Here is the first in a new category of posts that I have entitled, ‘TESTIMONY TUESDAY.’ Lord willing, at least once a month on Tuesdays, whenever I come across a video or an article that either presents a Biblical testimony of someone coming to the understanding  of the true  gospel, or a testimony of someone who was set free from a cult or some form of spiritual deception, etc., I will post it for you with the hope that it will bless and encourage you, and, above all, so that God would receive glory and honor for setting these people free.

It is also my hope and prayer that when I share these testimonies with you on Tuesdays, God will use His Word, and the Biblical truth presented in these testimonies to set many other people free from the same bondage and spiritual deception that the people in the videos and articles I choose to share with you have been set free from.

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes; first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” (Romans 1:16,17)NIV

“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans  10:17) KJV

“Sanctify them by the truth; Your Word is truth.” (John 17:17) NIV

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, — and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:8,9) NIV

“I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!” (Galatians 2:21) NIV

“As John was put in prison, , Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. The time has come,” He said. The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the gospel!” (Mark 1:14,15) NIV

“Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord…” (Acts 3:19,20)

“As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” “Since you call on a Father who judges each man’s work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear. For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver and gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through Him you believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and glorified Him, and so your faith and hope are in God. Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable seed, through the living and enduring word of God. For “All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers, and the flowers fall, but the Word of the Lord stands forever.” (1 Peter1:14-25) NIV

 

Today’s ‘Testimony Tuesday’ features Camille Jolly, a precious, humble woman from France. She was an  atheist who then became involved in Roman Catholicism, and finally came to know the true Biblical Jesus! So, when time allows, grab a hot cup of tea or a bottle of refreshing, thirst-quenching water, sit down with your Bible to test what is said in light of Scripture, and enjoy listening to what God has done — and continues to do — in and through her life for His glory! (Each time she shared her testimony in the videos below, she added more details, so it was a joy and a blessing to watch every one of them. I hope you will choose to watch all of them, as well).

Capture Peace I leave with youINTRODUCTION

First I want to say, “I’m sorry” to all of you for not writing anything lately.  To be honest with you, it’s been rather difficult to find the time to even have a few minutes to concentrate and get my thoughts together to write a post or poem since I lost my job of 13 years at the end of October.  I am still searching for a new job, and have had no replies from anyone on the two sites where I posted my resume’, but in Christ’s strength I continue to press on. 

In spite of everything I have been going through lately, I completely stand in awe of the peace that God has given me, and that’s what inspired me to write the following poem so that I can give God the glory for blessing me with His perfect peace that allows me to rest in Him and sleep peacefully every night.  Yes, I did have a few brief moments of crying out to God for His wisdom on what to do and where to go, and I may possibly still have a few of those moments in the days (hopefully not weeks and months) to come, but because I have built my life on Christ as my firm foundation, my faith and trust in Him has not been shaken.

As I was writing this poem I also thought of the many who do not know Jesus and the hope and peace that comes from having a personal relationship with God through Him…people who have been devastated by physical, sexual, and verbal abuse…people who have tragically lost a loved one to death or an accident, and they have been hurt so deeply that they lash out at God instead of crying out to Him for His comfort and His help…people who hate themselves because of some of the wrong choices they have made and they want to end their lives because they can’t go back and change the past.  With all of that in mind, I addressed these brokenhearted people in the final six verses of the following poem, and pray that if anyone who has been devastated by life’s painful circumstances does find their way to my blog,  that God will somehow use my poem — and especially the Scriptures — to bring hope and comfort to their broken and shattered heart.

Thank you very much for stopping by and taking time out of your busy day to read some of my poems and posts.

An early ‘Merry Christmas’ to all of you!

God Bless You

SCRIPTURES FOR YOU TO REFLECT ON

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a child is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father the Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6) KJV

“For  He Himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in His flesh the law with its commands and regulations.  His purpose was to create in Himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which He put to death their hostility.  He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near.  For through Him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.” (Ephesians 2:14-18)

“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.” (Romans 5:1,2a)

“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)

“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you.  I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27)

“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

“Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all.  The Lord is near.  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 Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6,7)

A PERFECT PEACE

Amidst deep feelings of rejection, there remains a perfect peace
Untouched by man’s cruel endeavors, I now see as God’s instruments of release
A perfect peace that only comes from knowing that God is in control
His peace silences every fearful thought that comes, and stills my very soul
Like the perfect peace that filled many hearts when Christ was born that starry night
The fulfillment of many prophecies, hope was born and fear gave flight
The Messiah, the Promised One, who came to free us from our sin
And clothe us in His righteousness, and transform our hearts within
He took on flesh so willingly, and willingly laid down His life for you and me
So that those who’d place their trust in Him would be forgiven and set free
Jesus bore the full wrath of God for all our sin, though Pilate fought for His release
So the barrier of sin would be removed, and with God, His Father, we’d then have
perfect peace
A peace beyond human comprehension, no matter what circumstances one may face
His strength made perfect in our weakness, and sufficient is His grace
A peace not based on mere emotion, but rooted in Christ and in His Word
For we stand on Christ, our firm foundation, unshaken by what we see or what we’ve
heard
We can have the calm assurance that God works all things together for our good
Even when we pray and trust, and things still don’t turn out as they should
Is your life in utter chaos, do you think He’s unaware…
Of all the pain you hold inside, do you believe He doesn’t care
Do you shake your fist at God, have you even convinced yourself He isn’t real
Have unspeakable tragedies severely affected how you see things, and how you feel
Cry out to God to know what’s true, turn from sin; find sweet release
You’ll receive His healing love and complete forgiveness, and you too can have…a
perfect peace
