The Worst Mistake You Could Ever Make…

…is to think that the devil doesn’t exist! Don’t fall for the okey doke! DO NOT BE IGNORANT TO SATAN’S DEVICES! He is a master at what he does—kill, steal, and destroy! He is a liar! He is a deceptive manipulator. Wants you and I to believe he is not alive and working tirelessly to destroy our lives. Be vigilant, people! Wake up! Be smart about how you live and the choices that you make! The devil knows his end is doom…it is guaranteed that Satan and his demons will be thrown into the Lake of Fire…so, his best strategy is to take as many people with him as possible! Starting with getting us to believe the BIGGEST LIE—that he doesn’t exist!!!

I love you and want you to read this article below that is guiding my study time with God today. I’m about to pray and get into these scriptures!

Be blessed y’all and take a minute to read the article below…forward it to your family and friends, too! Aight?

You still have air in your lungs and there is a reason why. This may be your first and last warning to get your heart right.

If You Are Contemplating Suicide…

If you think your life is spiraling downhill, out of control, and you feel like you can’t go on, I want you to know that suicide is not the way out!!! I beg you not to do it! Your life is worth fighting for! And I am fighting for you right now—I am praying for you.

I want you to know that I’ve been there before. I felt like nothing. Felt extremely bad about where I was in life. Felt worthless. Felt ashamed. Guilty. And too embarrassed to tell someone how I was really feeling on the inside. I was down. And I mean all the way down. I was done! Had enough. And I felt like I couldn’t TAKE IT ANYMORE!

So, I left the house. Tears streaming down my face. Didn’t have the strength to look back at my husband and one-year old son before I closed the door.

Got in my car and just drove…

Ended up in a Target parking lot…

Called my best friend. Told him I couldn’t do this anymore…

Balling crying…Could barely breathe…I felt like a complete loser…didn’t even have the courage to explain to him my intentions that night…but I did.

Then he and his wife started to pray for me. And as they prayed, the tears came, came, and came…and they wouldn’t stop. I felt so weak. Could barely hear the words they were speaking to me. All I know is I couldn’t go through with it. The phone call ended. All I remember from that moment was them speaking life back into my spirit…through prayer.

Somehow, I made it home later that night. Cried myself to sleep. And somehow, I knew that I could make it…because I woke up the next morning.

Looking back, it was a dark period in my life. Over and over, I asked where was God? I could not feel His presence. Felt like He had abandoned me…left me. Why would God allow all these bad things to happen in my life if He cared for me like He said He did? I was mad. Angry. Frustrated. All that…

Yet, He kept me. Cared enough to use my best friends as vessels to pray me through…reminding me how much I am loved and cared for. The Lord heard and answered their prayers that night. And I am grateful. Grateful for God’s grace and mercy.

And today, as tears rush down my face as I type, I am praying for you. I want you to know that The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. I am telling you that God cares about you and your situation. Self-help books and stuff are good but nothing can compare to prayer and crying out to God for help. He hears and God cares. If He can save my life, God can save yours!

Let me go on to tell you about my homegirl. I met this beautiful woman of God at a prayer meeting. We instantly connected and decided to meet up later in the week for a bite to eat. Do you know that over dinner, she shared her story…told me about how she had almost lost her life as a child on several occasions and survived? Yet, as an adult she, too had a dark period in her life which led her to try to take her own life. BUT, God!

He allowed her to survive! The Lord saved her life AGAIN! You wanna why? ‘Cause there is purpose for her being here!

As she shared her testimony, I remember crying. Not ‘cause I could relate, but because I could not fathom the idea of her not being here. I knew the moment of us meeting that she was powerful. Smart.  Articulate and passionate. Anointed. I could not believe she also had a moment of despair…which could have ultimately cost her her life.

I am thankful to God that she is still here! I don’t know how rich my life would have been these past 9 months of being her friend. Man, she is like a sister to me. We talk every day. Pray all the time together. We spend hours and hours talking about life and how good God has been to us. We dream together about the future! I am excited for what God is doing in her life…she out here makin’ moves and I am extremely proud of her. So, why am I saying all of this?

I’ve been led the past two weeks to pray for you. Yes, you reading this. And if this is not your struggle, I am praying for someone who is connected to you who may be on the edge of giving up. I want you to know that God loves you so much. He sent His only son, Jesus, to die for you. Jesus came to proclaim good news to the poor, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. I want you to know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. I want you to know that no temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

God loves You so much! And so do I! If you need prayer or have any specific requests please reach out to me via the contact page above. I encourage you to trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths!

God is faithful!

LIVE my friend! YOUR LIFE IS VALUABLE! THE WORLD NEEDS YOU! God has a great plan for your life: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

The best is yet to come for you! I declare it in Jesus’ name! Put your hope and trust in the Lord!

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 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 8:37-39 (NIV)

***I dedicate this post to my best friends (J & M) for being there for me all these years–I am grateful for you. And to my homey, my ace, my sister, and warrior for Christ (A.P.) God Bless You…cheers to 7/11! Shout-outs to my husband who read this and asked, “Where my name at?” LOL

Insight to Why You Struggle with Fear, Anxiety, Defeat, and Feeling Tormented

Feeling anxious? Fearful about the future? Living in a constant state of defeat? Feeling like you are being tormented by something you can’t see?

Then, you gotta watch this video…cause the situation is deeper than you think. Its generational.

And Spiritual.

After listening to this teaching from minister Kevin, I have clarity and peace. This video changed my life…changed the way I see things.

I pray differently now. I am equipped with scriptures to pray against the spirit of fear, the spirit of anxiety, the spirit of defeat, and the tormenting spirits that worked day and night to discourage me…trying to break me…so that I would give up…ultimately, aborting my destiny…

I ask that you watch the video. I pray that the Lord will open your spiritual eyes to see, open your ears to ear, and open your heart to receive this life-changing message from the Holy Spirit delivered through this man of God. Have a blessed day! And remember that God is on your side. He loves you and so do I.

Peace, MrsMKauthor

I suggest watching the entire video, but if you are short on time today, begin the teaching at 49:00

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ. Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)

Time is Short! It’s Time to Wake Up People!

First of all, I want to give a shout-out to my baby boy for celebrating his first birthday the other day! Yayyyy! I can’t believe he is one already…wow!

Time went by fast…that is a story for another day (I intend to share more about my family in the future).

Anywho, I am freestyling today or should I say just writing as I feel the Holy Spirit lead me. Normally, when I post, I type-up what I want to share in advance. I sit on it for a couple days. Pray on it. Then post.

But today, I am writing and will post immediately. Now with that being said, I am led to share another video.

I listened to this video a couple of days ago and it is very relevant to current events and what is happening in America and throughout the world. As I was preparing to upload the video to my blog, another YouTube clip was recommended (in my feed) for me to watch…I clicked on it…watched for a couple of minutes…then realized the person was bashing Marcus Rogers (the author of the video in today’s post). The fellow bashed Marcus Rogers’ past and his teachings…called him a liar…a false prophet.

Now, for me I am not into Internet drama. So, it is important to note…

Everything I post, every video that I share on this blog—is spirit-led. I always consult God about what he wants me to post. To further my study, I always “fact-check” the speaker’s message by using the HOLY BIBLE (the only source of TRUTH) to establish credibility with the speaker. I suggest you do the same.

I implore you to search the scriptures (HOLY BIBLE) for yourself. Pray. And seek God for wisdom (knowledge, and understanding).

So, I want to share this video. It is the “part 3” to a previous post (about Obama/Trump/the 2020 Election, and other issues) from the same speaker Marcus Rogers. I watch a lot of his videos and am encouraged by his commitment to serve God.

Time is short! We all should be living as if today is our last day. Jesus Christ is Coming Back and He is coming soon. I pray we’ll all be ready!

Be Blessed Folks,

Signed, MrsMKauthor

P.S. I apologize if this post reads funny, but I told y’all in my bio that some post would read like a text message, ya dig? Don’t forget to read the scripture references below! Peace…

2 Timothy 3 (NIV)

3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. 6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7 always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. 9 But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone. 10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, sufferings—what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Matthew 24:36-44 (NIV)

The Day and Hour Unknown

36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left. 42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Will the Real Christians Stand Up?!

Joshua 24:14-15

There’s no time left for lukewarm believers—you got one foot in the church and one foot in the world!

I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. Revelations 3:15-16

It’s time to be holy! Set apart! Either ride with Christ or ride out!

You were born for such a time as this! It’s time to stand up! Time to be bold! Time to proclaim the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!

Warriors, it’s time to raise the blood-stained banner of Jesus Christ!

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

In the words of Jim Caviezel (Remember him? He played Jesus in The Passion of the Christ), “Set yourselves apart from this corrupt generation, my brothers and sisters! You weren’t made to fit in, you were born to stand out!”

Listen to Jim Caviezel’s powerful warning to us Christians in the 5-minute video clip (above) and check out some important scriptures concerning being lukewarm (below).

Important Scriptures to Consider:

1. Matthew 7:16-17 (NIV)

16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.

2. Titus 1:16  (NIV)

16 They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.

3. Matthew 7:20-25 (NIV)

20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them. 21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ 24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.

4. 2 Timothy 4:3-4 (NIV)

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.

5. 1 John 3:8-10 (NIV)

The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. 10 This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister.

6. 1 Corinthians 6:20 (NIV)

20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

7. Hebrews 10:26 (NIV)

26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left,

8. 1 John 2:15-17 (NIV)

15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

9. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (NIV)

Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

10. James 4:4 (NIV)

You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.

11. Matthew 23:25-28 (NIV)

25 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26 Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.

27 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. 28 In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.

12. Isaiah 29:13 (NIV)

13 The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth
    and honor me with their lips,
    but their hearts are far from me.
Their worship of me
    is based on merely human rules they have been taught.

13. Matthew 16:24 (NIV)

24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.
