Content

Philippians 4 (KJV)
11 Not that I speak in respect (favor) of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.




12 I know both how to be abased (humbled), and I know how to abound (thrive): every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.



1 Timothy 6 (KJV)

6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment (clothes) let us be therewith content.
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare (entrapment), and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition (loss of the soul).



Proverbs 30 (KJV)
8 Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:
9 Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the Lord? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.





Luke 3 (KJV)
11 He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.
12 Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?
13 And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.
14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.




Hebrews 13 (KJV)
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness (craving,wishing, wanting for something) ; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Ecclesiastes 2 (KJV)

13 Then I saw that wisdom excelleth folly (lack of good sense, foolishness), as far as light excelleth darkness.




14 The wise man's eyes are in his head; but the fool walketh in darkness: and I myself perceived also that one event happeneth to them all.



21 For there is a man whose labour is in wisdom, and in knowledge, and in equity; yet to a man that hath not laboured therein shall he leave it for his portion. This also is vanity and a great evil.
22 For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation (the state of being annoyed, frustrated, or worried.) of his heart, wherein he hath laboured under the sun?
23 For all his days are sorrows, and his travail (toil) grief; yea, his heart taketh not rest in the night. This is also vanity.


24 There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.
25 For who can eat, or who else can hasten (be quick to do something.) hereunto (regarding this matter), more than I?
26 For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail (toil), to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation (harassment) of spirit.

Spiritual Mates / Soul Mates

I want you to be satisfied, fulfilled, and content
With being loved by Me alone-
With giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me-
With having an intensely personal and unique relationship
With Me alone.
Discovering that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found,
Will you be capable of the best human relationship
That I have planned for you.
I want you to be united with another after you are united with Me-
Exclusive of anyone or anything else,
Exclusive of any other desires or longings.
I want you to stop planning, stop wishing,
And allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing-
One that you cannot imagine.
I want you to have the best-
Please allow Me to bring it to you.
You just keep watching Me, trusting Me-
Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am.
Keep listening and learning the things I tell you.
You just wait.
That's all.



Don't be anxious.
Don't worry.
Don't look around at the things
Others have gotten or that I've given them.
Don't look at the things you think you want.
You just keep looking off and up to Me,
Or you'll miss what I want to show you.


And then, when you're ready, I'll surprise you with a love
Far more wonderful than any you would dream of.
You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready,
(I am working even at this moment to have both of you ready at the same time),
Until you are both satisfied exclusively with Me and the life I prepared for you,
You won't be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with me.
And this is the perfect love.


And dear one, I want you to have the most wonderful love.
I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me,
And to enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union of beauty, perfection, and love
That I offer you with Myself.
Know that I love you utterly.
I am God.
Believe and be satisfied.

Jeremiah 31 (KJV)


3 The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.




25 For I have satiated (fed) the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.



35 Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The Lord of hosts is his name:
36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.
37 Thus saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the Lord.

Isaiah 60 (KJV)

12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.


19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.
21 Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.
22 A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten (advance) it in his time.

Isaiah 57 (KJV)

1 The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.
2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.


15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite (remorseful) and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite (repentant) ones.
16 For I will not contend (cope with this) for ever, neither will I be always wroth (angry): for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.



18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.

Isaiah 51 (KJV)

19 These two things are come unto thee; who shall be sorry for thee? desolation, and destruction, and the famine, and the sword: by whom shall I comfort thee?

Isaiah 24 (KJV)

1 Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.
2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury (the practice of making unethical or immoral monetary loans intended to unfairly enrich the lender.), so with the giver of usury to him.
3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word.
4 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth (declined) and fadeth away, the haughty (arrogant) people of the earth do languish (does deteriorate).
5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed (offended) the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.


Bible Trivia

MOURNING
Did you know that Joseph and the Egyptians mourned for the lost of Joseph's father for 70 days straight? Read about it in Genesis 50 (KJV)

Take your time to mourn.  It is not selfish.  In fact it is respectful and shows honor and love to the dear one you lost.  Also, allow others to comfort you and then spend time alone like Joseph did to mourn alone (Well, not alone, God will be there to comfort you).

Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, Pregnant Woman Sentenced To Death For 'Apostasy', Won't Renounce Faith, Husband Says


Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, faces death penalty in Sudan for not renouncing her Christian faith.

Even in the face of death, a pregnant woman in Sudan says she will not renounce her Christian faith.

Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, who is in her late-twenties, was sentenced to death by hanging earlier this month after being convicted in a Khartoum court of "apostasy."   Apostasy - Wiki  is the formal disaffiliation from or abandonment or renunciation of a religion by a person. One who commits apostasy (or who apostatizes) is known as an apostate. The term apostasy is used by sociologists to mean renunciation and criticism of, or opposition to, a person's former religion, in a technical sense and without pejorative connotation.

The term is occasionally also used metaphorically to refer to renunciation of a non-religious belief or cause, such as a political party, brain trust, or a sports team.

According to the AP, Ibrahim, who is eight months pregnant, was given four days to renounce Christianity and escape death, but she refused to do so.

Ibrahim's husband, Daniel Wani, told Fox News this week that his wife's position has not wavered.

The conversion of Muslims into other religions is punishable by death in Sudan, where Islamic Shariah laws were introduced in the 1980s, according to the AP.

Ibrahim, whose father is Muslim but mother is an Orthodox Christian, reportedly told the court that she was never Muslim and was raised Christian.

According to Amnesty International, a date for Ibrahim's execution has not been announced. "Sudan won't hang Meriam while she is pregnant," the organization wrote on its UK website. "The Criminal Code states that she must give birth first, and nurse her child for two years before her execution can go ahead."

Ibrahim has reportedly been held in prison for more than three months.

Please see video for more details.

Pray for her and Christians all around the world who are being threatened with death and persecuted for believing in the Holy Bible.  Jesus is clearly her Lord! Our Sister in Christ is a pure example of what it means to be a faithful and righteous servant of Christ. Amen!

16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions (materials used for wars) of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.

4 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.

Proverbs 4 (KJV)

1 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.
2 For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.
3 For I was my father's son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.
4 He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.
5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
6 Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.
7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
8 Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.
9 She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.


13 Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.
