Answered Prayer

Snow fills the valleys. Trees are laden with the white fluffiness of their intruders. Branches sag under the weight. A Cardinal, dressed in his bright red suit, sits on a snow-covered branch and chirps out his song for all to hear.

Nearby, a rabbit sticks his small black nose out from under a snow laden bush and peers out. Seeing nothing of danger he cautiously steps out onto the snow and hops a few feet, then stops. Leaving small prints in the white covering he ventures a little farther.

In the distance, A Man walks briskly while having to maneuver the large snow shoes his feet are anchored to. His heavy coat is buttoned tightly and His fur hat has sprinkles of snow embedded in the fur. His beard is dusted with white flakes.

What the rabbit doesn’t see is several yards behind the bush he was hiding in is a woman lying in the cold snow. She has been walking to get help when her car broke down  a mile back on the snow-covered road.

Her last words, before collapsing into darkness, “Jesus, help me.”

The Man kneels down beside her.

She’s unaware.

He places His hand over her heart.

It isn’t beating.

He looks heavenward and says a few words in Hebrew. The thump, thump, thump within her chest suddenly rings loud and clear.

When she opens her eyes, she finds herself safely within her car. The motor is running and heat has filled the car. Through the radio speakers the soft words, “Love lifted me, Love lifted me” are being sung.

She blinks several times, looks around, and wonders if she has had  a miraculous encounter with the King of kings and Lord of lords.

(Sue’s version) Psalm 17:6, 102:17

The Unexpected Guest

Two children lie flat on their backs in the back yard of their home on the lush green grass. The sky is a beautiful blue with a few puffy clouds lingering about just to entice the children to try to guess what they look like.

Mom has given each a small sack with peanuts so they’ll have a snack while guessing what each cloud looks like. She watches out the kitchen window and chuckles when Timmy yells, “I see a rabbit!”

Sissy looks intently at the cloud her brother is pointing to and excitedly yells, “I see it, too.”

Mom turns from the window with a smile and a chuckle and thinks, “I wish you were here, Honey, to see this.” Her husband had gone to be with the Lord a few months before. Tears fill her eyes thinking of him.

The doorbell rings. Mom quickly dries her hands and places the dish towel on the counter, and goes to the door. A Man stands on the front porch. She’s never met this man before and cautiously asks, “Can I help you?”

“I am the I Am and I’m here to tell you that your husband, James, is so very happy.”

“What? Who did you say you are?” Mom demands as anger flares up at the thought that this is some sort of sick joke.

“I am the I Am. May I come in?”

Unexpected peace suddenly flows through her and she opens the screen door and steps back to allow the Man entry. She offers him a seat and some ice tea but He declines the tea and takes a seat in the chair across from the couch.

They chat for a little while and He tells her that her worries are taken care of. She need not worry that she’ll lose her home or the children will not have enough to eat or the bills won’t be paid.

By the end of the conversation Mom has tears streaming down her cheeks and can’t seem to thank the Man enough.

“May I hug you?” she asks as they stand near the door when He’s ready to leave.

“Of course,” The Man replies and as she hugs Him tight, He whispers in her ear. “I will take care you. I love you very much.”

Then He leaves.

Thursday’s Pen Tip – Bearing Fruit

“Those who love the Lord Jesus Christ, King of kings and Lord of lords shall prosper.

Prosper in faith, growing in He who loves you, getting to know Him for what He is and who He is.

Bearing fruit is only possible when the Almighty is the foundation, the root of who you are and allowed to work through you and within you.

To walk in His light is but to ask. For to ask is to receive, proving you are asking for His will.

Walk in His love, seek Him in all that you do. Be faithful to His word and rejoice in His love.

“He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever He does prospers.” Psalm 1:3

Angel? Not Me!

I posted this a few years back and now it has come up again – hence time to set the record straight, again. ~~~~~~~~~~

ISN’T SHE BEAUTIFUL?    images[4] (3)

Unlike the Cherubim that have four faces, four wings, feet like a calf’s foot, and sparkle like burnished brass, (Ez.1:5-7) she resembles a beautiful woman. She doesn’t look like the Seraphim with six wings, either. (Is.6:2-3)

I have told the truth but yet I have been chastised and condemned. I’ve been told I’m a “lousy Christian,” “you don’t represent true Christians,” and a “flat-out liar,” because I wrote that we as humans do not become angels when we leave this earth. I was shocked! It still amazes me that so many Christians are ignorant as to this truth. Not just Christians, either. Many believe the lies Satan has put out there.

imagesCA5R2VU6

“THE ANGEL OF THE LORD ENCAMPS ALL AROUND THOSE THAT FEAR HIM, AND DELIVERS THEM.” Ps.34:7

“Those that fear Him.” Every Christian has an angel assigned to him or her and we like to think it’s a beautiful angel with flowing silky hair, satin wings, etc. And it’s wonderful to imagine our loved one that has died is now suddenly a beautiful angel.

But is it true? NO! (Don’t scream at me yet.)

images[5]         images[6]

Angels were created by God, for God, and to be His messengers and serve Him. “… for He commanded, and they were created. Ps.148.5

They are not to be worshiped. Only God through His Son, Jesus Christ, is to be the focus of our worship. (Rev.22:8-9)

imagesCAK3A3FT This little ceramic angel has been created by some talented person. It’s purpose is determined by its creator. That is the same as with God.

He is the Almighty Creator of all things and He had a purpose for creating angels. He made them not only as His messenger but holy, (Mk. 8:38) and they never die like we do. He created humans also with the same purpose. He wants us to be holy and to be His messenger of the gospel throughout the world. We have the choice to be holy or not to be; to believe in Him, through His Son Jesus Christ, or not to believe. Many state they believe in God, well so does Satan! God had a purpose for creating His angels and for creating every human being; to serve and glorify Him!

As Christians we do not die, we just leave our earthly body behind. “nor can they die anymore, for they are equal to the angels and are sons of God being sons of the resurrection.”  Lk. 20:36 (emphasis mine) DID YOU CATCH THAT? EQUAL TO THE ANGELS, NOT TRANSFORMED INTO ANGELS BUT EQUAL TO.

So why do we not suddenly turn into angels when we leave this earthly body?  “…we shall be like Him.” 1Jn.3:2

“For our citizenship is in heaven…the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body…” Phil. 3:20-21 (emphasis mine)

Jesus is not an angel!!!!

Once we enter heaven we will judge the angels. “Do you not know that we shall judge angels?…” 1Cor. 6:3 If we become an angel when we die then we would not be above the angels. Right now we are below the angels, they watch over us.

There are many scriptures that speak about angels but there are none that say we humans become, are transformed, into an angel when we die. We live on, in heaven or in hell. If we are in heaven we are living in and with a love greater than anything we have ever known or can even imagine. There are no more tears, no more suffering, illness, hurt, or pain. We have been released by the grace of Almighty God.  We do not sprout wings nor buzz back to earth to protect those who are left behind. That is what the angels do. We bask in His presence.  If one is not a believer, well I’ve already shown part of that life in my post, “Been there-not going back!”

There is only one way to be guaranteed a seat near God’s Throne, ask Jesus into our heart. “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:5

“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, ‘If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”‘ John 8:31-32

Thursday’s Pen Tip # 15

“He who is on high has given His Son for the forgiveness of you! How can others who receive such a wonderful and blessed gift ignore that precious gift and withhold it from others?

Your eternal salvation does not rest on you forgiving others, but by faith in the Almighty Son of God, to forgive as you have been forgiven is walking in the ways of the Lord.

Do not cheat yourself withholding love. For it is His love for you that has set you free from condemnation, unforgiveness and be blessed by He who loves you.

Walk in His peace, with His joy filling your heart. Be as He who loves you would have you be.”

Only Repentance Can Stop You From the Eternal Fires of Hell

“Go in faith My people of the cross. Your words shall bring forth persecution yet many shall hear and rejoice.

The tides are swelling. The land is ripe with dissension and prejudice. Let your words be your sword for it is through My word that shall stop the battle.

Put on the full armor given to you and stand firm for the enemy is on his way. He shall attack when least expected. He shall entice, cajole, ridicule. Be aware that his army stands ready for his command.

Your armies, tanks, and commanders are lost in the war of sin. Only repentance can stop you from the eternal fires of hell. Reach out in faith and hold back your foes. Cling to the word of the Lord.

Time is near when all shall bow and heavens gates shall swing wide. Follow the path that I have laid out, for each of you have a destiny to fulfill.

My word stands, My truth prevails for all shall see the winds blow across the nations carrying with it the wrath for all who rebuke My word.

Take heed O’ leaders for your downfall is near. You cajole My truth and act so wise. Yet your foolishness shall bring you embarrassment and cheeks as red as a new bride.

Fall on your face and seek Mine for you shall be as a serpent if you reject My truth. Lead not My people to war for you shall lose. My people shall rejoice as the blood flows from your fallen soldiers.

You resist and I shall bring you down O’ nations of decadence. You shall fall as a tree in a storm, as tidal waves that hit the shores leaving nothing behind but destruction. O’ leaders across the land, your folly shall end in your demise taking the innocent along your muddy paths.

Walk tall My children for your Savior shall sweep you out of harms way. Your final destiny shall bring no pain. My gates are open, My arms yearn for all to embrace My love. Few shall see the heavens rewards for the path to hell is wide.

Rejoice O’ loved ones for I await. Your songs of praise lift My heart, My eyes shed tears of overflowing love. Reach out to those in pain for their hearts are empty from the world’s abuse. Words of hate flow like rivers down a hill spreading its vile disease of bitterness along the banks of everlasting cruelty.

Reach out O’ loved ones and catch the falling people who lose their grip and fall from grace. Kiss their heart with your kindness and love for their heart needs the passion of loving caresses. My comfort shall fill them as a jar being filled with honey. My love is everlasting.

Bring them to Me and all shall see how love can fill the largest of empties. This earthly time is short but eternity waits. My mercy is new each day, so many may face the trials of time. Time everlasting needs no mercy for you shall be joining the Father at His throne. Rejoice.”

By the Holy Spirit – 2-15-07
