A Prayer Life Can be compared to a Balloon! By Lanie Davvy

james robersonA balloon is an inflatable   object fueled by air.   You knew that?   lol   If the air leaks out; the balloon loses it’s worth so to speak.  Our prayer lives are fueled by our communing with God and without that occurrence; we are literally close to an impasse.  Simple right?   So, why won’t anyone take God at His word? Prayer changes things.  Ask anyone who has prayed and they will tell you.  The Bible tells us to pray without ceasing.  It tells us to always pray.

There used to be a survey that said that 90% of Americans believe in the power of prayer.   So, I think a lot of people who think prayer warriors or intercessors are nuts or fanatics; but are they wise?   That answer would be yes.   You see, we face a constant attack from the enemy of our souls who will do anything to kill us, steal from us, destroy us, stop us, hinder us, bring bad news and the like.  He never stops, so we never stops.  Take for instance an NBA challenge.  What if one team ran and played hard and the other team did the minimum?   Who would win?   You tell me.   The prayer life is like a balloon,  because without air being added to it, that balloon is flat and without life and a flat prayer life will haunt a person rather quickly.  With the air, it can float, travel, create an atmosphere, bring a sense of decorum, it can do a lot more than when it’s in flat pancake mode.

A prayer life without the activity of communing with God is dead has no ability to do what it was designed to do; that is to bring the power, peace, Wisdom, solution and Divine purpose of God on the scene.   Keep that air in that Balloon that represents your Prayer life.  Jesus prayed as much as po

Luke 6:12 12 One of those days Jesus went out to a mountainside to pray, and spent the night praying to God.

The One Thing About Christmas That Makes The Devil Mad! by E. Davenport

There is no other faith that talks about a Savior with a Virgin birth.  It is not only unparalleled; but it’s safe to say that people from other faiths don’t believe it.    So, the question is WHY?   Why would anyone be overly concerned about Mary being a Virgin and giving birth to Jesus?  Well, that’s easy enough; it never happens.  I explain it easily.  It was a one time only life altering event.  If the father of Jesus was a human and we already know that his mother was human; then how could he be the Son of God?   If Jesus was 100% human, then he could easily be the prophet that the Muslim faith and The Jehovah Witness faith says that he is.  The Virgin birth is the key to Jesus being the Son of God.  That would make the devil mad; because it reminds him that we know that we have Eternal Life through Jesus Christ and that the Bible is truth.

The devil has fought tooth and nail to get people to dismiss the idea of God.  Ask any Atheist.  Well, that isn’t a fair statement or a courteous one since I doubt that an atheist would be open to the idea that “anti” God thoughts were actually suggestions from demonic beings.   The average Atheist is  a White male,  around thirty-four years of age, 43% of this group holds a college degree; a slightly higher percentage than the general population.  Do not be surprised that some 8% of Atheists actually believe in God or a universal spirit.  I could go on but there is nothing significant about them as a group.  There are schools of thoughts that say that “most” atheists consider themselves a religion.   To know much more than conventional wisdom; I’d have to be willing to go undercover to see what I could pick up.  That’s not gonna happen.

So  when Christmas rolls around, everybody comes out of the closet.   I’ve met Muslims who celebrate Christmas and  I have spoken to people in other Groups who are softened to the commercial side of Christmas; silently consenting to it all;  in a way.  The Christian faith is the target of many dissenting beliefs and these other belief systems truly understand how strong the tenets of the Christian faith is.  The focus of Christians on the birth of Christ or the foundational tenets of the faith is a frustrating thing for anything or anyone that wants to draw people away from their core beliefs (Christians) .  You see, when the Miracle Season comes in; the supernatural kicks in and people get a re-boot so to speak, and this really ticks the devil off!    Too bad.

Isaiah 9: 6

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

John 3: 16

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

Isaiah 7: 14

“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.

Luke 2 : 13-14

And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

Is Donald Trump Saved? December 11, 2016

Being a Blogger for nearly ten years has given me the freedom to candidly reflect the landscape in my sphere.  Let me start this by saying that I believe in God and in His plan.  My total and complete Trust is in God regarding the course of this nation.  I am an intercessor, I pray for so many people.  I have probably covered thousands of people that I do not know.  I do not hate on people; I am required to love them; no matter what they have done or said.    I have been “tested” greatly in this area.

Now, let’s talk about the president.  Donald Trump was really a likeable guy on the Celebrity Apprentice and well received in our household.  His “beef” with Rosie O’Donnell  got our attention and made us laugh at first;  then it soon became troubling.  There would be many layers to  “The Donald” soon to be revealed.  Ultimately, Donald decided to run for President and this writer pretty much stays away from politics except as an observer.  Mr. Trump quickly aligned himself with different coalitions that were not mainstream and ultimately The Christian Coalition.  These leaders began to say that he was God’s choice; but so many wondered:   “Really?”  But, is he born again?  You see, the strong rumor in Christian die-hard camps; was that he was God’s choice.  Most people that I knew,  said: “God would definitely have to confirm that.”    Still, people were in limbo or so they said or thought.

Amongst growing frustration that he was the Republican front runner amongst many people who just “couldn’t” see themselves voting for him, there came again a strong rumor:  “Paula White and James Robinson ministered Salvation to him and one of them was teaching Bible classes to him.”   Would that rumor be enough to squash people’s doubts?  Yes and No.  Many  (unlikely) Born again believers  ended up voting for  Donald Trump in the recent election.    They just didn’t tell anyone.   Many of them are wondering if they did the right thing; others don’t care because they learned long ago not to put their stock in the people who are man’s leaders as the be all end all.   So, now people are looking for a sign most likely.   Some people believe in his ability to do the job, others are hopeful; and still others are on the fence.

We have really good friends who quite vehemently and vocally supported our newest President.   I wasn’t drawn into the hatred, the contempt and the candidate overlooking the questions in my heart.   I wasn’t drawn into the  warm and fuzzy moments either.  Elections always make me uncomfortable.  I trust God a whole lot more than I trust anyone; including myself.    If I’m being honest; I care more about the souls of our leaders and I hope that we will all pray for them so we can do the first Timothy two thing; that our lives will be peaceable and quiet.  And it’s a good thing that passage is in the bible spelling out God’s intent.  Unlike many so called “Christians” who ignored the instruction to pray for “certain” presidents because they allowed their flesh and the “rumor mill; to get in the way; I believe all of the Bible; not just what “fits” my fancy at the time.   I admit that the demonic realm gets in when any of us leans to the negative side of things and coaxes us on.   I’ve seen it.   Do I think the new president is saved?  (It depends on who answers.)  What will it look like? (Who knows?)

I just think that the Salvation issue is critical for every single person and especially the president, because I do not wish to see anyone not receive eternal life because hell is real.   I believe that he (Donald Trump) was saved and received Christ.   I believe the best  of people who said that he was.  That is good news.  I am going to pray for a fire on the inside of him that he can’t contain.  I am going to pray that he hears God so clearly; it spooks him out.  I am going to pray for justice in the land and in the world; and finally, I am going to pray out God’s perfect will…and no, I do not know what it is.  The Holy Spirit does; and I feel real good about that!      Only Donald Trump and God know if he’s saved; ……and neither one is talking about it.  That said, being born again;  comes with no guarantees so I hope that no person will put their “stock” in a person instead of God; I won’t and if anyone does, it falls under the category of “your business.”  However, I am not naive enough to believe that will affect his politics for the common man; and so I simply stay close to God like I’ve always done.  Many of the “accurate” prophets have had a lot to say as well; very interesting too.  My spin was just a sidebar.  God cares about people not going to hell.  Yes, hell is real; but that’s another article another time.

The real question is :  Are you saved?  Most people think that this decision is one that they can put off; but for some reason, God put it in front of you right this very minute.  .   What I am about to say is between you and God and no one else.  We each must come to the reality that we are all sinners.  Even a lie is a sin.   And yes, good people sin too.  You need to know that we serve a LOving God who forgives sin; just as though it never happens.   All we have to do is tell Him that we are sorry.  Then, after you do this; I want to ask you to forgive yourself.  Sometimes, that is really hard for us as individuals.    We also want to change our minds and our hearts about old ways that lead to sin, whether they are actions, habits or thoughts; we can ask God to remove them.  He will.  Next, I want you to find a church that baptizes you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.   The bible tells us in Matthew “Go Ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost…” God wants us to love and to forgive; to take on His character.   Jesus died on the cross for you and I so that we would not have to pay the price for our sinful nature.  He was hung on a cross, he was put in a grave on the 3rd day he arose from the dead and he now sits at the right hand of the Father interceding in prayer for us.  If you believe this; ask Jesus to come into your heart and to be the master of your life.  He wants to give us the Holy Spirit to help and guide us.  I want to encourage you to stay connected with God.  He is as real as anything or anyone that you have ever known.  You will come to find that out.  You will begin to take on a new peace inside and some foggy things will soon become clear.  Be confident, a turnaround is coming soon.  Get ahold of a bible.  There is an area in the back called a Concordance.  It chronicles certain subjects.  Look up some scriptures on faith and salvation.  Read the New Testament or testimony.  It will bless you.    Finally, if you need anything ask God, ask Jesus.  The answers will come, I assure you.

10 Power Scriptures on Salvation by E. Davenport, December 11, 2016

Salvation is not for sale.   It’s a free gift that God gives.  No man can give it to you and you cannot earn it by being good.  It’s not just for church members.  It is for everyone who will accept Jesus as the Lord and Master of their life; acknowledging that He is the Son of God, who gave his life for us and died for our sins, rose again and lives to forever intercede for us at the right hand of the Father.  Oh, if you can grab ahold of this…you will break loose of anything holding you back.    Wow!
1. for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.  Romans 3: 23
2. Romans 3:10 NKJV  – As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one;
3. Romans 5:12  Consider this: sin entered our world through one man, Adam; and through sin, death followed in hot pursuit. Death spread rapidly to infect all people on the earth as they engaged in sin.
4. For the wages of sin [is] death, but the gift of God [is] eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
5. Romans 5:8 NKJV  – But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

6. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, Romans 8: 38

7. 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8: 39 

 8. Romans 10:9-10 NKJV  – that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation

 9. Romans 10:13 NKJV  – For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”
 10. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.  Acts 2: 21

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.  Mark 16: 16

Selah.  Pause…and think about it.
