Website looks great. I'm glad you took the leap to put your story out there.
Tthanks my bro, lets just hope and believe that every precious person that visits will stay awhile and really think about the help and strength God wants to empower them with. If honest with 'ourselves' no matter what troubles or blessings this day and life brings, God is Stronger and is for them and not against them. Take good care n Thanks John!
WHY,do so many of us try to 'FORCE' ourselves into being something or someone we are not 'made' or meant to be?
Since God is our True Father and Maker, and He is ONLY 'good' with no 'evil' in Him. He will forever be 'only' perfect in wisdom, beauty, and knowledge. Perhaps most importantly He is 'LOVE' Itself. Also, since He has the perfect plan for our life,and is the beginner and ender of this whole wide 'world,' Why do we fear and fret about so many 'things.'
God 'uniquely' made you. Jesus has never made any 'junk.' The Lord of Heaven and earth has a complete and wonderful plan for our lives. He is 'the' wise and master builder. WHY, then do we resist Him?
Why do we so easily find fault with ourselves and others. And why do we try to be something or someone He never intended for us to be?
Imagine if you would please for a moment with me. . . A football trying to become the 'star' football player, Perhaps a flower trying to become it's own gardener. Or a piece of a puzzle trying to force itself into a place it was not 'made' to be!
For real, Jesus is the composer, conductor, lead musician, and the time keeper of 'the symphony' that our heart and soul sings out! Amazingly, He is the rest we enjoy and the very seat we sit in at the 'concert hall' called LIFE!
He is truly the beginner and ender of all that is called faith, belief, trust, and purity. His hospitality and care are the 'tender mercies' that a compassionate stranger will extend to someone in need.
The Great and Mighty Strong One is the 'substance' of all our 'true' nourishment, provision, fortitude, serenity and courage! He is the Eternal Bread of Life. Only found in Gods hands and heart are the pleasures and the wealth of this ages 'Garden of Delight!'
WHY, Oh Why then, do we not seek out his 'Lion like Strength?' He has and is Divine Truth and Power. Why are we not reading about Him, meditating always on Him? Contemplating on 'His Words,' thoughts and ideas He has for us? Why don't we search out His design and plans for our lives?
May we ask ourselves a very important question then? If your life could be likened to a tool in a mechanics hand, would you reach your full potential and purpose with out being held in The Master Mechanics Hands?
Then I think another good Jesus question for you and me to ask ourselves is, 'TODAY,' what are both of us looking for? And for whom should any of us be waiting for?
Yes, the nail scared hands of the Golden Lion is reaching out for ALL of us. His Voice is calling out your Name! He has ALL the help you will forever need. Will you answer His Call?
Today, The Bold One is calling, yes Jesus is His name.
The King of all the Lions and the greatest of them All!
Can you hear His Majestic Voice?
His pure and golden river is flowing, and
His breath and power are Strong.
Eternity is in His hands and He offers this to all.
His Roaring is forever and He loves the great and small,
His Majesty will sustain you, just listen for His Call.
GET YOUR LION ON !!! by author Eric Turk
Have anyone of you had to wrestle with the Lion of darkness named "Fear," at all lately? Don't feel down on yourself and 'weak' my bro/sister! I have had to conquer this 'lion' for much of my life. Truly, just as many 'other' tough problems and various stresses are attacking our lives and families, the problems and attacks that the dreaded emotion called 'FEAR' cause, are just as big, strong, real,and hard to deal with as 'any' other of todays pressures! Yea, you may not see it, hear it, smell it, but FEAR is TRULY as real as any actual object, thing, or any other kind of 'emotion' there really is in 'this life.' I personally believe that biblically and truly this emotion called fear is sometimes, or more than we realize or know, is actually a 'spirit' sent to bring 'torment' into our heart and soul! That is right! Stride with me a awhile and we will crush it together!
The Strength of the mighty Lion, Jesus, is now Roaring your way.
So this moment, If you dare to come closer and not give up on your pursuit of 'Seeking the Lion,' I will disclose to you what the 'Golden Lion Jesus' says in His Word about Defeating, Crushing, and Annihilating this "TORMENTING" and Paralyzing emotion!. Are you ready? Jesus will now begin to Roar. . .
1. Most importantly you need to TRUST GOD!- at ALL times!!! Fear is the enemy, adversary, and opposite of FAITH-Faith and Trust are very similar.
1(A) FAITH is really a Person! Guess who that person is? King Jesus. He is the beginner and the author of EVERY persons Faith or TRUST! (Hebrews 11:1, 12:2)
Truly, being saved, Born Again, becoming a Christian, they all start by having Faith, Belief, Trust in Jesus Christ. Jesus is the direct OPPOSITE of ALL FEAR! He is Peace and the opposite of anxiety and fearfulness. He is the Prince of Peace Himself. While on the other hand,Satan,(the Dark Lion), is the 'god of Fear.' Gods Word says that He is the Prince of Darkness and he brings the 'spirit of fear' and torment.
2. We ALL experience some form of Fear,. But, what do we do when we are afraid? King David said, "When I am afraid, I will TRUST in YOU!!" That is God Almighty, or Jesus (Psalm 56:3,4,11) Therefore- He felt fear! But He TRUSTED that God would take care of that emotion, problem, situation, feeling, demon, Devil, or the person or persons that were making him afraid at the time. That is very Roar fully Coool!
2(A) That means that David had a 'relationship with Jesus.' How can you really or truly trust someone you do not know? Therefore God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit was His friend, Lord, or God! By reading more of your bible guys, like 1,2 Samuel and the book of Psalms, you will see he was a Child of God! In todays terms, he had asked Jesus into his heart! Jesus was King David's power, strength, God, and his very 'own Lion.' Just take a quick glance at 2 Samuel 22:1-4, or for a bigger view, stare down and gnaw on that whole chapter! It is all about David's trust in Jesus as a person or friend. He 'denned' with Him.
3. Now, if or when you decide to make Jesus your 'TRUST,' and He becomes your Lord, you have the privilege to develop your trust and relationship . . . 'DAILY!'
Time with Jesus GROWS, . . .FEAR than begins to GO. . .! Jesus gets bigger in you, fear then gets smaller in you! Yes, who you spend your time with is who you will become more like, and what consume or eat is what you become, simple! Question time. So why do we chow down on 'HORROR movies? Why, Instead of listening to BAD news all of the time, why don't we seek out some GOOD news more often? Try a tasty Snack or Devour some of Gods tasty Word, He is calorie free, has now bad chemicals, He has no awful side effects, and He empowers us with energy and power for today and for "Eternity!" Now, hopefully you have read my chapter from my soon to be released book, The Voice of the Lion, named '2 swords 2 shut 'evil' doors.' (which is available on this home page for free down load and viewing), If you have chowed down on it, than you will understand some of this next part of this teaching to shut fear down and defeat it. Truly in this world of evil lions, we have to fight 'spiritual forces' with 'spiritual' weapons! FEAR is many times a 'spirit' sent from Satan to oppose us or hinder our life, joy, or sharing with people the truth about Jesus. You cannot see fear, but it is real. It boldly launches and lunges at us. It is really a spiritual attack. Think about it some, when you are at peace you do not feel any danger or trouble touching your mind, right? It is not an absence of something you can see, hear, or touch, truth? Fear can be something physical and in your sense realm at times, but NOT always. We cannot see usually into the 'spirit realm.' But that is where faith and fear operate, trust me or at least read your bibles. That is why Jesus told us not to fear 365 ti

1.RESPECT,What is it Really? & MERCY-Truths about them both!!
I hear many people saying that they are 'not respected.' Or this person is going to get what they deserve! Or, they had it coming to them! Have you ever heard this? I bet you have.
Yes, There will be much to discuss about this mindset in this and perhaps more 'wrap' sessions on this comment page. But first off, I would like to apologize to anyone who has viewed this web page sight in the last few weeks looking for some new inputs, teachings, or new news on my book release. Truly, being a Christian means you can get 'busy' at times helping other people, and also means some times you cannot do everything 'you want to do.' Also, 'Life Happens.' This has been my case with my writing lately. My hearts desire is to write as much as possible.
So, lets 'Wrap a little on the lions meal called RESPECT
O.K, lets begin with a simple question about the two small little words that everyone seems to have a 'Different opinion' about. Respect then the Word called Mercy.
Where I live I hear many people talking about 'Respect.' I hear very little about the word 'Mercy.' What exactly is 'respect' and what exactly is 'mercy' then? Truly I know only a little bit about both of those words. But with the strength of a 'The Lion' we will search out those two words and just how they effect your very life as the time we are living in Now and 'Today.'
We ALL do things 'wrong' at times, do we not? . . . . Yea, Have you ever hurt someone 'unintentionally,??' How about a friend, parent, some loved one, or maybe even a stranger? Have you ever wanted to 'take it back,' whatever you did that was wrong and perhaps have a second chance at what went down? Have you ever had a 'bad day' and because your 'buttons' were manipulated and 'pushed,' the next thing you know you said or did something to someone that you regretted later? TRUTH, Yes, All of the above has happened to me and most probably you too! Also true, is that this can happen many times in one day, many times yesterday, and may also happen a lot tomorrow too. So then, what is the best thing to do when you have done something wrong to someone else? I would suggest the word called 'Reconciliation.' That of course is a personal 'Choice.' Some of us do not try to make the problem or the offense we have caused right, but hopefully you will do the 'right' thing and try to reconcile the situation. Don't think it is world ending, or un fixable, the truth is that every one of us eventually say something that someone takes the wrong way and considers 'wrong.' As long as we are alive and in this body and on planet earth 'offenses, misunderstandings, hurtful words and much more 'evil circumstances' involving myself, yourself, and other people are going to happen! This can be considered and fall into the very 'relative word' called 'Dis Respect.' I would like to challenge any reader to comment on their own 'take' on what this word means to them. . . . That is of course the word and topic of 'Respect and Dis respect'
Imagine a world where there was no attempts to correct a wrong or 'reconcile' the differences and misunderstandings that take place in our lives, homes, workplaces, and communities??
Also that brings me up to another word and food for thought about the number 2 word I have mentioned in our heading statement for us to think, learn, or contemplate some about, and that is the WORD, , . . Mercy! That is one of the mightiest Lion like Words there are, is and forever will be! So precious reader and friend, so then, just what do you think Respect and Mercy are? Really??? I would love some feedback out of the "Den of Your Heart."
I have to put my Pen down for a bit but I hope to back in a few days or this week to check and see if any of you will be bold enough to Speak. Hopefully I can go on farther with this teaching, Maybe the question number 2. would be ?? How would YOU like to be treated in this Darkened and fallen World of selfishness and /Wrong doing??
2 A. Or, How do you want God to treat you? What do you think His Mercy means, and what do you think Respecting your Creator and Maker also means? That is some food to snack on for sure. Jesus blessings my friends, For His Glory and Mercy, Eric Roarrinngg OUT!!
