Debating the Truth with Others

I have written about the One True God, and have mentioned that God alone is the LORD and that Jesus is the Son of God and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, because that is what is written in the Holy Bible/Scripture. It is not me just airing my opinions on God, but my doing what God calls us to do as the disciples of Jesus, and teaching others the Truth. It is up to those who read what I wrote or hear what I say verbally from Scripture whether or not to believe and accept the Truth.

I will not alter the Truth to make everyone happy. It is my responsibility to teach the Truth as it is written in Scripture, not to please people or tell then what they want to hear. I will do my best to be kind and gentle, and will be respectful.

It frustrates me when people decide to argue about God/Jesus/the Holy Bible and accuse me of lying or offending them when I am only speaking the Truth. I do not have the authority to change facts or tailor the Truth depending what each person or group of people believes. Nor do I speak on my own authority, but what the Holy Spirit guides me to speak, or write.

Deuteronomy 6:4 says that God alone (I put emphasis on the word “alone”) is the LORD. Exodus 20:2-6 warns us to not worship other gods because He is the LORD, and is a jealous God. But lavishes His “unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love Me and obey My commands.

Getting angry with me or being offended makes no sense when I do not speak on my own authority, but speak the Truth. If anyone is angry that there is only 1 true God, take it to Him in prayer! Do not accuse me of lying or try to make me feel guilty for offending you. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs, because God gave us free will, but it is not okay to call me a liar or tell me that I’m offending them when I speak God’s Words and not my own.

Believe the Truth or deny it and believe whatever you choose to believe, but if you choose to not believe the Truth, do not make me out to be the bad guy or evil or a liar. It is a matter of respect. I respect that everyone has free will and will ultimately believe what they want to, but as a follower and disciple of Jesus, it is my responsibility to make sure others hear or read the Truth so they have all the facts to decide to keep believing what they did already, or to accept the Truth about God and Jesus and Scripture.

Anyone who does not believe the Bible or the Truth has the option not to read what I write, and also has the option to not talk about God or Jesus religions (such as Hinduism) with me. I do not like debating it because I do not have the “proof” people ask me for. It is written in Scripture that God is an invisible God, so there is no tangible evidence. The evidence of God’s existence is in the sun, moon, stars, trees and other plants and flowers, animals, and all of us human beings. God created it (and US) all. That is your “proof” that He exists. But once again, it is your choice whether to believe the Truth or not.

I pray in the name of Jesus that God open the minds, eyes, ears, and hearts of those who do not believe or accept (or know) the Truth, and bless those who do believe it and do their best to be a good disciple of Jesus by preaching and teaching the Truth to others.

I do not aim to offend anyone. I merely speak the Truth and hope those who read or hear it will believe and be saved. My deepest desire is for everyone to be saved and make it to Heaven for all eternity with God, Jesus, and those before us like Abraham, Moses, Joseph and Mar (and too many others to list) who will be spending eternity in Heaven with God the Father and Jesus the Son. If I have upset or offended anyone, forgive me. But I will keep writing and talking about the Truth and will do my best not to be harsh, but to be kind and gentle when I can be.

Status Update 

Dear faithful readers,

I apologize for being quiet lately. I was working on my collaborative book (my part of it and also keeping in contact with my co-author). And the other night my screen somehow got cracked on my laptop and I have no idea how. And tonight it wouldn’t load my desktop view but went to a white screen with the crack marks still visible, but now white with the rest of the screen instead of normal screen with black screen cracks. Book sales are not going well and I can’t work so I don’t know what to do about my laptop if it turns out warranty has expired.

Anyhow that’s what has been going on with me. My book sale is meant to end tomorrow  (October 10th), but until my laptop refused to work tonight, I had thoughts about possibly bringing out another edition, with same stuff but a bit more…like stuff about bullying, and anything else God would have me add to it. And if I were to do that, it’d make more sense to leave my current ebook edition as is with current reduced price added just make the 2nd edition $3.99 instead. But we will see… 

I need my laptop to write!! I tried writing info to add to my collaborative book here on my phone and it is very frustrating.

On a slightly brighter note, I am thankful for the church congregation I moved to earlier this year. They are kind, most are really compassionate, and they have helped me help my friend. My fundraiser got nothing because no one online wanted to help, but the members of my church gave what they were able to! I am so thankful to God and to everyone who gave and to the woman who helped me with collections.

I will still be doing # HurricaneRelief for #Texas, #Florida, and depending on book sales possibly other places effected by hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes, or fires. So far, only 3 sales and a few pages of my ebook read for free on #KindleUnlimited so only $2.50 to give so far…if people open their hearts and minds to learn more about Jesus and God and God’s loving nature and decide to get my books and read it, then they will also be helping me better help with hurricane relief. 

I don’t pretend to know everything about God or Jesus or Scripture, but I did share what I’ve learned so far with everyone in the book with my experiences I turned into advice with Scripture that goes with the subject or topic. And for those who do know Jesus but need hope to get through difficult times and/or stronger faith, depending how long your own walk has been with Jesus, my book could help, possibly. My writing style is kind of free style but I’ve seen other authors use the same or similar writing style and they are doing well so I’m hoping people can focus on the messages and advice the Holy Spirit helped me write with God’s Word (Scripture) and find something in my book that is helpful to them, even if just the knowledge that they are not alone in their struggles, and that Jesus does love them unconditionally.

Have a blessed week all! 

May the LORD bless you and protect you. May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you. May the LORD show you His favor and give you His peace.Numbers 6:24-26.

Sale on my eBook version of How to Live a Godly Life: Things I Learned in my Walk with the LORD, Hurricane Relief info, And Message to All about Jesus and God’s Love for EVERYONE

Dear faithful readers,

For a limited time only, get my book for $2.99! Draw closer to & help me support ! No I have not forgotten! Whether you buy my eBook or my paperback https://www.amazon.com/How-Live-Godly-Life-Learned/dp/1975611586/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1506396848&sr=8-1, I will donate 50 cents to $1 (depending how many people buy my book in whichever format suits them best) for Hurricane Relief.

My book is for those seeking Truth, Jesus/God, who need hope or encouragement, and/or stronger faith. If you have no interest in reading about God or Jesus, you have the option to not read my posts and to not get my book. However, my desire is for everyone to know Jesus and to know Jesus loves him/her unconditionally and loves everyone and wants a relationship with you (if you do not already have one with Him)! I want us all to be united as one in Christ Jesus our Lord.

And at the present time, I also desire to help people in need of hurricane or other crisis relief, whether friends like my friend Kristi, or strangers – or any of you, my faithful readers if you or someone you know is in need of hurricane, flooding, fire, earthquake, or tornado relief! I will continue praying for everyone too.

For those who are in need, remember God’s promise in Zechariah 9:12.

For anyone who needs to hear it: “I have loved you with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.” Jeremiah 31:3

To everyone: May the LORD bless you and protect you. May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you. May the LORD show you His favor and give you His peace.” Numbers 6:24-26

It is not too late to form a right relationship with Jesus (my book lists the 5 steps from 1. hearing God’s Word to 5. being baptized then receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit), if you do not already have one! But I caution any of you who think there is more than 1 way to Heaven/God: Jesus said in John 14:6I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the father except through me.” So to have a relationship with God, you must have a relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior who died for us on the cross to save us and was raised to life 3 days later to reconcile us to God.

For those who are already in a right relationship with Jesus, but get discouraged at times: remember God and Jesus love you always, no matter what! Nothing you say or do can make Them love you more or less than they do right now because “Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8. And remember God’s promise in Deuteronomy 31:6,8 and Jesus’ promise in Matthew 28:20b which both promise They are always with us, so God and Jesus are always with you.

September 12, 2017

I just got a mean and spiteful comment from someone.

Let me make something crystal clear to you (the jerk who tried posting a rude unkind and probably untrue comment on my previous post), and to anyone like him who does NOT have Jesus in their heart or lives:

I write for Jesus and for those who are interested in hearing the truth about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Holy Bible and myself the Scripture contained in it. I write for those who have Jesus in their hearts or who want to have Jesus in their hearts and part of their every day life. 

So if you have no interest in hearing or reading about anything having to do with God or Jesus then you have the option to keep scrolling and to the not read my blogs. But I posted a few years back that I will not tolerate unkindness or rudeness or anyone being mean, and I’m not about to change that now. If you aren’t interested in God or Jesus or anything the Bible has to say, don’t read my blogs. And if you do read it and have nothing nice to say, then don’t say anything at all. I don’t write to please everyone, I write to please God and to share my experiences in my walk with Jesus, and to teach those who don’t know the truth but want to, and who seek the truth and who need encouragement and to know they’re not alone in their struggles and who need to know no matter what they do, Jesus loves them and forgives them when they confess their sins (1 John 1:9).

To my faithful readers who keep coming back, and to new readers who will come back in the future, I truly am thankful to God for you. May God bless you greatly! 

Haters back off! 

I pray in the name of Jesus for God to open the minds (remove the veils), hearts, eyes (remove the scales), and ears (remove the plugs from them) of those like the person who left me a hateful comment that I immediately deleted, and also do this for him as well. I know your will is for everyone to be saved (2 Peter 3:9), and that nothing is too hard for You (Genesis 18:14). 

I also so pray for peace of mind also land heart and to not be so sensitive to the negative and hurtful things others say to or about me.

I also pray for unity in Christ with all believers, and that all who are not currently with tooling she LORD to open their minds and hearts, believe and accept Your Truth, which is the only real Truth, and turn their lives around and their hearts to follow Jesus and live for Him. Let things like hate, greed, selfishness, and the problems of the world created by these things (like hate crimes and terrorism and murder, and also sickness, disease, pain, and broken relationships and so on and so forth) melt away and let everyone be united in Christ and show themselves and one another the love of Christ and let us all live in peace and harmony together. I offer all prayers in Jesus’ name!

Dear faithful readers,

I did another reading from my book How to Live a Godly Life: Things I Learned in my Walk with the LORD. This time I picked 2 paragraphs from 2 separate pages from my book to make the reading a bit longer. I apologize in advance for how low my voice is in the video. I listened to it and you can hear me, so I hope no one has trouble hearing me as they watch! Everyone had just gone to bed when I did this video reading an hour ago.  2 Scriptures I quote in my reading tonight are from Psalms 103:8 (1st paragraph I read) and Isaiah 26:3 (2nd paragraph I read from).

God is not angry with you! He loves you, unconditionally! And He wants to protect you and give you peace!

Off Topic…

I am relieved that Hurricane Irma is almost gone now, and will continue praying for Florida, Georgia, The Carolinas (North and South), and everyone else affected! I am also continuing prayers for Texas and Louisiana and everyone else affected by Hurricane Harvey.  I will not stop praying until all hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, flooding, and fires are gone and the people affected do not need prayers anymore.

Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners who still have hope. I promise this very day that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles.Zechariah 9:12

Dear Faithful Readers,

I was inspired by someone else to read aloud from my book! I picked a paragraph about God’s and Jesus’ love for everyone! This could be the first of a few more if people actually want more and let me know by viewing this video and either liking or commenting or both! I want the whole world to know God and Jesus exist/are real, love them/everyone, feel encouraged and grow stronger in their faith!!!!!! If you need any of these things then I recommend reading my book, and read it with your Holy Bible or bible.com /Bible app via YouVersion for cellphones, iPads and other Tablets!

Short Reading from How to Live a Godly Life: Things I Learned in my Walk with the LORD

I quoted Jeremiah 31:3 and a couple of other verses about God’s and Jesus’ love! God bless and may His peace be with you!

P.S. Is there anyone who wants to read my book, but cannot afford it right now because money is tight? Money is super tight for me, but I can afford to give 1 person a free eBook version of my book to read on their Kindle if they give me their email address to send it to them as a gift! If you do, 1st person that sends me their email address (I think there is the option to email me here, isn’t there?) in response to this will get the free copy!

P.P.S I am still praying for everyone being affected, or who was, by any hurricanes or natural disasters (including tornadoes and earthquakes), flooding, and/or fires. My faithful readers are included if any live in any states or countries affected by any of these things! I also pray for all of my readers constantly thanking God for you and praying for your well-being, peace, and other stuff you may stand in need of!

More on Bullying

Dear Faithful Readers,

I keep hearing or reading about more people being bullied, and a lot of them are adults being bullied by other adults. I wrote a whole post with friends on the subject and #bullying is never okay under any circumstances.

I just did a video talking about it: https://vimeo.com/233074291

I am considering putting my part of the bullying piece I wrote with some friends in my book and then adding some stuff like Scripture and Jesus’ and God’s view on bullying, since They are also against it.

The prophet Elisha got severely mocked by a group of boys and got eaten by two bears, in 2 Kings 2:23-25.

Jesus endured being mocked and bullied for us on the cross before He died and went up to Heaven, but that does not mean that God or Jesus were okay with it.

In Galatians 5:19-20, where the list of following your sinful nature’s desires is mentioned it talks about hostility and dissention, and I would think bullying falls under 1 or both categories and the apostle Paul warns us that such people will not inherit the Kingdom of God. He also warns us in Ephesians 5:4 to stay away from “obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes” and a little before that in Ephesians 4:29-32 about not using foul or abusive language and getting rid of all harsh words and evil behavior and instead being forgiving and tenderhearted and using words to encourage and build other people up.

The term “bullying” may not be found in these Scriptures (though mocking is similar to bullying, the way the boys were doing it in 2 Kings 2), but it is covered within the text that is used, if you dig deeper and fully understand the whole context of what Paul is saying.

When you bully someone, you make the person feel small and worthless, and kids/teens and even adults have taken their lives because they couldn’t take the bullying or how it made them feel and they felt like it was the only way out. Others have come close to suicide and/or suffered major mental breakdowns because of bullies. Bullies: you need to understand that your words and actions do affect others, and you know that’s your intent. But do you realize how deeply and badly you affect your victims? It needs to stop!

To anyone reading this who has ever suffered from bullying: You are not alone! I have been there, and even in present time there are days where adults who ought to know better bully me anyway. Know also that #Jesus is with you and that He loves you unconditionally! He sees you as fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalms 139:14 NIV) and as God the Father’s masterpiece (Ephesians 2:10 NLT). There is hope, when it is anchored to Jesus.

I want to do something to help end bullying but since I am unable to work and book sales are not going well, I am very limited in what I can do. But if there is ever anything I can do then let me know, please! I want to help!

Off topic: I am continuing to #pray for everyone in Texas, Louisiana, everywhere else affected by Hurricane Harvey and for people experiencing Hurricane Irma and the other Hurricanes that have formed, and Florida, Georgia, and everywhere else expected to be hit by one or more of these hurricanes! Please continue to pray with me for everyone! And let us also pray for one another where the bullying is concerned. Let us pray for the bullying to stop, for God to deal with them and let us pray for the bullies to turn to God and give up their evil ways and be saved and live for Jesus! God bless to you all!
