Are you Afraid of Anything?

I think we are all afraid to a certain extent. We are afraid that we will hurt others or we are afraid they will hurt us. We are afraid of flying, riding a bus, riding a train, running in a marathon, or being in a large crowd of people.

The Muslim Terrorists want us dead. There are Muslims that do not believe in jihad, but I am beginning to think that most of the ones in the Middle East do believe in jihad. I don't care who or what you believe in, hurting each other is wrong. In this war, the Muslims are the Bullies. We are the Good Guys. Of course, from the other side you could say the Muslims are the Good Guys and we are the bullies. What good does that do?

"It is assumed that the Koran is God's infallible word, and teaching contrary to the Koran is false. But, when the Christian tells the Muslim that Jesus is indeed the Son of God and one with God, that he did truly die on the Cross, was buried and rose again, that he did not foretell the coming of Mohammad, but warned his followers against false prophets, and that it is He who will raise the dead to life and sit as Judge of all men. The Muslim is then forced to believe all the Christian doctrine. which is contrary to the Koran, or to reject the Koran and Muhammad and the whole system of Islam and put his trust in Christ alone. Knowing how difficult it is to reject convictions held since childhood, it is not surprising  that Muslims almost always choose the former alternative." *

As Christians, we have a burning desire to for all those who do not believe in the love of Christ, a love that is poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, a love that will create a passionate longing for Muslims to know and love Christ crucified and risen from the dead.

"Now to him by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, to Him be the Glory in the church and in Jesus Christ to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen" [Eph. 3:20-21]

This may not sound too Christian, but I am not so sure that we should be worrying about where they will be in the next life. We know they will not be in Heaven with us, but should we care so much. I think that if women were in charge, we would be able to settle all this mess. We would not want to send our sons off to war, whether it is an American or a Muslim. We would not want our sons to commit suicide to kill others. We would not want our sons to leave their families undefended to go to other countries to fight for people who do not even want us there. Why does this country keep throwing money and men at this problem? No one seems to appreciate that we have just about bankrupted our country giving away our hard earned taxes to them.

Our older people are in dire straits. Most cannot afford the medications they need and some cannot even afford food. That is how wonderful our Social Security System has become. The government seems to take from the system, but does not want to put the money back, or even give cost of living increases while they are giving away our tax money to strangers overseas.

If it were not for the Christian Churches in the United States, there are a lot of people who would starve to death. The Christian Churches are always sending missionaries overseas to help out those in need. Of course, our government sends plenty of money but the leaders seem to take it all and do not improve their people's plight. Somehow this all seems a little one-sided to me.

Pretty Terrifying




Death ;
is certain but the Bible speaks about untimely death!

Make a ;
personal reflection about this.......

Very ;
interesting, read until the end......

It is ;
written in the Bible (Galatians 6:7):

'Be not deceived; God is not mocked:

for whatsoever a man sow,

that shall he also reap...

Here are some men and women

who mocked God ;

John Lennon ;


Some years before, during his interview with
an American Magazine, he said:

'Christianity will end, it will disappear.
I do not have to argue about ;
that... ;
I am certain.
Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple, ;
today we are more famous than Him' (1966).

Lennon, after ;
saying that the Beatles were more famous than Jesus Christ, ;
was shot six times.

Tancredo Neves

(President of Brazil ):

During ;
the Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes ;
from his party, not even God would remove him from ;

Sure he got the votes, ;
but he got sick a day before being made President, ;
then he died.

Cazuza ;

(Bi-sexual Brazilian ;
composer, singer and poet):

During a show in Canecio ( Rio de Janeiro ),
while smoking his cigarette, ;
he puffed out some smoke into the air ;
and said: 'God, that's for you.'

He died at ;
the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER in a horrible manner.

The man who built the Titanic

After the construction of Titanic, ;
a reporter asked him how safe the ;
Titanic would be.

With an ironic tone he said:
'Not even God can sink it'

The result:
I think you all know what happened to the Titanic

Marilyn Monroe ;


She was visited by Billy Graham ;
during a presentation of a show.

He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her.

After hearing what the Preacher had to say,
she said:
'I don't need your Jesus'.

A week later, ;
she was found dead in her apartment

Bon Scott


The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. ;
On one of his 1979 songs he sang:

'Don't stop me; ;
I'm going down all the way, ;
down the highway to hell'.

On the 19th of February 1980, ;
Bon Scott was found dead, ;
he had been choked by his own vomit.

(IN 2005)

In Campinas , Brazil , a group of friends, drunk,
went to pick up a friend......

The mother accompanied her to the car ;
and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends ;
and she said to the daughter holding her hand, ;
who was already seated in the car:

'My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You.'

She responded: ;
'Only If He (God) travels In the trunk, ;
cause inside here.....
It's already full.'

Hours later, ;
news came by that they had been involved in a fatal accident, ;
everyone had died,

the car could ;
not be recognized what type of car it had been, ;
but surprisingly, the trunk was intact.

The police ;
said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact. ;
To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs, ;
none was broken

Christine Hewitt ;

(Jamaican Journalist and entertainer) ;

said the Bible (Word of God) was the worst book
ever written.

In June 2006 ;
she was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle.

Many more ;
important people have forgotten that there is no other name ;
that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus.

Many have died, ;
but only Jesus died and rose again, ;
and he is still alive.


PS: ;

If it was a ;
joke, you would have sent it to everyone. ;

So are you going to have courage to send this?.

I have done my part, Jesus said

'If you are embarrassed about me,

I will also be embarrassed
about you before my father.'

You ;
are my 8 in 8 seconds. ;
I am not breaking this. ;
No way!

Bishop T.D. Jakes '8 Second Prayer.' ;
Just repeat this prayer and see how God moves!!

'Lord, ;
I love you and I need you, ;
come into my heart, and bless me, ;
my family, my home, and my friends, ;
in Jesus' name. ;

Pass ;
this message to 8 people ;
You will receive a miracle tomorrow. ;
I Hope that you don't ignore and ;

let God bless you

Woman of God & The Jesus Prayer

Dear Woman of God,

Be still for a while and praise God for His favor, His grace and His awesomeness. God is able to do the impossible and is always near. He loves us unconditionally. Together, let's get our lady friends to praise Him with one voice in this next year and ask for God to bless us all. Let's all choose one friend each day and say this prayer during this year:

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, This is my friend whom I love and this is my prayer for her. Help her live her life to the fullest. Please cause her to excel above her expectations. Help her to shine in the darkest places where it is impossible to love. Protect her at all times, lift her up when she needs You the most, and let her know when she walks with You, she will always be safe.


Get going girl!! Do not ask the Lord to guide your footsteps if you are not willing to move your feet. 

The Jesus Prayer

"O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner."
“The invocation of the holy name of Jesus is the simplest way of praying always…. This prayer is possible ‘at all times’ because it is not one occupation among others but the only occupation: that of loving God, which animates and transfigures every action in Christ Jesus” 
"Into this name the Christian can pour all of his faith,  with nothing whatsoever left over, for to be a Christian is to rest all of your faith on Christ, with nothing left over."

The Jesus Prayer

Jesus Christ
What do Christians use if we want to meditate? We talk to God. We do not call it meditation, but prayer.  I found something quite by mistake. It is "The Jesus Prayer". Actually, it comes from the Greek Orthodox part of Christianity. I love it.

"The Jesus Prayer is not recited as a Mantra, but as a prayer to the Person of Christ. 

The Jesus Prayer. - 'Lord Jesus Christ Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.'

Power Of The Jesus Prayer Is In The Name Of Our Lord
The prayer begins with the name of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ. In the book of Acts we are told, “There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12) The power in the prayer comes from our proclaiming the Lord’s name. 

In its simple form we confess our faith in Jesus Christ as our God and Lord. Saint Theophan the Recluse emphasizes the importance of this prayer when he says, “Only with the help of this prayer can the necessary order of the soul be firmly maintained…” (Art of Prayer, p 92) 

Here he powerfully says that this particular prayer is essential if we are to put our soul in charge, being fully directed at God. Saint Ignatius Brianchaninov6 says, “By the power of the name of Jesus the mind is freed from doubt, indecision and hesitation, the will is strengthened and correctness is given to zeal and other properties of the soul.” (On the Prayer of Jesus. p 25) 

He is saying that as we engage in this prayer the mind is freed from its confusion caused by the attack of numerous thoughts that distract us from God. As the mind is tamed though our repeated repetition of this prayer, the mind is brought under control through God’s grace so that we can use our rational faculties to direct our bodies in an appropriate way allowing us to act in a manner that is consistent with the teaching of Jesus.

Clicking on the Jesus Prayer will take you to the website where it is explained in detail. I hope that you receive the blessing that I received from this.
