DAILY DEVOTIONALS


Thursday: July 16, 2020

Do not let the devil rob and steal you of God’s love, God’s providence, and God’s Abundance.

What can the devil rob you of? Nothing, because… unless you give him permission, he cannot enter your mind, enter your territory nor infringe on you…

Ephesians 4:27

and do not give the devil a foothold.

Looking at the difference of Fate Vs Faith, as someone said, “Your worries end when you go in Faith”.

Jesus said we are to bring His Good News to the ends of the earth.  He also told His disciples to go, take nothing.  He said all their needs would be taken care of in each town.  He also said if they did not receive you leave and shake the very dust off your feet.

The Lord never told anyone to build monumental cathedrals, expansive campus, and to create a ‘Brand’ of religion. Jesus never taught ‘Religion’ He taught Love and Redemption through our Faith in Him.  All that Jesus asked in His final message in Revelation is to ‘Repent’ and He said that all those that believe and remain faithful will receive ‘The Crown of Life’

In the quest for success or fame many are going out using His name sending the message of prosperity. If we make our mission focused of gaining wealth and ritualistically ‘Giving to Get” this is not giving because of ‘Love’ it is just a trade-off for personal gain.

So, let us answer the question…Is God keeping us waiting? No, He wants each of us to prepare to meet Him. And His message of preparation is…

Revelation 3: 5-6 New King James Version (NKJV)

5 He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.

6 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Here is the message from Jesus through John in Revelation 3: 19-21

 

While these passages are written to the seven churches, they are also addressed to us individually as we are the church. The church is a building made up of us all going in Faith in the Body of Christ…

Jesus said…

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore, be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”’

As you undergo His-Chastening’ remember it is by His ‘Love’ that He rebukes and chasten, He said be Zealous (Faithful) and ‘repent’

Our comment regarding the unimaginable ‘Coronation of the King of kings, our Lord Jesus’…

Revelation 5: 11-13 (NKJV)

11 Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands,

12 saying with a loud voice:

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain

To receive power and riches and wisdom,

And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”

And to the Lamb, forever and ever!”

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

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

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

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

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

A Vaccine is administered by an injection, or oral intake.  It is usually given by a non-elective protocol, meaning the vaccine is administered not because you desired it, or if you elect not to take it. Because for health reason it is necessary to take it.

With Sin, we also have a non-elective or elective option.  A sinner is not mandated to seek a cure or seek forgiveness by repenting. Nor is it something that is imposed upon the person that sinned. But guilt and remorse can cause one to seek forgiveness.

Only God through His Son Jesus can forgive Sin. No one else. You can get a sentence commuted or be given parole, or even be pardoned for a crime. But the real forgiveness is from God.


Matthew 26:28

This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 13:38

“Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you.

Acts 26:18

to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

Ephesians 1:7

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace

Colossians 1:14

in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations

Hebrews 9:22

In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

1 John 1:5

Light and Darkness, Sin and Forgiveness] This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

His Faithfulness:

Creation is His painting with the beauty and wonder of it all
What kind of God would God be if he did not communicate with us?
So God speaks through His Word; the Word is Christ
God's enjoyment of what He was doing in creating the heavens & the earth. And us he said it was Good
God really made it all for man because He loved us
His great design was by intelligent design
The Christian doctrine of creation is that God made this all for us, as He gave us dominion over everything
We fail to appreciate his creation as He made it all for us, so thank Him for the majesty of His marvelous creation
We are privileged of being made in His likeness,

Principle: God delights in his creation
God placed us here to enjoy the worship of him and the intimacy of his love for us…

Prayer:

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

Tuesday: July 14, 2020

            How did the Coronavirus spread throughout the world? Did sin spread like a Virus?

Yes, Sin did spread at a similar speed not as a virus, but by the inherent nature of sin in us.

But by the Grace of Jesus, we have the deterrent to the nature of Sin. And by His Blood we have His Redemption.

In Christ we are a new creation…

2 Corinthians 5:17

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

Galatians 6:11

Not Circumcision but the New Creation] See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!

Galatians 6:15

Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation.

Revelation 1:1-20 ESV

The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near. John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood ...

1 John 2:28 ESV

And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he appears, we may have confidence and not shrink from him in shame at his coming.

1 John 1:9 ESV

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

Hebrews 12:3 ESV

Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.

Hebrews 12:1-29 

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted. In your struggle against sin you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? “My son does not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. ...

Hebrews 10:24-25 ESV

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

Philippians 4:6-7 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:4-5 ESV

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—

Prayer:

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

Monday: July 13, 2020

            Is time fleeting by? In 120 days, we will be hearing Christmas carols…

It will be a good thing to hear as it is a time of Joy.
Christmas in July is celebrated in Ten States of the USA.

There are several important days in the lives of mankind…

The Advent of Christ = Christmas

The Crucifixion of Christ = Dying for our Sins

The Resurrection of Christ= Easter

And the most important of all will be His Return.

The Date for His Return is not yet known, but there are many clues and the following states clearly of His return. 

Matthew 24:30-32 New King James Version (NKJV)

30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His [a]elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

The Parable of the Fig Tree

32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.

2 Peter 3:10

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

But above this God provided a way for you to be saved. Saved from what? the Wrath of God, why? Because as the Bible said…

Romans 3:10

As it is written: “There is none  righteous, no, not one; In Context 

Only by the Righteousness of Christ, by His Redeeming Blood, we are made righteous.

And because of His Grace, we will not be judged, and His Word said…

Romans 8:1

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

Many of our readers may say we are not writing anything new, as we already know this. But, for many these facts are new and sharing the Love of Christ and His Divine Grace is a privilege to be made known.  And, even if you already know that in Christ there’s salvation by His redemption and the assurance of being free from condemnation, it is a good re-assurance to reaffirm our faith in Him.

Father in Heaven, Lord Jesus we come and by Your Divine and Holy Presence in our midst, we come and give You or Praises. Lord bless our Visitors and we all go in Faith knowing that all thing works together for the Good of those who loves You. Lord we reaffirm our love by adoration and thank you for Your Divine Redemption as we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday: July 12, 2020

            The Bible is not a ‘History Book’ it foretells the future, and it also reveals God’s secrets.

The Bible is all about Jesus, while it may contain multiple books written by known and unknown authors, we are amazed by its accuracy. Yet it chronicled all the conflicts and the triumph of God’s people.

One could say that God has a great ‘Sense of Humor’ as seen in the book of Ester, Haman who planned to impale Mordecai, Haman himself was impaled.

The hatred by Haman of the Jews was the detriment of Haman, as God made it possible for the Jews to triumph…


Esther 8:15

The Triumph of the Jews] When Mordecai left the king’s presence, he was wearing royal garments of blue and white, a large crown of gold and a purple robe of fine linen. And the city of Susa held a celebration.

We also would like to say that the Bible is not a yellow page of where we go shopping…

Image result for image of yellow pagesThe BIBLE is not the Yellow Page… it is the Word of God.

To look up what you conveniently want to use, today we have the On-line Bible, and what we search for is not as like going shopping. God’s Word is intended to guide us, inform us, assures us and to point to His Redemption.

While we may find many chapters, verses of comfort, but we will also receive His warning and His description of God’s Wrath, and God’s Divine Redemption.

Prayers… God wants to grant us our desires, but He wants us to ‘Ask’ why? Because He is sovereign and as we read, when the Commander of God’s army came to Joshua, He replied ‘Neither’, when Joshua asked whose side, He was on… Why? Because He is not our servant, He is sovereign. Therefore, we must ask, while He knows what we have need of even before we ask… And by asking, we are recognizing that He is the ‘grantor’ as without Him we can do nothing.

As it is said in…

Romans 11:33-36 New King James Version (NKJV)

33 Oh, the depth of the riches both 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 beglory forever. Amen.

  • The Bible is not a Yellow Page: This is the only book that we know that GOD Wrote
  • The Sermon on the Mount:
  • This is when Jesus gave His Inauguration Speech, which is popularly known as the Beatitude, Jesus was saying let these “Be our Attitude”
  • The Ten Commandments are not Ten Suggestions, they are Sacred, and they are His Commandments
  • The Armor of God: It is not a designer label; it is far greater than any advanced weapons made by man
  • Our Being:  We will live forever, therefore choose where we want to be, after this rat race on earth.
  • Heaven: The Bible described Heaven as a place of Splendor, filled with JOY, It is not a place we can buy a ticket and go… but there is a privileged Pathway’ that leads to Heaven, see below:
  • Private Clubs: There are certain ‘Private Clubs that we cannot just apply and be a member, you have to be invited and be sponsored, and these ‘Private-Clubs’ are exclusive, costly and you are reviewed each year for eligibility to maintain your good standing.  With our Lord, His Salvation is ‘Forever’ in a place of Splendor.
  • Forgiveness:  this is a Pre-Requisite of coming to our Lord…. In His Prayer, which we know as “the Lord’s Prayer” We ask our Lord for His Forgiveness and we say, “As we forgive those that trespass against us” Therefore, if we are carrying around any grudge, or misdeeds received or given we must first go and absolve ourselves of this by giving forgiveness.  Forgiveness is not always a ‘two-way’ action, you may forgive the person but they still may not want to talk to you, but in the eyes of our Lord you are in the clear, as you have forgiven that person.                    
  • The Pathway: Is a dimension that was revealed to mankind when Jesus ascended into Heaven…
  • The question is: How can we be eligible to have access to the Pathway? Just come to Jesus as you are, He will receive you as you are, and.
  • Here is the Answer:  just say Lord Jesus I love You, and I want to have an Intimate relationship with You my Lord, and I confess my sins and accept your Divine forgiveness. I give You my all and seek Your Holy Spirit to fill my life with Hope in Your Salvation by Your Redemption as You paid it all at Calvary, Lord lead me to Green Pastures and Still water as in You I am made a Joint Heir in You Jesus, I Pray in Your name Jesus my Eternal God… Amen

Prayer…Lord Jesus we thank You for this day, a day that You have given with Your Grace. We ask Your Divine blessings on our Visitors and us all. To You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

            Know that the battle is the Lord’s and His angels will encamp around you and keep you safe.

2 Chronicles 20:15 In Context

He said: “Listen, King Jehoshaphat and all who live in Judah and Jerusalem! This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.

Battle is mentioned 215 times in the NKJ Bible, and today there are more than 40 active conflicts around the world now. 

When you look at the world map of where these conflicts are raging, Christ is not in the center.

In the western Hemisphere, we have conflicts in Mexico and in Venezuela, and many parts of the Middle East.  But the root cause is from the love of money, power, and driven by crimes against humanity, and more specifically in certain regions of Africa against the followers of Christ.

When God said… “The Battle is not yours, but His” we can only be patient as His Word that vengeance is His.

While the publicized battles on the world go on… the battle on the Homefront, of human trafficking, abduction of children (as there are multiple Amber-Alerts) and violence spawned by evil agendas.  No. God has not forgotten us, through Jesus we were brought the way to Peace, prosperity, and an abundant life.  Here is what God will do when you know Christ… Know that the battle is the Lord’s and His angels will encamp around you and keep you safe.

Psalm 34:7

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

On the Home front… Where is the battlefield? The Election or the Warfront? Which is more intensive?

It seems like the upcoming election for the President and Congress is more intensive than the battlefield of Afghanistan or even Syria.

In the Campaign Blitz by the candidates spending more money in a short time than the cost of the war(s) for the similar duration. Many seeking to stay in office for their 5th term, of which many had little accomplishment to show.

The philosophy of spending massive advertising campaign to run negative article of the challenger rather than showcasing his or her achievements, which was virtually none, this is the methodology of a politician that receives $174,000 in salary that will retire a multi-millionaire. This confirms the adage of politicians, one that receives a low salary plus all the monies they can steal.

Many pastors are among the Super-Rich, but they have earned it through the publishing of Best-Selling books that they wrote. However, along the way during their serving, hopefully they may have reimbursed the church for some of the benefits gained in writing the bestselling book, sharing of the profits. Remembering… Romans 11: 33-36, to realize that all things are...

From Him, by Him and to Him, for the Glory of the Lord,

The credo of knowing that God gets the first fruit must be adhered to, no deviation and no compromise.

God sees us all from the heart and He blesses those that give Him preeminence in their lives.

Prayer: Lord Jesus we come in Faith, as You said Faith can move mountain… and the mountain in our lives are the temptation of this world that is a Broadway to utter darkness illuminated by the eternal flame described by You Lord. Lord because of Your great Salvation of Your Redemption and Your Triumphant Resurrection we can by Your Grace be in Victory in You Lord Jesus. We thank You for our Visitors and pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus as our Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and forevermore… Amen.

                        Our Prayers are heard, so be specific in asking the Lord… Even though He knows our desire, Ask plainly

When the blind man called out to Jesus, Jesus replied…

Blind Bartimaeus Receives His Sight

46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. 47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted even more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”

So, they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.

51 “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.

The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

52 “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

“FAITH” Was the factor, as Jesus said “your faith has healed you”

Today as we make our request known to the Lord, let it be specific, and we must believe that we have received it.

Mark 11:24

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

James 1:6

But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.

Do this…  Partake of His Atoning-Grace…Do this in remembrance of Him.

Luke 22:19

And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In Context | Full Chapter |

Yesterday we spoke of… Jesus is not our ‘Banker’; He is our Savior.  So, let us Parise Him and… Thank Him for:

His Mercies,

  • His Unconditional love
  • His Divine Grace
  • His Redemption
  • His forbearance of our sins, as He knows our needs and overlooked our faults.

Thanks to our Sovereign Lord Jesus as he is One with the Father and for the Holy Spirit as our comforter.

Ending the week in Praises and acknowledging our Lord is not a ritual, but to know that in our lives He our Lord Jesus is Pre-Eminent above all.

Commentary:

What have we accomplished for the first half of 2018? Do we have a positive outlook for the future? We all should as our Lord said:

Isaiah 43:2 (NKJV)

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.

So, what have we accomplished? Or rather by the grace of the Lord… Let us just say it is good to be alive, and it is good to live in a free world.  Christians in Nigeria are praying for believers in the western hemisphere and more particularly the United States and England.  Consider that these Christians in Nigeria are constantly under threat of attack by radical Muslins, called Boko Haram that in the last 2 years killed 1,400 Nigerians, many martyred for Christ.

Here is what we can do to help other, let us pray for the salvation of the people of Boko Haram, al Shabaab in Somalia and al-Qaeda all over the world.  This is what our Lord said... we are to pray for our enemies.

If we did not do anything so far to assure us of a future beyond this world, here is an opportunity…

Jesus said…. Matthew 11:28-29 (NKJV)

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.

Principle:  Romans 10:13 (NKJV)

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

Philippians 4. 4-9

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

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

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

Meditate on These Things

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

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Redeemer we come.  Lord Jesus, Holy Sovereign Messiah, today we Praise You and give You preeminence in our lives. Lord thank You for our Visitors as we ask Your Divine blessing on us all. Lord supply Your providence and especially for those in needs, Your Grace abounds in our lives as we go in Faith. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore... Amen.

            Elisha prayed, and 8,000 Syrian soldiers went blind… We can also pray and 8,000 will be saved…

Yes, we can pray, but the 8,000 to be saved can only be done through a personal relationship with Christ.

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

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

Ezekiel 1: 27-28 NKJV

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

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

1 Corinthians 15:40 In Context | Full Chapter

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

John 8:12

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

Revelation 22:5

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

Commentary:

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

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

The Supremacy of Christ…

Colossians 1:18

And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. In Context | Full Chapter

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

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

John 1 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Eternal Word

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

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

            Do not worry… Let Jesus be in charge when you do the challenge is now mission accomplished.

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

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

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

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

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

Philippians 4:6

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

Psalm 112:7

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

Romans 1:16

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

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

Commentary:    Because God will not tolerate Sin and sinner cannot come into the presence of God.

If sinners cannot come into the presence of God, then are we going to Hell? We will answer this a little further on, but first, murderers and convicted criminals will not see God, what are we saying? If these cannot, how about Liars, Hypocrites, and cheaters who was never convicted of a crime? None will see God, because we are all sinners, even a church pastor or a priest will not see God if they do not know and accepted the Lord. Then what about me who attends church every Sunday, and is considered a good person, I even go on mission trips and serve as a church elder? Unless you are born again you will not see God.  Jesus said all our righteousness is like a filthy rag.

Therefore, Jesus came to Redeem us, and without His Blood of Atonement we are condemned to die… then some may say so that, when I die it is over, so what do I care? This would be an easy way out if when we die it is over. But the Bibles said… ‘It is appointed unto to Man to die and then the Judgment’.  If there is a Judgment, what do I care when I am dead? I can face no further consequences, so what? Guess what? This is not the end. Because we will never die? Then this is good news, yes for those that know our Lord it is, but to the unrepentant sinner, it is bad news; for the Lord said the wages of sin is death, which is not a physical death, but a spiritual death, but the soul lives on in eternity, and the sinner’s soul will be in a place of constant separation from God in a place of His consuming fire that never ends. We many say then God is unreasonable to allow his creation to end up in such a desolate place? Just, like what Jesus depicted of Lazarus and the rich man, as the rich man ended in such a place and Lazarus in Heaven.

Jesus said He is the Light of the World, when He said “world” he was referring to us living beings, not the physical world, He said He came to save sinners, He was declared by God to be ‘The Lamb of God’ what did God mean by this? As a Sacrifice a Lamb without blemish is always chosen as a Sacrifice’ therefore God chose Jesus as His Lamb that was Sacrificed at Calvary for our Sin.  So, when Jesus was Crucified He said, “It is Finished’ and at that moment the Temple Curtain was torn, revealing the inner place of High-Holy, as Jesus became our High Priest, but we must turn to Him and receive His Gift of Grace.  Jesus Rose Triumphantly, and conquered death forever for mankind. And through His Grace we have His ‘Priceless’ Gift of Everlasting Life with Him.

Prayer:

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

            Do not let the devil take the lead, push him to the trash heap.  Let the Lord lead in all things

When the devil tempted Jesus, how naïve the evil one was… He offered Jesus what Jesus already owned.

Matthew 4:9 In Context

All this I will give you,” he said, “iyou will bow down and worship me.”

      What a wonderful name… the Name of Jesus the Messiah, King of kings…

There’s only ‘One-Way’ to the Father… Let’s not make any compromise by making any changes.  God’s edict has not changed, God’s prerequisite remains the same, as Jesus is the Same, Yesterday, Today and forever.

So, when a group even the church gathers, unless they gather in the Name of Jesus, they need to call upon the name of Jesus.  While the Lord said…

Matthew 18:20 The Word of Jesus…

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

1 Corinthians 5:4

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,

We cannot pretend to be in Faith… (1 John 3:10) New International Version (NIV)

10 This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister.

In sports, in the Military, Government and even in Families there are pretenders, and could we include the Churches? The Scriptures said we are not to judge… so we have featured from the written Word the following text to demonstrate that our Almighty will not be mocked…

(Matthew 7:21–23). (NIV) True and False Disciples:

21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and, in your name, perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

But God is not mocked

(Galatians 6:7); (NIV) Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows

EVENING:

The Un-Ending Love of our Savior…

He knows who his people are

(2 Timothy 2:19 ). (NIV) 19 Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”

 

1 John 3  (NIV)

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.

Let us acknowledge His Graciousness…Ephesians 2:8-9 New International Version (NIV)

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.

Good News… We have Peace in Jesus our Lord and Savior found through His Grace:

Hebrews 4:15-16  (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.

His Eternal-Assurance: (Claim this tonight by coming to our Lord) Romans 8:38-39

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

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

Ask God to remove the barriers… He said He will level the mountain and straighten the pathway.

What is keeping you from getting through? When Moses came to God in the most difficult time of him leading the Israelites to Canaan, the multitude were at a point like ending up is a dead-end alley. God said to Moses, why are you crying out to me…  God said, “Just Do It’. The nay sawyers in the multitude, starting blaming Moses that he brought them there to die.

We all know that the Red-Sea was parted, and the multitude went across.  While chasing the Israelite, Pharaoh’s soldiers in chariots had their wheels ‘jammed’ by God.  Here we see the sense of humor of the Almighty God. Maybe it was God’s way of allowing the soldiers to be enlightened as they said… Let us get away from here, as we are not fighting the Israelites, we are fighting their God.  Somehow, or some way it was God’s will that the soldiers may within the moment of realization that it was the God or Israel who was in charge, and somehow  they may have asked for God’s forgiveness.

So, when we have asked the Lord for His favor, we must realize that he has granted it, and believe that we have received it.

Mark 11:24

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

Jesus makes no preference, you are important to Him, there is no one higher.

Get the right map. Check who prepared it. Know the author and trust in him…

The Holy Bible is still the single best seller of all times. The author is God… as we read from Genesis to Revelation, the oldest book is JOB written by an ‘unknown’ author.

Preface… if we knew everything then we would be God. So, as the Bible said… professing to be wise, they became fools…

Romans 1:22

Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools.

The book of JOB is written relating God’s experience and as a testament of His love and protection provided to Job. Even though Job suffered many adverse things, including losing his family, his wealth, and his health, he never cursed God. In fact, in the midst of his plight and suffering from sores, Job said…

Job 19: 23-27 NIV

“Oh, that my words were recorded, that they were written on a scroll, that they were inscribed with an iron tool on lead or engraved in rock forever! I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I will see him with my own eyes I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!

Job 19:23-27 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage?search=Job%2019:23-27&version=NIV

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

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Devotionals for Sunday July 5, 2020

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

Text: Philippians 4: 4-9 (NKJV)

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

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

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

Meditate on These Things

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

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

Philippians 2 New International Version (NIV)

Imitating Christ’s Humility

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

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

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

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

7 rather, he made himself nothing

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

    being made in human likeness.

8 And being found in appearance as a man,

    he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—

        even death on a cross!

9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place

    and gave him the name that is above every name,

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

    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,

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

Today as many congregations may not be gathering  in the House of the Lord due to the Covid-19 Virus. Yet, we shall worship the Lord… let us come in His Holy Presence and let every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Remember that the love of God that radiates to us this Sunday should be shared with many and to Imitate Christ’s Humility… and do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

The foregoing is somewhat a tall order as some will rebuff or debase your humility. Why? Kindness is often mistaken for weakness.  Therefore, the Gift of Salvation so ‘Freely-given’ is often overlooked and material things takes precedent.  Do not envy the wealth of others, because in your heart you should know that your ’Real-Wealth’ is the truest wealth of all, as in your heart there rings a melody, and this is the love of Christ. Knowing that in Christ all things are possible.

Philippians 4:13 (NIV)

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

We have so much to tell…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The declaration of Independence…The founding fathers of the USA drafted a masterpiece inspired by the belief in God.

The USA is a Republic.

The United States is Not a Democracy—and it Wasn't Meant‎, but democracy is the rule by the people...


 Republic

Let us celebrate Freedom…: God gave us the freedom of choice, but are we mature enough and strong enough to resist the temptations and make the right choices?

Text:  Matthew 26: 41 Watch and Pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing (To resist the temptation) but the flesh is weak.

Commentary: Consider that our Creator created man and woman and gave us dominion over all living things. Consider the enormity of Plant Life, Animals, and all species of Aquatic life, Birds and even to the smallest ant. And as we speak about Ants, this specie that builds their little kingdom with the hierarchy of a Queen and an army of workers. The same applies to the Bees that form colonies and is governed by a form of hierarchy, The Bees also has ‘Drone’ these are the male Bees that mate with new Queen. They serve one single purpose of carrying on the specie.  Bees die after they string, and the Male Drone dies immediately after they mate with the new Queen, they mate in the air and right after consummation, they fall to the ground.  Not only do they die after consummating, after they have performed their duties, they are kicked out of the hive and not allowed back in.

Look at how God loves us, He gave us dominion over all living things, He gave us freedom, but we squandered the Paradise that he made for us, so as Adam & Eve were ‘evicted from Eden’ we are here today having to be employed or to employ and generate an income to meet our needs. 

A well-known quote from an anonymous writer said… We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch, the country of our birth, or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing. We do not, most of us, choose to die; nor do we choose the time and conditions of our death. But within this realm of choice lessness, we do choose how we live. – unknown/

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus today as we bring Your Good News of Salvation to many, we seek Your blessings on our Visitors and Lord remove the scales from our eyes and lead us to Green Pastures and Your Still Water of Life.

Focus: Acts 19: NKJV - Miracles Glorify Christ

11 Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, 12 so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them, and the evil spirits went out of them.

13 Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “We exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches.” 14 Also there were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did so.

15 And the evil spirit answered and said, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?”

16 Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered[b] them, and prevailed against them,[c] so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. 

17 This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified. 18 And many who had believed came confessing and telling their deeds. 19 Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20 So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.

Commentary:

Even the evil spirit knew the ‘pretenders’ and it is almost humorous to see… “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you?”  16 Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. 

Jesus said…  Matthew 7:15You Will Know Them by Their Fruits] “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.

Psalm 111:10

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

 

Commentary:

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

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

Matthew 24:14

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

For as long as you have been around, it is the belief that the text above about when the ‘End’ will come.  We want to point out that the ‘Gospel’ is the Key Element of this text, and what is the Gospel?  Read on…

The gospel is the good news about what Jesus Christ has done to reconcile sinners to God. Here is the whole story:

  1. The one and only God, who is holy, made us in his image to know him (Gen. 1:26-28).
  2. But we sinned and cut ourselves off from him (Gen. 3; Rom. 3:23).
  3. In his great love, God sent his Son Jesus to come as King and rescue His people from their enemies—most significantly their own sin (Ps. 2; Luke 1:67-79).
  4. Jesus established His kingdom by acting as both a Mediating Priest and a priestly sacrifice—He live a perfect life and died on the cross, thus fulfilling the law Himself and taking on Himself the punishment for the sins of many (Mark 10:45; John 1:14; Heb. 7:26; Rom. 3:21-26, 5:12-21); then He rose again from the dead, showing that God accepted His sacrifice and that God’s wrath against us had been exhausted (Acts 2:24, Rom. 4:25).
  5. He now calls us to repent of our sins and trust in Christ alone for our forgiveness (Acts 17:30, John 1:12). If we repent of our sins and trust in Christ, we are born again into a new life, an eternal life with God (John 3:16).

Prayer:

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

            Never give up – Keep praying for your loved ones and those you want to know Christ

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

Commentary:  A young man whose mother loved the Lord and taught him about the love of Christ, but this young man went off to college, became a physician buy never followed his mom’s leading. While in internship at a hospital where we saw a lot of accident victims; there was a man who suffered a mighty fall who was not going to make it.  This man was conscious so the young physician asked is there anyone that he would like to notify to come and visit him, the injured man said he had no relative, but he would like his landlady to come and see him so that he could pay what he owed before dying.

The young physician called the landlady who came a few times, the man died peacefully, the physician was asked; what should they do with a bible that they found that the man was reading, the physician said he would take it as the man had no relative.

Taking the Bible, the physician opened the bible and found that this was a bible his mom gave him, when he went off to medical school that he sold. The physician’s name was written inside the front cover written by his mom. He was shocked because of the coincident of this bible coming back to him. He took it home and read all the passages that the man had underlined.  The young physician was led to the Lord after realizing the Word of the Lord and the prayers by his mom and the unconditional love of God.

Sometime in our life when we offer to help someone, we ourselves get more benefit returning to us.  The incident of this young physician’s life’ experience of this accident victim owning a Bible that was owned by the young physician was a divine interaction of the Lord in the life of this young physician; whose mom was fervently praying for her son to come to Jesus.

Do not neglect to entertain strangers, because somewhere or sometime an angel of our Lord will be sent to you…

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

But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 1 (Whole Chapter) 

The Divine Super-Natural powers of our God far exceeds our thinking abilities… so today we stand in awe of the great things our Lord has done for us, His Divine Redemption through his Crucifixion and His Triumphant Resurrection.  He came to redeemed us.  Just as Jesus is of the linage of David through Joseph His earthly father that fulfilled the prophecy written over 700 years before Christ was born, we are descendant of Adam whom He created, and by the sin of Adam we are all sinners.

EVENING:

What a privilege our Lord has given us… Through His Death and Resurrection, we have His Divine Redemption. You may say…why do I need to be redeemed? I am going to die someday and what do I know or care?  Guess what? You will never die, because you are carefully and wonderfully made in the Likeness of God, and as such we will never die. The Word of God said… It is appointed unto to man to die once and after that the judgment; here we see a very contradictory statement, how can you be around for the judgment if you died?  Because we never die, and even after the judgment we will live forever.  In Christ we will have a life of Splendor, without Christ we are separated from God forever in a place of desolation. 

Our Lord is a Loving God, but He is also a God of a consuming fire.  Hebrews 12:29

For our God is a consuming fire.

Friends today our message is a little mix of ‘Fire and Brimstone' tone, but there is GOOD NEWS Because He is ready to receive you and make you a Victor and not a Victim…

2 Corinthians 8:9

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.

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

The Truth will set you Free… Lies will trap you and the end is finishing bad.

We can Trust Him… Our Lord is Faithful, and He Loves us!

Text:  Isaiah 58: 11 NKJV
The Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose water do not fail

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

Commentary:

The Providence of our Faith in Jesus…

Matthew 6: 25-34 NIV

Do Not Worry

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

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 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.

His Promise:

Matthew 5: 12-16 AMP

12 Be glad and supremely joyful, for your reward in heaven is great (strong and intense), for in this same way people persecuted the prophets who were before you. [II Chron. 36:16.]

13 You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste (its strength, its quality), how can its saltness be restored? It is not good for anything any longer but to be thrown out and trodden underfoot by men.


14 You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.

 15 Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.

His Faithfulness:

The Good News for today is:

  “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). 

Just as Paul prayed for the Ephesians...  this prayer is applicable to us all today... Ephesians 3: 14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.  20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Action/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.

When you have had great deliverances out of troubles and turmoil, remember to say…, "I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears." And supplied all I have needed because our Lord is Faithful… Praise Our Lord Jesus who sits on the Throne of Righteousness.  www.goodnewsforever.org

Conclusion:

We thank you for visiting this site...

Sometimes we face disappointment in life, only to learn that what we were seeking would have been a bad situation.  Sometimes we enter a business or personal relationship and then the outcome is not what we expected. Of these two scenarios, it is best to seek the guidance of our Lord in taking any steps in our lives.  Why? Because He said, He knew us even before we were born and that He knows his plan for each of us.

Just as He had plans for Adam & Eve, but they fell for the lies of the evil one. In our daily lives the same evil one is masquerading as the angel of light and we must be careful and seek our Lord’s divine guidance.

Just think if Eve had consulted the Lord before listening to the lies, what a difference this world would have been, The Garden of Eden would still be there.

Take heart, He is preparing a new Restored Eden and He said we who know Him will be where He is/. 

THE GOOD NEWS... 

HE Rose triumphantly, and because HE conquered death... Romans 8:  37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Prayer:

Father in Jesus we come. Lord today we acknowledge that You are our Redeemer and our Sovereign Eternal God in One of the Father in His Holy Trinity. Lord we thank You for Your Grace, and as You told Paul that Your Grace is sufficient, and it is all we need Lord. We thank You Lord Jesus, as we ask Your Blessing on us all and to our Visitors, grant to all that are seeking refuge in You as You said come unto to you. Lord grant us all Your Favors as we ask, Seek and Give Thanks in Faith, knowing that all things are possible through You for those that loves You Lord. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

Devotionals for Tuesday June 30, 2020

Topic:             God’s Plan = TRUTH – Man’s Plan = Hidden Agenda


Focus:   The science of marketing used by media giants today is significantly dependent on ‘Tracking’ your search and shopping habits. The new Chip in your Credit Card; EMV -- which stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa are a dynamic digital security method that is not constant, therefore to it is more difficult to replicate the card by a fraudster.

While the EMV Chip may be better than the data-strip cards, they may be more vulnerable to fraud as the RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) can be accessed while your Card is in your pocket.

The question is… Is EMV Chip a prelude to receive a mark on the hand or on the foreheads?

Revelation 13:15-17 New King James Version (NKJV)

15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or[a] the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Not to be fearmongering, but the ‘hidden-agenda’ of man may be in fact the agenda of the evil one.  The event of Eve being tempted by the ‘Serpent’ is being applied on a grander scale.

Truly the Word of God will prevail and what was given to John by the Lord to write in His Revelation, it appears that all of what Revelation 13: 17 said… and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or[a] the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Someone wrote that she declined her credit card with a chip, she later discovered that she could not access her bank account.  The hidden agenda is starting to be revealed.

We may say let us hope this isn’t so… but we may ask’ are we there yet?  At this point the only sure thing is…’The King is Coming’

Revelation 11:15

Seventh Trumpet: The Kingdom Proclaimed] Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”  In Context | Full Chapter |

Fear not… These are the Words of the Lord:

Matthew 10:26

Isaiah 41:10 [Full Chapter]

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’

To our Lord there is nothing Spooky and unsettling… His divine Grace was displayed here on earth at Calvary… There is nothing spooky but all Divine… The Curtain separating the Inner Sanctum of the Temple was torn when Christ said…” It is Finished” the Sun went dark for three hours, a darkness that was without shadows.  He Rose from the Dead on the Third Day, He Ascended into heaven by Levitation. 

So, our Prayers and Brain waves are heard by our Lord even a billion all at once but individually for each of us.

Use this Divine Power that our Almighty God gave us, and not only did He give us this power He gave us an even higher power to ‘elevate’ us to Him through His Son Jesus whom He made the Sole Mediator between us and God.

Devotional: Heavenly Father because no one has even seen You except Your Son, and Jesus my Lord we are privileged to be in Your Holy presence by Your Holy Spirit. It is with Awe that we can experience to Power of Your Glory and Your Holiness.  Lord we give You Preeminence in all things we do and in You Lord Jesus we Praise you and go with Your Peace that surpasses all our understanding… Amen.

Knowing Him – Fellowship in Oneness:

Let it be Your Will Lord… John 1:14

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations

John 1:17

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus today we Praise You for Your Majestic power knowing that You are the Incarnate God of Your Holy Spirit. Lord we are in awe of the vastness of the universe that you have made and given mankind domination over Your Creation. Lord we had such privilege that was squandered in the garden of Eden, but Lord Your Un-Conditional love for us You Mercies we have and Your Redemption made available to us all, we thank You for your Grace and we accept Your Gift of Salvation in You Lord. Lord thank You for remembering us just as You remembered Noah and replenished the earth and we today are here because of Your Grace. Lord bless our Visitors and grant as Your Peace and Favors Lord. We pray in your Holy Name Lord Jesus to you is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Devotionals for Monday June 29, 2020

Topic:   Begin with yourself. Make changes from within…

Focus: Change from within begins with Love, Forgiveness, caring for others and Seeking God’s Peace…

We are addressing the apostasy and drifting away from the Lord… Statistics is showing the decline of Christianity and the growth of other religious groups.  Is this a fact? Or is it just a posturing by the mainstream media?  In the business world the fraudsters use the Pump & Dump method of getting followers that result in the sale of their stocks.

The principle of the ‘Pump & Dump’ process is built on the ‘sheep-syndrome’ which is defined as… Sheep Syndrome refers to the oblivious mindset of a people within society who unawares support a movement or ideology which is potentially dangerous to the well-being and safety of their community.

Hitler ran a great Pump & Dump operation, and many cults apply this principle.  Many religious groups including Islam claiming to be the fastest growing, but this is a myth.

The fastest growing in China… The Telegraph News: China on course to become 'world's most Christian nation' within 15 years. The number of Christians in Communist China is growing so steadily that it by 2030 it could have more churchgoers than America.

Ten thousand Chinese become Christians each day, according to a stunning report by ...veteran correspondent John Allen, and 200 million Chinese may comprise the world's largest concentration of Christians by mid-century, and the largest missionary force in history...

I suspect that even the most enthusiastic accounts err on the downside, and that Christianity will have become a Sino-centric religion two generations from now. China may be for the 21st century what Europe was during the 8th-11th centuries, and America has been during the past 200 years: the natural ground for mass evangelization. If this occurs, the world will change beyond our capacity to recognize it...

Where is your ‘Comfort-zone’? It is all ‘Paid-for’ by Jesus our Redeemer who suffered so that we could have His Peace & comfort.

God blesses those who takes risks for Him, but the risk is insured by faith

Text:  James 5:7 [Be Patient and Persevering] Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.

Matthew 5: 43-45 43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45. That you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

2 Corinthians 5:17

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

Galatians 6:15

Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is the new creation.

But His great commission to us to bring the Gospels to all and spread the Good News to the ends of Earth is to be our mission for His Glory.

Principle: Not only do we have his assurance; it is eternal as we lay up treasures in heaven as his faithfulness abounds.

Ephesians 2: 8-9  (NIV)

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.

EVENING: Never a Busy signal… Calling on the Lord, He is Omniscience, Omnipotent and Eternal.

Prayer: Lord Jesus we come knowing that You are on the Throne of Righteousness and no one comes to the Father unless through You. Lord today as we seek your Divine guidance and thank You for our Visitors and we ask Your Providence and above all Your Redemption on us all.  Lord bless this day as we go with the Peace from you knowing that You our Redeemer Lives and we can boldly come to You. Lord in Faith we go with your Assurance. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You are the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday June 28, 2020

Angel unaware…

Finding God’s Grace… Call on Jesus, He is the Giver of Grace.

His Marvelous Grace… He said to ‘Test Him’

Malachi 3:10

Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows. In Context |

James 1:13 

Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone.

When seeking wealth, be prudent and not fall for the pitfalls…

1 Timothy 6:9 But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction.

The results of tempting the Almighty…

Psalm 78:56

Yet they tempted and rebelled against the Most High God And did not keep His testimonies,

 

Psalm 106:14

But craved intensely in the wilderness, And tempted God in the desert.

The 11-day journey turned out to be a forty-year trek. 

So, today… Let us not make the 11 day journey into a lifetime without His Grace…

: Jesus said He came that we would have life and have it more abundantly…

Text: Revelation 3:20  

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

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

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

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

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

Jesus said we must have Faith and Faith is a belief in something unseen, He said if we have faith like a grain of mustard seed, (which is the size of this . dot) we can move mountains.  Jesus spoke about mountains, and these are ‘mountains’ in our lives... such as: Health, Finances, Families, Relationships and our love for others like ourselves.

We have heard it many times, have faith… this is a good saying, but it cannot save us, it is like knowing that the pharmaceutical product that is well known to cure what you may have, you know of it, but you do not have a prescription because you haven’t been to the doctor. The same principle applies you can ‘Know of’ Jesus and you also know that he can save you and give you His Peace, but you haven’t come to Him and introduce yourself to Him and ask Him to give You His Grace. His ‘GRACE’ is what saves.

His Grace is the ‘Gap’ between your acceptance of Him as Your Savior and the time when you enter His Kingdom at which time you will be fully sanctified and free from sin forever.

Now His Grace covers a period which is  the ‘Gap’ when you are saved and have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, and now that you are saved, Jesus will be your Intercessor, as we now have an advocate with Jesus.  So as a new creation now redeemed.

Prayer: 

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord today as we acknowledge that Your Truth is no longer hidden in Earthen Vessels, we bring You to all and Praise You as we thank You for the Visitors and this privilege of serving You Lord.  Lord bless each of our Visitors and we thank you for Your Favors and we know that all things work for the good to those that loves You Lord. Lord grant us safety as we stand up for You Lord knowing that we will never be ashamed in placing You first, as we pray  to you Lord Jesus our Redeemer and our Sovereign Eternal God in One of the Father, to You is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Journey’s end… the name of an upscale exclusive community… 

Journey’s end is the most prestigious residential community in all of Florida. This exclusive residential enclave was developed by the former chairman of Alcoa Aluminum Company. (Arthur Vining-Davis) 

While ‘Journey’s end’ boasts some of the most exclusive estate homes, it will be no comparison of what our Lord Jesus revealed to John in writing the book of Revelation.

Revelation 21:18 In Context | 

The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass.

Revelation 21:21 In Context | 

The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass.

While Jesus spent His 33 years on earth there was no ‘elaborate mansion’ owned by Him. Today, it is fashionable to own a luxury home, drive a super car, and the compliment of a corporate jet and a luxury yacht.  Sometimes we need to be reminded that we take nothing with us, and all the earthly adornment is of no value. So, we prefer to look at the reality of life…

A child dies from hunger every 10 seconds

Poor nutrition and hunger are responsible for the death of 3.1 million children a year. That is nearly half of all deaths in children under the age of 5. The children die because their bodies lack basic nutrients. Globally, 822 million people suffer from undernourishment. 

The magnitude of 822 million is 2-1/2 times the population of the entire USA.

Looking at the turmoil, the challenges, the unrest and politically charged division and self-enrichment.  Maybe it is time…

Matthew 24:14

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

Matthew 24:31 In Context | 

And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

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

 

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

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

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

We read the select verses, and he got up and said, “I am amazed over the years I have been your banker and neighbor, but I never thought you would bring me the answer, I am now ready to face the Lord as I now know where I am going to be”.

The message of Salvation is as Jesus said…

Romans 8:1 [Full Chapter]

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

26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

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

Friday: June 26, 2020.

Thank the Lord for Brotherly love… it cannot be bought… Preserve it, nurture it.

Thoughts for the Day: Brotherly love is better than money in the bank… Yes, money goes but a true friend is the best possession. 

TEXT: Romans 8:38-39 (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.

Commentary:  Benjamin Franklin said that a true friend is the best possession. The statement that “if you want a friend get a dog”, this has been linked to Harry Truman the 33rd president, but he never owned a dog. Maybe Ben Franklin could have said, if you need a friend… find Jesus as He is faithful indeed.

A true friend sticks closer than a brother, James the half-brother of Jesus never believed that Jesus was the Messiah until he witnessed the Resurrection of Jesus. James later became a believer and a leading advocate for Christ. Thomas one of the disciples that doubted the resurrection of Jesus to which the Lord appeared and showed him His wounds finally was convinced.

What will it take for us to believe that our Redeemer lives? Jesus spent 40 days after His Resurrection from the dead with His disciples, but He did not leave them alone, He sent the Holy Spirit as a ‘Comforter’ that we could have His assurance that He will return again…  Jesus Himself said this:

John 14:1-3   (NKJV)

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

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

What a wonderful future He has given us…

Colossians 3:4-5 (NKJV)

When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

What a Privilege He gave us:

1 John 3:2-3 (NKJV)

Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

His Assurance: 1 John 3: 14 14 We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death.

Now that we have His Assurance, let us come to Jesus knowing...

Philippians 3: 20 20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,

Isaiah 43: 2 (NKJV)

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.

” Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you: He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.  Psalm 55: 22 

In spite of the loving care of our Lord, we still have to be on the watch.

Conclusion:

God in His infinite power of Light & Love, He did reveal His love for us in the Divine Gift of His Son in Jesus Christ. God came to us in the fullness of His Grace.  He came that we might receive His pardon by His Atonement for our sins and save us from everlasting destruction.  One might say, how do we have the authority of making this statement of Everlasting Destruction?  Because we are simply repeating the Word of God, as He said we are Created in His Likeness, and He also said that it is appointed unto man to die and after that there is a Judgment… God is never wrong, and these two statements affirmed that we will live forever.

The Love of God found its fullest expression in the Cross, where the Lord Jesus bore the judgment for our sins, meaning that he stood in our place, and by His Crucifixion, He paid It All, and by His Blood of Atonement, we are able to receive His SEAL of Salvation.

Let us come our Lord this evening knowing that we can be...Confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.  Philippians 1: 6 NKJV

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Redeemer we come. Lord today as we honor You knowing that you intercedes for us to the Father, we are privileged to serve You and we are blessed to have many Visitors daily to bring them Your Good News. Lord be with our Visitors and grant each and every one Your Peace and Lord let Your Divine Blessings flow to us all as we come knowing that it is only by Grace that we are saved and not of anything we do. Lord Jesus we pray this in Your Holy name and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Love conquers all… When Jesus said… Father forgive them for they do not know what they do, this was true Love.

1 Corinthians 13 [Full Chapter]

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 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. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

...

What is a foundation? The ‘charitable foundation formed by the rich industrialist, and the rich politicians, these are what we refer to as financial conduits to avoid Taxes.

 This also make them high profile donors, but the Bible said…

Matthew 6:3

But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,

In Context | Full Chapter 

Matthew 3:17

And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

Matthew 5:43

Love for Enemies] “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’

Matthew 5:44

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

Matthew 5:46

If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?


Romans 8:35

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?

Romans 8:39

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.

In Context | Full Chapter |

Devotional:

Lord Jesus as we read Your Word of assurance, we thank You for Your promise that You will never leave us nor forsake us…

Coming to the Lord:

The gospel Provides the hope in Christ…  Be patient and determined to receive his holy spirit,
be compassionate to all Be truthful and loving,  the main goal is the future in Christ, let the principle of ’I shall decrease, and He must increase in life' prevail. So that I might know Jesus and proclaim Him to all to be intimately connected to Christ; He Jesus to be pre-eminent in my life.

Philippians 3: 12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.

EVENING

By sharing my life with Christ, I will become more like Christ
We must share in Christ's sufferings and in his victory

Because Christ has made me his own...

Philippians 3:12 (NKJV) Pressing Toward the Goal

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

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

Have a zeal to serve Him when we can say… I have found a friend in Christ, knowing that Ephesians 2: 8-9 is by His Grace…For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord thank You for Your Grace, Your Divine Redemption, and Your Unconditional love.  Lord we praise You and give You first place in all as we yield to You and seek a closer walk with You. Jesus Messiah, we thank You for being our Intercessor as we are presented to the Father by Your Righteousness and by Your Blood of Atonement we are saved.  Father we acknowledge that there is one God and one Mediator between You Father and man, and it is by You Lord Jesus Christ who gave Yourself a ransom for us all.  Lord let Your Holy Spirit be indwelling in us as we go in Faith.  Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your favors. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Are we there yet? The question was asked…can we all get along?

As the protest continues and the opposition to public statues and now even against images of Jesus, but the Power of God will prevail, and Jesus is King of kings and Lord or Lord.

Supreme Court rules that Maryland ‘Peace Cross’ honoring military dead may remain on public land

https://www.washingtonpost.com/resizer/1sBD-WpPECPC21b6Xz5nOgk-Epw=/1484x0/arc-anglerfish-washpost-prod-washpost.s3.amazonaws.com/public/CBRJWLVW2II6RJ5VVWVKLMVFP4.jpg
The "Peace Cross," the focus of an intense court case regarding its upkeep and placement on public land, stands at a busy intersection in Bladensburg, Md. (Michael Robinson Chavez/The Washington Post)

June 20 at 10:53 AM

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a large cross erected as a tribute to war dead may continue to stand on public land outside Washington in the Maryland suburbs.

The justices reversed a lower court that said the cross was an unconstitutional endorsement of Religion

“The cross is undoubtedly a Christian symbol, but that fact should not blind us to everything else that the Bladensburg Cross has come to represent,” Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote. “For some, that monument is a symbolic resting place for ancestors who never returned home. For others, it is a place for the community to gather and honor all veterans and their sacrifices for our Nation. For others still, it is a historical landmark. For many of these people, destroying or defacing the Cross that has stood undisturbed for nearly a century would not be neutral and would not further the ideals of respect and tolerance embodied in the First Amendment.”

The vote was 7 to 2, with several justices writing separate opinions. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented, Ginsburg emphasizing her disagreement by reading part of her dissent from the bench.

Are we all Seekers?  Columbus sought a new world; NASA is exploring Space, and you?

While Columbus thought he was sailing to Asia, he was headed to the Caribbean. recently NASA announced… Two Potentially Earth-Like Alien Planets Found Around Nearby Star.

Nearby is a relative term in astronomy. The earth-like planets are 12.5 Light Years away.

Revelation 5:11 In Context 

Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands,

These tens of thousands found their way to the throne by God’s divine guidance.

2 Corinthians 5:6

So, we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord.


Today as ‘Seekers’ we are confident of:
2 Corinthians 5:8

We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

Reproduction… Jesus said unless…

TEXT: John 12:24

Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.

1 Corinthians 15:36

Foolish one, what you sow is not made alive unless it dies.

Commentary: The Egyptians placed grains in the hands of their mummies as told by Jesus…  Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain.

So, we see that the grains in the hands of the mummy remained alone and never reproduces.

When Jesus said…  “Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain”; Jesus was using this as a metaphor of His Crucifixion declaring His Triumphant Resurrection… His reference to…” If it dies, it produces much grain was a declaration of His Saving Grace through His Blood of Atonement.  We who are washed in His Blood through His Holy Spirit, His blood is a SEAL applied on each of us as a ‘Deposit’ paid by our Lord. We are bought at a price, a price so astounding it’s Priceless, but He gives it  ‘Free’ and He is ready to place this ‘Deposit’ on you making you eligible to be with Him in His Kingdom. A place Jesus called ‘Paradise’

Key Factor:  There is nothing better than to know that you can say…” I AM A CHILD OF THE MOST-HIGH”

Confession is not salvation… To confess one’s sin does not save you from the sin. Confession with acknowledgement of our sin against God must include asking His Forgiveness plus turning from our sin towards God through Jesus Christ our Savior who redeemed us.

Prayer:

Heavenly father, as we go in faith through Jesus our Lord and savior, we can be victories knowing that defacing of public monuments are in fact a challenges as the damage inflicted are creating an awareness of what challenges them. Lord Jesus as You said forgive them as they do not know what they do… Lord we thank You for our Visitors and we seek Your Divine Blessing on us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and Forever more… Amen.

Tuesday: June 23, 2020.

No, we are not forgotten, the 400 years of silence was broken by the Advent of Jesus, His return will be seen by all.

         Grin and bear it, yes or no? when is enough is enough? Nonsense is nada, nil.

100% of zero is zero, talk is cheap, but facts are facts. So, do we grin and bear it? Listening to nonsense?

In the Three years of Jesus ‘ministry, the Sanhedrin and others spent most of their time trying to trap Him, seeking ways to discredit Him and to persecute Him.

His Crucifixion was carried out by people that thought they were condemning a man that claimed to be the Son of God. But little did they know they were in fact carrying out the Will of God.

The ever-presence Messiah

Day 1

 God said: “Let there be Light” and Yeshua appeared

Scripture said… Jesus is the Light of the World.

Factoid: The Sun was not placed in the sky until the fourth day. Therefore, it was Jesus as the Light of the world.

Colossians 1:15

Number 2:

The coming of Jesus as declared…

The announcement of the Birth of Jesus:

Luke 2: But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.

Luke 2:10-11

 - https://www.biblegateway.com/passage?search=Luke%202:10-11&version=NIV

For unto you is born in the city of David, a Savior is born…

This was the first coming of Jesus, the Anointed Christ.

And:

Number 3:

The ‘second-Coming’ will be as described in the Thessalonians…

1 Thessalonians 4:17

After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so, we will be with the Lord forever.

So, clarifying the “Visits” of Jesus = first on the day of Creation + Jesus born of a Virgin + His return = 1+1+ His return = third time.

Factoid: Jesus is always present in the Holy Spirit, as He said…

Where one or more are gathered He is always in the Midst when we come to the Father.

Summary: the “Second” coming is of Jesus as the Return of our Messiah, therefore it is His “Second” Return as The Messiah.

Compiled by Maurice Hoo

www.Goodnewsforever.org

Today we have a society that has gone off the deep end into making a mockery of His intelligent Design.  Not only are we doing this, if Jesus was to return without the Trumpet sound, most likely, He would not be recognized and would be greeted by scoffers and probably be arrested or be looked at as an insane impersonator.   Even in our Churches, if He was to come as He is and sat in the front Pew quietly, many of us would just stare at this strange looking fellow and probably not say…”Welcome to our Congregation’ (Except for the greeters)   in fact it would have to take a hot looking couple driving up in a Bentley Coupe and walking into the sanctuary that many would probably take notice and say hello how are you and probably extend a welcome to our church….

His Promise:

“He who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’... Revelation 21:5, NIV)

His Faithfulness:

Our Creator knew our finite strength. He gave us physical strength, but our spiritual strength is only gained through our walk with our Lord. We need the Grace of our Lord, and to be equipped with the Armor that He has provided to overcome the evil forces in this world.  Ephesians 6:17 Put on the Armor of God… Heb 4:12 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.

James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. - Colossians 1:17

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Monday: June 22, 2020.

God is not slow in His return, He is giving us time to repent, just like the journey of the forty years to Canaan.

Our daily lives are full of things to do…

The abundant life, are you experiencing it? Let us say yes. Even with the daily chores, why? We can get through the day because of Him…

The Book of Revelation is not a fiction, it is a disclosure… Read, or get help to understand it.

Last year we studied Revelation and what it revealed in some ways it was an epic presentation of the future. To a Hollywood producer the scenes and drama depicted would be a challenge for the special effects.

Regardless. The disclosures were so unconventional, one would never have written this manuscript as it went beyond our comprehension. 

Likewise, the scene at the day of creation would be much more complex. But today cinematography with computer animation a production could be made to illustrate what the book of Revelation revealed. However, the Bible presented the metaphor of ‘Beasts, Dragon other images’ are all wrapped into one epic event to come.

Our finite mind and comprehension of what we read must be defined, and in many ways, we must refer and link parts of the Bible and then find the answers. multiple parts of the New Testament are drawn from Part-One (the old Testament) as the Bible is all about Christ and His redemption through to the transition to the New-Kingdom.

Today, we may have the abilities to do the special effects, but what the Bible described are events, and not ‘stories’ and these events occurred before the existence of formal education.  

Mankind could not and did not have a role in what is described in the bibles, why? On the day of creation, humans were not yet created. When God said… “let there be Light” there was Light, and it was not the sun, it was the ‘SON’ Yeshua/Jesus who appeared. So, we humans had no part of God’s Grand design.

Great writers, like Isaiah, Daniel and others were God’s chosen prophets with fore knowledge of events to come. Just like it is said…that the Torah was written by Moses. Moses wrote about the Creation, but he was not present, therefore Moses compiled his writing, also inspired by the Lord.

John was ‘Listening as Jesus revealed to him the events of what will come soon.

Revelation 1:1

Prologue] The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,

All what Jesus disclosed through John are events that MUST soon take place.  How soon is soon? Remember to the Lord a thousand years is like a day. 

The Beast, the Dragon, the Leopard, the Bear, and the Lion.  What are these symbols synonymous with? Do some research and you will be amazed… 

Leviticus 26:6 (Written by Moses)

“‘I will grant peace in the land, and you will lie down, and no one will make you afraid. I will remove wild beasts from the land, and the sword will not pass through your country.

The Prophecy of God’s Kingdom…

Daniel 7:23

“He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it.

Prayer: Lord even now as we gather, send Your messengers, let us be good listeners and doers of Your mission. Jesus Messiah just as Your mission was and is to save sinners, we acknowledge your Divine Redemption through Your Saving-Grace. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Providence. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Churches are closed due to the ‘Lockdown’ let us look at when Jesus held church… He gathered thousands and He needed no church building. So, today hold church like Jesus, just go to the Father in His Name.

Jesus delivered ‘The Sermon on the mount’ the Beatitudes…

Matthew 5 New International Version (NIV) 
Introduction to the Sermon on the Mount

 1 Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, 2 and he began to teach them.

The Beatitudes

    He said: (Jesus direct statement)

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

Principle:  Our Lord’s Grace and His Kindness and Graciousness are His gifts to those that serve and place Him first.

Live by the principle of… Spiritual maturity is developed by holding unto a FAITH that is FIRMLY ANCHORED IN CHRIST; and knowing that we are never on our own because Jesus is our High Priest.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

Philippians 4:6

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

And Jesus said to him, “‘If You can?’ All things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:22-24 (in Context) Mark 9 (Whole Chapter) 

Mark 10:27

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

Good News -His Faithfulness:

His Promise:

From the day of Creation God provided us with the goodness of His creation and gave us dominion over all living things. Just imagine, the creation of Heaven and Earth were made for Mankind… just think that God in His Infinite Wisdom by His Intelligent design did all this for us. Why” because He loves us... But we betrayed His trust and sin entered the lives of humans, now as descendants of Adam we inherited this blemish called Sin.  But nothing surprises our Majestic God; He provided a way for us to be redeemed by the Blood of Jesus. Jesus, who was with God and the Holy Spirit from the beginning of it all, Jesus was predestined to be our Redeemer.

Conclusion:

His Faithfulness:

God placed us here to enjoy the worship of him and the intimacy of his love for us
This is the big joy that he gave us so forget the short-term pitfall disguised as happiness.

Joy is from Jesus, as we ‘Rejoice’ in Him, as He is the Light of our Souls.


2: God named his creation i.e. Light, the expanse Sky, and he separated the darkness from light and the water from dry land.

  • God named it all,
  • The defining focus of God is Love not power
  • God brings order
  • God commanded; us to be fruitful and multiply
  • God blesses His living beings
  • God gave us lordship over all living things and dominion over earth

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

My Broadband service, its slow at times but always expensive. God’s direct line is always at optimum speed and can never be interrupted, and its Free…

How do I know if He is real?

            The world did not just happen; science and man still do not understand many things, the grand design of His Creation and His super-natural being, Jesus  born of a Virgin, died and rose by a divine resurrection is as real as real can be. John 1 NIV

The Word Became Flesh

 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

The ‘Power of the Lord’ is as powerful as it was in the year 0001 and in 550 BC, and today.  We know that the description of the Chariots of Fire, were God’s means of transportation,

17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

18 As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike this army with blindness.” So, he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked.


Do we have this ‘Power’ only through the Grace of the Lord.  Yes. as He is still in charge. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, the Lord Jesus is the Same.

As the Word of the Lord said… we are more than conquerors and made a ‘Joint-Heir’ in Christ. Let us share this privilege with others…

Just like not making that ‘Alter-Call’ and someone in the audience wanted to come to Christ, but the service ended, and everyone dispersed.  It is always good to ask… Is there something I can do for you?

We can never turn back time, imagine if we could hit the replay button and do a make-over, how wonderful this would be, we could cancel the mistakes we made, the things we did and to avoid the things that offended others. But it would also be an opportunity to have led someone to the Lord, and even saved a life.

What is the best thing you can give someone today, maybe, it is ‘Hope and Peace’

Romans 8:37

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

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

Romans 8:31

More Than Conquerors] What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Matthew 24:30

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

Mark 13:26

“At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.

What a glorious day it will be… Many may become complacent, as these Words in the Scriptures were written 50-70 AD which is around 1,963 years ago.  So, if you are around the age of 60 this means that you have been hearing about the return of Christ for all your life. But do not lose heart, as the Word of the Lord will be fulfilled, and what Jesus said will occur.

Prayer: Lord Jesus… We thank You for Your Covenant of Grace, and Your Unconditional love. Lord today as we give You preeminence in our lives, we are privileged to serve, and we thank You for our Visitors. Lord let Your Divine blessings flow to each as we give You our praise and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Friday: June 19th, 2020.

Brotherly love is an experience that cannot be bought… Preserve it, nurture it.

        Charity by being pitiful, or by caring and love, choose one…

Sympathy is understanding the position of the person that you empathize with…

While Pity is just feeling sorry for the person…

Empathy is able to recognize and share someone else's perspective, respecting their circumstances.  Expressing sympathy is just being concerned for the other person's plight.

True charity is not letting your left hand know what your right hand did…

Matthew 6 New King James Version (NKJV)

Do Good to Please God

6 “Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you [a]openly.

Today we have large philanthropic foundations, and many announce to whom they donated to, or gave a major grant.  Many are Tax-driven formed as a Tax-Exempt organization.

Many well-known Non-profit groups are well deserving of the gifts, pledges, and grants that they receive. In the USA we are privileged to have this Tax provision.  As we reflect on two true God inspired groups, The Navigators® and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA®) From humble beginnings to worldwide ministries have kept the integrity of the Lord’s mission for: Dawson Trotman, the founder of the Navigators® and Billy Graham. 

Both these two servants of the Lord through their interaction nurtured their Christ-Inspired ministries; that are significant legacies thriving in these times of change.

So, sound no trumpet, just give, and give, as we can never out-give the Lord.

Nothing lasts forever, even bad leaders, and the good ones too… Retirement is a resignation, so do not resign continue to serve…

Whom do you serve? Are you serving as a Steward, a Trustee, a beneficiary, or a benefactor? We all serve in these as each of us are a beneficiary.  But being a beneficiary, we must also be a benefactor as a faithful steward fulfilling the role as trustee to be able to share the Gift that Christ endowed to us all.

Nothing lasts forever, but the ‘Priceless-Gift’ of God’s Salvation will be forever.  Grace is defined as: mercy, charity, clemency, grace, leniency, so we see that Grace is in actuality a ‘Window of opportunity’ as we once said… the notice reads; your insurance policy lapsed, but you have a ten day ‘grace’ period to pay it to continue coverage. 

No one likes to be a ‘charitable-case’ but we are mere humans, and Jesus said…” Without Me you can do NOTHING” therefore in the sight of the Lord it is by His mercy that we can receive clemency, because he is lenient not in just Words, but by His Sacrifice at Calvary that his Blood was shed for us fulfilling His Redemption.

Remember, if someone comes to your door and offer you a gift of a gold-nugget and you refused it, then you just missed receiving that precious gift. Jesus offers His Redemption which is far greater than the gold-nugget, and it will last forever, no one can steal it or take it away it is yours forever.

TEXT:  John 10:27-29(NKJV)

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow, Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.

EVENING:

So being a beneficiary to His Kingdom we are mandated to ‘share’ it with others…

Action:  Mark 16:14-16 NKJV)

The Great Commission

14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

Prayer: Lord we thank You for Your Divine Redemption as we thank You for our Visitors, and we ask Your blessing on each as we go in faith spreading the fragrance of Your love and in You we have victory. We pray in Your Holy name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Who can you turn to for help? Or who can you help today?

TEXT:  Romans 3:24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, Romans 3:23-25 (in Context) Romans 3 (Whole Chapter)

Good News:  2 Corinthians 2:14

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

2 Corinthians 2:13-15 (in Context) 2 Corinthians 2 (Whole Chapter)

Commentary:  A young man whose mother loved the Lord and taught him about the love of Christ, but this young man went off to college, became a physician buy never followed his mom’s leading. While in internship at a hospital where we saw a lot of accident victims; there was a man who suffered a mighty fall who was not going to make it.  This man was conscious so the young physician asked is there anyone that he would like to notify to come and visit him, the injured man said he had no relative, but he would like his landlady to come and see him so that he could pay what he owed before dying.

The young physician called the landlady who came a few times, the man died peacefully, the physician was asked; what should they do with a bible that they found that the man was reading, the physician said he would take it as the man had no relative.

Taking the Bible, the physician opened the bible and found that this was a bible his mom gave him, when he went off to medical school that he sold. The physician’s name was written inside the front cover written by his mom. He was shocked because of the coincident of this bible coming back to him. He took it home and read all the passages that the man had underlined.  The young physician was led to the Lord after realizing the Word of the Lord and the unconditional love of God.

Sometime in our life when we offer to help someone, we ourselves get more benefit returning to us.  The incident of this young physician’s life’ experience of this accident victim owning a Bible that was owned by the young physician was a divine interaction of the Lord in the life of this young physician; whose mom was fervently praying for her son to come to Jesus.

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

Do not neglect to entertain strangers, because somewhere or sometime an angel of our Lord will be sent to you…

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

But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 1:19-21 (in Context) Matthew 1 (Whole Chapter) 

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

Wednesday June 17th, 2020. 

What would you prefer to do right now? Keep your eyes on Jesus…

The lineage of Christ is a winding trail… Yet God used ordinary people in preparing for the birth of His Son Jesus.  This He did to show that Jesus came as a man, yet he was God Incarnate.

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

There are many instances of the Giver receiving back something that he could never attain, we see this in the action of Boaz who instructed his farm hands to give to… 

Ruth 2:15  (Suggested reading, click here In Context | Full Chapter |

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

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

Down the line…

  Jacob had Joseph, Mary’s husband,

    the Mary who gave birth to Jesus,

    the Jesus who was called Christ.

17 There were fourteen generations from Abraham to David,

    another fourteen from David to the Babylonian exile,

    and yet another fourteen from the Babylonian exile to Christ.

Jacob had Joseph, Mary’s husband,

    the Mary who gave birth to Jesus,

    the Jesus who is Christ – Emanuel.

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

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

David’s Prayer

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2 Corinthians 9:8

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

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

 Enjoy the chores, give thanks that you can do it, even now…

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

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

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

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

The difference in Relationship and Fellowship...

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

A walk that must be taken, and sometimes renewed.

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

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

Jesus the Bread of Life

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

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

EVENING:

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

John 15:16 Good News Translation (GNT)

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

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

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

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

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

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

Philippians 4:12

New King James Version (NKJV)

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

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

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

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.




Monday: June 15th, 2020. 

Did computer make our lives easier? Is it helping you?

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

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

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

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

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

And he said, “Here I am.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

Commentary:

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

Matthew 5:45

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

Mark 12:26

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

Matthew 8:11

And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.

1 John 2:1

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

EVENING:

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

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

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

And:

Proverbs 16:18 New King James Version (NKJV)

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

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

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

Prayers:

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

The Shepherd will separate the Sheep from the Goats, be on the right side…

Why are the Sheep separated from the Goats?  This is not saying that the goat is a bad animal. The Sheep has a different need and tends to follow a leader, the Goat needs Mineral that the Sheep cannot consume.

The Bible refers to many ‘separations’ such as…

Matthew 13:49

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

Matthew 19:6

So, they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined, let no one separate.”

Matthew 25:32

All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

New International Version

Matthew 3: 12

His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire."

By His Assurance…       All things are possible through Christ… His Providence prevails His Love endure forever, and He is faithful forever.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

Philippians 4:6

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

Mark 9:23

And Jesus said to him, “‘If You can?’ All things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:22-24 

Mark 10:27

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

Mark 11:24

Therefore, I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.

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

Revelation 21:5

And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He *said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.”

Good News -His Faithfulness:

His Promise:

From the day of Creation God provided us with the goodness of His creation and gave us dominion over all living things. Just imagine, the creation of Heaven and Earth were made for Mankind… just think that God in His Infinite Wisdom by His Intelligent design did all this for us. Why” because He loves us... But we betrayed His trust and sin entered the lives of humans, now as descendants of Adam we inherited this blemish called Sin.  But nothing surprises our Majestic God; He provided a way for us to be redeemed by the Blood of Jesus. Jesus, who was with God and the Holy Spirit from the beginning of it all, Jesus was predestined to be our Redeemer.

Conclusion:

His Faithfulness:

God placed us here to enjoy the worship of him and the intimacy of his love for us
This is the big joy that he gave us so forget the short-term pitfall disguised as happiness.

Joy is from Jesus, as we ‘Rejoice’ in Him, as He is the Light of our Souls.


God named his creation i.e. Light, the expanse Sky, and he separated the darkness from light and the water from dry land.

  • God named it all,
  • The defining focus of God is Love not power
  • God brings order
  • God commanded; us to be fruitful and multiply
  • God blesses His living beings
  • God gave us lordship over all living things and dominion over earth

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

    Matthew 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest

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

 Psalm 68:10 New King James Version (NKJV) 10 Your congregation dwelt in it;
You, O God, provided from Your goodness for the poor.

  • Let’s take the steps to Victory……  From a Cave to a Palace.
  • Sustainable is a common word used by many industrial companies, Sustainable energy, sustainable methodology, Sustainable farming, etc.

 Yet man in their peak of wealth many became unsustainable.

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

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

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

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

Good News Translation (GNT)

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

Doctrine is a set of rules, and practicing doctrine is almost bordering on Superstition.  Superstition is often dismissed as ‘Old Wives’ tale’ yet in the human trait.

Doctrine could be construed as living under the Law and not governed by the Grace of our Lord.  There is a fine line here… Some living by doctrine thinks that their quest to be righteous is paramount that will assure them of salvation.  

Galatians 2:21 Good News Translation (GNT)

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

  1. All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God…
  2. We cannot say we are without sin
  3. If we do, we make a liar of our Lord Jesus
  4. We cannot earn our way to His Kingdom
  5. No one comes to the Father unless through Jesus
  6. We are saved by Grace and not of anything we do

If we could live by the law and be holy, then Christ died In-Vain.  If anyone could get to Heaven on their own accord, then Heaven would not be a place where I would want to be, as there would be those that boasts about their achievements, and how good they are. This is what our Lord said… “You Must be Born-Again” and being Born-Again, we are a new Creation.  

If we think we will be in Heaven acting like our old self, then life will be just the same drudgery of a constant battle against the forces of evil.

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

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

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

Eyes have not seen, nor can we imagine, what is in store for us…

            The Lord will make level the mountain, and the winding roads will be straightened…

Isaiah 40:4

Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough places smooth; In Context |

Are you facing a mountain today?

Whatever it maybe, the faithfulness of the Lord is more than an assurance. His word is true, and when we delight ourselves in Him, He will grant us the desires of our hearts.

You may say, “I have prayed and made my requests, and still I have not received my request”

Sometimes our requests are not provided, why?...

James 4:3 New International Version (NIV)

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

So, Faith + Motives x God’s Grace = Fulfilments.

Our Lord is Omniscient and Ever-Present, and nothing that we think, do, or wish for will be granted when the intent is not for good.

The key word is… ‘Delight’

2 Corinthians 9:8

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

So, delight yourself in the Lord… Psalm 37:4 This defined the difference of Need and Wants…

Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. In Context

Today claim His Gift, receive His blessings, and know that you are a child of the Highest.  Nothing can deter you because the Word of God said…

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.

Romans 8: More Than Conquerors

31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.

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.

In Context 

Hebrews 12:28-29

28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire

Philippians 4:13 New International Version (NIV)

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

We have so much to tell…

The Love of God, through Jesus our Redeemer

The exaltation by God the Father of Jesus our Sovereign Eternal Redeemer in the Holy Trinity

Let us acknowledge Jesus as Lord…

Let us give Thanks to the Lord for His mercies, His Gracious Gift and His coming Return…

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

  1. Mark 10:15 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
  2.  

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

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

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

      Why do we age? Imagine never growing old, sick, never dying?

Aging is a good thig if you are a bottle of wine. Vintage Wines…

 What is the Prime of your life? Is it 40-50-60 or?  It is a combination of physical, mental by adding Spiritual your Prime is extended.

There is no age at which we are best at everything, or even most things… Josh Hartshorne at Harvard University conducted the study that even concluded there could be an upside in your flagging libido.

Our mental abilities rise and fall in waves as we keep on developing skills, we may even expand our reading comprehension and our mathematic skill improves.  The age old idiom of ‘You can’t teach an old dog new tricks’ may be not so true, but ​it may mean that it is very ​difficult to ​teach someone new ​skills or to ​change someone's ​habits or ​character.

So, getting better with age may not only apply to vintage wines, but we are an amazing creation and more so when we add God to the equation of aging.

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

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

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

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

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

EVENING:

Coming to our Lord:

His Faithfulness:

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

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

Matthew 10:32

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

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

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

Our greatest treasure will be eclipsed by what God has in store for us

What is your greatest Treasure? If it is the Gift of Grace it can never be eclipsed. Anything else will be eclipsed, including your present body, all your earthly belongings.

God’s Grace is the highest Treasure we can ever receive, it is freely given, and never be lost…  

Ephesians 2:8

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—

So, by His Grace He, Jesus is our Greatest Treasure.

Ephesians 1:2

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 1:6

to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.

Ephesians 1:7

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace

Ephesians 2:5

made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.

Ephesians 2:7

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.

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

The challenges of this world will become passé’ regardless of who you are, we all have challenges. The rich worries about their wealth, the poor worries about their next meal, the healthy worries about their health, but as we see with Christ His disciples had no worries, they were all provided for. No one bought or sold anything, Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John never had to sell anything nor to borrow from anyone.  Even Judas never had to earn his keep, but when he took the thirty pieces of silver to betray our Lord, we see a person that was always ‘stealing’ from the money bag that Jesus allowed him to carry, and this was not enough for Judas. Why? Because Judas never was a part of what Jesus said… John 6: 35 Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

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

Now that we have seen the Faithfulness of our Lord Jesus, let us come to Him and Praise Him and thank Him for His Divine Providence. We urge you to “Come to Him and to ‘Believe’ in Him and His promise that we will never be in need, is a truthful saying, worthy of our full faith and trust knowing that in Him we have victory.

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

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord we thank You for clarity in Your statement of “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. Lord Jesus it is with Authority that You have said this and Lord as You Have Ascended into Heaven and now sits on the Throne of Righteousness Your statement is now with Authority and Power.  Lord thank You for our Visitors and let Your Divine providence be upon us all as we go in Faith knowing that in You, we have Victory. Lord we pray this in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

      Think of this… an endless life in a place with Jesus on the throne…

The Best is yet to come…  So, as we listen to the news, the disturbances, the action of one against another. Let us NOT condemn the entire nation. Civil disturbances, violence against others, damage to property, looting and burning.  What do we have here? It is a symbol of hatred or fanaticism?

Sigmund Freud is considered, by many to be the father of psychoanalysis. He is credited with uncovering the irrational nature of psychology and our beliefs in rationality. ... It was Freud's strong belief that even the most irrational behavior, dreams, fantasies, and communications are important and mean something.

Freud used these irrational behavior and phenomena from a psychological perspective.  He determined that all irrational behavior happens for a specific reason and if that was true then these behaviors must ultimately be considered “intelligible and rational.”

So, anger fueled by oppression can trigger irrational behavior and there is only one way to deal with this… The Love of Christ.

     Jesus makes no preference, you are important to Him, there is no one higher.

Get the right map. Check who prepared it. Know the author and trust in him…

Why every world map you are looking at is WRONG: Africa, China and India are distorted despite access to accurate satellite data (Excerpt from: The Daily Mail-UK)

  • The distortion is the result of the Mercator map which was created in 1596 to help sailors navigate the world
  • It gives the right shapes of countries but at the cost of distorting sizes in favor of the wealthy lands to the north
  • For instance, north America looks larger, or at least as big, as Africa, and Greenland also looks of comparable size
  • You can fit north America into Africa and still have space for India, Argentina, Tunisia, and some left over
  • Map suggests Scandinavian countries are larger than India, whereas in reality India is three times the size. 

Even in illustrating the Maps, there was a high degree of prejudice applied. For instance, north America looks larger, or at least as big, as Africa, and Greenland also looks of comparable size

You can fit North America into Africa and still have space for India, Argentina, Tunisia, and some left over.

So, we have just proven that even the world map we have relied on for centuries are inaccurate not by human error, but by deceitful intent to diminish the lesser developed countries.  Fortunately, God is makes give no preference to any specific person, country or even to the highest spiritual leaders.

Jesus gave us more than a glimpse of His Kingdom, it is fully described in the book of Revelation, and beyond this, He made you a Joint-Heir to be an owner.

The Holy Bible is still the single best seller of all times. The author is God… as we read from Genesis to Revelation, the oldest book is JOB written by an ‘unknown’ author.

Preface… if we knew everything then we would be God. So, as the Bible said… professing to be wise, they became fools…

Romans 1:22

Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools.

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

  Why did Jesus leave earth? Was it because He returned to Heaven?

His Mission was ‘Finished’ as He said…

John 19:28

It Is Finished ] After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!”

John 19:30

So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “Itis finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.

The ‘real’ Good-News… that is 1,987 years old; can you guess what it was, it is as new today as it was then

TFT:                The Sun went dark for 3 Hours and He said…”It is Finished”

TEXT: Hebrews 10:23 New International Version (NIV) 

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

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 

We read...The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: "God, I thank you that I am not like other men--robbers, evildoers, and adulterers--or even like this tax collector." - Luke 18:11 

Looking at such a prayer, we need to be less 'self-centered' and more 'Christ-Centered' as our Lord while on the cross, simply said... "Father forgive them for they know not what they do". Remember also as Jesus said while on the cross, "It is Finished" several events took place... Earthquakes, the Sun went dark for 3 Hours, the Curtain in the Temple was Torn, It should be noted that the Curtain was replaced by HIS NEW COVENANT, by HIS ULTIMATE SACRIFICE; and Jesus became our HIGH PRIEST! And... Knowing that Jesus our Redeemer ascended to Heaven and sits on the Throne of Righteousness, and HE intercedes on our behalf as our Advocate, as our High Priest.  

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) 

Action/Coming to our Lord:

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, 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 

EVENING:

Our Lord consistently mentioned “Faith”

The application of Faith must be well placed, meaning we can seek and ask in faith, but our intention(s) must be focused on not just ourselves, but to care for others.   The famous quote made by Cain, ‘Who made me my brother’s keeper?” we already know the answer why Cain said this, because he did kill his brother Abel. 

Our Lord revealed one of His Secrets, ‘FAITH’ and this is the most powerful gifts from our Lord. But we as Humans have a mental capacity to think, and even to think BIG just like when Paul and Silas was in Jail Praising the Lord, there was a sudden earthquake and the prison doors were flung opened and their chains were loosen. This is Faith in Action. Faith in God and not in mere man, as our Supreme God the Creator of the Vast Universe is able to do great things for those with Faith.

Romans 10:13 New International Version (NIV)

13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” http://static5.bgcdn.com/images/icons/icon-audio.png

http://static5.bgcdn.com/images/icons/icon-audio.png

Colossians 2:9-10 New International Version (NIV)

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

http://static5.bgcdn.com/images/icons/icon-audio.png

Ephesians 1:7 New International Version (NIV)

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace

Prayer:

Heavenly Father we come in Jesus our Redeemer and our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity… Lord today we go in Faith knowing that You are interceding for us and that we can look to that day when we shall see You as You are. Lord bless all Visitors and let your Word be received and grant to us all Your peace; we ask this in Your precious name, and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Sunday:  June 7, 2020

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

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

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

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

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


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

Jude 1:12

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

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

Text: Revelation 3:20  

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

Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Saturday: June 6th, 2020

                Why did Jesus said… “it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle? …

Matthew 19:24

And again, I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

Jesus said this and it was attested to by Matthew, Mark & Luke…

What did Jesus mean? He did not say ‘All” rich man, because He was friendly with many, including Joseph of Arimathea. It was Joseph and Nicodemus that prepared Jesus for burial and gave the unused tomb that belonged to Joseph.

When we look around us and see ‘Rich man’ who are they? (Not to judge) but some have used their wealth to influence society away from God. Some have blatantly declared themselves as members of cults, satanic church and have indulged in highly immoral activities.

Because Jesus sees us all from the inside out. He knows our thoughts even before we act on it. He knows that wealth ultimately can corrupt. But He also endowed many with His Providence and as He said… He came to give us life and a more abundant life.

Philippians 4:11 [Full Chapter]

Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content

Hebrews 13:5

Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Do this…  Sharing the Providence of the Lord… spread your prosperity of not just money, but the Grace of the Lord.

What is the Providence of the Lord?  It is not just supplying our daily needs; it is more than sustaining us through this life.  The Providence of the Lord goes beyond this world…  What other world do we need to consider?  If this was all there is, are you fully satisfied? Maybe yes and maybe no… If the answer is yes, then continue to enjoy until you are 90 or older, then what?

Considering the world that Jesus described, and the most profound statement ever spoken by anyone was…” I am not of this world”. Therefore, Jesus came, lived on earth for 33 years, was crucified, but He rose from death. Some may say He did not die He was in a state of a coma. But there is something we cannot deny, for a burial the body was fully wrapped with strips of linen and this covered the entire body, no air is allowed in or out. So, if Jesus had not died on the cross the burial would have suffocated him.

So factually Jesus Rose from death, walked among many and seen by thousands, and then gathered with His disciples and when He asked, “Do you have any Fish?” they gave Him a piece of fish and He ate it. This is another unrefutably proof of Jesus being in the Flesh and not a spirit, because a spirit cannot consume food.

John 14:2

My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I agoing there to prepare a place for you?

While the statement above is clear, Jesus went on to say the following that included a caveat (A warning) by saying... “And if I go and prepare a place for you”; the ‘For you”

John 14:3

And iI 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.

So. Today He is there, and He has prepared a place but not for everyone. But we must remember that the Lord makes no preference, He said only those whose name is in the Lamb’s book of life will enter His Kingdom.

Who is the ‘Lamb’? Jesus is the Lamb of God, because God chose Jesus as our Redeemer.  Why? Because of His love for us.

If you feel your life is not ‘really-fulfilled’ because each day it is just ‘more of the same’? then look to Jesus, He can make your life an exciting journey through this world to His Kingdom.

So, knowing that Jesus said He wants you and us to be with Him, this is an enormous privilege, and it is offered, but we must receive His invitation, and this is by accepting Him.  One the other hand we sometimes must ask ‘Am I acceptable to the Lord?” Yes, because just come ‘As you are’ just come with faith like a child, leave all posturing, ego, self-righteousness and I am better than the other person, just know that Jesus died and Rose and conquered death so that when we accept Him we are Redeemed from the trash heap of this world and are named in His Book-of-Life.

Prayer:

Lord Jesus today as we come, we approach Your throne boldly as You said come unto to Youi.  We thank You Lord for Your Divine Providence.  Thank You Lord for our Visitors and we give You first place in all.  To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

             Is Water more essential than food? Make a guess…

The availability of water will attract more birds than just having feed alone. In fact, water is more important than food. Living tissue (protoplasm) is largely made up of water which is essential for life. Living organisms can live without food for an extended time but they cannot live without water.

God gave us the freedom of choice, but are we mature enough and strong enough to resist the temptations and make the right choices?

Text:  Matthew 26: 41 Watch and Pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing (To resist the temptation) but the flesh is weak.

Commentary: Consider that our Creator created man and woman and gave us dominion over all living things. Consider the enormity of Plant Life, Animals, and all species of Aquatic life, Birds and even to the smallest ant. And as we speak about Ants, this specie that builds their little kingdom with the hierarchy of a Queen and an army of workers. The same applies to the Bees that form colonies and is governed by a form of hierarchy, The Bees also has ‘Drone’ these are the male Bees that mate with new Queen. They serve one single purpose of carrying on the specie.  Bees die after they string, and the Male Drone dies immediately after they mate with the new Queen, they mate in the air and right after consummation, they fall to the ground.  Not only do they die after consummating, after they have performed their duties, they are kicked out of the hive and not allowed back in.

Look at how God loves us, He gave us dominion over all living things, He gave us freedom, but we squandered the Paradise that he made for us, so as Adam & Eve were ‘evicted from Eden’ we are here today having to be employed or to employ and generate an income to meet our needs. 

A well-known quote from an anonymous writer said… We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch, the country of our birth, or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing. We do not, most of us, choose to die; nor do we choose the time and conditions of our death. But within this realm of choice lessness, we do choose how we live. – unknown

The thief on the cross next to Jesus as he repented and asked Jesus… said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.”

Luke 23:43

And Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.

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

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus today as we bring Your Good News of Salvation to many, we seek Your blessings on our Visitors and Lord remove the scales from our eyes and lead us to Green Pastures and Your Still Water of Life. We Praise You Lord and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

      ‘Just-in-time’, saved by the bell, or saved by Grace. Choose grace it is from God.

Thoughts for the Day: No Appointments Necessary, No legal representation needed. Just call Him from where you are. Use His Password…JESUS, because He said all who call on His name He will hear us.

  1. 1 John 4:6

We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

  1. 1 John 5:14

[Confidence and Compassion in Prayer] Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 1 John 5:15

And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

Commentary:  What is your Password?  The use of passwords is known to be ancient. Sentries would challenge those wishing to enter an area or approaching it to supply a password or watchword, and would only allow a person or group to pass if they knew the password. A typical computer user has passwords for many purposes: logging into accounts, retrieving e-mail, accessing applications, databases, networks, web sites, and even reading the morning newspaper online.

This should be your ‘Password’ JESUS...This is the only name you need to know that can save you. The Bible said there is no other name given under heaven among men by which we must be saved.

Acts 4:12

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

Notice the Verb ‘MUST’ is used, not the word ‘shall’

Must is defined as…

Did you know the Gospel is not an invitation? It is a Command… When Jesus said… It is appointed unto man once to die and after that the Judgment…. He was not asking a question, He was telling us the fact.

When He told Nicodemus “Unless you are Born-again you cannot enter the Kingdom of God” John 3:7

Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ John 3:6-8 (in Context) John 3 (Whole Chapter)

Hebrews 9:27 New King James Version (NKJV)

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

We just read a statement that once would say is a paradox, why? If you die how could you be around for the ‘Judgment’?  The answer is, we are created in His Image, and we really never die.

EVENING:

These are the word of Jesus …

John 5:24 New King James Version (NKJV) Life and Judgment Are Through the Son

24 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.

His Good News… John 11:26 (NKJV)

26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”

This question … “Do you believe this” was asked by Jesus Himself…

We are so privileged to know our Lord Jesus who spoke with Authority (Not by force but with the Divine Power of His Father) 

So let us all say…”We Believe” because in John 11: 26 above this defined that in Christ we never die. Believers may die physically but, as those who has eternal like (Born-Again) their physical death is not their ultimate end.  Because Jesus is the Resurrection and the life we shall triumph over

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Matthew 6:25
[Do Not Worry] “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

 So Come to our Lord today as He said come unto Him and He will receive you and forgive you of your sin(s) and you will be a new creation in Christ.
Pray... Lord Jesus I come in Faith accepting Your gift of Salvation I choose to be alive in You by your Grace my Lord. Lord Jesus receive me as I repent of my sin and accept your great Salvation by your Blood of Atonement, and I seek Your divine guidance in  my life, come into my heart, let Your Holy Spirit lives in me now and forevermore…to you Lord be the Glory... Amen. 

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come… Lord Jesus we thank You for Your priceless gift of Salvation and in you we have victory.  Lord today as accept Your Word of assurance that you will come again and receive us to Yourself, that where You are we shall be also. Lord thank You for the privilege of serving You; and we thank You for our Visitors as we ask Your Divine blessings on each

 of us. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

     Why do you prune the grapevine? So, it will bear more fruits…

Commentary

While Jesus said…”If you remain in Him, and His Words remain in you, anything you want will be granted. But, one thing we cannot do is ever bargain with the Lord. Do nothing in exchange hoping that what you do will gain His blessing, do it because you love Him and serve Him. Jesus came to serve, He is yet God in One of the Trinity, yet He never declared Himself to be King, but at the time when Pilate wrote Hail King of the Jews, He never denied it. So, today we affirm Jesus as King of kings and Lord of lord, and He is Eternal.

God did the heavy lifting we are told that his yoke is light

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

Commentary: Happiness is an event brought about by circumstances, and it is temporary, Joy is from the Lord and it is ever lasting. Joy is knowing that Jesus said…”He will never leave me nor forsake me”.

Happiness is getting your utility bill and it is just $98 versus the usual $275; but guess what?  next month there will be an adjustment as they read the meter incorrectly.

Philippians 4: 4-7 (NIV)

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5l Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Joy is mention in the Bible (NIV) 218 times

Jesus is full of Joy… Luke 10: 21 At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

John 16:24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.

Action/Coming to our Lord: By placing Jesus first I have been blessed beyond my expectation.

His rewards are an abundant life. Because God blesses those who takes risks for Him, but the risk is insured by faith not only do we have his assurance; it is eternal as we lay up treasures in heaven as his faithfulness abounds

Conclusion: Jesus said…”I am not of this world” He also said…”Today you will be with me in Paradise”

Paradise is an intriguing word, it depicts Joy, Splendor, and a place that eyes have not seen nor can we imagine the beauty of His Kingdom. 

The following are selected texts of JOY:

  1. Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
  2. Hebrews 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
  3. 1 Peter 1:8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.

As we end the day and place all in the hands of our Lord, let us Praise Him for His Graciousness.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come.  Lord Jesus be with us as we look to another day that you have created and let the new dawn be filled with Peace and Grace from You Lord. Lord we thank You for Your Divine Redemption and we thank you for our Visitors and we ask your blessings on all as we give You the Glory, we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

John 15 

New Living Translation

Jesus, the True Vine

1“I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. 2He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more.3You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. 4Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.

5“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. 6Anyone who does not remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. 7But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! 8When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.

            Where’s God in the equation? Without him, it is like building a house of cards.

Our Lord is  our Creator, Protector, Provider and Redeemer. His covenant is more than a promise… His. Word is His bond, because He, God said… never will He leave us nor forsake us.

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.” So, we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever… Hebrews 13:5-8

Today… the world is undergoing a lockdown due to the Covid-19 Virus. The political confrontations and protests, mass-Migration, countries against countries, bankruptcies of iconic companies and economic uncertainty for many. Where is the silver lining?  Is history being repeated or being written? We consider that the events of our time is unmatched. Even the era of the plague that decimated Europe was not a global event. Considering that the Coronavirus penetrated the most remote regions of civilization, this is a real game-changer.

Except for the Flood during Noah’s time, there’s no global event such as the pandemic sweeping the world.

Are Prophecies being fulfilled? The Bible states… In the Beginning was ‘The Word’ and the Word was God…

John 1:1

The Word Became FleshIn the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. In Context | Full Chapter |

Trinity is not mentioned in the Holy Bible, it is a 4th century description of:



  • Remnant of Steel forming a Cross at Ground Zero 911 NYC
  • God the Father…
  • God the Son (Jesus Christ)
  • God the Holy Spirit (Also known as the Holy-Ghost)

‘Ghost’ is really a meaning of ‘God the Host’…

Over the centuries, man has made our own meaning applying the Latin meaning, now frequently use as Triune…

Jesus is GOD, the second person of the Trinity…

The uniqueness of God (Jesus)

Psalm 33:1

The Sovereignty of the Lord in Creation and History] Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous! For praise from the upright is beautiful.

Colossians 1:16

For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. (Jesus)

So, today as we come and know Him, Jesus gave His assurance…

Romans 10:12

For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.

John 3:17

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

Acts 2:21

And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved.’

No other name, no one else can save sinners…

Acts 4:12

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

Some may ask… why do I have to be saved, I am comfortable where I am, I have all I need and what am I going to be ‘saved’ from?

Hebrews 9:27

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

Now, if we are going to be around for the judgment, then you really did not die, your soul lives on, and then there is a second death…

But in Christ, there’s no second death…
Revelation 2:11

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.”  

Revelation 20:6

Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

What a Glorious Gift by God’s Grace, to be able to reign with Him.

Today, let us Praise our Lord Jesus for His Sovereignty and His Graciousness.

Prayer: Thank You Lord, Jesus our Redeemer as we say we know Whom we have believeth, and to You Lord is the Glory. Lord bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Divine Providence as You know our Needs and overlooked our faults. As we gather in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, thank You for Your Holy Presence in the Name of the Father, You Lord Jesus, Son and Holy Spirit, Yours is the Kingdom now and forevermore… Amen.

          Are we living in a time of more tensions? Or an overload of News & politics?

Why do we have Monday morning blues?

Here are some suggestions

Monday Blues:

  • Make a priority list. ...
  • Review what is to be done. ...
  • Fill in how to wrap up each item ...
  • Enjoy the weekend and end the day with positive thoughts ...
  • Early to bed and wake up Thanking the Lord ...
  • Share the good news, ditch all negativity. ...
  • Be positive. ...
  • Spread the Joy (of the Lord).
  • Keep the agenda light
  • End the day early and go walking…

We all dreaded Monday morning some time of the other, a good thing to know, Jesus said…

Matthew 6:25-34

Do Not Worry

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

The assurance of Jesus never fails. So, whatever that may be a part of your Monday morning Blues, just reflected on the Word of Jesus.

Remember… He knows our needs, but we must ask, and when we ask, believe that it is received.

Mark 11:24 In Context |

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

Hebrews 11:6

And without faith it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Psalm 37:4

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

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

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

Ezekiel 1: 27-28 NKJV

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

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

1 Corinthians 15:40 In Context | Full Chapter

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

John 8:12

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

Prayer:

Father in Heaven in Jesus our Redeemer we come knowing our Lord Jesus sits on the Throne of Righteousness and by His Grace we can come into Your Holy presence. Father we thank You for our Visitors and the privilege of being made Joint-Heir with Christ our Lord, and by Your Grace Lord Jesus we are all children of God through You Lord Jesus. Thank You Lord for coming and redeemed us by Your Blood at Calvary. We Praise You Lord Jesus and lift You up before all and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.
