Ha! Charity nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award so I could answer my own questions 😂😂
That doesn’t happen everyday! Thanks sis! You Rock 👊
Ok, so here are the guidelines:
- Ask the nominees 11 new questions.
So here goes me answering my own questions 😂😂
1. We all have goals in life but what is the one true desire you have for your life?
Some of the goals I had set for my life came true. The main one being to become a dad and be a good father…well, the best one can be anyway.
But now my biggest desire is to be with the love of my life, Angie, until one of us is called home. As, I said this is my desire not necessarily God’s will. We may have been allowed to come into each other’s life to show the other unconditional love, understanding and compassion and not be together the way we would like.
2. Are you of the belief that children under a certain age will be Heaven? Why or why not?
I have heard many stories from those who have died and come back to life saying hey have seen heaven….
One was that whatever age a person died was the age they were in heaven.
One was that there were no children in heaven only “adults”.
One was that everyone was 33, the same age as Jesus when He died.
I am of the belief that yes children go to heaven. I would dare guess the age of accountability for children though. The age of knowing the difference between right and wrong varies from child to child especially those with handicaps/illness.
But Jesus himself said to not suffer the little children to come to him as heaven is made up of such as these. And just with those words alone I know children will be in heaven.
I just can not say for certain if a child between the ages of say 5 and 17, knowing the difference between right and wrong, will go to heaven unless they have accepted Christ.
Will all those babies that have been aborted or the child killed by the parent’s hand be there? I can only hope and pray.
3. What is your goto Bible verse you when struggles abound?
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16 KJV
4. Do you feel a revival coming, not to the US but to other parts of the world?
I see that one is blooming in China but it’s a cult. I’m not 100 percent sure on the one in the Muslim countries either. I will just have to wait and see on that one. But the one in China IS a false doctrine!
I honestly do feel the Lord will reap a harvest of new souls being aligned with the Way, the Truth, and the Life but it will not be designated to just one region. It will be all over. I feel it will start in Switzerland and spread.
No, God hasn’t spoken to me about it…just a hunch.
6. Are you a front row pew sitter or a back row sitter?
When I was a teenager I sat in the back so I could flirt with the girls and hold their hands without adults saying oh no you’ll get pregnant doing that. Oh please 🙄
But as an adult I sit closer to the front of the church say that I don’t fall asleep and to hear better!
7. Why is it that Jesus got totally ticked off with the money changer, made a whip, overturned tables and ran everyone out, but yet was quiet with Caesar and on his way to Golgatha?
This was actually a topic at work one day, hence the reason for the question in the first place. One of the guys said Jesus never got mad and then I share the story of the moneychanger.
I love our biblical discussions at work 😊
It wasn’t the fact that the moneychangers were trying to make a living it was where they chose to set up shop that got under Jesus’ skin.
Here’s the scripture reference:
And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;
And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.
John 2:14-16 KJV
It was the fact they set up shop in the Lord’s house. In modern day times it would be like the pastor selling girls for sex trafficking.
The church is not meant as a free for all where money is exchanged for goods but rather a place of worship. That’s what ticked Jesus off. And it was a Holy anger not the you pee’d in my Cheerios type of anger. So no, there was no sin in his righteous anger over the situation.
The Caesar situation was totally different. Jesus was fulfilling prophecy…
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
Isaiah 53:7 KJV
Jesus knew what was coming and since He is the Word incarnate He knew what was written about this event.
Here a song for ya by one of my fav bands from Switzerland…
To whom will God reveal His saving power?
It was the will of the Lord that His servant
Should grow like a plant, taking root in dry ground
He wasn’t attractive and nothing would draw us to Him
We ignored Him that He was nothing
Our sorrows, that weighed Him down
And we thought His troubles
Were a punishment from God
But He was wounded and beaten for our sins
He was chastised that we might have peace
He was lashed, and we were healed
Who strayed away like sheep without Shepard
We who left God’s path to follow our own
God laid on Him guilt and sins of everyone of us
He was brought as a lamb to the slaughter
But He opened not His mouth
He’s the servant who is love
He’s the servant who set us free
He is the suffering servant, the Son of God
I will not be tagging or gifting this award out this time as it is a special request from Charity to answer my own questions. So, with that said if anyone would like to answer these questions consider yourself a recipient of The Sunshine Blogger Award 😊
Have a great weekend everyone!
