Scientific facts in the Bible
There are many scientific facts in the Bible on this website as well as other websites, and I will do my best to put as many down as possible.

Leviticus 17:11- For the life of the flesh [is] in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it [is] the blood [that] makes atonement for the soul.'
We live because we have blood that flows through our body!!!!! If blood is taken out of your body your energy is weak, and you faint and that is just a few small vials of blood. If we are shot, or have a knife put to us, or a spear or a sword put into us, then we begin to bleed, if it is not stopped then we bleed to death. God knows what He says, He is true in all He says and does, and He say that life in the flesh is the blood, and Jesus Christ died on the cross, essentially bleeding to death for our sins which we committed past, present and future, and His death saved us from these sins once we repent from our sins, accept the gift freely given by Jesus Christ, crucify our sinful nature, take up our cross and endure until the end obeying Christ and His commandments.

Isaiah 40:22 - [It is] he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof [are] as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
This is amazing, the earth is round, because God said it is round, no matter how many people do not believe that it is still round, just as God says. We are like grasshoppers, created by God, no power compared to God, we are weak, He is strong, God has given us the heavens as a curtain to cover the earth. God is amazing and true, please get to know Him.

Psalms 147:4- He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name. This is so crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Awesome is our God!!!!! He named every star!!!!!!!!! Stars are too numerous to count and yet God named each and every one of them!!!!!!!!

2Pe 3:5-6- For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.
What has happened, people deny that the flood happened!!!!!!! God is good and always speaks truth!!!!!!!

Jer 1:5 - "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations."
Life begins in the womb at fertilization just as God says!!!!!!!!!

Job 31:15 - Did not He who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same One fashion us in the womb?
And again, God formed us in the womb!!!!!!

Act 17:26 - And He has made from one blood [fn] every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings
Yep, we have all come originally from Adam and Eve, same blood line, the Bible speaks truth!!!!!!!

Genesis 11 speaks about the Tower of Babel when God made people have different languages and different races because of their want to be higher than God.

Eze 47:12- Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all [kinds of] trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine."
Wow!!!!!!!! People use leaves of plants for medicine today just as God said so!!!!!!!

Rom 1:25- who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
Wow, people are worshiping trees, rocks, and created things of God and not the holy, awesome, mighty, loving Creator who made them!!!!!!!!!

Psa 102:25-26- Of old You laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens [are] the work of Your hands. They will perish, but You will endure; Yes, they will all grow old like a garment; Like a cloak You will change them, And they will be changed.
Amen, God exists forever and the heavens and the earth are passing away!!!!!!!!!!!!

Scientific facts in the Bible
this is a website that shows scientific facts that proves the Bible to be true and here are a few of them!!!

Genesis, Chapter 1:1 says " In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." In this verse we have time, force, action, space, and matter, which are the 5 knowable categories of science-
1. time- beginning
2. God- force
3. created- action
4. heavens- space
5. earth- matter
There are many different scientific facts that the Bible to prove the truth of what God says.

Genesis 2:1 (after creation): "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them."
The First Law of Thermodynamics states that neither matter nor energy can be either created or destroyed. There is no "creation" ongoing today. It is "finished" exactly as the Bible states.

Genesis 3:15: "And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel."
This talks about Mary, who was the mother of Jesus, no woman has a seed except for Mary because of her bearing Jesus as a virgin, and satan would tempt Jesus, but Jesus would destroy satan in eternal punishment in hell.

Job 26:7 says " He spreads out the northern [skies] over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing."
He is God and science proves that the earth is suspended over nothing.

Job 28:25 To establish a weight for the wind, And apportion the waters by measure.
About 300 years ago scientists discovered that air does in fact have a weight. The world's hydrologic cycle functions properly because of the weight of the water and air.

Job 38:19 (written 3500 years ago). "Where is the way where light dwells?"
Scientists have just discovered that light (electromagnetic radiation) has a "way," involving motion traveling at 186,000 miles per second.

Job 38:22 (written 3,500 years ago). God says: "Have you entered into the treasures of the snow?"
At the advent of the microscope man discovered that each and every single snowflake is uniquely a symmetrical "treasure."

Job 38:35 (written 3,500 years ago. God Himself speaking): "Can you send lightnings, that they may go and say unto you, Here we are?"
The radio moves at the speed of light This is why you can have instantaneous wireless communication with someone on the other side of the earth. Science didn' t discover this until 1864 when "the British scientist James Clerk Maxwell suggested that electricity and light waves were two forms of the same thing" (Modern Century Illustrated Encyclopedia, Vol. 12).

Psalm 8:8: "And the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passes through the paths of the seas."
Man discovered the existence of ocean currents in the 1850's, but the Bible declared the science of oceanography 2,800 years ago. Matthew Maury (1806- 1873) is considered to be the father of oceanography. He was bedridden during a serious illness and asked his son to read a portion of the Bible to him. While listening, he noticed the expression "paths of the sea." Upon his recovery, Maury took God at His word and went looking for these paths. His book on oceanography is still considered a basic text on the subject and is still used in universities.

Psalm 19:4-6: "In them has He set a tabernacle for the sun, which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoices as a strong man to run a race. His [the sun's] going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof."
The sun is in fact moving through space at approximately 600,000 miles per hour. It is traveling through the heavens and has a "circuit" just as the Bible says. It is estimated that its circuit is so large, it would take 200 million years to complete one orbit.

Ecclesiastes 1:6 The wind goes toward the south, And turns around to the north; The wind whirls about continually, And comes again on its circuit.
The Bible describes the circulation of the atmosphere. The Bible includes some principles of fluid dynamics.

Jonah 2:6 (written 2,800 years ago): "I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet have you brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God."
When Jonah was in the depths of the ocean, he spoke of going down to the "bottoms of the mountains." Only in recent years has man discovered that there are mountains on the ocean floor. The greatest ocean depth has been sounded in the Challenger Deep of the Mariana's Trench, a distance of 35,798 feet below sea level. Mount Everest is 29,035 feet high.

Amos 9:6 (written 2,800 years ago): "He . . . calls for the waters of the sea, and pours them out upon the face of the earth; the Lord is His name."
The Mississippi River dumps over six million gallons of water per second into the Gulf of Mexico. Where does all that water go? That's just one of thousands of rivers. The answer lies in the hydrologic cycle, something that was not fully accepted until the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, 2500 years after the Bible said that God takes the waters of the sea, and pours them upon the face of the earth.

Jeremiah 33:22 (written 2500 years ago): "As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured."
The Bible claimed that there are billions of stars ("host of heaven" is the biblical term for the stars). When it made this statement, no one knew how vast the numbers of stars were as only about 1,100 were observable. Now we know that there are billions of stars, and that they cannot be numbered.

(The Bible asserts that the stars are innumerable (Gen 15:5, Gen 17:7, Heb 11:12). This does not necessarily mean that we are incapable of mathematically expressing their number. It means that no human has the ability to count them individually so as to achieve their sum. It is claimed that there are 100 billion stars in our galaxy alone. If stars were counted around the clock at one star per second, then it would take over 3000 years just to count these. Add to this the fact that there are as many as 100 billion galaxies. However, there were many scholars prior to Galileo who believed that the stars could be counted, and several attempts were made to do so. Many of these counts arrived at around 1000 stars. Examples of Scientific Accuracy in the Bible By David Pyles).

Isaiah 40:22 (written 2,800 years ago): "It is He that . . . stretches out the heavens as a curtain, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in."
Scientists are beginning to understand that the universe is expanding, or stretching out. At least seven times in Scripture we are clearly told that God stretches out the heavens like a curtain.

Hebrews 1:10,11 (written 2000 years ago): ". . . And, You, Lord, in the beginning have laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of your hands: They shall perish; but you remain; and they all shall wax old as does a garment."
The Bible tells us that the earth is wearing out. This is what the Second Law of Thermodynamics states. This wasn't discovered by science until comparatively recently.

Hebrews 11:3 (written 2000 years ago): "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."
The Bible claims that all creation is made of invisible material. Science then was ignorant of the subject. We now know that the entire creation is made of invisible elements called "atoms."

Bible verses on the joy of the Lord

Your words were found, and I ate them,
and your words became to me a joy
and the delight of my heart,
for I am called by your name,
O Lord, God of hosts.
—Jeremiah 15:16

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
—Philippians 2:1-2

These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
—John 15:11

Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
—Luke 15:7

For his anger is but for a moment,
and his favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may tarry for the night,
but joy comes with the morning.
—Psalm 30:5

You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
—Psalm 16:11

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
-Psalm 118:24

They rejoice in your name all day long; they exult in your righteousness.
-Psalm 89:16

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
-Psalm 100:1-2

Ecclesiastes 2:26

To the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.
-Ecclesiastes 2:26

Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work—this is a gift of God. He seldom reflects on the days of his life, because God keeps him occupied with gladness of heart.
-Ecclesiastes 5:19-20

Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation." With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.
-Isaiah 12:2-3

In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.
-Luke 15:10

God bless you all, remember, though the sorrow may last through the night, the joy of the Lord is new every morning,

Importance of reading the Bible

The Bible is filled with verses or passages about the importance of reading the Bible and I will put a few down in this note and I pray this will help you in your reading of Scripture.

7"Only be strong and very courageous; (B)be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.
8"(C)This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; (D)for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.
9"Have I not commanded you? (E)Be strong and courageous! (F)Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."
Joshua 1:7-9

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 2:14-17)

Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:20-21)

And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times.
Psalm 12:6

Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.
Psalm 119:35

I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free.
Psalm 119:32

I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.
I will speak of your statutes before kings and will not be put to shame,
for I delight in your commands because I love them.
Psalm 119:45-47

The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes.
Psalm 19:7-8

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
ROM 15:4

I pray this helps you as you grow in Scripture reading and love for the Lord God Almighty,

Crucify Sinful Nature, Fruit of the Spirit

Galatians 5
Freedom in Christ
1It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

2Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. 3Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law. 4You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. 5But by faith we eagerly await through the Spirit the righteousness for which we hope. 6For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

7You were running a good race. Who cut in on you and kept you from obeying the truth? 8That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you. 9"A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough." 10I am confident in the Lord that you will take no other view. The one who is throwing you into confusion will pay the penalty, whoever he may be. 11Brothers, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been abolished. 12As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!

13You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature[a]; rather, serve one another in love. 14The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself."[b] 15If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
Life by the Spirit
16So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. 17For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. 18But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.

19The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. 25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other

Galatians 5 is power-packed, and very true as we are committed to serving the Lord Jesus.
There are fruits of the flesh, and fruit of the Spirit, we are called as Christ-followers to obey and live by the fruit of the Spirit. I will separate them according to Scripture.

Fruit of the flesh:
19The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
If we continue in our sin as a habitual thing, and are not growing in the Lord daily and do not accept the salvation offered by Jesus Christ then we will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
We are called to crucify the sinful nature, and obey the Jesus Christ and His teachings, and walk according to His will, not ours.

Fruit of the Spirit:
22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. 25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other
So we must live according to the guidance of the Holy Spirit who gives us His fruit. We must not be conceited, we must not provoke each other and we must not envy each other, we must love others with joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, for it is through the love of Christ that the rest of the fruit are available for us to live and obey.

Walk according to the Holy Spirit and bear some fruit,
Mark Cannon

August 16th I will be 18 years old!!

On August 16th I will turn 18 years old, I have been blessed by my Lord, Best Friend, and Saving King Jesus Christ with life, a loving family, great friends, a roof over my head, food to eat, clothes to wear, and the Bible to read and grow daily in my relationship with God. I have taken hgh aka human growth hormone since I was less than a year old. I have taken a pill to help me live since I was a less than 2 years old. I have had my blood tested over 40 times in my life. Blood testing is when the doctors withdraw blood from your veins in your arm to test how your medicine is working in your body, and they see if they need to add or take away a certain amount of medicine so you can live a healthy and productive life. I have become 5 feet 9 and 1/2 inches tall because of the hgh and I am very thankful God has allowed me to be His desired height. I have had many ups and downs in my life, including meeting Charlie Ward who is one of the greatest athletes in the history of sports because he was the Heisman Trophy winner in college football at Florida State and he was a point guard for The New York Knicks in the NBA Finals. I have been to many different sports games including Dogers, Angels, Lakers, Giants, Athletics, Warriors, and Cal Poly Mustangs spanning from baseball and football to basketball games. I have been to Hawaii 4 or 5 times. I have been to New York, the 4 corners, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Washington, Florida, Louisiana and a few other states as well as Canada and Mexico. I have been a Christian since age 4 or 5 and I have grown closer to the Lord ever since, I praise Him for blessing me so much. I have had disappointments in my life as well, I have put my trust in people only to realize that they did not care anything for me and wish I would stay out of their lives, which does hurt when you respect them and they do not care about you. We all go through problems in life, but I know that God has a special plan on my life, I just need to love Him with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength, trust His will for my life, love my neighbor as myself by thinking of others as more important then myself, serving them to glorify God. I need to shine the light of Jesus Christ to this lost world filled with people against God, as we all were before Christ saved us from our sins and told us to be an example to those around us, even if we are young, old, whether we have different skin tones, worship styles, and differences in attitudes and likes, because we know that God loves us and we must show this love to the world.

I am looking forward to what God has in store for my life, and for the lives of those who impact me and the lives of those who I have impacted because of Christ,

God's Questions to Job

Dear atheists, Muslims, Scientologists, etc, please answer these questions that God gave Job and test your knowledge and prove to me that the God of the Bible does not exist.

Job, Chapter 38

1: Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
2: Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
3: Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
4: Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
5: Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
6: Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
7: When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
8: Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
9: When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
10: And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,
11: And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
12: Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
13: That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
14: It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.
15: And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.
16: Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?
17: Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?
18: Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
19: Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,
20: That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
21: Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great?
22: Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
23: Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
24: By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?
25: Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;
26: To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;
27: To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?
28: Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?
29: Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
30: The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
31: Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
32: Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?
33: Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
34: Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?
35: Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we are?
36: Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?
37: Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven,
38: When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?
39: Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,
40: When they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait?
41: Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.

God bless you brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus,

Proofs for existence of God

Many people question the existence of God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Now Genesis 1 says that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. People can argue this all day long but I will give some practical examples of what has been created by a creator. People do not dispute the fact that a building has a builder. People do not dispute the fact that a watch has a watch-maker. People do not dispute the fact that an automobile has an auto-maker. People do not dispute the fact that clothes have a maker. Now if people do not dispute that all these things have a maker, I wonder why they dispute the fact of God who ultimately is the Creator of us all. I believe the reason that people doubt the existence of God is that they cannot see Him physically. My question for those questions is what about gravity and wind. We cannot see gravity and wind, but we know the effects of both gravity and and wind. If we throw something like a ball we know the effects of wind. If we jump off a ledge we know the effect of gravity. We cannot doubt these facts so I ask again how can people doubt God, because we as Christians know that God is, was, and will always be, He is timeless, He will answer our prayers, so true we may not be able to see Him physically, but we do know that He exists because the Bible which is the inerrant Word of God, which does not contradict itself, and as 2 Timothy 3:16 says: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.
So from this Scripture, we learn that we can learn about the existence of God, who God is, how He lived, and how we can live for Him. Now if that is not enough the Scriptures also teach in the book of Philippians 2: 9-11
9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

There is so much more proof for the existence of God and I will expand further in the future.

God bless y'all,
Mark Cannon

Bible breakdown

Genesis 32
Jacob Prepares to Meet Esau
1 Jacob also went on his way, and the angels of God met him. 2 When Jacob saw them, he said, "This is the camp of God!" So he named that place Mahanaim. [a]

3 Jacob sent messengers ahead of him to his brother Esau in the land of Seir, the country of Edom. 4 He instructed them: "This is what you are to say to my master Esau: 'Your servant Jacob says, I have been staying with Laban and have remained there till now. 5 I have cattle and donkeys, sheep and goats, menservants and maidservants. Now I am sending this message to my lord, that I may find favor in your eyes.' "

6 When the messengers returned to Jacob, they said, "We went to your brother Esau, and now he is coming to meet you, and four hundred men are with him."

7 In great fear and distress Jacob divided the people who were with him into two groups, [b] and the flocks and herds and camels as well. 8 He thought, "If Esau comes and attacks one group, [c] the group [d] that is left may escape."

9 Then Jacob prayed, "O God of my father Abraham, God of my father Isaac, O LORD, who said to me, 'Go back to your country and your relatives, and I will make you prosper,' 10 I am unworthy of all the kindness and faithfulness you have shown your servant. I had only my staff when I crossed this Jordan, but now I have become two groups. 11 Save me, I pray, from the hand of my brother Esau, for I am afraid he will come and attack me, and also the mothers with their children. 12 But you have said, 'I will surely make you prosper and will make your descendants like the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted.' "

13 He spent the night there, and from what he had with him he selected a gift for his brother Esau: 14 two hundred female goats and twenty male goats, two hundred ewes and twenty rams, 15 thirty female camels with their young, forty cows and ten bulls, and twenty female donkeys and ten male donkeys. 16 He put them in the care of his servants, each herd by itself, and said to his servants, "Go ahead of me, and keep some space between the herds."

17 He instructed the one in the lead: "When my brother Esau meets you and asks, 'To whom do you belong, and where are you going, and who owns all these animals in front of you?' 18 then you are to say, 'They belong to your servant Jacob. They are a gift sent to my lord Esau, and he is coming behind us.' "

19 He also instructed the second, the third and all the others who followed the herds: "You are to say the same thing to Esau when you meet him. 20 And be sure to say, 'Your servant Jacob is coming behind us.' " For he thought, "I will pacify him with these gifts I am sending on ahead; later, when I see him, perhaps he will receive me." 21 So Jacob's gifts went on ahead of him, but he himself spent the night in the camp.

Jacob wanted to reconcile the relationship he had once had with his brother Esau before Esau sold his life blessing from Isaac for food and ran away in anger. Jacob wanted favor in the eyes of Esau but when he found out that Esau brought 400 men with him to meet him, Jacob became scared and prayed for God to save him from an attack from his brother Esau. We become scared sometimes when we are trying to reconcile relationships with someone who we think hates us and wants to attack us. We must go to God for strength in these times just as Jacob did. Jacob sent gifts ahead for Esau so as to make Esau feel more at ease when Jacob was coming to see him.

Jacob Wrestles With God
22 That night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two maidservants and his eleven sons and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. 23 After he had sent them across the stream, he sent over all his possessions. 24 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. 25 When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob's hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. 26 Then the man said, "Let me go, for it is daybreak."
But Jacob replied, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."

27 The man asked him, "What is your name?"
"Jacob," he answered.

28 Then the man said, "Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, [e] because you have struggled with God and with men and have overcome."

29 Jacob said, "Please tell me your name."
But he replied, "Why do you ask my name?" Then he blessed him there.

30 So Jacob called the place Peniel, [f] saying, "It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared."

31 The sun rose above him as he passed Peniel, [g] and he was limping because of his hip. 32 Therefore to this day the Israelites do not eat the tendon attached to the socket of the hip, because the socket of Jacob's hip was touched near the tendon.

This is an amazing event in the history of the Bible, because Jacob wrestled with God!!!!!!!!! God was merciful to Jacob and did not crush him on the spot where they were wrestling, and instead God decided to touch his hip and bless Jacob and to change his name to Israel. Jacob now named Israel was limping because God touched his hip. God is so powerful, and just a touch of God can cause a person to limp. We serve a powerful God and He is merciful to keep us alive for His service now, so we must glorify His holy name for keeping us alive through the midst of the scary situations we face in our lives.

God bless you all, go and serve King Jesus,

During our lives on the earth we go through seasons of winter, spring, summer, and fall. As human beings we also go through emotional seasons including joy, anger, sorrow, pain, love, worship, happiness, learning, growth, encouragement, and endurance. We can be joyful at the fact that we have a hope in Jesus Christ our Saving King and we also know that joy comes in the morning if we are in Christ because He renews our strength and is the wellspring of joy and He gladly gives His joy to us because after all the joy of the Lord is our strength. We feel angry over people who have destroyed a relationship or friendship we had thought we built with that person, and we are angered causing us to have clouded judgment in other areas of our lives for example relationships with other people Christians and non-Christians alike. We become sorrowful because of deaths of friends and family and loss of houses and money. We feel pain from the daily grind of life, being rejected by non-Christians whom we do our best to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with. When we are a member of the Kingdom of God we can know that triune God will always love us no matter our skin tone, no matter our income, no matter our athleticism, no matter our race, no matter our age, no matter our gender. We are to worship Christ Jesus with a humble and joyful heart and we worship God because He is. We can be happy because of family we have, friends we have, cars we have, and the house we have. We are always learning about Scriptures, life, and love. We grow in our knowledge and relationship with Jesus Christ daily. We encourage fellow believers who are struggling and we encourage those who are down and in need of help or of time spent with them. We must endure to the end of this life and fight the fight of good faith.

Seasons happen, God bless you as you live through them,

Be Careful!!

*1 Timothy 6:3-16* – 3 If anyone teaches a different doctrine, and doesn’t consent to sound words, the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness, 4 he is conceited, knowing nothing, but obsessed with arguments, disputes, and word battles, from which come envy, strife, insulting, evil suspicions, 5 constant friction of people of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. Withdraw yourself from such. 6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we certainly can’t carry anything out. 8 But having food and clothing, we will be content with that. 9 But those who are determined to be rich fall into a temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful lusts, such as drown men in ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some have been led astray from the faith in their greed, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 11 But you, man of God, flee these things, and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, and gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you confessed the good confession in the sight of many witnesses. 13 I command you before God, who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate testified the good confession, 14 that you keep the commandment without spot, blameless, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ; 15 which in its own times he will show, who is the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light; whom no man has seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and eternal power. Amen.

This Scripture is very clear, people have been lead astray from Jesus Christ because of their love for money which has caused them many sorrows. For example today, people can love their money it affects the time they spend with their family and friends and they become sad because they realize later that the people in your life are much better than the stuff in your life that you acquire in life which are good and are blessings from God, but when they confuse the love for others and most importantly the love for God as less important than the love of money then they are lead astray by money, fame, and fortune.

Verse 11 says: But you, man of God, flee these things, and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, and gentleness. So we must love the attributes of God much more than the things God blessed us with such as money.

Verse 12 says: Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you confessed the good confession in the sight of many witnesses. We must continue to live for Jesus Christ daily, the faith in Christ is a daily process not just a Sunday or Wednesday event. If you do struggle, you can go back to the witnesses who are brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ and you can ask them to encourage you and pray for you so that you can follow Christ and not money, you can only serve God or money, not both.

Verses 13-16 say: 13 I command you before God, who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate testified the good confession, 14 that you keep the commandment without spot, blameless, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ; 15 which in its own times he will show, who is the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light; whom no man has seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and eternal power. Amen.
We are to keep the commandments without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ returns. Now we do sin, we have a sinful nature, but we can grow in holiness, the more we read our Bibles, pray to the Lord for His wisdom and His light, we must come to Him so He alone can renew our strength, He is perfect, He loves us even when we struggle, even when we are angry, even when we are lost and off the straight and narrow road, only King Jesus Christ can get us back on track in our lives.
So amazing is the light of Jesus Christ that no man has seen it or can see it, and He will receive all honor, and eternal power. Amen.

Praise King Jesus,
Mark Cannon

Fellowship of the Unashamed

This was written by an African pastor shortly before he was martyred.

I am part of the "Fellowship of the Unashamed." I have Holy Spirit power. The die has been cast. I've stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I am a disciple of His. I won't look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, and my future is secure. I am finished and done with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tame visions, mundane talking, chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals!

I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don't have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by presence, lean by faith, love by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power.

My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few, my Guide reliable, my mission clear. I cannot be bought , compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, diluted, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of adversity, negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.

I won't give up, shut up, let up, or burn up till I've preached up, prayed up, paid up, stored up, and stayed up for the cause of Christ.

I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops.

And when He comes to get His own, He'll have no problems recognizing me. My colors will be clear.

My Best Friend

We all have best friends, some of us even have best friends forever. I want to describe my best friend to the best of my earthly ability. When my best friend speaks, stars, the sun, the moon, planets, animals, people and plants are created. My best friend gives sight to the blind, hope to those who need hope, hearing to the deaf, strength to the weak, and voice to the mute. My best friend began teaching the religious leaders at age 12, and He started His ministry to the world at age 30. My best friend died once for all so that the sins we commit against Him are forgiven, past, present and future, once we repent, and turn from them and accept His gift of salvation. While my best friend was on the earth, no one died in His presence and no one stayed dead in His presence. My best friend is the King of all eternity, His glory would kill all of us even the angels yet He loves us so much that He wants a relationship with us. Everyone will bow down before my best friend and say, Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lamb of God, and will shout out the name of my best friend and say, Jesus Christ is Lord. I wish I could describe my best friend to you, but even my attempts cannot scratch the surface of the glorious magnitude of Jesus Christ the Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace, Savior of my soul, and King of Kings.
