DEAD CHURCH HOUSES~


I want to share the few experiences I had with churches in my area. although I was never a member I did attend some services. Once I became born again I felt the need for our family to start attending church. We went to a little Baptist church just down the road for a few months and although everyone was very nice and inviting it seemed very robotic and always had one member in the front row who snored his way through most the service. Not one Holy Spirit convicting sermon did I hear.
On Christmas Eve we wanted to go to the evening service. It snowed that night and we had about 3 inches of snow on the ground but we made our way down the road only to find out they cancelled service. So we went next door to the little Methodist church instead.
It was the saddest thing I've ever witnessed. I didn't know whether to cry or scream in anger! The congregation sang every song with zombie emotion and the pastor was so obese he could hardly walk from one candle lighting to another without gasping for breath. Now some may say I'm mean to judge a man on his weight but I disagree. Obesity is food addiction, just as alcoholism and drug addiction. A pastor is supposed to set an example for His congregation and a 400+ pound man preaching is no different than a drunk pill popping pastor. Self control?
When it was time for communion my family and I walked up first and obviously didn't know the routine because after we got the bread and drank the juice we turned to walk back to our pew only to get angry stares and whispers. When we sat down we quickly learned we were supposed to walk around the long way back to our pew.
Not one person came up to greet us. The church as adorned with christmas trees and decorations and the whole thing was like a sterile surgical procedure instead of love and adoration for our Jesus.
We visited a mega church the next town over once which was also very sad to witness. They were selling "read the Bible in a year" bibles and CD's. People were walking in late for service during the first 20 minutes, while whispering and laughing as they waked to their seats. All I could think was if Jesus was standing at that pulpit would they still be so lewd?
The sermon was about the genealogy of Jesus and seemed to go on for 4 hours. Nothing convicting whatsoever just a lot of laughing joking and self exalting behavior. We never returned.
I visited some other churches on my own without the kids and husband only to feel I was back in high school again. A lot of whispers and glares while not one welcome or hello was said to me.

I'm in no way trying to harass or smear anyones church or reputation only sharing my experience as a testimony of how dead a lot of church houses are today. Jesus did not come to built religion or buildings. His true church are His followers and God can not be contained in a building. Fellowship is important but to say it must involve organized religion is a farce. Jesus is alive on earth today through those who have given themselves as a living sacrifice to do the Father's will. Religion has always caused hate, death, separation, hypocrites, and pride. All things Jesus hates.

BIRDS OF A FEATHER~





The company we keep matters to Jesus. Why? Because it can affect our walk with God. We are to follow Jesus not the crowd. The world tries to tell us we need to accept and tolerate all. But Jesus says to separate ourselves from those who walk in darkness. Those who rebel against the Word of God. Those who reject our love devotion and commitment to Christ and the things of God's Kingdom.

Does this mean we are being hateful NO! Hate would blend in with the world and hide the light of Christ within! We can be in the world as a witness to God's truth but are not to become part OF the world and Jesus knows the company we keep can corrupt His children. Even relatives!

We are to love God first and above all because without God's love we can't have HIS wisdom love and power to draw others to Jesus which is always done by the power of the Holy Spirit working through man.

Anything or any one who hinders this flow will prevent conversion of hearts and when we  follow the crowd instead of Jesus we are hindering His mighty hand from reaching out to the world.

Can two walk together, except they be agreed? AMOS 3:3

2 John 1:11
Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.


Proverbs 14:7 Escape quickly from the company of fools; they're a waste of your time, a waste of your words. 8 The wisdom of the wise keeps life on track; the foolishness of fools lands them in the ditch. 9 The stupid ridicule right and wrong, but a moral life is a favored life. 10 The person who shuns the bitter moments of friends will be an outsider at their celebrations. 11 Lives of careless wrongdoing are tumbledown shacks; holy living builds soaring cathedrals. 12 There's a way of life that looks harmless enough; look again - it leads straight to hell. 13 Sure, those people appear to be having a good time, but all that laughter will end in heartbreak. Sift and Weigh Every Word 14 A mean person gets paid back in meanness, a gracious person in grace. 15 The gullible believe anything they're told; the prudent sift and weigh every word. 16 The wise watch their steps and avoid evil; fools are headstrong and reckless. 17 The hotheaded do things they'll later regret; the coldhearted get the cold shoulder.

WHAT GOD HAS JOINED TOGETHER LET NO MAN SEPARATE~


*MAN'S MARK ON THE WORLD*
As with every other beautiful thing God created man has tainted it by putting His mark on it. Even marriage. Are those brides walking down the isle visibly pregnant wearing all white really pure and clean as white stands for? Those who get married by the pope or even a man of God, who's intentions are to marry because they lust after one another, or because they have been living together and got pregnant they feel its the right thing to do for the child? Are they joined by God?

What about those who's parents are completely against the marriage and they disobey their parents by doing it anyway? Or the man who marries yet has not cleaved to his wife because he puts his mother above his wife? What about those who had sex with another the night before the wedding at their bachelor/bachelorette party, some even making a baby and often times drunk out of their minds. Are these marriages holy matrimony, joined by a holy God? Just because they made a promise to God who they don't even know, acknowledge love and obey?


Now we know that God hears not sinners: but if any man be a worshiper of God, and does his will, him he hears. John 9:31

The LORD is far from the wicked: but he hears the prayer of the righteous. Prov 15:29

Looking at all the divorce and destruction of children's lives today I know it's because God was not in it. Marriage requires 3! GOD,husband, and wife. If God is not in the marriage it is not blessed. Just like a church house. If God is not welcome He is going to depart which is the case for probably 99 % of church houses today. They have become synagogues of satan. Not made by Jesus but satan himself.


Not to mention all the second and third marriages which according to God should never even happen which is why the divorce rate for those are 75% or greater. Man has ruined even the most beautiful union God intended with marriage. God says the entire world is blinded by satan and why would marriage be untainted from that?

This in no way means that we are free to divorce or take marriage lightly but that we must repent and turn to Jesus, giving up our way of doing things and start seeking God's way. 

God is a loving Father and what kind of father doesn't teach their children right from wrong (commandments) while following up with correction/punishment when they don't listen? God being perfect and Holy is always fair and just unlike many human parents.

We act like rebellious spoiled bratty teenagers towards God, not wanting His love wisdom and correction but thinking we know better than God we choose one disaster after another! (Free Will)

We can compare marriage to a person's walk with God. She/he can do many good works and ministries in Jesus name yet not even know Him, therefore all their works are in vain and filthy rags to be burned up. Just like getting married without submission to God. You can marry in Jesus name, in a church before a preacher, yet have God no way involved or present in the marriage. 

26"Then you will begin to say, 'We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets'; 27and He will say, 'I tell you, I do not know where you are from; DEPART FROM ME, ALL YOU EVILDOERS.' Luke 13:26

It's time for ALL to repent and turn to Jesus so that He can heal our land. (marriages, homes, and hearts.) Otherwise life counts as nothing but loss.

And My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15"Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.…2 Chronicles 7:14

NO SUCH THING AS TAKING JESUS CHRIST TOO SERIOUSLY!



*THE SWORD~GOD'S WORD~JESUS CHRIST~WILL SEPARATE FAMILIES AND LOVED ONES WHEN ONE LIVES FOR CHRIST AND OTHERS DON'T*.

There is no such thing as taking Jesus too seriously. Loving Him too much.

Earthquakes can be in the Spirit which is the sword between loved ones and families.

Jesus is the Sword.

Those not walking the narrow path will be offended by those who do.

Jesus was rejected by His own family as He warned we will be also.

If they reject you they are rejecting God Himself.

Jesus looked at those who did the will of the Father God as His family, not those who disobeyed and were far from God.

What Jesus tells you in darkness you must speak in the light with no fear, preach on housetops!!!

Fear only Jesus never man or death.

Cling to Jesus. He will never forsake His saints. He will walk with you through all tribulations!

Those who reject you are rejecting Jesus and are enemies to God.

Jesus does not wink at compromise and sin.

There are soooooo few who stick with Jesus during persecution from family and friends!

So few who are choosing to please Jesus Christ over their spouse, children, mother, father, brother, sister!

God wants ALL of your heart. Or you are not worthy because it's simply lip love.

Your earthly relationships will change when you love Jesus above all else.

If you fear what others think, including your family, you are not worthy Jesus says.

Matthew Chapter 10 testify's to all of this truth~

I was made to feel shame and guilt for my complete devotion to Jesus by my family.

NO MORE.

I will obey Christ until death and my prayer is that ALL will come to repentance and to know Him intimately.

Only God can teach us perfect love for one another and those who are not seeking Him do not know true love.

VERY FEW ARE TRULY SERVING JESUS AS THEY CLAIM.

So many are serving God in the flesh but not in the Spirit. They don't even know Him. They don't sit at His feet and allow Him to teach.

Jeremiah 2:13  For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.

"You blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that the outside of it may become clean also. Matthew 23:26

ATTACK OF THE DAY~


I get many spiritual attacks throughout the day so I decided to start posting the "attack of the day" in hopes to help another.

Today I will start early, since it is probably a pretty common one to most believers who actually follow Jesus instead of the crowd.

I was asked just what exactly do I mean when I say I'm no longer of the world. Why then do I drink coffee? Why don't I just live in the woods like John the Baptist?

Now, the Holy Spirit is working on me to no longer spout off my answers in anger but instead to wait and listen to His leading/voice. I responded~

 "Anything I do which would grieve Jesus is of the world." 1 John 2:15.

Driving my truck, drinking coffee, wearing clothes, wearing makeup, will not grieve the Holy Spirit like watching soap operas, reading trashy smut magazines, watching reality T.V. families living like the devil, listening to music spewing filthy garbage. These things greatly grieve Jesus because they are things this world idolizes and satan governs.

So the next time we do, listen, or watch something ask yourself, does this grieve the Father? The Holy Spirit dwelling within us should be the judge and it's our choice to listen to or reject Him. Rejection will quench the Holy Spirit and sear our conscience.

THE SILENT TREATMENT=ABUSE!


We've all heard of solitary confinement that wardens use to punish prisoners. The effects can be devastating to a mans mind. Some of the worst forms of abuse cause inward scars not outward.

The silent treatment is an overlooked yet cruel form of abuse and over time will bring lasting damage to the victim. As with all abuse it is a cowardly way for the abuser to manipulate and control their victim. Sadly parents can resort to this abuse to their children or spouses in their marriage and it's is a cycle that is hard to break.


These hidden scars eventually fester to the surface causing ugly oozing wounds which leave others who are oblivious to the truth in shock by such unexplained reactions. But as with everything else God sees all knows all and heals all who come to Him in humble submission. God can't heal what we keep hidden by refusing to acknowledge. 

NEVER GIVE UP ON GOD AND HE WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU!


We've all done it. Fell into sin, did something really bad and stupid only to think we've disgraced God and His Kingdom and who are we to speak on the things of Christ anymore, right?

WRONG! Those are the lies from the father of lies! We need to shut our ears off to those lies and run back to Jesus with a contrite heart!

Jesus will NEVER turn His back on a repentant broken poor spirit no matter what the sin. Ever heard of getting back in the saddle again? Each time you get back up the better rider you become. Well, our faith grows as well as our knowledge of our awesome Savior Jesus each time we fall.


It's not the strength of our faith in the beginning that matters but the strength in the end. Overcomers are those who never give up on God. EVER!  **A righteous person may fall seven times, but he gets up again. However, in a disaster wicked people fall. Proverbs 34:16**

GOD WOOS US IN AMAZING WAYS



God can use anyone or anything to wake us up. Even false teachers. Looking back I now see how God woke me up to the truth about my dysfunctional upbringing through a website about narcissistic mothers.   http://www.luke173ministries.org   Although it was biblically based, it often used NIV and false doctrine. Jesus still spoke to me and wooed me to Him shedding much light on the darkness that I grew up thinking was the norm.

The website is very helpful for those who suffer from this abuse but I disagree in that it teaches we don't have to forgive our abusers if they don't repent. The Holy Spirit quickly showed me this to be false teaching because we must forgive whether or not they repent. God however, does not forgive the unrepentant. But we are not God. So I did forgive my parents for things they did and allowed which should have put them both in jail for a very long time.

One thing that is not preached enough is the fact that those who continue to reject Jesus Christ will be given over to a reprobate mind and strong delusion preventing them from responding to His voice. We are all born with a conscience and some people choose to ignore it to the point of searing it. They no longer feel guilt, remorse, and sorrow for their sins. God gives them over to their hearts desires.

If God's holiness and righteousness were preached more today instead of the man-made god of only love mercy and grace, people would fall flat on their faces in repentance begging Jesus to heal and save them from deception and hell! 

It is written God not only hates the sin but also the evil doer.  Again, we are not God and we are not to hate anyone. However, we are told not to walk with darkness but to shed light on it and shun all evil. Anyone who condones, denies, accepts, protects, and defends evil (these things God hates) are just as guilty as those who do it.  

Those in Christ are to walk in the light meaning we are not to walk with those who live in and mingle with darkness. Even if they are our relatives. We can pray for them, be pleasant to them, but to keep company with them is foolish and disobedience to our heavenly Father. Matt 12:50

Don't discredit the ways God can woo a man or woman to Himself. It can be from a false teacher or a false bible translation such as NIV. However, the Holy Spirit will quickly steer them to the truth and teach them all things. Our Father is amazing!

Proverbs 6:16-19   King James Version (KJV)

16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren

JESUS WANTS TO USE OUR TESTIMONIES TO BRING HIM GLORY!!


Anyone who knew me in high school can testify I was not at all who I am today. Jesus says we are a new creation when we become born again and the old person has died. Well, I am a living testimony that Jesus can heal even the worst of sinners.

I was a party girl who barely went to school and when I did I was usually high. I graduated high school by the skin of my teeth and struggled many years after that with alcohol and drug addiction.  In 2012 everything changed.  I finally had enough and repented of my sinful lifestyle turning it all over to Jesus Christ.

It's funny because some of my family members who grew up in the church and tried to persuade me to go and give my life to Christ now look at me as odd and extreme in my faith. My husband who grew up in church and was confirmed is asking me questions about God's Word. I never grew up in the church and was never taught by men, only God and His Holy Spirit who dwells within me.

It is God who separates us from this world. Jesus gives us His mind and eyes to see things that we were once blind to. The church system is the most blind and wicked of all. More so than the down and out dirty sinner on the streets. Their pride has ruined them. It is easier for a humble poor homeless bum to become born again than a person who has known nothing but the man- made church.

Jesus wants our hearts above all else. Once Jesus has 100% of our hearts He is able to be intimate with us on a level only possible in Spirit. John 4:24 Jesus is waking up the nobodies in the world who are not so intertwined with themselves and this world and He will use them to shame the wise!! 1 Corinthians 1:27 

The church system and the prideful who look down at everyone else believing they have done something to earn the love of Christ and His anointing will fall hard. It has always been through human weakness the glory and power of Jesus Christ has been known. For those who are humble Christ will exalt and those who are proud He will crush. Matt 23:12, 2 Samuel 22:28, Luke 1:52

JESUS CHRIST IS THE BEST HIGH IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



ARE YOU SAVED?





A person who has been born again, or regenerated, does not habitually commit sin. He no longer sins with his heart and will and whole inclination. There was probably a time when he did not think about whether his actions were sinful or not, and he did not always feel grieved after doing evil. There was no quarrel between him and sin; they were friends. But the true Christian hates sin, flees from it, fights against it, considers it his greatest plague, resents the burden of its presence, mourns when he falls under its influence, and longs to be completely delivered from it. Sin no longer pleases him, nor is it even a matter of indifference to him; it has become a horrible thing which he hates. However, he cannot eliminate its presence within him.
If he said that he had no sin, he would be lying (I John 1:8). But he can say that he hates sin and that the great desire of his soul is not to commit sin at all. He cannot prevent bad thoughts from entering his mind, or shortcomings, omissions, and defects from appealing in both his words and his actions. He knows that "in many things we offend all" (James 3:2). But he can truly say, in the sight of God, that these things cause him grief and sorrow and that his whole nature does not consent to them. What would the apostle say about you? Are you born again?
Second, John wrote: "Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God" (I John 5:1).
A man who is born again, or regenerated, believes that Jesus Christ is the only Saviour who can pardon his soul, that He is the divine person appointed by God the Father for this very purpose, and beside Him there is no Saviour at all. In himself he sees nothing but unworthiness. But he has full confidence in Christ, and trusting in Him, he believes that his sins are all forgiven. He believes that, because he has accepted Christ's finished work and death on the cross, he is considered righteous in God's sight, and he may look forward to death and judgment without alarm.
He may have fears and doubts. He may sometimes tell you that he feels as if he had no faith at all. But ask him if he is willing to trust in anything instead of Christ, and see what he will say. Ask him if he will rest his hope of eternal life on his own goodness, his own works, his prayers, his minister, or his church, and listen to his reply. What would the apostle say about you? Are you born again?
Third, John wrote: "Every one that doeth righteousness is born of Him" (I John 2:29).
The man who is born again, or regenerated, is a holy man. He endeavors to live according to God's will, to do the things that please God and to avoid the things that God hates. He wishes to continually look to Christ as his example as well as his Saviour and to prove himself to be Christ's friend by doing whatever He commands. He knows he is not perfect. He is painfully aware of his indwelling corruption. He finds an evil principle within himself that is constantly warring against grace and trying to draw him away from God. But he does not consent to it, though he cannot prevent its presence.
Though he may sometimes feel so low that he questions whether or not he is a Christian at all, he will be able to say with John Newton, "I am not what I ought to be, I am not what I want to be, I am not what I hope to be in another world; but still I am not what I once used to be, and by the grace of God I am what I am." What would the apostle say about you? Are you born again?
Fourth, John wrote: "We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren" (I John 3:14).
A man who is born again has a special love for all true disciples of Christ. Like his Father in heaven, he loves all men with a great general love, but he has a special love for those who share his faith in Christ. Like his Lord and Saviour, he loves the worst of sinners and could weep over them; but he has a peculiar love for those who are believers. He is never so much at home as when he is in their company.
He feels they are all members of the same family. They are his fellow soldiers, fighting against the same enemy. They are his fellow travelers, journeying along the same road. He understands them, and they understand him. They may be very different from himself in many ways—in rank, in station and in wealth. But that does not matter. They are his Father's sons and daughters and he cannot help loving them. What would the apostle say about you? Are you born again?
Fifth, John wrote: "Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world" (I John 5:4).
A man who is born again does not use the world's opinion as his standard of right and wrong. He does not mind going against the world's ways, ideas and customs. What men think or say no longer concerns him. He overcomes the love of the world. He finds no pleasure in things which seem to bring happiness to most people. To him they seem foolish and unworthy of an immortal being.
He loves God's praise more than man's praise. He fears offending God more than offending man. It is unimportant to him whether he is blamed or praised; his first aim is to please God. What would the apostle say about you? Are you born again?
Sixth, John wrote: "He that is begotten of God keepeth himself' (I John 5:18).
A man who is born again is careful of his own soul. He tries not only to avoid sin but also to avoid everything which may lead to it. He is careful about the company he keeps. He knows that evil communications corrupt the heart and that evil is more catching than good, just as disease is more infectious than health. He is careful about the use of his time; his chief desire is to spend it profitable.
He desires to live like a soldier in an enemy country—to wear his armor continually and to be prepared for temptation. He is diligent to be watchful, humble, prayerful man. What would the apostle say about you? Are you born again?
These are the six great marks of a born again Christian.

RE-MARRIAGE WITH KIDS=DISASTER!


The key to successful marriage is God's divine order. God 1st, spouse 2nd, children 3rd. Putting the kids first will harm the marriage which will harm the family causing the kids and or spouse to go outside the home for comfort when trouble kicks in.

Putting spouse/self before God will surely cause the marriage to crumble causing the family to act like a chicken with it's head cut off much like a church without their head Jesus Christ.

It's my opinion (we all have one) if divorced one should remain single if they have children and wait until the kids are grown before they focus on their love life. I speak from experience (child of divorce & step parent) and I know God uses our scars for a purpose. When a person remarries with minor children the kids well being should come before the new spouse which sadly causes divine order to fall out of wack.

I'm sure there are rare cases such as the Brady Bunch when remarriage with joined extended families merge successfully but for the most part kids need to be the #1 focus after a divorce. Not your love life. The divorce rate for 2nd marriages is 75%!

Most people get married for all the wrong reasons. It can be to escape a dysfunctional family, premarital sex pregnancy, money prestige and security, looks/sex, political reasons etc etc etc. So I ask, are all marriages joined together by God when most go out of God's will and use free will when choosing a mate?

We know God hates divorce yet so many christians turn to it. I'm not condemning anyone for divorce but it sickens me when people put their children in harms way by remarrying expecting them to lay in the bed they made which can cause life long scars of their own.

If only we would obey God's commandments which most hate to hear but God gave them to save us from the struggles and heart ache we face daily due to our  foolish self seeking choices. Father knows best!

IF MY FATHER AND MOTHER FORSAKE ME THE LORD WILL TAKE ME UP~


~A beautiful testimony of LOVE from a sister in Christ, Jackie Price. Thank you Jesus for your witnesses who testify to your truth. Although few, they are like precious gems~


By: Jackie Price
I am a living witness and proof that JESUS keeps His word, HE IS FAITHFUL 

When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up. (Psalm 27:10)


I know the pain and rejection of having both parents calling me a false prophet and for bringing division because I live by the heart/law of God almighty and will not compromise His heart. The truth is those who truly repent and follow JESUS will bring division because He is the Holy Spirit of truth and His obedient children will defend His heart and SPEAK His truth regardless whether or not their earthly family are offended because they love their God with all their heart and fear offending and breaking their Gods heart/law and hurting Him. 

JESUS is my Father, He took me up when my mother and father forsook me for loving and obeying Jesus' heart/law, because they themselves have forsaken Gods law. I say none of these things to slander my parents but to give you my testimony to glorify JESUS, He deserves all glory and honor. It is Jesus and my hearts cry that my parents will come to repentance and come to truly know, love and serve Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth. 

Those who repent and follow Jesus with all their heart, mind, soul and strength will more than likely be forsaken by their earthly parents and other family members because of their love and obedience to Jesus. JESUS' obedient children are hated and mocked by MOST and are falsely accused of being at fault for destroying family just because they have repented and are living holy daily while others separate themselves from them because they themselves have not repented. 

Those who continue to live after their flesh instead of repenting are not sensitive to the things that hurt Gods heart, nor do they have the fear of the Lord, wisdom and understanding of His ways, His heart is seen as strange and so misunderstood to the unrepentant and prideful heart. Jesus' obedient children will not compromise just because their family members are offended by their love and obedience to Jesus Christ. 

There are few who are willing to be persecuted and hated by their loved ones for obeying and defending the heart of Jesus, MOST people are more concerned about offending their loved ones rather than offending their Creator, MOST fall into the snare of fearing man over fearing God, that's why so few will be saved. Jesus is the most beautiful heart, He is REAL love, He takes pleasure in seeing His children walking just as He walks. If a heart is not walking after the heart/law of Christ, then they are a stranger to Him and need to repent.

If you claim to know and love Jesus but you haven't suffered persecution from your families for living holy by following/obeying Jesus' heart/law then Jesus wants you to know that you are NOT really following/obeying Him as you claim, you are compromising His heart, misrepresenting His heart/law to your family and you need to repent. It does MUCH damage to claim Gods name while continuing to live in hypocrisy.

He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.

"Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!

AVOIDING CONFRONTATION IS NOT LOVE BUT HATE~


Dealing with a Sinning Brother or Sister~ DO NOT AVOID CONFRONTATION!

It's sad that most christians don't follow Jesus advice on how to deal with a sinning brother or sister. Instead, they fear confrontation while choosing gossip, back biting, betrayal, favoritism, slander, and seperation.

They finger point and blame while devouring the reputation of a sinning individual without hearing both sides.  These experiences will shed much light on who we can trust and we we can not. Who has the true love of Christ in them and who does not. 

What's even sadder is family members who are supposed to be the very ones counted upon will resort to this behavior. They fear open discussion to confront and resolve the issue in love while resorting to one sided views. This is not the way God intended His church to behave and certainly not families.

However, when the water clears and all calms down we can learn much from the hard tests God allows which are no accident and never happen by chance. It is written  For the one who has shown no mercy will be judged without mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.  James 2:13 

We all sin. We all make mistakes. We ALL need God's mercy and forgiveness. And there are always two sides to every story. God's way leads to life. Mans way leads to death~

**************************************************************



Matthew 18:15 “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.’[b] 17 And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.

REJECTION OF PROTECTION


It is written a house divided will not stand. Matt 12:25 There will be walls down for the devil to come in. A marriage will suffer if one is in Christ and the other opposed.
If a besetting sin is being played with and coddled there is an open invitation for Spiritual attackS. Whether it be pornography, gossip, adultery, chronic lying, abuse, addiction, etc. etc.
It is written the born again spouse will be a protection for the unsaved spouse and children. 1 Cor 7:14 However if constant rejection and blasphemy against the Holy Spirit occurs the house is divided and spiritual attacks are certain.
God can allow these attacks but only *we* can invite satan into our minds homes and hearts. IF we submit fully to Jesus Christ the devil will flee, but if we continue to love a secret sin we will invite every demon into the home.

This can be on a national level too. A nation who opposes Jesus Christ will fall. The walls will Crumble. Those who oppose and mock the faithful few are rejecting protecting from the only place of refuge in times of trouble.

GOD HAS EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL~TRUST HIM

God allows both good and evil, which surprises many especially when we hear of all the evil being done to the innocent. It's heart wrenching and causes extreme anguish and anger. But our Lord warns us things will only get worse before they get better. 2 Tim. 3:13

It is also written that God formed us in our mothers womb and knew our purpose and doings in life before we even entered into this world. Yes, even Hitler and all other wicked men and women.

Romans 9:13  12 it was said to her, "THE OLDER WILL SERVE THE YOUNGER." 13Just as it is written, "JACOB I LOVED, BUT ESAU I HATED." 14What shall we say then? There is no injustice with God, is there? May it never be!…

Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth. Romans 9:18

For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb. 14I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;…Psalm 139:13

Some are used for good and some are used for evil. True faith trusts God even when it makes no sense at all.

But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 2 Tim 2:20

Romans 9:21
Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?

Romans 9:20
But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? "Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, 'Why did you make me like this?

Ecclesiastes 11:5
As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother's womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.


Isaiah 44:24
"This is what the LORD says-- your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself,

We can't lean on our own understanding, feelings, emotions, or thoughts. We must acknowledge Christ always and depend, rely,  and abide in HIM in order to be overcomers.

What would happen if you found yourself or your loved ones at the hands of evil knowing life as you know it will end? If your hope and faith are in being physically removed from any suffering or death will your faith be shaken? Unshakable faith will trust God no matter what remembering His promise that all things work for good to those who love Him.

Only the Father knows our fate and putting our lives in His hands will bring peace and contentment in any and all circumstances.

It is also written God is going to shake things up like never before and He will gather His faithful ones who trust and look to Him instead of this world and all it's useless things. Unshakable faith. Isaiah 17:6


Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Prov 3:5

LOVE HURTS~



Have you ever spoken with a parent of a heroin addict? They know what it means to love so much it hurts. You can compare the love our Father God has towards a rebellious people to that with a parent of a child addict.

These parents try everything to turn their child away from the destructive heroin habit. It pains them to watch their child steal, sell their own bodies, and destroy the lives of loved ones all for the next fix. The next high. Only to run back and do it over and over again.

Finally, out of love the parent gives them up to their own destruction. They lock the child out of the home changing the locks. When the child finally hits rock bottom they come running home begging and pleading with more empty promises. More lies. But the parent says no. Only if they agree to rehab.

Some will agree to rehab and will go through a living hell fighting many demons while painful gut wrenching healing takes place to bring about a refined product with a lifetime of mind renewal therapy ahead.

Sadly, some still refuse and end up dead on the streets.

God even says there will come a time when He no longer hears the cries and sorrows of those who turn back to Him during Tribulation. He will even laugh and mock at their pleading as they mocked and laughed at God and His many prophets and watchmen. Prov. 1:26

Even when God sends the most aweful painful plagues on those left to suffer their own consequences to the rejection of truth they will still curse and blame God instead of turn to Him in repentance. Rev. 16:11


Real love will warn others using the wisdom and Word of God which is where all power and truth is found. Those who walk with God today can't help but feel anguish for the increased suffering of the body of Christ and the open rebellion and mockery against Jesus Christ who knows what it means to love so much it hurts. Romans 12:15

Those who are still engaging in their next high/fix will tell those with the truth/the sword/God's Word to shut up and speak nice things not gloom and doom. Isaiah 30:9-11

I APOLOGIZE TO YOU GOD~



I Apologize to You God

By David J. Stewart

"The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." —Psalm 9:17

       I apologize on behalf of my nation. The United States of America has become a large Sodom and Gomorrah. I am so sorry Lord, you deserve far much better. You have blessed us with freedom, and yet we taunt your holiness by living in unrepentant sin. You gave us your precious Word, and yet we have banned It from our public school's curriculum since 1963. 

Your Word teaches us to pray; yet since 1962 teachers have been legally forbidden to lead children in prayer. You teach us in your Holy Word that you lovingly formed mankind out of the dust of the earth, and breathed into us the breath of life; yet, our schools are legally required to teach children that they evolved from apes.

We are so filled with sinful pride and stubbornness in America that we have even renamed one of our most popular cities SIN CITY! Some people believe that You judged New Orleans with hurricane Katrina, which makes me wonder what's going to happen to Sin City Las Vegas? Americans, including professed Christians, can't seem to get enough of Sin City. The overall themes of Sin City are gambling and fornication. In fact, Nevada boasts oflegalized prostitution. And let me tell you, What Happens in Vegas is RECORDED in Heaven! I apologize to you Lord Jesus, that we are such big hypocrites in this country. 

You told us in 1st John 3:8... "He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." We not only commit sin in America, we parade it up and down our streets in the form of homosexual parades and public nudity. This is what God is talking about in 1st John 3:8. Gay pride is sinful pride. In Brattleboro, Vermont, citizens are legally allowed to walk aroundcompletely naked, and they do!

There is nothing as filthy in America today as County Music Television(CMT). CMT is nothing but a bunch of whores and whoremongers who don't care about morals or decency! I'm so sorry that we treat you like garbage Lord. 

Unbelievably, most of these country-music-singing-hypocrites call themselves Christians, who help produce lascivious videos to make a buck, and cause more sexual sins. We are so wicked Lord, that we even taunt your command not to commit idolatry by hosting a show calledAMERICAN IDOL. Carrie Underwood sings, Jesus Take the Wheel; but her personal life is an entirely different story, having been featured inSELF

I apologize on her behalf Lord, that she has mocked your name. Faith Hill, who has unrepentantly posed twice in Playboy, sang the Gospel hymn I Surrender All on the Oprah Winfreyshow. I'm sorry for her wickedness Lord. We area rotten bunch in America. We claim to trust in you; but we DON'T.

Woe unto America, we deserve the judgment we are bringing upon ourselves. Where is repentance? Where is sorrow over sin? Where is the guilt that we should have as a nation over our wickedness? We are a stiff-necked people, many of whom are working relentlessly to passanti-hate speech laws to shun the truth of God's Word concerning sin. No one is trying to shun the Atheists, homosexuals, Communists or feminists. No one is trying to shun Black Muslims who spew absolutely contempt and hatred for Caucasian people. No, but they want to shun Christians who Biblically speak out against the sin of homosexuality. This nation is headed for the dust! I apologize to you Lord, for we are a woefully sinful people.

I apologize to you God for the blasphemous ads ran on Washington D.C. buses throughout the Thanksgiving holidays in 2008. We are so ungrateful for your blessings in America. I'm sorry that we spit in your face in the United States. I'm sorry that Sarah Palin and many professed Christians like her call you a liar and a war criminal. I'm sorry that most of our churches are blinded by apostasy and support tyranny. I apologize that we are stealing Iraq's oil. Sadly, we arrogantly think we can do as we please in America and don't take responsibility for our actions as a nation. We are woefully guilty.

I am sorry Lord, that we are a nation of quitters and liars. Our divorce rate is higher than any nation on earth, bar none.  We Americans all exchange the same wedding vows... “For better, for worse; 'til death do us part”; BUT, then we look for excuses and reasons to justify a divorce when we want out. People do what they want to do, and then look for reasons to justify their actions, with no honest regard for the truth of your Word Lord. Evil people all across America are running around spouting, “Some marriages just weren't meant to be,” with absolutely no regard for their marriage vows, or Your Holy Word. 

We have deteriorated into a nation of liars, cheaters, and promise-breakers. We have sinned as a nation! Sadly, because of the evils of feminism, women file for divorce TWICE as much as men. We have spit on you God. It is utter evil. Our lawyers, judges, and politicians are world renowned LAIRS! Our kids are taught that it's ok to lie if they cross their fingers. We are a spiritually sick people.

We are a nation of idolaters, who worship rock stars and entertainers. We ought to fall on our faces before you Lord, and repent of our idolatry. We ought to burn every rock-n-roll recording in existence (and thankfully one day they will be, as you have promised). We are a rock-n-roll nation of fornicators, who have irresponsibly flaunted Your moral laws, and as a result have caused tens-of-millions of unwanted pregnancies. In our wickedness, we have stooped lower-than-low by murdering those same children through abortion. 

Isn't it convenient for us, to be able to just wash our hands of sin, and selfishly move on in our self-righteousness? We have declared it legal to disobey Exodus 20:13... “Thou shalt not kill.” We don't obey You Lord, and I apologize for the sins of my fellow countrymen. We are a nation of blood-thirsty murderers. Abortuaries exist all across America. Our political leaders have the audacity to make pompous speeches, bragging about how America is a nation that values life, when nothing could be further from the truth. Whether it be the terminated life of Terri Schiavo or the lives of the 48,000,000 aborted children—we are a nation of MURDERERS!!! We have defied Your authority God.

Ezra 9:6-7, “And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens. Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.”

I apologize to you God for the rebellion of the American people, from the United States to the island of Guam (America's furthest east territory), we have embraced sin. Our society is saturated with demonism—from hellish rock music to witchcraft, from rebellious wives to fornication, from feminism to lesbianism, from drunkenness to strip joints, from night clubs to gambling casinos, from immodestly dressed women to pornography—we have sinned against You oh Lord! The television (Hellivision) has become our god

We are not a stupid people Lord, for we have some of the most brilliant minds in the world in our nation; BUT, rather, we are a sinful people, who are willfully ignorant of Your Truths. We are a very foolish people, and a stubborn nation. We deserve judgment, and no blessing whatsoever. How dare any American today ask God to bless America—when we LEGALLY allow pornography, prostitution, rebellious wives, divorce, gambling, drunkenness, abortion, homosexuality, gay-marriages, lesbianism, adultery, fornication, witchcraft, nudity, psychics, Girls Gone Wild, and every other form of SINFUL  imaginable. 

I apologize to you God on behalf of my nation, for we are a sinful people filled with stubborn pride. We are spoiled in America, having an overabundance of food and consumer goods, enjoying your wondrous blessings; YET, we thanklessly call Christmas "X-Mas," and teach our children about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny instead of Jesus. We are a rotten bunch of ingrates in America. 

Jesus healed ten lepers, and only one came back to thank Him (Luke 17:12-18). Americans are amongst the nine lepers, who refuse to thank God for their blessings. We have become a gluttonous people oh Lord, eating like pigs and then searching for a drug to help us lose weight. We spend irresponsibly, and then gamble in an attempt to pay our bills. Instead of living for You Lord, Americans patronize night clubs, bars, and dance halls. We American's are infatuated with Dirty Dancing, Desperate Housewives, and Cheaters. Our TV shows curse You Lord, they make a joke of holiness, and mock the Bible. 

Americans use Your Holy name in vain more than any other nation on earth. Cursing in God's name has become the insignia of Hollywoodmovies, and we are guilty as a nation for supporting such blasphemy (Deuteronomy 5:11). We have treated you like our enemy oh Lord, and we deserve to be punished. Please judge us Lord, for we are a stubborn people blinded by our own sinful pride. Woe unto us Americans! 

Many of our top leaders are members of the demonic Bohemian Grove occult that worships Satan.  This includes Presidents Ronald Reagan and both Bushs. I'm sorry Lord, you deserve better. I apologize that the average believer in America is ignorant of these things, because they are too indifferent to care about the truth. While America's churches are filled Sunday after Sunday with with professed Christians, very few are taking a Biblical stand against evil in this nation. In fact, many of our churches are part of the problem. 

I apologize Lord for these disgraceful churches that are pro-abortion, and proudly march in pro-death rallies. I am so sorry that this church hired an ordained lesbian to be their associate pastor. Evidently insanity has crept into our churches, and is causing professed Christian to act crazy. Here's a pastor who thinks the murdering of 48,000,000 children is a MINOR CONCERN. Repent America!

We have sinned against you God, and I apologize from the bottom of my heart. Shame on us! I don't dare ask or expect You to bless my nation Lord, for we have abandoned You. God bless America? I think not. We have brought a curse upon ourselves Lord, by our own complacency and love for sin. Woe unto America! Even so come Lord Jesus.


"The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day." —Isaiah 2:11

APPLE OF GOD'S EYE~


When you become born again you are no longer a filthy hell bound sinner saved by grace. You are a precious holy righteous child of God saved by grace because of the imputed righteousness of Christ Jesus who lives in you.

However, a child of God will be known by their hatred for the things God hates (lying, gossip, lust, homosexuality, abortion, gay rights, alcohol, drugs, pornography, hate, pride, self love, self pity, system of religion, system of man, worldly customs, traditions, and pleasures).

They love what God loves (other born again brothers and sisters, God's Word, justice, righteousness, the poor in spirit, the lowly and helpless, the lost and blind, honesty, humbleness, meekness, truth).


Those born of the Spirit need to embrace their new citizenship of God's Kingdom in faith and gratitude to allow the Holy Spirit to do His work in full measure. Stop listening to the devil and his minions. You are the Apple of God's eye and nothing can separate you from the Father. Abide and seek!

OFFEND THEM WITH THE TRUE GOSPEL OR CODDLE THEM WITH LIES



The gospel is offensive! Why? Who wants to hear "*your not good enough?*". Man wants to think there is something good in him to earn salvation. They want to work up their own blood sweat and tears into heaven instead of accepting the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ.

Grace is offensive to those who are perishing. To those who are forever saved and sealed by the Holy Spirit it is a beautiful and joyful blessing! 

Once we are in Christ ALL of our sins, past present and future are forgiven. Unregenerate man hates to hear this!  It's offensive!  But to say anything different is to say that Jesus our Shepherd can't keep track of His sheep, His elect, His own beloved children that God knew before the world was ever created.

When somebody hears the *true* gospel with a heart prepared by God, it should bring him to his knees begging for Jesus to save him because he knows without Jesus he is doomed and hell-bound.

It is ALL Jesus not man. Once God puts His hand on a man or woman they can't help but change from the inside out. If not, then they are not one of His.


Romans 8:9 Romans 8:9 (NKJV)  But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now *if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His*

WILL AMERICA EVER REPENT? MATT 10:33



I hear so many Christians claiming America's need of repentance but what does that mean? According to Jesus Christ repentance is turning away from all idolatry, sin, and false gods while turning to the Almighty God in faithful obedience.


What would this look like? Our schools would welcome and insist on daily prayer to God/Jesus Christ without fear of offending anyone. Our government and courtrooms would be governed and lead by God and His Word instead of mans desires and agendas. Gay marriage and abortion would be illegal and viewed as God views it instead of how sinners view it. Our military would not only welcome but demand obedience to Jesus Christ while seeking His will and shunning all man- made gods.


Could this ever happen? Can America as a Nation every repent and turn to faith in God alone? God always has a remnant of faithful followers and they are the only thing holding His judgment of wrath back for a time. Why? Is God is waiting for this remnant to stand in the gap between Himself and men in hopes of one last chance to turn back to Him?


Every true Christian can make a difference in their community by taking a stand for God. If you have kids in school that would be the place to start. When did it become ok to fear the offense of men over fear of offending God?  Days of Noah? Any church who studies the Word of God should know what happens when a nation does this and its time to wake up because judgment is at the door. No military in the world can protect a nation who has forsaken and turned away from God. Are pastors teaching this?


Christians all over the world are being murdered for their faith and it's coming to America. Denying the truth won't make it go away. For our kids sake we better get on our knees and seek God with a humble heart.  I feel God is grieving and angered over America who was once blessed because her leaders faith in God~ yet now our leaders mock Him while condoning and celebrating the things He hates! Don't claim to be a Christian if you fear making a stand against what Jesus would call a rebellious wicked self-righteous stiff-necked generation heading for destruction unless she repents.


Will Christ find faith on earth when He returns? Luke 18:8


The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt , they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Psalm 14:1


Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you, Reprove a wise man and he will love you. Proverbs 9:8


And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God relented of the disaster, that he had said that he would bring upon them; and he did it not. Jonah 3:10

But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven. Matt 10:33

BE TRUE TO YOUR CALLING



We are to be true to our calling. Christ calls us each to do the Fathers will in different ways with different gifts. The body of Christ knowing this should never rebuke or judge another because their gift in ministry is different.

Some are watchmen and trumpet blowers, while others are encouragers and prayer worriers. All are important but all different. Some can be seen in the world some are hidden. Ezekeil (my favorite) was forced by God to sit and watch evil and wickedness all around him without saying a word. This made him hard and bitter I'm sure! But God used that build up and put His Word/Spirit into Ezekeil commanding Him to speak hard core truth to the society in which he lived.

Our messages will be different based on our anointing and our place in this world. We should embrace (love) our brethren and their spiritual gifts and never rebuke, judge, belittle or envy them. The enemy loves to cause strife in this way and also loves to keep people blind and ignorant to his tactics and truth being hidden by the media.

God will use His watchmen to warn of truth which to many will cause fear which causes hate. A closed mind is usually due to fear and pride. An open humble mind is wise and open to Spiritual truth and discernment. 


Be true to who you are in Christ. Don't doubt or fear but trust and obey God acknowledging Him always to guide you on your path as a channel to a lost dark deceived world. And don't let the enemy shut you up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FOREIGNER IN A STRANGE LAND~HEBREWS 13:14


Imagine waking up in a strange country where you recognize no one. Walking around you quickly realize they speak a strange language and practice strange customs, traditions, celebrations and worship strange gods. You start to feel very much alone. Ephesians 2:19

Suddenly you come across someone who speaks your language! Come to find out you both share the same citizenship while learning there are others like you scattered across this foreign country. You have all been sent by your Commander in Chief (Jesus) as Ambassadors to warn these people they are living an Imitation of the real True life. 2 Cor. 5:20

You head out on the great commission to speak truth warning these foreigners their country will be destroyed and they must convert to your homeland in order to be saved. Their gods and traditions are not real, there is only One True Way to life and freedom. John 4:16

Although faced with much hate, ridicule, and rejection you remain loyal to your Commander in Chief by speaking Words that the only hope for salvation from destruction is to be willing to forsake all, friends, loved ones, and the comforts of all they know to follow the Way (Christ) to true life instead of this imitation life they have been deceived into believing.

Many are called but few are willing to leave this strange imitation life to become citizens of the only True Way to God's Kingdom life. God is calling many through his Ambassadors today. Willing hearts will hear. Stony hearts will reject. Matthew 13:10-23

THE DAY OF THE LORD~GLORY OR DOOM?



Zephaniah is a very short but great prophetic book in the bible about the Day of the Lord when God brings His judgement upon the entire world. God is going to expose and destroy all hypocrisy and self righteous false religion as well as the complacent, the naysayers, the wicked, and unbelievers. Nothing will be left untouched and there will be no place to hide.

The name Zephaniah means the Lord Hides. Meaning the true house of God  who's hearts have come out of the system of man and religion will have a place of refuge and shelter. Their hearts are being prepared in the refiners fire now (Consecration) for what is to come. 

Believe it or not the world's only hope comes through God's judgement. God is just and will bring justice and restoration.


We can not divert or pray against the world's judgement for it is necessary and certain. However, the anointed have already received God's punishment against their sin through Jesus on the Cross. Those who refuse Christ today will face the wrath to come.


Jesus freed us from condemnation when we abide in Him and are no longer living for the world but forsaking all to follow Him. It is a personal relationship and no religion or good behavior will do. He is our only refuge and hiding place. ASK (Ask. Seek. Knock.) Luke 11:9

The Great Day of the Lord

“I will utterly consume everything
From the face of the land,”
Says the Lord;
“I will consume man and beast;
I will consume the birds of the heavens,
The fish of the sea,
And the stumbling blocks[a] along with the wicked.
I will cut off man from the face of the land,”
Says the Lord.

ALL GLORY TO GOD=HUMBLE SUBMISSION



Fear of loosing ones salvation has created a ring of pride in the christian world today. Fear doubt and unbelief are the devils favorite weapon to paralyze separate and blind God's people for without faith we can not please the Father.  Heb. 3:19 

Salvation is nothing we do but what Jesus has done. God chose us we don't choose God. It is God who sanctifies, consecrates, justifies, and redeems man. The only thing man can do is reject and blasphemy what is given. 

The Holy Spirit will not allow His temple to practice old habits of porn,booze, gossip, lies, slandering brethren etc. but will consume the conscious to hate it as He does.  

It is by the grace of God we are who we are. 1 Cor. 15:10 God will never forsake or abandon His own even if they do fall into sin. Falling and practicing are not the same.

When we become born again we are no longer our own but a new Spiritual creation purchased by the blood of God into His eternal Kingdom family and it will be evident by the separation from this world and Oneness in Christ.  

I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.

John 10:29  My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.

"Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.

For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.

And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will,


for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
