A Sinner's Prayer                      

The tongue has no bones yet it's the strongest part of one's body. It can make the difference between life and death. Confessing one's sins with one's mouth and asking God's forgiveness in Jesus's name, it will be forgiven. Address and confess each sin outloud and ask God's forgiveness. All are sinners and all suffer not just for the sins one committs , bad thoughts, action or deeds but suffer from the sins of parents, grandparents and ancestors. God knows if the heart is truly sorrowful when asking His forgiveness.

Satan is real. He is a fallen angel (Rv 12:7ff) bent on seducing us, destroying us, and leading us to hell. Although we humans are very weak and stupid compared to Satan, we have authority over him by the power of Jesus (see Mt 10:1). In fact, Jesus has already irreversibly defeated Satan. "The strife is over, the battle done." All that remains is to place Jesus' enemies beneath His feet (Heb 10:13).

How could we ever lose a war we've already won? The devil's only hope is to confuse us so much that we don't know that he exists, that a war is going on, that he is the enemy, and that Jesus has already won. It seems impossible to convince anyone that they've lost after they've already won. But the devil is a master-liar (Jn 8:44).

Although the devil cannot perpetrate his evil works without our sins opening the door, "our battle is not against human forces, rather, it is against the tactics of the devil (Eph 6:12). Because of the devil, the evil in the world is much greater than the cumulative effects of mankind's sins. The devil is our ultimate enemy. God has given Satan power to do what he pleases with those that do not follow and obey His ways and commandments

Cloud "Face of Jesus"? No Way!

       This photo was taken by me on 7/07/07/7p.m.

       I ran this before but want to share it again

   

   As I was praying for my daughter who was hospitalized

   for months I notice a beautiful golden upsidedown bird

   shape cloud in the sky. First thing popped in my head

   was the Holy Spirit because this cloud stood there all the

   while I was praying. The thought came to me to get

   a photo with my new Easy-Share digital camera I just

   bought days before. I resisted the urge to get my camera

   since it was in the bedroom and thought the cloud would

   be gone by the time I went to retrieve it. I sat in my chair

   I continued to pray for our daughter to be well enough to

   come home.

   

   After going through several prayers I notice the cloud hadn't

   moved at all, so I figure I'll try it. It really surprise me the

   golden upsidedown bird shape cloud was still in the same spot.

   I stepped out on the patio and took a photo, then another

   and another. It was strange because this cloud stayed in the

   same spot till I snapped a photo, now it was fading fast. I

   notice a large cloud over my house. I didn't see anything

   in this cloud but I snapped three photos. When I went inside

   I checked my camera to see how the bird shape cloud came out.

  

   The first photo on camera screen was a face of Jesus. 

   I was surprise by this photo, looking at the cloud itself I saw

   nothing, now Jesus appears in the photo of cloud over the

   house. 

   Now 7 days later our daughter was release from the hospital.

         

       Upsidedown Golden Bird Shape Cloud as it was taken

        Golden Bird Shape Cloud photo turned up

       I do not believe the photos I took with the image 

       of Jesus is a sign from heaven but I do believe it is

       the works of the devil. Satan and his fallen angels

       can work miracles, they have all the same powers

       as those in heaven. Yet Satan and his fallen angels

       do answer prayers that are made to anyone other

       than God.  Prayers said to his mother(Mary) or father

       (Joseph) or any so call saints will be answered by

       satan and the angels that chose to follow him.

       In Exodus 20:5, it is not that God is jealous or envious

        because someone has something He wants or needs.

       5 says, “You shall not make for yourself

       an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on

       the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not

       bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your

       God, am a jealous God...” Notice that God is jealous

       when someone gives to another something that rightly

       belongs to Him.

       When a prayer is answered when praying to any other,

       say his mother Mary, people tell others and in return

       others pray to his mother Mary too. People everywhere

       are praying to so call saints or others taking away what

       is God's.   Praise and glory to God, it is only He one must

       ask and He who to give thanks, praise and honor. People

       are mislead by the ruler of this world over and over again.

       Satan rules the earth till the return of Jesus. Satan has

       already lost the battle and continue to take as many souls

       with him,

       Those of God's who continue to pray to others, and  

       unknowing they are going into the pit with him. It is to

       God we should address prayers and ask in the name of

       Jesus and they will be answered.

       

       Jesus is called God and Lord; KING of KINGS and LORD

       of LORDS; Jehovah; Emmanuel; mighty God; the true

       God; the Alpha and Omega; the Amen; "the I AM"; the

       word of God. He is the creator of all life and by Him all

       things consist. He is heir of all things and upholds

       everything by the word of his power. All power in heaven

       and in earth is His. His name is above all names to bow

       and confess His Lordship. All the fullness of the Godhead

       dwells in Him, and He has all devine attributes.

       He has the right and power to forgive sins, to raise

       the dead, to be the judge of all men, and will return in the

       clouds of Heaven with power and Great glory. He has the

       keys of hell and death. He is worthy to be loved, praised,

       adorned, obeyed and served by all of His creation.

       In another lies no greater love, neither is there salvation in

       any other: for there is none other name under heaven given

       among men, whereby we must be saved.

       Jesus was God the Son, He is from everlasting. Yet He chose

       to leave the beauty of heaven and die on the cross to save

       men from their sins. 

                                             God is awesome!

No Greater Love

            "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.

            Now remain in my love...

            My command is this: Love each other as I have

            loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that

            he lay down his life for his friends. You are my

            friends if you do what I  command."

Purpose On Earth

 

       We all have some kind of purpose on this earth.

       It's not to hurt people or tell them their worth.

       Everyone was put here with an equal chance.

       Take a look around you, take a good long glance.

 

       Some were meant to heal, and some to teach,

       Some  are used to build and some to reach.

       You may not know your purpose just yet,

       God will tell you when he knows you are set.

 

       Don't rush your fate, it has already been planned.

       And God will always be there to lend a helping hand.

       You will go through times that are ready rough.

       But you will always have someone when the going

       gets tough,

 

       Don't judge others, for when you do

       There is always someone else judging you.

       Think about things before they are said.

       Say your prayers before going off to bed.

 

       Take time just to sit and observe all things.

       A flower and it's petals, or a bird and it's wings.

       For when you just look at what is around,

       A new aspect on life could be what you have found.

 

       Live for today, live one day at a time.

       Live for yourself and for God, that's no crime.

       For when you do all these things to make your life great,

       You will find your way to the pearly white gate.

God Bless America

     Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask for

     Your forgiveness and seek Your directions and guidance.

     We know Your words says, "Woe to those who call evil

     good." but that is  exactly what we have done. We have

     lost our spiritual  equilibrium and reversed our values.

 

     We confess that:

     We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your World

     and called it Pluralism, moral pluralism.

     We have worshipped other gods and called it

     multi-culturalism.

     We have endorsed perversion and called it

     alternative lifestyle.

     We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.

     We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.

     We have killed our unborn and called it choice.

     We have shot the abortionist and called it justifiable

     We have neglected to discipline our children and

     called it building self -esteem

     We have abused power and called it politics

     We have conveted our neighbor's possessions

     and called it ambition

     We have polluted the air with profanity and

     pornography and called it freedom of expression

     We have ridiculed the time- honored values of our

     forefathers and called it enlightment

 

     Search us, oh God, and know our hearts today,

     cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Guide

     and bless the men and women who have been

     sent to direct us to the center of your will. I ask

     in the Name of your Son Jesus Christ. AMEN

Restoring Leadership Under God

    The earth has been under the influence of the ruler of this

    world," Satan". Spiritual leadership has both authority and

    responsiblity within the Body of Christ. When  that authority

    and responsibility are misshandled, leadership can bring

    confusion to the work of God in the earth.  Those who are

    believers in God are responsible to analyze the quality of

    their leadership and decied whether to accept or reject

    that leadship.

 

    Many leaders have taken advantage of their position and

    misuse the anthority given them. The fault belongs to

    leaders and also those being led. By continuing to accept

    such leardership, followers are condoning that wrongdoing.

    Believers share the responsible to judge whether that which

    is coming from their leaders is of God.

    The point is leaders and the followers are responsible. The

    blame cannot always be place totally on the leadership. If

    the leaders are involved in error and the followers are aware

    of it, the followers are responsible to do something about it.

    But those who continue to follow they too must accept a

    share of the blame. We should not judge their hearts but

    examine the words and deeds. Just listen to them and

    determine if their words line up with God's Word.

 

    We must restore the leadership under God back into our

    nation. The world has seen the works of evil and it will

    continue to grow under Satan's influence. We need Prayer

    back into our schools by having a moment of silence.

    Why wait for a tragedy to happen then people of all

    faiths turn to God. Wherever God is Satan will flee.

Mothers Do It All             

           This is for the mothers who have sat up all night with

           sick toddlers in their arms, wiping up barf laced with

           Oscar Mayer wieners and cherry Kool-Aid saying,

            "It's okay honey, Mommy's here."

 

            Who have sat in rocking chairs for hours on end

            soothing crying babies who can't be comforted.

          

            This is for all them mothers who show up at work with

            spit-up in their hair and milk stains on their blouses

            and diapers in their purse.

 

            For all the mothers who run carpools and make cookies

            and sew Halloween costumes. And all the mothers

            who DON'T.

 

           This is for the mothers who gave birth to babies they'll

           never see. And the mothers who took those babies and

           gave them homes.

 

           This is for the mothers whose priceless art collections are

           hanging on their refrigerator doors.

 

           And for all the mothers who froze their buns on metal

           bleachers at football or soccer games instead of watching

           from the warmth of their cars.

 

            And that when their kids asked "Did you see me, Mom?"

            they could say, "Of course, I wouldn't have missed it for

            the world," and mean it.

 

            This is for all the mothers who yell at their kids in the

            grocery store and swat them in despair when they stomp

            their feet and scream for ice cream before dinner. And for

            all the mothers who count to ten instead.

 

           This is for all the mothers who sat down with their children

           and explained all about having  babies. And for all the

           (grand)mothers who wanted to, but just couldn't find the

           words.

 

           This is for all the mothers who go hungry, so their children

           can eat.

 

           For all the mothers who read "Goodnight, Moon" twice a

           night for a year. And then read it again, "Just on more time."

 

           This is for all the mothers who taught their children to tie

           their shoelaces before they started school.

 

           And for all the mothers who opted for Velcro instead.

 

           This is for all the mothers who teach their daughters to

           cook and their sons to sink a jump shot.

 

           This is for every mother whose head turns automatically

           when a little voice calls "Mom?" in a crowd, even thought

           they know their own offspring are at home--or even away

           at college-or have their own families.

 

           This is for all the mothers who sent their kids to school

           with stomach aches, assuring them they'd be just FINE

           once they got there, only to get calls from the school

           nurse an hour later asking them to please pick them up.

           Right away.

 

           This is for mothers whose children have gone astray, who

           can't find the words to reach them.

 

           For all the mothers who bite their lips until they bleed when

           their 14 year olds dye their hair green.

 

           For all the mothers of the victims of recent school shootings,

           and the mothers of those who did the shooting.

 

           For the mothers of the survivors, and the mothers who sat in

           front of their TVs in horror, hugging their child who just came

           home from school, safely.

 

           This is for all the mothers who taught their children to be

           peaceful, and now pray they come home safely from a war.

           

           What makes a good Mother anyway?? Is it patience?

           Compassion? Broad hips? The ability to nurse a baby,

           cook dinner, and sew a button on a shirt, all at the same

           time? Or is it in her Heart?? Is it the ache you feel when

           you watch your son or daughter disappear down the

           street, walking to school alone for the very first time??

 

           The jolt that takes you from sleep to dread, from bed to

           crib at 2 AM to put your hand on the back of a sleeping

           baby?

          

           The panic, years later, that comes again at 2AM when

           you just hear their key in the door and know they are

           safe again in your home?

 

           The emotions of motherhood are universal and so our

           thoughts are for young mothers stumbling through

           diaper changes and sleep deprivation.... And mature

           mothers learning to let go.

 

           For working mothers and stay-at-home mothers.

 

           Single mothers and married mothers.

          

           Mothers with money, mothers without.

 

           This is for all. For all of us . . . . . Hang in there. In the end

           we can only do the best we can. Tell them everyday that

           we love them. And pray and never stop being a mom.

           To every mother I wish you a

A Rose For Mother           

                Another Mother's Day is here,

                Bringing joy and pleasure new.

                On this special day, Mother dear,

                I want to remember you.

 

                I cannot give you costly gifts,

                And I've told you this before,

                No matter what I give you,

                You give back much, much more.

 

                I'm giving you a pure, sweet rose,

                Gathered in the early morn,

                This rose you planted in my heart,

                The day that I was born.

 

                In kindly, loving thoughts of you,

                And with the faith you still impart,

                The rose I give to you today

                Is the love that's in my heart.
