Jesus, Help Me...Fellows, Let's Roll!
You Don't Know How to Live?
What Is So Valuable and Priceless?
Am that I Am. What Else is There?
Flee to the mountains.
Our Heavenly Father and Our Lord
Jesus Christ are the God of Miracles. When Israel flees to
the mountains, it will be to the old Edomite capitol of Petra ...
a place of entrance of about 3 feet, with narrow road to reach,
and miles from nowhere.
You enter, through the opening, into an
arena like opening; with rock walls reaching several hundred feet.
The diameter of the opening is probably 500 feet ... with no water
source and no food source. There is no other way in or out,
totally surrounded by rock walls. There are a few caves, which
extend about 75 feet or less, into the base of rock on one side.
I spent about 4 hours walking around,
looking and considering the Greatness of our Heavenly Father and
Jesus Christ, the taking of His people to this hiding place, the
miracles of water and food. the Divine Protection and Divine
Provision, and many other miracles they have to perform for
Amazing, awe, and wondrous beyond our
understanding - how Our God is gonna perform these great
miracles. If you need a miracle, know that God is more than able
to perform a miracle for you as well. It was a miracle that
I was able to visit Petra, to ponder how Great is our Heavenly
Father and Lord Jesus Christ.
Way beyond my comprehension and
understanding but, it will happen. It is same as done already.
Watch, and be ready for the miracle to happen, soon. Our God is
a God of Miracles.

Wisdom to Live By
"Trust in the Lord with all
thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and
He shall direct thy paths."
As a child, I had read many times.
I thought I was doing exactly what verse 5 said. As I grew up
to teen age, I still thought everything was right on. The older I
became, having experienced many different things in life, I
began to realize I wasn't trusting at all. My own
understanding was not nearly what it should have been. I had
over compensated in going forth and was completely off the path set
for me. Big adjustments had to be made, right now. The
path the Lord set for me was straight. The path I was taking
was way off to the left and far off to the right. My
understanding was a long way from His purpose for me.
Then came time for obedience to the
Gospel. Being born again was a tumultuous experience. It
took over two years to get my feet on the ground and walking the
path He laid out for me. Great struggles and battles were
fought over learning God's Will for my life. Although, I
had been shown it as a child.
Then came verse 6, which I thought I had
been doing, but was brought to a standstill. I was doing the
first part of acknowledging Him. But, the understanding of the
future, where the paths were leading, wasn't clear to me. Slowly,
but slowly, over a period of more than 3 years, the path was taking
The burning desire to win souls to Jesus
Christ was and is burning hot within. That is the
reason I witness to almost everyone I meet. I pass out tracts, talk
how great they can be, play violin and teach, write poetry and
meditations, and help everyone that I can communicate with.
He is leading, by the Holy Spirit, and
directing my path in which to walk. Walking with Jesus Christ
is the greatest bit of wisdom that I can impart ... the most Blessed
life that I have found, after 71 years of living, 20 years
schooling, and traveling to all the states and some foreign
Proverbs truly is a picture of Wisdom
that we, as God's children, live by. He has laid out the path
in which to walk, hand in hand, with Him.
Jesus Christ said, come unto me you that are heavy laden, and I will
give you rest.
Where the Spirit of Christ is there is Liberty.
So many of us are having a difficult time dealing with our
brokenness. Whether it is caused by our own actions,
decisions, or our own weaknesses. And, of course, in
this evil time of abortion, divorce, hatred, jealousy, crime, or
other relationships gone wrong; we are deeply hurt and sore in
heart. We need healing, but wrap (the hurts and cuts) up
inside of ourselves. It festers, grows, and erupts until we
have lost our freedom to become all that we can be. Our
conscience is crowded by what will others think if they knew, what
more do I have to put up with in this life, and other things.
Here is what one of my friends is doing about it. She
read the Bible and asked Jesus to tell her what else she needed to
do to be completely whole. She took a nap, awoke refreshed,
and immediately the Lord gave her a vision. The vision was of
a little girl with broken glass all around her. She reached
down to pick up all the broken pieces. The Lord spoke to her
and said, "I'll pick them up for you!"
She immediately knew that those pieces of broken glass represented
all the hurts, cuts, and bruises of her whole life. She wanted
so much to get rid of. She said, "Yes, Jesus. You
pick them up for me, I don't need them any longer, and heal my
heart. I want to be free from all of those hurts. I want
to be free. Thank you, Jesus."
Our brokenness, is one of the most important things we (as God's
People) need to surrender to Him ... so that we can be healed of our
brokenness. Jesus Christ is the only healer and burden bearer
that we have. So, go to Jesus in Bible study, prayer, and
surrender all your hurts and brokenness to Him. He will gladly
take all of them. Please do not hold anything back. 1
He set me free! Praise Him, He set me free! He can you,
also. Come unto Jesus Christ, all ye that are heavy laden, and
He will give you rest, healing, mercy and blessings.
Our hands are great teaching tools.
They have taught me many lessons. One of them is ...
The left hand: On this hand we have
no hope, no purpose, no future, failure, falling way short, broken
relationships, sickness, no love, heartache, worry, tension, anxiety, judgment, death, and we don't have to do anything to get all of
that. And, there is nothing worth holding onto. Proverbs
says those that hate God, love death.
The right hand: On this hand we
have, hope, purpose, future, success, reaching our ultimate potential, strong
relationships, health, love, peace, joy, comfort, abundant
living, and more than enough of everything ... every thing worth
holding onto. But we can't, because the more we extend
our hand in blessing others, the more we receive.
The question is: Which hand do we
want our life to be?
Well, every intelligent person always says
the right hand! You are right in saying the right hand is best!
But, to have a life like the right hand, one
has to have a relationship with the real Jesus Christ!
God's Word tells us how to establish
and renew that relationship daily. Make the right choice and
extend your right hand, open, intending to obey Him in a
relationship, and you have all He has to give you. And, it
Let's Roll !!!
Famous last few words of Brother Todd
Beamer, "Jesus, Help Me. Fellows, let's roll!" ... A
call to faith and action almost unequaled. We are called to be
soul winners and faithful, until the end of this life. We have a
perfect example in Todd and the rest of the men onboard Flight 93.
Matthew 4:18,19, "And Jesus,
walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon, called Peter,
and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were
fishers. And He saith unto them. Follow me, and I will
make you fishers of men." It's a great challenge
He gives to each of us today. Let us be like Peter, Andrew, and
Todd Beamer; for there can be no greater calling.
In this time of great spiritual warfare,
going on all over the world; wars, rumors of wars, murder, mayhem,
stealing, lying, drunkenness, drugs, and many other sins ... we
need many men like these three; brave men who will follow Jesus Christ
in obedience and love, faithful until the end. Will you answer
the call, and obey Christ, go into all the world and preach the gospel
to the lost and dying world?
We are the ones He has called for this
purpose. We are to seek the lost, love them into the kingdom of
God. The Bible says teach, baptize, and teach all of mankind.
Tell them of Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father, who loves them more
than we can tell them. You have to experience their love,
mercy, forgiveness, faithfulness, and compassion.
Will you say, "Jesus, help me.
Brothers, let's roll?
Colossians 3:1, "If Ye then be risen
with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth
on the right hand of God. (2.) Set your affection on things on
the earth. (3.) For ye are dead, and your life is hid with
Christ in God. (4.) When Christ, who is our life, shall appear,
then shall ye also appear with Him in Glory."
The question is, "Who is your
life?" If you are then, we have the obligation and ought to
obey. This obeying is to seek those things which are above!
Our minds should be on the heavenly scene of God the Father and Jesus
Christ, on their thrones, with all the elders, angels, and witnesses
praising and worshiping them in the in the GLORY of the Lord's
presence ... radiance beyond words to describe, voices and music
loud in praise; excitement beyond words.
All of our affections are to be focused on
the heavenly scene, living as if we were already home. Our
worship is present, but our minds and bodies are here on earth.
Our priorities and lives are brought into harmony with Our God,
with the Holy Spirit working in our lives. We have peace, joy,
happiness, and a most blessed hope in which to live. The things
of earth fade in comparison. Thus, having put on the mind of
Christ, we are able to live abundantly while here, as if we were
The reason is, we are dead to this world
and our lives are hid in Christ Jesus, our Wonderful Lord. He is
our all in all. He is our life. Nothing else matters.
He is in charge of all that we do, say, and are. He shares all
that we experience, whether it be sickness, hurts, diseases, trials,
tribulation, or physical death. We are being prepared
for our heavenly home, so we won't be strangers there, but will know
The great promise: when Christ, who is our
life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in Glory.
This is a great motivation unto perfecting our lives in harmony with
God's will for us. We make this blessed hope a reality.
We take all steps necessary to obey; to humble ourselves and
to grasp on to eternal life.
How beautiful heaven must be, great
home for the happy and free; praising God for eternity. Decide,
today, to make this scripture yours and live this way. You will
be blessed beyond measure. Give Glory to our Heavenly Father and
our Lord Jesus Christ, who makes it all possible.
In Psalms 83, we find the picture of the enemies of God on one side
and the Children of God on the other. This ages old battle
is raging at a feverish pitch. Darkness can't stand light and
reacts in lying, cheating, murder, mayhem, evil actions. They
are all anti-God (Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus Christ) and do all in
their power to rid the earth of their remembrance. History
is a proof of this, as well as God's Word.
For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have
lifted up the head. They take crafty counsel against thy people,
and consulted against thy hidden ones.
They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation;
that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. That is
verses 2, 3, and 4 of Psalm 83. It further lists those are in
that grouping and all Moslem or false religionists.
The God of the Jews is our Heavenly Father (JEHOVAH), including
Jesus Christ the Christian. They are the God of the light. While
the false gods (including Moslem) are all in darkness. The false wanna
be gods are the children of Satan, whose only reward he can give is
death and destruction. The father of all lies.
We are the children of light. Ph. 2:15, "That you be
blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst
of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the
world." John 8:12, "Then spake Jesus again unto them
saying, 'I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not
walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.'"
We are in the midst of this warfare. So, we need to realize who
the enemy is and how he works. Satan and his crowd only know
ways of darkness, doing all they can do to rid the world of light.
Never compromise your faith, for it is surrendering unto
darkness. They have religion but not salvation.
But, put on the whole armor of God and walk in victory. Be on
the victory side. Verse 17-18, "Let them be confounded
and troubled for ever, yea, let them be put to shame, and perish: That
men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, ART THE MOST HIGH
OVER ALL THE EARTH. AMEN."
Will a man rob God? Good question,
and the answer is a loud, "YES!" Many preachers
ask this question in a sermon on raising money. But, that is not
the whole meaning of this question. Some use it to have members
to give more to the Lord's work. There are other reasons,
also. Some give to escape responsibility of seeking the lost, or
soul winning ... or, having a compassionate heart towards the hurting,
dying, and spiritual problems; thinking they can't deal with the
One of the main ways we are Robbing our
Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ is to not being willing to share the
Gospel; the Good news that God Loves us and has made a way
for all of us, regardless of our sinful situation and bondage ... the
drunks, drugs, and all the rest of our sinful acts of mankind,
that Satan has used to kill and destroy.
The whole purpose for the creation of
mankind was for our Heavenly Father to have fellowship, and relations
with us. When we fail to seek out the lost sheep, teach,
baptize, and teach; we are robbing God! When we fail to
give our time, moneys, talents, and all we have to further the Gospel;
we are robbing God! Many are the ways of Robbing Our Heavenly
Father and Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, of the fellowship
of mankind. We fail in our commission 'Go into All the World and
Preach the Gospel'.
So many of us think, "I gave my
dollar, today, and did my duty of just going to church. Some
say, "Let someone else do it. I am too busy," or, "I
am too GOOD to associate with those filthy, dirty, low life."
Some might even think, "I just don't have to do everything God
says! I'll just do what I like and nothing more!" All
kinds of excuses and lies are given to escape full surrender and to
become a servant.
In what ways are you robbing, not only God
but, yourselves of the great times of love, fellowship, rewards,
and joys of serving Jesus Christ with your whole heart; the most
exciting life you can have on the face of the earth? Many, many,
souls would be added to the Kingdom ... if you would take this
responsibility upon yourselves to be a soul winner, prayer warrior,
clay in the Master's Hand.
Malachi 3 has it correct, when He asks the
question, "Will a man rob God?" What are you
gonna do about it? Acts 2:38, "Then Peter said unto them,
Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ
for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy
Ghost." Acts 2:42, "And they continued steadfastly in
the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and
It's a picture of what we must
do to be saved, s well as what we must do as obedient servants.
Then, you will not rob God, the Father and Jesus Christ, so much ...
and many will be saved from His wrath.
God Bless you and yours.
Become a piece of clay in His Hand!
The way you are supposed to live in
the perfect will of God is to obey His Word. Colossians
3:12-14, "Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and
beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness,
longsuffering. Forbearing one another, and forgiving one
another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ
forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put
on Charity (love), which is the bond of perfect ness."
In this time of great darkness, evil, wars,
and persecutions; we are to live according to God's Word.
Because we are His, purchased by His own blood, we are not
ourselves anymore. We have been adopted into the Family of
God; a precious privilege to receive and be all that we can be.
Our character matters and our
relationships ... to ourselves, others, and to our Heavenly
Father and Jesus Christ, We are not to take our
faith lightly. It is utmost important that we become
servants. As servants, we will become all that our Heavenly
Father and Jesus Christ shall make us to be, in their image.
Since our great God is LOVE, when
we put on Christ we will also love. This is proof that we
are children of the Most High God and partaker in His perfect ness
... another way of saying, "Wholeness, completeness, all
that we ever can be."
What a great challenge Christ gives to
each of us, each day of our lives, to measure up, in character and
actions, in Him. We, therefore, ought to conform to His
standard for our daily lives ... for us to live out our lives in
His Love and perfect ness. Then, the peace of God will rule
in your hearts, resounding in His Glory.
May you learn to love everyone, as He
Now, you know how to live in the
perfect will of God! Amen.
In Psalm 19:7-11, we find the answer.
In verse 10, we find the value, "More to be desired are they
than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the
honeycomb." What then is so valuable and
priceless? The answers would take much more than a lifetime to
completely understand. In fact, in the flesh we might not ever
come close. But, in the next life, in eternal life, we will know
all about it!
In verse seven, we find, "The law
of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord
is sure, making wise the simple." The laws of God are
many and include all His Spiritual Laws, as well as all the laws we
know in this life; the controlling laws of the universe, how they
work, and what they consist of, and the laws we must learn to operate
wisely in His Kingdom. They are sure and complete, making those
wise who know and apply, when appropriate, in our lives.
In verse eight, scripture says, "The
statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment
of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes." God tells
us what our limitations are in our relationships with Him and with
others; the guidelines of conduct and operations or doings we are
called to perform for Him (such as soul winning, missionary,
ministering, etc). They keep us within the Perfect Will of God
for our lives.
In verse nine, it says, "The fear
of the Lord is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the Lord are
true and righteous altogether." These cover all
our relationships and worship of our great Heavenly Father, the Lord
Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. It also tells us that we
are to be dealt with as sons and that when we sin. The
punishment is to restore us into a right relationship with Him.
We never have to worry about God punishing us severely for a very
small sin, but that the punishment will be measured in the degree of
disobedience. He has proved Himself to us in the teachings of
His Son, Jesus Christ, of who He is and what He expects from us.
These are just a few insights as to why
they are to be desired, the value they are to each of us and why we
should seek to learn and understand them. So, at the appropriate
time ,we can apply, with all the wisdom that God has given to us, that
we might be prepared to return to our Heavenly Home, fully qualified
to fulfill the whole purpose that we were created to become.
Experiencing our Heavenly Father,
Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit daily prepares us to live
abundantly, with the most Blessed Hope and power to live to its
fullest. That is why they are so valuable, now and forever, in
eternity. Please test and let God prove to you their value ...
to you and to all of us. He can and will teach you, if you will
only desire to have Him show and teach you. You will have the
most Blessed Life you can experience, in this life as well and the one
Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ say, "I am that I
am." That means that God is! He is also the creator
God. In Hebrews, He states that the creation was done through
His Son, meaning Jesus Christ.
From God being God, we have an orderly universe. We have life
that is higher than animals, because we are created by Him, in His
image. Christians should know that we get all our laws,
justice, righteousness, forgiveness of sins, victory over death, and
a system of society that is based on the rule of law. The
society, thus based, receives liberty, freedom, justice, and the
value systems that are in harmony with God's law of life and all
that pertain therein.
These are the principles that our country was founded; The
Constitution, Bill of Rights, and laws of the land based on God's
law ... thus, giving everyone equal rights, ordained of God and
given to us ... because our freedom is based on His
righteousness and His Law. We, therefore, have a value
system of values based upon His Word. These are undeniable
facts that can't be overlooked, unless one is fool enough to
face God and say to him, "You don't exist.
Therefore, I am god."
The enemy of God is called humanists! Their belief is
based on and centered on man, as the source of all things.
This philosophy is centuries old; devised by Satan to steal,
kill, and rob mankind of their rights, privileges, and knowledge of
God the Father and Jesus Christ.
They, in their philosophy, are called many things; such as atheists,
socialists, leftist, communists, and all other false religions.
Since their origin, they presume that all things and powers
center on man, even with his unregenerate heart filled with
all kinds of evil. They think that they have the wisdom
to create a society which is created and operated by man, thus
eliminating God from their lives ... a world without God! A
society without limits, finite structuring, value
systems, or any other reasoning system based on logic.
They love death and hate God so they can create a society
free of any hindrances to their actions. They have no
moral system, rights and/or law system, or any structure for their
society ... so that every man does what is right in his own eyes.
From this philosophy, you get death, abortion, homosexuality,
murder, rape, pillage, thefts, euthanasia of the elderly, and no
justice. You also go on a downward slide into total anarchy
and warring against everyone. They tell us they love us,
but only love us to die.
This philosophy is enforced by the courts system of saying it is
illegal to teach anything other than humanism in the public
school system. The courts and government state this and
you can be arrested for teaching any other philosophy in schools, from
post graduate down to kindergarten. Abortion was forced upon
us when 76% were against it. But, the courts made the
law, using the police to enforce it and the judges to rule in favor
of humanist's philosophy instead of rightness.
The government, courts, and Congress are all anti-God in
their philosophy, or they would correct this matter.
This is a war against God and we, as citizens,
are caught in the middle of this warfare. While Christians are
on God's side, they leave, vote, and support humanist
politicians through ignorance. They protest abortion and
bad teaching in schools, but don't and won't pay the price for
taking a stand for truth.
Unless we know and understand the picture of the warfare, we wind up
on the losing side, and God is closed out of many lives ... and
the evil will just increase even more: murder, rape, dope,
alcohol, stealing, warfare, rebellion, and all that goes with
Satan and his rule.
Since God is, man is a fool to disregard all the evidence
of His existence and accept a very much lower standard to live
by, which is no standard but relative to what the lowest
thinker thinks and does. Our nation is apparently filled with
many fools and, sorry to say, they are in places of power and
What can we do to stop the deteriorism by mankind to
destroy, kill, and rob us of even life itself.
(1.) Preach the truth.
(2.) Learn about humanist philosophy and their errors in
(3.) Understand the total picture of what is going on and how the
enemy (Satan) and his followers work to destroy our freedoms,
liberties, and our value systems in our country.
Our rights are God given, not man given. If we decree God out
of our country and lives of its people, you will have no
rights, no life, and no justice. Life with out God is
not living. Get in the battle, which is raging at a fever
God is! God is!
