September 11

Psalms 9:11

“Sing praises to the LORD, who sits enthroned in Zion! Tell among the peoples his deeds!”

Twenty years later, the grief is still real. But look at what Psalms 9:12 says:

“For he who avenges blood is mindful of them; he does not forget the cry of the afflicted.”

I don’t believe the culprits of this catastrophe have been brought to justice yet, but they will be. God knows the truth about who was behind this event, and he will avenge the blood of the innocent lives that were lost that day. 

Let your praises be known. Sing loud and proud! Let him hear your voice, and maybe he will bring about justice and hold accountable those who orchestrated the events of September 11, 2001.

How long are we going to continue to ignore what is going on? The criminal government is not even hiding its intentions anymore. Have we become so ignorant and dumbed down that we are oblivious to what is happening? I’m appalled that the rights of free citizens are being trampled upon. People who ask questions are being maligned and labeled. It’s sick! This new mandate that Joe Biden, resident of the White House, is rolling out is the next phase of the plan that criminal leaders are pushing worldwide. We can see the culprits at work! Maybe you can’t see it, but believe me, sinister actors are pulling the strings of their puppets, and they are doing a dance. It’s not what you think it’s about; they want control! This new mandate is to see how far they can push us without us fighting back. I don’t care where you stand on the v*c*in*, we are now fighting for liberty, and it will take all of us to be in the fight to win. If yesterday's announcement didn’t wake you up, I don’t know what will. 

for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, “Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:14-16

One of the joys God has given me is a love for bird watching. I know most of their names, and my kids know them too; we spent a summer identifying them when they were small. I have two feeders set up in my yard, and it is frequented by the usual; I have a whole family of cardinals that feast on it daily. Occasionally, and to my surprise, I’m blessed with the presence of a smaller red bird with black wings. It’s called a Vermilion Flycatcher. It is not a common bird seen in our area. I caught a glimpse of it one day and felt honored that I had the privilege of spotting it. I feel like it’s, as my friend would say, getting a kiss from the King. Of course, I ask God to let me see it again; and he usually does. But yesterday, I was sitting on my porch, and that little bird came to visit and stayed a while; what a sweet gift from a Father who loves me! Today, I want to remind you to stay aware of the little things the LORD does for you and show him your appreciation. He gave us beauty to behold in his creation, so take the time to soak it all in.

“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind. Job 12:7-10

September 8

As we get closer to the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, I pray for a revelation of the truth and that the real perpetrators who committed such heinous acts of war and killed innocent people receive their deserved justice. I have so many unanswered questions about this event.

I had two babies in middle school and two in elementary, and after seeing the television version of what had happened, I hurried to gather my little chicks under my wings. Fear had gripped our nation because we had no idea what had happened or why anyone would do such a thing. Now, though much of the truth is there for all to see, it is still hidden under the cloak of darkness. No matter what, we know this was a sinister act perpetrated by Satan and his minions and that unsuspecting people lost their lives. As our memories kick into overdrive this week, let’s remember all the people who lost their lives on that day and the war that followed, and pray for the families who will once again mourn the loss of their loved ones because we know they will relive those moments in time once again. God bless the American people and pray that he brings the actual guilty party to justice!

When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers. Proverbs 21:15

I’m finally moving into Timothy. We know that the books that Paul wrote are God-breathed, but if you needed confirmation, you would find it in the greeting at the beginning of 1 Timothy.

To Timothy, my true child in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. 1 Timothy 1:2

You’ve got to wonder who would have the nerve to write a greeting from “God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord,” without permission from God himself. Paul was God-fearing, and he wouldn’t compromise his position in the Lord by speaking for him unless he knew that God had allowed it. If you doubt that the New Testament scripture is an institution of God, he gives us confirmation in this verse. Ultimately, the Holy Spirit is our companion when it comes to holding onto our faith in God and his Word. If you have any doubts, I suggest you have a conversation with God because your foundation in Jesus may be compromised and it may be possible you don’t know him.

Tonight at dark, the Feast of Trumpets begins. It’s the official beginning of the new year, according to the Word of God. It’s the trumpet call, or 100 blasts of the Shofar, and represents a time for each one of us to repent, seek forgiveness from those we’ve wronged, and return items we’ve borrowed, etc. 

Those who’ve accepted Jesus as their Savior are Israel; we’ve been adopted in, but some are natural branches who are of Jewish descent. We are no longer Gentiles but sons and daughters of the Most High God.

And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work, and you shall present a food offering to the LORD.” Leviticus 23:23-25

I find it very interesting that this year it begins on Labor Day, a day when many people have the day off. I pray that during this year's high holiday festivals, the Lord makes good on his promises to hold to account the enemy who has tormented us for thousands of years. Will this year be the day of reckoning? Will Jesus return for the harvest? Only God knows, but I pray it’s during this season. A girl can dream, but God can fulfill that dream. Make this evening a solemn event, and follow through with the requirements of the upcoming feast.

Teresa’s Cooking Tips. I’m a label checker. I check the ingredients in everything. I never knew there was a difference between soda water and club soda until I checked the label, they taste the same to me, but club soda has something added besides plain water and carbonation. It’s probably harmless, but why add it if it doesn’t change the taste. Sometimes I check the packaging of things I like so I can replicate it using fresh items. Now, instead of buying canned and dried soup to add to a pot roast, I make my own because it’s easy, and I can be sure of what I’m eating. I’m not perfect when it comes to this, but at least I’m taking some precautions regarding what I put in my body. If a product doesn’t come with a list of verified ingredients, I don’t put it in my body. And, the fewer ingredients, the better. I certainly don’t take the word of a celebrity who’s probably not even eating the product they are trying to sell. If someone tells you they had a bad reaction, it’s perhaps a sign for you to take notice and avoid that product. My advice is to check the labels and not eat it if you can’t read it; be wary of any product that avoids listing its ingredients.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. 2 Thessalonians 3:18
