Real Duty!

I came across something I thought I should share with you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  It has to do with a fellow Christian.

Who is it?

Jim Caviezel.

Here's the article about him, by youngcons.com entitled, 'Passion of Christ' Actor:  Hollywood Turned It's Back On Me Because Of My Faith...:  http://www.youngcons.com/passion-of-christ-actor-hollywood-turned-its-back-on-me-because-of-my-faith/?ref=FacebookPost.

The article contains a video that is shared on YouTube that is entitled, Powerful Testimony by Jim Caviezel on the Passion of the Christ.  Click on this link, to watch and/or listen to it:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=w4bY5n6Wcvo.

This video was fabulous.  Not just what was shown.  But, also about what was said.

In case you couldn't click on the link and read the article, I copied/pasted some of the information:

“All of a sudden I stopped being one of five most popular actors in the studio, and I hadn’t done anything wrong. I just played Jesus,” Caviezel told Polish film critic Lukasz Adamski.

Plus... this was written:

Caviezel said he didn’t believe it was a coincidence that he played the role when he was 33, the same age as Jesus Christ was, and that his initials were the same.

In addition, he said something I thought was wonderful:

But Caviezel said that Hollywood’s rejection didn’t put him off his faith. Just the opposite, he said, it made it stronger.

“I’ve never forgotten that the name of Jesus is above all else,” he said. “It is also the most controversial name of all times. Love is controversial and he impersonates love. Jesus was telling the Romans about love and they killed him because of that. ‘Who is that man to tell me what kind of person I’m supposed to be?’ – they asked arrogantly. He was betrayed by his own people and abandoned by everyone. My duty was not only to show it all on the screen. My real duty is to live in accordance with the gospel every day and to give witness to the truth.”

Wow!

Amen! 

Hallelujah!

It made me feel so very happy hearing Jim Caviezel say what he said.  After all, he truly knows truth.

Just like we read, in John 8:32, "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Amen... ye shall know truth and truth shall make you free.

Just as it has done to Jim Caviezel.  And, any/all other people who have gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ (Acts 16:31).

Jesus always spoke truth.  He taught truth.  And, let us know that after his life ended, the Holy Spirit, would be with us, to help educate and lead us in many ways, including knowing truth.

Do you read God's Word, the Bible?

If not, do it, now.

If you do, you will be truly blessed.


Until next time...

I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You...

On Life with Lynnie (LwL), I usually mention what is done on days like today. 

Since it's SONday, it's a day of worship, when we go and meet with church family.  Yes, we worship together in various ways... including through music.

A Facebook (FB) friend of mine, A... shared some music I adored.  I enjoyed it so much, that I thought I would share it with you, today.  Even though it is not a hymn, it is Christian music.

The song is by Alan Jackson on YouTube and is entitled, I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URiZ_GAMUKs.  The lyrics are below.

I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You

If I survey all the good things that come to me from above
If I could count all the blessings from the storehouse of love
I'd simply ask for the favor of him beyond Mortal King
And I'm sure that He'd grant it again
I want to stroll over Heaven with you some glad day
When all our troubles and heartaches are vanished away
Then we'll enjoy the beauty where all things are new
I want to stroll over Heaven with you

So many places of beauty we long to see here below
But times and treasures have kept us from making plans as you know
But come the morning of the rapture together we'll stand a new
Then we'll stroll over Heaven with you
I want to stroll over Heaven with you some glad day
When all our troubles and heartaches are vanished away
Then we'll enjoy the beauty where all things are new
I want to stroll over Heaven with you

I want to stroll over Heaven with you

Amen!  I want to stroll over Heaven... with you.

Thinking about how we can stroll over heaven, made me think about Luke 23:39-43, "And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise."

Just as we read, a man who was the second (2nd) person being crucified was next to Jesus, when He was being crucified.  He asked Jesus to save Himself, plus him and the third (3rd) person being crucified at that time.  The third (3rd) person rebuked. Then, Jesus said to the man who requested ... Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Wow!  Jesus did it.

Where is paradise?

It's Heaven.

Some day, when our lives end here on earth, we have a chance to go and spend eternity with our Lord, in Heaven.

How?

All we need to do is trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ... and we will gain salvation (Acts 16:31), to be able to spend eternity in Heaven with Him.

I've done it.

Have you?

If not, please do it now.  Don't wait.  Tomorrow may be too late.

If you have, I'll look forward to seeing you and spending eternity in Heaven with God... and you.


Until next time...

Past... Today... Future...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'd like to let you know about something, today.  I'd like to let you know what I've been doing.

I've watched movies!

Here's some movies I've watched:

Hour of the Gun, starring James Garner, Jason Robards and Robert Ryan.  If you'd like to check out this western film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hour_of_the_Gun.  Although I didn't like what was happening in the movie, I liked the ending.

Buck and the Preacher, starring Sidney Poitier, Harry Belafonte and Ruby Dee.  To check out this western film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buck_and_the_Preacher.  Even though this sounded like it may be a Christian film, it wasn't.

Macho Callahan, starring David Janssen, Lee J. Cobb and many other actors.  Click on this link, if you'd like to check out this American-Mexican civil war filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macho_Callahan.  Due to sin, I didn't really like this movie.

Valdez is Coming, starring Burt Lancaster, Susan Clark and Jon Cypher.  Please click on this link, if you'd like to check out this American western filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valdez_Is_Coming.  Even though I didn't like the story, I watched the movie.

Dark Command, starring Roy Rogers, John Wayne and other actors.  Would you like to check out this western film?  If so, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Command.  Even though this movie seemed to have historical troubles, I enjoyed watching this movie.

Even though all of these films weren't truly historical, there was some history shown. 

To me, it seems that in today's era, people don't seem to recall things from the past.  Many don't seem to want to hear about it.  And, don't think anything from the past will happen, again.

Thinking of this, made me think of Ecclesiastes 1:11, "There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after."

Just as we read in today's Bible verse, there is no remembrance of former things... from the past.  Neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come, again... for those that shall come in the future.

When I think of the evilness that happened many, many years ago, it makes me think that similar evilness is growing in today's era.  I believe that some things that happened in the past, will happen again, in the future.

Think about it.

There are some things happening now, that happened in the past, yet no one seemed to think it would ever happen again.  And, it seems like many people don't see anything wrong with what's happening and developing.

Pray about it.

If you do, I believe God will reveal the truth to you.


Until next time...

Help...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be discussing something, today. 

It's something that is happening to people in the Philippines.

Although there were several online postings, I decided to share with you a posting by 1cbn.com entitled, Islamic War Rages in Philippines as ISIS Overruns City, Murders Christianshttp://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/world/2017/may/islamic-war-raging-in-philippines-as-jihadists-overrun-city-murder-christians?cpid=socclub&adbsc=social_700club_daily72673607&adbid=10155273019861668&adbpl=fb&adbpr=6445306667

Please, click on the link, and read the article.

If you couldn't, you won't read the whole article, but I will share some with you.  Here's some information posted (I copied/pasted):

Islamic radicals who have besieged much of a southern city in the Philippines are trying to establish a regional branch of ISIS in that country.

The Philippine military says the radicals include foreign fighters and local gunmen.

Here is more stated (I copied/pasted):

Marawi is located on the island of Mindanao, where more than 100 people have died and 70,000 have fled since terrorists launched their attack.

Among the dead are nine Christians who were murdered merely for being followers of Jesus Christ.

And, more stated (yes, I copied/pasted):

The island of Mindanao has long been a base for local Islamic radicals in the Philippines, and government officials say they're also getting outside help.

Philippine soldiers have taken control of about 70 percent of the city.

The head of the Philippine military says three Malaysians, an Indonesian and a possible Arab extremist were killed before they could to murder an entire Christian village in an audacious ISIS-style plot.

Gen. Eduardo Ano says the jihadists plotted to set Marawi ablaze and kill as many Christians as possible in nearby Iligan city on Ramadan to create fear by mimicking the terror seen by the world in Syria and Iraq.

Sigh...

Just as the article states, Islamic radicals in the Philippines, are getting outside help.

Help from people who want to help what they call radicals, do what they want them to do.

Although this upsets me, knowing that there are people throughout the world helping Muslims who claim to be ISIS, do what their god has told them to do... meaning, convert everyone in the world, or cut off their heads.  Murder, is what they want to do.

Yes, they are getting help.  But, only from some people.

Not from God.

For, our God... is not their god.

God helps us, who belong to Him.

Thinking about how He helps me, and others as well, made me think about Psalm 121:2, "My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth."

Amen... My help comes from the Lord, who made Heaven and earth!

Does He help you?

Please realize that He will only help you, if you belong to Him.

How can you belong to Him?

It's truly simple.  All you need to do, is gain salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

If you haven't yet gained salvation, do it today.

Tomorrow, may be too late.


Until next time...

Do It!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be sharing something with you.  It's something that I feel is really important.

What is it?

It's an article with a video by israelvideonetwork.com that is entitled, Do Not Stop Sharing This Until Every Person Who Cares About Women Sees Thishttp://www.israelvideonetwork.com/do-not-stop-sharing-this-until-every-person-who-cares-about-women-sees-this/.

Please... click on that link, and read the article. 

I can't share all the information quoted, but I will share some what is stated on the article (I copied/pasted):

The struggle for women’s rights in the World of Islam is perhaps the most alarming human rights issue in the entire world.   

The concepts of honor and violence in the Islamic religion are often combined in a horrific manner.

This untold story is about the daily oppression of women across the world.

Educated and empowered women are perhaps the greatest threat to male dominance in the Islamic world. Muslim women are subjugated and persecuted and deprived of their humanity.

The silence must be broken. The whole world must wake up!

Amen! 

Silence must be broken! 

The whole world must wake up!

Believe me when I say that the video linked on the article was absolutely wonderful. 

If you only want to watch the video, here is a link to it, on YouTube and it's entitled, Honor Diaries - exclusive extended cliphttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-zWq_Xzw_g.

If you watched and/or just listened to the video, you'll see that women from many countries speak up/out, regarding the need to give more women rights within our world.

By doing what they did and by saying what they said, they did good.  Even if their god was not our God.

After all, God wants us to do good.

Just as we read, in James 4:17, "Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin."

Amen!  The person who knows to do good, and doesn't do it, is then... sinning.

This means that we all need to speak up. 

Speak out. 

Speak truth.

And, we need to do it so we can help educate people in any/all areas of the world. 

If you do all you can to help make this work, then you will be blessed.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...

Happy & Sad...

Hopefully, you read Life with Lynnie (LwL), yesterday.

If you did, you'll know that I was so very happy reading an article and watching a video, regarding USA's President Donald Trump, who was in Israel

Hopefully, you're aware how he stood, prayed and shared a written prayer request, at the Wailing Wall/Western Wall, in the Old City of Jerusalem, Israel.  It's located at the Temple Mount.

As the Bible verse said that was used on LwL yesterday... Psalm 122:6, "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee."

There is another reason I believe it is important that Donald Trump did what he did that day.

Abram was told by the Lord, that he was to be renamed, Israel... and Israel would become a nation.  He was also told that He will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curseth thee.

Just as we read, in Genesis 12:1-3, "Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."

Aww... how wonderful Donald Trump was!

He made me proud of him, for doing what God would have him do.

Yes, I'm truly happy for Americans

But, I'm truly unhappy for Canadians.  Like me.

Why?

Our Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau... is NOT in support of Israel. 

Justin Trudeau is NOT in support of Jewish people.  Nor, is he in support of Christians.

Justin Trudeau IS in support of Islam.

As I've said in the past, while dealing with election time, he let Muslims know over news issues and other times, that he would give them more benefits, here in Canada.

So, I am truly sad.

Please, pray.

Not just for Donald Trump.

Please, also pray for Justin Trudeau. 

Pray that Justin Trudeau will become a born again Christian, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

In addition, please pray for Canada, for our nation needs to be blessed... and, not cursed.  And, Justin Trudeau will be responsible for this, just as we read in today's Bible verse.

May God bless you, for praying.


Until next time...

Pray & Prosper...

I'll be letting you know about something, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), that I'm truly happy about!

Even though I'm Canadian and live in Canada, USA is important to me, since I lived there for a few years, as a child.

So, I must admit, I was truly happy about what I read concerning USA's President, Donald Trump!

A Christian friend on Facebook (FB), T shared a couple of links, that made me happy.  So, I'm sharing them with you!

The first post I saw was by townhall.com and is entitled, Trump Visits Church of the Holy Sepulchure; Western Wallhttps://townhall.com/tipsheet/christinerousselle/2017/05/22/trump-visits-church-of-the-holy-sepulchre-western-wall-n2330234

Did you click on the link and read it?

If you read it, you will have read more than what I'm now sharing (I copied/pasted):

Shortly after arriving in Israel, President Donald Trump and his wife Melania made visits to some of the world's holiest sites: The Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Western Wall. Trump is the first sitting president to visit both of these sites.

This made me happy!

Then, my same FB friend shared a link to a YouTube video entitled, Donald Trump's historic visit and prayer at the wallhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-3PD9b3k-Q.

Wow!  Did this make me happy!

Why?

Well, if you watched the video, you will have seen how Donald Trump was at the Western Wall, in the Old City of Jerusalem, in Israel.

If you aren't sure what the Western Wall is, please click on this link, to read about it:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Wall.  However, you may know it as the Wailing Wall.

Aww... I have to admit, my heart felt so good!

After all, Donald Trump stood at the Wailing Wall/Western Wall that is located at the Temple Mount area. 

He stood at the wall, touching it and praying.  Then, he submitted a prayer message into the wall area opening, just as many people do, there.  Mainly Jewish people.

Hallelujah!

Why am I so happy?

God's Word, the Bible tells us in, Psalm 122:6, "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee."

Amen!!!

We are all to pray for the peace of Jerusalem:  they shall prosper that love thee.

This means we are to pray Jerusalem.

And, be in support of Israel by praying, also.

I must admit, I am truly happy Donald Trump did this.  For by doing this, he did what God wanted him to do. 

And, now...he... and USA will prosper.

For this, we all need to thank Him.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
