What man FORGETS


Matthew 3:17

King James Version

17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, 

This is my beloved Son, 

in whom I am well pleased.

What is the state of the world today?

Does it make sense?

Does it make for peace?

Does it make for war?

Is it out of control?

Can its leaders be trusted?

Who can we really trust?

What can we really believe in?

Here's what I've come to know -- for sure.

Only because SPIRIT taught me all these.

The peaceful man is born again.

He cannot be frightened.

We know Who to believe in.

We know what to believe in.

We know Who the TRUE POWER is.

Matthew 28:18

King James Version

18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, 

All power is given unto me 

in heaven and in earth.

John 1:3

King James Version

3 All things were made by him; 

and without him was not any thing made 

that was made.

Colossians 1:16

King James Version

16 For by him were all things created, 

that are in heaven, 

and that are in earth, visible and invisible, 

whether they be thrones, or dominions,

 or principalities, or powers: 

all things were created by him, 

and for him:

JESUS exercised power over devils:

James 2:19

King James Version

19 Thou believest that there is one God; 

thou doest well: 

the devils also believe, and tremble.

Through His Resurrection, JESUS defeated death, and the devil:

Hebrews 2:14

King James Version

14 Forasmuch then as the children 

are partakers of flesh and blood, 

he also himself likewise took part of the same; 

that through death he might destroy him 

that had the power of death, 

that is, the devil;

Without JESUS, we can do nothing.

John 15:5

King James Version

5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: 

He that abideth in me, and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit: 

for without me ye can do nothing.

Through JESUS, we can do everything.

Matthew 19:26

King James Version

26 But Jesus beheld them, 

and said unto them, 

With men this is impossible; 

but with God all things are possible.

JESUS did so much more.

Much, of which we don't know about.

For the world could not contain it.

John 21:25

King James Version

25 And there are also many other things 

which Jesus did, 

the which, if they should be written every one, 

I suppose that even the world itself could not contain 

the books that should be written. 


JESUS is the ANSWER to ALL our ills.

He is the answer to all our pain.

He is the answer to all our fears.

He is the answer to all wrong thinking.

He is the answer to all our confusion.

He is the answer to all our suffering.

The world will never tell you what you need to know.

Everyone has a personal agenda.

There's only ONE we can trust.

In JESUS is truth.

John 1:17

King James Version

17 For the law was given by Moses, 

but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

John 14:6

King James Version

6 Jesus saith unto him, 

I am the way, the truth, and the life: 

no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Man forgets.

But the Bible doesn't.

GOD saw to that.

CONSIDER it a LOST cause


MOSES tells Israel:

Deuteronomy 7:7

King James Version

7 The Lord did not set his love upon you, 

nor choose you, 

because ye were more in number than any people; 

for ye were the fewest of all people:

The born again knows GOD's laws.

The born again respects GOD's laws.

The born again lives for GOD's laws.

Here are His laws which govern us all.

Hatred is a lost cause, as you shall see from this post:

When you know GOD's laws, you become respectful.

When He makes you born again, you become aware.

When you know the world for what it is, you become awake.

When you see how the world conducts itself, you know it is not of GOD.

When you see Israel being attacked on all fronts, you know she is so hated.

When you see people not caring, you know they don't believe in JESUS.

Every born again is made aware, through Scripture.

The WORD of GOD tells us everything we need to know.

The WORD of GOD tells us how to live.

The WORD of GOD tells us how to love.

The WORD of GOD tells us what to believe in.

The WORD of GOD tells us how to conduct ourselves.

All these, through JESUS.

Who lived what He taught.

Know this now:

Whatever happens to Israel, affects all of us.

GOD is precise:

Genesis 12:3

King James Version

3 And I will bless them that bless thee, 

and curse him that curseth thee: 

and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

How we treat Israel, boomerangs on all of us.

When we love Israel, we receive GOD's approval.

Simply because Israel is the "apple" of GOD's eye.

Zechariah 2:8

King James Version

8 For thus saith the Lord of hosts; 

After the glory hath he sent me 

unto the nations which spoiled you: 

for he that toucheth you 

toucheth the apple of his eye.

The sooner we accept that, the sooner there will be peace.

Israel is not perfect, but neither is any country.

Her people do not believe JESUS is the Messiah, but neither do many in the world.

Still, GOD chose her for His perfect purpose.

Isaiah 43:21

King James Version

21 This people have I formed for myself; 

they shall shew forth my praise.

Deuteronomy 14:2

King James Version

2 For thou art an holy people 

unto the Lord thy God, 

and the Lord hath chosen thee 

to be a peculiar people 

unto himself, 

above all the nations 

that are upon the earth.

1 Peter 2:9

King James Version

9 But ye are a chosen generation, 

a royal priesthood, 

an holy nation, 

a peculiar people; 

that ye should shew forth the praises 

of him who hath called you 

out of darkness 

into his marvellous light;

In the same manner GOD loves us all.

Both Jew, and non-Jew.

John 3:16-17

King James Version

16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son, 

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world 

to condemn the world; 

but that the world through 

him might be saved.

2 Peter 3:9

King James Version

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, 

as some men count slackness; 

but is longsuffering to us-ward, 

not willing that any should perish, 

but that all should come to repentance.

1 John 4:19

King James Version

19 We love him, 

because he first loved us.

Many hate Jews because they killed CHRIST.

People's hatred for Jews cannot go on an on.

Consider it a lost cause.

All these efforts to destroy GOD's holy nation.

All these efforts to discredit her.

All these efforts to leave her to fend for herself.

Who are we to question GOD's ways?

Who are we to question GOD's word?

Who are we to question GOD's will?

Who are we to question GOD's plan?

When the truth of the matter is, GOD's will be done.

Isaiah 14:27

King James Version

27 For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, 

and who shall disannul it? 

and his hand is stretched out, 

and who shall turn it back?

The target has always been Jerusalem -- Israel's capital.

All efforts to destroy her will be futile.

It's all been prophesied.

Zechariah 12:8-9

King James Version

8 In that day shall the Lord defend 

the inhabitants of Jerusalem; 

and he that is feeble among them at that day 

shall be as David; 

and the house of David shall be as God, 

as the angel of the Lord before them.

9 And it shall come to pass in that day, 

that I will seek to destroy all the nations 

that come against Jerusalem.

Israel may ignore these teachings.

The world may ignore these teachings.

But SPIRIT reminds us all.

Israel may continue to sin.

The world may continue to sin.

But SPIRIT corrects us all.

Israel may be asleep.

The world may be asleep.

But SPIRIT wakes us all.

JESUS spoke of SPIRIT's function:

John 14:26

King James Version

26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, 

whom the Father will send in my name, 

he shall teach you all things, 

and bring all things to your remembrance, 

whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 16:8-12

King James Version

8 And when he is come, 

he will reprove the world of sin, 

and of righteousness, 

and of judgment:

9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;

10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, 

and ye see me no more;

11 Of judgment, 

because the prince of this world 

is judged.

John 16:13-15

King James Version

13 Howbeit when he, 

the Spirit of truth, is come, 

he will guide you into all truth: 

for he shall not speak of himself; 

but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: 

and he will shew you things to come.

14 He shall glorify me: 

for he shall receive of mine, 

and shall shew it unto you.

15 All things that the Father hath are mine: 

herefore said I, that he shall take of mine, 

and shall shew it unto you.

JESUS gifted us with His SPIRIT.

That we may remember.

That we may repent.

That we may love.

Why do we resist so?

Let's not be jealous.

Let's not be greedy.

Let's not be vindictive.

Let's not be proud.

Let's not be blind.

Let's not be deaf.

Let's not be indifferent.

Let's love, as GOD does.

He gave us JESUS.

That believers may be saved.

In JESUS is our salvation.

In JESUS is our hope.

In JESUS is eternal life.

Let's love all that GOD loves.

That's a good starting point.

Come to know the Bible now.

That your thoughts may be filled with light.

For we are all in darkness.

JESUS said:

Matthew 5:6

King James Version

6 Blessed are they which do 

hunger and thirst after righteousness: 

for they shall be filled.

If there's something we remember, it's how we all started working.

What changed our life.

What got us in the right path.

What gave us peace, love, and joy.

What gave us true knowledge.

What gave us real work.

And for no pay.

I remember mine.

The day GOD made me born again.

And opened Scripture to me.

Letting His SPIRIT teach me easily.

To this day -- four years after -- I remark at how easy it all was.

Maybe because I was in need of truth.

And truly hungered for it.

Plus, I was always childlike with GOD.

I'd speak to Him, as a daughter would.

With no fear, but only a great desire to learn.

And to know His truth.

And yet, I always take great care I understood precisely.

And gave the reverence due GOD.

But here's how it all began.

Starting with these THREE sets of verses.

Which SPIRIT led me to, along the way.

Ringing a bell loudly in my heart:

John 3:30-35

King James Version

30 He must increase, 

but I must decrease.

Mark 10:18

King James Version

18 And Jesus said unto him, 

Why callest thou me good? 

there is none good but one, that is, God.

Matthew 23:8-12

King James Version

8 But be not ye called Rabbi: 

for one is your Master, even Christ; 

and all ye are brethren.

9 And call no man your father upon the earth: 

for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

10 Neither be ye called masters: 

for one is your Master, even Christ.

11 But he that is greatest among you 

shall be your servant.

12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; 

and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

These verses were EXACTLY what I needed to know.

And GOD gave it early on.

Serving as foundation for the work He wanted me to do.

Zeroing in on GOD's truth -- which the world hides from you.

Just three sets of powerful, revealing verses.

And GOD gave them to this persistent child.

After that, all came easily.

Judging by the volume of blogs SPIRIT and I wrote.

And 91 blogs were born, as of this writing.

I couldn't stop.

And wouldn't want to.

We need to get GOD's WORD out to you.

For these are urgent times.

We need SPIRIT


1 John 4:1

King James Version

4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, 

but try the spirits whether they are of God: 

because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

What is truth?

Is there such a thing as ULTIMATE truth?

How do you find it?

Where do you look for it?

Are you really looking for it?

Well, I did, and have -- for the longest time.

Through my own steam, I searched for it.

Read tons of books.

Listened to so-called gurus.

Eyes and ears always attuned.

For something that spelled truth.

Or at least, felt like it.

And yet, a "piece" remained missing.

Something remained elusive.

Why couldn't I latch on to it?

Why was it being kept from me?

Was I going about it the right way?

What was I doing wrong?

I used my steam, till I ran out of steam.

Not realizing I couldn't do it on my own.

And that's when I sat still.

Reviewing my life thus far.

And started to look into my sins.

Aghast at the gravity of it.

Ashamed at my own ignorance.

And supreme blindness.

Choosing to sin no more.

Asking GOD for clarity.

GOD took pity upon my penitent heart.

Five months after, He made me born again.

After that, ALL became clear in September 2019.

And here's what I found --

We need GOD's SPIRIT:

1 Corinthians 2:9-14

King James Version

9 But as it is written, 

Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, 

neither have entered into the heart of man, 

the things which God hath prepared 

for them that love him.

10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: 

for the Spirit searcheth all things, 

yea, the deep things of God.

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, 

save the spirit of man which is in him? 

even so the things of God knoweth no man, 

but the Spirit of God.

12 Now we have received, 

not the spirit of the world, 

but the spirit which is of God; 

that we might know the things 

that are freely given to us of God.

13 Which things also we speak, 

not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, 

but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; 

comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man receiveth not 

the things of the Spirit of God: 

for they are foolishness unto him: 

neither can he know them, 

because they are spiritually discerned.

I found that because SPIRIT wanted me to find it.

He wanted me to know His truth.

GOD is truly merciful.

He let me use my own steam, till I ran out of it.

Upon my surrender, He took over.

But He gave me a chance to find out for myself first.

Such is GOD's LOVE for us.

As born again, I've also observed something.

Many pastors are puzzled why people don't understand Scripture.

Many pastors wonder why people continue to sin.

Many pastors seem lost for answers themselves.

As I listen to their sermons, I keep waiting for them to acknowledge SPIRIT.

Few acknowledge the role of SPIRIT in correcting this troubled world.

Only through SPIRIT, can we know GOD's truth.

Only through SPIRIT can we understand JESUS.

Only through SPIRIT, can we understand Scripture.

Only through SPIRIT, can we understand what being born again means.

How do I know?

JESUS tells us Himself.

For He prayed for that very SPIRIT to live in us.

Making sure we were not orphaned when He was taken up to heaven.

John 14:16-17 

King James Version

16 And I will pray the Father, 

and he shall give you another Comforter, 

that he may abide with you for ever;

17 Even the Spirit of truth; 

whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, 

neither knoweth him: but ye know him; 

for he dwelleth with you, 

and shall be in you.

John 14:26 

King James Version

26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, 

whom the Father will send in my name, 

he shall teach you all things, 

and bring all things to your remembrance, 

whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 15:26 

King James Version

26 But when the Comforter is come, 

whom I will send unto you from the Father, 

even the Spirit of truth, 

which proceedeth from the Father, 

he shall testify of me:

Never again will you be lost.

Never again will you be confused.

Never again will you be manipulated.

You have the SPIRIT of GOD to guide you.
