Conversation with Constance .... please pray for this sister .... we spoke last night first then today (below) ..... she was backslidden .... her father is a minister ... she was raised in a Christian school but has since slidden back into sinful living and justifying her sin .... when pressed hard with the truth (in love) she did something few do - she sought to justify sin and the recanted upon hearing the naked truth of Scripture preached ... God be praised. Please lift this precious sister in prayer ..... love in Jesus, todd

todd tomasella: here's ps 1 to feed you this morning ok
todd tomasella: one verse at a time
todd tomasella: Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
todd tomasella: But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
todd tomasella: And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
todd tomasella: The ungodly [are] not so: but [are] like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
todd tomasella: Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
todd tomasella: For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
todd tomasella: did u read those?
Constance: yes i did amen
todd tomasella: yes
todd tomasella: realize this .... that the LORD Himself holds you personally responsible to know Him and His Word and to love Him with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength
todd tomasella: there will be no excuse on that Dayu
todd tomasella: Day
if we have time, energy, affections, etc to love and chase other things, we certainly have those same faculties to pursue, love, and know Him
todd tomasella: studying His Word daily is very important
todd tomasella: 2 tim 2:15 says "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
todd tomasella: still with me?
Constance: yes i am
todd tomasella: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge" Hos 4:6
todd tomasella: note "MY PEOPLE"
todd tomasella: Jesus told us that the kingdom of Heaven (not hell) is likened unto 10 virgins - but only 5 made it to the marriage, the other 5 were forever lost
todd tomasella: they fell away due to neglecting their fellowship with the Bridegroom - Jesus
todd tomasella: the ONE who is the "first love" of those who truly love Him - more than self
Constance: hmmm..sorry i was readin that last part over again and again
todd tomasella: good you can print this out or save it to a ms word file if you wish
todd tomasella: ready or not - Jesus is coming
todd tomasella: for "those who are looking for Him" (Heb. 9:28)
todd tomasella: those that hate this world and its wickedness that is in utter rebellion against the One who made and owns the world
todd tomasella: all rebellion and rebels will be judged and eternally condemned
todd tomasella: by Him of whom the Bible says - "the earth is the LORD's (not man's) ..." Ps 24:1
Constance: i just said a short prayer
todd tomasella: good
todd tomasella: remember what Jesus said on the cross? 7 things
todd tomasella: "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit" (Lk. 23:46)
todd tomasella: pray that from the depths of your heart ..... get alone with Him or private and pray that, releasing your whole being to Him who alone is worthy of your worship
todd tomasella: or in your own words and from your own heart, say "Jesus, I lay my life in Your hands"
todd tomasella: "I love You Jesus~"
todd tomasella: !
todd tomasella: God is good precious
todd tomasella: He is going to eternally bless all those who love Him even unto death .... Jesus promised that only those who "endure to the end shall be saved" - Matt. 10:22; 24:13

Here is a brief and interesting conversation that occurred this morning with a lady named Jackie who is not yet saved. Please lift her in prayer to be brought by the LORD to repentance and saving faith in Christ.
Before you read this, ask yourself: What is satan's favorite verse to use against believers? You will see it used in this conversation by this lady. The enemy knows and twists God's Word, using his people to misuse the Scriptures.
“Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” Ps. 127:3
todd tomasella: Good morning Jackie
Jackie: Hi todd
todd tomasella: how are you?
Jackie: wet!!! Been out in the rain for the past few hours doing home visits!!!!
Jackie: How are you?
todd tomasella: ah ok
todd tomasella: i am well ty
todd tomasella: what agency or group do you work with?
Jackie: I work for a private gov't contractor that takes some of the state contracts to work
todd tomasella: ok
Jackie: I currently work with pregnant teens and children that don't have health care
todd tomasella: ok
todd tomasella: it's not abortion is it?
todd tomasella: just out of curiosity and of course concern
Jackie: The girls are usually very pregnant when they get to me and just needing resources
todd tomasella: like the option to murder/abort their child?
Jackie: I give them resources on how to get prenatal care and how to care for themselves financially ect
todd tomasella: ok cool
todd tomasella: hope you don't mind me asking those things
todd tomasella: and that we understand that abortion is cold-blooded, premeditated murder of innocent human lives, precious babies
Jackie: You are entitled to your opinion.......
todd tomasella: well it's God Word
Jackie: also God's word to not judge.......
todd tomasella: "thou shalt not kill" and "no murderer hath eternal life (salvation) abiding in him" Exod. 20:3; 1 John 3:14-15)
todd tomasella: that is a misinterpretation
todd tomasella: He sent His people to "preach the Word" so others can be forewarned that Judgment Day is coming
todd tomasella: and the fires of eternal damnation await all who do not repent and receive Jesus - our only hope
todd tomasella: it's love not hate ..... it is the worst form of hate to just watch friends go to hell without warning them
todd tomasella: but each individual has to make their own choice after being warned
Jackie: that's true
Jackie: I have to get back to work now......Have a wonderful afternoon
todd tomasella: so true Christians must obey Jesus by sharing His soul-saving truth
todd tomasella: you too Jackie
todd tomasella: thank you for talking
