JESUS is the door

9 I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.

growing old in Christ JESUS

heard
the ancient paths

16 Thus says the LORD:
“Stand by the roads, and look,
and ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way is; and walk in it,
hand find rest for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’

The Ancient of Days Reigns
9 “As I looked,

thrones were placed,
and the Ancient of Days took his seat;
his clothing was white as snow,
and the hair of his head like pure wool;
his throne was fiery flames;
fits wheels were burning fire.
10 A stream of fire issued
and came out from before him;
a thousand thousands served him,
hand ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him;
the court sat in judgment,

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2001). (Da 7:9–10). Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

9 He said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be refined, but the wicked shall act wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but those who are wise shall understand.

The Scroll and the Lamb
5 Then I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne ha scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?” 3 And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it, 4 and I began to weep loudly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it. 5 And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.”
6 And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. 7 And he went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who was seated on the throne. 8 And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, reach holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. 9 And they sang ua new song, saying,

“Worthy are you to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation,
10 and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God,
and they shall reign on the earth.”

11 Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice,

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might
and honor and glory and blessing!”

13 And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying,

“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”

14 And the four living creatures said, “Amen!” and the elders fell down and worshiped.

my ever present God

Do you hear it.

Words to a song.

A new song. 

One to dance to with JESUS.

God fills my life with wonder every single moment of my life. I cannot express the deep deep love that comes from this understanding and being totally and absolutely surrounded only by the LORD God Almighty. 

All the time.

If you asked me to stop writing.

I could not.

If you asked me to stop singing.

I could not.

If you asked me to stop dancing.

I could not, either.

If you asked me to stop studying Scripture.

I could never do that at all.

If you asked me not to hear God’s voice.

It would be impossible.

Not to feel HIM.

HIS touch.

I do suppose that what you spend the most time doing you eventually become very good at. 

The men and women of God spent so much time with the LORD that all they could think of and do, was all God’s will for them. 

I feel exactly the same.

thoughts

I’m going to take a stand. I’ve studied Scripture for years and years and years from those who are teachers of Scripture and I’ve examined Scripture through and through and through and will do so for the rest of my life. 

Well, the consequences of sin is death and sin separates us from God. 

Indeed we are covered by the blood of the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world but there are ramifications and consequences to sin. Sin is turning of our backs away from God and one day, as sin drives a person farther and farther from the LORD. 

You know the verse about the separation of the sheep from the goats, right. 

My husband had this talk today and well, there are consequences to sin. Seven generations. 

Look at the world today. Anything goes. The world is a playground for anything. It seeping into our churches and we are made to feel that holiness and purity is wrong. 

So, this last week, I thought. 

Is it that some are called and chosen and some are not. Is it that like pharaoh and Judas, some are chosen for the pit of fire, limestone. 

I mean, if anything and everything goes. 

Are we any different from the world.

This is the thing. 

As for me. 

No way. 

I walk a holy and pure life of the LORD. Purify even my every thoughts O LORD that it aligns to YOUR thoughts O LORD. Clean and pure. Separate me and set me apart for YOU O LORD JESUS. 

We all fall short so I’m going to have to let the LORD purify me more and more and more. 

More and more and more of JESUS JESUS JESUS.

No one can separate our LORD JESUS from me. For HE is deep deep deep withing the inner-most being which HE fashioned with HIS very own hand. 

Therefore, all I have to do is stand firm in the WORD and study HIS WORD diligently. Not turn to the left or the right but walk the narrow narrow gate. God’s ways are higher than our ways. So are HIS thoughts higher than our thoughts. JESUS is the only way home. 

🙂

Hey, you know what, it may not go for popular but who said it’s a popularity contest. 

I know this. 

I’m on the sheep side. 

LOL

I told my husband this. My conscience is clear and it makes for good night’s sleep, every single night of my life. Eight hours.

lift me higher and higher

lift me higher LORD
higher and higher and higher

Consecration.

Separation of persons, utensils, buildings, or places from everyday secular uses for exclusive dedication to holy or sacred use. In the Bible consecration was effected through an appropriate rite or vow. Hebrew expressions imply “separation” (Ex 13:2; Lv 8:10–12; Dt 15:19), “dedication” (Lv 21:12; Nm 6:9), or “ordination” (literally, “filling the hand,” Ex 28:41; 1 Kgs 13:33). NT references are fewer, but they frequently connote the idea of holiness (Jn 10:36; 1 Cor 7:14; 1 Tm 4:5).
In church usage, especially among hierarchical denominations, the term describes solemn rites that establish a bishop or other official in his office. It is also used to describe dedication of shrines, reliquaries, cathedrals, elements of the Mass, and lesser objects or buildings set aside for ecclesiastical functions.
Protestant teaching stresses the priesthood of every believer. Thus all Christians are “saints” (from the same root word as “consecration”), that is, devoted to God for life. In Roman Catholic doctrine the church consecrates (canonizes) great Christians as saints after they have died.
Consecration is significant in relation both to God and to the world. The apostle Paul spells out the term’s Godward meaning in Romans 12:1, 2. Its importance in relation to people and things is a basic theme of the apostle Peter’s first letter. In everyday life each Christian is meant to live out a “holy” and “royal” priesthood for God’s glory (1 Pt 2:9).
Christians consider the consecration of one’s own personality by the work of the Holy Spirit to be an important mark of spiritual maturity.

the imperfect me

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3257692/

we are not perfect, not one of us and some of us go overboard, I felt I was fat fat fat and stopped eating, it took a long long time to start eating again, like a normal person, saying someone is fat is not a nice thing to say, you never know where it could lead the person, I grew up in a Twiggy mentality, I was so thin, unbelievably thin, now I know why mostly when I do eat, I really do not feel hungry at all, it’s like it’s time to eat but I do not feel hungry, lol, a long time ago, forgotten about it really, the non perfect part of me, 😦  in Christ, you have to admit your weaknesses to overcome them, like a confession, JESUS just takes it all, you’d never know, truly, it’s mental,   😦  it was so bad both my husbands commented, you’re bone thin, you’re only bone, the thing is, you do not see yourself as bone thin, you still see yourself as fat, so, I don’t do diets as it’s my weakness and I don’t not eat, I still only eat once a day, you’d never know, this is my weakness, a place where I would never ever venture, not walk in that direction, a no no for me, a big one NO NO NO … with some, when you are brought into realization that it’s something you cannot control in your life, you don’t go there, for me, it’s starvation, it’s easy, no problem, so, I don’t go there, lost in the disease, the demons, darkness, my imperfect confession, we are called to make public confessions, not like when I was Catholic, in the box, it helps to know yourself, to know oneself one better,
