Delusion is the opposite of Truth that causes destruction because we live continually sinning against God.
Before I was saved my life was a delusion. My inside life did not match my outside life. As a matter of fact they were the complete opposite. What are some examples of delusions we live in? I am a good person, a clean person, I am kind, patient, and giving.
However, without Jesus Christ in us we are not in truth and able to be that person. Why, Because we do not have the power or the capacity to be good, clean, kind, patient or giving before a holy God. We are born into sin not holiness.
Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, in this way death spread to all men, because all sinned…. read more
This is how the world defines a broken heart and as far as how it feels, this is an accurate definition.
brokenhearted – crushed by sorrow, grief, or disappointment; inconsolable and grievously sad.
A broken-heart is full of pain and sorrow. It will weep with no way to comfort and will lose hope. Our heart feels as if it is literally shattered into many pieces. It is not only emotionally painful but our heart experiences physical pain as well.
Our heart becomes overwhelmed, and the grief and sorrow become to much to bear. There is also accompanying emotions such as anger, depression and even abandonment. Life becomes; how are you going to make it to the next moment, hour or even second of that day? Many search to find solutions through other people or things but there is no true freedom from the heartache nor the mending of the shattered pieces… learn more
Is Jesus Asleep
Matthew 8:24 And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being covered with the waves; but Jesus Himself was asleep.
Does it seem as if Jesus is asleep during your storm of heartache? I have gone through some storms recently and the pain in my heart overwhelmed me. I could not have handled the pain apart from Jesus holding me. I asked the Lord to show me the good in this and three days later He did. He gave me a vision of Him standing in the midst of the storm and my pain…. read more
2 Corinthians 4:17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison,
Affliction and suffering comes to every true believer and it is not joyous at the time. God does not allow His children to suffer without a purpose. What is the purpose, to draw us nearer to Jesus, prepare us to come home, and to glorify God. I just recently experienced this in my life and I now know it is hard and challenging. It effected me not only physically but I was shown the enormous amount of lies that were running through my head to keep me from the Truth (Jesus). The lies fight against the truth which causes stress and worry. During this time I had two choices, continue to believe my lies or choose to pursue and believe the Truth. It is a struggle to decipher what is Truth and what is a lie because the lies are so deeply embedded. In order for me to know the truth I do the following, I pray, read the word of God daily, and listen to sermons at night while I sleep. I stay in constant prayer and I have someone to help me with the Word of God. If what I am believing is a lie then I pray to have that lie eradicated…. read more
The world is becoming a darker and darker place. It seems as if evil is winning and destroying all since of right and wrong. There is fear, anger, and lack of understanding as to why. The only place to find the answers is in the bible. But most of the world is now doing all it can to eradicate God so most people will not find the truth. People will desperately look to find safety, peace and security, without considering the cost.
Where is the peace you are desperately searching for? We give our life into someone’s hand, who’s hand have you given your life to? The world will find peace but it will vanish after 3 1/2 years because it will be a false peace. For believers, our peace is in Christ Jesus, our salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, and knowing this is not our home. Our hope and security is in our heavenly Father Who loves us with a great and immense love. Know who you belong to and seek true peace and safety…. read more

3 The Philistines were standing on one hill, and the Israelites were standing on another hill with a ravine between them. 4 Then a champion named Goliath, from Gath, came out from the Philistine camp. He was nine feet, nine inches tall 5 and wore a bronze helmet and bronze scale armor that weighed 125 pounds. 6 There was bronze armor on his shins, and a bronze sword was slung between his shoulders. 7 His spear shaft was like a weaver’s beam, and the iron point of his spear weighed 15 pounds. In addition, a shield-bearer was walking in front of him.… read more
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.
As a professing believer I thought I was living fully for God, however I did not truly understand what living in death and living for life meant until recently. So the thought of believing I was living for Him fully was a lie, but God and His mercy and loving-kindness is saving me from myself of destruction and is renewing me. The Holy Spirit placed in my heart to pray for freedom from living in torment of fear, worry and anxiety which has been apart of me for over 40 years. I began to pray what He placed in my heart.
As a believer I am not to be afraid! So as a confessing Christian I have a problem. I am not walking in the light I am walking in death. While praying what He placed in my heart changes began to occur that NO ONE CAN SOLVE OR HELP ME WITH. This is between me and God!… read more
