Surely Yahweh is in this place


Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.He came to a certain place, and stayed there all night, because the sun had set. He took one of the stones of the place, and put it under his head, and lay down in that place to sleep.He dreamed. Behold, a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven. Behold, the angels of God ascending and descending on it.Behold, Yahweh stood above it, and said, “I am Yahweh, the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac. The land whereon you lie, to you will I give it, and to your seed.Your seed will be as the dust of the earth, and you will spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south. In you and in your seed will all the families of the earth be blessed.Behold, I am with you, and will keep you, wherever you go, and will bring you again into this land. For I will not leave you, until I have done that which I have spoken of to you.” Jacob awakened out of his sleep, and he said, “Surely Yahweh is in this place, and I didn’t know it.”He was afraid, and said, “How dreadful is this place! This is none other than God’s house, and this is the gate of heaven.”Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put under his head, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil on the top of it.He called the name of that place Bethel, but the name of the city was Luz at the first.Jacob vowed a vow, saying, “If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and clothing to put on,so that I come again to my father’s house in peace, and Yahweh will be my God,then this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, will be God’s house. Of all that you will give me I will surely give the tenth to you.”

Missing It

Sometimes, we find ourselves in a place and a time of our lives missing It. We miss It, because our focus is being shifted constantly . We are well aware that our Master should be our focal point, but yet we still miss It from time to time. What we do in our daily operations, is to focus on the things that are of lesser importance, we focus on our circumstances; our environment, our religion; everything and we end up thus missing the BIGGER PICTURE. When looking at things through the eyes of God, we will see things differently, we will see the things God wants us to see; the bible declares that “…we have the mind of Christ.”(1Cor 2v 16), again it says that we should “…seek the things from above”(Col 3 v 1), another verse speaks of the eye being the light of the body (Luk 1 1 v 34). Peter was able to walk on the water when he focused on Jesus, but when He looked away, he missed It. (Matt 14 v 28) – Peter answered him and said, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the waters.” He said, “Come!” Peter went down from the boat, and walked on the waters to come to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was strong, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”

Don’t lose your vision

How many times do we as believers dwell off the road that God have walked for us, dwell off the road that we chose, we tend to go astray too easily, without even knowing, we sometimes go off the straight and narrow. When we ought to focus on Him, when we ought to focus on being like Him, doing the things He did, walking the road He did, we sometimes tend to worry, or we would rather focus on the problems that we are experiencing. Look to Jesus, focus on the Lord, don’t look to man for your answers, when Peter asked Jesus to walk on water, He was able to do so, but the moment he took his eyes off the Lord, he began to sink – we need to come to a place where we can sincerely say “Surely Yahweh is in this place”

Who is Jesus?

Have you heard about the man called Jesus yet, do you know who He is? Have you met this man yet, do you know what He can do for you? Why was He born, what is His role in life?

Do you need answers to the above questions, then you have to read further, and you will learn more about Jesus.

Let’s look at a brief description of Him. In the beginning when God created mankind, God created them to be in perfect fellowship with Him. Please note that God created them blameless, without fault, and without sin, God gave only one commandment to them; not to eat of the fruit of the tree that’s in the middle of the garden. This was not the case though.

The first man and woman were easily misled by the enemy and fell into his trap of wickedness, Immediately when they went against God’s will, they opened a door for the enemy.
The devil probably thought that he was victorious, because I get the idea that he wants to battle the Lord and His good works in every aspect of it and every opportunity he gets, he wants to be a thread.

Some hundred years after the initial sin, the laws were introduced to lead us, to guide us from not doing sin, those living in that time had to abide by the law (burnt offers, sacrifices, etc.), but the law could not take away the sin. The Bible says that through one man sin came into this world,
but it also says that by the Blood of Jesus Christ we are freed by the curse of the law.

Jesus came in order for us to have a way back to God; Jesus came so that we may have life and have it in abundance. Jesus died to be the ultimate sacrifice; He paid the price that no other man could do. Jesus, the Christ died so that we could have perfect fellowship with God like in the beginning when God created Adam and Eve. This fellowship that God had with Adam and Eve were broken by them failing to be obedient to God’s commandment and brought sin into this life.

Through sin that came into existence came death, the book of Romans mentions it, “the wages of sin is death”, but through Christ Jesus, came everlasting life.

What is sin / does sin still exist?

Ever heard the phrase; “we are born into a sinful world”? The Bible declares that all have sinned and fall sort of the glory of God, because of our sinful nature, we have to convert ourselves everyday. This merely means that we ought to pray to our God daily acknowledging that we have sinned and asking for forgiveness in Jesus.

That still doesn’t answer the question; sin is fleshly. Whatever is done out of lack of control due to the flesh, is a sin. Sin goes directly against the will of God, sin and love cannot go hand in hand, it goes directly against each other. When someone sin, he/she feels as if he/she is separated from God, sin brings this feeling of separation. God wants us to be close to Him, but the devil hates the closeness, therefore he wants us to continually live in sin, live sinfully – this will bring the separation or the feeling of separation that one feels when he partakes in sin.

How do we get rid of sin?

Live in the spirit! (Galatians 5: 19-21) Now the works of the flesh are obvious, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lustfulness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, strife, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, divisions, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these; of which I forewarn you, even as I did forewarn you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
As long as a person live by the flesh, in other words, as long as you are still practicing any of the above, it is clear that sin still do still exist and is active in one’s life. I believe that sin still exists in the world today, because Jesus says in the book of John that the Holy Spirit will convict the world of sin (chapter 16:8)
(Romans 8: 8 – 14) Those who are in the flesh can’t please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if it is so that the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if any man doesn’t have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His`. If Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the spirit is alive because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. So then, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if you live after the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God.
Due to the sin that were brought into existence, we all were doomed to die and spent eternity in a place called hell, but God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son (Jesus Christ) so that whosever believe in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.
What can you do so that sin does not reign in your life?

Shall we then continue to live in sin, is the question that Paul asked the Romans. We can put away sin by living by the will of the almighty God and Saviour Jesus who is also known as Christ.

The Word of God teaches that we shall confess with our mouth that we are sinners, acknowledge that we need Jesus in our lives; we will be free from the curse of sin. After accepting Jesus into our lives, we shall do the will of the Father in heaven. Doing the will of the Father in heaven also includes spending lots of time, reading and studying the bible, praying regularly, hence building up the relationship, and being in perfect fellowship with God almighty.
If you want to be in perfect fellowship with God, and you want the spirit of God to be active in you, you have to admit with your mouth that you are a sinner and ask the Lord to forgive you. If this is what you really want to do, and you want to live for the Lord, please say the following prayer.

Prayer of Salvation
Dear heavenly Father, I come before You today, acknowledging that I am a sinner, I have done much wrong. Lord I cannot live my life the way I want to live it anymore; I need you in my life to guide me to and through the right path. I accept and acknowledge that Jesus died for my sins, and rose again, I acknowledge that He is the Son of God, that He is God. Please wash me with Your blood; please forgive me of all my sins, please come live inside of me Lord. All this I ask in Jesus` name. Amen.

Welcome my friend
If you decided to pray and mean the prayer above, You should know that just as the father of the prodigal son prepared a feast for his son returning home, the Father in heaven, Our Father in heaven is preparing a meal, a feast for your return back to Him. Friend, you don’t have to take my word for that, go look it up in Revelation 3. God is so happy for the very important decision you made in your life. You could not have made any better decision, now you have to complete the journey, which have just begun.

Continue with much prayer and reading of His Holy Word, seek a bible believing prayer group, and focus on the Word of God.

When Will It End?


Forty Knots An Hour,
Blowing Across The Mind Of The Innocent Child,
She Became The Victim Of What Is Called The World,
She Wasn’t Even Given A Chance To Live Her Life As We Did Then,
Life Is Being Lived So Fast, You Know It Happened, Just Not When,
I Hate The Idea That Introduced This Thing
Seem So Harmless, But It Has A Sting
Poor Young Children, Victims Of This Villain
This Had Changed The Way Some Talk
And Even The Way Some Walk
It Used To Be With Heads Up High
Now Not Even Hello, Good Bye
Sleepless Nights,Constant Fights
Marriages Crumbles, Families Stumble,
When Will It End, Is A Thing I Wonder?
How Will We Calm This Storm
Stop Right Now And Let All Be Warned
Delete The Icon, And Be Safe From Morons

SHATTERED DREAM


Her Heart Beats Faster As She Hear The Gate Screaming,
She Was Just Seconds Away From Dreaming,
He’s Drunk Again’ She Could Sense,
The Vibe Rapidly Progressed To Being So Tense,
Not As Drunk As Yesterday, But More Severe,
He Crushed Mom To More Pain And Fear,
With Historical Blue Marks Now Becoming Black,
She Pray That God Forgive Him And Bring Her Daddy Back,
Happiness Is What She Long For,
A Happy Family And Maybe A Bit More.
As She Was Shouting And Screaming And Weeping,
Her Mom Woke Her Up From Her Sleeping And The Heavy Breathing
She Was Delighted To Know, It Was A Shattered Dream
Daddy Came Closer, Assured Her It’s Better Than It Seemed.
