DEATH IS THE BEGINNING OF LIFE EVERLASTING!

Revelation 14:13,”And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which, die in the Lord for henceforth: Yea, from their labors; and their works do follow them.”

For he doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children  of men.” Lamentations 3:33.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that hear my word, and believe on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” John 5:24.

In response to one of my readers who recently lost a loved one, and all those who may have struggled with this issue. I can’t tell you how to control grief, what I can say is found in the Bible; where the answer, to all things, can be found. Therefore, if you believe the words therein, you can gain relief.
I can’t think of anything more grievous in this world then Death.

Jeremiah 10:19 tells us; “Woe is me for my hurt! My wound is grievous: but I said, Truly this is a grief, and I must bear it.

“And whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Believest thou this.” John 11:26.

We are confident, I say, and willing to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.”
2nd Corinthians 5:8.

These verses are another reason to belong to a Bible Believing, Bible Teaching Church, to help us understand death and grieving.There is so much more.

Verses such as Psalms 68:20;”He that is our God is the God of salvation and unto God the Lord belong the issues from death.

Psalms 18:6;”In my distress, I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.”

You must get right with God your Comforter, and Pray.
Hear the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer that goes not out of feigned lips.” Psalms 17:1.

Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust. Cry when they are born and rejoice when they are gone. Remember those special times between the dashes, the date of birth and the date of death, find relief in the good things, to have known them, and them, God.

Death is the beginning of everlasting life.

That statement is the beginning of peace and an understanding of;

For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord’s.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, “HIS WILL BE DONE!”

PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH!

I have a tendency to get on my own nerves when God is not involved in my thinking process, we need Christ, for us to get and keep it right. Knowing this, we should Practice What We Preach.

I believe I am where I am supposed to be, and my task is to deliver messages for the benefit of all, while realizing I am in need of help myself. The Devil doesn’t care to give us Spiritual information; this is why we should always be in a position to hear the Words of Christ. With that being said, we are often encouraged to attend a “ Bible Believing, Bible Teaching Church.”

The flesh, so easily forgets to practice what it has learned, and I am sure you have heard that old saying; “In one ear, and right out the other.”  1st Corinthians 9:16 tells us;

For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel

I am not taking any chances, I know what woe is unto me mean. So that is a part of why we need Teachers and Churches, and they are in place for us to get a better understanding of God’s Will for us to have a better life through Jesus Christ.  We need to understand; 

The wages of sin are death.   Romans 6:23.

When we learn how to excess our Blessings, and understand the chores set before us, instead of feeling chastised, or confused about what we should or should not do. Let the judge’s judge, while we learn how to use the Love of God in our everyday lives.

To know that the problems of the world will not terrorize those who believe.  Preachers are  in place to instruct us on how and what the Bible really mean. For instance, how to receive the Holy Spirit;

So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.   Romans 10:17.

To help us get to this point, we must receive the word, or go back to the words of Christ, when in need of a refresher course, whatever state you may be in, stay around like minds by joining a “Bible Believing, Bible Teaching Church,”  with a Pastor that teaches and explain the Words of Christ.

Always Practice What You Have Learned, while “Practicing What You Preach.”

LET THE CHURCH SAY, AMEN!

I WANNA GROW OLD!

I was told that you are “as old as your thoughts, and as young as your despair.”                                            

I want to live long enough to get old and at some point to have been useful.

PSALMS 116: 26 says; “Precious in the Sight of the Lord is the Death of His Saints.”   I am not the one trying to give the Lord grief. It’s simply this, I don’t want to be remembered as an old fool. I want to be remembered as a woman of character.

There was a time that if someone asked me what my plans were for old age, (since retirement was out of the question) I might have said, “I guess I will just die.” And yes I actually said this to my Godmother and she had a fit! She had me go to the Concordance and look up every word if I had to, and come back with the correct answer. After the third try to long distance Bible classes from my 91-year-old T.T,’  I found John 11:26;

“Jesus said,”AND WHOSOEVER LIVE AND BELIEVE IN ME SHALL NEVER DIE. BELIEVE THOU THIS’?

So I am going to do the best I can for as long as I can. I am going to praise God for allowing me to get up in years. And I mean in more ways than one. I am going to remember the things I use to do and strive to do the things I can do better. When someone calls me old, I am going to pray that they get there too. Did I mention, the only way to get old is to live?

Finally, I will pray not to become a Vindictive, Mad at the World old woman.
