Death Comes

Life is not promised to any. our years and numbers are not written to people. No man knows the hour they will pass. Perhaps they can get a visit from an angel and they know they are departing earth. But death is inevitable on this planet.  All things die on earth. Just as all things are birthed.  We are all born knowing we will die. Why do some die early? Why are infants born dead? Why are species born with one arm or no legs? My friends I know not these things and honestly I don’t think I want to spend time trying to figure it out. I trust that something beyond our imagination created us.

 

I know what is truth, all people are birthed. all people return to their graves or the dirt of the ground, or even perhaps ashes, or however it be, but people all live then die my friends.  The bible tell us call no man a fool, but the Word does teach us what are things foolish my friends. Knowing we will all die and tomorrow is not promised to anyone. I pray many of us consider Our Maker. our Heavenly Father and perhaps sit under the Son and see what Jesus says my friends. I pray we look into our Holy Bibles. and I pray we examine our lives.

If so many people had not perverted the ending I would not even speak on such things. But I doubt many had a true vision for if they did they are either heartless or not speaking it and honestly to see what I have seen, you would speak freely unafraid, nor worried about what men think or say about you.

 

it comes a point when we have to think past religion my friends, and even Jesus came against religions my friends, but when we sit with God perhaps then people would understand why we go to Church. I am not saying God is delaying for so many signs around. but I am saying my friends what if the end does not come and you die tomorrow? My friends, what then?  What if it is not possible to ask God to forgive you in your last breathe as it seems many are waiting to do my friends?

 

I pray instead of us all looking for an answer for things we can not answer, that we consider our lives daily my friends. That each day we work out our own salvation. That we start going forward. that we start walking with God. That way no matter what comes to pass we can sing to God and say God your will be done. For God is able to pull us from the fire but if it is God’s will we will live. and if not we shall pass. But what be the point in fear? so many ways to go my friend. Do you know what hour you will die in? should be the message many speak instead of trying to figure out the hour the Father comes. I pray we consider asking our self do you know what time you will go?

 

Food for thought. have a blessed day dear people!

 

 

Restore us oh God!

Faith comes by hearing the Word, and honestly put it in your eyes and let it be a Lamp to your feet friend. Many pick up the Word and say they can not comprehend. Start listening to it. Start reading it and understanding will be given my friends! Please feel free to read the full Book and Chapters on your own.  But just start to realized the Word is what sets us free. God is beyond a book. The Holy Spirit dwells in us. Only no man can serve two masters.  each man is given some measure of faith. just will they walk in it or not? I pray there be a day when people just read the Word out loud.  If I had a church I think that is what I would do. This Book always blesses me. I pray God restore us my friends in Jesus name Amen! This Book was from Old Testament and many will say it does not exist. I pray we read both sides my friends, we read it more then once. read it often. Maybe not today but I pray it be a goal of many to just put the Word in them. Those are my prayers friend!

 

Nehemiah 1:3 And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire.

And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,

And said, I beseech thee, O Lord God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:

Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father’s house have sinned.

We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses.

Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:

But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.

10 Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.

11 Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name: and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king’s cupbearer…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Nehemiah 8:1 And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the Lord had commanded to Israel.

And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month.

And he read therein before the street that was before the water gate from the morning until midday, before the men and the women, and those that could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive unto the book of the law.

And Ezra the scribe stood upon a pulpit of wood, which they had made for the purpose; and beside him stood Mattithiah, and Shema, and Anaiah, and Urijah, and Hilkiah, and Maaseiah, on his right hand; and on his left hand, Pedaiah, and Mishael, and Malchiah, and Hashum, and Hashbadana, Zechariah, and Meshullam.

And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people; (for he was above all the people;) and when he opened it, all the people stood up:

And Ezra blessed the Lord, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the Lord with their faces to the ground.

Also Jeshua, and Bani, and Sherebiah, Jamin, Akkub, Shabbethai, Hodijah, Maaseiah, Kelita, Azariah, Jozabad, Hanan, Pelaiah, and the Levites, caused the people to understand the law: and the people stood in their place.

So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.

And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the Lord your God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law.

10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

11 So the Levites stilled all the people, saying, Hold your peace, for the day is holy; neither be ye grieved.

12 And all the people went their way to eat, and to drink, and to send portions, and to make great mirth, because they had understood the words that were declared unto them.

Beauty of the LORD

To sit and see the Beauty of the LORD, which also is the Beauty of the WORD. they are One! and blessed be those God open understanding. For those who delight in the LORD shall be given all things my friends. This is such a beautiful piece of the Word. God does not like burnt offerings anymore. God never did it is the prayers that God loves. the sacrifice God has spoken has always been, to offer your body as a sweet sacrifice for the Lord, and my friends I do not mean to murder people. As Paul spoke die to the flesh. Flee from it. The flesh is evil deeds my friend. it is not our bodies. for all bodies die on earth. We are born, we die. Only where does our spirit dwell after? The judgement that comes on the earth is from all the Righteous Blood that has been shed on earth. Since man wrote God off. Then Cain murdered Abel and even Jesus does mention such things. I pray we all sit at the Lord’s feet. and find that the beginning is the end only no more Righteous Blood shall be shed.

God did not call God’s to be stepping stones, nor door mats. men are held captive to their own desires. Thus no man can serve two gods. there is not such a thing my friends. There is God and the Son and they are ONE even if no man understands it my friends it is truth regardless.

The prayers of the Saints shall be herd and the Righteous Blood on earth was so that men can see error in their way. I pray we repent and not be like Cain my friends. I pray we do first fruits and work, and stop pretending God tells us to sin. For God does not tempt any my friends. the devil does.

I believe in heaven. I believe in hell. It is truth when I saw I say the past, I saw the future. I saw a world with no churches. I saw murder. I saw famine. I saw so much death under the sun and there was no sun and the sky was darken. and all these things had come to pass after the Spirit of the Lord was taken from earth. it was the saddest thing my eyes ever seen. and many people cried out to God. and those prayers were not heard. For God took The Holy Spirit from planet earth and the earth was destroyed by the hands of the wicked man and all deeds wicked men did my friends.

I do not know the hour my friends but I know I believe God. I know there is a rapture but men will not like it. For when God takes us all in the air it is our Spirit that departs the earth. As God departs the earth all things of God will be taken with God. and many will be left standing and the end will not happen but I do not think the world will live much after 7 years my friend. For God would not suffer that God’s go through that judgement. for that judgement is written for the wicked. and all the Just will be gone and the Righteous and even the Holy. and without love…well my friends it is was it is.

Written by Michelle Stokes, and I say this not for my vanity, and also any who try and steal it and write it in a book for their own vanity will be condemn to hell friends. I mean not to be funny, but that is what God told me to write for many times I have said such things and others steal my work and use it for their own vain things.  This is not a joke my friends.  I write it so when it comes to pass we will see who the true witnesses are my friends. God is calling people to repent and lets stop making a mockery of God. For God can not be mocked! Written in the utmost love for all people. I pray these be words many of us consider.

 

This is part one of something deeper I am writing but I wrote in the beginning how I was going to share some Word there is a reason for this. To be continued my friends!. This was copied from biblegateway.com a wonderful bless tool God gave us to use.  So many ways to read the Word today. I pray the readers day be blessed. fear are for those who are not perfected in love. I pray many find the love of God. 1 John 4:18

 

1 King 8:12 Then Solomon said, “The Lord has said that he would dwell in a dark cloud; 13 I have indeed built a magnificent temple for you, a place for you to dwell forever.”

14 While the whole assembly of Israel was standing there, the king turned around and blessed them. 15 Then he said:

“Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, who with his own hand has fulfilled what he promised with his own mouth to my father David. For he said, 16 ‘Since the day I brought my people Israel out of Egypt, I have not chosen a city in any tribe of Israel to have a temple built so that my Name might be there, but I have chosen David to rule my people Israel.’

17 “My father David had it in his heart to build a temple for the Name of the Lord, the God of Israel. 18 But the Lord said to my father David, ‘You did well to have it in your heart to build a temple for my Name.19 Nevertheless, you are not the one to build the temple, but your son, your own flesh and blood—he is the one who will build the temple for my Name.’

20 “The Lord has kept the promise he made: I have succeeded David my father and now I sit on the throne of Israel, just as the Lordpromised, and I have built the temple for the Name of the Lord, the God of Israel. 21 I have provided a place there for the ark, in which is the covenant of the Lord that he made with our ancestors when he brought them out of Egypt.”

Solomon’s Prayer of Dedication

22 Then Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord in front of the whole assembly of Israel, spread out his hands toward heaven 23 and said:

Lord, the God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven above or on earth below—you who keep your covenant of love with your servants who continue wholeheartedly in your way. 24 You have kept your promise to your servant David my father; with your mouth you have promised and with your hand you have fulfilled it—as it is today.

25 “Now Lord, the God of Israel, keep for your servant David my father the promises you made to him when you said, ‘You shall never fail to have a successor to sit before me on the throne of Israel, if only your descendants are careful in all they do to walk before me faithfully as you have done.’ 26 And now, God of Israel, let your word that you promised your servant David my father come true.

27 “But will God really dwell on earth? The heavens, even the highest heaven, cannot contain you. How much less this temple I have built!28 Yet give attention to your servant’s prayer and his plea for mercy, Lord my God. Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day. 29 May your eyes be open toward this temple night and day, this place of which you said, ‘My Name shall be there,’ so that you will hear the prayer your servant prays toward this place.30 Hear the supplication of your servant and of your people Israel when they pray toward this place. Hear from heaven, your dwelling place, and when you hear, forgive.

31 “When anyone wrongs their neighbor and is required to take an oath and they come and swear the oath before your altar in this temple,32 then hear from heaven and act. Judge between your servants, condemning the guilty by bringing down on their heads what they have done, and vindicating the innocent by treating them in accordance with their innocence.

33 “When your people Israel have been defeated by an enemy because they have sinned against you, and when they turn back to you and give praise to your name, praying and making supplication to you in this temple, 34 then hear from heaven and forgive the sin of your people Israel and bring them back to the land you gave to their ancestors.

35 “When the heavens are shut up and there is no rain because your people have sinned against you, and when they pray toward this place and give praise to your name and turn from their sin because you have afflicted them, 36 then hear from heaven and forgive the sin of your servants, your people Israel. Teach them the right way to live, and send rain on the land you gave your people for an inheritance.

37 “When famine or plague comes to the land, or blight or mildew, locusts or grasshoppers, or when an enemy besieges them in any of their cities, whatever disaster or disease may come, 38 and when a prayer or plea is made by anyone among your people Israel—being aware of the afflictions of their own hearts, and spreading out their hands toward this temple— 39 then hear from heaven, your dwelling place. Forgive and act; deal with everyone according to all they do, since you know their hearts (for you alone know every human heart),40 so that they will fear you all the time they live in the land you gave our ancestors.

41 “As for the foreigner who does not belong to your people Israel but has come from a distant land because of your name— 42 for they will hear of your great name and your mighty hand and your outstretched arm—when they come and pray toward this temple, 43 then hear from heaven, your dwelling place. Do whatever the foreigner asks of you, so that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears your Name.

44 “When your people go to war against their enemies, wherever you send them, and when they pray to the Lord toward the city you have chosen and the temple I have built for your Name, 45 then hear from heaven their prayer and their plea, and uphold their cause.

46 “When they sin against you—for there is no one who does not sin—and you become angry with them and give them over to their enemies, who take them captive to their own lands, far away or near;47 and if they have a change of heart in the land where they are held captive, and repent and plead with you in the land of their captors and say, ‘We have sinned, we have done wrong, we have acted wickedly’;48 and if they turn back to you with all their heart and soul in the land of their enemies who took them captive, and pray to you toward the land you gave their ancestors, toward the city you have chosen and the temple I have built for your Name; 49 then from heaven, your dwelling place, hear their prayer and their plea, and uphold their cause. 50 And forgive your people, who have sinned against you; forgive all the offenses they have committed against you, and cause their captors to show them mercy; 51 for they are your people and your inheritance, whom you brought out of Egypt, out of that iron-smelting furnace.

52 “May your eyes be open to your servant’s plea and to the plea of your people Israel, and may you listen to them whenever they cry out to you. 53 For you singled them out from all the nations of the world to be your own inheritance, just as you declared through your servant Moses when you, Sovereign Lord, brought our ancestors out of Egypt.”

54 When Solomon had finished all these prayers and supplications to the Lord, he rose from before the altar of the Lord, where he had been kneeling with his hands spread out toward heaven. 55 He stood and blessed the whole assembly of Israel in a loud voice, saying:

56 “Praise be to the Lord, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses. 57 May the Lord our God be with us as he was with our ancestors; may he never leave us nor forsake us.58 May he turn our hearts to him, to walk in obedience to him and keep the commands, decrees and laws he gave our ancestors. 59 And may these words of mine, which I have prayed before the Lord, be near to the Lord our God day and night, that he may uphold the cause of his servant and the cause of his people Israel according to each day’s need, 60 so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God and that there is no other. 61 And may your hearts be fully committed to the Lord our God, to live by his decrees and obey his commands, as at this time.”

Weight Loss Journey-Life Happens

So earlier this year I was priming up getting back in shape. I confessed I had put on weight. I was doing good. started to exercise. lost all this weight. I did a broadcast I was going to upload my progress. Then life happened. i got beat up. Actually beaten from a hair from death. That recovery took almost 3 months. Well sad to say it really knocked me down. After my body healed my mind has not been able to get back on track. Being bed ridden for more then two months really helped the pounds be put back on. The older I get I really try to exercise. I believe if you don’t use it you will lose it. It is just harder to maintain it because you just don’t seem to have the energy you did as a kid. or at least I don’t and I fully admit it. Not only did I have to heal from the physical aspect, there was a lot of emotional scars to overcome with that beating also.

Most of my life I was not fat. I was a health buff one could say. I did this for many years but in my 30’s depression hit me hard. I packed on pounds I had gotten to be over 100 pounds over weight. I lost it. I kept it off six years then I got lazy. and almost all the weight came back. Not quite but a lot did. So I was getting back on top of it and I am not going into much detail because honestly I don’t think it is my job to tell other’s sin so honestly I don’t really want to write too much. But I am back on my journey again. I pray this time nothing knock me down.

I am usually a strong minded person, and I was using my testimony to help others. I pray I can do that again. When I was 100 pounds over weight. I downloaded the bible on MP3 I took off walking. I started better eating and eating habits. and not even 6 months I had lost 80 pounds and gained muscle and I did it the healthy way. Never knew you could lose that much weight that quickly just by moving. or exercising. and also the level of my spiritually was the best healing. it was better then losing weight.

You know I am not really happy I got obese. But at the same time I am. it allowed me to see both sides. As a health buff I never could see how people allowed them self to be fat. I always believed being fat was a choice, and honestly I still believe that. Although I do know there are a few illness that put weight on you but other then that it is an excuse.

I got to see how people treated me different. I am not an ugly woman. Not being conceited I hear it often. But when I was huge. I just saw the difference in how people treated me. Honestly I was happy to be overweight because being hit on is a headache. Sorry my friends just being honest. But then also no matter how big I got always was someone who wanted me. I just am not a piece of meat and if you want me for my looks I will go out of my way to look tore up, because beauty fades. and I seriously don’t ever want to be loved by how I look. That is just who I am.

I always felt bad for people who were over weight. When I was younger it was a goal of mine I would go friend those large people and offer to go walking with them. I can not stand how everyone made fun of them. and I noticed the ones who made jokes never offered to work out with them. Bullies! So I would go ask them. Hi My name is Michelle. Want to go walking with me? and so we would. and I would walk with them or do exercise with them and they lost weight and I stayed in shaped. I did that many years my friends.

I would not want people making fun of me and since I got bigger I tell you I wish a me would come into my life. hard to do things on your own. I need a walking partner. but even if not I will still walk. Just instead of call people names why not offer to walk with them? if you are not part of the solution you are part of them problem. Anyways this was just a random thought. I need to get my work out on. Have a blessed day dear people.

Thank God for Restoration

Thank God for healing. Thank God for restoration. Thank God for providing jobs for many people. Thank God for doing a wonderful miracle in our lives. I have to really thank God. I see revival happening. I see restoration from just my prayers alone. it is a wonderful thing to witness and to partake in such things is a beautiful blessing! I pray many people get to witness the things I been seeing in my life. it is good to know God is in the healing business. Just feeling blessed. Thanking God early in the AM. Sometimes some of my subjects are not pleasant on the eyes but they are good for the soul. I pray people have a wonderful blessed day and may God add unto God daily.

As a messenger for God I know a lot of times we say things and we think our words don’t have an effect but when people are alone and we all think nobody sees us. My friends that is when those words become life savers. I pray my words bless many whether it be today, tomorrow or years from now. I know it will be and I just thank God in advance for being so wonderful to me and us and others. i will thank God for those who know not God and because of this thanks people will come to know God. This is a true statement. Have a blessed day dear people! Isaiah 9:6. God indeed is WONDERFUL my friends! ❤
