Psalm27:1
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?







"DEDICATION & TESTIMONY!"


My website is dedicated to the "truth" of God's word, the furtherance of the gospel of salvation and to those of us who are striving to live Jesus Christ's way, which he alone gives us the strength to do and not to live as the world lives, man's way. It is also dedicated to my late and beautiful grandmother whom we lovingly called Nana and to my late and beautiful Aunt Carrie, who both trained us up in the way we should go and by the mercy and grace of God when we grew older, we did not depart from it. They were sisters, aunt Carrie was my great aunt. These two wonderful ladies were instrumental in sending us to sunday school, church and also bible school in the summer. They brought us up at the time of our lives when our mom wasn't there for us. They brought us up in the fear, nurture and admonition of the Lord. I was baptized, called sprinkling, in church when I was about seven or eight although I know I was not saved at that time. We grew up in a methodist church and I used to say I was a methodist, but now I know that I am a true believer, a saint, saved, Christian, elect, chosen, predestinated, Israel of God, but I no longer call myself a methodist.

When we went back home to live with our mom and as I began to grow up, I began to grow away from the church and the Lord. Now I loved my mom very much, please don't misunderstand me. She just did not teach us about the Lord Jesus Christ, nor did she send us to sunday school or church and did not teach us anything about God. That is not a judgment of my mother, it is the truth. I hope that she is now in heaven with the Lord. She may have come to know Jesus when she became very ill and was dying. The pastor of my grandmother's church came to visit her on her deathbed and I believe Christ may have saved her before she left this world. I pray that this is the case. I leave that in the hands of almighty God, because I know that he does everything perfectly. When I went back home to live with my mother, I started living in the world and for the world. I went through a lot of awful things, pain, suffering and heartache in my life, which I am not going to go into but it was not a good time in my life at all. I know God was working in my life for my salvation even then. After a while I got involved in some false gospels. I was brought up in the church and I was still seeking God, but I was looking in all the wrong religions. Satan was really roaring seeking whom he could devour and he tried very hard to devour me. He was trying to get me into false gospels. I got involved with the Jehovah's Witnesses for a time, but I decided that it was not what I was looking for. Actually I know now that it was God the Holy Spirit, leading me away from those false religions, false gospels and lying signs and wonders and leading me into truth, the truth of the bible.

Once an older lady who was a Catholic started coming to my house. She just knocked on my door one day and started talking to me about her religion. That was unusual in itself because I didn't know that Catholics did this. She gave me some rosary beads and told me to say the hail mary prayer and showed me how to use them as I prayed. She also wanted me to come to see this apparition of the virgin mary that she said had miraculously appeared to a lady in upstate New York. She had a bus excursion for anyone that wanted to go there. It would cost a certain amount of money to go and I wanted to go very much at that time. I started praying with the rosary beads that she gave me saying the prayer that she taught me. "Hail mary full of grace the Lord is with thee, blessed art thou amongest women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus"
She told me to say it repetively, which I had never done before nor knew anything about the catholic religion, but I did it anyway.

I remember that verse still today years later because I repeated it so much that it stayed in my mind. I was tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine. That's how satan works with a little truth, a lot of untruth, deceit, deception and outright lies. He is transformed into an angel of light, ministers of righteousness to decieve us into believing that he is of God.

2Co 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

I also wanted very much to go and see this so called miracle of the vision of the virgin mary in the sky. I remember that I didn't have enough money to go at that time and also something inside of me kept telling me not to go, so I ended up not going. Which when I look back on now was a very good thing, because it was not of God, it was of satan and I now know that it was God who was keeping me from that abomination. God is not sending visions, dreams, visitations from heaven, etc. any longer, he has sent his word for us to read, believe by the faith OF Christ, and obey.

Joh 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

I also stopped praying with the rosary beads. I didn't feel right about doing it and so I threw them into the trash. When this lady came back to my house, I did not answer my door to her and she finally stopped coming.

Later on in my life I got involved with a church that believed in speaking in tongues and falling backward. I stayed with that church for a while. A girlfriend of mine got me involved in the church because she was a member there. The church leaders tried to get me to speak in tongues by telling me to close my eyes and to repeat Jesus' name over and over again in rapid succession. I never spoke in the so called tongues, although I did hear a lot of other people talking this gibberish kind of language. However one time I did find myself flat on my back and I didn't know how I got there. I remember that I was not hurt by falling backward and I don't remember if someone caught me when I fell back or not. I just came to myself lying flat on my back and someone was kneeling beside me telling me to keep repeating Jesus' name over and over again. They said that I would begin to speak in tongues, but I never did speak in any so called tongues, thank God. Now I know it probably was a supernatural thing or even a man made phenomenon from their minds and I know that it came from satan and not from God. God is not giving direct revelation from heaven any longer through a tongue, vision, dreams or any holy visitations. He has given us his word the holy bible to read, listen to and be obedient to. He says in Rev.22:18-19...

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

2nd Cor 5:7 "For we walk by faith, not by sight"

Finally, I stopped going to that church also. I didn't feel right about the things that the church was doing. Thank you God for protecting me from satan's lies, deciets, false gospels, power, signs and lying wonders.

2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

Later on in my life I did start attending another church in my neighborhood that seemed to be true to the word of God. It was Community United Methodist. My children started going to sunday school and church there. My daughter joined the youth choir and the junior usher board. Both of my children got involved with the church's recreation center, after school tutoring program and summer camp program. I never did join the church, although my children did and both were baptized there. I would attend church periodically, such as when there was an usher service going on or on Easter Sunday or to the Christmas service to hear my children say their poems and perform in the Christmas play. I did not attend church on a regular basis at that time. My children were brought up in the church though. They were brought up hearing the word of God and for that I am very thankful. They were trained up in the way that they should go and I pray that they will not depart from it and that God will use his word, which they have heard and are still hearing today at home, to bring them into the faith of Christ, into the household of God.

Ro 10:17

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

I pray that they are saved, or that God will have chosen to save them. I pray for each and every one of my family members' salvation.

At that time in my life my husband and I were into the world. Doing the things of the world, such as, drinking, smoking, and gambling, which we thought were fun things to do at that time. Most of the time they were really not fun at all, with feeling bad physically, the arguing, the guilt of living that way was there too of course, mentally and our family life wasn't too great. Yet, we think we are having "fun" while we are doing these things. Well I lived like this for a very long period of my life. Eventually it took it's toll on all of us, as a family and on me as an individual. I know that God was working in my life even then. It also took a toll on my health. Further on down the rocky road of my life, I became very ill with asthma and I developed chronic bronchitis and had to be hospitalized. I had asthma as a child but I thought that I had outgrown it. Now it had suddenly come back on me with a vengeance. Well that was a wake up call for me. God was telling me something, and I was ready to listen. It was time for me to stop doing all the awful things that were pulling me down to destruction and taking me on the path that leads to hell and eternal damnation.

Matthew 7: 13

Enter ye in at the strait gate:for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Well I certainly found out that this is so true. There are so many people on that broad, wide road to hell. I am just so thankful that Jesus Christ took me off of that wide road and by his mercy and grace, put me on the narrow road that leads to life everlasting. Thank You Jesus!

I was sick with this illness for months. I had to be on various medications continuously. I would have asthma attacks on a regular basis and sometimes I had to go to the hospital for breathing treatments, although I didn't have to stay for a prolonged period of time again. I couldn't go anywhere because of this illness though and I eventually had to see a lung specialist. It was one of the most physically miserable times of my life. My dear husband was right there taking very good care of me, and showing me that he loved me very much. He had eventually stopped drinking, smoking, and doing all of the things that was not good for him, and has stopped living that awful life over the years. Gradually over a long priod of time, I got well, thank you father God for the doctors that you have given the knowledge to help sickness and disease in us.

I started listening to Family Radio on a regular basis at this time of my life, especially the Open Forum hosted by Harold Camping. My brother Tony started me listening to this particular radio station. It opened my eyes up to the truth of God's word at a critical time in my life. A turning point in my life. God was using Family Radio to bring me to saving grace. The holy Spirit gives me the truth of His word as I read it and continually pray for spiritual discernment, and understanding of it.

I began to read my bible a whole lot now, with a much more clearer and spiritual understanding of it than I ever had before. I began to beseech God for his mercy, to give me true repentance for my sins, for his forgivness, and for my salvation, as well as the salvation of my husband, children and family. Later on down the now, narrow and straight road of my life, by God's maercy, he answered my prayer for my salvation and I became truly saved. I don't know the specific time, date, day or hour of my salvation. Some people say that they do know that, well I don't. The bible does not teach that you will know the specific time of your salvation. That is another man-made doctrine. I just knew one day that I was truly saved and I had an ongoing desire to be obedient to the word of God and a delight in the word of God and I wanted salvation for of all my family members, as well as the salvation of those who were unsaved in the world. I did not go to a church to become saved. God used his word to save me right there in my own home. Praise God.

Ro 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

Ps 40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.

I know it absolutely now. I am a changed person, I am born again, born from above. I am washed clean in the blood of the Lamb. I am dead to sin and to satan and I have been raised with Christ Jesus. I am a child of God. I am in the kingdom of Jesus Christ. I am no longer in the kingdom of satan. I am no longer at war with God, because I am reconciled to God. I have the peace that passeth all understanding. God has done a great work in my heart, my spirit, and in my life. I am a new creature in Christ Jesus. Old things have passed away behold, all things have become new for me. I live to serve Christ and to give his word of truth to a lost world on it's way to hell. Just as I was on my way to hell before I became saved. I love the Lord, becuase he first loved me and I want to be obedient to do His commandments. Even though I know that I don't do it perfectly. I know I am saved by his grace and not by my works. I also know that faith without works is dead. I am a servant of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. I am His authorized ambassador, I am authorized by his word, the bible.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

I have to tell you these things, so that you can understand what a true miracle the gift of salvation really is. I want to let you know what God has done in my life, a great work, and he can do a great work in your life too, if it is his will to do so. Humble yourself and call out to him, beseech him for his mercy. Ask for true repentance of your sins. Ask him for his grace, forgivness and true salvation. Seek him while He may be found, call upon him while He is near. We are not promised tomorrow. Ask Him to give you his faith. We are saved by the faith OF Christ, not by our faith in Christ.

Ps 34:18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Ro 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

Joh 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Joh 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

Please read your bible, for God works through his word to save you. "Faith (of Christ) cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God" Keep praying for your salvation and the salvation of your loved ones as well.

La 3:26

It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.

Eph 2:8

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

2Co 6:2

For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

His strength will sustain you, he tells us to cast all our cares on him, that his grace is sufficient for us and it truly is. He will never leave you nor forsake you. Thank you precious Lord for dying for me, for taking my sins upon yourself so that I won't have to stand before the judgment throne of almighty God and be found guilty for all of my miserable, rotten sins and sentenced to spend an eternity in hell to pay the penalty for them. Thank you for loving me that much Abba Father God. It is more than I can comprehend and as long as I have breath, I will praise you Lord Jesus. Praise ye the Lord. His mercy is everlasting and his truth endureth to all generations. Praise him according to his excellent greatness. Read Psalm 150. Give glory and praise to God because he truly deserves to be praised.

I love the song Amazing Grace because it speaks to my heart of the wretch that I once was and yet God chose to save me. I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see, so I have put the song Amazing Grace on this page. I don't desire the things of the world that I used to any longer. I have an ongoing, continuous desire to be obedient to the will of God. I know I don't live my life perfectly, but I am striving through Christ's strength and in his righteousness to live a life that is glorifying to God. I want to be obedient to the word of God. I know that I am only righteous because of the blood of Christ and it is nothing that I have done or can do of myself to merit salvation. Isa 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags. Faith is the free gift of God, through the grace of God to your salvation, Hallelujah, thank you Jesus.
My sister's and I used to have bible study with our children on sunday mornings over the phone, because we live in different sections of the city. One sister lives outside of the city. We had bible study this way for ten years or more, praise the Lord. May God be glorified, now it is time that we find a home church to join, because I believe that is what God wants for his children.

We are visiting churches now. We are searching for a home church that is the most faithful to the word of God. These days as we are near the end of the age, I find that more and more churches are becoming apostate. Apostate means falling away from the truth of the bible and having their own man-made doctrines. It will be very hard to find a church that is totaly true to the bible alone and in it's entirety. A lot of churches have women pastors, assistant women pastors, & visiting women pastors. They condone divorce and remarriage. They have divorce and remarriage counceling. They say you can accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour at any time you want. That is satan's most horrible lie from the pits of hell itself. They have the speaking in tongues, signs and wonders doctrines, such as falling backward. They have the sinners prayer, that they tell you to say that will get you saved. They say that baptism in water signifies that you have become saved.
All are man-made doctrines and are found no where in the bible.

The methodist church that we attended, Community United Methodist, where my children joined years ago, is no longer open. It closed it's doors and merged with another church called Grace some years ago. We went to that church, now called Grace Community United Methodist for a visit one sunday and we found it to be seemingly very joyful, loving, caring and true to God's word, as far as we can tell thus far. We have been going there and to another church called Shiloh Baptist. We will be going to one and then the other as we search to see which one seems to be most faithful to the bible. We have visited other churches as well. Please pray that we find a home church in our area that is faithful to the bible.

Well praise God, your prayers have been answered. We are now members of Grace Community United Methodist Church. I am very happy and joyful about being a member of this church and having a home church now. May this church stay faithful to God's word is my prayer. May God continue to give our Pastor, Rev. Walton R. Burke, his truth, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of the bible. May he be blessed with all of the fruits of the spirit, so that he may give his congregation what it needs, and that he will be able to be a good shepherd over his flock. May he give glory, honor, and praise to almighty God!
He seems to be a great pastor and a wonderful and dynamic preacher of the gospel.

Footnote:
Pastor Walton R. Burke and Minister David B.Peterson have left Grace Community UMC and have started a new congregation. Others have left also, including myself and we have come together to form a new church. The name of our new church is New Spirit Christian Community Tabernacle.
It is a non-denominational church and all are welcome.
Please pray God's blessing on this new church endeavor, praises, all glory and honor to almighty God.


Second Footnote:
I have now left New Spirt Christian Community Tabernacle, because I believe that we are literally living in the last days and God, in his word the holy bible, commands the true believers to come out of the churches. To depart out when we see that they have become apostate. When we see the abomination of desolation spoken of in Mt. 24 and Mark 13 happening in the church, we are to come out of Judea' and flee to the mountains. The time has come that judgment must begin at the house of God, and from the bible we can clearly see that it has already begun.

1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Mr 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

Judaea is a picture or representation, of the churches of today. The mountains are a picture or representation, of the kingdom of God.

Isa 2:2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

Ps 36:6 Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast.

Ps 72:3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.

Ps 125:2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.

1Th 2:14 For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:

Ga 1:22 And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ:

Lu 2:4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

Ac 9:31 Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.

Mt 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Lu 21:21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Re 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

I have now come out of the churches altogether and my sisters and I are once again having bible study at home on sunday mornings over the phone with our children. We have come full circle.

Please continue to pray that God in his mercy and grace will save all of my family members. Thank you for your prayers and may God bless you as well. I pray that you will be blessed by what you read here, and that it may lead to your salvation, if you are not yet truly saved. If you are truly saved, then I pray that what you read here will help you and strengthen you in your faithfulness and obedience to the bible. That it may mature you in your growth as a child of God. I am so blessed that God has allowed me to use this website to bring the gospel truth of his word to a lost, dying world on it's way to eternal damnation in hell. I pray that those whom God brings to visit my Christian Corner will receive truth that leads to their salvation and/or strengthen them in their walk of the faith of Christ. To God Alone Be The Glory!

Elizabeth is my middle name, that name was given to me from my beautiful grandmother, my Nana.

My spiritual son Antonio, whom I met on the internet, did a search for me and found out that my name, spelled "Elisabeth" means "God's house of salvation." I also found out that it means "God her oath" and Juanita, my first name, means "consecrated to God", and God's gracious gift. Aren't those beautiful spiritual names to have been given? May I be faithful, and live up to the meaning of those names is my prayer.
Antonio came to visit us in Pa, from Florida in December, 2003. We were very blessed and happy to have met him face to face. We hope we will get to see him again, but if not may God give him the truth that leads to his salvation.

Psalm115:1

Not unto us O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory,
for thy mercy and for thy truth's sake.



PROV 22:6

"Train up a child in the way he should go:
and when he is old, he will not depart from it."




Luke 13:24

Strive to enter in at the strait gate:
for many,I say unto you, will seek
to enter in and shall not be able.



Matthew7:13-14

v.13 Enter ye in at the strait gate:for wide is the gate and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction and many there be which go in thereat:

v.14 Because strait is the gate and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life and few there be that find it.





These flowers are in memory of my

Thank you both. I love you very much~!
