New International Version (NIV)
35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
The Day and Hour Unknown
36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[a] but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
It’s just a matter of time, and Jesus will return..I have been saved 14 yrs, and I now am at times excited about the coming of Christ..At one time I would avoid the Bible and church..I wouldn’t pray and I tried not to think of it..But God wouldn’t let me go..One day we will be with him in heaven, and the earth will pass away, but His word will stand forever…no one know the time or the day, it will be like the days of Noah, we will be doing our usual things and then we will see Him coming..Now keep the faith and keep looking up, because Jesus loves you and He will bring you and I home..love BettyB..Let’s pray..
Precious Lord Jesus, please hear our prayers this morning. Lord, we wait for you, we look up everyday to see and hear you coming..Today help us to realize that all the things of earth will be gone, and you and your Word stands forever..Help us to know with are hearts that there are still people out in this world that don’t know you yet, help us to spread your Word, the truth and the only Truth we will ever need is your Truth..Guide us Lord, keep us strong, in Jesus Name..amen.

Meditation/Betty’s Verse Of The Day/6-21-14
New International Version (NIV)
24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
25 When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”
26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
27 Peter answered him, “We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?”
God can do anything, anything we can think of He can do…With God all things are possible, things that we think of that maybe man can do, nothing compared to what our God can do..Let’s lift up our Lord, and praise Him today. Love BettyB…Let’s pray..

We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Meditation/Betty’s Verse Of The Day/6-18-14
New International Version (NIV)
Praise for Spiritual Blessings in Christ
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he[a] predestined us for adoption to sonship[b] through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8 that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, 9 he[c] made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
11 In him we were also chosen,[d] having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. 13 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit,
God’s plan all along was to save us by Jesus’ death. We have been rescued from the power of this present evil age -a world ruled by Satan and full of cruelty, tragedy, temptation, and deception. Being rescued from this evil age doesn’t mean that we are taken out of it, but that we are no longer enslaved to it. You were saved to live for God. Does your life reflect your gratitude for being rescued? Have you transferred your loyalty from this world to Christ? Love BETTYB ..Let’s PRAY…
Precious Lord Jesus, please hear our prayers this morning. Lord, today we stand in awe of your death on the cross, you loved us so much and died for all of us. Lord, help us to remember that we were saved to live for you, help us to show a Godly life style as we go forward this morning..Please bless our leaders and give them wisdom, bless Israel and keep her safe from evil…We ask for healing for our sick O Lord, please touch them and guide the works of their hands..We love you Lord, In Jesus Name, Amen.

Meditation/Betty’s Verse Of The Day/6-15-14
[ Do Not Worry ] “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
We don’t have to worry about our life God gave us..Jesus is our Lord for life, He says not to worry our life is more than food, and the body more that clothes,..We cannot add a single hour to our lives…Jesus will lead the way, all we have to do is trust Him and believe that His words are true..Today let’s not worry about tomorrow, it’s not hear yet..Love BettyB..Let’s pray..
Precious Lord Jesus, today please help us not to worry about our lives, help us to just trust you Lord and help us to stand still and listen for your voice..Guide our ways and keep us in your light..we love you Lord, In Jesus Name, Amen…

rescue me from those who pursue me,
for they are too strong for me.

Then the righteous will gather about me
because of your goodness to me.

New International Version (NIV)
No Other Gospel
6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.
First thing here this morning is, God is not the author of confusion, the evil one is..he will try to fool you and keep you from truth..do not let anyone take God’s truth from you..A different gospel is the evil one trying to take you for a fool, he will try to root you up and make you believe in different ways to heaven..keep your eyes on Christ and you will not drift off, this can happen before you know it..Love BettyB..Let’s pray..
Precious Lord Jesus please hear us this morning..Lord, today show us how to teach others about your love for us, and that you are the one and only way to heaven..protect our thought Lord and guide our day..We ask for your blessings on our leaders, for wisdom and safety..we ask for your protection on Israel, for you to guide them and keep them strong..Help us to stand in your light Lord, as one..In Jesus Name, Amen.
Meditation/Betty’s Verse Of The Day/6-8-14
New International Version (NIV)
Living as Those Made Alive in Christ
3 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your[a] life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
We are made new and alive in Jesus Christ our Lord. When we came to have a relationship with God’s Son, we became alive in Him. We are to think of things above, the wonderful things of God, the things of heaven..We are hidden with Christ in God..When He appears we to also will appear with Him in glory. I think of that a lot these days. Soon we will be glorified in Christ..we are going to be in heaven and He will teach us and love us always..Love Bettyb..Let’s Pray..
Precious Lord Jesus, Please hear our prayers this morning..Lord, please help us to just look to things that bring you glory and help us to not keep our minds on the things of this world..help us to focus on you and on heaven, for this place here is not our home..Guide our ways and bless the works of our hands..we love you Lord, In Jesus Name, Amen..

Listen to the song below! At the end.
Do you remember how the church is suppose to be, read it in acts…let’s take a look..
First of all the church isn’t a building, the church is the people.
We are so far away from being what God calls the church..people in Acts new what it was all about, it is making sure the people which is the church are well off and eating and being a family, eating together , studying together, and singing together..let’s get some insight below..
I never fit in where ever I went, things happened to me in church as a child so I wondered off for years, God called me back, it’s been 13 years of walking with Christ..I always wondered even now why I just don’t fit in with people, I stay home most of the time..people just never seemed to like me..I wish the church was like the passage below now in these days..
The Fellowship of the Believers
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
We must be this way if the people we see everyday that are hurting and we cannot do nothing unless God leads us with His Spirit..listen to the song..

Meditation/Betty’s Verse Of The Day/6-1-14
I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride, beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of thing has passed away. — Revelation 21:2-4
We get so tired of things of this earth, and one day God will make things clear and he will wipe away all our tears..We are His bride, He is our groom, we are the church..He is coming back for us..hold onto what He has taught you, and never let it go, Keep looking to God and He will make our paths straight..Love BettyB..Let’s Pray..
