Repentance - God's WONDERFUL Provision



What a compassionate reminder, of the LOVE of Jesus, always willing to receive us when we have a humble, repentant heart.

One of my favorite Scriptures is found in Isaiah 57:15 that says:
For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: "I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.



It's the precious Blood of the Lamb of God that cleanses us from sin.
God told us in I John 1:9: If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Father, HELP US, not to be ashamed or reluctant in any way to come to YOU to make
things right in our lives. It cost YOU TOO MUCH for us not to come boldly to YOU. I want to be one of the ones that finds sanctuary in forgiveness, and peace in my life, in Jesus' Name.

Thank YOU, Lord, for bringing to us Rain.




We need rain. Father, I thank You for bringing not only the cloud cover to cool our land, but clouds that bring "showers of blessing." I speak to the wind to redirect clouds to us, clouds that are full of rain, without a storm, hail, damaging winds or tornados. We need slow soaking in rain, our ground is thirsty. We can water and irrigate, but, for some reason, the moisture never means as much to the land as when it comes from Your rain. You are our Great and Mighty God, and are mindful of what we need. So, clouds, come, in Jesus' Name.

A Powerful Confession/Prayer For Our Children



I came across this confession that was designed for children. Made a couple of changes, so I am not using it's origional title. Have passed it out to children and adults alike.... but especially since school is about ready to start, I thought it would be an encouraging thing for your children to have under their belt.

Is there anything more precious to us than our children?

God's Word that tells us that death and life are in the power of our tongue Proverbs 18:21
A wholesome tongue is a tree of life Proverbs 15:4,
Romans 4:17 tells us: "I have made you a father of many nations" in the presence of Him whom he believed--God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did
Job 22:28 says: You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.

Even God spoke things that were not as though they were, and they came into existance. We're made in His image, and I would hope that we would learn from His example. God HELP US to HELP our children.



A Confession of My Faith

I am a servant and child of the Most High God.
Jesus is my Savior and my Lord.
I am filled with His Holy Spirit.
I obey His written Word.
I hear every Word that He speaks to me,
And I obey quickly without arguing.
I live and walk by faith,
Not by what I see.
I walk in the power of my strong spirit.
I am full of wisdom and understanding.
I lay hands on the sick and they recover.
I win people to Jesus.
I do not lie - I am always quick to tell the truth.
I do not steal - I am a tither and a giver, not a taker.
My Father takes care of me,
I do not complain,
I work hard to help my family, I honor and obey my parents
And people in authority over me.
I walk in love - I do not gossip
I am not rude, and I am never mean.
I put others first, and I am not selfish
I treat other people with respect
I am always grateful for everything good in my life.
I am fiercely loyal.
I am full of courage and refuse fear of any kind.
I am merciful and kind
I am generous and fair-minded
I do not become offended, and I am quick to forgive.
I always do what is right and I do it right.
I do all things with excellence
I am diligent and I am not a quitter
I only allow my eyes and ears and mouth to let in good things
I keep my heart pure
I live my life in honor and humility
I allow nothing to come before God

Father, HELP US to see through our eye of faith. HELP US to decree Your Word, and to walk in a way that expresses Your character. In Jesus' Name.

Spiritual Awakening

This article is used by permission.by Pastor Alma Lampp

True Christianity is not religious. True Christianity is Life manifested in humanity. A miracle life born in the hearts of Believers. God’s mercy over His Creation opens the blinded eyes of the spirit of man to the God Revealing Discovery. The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead can quicken us and make us ALIVE.

The Word of God is a Miracle Book, a recipe for miracles to Believers, separating people from dead gods/idols to worship the Living God.

If miracles happen, people will come. Where God is not manifested, people go after other gods/idols to worship. It is in the nature of man to worship. In any place where a man's or woman’s prayers are heard and answered, God brings manifestation. People will flock in to get, hear and receive. More than to hear the philosophy, orthodox, statesman, the traditionalist, theologians, even hard core atheist’s, and the one that is only a “professor”, slip in to get a “Can it really work” view of God’s power.

Education, philosophical oratory, ecclesiastical indoctrination worship man - and will never move the hand of God. Only by His Word, His Way, and His Spirit can a true awakening of the Living God in this Earth be experienced. The heart hunger for miracles is deeply rooted in man. Humanity, the offspring in the image of God, every race, nationality, be they kings, paupers, bond, free, great, small, they all deep down hunger for the real Living God. Religion is a pagan, impersonal ritual of ceremonies (lifeless formality) and when the party’s over, only the ravaged, raped, molested souls put on their best make-believe personalities and walk like mannequins or zombies to the drum beat of a laughingstock of eternity.

Education of any kind will not take God’s place. God needed miracles due to the dullness of man‘s hearing. Jesus Christ in His true Church, Word Believers, is as much a Miracle Worker NOW as He ever was. There must be a return to “Christ Living In Us“, the hope of Glory, His power and personal presence. If we preach what Christ preached, believe as He believed His Father’s Word, obey as He obeyed, we will get the same results that Jesus got in His ministry. This is called Spiritual Awakening when we submit our thinking, actions, desires, and our lives to the Lord. The teaching & preaching of modern man’s twisted theology will not produce “thus saith the Lord.”

Answer for truth that sets us free, John 8:32 Only simple faith in God’s spoken, written Word can set us free to obtain eternal life and serve the Living God. Proverbs 4:22 His Word is life to all who find it and health to all their flesh.

I Believe All of God’s Word
God Bless You

The Mind Under The Blood

(For some reason, the new format of blogspot, I'm unable to make use of spaces between paragraphs....anyone know why?) Proverbs 16:11 - Commit your works to the LORD, And your thoughts will be established. Romans 12:2 - And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. The mind has been likened to the room of a house where visitors are entertained. All visitors to one's three-fold being come in through the mind. They first enter the mind, then drop down into the spirit and get root, then possess the whole man. Thoughts are bold and daring things, and strong and persistent. Like armed men they force themselves into the mind. They come enticingly. They come insinuatingly. They come threateningly. They come in a thousand ways. They come singly; they come in droves. Some wait at the door of the mind and push and crowd to get in while the room is full. They keep up a din and chatter and strain the nerves and chill the heart. Fear dashes into the mind and captures us and holds us fast. A thought knocked at the door of the mind. It is looked at a while, then possesses the whole being and and leads to sin and shame. Anxiety and nervousness appear and drive off the rest and keep the sleepless all night for nothing. Doubt, as full of death as hell itself, is let in and consulted with, and blows out every light and fills the room with darkness. Trouble, many-faced, many-handed, big and squatty, will fill the mind and stay all day, and return in the morning by the time you open your eyes. Cares, weighing a thousand pounds each, come to unload in the room. Old Self, under God's judgment, and refusing to die, wants to stay on hand all the time with a ready sword of protection and having pitying attendants on hand with fans and camphor bottles in case it is hit or wounded or knocked down. It wants the best chair in the mind and the most attention; notwithstanding, it is the most unwholesome visitor on hand. It has been deposed of God and is under His everlasting curse, and yet wants to lurk around all the time. And friends and foes and husbands and wives and children, and tommorrow, and houses and lands, and the work on hand of whatever nature, and what was and what is and what is to be, and this and that and the other, real and imaginary, and demon impressions and suggestions, and the thoughts of friends and foes toward you, coming to you in dreams and while awake as swift messengers---all these things in the different shapes and sizes and sounds will harass and possess and occupy and claim all the attention of the mind possible, if allowed. Thousands are in the grave and in institutions, and other thousands are in physical torments and sickness because of the mind thus occupied. And many honest souls are craving deliverance. How is it found? These visitors cannot be humanly driven off. They are too many and too strong and too smart for us. They have no shame nor feeling. Kick them out and they are right back. Throw them out and they get right up and come in again. Lock the door and they every one have a master key. But thank God there is a way of deliverance from these tormenting thoughts, spirits, things. And that way is through the precious BLOOD OF THE LAMB OF GOD, once slain.. When my eyes opened from sleep these thoughts of past, present and future trouble were on hand to torment me. They had made an early start. They would come trooping in. I was helpless. I knew not what to do with them. Then the Lord showed me that door in Egypt with the blood sprinkled over and around it (Exodus 12:21-24), into which no evil, tormenting spirit could come and that I was just simply to be willing to commit my mind unto Him in helplessness and then to claim and believe and see the Blood of Christ over and around it, just like that door, that room in Egypt. It was a new and blessed thought to me. I did so. They came again and I said, "the Blood is over the door. The world is dead to me and I am dead to the world. You cannot enter under the Blood.", They backed off. Again and again they would come, but I simply pointed to the Blood over the door; the mind. I thought on the Blood whenever they came; and soon their power was gone and they eased their visitations; my torments ceased; my mind had rest, as I committed all to God and thought on the Blood. The spotless Lamb of God has shed it's most precious blood for you, to cleanse from sin and sickness, but in mind from torments and distractions as well. "The Blood is your one safety,. Not a death-dealing troubling, tormenting, fearful visitor could enter the room that night in Egypt where the blood was on the door. And dear, tormented soul, a thousand-fold more real and powerful than the blood of that little lamb is the precious Blood of the Lamb of God. See by faith His Blood sprinkled over the mind, the door to your being, and when these things appear and knock for attention, throw up your hands, helpless soul, and point them to the Blood on the door. By faith put death between them and you. Consent to your death in that Blood and take your place definately and continually under its protection. Say to thoughts and all hindering visitors to the mind's distraction from God and peace, "I am dead to you and you are dead to me." Say it in faith; say it over and over; say it persistently, believe that the Blood is on the door of your mind and that it is protecting you as God said it would.

We Need God’s Divine Direction

We Need God’s Divine Direction
The nations, Governments, Humanity, Education, Families, Churches and Leaders

God has not made His Word too complicated that humanity cannot understand His instructions. If He says DO - we do. If He says DON’T DO - We know not to do it. II Corinthians 5:7 tells us that we walk by faith. Romans 1:17 says that the just shall LIVE by faith. Mark 11:22 says to have faith in God.

The word “faith” is God’s calling us to TAKE HOLD of all we can of Him. We are eternal beings and we must set our life in God by faith in His Word, for it is our life, and keeping power NOW and FOREVER, eternally.

Every day we are challenged either to turn to the flesh OR to take hold of God by faith. That requires us to seek God for our WAY, to gather manna daily for we encounter major World problems that no man can handle without God. Many have tried it, but the ending proves that without God’s direction and obeying it, people perish for a lack of knowledge. Destroyed for a lack of knowledge. Hosea 4:6

Psalm 139:24: Lead me in Your Way everlasting. Isaiah 30:21 : You hear His voice say: this is the way walk ye in it. Isaiah 45:13: God will direct ALL our ways. John 14:6: I am the Way, the Truth and Life. I Corinthians 10:13: In all things I make a Way for your escape from evil.

A BULLETIN TO THE WORLD to the gates of hell, to the tried People of God, the Church, to all who read:
Deuteronomy 8:3; Matthew 4:4: Man, humans, ALL People shall not live by bread alone, natural food alone, but every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God Almighty. A steady stream.

We are individual beings with individual souls, spirits and bodies. Get it all into God’s hands or Perish. Don’t be a fool.
Psalm 14:1 says that a fool said in his heart there is no God. Proverbs 10:21 tells us that a fool dies for lacking of wisdom. Game playing is coming to an end. The door of mercy and grace will close at the end of that time, that dispensation, then the Rapture will take the READY Church out. Matthew 25:10: Five wise virgins will taken and the five foolish virgins were not. II Chronicles l7:14: IF My People that are called by My Name, will humble themselves, PRAY and seek MY face and TURN from their wicked ways THEN I will hear from Heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.

PEOPLE, WE MUST GET SERIOUS WITH GOD! There is no way for “blessing” except from God. Outside of God is the curse. We must get the Blood of the Lamb (Jesus) over our homes, our substance our families, and nation or we perish. Revelation 12:11 We are made overcomers by the Blood of the Lamb (Jesus’ shed Blood on the cross of Calvary) and set free….Raised with Him in His resurrected Life, waiting for His Return.. Put away haughty, religious, stubborn foolishness. Get saved and STAY saved.

God will not be mocked. Believe in God’s Word and LIVE or doubt and do without. NOW is the day of Salvation. Either we are headed for Heaven or Hell. We all enter planet Earth by birth, we will all EXIT by death or the Rapture. Choose your destiny NOW. God’s Word is our SALVATION TICKET. A ticket that is free of cost.
