Greetings Christian Bloggers. Below is a detailed list of some of the updates to the ChristianBlog.Com website over the course of 2016.

Living In Eternity

Matthew 6:10 -"Thy kingdom come, thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." What world is more real to us? Is it this present world or the eternal? When we are more aware of the ultimate eternal life with God, when the temporal world no longer makes much difference, there is a freedom that comes in our spirit " because this place is not our home. We are journeying through this life knowing that our home is that which is not made by hands but by God in the Heavens. The truth is that we can now live out of the PLACE OF ETERNITY. ETERNAL LIFE is also a way of life. We live from this quality of life that Jesus opened the way for us to experience. Paul tells us to focus on the eternal, not the temporal. In this, we free our minds from the cares of this life. The ETERNAL...
Supercharging Our Spiritual Growth
Albert Finch

We let the Lord take our heart through a process. Just as Peter had to go through a series of events to be ready to be used in an extraordinary way, we realize that God has a process for all of us. What the Lord worked in Peter was a new identity, a dependency upon the Lord so that he would not trust in His own strength. We learn to lean on the strength of God, not taking things into your own hands. WE WALK IN DISCERNMENT BEING AN INFLUENCE FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD Philippians 1:9-11 - "And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory...

Ephesians 1: 9,10 - "Having made known unto us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He hath purposed in Himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times He might GATHER TOGETHER IN ONE ALL THINGS IN CHRIST, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him." THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE OF GOD IS THAT ALL THINGS WILL BE SUMMED UP IN HIS SON. Observation: IF I DO NOT KEEP THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE OF GOD AS THE FOCUS OF MY LIFE, AND ASSURE THAT ALL I DO IS FOUNDED IN JESUS I WILL BE CONTINUALLY DISTRACTED FROM THE RIVER OF LIFE. John 6:63 -"It is the spirit that quickeneth (or makes alive) ; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." Jesus described the words that He spoke as...
God S Armies Are Poised; Will Our Prayers Assist Them?
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
When I enquired of the Holy Spirit regarding that which he wished me to blog tonight he spoke clearly the above words, 'Draw your swords.' These words follow on from the revelation that was revealed to me the previous night that God is sending out his Battalions into the strategic placers on earth. God is aligning his armies ready for the next heavenly push on earth. Such a move from God entails that we to must be ready to join this outpouring of Gods army spirit and this word that came to me this morning confirms the Lords word. I picture in my spirit the armies of God standing in battle formation awaiting the next move. As I was pondering this move of God and seeking his further message he reminded me of Daniel who in chapter nine, when he discovered Gods word in Jeremiah that...
Testing Our Love For Others

As the Lord taught in the Parable of the Sower, many will depart when testing comes. Many depart from Church, and many are now even departing from pursuing theirCALLINGin Christ when the tests come. You can never pass a test by quitting. 1 Peter 1:7 AMP - "So that the genuinenes of your faith may be tested, your faith which is infinitely more precious than the perishable gold which is tested and purified by fire... .." OUR CONNECTION TO GOD AND ONE ANOTHER The Cross is a vertical post that represents our connection to God and a horizontal one that represents our connection to one another. One thing that taking up our cross means is that we must have both of these in our lives. Of course, our connection to God eclipses the importance of our connection to one another and must...
Empty Fellowship Of Believers
Romade King
published . 2 min read
If fellowship needs commitment, some things are missing out; things such as hunger, objective, purpose and the reality of Jesus' presence and direct involvement "so empty. It could be a lot of things but if you don't sort that out then anything you do together will not celebrate God's reality but try to be a substitute for it. Substituting divine worship in Spirit and Truth with Worship service in refined music and soul trilling songs; and Spirit Life revival for revival of religious services has not please the purpose of fellowship in the Kingdom of Jesus. They simply point to only one thing which is the absence of the reality of the Kingdom of God or directly speaking that the fellowship isn't in the realm prepared for those that would live forever. Actually, it...
Higher Than That
Paul Phillips

As if all of creation is following the calendar hanging on the wall, the temperatures are dropping to suit the season. The north wind already blusters, tugging on the leaves of the trees in my yard, urging them to fly. Soon. Soon, they'll fly. I sat on the porch with a warm cup of coffee a few moments past and wondered why the melancholy mood seems to be descending like a cloud. It does every year now, when the seasons make the turn toward colder temperatures and bare limbs on trees. It hasn't always been so. I listen absent-mindedly to the wind chimes at the northern backside of the house and then to the ones beside me on the southern porch as they take their turn to spin and shimmy in the chilly breeze. The progression of the blowing wind reminds me that the years have come and...

Genesis 1:2 - "And the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." If the Holy Spirit can make a glorious creation out of the most desolate place, He can bring forth a glorious new creation out of the most desolate, confused, and empty life. 1 Corinthians 1:2 - "To all who are called to be God's holy people, who belong to Him in union with Jesus Christ, together with all people everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours." Affirmations: I REALIZE THAT I AM GOD'S CHILD AND HAVE THE POWER OF ATTORNEY TO USE THE NAME OF JESUS AND HAVE EVERYTHING THE WORD SAYS I CAN HAVE. I HAVE CONFIDENCE BECAUSE I KNOW THAT I'M NOT SPEAKING MY OWN...
God Is Aligning His Forces For An End Time Assault
John Knox+
published . 2 min read
For those with ears to hear and eyes to see concerning the moves of God there is no doubt that God is arranging his forces big time. Never before have we seen or heard of this massive re arrangement by the Lord of Hosts. There have been numerous proclamations from Gods anointed ones that we are entering into a season of warfare and worship. This season has been called various titles such as: Consecration, Revival, Preparation, Transition and so on, but they all point to the end time's preparation. Like a General the Lord of Hosts is strategically placing his battalions into key areas. This was revealed to me the other day when the Lord directed me to the first eight verses in Zechariah 6. In these verses the Lord has released his four battalions of chariots north, south and west, with...
The Garage Sale
K Reynolds+

This morning, while attending a women's group at my church, one woman shared this story: Earlier this summer she had cleaned out her cupboards and closets and she decided to have a garage sale before the summer was over. As the time drew near, she simply did not feel like going through the time and trouble but felt impressed to do so any way. The weather did not cooperate, the customers were few and in fact, she ended up closing down sooner than she had expected. She would take the items to a local charity and be done with it. That should have settled the matter once and for all but it didn't. She could not get rid of the sense that she had to have a garage sale. Why? She had already followed the prompt to do the sale and things had not gone well. It has been a rather gloomy and...
Partnering With Him

"For we are HIS workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." - Ephesians 2:10 Whether or not you feel you are fulfilling your destiny, you are being prepared by the King of kings for His good purposes. You were chosen by God and have been given a divineDESTINYin eternities past. Why? The Lord isCALLINGyou to partner with Him to shape the future of the Kingdom of God (see2 Corinthians 6:1,2: "And working together with Him... ... now is the acceptable time.")!This seems almost too marvelous to be true, but it is the Word of God. What does it mean to be "HIS workmanship"? The Greek term translated workmanship is"poiema",from which we derive the English word poem. Indeed, we are...

1 Timothy 2:1 - "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men." We can bear the burdens of others and we are the go-between for them before God. We identify with the weak, helpless, fear-filled, unborn, sick, poverty stricken, homeless, hungry, depressed, and spiritually destitute. We ask on their behalf, in faith, believing. Then, as the Father gives direction, we GO and minister to them and His power becomes available to set them free. AFFIRMATION: I inwardly ask for the joy of the Lord and a deeper awareness of His presence to rise up within every person I meet. 1 Corinthians 15:34 - "Awake to righteousness, and sin not: for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame."...
A New Mantle

2 Kings 2:8,9,13,14 - Now Elijah took his mantle, rolled it up, and struck the water; and it was divided this way and that, so that the two of them crossed over on dry ground. And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, "Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you? Elisha said, "Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me."... ... ..He also took up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and went back and stood by the bank of the Jordan. Then he took the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and struck the water, and said, "Where is the Lord God of Elijah?" And when he also had struck the water, it was divided this way and that; and Elisha crossed over. The word "mantle" means, "That...
Repentance Into A New Direction

2 Corinthians 3:16-18 -- "Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord." To repent means to "turn around and go in the opposite direction, change our minds, purposes, and what motivates our thought life." Repentance enables us to walk in a new direction. Our lives are totally changed when we repent of our bad thinking. When our mind is renewed with the word of life we are transformed from glory to glory into His image. Repentance creates a passionate desire for intimacy with God. As we repent...
Transcending Our Talent

A few Saturday's ago my mom and I took a trip to a little gift shop in our town, my husband gave me a $40-dollar gift certificate for Christmas last year and I figured I better use it before Christmas was here again. I wasn't sure what I wanted, but I figured I know it when I saw it. As I was walking around I found a wall hanging with a quote I had never heard before, by a lady I'd never heard of either. Her name is Erma Bombeck. I looked her up and although she wasn't a lady who necessarily dedicated her life to ministry, her quote ministered to me, “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'.” . (Bombeck, 2016) My first thought when reading...
