Who makes winds His messengers, flames of fire His ministers. –Psalm 104:4 AMP

Red Letter Words

9-11-Bible

The world is being overwhelmed by a whirlwind of words. Text, text, text. So many opinions, so few answers. When you read citizens comments on the Internet, you discover the hidden anger and frustration. We are seeing the result of this anger in the daily headlines.

“Claiming to be wise, they became fools [professing to be smart, they made simpletons of themselves].” Romans, 1:22 Amp. These words convict us, but if we are honest with ourselves, are they true?

Recently I read an article about the Pope’s visit to America. He was shown the above picture concerning the red-letter words from the Bible that were found in the aftermath of 911. They were fused to one of the steel beams from the twin towers. Is God warning us? In a small section of the picture there is a quote from the book of Matthew, the message is about building your foundation on the Rock, that shifting sands won’t survive the coming storms. (Matthew 7:26-27) Clearly you can see the word Love. Love conquers hate and anger. It is not all about an eye for an eye.

Am I just adding to the whirlwind of words? I personally have chosen to re-read the “Red Letter Words” in the Bible. Stated another way, the words that Jesus spoke.

First, the Bible makes an amazing claim. “In the beginning, before time, was The Word and The Word was with God, and The Word was God.” John 1:1 “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” John 1:14 Both of these scriptures refer to Jesus the Christ.

Could it be that this “forever word” has the answers we are all seeking? He suggests that the answer is Love, not hate. Unity not division. Our chatter matters, words can hurt.

If you are frustrated and angry, I’m suggesting you stop and read all the red-letter words in the New Testament and review your thinking and your actions. Do I practice any of His suggestions to find rest and peace? Yes! His words are an amazing Contract/Covenant with humanity.

There are so many promises filled with blessings. I am suggesting that mankind’s dry arid souls need the promises of God. Life seems so empty without HOPE.

TRY IT, IT WONT HURT, Read or re-read His red-letter words. I’ll be praying that your soul and spirit will be comforted by God’s Words of Life.

“I have come a ‘Light Into The World’ so that whoever believes on me may not continue to live in darkness.”

For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 (paraphrased)

It’s not “Whatever” it’s Forever!

It’s not “Whatever” it’s Forever!

The Snares of the Fowler

The definition of a Fowler is a trickster who uses snares to try to ensnare the unwary and bring them to ruin. The reference comes from a title for men who use tricks and traps to snare birds.

On a recent prayer mission to free souls through intercessory prayer, the Lord told me my spiritual enemy was the Fowler, Satan himself, the ultimate trickster.

Recently, I read an article from a prestigious college describing the young people living today as the ”Whatever Generation”. No concerns about eternity, just “whatever”. If it feels good do it. “That’s ok for you, I don’t need a crutch,” and “What me worry?” This reminds me of a song that was popular a few years back “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” Are we oblivious to what is really happening on Earth? The warning from Ephesians 4:27, Leave no room or foothold for the devil, give no opportunity to him. Yet I see young people involved in all kinds of satanic activities even human and animal sacrifice. It’s as if we are returning to the humanistic pagan Canaanite religious practices?

 

At the same time I see people of all ages lining up for hours to get into movies about vampires or zombies. The world in general has developed a love for the dark kingdom, especially the young, the more macabre the better. This isn’t just fun and games a warlock is a male witch. The Satanists have just erected a statue “Baphomet” in Detroit, for children to worship Satan. They are also practicing how to be Vampires. Is this what you want for your children? Have we all been tricked? Don’t be fooled, Satan hates humanity.

 

Let me give you an example of the Fowler’s work from the Old Testament Ezekiel 13:18-22 (Amp) Say, Thus says the Lord God: Woe to the women who sew pillows to all armholes and fasten magic, protective charms to all wrists, and deceptive veils upon the heads of those of every stature to hunt and capture human lives! Will you snare the lives of My people to keep your own selves alive? You have profaned Me among My people [in payment] for handfuls of barley and for pieces of bread, slaying persons who should not die and giving [a guaranty of] life to those who should not live, by your lying to My people, who give heed to lies. We say evil is good and good evil.

 

Therefore thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against your pillows and charms and veils with which you snare human lives like birds, and I will tear them from your arms and will let the lives you hunt go free, the lives you are snaring like birds. Your [deceptive] veils also will I tear and deliver My people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted and snared. Then you shall know that I am the Lord. Because with lies you have made the righteous sad and disheartened, whom I have not made sad or disheartened, and because you have encouraged and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way and be saved [in that you falsely promised him life], Therefore you will no more see false visions or practice divinations, and I will deliver My people out of your hand. Then you will know (understand and realize) that I am the Lord.

 

Here we see in the biblical text an example of black magic being used to trap human souls. Another key element appears to be lying, a very familiar tactic of Satan since he is called the Father of Lies. John 8:44 (NIV) You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

 

Other tools used to set snares were and are; false prophecy, practicing of elitism, trickery, deception, bribes, cruelty, false visions, divination and lastly, human trafficking saving their own lives by selling out others. The result of all this deception is, the wicked are strengthened and encouraged. In Hosea 9:8 (Amp) we see an example of this deception and wickedness even being practiced by God’s prophets who had fallen into the Fowler’s snare and caused others to be snared. Ephraim was [intended to be] a watchman with my God [and a prophet to the surrounding nations]; but he, that prophet, has become a fowler’s snare in all his ways. There is enmity, hostility, and persecution in the house of his God At this point God calls Ezekiel a true prophet, to bring deliverance. Psalm 91:3 ”For then He will deliver you from the snare of the Fowler and the deadly pestilence.” From my biblical examples, you can see God is aware and very displeased with humanities choice to ignore His warnings.

 

Consider what choices you have made in your own life. Have you become a victim, maybe unknowingly, to traps and snares that will impact your eternal soul? “What good for a man to gain the whole world and lose his eternal soul?”

 

Our prayer for our precious young people and for ourselves should be Psalm141:9 “Keep me from the trap which they have laid for me and the snares of the evildoers.”

 

Only you can decide if you have been trapped by the Fowler’s tricks into a life of darkness, anger, hopelessness, and despair. Many suicides result. There is no need to accept this as your fate. Ephesians 5:8 “For once you were darkness but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of Light” Jesus says He is the light of the world. Psalm 118:6 “The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Romans 8:31 “What then should we say to all this? Who can be against us? Who can be our foe if God is on our side?” Read 2nd Corinthians 2:11 “keep Satan from getting the advantage over us; for we are not ignorant of his wiles and intentions.”

 

Is it foolish to not even consider the amazing promises of God? Do we realize our eternal soul is in jeopardy? Jesus is a God of Love and Forgiveness. He is waiting for you to search for Him with all your heart!

 

It’s not whatever it’s forever!

 

My Motto: Romans 12:21 Overcome evil by doing Good!

There Is Gold In Them Thar Hills

Colossions 3:2 (NKJV) Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

A few years ago my husband and I attended a weeklong Elderhostel presentation on gold mining. We learned about Humbug creek, where in the early days of the gold rush the miners were just picking up nuggets out of the creek that were valued at the rate of six million dollars a day. Can you imagine the value of those nuggets in today’s inflated market?

A couple of years ago, a local news station covered a story where a contemporary miner brought in about thirty nuggets that were so big the assay office couldn’t weight them all at once. The scale simply couldn’t hold them. They were big beautiful gold nuggets. Yes, there is still “Gold in Them Thar Hills.” (western slang used by the gold miners).

I have a personal interest in gold. My father worked in the construction industry, building dams etc. One day my father showed me a piece of quartz that had a thin vein of gold imbedded in it. I was enchanted by it. I was about nine years old. Our family was poor, so from that day forward you could find me wading in the creeks of Oregon looking for gold. I was going to make us rich. Oh, the water in those streams was cold. I found a lot of pretty rocks but no gold. To this day if I am swimming in a river or creek I look down to see if there is a shiny nugget in the water.

At one time, an angel told me “the Earth and earthly beings are the treasure and the creation of the Christ” What if we reversed this statement and made Christ our treasure? Does the Bible have anything to say about this? The answer of course is yes. Most of us can quote the “love of money is the root of all evil” Aren’t all of us challenged by greed? Just like gold, money seems to have a fascination.

Let’s consider one of God’s conditional promises. The Holy Spirit sets forth a challenge to hunger for an eternal reward rather than a temporal one. Luke.6:24

This area of scripture in Job also contains a magnificent promise. Job 22:24-30 (Amplified) If you lay gold in the dust, and the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brook [considering them of little worth], 25 And make the Almighty your gold and [the Lord] your precious silver treasure, 26 Then you will have delight in the Almighty, and you will lift up your face to God. 27 You will make your prayer to Him, and He will hear you, and you will pay your vows. 28 You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways. 29 When they make [you] low, you will say, [There is] a lifting up; and the humble person He lifts up and saves. 30 He will even deliver the one [for whom you intercede] who is not innocent; yes, he will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands. What a challenge to live by faith rather than our own efforts.

What amount of gold is equal to one of your loved one’s souls? Luke. 9:25 We know we can’t buy salvation, it is a free gift, this “gift of pardon” purchased on the cross by Jesus for us. Can you imagine leaving those nuggets in Humbug creek and making Christ your treasure? Ex. 20:3 (NKJV)“You shall have no other gods before Me.

What price would we pay to know that God hears us and grants us His favor? Oh! Can all of us really have clean hands before God? Under certain conditions, according to the scripture, your prayers will even save the one who is not innocent because of your intercession. What a magnificent promise. Imagine your whole family in heaven with you.

Where your treasure is there your heart will be also. Matt. 6:21 NKJV
