This is the “work” of God…

John 6:28-29

28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

 

Doing deeds for people is great when led by The Holy Spirit. The glory goes to God for that! Along with the deeds we are led to do and give goes the Gospel.

Humanity can do good deeds all it wants but if the Gospel is not shared~preached~then what good are the deeds of man?

I deal with some one that wants the good deeds given to them but does not want to hear about The Jesus that was sent to save them~not condemn them 😦

PSALM 56

1 David complains against his enemies. 9 His confidence is in God.

56 Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.

Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.

What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.

They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.

Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

10 In God will I praise his word: in the Lord will I praise his word.

11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.

13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

Behind convent doors

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.” – Revelation 3:20

My Life in the ConventMYL
By Margaret Lisle Shepherd
Book and Bible House, 1946, 258 pages

Protestant books examining alleged abuse in Roman Catholic convents proliferated in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Many of these books were written by ex-nuns. Catholic spokespersons naturally categorized these books as “Puritan pornography” and accused the authors of fraud.

An example of the genre is “My Life in the Convent” written by Margaret Lisle Shepherd (aka Sister Magdalene Adelaide), first published in 1892. As an English girl living in India, Shepherd learns from her dying mother that her deceased father was a Catholic priest. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree so years later, after she has returned to England, Shepherd herself succumbs to the advances of a determined priest. Father Egan abandons his vocation and the two enter into a common-law marriage, which produces a baby girl. Egan eventually regrets his…

God is praised in heaven for His judgments. WORTHY IS THE LAMB!

**Revelation 19:1-6**

19 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:

For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.

And again they said, Alleluia And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.

And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.

And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

WOW! ❤

**Revelation 5:11-12**

11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

Can Roman Catholics have a “personal relationship” with Jesus Christ?

“The Bible certainly speaks of obedience and good works, but we can only walk with the Lord in obedience AFTER we have accepted Him as Savior.”

excatholic4christ

Can a Roman Catholic have a “personal relationship” with Jesus Christ? Such a question is not well-received in this era of watered-down theology and inclusiveness. But before you become offended, let’s take a look at this query calmly and objectively.

It’s referred to in different ways – trusting in Christ, accepting Jesus as personal Savior, knowing Christ, following Christ, accepting Jesus into your heart, etc., – but they all refer to a moment in time when a person comprehends they are a sinner and deserves eternal punishment, that Jesus Christ, God the Son, came into this world and died for their sins, but rose from the grave and offers them forgiveness and eternal life, and the person comes to Jesus in prayer and genuinely accepts Him as their Savior by faith alone, knowing they themselves did not do a single thing to earn the gift of salvation that Christ offers. When a person…

I am sorry…

…for those of you that do not want to rest in The Good Lord and have a joy and peace that surpasses ALL understanding.

I am learning what the following verses of *scripture mean. I am also learning that some people would rather live in their “muck and mire” then to ever admit their is a God that fixes and heals our brokenness.

The Lord says not to give to people knowledge that just want to refuse it. They are not wanting God’s knowledge. They are looking to trample on “you”. There are many that are keen enough to turn scripture on you. DO NOT FEAR THEM. We need to use discernment when dealing with the “dogs and swine”. We FEAR The Lord our God and what we share comes from HIM (it better anyway!). They are going against The Good Lord not “us” and we need not be offended personally about that.  God will take care of the situation in the way He sees fit.

FAITH, PEACE and JOY. We are blessed to have it!  Don’t let the devil steal it he has NO right to it. They are gifts given to us by God. The God that reveals Himself to us in everyway possible. ❤

 

*Matthew 7:6-8

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Yes…

…even those that proclaim their Christian-hood become so wrapped up in what they have been taught that unknowingly to them they are despising Jesus and Him that sent Him.

I know, I was one. I can never proclaim the innocence of never having “been there, done that”. PRAISE GOD FOR HIS GRACE THAT ALLOWS THE RELIGIOUS “VEIL” TO BE DROPPED SO THAT WE CAN TASTE AND SEE THE GOODNESS OF  THE LORD! REST IN HIM! IT IS FINISHED! JESUS SAID SO! HOW EXCITING! ❤

Luke 10:16

16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.

Would You Like to Hear the BEST News Ever?

You won’t hear it on the secular news sources…but you will “hear” it when you read God’s Good News!

John 3:16-17

16 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.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

How much better of news can one hear then that?  ❤

“On Christ Salvation Rests Secure”

On Christ salvation rests secure;
The Rock of ages must endure;
Nor can that faith be overthrown
Which rests upon the “Living Stone.”

 

No other hope shall intervene:
To Him we look, on Him we lean;
Other foundations we disown,
And build on Christ, the “Living Stone.”

 

In Him it is ordained to raise
A temple to the Father’s praise,
Composed of all the saints who own
No Saviour but the “Living Stone.”

 

View the vast building, see it rise;
The work how great, the plan how wise!
Oh, wondrous fabric, power unknown
That rears it on the “Living Stone!”

 

But most adore His precious name,
His glory and His grace proclaim:
For us, condemned, despised, undone,
He gave Himself, the “Living Stone.”

 

~By Samuel Medley (1738-1799)~

For all of us who are born again of God’s Holy Spirit, we are eternally
secure. Our faith is secure in Christ Jesus. Our good works did not
save us, nor can our good works keep us saved…
but Christ keeps us secure. He has given us His Spirit–
which is the “earnest” of our salvation.”
