Christian radio tycoon ( see www.wecanknow.com ) predicts that the Rapture will happen on May 21 –and the world will end Oct 21– and surprising numbers believe him. Very disturbing news for those who are anxious to watch Oprah Winfrey’s final episode airing May 25. And i still have a car payment May 5??
I know i say these things with a hint of skepticism.. I truly believe in the Rapture of the believers. I long for that event as do multitudes of followers of Christ. What do we not get about “no man knows the day or hour…..?”
One of my favorite scriptures is from Lamentations 3. It starts out saying.. “Because of the Lord’s great love.. we are not consumed..” And while that is true- — our God is a consuming fire, it sounds so harsh…. so Old Testament. Another meaning for that word consumed is (depleted). You might like reading it this way. “Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not depleted..” This world certainly depletes us. The aging process wears us away. Pressures of life, finances, relationships… all have a way of reducing our strength, vitality and joy. Ahh.. but we are not consumed by these…”His mercies never fail.. they are new every morning!” Count on that. Lovingly remind God of his promises and what he reveals about himself in his word.
Working with Josh Hatcher today on the website. The guy is incredible!
I’m not sure if everyday we recognize God speaking to us…. but each day he sovereignly directs, orchestrates our lives, demonstrates his love for us. “He gets sweeter and sweeter as the days go by… oh what a love between the Lord and i…… I keep fallin in love with Him, over and over” – remember that song?
There .. were trials.. Lord your Word talks about seeing your goodness ‘in the land of the living’ I am now in such a season of ‘goodness’ Be hopeful if you are now in a dark time. The Lord is fully able to fill you with joy again!!
How many steps did Peter take before he started to sink? We sometimes act like he doubted and sank immediately.. What if it was 20 or 50 steps? What must that have felt like.. We would remember it for life. Call us out Lord!
Still dreaming about walking on water with Jesus? Did Jesus carry Peter back to the boat… or did they walk side by side with Peter grinning like a mule chewing thistles?
“In the morning O Lord, you hear my voice. In the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in… EXPECTATION.” Ps 5:3 Our DAD can do it!!
The Lord takes delight in his people.. he crowns the humble with salvation. Do we consider our salvation as a crown from Him?
Another scripture says that “A noble wife is her husbands’ crown.” We are called to be the bride of Christ. Could it be that we are his crown?
Have you checked pretty much every ‘home’ page or status lately except the one that gives you life and peace? It truly is in Him that we live and move and have our being…… whether we are believers or not. You have a friend request… Please confirm.. —– Jesus
