1Sa 5:2-3 KJV 2 When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon. 3 And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again.
Coexist, this has been seen on bumper stickers and signs; each letter of the word comprised of a religious symbol, including the cross of Christ and the star of David. The "new age" movement is nothing new, it's Gnosticism in a new coat. No one god is better than any other god therefore all gods are acceptable. Gnostics deign to place Jehovah on the same level as the pretend gods of this world, and many of the hip and trendy so called Christians embrace plurality with fervor. They are so afraid of being seen as intolerant that they readily deny who God is by placing him on the same level as man-made gods. Christians are to be different from the world not like the world.
Gen 5:1 KJV This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
It is said that God created man in His likeness and image, and that man has been returning the favor ever since. Gnosticism and religious plurality has a stranglehold on the world today. People do not understand who God is because they have created Him in their likeness and image. They have a god who is weak and limited by human foibles. They have a god who is merely a cosmic santa claus by which they may take their ease in this life. And worse, people today see themselves as god; elevating themselves above the throne of Jehovah. Any one who says differently is considered intolerant or an extremist. Yet God says I Am who I Am, he created us we didn't create him. Today, take a moment and let go of your misconceptions of God. Let him be who he is and be who he created you to be. There is nothing extreme about acknowledging God as God. That is your purpose.
You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
Peace, perfect peace, or as the New Testament puts it: “Peace that surpasses all understanding”, can only be found by having our minds fixed on God. Many are overcome by a thousand anxieties and fears because, instead of having their hearts set on things above, they are entangled with the affairs of this world. Some are so preoccupied and focused on the problems of the world that they have lost all sight of the promises of God. Peace cannot be found in a world that is controlled by wickedness and under the wrath of God. Peace can only be found in the Prince of Peace, the Lord Jesus Christ. We are to trust God with all of our heart, not for the restoration of a nation, but for the establishing of His kingdom. Peace is found in the “Blessed Hope” – the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. Set your mind on Christ, and the cares of earth will fade away.
2Ch 7:14 KJV If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
If we hope to see healing in this land, God provides a way in His Word. We who are adopted into the family of God, have access to the Abrahamic promises. We, not the world, not the sinner nor the heathen are called to this. We must humble ourselves before God, for he resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. We have no merit by which we may approach God except by faith in Christ Jesus. We must call upon him in prayer and intercede for our nation, repenting for our own sins and the sins of our nation. We must seek his face, to be in his presence, to know him intimately and seek to do his will. Then turn from our wicked ways and lead by example for the world to follow. If we do our part, God indeed will do his part.
Mar 1:15 KJV And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
The hour grows late, yet the message of Jesus still rings true today. To repent means: to turn or to change one's mind. But it is not enough to turn from sin. In fact, we ought to turn towards Jesus and inevitably we will turn away from those things which bring about death. And we need to believe the Gospel: the Good news. The death, the burial, the resurrection and ascension of Jesus, the son of God and the son of man. The perfect and acceptable sacrifice for our sins; because without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin.
GOOD NEWS Encouragement For Today
"Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from Him cometh my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved." - Psalm 62:1,2 KJV
Luk 17:5 KJV And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.
When the apostles found themselves challenged by Jesus' instruction on forgiveness, they asked Jesus to increase their faith. This led Jesus to tell the parable of the mustard seed. Many Christians today feel that Jesus was merely referring to the size of the seed. In reality, he was speaking of an active faith. How a tree, large enough to shade animals and nest birds, could burst forth from such a tiny seed. A similar comparison could be made of giant oak trees that burst forth from tiny acorns. God has given us a sufficient measure of faith(Romans 12:3), but now we have to let it burst forth and come alive, then can we speak to our mountains and they will be removed, or speak healing or deliverance. God's power has not changed, but we don't see miracles like in the past as God does not trust us with His miracle working power, because we don't exercise our faith.
1Ti 2:5 KJV For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
There is no one who can intercede between God who is: holy, perfect and righteous; and man who is sinful and vile. No one save Jesus, the son of man and the Son of God. Only Jesus can serve as the prefect mediator. Only his death and resurrection could open the way into the holiest of holies that man might be able to approach the mercy seat of God. There is no other on earth, above earth or below earth by whom we must be saved. There is no need for an intermediary as we have access to the Father through his Son. Thank God he opened the way for us that there might be hope for those who believe on His name.
1Co 15:55 KJV O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
Jesus defeated death, hell and the grave; and those who trust on Him have the assurance that we also shall join with Him in the resurrection. For Jesus himself has stated: I am the resurrection. It is the hope of every believer to one day be resurrected in Christ Jesus. But resurrection power is still available to the Christian. No matter your need, you can still speak God's resurrecting power into that need. No matter how dire the situation, no matter how difficult it may appear to you, take it to God in prayer. Our Father loves the challenge of difficult problems. If He can raise His own Son from the dead, how much easier will it be to solve any problem you bring before Him. Seek to breathe new life into your situation and see what God can do. Happy Easter brothers and sisters.
I received two incredible gifts last year. The bayonet my grandfather carried during the second world war and the sabre my father received as a naval officer.

Heb 11:10 KJV For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
I love America, it is indeed the greatest country in the world. But this is not my permanent home. I'm just a pilgrim, posing through, heading for my heavenly home. While it is true what is going on in our country today is sad, it was prophesied to come to pass. We are living in the End Times. The world stage is preparing for the rise of Anti-Christ. What we see going on is merely preparation for seven years of tribulation prior to the second coming of Jesus the Christ. And make no mistake brothers and sisters, he is coming. During the pandemic, God has been preparing his faithful to be soldiers of the cross. To call on his name, and to rescue the perishing before his Son snatches His bride out of the earth. Take comfort dear ones, lift up your head, your redemption draweth nigh.
AOC is a compete buffoon. Echo if you agree
Dan 9:4 KJV And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;
Dan 9:5 KJV We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:
Before Daniel brought his petitions and supplications before God, he repented on behalf of his nation. He beseeched God to turn away his wrath from the nation that had strayed so far from it's God. Today, we as Christians are called to repent on behalf of our own nation. For the nation that turns away from God is turned into hell. Yet God assures us if we humble ourselves, and pray, and seek his face and then turn from our wicked ways; He would hear from heaven, forgive our sins and heal our land. There is still hope for America, but we the Body of Christ need to call upon the Lord on behalf of our nation.
Joh 16:33 KJV These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
In this day and hour we are living in, it is easy to despair. But the words of Jesus still ring true today. "In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." Jesus warned his disciples and through them warns us, that as we draw closer to the end times we will face increased tribulation; but we are to be of good cheer. Because the world hates Jesus, they will hate us too. But still we are called to love those who hate us and pray for those who despitefully use us. But we have every reason to be of good cheer, even in these dark times, because Christ overcame the world and we through him can also overcome the world.
Pro 14:12 KJV There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Jdg 17:6 KJV In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology holds the standards against which things are judged; from the standard inch to the standard second. When man has no standard by which to judge his own heart, then men will do that which seems right in his own eyes, and that way is the way of death. But God's Word is the standard that the church can cling to and allow it to make us more Christ-like. Then we will not be tempted to do what is right in our own eyes, instead we will do what God wills us to do. In these dark times, now more than ever, were need to look to Jesus for our answers and not to man. For the ways of men leads to death, but the ways of Christ is life abundant.
Rom 3:10 KJV As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
It is a common misconception that is propagated by the world and some Christians that people are inherently good. This is simply a lie. Man does not automatically choose to do that which is right. Even Christians who have been saved for years still wrestle with their old nature as their desire to do what they want to do is constantly at war with the will of God. Only when Jesus comes into our hearts and makes a change do we begin to desire to do what is right.
Heb 9:22 KJV And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
The bloody religion is not popular with the hip and trendy churches of today. Preachers today have no anointing, sinners are made to feel good about themselves instead of hearing that hell is a place every person is headed unless they repent. Sin cannot be covered, sin has to be wrenched out of the darkness and into the holy light of God, then and only then can it be dealt with. And the only thing that will satisfy the righteous judgement of God, is the shedding of blood. However, animal sacrifices will not suffice. Only the precious blood of Jesus can cover our multitudes of sin and make us white as snow and acceptable in the eyes of God. Nothing we do will ever please or satisfy God. Only what Jesus did.
And the skunk was soo terrible.
