The WORD is ALIVE

The WORD is ALIVE
I just love The Bible and I especially love diving into it, word for word. A great tool for this is E-Sword Bible. Of course…we will have scoffers who ask, “Why are you using this?” Well, the original Bible was written in two languages. Aramaic and Hebrew….and I cannot speak, nor read either…therefore I chose the King James Version in accordance with;

TheWordOfGodIsAlivePowerful

The Word of GOD is self-explanatory.
Quick…means alive! With life, and living. Simply put…AMAZING!

Powerful…active, operative. Always operational, with supernatural power!

Sharper…keen. I also take this as an intelligence issue too. There is NO one or anything smarter than GOD! Amen.

Two-edged… if two sides of the same blade are sharp, it cuts both ways. Does this imply that it works for the natural and supernatural? I believe so. This could also imply that it has a favorable and unfavorable outcome depending on which side you draw from.

Piercing…to reach through. To penetrate. To get to the ‘heart’ of the matter!

Dividing Asunder…Some believe that our spirit and soul are two different entities, but only GOD’S Word can separate the two. As with the example beforehand…the heart? We don’t speak of the pumping organ but the supernatural essence. For instance, “Listen to your heart?” This does not imply that you are to listen to the heartbeats but to your supernatural voice. This Voice, to me, is The Holy Spirit talking to you. I believe the same for the ‘gut feeling’ some people speak of. Or the ‘instinctive feeling’ one gets…it tells you right from wrong. I believe this is The Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is directing you and you should listen. Take heed. And once you learn that voice, you will get better at responding to The Holy Spirit!
The Word of GOD “divides asunder” or separates the soul and spirit of man because they are two separate and distinct entities. There would be no need to divide them if they were the same. For instance, if you tried to separate water from water, you would find it is impossible. You cannot separate something from itself.
But two distinct entities can be separated. For example, when water and dirt are mixed together in a container, the muddy water is still basically made up of two different elements: water and dirt. If left undisturbed, the mud would settle to the bottom of the container. The mud could be separated from the water, because dirt and water are two separate entities.
Similarly, although the spirit and soul are intertwined within the nature of each of person, they can be separated from each other because they are two separate entities. But they can only be separated and distinguished by the Word of GOD.

Of Soul…breathe. Spirit. Soul. Life. Mind.

Of Spirit…air, breathe. Spirit. Superhuman…meaning angel, demon, or GOD. This is interesting, don’t you think? Makes me question when we die and pass over…does our soul cease to exist? These two examples side-by-side seem to suggest just that. Or does it?

Joints…body.

bible-Sunlight

Marrow…a soft fatty substance in the cavities of bones, in which blood cells are produced (often taken as typifying strength and vitality). When a person gets cancer, the marrow is affected and they grown weak. With a bone marrow transplant, the person is likely to reverse their diagnosis if the person’s marrow was a match. Doctors use needles to withdraw liquid marrow (where the body’s blood-forming cells are made) from both sides of the back of your pelvic bone. This is amazing if you think about it. A match? Considering that 70% of patients in need of a marrow transplant do not have a matching donor in their family, this is huge.
The fact that life, vitality is within your blood cells is proof enough for me to understand how GOD works!

The-Bible-Man-shall-not-live-by-bread-alone-Matt-4-4

Discerner…GOD was the First Discerner! We are chosen to be, if GOD thinks we are capable. Of course anyone can discern…I’m speaking of a supernatural discernment. GOD discerns our thoughts and intentions of the heart. GOD knows us better than we know ourselves.

Biblical-wisdom

To me…the KJV is the only Bible that gives us the true intentions of GOD. Many will argue but I don’t care. My question is this…if you believe this is not the case, then HOW can you tell others that they can/cannot add or subtract from it?
Truth is inspiring, it is guarded by GOD, and will triumph over all opposition!

Sometimes it feels as if we’re alone in our decision making processes. We feel utterly alone in a world full of people. How does that happen? Other times, we feel like we have prayed and gotten no answer, only to be left in a dark cloud of resentment and anger because we feel like GOD isn’t listening.
Have you felt like this? Well, I think we all have.

Let’s look at some rather famous people from the Bible!
Joseph and Moses
Moses was a man who was after GOD’S Heart. He did everything within his power and might to do what GOD wanted but there were times when he felt like his life wasn’t what it was suppose to be. Not what GOD intended for it to be. Moses was taken to the Nile River and place into a basket! Can you imagine? His parents trusted GOD implicitly. This was divine providence.
Moses– the child of a Hebrew slave– was found and adopted by an Egyptian princess, the daughter of the Pharaoh himself. He was reared in the royal court as a prince of the Egyptians.
Joseph–spent his early years as his father’s beloved son, but his brothers handed him over to foreigners and they took him to Egypt.
Is this a parallel that we should be interested in? YES! Egypt is prominent in our history of religion. The reasons are too many to place here but suffice it to say that the secret religions/cults came from there after Nimrod initiated their origin.

Foggy-Road

Moses and Joseph spent many years in obscurity and there came a time when they both married.
There had to be times when they both felt that GOD had forsaken them. This seems to me as they were both types of Christ. By no means am I giving this example as a replacement but an example of how GOD always comes through, and especially for His Son, Jesus Christ.
My example reveals this:
Moses and Joseph are two typological portraits which find unity in the perfect work of GOD! They were both chosen by GOD to liberate the children of GOD, and fulfilled the responsibilities of GOD.

I was recently asked how can we know what GOD has intended for our lives, what gifts do we have that can be utilized for GOD…
We are given many types of gifts…gifts which we are to use for GOD.
I revealed a personal story to a coworker recently;
When I was young I became interested in writing. I thought, “How cool would it be to write?” So, I began writing short stories…and sci-fi seemed to be my choice at the time. I was also very interested in art. Drawing quickly became a passion for me. I loved it!
But, I grew older and stopped writing. I continued to draw and as got older I began to work in different mediums. Soon, there were very few mediums which which I hadn’t dove into.
But, try as I may…I could never make a living from it.
So, I chose careers which had no passion for me.
Then, when GOD called me to this work…I had accumulated hundreds of pieces of work. HE told me…THESE GIFTS ARE NOT YOURS! They are mine!!
My heart sank. I felt so selfish. I realized that GOD had given me these talents for HIM!
It took me several years before I realized THIS WAS IT! This was the reason GOD called me at such a young age with those exact interests!
AMAZING!!

Here I sit, writing to you. Using my gifts which I mentioned but GOD has added to them!
So, here you sit…reading this
Do you know what the long way is about?
It’s about realizing there are no short cuts in life. WE are here for GOD.
Gifts:
1. Word of wisdom
2. Word of knowledge
3. Faith
4. Gift of healing
5. Working of miracles
6. Prophecy
7. Discernment of spirits
And these are but a few!

GOD sees these gifts as HE sees best, and not for what we think they are for.
1 Corinthians 12:
12 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

GOD says:
TURN TO ME!
Isaiah 45:
22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
Joel 2:
12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:

This is for all the ladies out there….big and small. We need to teach our children these morals and values.

We are wonderfully made. GOD has a special touch when it comes to women….He made us different than men and I am so glad.

me6
Be proud of who you are.

me5
A beautiful woman delights the eye; a wise woman, the understanding; a pure one, the soul.

me4
When virtue and modesty enlighten her charms, the luster of a beautiful woman is brighter than the stars of heaven, and the influence of her power it is in vain to resist.

me3
A woman whose smile is open and whose expression is glad has a kind of beauty no matter what she wears.

me2
A wise woman wishes to be no one’s enemy; a wise woman refuses to be anyone’s victim.

me1
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.

me
A really strong woman accepts the war she went through and is ennobled by her scars.

women_of_purpose_logo
Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline, fortitude, and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful.

maobkp5770z4nvzn52e
A wise woman recognizes when her life is out of balance and summons the courage to act to correct it, she knows the meaning of true generosity, happiness is the reward for a life lived in harmony, with a courage and grace.

A lovely nook of forest scenery, or a grand rock, like a beautiful woman, depends for much of its attractiveness upon the attendance sense of freedom from whatever is low; upon a sense of purity and of romance.

Deep in every heart slumbers a dream, and the couturier knows it: every woman is a princess.

The real ornament of woman is her character, her purity.

You may be a princess or the richest woman in the world, but you cannot be more than a lady.

You see limitations; God sees opportunities. You see faults; God sees growth. You see problems; God sees solutions. You see limitations; God sees possibilities. You see life; God sees eternity.

Forgiveness is not a one off decision; it is a journey and a process that takes time, determination, and persistence. Forgiveness is not forgetting; it is simply denying your pain the right to control your life.

There are parts of a woman’s heart that are reserved for certain types of love. Experiencing the love of a father figure in an appropriate way is essential in paving the way for the love of a man to be experienced in the right way.

“…You say to God, “I have never seen you provide for me.” God says to you, “You have never trusted Me.”

There are two decisions you need to make after you have accepted Jesus into your life. One: You need to make the decision to get over your past. You will not grow unless you make a conscious decision to get over your past. Two: Once you have made that decision, you need to trust God to help you get over your past…

You didn’t just automatically become a Christian, did you? You weren’t made a Christian by just going to church. Just like you are not made a car by sitting in a garage all day! You have to make a decision.

ochi-verzi-5

When we look to God as provider, we are surrendering our independence and trusting someone else to meet our needs, over which we have no control. Letting go of our ‘dependence on independence’ and letting someone else take control goes against natural human instinct. We need to fight the urge to take over and just let God be God, because He can provide for us better than we can.

The outcome of your situation is directly determined by your attitude towards your problem.

Even though the circumstances surrounding your conception may make you wonder whether your life was just some accident, let me tell you that your life is no accident! Before you were born, before you were even conceived, God already knew you. He knew your likes and dislikes, your passions and desires. He also had in mind a specific purpose for bringing you into the world, otherwise you would not exist.

godly_beauty_by_teensieking-d5ecuhg

My dear sister, you can’t escape God, and you can’t escape your skeletons in the closet. They will always be there until you take them out from behind those dusty old moth-eaten coats. Your exterior facade of ‘everything is alright’ only works for a little while, and then the cracks begin to show. You can only hide behind yourself for so long. You can’t keep running!

Colossians 1 (KJV)
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

All humans have it. It’s the stuff…the glue that holds us together.

Laminins are high-molecular weight (~400kDa) proteins of the extracellular matrix. They are a major component of the basal lamina (one of the layers of the basement membrane), a protein network foundation for most cells and organs. The laminins are an important and biologically active part of the basal lamina, influencing cell differentiation, migration, and adhesion, as well as phenotype and survival.

Jesus Christ wants us all to hold one another together. We are to use our strength of our faith to remain steady and also to hold each other together. Many people out there need help. We are to use our gifts which GOD gives us to provide that help.
ITS AMAZING! I found this LAMININ to be amazing! GOD brings all things together for HIS purpose. And here is my challenge to you atheists…explain that!
