TRUTH or LIES ~ YOU DECIDE


satan hides HIS LIES 
among God's TRUTH 
to keep the world 
perpetually CONFUSED. 
It is a spiritual battlefield.

Therefore....

…Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.… ~ Eph 6: 11-13



GOD is the FATHER of ALL TRUTH

satan is the father of ALL LIES 


"If God were your father," said Jesus, "you would love me, for I came from God and arrived here. I didn't come on my own. He sent me. Why can't you understand one word I say? Here's why: You can't handle it. You're from your father, the Devil, and all you want to do is please him. He was a killer from the very start. He couldn't stand the truth because there wasn't a shred of truth in him. When the Liar speaks, he makes it up out of his lying nature and fills the world with lies. 

~ John 8: 42-47 ~ The Message 


EACH of us must CHOOSE. 


If you think not choosing sides...
not believing and thus not following
one or the other...
is an acceptable place to sit;
You are deceived ...
and the testimony of Jesus
is not in you.

You are neither hot or cold.
A 'mug-wamp'...a 'squatter'...
teetering  in the balance.


GOD CALLS YOU 'GOD-SPIT'


I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. 'So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. 'Because you say, "I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing," and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked,… Rev 3 : 15-17


God is a God of ORDER
God is not a God of confusion...but of peace
God is not the author of deception.


Therefore...

to not choose is indeed a choice.
It's a choice to allow a mantle of deception
and confusion to have authority 
in and over your life;
The essence of handing over 
your body mind and spirit 
to the enemy of your soul.


Just as Adam handed over his
God-given dominion of the earth
and all the fullness therein....
by choosing to listen to the voice of LIES 
rather than God's TRUTH -


NOT choosing God 
and His TRUTH which is JESUS,
is like handing over your birthright;
Your  inheritance as a child of the KING.


And instead - giving your permission
for the father of LIES to torment you;
subdue you; curse you and your family;
Rob from you; devour you and your children.


Simply because you were 
too proud to CHOOSE...
too proud to give up control 
of your life to another.


And yet...not choosing,
finds you walled away in a prison cell.
Your supposed 'free' time finds you
tethered to the evil Warden of your soul.
Who's only goal is to parade you
in front of your enemies,
as well as your family and friends...
as his prized trophy!

~ SELAH ~



By the authority of Jesus Christ who lives inside of me,
I state once again, as I did 4 years ago 
when my blog was under attack
that as for me and my HOUSE -
and my blog HOUSE...

WE WILL SERVE THE LORD!


The father of LIES and his messengers 

will not stop my voice! 
Their stand against me...
only serves to strengthen 
His voice in me! 
My voice is designed by God 
to be a written voice;
to write HIS ANSWER on a billboard;
that anyone can read it at a glance, 
and rush to tell others. 
My call is Habakkuk 2:2. 
May I be nothing else but His echo;
His messenger of TRUTH. 
He wants to hear only Himself 
in the words that I speak. 


I will live and speak for TRUTH and JUSTICE 
as long as HE gives me breath!


God knows the plans 
that He has for my life - 
plans to help me 
and not to harm me. 
How do I know this, 
because scripture does not LIE. 

 
God is not a man that He should LIE
God's TRUTH is not affected by satan's LIES



"This foolish plan of God's
is wiser than the wisest
of human plans,
and God’s weakness
is stronger than the greatest
of human strength."
1 Cor. 1:25 



My TRUTH comes from GOD'S TRUTH - His Holy scriptures, laid open before me. Don't take anything I say for granted. Search the scriptures - the BIBLE - for yourselves. Seek the TRUTH of which I seek and am compelled to speak. Test it! If at some point you feel I'm misaligned on God's truth, please, kindly direct me to the TRUTH and nothing but the TRUTH. I will BLESS you and not wish harm against you.

God is not finished with any of us yet! We were created in His image...the journey of a follower of Christ isn't an easy one. Don't believe anyone that tells you it is so. Being a follower of Christ means death. We have to die to SELF in order to follow in His footsteps...gradually being restored into His likeness...from Glory to Glory as scripture says.  


Learning to know Him causes us to see ourselves more clearly....in His light. No longer deceived by the enemy of our soul...satan.  It is essential to know and therefore stand on the TRUTH of God as written in His Word...believing in and standing on His promises in all circumstances...so that we not be blindsided by the enemy's deceptive ways; that we see ourselves ... as God sees us...created in His image....to reign with Him...in this life as well as in the new Heaven and the new Earth. 

There May be plans for....
and mighty talk of...
'A New World Order'.
But do not be deceived.
There will be a New World alright,
But the ORDER of this WORLD...
the 'Government' of the entire universe
has always been under the sovereign will
and authority of God the Heavenly Father...
Creator, Author, Guardian of All TRUTH.  


God's Government will NEVER cease! 
He is the 'I AM' of the PAST; 
PRESENT and FUTURE.


And Unto Us a Child is Born...
…For every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult, And cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire. For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this. ~ Isaiah 9:5-7



"The Lord of Heaven’s Armies has spoken -
who can change his plans?
When his hand is raised,
who can stop him?”
Isaiah 14:27 



The Battle Belongs To The Lord!


"O GOD OF ISRAEL,
I ask that you would BLESS ME -
ENLARGE MY TERRITORY,
that YOUR HAND would be with me,
and that you would
keep me from EVIL,
that I may not cause PAIN"
1 Chronicles 4:10



The Lord
is my Shepherd,
I have everything I need!


Dear Lord of my life... 
lover of my soul, 
My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, 

I humbly praise you for showing me YOUR TRUTH! For giving me a "discerning eye" rather than a "skeptical or evil eye". Thank YOU for saving me from a path of LIES. May YOUR will be done in my life as it is in Heaven. I praise YOU for who you are. I thank YOU for your salvation -YOUR provision - YOUR promises are TRUE. YOU alone are TRUTH.


O Lord! Thank YOU for sending the HOLY SPIRIT to help us - to guide us - to direct us in the path of righteousness -rather than the misdirected path of LIES. May we not walk in FEAR. For YOU did not give us a spirit of FEAR, but of LOVE and POWER and a SOUND MIND. YOU know the plans and the purpose that YOU have put into place for each of our lives...  before the beginning of time. Strengthen us to walk that chosen path for us, even in the face of the enemy of our souls. 


The very fact that the enemy has chosen to fearlessly attack my voice, is simple proof of YOUR intended message through me...through those of us who choose to follow YOU. I submit my body, mind and soul to YOU, O Lord - my voice is YOURS for keeping. 



TETHER OUR VOICES TO YOUR TRUTH O LORD!

Teach us humility... even in the face of the enemy. Cause us to make a concentrated effort to focus on YOUR humble life and personal sacrifice for all humanity. Thank YOU for being the God of second chances...cause us to bow ...
only to YOU, O Lord. 

In YOUR Precious Name
I pray...YES! YES! AMEN!

May we never forget this spoken TRUTH...



The Battle Belongs To The Lord!


“Thus says the LORD to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” ~ 2 Chronicles 20:15 NKJ

  1. I have to come back again as I am leaving in few minutes to go to work tonight. But I know I intentionally visited though rushed because I wanted to be fed with His truth before going to my own battleground...which is my workplace. There is no need to reason out...His is only the truth! May the Lord always lead us into His truth! Have a good night sister and God bless and protect you.

    1. Your work is definitely your battleground. So glad you stopped by so I could pry for you as you were at work. I lifted you to Jesus the minute I saw you were working. thank you for your blessing of protection....that is what I also pray over you because of your position in the prison. But I also pry that He will open powerful opportunities for you to share and give God's GRACE.

      carry on dear sister

  2. Once again a lovely post Patrina, and I say 'Amen' to your prayer. I thank God that He is not a man that He should lie, and thank Him for keeping my earthly father's words in my mind all these years 'Let's see what the Lord says.' The word of God is the plumb line.
    God bless you.

    1. Yes, Brenda, what a powerful legacy that your father left for you...'Let's see what the Lord says'!

      He was a mighty tall one in the Lord!

      My daddy always had a scripture to enlightened any situation or circumstance where there was confusion or doubt; separation or conflict; jealousy...pride, ect...

      He had them all memorized. We didn't much appreciate his wisdom growing up...but like you, they became strong roots that held me up in later years!

      Very thankful and blessed for his leadership and for knowing and sharing God's TRUTH with us a such a young age.

      Thanks for picking up the pencil, Brenda
      Blessings of health and healing in Jesus name.

  3. Let GOD be truth and all men be liars!.....wow! you can smell a lie a mile away?..awesome gift!...I can't even smell it until it is under my nose! ....too trusty for my own goodI tell you! :) Yes, HE is a GOD of second chances......that is why we as humans should also learn to give each other second chances.
    Truth is a priceless gem that some cannot appreciate or handle it...it takes courage to continue to say the truth regardless of people's attitude,thus, GOD would continue to strengthen you to do HIS work .

    1. New Dawn.... I did some updating today after reading your comment. I had written that Jesus was the Father of TRUTH... but some might not understand that Jesus was with God from the beginning as spoken of in 1 John 1: 1-14
      . He is called ... THE WORD... vs 14 reads "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth."

      Full of GRACE and TRUTH.

      Anyways, I did a lot of rewriting the post as it was originally posted in 2010...when my blog was under viscous attack. Actually it still is.

      I don't know if others are experiencing this but my posts are being used to make money ...by someone other than myself...my stats reveal that! 100+ page views a month - 99% of my audience - are all websites from Russia! SERIOUSLY! And...many are porn sites! I don't click them...never click on a link you don't recognize in your stats. It is DANGEROUS for the security of your computer - But the names of the sites reveals their substance...or the lack of!

      This original post was one post that was under attack. So I tried to revamp it...and figure out why. But there was some unseen formatting that wouldn't allow me to change things. I spent hours fighting against something I couldn't see. Sounds and smells like the enemy, doesn't it :) Never figured it out!

      So I reverted to draft and copied and pasted into a new post...

      Today, after rereading it...I was too frustrated and tired yesterday...I rewrote it from a different angle then its original posting.

      Therefore, I took out the part you commented on :) ..about smelling a lie a mile away. That is still true figuratively speaking...but it no longer needed to set up residence in my current post. So I removed it.

      you said..."too trusty for my own good I tell you! :)" that was funny. Actually I am too! But God is growing my discernment. When you study HIS TRUTH for so long...the LIES can't even hold water! You notice the leak right away... and you start asking why it cant hold water.

      It does take courage to speak TRUTH. And it takes wisdom to speak TRUTH in LOVE. I am still lacking in both :) But I pray for more! And I walk as if I were unafraid. It will eventually get easier.

      Absolutely...if God is a God of second chances...then we are to follow His Act...and behave in like manner towards our fellow man...our brethern.

      Thanks for picking up the pencil and for helping me take a second look at the post.

      hugs, my friend

    1. you are so funny. I got your first two comments in my mail. You made me laugh! I needed a smile. I am sick today. So thanks for trudging through even though you made typo's.

  5. Years ago I read a great little book by Warren Wiersbe, "The Strategies of Satan". It covered much of the same material you have here, reminding us how predictable & unimaginative are the same old/same old lies. Truth ~ God's truth ~ is such an effective antidote!

  6. It truly is such an amazingly wonderful thing to belong to our Great God! How precious He is! I am so thankful for His Truth that we can read and refer to and search out in His Word. We are so incredibly blessed to have access to the Bible in our own language....it came to us at such great cost. May the Lord bless you, Patrina. In His Love, Camille

  7. Perfect love casts out fear... and the perfect love of the Father has caused you to be fearless and unashamed. God is glorified through you, dear Patrina. His hedge of protection surrounds you, His favor protects you like a shield. Shalom, Lidia

  8. My eyes have been opening wider to what's happening seeing more clearly what the Bible calls the enemy disguised as an angel of light. These are perilous times. Stand strong no matter what Christ is on our side.

  9. Thanks, Sassy, Camille, Lidia, and Susan for visiting. I'm traveling ...and blogging just isn't on my agenda. But I thank you for taking the time to comment. Thank you for your encouragement and the spoken blessings. Lidia, Your words came at a very discerning moment. timely indeed. I felt the love of God cast out my fear. I still feel His hedge of protection around me. Thank you for your discernment. You were an instrument of His peace at the precise moment of chaotic surroundings. Continue to pray for me on my journey. May Love ...His love...always reign in my heart and life .

    Blessings to you all
