The Great Production

I decided a long time ago (not long enough ago), that I choose to live my life as if it were an epic movie. God is my director, my composer, my screen writer.
Most people seem to think hes like a omniscient being that just gets a ticket to watch our lives. They do not see him when everything is going well, but when the movie takes a turn and the emotion and pain begins to well up they seem to forget that the audience cannot just jump in and fix the situation because they knew what a stupid decision was being made sooner. No matter how much he wants to help, he cannot, because they have not made him director!

You can choose to let God watch your life, or you can choose to let him direct it. Things will be better, life will be sweeter. There will be love, hope, and beauty written into your life in ways that only movies can make look so sweet, with all the graphics, and music and special effects. You can allow your life to be lived to its fullest potential, and with such beauty, or you can choose for your life to have hopelessness, sorrow, and confusion without the promise of beauty and fullness of life. God doesn’t want to watch you fail, he yearns to show you how to succeed. Life is going to have ups and downs, pain and hurt, and unexpected loss. It is how you respond to those things that will make all the difference.

Matthew 11:29

Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

When God says move…

MOVE!!!!!

Psalm 18:3

You gave a wide place for my steps under me, and my feet did not slip.

I know I’ve been MIA for a while, and I must apologize, but God has opened some doors for me and my family. He hasn’t closed the door to the blogging world but I’ve been falling behind for sure!!!! Lets see, in the last 2 weeks I’ve picked up a new business, became a youth leader, and been dealing with many a dramatic and crazy family moment!

Revelation 3:8

“‘I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.

I’ve been trying to find a way to make money from home for ages, and I’ve passed by, or let opportunities pass ME by many times because they “weren’t for me”. Well this time, God said MOVE!!!! I started with the company originally, not to sell or make money, but to use the product to better my health. The results (within 2 days!!!) were immeasurable!!! So I knew right then, that I could help others by selling and giving it out to them! I prayed that God takes this business and multiplies it so that I can use the money I make and the product I earn to help others and be a blessing.

Malachi 3:10

Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.

Luke 6:38

Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

so I’ve been in said business for about 2 weeks and already I am soaring!!!! God is amazing, wonderful and faithful, and if you are obedient to him, he WILL give you your hearts desires.

Psalm 37:4

4 Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Forgiveness

I think this is a very commonly needed lesson to learn.

The Word Against The World

The hardest thing to give away, and the last thing on your mind today. It always goes to those who don’t deserve it….

That is one of my favorite songs. The music is beautiful and that guy has a voice like an angel…. but that is not why I love it so much…..

My entire life has been a rather difficult one. I’ve been abused, broken, used, passed around like I was nothing but a rag doll. My heart built up so many walls you would think I would be stone cold by now. My biggest struggle once I gave my heart to Jesus, was forgiveness.

I never heard an “I’m sorry” I never looked for one. My heart was pretty cold for a while there. I lived in hatred of the things that happened to me, and the people whose “fault” it was that I had to…

Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith.

The Word Against The World

doubt
noun
 1.
  1. a feeling of uncertainty or lack of conviction.

We are human, and we all have doubts. Doubts are normal, they pop up unexpectedly in our heads about everything, and everyone. I’m sure we have all doubted someone before who we would never doubt now, because that is just how things are in this world.

What do you do with these doubts? Do you push them aside? Or do you take them and run? What is the limit to your doubts?

Well in my heart, there has developed something beyond the understanding of many, and that is faith.

 

faith
noun
  1. 1.
    complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
    “this restores one’s faith in politicians”
  2. 2.
    strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.
Can you have doubts about God and your faith…

What is in a name?

Power! Have you noticed how offended people get when the name of God and of Jesus? People get angry. So angry, in fact, that they will actively seek to pull his name out of the country’s historical documentation, songs, and celebrations! Why is that? I’ve never seen anyone become so worked up or convicted as when the name of God is used. No other name has that power… I have never seen someone put up as much of a fight over the name of any other person or religious figure  in history than that of God or jesus.

There is power in that name., that is why. The name of God alone is enough to make people guilty, to induce discomfort, period, into the hearts of unbelievers. Their hearts are hardened though, because of their defiance. They still feel the holy spirits pull on them, but they fight it. I can’t tell you the number of extremely uncomfortable or awkward, even angry faves I have seen after throwing up a “God bless you” or a “praise jesus”!

I am afraid that the christians of this age are beginning to “tone down” displays of faith for fear of offending someone. Im afraid they have never taken to heart that jesus said “whoever denies me before men, I will also deny you before the father! (Matthew 10:33)”

We also need to remember that we are to be the salt of the earth

“Matthew 5:13 you are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.”

We are the LIGHT of the world “you are the light of the world. A city thay is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and puut it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.” Matthew 5:14

Does this make any sense? In other words, we are supposed to shine our faith and shine it brightly so that others may be led to God through our love, example, and by always wielding the power of his name and the holy scriptures we cherish. Do not hold back no matter what. One day we will stand before God and will give an account for our lives as christians. I don’t know about you, but I do, and you should want to give a glowing report of who you allowed God to help you become. I made a commitment on the day of my salvation to give him all of my life, to surrender myself and all I am. How can you surrender your life to him, and then HIDE IT FOR THE SAKE OF SAVING SOMEONES ANXIETY OVER THE NAME OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD!?
In his name have the sick been healed, the dead been raised, and those who were lost were found. What is it about someone hating the name of God that makes you want to hide it? It should make you want to shout it even louder. To pray for those who turn him away. You are doing them less of a favor by keeping quiet. In the name of God. In the name of christ, there is power to draw those who are scared, lost, and bitter back into his arms!

I plead with you all never to hold back. For his will is that not ONE SHALL PERISH (2 Peter 3:9).

My prayer for you all today is that you will never let that light go out, that you will always shine it bright for those around you who may just be looking for it! I pray you will never hold back out of fear, for with God you can accomplish all things. In Jesus’s mighty name I pray, amen.

Ps. Please bear with me today as I posted via mobile! Lol! Blessings to you all!

When Jesus comes back!!! Do we all just float on up?

There is a very very common theme among Christians I have noticed, and that is the belief that we are going to ascend to heaven as soon as the trumpets sound and Jesus, the messiah returns for his elect.

I want you guys to read this very well first, and then move on:

2 Peter 3:3-4

Knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.”

SO most of us know about the 144,000, the sealed from the 12 tribes of judea. They will be called up, as will those who are dead in christ.

1 Thesalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

Then revelation 7 describes a different group of people.

9 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice:

“Salvation belongs to our God,
who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb.”
11 All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying:

“Amen!
Praise and glory
and wisdom and thanks and honor
and power and strength
be to our God for ever and ever.
Amen!”

Someone asked who these folks were:

13 Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?”

14 I answered, “Sir, you know.”

And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.15 Therefore,

“they are before the throne of God
and serve him day and night in his temple;
and he who sits on the throne
will shelter them with his presence.
16 ‘Never again will they hunger;
never again will they thirst.
The sun will not beat down on them,’[a]
nor any scorching heat.
17 For the Lamb at the center of the throne
will be their shepherd;
‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’[b]
‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’[c]”

Interesting! If we are suppose to be raptured before the great tribulation, how could we be those who have come OUT of it?

THEN THE TRUMPETS IN REV. 8!!!!!!

The Trumpets

6 Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.

7 The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

8 The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, 9 a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

10 The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— 11 the name of the star is Wormwood.[a] A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.

12 The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.

13 As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair call out in a loud voice: “Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!”

9 The fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth. The star was given the key to the shaft of the Abyss. 2 When he opened the Abyss, smoke rose from it like the smoke from a gigantic furnace. The sun and sky were darkened by the smoke from the Abyss. 3 And out of the smoke locusts came down on the earth and were given power like that of scorpions of the earth. 4 They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 They were not allowed to kill them but only to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion when it strikes.6 During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.

7 The locusts looked like horses prepared for battle. On their heads they wore something like crowns of gold, and their faces resembled human faces. 8 Their hair was like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. 9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the thundering of many horses and chariots rushing into battle. 10 They had tails with stingers, like scorpions, and in their tails they had power to torment people for five months. 11 They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon and in Greek is Apollyon (that is, Destroyer).

12 The first woe is past; two other woes are yet to come.

13 The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the four horns of the golden altar that is before God. 14 It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.”15 And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. 16 The number of the mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand. I heard their number.

17 The horses and riders I saw in my vision looked like this: Their breastplates were fiery red, dark blue, and yellow as sulfur. The heads of the horses resembled the heads of lions, and out of their mouths came fire, smoke and sulfur. 18 A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire, smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths. 19 The power of the horses was in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails were like snakes, having heads with which they inflict injury.

20 The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk. 21 Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.

Pay CLOSE attention to what is marked in red. This is the great tribulation, yet those with the mark of God on their foreheads (which will be those with the blood of the lamb) are still here? 

Moving on…

Revelation 10

New International Version (NIV)

The Angel and the Little Scroll

10 Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars. 2 He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, 3 and he gave a loud shout like the roar of a lion. When he shouted, the voices of the seven thunders spoke. 4 And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven say, “Seal up what the seven thunders have said and do not write it down.”

5 Then the angel I had seen standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven. 6 And he swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in them, the earth and all that is in it, and the sea and all that is in it, and said, “There will be no more delay! 7 But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.”

8 Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me once more: “Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.”

9 So I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, “Take it and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but ‘in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey.’[a]” 10 I took the little scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it. It tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour. 11 Then I was told, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages and kings.”

This rings a bell!!!! Back in 1 Corinthians:

1 Corinthians 15:51-52

51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed—52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
This foretells when we will be changed in a flash. We must become the spotless bride of Christ.

2 Cor 5:2,4-5 (NIV)

Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling… For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened… to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

There is so much deception floating around. WHY? Because most choose to listen to what people think and say rather than read the bible itself. I URGE YOU to examine and read the scriptures daily with a renewed mind and a spirit led by the holy ghost. God will give you the truth if you seek it!!! Do not take my word for it, your friends or parents word for it, or even a mega church pastors word for it. In the end, we are all human. ONLY GOD HIMSELF can show us the truth. Also, please dont forget what it says at the end of the book of Revelation:

Revelation 22:18-19

I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

God is unchanging, as is his true scripture.

I tell you all these things because in the end days, as jesus stated in my first scripture quotes, there will be scoffers. There will be those who will laugh and taunt as we did not ascend with the sealed. Christians whose faith is hanging by a thread, those that believed in watered down gospels and had no real understanding of what God had in store, they will be lost. Jesus also said that there is to be a great falling away before the end.

1 Timothy 4:1 (KJV)

4 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils,

they will give themselves to seducing spirits (false doctrine!), and doctrines of devils. Wouldn’t it be a lot easier to give up your faith if you feel abandoned by the very ‘god’ you believed in the first place? I fear that those who fall prey to the watered down preaching of the bible will fall prey to this. I fear that many will believe the great deception that is not given quarter in the scriptures.

1 Thessalonians 5:21

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good;

My prayer for you all tonight is that you will examine all things carefully and you are led to the truth by God and the holy spirit. I pray that you will understand this and why I tell you this in such a way. I pray you will hold fast until the end so that you may be clothed in white and walk along side Jesus. I pray you will be given a peace that transcends all understanding during those trying times. In Jesus’s mighty name, amen.
