For those who are afflicted

Abuse is evil, and I can prove it.

When people preach their own agenda instead of telling Scriptural truth, that is spiritual abuse.  If you intend to harm someone in any way whatsoever, and then tell people you are a Christian, you are not only defaming the Lord, but you are also defaming everything He stands for. Make no mistake, abuse is evil, and this is how the Lord once handled it:

“Then He said to the disciples, “It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come! 2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. 3 Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you,[a] rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. 4 And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you,[b] saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.””

That’s from Luke 17; vs 1-4. The Lord gets extremely angry at abuse, I can promise you.

Abuse, in all its forms has nothing to do with God or Jesus Christ. The Lord offers eternal life. These people need to learn about His judgement, and repent of what they have done, if the Lord guides them to do so. In the meantime, we need to remember forgiveness, too, just as the Lord teaches us here. Part of what we call The Lord’s prayer goes: “Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.” We must never forget that this is the whole of the teaching. There’s no rebuke without forgiveness here, but abuse cannot be tolerated. It must be sorted out.

Don’t take it to the point where a millstone would be the better solution.

I came to this after reading a comment on social media.

List of things followers of Christ should desist from

I have to keep this. It’s such good teaching.


Image result for followers of christQuit expecting the world to like you.
Jesus said it would hate you (John 15:18-27, Matthew 10:22).

Quit throwing your own teammates under the bus.
We’re called to build each other up, not tear each other down. In fact, Jesus said that our love for each other proves to the world that we are really His true disciples (John 13:35, 1 Thessalonians 5:11).

Quit gossiping.
This includes sharing “juicy prayer requests” with no intention of actually praying (Psalms 34:13, Psalms 101:5, Ephesians 4:29).

Quit replacing prayer with “good vibes” and “positive thoughts”.
No. Just no. Prayer moves the hand of God and the hand of God moves the world. Prayer is much more effective than making someone feel warm and fuzzy inside. By the way, I’m not saying positive thoughts and good vibes are wrong (and they do make you feel good), I’m just saying prayer trumps them both (2…

A catch-up

I got a call on the 23rd April from the care home where my husband lived for just under two years. He died around lunchtime that Sunday and I just wanted to hug everyone there and thank them for all the caring they had provided my loved one. When I visited the next time, that’s exactly what I did.

Those first few days were strange. Yes, of course I cried, especially when I was chatting with someone about the death, but apart from the obvious, I now know what people without Christ think about death a bit more; and I know they expect us to be overwhelmed and close to collapse with grief. Thing is, with Christians, we know what happens after death, as we read the Scriptures, because they tell us what happens. Therefore, I don’t grieve as one without hope, 1 Thessalonians 4, but I look to the sure and certain resurrection when everything in heaven and earth will bow before the Lord Jesus to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2.

I know in Whom we have all believed 🙂

Since that sad day, I (ahem!) grew a new pair of legs!

My Buggy

I can now go out when I like; no longer subjected to timetables or travel costs, well, until I need to buy a new pair of batteries, but hey, I can get out again. It’s sooooooooo nice not to be housebound. Thank God I have somewhere to call home on this earth, but it is nice to get out and about, and see the old sights I haven’t seen for many, many years. I’ve been out in the rain and the sun, and ahm lovin’ it 😀

I’ve also tried again for a house move (y)

I’ve met some incredible people, either face to face or on the phone. I’ve literally been carried through the roughest part of the aftermath of the death of a family member. Of course, he is not dead at all, but alive in Eternity. The last few weeks have been a blessing to me, with the care I’ve been shown and the help that has been given, and is still ongoing. Funny thing, I got chatting to someone I’ve known for years when I visited his shop today, and I told him my former story of how we were abandoned when we cried for help. This poor man has exactly the same story, and worse, because his family were destroyed because of what they were put through. That’s something for us all to think about; just in case we ever see someone who looks angry or worn out. They just might be, and they may also be incredibly cynical. I’ve lived that life. I’m so grateful not to be living under that awful cloud no more.

Life IS precious. We ought to give thanks for every single day we are alive in, coz life is a miracle. Abba Father, thank You for Your gospel; Your Son – that You are our Father; that life is a miracle, and I’m one of the honoured chosen to live now, and in the future, with You and the rest of my Family in Christ forever.

Thank You Father for another gorgeous, sunny day 🙂 Thank You for the trip I enjoyed again, and that I have found a church to go to!

OH YEAH!!! I have to tell you guys that bit! A few days ago, I was passing the church hubby and I got married in, when I spotted a lady outside the place, doing something with a car. Putting something in the back of it, or whatever, and I caught her attention. Yes, she does go to that church. Yes, it’s all right for me to go on my buggy! Anyone can go there. So I’ve found a church, and another thing which is well weird – I’ve met someone on the home swap site who showed interest in a swap, who lives three doors down from my old address, hahahahahahahahahaha! Honestly, you couldn’t make it up.

You know, I did want just to catch up, but so much has happened, I really do need to sit down and think it all through and blog about it here. Life is sweet, my friends. There are so many surprises the Lord throws at us. If there’s one thing I wish for, it’s that I could have Hubby back in his right mind so I could share all of this with him. But anyway, I share it with the Lord, and with you who come here to read.

What an honour. I truly love You dearly, and very deeply, my Abba Father. I wish there were proper words to show You my true appreciation.

Glory to God in the highest. Life with Him is an incredible thing. Some things just make your eyes go wide, don’t they.

Brexit was just a trap. Here’s why.

Is this for real?

Denounce The Deception (UK)

Article 46A of the Treaty of Lisbon, which the traitor Gordon Brown signed in 2008, “The Union shall have legal personality” is evidence of high treason being signed and sealed by imposters within Westminster throughout several decades.

Civil obedience today is suicide tomorrow.

Legal personality is a prerequisite to legal capacity, the ability of any legal person to amend (enter into, transfer, etc.) rights and obligations. In international law, consequently, legal personality is a prerequisite for an international organization to be able to sign international treaties in its own name.

Therefore ‘legal personality’ brought the European Union into changing from an alleged trade agreement, to its intended state as a new supranational union. Which is a type of multinational political union where negotiated power is delegated to an authority by governments of member states.

That being the case in fact, Britain became a vassal state.Being a vassal most commonly…

Sick, twisted, made up

The last few chapters of Matthew spell out how God put His Son to death. We are reminded how He was mocked, tortured, and hung on that Roman tree of torture.

The cross doesn’t symbolise anything to me but torture. People not being allowed to wear it as a pendant or earrings just doesn’t matter, for crying out loud! The story of the true cross is so dreadful, some people still can’t take it. One commenter says it’s a sick, twisted story. Made up, even. I suppose that if we are angry enough, we could all think like that.

I’ll tell you the truth. I’ve been so angry lately over various issues that I even talked about this very subject in prayer. How God put His Own Son through torture so that we could be saved. I’ll be honest with you. That made me angry. You know what? It’s MY FAULT.

If no one else ever needed redemption apart from me, the whole process would have been my fault, and that act would have been done at the very same time it happened, and it would have lasted until I was eventually born and lived long enough for God Almighty to take me by the scruff of my ugly neck and spiritually condemn me, before giving me the gift of freedom. (Salvation).

Without Jesus Christ doing what He did, I would remain damned. Damned now, and damned forevermore. That’s what putting Him through what God ordered Him to go through did for me. It pulled me from the fires of damnation into the redeeming life that has set me free from eternal agony and an eternity without Him. Without worship. Without His compassion. Living like that forever, after I died.

Look at life around us. It’s dreadful in so many ways. Paul calls all of it a light affliction! Look at the current war in Syria, or the torture of people in North Korea, or look back in history and read about wars; holocausts. (There was more than one of those, people)! Apartheid in South Africa, for instance. The ongoing way people are treated in North Korea. I’m serious. Black slaves, and the lie that apparently, slavery no longer exists. Try telling that to someone looking for amnesty, and the way they are treated; ending up in slave labour, having to give all their documents away so they no longer have anything to call their own. The sex trade, and so on, and so on. No slavery? That’s the biggest lie still told today.

Look at China, and their work ethic. Our disabled wouldn’t get away with doing absolutely nothing if we lived over there. And yet, if we believe in Christ, all of it is a light affliction.

Our troubles down here affect our flesh. It’s evil when people are left to starve to death, or be left without a secure roof over their heads. It’s evil when healthcare is denied, for whatever excuse exists. It’s evil when babies are left dumped somewhere in the hope that they are found before they die.

It’s evil that people dump tiny animals, like puppies; kittens, or whatever else, and actually leave them to die. Not all are found in time. The fluffy stories you hear, or see on YouTube are the lucky ones. The videos make you feel better. You wouldn’t want to see the film I once saw, and how mainly cattle were treated before they got to your plate. I’m afraid we don’t get to see everything. If we did, I think we’d all go raving mad. So we’re spared most of the horror.

Light affliction. Well, when you link it all up with the weight of eternity, Paul is correct. For one thing, eternity, by its very definition, never ends. Anyone suffering in eternity never has any rest. Only those who have received Christ get rest. Their rest lasts forever and they are promised sin will be banished, forever.

We need to read these things in Scripture. We need to remind ourselves that if the Lord had not died, we wouldn’t have Christianity to believe in. For we wouldn’t have the living Christ of God on our side.

That’s huge. So tell people who come at you with the sick, twisted logic they make up. If God allows their ears and eyes to be opened, then that is the biggest act of mercy I can envisage. If He doesn’t, that’s the most frightening thing for the poor souls I can ever imagine.

A certain truth

…Every eye will see Him…

Those who believe in the millennium theory forget: When Jesus returns, He returns in the clouds.

Every eye will see Him as it is written.

How can that possibly happen if He is on the earth? Did every eye see Him when He came to Bethlehem, or Jerusalem? No. Only the people who were a part of those crowds saw and heard Him. When He returns, we need to remember what is written in 2 Peter 3. That chapter talks about the dreadful things which will happen to this world in the Day of the Lord, and it won’t be secret, or quiet.

The sky will be rolled up like a scroll!

There will be a noise so loud, no one will have ever heard anything like it before. The noise will be terrible. Frightening.

Christ is not coming to earth. Those who are chosen by Him will go up in the air to meet with Him, and remain, or live with Him forever.

That’s what we are told, guys! Believe it.

Perilous times

We need encouragement.

I know nobody wants to believe this, but as I’ve seen for as long as I’ve believed, so today, things are definitely much worse than they were even in 2009. Christ came to take over my life and save it in October 2009. I’ve seen such spiritual turmoil in these last few years, it gets to be depressing.

We really do need encouragement.

This film speaks volumes to me


Believers Who Have Died

13Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18Therefore encourage one another with these words. (From 1 Thessalonians 4)

Friends, our salvation is nearer today than it was when we first believed. Hold on tight. Hold on tight to the Lord.
