What is bankable? Can you trust the Banks?

The institutions are chartered under State or Federal Banking regulations and can be trusted under the governance, but can the banker(s) be trusted, yes, but some are short-sighted.

As in the case of the largest restaurant chain in their earlier years when capital was never enough in a fast growth mode.  My friend being the finance director who had to get the payroll every week, and each week he was confronted with the statement from the banker…”If I didn’t have the collateral I wouldn’t be giving you this weeks payroll as I do not believe there will be success”.  Then came the day when a large transfer was made from the Investment Banking group that took them public, my friend and his boss said…let’s go over the bank and see what twenty five million looks like in our account, my friend scribbled a note and took it along. As he entered the bank, the banker gleefully said, what a day, we received a large deposit from New York, and there’s more coming, he then said, I knew you guys would make it all along.  My friends said nothing, with a stern look, he handed the note to the banker and said ‘here, take care of this’ the banker almost cried… the note said, “please close the account and wire the funds to the account listed below’.

The company my friend represented is now one of the most recognized restaurant brands on a global scale. The lesson here… Bankers are very good ‘Fair-Weather’ friends.

The Bank of England, China and everywhere else are dependent on the money received from depositors, as the bank itself is just a depository of other people’s money. God’s Bank does not depend on the people’s money… because, conversely, the people have no money, as we are just temporary custodians. God’s bank extends credits to everyone, as we are made a joint heir to God’s Kingdom.

Remember… banks lend umbrella in good weather but take it away when it’s raining.

God is always there especially in your time of needs.

        “Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so”

This little chorus is known by everyone including great theologians…

Yes, Jesus loves me for the Bible tells me so

Jesus loves me this I know

For the Bible tells me so

Little ones to him belong

They are weak, but he is strong

Yes, Jesus loves me

Oh, yes Jesus loves me

Yes, Jesus loves me for the Bible tells me so…

Sung by every Sunday schools around the world in many languages, this 160-year-old chorus is almost the complete story of God’s love for us…

This chorus combined with the most popular Bible Verse of John 3:16 forms the cornerstone to many finding the Lord.…

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. In Context |

Commentary:

Jesus clarified God’s love for ‘The people’ of the world, as we read the following verses, Jesus made it clear that God’s love is for the people.  So, for those that may say that the Bible conflicts itself… This is the clarification, as Jesus said… “Do not love the world of the things of the world, No, He did not hate His creation, He detested the ‘World’ that man has turned in into…

1 John 2:15

Do Not Love the World] Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

Because He has separated us, and called us out of darkness into His Light…

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 

Yes, we are children of light… and Salt of the earth, but remain in Christ…

Matthew 5:13

Believers Are Salt and Light] “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. In Context | Full Chapter 

 

Matthew 5:14

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

Lord Jesus… Today as we acknowledge Your Love and Your Divine Grace, let us share this with many.  Lord thank You for our Visitors and grant us all Your favors by Your Divine Providence. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus in Father and Holy Spirt, now and forevermore… Amen.

Praise:

Philippians 4:19 

Verse  (Click for Chapter)

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

  •   Monday October 21, 2019

Is there life fulfillment in…Continuing your existing career, or; Looking forward to Retirement, or: Starting a New Career? The Mid-Life crisis syndrome may not be present in your life, or you may not have experienced the life-changing events that make up this era of your life.

Rewind back to  the period of your life during the  35-55  age, and compare it to today… what would you change? Whatever stage of life you are in, there’s no need to be susceptible to this ‘Crisis’.

In a world driven by trends, wealth, fame and whatever it takes to be part of the mainstream in our society, it is a quest of many. The ‘I don’t care’ attitude is not the best alternatives but going forward in faith knowing that the ‘Providence’ of the Lord will prevail.

One may say that the Lord’s providence of a better time is not yet realized, pause for a moment, and realize that today is what counts, yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not yet here, and when omorrow arrives, it will be a day the Lord has made and it will be a wonderful day.

Handle with Care… Life is Fragile, and the most Fragile of you is Your Soul, but it can be wrapped in ‘Cotton’   

Text: Exodus 24:12  Then the Lord said to Moses, “Come up to Me on the mountain and be there; and I will give you tablets of stone, and the law and commandments which I have written, that you may teach them.”

Commentary: In life there is a wrong way and a right way. Why is there an instruction sheet enclosed in the little box that contains an electrical switch? Because you will attach the wrong wires to the wrong contacts, so read the wiring instruction to avoid burning the contacts. As we say… when all else fail, read the instructions.

Let us focus on the ‘Core-Aspect’ of why Christ died for us….

First; He loves us, so this is the core reason, Secondly, He wants us to be filled with Joy, Thirdly, He wants us to be where He is.

The above are what we consider to be God’s perspective as the scriptures taught us. Now let’s look at this from our own perspective.  Why do we need a Savior? Because without His salvation we are going down in the Titanic, so the following is more or less of why we need to be saved:

First, we are all survivalist, and will always struggle to survive, Secondly, we would like to avoid being cast into hell and therefore we want to find a way around this. Thirdly, His offer of Lifer Everlasting sounds interesting, but we oftentimes postpone the decision to take up His offer.

Now we want to analyze why did we receive the Ten-Commandments.  Because the absence of a set of rule will cause us to be living a lawless life not governed by a set of instructions of how to live a good life. Just like the instruction of how to wire the switch, the commandments are there to tell us if we do the wrong thing we will be roasted, (like burning-up the wrongly wired switch)

Life is a Vapor, The Bible said… James 4:14

Whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.

Principle: You can’t ‘Test-Drive’ Christianity… to see if it works for you!.

EVENING:

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Deuteronomy 28:13

And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.

Accept His Invitation today; come to our Lord as He is willing to accept you just as you are…

Pray:  Heavenly Father in Jesus our Redeemer we come knowing that You are on the Throne of Righteousness and through You Lord Jesus we can be Redeemed as we come with a contrite heart seeking Your Forgiveness, Lord we thank you for our Visitors and Your Saving Grace and we give You our Praises and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Going the call of duty…

Commentary:  A young man whose mother loved the Lord and taught him about the love of Christ, but this young man went off to college, became a physician buy never followed his mom’s leading. While in internship at a hospital where we saw a lot of accident victims; there was a man who suffered a mighty fall who was not going to make it.  This man was conscious so the young physician asked is there anyone that he would like to notify to come and visit him, the injured man said he had no relative, but he would like his landlady to come and see him so that he could pay what he owed before dying.

The young physician called the landlady who came a few times, the man died peacefully, the physician was asked; what should they do with a bible that they found that the man was reading, the physician said he would take it as the man had no relative.

Taking the Bible, the physician opened the bible and found that this was a bible his mom gave him, when he went off to medical school that he sold. The physician’s name was written inside the front cover written by his mom. He was shocked because of the coincident of this bible coming back to him. He took it home and read all the passages that the man had underlined.  The young physician was led to the Lord after realizing the Word of the Lord and the unconditional love of God.

Sometime in our life when we offer to help someone, we ourselves get more benefit returning to us.  The incident of this young physician’s life’ experience of this accident victim owning a Bible that was owned by the young physician was a divine interaction of the Lord in the life of this young physician; whose mom was fervently praying for her son to come to Jesus.

Once thing for sure, the Lord answers prayers, and He never forgets, He is Omniscient, He is Omnipotent, and our Lord will never leave us nor forsake us.  

Do not neglect to entertain strangers, because somewhere or sometime an angel of our Lord will be sent to you…

The NKJV Bible mention the presence of Angels 190 times. One of the most profound visit of an angel was… Matthew 1:20

But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

The Divine Super-Natural powers of our God far exceeds our thinking abilities… so today we stand in awe of the great things our Lord has done for us; His Divine Redemption through his Crucifixion and His Triumphant Resurrection.  Knowing this we are more awe-struck that Jesus who is God Incarnate would do this for us, yes, he did!  Because we are His greatest treasures, when He created us in His Likeness, He said it was Good… so why did He had to die? Because mankind fell from His Grace, He came to redeemed us.  Just as Jesus is of the linage of David through Joseph His earthly father that fulfilled the prophecy written over 700 years before Christ was born, we are descendant of Adam whom He created, and by the sin of Adam we are all sinners.

EVENING:

In Christ we will have a life of Splendor, without Christ we are separated from God forever in a place of desolation. 

Modern man will say… how can a loving God put him in a place of perpetual desolation (Hell) Yes, He will as His ‘Fair-Warning’ will end on the Day of the Lord. And the Bible also tells us that …  Peter 3:10

[The Day of the Lord] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

Our Lord is a Loving God, but He is also a God of a consuming fire.  Hebrews 12:29

For our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:28-29 

Friends today our message is a little mix of ‘Fire and Brimstone' tone, but there is GOOD NEWS Because He is ready to receive you and make you a Victor and not a Victim…

2 Corinthians 8:9

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich

2 Corinthians 9:8

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

Prayer:  Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus we thank You for Your assurance that in You Lord we have peace and in You we have Victory. Lord we thank You for interceding for us to the Father as no one comes to the Father unless through You Lord. Lord today we thank You for the privilege of serving You and bringing Your Good News to may for Your Glory. Lord bless our many Visitors and grant Your Favors upon us all as we go in faith. Lord we thank you for Your Grace as we call upon Your Name and to You Lord Jesus is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

The simplest of question, answered with a simple and direct answer

In life there’s no simple question, but the question asked by the teacher to a little girl… The teacher asked if she believed that Jonah was swallowed up by a Fish? The little girl said… I will ask Jonah when I see him in heaven. The teacher said what if he is not there, the little girl said…” then you ask him”

One thing for sure… this little girl knew she was going to be in heaven, and if Jonah was not there then he must be in hell, and you guessed it… the teacher was also in hell too.

The Truth will always prevail – A Flower a Day, a short story of telling the truth…

Once upon a time there were two friends who lived in a palace with their families, who worked in service of the King. One of these boys knew a girl he liked so much that he wanted to give her a present.

One day, he was walking with his friend in the main palace hall, and he saw a big vase filled with the loveliest flowers you could imagine. He decided to take one to give to the girl, thinking that no one would see him do so. He did the same thing the next day, and the next, and the next... until, one day, the King noticed how few flowers were left in the vase. He was so angry that he called everyone in the palace to assemble.

When they were all before the King, the boy thought he should say it had been him who took the flowers. However, his friend told him to be quiet, because the King would be terribly angry with him. The boy was paralyzed with fear, but when the King came near, he decided to confess.

As soon as the boy said that he had done it, the King went red with anger, but on hearing what the boy had done with the flowers, a smile appeared on the King's face, and he said,

"I couldn't have thought of a better use for my flowers."

And, from that day, the boy and the King became great friends. They went to the vase and took two of those wonderful flowers, one for the girl, and the other for the Queen.

God will not be mocked… Come clean, but our ‘clean’ is still a dirty rag…so coming to the Lord He will set you free as His Blood of Redemption purifies the heart. And the Bible said…

Revelation 11:15

Seventh Trumpet: The Kingdom Proclaimed] Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” 

Fear not… These are the Words of the Lord:

Matthew 10:26

Therefore, do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed and hidden that will not be known. In Context | Full Chapter |

Isaiah 41:10 [Full Chapter]

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

To our Lord there is nothing Spooky and unsettling… His divine Grace was displayed here on earth at Calvary… There is nothing spooky but all Divine… The Curtain separating the Inner Sanctum of the Temple was torn when Christ said…” It is Finished” the Sun went dark for three hours, a darkness that was without shadows.  He Rose from the Dead on the Third Day, He Ascended into heaven by Levitation. 

So, our Prayers and Brain waves are heard by our Lord even a billion all at once but individually for each of us.

Use this Divine Power that our Almighty God gave us, and not only did He give us this power He gave us an even higher power to ‘elevate’ us to Him through His Son Jesus whom He made the Sole Mediator between us and God.

Devotional: Heavenly Father because no one has even seen You except Your Son, and Jesus my Lord we are privileged to be in Your Holy presence by Your Holy Spirit. It is with Awe that we can experience to Power of Your Glory and Your Holiness.  Lord we give You Preeminence in all things we do and in You Lord Jesus we Praise you and go with Your Peace that surpasses all our understanding… Amen.

A cure that we cannot buy, it’s free and many do not want to receive it?

Today a knee replacement or a Hip replacement are somewhat routine medical procedures, even Stem-Cell therapy that is costly but is becoming more frequently done.

But there’s one cure that money cannot buy… that is Life-everlasting. Imagine a medical procedure that could make one live forever? The cost could be a million dollars, and those that could afford it would be waiting in line for this, only to find out that it is not possible to pay for eternal life.

While Jesus said He came so that we would have an abundant life and to have it more abundantly, and He also said…

John 3:15

that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:36

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.

John 4:14

but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

John 4:36

Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.

John 5:24

“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.

You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me.

Yes, we can trust the Word of the Lord, and as disclosed…

Revelation 21:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

21 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.

Praise:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come… Lord Jesus thank You for Your everlasting covenant of Grace.  Lord we seek Your Divine blessing on our Visitors and us all as we go in Faith trusting You and seek You first. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory forever. Amen.

Imagine not knowing wrong from what’s right? Are you practicing what’s wrong?

Imagine not having the Ten Commandments? Are we born with an instinct of knowing what’s right from what’s wrong?
Do we believe that the primitive people living in an uncivilized part of the world know the difference of wrong versus right?

The event of the missionaries killed in the jungle of Ecuador by the Auca Indians, they were an undiscovered primitive tribe.  Despite the good intentions of the missionaries to reach them through gifts and gestures of hospitality, the instinct of the tribe was to kill.

God did in a Divine way brought them to Him as the wife and sister of two of the Missionaries eventually led many of them to Christ.

Here we see the revelation of what’s good versus what’s bad. It took the lives of five to have won access.

Today the Auca who were known for their violence against other tribes, have changed their ways, with a church community among the tribe.

To read more about the five Martyrs for Christ, visit…

Operation Auca - Wikipedia

Today, we reflected on the lives of Nate Saint and Jim Elliot the team leaders who gave their lives along with their fellow missionaries to gain Christ for many.

So, we ‘Arm-Chair’ Christians enjoying fellowship in air-conditioned buildings should stop and remember it’s a jungle out there.  And the jungle is also right in our neighborhood as many do not know the Lord.

Yes… each of us can be an ambassador for Christ, we are privileged that we do not have to venture into the Amazon jungle to reach others for Christ. Right here on Main Street, Any-Town, USA, Canada, China, or anywhere, there are many unenlightened people of all races that need to know the Lord.

Do you know what you would say to someone to tell them about Christ?

To learn more about how to spread the gospel, send us an email to;

Let us spread the Joy and share the priceless gift of God’s Salvation through Jesus our Lord and Savior.  It is ‘Priceless’ because it cannot be bought at any cost, all the gold in the world cannot purchase it.

incalculable value/worth · of inestimable value/worth · of immeasurable value/worth · invaluable · beyond price · without price ·

Psalm 36:7

How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.

Praises:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord because of You being the ‘Great I AM’ we are protected by Your everlasting Grace… Lord today we gather to give You Praises and to Thank You for You for our Visitors as we go in Faith knowing we will never be ashamed in trusting you as You have called us to be a Joint-heir through You Lord Jesus. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord, to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore Jesus Messiah… Amen.

Jesus saved you from what? Without Him you are lost…

John 15:5 [Full Chapter]

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

I was watching a video interview of a successful industrialist, and the interviewer asked… how does he feel to have achieved his wealth? His reply was first giving thanks to the Father, and know that getting there was because of Him

Leviticus 20:26

You are to be holy to me because I, the Lord, am holy, and I have set you apart from the nations to be my own.

------- 0 ------

What a privilege that He has given each of us, Praise Him.

Isaiah 44:6

The Lord, Not Idols] “This is what the Lord says— Israel’s King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God.

----- 0 ------

Make Him Preeminent as He is the King of kings and Lord of lords.

Isaiah 45:5

I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me,

------ 0 ------

In all your way acknowledge Him and lean not unto our own understanding.

:  We can trust Him, because He is God…

Focus: Being aware that I am a sinner is not enough; I cannot be a good person by works

Thoughts for the day: Who is your witness to your faith?  Do you walk the walk? How much piety do we express in our lives?

Text: Hebrews 12:1

[The Race of Faith] Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

Commentary: Cloud is the new computer jargon as cloud seems endless and can be seen everywhere.  Privacy is a great concern to many. The Bible said we are surrounded by a great crowd (cloud) of witnesses so we are to lay aside the sin which will weigh us down, we are to run the race set before us with endurance. We are to keep looking at the Cross as the Cross is the crossroad that leads to Jesus.

Philippians 2:15 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

15 so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world.

The Bible says, "If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us" (1 John 1:8).

Did you know that there is certain degree of attractiveness to a person because they inspire and are interactive? 

Our mission is to showcase Christ our redeemer by being humble

Developing humility is by doing nothing to even working on being humble or by being conceited about our humbleness.

Being aware that I am a sinner is not enough

I cannot be a good person by works

Philippians 3: Verse 16 to attain Christ by giving him first place in my life.

1. By focusing on what I can do, instead let Him work in me for His glory being the righteousness of God

2. To focus on him and. Grow in him

3. Focus on Jesus not on myself

4. Change from work to Grace by faith

5. There's no substitute for our savior

Principle: Good to know - before all things Our Father, His Son and His Holy Spirit were there. The Holy Trinity was there

The Bible says the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters and God the Father created all things by Jesus Christ. "For by him"--that is, by Jesus Christ--"all things were created" (Colossians 1:16).

Principle:  Humbleness and Meekness shall triumph over pride and the boastful ones will be debased.  Pride debases those that boast and put their trust in money and earthly things….

His Faithfulness:

Romans 8 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Deliverance from Bondage

8 Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.

EVENING:

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Pray for Mercy

The gospel should change our life, by opening up:

 1. A New attitude by imitating Jesus…

2. Make us a better person to progress in Christ,

3. Opening up…a meek person to grow in Christ…to imitate Christ

When enough is enough… Jesus arrived at that point and…

Jesus in the Old Testament

Credit… Article by Glen Scrivener

Christ Present

But more than just patterned and promised, perhaps the most underappreciated facet is that Christ also is present. It’s surprising how explicit the New Testament authors are about Jesus’s presence in the Old Testament:

Jesus is not merely patterned and promised in the Old Testament; he is present. This is vital since the essential character of neither God nor faith has changed from the first covenant to the new. God has always worked in the Trinitarian pattern: from the Father, through the Son, by the Spirit. He did not begin to be triune — the Father did not begin to need a mediator — at Christmas (John 1:1–14). And faith has not changed fundamentally either. True faith does not merely resign itself to a divine plan, nor trust detached promises; faith embraces a promising Person

Christ comes “clothed in the gospel,” as Calvin frequently wrote. We must remember the promises in which Christ is clothed, but let us never preach a set of clothes. It’s the person of the Son that stands at the center of saving faith.

Notation: At the Last-Supper, there were no Lamb that is traditionally served, why?  Because the Lamb of God was present-Jesus the unblemished Lamb of God… Jesus brought ‘Himself’…

Don’t worry about getting old… you are being ‘renewed’ not a new and improved, but being made the ultimate

Can an old dog learn new tricks? Not tricks but be transformed.

2 Corinthians 4:16

Seeing the Invisible] Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.

Ephesians 4:23

and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, In Context | Full Chapter |

Romans 12:2 [Full Chapter]

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Coming to the Lord:

  1. The gospel Provides the hope in Christ Be patient and determined to receive his holy spirit Be compassionate to all Be truthful and loving the main goal is the future in Christ
  2. Goals: Ignore the call to be known let the principle of ’I shall decrease, and He must increase in life' prevail, that I might know Jesus and proclaim Him to all to be intimately connected to Christ; Jesus to be pre-eminent in my life; To put Him first
  3. Philippian 3: 12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord thank You for Your Grace, Your Divine Redemption, and Your Unconditional love.  Lord we praise You and give You first place in all as we yield to You and seek a closer walk with You. Jesus Messiah, we thank You for being our Intercessor as we are presented to the Father by Your Righteousness and by Your Blood of Atonement we are saved.  Father we acknowledge that there is one God and one Mediator between You and man, and it is by You Lord Jesus Christ who gave Yourself a ransom for us all.  Lord, let Your Holy Spirit be indwelling in us as we go in Faith.  Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your favors. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.

Monday October 14th, 2019

Today is Columbus Day… We need a ‘Jesus’ Day,

What are we celebrating? Columbus’s achievements? Name an outstanding accomplishment of Columbus.

Probably the best would be Columbus ability to convince the queen of Span to finance his voyage. His quest was pre-empted by others, including the claims that… Chinese actually discover America?

https://www.thevintagenews.com/2016/09/20/chinese-actually-discover-america

Sep 20, 2016 · It should be pointed out though that Mr. Ruskamp was not the first to claim that the Chinese first discovered America. Gavin Menzies, a retired submarine lieutenant claimed the Chinese had sailed to North American in 1421, a full 30 years before Christopher Columbus was even born.

So much for Columbus… Focus on Jesus. We should have a “Jesus’ Day”

Christmas is the day… as it is Christ for the Masses.

On the first Christmas Day 2019 years ago, Christ came for the masses. His mission was to Redeem us.

It is well-known that when Jesus returns, it will be His ‘Second-Coming’…

We prefer to say it will be ‘Third’ coming as He was here on the day when God said… “Let there be Light” and there was Light, as He Yeshua/Jesus appeared. Here’s the reason why Christ came 2019 years ago…

Now, being made perfect but becoming defective, you may say we are being insolent by saying you and we are being defective.  Consider these parameters:

  1. First if we were ‘Perfect’ then Christ would not have to come and die for our defectiveness as we were already perfect.

  1. If we are already perfect, then we make our Lord a liar, as He said all have sinned and fall short of God’s Glory.

  1. If you or us can get to heaven on our own, then I, the writer prefers not to go, why? Because all who got there will be bragging of how they did this and did that and how all their good deeds got them there. Life will be miserable listening to these bragging stories.  So, those that die with the most toys do not believe that these trinkets will get you into God’s Kingdom.  There’s only one way…

1 John 4:9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.

1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. In Context | Full Chapter 

Today as we read about Christ’s Redemption, and His Redemptive-Power is still alive, and He can redeem you.  Come to the Lord today and receive His Peace…

Go to Him now as he said…” Now is the accepted time”

2 Corinthians 6:2

For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. In Context | Full Chapter |

John 14:27  (Jesus said this…)

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. In Context | Full Chapter 

Today, we are privileged to present Jesus our Lord and Savior… so, we invite you all to know Him.

While we expound the Love of God, we also want to say that His Saving Grace is available for each of us, and what will He be saving us from? His Wrath, because this same Loving God is also a God of a Consuming-Fire…

Hebrews 12:28-29 New International Version (NIV)

28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”

Prayer:  Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord Jesus today as we start the week, we thank You for Your Providence and Your guidance.  Lord as we place all in Your hands, we seek Your Divine blessings on our Visitors and Praise You for Your Graciousness.  To You Lord Jesus be the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

                                Topics for Week of Monday, October 7th Thru 13th, 2019

Monday:           What is your mission this week? Can you use some help? If so, go to the Lord an make your mission His Mission..

Tuesday:           Do you do more asking from the Lord? Is it for self or for others too? And remember to thank Him, and to pause and know that He is God, give Him the Glory.  

Wednesday:     Politics and fair play is like asking the Fox to watch the henhouse, or casting pearls to swine.

Thursday|.        How many times did you turndown a great opportunity? But went with the worst deal?

Friday:                Finding a pearl in your meal… a pearl from your Oyster lunch dish, you will need to find another 120 pieces to make a necklace. Don't expect to find them in your next meals. Find the Lord and get more than pearls.

Saturday:          Separating the chaff from the grains… sometimes it is necessary to blow the trash away. Don't be influenced by people or things of this world, be transformed by God's will for you.

Sunday:              Find Still-Water and Green-Pasture today, your pastor will point you to the Oasis of life.

Note: The sequence used in target practice is Focus-Aim fire. We believe in Aim - focus and then fire as a truer sequence of: Aiming at the target, concentrate on it, then conquer it. But the procedure requires… take a deep breath aim and fire.

                                                                       Sunday: October 13, 2019

             Find Still-Water and Green-Pasture today, your pastor will point you to the Oasis of life.

     Your immediate future and an everlasting future, place it in God’s hands

You have the ability to choose which way you want to go. You must believe great things are going to happen in your life. Do everything you can - prepare, pray and achieve - to make it happen. Ben Carson

For sure ‘Great things are going to happen’ because Jesus said so…

As we read the news events of the day one could wish for the simpler times of life, when there was less stress, less strife.  Our world is a world of a constant battle and there are really no simpler times.

The battle started in the Garden of Eden when Eve was tempted by the serpent.  And this ‘serpent’ was the devil.  Now we may wonder why did God allow the devil to enter the Garden of Eden.  Because Adam and Eve were made in the likeness of God, created with ‘Free-will’ and the devil is always roaming seeking those he can destroy.  The devil was cast out of heaven and even now this evil one is lurking seeking to tempt you and me.

Adam and Eve were not robots and so are we… God gave Moses the Commandments and the purpose of this is to define Right from wrong.  We are given the freedom of choice.

God could have stopped the devil from entering the garden, God trusted Adam, and even after they went against God’s command of ‘Not to eat of the tree’ God was not surprised, God knew beforehand that His creation of Man was good… but not yet ‘Perfect’

We are made ‘Perfect’ in Christ… not by our own ability, but by His Grace and through His Redemption we are cleansed as we are covered by His Divine Blood, and through His Resurrection we are made Perfect.

Good to remember and spread it around…















The Date for His Return is not yet known, but there are many clues and the following states clearly of His return. 

Matthew 24:30-32 New King James Version (NKJV)

30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His [a]elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

      The Parable of the Fig Tree

32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.

2 Peter 3:10

The Day of the Lord ] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. In Context 

But above this God provided a way for you to be saved. Saved from what? the Wrath of God, why? Because as the Bible said…

Romans 3:10

As it is written: “There is none  righteous, no, not one; In Context 

Only by the Righteousness of Christ, by His Redeeming Blood, we are made righteous.

And because of His Grace, we will not be judged, and His Word said…

Romans 8:1

Free from Indwelling SinThere is therefore nono condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. In Context 

Many of our readers may say we are not writing anything new, as we already know this. But, for many these facts are new and sharing the Love of Christ and His Divine Grace is a privilege to be made known.  And, even if you already know that in Christ there’s salvation by His redemption and the assurance of being free from condemnation, it is a good re-assurance to reaffirm our faith in Him.

Father in Heaven, Lord Jesus we come and by Your Divine and Holy Presence in our midst, we come and give You or Praises. Lord bless our Visitors and we all go in Faith knowing that all thing works together for the Good of those who loves You. Lord we reaffirm our love by adoration and thank you for Your Divine Redemption as we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

 Separating the chaff from the grains… sometimes it is necessary to blow the trash

                            Away. Don’t be influenced by people or things of the world, be transformed by God’s      Words of life.

In Biblical history there were people that God dismissed as Chaff. As we see in the event of the speaking donkey…

2 Peter 2:16

New International Version
But he was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey--an animal without speech--who spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet's madness.

Commentary:  As someone said…"Life is too short to be busy." (Tim Kreider) and we are saying… Life without Christ by being busy in this world will cause you to miss the stairway to His Kingdom… Jesus is there pointing the way.  Find Him and follow Him.

So, today move to a higher stratum, take the High-Road and enjoy the beauty and wonders of God’s Creation surrounding you and give thanks for His Graciousness, as we say to God be the Glory as His Grace is sufficient.

Job 19: 25 – 26

For I know that my Redeemer lives,
And He shall stand at last on the earth;
26 And after my skin is destroyed, this I know,
That in my flesh I shall see God.

Coming to the Lord…

The theme today is a) Surrender, b) Believe, c) Be still and know that He is God…

Just as one must believe the instruments and surrender to the fact that the readings are correct and be still knowing that the instruments are showing you your true position.

We all have experiencing going in the wrong direction, think you are headed south but you are in fact headed north. Without a compass, it would be hopeless on the open seas, God did place the stars above that has been guiding mariners for centuries, and our Lord Jesus has been doing the same for centuries.  Centuries? But He was born just 2,017 years ago, Jesus said before Abraham was, He was the ‘I AM’. So, coming to Christ you are not coming to some new kid on the block, He was there on the first day of creation…

Devotional:

Coming to the Lord

Lord today we come knowing that You are not our ‘Co-Pilot’, but You Lord Jesus is the Pilot that of our lives.  Lord today as we look at the ‘reading’ of the times, we remain steadfast that only in You we have the Abundant-Life that You provided. Lord today we thank You for our Visitors and praise You and give You preeminence in all knowing that before Abraham, Lord Jesus You were there as the great “I AM”.   Lord let there be many that will surrender and know that You are God in One of The Father through His Holy Trinity. Lord open our minds and let us be receptive to Your Word as we go with Your Peace… To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

          Finding a pearl in your meal… a pearl from your Oyster lunch dish, you will need

                            another 120 pieces to make a necklace. Don’t expect to find them all. Find The Lord and get more than the pearls.

 Revelation 22:12 [Full Chapter]

[ Epilogue: Invitation and Warning ] “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.

Jesus said His rewards will be with Him…

He (Jesus) is our Rewards

Our Rewards will not be Gold, nor Silver or precious stone as these will be just ordinary building materials used as street pavers.  Our Rewards will be Jesus ‘The’ CHRIST our Lord and Savior who will be always with us.

Luke 6:23

Rejoice in that day and leap for joy! For indeed your reward is great in heaven, For in like manner their fathers did to the prophets. In Context | Full Chapter |

Commentary:

As we often say… If we knew it all we would be God…  recently we had a  discussion on the topic of  the Creation of Earth by our Creator, and our discussion leader said God also commanded us to be good custodians, and we are to be aware that  this is the One and only earth and we are to take care of it as it has to last a very long time… Today, we are writing that the many his interpretations of the place where our Lord will return to.  First,  it is an opinion that the our Lord when He was saying we were to be ‘Good-Stewards” I believe He was referring to His  Great Command to love our neighbors, take His message to the ends of the world and to use the ‘Talent’ that He gave us to multiply it into saving Souls for His Kingdom.

 Christ never established any botanical Garden during His 33 Years on Earth… He never owned a house, nor did He check into a hotel or what was then known as an Inn.  In fact, our Lord placed little value of the things of earth. Jesus was very emphatic by saying...” I am not of this world” and in all of His conversation we are told by Him, “I go to prepare a place for you” and as He told the dying repentant thief on the cross. ”Today you will be with me in Paradise”  Therefore our Lord  is in Paradise… are we to assume that where our Lord is known as Paradise will be his permanent abode, and Earth will be renewed and we who are saved will remain on the new earth?   This earth will pass and according to the description of Heaven (See Below)

This describes a City that we cannot imagine…. But according to Peter in describing the ‘Day of the Lord’  as described in 2 Peter 3: 8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. 9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Come to our Lord while there’s still time, seek Him while He can be found…

Conclusion:

In conclusion, the Bible statements are accepted as the Truth, and nothing but the Truth, and where we will be? Read above… It states clearly that we will be caught up  together with thein the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so, we will be with the Lord forever.

Prayer:

Father in Jesus our Savior we come, Lord Jesus our Redeemer we acknowledge today that You are not of this world and that you have prepared a place for us. Lord we thank you for Your assurance that You will return and where You are, we will be with You Lord. In  Faith we come and in Faith we go following Your instructions to bring the Good News to the ends of the Earth. We will be a bearer of Your Message till that day Lord. We ask Your blessings upon our Visitors today and by Your Divine Powers, bestow on us all Your favors, as we follow You to Green Pastures. In Your Name We Pray Lord Jesus to You be the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

     How many times did you turn down a great opportunity? But went with the worst deal?

Choosing a business partner can be a little like Russian Roulette… You never know your business partners until maybe it’s too late or you discovered that your business partner is a really good associate.

There are at least five occasions when someone proposed taking over projects or extended an offer to co-develop a project. In these instances, they were rejected. In retrospect almost all of these projects turned out to be successful. And conversely, the route that was taken turned out to be among the most challenging of all.

The shortcoming is not just business judgment but going without consulting the Lord is very much like when… Joshua made a similar mistake by proceeding without consulting the Lord.

Joshua’s did not consult the Lord and…

Joshua 9:14 New King James Version (NKJV)

14 Then the men of Israel took some of their provisions; but they [a]did not ask counsel of the Lord.

The Israelites were deceived by acting on their own. There are times when we are told by the Lord. “just go” and stop crying to me” as in the case of Moses when God said to Moses lead the people across the sea.

In most instances it is a case of lacking faith. Faith is intangible it is unseen, but is it is treasured by the Lord, as it is an expression of our belief in Him. So, trust Him today and follow His leading. Yes, when we act in faith, we are rewarded by His Holy Spirit.

Give of yourself, your resources, it’s all from the Lord, and it is by Him, and to Him be the Glory.

As we say… Time is fleeting by; it’s almost already February.  The ‘New Year’ just began and it is already the midterm of the first quarter.

The Lord said He would shorten the time for His people.

Matthew 24:22

And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. In Context |

It is Sunday and we have Good News for you…

1 Timothy 1:15

Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. In Context

The Apostle Paul wrote in his pastoral letters to Timothy, and Paul affirmed that he considered himself to be the worst among sinners. Yet, Paul wrote this…

Romans 8:35

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? In Context | 

Romans 8:39

neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. In Context 

But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.

Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.

Now if we are children, then we are heirs —heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

Romans 5:20,6:16,8:9-17

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage?search=Romans%205:20,6:16,8:9-17&version=NIV

Prayer:

Father God, in Jesus we come, Lord Jesus thank You for being present in our midst by Your Holy Spirit. Lord we give of ourselves and our resources knowing that all is created by You and through You, and to You be the Glory. Lord as we enter a new week, bless our Visitors and grant us all You Divine Providence. To You Lord is the Power and the Glory forever…Amen.

Politics and fair play are like asking the Fox to watch the henhouse, or casting pearls to Swine.

The world of politics… the most traitorous place to be.  It is full of backstabbing, lies and corruption. A place that only a seasoned disloyal person can thrive; or, a strong honest person with the armor of God to be protected.

It is said that George Washington went down on his knees at Valley Forge seeking the guidance of the Lord.
 

See the source image

Here we see a beleaguered president on his knees in the snow praying to the Lord.

Today, we have a Free-Republic in the USA, with a system of Free-Election. So, no president can govern for more than two-terms.  I China, there is a President for life. And this system is not a democracy, it is a dictatorship.

Here are a few ‘President for life’

Xijinping-China

Julius Caesar - Rome

Adolph Hitler – Nazi party

Napoleon – France

All these men made themselves to be of a sovereign status.

As history has shown, their legacy is a checkered accomplishment.

The Lord of lords and King of kings is reigning on the Throne of Righteousness. Jesus ‘The’ Christ reigns supreme as One with the Father.

Why every world map you're looking at is WRONG: Africa, China and India are distorted despite access to accurate satellite data (Excerpt from: The Daily Mail-UK)

  • The distortion is the result of the Mercator map which was created in 1596 to help sailors navigate the world
  • It gives the right shapes of countries but at the cost of distorting sizes in favor of the wealthy lands to the north
  • For instance, north America looks larger, or at least as big, as Africa, and Greenland also looks of comparable size
  • In reality, you can fit north America into Africa and still have space for India, Argentina, Tunisia and some left over
  • Map suggests Scandinavian countries are larger than India, whereas in reality India is three times the size. 

Even in illustrating the Maps, there was a high degree of prejudice applied. For instance, north America looks larger, or at least as big, as Africa, and Greenland also looks of comparable size

In reality you can fit North America into Africa and still have space for India, Argentina, Tunisia and some left over.

So, we have just proven that even the world map we have relied on for centuries are inaccurate not by human error, but by deceitful intent to diminish the lesser developed countries.  Fortunately, God’s makes give no preference to any specific person, country or even to the highest spiritual leaders.

Jesus gave us more than a glimpse of His Kingdom, it is fully described in the book of Revelation, and beyond this, He made you a Joint-Heir to be an owner.

The Holy Bible is still the single best seller of all times. The author is God… as we read from Genesis to Revelation, the oldest book is JOB written by an ‘unknown’ author.

Preface… if we knew everything then we would be God. So, as the Bible said… professing to be wise, they became fools…

Mark 14:24

And He said to them, “This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many. In Context | Full Chapter |

Tuesday: September 8, 2019  

        Do you do more asking from the Lord? Is it for self or for others too? And

                remember to thank Him, and to pause and know that He is God. Give Him the glory.

I have friends that call me, and some calls are to ask how to deal with a problem, and a few are calls of just checking on me and mostly goodwill calls. I welcome these calls and it is a privilege to have friends, and I consider all my friends to be ‘True’ friends and not ‘fair-weather’ friends. Because I can call on them with my problems too.

Today a greater portion of calls received are from tele-marketers made by a robot-dialing machine. Most of these robot-calls are selling auto warranties, student-loan forgiveness (which I do not need) and some are phishing phony calls trying to get your information.

Let’s hope we have a day without any robot-call today.

As said, your call to the Lord which could be one out of billions, He will hear you and He will respond.

Don’t be anxious, stay calm, wait on the response, do not doubt…

“Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 

Text:  2 Kings 6:16-18 (NKJV)

16 So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 18 So when the Syrians came down to him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, and said, “Strike this people, I pray, with blindness.” And He struck them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.

Commentary:

The Power of Prayer of a Righteous man…. James 5:16

 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.  

James 5:15-17 (in Context) 

His Promise:

Luke 1:53
He has filled the hungry with good things, And the rich He has sent away empty.
Luke 1:52-54 (in Context) 

His Faithfulness:

Psalm 103

New King James Version (NKJV)

Praise for the Lord’s Mercies

A Psalm of David.

103 Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Ephesians 4 (NASB)

Unity of the Spirit

4 Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.

Conclusion:

The event of what is document above was in a time of around 550 BC… 2 Kings 16 So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha18 So when the Syrians came down to him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, and said, “Strike this people, I pray, with blindness.” And He struck them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.

In a more recent time a visitor came to one of the mission stations in Haiti and said “I came to raid the Mission camp last night, but I had to turn away as the entire camp was surrounded by security patrol… after he told the story to the Relief crew, they told him that they had no security guards, and what he saw was the Angels of the Lord protecting the Camp.  This person was so moved that the God of the Christian Relief was so powerful that he came to the Lord and changed his ways.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father we come in Jesus our Redeemer and our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity… Lord Jesus Messiah, we lift You up on High and give You our Praises and thank You for Your Divine Grace. Lord today we go in Faith knowing that You are interceding for us and that we can look to that day when we shall see You as You are. Lord bless all Visitors coming to this Good news Website and let your Word be received and grant to us all Your peace; we ask this in Your precious name, and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

What is your mission this week? Can you use some help? If so, go to the Lord and

make your mission His mission.

Jesus laid out our future, the Future endowed by the Lord was clearly outlined. He gave us the secret for Life-Everlasting, and while we are here, He laid out His Plan for us to have an abundant life.

What is the Abundant Life that Jesus said He came to give us?

In the Bible, all of what we need to know are written inside the Holy Book.


Psalm 37:4
New International Version
Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
of your heart.

Do not hold back… do as the widow did, she gave of her last coin in the offering box, as we see… Romans 11: 33-36 says it all, “ It is BY HIM, and it is FROM HIM,  and it is TO HIM.

But as Ananias and his wife did, they did break the covenant of God’s Providence, by withholding a portion, they lacked faith that God would not Restore to them what they give.  As said…. “We cannot OUT-GIVE God” because when we delight ourselves in Him, He will give us the Desires of our hearts.

His Promise / His Faithfulness: Romans 8:38-39

New King James Version (NKJV)

38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Commentary:

What is a ‘Break-through’ Prayer? Our Lord spoke of many that Prayed, and He warned about using repetitious phrases and praying like many ceremoniously… One of the Prayers mentioned in the Bible is a short and direct sincere Prayer…’Lord Save me a Sinner’.

Genelle Guzman-McMillan the last survivor from the World Trade Towers, her prayer was answered while trapped on the 13th floor in the rubble that fell on her. Genelle’s story has been featured in many publications of her prayers being answered and her miraculous rescue and recovery and becoming a born-again Christian. She tells the story of being found after pushing her hand through an opening and someone held unto her, he told her that his name was Paul and he won’t let go of her until they get her out, she had an instant calmness even being semi buried.

 After her rescue and meeting the crew of rescuers, she asked for Paul and they said they had no one with the name of Paul, Genelle tried to find Paul but he never stepped forward, she had given her life to Christ while buried in the rubble, and now realized her rescue was for a purpose and her faith in Christ led her to know that her miraculous rescue by ‘Paul’, finding her was a mission from God hearing her ‘Break-Through’ Prayer in her time of need.

Listen… somewhere out there your name was spoken, answer the call and get answers…

Just think we are NOT redeemed by Silver or Gold, but by the Blood of Christ, He gave us a pedigree that is so high it cannot be bred, bought or created by any genetic engineering. Only by His Blood of Atonement we are ‘Sealed’ with Life-Everlasting to be in His Kingdom.

Text:  1 Peter 1: 13-21 Living Before God Our Father

13 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; 15 but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

17 And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; 18 knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. 20 He indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world but was manifest in these last times for you 21 who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord we thank You for Your Word of assurance that You will never leave us not forsake us, and that nothing can separate us from Your Love for us as we trust in You Lord Jesus.  Lord let this day be filled with Your Peace that transcends all understanding. Lord bless our Visitors as in You we have Victory. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Sunday: October 6th, 2019

            It is a special day today, and the Lord is listening….

He is listening every moment, but on this special day He is listening for the Praise and Adoration from us, as we appreciate His Love and Adoration granted to us by His Grace.

We Praise because He is God, and we can say He is a Good, Good God because of His Unconditional love for use

He created us in His image unblemished in perfection; but there was a blemished, not by His design; but by the sin of Adam.

This blemished opened the door to sin. We came without sin, but because of that forbidden fruit, we were made vulnerable to sin.

A newborn baby is sinless, but because of our vulnerability caused by the original sin, all became vulnerable and sin over-shadowed our unblemished souls.

But God is a loving God and He provided a way for us to be redeemed from the condemnation… Through Jesus who came and by His Divine crucifixion and Resurrection, our sin was taken to the cross.  How is this possible? Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice for us.

So, let’s look at the Sacrifice that was the Passover…

God provided the Israelite with the protection from the angel of death, by the blood of the lamb the first Passover was realized, and by the Blood of Christ; we are marked for the final Passover… which is the Day of the Lord…

2 Peter 3 New King James Version (NKJV)

God’s Promise Is Not Slack

3 Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of [a]us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and [b]perdition of ungodly men.

But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long-suffering toward [c]us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Today’s devotion is to give the Lord our Praises, and for those that may feel it is more a sermon than a devotional, let us thank our Lord for His Grace, and that through Him we are made perfect. So, use His wonderful Grace to share the Gospel of God’s Good News of His priceless gift of Redemption through Jesus

Prayer:  Father in heaven in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord today we put our hope in You and thank You for Your providence upon our Visitors and us all… By Your Grace Lord we acknowledge You as the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal, and through You we have life-everlasting by Your Grace. We pray this in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Saturday: October 5, 2019

Send the Holy Spirit when the devil calls, he will run…

Have you ever seen a vagrant run?

James 4:7

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Proverbs 28:1

The wicked flee though no one pursues, but they are as bold as a lion.

Imagine that the devil offered Jesus the Kingdoms of the world if Jesus would worship him? This is an example of what is offered to everyone daily. But the devil was a fool, as he should have known that Jesus was the Son of God, and Jesus was with the Father at the beginning of it all.

As we read in Colossians 1: 16

Colossians 1:16

For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. (End of text)

Commentary:

So, how could the devil offer to Jesus what Jesus created? Because he was evil, he was evicted from the Kingdom of God; he is the deceiver and he want to deceive many.

Let us do what Jesus did…  Resist the devil and he will flee.

No one can give away what is not owned, nor can you sell what you do not own. There are many

Sellers of stolen goods, they are criminals, and those that purchase stolen goods are called “Fence”.

Do this…

Seek first His Righteousness.

Matthew 6:33 [Full Chapter]

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Our message today is to highlight the unwavering Word of Jesus, when He told John to ‘Write these things down’

The most Re-Assuring words are…

Revelation 22:12

Jesus Testifies to the Churches] “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to everyone according to his work. In Context | Full Chapter |

While Jesus mentioned ‘According to his work’ we are highlighting that His Reward is brought to those who know Him, and He knows them… Because ’Work’ will not make us eligible for His Kingdom.

Jesus did not have a dream, Jesus had a plan, and His plan as revealed in the Gospel which is the Good News of His Redemption through His Divine Resurrection which is what we proclaim here today.

Principle:  We cannot purchase one of the places that our Lord is preparing, it is only received by a Grant, a Grant from God through His Son Jesus our Redeemer.

His Promise / His Faithfulness: Ephesians 1:7 (NIV)

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace

Conclusion: God’s Providence is paramount to all of what this world can offer. Because what this world offers are all temporary. We may have some fulfillment when we get that new car, but in a few years, it will be ready to be considered a means of transportation that we must start looking to replace. All our fine clothes, shoes, etc. will need replacing. Nothing last forever, only the love of our Sovereign God. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.


What Jesus said… “I will never leave you nor forsake you” this is a statement that will be forever…

Therefore, we can focus at: Titus 2:13-14 (NIV)

13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

Action/Coming to our Lord:   For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God… Romans 8:14 NKJV

Ephesians 2:8-9New King James Version (NKJV)

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Prayer: Heavenly Father because of Jesus our Redeemer and through You Lord we have Victory and we can boldly declare that this day is the best day of all because Your Lord Jesus paid it all.  Lord we thank you for our Visitors and we ask your Divine blessing on us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Be fearless without arrogance, remain calm with composure, the Lord is in charge…

King Saul was chosen to be king, but when he became jealous of David, and his arrogance became enraged to the extent of wanting to kill David. David on the other hand remained calm and even when David had the opportunity to kill Saul, he didn’t. What David did is what we are to do, remain calm and know that the Lord is in charge.

David was fearless as he stood before the Philistine’s hero; Goliath. Goliath on the contrary, was arrogant, and mocked David and the mighty Goliath was killed. Goliath’s death is attributed to his mocking the Lord and cursed God, and the latter is the chief reason one should refrain from such actions as what Goliath did.

So, arrogance is a trait that we must abandon and come to Jesus…

Today. We have the Lord’s assurance…

Philippians 1:6

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. In Context | 

Philippians 2:13

for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

Whom do we fear? No one… because we have the assurance of our Lord… as said:

Hebrews 13:6

So, we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

In Context | 

Bear this in mind…. Because of Jesus’ unchanging Grace… through the storms of life, He is Lord, Lord of all… Dressed in His Righteousness alone, faultless I will stand before His throne by His Grace.

Be aware… Fame and fortune cannot take anyone to the Lord’s Kingdom.  It is only by His Grace…

Romans 11:6

And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work. In Context | 

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, In Context 

Hebrews 13:9

Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. For it is good that the heart be established by grace, not with foods which have not profited those who have been occupied with them. In Context 

Prayers:

Heavenly Father It is with Awe that we come knowing Jesus our Redeemer rose triumphantly and sits on the Throne of Righteousness. Lord Jesus our Sovereign Eternal God in Your Holy Trinity of our Father and the Holy Spirit, we come today knowing that we serve You our Living God who is Lord of lords and King of kings and You Jesus our Messiah is our Salvation.  Lord today as we go forward in Faith, grant us Your Favors and equip us as we seek to serve You and are privileged to be a Vessel bearing your Word of Life. Lord bless our Visitors coming to this website and let Your Peace be upon all, as all we do is for Your Glory. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Thursday: October 3, 2019

Remember…If the Lord is for You no one can be against you…

An example of this, when – 16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refused to serve the golden statue…

Daniel 3

13 Then Nebuchadnezzar, furious with rage, summoned Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. So these men were brought before the king, 14 and Nebuchadnezzar said to them, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, is it true that you do not serve my gods or worship the golden statue I have set up? 15 Now, if you are ready, as soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes, and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the statue I have made. But if you refuse to worship, you will be thrown at once into the burning fiery furnace. Then what god will be able to deliver you from my hands?”

16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 17 If the God whom we serve exists, then He is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace and from your hand, O king. 18 But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden statue you have set up.”

The Fiery Furnace

19 At this, Nebuchadnezzar was filled with rage, and the expression on his face changed toward Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. He gave orders to heat the furnace seven times hotter than usual, 20 and he commanded some mighty men of valor in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and throw them into the burning fiery furnace.

21 So they were tied up, wearing robes, trousers, turbans, and other clothes, and they were thrown into the burning fiery furnace.

22 The king’s command was so urgent and the furnace so hot that the fiery flames killed the men who carried up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. 23And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, firmly bound, fell into the burning fiery furnace.

24 Suddenly King Nebuchadnezzar jumped up in amazement and asked his advisers, “Did we not throw three men, firmly bound, into the fire?”

“Certainly, O king,” they replied.

25 “Look!” he exclaimed. “I see four men, unbound and unharmed, walking around in the fire—and the fourth looks like a son of the gods!”

26 Then Nebuchadnezzar approached the door of the burning fiery furnace and called out, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out!”

So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out of the fire, 27 and when the satraps, prefects, governors, and royal advisers had gathered around, they saw that the fire had no effect on the bodies of these men. Not a hair of their heads was singed, their robes were unaffected, and there was no smell of fire on them.

28 Nebuchadnezzar declared, “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who has sent His Angel and delivered His servants who trusted in Him. They violated the king’s command and risked their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. 29 Therefore I decree that the people of any nation or language who say anything offensive against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego will be cut into pieces and their houses reduced to rubble. For there is no other god who can deliver in this way.”

30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the province of Babylon.

****

The above reflected that the king realized that his golden image was just a piece of metal. When we too are faced with challenges, do not give-in, stand your ground knowing that Jesus is in charge.

As the We are surrounded…

Psalm 34:7

The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them.

Prayer

Heaving Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come… Lord Jesus knowing that You are in our midst as we gather in Your Name.  Lord today let it be a day filled with Joy because of Your Grace. Lord we thank You for Your unconditional love. Lord we give you our praises as we ask Your Divine blessings upon our Visitors. To You Lord be the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen

Wednesday: October 2. 2019

Make no judgment because of what you heard, third party hear-say is usually wrong or false…

Are you going in Faith, or going by risk? How can a farmer sleep through a Thunderstorm that may produce Hail?

Text: Hebrews 9:27 And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment,

Commentary: Hail destroys the corn crop, just imagine that you have several hundred acres planted with Corn, and somewhere along the way when the corn is about to yield a bumper harvest, then comes the weather report of an oncoming unstable weather with a band of Thunderstorm and potential Hail or even a tornado.  Life is like this

Unfortunately, in life; life insurance coverage gives you benefits only to a point; the best coverage of the life-insurance will make you worth more dead than alive.  

In God His Assurance is not just a replacement of what we currently have but a new irreplaceable place that He has prepared for us. And our new life will be a ‘New-Creation’

Consider the risk of not having insurance for the crop, but what’s worse is going along in this world without insurance.  All things are replaceable, except one thing, your life, and this life that you now live can never be lost, except that your body will return to dust and you will live-on forever. So why do we need Insurance?  The need to have ‘Assurance’ for our future beyond this life is a must. So how can we obtain this Assurance?  The Bible said, “it is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgment’…

Notice it said; ‘Once to die’ but after this the Judgment… If we die how can we be around for the judgment? Factually, you will never really die. So, to avoid judgment, come to Jesus and accept Him, and be among the believers that will not be condemned…

The Bible said every knee shall bow and every tongue will confess. But as we read in Romans 8: 1,

Romans 8 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Deliverance from Bondage

8 Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His Own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do soand those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

Principle:

Hebrews 9: 28 so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

Philippians 4:6

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Mark 9:23

And Jesus said to him, “‘If You can?’ All things are possible to him who believes.”

Mark 10:27

Looking at them, Jesus said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.”

Wait on the Lord, in the fullness of time He will provide. Ask and He will provide…

Ephesians 1:10

New King James Version
that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him.

Romans 11:33 

Context

      33. Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways! 34. For WHO HAS KNOWN THE MIND OF THE LORD, OR WHO BECAME HIS COUNSELOR? 35. Or WHO HAS FIRST GIVEN TO HIM THAT IT MIGHT BE PAID BACK TO HIM AGAIN? 36. For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.

Patience is a virtue, and it is said that this shows a high standard.

Faith is our walk, but fellowship in Christ is our rest. Faith is the road, but communion with Jesus is the Well from which the pilgrim drinks

OUR LIVES ARE A REFLECTION OF OUR FAITH…To live a Life worthy of our (his) Calling, But while we are showing that we belong to Jesus Christ, I must walk with Humility and Gentleness, patience, bearing one another in love, striving to keep unity in peace, and be a Believer as a member of the Body of Christ. Ephesians 4: 1-16

                             Commentary:                       

Praying to the Lord is the Most-Important Meeting we can have in our daily lives…

All other things we do are secondary, as only our Lord can Divinely prepare us for the day, He can smooth our tasks, inspire us, gives us His Blessings, and by His Grace we can cope with all aspects of life’s responsibilities.

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him (Jesus) that if we ask anything according to His will. He will hear us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.  From: 1 John 5: 14-15 NKJV 

Ephesians 6: 1. We face the power of darkness, 2 the spiritual forces of evil,  so we must have the Armor of our Lord and 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

 Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. James 4:17 NKJV

Prayer:

Father we come in Jesus our Redeemer our Eternal Sovereign God in One of Your Divine Trinity, Lord Jesus thank You for Your Graciousness and for Victory in You as we give You our Praises knowing that You Lord is our Salvation and by Your Grace we are saved. Lord Your infinite Power and Divine Glory are our shelter in troubled times, Lord let those that are experiencing turbulent times in their lives find You from this mission of Good News Forever; and let the number of visitors grow as we do this for Your Glory and am privileged to serve You Lord.
