Complacency

“Complacency”
Author: Pat Aman

The Book of Zephaniah’is only 3
chapters long, and has 53 verses. If I
were to be asked how many of you have read the book, I would not be sure
who would raise their hands.

The reason is everyone loves to read about the promises of Father God; the good news, and Psalms, but very few people like to read about Father God dealing with sin in their lives.

Zephaniah is a book of forceful prophecy. The book deals with a “revival” that produces outward change, but does not fully remove
the inward heart of corruption.

Zephaniah, hammers home his message repeatedly, that the day of the Lord, judgment day is coming, when the
malignancy of sin will be dealt with. Israel and her neighbors will soon
experience the crushing hand of God’s wrath. The Book of Zephaniah
emphasizes the certainty of God’s judgment, because God hates sin.

The people of Judah lived wickedly for fifty years under King Manasseh and King Amon. Zephaniah urged, his people to repent of their wicked
lifestyle. The nation was filled with idolatry, selfishness, and immorality and God was preparing to judge them. They were lazy and they had no concern about the things of God. They disobeyed God, resistedcorrection, and relied on themselves.

Zephaniah 3: 3-5 3 Her princes in her midst are roaring lions; Her judges are evening wolves That leave not a bone till morning. 4 Her prophets are insolent, treacherous people; Her priests have
polluted the sanctuary, They have done violence to the law. 5 The LORD is righteous in her midst, He will do no unrighteousness. Every morning He brings His justice to light; He never fails, But the unjust knows no shame. But, in the mist of it all, God’s promise to
preserved a remnant, a small group of people who will continue to serve God faithfully. But it also tells that after the chastening process is complete, blessings will come in the person of the Messiah, who will be cause for praise and singing.

Zephaniah 2:7 7 The coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah;
They shall feed their flocks there; In the houses of Ashkelon they shall lie down at evening. For the LORD their God will intervene for them, And return their captives. We need to remember that God is a loving God, but He will not let you continual in a life of sin.

Complacency (an I don’t care attitude) is a deadly disease. If you do not care about God or believe that you can continue in sin without, consequences, you are headed for judgment. Many today do not seek God’s blessings or fear His wrath; such thinking is dangerous.

Zephaniah 1:12 12 “ And it shall come to pass at that time That I will search Jerusalem with lamps, And punish the men Who are settled in complacency, Who say in their heart, ‘ The LORD will not do good, Nor will He do evil.’ The sins that were found in Judah are the same ones that you must avoid, disobeying God, resisting correction, failing to trust in God, and not having any desire to learn about God.

Zephaniah 3:2 2 She has not obeyed His voice, She has not received correction; She has not trusted in the LORD, She has not drawn near to her
God. Even though God must judge sin, He is faithful to each individual who
turns to Him in faith.God is mighty and able to save, protect, and bless.

Zephaniah 3:17 17 The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His
love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”

Father God is a loving God. He does not want to see us suffer, but if we continue to do wrong and sin, He is our Heavenly Father whom loves us enough to chastise us.

John 3:16-17 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten
Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting
life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world through Him might be saved.

I know that just as Joe’s parents and my parent’s corrected us , when we did wrong. And Joe and I also corrected our girls, it helped all of us to know right
from wrong. We knew to not do that anymore. In others words we learned
our lessons, and sometimes it was the hard way.

Today, this Friday morning, spend time with Father God, and ask Him to show you what changes you may need to make in your life. Some of them you already know, so do not wait until God has to let you fall to your knees, so He can lift you up.

I cannot understand why at times we are so stubborn and we have to hit bottom before we trust our Father God to know what is best for us.

Life would be so much easier if we just behave and understand our Heavenly Father does not like to chastise us. But, we need to thank and depend on Him enough to understand, He as our Father God will do what is necessary to save us from the torments of eternal life of damnatiion.

“Jesus Walk To Calvary”

“Jesus Walk To Calvary”
Author: Pat Aman

Jesus Gave His Life For You And Me,
On Golgotha Hill, For All To See.
He Prayed “Not My Will, But Thine Be Done” In Gethsemane, God Heard The Prayers Of His Only Son.

Then He Walked That Lonely Road To Calvary, And Carried A Heavy Cross In Agony.

They Placed A Crown Of Thorns On His Head, And Rusty Nails Pierced His Precious Hands.

They Laughed At Him,
And Spit In His Face.
Just Because Of Us,
And Our Sinful State.

They Thrust A Sword Into His Side,
And The Blood Ran Down The Cross,
As His Mother Stood By. The Tears On Her Face She Could Not Hide,
For She Knew Her Son Was About To Die.

Then He Looked Up To His Father In Heaven, And Whispered The Words, “Let Their Sins Be Forgiven. Forgive Them Father, For They Know Not What They Do. For It Is For Your Children, That This I Must Now Go Through.”

Then The Clouds Turned Black,
And The Earth Begin To Shake. As He Took His Last Breath, These Words He Spake. He Said, “It Is Finished,
And I Commend My Soul To Thee,
Now Your Children Can Live For Eternity.”

Then Jesus Bowed His Head And Died,
So He Could Go To Heaven, To Sit At His Father’s Right Side.

And Then They Took Him Down From That Old Rugged Cross, And Wrapped In Him A Burial Cloth, And Placed Him In A Borrowed Tomb, Yet They Did Not Realize, As Jesus Knew, He Would Only Need It For A Day Or Two.

For On That Third Day, The Stone Would Be Rolled Away, Because Jesus Christ, Our Lord, Would Defeat Death And The Grave.

Now Satan and His Demons Are Under Our Feet, For Jesus’ Death and Resurrection Has Made It All Complete.

And Just As He Promised, He Is Coming Back, To Carry His Children Away.

So You Better Be Ready My Friend,
For It Could Be This Very Day. And Then We Will Live Forever More, On Heaven’s Bright and Beautilful Shore.

Holy Spirit Breathe In Us.

Holy Spirit Breathe On Us
Author: Pat Aman

Restoration Church had a blessed day of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit today. Father God showed up and touched His children in so many ways today.

I love the verses below from John chapter 14. What a blessed promise Jesus gave to us so that the world would come to the saving Grace and Mercy of Father God.

“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves. “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. “If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.”John‬ ‭14:3, 6-18‬ ‭

God’s Holy Spirit in us, as Christians, is our greatest gift from God. When we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit we receive the gift and the giver, because the gift is the giver. The Holy Spirit is our bond with God, our source of communication from God, and the guarantee that we are His children.

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs; heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. (Rom 8:14-17)

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Love. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. (Romans 5:5)

When we walk in obedience to the Holy Spirit we experience inner love, joy and peace.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. (Galatians 5:22-25)

God is pouring out His Holy Spirit. “But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. (Acts 2:16-18)

The Holy Spirit is promised to those who receive Jesus Christ as savior.

Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. “For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” (Acts 2:38-39)

The Holy Spirit is promised to those who ask. “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” (Luke 11:13)

The only limitation to God’s Holy Spirit in you, is you. For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit. (John 3:34)

The Holy Spirit produces rivers of liquid life inside you.

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. (John 7:37-39)

The Holy Spirit is given to you so that you can be a blessing to others. (1 Corinthians 12:7) But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: …..
(1 Corinthians 12:11) But one and the same Spirit will Holy Spirit, breathe on me.

One of my favorite songs is the old hymn, Breathe in me.”
Words: Baylus Benjamin McKinney (b. July 22, 1886; d. Sept. 7, 1952)�Music: Baylus Benjamin McKinney

Breathe on me
Until my heart is clean;
Let sunshine fill its inmost part,
With not a cloud between.

Breathe on me, breathe on me,
Holy Spirit, breathe on me;
Take Thou my heart, cleanse every part,
Holy Spirit, breathe on me.

Holy Spirit, breathe on me, �My stubborn will subdue; �Teach me in words of living flame �What Christ would have me do.

Breathe on me, breathe on me,
Holy Spirit, breathe on me;
Take Thou my heart, cleanse every part,
Holy Spirit, breathe on me.

Holy Spirit, breathe on me, �Fill me with pow’r divine; �Kindle a flame of love and zeal �Within this heart of mine.

Breathe on me, breathe on me,
Holy Spirit, breathe on me;
Take Thou my heart, cleanse every part,
Holy Spirit, breathe on me.

Holy Spirit, breathe on me, �Till I am all Thine own, �Until my will is lost in Thine, �To live for Thee alone.

Breathe on me, breathe on me,
Holy Spirit, breathe on me;
Take Thou my heart, cleanse every part,
Holy Spirit, breathe on me.

Please today, Asked Father God’s Holy Spirit breathe on you. Refresh the living Spirit living inside of you.

God Bless you.

Hard To Love

Hard To Love
Author: Pat Aman

Luke 6:32 (NCV) If you love only the people who love you, what praise
should you get? Even sinners love the people who love them.

Love, ah… it’s easy for us to love each other. We are brothers and
sisters in Christ. It’s easy to love members of your family, of your
church, and it’s easy to love friends. But how about the hard-to-love?

What about the person that has wronged you?

The person who has talked bad
about you, spread gossip, rumors?

The person that did you wrong in a
business deal, at school or at a social function?

How about that person you truly feel you can not love anymore, because of
the hatred they have shown to you? We all have them, don’t we?

Or am I the only one?

Jesus is saying, “Hey Christians, even the pagans love those who love
them. How are you going to show MY Love?”

Notice how the love of Christ
turns the “world’s” value system upside-down. The world says, “hate your enemies;” Jesus says love your enemies. But how do we do it?

I remember one time someone ask my daddy, “hey do you like me?” His
answer was, “as a human man I do not like your ways, but as a child of
God, and my brother in Christ, I love you.” WOW!

Now as the sentence above states, Jesus says love your enemies. But how do we do it?

Ready for the answer?

Hang on to your hats!

Pray. Yes, prayer.

Simple answer yes, but a powerful solution. Pray for that person who has wronged you.

Now don’t go and pray like I used to pray, “Lord get back at that person. Lord, make them pay for what they did to me, or Lord, give me a chance to blow him out!”

You really don’t think God wants us to pray to change God, do you?

Prayer doesn’t change God; it changes us. In my opinion, God uses prayer for two reasons. One — to allow us to participate in His plan and two — to
change us. Pray fervently and earnestly for someone that is hard for you
to love, and God will change your heart toward that person. God will show
you what He Himself sees in that person.

How will the world know us Christ-Followers?

They will know us by our love that flows from our love of Jesus Christ.

John 13:34-35 (NCV) I give you a new command: Love each other. You must
love each other as I have loved you. All people will know that you are my
followers if you love each other.

Tough stuff, but we need to do it, folks and we can do it armed with His love.

Think I will add a prayer to this devotional to help you and me start to realize until we forgive others we continually break Father God’s Words to us.

Matthew 5: 23
“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.

Ephesians 4:32
Forgive, and you will be forgiven.

Colossians 3:13
Be kind and tenderhearted to one another, forgiving each other just as in Christ God forgave you.

Father God we praise you and thank you for all you do for us. Father God , help us to love the hard to love; help us to see them through the perfect eyes
of Jesus. Lord, forgive us for not loving others as You command us to do.
Forgive us for falling short of Your mark. Restore us Father God, fill us up
with Your Spirit and Your love, so that through us Your love will flow to
others. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

Don’t Be Arrogant and Prideful

Don’t Be Arrogant and Prideful
Author: Pat AH Aman

We must not be arrogant when working with other fellow men, but, be loving and have a Servants Heart.

Have you ever dealt or known someone who thought the world revolves around them and their time schedule?

I think we all have and maybe even ourselves been known to fall in this category.

You as I have seen people who were even able to even lift someone’s burden, but their mind was so full of themselves that they did not realize it.

We never need to judge anyone, period!

If Father God has laid on your heart to be a blessing to someone just do it. Do not look at their circumstances and then think, well, they have children or others to help them. You may not know the what those person’s are going through are their circumstances so that is why Father God spoke to you. You just be obedient to Father God.

I think that daily we must make sure we are letting people see Jesus through our eyes.

We do this by saying, “ how would Jesus handled this situation?

If we do this then we will be walking the path that Father God has for us to walk.

Is it possible that God desires something far greater for us than our own personal ambition? Yes it is, and yes He does. This greater thing that God wills is to be found in the most unlikely of places, a place to which most of us would never look at all: servanthood.

Perhaps no Scripture verses capture both the servant-heart of Christ and the command that we follow in the footsteps of servanthood better than Philippians 2:3–8: “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”

Titus 2:7
Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity,

1 Corinthians 4:2
Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy.

Colossians 3:23
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,

Hebrews 13:5
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

1 Samuel 2:3
Talk no more so very proudly, let not arrogance come from your mouth; for the Lord is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.

Romans 12:3
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.

Proverbs 8:13
The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.

“With God’s Presence And Jesus’ P.O.A. You Can Do Anything”

“With God’s Presence And Jesus’ P.O.A. You Can Do Anything”
Author: Pat Aman

Believe that when you come into the presence of Father God you can have all you came for!

“”You can take it away, and you can use it, for all the power of God is at
your disposal in response to your faith.” Evangelist Smith Wiggleworth””

Acts 2: 28 You have made known to me the ways of life; You will make me full of joy in Your presence.

“Jesus gave us His Power of Attorney to use His Name to do His Work. Are You Working Yet? Pastor Pat Aman”

John 14: 12-14, I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do
what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these,
because I am going to the Father.
And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring
glory to the Father.You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

Our lives need to show the same things Jesus’ life did while he was on this earth.

And what did Jesus do? He loved people, he cared for them, he taught them, he healed them, and so much more.

Now understand, we in our human form cannot do anything! But, we can be a vessel that the Holy Spirit works through to do the same things Jesus did while he walked this earth.

Jesus Christ came to earth in human form. He resisted temptation and was without sin. He was tempted in any and every way we are tempted. He was showing us that we should be able to also live in this matter. When Jesus came to this earth, He became in the totally sense of Man. He became man as God fully wanted man to be. There was no discrepancy between God’s will and Jesus’ manner of life. Jesus came and lived daily in an intimate relationship with the Father God. He lived a life in the way His Father God originally intended man to live.
Although Jesus was essentially one with God and in the form of God, He did not think this quality with Father God was a thing to be totally understood and snatched away. He appeared in human form and assumed the life of a servant. Everything Jesus did, every word He spoke, every act, every thought He did as a man, even though He was Father God He was God–man.

“who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” Philippians‬ ‭2:6-13‬

There was never anything Jesus said, or did, that was not of Father God’s will. Jesus was the man God fully intended man to be. Jesus said, “He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him”

John 8:29, The one who sent me is with me; he has not left me alone, for I always do what pleases him.

Jesus was available to the Father God for Him to do in and through Him He desired. He did only that which pleased the His Father God. Jesus was a man wholly available to the Father for every moment of the thirty–three years He lived on this earth.

You must remember your body is now the temple of the Holy Spirit if you have made Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior. I want you to stand strongly on your Father God’s Holy Scriptures, His Living Word, and understand that if you believe in Jesus Christ he will take up residence in you. And you through your walk and faith in Him will do the things that He did, and even greater things than these, because He went to the Father God.

He came as a man, walked among us, died for us, rose and now sets beside His Father God. And because of this great sacrifice He left with us a Comforter, the Holy Spirit. And Jesus then told us, His disciples that: “I Myself will grant whatever you may ask in My name (presenting all I AM) so that My Father God may be glorified in and through the Me, His Son.

So, if you really love Me you will keep obey My commands.

Are you available to do Father’s God’s work?

Are you ready to complete the assignment He sent you yo earth to do?

If so, then right now, remember Father God’s promises are true. Stand on His word and believe.

Garden of Life

Garden Of Life
Author: Pat Aman

I have the poem “The Garden” written in my Bible. I cannot remember where it came from, except my sister Ruby wrote it in the a Bible of mine that she borrowed for several years.

I think she must have enjoyed the Bible, because it looks like she used it to study a lot.

I tried to get her to keep it, but, because it was given to me as a gift when I was ordained, she wanted me to have it back. I will cherish it for sure.

Galatians 6:1-10
Bear and Share the Burdens

  1. Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual
    restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest
    you also be tempted. 2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law
    of Christ. 3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. 5 For each one shall bear his own load.

Be Generous and Do Good

6 Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who
teaches. 7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap
corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. 9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.

Do You Know Jesus?

(John 3: 16-18
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only son, that whosoever
will believe in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”
‭‭
“You may know of Jesus, but do you truly know Jesus?

Do you have the head knowledge of Jesus, but not the heart knowledge?

Being good will not get you into Heaven!

You can only have eternal life by the grace of Jesus Christ. You must knowledge Him with your heart. Jesus died so you might live.

If you you cannot truly say that Jesus is your personal Savior, make the decision now to know that you know for sure.

Asked Jesus to come into your heart today. He is just standing at the door knocking, and waiting for you to invite Him in.

Joel 2:32
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

Acts 2:21
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

“Lord, I Went To Church”
Author: Unknown

I had on new clothes,
New sneakers on my feet.
I was there for class on time,
Went to the back and took my seat.

Yeah, I’m moving up,
I’m already grown.
Soon I’ll be graduating,
And out on my own.

I talked to some of my friends,
We were all having fun.
Said some things I shouldn’t have said.
Did stuff I shouldn’t have done.

I knew I was different..
I felt God touch my heart,
I knew I should set a standard,
But then I’d be set apart.

Walking to the bus,
I was not looking for strength.
I heard the car tires screeching,
But now it’s too late.

I’m standing in this room,
And I can see the heavenly gate..
Oh no! I never prayed.
I thought I had time to get it straight!

An angel walked to me,
He had a book in his hand.
I knew it was the Book of Life,
When would this dream end?

I told him my name,
And he began to look.
Then he looked at me sadly and said,
Your name is not in this book.

Angel, this is a dream,
No, I can’t be dead!
He closed the book and turned away,
He whispered – You cannot proceed ahead.

No…no this can’t be real,
Angel, you can’t turn me away.
Let me talk to God,
Maybe he’ll let me stay.

He led me to the gate,
Jesus came to me.
He did not let me in but said,
Beloved what is your need?

Jesus, I cried, please,
Don’t cast me away from you.
Tears ran down his face as he said,
You knew what you needed to do.

Lord, please I’m young,
I never thought I would die..
I thought I’d have plenty of time,
Death caught me by surprise.

Lord, I went to church, Please Jesus, I believe.
He said you would not accept me,
My love you would not receive.
Lord, there were too many hypocrites. They weren’t being true.

He took a step back and asked,
What does that have to do with you?
Lord, my family claimed to be saved,
They weren’t real. You know.

He said, I died for you,
Now I have to go.
I fell to my knees crying to Him,
Lord, I planned to be real tomorrow.

I couldn’t make Him understand,
I had never felt such sorrow.
Then it hit me hard, I said,
Lord, where will I go?

He looked into my eyes
and said, My child you already know.

Please Jesus, I begged,
The place is so hot.
It seemed to trouble and grieve him,
He whispered while tears were running down His cheeks.
DEPART FROM ME, I KNOW YOU NOT.

Lord, you’re supposed to be love,
How can you send me to damnation?
He replied, With your mouth you said you loved me,
But each day you rejected my salvation.

With that in an instant,
Day turned into night.
I never knew such torture could be,
Now too late, I know the Bible is right.

If I can tell you anything,
Hell has no age.
It is a place of torture,
Separated from God and full of rage.

You know, I thought it was funny, a joke,
But this one thing is true.
If you never accept Jesus Christ,
HELL IS WAITING FOR YOU!

So please, ask Him into your heart.

“Rev 3:15-20″” I know your doings–you are neither cold nor hot; I would that you were old or hot! Accordingly, because you are lukewarm and neither hot norcold, before long I will vomit you out of My mouth. You say, ‘I am rich,
and have wealth stored up, and I stand in need of nothing’, and you do not
know that if there is a wretched creature it is YOU–pitiable, poor,
blind, naked. Therefore I counsel you to buy of Me gold refined in thefire that you may become rich, and white robes to put on, so as to hide your shameful nakedness, and eye-salve to anoint your eyes with, so thatyou may be able to see. All whom I love, I rebuke and chastise; therefore be earnest and repent. I am now standing at the door and am knocking. If any one listens to My voice and opens the door, I will go in to be with him and will feast with him, and he shall feast with Me.”

Yes, Through It All

Yes, Through It All
Author: Pat Aman

Psalm 124: 1 – 8

  1. If the LORD had not been on our side
    let Israel say-
  2. if the LORD had not been on our side
    when men attacked us,
  3. when their anger flared against us,
    they would have swallowed us alive;
  4. the flood would have engulfed us,
    the torrent would have swept over us,
  5. the raging waters
    would have swept us away.
  6. Praise be to the LORD,
    who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
  7. We have escaped like a bird
    out of the fowler’s snare;
    the snare has been broken,
    and we have escaped.
  8. Our help is in the name of the LORD,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

I know that each of you, just as I have, has faced times of life that we thought we would not make it through. But Praise Father God, He was there, -Through It All-

No matter what you are going through know that Father God is with you and will continue to love and protect you.

Remember, Father God knows our innermost thoughts. He knows and understands our struggles, all of them and only He can keep us safe and secure, He shelters under His wings of protection. You are not alone, and you never will be. In your innermost being, He is there. He always has been.

There is a wonderful song I love, and Praise Father God each time I hear it.

It goes, “Through it all, through it all, I’ve learned to trust in Jesus I’ve learned to trust in God, Through it all, through it all, I’ve learned to depend upon His Word

“Without God on your side, you are fighting a losing battle. But with God
on your side, the battle has been won!” Pastor Pat Aman

How Are You Dealing With Change?

How Are You Dealing With Change?
Author: Pat AH Aman

Is your way of dealing with life and change helping or hurting others?

We must learn to be content.
We need to serve others with our hearts.
Help inspire others to reach their golds.

The world has continued to change, but, we are more aware because of the change because of the news, social media and all the technology we have at our hands to use.

I will say now, I will never judge you for your opinions, whether they are right or wrong. And I will pray you will not judge me if my opinions are right or wrong.

Now, I will stand up for the Word of God, the Holy Scriptures, the Word that came to earth to live. I will never compromise the Word of God.

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.

Paul knew that for those who believed, the Gospel unleashed the power of God! He was in fact declaring that when faith is mixed with the Gospel and declared, it releases divine energy that the gates of hell cannot prevail.

When I find myself in a bad situation because of the hurtful beliefs, opinions and actions of people, I may be tempted be alone. To just close the doors of my house and heart and say, forget it.

But, I in turn STOP, and get Father God’s Word down and inhale the POWER of His word that is continually at work within me.

The word “power” in the Greek word is dunamis, a word that is denoted as strength.

When I do this then I do not have the time for Satan to put thoughts of angry, judgement and hatred in my sub-conscience towards other people. Because the power, the dunamis, the strength of Father God engulfs my entire being.

I now asked you this question, how is the uncertainty of the world around you causing you to treat others?

We all need to let our lives reflect Jesus Christ in our entire being.

Now what I am fixing to say, please read each word. I am not being ugly or opinionated. But, if it is not written in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, really all our personal worldly opinions are worth nothing at all. They are just our opinion.

Only Father God knows the future. Only Father God knows the plans He has for us.

And in His Word, He had apostle John himself through the Holy Spirit say,
3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

So, please respect yourself by respecting others.

And if you asked my opinion, I will do my best to make sure it is embedded with the Word of God.

And Father God will judge each of us on Judgment Day.

“You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. Now we know that God’s judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. So when you, a mere human being, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God’s judgment? Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance? But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed. God “will repay each person according to what they have done.” To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For God does not show favoritism.”
