DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday: December 8, 2019

         Enjoy the Power and be a part of it today. The Holy Spirit is in church, go see for yourself and receive it…

Is your church a Spirit-Filled place?

When you allow the Holy Spirit to be in you, nothing else will be needed, nothing can pierce God’s armor

Jesus said, I am with you always…

Matthew 28:20 

(Jesus) and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

The assurance of the Lord…

Romans 8:31-39 

More Than Conquerors] What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. ...

Romans 8:15

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.”

   16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 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.

+

Coming to the Lord ritually will not reach Him… Our worship must be Spirit-filled knowing that we come without any other ‘idols’, not just leave them behind, but toss them away.  For our God is Jealous God…

Deuteronomy 32:16

They made him jealous with their foreign gods and angered him with their detestable idols.

What is our idol? It’s not necessarily a statute or a symbol, it could be anything that you pay more attention to, than the Lord.

The world’s demand for our time to cope with the daily requirements, we must be aware that we do not fall into the world’s enslavement of project management, etc.  Leave yourself time with the Lord and the demands of the daily details will become second place.

The bondage of sin…  Galatians 4: Formerly, when you did not know God, you were slaves to those who by nature are not gods. But now that you know God—or rather are known by God —how is it that you are turning back to those weak and miserable forces? Do you wish to be enslaved by them all over again?

Commentary:

Sin can be in many forms, even in one’s attempt to expound the gospel, and innocently, many learned men may have encroached on our Lord by trying to ‘exalt’ oneself in questioning the deity of our Lord and His supremacy.  As we discuss…

Man, in their finite thinking is missing the key elements and Facts… What are they? 

No. 1 = God, No. 2 = Creation, No. 3 = The Power of the Almighty.  Yes, it would take aeon and yet we could not achieve any of the grand designs of our Creator’s creation if we mere mortals were ‘trying’ to create the elements…

Man has never really ‘created’ anything, we sometimes by accident stumble upon something useful, and in some case, we by accident discovered a substance that we do not even know what to do with it)

Conclusion:

Do not look for any ‘New’ Doctrine… all of what we need to know or will ever need are already contained in the Holy Bible. There is no need to add or modify the Word of God. We cannot trust in… ‘Hard work,’ fame, wealth, physical appearances and worst of all Pride all these can be gone in an instant. Only what’s done in Christ will Last.

Have a Blessed Sunday – Praise the Lord for He is Worthy.

Prayer:

Father in Heaven in Jesus our Lord and savior we come. Lord Jesus knowing that You are on the Throne of Righteousness, and by Your intercession for us all, we seek Your Divine Blessings and Guidance.  Lord grant us Your Peace and Your Favors to all including our Visitors, as it is for Your Glory.  Lord by Your Power release those from the burdens of this world as we seek You and place You first in our lives. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Saturday: December 7, 2019

       The answers to an abundant life are revealed, need to know? Get answers from the Bible, it’s in there…

Jesus reveal this, where? First, we will not add or subtract from God’s word.

Matthew 6:33 (NIV)

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

What good is Oil without a drop of Water, without water you die, oil cannot quench your thirst.   God’s Grace is better than gold and it is never on Sale, it is Free, it’s even got your name on it. Claim it now.

Commentary:  The Streets of Heaven is paved with Gold like a reflecting mirror, Why? Because in God’s Kingdom nothing will be man-made, and man has not found a way to make Gold.


What’s better than Gold? Something that you cannot buy, earn or steal it. It cannot be handed down by your parents, nor can your best friend give this to you.

This is what’s better than gold…. The Gift of God’s Salvation through Jesus our Redeemer.

 For many Christians reading this they will say… I already know this so why are we talking about this?  Because Jesus gave us all His great commission. And this includes you, me and everyone.

What is His Great-Commission?

Matthew 28:

The Great Commission

16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Today is a day to publicly give the Lord your praise and thanks for His love…

What do we have to be thankful for? Factually every day is a day of Thanksgiving…
Is God looking out for the Poor? Yes… Factually we are all ‘Poor’ but through the ‘Riches’ of our Father through His Son Jesus who became poor so that we may have His riches, we are all part of what God said in…

The Bible in many instances condemns the world… such as: Romans 12:2 (NIV)

Do not conform to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Jesus… John 16: 33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Commentary: There was nothing wrong with the World because it is God’s Creation and He said ‘it was good’ but sin entered the world and man was led into a live that transformed this world into the place we now know.

Jesus makes us complete:  We are saved by Grace... Ephesians 2:8-9

Good News Translation (GNT)

8-9 For it is by God's grace that you have been saved through faith. It is not the result of your own efforts, but God's gift, so that no one can boast about it.

Galatians 2:21 Good News Translation (GNT)

21 I refuse to reject the grace of God. But if a person is put right with God through the Law, it means that Christ died for nothing!


All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God…
We cannot say we are without sin
If we do, we make a liar of our Lord Jesus
We cannot earn our way to His Kingdom
No one comes to the Father unless through Jesus
We are saved by Grace and not of anything we do.
 This is what our Lord said… “You Must be Born-Again” and being Born-Again, we are a new Creation.  

Therefore, our Lord said, we will be ‘Transformed’ and Sanctified… “Without Sin, in a place where there is no Sin, it is a place of Splendor filled with the presence of our Lord Jesus that radiates His Joy in a place He called Paradise.

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 Your Saving Grace and the many Visitors that we are privileged to serve for Your Glory, we give You our Praises and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Friday: December 6, 2019

         2,019 years= 202 decades = 105,000 weeks. At age 100 you will live for 5,200 weeks, why these weeks?

In certain parts of Latin America, keeping appointments can be tardy… sometimes an appointment may be missed by a day without any major remorse, as it could be said…’What is a day between friends’

The adage of ‘Familiarity breeds contempt’ and ‘kindness mistaken for weakness’ these two practices are often applicable to one’s relationship with the Lord. Why? Our Lord is Loving, Gracious and is always ready to accept us, then His kindness is freely given, and he never impose on us His demand.

We thank the Lord for His Graciousness, His Love and His Providence. We also thank Him for giving us discernment to use the knowledge from Him to know that all good things are from Him.

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

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,

Romans 12:2 

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.

Devotional: 

Lord Jesus as we read Your Word of assurance, we thank You for Your promise that You will never leave us nor forsake us… Therefore, Lord for those that are having their loved ones being challenged Your assurance that all must come to You as a little-child, knowing that the best is yet to come, as you have provided a place of splendor for us all.

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. Ignore the call to be known, let the principle of ’I shall decrease and He must increase in life' prevail.
    1. 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 

EVENING

This is Jesus' own example to have a prize a 'core' we cannot build without the core
No one compares with Christ
By sharing my life with Christ I will become more like Christ
We must share in Christ's sufferings and in his victory

Because Christ has made me his own...

Philippians 3:12 Pressing Toward the Goal

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.

Philippians 3: 9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith.

Have a zeal to serve Him, when we can say… I have found a friend in Christ, knowing that Ephesians 2: 8-9 is by His Grace…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 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 Father and man, and it is by Your Son Jesus Christ who gave Himself 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.

Thursday: December 5, 2019

     If Priceless? does it mean that it is free? Yes and No, but cannot be purchased, and can only be received…

In a world of ‘bait and switch’ if the deal sounds too good to be true, it probably not real.

Sales and marketing practices have made the salespeople of used-cars synonymous with liars and to be called a ‘used-car’ salesman, this is quite an insult.

The Lord Jesus is the only one that we can accept His word. In the case when He said…

John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I ...

                                ... The thief comes not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy I am come that they
                                 might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. ...

               

Are you having an ‘Abundant-Life”? If you know Him, the answer will be yes.

But you may say…If life is abundant, where is my new house, my new car? Ask Him… He can make all things possible in His Name. But, be aware in the heavenly realms, Abundance is not material things, Jesus was saying, that our lives would abundantly bless with His Love, His Providence and full of Joy.

The ‘More’ Abundantly statement is a reference to the ‘Real’ abundance that He has provided.

What and where is this ‘Real-abundance’? remember He does not save you by silver or gold…

1 Peter 1:18 For you know that it was not with perishable things ...

    ... For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from the fathers, not with perishable things like silver or gold, ... 

       Why? Because we are saved by the precious Blood of Christ.

            Romans 5:9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much ...

            ... Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall                                           be saved from the wrath of God through Him. ... 

+

  For the unenlightened, one may ask, why do I have to be saved?  And why am I being saved from?

First, we can say… I did not ask to be born, and here I am subject to the challenges of this world.  Why do we have the challenges of doing what we have to do? By probing here, we are getting close to the answer.

Secondly, humans weren’t supposed to be dealing with the daily challenges, working, making a living, dealing with health issues, aging and having strife, confrontation, wars and all that we hear or see on the evening News.

If this was not intended for us, then why are we here?

Because God evicted our fore parents from the place of Splendor that He created for us. This was Eden. From that time to now we are faced with a world that we have.  There will be a day when Eden will be restored, and even more like a city as described…

Revelation 21:18

... The material of the wall was jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass. ... jasper. The city was pure gold, like pure glass. 

Getting there:

So, let us unwrap Jesus’ Priceless Gift…

The Gospel is the Good News, and this is all about Jesus and what He has done for you and us.

Matthew 24:14

14 This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.

God Loves you, so He sent His Son Jesus to Redeem us.

John 3: 16 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

But you may say, “I am a good person” I do not steal, I do not break the law and I am aware that there is a God and Jesus is His Son, but I have nothing to do with Him”

Guess what? You are still a Sinner…Because as a descendant from Adam we are inherently born with the Sin inherited from Adam. All our righteousness and goodness are like a filthy rag. So, Jesus came because of the Love of God.  Come to Him now as our Lord Jesus is waiting to welcome you with open arms under Grace.

His Faithfulness:

You can receive His Redemption right now, Just come to Jesus and open your heart to Him by saying, Lord Jesus I am a Sinner, and I want to be saved by Your Grace and to receive Your Holy Spirit in my life to change me and make me a child of Yours, Lord come into my heart and I will be a living temple for Your Spirit to dwell, Lord Jesus I thank You for Your Salvation and the privilege of coming in Your Holy presence. Amen.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Redeemer and Your Holy Anointed Son, Jesus Messiah, we come and lift You up on High and Praise You for Your UN-Conditional Love and Your Redemption at Calvary. Lord we acknowledge You on the Throne of Righteousness and seek Your Divine intercession to grant us Your Peace and lead our Visitors to Green Pastures and Still Waters. Lord We commit all to You and give You the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

 Remember the Gifts of the wise men? let our gifts be the first fruit, God’s gift to you is priceless…

Heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ’

Beyond the Olympic Gold – a Far more Precious Medal ‘Un-earned’ and in fact Priceless...

Text: Romans 8: 14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 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.” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 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.

Commentary: 

What a privilege our Lord has given us, this is far more valuable that all Olympic Gold Medals as the Olympic Gold is worth only $620.70 each. Imagine being CO-HEIR with Jesus?  Yes, and this is already confirmed, not just something we wish for and have to earn, it is already given to us, all we have to do is to receive it. There are no Judges, no dispute or can anyone contest it, as it is GIVEN by The Almighty!

Fortunately for an Olympian that won a Gold medal he or she is not depending on the round metal disc to be enriched by it.  It only contains less than $500 worth of gold; the balance is made up of silver and copper. Only by sponsored endorsements that will give them access to any financial rewards from the Gold Standing in their achievements.

 A Born-Again follower of Christ receives much more as the Gift from our Lord is Priceless and can never be lost, stolen or melted down.  The Gift of Salvation is ‘Forever’ and this Gift is in us, as we live forever, His Priceless Gift is not just a ‘Passageway’ to his Kingdom, it is a Gift of us being made a ‘New-Creation’ in His likeness.

We are told to run the Race looking to our Lord and savior as our Author and  Finisher of our Faith….1 Corinthians 9:24
The Need for Self-Discipline ] Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.
1 Corinthians 9:23-25 

When Jesus lived on earth for 33 years, He lived a sinless life, He extended His Love and He healed many, but His mission here was to Die on the Cross at Calvary for our sin.  Born of a Virgin, Crucified, rose from death by a Triumphant Resurrection, seen by thousands, and Ascended into Heaven

His Promise:

He made us Co-HEIRS, Heirs to His Kingdom, and His Kingdom is described as …
Revelation 21:18-20 

18 The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. 19 The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald,20 the fifth onyx, the sixth ruby, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth turquoise, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. 21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass.

His Faithfulness:

[ Life Through the Spirit ] Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,  Romans 8:1-3 

Action:

Coming to our Lord:

1 Corinthians 9: (NIV) The Need for Self-Discipline

24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

Conclusion:

Jesus said… “I will never leave you nor forsake you”, but first we HAVE TO KNOW HIM, even though our Lord is omniscient with infinite awareness, He also said,  Ask, Seek and Knock, therefore A-S-K must be applied in a relationship with our Lord.

Prayer: Father in Heaven in Jesus our Redeemer we come knowing that Jesus is God in One of  Your divine Holy Trinity, Lord Jesus our sovereign eternal God in One of our Father, we give You our Praises and as You have said that You will return and we will see your as You are, and for those of us that have already been received by You Lord Jesus we thank You for that day when we shall be reunited in Your Holy presence with our Loved Ones; and be in a Sanctified Place full of Splendor with Your Holy Presence. Lord we thank you for this day and our Visitors. In Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, we pray and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore. Amen.

Tuesday December 3, 2019

Was Santa Claus created to mock the Lord? Chris Kringle or Happy old St. Nick cannot replace Jesus…

Neither Chris Kringle nor Ole St. Nick exist; Only Jesus is alive. He is the same yesterday today and tomorrow.

The ‘Happy Holiday” has been predominantly replace with the Traditional Merry Christmas. Praise God.

Christmas is coming, and so will Christ as He came for the Masses = ChristMAS

The old saying… ‘Keep Christ in Christmas’ this is good, but sort of incorrect, why? There would be no ChristMAS without Christ, so, He is the origin and Lord as Christ for the Masses.

Christmas is celebrated all over the world, such as:

 to say, “Merry Christmas” in Russian is “S rozhdyestvom Hristovym!”, which means “Congratulations on the birth of Christ!”.

In Japan: Christmas time is not a formal, nationally recognized holiday in Japan, the Japanese culture has adopted the season's traditions and spirit over time. Cities celebrate Christmas through festivals and special events, and citizens celebrate the season with sentiment, presents and, of course, food.

In China: In only about one percent of people are Christians, so most people only know a few things about Christmas.

This Christmas let us know the real meaning of Christ-Mass, Our Lord Jesus came to save Mass of mankind.  We are reflecting back on the little girl watching the Christmas parade and a float with Baby Jesus in a Nativity setting was passing, the little girl said… “and they have to bring Jesus into this” who should be blamed for this? Are Parents, Schools, and Society? The answer is a combination of all.

Advent is a season observed in many Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas as well as the return of Jesus at the second coming. 

Matthew 2:6 ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel.’” In Context | 

Matthew 25:32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. In Context

The above text will separate the believers (Born-Again), Praise the Lord that Jesus paid it all, and we have His Assurance…

Romans 8:1 [Full Chapter]

Free from Indwelling SinThere is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

What a glorious day that will be…

Revelation 7:17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

Words of Assurance:

Romans 8: 28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

God’s Everlasting Love

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

“For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 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.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus or redeemer we come, Lord Jesus as we come into your Holy presence, we acknowledge that you are seated on the Throne of Righteousness.

     Why do we have Christmas trees? Why do we decorate them?

There are many theories of how the Christmas tree was adopted. Here’s our take on why there are Christmas Tree.

Christ was Crucified on a wooden cross . so, the tree is symbolic of the Cross. The Adornment on the Tree which in earlier times would be Fruits and candles, this was to portray Christ as the Light of the World, the Gifts placed under the tree, this depicts the Priceless Gift of Salvation given by the Grace of God.

Christmas trees were considered a pagan tradition. Now Christmas trees are widely displayed even in some Jewish homes. All artificial trees are labelled with hat familiar tag…”made in China’, this is ironic as China being the most populous nation on earth, they too celebrate Christmas as a season without not knowing the reason.

The Real Reason for the Season:   Matthew 1: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which translated means, “God with us.”  (End of text)

This was told to Mary and then to Joseph, it was publicized, there were no CNN or BBC... The world then knew Jesus as the son of Joseph the carpenter.  The reason for His coming what to redeem us. 

Now one may ask why we needed His redemption.  As descendants from Adam, we all inherited the Sin that was committed in the Garden of Eden; God said ’Eat of the Fruit and you will surely die’ His description of death was a ‘Spiritual death’. Remember we were created in the likeness of God… God said ‘Let us’ create Man in our Likeness’ being in His likeness we never die, but there is a physical death but our Soul lives on… when God was referring to ‘Surely die’ He meant that our Soul would be separated from Him. 

Separation from God is described as being in a place where one is forever ‘dying’ but never dies, but being in a constant state of what is commonly known as ‘Hell’  Our God loved us so much that he sent His only Son Yeshua- Jesus to Redeem us at Calvary. This is the Gift, His Priceless Gift that we cannot purchase.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

John 3:16-17

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

Conclusion:

To appreciate the coming of our Lord Jesus we must understand that He came because God loves us, and He came not to Judge the World, and He came to Save us through His Sacrifice.

Hebrews 1:3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Philippians 1:6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus

Our Lord’s word of Assurance, we have Victory in Him….

1 John 4:4

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.

Prayer:

Father in heave in Jesus our Redeemer we come. Lord Jesus we acknowledge Your Sovereignty and in You Lord we have Victory because of Your Divine Sacrifice at Calvary. Lord we thank You for coming and to have Paid-It-All, and by Your Blood of Atonement we are Saved. Lord we are privileged to serve You and be in Your Holy Presence. Lord we seek Your blessings to our Visitors and grant Your Favors to each one that calls on Your Name Lord. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

********

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday: December 1, 2019

           Find solace today, experience the frequency of Worship and Praise, spend the day being restored…

December 1, 2019 is the beginning of Advent, remembering Christ’s Birth and looking to His return…

The Good News… Matthew 1: 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”[g] (which means “God with us”).

Preparing for Christ- ‘mas’

The season of Advent is represented by the four Sundays preceding Christmas Eve.

The Season of Advent declares the Birth of Christ… Emanuel, GOD with US.

He declared that He was at the day of Creation with God the Father…

John 17:5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began. In Context

As we draw near to Christmas the season of Advent… This is all about the Miracle of Christ, and Christ for the Masses as he came to redeem the masses. Therefore, CHRIST- ‘MAS’ represents the Visit of Christ the Messiah and the coming return of Christ the Redeemer and the Judge…

The difference in Relationship and Fellowship...

Relation is knowing Fellowship is walking with.   Relationship is a binding bond, fellowship is        

A walk that must be taken, and sometimes renewed.

If we choose to be with Him and He considers us to be a branch of His Vine, He can release exponent growth that will shoot like the most bountiful grape vineyard bearing fruits that many will attracted to, which is His fragrance to be tasted so  many may know Him.

Living for Christ is the ‘whole’ because in Him we have… John 6:25-35 New International Version (NIV)

Jesus the Bread of Life

25 When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?”

26 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs, I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. 27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”

EVENING:

You are chosen by The Lord Jesus by His Grace and His Father God will provide our needs when we ask in Jesus name…

John 15:16 Good News Translation (GNT)

16 You did not choose me; I chose you and appointed you to go and bear much fruit, the kind of fruit that endures. And so, the Father will give you whatever you ask of him in my name.

In the text above Jesus said… we did not choose Him, He chose you, me and all, and He has appointed you. Me and all to go and bear much fruit, and the kind of fruit that endures. 

What kind of fruit last forever” Fruit is considered perishable and in the ‘Fresh-market’ whatever we buy will only last a few days…? So, Jesus was telling us to bear much ‘Fruit’ meaning bring others to Him.  Of all the things created by our Lord, the Earth, Water, Animals, the Stars, the Lilies of the field, and the cattle on a thousand hills, nothing is considered more valuable than you. Me and everyone who He created in His Likeness, so today we thank our Lord for His Unconditional love for you, me and everyone… He (Jesus) not only loves us but He wants to ‘Reward’ us… and His Reward is gaining a lifetime with Him, and the Lifetime will be eternal.

The ‘key’ words in Jesus’ statement… ‘Whoever comes to Him’ will never go hungry, and ‘whoever believes in me’ will never be thirsty.

Now that we have seen the Faithfulness of our Lord Jesus, let us come to Him and Praise Him and thank Him for His Divine Providence.

We want to say that we should come to Jesus not just for what He will provide, but for His Unconditional love and His Divine Redemption, as He died once and conquered death by His Triumphant Resurrection, so come to Him, know Him, receive Him and He said all that call on His name shall be saved, and those He saved He made a Joint-Heir in His Kingdom.

Philippians 4:12

New King James Version (NKJV)

12 I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things, I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

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

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Redeemer we come Lord 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 Your Saving Grace and our Visitors, Lord bless us all as we give You our Praises and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

      Which team are you on? Be on the winning team… choose Christ as your Lord… 

Lean not on your own understanding, seek God’s Will, it’s always good

Two thirds of the Psalms were written by David. We know what David was best known for. David slew Goliath, and the event of David and Bathsheba; these two events made him famous.

But he should be more famous as he wrote most of the Psalms expressing his love and trust in God.

The 23rd Psalms ‘The Lord is my Shepherd’, this along with John 3: 16 and the beloved chorus...”Jesus loves me this I know’, All there are the revelation of God’s love for us.

John 3: 16 revealed the real reason why Jesus came… Because of what our fore-parent Adam and Eve did, as God said…

Genesis 2:17

but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” In Context |

God loved us so much, but being God, He could not die for us… So, He sent Jesus who was born of a virgin, Jesus was fully Man, but also as the Incarnated One in God the Father. So, Jesus died and paid the penalty for our sin. And through the Divine Crucifixion at Calvary, the Blood of Jesus provided the remission of our sins.  Though His Blood we were pardon; and by His Divine Resurrection Jesus rose triumphantly to a life-everlasting.

This Christmas when you give make it a true gift and not an intended ‘Exchange’ God wants a ‘cheerful giver, not just a somber ‘seeker’… So, cheer-up and know that you are called today to bring your ‘first-fruit’ to God as He is the head, the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, and His end is endless because He is Eternal.

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 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.

  • T

Since He (Jesus) is the Author and Finisher of our Faith when you seek Him first, therefore; we must know the following important factors for our daily living: 

Remember we cannot ‘test-drive’ being a Christian, you are either for Christ of against Him…

Conclusion: Philippians 4: 4-9   Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

His Promise: Haggai 2:19 (NASB)

19 Is the seed still in the barn? Even including the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate and the olive tree, it has not borne fruit. Yet from this day on I will bless you.’”

Prayer: Heavenly Father, in Jesus we come. Lord as we continue in faith reaching our Visitors let there be just One that will come to know You Lord and be counted among the Joint-Heirs in You Lord Jesus. Lord let Your messages be like ‘Wild-Fire’ spreading across the globe so that your prophecy will be fulfilled as we look to that day Lord when we shall see You as You are. Lord be with our Visitors and us all as we seek Your favors and let what You provide be used for Your Glory. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

      Jesus ascended without a spaceship. He will return again, seen from the east to the west.

   While we wait upon Jesus’ return, are we preparing a welcome ceremony?

Jesus’ return will be His Third and final Visit. How could this be? Because we have been thought that when Jesus returns it will be His 2nd time. Because He was born in Bethlehem 2018 years ago. This is true.  But, He was here at the beginning when the earth was created. Therefore, this will be His third and final visit.

The coming of the Lord…

TEXT: 1 Peter 1:7

New King James Version (NKJV)

that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,

Commentary: There are a lot of books and television specials on the subject of Heaven… With all the publication and discussion regarding heaven, yet there remain a lot of unknown about the future and even the past.  Looking back at Moses as he led his people through the wilderness for 40 years, yet he did not get to cross to the Promised Land. But we see Moses and Elijah appearing to Jesus on the day of the Transfiguration.

Moses was on the top of mount Pisgah looking across to Canaan around1406 BC, Deuteronomy 3:27

27 Go up to the top of Pisgah, and lift your eyes toward the west, the north, the south, and the east; behold it with your eyes, for you shall not cross over this Jordan.

Moses was forbidden to cross the Jordan to the Promised-Land. On the other hand, we see the event of the transfiguration that occurred around 31 AD, Matthew 17: 2-4

Jesus Transfigured on the Mount

17 Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him.

Therefore, Moses was not left in the wilderness nor did he cross over to Canaan. But He did descend with Elijah to be present at the Transfiguration.   The Bible stated that Elijah ascended to heaven on a ‘Flaming-Chariot’. So, when the Lord said to Moses he should not go to the Promised Land, God had a better plan for him, he was taken directly to heaven. 

The apostle Paul when he spoke of; 2 Corinthians 12:2 NKJV)

I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a one was caught up to the third heaven. Is this statement of Paul’s disclosure of his journey to have met Christ?

God’s Army…

You’re in the Army now… Moses, Elijah, Elisha, Paul and many others were the nucleus of God’s army. We need an army to counter the evil one. Let no one tell you that we can take it easy, why? Because the devil is on the prowl seeking to devour those that he can. This not a myth, the need to be armed with the Word and be suited in the armor of our Lord to thwart the fiery arrows of the evil one is a constant battle. So, open your heart and invite the Lord Jesus in and His Holy Spirit will protect you and keep you.

In preparation, we should always be ready.

Who do you represent? Knowing Christ is a privilege and know this, many that sees you will recognize the Peace that we have in Jesus. Never forget… it is by His Grace and God’s Grace through Jesus our Redeemer give us something so special it is sought after by many. What is this special thing? The Divine blessing of the Holy Spirit. So, let the Holly Spirit be abiding in you through His Grace and by your actions, your speech, your faith and never compromise, as in Christ we have His victory that is sought after. Therefore, share the Joy of knowing Christ.

Be aware that you are set apart, never desire to be like anyone else. You are unique, you are one of a kind and God loves you.

These all-powerful components in these six pieces or armaments are:

  1. TRUTH:
  2. RIGHTEOUSNESS
  3. FAITH
  4. SALVATION
  5. PEACE
  6. THE HOLY SPIRIT

And the FUEL that drives the above forming the FORCES of our protection and the power to cut-down evil and to provide a protective shield powered by our FAITH and the deployment of the SWORD with the DIVINE POWER of HIS WORD, you have just read the description of what our Lord has provided to each of us that makes us a Super-Being.

Imagine with these four pieces of HIS Weapon, we are more shielded from any attack, and be invisible to the enemy,  to fire the most advanced weapon which is a HIS WORD, a flameless Divine Laser that is Super-Natural, powered by HIS HOLY SPIRIT.


Prayer:          Father in Heaven, in Jesus our Redeemer we come in Your Holy presence. We lift you up before all. Thank You Lord for opening the doors to bring hundreds of people to visit this site each day; Lord we are privileged to be Your messenger and we thank you for your blessings. Lord we thank You for our Visitors.  We pray in Your Holy name and give You the Glory and the Power now and forevermore… Amen.

Thursday: November 28th, 2019

     It’s Thanksgiving Day, give thanks to the Lord and remember those in need….

Be Still and Know that I am GOD….


He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:9-11 (in Context) Psalm 46 (Whole Chapter) 

Commentary:

Today being Thanksgiving Day that many have re-named ‘Turkey-Day’ we pity those that have adopted this inappropriate designation…  In life one would prefer to be known to be Soaring with Eagles versus being with a flock of low-flying Turkeys…  There are many connotations of ‘Turkey’, The Bird itself reputedly reached England by 1524 – 1530. By 1575 turkey was becoming the usual main course for Christmas dinners.  By 1927 the show business slang was well known as “A Turkey” meaning an ’Inferior show’ or a failed show.  This was synonymously linked to the bird’s reputation of stupidity.  In World War II the use of ‘Turkey-Shoot’ meant something ‘easy’.

One thing for sure, live is not a ‘Turkey-Shoot’, today society is full of challenges and nothing is for sure… except what the Bible said… 

1 John 3:2-3 New International Version (NIV)

Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.

Proverbs 3:9-10

New International Version (NIV)

Honor the Lord with your wealth,
    with the firstfruits of all your crops;
10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
    and your vats will brim over with new wine.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

Psalm 34:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
    and he delivers them.

Taste and see that the Lord is good;
    blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his holy people,
    for those who fear him lack nothing.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Our Lord said…

Matthew 11:28-29 New International Version (NIV)

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Philippians 4:6

New International Version (NIV)

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Conclusion:

On this Thanksgiving Day, let us Stop and Know that He is God… Let us Honor our Lord by:

Proverbs 3:9-10

New International Version (NIV)

Honor the Lord with your wealth,
    with the firstfruits of all your crops;
10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
    and your vats will brim over with new wine.

Let us Thank our Lord for Victory…

1 John 5:3-4

New International Version (NIV)

In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.

Acts 4:20 New King James Version (NKJV)

20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”

Acts 16:31

New King James Version (NKJV)

31 So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”

Psalm 95:1-2 New International Version (NIV)

Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
    let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before him with thanksgiving
    and extol him with music and song.

Prayer:

1 John 5:14-15

New International Version (NIV)

14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

Prayer:

Lord Jesus our Sovereign Eternal God in One of our Father, in the Holy Trinity, Lord we come this day of Thanksgiving to Praise You knowing that You have ‘Paid-It-All’ for our Redemption. Lord thank You for coming and through Your Sacrifice we are Saved by Your Grace. In You Lord Jesus we are saved and in You we have Victory.   Bless us Lord and our Visitors as we come and gather in Your name, we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

   Is AI (Artificial intelligence) a good thing? Is it a replacement to our workforce? Yes and No.

   Artificial-Intelligence is it a threat or a boost to humanity?

Artificial Intelligence is old technology, compared to the ‘Burning-Bush’ it is primitive…

Exodus 3:  And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So, he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed. Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.”

So when the Lord saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!”

And he said, “Here I am.”

Then He said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.” Moreover He said, “I am the God of your father—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God.

The Burning Bush was not an Artificial Intelligence image, but it was the Holy Spirit, and today we could say this was a Holy-Hologram.  The mystery of God is unknown, as we see, the instruction to Moses to remove his sandals because he was on Holy-Grounds.  One would wonder is the removal of the sandals was to ‘Ground’ Moses from the electricity-force surrounding the Holy-Hologram.  Yes, this could be as God’s Holy Spirit is an awesome power, as seen in the ARK of the Covenant.

 According to a MIT professor…47 percent of total US employment is in the high-risk category, meaning that associated occupations are potentially automatable over some unspecified number of years, perhaps a decade or two," they predict in the report The Future of Employment.

During the coming decades, they forecast two "waves of computerization" during which different categories of jobs will be washed away, with no field of employment left untouched.

But the future is not all doom and gloom, as there will be need for some manual-labor, and positions that require Inter-Personal interaction.

The coming years could be a form of chaos for many, or it could be utopia. 

Commentary: Our Lord let it rain on both the just and the unjust…. But in our life, we cannot have Faith without knowing His Holiness, His Graciousness, His Unconditional love and above all His Divine Redemption.  He sends His Showers of Blessings…

Matthew 5:45

That you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

Mark 12:26

But concerning the dead, that they rise, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the burning bush passage, how God spoke to him, saying, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? Mark 12:25-27 

Matthew 8:11

And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 8:10-12 (in Context) Matthew 8 (Whole Chapter)

1 John 2:1

2 My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

EVENING:

The additional Text today: 2 Timothy 3:2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,

 

These traits are the product of our competitive society. We can see this in sports, celebrities, and the so called ‘Rich & Famous’ but the Scriptures said… Proverbs 13:10 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 By pride comes nothing but strife,
But with the well-advised is wisdom.

And:

Proverbs 16:18 New King James Version (NKJV)

18 Pride goes before destruction,
And a haughty spirit before a fall.

Our hybrid-techno narrative of the Holy-Hologram is made to show that the Power of the Almighty is not linked to the year 0033, an era when donkeys and horse drawn chariots were the mode of transportation. when Jesus walked this planet, He was all powerful, but He lived among those in the year 0033.  But His Power far exceeds our imagination as seen by His Ascension into the heavens.

Praise the Lord for His Mercies and as we gather today, let us be humble yet we can boast about the Power of the Lord, and His saving Grace through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Prayers:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord Jesus as we go through this week with new challenges, strengthen us by Your Holy Spirit. Lord Your blessing abounds by providing the Showers of Blessings upon us all. Lord we thank You for Your Covenant of Grace; and that the Good News of Your Salvation telling of Your Priceless Gift is still available as we bring this to many in Your Name Lord. Bless our Visitors coming to this site and let Your messages of Truth bear fruit for Your Glory Lord. Lord we are privileged to serve You, we thank you for the opportunity, and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Hunger crosses all ethnic and countries, there’s homeless even in Switzerland, USA, Japan etc.

Consumers in China spent $118.39 billion on luxury goods in 2017, far more than consumers in the US, Europe, Japan or the rest of the world.

In 2018 Statistic shows the estimated value of the leading personal luxury goods markets worldwide in 2018, by country. That year, the United States was the top ranked personal luxury goods market with an estimated market value of about 71 billion euros. 

Today, the UK ranks No1, and India ranks No.5.

In the UK the Homeless population is:320,000 = 1 in every 200 people

In India the Homeless population is: 1.77 million of 0.15% of the total population.

In China the homeless = 2,579,000 or: 0.18%

The above is not intended to debase the countries, but while they lead the world in buying luxury goods, a significant portion of their ‘Neighbors’ are going hungry.

In the USA, the growth of the homeless population is from the inflow of ‘illegal’ migrants, but this is all mentioned in the Bible.

2 Timothy 3 [Full Chapter]

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, ..

Daniel 12:4

But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Thanksgiving is a time of feasting and Christmas is a time of gifting. Our highlights of the plight on the many homeless is to lets us remember the word of the Lord…”Love your neighbors as yourself”. Pause and say a prayer for the less fortunate, regardless of their circumstances, give and pray.

Today I will introduce a Friend, and my introduction will be based on His life, His care for me and His unmatched graciousness.

This friend visited earth 2,019 years ago, He came under a very unorthodox auspice of being born without an earthly father, His mother was a Virgin, and many wanted to make Him a king.

As we draw near to Christmas the season of Advent… This is all about the Miracle of Christ, and Christ for the Masses as he came to redeem the masses. Therefore, CHRIST- ‘MAS’ represents the Visit of Christ the Messiah and the coming return of Christ the Redeemer and the Judge…

Preparing for Christ- ‘mas’

The season of Advent is represented by the four Sundays preceding Christmas Eve.

The Season of Advent declares the Birth of Christ… Emanuel, GOD with US.

During His 33 years, He did many things that are still mind-baffling, He also made an astounding claim… He said “I Am not of this world”.  He even claimed that before Abraham was He was…

John 8:58  “Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!” In Context | Full Chapter | 

He declared that He was at the day of Creation with God the Father…

John 17:5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began. In Context 

Jesus in no new kid on the block… He was declared on the first day, when God said…

Genesis 1:3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 

John 8: 58 “Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”

John 1:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

The Word Became Flesh

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

And Jesus is Sovereign… 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. In Context | Full Chapter 

What a privilege our Lord Jesus has given us all…  Keep looking up, as the Bible said:  This same Jesus will return. Acts 1:11

“Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”

Preparing for Christ- ‘mas’

He is Christ for the Masses.

ON BEING THANKFUL

Lord, thank you for this sink of dirty dishes; we have plenty of food to eat. Thank you for this pile of dirty laundry; we have plenty of clothes to wear.

AND: I would like to thank you Lord for those unmade beds, they were so warm and comfortable last night, I know many have no bed.

My thanks to you, Lord, for bathroom, complete with all the splattered, messy, soggy, grimy towels and dirty lavatory, they are so convenient.

Thank you for this finger-smudged refrigerator that needs defrosting so badly, IT has

served us faithfully for many years, it is full of cold drinks and enough leftovers for two or three meals.

Thank you. Lord, for this oven that absolutely must be clean today, it has baked so many things over the years/

The whole family is grateful for that tall grass that needs mowing, the lawn that needs raking, we will enjoy the yard.

Thank you. Lord, even far that slamming screen door; my kids are healthy and able to run and play.

Lord, the presence of all these awaiting me says You have richly blessed my family', I shall do them cheerfully, and I shall do them gratefully.

Even I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings, thank you, Lord; that I can hear. 

Many are deaf. Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible.

Thank you. Lord that I can see. There are many who are blind.

Even though the routine of my Job is often monotonous, thank you. Lord, for the opportunity to work, There are many, who have no job.

Even I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day and

wish my circumstances were not so modest, thank you. Lord, for life…  Anon.

The above down to earth ‘Thank You Lord’ was found in a basket at a little church in a small town of Georgia, USA

As we look to Thanksgiving Day and the season of Advent, we often time are searching for ‘better times’; a nicer car, a better job, or ?  while we dream the American Dream, let us remember the homeless population as mentioned a few days ago.

So, we focus in the scripture of…

1 Thessalonians 5:18

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

Coming to the Lord: These are the saying of Jesus…

  1. Mark 10:15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”

Good News -His Faithfulness:  Come to Christ today, acknowledge Him as His Word stated…

Acts 2:21 And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved.’ In Context | Full Chapter |

Prayer: Father in Heaven, in Jesus our Lord and savior we come.  Lord as we gather, we are assured that You Lord Jesus is in our midst and You are our Mediator to the Father.  Lord we thank You for Your Divine Grace and we thank you Lord for the privilege of serving You and for our many Visitors. Lord bless each of our Visitors as we Praise You and give You the Glory, we thank You Lord that whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved. Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

       A day of Thanksgiving and Praises, do what Jesus said…’do this in remembrance of me’

     The best is yet to come! Be a apart of God’s plan for you it is all good …

 

How would you like to have on your tombstone?” The best is yet to come”, Frank Sinatra does. Apparently, he knew where he was going.

A picture containing nature, cloud Description automatically generatedThe Holy Bible mentioned Heaven 622 times in the NIV, 692 times in the NKJV, it also mentioned ‘Saved’ 106 times in the New King James.

I had an experience of visiting a friend who was also my banker, at the time of my visit he had stage four advanced colon-cancer with a grave diagnosis that would not end well.  After sitting down, he said, you know I have been attending church and in my current position I do not know where I am going.  I had brought him a new Bible and a list of printed scripture verses,

We read the select verses, and he got up and said, “I am amazed over the years I have been your banker and neighbor, but I never thought you would bring me the answer, I am now ready to face the Lord as I now know where I am going to be”. He went home to be with the Lord a few weeks later, Praise God…

The message of Salvation is as Jesus said…

Romans 8:1 [Full Chapter]

Free from Indwelling Sin ] There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

God’s Everlasting Love

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 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.

Be bold in presenting the WORD…

And as spoken by our Savior Jesus, He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Be Bold in presenting our Sovereign Lord and Savior Jesus who is God in One of the Father…

Acts 4:29-31 (NKJV)

29 Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”

31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.

Today… Find the beauty of the Lord, it surrounds us, look at the forest, ignore the potholes, take a deep-breath…

Driving along the streets, avenues of most cities after a few heavy downpours of rain, there are potholes, but look around and see the green shrubs and the green lawns, and while enjoying the beauty take a deep breath of fresh-air.

Rain provides multiple benefits…  Rainwater is better for your plants and soil. Rainwater is highly oxygenated, free of the salts, inorganic ions, and fluoride compounds contained in tap water that accumulate in the soil over time and potentially harm plant roots. Use of rainwater in your garden dilutes this impact, making plants more drought-tolerant, healthy, and strong.

Negative ions from Rain is also beneficial to our bodies, it is an anti-depressant, it is good for your brain and it can help you sleep.  Spending too much time indoors will deprive you of negative ions.  Negative ions provide that feeling of ‘a Breath of fresh-air’ after a down-pour of rain.

Colossians 2:9-10

For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, 10 and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority.

Prayer: Father in Heaven, in Jesus we come, Lord today our dependence is on You Lord, and Your empowerment reaches far above the powers of mankind.  Let us comprehend the real meaning of being made ‘Joint-Heirs’ in You Lord as You have endowed us with Riches far greater than the kingdoms of this world as You said not even Solomon had the beauty of Your Grace. Lord we thank You for our Visitors and asks Your blessings on each one.   Lord We Praise You and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen

                 Ending the week with a look back of achievements or; “I could have done that”

We cannot turn back time, nor can we recall what we uttered… So, plan your move, put you brain into gear before making a statement that may be regretful.

It is better to have the ability of discernment and to act in a diplomatic way, rather than condemnation; one should make suggestions in a persuasive tone. In most instant this approach will build trust and convey Kindness and reinforcement of integrity. The act of a critical remark will damage the goodwill gained, and the criticism will drive a wedge between the parties.

Damage control is a widely applied effort to mend relationships, it takes a lot of efforts to repair a fractured relationship. So, weigh the consequences before making an irrational action.  Sometimes a criticism is warranted as the other side may have breached the understanding… but, out of desperation the breach may have been done to stimulate or restart the relationship. Such actions may do more damage and widening the gap. So, even when a criticism is warranted, let the comment be in the form of a suggestion and remind each other of the goodwill forged and not to throw that away, but suggest that both sides try and build on it, with a focus of achieving a mutually beneficial future.

So, ask the Lord for Discernment and to give you patience and wisdom.

Deuteronomy 32:28 They are a nation without sense, there is no ...

..... They are a nation without sense, there is no discernment in them. ...

1 Kings 3:11 So God said to him, "Since you have asked for this ...

... Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourself, nor

have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment in administering ...

God Grants Wisdom, Riches, and Honor (Granted to Solomon)

10. Now it pleased the Lord that Solomon had made this request. 11. So God said to him, “Since you have asked for this instead of requesting long life or wealth for yourself or death for your enemies—but you have asked for discernment to administer justice— 12. behold, I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be.

13. Moreover, I will give you what you did not request—both riches and honor—so that during all your days no man in any kingdom will be your equal. 14. So, if you walk in My ways and keep My statutes and commandments, just as your father David did, I will prolong your days.”

Philippians 1:9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound ...

... And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and

more, with knowledge and all discernment ...

Be aware…  We are given God’s providence to help others… so, make the right choice, be a good steward.

The Providence of our Faith in Jesus…

Matthew 6: 25-34 NIV

Do Not Worry

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

Matthew 6:33

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

His Faithfulness:

The Good News for today is:

“Do not be terrified. … The Lord your God, who goes before you, He will fight for you” (Deuteronomy 1:29-31).

“If God is for us, who can be against us? … In all these things we are more than

                                                                                                               

We are of Him… 1 John 4:4 (NKJV)

4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come.  Lord today as we affirmed Your Sovereignty knowing that Your Goodness and Mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives not just here but forever in Your Kingdom to come. Lord thank You for the privilege of bring this message as Your Good News and we thank You Lord for our many Visitors. Lord bless each of our Visitors as we pray for those facing loneliness during this season and for those in Your mission-field, Lord equip them and lead us all to Your Green-Pasture. We give You our Praise Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

           What’s for dinner? Thank the Lord you know, but 815 million will go to bed hungry…

As America prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving with millions of families gathered around the traditional dinners, it is necessary for each of

us to pause and do their part in reaching into their pocketbooks; and make a contribution to the annual Thanksgiving fund of the local Shelters and Caring places.

For just $52.50 it will sponsor five tables that serve 25 people a Thanksgiving Dinner. For many this meal will be their only real dinner.

You may ask why are there ‘Homeless’ individuals? Homelessness is no respecter of person.  We met a former head of a baking company that is among the top brands of baked goods across the USA, he went homeless due to an addiction and in his despair found the Rescue Mission, and found the Lord, he was regenerated and upon fully recovery he stayed as a staff member leading the men’s division, This person attended our Lions Club© luncheon as a guest speaker, his testimony inspired us all.  Here we see God’s Divine way of placing us in His mission-field.

The Cross is the Way to Restoration, and Jesus Christ is the Catalyst. Jesus infused it with His Grace…

There’s a life cycle to everything, everyone and all come to the end. That beautiful blooming rose will fade, the bountiful vineyards with grapes will go dormant and our life will also.

So, for those that say…” I do not need God’s restoration”, is like that passenger on the Titanic ignoring the siren of warning. Or more like trying to cross the railroad facing an oncoming locomotive.

Each Springtime the rose bushes will regenerate into a blooming bush full of roses and sweet-smelling fragrance. Our lives are like a rose bush, we can spread the joy and fragrance of the Lord.

Corinthians 2:14

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

2 Corinthians 2:15

For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.

The Cross as described by Jesus…

1 Corinthians 1:18 [Full Chapter]

Christ the Power and Wisdom of God] For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

Luke 9:23

Take Up the Cross and Follow Him] Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.

The Bible has presented conclusive history and cross references of Jesus who was the ‘Light’ on the First Day…  Now we in our finite thinking will ask … How could Jesus provide the Light that God said, God the Creator said…” Let there be Light” and there was Light, and God saw it and said it was Good.  If we must know the scientific answer to this ‘Divine-Radiance’ then we will never see the Light that will shines in His Kingdom, as it also said that there will be no night as our Lord will be the Light.  And anyone not having these scientific answers may also be looking for the answer to His Resurrection, as He rose from the dead.  If anyone wants to have these answers and continue as a Scoffer, then he should worry, because then this person would not believe that there is a life after our physical body dies. But God said we are created in His Likeness and therefore we shall also live forever, as our Soul lives on.  

Not that this is the question of living beyond this life is a concern of the person that needs the ‘Proof’. But this person can experience the realms of having that assurance of been Redeemed and be saved by His Blood, this is accomplished by having FAITH in Jesus and acknowledging that he is our Redeemer and through His Blood of Atonement, we are Redeemed and Sealed as a Down-Payment towards His Redemption; (Meaning we are no longer a Pawn item to this world) and are now Joint Heir to His Kingdom.

 You can come to Jesus right now, where you are by accepting His Invitation, by Repenting and by Faith receive Jesus Christ into your heart and life and follow Him in obedience as your Lord and Savior: by Praying this Prayer of Commitment:

Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior, in Your Name I pray, Amen.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come to Praise You Father. Lord Jesus we acknowledge that you are interceding for us, and as our Sovereign Eternal God in One of the Father we seek You Lord and seek a close walk with You. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Peace and lead us to Green Pastures and Still Waters in this life as the challenges are plenty. Lord we look to that day when we shall see You as You are, and we thank you for the privilege of serving in Your name for Your Glory. Lord we Pray in Your Name, and to you Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

     Who is important to you? who is preeminent? What do you treasure the most?

A life of wealth without health is useless, and so is a life without Peace…

Finding a place of peace and tranquility… it’s where you are, how? Read more


PEACE….

  PEACE; A state of tranquility that we all desire.  How can we have peace? 

No ‘Do-Over’…

Going without Jesus is like jumping out of an airplane with a backpack and not a parachute. (A humorous story) … A lawyer, a doctor, a little boy and a priest were all out on a small plane for an afternoon flight when the plane developed engine trouble. In spite of the pilot's best efforts, the plane started to go down. Finally, the pilot yelled out to his passengers that they'd better jump, he grabbed a parachute and bail out. Unfortunately, that left only three remaining parachutes. Grabbing one, the doctor said, "I am a doctor and I save lives, so I must live," and he jumped.

The lawyer then grabbed a parachute and said, "I am the smartest man in the world. I definitely deserve to live." Then he jumped. Looking at the young boy, the priest said, "Son, I have been fortunate to have lived a long and full life. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute and live in peace."
Handing the parachute back to the priest, the little boy said, "Don't worry, Father. The smartest man in the world just jumped out with my backpack!"

TEXT:  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 

He is Preeminent – Abide in Him.

Hearing the Good News and rejecting God’s invitation will turn into ‘Bad’ News.  Why? To deny Christ, He said if you do, He will deny you before His Father.  One may say why do I need Christ? God is a merciful God, and He said He loves me… To deny Christ you are making Jesus to be a Liar, because He said no one comes to the Father unless through Him.

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, give us His Blessings, and by His Grace we can cope with all aspects of life’s responsibilities.

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundant above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.  from Ephesians 3:20 NKJV  When we serve others by spreading the Good News, we are sprinkling the Fragrance of our Lord Jesus, and we also get the sweet smelling fragrance on ourselves… meaning that we are privileged to be a Vessel bearing the sweet smell of our Lord and Redeemer, and while we spread His Fragrance our Lord also blesses us with His Grace…2 Corinthians 2:15  New King James Version (NKJV) 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.

His Promise:

Ephesians 2: 4-10 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith —and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Jew and Gentile Reconciled Through Christ

 Only from our Lord can we have an Everlasting Peace. Real Peace by anyone on earth is still limited to a finite time.  So, we call this a ‘Superficial’ Peace as it can only last till be facing that fateful day; but, should we have FAITH in our Lord and accept His Covenant of His Salvation, then we will have Peace here and Peace in a place of Splendor, which will be an Infinite everlasting Peace & Joy, fully sanctified in the presence of our Lord Jesus. What a privilege we have in Him, as Jesus is the same Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow and in Faith we can trust HIM.

Conclusion:

Heaven is a place of Incomprehensible beauty and peace, let us give thanks in Faith to our Lord Jesus that Paid It All

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come…Lord Jesus we thank You for the Covenant of Your promise that in Your Father’s Kingdom there are many mansions, and where You are, we will be. Lord, today let Your Holy Spirit be with our Visitors and us all as we pray in Your Holy Name. Lord Jesus our Supreme Eternal God to You Lord is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

            God said of David… he is a man of my own heart, why? Tell God you are available…

writing about the prayers of a fervent person, we must write that God also answered prayers of sinners, and the example of: The thief on the cross, the Tax Collector, David’s confession and repentance, and it is the most encouraging words when God said this… “ David was a man of  His Own heart”. This means there’s Hope for us all.

The statement of being “Highly Favored” is not a boastful statement, but a factual statement.

Because we are called…

2 Timothy 1:9
Who hath saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

      In the presence of the Almighty… be prepared, ready or not, He is present.

The countdown to Christmas began…  today it’s 35 days to Christmas.

Time is fleeting-by, but messing with your ‘Body-clock’ is dangerous…

MESSING WITH YOUR body’s clock is dangerous business, in fact it could make you sick – or worse.

The inner timekeeper dubbed the “circadian clock”, governs the day-night cycle that guides sleep and eating patterns, hormones and even body temperature.

Imagine… identified genes that regulate the clock, and the mechanism by which light can synchronize it.

Yet humans have a long history of overriding the circadian-driven need for sleep, Russell Foster, a professor of circadian neuroscience at Oxford University told AFP – the most obvious example being night work.

Such tinkering with Mother Nature can have serious consequences ranging from impulsive behavior to life-threatening conditions such as obesity and cancer, the experts say.

Just look at the poor health records of shift workers such as nurses or factory laborer.

The World Health Organization has already raised the red flag, with a 2007 report noting that “circadian disruption” is “probably carcinogenic” – which means cancer-causing.

The trouble is that the human body never really adapts to operating outside the normal cycle of working by day and sleeping at night.

Like everyone else, shift workers’ biological clocks are set by the rising and setting of the Sun – not their work schedule.

“There is no medicine in the world that allows you to… speed up or slow down your body clock,” said Claude Gronfier, a neurobiologist at France’s Inserm research institute.

An ‘exciting stage’ 

When workers force themselves to stay awake, it triggers the release of stress hormones such as cortisol – the same one that rushes into your blood in a life-or-death situation.

The chemicals may keep you on your feet, but they are a bargain with the devil.

For example, cortisol works to suppress the immune system and in the long run can make you more susceptible to a range of illnesses, including cancer.

Such a lifestyle also opens one up to eating outside of normal times, when the body’s metabolism might be lower, and the calories are more likely to be converted into fat instead of being burnt up.

“You’re raising your heart rate, raising your blood pressure and insulin levels at a time that you would not ordinarily do that,” (Excerpt from AFP)

So, while time is fleeting-by, use it well, get more sleep. Do not eat outside of normal times, eat more leafy green vegetable, fish, Blue berries, and exercise. Reduce the calories and do not let them turn into fat.

Romans 11:33-36 (NKJV)

33 Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!

34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has become His counselor?”
35 “Or who has first given to Him
And it shall be repaid to him?”

36 For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.

Jesus said…

No one comes to the Father without Him…. So, when we pray, He is in our Midst. There are no One to One Prayers, all prayers are made to God the Father in the Trinity.  Jesus is ‘One’ with the Father as God in the Trinity.  Jesus is our Triune God of Father Son and Holy Spirit.

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.

            who was in charge when Rome fell? For sure God was left out, so, Rome burnt…

In September 476 AD, the last Roman emperor of the west, Romulus Augustulus, was deposed by a Germanic prince called Odovacar, who had won control of the remnants of the Roman army of Italy. He then sent the western imperial regalia to Constantinople.

 The fall was due to the fabric of the Roman citizen. If one accepts the idea that the cause of the fall was due, in part, to the possible moral decay of the city.

Jesus said… “A house divided against itself cannot stand “

Many nations are undergoing the division, its more than politics, it is greed, it is by deceit and deception, and those who are imposing the division will also suffer the consequences of a fallen society...

As the bickering, strive and turmoil spill-over in many parts of the world, the officials needs to stop and know that He is God.

Psalm 46:10 He says, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be ...

... Stop your fighting--and know that I am God, exalted among the nations, exalted on the earth." ...

2 Timothy 1:7 For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid ...

... For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. ...

Commentary:

As scientists continue their research the recent discovery of quantum vibrations in microtubules inside brain neuron may be what Jesus referred to as a ‘Grain of Mustard’ Seed…  Quantum-Physics is still a mystery, and this is the utopia that scientists are trying to achieve, the ability to travel at the speed of light is what man would like to achieve. Yet God has already made this provision, as Jesus ‘Ascended’ and as we said in a previous posting thousands of believers are performing this feat daily as they too ‘Ascended’ to the presence of the Lord.

TEXT: Ephesians 1: 3-12 Redemption in Christ

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence,having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, 10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both[a] which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. 11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, 12 that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.

Coming to the Lord:

Come to the Lord while there is time, as He said now in the time of Salvation… Remember you cannot drive your car without insurance. Protecting your vehicle and yourself by insurance is mandatory, but there is a greater need to have the ultimate assurance… The Priceless Gift of the Grace and Salvation from Jesus our Redeemer is your ‘Umbrella-Assurance’ and Jesus said come unto me…

Good News -His Faithfulness:

For it is by Grace we are saved…. Ephesians 2:8-9 New 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.

His Divine Providence

Job 10:12 NIV
You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit):

His Saving Grace:

2 Timothy 1:9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.

We can come to the Throne of Righteousness in Prayer knowing that our High Priest our Redeemer Jesus Christ intercedes for us and by His Grace we are Saved.

Prayer… Lord let me be humble and by brotherly love not pre-judge anyone. Today Lord instill in me the presence of Your Holy Spirit and capture my ways, my thoughts, my all and let me shine as a beacon for You.  leading others to You my Lord, as You said let it be done on Earth as it is in Heaven therefore; Lord grant our audience that seek You Lord; safety and as You said Lord... ”You will never leave us nor forsake us”. Bless our Visitors as we go in faith. To You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore, in Your Holy name Lord Jesus we pray… Amen.

            In Politics... lying and cheating appear to be the cornerstone of politicians.

:  The ulterior motives of politicians, versus the TRUTH of the Gospel…

The plan of mankind…’Food as a Weapon’.  This is the ultimate delusion of politicians.

The Plan of God… An Abundant Life and He provided a place where there will be a ‘more’ Abundant Life.

The ‘New-World Order’ is another form of ‘Let us build a Tower’ like the Tower of Babel…

Genesis 11 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Tower of Babel

11 Now the whole earth had one language and one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”

But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city. Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.

Today more than ever people are being displaced because of wars, civil unrest, terrorism and uncertainty of the future.  But we want to express to our readers that nothing is New…  Mass-Migration existed in Europe, India, Middle-East, Africa by the Transatlantic Slave Trade, and today we have the atrocities of war in Syria, Africa, Middle-East displacing millions. 

The Bible made referenced to this… Daniel 12:3-5 (NKJV)

Those who are wise shall shine
Like the brightness of the firmament,
And those who turn many to righteousness
Like the stars forever and ever.

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”

Then I, Daniel, looked; and there stood two others, one on this riverbank and the other on that riverbank.

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 every one according to his work.

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.

Ephesians 2:8-9 (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.

The Reward is the Lord Himself, as He shall dwell among His people.

Revelation 21:3

And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God.

His Promise:

1 Corinthians 3:16-23  (NKJV)

16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.

His Faithfulness:

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.

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

New American Standard Bible (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.

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 now no 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.

Holiness is solely by the Holiness of the Lord. So, He said… “Be Holy because I am Holy” it is by Him.

“Be holy, because I am holy.” This declaration by God, simply said, we can only be Holy by His Righteousness, as it is by the Blood of Christ that we have remission of sins, and I believe this also means that through Jesus His Redemption and His Grace makes us eligible to be Holy in Him. Simply put, we cannot be Holy without Christ.

Are we journeying through here as a ‘Sojourner”? or are we stopping off here forever? When Jesus said He is not of this World, and that He was going to prepare a Place for you, but He also said..”IF” HE went, He most certainly did, but his statement was saying IF you deserve one of His mansion, He would return for you. So, make sure we are in His Lambs book of Life to be one of the Heirs to His Kingdom. We do not go to Heaven  by default, it is only as He said… be Born again.

John 3: 3. Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.”

Do this…  Be sure no one will be left behind… show them the way…

How many times have you averted what seemed to be a disaster, or even death? Many of us may be able to recall such an experience.  If you can, be sure to realize that God’s hand was upon you, and you were left here for the reason of; telling others of God’s mercies.

So, today be sure that no one will be left behind… When you know that, ‘The Best is yet to come’ which means all that we see, and experience are temporary, but beyond this there is a permanent place far greater and filled with God’s Splendor.

if you woke up in one of the world’s five-diamond resort, surrounded by beauty, and am able to order the most sumptuous brunch, what would you call this? Heaven, or a very expensive place that the bill at checkout will be enormous.  Yes, you can do this today, but be prepared to pay a hefty bill at checkout.

So, what is considered God’s ‘Splendor’ just think, as said…

Isaiah 55 [Full Chapter]An Invitation to Abundant Life]

“Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price. Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance. Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you— The sure mercies of David…

Note there’s no ‘Checkout’ and no Bill to be paid. Also, this abundance is ‘everlasting’ and assured by God’s Covenant with you.

Thank the Lord for His mercies, His Divine Providence and His Unconditional Love.

Memory Jogger: If God could use Rahab the prostitute, who protected the spies that Joshua sent, He can use you and He sees what’s inside our hearts. As we look at the Grace and Mercies of the Lord, we are overwhelmed knowing that the Lineage of Christ consisted of ordinary people, and also Saul’s Damascus Road experience as Jesus chose him (Paul) to be a messenger of the Gospel to us all. Above all, Jesus is the Son of God, and He is One in the Father.

Prayer: Lord Jesus we praise you and thank You for Your Love and Your Divine Redemption… Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Divine Providence as we pray the Doxology that all is from You Lord, and all is by You and all it committed to you for Your Glory. We pray in the Name of the Father, You our Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit knowing that You Lord Jesus our Redeemer Lives.  To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

The Prayer of the righteous availed much… but the prayer of sinners will also be answered.

While we see the request of the thief on the cross at Calvary, as he said…” Lord remember me when you come into Your Kingdom”

Luke 23:42 Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into Your Kingdom...

Jesus replied… 43And Jesus said to him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.”

The Lord said this of David…

Acts 13:22 After removing Saul, he made David their king. God ...

... God testified concerning him: 'I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.' 

Luke 18:11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: 'God, I thank ...

... For I don't cheat, I don't sin, and I don't commit adultery. I'm certainly not like that tax collector! ... I'm not even like this tax collector. ... 

But the prayer of the tax collector…

13. But the tax collector stood at a distance, unwilling even to lift up his eyes to heaven. Instead, he beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner!’ 

Jesus replied… Luke 18:14. I tell you, this man, rather than the Pharisee, went home justified. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

As sinners can also pray with a contrite heart. God will hear… Because God sees us from the inside out.

So, today the need for eloquence and wordy prayers may not be heard. So, ‘come clean’ as this is defined…

be completely honest; keep nothing hidden."

  

Lord we come with no deceit and with a contrite heart seek you. Lord, we are privileged as a you have already provided the ultimate. And this is Yours of. Lord Jesus, as You have said.. “behold I am coming quickly and I am bringing my rewards “

Revelation 22:12 "Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me ...

... "Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds…

Don’t lose courage, wait upon the Lord, in the fulness of time it will be done…

Galatians 4:4

But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, In Context  

 

Ephesians 1:10

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.

Ecclesiastes 3:11

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

The 400 years of the ‘Silent period’ between the end of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New Testament, broken by…  Galatians 4:4 ‘The Fullness of Time’

But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, In Context 

So, 2,019 years ago ‘The Fullness of Time’ came and this is what we have…

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.

And Salvation is by His Grace, paid by His Blood…

Hebrews 2:2-4  (NIV)

For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

Hebrews 9:28

so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

Today we have been ‘Redeemed’ Galatians 3:14

He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.

All Gentiles (Non-Jews) are engrafted into the family of Abraham… Praise God!

Listen to Romans 11: https://www.biblegateway.com/audio/mclean/niv/Rom.11

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come… Lord Jesus teach us to be patient as we wait on You and not on others.  Only You Lord knows the fullness of time and because You know our capabilities and nothing that we cannot handle will be given until the right time.

Just like the Israelites, they complained about the Manna and as we saw, they could not contain what they asked for. Lord Your mercies are overwhelming as we are no different. Lord we seek Your Divine guidance and seek fellowship in Your Holy Name as we ask Your blessings on our Visitors.  We thank You for Your graciousness, and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Spending your time wisely, do not squander it, use it to grow in the Body of Christ.

1 Corinthians 12:

   27. Now you are Christ’s body, and individually members of it. 28. And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues. 29. All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? All are not teachers, are they? All are not workers of miracles, are they? 30. All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not interpret, do they? 31. But earnestly desire the greater gifts.
      And I show you a still more excellent way.

The Amplified version of 1 Peter 1:14-16 reads, “Live as children of obedience to God; Do not conform yourselves to the evil desires that governed you in your former ignorance when you did not know the requirements of the Gospel. But as the One Who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living. For it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy.'”

Who is this source of power?  Answer…  Of God.

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.

 2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV)

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)

(We presented the Text in both the NIV & the NKJV)

Notice the text above speaks in past tense, this means The Spirit of God is already ‘given’ and it gives us Power!  Did you receive yours? A few days ago, we spoke of ‘Unclaimed benefits ‘. Today’s message is not a ‘prosperity’ theme; it is a message of Christ’s Grace.

God does not want His people to be under-served, so why is some not receiving the answers to prayers?  James 4:3

When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

700+- Years before the Birth of Christ, Isaiah the prophet to whom God revealed His assurance…

When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:2 New International Version (NIV)

Today 2019 years later, the same assurance is endowed to us… So, we can thank our Faithful Lord and Savior Jesus because He is the same yesterday, today and forever.  How do we know this? Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Principle: 1 Peter 1:25 But the word of the Lord endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:  2 John 1:2 because of the truth which abides in us and will be with us forever

Action/Coming to our Lord: John 1:17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

Conclusion:  Keynote:  We are to add nothing to the Gospel, (No Pre-condition)

For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. - 2 Corinthians 2:15

Faith & the Holy Spirit are the Keys and our anchor; Romans 12:9 [Behave Like a Christian]

 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Romans 12 (Whole Chapter)

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:5-7 (in Context) Hebrews 11 (Whole Chapter)

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Christ Jesus we come knowing that You our Lord & Savior Jesus sits on the Throne of Righteousness and as we come You intercedes for us. Lord we thank You for this day that we are privileged to serve You Lord and to bring Your Good News to all. Lord let our visitors find Grace in You as Your Faithfulness is forever and those that call on You Lord will be Saved. We give You our Praises and we thank You for allowing us to be a Vessel for You Lord. We pray in Jesus our Eternal Sovereign God in One of the Holy Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Wednesday: November 13, 2019

Whatever in done in secrets will be revealed, even your charity as the Lord rewards you openly.

Seek the Lord and receive His Goodness, God desires goodness for us all...

Focus:  While seeking the Lord, seek Him for His mercies, His Love and His Grace, Seek Him to ‘Thank Him’ and to Praise Him for His Majesty, His Divine Gift of Life here and to come as He gave His life for you so that You may have eternal life through Him. Praise our Lord Jesus as we say ‘Our Redeemer Lives’ and we shall see Him on that day.

 John 15:15

No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.

We all have a few ‘fair weather’ friends… such a relationship with the Lord is no relationship as Jesus said…

Matthew 7:23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

God desires goodness for us all, this is why He sent His Son Jesus…

John 3:16-17 (NKJV)

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. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

Note: The Text refers to ‘The World’ but in context… God was referring to the ‘people’ of the World, as He said, ‘Whosoever believes in Him shall not perish’.

Remember the most profound statement ever said on earth was said by Jesus, when He said…” I am not of this world”

Good News…

A Patient & Merciful God… God through His Son Jesus came that we could be saved from the consequences of our sins

2016 years ago, yes, we are in 2016 and on that first day of our calendar year Christ was born in Bethlehem fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah 53 written 700+ years before the first day of 2016.

Principle: The Good News is that God has a plan inspite of our shortcoming…

He came so that we may have life and have it more abundantly… A statement made by Jesus himself; John 10:10

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly

His Redemption: 1 Peter 1:18-19 NIV

For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.

His Eternal Faithfulness:

John 11:25-26 New King James Version (NKJV)

25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” New King James Version 

His Faithfulness-

And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.” John 10:28-30 NKJV

It is already done by the Redeemer:

Mark 11:22-24 (NIV)

22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Action/Coming to our Lord: Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. 

Conclusion

Come to our Lord today as He said come unto Him and He will receive you and forgive you of your sin(s) and you will be a new creation in Christ.

Pray... Lord Jesus I come in Faith accepting Your gift of Salvation and chose to be alive in You by your Grace my Lord. Lord Jesus receive me as I repent of my sin and accept your great Salvation by your Blood of Atonement, and I seek Your divine guidance in my life, to you Lord be the Glory... Amen. 

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord we come to praise You and proclaim You as our Eternal-Sovereign God. Lord as we know that this Day is made by You and all things are made new in You, Lord let us use this day to pray for our Visitors and those who are seeking You to be blessed with Your Peace. We give You preeminence in our lives knowing that we shall see You as You are Jesus Messiah… To You be the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Tuesday: November 12, 2019      

  

Enjoy the freedom, remember the persecuted churches and our Christian families overseas.

Wake up and turn back the tide of ‘foreign religion, and the rise of Islam’.

The places of the world where Christians are persecuted are in countries where, Islam and Atheism are dominant.

While the Bible said, God makes no preference… As Jesus declared, “love your neighbor as yourself”.

Ask anyone if they believe they will be going to heaven, if the answer is yes, ask why? If the answer is…” I have been a good person” then he is lost, and God does not know any ‘good’ people that are not saved by the Blood of Christ.

We cannot gain access to God’s kingdom because of a performance-based life.   If all we had to do is live well, and then we are eligible to enter God’s Kingdom, then Christ would have died in vain…

John 3: 3

3Jesus replied, “Truly, truly, I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.

Know this…  You are an ambassador of a kingdom mightier than any country, start now…

Not only are you a representative of the Almighty, He has empowered you, and equipped you with the most advanced weapons.

And, we are to know this… that while we are engaged by HIM, in His Service, we are on His great Dance Floor, enjoying JOY and Peace that no one can give you.

Greater is HE in us than anyone.  We are, and we do this in Meekness, and Humbleness knowing that we know the answers as we end in Victory in Christ.

Our God is Greater, Stronger and He is Omniscient, Omnipotent and no one like HIM.

A famous man once said, “Although I do not want to live as Christians do, I would like to die as they do”  Obviously this is impossible as a man living without Christ cannot please God, and without Faith this person will never be in the  presence of God.

Paul writing to the Galatians encapsulated the key points of Jesus’ teaching. We will take a brief look back on Paul who was a persecutor of Christians, he even witnessed the stoning death of Steven, and how Saul later known as Paul became a Vessel of Christ. The  Lord chose him and made him a vessel, in fact we read that Paul was not boasting when he said he know of a man that was taken to the third heaven… this is where he received the knowledge of the Good News that he was commissioned to bring to the Gentiles.

His Faithfulness:

Romans 8: 28-35

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord Jesus our Sovereign Eternal God in the Holy Trinity, Lord as You are on the Throne of Righteousness interceding for us Lord, we come and seek you and we bring all things to you Your as You said come and You will give us rest.  Lord today we thank You for the privilege of serving You for Your Glory.  We thank You for our many Visitors and we ask Your divine Blessing on each and Your Favors to be released to those that call on Your Name Lord. We pray this is Your Hold Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen

Monday:    November 11, 2019

The Power of the Holy Spirit… let it flow reaching even to those who offended…

Forgiveness in the first step in letting the Holy Spirit flow through us.

These are the parameters of what governs our standing.

No one comes to the Father except through me  (Jesus said this).

We cannot be Holy except through Christ’s Holiness by His Blood.

We cannot go to the Father unless through Jesus.

We cannot enter the Kingdom unless we are born-again.

Unless we forgive others, we must first forgive other, then seek His Forgiveness.

No one comes to the Father…

John 14:6 New International Version
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.


Mark 11:25 New American Standard Bible
"Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions.

John 3:3 New International Version
Jesus replied, "Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again."

Come clean… do not hold back, just trust the Lord, and He will hear you…

There’s nothing we can hold back from the Lord; He knows our thoughts even before we even think it.  So, come and bring Him all our requests, and above all Thank Him knowing that He heard our petition, and in Faith thank Him for granting your desire.

1 John 5:15

And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him. In Context |

Sometimes our desires are not provided, and we may feel that God is not hearing…  But He did hear, but as James said… James 4:3

You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. In Context 

Commentary:

When our Lord was referring to Mountains, was he referring to a physical mountain? Or the challenges in our lives? Our Lord in His Infinite realms could move a mountain, but He also said O Ye of little faith… His definition of Faith was Divine, and His statement “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, we could move a mountain.  Our Lord in His Infinite mind knew our capabilities, and this is why the “Depth’ of the Faith that He described he reserved for that ‘Last Minute’ of consciousness that we believers will have before passing from this world. This is the ‘Depth’ of our Faith that we will exercise during our transition to Him, and this event is done in the ‘Twinkling of an eye’.

We cannot work our way into His Kingdom, because God will not tolerate Sin, and we are all sinners, if this is so, then we are all doomed? No, because God our Father sent His Son Jesus to Redeem us by His Crucifixion and His Divine Resurrection so that we can be forgiven and receive His Salvation, as Jesus said…”No one comes to the Father except through Him” He was saying unless we are ‘Born-Again’ we cannot enter into the Kingdom.  What is Born-Again?  We were born in Sin because of Adam, but by Jesus’ Crucifixion and Resurrection we now have a new Birth in Him… Praise Him for His Graciousness.  Our Lord Jesus not only saved us by His Sacrifice on the Cross, He sits on the Throne of Righteousness at the Right-Hand of His Father our Creator and He intercedes for us.  We are privileged to have Jesus our Lord and Savior, our Redeemer and our Intercessor.

Prayer: Our Father in Heaven in Jesus we come. Thank You Lord Jesus that through You our Savior we are made Joint-Heirs to Your Kingdom.  Lord we pray that our Visitors will be guided by Your Good News, Lord bless this day as we go forward in Faith and knowing that all our needs are provided, and we give You thanks knowing that Your faithfulness and Your Covenant will never change. Lord, we pray in Your Holy Name and to You Jesus our Sovereign God in One of our Father and Creator, to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory, Now and Forevermore… Amen.

Sunday: November 10, 2019

A day of calmness but Praising to the Lord with A heavenly frequency.

Even Jesus spent time Praying – Prayers are the Pillars of our Faith

Text:               Matthew 14:23
And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.
Matthew 14:22-24 (in Context) Matthew 14 (Whole Chapter) 

Commentary:

What is a ‘Break-through’ Prayer? 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..

Prayer is the cornerstone of all events in our lives, when Jesus took the five loaves and two Fishes, He looked up to Heaven and Prayed… Matthew 14:  19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.

20 And they did all eat and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.

21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.

The following is a brief history of the National Day of Prayer in the USA, (The information is from the official site of the National Day of Prayer Organization) 

The National Day of Prayer is a vital part of our heritage. Since the first call to prayer in 1775, when the Continental Congress asked the colonies to pray for wisdom in forming a nation, the call to prayer has continued through our history In 1988, the law was amended and signed by President Reagan, permanently setting the day as the first Thursday of every May. Each year, the president signs a proclamation, encouraging all Americans to pray on this day.

His Promise:

2 Chronicles 7:14
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

His Faithfulness:

He said our rewards are in heaven, we are to ignore the call to be known; let the principle of  'I shall decrease  and He must increase in my 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

Action/Coming to our Lord:

We must not let our heart be hardened, because he said Matthew 13:14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
you will be ever seeing but never perceiving”.

FOCUS on Our Lord:  this is Jesus' own example to have a prize a 'core' we cannot build without the core
[] Nothing compares with Christ our solid Rock, as all other is sinking sand.
[] By sharing my life with Christ I will become more like Christ
[] We must share in Christ's sufferings and in his victory
Philippians 3: Verse 12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.

When you know Christ, you can say in confidence…” Because Christ has made me his own”

Conclusion:

There's no substitute for our savior
Ephesians 2: 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith —and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come; Lord Your blessing abounds by providing the Showers of Blessings upon us all. Lord we thank You for Your Covenant of Grace; and that the Good News of Your Salvation telling of Your Priceless Gift is still available as we bring this to many in Your name Lord. Bless all Visitors coming to this site and let Your messages of Truth bear fruit for Your Glory Lord. Lord we are privileged to serve You, we thank You for the opportunity, and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Saturday: November 9, 2019

what would you give up to be the richest person in the world? Why? When you are already among the richest in Christ, who made you a Joint Heir to His Kingdom, who need to be rich here?

Matthew 16:26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world...

... And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your
own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? ... 

Here’s what we should give up… Walking by our own and switch to walking in the Holy Spirit by allowing the Lord to be Preeminent in our lives.

The Word said, God will set a table in front of our enemy, and He will fill our cups to overflowing.  This is the real wealth.

So, when you seek wealth, let it be the ‘real’ wealth from the Lord. His Holy Spirit to be indwelling.

Walk in the Light… a Non-failing Light, never needs to be recharged, always On, never fading everlasting…

TEXT: Genesis 1:2-4 (NKJV)

The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was[a] on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.

FOCUS:  The Sun was not placed in the heavens until the fourth (4) day….

Today as we say walk in the Light, a Non-Failing Light, this is Jesus who was declared by God on the first day of His Creation. Because Jesus is the Light of the world on the first Day, He, Jesus was and is the Supreme Eternal Son of God and He is One in the Father.

Colossians 1:17

And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

  • Colossians 1:16-18 (NKJV)

16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

Romans 8:35

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Romans 8:39

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.

1 John 5:1

Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him

2 John 1:3

Grace, mercy, and peace will be with you from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.

Jude 1:21

keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

Revelation 1:5

and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, \

Maybe everyone should spend more time reading the Bible… The Word of God said:

Ezekiel 47:12

Along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.”


EVENING:

Hardship can be a treasure:  just like undergoing training. So, look at what we consider adverse situation to be a ‘rehearsal’ for Victory.  The best runners do a lot of training and their discipline will only yield benefit through a regimental training which is voluntary.  The discipline of the Lord is ‘mandatory’ as we all need to know when we get there to thank Him and not have to go back through the re-training.

Good News-Coming to the Lord:

Lord today as I accept Your Peace, I will not fear what man can do, as You have provided Your Armor…

Note: Our place in Heaven is endowed by our Lord Jesus who said… John 14:3 And “if” I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

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.

Friday: November 8,2019

Imagine a life without politics, strive, greed and conflicts? Yes, it’s possible; Jesus told us how to have this…

My Peace I give….

These resources will be useful as we continue this week:
Psalm 147:5
Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. In Context | Full Chapter |

Proverbs 3:5-6 [Full Chapter] Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

A ‘Peaceful’ society is God’s plan for us all, but we have turned what He created into a place of anxiety.

When you were a kid there was nothing to worry about, thinking of toys, school, friends, playing, and enjoy what kids do would be your agenda. Living today is like being on a fast treadmill that the power switch is broken, the trick is how to get off safely.

Many satisfy their anxiety by being a shopaholic, as we see the closing of many departments stores and retailers closing the big box stores, this is a result of consumerism driven by online purchases. 

A peaceful life is to be satisfied with what we possess, but is doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t think about replacing that worn out car, the broken dishwasher or fixing the broken fence.  Eating is a necessity, but overeating is an indulgence and doing this will cause you to have health issues.  So, everything in moderation is the order of the day.

You can be awake at 3 AM and buy anything Online, in some case it can be delivered within hours.  This is convenience but overdoing this leads to consumerism.  At 3 Am one should be asleep regenerating your mind, conditioning your heart, blood vessels, improves your hearing as sleeping is good for your health.

Philippians 4:6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. In Context | Full Chapter |

Psalm 112:7

They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord. In Context | Full Chapter |

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. In Context | Full Chapter |

John 1:18
No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

Jesus said He is the Light of the World, when He said “world” he was referring to us living beings, not the physical world, He said He came to save sinners, He was declared by God to be ‘The Lamb of God’ what did God mean by this? As a Sacrifice a Lamb without blemish is always chosen as a Sacrifice’ therefore God chose Jesus as His Lamb that was Sacrificed at Calvary for our Sin.  So, when Jesus was Crucified, He said, “It is Finished’ and at that moment the Temple Curtain was torn, revealing the inner place of High-Holy, as Jesus became our High Priest.

 We must turn to Him and receive His Gift of Grace.  Jesus Rose Triumphantly, and conquered death forever for mankind. And through His Grace we have His ‘Priceless’ Gift of Everlasting Life with Him.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father we thank You with Jesus our Lord and our Mediator. Lord Jesus guide us and bless our Visitors and us all, we give You our Praise and to You be the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

Thursday: November 7, 2019

What will be your legacy? Do you need one? Yes, you have one; make it is a life in Christ. 

Bought and ‘Paid for’… no money needed, come and buy without money…


When you are God’s prized-possession, you are bought and ‘Paid-for’ by His Blood. But while you are His prized possession, you are not an object, but rather you are a ‘subject’ a member of His family, as a child of His.

As a child of God, we are privileged as He provides all our needs. Not our ‘Wants’ but our ‘needs’ and He know what we have need of even before we ask.

As a child of God, we abide by His precepts, and we love Him and keeps His commandments because of our adoration of Him. In the Body of Christ, we have communion with the Father and through Jesus our Lord and Savior we have His Providence.

His Providence we are thankful for, but it is His Righteousness and His Unconditional love that is preeminent in our lives.  Because with Christ we can say…’In my heart there rings a melody’, and through Christ we have His Joy, come what may we know that Jesus said…” I will never leave you nor forsake you”.

  “I love it when a plan comes together.” A quote by George Peppard in the TV Series ‘The A-Team’

It was used frequently throughout the show’s five-season run from 1983 to 1986 by the team’s cigar-chomping leader, Colonel John “Hannibal” Smith, played by actor George Peppard.

Today we too can say…I love it when a plan comes together, because it is God’s Plan. As another quote by an actor Woody Allen… If you want God to laugh, tell him about your plans.

Man plans, and God laughs. it is a Yiddish proverb that demonstrates life doesn’t always go as planned or else that God is in control, not man. There was a man who was planning to retire only 2 weeks more at his work, and then before it happened died of a heart attack.

There was a man who was planning to be a professional football player, he was really good, then his girlfriend fell off a cliff, and he went after her to save her. he fell 100 feet, shattered a few bones and his face, he was never going to be a pro football player again. BUT he became a pastor and millionaire selling a few books and becoming really big in the Christian world.

there was a man who wanted to do a concert. So, he the day he was supposed to set up, it kept raining and raining and raining. the Man was so angry because he was trying to set up a Christian concert in tribute to Jesus to get people to know him, He was so angry at God he wondered why God would not give him a blessing to do so.

anyways it rained so hard he could not have the concert as he wanted to, later that week they discovered that there had been a bomb, and the bomb was planted exactly where the concert was supposed to be. This is an actual story that happened.

so, you see, life is filled up with compromise and surprise, as a matter of fact, the majority of your plans are probably abandoned, or changed, or not met in one way or another. when you are a kid you are filled up with plans, usually those plans don’t go as you expected. this simple proverb is to illustrate that God is in control and that Man doesn’t have absolute control over everything. it really is a clever proverb to show sometimes in life you don’t get the way you want, and more times than not, you are in a direction you never planned for. really the only certainty in life is death, so in between here and there, you can make many plans and sometimes they go right all the time, and sometimes they never go right at all. That is because man plans, and God laughs.

This is God’s Plan…

 What a privilege to be grafted into the family of Abraham by the blood of Christ…

Take the next step, Just do it, what are you waiting for? These are the language of sales pitches.  Try it and you will like it, for your free samples just Text the following number, etc.  Addiction is one of the biggest plagues to mankind, it is no respecters of person, and it is from your family physician, not the Mexican drug cartel. The greed of money has no boundaries, it is no longer the illicit drug dealers, it is now from your friendly neighborhood pharmacies.

Thanks be to God that we are redeemed and...

Romans 11: being grafted into the family of God…

17 But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, although a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing root of the olive tree, 18. do not be arrogant toward the branches. If you are, remember it is not you who support the root, but the root that supports you. 

19. Then you will say, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” 2.0 That is true. They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand fast through faith. So do not become proud, but fear. 

21. For if God did not spare the natural branches, neither will he spare you. 22. Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity toward those who have fallen, but God’s kindness to you, provided you continue in his kindness. Otherwise you too will be cut off. 23. And even they, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God has the power to graft them in again. 

24. For if you were cut from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, the natural branches, be grafted back into their own olive tree

The Lord makes no preference…

Job 34:19 who shows no partiality to princes and does not favor ...

... Who doesn't give preference to the nobles over the poor? ... who shows no partiality to princes, and does not take note of the rich more than the poor, because all ... they are all the work of his hands?

Come and buy without money…

Isaiah 55:1 "Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters ...

... Ho, every thirsty one, come ye to the waters, And he who hath no money, Come ye,
buy and eat, yea, come, buy Without money and without price, wine and milk. .

Thank the Lord for His Graciousness, Praises to Jesus our Lord and Savior….

Prayer: Lord Jesus because of Your Faithfulness interceding to the Father we have this privilege of being in the Holy presence of the Father. Father we give You Praises and thank You for Your Divine Providence. Thank You Lord for remembering us and our Visitors as we go in faith trusting You. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forever… Amen.

 Moses was reluctant in doing what God command him to do. Are you ready to serve?

God called many and instructed them to carry out His request, He called, Jonah, Moses, Ananias and many others, these named were reluctant. There were some called, or rather compelled by Him, such as: Saul who became Paul.

Are you reluctant in following God’s calling? Why are we commission to bring the gospel to others? Why are you more privileged than the Angels of the Lord? Because angels are not given this authority, they can manifest themselves, defend us and as they Bible said… Angels encamped around us. Yet, they need us to bring the Message.

Text…
New Living Translation
Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation. Hebrews 1:14

The Word of God said… Be Holy because He is holy… but we must be reminded that our holinesses comes only through Christ.

Text… Leviticus 20: 7 New Living Translation
So set yourselves apart to be holy, for I am the LORD your God.

Praying for someone and others, this is a privilege as we come to the Father through Jesus who intercedes for us… it is supernatural that we in faith knows that our prayers are being heard.  Do not lose hope, keep praying knowing that God is faithful, and He is Omniscient, He sees and hears everything.

Text: 1 Samuel 16: 7 New American Standard Bible 
But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."

So, be ready to serve the Lord… you may not be able to bring a fresh bouquet of red roses daily, but you can bring the Word of God, it is ‘Free’, and it is always fresh.

Remember… The answer to today’s challenges are found in Christ.

The Grace and Love of our Lord

His Sovereignty, His Majesty, His Love, His Redemption….

His Omniscient… Jesus is with us always, even to the ends of the age:  

Matthew 28:20  teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20 (in Context) Matthew 28 (Whole Chapter) Mark 14:7

HE is Omnipotent:  From Jesus our Eternal God, we receive His Power through His Holy Spirit:

2 Peter 1:3 [Confirming One’s Calling and Election] His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
2 Peter 1:2-4 (in Context) 2 Peter 1 (Whole Chapter)

His Love:   Our Sovereign God loves us so much He sent His Son to Redeem us

1 John 4:10  NIV
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
1 John 4:9-11 (in Context) 1 John 4 (Whole Chapter)

2 John 1:6
And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.
2 John 1:5-7 (in Context) 2 John 1 (Whole Chapter)

His Divine Providence

Job 10:12 NIV
You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit. Job 10:11-13 (in Context) Job 10 (Whole Chapter):

His Saving Grace:

2 Timothy 1:9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,
2 Timothy 1:8-10 (in Context) 2 Timothy 1 (Whole Chapter)

Conclusion: We can come to the Throne of Righteousness in Prayer knowing that our High Priest our Redeemer Jesus Christ intercedes for us and by His Grace we are Saved… Amen

Reminder to our visitors, keep looking to our Lord to be the Author and Finisher of our Faith… God Loves You, and come to Jesus as He is our Mediator and our Sovereign God in One of His Divine Holy Trinity in His Father our Creator and His Holy Spirit. †††

 (Claim this tonight by coming to our Lord) Romans 8:38-39 New International Version (NIV)

38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 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.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come.  Lord we thank You for Your Covenant of Grace and Your Eternal Word of Assurance as in You Lord Jesus nothing can ever separate us from You as we look to that day when we shall see You Lord Jesus. We approach Your throne of Grace with confidence to receive Your mercies and by Your Grace Your providence shall be upon us and our Visitors. Lord we thank You and give You first place in our lives, Lord we pray in Your Precious Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Are you using your God given talent for Him? How should we serve? Ask Him…

What is the God-Given talent that you have received? Was it helpful in your career? Was it useful in entertaining others?

The self-help book of ‘How to win friends and influence people’ sold over 17 million copies, one of the best-selling books of all times. But the Holy Bible is still the No.1 best sellers of all times.

So, what Talent did you receive? Certainly, you did use it and am still using it, think of how it may be able to help others.  The cynical adage of ‘No good-deeds go unpunished’ it was probably composed by the devil, and it is a deterrence to administer help to others.  The phrase was declared by someone that wanted accolades for whatever he did. And this is contrary to God’s plan for us in doing things for others.

Therefore, use your talent without blowing a trumpet.  Be under the radar, just do it in the name of the Lord as He sees what we do, and He will reward you in the open.

Here we see two that used their talent, both with the Divine help of the Lord…

Making the Iron-Axe Float, try doing this, it’s not possible, so how did it float?

Under the law of physic an Iron Axe cannot float…

2 Kings 6:  As one of them was cutting down a tree, the iron axe head fell into the water. “Oh no, my lord!” he cried out. “It was borrowed!”

The man of God asked, “Where did it fall?” When he showed him the place, Elisha cut a stick and threw it there, and made the iron float. “Lift it out,” he said. Then the man reached out his hand and took it.

Same as the Miracle on the Hudson; an airplane landed and floated.

Only by the Grace of God… Captain Sully, a Believer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSlbHK07fkY

updated 1/16/2009

NEW YORK — Chesley Sullenberger spent practically his whole life preparing for the five-minute crucible that was US Airways Flight 1549.

He got his pilot's license at 14, flew fighter jets in the Air Force, investigated air disasters, mastered glider flying and even studied the psychology of how cockpit crews behave in a crisis.

When the ultimate test came on a descent over the Hudson River, he spoke into the intercom only once and gave perhaps the most terrifying instruction a pilot can give — "Brace for impact" — with remarkable calm.

And as the 150 passengers of Flight 1549 marveled at their hero pilot's skill and cool head, they learned what friends and relatives of Sullenberger say they have known all along. "This is someone who has not just spent his life flying airplanes but has actually dug very deeply into what makes these things work, and I think he proved it," said Robert Bea, a civil engineer who has known Sullenberger for a year.

His wife, Lorraine, appearing outside their Danville, Calif., home, called her husband a "pilot's pilot" who "loves the art of the airplane." She described him, as almost everyone else had, as controlled and professional.

"This is the Sully I know," she said. "I always knew how he would react. So, to me this is not something unusual. It's the man I know."

Sullenberger grew up in Denison, Texas, about an hour north of Dallas. In those days, he went by his middle name, Burnett. People remember he made headlines in the local paper for flying a crop duster at age 15.

'Brace for impact'

On Thursday afternoon, as Sullenberger banked his crippled Airbus A320 left over the Bronx, steered it over the George Washington Bridge and down the Hudson River, his life and 154 others depended on his expertise. The jet's twin engines had apparently been disabled by a collision with a flock of birds.

The cabin was almost completely silent when Sullenberger came on the intercom seconds before the plane hit water.

"I can tell you verbatim: 'Brace for impact,'" said Mark Hood of Charlotte, N.C., who was flying home after a work trip. "He said it in a calm, cool, controlled voice. It was a testament to leadership."

"Had he let any tension leak into his voice," Hood said, "it would have been magnified in the passengers."

As the cabin took on water, Sullenberger climbed out of the jet only after the four other crew members and 150 passengers made their orderly exit. When he reached a raft, someone on a ferry tossed him a knife, and he cut away the tether to the jet.

One by one, the passengers were plucked to safety from the rafts, Hood and Sullenberger the last ones left. The passenger insisted the pilot get off first, but Sullenberger refused. He had been the last off the plane, and he would be the last off the raft.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father just as You made the Iron-Axe floated, You guided Sullenberger and his crew to safety. Lord today as we seems to be in a ‘Free-fall’ in this world, Lord we can be assured of Your assurance that we are never alone, as You have said…”Never will You leave us nor forsake us”  We thank You Lord for our Visitors and we seek Your Divine blessing and we go in Faith knowing that all things work together for Good to all who loves You Lord. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus… Amen

Sunday: November 3, 2019

            Gathering the grapes to make good wine with it. Leave the blighted ones behind. Use ripen grapes. Make sure they are ripe by squishing up a good double handful, straining the juice ...

Winnowing is to remove (something, such as chaff) Separating the chaff from the grains.

Are you and us selected to be good grapes and grains? Are we bearing good fruits? Let us be the grain and not the chaff; not to be blown away. Stay in the Light.

Plants need the light to allow the photosynthesis to grow, and so do we. We need the Light of Jesus as He is the light of our lives. Yes, He is the Light, as God said on the first day ”Let there be Light” and there was light, as we remember the Sun was not yet created until the fourth day.

Remain in the Light…

Text:  Without me you can do nothing… John 15:5

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

1 Corinthians 16:22 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

22 If anyone does not love the Lord, he is to be accursed. Maranatha.

Commentary:  ‘I am a Christian… but I do not go to church because I cannot stand hypocrisy.  How can one say this? So when you get to heaven do you think God will give you your own ‘Island’ if we were all perfect, then we wouldn’t need Jesus, and Jesus would have dined for no reason.

Many of us do have some issues with others, in church, our neighbors, our business contacts, and especially drivers on the road. One sure way of getting you anxiety level up is driving on the streets of Miami, in a short quarter of a mile you will be cut-off 2 or more times. There is no reason to cut off the other driver two car lengths ahead just to get to the traffic light that will be turning red. 

Jesus is whom we should seek, not the ‘country-club’ atmosphere of the church, we go to church for one reason and one only purpose… To Praise our Lord, to Thank Him to give Him the Glory, to receive His Divine Blessing from Him as He said where two or more are gathered “I Am in their midst” so the Blessing is flowing from Him by His Divine Holy Spirit… The Comforter that He sent on the day of Pentecost, so today as you attend service come to Christ in ‘Oneness’ because; in the Body of Christ is where we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace… Ephesians 1: 7

Forgive all that may have offended you who may have not greeted you and treat you as a stranger, ask the Lord to let them know that they will not be getting their own ‘Island’ they will be at a gathering in a place of Splendor where our Lord will be the center of it all.  We are individuals and we think we are all very special, but the Apostle Paul said, Let Christ increase and he Paul should decrease.  Today walk like you are Highly-Blessed to know that you are a Child of the Most-High.

So, this morning as we listen to the presenter of the Gospel, focus on the Gospel and not the Messenger. The Gospel is the message, like when you listen to music, the equipment is just a platform that brings the music to life… so sharpen your minds and ‘Hear’ the message not the tonal voice of the person speaking…

A footnote to the human tragedy of man’s ruling…

56+ Million babies were aborted since Roe Vs Wade in the USA (Equivalent to 23.30% of the world)

1.3 Billion Babies aborted worldwide since 1980 (Equivalent to 18.50% of the world’s total population)

6.4 Million babies aborted by Planned Parenthood since 1970 they performed 116,000+ Abortions so far this year.

Our ‘Blog’ today is not to take away from the devotion, but we believe that unless we know the root cause of the ills of society, we cannot heal the nation. The only way that our nation can be healed is to turn to God and seek Him.  

His Promise / His Faithfulness:  “Vengeance is mine saith the Lord”…. Hebrews 10:30

For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The LORD will judge His people.”

Conclusion:  The value of Life is priceless, and man has squandered 1.3 Billion lives to accomplish what? Because of not wanting to reveal their illicit sex, or for selfish reasons, or just no respect for life.  Nothing hidden will remain a secret. All must know that our Lord is Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresence and He knows every event in each of our lives, all 7+ billion people on earth, and the 1.3 billion killed under the false label of ‘Choice’

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus we seek Your Divine intervention in our society as the forbearance of our sin is tested, but Your mighty Grace abounds. Lord open the eyes of those against You, use us to bring Your Good News to remove the barriers to lead many to You. We give You the Glory Lord. Amen.

Saturday: November 2, 2019

            Arrogance is our worse enemy… boasting and prideful are the time bombs in our lives… beware.

The example of King Saul and David the shepherd boy who would be king.

Saul in his arrogance sought to kill David, and as time went by Saul grew  with arrogance against David, and God removed His anointing of Saul.

While David is known for the sins committed against God, as in the case of his affair with Bathsheba, and even worse his murder of Bathsheba’s husband.  But, in spite of David’s sins, he repented and sought God’s forgiveness.  As we read of David’s repentance and his prayer to God…

Psalm 51:

For the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. When Nathan the prophet came to him after his adultery with Bathsheba.

1. Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your loving devotion; according to Your great compassion, blot out my transgressions.

2. Wash me clean of my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.

3. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.

4. Against You, You only, have I sinned and done what is evil in Your sight, so that You may be proved right when You speak and blameless when You judge.

5. Surely I was brought forth in iniquity; I was sinful when my mother conceived me.

6. Surely You desire truth in the inmost being; You teach me wisdom in the inmost place.

7. Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

8. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones You have crushed rejoice.

9. Hide Your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquities.

10. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.

11. Cast me not away from Your presence; take not Your Holy Spirit from me.

12. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and sustain me with a willing spirit.

13. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners will return to You.

14. Deliver me from bloodguilt, O God, the God of my salvation, and my tongue will sing of Your righteousness.

15. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth will declare Your praise.

16. For You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; You take no pleasure in burnt offerings.

17. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.

18. In Your good pleasure, cause Zion to prosper; build up the walls of Jerusalem.

19. Then You will delight in righteous sacrifices, in whole burnt offerings;

then bulls will be offered on Your altar.

God sees us from the inside-out…

We see David’s repentance with a contrite hear, with no deceit… and God responded with a most gracious response…

Acts 13:22 After removing Saul, he made David their king. God ...

... God testified concerning him: 'I have found David son of Jesse, a man after
my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.' ... 

Standing on God’s promise….

Today, pray and stand back… allowing the power of God’s hand to work in your life. He can use each of us to accomplish His will. So, let it be His will and not your will. Because, His will is the way of Truth in a Life led by His glorious Providence and Love ️ for each other.

His Promise:

This should bring you great comfort, for if you have committed your life to Jesus Christ, God has promised that His angels will be with you at all times, to protect and guide you. This doesn't mean we'll never have problems, or that we'll always choose the right path in life -- but it does mean we'll never be snatched from God's loving hands. We aren't to worship the angels or make them the focus of our faith -- but we are to trust God's promise that "he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways" (Psalm 91:11).

The Bible doesn't say the angels pray for us -- and the reason is because One far greater than the angels already is praying for us: The Lord Jesus Christ. He alone is the divine Son of God, who even now sits in heaven interceding for us (see Hebrews 7:25). Is your faith and trust in Him -- both for today and for eternity?

Conclusion:  The Assurance of our Lord is eternal, the ‘Insurance’ by the best rated insurer will expire, and even they themselves need the ‘Real’ Assurance for that fateful day when all things will be let loose, as Jesus holds it all together but there is a day known as ‘The day of the Lord’ when all things will be shaken, it will be a day like we have never seen.

While our Lord is Faithful and loving and is Forgiving, He is also a God of ‘Consuming Fire’ as there will be an expiration of His Grace. Grace is defined as “UN-Merited” and is something that is not earned, therefore we need to know that His Fair-Warning is also to be respected as in due course of time, (which we never know when) ‘The Day of the Lord’ will come, or when we will be taken from this world. 

The proof positive of His Creation is becoming more evident even through Science, now we are learning of the “God-Particle’ as the missing-link…. Is God allowing man to gain more in-sight? Are we coming closer to the full realization that all things are made by Him? 

Remember the story of God telling man ‘Get your own Dirt’.

 Today we face a global immigration and economic challenge, why? Man, in their quest to build a utopia here is futile as the scriptures says there will be no lasting peace here, and only when He returns will the Believers be at Peace by being with our Lord.  As the famous buy-line of an insurance company asked...” Are you in Good Hands?” right now those in Christ can say YES.

Hebrews 10:23
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.

Prayer: Prayer: 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 we seek Your blessings on us all. Lord we thank You for Your Saving Grace and we give You our Praises and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Friday: November 1, 2019    

Prosperity should lead to contentment, but to some it leads to disaster. I once knew a man that was considered among the richest person in the State, and most certainly the City in which I resides.  This was a person that I met many years ago, he invited me to tour several buildings that he built on the ocean, in each of these buildings he had a number of unsold luxury condominiums. He offered me to take them all at a negotiated price, no money needed. But I declined, we remained friends.

One day he asked me to visit him at his office, I got there on time, but he was running late. His Chief Financial Officer said I could wait in his office; as I waited, I walked around looking at the many photographs of his trophy properties, one in particular was a top-secret location that is a vital facility for national defense. I went back to the CFO and said what is that picture I saw? he said I wasn’t supposed to see it, but since I saw it, he said… it was a classified strategic site leased to our government.

All the foregoing was irrelevant in his life, as he was embroiled in lawsuits with his daughter and his son over monies. Here we see a man of massive wealth but had no peace.

Jesus said… John 14: 7 New International Version
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.

Matthew 6: 3 New Living Translation
But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.

So, what’s more important: Health versus wealth?  Wealth versus family disputes and lack of peace?

Luke 10:

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

25 One day an expert in the law stood up to test Him. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

26 “What is written in the Law?” Jesus replied. “How do you read it?”

27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ and ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.

28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus said. “Do this and you will live.”

29 But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

30 Jesus took up this question and said, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him, beat him, and went away, leaving him half dead.

31 Now by chance a priest was going down the same road, but when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

32 So too, when a Levite came to spot and saw him, he passed by on the other side.

33 But when a Samaritan on a journey came upon him, he looked at him and had compassion. 

34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

35 The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Take care of him,’ he said, ‘and on my return I will repay you for any additional expense.’

36 Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

37 “The one who showed him mercy,” replied the expert in the law.

Then Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”


Prayer: Lord today we are listening and stand ready to go according to your Will. Lord let us hear and Lord reveal to us Your Will for each of us. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all your providence as we go in faith knowing that all things work for the Good to those who loves You. Lord Jesus to you is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Thursday:       As a kid, the family lost the key to open the safe, they made many versions without success, I tried, and I made one that opened it… but to regret it years later, why? Read more.

The frantic attempts to make a key to open a safe where all the family were trying, I had seen such a key before and remembered the shape. I made it and it opened the safe. Years later I was asked to visit my uncle, who gave me an impression of a key and asked me to make a copy. I found out that the key he wanted made was to open a vault where my aunt kept money, and he wanted access to it. I told him I could not do it and he was so disappointed. My uncle may have had some justification to access the vault, as the money he was trying to get were essentially his as my aunt took it out of the business that he ran. But my decision was founded on the principle of myself being an accomplice in the break-in. That was the last time I saw him.

Decades have passed and looking back at myself as a kid, I have thanked the Lord even today for me refusing to the make that key. I never shared the experience with my mom (my uncle’s sister) nor anyone else, this I did in respect of my uncle.

In life… how many event or experience that you never shared with anyone? The best experience that you can keep as a secret are the ones that you helped someone.

Matthew 6: 3 New International Version
But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,

Many years ago, I went to thank my cousin for his visit to my mother in my absence, and he said…”it is nothing” as he said this, he told me of my Dad’s kindness to him when he was laid off as the principal of a school and he had not money… He said, he would never forget how my dad came by and gave him money in his time of need. 

I thank the Lord for my Dad’s compassion as he and that same cousin and a group of Christian men founded a church that over the years is now a mega-church. On the day of my Dad’s passing, I went to the hospital to get his personal items, among what I gathered was a small New Testament that he carried all his life, now I too do the same.

The world consists of two groups of people. Group ‘A’ Leaders; and Group “B” those that are always building obstacles.   Sometimes leaders can be wrong, both intentionally and inadvertently, but we are given that Divine freedom of choice and by discernment we need to know…

Trust in the LORD with all Your Heart

Proverbs 3:

1 My son, do not forget my teaching,

but let your heart keep my commandments;

2 for they will add length to your days,

years and peace to your life.

3 Never let loving devotion or faithfulness leave you;

bind them around your neck,

write them on the tablet of your heart.

4 Then you will find favor and high regard

in the sight of God and man.

5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart,

and lean not on your own understanding;

6 in all your ways acknowledge Him,

and He will make your paths straight.

7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;

fear the LORD and turn away from evil.

8This will bring healing to your body

and refreshment to your bones.

9 Honor the LORD with your wealth

and with the firstfruits of all your harvest;

10then your barns will be filled with plenty,

and your vats will overflow with new wine.

11 My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD,

and do not loathe His rebuke;

12 for the LORD disciplines the one He loves,

as does a father the son in whom he delights’

The Blessings of Wisdom

13Blessed is the man who finds wisdom,

the man who acquires understanding,

14 for she is more profitable than silver,

and her gain is better than fine gold.

15 She is more precious than rubies;

nothing you desire compares with her.

16 Long life is in her right hand;

in her left hand are riches and honor.

17All her ways are pleasant,

and all her paths are peaceful.

18 She is a tree of life to those who embrace her,

and those who lay hold of her are blessed.

19 The LORD founded the earth by wisdom

and established the heavens by understanding.

20 By His knowledge the watery depths were broken open,

and the clouds dripped with dew.

21 My son, do not lose sight of this:

Preserve sound judgment and discernment.

22 They will be life to your soul

and adornment to your neck.

23Then you will go on your way in safety,

and your foot will not stumble.

24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid;

when you rest, your sleep will be sweet.

25 Do not fear sudden danger

or the ruin that overtakes the wicked,

26 for the LORD will be your confidence

Prayer… Father in Heaven through Jesus our Lord and Savior we Praise You and give You first-place in our hearts. Lord Jesus to as we go in faith, knowing that all things are from You and through You and to You Lord Jesus is the Glory. Lord bless our Visitors and let Your Grace abounds in each of our lives. In Your Holy Name we pray and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory. Amen.
