Below are some of the songs that we sung during “worship music” time at church this past Sunday (April 2nd 2017), which I had to reflect and share on how God personally spoke to me through each individual song. Feel free to share yours down below…

Music: Karaoke-“Shekinah Glory” by Crazy lil’ Sal creativemusicartsy.wordpress.com

“I Worship You In The Spirit” Shekinah Glory Ministry lyrics

Sal: May this song be a prayer daily! We need more of Him throughout the week (not just on church days). “We want more” (releasing of His power to give us strength or whether for His healing power to be show to the people around you that might need it).
How does this song speak to you?

Music: Karaoke-“Holy Spirit” (originally by Bryan & Katie Torwalt) by Crazy lil’ Sal creativemusicartsy.wordpress.com

Holy Spirit – Bryan and Katie Torwalt – Lyric Video

Sal: Let us bring His presence outside of the “Church” walls! ..to our families, communities, workplace, nations, etc…! After recording this and singing it again, I remembered how this particular verse took out..

“..Help up become more aware of your presence…”

I pray that we all become more aware of your presence and how God is trying to “speak” to us in our daily life circumstances.

How does this song speak to you?

Music: Karaoke-“Come Alive… Dry Bones” (originally by Lauren Daigle) by Crazy lil’ Sal creativemusicartsy.wordpress.com

“Come Alive (Dry Bones)” featuring Lauren Daigle – Live from the CentricWorship Retreat

Sal: I thought of the game of “trench” I used to play at school growing -up on how we had to use a kick ball or something soft (ball) and hit one of our opponents to get freed from the “dungeon” behind enemy lines. We as “believers” need to take an “active” role (e.g. intercessory prayer and asking God how we can “reach out” to them) like this game on “rescuing” fellow brethren who have “backslidden” from their faith.

How does this song speak to you?

Why Some Parents Say Christians Should Watch Disney’s Beauty and the Beast 03-19-2017 www1.cbn.com
“..When Disney announced it would feature an “exclusively gay moment” in its new “Beauty and the Beast” remake, Christians everywhere vowed to boycott the movie. Despite the backlash, some Christians say parents should think twice about prohibiting their children from seeing the film.

CBN News caught up with folks who saw the movie opening weekend to find out what they think about the controversy. Click the video above to see what they said.

One of those parents is Sarah Wallace, a blogger for The Gospel Centered Mom, and mother of four. She says the movie gives parents the opportunity to teach their children how to interract with a world that loves sin.

“This is the culture God has appointed for us to raise our children in. We need to know how to live in it and interact with it,” she says. Instead of ignoring a culture that celebrates homosexualtiy, Wallace argues that Christians should send their children out into the world with strong knowledge of what the Bible says. ..”
*see Homosexual Acts a Sin? Judge Not! goodnewseverybodycom.wordpress.com

Sal: I’ve seen various versions of this story, but somehow this particular movie inspired me to write about this one. One major reason was the character…

Hattie Morahan as Agathe /en.wikipedia.org
“..– a reclusive, old woman who lives in Villeneuve who, in reality, is a beautiful enchantress in disguise responsible for cursing the Prince. She watches and manipulates the events between Belle and the Prince, secretly acting as their guardian.[18]

Morahan also narrates the prologue…”

I saw her as the “guardian” angel and a particular symbol in the Bible of someone we “humans” need to watch for in life. Can’t let looks disguise you as the theme of this movie pretty much teaches..

SPOILER ALERT!!!

What’s Up With Agathe In ‘Beauty And The Beast’? She’s A Complicated Character, To Say The Least By Olivia Truffaut-Wong bustle.com
“..Just a nameless and vindictive creature in the animated film, the Enchantress depicted in the new Beauty and the Beast, as played by Hattie Morahan, has a life beyond just cursing a spoiled Prince who refused to give her shelter. Named Agathe, the Enchantress appears in the prologue scene to curse the Beast, but she also pops up throughout the film as a villager. Agathe makes her debut in the film as the provincial town’s local old maid. She is an unmarried woman left begging on the streets, used by Gaston as a cautionary tale after Belle tells him she doesn’t want to go out with him. Pointing to Agathe, Gaston warns Belle that, in this town, an unmarried woman is destined to end up on the street…

Perphas the most significant change to the story in the live action Beauty and the Beast is the presence of Agathe at the end of the film. In the movie, the last rose petal has already fallen when Belle tells the Beast that she loves him. Belle didn’t break the curse at all, Agathe did. When the townspeople rush the castle, she enters with them, slipping in among the angry mob and making her way up to the West Wing of the castle. After witnessing Belle’s declaration, Agathe makes the conscious decision to lift the curse. In other words, she plays an active role in creating their Happily Ever After. Ultimately, the power to break the curse is in her hands and hers alone. She’s not just a random witch, she’s a woman with agency….”

Beauty and the Beast (2017 soundtrack) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia wikipedia.org
“…Condon originally planned on not only drawing inspiration from the original film, but he also planned to include most, if not all, of the songs composed by Alan Menken, Howard Ashman and Tim Rice from the Broadway musical, with the intention of making the film as a “straight-forward, live-action, large-budget movie musical”. Menken returned to score the film’s music, which features songs from the original film by him and Ashman, plus new material written by Menken and Rice. Menken said the film would not include songs that were written for the Broadway musical and instead, created four new songs. On January 19, 2017, it was confirmed by both Disney and Celine Dion, singer of the original title track, that she will perform one of the new original songs, “How Does a Moment Last Forever”, to play over the end titles.[1][4] The film will also feature a new version of “Beauty and the Beast” by Ariana Grande and John Legend.[1][5] Some songs contained Ashman’s unused lyrics that were cut from the animated version…”

Reflection: Church Service-“Breaking that Spiritual Dam”

February 20, 2017 at 3:54 am | Posted in Breaking, church, dam, Reflection, service, spiritual, Uncategorized | Leave a comment

During worship service this morning at my local church, I shared some thoughts that I felt eager to share with the church body during “shares” after the worship music:

I shared that I’ve been interested in the recent news in Oroville, California…

… and been following up on it. I felt that their is a lot of symbolism with “man-made” dams that have been constructed around the world with our “spiritual” walk. The dams can be a symbolism of “lies” (e.g. “Your not good enough” , You are a loser”, etc..)that has been spoken to each of us in various ways that hinder us to receive more what God can do through us.

Before writing this, I was reminded of this “old-school” worship song..

https://wordpress.com/notifications
Let The River Flow Lyrics Darrell Evans

I feel that we need to let God destroy that “spiritual dam” in our personal lives in order for His “Holy Spirit” to move in us mightier as His children.

What are you currently personally “struggling” with? Do you trust that God will get your through it? I then shared one of the songs that was sung during worship on “I’m NO longer a slave to fear..”, which I shared last year at church that we can substitute “fear” with whatever (e.g. sin, depression, alcohol, deception…

drugs, an orphan, anger, cancer, PTSD, shame , jealousy, greed, stress, bullying, sexual impurity, lost, past, etc..) is keeping you “bondage”.. Keep repeating this to get it in your head until you have been release from these. This is part of meditation w/ God’s word (Bible verses on each one).

After my share, the guest speakers (Dennis & Zoe) from Pillager, MN shared about their recent trip to the Philippines. This family duo modeled how God can use us . They went to the Philippines to minister to the people there in different barangays/villages in various ways (e.g. healing, words of knowedledge, encouragement, etc..) This was such an encouragement for all of that we don’t have to depend on “ministers” or “church leaders” to do God’s work. We all can be used by Him to bring the taste of God’s kingdom on earth.

Hope and pray this will touch you and may God use each of us mightily in these days and please pray for the people of Oroville and the communities in the valley downstream of the #Orovillespillway or #Orovilledam. Feel free to share your thoughts, prayer requests, etc..

Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl Performance: Most Talked About Moments!

Lady Gaga: The Real Winner of Super Bowl 51?
By Jade Scipioni Published February 06, 2017 Media & Advertising FOXBusiness foxbusiness.com
“..“Lady Gaga’s performance ranks as a solid No. 2 next to the late Prince. Her decision to focus on unity, instead of a Trump divide was the right card to be played. From the rooftop performance to the drones, her performance embodied what truly makes America great,” Tony Cutillo, Real Sports Insider and Fantasy Sports Expert told FOX Business.

Lady Gaga SUPER BOWL LI Halftime Show Channels LUCIFER – Illuminati Alchemical Ritual EXPOSED

FaceLikeTheSun
“Published on Feb 5, 2017

The Illuminati are a group of men who believe that they have descended from an ET race. The Biblical account of Genesis 6 describes those who mated with human women, and bore giants. The strange reality is that the Illuminists believe that they are the sons of God, and by proxy, the descendants of the Nephilim. All of this has become public. And at the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime show, it was no different. Lucifer was exonerated and worshiped by Lady Gaga, and millions of unsuspecting Americans and citizens of the world.

Today’s performance at the Super Bowl 2017 Patriots vs. The Falcons, Lady Gaga performed the half time show as Lucifer / Anti-Christ / Satan / Devil in a show packed with subliminal Luciferian / Illuminati / Freemason Symbolism.

Edit: Since this performance is centred around Revelation 9.11, it has become apparent to me that the twin towers destruction are represented on the stage – makes a lot of sense. Very disturbing that the nation watches this without even realising. That’s the nature of witchcraft. Thanks for the heads up. God bless”

Daniel’s Vision of the Ram and Goat
1In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar a vision appeared unto me, even unto me Daniel, after that which appeared unto me at the first. 2And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I was at Shushan in the palace, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in a vision, and I was by the river of Ulai. 3Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last. 4I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and became great.

5And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. 6And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power. 7And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand. 8Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.

9And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. 10And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. 11Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. 12And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered. 13Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot? 14And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

Reflection: Thankful for God’s protection while driving

February 18, 2016 at 6:23 am | Posted in accidents, car, Reflection, Uncategorized | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I decided to take some time to reflect on some past “close” car accidents after a recent one this past weekend. I just thought of others as I reflected on writing about this. I just want to encourage you to always pray for God’s protection (e.g. “armor of God“) daily-not just driving, but every time you start your day…

This past Monday (February 15th 2016) after visiting a friend in Wadena, I was driving back home and almost got hit while going down main street in a town called Parkers Prairie. I can still remember a vivid scene of this almost close accident. I was driving through town and this guy in a pick-up truck just ran through a stop sign and somehow didn’t see me. I could even see his face as he just stopped almost hitting me head-on (driver’s side-me). I swerved to my right to avoid him hitting me, but thankful that he stopped. Fortunately, the weather was very nice and road conditions weren’t icy.


“Pic was taken on my way to Wadnea”

After reflecting on this, I started to remember a near head-on-collision close to my hometown of St. Paul sometime in the summer of 2015 with my mom in the car. I was going north on Ruth St. over I-94 when a car was in my lane going head-on. Thank God, that particular drive swerved back to his own lane.

Deer Encounters:

I have had two encounters with hitting a deer , but never had any damages:

My first deer encounter was when I was coming back to Morris after visiting a friend in Wheaton, Minnesota many years go (2006?). I was driving 55mph (speed limit) at night and just clipped deer as I lightly touched my brakes as I saw it “last minute” jumping out of the ditch.

My second deer encounter was coming back to Morris on 59 (state highway) last year with almost similar “touch and go”.

Car Stalled

I had a loose battery in my car and finally got it fixed after getting stalled in the middle of I-94 (going back to Morris from St. Paul) in a hot summer of August of 2015. Fortunately, I was able to start my car after a quick adjustment of the positive wire. Luckily, it started right away during a 10mph bumper to bumper 2 lane only slow traffic. It was kind of embarrassing, but would laugh and grateful to God getting me of this situation safely.

Car Accident(s)

I’ve had to at least share one (“only”) car accidents…so far (God willingly..no more). My freshmen year in college, I was driving back to Morris during a winter storm with some friends. This was a time that we didn’t have any social networks of alerting us “no” school. I was driving back to UMM with some college friends. Interstate I-94 was pretty slipper and this semi truck was nearing my bumper going fast. Being a “rookie” driver (1st year driving), I was scared, so I pushed the accelerator to avoid this near semi-truck getting close and suddenly the car ahead of me pushed their brakes. To avoid a head on-collision of this vehicle’s bumper. I swerved to the right immediately avoiding this car’s back. However, I didn’t want to go to the ditch, so I swerved to the left back to traffic. Unfortunately, I hit this car’s side door and caused a dent (my car insurance went up after this 😦 ). I was thankful that the accident didn’t get as worse that it could’ve been (e.g. no one got hurt-“things can be replaced, but lives can’t”). After this accident, I’ve learned to not get stressed out when a big semi-truck driver is behind me or I just try to avoid getting close to them if possible. Sometimes, you can’t avoid certain situations, so I usually just trust in God with prayer as I listen to praise music on the radio during “challenging driving circumstances”.

This past Sunday, my local church had some guest speakers after a weekend conference (Friday’s notes & Saturday’s notes) for women in our fellowship community. I was actually personally praying for this weekend conference for God to personally touch my sisters in the Lord. Well, I came to church yesterday morning after unintentionally staying up too late. I was so blessed that I had to share…

Here were the songs Cherish led our church family into praise and songs…dancing too!

“Freedom in this place..”

“We Want Change in the Spirit”…open my eyes to see , my ears to hear..on what your saying God…to me”

MCC: Worship Service with Cherish

“Bringing order, bringing life….Father you know best”

“Consuming Raging Fire”…fire,fire, You are our consuming fire”..burn me up, burn me up,….consume me, consume me,…He is residing in me”.
-return to the 1st love
During worship, I felt some spoken words to me, so I had to write these down..

“I’m royalty, I have destiny…I’m waking now, it’s time to shine. I was born for such a time as this..”

“We worship you Jesus…let everything that has breath praise the Lord”

“My determined purpose is to know You”…

“waves” (look in the concordance Bible on this word)

“8”For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD.”Isaiah 55

Other Songs led by Cherish:

Q: God’s ready, are you?
A: feet of readiness (Ephesians 6)

This was a word that led me to write this..

“You feel you are not significant, stop comparing/measuring (2 Corinthians 10) yourself with others around you. You are significant (see 1 Corinthians 12) and loved in God’s eyes

“my determined purpose is to know your Word”

Word-“freedom”

Sal’s: I thought of this old cartoon…

Ephesians 4:3

” 22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. 23 When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.”Matthew 10:22-24 & Mark 13

Q: Are you willing to change your thinking? (e.g. religious traditions)
A: Renew mind (e.g. Romans 12)

-Cherish K. of Oasis International

“8”For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. 8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. 8″For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. 8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 8For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways.” This is the LORD’s declaration.”
9″As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55

“Return to the Beginning”
*I thought of my song that I wrote last year (“Come Back to the Beginning”)

Word-:line-up with God’s thinking
