    Then Satan answered Yahweh, and said, 'Does Job fear God for nothing? Haven't you made a hedge around him, and around his house, and around all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth your hand now, and touch all t...

Hell on Earth

  • He said to them, 'Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation.' Mark 16:15 WEB

    Jesus spoke these words to the eleven Apostles before He ascended to heaven. There is so much that could be said about this, but today we cover 'The Gospel.' The word Gospel means 'glad tidings, good or joyful news.' We are to proclaim the 'good and joyful news' to the whole creation.

    The good news: Lord Jesus the King is returning and His kingdom will be established on the earth, just as it is in heaven. He died to take away the sins of the world, and He will take yours away today if you let Him.

    The earth will be restored and become the paradise that it was created to be. The wolf and the lamb will graze together (Isaiah 11:6). The lion will eat grass. Children will be able to play with cobras (11:8). There will be no more sickness, pain, or death, no more child abuse, and no one will hurt anyone else.

    People today need hope more than ever before. I know from experience that people that have nothing to live for, are not threatened by hell. They feel they are already there. Like an injured animal backed into a corner, more threats are not helping them come out of it. Many are living in their own hell, right here on earth.

    What they need is a light in the darkness, a way out. Jesus can give them that and make their life meaningful again. It is not too late. As long as you have breath, there is hope. When you share the good and joyful news with someone, do it lovingly, or not at all.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please guide me today and help me make the right decisions. Let me see the hurting through Your eyes. Take away my pain and fill my heart with Your love. Speak to me and through me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray

    Note: The highlighted group of the week is the Haven of Hope, a private refuge for anyone who is suffering from the effects of abuse. The heart of Haven of Hope beats compassion, honesty and healing. The highest priority is your safety and that you feel the warmth of our Heavenly Father''s love while you rest, share, and connect with others who are walking a similar road. ALSO, the Creation Photographers theme of the week is "What Makes You Smile" based on Ephesians 6:7. As always, you are free to post anything else that inspires you, too!

I pray that God will bring those across my path that I need to share the gospel with, and that I live my life in a very pleasing way that others will see Jesus Christ in my life.

When I lost our home, I turned my back and said," Lord Jesus,this is bigger than I can handle. I place it in your hands, I will go where you want me to go and live where you want me to live!" You will not believe where he put me,1 block over,2 _3 blocks down,lives 1 of the men who murdered my daughter. I am not questioning Jesus Christ. But, like the pastor said,there are allot of shut-ins,and, I am one. I pray for understanding but try,oh,try so hard not to question,so, yes, I only go out every 3 months to my doctor. I have a list of doctors to go and see at 71yrs old,but, I'm scared if someone sees me,or,have to go to the hospital,nurses,know me there. I pray and pray with no relief coming.Can someone,some where,please help me ?Thank you and God's blessings to all of you. Amen. From a Shut-ins in
