Love

God tells us that if someone doesn’t put ‘love’ forefront with Scripture in every regard including learning or preaching, they know nothing. By seeking the wisdom to love through each verse, someone can have an understanding of who God is and why God’s Word was written. Someone can have knowledge of the entire bible, knowing stories, numbers, time-lines, prophesies, etc. …

No Reaction

Think of all of the trouble we would not have instigated in our lives if we never would have reacted to instigators. Someone might wonder how they themselves could be referred to as an instigator, if they were not the original source of trouble. Without a reaction to evil, there would be no additional or sustaining power of evil instigated …

WHEN YOU LOVE JESUS ~ Written by James Rathman

~ Jesus would never try to control or destroy your life. When Jesus tells you to do something, there is no need to ask others for their opinion. There is no need to ‘feel out’ what other people think. There is no need to confer. There is no announcement for approval needed to be made to others. When Jesus tells …

LOVE

1st John 3:16-18 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: And we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother hath need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? My little …

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 …

CHRISTIANS, UNITE!

Jesus didn’t suffer on the cross for Christians to divide over self-righteousness. What gain is there for the kingdom of heaven and God’s glory, for His children to be weak from intolerance? Knowledge comes to pass, but love does not. (1st Corinthians 13) God fellowships with all of His children all of the time, not based on their progression of …

Love

LOVE… When God created ‘free will,’ He knew that some people would choose evil. God also knew that with ‘free will’ there would be the capacity to love. “Father, in the name of Jesus, I worship, I bow, I praise, I give thanks, I give glory to. In great humility and suffering for the truth of who I am, undeserving, …

Our spirit affects our loved ones spirits

Just as God’s Spirit affects our spirit, our spirit affects others. By embracing the Spirit of light, peace, truth, joy, and the love of Jesus Christ, these traits emit and affect others around us. Galatians 6:8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit …

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, …

How much do you love God?

Some people never consider praying to God to ask what they can do for Him each day. God details in varying Scripture such as Ezekiel 3, the rejection of the idea of even listening to God. This is amazing. God is trying to shower His children with love, and they aren’t receptive to it. Ezekiel 3:7  But the house of Israel …

A parent’s love for their child

It’s compelling to see a parent having an involuntary feeling of love for their child. But God’s love for His children doesn’t stop there. God works hard at loving His children. God teaches us that love includes many details such as thought-out words, actions, and deeds. There are many examples of the immensity of love that God has shown His …

Jesus loves you right now!

Don’t beat yourself up IF YOU SIN OR MAKE A MISTAKE, or are not with the Lord right now. Jesus has already beaten death for “YOU!” Don’t ever think Jesus loves everyone else and went to the cross for everyone else but you. If you have a conscience that you have done wrong or feel that you are not right …

How we treat each other

How well that we treat and speak about each child of God, is a reflection of how well that we treat and speak of God.

Peace and joy

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have peace and joy at all times during our everyday lives? Today, as I sat down to write, I prayed; “Lord, what would You like to be the topic of my article today?” The Lord immediately spoke to me saying;“Romans 5.” I opened my Bible to Romans 5 and began to read. I had previously …

Happy Father’s Day

This Father’s Day is on June 19th. Americans will celebrate and honor their fathers, young and old. I will honor my own Father as I do every year. I’ve been blessed to have a wonderful Father who has a heart for Christ Jesus and God the Father. I love my Father very much and am happy that God chose him …

God wants to help you today

God wants to help you today. Scripture states that a person can pray for specifics. But what a person wants and what God knows a person needs can be two different things. God has already given us the greatest gift that we can receive today, His unconditional love. It is also real easy for us to give God the greatest …

PRAISE GOD FOR ALL AND EVERYTHING!

Scripture tells us that all will come to pass. This includes our time-based blessings as well as difficulties. If someone receives a wonderful blessing that transpires for one hour, one day, one week, one month, or however long and then it ends, there are several outlooks.  A person can feel a letdown, no doubt, when a wonderful blessing comes to …

THE POSITIVE AND THE NEGATIVE

If everyone had a positive view in life, that would be great. However, much can be learned by viewing the negativity of others. The negative multiplicities of others can inspire a person to be that much more positive. Scripture states that negativity, complaining, finger pointing, gossiping, mocking, overseeing the lives of others, meddling, and fault finding…are the fruits of the …

Which denomination makes it to heaven? (new edition)

The more we know about God is to realize how little that ‘we’ know.  Imagine if God only had fellowship with people who knew as much as He knows. If that were the case, God would not fellowship with any of us. A Christian doesn’t suddenly receive a ‘KNOW IT ALL’  diploma from God. The power from heaven does not …

A Mother’s love

There are some things a Mother can’t bear not to teach a child. The love of a Mother yearns to make sure that their child has the wisdom in life to get themselves through their problems on their own in case one day they are not there. They cringe at the thought that their child could one day learn survival …

Being of one mind and one accord

A Christian would never want to lead a double life. Jesus doesn’t love His children part of the time. As a child of the Most High, a Christian is representing Jesus at all times. Imagine the pain to Jesus if someone acts like they know Him to one person, and to another person they act like they don’t know Him. …

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 …
