A Collection of Thoughts
What Is God's WIll?
Words That I Pray Will Encourage and Bless
Christianity is, and has always been, and always will be, not just essentially a body of believers, but it is a body of believers in Jesus the risen Christ and the eternal hope we have in Him. Christianity is about a loving relationship with the creator of the universe and our service to Him, our Abba Father. - Steve
Pride is a trap that the strong, the righteous and the wise can fall into ..... if you don't trust in the Lords strength, the Lords righteousness and the Lords wisdom.
"For Believers this (world) is as bad as it's going to get, for unbelievers this (world) is as good as it's going to get." - Tim LaHaye
The time has come when we see churches entertaining the goats when they should be feeding the sheep. We live in perilous times and we need to feed on the spiritual nourishment of the word of Almighty God ... and not a form of godliness. Blessings.
God did not promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, nor sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way. Source: Mary Stewart (my FB friend)
God has done such a miraculous thing for us. He has taken poor, blind, dirty orphans with no hopes or expectations and made them co-heirs with His own Son. He has made us the owners of the universe and granted us immortality. And He dances with joy whenever we accept His gift. All He expects in return is our loyalty and gratitude. Is it so much to ask?
The word of Almighty God ..... History proclaims its past. Headlines proclaims its present. Prophecy proclaims its future. The living word of truth, past present and future. Blessings
The word of Almighty God provides us with all the spiritual nourishment that we need to thrive in this worldly environment. Blessings
The real test of faith is in facing the silence when God places you on "hold".
He bequeaths us his manger, from which to learn how God came down to man; and his Cross to teach us how man may go up to God.
As we walk our lives in time ... we write our future in eternity. Not by how good or bad we are, but by who's footsteps we followed. Jesus is the way ... Blessings
Costly grace is the treasure hidden in the field; for the sake of it a man will gladly go and sell all that he has. It is the pearl of great price to buy which the merchant will sell all his goods. It is the kingly rule of Christ, for whose sake a man will pluck out the eye which causes him to stumble; it is the call of Jesus Christ at which the disciple leaves his nets and follow...s him. Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the gift which must be asked for, the door at which a man must knock. Such grace is costly because it calls us to follow, and it is grace because it calls us to follow Jesus Christ. It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life. - Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-45)
There are only two races of people on this planet. Those racing towards heaven and those racing towards hell. When we look at these two people groups with an eternal focus we can also say ... "the intelligent and the stupid". Blessings Steve.
When you feel overwhelmed by the flood that comes against you in the world ... you will always find a place of refuge, a place of security, a place of hope, a place of love, a place of peace when you share your burdens with Almighty God. You can trust that no matter what happens in your life, it will work together for your good according to the perfect plans of our loving Father. He knows your tomorrows better than you know your yesterdays. Give Him thanks in all situations. Blessings
The work of Jesus the Christ on the cross "is finished" ..... It is a completed work, once and for all time. We now, by the grace of Almighty God and faith, participate in walking as the body of Christ and in His promises. What an awesome position we have in Jesus the Christ, in this end times generation. Blessings.
The only thing you can take to heaven with you is your friends and loved ones ..... well, those that are saved !!! Blessings
We have such a Friend at the right hand of God; all power is given to him. He is there, making intercession. Believe on Him who justifies the ungodly, Jesus the Christ.
What an amazing gift, to be able to make choices in life ..... we make them every day. Choices determine direction and events in our lives and even the lives of others. The choices we make effect EVERY part of our lives. Making your choices, led by the Holy Spirit of Almighty God will result in His will for your life in time ..... and will build into your eternity. Have an eternal focus as you live your life in time. Blessings, Steve
Time Past has been spent, whether for profit or loss. Your remaining time can shape the wealth or poverty of your eternity, in your thoughts, words and deeds. You can not redeem time past ... spend your future time wisely with an eternal focus. Blessings.
Created to walk with Almighty God in one of the greatest times in the history of mankind. Sharing the word of truth in these darkening times will not only shape your eternity but it will give others hope in Jesus the Christ. The only way ... Blessings
If any of you do not know my Lord and, therefore, do not look for His appearing, remember that He will come whether you look for Him or not. Heavens door will close and planet earth will know what tribulation is. Make your choice now ..... eternity is a long time. Blessings
People may debate politics, sports and theology, but there comes a time to heed Christ's call to action. The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. You where called to serve in this amazing end times generation. You have been chosen and empowered for this hour. Yours is a high calling that will have eternal results. Know who you are in Jesus the Christ and overcome as you walk by faith and in His strength ..... Blessings
We live in amazing times. A day when the prophetic word written thousands of years ago, pierced the boundries of time to foretell the events that are unfolding before our very eyes. We are greatly blessed to be living and serving Almighty God in this end times gereration. Blessings ..... Steve
You where Almighty God's choice to live in one of the greatest generations in the history of mankind. You have a high calling on your life. While we know that satan will do all to redirect our focus and purpose in this day ..... we can be sure that we are perfected in our trials. Stand on the promises that are yours in Christ Jesus. We walk by faith..... Steve.
We as children of the most high Lord God, should shine the way in these dark days for the lost and young in Christ. We can share Christ by the way we walk with Him. We have the Way, the Truth and the Life in us. We must reach out to those in darkness. We must lead them and we must carry them if necessary. Because Jesus the Christ has carried us ... and will continue to carry us through time and in all of eternity, if we let Him, if we walk in His ways and His will. Hold the Light high ..... that it may penetrate the darkness in this end times generation. Blessings.
We enter the sea of deception when we don't stand on our convictions. Live life and speak without fear out of the convictions that are born in you as a child of the most high Lord God. Your high calling seperates you from this world's standards. Blessings.
We don't know when the end of the world is. "But maybe the end of your world is closer than you think." We never know when we will take our last breath or be raptured and step into eternity, ..... "Are you ready to meet Almighty God ?" Blessings.
You have a choice in whom you will follow in life and be with in eternity ..... show wisdom because eternity is a long time to be wrong. Blessings.
To know the will of God is the greatest knowledge! To do the will of God is the greatest achievement. - Truett, George W.
There's no pit so deep, that it is beyond the reach of our Abba Father's love for us. Reach out to Him today .....
Your Eternity Is Shaped In Time
The will of God will never take you where the grace of God will not protect you. You are greatly blessed and highly favored. You are a child of the most high Lord God, creator of the universe. Blessings
You will never be able to speak against evil if you are entertained by it .....
We, that know the living God, have an urgent requirement to understand the times we live in. The prophetic world of Almighty God tells us we live in perilous times. A time of great deception. Remember who you are in Christ and your assignment from heaven. Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. Reflect the light of truth in these dakening days and walk the path that not only leads you to eternal joy and happiness but others that see the hope, Jesus the Christ, in you. - Blessings
Tears will either stain your cheeks or drown your soul... tears of pain, tears of sorrow, tears of grief, tears of joy, tears of relief. In this life of tears, let them flow and cleanse your soul. - Alison Bowden
No one can ride the coat-tails of someone else's relationship with Christ. We each have to have our own relationship with Him and learn His voice for ourselves. We can disciple each other, direct each other, check each other and pray for each other but we cannot walk for each other. - Alison Bowden
"Tears shed for self are tears of weakness, but tears shed for others are a sign of strength." Billy Graham
In Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge of the universe. The door to salvation for eternity is Jesus the Christ. Blessings.
Almighty God used Paul to touch the world not only in his day, but ?.. in every church age generation. He used Ananias to touch and speak into Paul?s life. You may speak a word into someone?s life, who will touch the world in this end time generation. The mouth of a righteous man / woman is a well of life. The words that we speak are Spirit and Life. We have power in our tongue to speak to situations and into lives. Lets use it for the Glory of Almighty God. Blessings.
The grace of Almighty God changes us. It changes our future in eternity. Grace gives us a changed life. Grace gives us the ability (in Christ) to be pleasing to Almighty God. We can look back in time and look at the grace of the cross as someting we can accept. Paul says that we are not to receive the grace of God in vain ..... Holy God, give us a hunger to walk in your will, in your grace every day. Blessings.
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. In the end, only the good seed planted in good ground remains. There, the good seed springs forth, grows strong over time and sends its roots deep into the soil of your supple heart. Your good ground with deep, rich, fertile soil provides the right seed bed from which a fruitful harvest is born. Blessings.
Simply put, Grace can be defined as Almighty God's unmerited favor. Grace is the power of Almighty God, to do for us what we cannot do for ourselves and in fact, we cannot do anything for ourselves. Jesus says, "...without me ye can do nothing." John 15:5. The grace of Christ can accomplish for us that which all our efforts will fail to do ... Holy Abba Father, thank you for your all sufficient grace. Blessings.
When we come to the understanding that we fail in our own strength ..... we can draw great comfort in knowing that we can step inside the ability of Jesus the Christ ..... in whom we can do All things. Blessings.
TO STAND THE TEST OF TIME:- (context, idiom) To remain useful or valued over a long period of time; to last a long time.
To remain useful to Almighty God's will, we need to stand the test of time. It is how we finish that is important, in time ..... and in eternity. Finish strong in His will, remain faithfull and stand the test of time. Blessings
Abba Father ..... thank you for being such an awesome heavenly Father. Words are Inadequate to Describe your protection, your provision, your councelling, your friendship ..... your deep love and eternal plan, that I may be called your child. Happy Fathers Day Abba........
During those "dark times" in your spiritual life, you may not be able to see Almighty God's love, His faithfulness, His grace, or His promises to you. BUT, don't lose your faith. Be certain in what you don't see. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Release you faith without doubt and expect to move the mountains in your life. Blessings.
You have immense worth because you are made in the image of Almighty God. Your worth to Almighty God has placed you in one of the greatest generations in the history of mankind. You where hand picked for this day ..... your position in Christ exposes, restrains, retards and paralizes the dark works of evil. Your light shines the path of hope to the lost in these days. Blessings.
As saints living in the end times, we are on assignment from Almighty God. Our calling will always come against some form of opposition. Our assignment will bring us against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world ..... we will come against the power of evil. BUT our power and authority in Christ will paralyze the influence of the ungodly that comes against us. Blessings.
Living He loved us, Dying He saved us, Burried He carried our sins far away, Rising He justified freely forever, One day He's coming - O glorious day..... Our Savior Jesus did it all. By the grace of our Abba Father, freely we receive. O glorious days, walking in His will. Blessings.
Faith without works is dead..... Almighty God is just as ready to forgive the blotted pages of our endeavors in life ..... than the blank page of giving up! Blessings.
Almighty God loves us just the way we are, but we are not to remain the same, conformed to this world. As caterpillars are transformed and become butterflies ..... We, as children of the most high Lord God are to be transformed into the likeness of Jesus the Christ, that we may serve the will of Almighty God. Blessings.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Faith is currency that we spend / release into the spiritual realm that has purchase in the natural realm that we live in. Faith from the word of Almighty God has no fear, no confusion or no doubt ...... but total trust that our Abba Father has all in hand. Walking in the faith we receive from Almighty God will give you His peace. Blessings.
Isaiah wrote that the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die in like manner. But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail ....... How true that is for us today. Our Salvation is eternal and our righteousness in Christ is assured. However, some in this generation will not taste death. Praise Almighty God. Blessings.
As our hearts desire to walk in His will is amplified by our willingingness to follow the leading of the holy spirit of Almighty God, ..... the doors of our destiny that have been closed by reluctance, will be open wide, so that you will reach your full potential and purpose as a saint living in this end times generation. You where chosen by Almighty God for this day, to be a living testimony. Blessings.
Is there anything Almighty God can not do. The answer is "YES". Our heavenly Father can not "Lie". Every word and promise in the bible is 'truth".
To those that don't know about God, heaven or hell ......it's all real.
So I want you to read "God's Plan of Salvation". Blessings.
Following Jesus the Christ as your Lord and Savior is not just a matter of believing. He gave of Himself and we have to give of ourselves also. Being a Christ follower is a position of belonging. That is, belonging to Christ, and belonging to the body of Christ. There is no greater honor or position in life ... or eternity. Blessings.
Larkin once wrote ... Feeling is the "FRUIT", not the "ROOT" of Salvation, (Gal. 5:22, 1 Pet. 1:8). The Bible nowhere says we are to trust in our "feelings" for salvation but in the PROMISES" of God. It does not say he . that "FEELETH" shall be saved, but he that "BELIEVETH."
Including the promise of salvation there is 1260 promises in the bible. Blessings.
Almighty God uses Christians that are willing to serve Him ..... no- matter how limited or insignificant we think we are. In Christ we can literally build into eternity. We may never know this side of eternity what impact our words and deeds have on not only our lives but the lives of others. A word of encouragement, prayer, giving, witnessing ..... the simplest thinks we do can effect eternity. Blessings.
There are 8,674 different Hebrew words in the Bible, 5,624 different Greek words, and 12,143 different English words in the King James Version. Almighty God's Word is "perfect", complete, all-sufficient; it is sure, right, pure, clean and true. It is the wisdom of our Abba Father. It is the living, eternal, life giving word of Almighty God. Thats powerful ...... Blessings.
Fear and Faith cannot coexist .....we walk by Faith and not by sight. The grace of Almighty God within us will employ prayer, faith, hope, love, power and authority to cast out the evil and fear that comes against us. Fear not ..... fear fails. Faith released, is exercising your spiritual sight. Fear will cause spiritual blindness. Walk in faith and His will every day. Blessings.
As saints living at the end of the church age ..... we live in a world that has a standard far from that of Almighty God. Drugs, Abortion, Homosexuality, Murder, theft and greed are common place. The standard we live, the light we shine, the words of truth and life we speak, is what will draw others from the ways of the world to the ways of our Abba Father. Blessings.
The life that Jesus the Christ lived qualitied Him for the death that He died.
The death that He died qualified you to receive the life that He lived. Now think about that the next time you think you can't do something. You can do ALL things through Christ ....... Blessings.
The only thing we take into eternity, from this dimention of time that we live in, is our standing with Almighty God. The relationship we build with our Abba Father here in time.....will last an eternity. Blessings.
