THE MISSING CANE

I was shopping at Kohl’s recently and I had my cane with me, a gift from my daughter. I was browsing in the petite section of the store and I hung my cane on a nearby rack so I could look around more easily. It wasn’t long before I went to retrieve it, but it was nowhere to be found. I was thinking, how can this be?

My husband was waiting for me outside and I sent him a text asking him to come help me look for my cane. The petite section is small so he was thinking we’ll find it, no problem. We both looked and looked. No cane.

I went to customer service and they made an announcement for the sales associates in the petite section to look also. Nothing. Customer service said the cleaning staff will find it and return it to us if it’s in the store. So I left my name and phone number with them, hoping it would turn up.

For the next three weeks we prayed. I prayed to the Lord and said… “Lord, Your eyes see that cane right now, and I find that to be amazing. Please return it to me. If someone stole it, bring conviction and let them have no peace until they return it. If it fell under a rack somewhere, let it be found by someone.” I also prayed that if it was stolen, and the person was fearful of returning it, that they would just quietly return it to the spot where it was taken.

I prayed everyday the same thing. As I said, this went on for three weeks, and I would stop by the store every so often to see if my cane was returned. No cane.

Then the phone call came. “Hello, this is Kohl’s, someone found your cane in the petite section and brought it to customer service.”

What!

The cane was a gift, and it’s not good to lose a gift. But even so, it’s not so much about the cane, but the nearness of the Lord I felt when my prayer was answered!

I may never know where that cane was for three weeks, but If it was stolen and returned, I’m praying that person would sense the power of God in this whole episode, leading them to seek the Lord and His glorious salvation!

Matthew 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

MY MOM’S SALVATION TESTIMONY

Today, November 10th, is the date on which my Mom was born into this world.

I loved my Mom dearly and for many years I prayed for her and shared God’s Word with her.

What follows is my Mom’s testimony of being delivered from the false gospel of Rome, and being born again into the Kingdom of God. Hallelujah!

At the links below you will find all of the articles I have posted about my mother.  The Lord Jesus Christ is the “Man Under Authority” and with Him all things are possible. Walk in the Spirit.  Walk in love.  Evangelize!

MIRACLE OF MERCY

Psalm 116:1 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.

Matthew Henry:

Note, It is God’s great mercy to us that we are alive; and the mercy is the more sensible if we have been at death’s door and yet have been spared and raised up, just turned to destruction and yet ordered to return. That a life so often forfeited, and so often exposed, should yet be lengthened out, is a miracle of mercy. The deliverance of the soul from spiritual and eternal death is especially to be acknowledged by all those who are now sanctified and shall be shortly glorified.

Or, “Thou hast delivered my feet from falling into the grave, when I had one foot there already.”

A MOTHER’S DAY STORY – A story of reconciliation.

MAN UNDER AUTHORITY – I – My mother was dying, and she was not born again.  I asked the Lord to give her more time on this earth.

MAN UNDER AUTHORITY – II My mother’s road to the Lord.

MAN UNDER AUTHORITY – III– What I spoke at my mother’s funeral service.

GLORIOUS RESURRECTION LIFE – Contains a poem my mother learned as a child, and recited to me for the first time when she was in her 80’s.

HE THAT EATETH MY FLESH, AND DRINKETH MY BLOOD…

John 6:56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

Matthew Henry:

Eating this flesh and drinking this blood mean believing in Christ.

John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Ellicott:

His teaching is to be, not carnally, but spiritually understood. They think of a physical eating of His flesh, and this offends them;

Matthew Poole:

It is not therefore the carnal eating of my flesh that I intended, that is a very gross conception of yours;

nor can any such thing as that do you good:

but the words that I speak to you, they are spiritual, and such by the belief of which you may obtain a spiritual and eternal life;

for by believing those words, and obeying them, you shall come to believe in me, which is that eating my flesh and drinking my blood which I intended, not any corporeal or carnal eating.

JFB:

the flesh profiteth nothing—Much of His discourse was about “flesh”; but flesh as such, mere flesh, could profit nothing, much less impart that life which the Holy Spirit alone communicates to the soul.

John 7:38-39 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Matthew 15:17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?

Acts 7:48-50 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? Hath not my hand made all these things?

The martyrs spoke against the false Roman Catholic doctrine of Transubstantiation. Many were martyred for their faithfulness in defending the truth of God’s Word.

KANYE WEST

Update November 8, 2019

I received a comment today regarding Kanye West and thought I’d update my earlier post (below) by sharing it…

“John 15:18-25 NIV

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’[a] If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’”

Its suspicious that the world loves him. The world does not love Christ.

I dont believe he is genuine, if you watch his interviews he claims he is the best musician ever(still very arrogant and proud), he doesnt use any gospel in his music or teaching, people have to be invited and then pay in order to get into one of his “sunday services”. He also is selling sweatpants and sweat shirts for several hundred dollars that says “Jesus is King” with “Kanye West” on it. Twitter takes down anything that says “Jesus is King” because Kanye West has practically trade marked that term. Not only that, Youtube recently promoted an unknown rapper, Dax, and his song “Dear God”. It contains at least 12 expletives and is actually blasphemous. I believe the false new age religion will take place under the guise of Christianity. Be careful who you trust.

1 John 4:1 ESV / “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

Matthew 7:15-23 ESV / “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. …”

We must be careful who we trust.”

(Earlier Post)

It sounds like Kanye West was truly born again. Praying that this newborn, by God’s grace, grows into a solid discerning believer.

“Adam Tyson, senior pastor of Placerita Bible Church in Santa Clarita, California, has started making appearances at West’s eye-catching “Sunday Service” events across the country, where he’s shared an unfiltered Gospel message. While his presence on the stage is new, Tyson has been working with West for a while now.”

Listen to Pastor Tyson’s sermon.

Luke 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
