'THE NAME OF THE LORD IS A STRONG TOWER; THE RIGHTEOUS MAN RUNS INTO IT AND IS SAFE.' [KJV PROVERBS 18:10]
Welcome! Welcome! Welcome! TO MY HOME 'in and with JESUS'!!
WELCOME TO MY HOME!!
Please come in and visit all the 'rooms'.
In this Room - WELCOME - you will find 'general topics'.
Be sure to hoover over each of the various 'rooms' 'navigation bars' for any of the 'rooms' messages in each 'blog' before you leave a 'room'. And please, do plan to return for updates.
In Room - SANCTUARY - find an 'oasis'!
Get in the habit of checking out all under this 'category' for the 'total feast'! See the blog, and future posts.
In Room - TOPICAL SUBJECTS - you will have 'progressed' far. So then, please look for a 'smorgasbord' of 'delights' for the 'soul'!
Under this 'navigational bar', you will find subjects for your life today on many 'topics'. As a matter of fact, NO TOPICS ARE OMITTED. WOW!!
Totally candid! These 'Rooms' so far, are BUT, 'appetizers'!
But, if you are not the 'scary type' and have not turned back yet, well, you can continue on your own personal 'journey' to 'come to the faith' of and in - Jesus Christ.
But, it does not stop there. Oh, my, no. You are then, ONLY BEGINNING AND WILL SPEND THE REST OF YOUR LIFE - 'GROWING IN THE FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST'! What a 'privilege', indeed! Therefore, let us 'press on'.
In Room - LET'S HAVE SOME FUN STUDYING THE BIBLE - THE BOOKS OF THE HOLY BIBLE
WARNING!! THESE POSTS WILL REQUIRE SOME HEAVY LIFTING! But, in the end, you will not be disappointed.
The 'plan' is that by now we have all 'warmed up' and have an 'appetite', 'a ravaging hunger', a 'thirst' for much more than 'topical appetizers'. So, now it is time for the 'full-meal deal'. It is time to 'grow-up' in His Word so that you may really live 'an abundant life' now and unto eternity. This is where you become - an adult or mature believer and follower of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. You want to be totally submitted and surrendered - desiring to live your life - JUST LIKE HIM!
These are the 'stages' through which my Mother 'successfully trained me' in 'His Word' so that now that I am older, I cannot, I will not, by His Grace, turn away from Him. [Proverbs 22:6] I lovingly share them with you.
THEN, MOVE ON TO 'Room' - THE BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW AND HISTORY - the last, but certainly not the least - you will get the understanding of why I, and my sisters and brothers 'in Jesus' see the world the way we do. You may even, for the first time, better understand some one in your life, who you had not understood previously. When a person grows up under the 'principles of the Word of God', that person may be able to 'discern' and 'understand' life and events, as the Lord 'understands' and 'knows' them. By being close to Him, a person adjusts their way of thinking AND ACTIONS, WITH THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. These adjustments enable the person to be 'in harmony and unity' with Him, who we know is our Good Shepherd. This is critically necessary. YOU LEARN THAT NO MATTER WHAT THE OUTCOME, WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN OBEDIENT TO HIM AND HIS WORD, HE WILL WORK IT ALL TOGETHER FOR GOOD FOR ALL CONCERNED. [Romans 8] And, it is only in 20/20 'hindsight' that you may understand more clearly. When you do, well, then it is the time for the 'hallelujah chorus'! You have all the 'fruit of the Spirit' and have actually been personally 'experiencing' the Very Almighty God.
Thus, we do not worry, for we know that He is SOVEREIGN, He is ALWAYS GOOD, and HE IS IN CONTROL AND DOING AND BRINGING ABOUT - HIS SOVEREIGN, GOOD PURPOSE AND PLAN AT ALL TIMES!
(Yep! That even means when we think from our limited so-called 'logical', 'horizontal view' that something is bad, cruel, an injustice, or the like, it may not be so in the 'eyes of the Lord'. That may be true, but, never factor out - HIS DIVINE 'VERTICAL' VIEW AND PLAN THAT ONLY HE KNOWS. You may come to understand this as we progress in our 'rooms', and through the Bible. I earnestly pray that you do, for there is such 'peace' with this 'understanding' of the Wonderful - Almighty God. You cannot help but love Him!)
FINALLY, In Room - AUTOBIOGRAPHY - first some of My Testimonial, my 'personal witness', with no apologies, nor any regrets - but - a life well-lived and continuing - "IN JESUS"! There is absolutely no other reason for who I am, and the life I have lived and continue to live - BUT FOR 'THE GRACE, MERCY, LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS OF GOD, THE FATHER; JESUS CHRIST, MY LORD AND SAVIOR; AND THE HOLY SPIRIT' IN MY LIFE SINCE THE SECOND SUNDAY IN AUGUST, 1956'!
Then over time, more subjects to help you shall be added as I am moved to do so.
Each time you enter, may you enter any of the 'Rooms' with an 'open heart', seeking the Lord, to know Him, and you will never be - disappointed. Father, for your Glory and for the sake of Jesus Your Son and Mankind's Savior, grant to those who enter, a knowledge of You. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen. Amen.
"Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." Matthew 7:13-14 (NJKV)
