A NEW DOOR OPENS …

 

 

As we leave Quartzsite with a heavy heart we follow God calling. We feel  He’s is leading us to Oregon, of course where He leads is always good, but sometimes it’s hard to obey or you get mixed feelings. When that happens it’s always good to get a confirmation and that’s just what we got without even asking for it.

When the opportunity to go came up, the very next day, our most revered prayer partners call and told us while in prayer they received a word telling them to tell us we were to go to Oregon … “HE” had something for us to do … So that was all we needed, “He” calls, we obey.

The two reasons it hard to leave this time is because we are leave our ministry partner and best friend behind in the hospital suffering from COVID 19. He is very ill,  as of yesterday he has developed pneumonia and is on a resporator in serious condition. The only person the hospital will give any information to is his brother so he relays it to me … he’s a blessing and is keeping me up to date. At this time all any of us can do is PRAY and keep PRAYING beleiving the Lord will heal as He says in; 1 Peter 2: 24 and Isaiah 53:5. We know God hears our prayers and is faithful to His word so please be vigilant in your prayers and keep trusting in the Lord.

The second reason we’re leaving with a heavy heart is because we had to leave my side kick and faithful companion behind. Shadow Spirit, our precious dog of 13 years, had to be put to sleep last Friday, it was one of the hardest things I ever had to do. She had unconditional love and was always at my side … I could say a lot more but right now my heart breaking … I’ll always miss her.

We are in Hawthorne Nevada and I started this short message at 4:00 AM and the sun in now making its’ appearance. I’ll soon be waking up my sweet wife Sandy  and we’ll get rolling on to Oregon. Please Keep us in your prayers and if you haven’t already checked out our three part series on Revival, be sure and go back and take a look.

Love one another, pray for one another, and praise and thank God for all He does. He loves us more than we can possibly imagine.

All His blessings to all of you …

My prayer for you:  Kneeling Man

O’ heavenly Father,

We come to you with heavy burdens and your word says to give them to you, so here we here Lord.

There are many of your children sick with this virus that need your healing touch, so we stand in the gap patitioning you Lord for that healing. We claim 1 peter 2:24 and Isaiah 53:5 for ALL who are sick not only with this virus but for any infirmity, none them belong in our bodies and we take authority over them and command them to leave in the name of Jesus … so be it!

Lord, we pray for our president and leaders, give them wisdom and any that don’t know you I pray will have a divine awakening.

Lord, ALL LIVES MATTER, so any that be walking in danger protect them and change their path.

In the precious name of Jesus we pray

Amen

 

CALL TO REVIVAL! Part (3) HOW CAN WE HAVE REVIVAL?

 

 

I hope everyone who has stayed with me through this teaching on revival has gleaned hope and knowledge from it.

HOW CAN WE HAVE REVIVAL?

Only God can send revival. He alone is the Source: “Wilt Thou…revive us again” (Psalm 85:6)? No man, no organization, can “schedule” or plan spiritual revival. It is not something men do; it is what God will do if we are repentant and imbibe of His Word and remain constant in prayer.

Remember, God’s Spirit, which gives revival, is renewed in us daily, but conditionally! What are those conditions?

We must face up to spiritual realities. “Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you—unless indeed you fail the test?” (2 Corinthians 13:5)?

We need to see ourselves as we are—as God sees us; we must be honest. We must be repentant. “I tell you, no, but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:5).

We need to acknowledge God for Who He is and stop playing church. “How great is Your goodness,
Which You have stored up for those who fear You,
Which You have wrought for those who take refuge in You, Before the sons of men!
” (Psalm 31:19).

We must see sin for what it is—confess it, repent of it, and forsake it. FOREVER! “Go, and sin no more” (John 8:11).

We must cultivate an earnest desire to be revived. If we believe strongly enough in a cause, how can we not get involved? Read the entire fifty-first Psalm for a beautiful example of David’s attitude.

Often we don’t want revival badly enough to make any difference or change in our lives. Change is what Christianity is all about. We must change from what we are—our “old man,” or nature—to become more and more like Jesus Christ is in every way. Godly character is knowing right from wrong and choosing to go God’s way no matter what—even if it seems uncomfortable or awkward or brings persecution. Isaiah 55:6-7 encourages us to “Seek ye the LORD while He may be found.” This implies that a time is coming when God may not be easily found. No one knows how much time he or she may have left. God wants to send revival upon those who genuinely seek it.

We need:

Personal revival: that means individuals getting right with God.

Home revival: that means families getting back to the place they need to be.

Church revival: that means to be doing the work Christ ordained (Mathew 28:19-20).

Revival—a returning to God—is not turned on and off like a water fountain, but if we meet God’s conditions He will bestow it upon us. He wants us to be renewed!

There are people—millions, no, billions, of them—who need to be taught what you know! Yet do we—God’s called-out ones—sometimes grow complacent and self-satisfied? How can we revive others to God’s Truth when we, ourselves, need reviving? Can we expect God to add members to a sick, lukewarm, non-functional body? “And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we [first] believed” (Romans 13:11). We are reminded in Mathew 25:5 that all ten of the virgins in the parable slumbered and slept, but fortunately, some woke up in time.

Is it not without cause that Christ asks in Luke 18:8, “Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall He find faith upon the earth?” Will He find spiritual revival?

Let us all hear and heed God’s regular “call to revival” by attending church services each and every week (Hebrews 10:25), as well as His annual holy days (Leviticus 23). These are God’s divinely appointed special holy days that He commands us to attend so we might be spiritually revived. When He comes again will Christ find us so doing (Matthew 24: 46  Blessed is that slave whom his Lord finds so doing when he comes.)?

Let us cry out with all our hearts and beseech God Almighty, “Will You not Yourself revive us again,
That Your people may rejoice in You?
Show us Your lovingkindness, O Lord,
And grant us Your salvation.
” (Psalm 85:6-7)!

If you’ve enjoyed this teaching how about dropping a line in our reply box, we’d sure like to hear from you.

My prayer for you:

Heavenly Father,

We come to you today asking for your grace and mercy, forgive us, Lord of our sins and, draw us closer to you.

Lord, I ask and claim your healing powers for my Brother Bruce ( Isiah 53:5)  by your stripes he is healed, who is, as we publish this message laying in the hospital fighting for the life you gave him. He’s one of your frontline soldiers Lord and he needs your touch.

We pray for all with sickness to turn to you THE great physician and be healed in the name of Jesus.

We pray for a great revival to blanket our land and bring peace to our troubled hearts.

We lift our president up to you, he’s a good man and doesn’t deserve the hate he receives from his opposition. Give him strength and wisdom to weather the storm.

Thank you, Lord, for loving us we give you all the praise and glory…

We ask these things in the precious name of Jesus!

Amen

CALL TO REVIVAL! (part 2) HIDDEN DANGERS IN OUR NEED FOR REVIVAL

 

I hope my brother and sisters, you took the time to read our last message. (part 1 on; CALL TO  REVIVAL) I feel this is one of the most important messages the Lord has ever give to pass on and I pray it will ignite a godly uprising across our nation and even around the world and bring Jesus to the forefront where He rightly belongs.

Buckle up … let’s get started!

HIDDEN DANGERS IN OUR NEED FOR REVIVAL

We are reminded in 2 Corinthians 4:16 that “though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed [revived] day by day.” We are warned in 1 Thessalonians 5:19, “Quench not the Spirit.” There are basically two ways to quench God’s Spirit: 1) We can deliberately rebel and say, in effect, “God, I do not want what you have to offer. I am going to do things my way; or, 2) We can allow God’s Spirit to dwindle and “starve” to death by lack of renewal or replenishment. (1 Timothy 4:14) “  Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you, which was bestowed on you through prophetic utterance with the laying on of hands by the presbytery.”. Often, spiritual deterioration comes slowly and insidiously, without our awareness. Because there are seldom any physical symptoms, we grow weaker and weaker inside—spiritually—and an unsuspected trial or circumstance can easily ‘‘take us out.” ‘Samson, for example, had the Spirit of God upon him (Judges 14:6,19), but he played around with sin—and was found wanting. At one point the disciples had received power from Jesus Christ to heal and cast out demons (Matthew 10:5-8). Yet later, they seem to have lost their ability to cast out a certain demon and did not understand why. Jesus told them that it was because of their unbelief (Matthew 17:19-20)—their lack of spiritual renewal. Peter thought he was strong until times got tough, and with cursings, he denied the Lord three times (John 13:38). Often the condition of our hearts is such that we are not aware of our need at the very time it is most needed. We often cover up our inadequacies with a self-deceptive shroud of self-righteousness.

Know this: Human nature—the flesh—will fight against revival. For proof, all we need to do is ask ourselves, “Do I study and pray in ALL my spare time? Or do comfort and cares of the world crowd out that time I could otherwise be spending with God?” It is said that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. To have true spiritual revival we must admit that we have a need—and take action.

WHAT KIND OF REVIVAL DO WE NEED?

We need a renewal or recommitment that will resurrect God’s church collectively to spiritual life. Remember, revival means a renewal, a “return to life,” or spiritual consciousness.

Let us look into God’s Word to see what Jesus Christ says to the churches. Blow the dust off your Bible take a look at the second and third chapters of Revelation, where we see His messages to the seven churches. Elements of all the seven churches of Asia are present with us today! The letters were written to “the churches,” plural, i.e., the people in them. Seven times we are cautioned, “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches,” collectively.

This is important. Read this TWICE: Read over the messages to the seven churches and, in each case, ask yourself, “Is this a word picture of ME?”

WHAT KIND OF “REVIVAL” WAS RECOMMENDED FOR THE SEVEN CHURCHES IN ASIA?

As we read over these seven messages, notice that nothing is said or even suggested about “eras,” “ages,” or “dispensations.” It is speculated by some that the seven letters to the seven churches of Revelation are an outline of seven dispensations or “ages” or phases of church history. This concept, however, is not taught in Scripture but is a belief that is read into the Bible. Much confusion and many false teachings have resulted due to this theory. The danger of looking for esoteric, mystical, or hidden meanings is that this approach obscures the plain correction to all Christians in all churches all through time. Carried to the extreme, if we were to apply this “church for an era” theory throughout the Bible, we could conceivably make twenty-one additional “church periods” out of all the other New Testament epistles or letters mentioned, as some do these seven letters. We should look into God’s Word for personal correction, not shift the messages off to some other “church era.” Again, we need to ask ourselves, “Are any of these warnings applicable to ME, personally?”

What was Christ’s intention in addressing the seven churches in Revelation 2-3? Plainly, He strove to wake up, or “revive,” the churches. It is the same message He inspired Jude to write in Jude 3: “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”

Jesus rebuked the church at Ephesus for having left its first love (Revelation 2:4).

He rebuked the church at Smyrna because some of its members tolerated apostate believers among them who were really instruments of Satan (Revelation 2:9).

He rebuked the church at Pergamos because some of its members held to the doctrine of Balaam, who hired himself out to do religious work for personal gain, and held the false doctrine of the Nicolaitans (Revelation 2:14-15).

He rebuked the church at Thyatira because some there had listened to and tolerated false preaching, committing spiritual and even physical adultery (Revelation 2:20-21).

Jesus declared to the church at Sardis, “Thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead” (Revelation 3:1-3). They were devoid of spiritual life and power. He said, “Be watchful and strengthen the things that remain” (Revelation 3:1).

Christ commended members of the church at Philadelphia for their love but warned them to beware and hold fast that no man take their crown (Revelation 3:11). This strongly implies there would be those who would attempt to overthrow their faith by whatever means.

Christ called upon members of the church at Laodicea to repent; they thought they had need of nothing (Revelation 3:17). They had a lukewarm, neutral, compromising, or accommodating attitude.

Again, we need to ask ourselves, “Are any of these warnings applicable to ME, personally?”

Notice that the common admonition given to the churches was to overcome, surmount, or triumph over their sins and shortcomings. The same warnings apply to Christians today.

Some folks are members of the church in name only; they are not interested in changing, overcoming, or growing. Others are satisfied with the way things are and see no reason for any change. Still, others are too concerned about their own agendas to see that we need to spiritually analyze ourselves.1 Corinthians 11:28-31 is not just for Passover time; it is for all the time. “But let a man examine himself…” “For if we would judge ourselves,” we are reminded in verse 31, “we should not be judged.”

In a parable, Christ warned there would be tares, or false grain, among the good wheat. “Let both grow together until the harvest,” Christ said in Matthew 13:30, “Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but gather the wheat into my barn.”

“Ye shall know them by their fruits” (Matthew 7:16). This common figure is wonderfully expressive. Notice, fruit, not leaves, appearance, or professions are the proper tests of the life that is in the tree. We are to test all men—including ourselves—and every institution by every Word of God (Matthew 4:4). We are further cautioned in Matthew 7:2223, “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many [a]miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.”

For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14).

We need a revival that will rekindle the old fires, the “first love” we had at conversion.

Do you remember “better days”?

Days of dedication to the Lord and to His work?

Days when you came to church expecting great things from God—inspiring sermons, warm fellowship, spiritual satisfaction?

Days when you wouldn’t think of missing church to go to a ball game or some other secular activity?

When you didn’t look for some excuse for why you couldn’t serve the Lord? What is your best excuse? Will Christ accept it?

We need to cry out to God, “Wilt thou revive us again?” “Revive us again” means that there have been revivals before. God will always forgive as long as we return to Him. The Christian life is made up of “many beginnings.” We fall down—or sin—but keep getting up, striving not to fall in this way again. With this resolve in mind, we should be growing daily stronger and wiser in our Christian walk.

To illustrate, the life of a believer is not like hooking onto a hot air balloon and just drifting up to higher and higher plateaus forevermore. Yes, Christianity is a journey that involves mountaintop experiences, but plateaus and valleys as well. We are reminded in Psalm 23:4, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me.”

While it is true that God is not calling many wise, mighty, or noble at this time (1 Corinthians 1:26), He does not expect us to stay in a weakened or foolish condition. “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever” (2 Peter 3:18).

We need a revival that will restore joy and victory—a sense of overcoming (Revelation 21:7  He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.)—to the child of God. There are…

Too many defeated Christians today. They will not rise up again.

Too many discouraged Christians. They wallow in self-pity.

Too many backslidden Christians. They fall back into their old ways and habits of life.

Too many depressed Christians who will not let the past remain in the past. We cannot change the past; we can only go with the present and the future. “Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3: 13-14).

We need heart—a pure, dedicated, willing heart. Knowing full well the rewards ahead of us (1 Corinthians 13:12), For now, we see in a mirror [a]dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.

we should wake up every morning feeling as if we had just won the lottery, and more! Our reward will be so much greater than any lottery has ever been! There is no need to feel defeated or discouraged. There is no room for tired, old, worn-out Christians. The joy—the exaltation—of the Lord is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10); we need a revival where God will give us a song—happiness—in our hearts because we know who and what we are and where we are going. Habakkuk prayed, “LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years, make known; in wrath remember mercy,” and went on to say, “Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation (Habakkuk 3:2,18).

That’s about it for today. the next part we’ll look at; HOW WE CAN HAVE REVIVAL.

Be sure and check back in, this good stuff and I pray everyone is getting it and hopefully passing it on or getting others to take a look at these blogs. There’s enough gloom and doom out there … let’s spread the true hope of Jesus Christ and start changing lives … it begins with you.

My prayer for you:  Prayer For Healing

Father, forgive us and make us new in you.

Heal our land and guide our leader in the way you want our country to be.

Heal our loved one of this rampant virus rampaging our land. We pray for the needs of those alone and no one to help them, Lord touch their hearts and let your presents be known.

Our prayers go out for; Bruce, Ronnie, June, Fay, Brenda, and Jay Lynn for your healing hand, Lord, to touch them and make them whole. We claim 1 peter 2:23, by your stripes they are healed! 

We give you all the praise and glory

In Jesus precious name

AMEN

A CALL TO REVIVAL! (Part 1)

 

 

What exactly is “REVIVAL”?

Well in the next post(s) I’m going to attempt to give you an answer to most if not all your questions. As God downloaded into me and showed me many scriptures this message grew despondently so I decided to break it into segments so you could meditate and pray on what God is teaching us. I pray His words fill your heart and and “revival” comes.

Let’s get started!

PART 1

GOD’S CHURCH NEEDS REVIVAL! BUT WHAT IS IT—AND HOW DO WE GET IT?

Many are familiar with the old hymn, “Revive Us Again.” But what does this mean? Revived to what? How and when are we revived? We hear much talk, often negatively, about “revival”-about “getting right” with God-but through misuse and overuse, this term has become blurred in the minds of most hearers today. To many, a “revival” means an enigmatic, highly emotional religious meeting. Often, the word “revival” conjures up visions of an old-fashioned tent meeting featuring a charismatic, white-jacketed, sweaty-faced, hoarse-throated, foam-flecked evangelist shouting such “filler-words” as “Hallelujah!” “Praise the Lord!” “We’re gonna twist the old devil’s tail tonight!” “Let me hear you say, ‘Amen!’” “Won’t you give your heart to the Lord just now?” And, oh, yes, “Let the ushers with the offering baskets please come forward. Amen and Hallelujah!”

True revival, however, is a biblical concept. “For thus says the high and exalted One
Who lives forever, whose name is Holy,
“I dwell on a high and holy place,
And also with the contrite and lowly of spirit
In order to revive the spirit of the lowly
And to revive the heart of the contrite.
” (Isaiah 57:15). In Psalm 85:6-7, the psalmist asks God an interesting question: “6 Will You not Yourself revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You?
Show us Your loving kindness, O Lord, And grant us Your salvation.” To be revived again implies that there had been a revival previously. More about that later.

WHAT IS REVIVAL?

The word “revival” is from the Hebrew word chayah and means “to bring back to life,” to “restore to consciousness,” or to “restore to a previous condition.” We might say, “The drowning victim was miraculously revived.” As used in the Bible, it means a restoration, rejuvenation, or renewal of interest after spiritual neglect, oblivion, or obscurity.

What revival is not: Revival, as used in the Bible, is not evangelism, even though many may be revived as a result of it. It is not emotionalism, although there may be emotional manifestations connected to it. What it is: It is the personal renewal to spiritual life in an individual, or among a group of people. It is an “at-one-moment,” a heartfelt return to God and His commandments.

WHEN IS REVIVAL NEEDED?

Revival is needed whenever the love of God’s people has grown cold. We read in Revelation 3:15-17, “15 ‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. 16 So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked,

Consider the symptoms of the need of revival: just as a sick person manifests physical symptoms, so the need for personal spiritual revival has spiritual symptoms. A few of them are…

Complacency: self-satisfaction or satisfaction with the status quo. “Seat-warmers” who have a “don’t rock the boat” attitude may well need a spiritual revival.

Lack of concern for the lost and the suffering in the world (1 Corinthians 10:23 All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify.). How can we see or read the world news, considering all the suffering in the world, and not be moved by it? If we are not, we definitely need spiritual renewal or revival.

Hiding or covering secret sins (Numbers 32:23 But if you will not do so, behold, you have sinned against the Lord, and be sure your sin will find you out.). If we find ourselves covering or excusing our sins, or rationalize, “I will have to change that…someday,” we may well need a spiritual revival.

Having an unforgiving spirit (Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.).  Some parrot, “I can forgive, but I can’t forget.” An unforgiving spirit is a strong indication that we need a spiritual revival.

We are to put on the mind, the views, and the feelings of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16 For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ. ).  God forgives and forgets sins once we’ve repented of them. (Psalm 103:12 As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
). We need to forgive and then forget what we have forgiven. We are like beasts when we kill. We are like men when we judge. We are like God when we forgive.

Being filled with pride (Proverbs 29:23 A man’s pride will bring him low, But a humble spirit will obtain honor.). We are reminded in Proverbs 16: 18 that “Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling. ” Pride and vanity were the cause of Lucifer’s fall (Ezekiel 28:17). We must beware, lest his attitude is reflected in us. If we find ourselves feeling superior or puffed up, we need the humility of revival.

Animosity toward other Christians. It is said that we can pick our friends, but we cannot pick our brethren. One sage rightly quipped, “We must also overcome the brethren.” Read and heed Mathew 18:15 to revive that friendship.

Any condition of spiritual standing where we are less than we were before: a “backslidden condition.” We all know the way back to Babylon—it is only two half-steps back to our old ways and habits of life. If you feel yourself slipping, YOU need spiritual revival!

All of these symptoms are strong indications that we need to draw closer to God and His Word.

Let’s stop here and give us all time to chew on what we’ve learned. I sure hope you’re getting something out of this, let me know. I read all the comments we get and take them very seriously … I love your input.

Tomorrow we’ll start off with; “Hidden dangers in our need for revival”.

Be sure and come back … Wow! God is really moving.

My prayer for you:  Kneeling Man

What an awesome God you are. When I look around and see the beauty your hands have made It breaks my heart to see what is happening to our beautiful country.

We truly need revival, we need you!

I pray the words you gave me today to write takes that short journey from head knowledge to heart knowledge, it’s only about 18 inches but sometimes it’s further away than the deepest part of the ocean.

Father, I pray eyes are opened and hearts turn to you.

Lord, bless my brothers and sisters in their needs, have mercy on us and forgive our sins and restore our land.

Jesus, I claim victory, that you said was ours if we ask in your name, victory over this virus, the lies being spread and the miss-direction we are being led in by the media.

Lord, we are all one, “all lives matter”.

I pray You open the eyes of my black brothers and sisters and let them see how they are being used to further a political agenda, in reality, it’s all about power, it has nothing to do with making lives better … on the contrary …

Only You Lord can change hearts, revive us O’ Lord is my prayer for a lost nation.

Amen

“Nothing To Fear But Fear Itself”

 

“Nothing to fear but fear itself” is a quote taken from our 32nd president, Franklin D. Roosevelt’s inaugural address in 1933.

Much like today, back then our country was upside down not knowing what was coming next. We were just coming out of the great depression that had lasted for 4 years and a recession was looming on the horizon that would start in 1937 and last another year, and of course, with all this going on, Hitler, in  Germany, was starting his reign of terror.

The difference between then and now is called patriotism. Yes, there was fear but we “all” pulled together as one nation under God … That’s right, under God.

Back then we were still a God-fearing nation, we had prayer in classrooms, God was spoken of in our congress and courts still displayed the ten commandments.

What happened? If you don’t know the answer check who’s defacing, and tearing down our monuments, rioting in our streets and burning our flag … the one so many fought and died for so they could try and destroy our American heritage and way of life.

I’m not saying our country is perfect, we’re not, but the second place doesn’t even come close.

Get over this Black lives matter stuff, saying that in its self is being prejudiced … ALL lives matter … “ALL”!

Have black people been wronged? Yes … Were they enslaved? Yes …

But a White, bible believing, Republican President ( Lincoln) went to war and set them free.

Poverty reaches across all colors, look around you, I mean really look around you.

On The Road For Christ has an opportunity to see first hand the poverty and the squaller some of our people are living in. Some are there by choice, lazy, no work ethics, no education (that takes work). All they have to look forward to is their next government handout and that’s as far as they have the ambition to go.

What about the ones who want out ?… Can they make it?

Not with the attitude I just mentioned above but with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19: 26)

I’m nothing great, but I came from a long line of foster homes, paid my own way through college, served my country, and am still making my own way in life.

O’, but you say, your white and I say you’re right, I am and I’m also 75years old and still going strong.

Then you ask … How about a black person … Does Ben Carson ring a bell?

You see, color doesn’t have a thing to do with it, integrity, tenacity (never give up) and faith in God is what matters those things will pretty much empower you to reach your goals. Not handouts, leave the pity party behind, and get down on your knees and then get to work.

If you haven’t thought about giving God a chance that’s a good place to start. He won’t give you a handout but He’ll certainly give you hand up. Once you accept Him as your Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9-10) He said He would never leave you or forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6)

That thing called fear that I spoke of at the start?

It isn’t from God, He’s the answer, not the problem.

When you truly accept Christ and trust in Him all fear is gone. Faith is the opposite of fear, “as your faith grows fear goes …”

We, here at “On The Road For  Christ” sure love all of you in Christ.

Give us all the strength we need to complete each day’s work you have planned for us.

Use us, Lord, to further your Kingdom.

Lord, I ask you to lift up the down trod and the fearful, to touch their hearts with your love.

Help us O’ Lord!

In Jesus precious name we pray

Amen

Keep Looking Up!

ALL LIVES MATTER! …

 

What a sad state our country is in when we separate human lives and make one more important than an other …”ALL LIVES MATTER!”

Whether you like that or not and you choose to believe one race should have priority  over another then you need to adjust your stinkin’ thinkin’.

There is no place in scriptures that claims one race is superior over another. Romans 10:9-10

Says “you will be saved” meaning ALL, God is no respecter of person (Acts 10:34-35). No where in the bible does it say because the color of you skin gives you priority over anyone else.

The founders of our country new that and put it in our constitution … “ALL LIVES MATTER!”

Evil rules our land, anarchist are trying to take over ( Seattle) and we’re doing nothing, we have elected officals that are going along with it.

When the rule of law is no longer affective, we’ve lost. What’s going on now has nothing to do with justice, it’s about over throwing america, bring to power a situation no freedom loving american should have to tolerate.

Look around you … What do you see, is that the american dream our forefathers fought and died for?

If we don’t get down on our knees and earnestly pray for our land (2 Chronicles 7:14) I truly believe we are lost.

The media has done their job well, we’ve taken our eyes off the ball with all their hype, fake news and liberal strategies including the covid-19 hype. Yes it’s a virus, the worst one ever … really? HIV has killed 34 million and counting. Has the government closed down gay bars and bath houses?… Why not???

Police are supposed to be performing genocide on the black race … Really?

1,000 black babies are aborted (killed) everyday, that’s genocide. 

More black men are killed by black men than any other means. These stats are out there, look for yourself, don’t believe the fake news.

O’, one more thing, when was the last time you heard the “news” say the recovery rate for covid-19 is 99%?  Well it is… check it out. Unless you’re are already ill you stand a better than average chance of recovery from this “virus”.

 We sure care about each one of you.

My prayer for you:

O’ father we come to you with a humble heart.

we ask you to open our eyes to you, Lord.

Forgive our sins and heal our infirmities, heal our land.

Lord give our president wisdom, supernatural wisdom in governing our land, and show the people the true deceitful ones trying to destroy our country.

You are the answer to all our needs, show us the way and give this country discernment to see through the lies and deceptions being perpetrated on your people.

Bless all who read this message and may His grace abound in each and every life.

In Jesus precious name

AMEN

NOW IS THE TIME …..! (2 CORINTHIANS 6:2)

 

Are you at the crossroads in your life?

Have the recent events changed your life … your thinking?

Does security, what’s next, or are we going to revert back to the status quo come to mind?

If you’re a non-believer you probably think you have no real power in making any real life-changing decisions, after all, you’ve made it this far on your own wit so why not keep wing it… by the way, hows that working so far? I mean being politically correct and all that that comes with it?

It seems certain politicians want to control every aspect of our lives from what we eat, where we go, how we speak, what we write and of course they claim it’s all for our own good … Really?

As believers, we should have known this was coming, after all, our manual for life said that we would be told by deceivers (liars), what to believe, and even what was good for us to eat and not eat.

You say, wow Dusty that’s going a bit far… Really? Here, read it for yourself; 1 Timothy 4:1-16

the answers to all your questions, including what you should do with your life for what’s coming next can be found in the written word of God, the Holy Bible.

If you allow Jesus in your heart and you truly seek Him He will open your eyes to a whole new world (Romans 10: 9-10).

No politician, thug on the street, sickness or evil can overcome you. You belong to God, He is your refuge Psalm 62:5. In the big picture, our time on earth in this fragile body is just a vapor James 4:14, but eternity is forever. 

We know as believers we’ll be persecuted, look what the media did to President Trump for holding a bible. If that can be done to a president, we, as followers haven’t a chance to avoid the persecution that is coming.

Here’s your question;

Why would I want to become a believer and subject myself to all that pain? …

how do I know that’s your question? Well isn’t it?

God already gave me the simplest answer … go read it for yourself …

Revelation 22:8-21. 

Do you believe it? …. Maybe not … do you have any Idea long eternity is?

One of us has to be right …

I know the truth, He lives in my heart and He wants to live in yours.

How about it?

Pray …Call us … Email us … don’t wait, this could be the day!

My prayer: 

Father,

I pray the bluntness of this blog (message) reaches the hearts of people that need to know you and they decide to make you the Lord of their life.

Our country, our world needs you, Lord, I pray that a revival will blanket our land, and hearts are turned to you.

I pray for the healing of the sick and the refreshing of our spirits. I pray for people to come together and racial discrimination on all sides end.

I pray that the truth will be revealed and the ungodly be brought to justice and our country set free.

I pray for our children who are being misled by people who want our way of life even farther from you. I pray a godly person will come into their lives they will trust and follow.

Here our prayers o’ Lord …

In Jesus name

AMEN

Please pray for our ministry … Thank you!

Dusty

What’s Next….?

 

What’s next? Am I the only one realizing we are under siege?

Last week, the media said the President was hiding in the White House, calling him “bunker boy”. Unbelievable disrespect.

When he leaves the White House, they call it phony and criticize the methods used to secure his safety… He’s the President! These people aren’t peaceful; they’re throwing bricks, killing police and innocent people are being brutely beaten.

His critics say he isn’t even a Christian. He says he is, that he confessed Jesus as his Lord. That puts that confession between him and Jesus, not anyone else. Only God knows for sure, just as yours, mine,or anybody else’s confession of belief is ultimately only between God and the confessor.

Some so-called believers are as far from God as the confessing atheist. They confess with their mouth; play the part when someone is watching and then do the opposite when no one is around.  They show fear and paranoia, not faith… faith is the opposite of fear.

God loves His children and wants all to come to Him (2 Peter 3:9). Being born again is a must (John 14:6). By receiving Jesus into your heart, you become an heir of God and all the promises in the Bible. You are under His protection… Have faith in Jesus Christ.

This doesn’t mean things won’t happen to you. Remember we are in the world (Ephesians 6:12).

The violence going on today isn’t to honor Mr. Floyd. It’s just an excuse for misbehavior… sin. What happened to him was definitely wrong. That doesn’t mean he wasn’t a criminal. Has anyone looked at his background? … Thug, thief, and involved in counterfeiting? He was being arrested legally, however, the way he was being restrained was what was illegal. Now, he’s being eulogized as a good community-serving man and using his name as an excuse for “insurrection”. Yes, insurrection.

We are a country of law… to be equally applied to “all”. There is no race discrimination in our constitution… it doesn’t exist. We are all created in God’s image.

President Lincoln said, and I paraphrase, “Our country’s destruction will come from within…”  Hmmm… insight or divine inspiration?

Look around my brothers and sisters… Random rioting or insurrection?

Pray, my friends, without ceasing (1 Thessalonian 5:17). Pray.

Without God, I feel our country is lost. When we have people running for office that would change the fabric of our country, driving us further from God and His covering, we are in trouble. Listen carefully to what is being said by the people running for office. Do they follow God’s laws or the one they want to make; the ones that will allow sin against Him?

I implore you to search your heart. What is your belief? Follow God or follow a liberal way of life?… It’s impossible to do both! (Matthew 6:24)

My Prayer:

Oh, Father, what a mess our land is in. Why You allow it, only You know.

I do believe in Your Word, that all things work together for good (Romans 8:28)… Have mercy on our land; on the innocent.

Protect those following You, Lord. Protect the dedicated first responders, the people called to duty even though they put themselves in harm’s way.

Lord comfort those that have already lost loved ones, property, and their way of life.

Father touch the lost; show Yourself to them; change their hearts.

I pray in Your precious name, Jesus Christ,

AMEN!

I love you all in Christ. Stay safe…
