Got some friends? May I ask.. how are your friends? How’s your home and family life?

Man, I feel so blessed with my parents, family and friends, but some people I meet and talk with sadly have a lot of tension in these relationships. Do you have lots of strife in your home? There are some things you can do. 
Do you get alone to pray about this..daily? Earnestly? Do you have a place where you receive support? The nice thing about bein’ a born again Christian is not just gettin’ out there to prayerfully look for, but actually finding a healthy Christian local church and friendships there -- it just feels like family cuz it really is Family. Where do you find Bible based fellowship to help you grow? 
And it feels like it more like it than with some biological family members for some of us. Do ya need a church home and a warm-hearted family? 

When family members at home let each other down.. or you down.. God has given us a loving family at church. "What is true friendship according to the Bible?" The Lord Jesus Christ gave us the definition of a true friend: "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you" (John 15:13-15). Jesus is the pure example of a true friend, for He laid down His life for His "friends." What is more, anyone may become His friend by trusting in Him as his personal savior, being born again and receiving new life in Him.

There is an example of true friendship between David and Saul's son Jonathan, who, in spite of his father Saul's pursuit of David and attempts to kill him, stood by his friend. You will find that story in 1 Samuel chapter 18 through chapter 20. Some pertinent passages are 1 Samuel 18: 1-4; 19: 4-7; 20:11-17, 41-42.

Proverbs is another good source of wisdom regarding friends. "A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity" (Proverbs 17: 17). "A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother" (Proverbs 18:24). The issue here is that in order have a friend, one must be a friend. "Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses" (Proverbs 27:6). "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another" (Proverbs 27:17). Look to the Lord together in prayer. Why base your friendship on something lame.. that will pass away?



The principle of friendship is also found in Amos. "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" (Amos 3: 3 KJV). 

Friends are of like mind. Live in unity around Christ and His Essentials. The truth that comes from all of this is a friendship is a relationship that is entered into by individuals, and it is only as good or as close as those individuals choose to make it. Someone has said that if you can count your true friends on the fingers of one hand, you are blessed. A friend is one whom you can be yourself with and never fear that he or she will judge you. A friend is someone that you can confide in with complete trust. A friend is someone you respect and that respects you, not based upon worthiness but based upon a likeness of mind.

Finally, the real definition of a true friend comes from the Apostle Paul: "For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:7-8). "Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends" (John 15:13). Now, that is true friendship!

Thank you Lord for the friends and family at home and at my healthy church home. Everyone...yes everyone needs three healthy homes, a heavenly home, a family home and a church home. We’ve all blown it in sin, we’ve all fallen short of what God’s word requires for righteousness, but He can forgive us. Humbly ask. You can right now.. become 100% sure that you have a heavenly Home with God.. waiting for you.  Come to Christ honestly.. just as you are. Too many put it off until tomorrow and find out that was a bad idea.

The Bible tells us the Antichrist is coming. Not trying to freak anyone out.

Yep, the Antichrist is coming. Not trying to scare anyone--the Bible gives us smart warnings really. But before the Antichrist can emerge here on earth, Jesus will come in the clouds for His Church in the Rapture. 

Born again Christians will be snatched away in a blink. So, as believers, we should not be looking for the Antichrist but for Jesus Christ! He will forgive any who turn and trust in Him. Think about this and respond today. Some religious people are way too focused on works, on demons, on altar boys, on money, on power.. yes on other people and things. 

Let's all get and stay focused on Christ first ..while we can and then be good witnesses for our friends! Dare ya if I may. Let's all boldly share Christ's Gospel and all that the Bible teaches.. with those we love and with others too. Like across the street and across seas. God loves them just as much as He loves us. 

Why be merely religious? Works and cleverness won't get you in and God has never been stiff, distracted, religious or verklempt. He has always been pure, holy, unchanging and wisely practical.

On the horizontal plane lets seek to understand Bible verses, passages and people. It's a good witness. 

What Does the Bible Say About Understanding?

“A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.” Proverbs 18:2
“Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.”  Proverbs 14:29 
“Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.”  Acts 17:11

Productive listening and productive dialogue based on what’s really so is not only good a person, a family, a biz, a city, or a nation.. like for these United States here or for Russia.. it is also good for the whole world.

Why Kurt? Here's why.. cuz people need to understand others and their needs better in order to help address them. People everywhere need non-fake-news and facts to help them make good decisions for their future. Facebook.com/shareJesus

Tests, tribulations and trials.. they happen, but how do they arrive in your life? How do they arrive in your door or Land?

Fifth night of anarchy in French migrant suburb. Sad and praying for the people in France today. They have worse there. Q. What happens when Globalists have their way in a Land? This destructive stuff. 

Some people build you up, and others tear ya down -- some tear down a lot more if we let em. Why invite them in and let them?

Who do you hang close to? You can be edified and inspired instead of down or oppressed. 

We become like our closest friends -- let's choose them wisely. 

What do you do when you find yourself in tests, tribulations or in trials..or surrounded by those who don’t think right and bring em on?  Do you run to the Lord, or do you stick with em or just wallow in your prob or pain? God can meet all your needs. Ask.
What's been going on out there? Watch and pray, be your brother's keeper so to speak.

David Davis resigns as Brexit secretary. It comes as Theresa May contends with a backlash against her plan for Britain's future relationship with the European Union.

"Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out." Proverbs 10:9
It is important to have integrity. God does not want us to be sinful at all, and especially in a way that is deceptive. Where have you grown in integrity?

England: New Female Genital Mutilation Case Every Two Hours.

Bedroom Police: Iranian Teen Detained over Instagram Vids.

Governments, individuals.. it’s just better when we each of us decides to turn and trust.. to get right with and do things God’s way according to the Bible than to insist upon our own way in this world.  
"The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him." Lamentations 3:25 


In Philippians 4:8, we are told to stay focused on things that are true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, and praiseworthy. God wants us to think about good things - things from Him. How do you keep your mind on things of the Lord? Do we ignore what is happening in the world? Nope. Why be so passive.
