DAILY DEVOTIONALS

SUNDAY May 9, 2021

It is Mother’s Day…

On Mother’s Day we should remember our Mothers by not just sending roses, chocolate, or a gift, but to remember to thank her for her Faith in God that brought us up in the Light of our Lord.

A Christian Mother is one of the greatest influences in our lives…

Did you know the founder of Mother’s Day was childless her entire life? The official Mother’s Day holiday started in the 1900s as a result of the efforts of Anna Jarvis to honor her mom’s passing.  In May 1908 she organized the first official Mother’s Day celebration at a Methodist church in Grafton, West Virginia.

For those of us that are blessed with a Christian Mother we can truly thank our Lord for His Grace through our maternal Mom.

Nothing replaces the love of our Mom; a Mother is a Blessed person to bear a living being and to nurture and bring up her child under the guidance of our Lord.

Only the presence of our Lord in the homes of our mother brought the Grace that blossomed into the love of a Christian mother. 

History gave us mothers with a difference, our Christian Moms were loving, and caring, but there were mothers that were off the chart, like Nero’s mother that history said was a murderess. So, thank our Lord for Christian Moms, and remember that it is by the Grace of our Lord that she is saved and so are we.

Ephesians 2:1-10

New International Version (NIV)

Made Alive in Christ

 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith —and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Prayer…

Lord, we thank You for all the Mothers and especially the Christian Moms around the world and ask your continued blessings on all as they continue to bring their families to You Lord.

To You Lord is the Power and the Glory Lord Jesus… Amen.

Praise:

          Ending the Week, what a relief from the challenges, but in our quiet-time be on guard, of what?

Thank You Lord for ending another week as we look to gather in Your House of Worship to Praise You and to give You the Glory. 

Because of His faithfulness we have nothing to fear as His Word said…

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.

Claim Victory that is eternal, it is endowed to those who ask for it…

Focus:  Can you imagine that you can ‘Claim’ Victory, and not even earning it?  Victory is gained by ‘Winning’ and in Christ you have already won… Just Ask.

Paul wrote about winning the race…

1 Corinthians 9:24

Striving for a Crown] Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations

2 Timothy 4:7

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. In Context | Full Chapter | 

 

Hebrews 12:1

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

In Context | Full Chapter |

Ecclesiastes 9:11

I returned and saw under the sun that— The race is not to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, Nor favor to men of skill; But time and chance happen to them all.

In Context | Full Chapter |

The road to Victory…  It is by Faith

Hebrews 12:1 [Full Chapter]

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

Conclusion:

Faith is one of the most intangible elements… but Jesus said; ‘If we have Faith like a Mustard Seed, we can move mountains… Matthew 17:20

So, Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17:19-21 (in Context) Matthew 17

Imagine that our Lord said, if we have Faith as a Mustard seed, nothing will be impossible.  Just think if man knew how to apply the full power of Faith as described by Jesus, man would not be able to contain this power against his fellow men… but our Lord did make the power of Faith available to each of us, this is the Faith “in-HIM’ and as we trust in Him, and His Word said we will have Life-Everlasting, then at the right time, when life ceases on earth for us, the power of Faith is super-naturally released allowing all believers to transition to Him in the twinkling of an eye. 

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.

Tonight, as we end the day we place it all in the hands of our Lord.  According to His will a new day will dawn as we boldly say … Lord it is Your will and not ours so in Him we rest.

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 we come. Lord we Praise You and affirm that You our Redeemer lives, and we shall stand with You on that day Lord.  Lord we are privileged to be sought by You Lord as You called us and chose us to be Joint-Heirs in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus.  Lord bless this day as we go in faith for ending this week, as we look for opportunities to present You Lord as our Eternal Sovereign God in One of the Father in Your Holy Trinity. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Peace and as we thank You Lord for Your Providence in meeting our needs as You know what we have need of even before we ask. Lord be with us as we serve You and enlarge our mission field for Your Glory. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

 Friday 7th, 2021

Moses said “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent”, So, the Lord empowered him...

Yesterday we spoke of ‘fear of public-speaking’. Speaking to a king may even be more fearsome… Moses had no idea that God had chosen him to lead His people out of bondage.  We too are more or less like Moses, why? Maybe the Lord has chosen you to be a part of what He would like to accomplish, do you have any idea what that might be?

When Moses told the Lord that  “What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The Lord did not appear to you’?” Then the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?”

“A staff,” he replied.

Exodus 4:3

The Lord said, “Throw it on the ground.” Moses threw it on the ground and it became a snake, and he ran from it. In Context | Full Chapter | 

 

 Then the Lord said to him, “Reach out your hand and take it by the tail.” So Moses reached out and took hold of the snake and it turned back into a staff in his hand. “This,” said the Lord, “is so that they may believe that the Lord, the God of their fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has appeared to you.”

Then the Lord said, “Put your hand inside your cloak.” So Moses put his hand into his cloak, and when he took it out, the skin was leprous[a]—it had become as white as snow.

“Now put it back into your cloak,” he said. So Moses put his hand back into his cloak, and when he took it out, it was restored, like the rest of his flesh.

Then the Lord said, “If they do not believe you or pay attention to the first sign, they may believe the second. But if they do not believe these two signs or listen to you, take some water from the Nile and pour it on the dry ground. The water you take from the river will become blood on the ground.”

10 Moses said to the Lord, “Pardon your servant, Lord. I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.”

11 The Lord said to him, “Who gave human beings their mouths? Who makes them deaf or mute? Who gives them sight or makes them blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.”

13 But Moses said, “Pardon your servant, Lord. Please send someone else.”

14 Then the Lord’s anger burned against Moses and he said, “What about your brother, Aaron the Levite? I know he can speak well. He is already on his way to meet you, and he will be glad to see you.15 You shall speak to him and put words in his mouth; I will help both of you speak and will teach you what to do. 16 He will speak to the people for you, and it will be as if he were your mouth and as if you were God to him. 17 But take this staff in your hand so you can perform the signs with it.”

Even today, God through His Son Jesus is using ordinary people to perform His mission. God is not dead, He is alive, He is Omniscient, Omnipotent and is the same Yesterday and Today.

So be on the alert to watch and pray and to take the initiative following His lead.  We can play a minor role, but that minor role could be a major role in someone’s life. Share your ‘Great-Moments’ with the Lord, share it with others and see the outcome and changes that you could make.

So, today I want to share the Great-Moments I had, and this is coming to the Lord, and writing this piece to share God’s Power and His Love.

What God did in using Moses, He can and will use someone that we may know of, including yourself in fulfilling His prophecy, not that you or that someone will make any changes to the Will of the Lord, but to carry out His Will.

Ephesians 5:17

Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. In Context | Full Chapter

James 4:15

Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” In Context 

1 Thessalonians 4:15

According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. In Context 

So, today it is all according to the Lord’s Will, and we stand ready to be sent…

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

Belief is good, and when done in Faith, this is Divine. The adage by the Marxist would say ‘Belief is good, but control is better’. Karl Marx though he had control, but he lost it all. Yet ‘fools are following his dead-ended teaching.

Jesus said, “believe in me”, John 7:38

He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

Water.  Most of us take it for granted.  But have you ever taken a moment to stop and think just how important water is to you?  For the human body, water is truly a vital resource.  You can go weeks without food but only 5-7 days without water.  When the water in your body is reduced by just 1 percent, you become thirsty.  At 5 percent, muscle strength and endurance decline significantly, and you become hot and tired.  When the loss reaches 10 percent, delirium and blurred vision occur.  A 20 percent reduction results in death.  
  
There is no more important nutrient for our bodies than water.  No other substance is as widely involved in the processes and make-up of the body.  A man's body is about 60 percent water, and a woman's is approximately 50 percent.  Did you know that the human brain is about 75 percent water?  
 

  
Every day, we lose 2-3 quarts of water through urination, sweating and breathing.  Since many of the processes within the body rely greatly on water, it is important we replace our fluids regularly to compensate for this loss.  

Here are a few quotes on the value if friendships…

“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.”

― Helen Keller

“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art.... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”

― C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

“Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?”

― Abraham Lincoln

“If you have two friends in your lifetime, you're lucky. If you have one good friend, you're more than lucky.” ― S.E. Hinton

“The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Never leave a friend behind. Friends are all we have to get us through this life--and they are the only things from this world that we could hope to see in the next.”  ― Dean Koontz, Fear Nothing

“You can go through life and make new friends every year - every month practically - but there was never any substitute for those friendships of childhood that survive into adult years. Those are the ones in which we are bound to one another with hoops of steel.”

― Alexander McCall Smith, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity. – Khalil Gibran

The language of friendship is not words but meanings. – Henry David Thoreau

In prosperity our friends know us; in adversity we know our friends. – John Churton Collins

Note: Our place in Heaven is endowed by our Lord Jesus who said… John 14:3 And “if” I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. John 14:2-4 (in Context) John 14 (Whole Chapter)

Ephesians 2:10

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. In Context | Full Chapter |

Prayer:  Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come… Lord today as we gather together, we give You our Praises and we give You first-place in our lives. Lord, we thank you for being our Mediator and because of Your Righteousness Lord and Your Divine Redemption we are saved by Your Grace. We thank You Lord as we seek your blessings upon our Visitors and Your Divine Providence on us all.  To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Philippians 4:13New International Version (NIV)

13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength. †

We have so much to tell

May 5, 2021

Who is your best friend?  A Friend is one that does a favor without looking for a gain. Friends are gained when you extend your help and not seeking a gain in return.  Jesus said we are His Friend, and He is a true Friend as we have nothing to offer. Because He loves us, so we loved Him.

Love is natural, it is not staged, nor is it extended out of sympathy. Love is kind,  without envy and founded on brotherly admiration.

Do This… Try being gentle with humbleness, Jesus applied this throughout His time on earth…

Yes, we have what it takes to be ‘Proud full of Pride’… When you know Christ, you are a Chosen Generation a Royal-Priesthood. Should this set us apart? Certainly not. Jesus who came 2018 years ago, and during his 33 years with the latter 3 years being His ministry spent among the citizens of the towns and cities where He travelled, He never was full of Pride or exudes a superiority complex.

On the contrary, Jesus said to the centurion… why call me good? Matthew 19:17

So, He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.” In Context | Full Chapter |

On another occasion Jesus did turn over the tables of the money-changer, this was not an act of arrogance, It was an act of correction.

Even when He was about to raise Lazarus from the dead, He did this with a somber and humble approach, by giving His Father the Glory.

Reviewing these actions of our Almighty Messiah, or Redeemer, we should remember to be like Him, use His privileged gifts to bestow the Glory to Jesus who provides all our needs.  One of the ‘Need’ may not even be visible to those observing you walk with Christ, what could this be?  The Gift of God’s Eternal-Life that He had given you.  So, make this known to as many that in Christ, because if you do, this will be your reward…

Matthew 10:32   (The Word of the Lord, spoken by Jesus Himself)

Confess Christ Before Men] “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. In Context  | Full Chapter  | Verse 33: stated the opposite…  33 But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.

Jesus visited many cities, and some did not repent, He mentioned many and He said this of their future…” 24 But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you.”

Jesus; mission here was of Peace, Redemption and to assure us of His Grace that provides an Abundant life and a more Abundant life to come… through the following statement made by Jesus we should see His intent:

Matthew 11:

Jesus Gives True Rest

25 At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. 26 Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight27 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. 

28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

His special invitation is extended to all even now… Why now? You see even today Jesus’ message is still as fresh as it was 1,985 years ago when he spoke these Words. Why, because God through Him sent His Holy Spirit to dwell among us.  And it is the Holy Spirit that guides each of His followers.

So, knowing that you are blest, set apart and made a Joint Heirs in Christ, this should make you Bold and to let other know of the Redeeming-Grace of Jesus.

As we enter this New Year, let this aim to… ‘Know Christ and to make Him Known’ We are given God’s mission to be fruitful and multiply. Because our Almighty God is a God of Restoration, and we are given His mission to reproduce in His Name.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

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

Prayer… Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord let the city lights be dimmed in my view that I can see the glorious heavens that You have created by Your Divine Powers. Today Lord instill in me the presence of Your Holy Spirit and capture my ways, my thoughts, my all and let me shine as a beacon for You leading others to You my Lord, as You said let it be done on Earth as it is in Heaven therefore, Your Favor and your Divine Grace, be our Visitors and with each of us and grant us safety and as Your Said Lord.” You will never leave us nor forsake us”, To You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore, in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus we pray… Amen.

How can a donkey talk? Yes, he did… and therefore God said He would confuse many.

Numbers 22…

Balaam’s Donkey

21 Balaam got up in the morning, saddled his donkey and went with the Moabite officials. 22 But God was very angry when he went, and the angel of the Lord stood in the road to oppose him. Balaam was riding on his donkey, and his two servants were with him. 23 When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, it turned off the road into a field. Balaam beat it to get it back on the road.

24 Then the angel of the Lord stood in a narrow path through the vineyards, with walls on both sides. 25 When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it pressed close to the wall, crushing Balaam’s foot against it. So he beat the donkey again.

26 Then the angel of the Lord moved on ahead and stood in a narrow place where there was no room to turn, either to the right or to the left. 27 When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord, it lay down under Balaam, and he was angry and beat it with his staff. 28 Then the Lord opened the donkey’s mouth, and it said to Balaam, “What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?”

29 Balaam answered the donkey, “You have made a fool of me! If only I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now.”

30 The donkey said to Balaam, “Am I not your own donkey, which you have always ridden, to this day? Have I been in the habit of doing this to you?”

“No,” he said.

31 Then the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with his sword drawn. So he bowed low and fell facedown.

32 The angel of the Lord asked him, “Why have you beaten your donkey these three times? I have come here to oppose you because your path is a reckless one before me.[a] 33 The donkey saw me and turned away from me these three times. If it had not turned away, I would certainly have killed you by now, but I would have spared it.”

34 Balaam said to the angel of the Lord, “I have sinned. I did not realize you were standing in the road to oppose me. Now if you are displeased, I will go back.”

35 The angel of the Lord said to Balaam, “Go with the men, but speak only what I tell you.” So Balaam went with Balak’s officials.

36 When Balak heard that Balaam was coming, he went out to meet him at the Moabite town on the Arnon border, at the edge of his territory. 37 Balak said to Balaam, “Did I not send you an urgent summons? Why didn’t you come to me? Am I really not able to reward you?”

38 “Well, I have come to you now,” Balaam replied. “But I can’t say whatever I please. I must speak only what God puts in my mouth.”

39 Then Balaam went with Balak to Kiriath Huzoth. 40 Balak sacrificed cattle and sheep, and gave some to Balaam and the officials who were with him. 41 The next morning Balak took Balaam up to Bamoth Baal, and from there he could see the outskirts of the Israelite camp.

Commentary:

Balak was hiring Balaam to put a curse on the Israelites, but God had other plans and stopped Balaam from doing this, this infuriated Balak. So, in the realms of God’s plan He used even the donkey to direct Balaam.

God will use anyone, as He used the Persian king Cyrus to bring the Israelites from Babylon.

So, He can also use any of us.

Today, I am praising our Lord Jesus and thanking Him for the privilege of serving. Dear Lord Jesus bless our Visitors and us all… to You be the glory now and forever… Amen.

Integrity, Credibility and Goodwill are precious… A Tarnished image can be costly. Sometimes a giant industry falters for lack of not taking actions, and sometimes it is because of losing focus.

What is ‘GOODWILL’ it is an intangible asset. Sometimes the Goodwill Alpha Company can be affected by infringement and malicious defamation of slander and attack by a competitor. As blogs of lies and false contents posted by a competitor to undermine your personal Goodwill.

As in the case of the President of Whole Foods,

AUSTIN, Texas John Mackey, chairman and chief executive officer of Whole Foods Market while making his move to acquire Wild Oats… Using Pseudonym, Whole Foods CEO Bashes Wild Oats ...

https://www.supermarketnews.com › retail-amp-financial

During the years of Jesus’ ministry, all that the Sadducees and Pharisees did was to try and entrap Jesus.  They tried it with the woman caught in adultery, the healing of the blind and the miracles done on the Sabbath.

Jesus has all the Goodwill, and He did back it all up at the Cross.  The mockery and insults were all eliminated, what an amazing victory and the Resurrection from death.

Matthew 12:20

A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he has brought justice through to victory.

1 Corinthians 15:57

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 John 5:4

for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.

For as long as mankind, including each of our own lives, the greatest ‘Event’ (Not a story) is all about Jesus, His Virgin Birth, His Crucifixion, and His Divine Resurrection. As we reflect-back on the beginning of this year through today, the time is fleeting-by, so what is a thousand or so years in the sight of God? So, let us not be complacent and postpone coming to Christ.

Jesus is coming again… and some may say I have been hearing of this for eons, we also have been hearing of wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, just like what Jesus said, He also said; when the gospel is preached throughout the world then shall the end comes.

We may be there, or almost there, and believe what Jesus said, as His Word will never go unfulfilled.

So much we do not know…

Commentary: Millions of eggs are laid daily and from these eggs baby chicks are hatched in incubators for the broiler-chicken farms daily.  The question today how was the first chicken born without an egg?  If any of our readers have this answer, please email us and we will share the answer.  

Just like the Egg, and many more ‘un-answered’ questions that are mysteries to mere men, we still do not know how the exact speed of rotation for Planet Earth was determined. Earth spins at the equator at 1,038 miles per hour (1,670 kph). The mid-latitudes of the U.S. and Europe speed along at 700 to 900 mph.  The mystery is if Earth is rotating why are we not ‘falling off the planet’? The gravitational pull may be part of the answer, so above all; these grand designs of our Creator provided the uniqueness of His Creation.  

Notice the precise speed of Earth’s rotation is 1,038 MPH not 1,039 or 1,040 MPH... but precisely at 1,038 MPH; MIT, Harvard, Princeton, or any other Institutes of Technology could not arrive at the proper equation even in a billion years.  Therefore, the Chicken and the egg dilemma is considered a challenge to all, believers, or atheists. 

The answer is… We are commanded to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth… 

The other mystery of Gods Providence… 

Romans 9:23 

What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory—  

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 11:33-36  (NIV) 

Doxology 

33 Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! 
How unsearchable his judgments, 
and his paths beyond tracing out! 
34 “Who has known the mind of the Lord? 
Or who has been his counselor?”  
35 “Who has ever given to God, 
that God should repay them?”  
36 For from him and through him and for him are all things. 
To him be the glory forever! Amen. 

Following the Lord’s Providence, we must continue to know this… 

“For all is from him and through him and for him are all things”. To him be the glory forever! Amen. 

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord Jesus today we thank You for Your Divine Providence. We thank You for Your Graciousness and loving mercies. Lord we acknowledge Your Word that we are not to be anxious about anything, and in Prayer we come, seeking Your blessings on our Visitors and grant us all Your favors. We go in Faith, and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the  Glory now and forevermore. Amen.

SUNDAY

May 2, 2021

The Lord of Host is our Almighty God.  So, in the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Ghost, He invited us to come and Reason with Him,

The Word of God is not being rewritten here, it is an exercise to give clarity of the ‘HOLY SPIRIT’ which is Alive and is always present with us. Jesus in the Trinity of Father Son and Holy Ghost is Biblical correct as on the Day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit descended and as Jesus said, He would provide a comforter…

Jesus said, do you have any Fish? Why, Ghost do not eat.  He rose and our Father is alive as His Holy Spirit is alive.

Luke 24

New King James Version

36 Now as they said these things, Jesus Himself stood in the midst of them, and said to them, “Peace to you.” 37 But they were terrified and frightened, and supposed they had seen a spirit. 38 And He said to them, “Why are you troubled? And why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39 Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have.”

40 [j]When He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet. 41 But while they still did not believe for joy, and marveled, He said to them, “Have you any food here?” 42 So they gave Him a piece of a broiled fish [k]and some honeycomb. 43 And He took it and ate in their presence.

Jesus did this to prove that he was indeed alive as a spirit does not eat.

Text:  I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being. - Ephesians 3:16

Commentary:

Before our Lord Jesus came by a Virgin Birth, Jesus was made ‘The Christ’, many may believe that ‘Christ’ represent Jesus’ last name.  Our Lord Jesus, The Christ, why? Because He was Anointed and Made the Incarnate of God by His Father, our Creator.  And Jesus was there from the beginning of it all, and 2,012 years ago He was born as our Messiah.

To think that from Genesis 1, all of what God and His Son Jesus created was for mankind.  This is a world mired in sin because of Adam and Eve disobedience to God.  So, Jesus The Christ was predestined by His Father to Redeem us.  Even the initial act of God’s killing the animal to clothe Adam and Eve; this was the fore telling of Christ’s Sacrifice on the cross at Calvary. In spite of their disobedience and going against His command of not to eat of the forbidden tree, our God continued to love mankind.

Our Lord has endowed us with His creation, and even beyond this, He has provided a way for us to have the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit that dwells in us, so that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith; and that we when rooted and grounded in love we will able to know the breadth and length and height and depth of His Love. Then we will know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge and understanding.

We have these three major events of all times in the history of mankind…

  1. The day was 0000, when Christ was born, it became 01-01 Day One of our Calendar
  2. Thirty-Three Years after the Crucifixion of Jesus which we call ‘Good-Friday’, and.
  3. Three days after His death when the sun went day at noon for three hours, we have His Triumphant Resurrection which is Easter
  4. There is one more monumental event yet to come… and this is “The Day of The Lord” Because He said, I shall return. 

John 16:9-10

of sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more.

John 16:17

Then some of His disciples said among themselves, “What is this that He says to us, ‘A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me’; and, ‘because I go to the Father’?”

To make us eligible to be redeemed, He died in our place and rose triumphantly, and by this we became eligible though HIS resurrection and He offers this today as His Priceless Gift of Salvation.

Prayer: 

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity we come. Lord Jesus as we stand before the empty cross Lord, we acknowledge that You are on the Throne of Righteousness and Interceding for us Lord. Thank You Lord Jesus for Your Grace and Your Priceless Gift of Redemption.  Thank You Lord for the opportunity of serving You Lord; and thank You for our Visitors, grants us all Your blessings on each. Lord bless this day and let it be a day filled with your Peace as we ask Your blessing on us all and Your favors to our Visitors. Lord Jesus to you is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

SATURDAY

Be strong, be courageous, lean on the Lord, not on man, trust in the Lord and not on our own abilities, because without Christ we have none.

Who is the Lord? Is He the same Jesus that we read about, dressed in a white robe wearing sandals? While the Bible said… He is the same yesterday and forever, yet He will not be returning in His white robe, why? As we recall Mary could not recognize Him at the tomb, why? HE was in His Celestial Form. Let us read about who He is?...

Ezekiel 1: 27-28 NKJV

I saw that from what appeared to be his waist up he looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down he looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded him. Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking.

The text above stated… ‘This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord’. Remember in His kingdom there is no night, and He is the Light.

1 Corinthians 15:40 In Context | Full Chapter

There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another.

John 8:12

Dispute Over Jesus’ Testimony ] When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” In Context | Full Chapter 

Revelation 22:5

There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. In Context | Full Chapter 

Commentary:

All of our earthly achievements are like Henry Ford’s model T, even our latest inter-planetary space ships, our healthcare our satellites and our mode  of communications are out mode-obsolete. Yes, the Internet is still amazing as my email sent will arrive from Miami to China in seconds, my Wall Street Journal in my mail box this morning I can read from my iPad. And what I post today will be on line in a flash. Yet with all the advancements, God great mystery will be revealed as we shall see Him as He is…

On the first day when God said…”Let there be light”,  Yeshua/Jesus appeared. And there was light, remember the sun was not yet made until the fourth day.

Hebrews 4:14-16 New International Version (NIV) Jesus the Great High Priest

14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

John 1 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Eternal Word

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

Prayer:  Heavenly Father in Jesus our Redeemer and our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity, we come to seek Your Divine Guidance today.  Lord Jesus because You are on the Throne of Righteousness and intercedes for us Lord, we ask Your Blessing and we Thank You Lord for Your Graciousness.  Today as Your Good News are presented by Your Servants, we pray that the hearers will hear and that the messages will inspire all to come forward in Your Holy Name. Lord we thank You for our many Visitors, bless our Visitors and grant Your favors on each one. Lord Jesus bless this mission of Good News Forever that it will bear fruit for Your Glory.  We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory Now and Forevermore… Amen.

Friday

 Always be aware of who’s coming behind, but focus ahead and blaze a trail guided by the Lord.

Beware of this… 2 Corinthians 11:14

And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

Jesus rebuked the devil…

Mark 8:33

But when He had turned around and looked at His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, “Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.” In Context | Full Chapter |

Be mindful of this:

Ephesians 6:12

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. In Context | Full Chapter |

Be on the alert…

Luke 21:34

[ The Importance of Watching] “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed said with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. In Context | Full Chapter |

Today as we face the wiles of the evil one, we need to be armed…

Scientific prodigy – Blaise Pascal – He hid the Word of God in his vest…

Pascal's mother died when he was 3, and his father moved the family from Clermont-Ferrand, France, to Paris, where he homeschooled Blaise and his sister. By age 10, Pascal was doing original experiments in mathematics and physical science. To help his father, who was a tax collector, he invented the first calculating device (some call it the first "computer").

With this last invention, he had made a name for himself (at age 19!) and began his richly diverse scientific career. He tested the theories of Galileo and Torricelli (who discovered the principles of the barometer), culminating in his famous law of hydraulics, which states that pressure on the surface of a fluid is transmitted equally to every point in a fluid. He added important papers on the vacuum, on the weight and density of air, and the arithmetic triangle. He developed the theory of probability, which is still used today. He invented the syringe, the hydraulic lift, and is credited with inventing the wristwatch and mapping out the first bus route in Paris. It is said Pascal was embarrassed by his multiple talents.

"Night of fire"

All the while, Pascal was exploring the spiritual world, which was undergoing a revolution across Europe. While pietism flourished in Germany, and Wesleyan holiness spread through England, Catholic France was feeling the effects of Jansenism—a form of Augustinianism that taught predestination and divine grace, rather than good works, as vital for salvation.

In 1646 Pascal came in contact with Jansenism and introduced it to his sister, Jacqueline, who eventually entered the convent of Port-Royal, a center of Jansenism. Pascal, however, continued to struggle spiritually: he wrestled with the dichotomy between the world and God.

Then on November 23, 1654, Pascal experienced a "definitive conversion" during a vision of the crucifixion:

"From about half-past ten in the evening until about half-past twelve … FIRE … God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob, and not of the philosophers and savants. Certitude. Certitude. Feeling. Joy. Peace."

He recorded the experience (called the "Mé;morial") on a piece of parchment, which he carried with him the rest of his life, sewed inside his coat. He began a life-long association with Port-Royal—though he, unlike his sister, never became a "solitaire."

Passion for Christ

His greatest works are not only masterpieces of French prose but sterling defenses of the Christian faith.

Prayer… Lord Jesus today as we gather with all friends and families, we Thank You and Praise You for Your Graciousness knowing that it is only by Your Grace that we are saved and journeying to Your Kingdom, where You have prepared a place for us.

Jesus, You said…” I am not of this world” You ascended to Heaven, but You did not abandon us; You sent The Holy Spirit to be with us while You went to His Father. Lord we acknowledge the same Holy Spirit that descended on the day of Pentecost where 5,000 came to You Lord Jesus through Peter’s telling them the Good News, this Holy Spirit is with us right now.

Jesus, You have said… “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them”. 

Lord we thank You for our Visitors and we thank You for the privilege of serving You. Lord be with us today as we give You first place in our lives, to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Sunday April 25, 2021

The power of the Lord is often mistaken for granted, as it is customary to believe kindness is weakness.

Nice guys usually finished last?... Only in the Case where Christ is left out of the equations…

When we accept Christ the third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, will be living in him. When an individual accepts Christ as personal Savior, the Holy Spirit gives the believer the life of God, eternal life, which is really His very nature (Titus 3:52 Peter 1:4),

What a privilege the Father has given us through His Son. Jesus the Messiah.  Our Redeemer and our Mediator.

Thank Him today and give Jesus the Glory as we go in faith today knowing that in Christ we have passed from death to everlasting Life.

Thanking our Provider, our Redeemer and make Him the Author of your future in Faith.

Focus:  Give Thanks to the Lord for His ‘Priceless-Gift’… Praise Him for His Sovereignty, His Divine Grace and Redemption.  Thank him for His Unconditional Love. 

Today as many gather in His House of Worship, let us be reminded of ‘The Oneness in Christ’ that where one or more are gathered in His Name, Jesus is in our midst; and as we end our prayers, by saying “in Your Holy Name We Pray Lord Jesus’…. Not using the ‘third-party’ inference of saying…’In Jesus Name we pray’.  Why? Because He Jesus is already present.  He is not missing and absent in the Prayer.

We are not judging anyone, but we want to express the ‘Oneness’ in Christ in each of our Prayers.   Assuming your name is John, how would you like to be at supper and someone said speaking with you (John) and he end by saying… ‘Remember I am asking ‘John’ to provide what I asked? You certainly would say to yourself why is he referring to ‘John’ while he is already speaking with me (John) directly?  You may say this guy is nuts? Or is blind and not knowing he is speaking with John directly.

The sudden abrupt ending of Prayers by “In Jesus Name we pray” and not “IN ‘Your’ Name Lord Jesus we pray… I am sure our Lord will understand but He may be saying ‘Am I not in the presence of the Prayer’

Another example, you have just been ‘Knighted’ by the Queen, and you want to say ‘Thank you your majesty’ would you say’ thanks to the queen’?  I am sure her majesty would be insulted as you did not recognize her as the queen in your presence.

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.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father we thank You for sending Your Son Jesus.  Lord Jesus we gather to Praise You knowing that You are One with the Father, and Lord as we acknowledge You before all and affirm You as our Messiah, Redeemer, and Mediator, we seek Your Divine blessing on our Visitors and us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore... Amen

Saturday April 24, 2021

Usually a day to sleep-in, or too early to rise for a Road-Trip…

Fishing trips, a day by the beach or just laze around. A weekend seminar or visiting families.

My sister who lived north of Palm Beah, Florida, passed away last year... I occasionally listened to her voice mail giving me her time of arrival to visit us in Miami.

As we start a new week here at Good News Forever, it is a time to write the Topics for the week,

Our daily average Visitors have steadily climbed. And we are grateful as the Sites are bearing fruits.

We want to talk about the reference to the Epic-Event of the Birth of Christ.  We want to correct the record, as this is not the ‘Greatest Story ever told’… It is the Greatest Event ever occurred. So, when the Advent of Jesus as told from the Bible is classified as a story, we are absolutely debasing the True-Divine Events that has never been repeated.

The next this we want to comment on… Ending our prayer by saying in ‘Jesus’ name we Pray, this is a connotation that Jesus was not part to the Prayer. Remember Jesus, said no one comes to the Father unless through Him.  Therefore, you are already speaking with Jesus and it is appropriate to say… In You Holy Name Lord Jesus we Pray.

Jesus Christ did the same for you and us… He called yo

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. In Context | Full Chapter |

Prayer:  Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come… Lord today as we gather together, we give You our Praises and we give You first-place in our lives. Lord, we thank you for being our Mediator and because of Your Righteousness Lord and Your Divine Redemption we are saved by Your Grace. We thank You Lord as we seek your blessings upon our Visitors and Your Divine Providence on us all.  To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

u to be a member of Royalty…

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.

Friday April 23, 2021

Is your Pastor a ‘Shepherd’ of his congregation? Is he around after the service?

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: - John 10:27.

 

If your pastor does not know you how can you follow him?  How can you grow in the Body of Christ if there is no ‘Bond Servant’, knowing that…

 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me… —Galatians 2:20

Fellowship and unity may be as important as presenting the message.


Beware that a ‘too-busy’ pastor may need to look at oneself…

Jude 1:12

These people are blemishes at your love feasts, eating with you without the slightest qualm—shepherds who feed only themselves. They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted—twice dead,

 

Jesus spent His Three years of Ministry with His disciples and He walked among crowns and He inspired all. Even when the woman with the issue of blood, said…” If I could only touch the hem of his garment-I would be healed” and she did.

Text: Revelation 3:20  

Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and will dine with him, and he with Me.  Revelation 3:19-21 (in Context) 

 

Commentary: 

Behold my Jesus stands at the door and knock. While He can enter without opening the door, but He is calling me to receive Him, and His mission is to bring me Joy, as he said as I stand at the door and know and if I answers, He will come in and dine with me.  What a privilege this would be to sit at a table set by my Lord and to be just like when He sat at dinner with the disciples. 

Yes, my Jesus has been at my door and He came because He wants to give me Peace, Joy, Hope, His Love, His care, and His plan for my life.

 

Today as I gather with all my friends and families, I will Thank Him and Praise Him for His Graciousness knowing that it is only by His Grace that I am saved and journeying to His Kingdom, where He has prepared a place for me.

Jesus said…” I am not of this world” what did He mean by this statement? No need to wonder about this.  He ascended to Heaven, but He did not abandon us; He said The Holy Spirit would be with us while He went to His Father. The same Holy Spirit that descended on the day of Pentecost where 5,000 came to Jesus through Peter’s telling them the Good News, this Holy Spirit is with us right now.

Jesus said… “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them”.  Matthew 18: 20.

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

  • The exaltation by God the Father of Jesus our Sovereign Eternal Redeemer in the Holy Trinity
  • Let us acknowledge Jesus as Lord…
  • Let us give Thanks to the Lord for His mercies, His Gracious Gift and His coming Return…

Ending the week is a welcome break…

Spending the day… use it well make an impact by writing a note to a friend, share the Good News…

Every day is a day is a day of Praise, family gathering, and the traditional Is this describing a bygone day? Would you trade today for the past? the future is better, because of Jesus, the future will be unparalleled.

Today as we say… because of Jesus, the future will be better.

We once said to know of Jesus is one thing, but to know Him and accept Him is the real

Thing.

Here we read the historical interview of Albert Einstein in the Saturday Evening Post…

“I am a Jew, but I am enthralled by the luminous figure of the Nazarene…. No one can read the Gospels without feeling the actual presence of Jesus.”― Albert Einstein

Undoubtedly, Einstein knew of Jesus and believed that he existed and even was impressed by Jesus, but was this enough to say that Einstein was a believe?

The Jesus said…

John 3:3

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

John 3 New International Version (NIV)

3 Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.”

Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

“How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”

Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So, it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”

“How can this be?” Nicodemus asked.

10 “You are Israel’s teacher,” said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things? 11 Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still, you people do not accept our testimony. 12 I have spoken to you of earthly things, and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? 13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man. 14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”

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. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

The apostle Paul wrote, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you are bought with a price; therefore, glorify God in your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19–20).

When we accept Christ the third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, will be living in him. When an individual accepts Christ as personal Savior, the Holy Spirit gives the believer the life of God, eternal life, which is really His very nature (Titus 3:52 Peter 1:4),

What a privilege the Father has given us through His Son. Jesus the Messiah.  Our Redeemer and our Mediator.

Thank Him today and give Jesus the Glory as we go in faith today knowing that in Christ we have passed from death to everlasting Life.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father we thank You for sending Your Son Jesus.  Lord Jesus we gather to Praise You knowing that You are One with the Father, and Lord as we acknowledge You before all and affirm You as our Messiah, Redeemer, and Mediator, we seek Your Divine blessing on our Visitors and us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore... Amen

The beauty of a delicate orchid will last for weeks, an amazing arrangement prepared by our Creator…

Song of Solomon 2:1

A Country Girl in a Palace

am the rose of Sharon, And the lily of the valleys.

Psalm 50: 10-11

For every beast of the forest is Mine,
And the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I know all the birds of the mountains,
And the wild beasts of the field are Mine.

God’s creation featuring the intricate beauty surrounds us. 

Tomorrow being Earth-Day, the day dedicated to Earth and the Environment, with a focus on earth the creation and not on the Creator. The multi-cultural inter-faith and religious sectors participating in their dedication to earth, need to read…

Revelation 22:

Jesus Testifies to the Churches

12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the [f]Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

14 Blessed are those who [g]do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 [h]But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

A Warning

18  For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, [j]God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God[k] shall take away his part from the [l]Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

I Am Coming Quickly

20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be [m]with you all. Amen.

Let us be thankful for His mercies, His gracious Gift that is priceless… His Divine Redemption that will prepare each of us for that eventful day of meeting our Lord as He said… Surely I am coming quickly.

Philippians 4:13New International Version (NIV)

13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength. †

We have so much to tell…

  • The Love of God, through Jesus our Redeemer
  • The exaltation by God the Father of Jesus our Sovereign Eternal Redeemer in the Holy Trinity
  • Let us acknowledge Jesus as Lord…
  • Let us give Thanks to the Lord for His mercies, His Gracious Gift and His coming Return…

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

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

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

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

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

Psalm 46:10 

Verse  (Click for Chapter) New International Version
He says, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

A more important day to celebrate will be May 23rd, ‘The Day of Pentecost’… It commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles and other disciples following the Crucifixion, Resurrection, and Ascension of Jesus Christ (Acts of the Apostles, chapter 2), and it marks the beginning of the Christian church's mission to the world.


Tuesday: April 20, 2021

The work hours per day is 8 hours… We can only accomplish so much and no more. Will artificial intelligence work while we sleep? Would you trust it to work on its own?

Would you go to sleep in a ‘Self-Driving’ car on the way hope traveling over bridges and rivers?

Let talk about my friend who uses sleep aids every night. One night he went sleep walking, got in his big SUV, and hit a column and flipped it. Miraculously he survived. The following morning, we spoke, and I reminded him that his life was saved for a purpose and he was to search for the reason and treasure it, but to thank the Lord for keeping him protected.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mark 12:26

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

1 John 2:1

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

EVENING:

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

 

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

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

And:

Proverbs 16:18 (NKJV)

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

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

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

Prayers:

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

Monday April 10. 2021

Planning ahead no one can do this better than God…

Most plans are to make new discoveries, take a vacation and see the wonders of God’s creation, and some dream of  space travels. There are upcoming private Space tourism tours to the International Space Station a ten-day trip will be $20 million or $25 million dollars, why so expensive? A Space suit cost $150 Million.

So, what plans do you have? The best plan is to be ready to meet the Lord.  It is a plan that will be accomplished, sooner or later.

Futures dealing in commodities is to bet on the product price and the upcoming production. So, this is a form of planning by buying future contracts, or an Option to buy hoping for a price hike.

With God’s plan there are no Option contract, you must take it or leave it…you cannot barter with God, He is not in the business of trading, or deal making. But His promises are bonded guarantees, and He will fulfill all His promises. His promise is not for sale, and you cannot purchase His covenant.

 Kings 2:11

Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

The passage above depicted Elijah’s ascension to heaven… Nothing compared to this Rocket ship dating back to 550 BC.

On your way to meet the Lord, the tour my be more pleasant and a lot safer that what any space travel promoters can offer, presently one can book a ticket for a tour to the International Space Station, and it will be round trip flight,  the cost will be $25 million it will be a sub-orbital flight to about 200-240 miles above  earth and it will circumnavigate earth every 1.5 hour. Remember what goes up must come down, and the ISS will end in 2024.

Father as we plan for the future, we want to seek Your plan as nothing we conceive will be sustained, as only Your plan will prevail. Lord Jesus today we seek You and Your Divine blessings upon our Visitors. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday April 18, 2021

Finding peace in the midst of a turmoil…

Imagine the scene at Calvary… With the crowd chanting ‘Crucify Him’  Yet Jesus was at peace.  It is like the experience of a survivor of 9-11 when the Trade center towers were hit…  as told by a survivor who was trapped between floors while the buildings were on fire, she found a hole in the wall and extended her hand that someone grasped it and said to remain calm as she will be rescued, she held unto to him and when she was rescued she asked; where is Paul? The rescue team said there was no Paul among their team. She realized that ‘Paul’ was an angel.

Is there Joy in your heart? Find it in the Lord, He is sharing His Joy with you, get it… 

Joy is mentioned in the NIV Bible 244 times, and Joy is more than happiness that is temporary. 

When we Rejoice in the Lord we have ‘JOY’ because it come with Peace. Without Peace there can’t be happiness. In Christ we have His Peace that surpasses all understanding.  

What did the scripture mean by ‘a Peace that surpasses all understanding?’ It like being told that someone just stole your car, yet you are not in panic, because in faith you know that the Lord will provide a solution. Now if the car is stolen and your laptop is also gone, then this is something to think about, but, then there is nothing to worry about as your data is safe; because the laptop cannot be accessed without your facial recognition or your Password. The data is not lost as it is all backed up to the Cloud, and you can access all your files from your smartphone. 

So, remain in peace and remain calm as the vehicle �� is fully insured. Now, if it is not fully insured, rest assured that the partial coverage will pay enough to get a replacement vehicle. If it wasn’t insured, then you do have a problem, and this is where the rubber meets the road, and you really need the Lord’s help in resolving this. And, worse yet, your laptop is not locked, and your data is easily accessed, so take this as a message and make your Laptop password secure, and back up your data. 

Remain calm, because the Lord ‘Restores’, and His Providence abounds in those who loves Him.  

So, where’s the Good News here? It is founded on the Faithfulness of the Lord.  He always provides, and when you can count of the Faithfulness of the Lord because of His Grace, nothing can faze you. And in your heart will ring the melody of Joy.   

In Christ the Best is Yet to Come… Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 

1 Peter 1:13 NASB  Keep praying… 

2 Thessalonians 1:11 

To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power, 

Isaiah 52:8 

Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices, They shout joyfully together; For they will see with their own eyes When the Lord restores Zion. In Context  

Nehemiah 8:10 [Full Chapter] 

He also told them, “Go eat the best food, drink the best wine, and give something to those who have nothing, since this day is holy to our Lord. Don’t be sorrowful, because the joy of the Lord is your strength.”  

1 Peter 1:3 

[ Our Hope and Joy are in the Messiah ] Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah! Because of his great mercy he has granted us a new birth, resulting in an immortal hope through the resurrection of Jesus, the Messiah, from the dead.  

Eternal blessing and Joy. 

Psalm 21:6 

Indeed, you have given him eternal blessings; you will make him glad with the joy of your presence.   

Galatians 5:22 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  

Prayer: Lord Jesus, let Your Holy Spirit be upon us as we gather in Your Holy Presence through You to the Father, Lord, let us possess Your Joy, Your Peace, and be patient with kindness, goodness and remain in faith in You our Redeemer. Thank You Lord for our Visitors and grant each one Your Divine Providence, In Your Holy Name we pray, Jesus Messiah… Amen.

Have a wonderful week filled with God’s Blessings. 





Saturday April 17, 2021

Think of the day when there will be no more advertisement of pharmaceuticals, no addictions, no need of any.

Prescription drugs in 2015, an estimated 119.0 million Americans aged 12 or older used prescription psychotherapeutic drugs in the past year, representing 44.5 percent of the population. About 97.5 million people used pain relievers.

The legal drug pushers are the pharmaceutical company that are using the MDs to prescribe these addictive drugs.  We wrote about the use of Ritalin that is known to be addictive and causes compulsive disorders. Ritalin contains some of the properties of Cocaine.

Woes to the drug makers as they have brought the plague of addiction to a great portion of society. So, what are we doing about this? Money spent by these big-pharma though gifts, considered a legal bribe, lobbyist, and political donations etc., with this we are losing the battle against curbing legal prescriptive drugs.

When a trusted household name that almost everyone knows for their Baby’s product is fined for unlawfully promoting Opioid, and paying almost a ¾ Billion dollars in fines. What is driving these old-line companies to contribute to the narcotic problem? We can point to several factors…the absence of ethics. The absence of God, and the greed factor.

Praise the Lord that there will be a day when there will be no more pharmaceutical drug pushers. And there will be no dependency on medications. 

Conclusion:

Praise our Lord that we have the Gospels, Moses nor the 11 Disciples did not yet have the Good News of Jesus Crucifixion and Resurrection while they were with Him.  But they all saw the Omniscient of our Lord as Jesus spent Forty days with them before He ascended to Heaven.

We also have the Holy Spirit that Jesus said would be our ‘Comforter’ and as we go today, we can Praise our Living Eternal Sovereign Savior who has endowed us with his Grace and made us ‘Joint-Heirs’ in Him to His Kingdom.

Prayer: Father in Heaven in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come… Lord Jesus as we start this new week, we seek Your Divine grace upon us all, Lord bless our Visitors as we go in Faith knowing that You Lord is Omniscient, and all our needs are provided for by Your providence. Lord, we thank You and we give You first-place in all knowing that You Lord Jesus is the Author and Finisher of our faith as we acknowledge You before all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Friday April 16, 2021

Journey’s end… the name of an upscale waterfront  residential community, but it is just a development of ten-million-dollar homes…  If this was our journey in this life, it means that life ended with no continuance. Meaning lifeless.  But in Christ there is an everlasting life with a far better setting than the estate of Journey’s End.

Focus:  God’s grand Design, done in a Flash, because He is our Creator…

One could say the grand design is the world and its contents.  No… It was as He spoke; ‘Let there be Light” and appeared Yeshua/Jesus.  Yet God did say…

Genesis 1:26 [Full Chapter]

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

God trusted us so much that He gave His creation to us.  It did not take too long before the trust was broken.  The Bible stated that… Genesis 6: Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.

Commentary:

The Bible spoke about Adam and Eve and the events leading to Jesus coming as our Redeemer…In the book of Genesis, it did not take too long before we saw the first Sin, the first murder and so on…leading to the Flood, Sodom & Gomorrah, and the Kings and the kingdoms of Kings that ruled with good choices and some bad decisions, nothing in the history of mankind is telling us anything new.

 If we had Network News in the times of Cain & Abel, Noah and the Flood, there would be scoffers standing on the sidelines just as we have today. In fact, the scene of today could be integrated into the footage of Noah’s time if they had video. The subject of same sex marriages and the gay communities of history (which took place between 1446-1406BC) our cities of today is not much different from Corinth and Babylon. 

So, looking at today’s geo-political condition and humanity on a whole, we can say ‘change is constant’ but nothing is new. In fact, the latest automobiles and mode of transportation of today is old by Elijah’s standard… Why? He travelled by a ‘Chariot of Fire’ as we also read, when Elijah was surrounded by the Syrian armies, he prayed, and the Lord surround the mountain with an army with Chariots of Fire…. What are Chariots of Fire”, were they buggies with horses and in flames? I guess these were some forms of a vehicles with engines… remember the human vocabulary in the year 550 BC during the Babylonian empire lacked words like ‘Vehicle’ ‘spacecrafts’ ‘Rockets’ and Space was not known, as to many earth was flat. Galileo was imprisoned for saying the World was round…

So today we look to our Lord who is all Supreme and the Creator of all things…

His Promise:

Today I was reading a statement from Leroy Elms (Navigators) in which he reminds us that a Church without a Children’s program is a church that will be extinct within one generation, and so would be humans if we stopped having kids, in less than a century human would be extinct. 

This is why I am a supporter of Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) with a strong focus on a worldwide Children’s program that is a worldwide success.

Reflecting on our Lord’s invitation Jesus said… Matthew 19:14

 Jesus said, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven”.

Conclusion:

In the real world, many of us are facing trying times, the pressing needs for financial help, relationships, parents concerned about new school curriculum that are imposing life-style changes into the early-stage education process, and personal health issues. As if these were not enough even some Churches are compromising on the definition of marriage, No one is immune to any of these circumstances.

But we can have our Lord on our side, just like Elijah’s realization of the Power of God. 

As the Psalmist wrote… Psalm 103 (NIV)

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come and give you our Praises, for Great is Your Faithfulness… Lord Jesus today as we bring You the petition of releasing Your favors upon our Visitors that are seeking Your Peace Lord, grant them their needs and Lord, We Thank You for the privilege of serving You and bring the Message of Your Word Lord. Lord let what is being done be for Your Glory and for Your Kingdom, as we Lift You Up on High and Give You the Glory. Lord Jesus in Your precious name we pray, and to you is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Thursday April 15, 2021

The most luxurious homes, the fastest jets, the best cars, and the best healthcare, it is all free, where?

In the heavenly realms, where it is said… eyes have not seen nor can we imagine.

1 Corinthians 2:9

But as it is written: “What eye has not seen, and ear has not heard, and what has not entered the human heart, what God has prepared for those who love him,”

Thoughts for the Day:    Where is the most beautiful spot-on earth? Can you live there? Is life sustainable there?

TEXT:  1 Thessalonians 3:13 (NIV) 13 May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.

Good News: The Restored Eden is a place that eyes have not seen nor can we imagine the beauty of what Jesus described as “Paradise”

Genesis 2: 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”  because HIS words are powerful, he had to COME, not ‘SENT’ as we were taught that He ‘Sent his Son’ yes; there is a Holy Trinity as He said, that his father sent him, and “I am the way the truth and Life,

John 14:6 KJV Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”

John 14:2 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.

Remember that our Salvation is by Grace alone, our faith cannot save us.  Faith can be misplaced, a pilot flying could develop a feeling based on his own instinct ignoring the instrument that is telling him the correct reading.  Our instinct cannot be relied on, so when God gave us self-determination, He also allowed for our ’Human-errors’ factor. So, he made an over-riding Safety provision that is; ‘His Grace’, and once we have found His Grace and using our Faith in believing in His Grace of Salvation then we can never be lost.

Without the Cross there is no Salvation. Because Jesus came for this one purpose to die and to shed His Blood for our Sin. His Resurrection conquered death… We have to refocus as the real meaning of Christmas which has been lost due to the mass commercialization of Christmas as a ‘Shopping Season.

 Christianity has been ‘domesticated’ to make one ‘comfortable’, so the message is always… God loves you, without telling the consequences of sin. The message of the love of Christ is always good, but the message that God is also a God of a consuming fire… is often left out of the message.

  1. Deuteronomy 4:24

For the Lord, your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.

  1. Deuteronomy 9:3

Therefore, understand today that the Lord your God is He who goes over before you as a consuming fire. He will destroy them and bring them down before you; so, you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, as the Lord has said to you.

VICTORY:  1 John 5:3-4  (NKJV) For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

Ephesians 2:8-9 (NKJV)

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Romans 10:13  (NKJV)

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

Romans 8:28-29 (NKJV)

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

Deuteronomy 28:13

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

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

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

Why are you special? And unique?

 God said, Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you…  Jeremiah 1:5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you,     before you were born, I dedicated you,
    a prophet to the nations I appointed you.

 He knows you intimately. We are God’s workmanship which in the Greek means Polema translated means Poem or Poetry. Eph.2:10 

You are God’s poetry to him and the world. With all the beauty of a story written and performed before him.  He sees you as beautiful and wondrously made. Psalms 139:14

He desires a deep intimate relationship with you, in all of the different facets of you. Like a brilliant diamond you shine with all the colors you reflect.  He called you before the foundation of the world. Eph.1:4

He knows your heart and your desires. Seek him first and he will give you the desires of your heart.

In all your ways acknowledge him. He knows you and He sent his only begotten Son Jesus, to die for you while you were still in your sin. He knew your heart. He said I begun a good work in you, and he will finish it.

Just abide in Him and learn his language of love and faith. We all have a call that is uniquely fitted to our personality and gifting. This is where you find your greatest joy in doing what he has called you to do. He knows how to bring out the best in you.  

A little lesson about honesty…

Recently while pumping Gas, I noticed the pump ran over the amount  that I paid on my card, so, I went back inside and told the cashier that the pump did not stop at the $20.00 she said it was not supposed to stop until you had the $50 that you paid for. Now, assuming I wanted to cheat the station and drove away thinking I got ‘extra’ fuel when I stopped at $28.00 and drove away; I would have lost $22.00 without recourse. So, this is an example that Honesty pays…

Do not regret doing a good deed... Many years ago, a client came to our offices, made a deposit to purchase a commercial building, he did not show up for the closing, so our attorney said, here is the deposit that has been forfeited and it is now ours.  I said, give me the reason for the default, he said Mr. & Mrs. Williams had a freak-accident and they were both killed, I said let me have the phone number to call their family, a little boy answered the phone, so I said... I have some money here that you do not know about and I am having it paid to you. I instructed our attorneys to transfer the deposit of $20,000 to the son.  this was in 1975, that t $20,000 is now worth $100,375.00. I Take no credit for this deed, just a high degree of satisfaction of not keeping the deposit.

Grace is not measured by our performances. Nothing we do will impress God until we come to Him and know that He is God and in Faith     accept His Grace and Salvation.

Text: 1 Peter 4:12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Share the Sufferings of Christ

12 Beloved do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange things were happening to you.

Commentary:

There are several key factors that we need to know

God does not need our money

God does not need our help

God does not need anything from us, but He wants us to…

Love Him, as Jesus said to the crowd… Mark 12: 28-31

28 One of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had answered them well, asked Him, “What commandment is the foremost of all?” 29 Jesus answered,” The foremost is, ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord; 30 and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” 

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

To be unequally yoked, what are the consequences?

As said… hooking up a horse and a goat to a cart will not work. Not to be prejudiced but compatibility is a desirable outcome of all relationship. The classification of a non moslem is a definition of an ‘Infidel’ and the definition of a non-Christian is.. also an Infidel, a ‘non-believer ‘ or an Atheist, or agnostic.

In the Military…

Being an Infidel is a description of being sort of an enemy when a certain group may be hostile, and in Islamic customs one would be an enemy to be a non Muslim believer.

Being a Muslim or a Christian will not save anyone, as said religion will not save anyone. As an enlightened Christian you are  saved by Grace…

The word of Jesus declared that there is only One-Way to the Father, our almighty God.

2 Corinthians 6:15

And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

1 Timothy 5:8

But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Commentary:

Let’s state the facts first…

Fact One:          Only in Jesus you can be Redeemed from a future life of eternal damnation.

Fact Two:         Knowing ‘of’ Jesus is different from ‘Knowing’ our Lord

Fact Three:      If you do not ‘Know’ & ‘Accepted’ Him then you are not saved

Fact Four:         This is what an unrepentant Sinner that doesn’t know Jesus will hear…

Fact Five:          "Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drove out demons and perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'" - Matthew 7:22-23              These are the words of our Lord Jesus           

Fact Six:            Jesus Paid-It-All at Calvary, why? Because He (Jesus) the Son of God was pre-destined by The Father to Shed His Blood of Atonement for our Sin. 

Why do we need His Redemption, many may say, I am a member of my church, I have been Baptized, I am confirmed, and I do good works, I help the poor and I keep the commandment, so why do I need to acknowledge the Redemption?  Am IK being told that in spite of all the good things I do I will not be heaven bound? Yes, we did not say this, it is the Word of God… Jesus The Christ, The Incarnate God, He said this in Matthew 7: 22-23 (see above Text) of why you must come to Him, as He is the only way to His Kingdom.

The key Fact is that we cannot earn our way to His Kingdom, nor can we pay our way to His Kingdom, because all our  goodness is like a filthy rag, why, because we are all descendants of Adam, and when our fore-parent Adam and Eve sinned this sin passed down to us all, meaning we are all sinners.

His Promise:

The above Facts are eye-openers and are real in the realms of what each of us will face, but our Lord provided His GRACE, and by His Grace, ‘The Best is yet to Come’ when we KNOW our Lord Jesus.

Romans 8:1
[Free from Indwelling Sin] There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

His Faithfulness:

Romans 8: God’s Everlasting Love

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

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

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

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

Casting Pearls before swines, who said this? And why?

Jesus said it… what did He mean? Be equally yoked.

Beware… Do not cast your pearls before swine… Not Be unequally yoked, Darkness and Light cannot coexist.

These saying are not intended to invoke a superiority stance over non-believers, nor is it intended for us to judge others. Jesus said this because He knew the consequences and outcome of being unequally yoked.

The description of unequally ‘Yoked’ is to physically place a horse and goat hitched to a wagon.  Or trying to run a race between a championship stallion against a donkey.  Christians are special as they are called and set aside by the Blood of Christ.

Casting your ‘Pearls’ before swine is another metaphor used by our Lord… It is like taking a Stradivarius Violin and playing the best piece of music before a heard of pigs. What may happen, for one, they would not be listening, they would continue to splash in the mud and the herd may turn and trample you.

So, today being among any unbelievers, we will bear this warning in mind.  Yet Jesus said… We are to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth, and He will be with us till the end of time… Matthew 28:20

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

Matthew 13:49

This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous

So, when you feel trampled by the world, Jesus made this most astounding statement… “I am not of this World”

John 8:23

But he continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world.

Jesus’ Faithful Promise of His return.

1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 New International Version (NIV)

15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so, we will be with the Lord forever.

Let us focus on Jesus because He is the Light, Ezekiel 1:28

Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking.

Just like when Jesus asked…Whom do you seek? When He answered, “I Am” He, they all fell back, this was a contingent of Romans soldiers of about 500 strong, they all fell.  So, today we praise our Majestic Redeemer who is God in One of the Father.

Come to our Lord Jesus and asked to be Saved by His Grace, confess that you are a Sinner, and He will forgive you. Ask that His Holy Spirit be in you, as all Believers are made a ‘New Creation’ and the Power of God will resonate through you as you will experience His Gift of Life. Walk with our Lord Jesus, as all relationships must be nurtured, ask Jesus to lead you and to open your eyes and learn His WORD, Study the Bible, join a Bible Study* group, attend a Bible Based Church** and grow in His Grace.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus Messiah… Thank You for this privilege knowing that by Your Blood of Redemption we are saved from the wrath of God.  Thank You Lord for our Visitors and Your Divine Blessings on us all. In Your Holy Name Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore … Amen.

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday: April 11,2021

Because HE Lives… so will us all. He said you must be born again, and in Him all things are made new.

Our daily schedule can be pretty exciting or be bland with a mundane routine.  Today is a new day, and it is an exciting opportunity to do a lot of things that benefit oneself, our friends, and strangers. 

What is our mission today?  To share the Joy, or to indulge in the doom and gloom of the news? Our time is like a gold piece, we can spend it well or it can be squandered.

Consider this, choice #1: time spent in reaching out to friends, fellowship in Christ sharing the Good News of the gospel, or choice #2: spending time tinkering around, fixing gadgets, mowing the lawn, washing the car, shopping or just lazing around… we suggest a combination of 1&2 as fellowship is good mental exercise, but doing some chores will balance out the need to exercise, lazing around is also good as a power-nap can be beneficial to mind, body and soul.

The end result is…  everything in moderation. And yes… drink a lot of water to stay hydrated.

 Goals versus Values…  a good method of evaluating the use of our time… maybe the developer of COVID 19 did this study, the virus was probably released to reduce the population, and to  see how many people would take a vaccine that is not tested over a long period. What if such  vaccines intended to be the solution,  but conversely create side effects, then the exercise is successful in accomplishing their sinister plot. Rumors of blood clots from two of the top vaccines surely is a major concern. Think on this and not be influenced by our remarks, seek professional advice.

Our Goals versus Values is defined in the publishing of this daily Good News in three languages. Our goal is defined, and the value is evidenced by our loyal readers that rewards us with the satisfaction of a growing audience. We thank you all, and seek the Divine blessing of our Lord, and in His Name, we seek to be a messenger giving Jesus our Redeemer the Preeminent place in our lives.

Lord, we thank You for this wonderful day, a day of Praising You and giving You the Glory as we share Your loving mercies, Your Providence and Lord, bless our Visitors and us all as we go in Faith.  To You Lord Jesus is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Our advance technology is still primitive, compared to Jesus’ ascension.

Acts 1:10-12 New International Version

10 They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. 11 “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”

The Tech sector of the USA comprised of the social media, the Internet carriers, these ‘Tech’ groups believe that they control the information age.  

None of the executives, the chief Technical Officers or anyone can perform the feat of gravitational levitation like Jesus.  So, the top sports celebrities, entertainers and the so-called Hollywood celebrities may live in mansions, driving their supercars, and their private jets, once thing for sure, they cannot fly into a thunderstorm, drive the supercar over Ice or walk on water.

The declaration by one of the Beatles who said… that they were more popular than Jesus Christ… Guess where he is? dead, but Jesus lives on. 

So, our ‘Advanced’ technology is as we outlined yesterday… we are rowing in an ocean with a toothpick when it comes to Space exploration. As Jesus said…’He was not of this world’

In Awe we can come to our Lord without an internet connection and no social media or wireless phones needed.

Are we rowing in an ocean with a toothpick?

Creation versus evolution, no contest, God’s grand designs rule. Evolution is when the car paint fades.

The grand design of the universe is amazing, but when God created humans, He said

Genesis 1:26-27  (NKJV)

26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over [a]all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Being created in the image of God, this makes us all the most complex of all his creations.

Who is Jesus?

Faith in Christ is essential, Believe and accept the Lord’s Salvation, no matter who you are, one day you will need Him, Life is an ocean and there is a storm out there, you will need a beacon to guide you to a safe harbor.

Think on this: Jesus is the Light of the World and His Kingdom is Forever

TEXT:    John 1: 1-5 (NASB)

The Deity of Jesus Christ

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

On the first day God said…” Let there be light and there was Light” but He did not yet create the Sun, there was a diffusion of Light in a Gaseous form, but God declared let there be Light and then He said it was Good…

If the Sun was not yet created what was the source of this Light?  We must first look at John 1. In the Beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Now we see the Light that God Declared...  ”Let there be Light” This will be revealed as we go to chapter 9…There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

Colossians 1:15

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

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or [b]principalities or [c]powers. All things were created through Him and for Him

Prayer:

Father we come today in Jesus our Redeemer and our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity, Lord Jesus today we acknowledge that You are the Light of the World, and that on the first day, as our Creator said…”Let there be light” and there was light, Lord we also read that God our Creator did not create the Sun until the fourth day, so therefore Lord, it was Your Divine Radiance that illuminated the darkness. Lord, we thank you for Your Love and we are privileged to serve You knowing that You are the same yesterday and forever. Lord bless our Visitors, grant Your Favors to all Lord, as we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory, now and forevermore… Amen

So far, no other  habitable planet has been found. But Paul did say he knew a man that visited heaven.

Have we been to Mars? Or are we looking at Mars through a periscope.

Here we see…

 Corinthians 12:2

I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.

This event of Paul being caught up to the third heaven in the year 0055. Today it is 2021, and we have less knowledge about the Heavenly realms.

Are we rowing in an ocean with a toothpick? More or less, as we send out probes and receive radio signals that are gathered data giving us a glimpse of space by Radio telescopes signals. Received in binary codes then deciphered into printed images. The Bubble is an actual telescope that takes  sharp pictures.

What are we trying to prove here? The exercise is to expound the supremacy of God through the event of Christ’s action, His Ministry, His Sacrifice and His Miraculous Redemption.  It is well enough to acknowledge that He Rose from the dead. But this may be just like our knowing that in Spring the Flowers will bloom, and in the Fall there will be a big harvest of fruits and crops. Yes… We should stop and in Awe know that we mere humans can only wait on the crops, look forward to eating the fruits and there is nothing we can do to manufacture nourishment on our own. Not even Water, Air, or other essentials life-support. But we routinely think these are here for us to be used. So, stop and thank the Lord for His Mercies, His wonderful creations, and His providence.

But above all, Jesus said… Man should not live by Bread alone… Matthew 4:4

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’

Finally… we humans have not discovered any other habitable planets but hidden in plain sight is that new Eden that will be revealed just as how Paul said he saw things that were indescribable. As Paul said…  was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell. 

Prayer: Lord Jesus as we gather in Your Holy Presence, we thank You and in Awe acknowledge Your supremacy. As You said before Abraham was, You were with the Father. Lord today we gather with our Visitors and give You preeminence in all things. And to You be the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen

Yes… He is coming again. His promise is a guarantee… nothing can be truer. Keep watch.

We all had the ‘Written-Guarantee’ of a Lifetime Warranty… Most lifetime warranty are as good until the manufacturers go out of business. It is not intended to guarantee the lifetime of the product, as nothing lasts a lifetime.  But the Word of God will be eternal, and the promise of Jesus’ return is forever real.

So, for eons the ‘Return’ of the Lord has been preached. And yet, His re-emergence has not occurred. Let us be analytical about this. It has been only 1,988 years ago that Jesus ascended back to the Father.

 The first automobile was invented 135 years ago by Karl Benz, the city of Rome was founded April 21, 753 BC, and even today Rome is still a city ranking 11th among the best cities. The eternal City fell from 7th place to 11th.  The Book of Revelation was written AD 96 which is 1,925 years ago. It took the Voyager Space probe 10 years to do a flyby at Uranus. So, the Vastness of time and Space dwarfs out thinking, and so is the time of Jesus’ return, for to Him a thousand years is like a day. So, His return is Eminent, and we can bank on it.

What a day that will be… will it be like the experience of the disciples meeting Jesus after the resurrection? From the crucifixion? The Bible said the event will be a major earth-shattering event to be seen from the east to the west.
2 Peter 3:10

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Acts 1:11

Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

Prayer: Lord we come knowing that just as it was prophesied over 700 years before You came on that Holy Night 2,054 years ago. The Word of the Prophet Isaiah declaring You as our Redeemer, we look to that day when we shall see You. Lord we thank You for Your Grace and Your Divine gift of Life everlasting. Lord bless our Visitors as we go in faith knowing that all good things are from You and to You be the power and the glory now and forever. Amen.

The supremacy of Christ. He is no new kid  on the block…

To some of us ‘E’ means enough, but its reality it means empty…

It takes fuel to power the car, but it takes Grace + Faith + Redemption to get to that ‘Real Promise-Land’.

TEXT:    Colossians 1: 12-18 12 giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.

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

Jesus was seen by many after the Resurrection, He spent 40 days with the Disciples before Ascending to heaven.


Consider this… no one, none ever has made such an impact on mankind, no religious leaders, and dead or alive ever came back from death. Only Christ Jesus was at the time when he came 2,014 years ago, He was no ‘new-kid on the block’ He was there from the beginning of it all. At the creation when God said…” Let there be Light” and there was Light, this commandment by God was made before the Sun was made. So, the True-Light is Jesus the ‘Son” not the Sun.   Colossians 1: correctly described Jesus as our Preeminent God in One of the Father.

The Super-Natural Power of God can be seen in each of our lives, where?  We are a unique, He ‘Made’ us and breathed life into us.  This is His Spirit, and because He (God) is Holy, so should we.  But Sin came into the world and Sin is a blemished that we are all inherited; was God surprised of mankind’s waywardness? No, this is why Jesus came and His coming was not a last-minute decision by God. 700 years before Jesus was born Isaiah prophesied of Christ coming to be the Lamb of God…  Why is Jesus the Lamb of God? Just like the Lamb that was sacrificed on the night of the ‘Passover’ of the angel of death, the blood of the lamb protected the Israelite saving them. This is the forerunner of the coming “Passover’ by which the Blood of Christ will keep us safe on that day when the next ‘Passover’ comes… This is ‘The Day of The Lord”

Therefore, we are redeemed by the Atoning Blood of Jesus our Lord and Savior.

How do you receive His Divine Redemption? He said come unto Him and He will give you rest, The Bible said… All who calls on His name shall be saved, Jesus said He will never leave you nor forsake you.    

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.

Coming to the Lord:

We urge you to come to Christ today and experience His Divine Grace, and the Peace that he offers, as Jesus said…

John 14:27 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. In Context | Full Chapter |

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,

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

The devil thought that the crucifixion was the end of Jesus… but it was the epitaph for the evil one.

The Supremacy of Christ was manifested on the third day of the crucifixion on Resurrection Day.  As the Lord rose from the tomb, the majesty of Jesus the Christ provided deliverance and dominion over the devil.

John 3:12-16 (The Word of the Lord)

12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have eternal life.

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

Yes, as Believers will not perish, but the devil will perish…
Revelation 20:2

And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

Revelation 20:10

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

John 3:16 provided God’s declaration of Jesus as our Savior, and it is not by default that one will receive eternal life.  But we must choose, believe, and accept Him.

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.

Praise the Lord for His Mercies… By the Resurrection Jesus conquered death, He provided Life for today, Hope for Tomorrow and an Eternity for the Future.

Therefore, in Christ the Best is yet to come.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father thank You for Jesus our Redeemer. Lord Jesus as we say because You Lives, we too shall live.  Lord bless our Visitors and grant us Your Peace as we go in Faith making You the Author and Finisher of our Faith. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    The event following the resurrection of Jesus… Yes! He Lives

Jesus stayed with His disciples for forty days before ascending to Heaven.

Luke 24: 13-35 On the Road to Emmaus

13 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. 14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; 16 but they were kept from recognizing him.

17 He asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?” They stood still, their faces downcast. 18 One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”

19 “What things?” he asked. “About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. 20 The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; 21 but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel. And what is more, it is the third day since all this took place.22 In addition, some of our women amazed us. They went to the tomb early this morning23 but did not find his body. They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. 24 Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Jesus.”

25 He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?”27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.

28 As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued as if he were going farther. 29 But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So, he went in to stay with them.

30 When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it, and began to give it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. 32 They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”

33 They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with them, assembled together 34 and saying, “It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon.” 35 Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread.

After watching the movie… The Passion of the Christ.  The torture, the viciousness of the Roman soldier, the relentlessness of the persecution by the Jewish leaders, He was mocked and the final crucifixion among two thieves.  Yet, in all this, Jesus said… “Father forgive them for they know not what they do”

The message that Jesus left for his disciples to meet Him Matthew 28… Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

The amazing Grace of our Lord upon Peter by Christ, as the message to His disciples to meet Him in Galilee. He said and to ‘tell Peter too’ Imagine after the crucifixion and the denial of Peter, Jesus reached out to Peter.  And as we saw, the Lord restored Peter.

Luke 24: The Ascension of Jesus

50 When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted his hands and blessed them.51 While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven. 52 Then they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. 53 And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God.

The immense Power of God…   The Return of the Lord.

Acts 1:11

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

Prayer: Father… Thank You for sending Jesus our Redeemer. Lord Jesus it is in Awe that we cannot say enough of Your Faithfulness and Your Graciousness as You said… Father forgive them as they know not what they do. Lord, Thank You and accept our Spirit and fill us with Your Divine Grace as we say… Blessed Assurance that Your Jesus is Eternal and I You we delight ourselves. Lord bless our Visitors as this ministry grows only for Your Glory. To You Lord Jesus is the Power ads the Glory forevermore… Amen.

Resurrection Morning… Jesus Rose-Triumphantly, and It will also be for all His followers.

Resurrection Morning is a day like no other day in the History of mankind.  We need to stop and think on this as no one has ever returned from the dead, except Jesus.  Jesus said, “I am not of this world” His Kingdom is from another place John 19: Verse 38.  When we consider the Miracle of Jesus’ Resurrection, we need to measure what He also said, “In Him we shall also have Life and Life abundantly… and By His Blood we are cleansed and by His Grace we are Saved.

Matthew 28:6, Mark 16:6.  Luke 24: 5, John 20: 1 All these Scriptures testify to the Risen Savior.

Commentary: READ ABOUT HIS RESURRECTION: This is an event that has never been repeated, and as we read that Jesus who is “The Great I AM” that rose Triumphantly, and because He is Risen, we shall also Live as we are made in His Likeness.

OK, now that He is Risen… What or why do I have to be aware of this?

1. Because He Died in our place by His Blood as a Sacrifice for us.

2. If we come to Him and repent of our Sin, He is Faithful and Just to forgive us our Sin, then you may say, so what? I know I am a Sinner and I need to have Forgiveness, but how will this stop me from committing any more sin as so many things are around to attract me and lure me into future Sin. Yes, this is true, but we need to know if we genuinely repented of our sin and come to Christ and in Faith Accepts Him as our Lord and Savior, He will Redeem us, and His Redemption is forever.

We need to be aware that even when we are saved by Jesus, as it is only by His Divine Grace that is now SEALED by HIS BLOOD, this seal can never be removed, but we must live in Faith and not be ignorant to continue in our sinful way… but we are human and are not able to save ourselves, so He provided a way for us to overcome the temptation.

Many of us will say I did not need this, why? Many may not feel that they are sinners, because one may say, “I live a good life, I do not steal, I am faithful, and I even attend church or Temple of even a Mosque. And I saw no reason why Jesus had to die for me.  You may recall that God created Adam and Eve, and when they went against God’s command, this was the first sin against God, and all of us are descendants from Adam, no; we did not evolve from a primate, God created Man and Woman, and this is where it all began.

Read about the event that took place when Jesus said, “It Is Finished” This is important to us in modern times…

  1. The Curtain (The Veil) of the Temple was Torn…
  2. The Sun went dark for Three (3) Hours, this was Noon until 3 PM; this event never repeated itself as this would be sheer panic in places like Manhattan, NY or Paris or any major cities.
  3. The Temple Veil was torn as Jesus became the High-Priest and the Veil of the Temple that separated the Inner Tabernacle where the Priest performed his Blood Sacrifice was replaced by Jesus who Ascended to the Throne of Righteousness where He (Jesus) intercedes on our behalf to God our Father, remember, No one comes to the Father unless through Jesus His Son, who is God in One of His Holy Trinity.

These events in the Bible are not stories to be told as historical events, they are all part of God’s plan for our lives, in fact our Living ‘Being’ our SOUL that lives on.

Therefore, Jesus’ dying on the cross is the parallel of the Sacrificial Lamb at the Passover that saved the first born of His people.  The Blood of Jesus that was shed at Calvary is His ‘SEAL’ that we receive when we receive Him as our Redeemer.  Jesus our Redeemer was no mere man, He is God incarnate, and He is Lord of all…

Prayer: Father Words cannot express what Jesus our Redeemer; our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity did for us. Lord today as we Praise You and know that You are on the Throne of Righteousness, Your unconditional love for us overwhelms us as You Paid-It-All… Lord we receive Your Divine Grace and place all in Your Holy hands, Lord we dedicate ourselves to You Lord that You will increase and we shall decrease as You are Pre-Eminent and all things are held together by You and without You Lord Jesus nothing was made. We commit this day to you Lord. Be with us and especially our Visitors that Your Priceless Gift will be received by many. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to you are the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Amazing… Imagine the sun went dark for three hours when Jesus was crucified…

Matthew 27:45

The Death of Jesus] From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. In Context | Full Chapter |

Matthew 27:51

At that moment, the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split. 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. In Context | Full Chapter |

﷟HYPERLINK "http://www.biblegateway.com/audio/mclean/niv/John.19"

New International Version (NIV)

We want to present Luke’s version of the Crucifixion, which covered it in more detail as Luke mentioned that the Sun was darken for 3 Hours, and …32 Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. 33 When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots. (as His coat was seam free woven in one piece) also….  39 One of the criminals who hung their hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”

40 But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? 41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”

42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

43 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Luke 26 -49

The Crucifixion of Jesus

26 As the soldiers led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus. 27 Many people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him. 28 Jesus turned and said to them, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children. 29 For the time will come when you will say, ‘Blessed are the childless women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’ 30 Then

“‘they will say to the mountains, “Fall on us!”
    and to the hills, “Cover us!”’

31 For if people do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?”

32 Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. 33 When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

35 The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, “He saved others; let him save himself if he is God’s Messiah, the Chosen One.”

36 The soldiers also came up and mocked him. They offered him wine vinegar 37 and said, “If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself.”

38 There was a written notice above him, which read: this is the king of the Jews.

39 One of the criminals who hung their hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”

40 But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? 41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”

42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

43 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

The Death of Jesus

44 It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, 45 for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.46 Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last.

47 The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God, and said, “Surely this was a righteous man.” 48 When all the people who had gathered to witness this sight saw what took place, they beat their breasts and went away. 49 But all those who knew him, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savor we come… Lord Jesus Messiah, we affirm You as God in One of the Father, we Praise You and thank You for Your Divine Grace. Lord as we look to Resurrection Morning knowing that You our Redeemer lives and all in You Jesus will also by Your Resurrection. Lord Jesus we thank You for our Visitors and ask Your Divine blessing on us all, to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Wonder why?   Why is today called ‘Good’, a day when our Lord was crucified? Because He died to save sinners…

Focus: Jesus’ Sacrifice on the Cross for our Sins… Thanks to our Redeemer

Text:  John 19: 28 Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Commentary: Today is Good Friday…  How could we call this day Good?  A day that our Lord Jesus was arrested, flogged, Mocked and crown with a ‘crown’ of thorn, and they slapped our Lord…

Jesus restrained His power and endured the torture for our sake.   Remember that over 7 centuries before Jesus was born the prophet Isaiah foretold about the Crucifixion of Jesus in Isaiah 53

The Crucifixion was a day that has never been seen again when the Sun went dark at noon for three hours

John 18:28-36   Jesus before Pilate

28 Then the Jewish leaders took Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness they did not enter the palace, because they wanted to be able to eat the Passover. 29 So Pilate came out to them and asked, “What charges are you bringing against this man?”

30 “If he were not a criminal,” they replied, “we would not have handed him over to you.”

31 Pilate said, “Take him yourselves and judge him by your own law.”

“But we have no right to execute anyone,” they objected. 32 This took place to fulfill what Jesus had said about the kind of death he was going to die.

33 Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?”

34 “Is that your own idea,” Jesus asked, “or did others talk to you about me?”

35 “Am I a Jew?” Pilate replied. “Your own people and chief priests handed you over to me. What is it you have done?”

36 Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.”

John 19: 16- 42 The Crucifixion of Jesus

So, the soldiers took charge of Jesus. 17 Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). 18 There they crucified him, and with him two others—one on each side and Jesus in the middle.

19 Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS. 

25 Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman, here is your son,” 27 and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.

The Death of Jesus

28 Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

The Burial of Jesus

38 Later, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus. Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jewish leaders. With Pilate’s permission, he came and took the body away. 39 He was accompanied by Nicodemus, the man who earlier had visited Jesus at night. Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds. 40 Taking Jesus’ body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs. 41 At the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid. 42 Because it was the Jewish day of Preparation and since the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Risen Lord we come.  Lord we affirm today that our Redeemer lives, and You Lord Jesus is on the Throne of Righteousness. Lord as You intercede for us, we come and Praise You as we look forward to Resurrection Day, a day that You our Lord Rose Triumphantly. Lord we thank You for Your Redemption and by Your Grace we can look to that day when we shall see You as You are.  Lord bless our Visitors as we seek Your Divine Blessings and Your Favors to us all. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen

Imagine 600+ soldiers falling as Jesus said…” I AM HE”

Jesus Arrested…

Text:  John 18 1-5 (NIV) When he had finished praying, Jesus left with his disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was a garden, and he and his disciples went into it.

Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples. So Judas came to the garden, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and the Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns, and weapons.

Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, “Who is it you want?”

“Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied.

“I am he,” Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.) When Jesus said, “I am he,” they drew back and fell to the ground.

Commentary:  Our Lord is such a Humble Supreme God, who willingly submitted to these ‘mere mortals’ that thought they were so powerful, factually they had no power over Him. Because Jesus came for One-Reason, to Redeem us by His Blood, we need to know that Blood was a part of the Cleansing and preparation of the High Priest before coming to God. Therefore, Jesus was the sacrifice made just like a Lamb and His Blood was shed for the Atonement of our Sins…

Many of us will say I did not need this, why? Many may not feel that they are sinners, because one may say, “I live a good life, I do not steal, I am faithful, and I even attend church or Temple of even a Mosque. And I saw no reason why Jesus had to die for me.  You may recall that God created Adam and Eve, and when they went against God’s command, this was the first sin against God, and all of us are descendants from Adam, no; we did not evolve from a primate, God created Man and Woman, and this is where it all began.

Principle: But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 New International Version (NIV)

 

His Promise / His Faithfulness: John 17: 20-36 Jesus Prays for All Believers

20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. 

24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.

25 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26 I have made you have known to them and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

Conclusion: What would you pray for if God said,” Ask Me what would you like me to do for you now? (Now this request will be answered in the twinkling of an eye) would you ask: (a) to be with Him today> or would you ask (b) that your earthly needs be met, or would you ask (c) Him to give you wisdom to reach many for Him?

Tomorrow we will be reading about His Crucifixion… a day called “Good Friday” as a child this was the most confusing description for this day, as I would say what is good about this Friday? It is the day that they crucified our Lord… Why is it called ‘Good’, But it is a factual Good-Friday as this is the day that Salvation came to mankind, this is the day that Jesus Paid-It-All….

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come.   Lord Jesus today as we reflect on the day at Calvary, the event of the day marks the 2nd most important event in our history, the first was when you Came Lord on that first Christmas day, and the third most important event is Your divine Resurrection, all of these events cannot be repeated as only You our Lord is Divine, Supreme and Eternal. Lord we thank You for Your Grace and Your Divine Redemption, Lord thank you for the many Visitors and bless each and every one as we look to that day when we shall see You Lord Jesus. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You are the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Judas…. The betrayal… I have not met anyone named Judas; parents do not use this name.

The Plot to Betray Jesus, are we also doing this today?

Text:  Matthew 26 (NIV)

The Plot Against Jesus

26 When Jesus had finished saying all these things, he said to his disciples, “As you know, the Passover is two days away—and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified.”

Then the chief priests and the elders of the people assembled in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, and they to arrest Jesus secretly and kill him.“But not during the festival,” they said, “or there may be a riot among the people.”

Jesus Anointed at Bethany

While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of Simon the Leper, a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.

When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked. “This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.”

10 Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. 11 The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me. 12 When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial.13 Truly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”

Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus

14 Then one of the Twelve—the one called Judas Iscariot—went to the chief priests 15 and asked, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver him over to you?” So, they counted out for him thirty pieces of silver. 16 From then on Judas watched for an opportunity to hand him over.

This week we are focused on The Betrayal, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection of our Lord.  Why did Jesus suffer the injustice of men?  Why did He not just ascend back to his Father? If He had done so without His Sacrifice at Calvary, we would all be eternally condemned and destined to eternal damnation.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

Is Judas the only guilty one? Who betrayed God’s trust first?  Adam & Eve, both were equally guilty, what we found in Genesis, Adam blamed God for giving him the woman, and Eve blames the serpent.  Notice no one said they were sorry…. Judas did throw the 30 pieces of silver away and committed suicide in a fit of remorse and guilt. Today we are just about doing the same when we go against the will of our Lord. What is His will? To love Him with all our heart, and to love our neighbors, even when they are not the most compatible ones.

Our sins are not hidden, why, as descendants from Adam, we all are sinners, and you may say how about those that have never heard the Gospel? Are they still sinners? And if they have never heard the Good News of Christ Redemption on the Cross, will they be condemned to eternal damnation?  Our God is a God of Love and Justice, He will take care of those…

Conclusion: When Jesus returns, He will be seen from the East to the west.  His return will not be to ‘walk among us’ This will be…’The Day of The Lord’ and when He returns Grace will expire, Abraham said to God, “What if you found 10 good in Sodom, will you save Sodom? He said… Yes, but there were not 10 but the Angels took LOT and his wife and Lot’s two daughters and then destroyed Sodom, Lot wife went against God’s instruction, not to look back at the city, she did and was turned into a pillar of salt.

On the day of the Lord, Earth will be laid bare, and those in Christ will be caught up in the air and be taken to His Kingdom. We did not make this up, read about this in 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.  2 Peter 3:9-11 (in Context) 2 Peter 3 (Whole Chapter)

Prayer: Heavenly Father, In Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord Jesus thanks to You for Your Graciousness and we acknowledge that You Paid It All… Lord thank You for the Privilege of knowing that by your Grace we are saved and by Your Blood of Atonement we are cleansed. Lord, Your Grace abides with us as You Intercedes to the Father and until that day Lord when we shall be transformed in a Sanctified place where there will be no more Sin Your Grace and Holy Presence will be forever abiding. Lord thank you for Your Divine Redemption, We Praise You Lord and Lift You up before all, as You said we will never be ashamed in trusting You and all things are possible in Your Name Lord, for those that loves You.  Lord thank You for our Visitors as we ask your Blessings on all, and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Devotionals for Tuesday:  March 30th, 2021

The devil trembles when the Name of Christ is called… Call on Jesus more frequently.

Nahum 1:5

The mountains quake before him and the hills melt away. The earth trembles at his presence, the world and all who live in it. In Context | Full Chapter |

God created us with ‘Free-Will’

You may say I did not ask to be born… aren’t you happy to be alive?  History reveals the future, and what is the future for each of us? Who made an impact of your life, if you had a choice which famous person would you like to be like?

One could choose from the biblical time to be like Joseph, Moses, David or best yet to emulate Jesus.  We are all would not choose the Pre-Crucifixion Jesus, but we would prefer to be the Risen Christ.

Guess what, He died in our place, so we did not have to go to the cross. And through his Redemption we are made whole and as Joint-Heirs.

We are made more than Conquerors by His Love and His Divine Sacrifice.  For those that say...” I did not ask to be born, Jesus Died for you and you may ask, “I did not ask that Jesus die for me”, But He died so that you may accept His Grace and His Redemption.  You may also say why do I need to be redeemed? Unless you came from another plant and are not considered from the linage of Adam then you do not need to be ‘Redeemed’. 

You need His Redemption because as Adam sinned so we all are born with that inherent blemish called Sin.  God made a way for us to receive His Pardon by His Grace and by the Blood of Jesus, we receive His Shield that is able to protect you and us on that great Passover day on the Day of the Lord, when Earth will be left bare, destroyed and desolate.

 

But God in His infinite love for you and we sent Jesus His Son to go to the Cross and by His Blood we are saved through Faith and this is not by anything we do, but it is by His Grace that we are saved.

Ephesians 2:8-9(NKJV)

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

Luke 23:44-46  (NKJV)

Jesus Dies on the Cross

44 Now it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45 Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two. 46 And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit.’ Having said this, He breathed His last.

Focus: John 18: 4-4 NKJV

The Power of the Almighty is seen here… as they came to arrest Jesus, we see His Power by just His answer; “I AM HE”

 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that would come upon Him, went forward and said to them, “Whom are you seeking?”

They answered Him, “Jesus of Nazareth.”

Jesus said to them, “I am He.” And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stood with them. Now when He said to them, “I am He,” they drew back and fell to the ground.

Jesus who willingly went to the cross for us took our sins to the cross and by His Blood we are saved as His Blood is a deposit to Redeem us.

Revelation 1:5

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

EVENING:

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Ephesians 2:13

But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

Conclusion:

Pray... Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner, and I believe and accept that You died for my sins, and by Your Blood that was shed at Calvary, I am Saved by Your Grace. Lord Jesus let Your Holy Spirit come into my heart and change me and by Your Divine Resurrection You are The Sovereign God, I receive You Lord Jesus as my Savior and Lord, I accept Your Priceless Gift of Salvation and trusting You Lord Jesus, and know that it is only by Your Grace that I am saved, I pray in Your Holy name Lord Jesus as my Redeemer... Amen.

We thank you for coming to our Lord and Savior, who is our Redeemer.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord we thank You for this Privilege of bringing Your Good News and Lord bless our Visitors and be with us as we go in Faith. Lord let Your providence be upon us all as we give You thanks and in You we have Victory, Father in Heaven we thank You in Jesus our Lord and Savior for our Visitors and  Lord grant Your Blessings on us all, In Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is 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 





for Monday:  March 29, 2021 

 The reason why Christ came…  He came to save sinners like myself and everyone. 

 Facts: 

  • We are all sinners, because of One-Man’s sins…
  • Christ came to Redeem us, and by His Blood we are Saved
  • Jesus said, ‘You must be Born-Again’ and He came that we could be and have engrafted us into the Family of Abraham.

As we celebrate Easter a time of Renewal through the Divine Resurrection of Jesus.  We reflect on the prophecy written over 700+ years before Jesus came…

Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. ... 

Surely, he took up our pain and bore our suffering, 

yet we considered him punished by God, 

    stricken by him and afflicted. 

5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, 

    he was crushed for our iniquities; 

the punishment that brought us peace was on him, 

    and by his wounds we are healed. 

6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, 

    each of us has turned to our own way; 

and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. 

 7 He was oppressed and afflicted, 

    yet he did not open his mouth; 

he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, 

    and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, 

    so, he did not open his mouth. 

 8 By oppression[a] and judgment he was taken away. 

    Yet who of his generation protested? 

For he was cut off from the land of the living; 

    for the transgression of my people he was punished. [b] 

9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked, 

    and with the rich in his death, 

though he had done no violence, 

    nor was any deceit in his mouth. 

 

10 Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, 

    and though the Lord makes[c] his life an offering for sin, 

he will see his offspring and prolong his days, 

    and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand. 

 

11 After he has suffered, 

    he will see the light of life[d] and be satisfied[e]; 

by his knowledge[f] my righteous servant will justify many, 

    and he will bear their iniquities. 

 

12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, [g] 

    and he will divide the spoils with the strong, [h] 

because he poured out his life unto death, 

    and was numbered with the transgressors. 

For he bore the sin of many, 

    and made intercession for the transgressors. (End of Text)  

Jesus our Redeemer came and… 

Luke 4:18  Jesus reading in the Temple 

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, In Context |  

 

The greatest event ever. Through the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus. 

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. In Context | Full Chapter |  

So, today as we affirm the Victory of our Lord and Savior, by His Grace we are made Rich by His Priceless Gift. 

Share the Good News and live victoriously in Him…  Praise the Lord Jesus and thank Him for His Priceless Gift. 

Philippians 4. 4-9 

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

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

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

 

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

The 400 Years of Silence broken…. No! He did not forget us… and He is still hearing us. His responses we acknowledge everyday, as He Grace is sufficient.

DAILY DEVOTIONAL

Sunday March 28, 2021

The 400 Years of Silence broken…. No! He did not forget us… and He is still hearing us. His responses we acknowledge everyday, as His Grace is sufficient.

There was a period of silence for 400 years until Jesus came… The Gospel is the Good News of Christ’s redemption...

Commentary:  The Gospel is the Good News, this is the ‘Best’ News you will ever hear in your entire lifetime…The message is Jesus Christ came into this world to save sinners. Yes, our Lord came from His Kingdom of Paradise to become poor for our sake that through His poverty we will be rich.  Yes, when you Know Him you are rich in His Grace, and His Grace is all you need, as He said He will never leave you nor forget you.

Matthew, Mark, Luke & John referred to as the Gospel and as the synoptic-gospels, there were a period of 400 years referred to as the ‘Silent-Years’ from the end of the Old Testament period to Matthew announcing the Birth of our Savior, and these events are ratified and affirmed. But there is more than just the Teaching of Jesus, it reveals His Deity His Father’s Divine Affirmation of Jesus as the Beloved Son of GOD.

2 Peter 1:16-18

 PETER gave testimony of his own personal experience as he witnessed this when Jesus was Glorified before them.

The Trustworthy Prophetic Word

16 For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” 18 And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.

Sometimes you might wonder why did God not make you a famous person or a wealthy individual, and why are you just a simple wage-earner?  Stop and reflect, maybe you are very wealthy in the sight of God. Are you leading others to our Lord? Are you building His Kingdom by His Precepts? If so, this is Good; if not, what is the real purpose of your life? We have the great commission from our Lord. Love your neighbor as yourself. 

1 Timothy 1:15

15 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.

Grace brings Freedom through the Holy Spirit – Follow the Spirit

2nd Corinth. 4: 7 Our Treasures are in Jars of Clay and must be exposed to let others see the Gift of The Holy Spirit.

 In today’s hustle & bustle it is hard to stop and reflect on the Grace that we have from our Lord.  Grace is defined as ‘UN-Merited’; while we face the challenges of this world, our Lord God in His infinite power sent His Son Jesus to redeem us…. 2 Corinthians 8: For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

2 Corinthians 2:14
But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere.

While the world undergoes the turmoil of war, rumors of war and terrorism, we have Hope (mentioned 121 times in the KJV and 159 times in the NIV Bibles.)

  • JOY: Joy is mentioned 244 times in the Bible, considering the announcement of our Savior’s Birth… Luke 2:10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.
  • FAITH: Romans 1:17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” 

  • HOPE              1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. Our hope in Christ founded on…  2 Corinthians 2: 14

  • TRIUMPH:     Revelation 17:14 They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”

2 Corinthians 9:8
And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus my Lord my Savior my Messiah I come… Lord today as I start this day, I seek You and Lord let all of the proceedings be built on You my Rock, Lord what is planned for today, let it be from You my Jesus as You will lay that cornerstone.  Lord let the Cap rock be visible bearing the emblem of The Cross which is not just a symbol, but it is the masthead filled with Your Holy Spirit.

 Lord we thank You for our Visitors and ask Your Blessings upon each and every one as we go in Faith knowing that all things work for Good to those that love You Lord Jesus.  We pray in Your Holy Name our Sovereigns Eternal God in One of the Father and Your Holy Spirit. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Abundant Grace… 1 Timothy 1:14

And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

How underserving, yet…His Grace abounds. His Love, and His Providence He also gave…

‘I am from the Government and I am here to help you’… how does this offer stack up to the offer from our Lord Jesus? 

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

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

Commentary: Offer number one may be valid, but the extent of help will be temporary, the offer from Jesus is a ‘permanent’ solution…In life we can be enabled by an enabler or be empowered by the source of Power.

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

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

 2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV)

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

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

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

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

When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. James 4:2-4 (in Context) James 4 (Whole Chapter)

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

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

Today 2017 years later, the same assurance is endowed to us… So, we can thank our Faithful Lord and Savior Jesus because He is the same yesterday, today and forever.  How do we know this? Hebrews 13:8

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

Principle: 1 Peter 1:25 But the word of the Lord endures forever.” Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you. 1 Peter 1:24-25 (in Context) 1 Peter 1 (Whole Chapter) 

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

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

Conclusion:  If you are travelling on a country road and the signage is inadequate with no road maps, no GPS, it is a challenge to find your destination.  Driving for 6 hours from Germany to Geneva Switzerland and arriving at 4 AM, I was unfamiliar with the city, I saw a police station and asked directions, the officer said…” follow me” he turned on his flasher and led me to my hotel. I was very grateful after the long drive.  Today we are travelling on a journey to where?  The destination we all seek is a place of splendor that we believers are looking at our journey’s end. Angels of our Lord is standing by to ‘guide’ us home.  This is what our Lord Jesus said, and His Word is forever.

John 14:6

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:5-7 (in Context) John 14 (Whole Chapter) 

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come.  Lord thank You that You are the Truth, the Way and in You we have Life-Everlasting. Lord thank You that our journey’s end will be at a place that You have prepared for us. Lord direct our path and lead us to Green Pastures and in You Lord we have Victory knowing that You are the same Yesterday, Today and Forever.  Lord we place all in Your Holy Hands and we thank You for our Visitors and seek Your Divine Blessing on us all. Lord we thank You for the privilege of serving You Lord. In Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, we pray and to You are the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

Friday March 26, 2021 In the twinkling of an eye…

1 Corinthians 15:51-53 New King James Version

51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. 

Who does not love a mystery? Mystery is mentioned 26 times in the Bible…
Romans 11:25

For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.

  Romans 16:25

Benediction

Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began.

Revelation 1:20

The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches.

The Seven Churches…

Revelation 1:11

saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.”

The patience of God… He is tested by us all, yet He never ‘Detested’ us.

Have you ever felt that you are asking the Lord for too many favors, by all the burdens and life’s challenges that you bring to Him? How would you like your neighbor to ring your doorbell at 8 in the morning, to ask, can he borrow your lawnmower, then at 10 AM he returns and asked to borrow your hedge-clippers, then at 2 O’clock he returns and ask to borrow a bag of your mulch and some fertilizer for his garden? This would be a little overbearing especially it was your day-off that you had the pleasure to sleep-in late.

To make it worse just before dinner he came by and asked to borrow a cylinder of propane because his bar-b-que gas ran out. Remember this is your neighbor, and you are to love your neighbors.  What this neighbor is doing it is exactly what we do daily going to the Lord with our list of needs.

Addressing the neighbor’s constant interruption, this could be an annoyance, or we could look at it this way…  Thank the Lord that I am able to loan to the neighbor what he needed. Additionally, it is a great way to show your brotherly love that is an act of a true Christian, and in lending to your neighbors it is a privilege, and you do not need to borrow. It is always better to give than to receive because giving is a privilege.  Receiving is an obligatory position to be in.

The major difference of what we ask of the Lord, it is humanly impossible, as most times, we seek a miracle.  Yes, we can go to the Lord and ask the impossible, because with God all things are possible. And he said ‘Come’ and bring us our burdens.

So, while our neighbor could be an annoyance for asking and excessively encroaching on your quiet time. It is almost a ‘Test’ and in comparison, to what we ask of the Lord multiple times per day, yet Jesus will never detest us. So, do not detest the neighbor.

Action / Coming to our Lord:

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.

Conclusion:  Our Lord is the Architect of the ‘Just-In-Time’ principle, (JIT) Taiichi Ohno was named the Father of JIT at Toyota.  But the real father of it all is our Creator that started it all.  Remember our Lord knows what we have need of even before we ask.

Principle:       Our Lord is always on Time and never behind.

Prayer:           Father we come in Jesus our Redeemer, Lord Jesus our Eternal Sovereign God, as we start this new week Lord, let each day be a day of Grace, and let Your Blessings flow to us and our Visitors as we interact with You. 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 Nation, our leaders and we ask that Your will be done and bring us to You so that You may heal our land.  We pray for good growing conditions to the farms that our nation will have an abundant crop. Lord we pray in Your Holy name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

If you hear…  Hebrews 3:15

while it is said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

So, the focus today of “Making it on your Own’ we can to a certain extent, but our ability is limited and on our own it leads only to a loop without ending. In Christ we are shown the way through Him as He provided the only way to His Kingdom.

Remember Jesus said…” I am NOT of this world” and He also said…

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

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions;[a] if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.[b] 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.

Our Lord said that when we repent of our sins, He will not just mitigate them, He will cancel them, and He will forget them. let us accept our Lord’s Word of ‘Removal’ and we too must also forget and move forward in Joy knowing that we are ‘Forgiven’ and not to re-live the sin as the evil one would like to repeat the Temptation in our memory as ‘his bondage of sin’.  We need to thank our Lord for the infinite statement of HIS Love, His forgiveness and above all His Redemption by His Grace.

 Coming to our Lord:

Hebrews 4: 16 Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need

Conclusion:

Earthly: Man’s wisdom is limited, we cannot make water, we can only treat it, we can catch it from condensation and say we are making water, but we are not, we are still feeble and without the Heavenly Wisdom coming from our Lord Jesus, knowing that He paid it all… we would have no hope, so Heavenly Wisdom is by Faith in Jesus the Christ our Redeemer

Principle:

Jesus our Redeemer sets aside the Judgment of His Father…

By Jesus’ coming as a Man for us, by His Glory and Grace we are Saved…

The Battle is the Lord’s…

The Supremacy of Jesus…

Colossians 1: 9-22 NKJV Preeminence of Christ

For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; 12 giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. 13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood,[c] the forgiveness of sins.

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

Reconciled in Christ

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

21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight

Let us Praise the Lord... as He is Mighty to Save and He reigns supreme and He is our Redeemer who Lives, and on that day we shall all See Him as he is.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Redeemer we come, Lord Jesus our Sovereign Eternal God in One of our Father and His Holy Spirit, Lord we come this day to Praise You and lift You up before all knowing that you Lord sits on the Throne of Righteousness interceding for us to the Father. Lord We seek Your Divine Blessings today and Your Favors upon us all including our Visitors to this Good News Site. Today Lord as we proclaim You as our Supreme God, we place all things in Your Holy Hands Lord... Lord in You we have Victory we come and in Faith we go forward. Lord we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Wednesday March 24, 2021

What are we doing to prepare for that eventful day? No, we cannot enter the date in our calendar, but we know that one day He will return.  Let us prepare others for this magnificent day.

The eventful day described as…
2 Peter 3:10

The Day of the Lord

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

Scientists, explorers, and astronomers are all speculating what happened to Mars. Where did the water go? And why the drastic changes that made the planet hostile to human habitat.  Is there anyone trying to find the entrance to the Garden of Eden?  I guess not, as this was sealed off and hidden by God.

Genesis 3: — 23 therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. 24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.

Go to the Father in Reverence, let it be a Spiritual meeting and not a ritual. Recognizing the Holiness of the Father and through Jesus our Mediator we have communion with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit

We are told to be Holy…

1 Peter 1:15-17 New International Version (NIV)

15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”[a]

17 Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear.

The ‘Be Holy because I am holy” a statement that we can strive to be…

So, do not let the allure of the world be a distraction.

God said…

Be still and know that “I am God”

Psalm 46:10 In Context 

Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

 2 Timothy 1:9

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

The calling of Matthew…
 Matthew 9: 9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.

Commentary:

Jesus called Matthew and immediately Matthew left his post at the Tax collection office and went with Jesus. He later had a Feast prepared for Jesus and invited his friend that were many Tax Collectors.  Matthew who wrote the first Gospel of the New Testament wrote with less details of the event, but his writing was centered around Jesus and not of the events taking place around Jesus. He made Jesus the focal point and expressed his loyalty to Jesus.

The book of Matthew is the commencement of the New Testament, and it is one of the Synoptic Gospels. While we read that Jesus did call Matthew and this is verse 9, the book of Matthew starts with the Genealogy of Christ and the events of John the Baptist and Christ healing of many including the Leper, the blind and the paralyzed… You may ask how the events written by Matthew, were not in chronological order and him leaving his Tax collection booth.

Our Lord Jesus consistently chose the right person for His purposes.  Jesus chose Matthew because of His knowledge of record keeping as a tax-collector, as we see the compilation of the Genealogy published at the beginning of Matthew.  Just as how Jesus chose Saul to be His vessel, why? Maybe because Saul later known as Paul was a diligent individual and when engaged Paul spent his time with deep dedication.  Saul/Paul was not a ‘wishy-washy individual, when he was a persecutor of Christians, he was a dedicated person, when Jesus called him, he became a dedicated Christian.

Our infallible Lord did have Judas as one of His disciples, you may ask how this could be a good choice, Judas was there to fulfil a mission of betraying Christ. Why? Jesus came to fulfil the Prophecy written 700 years (Isaiah 53) before Jesus came as a man.

Prayer:

Lord we thank You for Your Grace, we thank You for the privilege of serving You and reaching many for Your Glory, Lord we ask Your Favors upon us all and for our Visitors to come and know You and have Your Redemption, as we look to that day when we shall see You as You are. Lord Jesus we pray and thank You; and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Tuesday March 23, 2021

When Christ appears, what will the nations do… will He be accepted, or will they  try and deploy missiles and various defensive actions against this ‘Invader from space’ ?

Isaiah 54:17

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

1 Thessalonian

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Matthew 24:29

The Coming of the Son of Man

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

Matthew 24:30

Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

1 Samuel 17:47

Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.”

The key words are... ’With Power and great glory’  but, the major Keywords are ‘Shout and shaken’

Just like when the wall of Jericho fell by a ‘Shout’ what Jesus outlined in Matthew

Joshua 6 New King James Version

The Destruction of Jericho

6 Now Jericho was securely shut up because of the children of Israel; none went out, and none came in. And the Lord said to Joshua: “See! I have given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty men of valor. You shall march around the city, all you men of war; you shall go all around the city once. This you shall do six days. And seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark. But the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets. It shall come to pass, when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, that all the people shall shout with a great shout; then the wall of the city will fall down flat. And the people shall go up every man straight before him.”

Having been in an earthquake, it is like standing on a platform floating on water. The ground almost feels liquefied, there is a sensation of having no control…  So, earth will be shaken, and; conversely, God’s Kingdom will never be shaken…

Hebrews 12:28

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.

Let us be aware of these Godly Promises, we say ‘Promises’ because What is said by the Lord will be reality…
Revelation 2:16

Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

Matthew 24:37

But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

Prayer: Lord we thank You for Your Gift of Grace and through You Jesus, our Lord Jesus Paid-It-All, as we look to that day of receiving a kingdom which can never be shaken, a place of Reverence, Sanctified and Holy in Your Divine Presence. Together with our Visitors, we give You our Praises and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

Monday March 22, 2021

Will we ever have peace and harmony among nations? Can Democracy coexist with Communism? Is there a need for a monarchy?

A sovereign nation is defined as one that governed itself and is in control of territories with a unified representation as a nation. Countries are almost at the brink of falling apart because of mistrust among its citizens and the leaders. Leadership is by empowerment from the people. When a government is self-empowered ignoring the will of its citizens, then this is a dictatorship. When there is deception, fraudulent votes resulting in a stolen election this is a defacto-coup. Why? It is an unlawful majority that ignored the legal voting franchise of the individual citizens.

The Prophecy of Jesus is being fulfilled as the …

2 Timothy 3

Perilous Times and Perilous Men

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good.

James 5:3

Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days.

knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts.

Good News -His Faithfulness:

God in His infinite wisdom prepared us all for that day that is known as “the day of the Lord” … Just as how God prepared Moses to preserve the records of the events… The most epic-events ever would have been the mountain being smoldering when God spoke to Moses, and the most frightening event would have been the Three-Hours of darkness that came over earth at the time of His Crucifixion. 

The ‘Darkness’ deployed upon the Egyptian is a forerunner of the depth of darkness that man will experience when they are separated from God forever. Darkness so thick that nothing is visible…

As today as we are in ‘Training’ just like the 40 year’s journey of the Israelite to Canaan, we are sojourning through this earth which we can have His Grace and His Divine Providence till that day when Jesus will be there to say… Welcome home.  So, let us Love Him and by His Grace He will transform us that we are ‘Spiritually’ connected to Him and not ritually coming to Him.  Come as you are, He seeks nothing from you, He wants to Bless you with an abundant life and give you His Peace.

Conclusion: Yes, God loves you and he wants to hear from you. Just speak and he will hear…

Praise our Lord that we have the Gospels, Moses nor the 11 Disciples did not yet have the Good News of Jesus Crucifixion and Resurrection while they were with Him.  But they all saw the Omniscient of our Lord as Jesus spent Forty days with them before He ascended to Heaven.

Prayer: Father in Heaven in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come… Lord Jesus as we start this new week, we seek Your Divine grace upon us all, Lord bless our Visitors as we go in Faith knowing that You Lord is Omniscient, and all our needs are provided for by Your providence. Lord we thank You and we give You first-place in all knowing that You Lord Jesus is the Author and Finisher of our faith as we acknowledge You before all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Let us celebrate the Victory in Christ… He said we are not to worry, Trust and believe, thank Him; believing what we have asked in His Name has been granted. So, let us Praise him and Give Him the Glory…

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday March 21, 2021

Let us celebrate the Victory in Christ… He said we are not to worry, Trust and believe, thank Him; believing what we have asked in His Name has been granted. So, let us Praise him and Give Him the Glory.

Remember, God knows our needs even before we ask, But He did say Ask… When the blind man came to Jesus, Jesus knew what he needed, but Jesus said, what would you like me to do?

Luke 18: A Blind Man Receives His Sight

35 Then it happened, as He was coming near Jericho, that a certain blind man sat by the road begging. 36 And hearing a multitude passing by, he asked what it meant. 37 So they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by. 38 And he cried out, saying, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

39 Then those who went before warned him that he should be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

40 So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be brought to Him. And when he had come near, He asked him, 41 saying, “What do you want Me to do for you?”

He said, “Lord, that I may receive my sight.”

42 Then Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has made you well.” 43 And immediately he received his sight, and followed Him, glorifying God. And all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God.

Mark 11: 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

His Promise:

The key factor is to live by his precepts of Matthew 6:33
live reverently and not ritually to please our lord

Because we are created in His likeness so we will never Die
Place value on the treasures in heaven

To place Him first
My job is to present Christ and lift Him up before all
What matters to God

We serve others in our vocation that our Lord gave us
Our life's experience are lessons to be used to lead Others to Christ.
Living. By the precepts of Matthew 6:33

His Faithfulness:

God gave us his assignments but we were given specific work so that we would come to him for His grace and Blessings
He could have given us fruit without having to plant it so why did He needs us to plough, plant and cultivate, He gave us these functions so that we would seek his guidance

Our work regardless of what we do, does it help others?
Personally I am privileged to be a vessel for my Lord, and we all must seek to be an ambassador for HIM. I need my Lord's blessings to be focused to be His vessel for His Glory.

The Good ole days are gone… Church worship has changed. It is no longer necessary to bring your Bible, I still do, as I bring my own weapons to the gun range. Your Bible is your weapon, just like how you are familiar with your own pistol or rifle, so is your Bible. The highlighted texts and notations are the road map in reading and comprehension.

Today the scripture text for the sermon must be accessed from your phone. I find this to be a distraction from the Word, and totally unnecessary. But there is a hidden agenda in asking the congregation to log in… it is to keep track of the attendees in church.

Do this…  Turn this Sunday into ‘SONday’ because the Son of God rules by compassion, let us adore Him in Praise…

The Bible is all about the Son of God… Jesus.  It is in Awe that we can freely gather and in the Holy Name of Jesus make this Sunday a day to worship the Son of the Father.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Jeremiah 29:11-13: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.’”

Psalm 91: “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust….’

Psalm 27:13-14: “I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.”

Prayer:  “ASK” … Heavenly Father we come in Jesus our Redeemer and our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity.   Lord Jesus today we Ask for Your divine guidance. We  Seek Your Holy Spirit and Knowing that You are Faithful, and all our needs are met by Your Graciousness. Lord we only ask of You and just as Elisha said…”As surely as the Lord lives whom I serve, I will not accept a thing”  Lord we say the same as we serve You our Living God, and we look to You alone our Lord and Savior. We pray in Jesus precious name, and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Saturday March 20, 2021

Divide and conquer… is this the modus operandi of most politicians? Yes, this is intentional so they can appear as the one that brought solution to the chaos created by them.

What is the whole world worth? A whole lot of problem, or a whole lot of good? 

One thing for sure it not worth gaining and losing your soul. 

Matthew 16:26 

For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 

There is the bragging slogan used… 

“He who dies with the most toys wins”. 

And on a newer, post-modern version: 

He who dies with the most toys wins, but he is still dead! 

As said, Yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come, Today is the best time you have, because when you awaken tomorrow it will be another new today.  

“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.” 

― Mother Theresa  

Can you change the course of your future, yes…? It is only possible by the grace of God. 

As mere humans we may not be able to change the future, but what we do in the name of the Lord, our future can be secure. 

What more do anyone need? Security that is all encompassing, today and tomorrow, with all our needs met, and above all a secure place in the Lord’s Kingdom. Yes, Jesus said this… 

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. In Context  

There is so much we do not know, this is why… God is God, and we are mere mortals, but, believing that through the Grace of the Lord by the Blood of Jesus who came to redeem us, we can believe His word of a ‘more’ abundant live. Abundant means to be already sufficient and above our needs, not just getting by, and when Jesus said a ‘more’ abundant, this is well over the top. 

His Promise / His Faithfulness: 

An everlasting Gift of HIS GRACE:” Ephesians 2:8 

Verse 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— Verse 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 

So, we are asking each of our readers to be prepared, and listen to the word of Jesus who said…  

2 Corinthians 6:2 For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. In Context | Full Chapter  

Coming to Jesus go to our Green pasture page and come to Christ today. 

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come… Lord Jesus we come knowing that unless You build it, it shall not last, Lord, we come knowing that each of us are Temple for You Lord Jesus, and because You Lord Jesus removed the curtain wall and now Lord Jesus You are our High-Priest that we can come boldly knowing we are in the presence of our Living Savior.  Lord Jesus be with our Visitors and grant us all Your favors as we go in Faith knowing that You will never leave us not forsake us. Thank You Lord, and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Organic food, bottled water, non-GMO, low fat, no trans fat, etc… why do we need these? Because humans have mismanaged what God gave us. So, guarding what we eat was not enough restraints, now we need a Mask…what is next? How about radiation, EMP, and the 5G frequency?

The coming launch of 5G will change many things. To implement this there will be Base stations and Antennas everywhere, they will be concealed in park benches, bus stops, and you may be sitting on one where Radio frequency is beamed from.

They claim that the level of radiation is well below harmful levels,  but the CDC, the Cancer institutes, etc.,  their study are  all based on the old technology. So, the lack of new data is yet to be published.

Let us hope that there will be no Oops! We made a mistake of rating  5G Radio Frequency and it is worse than we said.

Just Imagine we can speak with God without a cell phone, and 7 billion can do this at the same. Why? Because He is God, and we are not.

The digital world if taken too far will make us all a coded individual and let us hope that the mark of the beast is not the method of identification in the future.

Joseph & Mary registered for the census…

Luke 2 New King James Version

Christ Born of Mary

2 And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.

Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. (end of text)

It appears that Jesus was not registered as the text said, the day ended and thereafter Christ was born…

Today, as we look at the disappointment of ‘No room at the Inn’ it was God’s great plan that His Son would enter as an ordinary citizen and not as a King.  We today acknowledge that Christ the King was born in a lowly stable, laid in a manger. He never wanted to make Himself King, yet in His walk on earth he never expounded His power, but His mother, Mary knew that he could have made the water into wine, and it was good wine indeed.

It was 1,988 years ago that Jesus looked down from the cross and said…”Father forgive them for they know not what they do”…

Do not worry,  we all have daily challenges, wearing a mask, waiting in line, Jesus Himself faced challenges, Herod tried to kill Him, He agonized over the money changers in the Temple courtyard, He bore our sins. Died on the cross in our place. Yet we celebrate Victory because of His Divine Redemption. Today we know He Jesus our Redeemer Lives… and sitting at the righthand of the Father.

Prayer: Lord Jesus as we celebrate Victory in You, we thank You for Your Divine Grace and we give You the Glory.  Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Divine providence as we go in Faith. Father we thank You for sending Jesus as He is God among us. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forever… Amen.

Why sometimes reading the Bible one, twice or more times and getting a deeper meaning? Because God’s message is Spirit filled.

The Word of God is presented in many forms… The use of Metaphor (An abstract depiction) Prophecy, Parables and as David wrote… A Psalm of David.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake

The use of ‘Shepherd’ Green-‘Pastures’ and Still-‘Waters’  these are all depictive themes of David’s Prayer of Tranquility, Righteousness and Safety.

The most astounding statements about David, is…  Acts 13:22 The Lord said: And when He had removed him, He raised up for them David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.’

So, reading and getting deeper meanings, is the revelation by the Holy Spirit that grants us clarity…

Philippians 1:9

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

It is by knowledge through God’s word that we gain discernment.

One thing we need to remember, without ‘Faith’ we cannot please God…
Hebrews 11:6

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Hebrews 10:22-24 New King James Version

22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works,

Praise the Lord…

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus thank You for hearing our prayers, and as said we affirm that whatever we have asked in your will be granted. Lord bless our Visitors and we thank You Lord for Your Faithfulness. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Are we using the ‘Free Will’ God gave us wisely? Do not expend the bullet on useless targets. Your time is valuable.

Free Will sometimes cannot be exercised… for example, having a License to drive is considered a ‘Privilege’ and one is not guaranteed the right to drive, if the ‘Free will’ is misused.

So, we do have the free will to drive down a major city street at 100 MPH, but the consequence will have serious penalties, like losing the privilege of driving.

In life God give us ‘All’ the privileges, He gave us dominion over everything; but He did us the Rules.

Today we have a Reward system for what you spend, and merchants, airlines offer rewards points as incentives.

Jesus is the giver of the highest incentive… Believe in Him and have an everlasting life. For many, life is a challenge, and to be just an extension of what they currently face, it is an outlook of more of the same. But the Bible said…

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Isaiah 65:  Thus, Said the Lord…

The Glorious New Creation

17 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth.

And the former shall not be remembered or [f]come to mind.

18 But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create;

For behold, I create Jerusalem as a rejoicing,

And her people a joy.

19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem,

And joy in My people.

The voice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her,

Nor the voice of crying.

20 “No more shall an infant from there live but a few days,

Nor an old man who has not fulfilled his days;

For the child shall die one hundred years old,

But the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed.

21 They shall build houses and inhabit them;

They shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

22 They shall not build and another inhabit;

They shall not plant and another eat;

For as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of My people,

And My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

23 They shall not labor in vain,

Nor bring forth children for trouble;

For they shall be the descendants of the blessed of the Lord,

And their offspring with them.

24 “It shall come to pass

That before they call, I will answer;

And while they are still speaking, I will hear.

25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,

The lion shall eat straw like the ox,

And dust shall be the serpent’s food.

They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,”

Says the Lord.

Philippians 4: 6 (The Amplified New Testament)

Verse 6: Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything by prayer and petition (a defined request) with thanksgiving continue to make your wants known to God.

Notice the key words are:

  • Do not fret
  • Every circumstance
  • By Prayer & Petition
  • With Thanksgiving
  • Continue your request to God

Give thanks to our Faithful Lord and Savior as He provides all our needs… as stated in: 

Philippians 4:19 New International Version (NIV)

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

Prayer:

 Father through the Redemption by our Lord Jesus, we are blessed and privileged to be in Your Holy Presence through Jesus, as we acknowledge that no one comes to You unless in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  Lord bless our Visitors and guide our pathway and lead us to Green Pastures and the Water of Life.  Lord You are the Living Water that we shall never thirst as we come to You and Pray these in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to you is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Listening to the news is like watching a Wrestling match, is it real or fake?

As a kid, watching wrestling was a good pastime.  In the pro-wrestling matches, there would be a good guy and a bad guy set up. Now revealed that matches were staged and faked.

A little knowledge can be dangerous… Why? Spreading half-baked information and telling it like it is real, this is a dangerous action. It can be misleading, especially in health, finance, politics, and spiritual matters. So, the ‘Fake’ News on the media needs to be sifted out.

Not to be aligned with any conspiracy theory, one must wonder who is behind it all. Our best guess… the devil the main culprit of conspiracy, the liar of all times, and the  biggest deceiver, corruptor and most evil.

A once popular slogan… ‘the Devil made me do it’… Factually, the devil cannot make you do anything. Because when you say NO! he has no power unless you fall for his diabolical scheme. His name is derived from the Greek Diabolus.

So, do not let your guard down…

Ephesians 6:12

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.

The Supremacy of Christ is above all…

Colossians 1:16

For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.

Colossians 1:20 In Context 

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

Colossians 2:11 In Context 

Not Legalism but Christ ] In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,

So, who we are? just like Adam…

Nothing surprised the Father, and Jesus was not surprised of Adam’s sin, that is carried forward to us. It is by the Divine Grace that we are Redeemed.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus as you said You are in our midst as we gather in Your Holy Presence.

Lord we thank You for Your Divine Grace and as we go in faith, you have said we will never be ashamed in trusting You.

Lord thank You for Your love and care as You are Preeminent in our lives. Lord bless our visitors and grant your Providence on us all. We pray in Your precious and matchless name Lord Jesus… Amen

Worrying cannot help a situation… Hope in Christ is the answers. Read Matthew 6:33-34

A humorous story… An atheist was walking through the woods. "What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!" he said to himself.

As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.

He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing in on him.

He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer.

He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him.

At that instant, the Atheist cried out, "Oh my God!"

Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent.

As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky.

"You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident."

"Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"

The atheist looked directly into the light, "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a Christian?"

"Very well," said the voice.

The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed.

And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head and spoke:

"Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen."

As we strive to be more productive, let us remember the message from:

Philippians 4:11 Paul’s message to the Philippians.…

I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. In Context

 Philippians 4:12

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. In Context 

My Wish List…The Source(s) And why should I receive my desires. Because the Lord is my Source, and He is Faithful.

We consume three meals, or the equivalent to a good intake of a balanced diet. But over-eating is dangerous to our health. And as it is said, ‘everything in moderation’ Too much of one thing can be good for nothing… meaning we cancel the benefits by overindulging.  Therefore, our Needs are what the Lord will provide, our Wants may be too lofty, and getting it can be harmful.

We wrote about the couple that were faith churchgoers, the husband got a high-paying job and they quit church, the pastor went to see them before the Sunday service, only to meet them getting ready to leave the house. Pastor said, we miss you at church, the answer was, sorry, we are late for our golf game,

It is like the priest, that called in sick that he could not conduct the Sunday mass, but he drove out to the country club, on his first drive he made a long-distance Hole-in-One, unfortunately, he could not tell anyone about his amazing experience.

Going to the  

Father in Heaven, in Jesus we come… You have said whatever we ask in Your Name, we should believe that we have received it. Lord we thank You for our Needs, and Lord let us define our ‘Wants’ as they should be to have a zeal to serve You. Lord we gather here in Your Holy Presence with our Visitors as we thank You for Your Divine Providence upon us all. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus… Amen

Sunday March 14,2021

Remember that all ill-begotten gains will soon be lost. One thing you can gain, and it is greater than anything you can ever gain… the Love of Christ, and it can never be lost.

There are a few names that will forever be associated with s ‘Scam’ such as Ponzi, and Madoff.  Ponzi died a pauper, and Madoff is serving almost a life sentence. These were large-scale scams.  But there are many small scams that are committed daily. The Bible revealed the scam of…

Acts 5

Lying to the Holy Spirit

But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession. And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself? ...

Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things. And the young men arose and wrapped him up, carried him out, and buried him.

Now it was about three hours later when his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. And Peter answered her, “Tell me whether you sold the land for so much?”

She said, “Yes, for so much.”

Then Peter said to her, “How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out.” 10 Then immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. And the young men came in and found her dead, and carrying her out, buried her by her husband. 11 So great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things.

  1. Romans 8:35

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

  1. Romans 8:39

nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

          Share the joy by rejoicing, it will always outlast happiness. Joy is Rejoicing in the Lord.

                   Spiritual growth is achieved in fellowship and daily walking with the Lord.

Growing bean sprouts is done by placing beans under cover where they remain in total darkness,

They sprout rapidly it cannot grow to maturity. Placing the same beans into the ground, they will grow into a tree and produce many more pods of beans.

So, there is no Short cut to spiritual maturity, unless you had the Damascus road experience of Saul when he was struck down. In a flash Saul was blinded and underwent a spiritual change. Paul’s Transformation was Life-changing; and any one can have the same when the Lord chooses that Person.

So, do not be a ‘Bean sprout’ be a tree bearing fruits, bloom and reflect the beauty of the Good News of hope in Christ

Do not be in the dark like the sprout, be in the Light as darkness is the absence of light. Just as evil is the absence of God.

Jesus is the Light of the World and His Kingdom - Forever

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

For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth.

Prayer:

Saturday  March 13,2021

When God is for you, who can go against you? They may try, but they will never succeed…

Jesus had an encounter with the devil himself…

Matthew 4:4 New King James Version

Satan Tempts Jesus

4 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”

But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”

Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written:

‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and,

‘In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’ ”

Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not [a]tempt the Lord your God.’ ”

Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You fall down and worship me.”

10 Then Jesus said to him, [b]“Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’ ”

11 Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.

His Promise:

We are made more than conquerors and justified by God’s Grace through Jesus our Redeemer.

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.

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? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died —more than that, who was raised to life —is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?

Action / Coming to our Lord:

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.

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, as we gather Lord, let each day be a day of Grace, and let Your Blessings flow to us and to each other’s 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 Nation and we ask that Your will be done and bring us to You so that You may heal our land, Lord bless our Visitors as we pray in Your Holy name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

Friday March 12,2021

God’s Grace is sufficient, and He will never fail you nor will He ever leave you.

Could you trade your ‘Faith’ for God’s ‘Grace’?

Both are essential, your Faith in Jesus, which is your utmost, so giving your Utmost for His Highest…

Our utmost for His Highest is not an even trade, as His Highest we could Never achieve on our own.

When Christ died, He was substituting Himself for us, as He paid the ransom of our sins.

Without His Highest we have no hope. For many, we may not feel the that He had to do this for us. But our righteousness is like a filthy rag.

Isaiah 64:6

But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

But he Redeemed us and made us Righteous by His Grace.

Romans 4:4

Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt.

Romans 4:16

Therefore, it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all

Romans 5:20

Moreover, the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,

Romans 5:21

so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We cannot outgive the Lord… Even before you were born, God provided a way that his Grace would sustain you through Faith in Jesus our Lord and Savior.

Conclusion, we cannot trade anything we have for His Highest, because we can never earn, purchase, or inherit His Highest… It is solely a Priceless  Gift, received by Faith in Jesus.

Jesus said… Matthew 10: 30, 32, 33   And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 32 “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.

Stop to think… Looking up and Thanking our Father, that He chose us and you because He has a mission for us all… and before the Creation of the World He Chose Jesus to Redeem us and to be made Holy and Blameless in His Sight… How Gracious is our God, Jesus our Messiah, Thank You Father in Jesus Name… Amen.

His Promise:

We are safe in Christ; Life circumstances cannot separate you from His Love. Romans 8:38-39. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Prayer: Lord Jesus we thank You today for Your Grace and Your Divine Redemption as the Highest Gift from the Father. Lord we delight ourselves in You and we bring our Visitors to You and seek Your blessings and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

The terminology of ‘Wrapped in Cotton’ what does it mean? It means you are untouchable, and why?

Meaning: protect somebody too much without allowing them to be independent enough. Example: The mother wrapped the child up in cotton wool as if it would protect him from all the dangers of the world.

As seen in the Garden of Eden, God did not wrap Adam and Eve in ‘Cotton’ they were given freedom to explore, to roam in the most beautiful place ever.  Why? God created us with ‘Free-will’ and in so doing we are given a set of rules, these being the Ten Commandments. Just as the Forbidden fruit was off limits for Adam… One may ask… why did God place that tree and made it off-limits?  It is for us to know the difference of what is right and the difference of good versus evil.

We may also say that keeping all Ten of the Commandments are virtually impossible. This is why God Sent His Only Son… Jesus.

Commentary:

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

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

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

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

  1. Factually our Lord is not asking for your love because of fear of Him. He said, “If we love Him keep His commandments” Just like when He came, He came as a Man and not as a King or as God Incarnate, the angel did make known… Matthew 1: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which translated means, “God with us.”
  2.  1 John 3:22
    and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. 1 John 3:21-23 (in Context)
  3. 1 John 5:3
    For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome.

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

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

Text:

Hebrews 13:5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

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

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

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

As an Ambassador for Christ you have special privileges, and special gift and more… enroll today…

To be appointed as an Ambassador for your country is a high honor. You will enjoy the privileges including diplomatic immunity from paying parking tickets, driving around with Diplomatic license plate, and enjoying state functions. But there is more than the assignment and having a good time.

The political ramifications at times can be  challenging, as nation rises against nation. Countries are engaged in espionage and intelligence gathering, in some instances major decisions have to be made, such as granting asylum, providing shelter for a persecuted citizen.

When we are called to serve, as a disciple of the Lord, you are an Ambassador of the most high. We may not have the grand title of being addressed as ‘Ambassador’, but our rank is far higher than being a member of the diplomatic Corp of any nation. The benefits are not like the appointed ambassador that is short term, your privilege is forever, and Whom you represent is far greater than any sovereign country.

Commentary:

Reading the Bible or attending Church or praying on your own cannot save you… this bold statement is rather contrary to many preacher’s definition of being saved.  I was reading this morning about instructions from a pastor to one of his congregation... “Go home and Pray’. Suppose you are an ambassador of a country, It is your responsibility being an ambassador or if you are an officer at the Embassy, if someone comes and asks ”how can I seek political asylum as I am being pursued by my government for speaking about being a Christian”, would we say go home and wait? Wait for what? To be arrested? Or a miracle?  The same applies if someone comes and said, I am facing a doubt in my mind of how to be sure I have been saved? The answer is not one of Reading the Bible or attending Church or praying, Praying may save you if you were praying to the Lord Jesus and in fact called upon His name.

So, the instructions go home and Pray may not help you in finding the Truth. The Truth defined as the Good News of His Salvation.  It is the duty of the Pastor to counsel and provide guidance.  Therefore, we are doing what Paul was saying to the Philippians, described below…

Philippians 1:12-18 (NIV)

Paul’s Chains Advance the Gospel

12 Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has served to advance the gospel. 13 As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. 14 And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.

15 It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill.16 The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel.17 The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. 18 But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.

Yes, and I will continue to rejoice,

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Christ Jesus we come knowing that You our Lord & Savior 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. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Yes… you are of a chosen generation…of a Royal Priesthood, a Child of the Highest. Why as a child?

God is infallible and all powerful, yet He will listen and reason with us as he did with Job and Moses and reasoned with them.

Text:  2 Corinthians 8:9 (NIV)

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

Commentary: We are sorry to disappoint many as there some careers and trades that will not be needed in Heaven.  Lawyers, Doctors, Undertakers, and many others, why? There will be no death, no pain, and no strife. Just think, there will be no pharmaceutical companies, no greed, no pills, and no dependency on anyone. What a glorious state it will be.

Romans 8: 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

  Heaven is Real… God is Real – Eden Restored, a Place of splendor filled with the presence of our Lord, a place of Joy…

You should not worry; the Bible stated that if we know Christ, we are safely in God's hands forever when we die, and  nothing "in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 8:39).

The entire Bible is about Jesus, The Christ… Jesus the Anointed Holy Son, our Redeemer; the Bible written between the years 1,446 and 1,406 BC, foretells of the coming of the Messiah, and His return. We will  clarify that Moses is known to be the Author of Genesis, but Moses was not yet born when God created the Heavens and the Earth, so how did Moses write Genesis?  Moses was educated in the Egyptian society, Moses’ writing of Genesis was based on what he gathered through sources of the beginning; Jesus Himself walked in the Garden of Eden and speaking of His Creation, almost on a play-by-play narrative. Through the linage of Adam to the time of Moses, the events of the creation were preserved. So, we accept the fact that Moses is the author by compilation and recording of the events.

His Promise: Romans 5:10 (NIV)

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!

Hebrews 12: 23-29 (NIV)

23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the Judge of all, to the spirits of the righteous made perfect, 24 to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel.

25 See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” 27 The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.

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

This is Jesus’ Sacrifice for our Sins, as he, willing went to the Cross so that by his Blood of Atonement we are redeemed.

1 Timothy 1:15
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst.

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

There is a saying if all it took was money anyone can do it… money cannot buy God’s Grace. So, reliance on what money can do, it has its limitation. But having God’s Grace is greater than all the wealth than money represents.

  1. Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads and empty hearts can do that. --Norman Vincent Peale
  2. It is good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it is good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure that you have not lost the things that money cannot buy. --George Lorimer.

So, what is there that money cannot buy? Today, one can buy a Kidney, lung, Heart or even a face transplant, but beyond this the money cannot buy a life without end.  Therefore, money has its limitation. But the ‘Free’ Gift of Life-Everlasting is through Christ; and it takes no money as it cannot be bought, it cannot be leased, it cannot be supplied by the greatest Medical surgeon. It is Divinely gifted by God’s Grace through the Redeeming Blood of Christ.

According to the media, the richest man on planet earth, is he a happy person? Our recommendation to him is to stop and to make sure that he has not lost the thing that money cannot buy, and if he does not have this, then he is of all person the poorest on earth.

Today we do not have to envy the wealthy, the greedy politicians, the exploiters of the human’s race, because they are all ‘Poor’ and conversely, all believers are rich beyond comprehension because through Jesus, as said…

 Ephesians 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 2 Corinthians 8:9

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

Jesus said…
Hebrews 13:5

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

To be ‘Forsaken’ is to be totally abandoned. And because of Jesus’s covenant we are able to thank Him and give Him our Praises…

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus today as You have empowered us all, we thank You and give You First-Place in all… Lord bless our Visitors and grant us Your Peace as we affirm You as the Author and Finisher of our Faith. To You Lord Jesus is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

D.L. Moody: The Great Fire and the Last Altar Call

The Great Fire of Chicago began about 9 pm Sunday, October 8, until early Tuesday, October 10, 1871.  This rapidly spreading fire killed approximately 300 individuals, destroyed roughly 3.3 square miles Chicago, and left over 100,000 residents homeless.  This devastating fire would greatly impact the life of American evangelist D.L. Moody.

It is believed that the Great Chicago fire spread so quickly because wood was the main building material used in Chicago. This included the building frames, walls, shingles, and even the sidewalks.  To make matters worse, roofs that were not topped with wooden shingles were made of flammable tar.  Once the fire started, there were only 185 firefighters with 17 horse-drawn steam engines available to protect the entire city.  The firemen themselves were already worn out from fighting fires earlier in the week and were initially sent to the wrong location.

Moody’s church was destroyed, as was his family’s home and the homes of many of his congregation.  Moody himself said that he was able to save nothing but his reputation and his Bible.  But there was a more disturbing aspect to the Great Chicago Fire that involved Moody, however. 
D. L. Moody held his usual service the Sunday evening the fire broke out.  At the close of the service, he asked his congregation to evaluate their relationship to Christ and to return the following week to make a decision.  This, he thought, would give them time to really think things over and result in a lasting decision.  He wanted to make sure that they were sure about accepting Jesus Christ, not wanting to pressure them into making a decision they would not stick with.  Sounds reasonable, doesn't it?

While Ira Sankey was singing the closing hymn, it was drowned out by the sound of fire trucks and church bells.  To his dying day, Moody regretted delaying their decision to the following Sunday. 

It would be a Sunday that many in that meeting hall would not live to see.   Within a matter of hours, many of those who sat under Moody’s words were dead.  There is no way of knowing how many that night could have gotten their hearts made right with God had an altar been given, and there is no way of knowing how that sat under Moody's voice that night many died in the fire and were not ready to meet God.

Moody would never be the same after that incident.  He became very ill because of the guilt he carried.  As a dedicated soul winner, D.L. Moody took such missed opportunities very, very seriously.

“I have never since dared,” Moody later said, “to give an audience a week to think of their salvation  I would rather have that right hand cut off than to give an audience a week now to decide what to do with Jesus."​… D.L. Moody.

Today, there are one or more denominations that do not do the ‘Alter Call.”

Any more so, if they do not do an invitation to come to Christ, then they should have the Lord’s Supper, and this is the testimony of Christ and the ideal state of mind of a new believer to join in the Body of Christ.

Not only that they do not do the invitation ‘Alter-Call” the Lord’s Supper in done on a Monthly basis, Our Lord said…” Do this in Remembrance of Me”.  Therefore, the Lord’s Supper may be done as often as possible.

Church memberships are dropping…  On average, 69% of U.S. adults were members of a church in 1998-2000, compared with 52% in 2016-2018. The decline in church membership mostly reflects the fact that fewer Americans than in the past now have any religious affiliation.

To grow the body of Christ, we must show appreciation to all visitors, and make it known that there is a place for each

To have a renewed zeal to come to worship.

The awakening should be from the shepherd of the flock. A relationship is critical in all aspects of what we do.

Church and religion will not save us… But the Church is holy place for the Bride of Christ, the Body of Christ.

Let us Praise our Lord, from wherever you are… as COVID-19 has displaced church goers. Let us pray that the return to the ‘Call to Worship’ will be bigger and better than ever.

Father in heaven we thank You through Jesus our Lord and Savior. Lord Jesus we come as we are, and we seek Your Divine blessing. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Divine Providence. To You Lord is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

Celebrate the Victory we have, you may say. where is it?... remember we are made more than conquerors and He made us “Joint-Heirs” in Jesus…

Victory in Christ

Galatians 5

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

Christ our Redeemer has set us free!

Galatians 5

New International Version (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.

Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law. You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. 

The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.

Life by the Spirit

13 You, my brothers, and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 15 If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.

16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking, and envying each other.  † End of Text

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.

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? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died —more than that, who was raised to life —is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?

Action / Coming to our Lord:

Prayer:           Father we come in Jesus our Redeemer, Lord Jesus our Eternal Sovereign God, as we start this new week Lord, let each day be a day of Grace, and let Your Blessings flow to us and to each other’s 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 Nation and we ask that Your will be done and bring us to You so that You may heal our land, Lord we pray in Your Holy name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

Friday March 5th, 2021

Remember we are not a disposable generation, we are of God, our Creator and the author and Finisher of our Faith.

Some say 2020 was a throwaway year as the Covid pandemic destabilized businesses, government, schools amid universities. The lockdown of countries and travel restrictions, the vacant hotels etc, these plus the vacant malls and dying restaurants, all this would be good it the Pandemic itself could be the ‘Throwaway’.

We sincerely hope the source of this pandemic will be the one thrown out to the trash heap. The statistics on cases, deaths on a worldwide level, how real are these numbers? In some cases, they are inflated to receive government funding and some cases they are deflated to coverup the wrongs and mismanagement of governments.

Yet, we are not a throwaway generation, in fact we are protected by God’s covenant and  his assurance of…

Angels encamp… Psalm 34:7.

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

So, today let us not fear the plague created by devious origin. As what was intended for evil, will turn into goodness for those who loves the Lord.

Here a poignant event that we are repeating…

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

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

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

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

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

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

Revelation 21:27

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

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

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

Prayer:

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

Good faith is not enough… a pilot flying right into the mountainside is doing this because he believes it is the right direction. We all need God’s direction. So, Stop, look, and listen, because He is God. Read Matthew 6:33-33

Religion cannot save any of us… Ritualism cannot save anyone. Only Jesus Christ…

So, it is BY GRACE we are Saved.

Romans 4 New King James Version

Abraham Justified by Faith

What then shall we say that Abraham our father[a] has found according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was [b]accounted to him for righteousness.” Now to him who works, the wages are not counted [c]as grace but as debt.

David Celebrates the Same Truth

But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works:

“Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven,
And whose sins are covered;
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin.”

The Promise Granted Through Faith

13 For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect, 15 because the law brings about wrath; for where there is no law there is no transgression.

16 Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be [d]sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all 17 (as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did; 18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.” 19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. 22 And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness.”

Today, as we gather to affirm our Faith yet, knowing that it is by Grace that we are saved.  Let us not deny Paul’s teaching and by example of explicit Faith of Abraham who was Justified by Faith.

Romans 4:  What then shall we say that Abraham our father[a] has found according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was [b]accounted to him for righteousness.” Now to him who works, the wages are not counted [c]as grace but as debt.

Faith In Jesus Christ…

23 Now it was not written for his sake alone that it was imputed to him, 24 but also for us. It shall be imputed to us who believe in Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, 25 who was delivered up because of our offenses, and was raised because of our justification.

Ephesians 1:6 In Context |  to the praise of the glory of His graceby which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

Ephesians 2:1 By Grace Through Faith

And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,

even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ.

(by grace you have been saved),

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.

Prayer: Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come, Lord Jesus because of Your Righteousness, we are privileged to be in the Holy Presence of our Father, You Lord Jesus and by the Holy Spirit. Thank You Lord for Your Divine Resurrection as You conquered death. As we too are made conquerors by Your Grace. Lord bless our Visitors as we seek Your blessings and Your Providence on us all. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus… Amen.

Righteousness in our daily life could be defined as being honest in our dealings, but in the Heavenly realms, it takes more than honesty. Get full explanation, read more…

Among the richest individuals in the world, his honesty, his philanthropic endeavors, and respect gain among his peers will be nothing, as said the greatest charity without love is still nothing.


1 Corinthians 13

The Greatest Gift

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. ...

The text above said…

  • You can be the most eloquent speaker, but without love that person will be nothing. 
  • You may even have the gift of prophecy, understanding all mysteries, even with faith to move mountains, but have not love, still a nothing…
  • Giving all wealth to the poor and even sacrificing oneself, without love it does nothing.

So big donors expecting to make their lives right with their fellow citizens, without love they have no rewards.  The difference between charity and philanthropy?

Philanthropy is more long-term and strategic and often involves making multiple gifts to help people over a number of years. While charity is focused on providing immediate relief to people and is often driven by emotions, philanthropy is focused on helping people and solving their problems over the long-term.

The founding of Harvard… Harvard University is the oldest college in the entire country — it dates back to 1636. The school was named after a young minister by the name of John Harvard, who, according to the university, left his library and half of his estate to the institution upon his death in 1638.

One hundred fifty years ago, Abraham Lincoln signed a law that transformed agriculture and education, and transformed America along the way. Named after its congressional sponsor, the Morrill Act of 1862 directed the states to create institutions of higher learning for the study of agriculture and mechanics and provided 30,000 acres of public land to each state for the purpose. These land-grant universities include MIT, Cornell, the California state universities, and Texas A&M, among many others. The land-grant college in California is the University of California,

They support farmers, ranchers, and gardeners, and, of course, they face 21st-century challenges, beginning with funding.

Today these institutions have changed their agenda, and many curriculums are far from what the founding fathers endowed.  In fact, Christians entering college must be aware that the teaching is liberal and, in some cases, denying God.

So, we must remind ourselves that while God is a God of Love and Forgiveness, he is also a God of a Consuming –Fire.

Prayer: Heavenly Father we gather in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come… Lord Jesus knowing that You are our Mediator and just as Moses interceded for his people, Lord Jesus You are in the Holy Presence of The Father and it is only by Your Mediation that we are able to come in the Holy Presence of The Father.  Lord we acknowledge that it is only by Grace that we are saved.  Lord Jesus we thank You for our Visitors and we go in Faith knowing that our outreach is not in vain as even one sinner that repents there will be Joy in Heaven.  We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is 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.

The theme of many sermons refers to the Sermon on the Mount… widely known as the “Beatitudes”; we refer to to this the Inaugurated address of Jesus as he outlined how our ‘Attitude’ should be in this life…

  • Example of Attitude truculent or uncooperative behavior; a resentful or antagonistic manner. "I asked the waiter for a clean fork, and all I got was attitude."

Humans are all created equally regardless of race, as Billy Graham said… He had multiple blood transfusions, and blood is blood regardless of Race color or creed.

Attitude… Research shows some attitudes are rooted in genetics, though environment is still key. By TORI DeANGELIS

 A handful of studies show not only that attitudes are partly, though indirectly, heritable, but that attitudes with high heritability influence people's actions more strongly than those with weaker genetic bases. Indeed, highly heritable attitudes, such as political persuasions, may even steer our choices of the social "niches" we carve out for ourselves, such as where and with whom to live, according to one line of psychological research.

Some of what Jesus said… 

Matthew 5: 3-10

3. “Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
For they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall inherit the [a]earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

The reference to the ‘Meek’ inheritance of  earth, Jesus was referring to the New Earth… Because earth as we know it shall be left ‘Bare’… 2 Peter 3:10

The Day of the Lord

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

Give Thanks for a New Heaven and a New Earth…

Revelation 21:1 All Things Made New

Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also, there was no more sea.

The Joy of it all, there will be no more division among the human race, there will be no deceits, grudge, nothing but the Love and Peace of the Lord.

Know this…  He (Jesus) is the solution to the conflicts among us. Be in harmony in Christ.

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

Jesus said in His declaration of the Beatitude He said:

Matthew 5: AMP

12 Be glad and supremely joyful, for your reward in heaven is great (strong and intense), for in this same way people persecuted the prophets who were before you.

13 You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste (its strength, its quality), how can its saltness be restored? It is not good for anything any longer but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men.

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

 15 Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.

Prayer:  Heavenly Father in Jesus we come.  Lord Jesus in awe we are still and know that You are God in One of the Father. Lord we thank You for Your Divine Redemption and the Grace that You have extended to us. Lord thank you for remembering us as without Your Grace we are hopelessly lost, but through Your Blood of Atonement we are cleansed and by Your Resurrection we are Redeemed in Victory over this world. Lord, thank You for our Visitors and we seek Your Blessing  to all. We Praise You and look to You for Your guidance. In Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore... Amen.

Hope and Faith… these two words are not usually found in a business contract. However, a contract sometime refers to in “Good-faith” especially when it comes to a deposit, usually refereed to as ‘good faith money.’

Faith and hope are unseen intangibles, and very elusive in business. But in Christ it is the most tangible because in Him we have God’s covenant of Grace.

Grace is also an intangible, but in the heavenly realms, God’s Grace is His Downpayment of our redemption.

One may say… why do I need to be redeemed? Let us look at the big picture if all of what we have, and our life is all that we will ever have then dying is the end, what is the purpose of our live here? We would be like the battery in the flashlights, it is good when new and after a while it fades giving little or no light, then it is disposed of.

We were not created to be disposed in the trash heap. Being created in the image of God, who is eternal, we too are eternal. So why do we die? Because as Jesus said unless the seed dies it can never be alive.

John 12:24

Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.

So, As Jesus said… Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

Today let us celebrate Victory in Jesus…Applying Faith, Hope and Love by His Grace.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and savior we come… Lord Jesus as You are at the Right-hand of the Father, just as Stephen looked up and saw You Lord and said… Jesus received my Spirit, Lord You gave Him Your Rest.  Lord for may today we ask Your Divine blessings on us, our Visitors, family members, brothers, and sisters and all in one Body of You Lord Jesus as the Author and Finisher of our faith.  Thank You Lord Jesus for Your Divine Redemption by Your Grace. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.
