Preservation of The Word

The preservation of God’s Word – the Bible – won’t ever cease. For it says, the grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of God stands forever. Upon realizing how the Word of God has been preserved over time it shouldn’t be a surprise that the Word of God is easily accessible through the internet. When the thought first came to my mind I was surprised. If ever paper books/paperbacks go away completely because of eReaders and tablets this won’t be an issue for the Bible, because the Bible is already accessible through the internet; it is able to be read on tablets, smartphones, and eReaders.

“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40:8

This verse isn’t just for God’s written Word – the Bible – but also for His spoken Word; the Word He speaks to His children both individually and collectively. Which brings me to say, what God speaks will come to pass, nothing against it is going to stop it.

God has the authority, power and dominion to pass a judgment and later relent if He pleases to. In the Old Testament this is seen when a person, a group or the leader of a group repents for his sins and/or the sins of the people. As I’m still on the topic of God’s Word, it shall be known that God has said, His Word will not return to Him void but it will accomplish what He has sent it forth to do and it will prosper in the thing it was sent to accomplish.

“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:10-11

In the last two verses of Isaiah 55, God speaks. After He has given us reassurance and confidence of His Word He then gives us His promise. Therefore, we can completely trust His Word.

“For you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree. And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree; and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.” Isaiah 55:12-13

Thank You Lord!

To Contain my Excitement…

…I needed to read some scriptures before I started worrying about an acceptance package/letter for a paid internship program.

Philippians 4:6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

 Proverbs 3:6

…in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

Matthew 6:25-27

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

 

There is a reason why we are to hide God’s word in our hearts.    🙂 Scripture helps..

Help A Sista Out

I just listened to the most powerful sermon and I don’t believe I’ve ever listed to one so powerful. One of the best things is that the sermon topic didn’t stick to one sentence or passage in the Bible; no, no, no,  Dr. Bridget Hilliard used MULTIPLE sections of the Bible for her sermon. (I’m not saying that sermons with one sentenced “themes” aren’t good or close to good, most are). The thing is you don’t have to second guess anything because what is being said is right in front of your face, it’s in the Bible all you have to do is read it and ask God for understanding when reading it. I want to share it but I think the file to upload it on here is too big. I can’t upload it and there’s only a 9 minute video on YouTube, the whole message is not 9 minutes it’s like an hour, more or less. I have the CD b/c one of my family members bought it when the CD first came out…so I’m thinkin this was meant to be- for me to hear it, after all nothing just happens-everything happens for a reason and a purpose, and all things work together for good to them that love God.<3 

WAIT 😀  I JUST FOUND THE WHOLE thing on you tube!!!!———here’s the clip for the first part.>>>>>

FOR THE REST SEARCH ON YOUTUBE>>Bridget Hilliard Grace To Overcome Generational Curses 1

Here’s the name of the CD and where it’s from, where to get it etc, etc.

Tittle: Help A Sista Out  Bishop T.D. Jakes Women Thou Art Loosed, 2003: Dr. Bridget Hilliard: HELP!

He May Have Won The Battle, But Not The War…Not The War!!

Shes reading “The List” by Sherri Lewis while on the bus heading home. Shes sitting in the back and there’s a woman on her left and a ma on her right. Her only interest at that moment was to continue reading that book( cuz ya know when she lands her hands on a good book she doesn’t want to take her eyes off it lol). So the bus still has a while to go before she reaches her stop. At this point the man to her right asks her ” excuse me do you know how long it will take this bus to reach its final destination”. She answers the man politely even though she’s thinking why is this man bothering me?, can’t he see that I’m READING! so anyway she answers ” about another 20minutes too a half hour before this bus reaches its final destination”. He continues to talk to her even though she has redirected her attention to the novel she has in her hands. Five minutes pass and she starts to notice that the man at her right is fidgeting way too much…she’s contemplating whether or not she should find another seat or just continue reading. She choose to continue reading. After about another 2minutes the man starts to ask her questions about what she’s reading? and are you gaining anything from it? he goes on and on and on and on. She’s having patience with this guy…she’s answering his questions trying to defend herself because whatever this guy is trying to do is not friendly. AT ALL! he comes to start talking about the Bible. You can tell when a stranger has good intentions or bad intentions with the way they are talking to you. It’s the tone of voice, the words they use,…something just isn’t right. Somthin’s not right…For the life of her as a christian she first vibe she got from this was negative. Although she tried to defend herself and God and the scripture…but then she started to think what if this is God trying to send me a message(because at this stage of her life she’s depending on God to answer her prayers and take her out of confusion) what if I’m talking to this guy for a reason…

you see the thing is…when she got home and took a walk, and listened to this service her biological father told her to listen to a couple of days ago, she knew what went wrong. But now God has tought her another lesson and she will keep this lesson close just like all the other ones.

THANKS BE TO GOD, ALL THE GLORY, HONOR AND PRAISE, FOR SAVING ME ONCE AGAIN, for keeping me and holding me and ALWAYS  protecting me, even if it’s from myself.

This is a long story, so please pardon me. Feel free to comment on your opinions if your interested. 

When you get a chance listen to what I listened to: The Potter’s House,T.D. Jakes The Blood Speaks. Google it if you can, it is honestly a great sermon. Thanks for reading Love to ALL.
