"For I know the plans I have for you", declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

"Jesus said the her, "I am (Myself) the Resurrection and the Life.  Whosoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in and relies on) Me, Although he may die yet he shall live." John 3:16 Amplified 

When we accept Jesus into our hearts by faith because of His Supreme Sacrifice for everyone by His freely giving His life and shedding His blood as an innocent Lamb on the cross, we also accept the eternal life that our faith in Him brings to us.

If we die before His return for His redeemed people, those that died in faith believing that they will live eternally with God in Heaven will hear the trumpet sound on the day of His returning to gather up His redeemed souls.

The dead in Christ will rise first then those which are still alive on this earth will join them in the air to live forever with our Savior.  Just imagine He has been preparing a home for His redeemed for over 2000 years now, the Bible tells us that we can never comprehend with our human minds what our heavenly home will be like.

Dear precious reader, please stay in the Word of God as much as you can.  The "day of the Lord" is very, very near.  I know that we  have heard all our lives that the coming of the Lord is near.  It is nearer now than it has ever been.  Please stay in the Word, stay in prayer. Keep your lives in sync with Jesus and know at all times that all is right between you and God.  Listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit in your mind and heart He will never lead you astray, but will keep you close to God.You can know that you are ready to hear the trumpet sound that will take His redeemed home to be with Him forever, eternally without end.

Precious reader if we do not heed the calling of the Holy Spirit drawing us to accept Jesus as our personal savior and we miss hearing the trumpet sound as Jesus calls His redeemed home to Himself, those that are left upon this earth will experience the most tragic and terrible time that has ever been upon this earth.

God, who has been so loving and patient with us will remove His mercy and a time of seven years of tribulation will cover this earth.  Please do not take the chance of missing out on hearing the trumpet sound, signaling the Lords' return to take His believers home.  Nothing, NO NOTHING, is worth missing His coming for His believers and having to live through the seven awful, terrible years of the time of tribulation.

Please, right now, bow your head and repent of your sins and wrong doing and accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord. It is so simple to become a child of God (1) Admit that you are a sinner,  (2) Believe that Jesus died on the cross just for you to forgive you of your sins,  (3) Confess your sins to Jesus and ask Him to forgive you of every sin,  Not only will He forgive you of everything you have ever done that you thought was too terrible to be forgiven of, but he will wash you as white as snow, you are now a NEW creature in Jesus Christ.  Tell someone, "I am a new creature in Jesus Christ".   I have given up my old ways Jesus has put a new nature in me.  Find a good Bible believing Church and start attending.  Read the Word diligently and pray every chance you get,  each time you think you have made a mistake and do not be afraid that you will sin and not know it, the Holy Spirit will gently nudge you and tell you not to do that. And if we do sin all we have to do is ask for Jesus' forgiveness and  GO on from there a new creature.  God has forgotten your past do not let satan remind you of it ever again, it is gone it has been covered by the PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS.

"For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He (even) gave up His only begotten (unique) Son so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting life). John 3:16 Amplified

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you:  Before you were born I sanctified you;  and I ordained you a prophet to the nations."Jeremiah 1:5 NIV. (Every time we give a penny or whatever to missions, every time we pray for Missionaries over the world, be are helping be a prophet to the Nations.  We are to show Jesus in our daily living so all will know we belong to Jesus Christ.  Remember there are many people from many Nations living in our own vicinity, show them JESUS!

This morning in my prayer chair, I felt such an awesome presence of God, and I said, "Oh God speak to my spirit, let me be quiet and concentrate on what You have to say to me."

In my spirit I heard Jesus say to me, "Oh my child I have known you before you were created in your mother's womb, and I gave you an early sense of my presence when you were just a child."

"Even though you did not follow me closely through your teen years you always had a "knowing" that I was there.  I have kept you from many dangers and harm even when you did not walk hand in hand with me,"

""I was so filled with Joy and Love for you when at age 24 you turned your heart and life completely over to me, as you let my blood wash away all your sins and mistakes."

" I have been with you and your husband and children through life's good times, and I have given you the faith and courage to walk, to walk with Me through the hard times.  But remember everything in this life good or bad can not ever compare to the joys laid up in Heaven, for you and everyone that accepts me as their Personal Savior."

"I am coming soon so be like the Apostle Paul and say with Him, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.  Heretofore there there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord the  Righteous Judge shall give me at that day: and not to me only but unto all of them also that love his appearing." 2 Timothy 4:7-8 KJV

Precious reader I hope that you also have a special prayer chair that you get alone with God every day and just ask Him to speak to your spirit, and just commune with in the unity of a quiet spirit of love and togetherness.  REMEMBER, HE IS YOUR DEAREST FRIEND FOREVER!!

I Love You, Love Gloria

"Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you  affectionally and cares about you watchfully". I Peter 5:7 Amplified

"Cast your burden on the LORD [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you: He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved, (made to slip, fall, or fail). Psalm 55:22 Amplified

As I read my devotion this morning, the title was "Spirit Sounds, from God Calling, published by Barbour".  The house was empty so I just sat there in my "prayer chair", and was silent just wanting to hear nothing but the Holy Spirit speak to my spirit.

I had been going through some difficult days and God knew that I needed to be silent in His presence and let His precious Holy Spirit renew my mind, my heart and most importantly my worship to Him.  I can never enter the presence of God without a praise to Him.  Even though I was silent, my spirit was praising Him.  It was though I was one with the Trinity [God the Father, Jesus the Savior, and the Holy Spirit of God].

I do not know how long I silently sat in His Presence, but I could feel my mind and my body relaxing and becoming one with God.  It felt like I was being completely renewed both physically, mentally and most of all spiritually, all anxiety was gone.

In a few moments I felt the Holy Spirit speak to my mind to hold out my hands, palms down and to empty everything in my life that was dragging me down, every problem, EVERYTHING  in my life that did not uplift Jesus, to let it go let it all fall from my hands and let Him take them.  I obeyed His instructions and I literally felt the weights of life's trials fall out of my hands as I let go of them.  In a few moments I heard in my spirit to turn my palms up to receive what God had for me for this moment, this day, in His Word the Bible, Jesus speaks to us in Matthew 6:34, Amplified, "Do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own.  Sufficient for each day is its own trouble".  Precious readers we have no promise of a tomorrow, we must leave that to our Father God who knows ALL.  Then I felt the Holy Spirit speak to my spirit. "Now lift your hands into the air and praise Me out loud,  what a glorious time of praise I enjoyed with God.  How renewed and refreshed I was and my mind and body and spirit was in tune once again with God.  I felt a complete renewal in my walk with God.  Please get alone with God often, just be silent and let His Holy Spirit speak to your spirit, He really enjoys being alone with you as much as you will enjoy it.

Precious readers, we must take time regularly to be "silent" in God's presence and let Him do all the talking.  When we do this by being silent in His presence, He can truly speak to us and renew us, our minds, our bodies and our spirit  so that in our daily walk with Him, His thoughts will be our thoughts and His wishes for us will be our wishes for ourselves, and we can be "His Hands" on this earth to reach out to others in need and lead them to Christ Jesus; after all that is our immediate and ultimate task in this world is to show others Jesus through our lives.

Time is short. Jesus is coming soon for those who have accepted His provision for us that He prov ided to all mankind by freely giving His life and shedding His precious blood on the cross 2000 years ago. "For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up  His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal  (everlasting) life". John 3:16 Amplified When we accept Jesus as our Savior, and let His precious Blood cover all of our sins and wickedness, and His Blood will cover all our sins and wickness, they will be covered by His Blood and forgotten by God.  Then  we leave the past behind and go forward from that moment on to live our lives for Jesus Christ and read and study His Word (the Bible), we must immediately find a Bible believing church and get involved with others that  their lives have been made new by the Blood of Jesus, and dear friend that is everyone that is a Christian. A Christian is our name after we have accepted the provision that Jesus made for us to become a new creature in Him.  We are new like a new born baby and as we read and study His Word, talk (pray) to Him every day all during the day, you will grow in your walk in God and you will build up your faith in Him and you will lead others to this saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and His gift of eternal life to everyone that accepts Him as their personal Savior.  You may say I don't know how to talk to God.  Just talk to Him like you would your best friend and He is the BEST FRIEND you will ever have.  Grow closer to Him each day, witness to your friends and if they will not believe you or if they ridicule you for believing in Jesus, just pray for them each day and by your living a completely new life, you will show them that you are sincere and life in Jesus is real.  Get involved with new friends that believe in Jesus and ask them questions, join a good sound   Bible discussion group.  Sunday School is the best group  there is and be consistant in your new walk in God.
With Love, Gloria
