The Pomegranate Blessing

In His Hands
.
There is a song that I learnt at Sunday School and I was reminded about it recently, I have shared it with many Children over the years, in my R.E Classes, Sunday Schools and Funday School, it’s called…  ” He’s got the whole wide world in His hands ” I’m sure many of you know it and it is very True but it does not include the evil that happens in the world and the pain and hardship we suffer, all good things come from God because He is Love and Love is Pure, it does not rejoice in evil and it never chooses to do evil, agree with it or willingly allow it but will tolerate evil to bring good from it but does not do evil to bring good out of it … a big difference . 
.
What some may think is evil may be God’s Love, Compassion and Mercy reaching out in deliverance,  such as the World wide flood in Noah’s time and Pagans being put to death, as we read about in the Old Testament, this is so they would not cause more suffering. 
 .
1Corinthians 13:4  Love suffereth  long, and is kind; Love envieth not; Love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;  Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;   Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the Truth;  Love never fails.
 .
I would like to share with you something wonderful that I became aware of in the last few days, those who have been following our Blog would know this is not unusual with me….I believe without doubt our God is a God of the impossible and all His ways are Loving and Just, He has not changed, He has always been this way.
 .
The Blessing of the Pomegranates started with a message I shared on our new Christmas Blog, about the  Christmas Symbols much the same as I did on Freedomborn last year, it’s now called ” Share with God’s Children”  ( link below ) a lot of its symbols were in an e-mail I received a few years ago, some more were added last year and the same this year and of course God’s Children are all ages.
 .
 .
Popegranate and Juice
I had often seen Pomegranates in Christmas decorations but did not give them much thought until after I added the Pine cones to my message which Lady Dei had asked me about, after finding Pomegranates Christian symbolism on the Internet , which blessed me very much, I added them in too. 
 .
For the next few days I could not stop thinking about Pomegranates, this often means that God is talking to me when something good continues to be my focus, so when I saw an Organic bottle of Pomegranate juice in Coles, I felt He wanted me to drink it but I did not realize the Blessing this would bring. 
 .
I have had for many years a very bad skin reaction to the Toxins in my Body, these are caused by my health problems and some Medication that is needed for pain relief, so I have to take Antibiotics regularly especially if it is hot as my skin  blisters on parts of my Body and it is very painful and uncomfortable, I had been praying about this. 
 .
After buying the  Pomegranate juice I read up about their health benefits on the Internet ( link below) and was surprised to find that they also help Arthritis, I was so excited believing this was why God had encouraged me to drink their juice and I continued giving heartfelt thanks to Him and shared about them with my friends. 
 .
 .
Then amazingly even though I was not able to get my Antibiotics because of a mistake with the Scripts,  I started to notice my skin condition was clearing up even though it was extremely hot, Wow I could not believe it  and you can be sure I have not stopped thanking God and have also shared about them even more. 
 .
My Doctor also affirmed  that they would indeed help counteract the Toxins in my Body, why she had not told me this before was perhaps because she feels Medicine does the same, which may explain why she still gave me another Script for the Antibiotics, just in case, anyway I almost danced out of her office, God is so very, very, good.
 .
Some of you know that I have been Miraculously healed more than once in the past, all documented but unexplained. I was asked recently by a dear friend  why doesn’t God just heal all that I have wrong with me, I later asked Him why, His reply became a reality in my heart over the next few days…
 .
God often heals us Miraculously when there is no other way, He knows what we can endure and He strengthens us so we endure and intervenes when we can’t but ageing and death is a part of life and sin can block His healing too,  but He is merciful and knows those who will seek Him.  He also gives us His abundant gifts in Creation to help us, the same as He provided for Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden  and when we  seek Him, after asking Him with a Trusting believing heart, we are even more blessed and yes many can testify of His Miraculous Loving intervention in their lives, when all else had failed.
 .
Pomegranates are indeed a wonderful blessing from God, so is Medicine if not abused and other natural gifts that He has given us, when all used in balance, His balance but He also tells us as we can see below a very important Truth which we all do well to remember…
 .
I Timothy 4 ( 1-5 ) Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;   Forbidding to Marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the Truth.  For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:   For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. 
 .
May we all continue to experience Gods abundant blessings in our Lives and give thanks to Him wholeheartedly.
 .
Christian Love from  both of us – Anne

P.S Does anyone feel like a nice big Pomegranate…
Popegranate whole
Wow God is so very, very Awesome, so Good, Praise Him from who all Blessings Flow.

    Hi Anne, thank you for leaving me the link to this post. I love Pomegranates. As a child I used to love to eat them but as an adult I guess I quit eating them because of the trouble they are to eat. Tomorrow I am going to go to the grocery store and buy some pomegranates. Also just wanted to let you know that the links you left were working. I just have links blocked on my blog until I see who posts them and what they are. You are safe and your links are safe there is just no way to filter them without blocking them all until I moderate. I had to do this because I have a huge amount of spam links left on my blog daily. Also I left you a comment on my blog but not sure if you saw it, the post is not distorted at all, it looks great to me. Maybe it is just distorted on your end? Holding the ctrl button down while hitting the minus or plus button will make the fonts bigger or smaller, you maybe already know that but if not its worth a try. Thanks again for sharing this post with me. .

    • Thanks T for explaining it has helped and also about the Links, I won’t worry when it happens again on your Blog, can you please delete those comments for me but these still do not explain about the other problems or crashed Computers I have had and still have.

      Anyway let’s move on, I’m pleased you were blessed by the Blessing of Pomegranates they may make a big difference for you, or God will provide what is needed, He knows how much we can endure, it’s not His will we suffer.

      Ron just arrived so I need to go but will keep in touch.

      Hi Island Traveler, so good to see you, loved New York, thanks for taking us there, I’m looking forward to the next Trip …are we there yet? 🙂

      I don’t think the Brand of Pomegranate juice matters as long as it’s pure and not watered down or has heaps of additives, we also need to have it in balance like all things, except of course murder etc we can’t do that even in balanced amounts. 🙄

    • Freedomborn says:

      Hi Marsha , good news with your health and it’s also wonderful that you not only asked for God’s wisdom but believed you received it, so many just keep asking instead of giving thanks and He tells us (see below ) that it is very important to ask, we were not born with His wisdom so we all need it and in Christ Jesus, He teaches us all things including what is good for us, like He did you and me and many others.

      James 15: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

      Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

    I pretty much go by the facts that the Bible gives us the 6 months difference in ages of John the Baptist, and Jesus, and that Zacharias, ( John’s Father ) was a priest serving in the Jerusalem temple during the course of Abijah…which the Bible says he went to make his rounds so to speak, and that takes place traditionally in June…He then returned home, and John was conceived …9 months later would be March…if we add 6 months to that…Jesus was likely born between late September, and early October…Not to mention the Shepherds and Sheep were in the fields…not likely in dead winter, as well, as Joseph and Mary traveled to Rome to register the census…another thing that never took place in the winter months…
    Anyway, I have to head out to work…God Bless
    I would love to see the scriptures you arrive at your belief of the time of birth of our Lord and Savior sometime…
    God Bless

      I really appreciate Paul and respect you for wanting to reason together and resolve this very important Truth, as does Robin and Nancy and to do so without disension and this is what God tells us to do too, we are not to argue or even to agree to disagree both only cause division, instead we are to come to Him and seek His Truth in the Scriptures with the Spirits leading and this is what we all need too do for Unity, sadly so much disunity has resulted because Christians have trusted in their own understanding or others, especially those in Cults who have been deceived because they listened to their leaders instead of seeking Jesus our only Teacher, who through The empowering of The Holy Spirit teaches us all things and even shows us man’s error.

      To explain fully about Jesus’ Birth so you will have no doubts Paul, would take a lot of wordage, too much for here, so I will put together a Post for you and for the others who have doubts. Ron’s not here at the moment as I explained before but I will send it to him to check first, he mostly does my proff reading when he can, as well as suporting and protecting me on the Blog but he has very little time to do what is needed to keep our Blog going so it’s up to me but he hopes to do some more commenting and to write more of his own messages for Ron’s corner when things settle down for him, perhaps next month.

      We would appreciate your patience, I have also lost my Computer glasses and I’m finding that my eyes are very sore, I’m still looking for them but I may need to order new ones… now who said life was not meant to be easy … well they were wrong, it was meant to be but man screwed up and now as Jesus tells us, we will have trouble in this life and much worse at times then sore eyes.

      Take care Paul and as I said before we respect you and are pleased your Blogging again and even if we do not always agree, your still our dear Brother in the Lord, we are His Family.

    What a wonderful blessing, the Pomegranate God led you to…Hallelujah..and,
    ~Happy New Year~ I have a sister who suffers from debilitating arthritis, as you do, and I will have to let her know to try the pomegranate juice.

    I was reading comments from your other blogger friends, and I am so happy to see that we don’t have to totally agree on every point, or, doctrine to be fellow members of the Body of Christ…as long as we do agree that He is the reason for “Every” season.

    I think December 25th is a wonderful time of the year to put forth more effort in loving others, and celebrating the “Birth” of our savior, ( The Greatest Gift of all Times ), even if I, like Nancy, find Bible evidence pointing to a different time of year concerning His actual day of birth.

    The main thing is …we are more alike than we are different, those of us who love the Lord Jesus…and though there is a time and place for peaceful, logic, and reasonable debate.. thank God, there is a time of year that we can all sing praises to the the heavens collectively, in one accord, thanking God for sending His Son…
    Great to read your encouraging words again…
    Bless You Both…

      Hi Paul, thank you for visiting and sharing your thoughts, I appreciate very much that you do so with honesty instead of saying what you know I will fully agree with but as you implied we do need to Love everyone regardless of what they believe meaning all those who call themselves Christians and also those who don’t but we never have to agree with the wrong they do or the error they believe in, God tells us to rebuke and correct them but always with Love and because of Love and with the confirmation of His written Truth in the Scriptures.

      God is a God of unity not division and yes there is only one Truth, His and on this we are to agree and have the same focus, meaning to be of one mind, in other words what you watch on T. V and that you do so is your choice but you will live with the results good and bad, if it is rubbish as they say rubbish in and rubbish out. I do appreciate Paul the way you put your messages together, with a lot of thought and preparation which is evident and at times I have been very blessed by what you have shared from your Housetop, meaning Computer.

      Philippians 2:2- 4 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

      I’m sure you will agree Paul that The Holy Spirit does not say one thing to one person and something different to another when they contradict but He may teach you something that you can share with me and vice versa but it will always be confirmed in the Scriptures and you can be assured that Jesus being born on the 25th of December and that it is confirmed in them but because of misleading teaching this has been dismissed without real evidence. We hope to be able to share from Scripture in both clear and accurate detail the events that confirm this to be God’s Truth. I’m still putting it all together and God has shown me even more evidence in the last couple of weeks that I will share soon too.

      I believe God will always confirm His Truth for us if we ask Him with a willing heart to receive and not doubt that He will or has… as an example when we ask for His wisdom if we don’t believe we have received it in Christ Jesus through the empowering of The Holy Spirit and instead keep asking for it and seeking it in other ways, then why bother asking in the first place, the same as all His gifts.

      How do we know we are not in error, we can be assured by the Scriptures but if we haven’t asked for God’s wisdom then it’s Truth will just be foolishness to us ( see below ) and we will remain in darkness.

      1 Corinthians 2:9-16 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that Love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with Spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are Spiritually discerned. But he that is Spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the Mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? but we have the Mind of Christ.

      Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops (KJV)

      Happy New Year also Marie and very True dear Sister, God does indeed speak to us in many ways and He has no favorites, He Loves us all greatly but some bring Him delight, some cause Him sorrow. I know in my life I have done both, but my Love and thankfulness is so great for Him now that I don’t want to hurt Him any more in any way and so as I’m being perfected in Love, I ask for His help so I don’t.

      Jesus is my closest Friend, my Brother and my Spiritual Husband, I want to do good to Him all the days of my Life, now that it has really begun. I’m no longer an Adult acting like a child, I’m a Child being an Adult.

    I read with great interest your Christmas blessings and now this… Anne, I am taking the time to let you know that I deeply appreciate your artistic ability and expertise in finding the additions (that sparkle, etc)… you are truly a gifted person and I wanted to acknowledge it…. I am not too sure about the 25th/Dec. date but I am also not disputive about it… I just know that the date is not mentioned in the Bible nor the way we should celebrate it, like it does with his death; Communion… often pondered why but haven’t come up with the answer… I just so dislike the santa claus celebrations and the commercialism that goes one.. to me, it must be so offensive to our precious Saviour… however, this is not the reason I am sending you a note… I haven’t been in communicaton and ask your forgiveness… again, know that I deeply honor and love your artistic and writing abilities… YOU GO GIRL!!! you are doing GREAT!and I know that our Heavenly Father is deeply pleased with you… what a treasure you are to the Body… I hope others also take the time to honor you in this way….. just know I’m sending you a big hug and a HAPPY NEW YEAR greeting… thank for all you do for the Body… in His service, Nancy Naomi

      Hi Nancy, so very good to hear from you again, your encouragement is always very uplifting, I was wondering if you still make the Butterflies, they are so beautiful, the same as your ones are because they come from your kindness. God touched my heart with a few real ones recently and reminded me He was always close, I thought of you at the time, as you can see in The Butterfly Dance which was a few Posts ago, just like your Butterflies, they were all about Love.

      God showed me the Truth that Jesus’ Birthday was on the 25th of December over 2 years ago, of course the Scriptures don’t say the 25th, they never give exact dates in numbers just events in History that confirm the time they happened and they also show the events which confirm Jesus’ Birthday as the 25th of December.

      As I was putting together all the information to Post, God showed me some new Truths about Christmas but with unexpected friends visiting from Sydney and preparations for Christmas and my Birthday, I did not have a chance to put it in order so it does not confuse or has too much wordage, people seem to like instant these days, a bit like their coffee, myself I like a long slow brew, it brings out the flavour Hmmmm of course instant can be good sometimes too.

      As for the Commercialism of Christmas, I agree very much but even Santa can be seen with a different heart focus if we don’t accept the secular input, take some time to read some of the Christmas symbols on my Christmas Blog, they may surprise you, the link is on this Post.

      Thank you again dear Nancy, you have been a blessing to me from the time we met and as I valued your prayer support then, I still do now. I was wondering do you still comment on Julie’s Ex Cult Blog ? or have you moved on ? when my new Computer is set up, I will e-mail you, I would very much like some more of your Butterflies to give as gifts, my Funday School Children loved them and so did my friends.
