lets keep informed and open our eyes to the truth. At the same time lets be preppared in all areas of our lives from good health all the way to a good healthy spiritual life.
In today’s society we are challenged in many ways, but not only are we challenged in today’s challenges but also they pop up from our past and even our future we worry about. How do I know ? well I’m one of those people also.
As we read the bible or GODS WORD we need to sometimes take the time out and try to reflect over the word. Today life styles and govermen’ts have found some really good ways of filling our lifes with meaningless rubbish from sport to work to super high prices on houses so that we may need to be slaves to banks for the rest of our lives. But then weekends come and it’s party time all your weekly worries fly out the door as you leave work and life goes to drinking, drugs, sex, violence, and what ever else you can cram in.
So here is my point satan would be very scary if he rocked up as he really was, you would run and flee. so he will come in sheep’s clothing and that’s when it gets dangerous.
The problem with us christians we are pretty gullible as we don’t read the word of GOD and most of the time only listen to watered down, feel good messages or speeches about GOD. We even fight each other, so as satan knows this, he then comes dressed in sheep’s clothing as he then offers us the freedom to do as we will, that rules don’t apply to us, he will cloak himself as righteousness of being “tolerant”, and “not judging others”, he will tell us we have finally come to age and we disregard the hang ups, have sex with who you want when you want hmmmmmm
So what are some of the things satan will promise us if you know what to look out for and all the things i mention have a opposite that if we follow the word of GOD we don’t need to fear, ……….so satan brings pain, he enslaves, condemns, ridicules, grief as the awefull effect of sin, hatred, fear, resentment, revenge, suffering, disease, addiction, bondage, strife, divorce, war, insurrection, disloyalty, he will scorn, bitterness, depression,anxiety, depletion, poverty, loss and deep, deep sorrow….
In some part’s of life we all will be encountered with something that satan will try.
he does this so you take your eyes of the CROSS and he wants you to loose your SALVATION that’s it nothing more.
BUT PUT ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND MAKE NO PROVISION FOR THE FLESH TO FULLFILL IT’S LUSTS (ROMANS 13:14)
For all of us one day will be the end weather through natural causes, suddenly in disaster or just raptured , it doesn’t matter because before this happens we must turn and repent and give our lives to JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth.
If we pray the blood of Jesus over anything, that takes the authority of satan off it. It does not mean everything you pray for will be given or even answered as we still can’t go against GODS will in our lives and funny sometimes we pray for something today and change our minds tomorow, so GOD KNOWS BEST. We need to trust in HIM that no matter what we need to go through, we can not take our eyes of HIM.
SO TRUE CHRISTIANITY CONSISTS OF MARVELLING AT THE LOVE OF THE FATHER AND THE SON AND HOLY SPIRIT.
As I keep saying “God so loved the world HE gave HIS only son to die so that your sins are forgiven” JOHN 3:16
So turn from sin allow your HEAVENLY FATHER guide you in your life, be filled with the HOLY SPIRIT as it guides you through your life, you will not want to sin as you are filled, There is no greater love than your HEAVENLY FATHERS so accept JESUS CHRIST in your life.
IN MY FATHERS HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS: IF IT WERE NOT SO, I WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU. I GO AND PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU (JOHN 14:2)
some awesome reading about true faith comes from “JOB” in the bible just before the book of “psalms”
Where ever you are in the world have a great day or night
SIN in today’s society is a washed out word, that no one even looks at very much any more and if they do, they normally just brush it under the carpet step on it a few times and just walk away and continue to sin.
life was created by our heavenly FATHER, yes some people think we evolved from monkeys hmmmmm but WE will stick with our heavenly FATHER, and it all started with Adam and Eve who chose to go against GODS 1 wish, witch now has led us to today.
Along the way God put together writings that eventually formed our bible. This book was put together by many writers off the time and over time God chose how it would be put together so that future generations can read and learn about the events that happened before our time and hopefully learn something from it.
The biggest event was the birth of JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH, HE loved us so much HE came to save us. HOW YOU ASK? well sin has separated us from GOD and, and GOD wants to free us from sin, so He sent HIS ONLY SON to die in our place so that now we may turn from sin, accept HIM as our saviour and our rewards await in heaven.
So in a way we all have been given a choice? It’s the most important choice of your life, IF YOU HAVE NOT ACCEPTED JESUS INTO YOUR LIFE, TURN FROM YOUR SIN AND ASK FOR FORGIVENESS DAILY, YOU WILL NOT SEE 1 DAY OF HEAVEN.
As with me I have fallen short of the Glory of GOD many times, but over time I am realising that life is short and I have chosen to live my life for CHRIST, this is not always easy, but repentance has become my daily part of me.
SO NOW LETS CUT TO THE MEAT…AND BE DIRECT…….
demons will use anyone that are not totally given to CHRIST, but there life becomes easy as most of the time we do most of the work for them. Now days most churches teach it’s ok to sin as there is Grace in GOD, But remember GOD WILL keep sin out of heaven so you will need to receive the sacrifice of JESUS and TURN from your sin.
some scriptures to back this up are Hebrews10;26-28, Ezekial18 24-26, 1 John3:6
One of the great stories in the bible and how God has responded to sin is in king Davids life. He had to deal with the repercussions of his own sin following his adulteress relation ship with Bathsheba and the murder of her husband Uriah after her mourning he married her and bared a child. Then the LORD sent Nathan to David explained the situation in a different light but ultimately David was to loose his son, no matter how much David pleaded with GOD it came to pass. A great story 2 Samual 11and 12.
So as we also wonder and continue to sin, a good Sheppard will do what David as a Sheppard did with his own sheep. In the earlier days if a sheep would keep wondering, he would break a bone in a leg, then for the next 6 weeks would carry that sheep to each meadow and after it was healed it would no longer run away not because it learnt anything but because it would become attached to it’s Sheppard, so some time’s GOD will break our self sufficiency in order to force us to draw closer to HIM in ways we would never have otherwise.
AND THAT IS WHERE I BELIEVE I AM BEING USED AS OFF WRITING THIS………SOMETIMES GOD OPENS THE STRANGEST THINGS IN THE STRANGEST WAYS, THAT SOMETIMES I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT. SO I ALSO NEED TO STAY PRAYERFUL NOT TO OVER STEP MY BOUNDARIES AND TO ENSURE THAT I DO IT IN LOVE AND NOT FOR SELF GAIN OR REWARD…………..
SOMETIMES WE ACT AS IF GOD DOES NOT EXIST….HHMMMMM.
Well HE does, just look around you.
So today I want to wrap it up so that we under stand, sin ,burns, brutalises and butches His children (Romans 6;23 ) GOD sent HIS surgical team of angels with vials of bitterness and medicines of judgement in there hands in order to deal with sin that destroys humanity,
So are the vials of tribulation unfair? we will see….
also beware the wrath of the LAMB, HHMMMMMM
the world is not well today as it’s suffering the plagues of perversion, sickness of sin, and the delusion of man, in these trials and tribulation you can spill your blood permanently or have JESUS open your HEART.
remember sin will be judged one way or another you have a opportunity to turn from it
IT IS YOUR CHOICE ALONE TO MAKE IT.
LETS JUST PRAY TODAY THAT GOD OPENS YOUR HEART IN A WAY IT HAS NEVER BEEN OPENED AND SHOW YOU LOVE THAT YOU HAVE NEVER FELT, JUST REMEMBER GOD LOVES YOU VERY MUCH, AND ONE DAY YOU WILL HAVE A OPPORTUNITY TO BE PART OF THAT LOVE IN A PLACE YOU COULD NOT IMAGINE.
PEACE AND LOVE
Today we are changing direction, to reach out to people that need to hear the message of JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH.
I have today myself changed direction also, to listen to the HOLY SPIRIT, to become a messenger for CHRIST, I refuse to listen to the world, and see all the rubbish its trying to fill my head with eg facebook and all it’s sexual imorality and language that my kids should not be reading ( how dare they) But what else would I expect from the world and satans best means to try and destroy what my GOD created. he takes the ones you loved and will try and destroy them so I stand for GOD and what HE stands FOR.
SO WHO IS JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH.
acts 4;12 (Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by witch we must be saved)
JESUS is mentioned in the bible HE was sent down from heaven to give people a opportunity to turn from their sins, and the only way HE could do that for us was through the cross.( JOHN 3:16) Many people have heard HIS name but don’t stop and listen.
Today I start my new direction, If you want to listen you can, if you choose not to, that is also your decision.
I will try and base most of what I know from what I have lived. BUT THE REASONING FOR THIS IS I HAVE NEVER FELT THE SADNESS OF SOMEONE LOOSING SALVATION.
DO NOT LET satan trick you…………
The bible talks about this (HEBREWS 10:26-28), (1 JOHN 3:6-10). So I pray that once you give your life to CHRIST, TURN FROM YOUR SIN AND TRY TO LIVE A REPENTED (changed) LIFE.
SO WHY? ETERNITY
We live a very short life on this earth and we don’t know what day will be our last, at a blinking of a eye you will pass and when you open your eyes you will be in 1 of 2 places.
HEAVEN OR hell, the greatest glory would be opening your eyes and seeing past saved loved ones waiting for you with the angels of heaven in some of the greatest celebrations you could imagine. Then being escorted to one of your mansions the size of a city to continue living and enjoying as a child of GOD………….or your eyes wont maybe open and you will be awakening in total torment for the next 1000 yrs where you will suffer a deaf a day. NOT SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO, as most people think hell is for all the party people that like to booze on, party hard and sex all night. Not what GOD has in mind.
UNFORTUNATELY more people will end up there, false preachers and teacher, people that looked away from JESUS, even Christians that don’t live repented lives. so do we justify our sin? sometimes and that is the most dangerous place to be..
SO THIS IS WHY THE URGENCY FOR ME……. WE ARE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS, I PRAY THAT I AM GUIDED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, TO SPREAD GODS TRUTH THROUGH OUR BIBLE AND ANY OTHER MEANS NECASSARY.. TIME IS RUNNING OUT…
SO PREPARE EVERYDAY AS IF IT’S YOUR LAST.
SO TODAY I PRAY THAT YOU RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH INTO YOUR HEART LOVE HIM AS HE LOVES YOU HE WHO WAS THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE FOR YOU SO THAT YOUR SINS MAY BE WASHED AWAY AND THAT YOU CHOOSE TO LIVE A REPENTED LIFE THROUGH HIM AMEN.
The awesomeness of this world never stops. Everything is in the perfect place, not to much water and not to much land, really not to much heat and pretty well not that cold either. Depending on where you live will depend on how you acclimatise to every situation. So as you know as every day the earth rotates around the sun you are guaranteed another DAY.
Every day we are challenged by so many things from having to please our bosses, our wifes or husbands even our girlfriends and boyfriends, and what the heck you may even have to please the cat that wont wait for another day.
Some off us will face the most interesting challenges that are placed in front of us, we sometimes have to determine how to take on these challenges, witch sometimes push us to the limits and sometimes we leave for another day.
If sometimes we just stopped and watch the sunrise in the mornings, we may have a opportunity to ponder what we may have planed for the day. Instead we wake at the last minute and the race begins towards the end of the day we must accomplish this then that and this and that, but then the race comes to a end and it’s time for bed, ready for another day.
Once again the sun rises, but we miss it waiting for that alarm to sound ready for us to take our marks, get set, go. The race is on to get as much possible done in the shortest amount of time. So who is the winner? Because really it’s just another day.
Some times life may become monotonous, I believe sometimes we need to stop and wake up before the alarm and watch the sun rise. In those 10 to 15 minutes sometimes will reveal some of the most amazing thoughts you will ever have, some of your greatest moments knowing your family are sleeping safely inside as you watch the sun rise yet another day.
But one day, there will be no more sunrises, so enjoy today, as their may not be ANOTHER DAY……..
In any situation when we are with out power for extended times, we may start to struggle with certain things. Today most things are powered by electricity. But certain items are a little more power hungry, so what should we have in our reserves.
It’s Quite simple to keep your mobile phones or tablets charged, actually any small electrical device is quite simple as all you need is a small solar panel and a battery that connects to it and these are available at most good hard wares or just about any where on line and they are not very expensive and will see you through as many days needed. The same goes for your torches, if they mostly run aa batteries there are numerous solar charges out there that will charge your batteries during the day, so the more batteries you have the more solar charges you need, and once again these are not very expensive and are available any where on line.
The same goes for your lanterns as these come in wined up or solar and are great for lighting your house for very long periods. So therefore keeping the basics is very simple but we can also take it to the next level. Your tv that you buy can be a 12 volts so it will run on a 12 volt battery, even fridges are 12 volts, even washing machines are 12volts, this sort of covers most things you run in your house without having to use any inverters as once you start to do that your battery bank needs to grow significantly.
So to run a good small fridge and a tv and lets say some led lighting you will need aprox 3 x 100 amp hr batteries and around 150 to 250 watt solar panel or panels. Now days you can buy many styles of covers that have multitude style of connectors so you really don’t need to be a rocket scientist to work it out, and as this is a simple blogg there are many tutorials on the net.
So here in Australia we normally get a good amount of sunshine no matter where we are so charging all your batteries should never be a major concern. So as you build your systems you can keep slowly adding batteries and solar panels so you may really be able to run a whole house hold with your own solar built system, even to the point where you can run a small inverter if you choose to have a microwave…
So I just look at my shack or house or whatever as a large caravan. So next time there is a long enduring black out don’t tell your mates or they all might be over for a cold one, which may not be a bad thing after all…
To finish I still recommend all your cooking and heating to heating water to be gas and once again there are many styles of these from very cheap to very expensive, but just keeping a couple of gas bottles for each appliance is wise as gas may not be accessible very easy during blackouts or disasters, but always keeping a few butane cylinders spare wont hurt either as there are many styles of cookers and heaters in the butane family and they are much more portable if need be.
I love knowing that having a few back up ideas always keeps you ahead of most when people wont be able to eat as most things at home need to be cooked ….
So there is my very simple take on solar prepping your whole house.
So if you want to know more leave a comment… just remember proper preparation prevent poor performance.

I like to think I am a bible believing person that lives mostly with the authority of Jesus Christ in my life, occasionally stumbling and sometimes challenged and sometimes making mistakes along my life journey. But even now days just like in past generations I also believe as Christians we are challenged more by our own kind rather than the world. So yes if you are a christian you believe in Jesus Christ as our saviour, you believe He is the only way to the Father and you believe in His teaching along the way.
But why do I feel a little Uncomfortable with so many saying they are Christians when all I see is jealousy, I see people judging, gossiping which is an all time favourite I think with most Christians, Divorce is still right up there with Christians and in general they still have their little groups that they stick with and I think the list can still go on. But in general why is this a problem in the Christian community when the bible is so clear about the 10 commandments, that cover most of these areas. Also don’t get me wrong there are still many people in churches that truly give their hearts to Christ and that is the key issue, GIVING YOUR HEART TO CHRIST. Just going to church on a sunday worshipping and then going home and no one would have a clue that you are a Christian is when people should take a good hard look at themselves before they start to look at others. So why are we like this?
Well I know satan still tries to deceive most and in the western world we have not really been challenged in Christianity like most of the world. We really haven’t had to go through really tough times on a whole, once again there are many Christian families battling out there from finances to sicknesses etc, but here in Australia in particular I believe the word is watered down so much that people do not fear God any longer. If we all feared Gods word churches would be very different places not just places for some to catch up with all the latest gossip, or use leaders over little trivial things that most off the time can be resolved between fellow Christians having good communication.
So lets get back to the heart thing, I don’t know but when you normally are a practising Christian and as you walk trying to follow Christ’s example, I know if I start to sway or start breaking the commandments the Holy Spirit start’s to give me the guilt and starts to soften me to the point where I don’t want to do it any more, once again we are all sinners and are not perfect, so asking for forgiveness and trying to set it right is a normal path to take, but what really starts to irritate me is some Christians cant wait to pull you up and let you know what you are doing wrong because someone gossiped about it, and what I love even more is that Christians wont listen to both sides of stories before THEY have judged. The thing is we all come under the authority of God, there is only 1 true God in the Christian beleife, and as Christians know the bible has certain ways to do things so that it helps the person that is starting to sway or what ever.
I love church, and what makes church are the people that attend that church, I have been a Christian now for around 14 yrs and I am still learning every day. But one of the things that I have learnt is, be slow to judge and rather than take the person down, help and guide them to a better place, and this I still am learning to do, so with better grace and with the love of Christ I my self try to do this . Now when I go to church I know there will always be different people at different stages of their walk, but I also know if you are hungry for Christ then treating others the way you want to be treated should be up there with what you practice.
I write this blogg in love for other Christians so that we under stand Gods grace better and why He gave His only one son to come down and die for our sins. I dont want Christians to live in fear, or to live in shame of knowing Christ, because now days it is so much easier to get knocked down by others that it stumbles our walk and makes us more like the worldly people.
What did I learn at church today upset me because as Christians we are a 61% majority but we get shot down by the 2% minority. 2 examples are there is a christian school that would say the Lords prayer once a week before assembly but because 2 families complained that not every one has the same beliefe’s, that now the school responded saying they will only do the lords pray at significant times like Easter and at Christmas. The other is how many Christians voted against gay marriage but the 2% for, won the vote hmmmmm, so no one can tell me whats wrong with this picture.. But I will…… firstly every one wants free speech but as soon as a Christian speaks they all say we hate speech, and we discriminate against everything that is wrong, but I don’t believe Christians stop anyone from doing what they want, but are happy to to talk about it or even debate about it.
So really Christians are not perfect, and as Christian I believe most of us need to be more fearful of God and not water down the bible because some people fear it, and we should show a lot more Christ like love to each other and the world.But also we need to stand strong in what we believe and only because we get shot down by most others, we should not let that spreading the word of Jesus Christ.
I love the story where Jesus is in front of the crowd getting persecuted and as Peter, 1 of His disciples was in the crowd denied Jesus 3 times before He fled in fear, but after the resurrection and Jesus returned telling Peter He will be the rock the church will be built on, and after the disciples got the Holy spirit there was no stopping them..
So what has this got to do with every day prepping? well for starters as Christians I believe most of us think we are in end times so now is the time to stick together, we need to be more prayerful, and not against each other but united under Jesus Christ our saviour, because no one knows the hour of the return of Jesus, SO ARE YOU READY?
Thanks for reading
Have a great day or night no matter where you are in this awesome world.
I sometimes look at some good old classic pictures of the way it use to be in the great depression, and not only that but we have endured many wars and many famines and diseases and really from all that have we really learnt anything.
As I drive to work and sometimes pear at the person in the next car or that person sitting in a bus with their head down or that person sitting at a bus stop all heading to work, I wonder to my self, ARE THEY LIVING THEIR DREAM? But as I drive into the city centre and park my car and walk the rest off the way to the building that I am working on, it doesn’t change, with that person sitting at a coffee shop or someone sitting on a bench, as they prepare for the day I wonder if they are living their dream?
But as my day progresses I am privileged enough to see many office workers as I renovate some very executive offices and their they are, Lawyers, accountants, graphic designers, work agencies and the list goes on I sometimes wonder are they living their dream?
HHMMMM, I just cant imagine most off those people being happy what they are doing as most wont look up or even smile, I still love getting in a elevetor and normally ask what floor they would like so I can press the button for them, and most of the time they are in shock someone spoke to them.
But times have not changed, people still today are stuck in the circle off life as they work there 9 to 5 jobs, and really lets put it down to reality there are not many people that look forward to going to work, and unfortunately for most you are stuck doing that for approximately 50 to 60 years.
But the governments do give you incentives to keep working like super annuation that you can look forward to when you retire. Now really I don’t have the big problem off thinking no one should work, but I like to know how the heck did we get in this position in the first place.
It’s like going back to the roman empire days and you had the kings and the high class people that some how fell into money, but then you always have had the working class, and I ‘ think that has changed in the last 3000 yrs or so. See in the time of depression people were crammed into elevators to go deep under ground and mine all day just to cram back into the elevator just to do it again the next day. This doesn’t sound familiar does it??????
So in some way, have we progressed or have we kept the same formula going, just modernised, now days we have fancy elevators and fancy busses and trains and even cars, but this just sugar coats the one thing that we do, day in day out.
So this brings it to the question that, do we live by choice or are we programmed to follow some sort of formula that just keeps the rich, rich while they keep us occupied with extra tv channels, or lift up the weekends with some great sporting events, and boy do they lift it up here in australia, with a lot of sugar coatings and maybe a bit of fairy dust on the sides…..and this all gives you the weekends to look forward to just so that really at the end off the day you go back to work monday and sit at the same bus stop waiting for the same bus day in day out……
So I hope reading this does not depress you, or even up set you as I say to my fellow workers most days “today we will enjoy it as if we are living our dream…”
So is there a good solution to this, I some times have to wonder, But I know this formula has been working for many centuries now, and it ain’t gonna change in a hurry, But I also know that every day I also work toward’s eternity. Life here is short so we do need to make sure we do try and live our dreams, if not every day we should at least try to prioritise times in your life where you set out some time to live your dream, how ever that may be.
For me some of my greatest joys comes from fathering my children and that is definitely me living my dream…….
have a great and blessed day no matter where you are.
JUST REMEMBER YOU COULD BE THAT PERSON SITTING ON A BUMPER OF A TRAIN……..
