“…..The Door To Understanding All Of Human History” (LINK)

It’s Sunday, ran across this article; I liked it. Slightly lengthy, but if you’re not between phone calls, it’s well worth the read. Below is an excerpt:

“….We live in an age of declining faith. We also live in a world where rival beliefs systems like Islam are surpassing Christianity worldwide. There are many reasons for the situation we find ourselves in today. One primary reason is that we simply don’t take our faith seriously enough to teach it as history. We really don’t consider it worthy to build our lives around.  Even Christians consider history to be limited to events like the French and Indian Wars or the Civil War.

But if we start at the center of all history and if we are to teach Jesus Christ as the door to understanding all history, we have some work ahead of us.  We need a comprehensive and searchable history that relates all human history… that’s each and every event… to the center, to Christ.  This is obviously a big project, perhaps the largest project or undertaking in the history of mankind. It will make Wikipedia look like a speck, a footnote as a way of comparison. So…

If you’re ready to start writing … I’m looking for help.”

Ya know, it’s ok to say the name “Jesus Christ” We are not ashamed of His name! “Amen” or or “oh me” If you can’t say amen, say oh me.. I’ve seen and heard this name heal, raise the dead and cast our what appeared to be demonic possession (crazy person, epileptic). So, there is definite power in This name.

The Kingdom is Within YOU!

I’m changing things up today (don’t worry, I will still post awesome links and vids) after all, this began as “…of the story.” Stories with a meaning; and I have a story for you today- let’s not forget today is Sunday. A lot of people like to think about God today, (we should do it everyday) or we think about those who are thinking about God. Maybe we wonder if He is still involved in mankind’s workings. I can assure you He is. He’s working on you this very moment!

Back in Old Testament days, God dealt with man a little differently than He does today. There was a different covenant that He had with man, and in short; God was reaching out to man (2 Chron 16:9), and He still is. However, not all men (and women) were reaching out to Him. So, He sent His Son (Mt 21:37) in the likeness (literally human) of mankind. And from the time He came till well after He left (temporarily) He would now draw all men to Himself (Jn 12:32). We (many people) are what has been called, “God chasers.”

Ok, without further ado……..here’s that story. Thanks to James B. of Canada for the structuring

The Kingdom of God is Where?

There are several Scriptural proofs showing that the Kingdom of God is right here, right now! While there is the Kingdom of Heaven (where God also dwells) the Kingdom God (spiritually) spoken of, “is within us.” John the Baptist (Mt. 3:2) stated, “And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” That meant it was a nearly now (then) thing to occur shortly.

Jesus preached the same message (Mt. 4:17); and in the book of Acts; God’s Kingdom was a primary theme in the apostles’ preaching as well (Acts 28:23,31). Entrance into the Kingdom is by the new birth (a soul and spiritual change in the hearts of men, something we cannot do ourselves).

Salvation is freely offered by grace through faith in the accomplishments of Jesus on earth, and more importantly, the debt, our debt, that was stopping that spiritual change; that debt, Jesus paid for with His life (Eph. 2:8-9). On this foundation, this truth, all believers in Jesus now belong to this Kingdom.

In Luke 17:21, Jesus Said that the Kingdom of God “…is within you…” This clearly shows that the Kingdom of God is here and now. Not some kind of nirvana, or emotion we need feel or a place we must look for.

There are still lost people (unchanged hearts), and what’s worse is that the people who were once “aware” are now falling away (2 Thess. 2:3). That can be both good and bad news. In the good, it means that we are ever closer to the Lord returning. On the bad, people have become so Heavenly minded and religious that they are become no earthly good.

But if you can hear, maybe you can encourage a fallen man or woman of God and point him or her back to the truth. Remind them that God loves them and that you do too. That’s a powerful message; and it’s not complicated.

The Gospel (or good news) is that we are still in harvest time and reaping time. The lost are still out there. And, we still need to continue to expand the Kingdom.

We don’t need to overlook the literal, present aspects of this Kingdom, the one Jesus spoke about at the Sermon on the Mount. Let us be happy that we and many around us in our lives can be counted as sanctified and redeemed of the earth. We are subjects of a Glorious King (ONLY Jesus, I know of no other king), and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. *

Scriptures used from ONLY KJV:

Lk 17:21 “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

2 Chron 16:9 “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.”

Jn 12:32 “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.”

Mt 21:37 “But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.”

And to recap:

Rev 21:3 “And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”

 

Heaven’s Grocery Store (POEM)

“I was walking down life’s highway
a long time ago,
and I saw a sign that read:
Heaven’s Grocery Store

As I got a little closer,
the door came wide open,
and as I looked intently,
suddenly I was standing inside.

I saw angels,
they were standing everywhere.
One handed me a basket and said,
“My child shop with care.”

Everything a Christian needed.
was in that grocery store.
All you could carry that day;
and can return the next day for more.

First I got some PATIENCE,
and LOVE was in the same row.
Further down was UNDERSTANDING,
which you need everywhere you go.

I got a box or two of WISDOM,
a bag or two of FAITH.
And I didn’t want to miss out on
the HOLY SPIRIT; He was abundant in this place.

I stepped to get some STRENGTH and COURAGE,
to help me run the race.
By now my basket was getting full,
but I remembered I needed GRACE.

How could I forget SALVATION,
for salvation, well, that was free!
So I tried to get plenty of that,
there was enough to save both you and me.

Then I started up to the counter,
to pay my grocery bill.
I thought I had everything I needed
to do my Master’s will.

As I went up to the last aisle,
I saw PRAYER and grabbed some,
for I knew when I stepped outside,
I would run right into sin.

PEACE and JOY were plentiful,
they were on the last shelf.
SONG and PRAISE were standing near;
so I helped myself.

Then I said to the angel,
“How much do I owe?”
He smiled and said,
“Just take them everywhere you go.”

Again, I smiled at him and said,
“How much do I really owe?”
Again, he smiled and said,
“My child, JESUS PAID ALL THAT YOU OWE,
HE PAID YOUR BILL A LONG, LONG TIME AGO.”

Have you gone shopping lately?

The evil socialists of California; haven’t they heard “Don’t judge?” Looks like they want to do more than just judge. They want God’s Word banned from public. Makes you wonder why. Are they so scared or threatened??? Can’t stand up to the truth eh?

Sorry, Californians; you guys might want to get on board with the Lord! And as shakey and quakey Cali is, I’d be clinging to some more of a foundation than a liberals whim!! Leave God’s Word be! Now would maybe be a good time to re-locate eh? Having God mad at you, well…He’s bigger; it a terrible thing to come under the wrath of God.

The Trinity (LINK)

I should have posted this yesterday. Anyway, it’s technical, but a good and honest read that most don’t consider much any more or just outright deny. I hope you will give this some thought and may you begin your week with newfound but old foundational truths and perspectives. God bless you!

1 Jn 5:7 “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. ”

Jn 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

Gen 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. ”

Keep Believe God (Inspirational)

*Posted with Love………. 🙂 Have a great Sunday.

There may be days when you get up in the morning and things aren’t the way you had hoped they would be.

That’s when you have to tell yourself that things will get better. If God brought you to it, He’ll get you through it.

There are times when people disappoint you and let you down. But we are to bless others; it’s not all about you and me. Smile!

There are those are the times when you must remind yourself to trust your own God-given judgments and opinions, to keep your life focused on believing in what God has promised us- there’s strength in that.

There will be challenges to face and changes that will come in your life, and it is up to you to accept only good changes- and they will be good, so long as you stay close to God and believe for His divine leading; it’s not in your own ways to direct your own path.

Trust Jesus to keep you headed in the right direction. It may not be easy at times, but in those times of struggle you will find a strength in spending time in prayer alone with God.

So when the days come that are filled with frustration and unexpected responsibilities, remember to have faith in God; don’t waiver- take a walk, pray and enjoy the Lord’s presence.

Those challenges and changes will try you but they will help you find the path that you was meant for you. Listen for His voice and keep believing God!

 

Elvis Has Left The Building

Well, I believe it’s time for me to leave. I hope I’ve inspired you to “carry on,” There are a lot of wise directions and opportunities to follow a better path, to follow the Lord Jesus. Our society has gone down so badly, it’s almost unrecognizable in many ways. I need to follow the ways the Lord would have me to go. It’s going to get worse for so many people; and if it’s one reason I am here, it’s cause of people. We need to love each other, and point our neighbors in the right direction, that is if they will hear you. People’s hearing is clogged, but I do pray that this page will remain. I believe it will bless you. Thanks to those who’ve liked this page/posts. I wish I could have talked to many of you for more times than I did, but ya know, we just do what we do, and then move on. That’s what I need to do…..but, who knows, maybe I will pop in with something worth reading and sharing, so I leave it up to you as to your subscription. Hope you’ll hang in there. But if I don’t come back here; may God keep you and you keep Him, abide in the Vine. Stay safe- Keep the faith. -Moraldiplomat

take care everyone. Enjoyed it. Much love in these times!
