Ebola Spreading Exponentially


The Ebola outbreak is spreading exponentially, and it has the likelihood to travel outside West Africa.  The United States and some European nations are sending military resources to combat the outbreak.  There is also a respiratory ailment sickening a lot of children in the United States.  There is talk that the large number of immigrants from South America which came through the American border had ailments and diseases that went unchecked.  The American government is not stating where these people are located.  The world is heading down a very dangerous road.   

The fourth seal speaks of disease and death.  We are not there yet for other events must happen first.  However, we see events that are building to that moment in time.  The governments of the world will control their population more as events like this happen.  Governments love to take a crisis and use it for their own benefit.  God told us governments are like beasts, and the worse of them all will be the government of the last days.   

It can get scary seeing all the pain and suffering in the world.  Sin entered into this world through Adam, and it was paid for with the life of the Second Adam, Jesus Christ.  If you put your trust in the Second Adam, then the affects of the First Adam will have no affect on you throughout eternity.  Even now, God’s Spirit has renewed you from the inside, and soon you will experience the full redemption on that day that creation will be in awe (Romans chapter 8).

20,000 earthquakes in one month


In this past week alone there has been several major earthquakes along the Pacific Ring of Fire, with earthquakes rumbling to life.  Can you imagine a time when the earth will begin to literally tear itself apart?  Perhaps not, but prophecy warns of just that during the latter half of the Tribulation.

People will flee to caves in the rocks and to holes in the ground from the fearful presence of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth. Isaiah 2:19 NIV

Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. Revelation 16:18 & 20 NIV

20,000 earthquakes in one month
Tuesday marks one month since a record wave of seismic activity started at and around the volcano of Bardarbunga. At least 20,000 earthquakes struck the area in that period, according to estimates from the Icelandic Met Office. 186 earthquakes of magnitude 3.0-3.9 were detected. 43 quakes were of magnitude 4.0-4.9, most of them at Bardarbunga's caldera. A total of 23 earthquakes were detected of magnitude 5.0 or greater, all at Bardarbunga. The largest earthquake, a magnitude 5.7, struck on 26 August. That's the largest earthquake in Iceland since a M6.3 struck east of Reykjavík in 2008.
Three scenarios of future development are still considered most likely. Firstly, that the subsidence of Bardarbunga's caldera will stop and the Holuhraun eruption slowly fades out.
Secondly, the subsidence could continue, along with the eruption in Holuhraun. Another eruption could start, possibly under glacier. In this scenario, the eruption(s) could last for a longer time, with lava volume possibly measured in cubic kilometres. Should a subglacial eruption occur, explosive action and glacial floods should be expected.
The third scenario is an eruption within the Bardarbunga caldera. Scientists say such an eruption could melt large volumes of ice, causing a powerful glacial flood. Another possibility is that the water would not immediately escape the caldera, because of the volcano's previous subsidence. That meltwater would later produce a large flood. When the eruption would reach through the glacial ice above, explosive eruption with ashfall would be expected.

Fukushima, Japan Rocked By Two Earthquakes in One Hour; Epicenter Near Nuclear Plants
A pair of moderate earthquakes struck just off the coast of Japan's Fukushima Prefecture Wednesday, close to the nuclear power plants crippled by the March 2011 tsunami. There were no early reports of damage, injuries, or new problems at the nuclear plants. The Japan Meteorological Agency says the first earthquake struck at 9:45 p.m. JST (8:45 a.m. EDT in the U.S.) and registered a magnitude of 5.0. The second quake, a slightly stronger magnitude-5.2 tremor, struck 46 minutes later. Both were centered just off the coast of Fukushima Prefecture, where the Fukushima Daiichi and Fukushimi Daini reactors were severely damaged in the March 11, 2011 tsunami that followed a magnitude-9.0 quake farther offshore. The damage spawned the worst crisis at a nuclear power plant since the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, and prompted Japan to shut down most of its nuclear power plants.

CDC Predicts As Many As 1.4 Million Ebola Cases by Early 2015

There seems to be no end to the Ebola pandemic in West Africa.  The horrible events now playing out in nations such as Liberia and Sierra Leone are but a glimpse of what will transpire during the darkest days of the coming Tribulation.

Ebola is not the only disease in the news these days as pestilence outbreaks are occurring across North and Central America as well as the Caribbean.

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven. Luke 21:11 NIV

CDC Predicts As Many As 1.4 Million Ebola Cases by Early 2015
A new and particularly grim CDC projection estimates that Ebola cases in western Africa could easily breach the million mark in just four months. The agency warned that without an effective intervention or a slowdown in the transmission of the virus, the world's biggest outbreak on record could extend from 550,000 to as many as 1.4 million cases by January 20. 

The Pure Hell At The Heart Of The Ebola Pandemic In Africa Could Soon Be Coming To America
Did you know that the number of Ebola cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone is approximately doubling every 20 days?  People are dropping dead in the streets, large numbers of bodies are being dumped into the rivers, and gravediggers can hardly keep up with the the number of corpses that are being delivered to the cemeteries.  As you read this, life is pure hell in many areas of West Africa, and now the CDC is warning that things may get far, far worse in the very near future.  According to the CDC, the number of Ebola cases could potentially soar to 1.4 million by the end of January.  Of course the CDC says that this is a "worst-case scenario", but for our health officials to even suggest that such a huge number is possible is quite chilling.  We are now being told that the fatality rate for this Ebola outbreak has risen to 71 percent, and so most of the "cases" will eventually turn into deaths.  If we do eventually see 1.4 million cases of Ebola in West Africa, it is incredibly naive to think that it will not spread to other parts of the globe as well.

Governments Building Ebola Detention Camps to Quarantine the Infected: “Community Care Centers”
Many now believe that it is only a matter of time before cases of Ebola are detected in other parts of the world. And if what’s happening in Africa is any guide, then we can expect a widespread, heavily militarized response by officials in the West, especially in the United States. In Sierra Leone the military is doing house-to-house searches looking for anyone who may be infected with Ebola or showing similar symptoms. A similar plan is being put into place in Liberia, where the World Health Organization is rapidly establishing “Community Care Centers,” where those infected with the disease will be detained and quarantined:

Topic :   13 years

it's been 13 years since that tragic day  13 years ago when life was changed forever. i had gone into work the previous night at 11pm. i was working as a security officer at some hotel a few miles from the las Vegas strip. the night had started out routinely, i had complete a few patrol rounds, tracked down an extra pillow or two. it was going to typical Tuesday night. Then around 1:30 the trouble began we were going to have an in coming group of distress passengers, the original number was ten. they were connecting with a flight to Chicago, but Chicago had started diverting flights  because of weather. so the shuttle driver took off for the airport and about ten minutes or so later he came across the two way radio 
how many people are supposed to be here?
ten, maybe 11 replied the night manager. 
I immediately had a feeling something was wrong 
the shuttle driver came back i have close to fifty people down here.
the night manager told the driver to stand by
a few minutes i heard the manager tell the driver load  as many as he could  and i would bring a second shuttle so off  i went. I firgure each of us would have to make two trips. i arrived a few minutes later and a rough count but the number of passengers at over a hundred. 
we are going to need the third shuttle. come again came the night manager. 
again i said we are going to need the third shuttle 
how many people are there? 
rough estimate i replied about one hundred, maybe 125
silence 
okay i am bringing the third shuttle came the reply from the night manager. 
so until about 4:45 that morning all three  shuttles ran, i stopped once for fuel and coffee. the shuttle driver had left at 3am he had put in 13 hours and had decided that was enough. so the bar tender and the night manager had driven the other shuttle. we brought in over 200 passengers. not only was there the original issue out of Chicago. a freak wind storm in Arizona shut down the Phoenix airport and a stalled  airline on some runway in saint Paul had caused more headaches. around 5am i swung through the airport, not seeing anyone i went back to the hotel. right as i pulled in there where people waiting to go back. so the next hour and half that is what i did. after my seventh trip i had stopped  for coffee at some gas station. i headed back to the hotel expecting more people waiting to taken back. only there wasn't. thinking the storm had passed i went inside the hotel to make a final round. the bar area,hotel lobby, breakfast area was packed. everyone was staring at the television, no one was speaking a few people appeared to be upset about something. some morning news show anchor was speaking, plane, tower,  fire, tower hit plane, plane malfunction, crash land....
then there was an image of the first tower, oh a plane had malfunctioned crashing into the tower then the second plane struck. people screamed,a few started to cry,there where choice words.
i made the statement that wasn't an accident 
several people stopped and looked at me
i repeated what i said with that airline was intentionally flown into that building. several people snicker, what did some rent a cop know? then the story about the Pentagon broke, some explosion or such.
i refilled my cup and headed for the airport, no one was flying any where. i brought back those i had dropped off, those at least who hadn't caught flights. early in the morning there had been only a few police officers and airport employees. By the time i got back  there were dozens  and dozens  of police officers. i drove till a little after 9 am. the day shift had two drivers plus others who could drive. 
when i got home about an hour or so later i walked in the front door to find the wife staring at the television, one of the towers came down. we sat and watched the news till around 2pm, i doze off. when i woke later the wife told the second tower came down, the explosion at the Pentagon was a third airline  and a fourth hijack airliner had crashed and all flights were cancelled.
may we never forget that day

 Years ago, a colleague told me he was watching TV and heard a bang outside. He went to investigate and found his 8 yo son had just slide down a small hill in the backyard on his sled and had gone smack into the house. He was sitting on the ground laughing like an idiot and he wanted to do it again!.

Re :   stopping by to say hello

Spending Saturday at home with the kid's. Didn't need the car for anything today and to save the hassle of loading and unloading the kids the wife drove herself to work. Okay so what's new? Next month begins the holiday/ birthday season. Zechariah birthday is in September, we are going to do a Thomas and friends party for him. Thinking about getting him a tablet for watching videos but also for learning shapes and colors. He's gotten really good at colors, Isabana has gotten good with letters. Starting in October and probably through the start of next year we will have family visiting. The plan was to go New Orleans for Christmas we were going to either fly or drive down(not the first choice) but unfortunately several others had taken Christmas off. I work grave shift so the start of Christmas day the kid's, wife and whoever else is here will be a sleep. When i leave that night to go back, like last year and the year before the kids and wife will be out cold.can't believe it's been almost two years since we started the adoption adventure. Watching them grow has been an emotional rollercoaster there are days its taking every bit og self control not to strangle one or both of them especially on days when they go on the warpath, they will start screaming, fighting, clibing,thrown things just being pint size terrorist. Then their watching curious George wondering what is wrong with me. I had said by fifty five- sixty i woud have a head full of grey and white hair. I know it will happen by fifty each day more grey and white hair appears. I don't know how true it is that stress and worry cause grey hair,but i am of the mind set it does. My daughter does stuff sometimes i think to help me get more grey hair. About a month ago we were in the bedroom i was doing something and she was bouncing on the bed, just a minute before she had gotten a swat on the bottom for jumping on the bed, i turned to pick something up and as i came back up, she bounced and flew off the bed towards this bookcase/ hutch time slowed down she began to rotate in mid year(mind you she's smiling as this is happening) i start moving to break her fall but suddenly gravity has increased a million times i got an arm up, planted a foot and prepare to dive.time kicked back in and she collided with the furniture piece back first then slid down and bumped her head. My heart and world froze i had this vision of a dead daughter lying on the floor. But praise the lord she was fine, in fact more then fine less then a minute after i checked her she scrambled back on to the bed ran towards the edge of the bed, bounced, and flew towards the furniture piece giggling as she did. Okay its time for lunch

Re :   stopping by to say hello

 That few people that use Church of Hope's boards have asked for it to remain. As long as it serves somebody, I see no reason to take it down.

For the tension headaches, you might want to look into a product called Sunbreeze. You can probably find it on E-bay. A bit pricey, but a container lasts a long time. Might just help the headaches...

Re :   stopping by to say hello

Okay talk about a ghost town of a site. Almost two months of no activity. I would ask where everyone has gone, but I know the answer Facebook, MySpace, mocospace, other social sites. I will not be the least bit surprised to come to this or one of the other comefellowme site and find they have been shut down. I am surprise that this site, the comefellowme sites and the church of hope sites are still around. Doesn't seem that these Christian sites last long. For the Intouch site up and close, within a year I believe it was the lighthouse site, closed, next was the hope4christian site, last year the two loaves, five fishes closed up. At least when I went to check it a few times it wasn't there. Then again it had been a long time since anyone had posted there in a while, reminds me I haven't been to the shoutlife site in months. Okay let's see today is Friday which means it is Monday. Okay my day started with laundry, a nap, more laundry. I had a neurology appointment this morning that went well. I am probably going for another MRI sometime this year, maybe next. While the migaranes seem to be under control, the tension headaches are still a problem, that and I get sick at work on a regular basis so their going to do another MRI as a precaution. I kept different over the counter medication, drink sierra mist to help clam my stomach on bad nights. I have also learn to leave the room as much as possible even if it's just to move into a different room of the surveillance department,  we actually have six different rooms within the surveillance department. Okay what else? The kids and I went grocery shopping today, we did McDonald's for lunch, today was bath day and now I am off to make dinner tonight is tuna sandwich night, last night we did pizza. Tomorrow we are doing spaghetti for dinner. Well I must be off, I will return again, eventually

Re :   stopping by to say hello

 okay i figured that almost two close to three months of no activity was a bit long. i am at home with the kids tonight. normally Sunday is my rest day, i get to sleep because durning the week  i average between 2_4  hours a sleep a day if i am lucky. depending upon traffic and the route i take from work to home can take about fourty minutes. if i am lucky when i walk in the door the kids and wife will still be asleep. my first two priorities when coming through the door actually first three are to check on everyone. second i put cellphones and tablets on the chargers. last i  put  my wallet,keys, glasses, the wife`s purse on the book case by the door.
After all that is done i find a place to lay down. at night we put our daughter  in her crib,Zechariah in his bed,leaving our bed for  the wife. However on most nights there is a game of musical beds. the kids go from their crib and bed to our bed or a couch in the living room and the wife ends up in Zechariah bed. our daughter has this habit of taking over the adult bed. her perfct spot seems to be dead center of the bed, at an angle. we have learned that when she finds the right spot and goes to sleep let her be.
today i was planning on just relaxing and  not doing anything, but bed sheets needed to be washed along with some work jeans needed to be washed. i also put off yesterday dishes  i think i was doing laundry and i think we ran an errand or something.
well its 8:15pm las Vegas time.i have got beds to make up, laundry to dry, other  items to fold and put away, a pair of kids to change into pjs and a wife to pick up at 9pm.
until next time, God bless.

Re :   stopping by to say hello

I know one thing that would have made the trip home with an rv or conversion van would have been the space. We could have packed and more room. Coming home every single square inch was filled, even on the driver side there was a bag, the kids were surrounded by pillows, blank, toys and stuff animals. Isabana slept, but Zechariah, oh man he didn't care for the ride. Now that we have them portable DVD player, him and Isabana don't mind care rides.  Give their juice and snacks, start up Elmo and we are roaring to go. Our next big road trip looks like we might go to California for a few days, we also might be going to Florida and no we are not driving

Re :   stopping by to say hello

an rv would have been nice for our roadtrip last year. we could have actually driven from Atlanta to new Orleans in about four or five hours, instead of 12 hours. we would have probably stopped once in Texas to spend the night, instead of spending almost three days of traveling across it. we would have probably taken the i-40 back instead of the I-10. we took the i-10 because there were toranado and storms along the 40. but with an rv we could have pulled over, taken alternative routes but kept on driving. it would have been nice but one draw back there really isnt a place to attach car seats. i thought a conversion van would have been nice,not as room as an rv but when diaper changes came up we could have done it without pulling over.

Re :   stopping by to say hello

What really gets rough are marathon days. I will get off nearly 30  and there will be things that need to be handled, things on the other side of town. So instead of going home I will drive over stopping somewhere for coffee and wait for the place I have to go to open, if they open at 9am that's fine, its the places that open at 10 am-11am that are a hassle. I Just make do because it doesn't make sense to drive the nearly 20 miles from work to home than another 5, 10 or whatever somewhere else. Another hassle is hauling the kids around, it's been nice having our the mother-in-law visit.  But she can't handle them all the time. So I end up taking them with me on errands, I try to range the errands in a circle pattern starting with the oneb that is going to consume the most time and is furthered away and ending with the one closest to home. There are days I drop the wife off from work and spend the day going here and there with the kids, a few times we have never made it home. We keep diaper bags in the car with multiple changes of clothes, snacks. We also the video system for them to watch. A few times we have gotten overwhelmed with errands we have lost track of time. We were out once going here and there and my wife ask me the time, it was 4 or 5pm we had been out since 12pm. We had one or two things to do, so off we go we grab the kids a burger or nuggets and head to our next stop, one thing led to another and another. We stop somewhere to change the kids and my wife ask me the time I look at my watch 9:50 pm,  I start work at 11pm, so we sing through McDonalds grab a late dinner and we fly home. The kids are unloaded I start up the Keurig stick in a kcup to brew and hit the shower by 10:34 I am rushing out the door and arriving with five minutes to spare

Re :   stopping by to say hello

No, we havIs different days off and we work differeand schedules. My wife works swing and I work grave. We take turns in the morning on the nights I work the wife will handle breakfast and changing diapers. However I have come home in the morning and found both kid's up, so I will handle breakfast and morning duties. On our weekends to let the other sleep and rest, we will handle morning duties. The afternoons I handle the kids, only on my wife's off days do we both watch them in the afternoon. Breakfast is served bewteen 8-9:30 on the weekdays, usually around noon the kids have a snack, we than take the wife to work. We come home the kids play and about 2-3 pm we have lunch, the kids get another snack around 4:30, dinner is usually 6-7pm, sometimes later, I try to have them feed no later than 7:30. By 8pm We are changing into night clothes, at 8:45 we are going to get the wife. By 9:30 we are home. Bewteen 9:30 and 10 pm I am making coffee, gathering my messenger bag making sure my medication, phone charger and other various items I take are in there. By 10 pm I getting showered, change and by 10:25 I am leaving for work. Usually around 10 pm the wife puts the kids to bed, there are days we put them to bed at 10 and at 1am they are still up. The other day they took a nap bewteen 5:30 and 6:30, got up had dinner, got changed, we went and got the wife came back home and by 9:45 they were both asleep. Since November my mother n law has been with us originally she came for thanksgiving, but then it was decided that Christmas would be celebrated here. My mother-in-law has been working on clearing out a storage unit, apparently when my father n law retired, they were supposed to downsize, she went through their apartment and label stuff that was supposed to go goodwill and stuff that was supposed to be thrown away or taken to a place that shreds documents. Everything else was supposed to come to las vegas. Unfortunately he brought everything, so she has been going over and eliminating the storage unit box by box, old coffee pot by old coffee pot. She is set to return to New Orleans next Month.

Re :   stopping by to say hello

Sitting at home having coffee with the kid's, well I am having coffee,  their having breakfast  sausage,  waffles,  milk and juice. Today is my Friday we are closing in on the court hearing date to finalize our adoption of our daughter, it will be nice to get it over with. This week or next we are supposed to start looking at Daycare for Zechariah. We f irgure it would be good for him to start socializing with other kids. 
Okay what else is going on? One of my wife's uncles is celebrating a birthday this week we are supposed to be having a get together at local pub-eatery, thev place has banquet rooms, from what I understand most of the local las Vegas family will be there. From what I understand quite a few people will be coming to town for the adoption hearing, 

Work has been okay,  we had some slight and major technical problems last week, slight in our equipment wasn't to badly effected, but major enough where one employee lost their job and others were in jeopardy of losing theirs, our running joke is we are one power surge from the un employment line. Well that's about it for now, I have to go find clothes for the kids to wear, one of my task this week will be go through and box up clothes the kids have out grown. A co worker is having a child in June or July so I am keeping a few boxes of clothes set aside for them, I always said when if I had a child I would never put them in hand me downs. I would only have them wearing new clothes,  if you're rich and don't mind shopping a lot  that's all fine and dandy, but if you're a working class stiff like me, then new clothes constantly isn't an option, besides I have found I have gone to the store numerous times looking for something either for Zechariah or Isabana and I have found every size but the one I need. Isabana is already wearing 18 month size clothing, well I am off

Have a blessed and wonderful day

Re :   'CORRIE TEN BOOM AND THE RAPTURE'

I know there are three different view points on the rapture and when the church will be caught up, pre, middle and post tribulation. while it would be nice if the rapture took place before the world went mad, I don't see it happening that way, I think as Christians we will be needed here on earth to continue with the message of salvation. I think as the end days progress and get worse a lot of people are going to start waking up and realizing something is not right, that they are not getting all the facts. I think the coming tribulation will be the deciding factor for a lot of people where they stand with God or the world. I personally have never given much thought to the rapture, I know it will happen eventually. I think the attitude of every Christian to accept it's coming but not spend our time looking to the sky 'waiting to beamed up".  I think the church should continue on with it's mission

Re :   Hello

Normally about this time I am laying down somewhere hoping to get in a nap for an hour or two before the morning actives start.  Which include feedings, diaper changes, outfit changes and putting on Sesame Street for the kids to watch.  After that I am usually starting a load of laundry, which now matter how much I do another pile appears.  Then there are sippy cups to be tracked down, and put throw the dishwasher with other items.  Toys are gathered up and returned to the play zone, eventually though they make their way into the kitchen, hallways and bathrooms.

I have this site and all the other associated sites book marked on my phone. For the last few months I have occasionally taken a look to see what activity is going on and pretty much all the sites seem like they have all but abandon.  I kept telling myself today I will post a message, but something would come up and after that another something and so on. Before I knew it , it’s lunch or supper time, diaper changes or something else and before long the day was drawn to a close as I headed out the door to work.

I figured a few months of little or no activities were too much. So here we go.

The holiday’s season is finally over, I am so happy; I have come to hate the holidays, thanksgiving and Christmas especially. Once upon time long ago I enjoyed them. Now they become a logistical nightmare, there are parties and other social events to attend or plan for, there are gift shopping, there is running about here and there.  We had family from back east come and stay with us, this past Christmas was the first year my wife her parents and both her sisters have spent Christmas together in almost 10 years. The only one who was not present was my brother n law but we were able to Skype with him.  This year my wife and I will be celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary.  The plan is to rent a vacation home for about a week in Florida. My wife has sister who has been in prison for almost 12 years; a wild and reckless streak landed her on the wrong side of the law. A rumor is she might be released this year. The goal is to rent a house near or close by the beach.  The wife has family in the D.C/Maryland and New Orleans areas all which are in driven distances, hopefully all her family can get together.

This isn’t as long as I was intended to write, but I am starting to have trouble focusing and the computer screen is starting to put a strain on my eyes.  So that’s it for now, I have more to write about and will be back (eventually) until then God bless and take care.

'CORRIE TEN BOOM AND THE RAPTURE'
- (Written in 1974)

"The world is deathly ill.  It is dying.  The Great Physician has already signed the death certificate.  Yet there is still a great work for Christians to do.  They are to be streams of living water, channels of mercy to those who are still in the world.  It is possible for them to do this because they are overcomers.
Christians are ambassadors for Christ.  They are representatives from Heaven to this dying world.  And because of our presence here, things will change.

My sister, Betsy, and I were in the Nazi concentration camp at Ravensbruck because we committed the crime of loving Jews.  Seven hundred of us from Holland, France, Russia, Poland and Belgium were herded into a room built for two hundred.  As far as I knew, Betsy and I were the only two representatives of Heaven in that room.

We may have been the Lord's only representatives in that place of hatred, yet because of our presence there, things changed.  Jesus said, "In the world you shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."  We too, are to be overcomers – bringing the light of Jesus into a world filled with darkness and hate.

Sometimes I get frightened as I read the Bible, and as I look in this world and see all of the tribulation and persecution promised by the Bible coming true.  Now I can tell you, though, if you too are afraid, that I have just read the last pages.  I can now come to shouting "Hallelujah! Hallelujah!" for I have found where it is written that Jesus said,

"He that overcometh shall inherit all things: 
and I will be His God,
and he shall be My son."
This is the future and hope of this world. Not that the world will survive – but that we shall be overcomers in the midst of a dying world.
Betsy and I, in the concentration camp, prayed that God would heal Betsy who was so weak and sick.
"Yes, the Lord will heal me,", Betsy said with confidence.
She died the next day and I could not understand it. They laid her thin body on the concrete floor along with all the other corpses of the women who died that day.

It was hard for me to understand, to believe that God had a purpose for all that.  Yet because of Betsy's death, today I am traveling all over the world telling people about Jesus.

There are some among us teaching there will be no tribulation, that the Christians will be able to escape all this. These are the false teachers that Jesus was warning us to expect in the latter days.  Most of them have little knowledge of what is already going on across the world. I have been in countries where the saints are already suffering terrible persecution.

In China, the Christians were told, "Don't worry, before the tribulation comes you will be translated – raptured." Then came a terrible persecution.  Millions of Christians were tortured to death. Later I heard a Bishop from China say, sadly,


"We have failed.
We should have made the people strong for persecution,
rather than telling them Jesus would come first.
Tell the people how to be strong in times of persecution,
how to stand when the tribulation comes,
– to stand and not faint."
I feel I have a divine mandate to go and tell the people of this world that it is possible to be strong in the Lord Jesus Christ. We are in training for the tribulation, but more than sixty percent of the Body of Christ across the world has already entered into the tribulation. There is no way to escape it.
We are next.
Since I have already gone through prison for Jesus' sake, and since I met the Bishop in China, now every time I read a good Bible text I think, "Hey, I can use that in the time of tribulation."  Then I write it down and learn it by heart.

When I was in the concentration camp, a camp where only twenty percent of the women came out alive, we tried to cheer each other up by saying, "Nothing could be any worse than today." But we would find the next day was even worse.  During this time a Bible verse that I had committed to memory gave me great hope and joy.

"If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye;
for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you;
on their part evil is spoken of,
but on your part He is glorified."
(I Peter 3:14)
I found myself saying, "Hallelujah!
Because I am suffering, Jesus is glorified!"
In America, the churches sing, "Let the congregation escape tribulation", but in China and Africa the tribulation has already arrived. This last year alone more than two hundred thousand Christians were martyred in Africa. Now things like that never get into the newspapers because they cause bad political relations. But I know. I have been there. We need to think about that when we sit down in our nice houses with our nice clothes to eat our steak dinners. Many, many members of the Body of Christ are being tortured to death at this very moment, yet we continue right on as though we are all going to escape the tribulation.

Several years ago I was in Africa in a nation where a new government had come into power. The first night I was there some of the Christians were commanded to come to the police station to register. When they arrived they were arrested and that same night they were executed. The next day the same thing happened with other Christians. The third day it was the same. All the Christians in the district were being systematically murdered.

The fourth day  I was to speak in a little church. The people came, but they were filled with fear and tension. All during the service they were looking at each other, their eyes asking, "Will this one I am sitting beside be the next one killed? Will I be the next one?"

The room was hot and stuffy with insects that came through the screenless windows and swirled around the naked bulbs over the bare wooden benches. I told them a story out of my childhood.

"When I was a little girl, " I said, "I went to my father and said,
"Daddy, I am afraid that I will never be strong enough to be a martyr for Jesus Christ."
"Tell me," said Father,
"When you take a train trip to Amsterdam,
when do I give you the money for the ticket?
Three weeks before?"

"No, Daddy, you give me the money for the ticket just before we get on the train."

"That is right," my father said, "and so it is with God's strength.
Our Father in Heaven knows when you will need the strength to be a martyr for Jesus Christ.
He will supply all you need – just in time…"

My African friends were nodding and smiling.
Suddenly a spirit of joy descended upon that church and the people began singing,

" In the sweet, by and by,
we shall meet on that beautiful shore."
Later that week, half the congregation of that church was executed.
I heard later that the other half was killed some months ago.
But I must tell you something. I was so happy that the Lord used me to encourage these people, for unlike many of their leaders, I had the word of God. I had been to the Bible and discovered that Jesus said He had not only overcome the world, but to all those who remained faithful to the end, He would give a crown of life.

How can we get ready for the persecution?

First we need to feed on the Word of God, digest it, make it a part of our being. This will mean disciplined Bible study each day as we not only memorize long passages of scripture, but put the principles to work in our lives.

Next we need to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Not just the Jesus of yesterday, the Jesus of History,
but the life-changing Jesus of today who is still alive
and sitting at the right hand of God.

We must be filled with the Holy Spirit. This is no optional command of the Bible, it is absolutely necessary. Those earthly disciples could never have stood up under the persecution of the Jews and Romans had they not waited for Pentecost. Each of us needs our own personal Pentecost, the baptism of the Holy Spirit. We will never be able to stand in the tribulation without it.

In the coming persecution we must be ready to help each other and encourage each other.
But we must not wait until the tribulation comes before starting.
The fruit of the Spirit should be the dominant force of every Christian's life.

Many are fearful of the coming tribulation, they want to run. I, too, am a little bit afraid when I think that after all my eighty years, including the horrible Nazi concentration camp, that I might have to go through the tribulation also.
But then I read the Bible and I am glad.

When I am weak, then I shall be strong, the Bible says. Betsy and I were prisoners for the Lord, we were so weak, but we got power because the Holy Spirit was on us. That mighty inner strengthening of the Holy Spirit helped us through. No, you will not be strong in yourself when the tribulation comes. Rather, you will be strong in the power of Him who will not forsake you. For seventy-six years I have known the Lord Jesus and not once has He ever left me, or let me down.

"Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him", (Job 13:15)
for I know that to all who overcome,
He shall give the crown of life.
Hallelujah!"

Topic :   Why Did Christ Die?-by Henry Morris, Ph.D.

Days of Praise

"For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures." (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

This passage is often considered the defining passage of the gospel, stating the great truth that Christ died for our sins, then was buried (thus stressing that His resurrection was a physical resurrection, not just spiritual), and then rose again. As such, it is interesting that verse 1 which introduces it ("I declare unto you the gospel") contains the central mention of the more than 100 times the Greek word for "gospel" occurs in the New Testament.

However, it does not say why Christ died for our sins. It was not just to pay for our salvation and make us happy. There are, in fact, numerous references to His substitutionary death which do give us further insight into just why Christ died for us and our salvation.

For example, "he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again" (2 Corinthians 5:15). And consider Galatians 1:4, in which Paul tells us that Christ "gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world."

Peter's testimony and explanation was that the Lord Jesus "his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness" (1 Peter 2:24). John said: "|God| loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another" (1 John 4:10-11).

There are many other verses to the same affect. Christ did not die merely to save our souls, but to empower us to live in a way that would glorify God right here on Earth. HMM

...I LOVE JESUS! OH THAT I MIGHT LOVE HIM MORE....

"Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 

For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 

He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 

 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken."

Re :   I Wonder...

the problem is the church is trying to be acceptable by world standards, we as Christians have caved into political correctness, we are afraid to stand for what is right, what we know to be true. If we are true to Christian teachings and hold fast to our values then we as Christians are going to have conflict with the world, our lord warned us of this, I say if the world wants to be mad and hate us fine, for me personally it would be normal I seem to always have someone upset with me for one reason or another

I Wonder...
As fireworks sound off in the distance and July 4, 2013 winds to a close, I wonder…

How have we strayed so far from what the founding fathers intended?

We have gone from scripture reading and prayer in schools to banning all that is holy or has any form of godliness in our public buildings, school rooms, graduation ceremonies and military? We have exchanged a commitment to hard work and success into hand outs, welfare and government assistance for millions?

We fight to legalize late term abortion, pass laws supporting homosexuality and stand with pride in our nation as we sing “God Bless America.” We sit in silence as our churches morph into carbon copies of the world then stand to sing “My Jesus I love Thee.”

 
"...the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.... Professing to be wise, they became fools.... Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves.... Romans 1

“Repent therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord...." Acts 3:19
 

Will Americans repent and turn from there wicked ways, crying out to God for forgiveness of their sins, pleading with Him to cleanse and restore, deliver and heal? Or will it be business as usual for the masses as the wrath of God is poured out against the ungodly wickedness in the hearts of the citizens of this once great nation?

I shudder to think.!!.

Re :   In The Midst of The Storm

I was listening to Charles Swindol this morning while at work. He was speaking of hardships we face in life and how our natural response is too figure out to resolve the crisis on our own, or 9 times out ten, turn and run. Both are unwise moves on our parts. The wisest thing we can do when storms and hardships roll into our lives is stand and face the wind and rain, or the hardship head on. it won't be a pleasant experience but in the long run we will come out better as person, and be one step closer to becoming what God  intends for us to be.

Topic :   Things of the World-by Henry Morris

Days of Praise

"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world." (1 John 2:15)

We must be wary of the world's "things," because we are "in the world," not "of the world" (John 17:11-16). The command in our text is that we are not to love the world or its things, not that we should remain blissfully ignorant of them. We are to be "wise as serpents, and harmless as doves" (Matthew 10:16).

There are big things of the world like nations and kingdoms (Matthew 4:8; Luke 12:30), as well as cares and riches (Mark 4:19), that can sap our focus and drain our loyalties. And there are "rudiments" and "elements" (Colossians 2:20; Galatians 4:3) that can twist our thinking and "spoil" us (Colossians 2:8).

We are warned that friendship with the worldly lifestyle and that which espouses the "things" of the world makes us an "enemy of God" (James 4:4). That is because such people embrace the "spirit of the world" and not "the spirit which is of God" (1 Corinthians 2:12). Those people speak about the things of the world, and the world listens to them (1 John 4:5).

God's people may be "base" and "weak"—even "foolish" in the eyes of the world (1 Corinthians 1:27-28). Since the great Creator God has chosen us out of the world (John 15:19), it should not surprise us that the world "hates" those who belong to the Lord Jesus (John 17:14). Hence, the ungodly passions that drive the ungodly behavior of the world, "the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world" (1 John 2:16).

Those passions and the people who embrace them will "pass away." But "he that doeth the will of God abideth forever" (1 John 2:17). HMM

Topic :   God Is Always A Good father

I would like to take this opportunity to wish God a happy Father’s day. I have never wished Him a happy Father’s day before and think it’s appropriate to do so. Why not. What a great Father He is. He is the greatest father of all. He exemplifies what it is to be good father. He is kind, compassionate, and loving. He always has an ear for His children. He always responds with wisdom to our requests. He knows when we need a stern rebuke and He knows when we need a loving embrace. When we hurt, He heals. When we are sad. He cheers us up. When we are lonely, He sits real close. When we are happy, He rejoices with us. He found us in great trouble; He rescued us. He encourages us when we feel challenged. He defends us against our enemies. He tenderly consoles us when our hearts break. He let’s us learn our own lessons without interfering. He waits patiently on the porches of Heaven, longing for our return when we go to a far country of sin. He is always ready to take us back. After He forgives, He forgets. He has prepared eternity for us. He has held back nothing. He is a great friend, greater than a brother. He promises to clothe us, feed us, and shelter us. He knows where we are all the time, because His GPS is the best. He creates good things and will destroy all evil. He is strong and brave. We can rely on Him. All that He has, He shares. God is a good Father.

God Is Always A Good father

Some may say that a good Father would not let His Son die a horrible death. Don’t forget that the Father and the Son are one. God shed His blood and died VOLUNTARILY for anyone who wants forgiveness. He gave His life for a ransom. We were kidnapped by sin and He sacrificed Himself to rescue us. He is a good Father.

The truth is that he will quite the storms or he will quite us. The truth is that love cost him everything and it will cost us. The truth is that he will never leave us or forsake us. The truth is that he is love. The truth is that there is nothing that can separate us from his great love that is in Christ Jesus. The truth is that he works in all situations for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose. Loves not easy but it's good.

" I Anticipate Your Dependence Upon Me".



My child, give Me your heart, for out of it issues life. My hand is upon you, and I will keep you in all places wherever you go. I am your God, and I am your Father, and I will care for you and provide for you according to all that you need. I will be at your side, ready to help you whenever you call on Me. I am not unmindful of your needs, and My concern is for you.

You do not need to carry your own load, for I will be happy to help you carry it and to bear you up as well. You do not walk alone or meet any situation alone, for I am with you, and I will give you wisdom and strength, and My blessing shall be yours. Keep your heart set on Me and your affections on things above; for I cannot bless you unless you ask Me. And I cannot answer if you do not call. I cannot minister to you unless you come to Me.

Do not wait to feel worthy, for no one is worthy of My blessings. My grace bypasses your shortcomings, and I give to My children because they ask of Me and because I love them. I do not love one more than another. I give most liberally to those who ask the most of Me, for I love to have you depend on Me. This is why the Spirit within you cries, “Abba—Father.” As your Father, I anticipate your dependence on Me. You may mature and outgrow your dependence on your human parents, but as My child, you will never “outgrow” your spiritual sonship, nor will I ever cast you out to rely on your own resources, not even when you become a parent. Indeed, then you will more fully appreciate My feelings toward you. You will then understand the love a father has for his child, and experience the desire to care for and provide; then you will know more fully how much I love you, how ready I am to help you, and how available I am to counsel with you and give you My support.

Heaven's resources are at your command, and you need never want, so long as I am your Shepherd. Do not think that since I know all about you, you need not bother to tell Me. It is true that I know, but you need to tell Me so that in the telling, you may experience the release of an open heart, and the fellowship of a Friend.

As you open your heart to Me, I will come to you. As you speak to Me, I will speak to you. As you reveal yourself to Me, I will reveal Myself to you. This is a law of life. There must be action to bring reaction. There must be a question to bring an answer. There must be an expression of love and confidence on the part of one person to arouse a corresponding response in another person.

Never presume My presence. Never assume that knowing your need, I will automatically supply Ask, and it shall be given. Call upon Me, and I will answer you. Tell Me that you love Me, and I will make your heart know in a very real way My love for you and My near­ness, and you shall never feel alone.

Welcome Me into your heart, and the more you sense My presence within you, the more you will feel at home no matter where you may be. Forget anything else, but never forget this.

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ
lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh
I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me
and gave Himself for me.

Topic :   Rainbow Mickey’ souvenirs come out for Gay Days

Mickey the merchandiser has gone loud and proud, in a subtle sort of way.

 


Walt Disney World will be the gathering spot for thousands of gays, their friends and families this weekend, as the 23rd annual Gay Day takes place Saturday at the Magic Kingdom. Now a weeklong event, Gay Days began in 1991 as a single day on which the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community was encouraged to “Wear Red and Be Seen” while visiting the world’s most-popular theme park.

Though Walt Disney World has always maintained a neutral stance on the annual event, neither endorsing nor discouraging it, the merchandising machine that is Disney isn’t passing up an opportunity to put out a few crowd-pleasing souvenirs.

Earlier this week, Disney began to sprinkle merchandise throughout its parks with designs including rainbows, symbol of the gay-pride movement. Red tank tops with rainbow-colored Mickey Mouse heads began arriving in shops along Main Street USA a few days ago. They were paired in store displays with other rainbow items usually found in the parks year-round, such as rainbow pins and antenna toppers.

A rainbow mug can be had for $12.95; a rainbow wallet for $14.95. Mickey Mouse Vinylmations in rainbow — $12.95 apiece — were also prominently displayed.

“We offer a wide range of merchandise items that appeal to guests of diverse backgrounds,” said Walt Disney World spokeswoman Bernadette Davis.

Disney has sold such products in years past. This year’s merchandise, which makes no mention of Gay Days, was being snapped up Thursday by people in town for the event.

Chuck Stickler, who visits Disney about every six months from San Antonio, picked up a rainbow Mickey T-shirt, which went with a rainbow Mickey pin he bought years ago.

“I look good in red. Everybody says it,” he quipped, adding later: “I’m happy to see some Gay Days merchandise — well, it’s not really Gay Days merchandise, but rainbow Mickey merchandise.”

Gay Days’ organizers say they expect 170,000 people to participate in some aspect of this year’s event, which started Tuesday evening and runs through Sunday. In addition to visiting Disney World, participants have a range of planned events from which to choose across the tourism district and the rest of the Orlando area, including a Taste of Gay Days restaurant exposition, a charity auction, pool parties and other social gatherings.

Gay Days, which is based in Orlando, expanded its reach to the Western half of the country last fall with the introduction of Gay Days Las Vegas. And that inaugural event created extra buzz for Gay Days Orlando, organizer Chris Alexander-Manley said.

“Actually, we have a lot of people here that were at Gay Days Las Vegas last year. And that was the first time they had attended one of our events,” he said.

Marcus Blake and David Mendelson, who said they regularly attend Gay Days, bought red rainbow T-shirts as they toured Disney’s Animal Kingdom as part of Gay Days’ Thursday agenda. It’s not often they see such rainbow merchandise in the giant resort’s stores, they said.

“We kind of think it’s funny that Disney doesn’t sponsor Gay Days, but they cater to us. We were here just a couple weeks ago — and they didn’t have that shirt. But they put it out for this weekend,” said Blake, who’s from Tampa.

Blake has watched Gay Days grow since his first visit in the late 1990s. One positive development, he said, is that the event has lost a lot of its shock value.

“The first couple of years that I came, those who were not participating in the Gay Days festivities were kind of shocked to see the large number of red shirts and what it represented,” he said. “[Now] we have friends who come here with their kids, specifically, to show them about tolerance.”

Topic :   In The Midst of The Storm

In The Midst of The Storm

“But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid” (Matthew 14:24-27).

The disciples were so swamped, so suddenly overwhelmed, the very thought that Jesus was nearby watching over them was absurd. One probably said, "This is the work of Satan. The devil is out to kill us because of all those miracles we've had a part in." Another said, "Where did we go wrong? Which one of us has sin in his life? God is mad at somebody on this boat!" Another could have asked, "Why us? We're doing what He said to do. We're obedient. Why this storm all of a sudden?”

And in the darkest hour, "Jesus went unto them." How difficult it must have been for Jesus to wait on the edge of the storm, loving them so much, feeling every pain they felt, wanting so much to keep them from getting hurt, yearning after them as a father for his children in trouble. Yet, He knew they could never fully know or trust Him until the full fury of the storm was upon them. He would reveal Himself only when they had reached the limit of their faith. The boat would not have gone down, but their fear would have drowned them more quickly than the waves beating on the ship. The fear of drowning was from despair—not water!

"And when the disciples saw Him . . . they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit [ghost]" (Matthew 14:26).

They did not recognize Jesus in that storm. They saw a ghost—an apparition. The thought of Jesus being so near, so much a part of what they were going through, did not even enter their minds.

The danger we all face is not being able to see Jesus in our troubles. Instead, we see ghosts. In that very peak moment of fear, when the night is the blackest, the storm is the angriest, the winds are the loudest, and the hopelessness so overwhelming, Jesus always draws near to us to reveal Himself as the Lord of the flood—the Savior in storms.

"The Lord sitteth upon the flood; yea, the Lord sitteth King for ever" (Psalm 29:10).

Topic :   The Best of the Best

The Best of the Best

A few weeks ago we had a Prophetic Blast class at our church, one of the activation exercises required us to write down what God’s thoughts were about someone without knowing who it was. We were all built up, cheered up or stirred up. This morning my husband had me read the word that was given to him. It went like this “you make Him smile; to Him you are the best of the best.” I was immediately overwhelmed with the thought of Father speaking that to one of His children. As I reflected on that, I saw myself; my life hid in Christ, enveloped by His life, encased by Him, “the best of the best.” What an overwhelming sense of wholeness I felt, the reality of inclusion and all its implications flying through my thought life, renewing my mind to truth, to the true reality of who I am and who He is to me. Protection, provision, and then the greatest of all; fellowship! 1 John 1:3 “truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.” I have fellowship with my Father, and with His Son. I am no longer living separate from Him; I have received forgiveness of sin, and have regained (righteous) right standing before Him, that truth has become light to me, no longer living in the realm of separation from Him. I am hidden in the Son. All things are made new in Him, by Him and through Him.

Can you digest that? Can you receive that into your spirit and your soul today as truth? When Father looks at us He see our lives hid in His Son. The life you and I live we now live by the Son, who loved us and gave Himself for us, “the best of the best.” Because of that substitutionary life and our faith in it, you and I have been born anew, born again, remade, recreated, a new creature, a new creation. We have been baptized into His death that we might live in newness of life. The old you and me is passed away, behold a new you and me lives, created after the image of Him who created us. We have been bought back to His original intent, fellowship with the Father and with the Son. “And these things we write unto you that your joy might be full,” I John 1:4. So today, let’s enjoy being that new creation, dearly loved of God. Let us live as one that has continuous fellowship, in communication and intimacy with the Father and with the Son. “These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.” John 15:11 Thank you, Jesus, we say yes and Amen.

Topic :   You Have Found Favor

You Have Found Favor

The King loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti. Esther 2:17

Esther was called out, singled out, separated from the rest of the King’s Harem, while that’s a good allegory for the King coming into the world and taking special delight in us individually, once we are in the body, the called out, separated from the world, heirs of God, harem, He no longer prefers one above the other. We all have obtained grace and are highly favored. The King does not delight in me more than He delights in you; He loves and desires us both equally with the same intense passion. He looks out into His harem (His body) and delights in each one us, each possessing our own individual kind of beauty. He anticipates with great excitement spending time alone with each of us, equally. Giving us His undivided attention; allowing us to bask in the full force of His incredible love.

Because there is no favoritism with the King and He shows no partiality, there is complete joy in the King’s new harem. There is no vying for attention, each delighting for the other as they enjoy the outcome of having spent time alone with the King. They all rejoice for they know and have experienced the intensity of His love and are fully content in their position, even favoring one another.

The King has invited you into the most intimate of all relationships, you are His Queen. When with the King, the gaze of His eyes is stayed directly on you and you alone, it’s as though no one else exists. He has become your all in all; He is your King, your conquering hero, your savior, your provider, your loving husband, your faithful friend. Because He is the King, and you are His Queen you are also royalty, you have immediate access to Him, and all of His Kingdom, you share in His Kingdom. He has dressed you according to your position, you wear the Royal robes, and the royal crown is on your head.

You are loved by the King oh most favored one, so hold your head up high, see yourself as He sees you, He has made you worthy of your attire, so wear your royal robe and crown with honor and dignity. You have found favor with the King.

Topic :   Therefore do not worry...

Anxiety is a joy killer.
It’s what the enemy uses to try to get
all of us off track and put our minds
on useless temporary things.

But Jesus told us not to worry:

Matthew 6:34
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.


God has a purpose and a plan for our lives. Our adversary is doing everything he can for us to put our eyes on the storm just as Peter looked at the storm and started to sink. If we take our eyes off of the Lord and start to focus on our circumstances, we will get distracted and waste the time that God has given us to accomplish His will through our lives. Scripture tells us:

Psalm 90:12
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

If our days are spent worrying- we’re throwing away the time that the Lord has given us to fulfill His purpose through us. He has a purpose for us.
Do you believe that? Well you should- because He tells us that in Scripture!

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

You weren’t created to live far from the Lord. You need Him to do everything in life. It is through the faith in Him that He will accomplish all of His goals through you.
He will use you as a parent, as a daughter or son, as a friend. He will use you! Focus on Him and His will.
As Charles Stanley always says:
Obey God and leave the consequences up to Him.

Matthew 6:33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Far Right groups such as the Golden Dawn threaten violence and unrest against further immigration.

It points to the path in which the continent is headed – the European birthrate is at a continuous standstill while Muslim immigrants are doubling their rates. "If they wanted to integrate within the society, as European leaders had hoped, this wouldn't be an issue," said Keidar. "But since they want to keep their identities and change Europe, it is obviously a big issue. Every year more Muslims than non-Muslims are born in France.Japanhas no Muslims because they don't allow them in. Racism? Maybe. Superiority? Maybe. They don't care. They want to sustain Japan and are looking down on everyone."

Germanywarns of ‘revolution’ as youth unemployment threatens to tear Europe apart
German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble warned on Tuesday that failure to win the battle against youth unemployment could tear Europe apart, while abandoning the continent’s welfare model in favour of tougher U.S. standards would cause “revolution”. Germany, along with France and Italy, backed urgent action to rescue a generation of young Europeans who fear they will not find jobs, with youth unemployment in the EU standing at nearly one in four, more than twice the adult rate.
“We need to be more successful in our fight against youth unemployment, otherwise we will lose the battle for Europe’s unity,” Schaeuble said. While Germanyinsists on the importance of budget consolidation, Schaeuble spoke of the need to preserve Europe’s welfare model. If U.S. welfare standards were introduced in Europe, “we would have revolution, not tomorrow, but on the very same day,”Schaeuble told a conference in Paris.

2Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
(3:2-5) For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away

? The Gospel "The Gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. The essence of faith is being satisfied with all that God is for us in Jesus” - John Piper
