Hi there! My name is Kelly. I'm a mother of 4 and a grandmother of 13 now! I've lived all over the country and even in Hawaii. Right now, I'm currently in Southeast Missouri. Throughout my adult life, I've wanted to find a forum of some sort that encourages other Christian women. I've found wonderful craft blogs, weight loss sites, motherhood sites, book clubs, etc. So I am going to try my hand at a blog that contains a little bit of everything. Grab a cup of coffee and let's chat!!

The love of many will grow cold.

Ok, I'm about to go on a rant/get on my soapbox and babble for a few, because I believe that Jesus has laid on my heart the urge to emphasize a few things that haven't quite been discerned or understood. So please forgive me if this is offensive to you, that is NOT my intent. My intent is to remind you and impress upon you the seriousness of this matter.

There are many things that Christians believe and many things that they don't. Sometimes the issues are doctrinal. Scriptural Doctrine trumps ALL things, period. If it's not in the Bible...it ain't truth.
Many issues that are still argued about today are extra-biblical items. (Extra-Biblical items are topics that many have assumed over the years, ie: who the Restrainer will be, etc. Things that are not specifically written down in the Bible and only assumed.) We all have our belief systems and we all believe we have the correct ones. To be honest, if you read in Daniel, the angel told Daniel to seal up these things for they are not yet to be. Dan 12:7-10.

There are still many truths that we haven't learned from Scripture. And yet folks argue and break fellowship over "assumptions and spiritualizing" the Bible that the Devil is going to take a whole lot of folks, who thought they were Christians, with him.

There is a great "turning away" coming, and I believe it's coming VERY soon. Where people will "turn away from sound doctrine and believe the lies". That includes preachers, teachers, and folks who we always believed were doctrinally correct and sound in their teachings. Have you really and truly read and understood in your heart of hearts that there will be false teachers that WILL deceive many, even those who already call themselves Christians? Some folks who USED TO BE doctrinally sound, teachers, preachers, and evangelists who could make your heart sing and the fire of the Holy Spirit well up in your soul WILL TURN AWAY!! Do you truly understand that these things are going on today? If you do not understand these things in your heart of hearts, then I beg you to hit your knees and pray to our Lord Jesus Christ for wisdom, knowledge, and discernment of the Scriptures. HE WILL ANSWER THAT PRAYER!

Eph 1:17-19 "17that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. 18I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might…"

Prov 2:6,9-11 "For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.... Then you will understand what is right and just and fair--every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you."

Matthew 24:4-13 "4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."

Please, above all things, examine the Scriptures to make sure that what is being said, preached, taught, etc., is in there. It breaks my heart to think that probably more than half the people I love and have befriended won't be in Heaven to greet me and I them.
With all love, in Christ, Kelly
