The Case for Marriage

Feb 28, 2011   //   by admin   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on The Case for Marriage

Today I read an article titled “The Case That Changed Obama’s Mind on Defense of Marriage Act”. It saddens and sickens me as I observe our president make rash decisions compromising and reversing moral standards across our nation.

Noah Webster’s 1828 online Dictionary:

MAR’RIAGE, n. [L.mas, maris.] The act of uniting a man and woman for life; wedlock; the legal union of a man and woman for life. Marriage is a contract both civil and religious, by which the parties engage to live together in mutual affection and fidelity, till death shall separate them. Marriage was instituted by God himself for the purpose of preventing the promiscuous intercourse of the sexes, for promoting domestic felicity,and for securing the maintenance and education of children.

Genesis 1:20-28 – God created every creature after its kind to reproduce of it’s own kind. Likewise with mankind God instructed them to prosper, reproduce and take charge of creation. How could this have occurred naturally if the two were of the same sex? Let’s apply reasonableness not argument. When have we seen any species of the same sex reproduce itself? The reproductive system is not designed to support this. Why then are we constantly approached with this burning need to validate same-sex attractions, unions, marriages, etc?

Romans 1:24-31 – Lust of the heart has been mistaken for LOVE. TRUTH has been exchanged for a lie and God the creator is being told by his creation that He made a mistake and didn’t mean what He said the first time.

Without A Trace Ministries takes this stand. Same-Sex attractions and unions is not the way God intended for a man or woman to live. We are here to provide support and love to anyone who realizes that they are in a relationship emptied of God and emptied of Love. If you don’t know where to start or who to call, You can call us and be really and unquestionably FREE!

We KNOW because we’ve been there.

John 8:36 (Amplified Bible)
“So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably Free.” Without A Trace……

Position Yourself for The Outpouring

Feb 23, 2011   //   by admin   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Position Yourself for The Outpouring

At the start of the new year, 2011, the Holy Spirit began to impressed upon me that there is going to be an overwhelming outpouring in March 2011.

All of those who are walking in righteousness [in right standing with God] will receive an outpouring from heaven as overwhelming as the snowstorm that covered most of Georgia in Janaury 2011. On the contrary, those who have been living unrighteously will receive an outpouring as well but it shall be of God’s wrath. I must say only what he is telling me.

Today, our departmental team at work was called into a meeting and told that our performance reviews for 2011 was going to be reset to the month of March. All merit increases will be applied based upon the performance completed and judged in the year 2010. I was so blessed because I heard the Holy Spirit say that the seeds of righteousness and obedience that were sown in 2010 will produce an uncommon increase in March 2011. Even those who God was saying “Needs Improvement” are eligible for this increase. They must repent and walk in obedience by March. This ties into the vision that the Lord gave me. Oh Righteous Brothers and Sisters Hold on to your faith and hear the Word of the Lord! God is bringing His Harvest to you and me in MARCH!

Grace and Peace be to you from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ!

The State of Emergency

Feb 23, 2011   //   by admin   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on The State of Emergency

January 10, 2011, Georgia was under a State of Emergency due to a winter blast that shut the city of Atlanta down for nearly a week.

Praise be to God, our family was prepared because I was lead by God to go to the grocery four days prior to the snowstorm. Our family lived as if we were shut in at a snow resort. It was the best time of our lives. However, we noticed people on the news that would not heed to the warnings of the state of emergency issued by the governor of the state. Many even got on the news bragging about how they were driven to take a chance on the snow and ice in order to get out of the house. “We couldn’t tkae another day cooped up in the house with each other”, stated a mother stated with a big grin for the camera.

Each day during the snowstorm, our daughter would pray and ask God for one more day to be “a family again”. It pricked my heart to hear her earnest prayer and watch the snow continue coming down. The LORD heard her prayer and so did we. We ensured that we had family devotion and dedicated plenty of time to fun and relaxation by building a fire, roasting marshmallows, making a snow girl and snow angels. We even had a neighborhood snowball fight.

We are in a state of emergency when families are willing to risk their lives and the lives of others in order to get away from spending time with one another for an extended period of time. God provided a Divine Slowdown not just in Georgia but across the country to provide families with the gift of time; Time to regroup, regenerate and reconnect. Unfortunately many families missed it. Look at what the bible says about families.

Psalm 127:3-4 (NIV) 3 Children are a heritage from the LORD,
offspring a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.

Proverbs 5:16-19 (King James Version) 18Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
19Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.

Please take time to appreciate your family rather than try to avoid your family. If you were one of those people who could not stand to be “cooped up” with your family. I declare to you that you are in a state of emergency and you need a relationship with Jesus so that you can be free from the state that you are in.
