Negative Repentance

                                              Cast Your Cares © 2014 Debbie Turner Chaver s Repentance is normally a cleansing act of contrition. There is a desire to repair that which is broken. Yet, negative repentance is "As a dog returneth to its vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly." This is in reference to returning repeatedly back to a place of hurt. An example would be an offense administered by another to you. The vomit being the return, or the oral dissection of the wrong, or the thinking and mulling over of the wrong. Every time we turn to it, we are repenting of our deliverance from it. This negative repentance is a spirit of error and perverseness that seeks to cloud our judgement and steal our joy. Do not cast aside, the peace and freedom which God has granted in and through Christ Jesus to you. It is disobedient to dwell on that which is not pure, lovely, and of good report. We are to think on those things,the pure, the lovely. We are soldiers

Walk in the Light

  Feed My Lambs, Feed My Sheep © 2005 Debbie Turner Chavers Close-up of Feed My Lambs, Feed My Sheep © 2005 Debbie Turner Chavers Walk in the light you have received .  A single sentence flashed in my understanding as we took communion this morning. A brief flash of light reflected across my face as the Communion container was being opened and my thoughts went to 1John 1:5-7. Walking in the light you have received, consider with me, 1John 1:1-10. As you read these scriptures, think about the Body and Blood of Christ Jesus. Our taking of communion, and that through this gift, that we have been given the ability to look upon and handle, the Word of life. Christ death and resurrection are revealed and manifested in us as we obey and remember what He has done. That through His sacrifice on the Cross, Christ has given you and I, a clear path to the Father. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. (John14:6) Communion, to dwell upon what He has accomplished t

Seek God

Reborn- Birthed in the Womb of His Word Painting © 2016 Debbie Turner Chavers Water-Man Series Symptom: Willful blindness and laziness Cure: Matthew 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. A man is without integrity who will not seek God. For he has lied to himself first and everyone else when he states he is born again. There is a willful fraud of being. A lazy cocooning of self that was changed at new birth, yet refuses to break free. To crawl out of former bondage to fly on wings of obedience. Who will define your truth for you? Will you tenure the precepts and intentions of mere man to determine YOUR life course? Will you give that which is holy unto dogs? No, your heart, mind, and body must belong only to the LORD who redeemed you. You have been redeemed for eternity and a life wor
