Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Matthew 10:16
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12

Purpose for the site: To consolidate information I feel led to share and make it easier to share with others. The goal is not to change your mind, but to show you information that will hopefully cause one to dig deeper. This is my corner of the internet to put things that I like.
**I may not agree with everything from the content I share from other people
and they may not agree with me.
Apply critical thinking and use discernment to come to your own conclusions
regarding the content in videos/links.**
I try to warn folks because God said men's hearts will fail them from fear.
We are called to be wise as serpents, harmless as doves - Lest the enemy should get an advantage of us: for we are not 𝐢𝐠𝐧𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐭 of his devices! 𝐖𝐡𝐲 𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐭? Because personally, I do not want to be knee-deep participating in a Babylonian beast system when Christ rolls back that firmament. That's just me, though.
Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
The information I share here has shown me to fully trust God and no man.
How can we say we KNOW anything when they lie monumentally about EVERYTHING? I try to make that very clear in everything I put on here because I'm putting it all here for friends and family. People I care about.
Test all things!!
"As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions."
"Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. Only let us hold true to what we have attained."

We know that “all of us possess knowledge.” This “knowledge” puffs up, but love builds up.
I am not a Bible scholar or a professional writer. Just a child of God who wants to help others. I will try to make these blog posts flow well so they are easy to read. AND....I will keep it simple! My intended audience is not the ones who already know all the things. I barely skim the surface on most of these blog posts intentionally. It's up to you to dig deeper if you are led to. If the Bible seems boring to you, you're not doing it right! Haha. I'm telling ya...
These are things that have helped me cling to the hem of Christ's garment over the past several years; so if these things helped me, surely there's someone else out there it may help. Even if it's just one 🖤
Please read all disclaimers here on my home page. Remember, it's not about us and what we THINK we know. It's about Christ!
Some advice to those new to the faith, weak in the faith, or want to have faith: Read, listen to, and study things that will solidify your faith! If you are reading, listening to, or studying something that is making your faith falter, DROP IT. There may be truth to it, but it may be something you aren't ready for and you can pick back up at a later time. I am speaking from personal experience on that. We need to be able to endure patiently until either we're called home or until Jesus Christ returns. Solidify your relationship with Christ first and foremost.
Test all things; hold fast what is good. Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
That includes posts and comments on my page, other groups, or anywhere else you hear and see opinions on the Word of God. I am learning, unlearning, praying, and testing things and sharing as I go. I do NOT think I "know" it all. Trust me on that!
Bible Reading: 1 Thessalonians 5, 2 Timothy 2, 2 Timothy 3
Some are always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth (Jesus).
To be crystal clear:
I serve and worship the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The One who delivered us from literal Egypt and spiritual Egypt. It is by the shed blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I will be able to stand before the Most High. The Living God. The Alpha and the Omega who is and who was and who is to come.
I do not serve the same god as other religions! The Living God is not a religion.
1 Corinthians 3:16
"Do you not know that you are 𝗚𝗼𝗱’𝘀 𝘁𝗲𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲 and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?"
2 Thess 2:3-4
"Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘁𝗲𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗚𝗼𝗱, proclaiming himself to be God.
Have we for too long ignored the spiritual aspect of where the enemy seeks to seat himself? Between our ears and in our hearts? It's a battle for your mind, body, and soul.

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
1 Corinthians 1:18-25
18For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written,
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.”
20 Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.
22 For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
WHAT VERSION OF THE BIBLE IS BEST???
The question frequently comes up, “Which version of the Bible is the most reliable?” How about we study from several versions, use concordances, and use the discernment the Holy Spirit gives us? After all, all versions have been altered from the original in one way or another. Jesus Christ is the Word and we preach Christ crucified.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
1 Corinthians 2:2
For I determined not to know any thing among you,
save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
"Fear, death, and destruction seems to be the only thing sold these days. The manipulation of weather, food, water, air, etc is not as dangerous as the constant manipulation of our minds.
The enemy is taking shelter within the temple of the Most High.
(1 Corinthians 3:16, 2 Thess 2:3-4)
With lies, falsehoods, and fear - a mockery is being made out of society as a whole.
No longer can two minds meet based on reason and logic." -TheBigsib
“Casting Your Pearls Before Swine”
Jesus used this graphic figure of speech to warn us of the futility of trying to reach those who will not receive the truth; “cast not your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.”
– (Matthew 7:6)
He used this analogy to tell us about the reality of wasting our pearls of wisdom upon those who would not recognize the value of our words, would consider them worthless and would invariably turn and tear us to pieces with their criticism and hate.
- William R. Kimball
