When I was walking home from work the other day, I saw a dog run into traffic and get hit by a car.. The collision was so terrible, all a few bystanders and I could say was "WHOOOO!" ... This happened on an empty main street (Alondra) so you know the car was flying... The dog's neck was broken, but he was still alive - panicking .... He kept trying to get up and run, but because his neck was over his shoulder, all he could do was run in circles (tumbling and whimpering in the process) .... At this point, the driver just stood outside of her car, put her hands in her pocket and was waiting for him to die .......
The only thing that popped up in my head to do was PRAY... Now I'm not in the business of Praying for animals.. but looking at this dog die slowly in the street, I said "Lord, you said that you open your hand to satisfy the desire of EVERY living thing.. and in the name of JESUS, I ask that you heal this dog .... let your resurrection power flow through him... I decree and declare that this dog will LIVE and not die.. in JESUS name I Pray...." ... and before I could say "Amen", that dog's neck snapped back into place.. he stopped limping and running in circles - then he just took off running into this parking lot... and all I could say was "Thank you Jesus!" ... Then I started thinking, WOW.. God really answered Prayer concerning a dog lol ...... In Matthew 6:26, Jesus makes a comparison to us and animals then asks "Are you not of more value than they?" ..... If God will heal a DOG, do you really think he can't / won't heal YOU (reader)????
Mark 9:23 says "ALL things are possible to him that believeth" .... If you're believing God for your healing, I encourage you to continue in Faith... After this incident, I'm convinced that God can do anything .... and I hope that I've said something to convince you as well ... Stay encouraged, stay Prayerful ..... God bless!
HELL is the Wrath of God.. He's not showing this Wrath on us, but this Wrath has to go SOMEWHERE... And it awaits anyone who didn't accept Jesus ..... HELL is gonna be so terrible because God sent His Son Jesus to DIE for you, and you didn't accept it?? I put Him through ALL that for YOU, and you reject it?? ..... YOLO is a lie, we don't live once.. This life is not even our permanent destination.. How we live on Earth determines where we spend ETERNITY .... The definition of 'Save' means to 'rescue from harm and danger' .... Jesus came to rescue us from burning in Hell for ETERNITY ..... If a bird grabbed every grain of sand from the beach in his mouth and flew it around the entire world, that STILL wouldn't equal ETERNITY (disclaimer: Not believing in Hell won't keep you from going there).
There's no getting used-to Hell fire.. Some of us can't even take hot Water in the bathtub...... That's WATER ...... Hell fire is 10X Hotter than the FIRE on Earth ..... And every demonic spirit Jesus gave us power over here on Earth (Luke 10:19), will have FREE-COURSE to do as they please in Hell .... So you wont just be on fire, you will be Tormented, Depressed, Angry, fighting, molesting / molosted, etc. .......
Jesus came to SAVE us from all that! Romans 6:23 says "the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" .... Gospel means 'Good news' ... We were all destined for Hell, but the 'Good news' of Jesus Christ is that He came to Save us! .... If you want to accept what Jesus did for you on the cross, dying for your sins, giving you Eternal Life.. click here.
With so much evil happening around us, some might ask "Why doesn't GOD do anything to stop it?" .... But He can ask us the same thing ...... How many killers, thieves, liars do You know? ... Do you ever try to stop them from doing evil?? or even tell them what they do is Wrong??? ..... We get mad when ppl steal from us... but when we see people steal, we turn our heads and say "I ain't no Snitch" .. So now stealing is Ok??? .... I've heard people say "Stop Snitchin".. but when their loved-one gets Murdered, they want witnesses to come forth... That's a contradiction! .... Some people talk about Gang Deaths like Sports Statistics... When are You gonna tell that information to the police??? A family is Grieving and need closure right now.
"Evil prevails when good men do nothing" ...... All it takes for satan to win is for us to be spectators, on-lookers ..... When you see someone doing evil, PRAY for Justice.. If you get the chance, tell them what the Bible says about it... Don't just do Nothing!! .... If we see someone doing wrong, and we don't Warn them - if they Die in their Sins, their blood is on OUR hands! (Ezekiel 33:6)
Jesus gave us authority over ALL the power of satan (Luke 10:19)... Alot of us either don't know this, or are not even trying to exercise this authority .... It's well within us to stop evil, but many of us rather play the "blame game" ... God is calling us to accountability people!
Everyone's greatest desire is to feel Loved... OUR problem is that we're searching for it in the wrong places...... No one can Love us like GOD .... Love doesn't force Relationships.. If you chain your spouse down and force them to marry you, is it real Love? ... That's why GOD gives us "Free Will" .... GOD desires to have a Relationship with You, but He's not gonna force You... James 4:8 says "Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you"
GOD created us with a hole in our hearts that can only be filled with HIS Love... But because we Reject His Love, this hole is never filled .... Mankind Reject GOD's Love to the point we'd rather believe we came from "Space dust", than were created by GOD.. If my children thought of me this way, I know it would hurt ...... But Mankind Rejects GOD daily! We turn down Church invites, turn quickly past the "Church channel" .. GOD sees this and He STILL Loves us ... WOW
GOD gave His only Son to DIE for us! We have a hard time even giving away our last piece of food ....... O' how great is GOD's Love!!!! .... 2 Chronicles 16:9 says The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, searching for a heart that's perfect toward Him .... GOD knows what it's like to feel Love Abuse.. We Reject Him, yet He doesn't give up on Loving us, in hopes that someday we will Love Him back .........
I HATE Gossip! ..... The only time we should be sharing somebody's business, is if afterwards we say "...So keep them in your Prayers" or "...So let's pitch in to help them". Proverbs 20:19 says "Whoever goes about slandering reveals secrets; therefore do not associate with a simple babbler" ....... In fact, there are several Bible Scriptures that speak against Gossip - and here they are:
- Proverbs 6:16-19 says that sowing discord is an abomination to GOD ...... #DeathToGossip !!!
- Proverbs 16:28 - "A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends" ..... Gossip destroys friendships! ..... #DeathToGossip !!!
- Ephesians 4:29 - "Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers" ..... Gossip does not edify ... #DeathToGossip !!!
- Proverbs 26:20 - "For lack of wood the fire goes out, and where there is no whisperer, quarreling ceases" ..... NO Gossiper = NO Drama ...... #DeathToGossip !!!
- Proverbs 10:18 - "...and whoever utters slander is a fool" ... If you're slandering someone's name, by Bible definition, you are a fool! ...... #DeathToGossip
The next time we feel tempted to Gossip (or entertain Gossip), let's combat that urge with the Word of God. Gossip displeases the Lord and we only want to do those things that are pleasing to Him, amen??? ......... I love you (reader), God bless!
