Hi there, everyone! We have a brand new Challenge happening this entire month at 613 Avenue Create! As always, it's Anything Goes with optional theme of "Vintage." I want to make sure to wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS in advance. This is my favorite time of the year because the whole world acknowledges the birth of God's One and Only Son, Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.
It's hard to think that we're already on the last month of the year and there are so many things that happened the whole year that we'd rather not be reminded of. So many deaths surrounding the controversial pandemic beginning of the year, calamities, government betrayal perpetrated by our own citizens (enemies from within). They formed radical groups that seek to destroy our values, promote cancel culture and division in a never seen before level of extremism aided by the mainstream media that no longer report the truth. Those that hold to Godly principles and values who love God, life and country are being silenced by the elite who happened to hold power and ownership of many businesses and resources in every spheres of our society. They no longer hide their Satanic agenda which is to turn this country into a globalists, communist/socialists society where Antichrist and his elite minions can decide the fate of many.
The question is, why are these radical foul and loud mouths "so-called citizens" want to inflict this despicable harm to America? Do they hate their children so much that they want to deprive them of the freedom they themselves enjoy when their families arrived here to find greener pasture? To this day, there are many people around the world who would like the privilege to live in this country. I haven't seen anyone arrested for trying to leave America to relocate somewhere unless they are criminals. American citizens enjoy our God-given rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The government is established by the people and for the people. It's not perfect but ideal for those who love and fear God. But you see, Satan's minions don't like that. Anything or anyone that exalts God is hated and attacked. The devil plants his people in the different spheres of our society and invoke the powers of darkness (give them fame, riches and influence) to disguise themselves as light-bearers to deceive the weak in spirit and the gullible. And many of them are hiding under their so-called religious affiliation (religion). Their goal is to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10)! Can you see these in our society today? Be very careful whom you choose to listen to for motivation, encouragement and direction---Spiritual or Secular teachers. God's Word said in 2 Peter 2:1-3, "But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping." These leaders (influencers) are after power, fame and riches in this world. They don't care for the next generation nor do they care where their souls would go for eternity when it comes time. In their foolishness, they traded/are trading eternal life in Christ with eternal torment with Satan just to satisfy their momentary desires. Let us hold on to the examples that Jesus Christ showed us in His earthly ministry. Always compare what you hear to God's Word. Reject everything that does not align with God's Truth. Never, ever regard anything above God in your life! Live to serve and not to be served. Strive for forgiveness and peace but bold and steadfast in what God says is true. Never live by fear knowing that God is able and is always on our side. Believe that what seem to be impossible to us are all possible in God through Jesus Christ.
I urge you brethren to never ever lose hope especially in our battle against the demonic entities that seek to steal the leadership of this country from God's chosen leader---President Donald Trump. The prophets have spoken clearly and no weapon of the enemy can thwart the plan of God in this nation for His people. Just like when the Israelites thought they had no way out from the hands of the Egyptians who were bent on killing them, God came in His perfect, mighty and supernatural way by parting the Red Sea to rescue His people and accomplish His plan. Remember this: When the road is engulfed with utter darkness, God's light shines the brightest! And everyone whose faith is in Jesus Christ alone (Born-again, John 3:3) are God's light to this world. Oh I tell you with excitement, God's justice is here and everyone who lives in darkness and rebellion will be exposed. Rejoice people of God, rejoice!
For this Card, I used stamps from four sets of Stampendous Stamps that I had for several years now. I barely used them and so glad to
highlight these beautiful images on this project. The sentiments are from Momenta Clear stamps. I stamped them using Memento Inks. Since the theme of our Challenge is Vintage, I decided that there's nothing more vintage than the true meaning and reason for this season---the birth of Jesus Christ!
This Card is entered into the following Challenges:
This is it for now, guys. Make sure to join us at our neighborhood---613 Avenue Create---for an Anything Goes Challenge with optional theme, "Vintage." If you want to be challenged more, take on our Optional Twist. But there's really no reason for you to miss it. Can't wait to see what you create. The Word of God is not just an ordinary book. Read it and you will find wisdom that even the geniuses of the world will never understand.
