Abortion …. Tied to The Tree of Life.

1973 to Present there has been 58,217,500 abortion preformed in the United States .. you could take 25 of the top football stadium in US from:

1) Michigan ……… 107,601

2) Penn State …….106,572

3) Ohio …………….104,944

4) Texas A&M …… 102,733

5) Tennessee……..102,455

6) LSU ……………..102,321

7) Alabama ………. 101,821

8 Texas……………. 100,119

9) S. California……..93, 607

10) Georgia …………92,746

11) UCLA …………….90,888

12) Florida ……………88,548

13) Arburn ……………87,451

14) Oklahoma………..86,112

15) Nebraska ………..85,458

16) Clemson …………81,500

17) N. Dame ………….80,795

18) Wisconsin………. 80,322

19) S. Carolina ………80,250

20) Florida State ……79,560

21) Arkansas ………..76,800

22) Michigan State ..75,005

23) UAB ………………72,000

24) Missouri………… 71,168

25) Iowa ……………..70,585

—————————————————-

Total………………..2,245,902

58,217,500 divided by 2,245,902 comes out to round up to 26 times.

You could fill all these 25 stadium’s – 26 times to that the “Silent Scream” in America in the name of “choice” because it inconvenient for me.

“American Women” you have rebelled against the commandments of God. Instead of a growing, “The Almighty God Culture” you have seared that conscience and roborant yourselves among yourselves. Trying to create this false milieu of “#Metoo”; that is abhorrent to the very design of God for you to create life in union and harmony of God’s creation, a wellspring of nurturing life and well being. At the same time you could be defining your legacy of you’re own family’s pedigree as a conduit of your own historical debut to the heritage and promise covenant tied to Abraham. Your revolt is obscurantism and benighted your own intelligence to no less than the same act of murder of Cain to his own flesh and blood of his own brother Able, to drown out the curse of disobedience because you could not resist to control your own emotions tied to the false sense of truth of the tree of life spoken by the serpent to Eve thru self wisdom, self indulgence and self glorification, only reason abortion prevails in all of our lives.

God Speaks Truth exotically, Satan Speaks esoterically half truths by changing or adding words that God did not speak because there is a flaw in your nature that can be bought with a lie.

52 Facts About The Book Of Acts

FACT #9 – Wonders And Signs ( were done by the Apostles Acts 2:22)

During Thursday’s From Your Abode Around The Globe prayer time, I focused on PRAYING WITH THE PROVERBS 31 LADY Wearing Christ… She was clothed with purple and Silk. v. 22. Purple is a symbol of Royalty. We are in the Royal Priesthood. Put on the Armor of God. (Sword of The Spirit, Shield of Faith, Breastplate of Righteousness, Helmet of Salvation, Gird About with Truth, Feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of Peace). Be adorned with His robes of Righteousness. Put On Christ. When the world looks at us, do they see Jesus? That is my desire. Amen! ( Thursday’s prayer is 7 AM CT).

Who we are:.. Mark and Lisa Peter of Henderson TN. Born and Raised in the Apostolic Pentecostal Church. Former youth Leaders in Hutchinson Kansas, taught Chapel with Missionary Edwina Elder, Sunday School and Bus Ministries, Music Ministry, Deaf Ministry, Search For Truth Bible Studies, etc. We reside in Henderson Tennessee with grown children and grandchildren living in Kansas and family in Indiana, Ohio, Colorado, California, Texas, Arizona, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Kentucky, Illinois, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Canada, Etc. we believe in Global Missions!

We pray that our weekly HazelwoodUSA webpage ( http://www.HazelwoodUSA.weebly.com ) and videos
are a blessing to you. we also have segments “Breaking Bread From House To House”,” From Our Abode Around The Globe”,” Star Of Song Studios”, “Rags To Riches”, “Word Weavers Writers Group” etc. just little things we do to try to Bless God and Bless Others will be beneficial to His Kingdom. Little Is Much When God Is In It. Amen )

ACTS FACTS

Everywhere Jesus went He was followed by Miracles, Wonders and Signs…. And this continued in the Book of Acts. in Acts 2 alone wonders and signs are mentioned 3 times. In verse Acts 2:22 it tells us that wonders and signs were done by the Apostles. – we, the church, the body of Christ have the same Power through Christ in us to also do wonders and signs. How much faith do we have to see the glory of God done through the power of His Name? This week I listened to a Sermon that clearly defined how Christianity is different than other Great (in size) religions of the world. The preacher gave 4 examples of how the Christian faith differs from the other religions. #1. Universal Authority… when the Word of God is preached anywhere in the world it has the same effect. Why? Because the Word of God is Quick and Powerful and sharper than any two edged sword. King David said “Thy Word has quickened me.” Quickened means makes alive. When the Word of God is preached – conviction comes. Because it is the only book that promises eternal life. Eternal Salvation. Not just a man-made manuscript. The Bible continues to be the Best Selling Book in the entire world.
#2.. Universal Authority in the Name of Jesus… Mark 16. Every knee shall bow and confess that Jesus is Lord. Anywhere in the world when you say the Name of Jesus demons tremble. They know that Name. No matter what language you speak there is healing in the Name of Jesus!… When Peter preached on the day of Pentecost he specifically said to be Baptized in the Name of Jesus. there is salvation in no other Name.
#3 Romans 8:11 – the same spirit that raised up Christ from the dead dwells in us. The Power… Speaking in Tongues… Acts 2:1-4. All over the world the Spirit of God shows up and results in the same reaction. Omnipresent.. Universal!!
#4 Great world religions teach how a person should act, etc… they have books and teaching. But in real Christianity.. A Person who has never heard about Jesus in their life can hear one message and act on it and be Changed. CHANGED… If any man be in Christ he is a new creature. Instantly. Completely. Totally changed. A drunkard no longer needs alcohol. A prostitute doesn’t need trained to no longer sell her body. A drug addict no longer is addicted.

It is truly a fact that the wonders and signs that happened on the day of Pentecost and throughout the book of Acts are still in effect today. The same Holy Ghost that changed lives back then is changing lives today.

The Gospel message that I always must share is that preached by Apostle Peter on the Day of Pentecost when the church was first born. The whole gospel to the whole world. ( Matthew 28:19) Global Missions.

To every race… to every nation!
Acts 2:1-16 Acts 8, Acts 10, Acts 12.. etc. Where the Holy Ghost was being poured out on the Jews, Samaritans, The Gentiles.

Acts 2: 36-39 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the Apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the Remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

note: so proud of my 5 year old granddaughter who called this week and could quote Acts 2:37-40. I asked if it was for Bible quizzing and no, it was for something she was doing at school. – this is so awesome. TYJ.
This gospel is for you today… Today is the day of Salvation. ( 2 Corinthians 6:2 )
Isaiah 12:2
2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Isaiah 12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the well of Salvation.

The Necessity of Theology ( why do we need to know this).
II Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
II Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
Ephesians 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive:
I Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

SOMETHING TO PONDER:
Optimism: My cup is half full
Pessimism: My cup is half empty
Faith: My cup runneth over
Remember: Pride and Praise both have the vowel I…. but in Praise the I is silent because it is about and given to Someone else.

THE APOSTOLIC ATTITUDE

Author Unknown

I’m a part of the fellowship of the unashamed, I have Holy Ghost power. The dye has been cast, I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I’m a disciple of HIS. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure.

I’m finished with low-living, sight-walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed vision, chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need prosperity, position, promotion or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by present tense, by faith, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power.

My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few, my guide reliable, my mission clear.

I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, deceived, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of my enemy, negotiate at the table of the adversary, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the place of mediocrity

I won’t give-up, let-up or shut-up until I have stayed-up, stored-up, prayed-up, paid-up and preached-up for the cause of Christ.

I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, I must go ’til he comes, give ’til I drop, preach ’til all know and work ’til He stops me. And when he comes for His own He will not have trouble recognizing me because I will not he discounted and I refuse to quit.

Word Weavers Writers Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/131680386870963/ This is a link to a facebook page that I have set up for our Chester County Word Weavers Christian Writers Group.. I no longer attend the monthly meetings but still keep in contact with some of the writers and also share interesting things I find about writing tips, getting published, etc. Open to anyone – so feel free to join

Healthy Lifestyle Group on face book – (Tune Up To Tone Up With Tuna Salmon And Eggs) https://www.facebook.com/groups/913583822003324/?hc_ref=ARRJnTRs90dhj2oiHU3CI6zmqE5UHo4tu-Y7RnX6GmI7w4tIx5fNoxHoU6orY87vsNY my 2018 goal is to lose 1 pound a week in 2019

Proverbs 31 Lady Group ( Rags To Riches) where we post photos of quilts, hobbies, and very cool stuff. https://www.facebook.com/groups/643225672520489/
Besides working on blackwork embroidered blocks for each state, each week I try to make or complete a small item or craft. Been looking at a lot of quilt tutorials and videos. So eager to get back to my projects. Someone posted that she was working on her PH.D- Projects half done. LOL. yep – I can relate. Haven’t been working on as many projects as I’d like. This week Melanie, Raelyn and I did make a few paper flowers for Raelyn’s birthday backdrop next Sunday.

I Have an Altered Ego – I write a portion of a Christian Fiction Story every day… The girl in my story is named Melody. I have not given her an age nor do I assign to her a “family”. The story is based pretty much on my life and the things that I do and so when I use instances that involve my husband, children, grandchildren, etc they are referred to as my “friends”. My parents and Melody’s parents are the same. They just are never “Named”. I hope to actually take these tidbits that I write each day and turn them into Christian Novels or a devotional. But until then you can still read what I have written – here… https://www.facebook.com/groups/133586507093601/

Two Year Old Miracle

“All Flesh” …. In Genesis 6-9 these two words appear side by side 12 times … You can see the Wrath Of God to Saving Grace of God to the Promise Covenant Of God because of those two words.

You can see those two words in Leviticus and Numbers … The Wrath Of God to the Mercy Of God as Children Of Israel plead with God over those two Words … All Flesh; again in Deuteronomy

In Job

David in Psalms used those two words to Magnify God three times

6 Prophets used them Isaiah 6 times; Jeremiah 3 times; Ezekiel 3 times even Daniel used it Zechariah did…. All Flesh

Writers in New Testament John, Luke, Peter Paul used those two words … “All Flesh”

But yet I skipped over one of the prophets that brings me to my topic today … my 2 year old Miracle thank God for Joel 2:28

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

Repeated by Peter in Acts 2 …. hmm …Joel 2, Acts 2 My 2 year old Miracle.

It begin in Dec 1989 my last daughter was born and Melanie Clarissa Peter…. I raised my Girls on the front pew of the Apostolic Pentecostal Church Hutchinson, Ks … the only thing they saw was the pulpit and the preacher … even before Melanie could speak English … she found her place at the altar by the pulpit … and would cry out loud weeping and moaning as the altar call was given, she nearly put adults to shame with the Holy Ghost… many times I would just have to pick her up from the altar and carry her home lost in prayer

“All Flesh” March 1992, Youth Service Tuesday night, I was Youth Leader, my wife at the organ … the power of God fell … on “All Flesh” that night … No altar call … backsliden boys and girls came to the altar … I began praying with the young teenage boys … pretty soon women came and got me to pray with some of the teen age girls … I was praying with the girls … when another lady pointed to a backsliden girl on the 3 pew back weeping … women had gathered around her … I went to go pray with her … but when I got there I was not prepared for what I was about to see … sitting on the teenage girls lap Erin Hennigan was my 2 year old girl … with her little hands in the air, tears falling off her face … her face was aglow … and out of her mouth she was speaking on other tongues as the Spirit of God was anointing her … The miracle… a two year old speaking in another language…. I just melted into the carpet … the whole church had gathered around to witness this little miracle…. about a hour later Bro. Jack Karriker took to the microphone … with tears running down his checks …. he looked at me and then the rest of the Church and said … “that is a testament to the Bro and Sis Peter lifestyle in their home”

52 Facts About The Book Of Acts

FACT #4 – Praise Sets You Free

During Thursday’s From Your Abode Around The Globe prayer time, I focused on PRAYING WITH THE PROVERBS 31 LADY – A Woman Who Fears The Lord ( v. 30) – Proverbs 9:10 The FEAR of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. I want to come before His presence with reverence and a pure heart. Amen! ( Thursday’s prayer is 7 AM CT).

Who we are:.. Mark and Lisa Peter of Henderson TN. Born and Raised in the Apostolic Pentecostal Church. Former youth Leaders in Hutchinson Kansas, taught Chapel with Missionary Edwina Elder, Sunday School and Bus Ministries, Music Ministry, Deaf Ministry, Search For Truth Bible Studies, etc. We reside in Henderson Tennessee with grown children and grandchildren living in Kansas and family in Indiana, Ohio, Colorado, California, Texas, Arizona, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Kentucky, Illinois, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Canada, Etc. we believe in Global Missions!

We pray that our weekly HazelwoodUSA webpage ( http://www.HazelwoodUSA.weebly.com ) and videos
are a blessing to you. we also have segments “Breaking Bread From House To House”,” From Our Abode Around The Globe”,” Star Of Song Studios”, “Rags To Riches”, “Word Weavers Writers Group” etc. just little things we do to try to Bless God and Bless Others will be beneficial to His Kingdom. Little Is Much When God Is In It. Amen )

ACTS
FEAR CAME UPON EVERY SOUL…. Fear in the Greek means eulaberia which translates to caution and Reverence. Not the scaredy cat type of fear… because perfect love castest out all fear and God is Love.
The Bible talks a lot about Fear and we will talk more about that on another day…

Praise Sets People free. we read in Acts about Paul and Silas being in Prison and at Midnight they began singing and praising God and it resulted in the jailer getting saved.
We heard about the little boy that was kidnapped and he began singing a song he had learned called Every Praise is To Our God… the kidnapper ended up releasing him. Praise Sets Us Free.
Each of our Grandchildren learned that song as one of the first songs they ever could sing on their own. It makes me so happy to know this and that my grandson Judah… his name even means Praise.
My husband preached a sermon while we were youth leaders in Kansas called the Praise Family and Israel means God’s Dominion… and Judah means His Sanctuary and/or Praise. God knew even back then that our Grandchildren would have those names. God is faithful!
Since then we have a Gracelynn who means God’s Grace and Jeremiah means God is High and Raelyn means Ewe. I find that fascinating. As for me and my house – we will serve the Lord! Amen!!

The Gospel message that I always must share is that preached by Apostle Peter on the Day of Pentecost when the church was first born. The whole gospel to the whole world. ( Matthew 28:19) Global Missions.

To every race… to every nation!
Acts 2:1-16 Acts 8, Acts 10, Acts 12.. etc. Where the Holy Ghost was being poured out on the Jews, Samaritans, The Gentiles.

Acts 2: 36-39 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the Apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the Remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
This gospel is for you today… Today is the day of Salvation. ( 2 Corinthians 6:2 )
Isaiah 12:2
2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Isaiah 12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the well of Salvation.

After awhile he was able to get his hours changed again and he had it set up that Sis. Paula White would be close by the side door of the church and during song service there was a knock, knock, knock on the door. Sis. White… aka Rhoda went to answer the door and there was Peter… aka Mark Peter and we all said “Peter got out of Prison”… – because that is where Mark worked at the Hutchinson Correctional Facility which was a prison.

I’m finished with low-living, sight-walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed vision, chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need prosperity, position, promotion or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by present tense, by faith, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power.

My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few, my guide reliable, my mission clear.

I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, deceived, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of my enemy, negotiate at the table of the adversary, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the place of mediocrity

I won’t give-up, let-up or shut-up until I have stayed-up, stored-up, prayed-up, paid-up and preached-up for the cause of Christ.

I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, I must go ’til he comes, give ’til I drop, preach ’til all know and work ’til He stops me. And when he comes for His own He will not have trouble recognizing me because I will not he discounted and I refuse to quit.

Besides working on blackwork embroidered blocks for each state, each week I try to make or complete a small item or craft. Been looking at a lot of quilt tutorials and videos. So eager to get back to my projects. Someone posted that she was working on her PH.D- Projects half done. LOL. yep – I can relate. Worked more on my crochet… Christmas Decorations… etc.

I Have an Altered Ego – I write a portion of a Christian Fiction Story every day… The girl in my story is named Melody. I have not given her an age nor do I assign to her a “family”. The story is based pretty much on my life and the things that I do and so when I use instances that involve my husband, children, grandchildren, etc they are referred to as my “friends”. My parents and Melody’s parents are the same. They just are never “Named”. I hope to actually take these tidbits that I write each day and turn them into Christian Novels or a devotional. But until then you can still read what I have written – here… https://www.facebook.com/groups/133586507093601/

FROM YOUR ABODE AROUND THE GLOBE ( Thursday 7 AM CT)
Prayer Requests:
Yesterday my Grandson Jeremiah came to my room as I was preparing for today’s lesson and he said “PaPaw said that you and he were sick. I don’t want you sick. And so I came to pray for you. He had jelly all over his face from just having eaten a pb and j. and yet his face was so serious. He put his hand on me and prayed for both me and PaPaw.” so very precious. I thank God that my grandchildren believe in the power of Prayer!!

Pray for my mom – Nina Kelley she has the flu.
Pray for a friend named Jinger – she is in the Hospital with stomach issues and only being given ice chips to eat until they can find out the problem.

When Peter Woke Up the Second Time from a unknown Prayer Meeting

The night before Jesus was to die … The Master had called on 3 Disciples to go pray with him …. Peter James and John but they fell asleep…. The Master knowing the hour was come for him to be tried, tortured hung and to die … tried three times to wake them … and three times all three whisked not the spirit of desperation was about to become their nightmare for 3 days …. Roman Soldiers, Sanhedrin Court/Priest and one of their own Judas was cutting thru the darkness with blades of swords and torches to come take Jesus away … Darkness came into light … Jesus was going to be taken away … Peter awoke … realized what was happening… drew his sword and cut off a ear … Peter who could not pray one hour … was ready to enforce his power where it was not wanted or needed …. Jesus turned to Peter and said before this night ends you will deny me thrice …. Peter everything in his body was screaming … NO, NO, NO…. I will fight for you ….

Peter had missed a prayer meeting and lost the Master

But Acts 2 happen to Peter 50 days later …. Power of the Holy Ghost …. Peter became the spokesman where 3,000 Soul’s was added to the church that same day

Acts 3 happen to Peter and another 5,000 souls added …. Revival Revival Revival …. but the same thing that happen to Jesus was now about to Play out in Peter life … King Herod …. took control of Peter to stop the Jesus movement and put him in Prison Acts 12 ….

let’s pick up the story Acts 12:5-17

Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.

6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.

7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.

8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.

9 And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision.

10 When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him.

11 ¶ And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.

12 ¶ And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.

13 And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, named Rhoda.

14 And when she knew Peter’s voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate.

15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel.

16 ¶ But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.

17 But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go shew these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.

There is something about Prison’s and Prayer meetings … that works

Hello … my last name is Peter and I had a similar experience back in my early married life … We married on July 23,1983 …. I became Youth Leader 1984 … we had our first child August 6, 1985 … August 15, 1985 I began my career at a Maximum Prison …. things were looking up … until about six months later … I was trained, but the downside was Prison has 3 shifts … my services was to put me on the 4-12 shift … with Wednesday and Thursday off …. the problem was Youth Service was on Tuesday nights … Youth Leader … not able to be at Youth Service …. I was going to miss … I went to talk with the Capt of shift … he was in no mood for this new and up coming whipper snapper to dictate the terms of my employment you come back in a year and we will see what I can do. … I had to stay … I went and talked with my pastor … He just looked at me and said … Mark don’t worry go home and read Acts 12 … in the meantime I am holding your job open … but the church is going to pray …. I went home and read Acts 12 …. I was Peter caught between two Conflicts … that literally had me in Prison …. all I could wrap my head around v5 of Acts 12 …. But Prayer was was made without ceasing for Peter.

One month passed, two months passed three months passed …. hope was gone in my spirit. The Youth Service was going on without the YouthLeader …. but Prayer was still being made … One Sunday night about 10pm the Captain called me to the office …. As I turned the corner to enter into his office … He just looked up and said, Mr. Peter …. it’s been 3 months since you asked off for Monday/Tuesday … I can’t get your request out of my head …. Someone has asked to have your days off …. do you still need Mon/Tuesday off …. my eyes must have given me away … as tears started to flow … He said, “I take that as a “yes” … I nodded yes …. good starting tomorrow you have Monday and Tuesday off ….. God had worked the miracle … call it vintage, call it nostalgia, call it reconstructionism …. but Acts 12 was playin out in my head … I was not going to tell my pastor … my wife and I kept it a secret…that Monday night I called the song Leader and the piano player … I would wait till church had started … I would then go to the side door and knock on the door just like Peter …. Sis White was going to be my Rhoda …. but when it did play out that Tuesday night … the music and worship was so loud … it drowned out my knocks … Bro. Karriker the song Leader had to shut it down … turn to Sis White and said, Rhoda did I hear a knock at that door … I began to knock … Sis White opened the door … … I hit that door running, hit the platform with a single bound …. looked straight into the surprised Churches eyes …. and Yelled Acts 12 still works … told them about the miracle because of THIER prayer …. Church was on ….

From the Cross of Jesus to the Throne of Jesus.

I was in jail – I prayed this prayer as the Spirit of prayer came over me … no … I was not a inmate sitting in jail but it was about 2 am in the morning working by myself as a Correctional officer in the officer station at work … I begin walking back and forth … tears flooding down my face … just me and God … for about half a hour … when I was no longer in control of the words coming out … but God literally and literary speaking through me … I heard myself say … “Jesus … my temporary home is at the foot of the the cross, but my permanent home will be at the foot of your throne” … I stopped grabbed a pen and begin to write on paper …5 years later I cannot tell you where that paper is now …. but I can tell you the exact words that came out of me… for once you are in the presence of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords you will never forget it.

The cross represents agape love extended from Almighty God too mortality in earthen vessels, which are born and sharpen in iniquity, yet the uniqueness of this is this that God made us all in his own image. Now against the backdrop incomparable God we are but a vapor, just a moment in time against the vastness of time that expands eternity from before you to beyond you. Born to die, a life of trials; temptation’s and limitation’s.

The cross stands as bench mark for every human to accept or reject God and his salvation plan.

The cross is the symbol of cynosure for humanity to spirituality.

The cross is the naissance of spiritual birth that begins the shedding of our carnal nature that readies ourselves for growth in a new and improved illumination of Godliness.

The the cross is the only monument that stands between heaven or hell for humanity. Everyone of us at some point will come to the cross of Jesus and make a decision …. there is a right side where you embrace and fall in love and embrace the only Savior of the world and there is a left side that you leave; reject; walk away or refuse.

I decided to fall in love with the sacrifice of God’s salvation to embrace with both hands to, walk in faith and in love; and that love will carry me one day into the THRONE ROOM OF MY GOD. It’s here that our mortality will take on immortality.

The Throne Room will be the ultimate experience to beside our Creator; Redeemer; Healer; Savior, God, in all his power and Glory. We will be in the presence of the Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient Spirit of the Almighty God who is from Everlasting to Everlasting

From the Foot of the Cross to the foot of the Throne is where I want to be found.

My Thought on Woman’s Choice

Woman’s right to choose is a truthiness embosk and packaged up in rebellion against God’s full purpose of fulfilling her role in the first commandment to man and woman to be fruitful and multiply in two roles instituted by God; marriage and family. The child is God’s heritage which means the fruit of a woman’s womb is the conduit of what belongs to him. The child has a soul, and the soul belongs to God. What is being created in the woman is not a product of anything she set in motion, but what God set in motion. The womb should have been the safest place for a child but has become the battleground of convenience over consequences. Woman’s right ends another life rights – Did God give that right to a woman?

( Thursday’s prayer is 7 AM CT).

Who we are:.. Mark and Lisa Peter of Henderson TN. Born and Raised in the Apostolic Pentecostal Church.

Philippians 4:11
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
I know and you know that when Paul said that in Philippians 4:11 he was not talking about a State in the United States of America. The USA was not even in existence then. But he was talking about being content.

This week we take a trip to the 35th state of the USA… West Virginia. We were blessed for about four or five years to have our family CD receive airplay on an internet radio station based out of Beckley West Virginia. It was so exciting to hear four of our songs being played amongst other great Christian Artists on Vision Southern Gospel Radio. I learned this week that West Virginia has or had the largest Sycamore Tree in the United States. That of course makes me think of Zachceus and so I included that song on our playlist. Also on the playlist we have a recipe to make Pepperoni Rolls – a native recipe of West Virginia and many great songs and preaching. West Virginia was originally part of Virginia but became a whole new state.
I added Loretta Lynn’s Coalminers Daughter to today’s playlist even though her story is from Butcher Hollow KY.. because of the Coal Mining that is very much a part of West Virginia – though Salt mining had a big part in West Virginia also. Now, I wasn’t born a Coal Miners Daughter but I was born a Hamster Farmers Daughter… lol. My dad worked for Uncle Everett in the Engle Lab. of Animals. Basically they raised white mice, hamsters and guinea pigs for medicine experiments. Horrible, I know – but at the time it was a big industry. Uncle Everett sold the company for a million dollars and dad moved to Ft Wayne to work for K-mart.

We are blessed to live in The Land of The Free and the Home of The Brave. I hope you enjoyed our brief tour of West Virginia today. I ask that you will Please pray for the State of West Virginia during your prayer times this week. Thank You.

The Gospel message that I always must share is that preached by Apostle Peter on the Day of Pentecost when the church was first born. The whole gospel to the whole world. ( Matthew 28:19) Global Missions.

To every race… to every nation!
Acts 2:1-16 Acts 8, Acts 10, Acts 12.. etc. Where the Holy Ghost was being poured out on the Jews, Samaritans, The Gentiles.

Acts 2: 36-39 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the Apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the Remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
This gospel is for you today… Today is the day of Salvation. ( 2 Corinthians 6:2 )
Isaiah 12:2
2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Isaiah 12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the well of Salvation.

GLOBAL MISSIONS:
I did an experiment online and discovered that I have at least one Facebook friend or a church I am connected to from all 50 States.. Hallelujah we are HazelwoodUSA…. and also at least 33 other countries… we are Global!! Many of these friends/churches are Pentecostal or co-workers, friends from school etc, or friends I made online.

Use us Lord ( HazelwoodUSA) to reach out, to give, to be a part of the endtime revival! Souls! Souls! Souls! For Jesus! according to Wikipedia there are approx 247 Pentecostals Worldwide. That is so awesome but there is still so much harvest… In Jesus Name! Lord, help us to reach the masses.

The Necessity of Theology ( why do we need to know this).
II Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
II Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
Ephesians 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive:
I Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

SOMETHING TO PONDER:
Optimism: My cup is half full
Pessimism: My cup is half empty
Faith: My cup runneth over
Remember: Pride and Praise both have the vowel I…. but in Praise the I is silent because it is about and given to Someone else.
Goal: Be A Conduit – not a funnel. Funnels can back up and clog.

Book Recommendation: KJV of the Holy Bible… I finished reading the whole Bible through in 2017. During 2018 I think I am just going to go back to reading more of the Proverbs and Psalms and doing Bible Studies with a study group. I have been re-reading When Ye Pray by Sis. Joy Haney and also have begun the When Ye Fast book… We also have When Ye Give and so many others of her awesome books. I plan on re-reading all the ones we have on hand and buy some of the ones we do not have when we get to General Conference. Such great books. Someone asked on social media this week about what books inspired us the most.. And I said “The Greatest Salesman In The World by Og Mandino… and You Gotta Have The Want Too – Allan Oggs. Isn’t it strange that both Authors have Og or Oggs in them? Ogg is a very unusual Scottish surname and means Young.

THE APOSTOLIC ATTITUDE

Author Unknown

I’m a part of the fellowship of the unashamed, I have Holy Ghost power. The dye has been cast, I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I’m a disciple of HIS. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure.

I’m finished with low-living, sight-walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed vision, chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need prosperity, position, promotion or popularity. I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded. I now live by present tense, by faith, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power.

My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven. My road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few, my guide reliable, my mission clear.

I cannot be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, deceived, or delayed. I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of my enemy, negotiate at the table of the adversary, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the place of mediocrity

I won’t give-up, let-up or shut-up until I have stayed-up, stored-up, prayed-up, paid-up and preached-up for the cause of Christ.

I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, I must go ’til he comes, give ’til I drop, preach ’til all know and work ’til He stops me. And when he comes for His own He will not have trouble recognizing me because I will not he discounted and I refuse to quit.

The story is based pretty much on my life and the things that I do and so when I use instances that involve my husband, children, grandchildren, etc they are referred to as my “friends”. My parents and Melody’s parents are the same. They just are never “Named”. I hope to actually take these tidbits that I write each day and turn them into Christian Novels or a devotional.

Valley of Lights: Val Trompia, in the Provincia of Brescia – GRAND VOYAGE ITALY

Valley of Lights: Val Trompia, in the Provincia of Brescia – GRAND VOYAGE ITALY
— Read on www.grandvoyageitaly.com/piazza/valley-of-lights-val-trompia-in-the-provincia-of-brescia

I was awe struck at this picture …. The Valley Of Lights …. what a concept … what a example of the Church in the World …When I first moved to Henderson Tn the church was in a contest that I have never forget the church was divide into two halves and on half of the church was from the Country the other half was the Church from the City … each team was given 7-10 minutes to have a mini service; songs about the city or mountain … take up a offering and preach from the Bible, Why the City Church was the best or why the Country Church was the best … both offerings was given to raise money for the church has a whole.
I’m going to come at this picture with the same thought; The Valley Church vs the Mountain Church. The picture of the Valley Of Lights it does not fit the narrative of most motivational speakers or preachers …. when they speak or preach to tickle the ears of the audience …. everyone wants a mountain top experience … to rise above your problems… to live above your problems, live above the fray … aim high… to live above the clouds and the storms, to live above the rain, sleet, and snow. But when I saw this picture the Aweness and the revelation of it was a powerful thought provoking thought. The Mountain church cannot live without the Valley Church and the Valley Church cannot live without the Mountain Church they go hand in hand for each defines the other they are inseparable

A Valley is defined this way:
A long, narrow region of low land between ranges of mountains, hills, or other high areas, often having a river or stream running along the bottom. Valleys are most commonly formed through the erosion of land by rivers or glaciers. They also form where large regions of land are lowered because of geological faults.

The Valley Church from the perception of the Mountain Church is in 3D and this picture … each light represents a beacon of hope to people living in the Valley… why because the definition that we just provided a river running through it … running water is a life given source and nessecity to sustain life for both crops, people and animals …. running water represents Jesus Christ for he said in
John 4:10-14 ….Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11 ¶ The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13 ¶ Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

You can be down in the dumps … you can be the trial of your life… you can be in the valley of despair …. everyday problems can get you down …. but there is a Spiritual river that runs through this valley giving life, healing, substance that is a beneficial to the problems we face each and every day that will sustain you for another 24 hours.

Light … Jesus said in John 8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

No matter how dark the night …. no matter if there no moon or stars if we allow the Light of Jesus as a church to illuminate …. there is always HOPE to see our way thru for every living human being.

Somewhere down in this valley of Lights there is a flowing river and because of that river there is humanity, crops and animals …. Which means for the Church there is always a need to be a light for the need by river

Luke 3:5 says this by Jesus Christ {The Light of the World and the River of Life}
Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;
6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

“The Valley Of Lights a beautiful bending river runs thru it” and it is the Shangri-la of utopia of spiritual freedom … it is where war is waged but victories are won, it’s where despair caves into hope, it’s where thirst gives way to hydration , it’s where darkness is turned to Light, it is where death is given a revival of life. And sorrow turned into joy. It’s where a lyric finds music; it’s where the Mountain holds the valley and the valley holds the mountain and revelation that both are our journey; it’s where black and white meets a rainbow colors where enemies become friends tears are turned into smiles. It’s where the melody is turned into harmony.
