How important is THE WORD OF GOD!
KNOW THE BIBLE.
Daniel prayed: "Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
wisdom and power are His. He changes times and seasons;
He sets up kings and deposes them.
He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with Him.
I thank and praise You, O God of my fathers: You have given me wisdom and power, You have made known to me what we asked of You, You have made known to us the dream of the king."
Jesus replied: “‘Love The Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
That you be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
...weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of The living God.
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.
1 John 1:7

Going The Way of All the Earth - Bob Jennings
Bob Jennings preaches a message on Joshua Chapter 23.
ETERNAL LIFE ?
this site seems very nice;
"The wealth of the wicked means nothing. They have nothing.---
Without God, without forgiveness, without heaven, they have nothing.
With God we have everything and always have everything,
no matter the outward circumstances of our lives."
"For to be carnally minded is death,
but to be spiritually minded is life and peace."
"It matters little to the Lord whether He saves by the few or the many."
I Samuel 14:6
"Who has despised the day of small things?"
"Yes, it is He who will build the temple of the LORD,
and He who will bear the honor and sit and rule on His throne.
Thus, He will be a priest on His throne,
and the counsel of peace will be between the two offices."'

I'M YOUR ANGEL
DO YOU STILL BELIEVE?
by David Wilkerson
Recently I had an unusual experience while in meditation with The Lord. His still small voice asked of me, “Do you still believe?”
“Do you believe I still love you unconditionally—that you are right now being led by The Holy Spirit—that every tear you shed I bottle—that you are right now in this place, in this very hour, in the perfect will of God?
“Do you believe all things still work together for good to them that love Me—that I hear your prayers, even when you have no audible words to express them, when all seems dark and you are overwhelmed—when fear lays hold on your mind and soul—when it seems I have shut the heavens to you?
“David, do you still believe I feed all living things: the fish of the sea, the cattle, the fowls, all creeping things? Do you still believe I count every hair on your head—that I take note of every fallen bird on the face of the earth? Do you truly believe that?
“Do you still believe—when death comes to your loved ones? Do you still believe what you have testified, that I give comfort and strength to face even the grave?
“Do you still believe I love you—I forgive you all your past sins, your present sins—and I will forgive all future sins if you rest and trust Me? Do you believe I understand when Satan sends his messengers against you to implant lies, doubts, blasphemies, fears, despair?
“Do you still believe you are in the palm of My hand—that you are more precious than gold to your Savior—that eternal life is your future—that there is no power that can pluck you out of My hand—that I still am touched by every infirmity and affliction you endure? Do you still believe these things are true?”
My answer is emphatically YES! Yes, Lord, I still believe it all and more—much more!Read all of Psalm 103 and ask yourself, “Do I still believe it? All of it?”
...Do not grieve, for the joy of THE LORD is your strength*.
*a place or means of safety, protection
Nevertheless, in Your great compassion You did not make an end of them
or forsake them, For You are a gracious and compassionate God.
Now therefore, our God, the great, the mighty,
and the awesome God, who keeps covenant and lovingkindness ...
How much less when you say you do not behold Him,
The case is before Him, and you must wait for Him!
"Trust - Instead of murmuring, repent of what is past, humble thyself under God's hand, wait patiently in his way, 'till deliverance come; for it will certainly come if thou dost not hinder it."
Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary
35:14-26 As in prosperity we are ready to think our mountain will never be brought low; so when in adversity, we are ready to think our valley will never be filled up. But to conclude that to-morrow must be as this day, is as absurd as to think that the weather, when either fair or foul, will be always so. When Job looked up to God, he had no reason to speak despairingly. There is a day of judgment, when all that seems amiss will be found to be right, and all that seems dark and difficult will be cleared up and set straight. And if there is Divine wrath in our troubles, it is because we quarrel with God, are fretful, and distrust Divine Providence. This was Job's case. Elihu was directed by God to humble Job, for as to some things he had both opened his mouth in vain, and had multiplied words without knowledge. Let us be admonished, in our afflictions, not so much to set forth the greatness of our suffering, as the greatness of the mercy of God.---
1 Peter 1:13
Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
Man's goings are of The LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?
The steps of a man are from JEHOVAH; and how can a man understand his own way?
Matthew 11: 28-30
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
Take My yoke upon you andlearn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.
For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Matthew 12: 17-21
This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet:
"BEHOLD, MY SERVANT WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN;
MY BELOVED IN WHOM MY SOUL is WELL-PLEASED;
I WILL PUT MY SPIRIT UPON HIM,
AND HE SHALL PROCLAIM JUSTICE TO THE GENTILES.
HE WILL NOT QUARREL, NOR CRY OUT;
NOR WILL ANYONE HEAR HIS VOICE IN THE STREETS.
A BATTERED REED HE WILL NOT BREAK OFF,
AND A SMOLDERING WICK HE WILL NOT PUT OUT,
UNTIL HE LEADS JUSTICE TO VICTORY.
AND IN HIS NAME THE GENTILES WILL HOPE."

"Top 8 reasons why i can't share my faith. From Way of the Master Radio."
when we fail and struggle with things like witnessing
GOD doesn't love us less or is suprised with us,
no need to be discouraged or give up!
oh HOW HE LOVES US.
once in the middle of my misery because of my failure to witness
GOD showed how HE delights about me. amazing :)
Please, PRAY FOR ME. ON THIS. GOD KNOWS.
Todays Verses of the day fit nicely and PERCECTLY:
...be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you
a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.
1st Peter 3:15
Oh that men would praise THE LORD for His goodness,
and for His wonderful works to the children of men!
For He satisfieth the longing soul,
and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven.
He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good,
and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity,
but a Spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7
Withhold not good from them to whom it is due,
when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils:
freely you have received, freelygive.
from Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on Matthew 10:5-15:
Wherever they went they must proclaim, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. They preached, to establish the faith; the kingdom, to animate the hope; of heaven, to inspire the love of heavenly things, and the contempt of earthly; which is at hand, that men may prepare for it without delay. Christ gave power to work miracles for the confirming of their doctrine.
In proclaiming the gospel of free grace for the healing and saving of men's souls, we must above all avoid the appearance of the spirit of an hireling. They are directed what to do in strange towns and cities. The servant of Christ is the ambassador of peace to whatever place he is sent. His message is even to the vilest sinners, yet it behoves him to find out the best persons in every place. It becomes us to pray heartily for all, and to conduct ourselves courteously to all. They are directed how to act as to those that refused them. The whole counsel of God must be declared, and those who will not attend to the gracious message, must be shown that their state is dangerous. This should be seriously laid to heart by all that hear the gospel, lest their privileges only serve to increase their condemnation.
1 Corinthians 4:7
For who makes you to differ from another? and what have you that you did not receive? now if you did receive it, why do you glory, as if you had not received it?from Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on 1 Corinthians 4:7-13
We have no reason to be proud; all we have, or are, or do, that is good, is owing to the free and rich grace of God. A sinner snatched from destruction by sovereign grace alone, must be very absurd and inconsistent, if proud of the free gifts of God.
All Christians are not alike exposed. Some suffer greater hardships than others. The apostle enters into particulars of their sufferings. And how glorious the charity and devotion that carried them through all these hardships! They suffered in their persons and characters as the worst and vilest of men; as the very dirt of the world, that was to be swept away: nay, as the offscouring of all things, the dross of all things. And every one who would be faithful in Christ Jesus, must be prepared for poverty and contempt. Whatever the disciples of Christ suffer from men, they must follow the example, and fulfil the will and precepts of their Lord. They must be content, with Him and for Him, to be despised and abused. It is much better to be rejected, despised, and ill used, as St. Paul was, than to have the good opinion and favour of the world. Though cast off by the world as vile, yet we may be precious to God, gathered up with His own hand, and placed upon His throne.
Let those who love THE LORD hate evil,
for He guards the lives of His faithful ones
and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
Writings from Keith Green:
and a quote from David Wilkerson (from a blog post at this link):
The peace we have with God through Christ distinguishes our faith from all other religions.
In every other religion besides Christianity, the sin question is never settled. Sin’s dominion simply hasn’t been broken. Therefore there can be no peace: “There is no peace, saith The Lord, unto the wicked” (Isaiah 48:22).
But we have a God who provides peace by pardoning sin. This is the very reason Jesus came to earth: to bring peace to troubled, fearful humankind.

Hold thy peace at the presence of The Lord GOD: for the day of The LORD is at hand: for The LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, He hath bid His guests.
I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless Thy name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise Thy name for ever and ever.
However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”— the things God has prepared for those who love Him
1 Corinthians 2:9
We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him,
who have been called according to His purpose.
For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
