A Visit With Amos

“We starve the hungry to rebuild buildings that house no one. We freeze the homeless while we cheer on a sports team. We let the mentally ill fend for themselves while we fight over parking spots at the local Sam’s Club.”

New Hope for Dry Bones

I went on a wander through the bible today. I just landed here and there touching on places I don’t usually go.

I found myself in the book of Amos. I guess I have always kind of thought of Amos as a bad part of the city, I didn’t want to go there.

Amos was kind of on a rant. He was sick of where Israel was headed. They were materialistic, economically successful (at least the upper class was) and had become a land of greedy individuals (at least according to happy old Amos).

So I read a little and WHAM! Israel sounded a lot like the good ole’ U. S. of A!

Amos 6:1 What sorrow awaits you who lounge in luxury in Jerusalem,
and you who feel secure in Samaria!
You are famous and popular in Israel,
and people go to you for help.

The words “lounge in…

“… quicken me, O Lord…”

 

Psalm 119:104-107

104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

106 I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments.

107 I am afflicted very much: *quicken me, O Lord, according unto thy word.

PEACEMAKERS

I was watching a church service on YouTube last night and the preacher said that his young wife had been told that the pain she was experiencing had no medical remedy, and this would be her “new normal” in life. The doctor said that he would give her pain medication, but that was all he could do. The preacher called everyone he knew and asked them to begin praying for his wife, and then he had the elders of the church anoint her with oil. The pain didn’t go away immediately, but in a few weeks the pain suddenly left and never came back. What a great testimony! I’ve heard this preacher give similar testimonies of answered prayer. Trouble comes and he calls everyone he knows, the prayer warriors. Wonderful testimonies of answered payer followed.

In the past I have had the blessing of being part of a large prayer…

Romanism, Relics and the Worship of Body Parts and Other Things

“We are living in a day where Christian unity is being pushed and obviously the church of Rome is smack in the middle of all of that type of talk.”

Romanism, Relics and the Worship of Body Parts and Other Things

Video Summary…

“A New York Times article dated April 9, 2019 tells us about the actual physical heart of a French priest who died in 1859 being venerated (worshiped) by the Roman Catholic people.

As a former Roman Catholic I know that all of this stuff is first of all nothing more than the inventions of men, and thus it is nothing more than man-made tradition. I must also say when a person allows themselves to become in this sort of thing they open themselves up to the occult and you can call it sorcery, you can call it spiritism, you can call it witchcraft and it would all apply. That would certainly offend many people but in the case of this human heart of that former priest which the church of Rome say…

I am always amazed…

… at how the Good Lord works things out for us when we are stressed and turn to Him and say “Your will Lord not mine!” We can then relax and let be what He wants it to be!!!

WE ARE SO BLESSED TO HAVE FAITH THAT HE WORKS ALL THINGS OUT FOR OUR OWN GOOD AND ESPECIALLY FOR HIS HONOR AND GLORY!!

PRAISING HIS HOLY NAME!!!

❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻

Worship in SPIRIT and TRUTH!

“Religion is the enemy of true faith.”

*John 4:24

24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

WE ARE FREE TO DO THAT AND COMMANDED TO DO THAT ❤️

*John 8:32

32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

WHEN WE KNOW GOD’S TRUTH FOR US WE ARE MADE FREE ❤️

LET EVERYTHING THAT HATH BREATH PRAISE THE LORD \o/ 🙏🏻❤️

*Psalm 150

150 Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.

2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.

3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.

4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.

5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.

6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.

These verses from chapter 37 from the book of the prophet Ezekiel ❤️

Ezekiel 37:20-28

20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.

21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:

22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.

23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.

24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.

25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.

26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.

27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

28 And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

ONE NATION! JEWS AMD GENTILES! JESUS IS THE KING!! Hallelujah!! 🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️
