God is Calling His children to Reflect the Image of His Son

He is a God of Love ! Can we all say, Yes! He is a God of Love! (Please read 1 John 4:14-27).

We are servants of the living God. That means we are expandable. We are at His disposal. We must choose to think of ourselves, not as priceless porcelain, but as paper cups that God may use for what He wants to accomplish. You can not out give the LORD. God doesn't take anything away that He does not replace many times over. And sometimes He delivers in miraculous ways. Look at Dan. 3:26-29, "Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, who sent His Angels and delivered His servants who trusted Him".

If you and I are willing to put God first, then those around us will see Him also. They will see how you trust Him as you go through difficulties and they will marvel at what He does in and through your life. Please look at the following scriptures: Colossians 3:15, Romans 5:8, Hebrews 7:25-9:28, I Thess 2:12-13, 1 Cor. 1-9. Fellowship with Him.

Ask our Lord and King to transform you into the image of HIs Son. 1 John 4:17-18 says, "Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgement: Because as he is, so are we in this world. (v.18) There is no fear in Love; but perfect Love casts out all fear, because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love". And in 1 John 4:12, we see, "No man has seen God at anytime. If we love one another God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us". Verse 21 is a command of God: "He that loveth God loves his brother also".

I want to end with this thought...Ezekiel 12:25,"' For I am The Lord, I will speak, and the word that I shall speak will come to pass. It shall be no more prolonged, for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it', saith the Lord God."

This is a strong word! It says to me "Let's take our God seriously". He has been waiting for His children to get their lives together. Now we are seeing, signs of His coming everywhere. We are hearing, stars are aligning with Revelation 12. I just got a magazine with Daniel's 70 weeks as a main article; posting the time line of Dan. 9:24-27. For the first time, Nasa is posting warnings of things to come. Matthew 24:37 says, "to those who see the fig tree bloom, this generation shall not pass". Well wake up! This happened nearly 70 years ago! Israel was put back into place in Nov. of 1947. No matter who does the time line, it comes out the same... "He is coming" and it is in our time!! It doesn't matter who is closer, all that matters is He is coming, and it will be in our time. Luke 12:56 says, "Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth: but how is it that ye do not discern this time?" (Matt 10:26 look for your self). Live as though He is coming tomorrow. Show His love stop the fighting. If love shows, we are a child of the King! What does your justified anger show? Who's image are you portraying then? Please, there is no time for foolishness.

I love you all, in Him who made us all.

Kiss the children, hug the Grandmas, call the great Aunts.
Build your relationship with the family, so that you are first a testimony to the family, then the rest of the world will catch on.
Stop worrying about everyone else's stuff and get the speck out of your own eye.

We are called to love as Christ would and did.

God's Blessings on America and pray for our Nation under God!
Cover us Lord! Forgive our Sins!
He stretched out His arms and died to cover us with HIs blood!

Love, In Him

I am always about my Fathers business.
