DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday February 28th, 2021

Today is a great day to re-affirm our forgiveness, spending time in the Word, communicating with the Lord, tell Him about our appreciation of His Love and His unconditional pardons by His Grace…

It is a special day today, and the Lord is listening….

He is listening every moment, but on this special day He is listening for the Praise and Adoration from us, as we appreciate His Love and Adoration granted to us by His Grace.

We Praise because He is God, and we can say He is a Good, Good God because of His Unconditional love for use.

He created us in His image unblemished in perfection; but there was a blemished, not by His design; but by the sin of Adam.

This blemished opened the door to sin. We came without sin, but because of that forbidden fruit, we were made vulnerable to sin.

A newborn baby is sinless, but because of our vulnerability caused by the original sin, all became vulnerable and sin over-shadowed our unblemished souls.

But God is a loving God, and He provided a way for us to be redeemed from the condemnation… Through Jesus who came and by His Divine crucifixion and Resurrection, our sin was taken to the cross.  How is this possible? Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice for us.

So, let’s look at the Sacrifice that was the Passover…

God provided the Israelite with the protection from the angel of death, by the blood of the lamb the first Passover was realized, and by the Blood of Christ; we are marked for the final Passover… which is the Day of the Lord…

2 Peter 3 New King James Version (NKJV)

God’s Promise Is Not Slack

3 Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of [a]us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. 

But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and [b]perdition of ungodly men.

But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long-suffering toward [c]us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Today’s devotion is to give the Lord our Praises, and for those that may feel it is more a sermon than a devotional, let us thank our Lord for His Grace, and that through Him we are made perfect. So, use His wonderful Grace to share the Gospel of God’s Good News of His priceless gift of Redemption through Jesus.

Prayer:

Father in  heaven, Lord Jesus as You are at the Right Hand of the Father we come and give You our Praises knowing that because of Your Righteousness we are made worthy to be in Your Holy Presence.  Lord today we as we walk by Your radiance, along with our Visitors, bless us all and by Your mercies we are privileged to say that by Grace we are saved and not of anything we do. We pray in Your Holy Name, to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

Saturday February 27th, 2021

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

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

Springtime will be here soon… March 20th:

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

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

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

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

Matthew 5:45

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

Wait upon the Lord…

Isaiah 45:8

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

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

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

Matthew 7:25

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

Matthew 7:27

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

The question is…are we there yet?

Luke 17:29

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

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

Acts 14:17

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

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

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

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

Matthew 5:20

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

Ephesians 5:5

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

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

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

This is their enjoyment.

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

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

Matthew 25:21

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

Matthew 25:23

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

Here we see the message from Jesus repeating the above.

James 1:12

Loving God Under Trials

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

1 Peter 5:4

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

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

Quoting Whitney Hopler… Crosswalk.com

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

John 8:12

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

Prayer:

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

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

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

The Fragrance of the Lord…

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

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

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

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

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

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

2 Timothy 1:9

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ephesians 2:8-9 [Full Chapter]

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

1 John 1:9

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

The Solution is…. Hebrews 7:25

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

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

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

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

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

Hebrews 11:6

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11:5-7 (in Context) Hebrews 11 (Whole Chapter)

Prayer:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The recent article of…

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

www.nature.com › news feature › article

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

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

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

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

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

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

Romans 1:16

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

Mark 8:38

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

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

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

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

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

Psalm 37:4

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

Prayer:

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

Monday February 22nd, 2021

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

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

Revelation 21:1

A New Heaven and a New Earth

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

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

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

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

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

John 3:16

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday February 21st, 2021

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

1 Corinthians 13

The Excellence of Love

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

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

Matthew 5:43

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

Matthew 5:44

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

Matthew 5:46

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

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

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

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

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

Thoughts for the week:          

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

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

Know the difference of Forgiveness versus a Ransom-paid.

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

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

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

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

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

STATEMENT OF FAITH –

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We believe in The Holy Spirit and by His Word that He would send us His Holy Spirit, Verse 15…  The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba Father.” 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thanksgiving…

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

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

The Mayo Clinic published this...

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

What is forgiveness?

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

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

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

What are the benefits of forgiving someone?

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

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

The Bible said this about Forgiveness…

Ephesians 1:7

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

Colossians 1:14

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

The Joy of Forgiveness:

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Prayer:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

1 Peter 2:6

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

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

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

It is only as Jesus said… John 3:3

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

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

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

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

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

Matthew 10:32

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

Conclusion:

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

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

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

Wednesday February 17th, 2021

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

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

Isaiah 14:12 The Fall of Lucifer

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

Jesus said… John 8:44

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

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

Ephesians 6:10-18

The Whole Armor of God

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

1 John 4:4

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Falcon Business Jet is a Dassault aircraft.

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

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

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

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

Ephesians 6: 10-11

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

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

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

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

In Context | Full Chapter (KJV)

Prayer:

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

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

Ephesians 2:8-9

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

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

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

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

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

Lord You have said:

John 4:14

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

Isaiah 55:1

EVENING: 

Matthew 6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Giving to the Poor and Prayer

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

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

Prayer:

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

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

Romans 1:4

New King James Version

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

Romans 6:19

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

Romans 6:22

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

But Christ made us His friends… John 15:15

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

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

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

Romans 5:5

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

1 Peter 1:16

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

  1. Romans 5:5

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

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

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday February 14,2021

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Galatians 5 (NIV)

Freedom in Christ

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

His Promise:

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

His Faithfulness:

Romans 8: 28-35

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

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

2 Timothy 1:7

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

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

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

Only Jesus Because He our Redeemer lives...

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

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

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

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

Trusting God and knowing Him leads to:

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

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

Ephesians 2:8

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

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

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

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

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

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

Romans 10:13 New King James Version (NKJV)

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

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

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

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

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

Just come to Jesus and open your heart to Him by saying, Lord Jesus I am a Sinner, and I want to be saved by Your Grace and to receive Your Holy Spirit in my life to change me and make me a child of Yours, Lord come into my heart and I will be a living temple for Your Spirit to dwell, Lord Jesus I thank You for Your Salvation and the privilege of coming in Your Holy presence. Amen.

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

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

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

Friday February 12,2021

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

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

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

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

Paul’s Vision and His Thorn

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

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

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

Isaiah 54:17

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

Prayer:

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

Thursday February 11,2021

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

Mark 12:41

The Widow’s Offering

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

Mark 12:42

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

Mark 12:43

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

An excerpt on C.T. Studd’s life:

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

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

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

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

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

            “Ask, Seek & Knock… >>>>>

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

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

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

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

Prayer:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

The Supremacy of Christ: 

For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 

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

 

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

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

 

1 Corinthians 3:16-23 

New King James Version (NKJV) 

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

 

Prayer: Conclusion: 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

 



Tuesday February 9,2021

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

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

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

TEXT:   Romans 8: 37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Revelation 22: 12…

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

NO. 1 Reason for HIS coming…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Romans 5:6

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

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

Think on this today:

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

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

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday February 7th, 2021

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

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

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

2 Peter 3:10

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

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

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

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

1 Peter 2:9 [Full Chapter]

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

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

His ‘Priceless-Gift’…

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

This is the Grace of God…

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

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

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

Therefore, being redeemed by the Blood…

Saturday February 6th, 2021

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

TEXT:                  Psalm 111:10

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

Commentary:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Matthew 24:14

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

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

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

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

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

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

How the First Nuclear Bomb Turned Sand to Glass

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Mark 13:24

The Return of Christ

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

TEXT: Matthew 6:3

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

 

The Lord said… Matthew 5:3

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

 

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

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

Matthew 25:15

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

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

Matthew 25 [Full Chapter]

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

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

 

Matthew 28: NASB

The Great Commission

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

The Final Message

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

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

 

Commentary:

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

 

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

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

 

Thanking the Lord for His Mercies and His Divine Redemption…

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

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

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

Text:  John 14:26 (NASB)

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

Commentary:

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

This is a fine example of…

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

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

Luke 19:17  (NKJV)

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

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

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

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

 Matthew 6:33-34

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

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

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

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

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

His Promise:

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

John 3:16 (NASB)

16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

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

Do not look for any ‘New’ Doctrine… all of what we need to know or will ever need are already contained in the Holy Bible. There is no need to add or modify the Word of God.

We cannot trust in ‘Hard work, ’ fame, wealth, physical appearances, and worst of all Pride all these can be gone in an instant. Only what is done in Christ will Last.

Prayer:

Father in Heaven in Jesus our Lord and savior we come. Lord Jesus You are on the Throne of Righteousness, and by Your intercession for us all, we seek Your divine Blessings and Guidance.  Lord grant us Your Peace and Your Favors to all including our Visitors as it is for Your Glory.  Lord by Your Power release those from the burdens of this world as You Lord Jesus is Preeminent. Lord let us use this day for Your Glory as we open our hearts to You and receive Your Divine Grace. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

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

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

John 10:10

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

No: 2. Seek Him and His righteousness first…

Matthew 6:33

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

Know this…

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

We are special…

2 Timothy 1:7

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

In summation:

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

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

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

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

They answered Him, “No.”

John 21:6

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

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

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

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

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

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

Genesis 11 New King James Version

The Tower of Babel

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

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

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

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

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

1 John 2:18

Deceptions of the Last Hour

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

1 John 2:22

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

1 John 4:3

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

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

Hebrews 13:6

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

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

We take so much for granted… Stop and think, going to the Lord, are we in an ‘Asking’ mode, or are we in a ‘Thanksgiving mode’? Knowing that God knows our needs before we ask, but he said, ask, why?
