The storms rage like never before, but Jesus gives us peace
Happy Sunday y’all! Pastor Jimmy Evans this is one of my favorite posts you’ve ever shared with us…. Tears flowing! You are masterfully gifted at comforting your students and pointing us to Jesus. This is one of my favorite all time Bible stories when Jesus calmed the storm. It’s packed full of truth & promises… and He’s promised us He WILL take us to the other side. He will rescue us and we will live with him for eternity… in just a little while. I love this passage and wanted to share with my TP family on this special Day of Pentecost. “He told them, “You don’t get to know the time. Timing is the Father’s business. What you’ll get is the Holy Spirit. And when the Holy Spirit comes on you, you will be able to be my witnesses in Jerusalem, all over Judea and Samaria, even to the ends of the world.” These were his last words. As they watched, he was taken up and disappeared in a cloud. They stood there, staring into the empty sky. Suddenly two men appeared—in white robes! They said, “You Galileans!—why do you just stand here looking up at an empty sky? This very Jesus who was taken up from among you to heaven WILL come as certainly—and mysteriously—as he left.” Acts 1:7-11 MSG 💛👑🔜
Steady the course!🌊
Correy Ten Boom said having endures the holocaust an imprisonment, "There is no pit we
can be put in that God's grace is not deeper."
Psalm 89:9 - You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them.
IN THE STORMS OF LIFE THE ANCHOR HOLDS! FAITH IN JESUS IS OUR ANCHOR!
I have journeyed
Through the long, dark night
Out on the open sea
By faith alone
And yet His eyes were watching me
The anchor holds
Though the ship is battered
Though the sails are torn
I have fallen on my knees
As I faced the raging seas
In spite of the storm
I've had visions
I've had dreams
I've even held them in my hand
But I never knew
They would slip right through
Like they were only grains of sand
I have been young
But I am older now
And there has been beauty
That these eyes have seen
But it was in the night
Through the storms of my life
Oh, that's where God proved
His love to me
“Weeks and months” Jimmy Evans says. I would concur. If it is Rosh Hashanah of this year, then we have just weeks and months before the Lord returns for His Bride. Will we make it? For me it is time to put my life in the order like never before, with the focus on how I am feeling and how Jesus is going to handle that, (like the Disciples yelling in the boat) and what is Jesus wanting of me in the every moment, (once I stop yelling). Easier said than done. But He rules the raging of the sea… so He can handle it. Good to know. I’m all in. Lots going on around us that Jesus is very interested in. He has definitely got our attention. And He has work to do, through us. Time to settle down. 🌻
Middle East war will rage soon. Israel has completed it's practice/preparation to strike Iran.
https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/article-708466 The IDF drills for a devastating war on home soil and away. Chariots of Fire brought the Israeli military to a new standard, as troops practiced responding to emergency events in multiple theaters simultaneously while under heavy rocket fire from all borders – especially from the North. The Israeli army expects the home front to be bombarded with 1,500 rockets a day until the last day of the war. Had to share following:
Is This What You Had in Mind? By Hal Lindsey https://www.hallindsey.com/ww-6-5-2022/
Is this what you had in mind, America? Mass shootings one after another… Government paralyzed, not by disagreements, but by hate… The ongoing loss of constitutional rights… Inflation… Stagnation… Despondency, especially among the young.…Millions caught in a seemingly unbreakable cycle of poverty. Is this what you had in mind, America, when you said God had no place in public schools, or when you made local movie theaters a cesspool of illicit sex and explicit satanism? Was this the intent when you made the local mall something like a carnival fun house with music and imagery from the pit of hell?
You made the military a giant guinea pig for social experimentation, turned military academies into institutions of wokeness that hate fundamental American values, and you promoted the most politically correct into the highest positions of authority. Even though the rank and file of your military remains the best in the world, your leaders fail them, as in Afghanistan. Through abortion, you taught the young that human life has no value, and you wonder why suicide is the leading cause of death among people between the ages of 10 and 34 — or why 18-year-olds shoot up schools and supermarkets. In school, you turned sex education into an opportunity to promote sexual perversions of all kinds. And you wonder why one in five Americans is mentally ill. You shred families. You disparage the idea of that children need fathers and mothers, and you can’t figure out why they bully and cheat and turn to violence.
You made your music all about sin and sensuality — degrading rather than uplifting. You made leaders out of the loudest, least thoughtful among us. You made a god out of popularity on social media. You replaced statesmanship with the poison-pal politics of hate. You allowed the media to become your thought shepherds rather than your factfinders.
And what about you, Church? Is this what you had in mind? Did you plan to become weak and ineffective? When you traded in Bible-infused messages with pop psychology, is this what you had in mind? Is that what you wanted when you made entertaining children the priority over teaching them? God says, “Look to Me,” but you look instead to political saviors. In fact, you look to man first in all things, leaving God as a last resort. And why not? After all, you teach that the great God, Creator of all things, is nothing more than a friendly little Pal whose primary purpose is to help you feel good about yourself. Is this what you had in mind, Church, when you chose to embrace the world’s definitions of prosperity and blessing rather than God’s — or chose a saccharine-sweet façade instead of the glorious reality of the omnipotent God? Is this what you had in mind when you chose to embrace evil, rather than to overcome evil with good — or when you chose cheap virtue signaling over faithful evangelism?
When you threw away reverence, did you have this in mind? You tried to make church doctrine all things to all people. You wanted to be liked and not seen as peculiar. But by watering down the Gospel, you laid your own children on Moloch’s altar. A remnant remains — lit from within by the glowing fires of the Holy Spirit. But to a stunning extent, the Church is drowning in worldliness. When the people of earth need more than ever for the Church to be distinct, it has emulated the world so long and with such ardor, that people have a hard time telling one from the other. But God still says, “Come out from among them, and be ye separate”! (2 Corinthians 6:17, KJV)
Amén and Amén. Be still and know that I am God.
Let's rejoice and be glad on this new day. Blessings to all. 😊🙌✝️
Thank you Pastor Jimmy. We all needed this message today. Hallelujah Amen. Gwen. South Africa. Cape Town
...only GOD. Praise His Wonderful Name ❣️❣️❣️I have a peace in my heart, that’s unexplainable, for my future but I’m terrified for my love one’s who haven’t committed their lives to Christ.
I can’t fathom living my life without Jesus Christ. I so love Him!!!
Pastor Jimmy, I just learned during our first service today that we have you booked at my church to speak during Heartland's Seek Week in August! I'm so stinking stoked! Thank you for accepting. Our pastors love you and we love you! I'll be that voice you keep hearing yell "Whooot!" every 3 seconds. 🤣 This is going to be such a powerful and anointing time for everyone involved!
Is anyone as disappointed and sad as me it didn’t happen today :( Pentecost was a very high watch day
Yesterday I posted about the message I received that I should kneel in prayer with my family at sundown last night. Well, both of my kids were busy with their friends and my husband, bless his heart, had worked on his truck's a/c trying to get it to work after it went out (miserable in the Texas heat and humidity) and then mowed the yard. He was fast asleep just after 7pm. Determined to not fail Him by ignoring His message again, I got down on my knees in the middle of the family room floor and began praying all by myself.
The show "The Chosen" has apparel that says "Get used to different" and I think I should really buy one of their shirts because last night became REALLY different, REALLY fast. I lifted my hands up to God in prayer and within a few seconds I felt a pressure on both of them, like they were heavy. Goosebumps came over my body and I felt a peace deep within my soul. I held my hands there for a minute but then thought maybe God didn't want my hands raised and was trying to urge me to lower them. Here's where the 'different' comes in. As soon as I lowered my hands to my sides, the pressure on my hands became even stronger. It took all of a millisecond to realize that the pressure was because His hands were laying on my hands!! I quickly lifted my hands again and could feel the pressure wrap around my hands. He was holding my hands! I immediately got very teary-eyed. When my dad (a devout Christ-follower) was in his final days, he told me that every time he got scared he would lift his hands and could feel Jesus laying His hands on them. I have really wanted to believe that's what was happening, but a skeptical part of me put that off as a symptom from his dementia. After last night I now know it was REAL and not a delusion. Jesus truly makes Himself felt to all who are willing to receive Him - and not just in their hearts!
Don't be discouraged that another day has passed and we are still on earth. We may not know the day or the hour but we DO know that He is walking with us and He is coming for us soon. And, He's making Himself visible to us in many different and unique ways. Continue to look up for our redemption is so near!
I woke up to the news of another shooting in the USA last night.
Peace be still. My heart longs for his return.
Jimmy, this was filled with truth. Psalms 23 is one of my favorite portions of scripture.
The Lord is my shepherd, I have all that I need.
He is our boat, our ancor, our sails.
Keeping us from the wrath. A couple of years ago I was told "something" was going to happen between September and October of 2025. Recently I discovered the Feast of Trumpets falls precisely on September 23rd on both the Hebrew calendar and the more accurate Torah Calendar. I can't imagine us still being here in today's insanity.
I recite Psalm 91 daily, (I now have memorized it) it reminds me of His protection, Love, and His Peace.
