              Lord not only did You came to save us, but you came that we would have an abundant life, and an even more abundant life. A life with You eternally.

Topic:  We can trust Him, because He is God…

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

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

Text: Hebrews 12:1

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

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

Philippians 2:15 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

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

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

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

Our mission is to showcase Christ our redeemer by being humble

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

Being aware that I am a sinner is not enough

I cannot be a good person by works

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

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

2. To focus on him and. Grow in him

3. Focus on Jesus not on myself

4. Change from work to Grace by faith

5. There's no substitute for our savior

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

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

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

His Faithfulness:

Romans 8 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Deliverance from Bondage

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

EVENING:

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Pray for Mercy

The gospel should change our life, by opening up:

 1. A New attitude by imitating Jesus…

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

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

Philippians 3: Verse 7:

7 But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. 8 More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ, 9 and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith, 10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death;11 in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

 Do not brag about our own attainment

 To be a bold but yet be a humble person simultaneously

 Rejoice in the Lord

 How Paul found joy in the Faith

 Verse 13 strain forward to what lies ahead

 Do not look back to past negative experiences look forward to the future in Christ

Conclusion:

Approach every day by making Christ preeminent in our lives by starting with me (Self)

Have a zeal to serve Him, which we can say…I have found a friend in Christ

Prayer:

Heavenly Father we come in Jesus our Lord and savior, Lord Jesus our Sovereign Eternal God in One of our Father and Creator, we acknowledge you today sitting at the Right-Hand of our Father and through You Lord Jesus we have been Redeemed and made a Joint Heir to the Kingdom.  Lord, we thank You for the privilege of serving and we ask Your Divine Blessings on those that call upon Your Holy Name, Lord bless the hundreds of Visitors to this Website and grant Your Peace to all. We Love You Lord and we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

Praise: In Christ Alone…

              Is your church a “Members’ Only’ place, then you need to find a better ‘Club’…Jesus was not a member of any particular church, He was there as the ‘Founder’, but they treated Him as an Outsider’. Can you be baptized there without being a member?

What is a Church?  

The word church … is put for the persons that are ordained for the ministry of the Gospel the clergy…

Church Membership

Church membership..., is it legalism or Spirituality? When Philip did baptize the Ethiopian without him being a member of the church. Factually, the Ethiopian became a member of the Body of Christ.

Many churches on a Sunday would introduce a new ‘Member’ and the congregation would applause the new member, but the next week this Person failed to show and dropped out.  “Membership” must be from the ️ heart, a commitment to Christ, not to the church. But if you love the Lord, then you will love the church as a Body of Christ… focused at building a ‘Home’ for the Body of Christ that are made up of born-again believers seeking to spread the Gospel.

A Church is where the Spirit of the Holy Father and Son are present.  As Jesus said…

Matthew 18:20 For where two or three gathers in My Name ...

For where two or three gathers in My name, there am I with them…

Philippians 4:6

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:5-7 (in Context) Philippians 4 (Whole Chapter)

Mark 9:23

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

Evening:

Mark 11:24

Therefore, I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you. Mark 11:23-25 (in Context) Mark 11 (Whole Chapter

Finally, we have the Word of our Lord and His Word is eternal…

Mark 10:27

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

Mark 10:26-28 (in Context) Mark 10 (Whole Chapter)

And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He *said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” Revelation 21:4-6 (in Context) Revelation 21 (Whole Chapter)

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord we thank You for the many Visitors in all three languages. Lord bless our Visitors as You said, “Whoever calls upon Your Name Lord Jesus shall be saved. Lord Thank You for leading us by Your Holy Spirit, as we obey Your commandment as spoken by You Lord…” That we shall love You Lord God with all our hearts, with all our Soul, and with our entire Mind. As we acknowledge this as Your First and Greatest Commandment. Lord be with each of us tonight as we end the day and look to you Lord for a New Dawn full of Grace and be Divinely guided by Your Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus in Your Holy Name we pray and to You Lord is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday: December 29th, 2019

The Prophecy is being fulfilled daily… do you sense it? Be a witness for Christ as He is returning.

Today you can have a ‘Care-free’ moment, do it now come to Christ.

     The Omniscient of the Lord, He knows you and loves you, just ask Him if He does.

The answer from our Lord is… Yes, He loves us all. We see His love by His mercies. 

Consider this, if you built a house and allowed someone to live in it, and when you send your son to tell them that there is another place beyond this place, and your son told them the truth about themselves, but instead of welcoming your son, they killed him. Would you love those people?

Jesus spoke of the above, and this is exactly what they did to the Son of God.   Yet His mercies are still extended to each of us… 

Matthew 21:33

The Parable of the Wicked Vinedressers] “Hear another parable: There was a certain landowner who planted a vineyard and set a hedge around it, dug a winepress in it and built a tower. And he leased it to vinedressers and went into a far country.

Matthew 21:38

But when the vinedressers saw the son, they said among themselves, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and seize his inheritance.’

The love of Christ goes far beyond what our mind can comprehend, or our eyes can see… His love Transends any extent of love we could offer the Lord.

The Omniscient of the Lord is affirmed in:

Matthew 19:26

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Colossians 1:16

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.

 

Colossians 1:17

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

Colossians 1:18

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.

 

Colossians 1:20

and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

The reference above is to ‘all things’…No, we are not referred to as ‘Things’ but The Lord is referring to our sins as ‘Things’ and our sins are reconciled through His Blood that is an atonement for the ‘things’ we have done against Him.

So, today we give Jesus…’The Christ’ God’s Anointed Holy One Preeminence in ‘all-things’ because through Him we have His reconciliation with the Father, and He; Jesus our Redeemer is One in the Father. Because…

Matthew 11:27 (Jesus spoke this)

All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.

Yes! It is a Fact… Jesus is still the Only Way.  The Message is not ‘watered-down’ here.  Nothing has change in what Jesus said…

John 14:6  “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Note: Jesus did not say it because of arrogance, He said it because He loves ️ us and wants us all to come to Him into His Kingdom.

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

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

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

The Divine Super-Natural powers of our God far exceeds our thinking abilities… so today we stand in awe of the great things our Lord has done for us; His Divine Redemption through his Crucifixion and His Triumphant Resurrection.  Knowing this we are more awe-struck that Jesus who is God Incarnate would do this for us, yes, he did!  Because we are His greatest treasures, when He created us in His Likeness

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

Saturday: December 28th, 2019

Born as a man, yet he is the ‘Great I Am’.  And he came to save you and us.

Thank You Lord Jesus for coming on the sole mission of saving sinners.

The Bible clearly shows that Jesus was fully human

As a child, he grew physically, intellectually, socially, and spiritually (Luke 2:40, 52).

He grew tired; he slept; he sweat; he was hungry and thirsty; he bled and died; his body was buried (Matt. 4:2; 8:24; Luke 22:44; John 4:6-7; 1908-42).

After he rose from the dead, he ate and drank with people and let them see his scars and touch his body (Luke 24:39-43; John 2027-29; Acts 10:41).

The Bible also clearly shows that Jesus was fully God

Jesus did on earth what only God can do: he commanded the forces of nature

 (Matt. 8:23-27; 14:22-33), forgave sins (Mark 2:1-12); claimed to be superior to the Sabbath law (John 5:17-18); and gave life to whomever he pleased (John 519-23).

Paul said that God purchased the church with his own blood (Acts 20:28).

Paul also said that the rulers of this world unwittingly crucified the Lord of glory (1 Cor. 2:8).

All the fullness of God's nature and being resides in Jesus' risen body (Col. 2:9).

2 Corinthians 11:14
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 (in Context) 2 Corinthians 11 (Whole Chapter) 

Come to Christ and receive His Redemption, in Faith to receive Him…

Pray: Lord Jesus I am a Sinner, I come and repent of my sin by receiving Your Priceless Gift through Your Blood of Atonement, I invite You Lord to come into my heart and make me a new creation by your Grace. Lord I commit myself to You Lord and ask Your Holy Spirit to be with me from henceforth, To You Lord is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father we thank You for this privilege of serving You for Your Glory. Lord bless our Visitors and Lord Open the floodgates that this endeavor will spread Your Living Water.  Lord we Praise You and to You Lord Jesus we give You the Glory and to You Jesus Messiah is the Power for evermore… Amen.

Friday: December 27th, 2019

Herod the ‘great’ was not so great, as the Wisemen outsmarted him.  God could have stopped him, but Jesus was born to be like us, and experienced even death, which He conquered.

Here we see one of the biggest lies ever told by Herod...

Matthew 2:8 

New International Version
He sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him."

Herod said…” so that I too may go and worship him."

The wisemen were truly wise, but they were warned; 12. And having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they withdrew to their country by another route.

But we know it was not Herod’s intention to come and worship Jesus. this was not his intention, as Prophesied in (Jeremiah 31:1-30)

16. When Herod saw that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was filled with rage. Sending orders, he put to death all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, according to the time he had learned from the Magi. 17. Then what was spoken through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled:

18. “A voice is heard in Ramah,

weeping and great mourning,

Rachel weeping for her children,

and refusing to be comforted,

because they are no more.”

We affirm that...

The Birth of Jesus was not a ‘staged’ event; He was Predestined by The Creator, to be our Redeemer.

Isaiah 9: 8
Written 700+ Years before Jesus was born…

For unto us a child is Born, to us a Son is given, 
and the government will be on His shoulders.
And He will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, 
(New international Version © 2010) 

Here’s why Jesus came…

Romans 5:9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!

You can come to Christ today…
Romans 5:8-10 (in Context) Romans 5 (Whole Chapter)

To Receive His Holy Spirit today, we have this opportunity right now… Because of HIS Blessed Assurance, if you come to Christ today the Angels will celebrate in heaven today.

Romans 8: 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

(Today you are all here for one Reason, to be given this Opportunity to become JOINT HEIR with Jesus) because in…Verse 29 For those (You and me) God foreknew he also predestined (YOU) to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he (JESUS) might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 

Verse 30 And those he predestined, (you and me) he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.

Come to Christ today and receive His Assurance that you are in the Lamb’s book of Life. Be privileged to be called a Child of the Most-High. He loves you and He will give you His Holy Spirit to guide you.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Redeemer we come. Lord Jesus as we thank you for coming so that we may be saved by Your Grace. Lord Your Divine Holiness and Righteousness we acknowledge and it is only by Your Grace that we can say… You our Redeemer lives, and we shall see you as Your are. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore.  Amen.

Born fully human… Yet He was God among us. 

Good to know - before all things The Trinity was there

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

The Son is God,

*       The Word was God. (John 1:1-5, 14) Jesus is identified as

"the Word."

*       I and the Father are one. (John 10:30-33)

 Jesus' disciple Thomas addressed Jesus as "My Lord and my God." (John 20.28)

Jesus did not tell Thomas he was mistaken; instead Jesus accepted these titles. Other people in Scripture, notably Paul and Barnabas, refused to accept worship as gods (Acts 14).

*       "But about the Son he says, Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.” (Heb. 1:6-8)

*       "Therefore, God exalted him to the highest place and gave

him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Phil. 29-11)

The Trinity is a profound doctrine that must be accepted by faith. Accepting a doctrine by faith does not exclude reason, but it also means that we cannot always apply the same logic that we use in mathematics. Without the Trinity, the Christian doctrine of salvation cannot stand. Some religious groups that claim to believe in the God

The Trinity

Jesus Is co-equal with God the Father. People who may use the following arguments and verses. date back to Arius, AD 319.) verses wrongly used to teach that Christ was created

1:15: If Christ is "the first born of all creation,"

was he created?

It cannot mean that Christ was created, it says that all of creation was made in and for

Him, Jesus Christ… he exists before all creations.

Colossians 1:16 For in Him all things were created, things ...

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. for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father we come in Jesus our Redeemer and our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity… Lord Jesus Messiah, 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.

Mary and Joseph were turn away from the Inn, and ended up in a stable, the birthplace of the King of kings and Lord of lord and is God.

     It’s CHRISTMAS and it is in Christ ‘Alone’, yes! in Him alone that we have Grace…

Merry Christmas…

Today as we celebrate the birth of the Messiah… The angels brought the Good News:

Unto you is born this day in the city of David…

Keep remembering the Privileges God gave us.  Stand-up and tell it to others….

Text: Philippians 4: 4-9 (NKJV)

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again, I will say, rejoice!

Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.

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 understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Meditate on These Things

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

Here what to Tell and shout it out from the mountain tops…

Philippians 2 New International Version (NIV)

Imitating Christ’s Humility

2 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in very nature[a] God,

    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;

7 rather, he made himself nothing

    by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,

    being made in human likeness.

8 And being found in appearance as a man,

    he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—

        even death on a cross!

9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place

    and gave him the name that is above every name,

10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,

    to the glory of God, the Father. (End of Text)

Today as many congregations gather to worship the Lord… let us come let every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Remember that the love of God that radiates to us this Christmas Day should be shared with many and to Imitate Christ’s Humility… and do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

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 |

Let Praise our Lord… Jesus the Great ‘I AM’ King of kings, Lord of lords and our Redeemer…

Job 19:25 I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he ...

I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth. ... For
I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth. ... 

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 Your Holy Name, Lord theyShall be saved.

Tuesday: December 24th, 2019

The little Town of Bethlehem was buzzing with the Joy of Jesus’ birth. It is amazing that God in His Majesty came as a babe, who was placed in a feeding trough.

We wrote about the ideal gift you would like for Christmas… Yes, its there waiting to be received by you. All you have to do is claim it, and it is yours to keep, and there are no transfer fee or tax to be paid.

It is a ‘Priceless’ Gift’ unique and cannot be purchased, but you and we are privileged to receive this unique Gift. Yes, God sent Jesus who brought this gift on the first Christmas day. As declared…

Luke 2:11

For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Commentary:

Our Lord needs nothing from us, except our Love and in exchange for this; He offered Ever-Lasting Life.  What a ‘Gift’.

Our Lord is a loving God, but He is also a God of a Consuming Fire…  We need to know this; and because He loves us, He wants only the best for us… What is the best? His Grace and His Love, so why is the Bible saying that the Fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom?  Because to not fear Him and to continue to sin, we are mocking our Lord. 

On this Christmas day our Lord Jesus came into this world from the splendor of His Kingdom, as said… for our sake He became poor.  Now you may be confused as many sermons preach that for our sake Jesus became poor, and if He was poor how could He help you?  His poverty was ‘Our’ baggage that He received; and at the Cross He took all of our baggage (Sins) and it was nailed to the Cross… Christ actually ‘Died’ at the moment of His saying, My Lord, My Lord… why have Your forsaken Me” this was the moment that our Sins were Divinely taken away as His Blood of Atonement was shed for us. Is Jesus still Poor?  Absolutely NOT… His Divine Resurrection was His Victory over this world, His Resurrection to Life (never repeated by anyone) proved His Supremacy, His Sovereignty, and our God Incarnate as Jesus is God with us…

As Jesus said…”it is Finished” the temple division was torn revealing our High-Priest, and by this, we are able to come to Jesus ‘The’ CHRIST.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

  1. Factually our Lord is not asking for your love because of fear of Him. He said, “If we love Him, keep His commandments” Just like when He came, He came as a Man and not as a King or as God Incarnate.

  1. The angel did make known… 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.”

  1.  1 John 3:22 and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.

  1. 1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome.

Hebrews 13:5 

Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,”

 Philippians 4: 6: Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4: 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4: 19 & 20 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20 Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Prayer… Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord Jesus we thank You for the privilege of serving and for our Visitors, as we seek Your Divine Providence upon us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

The year went by in a flash… can you imagine that the new car that you bought in 2010 is now 10 years old? And your kid born in 1990 is now 30 years old? Or if you were born in 1990 you are now 30 years old. Buy do not worry, God is in charge…

As Scripture said…

Mark 13:20 New Living Translation

In fact, unless the Lord shortens that time of calamity, not a single person will survive. But for the sake of his chosen ones he has shortened those days.

Burdens are lifted at Calvary…

Psalm 68:19

Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.

Jesus said…” Matthew 11:28

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest

Matthew 11: 28 “Come to me,(AG) all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.(AH) 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,(AI) for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.(AJ) 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

Here’s your carefree moment…

1 Peter 5:7

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Philippians 4:6

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:5-7 (in Context) Philippians 4 (Whole Chapter)

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

            Giving thanks... make a special place for God’s greatest Gift.

O Holy Night is my favorite Christmas Carol… This Carol always recall that God in His Majesty, our Creator came as Jesus-Yeshua for one reason to Redeem us. For many that cannot understand why we need Redemption, it is difficult for them to understand why they need to be Redeemed.

If they do not believe that it all started in the Garden of Eden, then it is hard to enlighten them.

Chronological teaching is a method that theologians must adopt…

Just like a good chef, he or her begin by giving some background on the origin of the dish being prepared. This, plus the gathering of the ingredients and how to blend it all together and then cook up a great entrée. So, Knowing how we got here is important to the unenlightened, and the chronological background will shed some light about why one must be saved.  Once he is enlightened by the chronological sequence that he or she is a part of what took place in the Garden of Eden, this will set the stage for that person to realize that we just didn’t happen. Our Creator made us in His likeness, and as such, we will never die. But just like our fore-parents Adam and Eve sinned, we being off-springs, inherited that blemish of Sin. In a future article we will discuss…how can I be an offspring when I am of another ethnic origin? We will address this in the coming month.

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…

Coming to the Lord:

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, let the principle of ’I shall decrease, and He must increase in life' prevail. So that I might know Jesus and proclaim Him to all to be intimately connected to Christ; He Jesus to be pre-eminent in my life;

Philippians 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

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 (NKJV) 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 You Lord Jesus Christ who gave Yourself a ransom for us all.  Lord let Your Holy Spirit be indwelling in us as we go in Faith.  Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your favors. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

          God’s greatest was given to us, how did you receive His Gift?

We wrote about the son that was asked by his dad…” Son, what would you like to receive for your college graduation? He said, I have been admiring the car that the dealer has in the showroom. His dad said… so be it.  The day of the graduation came, and the son came home and there was no car, only a Bible with a ribbon tied around it, laying on his bed. The son was so disappointed and stormed out of the house and never returned. A few months went by and his family sent a message and said, “hurry home your dad is gravely ill”, he came home but it was too late his dad had died earlier. The boy wondered into his old bedroom, the Bible was still there with the ribbon, he untied it and open it; and in the Bible was the title to the car he wanted.

So, the gift from Jesus may appear like the Bible, a gift of Grace that is a life of a binding love of the Lord, many may say I don’t want to be a Christian because they do not have fun.

They may even think that being a follower of Christ, it is because Christians need a ‘crutch’ that will aid them in their daily lives.  No, it’s not a crutch, it is the Grace. And His Grace is more than anything we can ever gain, and most certainly, we cannot gain it on our own.

So, open the Bible and be surprised… His Providence will overwhelm you.

Coming to our Lord:  Are you ready to be named as a ‘Joint-Heir’ a co-owner of His Kingdom?

Let’s us receive His ‘Priceless-Gift’ right now you can be named in the Lamb’s book of life… This is the book that will be opened as described in…

Revelation 21:27

and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.Revelation 21:26-27 (in Context) Revelation 21 (Whole Chapter)

Now one may say if there are billions of people in this book, how long it will take for my name to be called.  We must stop to think, that in the Heavenly realms of our Creator, our DNA is not described in one paragraph, it takes a whole hard drive of a computer and more to decipher the composition of our DNA, or just one Cell of our bodies. 

So, our limited brainpower is always an impediment to us coming to our Lord and simply accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior. This is too simplistic, as humans we may question this Divine Power of our Lord to save us and declaring us to be Born-Again.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus today we Praise You for Your Graciousness and to You Lord we look forward to that day when we shall see You Lord. Lord thank You for Your assurance that those in You Lord will not see condemnation as You have condemned sin in the flesh, Lord in humility we recognize that you who knew no sin bore our sins and substituted Yourself for us so that we could be saved by your Blood. Lord in awe we come, and we humbly acknowledge that You our Supreme Eternal Savior is God in One of the Father and all things are possible in your Lord. We thank you for our Visitors and the privilege of serving You and we give you first place and to you lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Are you ready for Christmas? A joyful time to share the greatest GIFT ever.

Christmas is a time of Joyful celebration. It is as the message…

“Behold, I bring you good tiding of great Joy”

            The Most precious gift �� nothing compares…

Yesterday we wrote about the ideal gift you would like for Christmas… Yes, it’s there waiting to be received by you. All you have to do is claim it, and it is yours to keep, and there are no transfer fee or tax to be paid.

It is a ‘Priceless’ Gift’ unique and cannot be purchased, but you and we are privileged to receive this unique Gift. Yes, God sent Jesus who brought this gift on the first Christmas day. As declared…

Luke 2:11

For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

In Context | Full Chapter 

‘A Savior’ …  Only the best for you and you are worth it.  Jesus said this, and it is the truth…

Commentary:

Our Lord needs nothing from us, except our Love and in exchange for this He offered Ever-Lasting Life.  What a ‘Gift’

Our Lord is a loving God, but He is also a God of a Consuming Fire…  We need to know this; and because He loves us, He wants only the best for us… What is the best? His Grace and His Love, so why is the Bible saying that the Fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom?  Because to not fear Him and to continue to sin, we are mocking our Lord.  How would you like to be told by someone that you are a good and reliable person, and behind your back this person slanders you and tells everyone the opposite and say that you are no good and you are not trustworthy?  The person slandering you probably do not fear you nor really loves you, as this ‘friend’ would not be really a friend indeed, rather he is your enemy.

Our Lord wants a ‘Sincere relationship, and sincerity is achieved only by a true relationship without any infidelity or action that will blemish the relationship, in other word let’s not attempt to Mock God, as He said, He will not be mocked… as Vengeance is His.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

 
Factually our Lord is not asking for your love because of fear of Him. He said “If we love Him keep His commandments” Just like when He came, He came as a Man and not as a King or as God Incarnate, The angel did make known… 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.”
 
 1 John 3:22 and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. 1 John 3:21-23 (in Context)
 
1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome.

As we cope with the daily things in our lives, some are challenging, and some are pleasant to experience.  Despite what we see around us, the growing rate of scoffers, substance abusers, crime and even human-trafficking, these will end on that fateful day, ‘The Day of the Lord’ but through Jesus our Lord we have Victory and He has provided a way for those who trust in Him, know Him and by accepting Him as our Savior, He has laid a way for the Best is yet to come.

So, today we come to our Lord knowing that only the Future that he offers is worthy of being owned. He had endowed this to each of us….

Text:

Hebrews 13:5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

 Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,”

 Philippians 4: 6: Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4: 13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4: 19 & 20 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20 Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Prayer… Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord Jesus we thank You for the privilege of serving and for our Visitors, as we seek Your Divine Providence upon us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

        Jesus said we are worth more than the birds… Our Happiness is deserved.

Jesus who is God… as He sees us from the inside out, what did He see in Saul?

As Saul was stuck on his way to Damascus which he was armed with warrants and breathing fire on his journey to capture Christians for persecution.

Yet, the Lord saw something in Saul that made the Lord chose this violent man. Maybe it was the dedication of how Saul with a vengeance persecuted Christian? We read that it was Saul who later was known as Paul was holding the clothes of those stoning Stephen to death. Was Saul at that time had a hand in the stoning of Stephen? We also read that Stephen asked Jesus to forgive those who were killing him.

In analyzing the events, we know of the Damascus road trip experience that transformed Saul from a violent persecutor of Christian to be one of the great apostles of Christ who said….” I am not ashamed of the Gospel”

Romans 1:16 New International Version
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.

How could Jesus make this choice of choosing Saul to be the dedicated vessel carrying the message of salvation?  My opinion is… The Lord will not choose a wishy-washy half-hearted person, a poser or a superficial person. So, He chose Saul because of his dedication, and once Saul was transformed, he became the most dedicated bearer of the message of Salvation in Christ.

The event of Stephen who looked up as saw Jesus… here we saw Stephen in his last moment of peril asking Jesus to ‘Forgive’ his killers. Stephen knew that forgiving those that trespass against you was a criterion set forth by God…

As said in the Lord’s Prayer… “Forgive us of our trespass as we forgive those that trespass against us”. So, we saw; Stephen asking Jesus to forgive those putting him to death.

Finally, it is from the inside that the Lord sees us, and in Saul’s heart even when he was a persecutor of Christian, Jesus saw the dedication and when transformed Saul would be a dedicated servant.

And Stephen forgiving his enemy and asking Jesus to forgive those who were his persecutors.

We read the teaching of Paul almost daily, and Paul’s intimate walk with Jesus was created in a bond that was a moment (The Damascus Road experience) that is not normally experienced by us. As Paul, said…” I know of a man that was caught up to Paradise.  I can only assume, he met the Savior in person. Maybe Jesus was calling him to the throne to give Saul the full insight of the Glory of God. As Paul said he saw things that he could not speak about.

Friends…  there’s so much we do not know, and for those that need to see everything in black and white, we say, without faith, we cannot please God.

Hebrew 11: 6 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

If anyone that is seeking all the answers to life and the Divine power of the Lord, as said… man speaking to God, “God I can take this fruit make is into a larger specie, seedless and more resistance to pest”. So, God said… “start with your own dirt, water, seeds and air, and incidentally stop using the air that you breathe because I created all of them. Let me see how you can do anything without me or what I have created”.

Trust in the Lord and lean not on our own understanding.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; Proverbs 3: 5

 There is a reason for this statement, and it is because He is God and we are not.

Psalms 46:10… He says, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

Ω by… Maurice Hoo, www.goodnewsforever.org  

Prayer:

Lord Jesus today as we celebrate the season of Advent, we acknowledge You as God among us. Lord let this be a ChristMas, as You Lord came for the masses and we say just like Paul that we are not ashamed of the Gospel. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all You Divine Providence in Your Holy Name we pray, to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen

2 Corinthians 12   NIV Paul’s Vision and His Thorn

  1.  I must go on boasting. Although there is nothing to be gained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. 2. I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows. 3. And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows— he was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell.

    How can a little bird fly 500 Miles per day for winter and return home? Flying

4,000 miles. A Hummingbird weighs only 0.16 Oz. Amazing they retrace their journey each year.

The sovereignty of the Lord… Jesus the ‘great I Am’ as He said… “I Am HE” the entire contingent of Roman soldiers fell like dominoes. In the garden when He was betrayed by Judas who led the band of soldiers (a contingent consists of 300 soldiers).

You will read in the Bible this statement.

John 21:25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of ...

... There are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they would all be written,
I suppose that even the world itself wouldn't have room for the books ... 

This statement may sound illogical, as the world is a big place, imagine

 the world being full of books and more books. You may say how could this be? Stop and think, how many galaxies and planets are there? Billions and billions, and Jesus is the creator of it all, He knows every one of them by names, He made us all unique with unique fingerprints, voiceprints, unique eyes pupils and even the smallest living thing that reacts to fear. Have you ever stepped on an Ant nest? Why do they scatter? They are reacting the intrusion on their territory. So, when we see a hummingbird able to fly 4,000 miles to their winter home, and then fly home and return again next winter. These minute details and the millions of species, the earth’s composition of minerals, the regular dirt underfoot, consist of all essentials things that we are surrounded by: iron, aluminum, pottery, minerals and essential supplements for our health, and from the earth, we get our food, timber, cement, gold and silver, etc. so how many volumes of books would it take to catalog the creation of the Lord? Untold pages.

  1. The supercomputer that measures the speed of processing is not bytes, it is Petaflop (a unit of computing speed equal to one thousand million million (1015) floating-point operations per second)

and beyond.

There so much we mere humans do not know, so remain calm and know that Jesus is God…

As we experience this season of Advent, let us know and share that, Jesus Immanuel… this means; “God with us?  

So, the next time you see an ant, just thing that they too are part of God’s creation.

O Praise His Name…

Prayer:

Lord Jesus as we celebrate the season of Advent and affirm that You came as God with us... Lord we are in AWE that You came to be our Redeemer. Lord we thank you for Your graciosness and Lord we affirm You as God in One of the Holy Trinity. Lord bless our Visiots and grant us all Your Divine Providence. In Your Holy Name Lord Jesus we pray... Amen.

        A wish is a hope, and hope is believing in something that is not real, but when done

in faith, all things are possible in the Name of our Lord Jesus…

Do this…     Giving Thanks and in Faith believe that our requests have been heard and granted, Jesus said this.

Mark 11:23 

Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. In Context 

Remember…    Never brag about tomorrow, the future belongs to the Lord, and it is by His will we have tomorrow.

2 Timothy 3:2

For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, In Context 

James 4:13

Do Not Boast About Tomorrow ] Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit

Luke 12:19 And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.”

Luke 12:18

So, he said, ‘I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build greater, and there I will store all my crops and my goods.

James 4:16

But now you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.

Here’s what we can ‘Boast’ about…

Galatians 6:14

But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

2 Corinthians 12:9

And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

Commentary: One could say that the most precious thing in our life is life itself.  This could be the most precious thing we possess, but what is life? It is just a vapor… James 4:14

Whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. James 4:13-15 (in Context) James 4 

The famous comedian Rodney Dangerfield once said, “I am so old, so I do not buy green bananas” But Jesus said… “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” John 15: 5 NKJV

Today we have the assurance of the faithfulness of our Lord… “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God”.  Philippians 15: 5

Because God loved us so much that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life… John 3: 16

His Promise:

John 14: 1-3 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

You are complete in Christ, knowing that Jesus is that precious Pearl that Bible revealed…

Matthew 13:46

Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

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.

        If you had one wish, what would it be? Ask God, not Santa…

When God doesn’t answer… Your request has not been granted, why?

God hears all petitions, and even those from a child. We may think that a child may ask for simple things or even silly things.

So, as a child sitting on Santa’s lap when asked by Santa… “Little girl what would you like for Santa to bring to your house?” the little girl said… I want my mom to be well, she is sick.  A little boy next in line, when he got to Santa, he was asked,” little boy, what would you like from Santa?” The little boy said… I want my dad to find a job as we are in need.

Some adult request is not answered as the Bible said…

James 4:3

You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.

In Context | 

But when you ask in the Name of Jesus, His response will be received, the answer may come in a different form from your request. This is because God know best and what we have need of. Because He said….

In our time of need He will be there…

Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. In Context 

Luke 11:9

Keep Asking, Seeking, knocking] “So I say to you, ask, and it will be givento you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. In Context

Good News:  God will give us more than we deserve.

Commentary:  Just like when God told Moses that he was not allowed to cross into the Promised Land, Was God denying Moses the reward after Moses spent 40 years leading his people to Canaan? It certainly appeared unfair, but in Matthew we see Moses and Elijah appearing to Jesus at the Transfiguration.  Therefore, Moses was taken directly to Heaven and was not left at Mt. Pisgah.

Our God is not only a God of Love, He is a God with a sense of humor, just think of how God jammed the wheels of the chariots driven by Pharaoh’s soldiers chasing the Israelite crossing the Red Sea…  

Exodus 14:25 (NIV)

25 He jammed the wheels of their chariots so that they had difficulty driving. And the Egyptians said, “Let’s get away from the Israelites! The Lord is fighting for them against Egypt.”

Imagine the enormity of Moses ’daily routine, leading a nation on foot, a nation without a country.  Moses had 603,550 armed men for war if all those men were living at the time (Numbers 1:46). These were all able-bodied men from the age of twenty (Numbers 1:45) to the age of retirement at year fifty (Numbers 4:3; John 8:57) or sometimes sixty (Leviticus 27:7). Assuming all the women, children and older people over fifty (or sixty) are included, the number of Israelites who left Egypt would have numbered about two and a half million.

Moses led these ‘stiff-necked’ people for 40 years, a nation on foot going to a country that they were going to inhabit and how wonderful should this be when they get there.  But the good times in the Promised-land were full of travesties and disappointments because of wayward-living.  Again, we see the similarity of God settling humans in a land of ‘Milk & Honey’ and we squandered it all, which is an earlier event of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

Are you in your own land of ‘Milk & Honey’ today? Are you focused on the precepts of the Lord?  Have you tried what Jesus said? He said; “Seek Him and His Righteousness first”. 

The Lord made a ‘Covenant’ that no weapon formed against my people shall prosper.

Isaiah 54:17

No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.

As we go today a Monday starting the week, we have the assurance of our Lord that He not only promised good things for those who loves Him, but He promised to keep you till that day when you shall see Him. Just do as he said…

Matthew 6:33-34 (NKJV)

33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

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.

Devotionals for Sunday December 15th, 2019

                                                     

Many philanthropists say they are giving back to society and they make it known, Tax Credit is all they will ever receive, because Jesus said this in Matthew: 1-4

There are large philanthropists doing good things with their money. Some are well-meaning in their gifting, and some are just giving to ‘get’.   So how does one give to ‘get’? they seek fame, public recognition and this is a form of boasting.

The greatest philanthropist is our Almighty God… He created all things and gave dominion over all to us humans.  Then He gave us His Son, Jesus Emanuel who is God with us.

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.”

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.

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.

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.

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,

Commentary:

Our Lord Jesus is full of compassion, in fact as we read of Jesus’ association with His Disciples, He expressed more than brotherly love for them… He was their leader, their protector, their mentor and above all their Savior.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Our God is a God of Second Chance… He is there with open arms to welcome us home, provided we come in Faith and trust in Him.   Faith is a total belief in something that is unseen, and His Grace will be given to us when we come to Him. Grace is something that is totally un-deserved, and it is a divine gift from our Lord. We can get a ‘Grace period’ of 10 days when our phone bill is due, but you must ask for it. Our Lord Paid for our Sins and by His Blood of Atonement we have His Redemption.  Come to Him and declare Victory in Christ today…

Prayer: Father in Heaven, by the Grace of our Lord Jesus we come knowing that You our Lord Jesus rose triumphantly, and You Lord Jesus sits on the Throne of Righteousness and by Your Blood of Atonement we are saved. Your Divine Grace and Your Eminence and Sovereignty were revealed as You came to Redeem us. Lord we acknowledge that You were there at the beginning as You were the Light declared by the Father…” Let there be Light”, Lord Jesus today in Faith we seek You and open our hearts to you so that your Holy Spirit will come and by Your Grace we will be Sealed with Your Blood of Atonement, looking to that day Lord when we shall see You as You are. Lord bless our Visitors and let Your Peace be with us. In Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, we pray and give You the Power and the Glory, now and forevermore… Amen.

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.”

Know this… You are unique, there’s no one like you in this wide world. Why? Your DNA is the fingerprint of who you are.

Just like your actual fingerprint, your DNA fingerprint is something you are born with, it is unique to you. The first step of DNA fingerprinting was to extract DNA from a sample of human material, usually blood. Molecular ‘scissors’, called restriction enzymes, were used to cut the DNA.

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.

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.

Romans 14:20

Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All things indeed are pure, but it is evil for the man who eats with offense.

1 Corinthians 12:11

But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations

2 Corinthians 9:8

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

Galatians 3:10

The Law Brings a Curse] For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.”

Ephesians 1:11

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,

Philippians 3:21

who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.

2 Timothy 4:5

But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

Titus 2:7

in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility,

The Sovereignty of the Lord and His mighty Power of His magnificent creation, us humans, He loved us so much that Jesus who is Immanuel God with Us, He came and died in our place. But He conquered death by His Divine Resurrection to Live Everlasting.

As we end the week, let us Parise Him and be in Awe of His Majesty, His Love and as we adore Him, let us in Faith know Him and let Him be Known.

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.

Be Blessed today… It is more gratifying to give than to receive.  By giving you are privileged; to receive you may be in need.

There are many instances of the Giver receiving back something that he could never attain, we see this in the action of Boaz who instructed his farm hands to give to…  Ruth 2:15 (Suggested reading, click here In Context | Full Chapter |

As she got up to glean, Boaz gave orders to his men, “Let her gather among the sheaves and don’t reprimand her.

Boaz gave and he received in return Ruth as his wife.  This was not by accident, as the lineage of Christ came through Boaz-Ruth to Jesse the father of David, and the genealogy of Jesus is through the Boaz-Ruth… Matthew 1: 2-16 Boaz had Obed (Ruth was the mother),
Obed had Jesse, Jesse had David, and David became king.

Down the line…

  Jacob had Joseph, Mary’s husband,

    the Mary who gave birth to Jesus,

    the Jesus who was called Christ.

17 There were fourteen generations from Abraham to David,

    another fourteen from David to the Babylonian exile,

    and yet another fourteen from the Babylonian exile to Christ.

Jacob had Joseph, Mary’s husband,

    the Mary who gave birth to Jesus,

    the Jesus who is Christ – Emanuel.

Looking at the outcome of Boaz’s kindness to Ruth and the outcome of the lineage leading to Joseph and Mary to the birth of the Messiah. 

Example of recognizing that we have nothing to give to the Lord, because is all came from Him…

David’s Prayer

10 David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly, saying,

“Praise be to you, LORD, the God of our father Israel, from everlasting to everlasting.
11 Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
    for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.

12 Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.

13 Now, our God, we give you thanks,
    and praise your glorious name.

14 “But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.15 We are foreigners and strangers in your sight, as were all our ancestors. Our days on earth are like a shadow, without hope. 

16 Lord our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you. 17 I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity. All these things I have given willingly and with honest intent. And now I have seen with joy how willingly your people who are here have given to you. 18 Lord, the God of our fathers Abraham, Isaac and Israel, keep these desires and thoughts in the hearts of your people forever, and keep their hearts loyal to you. 19 And give my son Solomon the wholehearted devotion to keep your commands, statutes and decrees and to do everything to build the palatial structure for which I have provided.”

20 Then David said to the whole assembly, “Praise the Lord your God.”

So, when we recognize that all things are from the Lord, then as good stewards we shall be entrusted with much…

2 Corinthians 9:8

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations

Heavenly Father Creator of Heaven and Earth and us all whom You have given dominion over all things, Lord yet we have breached Your command. Lord Jesus because of Your Grace we are presented to the Father and made righteous by Your Atoning Blood. Lord just as the day of Passover, today You have prepared us all for the final Passover, and by your Grace we shall see You Lord. Lord Jesus we than You and seek Your blessings on our Visitors and us all, to You Lord is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore. Amen.

Get this… Find His Peace today and let nothing deter you with the Joy of the Lord, share it. His Peace lasts forever…

His Peace is ‘Shatter-proof’ nothing can deter you from having the Joy of knowing the Lord.

Do not ‘Blend-In’ – Shine by Being a child of LIGHT

Thoughts for today: To Reject Christ is to be condemned, to receive Christ there will be no condemnation

TEXT: Romans 8: 1 There is no condemnation now for those who live in union with Christ Jesus.

The Scriptures outlined…:  "He that believeth on Him is not condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the Name of the only begotten Son of God" (John 3:18).   An infant is not capable of rejecting Jesus Christ.   An infant is incapable of committing the sin mentioned in John 16:9.

 Although the Bible does not specifically declare that infants who die will go to heaven, there is a weight of Biblical evidence which points in this direction.  We can safely say that  infants who die will be safe in the arms of Jesus and will spend eternity with Him in heaven.

Some reasons are as follows:

1.  The Lord Jesus Christ died for all of Adam's race (for all mankind), including every infant that has ever been born.   Consider the following study:  For Whom Did Christ Die?  

2.  A person is condemned for rejecting Jesus Christ and for refusing to believe in Him:  "He that believeth on Him is not condemned; but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the Name of the only begotten Son of God" (John 3:18).  An infant is not capable of rejecting Jesus Christ.   An infant is incapable of committing the sin mentioned in John 16:9.

3.  Those who go to hell in 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9 are those who have deliberately disobeyed the gospel by refusing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.  Infants have not willfully disobeyed the gospel.   Note:  The heathen, who are not under the hearing of the gospel, are condemned for rejecting the lesser revelation that God has given to them (Rom. 1:20-21, etc.). For a detailed study of this see Romans chapter 1.  But an infant would also be incapable of rejecting this lesser revelation.

4.  Revelation 20:11-15 indicates that all of the unsaved are resurrected to appear before the Great White Throne, and twice it is stressed that each will be judged according to their works. It is doubtful that young infants are included in this evaluation.  What evil works has a 6-month-old baby committed?

5.  Consider the compassionate heart of God for those who are lost:  "Who will have all men to be saved and to come unto the knowledge of the truth" (1 Tim. 2:4--this is God's desire).  "Not willing that any should perish" (2 Pet. 3:9).  "Even so it is not the will of your Father, who is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish" (Matt. 18:14).  "I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked" (Ezekiel 33:11).  While these verses do not refer specifically to infants, they do teach us that the loving and merciful heart of our God desires the salvation of all men.

6. King David had a child by Bathsheba which died in infancy. David's words are significant: "While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, Who can tell whether GOD will be gracious to me, that the child may live?  But now he is dead, why should I fast? Can I bring him back again?  I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me" (2 Samuel 12:22-23).  

Quoted from an article published by George Zeller, 10/08 The Middletown Bible Church, CT, USA

There is a story of an English citizen arrested in a south American country some years ago. This man was to face the firing squad, when the order was given to fire, the English consul suddenly ran forward and covered the man with the British flag, and then on the other side came the American consul and covered him with the American flag, this resulted in the man not being shot and released to the British consul for protection.

Just like the Blood of the Lamb during the Passover in Egypt that protected the first-born Israelite, once we have been cleansed by the Atoning Blood of Christ, then we are safer than being behind the English or American flags

Prayer:

Father we come in Jesus our Savior our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity, Lord Jesus today take the reins of our lives, keep us on the narrow pathway to Your Kingdom by Your Grace.  Bless our Visitors, Lord grant to our visitors your Grace and Your peace and let Your Word be absorbed for Your Glory Lord.  We thank You for the privilege of serving, and we Pray that Your favors will be released upon all calling upon You and To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Devotionals for Wednesday:  December 11, 2019

Water is Life…         Water is mentioned 636 times in the Bible, we are made up of 60% water, so without it we cannot exist…

And in Christ we have an eternal Spring that quenches our thirst forever… as He will lead you to Green Pastures and Still water.

Can we imagine the pristine water flowing in the Garden of Eden? Take a look at the rivers and many sources of water today, would you drink any without it being treated? Certainly not.  But there will be a fountain flowing where we can…

Principle: He is Faithful, and He said… Eden will be Restored

Revelation 22:

22 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.

Come and let us reason together…

Will Sinners be allowed in Heaven?  Yes, will an enemy of God be allowed in Heaven? No, what is the difference?

Text:  Acts 4:12

Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Commentary: To be a member of the Secret Service you must be considered a loyal person, while one could ‘fake’ it and be a mole, it is impossible for anyone to assimilate into the body of Christ without Faith in Him. Faith cannot save you, but it is the ‘Testing barometer’ by which our Lord can see the inner you.  Only His Grace can Save us.

The unforgivable sin is… Matthew 12:31

[The Unpardonable Sin] “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.

Unless we Surrender and be ‘True’ to our Lord Jesus, even in our sinful state Jesus will receive us when we commit it all to Him. Remember our Lord do not want or need anything from us, all He wants is our Faithfulness, no deceit, falsehood, posing or posturing can make us whole, only in Him we can be made ‘whole’ So with our Lord Jesus we cannot fake-it by repackaging ourselves

Our Lord Jesus is like the scanner at the Airport, but even at these scanners one can still beat the machines. With God who created us, He already knows that our ‘Righteousness is like a ‘filthy rag’, this is quite insulting, as you say I just came out of the shower I was at the Spa all day and I am rejuvenated?  Yes, you are unacceptable, the Lord’s Scanner will set of an alarm, because without His Blood of Atonement, we are blemished.

Jesus Paid-It-All, and His Blood of Atonement is the SEAL of His Righteousness that He gives us when we come to Him and accepts His Redemption. The Good News is… Jesus Christ rose Triumphantly, and He Lives and because He lives, we shall also life with Life-Everlasting in His Kingdom of Splendor.

Ephesians 2:4-10 New King James Version (NKJV)

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 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. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:4 In Context | Full Chapter |

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus take this day and let it be a day filled with Your peace and lead us to Green pastures and by Still Waters. As we go let us be a blessing to all in our path… Lord Bless our Visitors, thank you for Your Grace and Your Divine Redemption. We give you first place in all things, and Lord your Providence is evidenced by Your Love Lord. We pray in your Holy Name Lord Jesus to you is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Devotionals for Tuesday:  December 10th, 2019

Living a life that you never believe could be, a high esteem one or a low esteem one? With Christ, it’s high…

Where do you think our daily challenges are from? The Government, people, business, schools, or society at large? Most certainly it isn’t from the Lord… Because He said He would smooth our pathways.

 Luke 3:5

Every valley shall be filled And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough ways smooth;

So, God’s words of assurance can be relied upon, and through His enrichment we are able to take the high road and be filled with His Holy Spirit giving us a life of high esteem to be His ambassadors.

2 Corinthians 5:20

Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

Example of an ambassador…

So, as an ambassador representing the Almightiest God, through His Son Jesus, are you fulfilling your key role? What is your key role? it is not just ‘coasting; till the Lord takes you home, it is not sitting waiting for that eventful day, which is the day you meet the Lord.  He made us to be ‘Fruitful and multiply… and this is done through “Knowing Christ and making Him known”

Remember the story told of…

The Parable of the Minas

11 Now as they heard these things, He spoke another parable, because He was near Jerusalem and because they thought the kingdom of God would appear immediately. 12 Therefore He said: “A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and to return.13 So he called ten of his servants, delivered to them ten minas, and said to them, ‘Do business till I come.’ 14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We will not have this man to reign over us.’

15 “And so it was that when he returned, having received the kingdom, he then commanded these servants, to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 16 Then came the first, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned ten minas.’ 17 And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant; because you were faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities.’18 And the second came, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned five minas.’ 19 Likewise he said to him, ‘You also be over five cities.’

20 “Then another came, saying, ‘Master, here is your mina, which I have kept put away in a handkerchief. 21 For I feared you, because you are an austere man. You collect what you did not deposit and reap what you did not sow.’ 22 And he said to him, ‘Out of your own mouth I will judge you, you wicked servant. You knew that I was an austere man, collecting what I did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow. 23 Why then did you not put my money in the bank, that at my coming I might have collected it with interest?’

24 “And he said to those who stood by, ‘Take the mina from him, and give it to him who has ten minas.’ 25 (But they said to him, ‘Master, he has ten minas.’) 26 ‘For I say to you, that to everyone who has will be given; and from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. 27 But bring here those enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, and slay them before me.’”

Jesus was born a King…

John 18:37

Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this because I was born, and for this because I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

But, even as a King, Jesus came to serve and not to be served…


So, are we serving in His Name?  Take the ‘High-Road’ bring the Good News to many, and as Jesus taught… Well done, good servant; because you were faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities.

Use our talents for His Glory, walking the ‘walk’ is one talent that He has endowed, so be the Lord’s ambassador representing Him well, by asking Him to send you with His mission. Moses was 80 years old when God chose him to lead the Israelites out of bondage.

Heavenly Father today as we come and dedicate ourselves to serve You Lord, we thank You Jesus who came to serve and You Lord Jesus served us Your Divine Grace and Your Redemption. Lord Jesus thank you as we together with our Visitors come to serve You as the harvest is plenty and the workers are few.  We praise You and give You preeminence in our lives, to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Devotionals for Monday:  December 9th,  2019

Changing course… sometimes we must change direction and head in a different direction… Jesus said this… Shake the very dust off your feet.

Matthew 10:14

And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.

Every disappointment will lead to good… One of the most monumental disappointments in the Bible would be Saul’s being struck down on the road to Damascus, this led him to goodness as Jesus chose Saul to be a Vessel bringing Salvation to the world.

Today as we read the New Testament, we are reading a lot of Paul’s writing as he presented Jesus as the supreme eminent one who is God in One of the Father.

Colossians 1: 15-23 Christ’ Supremacy…(NKJV)

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 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.

Reconciled in Christ

19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.

Many things we have and use daily were accidentally discovered…

 

Penicillin
Microwave
Teflon
Cosmic radiation
Vulcanized Rubber’
Coca-Cola
Radio Activity
Ninth-century Chinese alchemists made an explosive discovery in their quest to find an elixir for eternal life. They found out the hard way that mixing salt peter, sulfur, and charcoal is not a recipe for immortality; it makes gunpowder.
 

    So, don’t become distraught by the disappointment.  Look beyond and… find the greatest treasure;

     

    The Dead Sea Scrolls contain some of the earliest known pieces of the Bible, but they might never have been found if not for a group of Arab teenagers. In 1947, a band of young Bedouin goat and sheepherders were tending their flock near the ancient city of Jericho. While looking for a lost goat, one of the boys tossed a stone into a nearby cave and was shocked to hear what sounded like a shattering clay pot. When he went in the cave to investigate, he found several jars containing a collection of ancient papyrus scrolls. these artifacts are now considered to be among the most significant archeological discoveries of the 20th century.

    Again, we refer to the Glory of the Lord, who is the Light within each of us…

    Ezekiel 1:28

     28 Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord.

    Today Jesus is calling, and He wants to save us all. Save us from what? the Wrath of God, because …” All have sinned and falls short of God’s Glory”

    Colossians 2:9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;

    Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord Jesus thank You for being our Redeemer and our Mediator as by Your Grace we have been saved and not of anything we do. Lord be with our Visitors and us all as in Your Name Lord Jesus we thank You for Your Providence, and Your Love. Lord we love You and look to that day when we shall see You Lord. To You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    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.

    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. Lord we come to Praise you and to look to You for Your guidance as we come to the time of JOY… Lord the Good News of Your coming and a day known as Christ-Mass, because You came to save the Masses of Sinners. Lord we thank You for the privilege of serving and we thank you for our Visitors coming to this site. Lord bless each and every one. Lord, let us spread the Good News of Your Advent 2019 Years ago when You came Lord, we need You, and Lord come quickly as we give You the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen

         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.
