This post is in response to my new friend A.N. who commented on my blog today. I chose to respond as a blog and you will understand why later.

Thank you A.N. to your inquiry as to why I believe Jesus is my God. First of all I believe Jesus is the only son of the living God. The Holy Bible declares He has been with God from the beginning and He was the Word that we read. The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, among humanity, by being born of a virgin.

Next A.N., you and I DO agree on much of the information you presented to me. Let me explain a misconception I think you may have of Christians. We who call ourselves Christians do not always agree with each other on our beliefs but one thing that we DO all agree on is that Jesus is the Son of God.

I have studied the information about Constantine and the Greek mythology that you mentioned. You wrote about the name Jesus, Zeus, and Ieasus, but you failed to mention that the son of the living God's Hebrew name is Yeshuah. When we as Christians call upon the name of Jesus, we are calling upon God's only son that was born to a Jewish virgin and his name is Yeshuah. We use Jesus as the English name for Yeshuah. We are not calling upon a Greek god nor do we picture a Greek god when we pray. We picture the Hebrew man Yeshuah.

By studying the Holy Bible, most Christians realize that Jesus (Yeshuah) was not born on December 25th, but that is the day we have set aside to worship the birth of God's only son. From things I have studied, he was probably conceived around that day and born around the Feast of Tabernacles in the fall. Regardless, we Christians realize we are not worshipping someone born to a Greek Goddess.

We know that the word 'Trinity' is not mentioned in the Bible. When God created us, He created us a body, a soul, and a spirit. One person with three (three comes from the word that trinity comes from) different attributes just as He is. He is the Father, the Son, and the Holy spirit. Yes, you and I agree, He is One. Just as I am one yet to those around me I am a wife, a mother, a daughter.

You wrote about Paul, but have you read about the Son of God appearing to him causing his conversion? If not, please read.
You must be seeking the truth A.N. because you know much about history and you mentioned different scriptures in the Holy Book that I read. I would like to challenge you to something as a friend. Would you pray this prayer: True and Living God, would you reveal yourself to me and show me the true way.

If you will pray this, I promise there will be many more praying along with you and let me know what is revealed to you my friend. Peace!!!!!!

My husband went on a mountain lion hunt a few years ago and this is what they got. It reminds me of the story of David in 1 Samuel when he wanted to go after Goliath. David said, "The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine." And Saul said to David, "Go, and the Lord be with you!"

I feel like I'm going after a lion and a bear this time of year trying to get everything in order for taxes to be filed.

Life is full of battles to fight and like David, we have to be courageous and GO. And the Lord is always with us.... not to deliver us from the battle......but to deliver what we are fighting against into OUR hands.

I pray each of you GO in the name of the Lord to your battles and that you prevail over them just as David did.

And in a few days, I'll be holding up Goliath's head once again when our taxes are finished.

We are being warned here in Oklahoma about the cold weather that will be coming in tonight so I decided to fix our cat 'Billie' a place to sleep in the garage. She is at least 15 years old and has been a good barn cat all these years. She has caught many mice and rats out there in that barn and many times would bring her trophies up here to the house to show off. Since she is getting old we decided to get a kitten for her to train but she doesn't like that cat so she stays up here at the house on the porch. As I was fixing her a warm place in the garage for the rest of the winter she stood there purring as I was fixing it and as soon as I finished she jumped in and layed down.

I have quite a story to tell about Billie. She came from a litter of kittens that were born out in our barn during the winter. My daughter, being the animal lover that she is, went out to the barn one evening to check on the kittens. They were born on top of the hay that was stacked in the barn several feet up. One kitten had fallen down off the hay and had frozen. Amanda brought the kitten to the house and wrapped it in a blanket and sat by the fireplace rubbing it and praying for it.

Now this cat was dead and it was frozen. It's tongue was hanging out and stuff was running out its nose. She kept rubbing it and praying for it and she would use an eye dropper and try to squirt warm milk in its mouth. I heard my husband say "Sugar, that kitten is dead." But she kept on trying to nurse it back. After an hour of this we hear this sound in the living room that sounded like a billie goat. "Maaaa" It was that little kitten and before the night was over that little kitten was running around the house playing but it's meow sounded like a little goat. And that's how Billie got her name.
