Psalm 27: 1-14 (NLT)
A psalm of David
.

1
The Lord is my light and my salvation—
so why should I be afraid?
The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger,
so why should I tremble?


2
When evil people come to devour me,
when my enemies and foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall
.



3
Though a mighty army surrounds me,
my heart will not be afraid.
Even if I am attacked,
I will remain confident


4
The one thing I ask of the Lord—
the thing I seek most—
is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
delighting in the Lord’s perfections
and meditating in his Temple


5
For he will conceal me there when troubles come;
he will hide me in his sanctuary.
He will place me out of reach on a high rock.


6
Then I will hold my head high
above my enemies who surround me.
At his sanctuary I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy,
singing and praising the Lord with music
.


7
Hear me as I pray, O Lord.
Be merciful and answer me!


8
My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.”
And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.”


9
Do not turn your back on me.
Do not reject your servant in anger.
You have always been my helper.
Don’t leave me now; don’t abandon me,
O God of my salvation
!

10
Even if my father and mother abandon me,
the Lord will hold me close
.

11
Teach me how to live, O Lord.
Lead me along the right path,
for my enemies are waiting for me
.


12
Do not let me fall into their hands.
For they accuse me of things I’ve never done;
with every breath they threaten me with violence.


13
Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness
while I am here in the land of the living
.


14
Wait patiently for the Lord.
Be brave and courageous.
Yes, wait patiently for the Lord
.


Good morning

Eviana:
Hi to all,
I just wanted to share "2" more videos that may answer the questions of those here searching for the truth.
There is a ton of information out that concerning last day events to usher in Jesus' second coming.
Please be sincerely prayerful, asking the Holy Spirit to guide you into all truth..regardless of how it may look.
The Lord would not have you confused, surprised, misled or ignorant about His love for you...including all things that must prophetically occur before He returns.
Please forgive me for adding just 1 more video.
I know that the video I add is of extreme importance.
So that will bring my total of videos posted here to "4" instead of my initial "3". I modified my initial statement also.

Again, it is my sincere hope that you will somehow be able to view the "20" episode Revelation series....and be tremendously blessed/encouraged with what the Lord has to say concerning His soon coming.

Episode 9
"Bewitching Spirits"

Episode 15
"Marked for Death"

Psalm 36: 1-12 (NLT)
For the choir director: A psalm of David, the servant of the Lord.


1
Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts.
They have no fear of God at all


2
In their blind conceit,
they cannot see how wicked they really are
.


3
Everything they say is crooked and deceitful.
They refuse to act wisely or do good.[/b
]

4
They lie awake at night, hatching sinful plots.
Their actions are never good.
They make no attempt to turn from evil.


5
Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds


6
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
your justice like the ocean depths.
You care for people and animals alike, O Lord.


7
How precious is your unfailing love, O God!
All humanity finds shelter
in the shadow of your wings.


8
You feed them from the abundance of your own house,
letting them drink from your river of delights.


9
For you are the fountain of life,
the light by which we see
.

10
Pour out your unfailing love on those who love you;
give justice to those with honest hearts.


11
Don’t let the proud trample me
or the wicked push me around.


12
Look! Those who do evil have fallen!
They are thrown down, never to rise again

For the choir director: A psalm of David

1
O God, listen to my complaint.
Protect my life from my enemies’ threats


2
Hide me from the plots of this evil mob,
from this gang of wrongdoers.


3
They sharpen their tongues like swords
and aim their bitter words like arrows[/color].

4
They shoot from ambush at the innocent,
attacking suddenly and fearlessly.


[b]5
They encourage each other to do evil
and plan how to set their traps in secret.
“Who will ever notice?” they ask.


6
As they plot their crimes, they say,
“We have devised the perfect plan!”
Yes, the human heart and mind are cunning


7
But God himself will shoot them with his arrows,
suddenly striking them down.

8
Their own tongues will ruin them,
and all who see them will shake their heads in scorn.


9
Then everyone will be afraid;
they will proclaim the mighty acts of God
and realize all the amazing things he does
.

The godly will rejoice in the Lord
and find shelter in him.

will praise him

Religion / Re: Courage From Their Cowardice by Eviana(f): 2:11pm On Oct 05
Practical application time.....let me add a personal "object lesson" if I may.

While I can never profess to be perfect or to have always presented myself in the most reserved and godly way, nor am I Jesus, I do know & believe the truth of God's Word....who Christ is. I see why Christ did what he did in regards to the disciples and can relate in a way.
Two weeks ago, another spiritual attack invaded my space here on N.L.

I did something unusual during the attack: started following "8" monikers.
Monikers who (all except "1", I'd either had contributed in a positive manner in some form whether through conversation with, commented/encouraged, "liked" etc., at some point in time during my almost 5 years of N.L. membership.
One of them disagrees with me strongly on a very controversial point of doctrine...yet I still engaged him He was even helpful in providing info that was informative one time.
Out of the "8", "1" of the monikers was consistently attacking me out of the blue, and "2" I just immediately unfollowed (for nothing they had done) after about 1 or 2 days. Then I unfollowed "1" whom had been battling me about a day or 2 after the first 2 un- follows. I then unfollowed 2 more after about 3-4 days. Then I was left with the last 3. I did not want to unfollow them, but when I saw that the last 3 people I was following, started getting quadruple views (as I did also), I knew things were being manipulated behind the scenes. They were either being told to stay away from me or were getting unnecessary targets because of me.

Although I have never talked to any of the people (posting devotionals or Op-Ed pieces), that I briefly chose to follow, clearly they were put in a place of uneasiness, fear and visual backlash. So, I eventually "unfollowed" the last 3. I had originally said that I would not unfollow those whose writimgs had encouraged me, but I did eventually do so. They were put at risk-- and I didn't want that at all.

I originally followed them (2 weeks ago), not for "follows back", but because I needed to read encouraging posts...while battling the accuser of the brethren spirit continually waged against me. I wanted to be able to log in and immediately see what encouragement would be there. It was easier than scrolling for their names. However, I could not read the posts because someone took away the posts (that I followed) so that I could not see them once I logged in. I could not read "followed posts" because it was taken away as an option for me. I ended up having to search for those posts by those few I was following as usual-- my original method. I still commented on their posts...
I've been called paranoid and crazy....but this was reality folks.

So to me however, all of that actvity (behind the scenes) was a warning that innocent people would be unnecessarily attacked because of me--the real target. Same thing with my real family in real life.

Satan operates that way.
He goes to manipulate, harrass, frighten, threaten harm, do actual harm--through theft, intimidate or destroy the intended target's reputation in order to build up support for himself,  cause divisions amongst fellow brethren, make Christians doubt one another and Christ

The only reason I unfollowed the monikers was to try and protect the innocent. To those specific monikers, that were especially posting devotionals daily, I will still encourage-- but from a distance...give some "likes" occasionally too.

Pray about the truth...concerning who I am if in *doubt. If I have given you no reason to doubt me, then understand the spiritual warfare going on. If the devil isn't messing with you that profess Christ hardcore, then maybe you just aren't enough of a threat to his kingdom---just some food for thought.
I may, however differ with other fellow believers in some points of doctrine, but there should be no war between that know Christ as Lord and Savior. True and sincere believers should prayerfully be able to discern when the enemy is in the midst...and his agenda.

I know that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal....but spiritual. This is a battle against the kingdom of darkness and can only be fought through Christ Jesus' power and strength.
I only hope that if we as followers of Christ and His Word, have situations that like the disciples' circumstances of going from cowardice in a crisis situation to courage that even lead to a martyr's death for some, may be our experience for the gospel.

Let us choose Godly courage in any circumstance rather than ungodly cowardice.
Be encouraged...
Religion / Re: Courage From Their Cowardice by Eviana(f): 2:05pm On Oct 05
I would like to look at John 18: 1-8 (KJV)

1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.

2 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.

3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons.

4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?

5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.

6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.

7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of Nazareth.

8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way.



The infamous scene in which the Lord Jesus Christ had been betrayed by Judas and was captured by the Roman army. The moment of which Jesus--both fully human and fully God-- pleaded for the cup (if possible) to be taken away from Him, but accepted God the Father's will for Him. He could have chosen to not accept God the Father's will.
He knew He would be put to death.
However, this was the ultimate act of love for a sin-sick, dying, hopeless world.
There was no other way to allow salvation for those who desired it.
He had to die on the Cross of Calvary.

Courage is what it took for the perfect Savior of the world to bear a burden of carrying the sins of an entire world on His shoulders and ultimately dying for it.

Yet look at what He said in Verse 8 when the soldiers came looking for Him.

8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek me, let these go their way

"....I have told you that I am he....let those (the disciples) go their way....."
So many lessons in that sentence.

Christ was still thinking about His disciples. Although, He knew they would all forsake Him in His time of crisis, He still wanted to protect them as best as possible....in that moment. The disciples all knew that Christ was the Lord God, but in the moment of persecution, they all fled...when the chance presented itself because of...F.E.A.R.

Now we know that years later after Christ' death, all the disciples except Judas the betrayer, whom hanged himself and John, the disciple whom Jesus loved, died martyred deaths--beheadings, boilings, crucifixtions etc.,
The time came where they would either stand for God's Word boldly or cowardly peep from behind the curtains and eventually choose the enemy's side.
There would be no straddling the fence or hiding amongst groups of other "fellow" brethren for protection. Each person had to stand for the Lord--personally....

Psalm 18:1-50 (KJV)

18 I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.

2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies
.

4 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.


5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

6 In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.

8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.

10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.

11 He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

13 The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire
.


14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.


15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.

16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.

17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the Lord was my stay.

19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me.

20 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me
.

21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

22 For all his judgments were before me, and I did not put away his statutes from me
.

23 I was also upright before him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.

24 Therefore hath the Lord recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight
.

25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;

26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.


27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks.

28 For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.

29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

31 For who is God save the Lord? or who is a rock save our God?


32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect
.

33 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places
.

34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.

35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great
.

36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.

37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.

38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.

39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.

40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.

41 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the Lord, but he answered them not.

42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

43 Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me.

44 As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me.

45 The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.

46 The Lord liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

47 It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.

48 He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man.



49 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name.


50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore

11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake

12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven

PeaceJoyLove:

Something happened recently again, and since I have said I wont disturb you, I will keep to it. Otherwise, I would have launched another serious attack. I'm taking a break from this place again, or may deactivate. But before I take any action, I want address the issue. Pls, 12 noon to 9pm Nigerian time today I am able to reach you. If you dont want to, it's ok...I'll just leave in peace....and deactivate. But maybe I can find a solution. I want to give it a trial.

Interestingly enough, since I released my "burner" number almost 2 weeks ago, I've received a plethora of (+1) numbers...lots of spam & scam calls and have been added into text "groups" with tons of #'s all having the (954) area code.
This has happened to me several times since being a member here. I just had no one who would help me nor did I mention it. I tried stopping the problem on my own...
Sir, it's "not" nor has "ever been" me calling you randomly or sending anyone else to do it. But, I have given up trying to convince you though. God sees & knows all..I have no doubt that the truth will be revealed.
I'd love a solution as well.
I am only available today from 2:00 p.m. -3:00 p.m. --U.S. time
(which is 8:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.-- Nigeria's time).
You are welcome to put a call through to the # on my text around 8 your time.
Religion / Re: Courage From Their Cowardice by Eviana(f): 2:51pm On Sep 29
Part 3
COURAGE

I must admit: I am deeply drawn towards courageous people. It is an attractive trait and many do not posses it. I admire those people who are personally willing to give their lives for a cause that ultimately will benefit unnumbered lives.

We have either seen or read about certain instances numerous times throughout earth's existence.
While I may not have agreed with all of the situations, the one thing the leaders had in common was "courage".

Let me clarify "courageous". Meaning those persons who stand for a righteous cause to the point of death. "Righteous" meaning, a cause that does no harm to others, and demands basic civil rights for all. Even more importantly, hopefully the cause glorifies the Lord God.


"Courage" as defined by Merriam- Webster's dictionary, is the
"mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty"

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary

For Christians, "Godly courage" minus the praise and applause from people really is NOT an option. It is a mandate. One cannot serve  the Lord and be cowardly. Not a reckless courage that only displays with a crowd once the dust from a storm settles. Yes, and although it is a fact that "love" (the Fruit of the Spirit displayed in one's life) characterizes a disciple of Christ, we have been given a message to boldly give to the world: Jesus saves!

There's an old secular adage (which I am paraphrasing) that says the worst thing a great person can do is be silent when he/she knows a situation is wrong. I am guilty of having done that a few times in my life...and have tried to not repeat that cowardice deliberately in my adult life. I may even be on the other end of the spectrum now.
May one, however, never find oneself in a situation where one sits idly by--due to fear-- and does or says nothing.
Courage will be needed in these last days for those professing Christ.

God expects His children to rightfully represent Him and to proclaim His message to a sin-sick, hopeless, dying world. That takes courage.
He also expects His professed children to encourage, comfort, strengthen, lovingly rebuke and defend one another against attacks from the enemy. That takes courage.

To Be Continued...
Examples of courage vs. cowardice of certain people in certain situations in the Bible and how we "can" or "cannot" display those. The Bible is given to us as an ensample..
Religion / Re: Quality Time; Key To Intimacy by Eviana(f): 1:49pm On Sep 28
Dangerousboy:
QUALITY TIME; KEY TO INTIMACY

James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you....

When we spend time with someone, our relationship with them deepens.

It's not just enough to give gifts to your loved ones, you must spend time with them. Gifts can't substitute quality time.

Parents spend time with your Children to know them better. The upbringing of your Child is your responsibility and not that of the society. spend time with your spouse, that's how you know them.

Now you can't go far in the things of the Spirit if you don't spend time with him. The extent to which God manifest himself to/through is tantamount to the amount of time you spend with him in prayer and the word.

Spend time with God, and spend qualitative time with your loved ones also.

Hope you don't mind me commenting?
The Holy Spirit reminded me that I had been encouraging you before... and to continue doing so. The battle is not carnal nor is it against flesh and blood...

Anyhow, beautifully written...

Beautifully written...

SonofIssachar:

The Lord is my boss, and I shall not want.

He gives me peace when chaos is all around me.

He reminds me to pray before I speak in anger.

He restores my sanity.

He guides my decisions that I might honor Him in all I do.

Even though I face absurd amounts of e-mail, system failures, copier

jams, back-ordered supplies, unrealistic deadlines, staff shortages,

budget cutbacks, red tape, downsizing, gossiping co-workers and

whining customers, I won’t give up, for You are with me.

Your presence, peace and power will see me through.

You raise me up, even when the boss fails to promote me.

You claim me as your own, even when the company threatens to let me go.

Your loyalty and love are better than a bonus check.

Your retirement plan beats any 401K, and when it’s all said and done,

I’ll be working for you a whole lot longer!
