DON’T GET IT TWISTED

Cover of Humility

by BeLinda Magee

Don’t get it twisted
If your name is not listed
In THE LAMB‘S BOOK OF LIFE
For causing envy, division, and/or strife.

GOD lets us all in on HIS sunshine and rain
Be on the road to HUMILITY,
Don’t get lost on the road of being vain.

What do I see when I look at you?
Do I see A CHILD OF GOD or expensive shoes or a new hairdo?

Do I see in you ALMIGHTY GOD?
Or are you representing a facade?

To possess GOD’S POWER, one can obtain it this very hour.
Only believe and ask for WISDOM or begin by saying, “Help LORD”,
GOD can fill you with HIS HOLY SPIRIT
It says so in HIS IMMUTABLE WORD.

The GOSPEL OR “GOOD NEWS” OF JESUS CHRIST,
Has all we need for our life.
It’s knowing about the “GOOD NEWS”
That will take away the “blues”.
If we’re in despair, be reassured
THE ALMIGHTY GOD ALWAYS CARES.

THE ALMIGHTY GOD HAS GRACE, MERCY, AND UNCONDITIONAL LOVE,
That can come only from UP ABOVE.

God's Promises to Abram, c. 1896-1902, by Jame...

We were all made to be unique in GOD’S handiwork design.  Therefore, all of GOD’S children have work to do in HIS VINEYARD.  There is no need for copycats.  Think for a moment – – How has OUR HEAVENLY FATHER purposed you to witness for HIM and to bring HIM GLORY?

Let’s take a look at some examples by reading through the HOLY BIBLE:

Abel – Jesus called him “righteous” (Matthew 23:35) and he being dead    continues to speak to us about bringing an acceptable offering unto the LORD.(Read also Genesis 4: 1-12 and Hebrews 11:4)

AbrahamGOD changed his name from Abram to Abraham and called by GOD to leave his country and to journey by faith and being obedient, he is known as the ‘father of Faith’ and a ‘friend of GOD’. (Read Galatians 3:6-9 and Hebrews 11:8-19)

Joseph – He suffered at the hands of his brothers and went from the pit to the prison to the palace and he did not yield to temptation of Potiphar’s wife.  (Read Genesis 39:1-23 to Genesis 50:1-26)

Samuel – He was a good prophet who followed GOD’S COMMANDS who also anointed David to be king over Israel after King Saul‘s disobedience and even had influence after his death. (Read 1 Samuel 28:3-19)

Elisha – Elisha was selected to succeed the great prophet, Elijah and Elisha did many powerful works through receiving a”double portion” of Elijah’s spirit. (Read 2 Kings 2:9 – 2 Kings 9:1-37)

Daniel – He had integrity and did not worship idol gods and did not defile himself with the king’s meat & drink and GOD gave him “knowledge and skill in learning and wisdom: and had understanding in all visions and dreams.” (Daniel 1:17)

Shadrach, Meshach, Abed-nego – Three friends associated with Daniel that had integrity also and “GOD gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom:” (Daniel 1:17)   They also did not worship idol gods and knew they would be delivered from King Nebuchadnezzar‘s orders by THE ALMIGHTY GOD and knew that GOD was able to deliver them even if HE did not rescue them.

A Poem about The HOLY BIBLE

A presentation edition of a GOD'S WORD bible

Image via Wikipedia

written by BeLinda Magee

GOD’S INCOMPARABLE WORD, THE HOLY BIBLE
Is definitely not liable,
If we do not understand
Its PRINCIPLES, LAWS, AND COMMANDS.
Of what ALMIGHTY GOD meant
Through HIS SON, JESUS – HE sent
To all mankind –
Men, Women, and Children,
Seeing or Blind

For those that are brave
Or for those that fear
For those that can or cannot hear,

For those that can or cannot talk
For those that can or cannot walk,
No good reasons to be made,
All excuses will have to fade.

By reading THE HOLY BIBLE it can enlighten our understanding,
To give us a smooth and safe landing,
Or to climb a very high altitude
Without being prideful or crude.

In GOD’S WORD (THE HOLY BIBLE) we can soar
Yet be humble to seek GOD for HIS WISDOM and more.
It’s for acquiring faith, comfort, and  GOD’S PEACE,
And conforming to the image of JESUS CHRIST
Unnecessary stress will have to cease.

To obtain knowledge, and wisdom, and learn about HIS unconditional love,
That only comes from OUR HEAVENLY FATHER above.
To learn to give HIM Thanks,
And to learn how not to yield to sin,
And to learn by using GOD’S WORD, this is the way to gain power to win.

Have you received THE HOLY SPIRIT because you believe?
GOD’S SON, JESUS, died and rose again for us to freely receive
THE HOLY SPIRIT who guides us into all truths.
THE HOLY BIBLE reveals infallible proofs.

By reading and studying THE HOLY BIBLE there’s help on all these levels,
And to learn how to love your enemies
And to learn how to resist the devil.

And to learn how to love,
And to learn how to pray,
And to draw nearer to ALMIGHTY GOD,
To know that JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY –
TO SALVATION.

If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Based on Ephesians 6:10-18, Paul speaks to present-day saints and the faithful in CHRIST JESUS also when he wrote to the church at Ephesus about spiritual warfare. This kind of warfare has been confusing at times with misunderstandings that an individual or persons can be the opponent when spiritual warfare is actually against certain kinds of principalities & powers, rulers of this world’s darkness along with spiritual wickedness. We cannot fight spiritual wars with natural means. In order to become effective and successful in our daily walk with the GOOD LORD, wearing the right kind of apparel is so essential.

(For the Head), put on the HELMET OF SALVATION, to become transformed by the renewing of the mind and this head covering will fit any servant of GOD.

(For the Chest), put on the BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, so that vital organs will be enclosed.

(For the Mid-Section), put on TRUTH, which will strengthen fully.

(For the Feet), have them shod with the PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE, in order to walk circumspectly and these shoes will fit any servant of GOD.

Be equipped with and apply the SHIELD OF FAITH, to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

Be equipped with and apply the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, which is THE WORD OF GOD, because it is sharper than any two-edged sword.

Continue in PRAYER AND SUPPLICATION IN THE SPIRIT, to communicate with ALMIGHTY GOD.

Also, be on the lookout continually by WATCHING WITH PERSEVERANCE AND SUPPLICATION FOR ALL SAINTS.
