Being perfect?

Quoting the scriptures is not hard to do, but LIVING the scriptures is another story. 

Some people can say who they are in Christ, even state they are as Christ is. Just by looking at Jesus Christ as our example is easy to do. But doing what Christ did should become visible in the lives of those who claim the above. If not... it are words spoken or written in vain.
When one can overcome calamities through the power of the Holy Spirit and do the things Jesus did, words do not need to be used because ACTIONS will speak loudly for themselves.

Jesus says: "Not they that say LORD, LORD, but they who do the will of my Father..."
It is sad to learn that such people exist and present such boasting words.

Some may think they do not have to ask forgiveness anymore either, because they have been forgiven once already, as they claim.
Certainly, we who have asked forgiveness for past trespasses will be forgiven... but what about the days after? We should be cleansed daily. Are such not taking a bath anymore, because they were washed at one time already? What a nonsense.  Are they walking in PERFECTION ever after? We know better. Such people are fooling themselves.

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:  1 John 2:2
We are not sinners anymore after conversion, since we have become children of God. But we still may walk in disobedience from time to time, or trip over sin, wrong thoughts, getting angry etc. We have the battle between the spirit and the flesh, and fail at times. Therefore we need to be cleansed by the Blood of the Lord as long as we are here on this doomed globe and have not received a glorified body.

But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the Blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:7-9
I think very HIGH of Christ who lives within me, but not too high of myself since without Christ I am nothing. Human thoughts may start to wander and thinking about wrong or sinful ideas. Am I correct? Or are you one of those who walk “perfect” all the time?  Just think...

Christ should be glorified... not man, no matter how much good one may do.
Go by the word of God and allow Him to guide you in all your ways. He is the purpose for living, without Him we will be "losers". We are created for His pleasure, according to His word. So rejoice and let the world go by. AMEN!!

For His Glory,
Minister Dr. Trudy Veerman

Proclaim His Word


I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust. 
(here come the promises) Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. Psalm 91:2-6

REALLY we have NOTHING TO FEAR as we trust His word.

O... GLORY to GOD in the Highest!

Dear people... Go and Get it. Have faith and touch the hemn of His garment and He WILL make you whole.

God is the God of the "NOW", not only of the days of the Bible. 
Isn't He the same, yesterday, today and forever??? HE SURE IS!!

Be blessed as you meditate upon His Word. 

In the service of the King.

Blessed are those...

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance. The LORD looketh from heaven; He beholdeth all the sons of men.
From the place of His habitation He looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. Psalm 33:12-14

Show me the "nation" which has the God of Abraham as their God! There is none... No wonder this earth is in so much turmoil, pain, war, death, crime, disasters and about to sink in a deep "hole".
O Lord, raise up Your children to follow You in sincerity and dedication, I pray.

What about the people of God who turn to this world for their "god", for their "entertainment" or to satisfy their flesh?
See what happened in  Exodus 32... Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered together to Aaron, and said to him, "Come, make us gods that shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him."

Verse 7... And the LORD said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:  Verse 35...  "And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made."
Other times God opened the earth and some of His people who became rebellious were swallowed up. See  Numbers 16:32 and Chapter 26:10

What I am referring to is the seriousness of followers of God who become rebellious and who go astray. Through Christ we have found a rescue from the judgement of God, but we must walk in His ways. Those who love Christ will not put God to the test, because they desire to obey His voice through the Holy Spirit.

Do NOT think that God does not see or know what you are doing and in what you are involved with. He is a righteous God and He does not hold His hand over His eyes concerning the doings of His children, because we know what to do, not to do and what is expected from us. His Word reveals to all human flesh how to live and how to seek Him in sincerity. His help in our daily walk is available for the asking.

His Word also states that God is merciful and gracious, but this does not mean that we should speculate on this, nor try to abuse the attributes of our Father. We can walk in victory and joy, through the Holy Spirit.

His people are those who follow Him and to such Jesus says: "And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand." John 10:28

Just in case you may think that one becomes a child of God without effort on his/her part or being ignorant by continuing in sin, let me show you how it works.

Matthew 7:7 "Ask, and it will be given unto you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you." If this scripture is not adhered to, then nothing will change. The words Jesus spoke are not meant to be idle, but expect reply and response.
God’s word teaches that Salvation and Forgiveness of sin does not come automatically.
John 3: 18,19 He that BELIEVETH on Him is not condemned: but he that BELIEVETH NOT is condemned already, because he hath NOT believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Sure we can bring the message of reconciliation but the "hearer" needs to respond. This can be compared to the marriage vows: each party has to declare "I do". It is a 2 way street. Each one has a free will to reject or to accept. If one of the couple to be married, does not respond with the "I do", the marriage vows are void. Both have to agree to make it a marriage.
And so it is with the Word of God... one rejects or accepts, nothing in between will do.

Man is not a puppet, but has to take responsibility for his/her actions according to God's word. And for this Jesus Christ did come to present freedom to all who COME to Him and OPEN the door of their heart when He knocks.  This requires ACTION on the part of the “hearer”.
Abiding in God's word will always reflect TRUTH. AMEN!  

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. John 10:27  

Watch you therefore not to be caught unexpectedly when He appears.

Jesus Gives Hope

Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

Never give up! When you think ALL hope is gone there is still HOPE! ALL  things  may fail, but Jesus never fails. If life has been beating on you and you're nearly down and out... WAIT... LISTEN...  He is calling your name! You've been staring at your own limitations, disabilities, qualifications, failures, borders, obstructions, what have you. 
 Look up into His wonderful face, grab His Holy Hand, reach the "IMPOSSIBLE" with the Lord. Remember, He can do a LOT more than you. T
Allow Him to carry you through life and you will be "eternally" thankful.

He is always one step ahead, one page further,
a breath closer, a touch away, always in sight, within reach. 
He'll hear your cries, see your tears, feel your hurts,
know your fears, heal your wounds, answer your prayers,
lift you up and carry you over hills and through valleys.
by Dr. Trudy Veerman

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.  John 14:27

These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.  John 16:33 

Servant of the Lord,
Minister Dr. Trudy Veerman                                   

hrow yourself into His "lifeline".

Caring Love


Beyond life's trials and its snares
There is a love so rooted deep
 May we know the love that cares
That gives us comfort when we weep

The love of God is greater far
and wider than the heavens stretch
It goes beyond the highest star
No human love will ever match

There is no other power so strong
Which deeply touches the human soul
It will convict when we go wrong
but also heals and makes us whole

This Godly power poured in our heart
Will guide our steps to reach about
If we're surrendered from the start
His love in us shall not burn out

And when through life our love is tried
On His precious Word we'll stand
For His Love in us needs to abide
So we will not crumble, neither bend

Then we'll have no more hurting pride
For His love does absorb every shock
With such unmovable love inside
We'll be able to feed His flock

So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou Me more than these? He saith unto Him, Yea, Lord; Thou knowest that I love Thee. He saith unto him, Feed My lambs. John 21:15

Walk after God's will

Watch with whom you chum around, who your "friends" and "companions" are. Dirt will easily cling onto your "white" garment by hanging around with the wrong crowd. And before you know it you have become one of them, and your garment has changed to a dirty grayish color. Have a closer look to see who they are and ask yourself if God will be pleased with your walk.

Stay away from worldly people and anything which leads to worldly influence, as through books, movies, magazines, hang-outs . Keep your "house" clean and incorrupt, so not to miss the Crown. The only exception is to mingle with people for the Gospel sake, to present them with the Love of Christ. Influencing them for Christ is a complete different and worthwhile thing than going along with their lifestyle and worldliness.

Jesus warns for this, saying: "Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees". Luke 12:1.  (The yeast which permeates the whole loaf).

 The Apostle Paul writes:
*Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: 
*I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: 
*But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 1 Corinthians 5:verses 7, 9, 11.                                                                          

This does not mean that you have to isolate yourself. NOT at all! Reaching out to those in the world to bring change into their life through Christ is much different than befriending them for other reasons.                                    
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 
But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. Psalm 1-3

Walk holy and well pleasing before the face of the Lord, and you will be protected and blessed.

Be Holy, for God is Holy!

Being blessed!

Just think how blessed you are to know the Lord and being able to walk with Him in good and bad times. To tell Him what is on your heart and how you love Him. Jesus will listen to all you have to say and then He will begin to speak to you, through His word, in your heart, a vision, a dream or a song which pops up in your mind.


There is never a disappointment with the Lord, if we expect the answer from Him alone. Let this be for your encouragement. 

Look up into His Holy face and you will see the radiance of everlasting glory in His eyes; the heavenly glow of Godly Love; the unspeakable Beauty of His appearance. He is the Conqueror, the Overcomer, the Restorer, the Healer, the Master of All, the Son of God, the Alpha and Omega, the soon coming King, and He is much more. 

Beloved, I am the PROOF of His faithfulness. The Father has carried me through so much I can't describe it, but it are multitudes of incidents. I've been "squeezed" to the limit but was able to keep the faith in my God. I have felt like Jonah in the guts of the great fish, but I have been rescued. I cannot do anything better than to declare His awesomeness. 

It is by FAITH and through FAITH in Him that He operates. Hang in there, push ahead, hold on, look up high, stand firm, don't give up... then He WILL see you through!

I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. I have set the LORD always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. Psalm 16:7-9.

Thank You, Jesus!
