    Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me; declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done; saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure; Isaiah 46:9 WEBDuring a sci-fi night...
  • Joseph came in to them in the morning, and saw them, and saw that they were sad. He asked Pharaoh's officers who were with him in custody in his master's house, saying, 'Why do you look so sad today?' They said to him, 'We have dreamed a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it.' Joseph said ...

Scary Movies

  • For this cause, I remind you that you should stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God didn't give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control. 2 Timmothy 1:6 WEB

    Have you ever felt a sense of dread come over you? Have you been afraid of that monster in the closet, or under the bed? My older brother who had the driver's license, was a serious horror movie fan, and I must have seen every one released while growing up. Do not let that happen to your children. For years I paid the price, and I still despise them today. Why would someone do that with a chainsaw?

    After I started drawing closer to God, He revealed to me that fear is rooted in not trusting Him. Though it can be a very powerful enemy to overcome, He is the ultimate power. Faith is believing that God will protect you. Fear is believing that He will not.

    Often it is because we feel that we have let Him down, that God is mad at us and we may get punished, but God removes our past sins away from us just like they never happened. If you grew up like I did and your brain was trained to think a certain way, it can take a while to retrain your thought patterns. I had to memorize this verse and say it often. God didn't give us a spirit of fear.

    God's Holy Spirit gives us power, love and a sound, disciplined mind, which is the complete opposite of fear and panic. Resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4:7). Let your mind be renewed, and take on the mind of Christ. If God is for us, who can stand against us? Think positive and do not dwell on what may happen, because it may not. Put your trust in Him, and do not try and work it all out in your mind. God knows the end from beginning, and He is well able to prepare you for what is coming. Don't be scared.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for being there for me. Please remove the fear from my life and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Let me walk in faith and power and be a part of what You are doing on this earth today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Dear Father, I thank You for all You do for me by giving me the assurance that You are with us. That when fears overwhelm us, Your Holy Spirit is there with us. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Very well said, if God is with us we should not have fears. Thank you Pastor, God bless you.

Amen! This is a reminder and conformation of the same things I was thinking and praying about the other day. Thank you pastor Dion. I to was raised with a wrong way of thinking about a lot of things. Negativity,anger resentment,clamor and malice to name a few. It was generational, I recognized it all the way to my great grand mother on my Dad's side. There were wrongs done to them in their lives,no doubt. But I reckon they processed it the wrong way by not giving it to God and not forgiving. I do believe in my Dad's later years he started to let go and forgive by God's grace and with His help. That's the only way we can be renewed and changed is by His work in us.

I have never liked horror movies because I felt that the Devil was in them. I don’t go see them because I don’t need him whispering in my ear. I guess that sounds childish, but I just don’t go see them. Not to mention the language and some of the scenes that are obscene. I don’t want to subject myself to any of it.
