PROVING A DEITY EXISTS by: Amanda Beamer

 I hope & pray that all of you are having a wonderful & blessed day.

I’m sorry that you all have missed the beginning & close of this conversation below.

Being on the outside looking in makes this post look quite harsh = because of not knowing the events that surrounded it = for that I am sorry.

I intermittently post portions of actual conversations to keep a log of those whom I or another brother/sister in Christ have witnessed unto = whether it be good or bad.

An individual came forth unto another sister in Christ that was having difficulty witnessing unto that person. The conversation went forth all out of love & a soft spoken tongue & with previous admissions of that certain individual.  There weren’t any assumptions made about that individual. She (the sister in Christ) was able to witness with what God had done for her plus many other evidences. The conversation continued & that individual is continuing to ask questions hungry for God’s word.

My nephew claimed to be an atheist for many years. Because of that, he was very analytical & questioned everything. Sometimes it takes time & patience to bring forth truth. I learned with him & others that are seeking truth = you keep the conversation open, so they will come back asking more questions. God worked in His life through trials & myself & family witnessing unto him. He is now a professing believer in Christ & growing.

Below is only a portion of the conversations that went back and forth with the above stated fellow sister in Christ & another individual. God bless & hope you enjoy.

ANONYMOUS = Hello brothers and sisters. What do you answer someone to this question:
‘What rational reason do you have to believe that a deity exists’?

AMANDA = Turn the question around & make them answer you.

They appear to have an atheistic type spirit.

“”” (What rational reason do YOU HAVE TO NOT believe that a deity such as GOD ALMIGHTY EXISTS?) “””

“””The fact that I believe in a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, that can save from all condemnation out of love for my eternal soul, gives me fulfillment with a sound mind & wanting nothing.”””

“””Because you do not believe in such, leaves you empty & void=== endlessly searching for something. Daily you seek things, that in the moment make you happy; but when you are left to your own devices, leads you to depression. You realize that emptiness can’t be fulfilled without believing in something to fill that void deep inside that you know you have.””””

Romans 3:23
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

John 3:16-18 King James Version (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

AND WHATEVER ELSE SCRIPTURE THE LORD LEADS YOU TO

God bless

THE ATTRIBUTES OF CHRIST by: Amanda Beamer

ANONYMOUS = What Greater Love Is there than to share that people must turn from their sin and follow Jesus or they will perish. You listen to conversation from people who have convinced and deceived themselves to believe they are a Christian. You’ll be hard-pressed even hear the word God even mentioned unless they’re around religious folk or at church. Is this you?They ignore the sound doctrine of the Bible and have become ignorant believing a fable. I am learning to be combative with the Word of God. I am not at war with them but trying to get them to look at themselves and not others. Gods law is written on the hearts of all and the individual must acknowledge they have sinned against a Holy God. It’s only then, they see themselves condemned in their sin and their desperate need for a Savior. The saving is Gods business. We are called to be faithful and true. Amen

AMANDA = We use the 2-edged sword of truth to reveal the lasciviousness of the flesh.

Galatians 5 is a good chapter = it distinguishes between living after the flesh or having fruits of the spirit.  

Galatians 5:18-26 (KJV)

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

We are told to have the mind of Christ.  

For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.

 

We also discover in revelation, that Jesus has seven spirits =

= Revelation 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

The 7 spirits of God/Jesus is revealed in Isaiah =

= Isaiah 11:2 King James Version (KJV)
2 And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; =

(1) SPIRIT OF THE LORD,

(2) SPIRIT OF WISDOM,

(3) SPIRIT OF UNDERSTANDING,

(4) SPIRIT OF COUNSEL,

(5) SPIRIT OF MIGHT,

(6) SPIRIT OF KNOWLEDGE,

(7) SPIRIT OF THE FEAR OF THE LORD.

And we are also told “a soft answer turneth away wrath.”  

Proverbs 15:1 (KJV) soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

We pray & ask for discernment when to use all these attributes of Christ.

Each situation & person is different. God knows this= He uses & instructs His disciples (like Moses) when to be meek & when to use Gods word for wrath unto repentance like when he confronted the Pharaoh in the exodus.  In Numbers 12:3 (KJV) Moses was called the meekest man on the face of the earth at that time. (vs 3) (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)

It all takes growth, prayer, studying, ABIDING, & meditation. The best love is to show a lost person that they are a sinner & need a Lord & savior (JESUS Christ).

Romans 3:23 (KJV) For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

God bless

BEING DOUBLE-MINDED & STIFF NECKED by: Amanda Beamer

God doesn’t want anything to be set before Him as a god. Anything can become idolatrous = IF YOU LET IT.

Coca-Cola can become a god to you if it gets in the way of God almighty & Jesus His Son. It all depends if you are worshiping it in your heart.

For example = I personally do not set up a Christmas tree at Christmas because I know of its roots & where it comes from. It is one of those things that you bring up to God in prayer and ask for His discernment; because He ultimately is the one that searches the heart.

I have pictures of Jesus within my home as a reminder of whom I serve and as a teaching tool unto my children. It ultimately is a matter of the heart upon whom you serve.

Now I will say this === there are true idolatrous figures that I would definitely not have within my home because I know of the pagan origins of where they come from. Its best to not have anything within the home that can defile it.

The above all has to do with actual graven images, but the worst god that can be set before God is the god of SELF.

==========LUKEWARM; BACKSLIDERS; HYPOCRITES; VIPERS; ADULTEROUS WIFE; FORNICATORS; ADULTERERS; DOUBLE MINDED; IDOLATRY; REBEL ;stiff-necked people (means= hard to turn)================

====== These are all biblical synonyms for those that try to serve another god. ========

What is the number 1 commandment given by God in the Old Testimant?:

Exodus 20:3
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Exodus 23:13
And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth. 
Deuteronomy 11:16
Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;

This one commandment that has been iterated numerous times throughout scripture and in amongst the churches, that you would think many would take HEED to a very important commandment.

There is a common theme that you see from Genesis all the way to Revelation, showing how God is trying to enforce that very commandment, because of it’s imperativeness:

  1. When Satan beguiled Adam & Eve = They thought they “could be like God” making them gods themselves; therefore they set another god before GOD. They were made perfect before sin ever entered the picture.

    John 1:1-9 King James Version (KJV)
    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.
    6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
    7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
    8He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
    9 That was the true Light, which LIGHTETH EVERY MAN THAT COMETH INTO THE WORLD. 
    Because they set theirselves as gods before God, they adulterated their hearts & left their “first love” (the Son of God = the Tree of Life). Then they repented.

  2. When Satan fell he stated “I will be like the most high.” He tried to make himself a god; therefore he put himself as another god before GOD. Satan did not repent.
  3.  At the time of the flood = God only saw the grace in the eyes of one man, NOAH. The whole earth was filled with violence and servers of the FLESH. They had made their sinful flesh to be as gods. Therefore, they had put theirselves as gods BEFORE GOD. Everyone outside the ark did not repent.
  4.  Sodom, that is later called Jeruselem’s sister in scripture, became lovers of self (amongst many other things), & therefore put themselves as gods before God. Sodom did not repent.
  5.  The fallen angels that lost their first estate became servers of self, therefore making themselves gods before God. The angels did not repent.
  6.  Joseph’s brothers became servers of self when they threw him in the well. Only difference here is, the brothers later repented and became part of the 12 tribes of Israel.
  7.  The very same Israelites that went into Egypt with Josesph, later had to be rescued (apx 400 yrs later) from Egypt. The pharaoh was given ample time to repent & did not. He then later met his demise with his followers in the Red Sea. He had made himself to be a god before God along with his soldiers that also served him & servers of their flesh.
  8.  The Israelites that escaped with Moses out of Egypt, along with their riches & slaves, sang “the song of Moses” because they had been redeemed. Covenants went forth to circumcise the first born and commemorate all the first born unto God (including cattle). This depicts the first fruits & first works of the promise of Jesus to come = THE REDEEMER. Despite all that, many were found to be double-minded and created the golden calf to worship because they longed for the idols in Egypt. This brought forth the 10 commandments given on Mount Sianai with the #1 commandment of “There shall be NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME!”  & THIS INCLUDES SERVERS OF SELF.

DEALING WITH SIN & HAVING LOVE FOR CHRIST by: Amanda Beamer

DEALING WITH SIN & HAVING LOVE FOR CHRIST by: Amanda Beamer

Matthew 5:1-8 King James Version (KJV)

1 And seeing the multitudes, he (Jesus) went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:

2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Only you know truly if you abide in Christ or not, but Christ searches the heart. We don’t come unto Christ perfect, because HE is the one that perfects us =

= if we let HIM!

If you have come unto HIM with a pure heart and are striving through HIM to turn away from sin = HE sees that & counts it as a treasure unto HIM.

Do you know why HE counts it as a treasure? =
= It’s because it shows your love to HIM.

I don’t know if any of you are familiar with or have a Godly marriage or not = but picture a holy marriage.

The husband does things for the wife out of love.

The wife does things for the husband out of love.

The longer the relationship grows, the stronger the love grows. Either spouse would die for one another if NEED BE.

Just as with marriage, the stronger the relationship in Christ becomes, the less sin there will be.

God WILL use a believer that sins if they are repenting with a pure heart. Each person is different & HE knows this. What one individual struggles with & finally overcomes = God will use that individual to minister to others that has had that same struggle, to also overcome.

This is why fellowship with the body of Christ is so important = to help each other & hold one another accountable & not be led astray.

This is what I want everyone to do =
= reflect & pray on any sin you are struggling with.

Are you being pure in heart & fully submitting unto Christ? =

= if so, then continue to abide in Christ & continue repenting over it. Have FAITH (FULL BELIEF THAT CAUSES YOU TO OBEY CHRIST) & He will help you overcome it.

=If you do not have a pure heart about that sin, then repent to Christ about not fully submitting unto Him & then continue repenting & perform as I stated above.

God WILL use believers that sin = BUT IT ALL DEPENDS on if they are truly being repentant or not & what form of sin it is.

Just in an actual marriage, reverence (or love) Christ as you would (& more than) your spouse.

Ephesians 5:1-2 King James Version (KJV)

1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

There are different ways to fear God:
one is to fear His wrath for doing wrong
&
the other is to fear HURTING HIM for doing wrong (because out of love).

Ask yourself this =
= are you fearful for wrath or are you fearful because you love Christ?

If you are fearful for wrath, then LOVE & praise HIM.

If you already abide in Christ, then don’t be fearful for wrath = but be fearful for HURTING HIM.

The only reason mankind has feelings is because God had them first.

Every time we sin – it is another pounding on the nails of Jesus on the Cross. It is another disappointment given to our BELOVED.

Out of love for Christ, I fear of disappointing him when sin occurs, because I KNOW IT HURTS HIM. It grieves ME when I HURT HIM.

That is the beauty of conviction – it shows a developing relationship.

I pray that this has helped someone out there & God bless.

KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR vs SHADRACH, MESHACH, & ABEDNEGO by: Amanda Beamer

KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR vs SHADRACH, MESHACH, & ABEDNEGO

 

DANIEL 3 (King James Bible)
This is one portion of scripture that usually gives me a great deal of inspiration. The three were taken up to be placed into the fiery furnace for not worshiping the idol set forth. They refused to bow down.

Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego KNEW the God of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob well. They only had love and servitude to OUR LORD, WHICH ART IN HEAVEN.

After the king confronted them, he became angry & commanded the furnace to burn 7 times hotter than normal. The flames blazed so hot, that when the kings mighty men went to open & throw them in = it killed the soldiers dead. This then caused the bound Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego to fall into the flames.

But LOW & BEHOLD == HOW MIGHTY IS OUR GOD–

— King Nebuchadnezzar was amazed to see 4 walking in the flames (instead of just the 3) completely unhurt or even singed by the flames. King Nebuchadnezzar himself called the 4th figure to be as “THE SON OF GOD.”

Faith is a belief in something that causes you to obey.

When we have faith in OUR GOD, as small as the mustard seed =

= (Matthew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you) =

= WE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS.

But clearly: Shadrach, Meshach, & Abednego’s faith was much bigger than the mustard seed grain = it had grown into the full tree.

(Luke 13:19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.)

These three men’s faith was so strong, they were willing keep it unto death. Because of that faith, the Son of God abode with them even in the depths of despair. Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they LOVED NOT THEIR LIVES UNTO THE DEATH.

We can have that strength of love, servitude, obedience, & FAITH; BUT we have to trust Him = like Peter walking on water with Christ.

KEEP OUR EYES & FOCUS ON CHRIST: then we can walk on water, move mountains, command demons to flee, feed the multitudes, & be ABLE TO STAND IN THE TRIBULATIONS. =

=amen

THOU ART THE POTTER, I AM THE CLAY by: Amanda Beamer

Many times when we fail at something God commands us to do like fasting, we go in full force without acknowledging God first.

Start small and praise each individual milestone you overcome unto God. Its through God’s grace only that we over come any sin, like compulsion to eat smoke & more.

We die to self daily by denying the flesh of what it craves daily. Each day we deny just a little bit more through God’s grace to overcome these obstacles.

It’s by God’s grace only that I have overcome some major sins in my life & He continues to perfect me. As with me, He can do for anyone.

(Isaiah 64:8) But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

If we allow Him, He can make us new.

As with the potter and the clay on the potter’s wheel= sometimes we have to be tore down several times before we can become completely perfect.

If one crack in the vessel is spotted, it will be tore down to start anew to eventually create a masterpiece.

Our Father, which art in Heaven, were to leave that one minute crack in His created pottery =

= It would shatter to pieces when sent into the urn (fire) to be burned and cured.

All the trials & tribulations we go through are not to tear us down to keep us down.

They are to help prune & perfect us —

— to create a beautiful masterpiece that is worthy enough to present on the judgement seat of Christ & present unto God the Father & bring into the family of Christ.

GOD BLESS

A STORY OF A LOST SOUL by: Amanda Beamer

A STORY OF A LOST SOUL ———————————————————————————————————-Oh how lonely you must feel. I feel sorry for you, because deep down, you know that your going to hell is true. There is a void in your heart that you cannot explain. Daily you seek quick fixes and Band-Aids to fix the emptiness you feel in your heart. In the moment they work, but when you are left to your own devices and your own mind = the depression sets in on what tomorrow brings. There are people daily being persecuted and murdered for serving & loving God almighty & believing with full faith in Him. Can you honestly say that about Satan. Are you willing to die for his cause of evil & destruction upon the earth. If given the opportunity = I would die for my faith in Christ; because I know His love abounds to save us from all condemnation. Are you willing to die for Satan, which is the one who brought the condemnation upon this earth in the first place and go the the eternal lake of fire that was built for him. Choose today whom you will serve. I serve a God that brings life & peace & a promise of Eternal life with Him in heaven with no sin & no death. If you deny Christ, you are not given that promise, but to live with whom you serve = Lucifer for all eternity. You can laugh all you want = but be thankful that someone is willing to give you the un-adulterated truth out of love for your eternal soul. Because it is not my desire (as with Christ) that any should perish = but you have to be willing to follow Him.

John 3:16-18King James Version (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

God bless & know this = I’m praying for you.

I hope you make the right choice.
