Hello my fellow Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ:
Something has weighed in my heart to share an additional piece of knowledge with you, in reference to the Global Persecution of Christians. We must keep in mind that Jesus Christ has said, (as quoted in all of the Gospels, “While you are being persecuted, remember that I was persecuted, as well.” There is no justification for ANY genocide. Only God has the ability, as the Father of CREATION, to create and destroy. And those who know Yahweh, Jehovah, Devum, Allah, God, know that He is a loving God. In the end, we are all held accountable for our own actions, good or bad.
I have read the following series of books, which I found very powerful. They consist of stories, throughout history, of Christian people from all over the world, who died in the Name of Jesus Christ, and His Love, at the Cross. I have always believed that Jesus Christ’s Life demonstrated what we would all need to endure, as a part of Mankind, in order to conquer Evil. There is not one temptation or trial, that Jesus, Himself, endured as the Son of God, that we as human beings endure as Mankind. He showed us how we should conquer them. And in these books, it illustrates exactly how these Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ, demonstrated conquering persecution, and honoring the Father. They are truly inspiring stories. We should not forget our brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, who die in His Name. What these stories share are illustrations of what true belief and faith is, in honoring the love that Jesus Christ shed at the Cross, out of His Love for ALL of Mankind (not just for Christians) And persecution of ANY KIND is wrong in the Eyes of the Father of Creation. So please have a read through these courageous people’s stories, and let their deaths be not in vain.

Spending time alone with Me (Jesus) is essential for your well-being. It is not a luxury or an option; it is a necessity. Therefore, do not feel guilty about taking time to be with Me. Remember that Satan is the accuser of believers. He delights in heaping guilt feelings upon you, especially when you are enjoying My Presence. When you feel Satan’s arrows of accusation, you are probably on the right track. Use your shield of faith to protect yourself from him. Talk with Me about what you are experiencing, and ask Me to show you the way forward. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to Me, and I will come near to you.
“The Silent Battle” is a poem which was inspired by me during a particularly trying time in my life, within my spiritual walk. And seeing that I am going through another stage of transition in my spiritual walk, I thought that this would be a good poem to post again.
Remember that yes, there are wars all over the world, but we ALL are in warfare of our own, everyday, a SPIRITUAL WARFARE
As the days goes by;
I sit in my bed and cry…
Thinking of all the things that occurred within that day;
Of wrong that were noticed and ignored, went without a say.
How many times does one justify a lie?
Whether big or small, still false in God‘s Eyes.
We have justified killing, stealing, and scheming;
That would allow for us to “survive” for the reward of earthly riches that keep ungodly hearts, dreaming.
Today, people are so quick o point a finger;
Instead of refining themselves, they allow for their pride to dominate and linger.
We are now entering a day where evil is reigning over the world and its ways;
Our goal must be to stay focused on God, in the end that is what pays.
For God loves us so muc…can you not see?
By sending His Son, Jesus, they both showed us how…

In my lifetime, I had come across a few movies that have inspired me in some shape or form….when it comes to exploring my faith more. They are alittle unorthodox in themes….and of course, interpretation varies from viewer to viewer, but thought of sharing:
3. Book of Eli
4. Passion of the Christ
Check them out….and if you would like….tell me what you think?

3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
