Word of God

Encouragement When Tempted

[Our Father in heaven]
Don't allow us to be tempted.
Instead, rescue us from the evil one.

Matthew 6:13

We need to hold on to our declaration of faith: We have a
superior chief priest who has gone through the heavens. That
person is Jesus, the Son of God. We have a chief priest who is able
to sympathize with our weaknesses. He was tempted in every
way that we are, but he didn't sin. So we can go confidently to the
throne of God's kindness to receive mercy and find kindness,
which will help us at the right time.

Hebrews 4:14-16

God can guard you so that you don't fall and so that you can
be full of joy as you stand in his glorious presence without fault.

Jude 24

So place yourselves under God's authority. Resist the devil,
and he will run away from you.

James 4:7

There isn't any temptation that you have experienced which
is usually for humans. God, who faithfully keeps his promises,
will not allow you to be tempted beyond your power to resist. But
when you are tempted, he will also give you the ability to endure
the temptation as your way of escape.

1 Corinthians 10:13

Blessed are those who endure when thet are tested. When
they pass the test, they will recieve the crown of life that God has
promised to those who love him. When someone is tempted, he
shouldn't say that God is tempting him. God can't be tempted by
evil, and God doesn't tempt anyone. Everyone is tempted by his
own desires as the lure him away and trap him. The desire
becomes pregnant and gives birth to sin. When sin grows up, it
gives birth to death.

James 1:12-15

My sin,
pay attention to my words.
Treasure my commands that are within you.
Obey my commands so that you may live.
Follow my teachings just as you protect the
pupil of your eye.
Tie them on your fingers.
Write them on the tablet of your heart.
Say to wisdom, "You are my sister."
Give the name, "my relative" to undestanding
in order to guard yourself from an
adulterous woman,
from a loose woman with ger smooth talk.

Proverbs 7:1-5

Because Jesus experienced temptation when he suffered, he
is able to help others when they are tempted.

Hebrews 2:18

Computer VIRUS


This was sent to me by our son
Who is in charge of the computers
For the state of Florida~
Whenever he receives anything like this,
It is a warning to the state,
As well as all us little people—


Anyone-using Internet mail
Such as Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL and so on.

This information arrived this morning,
Direct from both Microsoft and Norton.

Please send it to everyone you know
Who has access to the internet.

You may receive an apparently harmless email
Titled ‘Mail Server Report’

If you open either file,
A message will appear on your screen saying:
‘it is too late now, your life is no longer beautiful….’

Subsequently you will
And the person who sent it to you
Will gain access to your name, e-mail and password.

This is a new virus which started to circulate
On Saturday afternoon.
AOL has already confirmed the severity,
And the anti virus software’s
Are not capable of destroying it.

The virus has been created by a hacker
Who calls himself ‘life owner’.

Joke Time: MAN vs. WOMAN

She's sitting at the table with her gourmet coffee.
Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box..
Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week.
Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl.
And her husband is on the back of the milk carton.

'Cash, check or charge?' I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase.
As she fumbled for her wallet , I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.
'So, do you always carry your TV remote?' I asked.'No,' she replied, 'but my husband refused to come shopping with me,
And I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.'

I know I'm not going to understand women.
I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax,
Pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root,
And still be afraid of a spider.

While attending a Marriage Seminar dealing with communication,Tom and his wife Grace listened to the instructor,'It is essential that husbands and wives know each other's likes and dislikes.'He addressed the man,'Can you name your wife's favorite flower?'Tom leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and whispered, 'It's Pillsbury, isn't it?

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up & down the aisles..
The sales girl notices him and asks him if she can help him.
He answers that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife..
She directs him down the correct aisle.
A few minutes later, he deposits a huge bag of cotton balls and a ball of string on the counter.
She says, confused, 'Sir, I thought you were looking for some tampons for your wife?
He answers, 'You see, it's like this, yesterday, I sent my wife to the store
To get me a carton of cigarettes, and she came back with a tin of tobacco
And some rolling papers; cause it's sooo-ooo--oo- ooo much cheaper.
So, I figure if I have to Roll my own . So does she.(I figure this guy is the one on the milk carton!)

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
Neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,
The husband asked sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?
''Yep,' the wife replied, 'in-laws.'

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day...30,000 to a man's 15,000.
The wife replied, 'The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men...
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, 'What?'

A man said to his wife one day, 'I don't know how you can be
So stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.
'The wife responded, 'Allow me to explain.
God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;
God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you !

A man and his wife were having an argument about who
Should brew the coffee each morning.
The wife said, 'You should do it because you get up first,
And then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee.
The husband said, 'You are in charge of cooking around here and
You should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.
'Wife replies, 'No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee.
'Husband replies, 'I can't believe that, show me.
'So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says 'HEBREWS'

The Silent Treatment
A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment.
Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake himat 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper,
'Please wake me at 5:00 AM.' He left it where he knew she would find it.
The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight
Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed.
The paper said, 'It is 5:00 AM.
Wake up.'Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece

DO NOT Dial Area Code 809, 284 and 876 are scam!

We actually received a call last week from the 809 area code.
The woman said 'Hey, this is Karen. Sorry I missed you--get back to us quickly. I have something important to tell you.'
Then she repeated a phone number beginning with 809.
We did not respond. Then this week, we received the following e-mail:
Do Not DIAL AREA CODE 809, 284, AND 876. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION PROVIDED TO US BY AT&T. DON'T EVER DIAL AREA CODE 809 This one is being distributed all over the US .... This is pretty scary, especially given the way they try to get you to call. Be sure you read this and pass it on. They get you to call by telling you that it is information about a family member who has been ill or to tell you someone has been arrested, died, or to let you know you have won a wonderful prize, etc.. In each case, you are told to call the 809 number right away. Since there are so many new area codes these days, people unknowingly return these calls. If you call from the U.S. , you will apparently be charged $2425per-minute. Or, you'll get a long recorded message. The point is, they will tryto keep you on the phone as long as possible to increase the charges. WHY IT WORKS: The 809 area code is located in the Dominican Republic ... The charges afterward can become a real nightmare. That's because you didactually make the call. If you complain, both your local phone company and your long distance carrier will not want to get involved and will mos tlikely tell you that they are simply providing the billing for the foreign company. You'll end up dealing with a foreign company that argues they have done nothing wrong.
Please forward this entire message to your friends, family andcolleagues to help them become aware of this scam.

Aspirin and Heart Attacks

If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, do take it at night.
The reason: aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life". Therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the aspirin would be strongest in your system.
FYI, aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest, . years. (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar.)
Please read on. WHY ASPIRIN BY YOUR BED save lives ... It is important to always have ASPIRIN in the home!!!
ABOUT HEART ATTACKS There are other symptoms of an heart attack besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating, however these symptoms may also occur less frequently. NOTE : There may be no pain in the chest during an heart attack. The majority of people (about 60%) who had an heart attack during their sleep, did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep. If that happens, IMMEDIATELY DISSOLVE TWO ASPIRINS IN YOUR MOUTH and swallow them with a bit of water. Afterwards, phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by and state "HEART ATTACK!!!" and that you have taken 2 ASPIRINS Take a seat on a chair or sofa and wait for their arrival and .... DO NOT LIE DOWN !!!
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... it's about learning to dance in the rain.

Here are some INFORMATIONS about LIPSTICK before you buy to own or to give as a gift:

Something to consider next time you go shopping for Lipstick......
This comes from someone who works in the breast cancer unit at Mt. Sinai Hospital , in Toronto .
From: Dr. Nahid Neman, if there is a female you care anything about, Share this with her. I did!!!!! I am also sharing this with the males on my e-mail list, Because they need to tell the females they care about as well!
Recently a lipstick brand called 'Red Earth' Decreased their prices from $67 to $9.90. It contained lead. Lead is a chemical which causes cancer.

The lipstick brands that contain lead are:

RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)

The higher the lead content,
The greater the chance of causing cancer.
After doing a test on lipsticks, It was found that the Y.S.L. Lipstick
Contained the most amount of lead.. Watch out for those lipsticks Which are supposed to stay longer. If your lipstick stays longer, it is Because of the higher content of lead.

Here is the test you can do yourself:

1. Put some lipstick on your hand.
2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.
3. If the lipstick colour changes to black, then you know the lipstick contains lead.
This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Centre Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer, Especially breast cancer....

"At the Dentist Office"

The Dentist pulls out a freezing needle to give the man a shot.
"No way! No needles! I hate needles," the patient said.
The Dentist starts to hook up the laughing gas and the man objects.
"I can't do the gas thing. The thought of having the gas mask on is suffocating me!"
The Dentist then asks the patient if he has any objection to taking a pill..
"No objection," the patient says.
"I'm fine with pills."
The Dentist then returns and says, "Here's a Viagra tablet."
The patient says, "Wow! I didn't know Viagra worked as a pain killer!!!"
"It doesn't," said the Dentist, "but it will give you something to hold onto when I pull your tooth.

Joke Time....

I was in the pub yesterday
when I suddenly realized I desperately needed to fart.
The music was really, really loud,
so I timed my farts with the beat.
After a couple of songs, I started to feel better.
I finished my pint and noticed that everybody was staring at me.
Then I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my iPod.
