My name is Dwayne Peterkin. I was re-baptized April 2011 and since then I have been doing my best to obey the Lord Jesus Christ and do his will. In this sinful world IT IS NOT EASY to stand up for God. You'll be tested, friendships may fall by the wayside, old habits will fade away. I hope that as I share my Faith Walk, others are encouraged on theirs. I hope you join me on this journey.

The April Fool

Hi Friends,

Yesterday was April Fool’s Day, and I must admit I used to love it.  Those that know me know that I love to laugh and have a good time.  I was always a prankster and I used to love “getting” people.  Remember the sour gum? The dollar attached to the string? The buzzing handshake?  The squirting Flower?  The fake lottery scratch off?  The list goes on and on.  These were tricks on those that were not prepared,  those that were caught “sleeping”.

With age comes Wisdom.  Looking  at April Fool’s day in my new mindset,  It leads me to think of how Satan, Lucifer, the Devil (insert any name here) is the ultimate Prankster, the ultimate Deceiver.   He makes that car, that job, or that woman, or that man,  look so good!! He wants us to pursue those thoughts, or desires to attain that person or possession, he wants us to go down that road he made so that he can trick us and make us fall for it.  All this so he can laugh at us when we have to pick up the pieces from the damage he has done.  So he can enjoy watching us have to dig ourselves out of the ditch he has led us in to.

1 Peter 5:5 says Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”

We need to stay focused in this world.  Through TV, Movies, and Music, there are so many ways in which we are subtlety, and subliminally deceived.  We need to stay alert because the old saying is so true that “If you fall for anything. You will stand for nothing.”

Christ is coming soon my friends and he tells us in His Word “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 KJV,

But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment. 2 Peter 3:10 New Living Translation

Brothers and Sisters, we need be alert so that we can stand in the Day of Judgment .  Let us not be the April Fool’s of this world. Stay close to Jesus Christ, seek him daily in your prayers and bible study so that you will not be deceived.  The things of this world are temporary.

“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. Matthew 6:19-21

Be Blessed my Friends.  Until Later…..I’m just tryingtobeamanofgod.
