This was sent to me in an email today thought i would pass it along.

“…But Abram said to the king of Sodom, 
'I have raised my hand to the LORD, 
God Most High, 
the Possessor of heaven and earth, 
that I will take nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, 
and that I will not take anything that is yours, 
lest you should say, 
“I have made Abram rich…” ”
Genesis 14:22-23 
The Bible says, "The righteous man walks in his integrity," 
and in this passage, we see Abram doing just that. 
He believed the Lord and lived out the claims of his faith. 
How do we come by such a virtue? 
Integrity should certainly be taught in the home, 
but it becomes solidified through experience. 
 Abram was returning from a recent battle and two kings came out to greet him—kings who represented two opposing ways. 
The king of Salem bestowed sustenance and blessing while the king of Sodom offered a deal with quick results and promised wealth
(Genesis 14:17-21). 
Abram could have reasoned that Sodom's offering was the means of God's blessing. 
Yet he understood the danger of depending upon external things that can be seen and touched, 
but must eventually yield to time and return to the dust. 
 Abram's integrity was strengthened as he chose to rely upon the "Possessor of heaven and earth" rather than men. 
He believed God was faithful and had no need to take what Sodom offered, not even a thread of a sandal strap! 
 The temptation of the immediate rewards of man in place of God's provision continues to challenge believers today. 
We would all do well within our homes and the church if we followed Abram's refusal of carnal means and methods. 
By the grace of God, may we learn to rely on Him alone, for His glory and our blessing. 

{{  made me thank of all those who took money from the Sodom of America when things looked to be a little tuff. and now it is heard to find anyone who is willing to work. the handout was just to convenient of a trap for many and now they have become week. And is putting a burden on the rest of the country. 
Something that looked to be free at the time but has ended up costing you more than you could have ever imagen.  }} 

the handout was just to conveniat of a trap for many and now they have become week.

At least think about it. 
do you live a life with virtue and integrity? 
or are you willing to be owned by anyone offering you a quick fix? 
Are your possessions external or eventually will they yield to time and return to dust? 
In the times we are now in these are Valid questions. 
Where will you be standing when Christ returns? 
grasping to the world, for it to take care of you? 
Or holding to the gifts the Lord has so graciously offered you? 
Your soul your choice. 
Heaver or Hell? 
think about it

The next on slot of attacks on the population of the earth is taking place right before your eyes.
 Are you even aware of it? 
Are you paying attention? 
First they report on a balloon, (that now we know was made with parts made in the US government)and with in a day we went from balloons to UFO’s and the talk of extratropical. 

The world economic forum stated they needed to create a global crises to draw the population together, one that will cause panic and fear in all, the same group that has stated “you will own nothing. And be happy.” The same group that stated “never let crises go to waste. Even if you have to create it.” These are the people who have not been voted in to a position, they are self-elected. 
Their desire is to eliminate 2/3 rd's of the world population, to be in charge of everything and to control every aspect of your life. 
I have no doubt that there are things flying around out there but they are not little green men from another planet, they are satanic beings. 
They will be used to create fear in the masses, they need there to be great fear to draw the population together, with coved they proved they can manipulate the masses to follow even the dumbest mandates. Even to the point of ruining the economy, and taking a shote that has been shown it killed so many people so far. 

 As a people we are all under attack, we are at war and have been from the moment Christ rose from the dead. 
The thing is when Christ rose from the dead, 
He did it victories over death hell and the grave. 

As a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, we have nothing to fear, if you have excepted the free gift of salvation from Christ you have no reason to fear anything this world can do to you, your foundation should be Christ Jesus. 
Jesus has told us in His word that He will be faithful to us even unto death. 
(meaning --- if you put your trust and faith in Him He will never leave you nor forsake you, even if they kill your body, Christ will take care of / protect, your spirit.)

So don’t get caught up in the deception and fear that will be going around, but rather hold tight to the Lord Jesus Christ, put your faith and trust in Him and Him alone. 
A one world government, a one world money system and a one world religion are inevitable, we are told that in the bible. 
But falling for the deception and being filled with fear,
that is your choice, 
don’t be deceived. 
put your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved.

Mark 4:40-41 
And Jesus said to them. 
"Why are you afraid?      Do you still have no faith?" 
They became very much afraid and said to one another 
"Who then is this , that even the wind and the sea obey Him?" 

Are you afraid of Jesus? or do you have faith in Jesus? 
you should fear the Lord and what He can do, for He is the creator of all things (even you) and has the authority to do as He wills with all things, (even you). 
Or are you afraid because you do not have faith in Jesus, the Christ, because of His power and authority over all things? 
It is time to chose what side you are going to live on the side of faith in Christ or the side of the evil one and the world. 
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. and chose to place our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, even un to death. 
Think about it what side are you going to end up on.
To be saved is a simple thing, 
but yet can be the hardest thing one would ever do, 
for it is the simple things that can trip you up. 

Man try’s to make thing complicated so that others thank highly of them when they teach or explain thing, 
To be saved is simple; admit the fact that you are a sinner. Confess it. Turn from it. Ask the Lord Jesus to forgive you. Put your total faith in Him, and obey His words. 

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved.
The Jesus who was born of a virgin, 
The Jesus who was crucified on a cross, 
And the same Jesus who came back to life three days later.
The Jesus who fulfilled all the prophesies of His coming, death and reresection.
The Jesus who is the one true King, the Lamb of Father God who was sacrificed for you so that you might live.
The Jesus who stands at the door of your heart knocking and weighting for you to ask Him in.

Yes it is the simple things that man has a hardest time with.
Ask Him in, repent of your sins, chose to place ALL your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and obey His teachings the words of God, the Holy Bible.

Yea you read this but now take the time to do something about it before you run out of time,
for once the trumpet sounds and the return of the Lord comes,
for once He returns it will be to late.
What do you have to loos by repenting and turning from sin and asking the Lord Jesus in to your life?
Answer an eternity in hell.
What do you have to gain? An eternity in paradise with your creator.
Yea pretty simple;
Turn or burn, Fly or fry. The choice is yours and yours alone.
There will be many in hell who will finely call on the name of the Lord to save them,
but it will be to late.
Think about it.
Today started with a disappointing situation, but we move on. 
Finally got in to my journey, have been drawn to Matthew 5,6 and 7 the most open and detailed teaching of Christ Jesus Him self The Sermon on the Mount: starts with what is known as 
The Beatitudes 
 ¶When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up on the mountain; and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him. He opened His mouth and began to teach them, saying, ¶“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 
 ¶“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. 
 ¶“Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth.
 ¶“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. 
 ¶“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. 
 ¶“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. 
 ¶“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. 
 ¶“Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 
 ¶“Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 
“Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. 

 This is what i gathered from what are called the Beatitudes I am to be gentle, merciful, a peacemaker and pure in Heart, I am not to become enraged, anger or worried when others insulted or persecute me. 
 If i can learn to live in this manner the Lord will bestow upon ne several blessings, 
 So the question I must ask myself, am i any of these things. 
Answer: With most of the above I would have to admit no I am not, looking at my life and the way I treat, react or respond to others I would have to say no, 
except for one i don't fear man for man can not condem the spirit to hell, 
they can only do damage or bring about death to the body. 
This world is not my home! 
 By honestly looking and seeing this i see it is my choice to be gentle, merciful, a peacemaker and pure in Heart or not and it is my choice to be enraged, anger or worried. 
Yes these are things i need to work on. So today i chose to be gentle, merciful, a peacemaker and pure in Heart and to not choice to be enraged, anger or worried. 
 Holy Spirit i ask for your help in changing my attitude, 
it is my choice and i chose to be gentle, merciful, a peacemaker with those who come into my life and to live my life by being pure in Heart and i chose to not choice to be enraged, anger or worried but when others my treat me in a unbecoming or aggressive way but rather instead give them, the situation and my feelings and attitudes to the Lord. 

 At this point the Holy Spirit directed me to; 
1st Corinthians 13    The Excellence of Love 
 ¶ If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. 
 ¶ Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 
 ¶ Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love. 

 These words were not directly spoken by Christ Jesus but were gathered form the life of Christ Jesus and presented to Paul the disciple or apostle of Christ Jesus for him to send on to the Church at Corinth, in reality it has been sent to the Church as a whole that means to the Church of today no matter where you are. 

 What was made perfectly clear to me is that love is an action and that as an action it makes it my choice, my choice to love or not, it was also shown to me that there are times i choose not to love and that that comes out of selfishness on my part. 

 For no one makes me not love except myself, it is my choice so i will take each action of love and practis it daily.
At 60, he sat on the bench alone, knowing he had wasted his life on the things of this world.
But after placing his faith, trust and hope in the Lord Jesus Christ, peace filled him, and he knew he would never be alone aging. 
Now it was time to start living.
When will you chose to fallow Christ and live?
