I had to sit and pray……….talking to God about this murder of this sweet lady that lived in our area of Albuquerque……I remember seeing her around……I saw the story this morning once again about the murder of Jacqueline “Jacque” Vigil who was murdered in her driveway here on the West Side just a few days before this past Thanksgiving.
I am grieving once again for her and her wonderful family. The Lord is showing me once again we people do not mourn enough, we do not cry enough….we forget to quickly. We go back to our own little lives and personal causes, how about the families that continue to lose their loved ones though senseless acts of murder here in Albuquerque?
We live in a very dangerous city that needs Jesus. We need missionaries to go out and reach people into the depths of hell. I promise you, sadly, if this hate does not end, if this division does not end, if this attitude that politics is everything continues, if Church attendance continues to slide, if the Satan continues to have his way with many, we will be at the end of this Country we all love. It will continue to go to hell.
Jacque was just walking out to her car to go to the gym…… Have we forgotten how to grieve?
The Albuquerque Journal has a story on Jacque and her family on the front page. Reporter Colleen Heild does and excellent job.Story Here
I know Satan did not want me to post this story as I broke out in a cold sweat as I typed. I started to itch. Satan does not want people to know the true reason why all this evil is happening, he is having his way with many, as here in American we make all these problems political. Look at the mess we are in as a Country, it stinks to “High Heaven” I have never seen our Country is such a mess. During the Vietnam War, we were divided, during the Nixon Watergate years was an awful time in America….but this, in my mind, is much worse. Sadly, I do not see any end of this hate and division.
This past week I had a talk with a Bernalillo County Deputy Sheriff. He said that the very root of the problem in our county and city is that Satan is having his way with families, Satan has ripped up the fabric of the family, not just here, but all over America. Children are living with relatives, grandpa and grandma, aunts and uncles, cousins, brothers and sister being split up by divorce, drugs, booze, gambling, etc….
Jesus is the answer not politics. I have never received so many emails of political hate in my life! I am a registered Independent. I stand with Jesus and no political party. My heart has been broken by promises of Republicans and Democrats. We are a non-partisan ministry. I have had both Republicans and Democrats lie to me right on the air when I was in full-time radio. I vote for Jesus, I vet them with the Bible.
I am talking to so many people my age, 64, and older that are so very, very concerned for their children and grandchildren. Our only hope is in Jesus, that people will accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
We as a Country expect God to bless us?????? America, Bless God! Come to Jesus!
We need to build bridges of love and trust in Jesus and then a bridge that can bear the weight of the truth of God. Without the love and truth of Jesus there is chaos.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another:
just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
By this all people will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another.
|“Hear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you. Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.”
|Several years ago I traveled to Ghana, west Africa, to give wheelchairs and Bibles to homeless disabled people who lived in the filthy slums. A disabled boy who lived in a box by a trash heap said, “God has blessed people in your country so much; why are so many unhappy?” Another said, “Welcome to our country, where our God is bigger than your God.” I heard it time and again in Ghana: “We have to trust God. We have no other hope.”
Don’t think I’m glorifying the poor and needy of Africa. This isn’t a snobby one-upmanship over whose Purple Heart medals shine the brightest. They are more like us than we realize. They too want what they do not have, and have what they do not want. The difference is in the way they look at God.
God always seems bigger to those who need him the most. Spiritual and physical poverty is the tool God uses to help us need him more. Hardships press us up against him. It’s a universal truth we all learned in the old Sunday school song: “We are weak and he is strong.”
Who are the poor and needy? People in Africa? The homeless? The disabled? It is you if you see yourself as empty and impoverished. That’s not a bad position in which to be. When you cry, “Have mercy on me, O Lord!” you are in a great position. God seems bigger when we, in our eyes, seem poor.
I lift up my soul to you today, Lord. I am poor and needy, empty and destitute, without you. As I make myself small in my eyes today, please help me to see how big you are.
Past Post From November of 2019:
QUOTE OF THE YEAR! I think many take a blind eye to evil and “just hope evil goes away.” I have been preaching for years behind the microphone in radio and tv and from the pulpit and from FGGAM the REASONS for evil, this is not time for a “high school pep rally” it is a time for REVIVAL and intense PRAYER, spiritual warfare is intense in America. So many in Albuquerque, even many Christians, are taking a blind eye to the evil that covers the city, the killing of innocent people. abortions and homicides, suicides, drug overdoses, and parents killing their own! So many young people are losing their lives in this city because of evil.
I say again my friends, you cannot legislate morality! It is a heart issue, hearts need to be softened and given to Jesus!
Evil is real – and powerful. It has to be fought, not explained away, not fled. And God is against evil all the way. So each of us has to decide where we stand, how we’re going to live our lives. We can try to persuade ourselves that evil doesn’t exist; live for ourselves and wink at evil. We can say that it isn’t so bad after all, maybe even try to call it fun by clothing it in silks and velvets. We can compromise with it, keep quiet about it and say it’s none of our business. Or we can work on God’s side, listen for His orders on strategy against the evil, no matter how horrible it is, and know that He can transform it.
IMPACTFUL WORDS FROM CATHERINE MARSHALL!!!
From Billy Graham:
Where does evil come from? The Bible admittedly doesn’t answer all our questions about evil, but it does tell us that evil comes ultimately from Satan, who is absolutely evil and opposed to everything good, including God. And while Satan isn’t equal to God, he’s a powerful spiritual being who seeks by every means possible to block what God is doing. Jesus called him “a murderer from the beginning … and the father of lies” (John 8:44).
One of Satan’s biggest lies is to convince people that he doesn’t even exist, and that evil isn’t real. But if evil isn’t real, why did Jesus Christ come into the world? Jesus didn’t come to teach us how to think positive thoughts. He came to give his life as the final sacrifice for sin, and by his resurrection he conquered evil and Satan and hell. Someday, his victory will be complete, and Satan and evil will be banished forever. The Bible says, “The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work” (1 John 3:8).
I was so very sad to see this report on KOB TV last night. Someone, very evil, vandalized the Memorial for Albuquerque Police Officer Daniel Webster who was shot and killed in October of 2015. I heard the interview with his wife. I was sad and mad. Our Country has lost its moral compass, no doubt about it. KOB TV Story
We are becoming more and more a very hateful nation.
Back in October I asked Chief Gorden Eden if I could post his tribute to Officer Webster:
October 29, 2015 impacted a community, friends and a family forever. Officer Daniel Scott Webster, 47, died around 2:15 a.m. Police Chief Gorden Eden said Webster, an 8-year veteran of the department, was “a true hero and guardian of our community and nation. This is a man who is truly a legacy within the department,” Eden said at a news conference. “I can’t say enough to the community, who rose up and did so much to support this family.”
The Final Inspection
The policeman stood and faced his God, which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shining just as brightly as his brass.
“Step forward now, policeman. How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek? To my church have you been true?”
The policeman squared his shoulders and said. “No, I guess I ain’t because those of us who carry a badge can’t always be a Saint. I’ve had to work most Sundays and at times my talk is rough, and sometimes I’ve been violent, because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny that wasn’t mine to keep… though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills got to steep. And I never passed a cry for help though at times I shook with fear, and sometimes, God forgive me, I’ve wept unmanly tears.
I know I don’t deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear. If you’ve a place for me here, Lord, it needn’t be so grand,
I never expected or had too much, but if you don’t…I’ll understand”.
There was a silence all around the throne where the Saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
“Step forward now, policeman.
You’ve borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven’s streets.
You’ve done your time in Hell”
My posts from Oct. 29th 2015:
We just learned that Officer Daniel Webster died overnight at the University of New Mexico Hospital. We are weeping…….we are in mourning for Officer Webster and his family, and praying. Officer Webster Dies
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Albuquerque Police Department as we get news that Officer Daniel Webster has succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained on October 21st, 2015, while making a traffic stop.
