SHELTER IN THE STORMS
Zephaniah 3:17 “I Rejoice over You with Singing”
As a non-believer in Jesus, I had faced the storms of life alone. These were the times when I experienced the Silence of God.
The waves of the sea grew up before me like mountains. The tears that continually flowed from my eyes were dried back by the howling winds. The thunder absorbed the cries of my heart. The lightning shown around me only to illuminate the darkness that surrounded me with no escape…I was truly alone.
Then I became a BELIEVER IN JESUS. People think when they become a believer that the storms end. For me they only grew worse. But now I was no longer alone in the storm.
God wipes my tears not with the howling wind but with the gentle touch of His Nail Pierced Hands. He hears my heart cries and reminds me that He never promised there would be no storms, only that He would be with me in the storms.
When the lightning flashes it no longer illuminates the darkness around me; but shines on the path I need to walk on to get through the storm.
As in the Poem Footprints, when I look back on the path through the storm I only see one set of footprints in the sand. They do not belong to me, they belong to my Savior JESUS; who has lovingly borne me up in HIS ARMS and carried me through the storm.
May you Always Have JOY In the MORNING

Who Are YOU Following…and Where Are YOU GOING ?
The Apostasy of the Church is upon us and growing. It will be the MANY the 2/3rds that are deceived by the False RELIGIONS of Mankind who will follow the False Messiah / Anti-christ down into the pit.
BUT, GOD promises a Great Revival of multitudes within the nations who will accept JESUS during the 2nd half of the Tribulation. They will hear the Gospel from the 144,000 Jewish Spiritual Warriors and the 2 Witnesses and an Angel in Heaven.
The Gospel will fall from the Sky like HOLY rain upon those 1/3rd FEW….who were called to Believe Before the Heavens and the Earth were Created.
Those that were BORN IN THE MIND OF GOD, before they were born in their Mother’s Womb. EVEN SO COME LORD JESUS ! ! !
Believers are the True Aliens who live on this FALLEN Planet Earth. I am waiting DAILY for the AIRLIFT that will take us to HEAVEN

“Of Such Is the Kingdom of God”
The death of Children has been going on for thousands of years. Children have died because of disease, abortion, tsunami, tornado, earthquake and war.
The number of children who lost their life to any of the later; represents a loss of life throughout time that is incalculable, because their number is greater than the sands of the seashore.
God has promised a reunion in Heaven for every child of a parent who has come to the Cross-with Child Like Faith and accepted Jesus, as their Savior and Lord.
I believe that every little Child who dies before they are able to understand and respond to the gospel goes immediately to be with God in heaven.
If children have not reached the maturity by which they can make this decision, they have not broken their relationship with God. Their names are in God’s “book of life,” and will be blotted out ONLY if they sin against HIM (Ex. 32:33).
David said of his deceased newborn son, “I shall go to him, but he will not return to me” (2 Sam. 12:23). David believed that his child was with the Lord, and that he would join him one day in heaven (Ps. 23:6). I would offer the same assurance to every BELIEVER who suffers the death of a child. Your child belonged to his or her Father (GOD) and is now with Him in eternal paradise.
Our Life is about ETERNAL LIFE, not the life we live here on earth. So, which is better; to die as a child and go to heaven or to live out your life before a Holy God and be condemned to Hell for Eternity because you never considered the FACT that you are a Sinner in Need of a Savior?
A Child’s actions will not be judged by GOD… But every thought, every deed, every action, every motive of your pride filled heart will be judged by GOD; when you stand ALONE before HIM the split second after you die.
We cry over our Children that died here on earth. Yet, the Children who died will shed tears in HEAVEN over you because you never took the time to read the Very Words of GOD Himself to you in His Scriptures about the Greatest Story Ever Told: The Life, Death, Resurrection, Ascension and 2nd COMING of the SON of GOD; JESUS the CHRIST.
But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”
