About My Father's Business

This morning I woke at 6:00am to the most beautiful sound, "silence".  Everyone was still asleep and I moved around quiet as a tiny mouse trying to leave them that way!  The air was crisp and cool, it's raining here and the sounds are so restful.  Last night I slept with all the windows open soaking in the air and feeling the soft, constant breeze parading through the rooms.

The night before I found myself so worn out from all of the "to-do list" items I completed and the care of my mother who is here that,  I just wantingly passed out in the arms of Jesus.  I recall lying down saying, Lord I need to rest, this old body is used up today and I think, without another thought I was asleep before my head hit the pillow.

Quiet, alone time is treasured by me as it is not often an occurrence for me now so, I sat down to write with the Holy Spirit to guide me and in a restful place I begin.

Knowing Christ and experiencing His mighty grace is all that gets me through the days as I struggle to meet the needs of those around me and my needs.  I remember life when I wasn't paying attention to God and sometimes I honestly wonder how and why I lived through it.  How I didn't completely destroy myself and then I know with the next thought, He had a plan for me.  He wasn't finished with me yet and so, I am still here.

I know there are those who don't believe, and those who believe but arrogantly continue on their same path.  I can only say to those who need for this life to change and need to find the answer to their eternity - There is only One Way

John 14:6
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

There is a new and dangerous church arising, one that claims it's all about "love", being peaceful, and kindness.  They are saying they know that God as He has always been defined is not the true God.  God is a feeling not a belief according to Oprah's latest guru.  They are saying that the belief in "any" higher power is worshiping God, sighting Muslims and Buddhist as saved even though they don't believe in God or Christ. Obama says he has read the Bible that's why he believes the Bible should not be included in political decisions, selectively sighting the most brutal scripture he could find..  What makes this new belief so dangerous is it's powerful leaders who are influencing millions and millions of people.  You will be familiar with the names. Oprah (video), Obama (video) and Billy Graham (video).

Life changes, we change. God does not change, Christ the Savior does not change, sin does not change and the way to Salvation does not change with the times, they are not relative to the era, they are forever the same.

There is one way to Salvation, from John 10 The parable of the Good Shepherd.
9.  I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

The Bible, Genesis through Revelation, the complete works are the Holy Word of God, that does not change.The Christians are now being called the haters, there have been hate laws in effect in states through out this country for ten years and the laws are growing.  They protect the non believers and sacrifice those who do know and believe. 

With the loud and strong voices of the three I have named and others, their testimony about "Not needing Christ" is growing and growing and growing.

Guess I better get a whole lot busier going about my Father's business!


  1. (Galatians 1:6-9 KJV) "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: {7} Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. {8} But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. {9} As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed."

    Amen! And Amen!

  2. I've never taken much notice to Oprah and I don't really follow the news so this is all new to me. It's sad to think that people will fall for something just because Oprah or Obama put their name behind it.

  3. Absolutely Gail

    Yes it is Annie because we are talking about peoples eternities,no turning back!

  4. I have never watched Oprah, and I am so glad of that. I don't have the words on how these videos made me feel. I have noticed however that Oprahs ratings have fallen since she has become buddies with the Obamas. I pray that her viewers have awaken to the fact that she has been leading them down the wrong path and they are turning away from her and her teachings. I have felt for a very long time that Obama is not Christian, and he says and does so many things that goes against Christian belief. Thank you for sharing these videos.

  5. Wow, I am so shocked Billy Graham is on that list. It must be the end times, even Jesus said the selected will fall away in the last days. You are certainly right that Jesus is the ONLY way to salvation. We can not let this people get to us, Our saviour is big and powerful enough to fight for his own Kingdom here on earth:)

  6. Yes He is Toyin, agreed. But I think as His soldiers we are in the battle till the end, fighting for others to find salvation. Christians have been in a "sleep" state far too long,right?

  7. The reason folks go to hell is because of sin not because they don't know Jesus. Jesus is the only way to get to Heaven. Miawa, you are right that we are in the battle until the end and it is to make Jesus (and the ultimate necessity of Him alone) known. The rest is up to Him to draw them and tender their hearts to receive His message and Himself. May we make Him famous in our lives.

  8. Amen to that Graced, Amen.
