~ f a i t h ~ Hebrews 11:1 . . . Unlocking the Door to His Treasures ~ and MORE Inspirational Bible Verses for YOU!

Image

Driving home one night after work, I was out and about the town running errands . . . listening to Adrian Rogers on the radio.

He quoted, “Faith is the key that unlocks the door to His treasures”.

What a wonderful “visual” . . .

This “picture” is my quick, short rendering of how I SEE his words come alive in my heart.

The gates FLING WIDE OPEN to us, allowing us to see things we’ve never seen before–His gifts which consist of so many intangible “things”.

He opens our spiritual eyes, and satisfies our deepest hunger like nothing on this planet ever could or even attempt to fill the empty cavern within our aching souls.

In Him, there is JOY, LOVE, HOPE, PEACE, CONTENTMENT, REST, COMFORT, WISDOM, STRENGTH, GRACE, REDEMPTION, MERCY, and a DEEP APPRECIATION for who He is, for what He has done, and for how He continues to love us and carry us through all of our individual pain and daily despair–despite our right-standing with Him.

For FAITH is the substance of things hoped for . . . the evidence of things not seen!

Turn the key of faith in the lock of His gates, and GLORY in His Splendor!

Psalm 27:13 ~ I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

Psalm 37:5 ~ Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Hebrews 11:1 ~ Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Matthew 17:20 ~ And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Mark 2:5 ~ When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

Two And A “HALF” Men . . . Testimony of ANGUS T. JONES and Inspirational Bible Verses For YOU!

Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.             ~Luke 15:10~

I, too, rejoice! 

Imagine my heart’s joy and surprise when I heard the news just two short days ago!

I have always hated the show, “Two and a Half Men”. I used to wonder how any parent could have so freely chosen to allow their young child to star in that role as Jake, let alone on that particular horrible sitcom.

What would become of that poor, young child? How might this experience damage his innocent soul, and pure young mind? What would be the long-term effects of all the filth and garbage being input and stored into this young child’s mind on a regular basis?

Those are the thoughts I had, along with the thought of how selfish and distasteful it was for any responsible adult to allow this young child to be exposed to such muck, manure, and foulness.

And for what? “ENTERTAINMENT” . . . have they no regard for his young soul? How about teaching him about the Lord? Hmm? Now, there’s a wonderful thought! Take him to church, instruct him in the way he should go, so when he grows old, he will not depart from it. Jesus is our anchor of hope. 

Well, today, I am so filled with joy and gladness to see that this young boy, now a young man, named Angus T. Jones, has found his way to Christ, and is standing strong and firm in his beliefs and convictions! 

Here below are a few Scripture verses I’ve listed for YOU, along with two videos for your viewing pleasure–Angus T. Jones Testimony, Parts 1 and 2.

Enjoy viewing his beautiful testimony,

and

CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY WHOM YOU WILL SERVE~!

Joshua 24:15 ~ And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that [were] on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Joshua 24:16 ~ And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods!

Way to go, Angus T. Jones!

The Tree of Life . . . Part 3 ~ and More Inspirational Bible Verses

’twas satan’s plan to watch us rot and laughed as we decayed

It was not something I could foresee or even knew could be for me

I thought all Christians were somehow . . . a slice of nature’s freaks

All so very prim and proper ~ not what I was used to having seen

Their lives all squeaky clean

oh, no!

That is so, so not for me!

. . . Or so I thought ~

I wanted life to be full of love and fun!

To be just like the world who drank, and smoked and lived to party on

That’s what I longed to be

thinking that life of fun would somehow set me free

Oh, how wrong was I . . .

That I now so clearly see

It was a painful path for me to take

as I was led astray

believing lies the devil spake

who joyed to see me flee

a life of comfort, and protective covering

from this he wanted me

to be his little toy in paw

to smack, and shake and beat

Oh, and how he did!

he beat me down into a pulp

taking my mind and soul

off to hell, well on my way

~ until that very special day!

My brother, Gerardo,

who is known as my HERO!

came to rescue me

from the pit of hell

of which I went off to so willingly

it was satan’s darkest plans I followed ignorantly

Sadly, there are so many others just like me

as if their boat had sunk to leave them lost at sea

He stretched forth his hand in love for me

and I took it ~ but not so freely

I’d slam the phone down in his ear

Smugly

Angrily

For I thought I knew the light from dark

And as I slammed that phone down in his ear

It was pride ~ eating away, and guiding me

I am so glad that he never chose to give up on me

On with his calls he went

Always so lovingly inviting me

To come with him to his new church . . .

For him and for his gift

of showing me the way

I am so forever grateful!

For if he hadn’t left the path of destruction
and turned his life around

I would not find my feet to touch the solid ground

the ground is firm

here to support

all of our miseries

to lift us on up to higher planes

of joy, and life abundantly!

For now it is my joy to see

what it is the Lord has so willingly

Lovingly and freely offered me!

It is a life that sometimes hurts

but in the end is glee

It’s with much hope I long to see

those who hurt to join with me

to get to know this Lord of mine

that took my hand and heart for all time

His name is Jesus Christ, you see

from birth He came to love you

just as He does me

There is not one that He can’t save

out from the snare of the demon king

He was with you yesterday

here with you today,

and His promises are forevermore

to be with you always

Oh, lost one, what is it that

sets you back from holding fast

to that which is so very rich in Truth?

Do not be one to go the way on that dark path

to end up satan’s ruse

For once you leave this world behind

there is no more to do . . . 

once you’re gone far from this place

who will it be you stare in the face?

will it be the one of fiery coals

or will you make Heaven your heart’s goal?

Oh, sweet one, with Love I seek

to see you long for Jesus~ to be His freak!

So, come with me and take my hand

join with me in this fine land

where neither moth nor rust corrupt

and spend eternity!

Let the leaves of your tree fall . . .

On to the land with ease

With the Love of our Lord and Saviour’s

Gentle Loving Breeze
