In the same way I was with Moses, I'll be with you. I won't give up on you; I won't leave you. Strength! Courage! You are going to lead this people to inherit the land that I promised to give their ancestors. Give it everything you have, heart and soul. Make sure you carry out The Revelation that Moses commanded you, every bit of it. Don't get off track, either left or right, so as to make sure you get to where you're going. And don't for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of min

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.  Colossians 3:17

 Whatever you do...in both your words and your actions do them in the Name of Christ and do it in such a way that brings both Glory and Honor to God!  Forget your empty rituals and traditions...let go of your relics and outward religious displays.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.  James 1:27




  So you say that you have good religion...really...prove it.  Why is it so easy for us to believe and trust God for the things that "we" need and lose sight that we are supposed to be equally or more concerned about our brothers and sisters.  How is it that we are able to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to th

Woman, lady, female, miss, Mrs., or madam, whatever you title yourself to be you are a woman or are you? What is the true meaning of a woman? What is she created to be? What are her true qualities and characteristics?
God's created plan for a woman is a spectacular and phenomenal being. She is filled with inner beauty and grace. For she knows that her exquisiteness lies not in skin, hair, figure or attire but in the treasures of her Spirit. She is as her creator, wise, glori

A bystander said, "Master, will only a few be saved?"
He said, "Whether few or many is none of your business. Put your mind on your life with God. The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires your total attention. A lot of you are going to assume that you'll sit down to God's salvation banquet just because you've been hanging around the neighborhood all your lives. Well, one day you're going to be banging on the door, wanting to get in, but you'll find the door locked and the Master saying

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Rom 6:23



  Another word for wages is cost or price.  The price of sin is death.  Many people have heard this statement before, but like Eve in the Garden of Eden, many of them fall for that old "You're not really going to die" trick.  We mistake God's Grace period and actually think that we will never have

Sisterhood of Yesterday

pexels-photo-4672299.jpeg?auto=compress&cs=tinysrgb&dpr=2&h=750&w=1260&profile=RESIZE_710x

by Heather Sargent  

When did it become an 'every mother for herself' world? Didn't it used to be a sisterhood of women raising their children together once upon a time?


I think often of what that would be like. To have the women in your life around you supporting you and befriending you. And how you would do the same for them. I imagine children playing while their moms sit together giggling about what silly thing their husband said to them this morning. Or how little Johnny got in trouble

God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand.
   I'm an open book to you;
      even from a distance, you know what I'm thinking.
   You know when I leave and when I get back;
      I'm never out of your sight.
   You know everything I'm going to say
      before I start the first sentence.
   I look behind me and you're there,
      then up ahead and you're there, too—
      your reassuring presence, coming and going.
   This is too much, too wonderful—
      I can't take it all in!

Place Your Life Before God
  So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and q

  I'm speaking to you out of deep gratitude for all that God has given me, and especially as I have responsibilities in relation to you. Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it's important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God. No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.

  In this way we are like the various p

 Love from the center of who you are; don't fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.  Don't burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don't quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.   Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. Laugh with your happy friends when they're happy; share tears

You Can Be A Happy Woman

On May 22, 2015, a woman Minister of God referred to men as containers bought by a woman whose contents are not known at the time of purchase. On arrival at home, the opening of the containers reveal the true contents. She said some women found beverages in their containers. Some women found sand in theirs; while many women found granite. Discoveries of women after marriage differ with respect to the true contents of their men.

This is true.

...and that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we'll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.  Be prepared. You're up against far more than

It’s easy to believe that success or popularity equals “manhood”. But do not be deceived! The God who created you and knows you intimately, looks beneath the surface into the recesses of the heart, and what really matters is what he sees in there. Lose that perspective and begin to live your life with the ideals of the world, guided by your own selfish desires, and fall short of what God has planned for your life. On the other hand, live life with an undying deep desire to

   Too many times we sit and let people spoon feed us ideas about everything, and without ever checking it or finding out for ourselves whether it is true or even good for us we just eat it up.  When it comes to our Christian Walk, we need to be active participants in it, meaning we should be spending time with God through prayer, reading His word and fellowship/worship.  Neglecting to do so makes for one weak Christian, suspect to being misled and misdirected by all of the many voices out t

 Jesus entered Jericho and made his way through the town.  There was a man there named Zacchaeus. He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich.  He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd.   So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going to pass that way.
   When Jesus came by, he looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” he said. “Quick, come down! I must be a guest in your ho
