  1. Psalm 89:15 "Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance." Ultimately there is no greater joyful sound from the lips of man or any heavenly creature then to hear (John 3:14-17) "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." What hope, what life, what joy these words do give and should give to all of man kind. To know that we are not condemned to an eternal hell of “fire and brimstone” (Rev. 14:10) with unbelievers “Where the worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” Mk. (9:44), and the “smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever.” (Rev 14:11). We with all of man kind have been provided a way to escape this condemnation. We know that when we leave this life whether it be by the way of the grave or at the coming of the Lord we will enter a realm where "God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away" (Rev. 21:4) There for we know we can comfort ourselves and others, not to sorrow for the loved ones who have gone on to be with the Lord, (I Thess. 4-13-18). (Romans 8:1-2) says “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” We are free from the law of sin and death and the pain that comes with it. But we are not to use this freedom to do our own thing “For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.” (Gal. 5:13). As we read (Romans 8:1) let us not part way read the verse “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus” and stop short of full meaning. But let us read the rest of it, that tells us what it really means to be in Christ Jesus. For being in Christ Jesus means to walk and obey the Spirit of "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." (Galatians 5:22-23). As we walk, being free from all condemnation, then we will hear the precious words of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, "Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord." (Mt. 25:23).
  2. That's good to be practical like Mark said on not getting light headed at work because of fasting. I try to fast once a week on Sunday my day off. I do not always do it, but have been able to keep a Sunday fast pretty consistent. I work 6 days a week and my job too, is physical and not real wise to fast during working days. I did have a weeks vacation coming to me, and and went on a 7 day fast in mid March. I did receive a refreshing and break through because of it. My commitment to fast is based on Jesus telling the disciples that this type of demon goes out by prayer and fasting. I just want to make sure I have taken the necessary preparations in dealing with anything the devil brings my way. I do not want to hear this could not come out because of not fasting. Do not have complete revelation of exactly what fasting does and I am learning always about its significant. So I just do it by faith knowing the bible tells us to. Lot of people find comfort in food and the affairs of life. So when a person puts food aside and the affairs of life and seeks comfort only in God and His Spirit and Word. Then it disciplines and trains the soul to constantly find comfort in doing God's will even when you are eating and engaged in the affairs of this life.
  3. Psalm 89:15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance. To know the joyful sound that comes from heaven is so important for us as Christians to know and share with the world. There are so many sounds out there from secular media and some Christian media that are doom and gloom. I say this not just because they speak of tragedy and death but offer no hope. Even Jesus talked of wars, famine, earth quakes, and great persecution as recorded in Mt. 24, Mk. 13, and Lk. 21. But with all this talk of destruction it was laced with a bright sun shine of hope. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. Luke 21:18. We as believers and not doubters are to walk with are head high and shoulders back and know that we are warriors and champions for God Almighty who sets on the throne. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:38. I just seen a list of newspaper clippings the Lord gave to a proven prophet of God, see list below. Again these are on the negative side. Yet why does God show us up coming tragedies and disasters? Not to discourage us and make us fear, but to prepare our hearts for what we must over come. Yes none of these things shall separate us from the love of God but we are more then conquerors. We can and must walk in Psalm 91 as a testimony to our loved ones and the world. Remember Jesus did say this gospel would be preached to all nations in the last day. As we commit ourselves to God daily, we will rise up and be a true witness and walk in the glory of God. In Gods glory is resurrection power, remember the story of Lazarus in Jn. 11. In these last days God will have those that not only do the works of Jesus but great works John 14:10-14. They will be joined hand in hand with Jesus and cast out devils, speak with new tongues lay hands on the sick and see them recover. We will fulfill Mk. 16:20 preaching the good news (not bad news) because we have an intimate, loving and yes fearful relationship with our creator. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following.

  4. John 12:42Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue: 43For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
  5. When I was working construction in NY they have these big racks with maybe 50 up to 100 magazines on them. I noticed that 75% plus of them in some way or another were exploiting the sexuality of women. It did not matter what type of product they were marketing. Even in the roofing profession they use women in skimpily dressed clothing to market the product. Now when I am in the stores going through check out lines I make every effort not to look at the magazines. What good is it.
  6. You are very right on both points Cholette. Some times people continue in a relationship because they feel sorry for the other person. This is no time to dance around a situation (potential marriage) that can damage and destroy your walk with the Lord. It is not about the person but the words and actions that are coming out of Him. God will richly bless you for make a decision that is based on your continual intimate fellowship with Him (God). Hebrews 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. Revelation 2:6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate. Revelation 2:15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate. Psalm 30:5 ... in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
  7. I just posted this on another thread on this forum, and know you last post was about 6 months ago. But if you are still waiting maybe this can be a word of encouragement. I have temporarily relocated for two reasons. The second one is for work and the first one is to attend a church in the area. When I received the call to go to work in this area I had no idea that the church was less then 20 minutes from our office. This church and leader are known world wide for its ministry and in particular for the prophetic . We just had a service, last night where one of the staff members kept seeing 22 while he was in Europe and Canada. Make a long story short he was lead to Isaiah 22:22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open. Stating that we are entering into a season of Open Doors for God to do his plan. I would say with its world wide influence this could be a word for you, to encourage you to expect great and Mighty things from Our God. Again just some thoughts I had.
  8. How would I tell someone I love their posts where it shows up on their count of love your posts.
