Consuming Fire
God is in control
Despite the whirling world
News/lies
and the truth
going underground
the church, the Bride
of Jesus Christ
is being tested
through the fire
what is the fire in your life?
What test is God,
The Consuming Fire,
Guiding you through?
For He is with us every step
Of the Way,
Jesus is the Way,
the Truth
And the Life

Sight to the Blind
Amongst the prophecies that Jesus, the Messiah, fulfilled, one of them was that Jesus came to give sight to the blind.* Especially the spiritually blind.  He  increases our FAITH in GOD and teaches us by blessing us with the gifts of the Holy Spirit~ that is what the gift is~ sight to see how hidden in the darkness our spirits are.  How sin has tinted our vision.  How it still continues to do. But now there is some light.  It grows as we understand GOD’S word, His love and His creation. Our sight grows and we see now the evil all around us in the world.  How Satan has deceived: Evolution. The earth a million years old.  The evil people in power through the ages of the world. Denial of the flood.   Denial of GOD’s Word. Denial of God’s absolute truth and judgement on sinful man.
John 3: 16For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God di

Speak GOD Ask GOD
Speak God’s Blessings to people
then
ask God to provide the Blessing
you ask in the name of Jesus
you are acting as a part
of the body of Christ
when you do ask according to His Will
and how do you know His Will ?
by reading His Word, the Bible
when you study the life of Jesus
In giving God’s Blessings to people
you make the very Blessing
a prayer for other people
This is showing God’s love
Pray on behalf of other people
Asking God to enter and bless them
With His Holy Spirit
What Else do they need?
But

GOD
 
“May the Lord, our God bless you with His Spirit, In the name of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God.”

Be Still ~ Rest
Psalm 46:10
“Be still and know that
I Am God.”
Be still. Where do you do that? “Be still- stop struggling against me!” God might say.  
Don’t even move in your mind. Tune into the Lord, thy God.  Hear His Holy Word. This is the Word of the Lord: “Be still, and know that I am GOD”
Quit fighting, debating in your mind, over and over, what to do.
Quit thinking!!!
“And know…”
Confess God is God.
Give God the glory.
Confess Jesus is lord!
Stop trying to take control; convinced that you know what’s best~ so God must agree…
God knows the intent of the heart.
(Jeremiah 17:10, Hebrews 4:11-13)
Stop Fighting the Spirit, when He comes and convicts us with the Word of God. Hearing it then thinking: "it doesn’t apply to me.”
“And know that I AM GOD.”
Jesus is the great, “I AM”.
and “find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:27-29
Come to me, Jesus calls.
Be still ~I

A Burdened Soul
When I asked God to change me,
I didn’t know what to expect;
I was unaware of what would happen.
Being a disciple
Is the same as being a soldier;
We have to face hardship.
I didn’t ask for these burdens;
The Devil takes his aim at me
And fires day by day.
They never said it’d be easy;
The reality is very clear,
And yet I don’t want to give up.
If I turn away right now, what would I have to gain?
And if I lose my faith, what would I have to live for?
I’ve already taken up my cross; and I refuse to put it down.
But I’m struggling here.
I fall on my knees and again I surrender;
I cry out to God, my Rock and Redeemer:
“My Savior! I need You! There’s nothing that I can do,
But by faith I know that You will carry me through!”

Jesus' Faith
The good and faithful servant
to God
is the one
who trusts Him
 &
is always waiting
for their Master~
for the Masters Voice
Devotion
I’m living for the Lord
I’m dying for the Lord
I’ll suffer for the Lord
Because He said:
”My God and your God,
My Father and your Father””*
Jesus adopted us into the Family of God
Jesus, our Brother
He did it all for us
He lived,
He died,
He loved God perfectly,
by
loving us perfectly
and dying to save
Like we deserved to die for our sins
and He took our place on the cross
He took our place in our death
Jesus died for us!
Do you get it?
He really did
“Now even though you die
You will live”**
Just like Jesus did
Just like Jesus did
Cause He had the perfect trust
Christ had the perfect FAITH
In God
His Father
God the Father whom the Son came out of His bosom
HE WAS GOD
The ONE GOD

Hi there! :D
I have to say I really enjoy those photography pieces with the Bible quotes on them, thank you for making them.
What better way to spread His Message than to showcase what He has created?
Peace be with you, brother :D
