My Heart has heard you say, "Come and talk wirh me." And my Heart responds, Lord, l am coming."

Psalm 27:8

How many times have you found a quiet place when you felt the Lord wanted you near?

He will bring you Love from above when you are Lonely- scared- hurting inside for someone that is near you, dying.

The Lord wants you to know He is the closest to you when you need help. He is a family you don't have- If you are alone. He is a Strength when you are weak. His creations grow In front of you. The warming of the sun lights up your whole body as He is close to you. The calmness you feel cannot be put in words. He Loves each one with a warmth that leaves you so calm that you feel like you will melt. He will hold you as you talk to Him. You will feel his Love running through you. I have been through this many years with Him. I know if you let yourself become one with Him- there will be nothing you can't ask of Him. And in His time will bring unto you. Thank you Lord-- l Praise your Holy Name. Thank you for Helping me today. I needed you- and you showed up: l can now walk with your Love to Strengthen me. Amen...

hearts,in our bodies,and souls.HIGH AND LIFTED UP IS OUR GOD.LET us pray without ceasing.

I've been praying and studying about JOB, because we have something in common. I think I know why Job lost everything and everyone he loved. The answer may come from a dark place called, "why did this happen to me? The faithful believer?

People have made lots of money writing those, 'WHY do bad things happen to good people, who do good things, books.'

How very deeply we bury things we don't want to see.

If we would search hard enough and submit to be searched by the Holy Spirit, he will reveal a gem.

Greetings Kevin Mack I discovered this mess in the late 1980's when I saw Colonel Oliver North on C Span, in a room full of reporters, admit to congress they traded g uns to the Con tra's for coke with the Iran scandal. North admitted they sold the coke to turn it into cash. Wow they were drug dealers.

I waited for 2 weeks for this news to hit the papers and TV. Nothing happened. It was then I understood that the media was totally controlled. Oh and rep Prez Reagan was in charge then. Funny how the Dems said nothing about this scandal of drugs. They are all in this together with Satan himself in charge.

I was blessed with a Bible believer show me from the scriptures of the last antichrist beast system which would rule the world in the end times. Before I repented and came to Christ, I attended business college, and one thing I learned was how to do research, this before the internet was what it is today.

I was told that Zondervan, the largest printer of Bibles in the English speaking world, is owned by Harper Collins which prints sodomite books and the satan ic bible of the church of say tan. Yes the church of say tan exists. Think about that when you read Veggie tales bible stories to your children. They in turn are owned by the News Corporation which is known as FOX TV. I checked and this is true.

So why is not common knowledge in churches? I am not the only one who knows this? I have been told to leave churches over speaking out about this. Are they in on this? false doctrines? How deep does the rabbit hole go?

check your pastors for everything they say, sheep have no need for hirelings.

Modern Bibles are poison spiritually and the above is the reason.


Chris's comment on 2020-05-03 02:14:39:

Elizabeth, I'm sure you're have read through this book carefully, so I won't give references, but only my opinion.

God was apparently satisfied with Job's conduct of his life & bringing up his family. So Satan comes to God after roaming the Earth (presumably to try to find someone to 'trip up' into sin). He probably found none, as all were involved in something sinful. This must have come up in Satan's conversation with God, which prompted God to say that His servant Job was unlike any other: an upright man who fears Me & hates evil. And so the account goes on to reveal God allowing Satan to have his way with Job, except to take his life (Satan must have received special licence to take life for this testing, that which is reserved for God only). And we know how, through much physical & mental difficulty, Job came through the temptations to still worship & honour God.

So, I see this account, though factual, as one that speaks to me of why sufferings may come to all of us. Why does God permit it? And does God have a purpose in it? The answers to these questions can only be found in the Bible, as any human opinion will invariably be wrong. All pain & suffering comes to us because we are sinners & live in a World affected by the fall of man (Rom 3:23, 8:18). God permits it to the point of His set limitation (1 Cor 10:13), because suffering is a natural part of a fallen existence. If we didn't have pain, hardship & suffering, then we would be a perfect people living in a perfect World. Our sufferings prove to us the condition of our soul. Does God have a purpose in it? Of course to show us our fallen state, but also to alert us to the Way that is open for us to be forgiven for our sins (Jn 3:16, 14:6), that brings on suffering. Do Christians not suffer then? We do suffer, but we now have the Lord Who keeps us & helps us through our trials (Psalm 46 is precious), giving us an eternal hope that keeps our spirits strong, when the physical frame deteriorates.

The Almighty want to test job. He is testing his faith


Elizabeth's comment on 2020-05-02 23:16:20:

Why did God allow Job to suffer

What was His purpose


BSP's comment on 2013-12-01 16:09:34:

God is never to blame for the suffering and wickedness we see around us. Wickedness has absolutely no place in God's personality.


Gregory's comment on 2010-02-18 10:44:33:

Never blame god for your condition, never let you ill situation slide your soul into depression. Amen!
