OUR FOUNDATION Like 0 Twitter Mishael T Follow Aug. 12, 2016, 3:20 p.m. in Religion Views: 894 Like us on facebook OUR FOUNDATION To My Brothers and Sisters, Children of God, To our Leaders, and for our Children, Hallelujah to God in the Highest! for a new word; not just to stir our hearts, but to move our feet; not just to digest in our bellies, but to transform and renew our minds! Glory to God on High! for Spiritual Food to nourish us and sustain us! Praises to His Name! for His Helper, whom by His Power and Might manifests within us Fruits of the Spirit, wherein we come to knowing Abba Father, becoming worthy of His Grace, Mercy, and Everlasting Life! Many immigrants who came to the shores of America, were people seeking fertile ground and freedom to worship God. Now, there are factions and nonbelievers within America who want to be free of God. This new society has adopted ancient ways reverberating their motto: In God we trust, as long as He stays out of government, businesses, schools, marriages, relationships—and our lives. This ideology has carried over into the functioning of churches, seeking personal gain, self-rule and to be politically correct, in order to gain and maintain members and monetary rewards. They have adopted new mission statements which fall into the same line of thinking...in God we trust, as long as He allows us to worship as we please and live according to the world. We can not remove our Foundation, nor serve two masters, without destroying ourselves. If we remove our Foundation, on what will we stand? In our weakness, we will fall to every sin and sink further into darkness. Is this not what we see before our eyes, today? Just as the serpent did to Eve, today, he feeds us visions of grandeur, that we can be like God if we just take a bite of the forbidden. With every bite, the darkness feeds our weaknesses, helping them to take root and flourish. Wherein, we find not only America, but the world in its present predicament, overtaken by darkness as we try to dismantle our Foundation. We lie weakened —weakened, tired and asleep. Now, darkness and chaos have run amuck, while the world continues to look for blame. Some say that things aren't that bad, based upon the reported improvement of our economic status. Yeah, "But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." Matthew 4:4 Some say it is not time to sound the alarm. While others say the alarm has been sounded for those who are awake and it is time for the sleepers to awaken. Without a Foundation, the people perish. Instead of help, the darkness sends misery, greed, selfishness, pain, death, spiritual drought and of course blame. The people are given empty promises through laws formed out of fear to deflect blame; laws that can not help them, but provide a false sense of security. Laws that create an illusion that man is in control. God is not pleased and the storms of life are raging. The people cry out, “Who will help us?” Who will you trust, God asks? Yet, we ignore Him, because we are too busy placing blame. God sends or allows another storm. The people cry out to the government, “Why don't you help us?” God asks again, When will you trust ME? The darkness prevails and innocent children are gunned down and we make the same choices over and over again, to trust the world. Men and women of God cry out, “Can't you see? Are you blind? Return to God! Repent! But, their words fall on deaf ears because, the land has become barren and infertile. There is nowhere for the seeds to take root. Or is there? Can you hear their plea? Will the Word circumcise your heart? Will the warm blood of the innocents fertilize the soil? Will the fall of lifeless bodies break the hardened ground to plow the way for new seed and a new harvest? Timing is everything, we've heard--and such is God's timing—it is everything and in everything there is a time and a season, however, it is in God's timing--not man's. God chooses the time, the place and He has already chosen the Son of Man to change the atmosphere. In our time of self-indulgence, God reminds us of who He is and forever will be, the great I AM, The Beginning and The End. Man's time was created by God and given to him as a gift to restore his place in the Kingdom. This Holy Man, the Son of God, came to tell us that the Kingdom is at hand! The prophets have cried out! We have been given the who, what, when and why we must repent, TRULY REPENT--NOT JUST CONFESS OUR SINS, BUT TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS. God does not ask anything of us without providing the how. The 'how' is JESUS, The Author and Finisher of our faith, The Great Redeemer, who keeps us from sin. Jesus is the 'Solid Rock', the 'Corner Stone' within 'The Foundation'--God--Abba Father. We have access to Jesus through God's Holy Spirit--'The Rock' upon which Christ built His church. We must die to self and live in his perfect Light of Salvation--following in His sure and steady footsteps; for because of Him and through Him we are found worthy to stand upon The FOUNDATION. We must not be afraid, cowering or wallowing in self-pity, nor think ourselves exempt of reprove; for God admonishes us so that He may increase our blessings. To understand increase is to know, we have already been blessed! Yet, do we thank Him? Do the praises go up? Or do the rocks cry out in anguish for us and because of us, as we inflict the earth with the wages of sin--rotting flesh and the stench of our iniquity? God has given us bread crumbs, manna, food from Heaven to lead us to Him. If we follow their path, seeking the Truth, the Way and the Life, we will find that all paths lead to a single path, through a single gateway, directly to Him. Who will come? Who will follow? Followers, Soldiers, Spiritual Walkers, the blood-stained banners fly high! The wind blows but one way--forward into the throng--into the thick of the battle! In His time, the battle will turn. Yet, we march on clothed in the Full Armor of God. 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (KJV) You wait...and wait, looking for change. On what do you wait upon? IF you are standing upon the FOUNDATION--ELOHIM, YAHWEH, GOD, OUR FATHER, change has been delivered. YOU have been DELIVERED! JESUS LIVES! The alarm has been sounded. Jesus has given us our instructions to spread the gospel and lead others to Discipleship. Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Followers, Soldiers, Spiritual Walkers... Jesus also instructed His Disciples to do the same. Have we stopped being Disciples and Following Jesus and His Instructions? Where is our Foundation? Has it been laid? Is the CORNERSTONE in place? Matthew 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. The world will always fight over that which is in the world: land; possessions; rights; lusts; hate; etc. God has offered you a new life, in His Kingdom, that shall never pass away; His kingdom here on Earth, now. You can live as a citizen of His Heavenly Kingdom, in peace and abundant life; not because there is no war; not because you have riches; but because you have found true peace in abiding in His Holy Spirit, and bearing His fruits. If you are truly seeking the Kingdom of Heaven first, then, you see the life of your brother as valuable as yours. If you have made hate your God, then, you can not enter the Kingdom; for it is written: John 12:39-41 (NIV) 39 For this reason they could not believe, because, as Isaiah says elsewhere: 40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts, nor turn—and I would heal them.” 41 Isaiah said this because he saw Jesus’ glory and spoke about him. By the Grace and Mercy of God, Your Servant, Mishael ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My Brothers and Sisters, Bondservants of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, In 1944, a housewife named Ruth Caye Jones was concerned about the state of the world. The country was in the middle of World War II. Hitler, the Nazi army and the Japanese military were waging war around the globe. Mrs. Jones was at home completing her daily household tasks. She was burdened and stressed by the turmoil and evil in the world, but felt the Holy Spirit speak to her and brought these comforting words to her. She stopped what she was doing and wrote down both the words and the music to this song. http://hymnoftheweek.net Jeff Mowery IN TIMES LIKE THESE In times like these you need a Savior In times like these you need an anchor; Be very sure, be very sure Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock!

Be very sure, be very sure Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2 Timothy 3 King James Version (KJV) 3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was. 10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
