We will be transformed at the Rapture, but we can be more Christlike today
Needed to read/hear this today. While I had a few private moments running errands last night I realized my attitude has dropped straight in the toilet. This week has been difficult. I got in a big argument with my husband and had to force him to go to the ER Friday night - and it was a good thing I did (he apologized and thanked me later) We got not great news from my mom's cardiologist appointment on Thursday, and on Wednesday we got test results back on our daughter that are cause for concern. And to top all that garbage news off, our vet gently informed us that our precious pooch likely has an aggressive form of cancer and our days together are few. And if that's not enough of a full plate, last Sunday the Lord gave me a task, which I started - but haven't completed (yet), and it's weighing on me to complete it. But last night in the car I realized my attitude was wrong and unhelpful and cried out for forgiveness. I then saw the barrage of stumbling blocks that were laid in my path to prevent me from completing the task I have been given. Today is a new day and I am clinging to Isaiah 40:31 "But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint."
Happy Father's Day to you Pastor Jimmy and you Pastor Mark! You are spiritual fathers to this TP family and for that we thank out Heavenly Father! Enjoy your day. Soon and very soon we will be in our Heavenly Father's House for all eternity! What a day it will be! Soon Lord soon! ❤️
Im writing this late in the day so most likely few will read this, but I had to comment. Wowza Pastor Jimmy! You hit this one out of the ballpark! ⚾️Your words were amazing and I could feel the Holy Spirit speaking through you. 🙌 I rarely comment on the messages ( even though I love and am inspired by them 😊) but had to on this one. It spoke to me. 😄
Living in this world we're assaulted daily by ways of life that are not OF God. It hits us so gradually that we don't realize it's happening until our thought process had totally changed. I recently realized how far my own thoughts had slipped and started to conform more with the ways of the world. How am I any different than an unbeliever if I'm swayed so easily into accepting things that God would not condone? I've had to profusely repent before the Lord and give him back the trust that I'd snatched out of his hands.
I'm going to share something here in case it in some way can help someone else out. My 36 year old beautiful but wayward daughter got engaged and they decided to do things like their friends and have the baby first and then the marriage. She's divorced (no kids) and baptized a year ago but was convinced recently that God had sent her this particular, amazing man. And technically he WOULD be her husband (eventually) so they could act as husband and wife. Its so interesting how we make facts fit our own agendas, isnt it? And Wow, is the devil sneaky or what?! She also had that intense " baby fever" where all she wanted was a baby and so she threw her morals away. And so, she very quickly got pregnant , was incredibly physically ill ( not normal) for 3 months , and then lost the baby. She then realized that she needed to completely end the relationship with her guy who was not God's plan for her at all. And then, the next week, she was laid off from her job which had enabled her to buy her own home a year ago. Holy shmoly!! What a storm! Whew! Anyhow, it's now a month later, she's still looking for work but the girl I was looking at has been totally transformed. We've talked in detail ( probably 5 hours a day) about how her lack in trust in God led her into the enemy's arms. She thought that she'd take her life into her own hands and do things her own way. Shes kinda stubborn. 😄 God has reprimanded her big time and she knows it's because he loves her so much. God removed her from what had become a very stressful, unhealthy relationship and also from a job that was also way too stressful and unhealthy. She's since repented ( big time) and has gained such a huge jump in maturity and wisdom in a very short period of time. I've also asked God for forgiveness myself. He's covered us with an amazing feeling of peace with bits of joy thrown in. And we both now can think of that dear little baby that is waiting in heaven for us, without tears. We both feel excited that even if she doesn't have a child on this earth, that we have one waiting for us in heaven. God knows our hearts and desires for our futures but we need to be willing to follow whatever plan he has in store for us. Whatever that path is. 🙌 Yes, God can turn what the enemy means for evil, into good. My exasperating daughter is an example of this. ❤️
We got Jesus. We got the word of God. We got this platform which is awesome, but I really really love going to church and hanging with the beloved. I love encouraging and being encouraged. This site has really helped me enlarge my field of good honest folk and I truly thank God for that. Nothing changes my attitude like fellowshippin' with the brethren like praying or being prayed for or learning something new from God's Word. And just think, very soon will be together forever! Great message pastor Jimmy! I'll be around! Maranatha!
So beautiful, thank you Pastor Jimmy!
That brought some tears.
I can’t wait to be fully transformed!
It has been such a battle, especially the last 3 years. I feel like I’m limping to the finish line but towards a glorious body!
This was my Daughter’s last week of school and the buildings and the property the school is on, used to be used during the Jesus movement😊. It is a special place. This week, I captured a large butterfly image in the clouds 🦋.
So amazing! Can’t wait🎺❤️
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s!
I needed this today. Came just at the right time for me. What a blessing this membership has been.
Amen! I love confirmation! Had just posted my verse for the day on FB when I read this from Pastor Jimmy. God is so good and has a Word for everyone. Have a great Sunday TP family! God bless.
Wonderful word this morning!! Thank Pastor Jimmy! So good!!!
Father, I pray that you will help us to changed and be transformed through Jesus Christ. That we will continue in good works, to help somebody else with a word or a song. That our attitudes with be the change agent for someone else to see the Christ in us. That their attitudes will reach out to someone else, In your name Christ Jesus we pray. Amen
Hallelujah Brother. I can’t wait either. So happy it’ll be soon. I just wanted a big ole hug from Jesus! Thank you for sharing your wisdom.
I really needed to hear that message today. Thanks for all you do to help us. Marranatha
Hi Pastor Evans, I didn’t know you were a pilot?! SO COOL! Happy Father’s Day!!✨
Thank you for this. It is something I am working on. May Yahweh bless you.

Hi all. The movie called Sound of Freedom with Jim Caviezel comes out on July 4th. He and Tim Ballard are being interviewed on TBN. They are trying to encourage people to go out and support it. Google the movie trailer. This is based on a true story. God bless you all.
