A Common Sense Approach to the Bible "Bringing Heaven down to earth one rung at a time."

Check List for your Heart

Forgiveness. If you cannot first forgive yourself, then you cannot truly forgive others (Do not just forgive but forget).

Trust God. It is a relational building process as you grow (which will take time) to understand God "one rung at a time" walking through your life and circumstances. Everyone's is different.

Respect the process of God. After accepting Christ, life is not what you are doing through God; it is what He is trying to accomplish through you so your purpose can be realized. Remember: He is God, and you are not. Step down off the throne.

Learn to love yourself. If you do not love yourself, then why do you think that others will love you? Being downtrodden within your own mind can cause defeatism in your life facets, which trickles down to those around you, especially children.

"Clean hands" before God. If you have ought against any man, go to the source and tell him/her and repent of it. Your heart before the Lord needs a daily cleansing.

Attitude is crucial.

Words you speak. The enemy will use your own words against you.

Do not point fingers.

Do not ever run from confrontation. Put your big pants on and face it. If God is with you, you have nothing to fear.

Be congruent.

Be consistent.

Have "bulldog" faith. Grab God with your teeth and never let go.

Stop focusing on others, what they have, what they are doing, and where they are going, and stay focused on yourself and what God is trying to do through you. Angst will stop.

Thank God continually.

Psalm 37

My Ten Cents Worth.

Today's post is an interactive one. You have to do your part by reading Psalm 37. I was given this specific Psalm by the Holy Spirit yesterday morning in prayer. One important (concrete) factor I have learned with God over the past twenty-three years: If I do my part, God always does His part. Now, to be clear, God is not Santa Claus or sits in heaven ready to loose a new home, car or give you a "100 fold return" on an offering that you provide for His work. But in His divine nature, He does hear the faithful, earnest cries (prayers) of His children and, due to this nature, responds in some manner. Like you, I have been miffed over the past week's events, no matter how one looks at it.

My emotions, most of my life, were either high or low. I was always too quick to jump to conclusions. I learned to incorporate the 24-hour patch test with the Holy Spirit to help my roller coaster ride. I color my hair, and the store-bought boxes tell you to try a test patch to see if the color is compatible with your skin type. The instructions tell you to wait for 24-hours, after the test, before fully processing. Now, for someone who always knew best, I didn't have time to wait. Twenty-four hours? No way! I jumped and did everything my way, no matter what or who my speech or actions affected. It was a frustrating way to function. It never got me anywhere positive, and I always felt frustrated and angry. After I began to learn about God and His ways, I (step by step) learned to get my flesh under the control of my spirit-man and what a difference the 24-hour patch test made in my reactions.

My question for those who say they follow Christ is: Where is your mercy? And where is your grace?

With life events and the circus that took place this past week, I went to the Lord with my heart in turmoil. Once again, I knew the 24-hour patch test had to be incorporated. I also did my research, and in the times we live in, why aren't we doing more of our own research before jumping? The hatred and spewing of vile comments and "hang him" lynch mob was uncalled for. Within 24 hours, the truth began to spill out. Antifa and BLM were embedded in the crowds that came to Washington to stand for truth, justice, and righteousness. Did anyone happen to see the children with parents? They believed they were doing the right thing to stand for their country. One (or a cluster) of bad apples seem to always ruin the bunch.

Beginning the last week in January 2021, I will start to teach (The forum now is uncertain, but I will be visible somewhere!) in a "simple and clear" way the truths of our God, based on what He says, not what CNN, FOX (so disappointed in them), MSNBC, and other news outlets say. Yes, one must stay informed to be useful, but if one bases their worldview only on what secular outlets tout, we will continue to be outraged. Our spirits will never mature into the things God has prepared for us since the beginning of time. It is a maturation that is coming in the body this year, specifically that we might rise and defeat the enemies of God.

But for today, take heart and read Psalm 37 this morning. Allow it to give you a greater understanding of the nature of our Father in heaven and bring solace to your soul.

Love,

Molly

"Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country."

The above statement seems apropos for the time we live in. It is a very cool statement and one that I thought I recalled was made by Patrick Henry. This phrase was dropped into my spirit this past week, and I knew that something would come of it. Yesterday, I Googled the phrase (Thank God for Google for its information only!) and discovered that the exact saying that Patrick Henry uttered was, "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their party." The former (the first one) was proposed by Charles E. Weller for a typing course. It was a rich one-liner having seventy (70) exact characters making it easy to remember and type over and over and over. Yes, I remember learning to type in High School! But the phrase itself is poignant (deeply affecting) for the times in which we all live.

Ephesians (I fondly named this the warfare book over twenty years ago) 6:10-12 (NIV) "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." Lots of unknown entities by most accounts for many.

The Bible teaches that "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" (Hosea 4:6). I hold responsible for America's current condition, a nation of pulpits for not preaching/teaching that Satan was real, ready, willing, and able to destroy us all (John 10:10). He comes through various means and ways of deception, physical destruction, and spiritual lack. He has manipulated this country (in my generation) from the early sixties and is showing himself today (peacocking around) in full bloom.

However, these heinous deceptors have finally caused those who walk with Christ to rise, fight, and come to “the aid of their country.” The 2020 Presidential Election was stolen. The concrete evidence will be outlined on Jan. 6, 2021, when the new session of Congress meets.

But we serve a faithful God, and He has had his remnant fasting, praying, offering of themselves to the point of weariness, and standing against this demonic onslaught. Yes, there are so-called, and I use this term very loosely— prophets (be careful of those who call themselves such) proclaiming "A Word" from God. No one but God knows what the outcome of Wednesday will be. No one. There are signs and confirmations but be wary.

The Gospel we have today, passed down to us from generation to generation, which can grant us an overcoming victory, piece by piece, and step by step, is not a FLUFFY Gospel. It is not a “feel-good” or “name-it and claim-it” work. I wonder what Paul, John, Peter (who was crucified upside down because he didn't feel worthy to die as our Lord!) must be thinking. And Moses, Elijah, Isaiah, and Jerimiah. A sobering thought.

Our prayer, as faithful followers of Christ, should be that "Thy Kingdom come and thy will be done." And, of course, take authority over Satan and his hold on Republican and Democratic hearts. For our nation to survive this onslaught, we must all come to our country's aid in some fashion.

God save us,

Molly
