watch out for anger, it destroys

"Never be angry with your neighbor because his religious views differ from your own; for all the branches of a tree do not lean the same way." ~William Scott Downey


What truth, we are not all the same branch, yet from the same tree, maybe, so let us love one another regardless and be grafted in not grafted out, yes?

Luke 6:32

For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them


Just some more steak to eat, chew it up well first though?

All God and none of me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

God doesn’t call the qualified, God qualifies the called

see the peace that comes from God

God does just love you


1.  Make peace with your past, so it doesn’t spoil your present or future.

2.  What others think of you or what you think others think of you, is it worth listening to?

3.  Time does heal all, if we give God the time to show us how?

4.  No one else really is the reason for one’s happiness, only God is, if you find the unfathomable love that he has given to all that believe in him, Start with you are forgiven by God and from God through Son, Christ.

Ephesians 1:7

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Ephesians 4:32

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

Colossians 1:14

In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Colossians 2:13

And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses

James 5:15

And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

1 John 2:12

I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.


By this forgiveness that is complete from God we thus by belief in the Christ are made:

Colossians 1:22

In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

5.  Refrain from comparing your life to others, your journey is not the same as others. Go in prayer and seek the Love of God, not others. You might see a bunch of good looking fruit on other trees and one piece of fruit on yours. Which one is real? Yours, which is what is most important for ours, personally to be real, whether a bunch or just one piece of fruit. Others that we look upon and envy, just might be fake? So maybe, let’s take care of our own board in our own eye, before we step out to help our neighbor, yes maybe?

6.  Consider, thinking too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Much, can this cause doubt in our Savior Christ, where God gave us two ears and one mouth, so we can listen to God twice as much as we think and speak?

7.  Rejoice in the fact that we do not have to solve anyone’s problems, when through Christ all problems are already solved in God the Father, if we see this below:

1 John 4:19

We love him, because he first loved us.


Ephesians 3:16-18 King James Version (KJV)

16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;


1 John 4:16-18  King James Version (KJV)

16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.


Thanks for listening to God in your ear, through your thinking to set you free in God through Son.

God's power not anyone else's


This was started by another brother in Christ, and it is added to with permission thanks Gerald

Are you in a struggle to overcome sin or addictions. Can't be done with self-will or can it?. Scripture: Not by power, nor by might saith the Lord, But by my Spirit. That be Grace. So might you think Grace is a license to sin? How untrue. The law exposed our sin, which had already brought death to us all through Adam and Eve who ate from that tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God’s grace through Son removed sin at the cross and brought everlasting life to all that have chosen to believe God. So ask for Grace to help in all of your spiritual needs. Be an over comer by the Grace of God not self-leaned will power and obedience. Why? Because:

Romans 8:8

So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

Romans 8:3

For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

Romans 8:1

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:4

that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:5

For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

Romans 8:9

But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

Romans 8:13

For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

2 Corinthians 3:3

forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

Galatians 4:29

But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.

Galatians 5:16

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh

Galatians 5:17

For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would

Galatians 6:8

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

Ephesians 6:12

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Philippians 3:3

For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

1 Timothy 3:16

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

Hebrews 12:9

Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

1 Peter 3:18

For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

1 Peter 4:6

For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

1 John 4:2

Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

1 John 4:3

and every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.


So then what are we to be in and of: the flesh carnal mind set or of the mindset of the Spirit of God?

Romans 12:2 King James Version (KJV)

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


So maybe we all need to read and ask God to personally show us each truth in God through Son? How deep in this Love?

Ephesians 3:16-18 King James Version (KJV)

16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;


Just some food to eat Spiritually for you all to grow unto the maturity in God’s amazing love to all, Thanks

How does one overcome? And Love as God does


Matthew 7:12 King James Version (KJV)

12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Therefore whatever I do to another is that what I want done to me? Or is that how I view God the creator is doing to me? Or is this the way I treat others a result of the way I view I have been treated by others?

Have you heard of the flight or fight scenario? That this is what the animal kingdom does upon confrontation; do we not do the same thing in any confrontation? Fight and or fight? And of course if backed into a corner, we fight back or not, and either then kill or be killed. Look at what Christ did in going to his death, and read about all those miracles witnessed. Why did he go to his death and take the attacks of those evil men in that day? Why did he not fight back? The answer might be in the resurrection you think?

Colossians 2:13-17 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;  14 blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;  15 and having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:  17 which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.


Colossians 2:13-17 Living Bible (TLB)

13 You were dead in sins, and your sinful desires were not yet cut away. Then he gave you a share in the very life of Christ, for he forgave all your sins,  14 and blotted out the charges proved against you, the list of his commandments which you had not obeyed. He took this list of sins and destroyed it by nailing it to Christ’s cross.  15 In this way God took away Satan’s power to accuse you of sin, and God openly displayed to the whole world Christ’s triumph at the cross where your sins were all taken away.


16 So don’t let anyone criticize you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating Jewish holidays and feasts or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths.  17 For these were only temporary rules that ended when Christ came. They were only shadows of the real thing—of Christ himself.

If there is no flight or fight, how can the enemy win? If you stand in God’s power as in the First Testament, with Midrach, Shadrach, and Abednego,in the day of King Nebechenessar, where they did not fight or flight. They just stood for their belief and were thrown into the fire and the fire touched them not, why? Because of their belief God protected them. Read the story of.

Whether we die or live we are the Lord’s.

Micah 5:9

Your hand will be lifted up in triumph over your enemies, and all your foes will be destroyed.

Stand in full assurance with God unto death if that is what is.

No flight or fight, just stand and not be tossed to and fro.

Does God just love you or not? People only do, if you agree, and fight or flight if they do not. So whose court are you going to stand in? Will you stand like Stephen did in Acts, where he was stoned to death for his belief that God does not dwell in buildings, and said as he gave up his ghost, forgive them Father for they not know what they do, just as Christ said the same as he was being crucified on the cross.


Acts 7:48-60 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,  49 Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?  50 Hath not my hand made all these things?

51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.  52 Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:  53 who have received the law by the disposition of angels, and have not kept it.

54 When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.  55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,  56 and said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.  57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,  58 and cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul.  59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.  60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.


So will we stand in the steadfastness that God just love us and took away our sin, all of it at the cross? Is there anymore forgiveness from God to be executed from God to us? Did Stephen ask for anymore? Did Paul, did Peter, Did James, did any of the new covenant receptors ever ask for anymore forgiveness after receiving the forgiveness God gives through the cross of Son?

Please search and find anywhere the word asks to ask for more forgiveness after receiving the forgiveness provided through Christ at the cross in his shed blood?

Remember this as you look?

Hebrews 9:22

And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

1 John 2:12

I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake.

Homwardbound, Thanks for listening

love fulfilled



That was Christ's preaching to his own that he came for in showing us all that we can't perform these things complete, that it is impossible as he said this to his own disciples as they saw the rich man walk away sadly. They had already heard other things like cut off the hand, foot or gouge out the eye if you sin. better for part of us to go to heaven than all of us to go to hell.


This was done before the cross and was under Law. Was Christ fulfilling Law and Prophets that predicted him? Yes and at the same time annihilating us, as in we can't be perfect. So when the disciples were convinced of this not being able to go to heaven unless they became a torso, all limbs cut off and tongue cut out along with eyes. For they heard loud and clear that no matter what they did or do, they were not going to make it to heaven

So they ask Jesus:




Matthew 19:25-26 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? 

26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

So when has this been made possible? or has this been made possible, since there is nothing we can do to add or take away from God's truth where he did this

Colossians 1:22 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

22 in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

Now is the above Love? While we were yet sinners Christ did what?

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.


What does this enable God to do for you or anyone that believes? Yes that is right give you new life here and now in God's Spirit, so we do the love of God because we now see that God first

1 John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.

This can only be done in God's born again Spirit through the resurrected Christ shown to us all by Pentecost

Acts 2:17

And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

Acts 2:18

and on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:


Died for all


Christ died for the sin of the whole world, all except unbelief in Christ unto Father, and unbelief is what we are born with in the flesh, when first born and it is selfish, the flesh that is, you know kill or be killed attitude. As we grow up in this world, being taught fleshly wisdom, we are taught to believe or not. We see all sorts of things here in this world, that are not good for us, yet they a lot of times look good and are not. Anyone agree with this, been harmed, harmed others and harmed self. Nothing is new under the sun, we all have been harmed and harmed others as well as our self’s and do not understand why, is this true, or has it ever been true?

You see, we all have had bad happen, we all seek revenge or want revenge for the wrong done to us, and do not seem to understand this about the universe, here we live in.

Any revenge has a way of rebounding back to that person(s), just like gravity can’t be defied. Gravity can be slowed down by Parachute, but gravity still is gravity, what goes up comes down.

Now God is that parachute, for us all that believe in God. This is because God does love us so much that he gave his only begotten son for us. And many people take this for granted without really realizing it. How many of us are keeping God at our forefront of our minds daily? How many of us are caught up in this world and its affairs? Not that it is a bad thing to be caught up in, but can it be?

 Christ did this so, that anyone that denies his Father’s love will have no excuse, when time comes for the new earth and new Heaven to come into play.

Romans 5:8  But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!

Romans 5:10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!

How many sins were taken on at the cross all, a few or none for us all here, then, before and now today?

Was it not to redeem Israel, is that not who Christ came for, Father’s first chosen?

Luke 24:20-22 New International Version (NIV)

20 The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; 21 but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel. And what is more, it is the third day since all this took place. 22 In addition, some of our women amazed us. They went to the tomb early this morning

Mark 16:6

“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.

Luke 24:6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:

Acts written by Luke:

Acts 1 New International Version (NIVJesus Taken Up Into Heaven

1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach 2 until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. 3 After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. 4 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. 5 For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”


So after the day of Pentecost came, and many a souls saved through belief, was this done by human flesh or the Spirit of God living through those chosen disciples?

If it were Human flesh, then why were they instructed to wait? So it was God that came upon them and spoke through them to the crowd. They the Disciples were nothing more than vessels, being used by God to express his love to them, speaking in each of their own languages, is this correct?

So it is only God, period that gets through our own selfish flesh, not any man, is this correct?

So does God love the entire species here on earth? Did Son go to the cross for all, or a few?

If God only went for a few as it was shown only the first Chosen at first, then how could God claim love unless, he died for all?

Romans 11:1-24 New International Version (NIV)

The Remnant of Israel

11 I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don’t you know what Scripture says in the passage about Elijah—how he appealed to God against Israel: 3 “Lord, they have killed your prophets and torn down your altars; I am the only one left, and they are trying to kill me”? 4 And what was God’s answer to him? “I have reserved for myself seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal.” 5 So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. 6 And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.


7 What then? What the people of Israel sought so earnestly they did not obtain. The elect among them did, but the others were hardened, 8 as it is written:

“God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes that could not see  and ears that could not hear, to this very day.”

9 And David says:

“May their table become a snare and a trap,

    a stumbling block and a retribution for them.

10 May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see,

    and their backs be bent forever.”


Ingrafted Branches

11 Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious. 12 But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles, how much greater riches will their full inclusion bring!


13 I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I take pride in my ministry 14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them. 15 For if their rejection brought reconciliation to the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? 16 If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches.


17 If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root, 18 do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you. 19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.” 20 Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but tremble. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.


22 Consider therefore the kindness and sternness of God: sternness to those who fell, but kindness to you, provided that you continue in his kindness. Otherwise, you also will be cut off. 23 And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24 After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!


So are we seeing and hearing in the Spirit of God, or are we working hard at it to be saved and or stay saved?

It is by what grace, not of works

Romans 11:6 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Ephesians 2:8-9

 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.

So did God take care of it all or not? Do you believe God in this or not?

Look at this, what is states Christ did for us:


Colossians 1:1-23 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother,  2 to the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.


3 We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,  4 since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,  5 for the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;  6 which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:  7 as ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of Christ;  8 who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit.


9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;  10 that ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;  11 strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;  12 giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:  13 who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:  14 in whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:  15 who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:  16 for by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:  17 and he is before all things, and by him all things consist.  18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.  19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;  20 and, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.


21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled  22 in the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:  23 if ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

It is by belief and belief alone one receives the righteousness from god found through the death of the Son, and we thus are a new in a new Spirit life filled to the full, our cup runneth over, in thanksgiving and praise.

Praying we all get it and got it, so we can rest in Father through Son’s finished work at the cross for all that do believe it is what it is.
