Pieces of my joy, part 1

This is a very generic version of a piece of upcoming artwork I am doing. just posting this because I said I would the other day in this post.  I will be creating this into something I will consider art and a present to all my friends who need a piece of joy! I always like to look at before and after pictures. in makeovers, in restoration jobs, in house cleaning, weight loss, before and after of people who work out, and many other things. So I share this before I transform it.  If you are wondering what I speak of. it was made mention of here.  God bless everyone!


Sin is death-Hell is real

Sin is death and I know so many say they are called to judge and honestly most of them then speak judgment to homosexual people. Then they overlook liars, they overlook thieves, they overlook every sin and use the scripture to justify self. And they boast with the puffed up chest. It is my job to do so they say.

But what? if you’re going to do it to one, might as well call out all sin. I mean the bible is a book about sin, a book about life and death my friends. Sin is death and we all die. many times sin causes death sooner then it would of been without sin. and then there be a matter of our souls which live for eternal. The devil is real, and hardly any believe in God but we will believe in the devil. We will call out to ghost and spirits. and we think it is a game.  In fact, so-called games where created to do such things. But how sick is that to play with death, my friends? What book ever writes the devil as good? what book ever speaks good things when it comes to evil?

I have seen so many horror movies. I  have read so many books. I sat in so many things, and I only can remember one place that lifted up the devil. but then I think to myself these people are deceived. for they know the devil is death, and torment and agony. Sin keeps us in these things on planet earth. How do you think all these made up stories come from?

I believe in God. I believe in good and evil. many are calling evil good, and good evil. and as the bible says Woe unto them. Life is not a game my friends.  There is an evil spirit on earth. it destroys, it haunts, it torments, and that is on earth. how does any man think they can withstand hell? I myself could not withstand the hell of my own sin in planet earth.  So man, with all my heart God help me honor your Words. because just as I have seen hell on earth. I have seen God too and man I tell you the reward is greater with God! yeah you might not be super rich. You may not have many things men call wicked that is really bad for us. but the peace of God, The joy that comes, the love, the wisdom, the understanding. Just I tell you when I say the blessing is GREATER WITH GOD!

I say this because I love it and once you been to hell and then sat with God, it is really hard to go back to hell my friends. In fact, I cling to GOD! In Jesus name Daddy please I don’t want to go there!  Hell was created for monsters my friends and no man, or woman on planet earth wants to go there, and that is truth, Not if they knew truth anyways.

Call me crazy, say I am dumb, call me naive, say whatever you want about me, and all my days my eyes will be on God!  In fact, I believe nothing in planet earth or beyond will ever separate me from GOD!

God if they don’t believe in you, open their eyes so they see their master clearly.  For no man goes to hell blindly. We do it with our own actions, and that is truth friends whether people believe it or not!

there truly is too much evidence on planet earth to NOT believe in GOD and the devil my friends. Open your eyes, dear people! Written in more love then most will understand! and the utmost love for all people!

False Witnesses-Accusers- Spiritual Warfare

I am not sure people are aware but there is no difference between a false accuser and a false witness. As they are BOTH false! Sometimes I think the false accusers are worst then the false witnesses. but those are just my thoughts. The truth is both are liars, and I open this post with a prayer. Dear God I come before you today and I pray silence these liars lips and if possible help them be truth tellers in Jesus name Amen!

In my house, I believe men ought not to judge.  Most who judge only do it by what they see. they don’t know the whole story and a lot of times their judgment is inaccurate.  I believe to make false judgment makes you a false person and a liar. This is what I believe. Today we are going to examine some scriptures. When they could not hang Jesus for His deeds they did try and lay false witness against Jesus but their witness did not line up. Which honestly is the truth about being false. A false witness or accuser does not line up to truth.

In 2 Timothy we see a warning about the end days. many will see false teachers but not really ever pay attention to the false accusers.

2 Timothy 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, FALSE ACCUSERS, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

When Jesus was falsely accused His reply was often, “so you say,”  He did not bother to call them liars and when they stoned Him, He left until it was His time to die for us on the cross.  God never wanted us to speak anything false. it is called lying, or spreading rumors, or even gossip. I am going to share some more scriptures and I do pray many of us practice not judging any, but just keep the mirror in front of us. for if the whole world is false, and the whole world falsely accuses, God help me be a true witness in Jesus name Amen!

Being a false accuser is something the devil does all the time, let’s examine some of those scriptures.

Revelation 12:9-10 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Being falsely accused will sometimes rile you up, it will cause you to anger, and honestly that is some devilish stuff. That is what the devil does. tells lies and sows discord and keeps people fighting. Anything to devour their souls.  I pray many of us examine the scriptures and let the Word be our sword and our strength and our Comforter for I find these scriptures quite comforting!

Exodus 20:16, Deuteronomy 5:20, Proverbs 6:12-19, Proverbs 12:12-22, Proverbs 14:5, Proverbs 21:28, proverbs 25:18,

Proverbs 19:5 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape.

Proverbs 19:9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.

Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

I don’t know about anyone else, but that gives me great comfort, that liars shall be cut off.  It gives me great comfort to know as long as I don’t lie, I shall not be as those who do. I also do not want to falsely accuse, because honestly, I am trying to be blameless before God on my death or the Lord’s return.  Whichever comes first. I can not answer for other’s sin, but I want God to say to me. My faithful child welcome to my city! I have found you blameless. That is my desires friend. I can not answer for what others are doing.  God help me not speak lies or falsely accuse any.  In fact, may I just keep my eyes on God and rest in the LORD and wait for God’s return!  This is my joy!

Also, I love these scriptures.

Psalms 31:18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

Psalms 63:11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.

Psalms 7, Psalms 27, Psalms 31, Psalms 34, Psalms 52. Again this gives me so much peace to know that liars shall be cut off, and all deeds are rewarded and there is no reward for the wicked friends and that is truth! I thank God for the comfort of His WORD! ❤ For I do believe these words are true and as for me, myself and I, I will not partake in lying, or falsely accusing. That is where my heart is friend. When I told lies I had to pray and ask for forgiveness and strength not to tell lies. I pray these words help any grow in God. Have a blessed day beloveds! Food for spiritual growth and may it water your soul abundantly in Jesus name Amen! Written by Michelle Stokes for God’s glory and the souls of any who will receive it!

Psalms 7 :1 NLT courtesy of biblegateway.

I come to you for protection, O Lord my God.
    Save me from my persecutors—rescue me!
If you don’t, they will maul me like a lion,
    tearing me to pieces with no one to rescue me.
Lord my God, if I have done wrong
    or am guilty of injustice,
if I have betrayed a friend
    or plundered my enemy without cause,
then let my enemies capture me.
    Let them trample me into the ground
    and drag my honor in the dust. Interlude

Arise, O Lord, in anger!
    Stand up against the fury of my enemies!
    Wake up, my God, and bring justice!
Gather the nations before you.
    Rule over them from on high.
    The Lord judges the nations.
Declare me righteous, O Lord,
    for I am innocent, O Most High!
End the evil of those who are wicked,
    and defend the righteous.
For you look deep within the mind and heart,
    O righteous God.

10 God is my shield,
    saving those whose hearts are true and right.
11 God is an honest judge.
    He is angry with the wicked every day.

12 If a person does not repent,
    God[b] will sharpen his sword;
    he will bend and string his bow.
13 He will prepare his deadly weapons
    and shoot his flaming arrows.

14 The wicked conceive evil;
    they are pregnant with trouble
    and give birth to lies.
15 They dig a deep pit to trap others,
    then fall into it themselves.
16 The trouble they make for others backfires on them.
    The violence they plan falls on their own heads.

17 I will thank the Lord because he is just;
    I will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.

War Zone-Social Media

I share this for all who are speaking truth and are faced in the battle of speaking truth for as soon as you speak truth the liars will come or the false psychics, as I call them. I wrote facebok because this is where I shared this status but honestly it is mostly all over social media and even offline there will always be those who tell lies. I speak this praying it be a help to any out there today! One thing I learned about walking with God. God gives a peace no man or liar can take away. and that is a truth in my life and indeed the truth sets us free!  have a wonderful day dear people!

Social media makes me smile. I thank God for teaching me to just walk away. One thing I know about facebook. Everyone has an opinion and that is fine. we are all entitled to one. So we all say anyways. But what cracks me up and honestly makes me laugh is facebook has all these psychics. and they swear they know you. They know the things you do and that would be so awesome if it was true but right after they say they know you, they spew all these lies out their lips and say this is who you are. I use to be angered by such things. I thank God for peace!! Nowadays I find it amusing but truthfully I don’t want to entertain it. It takes two to argue and when people are telling lies, and rumors and untrue things, what is the purpose of defending yourself? let the liars tell lies. and I pray they have a blessed day as they spew lies! I also pray God deliver the liars, in Jesus name Amen!

Thank you God so much for not allowing these devils to steal my joy! Thank you for giving me peace and joy and comfort. only the devil will come and tell lies about you. He wants you to get angry about it. But the truth sets us free. if it is not true how can it bother you? It does not! I just truly thank God for teaching me that! I was sent into the wolves and lion’s den and I am glad I was because It taught me a great many precious lessons that I will always treasure and keep in my heart!  God is WONDERFUL! 

if people are spreading lies and rumors about you let them. They shall have their own reward. one thing I also learned is no deed goes left unseen by God and without a doubt, God is the one who punishes and I pray I just stay in God’s presence. for I would rather be blessed, then cursed and this is truth beloveds! God will defend the innocent and fight for His Children! I have witnessed it my whole life and honestly, the best thing on planet earth is just to be at peace with GOD! truly priceless! 

Jesus did not sit in the crowds where people threw stones. He fled the scene. What  A WONDERFUL TEACHER JESUS IS!  Put on the armor of God!  it is the best thing you can do when you are out there in a world full of liars, and also be as David and pray God help silence the liars’ lips in Jesus name Amen!

Comfortable Christianity

I love sitting in a crowd where people quote the scripture, where we talk God 24/7 I think it is beautiful. and I sat with many Christians. but then I started noticing none of these people left their circle. What is the point of being Christ like if you are hiding it in the closet? I don’t want to sit in a crowd where everyone knows the bible and high fives them self. I want to sit in the crowds nobody else does. I want to sit with criminals, with drug dealers, with addicts. I want to sit in the middle of broken people and say Hi my name is Michelle let me tell you of Jesus who saves. Jesus who heals, Jesus who delivers.

It is fun to sit with others who know God and high five each other. but my heart is in people like the former me.  I don’t want to sit with seven generation holy people. I mean no offense you don’t know my struggle, or the struggle of life and truth be told you should thank God if that is you. Thank God for keeping you sheltered. but I was not sheltered. I was in the wilderness. I was in the desert, in the valley of death is where I lived so I don’t care for comfortable Christianity. Especially when I noticed all my Christians had no problem telling me what was evil, and how I should act but can’t even speak the Gospel to the lost. I left that crowd.

I would rather sit with homeless people, drug dealers, addicts. people with problems who know they aren’t perfect. I see many say they love God, but they only speak God in the church. They only speak God in front of their other Christian friends. and that is fine and dandy. I don’t want to judge any but in my heart I just feel so this is why Jesus died? I asked God that one day and God told me to look at the scriptures deeper and so I did.

But then again I am one of the ones who was sent among wolves and maybe perhaps all Christian people can not do that. maybe there was a reason Paul was chosen and did not agree with others. I really don’t know. I just know I hardly want to sit among people who know the Lord, because honestly most of their hearts are not mine. I see many say Jehovah witness are false.Mormons are false but how many Christians you know that deliver the Gospel to you door to door? They are into comfortable Christianity.  Are they wrong? I don’t know all I know is my heart is not them.

I use to get so angry (kind of still do too honestly) nobody spoke about sin. Nobody called people out of sin. Then I said LORD here I am! I will go and so I did. I think that is one of the reasons I never took the Christian label. I never knew what it was most of my life. and now I know and I still don’t want the label. I would rather be Michelle. Because honestly some of today’s Christianity is worldly and that is truth and God says come out of these things, be not part of them! and so I did listen to God. Some, God calls separated and I am beginning to think I am one of them. Not boasting or bragging but seriously I do not care a lot for comfortable Christianity and those who can only speak Gospel in their church. it is people like that why so many go on broken and hurting, because they never know God can save them, because the ones with the knowledge sit among each other and never give it out to any new.

Sorry these words were not written to offend any but truly just how I feel. I understand all things work for God. Just truly glad to be out of the comfortable Christianity crowd and that is truth. I truly apologize if I offend any. That was not the purpose of this message. Was just mostly venting. have a blessed day dear people.

In the bible I read the justified are those who feed the homeless. those who heal the wounded. Those who are servants. Sitting in a crowd around people who know Jesus is not the only justification. I do truly pray many of us grow out of comfortable Christianity and may we be doers instead of people who preach to our self. For that is what comfortable Christianity is. I will stay where it is safe and speak Jesus among everyone else who speaks Jesus. The way of the world. I also believe in my heart the comfortable Christians are the ones who would flee in half a second when it came to needing help. Just something I observed in my own life.

Not Sure

Not sure if this is finish. it’s night so the image may not be what it looks like in day. Not quite a fan of the way I did the bible but for now it is what it is. I think I may play with this later, but well this is the finished? product? I added so many pictures because every time it was shot I think it looks different plus two are scanned! This picture has so much meaning in it and I explained some of it in Tree of life- Deep Revelation-Advance Bible Lesson. Think I added even more as i drew it in! Not sure how many pictures I will hand draw. My art is more digital! Haha! But you should see my stick people though! ❤ 😀
