HELLYWOOD AND AWARD NIGHTS

Image result for nothing imperfect shall enter heaven bible

A TV award winning show was on during the week and the hosts publicly blasphemed the name of Jesus Christ. They said and I quote….” only republicans and ex-crack heads say thank-you to Jesus Christ” this and among other distorted and horrible remarks, were witnessed by a large live audience made up of Hollywood stars who clapped and laughed at all this and witnessed by home viewers covering a large world demography   Click right utube link to award night

I was so offended by this, that they would reduce Jesus Christ who sacrificed his life for our salvation to a joke, something to laugh at and to be used for entertainment. SHAME ON THEM!!!!

I know who I am and where I am going. One might say that not everybody believes. Sure! God doesn’t force Himself upon anyone and He has given us all a free will. Yes, but an evil, a sin has still be committed and worse, a sin that spans across a wide demography.  God makes it possible for everyone to find Him. At the end, there will be no excuse.  But judgement day will come for all and what will God say? The first thing He will say is ….”what have you done with my Son Jesus Christ who sacrificed his life for you, so that you may be saved?”

We will all have to answer this question and we will all be judged according to the faith and works we have done in Jesus’ name.

So then, wouldn’t one rather be judged by God who is the almighty, all loving all knowing, all forgiving God for all mankind,  rather than be judged by men who are flawed, biased, indiscriminate and judgmental????  In Revelation 21: 27 it says….” nothing imperfect shall enter heaven

Before Jesus, there was no heaven, Jesus made it possible for us to enter into God’s kingdom- Jesus the mediator who makes the impossible possible through His death and resurrection is what we should all aspire to.

We should not be toying with our salvation. Salvation is for eternity!

PRAYER:

Father in Heaven,

Please help those of little or no faith grow in love and understanding of the gift of Your Son Jesus Christ, who lived and sacrificed His life so that we may be saved. Please make us worthy of the glory of heaven, through Your Son Jesus Christ we pray.  AMEN!

RELIGION AND POLITICS – WHY SEPARATE THEM?

We seem to be moving very fast at this particular point in time, with bills for euthanasia and assisted suicide, marriage equality, radical gender programmes, abortion etc…..with all these issues, who is the best at deciding what is righteous and what is bad for all of mankind? What is best for our spiritual well being?

Laws of state that govern us do not take into account what God wants of us.  What our obligation is in upholding God’s laws. God’s laws are there to protect us from getting into more strife. Laws of state have the potential to grow into something really sinister, land us into more strife and problems that affect others. You can’t remove the human element from all these, lack of monitoring and enforcement from the authorities have the potential for abuse.

Just look at our track record into some of the areas such as marriage, family law-divorce and child protection, jail sentencing and bail for criminals etc….

What is the answer to all this? The answer is in Mark 12:17

What would the church know about the economy and fiscal policy?                              What would the state know about our spiritual well being? What would the state know about salvation and the afterlife?

As Jesus stated in Mark 12:17

Let the experts do their job and leave the matters of spirituality to God. God wants to save us, God wants us to go to Him when this life ends,  God wants for your inheritance in heaven. God can veto any or all of man’s laws. This world and everything in it belongs to Him.

The spirit of the passage (Mark 12:17) requires us to regard the rights of all beings as sacred, and to give to them all that is theirs.

I. What is due to God? Or what are the things, the property of God, which our Saviour here requires us to render to Him? “The earth is the Lord’s,” etc. Of course we, and all that we possess, are God’s property. More particularly-

1. Our souls with all their faculties.

2. Our bodies.

3. Our time.

4. All our knowledge and literary acquisitions.

5. Our temporal possessions.

6. Our influence.

He, then, who withholds from God any of these things, or any part of them, does not comply with the precept in the text.( Courtesy Studylight.org. )

So, God can veto any or all of man’s laws. He has spoken in the bible, we should follow Jesus’ example and allow Him to guide us through our heaven journey because this life is so short and eternity……  well…………….I still find it hard to fathom, but as for me, I would rather the pain now for the gain later……

DON’T BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU!!!!! THAT’S WHAT MY MAMA TAUGHT ME.

I LIGHT A CANDLE FOR ALL THOSE POOR PEOPLE IN NICE AND FOR ALL WESTERNERS AFFECTED BY ALL THIS TRAGEDY!!!!slow_burning_virtual_prayer_candle

                                         Below is part of ANDREW BOLT’S report                                                                     SATURDAY, 16TH JULY- HERALD SUN REPORT -COLUMN                         We cannot keep living in this fear”

We in the West cannot live like this. We cannot keep living in this fear of catching a plane, standing in a crowd or even opening our mouths.

We cannot keep making excuses for these attacks — in New York, Paris, Brussels, Bali, Sydney, Melbourne, Boston, London, Madrid, Orlando and dozens more of our cities.

Nor can we keep letting in carriers of a faith whose most dogmatic believers wish to ­destroy us.

What madness is this “tolerance” of ours that we deem it rude to even discuss the warlike religion that licenses our destruction and demands an end to our most cherished ­liberties?

And if our politicians will not speak frankly and protect us from Islam, watch out for a civil war. A frightened public will not put up with this for much longer and will defend themselves.(read more in today’s Herald Sun)

Good on you Andrew Bolt for having the boldness and sincerity to speak the truth!

Why is it that some Muslims become Islamists and some Islamists turn to violence?

Andrew Bolt has said….. “We don’t need any more hate preachers in our country.” I don’t even know why they are allowed to set foot in this country? Why is it that they have all this freedom? Their views are offensive to our way of life, to our liberties. It’s become so big, it’s grown to world status and yet we have to keep quiet because we may offend them.   …… ISIS, also known as ISIL, stands for the Islamic State In Iraq and The Levant and Islamic State. So both radicals and ISIS are fighting in the name of Islam, this philosophy has become widespread and what are their leaders doing about it? No much by the looks of things! Why don’t they do more to stop the radicalisation?

I am a product of migration…..second generation that is…..my parents taught me not to bite the hand that feeds you…..We didn’t expect any handouts, we just came so that we could work hard and better ourselves. We are so grateful and respectful that Australia has given us all that and to many more other migrant families I know. So, I have to quote JFK who preached out of love for his country, saying not to expect your country to hand things to you on a platter . “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” 

Right now as I write, there are christian volunteers and religious serving in the Middle East who are been persecuted, christian churches destroyed and we have to keep quiet because we may offend. I don’t see much been done to protect the christian volunteers and religious in those countries!!!! For the election both parties didn’t even promise that they would treat this as a priority! Yet refugees have to be taken care of, Fine!!!! Where’s the justice then???

burning_virtual_prayer_candleIn times of fear, it is important to remember that God is in control. Trust in God and your fear will fade.                                                                                                             I PUT MY TRUST IN GOD NOT PEOPLE!!!!!

Here are some bible verses to help when fear and terror strikes:

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7

“God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.” Psalm 46: 1-2

“When you lie down, you will not be afraid; Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet. 25 Do not be afraid of sudden terror, Nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes; 26 For the Lord will be your confidence, And will keep your foot from being caught.” Proverbs 3:24-26

Pray and hope for yourself and then for the person down the road

Today I asked God to show me how I can be a blessing to others. So I went to the the shopping centre and I had noticed a dramatic change in one of the stores. It wasn’t vibrant and popping with colour, the shelves looked sparse and the person behind the counter was not who I remembered. While I was browsing, I heard the person behind the counter talk to one of his regulars, it wasn’t a comfortable conversation but he told the customer that he was closing shop.

 

Well, I have been doing prayer healing for four years now, so when I heard this, my heart leapt and my immediate response was to reach out to the owner. So I did, I asked him what was happening and he told me his sad story. He told me that he bought the business and the papers were all legitimate and after the trial run, everything looked fine but apparently they weren’t. Business was not as it seemed, he couldn’t pay the rent, the centre management was on his back and that he was on the verge of losing his house. He told me that he had been a good person all his life, worked as a teacher for many years and this was his life change. I asked him if he was a praying man and he said no! I told him he had nothing to lose. He replied saying that he didn’t feel right or deserving, that he shouldn’t ask God at this point.

I told him that it’s exactly at this point that he should get on his knees and surrender to God. God knows all His children, especially during difficult times He expects us to draw near to Him.

In God’s realm there is no present, past or future, your life was mapped out for you, at birth. God has treasures stored up for you, all you have to do is claim them. “What better time to claim them than now,” I said. “But God doesn’t know me,” he said.

My point to all this is that God knows us by the hairs on our heads, He knows all our coming and goings, he knows us up close and personal. He wants us to ask and to ask big!!!!!! Isn’t He the God who breathed life into us? Isn’t He the God who  gave us the earth, mountains, sea etc…? The God who parted the Red Sea? The God who raised Jesus to new life? So what is the difficulty in God paying someone’s bills? Helping a person in  need? It’s a piece of cake for Him and you don’t even have had to earn it! Allow God to be your Father! What does a father want for his children?  He wants the best for them and the opportunity to help them when asked.  Prayers are answered when they’re prayed. All you have to do is have faith. GOD COULDN’T HAVE MADE IT ANY EASIER!!!!! We are children of the most high God, to a God of impossibilities who makes all things possible.

I  left saying that I would pray for him and then asked God to take care of business. That night I thanked God for the opportunity of serving Him because my life has been blessed in so many ways and it’s all because of Him.

Humble yourself before God and He will give you the desires of your heart.

 

 

 

 

WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE????

The short answer is………………………………………. because sin is in the world. 

Pain, diseases, suffering, natural disasters, assaults, death etc……..The first question that most people ask is “WHY?” Why is there so much pain? Why is our world in chaos?

God gave Adam dominion over the world (Gen. 1:28). When he rebelled against God, he set in motion an entire series of events and changed the very nature of man and creation. Both were affected by sin. Creation was no longer a paradise, but bore thorns and thistles (Gen. 3:17-18;Rom. 8:22). People became sinful (Rom. 5:12Eph. 2:3), who were haters of God (Rom. 3:9-12), etc. The world is not the way that God created it.More often, why doesn’t God simply end the pain? We know that we will experience and encounter pain over and over again.

No one escapes the struggles of life. Our goodness or our faith do not make us immune from suffering. Yes! God allows “bad” things to happen!  How could there be a God who allows so much evil to take place?

The pressures of work, family, friends, schedules, deadlines, wants, needs, and fears all flood our minds and crowd out God. We then become distracted and more likely to fall into sin.

Holley Gerth

We are free people, not puppets on a string. God has given us free will. God has given us the power to choose. We have the choice to be with Him or without Him. Yet when things go wrong we blame God. We cannot have it both ways. Life isn’t easy, but God promised us that it will be worth it. Suffering is the result of human sin, all are vulnerable to the effects of sin in the world. But there will come a day when the Lord will return and cleanse this world of all sin and all suffering.

God is everywhere. Sometimes tragedy and/or pain can be the catalysts that allow us to turn off the noise of everyday life and focus on God.

God loves us and grieves with us in our pain when “bad things” happenGod’s role is to be by our side, to understand us, to comfort us, to “lead us beside still waters… and restore our souls” (from Psalm 23) in the metaphorical “Valley of Death” which we face everyday, God’s role is to help us heal on a daily basis- help us collect the pieces broken by experience- help us become whole again, whole as we were intended and created by our loving God. God never promised that life would be without its painful moments.

God’s presence may not be packaged in the way we expect.

God has given us His Son Jesus Christ to help us fight the evil in the world. Jesus is only a prayer away. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  How powerful is that? But it’s when we think we are above prayer, when we think we control our own destiny that we suffer the most. 

The word of hope is that our future is in the hands of God. Love, courage and hope sum up the resources we have to face our personal tragedies and pain. Was it in a stranger’s smile, a new flower, an e-mail message, scripture, and words in a hymn? Could it be possible that I have helped others know God’s presence today?What might I or could I have done to help God’s presence be felt by others? Could I have done more? 

God through His grace wants to draw us closer to Him. When we’ve allowed ourselves to be open to God, we see God all around us, in other people, in acts of kindness, in the faith of another fellow Christian, in our children, and in family members and friends We can feel His presence in our stillness, in nature, in meditation, in scripture, and especially in prayer.

Most of all we find the face of God in the tears, the hugs, and the words of comfort others bring to us in times of great sorrow and pain.

RIGHT TO LIFE – IT’S GOD’S PURPOSE AND CREATION

No child is a mistake, every child has a right to life, every child is a gift from God and in everything there  is a purpose under heaven.

Abortion is the knowing destruction of the life of an unborn child. But this is only part of the story as abortion also hurts the woman involved. Abortion affects women physically, emotionally, and spiritually- By Alissia Andres

Read about The Physical And Spiritual Effects Of Abortion, an article from a recent issue of our newsletter, Central Illinois Life News.

2.1 psychological Effects of Abortion

It has been discovered that there are many emotional aspects that can effect the psychological well being of women who undergo an abortion. These emotions include guilty feelings, anxiety, depression, loss, anger, and even suicide. Clinical research has found that when women are in trusting, sharing relationships, they report deep seated feelings of exploitation over their abortion experience. (Alliance Action Inc 1993, 1) A woman reports, “I was unprepared for the maze of emotions that hit me after I had the procedure. Instead of feeling relieved, I was awash in anxiety and confusion.” (Hutchison 1997, 23).

2.1.1 Symptoms of Post-Abortion-Syndrome Disorder

There is a large spectrum of symptoms of this disorder. In order to diagnose that a woman has Post-Abortion-Syndrome she must be completely honest with herself, and with the feelings that she has. Many women report strong feelings of guilt and confusion, as well as loss and many other emotions. In Canadian study by Dr. Ian Kent, many women feel deep loss and pain for the child that “should have been”. (Kent 1989, 6) One woman reports the wave and confusion she went through, ” I felt an incredible sense of loss that plunged me deeper into a state of confusion.” (Hutchison 1997, 23) There are extreme cases, in which the diagnosis is very easy. Such cases include a seventeen-year-old girl who developed lethargy, malaise, and vomiting. Doctors were unable to reach any conclusion about condition, then on the anniversary of her abortion she experienced overt psychosis. Mental examination revealed hallucinations, as well as psychotic thought processes. Guilt is probably the most common symptom of a Post-Abortion-Syndrome, which can lead to depression, complexes, or fear of infertility and of sex. (Alliance Action Inc. 1996, 1)

NO SIN IS UNFORGIVABLE UNDER GOD

YES!!!! THAT’S RIGHT!!!!! 

IF YOU ACCEPT GOD AND HIS SON JESUS CHRIST, SINCERELY!


In Matthew 12:31 Jesus says, “Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.”

Looking at the Catechism of the Catholic Church, blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the “deliberate refusal” to accept God’s mercy and forgiveness (no. 1864). Six species of this sin have been identified over time as (1) Despair; (2) Presumption; (3) Impenitence or a firm determination not to repent; (4) Obstinacy; (5) Resisting divine truth known to be such; and (6) Envy of another’s spiritual welfare.

GOD WILL GIVE YOU EVERY CHANCE AND OPPORTUNITY TO ACCEPT HIS LOVE AND MERCY BUT IF YOU DON’T ACCEPT IT SINCERELY, THEN THAT’S UNPARDONABLE!!!!

SALVATION IS OFFERED TO ALL BY THE GRACE OF GOD. HOWEVER, NOT ALL SINS ARE THE SAME THERE IS ATONEMENT TO BE MADE BEFORE HEAVEN

(REVELATION 21:27) Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Book of Life – What is it?
The Book of Life (also called The Lamb’s Book of Life) is a record containing the names of those who have overcome sin through accepting Jesus as Christ  In other words, the Book of Life is the names of the redeemed—those who will live with God forever in heaven.
