One in Heart

Oh there is nothing like being awakened with the gift of perfect unfailing, unconditional love for ya!!! Jesus’s love brings such blessed assurance to my soul, meaning to my life and HOPE – Having Only Positive, Powerful, Promised Expectations!!! Knowing of His love and His nothing but good plans for my life, creates in me a heart to seek Him and live in loving Him back through acts of courage, strength, bravery, kindness, righteousness, love and truth!!! With His Spirit moving my soul and He providing all the love and ability and needs for my life today as I look to Him, I face this day with joy knowing I am not alone, but awakened as this song says here for a divine love journey with the One who created me for and laid His whole life down for me to be with Him as His beloved kingdom family forever!!! I want to learn from His creative wisdom that understands and created all of life, too!!! What truth do you glean from His Gospel of Grace today??? I encourage ya to have fun in putting it into action and perhaps share the Word, too, if Father moves your heart to do so!!! Enjoy the adventure of it with Father!!! He delights in you just for being His beloved one of faith, with or without action!!!

I am spoken to by this verse today by the attitude of Jesus towards His Father who loved Him deeply through all of His life. Of Him, Jesus said:

” I and the Father are one.” John 10:30

Truth is that the same power and relationship lives within us of faith in Christ, too, because of the indwelling Holy Spirit that lives within us upon faith in what Christ did on the cross as our Savior to give us that same personal intimacy (in-to-me-see) relationship of Father understanding our heart, empowering our hearts and us being able to know the heart of our God of love and being awakened by Him to live a life of divine love!!! As He pours His love into us, let us let Him pour it out to others around us today that all may be one with Him!!! I love that thought!!! One in heart with our Father with ya’s!!! Much love!!! Thankful!!! Happy and smiling!!! 🙂 It’s gonna be a good day!!!

The Covenant of Peace

New day greetings, dear family of faith!!! As I reflect upon Father’s heart to me today, I am reminded by the Holy Spirit of our Father’s Word about His covenant of peace that is ours through our faith in Christ Jesus:

“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed.” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.”

Isaiah 54:10

This is a promise of the Old Testament that was the forerunner to the covenant of peace or grace that was fulfilled in Christ Jesus going to the cross so that all who believe in Him can have reconciliation with our holy God who has no part of sin. However, through Christ as a substitute sacrifice in the place of all humankind, our wages for sin that is death was paid in full by Jesus who took our penalty for sin brought on to us by the devil in the Garden of Eden as talked about in the book of Genesis. At that point in time, our Father promised a Savior to us with these strong words to the devil/serpent who tempted Adam and Eve to sin and question the truth and faithfulness of God to us as His people:

“And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head and you will strike his heel.”

Genesis 3:15

There are 300 Biblical prophecies in the Old Testament written over thousands of years that pointed the way to the coming of the Savior as God promised in the Garden of Eden and history shows that Jesus Christ fulfilled every single one of them as God became a man and went to the cross in our place out of His compassion for us and His desire for us to have peace with Him and be His kingdom family forever!!! His Word says:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His One and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.”

John 3:16

 Our Father’s Word tells us that the test of a true prophet is that what they prophecy comes true and one of the Old Testament prophets that spoke of the Jesus being born as God is here:

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Isaiah 9:6

Many who watched for the coming of the Savior recognized Jesus by what was happening in the reality of life before them that was prophesied about the promised Messiah or Savior. One such man was Simeon who is described in Luke 2 as a “righteous and devout man looking for the consolation of Israel and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law, then he took Him into his arms, and blessed God, and said, “Now Lord, You are releasing Your bond-servant to depart in peace, “According to Your word; For my eyes have seen Your salvation, Which You have prepared in the presence of all peoples, “A LIGHT OF REVELATION TO THE GENTILES, And the glory of Your people Israel.”

John the Baptist, a cousin in the family of line to Jesus who was said to be a forerunner telling the world of the coming of the Messiah recognized Jesus as the Messiah when he baptized Him and he said of Jesus:

“Look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! This is the one I meant when I said, “A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.” I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel. Then John gave this testimony: “I see the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, “The man on whom you see the Sprit come down and remain is the one who will baptist with the Holy Spirit.” I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”

John 1:29-34

Many saw Jesus go to the cross, be buried and walking among them in resurrected life along with many other infallible proofs of His resurrection. His body has never been found dead as He said would happen and was prophesized in Isaiah 53. Jesus told the religious leaders wanting to destroy Him that if they destroyed His temple (His body) that He would raise it up again in three days and that He did!!! Many have since then been moved and anointed by the Holy Spirit to share His teachings, one of which was His disciple John who wrote the last book of the Bible called Revelation. In the last chapter of the book, there is great warning that nobody should ever write what is contrary to the Book of Revelation that speaks of Jesus as our Savior from sin and death and that through Him, we have reconciliation and peace with God and forever life in His kingdom as His people of faith. Through faith we are the children of God as this song says here!!! Therefore, whenever people since that time write or tell of God, perhaps claiming to be modern-day prophets, it is important that they meet the tests of a true prophet:

  • What they prophecy comes true. (Deuteronomy 18;20-21)
  • You will know them by their fruit. (Matthew 7:16-20) What they share is not contrary to our Father’s covenant of peace in Christ Jesus. If someone says Jesus was not sufficient as a sacrifice for our sins and that we must work our way into heaven and God’s acceptance, turn around and run the other way for there are false prophets in the world and much of Jesus’ ministry on earth was in warning about them when He walked the earth:

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”  

(Matthew 7:15)

For example: since Jesus’ time, here are a couple of men who have called themselves prophets and a link to some questions about their teachings compared to the teachings of Christ and God’s covenant of peace that He said would never be removed:

Mohammad’s teachings compared to Christ’s:

http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/articles/jesus-muhammad.aspx

Joseph Smith’s teachings compared to Christ’s:

https://www.namb.net/apologetics/comparison-chart-mormonism-and-christianity

These things are important to ponder now as opposed to waiting until too late for they could be the difference between life and death, and the difference between what is of this world and of heaven, the kingdom of God. Everyone has their own choice, but as for me,  I’m a gal convinced of Jesus as He has said of Himself in what is recorded of His teachings:

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

God promised a covenant of peace and freedom from the Old Testament Law. He is our Savior – our salvation in Christ Jesus to all who believe in Him:

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”

John 8:36

As King David wrote in the Psalms thousands of years ago:

“Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.”

Psalm 68:19

When considering all the prophets…considering their teaching and the consistency with the Bible that was written over thousands of years, by many different authors on several different continents, but all is consistent in telling one story – the redemption of humankind from the wages of their sin into a peaceful reconciled forever love relationship with our holy righteous God by God Himself as our Father and Savior. Through faith in Him, we are the children of God. Oh that all just makes me smile and celebrating being set free forever by Jesus’ unfailing, unconditional love!!! His promise to us is “never will I leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5)

“Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in His sight, without blemish and free from accusation–if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven and of which, I, Paul, (Apostle Paul) have become a servant.”

Colossians 1:21-23

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”

Romans 8:1

Qualified by Grace

Powerful life greetings to you in Christ Jesus by faith!!! I want to inspire our hearts today that our Father’s grace is powerfully at work in each one of us of faith for carrying out His divine purpose for each one of our lives no matter how we might think that we fall short or the devil tries to get us to believe that we are incompetent and failures. Huh!!! We through faith are forever winners and he is just blowing hot hellfire steam at God’s people of faith in his incompetent attempts to discourage people from stepping into life as the Holy Spirit moves us to keep sharing truth and love in the world. One example of the power of God working through one who considered himself the worst of sinners wrote 14 books of the Holy Bible if you count the book of Hebrews over a 15-20 year period of time after his personal encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus, bent on the persecution of Christians out of his false beliefs. Every person has this same potential for divine turn around in life as the light of truth is shared!!! There is no failure in life, only learning experiences for those in faith in Christ Jesus!!!

No Failure

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

Romans 8:1

As we learn of our Father, it makes a heavenly difference in our lives!!! God believes in people (including you and me of faith) being empowered with Him working in us to join Him in His purposes in this world as He says:

“For it is God who works in us to will and act according to His purpose.”

Philippians 2:13

God doesn’t call the qualified – He qualifies the called. How is Father calling your heart with divine passion to make a difference where you are in this world??? He will qualify you as you say here am I Lord, send me!!! Ya don’t have to for eternal life salvation, but ya get to have purpose on earth to let your life count and you shall be greatly rewarded for being the blessing of YOU AND JESUS TEAM while yer here!!! 🙂

moving-in-grace

YYYEEESSS!!! BE HEAVEN ON EARTH YOU SPECIAL SAINT!!! Believe in you and Jesus team because He does!!! YYYEEESSS YOU CAN MAKE A HEAVENLY DIFFERENCE IN LIFE HOW HE MOVES YOU TO DO ALL THINGS THROUGH HIM WHO GIVES YOU STRENGTH, SO PLEASE DON’T EVER LET THE ENEMY CONVINCE YOU THAT YOUR LIFE DOES NOT MATTER OR IS HOPELESS OR NOT MAKING A DIFFERENCE!!!

All In the World Together

Psalm 36:7 says “How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.”

Hi, precious saints of faith!!! One of the beautiful things that I love about our Father is that He welcomes all people to be part of His forever kingdom family if they choose to be!!! Like any good Father, He does not allow evil to destroy His family. He protects us from the enemy’s destruction and as He tells us in His word, nothing can take our soul away from Father. As Jesus told the Pharisees who wanted to kill Jesus that if they did destroy His body, it would be raised up again new and the same is true for us as His people of faith!!! Jesus said do not fear those who can destroy your body, but fear those who will destroy your soul. Nobody can steal our soul if we have faith in Christ Jesus as His royal kingdom family as He tells us in His written Word (the Holy Bible).

“For God so loved the world that He gave His One and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall never perish.”

John 3:16

Lion and Cross.jpg

Father has reconciled us close to Him in a covenant of eternal peace with Him, forever safe from the harms of the devil through Christ’s battle on the cross with the enemy. Oh Jesus is as gentle as a lamb and as ferocious and powerful as a lion towards the enemy of us as His people!!! Jesus battled as the perfect final lamb sacrifice for sin according to the Old Testament Law with the strength of being as a mighty Lion from the people tribe of Judah. He then descended into hell, took the keys of eternal freedom from the enemy and arose to be seated in heaven next to the Father. He was able to do so because Christ’s victory over the cross showed the enemy that Christ had all authority and power over anything he could hurl at us trying to destroy us!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! FOREVER VICTORIOUS IN CHRIST JESUS FOR FOREVER LIFE NOT JUST HERE ON EARTH!!!

Jesus says of us as His people of faith:

“My Father, who has given them (us) to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.”

John 10:29

Upon faith in Christ Jesus, our hearts (souls) are forever sealed as a child of God!!! WHEW!!! WHAT A RELIEF!!! We are a new creation for life forever as this song says here and empowered with the Holy Spirit that testifies to our spirit that we are His (Romans 8:16) and capable of doing all things thru Christ who gives us strength. (Philippians 2:13) As long as we have purpose in this life, we will be here on earth and enabled to be a vessel through whom the power of Christ works!!! Going in purpose with Jesus with ya all on earth for now and forever heavenly kingdom victory by keeping sharing the good news of Jesus’ love and victory for all who will join us as kingdom family!!!

All for One and One for all as kingdom saints in the world for heaven!!! I love that open invitation Father gives to all people to be all for being His kingdom family and to know that He is for all people to be His family if they so choose to live in faith in Him!!!

World full of people.jpg

Wherever that devil dude threatens us to make us feel destroyed or defeated, we are never defeated in Christ Jesus and we are all God’s children of faith!!! We are more than conquerors in all these things through Christ Jesus who loves us!!! (Romans 8:37) Blessed forever are we, so let’s claim it. Father says that if we resist the devil he will flee from us!!! RESIST THE DEVIL, DEAR ONES!!! I’M SEEKING TO RESIST HIM WITH JESUS’ VICTORY AND POWER IN ME, TOO!!! GONNA WIN BECAUSE WE HAVE ALREADY WON THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS’ VICTORY!!! THE DEVIL HAS NO POWER OVER US!!! WE ARE FOREVER ANCHORED SAFE THROUGH THE CROSS BY HIS LOVE!!!

Going Beyond Yourself

Oh it’s a powerful day of heaven with us on earth, dear kingdom family of faith!!! Today as I begin my day with quietness and have time to hear the voice of my Father speak to my heart, He reminds me of the power of prayer and that He has not left us as orphans on this earth to battle the enemy of life alone!!! HOOORRRAAAHHH!!! PRAISE JESUS!!!

As it was in the day of the disciples, Jesus told the disciples when they were not able to accomplish something on their own, that they needed to pray for some things were beyond their own ability:

And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”

Mark 9:29

Satan Fighting Jesus

praying-with-bible

Their efforts were in trying to drive out demonic influence upon a person. Satan is always seeking a vessel through whom he can set up house, take captive and as people of heaven, it is within our power to claim our own lives from his strongholds and help others claim their lives’ victory through the authority of Christ Jesus, but we must include heaven’s strength and power to have the victory!!! On our own we cannot do so, but as we stay connected through prayer with our Father and call upon His power to impart to us, we are able to conquer the enemy of life!!! Therefore, I just want to encourage us as people of faith in Christ Jesus to pray, pray, pray as Father tells us to and in so doing, we shall see heaven thwart enemy plans!!! Oh I have seen it many times and even last night and this morning, I saw the miracles of heaven happen as I called down the powers of heaven for myself and others!!! Greater is the One living inside of us than He who is living in the world as this song says here as Father says in His Word:

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Acts 1:8

Light to Cross Into EaRTH

chain-of-failure

“…in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:37-39

The saints overcome the enemy of life not on our own, but in these ways:

  • through the blood of the Lamb (Jesus – the perfect Lamb of God as the final sacrifice for the sins of all people who have faith in Him: “For God so loved the world that He sent His One and only Son (Himself became a man in the flesh) that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16)
  • by the word of their testimony (confessed and open faith in Christ Jesus)
  • they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death (they stood firm in Jesus against the devil in life circumstances that the enemy of life threatened them with) Jesus did the same thing and rose up victorious and a conqueror for heaven over the devil!!!
  • prayer to the Father in Jesus’ name. Jesus said “Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” John 14:13 ESV When the Father is glorified in the Son, He is glorified in our eyes!!! Jesus will be found praiseworthy in our eyes forever as we seek His help in prayer!!!

I’m a gal going in faith with ya’s family of faith!!! It’s a win, win, win life always as we seek and claim Jesus in all of life!!!

Seeing with Jesus’ Eyes

Can you imagine if everything about our lives on earth was 100% trouble free and without anything to cause us to look to God for help or recognize His incredible power!!! He is worthy of fearing (reverencing/respecting) for He can give us life and He can take us out forever!!! God is One not to be on the contrary side of because when this life on earth is done, there is a place for those who do not want to be part of His kingdom of forever love!!! He is not afraid to let that be known about Him and He is not afraid to let people know how much He loves them and has a good plan , not evil, for their future. He wants to give them hope if we will trust Him in this life!!! He works good through all things that we face in life as we look to Him. Hard things in life are the testing of our faith that proves our faith genuine as we experience Him in the midst of all of life, whether good times or bad. There is good purpose in it all. Trials I have experienced in my life have drawn me closer to my God and I have seen His incredible sovereignty at work beyond anything I could ever do on my own to bless myself and others. This life on earth with the devil on the prowl is a hard one at times. Jesus has not left us alone as orphans, but has given us light (His eyes) to see with!!!

How has God given to you that you can in turn impart to help someone else and/or make the world a better place??? What is your first step in moving towards that effort??? How has God given someone else light that has helped you personally??? Let us give Him thanks for His gift of light!!!

Our Father will lead you step by step as you look to Him as your divine partner in bringing heaven to earth!!! Thomas Edison was a great example of how he used the gift of life and light God gave him to create the lightbulb!!! That same God of light lives in YOU one of faith!!! Jesus is all about giving light to us as people as He has in His written Word (His love letter spoken to us – the Holy Bible). Of Jesus it is written:

“The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.”

John 1:9

Jesus has came into the world and upon our faith in Him, His Holy Spirit lives within us to be light to us individually to be His light into the world as He told His disciples when He told them to go into all the world and make disciples:

“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.”

Matthew 5:14

He also promises that He has not left us alone, but that His Holy Spirit is with us to help us:

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Acts 1:8

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And sure I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:20

Jesus wants to work through us as His people to reveal His love and light to all the world as  we look to Him to help us as this song says here.  Our Father placed us on this earth with good purpose for each one of us!!! I’m proud of you for going into the world to be YOU as only YOU and Jesus with YOU can!!! Father created you good and He who has began a good work in us each one is going to continue it until the day of completion (the day He returns to earth to usher in His kingdom of heaven in full for those who want to be part of His kingdom.) He is a gentleman and does not force anybody to love Him, be part of His plans or live forever in His kingdom. Those who choose to, are forever blessed to be part of His royal kingdom family, even now!!! His desire:

“The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance (to have a change of mind).”

2 Peter 3:9

Oh that all just makes me smile and in order for people to know in order to choose, they must hear as Father says:

“But how can they call on Him to save them unless they believe in Him? And how can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him? And how can they hear about Him unless someone tells them? “

Romans 10:14

Perhaps YOU are that someone?!! 🙂

Nothing Ventured, Yet Gained

Have you ever heard it said “nothing ventured, nothing gained.” It is a motto that implies that if we don’t step out and try in life, we are not going to reap a gain. While our Father does speak of us reaping what we sow into life, there is a gift of perfect gain that is ours just because we believe in Jesus, the Giver of all good gifts as His holy Word says (the Bible):

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of heavenly lights who does not change like shifting shadows.” 

James 1:17

“…your Father knows how to give good gifts to those who ask Him.”

Matthew 7:11

In the efforts of people to live perfectly on our own ventures, our Father makes clear that we will not gain heaven, but when we venture to place our faith in Christ, God became a man as our Savior on the cross to open up the gain of being a member of our Father’s forever kingdom family, we gain that – all the glorious riches of heaven as our forever home!!! It is truly a case of nothing ventured, great gain!!! Now how sweet is our Father to give us such a love gift as that, but He is also a great motivator also to us as His kingdom children of faith as He promises that when we do venture out into the world with a motive of doing good works for the cause of heaven, that we will gain on top of already having heaven forever!!! His promise to us is this:

“Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.”

Revelation 22:12

It is our choice in life as to what good things we choose to do and they are not to earn us a place in our Father’s kingdom. We always have a home with our Father through our faith in Him. It is up to our heart what we do in life. Father just says, you do extra things to bless me and others, you will be blessed for it. It will not go unnoticed!!! It is clearly a case of nothing ventured, great gain and extra venture, even greater gain!!! So whatever your heart chooses, dear ones of faith, you are forever loved with unfailing, unconditional love and blessed beyond all we can even begin to ask or imagine as Father tells us in His Word:

“What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived – the things God has prepared for those who love him–

1 Corinthians 2:9

It has been my experience in life, though, as Father says it is true…as we step out into life to refresh others out of a motive of love for our Father who has blessed us with sooo much, our hearts here on earth will be greatly refreshed as well. There is joy to our own souls that is gained when we venture to love and oh that joy just makes us smile!!! Smiling in life – what a great gain for something ventured from the heart!!! How is your heart moved to venture into loving where you are today??? I smile as I think about you smiling at the gain it will bring to ya, dear ones!!! I like this song here that tells of giving thanks to Father for His good gifts to us and putting love in action to reveal Father’s love and goodness to others as our hearts are moved – such a beautiful thing!!! Amen?!! 🙂
