Around The House~ A Day In Pictures

Today, I added two old doors to my porch, and I am so excited with the results!
 I used a wood door and a screen door.  
I hooked the screen door to the porch rafters and filled the top of the door with lights.  I also wrapped a rafter with burlap and lights.

 This is a nice spot for reading my Bible on a cool morning.

 It sounds very peaceful with the water fountain.

 I used a chalk painter to write on the windows.

 To protect the glass windows during storms, I plan on using a black exercise mat on the back side of the windows.  If I can't find a black one, I will paint one.  I will cut it to fit behind the six windows.  I believe this will add a lot of protection since an exercise mat is at least 1/2 inch thick and it is made from a rubbery material. Besides that, it will look great behind the chalk art.
 I am so ready for cooler weather here in South Georgia! 
Yes, I know it isn't Fall yet, but I'm past ready for it!

 Evening makes it that much more beautiful!

Here are a couple of pictures of the front yard. This is a nice relaxing place to sit.  I love the swing, but you can easily overlook it in this picture.  Every time I swing, Cuddles finds his comfy spot inside the birdbath.  I need to rake and add a few Fall touches to this area.  I will post those updates later. 

Now, on to the 
Chicken Barn!
 I have been enjoying my new flock of chickens!  They have  gotten so healthy in the last few weeks!
Just look at this plump little hen!

I made this video on the day I got my new chicks.
 As you can see, one of my little cream color hen's tail feathers have grown back.
Sweet little hen sitting on a nest full.  I can't wait to see the new chicks! 
Waiting for another hen to start sitting this nest any day now. 

Ahhhh, how I love the simple life.
Enjoy this video that I made using a few pictures from around the house.

Well, that's a day in pictures. I hope you enjoyed them.
As usual, our cross is on.  I hope it will be a blessing to someone riding by tonight.
I thank the Lord for all His blessings.  We never know what tomorrow will hold, but life is worth the living because
HE lives

Revelation Unfolding

Revelation Unfolding

And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? Revelation 6:12-17

First of all, I am not going to argue about a pre tribulation or post tribulation rapture of the church. However, I would like to share these Biblical truths about the Lord's return...
He is coming as a thief in the night.
We are to be vigilantly watching.
 As in the Days of Noah, they did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
They knew not, until the flood came.
These people sounded a bit too complacent didn't they?  They all thought Noah was an eccentric didn't they? Does that remind you of people today?

Now I would like to share just a few end time events prophesied in the Bible and then go into further detail with events happening now.

1. As in the days of Lot....Sodom and Gomorrah.  Anything like that happening today?
2.  Increase in Sin. Matthew 24:12
3.  Many shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. 1 Timothy 4:1
4. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.
5. Wars and rumors of wars
6. Ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies
7. Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
Here's the GREAT part...
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory!
There is no doubt that we are living in the last days.  Things are coming on the earth, and the powers of Heaven shall be shaken.
There is much in the news today.  However there is much hidden that only God's people are speaking out about.
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. Acts 2:17
God's people are warning about events that may coincide with the following events:
*The Four blood Moons
*The end of the Shmittah year
 (This Year of Jubilee is actually the 70th Jubilee. 70 is a very significant number in Bible prophecy, if you consider Jeremiah's 70 year prophecy and Daniel's 70 sevens prophecy.)
*The Day of Atonement
All beginning this September.

There is no denying that global events just keep getting stranger by the day…especially in the United States of America. What about Jade Helm? I believe there is more to this military exercise than meets the eye. 
Will martial law be imposed sometime in the near future? If so, what could be the events leading up to such an order.  First of all, there is an economic collapse several are predicting, and it is not something made up by those  some would label as religious nuts or extremist. Just Google search the words "impending financial collapse".  Furthermore,  is it a coincidence that many think this collapse could happen around the end of the Shemittah year or shortly thereafter?  If you study the facts, you will find the Shemittah seems to have affected the U.S. economy throughout much of the nation’s history. 
  Even if the economy doesn't collapse in September 2015, that doesn't mean that it couldn't happen some time in the near future.  An economic collapse would cause rioting, chaos, and killings on a much larger scale than what's already happening now.  So many people crave chaos and violence.  In an economic collapse, violence would escalate into an unruly and unimaginable chaos.  Therefore, martial law could be implemented.  I'm not saying that I think this will happen, but it could.

What's more, scientists are warning that a massive earthquake will happen in the Pacific Ocean.  This will wipe out everything west of Interstate 5. The Bible warns of distress of great perplexity, so my eyes are open.  As a born again child of God, I am not worried.  I'm looking up!
 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring.
Watch this video.
Here's a couple more questions.
 Why have Several Walmart stores closed across the US?
FEMA camps?
What is the connection between  Jade Helm and the movement of missiles?
Even Canada has its own "Jade Helm" called Project Maple Resolve/Maple Caravan to reinforce the Canadian army's readiness to aid America. 
 Also, several Target stores have closed across Canada.
Will these be used to house thousands displaced by economic collapse or natural disasters?
  Will there even be a 2016 election?
 If so, will the election results cause chaos and riots?
  Will martial law be implemented before the following January?
  Are these actions the building blocks of the new world order?  
On a related matter, have you heard about the New Universal Agenda?
 Next month the United Nations is going to launch a New Universal Agenda at a major conference that will be held from September 25th to September 27th in New York City.  Unlike Agenda 21, which primarily focused on the environment, the New Agenda is  a template for governing the entire planet. In addition to addressing climate change, it also sets a plan of action for areas such as economics, health, energy, education, agriculture, gender equality, and a whole host of other issues. This global initiative is being billed as a “new universal Agenda” for humanity. If you study your Bible, alarm bells should be going off in your head right about now!
And if that isn't enough, what about the terrorist training camps right here in America?
Watch this video.

Well, I'm no prophet, merely a watchman.  I do know one thing, Bible prophesy is unfolding more and more each day.  I'm not sure about any of these events, but none of this information is made up.  I can't predict or understand how the future will play out, but I do know the signs of the Lord's return are all around.  
The church is complacent.
  Since Hollywood has created movies portraying destruction and the end times, most dismiss God's warning signs as merely fantasy or hogwash. 
But listen people, 
...looking after those things
 which are coming on the earth:
 for the powers of heaven
 shall be shaken.
And then
 shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory! 

The stage is being set, but not for pretend or play.  
Revelation is unfolding!
Earth is about to be shaken!
Jesus is coming soon!
  In a blink,
 In the twinkling of any eye!
Are you ready?

I Will Never Allow Satan To Silence Me

As Christians, satan would love to silence our voice.  I've experienced first-hand one way satan works to keep us bound and gagged so we will back away from the things we are hoping to accomplish for the Lord.  He loves to constantly remind us of our past failures and shortcomings.  

For me, my sense of humor and big mouth are often at the  root of my "shortcomings".  How often do I blurt out something in jest before I realize exactly how it's going to sound? I have gotten carried away with laughing to the point where I laugh about things that I ought not to be laughing at.
  Afterwards, satan dauntingly whispers to me, "Now, go and write another post so that person who heard you laugh about that can read it and think you're a big hypocrite." 
The devil is a liar!
Satan is adept at exploiting and magnifying any situation that will further his plans to
 destroying our testimony,
 our hope,
 and our motivation.
He, the father of lies, wants to deceive us into believing our shortcomings warrant us as unworthy of using our gifts to minister to others.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not excusing any wrong doing.  There must be genuine repentance.
But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. Matthew 12:36
 Satan uses the weapons of intimidation and guilt to stop us in our tracks.
No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord. Isaiah 54:17
Wow! satan can not alter God's truths!
  What a marvelous heritage I have! 

What if Peter, after denying he even knew Jesus three times, let his past failure and guilt stop him from continuing on?

I thank God for His mercy and patience.  With the Lord's help, I am desperately seeking holiness.
Therefore, I will continue to write what I feel God places on my heart.  I humbly appreciate the comments I have received from so many of my readers.  It feels great to be a help or to hear that someone received a blessing through one of my posts. 

“Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.”psalm 96:3

This is the insight I received after feeling a Spiritual blockage of some sort.  The enemy was quick to throw my shortcomings up in my face to silence me. I couldn't write, I wasn't in my Bible as I should have been, and I wasn't praying like I ought to.  All this because satan knew exactly when to throw a wrench in between the millstones.  I didn't recognize his attack at first.  Evidently, I had gotten to a place where I thought it was safe to remove some of my spiritual armor and plop down for a rest. 
As I was thinking on these things, the Lord quickly revealed to me that this is dangerous ground.  It was not a safe time to rest, and it especially wasn't the time to loosen spiritual armor desperately needed for spiritual warfare.  
The Lord reminded me of  how Joshua's army was defeated at Ai.   Just a few days before the battle at Ai, Joshua was the triumphant conqueror, and the mighty city of Jericho lay in ruins.  However, his army was defeated and humiliated at Ai.  Why? 
First of all, they did not seek God that day. 
As Joshua, I can not afford to get lax in my prayer life.  As I said, God was bringing all this to mind.  I love how He guides and teaches me when I ask Him to show me whats wrong.  There is a spiritual war going on today and the battles are heated like never before.  I have to daily seek the Lord for direction.  I must be in a direct line of communication with Him throughout the day to obtain strategic battle plans.
I can afford to rest on this battlefield. 
Second, there was sin in the camp. Israel had sinned and God would not bless them until the sin was dealt with. Here's where the genuine repentance I mentioned above comes in.  None of us are perfect.  That doesn't mean it's okay to continually practice sin without remorse, but we all have sinned.  Neither do we try to hide our sin.  No matter how "small" we think a sin is, such as what I mentioned above about idle words, jesting, and laughing inappropriately, all sin causes separation from God.  The battle strategy here is to be filled with the Spirit and fully clothed in our spiritual armor.  The Spirit will guide us to all understanding.  Therefore, our hearts will be pricked to repentance when we sin. The Spirit living within us leads us into holiness. 
We should all desire this beauty of holiness.
Satan wants to discourage us, silence us, and ultimately defeat us.  He wants to get us to a place where we let our guard down. He wants us to doubt who we are in Christ. He wants to magnify our shortcomings in our mind until they become huge obstacles of unworthiness.  He wants us to feel the burden of sin, the guilt, and the shame.
He wants us to feel as if we are still clothed in filthy garments instead of robes of righteousness.   
The devil is a liar!
I may not be perfect, but I am an heir to Royalty!
I may not be perfect, but I am clothed in Righteousness!
I may not be perfect, but the Spirit of the one true God lives inside of me!
I may not be perfect, but my soul shall make her boast in the Lord!
I may not be perfect, but God upholds me with the right hand of His righteousness!
I may not be perfect, but God is faithful!
I may not be perfect, but I can mount up with wings as eagles. 
I may not be perfect, but God gave Himself for me.
I may not be perfect, but nothing is able to separate me from the love of God.
I may not be perfect, but His grace is sufficient.
I may not be perfect, but He has begun a good work in me.
I may not be perfect, but I am fearfully and wonderfully made!
I may not be perfect, but I am created in Christ Jesus for good works!
I may not be perfect, but I have eternal life!
I may not be perfect, but He has gone to prepare a place for me!
I may not be perfect, but my cup overflows!
I may not be perfect, but victory is mine!
I may not be perfect, but the Lord fights for me!
I may not be perfect, but God girds me with strength and makes my way blameless!
I may not be perfect, but the Lord joys over me with singing.
I may not be perfect, but I will NEVER allow satan to silence me from speaking about my Lord!
His word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot!
