WOW!

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I enjoy studying History. As a young person, I strongly disliked it, but as I have grown older, I have come to enjoy studying it all. One era that has grabbed my attention is the Holocaust, and being here in Europe has given me an opportunity to see these places up close. It has kind of become personal to me. So, when I came across this story I knew I had to post it.

I see Irena as a true hero, and I know that all the children who lived because of her would agree.


When Hitler and his Nazis built the Warsaw Ghetto and herded 500,000 Polish Jews behind its walls to await liquidation, many Polish gentiles turned their backs or applauded. Not Irena Sendler. An unfamiliar name to most people, but this remarkable woman defied the Nazis and saved 2,500 Jewish children by smuggling them out of the Warsaw Ghetto. As a health worker, she sneaked the children out between 1942 and 1943to safe hiding places and found non-Jewish families to adopt them.

Her achievement went largely unnoticed for many years. Then the story was uncovered by four young students at Uniontown High School, in Kansas, who were the winners of the 2000 Kansas state National History Day competition by writing a play Life in a Jar about the heroic actions of Irena Sendler. The girls - Elizabeth Cambers, Megan Stewart, Sabrina Coons and Janice Underwood - have since gained international recognition, along with their teacher, Norman Conard. The presentation, seen in many venues in the United States and popularized by National Public Radio, C-SPAN and CBS, has brought Irena Sendler's story to a wider public.

The students continue their prize-winning dramatic presentation Life in a Jar.

Irena Sendler was born in 1910 in Otwock, a town some 15 miles southeast of Warsaw. She was greatly influenced by her father who was one of the first Polish Socialists. As a doctor his patients were mostly poor Jews.

In 1939, Germany invaded Poland, and the brutality of the Nazis accelerated with murder, violence and terror.

At the time, Irena was a Senior Administrator in the Warsaw Social Welfare Department, which operated the canteens in every district of the city. Previously, the canteens provided meals, financial aid, and other services for orphans, the elderly, the poor and the destitute. Now, through Irena, the canteens also provided clothing, medicine and money for the Jews. They were registered under fictitious Christian names, and to prevent inspections, the Jewish families were reported as being afflicted with such highly infectious diseases as typhus and tuberculosis.

But in 1942, the Nazis herded hundreds of thousands of Jews into a 16-block area that came to be known as the Warsaw Ghetto. The Ghetto was sealed and the Jewish families ended up behind its walls, only to await certain death.

Irena Sendler was so appalled by the conditions that she joined Zegota, the Council for Aid to Jews, organized by the Polish underground resistance movement, as one of its first recruits and directed the efforts to rescue Jewish children.

To be able to enter the Ghetto legally, Irena managed to be issued a pass from Warsaws Epidemic Control Department and she visited the Ghetto daily, reestablished contacts and brought food, medicines and clothing. But 5,000 people were dying a month from starvation and disease in the Ghetto, and she decided to help the Jewish children to get out.

For Irena Sendler, a young mother herself, persuading parents to part with their children was in itself a horrendous task. Finding families willing to shelter the children, and thereby willing to risk their life if the Nazis ever found out, was also not easy.

Irena Sendler, who wore a star armband as a sign of her solidarity to Jews, began smuggling children out in an ambulance. She recruited at least one person from each of the ten centers of the Social Welfare Department.

With their help, she issued hundreds of false documents with forged signatures. Irena Sendler successfully smuggled almost 2,500 Jewish children to safety and gave them temporary new identities.

Some children were taken out in gunnysacks or body bags. Some were buried inside loads of goods. A mechanic took a baby out in his toolbox. Some kids were carried out in potato sacks, others were placed in coffins, some entered a church in the Ghetto which had two entrances. One entrance opened into the Ghetto, the other opened into the Aryan side of Warsaw. They entered the church as Jews and exited as Christians. "Can you guarantee they will live?" Irena later recalled the distraught parents asking. But she could only guarantee they would die if they stayed. "In my dreams," she said, "I still hear the cries when they left their parents."

Irena Sendler accomplished her incredible deeds with the active assistance of the church. "I sent most of the children to religious establishments," she recalled. "I knew I could count on the Sisters." Irena also had a remarkable record of cooperation when placing the youngsters: "No one ever refused to take a child from me," she said.

The children were given false identities and placed in homes, orphanages and convents. Irena Sendler carefully noted, in coded form, the children's original names and their new identities. She kept the only record of their true identities in jars buried beneath an apple tree in a neighbor's back yard, across the street from German barracks, hoping she could someday dig up the jars, locate the children and inform them of their past.

In all, the jars contained the names of 2,500 children ...

But the Nazis became aware of Irena's activities, and on October 20, 1943 she was arrested, imprisoned and tortured by the Gestapo, who broke her feet and legs. She ended up in the Pawiak Prison, but no one could break her spirit. Though she was the only one who knew the names and addresses of the families sheltering the Jewish children, she withstood the torture, refusing to betray either her associates or any of the Jewish children in hiding.

Sentenced to death, Irena was saved at the last minute when Zegota members bribed one of the Germans to halt the execution. She escaped from prison but for the rest of the war she was pursued by the Gestapo.

After the war she dug up the jars and used the notes to track down the 2,500 children she placed with adoptive families and to reunite them with relatives scattered across Europe. But most lost their families during the Holocaust in Nazi death camps.

The children had known her only by her code name Jolanta. But years later, after she was honored for her wartime work, her picture appeared in a newspaper. "A man, a painter, telephoned me," said Sendler, "`I remember your face,' he said. `It was you who took me out of the ghetto.' I had many calls like that!"

Irena Sendler did not think of herself as a hero. She claimed no credit for her actions. "I could have done more," she said. "This regret will follow me to my death."

She has been honored by international Jewish organizations - in 1965 she accorded the title of Righteous Among the Nations by the Yad Vashem organization in Jerusalem and in 1991 she was made an honorary citizen of Israel.

Irena Sendler was awarded Poland's highest distinction, the Order of White Eagle in Warsaw Monday Nov. 10, 2003.

This lovely, courageous woman was one of the most dedicated and active workers in aiding Jews during the Nazi occupation of Poland. Her courage enabled not only the survival of 2,500 Jewish children but also of the generations of their descendants.

In 2007 considerable publicity accompanied Sendler's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. While failed nominations for the award have not been officially announced by the Nobel organization for 50 years, the International Peace Research Institute, Oslo, reported in 2007 that Irena Sendler's nominator had made the nomination public. Regardless of its legitimacy, talk of the nomination focused a spotlight on Sendler and her wartime achievements. The 2007 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and former Vice President of the United States Al Gore.

She passed away on May 12, 2008, at the age of 98.

Love Believes all things

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from JESUS CHRIST our LORD and SAVIOR.

I found this great devotion from a "Our Daily Bread" book. It was a reminder to me, and I believe we all need to be reminded of this truth. I am going to type verbatim from the book. GOD bless you all! Happy Sunday!

It was 40 years ago or more that I observed a friend of mine showing great affection for someone I considered unworthy of love. I thought my friend was being taken in, and I was afraid he would be disillusioned and saddened in the end.

When I expressed my concern, he replied, "When I stand before my LORD, I hope HE will say of me that I've loved too many, rather than too few." I've never forgotten his words.

Paul insists that "[Love] believes all things" (1Corinthians 13:7). Love "believes" in people. It can see the potential in them. It believes that GOD can take the most unattractive and unworthy individual and turn that person into a masterpiece of beauty and grace. If love errs, it must err in the way of trustfulness and hopefulness.

Certainly we must be aware of danger when we see it coming, and become "as wise as serpents" (Matthew 10:16). Tough love may be the best response to irresponsible and foolish people, but we can be too guarded, too wary and distrustful.

It doesn't do us any real harm to be hoodwinked and defrauded (Matthew 5:38-48). It's better to believe in someone and have your heart broken than to have no heart at all. British poet Alfred Tennyson wrote, "'Tis better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all."

~David Roper~ Our Daily Bread

Lord,
Help us to believe in people and all that in them YOU can do, so we can say we've loved too many, ranther than too few.

Love looks beyond what people are to what they can become.

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

Our Father Who Art In Heaven.
Yes?
Don't interrupt me. I'm praying..
But -- you called ME!
Called you?
No, I didn't call you.
I'm praying.
Our Father who art in Heaven.
There -- you did it again!
Did what?
Called ME.You said,
"Our Father who art in Heaven"
Well, here I am..What's on your mind?
But I didn't mean anything by it.
I was, you know, just saying my prayers for the day.
I always say the Lord's Prayer.
It makes me feel good,
kind of like fulfilling a duty.
Well, all right.
Go on.
Okay, Hallowed be thy name .
Hold it right there.What do you mean by that?
By what?
By "Hallowed be thy name"?
It means, it means . . good grief,
I don't know what it means.
How in the world should I know?
It's just a part of the prayer.
By the way, what does it mean?
It means to honor greatly, to set apart as HOLY.
Hey, that makes sense..
I never thought about what 'hallowed' meant before.
Thanks.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven.
Do you really mean that?
Sure, why not?
What are you doing about it?
Doing? Why, nothing, I guess.
I just think it would be kind of neat if you got
control, of everything down here like you have up
there. We're kinda in a mess down here you know.
Yes, I know;but, have I got control of you?
Well, I go to church.
That isn't what I asked you.
What about your bad temper?
You've really got a problem there, you know.
And then there's the way you spend
your money -- all on yourself.
And what about the kind of books you read ?

Now hold on just a minute!
Stop picking on me!
I'm just as good as some of the rest
of those People at church!
Excuse ME..
I thought you were praying
for MY will to be done.
If that is to happen,
it will have to start with the ones
who are praying for it.
Like you -- for example ..
Oh, all right. I guess I do have some hang-ups.
Now that you mention it,
I could probably name some others.
So could I.
I haven't thought about it very much until now,
but I really would like to cut out some of those things.
I would like to, you know, be really free.
Good. Now we're getting somewhere.
We'll work together -- You and ME.
I'm proud of You.
Look, LORD, if you don't mind,
I need to finish up here.
This is taking a lot longer than it usually does.
Give us this day, our daily bread.
You need to cut out some of the bread..
You've been overindulging.
Hey, wait a minute! What is this?
Here I was doing my religious duty,
and all of a sudden you break in
and remind me of all my hang-ups.
Praying is a dangerous thing.
You just might get what you ask for.
Remember, you called ME -- and here I am.
It's too late to stop now.
Keep praying. ( pause . . )
Well, go on.
I'm scared to.
Scared? Of what?
I know what you'll say.
Try ME.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us.
What about Ann?
See? I knew it!
I knew you would bring her up!
Why, Lord, she's told lies about me, spread stories.
She never paid back the money she owes me.
I've sworn to get even with her!
But -- your prayer --
What about your prayer?
I didn't -- mean it..
Well, at least you're honest.
But, it's quite a load carrying around all that
bitterness and resentment isn't it?
Yes, but I'll feel better as soon as I get even with her.
Boy, have I got some plans for her.
She'll wish she had never been born.
No, you won't feel any better.
You'll feel worse.
Revenge isn't sweet.
You know how unhappy you are --
Well, I can change that.
You can? How?
Forgive Ann.
Then, I'll forgive you;
And the hate and the sin,
will be Ann's problem -- not yours.
You will have settled the problem
as far as you are concerned.
Oh, you know, you're right.
You always are.
And more than I want revenge,
I want to be right with You . . (sigh).
All right, all right . .
I forgive her.
There now!
Wonderful!
How do you feel?

Hmmmm. Well, not bad.
Not bad at all!
In fact, I feel pretty great!
You know, I don't think I'll go to bed uptight tonight.
I haven't been getting much rest, you know.
Yeah, I know.
But, you're not through with your prayer, are you?
Go on.
Oh, all right.And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Good! Good! I'll do that.
Just don't put yourself in a place
where you can be tempted.
What do you mean by that?
You know what I mean.
Yeah. I know.
Okay..
Go ahead. Finish your prayer.
For Thine is the kingdom,
and the power,
and the glory forever.
Amen.
Do you know what would bring me glory?
What would really make me happy?
No, but I'd like to know.
I want to please you now.
I've really made a mess of things.
I want to truly follow you..
I can see now how great that would be.
So, tell me . . .How do I make you happy?
YOU just did.

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you all from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.


Every time I am asked to pray, I think of the old deacon who always prayed, 'Lord, prop us up on our leanin' side.' After hearing him pray that prayer many times, someone asked him why he prayed that prayer so fervently.
He answered, 'Well sir, you see, it's like this... I got an old barn out back. It's been there a long time; it's withstood a lot of weather; it's gone through a lot of storms, and it's stood for many years.
It's still standing. But one day I noticed it was leaning to one side a bit.
So I went and got some pine poles and propped it up on its leaning side so it wouldn't fall.
Then I got to thinking about that and how much I was like that old barn. I've been around a long time.
I've withstood a lot of life's storms. I've withstood a lot of bad weather in life, I've withstood a lot of hard times, and I'm still standing too. But I find myself leaning to one side from time to time, so I like to ask the Lord to prop us up on our leaning side, 'cause I figure a lot of us get to leaning at times.
Sometimes we get to leaning toward anger, leaning toward bitterness, leaning toward hatred, leaning toward cussing, leaning toward a lot of things that we shouldn't. So we need to pray, 'Lord, prop us up on our leaning side, so we will stand straight and tall again, to glorify the Lord.''

And They Crucified HIM

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

One day a while back, a man, his heart heavy with grief, was walking in the woods. As he thought about his life this day, he knew many things were not right. He thought about those who had lied about him back when he had a job.

His thoughts turned to those who had stolen his things and cheated him. He remembered family that had passed on. His mind turned to the illness he had, that no one could cure. His very soul was filled with anger, resentment, and frustration.

Standing there this day, searching for answers he could not find, knowing all else had failed him, he knelt at the base of an old oak tree to seek the one he knew would always be there. And with tears in his eyes, he prayed:

'LORD- YOU have done wonderful things for me in this life. YOU have told me to do many things for YOU, and I happily obeyed. Today, YOU have told me to forgive. I am sad, LORD, because I cannot, I don't know how. It is not fair LORD, I didn't deserve these wrongs that were done against me and I shouldn't have to forgive. As perfect as your way is LORD, this one thing I cannot do, for I don't know how to forgive. My anger is so deep LORD, I fear I may not hear YOU, but I pray YOU teach me to do the one thing I cannot do: Teach me to forgive .'

As he knelt there in the quiet shade of that old oak tree, he felt something fall onto his shoulder. He opened his eyes. Out of the corner of one eye, he saw something red on his shirt. He could not turn to see what it was because where the oak tree had been was a large square piece of wood in the ground. He raised his head and saw two feet held to the wood with a large spike through them.

He raised his head more, and tears came to his eyes as he saw JESUS hanging on a cross. He saw spikes in HIS hands, a gash in HIS side, a torn and battered body, deep thorns sunk into HIS head. Finally he saw the suffering and pain on HIS precious face. As their eyes met, the man's tears turned to sobbing, and JESUS began to speak.

'Have you ever told a lie?' HE asked?

The man answered - 'Yes, LORD.

''Have you ever been given too much change and kept it?'

The man answered - 'Yes. LORD.' And the man sobbed more and more.

'Have you ever taken something from work that wasn't yours?' JESUS asked?

And the man answered, 'Yes, LORD.'

'Have you ever sworn, using my FATHER's name in vain?'

The man, crying now, answered - 'Yes, LORD.'

As JESUS asked many more times, 'Have you ever'? The man's crying became uncontrollable, for he could only answer - 'Yes, LORD'.

Then JESUS turned HIS head from one side to the other, and the man felt something fall on his other shoulder He looked and saw that it was the BLOOD of JESUS. When he looked back up, his eyes met those of JESUS, and there was a look of love the man had never seen or known before.

JESUS said, 'I didn't deserve this either, but I forgive you.'

GOD bless you all!

Are you a fisher of Men?


Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

Enjoy the reposts! I am extremely overloaded, so I will try to be back with original content, next week.

As I was laying down my burden from Sunday, The LORD recalled the story of Moses to my mind. Do you remember when Moses was a baby and his family tried to hide him from the soldiers who were ordered to kill every male child two years old and younger? After some time Moses became harder to hide from the soldiers, so his mom made him a little wicker basket and place her precious wee one inside and pushed it down into the reeds. As a mother how could she have just put him in the water like that? Well, I believe she had faith in GOD, and she trusted GOD completely with her burden.

Was it difficult for her to do that? Yes, I bet it was! It takes incredible faith to place your child into a basket and send it down stream into the unknown. Wow! That is faith my friends!

Well, we all know what happens, the baby is found by the Pharaoh's daughter, and she wanted him for her own, so she had Moses sister go get their mother to nurse him until he was at an age to be taken...and the mother got paid to nurse her own child...LOL!!! I just think that is great!

Moses was adopted by Pharaoh's daughter and he grew to be used by GOD to set the captives free from Egypt.

Wow! I wonder what GOD has in store for my children. What exciting things they will do in the name of GOD! I am so excited!!!!

It starts out first by trust...trusting in the ONE and ONLY TRUE LIVING GOD, who is waiting and ready to forgive sins of any who will cry out to HIM. If you have burdens, lay them in the basket and send them down the river of forgiveness for GOD to take care of. GO ahead, lay them down, and let GOD give you rest. Then watch out, there is always an adventure when you serve the LORD.

Whoever says that being a Christian is boring, certainly has never been a Christian!!! LOL!! I am not sure if any of this makes sense to you all, but it is what is on my heart at this moment. LOL!!

GOD Bless America

There is no GOD?

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I was on a Christian forum some time ago, and came across the topic of "How tiring it is to talk to Atheists." I know it can be a little draining at times when talking to an argumentative atheist, but remember what JESUS said, " FATHER forgive them for they do not know what they do." Also, remember what the BIBLE says, "Apart from the SPIRIT they will not understand the things of the SPIRIT. " So, of course they are going to behave, act, and talk like that. They have been world-washed and do not understand the things of GOD.

First off, they will always say, " There is no GOD." That is an absolute statement. For an absolute statement to be true, one must be omniscient. ( having complete or unlimited knowledge, awareness, or understanding; perceiving all things.) One must know how many hairs are upon every head, every thought of every human, every detail of history, every atom within every rock... nothing is hidden from ones eyes... one must know the intimate details of the secret love-life of the fleas on the back of the black cat of Napoleons' great grandmother. To make the absolute statement, " There is no GOD," One must have absolute knowledge that there isn't one.

I do believe that some Christians treat atheists like they have the black plague. Non-Believers just need someone to tell them LOVINGLY about the GOD who is RIGHTEOUS, JUST, PERFECT and HOLY. HE and HE alone is the only perfect being. GOD being perfect can not be around sin. When Adam and Eve sinned it infected the flesh of all of mankind with the curse of sin, separating them, and all mankind from GOD. Now, we are all born sinners and separated from GOD, but GOD executed HIS plan ( through HIS SON) for the redemption of man.

If one was to be very honest with oneself and answer these questions... Have you ever told a lie? What are you if you tell a lie? A liar. Have you ever stole anything? Regardless of the value of the item or if you were young when you stole it. What are you called if you steal? A thief. Have you ever looked upon another to lust after them? JESUS says that whoever looks upon a person to lust after them has committed adultery with them already in their heart. ( This covers all sexual sin.) Have you ever used GOD's name as a curse word or used it irreverently? That is blasphemy. That is taking the ONE who has given you sight, hearing and life and you use HIS name as a form of a curse word to show disgust. Is this you? Do you see yourself as a good person next to GOD's perfect standard? Though I have not mentioned all the commandments, the WORD says that if you are guilty of one you are guilty of breaking them all.

I , myself am guilty of them all. Actually, I have broken all of the Ten Commandments. I was facing the "Judgement of GOD and on my way to the "Lake of Fire". ( A very real place that you do not want to go to.) I had heard about JESUS before and thought that as long as I would say, "I am sorry", I would go to HEAVEN. I was wrong.

It is like this... a person has committed a crime of rape and stands before the judge and the judge asks, " you stand here guilty of this crime, do you have anything to say?" Then the person says, " Judge, I am so sorry for raping that poor girl, I will not do it again, please can you just show mercy and let me go? One, the person should be sorry for committing a horrible act against another person, and two, if the judge is a good judge, whether the person is truly sorry or not the crime needs to be punished, and the good judge will not let the person go, but execute justice because he is bound by law.

GOD is a good judge and HE has to punish sin.(crimes against GOD' which is breaking HIS HOLY STANDARD or Ten Commandments) HE sees us all through HIS HOLY STANDARD and we all fall short of it. Romans 3:23 says, The wages of sin is death. But it does not stop there, for Romans 6:23 also tells us that eternal life is through JESUS CHRIST our LORD, and SAVIOR. JESUS who was and has always been, had left HIS KINGDOM (John 1:1,14) to come to the world HE created, to be a teacher to man ,whom HE also created. Showing us the way, and ultimately death on the cross to save us.

What do we need saved from? We need saved from the wrath to come. There will be a judgement day and if we are all in our sin(no atonement) we will go to the lake of fire.

What happened was this... GOD became a man in the person of JESUS CHRIST, and eventually was nailed to and died upon the cross taking the sins of the whole world on HIMSELF. We sin and we deserve death, but HE came and took it for us. So, what happened that day on the Cross was a legal transaction. We committed a crime or crimes against GOD and JESUS paid our fine for us. HE stepped into the courtroom of forever and paid our fine in HIS life's blood.

You see, it is not about us being sorry, it is about the fine that was paid, therfore, the law would not have no more hold on us. That is how much HE loves us!!! All you have to do to be saved is... repent of your sin, ( tell GOD with your mouth that you believe that are a sinner and need HIM to forgive you) then turn away from your sin and live a life that is pleasing to HIM. Read the BIBLE daily to understand HIS WILL and PURPOSE for your life.

HE is ready to hear from you!

I pray for all who do not believe. Please repent and come to know GOD before you take your final breath here on earth, and since no one knows when our last day on earth will be, the BIBLE says that today is the day of salvation!!!

Also, a last note! No matter how tired and weary we become, we need to always let the HOLY SPIRIT lead. Ask GOD to give us strength to stay true to witnessing. We never know who is ready to trust in THE SAVIOR.

LORD, I pray that you will send at least one person ( I truly pray for many) to read this message, and accept eternal life which YOU offer to everyone who will call on YOU.
AMEN

GOD Bless You!

The Wheat and the Tares

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I wrote this article earlier in the year, but felt led to post it again. I hope it speaks to someone. GOD bless you all!

I was reading in the BIBLE about the wheat and the tares in Matthew 13:24-30...Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tares?
He said unto them, An enemy hath done this, The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

This parable is about true and false believers working along side one another. See how JESUS said they grow up together. Obviously, the wheat in the parable are the saved children of GOD, but let's look at the tares.

Tares, or Lolium Temulentum, are typically known as a Darnel or Cockle. It usually grows in the same production zones as wheat and is considered a weed. The similarity between these two plants is so close in resemblance, that in some regions cockle is referred to as "false wheat." It bears close resemblance to wheat until the ear appears. The ears on the real wheat become so heavy it causes the plant to droop, but the "false wheat", whose ears are light, stands up straight.

Also according to the encyclopedia, Tares parasite wheat fields. A parasite is an organism that grows, feeds, and is sheltered on or in a different organism while contributing nothing to the survival of its host. One of the characteristics of the tares are the making of one feel poisoned with drunkenness.

GOD establishes HIS Church and builds up HIS body of believers, and satan sends his people among the true believers to try to infect the Church with his poison. The BIBLE also says we will be able to decipher if someone is a true Christian by the good fruit they bear. (Luke 6:43) As the "false wheat" will give itself away eventually by the ears not drooping down, the false converts will eventually give themselves away, some may not, but a majority will. How? By their lifestyles.

Have you ever seen someone in your Church go on on Sunday and praise GOD with their mouths and actions, to leave and live an opposite life?

It was no different with JESUS. JESUS had a false disciple among HIM. Judas was a disciple to JESUS, made relationships with the other disciples, and they had no idea he was stealing from the offering. (John 12:6) No one would have expected Judas as being a traitor. The scripture says in Matthew 26:21,22, And as they did eat, HE said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, LORD, is it I? They had no idea Judas was not really one of them, so seeing bad fruit in a non-believer may not aways be apparent, but it is something we should not really be looking for either.

We are to do our FATHER's will and love everyone, and if you see someone whom you think could be a false believer, pray about it and then approach him/her LOVINGLY about their sin condition. Get them to understand that you care enough about their eternal life to talk to them about it. Always show them what the scripture says about the subject and let the HOLY SPIRIT do the rest. Never input your opinion, only GOD's WORD. GOD's WORD never returns void.

After studying a bit on satanism, I found that this cult trains people to go into Christian Churches to tear them apart. Girls are taught to go and seduce the men, especially the pastor. If satan can tear down the leader then he can divide and conquer the Church. If not, they are trained to cause divorce within the Church. They also teach young girls that it is acceptable to dress provocatively to cause lusting to weaken the men and boys. The cult teaches their women to go into BIBLE study leader positions to mislead the ladies into thinking that their busyness within the Church is for GOD, but the things being done are not even what GOD said to do. It is always so subtle, that it is not noticeable until the damage has been done.

I knew a Church that had a female from the satanic cult try to seduce the pastor, he refused her, and he saw through her charade, and called her out in front of the congregation that following Sunday, and she laughed very loud on the way out as she left. She then went to another Church and did the same thing, but that time she succeeded. The two pastors were friends and that is how the first pastor found out.

The cult teaches the men to go into leadership positions to make changes on the board that would tear down the Church instead of build it up. The suggestions are so subtle that it causes no alarm to the other board members. For example, (Cult member talking)"Hey, I noticed that no one is really coming to Wednesday night prayer time, I bet we could get folks to come if we implement a Christian drama class in its place or replace it with a Wednesday night fellowship dinner." If no one challenges him, he will more than likely get his way. Once prayer is removed, it is not long until the Church will fail. This has happened!

Whoever the non-believer is, they need JESUS. I believe that is the reason GOD does not want to uproot them before harvest, some will be saved, but the scripture is clear what happens to the tares. Some say that the Tares are Tares and they will always be false wheat, but with our GOD all things are possible, HE wants all to come to HIM and be saved.

Remember, do not go around and look for the non-believers to judge them, but love everyone as they are your heavenly family. This is written only to warn of the witnessing need within the Church. Only approach someone if you truly believe they are not saved, because sometimes it is just Biblical ignorance on their part. GOD will separate the wheat and tares... in HIS time.

GOD's Army Knife

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

The Shoe Box...Funny!

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I felt led to share this story... In JESUS NAME!!! LOL!!! Sister's this is wisdom here! I hope we all can recall this story the next time we feel a "Heated Discussion" coming on. LOL!! GOD bless you all!! Enjoy!

A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years.
They had shared everything. They had talked about everything.
They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little
old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she had
cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.



For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but
one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said
She would not recover.

In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took
down the shoe box and took it to his wife's bedside.
She agreed that it was time that he should know what was
in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls
and a stack of money totaling $95,000.

He asked her about the contents. 'When we were to be married,'
She said, 'my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage
was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you,
I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.'
The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two
recious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two
times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with
Happiness.

'Honey,' he said, 'that explains the doll, but what about all of this money?
Where did it come from?'

'Oh,' she said, 'that's the money I made from selling the dolls.'


A Prayer.......
Dear Lord, I pray for Wisdom to understand my man;
Love to forgive him, and Patience for his moods.
Because Lord, if I pray for Strength,
I'll beat him to death, because I don't have time to crochet.

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

Friends, my head is in so much pain because of my sinus infection. This is the worst one I have ever had. The antibiotics are not working yet. Please pray for me, I really need to feel better. Thank you, I appreciate you.

My video choice for tonight is about the song "It Is Well With My Soul". This song touched my heart years ago when I was dealing with all my miscarriages. The writer of the song, Horatio Spafford, lost so much in his life including his children, yet, he felt moved in heart to tell the LORD, "It Is Well With My Soul". He knew his SAVIOR and trusted only in HIM.

May we all have as much faith in our GOD and FATHER, to say during our difficult times..."IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL".

Please watch and be blessed!

Live Dangerously!!

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

Living dangerous for GOD is stepping past the fear the world produces, taking the light of JESUS and shining HIM into our very dark world. We are to take the "Good News or Gospel" to the unsaved, and when we step out in faith to do so, we put ourselves on the front lines of this huge spiritual battle. I encourage you all to place your faith in CHRIST, put the ARMOR of GOD on, and be counted in the good fight of faith. Is it dangerous? Yes, but GOD has asked us to take the message to every person in the whole world. Where does GOD say that? In Mark 16:15...

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I am nursing a sinus infection tonight, so I will be brief and leave you with this quote from an unknown author...

"Be the kind of Christian that when you wake up in the morning and your feet hit the floor, the devil screams, 'NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!'"

GOD bless you! :-D

Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you from our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.

I am so proud of my husband! He is my hero! Today he was promoted to Staff Sergeant! Usually a superior would pin him, but today our family was able to help out.

Our daughter Alyssa, took off his old rank, then I pinned him with his new rank, then our son Brandon came and punched him in the chest. Punching in the chest after pinning on new rank is an Army tradition, and Brandon was too happy to accommodate his daddy on that one...LOL!!! He was able to punch his dad without getting in trouble...LOL!

I am so thankful to GOD for giving me a wonderful husband, and a wonderful dad to our kids. We are truly blessed! I love you GOD!!!

Here is the video of my hero receiving his new rank. It was very windy today outside NATO headquarters here in Belgium, so excuse the audio.
