What are Scoffers?

My Photo of some lovely Daisy Flowers with a Bee after the Nectar

Jude: Verse 18

They said to you,

“In the last times there will be scoffers

who will follow their own ungodly desires”

***

Please help me today God not to follow my own ungodly desires. May your Holy Spirit guide me into all righteousness and truth. Amen.

‘Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’

Well what does it mean to be a Scoffer, what does it really mean in our lives today. In the Dictionary it says “to speak about something in a scornfully derisive way”

So that means if we ridicule a person or a thing we are being a Scoffer, that does not sound like a very nice thing to do, especially about our family members. Or if we ridicule our children or old people, people with disabilities i.e. deformities, deafness, failing eye sight, poor academic schooling.

As a Christian we can be free from being a Scoffer if we choose to not be one, therefore we need not follow our ungodly desires. It is difficult I know not to follow an unholy desire but we do need to think about these things. We need to realize that in Christ Jesus we have been set free if we choose to be.

So here is a Poem that I wrote because it is lovely to feel set free from awful worldly desires – even if it is only now and then that we can Pray this Poem as a Prayer to thank The Lord Jesus that He did come to set us FREE. !!!

Let us feel FREE and soar like the Eagle into the Heavenly Realms in our Prayer time with The Lord.

I am Free

I am free, Praise The Lord I am Free.

How am I free, free to Laugh.

Free to Sing, free to Walk

Free to run, free to Pray,

Free to talk, free to eat

Free to drink, free to play

I am free, free – Free.

Yes Free to feel the Breeze on my face.

Free to feel the Sand on the Beach,

Free to Swim in the Ocean,

Free to appreciate the Sky

The Beautiful Sunsets.

Free to watch the Lightening in the Thunderstorms,

Free to hear the Thunder.

Yes I am Free to walk with Jesus – with God my Father in Heaven

Free to appreciate the Holy Spirit in my life

Free to receive all my Blessings

From our Heavenly Father.

Yes I am Free because

Jesus is my Lord and Saviour. Amen.

* I am Free to Praise The Lord *

I hope you may find this little book helpful to purchase as a gift for yourself or a new Christian friend to help them.

May God Bless you Today and Always.

Speak Up for Others

This is one of my Oil Paintings. We do need to pray for the Children of this World.

Proverbs: Chapter 31 verse 8

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute”

We do need to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, especially the little children, the babies, the unborn that people want to abort. Speak up for those who cannot speak, pray for them , don’t let the devil have them. Pray for those in the world who are destitute, that they may come to know Jesus today.

Taken from the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’

Each of us has a Guardian Angel

Well we do not just have to Pray for the Children of this world but as Proverbs: 31 v 8 says – we should speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. I think that means for some of our family members, also people who are incapacitated, those who need help in their everyday living. Young people, old people, those who are too ill to talk or to ask for help.

Let us be the ones to Speak up for some of those that we know of and others we do not know but have heard of in some of the War Torn Counties in this World. If we cannot Speak out for any of those who are destitute and need of help, let us Pray for The Lord Jesus to raise up someone who can.

Let Us Pray: Please Lord Jesus Help those who cannot help themselves. Amen.

* I hope you have a lovely day today *

Our Soul is Special

May our Soul be Gentle

Galatians: Chapter 5 v 16.

So I say, live by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

Dear God help us today not to gratify those desires of the flesh that are not right by you. We do need your help God, we cannot do any thing good by ourselves without You and Jesus, by the help of your Holy Spirit. Amen.

Taken from the Book ‘Drink from the Cup’

Let us be Gentle as a Dove.
This is one of my Oil Paintings.

So where are we at today then? What desire of the flesh are we thinking of today to do that we should not do? Are we going to argue with our friends and neighbours, gorge ourselves with unhealthy food, try to steal from the Supermarkets, or take money that we are not entitled to. There seems to be a lot of unholy desires of the flesh including coveting our friends husband or wives, getting drunk and disorderly, taking people to court for no good reason to do so except to satisfy our own thinking that we are right and they are wrong.

Today let our desire be to please God our Heavenly Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit.

Maybe we can do something nice for someone (God would be pleased about that) what can we do then for them? One good thing do do is to pray for whoever comes to mind or whoever we meet during the daytime. No need to stand and pray so that they can see, it is best to pray privately in our own Prayer time with The Holy Spirit.

I Pray you have a lovely day * today *

May God our Father in Heaven Bless you and your family wherever you are

Love each other as Brothers

In the Bible it does say to love each other as Brothers – that does mean I believe as Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus.

Hebrews:Chapter 13 verse 3
Keep on loving each other as brothers.

*

Today let us keep that commandment of God to love our Brothers as ourselves. How much more peaceful our day will be when we have no malice or hate in our hearts toward our Brothers and Sisters, just the love of The Lord toward them.

The above was taken from the book ‘Drink from the Cup’ Well – what do you think about loving others as Brothers and Sisters even those that are not very good towards you? I think it is good to pray and ask our Heavenly Father to help us to be nice to them.

Maybe you are my Brother or Sister in Christ.

Do you know that Jesus is our Brother, If we are a Christian we are part of Gods family, so if we are Brothers and Sisters in Christ that means that yes, we can all Jesus our Brother. That really is an awesome thought don’t you think?

Let us look after our Brothers & Sisters

Here is a link you may like to see of the Book that was written for my Family: https://www.amazon.com.au/Jessies-Story-Jessie-Larman/dp/0987207555

I Pray that you have a lovely day and can give a thought to your Brothers and Sisters whether they are Christians or not. How lovely to think of those that have gone before us to Heaven and think about them sometimes with love in our hearts for having known them as part of our family.

May God our Heavenly Father Bless us today as we walk with Jesus and The Holy Spirit.

Let’s do Something Nice Today

The Flowers above look beautiful. It is also beautiful when we do something nice for someone.

1 Samuel: Chapter 1 verse 18

She said, “may your servant find favour in your eyes” Then she went her way and ate something and her face was no longer downcast.

***

Today, let us too find favour in Our Father God’s eyes, let us think of something nice to do for Him today, then we too can celebrate with something good to eat and our face need not be downcast.

You may like to read the above Scripture in your Holy Bible. It is quite interesting.

The story is about Hannah the Mother of Samuel who was praying in her heart to God in the Temple. As her lips were moving they thought she was drunk as no words were coming out of her mouth.

It is good to remember that we do not always have to pray out loud for our Father in Heaven to hear what we are praying and hoping for in our hearts.

Maybe today we can do something nice for someone, then we need not feel downcast……(that’s if we were in the first place) But what ever we do – it should be done for the Lord. It could be just a kind word for someone, or a phone call to keep in touch. If we help someone in anyway at all that would be a blessing for them. So if Jesus is your Lord and Saviour – what a lovely thing to do something nice for Him today. One Special thing to do is to pray for someone and ask that God would kindly bless them. They do not need to know that you have prayed for them. God our Father in Heaven will hear the prayers of your heart just as He did with Hannah, Samuel’s Mother as it says so in The Bible.

Hear is a link to – Book of Prayers – this is a help for people who are not sure how or what to pray for and a reminder to some of us that there are other things and people that need our prayer. I hope it will be useful to many especially to new Christians if they cannot find the help they need.

Just a pretty Flower Bud

*** I Hope you have a lovely Day Today Something nice that I can say for you Today is May God Bless You with Contentment Today and Always. Amen. ***

Do you really know Jesus?

Jesus as the Good Shepherd. This is one of my Paintings.

1 Corinthians Chapter 8 verse 6.

There is but one Lord,

Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

The above is of course taken from the Holy Bible. Just imagine that everything that has been made has been made by God our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ His Son. So we did not evolve from anything, we are made in the image of the man Jesus. He did not evolve from an Ape or anything else, he was born as a baby and grew into an adult man. Each evolves after it’s own kind. Just think an Oak tree cannot from it’s seed turn into an Apple tree. Even as man is born from the first man and woman that God made on this earth. So there we are (how about that then)?

Here is one animal (a Kangaroo) specially made for our harsh climate here,
that I decided to paint.

I hope you have a lovely day in the knowledge that you and I are made in the image of God who loves us just as we are. Know that we did not evolve from some odd source and let us be glad.

Shall we walk in Love?

Shall we walk in Love with our Family and Pets?

2 John: Chapter 1 verse 6

And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love.

Please would you help me to walk in your Love today Lord! Amen.

Well it would be nice if we could do just that and walk in Peace and Love with our Family and Friends one day at a time.

Here is a Poem taken from the Book of ‘Verses’ by J. M. R. Larman

God’s Love

Can it be Lord, that you love me, as I sit and wonder about Eternity?

One day I should be there with Jesus my Lord.

Who, I know by your Angels God  –  is truly adored.

Almighty God, Ruler of the Universe, how can it be that you think of me?

Small and insignificant that’s who I am.

Yes, you sent your Son Jesus to rescue even me.

It is beyond my comprehension to consider these things.

So I shall sit in Your presence and pray to believe in your unconditional love.

Love full of peace. Love without Measure.

Poured down upon us, as we sit, stand or kneel,

in wonder and praise at your Glorious Presence

in Eternity.

I Pray that you have a Lovely Day Today walking in the Love of The Jesus and in Fellowship with The Holy Spirit *

It is Lovely to be Content

Lovely Flowers can make you feel content

1 Timothy: Chapter 6 verse 6

But godliness with contentment is great gain.

***

To be content is something wonderful, we are to be content in all circumstances but most times we are definitely not! What do you think is the reason why we are not content? Could it be that we are not walking in godliness? I think that may be a lot to do with it. whatever is going on in your life today try to be content with what you have, try not to yearn for things that cannot be. Let us praise The Lord for what we already have.

A Snow Flake Pattern

We are all individuals, all different as people, just as snowflakes are different but are still snowflakes. God made everyone according to a pattern. So we are made, according to a pattern. We are made in the image of God.

Well there we are then, we need to be content with being who we are especially knowing that God has made us to be who we are. So let us try to be content today in the knowledge that Jesus loves us and has sent His Holy Spirit to help and enable us to try to be content while we live on this Earth. Let us appreciate our Families and Friends, our Workmates, our Pets. Let us be content just where we are and then we can feel the peace of The Lord in our daily lives.

HAVE A LOVELY DAY * GOD BLESS YOU *

Walk in Love

What a beautiful Wild Looking Sunset

2 John: Chapter 1 verse 6

And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commands. As you have heard from the beginning, His command is that you walk in love.

***

Yes you are a God of Love and to love you means just what the above verse says – that we walk in obedience to your ways. We can only do that when we have invited Jesus into our lives and we live in your Kingdom on this earth. Praise you Heavenly Father that you enable us to walk in obedience today.

We can walk in love with our family. What better love than to walk in Gods ways with our Love ones, today and always.

It may seem odd to think that to walk in Love with the Lord is to walk in Obedience to Him. The only way really that we can do that is to read our Holy Bible to see how! It is good to read part of the Bible each day – part of the New Testament of course but not to neglect reading part of the old Testament. Just a small bit each day is better than not at all. You could of course read one of the Psalms sometimes for something different to read. It is always special to find a quiet time during the day to sit and read even a few verses of a Psalm.  

I hope you have a lovely day trying to walk in Love with your family and friends so that you know that you are walking in Obedience with God – because that shows that you Love Him our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ our Lord and The Holy Spirit. (The Holy Spirit will help us to be obedient if we ask Him to)

Good Health

Here is some Good News for Today.

John: Chapter 9 verses 1 – 3 

And as Jesus passed by, He saw a man which was blind from his birth. His disciples asked Him, saying Master, who did sin, this man or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents; but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

If we think about this, surely we can praise God for the things that He allows to go wrong in our bodies so that we can come to know Jesus through the healing He has received for us on the cross and be glad that Jesus is our healer. We need to come to know God our Father more and more each day, He wants us to give him praise and thanks for healing us to know that He is God and He is in control of our lives, that he loves us and wants us to be made whole. We do need to pray and ask, then to receive our healing and thank Him for it.

Well we know that we can’t talk to God on the mobile or landline phone but we do have a Hot Line to God and that is the Prayer Line. We can  use this Prayer Line day and night. i.e. Twenty Four hours a day as God our Heavenly Father is always available when we pray through Jesus Christ our Lord. If you have any sort of problem or aches and pains please remember to use the Prayer Line right where you are, you do not have to sit in Church to specially Pray you can sit in your own lounge room or outside or wherever you may be – on the bus, in the train, on the plane – in the town or the country side. Remember it is not compulsory to kneel and pray as that is not always convenient, also to pray out loud or in your heart is O.K. as our Father in Heaven will still hear your prayers if they are relevant.
