Sacrifice

Today is the day we reflect on the Ultimate Sacrifice ever done for man.The Sacrifice so many say they understand or even live for.

Matthew 16:24-25 KJV

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

Many people don't realize that living for Him is a sacrifice. As He gave His life to us; we are to give our lives to Him. We are to die to our flesh and our own way of thinking and live according to His Word.

Jesus Thank you for what you were so willing to do for me! Thank you for the blood you shed for me --a sinner.

May you find comfort in knowing and truly understanding His Sacrifice.

Always the same...

You know some things just never change. People want your advice, want your direction, wisdom from the Word till the second you touch on something that hurts. Till the second you step on their toes, or make them exam their own way of thinking. Then- its not so fun any more.. then your words, are NOT so wise, or you are viewed as judgmental or condemning. I guess that is part of standing on God's Word in all situations. I guess that is part of seeing sin for sin and seeing that condemnation that comes from living in that sin without consequences or having a unrepentant heart.( Romans 2:5-6...But because of your hardness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath   for yourself in the day of wrath,   when God’s righteous judgment is revealed.  He will repay each one according to his works:)( Romans 8:5 For those who live   according to the flesh think about the things of the flesh,   but those who live   according to the Spirit, about the things of the Spirit.)   It pains me when people just misunderstand the motives of my heart, but I stand on knowing that the WORLD misunderstood Christ, unto His death. So I will take it and rely on Christ to strengthen me through HIS Word.

Romans 8: 31-39

What then are we to say about these things?  If God is for us, who is against us?  He did not even spare His own Son  but offered Him up for us all;  how will He not also with Him grant us everything? Who can bring an accusation against God’s elect?  God is the One who justifies.  Who is the one who condemns?  Christ Jesus is the One who died,  but even more, has been raised;  He also is at the right hand of God  and intercedes for us.  Who can separate us from the love of Christ? Can affliction   or anguish or persecution  or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: Because of You we are being put to death all day long;  we are counted as sheep to be slaughtered.     No, in all these things we are more than victorious  through Him who loved us.  For I am persuaded that not even death or life,  angels or rulers,  things present or things to come,   ⌊hostile⌋ powers, height or depth, or any other created thing will have the power to separate us from the love of God   that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!

..

This week has been full of many challenges but The Lord is able to see me through it. Last Saturday, Samuel went through his Eldership interview. And Sunday (which I missed because I was home with a sick little man) he was asked to be part of the greatest honor given to man and that is helping with the "sacraments" also known as communion.






The Children all went to their Father to receive communion and He(my beloved) stated he was fine till they each came to him, then changing His Words from "_Name_____,receive the blood of Christ which was shed for you" to " Son or daughter, receive the blood of Christ which was shed for you" sent him over the emotional edge. I know it was probably the most memorable moment for my Children! YES  and I missed it!!!!!

Hopefully I will have an opportunity to experience that soon.

Be blessed dear Saints.

Should we?

Lately I have been baffled by the brainwashing or conditioning we go through starting from childhood on how to think,and what to think.

We have been convinced that it is necessary to control the number of children we have. That children are a burden not a blessing. Birth control, experimenting sexually is all the process of growing up, not damaging to you spiritually, mentally or even physically  nor does anyone even tell you that you are sinning against against our Lord and Creator.

What about the conditioning towards the acceptances of sin? Conditioning on accepting homosexuals as "being born this way" in stead of being an addiction or sin just like any other sin..No more foul then being an alcoholic or addicted to pornography but it is still a sin. But it is being thrown in  our face,rammed down our throats and our children are being conditioned to accept the sin as we have been trained to accept the sin of birth control and experimental sex.

It is becoming the norm to see homosexuals together on TVs..We are truly in age of acceptance,anything goes Except for the Christian.  Let a Christian stand for righteousness or tell a homosexual he isn't interested because He believes what the Bible says about the sin, and boy would you see persecution in it's finest. What hypocrites!!!

Should we as believers in the sovereign God be on birth control? Controlling our numbers?

Should we as Christians have things like cable TVs? Or be involved in things like Facebook?

Should we be dabbling in things that the rest of world is into?

Oh I know there are those who will argue "but we must dabble in these things to reach the lost." Really? Tell me one person you brought to Christ through Facebook? Or one person who believed in the sovereignity of God because you decided the 1.5 kids was enough so could have the nice car and big house.

We(Christians) blend in so well no one knows who  we are nor what we stand for because we have added to Scripture to suit what we want in our lives and others have taken it away. Ignoring the very commands within the Word we are to live by.

Oh Lord forgive us for we are a lost and dying race! Raise up  seed strong and mighty for you. Raise up seed ready to live for you or die for righteousness!!

Let it begin with me... I will go!

Disappointment and failed expectations....

I have come to realize that I have been carrying some bitterness toward my beloved husband. He is a great man, great husband and great father but in that greatness there are still things that fail, and disappoint.

Have you ever been disappointed by someone you love? Have you had expectations of how things should be or handled?

In disappointment and expectations is the root of bitterness. What do you do when you are disappointed or an expectations has not been met? Most say nothing. Then when the next disappoint comes, you remember the first and second, with each disappointment or failed expectations you build a pyramid of bitterness. Till one day that pyramid is so big you either have to face it.

This question has come to mind...

As believers in Jesus Christ- is it right for us to have expectations of each other? (Especially if you have not verbalized those expectations)

Does the word of God say anything about this subject?



Hebrews 12


14 Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.



The only thing I can seem to find are verses that tell us that we are to fix our eyes on Christ. We are to love in all situations, and forgive if you want to be forgiven.





Struggling...

For weeks I have meant to sit down and gather my thoughts here. Time seems to run away from me with things pulling me in so many different directions; like homeschooling, the children's spiritual walk, as well as ministry work and church. Yes my plate some days seems so overwhelmingly full that even those days I want to blog and it is constantly on my mind I NEVER seem to get to it.

So I guess I should get you up to speed on what is been going on here: My eldest has ended his courtship. It happened fairly quickly after I posted the post announcing the courtship. He really started to see how difficult it was for him to continue on when she truly was not equally yoked with him. She wanted different things, was unwilling to change her life to accommodate a person she supposedly loved. Recently the mother- who said terrible things about him, and our family, without ever knowing us or spending time with us- called to apologize for not accepting him into their family. I am not sure what that was suppose to do on our son's end, but he knew that it was right to allow her the opportunity to ask for forgiveness.

My beloved is still in the process of becoming an elder. If you think of him this Saturday please pray for him. He has an elder interview with the other elders. I am unsure what that means, but I think they review his application with him. I am ready for all these man made policies and procedures to be over with. There is nothing biblical about all the things Sam has had to go through to become an elder. Sometimes he is torn in telling them so and just submitting to this craziness.

In the meantime we continue to try to disciple and minister within the church body where we can. We especially have the heart for the young people. We do hope we will get to do that regularly, but it seems this church does not do what you feel led to do. They put you where they feel you should be. (without even asking- yep that's another story all together)


Ellie is getting so big.. she is now 17 months old and oh my does she keep us all on our toes. She climbs on the dining room table, or any where she can get up on. She is into everything especially the trash. She talks alot. She is currently trying to get everyone's names. Joey she says very well. Maria is sissy. She does try to say Paul. Her first word was "mama" for once instead of dada like most babies. She brings so much to us all. We enjoy her tremendously!

Also can I get you to pray for our Ministry and the people on the funding list. ( www.thelordsheritage.com)
