Spring is Here!

Ah, March 20th, we have waited for you for so long. Spring is here and many of us have been waiting pa...well, maybe not so patiently for it to arrive.

Spring always makes me think about Easter, and Easter always makes me think about new birth. I've been watching the birds and squirrels gather up leaves and this and that for the purpose of building a nest. I watched as one squirrel stuffed his mouth full of dried up leaves from last fall and then scurry up the pine tree toward her nest area.

They are preparing for the new birth.

Just as the animals around us are preparing for the birth of their young; new birth...Jesus is calling  people into the experience of the new birth. The Bible says He calls us by name. Isn't that amazing? The Creator of heaven and earth calls us by name; calls us into His kingdom.

One day, Jesus was explaining the new birth to a man named Nicodemus. Starting in verse 3 of John ch. 3, He states, "Jesus answered and said to him, 'Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.' Nicodemus said to Him, 'How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?'  Jesus answered, 'Most assuredly I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.' The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit. (new birth)

Nicodemus answered and said to Him, 'How can these things be?' (please read John 3 for the full story)

I really hand it to Nicodemus. He was a sincere seeker of truth and because of this, Jesus revealed Himself to Nicodemus. Verse 17 says, 'For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 

It's the heart of the Father that all men be saved. Have you been born again? If not, then today is the day of salvation for you. The word says that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness (right-standing with God) and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:9-10

If you prayed that and fully agreed with it in your heart, you are saved (born again) and have joined the family of God. Celebrate your new birth. Tell someone that you invited the Lord into your life (He makes you new) to perform His miracle working power in you!

Starving Cancer: Ketogenic Diet a Key to Recovery

Have you heard of the Ketogenic Diet?

Are you or someone you love struggling with a diagnosis of cancer?

I know that far too many people seem to be getting diagnosed with cancer these days. We are hearing about it like never before! According to what is shared in this video, there is hope for victims of cancer. It sounds like a simple fix, if a person is willing to change his/her eating habits.

What would it be worth to overcome cancer? To be cancer-free!  I think most people would say almost anything.

Life is precious and if there is something we can do to prolong it and be there for our family a while longer; fulfill the Lord's call on our lives, then by all means we should find out what that 'something' is. Please watch the following video. My prayer is that the information will be of help to you or a loved one.

Prayer is very important, along with thanking God for His healing power that works in us!

Thanks to for the use of this video.

Perfect PEACE

Now there's a concept. Perfect peace. Is it even possible?

Jesus said it was (and is). Do we believe what the Lord told us? He is not a man that He will lie or change His mind. (1 Sam. 15:29)
He is God and God is telling us that we can enjoy 'perfect peace.' But how?

He tells us how in His word. God says that we will have perfect peace when we TRUST HIM and KEEP OUR MIND ON HIM. The scripture where this is found is Isaiah 26:3, which says; "You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You." This is a Promise to us that we can hold on to and remember in uncertain or fearful times.

I encourage you to read Isaiah 26 for yourself. The passage's subtitle is 'A Song of Salvation.' It goes on to say '...this song will be sung in the land of Judah.' Judah means praise. And we have come to know how important it is to enter into praising the Lord. We cannot be in fear or worry when we are praising the Lord of heaven and earth. It is powerful warfare in the Spirit.

The passage goes on in saying that we have a strong city (the Lord) talks about truth and keeping the truth. Then it says, 'in YAH, the Lord, is everlasting strength! It goes on to say 'The desire of our soul is for your name and for the remembrance of You.' Our hearts (the real spirit man) cry out for God every second of every day.

He is giving us instructions on how to stay in the love of God. He is reaffirming us that He is our strength and that He is trustworthy. He tells us that He will establish peace for us...already accomplished in us if we know His Son as Savior. He has given us, through His divine power, all things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Pet. 1:3)

Love and Peace to you today!
