Dynamite= Powerfully Changed Life (Sunday Story Inspiration)

Ephesians 3:16
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;”

…I quickly changed into my after-school clothes so I could watch the men who were “dynamiting” the rock layer where an addition to our house would be built. They pre-drilled a layer of rock, loaded the holes with dynamite and then dragged a cable net over the site. Ignition caused an explosion that lifted the cable net off the ground.

Then the men dragged the net away and cleaned up the broken rock. Eventually the excavation beside our house was deep enough to pour a footer and concrete floor. The surrounding land was still the same, but the work area was completely different from how it use to be before.

In Similar:

In our verse above, Ephesians 3:16, the word “MIGHT” in the Greek is “DUNAMIS, it’s where we get our word “DYNAMITE.” The power of God and His Word is such that it has the same effects that dynamite had in the illustration above. It completely and powerfully changes us so that we are no longer the same person.

We have new desires, ambitions, motives, hopes and our goals line up more with God than that of the world’s following. Even people that knew you before will see that you are not the same person. 2 Corinthians states this: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

There is no ability in us to make change; not a permanent change. Oh we might can change a few things, but it won’t be consistent. When we try to change ourselves for the better we still end up doing the things we don’t want to do and then we get so depressed and stressed cause we fail trying to do things in our lives that only God can do; that’s how God designed us to be- total dependent on Him.

If you don’t like something in your life, ask God to come in and change it. He will. Thanks and praise to God that we can still in this late hour experience His “DYNAMITE” and be personally strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man. 🙂

Do You Have Troubles ? (Sunday Inspiration)

2 Corinthians 1:4
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”

The Word ‘trouble‘ is found over a hundred times in the King James (Original and most accurate translation in English) Bible, and the word “troubled” 68 times. We should not find that surprising…Job in Job 14:1 states, “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.” That may sound very negative but back then, it was a reality. Men of God in the Old Testament, such a Job, Joseph, King David and Daniel had many troubles. In the New Testament, Jesus was sometimes troubled and so were His disciples.

We see this especially in Paul’s voyage. Paul was on a stormy voyage that ended in a shipwreck. Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 2:9, “Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.”

Trouble can be in this world: afflictions (many times by our own hands), distresses (worries,stress,etc), disease (eating poorly,taking drugs,false beliefs),financial issues (poor decisions with money), loss of material items (stolen, weather related,etc), and mechanical breakdowns (man made cars,computers and machines). But how should we relate to these things? Obviously in a positive way: Jesus said, in John 14:1, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.”

Again in John 14:27 Jesus says, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Peter, one of Jesus’ disciples stated this in 1 Peter 5:7, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”

Instead of being troubled with the cares of this life lets sit at the feet of Jesus and focus on God rather than our trouble. Which ever one (troubles or God) we magnify the most in our life will dominate our future.

Know this, that God (if believed) will not only help us in trouble, but also help keep us out of trouble. 🙂

The Right Response (Sunday Inspiration)

Key verse today:Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” (James 4:10) (KJV)

During a revival meeting years ago, I looked over at a man who had been struggling with some serious failings in life. He obviously was experiencing strong conviction, becuase tears were rolling down his face. But when the invitation from the minister was given to come forward and repent and ask the Lord into the heart, he got up from his seat and walked out the back door.

While conviction and remorse are essential to genuine repentance, the right response to these emotions is also a big need. Quenching the Spirit of God as He speaks to us will harden our hearts towards God. The admonition to “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” (Galatians 5:16) this includes listening to God’s Spirit, even when the God tells us things we really don’t want to hear.

In times of great crisis, the Jews pleaded with Jeremiah (prophet) to pray, “That the LORD thy God may shew us the way wherein we may walk, and the thing that we may do.” (Jeremiah 42:3) But God’s answer was not what the Jews wanted to hear, and in their response to His prophet was “…Thou speakest falsely:…” (Jeremiah 43:2).

After Jesus was condemned to death by the Jews (John 19:15), Judas “repented himself“……….”Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood….” (Matthew 27:3-4). Yet Judas’ conviction and remorse resulted in his self destruction; Judas chose poorly.

God has given each person a conscience, and when fortified with knowledge of God’s Word (KJV only), the conscience not only convicts us of wrong but guides us in dealing with any wrongs. Let’s ensure that we never ignore that small still voice, either by disregarding it or by choosing an alternative (our own ways) solution that seems better or easier to the flesh (mind, opinions). 🙂

A Dreadful Superstition Grips America (LINK)

This link goes to a website that is certainly “controversial,” however, this article ‘hits the nail on the head.’ I recommend this article to everyone; it was certainly written with love and with other people in mind. Certainly all faiths and general public from all walks of life will benefit from this if we will apply it to our lives with serious endeavor. Ponder on it. It’s the change people may be looking for. 

“……………Ministers of religion, lawyers, architects, men renowned as brilliant scientists, physicians (particularly, physicians), University professors, middle class people, working class people, people of all nationalities, are its victims………What is this superstition? …………………Eat the truly good food, breathe good air, drink pure water, exercise, maintain optimistic and pleasant thoughts, and therefore enjoy fantastic health. Give our cells the proper nutrition and our immune systems will become as God gave us in the first place. Our immune system will then rebuild our body and we will enjoy the freedom of no illnesses…………..”

If You Fall (Story)

It’s Sunday…..so here is a story in “of the story..” style:

I recently read a story about a man needing to move some cattle he owned. He needed to move those cows to the opposite end of a pasture to let them start grazing on a new section of grassland. And, this meant that the cows had to cross a waterway. A few calves went first; leaping splashing, tails lifted up with excitement. The more mature ones went through the waterway at the shallow end, it was a well-used crossing…some with more drama and others with less; but they moved along making good headway…it was a show to see!

The last cow however, a skinny one, did fairly well until she got to the opposite side. As she began climbing the bank, she FELL. There she was, with her back feet in the water and her front feet on the slick slope. She made several valiant attempts to go up the slope but she was too weak. NOW WHAT?

Would that little calf slide back down into the water and drown? The owner of the cows thought to himself that there was no way he was strong enough that he could help that little Bessie keep her head out of the water until help could come; cow heads are heavy, especially when attached to a cow. So the cow and that man were both stuck. What a sight!

The moral OF THE STORY? If you’re a Christian, we do not practice sin. But if we stumble, God helps us back up.

Proverbs 24:16 says, “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again:….

Again, Psalm 37:24 states, “Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.

Because of God, we can say,“Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.” (Micah 7:8)

But for some, for all really, we need to make a certain “FALL,” and we must fall hard. We need to fall on Jesus! “And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken:…….” If we FALL on Him, and let our self-will be broken, we can be assured that He will lift us up to walk in newness of life.

Wondering about that skinny cow? She got out. She trusted the man and gave it her all, all the while, the man held up her head to keep her from drowning. It’s a true story by the way. 😉

2 Peter 1:10
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:………”

Have a great and peaceful Sunday. 🙂

Fire And Ice in the Same Week? (VIDEOS-ALERT)

If we leave Hollywood where it’s at, we can see the apocalypse in what I’d call, drips. Weather will forever dominate mankind in some of the most horrible ways. Nothing we can ever do or stop doing will change the scenes or future scenes that will continue on the earth.  We can pray,….. (Lk 21:36 ) and ask that we escape the things which are surely to come and most promisingly will get worse. Further? If we dismantled some weather mod tech weapons, yeah; we can stave off some issues and the land would heal. But that’s never in the prophetic future and certainly not in the case of California or Colorado as you will see in the vids below; ya know, Trent Moore stated, “The apocalypse can paint a big canvas, but it’s often the small stories about the end of the world that resonate the most.”

Thanks to DAHBOO777 for the vids! The following is why we pray.
