Back to the days when Noah began a New Civilization from humble beginnings in Turkey

Unique to scripture are the symbols connected with the parables off Jesus

From the humble beginnings of life as those who survived The Flood, began to trickle down from the Mountains of Ararat we have the family of Noah. It’s a strange encounter with GOD designing a giant ship to transport pairs of animals with Noah and his family, to a new beginning on a landscape destroyed by the ravages of our earth being one year underwater.

The accounts of a world wide flood have tempted man into asking, “What made the Grand Canyon?” and “Where did life begin?”

Twenty years ago we could not ask the question, “Are their other signs of “life” beyond our planet.” Just nineteen years ago, another alien who lived on earth, walked with man, left an embedded message like a note found a bottle that washed upon the shores of America.

One thousand, nine hundred and twenty five years ago in A.D. 95 The Prophet, Jesus of Nazareth, born in Bethlehem, whose birth brought a new perspective to the word, HOLY, SACRED and JUSTIFIED.

Today, if you can image 7 angels moving out of heaven with an “old” message written in a day for year, prophetic “time” caused Bible students to pause and consider the ancient city off BABYLON again.

Daniel stands up to explain the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 2. A great image of a man, with a head of gold, a chest of silver, a thigh of mixed metals that made brass, and last a kingdom like iron shows the rise and fall of Kingdoms we now call: Babylon, Persia, Greece and the two legs of Rome: One a nation devoted to worship of the gods, the other a Holy Roman Empire with worship to a man.

Recently Iran has opened the ancient sites of Persia, to show the wide extent of days when Daniel began to rise to power because of his ability to save the the Empire from false prophets and pride men eager to destroy the king and run his affairs.

With GODS KINGDOM with its guests of seen and unseen angels ready to do His bidding “if” we ask, and Satan and his seen and unseen angels ready to “destroy” we have GOD as our witness, that we now know good and evil.

Rev 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. (Some Bibles do have the name for Satan in English. It is the same in Hebrew and Greek. Satans name is THE DESTROYER in Revelation 9:11

On 9-11-2001 GODS SON, PROVED, HE IS WORTHY, to OPEN THE 7th and final “seal” on that 7 “sealed” scroll, when Daniel would be opened, in the last of the LAST DAYS.

This book is dedicated to every prophet who went before us, to study and search the scriptures daily to find the HOPE FOR OUR WORLD.

The two words that were taught a handful of children that are Bible Symbols created in 95 A. D. when “waters” becomes a “sea of humanity” with people, multitudes of people, languages, and mixed nations in Revelation 17:15.

When the 7 angels departed from Heaven in the constellation Orion, the sets of telescopes began to pick up a “wave” of signals. This “image” of “nothing” creating disturbances in the heavens has been called an “imaginary” ….unknown….Planet X.

With God and His angels capable of being unseen and still possess “weight” that can make planets orbit in circles while moving in space, gives scientists a change to explore for more.

While humans below detest “chaos” and”confusion” The Prophet Jesus designed a human sacrifice, would ultimately be the final need for any “sacrificial” lamb to be slain.

If I were to ask you, a vegetarian living in Heaven, “Would like to “sacrifice” the pets of God, so you could eat them?” Would you consider “sacrificing” a cow, goat or pig?

Now consider the fate of Cain, when he loved the lambs who followed him around heaven like your pet dog? Why would you not want the neighbor to eye your pet “dog” as their next choice of food? GOD knew men would find the blood of the beasts strangely satisfying. So the death of Cain, the first born to Adam and Eve, also included the “death” of human being.

Without a doubt, we have overlooked the “feelings” of Cain for his beloved pets. And it comes as a “disturbing” fact, to see men, wish to drain the blood of lamb, to “be cleansed from all unkind, unrighteous deeds and thoughts.”

However to some who have become numb with joy in eating meat, to others the thought of killing their pet, is disturbing. And when the “sacrificial lamb” came from “symbol” to “reality” in 31 A.D. with the death of Jesus Christ, its image is distasteful to many today.

SCAPEGOAT

The yearly “cleansing” of the “hearts and minds” of Jews on Yom Kipper, ended with a delightful release of “Satan” the one chosen by lots, to escape punishment, and sent out to roam in the Arabia…or desert is a fitting ending to how God is now placing “the sins we confess” on the HEAD OF THE DEVIL. Satan now knows his end is near. He goes around like a roaring lion, who wishes to “eat” the souls he has held captive by his evils of destroying our brains to “not think”.

When you confess “your sins” GOD is faithful to forgive you from all unrighteousness.

So, let’s CONFESS…there are things we do not want to do, or say and we wish to let GOD KNOW, He can put those evil temptations that Satan has put into our heads, on the HEAD OF THE SCAPEGOAT, who is heading for a bath in the hot pressed burning volcanoes of the earth.

More tomorrow the Lord willing and creek don’t rise…connie over and out. unedited and you can critique to your hearts desire. Your comments are welcome here.

FREEDOM UNDER GOD IS BEING JUDGED!

“And the chief captain answered, With a great sum obtained I this freedom. And Paul said, ‘But I was

CROWN HIM, who made the Sun, Moon and Stars! He see's our hearts and knows our mind is for Freedom that ends the great controversy over good and evil, and ends the live of Lucifer and his angels!
CROWN HIM, who made the Sun, Moon and Stars! He see’s our hearts and knows our mind is for Freedom that ends the great controversy over good and evil, and ends the life of Lucifer and his angels!

free born.’ “(Acts 22:28)

Will we give up our freedom to be under a “man” 666? Or will we defend our right to be, to live, to bow down and worship our God in Heaven, 777?

This is not about, “What will we do to defend Israel, or promote peace!”  It is about our personal choice to be defended by God’s Angels and trust in Him 100% because Jesus has conquered “death” and we will live again, to glorify His Name and Kingdom of Truth!

GOD BLESS AMERICAN and people everywhere who fought with the Sword of Truth!

I AM BORN FREE!  I AM BORN TO BE FREE!  I AM BORN TO BE A CHILD OF GOD! Praise the Lord I have a choice to be defended by His personal body guards!

Dare someone will say, “I AM Loyal to God and HIS KINGDOM and this is not treason against USA!

If everyone would choose to not bear false witness about Jesus and God, we would not be in this mess! They are friends, aliens from outer space, who are on the side of FREEDOM within boundaries, for Heaven is Holy Society with dignity and respect for their Government and God! Jesus is the King of the Earth!

CROWN HIM, who made the Sun, Moon and Stars! He see's our hearts and knows our mind is for Freedom that ends the great controversy over good and evil, and ends the live of Lucifer and his angels!
CROWN HIM, who made the Sun, Moon and Stars! He see’s our hearts and knows our mind is for Freedom that ends the great controversy over good and evil, and ends the live of Lucifer and his angels!

Can a Kingdom be delivered in 3.5 days?

The yawning mouth of the Empty Tomb in the Garden in Jerusalem brings to mind the thought: many did not see the scene from the Mount of Olives, The Rock where Jesus prayed, The anxiety as Jesus wept while angels came to comfort Him. The time it takes to “recognize” the miracle of manGOD walking among us, is described by some as “It can’t be done. Jesus did not really die, he didn’t really come alive, He didn’t really return to heaven.” Revelation 11:11 is about to spring upon the World as the Greatest Miracle EVER TOLD in the darkest ages of earth’s history, when men would mock his name, divide his kingdom into pieces. Yet, a remnant remains of those closest to Jesus at The Passover Feast. When “they” remembered the “night” the “angel” passed over Egypt, killing the firstborn of those who did not place the “blood” of the sacrificial lamb, upon their door post.

Isaiah 29:10 For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.
Isa 29:11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:
I
sa 29:12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
Isa 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Isa 29:14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
Isa 29:15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
Isa 29:16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
Isa 29:17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?
Isa 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
Isa 29:19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
Isa 29:20 For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:
Isa 29:21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.
Isa 29:22 Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale.
Isa 29:23 But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.
Isa 29:24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

The gods of Egypt: where are they? The gods of Babylon, Medio-Persia, Greece and Rome, where are they? Do they “rest” in their tombs?

Isaiah 14:3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,
Isa 14:4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!
Isa 14:5 The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.
Isa 14:6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.
Isa 14:7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.
Isa 14:8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.
Isa 14:9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
Isa 14:10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?
Isa 14:11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.
Isa 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Isa 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Isa 14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
Isa 14:16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
Isa 14:17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?
Isa 14:18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.
Isa 14:19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.
Isa 14:20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.
Isa 14:21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.
Isa 14:22 For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD.
Isa 14:23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the LORD of hosts.

Is it possible for GOD to remove the “curse” of “death” from every soul who cries out : “GOD save me.”

Judge for yourself the children of Lucifer or the Sons and Daughters of GOD, under the leadership of Jesus Christ, who is now crowned the Prince of Peace, the true High Priest, given the Honor of the Highest Archangel to receive the honor due to Michael The Archangel, who fought Lucifer in heaven, and watched a third of the angels, follow him down to this last scene on earth.

The Last Great Controversy between G-O-D and Lucifer is over. “Babylon’s king is defeated, when you call upon the name of the Lord.”

Think not that I have come destroy but to save to the utmost all who call upon my name.

Joh 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Joh 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Joh 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Joh 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

It bears repeating:

John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Joh 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Joh 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Joh 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

With God there is no darkenss: He is The Light of our World.

P.S. When I began to follow the “light” of Gods Holy Spirit, it changed my life and those around me, noticed a difference. Now, the calling comes, to see “if” I am the one (with another) to lay down my life, knowing the prophecy says, in Revelation 11, that GOD can and will restore “us” to life, and give us new “makeover,” to fit us to live with “eternal life.”

Sounds like the chance of life time to fly like the angels, seen and unseen to give mankind a chance to know Jesus is real.

How can I not wish to help fulfill the prophecy of Jesus?

I must ask the Jews, “Who wrote the Revelation of Jesus Christ?” in 95 A. D. some 1925 years ago, on the island of Patmos, after the fall of “Jerusalem by Titus in 70 A.D. at the hands of the Holy Roman Empire? And who denied the Head of the Church is Jesus Christ, not a man?

They Constantly Ascend and Descend Heaven's Ladder

“And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven; and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. ” Genesis 28:12

I don’t mind if read and reread about this speck of a world, the heavenly universe manifests the greatest interest in. Yet we come in contact with the busy activity of our cities, we mingle with the multitude in the crowded thoroughfares, we enter marts of trade and walk the streets; and through all, from morning till evening, the people act as if business, sport, and pleasure were all there is to life, —as if this world were all there is to occupy the mind. How few contemplate the unseen agencies!

All heaven is intensely interested in the human beings who are so full of activity, and yet have no thought for the unseen. . .Sometimes the heavenly intelligence’s draw aside the curtain that hides the unseen world, that our minds may be withdrawn from the hurry and rush, and consider that there are witnesses to all we do and say, when engaged in business, or when we think ourselves alone. . .

These heavenly beings are ministering angels, and they frequently disguise themselves in the form of human beings, and as strangers converse with those who are engaged in the work of God. In lonely places they have been the companions of the traveler in peril. In tempest-tossed ships they have spoken words to allay fear and inspire hope in the hour of danger. Many, under the different circumferences, have listened to the voices of the leaders of armies. They have eaten at the humble board of families, and often have they appeared as weary travelers in need of shelter for the night. . .

Heavenly angels are co-operating with us in every good work, and thus earth is connected with heaven.

When I copy words written before my time by a woman who got up to write the words her angel gave her, and I think of the old rocking chair where her angel sat, to share and answer her questions, it brings me much peace of mind. Who has know these thoughts before me? What words would I ask my angel? How can I not but help to wish for kind words, to be given to me? And my questions compel me to seek these answers, after being riveted to the open trial of another human being, the President of the United States of America.

The seriousness of the hour grips my heart with a holy fear of who I follow. I have been compared to one who prostitutes herself to her GOD and I see that as a compliment, but saying “I am a Christian” and acting like one is something much harder to achieve.

Daniel and his three Hebrew friends found themselves in chaos and confusion in Babylon. On the plains of Babylon the lament of the Jews were about hanging their harps on the trees by the river. They could not sing and dance with joy to celebrate their plight of being captives in a foreign land. And the angels wept with them, as they begin to realize they had brought this curse upon themselves. The wandering Jews, with their violins, celebrations, food and dancing like the fiddler on the roof continue to mount the evidence of souls wishing for the day God would take them away to a Tree of Life, a heaven, beyond the stars, to land of endless days.

My grief is knowing how many people are hurting because they see good and they see evil. And in the “old age” of being with seniors, eating with seniors, watching the dates with the doctors come more often, the calendar slips by day by month then year. And we have nothing to fear for the future, except we forget how God has led us in the past.

May you gain the wisdom of your peers and find peace of mind at last for just. . .today.

He rides out on His White Horse

The signs of God Coming, from the Horse Head Nebula in Orion, with The Sun of Righteousness, and its galaxies, is not about a frightening GOD coming to DESTROY YOU or me. But, like the GOD who thundered, in the dark cloud, with the trumpet sound, on Mount Sinai, THE GOD, has a way of sending THE MESSAGE, I AM GOD and there is none other.

I would like to take my son and go to Jerusalem,

Where before we went to give, and not get.

Instead we asked if someone needed to be healed?

The young man showing us his ram’s horns, disappeared

He came back and said, “Follow me.”

The Money Changer at Jaffa Gate had a booth

In it sat a very large man, who could not lift up his right hand.

When he saw my son and I he said, “Massage it right here.”

Walter followed him to a chair without arms. ..

Without praying, without ado, Walter touched the area on his shoulder. . .

“I feel the heat” the Money Changer said. . .

And, he lifted his arm, it was healed,  we left

But, I had to come back to Jerusalem, and I did

Some months later, I asked him if he remembered me…

With a smile, I took his picture, waving with his right hand high…

Oh what a fool am I….the KINGDOM OF GOD HAS COME

Why are we not welcoming the GOD, who said, “You will do these miracles and more.”

I’ve never found a person in pain, who will refuse a prayer, for their suffering.

THE DOOR IS CLOSED TO ALL WHO NOT AVAIL THEMSELVES OF THE PLEASURE…

of allowing GOD TO SHOW UP…and heal…a broken hearts!

Thank you for allowing me freedom speech.

I have to smile. Yes, I did enjoy, watching GOD SHOW UP!

Why is it so hard to say, “May I pray for you?”

 

Even if mankind came from some primordial swamp: He or She must abide by some kind of moral resolutions towards each other and outward towards society.

FEED MY SHEEP

“Every soul is fully known to Jesus as if he were the only one for whom the Saviour died.   The distress of every one touches His heart.   The cry for aid reaches His ear.   He came to draw all men unto Himself.   he bids them, “Follow Me,” and His Spirit moves upon their hearts to draw them to come to Him.   Many refuse to be drawn.   Jesus knows who they are.   He also knows who gladly hear His call, and are ready to come under His pastoral care.  He says, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”   He cares for each one as if there were not another on the face of the earth.

“He calls His own sheep by name, and leads them out . . .And the sheep follow Him: for they know His voice.”  The Scripture says “Thou leddest Thy people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.”  Through the prophet, Jesus declares, “I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn thee.”   He compels none to follow Him.   “I drew them,” He says, “with cords of man with bands of love.” Ps 777:20, Jer 31:3; Hosea 11:4.

“It is not the fear of punishment, or the hope of everlasting rewards that leads the disciples of Christ to follow Him.  They behold the Saviour’s matchless love, revealed throughout His pilgrimage on earth, from the manger of Bethlehem to Calvary’s cross, and the sight of Him attracts, it softens and subdues the soul.   Love awakens in the heart of the beholders.   They hear His voice, and they follow Him.

“As the shepherd goes before his sheep, himself first encountering the perils of the way, so does Jesus with His people. “When He putteth forth His own sheep, He goes before them.”  The way to heaven is consecrated by the Saviour’s footprints.  The path may be steep and rugged, but Jesus has traveled that way;  His feet have pressed down the cruel thorns, to make the pathway easier for us.   Every burden that we are called to bear He himself has borne.

“Though now He has ascended to the presence of God, and shares the throne of the universe, Jesus has lost none of His compassionate nature.  Today the same tender, sympathizing heart is open to all the woes of humanity.   Today the hand that was pierced is reached forth to bless more abundantly His people that are in the world.  “And they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand.”

“However much a shepherd may love his sheep, he loves his sons and daughters more.”

When I read these passages of hope, love and understand by experience, where I have had to go . . .following his path. . .I never wish to see anyone I’ve known to have to face “themselves” like I have, and find “themselves” also in need of a Saviour…then I find, as I look back on my life…those ups and downs that made me frown at myself. . .were just what I needed to humble me.  And I got low enough to know, He had to take me where I would learn, to appreciate what all he has done for me, both good and bad, to humble me. Ain’t education grand? lol

Here I sit, with crickets chirping, the Who Owl hooting, the life and death struggle of garden plants ending their time of giving me fruit. And in this content stage of wondering, I surmise: I know nothing. Except tomorrow may be THE DAY HE COMES AGAIN, to show THE WORLD, He can and will, RAISE THE DEAD and TAKE THEM HOME, but not the ones who crucified Jesus.

Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
Dan 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Dan 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Pilate: The wishy washy man who thought he could flog Jesus, but the Jews said, “Crucify Him and let his blood (his death) be upon our heads.”

King Herod: Who tried to kill the prophet John the Baptizer, but saw in Jesus the same kind of man who say, “You should not be living with your brother’s wife.”

The duo High Priests, Father and Son: Who claimed, “One should die” to save us or we perish.

These three, were the leadership, of One Nation Under God, who crucified His Son.

My faith is not about “which kingdom will last”….GODS KINGDOM has a problem with rebellion and denying His Holy Spirit. So, I do not want to rebel against God, and vex His Holy Spirit, because he will turn against me and become my enemy.

Isa_63:10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.

The rise and fall of KINGDOMS, took place because folks did not expect Him, to turn and become their enemy.

I want to be on HIS SIDE in this great controversy between good and evil.

Bless You and may His face ALWAYS SHINE UPON YOU!

GOD ALLOWS AFFLICTION AND TRIALS Psalms 119:67 “Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.”

“The Lord estimates as of supreme value the holiness of His people, and He permits reverses to come upon individuals, upon families, and upon churches, that His people may see their danger, and humble their hearts before Him in repentance.  He will treat His backslidden ones with tenderness.  He will speak pardon to them, and clothe them with the garments of Christ’s righteousness.  He will honor them with His presence.

“In this, the great Day of Atonement, it is our duty to confess our sins and acknowledge God’s mercy and love in pardoning our transgressions.   Let us thank the Lord for the warnings He has given to save us from our perverse was.   Let us witness to His goodness by revealing a change in our lives.   If those to whom the Lord has sent reproof, warning them that they are not walking in His way, will repent, and with humility and contrition of heart make confession the Lord will surely receive them again into favor. . . .

“A season of great trial is before us.  It becomes us now to use all our capabilities and gifts in advancing the work of God.   The powers the Lord has given us are to be used to buildup, not to  discourage and to tear down. . . .In all ages of the church God’s appointed messengers have exposed themselves to reproach and persecution for the truth’s sake.   But wherever God’s people may be forced to go, even though, like the beloved disciple, they are banished to desert islands, Christ will know where they are, and will strengthen and bless them, filling them with peace and joy. . . .

“He will purify His church even as He purified the temple at the beginning and close of His ministry on earth.   All that He brings upon the church in test and trial comes that His people may gain deeper piety and more strength to carry the triumphs of the cross to all parts of the world.  He has a work for all to do.”

This quote for Ellen White p. 260 for September 10, in her morning watch book, SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD has been my companion as my sons grew up, we shared these words, each morning, as we ate breakfast together, all feet under the table.

Mrs. White is an inspiration to me, she understood, by experience what a profit she was to those who united their hearts with God in His work. Lately I took it to heart and I claimed THIS PROMISE:

Rev_3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

When I looked up the text to BUY OF ME GOLD TRIED IN THE FIRE, I did not know it was in Revelation.  But I do see, the conflicts going on all around me, in the signs in the GALAXY COMING OUR WAY, to take us HOME . . .in the fires, floods, earthquakes and the darkest spiritual understanding or lack of understanding….these things must come…to separate the wheat from the chaff.  It is both sad and enlightening, that God is purifying “us” to be “His Temple” where He can abide with me.

When I invited God to test me, purify me, make of me true gold, He answered my prayer!

You can LAUGH HERE! As I must LAUGH TOO!  I can’t think of time, when so many things in my life, must make me stop to THINK….what it takes to be at peace in the middle of a hurricane of troubles surrounding me…lol  YES, I can have peace in the eye of the hurricane! YES, I learned this before. Dark Clouds do have a silver lining, when the sun is behind them. I have the Sun of Righteousness in my heart. I pray today, its light comes as a blessing to you.

God Bless You and Keep You and May His Face Shine Upon YOU TOO!

DYING THIEF ACCEPTS CHRIST AS HIS SAVIOUR Luke 23:42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

Let_the_Little_Children_Come_unto_Jesus

“To the last of His work Christ is a sin-pardoner.  As deepest midnight, as the Star of Bethlehem was about to sink into oblivion, lo there shines amid the moral darkness with distinct brightness the faith of a dying sinner as he lays hold upon a dying Saviour.

Such faith may be represented by the eleventh hour laborers who receive as much reward as do those who have labored for many hours.   The thief asked in faith, in penitence, in contrition.  He asked in earnestness, as if he fully realized that Jesus could save him if He would.   And the hope in his voice was mingled with anguish as he realized, that if he did not, he would be lost, eternally lost.   He cast his helpless, dying soul and body on Jesus Christ.

He had heard Pilate declare, “I find no fault in him.” John 19:4.  He had marked His godlike bearing, and His pitying forgiveness of His tormentors. . . .Among the passers-by he hears many defending Jesus.  He hears them repeat His words, and tell of His works.   The conviction comes . . .to him that this is the Christ. . . .When condemned for his crime, the thief had become hopeless and despairing; but strange, tender thoughts now spring up.   He calls to mind all he has heard of Jesus. . . .He has heard the the words of those who believed in Jesus and followed Him weeping. . . .The Holy Spirit illuminates his mind, and little by little the chain of evidence is joined together.  In Jesus, bruised, mocked, and hanging upon the cross, he sees the Lamb of God, that takes away the sin of the world.   Hope is mingled with anguish in his voice as the helpless, dying soul casts himself upon a dying Saviour. . . .Quickly the answer came.   Soft and melodious the tone, full of love, compassion, and power the words:  Verily I say unto thee today, Thou shalt be with Me in Paradise. . . .To the penitent thief came the perfect peace of acceptance with God.”

These are not my words, but of the Prophetess sent to the Seventh Day Adventist Church, Ellen White, who preferred to be called a “messenger.”  In her writings, in her life, in her home and family, she was a “star” of light, a blessing, a mother, grandmother and writer inspired by the Holy Spirit. Her daily devotions SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD, has been an inspiration shared with sons on a daily basis. It was enough scriptures not to long, not to forceful, but just right, for growing boys to take time to meditate on the peaceful, kind words of Jesus Christ.

To my sons, has come back to me, those many memories of working together to get the work done, so we can play together and have fun. When they were very young, if they got finished with their bath, we would have time to crawl into bed, and I would read Roger and book. Dr. Scarry’s little books for kids, was about little worm, who taught my sons to say, “Please and Thank you.” Then when baby Walter came alone five years later, it was Roger who read to baby Walter at night after he took his bath. Those were the years, I wanted to be right there in bed with them, but I looked on…permitting the older to lead the younger.

When Roger became a father, he too, crawled into bed with his son, and he read to Caleb, and then they said their prayers, and turned off the light.

When you have parents, who care, who love to enjoy seeing from the eyes of child, the great big world of nature, there was never enough time for us to walk and talk, out there in Gods world as we saw all he made that was good, and we knew behind the evil, was something bad, and one day Jesus would come and end the reign of terror.
