TODAY, IS JUST TODAY ~Written by James Rathman

~ God Almighty, our Father in heaven, guides His children not to allow the devil to deter them from their mission. Scripture instructs God’s children to be sharp minded, alert, unwavering not to be fooled when the devil cleverly through many means tries to sway or stop. This guidance from God includes not allowing the devil to weigh upon someone …

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? ~ Written by James Rathman

~ It can be embarrassing and humbling when the Holy Spirit has us self-reflect to something we’ve conducted or said in which we knew was wrong and went against God’s Word. This awareness can get someone on their knees real fast in humility and asking for forgiveness. A great way to become rich within the Spirit of God, in prayer; …

GOD DOES NOT PLAY AROUND IN BUSINESS

~ God’s business is love and everlasting life. God ‘is’ love. And to consider just some of what God has created along with the blessing of His Word, God has gone to great lengths to love and sustain life. God has patience. But, God does not play around when one of His children influences and harms others by reflecting a …

GOD. ARE YOU HAPPY WITH ME?

The Bible has many stories where God states that He is pleased or displeased with His children. God loves the heart of someone who has a good and grateful conscience to do His will. Scripture tells us that His children who truly love Him are the children whose ‘desires of the heart’ are to please God. Some people love God …

LEARNING GOODNESS, FROM GOODNESS AND EVIL

The reality of a world with ‘free will’ is exposed throughout our lives and in the Bible. God repetively uses and teaches us how to use evil as a tool for an outcome of goodness. This includes using God’s wisdom to lead people to Jesus through their pride, envy, and lust. Throughout Scripture, God exposes the advantages of being obedient, …

God can give us more, or less

In various Scripture, including Ezekiel 4, God teaches us that if someone isn’t thankful for what He has given them, He can make them have less. But Job, while in a state of immense suffering from great losses, still  praised and trusted God. Job 1:21-22 And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, …

Being a true Christian friend

Imagine how much pain a person would feel if Jesus acted like He didn’t know them at the gates of Heaven. Such is the ongoing pain of Jesus when much of the world has denied Him. Even more painful to Jesus are the Christians who act one way to one person and another way to another person pertaining to their …

Solomon’s conclusion about life

Scripture states in Ecclesiastes that Solomon had learned that everything that is worldly is of vanity and meaningless. This is because everything of this world is finite. This realization includes self-pleasures, which have a very short life span and are not eternally profitable. Ecclesiastes 2:11 Then, I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the …

Loving God foremost

When a Christian prays to God to direct them on the path He has designed for them,  the answer to this prayer can be challenging but extremely rewarding. If someone wants to have a challenging and unrewarding path, with chaos, trouble, and unease, they can choose their own path in life…and hence be in the grasp of evil. Proverbs 4:19:23 …

Being qualified as a Christian leader

A Christian leader cannot have a double life. God sees all that a person does. Only God qualifies a person as a Christian leader. Scripture states that this includes always desiring growth in many characteristics such as the understanding of the wisdom to love God and to love one another as He has loved us. John 15:12 This is my …

Peace

There is only one God, and God is Almighty. A person can either find this out the easy way or they “WILL” find it out the hard way. God’s love yearns for us to surrender our lives completely to Him so that He can shower us with blessings, including His peace. Some people reject the path God has for them, …

Much can go wrong in life, PRAISE BE TO GOD!

Much can go wrong in life. However, many more things can go wrong in life if our SOUL’S and SPIRIT’S are on a joint venture to destroy ourselves. Numerous actions, thoughts, and words can put us in the grasp of Satan. Some of these things are a flat-out rejection of Jesus, claiming to be a Christian but leading a dual …

Looking at Jesus face to face

One day we will all look at Jesus face to face. I never took much time to actually consider how that would be. Imagine being thoroughly ashamed that we lived our lives for our own selfish happiness and pleasures as a priority, while we know that Jesus lived and died for us. Jesus sacrificed His entire life even unto a …

Gratitude To God For The Storms

There’s no one that hasn’t experienced some sort of tribulation, strife, or storm in their lives. It’s how we handle each and every storm that matters. It’s times like these that remind us that we aren’t in control and we don’t have all the answers, but God does. We may feel lacking in competency and wonder how things will work …

God is love

God is love. How, then, are things not always wonderful and perfect? In the grand scheme of “everlasting,” at this point, we are just mere babies growing. If you were God and you had a home, who would you want living with you? Would you want friends who were grateful for your love and blessings, and who loved you in …

Are our loved ones in the arms of Jesus or in the grasp of Satan?

Can there be anything more unsettling than watching a loved one  being in the grasp of Satan’s fruits of misery, hatred, unease, drama, gossip, control, destruction, selfishness, lies, manipulations, pride, envy, negativity, being unaccountable, and the eventuality of eternal damnation. OR, can there be anything more joyous than seeing a loved one in the arms of Jesus’ love, joy, peace, …

Have you ever felt that all of your hope was lost? Were you ever in a situation where you feared that a good outcome seemed impossible? Join the crowd.

CHOOSING GOD’S RIGHTEOUSNESS

The Lord has made it real simple for us by offering only two overall choices for our human lives and for our everlasting souls and spirits. We don’t have to be perfect to choose God’s righteousness, just sincere. Ephesians 6:24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen. God is love. God is righteous. God corrects us so that we are not …

  I grew up in Covington, Virginia, and experienced a difficult childhood including sexual abuses from the age of three until six. I had a strong faith and love for Jesus though, and this got me through my childhood and other difficulties as an adult. I also had a glow in the dark plaque that hung on my bedroom as a …

Living a God Centered Life Written by Lisa Connor

What is a God Centered Life? For Christians, it means that God is at the center of their life. God is first and foremost. God comes before their children, their spouse, their friends and family members. Putting God as the center of daily life builds a strong spiritual foundation that can weather any of life’s storms. Jesus said in Matthew …

“God, why did you do this to me?”

Did you ever feel so broken that you asked God, “Why did You create me and then allow such bad things to happen to me?” Humans can develop health issues including diabetes, arthritis, Fibromyalgia, joint pain, broken bones, influenza, HIV, and other issues. Fifty percent of Americans die of heart or cancer related issues. I met a woman who had …
