I’m Not “Piqued” Over This Theme!

I enjoy browsing around trying on themes. It’s like a change of clothes. This particular theme, called “Pique,” is by far the most outstanding and powerful. I really like how the featured image becomes the post background. Sadly, all my widgets are now in the footer, so you have to scroll all the way down for them. But I can live with that.

I really hope you enjoy all my hard work. I’m doing this for the Lord first and foremost, but I’d like you, the reader, to be pleased with it as well.

God’s Power is Greater Than the Devil: Post from Blogger April 14, 2017

Above: The symbol for lightning and the Devil, also seen in many rock and roll groups. It also represents electrical power lines and danger zones.

Up again in the early hours of the morning. Sometimes my body just doesn’t want to sleep, so I get out of bed and try to do something to redeem the time and post here.

I find as I grow older that there’s no sense in worrying over trivial stuff. I am a child of God. I’m saved and going to Heaven when I die. I’m no better than anyone else, but I know things now that I hadn’t a clue about even a year ago, let alone than when I was saved at age 14.

For example, you ripen as you age, much like fruit. A green banana has no flavor and is hard and stiff, but let it sit and it will turn yellow and grow soft and sweet on the inside. It also possesses more nutrients and is a good source of quick energy as it ripens. Even bananas get “age spots”– but the more there are, the better and sweeter the fruit inside will taste. (By the way, God doesn’t make mistakes, and God made the banana tree, so those of you who look at the lowly banana with disdain may as well try one and see how good they are. It’s not like you’re eating a candy bar, you fool.)

As the days grow later I have a stronger sense of these end times and I must be about the Lord’s business. Even though few hear, I need to “sound out” the Gospel as often and as loudly as I can. My stats on my videos have plummeted, and it can be discouraging, but I know that Satan hates what I am doing here and he often drives people away to some other new thing or fad instead of allowing them to receive the Gospel and be saved. However, my God blesses my efforts and He will reward me in the life to come when I see Him face to face.

I am not about the numbers or the view count; I must do the work that God has given me to do, no matter what the response may be. Some days I get a flood of lost folks who, like a pack of hungry wolves, attack my message and try to tear down my ministry here. That’s what happened at my WordPress blog. I gave up on it, because Satan got the better of me. I regret that to this day, but I must give it to God and allow Him to use me here as well. Starting over is better than giving up on the sidelines.

This is a battle that we’re in. God is so powerful that He can use and manipulate even the enemy of our souls, who is the Devil. The Devil is the second highest power in the universe, the first of course being God Almighty.

Sometimes God uses the Devil like a powerful electric taser, because Satan is in electricity, which is the reason there are so many technologies involving circuits, wires, signals through the air, so-called “cloud” storage, etc., and Satan is behind all the negative side of the internet: spam emails, bogus sites, porn sites, chat rooms, YouTube, Facebook, etc.. Don’t you realize that you are allowing the Devil himself into your living room the moment your finger presses the remote control? He is THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR (Ephesians 2:2), which means he manipulates electrical activity and communications.

Other times God uses him as a more lethal weapon to control the weather, natural disasters, floods, etc. (by the way there is no such thing as “global warming”, that is a hoax contrived by the evil principalities in our government to get us acclimated to the New World Order and the arrival of the Antichrist). The Lord Jesus Christ said the Devil is the prince of the power of the air, and as such he also controls the weather under God’s commands. Satan is the god of this world, but Almighty God is King of the universe. It’s hard to think of that, but God is the One above all principalities and powers and He will have the final word in all matters.

Just speaking of my God, Who is my Heavenly Father because I believed on His only begotten Son, stirs my heart and makes me want to praise Him for all His wonderful works. God doesn’t make mistakes, nor does He fail in any one of His promises, one of which is that without Christ, lost people who die in their sins WILL go to Hell where the Devil will go in his appointed time.

Do you want to spend eternity with Satan, who hates you, despises your life, and wants nothing more than to drag your eternal soul to Hell with him? Or do you want to spend eternity with the Lord Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, and be with Him in Heaven forever? The choice is yours alone to make.

  • Admit that you are a sinner in danger of everlasting Hell fire.
  • Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ Who bled and died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and was raised again the third day.
  • Receive God’s forgiveness and eternal life from the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • It’s that simple. See this page for more info: HOW TO GO TO HEAVEN

Emotion, or devotion?

I wasn’t planning on writing again so soon but it seems that the Lord would have me put something down, since I’m here.

I have this habit of getting overly emotional. A lot of times I’ll post a bunch of things that later on I realize are relatively unimportant as a whole, and I’ll pull them. Not sure why, maybe I simply want to get noticed or something selfish like that.

However, God’s ways are not our ways. I really hope and pray that my posts are edifying to you, the reader. What good does it do to spend hours upon hours typing away over something that is trivial and powerless to speak to hearts (e.g., news articles, which are deliberate lies)? Let me remind you, dear reader, that this is supposed to be God’s building, not mine. So if I see it heading towards me, myself and I, it needs to be trashed, because I MUST serve the LORD in writing, as He wants and I have been (I hope) over the years.

Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. Psalm 127:1

God forgive me if this blog is anything but pleasing to Him. My steadfast prayer is that someone out there would see my efforts and be born again by faith in the Lord Jesus. I cannot know it now, but I will when I’m in Heaven. Until then, I strive, and press towards the mark for the prize of the high calling which is in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14).

God bless.

Public? Or Private?

Well, here I am again, up at 2:30 am, trying to write. I was thinking about making my blog private, since nobody seems to want to see it, but at the same time, I don’t bother to read other people’s blogs either. I just don’t. I have an aversion to when people boast about themselves, or have worldly mindsets. That’s one reason why I deleted the old blogs. I detest others’ pridefulness. (Note that I didn’t say the PEOPLE, I said the PRIDE.)

Still, what is it that makes me write anyway? Why should I continue to bare my soul on here, while 99.9% of others flock to the Devil’s whims? Why should I waste my time and not see any activity for months on end? I’ll tell you why. Because there might just be one person out there that needs me, not for myself, but for the reason God placed me here.

It makes me think of how many missionaries spread the Gospel in other lands. yet don’t receive any converts. I am still oftentimes ignorant that God’s timing is not mine, and it is never a waste of time to serve Him, as long as I am faithful. It’s a terrible old habit of mine to expect immediate, numerous results. But even if that was to be, would I handle that well? Would I get to be one of those detestable prideful ones that I mentioned earlier? Who am I to expect any results at all if God is not in my writings? These are questions the Holy Spirit demands of me. I cannot stand before Him and say I did well, when I did wrongly.

In a nutshell, if God gave me this talent of writing, and He expects me to use it, and not listen to the lying Devil when he comes a’callin, and I simply OBEY the Lord and do what I’m supposed to do, then that’s all that matters. I have to remember that each time I post here, it has the potential to reach all over the world. So what if there’s no or barely any activity, at first? God can make the difference. If I can just light a spark, it can create a raging fire in someone’s heart. And if not, then at least I did my job.

Bear with me as I grow in grace. I have not arrived yet.

And neither have you.

Up at 3am again

I often awaken at about 3am and can’t go back to sleep for at least an hour. So I come on here, attempting to jog my brain enough to post a testimony of some kind so I can assure myself that I redeemed the time in some way. I know that most won’t bother to read these, but you never know who God will use, and for what purpose. So I attempt, wholeheartedly, to reach out to someone who needs the Lord.

I have grown older and am beginning to experience older person battles; physical, emotional and yes, spiritual as well. I have this carpal tunnel in my right hand that makes it feel itchy while I type. I don’t nearly write as much as I used to. I used to get up in the wee hours, slip downstairs and hop on the computer, and, with keys clacking mightily, I would pour out my soul to God, praying someone out there would respond.

Then a long dearth of not writing followed. I’m not sure why, I guess I just grew discouraged and fell out of the writing habit. I had also, regrettably, erased much of my hard work from years back. Sadly, I had yielded to my emotions, and didn’t stand up to those who persecuted me. So now I have nothing left but to pick up the pieces and begin again on a new writing journey. It may have been a victory for the Devil at the time, but God won’t allow me to just give up. Hence, I start over with a new determination to please the Lord in writing.

Proverbs 24:16 KJB For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

I am thankful that the Lord is a God of umpteen chances. I am also thankful that He gently pushes me to keep going in this regard, because I have not wanted to go back to my old ways of writing and testifying of His grace and strength in my life. I am an unknown, a nobody, one who will most likely never reach status or fame, but in God’s eyes I am on the winning side, and I am His child, blood-bought and with a Kingly heritage. Rewards await in Heaven for those who wholeheartedly serve Him. I can’t ask for anything more.

Let the heathen rage and shake their fists in defiance against God Almighty. They will have their just portion poured out to them. As for me, I will continue to serve my God and King whenever, wherever He places me. End
