All things in common

Verse

“And all that believed were together, and had all things common;”
Acts 2:44 KJV


We all need to be on the same page with our Christian beliefs.  Christ was born, He died and rose again to take away our sins.  All He requires of us is to love Him and keep His laws!  And so, as Christians we should do this so that we may be saved.  In order to do effectively, we need to consistently search the scriptures to understand how to love and how to properly keep the law.

Prayer:

Lord,thank you for dying on the cross to save us from our sins.  Help us to give up all we have and follow You.  Help us to understand Your laws and to love You with all Your heart, but first help us to know what that requires.  Teach us Your laws and statutes by guiding us in our scriptural search.  

You are our Maker and King and we thank You for Your grace! 

In Your Name Amen

Signs of the times

Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. 

Luke 21:10&11

Today as I type Luke 21:10&11 is taking place in full effect!  2015 has been a very prophetic year.  If ever there was a time to get your life together and get closer to God it's now.  When life is so uncertain  Jesus is a constant, He never fails.  

I urge you all to make a conscious decision to start that Bible Study, watch Sermons from preachers that don't just preach "surface gospel" but gives hardcore facts and Bible verses to back it up!

Let's pray for those in various countries who are experiencing earthquakes, terrorism and famine.  

I will also pray for you the reader that you may find God and that you may let Him lead your life.

Prayer:
Father, I thank you for your mercy and grace.  I thank you for sparing my life to see a new day.  Today Lord I pray for those who are hurting in this world, those who are mourning the loss of loved ones , those who are experiencing destruction and chaos all around.  Comfort them Lord and help them to find solace in you.

I ask father that you will help me and all those reading this to draw closer to you, show us how to stay focused and in your word.  Help us to realize that time is extremely short and your coming is at the door. We want to be like the 5 wise virgins with their lamps trimmed and ready.  Lord you are our strength so help us to not be afraid but to eagerly await your return armed with the truth.  You are everything Oh Lord and we praise you! 
In Your Name Amen

Out with the old....

“In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.” - Hebrews 8:13 KJV

“Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.”
Hebrews 7:27 KJV

I'm currently studying the book of Hebrews and little by little the Holy Spirit is revealing clearly things I need to see.

But first let me pray for you the reader that the Holy Spirit will lead you to understand.

"Father, I thank you for your Grace and Love, I thank you for sending your son to die on the cross so that our sins can be forgiven.  I thank you for the gift of eternal life. I pray today that all who read this understand and that they will have a hunger to search the scriptures and to know your truth.  

Thank you for your mercy and grace. In your name Amen


First lets go over the two verses I posted above..

Hebrews 7&8

We know that the children of Israel where appointed a priest through the lineage of Levi, they had to offer up daily sacrifices through the priest so their sins can be forgiven.  Now this was the covenant that was made for them prior to Jesus death. Now that Jesus made the sacrifice on the cross there is no need for sacrifices, burnt offerings and the priest being a mediator.  Thus that covenant "decayeth" and is now done away with.  

With that being said we now know that asking a priest to intercede on our behalf or even the fact that there are still priests that carry on a good portion of what should be obsolete is in direct disregard to what the Bible teaches.  

So now we know that Christ died for our sins and that we can go directly to Him whenever we need to, Isn't that wonderful?

I pray for you today that God will continue to reveal His truth to you.  Just pray continually and search the scriptures daily.

 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

What do we really believe?


“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Colossians 2:8 KJV


 The other day I had a discussion about a certain faith's daily custom, and it brought me to wonder, "Does what we do in our faith really bring honor and glory to God? Or is it just "fluff" created by man to veer us away from knowing the real truth?"

God left us a book ; a manual as you will, written by the chosen who were inspired by the Holy Spirit and instructed by God. Everything that God intended for us to learn and instructions on how we must live our lives and worship Him are written in the Bible. 

The world of religion is so full of varied beliefs, but do we really truly believe?  Or are we just following because they say so?  Have you really searched the scriptures to know your truth or are you going to take their word for it?

 2 Timothy 2:15 says:
 

 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."

Also,

Galatians 6:4-8 says: But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For every man shall bear his own burden. Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." 

If you are dedicated to a specific religion make sure that what your learning is in alignment with God's word, it's important that we aren't adding our own beliefs contrary to what the bible instructed.
 

Revelation 22:18-19 "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

In this day and age people are so busy that they don't  really study for themselves,  they think an hour in church should do it for them and that's all they need for the week, convenient right? Let the leader of the church do the leg work and let me hear his opinion.  You know the saying "I'll take your word for it?" Never mind all the extras that are in complete defiance of God's word..

When studying, be sure you are reading the right Bible. I made an important discovery,  I was recently researching about the New Version Bibles ie: NIV etc. (Did you know NIV has now been taken over by the same publishers that publish the Satanic Bible? Don't believe me? Look it up in Harper Collins).

I want you all to read the contents of the below link and really ponder what is happening in these last days...

http://www.mountainretreatorg.net/apologetics/whyweuse.shtml
To me it's as plain as day.  Satan is very rapidly trying to grab any and everyone because he knows his time is short.  I understand how difficult it may be for Bible newcomers to understand all the old terms, if you pray first and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you and help you to understand the word, you'll see a difference!

My friends, if you've taken the time to read my post you made the right step! The next step is to pray and pick up the word, Religion is awesome in a way because it gets you started and hopefully in the right direction, just make sure what you hear is in alignment with Gods word, don't be gullible, you wouldn't trust eating something from a restaurant if you didn't know what's in it right?

I'll say a special prayer for you: 

Father, impress upon the minds of those, the urgency to search the scriptures, Your coming is imminent even at the door, please see the willingness of all those wanting the truth and reveal to them everything they need to know about You.  

Thank you for your mercy in Your Holy name, Amen!

Trust God


Read: 

Exodus 4,5 & 14

I'm currently reading the story of Moses, you know the part where Pharaoh makes the children of Israel make bricks with no straw?  It was hard for Moses to understand what God was trying to do, even when He had performed all the miracles up on that mountain for Moses to see - turning sticks into serpents and inflicting temporary leprosy, God had a plan!  We all know the ending of this story but boy it took a whole lot of wandering, punishments and miracles for the children of Israel to finally get it! My question for you is do you get it?  God makes amazing, miraculous and wonderful things happen for us because He loves us so, and we revel and bask and praise Him for He has been so kind to us but then months later when trouble abounds we find ourselves worrying and complaining and weeping and suddenly we forget that not to long ago we were relishing in our blessings.  It's so easy to forget that all we need to do is pray, trust and have faith.  It's that simple!  How can we forget? He did part the waters for the children of Israel and cause the Egyptian soldiers to drown,  so I'm sure that your small or your seemingly large issues is not too big for God to handle.  

My simple message to you is trust Him, He'll see you through.

Pray this:

Lord, I love you, I thank you for you are holy, worthy and mighty.  Help me not to forget how mighty you are.  Help me to remember that nothing is too hard for you and that you can hear me before I even open my mouth to pray, help me to realize that you understand my needs and you know what's best for me.  Help me Lord to trust in your timing, believe in your powers and to wait on your word.  -- In Your holy name, Amen

Overcoming Strongholds

Bible Verse

For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, 2 Corinthians 10:3-5


When we come to Christ, the army of the Lord invades our life; the battle for territory has begun.  Satan is not willing to give ground to his enemy, the Lord of Hosts; he does not want us to live a successful spiritual life.  Therefore, his goal is to keep as many strongholds standing in our life as he can, allowing him to wage war on our souls.  Remember, Satan goal is to prevent the power of God, from being established in the believer’s life.   He does this through strongholds, if Satan can establish areas of operation in our life; he then will have the ability to attack at will.  He can then keep us from being on the offensive, against his kingdom.
            For this reason, it’s imperative for us to have these Satanic strongholds pulled down.  If we don’t remove strongholds, we invite failure and defeat in our spiritual walk.  Because we are giving Satan a base from which to wage war.  The only way we can assault spiritual strongholds is through the power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in our life.  Without the heavenly power, in our lives we are at Satan’s mercy.  The Holy Spirit through Paul shows us how to wage war. truthnet.org 

Prayer
Lord you are our God, you are the almighty and only you can help us break free from the satanic strongholds of life.  Help us to realize that strongholds are anything that takes presedence over you, anything that brings us down anything that has a negative effect on our lives whether now or in the future.  Lord help us to be vigilant in making every effort to remove the strongholds from our lives,  help us to realize that we can only do this by asking you for your help.  So please, in your mercy and your power help us overcome.. Praise you!  In your name amen!

Communion & it's importance

Jesus was with his disciples on the night he was to be betrayed.  He broke bread and drank wine, then He told his disciples to do this in remembrance of him.

This should still be continued even today and should be performed with the greatest of reverence.

Let us remember the one who sacrificed his life for us by actively taking part in communion.
