The reality that you exist in right now

And YOU… were created by Him.
He owns you too… all of you.
He has power and control over

Sure, you have free will to do as

“”The word is near you, in your
mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which
we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord
Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from

unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made
unto salvation.” (Romans 10:8-11)
DO NOT TRUST IN RICHES.
put your trust in the One who really owns those riches –
Put your trust in the One who made those riches…
One who holds the entire universe together
so that those
riches can even exist!
God owns the gold… and the silver…
they are His.
They come from the earth that God has made… and He owns it all.
He made it, and He sustains it, and He
can take it away anytime He pleases.

And who is this God?
The God of the
Scriptures, the Bible.
The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,
the Holy One of Israel, the great “I AM”.
He is the burning
bush in the Old Testament,
and the One who gave the ten
And He came to this earth as a man to deliver
us from His judgment.
His name – Jehoshua, or Jesus;
Immanuel: God with us.
Trials, troubles, and sufferings…
plow up the soil of our heart.
Then just at the right time,
God will drop in a truth, a Bible verse, “The seed” into our
heart, so that it will grow, and bear fruit. Perhaps this is
a reason God doesn’t always deliver us from a trouble
right away. He allows the trouble to plow us up so that the
words He gives us will be planted deep. So take
some comfort in troubles knowing that the Master Farmer is
doing a good work within the soil of your heart,
and that it will benefit you and His kingdom in the long
"For this reason he was
hired, that I should be afraid and act that way and sin, so
that they might have cause for an evil report, that they
might reproach me."
We as Christians need to be so careful
when it comes to taking in advice, suggestions, or ideas. We
need to think ahead to where those things lead, we need to
look down the road and see what the final outcome is of
those things if they are carried out. If somebody gives me a
suggestion to do something, I need to stop and think as to
whether or not this something might lead me into some kind
of sin, because if it does, I should not go down that path.
If I do, I will not only hurt myself, but hinder the Gospel
too. For every Christian that acts in unchristian-like ways,
it just gives Jesus a bad reputation. We are called to
represent Christ, we are ambassadors for Christ (2
Corinthians 5:20), and our lives should reflect that,
otherwise we can turn people away from Christ, which is not
good! So let us all be very careful and analyze before we
act, and make sure what we are going to do will not lead us
into some kind of sin that will cause the world to have an
evil report against GOD and cause reproach to come upon us.
Ban assault rifles? Ban guns? Really?
When people want to kill people… they
will kill people…
with whatever they can.
Banning any kind of guns won’t make any
difference. Criminals will just use some other means:
If you ban assault rifles…
they will use handguns…
If you ban handguns…
they will make bombs…
if you ban bombs…
they will kill people with poison…
if you ban poison…
they will kill people with knives…
if you ban knives…
they will kill people with bats…
if you ban bats…
they will kill people with forks…
if you ban forks…
they will kill people with stones…
if you ban stones…
they will kill people with their bare hands…
if you cut off their arms…
they will kick someone to death…
if you cut off their legs…
they will find someone else to kill you.
Evil can be very crafty… and can be very
at finding different ways of doing things… so:
The best defense… is a good offense.
Keep good people armed, always, and evil will be kept in
It’s the same with the human body… a good
healthy immune system keeps disease in check, because
disease never sleeps and is always working against the body
to destroy it. Your immune system is always keeping disease
in check. And when it is working well and properly, you have
good health. and when it’s not working properly, you get
And if it’s really not working well, you can die.
To take all guns out of the hands of good
upright Americans would seriously damage Americas immune
system and make it susceptible to disease and death.
There is no one like you.
You are unique and completely
different from everyone else – one of a kind. GOD made you
that way. Just as there are so many different kinds of trees
in the world, and yet no two are identical, even within the
same species, so it is with you. There is a glory to every
tree and every tree has it’s specific functions, purposes,
and environment for which GOD created it. There is a different glory to
And so it is with you. GOD has placed upon you an incredible
value nobody can take away.
There is an excellent thing to do before
the LORD, and that is to deliberately stop everything your
doing, to completely ignore all your burdens and anything
else on your mind…. and to drop it ALL and praise Him. There
are angels around the throne of GOD singing praises to Him
24/7.... Yes, RIGHT NOW as you read this. And there are the 4 living creatures who are before
His throne saying,
“Holy, holy , holy,
Lord God Almighty,
Who was and is and is to come!”
So why not join in? Right now? So why not drop
everything and join in with the angels, the 4 living
creatures, and the entire host of heaven who are around His
throne exalting Him and giving Him glory right this moment?
Even if it’s just for a few minutes… try it.
Good things always happen when you praise
Overcome sin by spending time

Draw near to Him
He will draw near to you.
Exalt Him above all else
spend time with Him.
