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake.
But he who endures to the end will be saved.

MATTHEW 10:22   

18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not
of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

JOHN 15:18-19

God warned us that in the last days all this would happen. That all God calls good they will call evil, and all that God calls evil, they now call good.

20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

ISAIAH 5:20   

Perilous Times and Perilous Men
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud,
blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving,
unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
having a form of godliness but denying its power.
And from such people turn away!

2 TIMOTHY 3:1-5

As Christians we must stand on God’s word and His commandments first and foremost. We follow man’s law as long as they don’t go against God’s. We are joined to God through Jesus Christ, who has given us God’s Holy Spirit as our guarantee we are His. He lives in us and nothing can separate us from Him.

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish;
neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father,
who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to
snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 I and My Father are one.”

JOHN 10:27-30   

21 Now He who establishes us with you in Christ
and has anointed us is God, 22 who also has sealed us
and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

2 CORINTHIANS 1:21-22   

Our mandate from God is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. You can believe it or not, the choice is yours. But know this; no one including the government will keep us silent.

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world
as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
 
MATTHEW 24:14

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel
to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved;
but he who does not believe will be condemned.

MARK 16:15-16   

Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name
under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
 
ACTS 4:12

We must fight the good fight and finish the race by keeping the faith and confessing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life,
to which you were also called and have confessed
the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

1 TIMOTHY 6:12 

I have fought the good fight,
I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

2 TIMOTHY 4:7 

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.

JOHN 14:6

We (Christians) were not put here to judge the world. Jesus Christ will do that. We are to show the world the love of Christ, and that through Him one comes to repentance and receives the forgiveness of sin.

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness,
but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish
but that all should come to repentance.

2 PETER 3:9
