Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and tomorrow…

James 1:17 New International Version (NIV)

17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

Commentary:                    

Before the beginning of it all, Jesus our Savior was destined to be our Redeemer… John 1:9 New International Version (NIV)

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.

In our busy life of today it is hard for us to think back to the day of Creation… assuming you are in Time Square, Manhattan, NY right now, to transport your thoughts back to day one in would be like leaving the city to go to the country… we see in:

Genesis 1 New International Version (NIV)

The Beginning

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning —the first day. † (End of Text)

Back to the scene at Times Square… it is a bustling rush of traffic, people and flashing neon signs, this compared to the tranquility of the Green Pastures and Still water that we all seek.  It is often said… many leaves the country for the city, work hard just to return to the country and retire.  So often we are in a position that we would trade where we are for another place just because the ‘Grass is Greener on the other side; it is like the dog that went to the pond with his bone and saw a bigger bone in the reflection, not knowing it was just a reflection,  he grabbed for that bone only to lose his bone,  'this is the dog in Aesop's fable.'

‘Home-Schooling’ practice is growing across our nation.
and gained popularity because it enables families to safeguard the values, morals and joy of learning that focus on the child’s abilities to progress at a pace without the distraction of other schoolmates, which in some instances some may be slow learners or sometimes disruptive.  Therefore, kids in home schooling are not susceptible to peer pressure to participate in the ‘greener-Grass syndrome’

We could say that the Disciples of Christ were more or less ‘Home-Schooled’ as we do not read where any of the 12 (or rather the eleven) were taught in any formal place of education or even being a member of a temple or synagogue. Was our Lord leading His disciples away from the masses applying His teaching of not to be unequally yoked?

He is Faithful and He said… Eden will be Restored

Revelation 22:

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

His Faithfulness:

Action / Coming to our Lord:

John 1:18  New International Version (NIV)

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

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Redeemer and our Sovereign Eternal God we come into Your Holy presence. Lord Jesus today we stand at the Cross knowing that You came and Paid-It-All, and that You are on the Throne of Righteousness. Lord all things point to the day that will be known as ‘The Day of The Lord’… By Your Grace Lord we can say come and come quickly as the prophecy of Your teaching are being fulfilled. Lord bless  our Visitors and us all as we seek Your Divine leadership in our lives, and Your Holy Spirit to be in us and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forever… Amen.

Abundant Grace…

This beloved hymn sung in all the churches came from a humble beginning.

This was written by John Newton a slave trader.

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

Text: 

1 Peter 1

New American Standard Bible

A Living Hope and a Sure Salvation

1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who reside as strangers, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, who are chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, [a]to obey Jesus Christ and be sprinkled with His blood: May grace and peace be multiplied to you.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable, undefiled, and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 

In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the [c]proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which perishes though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ; and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and [d]full of glory, obtaining as the outcome of your faith, the salvation of [e]your souls.

10 As to this salvation, the prophets who prophesied of the grace that would come to you made careful searches and inquiries, 11 seeking to know what person or time the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating as He predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories [g]to follow. 12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves, but you, in these things which now have been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things into which angels long to look.

13 Therefore, prepare your minds for action, keep sober in spirit, set your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, 15 but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; 16 because it is written: “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

17 If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth18 knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, 

19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ. 20 For He was foreknown before the foundation of the world, but has appeared [p]in these last times for the sake of you 21 who through Him are believers in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

22 Since you have purified your souls in obedience to the truth for a sincere love of the brothers and sisters, fervently love one another from the heart, 23 for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable, but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God. 24 For,

“All flesh is like grass,
And all its glory is like the flower of grass.
The grass withers,
And the flower falls off,
25 But the word of the Lord endures forever.”

And this is the word which was [r]preached to you.

Commentary: The Peace of God is a Divine experience…

Philippians 4:7

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

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

New King James Version (NKJV)

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

Prayer:

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

The Providence of the Lord…

Topic: Yours Faithfully, one of the most used ending of letters, how much of this is really sincere?

Text:  Revelation 22: 20-21 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 with you all. Amen.

Commentary:

Yours Sincerely, Faithfully yours, etc.… are common ending of letters, “AMEN” we use this at the end of prayers, but many may not realize that this is a ‘Divine’ word… it is an assertion, meaning “So be it”. When we say Amen to affirm one’s statement, it is an endorsement and an expression of us being in accord.  Amen is mentioned in the KJV Bible 78 times.

In Revelation 3:14 New King James Version (NKJV) Amen is used as a reference to The Father…

The Lukewarm Church

14 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,

‘These things say the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God:

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Matthew 6: 5-13 The Model Prayer

“And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.

“Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray:

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
13 And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Principle: His Promise / His Faithfulness:  Be confident in Him, that when we ask He will grant us our needs according to His riches and His will as He Jesus our Lord is Faithful.

Word of His Assurance:

Colossians 3:1-4 New International Version (NIV)

Living as Those Made Alive in Christ

3 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

John 10:28 (NIV)

28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.

John 10:29 (NIV)

29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.

Conclusion: Our Faith is made perfect by His Grace. And only in Jesus we have His Assurance that by His Redemption we can look to that day when the challenges of this world be behind us as He said, “I go to prepare a place for you” and His Kingdom is a place that He called ‘Paradise’  a place of Splendor… Joy is from our Lord, real Joy is everlasting, Happiness is temporary. 

Find His Peace Today, come to our Lord.  Go to our Green Pasture Page and come to our Lord. Praise Him for He is faithful, in Jesus we have Victory…

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus as You are on the Throne of Righteousness and no one comes to the Father unless through You Lord, we come in Your Holy Presence knowing that You our Redeemer lives and we can come boldly to You.  Lord bless this day as we go in Faith knowing that Your Grace is sufficient and we are privileged to serve You Lord. Lord we thank You for Your divine providence in our lives as we use all that You have provided for Your Glory. Lord let what is done be for Your Glory and bless our Visitors and grant Your Favors to each one as we give You first place in our lives and commit all to You our Lord. Lord be with us as we pray and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

MONDAY June 14, 2021

The Greatest Story ever told, this was an Epic film with Five Academy Nominations.

Today we want to set the record straight… The Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ was an ‘EVENT’.  A story is a description of imaginary people and events. Narrative: a story or an account of a series of events.

Stories are ‘Alice in Wonderland, the Wizard of Oz and comic books of Spiderman.

The event of the Last Supper, the trial, Crucifixion and Resurrection are Events that took place of Christ.

While Jesus Rose from the dean, this has not been repeated, many spiritual leaders remain buried, because there were mere men.

Jesus came as a man, but he was God among us, as declared His name shall be called Immanuel… Matthew 1:23

“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”

Isaiah known as the ‘Prince’ of Prophets, declared Christ over 700 years before Christ came.

Isaiah 7:14

Therefore, the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.

Know this:

Now… He is the Un-deniable Messiah. So. stop looking for the coming of another Messiah, He Jesus came 2021 Years ago.

Isaiah 53:4-6

New King James Version

Surely He has borne our [a]griefs
And carried our [b]sorrows;
Yet we [c]esteemed Him stricken,
[d]Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded[e] for our transgressions,
He was [f]bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes[g] we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord [h]has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

Have you ever had difficulties reaching someone?  I am sure, and this can be frustrating.  But in AWE we can reach our Divine Savior on the first try. Because in Him through the Holy Spirit,  I can reach Him, and Billions can do the same simultaneously.

We have an awesome God, and He the almighty God…

Conclusion: To read ‘Stories’ go to the Fiction aisle of the bookstore and find them. But the Holy Bible is all about the Inspired Word of God.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father we come and Jesus our Lord and Saver, thank You for being at the Right hand of the Father, as You said where tow or more are gathered You are in our Midst. Lord we thank You for this opportunity of knowing this that You hear our Prayers, and wherever we asked in Your Name, we must believe that we have received it, and to Thank You. Lord grant us your favors on our Visitors and us all, As we remain in Faith… Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

Sunday June 13, 2021

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

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

Text: Isaiah 30:21  (NKJV)

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

“This is the way, walk in it,”

Whenever you turn to the right hand

Or whenever you turn to the left.

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

John 14:4-6 (NKJV)

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

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

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

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

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

1 Corinthians 6:20

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

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

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

Suggested Further Reading: Ecclesiastes 5:1-7

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

Coming to our Lord:

Our topic today was.. to focus on the Giver and not on what is Given. 

Our Lord who gives us Life-Eternal life through His Grace (Grace is something that is ‘UN-Merited’) and by Faith … (Faith is believing in Something that is UN-Seen) by these two factors that are to the non-believers ‘Intangibles’, but our Divine God only provides His Blessings through these Heavenly Factors.  Therefore, without Faith there is no power, but when we combine His Grace and our Faith we are empowered by His Holy Spirit.

To experience this Power of Abundant Life, one must come to Him and accept His Priceless Gift of His Redemption, to be Redeemed. We must acknowledge that we cannot go to His Kingdom without His Sanctification by His Blood.

Conclusion:

Happiness is within our Heart, it is not in our Wallet,  The Grace of God is more resourceful that the fattest wallet or the largest bank account. 

1) Knowing that God loves us all, meaning we must be rooted in Love.

2) To remain un-shaken, remain strong by the Established Love.

3) To be rooted and established in Christ’s Love,

4) To be filled with God’s Holy Spirit,

5) That one must be satisfied and complete in Him,

6) To move towards the full purpose that God intended for us,

7) Let the Power of His Holy Spirit work in us

Prayer:

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

SATURDAY June 12, 2021

Today is the Sabbath, and it is observed by many…

Jesus and His disciples continued their mission work, as usual, to the point that Jesus was accused of healing on a Sabbath.

Luke 13:14

But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath; and he said to the crowd, “There are six days on which men ought to work; therefore, come and be healed on them, and not on the Sabbath day.”

In many parts of the world including the USA, Saturday is a religious day. As said the Sabbath was made for man….

Matthew 12

New King James Version

Jesus Is Lord of the Sabbath

12 At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. And His disciples were hungry and began to pluck heads of grain and to eat. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to Him, “Look, Your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath!”

But He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him: how he entered the house of God and ate the showbread which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests? Or have you not read in the law that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple [a]profane the Sabbath, and are blameless? Yet I say to you that in this place there is One greater than the temple. But if you had known what this means, ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless. For the Son of Man is Lord [b]even of the Sabbath.”

Healing on the Sabbath

Now when He had departed from there, He went into their synagogue. 10 And behold, there was a man who had a withered hand. And they asked Him, saying, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?”—that they might accuse Him.

11 Then He said to them, “What man is there among you who has one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will not lay hold of it and lift it out? 12 Of how much more value than is a man than a sheep? Therefore, it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.” 13 Then He said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched it out, and it was restored as whole as the other. 14 Then the Pharisees went out and plotted against Him, how they might destroy Him.

Legalism is a form of religion, and both of these cannot save you. If you do not know Christ and accepted Him, then all the observation and rituals are for naught.  As said by a young theologian recently, ‘A Christian without an ounce of Christ- this is meaningless’

Fear is another factor that we must avoid, as being fearful is to be without faith. And losing faith is a sign of a misplaced Trust.

Regardless of what… when there seems to be no way, the Lord will make a way.

So, today we will seek the Lord, seek His blessing, give Him the Glory, and make Him Pre-eminent in all things.

The definition of fear is… Fear definition, a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc.

In reality, we must define ‘Fear” by discerning the truth and weigh the truth against the lies, that translate to mistrust.


What a privilege He gave us to be able to come to Him. Hebrews 7:25..."Therefore He is able to save completely those who come to God through Him (Jesus), because He always lives to intercede for them. (Hebrews 7:25 NIV) 

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord Jesus today as many are gathered Lord as You said You are in their midst… Lord let Your presence be felt and let Your churches be filled with Hearers that will receive Your Good News of your Redemption.

Lord bless our Visitors and us all, we give You the Praise and the Glory now and forever.. Amen

FRIDAY June 11, 2021

Matthew 16:26

Recently I attended a Memorial Service, and the Hearst was driving off, I said to my fiend… ”Notice there is no trailer hitch attached”  Why? We take nothing with us.

For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

Commentary

Are you a good custodian? can you be trusted?  A Custodian of what? Money, Your Faith, Your Freedom? The Providence of our Lord?

One of the most prized gifts that one could receive is what? Guess what, it is not money, it is not the big house or the big car, it is the Grace of God. The freedom from Sin is the most prized of all gifts…  This is confirmed in  the scripture text of:

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

Considering the ultimate Gift being Life-Everlasting, therefore make every provision to guard this prize knowing…our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior the Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians 3: 20 NKJV

Our Lord died once and was raised from the dead, He rose triumphantly, ascended to heaven, and sits on the throne of Righteousness. Just as when you come to Christ and receive Him, you received His Grace, His Grace is ‘Forever’ when you faithfully, Sincerely,  confess your sins and ask His to be Lord of your life; you will be forgiven and knowing Jesus you are now counted among the living.  Yet we are still sinners, but now under His Grace. Read Romans 6:15-23

Principle:

Live by His precepts as He said… Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6: 33 NKJV

Conclusion:

Romans 5 Good News Translation (GNT)

Right with God

5 Now that we have been put right with God through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 He has brought us by faith into this experience of God's grace, in which we now live. And so, we boast of the hope we have of sharing God's glory! 3 We also boast of our troubles, because we know that trouble produces endurance, 4 endurance brings God's approval, and his approval creates hope. 5 This hope does not disappoint us, for God has poured out his love into our hearts by means of the Holy Spirit, who is God's gift to us.

6 For when we were still helpless, Christ died for the wicked at the time that God chose. 7 It is a difficult thing for someone to die for a righteous person. It may even be that someone might dare to die for a good person. 8 But God has shown us how much he loves us—it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us! 9 By his blood we are now put right with God; how much more, then, will we be saved by him from God's anger! 10 We were God's enemies, but he made us his friends through the death of his Son. Now that we are God's friends, how much more will we be saved by Christ's life! 11 But that is not all; we rejoice because of what God has done through our Lord Jesus Christ, who has now made us God's friends.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Romans 6:15-23 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be! 16 Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, 18 and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.

19 I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in sanctification.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord today as we go in faith trusting You and thanking You for Your Divine Grace Your Unconditional Love and Your Gift of Redemption, we are privileged to be in Your presence. Lord You have made it possible for us all to look to that day when we shall see You as You are; knowing that our citizenship is in heaven, and we eagerly await your return Lord Jesus. We honor You Lord with our possessions as it is all Yours Lord and we bring You the First Fruits of all our increase. Lord thank You for Your Providence as we seek You first knowing that You have Paid-It-All. Lord be with our Visitors and grant each Your favors as we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

THURSDAY June 10, 2021

The Ring of Fire Eclipse will be seen today.

The annual eclipse will start being visible in those northerly regions fortunate enough to see it at 5:49 a.m. EDT (0949 GMT),  The maximum eclipse will happen at 6:41 a.m. EDT (1041 GMT) in the north polar region.

The annular phase will last roughly 3 minutes and 51 seconds. 

While this eclipse will last only almost 4 Minutes, the sun went dark for three-hours on the day of Jesus’ Crucifixion.

Matthew 27:45 Jesus Dies on the Cross

Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land.

All eclipses only last a few minutes and are mostly partial eclipses that can last just a few hours. Today’s eclipse will still be partial with an outer ring from the Sun.

The miracle of miracles is the Resurrection… and Resurrection morning was a day like none other that the first Easter. Jesus appeared to His Disciples, Mary and to many during the forty days following His Resurrection.

Today, we can say… For we know our Redeemer lives.

1 Peter 1:3

A Heavenly Inheritance

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Prayer:

Father in Heaven, just like how Job said…  For I know that my Redeemer lives, And He shall stand at last on the earth; Lord Jesus we thank You for Your Saving-Grace. Lord bless our Visitors and us all, to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory, now and forevermore.. Amen.

WEDNESDAY June 9, 2021

A Truly Amazing Grace… the Graciousness of God the Father.

David known for his major conquest of killing Goliath, and also known for his affairs with Bathsheba. And the most heinous of having Uriah killed on the battlefield.

Yet God said, David is a man of His own heart.

2 Samuel 11

David, Bathsheba, and Uriah

It happened in the spring of the year, at the time when kings go out to battle, that David sent Joab and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the people of Ammon and besieged Rabbah. But David remained at Jerusalem. Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house. And from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold. So, David sent and inquired about the woman. And someone said, “Is this not Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?” ...

The action of David against Uriah…

  1.  Samuel 11:14

In the morning it happened that David wrote a letter to Joab and sent it by the hand of Uriah.

  1. 2 Samuel 11:15

And he wrote in the letter, saying, “Set Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retreat from him, that he may be struck down and die.”

  1. 2 Samuel 11:16

So it was, while Joab besieged the city, that he assigned Uriah to a place where he knew there were valiant men.

  1. 2 Samuel 11:17

Then the men of the city came out and fought with Joab. And some of the people of the servants of David fell; and Uriah the Hittite died also.

In spite of this David repented, and came to God and sought God’s forgiveness…

A Prayer of Repentance

Psalm 51

A Prayer of Repentance

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David when Nathan the prophet went to him, after he had gone into Bathsheba.

51 Have mercy upon me, O God,
According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.

For I acknowledge my transgressions,
And my sin is always before me.
Against You, You only, have I sinned,
And done this evil in Your sight—
That You may be found just [
a]when You speak,
And blameless when You judge.

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
And in sin my mother conceived me.
Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Make me hear joy and gladness,
That the bones You have broken may rejoice.
Hide Your face from my sins,
And blot out all my iniquities.

Acts 13:22

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.’

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in the presence of Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus because You are in our Midst, we uphold Your Holy Presence.  Lord today as we in Awe knowing Father God said, David the son of Jesse, a man after His own heart. And we acknowledge David’s repentance and the Graciousness of God the Father. Lord Jesus today because of Your Divine Redemption we thank You and we ask Your blessing on our Visitors and us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forever,.. Amen.

TUESDAY June 8, 2021

The Shining Light on the Hill…

Yesterday we wrote about losing the ‘Glow’

The United States is ranked the world's most influential country, followed by China in second. Narrowly behind China, Russia ranked third. Germany followed in fourth, with France placing fifth.  

The United Kingdom took the number six spot, with Japan in seventh. India lands in eighth, with Italy in ninth. Israel rounds out the top 10.

Canada just missed placing in the top 10, placing eleventh.

These ranking are for what? Super-power, military, technology, or wealth? By saying we are the most influential country, lest we forget… Just like King Saul, the Lord removed the anointing.  So, we must do what is said…

2 Chronicles 7:14

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

Today, there is a battle in Israel, COVID-19, confrontation of China-India, North Korea, Afghanistan, South China Sea – Taiwan.

While these issues are in the spotlight, the continued massacre of the unborn babies continues at a rate of according to WHO, every year in the world there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions. This corresponds to approximately 125,000 abortions per day.

In the USA there is 3,000 per day.

The Holocaust killed 17 Million. The 40-60 Million abortions are a high number, but even one is too much. Who speaks for these innocent lives taken by the hour?

Jesus said… Matthew 18:6

Jesus Warns of Offenses

“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

So, to be a Shining City on the Hill we need to do as God said…

2 Chronicles 7:14

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

As a nation, we have national day of Prayer, is this turning out to be political forum? We saw the recent Presidential proclamation made  that failed to mention God…

When God is left out of the equation, failure to recognize Him, we end up with a society just as where we are today.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:  YES… HE Jesus IS THE GREAT “I AM”

Action/Coming to our Lord: Come to Jesus today and rise above the anxieties of this world… Accept His priceless Gift now. Just Pray… Lord Jesus save me I am a Sinner, I commit my life to You and accepts Your Redemption by Your Blood of Atonement shed for my sin. I repent and ask that You come into my heart and let Your Holy Spirit fill me as I look to You knowing that you are God. In Your precious name Lord Jesus, I pray… Amen.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus just as you said…”Today you will be with me in Paradise, Lord we accept Your Covenant of Grace knowing that You are the Great I AM and that all things are held together by You Lord. Lord be with our Visitors today as the anxieties of this world is overwhelming but the Peace in You transcends all understanding. Lord lead us to Green Pastures and Still waters as we journey in the shadows of death we fear nothing because You are with us. Lord: we pay in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to you is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen

MONDAY June 7, 2021

Is America losing the glow? Who is the shining light on the hill?

Are we drifting apart?  Is politics taking center stage?

All these questions may be answered…  Yes.

Maybe the age of information created a lot of negativities, and it is worse, when news is gathered by a computer using algorithm.

Have you called the utility company lately, and the artificial intelligent attendant responded? Try getting a live person, the computer will not let you get one, but this is how you do it.  Start speaking a foreign language or just mumble, then the AI assistant will say let me get you an attendant.

There is a trick of how to get an operator… when you press zero, the response will be… that is not an option, ignore it and hold down the 0 and count to ten, this should get you a live person.

Reaching God is less complicated, just say “Lord Jesus” I want to talk… and you are connected.

Of the world’s population which is 7.8 billion, 31+% are Christian and all can be in prayers simultaneously.

It is possible to break  the Internet, but no one can interrupt God’s communication channel.

Jesus said… ‘Come unto to me and I will give your rest’

Let us refresh our memory... with God (Jesus) all things are possible… Mark 6:37-44 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

37 But He answered them, “You give them something to eat!” And they *said to Him, “Shall we go and spend two hundred denarii on bread and give them something to eat?” 38 And He *said to them, “How many loaves do you have? Go look!” And when they found out, they *said, “Five, and two fish.” 39 And He commanded them all to sit down by groups on the green grass. 40 They sat down in groups of hundreds and of fifties. 41 And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food and broke the loaves and He kept giving them to the disciples to set before them; and He divided up the two fish among them all. 42 They all ate and were satisfied,43 and they picked up twelve full baskets of the broken pieces, and also of the fish. 44 There were five thousand men who ate the loaves.

As we look towards a new day, let us start by gathering the armaments of:

The Belt of Truth
The Breastplate of Righteousness
The Shield of Faith
The Shore of the Gospel of PEACE
The Shoe of the Spirit
The Helmet of Salvation

These all-Powerful components in these six pieces of armaments are:

TRUTH:
RIGHTEOUSNESS
FAITH
SALVATION
PEACE
THE HOLY SPIRIT

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

Imagine with these four pieces of HIS Weapon, we are more powerful that the most advance weapon system made by man. We will be Powered by Truth, Shielded from any attack, Shielded and be invisible to the enemy, and be able to fire the most advanced weapon, which is a HIS WORD, a flameless Divine Laser that is Super-Natural, powered by HIS HOLY SPIRIT. Yes we are given His Gift:

  1. 1 Corinthians 13:2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 (in Context) 1 Corinthians 13 (Whole Chapter)
  2. Philippians 4:13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:12-14 (in Context) Philippians 4 (Whole Chapter)

Father in Heaven through Jesus my Redeemer and my Eternal God in One of Your Divine Trinity and Your Holiness, we come Lord Jesus knowing that You sits on the Throne of Righteousness and in You Your Supremacy has being endowed by our Father our Creator.  Lord Jesus today we seek to be equipped with Your Armor of Truth, Righteousness, Faith, and be powered by Your Holy Spirit to face this world. We are privileged to bring the Good News of your Salvation to many so that your Kingdom will be enlarged as we seek to serve and be a vessel for you my Lord. Lord be with our Visitors, as we pause to remember those perished in the Philippines, Lord be with those as we pray for the rescue and recovery and bless your servants reaching those in need. We Pray in Your Holy name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

SUNDAY June 6, 2021

Grace Versus Faith, GRACE = GOD.  FAITH versus FATE…

Text:  Ephesians 1: 7    In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His Grace.

Commentary: Grace means: unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification.  a virtue coming from God,  a state of sanctification enjoyed through divine grace.

Faith is found in the Bible 229 times in the KJV.  

Faith means firm belief in something for which there is no proof (2): complete trust on something we cannot see.

Fate means: the will or principle or determining cause by which things in general are believed to come to be as they are or events to happen as they do, the word Fate is found in neither the KJV nor the NKJV.

An example of Fate…An example of fate is when you miss your bus and meet the person who will turn out to be your spouse while you are standing on the platform waiting on the next bus. The supposed force, principle, or power that predetermines events.

Sanctification means: the state of being sanctified, the state of growing in divine grace as a result of Christian commitment after baptism or conversion

Let us bring the above together; God’s Grace is Through Jesus as the Incarnate God in The Holy Trinity. Jesus is the Great “I AM” because; as Jesus said…”Before Abraham was, I was” Therefore, with this said, the Unequalled Supremacy of Jesus is on record.

John 1 (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.

Colossians 1: The Incomparable Christ...15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. 18 He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. 19 For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:  Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works for us. Ephesians 3: 20 NKJV

  1. Conclusion: When God calls us, he has  better place for us Never question God
  2. Be prepared to move when God tell you
  3. Be prepared to trust God as his plans for us is to Prosper us
  4. We are called to be agent of God's kinship The Prize
  5. God will place us where He wants to do his mission
  6. We are called to mission everyday to be an ambassador on His behalf
  7. Each of us have a life with a different story
  8. We must use our life as a metaphor from the Gospel to spread the light of the world our Lord Jesus.
  9. Find the mission for ourselves as when we spread the Fragrance if God we receive his fragrance too

10.Still, He chooses to work through me, and his blessing will flow to other for His .glory

11.The prize and rewards

12.By placing Jesus first, I have been blessed beyond my expectation

13.His rewards are an abundant life

14.Because God bless those who takes risks for Him, but the risk is insured by faith

15.Not only do we have his assurance it is eternal as we lay up treasures in heaven as his faithfulness abounds, but we also have His Assurance.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus I come, Lord Jesus today we acknowledge that You have brought it all together by Your Grace. It is Grace that saves us, and by Your Grace Lord we have Your Redemption.  Lord Jesus today as we come knowing that no one comes to the Father unless through You we stand at the empty cross knowing that You have ascended to the Throne of Righteousness and sits at the Right Hand of our Father. Lord we thank you for this privilege of serving You. Lord bless each of our Visitors and grant them Your Peace. In Your precious name Lord Jesus, we pray and to you is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

SATURDAY June 5, 2021

What we say is a representation,  this is how we look at what we hear from someone making a statement. In business there is a clause called the exculpatory clause, this clause is saying what we have just said is not to be relied on ,and it is not intended to be a representation, so it is a way of stretching the truth? Or making a statement that may be not real?

Commentary

Our lives and our relations with everyone are also controlled by a small device, called the tongue.

Text: James 3:6

And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.

Commentary: The great fire of Chicago was started by a small fire…. It is said that a chicken overturned a lantern, and this led to the blaze.

The Titanic was steered into an iceberg, the rudder is a small part of a large ship, but it dictates the direction of a large vessel.

1 Peter 17: 19 … but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world but was revealed in these last times for your sake.

Acts 24: 19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God

The fact that outside of Christ I had no spiritual life, meaning without HIS Grace, I could not have any Spiritual Communion with the Living God as under Adam we are all Dead. , John 15:5 Jesus said: “Apart from me you can do nothing” Therefore without Him I am an OUTCAST, so I seek Jesus every moment.

Live a life worthy of the calling you have received. 2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.  4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

 1 John 5:3-4 (NKJV)

3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. 4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

1 John 4:4  (NKJV)

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

Conclusion: Today we discussed the small organ of our body that can render great damage, deep wounds to separate our loved ones and even separate us from our Lord. Therefore, let us gain control of our tongue from within our heart, by have a heart that is filled with Love as Love conquers all…

We can achieve the following by coming to our Lord…

1 Nearness to God,

2) Oneness with fellow believers,

3) Peace with one another,

4) One person out of two, (there are neither Jews nor Gentile in the presence of our Lord)

5) Access by One Spirit to the Father (Only through Jesus we can come to the Father)

6) As a Fellow citizen with the Saint of God’s Household,

 7) Build on the Foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, by living for HIM

Conclusion: Organic Unity is having a Personal relationship with our Savior; organizational conformity is knowing Him and having intimacy with our Lord and to comes to our Lord with love for Him

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

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord we thank You for Your Unconditional Love and Your Saving Grace. Lord thank You for Your Divine Redemption as we Praise You and look to you as our Redeemer. Lord without You Lord we would be like the rich man that trusted in worldly wealth, Lord we thank you for letting  us be custodians and be good stewards as all is for Your Glory. Lord knowing that Your Grace is sufficient,  bless our Visitors, we Pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

To think about… The rich man that led a sumptuous life while on earth…. Luke 16:24

“Then he cried and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.’

FRIDAY June 4, 2021

His Faithfulness…

Romans 11:33-36

New King James Version

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

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

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

The Doxology above clearly states the Three factors, His riches, Wisdom, and Knowledge.

Beyond His Faithfulness, we have His Grace, and forgiveness.

Because of His ‘Unsearchable’ judgments, and His forbearance …

Romans 2:4

Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? In Context |

Philippians 1:6

being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; In Context | 

Hebrews 12:2

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

Commentary:

While we are assured of God’s Faithfulness and Forbearance of our sins, the text above said..’He who begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ, what is that day?

Here is the answer..,

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.

So, there will be no temple, churches, or place of refuge.

Romans 8: 1 -2 gives us the Assurance…

Romans 8:1-2

New King James Version

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who[a] do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

Romans 8:28-32

New King James Version

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

God’s Everlasting Love

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

Prayer:

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.

THURSDAY June 3, 2021

Facing ‘False’ doctrine… How Paul dealt with this and the declaration of Paul’s conversion, and Jesus’ own intervention in making him a Vessel to bring the Gospel to the Gentiles.

Text: Galatians 1 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Introduction

1 Paul, an apostle (not sent from men nor through the agency of man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised Him from the dead), and all the brethren who are with me,

To the churches of Galatia:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forevermore. Amen.

Perversion of the Gospel

I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!  As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!

10 For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.

Paul Defends His Ministry

11 For I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. 12 For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

Commentary:

This is the same Saul (later known as Paul) that was holding the garment of those stoning Stephen to death. Saul was a persecutor of Christians, and he was a dedicated follower of Judaism, his mission in life was to gather all Jews that were converted to Christ and bring them to be persecuted or even to death.  Our Lord Jesus chose this violent man Saul; and made him a Vessel to reach sinners like me.  Paul was not an apostle, but he was chosen by Christ.  As we see Paul’s ministry and His dedication to Jesus in spite of the many challenges that he faced, even to death, yet he never wavered, and his conviction founded on the Grace of our Lord is recorded in a greater portion of the New Testament. We like to call the New Testament ‘Part-2 of the Holy Bible, as the Old Testament (Part-1) is revealed in the New Testament.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Is there a modern-day Saul/Paul? Is there a modern-day king Cyrus? Reflecting back on King Cyrus how he repatriated the Israelites from Babylon and restored Israel… Our God used some of the most unlikely individuals to accomplish His mission.

EVENING:

  1. Our Omniscient Creator/God lacks no knowledge, as He is able know our thoughts even before we take action.. The grand design of His Creation orchestrated by the law of Physics, the beauty of His Creation, all things including us all.  Now God who is omnipotent also deployed His power at the level of man, why?  An example… while the army of the Pharaoh pursued the Israelites when they were going over the dry pathway, the Lord could have eliminated them by one sweep, but God frustrated the soldiers by ‘Jamming’ the wheels of their chariots, then they realized and said…Exodus 14: 24 During the last watch of the night the Lord looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion. 25 He jammed the wheels of their chariots so that they had difficulty driving. And the Egyptians said, “Let us get away from the Israelites! The Lord is fighting for them against Egypt.”

Our Lord being the Almighty God also has a sense of humor as He threw the Egyptians army into confusion…

Prayer:

Father in Jesus we come knowing that our Lord Jesus rose triumphantly, and You Lord Jesus sits on the Throne of Righteousness and by Your Blood of Atonement we are saved. Your Divine Grace and Your Eminence and Sovereignty was revealed to man over 700 Years before You came to Redeem us, Lord Jesus today in Faith we seek You and open our hearts to You so that Your Holy Spirit will come and by Your Grace upon our Visitors and we will be Sealed with Your Blood of Atonement, looking to that day Lord when we shall see You as You are.  In Your Holy name Lord Jesus, we pray and give You the Power and the Glory, now and forevermore… Amen.

Mark 12:30

New International Version (NIV)

30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’

Commentary:

Matthew 10:37

New International Version (NIV)

37 “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

What was Jesus saying here? No, He was not saying we are not to love our family, He was saying our love must be first to Him as He is the provider of Life, He is our Trusted Savior, as He will protect us, and when we love Him first, our family will be in Grace as we seek Him first.  When you love someone, what do you want for that person?  All the good things in life, the best that we can have for comfort, health, and prosperity.  These He will provide to us all when we give our love to Him first. 

To think that when we leave this earth nothing will matter as the He paid it all… But in reality, while we are here, our Lord said… Seek Him first and His Righteousness, and all of our needs will be met.

The story told by my cousin of the invitation extended to him by the Russian school system to explain how they may use the Bible as a curriculum to teach the life of Christ, and how he told them it would be a difficult thing to do as it takes more than just opening the Bible and reading it, it takes Faith and a relationship with the Lord, to the then recently liberated country on the brink of democracy, this statement was rather dumfounding to many.  He went on the relate the story of being ‘Born-Again’ amazingly a year later his organization hosted over a thousand school board members and teachers that accepted the Lord.

Sometimes we wonder where the USA as a nation in is recognizing Jesus our Messiah;   our nation went from a lending economy to a debtor nation and as we can track the timeline, it appears just about when we started to turn away from our Lord.

We have the result of the election in the USA, and more than ever we need to come to our Lord Jesus and Pray for this nation to turn to God so that He may heal our Land.

His Faithfulness:

As we can see Jesus when He was around 12 years old, He remained behind after Mary and Joseph went on their journey home, but they found that He was left behind and they went back and found Jesus’ teaching in the Temple among the Elders… 

Luke 2:48-51

New International Version (NIV)

48 When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.”

49 “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” 50 But they did not understand what he was saying to them.

51 Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart.

Was Jesus neglecting His earthly parents? No… He was always with them, just like He is  always with us. Jesus is Omniscience, Omnipresence & Omnipotent, therefore we are to remain focused on Jesus as He is our Redeemer and our Eternal Sovereign God in One of the Father our Creator, and Jesus was there from the beginning of it all.

His Promise:

2 Timothy 4:8
Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus today as we seek you and in Faith look to You as our Eternal sovereign God in One of our Father and Creator, we thank You Lord Jesus for Your Saving Grace.  Lord today the future remains unclear to many but in You Lord we have Victory. Lord bless our Visitors and we thank you Lord for the privilege of serving You for Your Glory.  Lord instill in the leaders 0f this United States of America the need to turn to you knowing that You are in charge and that without Your presence being acknowledged, we will be a nation in need.  Lord let this nation turn to You and as we do Heal our land.  We commit all to you Lord and to your Lord Jesus is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

TUESDAY June 1, 2021

Hope is considered  intangible, but without it life can be challenging…

Hope is something that we cannot touch. But intangible assets are powerful values, such as…  Examples of intangible assets include brand recognition, goodwill, patents, trademarks, copyrights, proprietary technology, and customer lists.

Intellectual properties are intangibles, so Tech-Giants like Google,® Microsoft® and IBM® the value of these entities is measured by their intellectual properties.

Placing value on HOPE that is a priceless factor… why? When we interconnect Hope + Belief + Faith. One may say all three of these are intangibles. But, in Christ, this is Priceless.

Why is this ‘Priceless’? It has no expiration, date,  versus the patent expiration of Intellectual properties, when they become generic, and of no value.

So, to face the reality of what is to come, we will ask a question that pertains to right now… Who is the most important person you will meet today, who would you like to meet? Could it be a high-profile celebrity and if you do what would this do for you.  But  the day of the ‘Rapture’ could be today, or in an hour or less… so which boarding pass do we have? remember to Journey with our Lord there is only one-way, no alternate route, no compromise, only one Criterion! To be Born-Again or the answer is “I do not know you”  So,  to ‘know of’ Jesus is not enough to ‘Know Him’ and follow Him is what He said.

His instruction is very Simple…Seek Him First and His Righteousness,  Call on Him and You will be Saved.
You may say what are we talking about, what proof do we have, and how do we know this will occur.  First we must know the facts:

  1. We are created in the Likeness of God
  2. We are loved by our Lord
  3. Jesus came and Died, and His Triumphant Resurrection was to Redeem us
  4. We are able to gain Live-Everlasting in Christ
  5. He is returning Again

Action/Coming to our Lord:

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 the Covid 19 Pandemic, economic woes, Europe, China, the USA and everywhere else, we have Hope mentioned 121 times in the KJV and 159 times in the NIV Bibles.

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.

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.”

Our hope in Christ founded on… 

2 Corinthians 2:14  (NKJV)

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

Matthew 26: 41 NIV

Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in our Lord Jesus we come to knowing that You are on the Throne of Righteousness, and You intercedes for us, Lord, fill us with Your Holy Spirit and direct our pathways as we seek to be led by Your divine guidance as the Author and Finisher of our Faith.  And by Faith we come and accept You Lord knowing that all things work for good to those that love You, and in acknowledgement of Your Word, that You will never leave us nor forsake us. Lord be with each of our Visitors and bless every one with Your providence. We pray this in Your Holy Name, and we give You the Praise and to you Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory, now and forevermore… Amen.

MONDAY May 31, 2021

It is Memorial Day-USA

Remembering the brave men and women who paid the ultimate price.

As said…  ‘War is hell’

William Tecumseh Sherman Quotations
Union General in the American Civil War. Nicknames includes “Cump” and “Uncle Billy”.
Most famous quote is probably “War is Hell”

Wars resolved aggressions and human tragedies, but humans tend to forget the caption of ‘War is Hell’. By leaning on their own understanding. Some countries will feel superior to others, and by their own actions will advance against their neighbors. Ultimately history will denounce the tyrant of taking such actions.

Peace:

Philippians 4:7

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

Today let us use the day and the coming days to spread the Word of Jesus…

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.

Our personal ‘War’ is won in Christ… as he said:

Luke 3:5

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

2 Chronicles 20:15

for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

And he said, “Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the Lord to you: ‘Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

Remember…

  1. Mark 11:23

For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

  1. 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.

Philippians 4:6 New International Version (NIV)

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

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

Psalm 25:14

14 The Lord confides in those who fear him;
    he makes his covenant known to them.

Notice: Our Lord ‘Confides’ in us who Love Him (For if we Love Him we also Respect Him, and Fearing Him is not how we serve Him, but by Love, Faith, and knowing that He is God) When we live by these precepts, He shows us His Covenants.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair, persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4: 8-9 NKJV

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

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, in Jesus we come. Lord we thank you for Your Graciousness and Your Redemption through Your Devine Crucifixion and Triumphant Resurrection. Lord it is only by Your Grace that we have hope and in You Lord Jesus we have victory over death by Your Sacrifice of atonement. Lord we receive by Faith Your forbearance of our sins. Lord we thank You for Your Covenant of Grace as we can say Justification comes only from You as we place our Faith in You Lord Jesus. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us Your Peace and Favors Lord. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

SUNDAY May 30, 2021

Giving our Lord Jesus the Glory, because we can do nothing without Christ, but with Jesus all things are possible. 

Text: Romans 8: 28… And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Commentary (Excerpt from ‘Gospel for Asia’ Newsletter)

A man doesn’t suddenly walk after four years of paralysis. But perhaps the strangest part of Tanveer’s miracle was that no one dared to ask questions. Tanveer and his family would have been happy to answer them, but there was a power the villagers feared more than the strange God who healed their neighbor. That power was named Ekanath. Ekanath’s Daughter-in-Law Suffers Hemorrhage, Finds No Cure, If anyone should have been excited about Tanveer’s healing; it was Ekanath, who was searching for healing for his own daughter-in-law Haadiyaa. She had been suffering from a hemorrhage for the last year, and the blood loss was slowly wilting her away.

Medical treatments failed, so Ekanath and his son Qays asked witchdoctors to sacrifice animals and perform special rituals for Haadiyaa’s healing. They took her to the temple and pleaded with their deities, but each day, Haadiyaa only grew weaker and her family grew less optimistic.  In the midst of their search for a cure, their neighbor Tanveer was healed of paralysis, but even this didn’t bring the Ekanath’s family hope. It couldn’t because Tanveer had received healing from the Christian God. When Tanveer started walking again, Ekanath immediately became too busy ostracizing his neighbor from the community to let anyone listen to the man’s miraculous story.

Haadiyaa’s family tried everything for healing—except listening to their neighbor who had been miraculously healed of paralysis. Father-in-Law Opposes Pastor, New Believers. When Tanveer’s pastor, Lahar, began visiting, Ekanath made sure he knew he wasn’t welcome. “Don’t try to convert the people into a new faith,” he shouted. “You are … polluting our community!”

Ekanath spoke so forcefully against the believers that no one would talk to them or listen to Pastor Lahar’s message..  Pastor Lahar didn’t give up easily. Perhaps the people could dismiss the miraculous healing of one man, but after visiting the village several times, Pastor Lahar realized there was a way he could help that would allow everyone to see his good intentions.

The village already had a well and a hand pump, but that didn’t provide nearly enough water for the 500 families in the village. Every day, people walked two miles to get water for drinking, cooking and cleaning.

Pastor Lahar realized what the people needed was a ‘Jesus Well’, and his leaders agreed. Soon, a new well was drilled near Tanveer’s house, and 200 families were able to fulfill their daily needs through it.

The generosity so touched the hearts of the villagers that even Ekanath stopped opposing Pastor Lahar, and everyone began talking to Tanveer and his family. Then Ekanath’s son Qays met Tanveer at the well one day. As the two men talked, the former outcast finally got to share his story.

After Pastor Lahar provided a Jesus Well with enough water for 200 families, everyone was happy to talk to him and the other believers again. Son Hears Believer’s Story at Jesus Well Tanveer had been paralyzed for four years when Pastor Lahar showed up at his house. The pastor normally ministered in a place 18 miles from Tanveer’s village, but when a local believer asked him to pray for a crippled man, Pastor Lahar willingly agreed. When he arrived at Tanveer’s house, Pastor Lahar shared the Gospel with Tanveer and prayed for him. The same day, Tanveer received complete healing and eternal life. Qays was excited to hear this story, and he shared with Tanveer about his wife, Haadiyaa’s illness. Tanveer encouraged him to bring his wife to Pastor Lahar’s church.

When the couple returned home, the whole family was astonished at what they found: Haadiyaa had stopped bleeding. When Haadiyaa’s husband heard how Jesus had healed their neighbor, the couple decided to visit Pastor Lahar’s church. Daughter-in-Law’s Healing Brings New Life.  Just like Tanveer and his family, Haadiyaa, Qays and their son chose to follow Jesus the same day He demonstrated His healing power to them.  Every week, Pastor Lahar visits the two families to pray with them and teach them from the Bible. And most weeks, the two families take the journey between villages themselves.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord Jesus Eternal God in One of our Father in Your Holy Trinity we stand knowing that You Lord Jesus said come unto You all who are weary and heavily burdened. Lord, we are  burdened today  and need resources for the needy and those needy ones Lord are in need of knowing You Lord.

Lord bless our Visitors and grants to each Your Favor as in You all things are possible. We pray in Your Holy Name L0rd Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

SATURDAY May 29, 2021

Text: Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Commentary

The benefits offered from Life Insurance policies are designed to provide a ‘pay-out’ upon death, there are some policies that will give you an annuity but in the first years there are no benefits, only in the event of death or disability.  God’s plan is a whole lot different…

You do not have to wait till you die… Christ offers His benefits now!

The Plan offered by our Lord differs in the following conditions:

1. God’s Plan is Free

2. The Payout is the Maximum Value far above what the best policy can provide on earth

3. The Benefits never vary

4. All are accepted

5. No Medical Examination necessary

6. Pre-Existing conditions accepted

7. No Monthly payment

8. No Financial statement of income required

9. Foreigners are accepted

10. No Expiration date

11. And the Grace Period of forever.

So how much coverage can one purchase under God’s Plan? The Maximum coverage that includes:

Full Replacement

a. Moving to a Mansion that replaces the modest home one owns and currently occupies

b. All future needs are fully provided

c. Never have to see a doctor or fill a prescription

d. Never have to worry about anything, and all your neighbors will be loving

e. And best of all there will be no Utility bills, as lighting, heating, cooling will be free, all provided by the f. Radiance of our Lord.

g. No need for a Credit Card to dine out, the best of everything will be served.

And guess what, we never will need to be entertained so the 600 channels of nonsense will not be needed , why? Because your new place will be filled with Splendor and Joy.

Now you may ask, where are we reading about this utopia ?  no we did not make this up.  The following scriptures are provided and these are the Word of God…

You can accept His Invitation Now!

Acts 8:20

But Peter said to him, “May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain the gift of God with money! 

This was Peter’s response to Simon the sorcerer that thought he could purchase the ability to perform the power of healing.

John 14:2

In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.  

John 1:12

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, 

Principle:  Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved… Romans  10:13 NKJV

Action/Coming to our Lord:

At Calvary when the thief that said to Jesus, Lord remember me when you come into your Kingdom… This repentant person came to Christ the King that was on the Cross also, His request was made with a Contrite Heart, repenting but also knowing that Jesus was God, and he came in Faith,  his request was responded to by Jesus… Luke 23:43

And He (Jesus)  said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

Romans 8:28-30

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

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

Conclusion:

Ephesians 2:8-9

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

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

Note: The Text above said, It is “BY GRACE” you are saved, through (Your) Faith in Jesus, and His Salvation is from Him (Jesus) and not of anything we can do. Why? Because our ‘righteousness’ is like a filthy rag.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus today we thank You for Your Saving Grace and we praise You for your UN-Conditional Love toward us while we are still sinners. Lord Your Divine Resurrection fulfilled the Covenant of Grace that You have extended us. Lord as we acknowledge Your Gift of Grace that Redeemed us, we are privileged to bring this Good News to others according to Your great commission.  Lord let those that visit our site be redeemed by coming to You today and let Your Holy Spirit be upon us all.

FRIDAY May 28, 2021

The devil needs permission before he can use you, so rebuke the evil one in the name of Jesus and he will flee you.

Text: 1 Peter 5:8
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

Commentary:

Keep this statement handy… “I will not grant permission to the evil one, and the evil one cannot enter me” , my thoughts or use me, as I refuse to grant my permission which is sacred in Christ.

The devil has lots of agents, supported by the broad-based media of Television, Internet, and print materials.

The word ‘Sexy’ is used to sell cars, clothes, even a garbage can.  Who do we blame, the writers, the product manufacturers, the publishers, frankly no!, blame the consumers… if no one buys a product or patronizes a marketing theme, guess what? The product comes to an end or the advertising theme goes off the chart like a bad song.  But when will we learn that if no one buys cigarette, the manufacturers will probably switch to making candies. So, we are declaring ‘war’ against all of what the devil uses to tempt us. 

We urge all our readers to stand your ground by not giving the devil permission, and by emphatically saying “ I will not give my permission” and I refuse to be used by the evil one against my God… Now the foregoing is an idealistic approach, as inherently we are weak… so we need the Armor of God, Ephesians 6:11
Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
Ephesians 6:10-12 (in Context) Ephesians 6 (Whole Chapter)

Principle: Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Ephesians 6:9-11

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

Isaiah 41:10

New International Version (NIV)

10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Conclusion:

We have the assurance from our Lord Jesus, as stated by the Apostle Paul writing to the Romans…

Romans 8:38-39

New International Version (NIV)

38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Notice… not even the devil can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Luke 9:23

New International Version (NIV)

23 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.

 

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus today as we receive Your message to deny ourselves, we do this by placing Your first Lord, as we are abiding in You Your precepts that we shall decrease, and You shall increase. Lord we are privileged to serve and are in Joy of Your mission through this Good News site reaching many for Your Glory Lord. We thank You for the many Visitors and we seek your divine Blessings on us all. Lord in we give You First-Place in our lives, there is no room to permit the evil one to blemish the ‘Oneness’ we have in You Christ Jesus.  Lord guide us and continue to bless us as we seek you because Your first loved us and we return our Love and accept Your Grave. Lord be with us all as we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Thoughts for the Day: Thirteen things that come from the heart

TOPIC:  Many highrise buildings do not have 13th floor because of the number 13

Commentary: Many major cities have buildings without the 13th floor, but who are we fooling, if the elevator goes from 12th to 14th then where is the 13th floor? Obviously, it is the 13th floor.  So being on the ‘14th’ floor where there is no 13th you are physically at the 13th level. 

TEXT: Mark 7: 21-23 New King James Version (NKJV)

Jesus recites 13 things that comes from the heart.

21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed:

  1. Evil thoughts,
  2. Adulteries
  3. Fornications
  4. Murders 
  5. Thefts
  6. Covetousness
  7. Wickedness
  8. Deceit
  9. Lewdness

10.an evil eye

11.Blasphemy

12.Pride

13.Foolishness.

23 All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”

Being superstitious, the number 13 will influence the way you choose an address, the room number, the number of people at a table, etc.  The 13th phobia may have originated from the teaching of Jesus who told of the thirteen things that come from the heart of men.  Therefore, it was considered wise to avoid them.  So do not let the 13th floor be of any concern but let the 13 things that are considered abominations to our Lord be avoided.

So, if you get a raise of pay on Friday the 13th of June 2021, consider it to be ‘good-fortune’ and ignore Friday the 13th… the best news of your lifetime could occur on a Friday the 13th Superstition is paying a form of homage to the devil.  In heavenly realms every day is a day made by our Lord, and it is a beautiful day, it is only marred by mans’ use of the day to render evil instead of good. So let us know the 13 things that Jesus said to avoid.  And by avoiding them we are not being superstitious, we are living by the precepts of our Lord.

"In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." These words famously penned by one of America's founding fathers in a letter to Jean-Baptiste Leroy on Friday 13 November 1789. It is a phrase that still rings true today, and probably always will according to Benjamin Franklin.

But we beg to differ to Ben Franklin’s statement, rather than say nothing can be certain, except death and taxes, but we might add… “this is the Day our Lord has made and it is a beautiful day that we can come to Him and give our Lord Jesus the Glory as it is by His Grace we are saved”. So, if you live in a house with thirteen rooms, do not worry, just thank the Lord for providing you with a place of abode and enjoy it and use it as a place to gather and worship our Lord Jesus for He said it is what comes out of a man that defiles him. So let your thoughts be centered on Christ the Author and Finisher of our Faith.

1 We must plan
I must understand the need & urgency to give forgiveness before He will accept me.
You have to uproot the barrier to truly forgive others
5. Forgiveness is paying a debt of someone that incurred a debt
Forgiveness is to forgive & to forget
The gospel is the Grace of our Lord and his Power

  • Mercy is of Grace
  • Jesus acted as a servant to us when he was a King
  • God will forgive us it is by his Love that he extended His Grace
  • All sins are all sin,
  • The Grace from Jesus is undeserved, and we cannot earn it
  • Grace is what Jesus paid for by his Blood for us
  • Faith is the power from our God and in His son Jesus we have redemption by his Grace that we are saved and not of ourselves.
  • 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.

If Heaven had anyone that got there on their own, then this would be no different from where we are today, why? That person would be bragging how he accomplished his journey and how well he did.  So, our God has made a place where there will be no hierarchy or super-Christians that can look down on us, only our Lord Jesus who sits of the Throne of Righteousness, and Jesus Himself walked with His disciples and said, He was their ‘Friend’. 

Acts 4:12 (NIV) 12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

Prayer: Heavenly Father, in Jesus our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity we come.  Lord Jesus as You ascended to the Throne of Righteousness as our Lord and Savior, Lord we thank You as through You Lord we were made Joint-Heir to Your Kingdom. Lord we are privileged to be called a Royal Priesthood by Your Redemption, and only by Your Divine Resurrection we can have Victory in You Lord.  Lord we are privileged and Blessed, and we Praise you and give You first place in all our lives. Lord, thank You for the many Visitors coming to hear Your Good News today and Lord bless our Visitors and grants us all Your Favors. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You are the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

WEDNESDAY May 26, 2021

Topic: What should we do with ‘extra-baggage’? extra baggage is what weighs us down. It is used to place handicap of horses in a competition.  Is anyone handicapped by extra baggage?

Text:  “The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:56,57 KJV

Commentary: We have all heard of these, a ‘Fifth-wheel’ and ‘extra baggage’ etc.  Sin is the extra baggage in our lives. It not only weighs us down, but it is also like what you may have heard about...’a cement overcoat’ which leads to a watery grave.  Sin without Jesus’ Redemption is much worse than the watery grave… The Bible said: It is appointed unto man once to die, and then after that the Judgment. 

Hebrews 9:27

New King James Version (NKJV)

27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.

This statement is really saying that when you physically die, you are really not dead, but you will be around for the judgment.

The ‘Grace’ of our Lord given to us it the ‘Grace-Period’ through to the day when we ‘die’ so His Grace allow you to come to Him and receive His Salvation by His Grace through His Blood of Atonement.  What are we saying, to die at the expiration of His Grace and not ‘Knowing’ our Lord Jesus and being saved, then such a person will face His judgment. But being saved by His Grace by coming to Jesus and accepting His Redemption you are now exempt from condemnation as said in Romans 8: 1.

Romans 8:1 (NKJV)

Free from Indwelling Sin

8 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.

Principle:

We are analyzing the extra-baggage of sin.

A] The devil wants to place his sin on you giving you a disadvantage of your walk with the Lord.

B] On the other hand our Lord offers His Salvation which is an advantage given to us when we accept our Lord.

So, choose the ‘Advantage’ offered by our Lord… Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved… Romans 10: 13

EVENINIG:

The Apostle Paul assured those in Thessalonica:

1 Thessalonians 13-18

The Comfort of Christ’s Coming

13 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.

15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 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. 

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Philippians 3:8 (NIV)

8 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage that I may gain Christ

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

Focus on these... NOTE: The Key word here is: KNOW... Knowing turns into Knowledge...

Touchstones...

1.        I must meditate upon him until I "comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge."

2.        I must know him on my own account

3.        I must know him, not as the visionary dreams of him, but as the Word reveals him

4.        If I know him at all, I must love him

5.        An ounce of heart knowledge is worth a ton of what we have in our brains

6.        When I know my Savior, my mind will be full to the brim

 "This is that bread whereof if a man eats, he shall never hunger."

Conclusion: "Just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven (Jesus)" (1 Corinthians 15:49)

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus as we end this day, we thank You for Your Grace and Your Providence in our lives. Lord, we thank You for Your Divine Redemption as You have ‘Paid-It-All’ and by Your Grace we are saved and not of anything we do. Lord we ask Your blessings the less fortunate that may be facing hunger and even homelessness, Lord we seek to serve our sisters and brothers that are your creation that are weighted down with the extra baggage of life. Lord equip us to reach them in Your name Lord.  We pray for a new dawn filled with new beginning as we go in faith knowing that You are our Eternal-Sovereign God. Lord Jesus we pray in your Holy name and to You Lord is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

TUESDAY May 25, 2021

Topic: Is it ‘Fear’ or Respect? It is Respect of ‘Devotion’? The fear of God is the beginning of knowledge…

Text: Proverbs 1:7

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 1:6-8 (in Context) Proverbs 1 (Whole Chapter)

Commentary:  The Unconditional love of our Lord Jesus is wrapped up in His ‘Priceless-Gift’ as He made us ‘Joint-Heirs’ with Him in His Kingdom.  He also called us ‘friends’ and He told us many things, He did not withhold any secrets, He revealed it all.  He is even preparing a place for us beyond this world. 

Fear versus respect wrapped in ‘Love’ should be our relationship with our Savior… Just think of the supremacy of our Lord, He extended His Unconditional love that we often ignore, this is why He said…”Father forgive them for they do not know what they do”.

So, are we confused or just been foolish?  Being called a fool is a very low standard by which one would never like to be known by.  This is wrapped up in the text…Only a fool says that there is no God.

Psalm 14 English Standard Version (ESV)

The Fool Says, There Is No God

To the choirmaster. Of David.

14 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
    They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds,
    there is none who does good.

HIS FAITHFULNESS:

EVENING:

COMING TO OUR LORD:

“Ask, Seek & Knock… >>>>>

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

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

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

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

When we have received the Favor of our Lord as He is Faithful and will grant us our request when we ask in faith, we are to pray with Thanksgiving and to use His provisions for the purpose and not turn away when we have been delivered, you are to continue to seek Him and give Him the Glory.          

CONCLUSION:

A Friend Comes at Midnight

The following were said by Jesus…  This is told so that we may see what a ‘True’ friend is:

And He said to them, “Which of you shall have a friend, and go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine has come to me on his journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; and he will answer from within and say, ‘Do not trouble me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give to you’? I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs.

Keep Asking, Seeking, knocking:  “ASK”

“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 11 If a son asks for bread from any father among you, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!”

Background…. The Text is from Luke… Luke was a Gentile and a physician, and also a missionary that worked alongside Paul.  The time of Luke’s writing was between 60 to 80 years after the birth of Christ. Luke was a witness and lived during the Resurrection of Jesus who was crucified at age 33, therefore the events recorded by Luke are authentic and reliable and factual.

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

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

“All this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s” (1 Samuel 17:47). 

“If God is for us, who can be against us? … In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:31, 37). 

PRAYER: Heavenly Father in JESUS WE COME. Lord thank You for Your Covenant of Grace and Your assurance that the battle is in Your hands. Lord today we thank you for the Visitors to our Websites as we go in Faith spreading Your Good news. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Favors. We pray for all those that are seeking You as you said, all who calls on your Name shall be Saved. Lord be with us all, as we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to you is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

MONDAY May 24, 2021

Good News Forever

A Daily Publication from the GOOD NEWS NETWORK

In spite of the bad-news, today we have Good-News

Enough violence, hatred, and human tragedies, can we ever have peace, amnesty coexistence and brotherly love?

Let us take the road that is less travelled…  A road leading from Jerusalem to the border town of Antioch where Paul, Barnabas, the jailer and his family and Lydia gathered, this became the first place where followers of Christ were called Christian.

Acts 11:26

And when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. So it was that for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people. And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.

As said by Billy Graham, If you were born In a garage this doesn’t make you a car… and likewise being born In a Christian family will not make you a Christian.

Today, as we travel the road, let us remember our journey through this world Is a sojourn. This means It Is merely a stopover. With 8 billion people on this planet, knowing Jesus said..”I am not of this world” so where did He go to? There’s so much we do not know.

The declarations made by Jesus are all real, the day of Pentecost was a realityActs 2

The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.

Today is the Day of Pentecost, so let us rejoice in the Lord as He sent us all a Comforter that Is His Holy Spirit.

Commentary:  No one comes to the Father unless through Jesus… Have you noticed in ‘public-prayers’ Jesus is never mentioned?  Are they praying to a ‘Generic-God’?  For centuries prayers are offered to Saints.  So today if you want to reach the Father you have to come to Him through Jesus.  We have this wonderful day that we can sing… The Church’s one foundation… It is Jesus Christ our Lord.

In Christ there are no Hierarchy, while Peter emerged as a profound speaker on the day of Pentecost, Jesus Himself spoke of Faith like a ‘Child’, we are not to compare our self to anyone else.  

 Here is what Peter said to Christ: Thou art the Christ the Son of the living God… Matthew 16: 16

John the beloved disciple said... Jesus Christ is the Son of God… John 20: 31

Paul: Remember Paul is the self-titled ‘Chief of Sinners’ who became the apostle to the Gentile… He said “I count all things but loss for the Excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord…Philippians 20: 28

John the Baptist... he said “Behold the Lamb of God which takes away the sin of the world… John 1: 29.

And God the Father said: “THIS IS MY BELOVED SON IN WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED” Matthew 3: 17

No one has ever seen God... But Jesus said if you have seen me you have seen the Father. John 1:18

No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

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

John 14:7 [The Father Revealed] “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” John 14:6-8 

John 14:8

Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”

John 14:7-9 (in Context) John 14 (Whole Chapter) 

John 14:9

Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

John 14:10

EVENING:

Salt & Light (Jesus said we you are the salt of the earth)

  • We are bridge builders
  • Do not be assimilated into the worldly lifestyle
  • Be not be motivated by fear but be motivated by Grace
  • To withdraw is to accept defeat and live for self and this is not what Christ commanded
  • Christ came and dwelt among sinners
  • Building bridge requires to be affirmed with Christ
  • Religion is not salvation; why do we worship? It is to praise our Creator who is God our Redeemer
  • To be an overcomer we must be engaged and defeat the enemy

Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.

John 14:11

Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.

John 14:13

And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.) 

Come to Christ today, receive His Divine blessings, and be made a ‘Joint-Heir’ in Christ… Take that step to Victory today.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord you said whatever we ask in Your Name that You will do because all things have been delivered to you lord Jesus. Lord we thank you for your Love, your Redemption and Your Providence.  Lord bless our Visitors and grant Your Favors upon each of us today, We pray in your Holy Name Lord Jesus to you is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

SUNDAY May 23, 2021

Topic: If all it took was money anyone could do it…

 Some thoughts on money and the challenges of getting it…

  1. "A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. " -Oscar Wilde
  2. "I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." -Chinese Proverb.
  3. "Experience is the name so many people give to their mistakes. “-Oscar Wilde
  4. "Every great movement must experience three stages:  ridicule, discussion, adoption. “-John Stuart Mill
  5. "All truth passes through three stages.  First, it is ridiculed.  Second, it is violently opposed.  Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. “-Arthur Schopenhauer
  6. "There are only two ways to live your life.  One is as though nothing is a miracle.  The other is as though everything is a miracle. " -Albert Einstein
  7. "A + B + C = Success if, A = Hard Work, B = Hard Play, C = Keeping  your mouth shut. “-Albert Einstein
  8. “Everyday is a bank account, and time is our currency. No one is rich, no one is poor, we've got 24 hours each.” ― Christopher Rice
  9.  

Focus: Money without health is useless.  You need Health, Wealth and God to be Well. (Maurice Hoo-Good News Forever)

“You will realize one day that all the money in the world cannot buy you happiness. Nor can it make you a person of good character.” ― Richelle E. Goodrich,

TEXT:  Come and buy Milk and Honey without money…

Isaiah 55: 1 “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.

Can Love Coexist with Wealth? Can the wealthy serve God? If wealth is a ‘by-product’ of serving God first, then you may not even have to micro-manage it; it usually comes naturally when placed in second order.

TEXT: Matthew 6:33-34

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

Commentary: 

You may ask… how does this article fit within a daily devotional?  It is somewhat parallel to the Ten Commandments that God gave us through Moses… how? God knew that mankind could not keep them, so he provided a way for us to face the penalty of breaking His commandments.

The Bible said… 

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.

Know that… Romans 3:23

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

His Love for us and His Faithfulness…

Romans 5:8  But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

EVENING:

Conclusion: No one is immune to the constant battle of temptation, the evil one is always lurking and we have to be on the watch, this is why the Text said…” Your Word I have hid in my heart that I may not sin against you” We read about Blaise Pascal who sewed the Bible verse of Psalm 119:16: "I will not forget thy word. Amen." He seems to have carefully sewn this document into his coat and always transferred it when he changed clothes; a servant discovered it only by chance after his death.

Who is Blaise Pascal: he was a French mathematician, physicist, inventor, a writer and Christian philosopher. Pascal was the inventor of the first Calculator a machine that he developed.

Pascal said… There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.

Hebrews 13:5 [Full Chapter]

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Coming to the Lord:

Romans 8:28  (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.

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[a] faith.

Prayer: Heavenly Father we come in Jesus our Lord and Savior… Lord today as we present Your Good News we seek Your Divine guidance to our Visitors and us all, and we claim Victory in Your Holy Name. Lord be with our Visitors as You have said that whoever calls on Your Name Lord shall be saved. Lord today we look to Your eminent return let us all be prepared by forgiving others as You have forgiven us of our trespasses. Lord we pray with confidence that in You Lord, if we ask anything according to Your Will, You will hear us, and we know that You are faithful and that You will never leave us nor forsake us. We pray this in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

SATURDAY May 22, 2021

MORNING:

Topic: Who can we depend on?  Which of these?  A) Ourselves, b) our employer, c) our parents, d) the government, or the Providence of our Lord?

Text:  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:17 NKJV

Commentary:  Self-reliance is probably the inherent choice of mankind as we were born with a survivalist instinct. Even when a newborn baby cries it is crying because of fear and this reflects the need for cuddling.  Our survivalist instinct leads us to excel in learning and a spirit of developing skills that lead us to a form of entrepreneuring or inventing. Or to put it less formal we would say improvising.

Just like the early days of man, they tried to ‘reinvent’ the order of God by trying to build a tower to heaven, (The Tower of Babel). Probably the least of all choices would be government.  ‘Free-Market’ system is the proof of our number one choice, why? Success never came to any countries that were under a totalitarian economy. In fact, bustling economies have been turned from prosperity to poverty by curtailing free-markets, and once depressed economies turned into burgeoning vibrant marketplaces as democracy thrives.

The number one answer should be ‘The Providence of God’ and this should be by trusting our Lord, not just for earthly needs but for our future by serving Him to bring others to Him. Why? Because His two greatest commandments are: 1) to have no other God and to…

 Luke 10:27

So, he answered and said, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’”

The uniqueness of God is even reflected in His Creation, the electron, the hydrogen atoms, and the molecules forming the snowflakes make every snowflake unique. No two are alike in the billions ever made in history proven by Quantum physic.

But with 7 Billion people on planet earth, you too are unique, but God knows each of us individually. 

Principle: No one has ever seen God, except the Son… Jesus Son of God in the second Trinity is Supreme and Eternal.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

John 15: Love and Joy Perfected

9 “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. 10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.

11 “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. 12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.

EVENING:

John 15:  16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. 17 These things I command you, that you love one another.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Psalm 55:22

New King James Version (NKJV)

22 Cast your burden on the Lord,

And He shall sustain you.

He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.

Conclusion: Today as we end the day, we reflect on free enterprise system still blessed by the freedom of worship and the freedom of speech.  Our daily devotion written more like a blog stimulates the mind and addresses issues in our society, but one sure thing that we proclaim is the Gospel of our Lord Jesus.

So tonight, we lift our Lord on High, we Praise Him and we give Him first place and He is Pre-Eminent and is above all powers and for we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weakness, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.  (Hebrews 4: 15-14)

Prayer:  Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord tonight as we declare our confidence that You who begun a good work in each of us, You will complete it until that day Lord, the Day when we shall see You as You are… Our Messiah, our Sovereign eternal God, Lord bless our visitors and grants us all Your peace and Your Favors as we thank You Lord for Your Divine Redemption, In Your precious Name Lord Jesus we pray, and to You is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

FRIDAY May 21, 2021 

 

MORNING: 

TOPIC: “Jesus wept”, the shortest verse in the entire Bible… 

TEXT: John 11: 1-45 (Read for more insight)  
Commentary: The event of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead took place after Jesus ‘escaped’ from Jerusalem from the Pharisees that attempted to stone Him.  We read of how Jesus returned to Jerusalem and how He raised Lazarus from the dead, and how the Jews marveled and believed, and some went to the Pharisees reporting of this miraculous event. 

In every instances of man’s attempt to persecute Jesus The Christ, God His Father made a way for men to see the Supremacy of God. At the Crucifixion, the same was done as Christ was Glorified before men, considering the Sun went dark for 3 hours. This has been verified by astronomer that on that date in history there was an eclipse of the Sun.  This eclipse lasted three hours marking the most monumental history of mankind. 

 

The miracle of all miracles was the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead. He spent 40 days with His disciples and was seen by thousands. We wrote about ‘Do we ever die’? And the question is answered by God in Genesis 1:26 

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” 

Genesis 1:25-27 (in Context) Genesis 1 (Whole Chapter) 

When God said…  “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness”. We need to know that God never dies, so being in His likeness we are created to live forever. While our earthly body referred to as the ‘tent’ our Soul will live forever. 

[Awaiting the New Body] For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. 

 

The Bible made mention of the immortality of our life… Hebrews 9:27 Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, Hebrews 9:26-28  

 

The text above said…’destined to die once, and after that to face judgment’.   The fact is, if after we die, we will face judgment, then we really never die.  So, the scripture said, it is appointed unto to man once to die and we will face ‘Judgment’ The verdict of this ‘Judgment’ is ‘Guilty as charged’ because we are all sinners, and God’s judgment will be against our sins.   

But there is Good News… While we are ‘Guilty’, we have been ‘Bonded’ out of Death-Row’ by Jesus who by His Blood paid the price of our Sins. 

Romans 8: 1-2 confirmed Jesus’ Redemption…  

Life Through the Spirit 

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

 

EVENING: 

What a Priceless Gift given to us by our Lord Jesus?  Romans 8:16-17 New International Version (NIV) 

16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. 

 

Philippians 1:21  For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. 

 

Today you can have Victory in Christ… 2 Corinthians 2:14 New International Version (NIV) 

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. 

 

His Promise:  He said… call on Him in faith, not in fear; Hebrews 4:15-16 New International Version (NIV) 

 

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. 

 

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus as our Mediator and our Sovereign Eternal God in One of the Father in Your Holy Trinity, we come as You said no one comes to the Father unless through You. Lord, we thank You for this privilege and we are assured by Your Grace that through Your Redemption at Calvary we look to that day Lord when we shall see You as You are. Lord, we praise You and adore You and we thank You for Your Unconditional Love and we thank You that you are our High Priest who knows our weakness, but You Lord are without sin, so we come boldly to You  knowing that You have Paid-It-All and by Your mercy we know Your Providence is at hand for our needs. Lord, we thank You for our Visitors and we seek Your blessings on all, we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to you is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Thoughts for the Day:    He will let your Light rise in darkness…

TEXT:  Isaiah 58:10-12 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
And your darkness shall be as the noonday.

 

Good News:  Philippians 3:  20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.

 

Commentary:   Being aware that I am a sinner is not enough I cannot be a good person by works.  Our conviction cannot save us; it is like being found guilty of a crime, but you have not confessed to it. What is the difference here? Being guilty under the law and not admitting this by oneself, the ‘crime’ is still contained in your mind with the capacity of repeating this is always there, because you felt that you have not done any wrong.

 

To be ‘Pardoned’ one must admit guilt with remorse or being pardoned because you did not commit the crime in the first place. Now if one is ‘falsely’ accused and convicted then they deserve to be granted a pardon. But the guilty person that really committed the offence is really not pardoned in a court of law, his sentence is commuted or set-aside, but in the eyes of the law he is still an offender.

 

In Christ we have a ‘Full-Pardon’ not a set-aside’ of our offences, because Jesus said, our Sins are forgiven and are removed like the East from the West meaning, it is ‘Forgotten’ Why should we forget our sin? Because Jesus forgets them after we come to Him.

The devil wants us to remember them and imprints in our mind the temptation that lurks in the background, in the ‘Background’ we should only retain the knowledge that “I am now a Child of God’ and I am now ‘Elevated’ above the things that give temporary fulfillment, as I now have the everlasting JOY in Jesus my Redeemer, because He prepared the ultimate place that I am on my journey at this very moment….knowing that He is the Author and Finisher of my Faith, and that I shall see Him as he is as Jesus who was before Abraham is still the same yesterday, today as He has prepared a place for me… Apply this in your life and have Victory in Jesus our Risen Lord who Reigns Supreme and He is Eternal and He is Faithful.

  1. Pray for Mercy: The gospel should change our life, by opening up:   A New attitude by imitating Jesus…   A better person to progress in Christ…  To grow in Christ…to imitate Christ…  do not brag about our own attainment strain forward to what lies ahead  Do not look back to past negative experiences look forward to the future in Christ.  To be a bold but yet be a humble person simultaneously  Rejoice in the Lord.
  2.  How Paul found joy in the Faith  Philippians 3:13 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,
  3. The gospel Provides the hope in Christ Be patient and determined to receive his holy spirit Be compassionate to all Be truthful and loving The main goal is the future in Christ
  4. Goals: Paul was a practicing Pharisee, but he came to Christ as Christ chose him to be His vessel Ignore the call to be known let the principle of  'I shall decrease,  and He must increase in life' prevail that I might know Jesus and proclaim Him to all.

Philippians 3:12 New King James Version (NKJV) Pressing Toward the Goal

12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.

We are to attain a closer walk with Christ by giving him first place in my life:
By focusing on what I can do for His Glory and let Him work in me for His glory being the righteousness of God. To focus on him and. Grow in him;
‘Focus on Jesus not on myself’

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

Ephesians 2: 8-9 is by His Grace…For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord thank You for Your Grace, Your Divine Redemption, and Your Unconditional love.  Lord, we praise You and give You first place in all as we yield to You and seek a closer walk with You. Jesus Messiah, we thank You for being our Intercessor as we are presented to the Father by Your Righteousness and by Your Blood of Atonement we are saved.  We pray in Your Holy Name and to You is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

TOPIC: What will you do with the increases in your possessions?

Commentary

Are you a good custodian? can you be trusted?  A Custodian of what? Money, Your Faith, Your Freedom? The Providence of our Lord?

One of the most prized gifts that one could receive is what? Guess what, it isn’t money, it isn’t the big house or the big car, it is the Grace of God. The freedom from Sin is the most prized of all gifts…  This is confirmed in  the scripture text of:

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

Considering the ultimate Gift being Life-Everlasting, therefore make every provision to guard this prize knowing…our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior the Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians 3: 20 NKJV

Our Lord died once and was raised from the dead, He rose triumphantly, ascended to heaven, and sits on the throne of Righteousness. Just as when you come to Christ and receive Him, you received His Grace, His Grace is ‘Forever’ when you faithfully, Sincerely,  confess your sins and ask His to be Lord of your life; you will be forgiven and knowing Jesus you are now counted among the living.  Yet we are still sinners, but now under His Grace. Read Romans 6:15-23

Principle:

Live by His precepts as He said… Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6: 33 NKJV

Romans 5 Good News Translation (GNT)

Right with God

5 Now that we have been put right with God through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 He has brought us by faith into this experience of God's grace, in which we now live. And so, we boast of the hope we have of sharing God's glory! 3 We also boast of our troubles, because we know that trouble produces endurance, 4 endurance brings God's approval, and his approval creates hope. 5 This hope does not disappoint us, for God has poured out his love into our hearts by means of the Holy Spirit, who is God's gift to us.

6 For when we were still helpless, Christ died for the wicked at the time that God chose. 7 It is a difficult thing for someone to die for a righteous person. It may even be that someone might dare to die for a good person. 8 But God has shown us how much he loves us—it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us! 9 By his blood we are now put right with God; how much more, then, will we be saved by him from God's anger! 10 We were God's enemies, but he made us his friends through the death of his Son. Now that we are God's friends, how much more will we be saved by Christ's life! 11 But that is not all; we rejoice because of what God has done through our Lord Jesus Christ, who has now made us God's friends.

Adam and Christ

12 Sin came into the world through one man, and his sin brought death with it. As a result, death has spread to the whole human race because everyone has sinned. 13 There was sin in the world before the Law was given; but where there is no law, no account is kept of sins. 14 But from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, death ruled over all human beings, even over those who did not sin in the same way that Adam did when he disobeyed God's command.

Adam was a figure of the one who was to come. 15 But the two are not the same, because God's free gift is not like Adam's sin. It is true that many people died because of the sin of that one man. But God's grace is much greater, and so is his free gift to so many people through the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ. 16 And there is a difference between God's gift and the sin of one man. After the one sin, came the judgment of “Guilty”; but after so many sins, comes the undeserved gift of “Not guilty!” 17 It is true that through the sin of one-man death began to rule because of that one man. But how much greater is the result of what was done by the one man, Jesus Christ! All who receive God's abundant grace and are freely put right with him will rule in life through Christ.

18 So then, as the one sin condemned all people, in the same way the one righteous act sets all people free and gives them life. 19 And just as all people were made sinners as the result of the disobedience of one man, in the same way they will all be put right with God as the result of the obedience of the one man.

20 Law was introduced in order to increase wrongdoing; but where sin increased, God's grace increased much more. 21 So then, just as sin ruled by means of death, so also God's grace rules by means of righteousness, leading us to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord today as we go in faith trusting You and thanking You for Your Divine Grace Your Unconditional Love and Your Gift of Redemption. Lord be with our Visitors and grant each Your favors as we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

TUESDAY May 18, 2021

Note this…      We are all ‘displaced’ even a ‘True-Native’ is a foreigner, why? Being expelled from Eden…

Yesterday the semi-holiday was Columbus Day, this is a day that is supposed to celebrate Columbus discovery of the new world.  Discovery is defined… the act of finding or learning something for the first time: the act of discovering something. 

Columbus discovery was meant that he himself learned something new, he did not discover the land called America. He discovered that people already existed here before he came.

To say I have discovered gold is not a discovery, it is a finding.  So, in fact Columbus ‘Found’ that in 1492 his boat could have made it to the western hemisphere, he also met early settlers that were here before him. I wonder if Columbus asked the question of how did the settlers found the country and where were they from?

So, we declare Columbus Day a day of discovery of a country where someone else already found it and inhabited it.

Today we are all ‘Foreigners’ in a land farm from the ‘Home’ that God gave our fore-parents.  Eden the prefect place from which Adam and Eve were evicted. It was closed and hidden from sight. One day the new Eden will be revealed, and the Lord will declare this to be His Kingdom.

Are you going there? Ask yourself this.  On earth we have exclusive membership communities.  Heaven is also an ‘Exclusive’ membership place. But you do not have to be recommend by another member, or be sponsored by anyone. Your financial standing or other qualifications are not needed, just come as you are and become a ‘Joint-Heir’ to the Lord’s Kingdom.

There are Jesus’ invitation, and His Assurance of you coming into His Kingdom…

His Invitation: Philippians 3:14 [Full Chapter]

I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

His Assurance:

Philippians 3:20-21

For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,

In Context | Full Chapter 

Verse 20-21:  20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.

Good News: 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. 1 John 4: 3

TEXT: 1 Peter 1:7

New King James Version (NKJV)

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

Come to our Lord Jesus and asked to be Saved by His Grace, Confess that you are a Sinner, as we are all sinners, 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. Read the Bible, gather the key principles of Jesus’ teaching, read, the Gospels, and if you need help call or write us and we will send you material that can help you with your walk; and growing in strength and victory in Christ Jesus.

Prayer:          Father in Heaven, in Jesus our Redeemer we come in Your Holy presence. We lift you up before all. Thank You Lord for opening the doors to bring hundreds of people to visit this site; Lord we are privileged to be Your messenger and Lord Jesus open our minds and grant us wisdom and let our readers grasp the Good News of Your Salvation.

MONDAY May 17, 2021

 Our journey through life… what does it take to have a fulfilled life? As said.

THE ONE WHO DIES WITH THE MOST TOYS WINS!

This bumper sticker appeared on the rear of an expensive European sports car. It seemed to be a perfect expression of how our culture values the acquisition of wealth and all the "toys" that wealth could buy.

Today’s discussion is not about wealth, it is about our Soul… As Jesus said,  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?

Answer without your soul while gaining the world will be a futile useless achievement, and there is not anything that we can give in exchange for our soul, so, either way it is a moot point.

The fact is… Jesus said: John 3:  Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

What is the use dying with the ‘most-toys’? fact is he is dead and do not need any of these toys.

Our life is a sojourn through our time here on earth. Just like Moses at age of 120 he was reaching the end of his journey, as God said to him that he will not enter the promised land. But Moses was taken to heaven, as we see that He and Elijah were present speaking with Christ at the Transfiguration of Jesus.

Matthew 17

Jesus Transfigured on the Mount

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

In Context | Full Chapter | 

You and I may not have the earth-shattering experience of leading millions of people like Moses, but Hod is His Infinite power has made us Saints…

1 Corinthians 6

Do Not Sue the Brethren

6 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints? Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life? If then you have [a]judgments concerning things pertaining to this life, do you appoint those who are least esteemed by the church to judge? I say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you, not even one, who will be able to judge between his brethren? But brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers!

15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! 16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” 17 But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.

Today we can make the right choice as said… Colossians 3:24

knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.

Prayer:

Lord it is a privilege to serve, and it is by Your grace that we prevail, Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Divine Providence as we start this new week. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore…Amen.

SUNDAY May 16, 2021

Bring your Bible to church, it is your familiar weapon of choice.

Practice becomes perfect… orchestras spend hours practicing.

Why is your doctor referred to a medical practitioner?

Are doctors practicing or are they trained?

The difference of being a MD versus a PhD,  both are doctors, but you would not go to a PhD to get medical treatment.

Your Bible is your textbook, it contains the teaching from the almighty, God’s commandments and it outlines the rewards and the penalty that He will hand out.

Knowing your Bible and where to find answers is essential as a child once said in Bible study, ‘Only God could write a book like this’

Bringing you own Bible is like taking your own gun to the range.

Hebrews 4:12

For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints, and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

Principle: Romans 8: 28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

To willfully sin, we will read below, that there will be no more Sacrifice for us, and the consequences are also written below.

Hebrews 10:25-27  (NASB)

25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.

Christ or Judgment

26 For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins

27 but a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries.

The Bible also tells us… That our God is a God of Consuming Fire:

Hebrews 12:28-29   (NASB)

28 Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; 29 for our God is a consuming fire.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Even though we are Sinners, our Lord came and through His Redemption we can have Victory, and in Him our Victory is forevermore…

Romans 8 (NASB)

Deliverance from Bondage

8 Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, 

And: Romans 8: 37 Our Lord made us more than Conquerors…

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

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus today we Praise You for Your Graciousness and to You Lord we look forward to that day when we shall see You Lord. Lord thank You for Your assurance that those in You Lord will not see condemnation as You have condemned sin in the flesh, Lord in humility we recognize that you who knew no sin bore our sins and substituted Yourself for us so that we could be saved by your Blood. 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.

SATURDAY May 15, 2021

Coping with the anxieties of this world, today we have a HERO… and our Hero is our Sovereign God.

The Supremacy of God… a forgotten fact among many today since the beginning of history humans all over the world have sought to achieve greatness on their own. In recent times, we have seen the tyrants of the world, the exploiters of their own, and the persecutors of others and especially against Christians in certain parts of the world.

As the age of information came, so did the rise of the anxiety meter of most individuals, we are bombarded with news and reports of violence and constant conflicts among nations and an array of world events that are making the “Days of Noah” appear to be more like a simpler time… really? No, the human traits have not changed only more amplified and expanded to a greater extent.

All of what we read, see, and hear of the conflicts and events are all ‘Self-inflicted’ why? if we were to turn from all our wicked ways and come to God and adopt His teaching and apply it to our neighbors, then there would be brotherly love and peace would prevail among all, then why not just do this, and let us experience peace? This is a tall order and almost impossible to achieve on our own. Remember the event of Cain & Abel, the first recorded murder?

Can we ever achieve real harmony? If the answer is no, then there is virtually no hope for a peaceful life, but we can attain real harmony, but can it be sustained? Yes and no, please do not be confused by this paradox of yes and no.  No because all events are subject to the interference of the devil that intervenes, and Yes, we can have harmony, if we have the armor of God to protect us from such interferences of the evil one.  

In life we can choose to be the victor or the victim, and the choice to this is simple, we all would choose to be ‘Victors’ It is amazing why more of us are not choosing to be victors and continuing to allow ourselves to face the lack of Harmony in our life. 

The apostle Paul wrote, "Being confident of this, that He (God) who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus" (Philippians 1:6). 

By HIS New Covenant, as Jesus was dying on the Cross of Calvary where His Blood was shed for our Atonement, He said…” It is Finished” The Bible said, the Veil of the Temple was torn, this was the Revelation of the New Covenant, at that very moment we passed from the “LAW” to ‘GRACE” as He granted HIS Grace.

  • The Veil is Removed
  • Our Lord is no longer ‘Hidden.’
  • He is Sovereign, HE is Supreme
  • He Redeemed us and He Paid-it-all
  • And ONLY Through Jesus we can have a future life in a place of Splendor.

Jesus our Divine Eternal God Came, Died, Rose and Ascended and sits on the Throne of Righteousness and HE is our Advocate.

We also need to know that Jesus is not just ‘His Son’… He is God in one as you read in:

John 1, Hebrews 1, and Colossians 1

Jesus is the Anointed Son, we were taught in Sunday’s school that Jesus is the Son of God, then even right now. He spoke to us using Metaphor or narrated His message using simple analogy to convey the scope of His thinking to us whom He created.

In the Bible there are many Parables and description of His Messages, example, the Vine and the Branches, The Lamb of God, and many others, but one of His most profound statements made publicly was when Jesus said in His Kingdom there are many Mansion, and: “IF” He go and prepare a place for “YOU” He will come and get you so that where He is You can also be… This is oftentimes taken as a ‘Security-Blanket’ and this is to be translated by the Context of “IF & “YOU”, why, because His statement was a conditional statement with a Caveat that IF You received Him and trusted in Faith, He would go and YOU would be a Beneficiary, on the flip side if you did not believe then He was not going on your behalf.  We need to know that we cannot go to God unless through Jesus, why” because He is the Gatekeeper, and He is our Advocate (for those that know him). So, if we do not know Him or turned away like the tribe of Judah when they were taken captive, the worshipped Idols, anything, person or whatsoever other that Jesus is consider above Jesus Christ, will be considered as idols.

The Bible teaches that when we receive Him (Jesus Christ) we are saved, and we will never be lost.

 2 Timothy 1:7

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

Prayer: Lord Jesus thank You for being our Mediator, our Redeemer and as God in One with the Father. Today, we Praise You and seek Your Divine blessings on our Visitors and us all. To You Lord Jesus is the power and the glory now and forevermore… Amen.

FRIDAY May 14, 2021

God’s Providence is on display… find it and receive your share…

The Providence of the Lord is on display, it is not in showrooms like a new car, or on shelves like in the food stores. But it can be seen all around.

Sometimes you may wonder about the person driving the shiny new sport car and living in a mansion, and yet, he has a reputation of being an unscrupulous businessman.

Do not envy that person, because his comfort in his ill-begotten wealth is only temporary.

Proverbs 22:1

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better

than silver or gold.

We all know the plight of Job who lost his family, his wealth and even his health, yet, in his plight, he said…

Job 19:25

I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth.

Job 10:12

You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit.

Commentary

Remember, when we suffer losses because of being plundered, the Lord replaces your losses with an abundant helping of His glorious providence.

This is the Grace of God…

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

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

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

Therefore, being redeemed by the Blood…

Romans 3:25

whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His

forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed,

Romans 5:9

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

Remember, we are being Saved from the wrath of God through Jesus Christ.

Colossians 1:20

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

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

His Faithfulness and His Eternal Promise…

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.

So, whatever situation that you may be facing, remember to…

1 Thessalonians 5:18 [Full Chapter]

give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Corinthians 15:57

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

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your loving kindness and by Jesus our Redeemer we are privileged to come into Your Holy Presence. Lord bless our Visitors and Lord let this endeavor spread life a wildfire proclaiming You as Lord of lords as we pray in Your Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory now and forever…Amen.

THURSDAY May 13, 2021

My Wish List…The Source(s) And why should I receive my desires. Because the Lord is my Source, and He is Faithful.

Fact: He knows my needs even before I think of it…

The difference of ‘Needs’ versus ‘Wants’  In filling up your car for a journey of 150 miles, all you need is about a full tank of gas, you may want more, but the tank’s capacity can only hold what it will take. Today’s new cars we are told not to top off the filling.  Why? there is a need to have some room for the Vapor to escape, so that there will be no ‘Vapor-lock’ that sends you a ‘Check engine’ light.

In life our capacity is much like the tank of the vehicle.  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.

Reading of a corporate executive that became successful, he purchased a corporate jet, and while flying his friends on a leisurely Sunday afternoon they crashed. Maybe his needs were over-powered by his ‘Wants’ but he needed was a professional pilot to handle flying. In context, we are saying… God will give us what we can handle.

We wrote about the couple that were faith church-goers, 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 read 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.

 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

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 

Going to the Lord…

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

WEDNESDAY May 12, 2021

Who is in charge? When the government of China demands that all churches be registered and be regulated by government policies, are they trying to preempt the gospel?

Missionaries are still officially forbidden in China, and proselytizing is technically illegal. Nonetheless, more Christian activists are entering China openly. By some estimates, 10,000 foreign Christian workers now live in the country, more than half of them Americans.

We need to be reminded that…

Matthew 28:16-20

New International Version

The Great Commission

16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 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.”

Jesus said He would be with you always to the very end of the age.

For countries that are against Christianity, what Amos did over 2,700 years ago, he was rejected and the consequences of suppression took place.  No country is immune to the warning of God, here’s Amos’ warning…

A Brief Bio of Amos:  Amos was a contemporary of Hosea and Jonah. He lived in the town of Judah, close to Bethlehem and about 11 miles from Jerusalem. His writing is dated around 760-750 BC. This makes his statement below approximately 2,760 years in history. We read of the coming ‘Famine” of not a famine of food, but a famine of the words of the Lord.

The news item below is like a trickle that turns into a tidal wave and eventually a Tsunami, just like a ‘Spark’ that kindles into a forest fire, so will the suppression of the Gospel and the word of God be targeted.

Text:  Amos 8: 11
11 
“The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign Lord,
  “when I will send a famine through the land—
not a famine of food or a thirst for water,
    but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord. 
12 People will stagger from sea to sea
    and wander from north to east,
searching for the word of the Lord,
    but they will not find it.

This is how they reacted to Amos…

Amos 7: 12-15

12 Then Amaziah said to Amos, “Get out, you seer! Go back to the land of Judah. Earn your bread there and do your prophesying there. 13 Don’t prophesy anymore at Bethel, because this is the king’s sanctuary and the temple of the kingdom.”

14 Amos answered Amaziah, “I was neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, but I was a shepherd, and I also took care of sycamore-fig trees. 15 But the Lord took me from tending the flock and said to me, ‘Go, prophesy to my people Israel.’ 

Commentary:

Human philosophy tries to answer questions as: “How did man develop into what he is at present? Or: “How did social conditions develop into their present state?” God’s word gives us the true answers. The present condition of the world system finds its real explanation in the corruption of human nature.

If man could be transformed back into a “Good” being, evil would cease to exist. But this is what the Bible said…Matthew 15:18
But the things that proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and those defile the man.

His Promise:  Our Lord said there will be wars, and rumors of wars, nation will rise up against each other. Knowledge will increase, and people will be moving to and from… Historically we had wars in Syria, and today we have a civil war in this same place, why because of the one factor… Mankind, really nothing has changed as the behavior of the human race continues with the principle of an inherent factor… Sin

His Faithfulness: God loves us all, regardless of our background, and this is the Good News to all, Jesus came to save Sinners, and regardless of us being: a Moslem, an Atheist, Jewish of a non-believer, Christ died for the sins of all, you may notice that Christian was not among the mix, why we are called Christians only after one has come to the Lord, being born in a so-called Christian society do not make one a Christian. 

Prayer:

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

TUESDAY May 11, 2021

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

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


Matthew 2:8 

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

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

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

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

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

18. “A voice is heard in Ramah,

weeping and great mourning,

Rachel weeping for her children,

and refusing to be comforted,

because they are no more.”

We affirm that...

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

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

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

Here’s why Jesus came…

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

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

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

Romans 8: 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose

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

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

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

Prayer:

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

Monday May 10, 2021

Beginning this week… Let us turn to the Lord and ask that His Divine providence be upon us. What is ‘Providence’, the protective care of God as a spiritual power. "we place our trust in divine providence to be a source of comfort."

Let it be clear: The Holy Spirit descended at the day of Pentecost, this His ‘Comforter’ indwelling is us. Because of His Indwelling Holy Spirit, there is no one-on-one prayers, as Jesus is always present, as said… Matthew 18:20

For where two or three are gathered in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

So, ending your prayer abruptly by said ‘In Jesus Name we pray, let us ne reminded that He is in our midst, so, do not address the Lord as a ‘Third-party’, because He is already present, so, address Him by saying. IN-Your Name we Pray.

The Power of Prayer… Prayer is the source of Power given to us by our Lord to seek HIM.

Matthew 6: 7-8

Jesus taught us how to pray.

7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Are you facing a Giant today, Our Lord can make a way for you to overcome it and be victorious... Praise our Lord Jesus because He is forever Faithful.

Philippians 4: 19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. We need to focus on the positive more and still remember the negative results of sins.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-5 NIV. 

Principle:  Humbleness and Meekness shall triumph over pride and the boastful ones will be debased.  Pride debases those that boast and put their trust in money and earthly things…. Correct Living is rooted in Christ    Pride displaces God from the heart in favor of Self.

Hebrews 10:23 (NIV) 

23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
Let us not judge others and remembering that forgiveness is the first step towards building a relationship among each other.  To be less self-centered and Christ Centered 

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus today as we are gathered in Your Holy Presence, you said You are in our midst… Lord let Your presence be felt.  Lord Jesus, we give You the Glory as we seek Your blessings on us all, bless our visitors as we thank You for the privilege of serving You. We commit all to You, and Pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

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.

Saturday May 8th,2021

          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

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,

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.

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.

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.
