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!🌊

Perry I love this!! I had the great honor of knowing Corrie Ten Boom growing up and she stayed in our home! Can you imagine the impact she had on my life as a young girl. Honestly knowing her changed the trajectory of my life. Amen— “there is no pit we can be put in that Gods grace is not deeper” wow!! She was one of a kind angel on earth 💛

Wow, Kari, what a gift to have personally known Corrie!

Of course as a child I didn’t fully understand how extraordinary she was but when I held her hand and watched the premiere of her movie the Hiding Place my eyes opened up. She was a gifted storyteller and we would sit for hours just listening to her stories and love for Jesus. She told my dad (Gary Smalley) to always have an tangible object when teaching and people would always remember what you say. He never spoke without an object …💛

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

Sight unknown

And yet His eyes were watching me

The anchor holds

Though the ship is battered

The anchor holds

Though the sails are torn

I have fallen on my knees

As I faced the raging seas

The anchor holds

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

The anchor holds

Though the ship is battered

The anchor holds

Though the sails are torn

I have fallen on my knees

As I faced the raging seas

The anchor holds

In spite of the storm

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

The anchor holds

Though the ship is battered

The anchor holds

Though the sails are torn

I have fallen on my knees

As I faced the raging seas

The anchor holds

In spite of the storm

I have fallen on my knees

As I faced the raging seas

The anchor holds

In spite of the storm

“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. 🌻

Amen Kris! We have a lot of work to do… steady the course. On a personal note we are in FL together as a family and we got hit with a huge tropical storm (Alex?) It had changed course and covered North Captiva Island. Our son was scheduled to fly and ferry over but we were told this would be impossible! So, we prayed and prayed big! God controls the storms and we asked the Almighty to dissolve this one enough for Michael to make it to us safely. Every time we saw 100% rain & warnings on radar we felt discouraged but kept on praying. His flight was very delayed but… he made it and was scheduled for 9am ferry. Guess what God did— He moved the storm and at 9am sharp the rain stopped 100%. Gone! God is so good all the time! Now, 100% sunshine and we’re all together! 💛🌊🏝

Amazing testimony, Kari! We have a similar story from summer 2021. We were on a hugely-needed vacation in Marco Island, FL (we went shelling on Sanibel with our girls, then ages 9 and 6, right next to Captiva!), and Hurricane Fred was headed straight for us! We prayed, thanked God for our vacation and that Jesus is LORD even of the Sabbath! The next day, Fred took an abrupt turn (the less than 15% chance in the probability cone), and we basically got a little rain the last day of our vacation (by which time we had enough sun!). We had likewise prayed that God sets the boundaries of the sea and controls the weather, and He came through big time :-)

I agree with you on not yelling in the boat! Calming myself with the real reality that Jesus cares about us and He cares that the storm is raging. He is on the boat with us and we will make it safely to the other side. Accepting the fact that God is allowing what is happening around us to be, for His own reasons is hard to comprehend. But I don’t have to understand it, just trust His hand is in it. As long as we are still here, God has a purpose and reason for it. We have things to do, so praise the Name of Jesus and let’s go forward!

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)

Every day we get new info on the news about the price of groceries, gasoline, utilities, going sky high from inflation gone crazy. Fear, fear, and more fear.

How cool! I saw Pastor Jimmy one time when he was still pastoring in Amarillo, TX. I enjoyed his sermon. I had seen him on TV before that, and he looked the same in person as he did on TV. Some people....I don't know what they do to them, but they don't look anything in person like they do on TV :)

Oh no kidding! I have no idea what they do but most people look completely different than all the effects and makeup they put on for the camera. I believe that PJimmy looks the same on and off because I get the feeling he knows how and still changes his own flat tires. His sermons are amazing even from back then. I listen to so many of his and Miss Karen's podcasts each day you would think his voice would be like nails on a chalkboard to me by now, but it sure doesn't.

I know❤️i have other sources I follow like this one and a lot of people were saying 2am our time-9am israel time because that is the time Peter says they received the Holy Spirit.

But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them ..."Indeed, these are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only nine o'clock in the morning." ~ (Act 2:1).

Other translations say the third hour and that means 9am because israel does their times sunup to sundown.

I think we all feel the disappointment. But if we are still here that means there is "just 1 more" that needs to come back to the flock and you, or me, or anyone of us, could be instrumental in changing that one person's eternity. So, after I pull myself up from my bootstraps and let go of the disappointment, I pray that God will give me that 1 more who is in need of hearing His word and being pointed back to the flock. For me, focusing on His mission seems to take a lot of the sting out of the waiting. PERHAPS TODAY!

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!

Hi Chris! Many years ago after the Lord drew my husband and I to Him not in religion but in a 24/7 relationship, a sister in the Lord in church was diagnosed with cancer. Before she had surgery many sisters had prayed for her. After the surgery I went up to the hospital to see her. She looked at me and said, "Carol I know you will believe what I share. I was so very terrified as they wheeled me to the OR. A great fear came over me and I felt paralyzed. Suddenly I felt a large hand take hold of mine and instantly the peace that only God can give wrapped around me like a warm blanket! I did not see the hand or the person that owned it but I knew it was Jesus. His hand held mine into the OR as I was anesthetized. Hours later in the recovery room when I was fully awake His hand was still holding mine and then as suddenly as it had come it was removed." Elizabeth who was in her early 60's lived another 20 years totally cancer free. I would imagine she felt His hand once again as she closed her eyes in sleep and crossed into eternity!

Chris the Lord always blesses our obedience even if our response isn't the first time He asks for it. GBU Chris.

Carol, Your friend's story brought me to tears. Her story of life is beautiful and impactful. Thank you so much for sharing. That's the kind of Christ-follower I want to grow into. Knowing without questioning or rationalizing. Obeying without feeling self-conscious or awkward. Just loving and accepting. I was with my dad throughout his final days and even after slipped into a coma, periodically that hand would go up reaching for Jesus. I'm sure that He held my dad's hand and was the first one to greet him on the other side.

Along these same lines - I was watching a Hallmark movie a little bit ago called One Summer. In the movie a teen was telling her new boss that her father was a vet who had been shipped home because his lungs were in bad shape. She said there wasn't anything the doctors could do for him. Her mom was on her way to pick up a prescription for him at the pharmacy when she was killed in a car accident. The teen said her dad went for a check-up after the accident and he'd been healed. Doctors declared it a miracle. The boss said - no, she didn't think it was a miracle. Instead, he just willed himself into getting well because he wanted to stay and take care of her and her brother. And with that I turned off the movie and am ready to cancel my subscription to Hallmark Movies. They just couldn't stay a decent movie channel without interjecting all this woke garbage.

Chris, I love this! I can attest to feeling Jesus’s hand on you. The peace that comes over you is truly ‘the peace that transcends ALL understanding’

When I was in my early 20’s, I accidentally started a fire in my kitchen. I ran to the couch where my son was sitting and started out the door. As I left, I cried out ‘Jesus’ IMMEDIATELY I felt a hand on my shoulder. It was far to heavy to be my little boy’s! An overwhelming peace came over me and when I turned around the fire was out! Cabinets and walls charred, but no fire!!!

The crazier thing is, when I was in a counseling session about 20 years later, we were doing EMDR from a traumatic childhood event. My parents had gotten into a terrible fight and my dad was choking my mom. I was only 8 and that memory haunted me. In this EMDR session, the counselor asked ‘Where was Jesus; if He says He will never leave us nor forsake us, where was He’ I figured HE would have came to comfort my brother and I or my mom, but He walked over and put His hand on my dads shoulder and he let go of my mom!

I had completely forgot about Him doing that to me in the fire until that moment in counseling!

Expand full comment

Wow, Kristi! The power of Jesus is awesome and amazing! I’m so sorry for what you went through but your testimony of Jesus’ presence is quite powerful and made my eyes leak.

The weight of His hands on mine was so odd at first I tried to discount it. But when He held my hands, well, there was no buts about what was happening. And that peace that flowed through me! It was like drinking hot cocoa after being outside in the freezing cold. I could feel it slowly run down my entire body. Amazing!

Thank you so much for sharing! I can’t tell you how much it means to me when others open up and share similar experiences.

New International Version

Psalm 91

1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High

will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]

2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,

my God, in whom I trust.”

3 Surely he will save you

from the fowler’s snare

and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his feathers,

and under his wings you will find refuge;

his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

5 You will not fear the terror of night,

nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,

nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,

ten thousand at your right hand,

but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes

and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”

and you make the Most High your dwelling,

10 no harm will overtake you,

no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you

to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands,

so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;

you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;

I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble,

I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life I will satisfy him

and show him my salvation.”

Hi Jo. I’m so proud of you ! Love Psalm 91. You Go 👧 Girl! When the Holy Spirit led me to memorize this chapter: I thought to myself; wow this is a long chapter. I praise and He helped me: and I started memorizing it verse by verse. I would practice one verse at a time and repeat it over and over. Then I would add another verse. I just continued to do that day by day and just kept repeating it over and add another verse. It took me about a month or so. So, don’t give up! You are hiding God’s Word in your heart and claiming His Promises! Hope this helps you to be an encouragement. Continue on and pray. Love Gladys

G Profitt. I memorized Psalm 91 ; two years ago before the Covid pandemic started; and I pray it every day also. Yes God’s protection on His chosen ones. Waiting for His Return. 🙏
