God sees You In Your Blood

This word will encourage those who feel like the black sheep of their family's,those who have been rejected,those who are alone and wounded,those with out hope,Those who never knew their parents, those who need a now word for your hurting and suffering, this Bloods for you.

Eze 16:1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Eze 16:2 Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations, Eze 16:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite. Eze 16:4 And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all. Eze 16:5 None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the lothing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born. Eze 16:6 And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live. Eze 16:7 I have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent ornaments: thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown, whereas thou wast naked and bare. Eze 16:8 Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine. Eze 16:9 Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil. Eze 16:10 I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk. Eze 16:11 I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck. Eze 16:12 And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head. Eze 16:13 Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom. Eze 16:14

This is a powerful word, do you feel like this? Have you every felt like this?You are not alone.There is so much bad news, hard times, the economy is soon to fall, as life as we now it, but you have a reason you were born in this time line in History, you are no mistake, God sees and loves you.

Eze 16:4 And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.
When you were born into this world your nativity,No one took the time to raise you up in Gods word, you were despised and tossed out into the world, confused,alone and afraid.

Maybe you have tried Church after church only to find they had nothing to offer you.No one knows your secret scars but the Lord.

When no one has pity on you in this life, no one cares about you ,or will help, it is as if you have been casted out of society as a whole, you feel different,odd and can not explain it.
Compassion and pity you have never felt, never experienced, only abuse from others or self.
You feel so low that you can not even look up and lift your head up when you walk, or in a crowd.
 You are in school, a Job, a gathering and you sit alone with your head down as you hope no one will notice you.
 This is how bad the verse's make it sound and that is because it is that bad.

God in His mercy and love is the one through Jesus Christ that will take care of you, raise you up properly, even if your on your 80's or just a teen.God sees, God cares and that is all that matters.

Your dreams and hopes have all vanished, all you know is What might have been, but wait,.... hear comes the Lord ,and picks you up, washes off your blood, finds you in the field of life tossed out all alone, and he comes and raises you, teaches you, cloths you.You are His and God will never let you down.

Than in the process after washing off your blood he covers you with His Son's Blood and you are made white, clean,saved and ready to live the life God has Called you to walk in.

Turn to Jesus today, wounded one, hurt and rejected one.Jesus sees you and knows all about you.No matter how dirty you feel, or bad ,God is able to do His work in your life ,if you just say, "yes Lord".

You will be clothed and in your right mind.
You want REAL compassion, pity,joy,happiness,purpose in life and a fresh new start? Well, you can today right now, just repent of your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior,  you will be a new creation in Christ.
Today is the day of salvation, why wait till things get worse, or you endure more needless Pain just take the first step home today.

If you have fallen away from God, and feel you have no hope of being restored that is a LIE. Paul said,"He was the chief of sinners."
The Apostle Peter feel away and was converted.You just need to return as the prodigal son and you will find Jesus running down the road to meet you, embrace you and FULLY RESTORE YOU.
May the Lord bless you today and I pray you will Find Christ and find your smile again.
You can walk in fullness of Joy no matter how bad things become, no matter what is ahead, you can have full Joy even in Poverty.
 Our home is not of this world and our riches are not on this earth.

No need to try and be like someone else, be yourself, you are the only one in the whole world that has your thumb print.

 God loves you and he sees you in your 'blood of sadness', sitting in a desolate field.

Who Are You Taking Advice From?

Psa 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

Many of us with out fully realizing it have been taking counsel and advice from many sources, The news, economists,politicians,well meaning family members,and other people who are not saved.

Like the song says “whos report will you believe, I will believe in the report of the Lord”.

Than there are those who are taking advice from astrologers,fortune tellers,  false prophetic web site's,numerology, on and on, there is no end to ungodly counsel.

To be blessed that is happy as the Greek reads,
From H833; happiness; only in masculine plural construction as interjection, how happy!: - blessed, happy.
Happy and blessed simple enough, but the word that eh'-sher is taken from brings out the full meaning of the word blessed hear and you will see why who you get counsel from or advice is so important.

אשׁר אשׁר
'âshar 'âshêr
aw-shar', aw-share'
A primitive root; to be straight (used in the widest sense, especially to be level, right, happy); figuratively to go forward, be honest, prosper: - (call, be) bless (-ed, happy), go, guide, lead, relieve.
Notice the underlined portions, to be straight, level, right. The CR hear would naturally be.
Heb 12:13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
Heb 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

To have a Godly walk, to run the race according to Gods will, we must first have a straight course, level ground, unobstructed, by sin, self and others advice and counsel. Only than can we go on in the blessedness of going forward, in honesty and Godly prosperity of soul and service.
Guide, Lead, relieve, these are the things that Godly counsel and advice prepare and produce for us. Words of Guidance,leading,(direction) reveal, by proper application of the bible in knowledge and wisdom.

Now hear is a bit of a twist and something to think about.

In the text verse it said the counsel of the ungodly, in context this means those that are not saved or are wolves in sheep's clothing.
A back-slidden Christian in compromise, a minister, Pastor's living a unholy life, in pride, self will, his agenda, his program and his indoctrination and cubical of devised theology.
So, hears something to think about when listening to ANYONE'S counsel or advice. This is important as you can be lead astray easily if you are looking to say, your Pastor. You may put him on a pedestal, but you may not know what he does in secret, his heart, his sin, his compromise, prayerlessness and lack of study of Gods word.

Sadly I have heard hundreds over the years come for counsel, comfort from a bad experience they had while sitting under the ministry of one that was tyrannical or controlling. Many Ministers are both of these and it is sad.

I have seen many web sites devoted just to this one matter, helping wounded sheep bruised by tyrants and dictators. I have ministered side by side as an asst. Pastor only to see these men act in such an ungodly manner and trying to bruise me! I had to step down, all their counsel and advice had only bad effects, as I have said ,'what can you give away what you do not have'?

All ministers need head the advice the Apostle Peter gave.

1Pe 5:2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;
1Pe 5:3 Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.
Ministers are not to LORD over God's Heritage, but are to be examples to the flock.
Read the Greek for a fully pitcher of the word Lord over,
From G2596 and G2961; to lord against, that is, control, subjugate: - exercise dominion over (lordship), be lord over, overcome.
Sadly most ministers do not read, or refuse to head these words of God. No man of God, no Pastor, deacon, elder, teacher are to have a spirit of Control over you, or exercise dominion over you, overcome you with a harsh temperament. They are to preach the whole counsel of God in Mercy and truth, mercy and compassion are needed in these hard times.
From such ministers or denominations flee as you will not get any good Godly advice from such men.
So, just because you want good Godly counsel, many go to their pastors and this is normal, but if he is not a humble, Godly, loving example, simply know this is not the place to get your counsel for indeed they are living and ministering in ungodliness.

Christian counselors who have been schooled in Ungodly counseling text book's and Professors will give a light word with no substance. Professional so called Christian counselors are learning things that are not biblical.

  Some courses I had to take, called Pastoral counseling and conflict management, these were truly bible based.

But I know personally Christian counselors and have seen the curriculum they are required to study and much of it is far from Christian. It is new age and humanistic diagnostic's like the bible of intake counselors and counselors themselves the famed DSM 4, this system of diagnostics is rooted in 100% humanistic doctrine. So again you may have your ears tickled and hear them talk about your low self esteem, dear Lord, we are to have a biblical low self esteem and a Godly fear, we are to be associated with being Born again and co heirs with Christ ,our Identity is in Christ and not self.
Self esteem is all about you, and can cause you to be egotistical , self centered and finally proud the original sin. You will know a tree by its fruit.

Have discernment and the word of God richly in you or you will be getting bad counsel and advice over and over. You will find yourself not going forward but backward, not being blessed from a voice saying this is the way walk ye in it.
In context, did you know that verse speaks of Godly teachers? Divide the word properly.

Beware of Christians who's advice is based on emotions only and words they say God told them to tell you.

True N.T. Prophecy is to confirm something God has already told you and should not be something that is so big a revelation you never knew it or thought of it.
I have heard many in the church give advice to someone and say God has told you to divorce your spouse and marry so and so, or to someone single ,some say God told me you are to marry so and so, usually a single friend. LOL.

I kid you not and this is a classic in Charismatic churches. Again some one may say ,God told me you are to be a missionary in Istanbul, and you are so shocked you are dumbfounded, why, IT'S NOT FROM GOD. Wake up and put on the full Armour of God the Armour of God is needed when seeking out counsel and advice believe me.

I have seen countless Christians make ship wreck of their faith because they headed wrong, UN biblical and ungodly counsel.
Remember the Lord Jesus is our Great Physician and mighty counselor.
Many times people go from person to person until they hear what they want to hear, try going to God and his word, pray, fast and cry out to God, I am 100% sure you can never go wrong this way as the Holy spirit will lead you and guide you into all truth. Do you want truth in mercy or a fairy tail or a false prophetic word, that is what you must ask yourself, Do I really want God to lead and counsel me or do I really already have my mind made up.

Remember as proverbs says 'the plans of the heart belong to man, but the Lord directs his steps'.
Also beware even the most noble well meaning Christian may give bad advice, Remember when Jesus was talking about his crucifixion and Peter replied 'may it never be Lord' and Jesus turned around and said to Peter.
"Get thee behind me Satan".
So even a disciple of Christ can be speaking, not intentionally in behalf of Satan himself.

Lastly do not think for one minute that the best advice comes from Christians who are all set materialistically, they may be the farthest from God. Worldly success many times has nothing to do with Godly success.
So, who are you getting your advice from?
I hope this post gave you some guidance and food for thought.
One note, there are many Good, Godly pastors, ministers, elders, deacons that indeed can give you some good advice, this article is not intended to make you paranoid to ask and confide in a real, holy Christian that leads by example OK just avoid the iron fist.

Dealing With Suffering

1Pe 3:14  But even if ye should suffer for righteousness' sake, blessed are ye: and fear not their fear, neither be troubled;
for righteousness — “not the suffering, but the cause for which one suffers, makes the martyr” [Augustine].
neither be troubled — the threat of the law, Lev_26:36; Deu_28:65, Deu_28:66; in contrast to which the Gospel gives the believer a heart assured of God’s favor, and therefore unruffled, amidst all adversities. Not only be not afraid, but be not even agitated.

1Pe 3:9  not rendering evil for evil, or reviling for reviling; but contrariwise blessing; for hereunto were ye called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
Heb 10:34  For ye both had compassion on them that were in bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of you possessions, knowing that ye have for yourselves a better possession and an abiding one.
Took joyfully the spoiling of your goods - They were deprived of their inheritances, turned out of their houses, and plundered of their goods; they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented. To suffer such persecution patiently was great; to endure it without a murmur was greater; to rejoice in it was greatest of all. But how could they do all this? The next clause informs us.
Knowing in yourselves - They had the fullest evidence that they were the children of God, the Spirit itself bearing this witness to their spirits; and if children than heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ.

 They knew that heaven was their portion, and that to it they had a sure right and indefeasible title by Christ Jesus. This accounts, and this alone can account, for their taking joyfully the spoiling of their goods: they had Christ in their hearts; they knew that they were his children, and that they had a kingdom, but that kingdom was not of this world. They had the support they needed, and they had it in the time in which they needed it most.

Heb 10:36  For ye have need of patience, that, having done the will of God, ye may receive the promise.
Heb 10:36 
Ye might receive the promise (κομίσησθε τὴν ἐπαγγελίαν)
Comp. Heb_11:13, Heb_11:39, and see on 1Pe_1:8. The verb implies, not mere obtaining, but receiving and carrying away for use and enjoyment.

I deeply feel we are soon to see persecution in America and it will be a shock to many who are not prepared.It is the false Prophets of old and still today that say "Peace,Peace when sudden destruction comes"

Many Are sitting under false teaching, False Prophets, name it and claim it, painless Christianity, but dear ones you will not find  this in the bible esp. The N.T. anything about living a life of ease or painless Christianity.

Many Scriptures are taken out of context, twisted or out right non biblical doctrines made up by men, some well meaning, others wolves in sheep's clothing.This will only provide you with a false hope.
Suffering for Christ, taking up your cross, going through, trouble, trials, tribulations are commanded, but how will you handle it?

The first thing most people do when something bad happens or a fiery and sudden trial comes upon you, is to blame God, or Christians or your Pastor, or Church. Many have what I call Jobs counselors syndrome, waging their finger and tongues of gossip when one is seen in a bad, bad place of Tribulation.

It is easy to think to yourself, well that person is not a real Christian, or they must have a secret sin, if that is you ,you need to repent.
 The Apostle Paul endured more hardships than all the Apostles, now days one would look at him and think, he must be in sin.

When you are being tried it is sure sign God is with you, if your living a life of ease and contentment with the way you are, beware, it is you that may not be a child of God.

Heb 12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. Heb 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? Heb 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Read that, if you are not in chastisement or never I should say, you are not a son, but a illegitimate son, bastard, you are not his.If you are living painless Christianity and all seems to go well for you,most of the time you are no threat to Satan, he does not feel you are a worthy adversary to try and hassle, another sure sign you need to examine your heart.
Paul said "I die Daily"
When is the last time you have died to self, your own plans agendas and your will? It should be a daily death and not just once a month on communion Sunday.

Those who are suffering and going through extreme tribulations,( if not due to sin) must cast all their care and anxiety on God for he Careth for you.Patience is in need of, long suffering,meekness and trust. Nothing can come upon you that God has not first allowed.

In the N.T. suffering is almost one of the main messages, Jesus spoke of it often.If you are in tribulation and you know people are whispering about you behind your back, avoiding you etc. Do as David did, He encouraged himself in the Lord.

No you are not going crazy, God loves you.
I know it is hard when you look around and it seems everyone is doing OK, but you.Listen...

God is working on some people these days seemingly over time, spiritual battle added to it can be over whelming, God is working so hard on you, because you are being and going to be blessed in a mighty way, perhaps an Early retirement from this world and a promotion to Glory in heaven, none of us know if this is our last day on earth.

I feel God is pre- paring a holy remnant of appointed vessels to be able to stand and minister in the coming hard times ahead.Many are in the seminary of the wilderness and in the fire of Tribulation, but if you yield to God and commit your self to him you will come out with a clear fresh love for the Lord, a renewed JOY of your Salvation, and a ready mouth to say 'Hear am I Lord send me'.

Once you commit to that, be assured God will send you, a ministry will open and no man can close it. the gates of hell shall not prevail against His Church and para church ministries.Seminary credentials in these hard times and the ones coming will mean nothing as people will listen if the preacher can show them their scars.It is not what you have that makes the man or women of God it is who you have that matters.

Once you go through the fiery trial you will find yourself hedge in by a ring of fire, Gods presence and protection, you will be in his presence as never before.This is the reason we are not to resist the chastisement of God, but have Patience and let Patience have her perfect work in you.

Beloved are you facing a fiery trial today? do not be afraid, nor resist it, but embrace your trial, God never purges with out a purpose.You are still in the palm of his hand, you will be more fruitful, more in love with prayer and the bible, it will seem like you have such a newness, a freshness, that it will seem like your first love, like you just got saved and you will experience the true and renewed JOY OF YOUR SALVATION.
