Please!!!

There's something I want to share with you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's regarding someone who truly needs prayer and help.

I received an e-mail from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), and I decided to share it with you (I copied/pasted):

Lynn,

This situation just got worse for Christian mom Asia Bibi.

As we await the Pakistani Supreme Court's decision on the appeal of her death sentence, angry Islamic radicals are demanding she be hanged.

They are threatening the justices if they do not execute this Christian mom of 5.

Last week, Pakistan's Supreme Court heard the final appeal for Asia Bibi's life.

Bibi was convicted under Pakistan's harsh blasphemy laws. Her trial was fraught with errors and even the justices have demanded real evidence from the prosecution.

Yet Islamic extremists aren't interested in facts or the lack of proof.

They're enraged at the very possibility of this Christian's life being spared. They're taking to the streets, demanding her death and threatening consequences - even against the justices - if she's released.

Asia Bibi has asked for prayer.

We must pray, but we must also act. Time is running out. Asia Bibi has committed no crime. She should not die.


Jay Sekulow
ACLJ Chief Counsel

Wow! 

To me, it's terrible that Muslims would want Asia Bibi to be hanged/murdered because she's Christian, even though she didn't do anything to hurt anyone.  After all, Asia Bibi has been imprisoned for many years now, due to having offered water to drink to Muslim women who were working outside and it was extremely hot weather.  The Muslim women had her arrested, because she was Christian and not Muslim, and they hadn't wanted her to offer them water to drink.

Asia Bibi truly needs prayer.

Thinking of this, made me think of 1 Thessalonians 5:17, "Pray without ceasing.".

Amen! Pray without ceasing.

We all need to pray for Asia Bibi, continuously.  

I pray... without ceasing. 

Please... also sign the petition by clicking on the link, in the message.  

Even though people from other countries, like me... was able to sign the petitions in the past, it seems that only Americans can now sign the petitions.

If you can, sign the petition, please sign it. 

Also, please pray for Asia Bibi.

If you do, I believe God will bless you.


Until next time...

Sometimes? Always!

Today, is a special day, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

Being our day of worship, I do go to worship with my church family.

However, I also enjoy using music to worship.

Here is music by Gaither Vocal Band entitled, Sometimes It Takes A Mountain; please click on this link, so you can listen to and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYsvV-Nz9j8.  The lyrics are below.

Sometimes It Takes A Mountain

I faced a mountain,
That I never faced before
That's why I'm calling on the Lord
I know it's been awhile,
Lord please hear my prayer
I need you like I never have before.

Sometimes it takes a mountain
Sometimes a troubled sea
Sometimes it takes a desert
To get a hold of me
Your Love is so much stronger
Then whatever troubles me
Sometimes it takes a mountain
To trust you and believe

Far from you Jesus
I thought I could control
Whatever life would throw my way
But this I will admit
Has brought me to my knees


I need you Lord and I'm not ashamed to say
Sometimes it takes a mountain
Sometimes a troubled sea
Sometimes it takes a desert
To get a hold of me

Your Love is so much stronger
Then whatever troubles me
Sometimes it takes a mountain
To trust you and believe

Sometimes it takes a mountain
To trust you and believe


Sometimes it takes a mountain
Sometimes a troubled sea
Sometimes it takes a desert
To get a hold of me

Your Love is so much stronger
Then whatever troubles me
Sometimes it takes a mountain
To trust you and believe

Sometimes it takes a mountain
To trust you and believe

Amen!

Trusting Him, is so very important.  And, so is believing upon Him.

Not just sometimes... but, always!

Just as we read, in John 3:16, "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.".

Amen!  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.

How wonderful it is, that we cannot perish, and have everlasting life, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Thank You, Lord!

Do All...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be letting you know about some things.

It's not about anything that happened to me.  Nor, is it anything that relates to other people in the world, in different countries.

It's about what I've done.  Yes, I've watched movies!

Here are some movies I've watched:

*  Rocky, starring Sylvester Stallone, Talia Shire and other actors.  If you would like to check out this American sports drama film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky.  I enjoyed the movie.

Rocky II, starring Sylvester Stallone, Burt Young and other actors.  To check out this American sports drama film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_II.  Since it was a movie that was like a continuation of the first one, I enjoyed it.

Rocky III, starring Sylvester Stallone, Carl Weathers and other actors.  Would you like to check out this American sports drama film?  If so, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_III.  As another continuation of the previous movies, I enjoyed it.

Rocky IV, starring Sylvester Stallone, Brigitte Nielson and other actors.  Click on this link, to check out this American sports drama filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_IV.  Yes, I enjoyed it, since it was like another continuation from the previous movies.

Rocky V, starring Sylvester Stallone, Tommy Morrison and other actors.  Please, click on this link, if you want to check out this American sports drama filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_V.  As I'm sure you realize, I enjoyed this movie.

Wow!  Imagine all these similar movies!  Just so you know, I've seen most of them, more than once.

Does this mean I enjoy sports films? 

Not always.  Especially, since I don't really like boxing, because I don't like seeing people hit each other.

However, I like Sylvester Stallone as an actor.  He works hard, and has trained himself in many ways.  Plus much discussion was done, and he didn't have heart problems, even though he had to work hard physically during the movies.

Thinking of that, made me think of Philippians 2:14, "Do all things without murmurings and disputings:".

Amen!  Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

Hopefully, Sylvester Stallone is Christian.  I don't know for sure, but hopefully he has trusted in/believed upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  For if he has, then he will have gained salvation and everlasting life.

Just as I have done.

Have you?

If you have not gained salvation, then when your life ends here on earth, you will not see me in Heaven, with God.  Instead, you will spend eternity in Hell, separated from God, with NO chance of escape.

Come to Christ, today.

Tomorrow, may be too late.


Until next time...

Pakistan?!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I will share something with you.

It's something that I feel everyone needs to know.  Even if they aren't a member of Facebook (FB).  Even though that is where I read the information I feel you need to know.

The picture with information was posted on FB by a group page called, British Freedom Of Speech News, who posted the article and pic entitled, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan  Will call upon the UN to outlaw Critisism of Islam in any formhttps://www.facebook.com/205697173609270/photos/a.205701653608822/255638135281840/?type=3&theater.

In case you couldn't click on the link and read the posting, I decided to share what was stated with you (I copied/pasted):

Pakistan’s recent elections didn’t just see hundreds of candidates backed by jihad terror groups and the rise of an anti-blasphemy party, now the newly elected Prime Minister of Pakistan has come out swinging in defense of Pakistan’s infamous blasphemy laws.
In his first address to the senate since being sworn in, Prime Minister Imran Khan vowed to take the matter [of blasphemy] to the United Nations, saying that few in the West understand the pain caused to Muslims by such activities.
Why is Khan taking the matter to the United Nations? Because:
Geert Wilders, a Dutch lawmaker known for his fierce criticism of Islam, plans to hold a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest later this year. Physical depictions of the Prophet are forbidden in Islam.
Blasphemy laws are rooted in the Sharia, pushed by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Now Pakistan, the country most known for its brutal blasphemy laws, has joined OIC efforts on an international scale to shut down freedom of expression that causes “pain” to Muslims.
This is a very critical point for Westerners to understand, since it is the root of “anti-Islamophobia” drives in the West. Islam must not be criticized because it is hurtful to Muslims. As Khan has stated, “few in the West understand the pain caused to Muslims by such activities” as planned by Wilders. But it doesn’t stop there. One must not scrutinize Islam, produce satirical depictions of Muhammad (as has been often done with Christ), or point out Islam’s human rights abuses, its intolerance, its relegation of women to an inferior status, FGM, honor killings, jihad violence and the call to wage bloody jihad in order to conquer non-Muslim states, and the like.
One must not even call out the hate being preached in mosques, or call for the monitoring of mosques due to their high incidence of hate preaching. It is all hurtful to Muslims; it is therefore “Islamophobic.”
“Pakistan condemns planned anti-Islam cartoon contest,” Indian Express, August 27, 2018:
Pakistan’s senate has passed a resolution condemning an anti-Islam cartoon contest planned by a far-right Dutch lawmaker, in one of the first actions taken by the assembly since last month’s elections.
In his first address to the senate since being sworn in, Prime Minister Imran Khan vowed to take the matter to the United Nations, saying that few in the West understand the pain caused to Muslims by such activities.
Geert Wilders, a Dutch lawmaker known for his fierce criticism of Islam, plans to hold a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest later this year.
Physical depictions of the Prophet are forbidden in Islam……


Here's the pic that was with that posting:


To me, very amazing!  Why?

Well, it seems that Muslims speak a lot about Blasphemy Laws... as they have in Sharia Law.  Just as this article stated.

What is blasphemy?  Here's what I copied/pasted from Google:

blas·phe·my
ˈblasfəmē/
noun
  1. the act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk.
    "he was detained on charges of blasphemy"
    synonyms:profanitysacrilege, irreligion, irreverence, taking the Lord's name in vain, swearingcurse, cursing, impietydesecration
    archaicexecration
    "the nuns would punish me at least three times a week for my blasphemy"

Sigh... 

Why is it that Muslims only feel that blasphemy is done towards them? 

It's also done, for Christianity.  Yet, many people don't care about that.

But, God cares.

Thinking about that, made me think of Revelation 13:6-8, " And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.".

Amen!   And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Please don't think that I do anything regarding blasphemy.  For I don't.  

I speak truth.  And, I worship Him, for my name is in the book of life of the Lamb.  Just as God wants me and each of you, to do and have done.

If you speak truth, and worship Him, then God will bless you.

Thank You, Lord!

Marijuana/Cannabis is Legal...

There's something I need to discuss, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  It's about something that happened, yesterday.

It's something that many people are happy about.  However, it's something that I am truly upset and sorry to hear happened.

What was it?

It's something our Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau did.  It's something that Justin Trudeau told everyone on our Canadian news daily, during the election time, when he was hoping to become elected.  He said he would make Marijuana... legal.

Yes, Justin Trudeau was elected, as you know.  But, as I've stated in the past, I believe Justin Trudeau is trying to hurt Canada.  And, I believe he has done something that will hurt Canada, and Canadians.

Yesterday, was the day when he made Marijuana legal.  Of course, it seems people don't want to call it Marijuana, so most people seem to now call it... Cannabis.

I'll be sharing a few articles with you:

*  Here is a link for the article by nationalpost.com that is entitled, Canada will make marijuana legal on Oct. 17, Justin Trudeau sayshttps://nationalpost.com/cannabis/newsalert-feds-will-make-marijuana-legal-in-canada-on-oct-17-trudeau-says.

Did you read the article?  I won't share the whole thing with you, but will share a bit (I copied/pasted):

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says recreational marijuana will be legal in Canada as of Oct. 17.

*  Here is a link for the article by cbc.ca that is entitled, Cannabis is legal in Canada - here's what you need to knowhttps://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/marijuana-faq-legalization-need-to-know-1.4862207.

I'll share with you a bit of what was stated (I copied/pasted):

Recreational marijuana is legal as of today, but the vision of what a pot-permissive Canada looks like remains somewhat hazy.
There's still a lot we don't know, including what will happen to the illicit dispensaries that popped up in cities across the country in recent years. But here's a look at what we do know as Canadian consumers buy legal cannabis for the first time. 
*  Here is a link for the article by cnn.com that is entitled, Canada just legalized recreational pot. Here's what you need to knowhttps://www.cnn.com/2018/10/17/health/canada-legalizes-recreational-marijuana/index.html.

(CNN)People in Canada are cheering, enduring long lines and honking their car horns in support as the country's first marijuana dispensaries open their doors Wednesday.

Sigh...

Those articles gave information and tried to let people know what they could do and/or what they needed to know.

Do I sound happy?  I'm sure you think I'm not.  I'm hurt.

Yes, I'm not happy.  After all, people need to be sober.

Yes, I realize that some people may comment and say that if they aren't drinking alcohol, then they are sober, even if they are using Marijuana/Cannabis.

If people think this, I do not agree.  After all, using Marijuana/Cannabis will actually make people... high.

Being high, won't make them different from being drunk.

Thinking of this, made me think of 1 Peter 5:8, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:".

Amen!  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:.

Everyone who is truly a born again Christian, will want to do what God told us, and won't want to sin.  But, many people will sin... and use Marijuana/Cannabis.

Knowing that years ago, when I was driving the school bus, and was hit by a tractor-trailer (truck) driver, that driver was convicted in court for failing to stop at a stop sign, that he should have stopped at.  However, after leaving the courtroom, he let me and a friend of mine know that he had been taking a drug to keep him awake and had drank several beers. 

Did that make me happy?  No.

After that, when my deceased husband was alive, we were following a convertible car, with the roof down, and saw the couple smoking Marijuana.  Did the man drive well?  No.

Do you think I will be happy driving, now?  No.

I believe that though all those people who are so happy to now be able to use Marijuana/Cannabis legally, there will be many people who may be hurt.  Hurt by those who are high... in various ways. Like driving.

Please realize, that years ago, I was physically hurt by that drunk driver who had done drugs, illegally... and had not been checked by the police for alcohol, that he explained he had used.

Please realize that I am so upset that Marijuana/Cannabis is legal to be used now, because if I am ever hurt again, by someone doing drugs, I would prefer my life to end.  For, I do not want to suffer any worse.

After all, Satan, the devil... always wants people to suffer.

Please pray with me, that people will not become hurt.

Thank you.

May God bless you.


Until next time...

Judgment?

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'm going to let you know about something.  And, someone.  Well, a couple of people.  :)

The people I am letting you know about are fellow ChristiansMark Grosse lives here in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, along with his wife.  They both post on Facebook (FB), but don't just share postings.

Mark writes information, makes YouTube videos, and shares it on FB.  He and his wife work together quite often. :)

I must admit that I enjoy reading and watching videos that Mark and his wife have created.  So, I decided to share a video with you.

Here is a link for a fairly new YouTube video that Mark created that is entitled, The Confusion Between Judging and Bold Rebuking, Warning or Correctionhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buG5xSIGh90&feature=youtu.be.

Hopefully, you clicked on the link and watched and/or listened to the video.  If you did, then you will know what was stated regarding judgment.

Just as the video states, we should not judge in the way that God will judge us.  We shouldn't judge if anyone is a born again Christian, or not.  God will judge that.

However, just as the video tells us, we are to judge things relating to righteous judgment.

To be honest, when I heard what was stated, I thought of  John 7:24, "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment."... and afterwards heard it being quoted on the video.  :)

Amen!  Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

How wonderful it is that Mark and his wife, do wonderful things, like writing and creating videos that people can read and/or listen to, to become knowledgeable regarding what God expects from us.  Knowing that they are doing what they can to help people know and understand God's Word, the Bible, I believe God will bless them.

I read the entire Bible.

Do you?

If you don't, I would suggest you do.  For, if you read God's Word, then you will understand that what people like Mark, his wife, and other people like me, do what God feels we need to do... to help others.  And, speak truth.

If you do read the Bible, then I believe you will become extremely knowledgeable, since you'll be educated.  And God will bless you.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...

Temple Mount... & Request...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be sharing something with you.

It's not something regarding Canada.  Nor, most other countries in the world. 

It's regarding Israel.  Actually, it's regarding something within Jerusalem

I've been to Jerusalem.  I must admit, I truly loved being there.

However, when I saw this article that is actually asking people to sign a petition, I did sign it.  Hopefully, you will also.

Why?

Well, here is a link to the article by israel365.com that is entitled, The Temple Mount Should Be A Meeting Place For God and All Of His Peoplehttps://www.israel365.com/prayer-temple-mount/?utm_source=uwi&utm_medium=email_-_ext&utm_campaign=temple&utm_content=10.09.2018.

Did you read the article?  Here's what it stated (I copied/pasted):

Muslims are free to pray on the Temple Mount. However, Christians and Jews may only visit the site as tourists. They are forbidden from singing, praying or making any kind of religious displays. 

Tell the world, “Jewish and Christian prayer should be allowed on the Temple Mount - today and forever.”

Please...  make sure you click on that link.  Not just to read the article, but also so you can sign the petition.

Even though I live in Canada, I was able to sign the petition, so I'm sure you also can.

You see, the article also stated (I copied):

Our petition will be sent to the Israeli Parliament, United Nations and the White House, and shared online to let the world know just how many people believe in free and open access to the site that once housed God's palace.

Please... support of the Jewish and Christian people's right to pray on the Temple Mount... just as what was said on the article in the area where you can sign the petition.

I decided to use the entire Bible verse, of which a short part was shown on the article.

I'm referring to... Isaiah 56:7, "Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.".

Amen!  Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

To me, that would be wonderful if all people could enter that building and pray.

Please... pray and decide to sign the petition.

Please... share the petition article with other people, and pray that others will also decide to sign the petition.

Please... pray that any/all Jewish and/or Christian people will be able to go to the Temple Mount... and pray there.

After all, when I was there, I was able to see the outside of the building, but the Muslims wouldn't allow me or anyone else who wasn't Islamic, to enter into it. 

Being outside, all we were able to do was to look around in the area outside the building.  However, Muslims were able to do whatever they wanted to, at and inside the Temple Mount.

Thank you.  May God bless you.. and/or everyone for helping to have this happen.

May God bless you.


Until next time...
