Are Heaven and Hell Real?

I just watched an amazing testimony.  I have heard similar testimonies of people dying going to hell going to heaven and then going to earth,  but this particular testimony is extremely detailed.

A woman gets on the bus and the driver doesn’t close the back door. In a hurry to catch the light he makes a sharp left turn, flinging her out of the bus.  She dies immediately because of severe head injuries.

In the video 👈 she goes on to describe her  intricately vivid, horrifying and beautiful experience as she leaves her body.

Her testimony makes me think about my life on earth. It makes me feel the urgency to tell everybody about Jesus right now!! It makes me wonder if in my lifetime have I told enough people about my Lord, or have I been too timid ; too fearful of what people might think if I start preaching and start evangelizing to everyone I  come in contact with?

I’m feeling convicted that if I care more about the world and what it says about me, then the answer would be no I should not share. But if I care more about eternal consequences and kingdom moments which will impact lives for eternity, then the answer would be yes, I should share the gospel with everyone I come in contact with.

I have felt the Holy Spirit tugging on my heart within the last week, because He has been inviting me to go to a new level with Him. I am convicted I need to walk in the destiny that God has called me to. And if I live a life of mediocrity, then my impact here on earth would have been mediocre at best.

Father, I pray today that you forgive me for missing those kingdom opportunities to share who you are.  Forgive me Lord for passing up opportunities to walk in my destiny as your daughter; your heir.

We live in a lost world and it needs your love, your perfect love. Holy Spirit, guide me toward those whom I must share your truth.

Order my steps Lord as you go before me, preparing hearts to receive your gift of eternal life so they can live in peace with you for eternity.

I step out in faith today. Please open my ears so I can hear your voice loud and clear as you guide my every step.

I know that heaven and hell are real, but those who do not know you as their Lord and Savior do NOT know that heaven and hell are real!

I pray that you shine inside me that I may be used to spread your sweet fragrance wherever I go. I pray that I decrease as you increase.

Declaration Day 14

I declare that God is bringing about new seasons of growth. I will not get stagnant and hold on to the old. I will be open to change knowing that God has something better in front of me. New doors of opportunity, new relationships, and new levels of favor are in my future. This is my declaration.

This was Declaration Day 13. It’s amazing how the Lord shows he is listening to us!

We are seeing financial growth in our own community. After so much struggle, our American economy is on the rise.

In years past, my husband and I have seemed to catch the housing market at the wrong time. We always bought when the market was high and sold when the market was low, not the way things are supposed to go if you want to come out on the better side of the deal.

As many of you know, we have been through complete financial devastation and have had to rebuild our financial lives through a lot of prayer.

God is faithful and gave us everything back, plus more. Now, as I sit on my balcony sipping my coffee before I go to work, I am watching the signs of blessing before my eyes.

This picture is of the property next to us that sat vacant for years, and now the owners have decided to build on it because the housing market has skyrocketed. Houses and properties are selling like hot cakes! Probably a first for about twenty years.

Bless the Lord!! Since we bought our home in 2015, It has increased in value by 33.333% That’s 1/3rd more than what we paid in just three years! What a difference from our previous experiences with real estate!

The property next door

Now for today’s declaration of faith, Day 14.

“I declare that I will use my words to bless people. I will speak favor and victory over my family, friends, and love ones. I will help call out there seeds of greatness by telling them “I’m proud of you, I love you, you are amazing, you are talented, you are beautiful, you will do great things in life.” This is my declaration.

Thank you Lord for your faithfulness! You are perfect in all of your ways. We trust you for your provisions of all we hope for and hope to become. May your kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven! Amen.

This is from Psalm 119, The Passion Translation

Here’s an article about our rising economy, we thank God for our leaders, and commit to continued prayer for them.

Declaration Day 12

I declare I am special and extraordinary. I am not average! I have been custom made. I am one of a kind. Of all things God has created what he is the most proud of is me. I am his masterpiece, his most prized possession. I will keep my head held high, knowing I am a child of the most high God, made in his very image. This is my declaration.

Declaration Day 11

Thank you Lord, that you have set me on a hill with favor, as you have restored the things the locusts have eaten.

Thank you for speaking secrets from heaven to me. As I read your word, your secrets of blessings, physical vitality, emotional strength and spiritual wholeness are revealed.

Thank you that I will look back on today as a day of struggle compared to what you are about to bring me.

Your increase and your favor are on me now, and from this day forward you will see it all through, because I seek your kingdom first.

“You have brought me out into a broad place and you have delivered me because you delighted in me. ”

Psalm 18:19

Declaration Day 10

Well, it’s been a few days since my last post, but I have been declaring these declarations over my life and God has opened my eyes to see how He moves. He is amazing!

This picture is of my grand baby. It’s a little symbolic don’t you think?

In the Bible, Jesus is referred to as the rock and the river of life, so this picture speaks volumes to me.

Today is day ten’s declaration. I’ve been lingering on this one for several days because it’s the one that He is highlighting for me, as I see His faithfulness and the evidence that He is working behind the scenes. He wants to bless us when we draw near to Him.

As a result of saying this one out loud, I’ve received several of what I like to call “snap shot visions” of the fulfillment of this declaration for my life!

Plus, He has brought so much favor to me this week!

Read this out loud, it’s powerful.

“I declare that God will accelerate His plan for my life as I put my trust in Him. I will accomplish my dreams faster than I thought possible. It will not take years to overcome an obstacle, become healthier, to pay off debt, or to meet the right person God wants to use to accomplish these victories. God is doing things faster than before, He will give me victory sooner than I think. He has blessings that will thrust me years ahead. This is my declaration.”

“Indeed before the day was, I am He;

And there is no one who can deliver out of My hand;

I work, and who

will reverse it?”

Is 43:13

Declaration Day 9

I declare unexpected blessings are coming my way. I will move forward from barely making it to having more than enough. God will open up supernatural doors for me. He will speak to the right people about me. I will see Ephesians 3:20 exceedingly, abundantly above and beyond favor increase in my life. This is my declaration.

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

Ephesians 3:20-21

Blue Letter Bible

Declaration Day 8

I declare God’s dream for my life is coming to pass. It will not be stopped by people, disappointments, or adversities. God has solutions to every problem I will ever face already lined up. The right people and the right breaks are in my future. I will fulfill my destiny. This is my declaration.

Jeremiah 29:11

I know the thoughts I have toward you, says the Lord, not to harm you but to prosper you and give you a hope and a future.

Declaration Day 7

I declare that God has a great plan for my life. He is directing my steps. And even though I may not always understand now, I know my situation is not a surprise to God. He will work out every detail to my advantage. In his perfect timing, everything will turn out right. This is my declaration.

Be anxious for nothing but in all things with prayer and supplication make your requests be made known to God and the peace that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6 -7

Declaration Day 6

I declare a legacy of faith over my life. I declare that I will store up blessings for future generations. My life is marked by excellence and integrity. Because I am making right choices and taking steps of faith, others will want to follow me. God’s abundance is surrounding my life today. This is my declaration.

“You sent the reviving rain upon the weary land, showers of blessing to refresh it. So there your people settled. And in your kindness you provided the poor with abundance. The Lord declares the word of the Gospel with power and the warring women of Zion deliver his message. The conquering legions have themselves been conquered and look at them flee! Now Zions women are left to gather the spoils. ” Psalm 68:9-12

Declaration Day 5

I declare, I am grateful for who God is in my life and for what he has done. I will not take for granted the people, the opportunities, and the favor that he has blessed me with. I will look at what is right and not at what is wrong. I will thank him for what I have and not complain about what I don’t have. I will see each day as a gift from God. My heart will overflow with praise and gratitude for all his goodness. This is my declaration.

“But thanks be to God who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and who makes known through us the fragrance that consists of the knowledge of him in every place. ” 2 Corinthians 2:14

Thank you Elohim Adonai !
