This is my prayer for our country and the people around the world.
Creator of the heavens, the earth, and the rain. Please forgive this nation and shower down your rain quickly to stop the fires and prevent more from starting. Especially the western states. Rise up your prayer warriors to seek your righteousness through Jesus Crist.
✞Acts 14:17 (NIV) Yet he has not left himself without testimony:(A) He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons;(B) he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy….

🎤This isn’t an easy topic to discuss, but because of Jesus, we have a choice to be forgiven and redeemed. God loves you and there is no such thing as a perfect person. You can not earn your way to heaven. It is a choice you make to ever believe or not believe. Once you accept Jesus it cannot be taken away unless you decide you do not believe anymore or if you denounce Jesus. According to the Bible. God knows your heart and it is your personal walk… Ask – Seek – Knock…
✞ Ephesians 1: 7 (New International Version)
In him, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace
✞ Galatians 3:13 – 14 (King James Version)

✞ Proverbs 15:24 (New King James Version )

✞ 2 Peter 3: 8-9 New Life Version (NLV)
Dear friends, remember this one thing, with the Lord one day is as 1,000 years, and 1,000 years are as one day. The Lord is not slow about keeping His promise as some people think. He is waiting for you. The Lord does not want any person to be punished forever. He wants all people to be sorry for their sins and turn from them.
✞ John 3:18 (English Standard Version)
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
✞ Colossians 1:12-14 (New International Version)
and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
✞ Romans 10: 9 -10 (New International Version)
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved
✞ John 1:12-13 (New International Version) Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
✞ Revelation 3: 20 (Living Bible)

✞Isaiah 43:1-3 (New Life Version)
But now the Lord Who made you, O Jacob, and He Who made you, O Israel, says, “Do not be afraid. For I have bought you and made you free. I have called you by name. You are Mine! When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. When you pass through the rivers, they will not flow over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned. The fire will not destroy you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, Who saves you.
🧩As God Promised Jacob then, He promises it for you now, as well now. The rainbow is Gods Proof that he is for us not against us. That was before Jesus came to think about how much more we have now with Jesus.
🥁 You are Loved and you are blessed and you are redeemed if you wish to be.
✞ Isaiah 40:1-2 (New Life Version)
“Comfort, yes, comfort My people!” Says your God. “Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her, That her warfare is ended, That her iniquity is pardoned;
For she has received from the Lord’s hand Double for all her sins.”
How many people do you know who believe in God? A lot? I do, Most people I know believe in God. But – How many do you know that believe in Jesus. Are you brave enough to ask them? It took me a while when I was a teen to get up the nerve, because I was afraid to damage the friendship or be looked at oddly. When I was a child, I had no trouble talking about Jesus, because I did not care what others thought of me. When I was seventeen, I went through many situations and ordeals from age twelve till now! They have changed my life for the better! And it opened my eyes to how Amazing God and Jesus really are. Not every one has had such serious ordeals and some go the opposite way when they happen. They get mad at God and run away form him instead of remembering it is “He” who has delivered you out of the situation. I pray no one has to go through such rough situations, but sadly they happen.
Jeremiah 31: 3 I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.
With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.
Hebrews 13:5 (b) “I will never fail you.
I will never abandon you.”
And some never open their hearts at all to God, unable to grasp his wonderful peace and overflowing Love because they choose not to believe in Jesus.
Romans 10: 9-13 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced.” Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
John 14: 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Once we accept Jesus, the word of God, and all that is of God is so much easier to understand. It is like we are blinded till we take that test of faith. Unless you have opened your heart and done so you will have trouble understanding what I am saying. There is not other way to heaven, Jesus is the only way. It is hard to say because I don’t want anyone to go to Hell but there is nothing I can say to change that. God gave us free will and provided the way for us to get to heaven and be forgiven of ALL sin.
Replace the word “world” with your name, John 3:16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.because you are his child and then re-read it again. For God so loved YOU! Hits you doesn’t it. I know it hits me hard. We all face trials. I faced one of my won today.
I had a very intense day. God is a good God and I am very blessed. I am on a blood thiner, due to my heart condition, I have been on it since I was seventeen years old. Well sometimes my blood is to thin and sometimes to thick. Today it was too thin and it gave me a scare, I was coughing up blood when I woke up. So I went to the ER and they did not find anything that would have caused it, Thank God! They assume it was a bloody nose. Sometimes I forget how good God is in times of fear. Today was a good reminder he is a good Father and he takes care of his children..
John 17:1-4 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
It is now up to you to make that decision. Will you, have you accepted Jesus into your heart? If you have done so, and accepted Christ into your heart. It is now your job to spread God’s love and Jesus with others. NOW is the time the world, to know! God’s children need to hear they are loved. Sure we will be judged for doing so. But I care more about what God thinks of me in the end then what others do. And I want to save as many people form hell as I can.
If you have a friend that is not a believer and no matter what you say effects them, just pray for them to have God open their heart and know you at least planted the seed. It is now between them and God. Just be a good example and be there if they have a question. Do not debate God, just state facts and leave them. Debating solves nothing. It is only used to show two sides of an opinion. Arguing never solves anything Love always wins.
Read the book of John in the Bible and Romans I highly suggest it. http://www.bible.com Is where you can read it online if you do not have or know where your Bible is.
