Repentance and the Biblical Month of Elul

I hope you enjoy another powerful teaching by Jim Staley.  This one is about repentance and the Biblical month of Elul, which most of the planet is now twelve days into.  (In case you’re unfamiliar with Biblical months, each new moon begins a new month.  Elul is the sixth month of the Hebrew calendar.)

I pray you are blessed by this teaching!

How To Forgive When You Can’t

“For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”  Matthew 6:14, 15

This is a VERY powerful message by Jill Southern-Jones at Ellel Ministries entitled, How To Forgive When You Can’t.

It is an extremely timely message for God’s people as we continue through this month of Elul, a time of searching our hearts in preparation for the Day of Atonement, when our case is presented before YHWH.
I pray that His spirit convicts and brings freedom through the viewing of this teaching.  Please share it with those He puts upon your heart to share it with.
In YHWH’s mighty Love.

Vegetarian Society of Hawaii, June 12, 2012

Here are some pictures from the Vegetarian Society meeting on Oahu, June 12, 2012.  My husband and I were blessed by the presentation of Robert Cohen and his take on the milk and dairy as it relates to our health.

And here are some pictures from the Vegetarian Society Dine Out with Robert Cohen at Loving Hut on Oahu, June 15, 2012.  Beautiful people who are seasoned vegans or just starting their adventure in vegetarianism.  It was great fun trying out new foods with everyone.

Peter Horrobin – 5 Reasons Why You Cannot Live Without The Fear Of God

longing for Love

Every one of us longs to be loved. In order to satisfy this longing, some of us bounce from one relationship to another searching for something that will fill the emptiness within our hearts. Those of us who do not bounce around, instead jump into the first relationship we experience and we end up marrying the wrong person.

Regardless of what you’ve done in attempt to fill that longing within your heart, are you still feeling lonely today?

Our loneliness is the result of searching for love in all the wrong places. For any and all human love will never fill our longing for true, perfect love. Why? Because human love is not perfect love? Human love is selfish love.

I have learned from my past season of bouncing around from relationship to relationship, as well as from my recent season of aloneness, one very important truth: Only God can give perfect love because only God is perfect love. {1 John 4:8, 16, 18; 2 Timothy 1:7; 1 Corinthians 13:4-7}

When we experience this love that God wants to give to us, we will be filled to the fullest with His perfect Love and will be completely satisfied. {John 4:13-14}

Will you allow God to fill your emptiness right now? He’s waiting for you to ask Him to…

Sacred Flame

While worshipping God, I discovered a tune that I don’t know that has the most amazing lyrics.  I gotta learn the tune that goes to these words.  The words alone are beautiful, but to be able to sing them with all my heart and possible lung capacity, I can hardly wait for the day!  If anyone of you knows the tune to this hymn, please contact me.  You can go to the “About Janie” page for my contact info.  Thanks!

Fire of God, Thou Sacred Flame
by Albert F. Bayly  (1901-1984)

Fire of God, Thou sacred flame
Spirit who in splendor came,
Let Thy heat my soul refine
Till it glows with love divine.

Breath of God, that swept in power
In the pentecostal hour,
Holy Breath, be Thou in me
Source of vital energy.

Strength of God, Thy might within
Conquers sorrow, pain, and sin:
Fortify from evil’s art
All the gateways of my heart.

Truth of God, Thy piercing rays
Penetrate my secret ways.
May the light that shames my sin
Guide me holier paths to win.

Love of God, Thy grace profound
Knoweth neither age nor bound:
Come, my heart’s own guest to be,
Dwell forevermore in me.

(taken from the Seventh-day Adventist Hymnal, Hymn #263)

Spend less time concerning yourself with who is causing strife and more time pondering who is promising eternal life… John 3:16…

crying need

“The world today is in crying need of a revelation of Christ Jesus in the person of His saints. God desires that His people shall stand before the world a holy people. Why? – because there is a world to be saved by the light of gospel truth; and as the message of truth that is to call men out of darkness into God’s marvelous light is given by the church, the lives of its members, sanctified by the Spirit of truth, are to bear witness to the verity of the messages proclaimed.” -Ellen G. White, Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers pg. 458

faith

”‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’  Often the follower of Christ is brought where he cannot serve God and carry forward his worldly enterprises.  Perhaps it appears that obedience to some plain requirement of God will cut off his means of support.  Satan would make him believe that he must sacrifice his conscientious convictions.  But the only thing in our world upon which we can rely is the word of God.  ‘Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.’  Matthew 6:33.  Even in this life it is not for our good to depart from the will of our Father in heaven.  When we learn the power of His word, we shall not follow the suggestions of Satan in order to obtain food or to save our lives.  Our only question will be, What is God’s command?  and what His promises?  Knowing these, we shall obey the one, and trust the other.

“In the last great conflict of the controversy with Satan those who are loyal to God will see every earthly support cut off. Because they refuse to break His law in obedience to earthly powers, they will be forbidden to buy or sell.  It will finally be decreed that they shall be put to death.  See Revelation 13:11-17.  But to the obedient is given the promise, ‘He shall dwell on high: his place of defense whall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.’  Isaiah 33:16.  By this promise the children of God will live.  When the earth shall be wasted with famine, they shall be fed.  ‘They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.’  Psalm 37:19.”  {Desire of Ages, 121-122}
