Bear fruit or be called Loammi

We must all as children of God, as Christians, bear fruit worthy of repentance.  If we do not bear fruit, the Lord of the vineyard will cut us down and we will only be good for the fire.  The Lord will symbolically say of us that we are 'Loammi', a Hebrew word which means "not my people".

If we are not bearing fruit, we are living in sin.  It is written that living in sin, wilful sin, is the sin unto death.  We are not even to pray for someone who is in wilful sin.

So let us take heed to our Lord Jesus' words and abide in Him and we shall bear much fruit and He will say of us, these are "Ammi", "my people"!  Halleluyah! :)♥

Go down the rows of the vineyards and destroy the grapevines,
    leaving a scattered few alive.
Strip the branches from the vines,
    for these people do not belong to the Lord.
Jeremiah 5:10

And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
Matthew 3:10

Encouragement for you

Good morning everyone of you precious people!🤗Yes you are precious to God!  I want to tell you that God is so true to His word!  Today I read this Scripture in the picture and I had such joy because I was reminded of just the other day when I had the symptom of flu starting in my body, achy body all over and I take care of my sick Ma and I asked the Lord to please be merciful to me and take the flu from me because I need my strength to take care of Ma.  He took it from me.  He answered my prayer. 
Now look at this Scripture, He who takes care of the weak, "the Lord sustains them on their sickbed and restores them from their bed of illness"!  Isn't our God awesome?!
Directly translated from my Afrikaans translation it says "he who takes care of the weak".
So take heart if you are taking care of someone who is sick, the Lord will sustain you and restore you if you should get sick. Just ask Him!
Someone might say but why does He not restore the one you're taking care of.  I do not know, God only knows.  Because I do pray for healing for her, and the Lord is very kind to her, He does not heal her of Alzheimer's, but He gives her strength and sometimes a little clarity of mind that she is able to laugh with us, small things that I notice how the Lord blesses her.
But I pray everyday for THIS day, for strength for me and my Ma, because I do not worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow has enough of its own troubles.
Have a lovely day and never forget when trouble comes your way, hard times, sickness, ask your heavely Father to help you!  He wants to help us.  We only need to ask in faith.
(A follower of a famous American church told me one time on Youtube in the comments section, when I asked why do we never see Alzheimer's patients healed in their ministries and I was told to pray for my Ma and if there is no healing it may be that I do not have enough faith.)  That really hurt, because I always pray in faith.  But I also know that God does not always heal!  If God should be healing everyone all the time, then none of us will ever die!  So I may pray in faith, but it is all in God's hands and I accept when God does not heal.  I do not get angry because I know that whatever God does or does not do, His will is good and right!  He does as HE pleases and I am good with that because I know I worship a GOOD GOD!  God bless you. Be blessed and encouraged by this Scripture.♥🕊️🌹

Seek the Lord

Many refuse to come to Christ and to seek His mercy and forgiveness, that they may live. God's wrath will be poured out on them. Let us not make an idol of the world, for it cannot protect us. Only Jesus can.
Have a blessed day in the Lord. He is with you, He alone protects you, not your weapons. Trust only in the Name of the Lord your God! #Jesus

Blessed are the forgiven

In Hebrews 9:22 it is written that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness for our sins.
And the blood of JESUS was that atoning blood shed for your sins and mine. If you believe that, His crucifixion and His resurrection from the dead and #repent and you believe that JESUSisLORD, then YOU shall be saved.
Jesus saves us from the condemnation of our sins. He heals us from our sin sickness. Only Jesus can do that.
Romans 8:1 also says that when you believe, there is now no condemnation for you who are in Christ Jesus, you who walk not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
Halleluyah! Blessed are those whose sins are covered.
Thank you Jesus, thank you for what you did on the cross at Calvary, thank you for conquering death for us to give us who believe, eternal life with you, thank you Lord.✝️
God bless you today in Jesus' precious Holy Name. Amen.

Child of Zion

A year ago God used this word by Karen Grammar to speak to my heart and today again and confirming the word in Psalm 87:6-7 that I read this morning in my quiet time with the Lord. This word from a year ago is just full of NOW stuff between me and the Lord.☺️🤗💕🕊️God sees YOU! Next to your name in the Book of Life God writes: "This one was born in Zion." (That is spiritual Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem and God is speaking of your spiritual birth!) Halleluyah!

 I post the word from the Lord by Karen Grammer 18th January 2017 (a year ago).

"THE FATHER SAYS I SEE into the depths of your heart, beloved, and I know your every thought. I hear the words you speak, and recognize your voice when you pray. I know your every desire, your hopes, and your dreams; those fulfilled and those yet to come. I know the sound of your laughter; and have collected every tear you ever shed. I know your strengths, your character, and the fullness of your potential. I record all the details in your book of life. So don’t believe the lies of the enemy; that you are insignificant and irrelevant to the purposes of God? Rebuke that orphan spirit that would delay, disrupt, and destroy your destiny, in the name of Jesus! Arise and shine, my beloved, for your light {revelation; truth} has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you! Sing hallelujah!"

As He pleases

Wow, the way God speaks in answer to prayer!
I was praying today and I prayed about different things and I felt led to pray for our government, for the leaders, that God will change their hearts, convert them, bring them to salvation. That they will rule our country according to His word, His will and that many in this nation will turn to Christ.
(Many in our government are corrupt, in rebellion to God, our rulers loving dishonour.)

This is what God says to me through His word and through a commentary by John Gill (I love his commentaries):

The "shields" are the rulers of the earth. They are to be a shield to us and a protection to us. The Lord raises them up and sets them down as He pleases and their hearts are in His hands and He can convert them when He pleases and gather them into His Son and His church.

Our safety and protection is of the Lord who is King over all the earth.
Christ, who has all power in heaven and in earth is highly exalted at the right hand of God, and angels, authorities, and powers, are subject to Him.

So I will keep on praying, for they are in His hands and He is the Potter who makes one vessel of clay for honour and another for dishonour.

Thank you Lord that YOU are in control and your will is done on earth as in heaven. Amen.

Spiritual Manipulation

This post is to warn those who forward hoax Christian messages on WhatsApp or Facebook.

The following is one of those forwarded hoax Christian messages being spread on WhatsApp:
(I post verbatim.)

muslim man in Egypt killed his wife because she was reading the Bible and then buried her with their infant baby and an 8 year old daughter. The girls were buried alive! then He reported to the police that an uncle killed the kids. 15 days later, another family member died. When they went to bury him, they found the 2 little girls under the sand - ALIVE! The country is outraged over the incident, and the man will be executed.The older girl was asked how she had survived and she says 'A man wearing shiny clothes, with bleeding wounds in his hands, came every day to feed us. He woke up my mom so she could nurse my sister,' she said. She was interviewed on Egyptian National TV, by availed Muslim woman news anchor. She said on public TV, 'This was none other than JESUS, because nobody else does things like this!', Muslims believe Isa (JESUS) would do this, but the wounds mean He really was crucified, and it's clear also that He is alive! But, it's also clear that the child could not make up a story like this, and there is no way these children could have survived without a true miracle. Muslim leaders are going to have a hard time to figure out what to do with this, and the popularity of the Passion movie doesn't help! With Egypt at the centre of the media and education in the Middle East , you can be sure this story will spread.Christ is still turning the world upside down! Please let this story be shared. The Lord says, 'I will bless the person who puts his trust in me.' Jeremiah 17.. Please forward these to all on your list and GOD will reward you abundantly!!!!!!!!!!! Please finish reading before you do anything else right now. Read this to the end. My name is God. I know you will give your time for me. I love you and always bless you. I am always with you. I need you to spend 30 minutes of your time with me today. Don't pray. Just praise. Today I want this message across the world before midnight. Will you help? Please do not cut it and I'll help you with something that you are in need of. A blessing is coming your way. Please drop everything & pass it on. Tomorrow will be the Best Day of your Life. Send this to 14 friends in 10min. Tell the devil you are a blessed child of God and you have more to be thankful for than to worry about. We must go through the storm to appreciate the sunshine! This is a test to see who has more followers. God or satan. If God, forward to 14 people, if satan, ignore this! God is going to fix two things (BIG) tonight in your favor. Trust God.

My opinion about these messages:
God says do not use His Name in vain and the one who wrote this letter is using the Name of our God in vain for God did not say this.
It is spiritually manipulative.
It is turning people off from the Gospel of Jesus.
It is feeding the beast, especially when shared on FB where there is big business with these types of posts from people who make money from it.
And this story is a hoax, it is false.
Click here to read for yourself.

God calls people to Jesus through the Gospel message, not made up stories and not through spiritual manipulation in His Name.
For faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
Our blessings do not depend on whether we forward these types of posts or not.
We are blessed with all spiritual blessings because we are in Christ Jesus.
Please do not forward these type of spiritually manipulative posts.

This is posted in love only. Thank you for understanding.
God bless you in Jesus' precious holy Name.
