John 10:27-29 –
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them,
and they follow Me;
and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish;
and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all;
and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.
I and the Father are one.”

Romans 8:12-15 –
“So then, brethren, we are under obligation,
not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh—
for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die;
but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body,
you will live.
For all who are being led by the Spirit of God,
these are sons of God.
For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again,
but you have received a spirit of adoption
as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!”

Matthew 18:2-3 –
“And He called a child to Himself and set him before them,
and said, ‘Truly I say to you,
unless you are converted and become like children,
you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Whoever then humbles himself as this child,
he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.'”
“TALKING TO JESUS” . . . That is basically what prayer is, my friends.
It’s not some stodgy, stuffy Elizabethan speak, that one would use in a Shakespeare play, with “Thou” . . “Thee” . . “Thine” . . . “Thus” . . . THAT is a good example of being a modern day Pharisee (The “spiritually constipated”).
WHO SPEAKS TO ANYBODY LIKE THAT IN “REAL LIFE” ANYWAY? I mean really?!!?
Can you imagine being engaged, ladies (or men) and hearing this:
“Oh my beloved, most adored, virtuous one, thou doth bestow wonderous gifts of joy to my life, with thine presence. . . . Thou art mine, oh desired of mine heart”.
Uhhhhh. . . . Let me say the truth here: GAG!!!
COME ON NOW. . . Speaking in Elizabethan words does NOT make you “holy” OR get you any closer to God . . .
I think we must bore the Heavenly Father with our little religious rituals and sayings, sounding like the teacher in the Charlie Brown cartoons, “wah, wah, wah, wah.”
It’s also NOT reciting a monotone version of “The LORD’s Prayer”, sounding like some Buddhist monk mantra, where there is no love or thought given. . . Just the monotone sounding repetition of “religion” . . . A religious ritual that helps the Pharisees feel better . . . No relationship with Jesus, just ritual. There is depth to the LORD’s prayer, but when it is just a religious activity? It’s just speaking words.
The LORD WANTS A RELATIONSHIP . . . NOT RELIGION!!!! He created us to love us and for us to love Him back.
TALK TO JESUS . . . JUST LIKE YOU WOULD TALK TO YOUR CLOSEST FRIEND.
TELL HIM ABOUT YOUR DAY. Talk to Him about what’s on your mind. Tell Him if something bothers you, or makes you fearful, or makes you bust out laughing loudly, or brings you such grief, you have no more tears left. Tell Him about your hopes and dreams. TALK TO JESUS.. . HE WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU!!!
HE WANTS TO BE A PART OF EVERY PART OF YOUR LIFE.. . . TALK TO HIM. Get to know our Heavenly Bridegroom. Draw closer to Him and let Him into EVERY PART of your life.
Let Him speak to your heart, which may be through the Scriptures, or the “still small voice” of the Holy Spirit, or through dreams, visions and revelations. It can be something simple like this: while going about your day, you might see sunlight streaming through the window, which could be a reminder to you from the LORD JESUS: “I LOVE YOU”
It’s TRULY an amazing, intimate walk with JESUS . . . But YOU choose how close you want to get. The more you let Him in. . . The greater the intimacy.
HERE’S THE CAUTION AND WARNING:
Whatever area you close off to the LORD Jesus . . . .
THAT is the area you allow Satan to continue attacking you.
It’s an “open door invitation” for the demons to have their sulfur hell parties in YOUR life and at YOUR expense.
BECAUSE whatever is not dedicated to and for the Kingdom of Heaven, is for the kingdom of darkness and that includes ANY area that is not given to Jesus in your life.
INVITE JESUS INTO EVERY AREA OF YOUR LIFE AND BOOT OUT SIN AND ALL OF THE DEMONIC FORCES THAT IMPACT YOUR LIFE . . We serve a HOLY God, who can NOT allow ANY sin into the Kingdom of Heaven.
DAILY we must ask the Holy Spirit to search our heart to see if there is anything UNHOLY in His sight. WE must repent. We must forgive ALL. We must maintain a CLEAN walk with our HOLY LORD GOD.

PLEASE TAKE ALL OF THESE POSTS TO THE LORD IN PRAYER FOR HIS CONFIRMATION.
I don’t need to hear why you don’t believe what I share. I’ll tell you again, to take these posts to the LORD in prayer. I won’t engage in debate. . . time is too short. . . I’m too weary and it’s a WASTE of time!!!
If you have honest questions, yes. . . Or not quite sure, that’s absolutely understandable, some of this stuff is difficult for me too, so I must seek the LORD for confirmation and FULL TRUTH, just like you.
If it’s to bring the “you are wrong” comments. . .no. . . Those won’t be posted, Nor will the comments of Mockers & scoffers, those with hateful comments, and those who bring discord. . . .
POOF!!! There They go . . . Comments Bye-bye to the trash!!!!
ANY ADS LOCATED ON MY BLOGS ARE NOT MY CHOICE, NOR DO I ENDORSE ANY OF THE THEM. . . I have a free account from WordPress, which may place ads of their choosing on my posts. I suppose it’s a good example of “you get what you pay for”. Currently “free” is all I can afford, but THANK YOU JESUS, I’m able to do this at all.
