The Cat and Mouse Game

Let’s talk about death.
We might as well. It’s inevitable.
Hebrews 9:(NKJV)
27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, source

A two-mile walk is good for spiritual conversation. I took such a walk today and death came up. Actually, I brought it up praying for people who have Covid. 
Death is something satan enjoys.
He actually has plans to kill us all and the more painful the better from his point of view. I imagine he stays up at night figuring ways to murder and torture people to death. That’s his job and he is good at it. Relishes it even I imagine. 

Is it any wonder that 56 MILLION people die each year?
That is according to the website linked just above 1.80 people die EVERY SECOND.
That’s a whole lot of dying. 
So, shouldn’t we talk about it?

From my walking conversation, I have settled in with certain thoughts. 
Every day that we are not mutilated and killed in this evil world with rampant godlessness is a miracle. It is an Act of GOD that you and I are still breathing. 
Just this week a dear and lovely Brother in Christ died. The Father could have kept him here longer, but He didn’t. This time the Father allowed this dear one’s breath to escape and not return to him.

EACH Christian dies when GOD says, ‘You can come home this time’. No doubt on many, many occasions the evil one had desired and planned to kill him and each time GOD said NO. Why did GOD say okay this time? I don’t know. 
This is what I hope for myself. I hope as soon as I have done all the Kingdom work I can do, I immediately get the call to come home
You see I think that GOD is not obligated to keep lost people alive.
I think He is not obligated to stop the evil one from killing them BUT I BELIEVE HE OFTEN DOES. 

Further, I believe that satan can try but until my Father GOD is ready for me to leave this planet nothing satan can do to me will take me out.
I’m not saying there will be no damage or pain or sickness or disease but I am saying until My Father agrees I’m not leaving here.
I believe this for all my brothers and sisters in the Faith too. 

I believe we are protected from all eternal harm; obviously, not all temporary pain but all eternal harm. 
That’s not true for people who have said “no thank you” to the Holy Spirit’s offer of salvation. GOD is not obligated to keep satan from harming them. But testimony after testimony shows in His grace HE often does.
I wonder why. I have a theory. Do you? 

For people continuing to choose to walk their own way, ignoring GOD, ignoring the good plans He has for them, ignoring His offer of eternal life, they may discover they have been subject to the cat and mouse game.
You know how a cat plays with a mouse for as long as it’s fun or until the mouse dies from all the ‘fun’?

John 3:16 (AMP)
16 “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. source

My Phrase

It’s January 4 already!download (5)

Some of us bloggers and even non-bloggers adopt a word or phrase for each new year. 
I have a phrase this year. At least thus far this year.

I’m not participating.

That’s it. That’s my phrase for 2021.
It is my goal, my hope, my quest to participate NOT in the negative, non-productive, demoralizing, sin-filled practices of last year. 
And four days in I already need help to NOT participate.
To be in this world but NOT be a part of it.
To NOT think like the world.
To NOT be afraid like the world.
To NOT compromise like the world.
To live NOT like the world. 

It’s too much for us and that is why Yeshua prayed for us before He left for Heaven. See John 17: 9-26.
And He prays for us now.

Hebrews 7:25  (AMP) 
25 Therefore He is able also to save forever (completely, perfectly, for eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to intercede and intervene on their behalf [with God]. source

Does GOD Care?

Does GOD care about the Nation called America? 
Does He care if human liberty reigns here? 

Did GOD ever care for America? 
I can only believe He not only cared He gave favor and blessings to establish this Republic. I am confident Letters, Documents, Books, Sermons and etc. clearly indicate GOD’s purpose in establishing America.  
Inasmuch as He began us has He now abandoned us? 

Is it of no concern to GOD if murder, corruption, greed, lies, hypocrisy, fraud, robbery, and all manner of evil be unchecked among us? 
Can you imagine that GOD has turned a deaf ear to His very own children who are crying out to Him day and night to have mercy and bring justice and repentance to America? 
Did GOD give kings to Israel,  but He has no interest in Presidents in America?

In your own relationship with GOD, did He not come to meet you right where you were?
Did He say to you, you got yourself in this mess, now get yourself out? 
So, why would He make that stand with this Nation He birthed? 

There was a time when Matthew 28:19-20 was obeyed by Christian Americans more than any other people groups the world over. Do we really think GOD has forgotten that? 

Citizens of Israel supported or opposed kings as the Prophets spoke. 
Would GOD condemn us for doing the same? 

Hebrews 13:8  (NKJV) Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. source

James 1:17  (NLT) 17 Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. source

Matthew 28:19-20  (NKJV) 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. source 

Day 25

Day 25 of The Giving of Thanks

The sense of tasting.
To sit, taste, and share bread with family, friends, or even an acquaintance we want to know better; it’s a pleasure and a gift for which we give thanks. Tomorrow is a day here in America set aside to give Thanks. It’s a day to remember an event occurring centuries ago and to bring it forward. GOD is still GOD. He has not changed and for that, we can surely give THANKS. 

Hebrews 13:8  (NKJV) Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. source

James 1:17 (AMP) 17 Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of lights [the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens], in whom there is no variation [no rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [for He is perfect and never changes]. source

Here’s a video. I hope you enjoy it. 

Day 24

Day 24 of The Giving of Thanks

Hot Water.
Not the kind you get into for this or that but the free-flowing kind that washes away the grime of the day and soothes tired achy muscles – a hot shower. I have said one of the greatest blessings of living here in America is a hot shower. I am grateful for every hot shower I get to enjoy. Epson Salt baths too. 

And I am grateful for the Water of The Word. It washes the grime and soothes like nothing else. The Water of The Word is plentiful here in America. May it continue to be.

A few pics – no hot shower spigots available but I think you will enjoy these.
