Do What the Master Has Called You To Do

I shared this post this morning with a group thread I admin , and right after I did, I suddenly felt that HS “nudge” to share it far and wide, so here it is, emojis and all! We do not know how many more days we each have left here (read Psalm 90), and we should try and be mindful of that (Memento Mori). Since we have no idea when our last day will be here on Earth, we should live like today IS our last day, and do and say for the Lord ALL that we can, to honor Him, His Word, and WALK that walk of FAITH He has called us to. We each have a job to do, so let’s just DO IT, for HIM, for all of humanity, and for the sake of their precious souls. Let’s be BOLD, be LOVING, be TRUTHFUL, and be the GOOD SERVANT of our MASTER, the LORD Jesus Christ.

🙄Let me say something really quick: I know that I speak about a lot of “negative” things in this world; most people do not want to hear it, and would rather concentrate on the “postive vibes” only. Well—that’s not telling the truth and the reality of the matter. I’m🙁sorry if what I report here, or share with you is not always 🌞and 🌈 and 🦄; I wish it could be—I really do, but far too long the world has been on the “bread and circuses” plan, not seeing what REALLY has been going on in the background. Actually🤔some of it was right in our faces☹️, and we STILL were 🙉🙊and 🙈to it all.

I know I was, when I was between 22-25 years old. The Lord tried so hard to get me to SEE it, and realize how evil this world was, in order for me to take up the role He had for me😕, but😣I rejected it, at least most of the “hard” stuff—until 6 years ago. Oh, 🙄I’d mention this or that to people back then, especially family, and I’d get 🙄eye rolls and 🤯shocked looks, and before you know it, 😒they’d corner me and tell me to 🤫 shush about those things—that they weren’t as real as I thought they were. 😣

So for the sake of having RELATIONSHIPS, whether family or friends, I 🤐zipped the lip on most of it, and kept it to myself.

BUT NO MORE. For the last six years, I have let it ALL out—both good, bad, sensitive to the ears—whatever I have been told to share with people by the Lord, I have done it. The result? I’ve lost many, even some of my closest family members, who have “distanced” themselves from me😞, which has broken my heart💔 all because of speaking the TRUTH. I know some may think I go “too far”, but the Lord Jesus did not think that when He hung on the Cross for us; NOTHING was “too far” for Him to do—He just wanted to make a way back for us to the Father. And if telling the truth, and speaking it out to all, having most reject what He said, was the way to do it, knowing just a FRACTION of the people would accept Him, well—He thought it was the best way. And so do I, His servant. Hence the reason why I follow in my Master’s footsteps.

Why shouldn’t😐we then, do the same😕? Take that chance—that same “risk” that the LORD did—tell the truth LOVINGLY, as it is written—“speak the truth in love” (Eph. 4:15), and let God do the rest. IF they respond positively, you may have helped win a soul to Christ, and will see them in Eternity. If they do NOT, and then end up rejecting YOU, remember what Jesus said, “If the world hates you, remember it hated Me first” (Jn. 15:18). They will most likely end up in perdition😖😣, but at least your hands will be clean (Ez. 3:20-21). You have done what the Lord wanted you to do, and He will honor you for obeying His voice, and NOT the voice of the world (or your family, friends, etc. ).

So GO, and do likewise—make the Triune Godhead proud and honor Him by sharing His WORD on your social media pages; let HIM “do the talking” through His Word, but make sure you DO IT. And 🤨if someone tells you that they do NOT like what you are putting out there😒, tell them that both you AND they will be answering to a MUCH Higher Authority ✡️📖✝️ One Day. 😉🙂 And bid them farewell, pray for them, and keep moving FORWARD in your FAITH, even IF you “lose” them in the process. It is written, “The servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him” (Jn. 13:16). The verse before that (15) is what I will end this with: “I have set you an example so that you should do as I have done for you.”📖✝️

Even a Pagan King Knew The LORD Was With Ezra

Ezra the scribe sought the Lord to do His will. He studied, prayed, memorized His Word, and then taught it to the people. Even the Persian king Artaxerxes recognized the Spirit of God within Ezra, and decreed that what Ezra needed for his people, it should be done. Also, that Ezra should set magistrates and judges over the people, and he himself teach the people what they do not know (Ez 7:21, 25).

We would do very well to read the life of Ezra, and follow his lead in how he spent time getting to know the LORD God, reading and studying His Word, praying, and then taking the Word of God to the people, to teach and preach it to them.

Having the Word of God in your mind and heart (Ps. 119:9-11) is a very good thing these days. It is what keeps me in perfect peace (Is. 26:3), even during such evil days as we are living in.

When the enemy tries to get a foothold in my life, I quickly rebuke the evil ones with Scripture I have memorized, or go to the Word and start speaking it out, to extinguish the fiery darts (Eph. 6:16) that the enemy shoots onto the battlefield (my mind).

Yes, the hand of God can work for good in all souls that allow the Triune Godhead into their lives.

If one does not have the Spirit of God living and working in them, then as it is written, “the wrath of God abides in him” (Jn. 3:36).

Decide for yourself just who you will serve in this life (Joshua 24:15); for it WILL determine where you end up in Eternity.

He WILL Return Once Again FROM His Place

“And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken UP; and a CLOUD received them out of their sight.
And while they looked steadfastly toward Heaven AS HE WENT UP, behold two men stood by in white apparel;
Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into Heaven? THIS SAME JESUS, which is TAKEN UP FROM YOU into Heaven,
SHALL SO COME IN LIKE MANNER as you have seen Him go into Heaven.”
Acts 1:9-11

(The Apostle John writes)
“And I saw Heaven opened, and behold a White Horse; and HE that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He does judge and make war.
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself.
And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name is called THE WORD OF GOD.
And the armies which were in Heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
And out of His mouth goes a sharp SWORD, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
And He has on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, “KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”
Revelation 19:11-16

He Hears All, Sees All, KNOWS All—Both Good and Evil, and Will JUDGE ALL

Artist unknown

“The LORD looks down from Heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God” (Ps. 14:2).

Pray for every inhabitant on the face of the Earth, that they may take a knee NOW, while they still have breath in their lungs, and acknowledge the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior, Lord, King, and Master, before it is too late (Phil. 2:9-11).

If anyone has cried over the sins and evils that both mankind and demon have done, it is the LORD God, and His Son. The Holy Spirit has grieved like no other, to see this world decline and become like those evil creatures chained in Tartarus, awaiting their Day of Judgment (2 Pet. 2:4-10; Jude 1:6-7).

But until That Day arrives;
Until the Lord finishes what He has started so long ago,
EVERY person who still has breath in them,
STILL has an opportunity to
REPENT, and ask Him for forgiveness.
He will gladly give it to all those who cry out to Him (Ps. 18:6; 34:6,17).

For those who refuse,
There is a place where they will go for all eternity;
It was NEVER meant for mankind, but only for Satan and all those angelic spirits who rebelled against their Master so long ago (Is. 66:22-24; Dan. 12:1-2; Matt. 25:31-46; 2 Thess. 1:5-10; Rev. 14:9-11; 20:11-15).

The LORD is Just. He must punish the wicked ones of mankind along with those angelic creatures.

That Day is coming…SOON.
NO ONE knows that Day or Hour, but the Father Himself (Matt. 24:36).

Will YOU be ready when He calls His children HOME to Himself?
Will YOU escape the Time of His Wrath upon the Earth that is yet to come (Ps. 110:5; Is. 13:6; Jer. 30:7; Joel 2:11; Rev. 6:17)?

The only person that can answer that question, and will be held RESPONSIBLE for what happens to their ETERNAL state,
Is YOU.

Cry out to the LORD now; SEEK His Face; CALL upon His name.
HE WILL ANSWER YOU (Jer. 33:3; Ps. 17:6; Ps. 20:6; Zech. 10:6; Is. 30:19).

“Answer me quickly, O LORD; my spirit fails. Do not hide Your face from me, or I will be like those who descend into the Pit” (Ps. 143:7).

Do not wait for “tomorrow”; there might not be one.

A Warning to REPENT, or Be JUDGED

This may have been written years ago in the days of Jeremiah, but the Word of the LORD still stands as true today as it did then.

His Word does not “expire”; it does not just speak to a certain people in a certain place for a certain time due certain circumstances that were going on…

No, God’s Words and Warnings still ring out loud and clear for the people of THIS century, and EVERY nation that exists today.

The United States of America has been given many blessings by the Lord God Almighty, and in the past century, this nation has slowly turned its face away from the LORD God, and turned toward false gods and idols.

The United States of America, and other nations as well, must REPENT before the LORD God NOW-IMMEDIATELY, before He ushers in a time of tribulation and wrath so fierce, hardly anyone will survive through it.

Mankind has allowed himself to be deceived by the father of lies, Satan, and his horde of demons to steal, kill, and destroy every nation and corrupt every leader possible, in order to bring those countries to ruin, and their people into demonic bondage.

The only way that The United States and the other nations will have a chance to survive, is for them to REPENT, wholeheartedly turn back toward Him and ask the LORD God to heal their nation.

If this is not done, and mankind thinks he has no need for God, he WILL be destroyed, but not before the LORD rescues His people out of the WRATH that is to come.

REPENT, or be DESTROYED.
THAT is your FREE WILL choice, America, and all other nations that are under the wrath of the Almighty.

I warn you again—-REPENT, or face JUDGMENT.

Another New Book Available at Amazon!!

My new illustrated devotional is now LIVE on Amazon! I used a beautiful picture for the cover, and you will find many other colorful pictures with Scriptures and inspirational quotes on each of the pages with the devotionals.

The book can be purchased through Amazon in either hardcover, paperback, or Kindle format.

This book would make a beautiful gift for someone, and the devotionals are no more than a 5-10 minute read. It is a great way to start your day, during a mid-day break, or before you settle in for the night, to read a little bit of Scripture, then meditate and pray on it.

I hope you will check it out! I do also have the first of my three book series, “Walking in the Dark with FAITH” for sale. The 12-month devotional is based off of my first year and a half of my faith journey, with Scripture verses that stood and spoke out to me during that time. Just look up the above mentioned title and “12 Month Devotional” to find it.

I am trying to hopefully finish the second of my three-book faith journey series (the subtitle will be, “A Season of Trials, Temptations and (Many!) Tears”), before the end of this month, especially before my fall grad classes start again. Once they do, that takes up most of my time and energy. I will make another post when the book is available.

Thank you so much in advance if you do go ahead and purchase any of my books; right now, it is my only income because of the amount of schoolwork I have to endure. But I realize the more I write, the more I am enjoying it. It definitely is proving to be something the Lord wanted me to do all along—I just did not initially think I had it in me to write a book, and now I just completed my third one; amazing what a person can do when they allow the Spirit to move within them and use the gifts that He gives to us. Not only does it end up blessing me and honoring Him, but it also blesses those who read the books and get inspired and encouraged by them. God bless!

No Matter the Losses Here, Your Eternal Gain is Jesus!

BUT, realize when you do all these things, it IS for certain that you will:
Lose friends like Jesus did.
Lose family members like Jesus did.
Have people ignore you like they did to Jesus.
Have those who were the closest to you, as best friends, even, no longer want to talk to you or see you anymore, like what they did to Jesus (that actually happened to Joseph and Mary, His parents, as well).
Have people hate you for no reason at all, like they hated Jesus.
Have people ostracize you, like they did Jesus.
Have people tell lies about you, like they did to Jesus.
Have some want to even harm you or kill you, like how they wanted to do to Jesus.
Have some put curses on you, like they did with Jesus.
Have people not include you in family gatherings anymore, because your love for Jesus.
Have people try to silence you because of your love for Jesus.

The devil moves people to see you as their enemy, because you put God and His Word first in your life, as Jesus did.
They will persecute you, because they persecuted Jesus.

No matter how many times you reach out,
No matter how many times you try to let them know you still love them,
No matter how many times you tell them you miss them and want to stay in touch with them,
No matter how successful and accomplished you can be-if you love Jesus, most will have hardly anything to do with you.

But did not Jesus tell us that would all happen? He did.
Is it still worth following Him, then, to lose all those who would rather not have anything to do with you, because of your love for the Lord Jesus, His Father, and the Holy Spirit?
Is it REALLY all worth it?

YES, IT IS.

I do not like it; it breaks my heart that loved ones have nothing to do with me anymore. And if you are a follower of Christ, it WILL happen to you too.

BUT I will STILL go on, loving, caring, praying, forgiving, being patient with and serving others, even if while I’m here on this Earth, I do not see the “fruit” of my labors. I will see them fulfilled One Day, when my Lord soon calls me Home, and honestly, that is really all that matters.

Jesus IS all that matters to me.

Because as HE hung on that Cross, I was ALL that MATTERED to HIM.

Allow the Word of God to be a CONSUMING FIRE In Your Life

Quote taken from The Catholic Company, “Your Morning Offering”

This is short and sweet, but as soon as I read today’s quote from the daily devotional I received in my inbox this morning, I knew I had to share it with everyone.

We, the Body of Christ = Church—NEED to have this fire kindled in our lives each and every day!

The days are coming, and actually are already here, that the people will long to hear the Word of the Lord. The enemy will do ANYTHING to keep us from hearing it by distracting us as much as possible, and also will keep us from having that relationship with the LORD God, and learning His Word.

Be a holy rebel—be the ONE that the devil hates, and allow God’s consuming fire to burn all that keeps you from getting closer to Him. Then allow Him to grow and mature you into the strong servant warrior of Christ you were meant to be!

Recognize This Season For What It Is

All that is happening, NEEDS to happen.
Please read not only this, but what is also written in the picture post, and look up the Scriptures for further understanding.
If you shut God out, it will be an eternal consequence that cannot be reversed.
You have questions—well, the Lord has the answers-many of them. He does not tell us everything, but enough to get us to recognize the “season” of the times.
And from being with Him all these decades, I can assure you from what I am seeing and hearing (mind you, I do not post most of the ugly vile events I see happening-FB and IG would black them out anyway), it is VERY NEAR “that time”. Here is another verse the Spirit is leading me to tell you:
“From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near.
So also, WHEN YOU SEE ALL THESE THINGS, you will know that HE is NEAR, right at the door” (Matthew 24:32-33).
Do you have eyes to see, and ears to hear? Then see and hear what is really going on. Go to the Lord Jesus, and tell Him you are scared. He already knows it; He just wants YOU to humbly come to HIM, and He WILL get you, and I, and all the others who have heeded His Word, through this, in the way He wills it to be.
He is waiting for you—for all of us—to trust in Him, and allow Him to do what needs to be done, in order to finally One Day, rid this world of its evil.
The evil one is, OUT OF SPITE, taking as many humans with him and the other evil spirits, into Hell and the Lake of Fire as he can.
He knows his “time” is very short. BUT, even he is only allowed to do what the Lord allows.
For those who still do not understand—
Satan and the demons, evil spirits, etc. are NOT in Hell. There are only certain ones either in the Pit, or, they are chained up in Tartarus. Satan (for reasons only 🙄God Himself knows) and the other evil spirits have been “allowed” to roam about, “seeking whom he may devour”(1 Peter 5:8).
BUT, as verse 9 says, we are to “Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood(body of Christ) throughout the world.”

TRUST in the Lord, beloved.🙏🏼✝️
