The Lord’s Prayer

Is the Lord’s Prayer first and foremost a prayer for spiritual power? When asked where the Kingdom of God was, Jesus replied that it is within us. So, when We pray, “Thy Kingdom come”, aren’t we really asking that God’s kingdom be established within us as Jesus said. And when we pray, “Thy will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven,” aren’t we praying that His love, forgiveness, and healing should be manifested through us to the rest of the world?

Jesus referred to bread as the word of God many times. So, when we pray, “give us this day our daily bread”, aren’t we asking for God’s word. Jesus prayed, “Sanctify them with your truth. Your word is truth.” We are, then, asking to be sanctified through His word.

Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,” is easy to understand. Jesus made it clear many times that we could not be forgiven unless we forgave others, and in forgiving, then we are forgiven.

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,” seems plain enough. We are asking not to be tempted into sin, or delivered into Satan’s bondage.

Jesus said, “Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven and all these things will be added unto you.” I believe The Lord’s Prayer has all to do with obtaining all our spiritual needs from God, and when we achieve that, all our physical or earthly needs will be met.

Paul wrote that, “In the latter days, men will be holding on to a form of Godliness, but denying its true power.” I believe that the bulk of Christianity has been put off by the antics of those who want, but only pretend, to have the baptism of the Holy Spirit. For that reason many in Christianity shun anything spiritual, and only hold on to the promise of salvation.

I, too, believe that some people, in their quest for the spirit, simply pretend, in hopes that it will one day be real. But, I, also, know that you cannot enter into a spiritual relationship with God, without tears – tears of happiness, tears of shame, and tears of thanksgiving. Let all of Christianity, then, kneel before the throne of God in tears of praise for our Creator and our Redeemer. Let us all receive His spiritual power and blessings as He promised. And may the world be blessed by Him through us.

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.”

Our work for salvation

Some people believe that once they’ve confessed their belief in Jesus as the Son of God, they are irrevocably saved. If that is true why would Jesus teach us
Matthew 25:31“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the [c]holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

37“Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

41“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’

44“Then they also will answer [d]Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
His last words to us before His ascension was: “All power has been given to my in earth and in heaven. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all things that I have ordered you”
He never said, “sit back and watch me take care of everything.” We are his hands, his feet and his mouth. We have been ordered to work for the kingdom – not sit idly by resting on your laurels. The Apostle Paul wrote that the blood of no man was on his hands, meaning that he had never held back from preaching the gospel and preached it wherever he went and with whoever he met. We, too, have an obligation to our neighbor to bring them to salvation and keep them from the fires of hell. People’s lives depend on us

The eye of a needle

Most of us can be considered rich. Perhaps not a millionaire or a billionaire,but rich in possessions. We have toys, TV, radio, computers, cell phones, and computer games to keep our minds occupied at all times, leaving no time to consider or think about the important questions in life.Even if we attend church regularly, many of us allot one hour per week for God, and the rest of the week we concentrate on our jobs, families and toys. To the rest of the world we are considered rich.
Jesus said that “it was easier for a camel to enter through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven.” When his disciples asked who then could enter Heaven, Jesus replied that nothing is impossible with God.
We have been taught that “the eye of a needle” was an actual gate in the wall around Jerusalem, only about four feet tall. It is possible for a camel to go through the gate, except for one thing: Camels are stiff-necked, and even if they get on their knees, it is extremely difficult for the handler to get them to bow down or lower their head in order to fit through the gate. The rich man or woman is the same way: They rely on themselves and their possessions, and find it difficult to humble themselves or bow down to the Living God. The haughty posture of a camel will keep it from entering the gate, and the haughtiness of a person will keep them out of Heaven. Only through humility and exalting God will any of us be able to enter Heaven.
If we read the Bible and learn about the love that God has for us, and the sacrifices He has made for us in order to bring us salvation, we will love Him, and we will humbly thank Him. Learn of Him and enter in through the gate. He awaits you.
Blessings,Art

Abandon your child in a crisis?

Imagine life being a river. We all enter in at the same spot in that river, where the waters are relatively calm. As we travel down the river of life, we soon notice that the water is running faster and faster. We are approaching the teen age years and the water ahead becomes a rapids with large rocks looming out of the water. If we’re not careful, we may be dashed against one of these rocks, harming or even destroying our lives. Where do we turn to find a safe course through this maze of peril?
God chose our parents to bear us and teach and train us. The parents are His representatives. It is their duty to protect us, and to guide us, especially through these perilous times.
The misinformation media that has brought us our our left wing movement and our diminishing way of life, tells the parents that they should turn their children loose at the most critical and dangerous part of their lives. They tell them that sending their children away and cutting moral ties with them increases their self-reliance and independence. It, also, increases their chance of failure and destruction for the present time and their future. To abandon a child in their greatest need for strength and reliance, is the most inhumane thing a parent can do to their child. Even the most experienced and knowledgeable parent will find these rapids in the river of life dangerous and unforgiving, if precaution is not used.
A parent cannot relinquish their role as appointed by God. They must continue to teach and guide their children, especially through these dangerous times. They must give their children a chance at a future of satisfaction and fulfillment, and without risking death or permanent injury that diminishes that future.
Parents, do not relinquish your role to the misinformation media in order to appease it, at the cost of your children’s lives. Don’t run from your responsibilities. Stand up for your convictions, your morals, your God and your children’s lives. Stand up and be a hero to your child and to future generations. Help and guide them through these turbulent waters. Fulfill your duty.

Shame

I have avoided the MSM (main stream media) this year (2017)  because the true media was reporting that the MSM was extremely biased. Tonight, the 1st of Jan. 2018 I watched reruns of MSM’s attacks on President Trump. I thought what they were saying about Trump should have been said for 8 years against Obama. It was like a time warp. I could not believe that charges against Obama should have been saved up and used instead on Trump. How in the world do demented, twisted scum get on the main stream media. Has the MSM been completely taken over by communists, globalists and people who just want to destroy the greatest nation in history, simply to destroy? Or have the head honchos of the media been bribed?  Are they totally without shame?
Tonight’s revelation has taught me to appreciate Fox news more. It has changed my mind about thinking that Trump was simply a good man. I now believe that he is a giant of a man who is willing to face persecution from the MSM, the media, the entertainment industry, the deep state and the liberal left-wing politicians in order to fulfill the promises of God to the American people. He could have finished his life in quiet luxury, but instead he chose to save America and keep its’ people free. I now truly believe that Donald Trump has been ordained and anointed by God. Not since the founding fathers have we seen a man so dedicated to our God given freedom that allows us to grow, fulfill, and complete our lives in freedom and in Godly love for one another.
Donald Trump no longer has to prove himself to me. He has already shown me that I should have no fear in following him and supporting him. God has been good to us in 2017. He gave us Donald Trump, and he is making America great again. But shame on the main stream media.  Finally. Happy new year. It should be interesting.

Why?

If I love God with all my heart, but still sin, then why does God forgive me? The answer is that God’s ability to love is so much greater than my ability, that He can forgive what I can’t help. That is why I worship Him – not just His power – but His ability to love unconditionally and eternally. It is His acceptance of the fallible me that makes me feel loved and protected by the God who is called love and uses every aspect of it to create, control and renew all things, including me. Thank you Father. Amen

New Age Philosophies

I find it so sad that people are gullible enough to follow new-age gurus who pretend that there is no God, yet base their teachings and truths on the teachings that have been taught in the Bible since the beginning of time. If these teachings are not true, then their new-age philosophy means nothing. But if they are true, then why do they ignore the God that gave these truths to man?
In my book, “God, Reward and Punishment: Are they real?” I point out how these truths are based on one law, that states that whatever we want for another will be given to us. Yes, giving to another ensures our prosperity. Forgiving others ensures forgiveness for ourselves Loving others ensures that we will be loved. The list goes on, but all of these truths have been stated over and over again in the Bible. These are not new revelations leading to a new-age philosophy. It is the age-old teachings of God, to prepare His people for a happy and successful life.
We are all “mind, body and spirit”. We are not simply an intelligent piece of meat. We have a spirit, given by a God that wants to continue that connection with His people.
If people would disconnect from the cyber world, and rely on their own intelligence by reading and researching the Bible, they would be amazed at the wisdom and power contained therein. The choice is up to each individual: Follow the crowd like a bunch of lemmings, never to know real truth, or truly become an individual and discover for themselves that there is a God, eagerly waiting for the love and devotion, that He has for so long given them.
Are you a company-loving rodent, or are you a child of the living God?

Sanctification

John 17:17 “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” are the words prayed by Jesus.

Wikipedia describes the word as “Sanctification is the act or process of acquiring sanctity, of being made or becoming holy[1]. “Sanctity” is an ancient concept widespread among religions, a property of a thing or person sacred or set apart within the religion, from temple vessels to days of the week, to a human believer who achieves this state. To sanctify is literally “to set apart for special use or purpose”, figuratively “to make holy or sacred”, and etymologically from the Latin verb sanctificare which in turn is from sanctus “holy” and facere “to make”

To sanctify then is to “set apart”, to make “special”, to protect and to make safe. For a Christian, it is to be protected from Satan by the special status that we have with God through Jesus.
The Israelites in Egypt were told to paint the the blood of a sacrificial lamb on the door posts and above the door in order to protect them from the Angel of Death that would kill the first born in all of Egypt. God completed his plan for the redemption of mankind with His son as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of man. His blood cleanses us, makes us special with God and begins the sanctification process. Jesus asked His Father to sanctify us through truth, and that His word is truth. We are saved by our acceptance of Messiah’s death, burial and resurrection. We find sanctity and safety from Satan through God’s word. The more we learn of God and truth by studying His word (the Bible), the greater is our special place and protection in God. Are you sanctified? Do you need a place of sanctity and protection from the evil in the world? Security, protection, sanctity, forgiveness and redemption are found in the Bible – The word of God. “Jesus said, knock and the door will be opened unto you. Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find.”
If you never seek the treasure, you’ll never find it. If you seek God, He’ll make Himself known to you. All the treasures of Heaven will be yours, if you’ll seek, ask, and knock at the door. The one behind the door will welcome you as His child, and you will, at last, find Shalom.

A prayer for protection

Until Trump won the presidency and, thereby, brought out the the most vile and evil side of the Democratic party, I had no idea that America was being undermined and that our freedom and moral example for the world was about to be lost. 2016 was important, but 2020 is the most important race in history, not only for America, but for the world. God bless and protect America and the American people who still trust in Him, rely and depend on Him and are praying for His continued favor for America and its people. Thank you for hearing our plea, Father. AMEN

Proven Wisdom or A Rehash of Stupidity And Destruction

Proven Wisdom or A Rehash of Stupidity And Destruction

It simply amazes me that there are so many politicians who do not reverence God as the founding fathers did. They reject God’s wisdom, but expect wisdom to come from the feeble minds of twisted men. These politicians run their campaigns using catch-phrases that resemble wisdom. But by the time that they get to Washington they sound like a herd of braying jackasses, ready to be harnessed and led by their leader. They’re so busy hugging their personal tree that they can’t see the forest. In other words, they’re so wrapped up in their bureaucratic, nit-picking meddling that they can’t see the big picture.

When God brought the Israelites out of Egypt, they still thought like the slaves that they had been. In order to make them a strong self-governing nation He taught them the secrets to becoming the nation that He envisioned for them. God’s spiritual law dictated that whatever a person did to another, would be done to them. So, He taught them exalt and worship only Him, in order that God could exalt them as a nation. He taught them morality in order to bring them together in trust and to bring order to their nation. To put it another way, God taught the Israelites to “love God with all their hearts, mind, soul and strength; and to love each other as they love themselves.”
Romans 8:6 “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
God laid out the blue print 3500 years ago so that each person could become a strong and successful person; and so that all the people combined could become a strong and successful nation. The plan isn’t that difficult to understand. We, as a people, must stop believing the lies of Satan, and begin trusting God. Sunday is not a day for recreation, but a day for restoration. If this nation and the world has any chance at all, we must return to God, worship Him, renew our strength in Him and make His teachings our own.
Genius doesn’t make right. Look at Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Mao Tsetung etc. Only God is of pure heart. Only God loves us unconditionally. Only God knows all things. Trust only in Him who created us and loves us forever.
“God Is Love”
