First questions of the day:
Who guides your walk-through life?
Who do you allow to influence your choices?
Do you spend more time with GOD in His word, or with the world, worldly people, taking part in worldly thing?
Are your choices Godly or worldly?
 
Day 4 of a few.
More; going over what the Lord had, has to say about us (the church) in Revelation 2 and 3
 
Revelation 2:19-29 2:19
“I know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, and that your deeds of late are greater than at first.
 
{ our Lord Jesus knows who we are and what we do.
Does He know you for your love?
Mathew 22:37 and 39
“Do you love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. And you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
John 15:12-13
“This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.
Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.”
Do you love the Lord your God?
Do you love your neighbor?
Are you willing to give your life for a friend?
Don’t let that scar you from loving your neighbor, yes it literally means your life, but i believe it goes far beyond that.
Are you willing to give of your time?
Are you willing to give from what the Lord your God has given you?
Think about it. }
 
2:20
But I have this against you,
that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.
 
{ do you tolerate jezebels in your life?
Jezebel refers to a woman who is regarded as evil and scheming, a bold and vicious, one who is cruel and immoral.
A woman who lives a life that worship false gods, and connives others into do the same.
A shameless impudent scheming manipulating woman, a woman who lives in adultery and draws others in to her way of life. }
 
2:21-23
I gave her time to repent, and she does not want to repent of her immorality.
Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds.
And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds.
 
{ Harsh NO. Just YES. The Lord will give you time and opportunities to repent but if you are not willing to repent and turn from your sins, He (the Lord) will deal with you. }
 
2:24
But I say to you, the rest, who do not hold this teaching, who have not known the deep things of Satan, as they call them I place no other burden on you.
 
2:25
Nevertheless, what you have, hold fast until I come.
 
{ you have faith in our Lord Christ Jesus?
Have you turned repented and turned from your sins?
Are you living to love the Lord Jesus?
Are you loving the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind?
Or
are you still tolerating the influence of the jezebels in your life? }
 
2:26-29
"He who overcomes,
and he who keeps My deeds until the end,
TO HIM I WILL GIVE AUTHORITY OVER THE NATIONS; AND HE SHALL RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON, AS THE VESSELS OF THE POTTER ARE BROKEN TO PIECES, as I also have received authority from My Father; and I will give him the morning star.
 
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
 
{ think about it. Call yourself a Christian, you are the Church. }

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.
