Jesus calls us His Friends

 

Jesus is our Friend

A Friend does not persecute, punish, condemn or shame.

A Friend Forgives, Accepts, Encourages and Helps.

Jesus Loves us greatly and is Always a Faithful Friend.

When Jesus our Friend speaks to us His own,

He never uses words of …

Despair, hopelessness, frustration, defeat, discouragement,

fear, confusion, or failure.

Instead, He gives us words of…

Love, Hope, Rest, Victory, Peace, Power, Joy, Triumph and

His Corrections and Warnings are firm but are given

Compassionately and in Love and we Listen and Obey.

When we speak to Jesus our Friend He responds,

 He does not ignore us or   consider what we say as insignificant,

 we don’t have to plead for Him to answer us, or wonder why He doesn’t.

Our Loving Friend Jesus never leaves us feeling unwanted or unimportant,

We are Precious to Him and He values our Friendship greatly.

We are not just a number, Our Friend Jesus knows our Name,

He chooses to need us and He is never to busy for us.

Lamentations 3: 33 For He doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

Isaiah 43:1-3 Do not be afraid for I have ransomed you, I have called you by name you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I am The LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says The LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.

Psalm 121:1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord which made Heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold He that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper: The Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy Soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth and even for evermore.

Satan our Enemy

When Satan speaks to us he condemns, falsely accuses, unjustly criticizes, belittles, slanders, ridicules,   attacks and lies to us… his words have a sharp evil cutting edge and can hurt deeply so we just ignore him.

Satan will also tell us that we can do what God says not to and that His guidelines are not for today, that it’s OK to disobey as long as we are happy but he knows it will lead to despair and fear and if we believe him he ignores us having achieved what he wanted.

Satan doesn’t care about us he wants us to feel hurt, confused, not wanted or needed and so he lies to us, tempts and tries us and we suffer but as we still do not reject The Lord or do evil but instead come close to God seeking His help then Satan having lost flees, he hates goodness.

1 Peter 4:12-13 Beloved think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you as though some strange thing happened unto you but rejoice in as much as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings that when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding Joy.

1 Peter 1:6-7 Wherein ye greatly rejoice though now for a Season if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold Temptations that the trial of your faith being much more precious than of gold that perisheth though it be tried with fire might be found unto praise and honour and Glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.

James 1:12-14 Blessed is the Man that endureth Temptation: for when he is tried he shall receive the crown of life which the Lord hath promised to them that Love Him. Let no Man say when he is Tempted, I am Tempted of God for God cannot be Tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any Man   But every Man is Tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust and enticed.

Hebrews 4:15-16 For we have not an High Priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities but was in all points tempted like as we are yet without Sin Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace that we may obtain Mercy and find Grace to help in time of need.  

1 Peter 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.

Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified and made white and tried but the wicked shall do wickedly and none of the wicked shall understand but the wise shall understand.

For those who are Jealous of Left- Handed People Lol

 

If you are Jealous of  Left-Handed people you have every right to be we are amazing, Lol…..

Seriously though it is reported by research and through observation even though there are disadvantages for those who are left-handed and yes some do complain about the limitations they find with being left-handed but there are also proven advantages as well.

They now claim there are a least 10 benefits of our being left -handed, one is that left-handed people are more skillful with their left hands when performing tasks, the link below shares about some more advantages…

Link –  https://www.sharecare.com/health/brain-nervous-system/advantages-being-left-handed

Only about 10% of the Population are left – handed, yes we are indeed a  Minority,  there has been prejudice and even abuse shown to us over the years which may account for why a large percentage of those who are left – handed have been found to suffer from depression which can lead to other disorders, we all need to feel we are people of worth.

But as also reported even though we have had to adjust to a World designed for those who are right- handed it’s been shown to be a  genetic blessing for those who are born  left- handed offering us abilities that can help us achieve our goals the same as right -handed people do.

But sadly it also seems some who are uninformed in Theology have majored over the years on the fact that the Scriptures claim that left – handed people are evil but of course it also shows that right- handed people are evil too, we have all Sinned. (Romans 3:23)

So for us to have a balanced  perspective below is a verse of Scripture that shows God who is Love does not devalue or condemn those who have been born left-handed and has even chosen them for His good works and still does today.

Judges 3:15 But when the Children of Israel cried unto The Lord, the Lord raised them up a Deliverer, Ehud the son of Gera, a Benjamite, a Man left-handed and by him the Children of Israel sent a present unto Eglon the King of Moab.(KJV)

 Thanks for listening, I enjoyed finding  more about being left- handed and I thought you might too as it helps to clear away the negative vibes .

 Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

God Used A Kitten To Answer My Prayer

Most of you who follow my Blog know that I have recently moved into a new Home and although it’s been hard work there has also been times of enjoyment but today I want to share something that happened recently as an answer to Prayer.

Most Children call me Grannie Annie and it’s also a Pen name that I use on my Blog. I have run Funday Schools for over 10 years mostly for Children who come from broken and Dysfunctional homes. I share with them often that they are Loved greatly by Jesus and that they can always talk to Him, that He understands and cares and will help them just like He does with me.

We start with Afternoon tea than I share with them Bible Stories, we than Sing and Dance with all the actions and after Music time they color in Bible Pictures or we do Craft, they can earn points and choose gifts when they reach their goals and we also play games like Charades or just sit and talk about their School or Home life and what makes them Happy or Sad.

It is very hard saying goodbye when they move, which is often as they live in mostly Rental and Housing Commission homes. I have visited them all a few times since I moved but I miss them greatly and so I asked God to help me meet other Children as He has done before and now I’m going to share with you how He did this.

After praying, the very next day a little female Kitten wandered into my yard, she was about 2-3 mths old and very affectionate so I called her Cuddles. Mo- Joe didn’t seem to mind having another furry friend around even if she didn’t know how to bark but  Mickey Moo was not impressed at all and yes let me know he wasn’t , so Thankfully I was able to find a new loving home for Cuddles but before I did I went around the Neighborhood and asked if anyone had lost a Kitten and while doing this I met a Mother and her three Children, two girls 11 and  8 and a 9 year old boy and yes they are now coming to my New Funday School.

A few days ago the Children were very upset, they told me that their Cat Garfield was lost and they had not seen him for 3 days so I prayed with them that he would be safe and find his way home again and the next Morning he was on their doorstep although hungry he was not hurt in anyway. 

Can we ever doubt that God is Love and that He is very Compassionate and Cares for us greatly and not just sometimes but all the time.

Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

I Now Know Why My Babies Died

I have only recently found out why I lost my Babies in Childbirth, I had 3 Still Born girls and 3 other Babies who died at almost 5 mths gestation, there was another Baby that was aborted when I was a young Teenager it was a horrific experience and it is one reason why I stand against Abortion today, see link below…..

 Abortion-  https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2011/11/25/mommy-please-love-me/

For many years as a Non – Christian and even as a Christian although knowing I was forgiven and One in Christ Jesus, I felt great guilt in believing because of the Abortion I may have been responsible for the death of my later Babies, it has been a heavy load to carry but God has removed it after finding out during a Pathology procedure recently that it was my Blood Type that made the Babies Miscarry and the others die at Birth.

They have only known about this irregularity in the Blood of Pregnant Woman for about 30 years which they discovered after I had lost my Children. Today Mothers have an injection which stops the Toxicity and so the Baby is no longer in danger. (see link below )

Linkhttp://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/parenting/pregnancy/expecting/67181552/pregnancy-and-your-blood-type

I have been giving Thanks to God for the Conversation with the Woman taking my Blood Sample that led me to discovering why I lost my Babies and with also knowing that  I will  be reunited in Heaven with my Children as confirmed in Scripture and in my Heart, you can imagine the Joy I’m experiencing.

We Live in a Fallen World that has sickness and death, it is not how God Created it and it is not His will we suffer, He does not willingly cause it but He is with us and gives us His Strength to endure and will intervene when needed even Miraculously. We do not walk alone in the darkness of this World, Jesus is our Guide and Light.

Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid for I have ransomed you, I have called you by name you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I am The LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel your Saviour.”

Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you says the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

Please pray with me for other Woman who have lost their Babies for whatever reason, it’s a Heartache that only The Lord can heal.

Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

Creating Fathers…..

To Loving Fathers Everywhere especially to Aussie Dads today.

Freedomborn

Many Blessings to all Fathers everywhere, I hope you enjoy your Special Day or enjoyed it whenever your Father’s Day was and have some great Memories to hold onto.

Do you know why God Created you the way He did ? It was no accident, the reason below will help to unravel the Mystery, you are indeed Unique and Needed and if you would like further reassurance listen to God’s Love Letter to you on the Power Point below the Message.  

Creating Fathers

 When the good Lord was creating Fathers, He started with a tall frame.

An Angel watching nearby said…

“What kind of Father is that?”

If you’re going to make Children so close to the ground, why have you put Fathers up so high?

 He won’t be able to shoot marbles without kneeling, tuck a Child in bed without bending or even kiss a Child…

Our Police Force

For those who are in the Police Force although rewarding it is a very hard and a stressful Occupation and one that is not  fully understood unless involved in personally. Police officers must endure long hours including shift work that is often unpredictable and crisis-driven as well as Public scrutiny and sometimes hash and unfair judgment.

With my having been evolved in Organizations that worked closely with the Police and also needing their help personally a few times myself,  I found them to be very respectful and considerate of others and also in regards to my needs, offering their support and encouragement and willing to go the extra mile if needed..

It grieves me to hear the Police put down instead of commended for the work they do, of course like all Professions there is always a few who are not dedicated to the overall requirements of their role in our Communities but most Police are and give much more than expected when needed.

Below is short Poem that focuses on the Role of the Police in our Lives.

The Thin Blue Line

 A Thin Blue Line winds through our Country,

Keeping us all Safe and Free. 

 Their lives at risk a Thankless task,

But every day this we ask.

 They could be your Sister….Brother,

Protecting all like there’s no other.

 Give praise to those who us Protect,

And to our Police please give respect.

 By Mariette Supple

1 Timothy 2:1-3 I exhort therefore that first of all supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving of Thanks be made for all Men. For Kings and for all that are in Authority that we may lead a quiet and Peaceable life in all Godliness and Honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour (KJV)

 Let’s Pray for our Police Force and if the opportunity presents itself Thank them also for a job well done.

 Christian Love and Blessings – Anne

I became a Christian after being an Atheist for almost 30 years

Yes I was an Atheist at least in my thinking although not my heart for almost 30 years after being deceived as a young Teenager that I came from an Ape my Mother and Teacher also told me that Jesus and the Bible were just made up and I had been lied to. My focus became very Worldly and I messed up big time but as a Child Jesus was my Best Friend and I have no doubt now that He never stopped Loving me even though I must have hurt Him greatly.

Now I do like Bananas but the unproven Theories that we evolved from Animals or that we come from The Big Bang have now been proven to be impossible both by Scientists who are Christians and take God’s Inspired words in Scripture literally and have now proven them now to be True and also by Medical Science that also leaves no doubt that we didn’t evolve from Animals. (see links below)

https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2015/10/03/wow-a-new-missing-link-has-been-found/

https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2012/08/01/gods-6-days-of-creation/

https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2014/02/04/believing-in-the-evolution-theory-causes-loss-of-hope/

But I believed what my  Mother and Teacher told me for many years which left me vulnerable to Satan’s attacks on my life because I walked in Sin but God intervened and saved my life 3 Times even when I was deceived that He did not exist but also later knowing He was real  but falling into Sin again, He again healed me Miraculously of two other life threatening Conditions after I had Heart Repentance and was Anointed by an Elder and there has been more Healings since and I have also had Signs and Wonders witnessed by others and unable for anyone but God to do. 

How did God reach out to me in my deception, it was by Hospitality, Ron and I had gone to see a Pastor about getting Married, it was a Church close to where we were going to have the Reception and a Denomination  that Ron had belonged to since he was a Child, he wanted to be Married in Church, I didn’t but he was insistent so I relented.

The Pastor asked Ron if he was a Believer in God and he said yes, when he asked me I boldly said No that we came from Apes, although he didn’t argue with me he did challenge me by saying if I was not narrow minded I would come to Church and hear the Gospel and than decide what was Truth,  I didn’t want to appear to be narrow minded so I agreed.

Wow was I overwhelmed by the friendliness and kindness of the Christians attending this Church and also by the Pastor and his caring wife, although at first I was very angry at hearing I was a Sinner and that I would go to Hell if I didn’t have Heart repentance which would show I believed in Jesus as my Lord and Saviour.

I was making a quick exist when I saw my Sunday School Teacher she had also been a Neighbor where I lived as a Child, I was told she had lied to me about Jesus being real and so I had avoided her ever since but she was so pleased to see me and  said she had been praying for me for years, I was polite to her but I was still angry and wanted to get out of that Church and go home.

As Ron and I were about to get into the Car a Couple invited us for Lunch at their place after Church the following week, Ron said yes and thanked them and than we drove off but you can be sure Ron heard a mouthful after all we came from Apes and Hell was just made up to frighten people into believing in a Santa in the Sky, Ron  asked if I would still go to Lunch, I said yes but that I would not listen to the Pastor anymore, Ron said OK!

To condense my Story, for the next 6 weeks we were asked to Lunch by other Members of the Church, No it was not a set up, the Pastor had talked about the importance of Hospitality before we even came to the Church and so being new we were asked to Lunch by those who had been challenged by his Message.

The Pastor and his wife  than asked us to Lunch and by this time after hearing God’s Truth during the last 7 weeks and experiencing the friendliness and kindness of those who were part of the Church. I was  overwhelmed with the Truth that God did exist  and that Jesus had died to save me from Eternal Separation  from Him in Hell,  yes I did listen to the Pastor and I’m so Thankful I did and I also came to believe having it confirmed by their words and actions that these Christians were Special and Trustworthy too.

Ron and I were Married and remained at that Church for over 20 years, we were like a Family, Ron became their Senior Elder and later their Interim Minister before he retired and we came to Queensland to live. I was Baptized and became evolved in the Ministries of the Church and experienced much Joy in fellowship and yes in giving and receiving Hospitality too.

Below is a Poem in which I wrote about Jesus’ Hospitality, can anything be more wonderful than His Banqueting Table full of Spiritual food.

 

 Loving Hospitality

I stand and knock at the door of your heart seeking your Love right from the start.

 Wanting to set you free giving Hope, Joy and Liberty for only my presence within

 can take away the bondage of Sin.

What I offer the world cannot give a Hospitality that lets you live.

The food that I Lovingly impart heals and mends a broken heart restoring and

giving Peace and leaving Joy that is released.

My Living Water fills your soul overflowing and making you whole

taking away the fear and carnage of Sin as the Spirit

 comes to live within.

These are my promises your Lord and King as you open the door and let me in,

 giving a Love beyond compare in which you will always share and

then you will know without a doubt that this is what real Love is all about.

Will you welcome Me  into your heart home, I offer you My Love it has always

been there for you, I long to Bless you greatly to set you free

so you can be in Unity with me.

So come my Child, do not be afraid, take my hand and let me lead the way and

My Spirit will help you to Trust and Obey.

Penned by Annie

Revelation 3:19-21  Behold I stand at the door and knock if any man hear my voice and open the door I will come in to him and will sup with him and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my Throne even as I also overcame and am set down with my Father in His Throne. (KJV)

Thank you for sharing with me some of my journey with The Lord.

 Christian Love Always – Anne.

Thank you for your Prayers for Ron

Once again God has Faithfully answered our Prayers, Ron’s Cancer is in Remission and he is no longer having Chemo, last week the Doctor told him that his results were very good and he was out of danger. Can we ever stop Thanking God for His Love and Compassion for us.

Ron still lives with his daughter but visits me when he is able, we are going through a crisis in our Marriage and have for some time. We have been Married 35 years and have shared in Ministry together and had some very Special times to remember with Joy but also sad times that we would prefer to forget.

When we  Love we want to be in Unity, it is why God sent Jesus and yes I want this for Ron and myself too, I have shared about our problems with a few of you and have asked for your Prayer Support which I greatly value and I would appreciate more Heartfelt Prayer from anyone else who feels lead to Pray for us.

I have no doubt that God works everything for good in our lives even hardship and troubled Marriages, our responsibility is to be Faithful to continue to Love and Trust Him, obeying His guidelines and to seek to Love, Pray for and forgive those who hurt us.

Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

JESUS NEVER SAID…..

Thank you Cristina for a very needed Message and yes a warning to those who are deceived because of Roman Catholic Teaching, Orthodox and Coptics and other so called Christian Teaching that distorts God’s Truth, which often leads to despair and even rejection of Christianity as confirmed in the Scriptures.

Do we reject as worthwhile people those who belong to these Churches and Organizations, No like those in Cults they are deceived in their Teaching but most of them Love God and are seeking to serve Him even if confused in  their understanding of Him but He knows their Hearts like He knows ours, He knows those who are His and has from Eternity and He will rescue them as He did me and many others.

Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

Does God Send Babies to Hell

You may think this a strange thing to ask and will no doubt reply without hesitation; “Of course God doesn’t send Babies to Hell ” and you would be right with the confirmation of Scripture but sadly some believe He does.

At a Bible Study I attended years ago which focused on Calvinism teaching, both the Minister and his Wife told me my 7 Babies had gone to Hell, I have had 3 Stillborn girls and the others except for one, I lost at almost 5 mths gestation.

I was the first Woman to have an Ultrasound for Pregnancy in Australia but they were unable to save my Baby, going by the Medical report there were Toxic substances in my Body but the Doctors were never sure about most of the other Babies but you can be sure we will all be United in Heaven but not according to those who believe they are all now in Hell suffering Eternally.

Deuteronomy 1: 39 Moreover your little ones which ye said should be a prey and your Children which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil they shall go in thither and unto them will I give it and they shall possess it.

I knew the Scriptures and shared with this Couple and the others in the Bible Study who were of course nodding in agreement with them that until a Child is of an age of understanding they go to Heaven as confirmed above and in other Scriptures, perhaps you know of more.

They than claimed that because I wasn’t a Christian at the time I conceived my Babies they were all doomed. I assured them again confirming with Scripture (see below ) that a Child is not punished for the Sins of their Parents and that my Babies were save in Heaven in God’s Loving arms and Protection but they rejected the Scriptures I shared and yes me too claiming I would not accept Teaching and so was a Trouble maker, I left their Church.

Deuteronomy 24 :16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the Children neither shall the Children be put to death for the fathers every Man shall be put to death for his own Sin.

2 Chronicles 25:4 But he slew not their Children but did as it is written in the Law in the book of Moses, where the LORD commanded, saying;”The fathers shall not die for the Children neither shall the Children die for the fathers but every man shall die for his own Sin.” (KJV)

I am a strong believer in a Loving, Merciful God who would not send a baby to Hell to suffer Eternally, how could they understand about Salvation, I also know the Scriptures which are in agreement with my focus. But what if I had been a new Christian or did not know the Scriptures and I had been told this horrific wrong teaching, you can image how horrified and greatly grieved I would have been.

Yes I was very upset that they would claim this untruth but realized they were very deceived as I Thankfully knew the Scriptures to refute their claims and I also had God’s confirmation in my Heart and in a Poem which He led me to write in 2006 (see below)

Matthew 19:13-14 Then were there brought unto Him little Children that He should put His hands on them and pray and the Disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said; “Suffer little Children and forbid them not to come unto me for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven.”

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

Matthew 18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones for I say unto you; That in Heaven their Angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in Heaven.(KJV)

The words King David said that Cristina shared in her Comment below is also confirmation that Children go to Heaven. When he lost his Child with Bathsheba, he said; “The Child will not come to me but I will go to him”  yes as confirmed in this Scripture, King David knew he would one day be reunited with his son and not in Hell. (2 Samuel 12:23)

Below is a Poem I wrote and as with all my Poetry I felt the Lord’s leading through The Holy Spirit and was very comforted by it. I was going to write a Poem about the value of Loving Mothers for Mothers Day but this Poem flowed instead. At the time I did not know all I know today as I had not asked for God’s Wisdom and Empowering but you will see His Truth is confirmed in my Poem although I did not know why I lost my Babies although I have tried to reason why this happened but one thing I’m very sure of today is that God did not kill them and than send them to Hell.

Jesus Holds My Babies

I never held my Babies in a warm and Loving embrace or watched with wonder

the joy that brightened their face,

I never saw their smiles or held them in my arms or was I ever enraptured

by all their Childlike charms.

Although my dreams were many and I longed to hold them close the

joy of their Childhood I never was to know.

Part of me was taken the day they laid them to rest and yet in my heart

I knew it was for the best.

All the pain and anguish I had within my soul needed to be healed

before I could be whole.

They are my precious ones and will always be in my heart and

my Love for them will never ever depart.

Do I understand God’s purposes in this life I may never know

but I trust and believe His promise that with Him only

His Love will be shown.

For deep within my heart I know without a doubt that my Children

are in Heaven that’s what grace is all about.

God knew from the beginning that their life on earth was short,

He holds them in His arms and His joy they have always known,

calling them by name they are a part of His Eternal Home

for He knew them in His Heart right from the very start.

My Heavenly Father knows my pain and He listens to my cry and

with deep Compassion He wipes the tears from my eyes.

He fills my heart with wonder holding me close in His arms and

nothing can compare not the world and all it’s charms.

He understands my needs for He sees within my soul and

other Children’s arms He gives to ease the pain and His Love

is not restrained as He makes me whole again.

Knowing Joy that only a mother’s Love can feel for the wonder

 of His Children the Lord gives to help us heal.

We are God’s Children and are fully known sharing our happiness,

turmoil and pain but we no longer bear any shame,

As we walk together His way we have come to know putting our Trust

in Christ Jesus His Hope and Joy will show.

Often I wonder how it would have been if I had known my Children

as they fulfilled their dreams.

Did I need the Compassion that not sharing with them would bring,

Does this thorn I have give Love within my heart for all of

God’s Children who are being torn apart.

This is something I may never understand but God holds me by

my hand giving His Joy that only His Love can impart deep in my heart.

I will never hold the Children that I carried under my breast

not until in Heaven I reach my Eternal rest,

But God’s grace was shown and my life has been greatly blessed.

So thank you all for being a part of the wonder and Joy in my heart

for even in the hard times when in pain I shed a tear

I know that in Jesus arms He will take away my fear and

by giving you His Compassion and His Love He draws me near.

Our Heavenly Father’s Awesome Love

.

I found a Poem recently that really touched my Heart, I felt it was about my life and how God understood and cared even when I didn’t know Him, I will share it with you below.

I have always loved Poetry but I could never write it except for a few attempts, one was when I was 14, it was cryptic which I realized much later in life, it was about a Mermaid who had lost her Merman Love and in my Heart that was Jesus, I was told He was just made up like the Bible and that I came from an Ape and so I became an Atheist in my thinking for about 30 years until I was shown God’s reality in His Creation . Another Poem I wrote was when I was caring for Children, I made it into a Song using a Christian tune without even realizing it and the other two Poems I wrote in my early Twenties, they were short and very sad but Jesus gave me years later wonderful endings for them.

To write Poetry is very hard for most people who are  Dyslectic, we can’t rhyme or write fluently, some do improve with help but I have always had problems until I started Blogging, now when writing Posts and Comments they just flow and the Scripture comes to me too, although I’m still a cracked vessel with spelling and punctuation etc there is help today with Firefox and other programs  but Thankfully God’s The Superglue and amazingly  in 2006 I started writing Poetry and couldn’t stop, to save detail here I will leave a link for you, it was incredible and so was God’s Ink which was very much a Miracle, confirming His anointing of my Poetry.

 Anointed Poetry –    https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2012/04/15/gods-ink-anointed-poetry-1/

The Poem below that I want to share with you was written by Shirley Winter, it’s called “The Father’s Love ” I’m Thankful to Shirley for the confirmation she gave in her Poem  about our Abba Father’s Awesome Love and Compassion for us. Can we understand how wonderful it is, perhaps not but we can know He Loves us greatly and just as we are even though He still wants us to Mature and be conformed into the image of Jesus and to be Perfected in His Love because than we will be Complete and One with Him in Spirit.

 

       The Father’s Love.

 The girl was filled with sorrow as she knelt before The Lord,

And poured out her heart before The Heavenly Father she Adored.

She spoke about her Childhood and the Love she’d never found,

And relived the painful memories before The Lord on Holy Ground.

 

The Lord was filled with Compassion as she knelt before her King,

And He said; Come take refuge in the shadow of my Wings.

Here you will find comfort and those memories I will mend,

I Am The Alpha, The Omega, The Beginning and The End.

 

He said; My Child I Loved you long before you were Born and

I will always be here for you through each raging Storm,

I promise I will never leave you, no matter what you do,

Put your Trust and Hope in Me and I will see you through.

 

When life’s problems seem too much My Child,

And you don’t know what to do,

Put your weight on my shoulders and I will carry you through.

Remember there is no Prayer that I do not heed,

My Beloved Child don’t you know that I’m all you need.

by Shirley Winter.

 Below is a Song and Scripture that also touches my Heart greatly, I hope you will be blessed by both the Poem, Song and the Scripture, Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

.

1John 4:16-17 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God and God in him. Herein is our Love made Perfect that we may have boldness in the day of judgment because as He is so are we in this World.

1 John 4:10-12 Herein is Love not that we Loved God but that He Loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our Sins. Beloved if God so Loved us we ought also to Love One another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we Love One another God dwelleth in us and His Love is Perfected in us.

I Was A White Witch

I wanted to share with you again the dangers of The Occult, so many including some Christians are blind to the danger it presents, it’s Satan’s Playground and leads to mind Control and eventually Heartache and Despair.

Please feel free to share your own experiences or warnings either below or on the original Post.

Blessings – Anne.

Freedomborn

Bewitched WAs a very young Teenager I use to watch Bewitched and in my immaturity I thought how good it would be to do spells like Samantha the star of the show and be a white Witch like her and help others.SD

Well the seeds were planted and later I became involved in the Occult, not knowing it’s danger but I never joined a Coven where they learn Satan’s deeper secrets and worship him and do evil to please him but what I was learning  and sharing was still a very dangerous focus and could have led to this, I thank God although wounded, I was not destroyed.

lucifer-angel-of-light WSo what is a white Witch, some call themselves Wiccans  but it is all about Satan’s deception, the Occult is his playground where he seeks to screw up peoples minds and  their lives with his lies,  he comes as an Angel of light offering empty hope seeking to cause fear and destroy inner Peace and…

Wonderful Answers To Our Prayers

 

Thank you to all those who Prayed for Micky Moo to be able to continue living with me, the Council granted a special permit so he could, I rejoice that God heard our Prayers and answered them. He tells us that He will be with us His Redeemed Children through every difficulty that Satan and Life brings and for us not to worry but to Trust Him…..

Isaiah 43:1-3 “Do not be afraid for I have ransomed you I have called you by name you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel your Saviour.”When I was attacked by the Great Dane just before I moved and one of my front teeth was broken, I was advised that the Government no longer gave vouchers to Private Dentists and that there was a long wait for the Hospital Dental appointments, I prayed and God intervened and a cancellation meant I could be seen straight away.

The same day my Scooter ran out of Battery power just after getting a Tetanus shot at the Doctors, I called the R.A.C.Q and was advised by them that there was up to a two hour wait for someone to be available to help me, I prayed again and help arrived in Ten minutes, the Service Man said he had no other call outs so could come straight away.

But what was also amazing was if the Battery had not flattened I would have been caught in a violent Storm on my Scooter going home, it hit just as we were returning home in the R.A.C.Q Truck, I arrived home save and sound and so did the Scooter. I thank God for His intervention He knows all things and works everything for good in our lives because we Love Him, He never seeks to hurt us or cause us to grieve, His plans for us are very good.

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.

Thank you again for all your Prayers and Support.

Christian Love Always – Anne.

I’m Back and looking forward to Sharing with you all again.

Yes I’m back on Line again, it took over a month from the time I was disconnected from the Internet for NBN to reconnect me. I’m now in my New Home but you can be sure even if a Stitch in Time saves nine, it does not work the same with Boxes, they just keep coming but each day I’m getting closer to the last one although I’m making new ones for the Garage Sale. It has been hard physically because of my Accident and with the Disability with my feet but with help I have achieved much and my new Home is looking good.

But I need your Prayers urgently , the Council is saying because I live in a Duplex with less land now I can only have one Dog and Mickey Moo has to go, you can imagine how upset I am and so will Mo-Joe be, they are now good friends. I’m seeking help so Mickey Moo can stay with me, my backyard is more than big enough for two small dogs.

Thank you again for your Prayers and Support over the years and for all of you who also Commented and visited Freedomborn over the last month and yes I now have to catch up and with all your Posts, although a Blogging friend said just start from the ones you receive now but I would like to share in some of your Posts that I have missed especially those you would like to share with me, so please leave their links and I will respond as well as to those who have commented on my Blog.

Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

I’m Moving Soon

Not long now and I will be Moving into a New Home, I’m still Packing, with Ron, Nick and some of my friends helping me but with having had an accident recently on my Mobility Scooter and tearing the Tendons in my shoulder I’m finding it a bigger job than I had anticipated and at times very painful.

But I do very much appreciate all my friends and Blogging friends, Support and Prayers, I’m sure that without you and them I would have been battling much more and perhaps given up and stayed in bed but instead I’m taking a day at a time and giving Thanks to God for what I achieve each day and the pain relief I do have.

Today I had a Party for the Children I share with in my Neighborhood, some came to my Funday School, I will miss them greatly although I have been asked if I would continue Funday School in one of the Children’s homes so they can all still come, I said I would but the Mother were it will be held is often not well so we will see how it works out.

In reference to Blogging, with the changeover to N.B.N. in Australia it may be up to a month before I’m reconnected to the Internet but I hope to find some way of keeping in touch like I have done when my Computers crashed in the past but if not you will all be in my thoughts and Prayers.

Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

P.S Now were did I put my Coffee, which Box is it in!

In Heaven, Will You Remember Unsaved Loved Ones?

Thank you David for sharing with the confirmation of Scripture the assurance that those we Love who to our knowledge never had Heart Repentance showing their acceptance of Jesus as their Lord and Saviour will not be remembered by us in Heaven and why they won’t be.

Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

A Heart Note to Jesus My Lord and Savior

I’m very Thankful for the Love, Support and Prayers of my Friends and Blogging Friends as I have been going through a Storm lately with a Dog Attacking me, an Accident on my Motorized Wheelchair, which is now damaged and an Operation may be needed for my full recovery as I have badly torn ligaments, Computer and Phone problems and the need to keep Packing regardless of the pain I’m suffering as I’m moving to a new Home in the very near future.

We can be thankful that all good things come from God not bad, we have free will and can reap the bad that we sow just like the Prodigal son did it’s God’s Discipline but Wow what a welcome Home when we repent and as we can see with Paul’s trials below we are also afflicted through accidents that Life brings and the evil in the World as Satan seeks to cause us to fall away and reject Jesus but Thankfully how good it is that Satan can’t harm us Eternally, God protects our Soul and He keeps us strong to the end.

2 Corinthians 11:24-31 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own Countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the Churches. Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not? If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.

What did Paul hold onto in his trials, what kept him safe so he was not burned up by Satan’s Testing, yes the same empowering that keeps us strong to the end.

Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel your Saviour.”

Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you says the LORD thoughts of peace and not of evil to give you a future and a hope.

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

But even with all the Hardship I have been going through recently and yes God has been with me too strengthening and encouraging me,  nothing is as bad as when I didn’t know Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. Below is a short Note I wrote to Him a few years after He knocked at my Hearts door and I opened it. I now seek to share His  Petals of Truth and Joy with others.

Another Accident – Prayer Needed

 

Dear Blogging friends once again I need your Prayers which I value greatly, I had another Accident on my Motorized Wheelchair which was very similar to the one I had last year, I believe there may be something wrong with the suspension as they are not suppose to topple over.

The Accident happened on Tuesday afternoon and two days before I was attacked by a Great Dane dog, which was strange because it had been very friendly before, I’m still recovering from both. Once again I received amazing help after the accident and the dog attack which I thank God for, He knows the help we need and when we need it and also gives us the strength to endure whatever Life brings, it is not Him who causes our Suffering and Hardship as He tells us much more than once in Scripture.

The Doctor has ordered a more extensive Ultrasound to see if an Operation will be needed, he said from what he could see the Tendons are badly torn and that I’m internally bleeding near them, he believes it will take up to six weeks or longer for me to recover. Thankfully no bones were broken but I’m badly bruised down my left side. The pain is constant even as I type this Message but with using God’s Balm and Prayer it’s considerably much less than it was yesterday when I couldn’t even move my arm without intense pain which left me in tears.

I will seek to continue to Blog as much as possible but as I shared before I’m also moving in the near future to a new home, so I’m sorry but it will need to be limited mainly to those who share or join up with Freedomborn.

A few friends have offered to help pack and one of them is looking after me for the next few days until I recover enough to do the essentials such as cooking, shopping etc, which I very much appreciate as Ron is limited in the help he can give with him having Chemo regularly, he is also still living with his Daughter Carolyn who is caring for him but we do keep in contact and he visits when he can, this is not how I want it to be but it is how it is.

Thank you again for your Support and Prayers Christian Love Always – Anne.

My Own Challenge – Quote 7

The Key Question in Life…..

 I now have my own Challenge to face, I’m moving house and it seems like I have a lifetime of goods that need to be downsized but how do I downsize Mickey Moos toys, he won’t let me near them especially his favorite a Bone- e-o which he squeaks all the time including at sleep time (Hmmmm who Brought it for him) and Mo-Joe with all his mats, plus his cuddly towels and of course his toys too, some of which he pulls apart, that is if Mickey Moo doesn’t run off with them first, yes you can be sure their not into downsizing.

Seriously with Psoriatic Arthritis in my feet and needing to rest them often, a few Friends including my Blogging Friends have prayed for added Strength for me and so the Quote above that I chose for my own Challenge inspires me to keep looking up!

Thanks for your continued Prayers – Anne.

Grandmother’s are Special

Today is Mothers Day and many Mums will be remembered with Love and Thankfulness, gifts and flowers will be in abundance and the Family get togethers will long be remembered with joy.

 Mother’s Day for me is very different  it brings back Memories of my Seven little ones who are in Heaven but Thankfully over the years my Arms and Heart have been filled with other peoples Children especially those who come to my  Funday School although this year because I’m moving which I will share about with you soon, I don’t have Funday School running  and I am very much missing the Children, although they do come and visit for a short time and we talk about many things and often about Jesus too and I remind them that He Loves them very much just as He does us.

This Morning I had two of the young girls  visit me for Mothers Day, they had made me a beautiful card, yes I’m very Blessed to be Grannie Annie to these Children.

I’m sure you will agree with me that Grandmothers all types are indeed Special too, especially to their Grandchildren as we can see below, sit back, relax and enjoy “Grandmother’s are Special”…..

.

Grandmother’s are Special…

A Letter from a very young Granddaughter…

 A Grandmother is a lady who has no Children of her own. She likes other people’s little girls and boys. A Grandfather is a man Grandmother, he goes for walks with the boy’s and they take them fishing and stuff like that.

                                   

Grandmothers don’t have to do anything except to be there. They’re so old that they shouldn’t play hard or run. It is enough if they drive us to the market where the pretend horse is and have lots of coins ready. Or if they take us for walks they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars, they never say, “Hurry up.”

 Some Grandmothers are big, but not too big to tie your shoes.

They wear glasses and  funny underwear

                  

                           They can take their teeth and gums off.

    Grandmothers don’t have to be smart, only answer questions like,

”Why isn’t God married?” and “How come dogs chase cats?”

                                                    

Grandmothers don’t talk baby talk like visitors do, because it is hard to understand.

When they read to us they don’t skip, or mind if it’s the same story over again and they are good  fun. 

                                            

  Everybody should try to have a Grandmother, especially if they don’t have a Television, because they are only grown-ups who have time.

 

 Grandmothers Give Great hugs …….

 

.

Love your Grandmother she is worth it (Grandfather is too!)

Young Children’s Thoughts About Love

 

Touching words from the mouths of babes. What does ‘Love’ mean to them?

 A group of Teachers posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds… What does ‘Love’ mean to you?’

 The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think…

When my Grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my Grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s Love. Rebecca- age 8                                                 

‘When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’      Billy – age 4  

‘Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.’  Karl – age 5

‘Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries but don’t make them give you any of theirs. Chrissy 6                 

 Love is what makes you smile even when you’re tired.

 Terri  age 4    

                                                                                              
‘Love is when my Mummy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.’-
Danny – age 7

 Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mummy and Daddy are like that.

    But they look gross when they kiss’ – Emily – age 8  


‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.’ Bobby – age 7 Wow!                                                              
                                                                                                    
‘If you want to learn to Love better, you should start with a friend who you hate, ( we need a few million more Nikka’s on this planet ) ‘Nikka – age 6  

‘Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, and then he wears it everyday.’Noelle – age 7

 ‘Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.’ Tommy – age 6

During my Piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling…

 He was the only one doing that.  

 I wasn’t scared anymore – Cindy aged 8 years        

My Mummy loves me more than anybody. You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.’ Clare – age 6

‘Love is when Mummy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.   Elaine-age 5

 Love is when Mummy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford     Chris – age 7

Love is when your Puppy licks your face even after you have left him alone all day.


Mary Ann – age 4

.

I know my older sister Loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.’ Lauren – age 4

 When you Love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down       

 and little stars come out of you Karen – age 7                 

Love is when Mummy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross.’
Mark – age 6           ( Children’s Potty Talk. )       

 ‘You really shouldn’t say ‘I Love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.’ Jessica – age 8

 A Very  Caring Child…
And the final one — An Author and Lecturer  once shared about  a true story  he had heard concerning a very young boy with a caring heart.
The Child was a four year old boy  and the next door Neighbour was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the young boy  went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

  When his Mother asked what he had said to the Neighbour, the Child said,’Nothing, I just helped him cry.’ 

Childhood is a very special time in our lives a time of discovery and Joy and yet their needs to be a time to let go of Childish ways, thoughts, humor and ideas and a time of  embracing or accepting who we are as Adults, focusing and seeking for the True values and those things that define us as people of worth with an Inheritance and a purpose. No longer confused but able to participate in the Divine calling with passion and Joy offering God’s Hope in Love to others.    

But yes we are to be Childlike, in what is good, often Children have perceptions that sometimes Adults can lack but we are not to be Childish, we are to be like Children  in our Innocence and  Dependence on the Lord seeking Him with Trust and Thankfulness not trying to be in control but allowing Him to Guide and Teach us and being Honest and Open with Him and others.

How wonderful when we listen to the Lord and believe that no matter what happens He will cause all things to work together for Good because we Love Him and this is shown by our obedience to His will and because of this He has Chosen us to bear much fruit so we will Mature Spiritually and be Perfected in Love.

1 Corinthians 13:11When we were Children we talked in a Childish way, we had Childish thoughts and we reasoned like a Child but when we matured we no longer held onto Childish ways, we put them behind us.

Another Amazing Answer to Prayer

 

Last week I had another answer to Prayer, I was visiting a Church with a friend but found it hard because I was suffering from a sprained toe and  Bursitis of the hip, a condition I have had for years which needs Steroids for strong pain relief. I could hardly walk and needed to sit down for most of the Service. I asked the Associate Minister for Prayer hoping I would have God’s Strength to endure but the pain completely disappeared instead and I have not suffered with it since even though an Ultrasound on Monday showed the Bursitis was OK but that my lower back joint was now inflamed, so why No continuing pain for that time….. God is so very Good and so very Loving and Compassionate and He is with us through all Life brings.

Isaiah 43:1-3  Do not be afraid for I have ransomed you. I have called you by Name you are Mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned up the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD your God The Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you says the LORD thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

Another Special happening last week was from a Blogging friend, in the years I have been Blogging I have met some very Kind and Caring Christian Men and Woman and they have offered Godly advice, they have Encouraged and Uplifted me, Prayed for me and Supported me and some still do which I also shared about on the link below.

For Those Who Claim There is No Trinity

The Godhead or Trinity as we call Them today both meaning Three  in One, are Abba Father, Jesus The Living Word and The Holy Ghost.  The Scriptures I have shared below Fully Confirm The Trinity who are One in Spirit although they have different Roles in The Godhead, The Abba Father always being in final Authority, Jesus is not God The Father but is One with Him in Spirit having been conceived by The Holy Ghost.

1 Corinthians 15:27 -28  For He hath put all things under His feet. But when He saith all things are put under Him, it is manifest that He is excepted which did put all things under Him.  And when all things shall be subdued unto Him then shall the Son also Himself  be subject unto Him that put all things under Him that God may be all in all.

It is The Holy Spirit that confirms Their reality  in our hearts (1Corinthians 2:9-16)  which is also confirmed in the Scripture below.

1Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no Man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed and that no man can say that Jesus is The LORD but by the Holy Ghost.

The word Trinity was first used in the 18th Century, the same as Dinosaurs, they were originally called Dragons or Leviathans and are mentioned in the Old Testament . Aids is also mentioned in the New Testament and D.N.A but not by those names. The word Rapture is also relatively new but is called The First Sickle in Revelation and is also referred to by connection in Luke and other Scriptures.

1John 5:7 For there are Three that bear record in Heaven, The Father, The Word and The Holy Ghost and these Three are One.

Yes some Translations do leave the above  Scripture out that is referring to The Godhead or Trinity, I use the K.J.V but the way we can be sure it was in the original is if it is also confirmed in other Scriptures ( see below) there are more of course that confirm. 1John 5:7

I have found that Members of J.W, the Mormons and Christadelphians, although they reject The Trinity they still Love Jesus and seek to serve Him but their understanding of Him is in error, the same as  with other important Truths, they do not call Jesus LORD of Lords  (Revelation19:15-16) They are being deceived by their False Teachers and because of their own Translations that distorts God’s Inspired Words. They cannot mature in Christ Jesus or know His reality when they reject His Truth in Scripture.

So are we to hate those who teach error, No we are to Love even our enemies but just as we would not accept what they say and do that is evil so we do not accept or welcome teaching that deceives and pollutes, rubbish in rubbish out but if we hold onto bitterness and resentment towards anyone or seek revenge, we will suffer ourselves, it eats away all the goodness in us, instead we Pray for them.

As I shared before the Scriptures below fully Confirm The Trinity, take time to read them and if lead to than share them with others so they will also be prepared if asked about the reality of The Trinity or Godhead as they are called in Scripture.

Jesus being conceived by The Holy Ghost had God’s seed not Adams and was in the Spirit fully God the same as The Holy Ghost.

Colossians 2:9 For in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

Isaiah 9:6-7 For unto us a Child is Born, unto us a Son is given and the Government shall be upon His shoulder and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His Government and Peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and upon His Kingdom to order it and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

John 14:8-11 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered; “Don’t you know me Philip even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say; ‘Show us the Father’? Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you I do not speak on my own Authority. Rather it is the Father living in me who is doing His work. Believe me when I say that I am in The Father and The Father is in me or at least believe on the evidence of the Works themselves.

One of Jesus’ Spiritual Names which shows His Divinity is Emmanuel, meaning God with us.

Matthew 1:22-23 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the Prophet, saying, Behold, a Virgin shall be with Child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His Name Emmanuel which being interpreted is; God with us.

Jesus is The Living Word another Spiritual Name showing His Divinity.

John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the Light of men. And the Light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Genesis 1:26 – 27 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.

Colossians 1:14 -17 In whom we have redemption through His Blood even the forgiveness of Sins. Who is the image of the invisible God the firstborn of every Creature. For by Him were all things Created that are in Heaven and that are in earth visible and invisible whether they be Thrones or Dominions or Principalities or Powers all things were Created by Him and for Him and He is before all things and by Him all things consist.

The Scripture below also shows Jesus Divinity, Jesus never sinned, if He had He could not have been our Sacrificial Lamb to Redeem us. Jesus is good, He is God in Spirit.

Matthew 17a And He said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but One, that is God.

What does it mean to call Jesus the Rock which is another Spiritual Name showing His Divinity …..

Deuteronomy 32:3-5 Because I will publish the Name of the LORD, ascribe ye greatness unto our God. He is the Rock, His work is Perfect for all His ways are judgment a God of Truth and without iniquity just and right is He.

Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my Rock and my Fortress and my Deliverer, my God, my Strength in whom I will Trust, my Buckler and The Horn of my Salvation and my High Tower.(KJV)

Psalm 18:31 For who is God save The LORD? or who is a Rock save our God?(KJV)

Psalm 18:46 The LORD Liveth and Blessed be my Rock and let the God of my Salvation be Exalted.(KJV)

1 Corinthians 10:3-5 And did all eat the same Spiritual meat and did all drink the same Spiritual drink for they drank of that Spiritual Rock that followed them and that Rock was Christ.

Jesus is The Lord of Hosts, another Spiritual Name also showing His Divinity…..

Isaiah 54 :5 For thy Maker is thine Husband The Lord of Hosts is His Name and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel The God of the whole earth shall He be called.

Jesus said as we see confirmed below; I Am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, The Almighty.

Revelation 1:7-8  Behold  He cometh with clouds and every eye shall see Him and they also which pierced Him and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so Amen I Am Alpha and Omega The Beginning and The Ending saith the LORD which is and which was and which is to come The Almighty.

Revelation 19:15-16 And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the Nations and He shall rule them with a rod of iron and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a Name written, KING OF Kings and LORD OF Lords.

Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day and heard behind me a great voice as of a trumpet Saying; I Am Alpha and Omega The First and The Last:

Revelation 1:18  Fear not, I Am the First and the Last I am He that liveth and was dead and behold I Am alive for evermore Amen and have the keys of Hell and of death.(KJV)

Revelation 21:5-7 And He that sat upon the Throne said; Behold I make all things new. And He said unto me; Write for these words are true and faithful. And He said unto me, It is done. I Am Alpha and Omega The Beginning and The End. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcometh shall inherit all things and I will be his God and he shall be my son.(KJV)

Revelation 22:12-13 And behold I come quickly and my Reward is with me to give every man according as his work shall be. I Am Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and The End, The First and The Last. KJV)

Thank you for  Seeking God’s Truth in Scripture.

Christian Love in Christ Jesus – Anne.

13 Kinds Of People Jesus Encountered On His Way To The Cross

A very good Synopsis Victor of the people Jesus encountered on the day He was Crucified, although Reblogged Messages mostly don’t have much response, I appreciate very much the kindness and encouragement of those who have done so with mine and when I read something as comprehensive and thought provoking as this Post of yours Victor, I want to say Thank you and encourage you by Reblogging your Message so others can also read and enjoy it too.

Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

The way to the Cross of Jesus People Jesus met on His way to the Cross.

Jesus encountered many kinds of people on the day He was crucified. This post takes a close look at the roles played by these people from His trial to His eventual crucifixion.

1. The elders and the chief priests.

These were the religious power brokers wielding tremendous influence over the people and the government of the day. Over time, this strict sect of people became offended with Jesus, because they felt threatened by His rising popularity and the way He has been tackling them on various contentious issues.

They were losing followers to Jesus. And the more accepted Jesus became amongst the people, the less relevant it appeared that these revered religious group became. Out of sheer envy, they delivered Jesus to governor Pilate to have Him destroyed.

They conspired to have Jesus crucified and they had their way, without knowing…

For those who Claim Jesus was not Resurrected

Satan as we know is the father of Lies and one that is Propagated today and was when Jesus was Crucified, is that Jesus was not Resurrected. So how do we know He was, yes He is in our heart and we don’t need persuading His reality is shown in our lives but also because God tells us He did in His inspired Words in the Scriptures and He is not a liar.

Luke 24:2-8 Now upon the first day of the week very early in the Morning they came unto the Sepulchre bringing the spices which they had prepared and certain others with them and they found the stone rolled away from the Sepulchre and they entered in and found not the body of The Lord Jesus and it came to pass as they were much perplexed thereabout behold two Men stood by them in shining garments and as they were afraid and bowed down their faces to the earth they said unto them; Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here but is risen, remember how He spake unto you when He was yet in Galilee Saying; The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be Crucified and the third day rise again and they remembered His words (KJV)

Scripture is filled with God’s Truth that only He could have known when His words were recorded by Man, even today being in the End Times we see Prophesy being fulfilled that was written in the Scriptures Centuries ago which no Man could have known.

Those who claim Jesus was not Resurrected are spoken of in the Scriptures below, do we dismiss them as worthless, No we Pray for them, only God knows their Hearts and Eternal Destiny, they may come to Repentance on their deathbed or before through the good seeds that were planted in their lives……..

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the Preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness but unto us which are Saved it is the Power of God.

1 Corinthians 15:12 -29 Now if Christ be Preached that He rose from the dead how say some among you that there is no Resurrection of the dead? But if there be no Resurrection of the dead then is Christ not Risen and if Christ be not Risen, then is our preaching vain and your Faith is also vain. Yea and we are found false witnesses of God because we have testified of God that He Raised up Christ whom He Raised not up if so be that the dead rise not. For if the dead rise not then is not Christ Raised and if Christ be not Raised your Faith is vain ye are yet in your Sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all Men most miserable. But now is Christ Risen from the dead and become the Firstfruits of them that slept. For since by Man came death by Man came also the Resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every Man in his own order: Christ the Firstfruits afterward they that are Christ’s at His coming.

1Corinthians 2: 12-14 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.

Easter New Life

The First Easter after I started Blogging I found that the Story below really touched my Heart as I’m sure it will yours. Most of my Adult life I have been involved with Children in all different Ministries including Mentally Challenged, Handicapped and Abused Children, although it has given me much Joy to be part of their lives which I Thank God for,  I have also experienced Heartache but more so frustration as I’m sure those who have Ministered to hurting Children and those with problems will understand.

Below is the Story of a young Boy who knew the real meaning of Easter in his heart even though nobody thought he could…..

Jeremy was born with a twisted body and a slow mind. At the age of 12 he was still in second grade seemingly unable to learn. His Teacher Doris Miller often became exasperated with him. He would squirm in his seat, drool and make grunting noises.  At other times he spoke clearly and distinctly as if a spot of light had penetrated the darkness of his brain.

Most of the time  however Jeremy just irritated his teacher. As she pondered the situation guilt washed over her. Here I am complaining when my problems are nothing compared to his she thought. Lord please help me to be more patient with Jeremy. From that day on she tried hard to ignore Jeremy’s noises and his blank stares…… Continued on Link below……

The Empty Egg-  https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2012/04/02/the-empty-egg/

Much Christian  Love and Blessings, as we give Heartfelt Thanks for the great Sacrifice Jesus our Lord and Saviour made for us and also for our Abba Father who allowed Him because of His great Love for us – Anne.

Joy in The Sun

 

Some days just don’t go as planned and yesterday was one of those days, it was a Blah day,  it reminds me of the Poem below that I wrote and shared many years ago, it explains how to bring out the Sun, so I tried it again today and it worked.

.

  Joy In The Sun

Is this a Blah day, has everything gone wrong, you don’t even feel the joy in a song, the flowers don’t bloom, your heart is in gloom and there is emptiness in every room.

 No one seems to care that you’re in despair, they probably don’t even notice if you are there, what can you do, what can you say nothing seems to take your misery away.

Why not remember a day gone before when happiness and Joy were in great store, and all that you did brought Joy to your soul and you were happy well and whole.

 Maybe your memories recall an event when most of the time with others it was spent, together you rejoiced in all that you had, and in your heart you were very glad. 

 

What were the things that made it special for you, was it laughter and fun that brought out the Sun, or a kind word spoken to cheer you along, or maybe it was your Special song.

Spend some time and have some fun, join in re-creation with a loved one, then stop and remember someone else who may feel sad, reach out to them and you will both be glad.

 For sharing together heals the pain, and showing kindness stops the rain, no longer to have the clouds of fear and doubt the Sun will shine and block them out. 

Take time to pray in Jesus’ name and together you’ll have a Joy that can’t be restrained,

For He is the Sun that brightens everyday.

Remember Jesus is only a prayer away, and with us He will always stay, He is the Morning Star and will rise in our heart, for Jesus was there right from the start.

Cyclone Debbie brings Widespread Flooding

Just a short account of how Cyclone Debbie is affecting Brisbane and the Gold Coast and my own battle in the Storm yesterday Morning .

Parts of Brisbane have already received more than 200mm of rain. There is also already a lot of water in all the Creeks and River systems and any further heavy rain will continue to lead to flash flooding.

The Albert and Coomera rivers on the Gold Coast are already experiencing major flooding issues, with water breaking the banks of smaller creeks around Brisbane too.

The rain is still ongoing and the damaging winds are still expected along the coast, with gusts of in excess of 90km/h and potentially in excess of 125km/h in elevated terrain and in some of those coastal areas.

Queensland Health has confirmed that Elective Surgery and Outpatient Appointments at seven Queensland Hospitals have been cancelled, The State’s Health Authority said Emergency departments were operating as normal along with Inpatient Services.

All Schools were closed yesterday, including Catholic and Independent Schools, they will also be closed Today.

It’s chaos in Coles and Woolworths at Pacific Fair but it’s a different story everywhere else, with many retailers shutting up shops. Gold Coast residents have flooded major Shopping Centres this morning after Authorities advised everyone to stay indoors from Midday.

More than 5,000 homes are now without electricity in southeast Queensland. Energex workers have been working swiftly all day to reconnect homes, but this is set to become near impossible as destructive winds set in and darkness falls.

Evacuation Centres were opened in areas including Ipswich, Redlands, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay.

My Morning Battle…

Yesterday Morning at about 5am I woke up to hear heavy Rain outside the Bedroom window I was worried about my new Mobility Scooter as water in it’s Motor will cause it to crash, although it was under cover there was still danger of it being wet so I thought I would bring it inside like I had done with the old Scooter when it was Storming.

Because it was still dark and thinking it would not take very long I headed out into the Storm in my Summer Nightie but because of the heavy rain the Carport was leaking and before long I was also very wet and I realized the Scooter would be too if left much longer in the Carport.

I started the Scooter and drove it towards the front door trying to avoid a potted plant but found the Scooter would not fit through the doorway like the old one had and this is were I panicked it would also not back out of the doorway without banging into the wall, I was trapped and the more I tried the worse it got, this went on and on but it would not budge more than a few inches.

As I sat on the Mobility Scooter upset and frustrated and wondering what to do next, it was now about 6.30, I looked up and could see in the distance a Bird sitting all alone on the Electricity Cable in the Storm, I thought this was strange but it reminded me that God even looks after the Sparrows and He cares  even more for us. So once again I prayed for His help and this time after a few attempts I was able to find a way out of the narrow door way and I also found a cover for the Scooter that would temporarily help to keep it dry and than surprisingly as I went inside to have breakfast, I heard the sound of a bird singing, yes in the rain, you can be sure I am still giving Thanks.

Luke 12:7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore ye are of more value than many Sparrows.

Psalm 91:4- 5  He shall cover thee with His feathers and under His Wings shalt thou Trust, His Truth shall be thy Shield and Buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night nor for the arrow that flieth by day.

Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

Does God Willingly Allow Pain and Suffering?

Below is an explanation I received of why God allows Pain and Suffering but does He willingly?…

As a Man was having his hair cut and his beard trimmed in Barbershop they were talking about various subjects, when they eventually touched on the subject of God, the Barber said; ‘I don’t believe that God exists.’

‘Why do you say that?’ asked the Customer. ‘Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn’t exist. Tell me, if God exists would there be so many sick people? would there be Abandoned Children?

If God existed there would be neither Pain nor Suffering! I can’t imagine a Loving God who would allow all of these things.’ The Customer thought for a moment but didn’t respond because he didn’t want to start an argument. The Barber finished his job and the customer left the Shop.

Just after he left the Barbershop he saw a Man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair, he looked dirty and unkempt. The Customer turned back and entered the Barbershop again and he said to the Barber:

‘You know what? Barbers do not exist.’

‘How can you say that?’ asked the surprised Barber. ‘I am here, and I am a Barber and I just worked on you!’

‘No!’ the Customer exclaimed. ‘Barbers don’t exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair like that Man outside and some have untrimmed beards too.’

‘Ah but Barbers DO exist! That’s what happens when People do not come to me.’

‘Exactly!’ affirmed the Customer. ‘That’s the point! God, too, DOES exist! That’s what happens when People do not go to Him and don’t look to Him for Help. That’s why there’s so much Pain and Suffering in the World, so much Anger, yes so much Evil.’

I think it is good explanation but it still leaves questions unanswered. It always makes me ask; “Well why do people suffer who are seeking the Lord with all their hearts? or why are Christians hurting? and why do some Christians do wrong? or why do Children who God says are innocent until they are able to understand, why are they Abused, Abandoned and Suffer? because this can stay with them for the rest of their lives unless they are Healed, why does God not Stop Evil, He is God of the Impossible isn’t He?

Well you only have to read the Bible Trusting in Jesus our only Spiritual Teacher to know the answer.

 Satan controls this earth and all the evil that is propagated by Man and has done so since Mankind chose to Sin and he has the right to put us to the Test as He did Jesus, Abraham, Job, Peter, Paul etc.  The Scripture confirms to say that even Christians do evil to bring good out of it is Slander how much more so to say it about God.

1John 5: 19- 20 We know that we are of God and the whole World lies under the Sway of the Wicked One. And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is True and we are in Him who is True, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the True God and Eternal life.N.K.J.V

As we look at Paul’s life who was a very Godly man and who put God first, we see that He suffered greatly but look how he handled it and of course Jesus said in this world we will have trouble no matter how much you seek to do right, the only difference with Christians is Jesus is with us to carry us through the Storm. I feel it has to do a whole lot with our attitude too and how we look at trouble, just look at Paul’s attitude and how he looked at all the suffering and pain he went through and this was for doing good. He gave Thanks and to God and Rejoiced that He was with him through it all, he did not blame Him for afflicting  him or for willingly allowing or for planing the evil that afflicted him.

Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

Jeremiah 29 :11-12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of Peace and not of Evil, to give you a Future and a Hope.

We too will suffer when we follow Jesus as He did, we will be hated, slandered, abused and ignored even by some in our own Families and also in the Church, we may even be Martyred but  our reward will be great.

So as the Barber Message tells us we need to seek the Lord because without Him we experience all type of grief’s and problems that we can’t handle in a Godly way.

But God does not plan to bring suffering to us or willingly allows it but He will bring us through it ? ” We are to Love Him with all our Heart, Mind, Soul and yes with our All, we cannot Trust someone in our Heart whom we believe will deliberately hurt us or willingly allow it even if we claim it’s for our good and if we don’t Trust we cannot Love, we will have fleshy fear instead and not reverence which is what God tells us about unbelievers and Carnal or Baby Believers.

Yes sometimes we need to be disciplined and this hurts but God let’s us reap the evil we sow to bring us to Heart Repentance just as He did with the Prodigal Son but He Molds and Shapes us by the Fruit of The Spirit and so we will be  strengthened by what we go through so we can endure, which is confirmed in the Scriptures, Isaiah 43:1-3  He knew us before we were Conceived and it was not His will we are hurt, it grieves Him greatly but He Protects our Soul, He does not crush our spirit.

Psalm 97:9-11 For thou, Lord, art high above all the earth: thou art exalted far above all gods. Ye that Love the Lord, hate evil, He preserveth the souls of His Saints, He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the Righteous and gladness for the Upright in Heart.

It is not only for this life we live which is like a Split Second in Eternity, God is preparing us for His Kingdom where we will know Complete Joy Eternally because there is no Death, Suffering or Pain of any kind there.

        

Why does God not stop evil? well we may never know how much He does intervene to help us but sometimes He does so Miraculously, we also have Doctors and Nurses, Medicine and Natural remedies these are all God’s Tools and He sends Carers and Support for Children and People in need.

 

 

 

.

.But if He did stop all evil then that would be the end of the World as it was in Noah’s time and some would be lost Eternally.

It is not God’s will anyone Perishes meaning to be Eternally separated from Him in Torment but He is giving those whom He knows as His own, time to come to Heart repentance and not one of us will be lost.

Although there is evil in all of us until we are Perfected, there is The Holy Spirit’s influence in our lives too and even with Non Christians because God knows His Redeemed Children from the beginning of time He knows all things and that we will repent and accept His free gift of Salvation in Christ Jesus and so by this foreknowledge He predestines us to be conformed into the image of Jesus as we work out our Salvation but not meaning work for it.

Repentance is not a one off thing as The Lord’s Prayer shows. We need to come to Heart repentance daily accepting the forgiveness we have in Jesus Christ and turning away from evil and doing good and we can because Jesus has set us free and no Temptation will be greater than we can bear.

We are all on a journey with The Lord yes even His Lost Sheep whom He goes after and brings back to the Fold and until we are Perfected in Love we can still choose to do things in the Carnal flesh and cause harm both to others and to ourselves until our flesh has been put to death and we are Born Again and Perfected in Love which we are all to Aim for. Jesus is our Advocate and only Intercessor, when we Repent we are forgiven.

Because of God’s great Love for us He is patient not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to Heart repentance. But He did not make us Puppets,  we are able to choose right from wrong and as the Carnal flesh is put to death by the Holy Spirit as we choose to walk in Righteousness (Romans 8 :12-15- Romans 6 -Colossians 3:4-6 -Galatians 5:24 -26) as we Aim to be Perfected in Love  (Matthew 5:48 – Hebrews 6:1-Philippians 3:14-16 -2Timothy 3:17-1John 4:16-19- 1John 2:4-6- 2Corinthians 13:11) we become more and more Holy and we than walk as Jesus did on earth and we have His Mind and He does not choose to Sin .

When we do a lot that is evil, it can be because we are hurting greatly and although this does not make it right our God is a Compassionate and Loving and He will forgive us if we Repent which means being really sorry and not continuing to do evil but to do good which we can only do with His Strength as we seek Jesus to lead us.

Sadly there are people who are just evil and never come to Heart Repentance but we are not to judge others Eternal Destiny because only God knows their Heart but because we care we are to warn others if what they are doing is hurting themselves or other people. They might not listen or they may even reject us but we can accept whatever their response is without holding on to anger and hurt by asking God to help us deal with these feelings.

If someone needs to Chastise and warn us we appreciate their concern and ask God to show us if there is Truth in what they say and we will know if we are in the wrong because we will try to justify or cover up and we will have no Peace. This means we need to come to Repentance make amends when necessary and then turn from evil and do good .

By warning people we may give them doubts about what they are doing or believing and cause them to question why and maybe they will seek help from the Lord to have the Victory over whatever they are doing wrong or believing in error and if they will not listen even when others have warned them too then we can only leave it in the Lords hands and continue to Pray for them. This does not mean we judge them by our standards understanding or feelings but only by God’s Truth and we do so because we care and we do it with Love.

So why does God not stop all the evil in the World? He will one day but for now He remembers His Promise and that Jesus is our Ark so we need to hold onto His Promise in……

Romans 8:28 We know that all things works together for good to them that Love God, to them that are called according to His Purpose K.J.V

I will be in Touch, Christian Love Always – Anne.

Asking for God’s Wisdom

Jesus told us to Ask, Seek and Knock ( Matthew 7:7-8 & Luke 11:9-10) we do not just wait passively for things to happen and ignore or dismiss what is important for our Spiritual Maturity and one of the most impotent things we are to ask for is God’s Wisdom and His empowering by The Holy Spirit, none of us were Born with them, yes we all lack them but it takes a humble spirit to acknowledge our need of them and sadly many profess to be wise because of their worldly learning and so they Trust in their own understanding and others Trust in what they teach and so are deceived.

1 Corinthians 3:18-20 Let no man deceive himself, if any man among you seemeth to be wise in this World let him become a fool that he may be Wise. For the wisdom of this World is foolishness with God. For it is written; He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again; The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise that they are vain.

Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes fear the Lord and depart from evil.

The importance of asking for God’s Wisdom which is the Principle thing in getting His understanding with His empowering by The Holy Spirit, is we can than understand His Truth and having received we are than not deceived by False Teachers, Cults and error in Translations but we are not to doubt we have received them and keep asking, to do so means we are unstable and can be deceived, we Thank God instead and Trust Jesus our only Spiritual Teacher to lead us into all understanding.

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)… perhaps our Computers today?

If you love the Scriptures like I do and value their importance in our Lives with them all being inspired by God and also love to share them, there are many more Scriptures on the Link and below, which also gives us God’s Truth in asking for His Wisdom and Empowering.

James 1:5-6 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.

Luke 11:13 If ye then being evil know how to give good gifts unto your Children how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?

Colossians 2 :2 -3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in Love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you and ye need not that any man teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things and is Truth and is no lie, and even as it hath Taught you, ye shall abide in Him.

The Scripture below is very important in understanding the Empowering of The Holy Spirit.

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.

I’m sure you will know some of the Quotes, there are also personal ones to me from my Friends and some I have written to them. I have used Sunsets and Sunrises as Backgrounds on most of them because a few of my Friends, Debbie and Stevie have said they really love them, I’m hoping to Create a Power Point for them too .

I have also received many uplifting Comments and Responses from Blogging Friends who are my Brothers and Sisters in The Lord, some I have shared before on my Blog and I will do so again in the future.

Those that I use to Blog with who don’t Blog anymore are still in my Heart and also what we shared together, this is the same as my other Friends that have moved on or have gone to be with The Lord who is our Greatest Friend.

Thank you to all of my Friends and my Blogging Friends I have been blessed by over the years and my New ones too, I appreciate and value you very much for Leaving your Footprints of Love, Encouragement and Kindness in my Heart.

The Prayer Room Power

The Power of Prayer changes Fear to Strength, Hate to Love, Bitterness to Forgiveness, Needs to Thankfulness, Sickness to Health, Lost to Found.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.(KJV)

Pray without ceasing, Wow does that mean we don’t stop to eat or sleep or do anything else? No we do what is natural for us to live but we are to always be centered on the Hope we have in Christ Jesus, our Hearts are our cupboard of Prayer and God hears and answers and even gives us our Heart desires, which will be according to His will when The Holy Spirit prays in and through us.

Romans 8:26-28 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should Pray for as we ought but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And He that searcheth the Hearts knoweth what is the Mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the Saints according to the Will of God.

Jude 1: 20 But ye, beloved building up yourselves on your most Holy Faith, Praying in the Holy Ghost.

The Poison Darts

dart-board

Holding onto bitterness and resentment and seeking revenge is like mixing poison for those who have hurt us but drinking it ourselves, just like Cancer it eats away all the goodness in us.

p2

The Story below shows the other Soul destroying result of holding onto these negative emotions instead of forgiving, does this mean we have to accept the wrong said and done as OK ? No! but we don’t pollute ourselves or seek revenge, we ask Jesus to help us forgive and if given the opportunity we show we have, remembering hurt People hurt People and need our Compassion and we than move on in Love.

The Target…….

One  particular day, Sally walked into the College and knew they were in for a fun day.

On the wall was a big Target and on a nearby table were many darts Dr Smith told the students to draw a picture of someone that they disliked or someone who had made them angry, and he would allow them to throw darts at the person’s picture.

Sally’s friend drew a picture of someone who had stolen her boyfriend. Another friend drew a picture of a woman from another Country who she didn’t think measured up and one of his little brother. Someone else had a picture of a person who had upset them on their Blog. Sally drew a picture of a former friend, putting a great deal of detail into her drawing, even drawing pimples on the face. Sally was pleased with the overall effect she had achieved.

The class lined up and began throwing darts. Some of the students threw their darts with such force that their targets were ripping apart. Sally looked forward to her turn, and was filled with disappointment when Dr. Smith, because of time limits, asked the students to return to their seats. As Sally sat thinking about how angry she was because she didn’t have a chance to throw any darts at her target. Dr. Smith began removing the target from the wall.

Underneath the target was a picture of Jesus.  A hush fell over the room as each student viewed the mangled picture of Jesus; holes and jagged marks covered His face and His eyes were pierced.

 Dr. Smith said only these words… “In as much as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto Me.” Matthew 25:40 

No other words from them were necessary; the tears filled eyes of the Students focused only on the picture of Christ. Author unknown.

Matthew 5:43-45  Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy Neighbour and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you Love your enemies bless them that curse you do good to them that hate you and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you; That ye may be the Children of your Father which is in Heaven for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Love and hate can not co-exist,  they are not in Unity we  can’t have Love in our heart while ever we hate someone and without Love the Holy Spirit can’t fill us with the rest of His good fruit. Galatians 5: 22-25.

Christian Love and Blessings to you – Anne.

More Answered Prayer

Praying

I had some more good news during the week, I had a consultation at Redcliffe Hospital for my shoulder that I had damaged when my Mobility Scooter overturned on top of me (see link below) they are not going to Operate now, my shoulder has improved greatly and the pain is significantly less, I have excises to do to strengthen both my shoulder and arm and they now feel this will be sufficient.

Accident-   https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2016/09/13/im-needing-your-prayer-support-again/

Thank you for all those who Prayed for me, your Faithfulness is such a blessing.  I have been in intense pain on and off for months and with being left handed it made it worse, it meant mostly what I did with my left hand and arm caused pain but now there it is much less pain and sometimes none at all and I no longer wake up in pain at night.

I used God’s Balm (see link below)  which helped greatly but at times the pain became acute again especially when lifting or cleaning or when I was unable to use God’s Balm because I was not at home, I was concerned that an Operation would be necessary so I’m so grateful it will not be needed now.

God’s Balm-  https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2013/03/11/a-special-gift-for-you/

As we  take the time to Thank our Abba Father for His Love and Mercy which is never ending, let’s remember those we know who are still suffering and pray in Faith for their Healing too.

Are you in Pain, do you need prayer ? please let me know and we will Pray for you too.

Thank you again for your Prayer Support – Christian Love and Many Blessings Now and Always – Anne.

The Dangers of Yoga

yoga-1

Although I was delving into the Occult before I became a Christian I have not personally been involved in Yoga but I have seen the demonic results of those who have been and also Christian Testimonies damaged by what seemed harmless and beneficial exercises but are in Truth dangerous Pagan rituals to their gods leaving the Soul polluted. We do not have to be involved with evil to recognize evil.

But let’s remember Satan is defeated in a Christian’s Life, God protects our Soul, if we have been involved in dangerous practices  we Pray as King David did (see below)  with assurance God will set us free and purify us, conforming us into the image of Jesus.

Below is a link to  Beth Eckert’s Blog and part of her warning against Yoga and the Occult.  Beth is a courageous woman who was also involved in the Occult before becoming a Christian, she now contends with God warning others of the dangers of Yoga and other Occult practices. Beth’s warning comes from Love offering protection to those who blindly seek harmony through Yoga knowing they will only find disillusionment and Bondage.

Beth’s Warning.……

Practices such as Yoga, meditation, channeling energy, tai chi, kung fu, karate, acupuncture, mantras, mandalas, reiki and feng shui are all based on these spiritual teachings or principles that incorporate the gods and goddesses or the channeling of energy. All gods and goddesses are false gods aka demons. There is only one God, and He is the One who created the heavens and the earth. Any other “god” is like Satan; looking to become like god in order to gain power and control over humanity.

As I grew in my relationship with Jesus Christ I understood that Yoga was a spiritual practice to invite demons in. What I did not realize was that I was taught to use Yoga to channel demons into my being during satanic rituals as a child.

During one of my sessions that I have weekly, the Holy Spirit revealed to me how Yoga was used in satanic rituals. Each specific Yoga pose has a purpose in opening you up to the alignment of your spirit and soul with different deities. It is channeling the kundalini spirit through your spine, said to be the lifeline of your body……..continued on Beth Eckert’s Blog link below.

Yogahttp://www.theothersideofdarkness.com/

Psalm 94:16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?(KJV)

We remember when we do stand up against Satan’s evil practices, we will often be abused or contradicted by those he has blinded and are in darkness.

Thank you for taking the time to read about the dangers of Yoga,  Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

A Wonderful Answer To Prayer

 

Thank you to all my Blogging friends who Prayed for me, let’s Praise God for His wonderful answer to your heart felt Prayers. Thankfully I do not have Bowel Cancer and the Bleeding has stopped too, there will be further checks but there had been no recent bleeding, I’m home now and feeling much stronger and Thanking God for His Love, Compassion and Healing.

Just before I was picked up to go to Hospital a close friend who looked after me when I came home after the Procedures, had been Praying and shared that God was with me and to Trust Him even if I was worried.

smiley-1We often share the Smiley face on Cards and with gifts even on a Birthday gift funny tea-shirt, it reminds us we have a lot to be Thankful for even in the hard times and we can rejoice that we are God’s Children and He Loves us and is with us.

When I was waiting to go into Surgery and feeling a bit apprehensive I looked at a Notice board in the Preparation room and it had lots of Smiley faces on it, Wow just what I needed!

I’m still amazed perhaps lacking faith I thought because of Dad dying of Bowel Cancer I would too, yes I was ready to go and had Peace but another friend Prayed for me and said God has work for you to do you will recover and amazing I have.

Recently I was thinking about how God has Healed me over the years and shared about this with a Cult Member that I sometimes talk to or her friends as they witness for J.W,  she claimed that God does not Heal or do Miracles today but that Satan can Heal when he wants to deceive but the Scriptures confirm both of these assumptions are in error.

God is the same Yesterday, Today and will be Tomorrow, He does not change like shifting shadows and He is the only Healer regardless of the Tools He uses, such as Medicine, Doctors, Science, Natural remedies or He may Heal Miraculously, God can only do good and yes to be Healed is very good, Satan only does evil, even if sugar coated.

Job 5:9 – “He performs Wonders that cannot be fathomed, Miracles that cannot be counted.”

Psalm 145:4-6 One Generation shall Praise Thy works to another and shall declare thy Mighty Acts. I will speak of the glorious Honour of Thy Majesty and of Thy Wondrous Works.

John 10:10 – The Thief comes only to Steal and Kill and Destroy, I have come that they may have Life and have it to the full.

Isaiah 5:20-21 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil that put darkness for Light and Light for darkness that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes and prudent in their own sight!

Do I hate Cult Members, I have never hated anyone in my life regardless of what they have done to me but just as God hates the evil that is spoken or done, I do too including the evil I have said and done that hurt my Abba Father.

I believe most Cult Members are seeking to serve God and Love who they think Jesus is but they are being taught error and this is because instead of asking for God’s Wisdom and empowering and believing they have received them and than Trusting Jesus to lead them into all Truth, they are Trusting in Carnal Man. Let’s Pray for them to come out of darkness, that their eyes will be open and they will see The Light.

Thank you again for your faithfulness to Pray for me, Christian Love – Anne.

thanks

Update – Prayer Needed

Thank you my Blogging friends for your Prayer Support, I very much appreciate your faithfulness. Today I go into Hospital for the two Procedures that hopefully will find out why I’m internally bleeding, the preparation for these was very intensive and I’m feeling very weak.

I apologize to those who have visited and commented or if you have recently started following Freedomborn, I will respond to you all when I’m feeling stronger.

Thank you again – Christian Love in our Unity in Christ Jesus – Anne.

Our New M & M

micky-5This Month has been a month of surprises some of which I will also share about on my next Post but one that I give heartfelt Thanks for is the joy of Micky Moo my new M &M furry friend.

I was shopping and noticed a home wanted advertisement for a 4 year old little Chihuahua cross dog, I phoned the owners and they brought Micky Moo around to see me, Wow he was cute, we became friends right away, he looked very much like a Chihuahua as his hair was shaved, see below, it’s growing back now as you can see in the Photo above,  he is crossed with a Foxy and he is very active.

The couple who owned Micky Moo were elderly and found that they could not give him the attention he needed. Micky Moo had been very cruelly treated as a puppy and was in a Animal Refuge and than a few Foster homes, yes he has emotional problems that will take time and Love to overcome but we are friends now and that makes a big difference.

mo-joe-and-micky-1

Mo-Joe has accepted Micky Moo, although they don’t play together yet they are not aggressive towards each other and even sit together sometimes. They do have things in common, they love food, balls, walks and yes hugs and kissels too.

Below is a message I received by e-mail about the joy of having doggy friends, I’m sure you will enjoy it as much as I did and will recognize how True it is if you also have furry friends.

.

IF I DIDN’T HAVE DOGS

dog-toys-8My house would not look like a Day Care Center, toys everywhere…

All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars

would be free of hair.

I could sit on the lounge and my bed the way I wanted, without taking
into consideration how much space several furry bodies
would need to get comfortable…

baby-gateMy house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates or barriers
and it could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated…

vetI would not be on a first-name basis with 5 Veterinarians, I really feel like
one of their family, I visit so often.

I could walk around the yard barefoot and in safety. I’d look forward to spring and the rainy season instead of dreading ‘mud’ season.

doors153When the doorbell rang, it wouldn’t sound like a Kennel and I could get to the door without wading through fuzzy bodies who beat me there…

The most used words in my vocabulary would not be…

Out, Sit, Down, Come, No, Stay, and Leave him/her/it Alone!

monty-8I could have a Shower without an Audience…

My pockets would not contain things like poop bags, water bottles treats
and an extra leash.

765I would have money… and no guilt trips about going on a real Vacation and
coming back when I was in the mood…

monty-9Wash day would not include little furry bodies…

I would no longer have to spell the words…

B-A-L-L, F-R-I-S-B-E- E, W-A-L-K,

B-A-T-H, T-R-E-A-T, C-A-R, B-I-K-E, G-O,

R-I-D-E, C-A-T.

mony7I would not have as many leaves Inside my house as outside.

I would not look strangely at people who think having a dog or cat
ties them down too much…

I would not have to answer the question ‘Why do you have animals?’
from people who have never enjoyed the closeness of animals,
or been blessed by their loyalty, trust and appreciation…

I would be missing out on a lot of Happiness if I could not share my life
with my four Legged Friends, I give thanks for them,
they are a real blessing.

I hope you enjoyed “If I didn’t have dogs” I can sure relate to it’s message but than I do have dogs my M&M’s, which I Thank my Abba Father for.

If We Love God We Will Keep His Commandments

Thank you StopAndPrayTV for sharing this Powerful Message based on God’s Truth and giving a firm foundation on what it means to Love God.

Mark 12:30-31 And thou shalt Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul and with all thy mind and with all thy strength, this is the first Commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt Love thy Neighbour as thyself. There is none other Commandment greater than these.(KJV)

10 Commandments

In a January, 2015 interview in GQ magazine, basketball superstar Kevin Durant talked about his personal spiritual transformation after learning about God’s love from Pastor Carl Lentz.

He explained that he once lived with the fear that, “If I do something wrong, I’m going to hell. I felt like I had to follow the Ten Commandments.”

“But,” he continues, “we don’t live by that no more. We live by the blood of Jesus. That’s how I feel.”

Now, I sincerely hope that what he meant was this: “I used to live in constant fear of an angry, vengeful God who was watching my every move, out to get me if I broke a single commandment a single time, with the penalty of hell hanging over me all the time. Now, I realize that Jesus died for my sins and gave me a new heart, so I serve God out of…

Who do we Listen to God or Man

 

light-7

God’s Truth comes first not a Man or Woman’s fleshy understanding no matter how good they relate what they think or how convincing they sound or who they are, if what they claim disagrees with God’s Truth as confirmed by The Holy Spirit and the Scriptures we reject it.

But how can we have assurance of what is right or wrong, God tells us How as we see confirmed in the Scriptures below and He does not lie, His words are not hard to understand, they are to the point and very clear in what He tells us and once we have read them with His understanding they will remain in our Hearts forever,  so we take the time to read His Words of Truth to us instead of staying in darkness and being deceived. 

Jesus also said for us to Ask, Seek and Knock and the Scripture below shows us what is some of the most important things to ask for and why they are.

Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the Principal thing therefore get Wisdom and with all thy getting get Understanding.

James 1:5-6 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 2:5-7 For the LORD giveth Wisdom out of His mouth cometh Knowledge and Understanding.

Luke 11:13 If ye then being evil know how to give good gifts unto your Children how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him.

Ephesians 1:17-18 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ The Father of glory may give unto you the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the Knowledge of Him, the eyes of your Understanding being Enlightened that ye may know what is the Hope of His calling, and what the Riches of the glory of His inheritance in the Saints.

The Apostle Paul  shares again about these two types of Wisdom, God and Mans as we see confirmed below.

1 Corinthians 2:1-8 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the Testimony of God. For I determined not to know any thing among you save Jesus Christ and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling. And my Speech and my Preaching was not with enticing words of Man’s wisdom but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of Men but in the power of God. Howbeit we speak Wisdom among them that are Perfect yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the Wisdom of God in a mystery even the hidden Wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew for had they known it they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.(KJV)

.

wisdomNot one of us were Born with God’s Wisdom or Empowering of The Holy Spirit and so we all lack them and need to ask for them so we will have understanding but having received them we are not to doubt that God has given them to us or let others cause us to doubt, yes we will know His Truth, Jesus will lead us into all understanding, He is our only Teacher although others can share God’s Truth with us we still Trust in Jesus and the Scriptures to confirm what is shared.

Matthew 23:8-10 But you do not be called ‘Rabbi’ for One is your Teacher, The Christ, and you are all brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your Father for One is your Father, He who is in Heaven. And do not be called Teachers for One is your Teacher The Christ.

Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and Teach you in the way you shall go, I will guide you with Mine eye.

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)

1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you and ye need not that any Man Teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things and is Truth and is no lie and even as it hath Taught you ye shall abide in Him.

The Holy Spirit with us having asked for God’s Wisdom and His Empowering will lead us into all Truth as He receives it from The Lord.

John 16:13 -15. Howbeit when He The Spirit of Truth is come He will guide you into all Truth for He shall not speak of Himself but whatsoever He shall hear that shall He speak and He will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me for He shall receive of Mine and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are Mine therefore said I that He shall take of Mine and shall shew it unto you.

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.

1John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come and hath given us an Understanding that we may know Him that is True and we are in Him that is True even in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the True God and eternal life.

Colossians 2 :2 -3 That their hearts might be Comforted being knit together in Love and unto all riches of the full Assurance of Understanding to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father and of Christ in whom are hid all the Treasures of Wisdom and Knowledge.
