Psalm 91- The Lord Protects me

Comments 2 Standard

I live in the shelter of the Most High
And I find rest in the Shadow of the Almighty
This I declare about the Lord on High,
He alone is my rock and my safety
He is my refuge and where I go to hide
When my enemies surround me
And a thousand fall at my side
Traps and snares try to grab me
But the Lord rescues and I rejoice gladly
Deadly diseases and a world of evil things
Yet My God covers me and protects me under His wings
His promises are yes and true
Our Armour, protecting me and you
I will not be afraid of the terrors in the night
Though the world tries to fill each heart with fright
The Lord goes before me, He strengthens me with His might
No evil can touch me, my prayers reach His heights
For I know He hears each word I pray
Protecting me each night and every day
I have made the Lord my refuge, a shelter is He
Therefore He’s promised no evil can conquer me
Plagues cannot touch those I love
His angels protect me, commissioned from above
They hold me up with their hands
And protect me as I walk through this land
I love my God, whose throne is on High
And Jesus, His Son, on His right Side
He is with me through all my troubles and fear
Always besides me, always near.
Amen and Amen
God is good

A dream about my church……..

Comment 1 Standard

These are 2 dreams I had that I believe were about my church. Not sure if I’m posting it for a read, for insight or just recording what’s on my mind.  Whatever it is, here it is…..

A few years ago, I dreamt my pastor left the congregation and then soon afterward he announced he was leaving. In early 2019, I dreamt that a new young captain was assigned to huge cruise ship that we were all on, he was young and inexperienced and was getting all his orders from London and the goal was to lead us all to death.  Within weeks of my dream, a new young pastor arrived, and come to find out, he was send to London to a church conference, flying first class – 14K$

Dream 1

In my large church, we had a restaurant upstairs so in my dream, I had entered a large room similar to the church restaurant. Everyone in the entire church was sitting at tables talking and laughing and having a great time of fellowship. The room was not lit up well, very dark. As I walked in, I started to say hello to the people I knew but I noticed that every person was sitting on an open toilet. Everyone kept inviting me to sit with them but I kept refusing because I thought it was disgusting to sit on an open toilet in public. As I continued to say no to everyone, they got angry with me. They started being very mean, aggressive  and accusing me of thinking I was better than them, this went on table after table that I walked by. Suddenly, I had to use the restroom, I thought, there is no way I’m going here at a toilet at a table with people where we eat.  I pondered what to do. I remembered the Pastor had a house, huge mansion, next door, I would try to sneak in to use his bathroom.

I snuck into the Pastor’s home. It was beautiful, lit up, white marble floors and chandeliers full of light. I found the bathroom to the left of the front door and surprisingly it was like a public restroom with 3 stalls in it. It was white, clean and pristine.  As I walked in, I looked out a window to my right. I saw an old white pick up truck drive in and park. It was  loaded with what looked like Samali pirates with machine guns, the back of the  pick up truck was packed with the men and they started to jump out towards the front door. I heard the pastor say to his wife “We need to let the congregation go or they’ll kill us , maybe kill all of us, we need to let the people go now! We can’t let them know!”

I quickly ran back to the people sitting on the toilets and started telling them to get out! get out! This isn’t a stationary church, but it’s a moving train and if you don’t get off now, it will be too late! I frantically warned everyone, but no one listened. The more I warned, the funnier everyone thought it was. Then I stopped and pointed at the window. I said look, it’s too late, we’re already moving.  We’re  heading south.” My dream ended.

The Pastor soon announced he was leaving, the church was sad, and now as gossip goes, just this week I heard he was pushed out but I don’t know if that’s true. It’s just what I heard.

It seemed like it was a long long time that our church went without a pastor, we had a fill in pastor who is local and mostly well liked by everyone in the community. The church has a pastoral committee who supposedly was searching and I’m rolling my eyes as I write this sentence. So early 2019, I had dream that shook me up so much, I was borderline having my first panic attack because the dream was so frightening and real to me. The dream hasn’t left me and it continually pops in my head, even a year later.

Dream 2-

There was a huge ship that I was on. I had been living on it all my life. I knew my way around the ship, I knew the laws for safety, I knew how the ship ran, I knew almost every part of the ship and how it worked, how to keep people safe and how it operated. I was close to the captain- as a family member because he had taught me all my life the things I needed to know.  We were on our regular course but for some reason needed to be rerouted. The captain was growing old and headquarters wanted him replaced with someone young, I’m guessing because a new young captain came to rule and run the ship. At first I was happy and looking forward to the new captain, but as he began to run the ship and talk to people, I kept telling him that everything he said was not right. He led the people through the dark bottom part of the ship showing us the engine room, electricity room and so on but he wasn’t leading us correctly. I continually pointed out all his errors but he ignored me. I remember telling him ” You’re not leading the people with a light, they are going to get hurt. You need a light to lead them through the darkness” He would not listen to me and continued to lead the large mass into the darkness as if they could see. He wasn’t like the old captain who knew how to run the ship. I began to worry as I saw more and more things going on that weren’t right for the people.

Then he was given orders to head back to headquarters – higher up-and drop everyone off at an island while the ship was  rerouted so we didn’t have to take such a long voyage and we could relax on the island until he picked us up. He was told to tell us the island was a safe place for us to stay and he’d be back to get us shortly. The young captain was getting his orders from another authority but didn’t tell anyone. He pretended he was the one in charge, but behind him were other authorities.

We get to the island and the captain tells everyone to get off the ship, the people are happy and eager to trust the young captain and he seems confident as well. I get off the ship and quickly do a run of the island to see what’s there. I see skeletons, skulls and different degrees of dying bodies, death, decay… and I notice there is no food or water on the island.  The ship is starting to sail off and I quickly run back and call for the ship to let me back on. I get back on and I tell the captain ” Are you trying to kill us? I don’t know what your up to, but we will die here. If your trying to kill us, I guess you’ll have to kill us on the ship because I’m not dying on an island” He gracefully and friendly welcomes me back on board and we head north to headquarters – seems like It’s in England that we’re heading to- and where he is getting his orders from. But again, no one knows he’s getting orders from another place except for me, because for some reason, I can see it happening.

We sail on and the leaders for headquarters are on the ship. Suddenly we’re on a new boat with same young captain but new high authorities were there behind him. They spoke very positively to us so everyone was comfortable and confident that they were leading us the right way and in safety. They soon told us that they had assigned rooms to all of us and we needed to slide down a short chute to the floor below to get our room assignment. What seemed like hundreds or thousands lined up behind the 4 chutes that we had to slide down to get to our room.

I saw my husband quickly jump and slide down the 3rd chute, I was first in line for the first chute, I saw him mention to my daughter to slide down after him so I watched her jump in also. I quickly jumped in behind her so I could be with them.

I began to slide down quickly, but I was sliding for a while. I tried not to panic. It was like being stuck in a dark mri. I realized this wasn’t going to the floor below. I was too far down to even communicate with people above me or warn theme. My children were below me and hundreds of people had jumped in the chute above my head. The chute got tighter and I could barely move. I couldn’t move up, I knew a line of people were on top of me in the chute. I had to inch my way down as it got tighter and tighter. I was trying not to panic as I was tightly packed in darkness, soon after much time of inching my way down I felt water at my feet. I was being sent to my death along with my family and everyone in boat.

The captain and his cohorts had lied to us, they smiled and acted like our best friends but their intent was pure wickedness.

The Hidden History of the Laundry Chute - The Atlantic

I woke up from the dream scared out of my mind. I felt so close to terrifying death. That morning was Sunday and I headed off to church to my bible group. I kept having to step out of the study room (8X) because my mind kept reliving the same feeling I had in the trapped chute. My mom prayed for me later that day and all my panic and fear left me.

Soon afterward my dream-within a month, it was announced that a pastor had been selected. A new young pastor and his family were hired by the pastoral committee. It’s been a year since he’s been on board and he’s turned the church upside down, fired almost everyone, changed our groups, kids events and everything about it including things we had going on for at least 50 years. I know a lot of horrible things that have gone on behind the scenes in the last year , but I have kept silent (is it gossip? is it hearsay? Is it true?) and now a petition is out to oust him.

what is going on?

The church situation in the world is pathetic. It’s a big business, money making machine with unseen puppeteers.

I told a friend of mine about this dream last year and she sent me this article that was interesting:  Warning Dream for American Church: Beware the Capsized Ship

An Average of 6-9 million people had the flu each month between October 2019 and March 2020- according to CDC

Comments 3 Standard

That’s right, according to the CDC, between October 2019 and March 14. 2020-  38,000,000 – 54,000,000  people got the flu in the United States, with 23,000 –  59,000 flu deaths and NO ONE HAD TO CLOSE ANY PUBLIC restaurants, businesses, schools or BOAT RAMPS . That’s 5.5 months of CDC Stats, so let’s do math: 6,909,090 -9,818,181 people each month got the flu between 2019-2020 in those 5.5 months.   10,000 DEATHS PER MONTH from the Flu! (And that’s with 50% -80% of the population receiving the flu shot- on cdc site as per 2018-2019 so probably higher numbers this year)

If we’re rounding, my title should read 7 million to 10 million people got the flu each month  in the last 5-6 months. 

As of today, USA has 55000 COVID 19 Cases- I’m assuming that’s for all of March? Maybe February too. And remember – There’s a recovery number we’re not seeing.

I’m not saying this isn’t important, and I’m not denying that people have it, but I want you to see it from a real prospective…. If you have more insight into this, please explain it in the comments.

And the CDC wouldn’t lie…. unless they were getting flu vax kickbacks, but that’s deep state talk, so most irrelevant (CDC is funded by congress)

Am i doing the math wrong? Is there something I’m not doing right? Please tell me bc my city is almost at a shut down – we can’t even put a boat on the water because .0081% of people in Florida have Covid19- and that number obviously includes people who have recovered, but for some reason, that’s not told to us. Yes, South Florida has about half of the cases in Florida – approx 350 in Miami and 312 in fort Lauderdale but again, that is .019% of the county  population. Isn’t that 2 people out of every 10K in Broward county

I know, I see the numbers for New York, but where are the recovery numbers? When this first came out I saw China continually posted their high recovery rate at 50% and growing – but not our numbers. New York was at an estimated 17K a month for flu stats according to their health department.

More people died from the flu in the last 5 months than have the corona19 virus (USA)

What’s really going on?

BTW, I’m not promoting the flu vax here with these stats. My neighbor got a flu shot and ended up in a coma for 2 months and died 6 months later. The guy had just retired , enjoying his 2nd year of retirement. My bro and family got the flu shots and they all ended up with the flu for Christmas so explain that to me. I’m not sold on it.

If this covid is really as dangerous as they say it is, then the cdc is lying to us about the flu stats. If the cdc is lying about the flu stats its because flu shots are a money maker for them.If cdc is lying, then covid19 stats could also be misleading. If you research cdc statistics, you’ll find a pediatrician wrote on the USdept of health accusing them of lying.

Lyrics
Getting caught up in the here and now
Has a tendency to wear me down
Am I really free if I’m thinking ’bout
Only temporary things?
The world’s screaming so loud
When I’m locked to the middle of my doubt
When I’m lost in the rythm of the crowd
I hear heaven calling me
Don’t want to be anothe victim
Falling prey to the system
When You’ve called me the the kingdom
I know I am a citizen of Heaven
My identity forever is Yours, Yours
I know I am a citizen of Heaven
My identity forever is Yours, Yours
I can see your breaking through the clouds
You made this soul to be glory bound
I can hardly keep my feet on the gorund
‘Cause I know I will be free
Lord, won’t you open up the gates wide?
Gonna step into a new life
No way I’m ever leaving Your side
I know I am a citizen…

 

Benefits of reading the bible. Why should I read the bible? Why should I study?

Comments 2 Standard

      “Why do you read the bible?”

          How can I explain the wonders, the joy and the power of the Word of God?   I decided I would search the scriptures so I would be ready next time someone asks- why do you bother reading the bible?

 “ Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth.” Eph 4:14

Why should we study the scriptures?
Why should we seek Him?

For I am always thinking of your laws. I meditate on them day and night. I write to you who are God’s children because you know the Father, I have written to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning. I have written to you whoa re young in the faith because you are strong. God’s word lives in your hearts and you have won your battle with the evil one. 1 John 2:14

Hear the Word of the Lord:

Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles. I meditate on your age-old regulations; O Lord, they comfort me. Don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.  For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror.  You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like.  But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it. How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your word. I have tried hard to find you— don’t let me wander from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. I praise you, O Lord; teach me your decrees. I have recited aloud all the regulations you have given us. I have rejoiced in your laws as much as in riches. I will study your commandments and reflect on your ways. I will delight in your decrees and not forget your word (Ps 119:7-16, Ps 119:50-52, James 1:22-25, Ps 119:2)

For the gracious hand of his God was on him. This was because Ezra had determined to study and obey the Law of the Lord and to teach those decrees and regulations to the people of Israel. Ezra 7:10

He must always keep that copy with him and read it daily as long as he lives. That way he will learn to fear the Lord his God by obeying all the terms of these instructions and decrees.  This regular reading will prevent him from becoming proud and acting as if he is above his fellow citizens. It will also prevent him from turning away from these commands in the smallest way. And it will ensure that he and his descendants will reign for many generations in Israel. Deut. 17: 18-21

  Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

“The Lord your God will then make you successful in everything you do. He will give you many children and numerous livestock, and he will cause your fields to produce abundant harvests, for the Lord will again delight in being good to you as he was to your ancestors.  The Lord your God will delight in you if you obey his voice and keep the commands and decrees written in this Book of Instruction, and if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and soul.“This command I am giving you today is not too difficult for you to understand, and it is not beyond your reach. Duet 30: 9-11

Listen to Him

 Anyone who belongs to God listens gladly to the words of God. But you don’t listen because you don’t belong to God.” So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it. Be careful that you do not refuse to listen to the One who is speaking. Seek the LORD while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given, and they will have an abundance of knowledge. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them.  Matthew 13:11-13, John 8:47, Heb 2:1, Heb 12:25, Rev 1:3, is 55:6

Remain in His Word: But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!  Ps 119:10, John 15:7, 1Peter1:25, Ps 119:28

Delight in the Law. Meditate on it Day and Night: But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do. Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul.The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight for living. Reverence for the Lord is pure,lasting forever. The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair. They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb. They are a warning to your servant, a great reward for those who obey them Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts. Ps 119:2, Ps 1:1-3, Josh 1:8, Ps 19:7-11

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. Those who love your instructions have great peace and do not stumble.119:65. 105

But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it.  It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built. 49 But anyone who hears and doesn’t obey is like a person who builds a house without a foundation. When the floods sweep down against that house, it will collapse into a heap of ruins.” Luke 6:46-49, matt 4:4

Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. 32 And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! John 15:7, John 8:31

 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 1God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work. For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.Romans 1:16, Eph 6:17, Heb 4:122 Tim 3:16
