I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...

Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.



Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.

Sizzle, spark, explode -

Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -

The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.

This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.

Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.

Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

Someone please help me with this question relative to people who work in professions that are in the areas of gambling casinos, liquor stores, bars, dance clubs and the like. When people in such jobs get saved, do they need to quit their jobs because such places do NOT represent righteousness? In particular, now we live in tough economic times and jobs are difficult to get and keep. When they get saved, what do you know about what people in such fields of work do who have families to support and need their jobs for mortgages, food, and other necessities?

I understand that our Lord needs to be sought for guidance...

Those questions have been with me for days, and I felt led to post this for help from others. 

Does anyone know of anyone who has worked in such fields and got saved? What did they do relative to GOD duties and employment matters?

I saw a Christian man on TBN who testified that his employers fired him because He accepted JESUS.  How they did that with laws about religious discrimination, I am not sure.

Thank you to anyone who is inclined to answer the questions that I have asked here.


  1. Greetings -

    Please help with answers to these posted questions.

    Thank you

  2. Since we live near Cripple Creek (gambling area in Colorado) this affects many. Some at church work in restaurants up there and shine Jesus. One friend works security in a casino and is actually able to share the Lord with repeat customers - she feels the Lord has her there for His purposes.

    Another guy from our church worked in doing dishes at one of the casino's restaurants.

    Another worked in the spa of one of the casino hotels. they had struggles with unbelieving bosses but feel the Lord has them there for his time and purpose and they encourage each other and fellowship with each other.

    None of them are dealing cards or taking an active part in the gambling per se.

    Scripture about EARNING your wages by the sweat of your brow and putting your hand to your work and working with all your mind come to mind (my paraphrase) AGAINST gambling - or knowing if you win you might be taking food out of the mouths of a family of a compulsive gambler...


  3. Thank you, Marijo -

    Your answers are very helpful.

  4. Tricky one to be "in the world and not of the world" - I wouldn't want to work there for many reasons but they feel called and the security guard even likes her job!

  5. I believe that some people are called out of it and allowed by our Lord to, at some point, work in more wholesome surroundings. As for those who may are right, it can be tricky. I do not know if I could succeed in such...GOD knows what we don't, of course.

  6. Henry Blackaby advised a bartender turned Christian to stay there. She would advise depressed people to try God in the church. She was a big conduit to bring people to church and Christ.

    We are often fired on trumped up charges. A witch agreed with me that he noticed that. There were times I had to do a tactical retreat to save my job -- and then go back to being righteous after the heat was off. All it takes is a missing piece of equipment and three "witnesses" against you to get fired. Satanists often do this.

  7. Hi Timothy -

    Thank you for your info.

    Now, please bear with me...let me be clear, so the bartender, after salvation, kept mixing/serving drinks and also leading people to seek God in church? Interesting...

    Who is Henry Blackaby?

    I remember what Rebecca Brown, MD said about the witches in the hospital where she worked. In fact, a witch Elaine, was one of Rebecca's patients who later got saved and was ministered to deeply by Rebecca. Elaine later became a fervent Christian...

  8. Hi Sandra,

    Interesting post. I once heard someone say that they were compelled to leave their bartender job after getting saved. That serving alcohol was not what God wanted her to do in her life. And I think I've heard other stories. I guess if you're in a job like that or worse (working in a strip club), the Lord will lead you to a different occupation if you pray and ask Him to do that for you. God understands our tough economic times, but remember recessions don't hinder what God wants to do in the life of the believer. Remember Rev. 3:8. :-)


  9. Hi Judy -

    Thank you for your comments. I truly appreciate that people have commented here about this matter. I needed help with the issue.

    So far what I believe is that the Lord will remove some Christians from such jobs and allow others to remain. GOD can surely get glory in both situations, provided those Christians who work in such places are wholly yielded to the Father GOD in spirit and in truth. Also, I believe that some of those who remain may remain for "a season" to later be removed, as you mentioned about the bartender that you heard about.

  10. Also, Judy, thank you for reminding me about Revelation 3:8. I remember sending you that scripture days ago as led by the Lord. When you were led by the Lord to post it here, I was moved...because He had just dealt with me in prayer this a.m. about open and shut doors as mentioned in Revelation 3:8. WOW! GOD'S amazing actions never cease...

  11. You are right about that. The Lord has truly ministered to me through you and others who have commented on my blog.

    You are right in your assessment that God can have christians in very dark places for a season until He wants to move them. Remember, Jesus ate with tax collectors and other sinners to share the gospel. And he hung out with prostitutes to share the gospel. He came to save that which was lost. So if God keeps us in a dark place to share Christ with those who need him, halleluja! But to remain there, I don't think so.

    Have a blessed weekend!

  12. I referred to Rev. Henry Blackaby who wrote "Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God." He has a theory of how God deals with us that is definitely worth a look-see. Henry Blackaby calls it "a crisis of belief".

    Blackaby argues there are seven realities:
    1. God is always at work around you.
    2. God pursues a continuing love relationship with you that is real and personal.
    3. God invites you to become involved with Him in His work.
    4. God speaks by the Holy Spirit through the Bible, prayer, circumstances and the church(people) to reveal Himself, His purposes and His ways.
    5. God’s invitation for you to work with Him always leads you to a crisis of belief that requires faith and action.
    6. You must make major adjustments in your life to join God in what He is doing.
    7. You come to know God by experience as you obey Him and He accomplishes His work through you.

    His course is definitely worth going through.
