my life is an open book of you dear Jesus

Image
a saint's life is meant to be an open book in which Jesus can clearly show himself to everyone we come into contact with. you are manifestly  an epistle of Christ , ministered by us, written  not  with  ink  but  by  the  Spirit  of the living God,  not  on tablets of stone  but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the  heart .  ( 2 Corinthians 3:3 ) Jesus asks us to come to the cross, he never drags us. When we agree,  He brings us to the cross, and when we come to the cross, God will prune us, shape us, refine us into the likeness of Christ Jesus our Lord.  for His glory, amen.  (Mark 8:34; John 15) My prayer:  Dear Lord in the name of Jesus, bring me to the cross.  Lord pour upon me your great mercy and grace to change me to where others see more of you and less of me.  Amen.

The Evils of Marie Stopes International and their kind who pose as reproductive health care and family planning

Image
Last week my beautiful, healthy daughter was born.  My wife and I are very happy parents. Eight months ago, when my wife discovered she was pregnant, she left the house in smiles, overjoyed at the prospects of being a new mother.....She went to a well known women's health clinic here in Nha Trang Vietnam known as " Marie Stopes International" for her first check up. When she came home she was crying. She had been told at the Marie Stopes Intl Clinic that our baby had no heart beat. The doctor quickly determined this by pressing a stethoscope to her belly a few times. Then the doctor told my wife, (commanded her)  that she must come back in a week and have the baby "removed" because it would be bad for her health if she kept the baby.  It took me 3 hours to convince her that the doctor was speaking lies from the DEVIL HIMSELF.  After showing her countless internet links and forums etc.. proving that a baby 's heartbeat sometimes is not heard

                                                                  Samey Nguyen Sheets                        Born: April 21, 2012, 7 AM,  Vietnamese Army Hospital 87,  Nha Trang, Vietnam to                                          Andrew Sheets and Tram Nguyen                                                                       My Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father I want to offer you a praise offering for this precious gift.  I want to dedicate this baby to you and for your service. I pray you grant me and her mother great grace and wisdom to be the proper parents to raise her in a manner pleasing to you. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen. I remember some 35 years ago when Ma Pura, that great woman of God, also known as a prophetess, told me in San Juan, Puerto Rico,  I'd have a child born to represent something very special in God's service and her birth would mark an event that I can't recall exactly. I was only about 22 years old at the time and quite overwhelmed

why do we have to seek the Lord

Image
Why Do We Have to Seek the Lord Deuteronomy 4:29. But if from there you  seek the LORD  your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul. Isaiah 55:6:  Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Hosea 10:12: .... For it is time to seek the Lord.. . Amos 5:4:   Seek Me and you shall live. Matthew 6:33:   Seek ye first the Kingdom of God. 1 Chronicles 22:19:   Now set your mind and heart to seek the Lord your God. Job 8:5: If you will seek God and plead with the almighty for mercy Matthew 7:7:   seek and you will find...................... To even the most casual observer, it's obvious God wants us to seek Him.     Definition of the word seek:   : to go in search of : look for b : to try to discover : to try to acquire or gain : aim at ...    The word seek seems to mean an effort is required; An attempt is made, meaning we have to work at it without a definite o

Why Atonement?

God's day of  reckoning, the day to settle accounts, to be judged according to our deeds, good and bad is coming soon.    Revelation 20:13;    Matthew 24:27    We hear it, read about it, even find ourselves wondering aloud about the end of  time.  The clock is ticking, the moments are soon approaching when time as we now know it will cease.  Although I strongly believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of those who belong to Christ Jesus, it's not my desire to go into rapture theories and the second coming of Christ -  there's too much division in the church over these issues.  But however, whenever the final day comes, all Biblical prophets are in agreement that the day is soon approaching. God's great and most righteous wrath is soon to be unleashed upon all inhabitants and each and every person dead or alive since the beginning of time is going to be judged.   There are simply two possibilities awaiting all of us:  A person is either a vessel of God's wrath

Be it unto me according to your word.

BE IT UNTO ME according to your word. Luke 1:38 When Mary said these words to the angel Gabriel, she wasn't talking about words she read in the Bible since of course the Bible wasn't written. She was talking about the words Gabriel spoke directly from God which told her she'd be the mother of Jesus Christ. God uses the written word in the scriptures to teach us the law, build our faith, and teach us more of himself. But it's the Holy Spirit who gives us all we need to BE. And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Comforter, to be with you for ever, even the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; you know him, for he dwells with you, and will be in you." John 14.16-17."But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you." John 14.26"But when the Comforter comes, who

Impeach President Barak Obama

Image
Please watch this you tube video..Shariamerica: Islam, Obama, and the Establishment www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErzxOz3Dzv8&feature=player_embedded#at=194 Sadly America is too far gone, done in, and beaten down by political correctness to really impeach this president who reeks of a Muslim and says America is no longer a Christian nation, but I pray to God the few Americans left who are not blinded will vote him out of office.Why would I say impeachment? Well, here's a video, Shariamerica: Islam, Obama, and the Establishment Clause, that really got me to open my eyes and see clearly how far this man has gone.. Hillary Clinton and General Petraeus are kowtowing to the muslims and spouting "the Holy Quran" but this President has gone way over the edge in his support of Islam in our country. check out the video... President Obama goes beyond supporting Islam in America he's pushing it... (ye shall know them by their fruit)For True Believers, Pray! (the Holy

None of these things move me...

Image
Acts 20:24:  But, none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself so that I may finish my race with Joy, and the ministry, which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. * Note 1 The apostle Paul knew from more than one prophecy and from the Holy Spirit telling him directly that he'd soon be coming into serious problems; i.e. bonds (arrest) and afflictions awaited him in Jerusalem. But he says in verse 24 that he's not moved.  Not moved and doesn't even count his life important. In other words, he doesn't care what happens to him as long as he finishes his race, spreading the good news of God's great mercy and grace of salvation through Jesus Christ. Psalms 16:8 the Psalmist said, "I have set the Lord always before my face, because the Lord is at my right hand. I shall not be moved."  On the surface, at first glance when reading the scriptures, I could, and in fact have said on more than on

A Bondservant to Jesus means what exactly?

Image
http://www.victorynetwork.org/Bondservant.html   Quote from the victorynetwork link:   "When you are alone with your thoughts, How do you think of yourself?  Do you think of yourself as a star waiting to be discovered, an orphan waiting to be found, the unappreciated waiting to be affirmed? Or do you see yourself as James did ,  A Bondservant of Jesus Christ   waiting to serve the master of your heart?. . .Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see the Kingdom of GOD!" I ran across the above link while searching for a greater understanding what the Holy Spirit had told me about a sister in Christ while writing her an email. She and her husband's lives are living testimonies of what I intuitively understood to be "bond-servants"   The Blogs I read are those of "bond-servants" who are sold out to Christ and go where ever that road leads. They've taken up their cross, laid their hand to the plow and don't look back. I'

Judas Goat leading the Sheep to Slaughter

Image
"A  Judas goat  is a trained  goat  used at a  slaughterhouse  and in general animal herding. The Judas goat is trained to associate with sheep or cattle, leading them to a specific destination. In stockyards, a Judas goat will lead sheep to slaughter, while its own life is spared. Judas goats are also used to lead other animals to specific pens and onto trucks. They have fallen out of use in recent times, and in fact are now illegal in the  European Union [1]  but can still be found in various smaller slaughterhouses in the rest of the world. The term is a reference to the  biblical  character Judas Iscariot."   (Source: Wikipedia) The Holy Spirit which is the Spirit of Truth has led me deeper into the study of goats and sheep. Refer to my blog Separating His Sheep from the Goats.   There are two kinds of sheep:  Those Sheep who are in the fold who have been gathered in God's arms and are saved by His great grace through Jesus Christ and the second type of she

Separate From His Brethren

Image
Since Adam and Eve (As Tim Shey noted) God has separated His people. I believe there is now a definite shift of sorts pushing God's remnant to separate. God's reviving a Nazarite Remnant that demands a demonstration of separation for these last days.  Please refer to my blog: " Separating His sheep from the goats" .  To reiterate the Separating His sheep from the goats blog, The Holy Spirit had given me a clear understanding that the bizarre and inexplicable events happening in my life were leading up to literal separation from close ties and business opportunities. Also,  I received confirmation in three very distinct ways and heard clearly in my audible thought that I would actually be separated before the actual event took place.     Today, it appears the Holy Spirit wants me to further study and understand separation. I was led to these nuggets of great value and power to encourage the saints.  Please read brother Keith Malcomson's   The Nazarite Remnant ht

Why forgetting the past is so important

Image
Brethren,  I do not count myself  to have  apprehended ; but  one thing I do ,  forgetting  those things which are  behind  and reaching  forward  to those things which are  ahead , I press toward the  goal  for the  prize  of the  upward call  of God in Christ Jesus. ( Philippians 3:13-14 ) Forgetting the past is the most important thing to grow in Christ and to fully accomplish our mission in life.  One of the greatest attacks of the enemy is bringing our past before us. And it doesn't only have to be our past failures but also wrongs done and even successes.   I've been struggling personally as of late with a wet, cold blanket of my past hanging on me. Jesus met me this morning in my devotional and led me deep into Philippians to discover the secret of ridding me of my past, past failures and wrongs done to me.  Wrongs done to me added to and magnified past failures. When dwelling on the successes I've had in the past , this only made things worse. At the top

Separating HIS Sheep from THE Goats

Image
God will separate all nations before him as a shepherd divides His Sheep from The Goats.  The Sheep will go to heaven and the Goats to eternal fire and damnation.  Matthew 25:32-46 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+25%3A31-46&version=KJV God has shown me recently by the Holy Spirit that the separation is clearly being made before us now in these days.    A few days ago I had experienced a series of very bizarre events that were inexplicable as to reasons I can't even begin to explain. The night following these events,  I was awakened about 4 am by an unsettled heart. I began praying in earnest and the Holy Spirit revealed over and over again these words:  "I'm separating my sheep from the goats. I'm separating my sheep from the goats." I know that when I can't get words out of my mind it is God  clearly giving me a clear message.   That morning I got up around 8 am and was doing my morning devotions and after opened

The One Necessary Thing by Bob Hoekstra

Day By Day By Grace Bob Hoekstra April 15, 2012 The One Necessary Thing That I may  know Him …Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but  one thing I do …" one thing is needed , and Mary has chosen that  good part , which will not be taken away from her."  ( Philippians 3:10 ,  13  and  Luke 10:42 ) Paul's  goal  in life was to  grow  in  intimacy  with the  Lord :  "That I may  know Him ."  He wanted to know the Lord so well that his life would be transformed into "resurrected living" in this spiritually lifeless world. He humbly admitted that he had not yet reached such spiritual maturity.  "Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended."  Thus, in light of his own need to grow, coupled with the excellence of the goal, he had a  single focus  in his life: " one thing I do ."  This one thing was his  ongoing quest  to  know  the  Lord more  and  more . This focused quest is similar to the hea

Walls Of Jericho by Tim Shey

walls of jericho by Tim Shey The Holy Spirit prompted me to post this blog from Tim Shey, High Plains Drifter Blog:I know there are others in the wilderness, besides me, who need these words today... http://www.wallsofjericho.50megs.com/High Plains Drifter Blog:http://tim-shey.blogspot.com "A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for."--William Shedd*****Faith/Revelation/ObedienceJoshua 6: 20: "So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city."II Timothy 2: 4: "No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier."Hebrews 11: 30: "By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seve

The Great Paradox of all Paradoxes

Image
The Greatest Paradox of all Paradoxes Compare both writings and I for one conclude them to be both the greatest parody of justice of all time and yet the purest form of justice and supreme love and sacrifice ever known. Yes, this is indeed a true riddle of the baffling mystery of the ages since before the beginning of time. Yes this is the essence of the paradox of all paradoxes. Oh I fall on my knees and thank you Lord Jesus for your perfect sacrifice to save me. For it is written: “Those who call upon the name of the Lord Jesus will be saved.” Amen.  But who may abide the day of his coming?" Malachi 3:2 His (JESUS CHRIST) first coming was without external pomp or show of power, and yet in truth there were few who could abide its testing might. Herod and all Jerusalem with him were stirred at the news of the wondrous birth. Those who supposed themselves to be waiting for Him, showed the fallacy of their professions by rejecting Him when He came. His life on earth

How could God have chosen me?

Image
I'm passionate about God's Kingdom through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. But it totally astounds me ...shocks me...at, by, of how utterly, totally, completely useless I am for His service. I know my mission but I feel completely helpless and unable to even take the first step.  I'm a brute, a wild ox, an arrogant dog running in any direction at the whims of passion. The more I love my Lord the more I realize how quickly I'd sell him out to the highest bidder in Vanity Fair.  Oh how truly I secretly relish serving the things of this earth, behind of which Satan pulls the strings, and all of his fun than being an obedient servant to my Lord. For sure I call my Lord: "My Lord" but in the dark depths of my filthy heart, I yearn for the flesh and the lusts thereof: the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the pride of life. And when I ponder this I fall to my knees knowing that my Lord knows the true nature of my flesh and ...but ....still....

How Can We Sing In Times of Despair?

Image
HOW CAN WE SING IN TIMES OF DESPAIR? By living through these times and sustained by the ever loving, abiding presence of God - by Jesus Christ - through the Holy Spirit.... = Divine Grace. I found this passage below from an online resource called BIBLE EXLORERMorning Verse "Babes in Christ." 1Corinthians 3:1 Are you mourning, believer, because you are so weak in the divine life: because your faith is so little, your love so feeble? Cheer up, for you have cause for gratitude. Remember that in some things you are equal to the greatest and most full-grown Christian. You are as much bought with blood as he is. You are as much an adopted inheritance in Him. You are as rich as the richest, if not in enjoyment, yet in real possession. The smallest star that gleams is set in heaven; the faintest ray of light has affinity with the great orb of day. In the family register of glory the small and the great are written with the same pen. You are as dear to your Father's
