 Isaiah 5:20
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!


Inverting Good and Evil led directly to the first SIN and to the human weakness of repeating that SIN again & again & again.  You see satan labelled Good-(obedience to God-a restrictive evil) .  Then he labeled (evil-disobeying God-an unmitigated good). 
Wow, how little things have changed particularly in matters of sexual perversions, greed, and violence.
The Truth is “NOT” a religion, “NOT” the right denomination, “NOT” the teachings of some great man or woman, a body of knowledge, “NOT” a deep philosophy, the correct concept or a set of laws or governing principles. The Truth “IS” a person (Jesus) who can only be known through a deep, intimate personal relationship. You will NEVER know the Truth until "The Truth" becomes your life and your life becomes His.   
John 15:7 - If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
John 15:6 - If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;”
Truth requires “Absolute, Total Surrender” to the Son of God.

Reign In Glory


Psalm 27:4 - One thing I have desired of the Lord, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the Lord, And to inquire in His temple.

While we are here, in the earth the Lord is with us, and when we are called away we are with Him. If we endure - then we shall also Reign with Him.
(Rev. 20:6)
Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall Reign with Him a thousand years. There is no separating the disciple from His Savior. They are one, and they always must be one: Jesus cannot be without His own people, for He would be a Head without a Body. Whether caught up into the Air, or sojourning here, we are with Jesus; and what can separate us from His GLORY?

NO MATURITY WITHOUT PATIENCE

  

There is No Maturity without Patience? And just as there is no maturity without patience, there is No Patience without Trials! Patience is one of the rarest virtues for a reason - it's hard to cultivate. So, why do you think God made "Be Patient" a command - even a priority - for those who Trust In Him? You will never be a mature saint without Patience, so don't waste that trial that is presently molding you - rather, you must gain from it! There will be no opportunity in heaven to learn or to show the spirit of patience and longsuffering.
If you are to Mature In Patience, It Must Be Now. Instead of asking the Lord to take you out of your circumstance, you ought to be praying, "Lord, use this in my life to make me more like You. Teach me, Lead me, and guide me through this."
"Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that The Testing Of Your Faith Produces Patience. And let patience have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."
James 1:2 &12         

HEAL THE LAND

2 Chronicles 7:14
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and PRAY and seek My FACE, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and HEAL their LAND.

SPIRITUAL WARFARE - HALLOWEEN


We are at a crossroads today In Christianity and we have decisions to make – it’s one or the other.  Halloween signifies DEATH – Not Fun - Not Life.
We tend to overlook the reality of Satan worship, for it is becoming more and more open and accepted. There are real witches, real spells and real rituals.
It isn’t, as many have said, a matter of motive – “Oh, I don’t  look at Halloween that way.”  I contend that it doesn’t matter how YOU look at it.  It does matter How God Sees It.  Our culture and society is in a constant state of change, yes, but God’s Word Never Changes:
As our world grows more secular every day and God and the Bible are being evicted from every social institution and even the hearts and minds of men, what should our reaction be. Stand for what is right and if you have children, protect and teach them to stand against the pathway to spiritual compromise. Have nothing to do with the occult or anything that dishonors God and glorifies Satan.
Prayer: Prayer is not preparation for battle. Prayer IS the battle. We are commanded to pray without ceasing. Learn to pray with power. When we prevail in prayer, Satan is defeated, miracles happen and people turn from the power of Satan to the Power of God.
The Bible tells us in 2 Corinthians 10:4 that our weapons are not carnal but MIGHTY in God for pulling down strongholds. And that's what we do with prayer. As much as this makes many Christians uncomfortable, spiritual warfare is essential in our walk with God. The truth is a spiritual realm does exist and in that realm there are demons that want to destroy us and our loved ones. We can battle against the demonic realm with God's Word and prayer.

Wise Relationships - FRIENDS


“When certain people continue to bring nothing but drama to the table. 
 It's time to let them eat by themselves.”
Solomon emphatically stressed the importance of our associations when he said,

"He who walks with wise men shall be Wise, but a companion of Fools will be destroyed." You must be discriminating in your relationships. If you build relationships with wise people, you'll become wise. But, if you hang with the wrong people, destruction is inevitable.
 Not everyone can be your friend. If someone has qualified for your friendship, indeed you should never abandon him or her. But you must ensure that you are not calling people friends when they bring only drama, and continual wrongdoing. 

 The Psalmist said, "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.  2: But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.  
Start NOW, take stock of your friends today and remove those who have disqualified themselves? Allow room for God to bring into your life those who will become an asset to you in love, support and reproof, and experience the stability of lasting relationships.

I WILL DO IT - ANYTHING


If You Shall Ask Anything in MY Name, “I WILL DO IT”. (John 14:14)

What an Awesome Promise!  Anything! Whether large or small, all my needs are covered by one word of promise (ANYTHING).
What a Wise Promise! We are to always ask in (His Name) the name of Jesus.
 While this encourages us, it also honors Jesus.  
The Lord Teaches an Instructive Prayer! You cannot ask for anything to which you cannot put Christ's Hand and Seal. 
We dare not use the Lord's name to a selfish or willful petition. You may only use the Lord's name to prayers which He Himself would pray, if He were in your case.

It is a high privilege to be authorized to ask in "The Name of Jesus" as if Jesus Himself asked; but our love for Him must never allow us to set that name where He would not have set it.

ON OUR KNEES


Deut:4:7: For what Nation is there so great,
who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD
OUR God is in  All Things That WE Call Upon HIM For?



ALWAYS THE RIGHT CHOICE


Holding to your convictions in Jesus Christ is not always a easy choice, even though it is Always the Right Choice.
When you try to hold on to the world and to Christ at the same time, you always get
 The Worst of Both Worlds and the Best Of None.
Walking by Faith being true to Christ is a decision you have to make every day.
It is my prayer that it will be the decision you make!
By Faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;
  Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
--Hebrews 11:24-25

CONSIDER IT ALL "JOY"

When difficult things come into our lives, we often wonder why or [why me]. What we must do first in prayer is distinguish between tempting and testing. Why? Because Satan Tempts; God Tests. Tempting is for our failure and destruction; Testing is for our Victory making our faith stronger. Testing will reveal to you where you are in terms of your faith as God already knows whether or not we will pass any given test. It is as we go through the fire of testing and trial that we will be strengthened, sanctified, and purified. James 1:2-4 emphasizes the sanctifying and strengthening results of testing when it says, "My brethren, count it All Joy when ye fall into divers temptations; 3: Knowing this, that the trying of your Faith Worketh Patience. 4: But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be Perfect and Entire, Wanting Nothing. "

It is then imperative that we discern between TESTING through various TRIALS and the Tempting of the Devil.
When God tests us, He wants us to succeed. He wants us to see that our faith is real and that it is refined by fire. Know this, that God doesn’t put us through a refining process for no reason. He is not malicious or desiring to see us suffer through trial. Just as a goldsmith only puts the metal into the fire in order to get rid of impurities, so is the way of our Lord.

The Lord test's us so that we can see where we need to improve. We can be sure that our Father crafts each test specifically to show us individually and personally what our defects and impurities are so that we can be sanctified and changed
The bottom line is that the Lord’s testing is to reveal just how much we believe His Word and promises to us. Why? Because the Lord is good, faithful, and true, knowing that we will end up better than we were before. Romans 8:28, God causes all things to work for our good, even if for a short time, it doesn’t make sense, it hurts, or it is difficult.

We will be stronger for it, so, as James so accurately stated, [Consider It All Joy].
