Revelation 22

12 "And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.

14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

​16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star."

Something God has been putting on my heart now for some time is 21st Century Idolatry. If you are like I was, when you read about idolatry in the Bible, or hear about it, it sounds like something literally from Biblical times, worshipping statues and images, et cetera, not something that is happening in the 21st Century, not something relevant to my life. Certainly, not something that I do! The fact is that Biblical idolatry is not that different from 21st Century idolatry.

Roman 6:16 "Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

After all, Jesus warns us not to love this world or the things in it. And, further, "For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1 John 2:15-16 


What are we worshipping or idolizing in our daily lives? What are we watching on television, or listening to on the radio? Witchcraft, sorcery, magic, enchanting, fornication, sexual immorality, spiritual wickedness.

Galatians 5


19 "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."

Isaiah 47

12 "Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.

13 Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.

14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it."

Revelation 9

20 "And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts."

I know many of you are saying to yourselves, It's just a movie, or just a TV show, just a poster, just a t-shirt, just a book. I too said those things, but to the demons they were created to represent, they will always be a sound of victory against God and His children.

Much the same as the popular saying, You are what you eat, it is also true that, You are what you watch. You are what you read. You are what you listen to. You are that with which you fill your soul.


With what do you fill your soul? Fill it with God's Love.

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Philippians 4:8


We are what we let into our souls! Do we let in darkness, or do we let in light? And, if the light in us is darkness, how great is that darkness?

Matthew 6

22 "The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!"

If your eye be single, focused on God, your whole body shall be full of light. Turn off the television! Read the Bible. Listen to Christian music. Bring into captivity even your very thoughts to the obedience of Christ. 1 Corinthians 10:5

Fill your soul with God.

Just after His resurrection, before He ascended to the Father's right hand, Jesus prayed for God to send us the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost, all one and the same Spirit. So, after accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior, we receive the Spirit of Truth, which guides our path towards righteousness. Man still has free will, but through believing in Jesus, we receive Faith, which leads to obedience to God.

Galatians 5

22 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another."

There is only One God man should be worshipping. 
"Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." Matthew 4:10 

Only One God who can provide miracles, and "wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:Acts 2:19

Only One God who will judge the earth. He comes quickly and His reward is with Him. Revelation 22:12. Many will say to me in that day, Lord Lord. . . "
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." Matthew 7:22-23

Will Jesus know you in that day? Does He know you to-day? Accept Jesus today, believe in Him, and obey God. 

God wants all men to be saved. 2 Peter 3:9 "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 

Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

<![CDATA[SAMSON AND DELILAH]]>Tue, 30 May 2023 04:00:00 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/samson-and-delilah
Above Image: 1st Century mosaic showing a firebrand tied between two fox's tails.

"
And Samson went and caught three hundred foxes, and took firebrands, and turned tail to tail, and put a firebrand in the midst between two tails." Judges 15:4-5
The Birth of Samson

​Judges 13

1
"And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the Lord; and the Lord delivered them into the hand of the Philistines forty years.

And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not.

And the angel of the Lord appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son.

Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing:

For, lo, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and no razor shall come on his head: for the child shall be a Nazarite unto God from the womb: and he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines."

What is a "Nazarite unto God"? From biblestudy.org

​Quote: "Those desiring to take the vow of a Nazarite had to be willing to sacrifice certain aspects of their life for the duration of their pledge. They had to abstain entirely from wine or drinking anything with alcohol in it (Numbers 6:3, see also Amos 2:12). In fact, those who decided to dedicate themselves to God as a Nazarite had to abstain from eating any grapes or any product made from them like juice, raisins and so on.

"Those who were under the vow could not shave any hair on their head (e.g. beard, mustache, eyebrows - Numbers 6:5, Judges 13:5, 16:17). This meant that those who promised to serve God in such a way were easily recognizable to other people, as they had long hair, bushy eyebrows, a long unkempt beard, etc.

A Nazarite was not permitted to come near a corpse, even if it was from a close family member, so that they would not be rendered unclean (Numbers 6:6 - 7)." End quote.


Samson Kills a Lion

When Samson was older, he killed a lion with his bare hands; he used no weapon.

"And the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he rent him [the lion] as he would have rent a kid [goat], and he had nothing in his hand: but he told not his father or his mother what he had done." Judges 14:6

It is significant that the scripture tells us he had nothing in his hand to kill the lion, so he killed it with his bare hands, meaning he touched a carcass, an unclean thing, an abomination.

It is also significant that it tells us specifically that he withheld the information from his parents, who would surely have made him perform the customary rituals for cleansing after touching a dead animal.

Later, Samson saw the same lion he had killed previously, and there was a beehive in the carcass. Samson scooped up the honey and ate it, and gave it to his mother and father to eat, and they ate it, being unaware that it came from a dead animal's body.

"Or, if a soul touch any unclean thing, whether it be a carcase . . . and if it be hidden from him; he also shall be unclean, and guilty."

Did Samson break his vow, and also cause his mother and father to sin as well? Clearly, they never repented of this sin, or performed the customary rituals to cleanse themselves, as is borne out by the subsequent life and death of Samson. 

BLESSINGS AND CURSES

Samson's first wife, a Philistine, was given away by his father-in-law to his friend. This enraged Samson, who burned down the Philistine corn (see image of 1st Century mosaic above). The Philistines retaliated by burning down Samson's wife and her family.

Samson then judged the Israelites for some 20 years, before marrying Delilah, who tricked him for eleven hundred shekels of silver from each of the kings, who wanted to know the secret of Samson's strength so they could defeat him. Samson finally told Delilah his secret, that a razor had never touched his head; she told the kings, and then she let them shave Samson's head, while he was asleep on her lap.

Samson became weak, and the Philistines captured him, put out both of his eyes, and put him in prison as a grinder, one who pushes the grinding or mill stones. Eventually, Samson brought down the building on the Philistine's heads. Quote: "
He perished in the last terrible destruction he brought upon his enemies. So the dead which he slew at his death were more [in social and political importance-the elite of the people] than they which he slew in his life. Straining all his nerves, he bowed: As with the force of winds and waters pent, When mountains tremble, those two massy pillars, with horrible convulsion to and fro he tugged, he shook, till down they came, and drew the whole roof after them, with burst of thunder upon the heads of all who sat beneath, Lords, ladies, captains, counsellors, or priests, their choice nobility and flower." End Quote. From kingjamesbibleonline.org.

Can you see how Samson was cursed as soon as he disobeyed the angel of the LORD, who represents God's Will?

God's Word is alive and active and powerful, and it is for us, to receive His blessings! Read it, meditate on it day and night, get it down on the inside of you, into your heart, so that the wiles of the devil cannot not take away your blessings. The devil can test us all day, every day, and if he sees a weakness in us, he will, a weakness in our armor, where God's Word is not protecting us.

Psalm 119:11 says it best: "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee."

I mean, it cannot be any clearer than that. Hide God's Word in your heart so that you do not sin against Him. Make sure that when the devil tests you, your first response is from God, righteous, morally upright, with love, mercy and compassion for all mankind, especially your brothers and sisters in Christ. 

Remember, Jesus said Love your neighbor as yourself Matthew 22:39, and Love not the world neither the things in it at 1 John 2:

15 "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."

He that does the will of God, obeys God, and is blessed.

There is redemption through the blood of Jesus Christ. Do not be like Samson, Cain, and so many others in the Bible. Many received blessings, great blessings, and also received curses for their disobedience.

Samson was blessed with strength, but he did not obey God, and he was greatly cursed as well.

Repent. Jesus said, "Change your hearts, and show by the way you live that you have changed." Matthew 3:8

Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

<![CDATA[THE MAN AND THE STICKS]]>Sun, 28 May 2023 16:21:38 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-man-and-the-sticks
1 Corinthians 10:11 ​"Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."
This morning, the meaning of Numbers 15:32-36 below became clear to me. I have to admit that this Scripture has always bugged me. Why would a God of love and light do such a thing?

I even told our Pastor at one point, "Not. My. God." God bless Pastor David. He has the patience of a saint (as we all should). Of course, I was missing the bigger picture, God's picture.

Numbers 15

32 "And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.

33 And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation.

34 And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him.

35 And the Lord said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp.

36 And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the Lord commanded Moses."

​We feel bad for one man (I know I did), because it seems that all he wanted to do was build a fire to cook food, but that is what our eyes see, the man's outward appearance. God looks at our hearts.


"But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart." 1 Samuel 16:7

Or as Jesus said at John 7:24, "
Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." In other words, judge on integrity and godliness.

This blog is not easy to write, but does that mean we should not write it, or speak the truth? The fact is, no matter what some church leaders are teaching their congregations, God never promises a good time for bad people: For o
ur God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:29

Remember Noah and the Ark (click for scripture), when only eight people remained to repopulate the earth? 

Or, Sodom and Gomorrah (click for scripture), when God destroyed the cities and everyone in them, because He could not find 10 righteous men, women or children among all of the inhabitants?

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, to day and for ever." ​Hebrews 13:8. And, although we are special, a chosen generation, we are not THAT special that God will overlook our flagrant, in-His-face sin. He will not.

1 Corinthians 10

​1 
"
Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;

And did all eat the same spiritual meat;

And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.

Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

11 Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."
But, they didn't have a book that warned them like we have. There is a darkness coming, a dark silence. Will you be on God's boat?

Repent, turn away from sin, and turn back to God. Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

<![CDATA[THE WAKE-UP CALL Part 2]]>Tue, 25 Apr 2023 11:14:59 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-wake-up-call-part-2EARTH'S GEOMAGNETIC STORM 

GOD'S WAKE-UP CALL
The above images are screenshots from the video below, and represent images of the geomagnetic storm that took place a couple of nights ago around the world.


"Yesterday, I wrote a blog titled, "The Wake-Up Call," which you can read by clicking here. This morning, I woke up to the above images/video of the skies around the world a couple of nights ago due to a geomagnetic storm​.

Clearly, this is part of God's wake-up call for the world.

Interestingly, these geomagnetic storms usually create primarily purple and green skies. What does God want us to know about this?

"And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:" Revelation 17:4

That sounds about right. That sounds like the earth, full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. "And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness." 1 John 5:19

What about the color green in God's Word?

"Ephraim shall say, What have I to do any more with idols? I have heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me is thy fruit found." Hosea 14:8

I am like a green fir tree. From me is your fruit found. How about you? Are you a green fir tree, with abundant fruit for God? Or, are you full of abominations and filthiness of fornication? "For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:" 1 Thessalonians 4:3.

Woe Unto the World: "Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!" Matthew 18:7

Many will say they believe, and Jesus will say to them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity:

Matthew 7

21 "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."

Why did Jesus tell those who said they were "doers" to depart from Him? Because they were liars. The pretenders say godly words for all to hear, and act to perform good deeds for all to see, but in secret, their hearts are far from God. Remember, God knows our hearts, and saying is not doing.  "(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.") Romans 2:13.  

Not the hearers, but the doers shall be justified.

We must walk the walk, not just talk the talk. We teach others how to lead righteous lives by leading a righteous life ourselves, by being obedient to God's Will, in holiness, righteousness and faith.

Since God awakened me in 2019, He has been pouring these words into my spirit, words of warning, warning His children to wake up before it is too late. We are alive at this very time for God's purpose, to serve His Will, and not our own. He has divided the earth between the righteous and the unrighteous, and His Word tells us that He will do this. "Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:" Luke 12:51.

See my blog titled, "The Line is Drawn" by clicking hereThere is no doubt right now upon which side of God's line each person  stands.

It is time to stand up and speak out against all unrighteousness. God gave us a mouth to speak for Him. Now is the time. Are you the green fir tree that produces good fruit for God, or "Are You a Lukewarm Christian" (click the link), who claims to be righteous but does not walk with God? Do you say, What can I do? What can one person do? Someone else will do it? Again, there is no one else. God's children are the "Light of the World" (click the link), and it is way passed time to act like it, and act upon it.

Speak out by binding all unrighteousness on earth, and letting loose God's Spirit and His Will:

Matthew 18

18 "Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

This is why it is more important than ever to find a church of like-minded Christians with which to fellowship and pray. If two of you shall agree on earth ... it shall be done for them... Matthew 18:19 above. Gather together in the Lord's name, and worship Him, praise Him, exalt Him, bind the demonic forces on earth, the evil intentions and evil imaginations of men, and let loose God's Will and God's Spirit on earth. Let loose a Spiritual Revival, which no demon from hell will be able to contain, and which the world will be unable to deny. Amen and Amen.

Cry out in prayer to God, the Father, by "
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;" 2 Corinthians 10:5

Speaking up for God does not mean fighting amongst ourselves, or using harsh words with each other. It means living a righteous life, loving each other, praying for the world, reading the Bible, worshipping and obeying God, believing in Jesus Christ, and serving the needy because you love them, not because you have to, or think you should.

Of course, it also means for some people, speaking up verbally, evangelizing, spreading God's Word unto all nations. "
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." Matthew 24:14

God knows our hearts, and on this we will be judged: " For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:37


For out of our heart proceeds forth our words and intentions, either evil or good: 

Matthew 15

18 "But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.

19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:"

Our pastor says that God's Word makes people either sad, mad or glad, and it is true.

People become sad, because God will not overlook sin, and people will die, more than likely people we know.

People get mad at God's Word, because they want to continue to live their unrighteous lives, and the Bible is telling them they will burn in fire for their sin.

And, of course, God's Word makes people glad, because they know Jesus Christ, and His love, and thereby have His Peace, and know that all things work to the good of those who love God. Romans 8:28. We will still be sad for the death around us, and sad that we did not do enough to save the people we love, to save our family, friends and neighbors, but we will be glad that we listened to God's Wake-Up Call.


Have you heard God's Wake-Up Call? Did you listen and act upon it? Hearing it will not save you; obeying Him will.

The time is at hand. Keep your eyes on the sky:  "
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." Luke 21:28

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

"But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever." Psalm 52:8

​Amen amen and amen. God bless you all. Wake Up!

<![CDATA[THE WAKE-UP CALL Part 1]]>Mon, 24 Apr 2023 12:33:43 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-wake-up-call-part-1


The Wake-Up Call. You can listen to Oral Roberts' 2004 prophecy about "The Wake-Up Call" in the first 20 minutes or so of the above video. In this video, Mr. Roberts says that God says that He is waking up people with signs and smoking vapor and blood. People will see the signs in the sky, and they will hear the signs in their ears, and the signs may be different for everyone. You may not see and hear the same thing someone else sees and hears, but it will be "The Wake Up Call" from God, nonetheless.

Having never seen this prophecy from Oral Roberts until this morning, I was once again amazed at God's Power, because this is exactly what happened to me in 2019. If you have not read my testimony about being awakened by God, you can see that by clicking here: "My Walk With God." 

In this testimony, I write that God woke me up in 2019, with a big storm that rolled in, black clouds, thunder and lightning. I was not a practicing Christian at the time. As as matter of fact, I was a denier. Oh, I believed in a higher power, but I was ignorant about God and Jesus. Sitting in my garage in 2019, however, watching that storm roll by, with booming thunder that echoed from one end of the universe to the other, and which literally shook me to my core, I knew at that time, that God was calling me, waking me up, shaking me, and I could no longer run from Him. That was my Wake-Up Call, of which Oral Roberts prophesied some 15 years earlier. God is good, and He will not forsake us!

It has been quite a journey since my wake-up call, and I have over 200 blogs/videos to prove it. Satan put me in a shell of darkness my whole life, but God broke the shell and brought me into His marvelous light. Peter 2:9


"Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:" Colossians 1:13

The times are changing. God is in our land, and because of this, the demonic forces are fighting a hundred times harder to blind and deafen God's children so that they cannot see and hear his wake-up call. Do not let Satan kill, steal and destroy your blessings and rewards. Submit yourselves to God, shake off the devil, resist him, and he will flee from you. James 4:7

No matter what it looks like in the world, remember, "And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness." 1 John 5:19. These are not just words. God's Word is alive and active. It looks like the world is wicked because the world is wicked, but we, who are awake, are of God. Wake up, wake up, wake up. God needs you. The world needs you.


Have you heard your wake-up call from God yet? Did you listen to it?

Prayers for each and everyone of you to not only see and hear God's wake-up call in your life, but to act upon it!

God bless you and Jesus loves you!

<![CDATA[SATANCON]]>Thu, 20 Apr 2023 11:29:49 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/satanconCalling All Prayer Warriors

Roar, like the Lion of Judah!

Revelation 5

5 "
And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.


And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth."

Jesus Christ, from the lamb who was slain to the conqueror who saves. He teaches us the Power of God's Love, God's Word, and Prayer. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Can you name one good thing about Satan? I can. One good thing is that if people believe in Satan, then they must also believe in God, because men that follow darkness hate the light. You cannot hate something unless you believe in it. If they believe in the light, then there is always hope that they will turn back to it:

John 3

19 "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God."

The Satanic Temple, with its international headquarters in Salem, Massachusetts, is holding its annual convention, called SatanCon, in Boston on April 28, 29 and 30, 2023. There will be satanic rituals, costumes, souvenirs, and toys for the children, all with a satanic theme. This is a sold-out event!

What can you do about it? What can one person do? For starters, pray fervently, without ceasing. I know as soon as some people read that sentence, they will stop reading this, or turn off the video. They think, Prayer is not for me. Prayer is for other people. My life has been just fine without prayer. God is not listening to me. That one time, I prayed, He did nothing to help me. He doesn't care about my prayers.

These are not words that God, the Father, has instilled in your heart. These are things that Satan has whispered in your ear: I can't. I'm not good enough. Someone else will do it.

There is no one else to do it. There is only us, God's Children, His Chosen, His Warriors. If you have ever thought about praying, but never started, don't know where to start, now is the time. God does not care about your grammar. He cares about your heart.

How To Pray Effectively (so God will hear your prayers)


Believe. Accept God, His Holy Spirit, and His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Cleanse your heart by repenting. How do you do that? Cry out to God. Let's bow our heads and pray for that right now. Say this prayer out loud, right now:

Heavenly Father, thank you for Your many blessings in my life. Thank you for forgiving me of my sin. I repent of the sin in my life, and I turn away from it. I surrender to you in full obedience. I believe with all my heart that Jesus Christ is Your only begotten Son, who died on the cross for my sins. I believe you raised Him from the dead, and that He now sits on the throne, at Your right hand, in heaven. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior, now and forever more. Amen.

Now that you have repented of the sin in your life and accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, open the communication airways with God right now by standing up, yes, actually do it, stand up, raise your hands in the air like you just don't care, and cry out: All Glory, Honor, Praise and Thanksgiving to God Most High, the Living God, the God of the Living, whatever you call Him, God, the Father. Again, keep your hands in the air and say, All Glory, All Honor, All Praise and All Thanksgiving to the One True God. Hallelujah. Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

And watch God's Holy Spirit come fill you with His glory right where you are standing.

Now that you have opened the communication airwaves, begin to pray. Pray for God's Spirit to rain down on SatanCon, filling the hearts, souls and minds of those attending the convention with the love of the Father and His son, Jesus Christ. Pray for a Spiritual revival right there at the convention, amongst the attendees, something that the news will have no choice but to report. Pray for an awakening of God's children, to be called out of the darkness into His marvellous light. 1 Peter 2:9

The biggest confusion for me about prayer was that I thought I just needed to pray for something one time, and, then, when God got around to it, and if it was His Will, He would answer my prayer. This is not how prayer works. Prayer is not a "one and done" deal. God's Word is alive, and His Word says, Pray without ceasing (without stopping). 1 Thessalonians 5:17. Pray until your prayers are answered.

To help combat these demonic forces ascending on Boston April 28 through 30, many churches are holding prayer vigils. Our church Living Waters Assembly of God, 450 Davis Street, Greenfield, MA, will be having a prayer and fasting vigil April 28 and April 29, 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., and April 30, the chapel will remain open after Sunday morning worship service as long as people are praying.


Fasting is another element of God's Power for men on earth. As Jesus tells us, there are some demons that can only be cast out with prayer and fasting. Matthew 17:21If you are taking medication, or have health concerns, please consult your doctors before fasting.

If you attend a church, encourage them to hold a prayer vigil for this important prayer call. If you do not attend church, find one that is having a prayer vigil, and attend it as much as you are able. If that is not for you, then pray at home, pray with your family and friends. Jesus says, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Matthew 18:20

We pray that you will join us in crushing Satan's head at SatanCon April 28 through 30. We do not need to wait until then to pray about it. Start praying now. Pray fervently (with intensity in spirit, enthusiastically). Pray without ceasing (without stopping).

They will try to hide the Spiritual Revival that will take place, but they will be unable to silence it. It will roar like the lion of Judah!

Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

God bless you all.

<![CDATA[THE TWO WITNESSES]]>Fri, 17 Mar 2023 04:00:00 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-two-witnesses
 
Is man ready for God's End Times? One of the biggest eye openers for me that I might not be quite ready was when I read the account of the Two Witnesses in Revelation 11. It seems no one will turn back to God in the end.

Why did Jesus tell us to love our neighbors as ourselves? Was it just so the world could be all Kumbaya and live in peace and love? Of course, that is part of it, but if we do not love our neighbors now, we will not be ready for God's End Times.

If there is one scripture in God's Holy Word worth remembering, it is Revelation 11 and the Two Witnesses:

Revelation 11

1 "And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

11 And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.

13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly."

Would you be ready if the Two Witnesses came today? We all can and should be ready. Just as the Two Witnesses is one scripture that may reveal to us that we have no clue about the End Times, there are also a couple of passages from Jesus that will make sure we are ready for them, if we listen to Him:

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;" Matthew 5:44

If we "do everything in love, as" 1 Corinthians 16:14, tells us to, we will fulfill all the law and the prophets, because as Jesus said, Loving God and loving your neighbor as yourself are the two greatest commandments.

Now, it is commonly-accepted belief that the Two Witnesses come during the seven-year tribulation Daniel 9:24-27, which is good news for Christians, because that means we will have already been caught up together in the clouds with Jesus 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, and will not have to be tested in this way.
 
And, they shall not suffer their bodies [that is, the Two Witnesses] to be buried: "
And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them." Revelation 11:11

Love God, and love your neighbor as yourself, so that you are not left on earth when God's Two Witnesses unleash His wrath. Read God's Word and store it in your heart so that you do not sin against Him.  Psalm 119:10-12. Pray for understanding.

Repent. Forgive and pray for forgiveness. Pray for the love of God in all of His children, and all men, and for the peace that passes all understanding.

Don't be the one who waits to see Him coming on the clouds before you believe in Him. It may be too late then.

Follow along and say this Prayer of Salvation to accept Jesus Christ as your savior:

Dear God. Thank you for loving me. I repent of the sin in my life, and turn to You in full obedience. I believe that Your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, died on the cross for my sins. I believe that you raised Him from the dead, and that He now sits on the throne at Your right hand. I love and accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior, now and forever more. Amen.

​Peace and blessings, Melanie

<![CDATA[THE NATURAL MAN]]>Thu, 16 Mar 2023 17:25:11 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-natural-man

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14


Heavenly Father, thank you for your blessings. Bless the world. Bless Your children. Bless the lost. Bless You. In Jesus' name. Amen.

The “natural man,” as opposed to the supernatural man of Christ, receives not the things of the Spirit of God…. Neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

1 Corinthians 2

7 “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.”

14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.”

Let’s look at verse 7 again, “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:”

Jesus Christ was foreordained before the foundation of the world:

1 Peter 1


20 "Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever."

Jesus Christ is the word made flesh: "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."

And by this “wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom 1 Cor. 2:7 above,” the word made flesh, Jesus Christ, we are transformed into His image, from glory to more glory.

At verse 10, “But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”

The Spirit of God searches man’s heart for the deep things of God.

And verse 12, “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”

Those who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior have received the spirit of God, not the spirit of the world. You can accept Jesus as your Savior by saying the Prayer of Salvation by clicking here.

Accept Jesus, and listen to and obey God’s gift of the Holy Spirit inside you.

1 Thessalonians 5
 
19 “Quench not the Spirit.
 
20 Despise not prophesyings.
 
21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.”

Christians may not understand every passage in the Bible, but we understand this:

God is good. “And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.” Matthew 19:17
 
God is love. “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” 1 John 4:8
 
Everything God created is very good. “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” Genesis 1:31
 
Every good and perfect gift comes from God. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” James 1:17
 
God loves us. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
 
God will not forsake us. “Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” Deuteronomy 31:6

God is real, but so is Satan. 
 
There are only two kingdoms: God’s kingdom or Satan’s kingdom: “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” 1 John 5:19
 
What do we know about Satan? We know that he was subtle, cunning, wily, crafty. We know that he was a liar, and the father of lies. We know that he was the deceiver of nations, who caused the whole world to sin. We know that he came to kill, steal and destroy our blessings from God. We know that he tempted Eve in God's garden of Eden.
 
The serpent tests Eve (“that old serpent called the Devil and Satan” Revelation 12:9). “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5
 
Adam and Eve choose Satan’s kingdom (evil) by disobeying God. “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” Genesis 3:6
 
However, “No sooner was the wound given than the remedy was provided and revealed.” Matthew Henry. At Genesis 3:15, only a few short verses later, God promises a Savior: “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”


Christ was the “seed” promised to man in the beginning, to crush Satan’s head.

When Adam and Eve disobeyed God, man went from being perfect, walking in the presence of God, and knowing only God’s love and light, to now knowing evil and darkness. "And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:" Genesis 3:22
 
Man is exiled to a life outside of the presence of God. “So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.” Genesis 3:24
 
Submit yourselves to God, obey God, resist the devil by accepting and believing in God’s Son, Jesus Christ, reading God’s Word, accepting God’s love, and His Will for your lives, and the devil will flee from you. “Let Your Will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10. Your Will, not our own. Amen.
 
“The way, the truth and the life” for mankind: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” James 14:6
 
“no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Jesus is man’s “way” back into the presence of God, after being exiled.
 
Jesus crushed Satan’s head for us. Satan now has no power over us unless we let him have power: “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7

2 Corinthians 3

17 “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty [emancipation from bondage, true freedom]
 
18 And we all, with unveiled face, continually seeing as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are progressively being transformed into His image from [one degree of] glory to [even more] glory, which comes from the Lord, [who is] the Spirit.”
 
Let’s look at Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on 2 Corinthians 3:12-18, from biblehub.org:

Quote: “It is the duty of the ministers of the gospel to use great plainness, or clearness, of speech. The Old Testament believers had only cloudy and passing glimpses of that glorious Saviour, and unbelievers looked no further than to the outward institution. But the great precepts of the gospel, believe, love, obey, are truths stated as clearly as possible. And the whole doctrine of Christ crucified, is made as plain as human language can make it. Those who lived under the law, had a veil upon their hearts. This veil is taken away by the doctrines of the Bible about Christ. When any person is converted to God, then the veil of ignorance is taken away. The condition of those who enjoy and believe the gospel is happy, for the heart is set at liberty to run the ways of God's commandments. They have light, and with open face they behold the glory of the Lord. Christians should prize and improve these privileges. We should not rest contented without knowing the transforming power of the gospel, by the working of the Spirit, bringing us to seek to be like the temper and tendency of the glorious gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and into union with Him. We behold Christ, as in the glass of his word; and as the reflection from a mirror causes the face to shine, the faces of Christians shine also.” End quote.
 
So, through Christ’s love, like a reflection of His light in a mirror, we, “the natural man,” once banished from God’s presence, can once again be the supernatural man of love and light God created us to be, and let our light shine into the world, into the hearts of men.
 
You can read more about the veil of blindness over our hearts in my blog titled “The Veil” here.

Also, you can read My Testimony to God’s Power, titled “The Veil and the Law of Moses” here, to learn about my husband and my experience with “The Veil.”
 
Whatsoever you do, do all to the glory of our great God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
 
God bless you! Amen.

<![CDATA[WHY PRAY?]]>Mon, 13 Mar 2023 04:00:00 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/why-pray
Jesus prayed to God, the Father, many times.

"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.Philippians 4:6
 
Pray fervently James 5:16, without ceasing 1 Thessalonians 5:16-28, and, as Jesus said in Matthew 21:22, “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
 
If we ask, believing, we shall receive. It doesn’t say maybe we will receive. It says we will receive. We have to begin to listen to God’s Word, and hear it, take it to heart as if it is alive, take the words as if they have real meaning in our lives, because it is alive, and they do have real meaning in our lives! Amen.
 
And, if you do not receive an answer from God right away, keep praying, fervently, without ceasing, until you do receive, in God’s Time, and His Will1 John 5:14 “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:” Amen.
 
Again, it doesn’t say maybe He will hear us. It says, He hears us! So, keep praying until it is His Will. Amen.
 
Many people, myself included, pray for something once, like it’s a chore, and then feel like, good, that’s out of the way, it’s in God’s hands now. No, we must pray fervently and without ceasing, until our prayers are answered. . . if we want them answered.
 
One of the greatest eye-openers for me about prayer was when I realized that, in Jesus’ short time on earth, He prayed to God, the Father, many times. I read an article that said, I think, He prayed over 650 times, and over 450 of those prayers were answered while He was on earth. And, that is just what we know about, that which is written about in the Bible. All of the acts of Jesus are not written about in the Bible.
 
I mean, wow. Jesus prayed to God. We should too.
 
Let’s look at some scripture about Jesus praying:

Matthew 14:23 "After He had dismissed the crowds, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. When it was evening, He was there alone.”

Luke 5:16 "But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray [in seclusion]."

Luke 22:44 "And being in agony [deeply distressed and anguished; almost to the point of death], He prayed more intently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down on the ground." 
 
That is some intense prayer. Thank you, sweet Jesus, for your sacrifice. Amen.

JESUS PRAYED FOR THE CHILDREN

Matthew 19 verse 13 "Then children were brought to Jesus so that He might place His hands on them [for a blessing] and pray . . ." 
 
JESUS SAID, MY HOUSE SHALL BE A HOUSE OF PRAYER


Luke 19 verses 45 and 46

45 “Jesus went into the temple [enclosure] and began driving out those who were selling, 

46 saying to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be a house of prayer’ . . ."

JESUS PRAYED FOR HIS APOSTLES

Luke 22 verse 32 "but I have prayed [especially] for you [Peter], that your faith [and confidence in Me] may not fail; and you, once you have turned back again [to Me], strengthen and support your brothers [in the faith]." 

JESUS PRAYED FOR BELIEVERS

John 17
 
9 “I pray for them; I do not pray for the world, but for those You have given Me, because they belong to You;" . . . 
 
and, verse 20 “I do not pray for these alone [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for [all] those who [will ever] believe and trust in Me through their message," 
 
Jesus prayed for future believers!

Hebrews 5:7 "In the days of His earthly life, Jesus offered up both [specific] petitions and [urgent] supplications [for that which He needed] with fervent crying and tears to the One who was [always] able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverent submission toward God [His sinlessness and His unfailing determination to do the Father’s will]." 
 
So, Jesus prayed to the Father, specifically and urgently, for that which He needed, with fervent crying and tears . . .
 
How many of us do that? I mean, as I was writing this, I was like, oh man, we, believers, just do not get it at all.
 
Prayer. Why don’t we listen to God, and His Word, when we know it is alive and active and powerful? Men are so stubborn. Jesus offered up, prayed for, both [specific] petitions and [urgent] supplications [for that which He needed]. We should do the same, and we should keep praying until our prayers are God’s Will, until He answers them. Amen.

JESUS SAID PRAY TO AVOID TEMPTATION

Luke 22:46 "and He said to them, 'Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you may not fall into temptation.'” 
 
THIS is me. I love my sleep. God has been calling me for two years to get up around 2 to 3 am and pray. I did a few times, but Satan tells me repeatedly that I love my sleep; it’s too cold; too hot; I’m too tired. Jesus said, Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you may not fall into temptation, and disobey God. Put a fire under me Lord. Amen.
 
JESUS PRAYED AFTER HIS BAPTISM

Luke 3:21-22 "Now when all the people were baptized, Jesus was also baptized, and while He was praying, the [visible] heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit descended on Him in bodily form like a dove, and a voice came from heaven, “You are My Son, My Beloved, in You I am well-pleased and delighted!” 

JESUS PRAYED THREE TIMES BEFORE HIS CRUCIFIXION asking God to let the cup pass from Him, but always in God’s Will, and not His own!

Matthew 26:39, 42 and 44

39 "And after going a little farther, He fell face down and prayed, saying, 'My Father, if it is possible [that is, consistent with Your will], let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.'” . . . 

42 "He went away a second time and prayed, saying, 'My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done.'” . . . 

44 "So, leaving them again, He went away and prayed for the third time, saying the same words once more." 

JESUS PRAYED AT HIS LAST BREATH

"And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Matthew 27:42. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

So, Jesus prayed repeatedly, for many things. We should do no less, if we want God to answer our prayers.
 
Do not fall into Satan’s trap of thinking that if God did not answer your prayers that he simply is not listening to you, or doesn’t care about you, because He is listening, and He does care about each one of us, more than we could ever comprehend.
 
He will answer our prayers in His Time, in His Will:
 
Isaiah 46:10 “Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:”
 
His counsel will stand, and He will do all His pleasure . . . In HIS time, not man’s time, not Satan’s time, God’s Time. Praise God.
 
What is the definition of fervently? From dictionary.com: “with great intensity of spirit, feeling, enthusiasm, etc.”
 
If we pray fervently, without ceasing, pray believing, in God’s Will, we will receive.
 
James 5 tells us that prayer is “dynamic”:
 
James 5:16 from the Amplified Bible “Therefore, confess your sins to one another [your false steps, your offenses], and pray for one another, that you may be healed and restored. The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God--it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].”
 
Definition of "dynamic": always ACTIVE or changing.

So, prayer is always active or changing, and can have tremendous power, when put into action and made effective by God! There is power in God's Word, and His Word says, there is power in prayer.
 
In Psalm 138, we learn that God magnified His Word, the Holy Bible, given for us, so we can have faith in Him, know that He is real, He magnified His Word above His Nameand His Word tells us to pray in every circumstance and situation!
 
Psalm 138:2 “I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.”
 
Fervent and unceasing prayer is important if you want action from God. How, when and where you pray is not as important as just praying.

God works in mysterious ways that we do not understand, that we cannot possibly understand. God is moulding us into His Will, and we need to let the pieces that Satan has defined as us fall off. Literally, we need to tell Satan to, Get behind us, or better yet, get under our feet, so we can bruise or crush his head. Satan is down under our feet, and we are up here in the clouds with Jesus. 

Our prayers do not have to be specific or elaborate. God is not judging us on our grammar. Meditation on His Word, prayer and worship can, and should, be done all day long, every day. When asked by His apostles how to pray, Jesus replied, pray in this manner: Matthew 6:9, the Lord’s Prayer.
 
Let’s bow our heads and pray:
 
“Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
 
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
 
Give us this day our daily bread,
 
And forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.
 
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever. Amen.”
 
Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Why does it seem like everyone is offended by everything? I mean, they cancelled Mr. Potato Head! What's up with that?

The feeling or emotion of being offended comes from self-pride, or, in this instance, a sense of entitlement, and fear, lack, doubt, unbelief, all things Satan instills in us. "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7

Entitlement . If you think about it, man is really only "entitled" to one thing, and that is the breath of life breathed into his nostrils: "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." 
Genesis 2:7

And that, only as long as God allows: "And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done." Revelation 16:17

No one understands the Bible completely. That is why there are many commentaries and opinions on many passages. But God ... But everything He created is very good. "And God saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was very good." Genesis 1:31

I read this morning that they are removing Jefferson statues (somewhere in the United States) because he owned slaves. Do you see what they are doing there? Will they remove the Bible next because they owned slaves? 

God takes the evil imaginations of men (and demons, spiritual wickedness in high places Ephesians 6:12) trying to harm us, and turns them to our good. Satan always loses. As Joseph told his brothers, after they threw him into a pit to die, and then he was sold into slavery in Egypt, and became second in command to the Pharaoh: "But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive." Genesis 50:20. Because, of course, as we know, decades later, Joseph saved his brothers and their families, and many people, from a grievous famine in the land.

God has nothing but thoughts of peace toward us. "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." Jeremiah 29:11

And God's final act mercy for man was sending His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins.

"But God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8

He gives us good and perfect gifts from heaven above:

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." James 1:17

And, "We love him, because he first loved us." 1 John 4:19

Hallelujah to the Lamb of God. Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

<![CDATA[ONE-GOD CHALLENGE]]>Tue, 07 Mar 2023 05:00:00 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/one-god-challenge



There is only One God found righteous above His fellows:

"Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows." Hebrews 1:9


As I write these blogs, which represent revelations God has given me over the past few years, I realize God's theme throughout, which is the lukewarm Christian. It is time to pick a side: God or Satan.

Along those lines, at the end of 2021, God put on my heart that 2021 was, indeed, not just another year, but 2021 was the year that America and the World began to awaken and realize that there is only One God who can save us, even with Eternal Life. 

Learn how to know God by hearing from Him, and gaining an understanding of Him and His Holy Spirit, the Comforter, which can only be received after accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. John 14:26 "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you."

The Good News of the Gospel of Christ

"
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13

"Call upon the name of the Lord" by saying the Prayer of Salvation out loud, along with me.

Heavenly Father, thank you for Your many blessings in my life. Thank you for forgiving me of my sins. I repent of the sin in my life, and I turn away from it, and surrender in full obedience to God, the Father. I believe with all my heart that Jesus Christ is Your only begotten Son, who died, and rose again, and now sits at Your right hand in heaven. I accept Him now and forever as my Lord and Savior. Thank you for loving us, and for Your sacrifice. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

​Now that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can begin to walk with, and talk to, God.


To activate Holy Spirit in your life RIGHT NOW, stand up, raise your hands in the air, and give all glory, honor, praise and thanksgiving to the God of the living, the living God, and watch Him come right where you are standing and fill you with His Spirit!

Now, follow these three easy steps every day, and watch blessings from heaven pour into your life.

First step in how to hear from God: Live Your life now by the standards of God's kingdom, and follow God's precepts and commands.

What are the standards of God kingdom? Moral uprightness, righteousness.

Galatians 5:22-23 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

Jesus had two of His own commandments:

Matthew 22

36 "Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."

Second step in how to hear from God: Pray to God frequently throughout the day, ask for discernment (understanding) of His word and His plan for your life. Prayers do not have to be elaborate. God knows our hearts:

"I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings." Jeremiah 17:10

And, God knows what we need before we know we need it: "Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him." Matthew 6:8

If you are short on words, simply pray the Lord's Prayer, as given to us by Jesus. The more you pray, the easier the words will come to you:

The Lord's Prayer

Matthew 6:9-13

"Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."

And, the Third and final step in how to hear from God: Read the Bible! You will get as much from God as you give Him, so the more the better. Read chapters every day. Do not worry if you do not understand every word. Keep reading and praying. What version you read is not as important as just reading it. Switch between your preferred version, like King James Bible, and an easy-to-read or Amplified version, or a study Bible, to help with difficult passages. God will give you understanding.

That is it! Accept Jesus, obey God, read the Bible and pray. It is THAT easy. 

God's gifts come in differing forms: dreams, visions, knowledge, talents, prophesying, tongues, healing, and more:

1 Corinthians 12

4 "Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will."

God has made it clear to me, we are in a Spiritual Revival and Spiritual Revolution. No one will be able to deny God's work.

Find out if God has gifts for you, and/or God's plan for your life. Do not miss out! What do you have to lose?

Hallelujah! Praise God! Thank you, Jesus. Amen!

<![CDATA[KING JAMES BIBLE]]>Sun, 05 Mar 2023 23:15:58 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/king-james-bible

Heavenly Father, thank you for your many blessings in our lives. Thank you for Your Word, Your Spirit inside of us, and Your only begotten son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Are you thinking about reading the Bible, and have no clue where to start? Don't think, just read! Amen.

Seriously, however, which version of the Bible is the best, or most accurate, version to read? 

It may surprise some people to know that the King James version is considered one of the most accurate English translations of the Holy Bible today! A group of 54 translators worked 7 years to complete the King James translation.

What does God say about His Word? Psalm 12:6 "The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times."

Purified seven times: Is it a coincidence that the King James Version is a culmination of six previous translations, with the King James Bible being the seventh, Purified Seven Times, as follows:

​Tyndale Bible
Coverdale Bible
Matthew's Bible
Great Bible
Geneva Bible
Bishop's Bible
King James Bible

Now, I do not think it matters which version we read, as long as we read it. Personally, when I started studying the Bible in 2019, I was blinded by the ruler of this world, and I found it very difficult to understand the King James Version. So, I began studying God's Word in an easy-to-read Bible. Then, next, I read the entire Bible, Genesis to Revelation, in an Amplified Version, which is more pages, more words, because it explains a lot of passages. And, finally, I was called to read His Word in the King James Version, which I just completed recently, and have since started reading it again at Genesis.

Honestly, God does not care which version we read, and if He does care, He will let you know. Just read it! He is waiting to show YOU great and mighty things. Call unto Him. "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." Jeremiah 33:3

I have said this many times, but it is worth repeating: Praying is how we talk to God, and reading His Word is how He talks to us.

God Bless You-All. Amen.

<![CDATA[THE BIBLE, INSPIRED BY GOD]]>Sat, 04 Mar 2023 14:23:57 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-bible-inspired-by-god



​Is the Bible, God's Holy Word, inspired by Him? Don't take my word for it. God's Word should always be our fact-checker:

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” 2 Timothy 3:16

This week, I had a long chat with someone in the comments section of one of my posts on bitchute.com. You can read our conversation about Jephthah, one of God's Judges, by clicking here.

The last thing the commenter reiterated was that the Bible, God's Holy Word, is a Luciferian Bible, Satan's Bible, and that Christians have basically been duped.

If the Bible is a Luciferian book, then Satan has a really bad business plan, because he created over 2.5 billion people (Christians), who love everyone, want peace, help the needy, hate abortion, love innocent life, and hate wickedness, or unrighteousness.

All of these things are antithesis to, or against, Satan's very reason for existence, his mode of operation, his business plan. As Jesus said in Matthew 12,

25 "And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?"

Also, I did a little research on what Satanists think of God's Holy Bible, and what I found was enlightening. They believe the Bible is full of myths and fairy tales, and they do not use it. They have their own satanic bible. I cast down to the pits of hell all evil imaginations. In Jesus' Mighty Name. Amen.


Sacrifices and burnt offerings are NOT from God, the Father of Lights, in whom there is no variableness or shadow of turning.

Jeremiah 7

22 
"For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices:

23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.

24 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward."

After their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears, saying what they want to hear, instead of the Word of God:

2 Timothy 4

3 "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."


Remember, Satan was cast down, fallen, and whispering in the ears of men, deceiving nations, a murderer, and a liar, the father of lies, who caused the whole world to sin.

God is love. God is good. Everything God created is perfect.

James 1

17 "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls."

Do everything in love! 1 Corinthians 16:14

If you are not saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, or if you are not sure, follow along and say "the Prayer of Salvation" out loud by clicking the below image, and YOU can know Jesus as well. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13

​Read the Bible, obey God, pray, and God will show you great and mighty things.

​Hallelujah to the Lamb of God. Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

Welcome to the Family. Love in Christ, Melanie

<![CDATA[LOVE PEOPLE, HATE EVIL]]>Thu, 02 Mar 2023 20:23:31 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/love-people-hate-evil

James 5 verse 16 “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
 
God says, Confess our faults one to another. How many of us like to admit that we are wrong? Probably not very many. That makes it a little difficult to confess our faults one to another. It is okay. No, it is not okay, but it is human nature, Satan’s nature, to protect ourselves and our feelings. Satan is very good at his job, but God is our protector, our provider, our shelter, and our salvation.
 
The remainder of James 5 verse 16 tells us why God tells us to confess our faults one to another: Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.
 
I am sure we all want to be healed, healed physically, emotionally, spiritually, body, mind and soul. Healed from years of Satan’s influence in our lives, beating us down, whispering in our ear that we can’t, we aren’t  good enough, or telling us we are too good!
 
Not too long ago, the Pastor at our church asked for testimonies, and I had this testimony with me, but when he asked, I shrunk back and hid the paper. Sly as a fox. Who else was sly? Satan!
 
So, I did not get up and give this testimony; I’m a coward. Satan won that round, and after hearing the lesson that night, of course, I wished I had given it, because it was about sweeping Satan under the rug.
 
Anyway, the reason you will see that I did not want to give this  testimony, basically ever, is because I will be confessing my sins, my faults, one to another.
 
God’s Word is alive, and it is written for us. His Word says, Confess your faults, and pray for one another that you may be healed!
 
So, here goes. First, just know that I love children now.
 
Around April 2022, Holy Spirit revealed to me how Satan operates in our lives, to keep us from fulfilling God’s Will and God’s plans for us. More specifically, He showed me how Satan has operated in my own life, basically grooming me with bad quirks, bad habits, dislikes, even hates, illnesses, and other behaviors and physical attributes that Satan thinks, hopes or counts on preventing me from obeying or freely serving God’s call now.
 
Remember, Satan’s goal at all costs is to keep us from our rightful inheritance, and to keep us from our blessings.
 
To see how Satan operates generally, let’s look at Genesis 3:1: “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made.”
 
Subtil means cunning, wily, crafty, deceitful, using trickery, underhanded. THAT is Satan!
 
Still looking at Genesis 3 verse 15 “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”
 
So, we can bruise Satan’s head, but he can only bruise our heel. Satan is under our feet, to be stepped on, trampled on. Some translations have it as “crush Satan’s head.” Personally, I prefer that translation: We can kill Satan in our lives; remember, resist the devil and he will flee from you. Satan cannot kill us; he can only tempt us, with worldly, material things, and evil, fleshly vices.
 
1 Corinthians 10:13 “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” Amen and amen.
 
Satan is only able to tempt us with these worldly things, and he is able to tempt us only so much, because God will not allow us to be tempted more than we can withstand: Our God is amazing and good - all the time. Amen.
 
Following are two examples of how Satan has tried to work in my life, and has done a pretty good job until about four years ago. Perhaps, confessing out loud will give others the courage to recognize some of the ways Satan may be holding them back from freely fulfilling God’s Plan in their lives right now. After all, knowing is the first part of doing, or overcoming.
 
In May of 2020, I wrote my first Testimony to God’s Power, and in that Testimony, I tell how one of the first things God put on my heart in 2019 was to quote “help the children.” Easy enough, right? Except for as long as I can remember, I would tell anyone who asked or who would listen: I don’t like children. I know, right? Who doesn’t like children? Satan!
 
So, Satan whispered in my ear most of my life, You don’t like children, and this was one of my life’s mottos, or Satan’s mottos for my life. So, if any children are listening right now, I love you all now. God is good. Amen. Satan is evil.
 
Now, lo and behold, decades later, after I am firmly planted in Satan’s motto for my life, and loving it, God tells me to “help the children.” You cannot make this stuff up.
 
Do you see how God called me to do the one thing that Satan thought he had prepared me my whole life to dislike?
 
I did help the children by donating money to various charities, and by spreading God’s Word on social media to pro-choicers for about a year and a half during lockdowns, until social media became social(ism) media. Before God called me to this service, I had no problem with abortion. I thought: there are too many unwanted children already; too many children not being raised properly; my body my choice seemed reasonable. I now despise abortion with a vehement dislike. Jesus said, Hate evil. Abortion is evil; abortion is an abomination, and nowhere in the Bible does God, the Father, tell us to murder or kill our babies, born or unborn. Bless the unborn babies, Lord, bless the little children. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
 
The next life motto Satan whispered to me over my lifetime, and sadly has apparently whispered to a lot of people, because I hear people say it often is: I don’t like people; I hate people; or even, I like animals more than I like people.
 
Jesus had only two commandments: Love God and love your neighbor as yourself. Nowhere did Jesus say to hate people. To the contrary, He said love them, pray for them, bless them, feed them, give them something to drink and clothes to wear, love them as if they are you.
 
We are in a time of refreshing by God right now, hallelujah! when our sins may be blotted out . . . if we repent of them.
 
Acts 3:19 “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;”
 
How else does Satan work in our lives to try to keep us from reaping our blessings from God?
 
Many people, including me, while we are sleeping, make grand plans of things we want to do around the house, or in life, maybe how we want to serve God, or a ministry we want to start. And, then, we wake up, and the reality of who we are, who we have become in this life, sets in. Fear sets in. Satan sets in. Then, we start talking ourselves out of it. We hear Satan there in the background saying, You can’t do that; you don’t even know where to start with something like that; no one will help you; it’s a lot of work; that’s not who you are; you have too many responsibilities already; you can just serve God another way?
 
Man has a sinful nature, courtesy of Adam, Eve and the serpent in the garden of Eden. We must combat this sinful nature every day; we must resist Satan every day and he will flee from us. James 4:7 Amen.
 
God forgives us for the sins for which we ask Him to forgive us. If, then, we have a sinful nature, it stands to reason we must repent to God, turn away from sin, and pray for forgiveness every day. This is why it is important to have God’s Word stored in our hearts. The more God’s Word is stored in our hearts, the less the devil will come around, and be able to steal our blessings. With God’s Word stored in our hearts, God Always Wins, and We Do Too! Amen.
 
In 1 Corinthians 15, Apostle Paul wrote that he dies every day. How could he die every day? Because we have a sinful nature. Yes, we have the Power of God’s Spirit, God’s Word, and the blood of Jesus Christ, by which we strive to become more like Jesus on a daily basis, to overcome this sinful flesh and sinful, evil world, as Jesus overcame, but we are still human, and we still have a sinful, human nature; God’s forgiveness does not remove our sinful, human nature.
 
1 Corinthians 15:31 from the Amplified Bible “I assure you, believers, by the pride which I have in you in [your union with] Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily [I face death and die to self].”
 
There are many ways we can sin against God talked about in His Word. Our lukewarm to cold society and churches have caused people to sin by teaching that because we believe in the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we can do whatever we please and are forgiven. No. This is a fallacy, an untruth, not even supported by God’s Word. To the contrary though, it is not that now we can do whatever we please, but because we have the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ, now we no longer desire to do those sinful things we used to do. Amen.
 
There are many sins talked about in the Bible. One of the greatest sins is pride in oneself, to which Apostle Paul is referring in 1 Corinthians 15:31: Because he had pride in [himself] for bringing these unbelievers in Corinth to Christ, and he is saying he sins every day and dies because of that pride.
 
We also see the sin of pride at work in the book of Esther, where Haman’s self-pride got him executed on the hangman’s gallows that he had built specifically for Mordecai the Jew to die on, because Mordecai would not bow down to him as commanded. Haman was instead hung on the hangman’s gallows, and Mordecai, a humble servant to God, took his place, and became king Ahasuerus’ second in command.
 
So, there are many ways a man can sin against God every day, and we can only combat those sins with prayer and His Word. Amen.
 
In Job 33, Elihu, the only friend of the four who spoke to Job, whose words were not condemned by God, Elihu is basically telling Job to stop complaining against God; that God speaks but no one listens.
 
Job 33 from the Amplified Bible
 
Verse 13 “Why do you complain against Him?

That He does not answer [you with] all His doings.
 
14 For God speaks once,

And even twice, yet no one notices it [including you, Job].
 
15 In a dream, a vision of the night [one may hear God’s voice],

When deep sleep falls on men

While slumbering upon the bed,
 
16 Then He opens the ears of men

And seals their instruction,
 
17 That He may turn man aside from his conduct,

And keep him from pride;”
 
God speaks once, even twice, and no one listens. It doesn’t say, Maybe He speaks. It says, He speaks. He opens our ears and seals our instruction, so He can turn us aside from our conduct: our thoughts, words and actions, and keep us from self-pride, thinking we are better than our neighbor. God seals our instruction in the wee hours of sleep, and then we wake up, and Satan’s lifetime of training kicks in: sickness, fear, doubt, unbelief.
 
Some people feel persecuted on a daily basis, oppressed, beaten down, sad - persecuted, as if they are guilty of something, of which they have no earthly clue. When we feel that way, we should go into prayer with God. Repent of our sins, cry out to Him, tell Him that we turn away from our sins, and that we surrender in full obedience to Him. Pray for forgiveness. Ask for His Will to be done in our lives. Amen.

The words in the Bible are not just words. They are active and alive and powerful, and written for us. Hebrews 4 verse 12. God cannot repeat it enough: If we pray fervently, without ceasing, and meditate on His word, worship Him, give all glory, praise, honor and thanksgiving to Him, day and night, every day, it will activate enormous blessings in our lives, and we will know that He is real.

​Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

<![CDATA[FORNICATION IS A SIN]]>Wed, 01 Mar 2023 15:45:13 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/fornication-is-a-sin1138042SIN NO MORE
"All unrighteousness is sin..." 1 John 5:17
Heavenly Father, thank you for Your many blessings in our lives. Thank You for Your Word, Your Spirit and Your Son. Bless your children. Bless the world. In Jesus' Mighty Name. Amen.
 
God has shown me that there is a time coming soon when people en masse around the world will be crying out, LIARS, LIARS, LIARS, at the fake news. There will be
great celebrations, and weeping and gnashing of teeth. He has shown me that, It Is Happening, now. What is "It"? God’s Will, His Plan. His timeline in this event of His Plan. He is shining His Light, shaking the earth, waking up His children, and exposing the darkness.

Isaiah 42:16 "And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them."
 
God is waking up the lost, and the believers, with a Spiritual Revival, and that Spiritual Revival is inside me, and each and every one of you.
 
We are the Light of God. He is the head, and we are the body; the head tells the body what to do, and the body does it. God gives us good things, so that we are free to serve Him, serve His lost, needy and weary children, all to His great Glory.
 
Sometime around January 2021 God put heavy on my heart a lack of concern by Christians, and especially "holy people," regarding fornication, also known as premarital sex, or sex between two people who are not married.
 
Apostle Paul preached in Corinth, where they were well-known for having many prostitutes, and the people worshipped false gods. Some of the people of Corinth were Christians, who thought these things were acceptable, and practiced them freely. Apostle Paul tells them, and us, at 1 Corinthians 3,
 
16 “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”
 
17 “If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”
 
Our bodies are holy, sanctified, made free of guilt and sin through the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and we ought not to defile them with sexual immorality. Amen?
 
In 1 Corinthians 6, Paul tells them to “Flee fornication:”

verse 18 "Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body."
 
So, Flee fornication. Run don’t walk. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Amen?
 
More importantly, “he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body." We already read in 1 Corinthians 3:16 that our body is not our own; our body is the temple of God, who indwells inside of us, so when we commit fornication, we are sinning against God’s temple. If we strive for God’s blessings, then we need to remember His curses as well.
 
At 1 Corinthians 7, Paul goes on further to press his point about fornication, or sex outside of marriage. 1 Corinthians 7:8-9.

verse 8 "I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn."
 
I have read before that the “burn” Apostle Paul is referring to here is a “burning passion,” which I never really understood, because it is not consistent with the remainder of God’s Word, which clearly says that fornication is a sin:
 
1 Corinthians 6
 
12 “Everything is permissible for me, but not all things are beneficial. Everything is permissible for me, but I will not be enslaved by anything [and brought under its power, allowing it to control me].”
 
Everything is permissible for me. In other words, I have free will. But even if I can do it, should I? Does it benefit me, other than immediate gratification? We have become a society, a world, of instant gratification, have we not? I have free will, but I will not let it enslave or control me; I will let God’s Will and God’s power control me. Amen!
 
Continuing with 1 Corinthians 6:13 “Food is for the stomach and the stomach for food, but God will do away with both of them. The body is not intended for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body [to save, sanctify, and raise it again because of the sacrifice of the cross].” Amen.
 
There are many informative commentaries and opinions on what this scripture means. I’m going to quote an excerpt from biblehub.com, from the commentary by Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges:
 
Quote: Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats.] Meat is a necessity for our present undeveloped life; in the world where hunger and thirst will be no more it will no longer be so. And therefore both it, and the organs formed to digest food will be no longer wanted.

Continuing with the Quote: Now the body is not for fornication] St Paul is led, by the importance he attaches to this point, to treat it first. The abominable licentiousness, or sexually unrestrained acts, of heathen cities in general, and of Corinth in particular had led to a general conviction that the body was for fornication. St Paul contradicts this, and most emphatically proclaims that fornication is distinctly in itself an unlawful act, contrary to the laws laid down by God for man, and calculated to deprive men of the blessings of the Resurrection.” End Quote.


Let me just repeat that part: “Fornication is distinctly in itself an unlawful act, calculated to deprive men of the blessings of the Resurrection.” Ouch!
 
But our God is good and merciful, and just to forgive if we ask and turn our hearts over to Him. He wants ALL men (and women) to return to Him and be healed, and receive eternal Life. Amen? He is giving us time, and making it really easy for us to see the evil around us, and to listen to Him, hear Him, obey Him, and choose Him, God, the Father, and His only begotten son, Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.


In Romans 1, Paul also preached God's Word to the Romans, about why terrible things came upon them:

Romans 1

25 "Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. [or just]

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate [morally unprincipled] mind, to do those things which are not convenient;”
 
That is a lot of powerful words right there, words that are alive: Retain God in our knowledge, obey God, or be turned over to a morally unprincipled mind.
 
Recently, I came to an important realization. What sets Christians apart from the world is not that we love everyone, and God’s Light shines through us. Yes, that is wonderful and true. But, no, what sets us apart is the “morally principled mind” that is instilled in us from God’s Word.
 
Morals, a moral compass, knowing the difference between right and wrong. It is something that many of us take for granted, and just assume all people have, or most people; I know I did until recently, while chatting with someone online, in the comment section of an online video, they asked me what gave me the right to say that abortion is wrong?
 
I replied, Common sense; morals: knowing the difference between right and wrong, the Bible gives me my rights, the death and resurrection of God’s only begotten son, Jesus Christ, gives me my rights.
 
And, the other person responded with, Morals are a matter of perspective!
 
Morals are a matter of perspective! And, THIS is what we are seeing playing out around us. You know, I read an article some time ago that said that only 13% of children today know who God is compared to 58% sixty years ago when they removed Him from our schools.
 
Thirteen percent of our children are being raised with morals, knowing right from wrong. The line is drawn between right and wrong, good and evil, God and Satan. Choose God because God wins, and He is coming back to the world, back to our nation, back to our schools, and back to our hearts. Amen.
 
How He is coming back is through shakings, signs and wonders and smoking vapor happening all around us, but also, He is coming back through us, through His Children, His Warriors standing up and speaking out, proclaiming God is the Father and Jesus Christ is our king of Kings and Lord of Lords. It is time to speak out about these hard truths, because the time for the lukewarm Christian has passed. We can no longer be complacent. It is time to awaken from our sleep of spiritual complacency.
 
Deuteronomy 23. So, fornication is a sin, and with sin comes death, but also curses. God said in Deuteronomy 23:2 "A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord."


The definition of a “bastard” is a person born to parents not married to each other, or through fornication. Again, these are not just words. I mean, God gave us marriage so we could avoid fornication, so we could avoid sinning against our own bodies, defiling His temple, and also avoid cursing our own future generations to come.


At 1 John 1, God gave us the Good News about sin, about being forgiven: 1 John 1 verse 9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” This includes fornication, and bastards. If we repent and pray for forgiveness, God will not forsake us. Hallelujah. Amen.

In Luke 13, Jesus tells them explicitly that confessing our sins does not mean we continue to willfully sin. Jesus says at Luke 13:3 "I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." 


I emphasize these concepts mostly because they were difficult concepts for me, so I assume others may struggle with them as well. It took me a while to understand that to “repent” and to ask for forgiveness are two entirely different things. To repent is to "turn away from.” In other words, to sin NO MORE. To live our lives as our forefathers, the apostles, Jesus Christ himself did, righteously, in obedience to and with all glory and praise to God, the Father. Amen.

In contrast, asking God for forgiveness is telling Him that we know we have sinned, and asking for forgiveness of those sins.
 
And, so, we put the two together, repentance, turning away from sin and turning to God, in obedience, changing our hearts and showing by the way we live that we have changed, and, also, confessing to God the sins of our lives, and asking Him for forgiveness of those sins. And, most importantly, trying with everything humanly possible inside of us not to commit the same sins again tomorrow. Amen? Amen.


At John 5:8, Jesus literally said, Sin No More.
 
He didn’t say, “Hey man, you’re forgiven forever, no matter what you do. No problem, keep on sinning.” Nope. He said, Sin No More!
 
John 5:14 "Afterward Jesus finds him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, you are made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing befall you." 
 
Hmm. Sin no more lest a worse thing befall you. That is so sad, because people cannot understand what is going on in their lives. Sin no more lest a worse thing befall you. These are not just words. God provides blessings and curses. Amen.
 
And, in John 8:11 “She answered, ‘No one, Lord!’ And Jesus said, ‘I do not condemn you either. Go. From now on sin no more.’”
 
God does not let things happen. Adam and Eve made this choice for us, and now we have a choice to choose God or satan, good or evil. Amen?

Jesus gave many examples of people who claimed to be righteous. Luke 13 is one such instance, from the Amplified Bible 
 
1 Just at that time some people came who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate [the governor] had mixed with their sacrifices.

Jesus replied to them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans because they have suffered in this way? 

I tell you, no; but unless you repent [change your old way of thinking, turn from your sinful ways and live changed lives], you will all likewise perish. 

Or do you assume that those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed were worse sinners than all the others who live in Jerusalem? 

I tell you, no; but unless you repent [change your old way of thinking, turn from your sinful ways and live changed lives], you will all likewise perish.”

Now, some Historians note that the Galileans in verse 1 were probably at the Temple offering sacrifices, when Roman Governor Pilate’s soldiers came through and killed them all at the sacrificial altars, and mingled their blood with the slain lambs’ blood at the altars. Pilate wanted more money from the Temple treasury, but the Jews refused, so Pilate sent men dressed as citizens, and armed with daggers, into the crowds, demanding money, and killing whomever resisted.
 
The Jews who were reporting this to Jesus in verse 1 were implying that they were better than the Galileans because they did not die like that.
 
Notice that Jesus, in His response to them, repeats verse 3 at verse 5, showing a sense of urgency: "I tell you, no; but unless you repent [change your old way of thinking, turn from your sinful ways and live changed lives], you will all likewise perish.” 

Jesus’ answer shows that the Jews who told Him about the Galileans believed that God had permitted them to be killed due to their sins. Jesus was letting them know, in no uncertain terms, that those who died were not necessarily greater sinners, but rather the Jews should themselves repent, turn away from sin, and turn to God, and that if they did not repent, they would all perish as well.
 
Continuing with Luke 13:6, The Parable of the Fig Tree:

6 “Then He began telling them this parable: “A certain man had a fig tree that had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it, but did not find any;

so he said to the vineyard-keeper, ‘For three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree and have found none. Cut it down! Why does it even use up the ground [depleting the soil and blocking the sunlight]?’

But he replied to him, ‘Let it alone, sir, [just] one more year until I dig around it and put in fertilizer;

and if it bears fruit after this, fine; but if not, cut it down.’”


There are a lot of commentaries and opinions about whom the fig tree and the vineyard represent in Luke 13:6, so let’s focus on what we do know from the parable.
 
It seems as though it is not as important whom the fig tree and the vineyard represent, as it is what God expects from them: In Luke 13:7, God is looking for fruit on the trees. Surely, He will do the same with His vineyard. He has given us a season to change our lives (repent), before the trees that do not produce fruit are cut down. We can see this happening around the world now; the Harvest Has Begun.
 
But, now, let’s look at Romans 14, to see what kind of fruit God is looking for on His trees and vines:
 
Romans 14 from the Amplified Bible


6 “He will pay back to each person according to his deeds [justly, as his deeds deserve]: 

to those who by persistence in doing good seek [unseen but certain heavenly] glory, honor, and immortality, [He will give the gift of] eternal life.

But for those who are selfishly ambitious and self-seeking and disobedient to the truth but responsive to wickedness, [there will be] wrath and indignation.

There will be tribulation and anguish [torturing confinement] for every human soul who does [or permits] evil, to the Jew first and also to the Greek [or Gentiles],

10 but glory and honor and inner peace [will be given] to everyone who habitually does good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek [Gentiles].

11 For God shows no partiality [no arbitrary favoritism; with Him one person is not more important than another]."
 
So, we can see that those who seek to do good, and sow seeds of righteousness, will receive eternal life, but those who are responsive to wickedness will be subjected to tribulation and anguish. Jesus is not coming back to bring peace; He is coming to bring a sword of division.


I quote this next scripture a lot because I think it says a lot. Jesus tells us many times how to avoid the tribulation and anguish described to come for those who sow wickedness.
 
Matthew 3 from the Amplified Bible, verse "Change your hearts! [repent] And show by the way you live that you have changed.

verse 9 I know what you are thinking. You want to say, ‘but Abraham is our father!’ That means nothing. I tell you, God could make children for Abraham from these rocks.

and, verse 10 The ax is now ready to cut down the trees. Every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire."
 
Again, He is cutting down the trees that do not produce good fruit. So, sin No More! Produce good fruit, or get cut down. Blessings and curses. The choice is really easy. Amen?

Almost all of God’s words to me over the last few years have been along the same line: Repentance, obeying God, accepting Jesus Christ, Judgment, reaping what we sow, and the Harvest. I mean, that’s pretty much the sum total of God’s Word to us in the Bible. Obey or perish. I really cannot understand how anyone could teach differently, or believe differently. His Word is crystal clear on that subject. Obey or perish. We are special because He gave us His Spirit, His Word, His Son. Amen.

God has been putting a lot on my heart in the last few years. Although it may feel like nothing is happening, that He has forsaken us, that this is the new normal, God has shown me if repent, turn away from sin, and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, God WILL give us love, power and a sound mind, and no poison darts from hell will be able to touch us.
 
God gave us His Spirit, His Word, and His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, so that we can overcome this evil world, as Jesus overcame it, and receive life everlasting.

He has not forsaken us; He will never forsake us. This is not the new normal. There will be much weeping and gnashing of teeth for people who refuse the Good News of God, and much more celebration for God’s Children.


In Psalm 37, we see that God's children, believers in the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ, which gave us the New Covenant, will not fear the evildoers:

Psalm 37 verses 1 through 6

1 "Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday."
 
Look, I know it is hard to see any good in what is happening around us, or in people perishing, but if we are in God’s Word, reading it, storing it in our hearts, then we will know why these things are happening, and that His children will be protected if they repent. THAT is what His Word tells us, repeatedly. He never promises a good time for bad people.
 
So, we are the people who have faith and are saved. Hallelujah! Amen. God said previously that we have been in a Spiritual War, but, also, that He won, as he always does. Satan will never win, and like the Egyptians at the red sea, the time is at hand for God's judgment upon the wicked.  
 
Hebrews 10 from an easy-to-read Bible:
 
35 "So don’t lose the courage that you had in the past. Your courage will be rewarded richly.

36 You must be patient. After you have done what God wants, you will get what he promised you.

37 He says,

'Very soon now, the one who is coming
    will come and will not be late.

38 The person who is right with me
    will live by trusting in me.

But I will not be pleased with the one
    who turns back in fear.'

39 But we are not those who turn back and are lost. No, we are the people who have faith and are saved."

Listen, JUDGMENT IS NIGH, BUT "THE END IS NOT YET"
 
Finally, Isaiah. I think Isaiah is one of God’s greatest prophets. He came into his calling as a prophet when he prophesied the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, some 700 years before Jesus’ birth. I mean, the bible is amazing, right?
 
So, God is calling? Are YOU answering? If not, God says, at Isaiah 66:4 “I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.” 

Delight God today, for tomorrow is not promised. 
 
Let’s bow our heads and pray: This prayer is from the Bible, Psalm 51 verses 1 through 19, because no one can say it better than God:


Heavenly, Father, thank you for our many blessings.
 
Psalm 51

1 “Have mercy upon us, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out our transgressions.

Wash us throughly from our iniquity, and cleanse us from our sin.

For we acknowledge our transgressions: and our sin is ever before us.

Against thee, thee only, have we sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

Behold, we were shapen in iniquity; and in sin did our mothers conceive us.

Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make us to know wisdom.

Purge us with hyssop, and we shall be clean: wash us, and we shall be whiter than snow.

Make us to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

Hide thy face from our sins, and blot out all our iniquities.

10 Create in us a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within us.

11 Cast us not away from thy presence; and take not your holy spirit from us.

12 Restore unto us the joy of thy salvation; and uphold us with your free spirit.

13 Then will we teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

14 Deliver us from blood guiltiness, O God, thou God of our salvation: and our tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

15 O Lord, open thou our lips; and our mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would we give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.”

​Hallelujah! Praise God! In Jesus’ Mighty Name. Amen.

<![CDATA[THE LINE IS DRAWN]]>Wed, 04 Jan 2023 05:00:00 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/the-line-is-drawn
"He that believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he that believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him." John 3:36
All glory, honor, praise and thanksgiving always, to the One True God, the living God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

At the end of 2020, God showed me that He is drawing a line with His finger in stone, and everyone will be able to see on which side of the line they stand, and make a choice.

Then, two years later, on December 27, 2022, that "The Line is Drawn."

And, finally, yesterday, January 3, 2023, showed me that the two sides of the line are "Justice" and "Wrath." God is lifting the veil of blindness from our hearts momentarily, so we can choose righteousness, mercy and compassion, or justice.

What does this mean? It means we, the people, need to remember God's Word, and which side of the line He represents, because sometimes the line may seem a little blurry, if we do not have God's Word stored in our hearts.

JUSTICE OR WRATH

Justice definition: "the quality of being just; righteousness, equitableness, or moral rightness."

Wrath definition: "1) strong, stern, or fierce anger; deeply resentful indignation; ire.; 2) vengeance or punishment as the consequence of anger."

"For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain." Isaiah 26:21

So, God's wrath is His punishment for man's injustice, or unrighteousness. If we choose the side of Justice, or Jesus Christ, then we have no reason to fear God's wrath. This is the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The earth and its inhabitants will be judged, and God's wrath will be unleashed. This should be no surprise. Practically the entire Bible is about God's wrath against unrighteousness and wickedness. God's wrath is justified against the ungodly and unrighteous. Therefore, God is good, because His wrath is justified.

We first saw God's justice and His wrath in Exodus during the passover, when the Jews marked the lintel of their doors with blood, so that God's Wrath, or the Destroyer, would pass over their homes. See my blog titled, The Demons Are Out, for more information about God's wrath and the Destroyer.

Again, we saw God's wrath during the flood in Genesis 6, when all of mankind, except Noah and his family, were judged for unrighteousness, and faced the wrath of God, and all inhabitants of earth, except eight, were destroyed in the flood.

The ritual of animal sacrifice in the Old Testament was also about God's wrath against injustice, or forgiveness for all unrighteousness of man, with Jesus Christ being the final blood sacrifice and forgiveness for sin.

The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was about God’s wrath against injustice and sexual immorality.

The Old Testament wars against the Gentile nations were about God’s wrath against their injustice, idolatry and abominations. 

God did not choose sin and death for mankind. He did not choose wrath, but He did choose justice, or righteousness. Adam and Eve chose sin and death for mankind. If there were no sin, then there would be no reason or need for God's wrath against injustice, but once sin, or injustice, or unrighteousness, entered into the world, God's Wrath was the natural order of Justice: "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness." Romans 1:18 

Let's delve briefly into the movie, "The Matrix," where after being given a glimpse of reality, which is a world where man is literally enslaved in pods by artificial intelligence/machines, and reality is a lie, Neo (Keanu Reeves), is asked to choose the red pill or the blue pill, and told “You take the blue pill…the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill…you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”

Red pill / blue pill

Right hand / left hand

Blessed / cursed

Matthew 25:33 "And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left." 

Matthew 25:34 "Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:"

Matthew 25:41 "Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:"

Many times over the last few years I have questioned myself: Am I on the right side of God's line? Good or evil, God or Satan, and now, Justice or Wrath?

Choosing God's side of the line does not mean just choosing not to kill unborn babies; that should be a no-brainer.

Choosing God's side of the line does not mean just going to church every Sunday.

Choosing God's side of the line means choosing Justice, which is righteousness. Not just with words but with action: Jesus said in Matthew 3:8, Change your lives and show by the way you live that you have changed.

Show by the way you live that you have changed. Every aspect of the way we live should be devoted to God and Jesus Christ: The television we watch; books we read; music to which we listen; words we speak; thoughts we think; and our actions and deeds.

This is God's Will for our lives.

How do we free ourselves and others from enslavement to the world? By living in God's Light. By obeying the remainder of Matthew 25, which says if you have, then give to those who do not have. By fervent and unceasing prayer. By "casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." 2 Corinthians 10:5. 

The definition of "imaginations," from dictionary.com: "the product of imagining a conception or mental creation, often a baseless or fanciful one." As in literally most television shows and movies, especially those that are exalted against the knowledge of God: sorcery, magic, evil spirits, adultery, lying, stealing, murder, covetousness, inordinate affection, blood, fornication. Let's face it, it is very difficult to find a television show or movie where fornication (premarital sex) is not the norm.

Do not participate in these things; cast them down, and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

No one knows God's Plan, nor each man's role in it. This could not be more plain than in the case of Herod Antipas, who divorced his wife to marry his brother's wife, Herodias. He is most famous for beheading John the Baptist at Herodias' bequest through her daughter, Salome.

In Luke 13:32, Jesus calls Antipas a "fox," and in Revelation 2:13, the Spirit [Jesus] says to the angel of the church of Pergamos, "Antipas my faithful martyr." "Faithful" implying a devotion by Antipas to Jesus, Antipas who beheaded John the Baptist.

​We do not understand God's Plan, nor whom He chooses to use to fulfill it, but we are told not to judge, lest we be judged.

​We are told not to speak about things we do not understand. Jude 1:10 "But these men sneer at anything which they do not understand; and whatever they do know by [mere] instinct, like unreasoning and irrational beasts—by these things they are destroyed."

What better proof do we need not to judge or sneer, to understand that we understand nothing without God's Word guiding us, than the story of the Two Witnesses in Revelation 11. 

Revelation 11

9 "And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies [the two witnesses] three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

11 And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them."

We do not understand God's Plan, but what we do know, and can understand, is His Word, the Bible, which is His Plan for us here on Earth, his instruction manual for mankind.

First and foremost, He tells us to love Him. Second, to love everyone, all people, as if they are us. On these two commandments hang all the law and prophets. Matthew 22:37-40

"And above all things have fervent charity [love] among yourselves: for charity [love] shall cover the multitude of sins." 1 Peter 4:8

We, Christians, do not live by the law; we live by the blood of Jesus Christ, and the gospel of peace, which is love, forgiveness, mercy and compassion, and if we remember to love unselfishly and unconditionally, as Jesus loved, then we are followers of Christ Jesus, who came to give us that freedom.

We do not know God's Plan fully, "For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when that which is perfect is come [Jesus], then that which is in part shall be done away." 1 Corinithians 13:9-10

If we have ears to hear and eyes to see, God's Word helps prepare us through His Justice for His Wrath to come against all injustice, or unrighteousness of men.

2 Corinthians 10:6 "And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled."

​Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary on 2 Corinthians 10:6, from biblehub.com:

Quote: 6. Translate, "Having ourselves (that is, being) in readiness to exact punishment for all disobedience," &c. We have this in store for the disobedient: it will be brought into action in due time. when your obedience, &c.—He charitably assumes that most of the Corinthian Church will act obediently; therefore he says "YOUR obedience." But perhaps some will act otherwise; in order, therefore, to give all an opportunity of joining the obedient, he will not prematurely exact punishment, but wait until the full number of those gathered out to Christ has been "completed," and the remainder have been proved incorrigibleEnd Quote.

God has not forsaken us, and He is not slow or late: "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9

Not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance, because the alternative is everlasting destruction:

2 Thessalonians 1

8 "
In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;"

Jesus is not coming to bring peace. He is coming to bring a sword of division between the righteous and the unrighteous.

​The Line is Drawn: Justice or Wrath.

The truth will set us free, free to worship God Almighty, and shine our light in a perverse and evil generation of darkness.

Be the light you want to see. Choose Justice. Choose God. Amen.

<![CDATA[IT NEVER HURTS]]>Tue, 06 Dec 2022 17:41:04 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/it-never-hurts
"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15

A workman that needs not to be ashamed. Are we workmen that need to be ashamed? Or, that need not to be ashamed? If we think about it, Jesus gave us only two commandments: Love God with all of your heart, soul and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37-39.

1 John 4


20 "If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also."

Everyone will stand before the judgment seat of Christ 2 Cor. 5:10 and every tongue will confess to God. Romans 14:11Will we be ashamed of our love for, and service to, our fellow man, especially our brothers and sisters in Christ?

Galatians 6:10 "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith."

Rightly dividing the word of truth 2 Timothy 2:15 above. The "word of truth" is God's Holy Word, the Bible, written for us, as instruction on how to live obedient lives full of blessings.

Rightly dividing the word of truth is ministering the appropriate scripture at the appropriate time and moment, as needed. We cannot do that if we do not know the word of truth. We can only minister it if we Study it, to show ourselves approved unto God, 2 Timothy 2:15 above.

Read the Bible, study it, memorize scripture, so you will be able to rightly divide​ it at the perfect moment. As Apostle Paul says, our joy will be in seeing our brothers and sisters standing with us beside our Lord, Jesus Christ, when He comes.

Recently, I was told that I would go broke if I kept giving. After thinking and praying about it, Holy Spirit showed me that no one ever went broke from giving. Mother Teresa is quoted as saying, Give until it hurts. But scripture tells us that God is able to make all grace abound toward us so that we always having all sufficiency in all things may abound to every good work 2 Cor. 9:8-11​so that it never hurts.

So I say, Give until you think it will hurt, but it never hurts, because God is able to make all grace or favor abound toward us. Amen.

Love your neighbor as yourself.

The Rich Man

Mark 10:17-27


17 "And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?

18 And Jesus said unto him, Why do you call me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

19 Thou know the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

20 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth.

21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lack: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.

23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answered again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

26 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?

27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible."

There are differing opinions on this scripture and what the "eye of a needle" meant. Some suggest that a "needle" was a small gate; others believe it actually referred to sewing needles, which were similar then to ours today. Either way, we can gather that it is an extremely difficult task. 
Who then can be saved? And Jesus said, "With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible"! Amen. God is able.

The rich man had done all that Jesus requires his whole life, save one thing. How many things are we lacking to be perfect, like Jesus?

Give until it hurts, because it never hurts, give your time, your money, your love, always rightly dividing the word of truth, a workman that need not be ashamed.

​God is able to make all grace or favor abound toward you, so that you always having all sufficiency in all things may abound to every good work.

In love and light, and in Jesus' Mighty name. Amen.

<![CDATA[READ THE BIBLE]]>Sun, 04 Dec 2022 12:40:09 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/read-the-bible
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6 verse 33
 
How do we seek the kingdom of God and his righteousness? We read His Word and obey Him.

Holy Spirit has been putting this on my heart for the last few months, and I spoke at church about it in the last few months, I think, but this morning He showed me the "big picture."
 
People, including me, have a tendency to read the Bible looking for the answers to life’s mysteries, or something specific we want to know, or maybe we want to understand completely every word as we read it, or perhaps we read only a verse or two per day. By doing these things, we can and do often overlook some of the greater mysteries and more important messages that God is trying to show us.
 
God’s Word can be difficult to understand, right? People say, I don’t understand the Bible; it’s too confusing; it’s too difficult. I too have said these things, and frequently still do. Let’s face it, no one understands every word in the Bible. That’s why there are so many commentaries and opinions on so many passages, and these opinions can be helpful in understanding difficult passages, but God will provide the answers for which we are seeking, if we call unto Him. Amen.
 
Jeremiah 33 verse 3 “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”

God’s Word is alive; it is written for us. Call unto Him by praying and reading His Word. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10 verse 17
 
Reading the Bible is how God speaks to us; praying is how we speak to Him; praying in tongues is how we tell Him our heart’s desires, which only He can understand. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Or, hearing by reading the word of God. Amen!
 
What I was/am really hungry for when reading the Bible are answers to the mysteries of His Word, and how do I activate His blessings in my life? How do I get Him to show me great and mighty things?
 
Um, hello. Here’s your sign! The power of His Word, which is written for us. The power of the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ. And, the power of His Holy Spirit inside of us.


This morning, again in the twilight hours, Holy Spirit showed me that God, the Father of Lights in whom there is no variableness or shadow of turning, wants all of us to read the Bible, His Holy Word, written for us, so we can find Him and activate His Blessings in our lives.

Not only that but something I noticed over the last few years of reading the Bible almost every day faithfully is that the times when I did not read it as often as God wanted me to, I would get a pain in my shoulder. As soon as I started reading the Bible, the pain would go away. I never wrote about these experiences, because I thought I was crazy yet again, but I told my husband about them plenty, believe me.

This morning, Holy Spirit showed me that many people in the churches have a nagging pain or ailment because God is waiting for us to read the Bible. Not a verse or two per day, chapters per day, from Genesis to Revelation.

Pick up the Bible and read it, and see what happens. Not only might you see minor ailments and pains subside, but God is lifting the veil of blindness from hearts, and He has a lot to show us. 


So, even if we do not understand what we are reading, read it anyway; and, pray for understanding; and keep reading; and keep praying; and, God will show you great and mighty things.

God Bless You.

<![CDATA[GOD vs THE WORLD]]>Sun, 04 Dec 2022 05:00:00 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/god-versus-the-world1761741
These are words that God put on my heart when He first awakened me from being dead in Christ around 2019. He showed me some things about our world now, and what is to come. At the time, I didn’t even really know who Holy Spirit was, but I was beginning to know God; He made sure of that.
 
God wants these words said now, to prepare His children for what is coming. Even so, come Lord. Amen.

At the end of 2020, God made it clear to me that, Roe v. Wade will be overturned! Abortion will be abolished! (See facebook post screenshot below.)


When I posted that on social media, people responded with things like: You don’t know what you’re talking about; Roe can’t be quote overturned”; that’s not what it would be called; you don’t know the law; and, the worst, “abortion will never be abolished.”
 
Well, they were right about one thing, I do not know the law, nor did I know the correct “legal” words to use, but God sure knew them, because that was the headline on the news: Roe v. Wade overturned! Hallelujah! Praise God.
 
So, the really good news is that Abortion will be abolished, and that will be a great thing for the unborn babies. Amen and amen.
 
The first part of God’s word to me, however, about Roe and abortion could be considered political and certainly controversial if we consider it from a worldly point of view. 
 
But let’s consider it from God’s point of view: Abortion will be abolished. Amen. So, the first part of the Roe and abortion word from God to me in 2020 was that “Trump Won! God Won!” Now, this was after the 2020 election, and I know Trump winning is not a victory to some, but it is to God. God has shown me that Trump is His man to abolish abortion. This is not about Trump; or me or you; it is about God’s children. Abortion will be abolished, and whom should God use for the task? None is righteous; no, not one. Romans 3 verse 17. Surely, God could have chosen someone more righteous than Paul to be Jesus’ apostle; Paul persecuted Christians before following Jesus. If we look, we can find fault in all of God's chosen, because man is imperfect and sinful.

So, the morning of January 20, 2021, as I watched President Trump speak at his sendoff ceremony, I realized something:  What God's prophets had meant in the previous months, when they said that God wanted all eyes on Him [God], all thoughts on Him, all hope and faith in Him, all GLORY to Him.

After the 2020 election, I commented more than once, that it is literally Trump versus the World. And sometimes, as a second thought, I would give God credit, too. Of course, I was wrong. All Glory to God Always ... But, as I watched the sendoff speech, I began to cry, weep, lament, for I now understood that it has never been Trump versus the World, but always, God versus the World!

THAT is what God wanted us to realize before His Plan could be fulfilled through, and in, us! 

So, as I listened to the speech, I was filled with sadness and began to cry for forgiveness and mercy, for myself, but, more importantly, for the World, for God's children, who have lost, or are losing, hope in a flesh and blood man, who cannot save us, who could never save us.

Jesus Christ is our Savior, and no one except He can save us! Amen.

"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins." Matthew 1 verse 21  
 
Some people say that abortion will never be abolished completely, and they are right, because there will always be evil until Jesus returns. But God’s Word will be fulfilled, and there is a time coming soon when the world will not be murdering 60 million babies per year.
 
Again, God says, Brace for Impact. He is present in our lands, and the earth will shake when he walks.
 
Cast off evil by putting on God’s armour of light:

“The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.” Romans 13 verse 12
 
The armour of light is God’s Word, the Bible, God’s Power, Jesus Christ. Amen.
 
Thank you. God Bless You.

<![CDATA[BRACE FOR IMPACT]]>Sat, 03 Dec 2022 22:29:35 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/brace-for-impact
This is something God put on my heart in 2021. At the time, I woke up, half awake, in the twilight, with great thanksgiving and praise and glory in my heart to our Heavenly Father. He was very excited in me, and was yelling,

GIVE THANKS!

GIVE PRAISE!

GIVE GLORY!


Psalm 24 verses 8 through 10

8 "Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah."

For our God is righteous and fierce.

"The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works." Psalm 145 verse 17

"Thy fierce wrath goeth over me . . ." Psalm 88 verse 16

​And I just kept feeling, as I lie there hearing over and over, GIVE THANKS! GIVE PRAISE! GIVE GLORY!

people were kneeling all around, everywhere, up and down the streets, and bowing and cheering and celebrating, and giving THANKS! PRAISE! and GLORY!

To our Heavenly Father, the creator of the heavens and the earth, in whose likeness and image we are ALL created, and by whom, we were bought with a heavy price, the blood of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, so that we, wretched man, could be made whole in His perfection, and receive the gift of Everlasting Life!

God will NOT be mocked, and He WILL receive His due THANKS! PRAISE! and GLORY! 

"By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name." Hebrews 13 verse 15

"Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD." Psalm 150 verse 6

Remember the story of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, as he cried out to the God of Abraham in 2 Chronicles 20 verse 9, as the Ammonites and Moabites were threatening Jerusalem:

"If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help." 

Jehoshaphat cried further, "O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee." 2 Chronicles 20 verse 12

And what did our God respond?

2 Chronicles 20 verses 15 through 18

15 "And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.

16 To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.

17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the Lord will be with you.

18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the Lord, worshipping the Lord."

GIVING THANKS!

GIVING PRAISE!

GIVING GLORY!


As in the days of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, God is fighting this battle for us, and we have already seen the proof that he has won. Now it is time to see the battle, to see what has been hidden in darkness. All will be revealed.
 
About a week ago, I told my husband that God put on my heart, Brace for impact, and the following day, I heard a prophet say those exact words. Today, I tell you-all: Brace for impact. The world will be a different place when God is finished, a better place for God’s Children. Do not listen to the false prophets, who are the fake news, social(ism) media censorship, dishonest leaders (political and church). They cannot stand against Our God.

Listen to God, and to His Word. His Word is the Truth!
 
And, in this season of giving thanks, and always, let us give all

Thanks to our GOD!

Praise to our GOD!

Glory to our GOD!

 
Amen. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.

<![CDATA[I MUST NOT PLAY AT GOD]]>Wed, 30 Nov 2022 05:00:00 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/i-must-not-play-at-god

“But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.” 
1 Corinthians 8:6

Heavenly Father, thank you for our many blessings. Lord, heal and restore Your children, our lands, our hearts. We pray for peace for Your children, the peace only You can give, the peace that passes all understanding. In Jesus' Mighty Name.

God started putting this on my heart a couple of years ago, but it was not until around October 10, 2022, that He gave me the courage and/or conviction to begin writing it. Some things just have to be spoken. God said it is time to stand up and speak out.

Around 2019, I learned that the doctor's Hippocratic Oath in the United States was changed in 1964: It no longer says, "Do No Harm." See article by clicking here.

Excerpt from the new and revised Hippocratic Oath: "Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God." End quote.

In this awesome responsibility to take a life, I must not play at God. Hate to burst their bubble, but taking a life is the epitome of playing at God.

Let's look at the first paragraph of the original hippocratic oath, before "Do no harm" was removed:

Excerpt: "I swear by Apollo the physician, and Aesculapius the surgeon, likewise Hygeia and Panacea, and call all the gods and goddesses to witness, that I will observe and keep this underwritten oath, to the utmost of my power and judgment." End excerpt.

Notice they are swearing by a whole bunch of gods and goddesses. Holy mackerel! Where is God, the Father? There is only One God, and one Lord, Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 8:6

Can you think of a reason they would want doctors to take a life? Only God can give or take a life. Not even Satan can take a man's life, but I can give you 60 million reasons they think they can!  60 million unborn babies sacrificed every year worldwide. 60,000,000.

No matter what Satan plans, nothing ever goes exactly his way, because God's Will will be done on earth as it is in heaven. How much Satan is allowed to tempt us is dependent upon God's Will, but also on us, our choices, and how quickly we turn to God in repentance, praying for forgiveness, and forgiving others. 

Who knew that ceasing to pray for something before it is fulfilled is a sin?


1 Samuel 12:23 "Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way:"

Ceasing to pray for something before it is fulfilled is a sin against the Lord. This gives a whole new meaning to 1 Thessalonian 5:17, "pray without ceasing."

For the last many decades years, a lot of people have been called "crazy," because they believed in some "conspiracy theories" that are now being proven to be true and not theories at all. For the most part, these things have not even been hidden by the people perpetrating them; everything "they" do is in plain sight, if we are looking, if we have eyes to see, if we care about the truth. Remember, the truth will set you free. John 8:32

One of those things is the modern-day worship of molech, the god of child sacrifice in the Bible. This is an uncomfortable subject about which to write, because it is so unbelievable that it is happening in the 21st century, right in front of us, that people literally do not believe it; even though they see the video, they will not believe.


"And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead." Luke 16:31

These signs are for believers, to build up their faith, to know God is real, because His Biblical prophecies are coming to pass, being fulfilled; they are to encourage, not to defeat. As believers in the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we see prophecies being fulfilled, and we know that Jesus is near, and that we will soon be with Him.

God is here to save His children, and this should give His children peace, hope and a spirit of celebration.

The following video came to my attention only a couple of days before October 10, 2022. I did not go looking for it; actually have never heard of the "Commonwealth Games" until I saw the video.

Seventy-two (72) nations participated in the opening ceremony, which was officiated by "King" Charles, and the theme of which is "molech worship," child, baby, unborn baby, sacrifice.

Two-thirds of the world watched the televised show.

In. Plain. Sight.

WARNING GRAPHIC: Evil from the pits of hell:
"They built the high places of Baal in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to offer up their sons and daughters to Molech, though I did not command them, nor did it enter into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin." Jeremiah 32:35

Sixty million unborn babies murdered per year worldwide in sacrifice to Molech. Not a conspiracy theory. Not even hidden.

God save the babies. God save the world. Amen.

<![CDATA[GOD'S WORLD]]>Thu, 27 Oct 2022 04:00:00 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/gods-world
Mark 12

41 "
And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.

42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.

43 And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:

44 For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living."
God started putting this word on my heart about a week ago, but just today, when I was reading the Bible at Joel Chapter 1, He showed me what I was supposed to see about the word. Joel Chapter 1 has nothing to do with this word, but that is how God rolls in my life, that is how He speaks to me.

Heavenly Father, thank you for your many blessings in our lives. Thank you for the Power in Your Word, in the blood covenant, and in Your Spirit inside of us. Thank you for making us doers and givers. In Jesus' Mighty Name. Amen.

So, in Satan's world, on earth, there are "needy" people, suffering, rejected, weary, 
because Satan tempted Adam and Eve, and they chose sin and death for mankind.

But God gives to the "givers" so they have more to give to God's children. I mean, having needy people is not a good thing, but that is not God's fault, nor is it His plan or purpose for us. Having "givers" though is supposed to make it bearable, right? Right! But only if the givers actually give to those in need.

Now, maybe breaking it down into the givers and the needy is a little harsh, but it is reality. God does not want man to be in need. He wants the givers to give, but Satan is real, and man has a choice.

For the givers that do give, they will be given more to give. Luke 6:38 "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."

God, the Father of Lights, created us, and He knows the end from the beginning, because He made it all, and it all exists and is held together by Him.

Colossians 1

16 "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence."

verse 17 again: "And he is before all things, and by him all things consist."  

What is the definition of consist? Below from dictionary.com:

Quote: "to be made up or composed (usually followed by of): This cake consists mainly of sugar, flour, and butter.

to be comprised or contained (usually followed by in):Her charm does not consist only in her beauty.

Archaic. to exist together or be capable of existing together." End quote.

So, God is it! He knows it all, the end from the beginning, because by Him all things are made up, composed, comprised, contained, existing together [as One]!

As One, the body of Christ, One body with many members, and God as our head.

Malachi 3 verse 18: "And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence."

Why did Jesus tell us to love our neighbor as ourself? Because they are us. We are One, in Christ: by Him all things consist, are One. Not just words! God's Word is alive, active and powerful, chock full of blessings and curses, and instructions on how to activate blessings and avoid curses, instructions on how to be like Jesus, and overcome this perverse generation, like Jesus overcame.

Jesus came to serve: Matthew 20:28  "just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many [paying the price to set them free from the penalty of sin].”

"And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all." Mark 9:35

Matthew 20

25 "But Jesus called them to Himself and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles have absolute power and lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them [tyrannizing them]. 

26 It is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, 

27 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your [willing and humble] slave; 

28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many [paying the price to set them free from the penalty of sin].”

Those who serve their fellow man now will be first in life everlasting. This flesh is temporary; this pain is temporary. "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

Love your neighbor as yourself. Help the needy. Not just needy Christians, but especially your brothers and sisters in Christ. If we have the necessities, clothes, food, shelter, heat, and they have not, God's Word says to give. Amen.

James 2

15 "If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?

17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone."

Even so, faith in God, believing in Christ, without works, without giving, is dead, as one who barely escapes through the fire, which is judgment.

Finally, God tells us plainly about giving in Malachi 3:

Malachi 3

8 "Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.

10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.

12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts."

Blessings and curses. 

Deuterononmy 30:19 "I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:"


We have a choice. Choose blessings. Choose life.

God further says that we mumble to ourselves, and say it is vain to serve Him. We say things out loud to question Him. We call the proud happy, and say that those that work wickedness lack nothing:

Malachi 3

13 Your words have been stout against me, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee?

14 Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts?

15 And now we call the proud happy; yea, they that work wickedness are set up; yea, they that tempt God are even delivered.

16 Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.

17 And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not."

When writing or speaking about tithing, I have quoted Malachi 3:8-11 more than once, but today, I read the remainder of the chapter again, and began to cry at verse 16. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for saving man.

verse 16 "Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name."

Wow! Where to start? So, first man questions if serving God is in vain, because the proud and wicked people seem to get richer and more powerful. "Then"! Then they that feared the Lord spoke often one to another: Those of like mind started gathering together, as in church. 

"And the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord," Satan has taught people well these days to fear nothing; even infiltrating churches and teaching God's children not to fear God. That is not what God's Word  tells us: "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." Ecclesiastes 12:13

And, not just one scripture, but Jesus also said, "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." ​Matthew 10:28

Fear God, not man.

The last part of Malachi 3 verse 16 says, "and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name."

In other words, Bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.  

There is a scripture I read recently that I cannot remember or find - don't you hate that? It must have been in Ezekiel, maybe Daniel. It was about God's wrath to come, and how it would basically miss the people who were praising God or worshipping Him, like "don't touch them." I can't remember what it said exactly. If anyone knows this scripture, please comment and let me know. Thank you. Thank you.

This word from God today is not a commercial, but I do feel that some who read it may need to start sowing into God's Word and giving, in order to start reaping blessings of abundance. So, solely with that in mind, following is a link to the "Give" page for our church: Living Waters Assembly of God - Give

​There are also many great charities to which one can and should give, but whatever you do, do not let Satan kill, steal and destroy your blessings of abundance: Give; give often; give regularly; give generously; give joyfully; give until it hurts. Because God is our ​Provider! He knows what we need. He will not forsake us.

All glory, honor, praise and thanksgiving to God, the Father of Lights, in whom there is no shadow of turning. Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen and amen.

God bless you all.

<![CDATA[BE A DOER]]>Thu, 20 Oct 2022 15:43:59 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/be-a-doer
"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Romans 12:2

​The Perfect Will of God. All glory, honor, praise and thanksgiving to God, the Father of Lights. Thank you, Jesus. Amen. 

A little background on this blog: In speaking to our Pastor, I told him that I need to bridle my tongue. He said, Oh ... well, James talks about that: Pastor David always has the right answer from God. God bless him.

So, reading the Bible today, I started reading James 1 ​again, and found many enlightening passages. Let's look at verses 17 through 25:

James 1


17 "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed."


There is a lot of good stuff packed in those eight verses. Let's break them down.

Verse 17: God is good, and everything He created is perfect.

Verse 18: "
Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, His own will, His grace, because He wanted to, as a favor, because He loves us. He begat us with the word of truth: The word of truth is Jesus Christ: the word made flesh; the way, the truth, and the life.  

Verses 19 and 20: He is telling us to bridle our tongues, because as we know "the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison." James 3:8. And, used in anger, "
works not the righteousness of God." Let God's Will be done, not our own. Let God's words be spoken, not our own. Bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. Amen.

Verse 21: "and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls." Meekness, humbleness, not proudness or arrogance. Receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save our souls.

"Engrafted." Now, there's a priceless word. It has only two possible definitions, from dictionary.com:


  1. Horticulture. to insert, as a scion of one tree or plant into another, for propagation: to engraft a peach on a plum. Or,
  2. Surgery. (of living tissue) to become grafted.

Jesus Christ, the word made flesh, the Word, God's Word, is engrafted into us, by surgery only God could perform, and is able to save our souls. Read His Word; it is alive!

Verses 22 through 25: "Be doers"! Get out and do! Stand up. Speak out for God. Testify. Give. Help. Save. Serve. Be doers, not just hearers of His Word.

​"being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed."  Again, God tells us exactly how to receive His blessings: Be an active doer, not a forgetful hearer.

Heavenly Father, thank you for your many blessings in our lives. Thank you for Your Word and the word made flesh, Jesus Christ. Fill us with Your Will, Your light and Your love, replace our stony hearts with hearts of flesh, and bless Your Children for being doers of Your work. In Jesus' Mighty Name. Amen.

<![CDATA[CALLED OUT OF DARKNESS]]>Tue, 18 Oct 2022 19:56:02 GMThttp://faithfullamb.com/my-walk-with-god/called-out-of-darkness
"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;" 1 Peter 2:9


​Heavenly Father, thank you for our many blessings. Thank you for the Power of Your Word, Your Spirit in us, and the blood sacrifice of Your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, Powers that are specifically for us. Transform us into Your Glory, Lord. In Jesus' Mighty Name. Amen.

Around 2020, God told me, "If you touch the feet of a righteous person, they will be healed." 

Now, I was a baby Christian at the time, still am, but then I had only been studying God's Word for a year or so. Honestly, I didn't even know what "righteous" meant. Around that time, I looked at my husband and said, What does righteous mean? Are you righteous?  Am I? A couple of years later, 2022, and I now know righteous to mean that we obey God, because if we obeyed God, then we would not sin, and we would be righteous.

Around the same time, God gave me a vision of my husband and me participating in a tent revival, at which I was healing people. When I received this word and vision, we were not even attending a church. What on earth was I going to do with that information?

Until we started attending our current church around August 2021, I had not told anyone about healing except my husband, and then our new pastor. Pastor David always has the right answer from God, and when I asked him what I am to do with this information, he said the Holy Spirit will tell you when the time is right and what to do. He was right!

Almost a year later, and CalledOutOfDarkness.One Tent Revival Meetings came to our church, and set up a tent on the church property. My husband and I attended one of the two nights, and it was a very spiritual event, but the thought of healing, or the vision of healing in a tent, never crossed my mind, or may have crossed my mind, but not seriously. What did cross my mind was another vision I had after we started attending church: It was a tent revival at the church, with the parking lot full, and shuttles shuttling people back and forth, and I thought maybe the current tent revival was a precursor for those future tent meetings.

This is so crazy. Our God is a supernatural God, right? A few months later, and a church member from the Called Out of Darkness tent meetings started attending our church, and asked me to go to another tent revival meeting in a couple of weeks. I agreed, but we failed to exchange phone numbers, and she did not come to church the next two Sundays. A few days or so before the tent revival, in my sleep, I was thinking, dreaming, having a vision, Oh well, I guess I don't have to go to the tent revival, because I'm not even sure if the person who invited me will be there. 

And, Holy Spirit said something that made me laugh in my dream, something like, What is wrong with you? You SHOULD GO to the tent revival meeting ANYWAY: I told you, you are going to heal. And, the light bulb went off, as it usually does, and still in my sleep, thinking to myself, I was like, Oh yeah, I should go anyway, and talk to the prayer leader about healing.

Once we hear Holy Spirit speak clearly, our resolve to obey is deepened. So, I went to the tent meeting; the woman who invited me was not there, but I started talking to the prayer leader for the event, and told her that the Holy Spirit had moved me to heal, and really moved me to the event today. She said they usually vet people before letting them heal, which I understood; I told her what church I was from. She said she would let me help healing one of the tent meeting team members, who specifically had problems with her feet.

So, we went up front in the tent, in front of the band, and three or four people placed hands on the person being healed, and I stooped down and touched both of her feet. The music was really loud; I don't know if it was louder because I was stooped down, but it was really loud. From the moment I touched her feet, it was like it was just her feet, not even her, just her feet, and Holy Spirit and me in the room, and the loud music, and Holy Spirit wanted to be heard above the music, and I started praying out loud in spirit, very loudly, in tongues. I don't know how else to describe it except it was loud; I could hear that it was loud. I suppose it could be called "fervent," or with intensity in spirit.

It was a surreal experience, and when I was finished praying, it was like it never happened in my mind; like I had done nothing wrong; like no one heard me because no one was there. I stood up, and the prayer leader was smiling at me, and I smiled back at her. The person who was being healed was crying, and later, she hugged and thanked me. Praise God. 

It was not until literally three days later when I snapped out of the surreal feeling about the experience, and Holy Spirit told me that I was there that day, at that tent meeting, to heal that person, at that moment, in that very manner! Hallelujah! Praise God. Thank you, Jesus.

All glory to God, the Father, all glory and honor and praise and thanksgiving. In Jesus' Mighty Name. Amen.
