Prayers please

I’m on my way to give birth to my baby girl named Arielle which means Lion of God. Please pray for a safe delivery for us. :)

Anonymous asked: My husband cheated on me and is unrepentant. I would love to forgive him but he does not want to talk about my feelings, which hurts me. What do I do?

Does he want to work it out? The Bible says that there are only two situations where God condones divorce and that’s when the spouse cheats or abandons the person.  If he doesn’t want to work it out, there’s not much you can do. Let’s lift him up in prayer that he have a repentant heart and that he feels convicted by Jesus for what he put you through and that he feels sympathy for what he did and sensitivity to your feelings.  In Jesus name, we agree. Amen. 

If he refuses to repent and doesn’t want to change or wants to leave you, you can’t force him to stay no matter how much your heart feels like it’s breaking.  YOU DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG.  Jesus loves you so much that it can’t even be measured.  Praying for you! 

Anonymous asked: Do you think it's wrong to read the saga The Hunger Games?

No. There’s nothing satanic in the book. It’s about a time in the world that could possibly happen when people turn their backs on God and start living in a very communist and socialist society with insanely rich vs. extremely poor. 

Anonymous asked: how do i truly forgive someone i know has repeatedly hurt me intentionally ?

You can forgive someone that has repeatedly hurt you intentionally by trusting in Jesus and giving it all to Him. Forgiveness, however, does not mean you have to continually allow this person who harms and hurts you to victimize you and treat you terribly. You can forgive them and move on and cut the person out of your life. Give it to Jesus. 

"Forgive and forget" is kind of a tricky phrase. Many people think that to "forgive and forget" means we have to selectively delete the offense from our memories and pretend it didn’t happen. Obviously, that’s an impossibility, because our brains aren’t hard drives or gig sticks we can just wipe clean, and pretending is just that—pretending.

The Bible doesn’t use the phrase “forgive and forget,” but the implied concept is one of continual forgiveness without holding grudges. That is, when you forgive someone, it’s like you’re giving them a clean slate. Why should we give anyone a clean slate? Because God does. He pardons our sins and overlooks everything we do against Him so that we can gain an eternal inheritance. “He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in steadfast love.” (Micah 7:18)

Follow Jesus’ Example

God forgives our sins constantly, so why shouldn’t we do the same? If a friend has hurt me, and I have granted her forgiveness, I can no longer hold the offenses against her. Even though I remember the issue that was so hurtful, I remember it with no weight, no pressure to hang on to it. I try to let it go and move on with life. Yes, it’s hard to do. We really like to bring up old stuff sometimes because that can cause the biggest sting. But bringing up past pain is never helpful to a friendship.

When the disciple Peter asked Jesus, “Lord, how often am I to forgive my brother when he sins against me? Seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy times seven.” (Matthew 18:22) He’s not saying that we keep a tally of times we forgive and stop after 490. In Jesus’ time, saying “seventy times seven” implied a number that can’t be counted. Like when you say, “I’ve told you a million times!” You don’t mean it literally, but perhaps you mean that you’ve said it more times than you can count.

We should not keep track of how many times we are wronged or how many times we have forgiven someone who has offended us. Forgiveness is godly, and a forgiving heart overlooks offenses. If God can forgive us every day when He could easily strike us down for sinning against Him, how much more should we forgive others and not dish out constant punishment?

How NOT to Forget

Giving a person a clean slate is not the same as merely covering up an offense and pretending it’ll get better on its own. As I said earlier, it’s not like we can just hit “delete” on memories—especially painful ones. Change only happens in your heart when you make the decision not to hold a grudge. Grudges will only end up hurting both of you.

One night, my boyfriend and I were goofing off with our church group in the gym when he took me aside to talk to me. Before I knew it, he had left without a real explanation as to why, leaving me with people I didn’t really know that well. When he didn’t return for the whole night, I became miserable that he had abandoned me and didn’t tell me why he was leaving. I could barely return to socializing with the others.

I moped for the rest of the festivities. When I got home, my boyfriend was waiting for me outside and apologized. Even though I was hurt and confused, I told him that I forgave him, but I didn’t really mean it. I tried to slap on an amnesia Band-Aid in hopes that it would just go away.

Soon, the black mark on my heart was visible again. The amnesia Band-Aid was insufficient for this gaping wound that had developed as I stewed over all the times he had hurt me. Sharp memories bled through until I flinched from flashbacks or balked at suggestions of another game night. I shut out my friends when they asked what was wrong, then convinced myself that they’d deserted me.

Finding True Healing

Real healing can only come with true openness to release the person who has wronged us. We must throw out all vengeful feelings and bitterness, allowing our hearts to soften toward them with honest forgiveness. In doing so, we become free to love others fully and reap heavenly rewards (Ephesians 4:322 John 1:8).

It hurts to make an attempt at incomplete forgiveness. Trust me, I know. It seems silly now, and I realize it took far too long, but in the end, I did forgive my boyfriend for leaving me that night. The memories are still there and still hurt, but I don’t hold it against him anymore.

Ephesians 4:32 says, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” God wants all His children to forgive each other, just as He has forgiven us through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. He treats us as though we never sinned at all and doesn’t hold our sins against us. So, in a sense, He “forgives and forgets.”

In the same way, to truly forgive someone, we need to act as though they never hurt us in the first place. Yes, we still remember the offense, and yes, we can learn from it, but to truly forgive, we treat the person as though it never happened.

Anonymous asked: I think im gay..Ive felt like this for most of my life but Ive never really accepted it and probably never will. It makes me think whether homosexuality is given to me as a curse by God or maybe there's a reason why I'm like this? I just feel stuck at this point, I don't know what to do. I am very hopeful and willing to change, but I jst dont know where to start, nor what to do. It would be really helpful if I could be guided to God's path.

God doesn’t curse anyone nor does he tempt anyone. He doesn’t inflict sin on people at all. Regardless of the cause of it, whether it be temptation, over-saturation of media that influences many young people to believe they’re gay, friend/family influences, etc., however you feel you were born, you have to be born again in Jesus. I’m born with a predisposition to addiction and I gave into it before I found Jesus. When I became born again, asked Jesus into my heart as my Savior, asked Him to forgive my sins because He is God, I repented from my past ways and predispositions. I don’t do drugs or drink at all.  Do I feel tempted to now and then? Sometimes…not so bad anymore.. but it’s not God that tempts me, it’s the devil.  I know men who have a predisposition to cheating of their wives. Their fathers and grandfathers and great grandfathers all did it. Does that mean that the man can’t help himself and has no choice but to cheat? However tempted he may be to do so, he must fight it and be faithful to his wife and the vows they took before God.  All sin is equal in the eyes of the Lord. As people born sinners because of what Adam and Eve did, we all have to fight our sin nature every single day. The devil hates us humans. He hates us because we were created in God’s image and he wasn’t. He hates us because we were given the opportunity to be forgiven through Jesus Christ and he wasn’t.  Don’t forget that the devil hates us and is in this world with the sole purpose of tempting us and leading us away from God.  Ephesians 6:12 says “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”.  Fighting against sin, against evil, against genetic predispositions and the temptations that satan puts before us every single day is not an easy battle but with faithfulness and JESUS, we can win that battle.  

Don’t lose hope, go to Jesus, read your Bible and turn to Him. Don’t worry about having any romantic relationships with anyone right now. Work on building your relationship with Jesus Christ. You are not alone. There are many going through what you went through.

Why Does God Allow Evil? (Got Questions Question of the Week)(QOTW)

Question: “Why does God allow evil?”

Answer:
The Bible describes God as holy (Isaiah 6:3), righteous (Psalm 7:11), just (Deuteronomy 32:4), and sovereign (Daniel 4:17-25). These attributes tell us the following about God: (1) God is capable of preventing evil, and (2) God desires to rid the universe of evil. So, if both of these are true, why does God allow evil? If God has the power to prevent evil and desires to prevent evil, why does He still allow evil? Perhaps a practical way to look at this question would be to consider some alternative ways people might have God run the world:

1) God could change everyone’s personality so that they cannot sin. This would also mean that we would not have a free will. We would not be able to choose right or wrong because we would be “programmed” to only do right. Had God chosen to do this, there would be no meaningful relationships between Him and His creation.

Instead, God made Adam and Eve innocent but with the ability to choose good or evil. Because of this, they could respond to His love and trust Him or choose to disobey. They chose to disobey. Because we live in a real world where we can choose our actions but not their consequences, their sin affected those who came after them (us). Similarly, our decisions to sin have an impact on us and those around us and those who will come after us.

2) God could compensate for people’s evil actions through supernatural intervention 100 percent of the time. God would stop a drunk driver from causing an automobile accident. God would stop a lazy construction worker from doing a substandard job on a house that would later cause grief to the homeowners. God would stop a father who is addicted to drugs or alcohol from doing any harm to his wife, children, or extended family. God would stop gunmen from robbing convenience stores. God would stop high school bullies from tormenting the brainy kids. God would stop thieves from shoplifting. And, yes, God would stop terrorists from flying airplanes into buildings.

While this solution sounds attractive, it would lose its attractiveness as soon as God’s intervention infringed on something we wanted to do. We want God to prevent horribly evil actions, but we are willing to let “lesser-evil” actions slide—not realizing that those “lesser-evil” actions are what usually lead to the “greater-evil” actions. Should God only stop actual sexual affairs, or should He also block our access to pornography or end any inappropriate, but not yet sexual, relationships? Should God stop “true” thieves, or should He also stop us from cheating on our taxes? Should God only stop murder, or should He also stop the “lesser-evil” actions done to people that lead them to commit murder? Should God only stop acts of terrorism, or should He also stop the indoctrination that transformed a person into a terrorist?

3) Another choice would be for God to judge and remove those who choose to commit evil acts. The problem with this possibility is that there would be no one left, for God would have to remove us all. We all sin and commit evil acts (Romans 3:23;Ecclesiastes 7:20;1 John 1:8). While some people are more evil than others, where would God draw the line? Ultimately, all evil causes harm to others.

Instead of these options, God has chosen to create a “real” world in which real choices have real consequences. In this real world of ours, our actions affect others. Because of Adam’s choice to sin, the world now lives under the curse, and we are all born with a sin nature (Romans 5:12). There will one day come a time when God will judge the sin in this world and make all things new, but He is purposely “delaying” in order to allow more time for people to repent so that He will not need to condemn them (2 Peter 3:9). Until then, HeISconcerned about evil. When He created the Old Testament laws, the goal was to discourage and punish evil. He judges nations and rulers who disregard justice and pursue evil. Likewise, in the New Testament, God states that it is the government’s responsibility to provide justice in order to protect the innocent from evil (Romans 13). He also promises severe consequences for those who commit evil acts, especially against the “innocent” (Mark 9:36-42).

In summary, we live in a real world where our good and evil actions have direct consequences and indirect consequences upon us and those around us. God’s desire is that for all of our sakes we would obey Him that it might be well with us (Deuteronomy 5:29). Instead, what happens is that we choose our own way, and then we blame God for not doing anything about it. Such is the heart of sinful man. But Jesus came to change men’s hearts through the power of the Holy Spirit, and He does this for those who will turn from evil and call on Him to save them from their sin and its consequences (2 Corinthians 5:17). God does prevent and restrain some acts of evil. This world would beMUCH WORSEwere not God restraining evil. At the same time, God has given us the ability to choose good and evil, and when we choose evil, He allows us, and those around us, to suffer the consequences of evil. Rather than blaming God and questioning God on why He does not prevent all evil, we should be about the business of proclaiming the cure for evil and its consequences—Jesus Christ!

Anonymous asked: I'm really scared of death and if there's a life after death, Am I gonna be with my family in heaven? (if we're "accepted")

If you and your family are Christian (you asked Jesus into your heart, asked for forgiveness for your sins and turned away from those sins), YES you will be together in heaven whether you die or whether we’re raptured first.  God knows your heart and intentions. If you ask for forgiveness and don’t mean it and keep living how you want, He will say “I never knew you” when you come before Him in judgement. Read your Bible, stay close to Him, live by His Word, Will and Way :) 

Anonymous asked: Are all artists part of the illuminati going to be in hell? some of them claim to be christian, were seen at the church many times and seems really religious etc.. but in their music video, there are few illuminati signs... so what is this? could they still be christian and be illuminati at the same time.

God knows their hearts. A person can claim to be anything they want, it doesn’t make it true. God knows what their truth is, what their intentions are.  You can’t make compromises with your faith as a Christian. Matthew 7 says you will know a Christian by their fruit.  Let’s say a person claims to be a vegetarian and they act like it in front of their friends and eat only veggies and non animal products around friends but go home and stuff their face with a hamburger, they’re not really a vegetarian, they’re just posing as one. Sadly there are a lot of inauthentic people who claim to be Christian but don’t live by God’s Word, Will and Way as the Bible lays out for us.  You can’t be Christian and illuminati at the same time. To be in the illuminati you align with them, do their bidding and get the money and fame that comes with it. It’s the love of money that leads to such things and pride-fullness. 1 Timothy 6 says the LOVE of money is the root of all evil. Anyone in the industry that is part of the illuminati has one goal: FAME/FORTUNE.  As a Christian our goal should be to live for Jesus and to share His love with the world and to stay close to Him.  Matthew 6:24 says you can’t serve two masters. Simple as that.  A true Christian wouldn’t be putting themselves in a position to have to compromise their faith. 

Anonymous asked: Referring back to a previous question about vows: Should we refrain from making any kind of vows (y/n)? More specifically, what about wedding vows?

I already answered this question. No vow or promise should be made if you don’t intend to keep it. Wedding vows, till death do us part means you are promising to be with this person no matter how horrible things may get until death… granted if you get cheated on or abandoned, God will allow you to divorce but you don’t plan for divorce, you take the vows knowing you intend to be in it until you die. 

Here’s my previous answer:  

They are the same.  There are about 30 biblical references to vows, most of which are from the Old Testament. The books of Leviticus and Numbers have several references to vows in relation to offerings and sacrifices. There were dire consequences for the Israelites who made and broke vows, especially vows to God. 


The story of Jephthah illustrates the foolishness of making vows without understanding the consequences. Before leading the Israelites into battle against the Ammonites, Jephthah—described as a mighty man of valor—made a rash vow that he would give to the Lord whoever first came out of doors to meet him if he returned home as the victor. When the Lord granted him victory, the one who came out to meet him was his daughter. Jephthah remembered his vow and offered her to the Lord (Judges 11:29-40). Whether or not Jephthah should have kept this vow is dealt with in another article. What this account shows us is the foolishness of rash vows. 

Perhaps this is why Jesus gave a new commandment concerning vows. “Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but keep the oaths you have made to the Lord.’ But I tell you, Do not swear at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No ,’ ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one” (Matthew 5:33-37).

The principle here is clear for Christians: do not make vows, either to the Lord or to one another. First, we are unable to know for sure whether we will be able to keep vows. The fact that we are prone to the errors in judgment which are part of our fallen nature means that we may make vows foolishly or out of immaturity. Further, we don’t know what the future will bring—only God does. We don’t know what will happen tomorrow (James 4:14), so to make a vow that we will do or not do something is foolish. God is the one in control, not us, and He “works all things together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28). Knowing this, we can see that it is unnecessary to make vows and that it indicates a lack of trust in Him. Finally, Jesus commands that our word be sufficient without making vows. When we say “yes” or “no,” that’s exactly what we should mean. Adding vows or oaths to our words opens us up to the influence of Satan whose desire is to trap us and compromise our Christian testimony.

If we have made a vow foolishly and realized we cannot or should not keep it, we should confess it to God, knowing that He is “faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” A broken vow, while serious, is not an unforgivable matter if taken to the Lord in true confession. God will not hold us to vows made imprudently, but He expects us to obey Jesus and refrain from making vows in the future.

The truth is not always an easy pill to swallow. Sometimes admitting the truth means abandoning all of the jaded ways you've become accustomed to.

'Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by me.' - John 14:6

My objective is to not only spread God's word and Good News but to help expose the evils of the world.
