“Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that nether death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:33-39, King James Version [The efficacy of divine grace; Paul's sorrow for the Jews]).
Greetings In the Holy Name Of Jesus,-the Christ,
“...Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we
forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us
from evil: for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,
forever. Amen.” (St. Matthew 6:9-13, KJV [The sermon on the mount]).
Giving honor to our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus, I come before you today to honor my mother, a woman of great resolve to love Jesus, our Lord and Savior, who had she lived would be 99 years old today for she passed away in flesh at 75 years old.. A woman who loved to practice what Jesus preached: love thy neighbor [“Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” St. Matthew 19:16-24, KJV [Of perfection to receive eternal life: the young rich man who wanted to be perfect to receive eternal life]. A woman who loved God's promise: For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son...[John 3:16, KJV]. A woman who relentlessly prayed for the conquering spirit of of the faith of Christ Jesus to heal Canaan: “...O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour” (St. Matthew 15:22-28, KJV [The Canaanite's faith]).
Yea. A woman who fed her neighbors and nursed babies: Jesus fed 4,000 and Jesus fed 5,000 [“And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside women and children” St. Matthew 15:38, KJV [The multitude fed]). Yes, Lord. Yea. A woman who prayed for the sick as a prayer warrior: 'And when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them” (St. Matthew 8:14-15, KJV [Jesus at Peter's house]).
Yea. When I saw the vision of the snake sliding down the side of the mirror on the dresser drawer. Quickly, I placed the open fan next to the path the snake took on top of the computer. Later I envisioned the snake bent not at an angle in half but curved as bent but not broken. However, before the vision showed the snake bent but not broken I saw what seemed to me and appeared to me to be a much larger snake leaving---sliding on the tile floor of the kitchen---going outside. Later, I saw lizards outside---some much larger than others, fluorescent colors like purple and blue, orange and brown—typical of the State of Georgia, not the plain green lizards or plain brown lizards that are typical of the State of Florida, so I thought to myself, perhaps it was not an extraordinarily large snake sliding on the floor of the kitchen but a glorified lizard---the spirit letting me know the lizards outside were trying to get inside away from the extreme heat wave outside. As a mother---a woman of faith, I said, “You
cannot touch me.”
Moreover, I thought about Christ Jesus who said: Get thee behind me, Satan. I thought about a prophet out of California who said, “Satan, you know nothing about the power of God.” Most importantly, I did not fear what I saw in the spirit and I did not run outside the house. I went to the bathroom remaining calm since I placed the open fan at the snake's path, then I returned to lie in bed. The next thing I envisioned the snake was lying on top of me and I took a string and I stretched the mouth of the snake back until it opened up wide and bent back to the spine of the snake---killing the snake with the string as David used the stone to kill Goliath.
