06-14-18 FaithLine Devotion SATAN PRETENDS TO BE AN ANGEL OF LIGHT…

My dear brothers and sisters, of FaithLine: “Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced 1sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great, and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, “This man is rightly called the Great Power of God.” They followed him because HE HAD AMAZED THEM FOR A LONG TIME WITH HIS SORCERY.” (Acts 8:9-11) 1mageia: magic, magic arts

This deceiver was practicing magic, amazing people and exalting himself as one using God’s great power. Philip comes to town with the real power of God, many get saved, supposedly Simon but did he really turn himself over to God? Well, Peter and John came to town to teach about the Holy Spirit…

“Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit. When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, HE OFFERED THEM MONEY and said, “Give me also this ability so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 8:17-19)

Peter said: “…your money will be destroyed with you!” You can’t buy God’s gift with money?” All of God’s gifts are freely given by faith distributed by God to whom He chooses, for His glory…

MAKE US WILLING VESSELS TO BE USED OF YOU LORD…

FaithLine, the bible says: “…now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired.”

06-13-18 Loved One’s Devotion BE VERY CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY TO GOD…

My awesome, Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: “…you are a mere man. SO, WHO ARE YOU TO TALK BACK TO GOD? Scripture says, “Can what is made say to the one who made it, Why did you make me like this?'” Isn’t the potter free to make different kinds of pots out of the same lump of clay? Some are for special purposes. Others are for ordinary use.” (Rom. 9:20-21)

Imagine, there was a time before creation when it was the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit; everything was perfect, then God created man out of what He had, He formed man with perfect working parts and breathed into him the breath of life and man became a living soul. So, whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” (1 Corin. 10:31) He made us to worship and be obedient to Him…

“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out! “Who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor?” “Who has ever given to God, that God should repay them?” FOR FROM HIM AND THROUGH HIM AND FOR HIM ARE ALL THINGS. TO HIM BE THE GLORY FOREVER! AMEN.” (Rom. 11:33-36)

WE ARE FROM GOD AND WE ARE CREATED FOR GOD

Notice: [We must understand that the bible says:] “So, whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” !!!That’s for you: Stephanie, Ethan, Camden, Olivia, Aidan, Landon, Kinsley, Annika and Kaleigh

06-12-18 Loved One’s Devotion ELVA HOWARD – ALL IS WELL…

My awesome, Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: “The LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.” (Psa. 118:23)

When Randy Howard was the General Overseer he assigned a prayer team, which I was very privileged, along with sister Elva Howard and others, to be a part of. We would meet once a month until it got close to Assembly time, then we would meet weekly. During one of these intense prayer times at Elva’s home, one very dear brother fell out on the floor lost all his bodily functions and as I was about to say to myself “oh no my brother has…” I was interrupted by a very authoritative and loud “DEVIL I REBUKE YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS.” It was sister Elva and it instilled in all of us a confidence that what we asked the Lord to do He would do! So, we all began praying and God raised our brother up.  We were all so thankful to be taught the power of prayer by this awesome woman of God.

Elva Howard definitely was, “…in all respects a MODEL OF GOOD WORKS, and in HER teaching showed integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned…” (Titus 2:7-8)

Notice: [We must understand that the bible says:] “…let our people learn to devote themselves to good works. !!!That’s for you: Stephanie, Ethan, Camden, Olivia, Aidan, Landon, Kinsley, Annika and Kaleigh

06-11-18 Loved One’s Devotion WHAT WILL IT BE LIKE…

My awesome, Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: “In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU.” (John 14:2)

Heaven will be a place of glorious life that will never end. Joy inexpressible, limitless peace, pure love, beauty beyond description—that’s what heaven is. Utmost of all will be the presence of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, with whom we will enjoy fellowship forever

“We will hunger no longer, or thirst anymore; or will the sun beat down on us, or any heat; for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be our shepherd and will guide us to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from our eyes.” (Rev. 7:16-17) Everything we will ever need will be ours, forever…

We have the Holy Spirit as the promise of future blessing. But we also groan inside ourselves as we look forward to the time when God will adopt us as full members of his family. THEN HE WILL GIVE US EVERYTHING HE HAS FOR US. HE WILL RAISE OUR BODIES AND GIVE GLORY TO THEM. (Rom. 8:22-23)

♫Won’t it be wonderful there
Having no burdens to bear
Joyously singing, with heartbells all ringing
Won’t it be wonderful there?
