Be Careful When Asking For Directions



At some point in this life’s road we are walking on, we come to realize our inadequacy to deal with whatever trials come our way. We will realize sometime that the things we have achieved won’t even satisfy our desires nor meet our expectations.

There is always a void. Emptiness is just there. Be careful when you ask for directions how to get to heaven. There is only one way…Only through Jesus…

Proverbs 14:12 - “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.”

1 Peter 3:18 - “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.”

You can head to that right direction wherever you are, whoever you are. Whatever you have done. Simply put your faith in Jesus. There is no magic prayer. Just believe in your heart and pray this simple prayer:

“Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died for my sins. I now invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You alone as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”


“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” - Romans 10:13

"That if you confess with your mouth "Jesus is Lord" and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." - Romans 10:9

If you prayed this prayer, congratulations on finding the right direction!!! Read the Bible and know more about His love. Join a Bible believing church so you may be encouraged in your faith. God bless.

  1. Hi, Rosel!
    The video made your point clearly! And I smiled at her last attack! Your message is a wonderful one. May many find Jesus, the only one who can fill the void.

    So grateful for your prayers. R is more mean and cruel so I can attest that you are kicking the enemy in the butt on my behalf. Love you to pieces, Sis.

  15. It's so sad how some people today try and find other ways to God. I'm a bit late on news sometimes, but I saw an Oprah video on youtube, where she stated that there were many ways to God. Jesus is the only way!

The Attacker (5/15/09)

The sun was just peeking from the Eastern skies. Ephesians 6:12 [37 kb]


Out in the prison’s yard, some huge Sheriff’s buses were illuminated by the soft glow coming from the lights all over from the tall lamp posts. Their engines were turned on, warming up, before the buses would take the inmates to the different courts where they would have their trials.


Orange-uniformed men were lined up in pairs, joined together with handcuffs and chained, forming a long line. They already had their breakfast and had their morning medications prior to going to courts. Some were fidgeting, as they waited to board those buses.


All of a sudden, all hell broke loose! Two men were engaged in a fight, using weapons they made secretly for a while. Deputies called for help on the radio, both for custody back-up and medical staff, as well.


When the air was cleared and the other inmates were secured, one man was down on the floor. He sustained multiple gashes but two of them were deep. One cut was vertically etched from his left ear going down to the jaw line. The other dangerous cut was horizontal on his left neck, close to the jugular vein. Pool of blood dripped all over the floor. Holding his bleeding neck, he was pointing at the other inmate few feet away, being guarded by the other deputies.


The other man being accused was not hurt. There were no lacerations nor any other signs of trauma. He was obviously very agitated as he was being questioned by those deputies, while the medical staff started treating the other man on the floor. They cleaned the wounds and controlled the bleeding. That man was sent to the nearby hospital.


When the investigation was finalized, it turned out to be that the “downed man who was accusing the other inmate” was the attacker and the other one who didn’t have injury was the one attacked. The deputies found out that it was the second attempt to attack the unhurt man. Both attacks on him failed. He was well-prepared after the first attempt on him, that when the second attempt was done, he was able to defend himseld and ended up injuring his attacker severely.


[Source: Life Application Bible]:


We also have an “accuser of the brethren.” Satan and his army of demons are the enemies of God and of everything good.


“Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death.” –Hebrews 2:14


Because of what Jesus had done [dying on the cross], we, who live in constant fear of death shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Jesus had freed us from that fear so we can live for Him. When we belong to God, we know that death is only the portal that leads into “eternal life”. [“Thank You Lord!].


Paul warned us, too that we also battle against the evil forces of Satan, who is a vicious fighter. But to be able to withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. We face an army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, they become our enemies. They will try any device to turn us away from the Lord.


Fear not! For God has provided His supernatural power to defeat Satan and his army, through His Holy Spirit within us. So, arm yourselves with God’s armor.


Let us be strong in the Lord's mighty power. Let's put on His whole armor to resist the enemy's attacks: put on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that we are well-prepared. We will need faith in every battle as our shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed by Satan and his army. Let us put on salvation as our helmet, not forgetting the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Let's pray at all times, on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all Christians everywhere. [Ephesians 6:10-18].
