First questions of the day:
 
When you stand before the Lord GOD, Will you be at peace?
Will you be excepted as a friend?
Will you hear these words; Well done, enter in to the joy of your master, you were faithful with a few things I will put you in charge of many things?
 
Day 3 of a few.
More; going over what the Lord had, has to say about us (the church) in Revelation 2 and 3
 
Revelation 2:13-17
“I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is; and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.
But I have a few things against you, because you have there some who hold the teaching of Balaam, who kept teaching Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit acts of immorality.
So, you also have some who in the same way hold the teaching of the Nicolaitans.
 
{ the teachings and doctrine of Balaam taught by Balak and those of the Nicolaitans are in the church even today.
They are deceptive, teachings,
a. One trait of false teachers in the church is that they attempt to turn Christian liberty into a “freedom” to be promiscuous.
b. The doctrine of Balaam teaches compromise, wanting Christians to forget they are called to be separate from the world and holy;
c. The doctrine of Balaam makes believers indistinguishable from the unbelieving world.
d. The person following the doctrine of Balaam is willing to compromise his or her beliefs for the sake of economics.
e. Their acts to enable sinful behaviors for personal gain or even participate in the sinful behavior.
 
In practical terms, the teaching or doctrine of Balaam is the view that Christians can or even should compromise their convictions for the sake of popularity, money, sexual gratification, or personal gain.
It’s the attitude that treats sin as “no big deal.”
the teaching or doctrine of Balaam is that Christians can’t and shouldn’t totally shun the presence of sinners or unbelievers.
 
But what the word of GOD says is that we are obligated to stand up for truth, righteousness and goodness whether it’s what others want to hear or not.
 
The Balaam and Nicolaitans also believed in Human sacrifice (that of young children was common.) }
 
3:16-17
Therefore repent; or else I am coming to you quickly, and I will make war against them with the sword of My mouth.
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it.”
 
{ Will you choose to stay deceived?
To fulfill the lust of your flesh, or will you humble yourself before the Lord repent of your sins and follow His commandments?
When Christ Jesus returns on the clouds of heaven will you be caught up with them to meet the Lord in the air?
Or will you have been so deceived you won’t be able to leave with Him?
Will be as one of those spoken of in Jude.
 
Jude 1:8-25
Yet in the same way these men, also by dreaming, defile the flesh, and reject authority, and revile angelic majesties.
But Michael the archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about the body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said,
“The Lord rebuke you!”
But these men revile the things which they do not understand; and the things which they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals, by these things they are destroyed.
Woe to them!
For they have gone the way of Cain, and for pay they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.
These are the men who are hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, casting up their own shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever.
 
1:14
It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”
These are grumblers, finding fault, following after their own lusts; they speak arrogantly, flattering people for the sake of gaining an advantage.
Keep Yourselves in the Love of God
 
1:17
But you, beloved, ought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, that they were saying to you,
“In the last time there will be mockers, following after their own ungodly lusts.”
These are the ones who cause divisions, worldly-minded, devoid of the Spirit.
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.
And have mercy on some, who are doubting;
save others, snatching them out of the fire; and on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment polluted by the flesh.
 
1:24
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever.
Amen. }

First questions of the day:
When you stand before the Lord GOD,
will you be able to justify your auctions?
Will you be able to justify your treatment of fellow believers?
Will you be able to quote from GODs own words that justification?
 
Day 2 of a few.
More; going over what the Lord had, has to say about us (the church) in Revelation 2 and 3
 
Revelation 2:9-11
“I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich),
 
{if we are a believer in and following of Christ Jesus, no matter how much money we may not have we are rich, richer than the one with all the money, our riches are in Christ Jesus, they are stored up for us in heaven.}
 
2:9 continued
and the blasphemy by those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.
2:10
Do not fear what you are about to suffer.
Behold, the devil is about to cast some of you into prison, so that you will be tested, and you will have tribulation for ten days.
Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.
 
{these words should bring comfor to those who go by the name Christian.
They DO bring comfort, to those who believe in and are faithful followers of Christ Jesus.
In Matthew 6:33-34 Jesus tells us:
“But seek first His (GODs) kingdom and His (GODs) righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.
In Matthew 6: 32 Jesus says:
“Your heavenly Father knows you need all these things.”
Yes, He is speaking of food and clothing; but relies if the Father knows you have need of food and clothing don’t you think He knows what ell you have need of?
Don’t you have faith in Christ Jesus that He can and will provide all you NEEDs?
If so, then quite committing idolatry and immorality, to get what you want.
rather than waiting upon the Lord for what you need.}
 
2:11
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes will not be hurt by the second death.”
 
{If you go by the name Christian, if you are a believer in and follower of Christ Jesus, you are the Church.
Will you overcome the evil in this world?
You can if your faith is anchored in the Lord Christ Jesus.}
 
Thank about it.

Still not sure where we will be laying our heads in a few weeks from now,
but know Father God knows, and that is good enough for me.
 
Will be spending the next few days going over what the Lord had, has to say about us (the church) in Revelation 2 and 3
 
Revelation 2:2-7
“I know your deeds and your toil and perseverance,
 
{Steady persistence in adhering to the words (commandments) of Christ Jesus}
 
and that you cannot tolerate evil men,
 
{do you put up with evil people in your life?}
 
and you put to the test those who call themselves apostles, and they are not, and you found them to be false;
 
{do you test the words spoken by the teachers in your church or the teachers you fallow online, tv or radio?
To you test them by the words from GODs?
Or do you just blindly follow because of who they are?}
 
and you have perseverance and have endured for My name’s sake, and have not grown weary.
 
{is this you?
have you steadily continued to adhere to the teachings of Christ Jesus?
Do you carry on in the will of Christ despite hardships and suffering?
To prove the words of Christ Jesus to be true?
Or have you become physically or mentally tired doing or teaching the word of GOD?
Do you grow tired, feel exhausted after spending time in church teaching or learning?
are you unable to wait patiently on the Lord?
are you unable to refrain from interfering with the timeline of Christ Jesus when you think His answer is delayed, or His timing is off?}
 
But I have this against you, that you have left your first love.
Therefore, remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand out of its place—unless you repent.
 
{is Christ Jesus as alive to you today as HE was the first day you asked Him in to your life?
Do you remember what Christ brought you out of.
From what sins you have been saved from?
Have you repented of your sins you have fallen back in to?
Repent of your daily sins. Repent.}
 
Yet this you do have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
 
{the Nicolaitans practiced idolatry and immorality,
Idolatry = the blind or excessive devotion to someone or something other than GOD.
Worship of false god’s, idols; images, or anything which is not God In this country there is worship of homes, cars, trucks, phones, laptops, computers, clothing, a hole sloe for inanimate objects made by mankind, movies and movie actors,even animals.
And all are made out to be a necessity but in reality, they are being worshiped.
And a majority of them lead many down the path of immorality.
 
In Matthew 5:27-28, Jesus takes the commandment
‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY’
To a hole new level, He takes it from not only the act but to our thoughts.
 
Matthew 5:27-28
“You have heard that it was said,
‘YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY’;
but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”
 
How much immorality do you allow in to your eyes and ears every day?
How long will you put up with it?
Each and every time you hear or see immorality it builds a bearer between you and GOD,
you can take down the bearer by repenting.
To repent is to remove and turn away, walk away from the sin and turn to GOD.
Take the time you spend in sin, turn and spend that time in the word of GOD.}
 
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
To him who overcomes,
I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God.”

Maybe this has all just been for me.
 
Don’t know how to be friends.
Don’t know how to study.
Don’t read that well.
Can’t spell worth beans.
Don’t always use the right words when speaking.
Am still a sinner.
Time spent with others is mostly wasted.
Time spent by myself is mostly wasted.
 
Don’t know how to be friends or make friends, have never really had a friend, except for my wife, have always been someone who sets alone, or in a group the one who doesn’t say much of anything.
 
Learned about the chain of command at a young age and that when you step out from under that chain you are uncovered, exposed and can easily be attacked.
 
That chain was:
Father God
Lord Jesus
Dad
Mom
me
 
At this time in my life is:
Father God
Lord Jesus
me
Wife
Kids
 
My responsibility:  
First; is to Father God and my Lord, Christ Jesus and to follow His precepts and commandments.
To love the Lord my God with all my heart, mind and soul, and to love my neighbor as myself.
 
Second; humble myself before my Lord Jesus, repent of my sins and seek His Kingdome and His righteousness.
 
Third; is to protect and provide for my Wife.
As Christ does for His bride the Church.
 
Fourth; is to live a Godly life, be available for biblical advice, insight and direction for my kids and now grandkids.
life to be sen daily and advice given when asked for.
 
The fifth; is to share the gospel of Christ with those Christ brings into my path.
 
Other than the above i have no purpose.
 
And at most of this i fell i have failed greatly.
 
My wife and i are now 69 and 70, have been together for over 50 years, both having the years caching up with us, not moving around that well, lack of physical stability, and are now looking at the possibly of being homeless in another month posably two.
We live in an area that is harsh in winter, can dip down to -20 for weeks, and windy.
So will be interesting living in our little truck canopy, in the wilderness, this coming winter.
Not enough invome to rent even a cheap place.
 
The LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.
Even though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death, i fear no evil,
for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.
Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And i will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
 
Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
 
What more could we ever need or want than to be in the arms of Jesus our Lord and savior.
The one who gave of Himself so that our debt of sin we could and cannot ever pay, has paid that debt for us.
The one we owe are all to, Christ our LORD Jesus.
The one who rose from the dead, victories over death hell and the grave.
The one who said
“I go and prepare a place for you, I will come aging and receive you to Myself, that where i am there you may be also.”
 
Come quickly Lord Jesus come.
 
We have no checking account nor worldly savings,
we have few worldly possessions,
we have but only a skimpy monthly retirement income,
and now it look as if in a month or two we will not have a home in this world.
But then for over 55 years i have said
“this world is not my home.”
 
Jesus said our needs will be met, so our trust is in Him.
 
Matthew 6:25-34
“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on.
Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not worth much more than they?
And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?
And why are you worried about clothing?
Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.
But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you?
You of little faith!
Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’
or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’
For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
 
Lord our lives are in your hands, we choose to trust in you.
Show us the path we are to go down,       Amen and Amen
 
This world is not our home!
Our treasure is in heaven!
Lord Jesus we need Your direction.
Holy Spirit teach us what we are needing to learn.
 
 
Thank you for your prayers.
out for now.

{{{ Christ Jesus knows we live in a world where Satan dwells, He is verry much aware of that.
But seems a lot of the time (most of the time) the church forgets that, and just excepts what shows up in our lives as being from GOD.
We are not to just go along with the things of this world, they belong to Satan.
We are to hold fast the name of the Lord, Christ Jesus, we are Not to deny our faith in Him nor His faith in us.
Not even when those around us may be killed or we ourselves may be looking at death due to our faith in Christ Jesus. who was killed among you,
 
Matthew 10:28
“Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” }}}

{{{ Are your deeds set towards the Lord?
Are your love and faith and service and perseverance set towards the Lord?
Are your deeds of late are greater than at first?
Or are you living off your past, thinking what you did when you first became a Follower of Christ will carry your through to His return?
 
We, each and every one who are followers of Christ Jesus should be living a life that each and every moment is set in the path the Lord has set out in His word for us to follow.
 
Matthew 22:37- 40
And Jesus said to him,
“YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’
This is the great and foremost commandment.
The second is like it,
YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.
On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”
 
In John 14:15 Jesus tells us
“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” }}}
 
 
{{{ The GOD of creation knows His creation.
He knows who is walking this earth and of those who is dead and who is alive.
So many in the church are dead, just a ghost of who they were created to be.
Church it is time to WAKE UP and strengthen that live from Christ that still remains in you. // To do so you need to spend time in the word of GOD, you need to spend time talking (communicating) with the Lord your God.
You need to be set in motion to find that narrow path leading to the small gate, and taking as many along with you to find it. //
Remembering what you have already received and heard from the word of GOD; keep it alive and operating in and through your life,
Repent of your lack of faith and concern,
repent of your willing ness to follow after the world and its loves.
Repenting of your sins, turning from sin and turning to the Lord your God. }}}
 
 
{{{ Christ Jesus knows when our deeds are towards our self or toward the world and its ways.
Just as He knows when our deeds are toward Him.
He knows the level of our straight no matter how little it may be, He knows if you have denied His name or if you are still faithful.
Christ our Lord knows all about you, your thoughts and your actions. }}}
 
 
{{{ He knows if you are attending church for other purposed then to learn how to live closer to Him, to learn how to fulfill your longing to find the narrow path that leads to the small gate.
Or if you are there for the social gathering, to make your appearance.
Or to fulfill an obligation to please others, so the rest of the week you can live in the world for the world and fulfill your own desires in life.
Our you hot or cold?
Cold or hot?
Will you be spit out or taken in? }}}
 
 
{{{ Are you one who loved Christ when you first excepting Him,
but over time that love has weekend and your love has gone back to the things and ways of this world.
Jesus straight out says repent (turn from what you are doing and are involved in and return to Him, for unless you repent and return to following after Him, He will remove you. }}}
 
 
These things are important.
We are to be like Christ our Lord, not just know who He is and How He lived when He was on earth in the form of a man.
This takes a heart change on our part, are we willing to obey His commandments?
Or our we to attached to the world and its ways?
 
Christ Jesus knows our thoughts as well as He knows our actions.
We are warned all through the scripters of how we are to live, but how many adhere to the words of GOD?
 
Why does the church follow more after the world and its ways rather than the words of the Lord our God.
We have been so programed to think we need more, that more is better.
Why is it when the world comes up with a new toy, we think we need to have it?
Why do we say something is from God when it is used to displease God?
 
Why when our Lord Jesus tells us to not be attached to the world or the things of this world why is it that every day, we strive to have more of it?
 
Our lives are to glorify Christ Jesus, to honor Him and to bring blessings to Him,
But the church the bride of Christ in America seems to want to glorify self.
 
As so many Followers of Christ around the earth are being persecuted, many put to death because they clam Christ Jesus as their Lord and savior, so many in America think they are persecuted if their internet goes down for five minutes, or if they have to wait more for an order of food when they go to a restraint.
 
Always thinking about self rather than others.
Complaining about any and everything that causes them any discomfort, and calling it persecution.
The America Christian is only now starting to see real persecution.
 
Our GOD has told us
“If the world hates you, know that it hated Me before it hated you."
As the Church, believers in and followers of our Lord Christ Jesus we are also told;
“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.”
 
Can you humble yourself?
Can you take the time to seek the face of GOD?
Can you turn from the wickedness in your life?
 
1John 1:8
“If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.”
 
It is time to figure out who you are in Christ Jesus.
It is time to seek the Kingdom of GOD and His righteousness,
It is past time to humble yourself before GOD and seek His face.
It is time to know who you are in Christ Jesus before you find out what real persecution is.
 
Matthew 10:22
“You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved.”
 
Matthew 24:9-13
“Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.
At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another.
Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.
Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.
But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.”
 
Something to not only think about but to make a choice about and then stand firm in your choice.
 
Chose this day who you will serve.
