To the Lovely, Strong People of Hong Kong and Taiwan & A Salvation Prayer

 
















  
What you must know is this: 
Jesus loves you, simply and purely.  
He sees your heart and mind, your struggles, your hurts, disappointments, and your fears.  
He hears your laughter and knows whom you love.  He loves you unconditionally, Friend!!!  
He knows each thought that you have, your dreams and goals in Life.

Please know that I am praying for you!  I want you to keep your freedom and have no strife.  

God loves you more than I can say, more than I can know, or dream.  Please read The Holy Bible and pray; you will see and experience how he loves you, beyond any calculation, more than we can understand on earth.

The reason that I am writing this special posting, just to you! is that my heart goes toward you beautiful children of God.  I am praying fervently for your desires and dreams, and I will continue praying for you, Dear Friends!  God bless you in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, always and forever. 

Jesus said: (John 15:12 and John 15:17.)    12 “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.   17 These things I command you, so that you will love one another.

(John 3:16, NKJV, New King James Version) For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (Romans 3:23) for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 6:23) For the wages of sin is death, but the [a]gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

God loves you and each one of us more than we can fully know now.  I so hope and pray that you have asked Jesus into your Life. Please, if you have not accepted Him as your Lord and personal Savior, do so now!  Your Life is worth everything to God, and He will protect you.  God the Father gave up His One and Only Son to give us Life eternal. Jesus created you in His own image! The Holy Spirit will lead, guide, and comfort you.  When your Life has ended here, you will go to Heaven to be forever with Jesus and your family and many new friends!  

This posting will bring more awareness to people everywhere, who will in turn be praying for your safety, salvation, and freedom!!!  People watch the news, read online, and read newspapers...  Many folks pray for you all over the world. The Lord God wants all of us to have His salvation.  He is the only One Who has the power to do so for us.

The Word Became Flesh

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] 

John 1:1-5 New International Version (NIV)


A Brief Summary about Christ Jesus

Jesus lived a perfect and faultless life on earth, born of Mary and the Holy Spirit of Almighty God.  He worked as a carpenter with his earthly father Joseph, then when he was thirty years old, Jesus began His ministry.  He preached the Truth.  He performed many miracles. He said that He was God, which is the Truth, but the Jewish priests and leaders would not have it: Jesus was undermining their rule.  At the age of 33, Jesus was such a threat to the Jewish leaders they told Caesar that Jesus was ruining their Roman empire and would bring them down.  The Roman soldiers arrested Jesus and beat and tortured Him, nailing Jesus on the cross at Calvary. Jesus was fully God and fully Man, the Only One.  The perfect, unblemished Lamb of God gave up His life for you and me.  Taking on all of the sin that had ever been or would ever be, He took my sin, He died and was buried in a tomb with mammoth rocks over the sepulcher to secure the burial.  In three days, Jesus arose and walked out of His tomb. For 40 days He was seen by over 500 people.  With Jesus' followers/disciples watching Him, Jesus ascended to Heaven to sit at the right hand of His Father, where Jesus intercedes for us.

We believe in the One true God Almighty, Triune in Person and Spirit: God the Father, the Son Christ Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, Who comes to live inside each of us the moment that we say Yes! I believe in You, Jesus, Son of God!!!

If you have not accepted Christ, and want to be in God's Kingdom beginning right now on earth and then one day go to Heaven forevermore, pray this prayer.  You can also tell God in your own words.  Jesus is fully Man and fully God.  He is listening to your every hope and desire.  You are His daughter or son, again loving us more than we can know right now.

There is nothing magical about this particular prayer.  When you pray it and mean it, Yes! you will be saved and go to Heaven in time to be with saved family and the Lord God Almighty.  If you want to tell Father God in your own words, please do so.  If you have fallen away, read this prayer.

A Salvation Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

I want to give my Life to You.  You made me in Your own image! You knew about me before the beginning of the world because You, Great God, know everything that has happened, is happening, and will be happening.  I want to be Your child, Lord and Savior, for now and eternity! 

I have fallen short, and I am sorry; thank You for being so generous, loving, gracious, and compassionate that You want to be with me protecting, loving, listening, and talking together. You have redeemed me, Lord, when You died on the cross for me, were buried, then arose, and seeing many people, You ascended to Heaven.  I know I will make mistakes, but You will forgive me, instruct me, and guide, comfort me.  You do not accuse Your believers; that is the devil.  Now that I accept and welcome you, God, into my Life forevermore, Your Holy Spirit will come to be with me constantly to guide, protect, and soothe me.  He will give me conviction!  Thank You forever, Almighty God, my personal Savior Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit- You are Three Persons in One, and yet You are Spirit.  I love and thank you, all glory to You always and forever, in Jesus' Name, Amen.

Brother and Sister, Congratulations!!!  You are God's daughter or son and in His Kingdom ever here beginning on Earth and then in His timing, Heaven!  What a mighty, smart, and loving decision for Him and yourself  you have made, Friend!  I wish I could shake your hand and give you a Bible.

We are praying for all peoples, especially those in extreme hardship, despair, and suppression/oppression.

God bless His Creation, always and forever.

Who or What is Keeping You From Jesus? A Salvation Prayer, Scriptures



Inspire Jesus Christ Boy Print Picture by David Bowman Religious Spiritual Art



Copyright free painting from David Bowmen- Thank You, David! I appreciate your deep insight into our Lord and Savior with one of His children.  Thank you!
Do you see the glow in the face of both the little boy and in the face of his Savior and Lord?  They are so happy!!!  Looking ahead, looking toward the future, a sight for sore eyes, the each of them.  Jesus has his arm around the boy's sweet back- this boy is one of the Lord God's creation, made in His own image!  So thrilling it all is!
Just think how it will be for you and me when we behold Christ's gorgeous face and loveliness as we are together with Him, for always!  There is none other, no greater Joy for which we can hope and look forward to, one day.  We know and have His Promise of being in Heaven when we have taken Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.  
How very incomparable and beautiful it will be one day, when the ties of this Earth have released us to be forever in Heaven with our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus!  Such glory, honor, praise, and Joy forever and evermore.  It is almost too much to imagine.  But, it WILL happen one day, there is not doubt, whatsoever.
Almighty God promises us this gift in glory with our Savior forever and ever.

~~~The Most Important Question You Will Ever Be Asked~~~

Do you believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?  
If so, what factors caused you to look to Him as God, to depend upon Him for your afterlife, i.e., going to Heaven, when you pass on?  Do you walk with Him each day?  
Our Christian faith states, breathes, and beckons us that the One God is Triune in Person and Spirit: the Father, the Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.  Being the son or daughter of Jesus, the Lord God, most clearly includes reading and studying the Word of God, the Holy Bible; if at all possible finding and attending a Jesus Christ believing church and being active there- in the community, and around the world with support to missions; helping and loving your neighbor as yourself; and there are other ways to worship and be oh-so-close to the Son of God- for example, that all-empowering communication called Prayer!  In my estimation, that aspect is essential- talking with Almighty God!  
God in His All-powerful, all knowing, and present everywhere at the same time- I AM that I AM wants to speak with you!  With me!  Almost unbelievable, but absolutely true. The King of the universe WANTS a relationship with each of us.

The title of this posting is: Who or What is Keeping YOU from Jesus?  If  you are not being kept away and have the personal relationship with Christ, Praise God!  You might want to continue reading for continued encouragement and helpful ideas about how to help bring your loved ones and other folks into the fold.

The Bible tells us that it is the Holy Spirit of God that draws us to a relationship with Jesus Christ.  The One Almighty LORD God, Who is Triune in Persons: is the Father; Jesus, the Son; and the Holy Spirit of God. Jesus came to the Earth as a baby born of the Spirit of God coming over Mary, Jesus' earthly mother, to one day walk among people, according to His Father's will. Jesus was fulfilling God's promise to Israel and all of humanity. Jesus' ministry to bring the Good News, the Gospel, was to tell mankind of God's great love above all and for each and all.  Jesus would die on the cross, the Perfect Lamb of God, Who was and is the only One who could expiate the Father's wrath that humanity, each of us, had sinned again and again against the LORD God.  

~~~Two Anecdotes of Pain~~~ 

Recently I had a lesion removed from my tongue.  The oral surgeon used Novocaine, but it did not seem nearly adequate to ward off the pain.  Without being frightening, I just want to say that this procedure, the complete excision/removal of the cyst, mild dysplasia/pre-cancer, was one of the most horrible experiences I have had... and I am 69 years old, and I have given birth to two children, and suffered excruciating migraines, to say that I have experienced some extreme pain in life .  This oral surgery was not even close to the suffering our Lord Jesus endured FOR US, so that all of the sin ever done or would be, was heaped upon Him to pay the price to God for OUR sins. 
Then, when our children were in high school and college, I had a terrible car accident 18 years ago with 2+ years of surgeries and rehabs.  I still suffer the effects of that day when I lost control of our car.  The car accident and healing was long-lasting and awful. However, one of my closest Christian friends asked me later if I would give up the closeness that it brought me to the Lord; it was like night and day- my Christian faith and walk with Jesus before and then after this car wreck.  "No!" I told my friend at her inquiry about giving up my so much closer walk with God versus being spared the intense pain and difficulties of the accident.  I called on Jesus as I lay there pinned in the car, and my husband Royce--- who was in another car ahead of me on the road and saw everything of the wreck in his rear view mirror--- watched on and talked with me while it would take some time for the Volunteer Firemen of Osage City to extricate me from the crushed car and put me on a Life Flight helicopter to St. Joseph's trauma unit in KCMO.  During all of this, I remember calling on Jesus immediately in my mind while I visually could see nothing as I lay there in the car, and- then I barely heard my husband Royce's voice and the volunteer chief firefighter talking to me.  God moved so incredibly throughout this whole time, and He took me from being a fairly regular, maybe lukewarm? Christian woman to a full-bore, totally in love with Christ Jesus prayer warrior and Good News servant and apostle!  Albeit, the anguish to my family: Royce, and our two young, grown children was incalculable.  I wish they could have been spared.   Yes, I know they grew in their faith, too, but you would have to ask them...

This sacrifice of Jesus Christ the Son of God allowed each of us the Gift to accept Jesus' sacrifice, to believe in Him, and only Him, so that we could walk with Him and then one day when we pass away, we will go to Heaven to live forever--- with God and all of the other folks who have chosen Jesus as their Savior!  Hopefully, we will have ALL of our family, friends, and important people in our lives there with us, PLUS innumerable new FRIENDS, folks of the faith from the Bible, and so on... 
The opposite of not accepting Christ Jesus is that when one day anyone who rejected Christ as his/her Lord and Savior will go to Hell to be separated from God forever.  It is almost too horrifying to contemplate, but we must. Darkness, demons, perhaps no one whatsoever, ALONE and away from God and everyone we love.  I have tears in my eyes as I think of this fate...and such a totally unnecessary one! 

The Bible is a tribute to one of the following facts: God is struck to the core when one of those He made from His own image does not choose to go to Heaven to be forevermore with Him; Jesus is crushed beyond even what we could feel for our own daughter or son, or husband, sister... Some folks have said that WE choose where we go in the afterlife- we choose Heaven or Hell, and I believe this with every shred and fiber of my being as I have grown in my maturity in the faith. Nonetheless, again I am crying thinking especially about the two people in my Life who are uncertain in their choice.  There are others for whom I am weak with concern and love in not knowing because THEY do not know or have not made the certain choice yet of "YES, I CHOOSE YOU, JESUS CHRIST, as MY LORD AND SAVIOR!" Why be uncertain about the most IMPORTANT DECISION that you will ever make!  What is there to wonder? I ask you!!!  Come to Jesus right now!  Tell Him in your own words that you believe in Him as your Lord and Savior, and you accept Him.  There is a Salvation Prayer below that you can read and say to Jesus.  Do not wait one more moment or one more time!  Jesus wants YOU, my friend.  He made you from His own image; He gave you a soul and a spirit, a free will.  None of His other creatures, the animals have a soul or free will.  God loves you this much to make up your own mind about His Son Christ.

Sometimes, there are loved ones, even people whom we did not really know or who are a stranger across the world, whom we do not know how they chose or did not choose Life With Christ before death.  In those cases, we must rely on the Truth of God and give our concerns, as deep as they might be, back to Him.  This, another vital reason to pray for salvation and the right choice for individuals we love or even hate while they are alive on Earth (Jesus said to love and pray for our enemies: Matthew 5:43-48) Jesus said, Love Your Enemies and Pray for Those Who Persecute You. You can tell, write about and speak with people we know at work, in our families, in our neighborhoods, to study the Word, to spread the Good News, the Gospel of Christ, the "Greatest Story Ever Told!"

I have shared my personal story of returning and truly accepting Jesus as my Savior and the Lord of my Life.  It is not too late to accept now.  Do not hesitate, nor wait, Dear Friends!
Please click this link to read my posting in the blog regarding how I was drawn to Jesus as my Lord and Savior and when I accepted Him- of this, I am absolutely sure!  Praise my LORD!

A Prayer for Salvation in Jesus Christ

Dearest Father in Heaven,
I know I have sinned and fallen short of Your glory.  I also do know that you forgive me completely because You have promised me this through the cross that Your Son Jesus bore where He died, was buried, then rose from the grave.  He walked among women and men and then he rose to Heaven to sit at Your right hand, Father.  He left so that the Holy Spirit of God would come to Earth to live and to draw each one of us to believe in Jesus.  I accept you, my Beautiful Jesus!  You are my Savior and my Lord!  Thank You, thank You, God!
In Jesus' Name,
Amen!

Being Thankful for the Many Wonders, Gifts, and Goodness of God Toward Us!!



Canada Geese, Goose, Branta Canadensis
Thank you, Pixaby, for your copyright free photo.

I published this story on The Healing is Always Christ several years ago.  I have been seeing many geese flying, on the ground, and they always make me and my family happy.  We see God's grace, beauty, love for animals and love for our eyes and minds that He created...to behold His Earthly Kingdom.  
If you have read the title story below, please read it again and pass it along to your family and to your friends; I think you will find some Joy!
(More anecdotes about our friends, the geese, as an 
***End Note after this story...)

A Very Special Canadian Goose Story
(or, Two Geese to Get My Attention)

There are many beautiful stories about geese: their loyalty, how they stick together and work together, and how they mate for life.  Probably the most famous one that comes to mind is the one about how they fly in a V, and if one falls behind or gets hurt and is grounded, then another from the V-formation comes to its aid until the hurt one is ready to go again.
Today I have a story for you that came directly from God, through the Holy Spirit, to me.  I watched the story unfold one day, and it has sustained me, showing the great love and power that the Lord gives us daily.
One day last spring I was particularly bedraggled and upset.  The weight of continuing financial burdens had hit me particularly hard for certain reasons, I am sure.  As I pulled up to the bank to go inside, I noticed two Canadian geese.  They are often in pairs and also seen around that area...  One goose was eating hungrily, not in a panicked-fashion, from the grassy patch; the other goose stood on one foot only- an entertainment to my eye- nearby the first goose that was eating.  Another bank customer and I were amused at the two geese as we walked to the door to enter, and I commented that I thought the one eating was probably the female and that the one protecting her was the male.  Inside the bank I transacted my business, came outside, and the pair were still in the same general vicinity but had moved somewhat.  This time the female was still grazing, and the male goose had moved closer toward her, and he was on one foot again.  Same foot? I do not know!  Mentally, I remarked how sweet and wondrous that he would have moved to keep close to her, and yet, he had put one of his feet up again to rest!  My, was he steadfast, and still, he had not eaten yet!


I got into my car, somewhat lighter from the beauty of the picturesque geese, but I was still heavy-laden in my mind with financial burdens.  Suddenly, the thought struck me: I am extremely blessed to have a husband just like that little man-goose!  Yes, my husband is like that bird!  The Lord had shown me in a very glorious way that I should not worry about bills and money because I have been exceedingly blessed with a husband who cares for me, loves me, and protects me.  How much greater a blessing it is than to worry about money!  Even more, I thought, God has given me blessed assurance through my Jesus Christ- eternal life in glory!  He is taking care of me and us now.  What worries could I have?  Through those magnificent geese I could see the love that God has for them, and how much more love, unfathomable, His love for me.
James 1:2-3,12
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.  Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
   Donna M., Copyright 2008
***End Note: This spring 2020, my husband, our grown son, and I have at different times seen our beloved Canadian geese again!  I personally felt that we had not seen as many this year, perhaps the last few years since we moved from our house to our apartment.  Maybe the location, not greatly different, but different enough to make the difference?  Or, was it bad effects of the weather, the climate, the season, or God forbid, environmental causes!? 
Not too long after these misgivings, we heard some geese flying over where we live~ Praise the LORD!  
Other happenings: my husband and I were driving along, and as we slowed down to come to a stop, Royce said, "Look at the grass to our side!"  Two geese were in the grass, one eating and grazing and the other watching over her! Indeed, the male was giving cover to his mate while she feasted : )
Our son sent a picture of two geese he saw, and we have seen other pairings, groups.  I am very, very happy...what a beautiful and magnificent world God has created here on Earth until Heaven and Earth join one another some day, all for His might and glory, Amen.

God is the Potter, and We are His Clay & A Salvation Prayer for You!

Jeremiah 18:2-6; Isaiah 64:8; many more herein


















When the LORD Almighty makes us a promise, it is solid- He is the Rock, our Promise, the Cornerstone, Jehovah Rapha, El Roi, the Maker of the Way, the Light on our Life, and yea, even our Light for the pathway and lamp for our feet
. (Psalm 119:105 105Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. He is the Promise Keeper, our Faith, our Trust, and Hope.  He always delivers what He says He will.  He is the Rock of our Salvation!!!  Forever and forever. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

I was raised by a Christian mother who loved Jesus very, very much.  She still does- she is with alive in Him and with Him now in Heaven for eternity! She has a real body and can run, pray, talke with family and friends; she makes new friends and has unbelievable experiences never known before!  New colors unseen!  She is the most pretty, the most happy and alive, and she is with God!  She gets to see Jesus all of the time.  Dorothy Ella Binder McCoy lives in the glory of God, for always and always.  The daughter of Christian parents, she is one of ten children. I know this as surely as I am telling you right now!

God's Promise to Us- 

John 14:1-6 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many [a]mansions; if it were not so, [b]I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the ONLY fully holy God, fully Man, Who has ever walked the Earth and then was crucified upon the cross, perfectly innocent as a lamb, the Lamb of God, to expiate, take our sins, and arose to Heaven to rule the world with perfect love and perfect justice.  He is Joyful if you have already accepted His Promise of Life everlasting in Heaven!  If you have not done so yet, or need desperately to recommit to Jesus, please do so by now sincerely saying this prayer to God (you may also tell Him in your own words...). 

God made it so that each of us can know absolutely! where we are going when we die; it says so in the Bible! Believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, that He is the Son of God Who gave His Life for YOU and ME, died, was resurrected, and now sits at the right hand of His Father in Heaven...sincerely tell the LORD so, in a prayer about yourself and Him!  

A Prayer of Salvation
It is for you to tell God if you sincerely, with your heart and mind, want to repent and turn toward the Great I Am and to believe in Jesus Christ: our Lord and Savior~~~ fully God and holy, and also fully Man who was and is without sin, Jesus is the perfect, beautiful, King of kings and LORD of lords, the Almighty.  He is One of the Trinity of God, the One and only One God.

Dearest Father in Heaven, 
I am so thankful that you have made me and have a plan just for me.  You gave Your only begotten Son Jesus the Christ to take my place for the forgiveness of my sins.  How can I thank You enough?  I believe that Jesus is my Lord and my Savior, and I want to go to Heaven when I pass on from this Earth, where I will be with you forever and ever!  It will be something I have never seen or could see anywhere else in the world.  No crying, no worrying, love and laughter and greater things to see with my own eyes!  I turn from my sins; please forgive me, God, and help me to stay on your true and loving path.  
In Jesus' Name, Amen.

You have done it!  You can use this prayer or others, or your own way of telling God if you accept Him; you are His forever and always, in to eternity.  If you have been saved but need to recommit, please do so now, with that prayer, or your own words!  God knows your every thought and feeling, you heart and mind.
New believer or one who recommits to Jesus, find a church where you are authentically welcome, with believers in Christ Jesus- alone- no other false gods or shams of ceremonies; the Bible is believed, preached, and followed.  And NOW you have the Holy Spirit, Who has come to live with you here and now to guide you, direct you, speak to you, and many more- all good things!

God bless you.  I pray for you daily, sister and brother in Christ.  We are now truly called the children of God!

Childhood Memories

My mom always took my sister and me to church.  Our dad came with us at least twice a year at Christmas and Easter- I have the priceless pictures, to me, to show that fact.  We girls- Mom, Sherry and I were wearing our Easter bonnets, darling dresses, gloves (in the fifties) and socks or hose with beautiful patent leather Mary Janes (shoes)- Mom had her black heels, of course.  Dad wore a handsome black suit with white shirt and a tie, and he had on extra polished black wingtips (once again, shoes)!  We had pictures by the family car.  
I was dedicated and accepted Christ (not really sure on the latter) at age 8; however, I know for certain that I took Christ into my heart and mind at age 25, believing in Him and following Him all the days of my Life. Links to my salvation story...
What a difference He has made in my Life!  I feel His Presence, the Holy Spirit ministers and guides me, and I have felt His power grow stronger and stronger.  I physically sense by the power of my upper body when He wants me to worship Him, to have time alone together, and to perhaps hear His voice. Sometime I will explain more about this progression of an intimate, loving God- always very decent, never pushy, and softly being with me.
Why am I telling you these things?  I am giving you an idea of who I am in relation to God- indeed, I am a believer and disciple of Lord Jesus Christ- the One God, Triune: Who is God the Father; God the Son~ Jesus; and God the Holy Spirit.  He is my Creator, and I am- as you are- His created one.

A Real Concern
My concern is the following: why do some people seem to think, even espouse, that they have the right to put themselves above Almighty God?  He is the Potter; we are His clay!  He is our Maker!  He has given us the right to be called children of God, sons and daughters of the Almighty!  And the LORD knew of each of us before the foundation of the world and all of its parts- which includes His plan of salvation in our LORD and Savior, He Who made us!  Christ Jesus. God knew and knows the purposes for each of us.  He knows our every thought, even before we think it- every part and parcel/particle of our being.  He gave us free will, so He does not and will never control us like automatons.  He wants our Love, Honor, Worship, an intimate relationship with Him- all of that and more that we willingly love and give.  He will not force the Truth that Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected- that wholly and holy sacrificial act of Christ at great cost to Him and done in complete Love and a desire that each one can accept Him and be with Him in Heaven some day!

How can any of us truly think that we have anything to do with our coming to this life on Earth? Did I have anything to do, any power or ability in being conceived, in my mother's womb where I grew to maturity to be born, and then was born?  Of course not.  Even my parents did not create my DNA, nor did they breathe life into me. Our Lord God knew me before I was in my mother's womb.  He knew of me before the foundations of the Earth, which He made.  He made everything!  We are completely dependent on God, and that is wonderful and right!

God is the Creator of ALL life in the universe, most including you and me, made in His image, the only creation He designated in His image!


Have you ever wondered~ 
why you are the way you are!?

Well...we are made by God- in His image- that is the most important factor~!!! Holiness of the Triune Three, Each had a part in making you, but Jesus is the One, Who is called our Creator. Do not let the evil one, (the devil, Beelzebub, Satan ...) work his plan of betrayal upon you against Jesus Christ!!! Jesus said, If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father! This Person (One of the Three of the One God) is Jesus, the Lord of lords and the King of kings- no other!!!  Do not believe in anyone else aside from Christ Jesus.

One of the Ten Commandments is: You shall have no others gods before me.

John 14:6 New American Standard Bible (NASB) Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

John 14:7-11 New King James Version (NKJV)


The Father Revealed


“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”

Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”

Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.
There are many factors, but they boil down to an essential few.  The most important factors in who you are~ are your heart, your mind, your soul and your spirit.  The LORD gave you each of these.  When or if you have accepted Christ Jesus into your heart and walk with Him is the most important fact.  
Ultimately everything pales to this one choice.  Yes, it is your choice. Praise God! You cannot blame anyone, hail or laud anyone, only you have the Choice for yourself- your eternity and where you will spend it- forever, always. No excuses.  You cannot blame your abundance or your lack of awareness and acceptance of God in Christ Jesus.  When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, then it is sealed forever, the Holy Spirit comes to indwell you to help, to give you knowledge and wisdom, his discernment, and strength.  Jesus walks beside you, and yet He stands at the right hand of God the Father on His throne; Jesus is interceding for you constantly.  You need to be Jesus' follower.  There are things we do not know about God, but the Holy Bible is key and so is being in fellowship with a welcoming, Jesus Christ-believing and Bible-believing church.  No fake and weird stuff, no added information or that so-in-so said this, no untruths  Just keep in step with Jesus : )

Breath of Life~~~In Christ, Be Alive in Me!






Sheer Beauty
Stretching
Your Hand out
 In Love,
Speaking~

To create the universe-
The land, sea, and air.
                             ~                               
Creatures of singular
Ability, shape, color, and size:
A tall giraffe wading through
A Sudanese river;
The beak of penguin
Nuzzling his baby
Under deeply fluffy
Stomach on feet.
                             ~                                
Shimmering horizons
Glowing,
Massive and deep mountains
Oceans of blue,
They-
All coming from You.
                                                           
   ~
A mother’s smile,
Holding babe the first, ecstatic moment.
                                ~                             ~
  Cavernous grandeur
In mighty waterfalls,
Seas,
Wandering whales, dancing
Breaking above the waves
As family.
~
Every fifteen minutes
Dolphins greeting and acknowledging one another,
Just because
They want to.
 ~
Herds
Moving as one
Across great expanses
Glorious fields of grain,
Growing hill-steps of beans,
Glistening, snow-packed mountains
With eagles rising way up high.
All,
Spoken by Jesus,
Savior and Lord of Life!
By dust we came,
Your most beloved,

By dust

We go.
 ~
In Christ,
We meet You daily and
In the bliss of Heaven

Abiding Love


 In God’s love for us


Through Jesus, His Son,

He showed us the beauty of
His creation
By taking away
ALL of the sin debt
Ever was, is, and would be,
So that
We
Can live forever
With Him,
Back Home
Has He ever taken away
All the beauty of the world?
Not ever.
The Ark
The Cross
Animal Kingdom
Weather
Herbs plants trees
Oceans and skies.
Most of all,
His pinnacle of Love,
Us!
 Word of Beauty~
Be alive in me!
