Pastor John Hebrews 10:26-39

Pastor john. Hebrews 10:26-39 11/18/2012 Hebrews 10:26 NKJV For if we sin will fully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, There's a direct connection to what we do and what we believe. . Hebrews 10:27 NKJV but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. John 5:22-30 NKJV For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son, that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself, and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth— those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation. I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me. The Father allows the Son to judge. Hebrews 10:28 NKJV Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Deuteronomy 17:2-6 NKJV “If there is found among you, within any of your gates which the Lord your God gives you, a man or a woman who has been wicked in the sight of the Lord your God, in transgressing His covenant, who has gone and served other gods and worshiped them, either the sun or moon or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded, and it is told you, and you hear of it, then you shall inquire diligently. And if it is indeed true and certain that such an abomination has been committed in Israel, then you shall bring out to your gates that man or woman who has committed that wicked thing, and shall stone to death that man or woman with stones. Whoever is deserving of death shall be put to death on the testimony of two or three witnesses; he shall not be put to death on the testimony of one witness. The hands of the witnesses shall be the first against him to put him to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So you shall put away the evil from among you. Hebrews 10:29 NKJV Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? Your souls death because worshipping any other gods will anger the Father. Saying you get to heaven by being a good person and do good dead insults the sacrifice that Jesus made for us. Hebrews 10:30-31 NKJV For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Matthew 13:19-23 NKJV When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the wayside. But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles. Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” Hebrews 10:30-31, 34-39 NKJV For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. for you had compassion on me in my chains, and joyfully accepted the plundering of your goods, knowing that you have a better and an enduring possession for yourselves in heaven. Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise: “For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul. Faith in the beginning, faith in the middle and faith at the end. Hebrews 10:39 NKJV But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.

Absolutely beautiful

In the year since I have posted I have gained two beautiful dogs and lost one cheating husband. Needless to say the return home honeymoon only lasted three months. The dogs however are as loyal as the day is long. Will write more as I have missed blogging and intend to continue.

I know its been a while since I have written in my blog. A lot has happened since the last time.

I know have three dogs, yes three. Renegade (ChiJack), Echo (Red Nose Pitt), and Geronimo (Akita, Blue Heeler mix).

Still have Cochise my cat although he isn't talking to me right now because of Geronimo.

Anyways, this is what I am looking forward too. My family being together again all in one spot. In the picture is My dad and older brother John on the left. My younger brother Matt, sis-in-law Laurel and of course me on the right. Joining us on Christmas will be my husband Billy and his sister Nikki.
I can't wait. These are the people I love most in this world (except Jeanne I love her too) and I miss them now that I live kinda out in the boonies. The plan is to spend Friday as Christmas eve, Saturday as Christmas since my brother and laurel will be traveling to TX to spend time with their side of the family.

So I just want to tell everyone.

Merry Christmas and don't forget Jesus is the reason for the season.

The top 10 reasons why men have affairs include:

1. More sex (sometimes due to lack of sex in their relationship),
2. Sexual variety through different partners or different sexual experiences
3. Too boost their ego to feel special or still attractive to the opposite sex
4. For the thrill of the chase
5. Opportunistic sex (if the opportunity occurs, they can’t pass it up)
6. To sabotage their current relationship
7. Revenge (to get back at their partner for one reason or another)
8. A feeling of entitlement (the belief they are entitled because they work hard or are the bread winner)
9. Sexual addiction
10.To escape

Our first birthdays together

Ravens birthday was Wednesday and mine was Friday. This is the first of many years of celebrating our birthdays together. The funny part is we are both cancers which means we like to buy presents and we can't keep a secret. It's really fun seeing it in another person. He went shopping for my birthday and when he came home he couldn't wait till my actual birthday, but then neither could I. So we exchanged presents on Tuesday. He was happy and my birthday was perfect.

It wasn't the presents although they were fantastic. It was just the being with my husband.
We have been waiting 6 years to be together. Thats a lot of pressure to come home to.
So many expectations, so much to look forward too. It's been almost three months since Raven came home. What amazes me the most is how a man could be in such a horrible place for 16 years and come home, so caring, sweet and loving.

Raven is proving me right. He is showing everybody that I chose the right path. To follow my heart and love him forever.

He worked hard to find a job, one he loves doing. The people who work with him like him a bunch and the people he cooks for are always complimenting the food. He is in his element.
I love watching and listening to everybody.

Ok so rambling it is. Anyways the Birthdays were perfect.

If you can't beat em join em

So Since my husband came home the only issue was a 10 lbs dog. Renegade likes Raven, likes running with him. Playing with him. Sleeping with him, Hell no. Every night this week Raven comes to bed and Renegade acts like a pit bull with attitude. It takes me picking him up and stopping him from acting like an idiot to allow Raven to get into bed.

Some time this afternoon when I was working. Raven got tired and came up for a nap. Apparently Renegade decided If you can't beat em join em. So even while working I felt the need to snap this historical moment in our family timeline.

May be night time will be more peaceful now.

Been a hell of a ride, Freedom at last.

Last Prison Picture
Originally uploaded by ravenslove
On the eve of my husband coming home, I have been thinking. Thinking how this entire ride started. Meeting him the way I did, falling in love. Resigning my job. The four months they kept him in segregation not allowing him any letters. Closing him off from the world and anyone he loves. Destroying all letters from me to him and from him to me. The people in the city were I lived slicing my tires and threatening to hurt me or kill my dog. Telling me they were going to get him killed in there. One horrible thing after another.

Then him moving to another prison and being able to call me. Hearing his voice for the first time. Moving to a new city were I didn't have to put up with certain people and closer to my brother. 2005 the dissapointment of a two year flop from the parole board.

All the while falling more and more in love. He stayed out of trouble and was moved to different prisons as his security level was dropped. The same heartache, each and every prison saying we will never be allowed to visit.
Then a stroke of luck, transfered to NCCI with a new warden. December 29 2006 they allowed us to get married. Seeing him for the first time after 3 1/2 years was like we had never been apart. We were so happy. Then another dissapointment, still not allowed to visit. We thought it couldn't get worse. We were wrong in 2007 they told us he was coming home. Not only did he not get to come home they kept him more then two years. Now there was more then our share of heartache in those two years. The majority of it was happy we had finally gotten visits and were growing even closer.

Fast forward to February 24, 2010 the parole board finally gave us what we have been fighting for and praying for they are letting my husband come home. The two months seemed to crawl. The last week flew. We had a beautiful visit on April 24, the above picture is the last picture taken of us in prison. Monday the 26th at 8:00 am I will be picking up my husband. As the last picture was being takin, I started to trip and fall. Billy caught me and said you ok? I said yes, I thought I was going to fall.
He looked my in the eyes and said No honey I got you. I would never let you fall. I love you.

So I guess this random blog is in answer to people who ask how I could wait or why I would wait. The answer is I love Billy. Now and forever. More then I have ever loved or been loved by anyone in my lifetime.

He was more in my life and more support then people who lived in the same house hold for many years. So yes the pain we went through is worth it for this time in our lives.


Love to all reading this and I hope you are as happy as I am.
