18 Now where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.  19 Therefore, brothers, since we have boldness to enter the sanctuary through the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way He has opened for us through the curtain (that is, His flesh),

  1. Your post is timely…much needed scripture this morning James…God’s blessings on you for hearing and obeying His lead.

    Ali’s post is as well, copied from her post…
    “You will be strong in Me, but in your own strength, when your guard is down you are weak. One day at a time little one, one day at a time. You are the victor as you walk in the power of My blood understanding satan is under your feet. Keep him there”.

    1. Agree here too Vicki and James. The timing and posts helping me keep my mouth from grumbling (sin)over the weather wars. I feel for the farmers, ranchers and all being hit by flooding etc. I just have a garden and an RV of my friends to drain before this evening. I can see the goodness of the Lord because seasonal depression used to be a major battle for me. Our temps were to be in the low 50s today and woke to 32, now a high of 38 today vs low 50’s, sleet and below 30s for a few nights with what looks like a lot of snow.
      As I looked at the garden, it struck me how hard these in agriculture will be hit by the latest round. Seems to be happening once a week- week and a half going from 60s-80s down to freezing and snow….
      It’s amazing when you point the weather out to people and what Jesus said, people are even blinded in this area too.

      Awesome having this song now playing in my heart and soul. 🙂

  2. I found this article to be very clarifying on what IT means When christians gather together. The Word church is misleading, assembly or congregation is more accurate. There was Even a definition like this;

    The Word Kirke or Circe where church stems from was a pagan goddess WHO tamed animals for her circus.

    Thats why i find IT important to see that when in Christian circles assembly or congregation of believers is more accurate. IT conveys the meaning of a body ruled by the Holy Spirit that are of one mind in matters of fundamental precepts and statutes of the bible.

    So let us not be animals tamed for circus or Circe, notice the same base for word? But let us be an assembly Even a small one where truth and liberty in Christian spirit can be proclaimed and practiced.

    I found this idea pertinent to bring forth because of the title of only the blood! Not membership or partnership in some organization or other!

    2. Good article Stig. We can read in scripture that the Church is referred to as true believers who often gather together or people seeking the truth who don’t yet know the Lord.

      This was never meant to be a “religious” building to be used as a Social Club or as a place to snooze while listening to messages not being lead by the Holy Spirit. It certainly was not meant to be a place of gathering for “Hollywood Style” entertainment.

      We are the Church and we also can “Have Church” any where and any time.

  3. Being obedient isn’t always easy but it’s necessary! We were also instructed to sell our home and to downsize. I remember, there was an urgency to it all. It was also not an easy thing for us, somewhat painful, emotional. We had no idea where we were going to go…but it all went well, without a hitch. We’ve purchased homes and sold them several times in the past 30 year’s and have never experienced such a pleasant transaction as this one. It was the only one the Lord was involved in, the only Holy Spirit led move for us. When we obey the will of the Lord, He takes care of everything and all is well! He led…we followed. July will two years.

  4. Verse Of The Day from Bible Gateway — 5/19/17

    But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peace-loving, gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruits, without favoritism and hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who cultivate peace.
    James 3:17-18 HCSB

    1. 1 Timothy 2:1-6

      First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, 2 for kings and all those who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. 3 This is good, and it pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
      5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and humanity,
      Christ Jesus, Himself human,
      6 who gave Himself—a ransom for all, a testimony at the proper time.

  5. This recent dream from Kerry-Ann Gidden is intriguing:

    I believe the Lord showed me several times that Trump will be taken out. I also believe Obama will step back into a position of power. In my opinion, Obama still holds power, and he and Trump are acting out an elaborate stage drama to fool the American people as they plunge the country into chaos. But the question has been in my mind: Why is Trump going along with this if he gets killed in the end? This dream answers that question: He doesn’t get killed. It’s a fake assassination. More stage drama.

    1. Thanks for sharing that video Mike. Interesting in how Bette’s video today also had a message of warning for Donald Trump and others in office. She is going to be sending out more urgent messages very soon.

    2. Interesting Mike. The tenure of Trump is/will be short. But if he will continue this way and its proven he is a mason his duty is clearly to be an chaos agent.

      Order out of chaos is the motto.

  6. Scripture relative to Standing Strong In Faith and be ready:

    Luke 21:34-36
    34 “Be on your guard, so that your minds are not dulled from carousing, drunkenness, and worries of life, or that day will come on you unexpectedly 35 like a trap. For it will come on all who live on the face of the whole earth. 36 But be alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place and to stand before the Son of Man.”

    1. Times are very hard and the worse is yet to come………In all of this though, I see a unity of one heart and mind in the body. Watchmen and intercessors may say things a bit different, yet they are all saying the same thing. The beauty of the Lord shows up in how He is doing all of this through so many
