Praise the Lord! We are ok, but I understand this was felt all the way in KS, as well as way southern OK, too. On the rector scale it registered a 4.8 and may be updated higher.
He has risen from the dead and He is LORD!!
I was reading wonderful spark blogs, praising the LORD when the house and sofa I sat on began to move - rocking and rolling!
A LOUD boom
sound ROARED IN THE HEAVENS and the entire building shook! while I sat quietly ....... PRAISING MY GOD!
Folks, we all know the times we are living in are spoken of in the bible as 'the last days. (US BABY BOOMERS HAVE SEEN INCREDIBLE STRIDES IN HISTORY!) Yet, from the political (yes, I finally said it!) arena, social, economical, environmental and Spiritual, all inclusive, we are lost!
(So glad my DF isn't alive to mourn the condition of His
beloved U.S.A.!! In 2001 he passed to the other side just before 9-11. I
him so much but knew GOD saw He would have died of a broken heart had he lived to witness it.)
For my friends on Spark and new people also, I hope you have your foundation firmly planted on the rock.
His name is JESUS! Acts 4:12
He is the (roaring) Lion of the tribe of JUDAH!
He has many other names, as well.
Here are a few of HIS NAMES that you may download in this painting I create. (though I'm not sure what spark download will look like. I own the copyright because it's my painting so take it if you want, PLEASE)
Oh, and PS: I lost 3 more pounds! i am so slow at recording my losses! Took me almost a week last time! I'm recording this right away!!
1 more pound and I'll be living in 180ville!
Read! 1 Thessalonians 5:1-9:
verse3: While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
5 You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
Praise GOD WE ARE ALLOWING HIS HOLY SPIRIT GIFT OF SELF-CONTROL TO RULE OVER OUR DESIRES just as He wished for us!
Verse6: So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled.
For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. (we can say GLUTTONY for in GOD'S EYES IT IS THE SAME)
How to fight the fight:
8: But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
WE CAN HAVE HIS PEACE !
