“Put ye in the Sickle, for the harvest is ripe”.. tares, wheat ….and wickedness shall increase Revelaton 14, Joel 3.

    I’m in the Appalachian mountains vacationing, my internet isn’t working well and my word stopped working on me!   I’ve spent much time studying scripture in the last few days and have had many new revelations. I have lots to share, but I’m limited here. In the meantime, I wanted to show you something the Lord revealed to me…. so I’m going old school here- and I’m posting with crayons and markers- see below.  I just can’t keep this contained until I’m back to normal life- off the  snowy mountains….and as some of you may know, I’m not the artist, but I hope the message is clear.

     I’ve been studying the woman in the ephah in Zechariah 5 (after a scary dream about it- I’ll write in another post-sccccaaaary!). I’ve put a lot of study into that which ties into other studies I am doing in Revelation 19-when the Lord comes back with His army and Matthew 24:12- increase of wickedness and 2 Thessalonians.  I have asked the Lord many questions, maybe too many.  One thing I’ve been really concerned about is the increased wickedness that is spreading. The government statistics will show another story,  but the Lord has shown me how wickedness has filtered into everything- our homes, our music, our children, our schools-spreading like wildfire- like a weed over all the earth. We have made excuses for every sin and don’t even realize it. Even things I thought were innocent…  I was playing the wii dance 3 and 4 with my girls and I knew I had to turn it off and return it. It was so dark and the words were demonic, depressing. The words they were chanting to the dance were ungodly! satanic! and promiscuous! Is it so difficult to make a clean game or movie today?  My Cd player in my car broke so we had to resort to some weird back country music as we drove her.   I heard a song with a great beat “She makes me suicidal, suicidal” it’s so catchy,  pretty soon everyone is singing it, the next song was “hope to die, stick a needle in my eye”- I was fighting with my husband to turn it off,  then I turn around to see what my child is doing on her new ipod (another thing I don’t agree with- take a good look at it’s symbol) and she is playing a game with a bunch of demons chasing her as she runs to an idol! agh!  I deleted it and prayed

             “Dear Lord, please have my children despise the time on their ipods and anything else that takes them away from you, fill their heart with a desire for you” -He answered my prayer! No one has been on their ipods except to take a few pictures- hallelujah!!!

   So last night I was talking to the Lord about all the verses in my head, asking him about things Daniel and John were not allowed to write down, about the wickedness going to Shinar by those two stork winged women (ew! they sound like fairies), the increased wickedness,the wheat, tares, and how the Lord will return as described in Revelation 19. As I was talking and asking…. I saw this……

   I know…… what is it? Okay this is what I saw:   I saw the earth and over it was growing this dark, thick, strong, choking black weed or root. I was beginning to cover the whole earth. I could see it had something to do with powers in the sky/ air- as if through tv, internet and those type of things… this wicked root was growing at a rapid speed.  Suddenly, my thoughts were full of verses helping me to understand how this ties into the wheat tares when the command for the great sickle is called upon.(actually my pic came out sideways because I saw the weed spreading from the east to west…see the picture I have below.)

  Joel 3:13  Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision; for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
Rev 14:14-20 And upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having  on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, which had the power over fire, and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust the in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and cast it INTO THE GREAT WINEPRESS OF THE WRATH OF GOD. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and the blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse and bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
Revelation 19:13-  And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, and HIs name is called the Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, and that with it He should smite the nations, and He shall rule them with a rod of iron, and He TREADETH THE WINEPRESS OF THE FIERCENESS AND WRATH OF ALMIGHTY GOD.
Matthew 13:7-  And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprung up and choked them(see also Matthew 12-13)

(How did I see this? This wasn’t a dream or a place I was taken to- as in the past…it was different from my vision of the heart and the cross where I could see it like a movie screen before my eyes. This was, how can I explain it? In my mind’s eye as I prayed. I could see it as I was awake and praying. It’s understanding and scripture came into my mind as I looked on it and tried to understand what I was seeing.. This also happened to me with Revelation 19 two years ago- so I take the information the Lord gives me and back it up in scripture for understanding. I have a long way to go on understanding this, but I want to share the warning with you.)

    Maybe I’ve said to much- so much to explain- but here is the message I think the Lord wants us to know- BEWARE AND BE READY. Beware of wickedness and evil that is rapidly spreading.  Stay in the Word of God night and day so you will know which way to go. Delight in His words and His ways and do not fall into the current of the World. Keep yourself ready at all times – to be pure, holy, and without blemish, waiting for His return. His Wrath is full and ready to be poured.  The sickle is ready to pull out this evil weed that has spread and we are told when this happens, the blood of many will be spilled- so much you can’t even imagine. Stay true and stay pure for the day of the Lord is closer than it was yesterday……………………………………..

                       Attn: Parents— watch what your children are doing, what they are watching, what games they are playing, what music YOU are allowing in their hearts. They are the easiest target for satan to go after, and he has unfortunately, done quite a job on our youth. Many times we don’t realize the wicked things we bring into our homes. This is something the Lord has shown me also- that even I have brought things into my home before my children that are wicked and evil and I didn’t even know it. Anything that takes away from God is unacceptable for children. I’m going to clean house, I hope you do to.

 Be Careful…Be Careful……Be Careful…………………………….

 and remember:” In the world, ye shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” John 16:33

A vision of the Lord’s return – The day of the Lord – PRAY FOR THE LOST

Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt:  And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.  Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger Is 13:6-9


         Earlier this year, as I lay awake in the night, I saw a scene play out before my eyes. As if I were there, I could see a panoramic view of another land. I was not familiar with this place, the men dressed differently and the street and the people were in a place or land I was not familiar with-I knew it wasn’t America. I briefly mentioned this in a post a while ago, but today, the remembrance of it weighs heavily on me. I don’t know why, but it has been in my thoughts all day.

             “And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth”

   In the vision, I saw men standing, scattered throughout the streets. In front of me was one man in particular who stood closest to my view. I watched him and all the other men that were walking up and down the streets. Everyone was going his own usually way. Everything seemed fine…….. but suddenly I saw great terror griped everyman’s heart – a fainting, a trembling. They looked up and saw the Lord before them, they were so suddenly afraid. Without a word, only their sight, they knew it was the Lord and they were in terrible fear. The Lord was coming towards them (it seemed as if He was coming from the east) and each man was frantic as if they knew terror was ahead. Each one ran here and there, but had no where to escape. There was great fear and great chaos on the streets as men ran frantically away from the Wrath of the Lord. The vision startled me, there was so much fear! They absolutely knew the Lord was before them and they were instantly convicted and knew they should fear.

    At the end of the vision, I saw the men as they stood in fear. They were frozen, staring, looking up, trembling – there was no place to hide, nowhere to turn. Their hearts melted in terror.

          I wasn’t familiar with the clothing I had seen them wearing, nor the caps. The caps that I saw seemed to have a lot of colors woven in them.  The caps or hats I saw looked similar to those in the picture above. The man in front of me in the vision had a colorful  cap (tagiya-is the name, I later found out)  with different colors running vertically. I’m pretty sure I saw them wearing robe like outfits, but I am not sure. The caps or Tagiya I saw stood out clearly to me because I had never seen them before.

    Determined to find out more, I searched out the clothing I had just seen. The caps I saw are called tagiya, a cap worn by Muslim men/ as someone who adheres to Islam.

Today the taqiyah still serves, amongst other things, as a form of religious uniform, to identify oneself to the rest of the world as somebody who adheres to Islam. Taqiyah is a short, rounded cap worn by some observant Muslim men. Muslims wear the taqiyah to emulate Muhammad. The companions of Muhammad were never seen without their heads being covered. The taqiyah is also called a ‘prayer cap’ in English. Some Muslims wear the taqiyah during Jumu’ah  prayers at the mosque, and during daily salat (prayers) at home. For men, it is mustahabb, which means ‘commendable‘ or ‘seeking the love of God’, to cover the head during prayer. Some Muslims use a prayer mat during praying. Muslim men might wear a taqiyah during weddings -from Wikipedia

         This picture is similar to what I saw. However, the street was wide and there were crossroads. I saw hundreds and hundreds of men wearing these caps as they began to scatter and run in fear-  running to and fro- no where in particular because they didn’t know which way to run, there was no place to hide.

What is the Day of the Lord?

For the day of the Lord of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan, And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up, And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall,  And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures. And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day. And the idols he shall utterly abolish. And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of ? Is 2:12-22

Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt:  And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.  Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. Is 13:6-9

For this is the day of the Lord God of hosts, a day of vengeance, that he may avenge him of his adversaries: and the sword shall devour, and it shall be satiate and made drunk with their blood: for the Lord God of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the river Euphrates Jer 46:10

The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land. Zephaniah 1:14-18

Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the Lord’s anger come upon you. Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger. Zephaniah 2:2-3

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. Malachi 4″4-5

 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness . Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.2 Peter 3:11-18 (I think that was a warning that we can fall away from our salvation-despite what many teachers try to tell you)

        4-2012(I wrote this when I saw it)
I saw a great commotion among the people,
but not here
I saw a crowd of people in great terror
I saw men run in fear to their left
but they found they could not escape
I saw them turn and run to the right
Searching for a hiding place
but again there was no place to hide
they were without refuge and without safety
and had nowhere to turn.
I saw as I stood behind a great crowd of men
At the end they stood frozen in fear
Looking up, trembling- they had
nowhere to go, nowhere to turn
their hearts melted as they visibly saw
the indescribable power of the Lord.

      Pray for all those who are lost.  Live right so you will be light to them. All things are possible through Him and we know that each day is a sign of His patience…one more day, one more minute He waits for the lost to come back. Come back! Turn around! For the Lord your God is calling you. Repent of your wicked ways and Seek Him- You will surely find Him.  Jesus is the only way to the Father. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8
    Treat everyone with the Love of Jesus.

Why so downcast O my Soul? Put your hope in God. David’s Rx for the downcast soul.

Consider David’s prayer, have you ever felt like this?
(taken from Psalms 42,43,142,143)

My spirit is overwhelmed within me,
My heart within me is distressed.
My spirit fails!
O my God, my soul is cast down within me;

 For the enemy has persecuted my soul;
He has crushed my life to the ground;
He has made me dwell in darkness,
Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls;
All Your waves and billows have gone over me..
 I will say to God my Rock,
“Why have You forgotten me?
Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?”As with a breaking of my bones,
My enemies reproach me,
While they say to me all day long,
“Where is your God?”
Why do You cast me off?
 Do not hide Your face from me
 I pour out my complaint before Him;
I declare before Him my trouble.
 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
Then You knew my path.
In the way in which I walk
They have secretly set a snare for me.
 Look on my right hand and see
Attend to my cry,
For I am brought very low;
Deliver me from my persecutors,
For they are stronger than I.
 Bring my soul out of prison,
That I may praise Your name;

(This also sounds like a prophecy of Jesus- “And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground”- and that was after an angel has appeared from heaven to strengthened Him- Luke 22)

As King Solomon said :
 To everything there is a season:

A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away

Finding Comfort in your storm:
avid’s RX   (from Psalm 42-43,142-143)

  1. Remember the Lord: He is your strength. He is your help. He is faithful and righteous
  2. Meditate on all His works and His words
  3. Muse on all the Works of His hands
  4. Praise Him, enter His gates with thanksgiving.
  5. Cry out to Him
  6. Declare His Good works
  7. Pour out your heart to Him
  8. Lift up your hands
  9. Take Shelter in Him

       we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places Ephesians 6:12

We walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh  
                   The bible tells us that our battles are spiritual. Sometimes we think it’s a certain person trying to bother us or a situation that seems beyond hope. Nothing in your life is beyond hope. You are special in the eyes of the Lord. You matter greatly to Him. You have been placed here by the almighty God and He delights in you. Anything that goes against these thoughts is not from the Lord God, your Father.  In the spiritual world, if you could see it, you would see a demonic force trying to blow your light out.(Matthew 13- Parable of the Seeds explains this in more detail) It’s true. The Lord showed me how the devil puts wrong thoughts and words in our minds. They fly in exactly like an arrow- right into your mind, your thoughts. We either reject the incoming abominations or let it sit and roll it around in our mind until it eventually falls into our heart and flows out into our life.(Proverbs 4:23)

    Wrong thoughts? You don’t have to stew over wrong thoughts and wonder why you thought certain things. It’s most likely an enemy invasion. Bring all your thoughts captive to Christ. I imagine a great big treasure chest and I tell Jesus –I can’t handle all this. I mentally put all my thoughts and problems in the box, lock it and bring it captive to Jesus. I trust He takes care of everything for me and I find peace with that.

   “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled “ 2 cor 10:5

For the enemy has persecuted my soul;
He has crushed my life to the ground;
He has made me dwell in darkness,
Like those who have long been dead.
Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me;
My heart within me is distressed

King David had down days too. Wow, a man after God’s own heart had his own dark spiritual battles. We are not alone, reach out to the Lord and ask others to pray for you.

 David’s Prayer:

David tells the Lord;
1-How he feels, he pours out his heart and his complaint before him
2-How he remembers and recalls that God is able to save him
3-David tells the Lord that he hopes in Him and that the Lord is his help
4- David praises Him -He is altogether praiseworthy. Proclaims His praises even in the midst of His storm
5- Enter His gates with thanksgiving: He is trustworthy and all loving. David thanks the Lord for His great Works, answering him and helping him in the past. He remembers how God has helped him before.
6- David pleads:  Please hear me, O Lord. Do not turn away. Hear my prayer, O Lord, Give ear to my supplications! “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you,  and lead me along the path of everlasting life-Psalm 139
7- He remembers as he speaks and Prays God’s Promises in prayer: “The righteous shall surround me, For You shall deal bountifully with me”
8- David asks the Lord : Teach me to do your will

Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him
For the help of His countenance.
 I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all Your works;
I muse on the work of Your hands.
 I spread out my hands to You;
My soul longs for You like a thirsty land. Selah
 Answer me speedily, O Lord;
My spirit fails!
Do not hide Your face from me,
Lest I be like those who go down into the pit.
Cause me to hear Your loving-kindness in the morning,
For in You do I trust;
Cause me to know the way in which I should walk,
For I lift up my soul to You.
 Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies;
In You I take shelter.
 Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Your Spirit is good.
Lead me in the land of uprightness.
 Revive me, O Lord, for Your name’s sake!
For Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.
In Your mercy cut off my enemies,
And destroy all those who afflict my soul;
For I am Your servant(psalm 143)
I cry out to the Lord with my voice;
With my voice to the Lord I make my supplication.
 I pour out my complaint before Him;
I declare before Him my trouble.
 When my spirit was overwhelmed within me,
Then You knew my path.
In the way in which I walk
They have secretly set a snare for me.
 Look on my right hand and see,
For there is no one who acknowledges me;
Refuge has failed me;
No one cares for my soul.
 I cried out to You, O Lord:
I said, “You are my refuge,
My portion in the land of the living.
 Attend to my cry, for I am brought very low;
Deliver me from my persecutors, for they are stronger than I.
 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise Your name;
The righteous shall surround me,
For You shall deal bountifully with me (Ps 142)
In Your faithfulness answer me,
And in Your righteousness.
 Do not enter into judgment with Your servant,
For in Your sight no one living is righteous

(But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness)1 John 1:9

Cry out to God; yes, I shout.
    Oh, that God would listen to me!
 When I was in deep trouble, I searched for the Lord.
All night long I prayed, with hands lifted toward heaven,
    but my soul was not comforted.
 I think of God, and I moan, overwhelmed with longing for his help Ps 77

Hear the Word of the Lord:

 Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: but a good word maketh it glad.Proverbs 12:25

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.  For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.  So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothingJames 1:2-8

When I went through a trying time in my life, I held on to this verse in Romans: We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:3-4

Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you. The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues those whose spirits are crushed Ps 34:17-18 Duet 31:8

But you, O Lord, are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who holds my head high I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire.He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord. Psalm 3:3 Ps 40:1-3

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 2 Cor 1:4

Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad?I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again— my Savior and my God Ps 42:5

Fear not; you will no longer live in shame. Don’t be afraid; there is no more disgrace for you Is 50;4

No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn.This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,And their righteousness is from Me,”Says the Lord.Is 54:17

“I, even I, am He who comforts you.Who are you that you should be afraid of a man who will die, And of the son of a man who will be made like grass? Is 51:12 (This is a special verse to me. When I cried out in distress to the Lord- out of the heavens I could see this verse coming down to me – closer and closer until I was able to read it. Amen! God is good and He hears us.)

Cast all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” 1 Peter 5:6 Duet 31:8

This is my comfort in my affliction, For Your word has given me life Psalm 119:50

 And in that day you will say: “O LORD, I will praise You; Though You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me. Sing, O heavens! Be joyful, O earth! And break out in singing, O mountains! For the LORD has comforted His people, And will have mercy on His afflicted  Isaiah 49:13 Isaiah 12:1

 Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.  For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. Now may the God of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to Christ Jesus, Romans 15:5  Romans 15:4 Matthew 5:4 

There is no one like the God of Jeshurun (Israel), Who rides the heavens to help you, And in His excellency on the clouds.  The eternal God is your refuge, And underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, And will say, ‘Destroy!’ Deut. 33:26-27

The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. Ps 27:14 Ps 9:9

Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.  The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all Ps 34:17-19

Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength: Is 26:3-4 Psalm 147:3 Ps 55:22

 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.Isaiah 40:31,

 Everything is possible for him who believes.Mark 9:23

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

Dear Friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you.Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.The Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. James 4:10, 1 Peter 4:12, 5:7, 2 Peter 2:9

Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame. You are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you. Ps 25:3-5, Ps 33:22 James 4:8

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. May the grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.  

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.Therefore comfort one another with these words.Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak .Comfort each other and edify one another.1 Thessalonians 5:14. 1 Thessalonians 4:18 1 Thessalonians 5:11, Romans 15-16   John 14:27

Remember the Lord: He is your strength. He is your help. He is faithful and righteous
Meditate on all His works and His words
Muse on all the Works of His hands
Praise Him, enter His gates with thanksgiving.
Cry out to Him
Declare His Good works
Pour out your heart to Him
Lift up your hands
Take Shelter in Him

Using a bible verse? GIVE ME A BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          Ok, this is not in line with my usual posts, but it’s Christmas time and I’m overtired, exhausted and a little annoyed with everybody. I’m not perfect and it’s quite healing for me to vent in my writing. Maybe Ill delete it? So enjoy while you got it.
             I may lose some followers, I hope not, I don’t mean disrespect, but I won’t be silent when my Savior and His word are disrespected. I am usually silent when it comes to politics…it’s a touchy subject and everyone thinks they are right. Sure, we all are…right? I listen, I read, I consider and I pray.

             I have some Obama fans around me, one in particular voted for him as a thank you because she said Obama paid for her and her son to have completely new remodeled Kitchens- free. Hmmm and on the other side were the Romney fans who basically, as I heard from many if not all, who voted for Romney to get rid of Obama. Is there really any winning to this anyway? Whoever is president- I believe it is the Lord’s doing. I can respect that….


             Last night I tossed and turned in turmoil as I recalled listening to my president say a bible verse in reference to the recent horrific acts. My mind said, that’s a good thing…. but my spirit was in turmoil over it! How dare he! I almost vomited when I heard it, I couldn’t bear to listen anymore. Why would someone use scripture from a book they don’t believe in???????

        My president used a scripture from the bible and my child is forbidden to say the Word GOD in her school! I am not allowed to share my faith in public and we are completely forbidden to celebrate Christmas or Easter in our schools. Saying Merry Christmas is “offensive”. Graduation seniors are sued, attacked and ridiculed for using scripture in their graduating classes or forbidden to pray, yet he can slide by with a scripture…and it’s okay. What is up!

How dare he use scripture and

1- announce to the world that we are no longer a nation of Christians
2-applaud and agree to the horrific act of abortion- I was in heaven and I saw those babies! They are not globs of flesh- in the first weeks of forming the Lord God puts their spirit with in them. This is the sin of the shedding of innocent blood upon our land..it is an abomination and a curse.
3- poke fun and laugh at the Words of Jesus we know as the beatitudes : http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=IvnY8WY24bA
4-continue to take my Jesus and my God out of my schools, my prayers, my country.
5-say Jesus is not the only way(Wow, that video is MIA- gone, but I remember it well)
6-go against every word of God in scripture and rejoice in homosexuality that is abominable it the Lords sight. He knows this will weaken our nation, he knows this will weaken our Christian stance in America.

He continues to belittle and disrespect my God and His Ways. How dare he reject that my Jesus is the Savior and the Only way and then come out and pretend to use God’s word as if…………

As if you care
As if you believe
You may have fooled this nation,
But you don’t fool the Lord God
You have risen yourself so high in your pride
Without a word, it is written on your face

               And then come out proclaiming a bible verse! Give me a break!
I felt like my pearls were just given to a ………. And I really don’t want to disrespect the president, but let’s tell it how it is. He is who this nation selected, He is who the Lord has put over us, but I’m calling it out as it is.  I want my God to be proclaimed upon the mountain tops- I’m sick and tired of this nation mocking Him and His word.

Do you know what his actions say?
Using scripture in his speeches shows that he KNOWS we are Christian Nation
He knows God’s word will appease us because
We are a Christian Nation

And how do you weaken and destroy a Nation under God?
It’s written in the book….
Wickedness, pride, indulgence, idolatry, shedding of innocent blood, laziness and homosexuality
Yep, that sounds like us
Surely, without a doubt, these sins will destroy a nation
They are a curse upon the very ground we stand.
Sigh……..are my words for nothing….
Is there any turning back?
brimstone? Fire? Wrath? I wonder which it shall be….

Wth? What is he? He says one thing, then another! Just be honest. I wish he would just tell the truth and quit trying to make everyone like him – giving everyone their handouts, telling everyone what they want to hear. I pray the Lord will bless our leader, but don’t mess with my Savior and my God – that is just wrong.

  Go ahead! Take the commandments down! “Thou shall not Kill”- yes, how offensive is that! Take it all down! but don’t think anyone can cover all this sin up with a few verses…as if!

May God Unite us all in Jesus
You are called to be a different creation, not of this world
Are you different?
Can you be spotted out among the world as one of His?
The world may hate my beliefs, but I am not of this world.

 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked Galations 6:7
