The Day is coming…..!

August 30, 2009

“For behold, the day is coming,
Burning like an oven,

And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble.
And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” Says the LORD of hosts,
“ That will leave them neither root nor branch.

But to you who fear My name
The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
With healing in His wings;
And you shall go out
And grow fat like stall-fed calves.
You shall trample the wicked,
For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet

On the day that I do this,
Says the LORD of hosts.

“ Remember the Law of Moses, My servant,
Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel,
With the statutes and judgments.

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
And he will turn
The hearts of the fathers to the children,
And the hearts of the children to their fathers,
Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”

    To AIG: regarding the 165mil bonus payout…

    March 20, 2009

     

    Dear AIG,

    In light of your recent bonus payout whereby you have justified your deplorable actions by saying you handed out said bonuses because you made promises that couldn’t be broken.  I would like to know since when did you think it was so important to keep promises? That being said there is something that you should know in your quest to justify your actions. This little bit of wisdom I want to share with you was written by the ancient prophet Jeremiah. The message is still good. Apply it to yourselves:

     

    “You cut and hurt a lot of people to get where you are.
    And yet you have the gall to say, ‘I’ve done nothing wrong.
       God doesn’t mind. He hasn’t punished me, has he?’
    Don’t look now, but judgment’s on the way,
       aimed at you who say, ‘I’ve done nothing wrong.’ “

    Don’t withold good….

    Proverbs 3:27-35

    When it is in your power, [a]
        don’t withhold good (A) from the one to whom it is due.

        28 Don’t say to your neighbor, “Go away! Come back later.
        I’ll give it tomorrow”—when it is there with you. (B)

        29 Don’t plan any harm against your neighbor, (C)
        for he trusts you and lives near you.

        30 Don’t accuse anyone without cause, (D)
        when he has done you no harm.

        31 Don’t envy a violent man (E)
        or choose any of his ways;

        32 for the devious are detestable to the LORD,
        but He is a friend [b] to the upright. (F)

        33 The LORD‘s curse is on the household of the wicked, (G)
        but He blesses the home of the righteous;

        34 He mocks those who mock,
        but gives grace to the humble. (H)

        35 The wise will inherit honor,
        but He holds up fools to dishonor. [c]

                                                            King Solomon

    …hearts full of evil

    November 8, 2008

    I’ve been  thinking about the ugliness that I have seen this week since the historic event that took place November 4  here in  the United States of America.  These thoughts have sometimes kept me up at night.  Barack Obama has been elected as our new president.  I have heard terrible things being said about a man who has not yet taken office.  It has caused my heart to ache to see the bigotry that had been hidden and cloaked in garments of niceness and tolerance. Now the big event has uncovered the true nature of some.  Hate speak abounds.  Nothing is held back.  The  feelings of the heart are being exposed.  It has made me sick.   I searched for answers in the Holy scriptures.  King Solomon offered an explanation in the 9th book of Ecclesiastes verse 3.  This explanation has calmed my spirit and brought understanding.

    “This is an evil among all things that are done under the sun, that there is one event unto all:  yea, also the heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.”

    Hearts full of evil and madness. The only explanation that has brought definition to what I have seen and heard. I want to be a child of God.  I want my heart to be filled with love and understanding.  Creator God please help me.

    Just thinking……….

    God the creator

    November 6, 2008

     

    Daniel answered and said: 

    Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
    For wisdom and might are His. 
    And He changes the times and the seasons;
    He removes kings and raises up kings;
    He gives wisdom to the wise
    And knowledge to those who have understanding. 
    He reveals deep and secret things;
    He knows what is in the darkness,
    And light dwells with Him.

    Daniel 2:20-22
    NKJV
