DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Saturday February 27th, 2021

Enjoy the weekend, God made the Sunrise, the Fresh Air and His Covenant of a more Abundant Life. So, pause and know that He is God. Say ‘Thank You Lord’, Jesus is listening…

Lord Jesus… Thank You for coming as You said, You came so that we may have life and have it ‘More’ Abundantly…

Springtime will be here soon… March 20th:

  • Peoples’ Mood Improves: After a dreary winter, sunlight is the best remedy. Scientists have proven that sunlight exposure increases your body’s release of serotonin in the brain causing people to be happier. Sunlight also lessens the amount of melatonin in people during the day and increases it at night allowing for a better night’s sleep.
  • Sunlight Provides Us with Vitamins: Yes, it’s a fact. Ultraviolet B rays from the sun comes in contact with our skin and provides us with Vitamin D. This important vitamin helps strengthen bones and teeth.

Covid-19 known to be a man-made plague will probably diminish,   the Springtime and Summertime will cause extensive Vitamin D absorption by the population.  So, today as we pause and know that He (Jesus) is God. Say ‘Thank You Lord’, do this as Jesus is listening… again we say:

Lord Jesus… Thank You for coming as You said, You came so that we may have life and have it ‘More’ Abundantly…

Let’s take the initiative to share the Good-News of…

Matthew 5:45

that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Wait upon the Lord…

Isaiah 45:8

“Rain down, you heavens, from above, And let the skies pour down righteousness; Let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation, And let righteousness spring up together. I, the Lord, have created it.

But there is a kind of rain that many will not like. Nor will they sustain it…

Building on ‘Sand’ versus building on the ‘Rock’

Matthew 7:25

and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

Matthew 7:27

and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

The question is…are we there yet?

Luke 17:29

but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.

Thanks to our Faithful and Merciful Lord and Savior…  Let us be His ‘Witness’.

Acts 14:17

Nevertheless, He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.”

Prayer: Heavenly Father we thank You for Your Unconditional love, and Lord Jesus as You expressed this by Your Priceless Gift of Life by Your Divine Redemption, we thank You for life and Your covenant of a ‘More Abundant life’ as the ‘Best is Yet to Come’ because of You our Redeemer.

Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all You providence as we go in Faith. We give You our adoration and delight ourselves in You. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

The Future is Good, why? the deceivers, the murderers, thieves, and corruptions will be eliminated, How, When and Where? In God’s Kingdom. So, be sure to be there to live a Joyful life eternally. Learn how, read more…

Matthew 5:20

For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.

Ephesians 5:5

For this you know that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

What a day it will be… there will be no ‘News’ no sales commercials, no  advertising, especially pharmaceutical products, no selling or buying. Where could a place like this be?  Imagine… no new model cars, new fashions, no need to run to the store to pick up bread and milk. Could a life like this be boring, or it is a fulfilled live of leisure?

A dog’s like is pretty mundane, when you give themA life without challenges is boring - pling.com a big bone, the first thing they will do is bury it and let it age, then they will recover it and chew on it.

This is their enjoyment.

There are many opinions posted that a life without challenges is boring…  I am sure that in heaven we will have assignments or more desires to perform good things, and in the heavenly realms the challenges will be things that we desire to do, and not done ritualistically.

Today, the day started by reading my Daily Devotions, this came first.  Then make coffee. remember to put out the garbage carts, check my Emails, and then check the news or the weather.

Matthew 25:21

His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

Matthew 25:23

His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

Here we see the message from Jesus repeating the above.

James 1:12

Loving God Under Trials

Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

1 Peter 5:4

and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.

As we go through life, we do know that believers do have a radiance, and they reflect the radiance of the Lord.

Quoting Whitney Hopler… Crosswalk.com

When you pursue God with a passion, His light grows brighter in your life, reflecting His brilliance to others and drawing them toward Him, out of the darkness. Your one life may seem as small as a disco mirror ball dwarfed inside a large room filled with needy people. But when God illuminates you, you can reflect His radiance powerfully in all directions.

John 8:12

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father today we gather in Jesus to Thank You… Thank You Lord for Your Graciousness, tank You for Your Saving Grace, thank You for Your Divine Redemption and Lord we thank You for hearing our prayers.  Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Providence. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory forevermore... Amen.

Stealing from the Poor, the nation and the oppressed… Where did all the “Charity and Money to help” go? 

Most charitable organizations are good. But there are some that use the names of a worthwhile cause and take 80% to 90% of what they raise. On the other hand, when we Help in the Name of the Lord, we ourselves get as much help and blessings by sharing the goodness of our ever our faithful Provider.

The Fragrance of the Lord…

2 Corinthians 2:14-15 New King James Version (NKJV)

14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.

99+1… The ONE missing is as important as the 99, are you that One?

The ‘ONE’ missing is as important as the 99 others…  If you are the missing ‘One’ the Good News is that you are being called.

Yes, you are being called and it is time to cross that threshold into a place of serenity, with a Peace that surpasses all understanding.  Experience this Peace today by coming to the Father in Jesus who stands at the Right-hand of the Father as Jesus says… Father I present (you name here) whom I have called and by Your Grace granted through Me, I present him by My Righteousness so that he is made righteous be in Your Holy Presence.

Just acknowledge what Jesus has done for you by saying… “Lord Jesus I thanks You for calling me and I repent of my sins by Your Grace and in Faith I commit to You my life to be as a child of Yours, knowing that Your Resurrection to life as the Chosen Holy Anointed One of the Father, and by Your Supremacy my Lord I am made a joint-heir to Your Kingdom.

2 Timothy 1:9

[Jesus] who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began,

 Matthew 18:11-13 New King James Version (NKJV)

11 For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.

12 “What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek the one that is straying? 13 And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray.

John 14:26-28 New King James Version (NKJV)

26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 You have heard Me say to you, ‘I am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said,[a] ‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I.

Ephesians 2:8-9 [Full Chapter]

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.

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The Solution is…. Hebrews 7:25

Therefore, he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. Hebrews 7:24-26 (in Context) Hebrews 7 (Whole Chapter)

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

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

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

Principles:  Any method of Salvation that departs from Faith is the basis for a perversion or it is no Gospel at all.

Hebrews 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. Hebrews 11:5-7 (in Context) Hebrews 11 (Whole Chapter)

Prayer:

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

The Truth will set Free… Will the Truth set the politicians free? For some Yes, and for many No, in fact the truth could be damaging keeping them from being free.

If we knew the truth about how governments operate, we would be shocked, why? Let’s take the money that you have in your pocket, technically you made a loaned to the issuer of the Note. Why it clearly reads: Federal Reserve Note (The  paper money) However, the Paper-Money clearly states that itis a ‘Legal-Tender’. What if no one wants to accept this paper money, can you go to the federal issuer and demand back your money, yes and no, “No’ because you already have what you gave them a piece of paper. So, to get the food supply that you are trying to pay, he now wants to be paid with something real, maybe an ounce of silver, or a pig or a cow or something that is an exchange now called a Barter system.  Cryptocurrency ‘Bitcoin’ is a similar system, but difference in the sense that the ‘Blockchain’ is linked to a network of Bitcoin users, these Blockchain members have agreed to accept the Crypto currency. However, if there came a day that a member of the Blockchain say…”I won’t accept the Bitcoin” , in such an event can you redeem the money paid for the bitcoin? If you cannot sell the Bitcoin, can you go to some institution and demand a refund? The bottom-line… what backs the Bitcoin?  While the  Legal Tender the US Dollar does say…”In GOD We Trust”.

After all is said and done here, the real intrinsic value here in Only God that can be trusted.

Do not worry, the cash you have is still good and will get you the groceries, gas and pay the bills. But the truth is, we hope that the issuer of the Federal Reserve is living by the claim of...In God We Trust.  We will affirm this here and say He is the only trustworthy of all.

Prayer… Lord Jesus just as how You sent the disciples to the dock and caught the fish and retrieved the gold piece, the coin was a legal tender.  Lord we thank You for providing our needs and we know that all things are possible with You, and we can do all thing through You that strengthen us. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all your favors by Your Grace. We pray in Your Holy Name Jesus Messiah, to You be the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

Being ‘Off the Grid’ could be a good thing, and ‘off-the Air’ not watching the political rivalry and the constant battle. Being off the Grid may not be easy, but off the Air tuning out the politics is easy and healthy.

The winter storm that hit Texas and many parts of the southern USA, the loss of power and the freeze disrupted businesses and personal lives. The Grid failed as the alternative ‘Green’ energy failed.  Somehow, the event was a wakeup call to remind us mere humans that God is still in charge.

The recent article of…

First sun-dimming experiment will test a way to cool Earth

www.nature.com › news feature › article

Nov 27, 2018 — Researchers plan to spray sunlight-reflecting particles into the ... from Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, to begin planning the experiment.

Who is giving these researchers and Gates the rights to do this? To spray particle to dim the sun.  This reminded me of an incident on board a transatlantic flight when the movie projector broke. A passenger got up and asked the flight attendant if there was a ladder and a pair of pliers so that he could fix it.  He got on the little step ladder and was just about to open the panel, I got up and asked him…What is his qualification? How much did he know about fixing an aircraft appliance especially flying at 35,000 Feet? He could not answer, so I turned around and said…”Ladies and gentlemen. I saw the moving on my way over, and I knew the ending, would you like to hear it, or would you like him to mess up a vital electrical line while we are flying”? The answer was to tell the person to stop and leave the projector alone.

The recent storm was a severe winter blast. To dim the sun, then causing a change that would cause the plants and other vital vegetation to lack Chlorophyll for plant growth.  The big difference here, getting of the plane was easy, but leaving the planet is impossible. So, Harvard and Gates wanting to play God is a dangerous move.

 Just like the group building the Tower of Babel the Lord knew best and came down and stopped them. So, today we are saying…  Please God, send someone and fix the intent of dimming the sun.

Lord today as You said “Come to You like a child.”

Let us say… I am not ashamed of the Gospel:

Romans 1:16

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

Mark 8:38

If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”

Rest assured that all things are possible for those who loves the Lord…

All the intellect gained in this life will be meaningless. Jesus said we are to come to Him like a Child, and these two fundamental facts taught are the most truthful and direct, most of us learned these in Sunday school.

  1. Jesus loves me this I know because the Bible tells me so….
  2. For God so loved the World, that he gave His only begotten Son…

Come to Christ in simple faith… Trust Him and give Him Preeminence in your life, He will fulfill your desires.

Psalm 37:4

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. In Context | Full Chapter |

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come… Lord Jesus as You said, You will send us a Comforter, and Lord in You we are comforted by your Saving Grace. Lord thank You for Your Divine Redemption as we praise You and give You first-place in our lives, Thank You for our Visitors and grant us all Your Providence, To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore... Amen.

Monday February 22nd, 2021

What are you waiting for? Your ship to come in? Your rich uncle to die?, To be reunited with families? Waiting and hoping is good but Praying and believing is the only way to an abundant life, no need to wait for your uncle to die… God provides, and He restores.

Jesus taught that the ‘Meek’ shall inherit the Earth… Let us be clear, we believe Jesus was referring to the New Heaven ad the new Earth as described in Revelation…

Revelation 21:1

A New Heaven and a New Earth

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.

We want to define being ‘Meek’, this is often mistaken for weakness. Being Meek, do not mean that you must follow others, it as described by a Pastor as: ‘Power under Control’.

Jesus in the presence of Pilate and being accused by the Sanhedrin, Jesus displayed His Meekness with His Powers under control. Just before being in the presence of Pilate, we read how the Roman Soldiers fell when Jesus said…” I AM HE”

So, today following Jesus we have an abundant like, we also have a Sound Mind with Power. While we acknowledge Jesus’ statement that He came to give un an abundant Like and ‘More’ abundantly, this reinforced by His Supremacy, we can claim victory in Him.  Jesus King of kings and Lord of lords.

Never to be too busy to stop and contemplate why God endowed this Gift to us.  He gave us His Gift of Live everlasting because He loves us and because we will never die, and because we were born in Sin by heredity from our fore parents, Adam, and Eve, So, God sent His Son to Redeem us by His Blood.

John 3:16

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

Praise HIM:  Father in Heaven today we thank You in Jesus our Lord and Savior. Lord Jesus be with us and our Visitors today as we seek You and delight ourselves in You Lord. To You Lord Jesus us the Power and the Glory forever… Amen.

The Rock… He is the Rock. Matthew 16:
Peter Confesses Jesus as the Christ

13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”

14 So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not [g]prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth [h]will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

The center stage of Praise… Praise because of love, not of fear, but of Awe & Glory”.

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday February 21st, 2021

The center stage of Praise… Praise because of love, not of fear, but of Awe & Glory”.

1 Corinthians 13

The Excellence of Love

If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. ...

Here is one of God’s requests that is a hard one…

Matthew 5:43

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’

Matthew 5:44

But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

Matthew 5:46

For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?

Now let us address what Jesus said…  “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”, Jesus said loving just those who love you what reward will you gain?  What He was saying ‘Praying” and loving your enemy can win them over and therefore you have made a substantial gain.

To be able to achieve this, one must be highly respected by his enemy. That when we express our love for the enemy, the enemy will realize the wrong imposed on you have  overlooked his action againt you and it was in fact meaningless. Then the accuser will come to realize that all of his wrong doings were futile and really never affected you.  This is the same as forgiving your accusers, they will realize that all of their accusations were meaningless with no effects.

Remember the Lord said… Vengeance is His.  I can recall one of my associates interrupted a transaction with a client of mine, he did this to steal the clients. Yes, he did derail the transaction, but I forgave him, the client never did any business with him, but eventually the client returned. This was quite a few years ago, as I drive past the former home of the associate who passed away still searching for clients.  I am thankful that the Armor of God has been available, and I am given the discernment that ‘Forgiveness’ is the best prescription for a sound mind, and a ‘Sound-Mind’ is from the Lord with His power of discernment.

So today… Loving your enemy and forgiving your accuser are quite the same, and when practiced, the benefit flows back to you.

Thoughts for the week:          

Know the difference of ‘Telling’ versus ‘Teaching’.

Know the difference of ‘Loving’ versus ‘Sympathy’.

Know the difference of Forgiveness versus a Ransom-paid.

Know why God gave His Forgiveness and when we say Jesus Paid It ALL, Jesus ‘Absorbed’  the Wrath of God, our ‘debt’ is to God the Father and Jesus our Redeemer, because Jesus took our place on the Cross and died in our place, so that we may have Life-Everlasting in the presence of God.

Why did God ‘Forgive’ because when Adam sinned… we all are marked by Adam’s disobedience to God’s command. But God wanted us to be ‘Restored’. Through Jesus, the Wrath of God was removed from us by Jesus Himself drinking of the Cup of God’s Wrath.

A second chance, do you need one? It is here to be received, get it now.

He is eternal, and we can stand firm knowing that we can do all things through Him, Jesus… ‘The Christ’.

Christ was not originally a name, but a title derived from the Greek word christos, which translates the Hebrew term meshiah (Messiah), meaning “the anointed one.”

STATEMENT OF FAITH –

The Lay-Ministry of www.goodnewsforever.org is founded on the Credo of belief in Jesus The CHRIST, the Holy Anointed Son of God.  Because no one comes to the Father unless through Jesus His Son, for this reason Good-News Central is an Internet based ministry to spread THE WORD.  

The Good News is that Jesus who was written about in Isaiah 53, written 700+ years before Jesus was born in the year 0000, and Jesus is the Son of God our Creator and HE is God in One of the Holy Trinity.

We believe that the Bible is inspired by God, and No one has ever seen God… This is why our Father and Creator sent His Son Jesus who is our Redeemer and Sovereign Eternal God in One of HIS Holy Trinity…The Word Became Flesh. John 1: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 

We believe in the Ministry of our Lord Jesus, who lived and walked this earth for 33 years.

We believe Jesus came and HE was predestined to die for our sins, was crucified and rose Triumphantly, three days after, and after spending time with His Disciples for 40 days, ascended to Heaven.

We believe in His Divine Ascension Jesus spoke of His Ascension into Heaven…  John 16 Verse 28: “I came from the Father and entered the world; now I am leaving the world and going back to the Father.”

We believe in His return, John 16. Verse 16…Jesus went on to say, “In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.”

We believe in His Redemption, and by His Gift of His Redemption, Romans 8: 14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.

We believe in The Holy Spirit and by His Word that He would send us His Holy Spirit, Verse 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.” 

We believe we are continuing HIS mission, just like when Peter who denied Christ at his trial by muttering, ‘I do not know him’ to save himself, but the Lord foretold that Peter would deny Him three times before the rooster crowed, Our Lord who is Gracious still chose men like Peter, chosen as a vessel and filled with the Holy Spirit that spoke with authority on the day of Pentecost, that over 3,000 came to Jesus.

We believe that one can be saved by the Grace of God by accepting Jesus and have a personal relationship with Jesus; and like Saul who was a persecutor of the followers of Christ, that guarded the clothes of those that stoned Stephen and killed him, but the shining face of Stephen when he saw the our Lord welcoming him home, something moved Saul, and Saul was struck down and commanded by Jesus who made him to be a vessel, and Saul that became Paul is a shining example of our Lord’s Graciousness… (Not Paul’s accomplishment, as we give credit to our Lord and not to Paul, as he was just a vessel for our Lord), therefore, this ministry is not a credit to the founder but to Jesus Christ… is the Glory.

Our mission and service are provided because of the Love of Jesus that we are saved by His Grace… so we are here to take the message into the digital age with a difference.  This is a ministry that will never ask for money, and in faith we seek our daily needs by HIS Faithfulness… coming from our Lord and not by solicitations. We are inspired by Paul’s faith in Christ…

n  Reading from 2 Corinthians 2: 11 Paul’s statement and his modesty of being an unlearned speaker but Paul had the Holy Spirit that gave him the Knowledge from our Lord Jesus that chose him to be a Vessel.

n  This lay ministry is dedicated to spread the ‘Good News’ and the sponsor/founder is in faith making the  similar statement of Faith as Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians Verse 6, he was an untrained speaker, but Paul also said he had the knowledge.

n  Verse 12 is the Credo of this lay-ministry and our intention is to bring the Good-News according to the Scriptures, and not like a ‘used-car salesman’. This is one thing I admire in Paul that said in Verse 7 Was it a sin for me to lower myself in order to elevate you by preaching the gospel of God to you free of charge?

n  We believe we are not just doing ‘Good Works’ but ‘God’s Work…

Thanksgiving…

Heavenly Father we are privileged by Your Divine Grace , and You Lord Jesus… The Christ in One with the Father, we thank You for being our Redeemer. Today pray for our nation, the Church community being Oneness in You Lord Jesus. We seek Your Divine blessing on our Visitors. In Your Holy Name we pray Jesus Messiah… Amen.

The threshold of love and forgiveness… This is the basis of a solid foundation.

The Mayo Clinic published this...

If you don't practice forgiveness, you might be the one who pays most dearly. By embracing forgiveness, you can also embrace peace, hope, gratitude, and joy. Consider how forgiveness can lead you down the path of physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

What is forgiveness?

Forgiveness means different things to different people. Generally, however, it involves a decision to let go of resentment and thoughts of revenge.

The act that hurt or offended you might always be with you, but forgiveness can lessen its grip on you and help free you from the control of the person who harmed you. Forgiveness can even lead to feelings of understanding, empathy, and compassion for the one who hurt you.

Forgiveness doesn't mean forgetting or excusing the harm done to you or making up with the person who caused the harm. Forgiveness brings a kind of peace that helps you go on with life.

What are the benefits of forgiving someone?

Letting go of grudges and bitterness can make way for improved health and peace of mind. Forgiveness can lead to:

  • Healthier relationships
  • Improved mental health.
  • Less anxiety, stress, and hostility
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Fewer symptoms of depression
  • A stronger immune system
  • Improved heart health
  • Improved self-esteem

The Bible said this about Forgiveness…

Ephesians 1:7

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.

Colossians 1:14

in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.

The Joy of Forgiveness:

Romans 8:38-39 (New King James Version)

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 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.

Forgiveness is difficult
Everyone say forgiveness is a good idea until they have something to forgive
The strength to forgive.

the source of forgiveness is from faith
So we must increase our faith.


Faith is one of the most enigmatic intangible actions, but it is
the key to Power from our Lord.


Faith, Hope, Trust, & Grace are not commonly used word in
Legal documents, these are aligned to the Heavenly realms.

 Forgiveness is only real when it is rendered with sincerity
Attitude is what makes up sincerity, forgiveness without repentance is false,
Love & Forgiveness is the cornerstone of faith.

Faith in our Lord is the source of our Power from Him
The power of our Supreme God who spoke the world into
Existence can change anything in our lives.

Just ask Jesus to change the abominable things in our lives…

1.  we must make a decision
2. Must understand the need & urgency to give forgiveness
3. You cannot come to Christ unless we have forgiven all
4. You must uproot the barrier to truly forgive others
5. Forgiveness is paying a debt of someone that incurred a debt
6. Forgiveness is to forgive & to forget

The gospel is the Grace of our Lord and his Power
Mercy is of Grace
Jesus acted as a servant to us when he was a King
God is not obliged to forgive us it is by his Love that he extended His Grace
\

All sins are sin, one sin makes us a sinner, but we must know that willful sinning is persecuting Christ again and those that willfully sin may duffer His wrath as he will give you over to a Reprobate mind and treat you as Hopeless or mocking Him. God will not be mocked.

The Grace from Jesus is undeserved, and we cannot earn it
Grace is what Jesus paid for by his Blood for us

Faith is the power from our God and in His son Jesus we have redemption by his Grace that cleanse us from our sins, now and forever.

Prayer:

Thank You Lord for Your Divine Grace that is an epiphany! Lord Jesus today as we end the week and look to You for Your guidance, with Joy we say that we have forgiven all as You did forgive us. Lord let us forget the trespasses as we forgive others and remember Your Divine Forgiveness.  Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Favors. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

The Rock… He is the Rock. Matthew 16:
Peter Confesses Jesus as the Christ

13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”

14 So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not [g]prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth [h]will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Picture this… Jesus standing in front of Peter and Jesus said to Peter… You are Peter, and on you I will build My church, Jesus never said on ‘you’ I will build My church, He said on ‘this’ rock, why is the text reading on ‘This’ and not on ‘You’. Because Jesus was point to Himself and saying on ‘This’ Rock, He Jesus is the Rock.

It is evident that Jesus was clearly telling Peter you are Peter, and I am the Christ, the Rock. Jesus did go on saying that He would give ‘you’ the keys of the kingdom of heaven, again we see that Jesus said ‘you’ , and Jesus added that whatever ‘you’ bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever ‘you lose on earth will be loosed in heaven. In all instance when Jesus gestured and referred to Peter He used ‘You’ but the reference of ‘on this’ He was pointing to Himself.

Jesus is the Cornerstone as the Scriptures clearly stated that He (Jesus) is the Cornerstone…

1 Peter 2:6

Therefore, it is also contained in the Scripture, “Behold, I lay in Zion A chief cornerstone, elect, precious, and he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.” In Context | Full Chapter 

We see in this verse of 1 Peter above, it clearly states… “And he who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame.”  There is no other name given to man by which we can be saved, and this is whom we believed… Jesus Christ the only Savior.

We have said that there will be no Catholics, Presbyterians, Methodist, Anglicans, Buddhists, Moslems, or any ‘organized’ religious groups in the Kingdom of God, only those of one-category…”Born-Again” So all the ‘Rituals’ the order of worship, the Hierarchy, and leaders of the ‘church’ none of this will entitle anyone to His Kingdom. 

It is only as Jesus said… John 3:3

Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” In Context | Full Chapter |

2 Thessalonians 2:3

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, In Context | Full Chapter 

Focus on Jesus the Sole-Mediator between man and God.

1 Timothy 2:4-6New King James Version (NKJV)

who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,

Yes, we can receive His ‘Priceless-Gift’ right now and be made a Joint-Heir in Christ our Savior.

Matthew 10:32

[Confess Christ before Men] “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess (you) before My Father who is in heaven. In Context | Full Chapter 

Conclusion:

To know Christ:  Repent (Turn from your sins) and by faith receive Jesus Christ into your heart and life and follow Him in obedience as your Lord and Savior.

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

Prayer: Father we come in Jesus our Redeemer and our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity, Lord Jesus in awe we come knowing that all things were created by You as The Father Spoke and You acted in His Holy Spirit. Lord today we come to You seeking Your Divine Blessings and Your guidance, as we say that Your Hands are ‘Over’ us, and what we do. Lord today let us be good stewards of Your mission and bless our Visitors coming to this Website. We give You our Praises and Thanksgiving Lord Jesus. We pray in Your Precious Name Lord Jesus, to You are the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Wednesday February 17th, 2021

The core is the center, the base, and the foundation. If the core is rotten you cannot build on it. When the core of the Starter is bad, it cannot start the car. So rotten to the ‘Core’ is a real condemnation. Stand firm on God’s solid foundation.

The Devil would be the ‘Rotten to the core’ example as the chief of the fallen angels.

Isaiah 14:12 The Fall of Lucifer

“How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, you who weakened the nations!

Jesus said… John 8:44

You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Because of God’s Grace through Jesus our Redeemer, we are armed with the Armor of God…

Ephesians 6:10-18

The Whole Armor of God

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. ...

1 John 4:4

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

   From rag to riches and riches to rags... Thank the Lord, or: Blame yourself…

In the world of fame and fortune, the rag to riches stories is very motivating, and then conversely, the riches to rags are so poignant with many regrets.

A Riches to Rag true life event is the founder of the famous Ryder® Trucking who lost his fortune in a startup that challenged an old-line Truck rental and lost it all.

Earthly riches are temporary, while the richest man to die in 2018 French billionaire industrialist Serge Dassault, who was also a conservative politician, died in Paris on Monday, a spokesman for Dassault Group said.

The Dassault group, which his father had created, controls Dassault Aviation national newspaper Le Figaro as well as holding major stakes in Dassault Systemes and Thales and smaller stakes in several other listed French businesses.

The Falcon Business Jet is a Dassault aircraft.

 Bloomberg and Forbes reported that he was worth between $26 billion and $27 billion.

Laying up Treasures in heaven is not measured by our earthly wealth, and we cannot boast about the earthly wealth, nor can we boast about how humble we are. We can only be bold about telling others of the Redeeming Grace of our Lord Jesus.

God made us free individuals with freedom of choice, He did not want a world filled with slaves or to be more contemporary a world of zombies.

However, manning has chosen to be slaves to sin as we are inherently prone to sin. It takes more than a strong will and resistance to withstand the wiles of the devil. We require the Armor of the Lord, a shield to protect us.

Ephesians 6: 10-11

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

God empowered each of us, but we are to be good stewards of our pride, His Gifts. So,

When you know that you are more than a conqueror, it is hard to remain humble, but knowing that God made us a Joint Heir to His Kingdom, this makes us humble, because it was His Grace that made this by the unconditional love bestowed on us.

1 John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore, the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

In Context | Full Chapter (KJV)

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus we give thanks for the Love bestowed upon us. We call upon You Lord Jesus as You have claimed us and shielded us by Your promise that declared that in You Lord Jesus, we have Victory. Halleluiah, You Jesus our Messiah is our living hope. Lord bless of Visitors as we gather to give You preeminence in our lives. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus.  Amen.

The threshold of Grace – It is only by His Grace that we can cross , nothing we do can make us eligible to enter.

Ephesians 2:8-9

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

The Table of Grace is just an example of God’s abundance,

Lord as You said…   Luke 22:19 [Full Chapter]

Then he took a piece of bread, gave thanks to God, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in memory of me.”

Grace is Un-deserved… it is like getting to the gate at the airport just before they pull away the ramp to board the plane, but the crew saw you coming and waited.

Lord You have said:

John 4:14

but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

Coming to the Lord:

Isaiah 55:1

[An Invitation to Abundant Life] “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no moneyComebuy, and eat. Yes, comebuy wine and milk Without money and without price. In Context | Full Chapter 

EVENING: 

Matthew 6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Giving to the Poor and Prayer

6 “Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them; otherwise, you have no reward with your Father who is in heaven.

2 “So when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. 3 But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and savior we come… Lord today as we thank You for Your Graciousness and Your Divide Redemption, Lord Your unconditional love for us we acknowledge. Because you know our heart knowing that we are no different from those that You mentioned that sought You because of what they received. Lord we acknowledge Your Divine Grace Your Sacrifice and that it is by Your Blood of Atonement that we are saved by your Grace.  Lord as we thank You let us share it all, we thank You Lord Jesus knowing that You Lord Jesus is Sovereign and Eternal, and we thank You for our Visitors and we thank You for Your Providence. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

The threshold of Holiness – No unholy person, things, or thoughts will ever cross over.

Romans 1:4

New King James Version

concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name,

Romans 6:19

I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.

Romans 6:22

But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life.

But Christ made us His friends… John 15:15

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

Not only did He make us His friends, He made us more than Conquerors.
Romans 8:37

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

Romans 5:5

Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

1 Peter 1:16

because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

  1. Romans 5:5

Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Prayer: Father we thank You for Your Graciousness and through Jesus our Redeemer our Savior and God in One of Your Holy Trinity. Today we thank You for our Visitors and seek You Divine blessing on us all.  I know in whom we believed and am able to say by Grace being saved by Your Grace and not of anything that I do, as we cannot save ourselves and only by the Blood of Jesus are marked with the Seal of Jesus, You as our Redeemer. We pray in Your Holy name Lord Jesus, to you is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore Amen.

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday February 14,2021

A global Ambassador, this is who you are? What are your duties? Ask Jesus, He will tell you. 

Know this…  You are an ambassador of Christ in the kingdom of heaven, mightier than any country, start now…

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

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

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

Remember… it’s like watching the Game, and your team is down three point with two minutes to go, don’t get too concerned because you already know that your team did score the winning goals. So be content, be at peace and know that comes what may, noting can deter us.  His Holy Spirit is with you and will provide what you need to accomplice what it takes to get the job completed. us all…  Praise God in the Name of Jesus our Lord and Savior.

Our God is Greater, Stronger and He is Omniscient, Omnipotent and no one like HIM. He is with you every step of the way.

A famous man once said, “Although I do not want to live as Christians do, I would like to die as they do”. There is a peace knowing who you are in Christ and where you will be going.  Obviously, this is impossible as a man living without Christ cannot know that kind of peace and do not fit the requirements. You cannot please God without Faith this person will never be in the presence of God.

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

Paul who accomplished such great things, yet he was imprisoned, suffered at the hands of ‘scoffers’ but he prevailed and was ‘refined by fire’ and became 24 Karat Gold to boldly proclaim Christ Jesus as His Lord.

You have a call on your life to do that which only you can do. He will walk you through it. For he has said, 2 Peter 1:3 but if you do not know him, you will never know the joy of walking your call out with him. FREEDOM ONLY COMES THROUGH KNOWING HIM.

The most important appointment of the day is: Coming to our Lord,  today we are focused at ‘Freedom’  as we read below… Christ our Redeemer has set us free!

Galatians 5 (NIV)

Freedom in Christ

5: 1.  It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

His Promise:

Hebrews 7:25
Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

His Faithfulness:

Romans 8: 28-35

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

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

Saturday February 13,2021

Remember you have the Power and a sound mind. Use it wisely.

2 Timothy 1:7

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

The Love of Christ guides us, and above all His Love went beyond our faults. Because of His Love, we have His Grace, and by His Redemption we are saved. 

No other god, no other name, no one can save you and give you everlasting life.  Why?

Only Jesus Because He our Redeemer lives...

Only Jesus rose from the dead, all others, are still buried. So, if they were god, then why are they still buried?

Thoughts for the day: Trusting in God…Who else is trustworthy?

 Jesus said… “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” Hebrews 13: 5.

Commentary: One could say…I do not want to be a Christian, because if I do, I cannot continue to enjoy the things of this world, let us look at the verb ‘ ’, this is a word derived from ‘rejoice’  it is an experience. Experience do not last forever, it is like the four little apples that I picked a few days ago, they are now no longer fresh and are not good for eating. So are the pleasures of the world, and many of these can leave you with guilt and remorse which is the price of sin. But the worldly life of a non-Christian leads to emptiness, therefore, without Christ the ‘enjoy’ is not real ‘Joy’… Joy is perpetual when you know Christ.

Trusting God and knowing Him leads to:

The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear (loves) Him, and delivers them (you)... Oh, fear the Lord, you saints! There is no want to those who fear Him… Psalm 34: 7, 9 NKJV.

The bible refers to believers as ‘Saints’ through Jesus Christ our Lord we have this privilege of receiving His Salvation by His Grace. Fortunately, no one can buy or earn His Salvation, otherwise heaven would be a place full of ‘boastful’ people. We are saved by His Grace and not of anything we do or can do.

Ephesians 2:8

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

The Christian life is full of Joy… Following Christ is what ‘Christianity’ means; and in Jesus we have that Victory and being filled with His Holy Spirit (His Comforter) we have the JOY.  Knowing that Jesus is the same Yesterday, Today and forever… we have His assurance of Heaven to be a real place where Jesus is King of His Kingdom.

Right now, you can speak with the King of kings, you do not have to wait to get to heaven… you have access to Jesus because he said, “Come unto me”.

 “No one comes to the Father unless through Him (Jesus)” no not Buddha, not Mohammed, not St. Peter or the church. 

So, we have this open invitation to come to Jesus...

Luke 5:32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”

Romans 10:13 New King James Version (NKJV)

13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Matthew 22: 37 Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

Remember: It was Jesus who said... Apart from me you can do Nothing… NADA… NIL.

Good News… Eternity? But will it be an eternity of your choice? You have a choice of one, not multiple choices. This is not our opinion it is God’s declaration… Heaven or Hell, this is rather abrupt…  why God is no respecter of person, he causes the rain to fall on all, good, bad, and ugly, and even the beautiful ones too, but in the sight of God we are all beautiful… so Jesus came to gather His creation and with open arms He is welcoming us all.

You can receive His Redemption right now, right where you are, no appointment necessary, no Catholic Priest, nor Church Pastor nor anyone else.

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.

To our Visitors that are in good standing church members and follower of Christ, the foregoing message may be redundant, but it is His Great Command…

Mark 16: 15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come... Lord today as we dedicate this week to You Lord, lead us and guide us, bless our Visitors, and grant us all Your favors.  Lord we pray for all Your servants engaged in Your mission fields to be equipped as we look to You knowing that all our needs are provided by Your Grace. We pray in your Holy name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Friday February 12,2021

Ending the week, hope your accomplishments were fulfilled… and shared with friends and neighbor. Touching lives spreading the Good News.

Most days are good and ending the week with positive days should add up to a fruitful week. The endeavors and our agenda do take more time to get done. But one thing for sure... Writing this Daily Devotional is the most satisfying part of the day.  And the most exciting part of the day is to check the Hit meters and be encouraged by the number of visitors. 

The question that we all need to have an answer to... will it ever be ‘back to normal’? Rather than relaxing the imposition of wearing masks, the recommendation is ‘double’ your mask.  All this appears to be a ploy to sell more china made masks.  with a worldwide Pandemic, if everyone is wearing a mask, then there are 8 billion masks in use.

Today we would like to focus on 2 Corinthians 12:9 and do as Paul did.

Paul’s Vision and His Thorn

12 I must go on boasting. Although there is nothing to be gained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. 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. And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows— was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell. I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say, or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

The Pandemic is taking a toll on a lot of people… The negative impact of Health and wellness far out strips the economic impacts which is also devasting for many. As much as nine out of ten will experience some negative impacts and the fallout from the over-spending to stabilize the economy will create more negative impacts. But God in His Divine Power will cause His people to endure. Just like the caterpillar in the cocoon will emerge to be a beautiful butterfly.

For the people that created the Pandemic, if it was done to inflict harm on others, let this be known. If all it took was money, anyone can do it. But in the Heavenly realms, all the money in the world cannot secure a place in God’s Kingdom. So, to gain the world and lose one’s soul it is a futile attempt.

Isaiah 54:17

no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord.

Prayer:

Lord Jesus… as You are proclaimed to be God in One of our Father and as King of kings.  Lord Jesus we give You the Glory as we seek Your blessings on us all. Lord bless our visitors as we bring Your messages for Your Glory that many will come to know You Lord, as only what is done for You Lord will last.  Lord we thank You for the privilege of serving You, and in You Lord Jesus we commit all to You and Pray in Your Holy Name to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Thursday February 11,2021

The richest man in the world? Is he happy? Is he favored by the Lord? Jesus gave credit to the old widow who gave her last coin. Hear His comment on the wealthy…

Mark 12:41

The Widow’s Offering

Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts.

Mark 12:42

But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents.

Mark 12:43

Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others.

Don’t get distracted by instant gratification. Seek what will last and remember, only ‘what’s done for Christ will last’.

Instant gratification can come from playing a scratch-off game and winning a prize, and other forms of receiving what we refer to as ‘just a moment in time’. As statistics point out that…

As compiled by the National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE) stating that 70 percent of lottery winners end up bankrupt in just a few years after receiving a large financial windfall.

Here’s a way that the ‘financial-windfall’ can give you total satisfaction, if you won the jackpot, just donate it to a worthy cause, and you have gained everything and there nothing to worry about. Why? Because prior to winning you did not have the windfall money, so giving it away you are just yourself with nothing to lose.

To donate away the financial windfall it would be a major decision, but if you will be falling into the 70% bracket of going into bankruptcy in a few years, why win it? Or why keep it and let it influence you to go broke?

The above exercise of futility just proved that worldly instant gratification will not last.

Only what’s done for Christ will last, a well-known statement by CT Studd was a missionary to Africa, India and China who gave away his large inheritance and fortune to orphanages and the needy.

An excerpt on C.T. Studd’s life:

Charles Thomas Studd ("C.T. Studd") was born in England in 1860, the son of wealthy Edward Studd, who had made a fortune in India. Charles Studd liked sports just like most young men. He had a passion for cricket because it was the most popular sport in England at the time. His older brother Kynaston Studd, was a member of the Cambridge cricket team and well known. C.T., however, wasn't a great athlete but determined to master the sport. He would practice for hours, using a mirror to help him adjust his swing. He kept away from any harmful habits that may diminish his cricket ability. Soon he began to master the sport and became the captain of his high school cricket team. In 1879, when Studd entered Trinity College of Cambridge University, his popularity as a cricket star took off. He became what others have referred to as "the Michael Jordan of cricket," a household name throughout Great Britain. He soon became the captain of the Cambridge cricket team, an idol to students and legend in his time. and he had a particular passion for cricket, the most popular sport in England at the time. Studd was claimed then, and today as the greatest player to have ever played the game. But that is just a footnote compared to what has really marked C.T. Studd's life in history.

C.T. was saved in 1878 at the age of 18 by the confrontation of a pastor, who really questioned him as to his personal relationship with Christ. Both his brothers gave their lives to Christ the same day that he did. His passion for Christ diminished as his cricket career grew in college and soon, he was hardened to spiritual things. However, in November 1883, his younger brother George got very sick and was dying. As C.T. watched in horror and grief at the suffering of his brother, he reflected, "Now what is all the popularity of the world to George? What is all the fame and flattering? What is it worth to possess the riches of the world, when a man comes to face Eternity?" With a surprising turn, God miraculously healed George and C.T. was so dramatically changed through the event that he consecrated himself to the Lord's work. The things of this world were not worthy of his life, Studd would begin to invest himself in the eternal.

We say only what’s done by the will of the Lord in His Name will last.

The old adage of… ‘anything ill-begotten will soon be lost’

Therefore; ‘Let us hold unswervingly to the Hope we profess, for He who promised (Jesus) is Faithful. "I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee."  Isaiah 44:22 KJV

            “Ask, Seek & Knock… >>>>>

Philippians 4:4-6 (21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

 4Rejoice in the Lord always; and again, I say, "Rejoice!"  

5Let your moderation be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.   

6 Fret not about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus, thank You for being our Mediator. Lord we praise You and give You first place in all. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us Your Divine Providence. In Your Holy Name we pray to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

How many religions are there in the world? Which is the right one? And there is none that can save you??? 

The answer is 4,300. Religion will not save you… even Christianity cannot save you, why? Born in  in a Christian family will not make you a Christian, as Billy Graham once said… if you were born in a garage it will not make you a car.   

Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. 

but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 

And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 

to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen. 

 

For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 

The Supremacy of Christ: 

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. 

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 

 

Enjoy the Journey as the destination will be a real Paradise: 

Revelation 2:7 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of God.”  

 

1 Corinthians 3:16-23 

New King James Version (NKJV) 

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

 

Prayer: Conclusion: 

To know Christ:  Repent (Turn from your sins) and by faith receive Jesus Christ into your heart and life and follow Him in obedience as your Lord and Savior. 

 

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

 

We thank you for coming  to Christ, you have taken the first step to a wonderful life. 

 

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savor we come.  Lord Jesus thank You for being our Mediator and our Redeemer… Lord we thank You for the privilege of knowing You and that we can say You Lord Jesus our Redeemer Lives! We thank You for our Visitors and we seek your Divine Providence on each one as we go in Faith and to you Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen. 

 

 



Tuesday February 9,2021

Timing is everything… God’s timing is on a different standard, the time zones of the world vary, but His time Zone is Now, tomorrow, and forever, because He is ever present, and He is eternal…

Managing our family enterprise spans three-time zones. It is bedtime when Singapore starts, and the close of business day in Europe when there is a conference meeting.  In Awe, Billions may come to the Lord in Prayers all at once around the clock, and yet all will be heard on an individual basis.  This is much more complex than the internet. Have you stopped to think that the email you sent to Australia was received almost immediately?  Back 25 years ago the mode of an ‘Urgent-message’ was a Western Union telegram, it required a delivery person to get the telegram to your front door.

: Our God works in Quantum Yield or greater so great that our mind cannot comprehend the state of Physic that our Creator applied to ‘Super-Naturally’ created the Universe.

TEXT:   Romans 8: 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.

Commentary: Theologians debated the time that God took in creating the Universe… The Bible said a Day is like a thousand years to God, so are we saying that Genesis description of how God Created the Heavens and the Earth in six days, to be 6,000 years.  Quantum Mechanics and the law of Physics are talking 10,000 times faster than light, does this mean than in reality the 1,000 years according to our 24-hour clock when deduced by the theory of 10,000 times the day was in fact a unit of One (1) meaning that actually God’s creation was 1x6 days as we know a day to be Morning to Evening. Our God used Quantum Physics or a greater power that we have not yet thought about which shows our finite mind versus the Infinite power of God.

The theory of Teleportation is something physicists are saying that moving from point ‘A’ to point “B” in an instantaneous moment may be a possibility.  So, our finite mind is intrigued by this theory.  Somewhat like the men that stated to build the ‘Tower of Babel’ to reach heaven.  Somehow, we are still in the ‘Quantum-Mystery’ Mode, as we are still talking of taking the theory to the Thesis.

Looking back at primitive man thinking they could use Bricks with Tar as the mortar to build a stairway to heaven, today man in our modern day is thinking of how we may be ‘Teleported’ to another time zone?

Jesus said... “I am not of this world” and He was ‘Teleported’ back to the Father in Heaven.  Is the Bible giving us the clues to the future?  Albert Einstein said… God does not throw dice.

What do we want to conquer?  Jesus already made us Conquerors, and we are already ‘chosen’ and are Heirs to a Kingdom that cannot be shaken, not made by human hands. Being Heirs with our Lord Jesus who is God Incarnated (Remember no one has ever seen God) will we possess the ability to understand the rules that govern the atoms? And Quantum Mechanics? God already used it; He created the Universe from nothing.

Many of the Physicists that are developing Quantum Mechanics say that it is still a theory to teleport the ‘Particles’ and it could misfire… Our God has already made and operates a Teleport, this is described when the Bible said…”To be absent from the Body but be with the Lord.”

Scientists says that there is still a gaping hole in Quantum Physics, (The word ‘Mystery’ is routinely used by many researchers) The top Physicists can all agree that there is a missing link that is still a mystery.  Let us tell them that the Missing-Link is God!

Man’s quest to achieve Quantum-Physic and taking the theory of Faster than light to achieve a new dimension is not a theory, as the Good News is; God already provided this to each and every one of us.

TEXT:   Romans 6:13-14 New International Version (NIV)

13 Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. 14 For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.

Were the actions of our Lord Jesus performed by Quantum Mechanics? Certainly, His Ascension was a mode of transportation that we have yet to apply. But this mode of transportation is used every day when a Believer is received by our Lord Jesus in a twinkling of an Eye.

Prayer: Heavenly Father thank You for making all things possible through Jesus our Lord and Savior. Lord Jesus we give You our Praises and thank You for Your Grace. Lord bless our Visitors and us all, In You Holy Name we pray… Amen.

Waiting on God? Or is God waiting on you? He said He will return, and His rewards are with Him…

Revelation 22: 12…

12“ Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”

NO. 1 Reason for HIS coming…

His ‘Reward’ is Himself as our Lord and Savior…

The good Lord did not intend for us to be on the daily treadmill of life….

Yes, we were thought to fend for ourselves, just as an infant cry for food, or when he is wet, we developed many instincts of survival.  We were endowed with a life that we cannot believe could have existed. Just think that we could be in a garden like any of the world’s best botanical garden but much better with abundance of food, all of what we ever could desire; without ever having to earn the money to purchase our need, this was a place that we could have had.

But we were led into a way of life that was contrary to God’s plan for our life.  You may ask is God is so mighty why did he not keep us in this beautiful Oasis? As we learn that we were created in the likeness of God, that made us smarter than many living things on earth and were given the freedom of choice, because we were not created to be ‘Slaves’ we became Slaves to this world. Why? Because when man went against the will of God, he was casted out of this beautiful Oasis and had to hunt and survive on his own.  We were then condemned to die in our rebellious state of mind, because he said, “if we eat of the forbidden fruit, we will surely die.’

Die? Really?  Is this all? Then what is next? because we were created in his likeness, we were given more than just a life, we were given dominion over the world, this means all creatures on earth, the air the sea and the resources. So why were we condemned to death? Because we give more than life, we have a Soul, look around and analyze the reason why we need to have an education, earn the respects of others, maintain a job, or invent something that will give us money. Some people simply earn a living, some achieves enormous wealth, and some just take it from others that have it. So, what is life all about, even if you are on the Forbes ® list of the top wealthiest individual we cannot go beyond the condemnation that we inherited? Because we cannot earn, purchase, or inherit that gift that is the real reason for HIS coming.

Here is the number one reason for HIS coming, HE wanted to pardon us because we were not able to redeem ourselves from the condemnation, just like an insurance policy or a note, we are given a ‘Grace’ period,  but in reality, the grace that he gave us could only be achieved by God providing a way to replace our condemnation.  Because the word of God is infinite and cannot be changed, his statement of “You shall surely die” was a condemnation meant for all Mankind, not just the immediate violator of his order, but to all that came after then as descendants.

To provide a redemption and to ‘Pay” that price, God through the Holy Trinity as an ever-present God with the power to have created the universe, sent his “Son” to live a living example and to die in our place to fulfill HIS word of his condemnation.  So, because of Christ’s dying (in our place) we were given that eternal Hope.

Romans 5:6

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.

Prayer: Thank You Father through Jesus our Lord and Savior. Lord Jesus, we give You our praises and utmost for Your Highest. Lord as we gather with our Visitors, bless each of us and grant us all Your Divine Providence. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You be the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Think on this today:

Because Jesus said, He came that we may have an abundant life and have it 'more' abundantly... why did Jesus said 'more' in describing 'Abundant'? Because He has prepared a way for each of us to have a 'Double-Portion' and His double-portion is an eternal life in Him.

Is the future Space?  Space travels? The USA formed ‘SpaceForce’ to what degree is it for Space-Defense’ or exploration for betterment of mankind? 

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday February 7th, 2021

Is the future Space?  Space travels? The USA formed ‘Space Force’ to what degree is it for Space-Defense’ or exploration for betterment of humanity?

On earth we have ‘International Water’ this is the territorial boundaries of a sovereign nation. In Space nations have launched so many space junks that is cluttering the lower orbits. The USA .EU, China[MH1] [MH2] , UAE, Canada, UK, France and many others have launched probes, and are planning to set up Lunar Stations and soon, these will be militarized for offensive purposes. It is a never-ending cycle of enmity between nations.

The day when Christ returns, I believe Russia will call the USA, England will call, and they will all like to ‘Unite’ to find a way how to deal with the great event.  It will be ‘too late’, and the nations gather for a futile attempt against the Almighty God, the Prince of Peace. but there will be no Peace on Jesus’ final Visit,  thereafter will be the days of ‘Tribulations’ so, here we see the missed opportunity of failing to grasp the Brotherhood on humanity, as we all failed to follow Christ’s instruction of ‘Love our neighbors as ourselves’.

2 Peter 3:10

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

Matthew 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.

Today as it is the Lord’s day, and the gathering as the Body of Christ has been deterred by the man-made Covid-19 Pandemic, here we see the reason for this plague upon the land because of conflicts. As said, there will be a day when nations will seek to come together, but it will be too late as stated above.

Jesus Christ did the same for you and us… He called you to be a member of Royalty…

1 Peter 2:9 [Full Chapter]

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

10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

His ‘Priceless-Gift’…

His Priceless Gift is something we cannot purchase, earn it, inherit it or own it because we ‘deserve’ it.

This is the Grace of God…

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

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

Can you imagine that when you arrive in Heaven you meet this fellow who said…’Let me tell you how I got here’ I made it on my own, because I am the greatest.   Mohammed Ali once said:” I am the Greatest” but remembering that we are mere humans, created in the Likeness of God… but we are born with a blemish.  This blemish is ‘sin’ as by one made sin entered into the world, and by One Redeemer we are saved.

Therefore, being redeemed by the Blood…

forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, In Context | Full Chapter |

Saturday February 6th, 2021

There is so much to be discovered, (Not invented) Discoveries are all that we have, as there is nothing that we have invented. We may have an invention that is most useful, it is Air Conditioning, but it was really a discovery. Printing Press, telephone, Automobile, these among the earlier inventions.

Driverless automobiles? Can it cope with stupidity? Someone said stupidity has no limits, who?

The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits. Albert Einstein

Driverless cars are safe until something out of the norm takes place… bad weather, a drunk driver, a sinkhole, or something unexpected. 

In life, we should measure twice & cut once. God provided a solution if we made a mistake, and His solution is real….

All that Glitter is not Gold…Measure twice and cut once, look before you leap, Stop Look & Listen

Think on this   : Of all the warning given to us, the best is the fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

TEXT:                  Psalm 111:10

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever. In Context | Full Chapter | 

Commentary:

Wisdom could be considered more valuable than gold, it is said that the person with the gold makes the ‘golden’ rules. So, the rules are from God as all the gold belongs to him, but as we read in Revelation, this precious metal will be used as ‘brick-pavers’ for the street of Heaven.

It is amazing that God trusted us so much that He made us with ‘Free-Will’. God also endowed some of the ‘Poorest’ nation with the most Precious Metal and Gemstones, and the people of these nations continue in poverty because of the exploitation of their resources by fellowmen.   This why we have ‘Blood-Diamond’, ‘Jungle Gold’ and still the greed goes on...

Your Smartphone is watching you… and what it gathers is not to help you, it can be against you?

According to a BBC report, intelligence agencies use such techniques but seldom reveal that they do so.

In July 2015, mobile phone spyware software that was sold to governments was stolen and made available to the public.

It allows spies to take photos with a phone’s camera and record conversations with the microphone, without the phone owner knowing.

Alarming? Guess what encryption and all steps against spyware maybe helpful, but who does this? So, the best advice is to keep the phone away from you, especially when you sleep. Major mobile phone makers themselves showed that people exposed to mobile radiation took longer to fall asleep and spent less time in deep sleep.

“The study indicates that during laboratory exposure to 884 MHz wireless signals components of sleep believed to be important for recovery from daily wear and tear are adversely affected,” the study concluded.

Smart TVs will also render similar negative effects as the Wireless receiver features the same 884 MHz signal components.

So, it is best leaving your phone in the next room and turning off the power bar to your smart TV before going to bed.

Our ‘Direct-access’ to the Lord requires no Modem, no Internet, and no wires.  The connection to the Lord is not only ‘Wireless’ it is connected by the Holy Spirit.

God provided these to be used for Joy and to share among mankind, but as we see Diamonds are used to fuel war and conflicts.

Without God, all is lost, the Bible said, when the Gospel is preached in all the land then shall the end comes.

Matthew 24:14

Principle: Make Jesus preeminent in your life and all things will fall into place…

Prayer: Father we come in Jesus our Redeemer and our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity, Lord Jesus in awe we come knowing that all things were created by You as The Father Spoke and You acted in His Holy Spirit. Lord today we come to You seeking Your Divine Blessings and Your guidance, as we say that Your Hands are ‘Over’ us, and not in what we do, as You Lord do not need help, so we place all things in Your Hands and look to You knowing that all things are possible for those who trust in You Lord. Lord Your Unconditional love abounds in what You have created for mankind, Lord today let us be good stewards of Your mission and bless our Visitors coming to this Website. We pray in Your Precious Name Lord Jesus, to You are the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

In a world of Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Physics, Robotics, Drones and soon to be… Flying cars, self-driving trucks, and inter-planetary travels.  What have we done to improve humanity?

Inhabiting Mars? Mars is a hostile planet and cannot support humans, so why spend billions going there?

According to the group that are planning to colonize Mars, this is a contingent plan in case earth is struck by a meteorite, or a nuclear explosion(s).  Logically, Mars is not an alternate habitat. For one the travel time to there it is about 300+ days. Then there is no Agricultural environment, Potable-Water. So, spending billions to get to a vast desert environment, this could not be classified as a place to provide sustainable life.

So, planning ahead as the alternative to what would be left behind after a nuclear explosion, this is what they discovered in 1945.

How the First Nuclear Bomb Turned Sand to Glass

Trinitite is the green, glassy substance that was left behind after the first atomic bomb was tested at on July 16, 1945 on the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.

It was theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer who chose the codename "Trinity," though he could never remember why. As a participant in the Manhattan Project, he oversaw the construction of four atomic bombs. By the spring of 1945, the U.S. military had started looking for a place to test one of them out. Sites in California, Colorado and Texas were considered before the Pentagon chose a patch of terrain at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.

For reasons he had come to forget, Oppenheimer codenamed this historic trial run "The Trinity Project." On July 16, 1945, at 5:29 a.m. Mountain Time, a plutonium bomb — known simply as "The Gadget" — was detonated at the site. This marked the first deployment of an atomic weapon in recorded history. Within a month, the United States used two atomic bombs to level both Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan and help bring World War II to an end. So began the Atomic Age.

The codename for the first Atomic bomb was ‘Trinity’ Maybe when Oppenheimer chose this name, he could be thinking that the bomb would one day end civilization.

‘Trinity’ is not mentioned in the Bible.  And So is the word ‘Rapture.’

But we know of God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit these being the Holy Trinity,

The’ Rapture’ is not mention, but we know that it is defined in 1 Thessalonians 4:17

Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so, shall we ever be with the Lord.

‘Tribulation’ is mentioned 25 times in the KJV and 20 times in the NASB. 
Mark 13:19

For those days will be a time of tribulation such as has not occurred since the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will.

 Mark 13:24

The Return of Christ

“But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light,

Prayer: Lord as we can without doubt say that Your Return will be factual because Your Word is always true. So, Lord knowing that we say we are ready Lord. And Lord open the hearts and minds of our Visitors today that they too will be ready for that day described above  to be caught up together to meet You Lord. We go in Faith and we thank You Lord Jesus for Your Divine Redemption. To You  Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

Going the ‘extra-mile’ taking the hits, graduating from the school of hard knocks. Moving to the forefront is also possible, move up today.

According to those placing their trust in Karma, they expect a reward for doing a good deed.  The definition of a ‘Good-Deed’ is… something that you do from the heart and rendered without a request or expecting a reward.

 

A statement from a Chinese cookie…” He that gives should not remember, he that receives should never forget.”

 

The world is full of philanthropists that declares their ‘Good Deeds’ by broadcasting their wealth and their philanthropic ‘Gifts’.

 

First, no one owns anything… we are mere custodians for a short time. 

 

TEXT: Matthew 6:3

But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, In Context | Full Chapter |

 

The Lord said… Matthew 5:3

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. In Context | Full Chapter |

 

Jesus was saying “being poor in Spirit’ is when we know that we are poor and destitute as a sinner, and when we come to this realization and come to Him, then we are rewarded with His Kingdom.  The converse of this is, if you are rich in material things and not poor in Spirit believing that you have everything, then you are just bankrupt in the sight of God; because we are mere stewards of what He provides.

Remember the talent taken from the one that did nothing and given to the one that did the most?

Matthew 25:15

To one he gave five talents, to another, two, and to another, one, each according to his own ability; and he went on his journey.

Jesus spoke about the ten Virgins, five were wise and five foolish… so today as we prepare for the coming of the Bridegroom, let us choose to be among the wise.

Matthew 25 [Full Chapter]

[ The Parable of the Ten Virgins] “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. ...

So today let us forget what we gave but remembering ‘why’ we gave… it is the Love of others and to fulfill the ‘Great-Commission’ ordered by Christ.

 

Matthew 28: NASB

The Great Commission

16 But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. 17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful. 18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

 

Commentary: Jesus confirmed God’s great commission to HIM… Then Jesus gave His Great Commission to each of us.

 

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

 

Conclusion: Jesus confirmed that ‘HE would be with us always, even to the end of the age’.

Is the end of the age coming…?  YES, read about this:

 

The Final Message

10 And he *said to me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. 11 Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.”

12 “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”

 

Commentary:

The statement of… 11 Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; this sounds like a paradox; but it really is not.  Because God does not want us to compromise and to those who are doing wrong by ignoring His call, God will not ‘twist’ their arm as all is born with ‘Free-Will’.   So, if one is doing wrong and continue to do so even after being enlighten of the Good news of Christ’s Salvation, God is saying “so be it”.

 

The adage of ‘You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot force him to drink.’ 

,
If we let the Holy Spirit of the Lord be upon us, the ‘scales’ will fall from our eyes and we can then see-clearly to walk in the light.

 

Thanking the Lord for His Mercies and His Divine Redemption…

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord today as we hear your calling, we come knowing that You Lord Jesus our Redeemer Lives and we shall see You as You are on that day.  Lord we acknowledge that Your Word is Eternal, and You will be with us till the end of time.  We thank You for our Visitors and we seek Your Providence upon all, to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Do we know the future? Yes… It is foretold in the Bible. It will be hard times and good times, know the secrets revealed by Jesus…

  Today and everyday,  Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Text:  John 14:26 (NASB)

26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

Commentary:

A book ( Do you sincerely want to be Rich?)  written by an infamous investor that created what he called the Funds of Funds, which was a forerunner to the now standard Mutual Funds investment platform.  This innovator made a lot of money riding on the backs of the most successful Wall Street firms, with some degree of safety due to his formula his method irked the Wall Street power base and the SEC stepped in and drove him offshore.  In a desperate move to survive, the founder brought in a ‘trusted’ individual that swindled the entity. This individual  was supposed to be the ‘White-Knight’ came to ‘Raid’ instead to rescue. The Rescuer fled to Cuba after gaining control of the assets, he eventually died in Havana... (The Rescuer became a famous Fugitive)

This is a fine example of…

 “What does it profit a man if he gained the whole world but lost his soul?”

The answer to the topic above is Yes… Yes! we can be Rich, in Christ! Riches are not defined by the temporary things we see, it is determined by God in His Economy of Scale, He said …

Luke 19:17  (NKJV)

17 And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant; because you were faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities.’

Our Gracious Savior Jesus… Messiah, said:  2”But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you” John 14:26.

What did Jesus mean? He will send His Divine Helper, His Holy Spirit that will be our Guide us.  What a privilege that Jesus promised and delivered to those that sought Him, this is the POWER from Him, and not something we can buy nor download from Google® It is only available through Jesus.  Our Lord made a lot of statement that are meaningless to us mere mortals, remember:

1 Corinthians 1:25
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

 Matthew 6:33-34

33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

34 “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Not only was our Lord Jesus giving us the secret to a successful life in HIM, but he also went on to reveal a life of Joy and even some leisure time, as He said, “do not worry about tomorrow.”

In the Book of Exodus, it states…Exodus 20:3
“ You shall have no other gods before Me.

What does the book of Exodus have to do with us today?  During the Exodus, the Israelites were fleeing Egypt to the Promised Land, today we are doing the same, but is not just Egypt, it is the world that has become viler than the Pharaoh, as almost all are virtually ‘enslaved’ to high interest Credit Cards, Mortgages, Automobile Loans, or debt owed to man. 

His Promise:

The Greatest of all Gifts we can ever receive is His Priceless GIFT.  John 3: 16 is a Bible verse taught to us as a child, and this short narrative is the Whole Gospel of Christ’s Redemption for us all.

John 3:16 (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.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

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

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 is done in Christ will Last.

Prayer:

Father in Heaven in Jesus our Lord and savior we come. Lord Jesus 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 You Lord Jesus is Preeminent. Lord let us use this day for Your Glory as we open our hearts to You and receive Your Divine Grace. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

The Future is Good? It is the best years of our lives, or is it going to be a period of challenges? Choose one and secure your future. Lean how here…

No: 1 Christ came that we would have Life and have it ‘More’ abundantly.

John 10:10

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

No: 2. Seek Him and His righteousness first…

Matthew 6:33

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Know this…

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

We are special…

2 Timothy 1:7

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

In summation:

We are given an Abundant Life, With Him He will add all things to our lives, and by His Power, we can do all things through Him who strengthens us.

And we do not ever fear…because we have His Power and a Sound-Mind.

 Wealth cannot buy happiness, good life experiences are better than material goods, spend it wisely helping others. Helping others is a narrow line that fades in the shadows of ‘enabling’.

The old adage of give a man a fish and he is fed for a day, teach a man to fish and he will have food for a lifetime… Jesus came to the boat and said to them, “Children, have you any food?”

They answered Him, “No.”

John 21:6

And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish. In Context | Full Chapter 

Many humanitarian missions to impoverished countries are ‘feeding program’ and are justified as malnourishment must first be cured.  Human exploitation are the main cause of human suffering, the warring factions, the radical ‘Ism’ of religion, ideology, greed and just plain exploitation of others will all end one day.  Because this is ‘predestined’ according to the Scriptures, and the Word of God said so…

Principle:          Our Lord is always on Time and never behind, He Leads and we follow.

Prayer: Father we come in Jesus our Redeemer, Lord Jesus our Eternal Sovereign God, Lord, let each day be a day of Grace, and let Your Blessings flow to us and to others that we interact with. Lord we place You on High, and we stand at the empty Cross knowing that You ascended to the Throne of Righteousness, and we are privileged to come as You intercedes for us. Lord, we pray for our Visitors and our Nation and we ask that Your will be done and bring us to You so that You may heal our land, we pray for those in the pathway of the storm hitting New Jersey and New York. Lord we pray in Your Holy name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

Is the Pandemic going away? Are the politicians using  it as a weapon? What is their ultimate goal? One thing for sure, their goals are futile. Read more…

Today all the efforts of mankind in pushing their agenda are nothing more than building the Tower of Babel.  We all know the end result of their futile effort.

Genesis 11 New King James Version

The Tower of Babel

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

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

So, the intent of whomever created the COVID-19; the hands of the Lord will reach them, as God is the same yesterday, the event of the building of the tower outline in the Book of Genesis written by Moses around 1406-1446 BC.

Comparing the Pandemic to the Tower of Babel may not be truly accurate, but the comparison of mankind’s intent may be applicable as mankind over-reached at that point the Lord will intervenes; and He will stop them in their tracks.

So, let us not fear the intent of the evil doers, and the Antichrist as described…

1 John 2:18

Deceptions of the Last Hour

Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.

1 John 2:22

Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.

1 John 4:3

and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.

Lord as we affirm that in You Lord Jesus, we shall triumph over the evil one and we shall not fear what man can do…

Hebrews 13:6

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

Thank You Lord Jesus, Lord, bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Divine Providence.  To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forever… Amen.

Looking to God the Father as the Author and Finisher of our Faith… Praying with Jesus, knowing that He is in your midst. So, talk with Him directly and not in a third-party inference.


DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday January 31, 2021

Looking to God the Father as the Author and Finisher of our Faith… Praying with Jesus, knowing that He is in your midst. So, talk with Him directly and not in a third-party inference.

No one has ever seen God. But we can converse with Him because he said ‘Call on me and let us reason together.

Psalm 50:15

“Call upon Me on the day of trouble; I will rescue you, and you will honor Me.”

Isaiah 1:18

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool.

When someone says… God told me this, this morning, how do you react to this?

Yes, HE SAID…”My sheep knows my voice”.

John 10:14

I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep and am known by My own.

John 10:15

As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.

John 10:16

And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.

Discernment: God gave us the privilege of discernment…

Philippians 1:9

And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment,

God makes no preference, but we are given certain privileges that set us apart. A follower of Christ will be able to communicate based on enlightenment and by the Holy Spirit’s presence in our daily lives.

There is a study that shows that  as Christians their life expectancy will be longer. (an abstract of a report) In both samples, the study showed that those with documented religious affiliations lived an average of 9.45 and 5.64 years longer respectively than those who did not. When other important factors like gender and marital status were calculated, the number dropped to 6.48 and 3.82 years.

What does the study reveal? Most certainly, the presence of the Lord in once’s life has benefit and it is spiritual and material benefits,

So today as we cope with the disarray of a divided government, the greed, and deceits. The deceptions and ulterior intents of politicians and the persecution of Christians be aware that we are set apart. Even under arrest Paul and Silas while in jail, they remained faithful and we all know their release from jail that we often referred to as the great jailbreak.

So, in Faith Christians do enjoy spiritual privileges, know it, and claim it in His Name.  as said…

1 Corinthians 2:12

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

2 Peter 1:4

by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Know this…

2 Peter 1:4

by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Micah 3:6  (Without vision)

The sun will set for the prophets, and the day will go dark for them. ... “Therefore, you shall have night without vision, and you shall have darkness without divination; The sun shall go down on the prophets, And the day shall be dark for them.

Acts 2:17

‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.

Heavenly Father as we stand before You by the Righteousness of Your Son, Jesus our Redeemer. Lord Jesus we thank You for Your Graciousness and for Your Divine Redemption, Lord today we affirm You as Lord of lord and King of kings.  Lord bless our Visitors and give us all the Spiritual-Discernment as we follow You and know that you are the light of our world.  To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

We take so much for granted… Stop and think, going to the Lord, are we in an ‘Asking’ mode, or are we in a ‘Thanksgiving mode’? Knowing that God knows our needs before we ask, but he said, ask, why?  Oneness in Christ… or are we doing it ritualistically?  Worship in Reverence and Love for our Lord and not just to ask Him for favors

 James 1: 1-8  (NKJV)

James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,

To the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad:

Greetings.

Profiting from Trials

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Commentary: James the author of the book of James was the brother of Jesus.  During the lifetime of Jesus on earth, James was not a believer; John 7:2-5) Now the Jews’ Feast of Tabernacles was at hand. His brothers therefore said to Him, “Depart from here and go into Judea, that Your disciples also may see the works that You are doing. For no one does anything in secret while he himself seeks to be known openly. If You do these things, show Yourself to the world.” For even His brothers did not believe in Him.

James saw Jesus after the resurrection, he was also present on the Day of Pentecost… Acts 1:4 (NKJV) The Holy Spirit Promised

And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me;

James became the leader of the church in Jerusalem…(Written in the Acts, written by Luke) Acts 12:17 (NKJV)

17 But motioning to them with his hand to keep silent, he declared to them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, “Go, tell these things to James and to the brethren.” And he departed and went to another place.

Acts 15: 13 And after they had become silent, James answered, saying, “Men and brethren, listen to me: 14 Simon has declared how God at the first visited the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His name. 15 And with this the words of the prophets agree, just as it is written:

16 ‘After this I will return and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down;
I will rebuild its ruins, And I will set it up.

17 So that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord,
Even all the Gentiles who are called by My name,
Says the Lord who does all these things.’

18 “Known to God from eternity are all His works. 19 Therefore I judge that we should not trouble those from among the Gentiles who are turning to God, 20 but that we write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from things strangled, and from blood. 21 For Moses has had throughout many generations those who preach him in every city, being read in the synagogues every Sabbath.”

The message of James offers a clear and practical methods of how Christians may apply the principles of the Beatitude to our daily lives.

James laid out in Chapter 1: 2-4 the purpose of the trials we suffer in our live; James 1:2-4 (NKJV)

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

Reflection on Jesus who lived among James and his other sibling, here we see James who was not a believer in Jesus until he saw Jesus after the Resurrection, from this we can imagine that Jesus never ‘preached’ to James but growing up as brothers James probably accepted Jesus as just a kid brother, not accepting the deity of Jesus as the Messiah.  But the Grace of God kept James in the family of Christ that James is still with Jesus.  So as Brothers and Sisters in family units today, gather in the name of Jesus and come to know Christ to keep the circle from being broken… Look to the future in Christ Jesus our Lord so that we shall all gather in that great cathedral with Jesus.

Prayers: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come… Lord Jesus as our sole Mediator to the Father we gather in Your Holy Name and we praise You for Your Graciousness and we thank you for Your Divine Redemption knowing that Your reference to the Poor includes us, but Lord You have paid it all… and Lord we give You first Place in all as You Lord Jesus is Preeminent as King of kings and Lord of all.  We thank you for our Visitors and we seek your blessings upon us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

The wonder of God’s creation… the unique taste and packaging, the awesome splendor and above  all His promise and priceless gift He has provided.

Eating fruits and enjoying the taste satisfying flavors from figs, plums, apples, pistachio nuts, and many other fruits; I often stop to think of how God created such varieties.  The wonder of the taste and unique packaging that these fruits are presented.  It is in awe that I appreciate God’s wonderful creation.

Today  I have dedicated it to be a day of thanksgiving for our Creator’s magnificent array of what He created for our enjoyment. As He said…

Revelation 22:2 In Context 

in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Today as I take my supplements of vitamin C, Garlic, Zinc, Salmon Oil, and a few others that are essential for boosting the immune system. I also wonder how in the time of the disciples travelling and spreading the Good News, how did they manage.  But it is no secret that God prepared them and provided for each one. However, their lives were challenged and all experienced death by being killed; except John who lived to die naturally, after  taking care of Mary the mother of Jesus and writing the Book of Revelation.

The Disciples all dedicated themselves to the spreading the Gospel, except Judas who betrayed Christ.  Just like John the Baptist whom Herod killed. As we often say… Jesus knew of John’s impending death and He could have stopped Herod, however, Jesus knew that John was ready to go in the presence of the Father, and the disciple’s lives being taken were also a ‘going-home’ for them.

Giving thank to the Lord is a daily event, and it is as expressed above in awe of the worder of God’s great creation and love for us, as he gave us dominion over all things. So experientially we are to express our thanks and not ritualistically.

Thank You Lord Jesus… We love You and give You first place in all and knowing that all things are from you as stated…

Romans 11:33-36 New American Standard Bible

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

 34 For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who became His counselor? 

35 Or who has first given to Him, that it would be paid back to him? 

36 For from Him, and through Him, and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.

Thursday January 28, 2021

The application of Preaching versus Teaching, leading versus directing and forcing versus influencing. Why did Jesus say… come to Him as a Child?

There is a vast difference of ‘Preaching versus ‘Teaching’ From my own perspective of reviewing how Jesus presented the Good News, He was at all times teaching. In most instances, He was conversing with his audience. Just as how he told Nicodemus of the need to be Bonn-Again.

His Sermon of the Mount, this being the Beatitude, here we see Jesus teaching, and He was making a statement, as we like to refer to the Sermon on the Mount as His Inauguration Speech.

was the Sermon on the Mount “The Beatitudes” … Which we at Good News Forever refer to as ‘Let these be your attitude’ and we recognize this as Jesus’ ‘Inauguration speech’ of a King. This sermon sets the many precepts for us to abide by and strive to achieve them to please our Lord.

Matthew 5:1-13 New International Version (NIV)

Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.

The Beatitudes

He said:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.+++ End of Text.

Our mental abilities rise and fall in waves as we keep on developing skills, we may even expand our reading comprehension and our mathematic skill improves.  So, getting better with age may not only apply to vintage wines, but we are an amazing creation and more so when we add God to the equation of aging.

 When God chooses you, you could be as old as ever, as His mission in your life will be fulfilled, let us look at:

  • Noah was 500 years old when he started to build the Ark, and 600 years old when he entered the ark. Moses was 80 years old when he entered the palace of Pharaoh to tell him… Exodus 5:1

[First Encounter with Pharaoh] Afterward Moses and Aaron went in and told Pharaoh, “Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘Let My people go, that they may hold a feast to Me in the wilderness.’

  • David killed Goliath when he was only 15 years old…

So regardless of your age, be prepared to serve the Lord.

EVENING:

Coming to our Lord:

His Faithfulness:

Jesus the giver of Life – everlasting, remember that a ‘Free’ Gift had to be bought by the giver, and Jesus bought His Priceless Gift with His Life by dying for us, and His Payment was Redeemed by the Father as He Rose from death. His Resurrection is a Witness of what He has endowed for those in Jesus who shall also share in His Glory through His Divine Redemption.

Yes, we can receive His ‘Priceless-Gift’ right now and be made a Joint-Heir in Christ our Savior.

Matthew 10:32

[Confess Christ Before Men] “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess (you) before My Father who is in heaven. In Context | Full Chapter 

To know Christ:  Repent (Turn from your sins) and by faith receive Jesus Christ into your heart and life and follow Him in obedience as your Lord and Savior. Pray this prayer of Commitment: Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Your Name, I pray Lord Jesus… Amen. 

Prayer: Heavenly Father we come through Jesus our Lord and Savior. Lord Jesus thank You for Your Divine Grace and we thank You for each Visitors that are returning to our websites to read Your Good News. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Can a politician tell the truth? Yes, and no, but it is against their policy to be factual…

Why do politicians lie? Because voters do not want the truth. You would think it is the other way around where the politicians want to keep the voters from knowing the truth.

John 8:32

and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” In the Heavenly realms, knowing the ‘Truth” is knowing Christ, because He is the Truth and the Way…

These are Words spoken by Jesus… John 14:6

Jesus *said to him, “I am the wayand the truthand the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me”.

The Bible also said… Romans 10:17

So, faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.

Listening is an art; it takes discipline to be a good listener.

Listening is an art that requires work, self-discipline, and skill. The art of communication springs as much from knowing when to listen as it does from knowing how to use words well. Ask any good salesperson or negotiator about the value of silence. ... To sharpen listening skills, you need patience and practice.

Listening versus ‘hearing’… optimum. Volume over 80 decibels should be listened to for no more than 15 minutes.

The average sound level in the cinema is in the 80-110 decibel Range, when the soundtrack spikes, the effect can be damaging to your hearing.

When we pause in our prayers making our ‘communication with the Lord a two-way conversation, we can benefit immensely.  God gave us the ability of ‘Discernment’ and in many instances, there are auto-suggestions that will prompt us to make an effort to do this or to do that.

During this period of the Covid-19 Lockdown, many are suffering from depressions, lack of interaction among friends, and the cabin-fever is becoming unbearable.  The fallout of this is a high rate of suicide, drugs, and other diversions, even a high divorce rate. But it should be a time to communicate with the Lord, read the Word, learn more about the goodness of the Lord. Share the Good News and take time out to reach out to others.

Consider that the ‘Lockdown’ period it is like being aboard an airplane that has lost one or two of its engines, what would the crew be doing? One may be reading the manual, and others may be figuring out what is wrong and laying our contingency plans. The same in a lockdown at home, read the Bible, it will point the way out of this isolation, stop and listen and interact with others, it is like the captain communicating with the control tower.  Best of all communicate with God He is your ‘Control-Tower’ He knows the safe landing place and He will guide you there.  Happy Landings!

Thoughts for today… Grace is not a Vaccine but is administered with Faith. Without Faith it will not work…

Prayer: Father we come in Your Holy presence by the Grace of our Lord Jesus. Lord thank you for Your unconditional Love. Lord we seek Your Divine Blessing on our Visitors and us all. To You be the power and the Glory forever.  Amen.

Posturing is so much a part of society. This is virtually a setting build on pride and  a deceptive relationship. How do you rate the use of posturing?

Posturing based on what is truth and what is real may be considered an affirmation to expound the substance of our standing, such as…

Romans 15:17

Therefore, in Christ Jesus I have found reason for boasting in things pertaining to God. In Context 

Romans 4:1-3 New American Standard Bible

Abraham’s Justification by Faith

What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh, has found? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about; but not [c]before God. For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace, you have been saved through faith; and this is not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Jesus was not ‘Boasting’ when He said…

John 10:10 New American Standard Bible

10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came so that they would have life and have it abundantly.

A once prominent politician made the false claim that he invented the Internet, this misrepresentation stuck with him for life.

Is misrepresentation a lie?, most certainly.

One of the most profound posturing or denial is recorded in the Bible.  Peter denying Christ…

Matthew 26:75 Peter’s Denials

69 Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard, and a slave woman came to him and said, “You too were with Jesus the Galilean.” 70 But he denied it before them all, saying, “I do not know what you are talking about.” 71 When he had gone out to the gateway, another slave woman saw him and *said to those who were there, “This man was with Jesus of Nazareth.” 72 And again he denied it, with an oath: “I do not know the man.” 73 A little later the bystanders came up and said to Peter, “You really are one of them as well, since even the way you talk gives you away.” 74 Then he began to curse and swear, “I do not know the man!” And immediately a rooster crowed. 75 And Peter remembered the statement that Jesus had made: “Before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” And he went out and wept bitterly.

Despite Peter’s denial, Jesus restored him, and this was an example of Jesus knowing Peter’s fault and the reason for his denial… because we are mere humans and fear the worst. Remember Peter did say… Mark 14:29

But Peter said to Him, “Even if they all fall away, yet I will not!”

Mark 14:31

But Peter repeatedly said insistently, “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!” And they all were saying the same thing as well.

God’s Grace…

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous, so that He will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. In Context 

Yes, we can boast about God’s Grace…

Prayer: Father in Heaven we thank You as we gather in Your Holy Presence by the Righteousness of our Redeemer, Jesus our Lord. Lord Jesus we come and give You the Glory as we go in Faith knowing that You are in our Midst.  Lord we thank You for our Visitors as we seek your Divine blessings on us all. We pray in Your Holy Name, to you Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Why do doctors keep you waiting? Maybe because the person before you did not show on time, and the practice of attorneys keeping you waiting to see him, why? In most Asian professional offices, when you arrive for an appointment, you are greeted by name and taken to a conference room and offered Tea or refreshment, then in a few minutes your host will enter the room. In the USA, you are told to ‘Wait’ and be seated, and in most instances your host is just posturing.  This is a very unsophisticated way of starting a relationship.

As a developer, we built medical suites for Physicians, and their request usually require multiple examination rooms, why, we call them musical operatories, as it is intended to keep the patient in check while the physician is finishing up his current appointment.  

The story of IBM in its early days, while visiting a top bank, the team came in on time, and was shown a conference room, they waited for more than half and hour, but the Team manager said. ‘Let us go’ the sales team said why? This is an important appointment, and it took a lot to get this meeting, he said ‘If we wait, we will appear to be desperate, the team said, we do not have another meeting so why leave? So, they got up and told the receptionist, that they had to leave for another important assignment and when the banker was ready, he can call them and reset the appointment.  In a few hours they received a call asking if they could arrange a visit? The request was more in a ‘Please come back tone’  Guess what?, they went and made their presentation and landed the contract.

Posturing is psychological maneuvering; just like when the Chinese Communist party was to attend their first meeting at the United Nation, their dilemma was when to show up, to be on time, they considered it that they would be looked at being ‘Exact;’ to be too early, they would be seen as ‘Anxious’, to be a little late it would be considered aggressive’ guess which one they chose? (Learn the answer, send us an email to: maurice@tyrexminerals.com)

Our Lord will not be late, His return seems to be overdue… No, He has not forgotten us, inspite of the world’s turmoil and human tragedies, God is not posturing, He is allowing us time to repent.

2 Peter 3:9 In Context |

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, because of Your Righteousness we are privileged to come to the Father… Father we thank You for Your Graciousness and Your Love through our Lord Jesus. Today as we start a new week, Lord bless our Visitors and us all, we give You prominence as we look to You as the Author and Finisher of our Faith. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory forever.  Amen.

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday January 24th, 2021

Spending quality time, do it today, come to Christ enjoy the Joy of fellowship.

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

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

Commentary: Seek the Lord as He said “you are no longer servants, but friends” …

 John 15:15

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

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

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

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

John 3:16-17 (NKJV)

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

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

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

Good News…

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

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

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

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

His Redemption: 1 Peter 1:18-19 NIV

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

His Eternal Faithfulness:

John 11:25-26 (NKJV)

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

His Faithfulness-

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

It is already done by the Redeemer:

Mark 11:22-24 (NIV)

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

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

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:5-7 (in Context) Hebrews 11 (Whole Chapter)

Conclusion

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

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

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord we come to praise You and proclaim You as our Eternal-Sovereign God. Thank You Lord Jesus for this day and Lord because of You it is a Good Day as we Pray for our brothers and sisters and all so they too will have a Good-Day We give You preeminence in our lives knowing that we shall see You as You are Jesus Messiah… To You be the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Be Joyful not just being happy, what is the difference?

:  In pursuit of Happiness… Find Joy that is better and lasting.  Joy is from Rejoicing, Rejoicing in the Lord.

What do you have that you can have lasting Joy? To look at life, we need to know that ‘Life’ is also beyond this world. Why? Because Jesus said… ”I am not of this world”  and where He went, He will return and get you so that where He is you will be also. So, choosing something to be delighted in that gives happiness why not choose Joy that is lasting; and in Him we can Rejoice.  Rejoice is like repeating the Joy.

Repeat the sounding Joy… found in the favorite Christmas Carol.

Joy to the World, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the World, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

Joy is found 244 times in the Bible, Jesus warned not to make the things of this world deter us from His Joy.

Matthew 13:19-21 New King James Version (NKJV)

19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the wayside. 20 But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no root in himself but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles.

Luke 6:22-24 New King James Version (NKJV)

22 Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you,
    And revile you, and cast out your name as evil,   For the Son of Man’s sake.
23 Rejoice in that day and leap for joy!    For indeed your reward is great in heaven,
    For in like manner their fathers did to the prophets.

John 16:16

Sorrow Will Turn to Joy] “A little while, and you will not see Me; and again, a little while, and you will see Me, because I go to the Father.” In Context | Full Chapter |

Romans 15:13

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. In Context | Full Chapter 

Hebrews 12:2

looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. In Context | Full Chapter |

His Faithfulness:

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

Action / Coming to our Lord:

We can come to our Lord Boldly, as He is waiting to welcome us with open arms.

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 in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come… Lord Jesus today as we dedicate this day as a Day of Joy because You came as the King of kings and Lord of lords.  Lord today as we bring Your Good News, we humbly seek that Your Divine Grace will be upon us all as we welcome our Visitors in singing You our Praises. Lord Jesus we thank You for Your unconditional love and Your Divine Redemption as we commit all to You and to You be the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

The delicate balance to good health, eating right, weight the salt and sugar in the balance.

Eating more fish (Wild Caught), Leafy green vegetables, Whole Grains, Fruits and Nuts, exercise, Sleep, and stay hydrated. These are the pre-requisite of staying healthy. Add the protective gears, of weaking a mask, stay away from crowds, practice deep-breathing and taker your Vitamin supplements. Keep your immune system in order. And avoid second-hand smoke. And above all do all things in moderation.

Assuming we are doing the above, then we must be able to say… All is well with my Soul; this is from a hymn written by  Horatio Spafford and composed by Philip Bliss. The affirmation by Horatio Spafford done in a very traumatic time in his life of losing all his children, in the Chicago fire he lost everything, then the depression. Here is a man like Job, who was having sores all over his body, when his wife said, ‘why don’t; you curse God and die’ Job answered and said she was speaking like a crazy person, and affirmed… Job 19:25-26 New International Version
25 I know that my redeemer[b] lives,
    and that in the end he will stand on the earth.[c]
26 And after my skin has been destroyed,
    yet[d] in[e] my flesh I will see God;

Despite the foray of the enemy in our pathway, our Lord said.

 Isaiah 40:4

Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become levelthe rugged places a plain.

Isaiah 45:2

I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron.

Praise the Lord for a wonderful life knowing that the Best is yet to come…

Revelation 21:2 In Context |

I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

Revelation 21:1

A New Heaven and a New Earth

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.

Just to be clear, when the Bible refers to the passing of Heaven and Earth and a new Heaven and earth will be in place. It is not referring to the Heaven where the Throne of God is. It is a description of the Universe of Space and Earth.

Heavenly Father as Jesus ascended to You and Lord Jesus You our Mediator sits at the Right Hand of the Father in Your Kingdom, a place where Steven looked up and saw You Lord Jesus. We affirm that Your have said where You are, there shall us be. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us Your favors in Your Hold Name, to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Water into Wine, it takes time to produce wine, especially good wines.

Fermentation takes roughly two to three weeks to complete fully, but the initial ferment will finish within seven to ten days.

Good wine takes time… Good things take time, and there is no doubt when it is the matter of Wine. You know the saying “Aged like fine wine.”

John 2

Jesus Changes Water into Wine

On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.” ...


“Woman,[a] why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”

His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.[b]

Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so, they filled them to the brim.

Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”

They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10 and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”

With today’s technology, you can age new wine by an ultra-sonic frequency device that breakdown the molecules aging the new wine into a wine that is of a vintage taste.

But as God would say… start with your own grapes, water, yeast, and other ingredients and make your own without what He created. 

We know that all tings were created by Him, even the Dinosaurs. Did their job. They were like bulldozers, shaping the landscape and compacting the soil. No, they are not what made fossil fuels, but their actions may have helped in breaking down the vegetation that became fossil fuel over time.

Jesus performed His first miracle by turning water into wine. With all the inventions we have ‘created’ they are really discoveries. Jet Propulsion, rocket engineering is still primitive compared to Jesus’ levitation as He departed to Heaven. So, our achievements are still miniscule and in early development stages.

Tomorrow we will discuss Stem Cell Therapy, its purpose, and Regenerative abilities.

Let us Praise the Lord for His Grace and His Power, as he gave us a Sound Mind. Lord Jesus today we acknowledge our short-coming, yet Your love for us and Your Grace provided  gave us knowledge and Wisdom through Your Providence. Lord we thank you for our Visitors and bless each one and us all as we go in Faith thanking You today and giving You Preeminence un our lives. To You Lord Jesus is the power and the Glory forever.  Amen.

Real wealth, it is not seen, why? Because it is in Heaven…

The Church and God’s Mission:

The Church is the Body of Christ, and Jesus is the First Born, He is Alpha & Omega, the Beginning and the Ending, and the ending is to be with our Lord and Savior in a sanctified place of Splendor a place not made by human hands. Ephesians 1: 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

Insight for today… We are to live for the Glory of God not the glory of Self, serving others in His name is laying up treasures in Heaven. as he commanded: “Love one Another”

Text: Ephesians 1: 20-23

20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, 23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

We are reflecting on the early church of Corinth, and what the Apostles faced in  proclaiming the Gospels.  In cities like Ephesus, Acts 19:26
And you see and hear how this fellow Paul has convinced and led astray large numbers of people here in Ephesus and in practically the whole province of Asia. He says that gods made by human hands are no gods at all. Acts 19:25-27 (in Context) Acts 19 (Whole Chapter) 

 The silversmiths caused a riot as Paul turned many away from worshipping their idols, the silversmiths were losing business, as Paul told the worshippers, what good is an idol that not able to stand unless it was nailed down, and what can a dumb idol do for them.

The Mission of Jesus Christ: 

Ephesians 1: 11 In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. 13 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.

We are to gather in the Body of Christ, and in To SEEK the Kingdom of GOD! To Walk in Faith, knowing that the Kingdom of God goes forth in TRUTH & POWER with JESUS at the Throne, knowing that Jesus is in Charge. The Solution is not More Religion, but More of Christ's

Principles. the Bottom line is… We are either going for the Kingdom of GOD, or to a God Forsaken place, so Choose JESUS.

The descendent of HIS Holy Spirit was revealed in the Book of ACTS: Acts 2: 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.

Have Faith in Jesus our Redeemer and our Advocate, and also as a Friend, and by being joint Heir, I can trust Him knowing, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Hebrews 13: He said come to Him Boldly as HE sits on the Throne of Righteousness. To Boldly Proclaim Jesus, and also to identify that I am Son of the Most High.

Today we are just like the Diaspora, but instead of the transplanted Jews from Jerusalem, we are in America a land that is similar to Corinth comprising all “Foreigners” but thanks to the Grace of our Lord in Timothy 1: 8 We are saved by Grace for Obedience Verse 3 Praise to God for a LIVING HOPE.

Matthew 21:12

Jesus at the Temple

Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves.

13 “It is written,” hei said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.]

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus just as You did drive out the money changers and the robbers, we need this now in this world. Lord, today we seek Your Divine guidance, and we thank You for Your graciousness and Your Divine blessings upon our Visitors and us all. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus… Amen.

Living a fulfilled life, what is the secret?

John 15:6-10

If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. ...

Everything else is a compromise. One thing for sure, all ill-begotten wealth will soon be lost. Just the same for stealing someone’s design. I have a friend that his dad is a famous architect who design a building that is a landmark skyscraper, his design was stolen and sealed by another architect.  This was the action of the developer-owner, who subsequently lost the building and his bank that anchored the building. In fact, he was found guilty of fraud against the Banking commission and served prison time. This is the consequence of breaking the golden rule of honesty.

Galatians 6:7

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

Galatians 6:8

Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

Luke 10:25-37

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” He answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

So, to have a fulfilled life, Love God with all your heart and with all your soul and strength and with all your mind; and when enjoying a fulfilled life, remember to love your neighbor as yourself.

We know some neighbors are ‘hard’ to love… but we must overlook their faults, just as how Jesus overlooks our own faults.

Praise the Lord for a wonderful day ahead of us…make time to share the Good News, accept the providence of the Lord as he is faithful and He knows what we have need of, even before we ask.

Thank You Lord Jesus, as we come in Your Holy Presence. Bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Divine Grace and Your favors on each of us. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus… Amen.

Monday January 18th, 2021

There are things we can never do even if we try…

  • Test drive of being a Christian before accepting Christ.
  • Live a worldly life as a non-Christian but die as a Christian.
  • Deceiving the Lord, being untrue in a make-belief walk…

You cannot ‘Test-Drive’ being a Christian… to see if it works for you!

A Christian is a follower of Christ.  Being a Christian, you are not participating in “Christianity’ as Christianity is construed as a form of Religion. As a Follow of Christ, we are not a member of a religious group.  A Christian is a Child of God, as said …

Galatians 3:26
So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith,

Commentary:

1) To be in Fellowship with others,

2) Bringing the Good News to many,

3) Reaching out to others; we are privileged to serve our eternal sovereign God, and HE is faithful, and we can count on Him knowing that he is our Redeemer.

Reflecting back to the time when the Apostle Paul was imprisoned and taken before Felix the Governor. Paul spoke in his own defense of the charges against him, he made a frank confession of his faith in God, and how He was struck down on the road to Damascus and came to be a servant of Jesus his Lord. Felix heart was evidently touched by Paul’s statement, to the extent that Felix commanded his centurion to free Paul. But a few days later he ordered his unique prisoner to come and tell him more about his faith in Christ. After Paul pointed out to Felix the judgment to come, Felix was filled with fear and sent him away saying… go and I will call you when I have a more convenient time. To Felix the love of power, money, worldly lust, and pleasure had hardened his heart, and he did not repent when Paul told him about the Good News of Christ’ Salvation.

Many of us are like Felix, and we feel that the need to know our Lord and to accept His Grace is something we can do in a timely manner.

Unfortunately, none of us knows the future. In real life…  We tend to place the most important thing that we will ever own on a lesser value, this is our Soul, our actual being, that will live on forever. We place this at risk by not having the Assurance of the Redemption by our Lord that assures Life-Everlasting in a Place of Splendor.

The statement of a man who lost his wife, he responded to his friend that said…”I am sorry to hear that you lost your wife”, His reply? “Oh, I haven’t lost her, I know exactly where she is!”  This assertive response can only come from the follower of Jesus Christ; because we have the assurance that when we die, we will immediately be with our Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8

Text:                Ephesians 1: 10, 2:18, 3: 6, 10:12

2: 18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. The common unified message is that We are Redeemed and are made Heirs in Jesus our Lord.

No appointment necessary, come as you are… make the most important move you will ever make in your life… take the step of Faith now. Just say search me O God…

Psalm 139: Search me, God, and know my heart;
     test me and know my anxious thoughts.
     See if there is any offensive way in me,
     and lead me in the way everlasting.

Ephesians 3: 20-21

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday January 17, 2021 

Counting our blessing one by one… 

Instead of a divided country, as we see in the current event of the political landscape, we should be counting our blessings.  

The Pandemic contributed to the challenges of the citizens, but some politicians instead of solving the problem they are opposing the progress and using it to bolster their political base. 

Unfortunately, followers of one party do not stop to analyze the political intent of their party leaders.  

So, today we should stop and know that actions speak louder than word.  Give credit to where it is due. Stop and Praise the Lord that He is in charge and Greater is He in us that the politicians and their intent. 

Rely on the Lord, always; His Providence prevails, and It is ready to be received... 

What is God’s Providence? To some it may be the things that we are surrounded with, the things that He has provided for our daily lives.  But God’s Providence goes much further, it is the something that money cannot purchase. 

The Providence of the Lord is greater that the anything we can imagine.   

Remember Jesus said… All your needs will be met. Be patient do not do what Sara did. 

Thoughts for the day: God’s timeline is His, our timeline are usually flawed, and God knows what’s best for us all. 

Text: “The battle is not yours, but God’s. … Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah, and Jerusalem! Do not fear or be dismayed.   2 Chronicles 20:15, 17.”  

Commentary:    The lesson is being patient and wait on the Lord…  

God’s Covenant will never pass away, and His assurance in Chronicles and in Deuteronomy must be remembered and respected. And for us Gentiles, God made it clear in Romans 8:31-39 More Than Conquerors 

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 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?  

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

This “Priceless’ Gift is the gift that as Jesus said… John 14:2-3 (NKJV)  
2. 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. 3. 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. John 14:1-3 (in Context) 

 

Prayer: 

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come… Lord Jesus thank you today for making us Joint heirs in You to Your Father’s Kingdom.  Lord we are privileged to serve You and Lord bless our Visitors and grant us Your Providence as we lay up treasures in Heaven knowing that You Lord Jesus will be our rewards. In Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, we pray… Amen.

Saturday January 16, 2021

What can we do to help? The traditional greeting of…

Greeting someone by asking ‘Hi, how are you? and the person respond by saying the same. What have they accomplished?  Back when I first met my 94-year old neighbor, he said, Hi, I am your neighbor and is there anything I can do for you? Now, that is a heart felt greeting.

The intersections are commanded by pan handlers. And some are professional beggars, not to judge anyone, but observing someone parking his car a half block away and preparing to parade around with his sign of… I am hungry, and ending with the statement of ‘God Bless’  This gig has been worn out and more motorist are ignoring them.

Before we go on, many are truly homeless and in need of assistance,  by there are some…

And how many are secret millionaires just waiting to be exposed?

We have all heard the stories of panhandlers making hundreds of dollars in just a few hours. With a particularly bombastic storyteller, the number could even be in the thousands.

Usually, at the end of these stories, the panhandler drives back to his palatial home in a fancy car. Or, she removes her fake pregnant belly, lights up a cigarette, and gets into a car that picks her up.

While there’s a grain of truth in every story – in this case, that not every panhandler is homeless or even lacking for money.

Carrying a sign around is not begging, it is advertising, coming up to you and asking is begging, and when asked, one must give.

Luke 16:19-21

New International Version

The Rich Man and Lazarus

19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.

22 “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. 24 So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’

25 “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’

27 “He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my family, 28 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’

29 “Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’

30 “‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’

31 “He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’”

Father in Heaven… Thanks you Lord Jesus for Your Divine Grace. Lord we seek Your blessings on our Visitors and us all as we go in faith starting this new week. Lord thank You for leveling the mountains and straightening our pathways. In Your Holy Name we pray, to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forever… Amen.

Friday January 15. 2021

All the self-help books, motivational seminars, are they helpful? Yes, but without hope and faith in God, nothing works.

Coming to Jesus like a Child-like Faith is all He asked. 
Matthew 18:3

And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Factoid… While we live in what is known as the United States of America, yet it is a very divided country. We need to lead from the Lord’s creation…

The wonder of our Lord’s creation never ceases to amaze us, even the Locust fly in formation and will not wander from their ranks. This is why when they invade a field, they can eat the crop down in one swoop eating away a swath of vegetation. To think that these wild insects being so small but with a sense of order; they do not break ranks nor crowd each others, they work as a team.  Christian should adopt the order of God’s smallest insects, just like the Ants they are governed by hierarchy, and are very industrious, the leaf-cutting ants are an example of performing large-scale feats as they carry a leaf at least a hundred times their size.

Mark 10:15

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

1 Corinthians 13:11

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.

Luke 20:36 In Context 

and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God’s children, since they are children of the resurrection.

Yes, we are children of the Resurrection, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

There many self-help books on the ‘How to’

Here are a few…
Radically Happy
Declutter your mind.
The Gift of Forgiveness.

The Think and Grow Rich series by Napoleon Hill… Think and Grow Rich condenses them, providing the reader with 14 principles in the form of a "Philosophy of Achievement" The book asserts that desire, faith, and persistence can propel one to great heights if one can suppress negative thoughts and focus on long-term goals.

The 14 "Principles" listed in the book are:

  1. Thoughts are things.
  2. Desire
  3. Faith
  4. Autosuggestion
  5. Specialized Knowledge
  6. Imagination
  7. Organized Planning
  8. Decision
  9. Persistence

10. Power of the Master Mind

11. The Mystery of Sex Transmutation

12. The Subconscious Mind

13. The Brain

14. The Sixth Sense

There are several courses created from the Think and Grow Rich content and principles. Earl Nightingale co-created with Napoleon Hill a 30-minute audio summary of the book, titled "Think and Grow Rich: Instant Motivator".

While we have a host of self-help books, God gave us these keys to life… Jesus gave us these key pointers:

Matthew 6:33-34 New International Version

33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

In this passage of Scripture given by Jesus… all of what we need to know are outlined.  The theme of Jesus’ teaching is to Know Him, then with Him, there is no need to worry and  all our needs are met through His Grace.

The Word of the Lord is His Gift to us with authority, Power and are to be experienced not imagined. Because…

John 14:7

If you really know me, you will know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

Romans 5:2

through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.

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!

Romans 5:11

Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

What a Privilege our Lord has given you… Praise Him.

Prayer: Lord Jesus because of Your Grace, Your Love and Your Divine Redemption,  we are able to come through Your Righteousness to the Father. Lord bless our Visitors and take our burdens away as we shall not worry as Youi said, seek You first. Precious Savior, Jesus Messiah, come soon as we look to that day when we shall see You as You are. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Thursday January 14th, 2021

What worked… no longer works, retail, restaurant, and  cinemas are closing many permanently.  Churches are also experiencing closures. For churches we have solutions. Read more.

The Casinos are opened, but the Churches were banned from congregating, singing, and worshipping until the Supreme Court ordered the ban to be lifted.

For churches there is a solution to hold real services and not the ‘Virtual’ service. Church may install a Low-Power Broadcast radio station for under $300, Church goers can now drive up to the parking lot and tune into the Service. This will be more than the ‘Virtual’ internet services, as the attendance is at the Church parking lot that will constitute ‘the Body of Christ.

Being saved is like flying first-class. Have you ever flown First-Class? Some may say, this is a snobbish category of flyers… But there are distinct advantages flying in the forward cabin, such as:

  • First to board
  • Sitting in the front rows not after all the noise and the person coughing ahead of you
  • Getting on board first to access the overhead bins.
  • And also, first to leave the plane.

Why are we not our own?  The Bible said we are not our own; just as it is said “I chose you so that you might bear fruit, and these fruits will ‘Last’ and being His whatever we ask in His name He (Our Father ) will give us.  We are His to bring others to Him, the use of ‘Fruit’ is a metaphor of bringing others to Christ.

The Bible lays out the same scenario as a first-class ticket… Because our Lord said… Romans 8:1-2 New International Version (NIV)

Life Through the Spirit

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you[a] free from the law of sin and death.

This means that those in Christ will not be waiting in line for the Judgment, just like the First-Class amenities, we will have priority boarding because our Lord said, where He is there will those who are in Him.

Keynote: Ephesians 1:7  New King James Version (NKJV)

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.

Matthew 5:48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5:47-48 (in Context) Matthew 5 (Whole Chapter).

Acts 3:19 19 Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.

To know Christ… Repent (Turn from your sins) and by faith receive Jesus Christ into your heart and life and follow Him in obedience as your Lord and Savior.

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

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus as we acknowledge Your Sovereignty and Your Eminence on the Throne of Righteousness,  Your Word said, that You Lord Jesus is the only Mediator between man and the Father.  Lord we thank You for receiving us as we give You our praises. Lord, bless what is presented for Your Glory Lord, and we extend Your invitation by revealing the Good News of Your Salvation. Bless our Visitors, and let Your Grace be upon each one as we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Gaining the world and losing one’s soul?

Jesus asked this question as recorded in the three Gospels of…
Matthew 16:26

What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?

 Mark 8:36

What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?

  Luke 9:25

What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self?

The answer was also given by Jesus as He spoke of the rich man and the beggar Lazarus.

Luke 16:19 The Rich Man and Lazarus In Context |

“There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived-in luxury every day.

Our life here on earth is like the Journey in the wilderness to Canaan, the trip will appear to be long, but He will carry us through and point us to His Promised Land.

“You do not have to know the road; be sure you know the Guide.”

Text: Isaiah 30:21  (NKJV)

21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying,

“This is the way, walk in it,”

Whenever you turn to the right hand

Or whenever you turn to the left.

Commentary: Our Lord disclosed many things, including His promised of His Divine Guidance… (Isaiah 30:21); we know the one who is the Way himself (John 14:4-6).

John 14:4-6 (NKJV)

4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”

5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?”

6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Our Lord offered His Divine Providence and described what will be waiting for us at the end of the journey.  He even bought us at a price, se we are not our own.  He described us as chosen ones…. As the Scripture said, for we are a chosen generation…. 1 Peter 2:9

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

1 Corinthians 6:20

For you were bought at a price; therefore, glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Jesus knew our depth of belief, so He made it quite simple by saying… A simple sermon for seeking souls.

“Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13

Suggested Further Reading: Ecclesiastes 5:1-7.

For meditation: “God be merciful to me a sinner” was Christ’s description of a man calling upon God and being justified (Luke 18:13,14). Any insistence on special experiences and strange happenings is an evidence of having departed from Christ, the head of the church (Colossians 2:18,19).

Grace is by God’s Declaration… Believe it, Grace is what bought  & Redeemed you…

What is Grace?

"THE GRACE OF GOD" ... So, grace is favor, "unmerited favor." Salvation by Grace. Grace is, therefore, God's unmerited favor - His goodness toward those who have no claim on, nor reason to expect, divine favor. The principal manifestation of God's grace has been in the form of a gift.

Do we deserve Grace? No, we cannot earn it nor purchase it. Yes, you may be able to purchase an extension to an obligation, such as a note. But the note is still an obligation. But God’s Grace is a cancellation of the debt.

Praise Jesus for His mercies…

Prayer… Lord let me be humble and by brotherly love not pre-judge anyone, as You said let it be done on Earth as it is in Heaven; therefore, Lord use me and let Your Kingdom be broadened and grant our audience who seek You Lord Your Peace, as Your Said Lord...” You will never leave us nor forsake us”, To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore, in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus we pray… Amen.

Who want to do the “Global Reset”? What are their plans? Who will benefit? The intent of those who  want to control the currency, commence and the population? Will this ever be? Hope not…

These are the rhetoric’s that were proved wrong…

The Sun never set on the British Empire?  Today,  The British empire now consists of 13 territories that all are virtual nonessentials assets.

Marxism… We will surround America and it will fall. A statement that will never be realized…

Because we know this.

First, we will take Eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia. We will encircle the last bastion of capitalism, the United States of America. We will not need to fight. It will fall as a ripe fruit into our hands.” (Vladimir Ilyich Lenin)

The danger of Lenin’s mission… When a nation turns away from God, and evil forces seize control, influenced by external forces, the cire becomes rotten.  Many nations are experiencing this. 

The Forbes’ ® List of Billionaires needs to be disbanded. Why? Those who have amassed billions, do they need to move up the roster? Will the next Stock Market correction humble a few of these ultra-rich?  One thing for sure… whatever goes up must comes down. And for every action these is a reaction.

We are not against being wealthy,  but wealth when fused with ‘Power’ these two elements usually produced a prideful self-serving appetite to control others.

So, place your trust in God, as the old adage says… In God we Trust, and all others pay cash… This is so wrong, as trusting in God we have the opportunity of using our wealth to help others.

So, whoever wants to do the Global Re-Set, this is still superficial as such a reset will still be the same ole’ thing.

But, in the twinkling of an eye, things will change, and we shall be transformed…

1 Corinthians 15:52

in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

We do not have to wait to be changed, we can do this right now…

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here.

Romans 10:13

for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” In Context |

The most precious is Peace… What is a world without Peace? We already have it.

God can make it right.  So, pray for this.

Philippians 4:7 [Full Chapter]

and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

The mystery of the Holy Spirit revealed.

Romans 15:13

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Receive the Joy of the Lord in the Holy Spirit

Romans 14:17

for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Jesus in the Holy Trinity is the God of Peace…

Romans 15:33

Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.

Be victorious in Christ, be a victor and not a victim, for the Power and Grace of our Lord Jesus is greater in us than the evil one.

Romans 16:20  And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

His Promise:

Hebrews 7:25
Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father…  we are privileged to come as our Lord Jesus intercedes for us. Lord, we pray for our Visitors and we ask that Your will be done so that You may heal our land. we pray for the foreign interference be stopped, purge the evil doers. Lord we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

Monday: January 11th, 2021

The homeless population in the USA is over half a million with 50% living on the streets of California and the remainder in cities like, Washington DC, Boston, New York.

The Pacific Garden Mission… Since 1877, Pacific Garden Mission has fed multitudes of hungry and hurting people. Today we embrace men, women, and children experiencing homelessness with the compassion of Jesus Christ.  Connect with:  https://www.pgm.org/.

Since 1922 the Miami Rescue Mission | Broward Outreach Centers, The Caring Place, has served the homeless and needy of South Florida. Our Broward ...

The DREAM CENTER- Los Angeles, CA

https://www.linkedin.com/company/los-angeles-dream-center/

Founded in 1994, The Dream Center is a volunteer-driven organization that finds and fills the needs of over 40,000 individuals and families each month. Our mission is to connect broken people to a community of support by providing free resources and services that address immediate and long-term needs in the areas of homelessness, hunger, poverty, addiction, abuse, education, and human trafficking. The Dream Center serves as a resource center focused on providing support to those affected by these circumstances through residential and community outreach programs.

The Hoo Family, Sponsors of GOOD NEWS Forever would also like to introduce Carrefour Supportive Housing, to which the Hoo Family enabled the first Transition housing project to be built by the conveyance of a Grant transferred to Carrefour.  This built the first of their  Supportive housing projects.

While homelessness is an issue in the USA, we may think that this is unique to countries like the USA, even in the most affluent society such as Switzerland with 8,000, China: 2.5 Million, Indonesia 3,000,000, Nigeria 24 Million, India 1.7+ Million, Germany 650,000, HAITI: 2.4 Million Jordan= Zero. United Kingdom 307,000.

The root cause of the homeless population in the USA,  it is not that funds are not provided by the Federal government, but in most instances, misuse of funds, diversion of funds, and abuse by politicians through cronyism and abuse of the system. This is not just at the social housing level. But prevailing even in our school system. Our claims are backed by a case study to which the author can testify to massive miss use of funds by politicians.

In some way we can say Mary & Joseph were homeless in Bethlehem when they were turned away from the Inn and sent to a stable. But the Glory of God shone on them, as Jesus came as Emanual.

We have seen the results of homeless individuals being regenerated and becoming successful.  Some of the homeless individuals were once industry leaders, and from all walks of lives.

What we have here is the “Missing-Link” the Missing Link is Jesus.

John 15:5

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

Father in Heaven… Thanks you Lord Jesus for Your Divine Grace. Lord we seek Your blessings on our Visitors and us all as we go in faith starting this new week. Lord thank You for leveling the mountains and straightening our pathways. In Your Holy Name we pray, to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forever… Amen.

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday January 10th, 2021

Leaving time for Christ, is not what we should be doing. Go to Him First, then ‘leave’ time for others.

Remember our Lord gets the First Fruit, and do not keep the Lord waiting.

Often times at church service will begin a little late as there are late comers.  We must value the opportunity of coming in the presence of the Lord. Just like attending a function that the keynote speaker would be the president of a celebrity; in that instance most people would be on time or arriving early.

The traditional Rose Bowl parade in Pasadena, California will have 70,000 spectators seated before the commencement at 8 AM.  Unfortunately, this year the Tournament of Roses is cancelled due to Covid-19.

So, coming to service 16 minutes late should be adjusted as the Sunday morning services are the most important event of the day, and Jesus is the Preeminent head of the event.

We are to ‘give’ the time to the Lord, not ‘leaving’ time for Him.  If there was an invitation to have supper at the Whitehouse with the president, surely, we all would be on time as requested. So, attending church and having the Lord’s Supper that is more important than the Whitehouse dinner.

These are some of what we consider to be conduct as proper protocol in coming in the presence of the Father, and thanking our Lord in His Name…

Most prayers will proceed without acknowledging Jesus as our Mediator, as He Jesus said that whenever we gather in prayers, He is in the Midst. And as such, when ending our prayers, if is more appropriate to say “IN YOUR NAME” we Pray Lord Jesus, which is recognizing that He is present. The traditional ending of an abrupt ending of …’In Jesus name we pray’ is like saying He Jesus is not a part of the Prayer.

In writing a letter there is a ‘Salutation’  of ‘Dear so and so’, then there is an acknowledgement of the reader’s reading the letter and then there is an ending of thanking the reader and confirmation of our sincerely, etc. So, just like our letters, our prayers should be with…  Salutation, Praise & appreciation and expression of our Faith.

John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Luke 4:8

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.”

Luke 4:12

Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.”

Romans 5:10-12

New International Version

10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! 11 Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

Death Through Adam, Life Through Christ…

12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way, death came to all people, because all sinned— Jesus said…

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

Jeremiah 17: 7-8 Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord... He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream... Its leaves are always green, and it never fails to bear fruit" (17:7-8).

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus because of Your Divine Redemption we are privileges to come in the Holy Presence of our Father.  Father we thank You for our Redeemer Jesus. Messiah Whom You gave Him a place above all. Lord Jesus You are supreme and today we acknowledge You and worship You as it is by Your Grace that we are saved. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Divine Providence as we go in Faith. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Saturday January 9th, 2021

Make your days count, invest your time, not just use it, spending your time on the wrong thing is losing time. ‘Gain’ time by spending it wisely. Invest in God’s great commission, ‘He made you an Ambassador’.

Time spent cannot be redeemed.  Time is like our words.

Words… once spoken cannot be recalled, you can recall a car, but not words.

Some Words spoken is like a spent bullet, it is fired and does damage.

Word of Praise is like a poem, delivered in harmony and instead of damages, it heals the wound and calms the soul.

Word are expressions of our intention, and our intent should be good, and our expression should be of giving thanks to the Lord.

Today, as we express our gratitude to our Lord, we can come to Jesus without an appointment. This, we cannot do in the case of going to the dentist, the doctor, or even to service your car, you need an appointment.  But, when it comes to church, there is no need for an appointment, and right now we can impromptu go to the Lord at any time.

Psalm 37:4 [Full Chapter]

Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

What is the secret here? The ‘desires of the heart could be a lot of things, a big house, a luxury car, etc., could these be part of God’s supply? Maybe, all good things are from Him.

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.

2 Corinthians 9:8 In Context 

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.

What did we just read?

God will make His Grace flow freely upon you,  will you ‘Always’ have full sufficiency of all things in abundance? Yes, God did say this. But the caveat is… all in abundance for the good work that He has commissioned us to do.

As we seek the Lord, let us remember…

Romans 11: 33-36

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

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

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


Matthew 6:33
 [Full Chapter]

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (As well)

Prayer:

Father in Heaven, we pray in Jesus Name. Lord Jesus as You are in our midst, we acknowledge Your Holy Presence and give You Praises and thank You for interceding for us. Lord bless us and our Visitors as we go in Faith knowing that You said, You will supply all our needs according to Your Heavenly Riches. We thank You Lord and in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus we pray… Amen.

Friday January 8th, 2021

Finding what you love to do is 50% of a successful career.  Getting to do what you love to do is the big challenge, overcome the barriers… Start with Jesus.

We can modify the genes, breed hybrid plants, as our quest to produce a disease resistance plants, we have GMO etc. but, without God’s creation we have nothing. Without water, seed stocks, etc., we  have nothing to build on. 

Finding what we love to do could be defined as ‘Do-Nothing’ but this this accomplishes ‘zero’, so we set goals and implement this by a plan that requires resources, action and doing the right things.

Luck is just a notion of getting a favorable result from the endeavors, the success of the endeavor will be accomplished by preparedness, execution, and follow-through to derive the benefits of the project. To this end it is not ‘Luck’ it is where being prepared meeting the opportunity.

Success is an excellent end result, but when success yields to Pride, this is the new beginning that will not end well.

The Bible tells us of successful leaders, some got there through devious means, even murder, corruption, and abuse of power. Maybe this is a description of former kings…

Judges 9:

In Judges 9, we learn of the tyranny of Abimelech, who gained power by committing murder. God had not called him to a position of leadership. His carnal ambition and lust for power were his only call. He surrounded himself with a group of scoundrels who hastened his downfall.

History gives us examples of leaders of nations in our own century who have milked the economy instead of building it, stolen from the people and sent the money to the proverbial Swiss bank account. When things begin to crumble economically and politically, the leader gets in his private jet and flees to another country where he lives in comfort.

The global scene is changing, the quest and mission of Marxism is still alive, and communism by any other name is just a repackaging as their symbol which is still the Hammer and the sickle. So, as we consume 85% of what communist China produces, are we supporting their cause? The answer is yes.

Shopping for vitamin supplements, most labels do not disclose the source of origin, why? Probably it is made in China, so these are the ones that is passed over today. A great labeling to move product is to have “NOT MADE IN CHINA” in bold prints. COVID-19 was the kiss of death for China made supplements.

Today, in the USA we are energy independent, food sufficient, but yet 80+-% of vitamins are from china.

Is it because they can make it better? Certainly not, but they can make it cheaper by less regulations and sourcing the raw materials from sources that are not regulated. By short cutting the manufacturing process, eliminate many inspections and approval processes, this produces a riskier product.

 So, our devotional today is more a blog. But the core issue of achieving success through deception is caused by the lack of God in their intent. One thing we must never do is to envy those that got there by deception and frauds.

The fruits of deception end with an evil ending…

Hosea 10:12-14 New International Version

12 Sow righteousness for yourselves,
    reap the fruit of unfailing love,
and break up your unplowed ground;
    for it is time to seek the Lord,
until he comes
    and showers his righteousness on you.
13 But you have planted wickedness,
    you have reaped evil,
    you have eaten the fruit of deception.
Because you have depended on your own strength
    and on your many warriors,
14 the roar of battle will rise against your people,
    so that all your fortresses will be devastated—
as Shalman devastated Beth Arbel on the day of battle,
    when mothers were dashed to the ground with their children.

Praise the Lord for His mercies and His assurance that…

Philippians 1:20

I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.

2 Timothy 1:8

So, do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God.

Praise the Lord…

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and savior we come. Lord Jesus as You are at the right hand of the Father, we thank You for Your Divine Grace and Your Redemption.  Lord bless our Visitors and us all as we seek Your Divine Blessings on us all. To You Lord Jesus is the power and the Glory now and forevermore. Amen

Without laughter there is no progress… There is little success where there is little laughter. Andrew Carnegie. 

Laugh and Laughter is mentioned in the bible a total of 48 times. Sarah laughed as the Lord said she would bear a son.

Good News -His Faithfulness: The Word Becomes Flesh

John 1: 14-18

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’”

16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

The ‘WORD’ which is as spoken by God, when He said…Let there be Light; Jesus is the Light of the World (The world being us His Creation) Earth is just a planet, just like our bodies are just a ‘Tent’ housing the Spirit from God, as it is said we are a living—temple. We are made in His likeness and being in the Likeness of God, we never die, we are eternal, as we read when Jesus said… Father receive my Spirit, and as Stephen said Jesus receive my Spirit.  We will in Spirit transition to a place that is eternal.

EVENING:

And this is a choice that we must make… so the question is choosing whom you will serve.

Joshua 24:15 New King James Version (NKJV)

15 And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Paul said in 2nd Corinthians 12: 9 And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 10 Therefore I am well content with weaknesses,

Matthew 5:  21-27

True and False Disciples- 21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and, in your name, perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

Brothers and Sisters, Friends let us come to Christ and in simple Faith like a Child that trust the parents, let us be still and know that Jesus our Redeemer is God, let us Praise Him for His Love, His Grace and His Redemption that gave us Life-everlasting.  Let us also know that Jesus is the same Yesterday and Today and He is eternal, and we can come to Him boldly as He said… “Come unto me” as Children of the Most High, we can be wise and lay up treasures in Heaven and build on the ROCK. Because He is the Solid Rock.

Prayer: Father in Heaven we thank you in Jesus our Lord and savior who Redeemed us and placed us on the Solid Rock. Lord today be with us and our Visitors and grant us Your Divine Grace as we go with Your Peace. Thank You Lord for Your faithfulness as we ask Your Blessings and Your Providence on our Visitors and us all. In Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, we Pray and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen

Wednesday January 6th, 2021

Things to do for the rest of the years… keep yourself hydrated, drink 8-10 glasses of water, take your vitamins, eat more leafy green vegetables , Fish and fruits, lower sugar intake and exercise. Laugh a lot.

Lots of sleep is important … are we doing them to be healthy? Most of us maybe doing some of the above but nothing less than following the advice will get the result needed for a healthy lifestyle.

Just as we need to maintain the routine, we need to come to the Lord, but not in a ‘Routine’ manner. To come to the Lord  ritualistically without the Spiritual experience there would be no relationship being created.

Text:    Hebrews 11:1
[Faith in Action] Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1-3 (in Context) Hebrews 11 (Whole Chapter)

Theme:  He is Faithful…. John 3: 16 is probably the first scripture verse that we would learn in Sunday’s school… ‘For God so loved the world’, this short verse is so complete in a ‘Story of God’s Love and His Assurance.  Yet the simplicity of this ‘One-liner’ may have saved more sinners those other verses in the bible. Just like the favorite chorus… ‘Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so’-

Jesus said we are to come to him with the faith of a child.  A child’s trust is such an act of innocence; this is how the Savior said we are to approach Him.  During our Lord’s 33 years on earth, His walk with the Disciples were always on friendly cordial terms, no time ever did our Lord placed them in a ‘Me’ – ‘they’ situation, He referred to them as ‘Friends’ and as Joint Heirs, the human trace of ‘Familiarity breeds contempt’ has always been with us humans, but we must remind ourselves that Jesus is Supreme, and is God in One, and no one has ever seen God, except Him, and as Jesus said, “If you have seen me you have seen the Father”

Psalm 33:4
For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.

To receive His Peace, come to Christ today, just as you are…

To know Christ:  Repent (Turn from your sins) and by faith receive Jesus Christ into your heart and life and follow Him in obedience as your Lord and Savior.

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

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus name we come, Lord Jesus today as we seek Your Guidance and Your divine Providence in our lives, Lord let us be led by Your Holy Spirit.  Lord we look to that day in Faith, when You appear, we shall see You as You are, and we shall be transformed in the twinkling of an eye. Lord Your Word said, In You dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and we are complete in You Lord Jesus, and You are the head of all principalities and Power. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your favors as we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen

Tuesday January 5th, 2021

Waiting for the right time is probably not necessary, just as Moses was waiting of the right time to cross the Red Sea, God said ‘Just do it’

In life there are more opportunities than adversities, why? Because we sometimes ignore the opportunity, keep asking…

Are we too busy dealing with the challenges of life’s daily demands so that we are missing the opportunities?

Just go… Stop asking.  God told Moses to go… Stop asking, go and lead your people

Thoughts for the day:  Know when to Pray and when to move and carry out the mission

Text: Exodus 14: 13 Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the LORD will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14 The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

Commentary:

Our God is a God with logics, and He applies practical functions.  He parted the Red Sea for His people and He jammed the wheels of Pharaoh’s chariots. There are times when God is telling us to stop praying or stop looking and asking, why?  Because after we have made our request known we need to act on the request in

Faith knowing that whatever we ask in His Name, He will grant.

1 John 5:15

And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.

1 John 5:14-16 (in Context) 1 John 5 (Whole Chapter)

Just like when Moses was looking to God in: Exodus 14: 15-16 New International Version (NIV)

15 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. 16 Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground.

Waiting around is not what Jesus did. He was constantly on the move, by age Twelve He was already full of knowledge from His Father. We saw Him in the Synagogue questioning and answering the elders with authority, we saw Him over-turning the tables of the money changers in the Temple, and we saw Him healing many.

Jesus made things happen… He was not waiting for things to ‘happen’ He was proactive when He healed the Blind on the Sabbath. He willingly went to the Cross and He came back alive and spent 40 days with His disciples. 

Good News -His Faithfulness:

His plan for us is already laid, all we have to do is in Faith Trust Him.   No Due Diligence needed here because His Grace is given to us. Remember Grace is ‘Undeserved’, and it is by His Grace that we can have what Jesus offered…A Life and more Abundantly endowed by our Lord. We are His, as He purchased us at a price, and He lives in us.

So, let us do our due diligence in charting our future. In Christ He is our Sovereign God in One of the Holy Trinity, we can trust Him, He is the incomparable Lord, and Jesus is our Redeemer.
There is one Mediator between man and God, and He is Christ Jesus
Jesus is Sovereign & Eternal
Our Lord Jesus was there from the beginning of it all
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
We are made Joint-Heirs in Jesus to His Kingdom
We are saved by Grace and not of anything we do
His Blood of Atonement is the Seal of His Redemption
He went to prepare a place for us, and.
Jesus said He will return and those in Christ will be with Him forever

    Rejoice with Joy today knowing that the future is bright, because He Jesus is the Bright Morning Star, He is the Beginning and the End, and His ending is the beginning of what we refer to as; ‘The Best is yet to come’

    Principle: Our Redeemer lives…  Rejoice for He chose us.  Have Victory in Christ Jesus He is Faithful forever.

    Good News:

    Coming to the Lord:

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

    EVENING:

    Note: Our place in Heaven is endowed by our Lord Jesus who said… John 14:3And “if” I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:2-4 (in Context) John 14 (Whole Chapter)

    Conclusion:

    Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus because You were there from the beginning of it all, Lord you are the Great ‘I AM”, we thank You for Your Graciousness and Lord we thank You for Your divine Redemption. Lord we come in the shadow of the empty cross, but we know that were two or more are gathered, You are in our Midst… Lord thank You for sending the Holy Spirit, and let it be a ‘Day of Pentecost’ every day until You return. Lord we ask Your blessings on us all and for our many Visitors. Lord grants us Your Favors and equip us to serve as we are privileged to be a vessel for You. We pray in Your precious name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    DAILY DEVOTIONALS

    Monday January 4th, 2021

    As we start the New Year, what is the goal you have set? Set achievable goals. Set your sight on the results, seek the Lord’s guidance. Believe this…
    Mark 11:24

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

    While the above is true, to get a bumper crop, we must first prepare the soil, get the seeds, and plant them, they cannot produce unless we do our part.

    We also must water and nurture the plants to bear a crop.

    So, we our goals are God endowed when we choose the end results for good. Why?

    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.

    Let us analyze this…

    1. God works for the ‘good of those who love Him’
    2. God works for the good for…’those who have been called according to His purpose’

    So, the ‘Good’ is endowed to those who love Him, and the good will happen to those He has called for His purpose.

    Therefore, God recruited you to be in partnership with Him, as He endowed each of use…

    Philippians 4:13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

    Now knowing that all the above is what He taught us for an abundant life, let us have an intimate live with Christ, walk and talk with Him, give Him the Glory, and spread the Good News and let other know Him.

    Praise Him:

    Father in Jesus our Redeemer we come… Lord Jesus we thank You for Your Divine Grace and we ask Your blessing on our Visitors and us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forever… Amen.

    Charting the future, revising the business plans, preparing for challenges, and hoping for the best. Do this by doing what is said in Matthew 6:33

    Making a New year’s resolution is a promissory note to yourself that will not be repaid. These are the most frequently made resolutions:

    Exercise more
    Lose weight
    Get organized
    Learn a new skill or hobby 
    Live life to the fullest
    Save more money / spend less money
    Quit smoking
    Spend more time with family and friends
    Travel more
    10. Read more.

    If you made any of the above, revisit them in a few weeks and do a self-check.

    When the above is combined with the chores of everyday life, most of the above will be in a delinquent state. But we must remember that we have 365 days ahead to accomplish at least 50% of the list.

    As Winston Churchill said… “Never give up”

    Fortunately, Edison never gave up too…

    Thomas Edison's teachers said he was "too stupid to learn anything." He was fired from his first two jobs for being "non-productive." As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. On the 1,200 trial he succeeded. Today we have LED bulbs, but they still use the Edison screw.

    We should revise the above list by adding Bible to the 10th item and making it number one.

    Matthew 6:33-34 gives us the God’s secret to a wonderful life…

    Matthew 6:33

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

    Notice, the result will be… A: these things will be given to you “As Well”? why ‘as well? Because He comes first. So, when He is Preeminent in our lives, all things work together for Good.

    And remember He gets the First Fruit…

    Giving Thanks…

    Father in Heaven, in Jesus we come… Lord Jesus because of Your Righteousness we are privileged to come inYour Holy presence. Father we give You Preeminence in our lives and seek Your Divine blessings upon our Visitors and us all as we go in faith knowing that You Lord Jesus is the Author and Finisher of our Faith. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

    Things are getting more expensive… not really, it is the lower buying power of the money… This used to be called inflation. But inflation is now calculated differently so, we do not see the facts.

    As we look at the global pandemic and the ‘Stimulus’ packages to which trillions are spent to keep the economy going. The aftermath of all this will certainly create a new round of inflation.  As the currency loses it buying power it takes more money to just maintain the standard of living.

    The COVID-19 Pandemic a man-made disaster has disseminated families and businesses. The introduction of the Vaccine will take some time to conquer the outbreak on a global level. So, as not to throw fuel on the fire, there is now a more contagious version of the Virus.

    While the challenges imposed by the Covid-19 outbreak, we still have the assurance of the Lord…

    The Lord Protection is given, receive it and acknowledge His care.

    Psalm 34:7 The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.

    We have the Providence of the Lord…

    Philippians 4:19

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

    We are empowered by our Lord…

    Philippians 4:13 In Context

    I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

    Walk in the Light…

    1 John 1:7

    But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

    Prayer… Praise the Lord as we start this New Year with the assurance of our Lord Jesus. Lord we thank You and give You Preeminence and seek Your Divine blessings on our Visitors and us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.
