What is Mariology?

Because I have always associated the Catholic Mary with praying the rosary I wanted to add this to what I am about to share:

FYI about what Wikipedia says about prayer beads:

“Prayer beads are used by members of various religious traditions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, **Christianity**, Islam, Sikhism and the Bahá’í Faith to mark the repetitions of prayers, chants or devotions, such as the rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Catholicism, and dhikr (remembrance of God) in Islam.”

I am going to make a bold unpopular statement here: The practice of Catholicism is considered by millions (plus) to be Christianity. It is not. Therefore Christianity does not use prayer beads.

WHAT IS MARIOLOGY?

Our belief in the Lord is not about :”DON’T DO THIS – DON’T DO THAT!”

It is about wanting to obey God and not desiring to do those things which feed the flesh and keep us separated from God.

We know what those things are from our own personal experiences. Most of us have rebelled at one time or another and found we were right back where we started-apart from our Shepherd-lost and lonely 😞

He loves us and wants us to rest and enjoy the hope through Jesus that He has for us 💕

AGAPE LOVE!

💕 John 10:27-28 💕

27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

💕 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.

WHAT A GREAT AND MIGHTY GOD ❤️❤️❤️

Most people…

… can see but are blind.

… can hear but are deaf.

…eat but still hunger.

…drink but still thirst.

…have a coat but are still cold.

…are rich but are poor.

…are alive but are dead.

That is because Some One is missing in there life…

*2 Corinthians 3:14*

But their minds were hardened; for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains unlifted, because it is removed in Christ.

*Proverbs 20:12*

The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The LORD has made both of them.

*John 6:35*

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.

*1 Timothy 6:7-8*

7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

*Romans 6:11*

Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

PRAISE THE LORD! HE IS ABLE TO MAKE US SEE! HEAR!

HE IS ABLE TO FILL US! QUENCH US!!

HE IS ABLE TO WARM US AND ENRICH US!

MOST OF ALL IS ABLE TO MAKE THOSE THAT ARE WALKING AROUND DEAD -ALIVE!

YEP! Can the Lord get an AMEN! in the comments from those of us that stand by this truth!! Knowing these things personally for ourselves?! We love You, Lord!!! Thank You for what you have so graciously done for us!!! May anyone that comes across this post – that doesn’t know your goodness- cry out to you with hunger in their hearts be fed by your love for them ❤️❤️❤️

Yet…

…so many blame Him for their problems as if He is evil! I know once upon a time I blamed Him for mine. The problem was I was evil-I rejected Him-I reaped what I sowed-SO THANKFUL FOR HIS MERCY AND GRACE!

❤️❤️❤️

Jeremiah 29:11-13

11 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.

12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.

13 And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Do Not Worry

Yes! Amen 🙏🏻💕

Have you ever noticed that the Lord Jesus Christ always calls us to a higher standard than the one we would set ourselves?

“Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things

Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”       Matthew 6:34

Is “not-worrying” and “not-fretting” humanly attainable in circumstances of marriage breakdown and divorce situations?  Well only with the Lord’s help it is. Not that I am claiming to have lived through this time worry and fret-free by any means, no indeed not; for I certainly suffered various bouts at varying degrees of severity!  But, with all such struggles I kept bringing each new worry to the Lord in my prayers. Once again, this is the work of a lifetime for the Christian, to learn how to trust the Lord more quickly and more thoroughly with each worry or trial that crosses our paths. …

Romans 13

(*The duty of subjection to governors. (1-7) Exhortations to mutual love. (8-10) To temperance and sobriety. (11-14) )

13 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:

4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.

6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.

7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

12 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.

13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.

14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

❤️ We can be fed and never hunger and drink and never thirst through the Lord our God’s Holy Spirit in His written Word the Holy Bible and especially THE LIVING WORD -JESUS! ❤️

WHAT A BLESSING TO KNOW THIS AS WE JOURNEY THROUGH THIS DRY PARCHED LAND!!!
