STOP THE MADNESS!!! HELP STOP DOMESTIC VIOLENCE!!!

The life of a loved one or yours for that matter is more important and we are trying to get the awareness out there to save someone from going through the pain, suffering, or death. This is not a game… there are no quizzes on social media sites that will bring awareness to Domestic Violence or Rape of a Child. We need people to open up their ears and hearts and LISTEN!!! Take a moment of your life, browse the internet, read about it.. spread the word… just because it hasn’t happened to you.. don’t just turn away from it. It is real and it is out there. Will you or a loved one be the next “VICTIM” because you didn’t care to take the time to “LISTEN”?

We need to pay close attention to the evil around us and ward it off. We need to listen to what is going on around us…listen to those who speak of evil’s harms and make the choice to do something about it to protect others from being hurt.

If we convince ourselves to “tune it out,” “look the other way,” or “bridle our tongues” when faced with evil, then aren’t we really just denying the fact that the evil is present?

Remembering when I was younger, we use to talk about the next door neighbor being noisy and putting there 2 cents by calling the police. NOW I UNDERSTAND!! It is okay to call the police if you see or hear something suspicious. If you live in the next apartment where you hear screaming all the time. If you hear screaming or sound of a gunshot near you!! CALL 911!

If you see someone bothering a child or hitting them Call Security or 911. It may not be their child!! and so what if it is their child still call.

If you SEE or HEAR someone being assaulted or verbally attacked, don’t just stand there and say “I don’t want to get involved”. DO SOMETHING.. call 911!

If it happens to you, wouldn’t you want HELP???

A lot of lives can be saved if you will not turn a blind eye to DOMESTIC VIOLENCE or ABUSE OF ANY KIND.

WE GOT TO STOP VIOLENCE NOW!!!

BROWSE THE INTERNET FOR RESOURCES TO HELP DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OR ABUSE OF ANY KIND!! IF NOT LET ME KNOW AND I WILL SEND YOU THE INFORMATION!!

If you want to stay anonymous just tell the 911 operator or you can call the National Hotline for Domestic Violence 1−800−799−SAFE (7233), Child Abuse 1-800-422-4453 or Elder Abuse 1-800-752-6200.

Thanks for Listening

A LETTER OF FORGIVENESS, SINCERELY GOD!

My Children:

Whenever you stand to pray, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.” For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him, and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.” Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven. But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense. The prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

Anyone whom you forgive, I also forgive. What I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, has been for your sake in the presence of Christ, so that we would not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs. “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of anyone, they are forgiven; if you withhold forgiveness from anyone, it is withheld.”

Peace be with you!

Seven deadly sins – Associations with demons

Lest not forget that these Demons work alongside as we know him as Lucifer, Satan the Devil himself.

1. PRIDE/Demon (Lucifer, Satan, Devil):

A sense of one’s own proper dignity or value; self-respect in which pleasure or satisfaction is taken in an achievement, possession, or association: Arrogant or disdainful conduct or treatment; haughtiness. A cause or source of pleasure or satisfaction: An excessively high opinion of oneself; conceit.

Proverbs 8:13 and 16:18-19 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogance, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall. Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.

Pride and vanity go hand in hand. Pride is where you deem yourself to be more than you actually are. The king of pride is the devil and he was cast out of the heavens when he tried to lift himself higher than God. Pride destroys you. When men defy God’s judgments and think themselves far from them, it is a sign they are at the door. Let us not fear the pride of others, but fear pride in ourselves. The sin of pride is the sin of sins. It was this sin, we’re told, which transformed Lucifer, an anointed cherub of God, the very “seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty,”1 into Satan, the devil, the father of lies, the one for whom Hell itself was created.2 We’re warned to guard our hearts against pride lest we too “fall into the same condemnation as the devil”. The sin of pride is a preoccupation with self. It is thus very fitting that the middle letter in the word is “i.” Pride is all about “me, myself, and I.” So even as the word “pride” is centered upon an ” i ” the sin itself is also centered upon ”

2. GREED (Avarice, Covetousness) Demon: (Mammon):

A desire to possess more than one has the need or use for, excessive love of money and power.

Proverbs 15:27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.

Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Greed is fueled by desire and the more that you have, the more that you want. Enough is never enough. A miserly spirit often accompanies greed, where those who have and are controlled by greed, fear having to give out even the smallest amount. Money teaches us that we can buy anything that we desire, possessions and even the souls of some. Money gives you power. However we can never buy the most important thing, and that is the Love of Jesus Christ or eternal life in heaven with the Father. I do not condemn the rich, but condemn those who are powered by greed. God should always come first in anyone’s life.

3. ENVY/Demon (Leviathan):

This sin is that of jealousy or perverted love because it is the love and desire to own what belongs to someone else (Exodus 20:17). This transgression is the discontentment over another’s superiority over us in possessions or some good fortune. Envy is the resentment of the good others will or have received.

Proverbs 14:30 A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.

James 3:16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

To be filled with envy is to be filled with a jealousy of what others may have that you do not have. However, in Godly terms to be envious of others is really to be unhappy with what God has given to you and to be unhappy with the destiny that God has laid out for you, wanting the possessions and destiny of others instead. Envy removes you from the path that God has created for you. Being removed from your personal path removes the direction in your life and confusion sets in. In short, it is basically a slap in the face to God. Envy removes you from the will of God and places you outside of the will of God, into a place frequented by all types of evil, against which you then have no form of defense. From envy comes destruction. Overcome envy, knowing that God has the perfect plan for your life, and has all good things planned for you.

4. ANGER/Wrath Demon (Lucifer, Satan, Devil):

This is the transgression of anger or strong exasperation in rage at something or someone. Anger is usually uncontrolled and results in hurt to those who are around you. It is often the result of our impatience or of having our pride hurt.

James 1:20 for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.

Ephesians 4:26-27 In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.

Colossians 3:8 But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips.

Sometimes there are good reasons to get angry. It is quite justified to be angry about sin or to be angry at the devil for the works that he is doing. However, when you are angry without a good cause, you place yourself in a position where you can bring Judgment down upon yourself. It is quite clear from this that anger can be the gateway for us to enter into sin. By falling to the sin of anger and wrath we let Satan win, We are to show to others, the fruits of the Holy Spirit that is growing within us, but anger and wrath are evidence of the flesh and will lead to corruption of the soul and danger of judgment.

5. LUST/Lasciviousness Demon (Asmodeus/Satan):

An intense longing or appetite for something such as money, or sexual cravings and is often manifested in a self-destructive drive for some pleasure regardless of it’s value, merit, or legality. Jesus was and is pure love, and lust is contradictory to love and will lead to sin, which in turn leads to death.

Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

1 John 2:16 For everything in the world -the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does -comes not from the Father but from the world.

Do not confuse Love with Lust because Love is when you will do anything at your own expense, to satisfy the needs of others, whilst lust is when you will do anything at the expense of others, to satisfy your own needs. Lust does not only relate to our flesh and therefore things that satisfy the flesh, but that lust applies to things that we see and desire. We see someone driving a Ferrari, and we begin to lust after that car, we will do all in our power to be the one driving that car, even if it means that our wives and kids are deprived of essentials in order that we can get to be driving that car. Lust of the flesh is when your bodies get filled with a desire and then once filled with desire, you will do anything to satisfy that desire that has built up within you, even if it is at the expense of others. Lust is fueled by Satan himself and his purpose is to fill you with desire that you are unable to control it, and then once you give in to the lust, you are out of the will of the Father and into the sins of the world. Pornography is designed to fuel your desires with lust, and to make the lusts of the flesh and the associated sins that accompany it.

6. GLUTTONY Demon (Beelzebub):

Excess in eating or drinking, greedy or excessive indulgence, as can be seen from this definition, gluttony also refers to a greedy or excessive indulgence in anything. Gluttony overlaps with the sin of greed and it is often found that those who suffer from gluttony also suffer from greed.

Proverbs 23:21 For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

To overindulge in eating or drinking can be harmful to the gift of what God gave you and that is your body. Delicious foods are a universal indulgence that delivers an instant high and seems relatively harmless, except that it’s killing us. We need to take care of our bodies. Haven’t you heard people say, my goodness I ate too much food now I’m tired or sleepy?

What can I say about drinking to excessively? Most of us have experienced that already in Life. Alcohol can be problematic in our health, sclerosis of the liver and destroys the brain. While drinking too much water can actually drown us without being in depths of the oceans.

7. SLOTH Demon: (Belphegor)

A lack of inclination; a mild aversion or reluctance to work or exert oneself; indolence; laziness; idleness, slowness; delay.

Proverbs 19:15 Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.”

Ecclesiastes 10:18 By much slothfulness the building decayeth; and through idleness of the hands the house droppeth through.

Slothful person has the do not care attitude, or one who cannot be motivated to do anything and not caring about the consequences thereof. A slothful person is one who expects all things to come to them, who often demand the best for themselves, without being prepared to do anything or contribute anything towards receiving their hearts desire. If they do not receive that which they want, they make a big noise about it, blame everybody else for it, and accuse everyone else for having stolen their right away from them. A slothful person can never take responsibility for anything, for in being responsible, they admit that the problem lies on their shoulders and therefore it is their lack of diligence that has caused the failure. Sloth is the aversion to work or exertion and accountability. Responsibility requires work or exertion and accountability. Slothful people are selfish (Narcissistic) by nature, and could not care about others. They will only allow themselves to be driven to work under extreme circumstances and desperation, and the benefit of their efforts will be for themselves only.

We will all be held accountable for our works in the final day.

Matthew 12:36-37 But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken. For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words, you will be condemned.

2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.

Revelation 20:12-15 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

God vs Satan

In my own words, I write this to understand more about why life is the way it is and the difference between God’s Love and Satan’s Hate for God.

God created multitudes of angels, including at least three archangels: Lucifer, Michael, and Gabriel. Angels are spirit beings, which may or may not manifest themselves in a visible form (usually not). All angels were created good and holy but Lucifer, the chief worship angel decided to exalt himself and led a rebellion in heaven against God. Lucifer and his angels were cast out of heaven and became Satan and his evil spirits. Satan is active today on earth. Not being everywhere at once, as God is, he works through his forces, including fallen angels and demons. These spirits seek to live in and work through people, usually in a hidden way – usually not openly. The results of Satan’s work are still evident in our world today.

I always hear people say, “The devil has me” or the “The devil made me do it”. The devil doesn’t have you “WAKE UP!” it’s because you don’t want to let go of all Satan offers you. Satan is therefore the author of evil. His chief desire is to receive the worship that belongs only to God the Creator stated so in the Bible. He also works in his hatred against mankind to destroy them as much as he can for time and eternity. “How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: Isaiah 14.12-14, “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.” The spiritual battle is Satan putting 3 temptations in front of you, like giving candy to a baby! In reading 1John 2:15-17, “Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, “the lust of the flesh” and “the lust of the eyes” and “the boastful pride of life”, is not from the Father, but is from the world. The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.”

1. Lust of the Flesh

The lust of the flesh includes the desires of things that we crave for, be it food in that seems so sinless to undesirable things. Satan uses these things that at times we are deprived from for a while, to attack our obedience to God. Hence, causing us to sin.

2. Lust of the Eyes

Lust of the Eyes refers to the desires of what we “see”, alternatively what we think is right. When we submit to this temptation, we choose to ignore God’s word, following our own way. In any cases, it will cause us to defy God and disobedience is a sin! This temptation is closely linked to pride of the life.

3. Boastful Pride of the Life

What boastful pride of the life means is – to be the god of our own life. Thinking that we are better than others, including God when it comes to ignoring God’s word. When we play god in our own lives, we are saying, ‘God, I am better than You, I do not need to follow Your word.” and then we disobey God to Sin. Don’t forget the word in itself PR-I-DE. When you think Selflessly you become PR-u-De. Satan is a very selfless. He wants God’s position and will do anything to get that power through you! You heard the saying “you are your worst enemy” Right? Satan knows if you follow after these things you are following him. Thus you become your own worst enemy.

Question: Why does God permit Satan to exist?

Answer: God gave us free will to make those choices. In Deuteronomy 30:19, “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and acursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” Satan didn’t give you that free will, he only teases and taunts you! Don’t you see that Satan is angry that God is full of Love! The anger you spew from your soul is from Satan because he wants you to be angry about every little aspect of your life even the tragedies you have gone through. He knows what will get you angry and sends messengers to taunt you through the things he has already put you through. Especially when he knows you want to walk with God his enemy. Then what happens? You take your anger/pride out the same people that Satan uses to get you angry. How? by publicly and mentally calling them names or hurting them physically and the satisfaction is not yours but Satan’s. The more you satisfy Satan, he has your soul because you are giving in to him willingly. Like his evil spirits, Satan has a mind, emotions, and a will which is in rebellion against God. They are persons, not forces. Doesn’t the Bible say ” But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” (Matthew 5:38:45). If you are angered by what someone says to you and you react harshly by cursing them out publicly or quietly, Satan is in the background being glorified by you while God is shaking his head. Satan is permitted to operate while God gives mankind time to repent. For God could not forcibly remove evil from the Universe justly unless He also destroyed sinners at the same time. There will be a final battle of God vs Satan, as most of you know as the “Armegeddon”. God instead is holding back his wrath, giving men time to turn to Him. It is up to you.

A lot of people believe in God but has doubted the bible for these reasons in which they say “God didn’t write the Bible, the bible has been handed down from centuries to centuries, and it has too many contradictions about God and his Son Jesus”. Some people have the idea that the New Testament has been translated “so many times” that it has become corrupted through stages of translating. If the translations were being made from other translations, they would have a case. But translations are actually made directly from original Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic source texts based on thousands of ancient manuscripts. We have to remember that God told his Son Jesus In the book of Deuteronomy 18:17-20, “And the LORD said unto me, they have well spoken that which they have spoken. I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words, which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. “ The bible is written from all of these Prophets of God sending out his messages. Paul reminded his student, Timothy, that “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.” Through the Bible, God makes it clear that he loves us and has a plan to save us from the destructive power of sin. The Bible is the best weapon against Satan. Don’t just read it be the doer of God’s word.

This tells me you don’t have to look hard in the Bible for Love because the Bible is about LOVE you are about LOVE! In 1John 4:16-17, “So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him”. If you think you can’t love; just think about it, if you put the love back into your heart, because you already had the love in your soul from the very beginning because God created you in His image, His spiritual blood flows through you, His spirit is your spirit, and His love is your love, then Satan has lost his battle. I repeat, remember this always “Satan doesn’t have you, YOU HAVE Satan”. You can ignore him, throw him away, chase him away, and you surely don’t want him to dwell within you. The truth is within each of us and that truth is what guides us through this life we are reminded of what is righteous and what is sinful and we need to follow the Spirit within us. God the Holy Spirit dwells within us. Your salvation is to admit you are a sinner. Be willing to repent and turn from sin. If you don’t, you will suffer the consequences of destroying yourself that which Satan will always have a home within you. You left the door wide open for evil. I believe the spiritual battle is not with God but with Satan. With all Satan will offfer to you and will do anything to steal your spirit. He will have husbands cheat on their wives, have man commit murders, promise you wealth, have man be liars just like him, and etc.

God has appointed a day when he will judge the world with perfect justice through Jesus Christ, to whom he has given all power and authority. In 2Corinthians 5:10, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.” On that day the fallen angels will be judged as well as everyone who has ever lived on the earth. All must appear before the judgment seat of Christ to give account for everything they have done (their thoughts, words, and actions) while they lived on the earth. Pray to Him, Trust in Him, ask Him for Forgiveness and you will find your way…. just LET GO and LET GOD.

NOBODY IS GOING TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO!

Image result for I'm not listening

When you age in years and go through life’s experiences, you want to per say lend your life experiences to those as a warning sign for their future. The younger generation does not want to hear those warnings but rather go through their own life experiences. Hopefully, they will learn from them. They shun out the older generation while their young and when they get older. They thank you because in some way you have helped them. Some realize they don’t know to thank you or feel regret in not listening to you.

In my case, my older cousins, aunts, uncles, mom, and grandparents use to advice me all the time. My stance is “I’m not listening to anyone, this is my life and I will damn sure do what I want to do”. Lord knows they were right, giving me warning signals as I became older. I surely wished I ‘d listened. The only one thing that I got out of all of this is God and Love. My grandmother taught me both. I guess that is what God does to all of us. He tries to guide us and gives us advice through the Word. But do we listen or do we say again for example:

1. “I’m Grown” I do what I want to do and that’s who I am. And say it while you stammer and throw your fist or hit your chest.
2. Grrrrr nobody tells me what to do Humph!!!
3. If I don’t like somebody Imma tell em because that’s what I do!
4. They say nasty things to me and I’ll show them; watch this.. blah blah blah I don’t care what you think of me, mind your own “D” business.
5. You think I give a “CRAP” what you think!
6. Oh, lord now you done open up a can of “Whip Ass”.

Questions to ask yourself:

1. Do you think if you don’t say something mean back or curse that solves things?
2. Do you get satisfaction when you do retaliate back to the person who dissed you?
3. Do you wonder why your child hears you say those things and wonder where it came from?
4. Does your child get in trouble in school for fighting because he now imitates you at home or in public?
a. Do you feel it is okay when your child hits another child because the other child hit your child first?
b. Do you reward your child for defending himself in a fight?
5. Do you believe in God when it is convenient for you?
6. Do you believe in God just on Sundays?
7. Do you only read the Bible when it only pertains to what you are going through at the time?
8. Do you believe Satan exists and use the excuse the devil made me do it?
9. Are you that parent that tells your child “Don’t do as I do but do as I say”? (example: your child sees you smoking but you tell them not too, you say a curse word but discipline if they do.)
10. Who do you consider your child’s role models?

Just wondering!

We all have a cross to carry. The choices you make right or wrong, you’ve accepted your cross, you’ve welcomed to carry it with all your heart, you believed that the difficulties that loom in compared to the glory that awaits you. Still, my friends, you have to carry it, you chose to, and the burden you will carry is a reality you will go through, it is not an illusion. You can skip or vanquish your burdens with the best and purest of your intentions by learning from those life experiences. Sometimes we all say, I can’t do it, I’m not God, I’m not strong, I’m not as good, and I’m not holy. We all have doubts about what we can do at times but we push through them.

When we fall off our learning path. As children, doesn’t our parents try to put us back on the right path just like God does when we sin? We are like that child in an adult form being tempted to do things that are not surreal. I hear people all the time say they want to get close to God and they go to church every Sunday. They reach out and pray all the time but then yet I see them curse and say God’s name in vain. Or they get so sloppy drunk on Saturday and you can smell them as you pass them by to be seated in church. I see them constantly on FB being or trying to commit to God and “PoW” God gets sucker punched by the things you type. I don’t understand it sometimes. It’s funny how people will add you to their friends’ list but hide you because they really don’t’ want to hear what you have to say. They hide you but guess what, you can’t hide from God. He knows and sees everything you do. The one thing I hear all the time is “I’m not perfect, I’m only human”. God created you to be perfect as soon you were conceived. You became indifferent as soon as you knew you had a free will and choice to make. Yes, your flesh is human but within yourself, you have a spirit. Your spirit is not human but it is of God and gave you life. Let me ask you this last question why not break that chain and don’t say “I’m not perfect”; can you strive to be that perfect person in the Eyes of God? Just asking!

WHEN RACISM HIT HOME!

When Jesus captors approached Him, he never denied being who he is. And said I am who I am and died on the cross for our sins. Just because others have hate in their heart because of race or religion, I will not stoop down to be a hater of people regardless of religion, race, creed or color. Racism is indefensible on both moral and biological grounds. Since becoming a Christian, I have been impressed how the Bible reaches out to people of all races and backgrounds. Even though the world does not always treat humans as equals, as members of the body of Christ, all are equal spiritually in the eyes of Jesus. In fact, those who exalt themselves will be humbled and those who serve others will be exalted to a higher status in the kingdom of heaven. The bible says that there will be “a great multitude, which no one could count” in heaven, and that these people will be “from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues.”

We were all created in God’s image so I’m not going to hide the fact that my ethnic background is many.  My birth took place on America soil; this means I’m an American to which I’m proud to be an American. If you ask me a question of what my ancestors are I will answer you with politeness and truthfulness but I was called a liar. Satan is truly busy. I was accused of having my sons as “trophies” because they are bi-racial. People spout hate and say I was discriminating against my own sons because I mention the words “bi-racial”. According to Webster’s Dictionary the words bi meaning two; racial meaning race. What did they want me to say? They don’t know me and don’t know me nor my sons. I never taught my sons to be haters or racists but raised my sons with Love. My sons are grown men and know who they are and never hated me for their birth. I was smacked down because of my ethnicities. My grandmother through God has taught me to accept people for who they are and not by the color of their skin or ethnic background. I have never put words of hate on any social media sites but try to spread God’s word of Love nor will I ever. I was also told I shouldn’t be proud to be who I am ethnically and should not claim it. How dare they say this. I didn’t ask to be born but I am who I am and I will not hide from it nor will I denounce who I am because of it or pretend to be somebody I’m not. I STAND TALL and say I am proud of my ethnicities and say to God Thank you Lord for giving me Life.

This was a “Negative Energy” I will never want to feel again in my heart. I know it is out there but never really quite felt it like I did. Once again, I AM PROUD OF WHO I AM AND I AM PROUD OF MY SONS FOR WHOM THEY ARE AND THROUGH GOD I LOVE THEM DEEPLY AS I LOVE MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS! With this said, I will move on and I will pray for those who have this hate in their heart like this. Unbelievable!!!

Racism does exist!

MARRIAGE IN GOD’S PERSPECTIVE

Image result for cross and wedding rings

Marriage is all about sacrifice and loving someone else more than yourself. It is death to self. That is the principle behind Jesus’ response to those who abused Him. How much do you love your husband and how much do you desire your marriage to be godly? SOME who lived in Jesus’ day questioned whether marriages could or should last. To them, Jesus said: “Did you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female and said, ‘For this reason, a man will leave his father and his mother and will stick to his wife, and the two will be one flesh’. So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has yoked together let no man put apart.”_ (Matthew 19:4-6),  This is the reason why the “Covenant of Marriage” is his favorite.  Obviously, God intended for marriages to last. In many lands today, some 40 percent or_ The Bible does allow for divorce on the grounds of sexual immorality. —Matthew 19:9.

More of all marriages are “pulled apart,” ending in divorce. Is the Bible’s advice regarding marriage hopelessly out-of-date? Could it be that marriages fail because the arrangement itself is faulty? Consider this illustration: Two couples buy the same model car. One couple maintains their vehicle well and drives it carefully. Their car does not break down. The other couple invests no time or energy in maintaining their vehicle, and they drive recklessly. That car breaks down and is abandoned. Where does the fault lie for the second outcome—with the car or with the owners? Obviously, the owners bear much of the responsibility. Similarly, the fact that many marriages fail does not mean that the institution of marriage is somehow flawed. The millions of marriages that succeed prove otherwise. Those marriages bring happiness and stability to individuals, to families, and to communities. But marriage, like a car, needs good care and regular maintenance if it is to last. Whether your marriage is days or decades old, the Bible’s advice on how to maintain and strengthen it really does work.  “Pharisees came up to Jesus, intent on tempting him and saying: ‘Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife on every sort of ground?’”—Matthew 19:3.

Some spouses, however, may take on extra work or hobbies just so they do not have to spend time with their mate. Such individuals are not “growing apart” from their spouse. They are running away from problems. If you or your mate falls into that category you need to identify the underlying issues and deal with them. Only by sharing your life with your mate can the two of you grow together and “become one flesh” in the fullest sense.—Genesis 2:24.

If your husband is reluctant to make decisions or to take the lead in managing the household, you have at least three options.

(1) You could constantly point out his failings or

(2) you could usurp his role as head of the family or

(3) you could sincerely commend him for any efforts he does make. If you choose either of the first two options, you will tear down your house with your own hands. Choosing the third option will help you build up, or strengthen, your marriage. The two of you need to discuss those issues.

(Proverbs18:13) But the words you choose and the tone you use will help either to tear down or to build up your marriage. (Proverbs 21:9; 27: 15) Express yourself respectfully, and you will be more likely to achieve the outcome you want—a mate who does not hesitate to take the lead. When you were first dating, you were likely so focused on your prospective mate’s fine qualities that you barely noticed his other flaws. Can you do the same now? No doubt, your mate gives you legitimate cause for complaint. However, ask yourself, ‘On which of my mate’s qualities will I choose to focus—the good or the bad?’ Jesus used a powerful illustration that shows the need for us to overlook the flaws we see in others. “Why do you look at the straw in your brother’s eye,” he asked, “but do not consider the rafter in your own eye?” (Matthew 7:3) A straw could be a small piece of grass. A rafter, on the other hand, is a bulky length of timber used to hold up thereof of a house. His point? “First extract thereafter from your own eye, and then you will see clearly how to extract the straw from your brother’s eye.”—Matthew 7:5. Jesus introduced this illustration with a sobering warning. “Stop judging,” he said, “that you may not be judged; for with what judgment you are judging, you will be judged.” (Matthew 7:1, 2) If you would like God to overlook your faults—the rafter in your eye—it is in your best interests to overlook flaws in your mate.—Matthew 6:14, 15.

Conclusion:  God gives us advice to be sincerely loving and patient with each other.  He also states that a marriage couple should pray together regularly.
