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....

Greetings -

Scriptures are from the King James Bible. 

Nothing goes on that escapes our Lord's radar.  Our enemies are on assignment.  Satan works in a controlled environment.  GOD controls the environment. 

John 19:11
Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above:... 

When our Lord gives our enemies power over us, when we abide in our Lord intimately, persecution works to our advantage.  It is used to strengthen us, to purge us, to prepare us, to equip us, and definitely to prove to us and to the devil that though he fights us, he cannot win.  It's impossible to fight against GOD and win.

Truth be told, we need persecution to become holy soldiers and warriors in the army of GOD.  The Word of GOD instructs us to count it all joy, to be of good cheer, and to think it not strange.  It is for the scriptures to be fulfilled.  GOD shows on through us when we conduct ourselves victoriously in the midst of all the wickedness of Satan.  Satan shows off.  GOD shows on and shines through us with His most High glory.  

This is a great opportunity to extend thanks to those who oppose us.  We need to pray for them, of course, to forsake their perverted and deceived lives.  It's fitting to be thankful because what Satan uses them to do aids in our development in our Lord for His holy purposes.  GOD is the MASTER of it all - forever.

The Holy Spirit led JESUS into the wilderness. 

Luke 4:1
And JESUS being full of he Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness.

GOD hardened Pharaoh's heart because GOD always has a MASTER plan.  Pharaoh foolishly believed that he was on top of the situations.  In truth, GOD used Pharaoh's hard heart to show undeniable proof that GOD is Most High and always on top of it all.  Even some of Pharaoh's servants recognized that Pharaoh was a deceived fool.

Exodus 8:19
Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God:... 

Exodus 9:20
He that feared the word of the Lord among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and cattle flee into the houses.

Exodus 10:7
And Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the Lord their God: knowest though not yet that Egypt is destroyed?

Also, we read in Exodus 6:12 about Pharaoh's magicians, "For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods."

2 Corinthians 12:9, 10

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.  Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

  2. God is certainly on top of it all. And I agree, we can say thanks to our oppressors because in the end, we become stronger and renewed because of the trial. We choose. The enemy does not win when we choose Jesus.

  3. Shalom Sandra-and thanks for sharing this post. I agree with your position in this post. We hear much of the people of YHWH being persecuted for their faith in places like Iran, North Korea, China, and the like; do you believe that persecution will (of a similar nature) is coming to the us in the western world?

    Shalom and thanks in advance

  5. Greetings -

    Thank you all for your comments and loyalty to our Lord.
    It's such a pleasure to know others who are in love with JESUS!

  6. God is on top of it all ... except. He gave Adam & Eve some of His authority over the world. He doesn't violate the authority he gave them & their children. We must pray for permission for Him to come and bring His will to be done in this world. Otherwise, He doesn't show up -- based upon His promise.

    Satan and his rebel angels were driven out of heaven and are down here. He has seduced some of the children of Adam to give him their power. They can use this to influence people like Pharoah to act against God's ultimate will. They use this to persecute God's Christian ambassadors.

    But "if a man's ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him." This means disempowering these demons, blessing anyone who is persecuting us, praying for the Christians to have wisdom and a heart for the Lord. We need to bless anyone who is working or conspiring against us, to pro-actively take out any potential attacks. We need to shut down the demons the animists have planted in the dirt around us.

  7. Amen, Sandra! What comes to my mind is Romans 12:14, "Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse." Also, "I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master..." (John 13:16), and "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first...but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: 'No servant is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also..." (John 15:18-20)

    God Bless!

    Thank you all for your comments.

    We don't always agree but it's important that we share.
    Caring and sharing certainly pleases our Lord.

    I'm grateful that GOD has made us unique...all for His glory and for the advancement of His awesome kingdom.

    GOD FIRST is always the best...

    Prayer: Lord, please teach us all to steadfastly heed the leading of Your Spirit above ALL else.

    Thank You, Lord - Amen
