Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. -Colossians 2:8

A Christian Homemaker's Priorities

  1. God - Pray. Read from the Bible daily. Live your life for Christ, and joy in the Lord always.

  2. Husband - Be kind to him, appreciate him, and never nag, or try to change him. Read and live the book Fascinating Womanhood.

  3. Children - Praise them for good deeds daily. Be consistent when discipline is needed. Provide steady structure, and a steady diet of love. Have a good attitude - little eyes are watching and learning

  4. Homemaking

A) Your appearance - make sure you look nice. Wear a pretty and modest dress, and head covering. Look your best every day, regardless if you plan to go somewhere or not. Make sure you are healthy - take care of your teeth, hair, skin, and figure.

B) Regular meals for you and your family - three healthy, square meals a day

C) A tidy house - even if you are behind on housework, you can still take five minutes to tidy up each room, which will make your home look clean and inviting.

D) Education and self improvement - homeschool/home educate your children, and don't forget to continue enriching yourself via reading good books. There are many books recommended on this website, and some of them are free. Take advantage of these.

Basic Daily Cleaning Routine

  • Tidy the house every morning, afternoon, and evening

  • Dust main living areas

  • Vacuum main living areas

  • Keep things picked up and put away

The internet is wonky, today, so I'll see what I can do. The net has been up and down for us, as well as cell tower service, etc. It has been raining like crazy. We went out and got some cool flooding footage, so maybe I'll upload a video of it, some time. I also have footage from the other day I need to edit and upload, so that will probably go up as my next video.

If I get a video edited today, I'll upload it tonight, if the interwebz is accessible to me. Our service is hit and miss, today.

Some Reads I Highly Suggest for Ladies

Today I'm just going to share with you a little reading list, which I think is a great reading list for ladies... If you are interested in any of the books below, just input the title into Amazon, and you can get it there...

I personally suggest you read the following books in the order provided. Some of them are actually for young teenage girls, but I suggest those as well, because they may teach us some stuff we should have learned as young girls but didn't, and can also teach us more clearly what to teach our daughters:

Dear Princess, by Rod and Staff publishing - this can be a hard book to find, but once you've attained it, you've gotten a true gem.

Maidens of Virtue, by Stacy McDonald

The Secrets of Fascinating Womanhood by David Coory

Fascinating Womanhood by Helen Andelin - NOTE: Only get the ones published in 2007 or earlier. There is a new edition that will be going out, and I'm privy to the changes, and it will be no good. Unfortunately, the daughter of the deceased Helen Andelin is apparently setting out to "update" the book, but the changes she is saying she is going to make will utterly destroy Helen's hard work.

All About Raising Children by Helen Andelin (Even though her daughter is botching her Fascinating Womanhood book, Helen's child-raising book is still great, and matches the Bible's teachings on child-rearing)

The Total Woman by Maribel Morgan

Total Joy by Maribel Morgan

The Electric Woman by Maribel Morgan

Disciplines of the Beautiful Woman, by Anne Ortlund

How to be a Happily Married Mistress, by Lois F. Bird

Home Comforts by Cheryl Mendelson

Meanwhile, if you are looking for some free books, I have written several free ebooks which go nicely with all of the above. My free ebooks are linked in the right-hand sidebar.

More Autism/Aspergers Awareness

Wednesday, April 26, 2017


When one is a planner girl, regardless if she is a Pretty Planner, or a Functional Planner, she soon gets to know a lot about pens. Here's my thoughts on just several pens that come to mind...

Pilot G2 - Not my cup of tea. I find that it doesn't write smoothly, and while it doesn't out-right skip, the ink does thin out in spots, when writing with it; especially in cursive.

Uni-ball Signo This is currently one of my favorite clickie pens. The ink color is vibrant, it's not too smeary, and it doesn't skip, thin out, bleed through, or ghost.

Bic for Her felt tip pen I find these at Dollar General. The current colors they come in, from what I've observed, is black, pink, and purple. This is my current favorite felt-tipped pen. I like it better than Sharpie, LaPen, and Staedtler. It writes very nicely, doesn't ghost or bleed, and is a very pretty pen, to boot.

Sharpie pen I like that this felt tipped pen is fairly easy to find. I've even seen these in multiple dollar stores, now. The black ink is a bit grayish, but it's not too bad of a pen.

Staedtler I have a multi-color pack. Most of the inks dried out within six months, even though all caps were on secure, and some colors I had never gotten the chance to use. However, the black is a richer, darker black than the Sharpie.

LaPen Writes great, but the pen is too skinny. Falls out of pen loops.

Bics and Zebras I used to love both Bic and Zebra pens, but lately, any Bic (other than Bic for Her felt tip) or Zebra I try, skips ink like crazy, or I have to scribble for a while, to get any ink down, to write.

Ink Joy gel pens I LOVE the .5mm gel pens. They write smooth, don't smudge, ghost, or bleed, and the ink color looks great. However, the grippie on the pen makes it about impossible to put into some pen loops, such as on the Filofax Malden. Further, I HATE the feel of that grippie. The .7mm+ Ink Joy gels are a different story. I dislike them. They skip and glop.

Target Dollar Spot ball point pens They remind me of a standard Bic ball point in writing, and they skip. However, they are only a dollar, and they are super cute. I keep one in my purse, and sometimes have one in my planner pen loop and use it purely because of how cute the Dollar Spot/Bullseye Playground pens are.

Elmer Gel Pens These are great gel pens that come in amazing colors. They don't write quite as nice as the .5 Ink Joys, but they are worth having, and loving.

Uni-Ball Vision I don't see the original Uni-Ball Visions around much, any longer. I liked them a lot, but thought the pen body was a little odd looking. They wrote wonderfully.

Uni-Ball Vision Elite My current top favorite pen. The pen body isn't too slim, but it isn't too fat, either. Its sleek design makes it fit perfectly in a Filofax Malden pen loop. The colors are vibrant, and don't seem to fade with age. They never skip, I never have to scribble to get them to write, and they barely ghost on cheap paper, and not at all on quality paper. They don't bleed through. They even seem to write well on labels and Washi, but you'll need to give them up to thirty seconds to dry, or they will smudge on Washi. The only downside I have found is small, and not much of an issue, and that is that they will smudge, if you rub before the ink dries. However, on standard paper, the ink dries within three to five seconds, so that's no biggie. In fact, if the lighting is right, you can watch the ink dry. It's kinda neat to see.

As you can guess, the current pen I'm suggesting is the Uni-Ball Vision Elite. I've seen them in both .8mm and .5mm. I have both, but currently prefer the .5mm, since I write small, and am currently in a personal/portable sized planner.

The Total Woman vs. Fascinating Womanhood

I've heard from multiple online fellow homemaking friends, that it sounds like a new edition of the book "Fascinating Womanhood" will be coming out, and according to the daughter of the original author, who is doing the rewrite, it's going to be 'updated for today.' I've been made privy to some of the changes that are planned on being put forth in the new edition, and it's enough for me to say that I may have to stop promoting "Fascinating Womanhood."

If I do continue to suggest it, I will have to put in a note, informing that I'm suggesting any edition before 2017, but nothing newer, because it looks like it's going to be a bunch of bull crap - to put it nicely.

Instead, I am heavily leaning towards promoting Maribel Morgan's book "The Total Woman," instead. I've read that book multiple times, as well as reading all of her books - more than once. "The Total Woman" is nearly identical to "Fascinating Womanhood," and is not currently going to be botched by a new edition ruining it, as far as I know. I'm doing a quick re-read of "The Total Woman," to help me decide.

A Praise Report

I'm a very active person. I've made it through my share of sports injuries. I had a torn rotator cuff, which took several months to recover, a pulled ACL in my knee, which took several months to heal, etc. The hardest injury was my plantar fasciitis. I had it in both feet for a few years. Sometimes it wasn't as bad, and sometimes I'd have to tightly wrap one or both of my feet.

Over the past month, as I've increased my running on the treadmill, it was getting worse, to where sometimes I'd walk with a limp. My right foot was minor, but the left one was in need of surgery. I know some great natural treatments for plantar fasciitis, which helped me a lot, but it wouldn't go away. Even resting my feet and not running or walking much, wearing special shoes, putting on special wraps, doing special stretches wouldn't get rid of my pain; it just helped manage it.

Last Tuesday night, I asked the Lord to either show me what I can do, which will lead to the healing of my problem, or to please heal my feet. I woke up the next day with no pain. I put my feet on the floor, and walked - no pain. My feet felt better than they've felt in over two years. Brethren, I have been completely pain free in both feet since. I no longer have any sign of plantar fasciitis whatsoever.

I don't know why some things the Lord heals, and other things He doesn't. But I do know that Heavenly Father knows best, and He will heal us, if we earnestly seek Him, and if that's what's best for us. Paul asked for healing for a malady, and did not receive it, because Heavenly Father knew it was better for Paul to have his malady, than not to.

It never hurts to ask to be healed, and to ask the Lord to heal others. If I wouldn't have asked, I'd still be in pain, today.

A Neat Planner Option

If you are on the lookout for a high quality, leather planner that isn't too big, but is in a beautiful color, and has great, stuffable pockets, you may find happiness with a kingfisher blue, personal size, Filofax Malden. I love mine, and that's the planner binder I am currently in.

I really like the color of blue for the desk sized faux leather DayTimer Malibus sold at Staples stores, but I like their genuine leather teal one (which is hard to find), better. The kingfisher blue Malden is similar in color to the DayTimer genuine leather teal, but even better.

Unfortunately, you really need to just see one IRL to grasp its actual color shade. I've found it is very hard for photos and videos to show the true color. The personal sized Filofax Malden is also perfect if you want to have your full wallet in your planner, as well. A lot of people like to do that, because then on their way out the door, they can just grab their planner, phone, and keys.

I have seen a wide range of prices for this particular planner, but the best deals I've found so far are on Amazon. In fact, I often see much cheaper deals on Maldens on Amazon than on eBay.

If you are interested in a personal sized, kingfisher blue, Filofax Malden, here are some of the best prices I've seen, so far.

If you can get a "used, like new" deal from Amazon Warehouse, where it says the product is actually new, but the packaging is damaged, you can find some great deals. That's how I ended up with my kingfisher. Meanwhile, I've seen kingfishers on eBay that cost double what I paid on Amazon.

Compassion, or Hell Fire?

Yesterday, we learned that we know we love the brethren, if we love God, and follow the Word of God:

"By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments." -1 John 5:2

A logical next question could therefore be - how do we tell others the Gospel, or about God's warnings and judgments? How do we share the truth of God's Words with others? Do we first try to form a close relationship, get them to trust us, then we tell them? Do we tell them in a very loving, gentle way? What if they die before you get a chance to tell them, or what if they just don't "get it" when you repeatedly try to gently, and lovingly tell them?

I'm one of those people who wouldn't get it. Frankly, it can take over a decade to have much of any close friendship with me. I have noticed it takes a long time to get close to me. My speed is slow in that regard, and that is fine with me. If someone were to try to tell me truth from God's Word carefully, compassionately and gently, and perhaps would dance around the topic a bit, trying to get me to figure it out, it would probably fall flat for me. I would just think you're a bit wacky and nonsensical. This tactic works for many people, certainly many people have gotten saved this way, but there are people out there like me, where the compassion route doesn't necessarily work.

How did I hear the Gospel? I didn't receive it through compassion, I received it through learning about hell, and that that is a place I do not wish to spend eternity at. THAT got my attention. Fluffy-wuffy-lovey-dovies make me want to RUN, so that is not a way to get through to me, LOL. Perhaps this is part of my Autism, but I do not like being around much emotion. When people are crying in church, for example, that's their thing. Don't expect me to join, I may even move further away from them, because, for lack of a better term, I can feel the "energy field" that accompanies strong emotion, and I don't like it. I tend to keep my feelings to myself. I rarely outwardly emote, other than joy - I like joyfulness. :-) As for other emotions, I don't tend to know how to emote "properly," anyhow, and that's probably why I don't much bother trying. If I think a person needs to know how I feel, I will just tell them.

I was saved not by compassion, but by being pulled out of the fire.

Which way are we supposed to approach people about Christ? Is it wrong to preach hell-fire and brimstone to get people saved? Or, on the flip-side, is it considered manipulative to first create a relationship, and reach them with compassion, but not get a lot into the hell-fire side? I could ask you what you think. I could even create a poll, but let's just get right to what God's Word says on the subject. Here's the clear answer straight from the Scriptures:

"Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh." -Jude 1:21-23

Bingo! Some Christians have the gift of compassion, and that's how they bring people to Christ. Others, like myself, are straight forward and to the point - you're going to hell if you don't put your faith in Christ. Hell was not created for you, it was created for the devil and the angels that sinned, but your spirit was created eternal. Therefore, if you reject heaven, hell is the only eternal place left. No New Jerusalem or heaven for you. To learn how to be heaven bound, click here.

I jokingly call myself an "elbow" in the Body of Christ (see 1 Corinthians 12). I know I poke and jab, and it can bruise others, but I never do it from malice, hate, or ill intent. I just don't. I do it, because I am driven to. I have Christian friends who are the opposite. They are driven to form close relationships with many people, and they reach people through love and compassion.

I can't claim my compassionate friends drive people away from Christ, just because that tactic would not work on me, just like it's not right for my compassionate friends to claim that I drive people away from Christ with my hell-fire-ness. I can be compassionate, and when the Spirit leads me to, I am. Because of this, I'm certain a compassionate person can also be hell-fire straight forward, when the Spirit moves them to, as well. There is nothing wrong with either.

The next time someone tells you the way you reach others for Christ is wrong, point them to this Scripture:

"Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh." -Jude 1:21-23

Loving the Brethren?

How do we know if we love the brethren? Do we know, because we try to follow the charity list in 1 Corinthians 13? Do we know, because we try to follow the description of love in 1 John 3? What happens if loving other professing Christians is interpreted by them as hateful?

Here is a simple Scripture, which gives us the answer to the question, of if we are loving the brethren, or not:

"By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments." -1 John 5:2

What a profound statement. That little verse has hours of potential Bible study packed into it. To just scratch the surface, we see that if we are doing God's commandments, but we don't love God, then we don't love the children of God - the brethren. On the other hand, if we claim to love God, but we are not keeping His commandments, then we don't love the brethren (and we don't actually love God, either).

What happens when we love God so much, that we take joy, and are driven to follow His Word? Well, we quickly find out that many of the teachings of today's main stream churches are not even in the Bible, and even worse, some of the teachings of the mainstream churches are outright against the Word of God.

We learn that some people are not at all saved, but like to say they are, because it is a "lifestyle" they have chosen, but they clearly don't exude the fruits of the Spirit, and they have no interest in genuine Christian fellowship.

If you choose to love your brethren, meaning you will keep God's commandments, and love God, you may be kicked out of your church institution. In fact, you may get kicked out of several. You may lose a friend or two. You may lose all of your friends. Some family members may become hostile, and you may lose many relationships.

Is all of the above, and more, worth having a true relationship with God? Absolutely!

God turns our mourning to joy. He takes our turmoil, and turns it to peace. While friends, family, and churches may walk out of our lives, new people walk in. You may find the Lord bringing other true believers into your life, even if it is just via online friendships.

If you are afraid to speak up against church practices that are against the Word of God (such as the Pagan Easter), and/or you are afraid of completely following the Word of God, because people will call you "mean" and "hateful," just remember God's definition trumps the world's.

God's Word says if we love God, and follow the Lord's commandments, then we love the brethren. The Word also says that the world will hate us, and that we are not of the world. We are here as pilgrims, strangers, and ambassadors for Christ. Don't get dazzled by the world's sparkles. We are here with a job from the Lord Himself, and we should do it.

PS - "God's commandments" doesn't mean the Ten Commandments, or keeping Torah. It means keeping ALL of the Word of God, because ALL of it is the commandment of God. Jesus fulfilled Torah sacrifices and feasts, we are under the spirit of the Ten Commandments (2 Corinthians 3), and by being in Jesus, we are keeping the Sabbath every single day (Hebrews 3 and 4). We are under the moral laws of the Old Testament, and all commandments of the New Testament.

Read the King James Bible for yourself, and may your eyes be more and more opened to the lies of the mainstream church. The blind is leading the blind to hell, on the pretty flowery path of false doctrines, masquerading as "Christianity."

Refuse to be fooled any longer.

The Importance of Water

Water can be the answer, or part of the answer, to many of common life woes.

  • Do you struggle with low energy, and a lack of get up and go?
    Many people turn to caffeine to remedy this, but the fix is temporary, and the body can become acclimated to high levels of caffeine, and the drug therefore becomes less effective. Further, caffeine can play its part in aging you beyond your years, like a subtle Speed. Also, caffeine can act as a diuretic, ridding your body of precious water that it needs. When coming off of caffeine, if you want to avoid the serious caffeine headaches, be prepared to drink a LOT of water. You need to flush out your system.

  • Do you get regular headaches?
    I've had headaches before, where even taking something for them, wouldn't touch them. Then, I'd consider if I'd had much water, lately. I'd relax, and sip on water, and boom - headache gone. Even if we are eating fruits, and drinking juices, if we are not consuming good ole' water, we can still dehydrate enough to cause bad headaches. We need H2O.

  • Do you struggle with dry hair and skin, acne, or other scalp and skin issues? Eczema? Cystic acne? Cellulite and weight issues?
    Water is a big helper. More pure water consumption can help clear up all the above, and more.

Think about the composition of water - H2O. It is 2 hydrogen molecules, and one oxygen molecule. This means, when we drink water, we are putting more oxygen into our body. Did you know that it's hard for cancer and disease to grow in a well oxygenated environment? Therefore, drinking plenty of water, exercising, and eating right really does help prevent all sorts of sickness. It can even help us get over colds much faster, and experience them on a more mild basis.

Since water is 2 hydrogens, another term for that is 'dihydrogen' - di means two. When speaking of one oxygen molecule, for clarity, one often puts the prefix 'mono,' meaning one, in front of it, to emphasize one molecule. Therefore the one oxygen molecule in water is monoxide. For fun, the next time you offer a guest a glass of water, instead of asking if they want a glass of water, offer them a refreshing glass of dihydrogen monoxide.

Water is such an important symbol of health and well-being, that Jesus offers salvation to us, and refers to it as a water that if we partake of, we will never thirst again:

"But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life." -John 4:14

The water Jesus offers us, is offered to everyone, because He loves us so much, that He died for us:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." -John 3:16

The Water Jesus offers to all of us in the world, is a free gift. If you have not received that free gift, please click here. If you think you have received the water of life, but your life isn't reflecting that, then you may yet be lost. Don't gamble with eternity. Jesus said above, in John 4:14 that the Water will spring within the receiver as "water springing up into everlasting life." These waters reveal themselves in us, by how we act on the Christian walk. If no one can tell you are a Christian, or if you have friends or acquaintances who don't know you're a Christian, then you need to take a look at yourself. Does this sound like the waters of life are "springing" within you? If your life didn't change after you got saved, consider that you just said a cute little prayer, but are still just as hell-bound as you were before you prayed. You must seek the Lord. Jesus said that if we love Him, we will do what He says. The Bible is the written Word of God, and teaches us Jesus' teachings. Seek the truth. May the Waters of eternal life spring in you abundantly, my brothers and sisters in Christ.

Build Your Foundation on the Rock of Salvation

"He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great." -Luke 6:48-49

"The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and exalted be the God of the rock of my salvation." -2 Samuel 22:47

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." -John 8:32

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." -John 14:6

The terms "Christian" and "personal relationship with Jesus Christ" have been bantered around so much, that for many people, they have lost their original savor. What is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Is it going to church? Is it being a "good person?" Is it via doing certain rituals, or following certain traditions? No, it is so much simpler than that.

Jesus says:

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." -Revelation 3:20

Let Jesus into your heart and life. Put your faith and trust in Him, and in Him alone.

Why did Jesus Christ come to this earth? He came to pay for our sins. Have you ever broken any of the Ten Commandments? Did you know that Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount that just looking at someone with lust in your heart is the same thing as committing adultery in your heart?

Many people will say I'm a good person. Sure, I've stolen a few paper clips in my time, and I've told some lies, but I've never killed anyone, so I'm good enough for heaven. Don't be so sure. Have you ever felt hatred toward someone? If so, then you are guilty of committing murder in your heart:

"Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him." -1 John 3:15

If you have stolen, lied, lusted after someone, hated someone, loved someone or something more than God, etc., then you have broken at least 5 of the Ten Commandments. Do you really think you'd make it to heaven? Not according to God's Word:

"Know ye not that the unrighteous {sinful} shall not inherit the kingdom of God {or go to heaven when they die}? Be not deceived: neither fornicators {sex outside of marriage, or pre-marital sex}, nor idolaters {loving something or someone more than you love God}, nor adulterers {physically, or in the heart}, nor effeminate {cross dressing}, nor abusers of themselves with mankind {homosexuality}, Nor thieves {even stealing a pen or paper clip makes you a thief}, nor covetous {inordinately desiring wealth or things}, nor drunkards, nor revilers {one who assails with abusive language}, nor extortioners {blackmail, or wresting anything from anyone via force}, shall inherit the kingdom of God." -1 Corinthians 6:9-10 {words in curly brackets are my notes}

But there is good news:

"And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God." -1 Corinthians 6:11

We are all sinners:

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" -Romans 3:23

Even Mary, the woman chosen by God to be a vessel that would carry Jesus in her womb, was a sinner, and in need of a Saviour:

"And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour." - Mary said this in Luke 1:47. Only sinners need a Saviour, and Mary also accepted Jesus Christ as her Saviour.

We are all imperfect, fallible sinners:

"This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." -1 John 1:5-8

The blood of Jesus Christ is what cleanses us from all sins. Jesus came to this earth to die to pay for our sins. You see, Leviticus tells us that 'the life is in the blood,' and that it takes spilt blood to atone for sin.

When we choose to truly believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, and to live our lives for Christ, then Christ's spilt blood cleanses us from our sins:

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." -Isaiah 1:18

Jesus tells us this:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." - Jesus said this, in John 3:16-18

Paul gives us a simple "step by step process" on how to be saved:

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed." -Romans 10:9-11

Jesus is our one and only mediator:

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;" -1 Timothy 2:5

Jesus is our High Priest:

"Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." -Hebrews 4:14-15

We are to follow the Lord and the Bible, not traditions of man:

"But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?" -Matthew 15:3

Jesus is God:

"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." -1 Timothy 3:16

If Jesus isn't the Lord of your life, then I hope that you will let Him into your heart and life this very moment.

"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." -Romans 5:8

Have you built your foundation on the Rock of Salvation?

Jesus is the way. If you would like to receive Jesus into your heart and life, then let Him know. Pray to the Lord, telling Him that you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and that you believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay the death penalty for your sins. Tell this to God in your own words, from your heart.

"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." -Romans 6:23

Believe, and Receive:

"In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise" -Ephesians 1:13

When you believe on Jesus Christ, you receive the Holy Spirit. You are sealed as a child of God.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ into your heart and life as your Lord and Saviour, and you believe that Jesus died on the cross in your place, to pay the death penalty for your sins, and that Christ rose from the dead three days later, and you are ready to let Him lead your life, and you will live for Him, then you are saved, and born again.

You are now a saved Child of God, with the Holy Spirit living within you. Dedicate your life to the Lord, and live for Him. Please get a King James Bible and turn to the Gospel of John. That is the fourth book in the New Testament. If you don't have a King James Bible, then you can read it for free, online - here.

After you've read the Gospel of John, go on to read Acts, and then Romans. These three books will bring you through the Gospel, the early church, and basic Christian doctrine. After you've read these three, then turn to the beginning of the New Testament, and read it all the way through. After that, read both the Old and New Testaments.

You should also follow the Lord and get baptized in water. A Believer's Baptism doesn't save you. Only faith in Christ saves you. A Believer's Baptism is an outward showing of your salvation. It symbolizes you being born again. When you are lowered under the water, it shows you dying to your old self, and when you are raised up out of the water, it symbolizes you being born again, as a new creature in Christ. This is called a Believer's Baptism, because, according to the Bible, a person is supposed to get baptized after they have believed on Christ. Anyone who was "baptized" before having faith in Christ just got wet - nothing more. You don't need to find a church to get baptized in. Any born again Christian can baptize you in any acceptable body of water - even a public swimming pool.

Find or start a good home church. Here is more information on Home Church, and why you should home church, or find one to join - HouseChurch.org.

Immerse yourself in the Bible. The Bible is God's love letter to you. It is also your Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.
