Scared

So while shopping in Home Depot tonight in Baltimore four guys came into the store and acting like they were shooting people off. I was one of them. They had white full body suits on only showing a little of their face with dark sunglasses. One guy turned to me and acted like he was killing me. The cops were called and they left the store. I’m a little bit shaken after everything that has gone on in the world and to actually have something like that happen to you is really weird. Say a prayer for me and all those others that were at the Home Depot store who experience the same thing that I did and pray that the Lord catches these four guys

In the road with the Lord.

Please pray for five young men. I spoke to them about accepting Christ as their Lord. One boy said that he received Christ four years ago and another said he loves God with all his heart. The others just listened. Thank you all for praying for those I encounter. There is such a great need. Also pray for a man named —- because he is doing, selling drugs and lives outside. I would like to see his life changed by Christ. Thanks again.

God’s word.

Psalms 138:2 reminds us that God’s word is the gold standard for all our actions and thoughts.

“I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth:  for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.” Psalms 138:2

Don’t let anyone turn you away from the power of God’s word, even if they are in the church.  Let keep praying for each other!

 

Ps:  I over heard a woman teaching a child about Jesus and I thought what a great honor she has.  The things she said was good and it pleased me to see someone teaching a young person about God.  But then I heard her say that there are many ways to God.  Wow, I was crushed.  May God have mercy on us.

John 14:6, “Jesus answered, ” I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Let your words be few.

Psalms 50: 16-17 “But God says to the wicked: “What right do you have to recite my statutes and to take my covenant on your lips? You hate instruction and fling my words behind you.”

Satan lied to us and we took the yoke upon ourselves of hating God. That is what Satan has to offer us. God offers life!  Thank God for the cross.

Isaiah 50

This chapter of Isaiah has striking words from God. He did not sell us off or put us away. We did! By thinking that sin is good and fun and by doing evil, we have sold ourselves. God says to whom of my creditors did I sell you? Why was no one there when I came? Why was there no one to answer when I called? Is my arm too weak to redeem? Or do I have no power to rescue? God called to help, but we did not answer.  We were sold because of our sin.  But God said, “I gave my back to those who beat me and my cheeks to those who tore out my beard.  I did not hide my face from scoring and spitting.”  God redeemed us from our sin on the cross.  And even in the Old Testament he foretold of his great salvation towards us. Let’s not sell ourselves to sin anymore,  but instead turn to God who will save us!  Praise God!

The Savanna Principle

Satoshi Kanazawa in his book, “The Intelligence Paradox” reviews what he calls the Savanna Principle.  He says it can also be called the evolutionary legacy hypothesis or the mismatch hypothesis.  He says that our brain doesn’t know that what we are watching is not real.  We may know that the people on tv are not real, but our brain feels like they are our real friends.  He goes on to say that is why we may cry at a sad movie.  Consciously we know it isn’t real, but does our brain know this?  Be careful what you watch and put into your mind!!  We also don’t want to get used to evil so that when the time comes to deny evil it, we think it is ok.  But besides this the savanna principle shows that pornography and other images/pictures can be dangerous.  Serve God.  Let’s pray for each other to keep our eyes on Jesus!
