To Save A Life

Proverbs 22:6

New King James Version (NKJV)
Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.

I see this as a promise to parents, and those that raise children.

A great promise, but I am wanting to focus on something that goes along with that promise, and it’s you, the one raising them up in the way they should go.

How about you?  

I talk to kids who parents do go to church and do ‘hear’ the Word of God preached, and kids who parents don’t go and the kids 'hear' the Word of God preached.

They say “My parents don’t care what I watch on t.v.”,  “My parents don’t care who I hang with,”  “My parents don’t care if I go to R- rated movies,”   “My parents don’t care what I do or don’t do”.   Or, listen to this one, “My parents don’t know what I am doing."

So, which parent are you?

Do you ‘really’ know the kids your son or daughter run with and spend the nights with?   Do you allow them to watch what they want?  Do you know what movie they just went to?  Have you checked out the school dances?   Do you let them go to teen and sub-teen parties?  Really?  There’s enough that happens without you knowing what’s going on.  Things they won’t tell you.  The drunken party,  the drug, the rape, the incest.

I am not trying to be morbid; but what I am trying to tell you is ‘don’t be stupid.’  Save a life from horror, and  hurt, etc.  What can you do as a parent, grandparent, and or guardian?

1.    Look at your life?  Do you smoke, drink, watch R-rated movies, What kind of shows, movies do you have going in your house?  What kind of music. 
2.   What are 'you' exposing your child to.
3.   Do you avoid people who tell you the truth?  Who warn you ?
4.   Do you say ‘do what I say’, ‘not what I do’
5.   Are you angry and cursing and drinking (drunkard) all the time?
6.   You smoking pot, doing drugs around your children and in secret?

The list could go on.   It’s not even a matter of you being a phony Christian, and or a stupid parent; what matters is “To Save A Life”, do you ‘really’ care enough to do what is right?

Do you care enough to confess to yourself, God, and your children, “I’ve done wrong, I have not brought you up in the way that you should go.   Will your forgive me, and from now on I am going to be the mother, the father, the grandparent, the guardian that I am suppose to be according to the Word of God."

It starts with you, repenting and getting right, and being the kind of example that is necessary.

Christmas Child 2013


CHRISTMAS CHILD BLOG
There's so many needs in this world. Wouldn't it be nice if we were able to meet every one of those needs? By ourselves we cannot, but every one of us can in one way or another be a part of that. So many in the body of Christ are sitting on their gifts and their ability to give. God's Kingdom Economy is the opposite of the kingdoms of this world's economy. God's economy is to pour out so we can pour more. When we give to bless, He will bless us to be able to give more.

This year, Dec. 20st, 2013 @ 6 PM, we are having a the Christmas Child party at Word-A-Live! Church(1 thru 18) for underprivileged children’  those who wouldn't have a Christmas, otherwise. We are looking for children who won't have a Christmas gift or celebration this year; unless someone(s) is willing to give.

I am asking for:
Donors. Those who are willing to give a gift ($10 and more), marked gender and age or a money donation for the party or gifts.
Helpers to help organize this and those who will come to  serve and help.

We will be having goodies in our Kidz Room for children & families, and Christmas Carole's in the sanctuary with gifts.  I read where a gentleman who was abundantly blessed, gave 100 bikes away; and another 1,000 bikes for a  Kidz Christmas party just like the kind we are planning.  We need names of children to invite or where we can get names of those who are in need this Christmas.

Will you plant a seed into good ground? Your skills, your finances, your support, your prayers, the contacts for names?

I would like to see us be able to do more, but it's what we can do now. It's what we have in the house now. It's like the poor widow woman in the Bible, she gave what she had and God multiplied it, as long as she kept pouring. I am believing with expectancy that God will multiply our resources next year as we pour this year!

Will you be part of the miracle? Let me know what you can do.

HONOR



HONOR


WE LIVE IN A DAY WHERE HONOR IS BECOMING OBSOLETE.  OF COURSE, I AM WRITING THIS FROM SCRIPTURE AND A CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE.   BUT, I REMEMBER EVEN WAY BACK WHEN I WAS A KID IN SCHOOL, HONOR WAS TAUGHT.

HONOR IS A GIFT THAT WE GIVE TO OTHERS.   IT IS EVEN DIFFERENT FROM RESPECT.

SCRIPTURES SAYS WE ARE TO HONOR ONE ANOTHER, TO HONOR YOUR MOTHER AND FATHER, TO HONOR THOSE IN AUTHORITY.   YOU CAN DO A GOOD WORD STUDY ON HONOR
 
WHY IS HONOR LACKING?  THE WORD OF GOD TELLS US WHY:BECAUSE  OF HARD HEARTS WITH FRUITS OF UNFORGIVENESS, BITTERNESS, & SELFISHNESS.

RECENTLY I SAT AND WATCHED A GROWN WOMEN DISHONOR A YOUNG LITTLE BOY WHO HONORED HER WITH A GIFT, A BOUQUET OF FLOWERS HE PICKED FOR HER; AND THE WAY SHE RESPONDED  WAS WITH UNTHANKFULNESS AND ACTING UNINTERESTED IN THE GIFT GIVEN HER.  SHE LOOKED AT THEM AND PAST THEM ON TO SOMEONE TO PUT THEM IN A VASE OR ‘SOMETHING’.    IT BROKE HIS HEART; BUT IT BROKE MINE TOO.  KIDS LEARN FROM THE ADULTS. 

HAVE YOU BEEN DISHONORED?   EVEN IN OUR COUNTRY WE DISHONOR THOSE WHO ARE IN THE ARMED FORCES AND FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY, THOSE WHO STAND UP FOR BIBLICAL PRINCIPALS,  AND THOSE WHO LIVE BY GOOD MORALS AND BIBLICAL STANDARDS ARE DISHONORED.  WHY?  THE WORD OF GOD SAYS, BECAUSE OF THE HARDNESS OF THEIR HEARTS.

WE ARE LIVING IN SERIOUS TIMES.   IT'S THE LAST DAYS AND IT SAYS IN GOD'S WORD THAT IS HOW PEOPLE WILL BEHAVE.   HOW WILL OUR CHILDREN LIVE IN THESE LAST DAYS?   

WE MUST BE EXAMPLES IN SHOWING HONOR AND WE MUST TEACH IT IN OUR HOMES, CHURCHES, SCHOOLS, AND AMONG EACH OTHER.  THE WORD OF GOD MUST BE STRONG IN OUR HEARTS.   THE CHILDREN WILL LEARN TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS WE DO THAT TODAY AS THEIR PEERS.
HAVE YOU HAD A HARD HEART TOWARDS THOSE WHO HAVE
BLESSED YOU OVER THE YEARS, AND ACTUALLY GIVEN UP THEIR LIVES FOR YOU IN SOME WAY?  HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN TO BE THANKFUL AND EXPRESS IT WITH YOUR WORDS AND YOUR ACTIONS?

MAYBE YOU SAY, "BUT THEY…………….., BUT THEY WHAT? TOLD YOU THE TRUTH WHEN YOU NEEDED IT?  WOULDN'T PUT UP WITH YOUR DISRESPECT…..OR WHATEVER IT WAS TO TEACH YOU RESPECT AND HONOR?"  

IT'S TIME TO GET RID OF THE HARD HEART AND BEING A VICTIM.  IT'S TIME TO HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE PAID A GREAT PRICE, MAYBE FOR YOU. 

MAYBE YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD AND HIS PRINCIPLES, BUT THEY ARE STILL WORKING AND STILL IN PROCESS.  

THE WORD OF GOD SAYS WE ARE TO HUMBLE OURSELVES.  HUMILITY ALWAYS COMES FIRST.   THEN REPENTANCE COMES NEXT.   CAN YOU CHANGE YOUR WAYS?  YES!   HOW?   REPENT AND ASK FOR FORGIVENESS TO THOSE WHO YOU HAVE DISHONORED BY YOUR WORDS, YOUR ACTIONS AND YOUR WORKS.  THE HARDER THE HEART, THE HARDER THIS IS TO DO. 
BUT GOD WILL HONOR YOU IF YOU DO THAT.

YOU MAY BE STRUGGLING WITH THAT AS YOU READ THIS. I PRAY THAT AS YOU SURRENDER THAT HARD HEART TO GOD,  ASK HIM TO HELP YOU,  REPENT AND ASK FOR FORGIVENESS, YOUR RELATIONSHIPS WILL
BE RESTORED AND THEIR WILL BE RECONCILIATION.


GOD BLESS YOU!!!


Integrity

 



Integrity


We are under the umbrella of Christian International, Bishop Bill Hamon's ministry.   They have taught us well in the area of the prophetic and  on integrity. (Teachings on the 10 M's is great and the Pitfalls of a Prophet).  We are blessed to be under the ministry of Christian International.

Looking over the past years, I am believing for Replevin to continue into this year and years to come, and it will be Great!

I am encouraged in the Lord. 

I have been somewhat shocked at the lack of integrity amongst God's Leaders.   Pastor Tom Terry has also been a good mentor for us for the last 22 years.   His teachings on Leadership are great.  Many ministers spout off to Pastors how the sheep are not their sheep but God's sheep and basically you don't have any rights to them.  I think about the scripture that tells me that we, Pastors, are overseers and we will give an account either with joy or grief for the sheep He has given us to look after.  I believe that when an ordained minister of the Gospel spouts this kind of thing out of his or her mouth, it is coming from the heart and something is not right in their heart(s).

Over the 33 years of ministry, we have had our share of Judas' and Absaloms’, etc.    Sons and Daughters, ordained to be in our fold have left. 

Ministers that show lack of integrity will get your people's emails and try to get them on board with them, and snuggle up to them.   Their main reason is "My Ministry" and many are motivated by $$$........  Those that come into the house to minister need to 'snuggle' up with the Pastors or Overseers of that house, not the sheep in that house.

A man or woman of integrity will come in and operate under the overseer of the house.  They will have good manners; will not correct the overseers of the house or sheep of that house.  If there is something that is personally bothering them, or they have a word of correction, they will take it to the overseer of the house first.  They will not gossip to the other sheep, or other Pastors and Ministers in that area about the place they are ministering.  They will not preach from their offense, hurts, and bitterness.

I remember David saying how it hurt; the very person he sat with and ate with turned on him.   How King Solomon was sorry he showed the Queen all his 'good stuff' in the house.  I think this can be a lesson.
The Word of God admonishes leaders and sheep to beware of those who will come in and cause division, steal and lie.  There are wolves, and hirelings.  Listen, there are sheep stealers out there, and the reason is - It's all about 'My Ministry and $$".  The Word of God warns us.

When we bring in ministers of the Gospel we expect integrity and good manners, and have not always had this good experience.  When we see otherwise, we have to cut ourselves from that kind of behavior and spirit.

I know there are many ministers out there who have experienced many hurts, disillusionments and disappointments.  I just want to encourage you for this New Year.  I pray for your healing from those hurts and disappointments, and for wisdom and discernment.   David was a great man of God and he experienced it and we know Jesus did too.
                                                 
God is full of love, grace, and compassion, and included in that also is the discipline(s) of the Lord.   We love our children, but we often have to discipline them, train them and correct them.   It's not all love and Grace.
 
Honor will bring you much favor and blessings this year.  Honor those who are over you in the Lord.   Honor and respect the house God may allow you to minister in and God's Houses will be blessed.

Pastor Sandra, Word-A-Live! Church

Thanksgiving





Thanksgiving

The Word of God says, "Do not be weary in well doing, because in due season you shall reap rewards,  Iffff you do not faint." (Gal 6:9 MKJV)  But we should not lose heart in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not faint.

I know this is true.   I remember that scripture when things don't seem to be going well. 

I believe there is a store house of blessings being laid up for us and there are days when it is dry and days when it rains.  Don't be weary,  if you give it will come back to you.  We bless and give because it is in us to do that; because God is in us. 

I have been disappointed, let down, weary and tired many times.  BUT God!!!  Do not be weary in well-doing......WOW!

Many times no one knows what you do.  They judge you wrong, or they just don't know....BUT God knows.

You may say, "I hardly ever get a thanks from my family, friends,
kids,  and etc".  But, maybe they just don't think about those things.  

I was brought up to say thank you, by sending thank you notes, etc.    I was brought up to do RSV; but now a days hmm not so true.

God has blessed me with some very special friends and family,
which I so appreciate!!!    I am thankful for all my special friends and family, and you can be thankful too!!! 

Ask God to send you those special people in your life, and He will - if you will be thankful.

Do not be weary in well doing for God knows,  and if we don't faint....Pay Days are Coming!!!

Send Me Lord!!




Send Me Lord!!

Who will prophesy to the dry bones?   

We have a stardom mentality in American.  It's called "It's all about me!"

Who will minister and prophesy to the children?  Who will raise them up?  Who will plan, prepare, and pray for their revival, like one plans, prepares, and prays for themselves?  

Who, will say "Send me Lord!"?

Who will patiently minister to the youth, without being seen?

Who is willing to be a minister of Christ to World - and yet be a servant to them all?

Who?
