BEING ASSURED OF SALVATIONAuthored by the Holy Ghost. and penned by Holy men of God, and delineated in His Holy Word, the Bible
Jesus is the faithful and true witness, who gives us the reliable truth that we must have in order to find life and live life as God intends. Faith and trust in Him develops in our lives, but not as a result of a personal effort to learn it, but is a gift for our diligently seeking His Kingdom. Jesus is the author and the finisher of our faith as we see His faithful and true character. His word is a vital part of this process, since it has the same character that He has. When we first received the word of God, and believed, and trusted Him to do all that He says He will do, it changed our lives. This is how we started out with God: This is when we were born again, and given true life, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible seed, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, because, as He declares: “All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and its flower falls away, but the word of the Lord endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel, the written word of God recorded in His scripture; we have divinely had the knowledge of Jesus revealed to us, and we experienced the heavenly birth of our spirit. (Given true life, born again) Then by believing, and trusting Jesus, and by faith in this truth we were adopted into the family of God in conjunction with the incorruptible, living, eternal word of God being planted like a seed into our lives. However, we must realize that getting born again is not something that we do, for we cannot by ourselves gain this wondrous status, nor is it just to miss hell, or just to receive favor from God. Our purpose now must be to please God, and to enhance our personal relation and fellowship with Him, and to be ready to lay down our lives in order to assist Him as His co-laborer, or co-worker during His purpose in the fulfillment of His plan to annihilate all evil and reestablish His relationship with man. To be His special possessions in the earth and to do whatever He tells us to do. Our top priority is to give ourselves to Him and to live in communion with Him. To spend enough time with Him that we can hear His voice and respond in obedience.
This occurred when we began to study that very intimate letter addressed to each of us from our heavenly daddy, the Bible, and we heard the good news, the gospel. We then believed the good news of Jesus Christ, and this seed germinated within us unto life eternal.After being born again by grace through faith in Christ, God's plan was that we continue to respond to His word, For this reason we should also thank God without ceasing, because when we first received the word of God, we welcomed it, not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in all who believe, and our names are recorded in the holy book of life. However, I have to alert you that it is possible through allowing what the unsaved masses of this carnal world portrays as practical to loose your salvation.. This can happen because as we begin to receive knowledge of God, and of Jesus, we are constantly being attacked by our adversary to influence us to value more the things we are familiar with in this world than the unknown truth of God’s domain. We are warned by the word of God not to deviate from our course of restoring our relationship with God, which was lost when Adam failed to obey the commandment of God not to eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge. All of the unredeemed, as well as all of their cultural networks, are under the influence of the evil one. We are vulnerable to this same fate by carelessly casting away, our confidence in the truth of His word, and promises because we allow the carnality of this world infiltrate our mind and thus, our heart.
There is also another way, and we all should be aware of it, and knowledgeable of just how it can happen, and then experience our names being blotted out of the book of Life. I have been told of a man who is a medical doctor, and was believed to be a dedicated believer who when he went to India on a mission of mercy, was so influenced by the extent of poverty, and suffering of malnutrition, he could not fathom there being a God of love, and compassion that would allow this condition to exist. He from that experience has denied there ever being a God as defined in the Gospels and fell away from God’s truth. The writer that penned God’s words in the book of Hebrews recorded these words: “It is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, and have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, if they should fall away, to renew them again unto repentance.” That means to restore, and to regain their salvation.
I implore you not to merely read the stories of the Bible, but to study the words and expect the Holy Spirit, the author of these words to reveal to you the concealed message they contain, and open your understanding. The Bible is the most majestically engineered, and integrated intimate message from our daddy, that merely reading the words can leave you as ignorant of the true knowledge of God and Jesus as you were before, even if you have confessed Jesus as your Lord, and received His redemption from all your inequities.
I implore you to set aside all your personal experiences wherein you seemed to be tried, and possibly viciously attacked by our adversary to sway you away from the truth. Remember, Jesus is the only faithful and true witness for the validity of God’s word that made it possible that we become heavenly knowledgeable, and our faith in our promised destiny for eternity. There is so much more that God has made available through His blessings He wants you to enjoy during this mortal life, but the real thing is the exceedingly great and wondrous life for all of us in eternity. For the best is yet to come.

In truth, you are going to take it with you like it or not, but what is meant by “IT”, that you are taking, it is everything you possess other the material things that you have gained as yours in this world, and in either a selfish way, or in an unselfish sharing way that you laud, and may honestly, but mistakenly feel is in consonance with the will of our Father because of distorted, or limited teaching. It is what you have chosen between Blessings and life, or curses and death. To explain, let us review just what life is, and what death is. Question, how is it possible to define death in a world where there is no death, which is in God’s domain, but everlasting life, or is it possible? Has it happened? What happened to God’s anointed cherub who was His covering angel. It is penned by the profit Ezekiel in chapter 28just how he transformed himself from having life to being lifeless by exalting himself, and thus permanently being separated from God. That did happen, and in all places, it happened in heaven. Therefore existing without life, he becomes the author of all evil, and curses. In Deuteronomy 30:19 Moses penned what God instructed him to write describing the issue before each of us where God proclaimed He set before us individually the alternative between two choices with no compromises. One meant we would establish a oneness with Him and have a life everlasting filled with all the blessings that He has established for His children, or two, we would choose an existence without Him for eternity, and suffer the consequences of all the curses that would befall us. This exemplifies the truth that life without God is death even if we function as a live man, and that life cannot be described as the period of time between womb, and grave, but first knows that God created man in His exact image after His likeness. That means man was, and is today created as a spirit having eternal life, but when Adam disobeyed God and did eat the forbidden fruit he changed the whole scenario, and God majestically formulated and put into action a plan to re-establish that lost companionship, and intimate fellowship with man.
That verse 19 of chapter 30, emprises that we cannot serve two different masters simultaneously, or serve God and mammon (meaning wealth) too. Making this choice, which we must, realize that it does encompass much more than carelessly mouthing agreement to choose with a haphazard manner life, and then continuing to live as if we are the masters of our soul, and disregard having to pay any attention to His commandments, ordinances, precepts, and instructions. A good example of this is Jonah who disobeyed God when he tried to avoid a commandment. The blessings alluded to in that verse 19 not only pertains to our period of time living in this carnal environment of this world, but are ment to be eternal. They are delineated in Deuteronomy 28: verses 1through 14, and are contingent upon our obedience to Him.
The curses that will befall us should we choose not to accept God’s offer, and end up choosing death, or permanent separation from Him are delineated in verses 15 through 68 of that same chapter 28. Diligently seeking truth I must implore you to heed all God’s instructions, and not falsely assume you need not rightly respond to such details.
I earlier stated that this pertains to our mortal life, and it does, but it refers to the omega of that magnificent wondrous will of God for our final inheritance, the best that is coming, the age of eternity with our heavenly father and family. It is our promised inheritance, and is our hope of all Glory.
We are instructed by his word to study to make us acceptable unto God, then to rightly divide the word of truth. In that vein I ask you to privately examine your status as it relates to this issue. Are you alive, or are you among the walking dead?

Know Me

One day some time ago I while I was in meditation, I being is the spirit, entered into my Father’s throne room to offer Him and Jesus my prayer of, praise, thanksgiving, and worship. While I was in this state of prayer this is what manifested. Jesus brought to my mind how He selected the twelve men to relinquish all that they had, and to follow Him. I responded by asking Him to accept me, and teach me to be a like follower. Since I had lived a lifetime, and been widowed three times, my primary purpose for living had become a desire to gain the knowledge of God and Jesus, and if that meant to be His servant, so be it. I proclaimed that I was not desirous to be just a mimic of them he had chosen, or a master quarterback of any team, or to be recognized for more than being your servant. I had no desire to gain accolades for self, but to become a learner, a student, and have you teach me in all the ways of our Father, and reveal the amazing truths pertaining to the life of promise. It was then told me that all that I ask will be as I stated. He then informed me that the world system in which I live is corrupt, and He does not expect me to have to battle through all the maze of deception alone, but to trust Him, and He will bring me through to His predicted end.
I am not so old not to realize to follow Him I need to know Him intimately, and to know Him in this way or manner means that I must submerge myself in the word provided by the Holy Spirit, which I did, and I do continually. It is the inerrant, uncompromising word that was made flesh to live among us. It is the scriptures recorded in the Bible. This word is alive, and is Life, it is Jesus. As I make this word the foundation of my abode, He reveals all truths, His nature, the purpose, and will of our Father unto me.
I have responded, and found His Sabbatical Rest with serene peace having the assurance that I have overcome this world being one in Jesus, and I want to share this, that all my friends might be encouraged to first seek His Glorious Kingdom, and find the gift of real life, along with full redemption from the blight of sin we were all recipients of through our inheritance from Adam.

Can you imagine living comfortably, being married, having parents, siblings and friends, and seemingly getting along in this world just fine. Maybe that describes you today although you may be struggling to make ends meet while coping with everyday issues, and just imagine quite suddenly the Spirit of our God pays you a visit. He makes himself known and then proceeds to tell you must make a drastic change in your life, and living habits: Remove yourself from the very country you call home, and from all family members including your father’s house, and go into territory of this earth that I will lead you to, and show it unto you. This happened to a you man about 350 years after the flood in Noah’s time, and his name was Abram, later changed to Abraham. He obeyed God, and we have the relationship with our Lord today because he believed and trusted God. This depicts a challenge which is before all of us this day, and we all individually must choose to obey or deny God’s instructions to be able to overcome Satan’s evil influence in our mortal life.
The following is from a daily devotion I receive from the Kenneth Copeland ministries which I recognize as applicable to this profound message:
Have you ever been afraid to give yourself totally to the Lord because you think you might be deprived of some pleasure in this life? Chances are, you have. That's because Satan is working overtime to convince you that he can really make your life worth living. But don't believe him for a minute. The real truth is, yielding completely to the Lord won't cost you anything that's worth having. It will only cause you to live life to its fullest! Jesus' life on earth was a perfect example of a totally yielded life. He was a walking example of the benefits godly living brings. Everywhere He went, Jesus made the deaf to hear, the blind to see, the lame to walk, fulfilling the will of our Father toward His created man. He lived in perfect peace and absolute victory. This all sounds pretty good to me. All He missed out on was the devil getting dominion over Him to kill, steal and destroy. In fact, the devil couldn't do anything to Him until, by the Father's will, He laid down His life. Until that time Jesus walked in total victory over the enemy. Do you think you would miss out on a lot if you lived that way? Of course not! You can walk in that same anointing and power and glory of God that Jesus did. Do you have to give up your whole life to do it? Yes! You have to trade your carnality of life for the life of God. You have to trade your sickness for His healing, your poverty for His prosperity, your anxiety for His peace, your sin for His righteousness. So why hesitate? When it gets right down to it, you really have nothing to lose except the miseries of mortal life.

Choose to move today.

Before reading this posting read 2Thessalonians 2:7 thru12


It was only about 100 years ago that we would occasionally hear, “EXTRA! EXTRA! REAS ALL LABOUT IT”, as the News paper street vendors would call out as breaking news became available. There was no other way as television had not been invented, and radio was very limited to wireless telegraphy, transistors, microcircuit, computers, and satellites or the internet were beyond comprehension. There were no telephones for they were not yet widely available for domestic service, for telephone service was in its infancy. Just think, there was no radio, no TV, no telephone service and probably most incomprehensible, no cell phones. The only means information was distributed was by word of mouth, or by letter, or news papers.
Seriously I believe that we have already entered into the period described as the last of days, or end of this world which will mark the return of our Lord Jesus to set-up His everlasting kingdom on this planet earth. We should be aware of every troubling, and seemingly innocent changes as they are occurring concerning our survival, for it is predicted that perilous times will begin occurring at a increasing rate during this period of time.
So be alert and prepared for these changes. The vanity of this world’s apparent technical advancement that have been gained in communications, education concerning celestial and terrestrial knowledge has resulted in the vanity of human behavior fed byIgnorance of knowledge of the nature, and character of God, and the soundless news media. There news broadcasts are mostly commentators view tempered with their own opinions without foundation resulting in their listeners believing in something that is contrary to reality, sometimes having a deep deceptive motive. This is evident in the dishonorable behavior of the political arena where selfish erroneous claims are depicted every day. In addition to this there has been an increasing satanic influence that has infiltrated not only governments with anti believers wanting to abolish our countries constitution, and Christian founded religious dogmas, and right from the church sanctuary many accursed ministers are teaching false doctrine that compromises the true word of the gospel of our Lord Jesus. In 1945 four leading nations of theis world founded the, United Nations to provide a platform upon which international court of justice with the participation of other member nations would be able to maintain total peace and harmony among all nations and territories on the face of the world, and thus eliminate forever any discord among nations. The fundamental purpose was admirable, but today its actions are anything but for the rogue nations have apparently taken control.
This all works to condition, or program our minds to be submissive to the deceptive lie, of a power seeking political figure that will sometime in the not so distant future be indentified and will trigger a period of great misery and distress over all the world as God finally executes judgment upon all mankind who have refused to obey His commandments, His ordinances , to apply His precepts, and refuse His Grace as did the people of Noah’s time when He will again pour out on all the world His final wrath predicted known as the tribulation.
Yet before the predicted time of the occurrence of the beginning of this agony, there will happen a super natural manifestation of the pouring out for all living souls God’s final act of His Grace. His making available for all to receive His Holy Spirit by calling on the name of Jesus to save them, and by doing so, will be spared from having to endure the terrible wrath of God, and the period of tribulation, for the integrity of Jesus is faithful to His word to come and receive all that have called His name for salvation, and believing in your hart for Him to do what He has proclaimed, and do not doubt, He will do everything that He has promised He would do.
The issue before you this day is, ‘when’ , and is it too late? The answer is no, it is not too late, but you do not have the luxury of time as I did. All the signs Jesus predicted to precede the initiation of this momentous change have occurred except the rapture, and the exposure of the anti Christ, therefore the beginning of the end can begin at any time that He chooses. With that said, take heed and prepare yourself to meet your God, Jesus face to face in the not too distant future.

I was recently invited to attend the largest gathering of professional literary individual authors, publishers, promoters, and organizations in the USA. It is known as; Book Expo America”, and is held once annually in New York City. I accepted the invitation even though my latest book, “THE BEST IS YET TO COME” is not yet published. Although I was not able to meet many of the media my producer and I hoped to meet, but I did received a valuable education concerning the process of marketing a product for public consumption, and sharing God’s love with those I met.
I must comment that I witnessed the mighty power of God as many were interested in me, and my work, so I have prepared an introduction of me, and what influences me to write. The bottom line is that my producers/Public Relation representatives released the facts about me and my work, and have had at least 240 media outlets throughout the country publish the story of me and my work. All I can say is to God is all the Glory.
My introduction:
I had just been widowed the second time and felt that all was lost and life was over, but, a lady destined to be my third wife, named Phyllis, rescued me from the grief I had allowed to encompass me. We were married September 2, 2000. It was the beginning of a precious time in my life as she was a true helpmeet. That same year I was influenced by the Holy Spirit of God to write a story. It began as a memoir of my life to leave as a heritage for my descendants. I was constantly having my memory refreshed by reliving every event in my life, and I was viewing it all through the lens of scripture. God’s Holy Spirit guided me by revealing truths not before knowledgeable. Proof that the events I experienced are evidence of the validity of the Bible being the uncompromising, inerrant, absolute true word of God. During this time the Holy Spirit revealed the existence and ever present force of evil. This spirit of evil is God’s adversary who is dedicated to separate each one of us from one another, and permanently from the love of God. I tried working diligently with a literary agency to display my unpublished work to publishing houses, but it was of no avail. After six more years past, I was widowed again for the third time, and eventually found myself in a retirement and assisted living establishment due to being disabled caused by macular degeneration resulting in sight impairment. It was less than one year later I was legally blind and it was impossible to use my computer to finish or make any changes to my work. However, God was not through with me or my stories which by this time were changed to being His messages for those who are confused in this mixed-up world. Being a World War II veteran I was invited by the department of veteran’s affairs to attend a rehabilitation program for the blind. I received training how to overcome my handicap and was given a new computer with software installed having advanced technology. The software now permits me to hear what I write as I write it and should I misspell a word it alerts me. It also will audibly read whatever is displayed on the monitor if I activate the document reader. With nothing to hinder me, I relinquished my selfness to God, and submerged myself into His word. Having no excuse, I then prioritized time to study His Word. While I gained knowledge that according to His word, is not easily comprehended because of the work of Satan for centuries past. He has since revealed certain truths to me only available through the divine revelationary work of His Holy Spirit. While listening to the wee small voice of the Spirit of God, He expounded on the Excellency of my gaining knowledge of Christ Jesus. The key to this knowledge was stolen or lost before the earthly ministry of Jesus by the malicious and devious work of Satan. You might ask how it was stolen. Satan was able to expound on the frailty of man. His lack of integrity, his dependency on his fleshly knowledge of sensory perception, his egoism, pride, self exaltations, ignorance’s, and this world’s religious piety, and the political culture of legalism to take away the key of true knowledge. This condition has not changed to this day but has worsened. I knew that I could not write or say anything that God had not already written, and thoroughly explained, yet cleverly concealed in His Word. I asked myself often, why I am doing this. I can’t add anything to what is already written but the Holy Spirit said “yes, but my children need the Key”. Many have become victims of Satan’s evil spirit and need enlightening and can relate to your stories and be able to apply their Grace given authority to overcome the now powerless adversary. I still questioned my Lord, “why me?” He told me that He chooses whosoever He wills to be His servants, and I heard Him say, “He will perfect that which concerns me and forsake not the works of my own hands”. That finally did it and I stopped asking why me? I guess that I may be one of those, “whosoever’s”. He then reminded me that I should not think too highly of myself, but continue to grow in Grace, and in the ‘knowledge’ of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I humbly post this notice for your edification.

There is a mystery cleverly concealed throughout the Holy Word of God. This mystery alludes to the very important task that each of us on a individual basis must gain an intimate relationship with Jesus by our comprehending what God is revealing that which He has concealed within His word. Then as we study and meditate on that word have our understanding awakened by the Holy Spirit that we attain the truthful and precious knowledge of Jesus the Christ. I call it precious because it determines what joy you have during your journey through mortal life, and will also be a determining factor where you will spend eternity.
I draw your attention to the second epistle of Peter to note how he addressed it. It is addressed only to: “those who have obtained like precious faith with us, (the apostles,) through the righteousness of God and our Savior Jesus Christ.” Note: he didn’t say that he learned this, or was it taught to him by the master, but that it was received as one receives a gift, and it was not until after Jesus had been crucified, and resurrected, and then only after the Holy Spirit was given to them on the day of Pentecost.
Peter goes on in verses 2,3 and 4, saying, “Grace and peace be multiplied unto you ‘through the knowledge’, of God, and of Jesus our Lord, according as His divine power has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and Godliness, and again emphasizes the word knowledge as he says, ‘through the knowledge’ of him that has called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these, we might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in this world through lust. At this point, I will make a few comments for you to note.
They are: We are given all things that pertain to life guides and help us to live a graciously blessed life while in this mortal body. You may be asking, what things? For instance we have been given full authority over all the power of our enemy when we use it in the name of our redeemer, Jesus. And, according to the apostle Paul he penned in Ephesians 1:3, we have been blessed with all, not just a few, but all spiritual blessings from God to whom all Glory and Praise should be given. Yet without having attained that personal, intimate knowledge of God and Jesus, we traverse the path of life handicapped, and ever wondering why your life may be so erratic, and influenced by the frequent disasters, and evil forces of this world. Yet, without faith, without fear, without doubt, and wondering if you have been heard, but trusting unequivocally in our Lord, you will during meditation hear in your heart the Lord speaking to you.
To further your knowledge and understanding review Genesis 4 verse 7, of the King James Version, but first in verse 6, God has asked Cain why he is so upset. In verse 7 as God is continuing to talk with Cain, he speaks an important instruction that He intends us today to heed it. Read it once just as it is written. Then read it over but insert your name right after the second word ‘thou’ so it will read, “If thou (name) doest well shall thou not be accepted? Note: accepted by whom? Throughout His word, the Bible, it informs us that in order to partake of his everlasting Kingdom we musts be acceptable unto God. God then continues by giving a warning, If we do not that which is pleasing unto Him, Satan, or sin awaits, or lurches at the door of your soul, your heart, and he wants you, so you must learn to rule him, to master him, to control him, to overcome him in the name, JESUS, and without having the true knowledge of God and Jesus, you are on your own. To further emphasize this look at Hosea chapter 4 and verse 6 where the Lord talking with Hosea said: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: Addressing the teachers, the Priests God said this is happening because you have rejected knowledge [of Me], so I will reject you that you will be no priests [servants] to Me: seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children. Now how important do you think understanding knowledge of God, Jesus and His precepts are?
Now let us review 2 Corinthians 8:7 again to visit the need to attaining true knowledge of our Lord. Assuming that you have a personal relationship with our Lord this, and following verse addresses the sincerity of all of God’s word. However, this verse particularly addresses five virtues of which we need knowledge and understanding that will be of great worth as we commune with our Lord. The verse refers to gifts given to us that further explain, “All things that are given unto us that equip us efficient enough to deal with all the issues pertaining to life”. They are the words: abundance, faith, utterance, knowledge, diligence and love. Now review the noted scripture: It states, “As you abound in every thing [note the word thing again], in faith, in utterance, in knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love toward us, [fellow man] and see that you abound in this grace. [Boldly excel in the gracious acts of giving and witnessing.]
I pray these words help you to relinquish yourselves to Jesus, and when you do, you will hear his voice.

As I journey through the maze of this life, I am continually awed, and humbled as I witness the mighty works of my heavenly daddy as He orchestrates the victory over the events I have, andam currently being exposed to, and I want to share them with you. As I am maturing in the knowledge of my Lord and Master teacher Jesus, and I am a handicapped legally blind 90 year plus old disciple of His, I hear His voice speaking to me through the voices of many of His anointed messengers. Following is a good example. It is derived from one of two daily thoughts for meditation I receive via e-mail that inspire me to pass the message it contains on to you, and this one is from Bob Hoekstra of the Blue Letter Bible Ministry. The apostle Paul penned in hisletter to the church at Corinth the following, and I reiterate his message: You are manifestly an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart. (2 Corinthians 3:3) This is a truth that we must acknowledge, and accept the responsibilities by being prepared that it may require of us to confront counterfeit fraudulent or erroneous religious teaching about God and Jesus. It is a significant characteristic resulting from our living by faith is that we become living letters of Christ. "You are manifestly an epistle of His. The Lord wants to turn our lives into a "walking and talking letter of Him." He wants to make us a living explanation of who He is and all the blessings He offers. What a great privilege and challenge this presents as we go about our daily responsibilities; unfortunately many of our brothers and sisters live their lives void of the true knowledge of our Lord, but they are, witnesses of our lives, and while they are observing us, they can actually be learning of the truth and love of our Lord Jesus, as He is working in and through us. Although this may sound like too much to hope for, the Lord declares in His word that this process can become very clear to those who are watching us: "You are manifestly[thatis, "plainly recognized as"] an epistle of Christ." Remember, this is what is availablefor "ministers [servants] of the new covenant" which He has ordained all of us to be. (2 Corinthians 3:6). This is what happens in those who live by faith in Jesus and by the grace of God. This is something that God does in us, not something we manufacture for Him. Certainly, people are involved in the process. We become fully engaged by humbly and dependently seeking that elusive knowledge of Jesus who wants to work in us. Others also get involved by ministering to us. Paul writing to the church of Corinth is applicable today when he penned, "You are manifestly an epistle of Christ”. As God’s word informs us that He had Paul minister His truth to these saints at Corinth, and that these living letters of Christ were not being written by ink, as ordinary letters would be, but God views them the same today as a divine forever living unction unto you as, “We are manifestly an epistle of Christ, ministered by the Holy Spirit, written not with ink but by the Spirit of our living God." God's Holy Spirit continues at work writing on our hearts those letters that as our lives will be transformed to reflect His Glory, we truly become living epistles of Jesus. Notice where the Lord was inscribing these living letters: "not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart." The old covenant message of law was written on stones. The new covenant message of grace is written on the hearts of all who walk in humble dependence upon God. This heavenly work changes us from the inside out, making us living letters of Christ! Dear God of all grace, I humbly admit that I need to be more and more changed into a living letter of Christ. So often, those who read me see only me. I ask You in faith to inscribe the character of Christ upon my heart, that others may see Him in my daily walk, Amen.

Get into a small confined space such as an elevator ant ther be someone in there that smells as if they bathed in a tub of perfume you would know it immediately. Likewise, should there be someone who has not bathed for a long time and wearing the same clothing, they probably will have an odor called body odor. These type fragrances are quickly identified by one of our five senses. However, God’s word to us states as we become knowledgeable of our Lord, we will emulate Jesus wherever we go. In 2 Corinthians 2:14 and 15 we learn that we should always be thankful unto God for leading us triumphantly through the maze of this mortal life because we abide in Christ Jesus, and through us we defuse the fragrance of His knowledge to all we meet. The word also states that we are to God, the fragrance of His son, our Lord, Christ Jesus.
How important is this for you and me? I cannot over emphasize the importance of apprehending what God is revealing through these passages. As early as Hosea the profit wrote sometime between 722 and 721 years before the birth of Jesus a message from God: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: and because you have rejected knowledge I will also reject you, that you shall be no priest to me: seeing you have forgotten the law of God, I will also forget your children.” Therefore, give diligence to his word, and ask yourself, what kind of aroma do I present to God?
As we are getting to know the Lord more and more, our God is not the only one who is impacted. This spiritual aroma of Christ impacts every person we meet. "God, through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place." This includes both the saved and the unsaved. "For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing." This fragrance affects those who know the Lord: "the fragrance of Christ...among those who are being saved." For those who are enjoying life in Christ, that heavenly scent in our lives is "the aroma of life to life." Christ's fragrance in us draws them to seek abundant measures of that life which they have already entered. This spiritual scent also influences those who do not yet know our Lord: "the fragrance of Christ among those who are perishing." To them it is "the aroma of death to death." They are dead in their sins, and this aroma makes them more aware of their deadness, more aware of their need for Christ. A personal warning: be not complacent, believing all that is required is belief in God, and go to church for an hour once a week, and give something as tithe, then go about your business seeking, or enjoying the amenities of this world only. When this fragrance is emanating from our lives, we are not the cause. God is the active agent, working in and through us to bring forth this heavenly scent. "Now all thanks be unto God who...through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge." This work of God's grace is available to us every day we live and everywhere we go: "the fragrance of His knowledge is available in every place." The apostle Paul evaluating himself penned in Philippians chapter 3: verses 7 and 8 that all he had gained in this world before he was miraculously converted by his encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus, (Acts chapter 9) he considered it all as lose for gaining the Excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus our Lord.
I have often asked in prayer and meditation why God, has it taken so long for me to first apprehend and then comprehend this message with understanding? But it has, and I am humbled while giving all thanks and praises to my Lord Jesus.

You say that everything about you is so forcibly wrong, and that you are tired of living, or trying to live in this world. You tell me of two incidences have impacted your life. They are two women living in the same facility where you are staying took their own lives by committing suicide on two different days within the past week. You give me the impression that you also feel like escaping from the evil of this world in the same manner. It’s exactly what the evil powers in these last days are frantically trying to accomplish, that is to snare as many souls as they can, for they realize their time is now up. You see what I am speaking about when you meditate for a moment; I want you to concentrate about the two special trees in God’s Garden of Eden. The two trees were the tree of life and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Man was warned not to eat fruit from the tree of knowledge, for if he should, he would certainly die.
My dear friend know you not that in each of our lives’ we all have the same two trees, and we all have to choose the fruit of which tree will we take. We witness every day by the events experienced, those that are eating the fruit of the wrong tree, even ourselves whenever we stumble, and then attempt to take control of the reins of our life, we will partake of life in ignorance not having the true knowledge of life, and not relinquishing our selfness, and trusting our Lord God to guide and provide. However, because of the great goodness of God toward man by His Grace made with us a new covenant signed in the blood of Jesus with forgiveness. Before you or anyone can find the peace and rest in God, it is necessary they first comprehend with understanding the true knowledge of God and Jesus. God has made it so clear to the entire world, that all that desire acceptance unto Him, first we must gain that true knowledge. In Hosea 4:6, He informs us that all those that don’t will be destroyed. Yet for you, my dear friend, I deplore you not to give up, or give in to temptations this world offers, or be distracted from Jesus as was Peter when walking on water, for the reward is we become overcomers in Christ Jesus, and the joy we experience each day is so great I can’t find words to describe it.
Remember, eat the forbidden fruit and die, or seek the fruit from the tree of life which is gaining true knowledge of our Lord God and live.

This day vow to God you will accept His gift of life, and seek to live in consonance with His will.
A young girl and man stand before an altar in the presence of God, family and friends, and Pledge their love one for the other. These are commonly referred to as “wedding vows”, and they constitute a total commitment. The intended result is to bringing them together becoming “one flesh” in the eyes of God. Their “promise” is to love, honor and cherish one another through the experiences of life including all good or bad report. Even though death someday might separate them, God promises through all life’s series of events including trials and tribulations, He from their side would never part, and by His Grace they should multiply by having children and teach them in the ways of the Lord.
God never intended that married couples were to raise dogs, cats and parakeets only, but to have a family, and to take dominion over all things and situations thus subduing all evil in this earth’s entire domain.
It is very unfortunate that so many do not realize, or take heed in just what they have committed. The word “Commitment” seems to have very little relevance or no value what so ever in today's world events and morals.
God's answer some two thousand years ago was manifest when an unknown innocent unsullied Virgin gave birth to a boy child. She had willingly and passionately relinquished any and all mastery of self by submitting her body and emotions to the will of God, even though she was betrothed to be married, and by the overshadowing power of His Holy Spirit, conceived and birthed the boy JESUS. She married Joseph before birthing Jesus. Joseph so honored Mary and her commitment the scriptures tell us that he never knew her until after the birth of Jesus. Here we learn of the commitment of Joseph to honor his wedding vow. Together they raised this child through infancy, and adolescence to manhood. It was at the time of his bar mitzvah, He, JESUS began seriously to do His Fathers "business”.
It seems so difficult to realize that JESUS (God in the flesh) was born of woman and having all the emotions, feelings and the same “free will” (freedom of choice) as you and I. Remember that the scripture describes when John the Baptist did baptize JESUS in water; the Spirit of God in the form of man was visually seen descending upon Him “like a dove”. God was then heard to say, “this is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased”. Our Heavenly Father incarnated by baptizing himself into the flesh body of Jesus to abide with Him until it pleased the Father that Jesus did take upon himself total sin, (all the corruption of sin) and through His death on the cross take it all into the abode, of Satan, which is hell and there He, dumping it in his lap and then wrestling away from him the keys of death and hell in order that we might gain total redemption from having such a deserved sinful fate.
It is in the 17th chapter of the Gospel penned by the apostle John, we read about the true Lord’s Prayer. JESUS clearly states that He is one in the FATHER and the FATHER is one in Him. Realize that Jesus did nothing by himself, but all that He accomplished, or said was done by the Spirit of the Father, the Holly Spirit within Him.
Remember, Jesus is God encased in human flesh. He at the time of His earthly ministry was as we are today, spirit soul and body with blood flowing through His veins, and being like us, man could relate to him and He would be able to meaningfully relate his message to man. In Matthew chapter 26, verses 32 through 44, JESUS showed feelings of mortal man. Praying and asking His Father not only once, but three times, that if there was any other way to pay the ransom or atone for all worldly sin, and to provide for all humanity a way to receive the gift of eternal life, make it possible. He asked to have the “cup” from which He had committed to drink be taken away if there was any other way. However, after many hours during which He confessed "the Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak" He said, “Not my will but yours be done”, thus finally committing to fulfill his committed mission. His mission not only to pay ransom for sin, but to regain from Satan the blessing God had spoken into existence through the power of His spoken word to Adam, and that he, Satan had stolen, thus fulfilling the scripture of Revelation chapter 12, verse 10, “Now is come salvation”.
Comprehend if you can the enormity of love, compassion, courage and dedication to willingly allow yourself to be put through all the scourging torture and crucifixion that our Lord Jesus did, or that a Father would stand by and allow to happen to His Beloved. It is most difficult to comprehend, but GOD could not, and will not co-exist with sin, therefore for the moment in time Jesus was alone, but he had not succumbed to the devil’s temptations to influence the son of man to violate his commitment. Jesus died on that cross in order to atone for all worldly sin, past, present, and future, and to restore the broken bond between God and His created man.
Reviewing the sanctity of any vow including the wedding vow, the seriousness of committing to a set of conditions, the wedding vow is more than just legality. It is a binding covenant between Man and Woman and God to fulfill His desire for His created male and female man as they become one flesh. To manifest His total purpose; first a Child was born as a gift from God, and then He, God's only begot Son was given that the saved children of God will have an everlasting inheritance.
The faithful and anointed apostle Peter wrote in his first epistle in chapter one: We should continually bless, and give all praise to our heavenly father, the father of our lord Jesus Christ, for it is by His abundant grace, and great mercy that we have been Spirit born, born again from above by God’s Holy Spirit, because He had raised our Jesus from the dead. It is because of this we can now live with great expectation, a lively hope that we have a priceless inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and will never; I say again it will never fade away. This exceedingly great and wondrous prize is the hope of all Glory, which should be every ones goal with purpose for our earthly life. Yet in Romans chapter 12 verse 1 we learn: to attain joy throughout this live, we are instructed as a reasonable service holy and acceptable unto God, to present our bodies of carnality as a living sacrefice. For by His loving mercies this glorious reward is kept in heaven, pure and without any corruption to be given all God’s children at the end of this age and the beginning of eternity, and when we make it we can declare, we are home at last.

The Holy Spirit

In 2 Timothy 3:16 God tells me that all scripture is inspired by Him, and is useful for defining what is truth and to teach, or inform us what is wrong and can be corrected in order to please Him and for us to have a harmonious life style while we are earthbound. I write this with a heavy heart for the multitude of hurting souls, but I am not able by my own sufficiency to change what is amiss in your life, if there is anything that is amiss. I thank God for providing to us the most wonderful gift second only to the personage of Jesus, His Holy Spirit.

Dear family and friends:

I desire most sincerely that our oneness of fellowship
survives at the least until the rapture, and I pray you realize the value and importance of this message, for God by His Spirit called my attention to this matter He has addressed in His word of instructions, and in order for us to gain the quality of life He desires, for us we must learn and apply them continually to master any unstable situation. We don’t have to do it alone; the Spirit of Jesus that was planted in us at the time of our being born again is our strength. I write this for your own edification, and because I am familiar with your seemingly impossible task to overcome the evil in this world.

First know that the Holy Spirit is a person, not a mere or insignificant power or influence in this heavenly realm wherein we exist, and He can be saddened by our behavior. Whenever you, or I, or any of God's people, harbor bitterness in our hearts even for a moment, and then let emotions express careless or malicious words, then we are grieving the Holy Spirit of God, and at the same time developing a stumbling block for the messenger with God’s Grace to help us with our labors to overcome the carnality of this world, and manifest a meaningful relationship with God and our neighbor with whom we must co-inhabit this world until all evil is destroyed and completely annihilated.

Wanting to be your friend, I have witnessed too often the grieving of the Holy Spirit...It behooves us not to grieve the Holy Spirit of God. To ever realize the fullness of joy during our earthly journey, we must learn not to quench the mission purpose of God’s Holy Spirit. Please read the following:
(Acts 7:51; Ephesians 4:30; 1 Thessalonians 5:19-22)
Note: I like the new living bible interpretation.
It is the will of God that we walk in daily dependence upon His Holy Spirit that will lead us through every situation. It is God's desire that every child of His will seek Him for the fullness of the Spirit's work in, and throughout all our life. However, reiterating there are three wrong responses that undermine the will of God in our life, and they are resisting, grieving, and quenching the Spirit of the Lord. Believe it or not because it is too common a habit that becomes manifest in each of our lives, and I write this to you because I know the real you, the hidden man in your heart, and I know the love of God toward you has always been consistently faithful. Yet, often we give the kind of attitude that opposes the work of the Spirit. I do not judge anyone but myself, but I try only to observe behavioral impressions that people, family and friends glean from us, and it is so important a thing in this world today that we not exhibit a sort of calloused stubbornness and a self-willed righteousness that might transform us from what God has ordained for us to become to that which transformed His anointed covering angel into Satan. At the same time the Holy Spirit knows your will is not the will of God. A description of many earthbound souls today is that they are spiritually illiterate and uncircumcised in heart and ears as it has been for centuries. They have not allowed God to cut away the carnality of their inner flesh being, and thus coming in unison with Grace of God and the love of our Lord, Jesus. Unfortunately they do not hear God when He speaks to them through His anointed messengers. They seem to be self-righteous and self-sufficient, and when we conduct ourselves in this same manner, and we do, then we also are resisting the Holy Spirit. The word of God’s instructions says: Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from us, with all malice" (Ephesians 4:31). Yes, the Holy Spirit is a person, not a mere power or influence. He can be saddened by our behavior. When we, God's people, harbor bitterness in our hearts, and careless or malicious words in our mouths, then we "grieve the Holy Spirit of God by heeding more the deceitful influence of Satan than of the word of God. It is difficult for this imperfect man to rightly divide the word of truth so as to apply it fully in his life.

We must realize, times of hardness are inevitable. We need to know that. It's true that we've been redeemed from the curse, and there's nothing Satan can do to reverse that, but he is going to challenge all of us on it. So don't be surprised when things get tough. Times will come when we have to stand strictly by faith, when we will have to speak and act as though what God says is true even when we can't feel it or see it happening around us. There will be times when everything may look terrible. That's when we must endure hardness as good soldiers. So many people hear the word of faith about healing or prosperity and they think, "Hey! I'm going to try that." Then when the hard times come, they give up and cave in. Allow me to warn you, living by faith is not something you try. It's a lifestyle. We do it when it's hard. We must do it when it's easy. We must do it all the time because we are not doing it just to get in on the benefits. We must do it because we know that faith pleases God. (Heb. 11:6). Things may get a little rough at times, but let me assure all of you; we will always come out on top if we endure hardness as a good soldier. If we only refuse to faint and fall away, we will have the victory. The only defeated Christian is the one who quits!

"For who has known or understood the mind(the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct [Him] and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ, the Messiah, and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart."(1 Corinthians 2:16)
Dear Children, and friendsIsn't it exciting to realize that you can hold the thoughts and feelings and purposes of God's very own heart in your heart? Isn't it thrilling to know the Creator of heaven and earth wants to be one spirit with you and transmit His thoughts to your mind? For true divine wisdom enters your heart by God’s revelation, and knowledge fills you with joy, and understanding that will guide you safely throughout life. Keep and guard your heart being very diligent for out of your heart comes all the issues pertaining to your life.
Proverbs 2:2 and in 4:23 Then First Corinthians 6:17 says that when you were joined to the Lord you became one spirit with Him. He came into union with you unilaterally to re-establish the lost fellowship He originally established with His created man so that He can talk to you heart to heart. God wants you in this harmony with Him so that His thoughts can become your actions. He wants you to walk so closely with Him that you never lack power to overcome the evil of this world. He wants you to be so in tune with His Spirit that you are able to feel His grace with compassion toward those around you who are hurting or bowed down with sickness and pain. He wants to be one with you, so He can reach out through your heart and hands and fulfill His purposes and His will for every person who receives His grace in all the earth. Make a fresh commitment today to walk in union with your God. Give your attention to His Spirit in your inner self. Determine to yield to His voice and not to the voices of the world or the flesh! Allow the mind of Christ to flow through you! And let not any temporary situation cause any stress or bind you negating what Jesus said, “whatever I have done you will also do but even more”. I say to you do not allow any thought that does not edify you, your family or your life with the life Jesus promised you abundantly.

As the senior member of this family I take authority and pass on to you God’s blessing. WHAT IS THE BLESSIN? I have been told It is the releasing the supernatural powers of God into the life of another person’ s by the spiritual authority of the spoken word of God. It is not conveyed by thinking it but requires the spoken word in order the Blessing be transferred.

My Journal continued part 2

After spending three years in a independent and assisted living facility in Decatur Alabama with the name “Cedar Springs, I transferred my residence to a like facility in Monrovia California, returning to whence I came, and have just completed one year here at, The Gables. I have become more aware of God’s unbounded grace and love. God never fails to amaze me as he reveals the mysteries of life and how ignorant of them I have been about his truths for so long. It took 86 of my 90 years and many encounters with our adversary before I prioritized Him to be the number one purpose for living, and He took over all my failures and opened my heart to receive His unbridled grace.
The Gables is only one of 565 different communities’ within the, Brookdale Senior Living establishments. There are 53,600 residents cared for by 38,000 caring, and dedicated employees. The motto of these particular establishments is, “Enriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity.”
It is a traumatic experience for anyone giving-up the life style we cultivate over our maturing years and move to live among total strangers, but I come to realize there are many priceless reasons that support such a move. I can list a few and they are:
· The peace of mind assuring your life style will retains self dignity during your waning years.
· The assurance for your loved ones that you are safe and well taken care of.
· You are not an unwanted burden that could unintentionally result in discord among your precious loved ones.
· Adopting a new family of co-residence finding additional friends with many social activities is very stimulating and healthy.
· You no longer have to strive to maintain a home, do housework, cooking, shopping for other than self personal needs, and then if required help is offered.

This establishment is neither a hospital facility, nor a charitable organization, but is a free enterprise company and one that offers a priceless service for so many. It is an American company that is attributing to the economic well being of our country, they select and train their employees to have compassion with patients’ needed to provide the service to so many different behavior’s associated with the various maladies affecting the residence of each establishment, whether physical, or mental or both. One thing is common, that is we all are dependant and should not live alone.
I have found it very challenging spiritually for the need is great to portray and emulate the love of our Father for each and every one of these residence, but just how. I have to trust my Lord, and should He call on me I know He will provide in me His efficiency. Yet it is well to consider what God says Romans 12 verse 3, “Think not too highly of yourself”.
This journal will be continued as events dictate and if the Lord tarries. In the meantime recognize your blessing if you are a resident of such a home as I have described.
