          Do not let the demands of life use up your day, spend more time with Jesus…

Thoughts for the day:        

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.

Be aware of the slow leak, be conscious of what depresses you, confer with Jesus…

Remember when you were a child running down the street as fast as you could because there was a race to be win, and you we’re about to win and then the most horrible thing happened, you tripped and fell. The tears came falling and mom came running to you and cleaned up the wound and bandage you up. Then the smile returned. Your parents understood a little scrap, and infection could set in.

In the spirit the rules are the same. Galatians 5:9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough.

When you lie for instance to others and to yourself, it compromises your heart (spirit). At first you may say, it was nothing but infection in your heart has begun.

Jesus is wanting to walk this life out with you.  With him there is joy unspeakable and full of glory.

The Message of the Cross is still the One Refuge to Sinners, there is no escape, and all those living in sin and ‘enjoying-life’ just ask anyone if they are fulfilled? Emptiness is one of the leading cause of loneliness and for this reason, many turn to the pop-culture, the club-life, the casual relationships, the dead-end relationship and trending of our times led by the glitz, the glamour and the hi-life that eventually crashes bringing many to their knees and in a state of despair, leading to substance abuse and a life of loneness without real hope.

Like Paul we need to reach people that are here now as Paul did in the City of Corinth.

A Brief overview of Corinth can be found in our Resource section, this will give you a synopsis of the geographic, economic, trade and the lifestyle of Corinth during Paul’s ministry in Corinth. 

Our Lord Jesus came to save Sinners and He made it a point to talk with many including the woman at the well is Samaria.

Prayer: Jesus it was for our freedom that you set us free, thank You that You stand with us so we will not be subject to the yoke of slavery again. You have called us as kings and priest to be your ambassadors. No longer do you call us slaves but friends. Bless our Visitors, as we praise you in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus amen

    How to Be Sure of Your Salvation

    By Steven J. Lawson   •   August 2, 2010   •   Topics: Salvation

    According to the Bible, assurance of salvation rests on four unshakable pillars.

    After I said I was writing a book about how we can be sure we are going to heaven, she marveled, “You mean you can know that you are going to heaven?”

    Realizing God had opened a door for me to tell her about Christ, I reinforced that we can know for certain our eternal destiny, saying, “We can afford to be wrong about going to Sisters, Oregon, but not about going to heaven.”

    The truth is, we can be sure about where we will spend eternity. We can know with certainty that when we die, we will go to heaven. But how can we be sure? Many people struggle with the certainty of their salvation, especially new believers.

    How can we know where we stand with God? The Bible teaches that the assurance of salvation rests securely upon four unshakable pillars:

    Pillar 1: God Cannot Lie!

    First, assurance is based on the absolute trustworthiness of Scripture. Throughout the New Testament, we read God’s promises to save all who will believe upon His Son. The Bible says, “Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved.”(1) This is a promise! All who have committed their lives to Jesus Christ may have the firm confidence of salvation based upon the infallibility of God’s Word.

    Jesus said, “The one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out.”(2) If you come to Jesus with genuine repentance and faith, He promises that He will save you. We can know Jesus has received us because, quite simply, He said so! When the Bible speaks, God speaks. And what God said, He will surely do. He will save all who call upon Jesus Christ. You have His word on it.

    Pillar 2: Jesus Paid It All

    Second, assurance rests on the finished work of Jesus Christ. When Jesus died on the cross, He bore our iniquities, enduring God’s wrath, and cried out, “It is finished!”(3) By this, He meant that the full atonement for all our sins-past, present and future-has been made. His work of redemption now completed, our entire sin debt is paid in full.

    Just as salvation comes from believing in Christ alone, so does assurance. As we trust in Christ’s perfect sacrifice for our sins, the certainty of eternal life floods our hearts. No matter how great your sin, God’s grace is greater still. The Bible says, “Come now, and let us reason together. … Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They will be like wool.

    Pillar 3: The Great Convincer

    Third, assurance comes through the inward witness of the Holy Spirit. A divinely produced gift, assurance is bestowed by God’s Spirit to all true believers. It is the Holy Spirit’s ministry to convince our hearts of our salvation.

    In actuality, no preacher, evangelist, parent or friend can give us assurance. Neither can we work it up within ourselves. Only the Holy Spirit Himself can give us the absolute certainty of our eternal salvation.

    The Bible says, “We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit which He has given us.”(5) … “By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit.”(6) … “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.”(7) This means, the Holy Spirit who convicted, called and converted us also convinces us that we belong to Christ. It is the Spirit’s inward witness that persuades us of the genuineness of our salvation.

    Pillar 4: New Life in Christ

    Fourth, assurance comes through the evidence of a changed life. Ultimately, assurance is confirmed within us as we see God conforming us into the image of Jesus Christ. All who have been born again will see clear evidences of a new life in Christ. While we will never become perfect in this life, we will, nevertheless, experience a changed life. It is this inward transformation that provides strong confirmation of our salvation.

    The book of First John details what are the vital signs of our new life in Christ. The Apostle John writes, “We know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments.”(8) In other words, we may be certain that we know Christ as we see within us a desired and willing obedience to God’s Word.

    Likewise, John writes, other vital signs will follow: Love for other people,(9) love for God,(10) refusing the world,(11) understanding biblical truth,(12) righteous behavior,(13) opposition from the world(14) and answered prayer.(15) As we see this spiritual fruit produced in our lives, we may be confident that Christ lives within us.

    Here are the four sturdy pillars on which the assurance of our salvation rests. Giving “full assurance of hope”(16) regarding our personal relationship with Jesus Christ, these pillars provide unshakable confidence of eternal life.

    As I told the woman on the plane, we can be wrong about earthly directions but not about our eternal destiny. In our salvation we must be sure. Assurance of salvation is God’s blessed gift for all who believe: “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, in order that you may know that you have eternal life.”(17)

    Be absolutely sure!

              Can you change the future? Yes… how? Becoming a ‘New  Creation. find out here…

    We may not be able to change the future of the world, but we can change our future and we can also lead someone to change theirs too.

    If you were the richest person with youth, and a place of prominence in society, why would you want to change it?  The one fact that no one can avoid is… Mortality.  This is an issue no one wants to discuss. But it is inevitable that everyone will come to this point.

    Because of Jesus we will face it, but we will not partake of it. Because in Christ we have Eternal-Life.

    Now being that rich person with all the prerequisites of a ‘wonderful-life’ without Christ, this person is flat ‘Broke’ he is without a future.  And guess what? all his money will not buy him a place of Splendor.

    Let us define ‘Splendor’ it is described as…

    magnificent and splendid appearance; grandeur… We could list a few places, such as:

    The Taj Mahal, which is an outstanding place of beauty, but it is a tomb. Machu Picchi, an abandoned citadel, while these are two magnificent man-made places, yet they do not compare to the Grand Canyon, or the aurora borealis Northern light.

    With the lockdown a Japanese tourist waited months to get an opportunity to visit Machu Picchi after 7 months the government opened the ruins just for him to visit exclusively, fulfilling his desires of seeing this ancient abandoned city.

    Back to the subject of Mortality… The abandoned Inca City Machu Picchi was totally abandoned, what happened here? This was after to Spanish invasion. And we assume that the Spaniard brought a virus, similar to the Covid-19 that wiped out the population.

    Today as Covid-19 is still around and making the semblance of a resurgence, this pandemic is far-reaching to businesses, industry, governments, families and individuals.

    The lockdown and stay at home have created mental health, suicides, physiological issues and divorces etc.  The responsible parties for this Pandemic have not yet even made a statement of remorse. It is as this plague was intentional.

    As we write this real-life curse brought against mankind, the fallout of this will ultimately damage the one that inflicted the world with this scourge.

    It is time to read the labels of all Vitamins, supplements and any food stuff to be sure that the origin is not from the county that released the Covid-19 This is a well known fact that this scourge originated in China. While the Chinese CCP (Chinese Communist Party) even tried to pin the blame on the USA as the originator.  The one sure thing we must do is to avoid all edible items that bear the made in China label.

    This may not sound like a Daily-Devotional, but  we need to let all our brothers and sisters be aware of this. Now, addressing the issues of the isolation and effects of the lockdown, we suggest breaking from the daily routines, listen to praise Music, speaking with friends and families, reading the Bible by adopting a reading plan.  Do some research on how you can help others, regardless of any burnout cabin fever and other mood that can cause depression, remember that there is someone out there in the world that can use your help. Thing of the children around the work going hungry, without food and clean water. So, stop and Thank the Lord for His Mercies, His grace and His provision that you are able to be at home, avoid the news, but yet be aware of current events, make good choices and always invite the Lord to send His Holy Spirit to be indwelling in you and to share His Love.

    Philippians 1:6

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

    Always be confident of the above, and…

    Philippians 4

    New King James Version

    Be Anxious for Nothing; Think These Thoughts

    Therefore, my beloved and longed-for brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, beloved.

    Be United, Joyful, and in Prayer

    I implore Euodia and I implore Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord. 3 [a]And I urge you also, true companion, help these women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the Book of Life.

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

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

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

    Prayer:

    Heavenly Father in Jesus we come… Lord today we seek Your Divine Grace and Your Pease as we ask Your blessings on our Visitors and we thank You Lord for Your Providence. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

    Wednesday: October 28, 2020 

         When you get to Heaven and God ask you… “Who led you to me?” Tell Him. 

    While God knows everything, but such a question is not necessary. Just as Jesus asked Judas when He said…” Friend, why did you come?” Jesus already knew they came to arrest Him.  

     

    Our Lord likes to be interactive He knew the blind man wanted to see, but He did ask what would the blind mand wanted Him to do.  So, today as we come to Him let us ‘ASK’ and let us Thank Him for His Mercies, His Love, His Providence and His Divine Redemption. 

    Living for His will for you will be a whole, not a portion that is just for today. 

      

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

    Jesus the Bread of Life 

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

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

      

    EVENING:  

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

    John 15:16 Good News Translation (GNT) 

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

      

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

      

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

    Go to the Lord in prayers, seek His guidance, pray that his Holy Spirit will lead you. 

      

    We end this short dialogue by giving thanks to our Gracious Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ… 

    Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior, we come knowing that there’s no one above You and You are Supreme and Holy. We thank You Lord for Your Divine blessings upon each of our Visitors in Your Holy Name knowing that You are in our Midst. So, Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen

             Public opinion is of value, but God’s opinion is what matters above everything.

    Who can you Impress? Making an impression is what politician are good at.

    An impresario is one who organize musicals and plays. Making impressions are the main objectives of acting.  Jesus never acted to make an impression, and so did his disciples.  When Jesus chose his followers, he called ordinary individuals, he did not recruit high profile people. But high-profile individuals came to Him. We can never critique his disciples as simple men, they never acted to make impression, they were loyal, except for Judas who we could say was an actor as he so did even to the very moment of betraying the Lord.

    Betrayal and Arrest in Gethsemane

    Matthew 26

    47 And while He was still speaking, behold, Judas, one of the twelve, with a great multitude with swords and clubs, came from the chief priests and elders of the people.

    48 Now His betrayer had given them a sign, saying, “Whomever I kiss, He is the One; seize Him.” 49 Immediately he went up to Jesus and said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” and kissed Him.

    50 But Jesus said to him, “Friend, why have you come?”

    John 18:6

    As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.

    Imagine that the contingent of soldier of over 300 and they all fell backward as Jesus said…

    ’I AM HE”

    Today as we affirm that… we will never be ashamed in trusting Jesus. He is forever faithful, and He knows our needs even before we ask.

         Are you listening? stop and ‘Hear’ the calling of the Lord, Know Him today…

    Sometimes the ‘inner-voice’ which is always there as our mind is alert, this an inner-conversation with one-self, and is our conscience, a warning to be cautious.

    As we ‘confer’ in our mind, pondering the next steps and what to do next, let us pause and tune-in to the frequency of the Lord.  Access to the Lord’s frequency comes when we come to Him in prayer. Our prayers of salutation, Praise and our request(s) followed by thanksgiving, will be over in a couple of minutes. It is a good thing to just pause and ‘meditate’ for a moment before commencing our prayer. This will clear any clutter and be ready to communicate with the Almighty, knowing that we are in His Holy-Presence.

    Listening is a form of receiving, but in reality, it is giving … defined as giving our attention, our care and our God given resources. A Good physician is not necessarily the high profile doctor that is so busy that his waiting room is filled with patients, why? he probably is treating the patients in a ‘production-line’ format, and not listening to what the patient is experiencing.  So, his practice is more on the ‘gut-feel’ and assumption of what ails the person not realizing that a percentage of patients suffer from some form of symptomatic ailment… defined as: having the characteristics of a particular disease but arising from another cause.

    Principle:

    We have the Covenant of Grace in Christ Jesus our Lord.  The promise of God is ‘Sacred’, and His Word never changes as he is the same yesterday, today and forever.

    Jesus who is the Son of God and is God Incarnate as he Yeshua/Jehovah/Jesus was before Abraham, known as the father of Nations.  His promise of Redemption by His Divine Resurrection and Ascension to the Right Hand of His Father is our Intercessor and our Lord and Savior. Praise Him for His Divine Power.

    Romans 8: 26-39

    Our Victory in Christ

    26 In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; 27 and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

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

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

    Legalism is needed  in business; Grace is needed in our lives.

    Large law firms change a per hour fee of $2,000, but the charges for an hour could be well over this as the bill you for ancillary charges, copier, legal assistants  and other charges

    . This the cost of procuring legal representation can be costly. I recall having a case in court where my name was forged on a supposedly settlement agreement, my attorney said I was going to lose the case. We are at lunch with our opponent seated next to our table, then in came my son with a blown up picture of my signature and the signature on the forged document, I said to my attorney, let me approach the judge and withdraw my case to be refiled as a fraudulent charge, versus a civil claim, I said it loud enough to let my opponent and his attorney hear. We resumed the hearing, and just as I was about to ask the judge, she said, she would like to hear the testimony of my opponent , then my personal testimony, and she would then declare a decision. We both agreed. I should have dismissed my attorney then and there. The Proceedings continued and the judge said, I believe the testimony of me the plaintiff and she declared a judgment against the defendant, so I won. Here we saw, truth, fairness and wisdom of a judge that went on to be chief judge on the district.

    We are told to turn the other cheek and let them take your cloak too.

    Blatant robbery must be confronted, and larceny must be stopped. But as the Lord said, we are to forgive. This person tried to reestablish a working relationship, but refused, but I forgave him as the Lord commanded.

    So, today we can say… Lord Your Grace is sufficient.

    Conclusion: Colossians 1: 9-18

     Preeminence of Christ

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

    15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

    18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

    John 16: 24 New International Version (NIV)

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

    Jesus said in Faith ASK, and Ask in His Name with Thanksgiving, believing you will be receiving your petition…

    EVENING:

    Action/Coming to our Lord:

    1 Peter 5:7 New International Version (NIV)

    Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

    Prayer:  Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord Jesus today we thank You for this privilege of being in Your Holy presence. Lord Jesus as You are our Mediator we ask You for Your divine blessings on our Visitors and us all… Lord we thank You and we go in Faith knowing that we have Victory in You because greater is You in us than those of this world.  Lord Your Divine Grace and Your Redemption provide a bountiful future because…all things work together for good as we love You Lord Jesus. To You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

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

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

    Luke 24 New King James Version

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

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

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

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

    Commentary:

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

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

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

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

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

    John 16:9-10

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

    John 16:17

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

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

    Prayer: 

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

    Saturday  October 24th, 2020

    Let us do something different today… Call a friend and ask, ‘Is there anything I can do for you today?”

    “Trick or treat”… making a call just to ask; ‘Is there anything I can do for you today?’ this is quite an unusual way to start a conversation. This was how my new neighbor a 94-year-old gentleman greeted me the first time we met.

    Halloween is an end of harvest event before ‘All Saints day’, a Catholic tradition. Halloween is a satanic event, disguised as a way to lure children to the dark side. All Saints day is a day set aside to visit the cemeteries paying homage to the dead. 

    The use of spooky props and ghoulish images were placed in the fields by farmers during harvest time to scare away people stealing fruits and crops. This was a tradition in China.  Just like the garden scarecrow that is supposed to scare away birds from damaging the crop, but birds are smart, and they use the scarecrows as a place to perch and eat what they take from the garden.

    Placing my plastic Owl to scare away bird from my Koi pond work for the first week, but after a while, the bird found out this was just an ornament and the came and even perched atop of the fake Owl.

    So, as we see birds are not that dumb.

    One of the most poignant memory I have is of a dove standing next to its mate that was ran over by a vehicle, this little bird refused to fly away. This is what I refer to as ‘True-Love’.

    As we end the week… Thank the Lord for His Divine providence and give Him First Place in our lives.  Remember that He moves in a Divine way and not a mysterious way.

    So today we declare our Lord Jesus as our Preeminent Sovereign Eternal Savior who is God in One of His Holy Trinity…

    John 1 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

    The Deity of Jesus Christ

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

    The Incomparable Christ

    13 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

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

    Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord thank You that we can boldly come in Your Holy presence as You gave us this privilege. Lord we know that You show no preference and You have said… Call to You, and You will answer, and show us great and mighty things, which we do not know. Lord Your Grace and Your Sovereignty we acknowledge and we go in Faith with confidence of this very thing that You who began a good work in us will complete it until that day, this is of You Lord Jesus. Lord bless our Visitors to the three websites of English, Chinese and Spanish, Lord we are privileged to serve You for Your Glory. Lord be with us all as we pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You are the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    Thought for the day… Consider the Supremacy of our Lord Jesus yet He never required the Pomp and ceremony as required by the so called kings and monarchy of man, our Lord said come to Him Boldly, what a privilege He gave us.

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

    As we see countries like Venezuela and Cuba fallen into socialism and totalitarian dictatorships, the belief is more of less built around a Marxist governance. On the other hand, there are countries that are dominated by a war lord dictator that oppresses his people and never wanted them to prosper.

    This brings us to the three ditch diggers, when one won the lotto, the other two came and said. ‘Comrade now that you won the lotto, you must share it with your communist comrades”, he responded by saying, “not trues, because he was no longer a communist as he was now a capitalist”

    Margaret Thatcher the former Prime Minster of Britain one said, ‘The socialist will soon run out of other people’s money”.

    Jesus said…

    John 10:28

    And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

    John 10:29

    My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

    So, today let us have victory in Christ, because…

    2 Corinthians 5:17

    Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

    Know this… being saved by God’s Grace through Jesus Christ, and being saved, this does not mean we can continue to sin.

    Because the word of God said to, so this is like…

    A fool doing some stupid thing a second time is like a dog going back to its vomit.Proverbs 26:11 

    Romans 6:1

    Dead to Sin but Alive in Union with Christ] What shall we say, then? Should we continue to live in sin so that God's grace will increase?

    1 John 3:6

    So, everyone who lives in union with Christ does not continue to sin; but whoever continues to sin has never seen him or known him.

    1 John 3:9

    Those who are children of God do not continue to sin, for God's very nature is in them; and because God is their Father, they cannot continue to sin.

    Prayer:

    Heavenly Father we have Victory in You through Jesus our Redeemer our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity. Lord Jesus today we come and thank You for the Power of Your Grace as we in Faith combine Your Grace with our Faith in You, knowing that You are on the Throne of Righteousness. Lord We thank You for the privilege of serving You; and we thank You for our Visitors, Lord let our Visitors be Blessed and grant them Your Peace. Lord we give You our Praises and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore.  Amen.

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

    John 15:15

    I no longer call you servants because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.

    In business the Non-Disclosure Agreement is a pre-requisite before the exchange of information. God through Jesus revealed all to us. As said by President Ronald Reagan…”Between the covers of this book ‘The Bible’, it contains all the answers we need”.

    Such a broad statement ‘of all you need to know’ are contained in the Holy Bible. As said by a Nasa Board Member, the answer to launching the first Satellite after Sputnik, after several failed launches, they went to the Bible and found the answer. The Word of God is alive, and many times we may read a passage and the meaning will be clearer when read a second time.

    Spiritual blindness is similar to physical blindness. Jesus spoke by many parables. A parable is defined as a short story depicting the moral of the allegorical event. The Word of God is revealed when the equation consists of: Faith + God’s Word = Revelation and Discernment; achieved when the Holy Spirit is present.

    Ephesians 1: 7-14 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

    The Blessings of Redemption

     In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us. In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him 10 with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth. In Him 11 also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, 12 to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory. 13 In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.

    Matthew 11:28-30 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

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

    Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord thank You that we can boldly come in Your Holy presence as You gave us this privilege. Lord we know that You show no preference and You have said… Call to You, and You will answer, and show us great and mighty things, which we do not know.

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

    The event of Balak and Balaam…

    Numbers 22

    Balak Summons Balaam

    22 Then the Israelites traveled to the plains of Moab and camped along the Jordan across from Jericho.

    Now Balak son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to the Amorites, and Moab was terrified because there were so many people. Indeed, Moab was filled with dread because of the Israelites.

    Balak said:

    “A people has come out of Egypt; they cover the face of the land and have settled next to me. Now come and put a curse on these people, because they are too powerful for me. Perhaps then I will be able to defeat them and drive them out of the land. For I know that whoever you bless is blessed, and whoever you curse is cursed.”

    10 Balaam said to God, “Balak son of Zippor, king of Moab, sent me this message: 11 ‘A people that has come out of Egypt covers the face of the land. Now come and put a curse on them for me. Perhaps then I will be able to fight them and drive them away.’”

    12 But God said to Balaam, “Do not go with them. You must not put a curse on those people, because they are blessed.”

    They came to Balaam and said:

    “This is what Balak son of Zippor says: Do not let anything keep you from coming to me, 17 because I will reward you handsomely and do whatever you say. Come and put a curse on these people for me.”

    18 But Balaam answered them, “Even if Balak gave me all the silver and gold in his palace, I could not do anything great or small to go beyond the command of the Lord my God. 19 Now spend the night here so that I can find out what else the Lord will tell me.”

    20 That night God came to Balaam and said, “Since these men have come to summon you, go with them, but do only what I tell you.”

    Balaam’s Donkey

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

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

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

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

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

    “No,” he said.

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

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

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

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

    37 Balak said to Balaam, “Did I not send you an urgent summons? Why didn’t you come to me? Am I really not able to reward you?”

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

    10 Then Balak’s anger burned against Balaam. He struck his hands together and said to him, “I summoned you to curse my enemies, but you have blessed them these three times. 11 Now leave at once and go home! I said I would reward you handsomely, but the Lord has kept you from being rewarded.”

    12 Balaam answered Balak, “Did I not tell the messengers you sent me, 13 ‘Even if Balak gave me all the silver and gold in his palace, I could not do anything of my own accord, good or bad, to go beyond the command of the Lord—and I must say only what the Lord says’? 14 Now I am going back to my people, but come, let me warn you of what this people will do to your people in days to come.”

    Note that even the evil intention of Balak was overpowered by the Divine Grace of God, as Balak said… , as he said to Balaam… For I know that whoever you bless is blessed, and whoever you curse is cursed.”

    The conclusion is: Stay faithful and remain in the Light… In spite of the inducements offered for Balaam to curse the children of Israel, he responded by saying; “But I can’t say whatever I please. I must speak only what God puts in my mouth.”

    What has God placed in your heart or mouth? One thing for sure we must never appease those that will harm God’s people.  

    Father today as have directed all including the donkey and Balaam, Lord direct us too. Lord Jesus bless our Visitors and us all as we thank You for your Divine Grace. We Praise You Lord and give You Preeminence in all. In Your Holy Name we pray… Amen.

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

    Kodak® The Iconic Film maker. founded by George Eastman 132 years ago, they stuck to chemical Films. Imagine this pioneer had to  file for bankruptcy, why? Going beyond the Product Lifecycle was the reason. The amazing thing is, Kodak owned the Patent for Digital Photography, but never exploited it. Hence, they went bankrupt in the film making business. This was the classic case of doing nothing.

    Losing focus and continuing to do the same thing, expecting a different result leads to going beyond the product life cycle is like being the largest manufacturers of Slide-Rules. While few may still use slide rules, automation made it obsolete.

    So, Losing Focus of our Lord, we will falter… and drift to the wrong side. In Christ there is no expiration date, no limits to the life cycle and in Him we have Eternal Life.  Because He said…  

    John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

    In Him we have Joy, as Joy is a major theme of a life in Christ. It was the Steel Magnate Andrew Carnegie that said...’There is little success where there’s little laughter’.

    Today’s society confirms the adage of… Image is everything; An image is the vivid representation of an individual or a brand, as a powerful tool to impress and sell to the masses for profit.

    While every publication goes to the Best-Seller’s list, yet the Holy Bible is the Best seller of all times.

    So, Joy = Laughter and times of splendor… So, the upcoming Christmas, which will be addressed as ‘Merry’ Christmas, it is all because of the Good News of Christ coming and by His Grace He redeemed us with His Blood.  There were no Joy at Calvary, except for the devil thinking that the death of our Savior was a triumph for him. But our Redeemer conquered death and gave us Eternal Ife through Him.// Amazing GRACE.

    Prayer:

    Heavenly Father… Lord Jesus as we acknowledge Your Abiding Grace, as Job said… I know my Redeemer lives; Yes Lord, we too shall see You. Lord bless our Visitors and as we go in Faith knowing that all things work together for good, as we love You Lord. To you be the Power and the Glory forever…. Amen.

     The ‘Discovery’ of Electricity and the Light Bulb. We say ‘Discovery’ as nothing is ‘invented’ by man.

    *One of our better invention would be Air Conditioning as this story is
    being written from Florida in the summer, therefore, we are conveniently
    remembering the inventor of the Air Conditioner=E2=80=A6.He was a practical=
     man that also said this: "I fish only for edible fish, and hunt only for edible
    game even in the laboratory." - Willis Haviland Carrier on being practical.=
    *While there were men and women that achieved =E2=80=98 Greatness=E2=80=99 n=
    one of them could achieve the =E2=80=98 Real=E2=80=99 Greatness on their own, we will discuss this in the next paragraph.  Looking of what we oftentimes refer to inventions that
    changed our world=E2=80=A6in reality man never changed the world, we only make
    changes to the modes of how we do things and how we conduct our everyday
    living to what we call =E2=80=98 standard=E2=80=99 and this standard has given them wealth
    and to many a =E2=80=98 wealth of ills=E2=80=99.*
    *The invention of products that gave us cancer, e.g.: Cigarettes, and many
    things that are additive with life threatening outcomes are mostly
    man-made.

    While the best advise we can get is to do all things in
    moderation, back in the Old Testament great men like King Hezekiah, David,
    Solomon while they had the protection of God, they did however over-reached
    into their excesses, why because they were all Man=E2=80=A6 and so are we.*

    *Some of the grandest Estates dotting our country were built by industry leaders, Vanderbilt=E2=80=99s Biltmore, the Hearst=E2=80=99s Castle, and many more, including Bill Gates, Michael Dell, and some that have recently vacated by Candy Spelling, Frank Sinatra, etc. Age and Mortality is the equalizer to all of us, and regardless of the wealth and fame, we all return to dust,
    but again we must be reminded of this fact=E2=80=A6 =E2=80=98 Because we are=
     all created in His likeness, we will live forever, and this includes all rich and famous,
    and those of ill-repute that gave mankind their atrocities, such as Hitler
    and many still living. *

    *The second Act of life, ACT-II is the equalizer, and this equalizer is God Given, and from this Equalizer we are really able to achieve True =E2=80=98 Greatness=E2=80=99 The Good News is=E2=80=A6 that this Equalizer is=  Free, it is a Gift of God,; endowed by our Father through His Son Jesus, the Christ, His chosen One, Jesus who is God in One of His Holy Trinity.  *

    *Many of us in our daily quest to achieve greatness or just
    =E2=80=98'jogging-in-place=E2=80=99 maybe we are too busy to stop and contemplate why God
    endowed this Gift to us.  He gave us His Gift 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, God sent His Son to Redeem us by His Blood.

    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.

    Be sure you do not get Pruned, if we do not bear fruit, the Lord prunes the branches. Remember we are the branches growing through Him…

    Look around, the trees and God’s palette of His great landscape given us. The wonder of a little tree that can lift sidewalks, tilt a building, loosen a bridge, and still bear lots of fruits, this is God’s design at work.

    What compares to a hummingbird that travel thousands of miles south to nest in the winter and then returning home. This little bird flies thousands of miles, our man-made micro drones can mimic them, but it falls out of the sky after an hour or so…

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

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

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

    In life our capacity is much like the tank of the vehicle.  We consume three meals, or the equivalent to a good intake of a balanced diet. But over-eating is dangerous to our health. And as it is said, ‘everything in moderation’ Too much of one thing can be good for nothing… meaning we cancel the benefits by overindulging.  Therefore, our Needs are what the Lord will provide, our Wants may be too lofty, and getting it can be harmful.

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

    We wrote about the couple that were faith church-goers, the husband got a high-paying job and they quit church, the pastor went to see them before the Sunday service, only to meet them getting read to leave the house. Pastor said, we miss you at church, the answer was, sorry, we are late for our golf game,

    It is like the priest, that called in sick that he could not conduct the Sunday mass, but he drove out to the country club, on his first drive he made a long distance Hole-in-One, unfortunately, he could not tell anyone about his amazing experience.

     A humorous story… An atheist was walking through the woods. "What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!" he said to himself.

    As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him.

    He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing in on him.

    He looked over his shoulder again, and the bear was even closer.

    He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and raising his right paw to strike him.

    At that instant the Atheist cried out, "Oh my God!"

    Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent.

    As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky.

    "You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident."

    "Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"

    The atheist looked directly into the light, "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a Christian?"

    "Very well," said the voice.

    The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed.

    And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head and spoke:

    "Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen."

    As we strive to be more productive, let us remember the message from:

    Philippians 4:11

    I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. In Context

     Philippians 4:12

    I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. In Context 

    Going to the Lord…

    Father in Heaven, in Jesus we come… You have said whatever we ask in Your Name, we should believe that we have received it. Lord we thank You for our Needs, and Lord let us define our ‘Wants’ as they should be to have a zeal to serve You. Lord we gather here in Your Holy Presence with our Visitors as we thank You for Your Divine Providence upon us all. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus… Amen

    Praise:

    My list of Weakness = Max

    From whom do we get our strength?

    The food we eat will provide fuel for our bodies for a limited time…  The Holy Spirit provides all our strength.

    The little chorus… Yes, Jesus loves me, for the Bible tells me so,

    As originally published in 1860, it appeared in three stanzas, as follows:

    Jesus loves me—this I know,
    For the Bible tells me so;
    Little ones to him belong,—
    They are weak, but he is strong.

    Jesus loves me—loves me still,
    Though I'm very weak and ill;
    From his shining throne on high,
    Comes to watch me where I lie.

    Jesus loves me—he will stay,
    Close beside me all the way.
    Then his little child will take,
    Up to heaven for his dear sake.
    [2]

    Hymn by William Batchelder Bradbury

    This to me was the cornerstone of Sunday School as a kid. It is as contemporary today as it was 160 years ago. God’s Word of John 3:16 and the little Chorus are still the two most important messages of our time.

    John 3:16

    New International Version

    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.

    Hebrews 9:27

    Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,

    We face temptation constantly, and we must remember that to sin we are creating Double Jeopardy. Which is a second prosecution for the same offense after acquittal or conviction or multiple punishments for same offense.

    Albert Einstein is widely credited with saying “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results”.

    Hebrews 9:26-28  (NIV)

    26 Otherwise Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world. But he has appeared once for all at the culmination of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself.27 Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, 28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

    Our Lord came and Paid-It-All and by His Covenant, His ‘Priceless’ Gift sets us apart when we receive His Gift.

    Jesus said… John 14:1-3 (NKJV)

    The Way, the Truth, and the Life

    14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

    The Bible said… There will be no condemnation to us all who are in Christ Jesus:

    Romans 8 (NKJV)

    Free from Indwelling Sin

    8 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 

    Principle: Romans 8: 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

    His Promise / His Faithfulness:

    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.

    Action/Coming to our Lord:

    Romans 8:29

    For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren.

    Conclusion: 

    Don’t be discouraged about the outlook of the coming year, the press constantly publishes a perplexing anxiety driven news, why? Because ‘Bad-News’ sells paper.   The Good News is that Jesus is Sovereign, He is Eternal, and He loves us! and above all Jesus died and Rose Triumphantly and conquered death by taking all of our Sins on the Cross. 

    Are you ready for His return? Today His Grace abounds, and His Salvation is readily available to be received. 

    So come to Him, and pray… Lord Jesus I am a Sinner, and I repent of my sin by accepting Your ‘Priceless-Gift, Lord Jesus Your Grace I receive and in You I place my trust. Lord direct my path as I seek a closer walk with you my Lord. I Pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, Amen.

    Prayer:

    Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus thank You for coming and Thank You for Your Divine Redemption; Lord we thank You for our Visitors and the privilege of serving You Lord for Your Glory.  Lord we Praise You and we seek Your divine guidance as we go in Faith knowing that You will return Lord Jesus. In Your Holy name we Pray Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and Forevermore… Amen.

    Praise:

    Spread the Joy or receive His Joy today… it is all around us. Yesterday is gone, and today is a new day, a day of discovery, a day of renewal, and day of restoration. Remain in faith, keep praying, and know that he heard you and has granted your desire as you delight yourself in Him.

    Psalm 37:4

    Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart.

    Good to know… God said this of David:

    Acts 13:22

    After removing Saul, he made David their king. God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.’

    So, today as we too are like David… But we must know that God sees us from the inside out. And David repented and truly as we read David’s Prayer of Repentance…

    Psalm 51 -- Create in Me a Clean Heart, O Lord

    How did David deal with this terrible fall from grace? The ascription to Psalm 51 reads,

    "For the director of music. A psalm of David. When the prophet Nathan came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba."

    This psalm provides some tremendous insights into David's spiritual recovery from a place of arrogance and callousness towards God's voice. I encourage you to read the psalm right now, then we will look at a few verses in particular.

    Pleading for God's Mercy (Psalm 51:1-2)

    "1Have mercy on me, O God,
    according to your unfailing love;
    according to your great compassion
    blot out my transgressions.
    2Wash away all my iniquity
    and cleanse me from my sin." (Psalm 51:1-2)

    Quoting Churchill… Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen...Winston Churchill

    All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope... Winston Churchill

    Is our freedom challenged?  Yes, in many places, Christians are being persecuted and even killed, thank to our Lord that we have Freedom of Worship in many countries and many are still coming to Jesus.

    Action/Coming to our Lord: Ephesians 1:7 NKJV

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

    Ephesians 2:8 (NKJV)

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

    Prayer: Heavenly Father as we start the day, we thank You in Jesus for Your Grace and Your faithfulness. Lord be with us and let Your blessing be upon our Visitors and grant each us Your Favors as it is all to your Glory Lord. We Pray in Your Holy Name and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    Streaming video is a greater portion of how we get data, watch movies, etc., but in a severe thunderstorm it usually goes offline. We can talk with God under any conditions, no texting, typing, or connections needed… just say; Lord Jesus, here I am…

    The chorus… ’Just as I am without one Plea” often sung at the end of the Billy Graham Crusades, the London newspapers made comments that the number of people coming to the Alter-Call was a result of the emotional tone of the Chorus, and not the message.  Then Billy ordered that they suspended singing the song at the end of his sermons, the crowd kept coming and this quieted the critics. Over the58  years of the Graham Crusades,  the Rev. Billy Graham preached at 417 crusades in 185 countries and territories worldwide, reaching 84 million people face to face and a total of 215 million by satellite feeds.

    Today, Streaming Video is almost mainstream, as the Broadcast TV Networks are so polarized with political views and the news are more a commentary that reporting the News.

    Video of Billy Graham n Brisbane, Australia… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuNFAB4mTn8

    Thoughts for the Day: The U.S. Marine’s Motto… The Marine motto "Semper Fidelis" means "always faithful" in Latin   Let us apply Semper Fidelis to our Lord who made all things possible.

    Our Creator endowed us with ‘Free-Will’ and gave us ‘Freedom of choice’. In addition to the qualities of; Sincerity, honesty, loyalty and be respectful… the ‘key’ word is: Forgive, and the overriding factor is ‘Love’

    Do you think that God allowing us to have ‘Free-will’ was too trusting of humans?  As said, the true-test of man is in dealing with success.  King David went through a phase when he abused his success by putting the husband of Bathsheba to the frontline to be killed. Saul abused his monarchy that made God removed the anointing.  So, gaining the Providence of our Lord comes with great responsibility.

    There is a story told of a couple who attended church regularly, they struggled financially and regularly asked for prayers, eventually the husband landed a new job and suddenly they were absent from church. The pastor went by their house on a Sunday morning, as he drove up the couple were leaving their house, the pastor said, hello we miss you at church so I came by to see is all’s well, the couple said, sorry we are late for our golf game at the country club and we cannot stop.  Here is an example of how the providence of our Lord was mistaken by this couple that chose to abandon the faith in favor of living a worldly lifestyle. 

    Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:9-11

    As the Text above instructs us to be faithful stewards of God’s Grace, let us be aware that God’s Grace come in various forms. 

    As Love is mention 533 times in the New King James Bible. Love knows no boundaries…

    “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who lovethem.

    Luke 6:34-36 

    Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son, will be with us in truth and love.

    Ephesians 2:8-9  We are saved by Grace...
    8-9 For it is by God's grace that you have been saved through faith. It is not the result of your own efforts, but God's gift, so that no one can boast about it.

    Conclusion
    Let us put aside all doctrine that are not of our Lord…

    Doctrine is a set of rules, and practicing doctrine is almost bordering on Superstition.  Superstition is often dismissed as ‘Old Wives’ tale’ yet in the human trait the world is full of many that think that their righteousness can save them.

     Galatians 2:21 Good ews Translation (GNT)

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

    1.      All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God…

    2.      We cannot say we are without sin

    3.      If we do we make a liar of our Lord Jesus

    4.      We cannot earn our way to His Kingdom

    5.      No one comes to the Father unless through Jesus

    His Promise / His Faithfulness:  We are one of Christ’s, why? We were purchased at a price… by His Blood, He made us a Royal Priesthood,   1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come.  Lord today as we go in faith, we seek Your Divine Grace and Your Providence with the knowledge that we must be good stewards of Your Grace. Lord thank You for our Visitors and be with each of us as we look to You knowing that Your Faithfulness abounds in our lives. Lord let our endeavors be realized for Your Glory. In Your Name Lord Jesus we pray and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    What compares to a hummingbird that travel thousands of miles south to nest in the winter and then returning home. This little bird flies thousands of miles, our man-made micro drones can mimic them, but in fact, drones run out of charge in about 25 minutes.

    So many things we take for granted, the Bees and the honey they produce.  Honey found in theTutankhamun tomb and Honey found that is about 5,500 years old — were discovered in the tomb of a noblewoman in Georgia, not far from Tbilisi. They say honey never expires.

    Maybe the Hot Dog sausages from the supermarket will last a hundred years… hopefully this food item is digestible and will not outlast the old jar of honey.

    Factoid… Your heart beats about 100,000 times in one day and about 35 million times in a year. During an average lifetime, the human heart will beat more than 2.5 billion times.

    Nothing compares to the creation of the Lord…

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

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

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

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

    His Promise:

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

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

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

     Jesus said, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven”. Matthew 19:13-15 

    His Faithfulness:

    2 King 6: 16-18  So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 18 So when the Syrians came down to him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, and said, “Strike this people, I pray, with blindness.” And He struck them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.

    Conclusion:

    In the real whole many of us are facing trying times, the pressing needs for financial help, relationships, parents concerned about new school curriculum that are imposing life-style changes into the early stage education process, and personal health issues, even some  Churches are compromising on the definition of marriage, No one is immune to any of these circumstances. But we can have our Lord on our side, just like Elijah’s realization of the Power of God. 

    Psalm 103

    Of David.

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

    Prayer:

    Heavenly Father in Jesus we come and give you our Praises, for Great is Your Faithfulness… Lord Jesus today as we bring You the petition of releasing Your favors upon our Visitors. Lord we Lift You Up on High and Give You the Glory. Lord Jesus in Your precious name we pray, and to you is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    Roots Lift Sidewalk | Giroud Tree & LawnLook around, the trees and God’s palette of His great landscape given us. The wonder of a little tree that can lift sidewalks,  tilt a building, loosen a bridge, and still bear lots of fruits, this is God’s design at work.

    God’s Word is for me and you, it is alive, and it is as contemporary today as it was 1,406 B.C. (3,423 Years ago,)

    The Bible compiled around 3,423 years ago, is still the best-selling book of all times.

    There is something about this Holy Book that place it on the top seller list of all times.  Is it because of human’s quest to find answers? The Bible over the years a provided comfort, a source of assurance and pointing the way to God’s kingdom.

    There are many ‘self-help’ books, life-management series, etc., most will tell you to set a goal, and how to achieve your mission. The Bible is the best-selling book of all times… and it is full of ‘secrets’ that are revealed.  The Bible is a storehouse of knowledge, it reveals how to deal with success, how not to take the ‘shortcuts’ in life, but it also reveals the secret of overcoming, Adversities, how to gain ‘Victory’ and it also affirms the Promises of our Lord.  Some may dispute this as the bible said… things like, if it were to record the things that our Lord Jesus did, even the whole world could not contain it?  How could Jesus\ 33 years on earth and His actions could not be contained even in the whole world? Let us step back FOR A MOMENT AND LOOK AT THE Galaxy… how many billions are out there in the ‘Milky-Way’, our most powerful telescopes and probes are just touching the tip of the universe.

    The fastest we can travel is The Apollo 10 crew; Thomas Stafford, John W. Young and Eugene Cernan achieved the highest speed relative to Earth ever attained by humans; [citation needed] 39,896 km/h (11.1 km/s, 24,790 mph, approximately 32 x speed of sound, approximately 0.0037 percent of the speed of light). The record was set 26 May 1969.So, our best is not enough, at 32 times the speed of sound and a fraction of the speed of light we cannot do what Jesus did. He ascended at the speed of light, and so will we as in the twinkling of an eye we shall all be transformed into a new creation. Making this statement gives one goosebumps as many of us cannot board a roller-coaster, much less being propelled at the speed of light.  The ‘Mystery’ of what lies beyond the speed of light will be revealed to each of us.

    Conclusion: As we end the day, let us be prepared by reading the Best-Seller of all times… The Bible, search it and find His ‘Secrets’ and one of the most direct statement revealing one of His secret is…

     Matthew 6:33-34  (NIV)

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

    Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, Ephesians 2:19 NIV

    Invitation:

    Romans 8:11 New International Version (NIV)

    11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.

    His Assurance:

    Romans 5:11 New International Version (NIV)

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

    Matthew 26: 41 NIV

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

    Heavenly Father in our Lord Jesus we come to knowing that You are on the Throne of Righteousness and You intercedes for us, Lord, fill us with Your Holy Spirit and direct our pathways as we seek to be led by Your divine guidance as the Author and Finisher of our Faith. And by Faith we come and accept You Lord klnowi9ng that all things work for good to those that love You, and in acknowledgement of Your Word, that You will never leave us nor forsake us. Lord be with each of our Visitors and bless every one with Your providence. We pray this in Your Holy Name, and we give You the Praise and to you Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory, now and forevermore… Amen.

    Monday October 12, 2020

    Be sure you do not get Pruned if we do not bear fruit, the Lord prunes the branches. Remember we are the branches growing through Him…

    Jesus said He is the Vine… John 15

    Jesus Is the Vine—Followers Are Branches

    “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.

            Jesus said…’Ask’ and He also said…Stop asking, go and receive it, remember to thank Him. (Remember the one that returned and thanked Jesus, He appreciated it)

    When Jesus cleansed the ten….

    Luke 17:18

    17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”  

    When you ask, believe that you have received it…

    Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 

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

    Matthew 6: 7-8

    Jesus taught us how to pray

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

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

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

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

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

    Hebrews 10:23  (NIV) 

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

    Prayer:

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

    At Mid-October, it is almost time to start playing Christmas music… Be prepared for more than just Christmas. His second coming is eminent.

    **********************

    DAILY DEVOTIONALS

    Sunday October 11, 2020

    At Mid-October, it is almost time to start playing Christmas music… Be prepared for more than just Christmas. His second coming is eminent.

    As we said before… Time is fleeting by.

    John 3:18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

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

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

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

    So much we do not know…

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

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

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

    The theory of evolution has been touted that things do evolve, therefore let us see where the egg came from? 

    The Text today asked… How will we call on Him if we do not believe in Him? And how will anyone believe if there is no bearer of His Good news?  And how will they hear without the spreading of His Word? 

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

     

    The other mystery of Gods Providence… 

    Romans 9:23 

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

    Above all, whatever earthly possession He has provided us, beyond everything, Jesus did this for us all… 

    Romans 5:9 

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

    So, abiding by the Precepts of what Christ has done through His Divine Providence, we  

    Give thanks and Jesus our provider the Glory… 

    Romans 11:33-36  (NIV) 

    Doxology 

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

    So, we say… 

    Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  

    2 Chronicles 7:14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.   

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

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

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

    Why do we want to Mine the Moon? Are there Minerals that we do not have here on earth? Let us hope it is not Diamond, as more diamonds will make it valueless.  

    We can make diamond and some synthetic Diamonds are almost comparable to the real thing. But when it comes to Gold, this is one element we cannot reproduce.

    This is why in Heaven the streets are paved with Gold. And it is for this reason that it is not only good looking but is ‘NOT MAN MADE”  Because God said His Kingdom will not be touched by human hands.

    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 | 

     

    Proverbs 9:10

    “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

    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...

    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

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

    In Context | Full Chapter |

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

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

    1. The one and only God, who is holy, made us in his image to know him (Gen. 1:26-28).
    2. But we sinned and cut ourselves off from him (Gen. 3; Rom. 3:23).
    3. In his great love, God sent his Son Jesus to come as King and rescue His people from their enemies—most significantly their own sin (Ps. 2; Luke 1:67-79).
    4. Jesus established His kingdom by acting as both a Mediating Priest and a priestly sacrifice—He live a perfect life and died on the cross, thus fulfilling the law Himself and taking on Himself the punishment for the sins of many (Mark 10:45; John 1:14; Heb. 7:26; Rom. 3:21-26, 5:12-21); then He rose again from the dead, showing that God accepted His sacrifice and that God’s wrath against us had been exhausted (Acts 2:24, Rom. 4:25).
    5. He now calls us to repent of our sins and trust in Christ alone for our forgiveness (Acts 17:30, John 1:12). If we repent of our sins and trust in Christ, we are born again into a new life, an eternal life with God (John 3:16).
    6.  

    Action/Coming to our Lord:

    His Time and His plan for us is not ours, and we must trust Him in Faith and come to Jesus to be Assured of being named in the Lamb’s Book of Live, that can never be removed once entered.

    Prayer:

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

    Friday October 9th, 2020

    Yesterday…’Next-Day’ delivery was a ,major feat.  Today, same day delivery is almost here.   The future will be ‘Instant’ delivery, as proven by Jesus feeding the 5,000…

    Instantly, there were 5,000 ‘Boxed Lunches’  not delivered by Uber-or Grub hub… but by the Love, and compassion expressed by Jesus for the 5,000.  Today, He is focused on you and me, and His ‘Instant’ providence is there waiting for our request.

    Looking at the contingent of people following Jesus, today this is a major event, needing an organizer, crown-control, liability insurance, police, and healthcare groups. The Disciples were overwhelmed not knowing where to buy bread for such as large crown. But Jesus had the instant answer. And He has the same answer for us.

    Application: Life without God will end is despair, with God all things are possible, the writer of Ecclesiastes said that we do not know all the answers but we can trust God and we can enjoy the good gifts in our place and time. Remember we only live once, so we are to use every opportunity in the present time to serve our Lord and to live for Him, and He will provide the meaning of life when we make Jesus the Author and Finisher of our Faith.

    EVENING:

    Conclusion:

        Because the Bible is inspired by God, it is as contemporary as a 'Fresh-of-the-press' publication. Specially the book of Ecclesiastes that relates to our everyday lives.

    The writer of Ecclesiastes said all is folly and wealth does not bring happiness, here we see a former king that is described as one of the richest ever accepting a defeatist attitude to life. In fact, reading the Ecclesiastes it is a classic lesson of what is being thought by most professors that is a primer in 'how not to succeed and why you should not try'.

    But the Wisdom of King Solomon pointed to Wisdom that God gave to men and women…Ecclesiastes 2:26
    First we must remind our Jewish friends that Israel is in the plans of God’s sovereign plan and the Jews and Gentiles will all be saved in God’s Redemptive Plan. So today as a Jew, Hindu, Chinese, Japanese, Arab/Muslim, Persian, and all in Eastern Europe and the Americas. We all must come to know God’s Faithfulness, and that none is righteous, but through Faith in Jesus we attain the Righteous of our Lord and not through the Law.

     Romans 3:21-26 (NKJV)

     God’s Righteousness Through Faith

    21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all[a] who believe. For there is no difference; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, 26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus I come. Lord I thank You for letting me continue to bring Your Good News of Your Divine Salvation knowing that only what’s done for You my Lord will last,  Lord we are in Faith knowing that You have said no weapon formed against my people will prosper, Lord be with our leaders in the USA and Lord let Your Divine Intervention prevail as only on that day there will be a lasting Peace. Lord bless our many Visitors, let Your Providence flow to us all as we Pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    Law firms are cutting staffs, partners are being retired, it seems making a living in the practice of law may be challenged. But worse yet, in Heaven there will be no need for lawyers and many other…

    Commentary:  1230GS

    There will be no need for Lawyers, courts, Jails, Hospitals. Doctors, and many other professionals in God’s Kingdom; no; there will be no ‘zombies’… In God’s Paradise there are Transformed-Sanctified beings in Christ-Jesus our Eternal God-in-One of The Father.

    What a Privilege we have from our Lord:

    If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise" (Galatians 3:29).

    Today as we Worship our Lord and Savior let us stand and know we are in ‘Victory-lane’ and no one can ever displace you from that Podium. Imagine being a Gold Medal winner standing on the victory-podium representing your country? Guess what? In Christ you are representing more than your country, you represent Christ Jesus our Lord our Messiah… look up and give Him your Praises.

    The Best is Yet to Come! (But it will not be for everyone)  On the day of the Lord, all believers Born in His Holy Spirit as Jesus said to Nicodemus… “You must be born again” on that day believers will be caught up “to meet the Lord in the air” and the Holy Spirit will leave this earth at the same time with His believers.  What a journey to Glory that day will be for God’s chosen ones to a place free of sin forever.

    In Heaven there will be… No Baptist, no Catholic, no Presbyterians, Methodists, Lutherans, or even Calvinistic?  Why? Only Oneness in Christ will be present before our Lord.

     Lord, I believe Your promise that if I confess my sin, You are faithful and just and will forgive me my sin and cleanse me from all unrighteousness (from 1 John 1:9)

    You may have a PhD in theology, you may even be a pastor of a large mega church or even the Pope, and unless we are ‘Born-Again’ there is no place for you. We did not make this up, Jesus said… “You must be Born-Again”; 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.” John 3:2-4 (in Context) John 3 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations

    John 3:7

    Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. John 3:6-8 (in Context) John 3 (Whole Chapter)

    Therefore, without our Lord, we will never complete the journey home to His Kingdom. Jesus said… No one comes to the Father except through Him, and He has promised one of two greetings: One is: Welcome home good and faithful servant, the other is: ‘Depart from me I never knew you’.

    This is a sacrifice that was ‘Predestined’ 700 years before Christ was born as prophesied in Isaiah 53,  2,687 Years ago. Our Creator endowed His Son to be our Redeemer.  The other pathway is affirmed by His statement… It is appointed unto man once to die then the judgment. So therefore we are not ‘gone’ when we die, and He has a pathway that our Lord has provided to His Kingdom, just as He described to the thief on the Cross…”Today you will be with me in Paradise”.  Our Lord Jesus suffered intensively to have died on the Cross for our Sins, just think our Messiah, the most High, King of kings crucified with two thieves, in the presence of His Disciples and His mother her son (His brother James) Why? Because without the ‘Shedding’ of Blood there is no Remission of Sin; Remission is a process of absolutionamnestyforgivenesspardonremittal

    Ephesians 2: 4-10   But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

    Pray…Lord Jesus Christ, I accept in faith that You came and died for my sins and by Your Blood of Atonement offered for me, my Lord I accept You and by Your Grace I am saved knowing that it is only by Your Blood that my sins are washed away, and by Your Grace extended to me that I can look to You my Savior and be filled with the Joy of Your Holy presence Jesus my Lord and Savior.  I commit my life and my soul to You my Lord Jesus and expect to spend eternity with You my Lord, I accept Your divine saving Grace now and pray this in Your Holy name Lord Jesus, Amen.

     If you prayed this prayer His Holy Spirit will find you and growing in Christ is a daily walk with Jesus… 

     Victory in Jesus.

    Living with health challenges, going home to be with the Lord at age 95, when you get there will you be the same old person with your aches and pain? Find out read more…

    What is the ideal age to be mature enough to know a little about life? Is it 21 or 29th? Or even 65 years old?

    No one knows for sure, how old we all will be in God’s Kingdom. For sure there will be no hospice, as the Word of God said, there will be no more tears.

    Revelation 21:4

    and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”

    Isaiah 25:8

    He will swallow up death for all time, And the Lord God will wipe tears away from all faces, And He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth; For the Lord has spoken.

    Why do we have challenges in our daily lives? Is there a force that likes to impede our progress?

    Focus:  The closer you get to the Lord the hard the devil will try to interfere with your walk with God…

    What is the goal in your life? Are you getting closer? Are you facing a moving goalpost?

    Thoughts for the day:  In live it seem like we are trying to hit moving targets, Only Jesus never changes.

    TEXT: John 1:12-13 New King James Version (NKJV)

    12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

    Commentary:

    Our Lord Jesus is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow… Today you can come to Him just like the blind or the leper who came to Jesus and asked to be healed. Sometimes when we ask for healing, we do not get it, but He gives instead something far greater.  We spoke of Stephen who looked up and saw Jesus standing at the Right-Hand of the Father, and Jesus did not offer to save Stephen, but instead He was welcoming Stephen Home.

    Acts 6:14-15 Good News Translation (GNT)

    14 We heard him say that this Jesus of Nazareth will tear down the Temple and change all the customs which have come down to us from Moses!”15 All those sitting in the Council fixed their eyes on Stephen and saw that his face looked like the face of an angel.

    Acts 7: The Stoning of Stephen

    56 “Look!” he said. “I see heaven opened and the Son of Man standing at the right side of God!”

    57 With a loud cry the Council members covered their ears with their hands. Then they all rushed at him at once, 58 threw him out of the city, and stoned him. The witnesses left their cloaks in the care of a young man named Saul. 

    59 They kept on stoning Stephen as he called out to the Lord, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!”

    The Bible said in the above text… Verse 15: 15 All those sitting in the Council fixed their eyes on Stephen and saw that his face looked like the face of an angel.  Acts 7: Verse 55 above also stated how Stephen …. 55 But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw God's glory and Jesus standing at the right side of God 

    The life of a Christians is to keep on loving one another, just as how Christ loves us (Unconditionally)  The story told by Jesus Himself of the ‘Good-Samaritan’ many religious leaders saw the beaten and robbed man lying on the sidewalk, some crossed over to the next side to avoid him, but the Samaritan stopped, and dressed the wounds of the man he then took him to the hotel and gave him a room and gave money to the clerk to cover the expenses, and even said if there were need for more cost he would pay on his return.  The religious leaders avoided the wounded man.  Notice the description of those who avoided the wounded man was ‘Religious’… So, what was Jesus teaching, being religious did not mean you are a better person, as religion cannot make you a good person, nor can religion save you.  Only the Blood of Jesus can save you and me.

    Ephesians 2:8-9

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

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

    Prayer:

    Father in Heaven in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come… Lord we thank You for Your Divine Grace and we thank You for Your love and the privilege of serving You Lord for Your Glory.  To You Lord Jesus we go in faith and thank You for our Visitors and we Praise You Lord. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    Addressing the future… our love for muscle cars, fast jets, beautiful homes, and a lifestyle that we call the America Dream, where will these be? For sure, we will not need any of these. As the Bible said, eyes have now seen nor can we imagine… Whatever it will be it will not be a downgrade.

     Corinthians 2:9

    but just as it is written, “Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, and which have not entered the heart of man, all that God has prepared for those who love Him.”

    Focus:  The Lord’s Unfailing Faithfulness, Unfailing Love, Unfailing Grace, and Eternal Redemption.

    Do not clutter your life with small-stuffs, the demonstration of the Jar filled with rocks that may be considered full, yet there is room for pebbles, and then it may be considered really full, but yet there is room for sand that now makes the jar totally full.

    Sand is the small stuff, if you were to pour the sand in first there would be no room for the Rock, nor the Pebbles.

    So, in life, stand on the Solid Rock, which is Christ, gather your families and friends (Pebbles) and leave room to think, to share and to move around by leaving out the small stuffs.

    Jesus overlooked our faults and by His Amazing-Grace He knew our needs and provided it all…

    Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. In Context | Full Chapter |

    Delight yourself in the Lord…

    Psalm 35:9

    Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord and delight in his salvation. In Context | Full Chapter | 

    Psalm 18:19 He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because He delighted in me.

    In Context | Full Chapter |

    I would rather be saying… my soul will rejoice in the Lord and delight in his salvation rather than be pounding sand for the rest of my time.  Because my Lord is Faithful, and He said that He will bring me into a spacious place by rescuing me; because He delights in those that hear His calling and go according to His great commission.

    Matthew 28: 16-20 (NIV) All powers are given to the Risen Savior…

    16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 

    The Great Commission

    19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

    The Fragrance of the Lord…

    Come to Jesus today; go to our Green Pasture page…www.goodnewsforever.org/store

     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.

    As we spread the Word of our Lord, His Fragrance will also surround us... If you had a choice of who to represent, assuming the choice was a Winner versus an unknown that could be a loser in the end, the obvious choice would be to go with the winner... The following words are what described our Lord Jesus when we choose HIM:

    • Victory
    • Triumph
    • Sovereignty
    • Joint-Heir
    • Providence
    • Goodness & Righteousness

    Remember our Lord also gave us a Sound-Mind with Power. Now all this goodness is wrapped up in one tidy package which Jesus called... Faith.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord today we Praise You and thank You Lord for Your Graciousness. Lord thank You for the privilege of serving You and having Visitors to our sites bearing Your Good Need for Your Glory. Lord we seek Your Divine guidance, and we seek Your blessings on our Visitors and Lord let there be just one that will come to know You today as the angels will celebrate in heaven. Lord we pray for the needs of all as we know that in You, we have Victory, and all things work together for good as we love You Lord. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the power and the glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    Think on this today:

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

    As we speak of the next industrial revolution, Artificial Intelligence, Self-Driving Vehicles, Peace in the Middle East, why are the politicians trying to re-invent the wheel?

    The Wheel was one of man’s discoveries… All that we claim to have ‘Invented’ were already created.

    While man was still living in caves and hunting, God made the ‘Trap-Door’ Spiders, see one in action here… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZH10-Jps47U

    Many things we have and use daily were accidently discovered…

    • Penicillin
    • Microwave
    • Teflon
    • Cosmic radiation
    • Vulcanized Rubber’
    • Coca-Cola
    • Radio Activity
    • Ninth-century Chinese alchemists made an explosive discovery in their quest to find an elixir for eternal life. They found out the hard way that mixing salt peter, sulfur, and charcoal is not a recipe for immortality; it makes gunpowder. 

    So, do not become distraught by the disappointment.  Look beyond and… find the greatest treasure.

     

    The Dead Sea Scrolls contain some of the earliest known pieces of the Bible, but they might never have been found if not for a group of Arab teenagers. In 1947, a band of young Bedouin goat and sheepherders were tending their flock near the ancient city of Jericho. While looking for a lost goat, one of the boys tossed a stone into a nearby cave and was shocked to hear what sounded like a shattering clay pot. When he went in the cave to investigate, he found several jars containing a collection of ancient papyrus scrolls. these artifacts are now considered to be among the most significant archeological discoveries of the 20th century.

    Look beyond reading the Bible and find Christ… His word reveals Jesus the Godhead…

    Romans 1:20

    For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

    Again, we refer to the Glory of the Lord, who is the Light within each of us…

    Ezekiel 1:28

     28 Like the appearance of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the brightness all around it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord.

    Today Jesus is calling, and He wants to save us all. Save us from what? the Wrath of God, because …” All have sinned and falls short of God’s Glory”

    Colossians 2:9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; 

    Isaiah wrote about Jesus about 2,765 years ag0, (over 700 years before Christ came 2,017 years ago) and He is Mighty to Save:

     Isaiah 63:1 Full Chapter 

    The Lord in Judgment and Salvation] Who is this who comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah, This One who is glorious in His apparel, Traveling in the greatness of His strength? — “I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.”

    Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord Jesus thank You for being our Redeemer and our Mediator as by Your Grace we have been saved and not of anything we do. Lord be with our Visitors and us all as in Your Name Lord Jesus we thank You for Your Providence, and Your Love. Lord we love You and look to that day when we shall see You Lord. To You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    DAILY DEVOTIONALS

    Sunday October 4th, 2020

    Do not let the ‘New-Normal’ deter attending corporate worship. Because in the body of Christ, there’s unity in Praise.

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

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

    We are to imitate Christ and Jesus did not need for us to log-in, he kept track of us by knowing the very hair on our heads.

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

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

    Reflecting on the week that just ended, we covered the subject of Creation, the land of milk and honey, avoiding temptation, standing in the presence of the Lord, Love the Lord and seek Him. We hope that at least one person made that commitment and many sought renewals in the presence of Christ.

    Father we thank You in Jesus our Lord and savior, be with us today as we in faith look to You seeking Your guidance,  We give You our Praises, to You Lord be the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen

    Come to our Lord Jesus and be Victorious in Him… He said…. Ask, and it will be given to you, seek, and you will find, knock, and it will be opened to you (as told by Jesus) Matthew 7: 7 NKJV.

    Winston Churchill said…Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.... Winston Churchill

    We reflect on the topic that success is not final, and failure is not fatal. This profound statement applies to life’s challenges, but when we know the Lord and have accepted Him, in Him our Success is FINAL.

    Looking back at quotes from Churchill who was severely challenged during the German’s blitz over Britain… 

    Here we see a leader that looked at logics and applied knowledge; one would guess he also listened to God and not just men. 

    Quoting Churchill… Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen...Winston Churchill

    All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope... Winston Churchill

    Is our freedom challenged?  Yes, in many places, Christians are being persecuted and even killed, thank to our Lord that we have Freedom of Worship in many countries and many are still coming to Jesus.

    Action/Coming to our Lord: Ephesians 1:7 NKJV

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

    Ephesians 2:8 (NKJV)

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

    Prayer: Heavenly Father as we start the week, we thank You in Jesus for Your Grace and Your faithfulness. Lord be with us and let Your blessing be upon our Visitors and grant each us Your Favors as it is all to your Glory Lord. We Pray in Your Holy Name and to You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    Who won from the Pandemic? We believe no one. Not even the nation that launched it. This is a classic human mistake, weather it was intentional or accidental. Because… ‘No weapon formed against God’s people will prosper.

    The nation of the origin of the invisible enemy may have had intention of gaining from it. But conversely it inflicted self-injuries.

    Credibility, Trust, Integrity and Faith are the foundation of the free society. Brand Equity is built on trusting in the product. America has produced Iconic brands. Brands like…

    1. Jeep. 2018 Rank: 1st. 2017 Rank: 1st.
    2. Disney. 2018 Rank: 2nd. 2017 Rank: 3rd. ...
    3. Coca-Cola. 2018 Rank: 3rd. ...
    4. Ford. 2018 Rank: 4th. ...
    5. American Express. 2018 Rank: 5th. ...
    6. Hershey's. 2018 Rank: tied -- 6th. ...
    7. Twitter. 2018 Rank: tied -- 6th. ...

    But the best known is the Holy Bible, that outsells them all. The Bible is more than ‘Brand-Equity” it is as the little girl said in class…”Only God could have written such as book”  The Bible is all about Jesus, from day one at the Creation, He was there as God said ‘Let there be Light” and there was Light. Yet the Sun was not created until the 4th day. So, Jesus/Yeshua was with the Father on day-one, and remember, the Father said…”Let us” make man in ‘Our’ image…

    So, today rejoice that you were made in the Likeness of God. It is amazing that we can be compared to the Highest Sovereign Almighty, the King of kings and Lord of lords.  Therefore, knowing this…We can claim Victory, as the Word of God also said we are “More than Conquerors”…

    Romans 8:28-31

    New International Version

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

    More Than Conquerors

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

    Celebrate Victory in Christ Now and forevermore. Can you ever have believed… being ‘Glorified’  where on earth can you ever achieved this?

    So in conclusion, the originator of the Covid-19 Virus is the loser, as this killed their market of all Vitamins, Supplements and food products with the stamp…”Made -in-China’ this symbols became synonymous with the Coronavirus from a China Lab. This was a sure way for China to teardown the Brand losing all equity in

    Prayer: Lord, we thank You for Your Divine Armor of protection, Lord let our Visitors also be shielded as we go in Faith and we Praise You and in Awe…we are humbled to know of Your Divine Grace and Love. Thank You Lord Jesus, to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    Friday October 2nd, 2020

    Finding the Joy in today’s ‘New Normal’?… Is there Joy in travels, Joy in dining out, Joy shopping? Let us hope that your Joy has not been replaced by Fear, Jesus said…’Fear Not’ do this now.

    Let us adopt the affirmation of the Lord, knowing that…

    Our weakness is backed by the strength of the Lord… go boldly and be triumphant in victory…

    What is your weakness?  Finding the weakest link in the chain is the best thing to do before you start using the chain.

    The weakest link in the supply chain are the people? The human factor is impacted by AI (artificial intelligence) creating sort of the ‘weakest-link’.  In the case of deploying the ‘Predator-drones’ manned by humans, the long hours and the tactical stresses are sometimes more than what the programmer-operator-pilots can take, pointing to the weakest link.

    Maybe our weakest link will be ‘Sin’… but ‘Weakness’ is not a sin. As we wrote, Temptation is not a sin, it becomes a sin when we indulge…

    Commentary:

    Contemporary teaching has tempered the wages of Sin… guess what? The wages of sin are still death!

    In the realms of our Lord nothing has changed, He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow… So, when we are told our Lord is a God of Love and a Forgiving God, do not take this for granted.  This message applies to us all, no one is immune to temptation, and temptation is not a sin, but when we yield to the temptation, then we have committed a sin.

    Our Lord said we are to forgive not just seven time but seventy-times seven, this adds up to 490 times.  In our live time we will commit thousands of sins. Using an average of 80 Years we will account for 170,528,000 hours being awake, (16 Hours / day) when we look at the brevity of life the average lifetime using 80 Years will add up to 29,200 days. The reality of our journey through this world is not a lot of time. The beauty of mathematic it reveals many things that we can do.

    The exercise above is to demonstrate if we can afford to give a child a $1000 in a trust fund with a yield of 6% compounded, for 65 years, this will mature to $441,449 when retired.  But what will this buy? Maybe pay the utility bill for a month in the year 2077 or buy a shopping cart of groceries?

    The exercise also is showing that the future is not a too sure thing regardless of what we do or plan, but in Christ we have His Security… as all things work for Good to those that loves Him.

    The caption today is a very harsh reality, that to intentionally sin we have a major confrontation with our Lord, while He is a Loving God, the Bible also said that our Lord is a God of Consuming Fire… and the Scriptures said to continue sinning there will be no more Sacrifice for us. As we have continued to put our Lord Jesus back on the Cross…

    Text: Deuteronomy 4:24
    For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.

    Text: Hebrews 10:26
    If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left,

    His Promise / His Faithfulness:

    Romans 3:25
    God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—

    Conclusion:

    So taking into consideration that all of what we have accumulated as material things, will be of zero value in His Kingdom, therefore, using our 170,528,000 Hours (our awake time) to Praise our Lord, abide by His Precepts and to follow His command of spreading His Good News so that others will know our Lord too, then we are laying up treasures in Heaven, While doing these we know that it is only by His Grace that we are saved and not of what we do.

    The above is an example of the patience of our Lord, and because of His Majestic-Glory He did not need to expose His

    “Power” He expressed His ‘LOVE”.  But this same Christ who is God Incarnate will also be a God of a Consuming Fire on that day.  But in Christ we have His Covenant and in Him there is no condemnation of those He has made Joint-Heirs.

    Prayer: Lord we look up to You our Sovereign Eternal God, Your strength was covered by Your Humbleness and mankind has demonstrated our weakness by exalting ourselves while You the Most High allowed us to ultimately be realized that we can do nothing and in all things, we need You Lord. Lord we thank You for the many blessings and we come giving You our Praises. Lord bless our Visitors and grant each one Your Peace and for Your Coming Lord to redeem us. We give You the Glory and Pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You be the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

    Thursday October 1st, 2020

    When things get back to normal, we will appreciate the churches, the restaurants but not the traffic…

    The ‘New Normal’ is abnormal as the COVID-19 is a health hazard but also a political hazard.

    Christian arrested for Singing and Worshipping, is this ‘fake-news’ or is it real? Guess what?

    Yes, it’s true… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qvsns-WFBlk  

    There you have it, totally abnormal. The question is. Is it business as usual in Wuhan province, China? The news of Americans involvement in the development of the Virus, a well-known philanthropist has been linked to the lab in China.

    Here is a statement published by the Gates Foundation…

    Our Work in China - Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

    www.gatesfoundation.org › China-Office

    China has achieved remarkable success in addressing health inequity and poverty over the past decades. Its domestic reforms, increasing global engagement ...

    Factually the above statement is correct as it said… China’s increasing global engagement, which is so true as they launched the COVID-19 globally.

    So, in an upside-down economy, closed establishments and millions of lives affected by the lock-down, creating, other physical disorders, including suicides, drug abuse etc. Where is the silver lining? We cannot blame our President, and the political fallout taken by politicians is just an irrational reaction to a global pandemic.

    The Word of the Lord is still the Same… He came that we would have life and have it mor abundantly.

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

    Text: Revelation 3:20  

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

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

    Just think how Jesus would bring me great news of what he has prepared for me and to give me insight of what to come? I can imagine that the table setting would be with delicacies of fruits, nectars, fishes, meat, and bread.  I can imagine how He would pray over the setting and thank His Father and then feast with me as He prepared only the best.

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

    Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, Ephesians 3:19-21 (in Context) Ephesians 3 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations

    2 Peter 1:11 for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you.2 Peter 1:10-12 (in Context) 2 Peter 1 (Whole Chapter) 

    Prayer:
