Repentance or Hiding at the Altar


Joab fled from Solomon's judgement to the altar of the Lord but ... one cannot hide at the altar!
Only true repentance will be acceptable at God's mercy seat! Run to the Lord in honesty and sincerity to find forgiveness.
Then no matter if you live or die ~ you will have eternal life through Christ.
Joab was not repentant, he only wanted to use the altar to prevent the King from having him killed. It did not work.
Today also, false pretense or lip service will not work.

Don't Judge?


There is a difference between judging and condemnation.

Stop telling folks that they can't judge you. It is not scriptural.

John 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.


Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.


What the scripture is telling us is that when you judge another, KNOW that you will be judged with the same measure you dish it out.

 God’s Word tells us to know those that labor among us.

When you go to a store, a grocery store, a furniture store, any store; do you just pick up whatever you came to get, or do you check it out? Comparing prices, quality, even quantity available. Does it measure up to a specific standard that you are looking for?

The same applies in the Kingdom of God, what are you working toward. What is your focus? What are you looking for?

The same goes for who you hang around with, socialize with, etc. My Mom used to tell me that birds of a feather flock together. I usually got mad at her because I didn’t consider myself “like them” just because I was out with them. Yet, as long as I kept hanging out with them I ended up doing just what they did. I smoked pot because they did. I did not get a “buzz” I got hungry, then got sick. It did not appeal to me at all.

So don’t get upset when you are “judged” by who you surround yourself with. There are Godly friends/people that God will place in your life. Be like them, learn from them. Birds of a feather….flock together. If you want to be judged righteous, be righteous in God’s sight. Your own way will get you into a heap of trouble.

Understand that no matter how you try to hide. Someone is always watching, always judging you. How are you presenting to them? What is your life showing/proving to them? Are you a standard that others will want to follow? Is Christ evident in your life?

Somebody is watching, it may be your peers or your children or perhaps your sibling's children, or it could be your neighbor…. Keep focused on God not on who is watching or what they are thinking.

As I was growing up, I was always thinking the worst. Assuming the other person thought terrible thoughts of me. They don’t like me, on and on it went. I was condemning myself. Eventually, I found out that they thought no such thing about me. They did like me; I was just so anti-social that they did not know how to talk to me. I was so stuck in my own thoughts that I was unapproachable to others. If anyone spoke to me, I would duck my head, turn a bright red, and even tears in my eyes wanting to crawl in a hole and hide. All because of what I thought that they thought of me.

Now I must say abuse played a major role in that aspect of my life. That is another story all together. My point is that often we cause a rift between oneself and others by our own stinking thinking.

Don’t be afraid to be judged, just know that God will correct you, help you correct yourself too if necessary. Let others see how merciful God is when we humble ourselves to His will and way. Let them see the changes God makes in your life when we will let Him.

Now, don’t get in a hurry to make them/others know you… let God show them the real you. Um-hmmm. Just be yourself with God as your guide.

When God is truly in your heart, in spite of faults and failures, He will shine through! Don't condemn, that is God's job one day. Just judge righteously, picking the "fruit" that you want, so therefore you will be judged righteously.

Wars and Rumours of Wars - in the End Time

  Mark 13:7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.

Fear not, God will take care of His people. 

No weapon formed against you shall prosper!!!!! Do not admit fear as a visitor, even. Because it will try to take up residence! 

God is not the author of fear. He will give you peace, His peace that surpasses ALL understanding. Remain calm in the midst of every storm. Just trust in Him in every situation.  He will supply all of your needs.

We must believe and trust as Job did. Though God slay me YET I'll trust Him!

What is it to you? Follow me...

 Romans 9:15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.

 16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

John 21:20 Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?

 21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?

 22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.

Too many are more concerned about what someone else is doing rather than securing their soul and works with God!

Be diligent ...

2Pe 3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

 15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

 17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

 18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Common things

1Corinthians 10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

 2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;

 3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;

 4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

 5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.

 6  Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

 7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

 8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

 9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

 10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

 12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

God said "Think it not strange...." speaking of the trials, temptations and tribulations that come our way. We may not understand it or the purpose for it but He knows our end from our beginning! Trust Him.

We may not go through the exact same things, yet, each of us face our daily obstacles - barriers even. Don't think you are the only one. Your trial may seem harder than others to you and theirs seems harder than yours to them. We ALL face the fire and what seems unbearable to you can and will make you stronger, wiser, and more powerful than you were before it happened. 

That is why it is called FAITH - trusting and believing no matter what the circumstance or what it looks like. GOD WILL DO IT! Again and again when you/I believe!

Things that are common to man. One of the first and most prominent is death. We tend to forget that death will visit us all. This earthly body will not go to our eternal destination. Death comes at all ages. As long as we know our hearts and minds are righteous before God we have no fear. When God takes us/loved one it may be sad for a time but, remember where we/they (loved ones young and old) are going o live for eternity!

Many things common to man are devastating to the carnal mind. Be prepared, be ready as best you can for the things common to man. When your heart is right with God you have the ability to see beyond the devastation, see beyond the carnal mindset. Looking to the purpose of the LORD. 

Romans 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
