Knowing Jesus as Your Lord

“Most people that say they know me, have never known me.”

That was what the Lord said to me during a visitation I had a few years ago. I really didn’t know Him that well back then either, but I thought it was very sad that people would say they know him, but never know Him.

Do you know Him? He is Love and He always does good and wants us to do the same and be the same. If love destroys evil and God is Love, why did we remove God from our schools and act like He isn’t real or the solution to every problem? Why would people go to church on Sunday, but

never mention the Lord to anyone the rest of the week?

Why do people pretend to believe when they clearly don’t believe or understand a thing about God or His Word? I say that because of what the world has been exalting and no one bothered to exalt the Truth of God’s Word to make it bigger than issues like Covid.

The people chose fear over faith and the Word of God was not given a place to show God’s faithfulness to his Word. Why did Jesus die for our sins if the people are all still believing in sickness and everything related to a cursed life?

Faith is what you believe for before you see it. I didn’t see the Lord, but I believed what His Word said, because why would He say it if it wasn’t true? If He said that all those who put their faith in Jesus will not be put to shame but they will be given the right to become Sons and daughters of God. So believing in Jesus gives you the right to be a son or daughter of God, and if I believe that I am now redeemed from the cursed life and given new life and am now a brand new creation that will begin transformation as I renew my mind in the Truth -Word of God. Once you know the Truth, the Truth will set you free! How? Because that is when you understand that you are free from all of the things that the world lives in constant fear and torment over, but you are free from it all in Christ once you read and understand the truth of God’s grace.

Obviously not many people have chosen to renew their minds in the Truth yet, because we saw what happened with Covid. You don’t have to be afraid anymore. You really can have peace and live above the realm of doubt and unbelief. Their is a higher realm for those who do know the Truth and give themselves over to God’s better pathway of peace.

The world hates to hear about it, because it wants to exalt every vile thing instead and cause the people to live in constant dread, lack and sickness. Let it all go and come home to the truth of what Jesus paid for! Freedom and a brand new life filled with God’s Spirit. Jesus is the only way to the Father, so accept what he already did for us and begin a new life that is far above this earths chaos and strife.

Let God love and nourish you so that you can be full of divine life and walk in the realm of the supernatural. It’s not a fairytale. It’s the reality that most people ignore so they can live in worry and lack. Don’t settle for the lies, but run to the Truth and live your life hidden in Christ! It’s worth everything to know Jesus! He is everything and more! Just ask him to come into your heart and make you into a new creation so that you can have the power to overcome anything and all of Heaven to fight for you! It’s just stupid to ignore such a great salvation that has been made available to all people.

Don’t bring your misery to me anymore unless you are willing to let it all go and accept the good life of Christ. I have heard enough negativity and bad reports, so now I am going to speak and exalt a new report and a new story of the free gift of life in Jesus. The spirit of Life in you means you won’t have to fear sickness anymore! Although some still do for some reason.

Jesus said that those who follow him can ask for anything that they desire and it will be done for them! Anything! It also says in the scriptures that NOTHING by any means will harm you! You are given all authority over the power of the enemy in Jesus! That is authority to break the powers of sickness and all evil! So come on people! Let’s act like we are really Christians and not a bunch of doubters and faithless people oppressed by fear.

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Keep your thoughts from all negative and destructive things, because a thought produces feelings which lead to actions or inaction, which keeps people from fulfilling their calling in Christ.  What you think on will eventually take growth in your heart and begin to produce a harvest of either good or bad in your daily life.  If we take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ Jesus, we will be allowing only Truth to be planted and rooted in our hearts, but if we ignore such a great salvation as Christ in us, we will find ourselves buried under a pile of weeds when we don’t tend to the inner garden of our hearts.

Understanding is needed and unity in the Holy Spirit will create a beautiful harvest of righteousness.  We need to extend grace to others and show them that Christ is in us and that healing is still for today, as well as supernatural peace that the world doesn’t understand.  There should be no jealousy or evil working in its members. Generosity, kindness, meekness, and humility should be in every individual and not just a few.

So now hope, faith and love remain, and the greatest of these is love. God is Love,and we should all resemble him as a new creation in Christ.

Crusade-noun

US /kruˈseɪd/

a long and determined attempt to achieve something you strongly believe in:

We believe in LOVE.  We believe in helping others and promoting the good of ALL the people.  We refuse to ignore anyone in need when we are able to help them.  We choose to bless and pray for all people so that we might live in a peaceful habitation without fear or dread.  When people begin to pray prayers in agreement with each other and God’s Word, communities begin to change quickly!  Evil is destroyed by love, but anger and strife cause division and all types of negativity that breed more evil, so we avoid attacking, blaming, shaming, condemning or any contribution to the wickedness.

Love, honor and respect for God and others are godly characteristics and the way of the Kingdom of God.

Love defined by the NIV Bible

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

I was a relentless volunteer sent by God to correct oppressions and re-build the devastated communities left behind after the worst economic collapse in our nation’s history.  God spoke to me out of a whirlwind that was spinning outside my window one day, and told me that He was now arousing Himself to come out and trample down the enemy that had caused so much suffering.  He told me that I didn’t have to worry anymore, because He was stepping into the middle of the mess and would put all of my enemies under my feet.  He went on to say that the next thing to happen was for us to go up.  He said that before that can happen people must turn and help each other.

The Crusaders of Love are anointed sons and daughters of the living God working together to produce a beautiful harvest of joyful hearts that are filled with praises and thanksgiving to God.  We invite anyone that has the heart of Christ to join us in bringing love and light to all those in darkness.  We are not preachers, but we are all Spirit-filled Believers that go when and where we are called to help.  We work with organizations, individuals, churches, cities, governments and nations to ensure the love of God is poured out to all in need.  If you would like to know more, please use the contact us form to email us.

When the Miraculous Explodes and People Know What is Right

About a year ago, I was just driving around allowing God’s Holy Spirit to lead me, when I noticed a woman standing on the corner of the freeway exit holding up a sign asking for help. At that time, I was in the furthest lane from her and unable to give her anything before the light changed, but I felt God telling me to go back and help her.
I went back on the freeway the direction that I had just come, and exited a mile later to enter back towards the freeway the direction that would lead me back to her. It was a bit of a process to get back to her, but it is never too much to do for another human being in need of help.
I had plenty of time to pray during this ten minute turn around process, so I prayed that God would use the $27 that I had and multiply it to be enough for whatever it was that she was needing at that time. I told Him that I didn’t know how He would do that, but I only knew that nothing was impossible for Him, so I would only believe that He would make it happen.
When I was sitting at the light where the woman stood the first time, not one person acknowledged the lady or offered her any assistance. This time when I arrived back to that same light, I could feel the air was changed, but I couldn’t get the woman’s attention to even give her the items I had for her. I was only one car away from where she was, but she was so broken at that point that she couldn’t even lift up her head to see that I was trying to get her attention. My music was playing the most beautiful song, and it was so loud that all the cars had to hear it. The song filled the air and the atmosphere began to shift.
I asked God what to do about the woman since she wouldn’t look up, and at that moment a car honked their horn. I looked up to see if the light changed, but the car hadn’t honked about the light. The person who honked was waving at the woman with the sign to come and get what they had in their hand for her. As I sill had my hand out the window, she ran over to my car first. I watched as almost every car at that light had a person putting their hand out the windows to hand the woman the help she needed that day. If a person didn’t have their hand out at first, they all began to see what the rest were doing and that caused them to open their hearts and offer help to the woman too.
I had also prayed before handing the items to the lady that God would instantly revive her with a quickening in her Spirit of hope. I watched as the most amazing miracle took place that day. As the woman ran from car to car before the light changed, her whole life was changed. When she was running back to her stuff on the corner after collecting all the gracious gifts from the many people in their cars, she stopped right by my car window and mouthed, “Thank you so much!” She was smiling from ear to ear and my heart was so full of love for her and for the God that cared so much for each and every one of His creation.
I knew that God always heard my prayers, and that He was the One leading me each day as I would drive about the Valley streets never knowing where I would end up or who I was going to help, but what God did that day for that broken-hearted woman on the corner was so beautiful that it changed me forever.
I knew now that God would always provide and that God does make a way even in the most difficult situations. I prayed that God would put in others the same passion and desire that He had given me to pray for others around them, and to give them boldness to believe and act on doing good deeds for others.
I know that many people couldn’t understand why I would seemingly waste my time and resources to do random acts of kindness each day, but I was never really doing random things. I was always led to the people that God wanted to help, because they had either been praying to Him for help, or they were ready to give up completely and needed to know that there was still hope if they would only believe and pray to God for all of their needs.
I don’t usually get to know the outcome later for the people that I help, but I am confident in God’s power and love, so I know that whatever I ask Him to do for the people I help, He will do it. When I have the time to ask a person their name, I always add their name to my list of people that I pray over during difficult days. There are many that I never get to know their names, and I can’t even recall all of the times and people that I have helped, but I know that God knows who those people are, so I will just pray and ask Him to continue to comfort and provide for those people, so that they never feel alone or hopeless.
Once people understand that they are truly and deeply loved, they no longer see only their circumstances or problems. They begin to see the lives of others that they can then help lift up around them, and that is how we bring the Kingdom of God into the midst of us. The evil begins to flee and wickedness shuts its mouth.
I have no special abilities or gifts that aren’t available to all of us. I simply ask for what is needed and believe that God will supply those things. My hope is that this will boost the faith and confidence of others to begin to act in love and believe in the love that frees us all from the bondage and corruption of this world.

“You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat…”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭25:4‬

“In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:10‬

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭15:13‬ ‭

How to Overcome Through Sufferings

www.bible.com/59/mat.5.38-48.esv

““You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ But I say to you, Do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if anyone would sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who begs from you, and do not refuse the one who would borrow from you. “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:38-48‬ ‭ESV‬‬

This was my heart and my focus in 2014, and the only thing that has changed is that I found the One that is able to help end such evils. His name is Jesus, and he is the only one that is able to change us, and reconcile us back to our Father who will protect and keep us from the evils of this world as we choose to hide in His heart.

D.O.V.E.

For as long as I can remember, a little voice inside of me has told me that I need to be an advocate for children who need protection and justice, but until a few years ago, I wasn’t sure what that really meant.   I never thought that I could make a difference, so like many others, I would write out checks to charities and that was the extent of my contribution, but that all changed the day I saw a news story air about a little girl who had lost her life while attending a new day care.

My friend and I had just closed my boutique for the day, and the nightly news was playing on the television set in the back room.  My attention immediately shifted towards the television when I heard the news anchor talking about another child death in the Valley.  The story described how…

The Night is Far Gone…

Love is the only thing that can destroy evil completely, so it is time for this nation to unite and do what is good and right by helping each other.

Does that mean that people should abandon the belief systems that have been passed down for centuries, or that people should ignore or overlook what society deems as good or evil?  Yes, I believe that it is time for all people to awaken to what is actually good and right, and to stop criticizing or condemning others for their shortcomings.  The truth is that no one, NOT ONE human being aside from Jesus Christ has ever been found to be perfect, and since the only perfect person was killed by all of the imperfect ones to prove to the world what LOVE is worth, maybe it is time we all turn our hearts toward love.  

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.  It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.  Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never ends.  God is love.  When people say they know God, but have never known God, the world looks like chaos, confusion, strife, bitter, abusive and complacent mixed with greedy, angry, condemning, shameful, disrespectful, overachievers, doubters, haters and a few believers.  Even though people may not know God, He knows all of us. He longs to reveal himself to those that have been forgotten or overlooked by the world.  He wants everyone to know love, and He is love.

Romans 13: 1-14

1Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval,for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed.

Fulfilling the Law Through Love

Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

11 Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.12 The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13 Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. 14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

The justice of God is that all forgive and receive forgiveness if we are expecting mercy and grace for our own lives through the blood of Jesus!
