Sharing My Testimony ... Usually, after work, I am too tired to walk home. But today I felt good enough to do so. I took my little time and just admired the sights - walked a mile. As I reached the last quarter mile, there were some elderly ladies chillaxing with a baby. We chatted … Continue reading Daily Journal: He Walked With Me Throughout My Christian Life
The Danger of False Teachers Even in the time of Jude, false teachers attempted and often succeeded in supplanting themselves in God's church. The directions given by the Holy Spirit through the servant Jude, was to all Christian saints. Both in the past, present day and definitely in the future. (Jude 1:1) Jude was highly … Continue reading Revealing the truth about Jude 1 by Denise N. Fyffe
The Whole Armor of God
In the next two blog post I will be talking about putting on “The whole Armor of God”. In this first post we go over the reference text Ephesians 6:13-18, List of each one and reference verses about each one. In the next post we go over each one in detail. I will be using the New Living Translation bible for scripture references.
13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armour so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.
14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armour of God’s righteousness.
15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.
16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.
17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.
In this passage Paul tells us to put on seven things to help us as Christians to fight temptation and to become more mature believers. 1.) Belt of Truth 2.) Breastplate of Righteousness 3.) Battle Shoes 4.) Shield of Faith 5.) Helmet of Salvation 6.) Sword of the spirit “The Bible” 7.) Praying the Spirit at all times.
Here’s is a few Scripture reference to each one of things listed, I will be going over each one in detail, in the next blog post.
- Belt of Truth – Isaiah 11:5, Ephesians 4:25, John 4:24, Colossians 3:8-10
- Breastplate of Righteousness – 1 kings 3:9, Proverbs 2:7-8, Psalm 94:15
- Standing in the Gospel (Shoes) – Ephesians 6:15, Romans 8:5-13, Romans 10:15
- Helmet of Salvation (Jesus) – 1 Thessalonians 5:8, Colossians 1:18, 1 Peter 4:1, psalm 140:7, 1 Corinthians 2:16
- Word of God (Sword of the spirit)– Isaiah 49:2, 2 Corinthians 6:7, Hebrews 4:12-13, Psalm 149:4-6

Facebook, twitter, blackberry, Wii, android, iPad, iPod, iPhone, YouTube; these are all distractions in the Christian Life. Man, am I guilty as sin. I am a techie. To make it worse, I am a software technologist. This means I am particularly adept at learning and being attracted to new software and programs. So, yes, I … Continue reading The Christian Life: Distractions in the Christian Life (Facebook)
“Well, it seems that some people don’t learn the importance of silence until there is an element of fear. I believe that in life each of us comes to that one moment where something scares us so much that the fear within us silences us, and we can do nothing more than be silent!”
Boy, was she right.
Recently I’ve been silent. Each day I’ve sat down at my computer to pen my Appointment with God, only to find that nothing more than silence arrived. For the past few months I’ve had many adversities within my life, but it seemed that the moment I stopped talking and simply prayed… “Jesus, help me. Please make a way for me where there seems to be no way…”

- When life pulls you down – remember LOOK UP to JESUS – The LAMB standing in the throneroom of heaven! (sacollinsvogan.wordpress.com)
In 1991 my grandparents decided they would go to the movies. It was a hot day, and sitting in an air-conditioned room with popcorn and a movie seemed like the right thing to do so they looked through the movie ads within the paper and when they read the title: Silence of the Lambs, they “assumed” anything with a lamb in it must have been made by Disney. I can still remember my Sunday evening phone call as if it were yesterday.
The call went like this!
“Gina, oh my gosh. Your grandfather and I went to the movies today and watched this movie called: Silence of the Lambs, and please do not take your children to see it. It was not made by Disney!”
I giggled on the other end of the phone and asked, “Well, didn’t you see the picture of the man wearing a scary mask?”
