FoTE Note

"Blested or Tested"

Remember, Beloved, the LORD is over ALL - or else He is over NOTHING - in our lives. 

He is either protecting us from unseen things, or trying to reach us - and teach us - something. We are always   being either “blested” or tested!  

The LORD constantly tests His people, on what He has just taught us...to see if we truly learned in our hearts - or if we are just giving Him lip service.  

He already knows everything, so testing is not for His benefit - it is for our own: to prove to us what is really in our hearts! 

On the mountain, Jesus would teach the disciples ...but as soon as they went down, they forgot everything He said!   You know, Beloved .. our flesh-man or flesh-woman doesn't want anyone to tell us anything! 

But The LORD detests know-it-alls. They are stiff-necked, self-centered and arrogant.  Take some time to ponder this.  Are you being blested  ..or tested?

L. Army Veteran Garrett Anderson was injured by an improvised explosive device (IED) while serving in Iraq. I received his photo from my friends at DAV, and he inspired this whole tale! God bless you Garrett!  Thank you for your service and sacrifice!

Part 1

There was a Crooked Man 
by Rhonda S. Galizia 
for Garrett..


I stopped to see,
when I heard him
cry above the sound
of traffic.

He seemed old…
and bent over a bit,
creating a crookedness
in his back.

His eyes were faded
and terribly weary
from the obvious
burden, he carried.

"Can I help you?" I bent down,
peered into his muddy eyes
waiting for a hint
of acknowledgement.

They were lifeless eyes
except for the tears
that they swam in
for those surreal moments.

"How can I help you?"
I tried again,
hoping his ears absorbed
the sound of my voice.

His strangely-pocked hand
was clenching a crooked tree branch,
creating white knuckles 
in sallow flesh.

"Sir?" I raised the volume
uncertainly...
until I espied a small device
in his left ear.

Nothing.
this was a silent move-ie 
playing, without move-ment,
without life.

I made an offering then:
a prayer, on his behalf
asking the Lord my God
to give me, understanding.

I splayed my warm-fingered glove
over his cold and calloused hand
looking him in 
the eye, again.

Something flickered
a recognition?
a premonition?
a fear?

Slowly, he seemed
to unfold
his wiry-thin body
from the crooked staff.

Immediately causing
me, to reflect
upon the climbing star ivy
clutching the side of my house.

Suddenly, he stood
to full height; he towered
6" over me, and though he
was not straight, he was tall.

His lower lip trembled
across scattered, discolored 
teeth, anticipating an answer
to "Sarah?"

Immediately, I understood
the Lord wanted me to
speak as she!
"Yes! Yes, it's Sarah..."

"Sarah..."
he spoke with his face;
Brow line furrowed, suspicious eyes
ears straining, to hear her sound.

Involuntarily
I was embracing him
repeating, ''Yes, yes - it's Sarah!"
and I'd begun, weeping myself.

As he pulled his other hand
from the depth
of a patched camouflage pocket
in an attempt to remove me,

I backed up
 about 3 feet,
the sound of a blaring horn
causing me to jump.


Part 2

I had utterly forgotten
I was on a downtown sidewalk
of an American-made
metropolis!

"Sarah...?" he pleaded
and the pitiful sounds
 of the City, once again
 conceded, to this crooked man.

This time I answered
by nodding fervently, instead,
remembering the hearing aid
and missing piece of his ear.

It worked!  My heart lurched
as a painful “smile” slowly
developed new lines
across his time-worn face.

It was a fine face, really
just rough-hewn
from hidden combat
and shaggy, from deprivation.

He gestured with both hands
as if to say 'I had given up'
I gasped, and though he did not hear,
he perceived it.

Jesus, help me! my spirit cried
his left hand...and arm
missing!  gone!...
altogether, non-existent.

I rushed to him, and lovingly
took up the precious metal 
which protruded from his cuff,
cupping it, in my own hands.

He recoiled in fear
and shame,
finally settling
on doubt.

"Why, you are a Veteran - 
a Hero!...aren't you, Sir?
A brave and loyal
Countryman!"

Heavy, solemn tears
fell onto his prosthesis
as I sobbed out my own
eternal gratitude.

He grew stiff
like the pine caskets
marched by us in
the news, every day.

"Why can't they see?
Why?" I shouted
to him, to myself,
to the world at large.

Suddenly, two police officers
were asking me
"Is everything all right here, Ma'am?
Is he bothering you?"

"No, no!  
Everything is NOT all right..
and no, Sir - this man
has never bothered me!"

The officer raised a brow
making a determination;
Direct me, Lord, I prayed, realizing someone
 had to answer for this commotion...

"Sir?" he addressed the crooked man
"Do you have $35.00 on your person?"
the crooked man must have read his lips,
using his good hand to turn out his pockets.

"C'mon then, Buddy," he sighed, "I'll have to
run you in again...vagrancy charge."
Reticently, each of the officers
took an elbow, one steel.

They began to quickly
lead him away, looking very
 much like Bookends of the Law
 guarding a priceless tome.

“No, please!  Wait, Officers!”
I caught up, breathless
"Here!"  I shoved $35.00 to
the one in charge.

"Ma'am...........please."
"But Officer, you don't understand;
my name is Sarah, and
I just found him again!"

"He is my, uh, long-lost
BROTHER!!!  Yes,
and he is a wounded
Soldier - a Hero!"

"I... I have come to
take him home, Sir,
where he can begin
to heal."

Part 3

The officer raised 
a knit brow,
a knowing brow, but...
"So, you say he's your BROTHER, eh?"

"Yes, Sir, Officer, ”I breathed.
“My Brother in Christ…
and I was sent to gather
him, back into the fold."

Now, the officer 
dropped his head
and removed his hat
"I’ve lost brothers, too."

I hugged him.
"Yes, Sir.  We have a shared
crisis in America, Sir..
The loss of Brotherhood."

"There is lawlessness in our streets;
those who fight evil
are called, evil,
and the evil, are called good."

"America has become 
a perverse nation;
ALL our true heroes are met
with disdain."

"Lady, you said a mouthful!

The powers-that-be
have nearly removed 
all, lawful authority....

And we are now
quite nearly,
working for 
the enemy."

"And that is EXACTLY WHY, Sir
I have come for my brother:
we must begin to turn
this around, one life at a time."

"Okay, Sister...you win." he winked
at me, with understanding….and approval.
"Go ahead then, and take
 your BROTHER home!"

"God bless you, Sir!"
I hugged him again,
 wondering........ if they 
were City Cops,

Or, heavenly angels
sent to assist me 
in the mission He
had set, before me.

I prayed aloud,
"Thank You, Lord
for Your First Line
of Defense on earth."

They smiled. Policemen
or heavenly angels;
in truth, it was
the same difference.

The crooked man
was watching it all
play out, but had never
ushered a sound.

I wasn't sure
he understood
the full implication
of what I'd told the officer.

The other officer now touched
the tip of his cap
"Ma'am, " he nodded, and kindly
 patted the crooked man's shoulder.

What story would they tell?
I wondered, then remembered 
'How lovely are the feet
of those, who bring Good News.'

"Sarah?"
my heart sang
as I stood with my nose
against his ragged breast.

"Yes.... BROTHER?"

FoTE NOTE

IN THE BEGINNING 
ALL THINGS WERE
 CREATED BY GOD 
AND FOR GOD.  
WHEN IT WAS FINISHED
GOD SAID IT WAS GOOD, 
AND PLACED IT UNDER
 MAN'S DOMINION..  TO ENJOY.

Proverbs 15:16 states,
 "Better a little with the fear of the LORD than great wealth with turmoil."

1 Timothy 6:6 says,
 "But godliness with contentment 
is great gain." 


SINS OF
JEALOUSY, [why you, and not me?  It's not fair!] 

COVETOUSNESS [I want what you have and I am willing to do anything to take it from you, 
for myself!] 

ENVY [malicious grudging; rivalry; How dare you have something I can't have!] 

STRIFE [living under constant war-like conditions; Don't YOU ever tell ME what I can and cannot have!] 

These 4 sins will destroy  your peace and rob you of your spiritual contentment.

ASK the LORD
to search your heart 
and reveal any 
evil ways
in you.

Then, repent and keep your eyes [focus] on  Jesus. 
 He will keep your hearts and minds in His perfect peace!

He that is not with Me

Can You?















Can you
 walk through 
A graveyard
Without finding
 A Soldier’s stone?

Can you 
Fight a world-
wide battle
And do it
All alone?

Can you 
please explain to me
Why some of 
`the people’
 rage and roar
When they are not
 even the ones
Fighting and volunteering for 

Service to 
GOD Almighty
And Service 
to Mankind?

I think not!

So mind your own  businesses
And tend to your own  stores
But do NOT call upon our troops
To come, defend 
your  shores!

For as surely as 
the LORD liveth
That day is soon 
to appear
And when 
only you
 are left,
 all bereft
Maybe then
you’ll re-think 
your "fear".

LORD, You are God.. Who by the mouth of Your servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine 
vain things? 
The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the LORD, and against His Christ.
   Acts 4: 24-26

FORGIVENESS
 DEMANDS A 
 CHANGE OF 
CONDUCT!


"TO FORGIVE WITHOUT DEMANDING A CHANGE OF CONDUCT, IS TO MAKE THE GRACE OF GOD AN ACCOMPLICE TO EVIL!"

PASTOR JOHN HAGEE


Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him.
Jesus looked up and said, Woman, where are thine accusers?
Has no one condemned you?  No one, LORD.
Neither do I condemn you; Go, and sin no more!
St. John 8:10-11

The words of Pastor Hagee are the best I've ever heard, in describing what it is to carelessly forgive.

Too frequently Christians are bullied into believing they must forgive at all costs.  Especially, these days, when every sort of evil is being played across your mind via television and the internet.  We are forced to believe, that we must endorse the rights of the violators, equal to those of the victim.   But I say, Political Correctness is Moral Corruption!

What does the Bible say?

Do we not have to ASK the LORD for forgiveness to receive it?  Do we not FIRST, have to HUMBLY BOW and ACKNOWLEDGE our sin/wrong-doing, and  truly believe in our hearts that we never want to repeat this action or behavior, or think those ugly thoughts or speak those hasty or demeaning words again?  

And then what?  IF WE ARE SINCERE, Jesus forgives us, but warns us to go, and sin no more!

Do not grant forgiveness lightly, Beloved.  Jesus didn't accept the cruel death by crucifixion for our sins, transgressions and iniquities, just so that we would forgive any and every one, and any and every thing.  You must ask the Holy Spirit for discernment, so you can tell the difference between a true acknowledgement, and just a passing regret:
I'M SORRY I GOT CAUGHT!

Genuine forgiveness cannot be earned, only accessed by His Blood,
 and accepted from 
JESUS THE CHRIST
who died ..in order to give it to US!

"Do not throw the pearls of your forgiveness
 before the swine of 
the unrepentant."

Then Call on Jesus @ Acts 16:31  

Jesus warned us in 
St. Matthew 24:37 
"But as the days of Noah wereso shall also the coming of the Son of Man be."

THE SCRIPTURE BELOW IS TAKEN
 FROM NOAH'S ACTUAL DAYS:

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every 
imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  
And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.  And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth.But Noah found grace in the eyes 
of the LORD.

Genesis 6:5
++++++++

WE ARE LIVING IN THOSE DAYS AGAIN, BELOVED!

THE COMING OF THE 
SON OF MAN 
IS IMMINENT!

I PLEAD WITH YOU.. 
DO NOT DEFER FROM IT! 

 REPENT OF 
ANY SINS OR
 NEGLIGENT WAYS WITH WHICH YOU HAVE BEEN LIVING YOUR LIFE -
 AND CONFESS 
THE SAME
TO YOUR
MAKER!

 THEN
 CHANGE 
YOUR WAYS..

NOAH LIVED 
UPRIGHTLY 
AND FOUND GRACE 
IN THE EYES 
OF GOD..

BELOVED, SO CAN YOU!

In His Love, 
Rev. Rhonda

Thank You, Beloved, for another wonderful year!  We are looking forward to sharing 2018 with many more nations dropping in!  Glory to GOD!!!   With everything the way it is in our world, I pray to GOD you are preparing yourself for the "one flight out", as Rev. Ernest, 96, so aptly calls it!  The only "ticket" is to be genuinely saved - re-born in your Spirit through Jesus - and then being baptized with the Holy Spirit.  After all, "Rapture" is a Supernatural Event.. so it will take His Supernatural power to lift us into the clouds to be with the LORD forevermore!
And, behold, I send the promise of my Father (Holy Spirit) upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.   
 -  Lord Jesus, St. Luke 24:49

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, 
with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 
Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air,
 and so we shall always be with the Lord.…
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

The more knowledge we glean from the Word of GOD, the easier it becomes to get free from the snares we find ourselves in.  Often, they are self-inflicted, but we don't even know it - until we can grasp the Truth that has the power to set us free!  This page is intended to help you find your way to Godly freedom, that comes only through knowing Christ and His written Word.  
But remember, Beloved, it is not merely in the accepting of Christ as our Saviour, but in the OBEYING of the Truth we find, that we are set free.  
Happy understanding, Beloved!  ~ In His Love, Rev. Rhonda

Cheating Heart

It is written the LORD despises Lip Service
For it is not from the heart, but the head
And it is not until 
He lets us be tested
That we see the lies
in what we have said.

Considering that we 
are to serve Him Alone
And Him Alone do we worship and adore;
Yet these flimsy strings
 of empty words
Are the proof.. of a heart, Impure.

The Value of Knowledge

Faith comes by hearing 
and hearing by
the Word of GOD.

FAITH = 
BELIEF AND TRUST;
BELIEF THAT SOMETHING CAN HAPPEN and
TRUST, THAT IT WILL!

FAITH is TRUST in someone or something
Created by our knowledge of said person or thing.

Most people know their friends.. and trust them.

Do you know Jesus?
Are you counted
 as one of His friends? 
 Do you trust in Him?

From now on I call you not servants; for the servant knows not what his Lord does: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father,
 I have made known to you.  ~ St. John 15:15

 Say, Beloved!   Do you  ever find yourself missing..

LIVING DESOLATION

Look through any window; 
what do you see?
A woman seeking love,
 most desperately.
She hides more secrets than you shall ever touch
With your tender words and loving hearts,

Though you reach her very much.

And I know you wish 
that you could be
The very unique 
and special key
To unlock the doors 
and set her free

From her past... and all it has done to harm her.

But the mysteries you would encounter
When searching her face,
You would first enjoy,
 soon destroy,
Then put back into place.

For a damaged whole
 is better than..
an untouched half.

She cannot see you; 
she has no eyes.
She cannot touch you; 
she is paralyzed.
She cannot hear you; 
her ears are gone.
She cannot speak;
 she has no tongue.

None... is strong enough,
 to make the journey
 and endure,
Save... The One
The Provider, 
of what she
has been searching for

True Love.

“He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, 
and brake their bands asunder.”

Your Father's Love


His longing
for a Father
is one that
hasn't yet
been met.

But it's true
if you, will
only reveal
The Christ
in you, he'll
never forget.

Then, one by
one, the orphaned
sons, who have
suffered long
enough.

Will begin to
heal, and later
reveal, what
they, too, found
in YOUR
Father's love.

IN THE WAY


The child’s hand was tiny
The mother’s hand was firm
“Come, let us explore together,
For you have much to learn.”

The toddler smiled with open glee
As his mother led the way
“Now, where do you think, my darling child
That we should walk today?”

The child pointed toward the forest
That surrounded their sprawling lawn
“Okay, my dear, the forest it is -
Let’s go get your old shoes on!”

They walked along the sidewalk
And climbed onto the stairs
“Up you go now!” the mother cried with delight
As she lifted him into the air.

The little boy giggled as he landed
Upon a wicker chair
“You stay right here whilst I go in -
And grab your other pair!”

The child nodded his understanding
And the mother knew she must
Leave him there for just a flash
So he would learn to trust.

“Here we go then!” she showed her joy
As she returned outside
For there, sat still, her tiny one
And she was filled with pride.

“Oh, what a good boy you are
To listen to your mum!"
She gave him a squeeze and some kisses
As she began to hum.

“What are you singing, Mama?”
His little face was intense
“ ‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’, dear!”
She replied as they approached the fence.

They entered the cool clean forest
When it was just after two
“So what shall we seek today, my Son?
I leave that up to you!”

“A BEAR!” he cried and clapped his hands
“A BEAR?” she mimicked with feigned fright
“Yes... oh please, Mama!” he asked with big eyes
And that, won her heart, at first sight.

Hand-in-hand they stumbled happily along
The winding and well-trodden path
The child gathered dirt and rocks for his Daddy
As Mommy cooed, “Ooh, stinky you, will really need a bath!”

The little boy stopped to rescue a bug
That scampered under a log
Then into his pocket he shoved the thing
And later, a wee tree frog!

Mama dreaded having to wash this particular pair of pants
Yet she knew he needed to learn some things for himself
So for today, “seeing but not touching” was out of the question
On another day, they would examine the contents of a shelf...

One inside the little grocery store
Where his Daddy went to work
For there, he must not handle the goods
Lest he should ire the clerk!

Most every day she offered
 A new lesson to her child
For she wanted him raised a Godly man
Not crude, or unruly, and wild.

On the weekends the whole family shared
In the places they would go
Though sometimes his mama wisely realized
She had to let only her two “men” go.

On LORD’s Day they all dressed-up fine
Then walked to the church in the glen
Through the mighty rows of towering oaks
And the ashy, “trembling” aspens.

His daddy would always comment
“My, but they are quaking this morn!"
Then he’d reference the fear of the LORD
And the importance of being re-born.

The little boy did not know why
But somehow he understood
So he was always in awe, just knowing that GOD
Was there, inside of them, and walking in the woods!

The clonal aspens stood like a bastion of soldiers
Among royal pines which emitted a heady scent
Ofttimes the squirrels scampered among the trees -
Yes, the forest was alive, no matter where they went!

When his daddy got home from work at night
He was always quite tired and spent
Yet he never ceased to inquire of him
As to where he, and his mother, went.

The boy loved describing his outings
As his daddy nodded and smiled
Because the love in his eyes was gleaming
And it filled the heart of his child!

Then right before bed his daddy gathered him close
And called out aloud for his mother
To come join them in hearing those certain Bible stories
That can only be told by a father!

Well folks, those precious years escaped
Like aroma from a steaming cup
And quite suddenly it happened -
That the lad was all grown-up!

When high school was over
And college was done
He met a few girls
And then, married one..

Who was very much like his mother
And who loved the forest, too -
Because more than anything else he wanted
For his children to be able to do..

The same kind of explorations he had known
Throughout all those early years
A different adventure nearly every day!
Now his eyes filled again with tears

For the lad was now a preacher man
Who had just laid his father to rest.
And he still thanked the good LORD every day
For having given him the Best.

"I promise to take good care of Mom," he vowed
To his Dad, standing over his grave
"For she is the very one who taught me early on
That I must always be brave.."

"But right now I'm finding that hard to do, Sir
Because Dad, your courage and strength were Divine
So while you're looking down from Heaven on us now
Please say a prayer for me..  to find mine."

“But yes, whatever it takes, dear LORD
I commit to You this day

- To whatever I must do
To become a Father like You -

That I will teach my own children
Even as they ..  are walking in the way.”

 COMMONLY BELIEVED 
BY THE ABUSED



- It's all my fault;
 I brought this on myself; 
I shouldn't have upset him/her.

 - They [abuser/s] can't help it; they don't mean to hurt me/us.

- I'm sure it will end real soon
...if I behave better.

- I'm not worth much anyhow.

- If I can just love them better
they will stop hurting me.

- It's not that bad. .really.

- Nobody's cares enough to help me anyhow.

- It can't get any worse;
the worst is already over;
It'll be all right...really.
 ​
- This is normal; it happens 
in EVERY family.

- I can't survive on my own anyhow.

- I have no money TO get away - even if I could.



NOW HEAR THIS!
Any Relationship you have
should be
SAFE
SECURE
CHRIST-CENTERED
because Father GOD does care what happens to you!

But YOU must care, too,
and make GOOD CHOICES
so He can help you!

Father GOD created YOU 
with a free will - and He does not interfere with our choices.

Therefore, we must ALL live with the consequences of the things we choose!

If you continue to keep it secret, 
in darkness -
hidden from public knowledge
you are actually giving control 
to the one who is abusing you!

You are hindering your own rescue!

If there are children involved
that evil spirit will most likely
attach itself to them also
and infect the next generation.

It will NEVER get better
until YOU admit to YOURSELF that it IS ABUSE.

It will NEVER get better
until you tell someone!

And you will NEVER 
be delivered and made whole
until you ACKNOWLEDGE IT
BEFORE THE LORD.

​The LORD is my strength 
and my song; 
He has become my victory!

ABSENCE OF HEART​


When the heart changes

The mouth follows

Words become weapons

Spears and swords

To slash into ribbons

The very heart and psyche

Of the one you vowed

To love forever.

FATHER GOD said,
I will never leave
Or forsake
You.

Leaving is Absence
 of  Presence

Forsaking is Absence 
of  Heart

With Mankind, it is
If a man or woman

more than...

but with GOD,
you can have 
as much love
as you want!

Blessed are those
who hunger

​Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  -  Philippians 4:8

THINK UPON 
THESE THINGS

Whenever I meditate

Upon what is Good

And is Lovely,

My thoughts 

Always return

To You.


You are the 

Perfect Valentine

and

Perfect for Me.


I Love You

With

All of My Heart

and

All of My Mind.

Think upon these things.


I Love You 
My heart still takes wing!
Happy 30th Valentine's Day!

This is my homemade Valentine for my 
Husband Joe this year..

but you can easily see..
it could have been sent
to Jesus.

Ladies, love your husbands
as you love the LORD!

Men, love your wives 
as Christ loves the church:
Sacrificially.

And soon you both will be
getting Valentines
like this, too!



For where your treasure is,
THERE
your heart will be.. also.

MOTHER LOVE​

The Mother grinned
And borne the pain
For her laboring
Was not in vain

Anon was born
A beautiful child
Tho' covered in blood
Mother still smiled

The mother loved
The mother soothed
The mother prayed
The mother knew..

Hardships would come
As years would pass
But Mother Dear
Would hold on fast

To the Word of God -
The Anchor
of her soul.

Fix these words of Mine in your hearts and minds;

Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home

when you lie down and when you rise up. 
Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates,

But for Nought

So here I am
I muddled through
Another day -
But not 
Without You.

My body aches
My brain, it's true
The sun's a harsh mistress -
But only
Without You.

Breathing was labored
Yet each breath I drew
I took without thinking -
But not
Without You. 

Nothing in my life changes
Nothing is new
It already happened before me -
But not
Without You.

Only these thorns
Will remain, it is true
And the Blood to remind me -
Life would be for nought
Without You.

I love You, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY
And how fervently I Thank You  
For the safe passage through
Another day that would be nothing
Except 
For You.

According to Jeremiah 33:3
Calling upon His name: Jesus Christ my Saviour

...show me great and mighty things, the hidden things of Your kingdom., according to Your Word..


"Rarely do humans realize that the hardships and catastrophes are to mold them - into the vessel I created them to be.

Otherwise, how will they sense the purpose for which they are created?

The Secret? 
Giving thanks in ALL things!"


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I teach all who have an ear to hear, to pray to a different name of the LORD every night, according to Jeremiah 33:3.
 It can be names of the Father, the Son, or the Holy Ghost.

He is not a mere man that He should lie, or the son of a mere man that He should change His mind!

He will answer you in dreams and visions and images which He will drop into your mind and spirit.  He will also speak to your heart with personal answers.  GOD is Spirit, Beloved..  Therefore, His Voice IS audible within your spirit!

Spend quiet time with the LORD every day, Beloved.  Be prepared by having your Bible and a notebook to journal in.  Be silent before Him..
I promise you, if you are genuinely seeking His presence, then you will know the fulfillment of the Scripture St. James 4:8 which states:

"DRAW NIGH [NEAR] UNTO THE LORD, AND HE WILL DRAW NIGH UNTO YOU!"
                              In His Love, Rev. Rhonda




Father GOD,





I fervently seek
 a heart of pure love
for the lost,
because my life 
is worthless
unless I use it
to do the work
You have assigned
to me: the task
of telling others
the Good News
about Your
wonderful kindness
and unconditional love..
in that, while we
were still sinners,
even so, You sent us
Jesus the Christ -
the eternal Son of GOD 
 and 
the Son of Mankind -
Who was
 conceived in a Virgin
through Your Holy Spirit
and in due season,
was brought forth
in human form,
into the Human's world!

Thank You, Father GOD,
that Your Son Jesus
lived and grew
and walked
among us
and taught us  
- as one of us -
because His task 
as the sinless
Son of GOD
was to go to Calvary
to bear all the sins
 of all mankind
all at one time
so Mankind might 
be forgiven
of all our filthy living
and be set free
by His Shed Blood!

Never let me 
take that for granted
Father GOD.

Our Salvation is 
a Priceless Gift..
that cost Jesus
everything.

Forgive us 
when we take
lightly
Christ's sacrificing
of HImself
on that Cross 
to assure us 
"It is finished!"


Thank You, Father GOD
for our eternal life
to be spent with Jesus..
and You, Father GOD,
and Your Holy 
Resurrected Spirit,
Who currently lives
in us.

Oh, the wonder
of it all,
Amen!

PERFIDIOUS


The LORD has been through our valley
The LORD has already thrashed, and
The LORD has already separated 
The wheat from the chaff.

The LORD has patiently warned them,
Decade after decade, Time and again
But the Children, still, are not listening.
They only want to play;
To have things Their way,
And now, it's too late.

The LORD even sent His Latter-Day prophets
And just like the prophets in the Past,
These prophets were slain at the altars, too
But these were slain 
With murderous comments.

"PERFIDIOUS,"whispered my LORD, "PERFIDIOUS!"

EXTINCT







As the earth groans and travails,in the birth pains of a New World Order,
We are drawn to its Center - against our will -
And sucked down, like so much quicksand.. to become extinct.

- For there walks among us a Double-Minded Man  -

An angelic mask - with sardonic grin
To cleverly disguise the evil within.
Sly, melodic words which twist and deceive
A vulnerable Nation who needs to believe.

Be ye not seduced! by his facades and guises -
Rather, represent HE, whom The World despises!
Violate not! your integrity - 'for the sake of Peace'
For comes now the false Prophet.. and Ravenous Beast!

Alas, My Brethren, Battlelines are firmly drawn;
Exhort now the Others, to see their Armor's worn!
Through Rivers of Blood, o'er Defiled & Desecrated Ground,
Until, anon, we meet anew - when Seven Trumpets sound!

May GOD speed our fates, finding us Worthy
For a Soldier's Spirit rests in Sovereign Hands.
Yea! 'tis better to die  -  and live eterne!
Than to fall from Grace, extinct.. like Unsaved Man.

REJOICE!  And again, I say REJOICE!
By GOD's  Holy  Grace 
 Fruit  of  The  Earth
is  currently  serving 
145  Nations
for  Jesus  The  Christ!
Our prayer is to serve

Behold, the laborer awaits the precious  fruit of the earth,

To The Very Last Drop

The cupboard was 
very nearly bare..
But, what?
Was that, lying there!

Her hands trembled
As she lifted
The corner
Of the napkin
And peeked, eyes
 open wide..

Oh me, oh my
to her great surprise
The napkin concealed
a slice of bread
inside!

She carefully
gathered it
onto a small dish
examining it
for mold.

And after 
turning 
it over
again and
again
she lifted it 
up, crying
Behold!

Now she 
placed it into
the toaster
and set it 
to Golden Brown

Meanwhile after
stirring her cup
so she at last
might wake up
she laid her Tea
spoon down.

The toaster 
popped
The toast to
on top
of the ancient
metal toaster

While she 
scoured the
shelves for
a butter pat 
or something
like that,
again feeling
what her job 
loss had cost
her.

Nothing left
Nothing to 
choose from
Nothing
because
there was 
no money.

A tear started
to fall as
she leaned
against the wall
straining on
tiptoe..

And then she 
spotted the
honey!

Oh, LORD,
she cried,
You always 
supply!

 She 
lifted the
honey
from the
shelf but
had to 
steady 
herself

When her smile 
turned to
a frown
as she brought
the honey
down.

For, in there, 
was only the 
very last
drop.

She held the jar
and prayed
giving thanks for
another day
then poured it..
until it
stopped.

She swore she’d
never seen 
anything
so beautiful as that
lengthening 
golden bead...

Slowly making
its way
down and out,
struggling to
reach the 
tea.

Oh, the riches 
of the LORD!
she groaned
inside.

And as it fell 
into her cup
her face 
lightened
right back
up..

Ummm..
The tea was
sweeter
than expected
she mused then
deflected,
for being a
single
drop.

And dipping
her toast
into the tea
she embraced
yet another 
reality..

That last drop
she said, is
just like 
when You bled
to save a
wretch
like me!

The steam
from her tea
rose from
her porcelain 
cup..

Thank You, Jesus
for supplying
all of my
needs.. yea
And to, the
very last
drop.

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.   - Philippians 4:19 NLT

Mother & Me  

The arms
that received
Me
bloody
from the
womb

The eyes
that stared
at Me
in disbelief

The heart 
that received
and blessed
God
for the
Miracle of
Me

The lips
that gently
touched My
forehead
in a long
moment of
exaltation

Tears fell
rolling down
Her cheeks
and onto
Her breast
where I
lay nestled
softly sealing
the Love of God
between
Us.

Such
was the
Fate of
Mother and 
Me.
Grandmother & Me

The angel
that lifted
Me
into the 
cradle of her
arms

The eyes
that danced
when I smiled
or yawned

The heart 
that blessed 
both Mother
 and Me
and then
melted into
 Mine

The lips
that pressed
into My
forehead 
and said
Welcome
Beloved!

Tears caressed
her cheeks 
and tickled
Mine
sealing our
hearts forever
The LORD is 
great and 
greatly to be
praised!
she cried.

​Such
was the 
Faith of
Grandmother and
Me.

I remember your genuine faith, for you share the faith that first filled your grandmother Lois and your mother, Eunice. And I know that same faith continues strong in you. ~ 2 Timothy 1:5 NLT

For every true mother/father
 who genuinely nurtures -
 and disciplines -
 from a heart filled
 with love and justice, 
there are thousands who stunt children through abuse and selfish ambition. 
To which I say, Beware.. 
of hindering, 
love.

But when Jesus saw it, He was much displeased, and said unto them, Allow the little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. - St. Mark 10:14

America, The Great

Grandmother took a job to make ends meet
Times were severe, supplies were dear
And there was rarely enough to eat.

She replaced a man who was called to War
To go defend, along with friends
Belgium’s cold and embattled shore.

She proudly stood for hours on end
Wielding the torch, she kept on the porch
As she served with the other women.

On the hardest day she grabbed her head:
Two officers emerged, and everyone heard
That Matilda’s sons were... dead.

Taking courage from the flags though quite unnerved
Simple pine boxes to rest, she had done her best
To mark their lives and the Country they had served.

She hung both flags daily saluting their fate
For she knew that her sons, just babies with guns
Were two of the “men” to make America, The Great.

 * I descend from a long line of Patriots. Members of our family have fought in every war. I have in my possession the Symbol of Leslie Faith & Fortitude: a small blue New Testament that was signed by - and attended the service of - each soldier who went to battle. Recognizing that America is at a precipice, like Jeremiah the prophet, I have wept many rivers of tears for my Nation.. for its survival.. and for the future of my grandchildren, and now, by GOD’s blessing, a great-grandson!

This Independence Day, I am extremely grateful for a President & Vice President who openly acknowledge that our freedom comes from GOD, and no other.  

We currently have two nephews actively serving:  Gene, a Navy Seal
and Nick, an Air Force Fire Captain. Both are in their mid-to-late 30's and have wives and children.  Your prayers and intercessions for both men and their families would be extremely appreciated.

 MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS AMERICA, LAND THAT I LOVE!

Arise, Arise!
For a great 
Surprise
Is now awaiting thee
In the lovely weeping  
Cherry Tree 
This frigid early
 morn.

She wears
A sparkling
Linen dress
Which beautifully
Doth caress
And quite
Exquisitely express
How Spring
is thus adorned.

And there Up High
Upon her branch
Sits my First Robin
to romance!

O' how deeply my heart
Hath yearned to 
Hear his
call
For he doth truly possess
A song within his reddest breast -
The sweetest song of
all!



In him
I see
remarkably
The LORD's
steadfastness 
Aimed towards 
me...

Be it future
Be it past
His Love & Beauty
are First
and Last!

A shout-out to those amazing aviators who enhance our long summer daze!

The mighty
roar of their
engines is
the first thing
we hear..

Then suddenly
like magic
they all just
seem to
appear!

They flip
they flop
It never
stops

The maneuvers
of the bright-
colored
planes

They criss
they cross
they even toss

Piercing clouds
on the bright
and sunny
days!

We rant
we rave
the children
wave

But they 
never do
reply

Except you know
to put on a
show


High high UP
in the 
sky!

For their 
attention
must needs
be

Not on the
children nor
on me

But on the 
aircraft
with which
they FLY!

‘Tis quite 
good for
the young 
ones to see
them soar

Lofting
above the 
mountain
heights
and more!

For it gives
them dreams 
and private 
schemes

To one day
experience
the Highlife
flight for
themselves!


 For I know the plans I have for you..plans for hope and a future.

What Believing in Christ means:  When you say "I believe in Christ!", you are declaring that you truly believe and accept that Jesus Christ is Whom He says He is in His Holy Word, The Bible: the ONLY begotten of the Father in Heaven; The Son of GOD!  You are saying that you believe in His Virgin Birth, His Miracle Ministry on Earth, His Agony and the Power of His Shed Blood during His Cruel Crucifixion as He bore all your sins, my sins, and the sins of the world - once, for all people and for all time, reconciling us back to the Father [giving or imputing His Holiness into us in exchange for our filth and and sin - making us fit for the kingdom of Heaven!] You are further stating that you believe Christ's Burial was in a Borrowed Tomb, and that He was Bodily Resurrected on the Third Day by the Father, through the power of the Holy Spirit.  You are acknowledging His Multiple Appearances to His Apostles, Disciples, and Followers after His Glorious Resurrection.. and His Baptism of Fire on Pentecost- which He told us to wait for from the Holy Ghost, and His Ascension to The Father, where Christ is now seated at His Father's Right Hand.  You are saying that you are eagerly watching for His return to gather us up to Himself [Rapture], that we might be with Him forever!  You are avowing to keep His commands and do them until He returns.  You are declaring, I shall live by faith!  You are proclaiming, To know Him is to love Him.. because He first loved me.
God Bless You, Beloved!
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

FoTE Quote
Rev. Rhonda S Galizia

    Divide... and Conquer
FoTE Quote:  
The evil principality called Division has been sent out from Satan to rally his forces of darkness... and separate the human masses from from the Light!  So we, who are called by His Name - CHRISTians - must now also gather and conquer Division in His Name!"                                                                                                                                                             ~ ​Rev. R S Galizia



Greetings, Beloved!  

"Divide and conquer" is a military or political strategy for achieving political or military control.   The Anti-Christ is waiting to take total control.  

It is nothing new.  The LORD GOD employed it with the Israelites (Hebrews/His Chosen People) when taking over the Promised Land.
It took many areas and layers of planning, many long years, and many different people to accomplish it.

Alexander the Great employed this strategy to conquer the world in his day.

Satan is the great IMITATOR.  He has NO NEW IDEAS for himself!
But oh, the havoc he can wreak, using what his own Creator meant for good!  His favorite pastime is TWISTING WORDS.

In the Garden of Eden where Father GOD placed Adam and shaped Eve, Satan slithered-in, in serpentine form, and twisted the words of the Creator, to suit his own perverse ploy.

He succeeded - he literally divided Eve from her husband's oversight, and thus, conquered her and Adam's free wills!  The result was devastation... a fall from Grace - permanently driven out from the very Presence of the One who had so lovingly created them in His Own Image!

To this very day, we all suffer from the curses brought on by Satan's lying, twisting tongue!

In America, and many places around the globe, we are witnessing firsthand the implications and results of divide and conquer.

It is tearing America apart, whilst Satan laughs on the sidelines!

Satan has mustered his rulers of darkness, and sent out one of his Top-Guns, so to speak. Division is furiously stirring-up the peoples of the earth.  Everyone is turning on each other in an ever-growing maddening pace.  

 Division, in turn, has sent out his generals and ranks, such as the demons of LYING, FALSE REPORTS, CHEATING, SLANDERING, LYING IN WAIT, ENTRAPMENT, COERCION,  DISILLUSIONMENT, 

TWO POWERFUL DEVILS - Defamation and Character Assassination - have taken the world stage
as we increasingly witness the crumbling of our Nation.

Chaos and Disorder are two more of Satan's high-ranking demons that are shaking us to the core.  Hatred, Resentment, and Contempt - and Death are flourishing via the media , and most-especially, the Internet!

Children are attacking other children and even bullying them into suicide!  We have never seen anything like this before.. and often, we become numb to the news, because all civility and common sense and decency seem to have been removed far from public awareness.

As we who serve our LORD and Master, Jesus The Christ, continue to try to be civil and decent, we are being pummeled - and silenced -  at every turn.

Our children and grandchildren and great grandchildren are frightened  and dismayed.  They are being lied to in the schools and in public media.  The pressure is so great they feel like they are living in a pseudo-world.

In many ways they are, as the darkness tries to overtake the light.

Jesus warned us so clearly in St. Matthew 24 & St. Matthew 25 of what to expect.

The Body of Christ is reconciled back to the Father and united in Him through Christ, and is being held together by the Holy Spirit in us, on Earth.

As Satan and all his devils and demons are loosed against us, let us never forget that it is written, GREATER is HE who is in us (The Holy Spirit of GOD) than he (Satan/Lucifer/god of this world/prince of darkness) who is in the world!

If you are a true follower of The Christ, then please know, we CANNOT Be divided or conquered!

Our Victory is already accomplished in Jesus!

Daily, put on your Whole Armor of GOD - the NEW MAN, or The Righteousness of Christ, which was given to us at the moment of our Salvation - in exchange for our filthy rags!

Read the Word of GOD, and renew your minds with HIS power.

Fight from your knees with the Sword of the Spirit of GOD - The Holy Bible.  

Employ the Scriptures, Beloved.  SPEAK THEM ALOUD.  Fill your atmosphere with hymns and spiritual songs...  Dwell on - MEDITATE ON - whatever IS good and lovely.

As it is written in Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” 

Remember, Beloved ...the Word of GOD does not return void!  And The Weapons of GOD are NOT CARNAL (physical; of the flesh)  Nay, they are MIGHTY.. even to the pulling down of strongholds!!

Use all the power of GOOD living in you, to help others now, who are caught in this massive End time web, woven by Deceit, another of Lucifer's generals.

But unlike Adam and Eve, we have been given the One and Only Way - back, to Father GOD, and Eternity with The Trinity!

Jesus IS the Truth, The Way and The Life.  
No one... NO ONE...  can come back to the Father - and reclaim Eden - except through the shed Blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross, where He gave His life - for yours.  And Father GOD lovingly accepted His Own Pure Lamb as PAYMENT IN FULL for ALL of the World's SIN DEBT!!!

Yet so many still refuse to "see the Light", and reject the Holy Spirit when He tries to woo them unto Salvation.

Please do not be one of those who refuse Christ...  and are cast into the lake of fire with Satan and his demons, when this is all said and done.

Jesus IS coming soon - but only for those who are actually watching for Him and eager for His appearance!


1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.      St. John 1:1-5

REACH FOR                                    THE CROSS






This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  2 Because mankind shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despising those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

​Delight thyself also in the Lord and He shall give thee the desires of thy heart!  Psalm 37:4
​Delight Yourself!

Delight yourself in the LORD -
Get to know Him!
When He fills your heart with joy -
Then you must show Him!

Don’t leave Him 
Alone on the shelf
All wrapped inside The Book -
To just dwell on ...your SELF.

Dance before Him
Leap with abounding Joy
Shout praises to His Name
Tell Him you enjoy...

Every moment
Every word
In what you've shared
Of what you've heard

Tell Him you love Him
With all of your heart
Praise Him for Jesus
And a Brand-New Start!

Laud Him for the Holy Spirit
He sent to dwell inside
Who leads you into all Truth
And mentors you besides!

Do not fret or fear
That He is distant or aloof
The fact that you are Redeemed
Makes you Living Proof!

So delight yourself in the LORD -
Stay attendant at His side
Keep Him closer to your heart
Than the heartbeat.. He provides.

Delight yourself also in the Lord and He shall give thee the desires of thy heart!”
Psalm 37:4

FOR THE HUNDREDS OF YOU SEEKING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING ON HOMOSEXUALITY.. I HAVE HEARD YOUR CRIES, AND I SEARCHED UNTIL I FOUND WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE THE KINDEST AND GENTLEST PRESENTATION [BELOW]- YET ONE WHICH REMAINS THE  MOST FAITHFUL TO THE WORD OF GOD.
I CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR EACH OF YOU.  ONE OF MY OWN GRANDSONS IS COUNTED AMONG YOU.  IT NEVER CHANGES THE LOVE.. ONLY THE DEGREE OF URGENCY FOR PRAYER...BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN LIED TO!  AND MADE CONFUSED!
 I SINCERELY LOVE ALL OF YOU - AND DEARLY ENOUGH, TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH!   
JUST REMEMBER BELOVED.. NONE OF THIS HAS TAKEN FATHER GOD BY SURPRISE.  AFTER SATAN'S REBELLION IN HEAVEN, FATHER GOD CAST HIM OUT - AND 1/3 OF THE ANGELS WITH HIM - WHO HAD FOLLOWED HIM IN HIS SIN OF PRIDE!
I BELIEVE FATHER GOD WAS EVEN FILLED WITH COMPASSION FOR HIM: ONE HE HAD CREATED - KNOWN AS LUCIFER - AND SO,  GAVE THE EARTH TO HIM TO RULE INSTEAD.  BUT LUCIFER DESTROYED PARADISE THROUGH ADAM AND EVE, AND HE IS STILL  DECEIVING AND DESTROYING AS MUCH TRUTH - AND AS MANY PEOPLE- AS POSSIBLE TO THIS VERY DAY!
BUT FATHER GOD GAVE US HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON JESUS TO  THE WORLD [EARTH] SO WE COULD FIND FORGIVENESS OF SIN AND ETERNAL LIFE!
JESUS HIMSELF TOLD US (Luke 17:26-33, Matt 24:37-39, 2 Peter 2:4-9) THAT IN THE LAST DAYS IT WOULD ONCE MORE BECOME LIKE THE DAYS OF LOT [SODOM AND GOMORRAH]... AND NOAH [GOD DESTROYED THE WORLD AND EVERY LIVING THING BECAUSE MAN'S THOUGHTS WERE EVIL CONTINUALLY BEFORE HIM  ONLY 8 PERSONS WERE SAVED!]    BUT FATHER GOD PROMISED US THAT HE WILL REMEMBER HIS RAINBOW! 
THEREFORE, MY BELOVED, TAKE HEART!!   XO Rev. Rhonda

BIG Children

Whether we are
without child...

Have miscarried
our child...

Are separated
from our child
because of
circumstances

Or have lost 
our child
to disease or 
accidental death...

Our Loss
is great
and our 
Grief profound.

Who can know it!
but The One
Who Bore It
at Calvary... 

For even at
the foot of 
an old wooden 
cross

He will surely cause
a flower
to  grow.

​Surely He has borne our griefs 
And carried our sorrows
Isaiah 53:4






TraiTs

There once was a darling child born
In the wee hours of a cold Autumn morn
Who was created to only be loved.
But her parents it seemed
Had already deemed
That, she was not worthy of.

For her father, you see,
Just between you and me
Thought that girls were a big waste of time.
But the mother who knew better
Intervened when he’d let her
So the little girl was always misaligned.

Her mother was such a fool
And thinking her own self quite beautiful
Wanted the child to be her clone.
So in cruelty, then, did she
Begin to remove from her daughter dutifully..
Every trait, that was not her own.

Then, when father and daughter were estranged;
After all her God-given traits were re-arranged
The mother, still, was not satisfied.
So she methodically destroyed
Whatever the child enjoyed
And ignored her, whenever she cried.

Meanwhile, her mysogenist father 
had shaved her little head bald
Then recalling his war days, guffawed, 
when the little girl had bawled
But even that... that was not torture enough.
Came the day when her top front teeth had a wee wiggle
But just barely enough to make the girl giggle
Still, the father yanked them out together, quite rough!

They named her "Bald & Toothless"
Mocking her with anyone who would hear
And the little girl's spirit shriveled inside
Her siblings and even her "friends"
Laughed at her again and again.

They placed an old wool scarf upon her balded head
Whilst the child fervently wished that she were dead
Then sent her off to her favorite Sunday School.
Where she was ridiculed and teased
And never really received..
Except for one teacher, who loved her so.

The little girl flew into her open arms
To escape the verbal and physical harm
And the crushing remarks from her peers.
Then the teacher so lovingly cooed 
God loves you and so do I, she soothed
Trying to counteract her gut-wrenching tears.

The older that little girl grew
The more cruelty she knew
Like the misused Bible on the shelf.
For the mother proceeded to strip
From the child every good and perfect gift -
Because truly.. the mother hated herself.

The poker-straight hair on the girl
That the mother would force to curl
Was just to feed her own ugly pride.
And the little fat knobs on her knees
For which she was mercilessly teased
And was always forced to hide..

Just drove her further into regression 
Because of her foolish mother’s obsession
And she believed she was uglier than dirt.
She thought that no one really understood
Why she thought she was no good
Or that, she was always, living in hurt.

So the girl grew up in shame
Embarrassed even, by her name
That was not only odd, but extremely unheard.
For the movie-struck mother had chosen 
The name of a star that had risen,
And most folks, it seemed, found absurd.

But suddenly, the girl was fourteen
And developing nicely in between
The old, ugly gaps and unused spaces.
Amazingly, her name was heard in a song
And the trend for hair was now straight and long
And she even had one of those “oval faces”! 

But, it was not until many decades further
That the girl finally did not hate her mother
And could forgive everything she had suffered.
For in Christ she had discovered that the truth
From her very harsh and tormented youth
Was that all the bad traits were actually her mother’s!





He has made everything beautiful in its time. 
He has also set eternity in the human heart; 
yet no one can fathom what God has done
 from beginning to end.      Ecclesiastes 3:11
