  2. Moses Encourages the People Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. ( Deut. 31:6 [KJV]).

  4. LiveLaughLove, The NIV, was the second bible version, that I stared out using. I was taught on KJV. I was in my 20s, while in Bible Study, the teacher gave me a NIV Bible. The first study we were being taught was in "The Book of Revelation." So, at the time I thought, oh wow, The Book of Revelation. I did not finish the class, but one day years later I picked up that Bible, and started to read it from Genesis, to Numbers, from that NIV Bible. God give you what you will need in the future. Surprisingly, the Word that I received from reading those books, took be for years. I stood on what I learned, and what God had reveal to me, from those books, and shared them with others. I learned a lot, and what God revealed to me through reading the NIV Bible. I am a KJV, person when it comes to quoting, and teaching. But I learned from all of the versions along with research, and with the Holy Spirit as my Guide and Teacher, He will always reveal to us what He want us to know. Thank you for your post. I enjoyed reading, and hearing your viewpoint. It will encourage others who are struggling with the KJV. abc

  6. I know everyone has their own opinion but to you, what bible version is easiest for you to understand while reading? I have the NIV, which I only use when I am at church because that is the main version they use. I also have the NLT (New Living Translation) which I have found to be a little easier to understand but I am hoping to find a translation to that is even easier to understand. Is there one?
  7. Hello ladies. I am married to a wonderful husband for almost 19 years (August 11th) We have 3 children together...17 year old daughter, 14 year old son, and a 12 year old son. I am hoping to find that this is a place that I can build some lady friendships and get some good christian advice.
  8. Hi Ladies, I want to preface this scripture first. Alive, Alive my Jesus is Alive. Now we all know that Jesus is Alive and sitting at the right hand of the Father interceding for us. When I sing this song, I'm thinking about, talking about and singing about, these words, "Alive, Alive, my Jesus is Alive in me" the hope of Glory. Is Jesus Alive in you? Paul wrote in Colossian 1:27-29, we are going to start at verse 24-29, with the focus on v.27-29. Amen. Paul's Suffering for the Church (2 Corinthians 11:16-33) 24Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church: 25Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God; 26Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 27To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 28Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: 29Whereunto I also labour, striving according to his working, which worketh in me mightily. (Col. 1:24-29 [KJV]). Again I ask this question. Is Jesus Alive in you? https://youtu.be/oDiuUbal9f0 Alive, Alive, Alive For Evermore Alive, alive Alive for evermore My Jesus is alive, Alive for evermore Alive, alive Alive for evermore My Jesus is alive. Alive, alive Alive for evermore My Jesus is alive, Alive for evermore Alive, alive Alive for evermore My Jesus is alive. Sing hallelujah Sing hallelujah My Jesus is alive for evermore; Sing hallelujah Sing hallelujah My Jesus is alive.

  15. Think on These Things 8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 9Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.(Phil 4: 8-9 [KJV])

  18. My Study today was " Capture Your thoughts Taking thoughts captive means controlling them instead of letting them control you. — Priscilla Shirer We were created in the image of God, and we are His masterpieces. What would our lives be like if we lived like we believed that truth? The biggest reason we don’t is because we have let toxic thoughts run rampant in our minds. We can’t let them dictate our lives—we must choose to capture our thoughts. Taking our thoughts captive will be one of the toughest battles we engage in. It’s so much easier to just entertain the toxic thought. The effort comes when we engage in the battle. Even if we entertain the thought, we can still take it captive. It truly is better to do it late than never. When the Bible says to take our thoughts captive, that means we have the power to do something about it. As Christians, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead lives in us. With the Holy Spirit’s help, we can manage our thoughts. Here’s an example: let’s say there’s someone in your life you need to forgive. Every day, you remember what they did to you. You can’t seem to let it go or heal from it. You might start to have thoughts like, “I don’t really need to forgive this person” or “What they did to me is unforgivable.” These are the toxic thoughts you must take captive. Recognize that it is causing you to inner turmoil. Then, choose truth from God’s Word. You might even pray, “God, I’m choosing to push this thought aside instead of entertaining it. I know you have forgiven me of so much in my life. Help me to extend the same forgiveness to this person.” And then you do it again and again and again until it “takes.” You’ll know healing is occurring when you look back on the situation and the sting of pain isn’t as intense. You will see it as something that happened to you—past tense—not something that is Priscilla Shirer really blessed me today. Father God we pray that we can capture our thoughts, and replace them with godly thoughts and actions. Father God we pray for strength to do your will, concerning our toxic thoughts, and we ask to be led by you at all times. In Jesus name we pray, and ask it all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
  19. It is very important that we stay healthy during this time. We should try and get in proper exercise on a weekly schedule. We must watch what we eat, especially if we are not active. We can manage meals if we put in in preparation time. Shopping for only what is needed, washing and cleaning way ahead of time. Meal planning the night before, or earlier morning preparations for (breakfast, lunch and dinner). I eat small meals, so I have to have the food ready, because I get hungry fast. I was walking 3 to 4 times a week. I have lost weight. I am getting lazy now, because I don't want to loose any more weight. I think I should continue to walk being in the house is not good. Walking is relaxing, and relieves stress. I have a spin bike, however I have to change the seat. What are some of you doing?

    Vegan Discussion

    "Veganism is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products, and all other animal-derived ingredients. Many vegans also do not eat foods that are processed using animal products, such as refined white sugar."[1] How to Go Vegan? Switching to a plant-based diet is easier than you would ever expect. Instead of trying to cut animal products out of your diet, crowd them out. Constantly seek out new vegan foods. Then read reliable material on vegan nutrition to make sure your diet is properly planned.[2] [1]https://www.thespruceeats.com/what-do-vegans-eat-3376824 [2]https://www.vegan.com/
  21. Who among you are Vegan? Tell us why you are Vegan as well? Do you know any good Vegan recipes (made with raw fruits and vegetables)? Do you know any good Vegan recipes (cooked foods as well)?
  22. [AMP] puts it in a perspective (a way of looking at or thinking about something) way. 38 For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced—beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Rom. 8:38-39 [AMP]). I like how it said it in the [KJV] 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Rom. 8:38-39 [KJV]).
  23. Guarded by, or Protected by Christ through this Coronavirus Situation. Do you Know that you are Guarded by, or Protected by Christ? My Refuge and My Fortress (Psalm 91) 1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. God “guards” the lives of his faithful ones,” all that means is that, believers in Jesus are his faithful ones, that includes us. refuge and fortress. “guarded” as uses in the Bible are; 1. Hedge about 2. Keep safe 3. Protect 4. Watch carefully 5. Preserve Let us think about these questions: Is God guarding us? Where is He guarding us? For what purpose? Do you feel like someone who is guarded by Christ? Or Are you feeling? (1) Unstable (2) Unsettled or (3) Immature? When you lived at home with your parents you felt safe. God tell us in these verses. Let us look at the answers; v. 3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. “snare of the fowler” mean? As with the bird, the snare of the fowler is designed to bring you down from the heights from your God’s given potentials. The fowler wants you down, and sets a trap, to take away your full potential, to control you. That you may not reach the riches of his glory, for your life. What is in your life, that is designed to bring you down? Is it a he, she, something, or things that hinders us? “noisome pestilence” mean? The pestilence is called noisome, or "annoy some," hateful" or that causes trouble or distress. What are some things that causes stress in your life, could they be problems, lack of knowledge, relationship, sickness, money, bills, people, bad behavior, or you? Trust in the Lord (God, His written Word, and Jesus) in our actions. Which means be a doer and not just a hearer. WHY, because His truth shall be your shield and buckler (armor, protection, or defense). We are protected, covered with his feathers, and under his wings. We can see there is no need to feel unstable, unsettled or, immature. He says do not be afraid of terror, or problems at night. Nor arrows, or destruction by day. v. 7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. 9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Have we asked God to teach you more? To understands Him more. With God being our protector, has He begun to transform us, our thinking, and behaviors? I want to share one of my own life experiences, of when, I have felt God’s presence of guarding, and protection, and all that concerns me. As, I share, I want us to think of a time of this transformation, (it is a step by step process, here a little and there a little, line upon line and precept upon precept. Maybe it, 1. has taken place in our life, and we identified that it was only God who protected us. 2. has not taken place, because we failed to identify with it, when it happened. 3. has taken place, and we ignored it. As I speak of my story think of a time in our life where we have not trusted God, or allowed him to guard us, or protect us. Because we had control of it. It was a time that I would drive my daughter to practice for a school play, at the La Mirada Theater. I would sit in the Starbucks nearby until she was done. I grew tired of the sitting. I had a conversation with her, I told her, that we have taught her everything she needed to know. The plan became to get her a car and let her drive. I realized that it was time for her to grow up, and I needed to trust God, and to trust her. That day came, I reminded her of everything I could think of, to look out, do you have your driver’s license, do not take anyone in the car with you. That evening came and I watched her in the car go all the way down the streets, stop at the stop sign, and turn the corner. Out of my sight, but protected by him. I was thinking about all the things that could happen. In my spirit, I heard these words, God is protecting her, and everything concerning me. God gave me comfort, transformation begun, trusting God to protect. Read these verses, God loves us v. 14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation. (This comes by, belief in God, knowing Him, His name, calling upon Him, and knowing He will answer (is shown in our actions) It is our responsibility to seek God, His will, and His ways. In order for us to grow into the knowledge and understanding, of His real love. We can be transformed in living a (1) stable life, (2) being settled in peace, and (3) mature spiritually in Christ. The natural man tends to think of a Refuge or a Fortress as a natural place, a physical place, for example, where is my fortress, I do not see it? God encourages us to learn his Word, with the help of the Holy Spirit, that we must seek, His ways as it is written in the Bible, and shared by one in Christ Jesus. For example, Pastors, Teachers, Evangelists, Christian Mentors, or individuals who know Him. In KJV Romans 8:11 it is written, “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” How do we learn? Various ways are: through a personal relationship with God, in personal study, including bible study, Sunday morning service, or through seeking God through scriptures, and our personal experiences? By a Savior who dwells in us who sent the Holy Spirit, 1 Peter 2:2 says, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: He does it so that we can be equipped, 2 Timothy 3 v. 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. Summary: Thru His protection, it is part of becoming: (1) Stable, know that God, protects, and guards us. (2) Settled, knowing that He guards us, and all things concerning us. (3) Mature, in that Christ, that dwells in us, that brings about spiritual maturity. Remember this: His Word is True in Romans 8:11 it is written, “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” He has His reasons, protecting the gifts in us, for His people, and His plan to draw others to Christ. Drawing them from the world, into eternal life. Invitation of Prayer: If you are feeling unstable, unsettle or immature, just remember you are a faithful one. You have been risen with Christ and Our Lord is guarding you, protecting you, you don’t have to fear the snare of the fowler or noisome of life, Trust that the Lord have you cover with his feathers, and under His wings. Pray this prayer with me. Jesus come into my heart, take away my sins, write my name in the book of life, and give me you Holy Spirit. I pray this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen

    Single Mom's

    Single Moms, This is really a great place for single moms. I found so much joy here. I found so much support. I found that the Holy Spirit has always given to me a word, or message for His people. I look forward to support any questions that you may have, and never had an opportunity to ask. God has planted me here to support, and to receive support in this season. abc
  25. There are so many but I'll start with these; “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” —Psalm 27:1 “It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” —Deuteronomy 31:8 “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” —Psalm 23:4 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” —John 14:27 “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” —Psalm 46:1 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort.” —2 Corinthians 1:3 “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” —John 16:33 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” —Matthew 5:4 “Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” —Psalm 55:22 “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” —Romans 8:37-39
  26. Now that some of the cities are open, there is a greater chance of getting the virus. So, my daughter, and I decided to remain in place until we see what happens. People are anxious, and I do understand why. I am praying that the numbers does not increase the number of cases of coronavirus. The bible speaks for us to "6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Phil. 4:6-7 [NKJV]). For now we are staying put.

    Our plans vs. God's plans

    christianmom, I have experienced some of the same concerns, and changes with events (graduations, birthdays, weddings, Mother’s Day, vacations, etc.) that we had planned, or scheduled. We will now have to postpone, passed by, wait, and/or be scaled down. I am all for flattening the curve, and doing my part to actively be concerned, and I love sharing my God's given gifts, with helping others who are not sick, sick, who had loss of life (socially, spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially, drained). Also, it has taken a toll on trust in governments, politically, communities, and systems, as well as on some individuals, families, and friends, and you name it, etc. You are so right when you said be kind to others. The bible tells us to be a friend, show yourself friendly, listed below are a few words from God, written in His Word. Friends are faithful. “Friends love through all kinds of weather, and families stick together in all kinds of trouble.” (Prov. 17:17 [MSG]). Friends polishes each other. “You use steel to sharpen steel, and one friend sharpens another. (Pro. 27:17 [MSG]). Friends are all in it together. “Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. Laugh with your happy friends when they’re happy; share tears when they’re down. Get along with each other; don’t be stuck-up. Make friends with nobodies; don’t be the great somebody.” (Rom. 12:14-16 [MSG]). Friends can mean family, relative, sisters or brothers, neighbors, or just other humans. I believe we are for sure learning lessons in this situation God is teaching us a lot about ourselves, as human beings, Christians, and relationships. He spoke these words in the lesson of the fig tree, “32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” (Matt. 24::32-36 [KJV]). The Witnesses are: (Mark 13:28-31; Luke 21:29-33). Great topic. abc
