The TRUTH about Tito from GOD

Friday, August 29, 2014

THIS BLOG IS VERY, VERY LONG!

I copied part of what I wrote in response to the Aug 26 Devotional in the KEEP WALKING WITH JESUS SparkTeam!

I needed the beginning, in writing, as inspired by the HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD, to always have the TRUTH in front of me, LEST I DENY, as I have the last 8 years!


As the day progressed, I added a teaching to this! I was strongly compelled, again by the SPIRIT of GOD, to write this down! SP Blogs are my only avenue, less with a pen, on notebook paper!


Hiya Herb!

I've spent a couple of minutes so far this morning going back on posts and reading the WORD OF GOD, and your teachings! I felt compelled to thank you especially for your post Aug 26!

I AM NOW SO AFRAID TO DIE! I didn't use to be as a Christian! But now, especially since my DH, who has studied the Bible (almost all of it the OT) for 40 years, tries to teach me that the spirit of a man, stays with the body in the grave, until JESUS returns to judge us.

I believe Tito is, especially in this case, a FALSE TEACHER (2 Peter 2:1).

I don't believe Tito is a true believer in JESUS CHRIST, is saved, and a friend of JESUS. He only started telling me he was a Christian the last year or less. He has denied this for 9 years, and says he still believes NO ONE is wrong in their beliefs, non-Christians, Buddhists, Athiests, Islams, etc.

The Bible says JESUS CHRIST is the LIVING WORD of GOD, and is TRUTH! JESUS clearly states in the Bible, John 14:6, "I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE:...

...NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER, BUT BY ME."

This EXCLUDES everyone who doesn't believe He is sent by the Father, is His SON, and has been planned by GOD all along, to pay GOD's PENALTY for sins, in my place! emoticon

GOD has also shown me in the Bible he is a FALSE PROPHET (Matthew 7:15) ;a RAVENING WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING (Matthew 7:15); A CORRUPT TREE BRINGING FORTH EVIL FRUIT (Matthew 7:17) 'BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM." (Matthew 7:20).

False prophets are also discussed by JESUS in Matthew 24:11 and 24 when JESUS tells His disciples about His coming again and of the end of the world (Matthew 24:3).

JESUS says "many FALSE PROPHETS shall arise and deceive many." (Matthew 24:11); JESUS continues in chapter 24 until He gets to verse 24 where He says "FALSE CHRISTS and FALSE PROPHETS shall rise and shall 'SHOW GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the VERY ELECT.'"

I have seen Tito do these great signs and wonders, by the power of satan, to scare me and confuse me. He calls me WRONG, SEEING THINGS, CRAZY, BIPOLAR (which I am!), and PSYCHOTIC, in need of more psychiatric help and more Bipolar medication!

I BECOME AFRAID HE WILL TRY TO HAVE ME COMMITTED TO THE STATE PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL and I become QUIET, as most psychiatrists don't understand spiritual matters!

The truth is, as is taught by the Bible, that JESUS told one of the two criminals crucified next to Him, "...today thou shalt be with Me in Paradise." Because of this very scripture, I believe that Paradise is where we, as Spirit, go when we die, leaving the body, and is a different place than Heaven. We go the very day, our body dies and this scripture states that JESUS is there waiting for us!

The Apostle Paul confirms this in 2 Corinthians 5:8 when he says when we are present with the Lord, "WE ARE ABSENT FROM THE BODY".


I have undergone DRAMATIC changes since I accepted Christ into my heart 19 years ago! Most significantly, in the last 6 months, it seems as if suddenly, "the old has passed away and, BEHOLD, ALL things have become NEW"! I, AM, as the Bible promises, "A NEW CREATURE IN CHRIST" 2 Cor 5:17! As I said, the change SEEMS sudden, but it has been slowly and surely happening each day I've BELIEVED IN JESUS for 19 years!

I had to take this scripture in FAITH all these years! NOW, I'VE EXPERIENCED THE TRUTH OF IT!

I HAVE BECOME A TRUE SERVANT OF GOD AND "FINALLY" A TRUE FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST BY GOING OUT INTO THE NATIONS and trying to make disciples, TEACHING! (Matthew 28:19 - 20) GOD called me to be a teacher early in my walk with JESUS in 1995!

I also FOLLOW JESUS now by beginning to preach the Gospel! (Mark 16:15) I've started online!

As per Luke 24:47, I've understood JESUS wanting me to preach REPENTANCE for the last 2 years, as John the Baptist did in the wilderness, right before He baptized JESUS! (John 1:19 - 34)

REPENT!

And recently, to preach the REMISSION OF SINS by CONFESSING OUR SINS TO GOD.

Finally JESUS tells Peter in John 21:15 - 17 to "FEED MY LAMBS" if he (Peter) loved Him, verse 15; to "FEED MY SHEEP", again, if Peter loved Him in verse 16; and finally after asking Peter if he loved Him for the third time, in verse 17. Again "JESUS tells Peter to "FEED MY SHEEP" after Peter answered yes for the third time when JESUS asked "Do you love me?"

I understand LAMBS to be NEW BELIEVERS, "or Baby Christians", in JESUS CHRIST and SHEEP, simply as BELIEVERS as JESUS calls His disciples in the Gospels of MATTHEW and JOHN! JESUS then tells us He is the GOOD SHEPHERD in John 10:11. I don't, yet, understand why JESUS repeats Himself in verse 17 .

Tito and I have been married 10 years. BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD, I ,in my heart, believe GOD as God has shown me for the last 8 years when I really started to study and walk with JESUS. GOD has shown me Tito is a wolf in sheep's clothing and "a producer of bad fruit" (By their fruits you shall know them!) When I try to find "us" in the Bible, I find us in 2 Tim 3:5 and 6. I used to also find me EXACTLY in verse 7 for the first 11 years of my 19 years of my Christian walk.

I do believe satan, the enemy of GOD and me, especially targeted me in 2004 when Tito and I met and I was too open with him. He tries, through Tito, to take me away from JESUS! Tito's and my "conversations"about GOD, that 1st night, is what attracted me to him in the first place! I thought he was sent by GOD and I had found my soul mate.

As much as satan tries, the Bible declares GOD has great plans for my life! GOD says in Jeremiah 29:11:



Coming into fellowship with JESUS has been most difficult all these years, but I've always sought Him with my whole heart! But that's a whole story in itself!

Then WHY do I give the devil, Tito, and lies, the time of day?
Because I haven't been SURE! emoticon

But after spending ALL day on this blog, 30 HOURS, and in the WORD of GOD, referencing the Bible as the HOLY SPIRIT has taught me today and brought to my remembrance scriptures I've learned and studied, that GOD has written on the tablets of my heart!

I've BECOME CONVINCED in the TRUTH I KNOW IN MY HEART and of the LIE, as told by satan and Tito!

I AM NO LONGER AFRAID! And I know who Tito is, from whence he comes, for what purpose, and who his father is!

emoticon HOLY SPIRIT of GOD!

    Trust me none of us are perfect and if you Love Jesus and do everything to follow him the devil is right on your heels to mess it up. This is why it is so important to stay close to him so the devil can`t reach you. We all will go though the storms and wilderness at some point and he will bring us out as we continue to seek him. You can not walk by faith and not go though the storm. I do know another thing do not ever judge anyone heart. Always ask how they feel about Jesus. You may be surprised at there answer.

    I also reference John 14:1 - 4 when I try to correct him and "teach" him the "real" TRUTH and deny the lie from satan, that he either actually believes or purposely teaches to mislead many, Matthew 24:24! Yes, I forgot I see him here too! He even shows signs and wonders that he denies! HE SAYS I'M CRAZY! Of course he hears me not! Of coarse his ears closed.

I BELIEVE WHO HE IS NOW, FROM WHERE HE COMES, AND WHO IS HIS FATHER!

Now, I have more TRUTH in 2 Cor 5:18! FOR ME, not him, as I've BECOME CONVINCED in all my writings, by inspiration of the SPIRIT OF GOD this morning to you!

This belief is not at all new, it's 8 years old, but I share it with him, and I allow him and satan to convince me not, to convince me that its THIS belief that is from satan and not GOD, to pull apart what GOD has brought together. For GOD's sake, I was drunk when I met him, having just stolen 2 six-packs of beer and we walked and talked of GOD!!

INSANE!!

    In the end, I worry not, as I stand firm in faith with the WORD OF GOD which says that GOD SAYS "TOUCH NOT MINE ANOINTED and do my prophets no harm." in 1 Chronicles 16:22.

I believe that GOD ALMIGHTY, my FATHER, protects me from real harm in my denial!

THANK YOU JESUS! emoticon

The Dead in Christ

Friday, August 29, 2014

I've put this teaching by PAPAW402161 in an August 26, 2014 Devotional on the KEEP WALKING WITH JESUS SparkTeam "into a blog" so that I may always have it!

A word from the Word

August 26- - - It is appointed unto men once to die

Luke16:22"The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried,"

Both men died. One thing that we can be sure of and that is we are all going to die. Hebrews 9:27 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

You have herd the old saying “You'll never get out of the world alive”. Well this is somewhat true. The only exception to this is for those who will be alive at the coming of Christ. It tell me in the book of Thessalonian 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Both men, the rich man and Lazarus are dead. We see Lazarus being carried to paradise to the bosom of Abraham by angels while the rich man was buried.

We all wonder what death is going to be like. Will Jesus gives us a picture of death for those who are alive in Christ Jesus. It says that Lazarus is carried to paradise by angels.

Death for the Christian is to be “carried to paradise by angels”

    Yes, I believe as Luke 23:39 - 43 teaches. For in verse 43, it is written: "And JESUS said unto him [one of 2 other men crucified next to JESUS] 'Verily, I say unto thee, TODAY shalt thou be WITH ME IN PARADISE'.

Spiritualality and Weight-Loss Quiz, 8/25/14

Monday, August 25, 2014

I found this on another site, and thougth I would share it. It didn't seem to have any right or wrong answers, but I think was intended to make you think about weight loss and spirituality.


1. Do you think weight loss has anything to do with spirituality?
__ No. I don't think God cares what people weigh or look like- he cares about our inner selves.
__ Sort of. Weight loss and spirituality are both about self-improvement.
_x_ Yes. Our bodies are temples, so taking good care of your body is a way of showing respect to your soul's vessel.

2. Have you asked God to help you lose weight?
__ No. God doesn't care about how much I weigh.
__ No. God has other, more important things to worry about.
_x_ Yes. I have asked for the motivation and focus to change my life.

3. What is your primary reason for wanting to lose weight?
_x_To look better and be more attractive.
__To improve my overall health.
__To integrate my mind, body, and spirit.

4. How do you reward yourself for meeting a weight loss goal?
__I buy a new outfit to show off my new figure.
__I do something fun for myself, like going to a spa or getting a massage.
_x_I don't do anything, weight loss is its own reward.

5. How do you feel after you falter, i.e. splurge on your favorite fattening treat?
__I'm angry at myself for not being able to stick to my plan.
_x_I'm disappointed, but as long as I'm keeping up with the rest of my diet it's OK to splurge once in a while.
__I'm fine. If eating a cookie every now and then helps me stay happy, then it's more important than losing weight.

6. What's the biggest key to successfully losing weight?
__Counting calories.
__Sticking to an exercise program.
__Realizing the psychological reasons you overeat.

7. On your bookshelf, you have:
_x_Your Bible, meditation tapes, and spiritual diet books
__A ton of secular workout and diet books and videos.
__Some spiritually-themed diet books and workout plans.

8. How do you feel after you exercise?
__Full of energy and in need of a protein bar.
_x_Really centered and calm, and not at all hungry.
__Exhausted and famished.

9. Would you ever join a spiritual weight loss group?
__No, though I might join a group like Weight Watchers so I have some support while I work towards my goals.
__Maybe. The group would have to be mostly focused on weight loss, with some spiritual stuff sprinkled in.
_x_Yes. Being part of a spiritual community makes me feel more accountable to myself, and my higher power, as I lose weight.

10. How would you describe your relationship with food?
__It is a biological necessity. People need to eat food just like they need to breathe oxygen.
_x_It is the fuel I use to nourish my body and soul, so I focus on making the healthiest possible choices.
__It's what I turn to for comfort when I'm feeling sad or upset.

11. Besides weight loss, what other personal goals have you set for yourself?
__To spend more quality time with loved ones.
__To make more "me" time.
_x_To meditate more and strengthen my spiritual life.
_x Other Be a better housewife; ie cook, clean, straighten up, do laundry_

Short and Long Range Plans

Monday, August 04, 2014

Starting week 3 of the 10 minute Daily Exercise Challenge today! emoticon

Thinking I'll do the arm & shoulder emoticon video this week. Used to use 5 lb weights, but don't think I can manage that now. Going to WM today and will probably pick up a pair of 2 pounders! emoticon

Will have to see what I'd find fun! Not very fond of exercise. I do what I must!

Looked over list of fun ideas and 3 stuck out to me!

1) Walk & talk. This is fun! Have done @ twice before! Walk breezes by. Will call sis-in-law one morn this week @7 am while I'm walking in the park! It'll be @8 there. emoticon

2) I'm wearing my pedometer today and walking 1+ mile in the park early this morn and then going shopping in the big sores in Laredo today! Thinking I'll get over 5000 steps in and it'll be fun to see what I actually get by the end of the day!

3) Am planning to race emoticon against my past times in a SP 5K Virtual Race emoticon the first wk of May 2015! Need to equal to or less than 58 minutes! emoticon

    Its great you are getting out being active! One thing I heard and also works for me is using an ipod or mp3 player if I am outside or upbeat music at home on the computer or radio! It really makes it more enjoyable and i walk more or faster sometimes.

    Good goals, walking and talking sounds like a fun way to get your walk in. I find walking in Walmart gets the steps in but my back sure acts up walking that long. That is why I do several short walks a day. My back just doesn't hold up during long walks. Hugs and have a great day.
