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)

The Lord of Host is our Almighty God, is ‘Ghost’ derived from Host? So, in the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I am saying in ‘Father, Son and Holy Host’… He invited us to come and Reason with Him, and a Ghost is not at the table reasoning, 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.

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday October 25th, 2020

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

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

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

Luke 24 New King James Version

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

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

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

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

Commentary:

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

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

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

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

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

John 16:9-10

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

John 16:17

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

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

Prayer: 

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

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. 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 privilege to serve You for Your Glory.

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 to make you beat me these three times?”

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

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

“No,” he said.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 love them.

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.

Wednesday October 14,2020

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 the Tutankhamun 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.

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

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come and give you our Praises, for Great is Your Faithfulness… Lord Jesus today as we bring You the petition of releasing Your favors upon our Visitors. 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.

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 Ithe Vine—Followers Are Branches

I am the true vine, and My Father ithe 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.

Thursday October 8th, 2020

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 absolutionamnestyforgiveness, pardon, remittal, 

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.

Saturday October 3rd, 2020

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: 

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus today we acknowledge that 2,020 years ago when You came to earth, You came so that we will have life and have it more abundantly. Lord we thank You for Your Covenant of Grace, and it is by Your Grace that we are saved.  Lord thank You for bringing  Visitors to this site, as we are privileged to serve You and all for Your Glory Lord. Bless our Visitors and grant us all Your Peace as we thank you for Your Favors. Lord today be with us as we look to You knowing that all things work for Good to those that loves You Lord. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to you is the Power and the Glory, now and Forevermore. Amen.

Wednesday September 30th, 2020

Imagine a world without politics, without greed, without hatred, without tension? Keep hoping. Guess what? it is not here on earth, but it is to come, and the King of kings will be on the throne.…

: Nothing, no one, no obstacle can stop God’s plan for His people…

It is ironic that those crucifying Jesus thought they were stopping Him from spreading His teaching.  But they were in fact carrying out the will of God.

The event of Christ’s Crucifixion has never been repeated… in History we have never seen anyone rising from the dead, walking among men for 40 days, nor did it ever go totally dark for three hours on the entire earth.

The Ascension of Jesus is another event that has never been repeated. 

The Miracle of miracles can never be scientifically explained.  And all of man’s attempts to thwart God’s Plan for us failed.  Because God can never be manipulated or stopped by us, so let us just come to Him and say “Here I am Lord” I am ready to serve You.

Even Balaam who was hired by Balak to ‘curse’ Israel…  Balaam thought that he was smart, but he was as phony as a $3 dollar bill… He did follow the instructions from God and did not curse God’s people, but he did undo the good that God had him do in the end…a So we see that God cannot be fooled, and in the end Balaam got what God does to all who willfully transgress against The Lord. Our Spiritual blindness can only be enlightened when God intervenes.

 Read Numbers 23, 24 & 25

We cannot change the course of History, but we can certainly seek refuge in our Lord.

But God said to His people... Jeremiah 29:10-12 New King James Version (NKJV)

10 For thus says the Lord: After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My good word toward you and cause you to return to this place. 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.

Proverbs 3:11-12

New King James Version (NKJV)

11 My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord,
Nor detest His correction;
12 For whom the Lord loves He corrects,
Just as a father the son in whom he delights.

James 1:2-4

New King James Version (NKJV)

Profiting from Trials

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

VICTORY:

1 John 4:4 New King James Version (NKJV)

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

His Assurance:

Isaiah 54:17
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.  Isaiah 54:16-17 (in Context) Isaiah 54 (Whole Chapter)

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.

Tuesday September 29th, 2020

How many babies were aborted? The number is 1.5 Billion which is 19.2% of the world’s population.

On a greater scale of Birth-Prevention by Abortion, sterilization, and other means.  400 Million births were prevented in China under the one-child policy.  The aftermath of this failed policy resulted in 33 million males without a future of a wife and a family unit.

While the policy was developed for population control and to maintain the balance of food and nutrition, this may not seem to be a communist plan of having combat soldiers in high numbers. Or could this be intentional?

Thanks to the exposure of citizens of the world being able to see the other side of freedom, through the internet and medias that are waking many up to the evil aspects of their government.

Woes to those who have killed the innocent under sham of ‘Pro-Choice’ if one can make a choice, why not choose to know the precepts of God?  Pro-Choice is an adoption of a label that gives the abortionists and the victims (the mother and the unborn child) a self-righteous do as ‘I Please’ choice. The same labelling was applied to same sex by the adaptation of ‘Gay’.

Accountability of the above will be soon.  As we quoted this yesterday; it is worth being repeated…

Romans 12:19

Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.

The above text seems like it is a message from the ‘Silent-Majority’ of almost 2 Billion lost lives, but their Souls are in heaven as the Lord sees them from the inside out knowing… that these unborn beings never committed a sin. But the Word said that all have sinned, and we can only say this is true for those who have lived and never accepted the Lord.  These unborn never experienced the privilege of making a choice, they were preserved under God’s plan, as he said… even the very hair on our heads are numbered, and he loves each and everyone whom He created.

For those who may say… how about the bald person who has no hair, how can God’s statement be

 accurate? Yes, God is accurate as even the bald person has hair follicles. The Omniscience of God is

 pre-eminent and only He will restore. But God did empower us all, as He said…

Ephesians 3:16

that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through

His Spirit in the inner man,

2 Timothy 1:7

For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.

Going to the Lord… Prayer:

Father in heaven we thank You through Jesus our Redeemer and by His Power we come and Lord

thank You for granting to us Your Power as we claim it in Your through the Holy Spirit. Lord blesses

our Visitors and grant us all You Divine Grace. To You Lord Jesus is the power and the Glory

forevermore… Amen.

Is A Lie Just Free Speech, Or Is It A Crime? Accusing your opponent is so prevalent;  blatant Lies are intolerable especially when we know the liar is the real cheater.

The father of lies is the devil. Lies are not ‘Free-speech’ it is deception. No one likes to be deceived.

John 8:44

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

As we await the day of election, the day after will be a new day… No more political ads, what a relief it will be.  The Joy of the Lord is all we need.

John 15:10-12

New American Standard Bible

10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. 11 These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.

26. Romans 14:17

for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

27. Romans 15:13

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

So, while things are not acceptable as the ‘New-Normal’ to us… we shall rejoice in the Lord, as he said: 1 Thessalonians 5:18

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


Ephesians 5:20

always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father.

Colossians 1:12

giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light.

Colossians 3:17

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.

Romans 12:19

Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.

Coming to the Father…

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Redeemer, Lord Jesus in You we have righteousness because You are Righteous.  Lord we thank You  for this new week. Lord we know for many there’s hardship as the world undergo the manmade pandemic. Lord we pray that the needs of all will be met. We pray for our Visitors and give You our Praises thanking You for Your Divine providence on us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

If we could turn back time, what time in your life would you choose? I prefer to be here today, as it is God’s plan for my life, as I made Him the Author and Finisher of my faith, my life and mine all…

      Do not lose courage, wait upon the Lord, in the fulness of time it will be done…

jump the gun meaning: 1. to do something too soon, especially without thinking carefully about it: 2. to act too soon or before the right time.  

 The term “failure to launch,” is an increasingly popular way to describe the difficulties some young adults face when transitioning into the next phase of development—a stage which involves greater independence and responsibility. (17-28 years)

The above contrasting opposite actions;  ‘Jump the gun’ is to move too quickly, and ‘failure to launch’ can be defined as an inability to leave home and support oneself.

Conversely, none of the above action should be a ‘syndrome’ because nothing will occur until the ‘Fullness of Time’…

Psalm 16:11 [Full Chapter]

You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Galatians 4:4

But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, In Context 

Ephesians 1:10

that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. In Context 

Ecclesiastes 3:11

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. In Context | Full Chapter

The 400 years of the ‘Silent period’ between the end of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New Testament, broken by…  Galatians 4:4 ‘The Fullness of Time’

But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, In Context 

So, 2,018 years ago ‘The Fullness of Time’ came and this is what we have…

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. In Context | Full Chapter 

And Salvation is by His Grace, paid by His Blood…

Hebrews 2:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

Hebrews 9:28

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. 

Today we have been ‘Redeemed’ Galatians 3:14

He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.

All Gentiles (Non-Jews) are engrafted into the family of Abraham… Praise God!

Listen to Romans 11: https://www.biblegateway.com/audio/mclean/niv/Rom.11 

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come… Lord Jesus teach us to be patient as we wait on You and not on others.  Only You Lord knows the fullness of time and because You know our capabilities and nothing that we cannot handle will be given until the right time.

Just like the Israelites, they complained about the Manna and as we saw, they could not contain what they asked for. Lord Your mercies are overwhelming as we are no different. Lord we seek Your Divine guidance and seek fellowship in Your Holy Name as we ask Your blessings on our Visitors.  We thank You for Your graciousness, and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Saturday: September 26th, 2020

Wait on the latter rain, do this, and be prepared for a bumper crop. But we must plant it, remember James said faith without work is dead.

James 2:26

For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

Commentary:

A friend of mine was the head of a US company in Latin America back in the 80’s, coming from the corporate culture of a Fortune 500 company the change was a cultural shock.   For one Calendar integrity was not the norms. Being a day late could be considered a minor time change to a meeting date without notification.

Speaking of Calendar Integrity did our Lord forgot us? We read in Genesis… And the Lord remembered Noah, and we look at the 400 years of communication break between the end of the Old Testament and the beginning of the New Testament when the Angel announced the Birth of Jesus.  So, what is a few hundred years to our Lord?

For those of us on the lookout for His return, we must recognize that our Lord is the Creator of all things including TIME….To our Lord Time is a Dimension… just like when he saw Nathaniel coming to him and he said, I saw you while you were under the fig tree.

]John 1:48
Nathanael *said to Him, “How do You know me?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.”
John 1:47-49 (in Context) John 1 (Whole Chapter)

Today as we continue in our ‘Business as Usual’ daily routine, could this be the day? Yes and No… one thing for sure only our Lord knows for sure.   So, until that Trumpet sounds (Not everyone will hear it) we are to continue in His mission field by doing our part… These are the points discussed last Sunday by our Pastor

Generosity goes beyond. $
Alignment of ourselves with God’s mission for our lives…
Why does the church need money?

  1. Not just for the use of the elders
  2. But to overflow to others in thanksgiving to meet the need of people
  3. To. Praise our Lord and. Blessing others
  4. To lead others to our Lord
  5. To lead others to praise God
  6. To be stewards of what our LORD ENTRUSTED to us
  7. To plant more churches for His Glory and to build His Kingdom
  8. Generosity has a price and a reward
  9. Do not be like Cain bring to  God my first fruits
  10. God does not need my money it is all His
  11. Present yourself as a living temple to our Lord
  12. Give up our idols
  13. Live by Matthew 6:33 seek Him first
  14. Unless we give with our love for Christ, we are giving in Vain
  15. Without the Gospel as the seed we have Nothing to give
  16. We cannot out give our Lord
  17. For me He Jesus became. Poor so that. I may have His richness
  18. All of what our Lord asks He knows that we can in faith give on His behalf
  19. All checks written to our Lord's mission are always replenished to our bank
  20. Do not let your left hand know what your right hand did
  21. Sufficiency is the enrichment He gives us
  22. Multiplication of his gift of talents entrusted to us so we must be good stewards
  23. If you do not receive His favor you may not have good intentions
  24. It is a privilege to be a participant in His mission of Grace

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

Because our Lord is Omnipresence and all things are possible for those that loves Him, the Privilege that He has given us must be expounded to grow His Kingdom until He returns.

The 24 keynotes above are what we must strive to acknowledge and put them into practice.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus, thank You for coming and being the head of Your Church. Lord bless us today as we seek You and Praise You for Your Graciousness.  Lord be near us today as we go in Faith knowing that in Your time, we shall see You as You are, and knowing that our Faith in You shall be rewarded as You said, all in Christ shall be saved. Lord we thank You for Your Covenant of Life in You we have Victory.  Lord bless our mission for Your Glory and the many Visitors coming to this site. Lord we pray in Your Holy name Lord Jesus to You is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Friday September 25th, 2020

When asked, do you believe the Bible? The little girl said only God could have written it. Recently, eating, and enjoying a delicious fruit, I said, only God could have made this…

Have you ever while eating an Apple wondered how was it made? It is amazing. Eating an Ice cream cone and all things that make up great recipes, all the cherries etc., we take so much for granted.  Everything is a privilege: your driver’s license is a privilege, the air we breathe is a privilege and seeing the beautiful landscape is also a God given privilege,

So, what do you enjoy that you think it is not a privilege from the Lord? When you find out please let us know.

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

Commentary: Seek the Lord as He said “you are no longer servants, but friends” …

 John 15:15

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

We all have a few ‘fair weather’ friends… such a relationship with the Lord is no relationship as Jesus said…

Matthew 7:23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!

God desires goodness for us all, this is why He sent His Son Jesus…

John 3:16-17 (NKJV)

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

Note: The Text refers to ‘The World’ but in context… God was referring to the ‘people’ of the World, as He said, ‘Whosoever believes in Him shall not perish’.

Remember the most profound statement ever said on earth was said by Jesus when He said…” I am not of this world”

Good News…

A Patient & Merciful God… God through His Son Jesus came that we could be saved from the consequences of our sins

His Redemption: 1 Peter 1:18-19 NIV

For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.

His Eternal Faithfulness:

John 11:25-26 New King James Version (NKJV)

25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”

His Faithfulness-

And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one.” John 10:28-30 NKJV

It is already done by the Redeemer:

Mark 11:22-24 New International Version (NIV)

22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Action/Coming to our Lord: Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. 

Conclusion

Come to our Lord today as He said come unto Him and He will receive you and forgive you of your sin(s) and you will be a new creation in Christ.

Pray... Lord Jesus I come in Faith accepting Your gift of Salvation and chose to be alive in You by your Grace my Lord. Lord Jesus receive me as I repent of my sin and accept your great Salvation by your Blood of Atonement, and I seek Your divine guidance in my life, to you Lord be the Glory... Amen. 

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus we come, Lord we come to praise You and proclaim You as our Eternal-Sovereign God. Lord let us use this day to pray for our Visitors and those who are seeking You to be blessed with Your Peace. We give You preeminence in our lives knowing that we shall see You as You are Jesus Messiah… To You be the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Thursday September 24th, 2020

Happiness and contentment are easily achieved… really? Yes, Jesus said so. Believe him and live it.

The book of Ecclesiastes is a book of questions with answers that really is a form of preaching. Although the name of the writer of Ecclesiastes did not appear in the book, it is stated that he was a son of David and a king in Jerusalem that points to Solomon.

Text: The book of Ecclesiastes consists of 12 short chapters, read it carefully as it is deep with despair but full of Hope and the Theme is to “Trust & Obey”

Commentary:  We will breakdown the book into six distinctive segments as follows:

1] The writer made his statement that everything is futile, in Chapters 1 & 2, the writer said life is pointless, knowledge does not help, and pleasure leads to nowhere.  Then he further went on to say that everybody has to die, and achievement means nothing but only God gives contentment.

2] The writer tells us of his experience in Chapter 3 that everything leads to nowhere, including wealth, pleasure and all our successes come to nothing as man is finite and God makes the difference because He is infinite and eternally Sovereign.

3] Chapter 4 & 5: We are reading the writing of King Solomon who was the richest of all and here he stated that man’s lot is miserable, the perils of privilege, coping with possessions, but there is consolation in Fellowship when we keep God in view.

4-6] Chapters 6 & 7: we read his question of; what is the use? But there as some wise advice and how we should apply wisdom in dealing with human perversity, Chapter 6, 9, 10, 11 &12 reminds us that life is short, life seems unjust, the writer’s frequent use of “meaningless” and his comparison of Life, death and the future. He summed it all up by saying … that since old-age and death will soon come, people should enjoy life in their youth, but remember that God will judge.

After the discourse of despair in spite of being the richest person on earth (in worldly possessions) the book of Ecclesiastes must be read carefully; if misinterpreted one would conclude that it is saying live unto your own well-being to the fullest.  The depth of this book is saying ‘Stand in AWE of GOD, a Good name is better than fine perfumes, remember our Creator, Fear God and keep His Commandments… finally, the profound conclusion… Chapter 12 Verse 13 & 14... Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter, Fear God and keep His Commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed unto judgment, including everything whether it is good or evil.

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 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.

Wednesday September 23,2020

Solomon was the wealthiest , in his personal life;  he had 700 wives and 300 Concubines was this enough? Unlike his father David, whom the Lord said David was a man of His own heart… But in both King David and Solomon, both committed sins in the sight of the Lord.

David while he committed a great crime, he did repent. And God sees us from the inside out.

In the Bible there are multiple incidents where we see the compassion of Christ, His mercies, and His love. Above all we see His Divine Redemption as he paid it all.

       Unlimited Grace… not because you earned it, Grace cannot be purchased.

Romans 5:15

But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.

Believers Are Dead to Sin, Alive to God

What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death? Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become [a]united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be [b]in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old [c]self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be [d]done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is [e]freed from sin.

Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, [f]is never to die again; death no longer is master over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, 13 and do not go on presenting [g]the members of your body to sin as [h]instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as [I]instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? May it never be! 16 Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin [j]resulting in death, or of obedience [k]resulting in righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that [l]though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart to that form of teaching to which you were committed, 18 and having been freed from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, [m]resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, [n]resulting in sanctification.

20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 Therefore what [o]benefit were you then [p]deriving [q]from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death. 22 But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you [r]derive your [s]benefit, [t]resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

When we read about the evil spirit, and specifically when Saul was tormented by the Evil Spirt, it was not God that sent the evil spirit, it was when Saul was vulnerable as the anointing of God was removed.

Isaiah 59:17

For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing and was clad with zeal as a cloak. In Context |

The GOSPEL IS THE WHOLE THING, And the Goodness of HIS Resurrection.

Pay Careful attention to the Gospel, so we will be fully Anchored in Jesus Christ…as HE Never Lies, HE is Supreme, HE is Sovereign, and HE is our Eternal God…

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

Tuesday September 22nd, 2020

Can we ever have enough? Let us look at the world’s richest person, to him there is not enough?...

Who is the world’s richest? No, it is not the founder of Amazon®, Alibaba®, Microsoft® , Berkshire Hathaway®, or Oracle®. Why aren’t these captains of industry the world’s richest? If any do not know Christ, then he would be among the ‘Poor’

Can we ever have enough?  No, because when you have the Zeal to win souls for Christ, then there is never enough.

The economy of wealth is measured in what you could consume. To be exorbitant, with $10 Billion earning 2%, this is an income of Yearly: $200,000,000. Monthly: $16,666,667. Daily:  $45,662, Hourly: $1,903 with this income to any of the wealthy without health there is no joy.  Jesus compared the wealthy to the poor widow that gave her last coin, and Jesus said, of all the donors, the poor widow gave the most. It is not money; it is the intention of the heart. The fact is the Lord is not impressed by the wealth, He blesses those He chose, He is ready to empower you and let you be a good steward.

On the subject of stewardship and managing what we have.  Today we want to take a look at our possessions, our resources.  We look at the world’s economic conditions and wonder why the USA, France, The UK, Spain, Italy, and a few other developed nations and wonder why are these so-called world-class economies are awash in debt?  Is it because we spend more than what we take in? Yes, then why are we spending more than what we take in? is it because China has beaten us at our own game?

Continuing the discussion on Stewardship; the text from Matthew 25: 22-23 are direct statements made by Jesus himself. Oftentimes, our Lord spoke using graphic illustrations, and Jesus was laying out a metaphor that He used bags of gold, but in the real world today we could say that the bag of gold is in fact the talent that He entrusted us with.

He let the rain fall, on all... Love Your Enemies

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

Conclusion:

The Lord’s blessing to let it rain on the just and the unjust is because He is not partial, and He made no preference, but one preference to all in Unity, as we are all sinners, and by his Grace we are Redeemed. So even the un-redeemed are beneficiary of His showers of Blessings, because they too shall come to know him and be also Redeemed. But His great commission to us to bring the Gospels to all and spread the Good News to the ends of Earth is to be our mission for His Glory.

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

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

What impresses you most? A 5-Star hotel, the Grand Canyon, God’s Grace, God’s Providence or God’s redemption? 
God’s Redemption is more a ‘Shock & Awe”as the event of Christ’s  crucifixion and His Resurrection is Divinely from from the Father.

So much we do not know… the Expanse of the universe, the billions of galaxies, and the distant planets. To be impressed by the achievements of man, we must never forget the the Love of Christ as this is more important than any thing we can ever know.

As Job said… for I know my Redeemer lives… this is what is call true faith coming from a man who,lost it all, sitting with sores on his head, buy in his plight he said…
Job 19: 25-27…. I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see him with my own eyes —I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!
Here we see a man who was really impressed and in faith trusted God.
As we begin this new week, let us praise the Lord…

Father in Heaven in Jesus we come.  Lord take this week and let is be filled with Your Divine providence as we know all things work together for Good, Lord bless our Visitors, we love You Lord. Jesus Messiah, King of Kings to you be the Power and the Glory forever. Amen

          The Joy of leading in the Name of Jesus… What is more precious? Leading someone to Christ

or winning the Lotto?

Leading someone to Christ is gaining a Treasure in Heaven,  Winning the Lotto, you have just joined the ranks of people that are known to go bankrupt.

While we are…  Travelling the road of life, do you see the ‘Markers’ to His Kingdom?

Jesus revealed the key-markers for the journey.  He even ‘enhanced’ our abilities and gave us His Divine blessings.

These are what we received…

The Faithful promise of our Lord: Jesus said…

The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. In Context John 10:10

The ‘Secret’ to security in Him: Matthew 6:33

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

Let us analyze what Jesus said above… ‘and all these ‘Things’ shall be added to you ‘As-well’

Here is what we gained from Jesus’ statement.  When you seek Him because He is Righteous, you will get to His Kingdom.

You may say, it is so easy to say the above, how can I know that I have been ‘given’ the rights to His Kingdom?  And when do I receive it? Read on

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

We must have unwavering faith in Him… Hebrews 10:23

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. In Context 

This is Jesus’ enhancement made available to us… So, Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17:20 In Context

Do you believe the above? And especially Jesus’ statement of…  “and nothing will be impossible for you”.

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. In Context |

What is the greatest achievement you would like to achieve? Let us hope it is not to win the lotto, because a third of lottery winners declare bankruptcy—meaning they were worse off than before they became rich.

Let us hope it is to receive ever-lasting Joy in the Lord… because Joy is eternal, and temporary happiness (like winning the lotto) will not last.  Statistics have proven that many lotto winners are prone to depressions, drug addictions, etc.

So, today, follow the ‘Light’ and Jesus is the Light… His Light will reflect through you and we are all the shining-light on the hill.

Jesus is the Light of the World and His Kingdom is Forever…

His Creation is above man’s comprehension, as many are trying to bring the evolutionist theory into the school curriculum, our take on Evolution is; if evolution was a fact, then why is the ape that is in the Zoo for almost 35-40 years still sitting in his cage? If evolution were a fact, this old guy would be out driving around in his new Mercedes-Benz.

Are we to assume that evolution is like the ‘Singing’ Frog, the story of the man excavating the foundation for a news building, he came across a box, he opened it and there was a Frog that started to sing like Al Jolson… so he figured he could make a lot of money by putting this Frog on stage, but each time he had a sold out theater, the frog would not sing, but right after refunding the patrons’ money, the Frog started to sing, he repeated this until he was broke, the moral of the story here, never believe in a Frog doing more than just croaking….  The same for the storyline of the evolutionists.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Lord Jesus our Sovereign Eternal God in One of Your Holy Trinity we come thanking you and giving You our Praises for in You we have Victory. Lord we bring You our burdens which are many for our Brothers and Sisters, our Government leaders, our Pastors, and those in foreign land that are oppressed and persecuted Lord. You have promised Your Divine protection as their battle will be won because You will never leave us nor forsake us. Lord let Your servants be equipped as in faith as we proceed knowing that You are the Author and Finisher of their Faith. Lord bless our Visitors and grant them Your Favors. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus and to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

God gave us permission to ‘Boast’, but it was with conditions…

Jeremiah 9:24, we read: "'But let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,' declares the Lord."

       Get off the Treadmill today… the need for more and more driven by self or society?

If we are self-driven, then we can pace ourselves. If we are driven by the demand of society, the constant

Barrage of commercial, internet marketing, and the need for more and more will speed up the treadmill beyond sustainable limits.

Seize the day is a popular saying… Doing this can be a landmark in our lives.

I can still remember the day my dad took me and my sister to the department store and bought what we wanted for Christmas.

He seized the day by stop working to spend the time with us. For two kids being 5 & 7 years old, I was delighted with my new pedal car, and my sister with the tallest doll.

Our dad also seized the day every Sunday as we attended Sunday school and church services. So, when someone ask… how did you come to know the Lord? My answer is; I never had the ‘Damascus’ road experience, but, as Bill Graham said… being born in a garage doesn’t make you a car, nor being born into a Christian family make you a Christian.

Jesus said… ‘You must be born again’

We are all like Nicodemus, and the world is full of many that cannot comprehend the meaning of Jesus’ declaration.

John 3 In Context

Jesus Teaches Nicodemus

Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council. He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.” Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” ...

While we read this, some may say... ’I already know this’ and it is not News. Yes, it is, as this statement by our Lord Jesus is the benchmark of knowing Him and looking to that glorious day when it will be more than going to the department store for Christmas.

Carpe Diem – Seize the day, today is the best day, as yesterday is gone, and tomorrow is not yet here. Make the best of today…

Why is the above declaration the foremost statement?

Without Jesus saying “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God ‘Unless’ they are BORN AGAIN” Here is the Messiah, Son of God, One with the Father saying ‘Very’ truly, it like when someone speaks today by prefacing the statement, ‘To be honest’ I am telling you this.  Jesus, we know never lies, but in this case he was stressing ‘I am telling you ‘very truly’ .  This is meant as a statement of fact. No deviation, no compromise, and no one will get any preferential treatment and be allowed without being Born-Again.

Come to the Father by the Righteousness of Jesus our Redeemer.

Romans 10:9

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans 10:13

for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Prayer:  Lord Jesus we come and thank You for Your Grace, and as said, Your Grace is sufficient. Lord we thank You for making the pathway straight and the mountain level as we go in faith. Thank You Lord for our Visitors and let Your Divine blessing and abundant Providence flow to us all. We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus now and forevermore… Amen.

              Sleepwalking… worse yet, sleep driving – a true event

A few days ago, I received a call from an associate… I said, I wondered where you were? He replied he was in a major car wreck.  I said how did it happened? He said for three and a half years he has been taking sleep aid, and a well-known brand is known to cause sleepwalking.  Here is what happened… He said he got up got dressed, got into his SUV, and drove away and hit a concrete column and flipped the vehicle. He then crawled out and realized he was sleep-driving. He lost two hours of memory of what took place.

So, I said have you gotten down on your knees and thank the Lord for keeping you safe? He said he felt that somehow there were angels keeping him safe.

Here are a few alternatives to taking sleep aids…

Melatonin. 

Melatonin is a hormone that your body produces naturally, and it signals to your brain that it is time to sleep. A recent poll by the National Sleep Foundation found that 95% of people use some type of computer, video game, or cell phone at least a few nights a week within the hour before bed.

But scientists are now finding that light from electronics has the potential to disrupt sleep, because it sends alerting signals to the brain. The circadian rhythm seems to be especially sensitive to light with short wavelengths—in particular, blue light in the 460-nanometer range of the electromagnetic spectrum. This light, which is given off by electronics like computers and cell phones, and also by energy-efficient bulbs, has been shown to delay the release of melatonin. In other words, electronics could keep you feeling charged past bedtime.

If you have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, consider keeping electronics out of the bedroom and turning them off—especially those used at close range—for at least an hour before bed. It can take some time for the body to come down from technology’s alerting effects. Protect your evening wind-down time by reading a book, for example. Let your body chemistry settle for the night.

The best Sleep Aid is to go to the Lord in Prayer… In faith acknowledge that His Peace is paramount to all that we can ever gain.

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Your brain interacts with your heart, and these two represent our nervous system.  So, when Jesus said…”Do not let your heart be troubled”. We are given the best alternative to sleep-aids.

The Peace from the Lord, giving us His assurance that all things work together for the Good,

So, knowing this; we can zero out our mind, stop sending any anxiety to our brain that causes our heart rate to keep us awake.

Can we escape the ‘wave-length’ from the smart-TV, the cellphone, the computer modem powered by the Wireless signal that goes throughout the house? Maybe not, so the people living in the hut in the jungle with no Wi-Fi  may be better off than us.

Going to the Lord…

Prayer:  Heavenly Father in Jesus our Redeemer we come.  Lord Jesus today as we gather, we are in Awe that there is no need for a modem. Wi Fi or cable to connect with You. Lord because You are the Light of the World and You Lord Jesus keeps it all together.

Lord we thank our Visitors for their faithfulness of coming today. Lord we thank you for Your Grace and Your Blessing on us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forever.  Amen.

Peace & Tranquility… Find it today, not tomorrow. Today is what counts, get it now.

  PEACE; A state of tranquility that we all desire. 

 Only from our Lord can we have an Everlasting Peace.

Hebrews 11  (NIV)

Note: without Faith we cannot please God, nor can we find HIS Peace…

Faith in Action

11: 1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

This is what the ancients were commended for.

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.

By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.” For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.

 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.

By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.

 By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. 

10 For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God.

 11 And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age, was enabled to bear children because she considered him faithful who had made the promise.

 12 And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.

13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth.

 14 People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own.

 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 

16 Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

17 By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son,

 18 even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.” 

19 Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so in a manner of speaking he did receive Isaac back from death.

20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau in regard to their future.

21 By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of Joseph’s sons, and worshiped as he leaned on the top of his staff.

22 By faith Joseph, when his end was near, spoke about the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and gave instructions concerning the burial of his bones.

23 By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict.

24 By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter.

25 He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. 

26 He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.

 27 By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible. 

28 By faith he kept the Passover and the application of blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn would not touch the firstborn of Israel.

29 By faith the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land; but when the Egyptians tried to do so, they

were drowned.

30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell, after the army had marched around them for seven days.

31 By faith the prostitute Rahab, because she welcomed the spies, was not killed with those who were disobedient.

Reviewing the above, how many would you believe if you did not have the Faith in God and knowing Jesus?

Today as we gather, we can say…’all of the above’.

Remember faith in the wrong belief can be a disaster, regarding the Titanic… The phrase was originally "practically unsinkable" someone claims to have heard ship Capt. Edward John Smith say "Even God himself couldn't sink this ship," 

Remember Experts built the TITANIC, but God designed the ARK… and guess which one did not sink?

Trust in the Lord with all your heart… Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Go to the Lord…/ Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus we give You our Praise and our adoration as You Lord is Holy and by Your Righteousness we are privileged to be in the presence of the Father. Lord we ask Your Divine blessing on our Visitors and us all. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forever… Amen.

Covid-19 was created to: (check the box) [] World dominance [] Business Interruption [] Other

Before checking the box, maybe we should look at the source of Covid-19. Coming from a country of totalitarian rule, the creation of the Virus most certainly had the criterion of all three categories outlined above. The ‘Other’ category, is to impose the virus on any opposition to their cause.

The Word of God… No weapon formed against His people will prosper…

Isaiah 54:17
no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue
 that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord.

Good News Translation

But no weapon will be able to hurt you; you wil have an answer for all who accuse you. I will defend my servants and give them victory." The LORD has spoken.

God will judge each by their work… but the Word of God said…

Romans 11:6
And if by grace, then it cannot be based on works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace

Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the ...

It is in Him, and through the shedding of His blood, that we have our deliverance--
the forgiveness of our offences--so abundant was God's grace, ...

We do not believe in conspiracy theory, but as said, history has a way of repeating itself.

As we reflect on the wonderful Grace of God, He sent His Son Jesus.

When we look as the top richest individuals, is God using them? Yet, God used Shepherds to bring His Good News, and many ‘unknown’ as angels.

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

The global state of commerce being partially shut is intended to hurt the population causing them to be stressed and the ones that invented this Virus will enter the scene with a vaccine that is also the method of imprinting the mark of the beast???

Is the Prophecy being fulfilled? 

Revelation 13:17, NIV: "so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark of the beast”, ...  Revelation makes it clear that true believers will reject this mark (Revelation ... on the forehead, everyone will be required to display it in order to purchase ... The first beast dominates the final form of the Roman Empire and sets himself up ...

We do not believe in conspiracy theory, but as said, history has a way of repeating itself.

The intent of mankind to wield their ‘Power’ this is what they need to know… The ultimate power is from God, and no weapon formed against His people will prosper.  

The easiest way for those attempting to dominate is for them to lose their monetary wealth and when their resources are drained then become like a wilted plant, that is only good to be thrown into the trash heap.

The Divine Super-Natural powers of our God far exceeds our thinking abilities… so today we stand in awe of the great things our Lord has done for us, His Divine Redemption through his Crucifixion and His Triumphant Resurrection.  Knowing this we are more awe-struck that Jesus who is God Incarnate would do this for us, yes, he did!  Because we are His greatest treasures, when He created us in His Likeness, He said it was Good… so why did He had to die? Because mankind fell from His Grace, He came to redeem us we are descendant of Adam whom He created, and by the sin of Adam we are all sinners.

EVENING:

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

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

              America is too big to fall… let those creating chaos be aware. This is the land God endowed…

When “peaceful” protests become violent, what is accomplished? Nothing more than destruction of properties and lost of lives. What do they gain? Recognition? Respect or making a cause known? Certainly from the destruction and looting there is no gain, and the mission of making a cause is marred by the violence. Therefore, to represent a cause one must first be respected as a spokesperson for the cause.

When Jesus said…  turn the other cheek, what did he mean?

The example of our Lord Jesus as He faced the trial before He

was crucified, He has the power to call legions of angels to fight. His angels will not be fighting with sticks and stone. As seen when Elisha was defended against the 8,000 soldiers, there were chariots of Fire. What an awesome show of force.

The event below also showed that when Elisha led the now blinded soldiers back to the  king, he asked that the king not destroy them, he restored their sight.

2 Kings 6:11-23 -

The pursuit of Elisha…

This enraged the king of Aram. He summoned his officers and demanded of them, “Tell me! Which of us is on the side of the king of Israel?” “None of us, my lord the king,” said one of his officers, “but Elisha, the prophet who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the very words you speak in your bedroom.” “Go, find out where he is,” the king ordered, “so I can send men and capture him.” The report came back: “He is in Dothan.” Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city. When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked. “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike this army with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked. Elisha told them, “This is not the road and this is not the city. Follow me, and I will lead you to the man you are looking for.” And he led them to Samaria. After they entered the city, Elisha said, “ Lord, open the eyes of these men so they can see.” Then the Lord opened their eyes and they looked, and there they were, inside Samaria. When the king of Israel saw them, he asked Elisha, “Shall I kill them, my father? Shall I kill them?” “Do not kill them,” he answered. “Would you kill those you have captured with your own sword or bow? Set food and water before them so that they may eat and drink and then go back to their master.” So he prepared a great feast for them, and after they had finished eating and drinking, he sent them away, and they returned to their master. So the bands from Aram stopped raiding Israel’s territory. 2 Kings 6:11-23 - https://www.biblegateway.com/passage?search=2%20Kings%206:11-23&version=NIV

We see that the raiding of Israel stopped. Just as how God sent His army (and Airforce) and empowered Elisha, God can do this for America, Hong Kong, and He can and will remove the Covid-19.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come. Thank You Lord for Your Covenant of Grace as we go in faith knowing that all things work together for good to those who love You. Lord as we delight ourselves with our Visitors You have said that You will grant us the desires of our heart. Lord we thank You and give You pre-eminence above all. To You Lord Jesus is the power and the Glory forevermore… Amen.

Is there a change in the Air? Yes, the political scene is changing…

The street violence seen in cities across some states of the USA are actions of intimidation that the protestors and their sponsors plan to carry on through to Election day.

However, in 2017 the government addressed this and provided methods of removing those who would be intimidating voters.

Both Paul and Silas experienced the civil upheaval against them…

Acts 16

Paul and Silas in Prison

16 Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. 17 She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” 18 She kept this up for many days. Finally, Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment, the spirit left her.

19 When her owners realized that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to face the authorities. 20 They brought them before the magistrates and said, “These men are Jews, and are throwing our city into an uproar 21 by advocating customs unlawful for us Romans to accept or practice.”

22 The crowd joined in the attack against Paul and Silas, and the magistrates ordered them to be stripped and beaten with rods. 23 After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison, and the jailer was commanded to guard them carefully. 24 When he received these orders, he put them in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks.

25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. 27 The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!”

29 The jailer called for lights, rushed in, and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. 30 He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” 32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. 33 At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his household were baptized. 34 The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God—he and his whole household.

Just as how the Lord protected Paul and Silas, we too will be protected  as the Word of God said……

Psalm 34:7

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

God loves you and we are to fear His wrath and accept His mercies and be in Awe of His Majesty.

Remember, we are to delight ourselves in the Lord

Psalm 37:4

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Praise the Lord for His enduring mercies, thank Him for His Divine Providence, His Redemption and His Restoration.

Prayer

Heavenly Father we thank You for Your Divine Grace and through Jesus our Redeemer, Lord Jesus we give you first place in our lives. Lord bless our Visitors and Lord we thank You for the resources to keep this ministry for Your Glory. In Your Holy Name Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Did our Intelligence know about the Covid-19 before it invaded? Is this pandemic a form of warfare? Or was it an accident? Either way this is an evil action launched against humanity…

Is ‘Global-Warming’ a curse? Maybe we should look at it this way… The world’s population is expected to be   8.5 billion by 2030, 9.7 billion by 2050 and exceed 11 billion in 2100, Is the Food supply sustainable? The longer growing cycle and the opening up of more land for agriculture, is unfolding as the world population grows by quantum leap. So, here we see the silver-lining of once barren land becoming food production regions.

Sunday September 13th, 2020

The week here was spent in discussing world issues, let us take time to give thanks for the goodness of Christ Jesus.  We will focus of the Gifts the Lord has provided.  He made us all more than conquerors, He gave us a sound mind, with ‘Power’ and He overlooked our faults and is ready to receive each of us and grant His Peace. Do it today…

Sometimes when we experience a disappointment we may wonder why? We also may feel that the providence of the Lord is passing us by. But we must never declare this to be so, because doing this we show lack of faith.  Remember… God’s time is the right time.

Genesis 17:17

Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, “Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?”

Genesis 18:12-14

New International Version

12 So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, “After I am worn out and my lord is old, will I now have this pleasure?”

13 Then the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Will I really have a child, now that I am old?’ 14 Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”

Even after Abraham had Isaac, God did this…

Abraham Tested

22 Sometime later God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!”

“Here I am,” he replied.

Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”

Early the next morning Abraham got up and loaded his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about. On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance. He said to his servants, “Stay here with the donkey while I and the boy go over there. We will worship and then we will come back to you.”

Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and placed it on his son Isaac, and he himself carried the fire and the knife. As the two of them went on together, Isaac spoke up and said to his father Abraham, “Father?”

“Yes, my son?” Abraham replied.

“The fire and wood are here,” Isaac said, “but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?”

Abraham answered, “God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” And the two of them went on together.

When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. 10 Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. 11 But the angel of the Lord called out to him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!”

“Here I am,” he replied.

12 “Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said. “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.”

13 Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram[a] caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. 14 So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.”

15 The angel of the Lord called to Abraham from heaven a second time 16 and said, “I swear by myself, declares the Lord, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, 18 and through your offspring[b] all nations on earth will be blessed,[c] because you have obeyed me.”

Abraham and Sarah’s experience and what the Lord did is the exclamation point of FAITH…

So, In the realms of God’s timing, with Faith the ‘Best is always the end result’.

Prayer:

Today as we gather to give You Praises, Lord let Your Holy Spirit be indwelling in us. Lord we thank You and give You Preeminence in our lives. Lord bless our Visitors and let Your Divine Providence flow to us all... Lord bless this week as we go in Faith. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forever… Amen.

Billions are spent exploring Mars, why not explore our inner cities, find people that are in need, bring them help. So, trying to build habitat on Mars, which is futile, as you cannot live in the Mar’s atmosphere. Let us make our neighborhood a better place.

So, Mars is inhabitable unless you wear a spacesuit and be equipped with an oxygen generator unit.

So, why spend billions going? It is like spending billions fighting a war without victory as the goal.

Jesus came with one mission… He came and He accomplished His mission. His death at Calvary was a sacrifice. In Faith we acknowledge that He died in our place, He paid the Penalty for our sins.

This is still incomprehensible to the unenlightened. If any feels that he or she is without sin, then they make a Jesus a liar. If anyone feels that they can be good enough to enter God’s Kingdom, then this is also saying that Christ did not have to die.  But the first. How do we know that God has prepared a place called Heaven?  Have you ever had the experience that because of the mercy of God you were spared from death? If so, count your blessing. On the other hand, if you escaped a tragedy, then was it because of your own wishful action that the ‘Near-Miss’ occurred because you wished it in an instant?  So, you are here because of your own doing?

When you stop and look back and count the times you averted a disaster, was it  a miracle or some fate of ‘good luck’, then go and try taking a leap and let’s see if you can with ‘good-luck’ that you will not hit the ground falling. Now, some may say that ‘Positive-thinking’ can be useful. It is like the neighborhood fortune teller that may charge you a few dollars to tell you the future. I have often times said, if they can tell the future, why do not they just get the winning lotto numbers and hit the jackpot; and not take the few dollars from innocent victims. Only Jesus knows the future, and as Nathanial asked Jesus, how did you see me before I came?

  1. John 1:48

“How do you know me?” Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, “I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.”

  1. John 1:50

Jesus said, “You believe because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You will see greater things than that.”

His Saving Grace: 

2 Timothy 1:9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,

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

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

Is ‘Global-Warming’ a curse? Maybe we should look at it this way… The world’s population is expected to be   8.5 billion by 2030, 9.7 billion by 2050 and exceed 11 billion in 2100, Is the Food supply sustainable? The longer growing cycle and the opening up of more land for agriculture, is unfolding as the world population grows by quantum leap. So, here we see the silver-lining of once barren land becoming food production regions.

Here is a report… Climate change could expand the agricultural feasibility of the global boreal region by 44 per cent by the end of the century, according to new research. ... The study, published in Scientific Reports, estimates that by 2099 roughly 76 per cent of the boreal region could reach the right conditions for agriculture. May 24, 2018

While some skeptics may dispute this by claiming the increase land area will create more demand for water. The question is? We will have more land because of melting snow, where will the water from the melted snow go? Obviously, God provided more land and enough water to sustain it. All it will take is good stewardship to maintain the equilibrium.

Scientist must bring the ‘God’ factor into their thinking. The concept that God doesn’t care or He is trying to punish us, this should be replaced by knowing that God loves us and somehow they fail to know the Power of the Almighty and there is nothing that they can do. The Global warming caused by the Cars and transportation = 28+% and from Agriculture 9.9%  the absurdity of some politicians’ desire to get rid of cows is just plain crazy, while the “Green’ movement is saying use more solar panels, more electric vehicles, more wind turbines, have they figured how much carbon emission these will produce  in making them? While the environment is a political football, very little is done about planting more trees. They need to be reminded that the Cattle on a thousand hills are the Lord’s…

Thankfully in God’s Kingdom, there will be no need for fossil fuel and best yet no politicians.

So, today’s blog is to show that factually… God is in charge.

What good will it be to conquer Mars? This is like running away with the accounts ‘Payable” and not the receivable… Let us abide by what Jesus said…

Matthew 6:32-34

New International Version

32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

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

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

Nearby is a relative term in astronomy. The earth-like planets are 12.5 Light Years away. So, here we see

Revelation 5:11 In Context 

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

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

Praise our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus…

Father in Heaven through the righteousness of Jesus our Redeemer, we thank You for the Grace and forbearance given to each of us. Lord as we Acknowledge You and thank you for our Visitors we go in faith as You are the Author and Finisher of our Faith. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory forever. Amen.

Thursday Sepember 10, 2020

The Lord has blessed the USA, it is the Cornucopia, Food Basket to the world. Is china the Rare-Earth king? They are using it as a bargaining chip, let us see how good it tastes… Yet we have not weaponize our food supply it is freely sold.


The U.S. has long been a superpower in food markets, and it is still one of the world's largest food exporters.

His Faithfulness:

Romans 5:10
For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!
Romans 5:9-11 (in Context) Romans 5 (Whole Chapter)

Action/Coming to our Lord:

We are to come like a child, not clueless but be aware that we cannot hold back anything as he knows our very thoughts…. We are to come to our Lord with no pre-supposition, no reservation of what our Lord can do in our lives… we are to be in Faith… going forward in what we refer to as ‘Blind-Faith’ knowing that He is the only One that we can exercise total Faith with no reservation of coming clean… as He knows all of  our thoughts and every intent of any action that we will take.  So, let us come to our Lord asking for His Divine Blessing and that His Holy Spirit will be upon us to guide us and lead us.

Matthew 19:14
But 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 (in Context) Matthew 19

Conclusion:

When all is said and done, we can only stand in ‘Awe’ knowing that all discovery, innovations, and achievements man has made are miniscule and are just little steps. We spend billions to put a robot the size of a large vacuum cleaner on Mars that can only send us data and pictures that we have to use our imagination and a lot of assumptions; it is like looking at the universe with a $39.99 Kmart Telescope. Our Lord spoke the World into existence, He created us and made us His own. He loved us so much that He made a way for us to be brought into His Kingdom by His Holy Sacrifice, another Super-Natural step that only our Lord can do.

We can only use what He provided and cook up a pot of stew, enjoy His abundance that he gave us dominion over. So, we give thanks to our Creator our Father and Jesus our Redeemer who is God in One of His Holy Trinity. Lord Jesus our Triune God we thank You for being our Redeemer and being our Intercessor to the Father, Lord knowing that we are privileged to be counted among Your Heirs through Christ our Messiah. We Praise you Lord.

His Promise:

1 John 1:9

New International Version (NIV)

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness

Conclusion:

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

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

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

Can the airlines survive during the pandemic? Yes, if they know that they are in the transportation business and not just flying airplanes. If not…they could go the way of Penn-Central railroad. Why are we talking about Airlines and Penn-Central? Yes, we are still a Good News site spreading the Gospel, to see why,  read more…

Penn-Central went out of business as they continued to be railroad operators and not a transportation provider. Meaning they failed to look outside the box, ignoring the multi-modal transportation of Rail-Sea-Air and Land. The Airlines need to be outside the box looking at Air Cargo as a higher ratio of their business because Goods and merchandise are moving around the world in spite of the lockdown.   Church leaders needs to look ‘outside the box’ too, as the lockdown continues, the sanctuaries are closed, and worship services are banned. So, they need to be outside the box, by turning the parking lots into ‘Drive-In’ churches. Being in your cars will follow the social distance requirement.

To accomplish the Drive-in Church format, all it will take is to purchase a Low-Power FM Broadcast station and each car as they drive into the Parking Lot they will tune into the frequency and hear the service.  So, you may say…  isn’t is just as good if they stay home and tune into Zoom and visit the Service? No. Being in the Car at the church it will unite the family and be in corporate worship in the Body of Christ.  Some churches are opening up, but the wearing of a mask is not for everyone for an hour plus. Praise the Lord that we can come to Him just where we are…

Know this… Standing in the presence of the Lord? Yes, we are always visible to Him, He sees all out actions.

As we stand or kneeling or even lying in a hospital bed, we are always visible to the Lord. He also hears us.


So today as we travel, work, or resting and especially when we meditate, we must be aware that…

Hebrews 12:1

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

Each of us are in the presence of the Lord, just like when Jesus told Nathanael...

“How do you know me?” Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, “I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.” Then Nathanael declared, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the king of Israel.” Jesus said, “You believe because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You will see greater things than that.” He then added, “Very truly I tell you, you will see ‘heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on’ the Son of Man.” John 1:48-51 - https://www.biblegateway.com/passage?search=John%201:48-51&version=NIV

Are you ready to see the heaven opened? Ready to see the Son of Man descending? With world events in a state of disarray, most are not ready or ever given a though of this.

For eons people have waited on the return of the Lord, and the wait may have made many complacent. Will Tomorrow be another day, or could it be the big-Day? Sometimes in Florida the usual answer is… just another day in paradise. Really, the day could be real paradise, as the Lord said…

in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

1 Corinthians 15:52 –

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

 2 Timothy 1:7  (NIV)

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

Let us use today to be renewed as we stand in the presence of the Lord. You do not have to bring anything other than yourself. And while we are waiting tell others about Jesus and His saving grace.

Heavenly Father we come, Lord Jesus thank You for Your saving grace, and as we seek You and by Your righteousness we are made whole to be in the presence of the Father, we thank You Lord for Your graciousness. Thank You Lord for our Visitors as we ask Your Divine blessings on us all. To You be the power and the glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Tuesday Sepe†mber 8th, 2020

Where is the silver-lining of the Pandemic? Churches are closed, but the liquor stores are open, is evil triumphing over good? Are we using the ‘lock-down’ to spend quality time and having the Peace of the Lord? Do this today…

The most important day of your Christian Life is TODAY!

Text: 1 Timothy 2:5-6

New Living Translation (NLT)

5 For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. 6 He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.

Commentary:

Yesterday is Gone… Tomorrow when it comes it will be ‘Today’ but the moment in time is Now! What are you doing about your Christian life?  Stop and first know that He is God,  Each day when we meet a friend or even a stranger we would say, How are You? Have you said Good Morning Lord? What are we thinking? We are thinking about Him because He is REAL.

The events of the Bible chronologically recorded the Greatness of God. When we read the Bible which is still the best seller of all times, one would gather the highlights of the events, and now focus on the most important contents of this book.  What is the most important content?  The Bible is all about Jesus, From the Creation in Genesis to the book of Revelation, Jesus is fully immersed in all of the events.

The Ten Commandments given to man is like the little book handed out when you buy a car, or is best like the safety suggestions on the card in the back of each Airplane seats.  This card will tell you not to smoke, not to try and open the escape hatch, not to block the isles etc. The Ten Commandments also provide our Conscience of what we did wrong. But conscience cannot save us, it only tells us when we did something wrong.   Just like Temptation cannot kill you nor is it a Sin, but the moment we indulge then we have sinned, and Conscience is step one of committing a sin.  

Victory is an event to be enjoyed, unless we succeed we do not have Victory to be savored, therefore let us declare that Victory is better than remorse, and the wages of sin is death. (No we did not make this up) God said…

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 6:22-23 

What a disappointing outcome? To be paid by death…how could one choose to work and be paid by being killed? Would you take this job? Certainly not.  But we enroll for this job everyday.  So let’s stop and step out of this line and join the line that offers the Free Gift of Eternal Life offered by Christ Jesus. 

Jesus Christ our Redeemer ascended to the Throne of Righteousness and He is our Mediator. Jesus also said “No one come to the Father except through Him”

John 14:6 NKJV

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

Principle: 2 Timothy 1:7

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

7 For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.

Action/Coming to our Lord:

We can come to our Lord Jesus Boldly , as He give us Victory in Him:

1 John 5:3-4 (NASB)

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

1 John 4:4   (NASB)

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

Conclusion:

Today is the most important day in your life, because? Today you can make Reconciliation with the most important person ever.  Look at what He is saying…

 1 John 5:14-15 NASB)

14 This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.

Things to consider…

1 Timothy 4:1-5

New Living Translation (NLT)

Warnings against False Teachers

4 Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons. 2 These people are hypocrites and liars, and their consciences are dead.

3 They will say it is wrong to be married and wrong to eat certain foods. But God created those foods to be eaten with thanks by faithful people who know the truth. 4 Since everything God created is good, we should not reject any of it but receive it with thanks.5 For we know it is made acceptable by the word of God and prayer.

Prayer: Heavenly Father in Jesus our Lord and Savior we come.  Lord Jesus Eternal Sovereign God in One of Your Holy Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Sprit, today we Praise You knowing that You our Redeemer Lives... Lord bless our Visitors as it is by Your Divine Grace that we are saved. To You is the Power and the Glory forever... Amen

Did our Intelligence know about the Covid-19 before it invaded? Is this pandemic a form of warfare? Or was it an accident? Either way this is an evil action launched against humanity…

Plague was used in convincing Pharaoh to release the Israelites from bondage.

Is the Covid-19 a plague? Not really, but it is a Pandemic that penetrated globally. What was the intent of launching Covid-19? When you have many oppositions, it becomes necessary to develop a deterrent to thwart protest and stem the tide of free thinkers that may cause a dictatorship to ultimately lose power. Did you know… COVID-19 is caused by a virus—essentially a tiny bit of nucleic acid and protein that needs a living host—whereas the plague is caused by bacteria, which are single-celled organisms. Further, while antibiotics work on bacteria, they do not work on viruses.

In Christ we have Victory… Evil will never triumph over us, because; Greater is he in us than in them. 2nd Kings 6: 16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”

Greater is He in us than in them. He surrounds us with His angels in the presence of our enemy.

Psalm 34:7

The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him And delivers them.

In Context |

Proverbs 9:10 [Full Chapter]

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

 Let us analyze the following:

Those that fear Him

Wisdom and knowledge + Understanding

Fear is replaced by having our Adoration of the Lord. So, Love the Lord and fear His Wrath.

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

DAILY DEVOTIONALS

Sunday: September 6,2020

There is no one that can ever be called… Elohim, Messiah, the Great I AM, Jehovah JIREH, God. No one wants to be named Judah’s, but there are many Jesus. But there is only one Yeshua.

Remember… Give Thanks always… Even when in difficulties, because His Gifts are ‘Un-Seen’ given by Grace.

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

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Defining what Paul said above…

1st Always Rejoice in the Lord

2nd Pray and make your request known to God

3rd God’s peace will be upon you, transcending all understanding,

4th God will guard your heart and mind when you look to Jesus

5th Think only of things that is right, true, noble, and whatever is lovely, and His teaching look to Jesus and follow Him and the Peace of God will be yours.

2 Corinthians 4:18

So, we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

The Lord said…

Hebrews 13:5

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

Stand firm knowing that you have Victory in Christ…

1 Peter 3:14 But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.”

The faithfulness of the Lord…

Hebrews 13:6

So, we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”

Mark 11:23-25 New International Version (NIV)

23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

Come to the Lord with your burdens, trade them for permanent Joy…

So, let us Rejoice in the Lord for He is Faithful and He is mighty to save, and He conquered this world and has prepared a place that is a place of splendor…

I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Revelation 21: 2-4 NIV

God’s Assurance…

1 Thessalonians 4: 13 Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. 14 For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15 According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so, we will be with the Lord forever. 

Who could have written the above with such authority?  Paul, because Christ chose Paul, and…

2 Corinthians 12:2

I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows.

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come…. Lord Jesus as You are at the Right-hand of the Father we come knowing that Your Assurances abound forever and we can look to that day when we shall be caught up together with those who went ahead we shall join in the clouds to meet You Lord in the air. And so, we will all be with You our Lord forever. Lord bless our Visitors and let this mission prevail for Your Glory.  We pray in Your Holy Name Lord Jesus to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Saturday: September 5,2020

Home alone a popular move depicting a boy left behind, are you a home alone person? Not for us believers, we have the presence of the Holy Spirit endowed by the Lord, as Jesus said so.

Do this… Spending quality time… Use the weekend to be renewed, gain fresh insight, explore the Word.

The text today is from Peter an Apostle who was a Disciple with our Lord Jesus. Peter experienced the association with Jesus during our Lord’s earthly ministry. Peter was a witness of the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus. Peter wrote 1st Peter giving instructions on Holy living to those suffering persecutions and how to deal with false teaching and evil doers in the church

1 Peter 1:8-9 (NIV)

Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

1 Peter 2

Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

FAITH:

Lord Jesus we pray for restoration by Your Renewal of our Faith…

Psalm 51:12

New International Version (NIV)

12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation 
    and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

In Life there’s a lot of uncertainties, but one thing we can be sure of, we can accept our Lord Jesus as our Savior in the arms of faith, and say, "I know whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him." Do not let the thing of this world distract you, regardless of whatever it is…. We can be assured that we have a full assurance of our Lord Jesus’ interest in us. Nothing can substitute what our Lord has in store for us now in this life and at the end of our earthly lives, as in Him we have Life-Everlasting.

Let nothing satisfy us knowing that only what comes from our Eternal God will be permanent, because in Christ Jesus we are made perfect by His Atoning Blood. Let us be witnesses of the Holy Spirit bearing witness with His spirit, and we are certified that we are indeed a child of God.

Philippians 4

New International Version (NIV)

Closing Appeal for Steadfastness and Unity

Therefore, my brothers and sisters, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm in the Lord in this way, dear friends!

I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to be of the same mind in the Lord. Yes, and I ask you, my true companion, help these women since they have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my co-workers, whose names are in the book of life.

Final Exhortations

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

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

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

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

what is the meaning of “graven-images”?

A ‘Graven’ image is a carved wood or stone that is worshipped.  One could say that an engraved Gold or Silver coins that are usually owned and protected in a safe place can also be called a graven image.

During the time of Jacob, Laban his father in law had a few idols, as we read about how these were stolen by Laban’s daughter Rebecca.

So, today as we look around the house do you see any graven images or idols? It could be just a tea set with image of Dragons, what does the Bible say about dragons?

Isaiah 27:1 ESV

In that day, the Lord with his hard and great and strong sword will punish Leviathan the fleeing serpent, Leviathan the twisting serpent, and he will slay the dragon that is in the sea.

Revelation 12:9 ESV

And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

Know this…. Walking on water… Only Jesus can…There is the basilisk lizard, known as the Jesus Christ lizard, can.  But He Jesus is the only one ever walked on Water.

Good News: “PAID-In-FULL” You are Debt Free, and you may not know it… Start living a Life of Victory

Jesus came for everyone, not just the Jews but the Gentiles… The above of Christ telling the woman that He was not sent except for the lost sheep of the house of Israel, He was getting her to express her faith and she did so. 

Jesus not only came and Died to save us, He said I come that you will have life and have it abundantly…

John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:9-11 

Jesus Himself told us His ‘Secret’ Matthew 6: 33-34 tells us what to do, and this is not a ritualistic set of rules, it is to know Him and to love Him and abiding by his precepts…

Matthew 6:33-34 (NKJV)

33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

EVENING:

We are so blessed to have His Holy Spirit that He sent and to have the Gospel in its complete form, during the time of the Disciples walking with Jesus the Gospel was still unpublished as they were part of this Divine History being made with Jesus in their midst.  But even today we have Jesus in our Midst.

  1. Ephesians 3:20

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

  1. Titus 3:6

Whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,

  1. Hebrews 6:17

Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath,

  1. 2 Peter 1:11

For so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Good News: Walking on Water is impossible for us unless we have some super-natural power that man does not possess.  But when Jesus says… “Come unto me” you can always go to him.

Matthew 14:29

So, He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.

The Faith that He endowed to us, but we hope that all who are coming to Christ knows that Faith cannot save you, it is His ‘Grace’ that saves you when you have ‘Faith’ in Him.

Thousands are able to use their Faith to go to Him daily… Not just our daily walk, but their final’ walk, because our Lord said with Faith, we can say to the mulberry tree be uprooted and be transplanted yonder.  This was Jesus’ metaphor of telling us that on that final seconds of life to transition to Him. This is real ‘Faith’ in Action, just like when Stephen was being killed, he was looking up and he saw the Lord welcoming him home.

Let us come to Christ today, Pray this PrayerDear Lord, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Your Holy Name Lord Jesus, I pray… Amen.

Prayer: Father in Heaven in Jesus we come, Lord we thank You for this privilege of serving You and to bring Your Good News of Your Salvation to the world for Your Glory.  Lord thank You for our Visitors and Lord bless each and every one and let Your Favors flow to all as we pray in your Holy Name Lord Jesus, to You is the power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Deuteronomy 28:15-29

Curses for Disobedience

However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you: You will be cursed in the city and cursed in the country. Your basket and your kneading trough will be cursed. ...

12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

And we will forever be in a Sanctified Place

Revelation 22:3

No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him.

Conclusion:

Key note:  We are to add nothing to the Gospel, (No Pre-condition)

  • The Gospel defined in:
  • 2 Corinthians 1: 66
  • Romans 10

Faith & the Holy Spirit are the Keys and our anchor; see Romans 12

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

Hebrews 11:6
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who cometo him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Prayer:

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

What God did for Elisha by defeating his enemy, He will also do this for us too. We will overcome the Covid-19 virus. And the evil intent behind this pandemic.

  1. 2 Kings 6:17

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

  1. Isaiah 66:15

See, the Lord is coming with fire, and his chariots are like a whirlwind; he will bring down his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.

2 Kings 2:1

Elijah Taken Up to Heaven

When the Lord was about to take Elijah up to heaven in a whirlwind, Elijah and Elisha were on their way from Gilgal.

God can empower anyone to do as He did by allowing Elisha to wave his hand and 8,000 Syrian soldiers went blind.  He can command this to happen and let the Pandemic evaporate on demand.

The amazing Grace of God abounded upon Elisha, and even today this is possible as God never changes.

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

 Is the pandemic a global issue, is Jesus aware of your personal needs?
Yes, Jesus is aware of the needs of His people...

Who is waiting for whom? Are you waiting on God, or is God waiting on you?

Many of us may be waiting on God, and for some God is waiting on them.

Two things to be guarded against…

Do not get the Pharaoh’s syndrome (Ignoring the True God)

Never put God to the Test.

While Moses was telling Pharaoh to let his people go, Pharaoh was ignoring the God of Israel, and he did put God to the test. We all know how this ended.

Today, there is a storm brewing and we do not know of it yet. Just like the Covid-19 Pandemic. 

Whoever created this Virus, will learn a lesson by the manifestation of…

 Isaiah 54:17

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

Where is the Good News today? Here’ some Good News… God has placed our nation in a pivotal position led by men of faith.

And we can trust our Lord as He said…

Romans 8:31-39 [Full Chapter]

God’s Everlasting Love] What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.

Who are you waiting on? Know this… God is waiting on you. So, stop waiting on God and come to Him and know that He is ready to do the best for you. Imagine, God said to Samuel?

1 Samuel 3:10

Now the Lord came and stood and called as at other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel answered, “Speak, for Your servant hears.”

Here we see, God called, and Samuel responded.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus... just as You spoke, and Samuel said; ‘Your servant hears’ Lord we are listening. Lord we thank You for Your covenant of ‘No weapon formed against Your people will prosper’. Lord we are comforted knowing; ‘Greater is You in us than those in this world’.

Lord thank You for our Visitors and bless us all in Your Holy Name we pray. To You Lord Jesus is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

Tuesday: September 1,2020

The book ‘winning by intimidation’ was a best seller, did it convey the right message? Yes and no. The best seller of all times, the Bible said… God did say He would set a table for us before the enemy. God does not intimidate, He empowers.

Be a… A Conqueror… One who conquers; one who gains a victory; Victory in Christ…

Many ‘Conquerors’ were part of world’s history.

To name a few, they were:

  • Genghis Khan
  • Alexander the Great
  • Cyrus the Great (Cyrus rescued the Jews from Babylon)

But all of the above were just mere men, their greatness was just for a time, and their time expired…

Jesus never professed to be ‘Jesus-The Great’, Yet Jesus did declare that He was there at the beginning of creation with the Father.

John 8:58

“Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”

Amazing that we are declared ‘More than Conquerors’

Romans 8:31

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

Victory is not just in sight; it is already accomplished.  Because the Word of God said…

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future.

John 1: Jesus is God Incarnate….

New International Version (NIV)

The Word Became Flesh

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Principle: Yes, we can trust Him to deliver what He said, and in all instances, He said, be faithful, be a loving being, be forgiving, be humble and be His ambassador.

His Promise / His Faithfulness:

John 15:14

New International Version (NIV)

14 You are my friends if you do what I command.

Conclusion:

Boldness with Humbleness, these are the characteristics of being His Ambassador.  We can Boldly come to our Lord, and we can Boldly claim Victory in Him.

 

Action/Coming to our Lord:

Invite Jesus to be with you today, walk with Him and His Holy Spirit will be with You.

Many prayers end with an abrupt ending… ‘In Jesus name we pray’; this is mention as if Jesus was not in the midst of the prayer to the Father.

Coming into the presence of the Father without Jesus is like breaking protocol… why? Jesus said no one come to the Father unless through Him.

  • There are no One on One Prayers to the Father… why? Because Jesus said, “No one comes to the Father unless through me”
  • Just like when Stephen was being stoned by the crowd, he looked up and prayed… Jesus receive my Spirit, then he saw Jesus standing at the right-hand of the Father.
  • In a meeting with your best friend Bob or Jane and John who arranged the meeting do you end the meeting by saying goodbye Bob or Jane and in John name I thank him, wouldn’t you be saying goodbye Bob or Jane and to you John I thank you for arranging the meeting. Instead of Bye Bob and in John name I thank him?

So, when we end our prayers to the Father and abruptly say…” In Jesus name we pray” are we making an inference to Jesus beings absent? This is out of protocol as Jesus was present and you had to be speaking to Him as well as the Father, therefore we must say… “To” You Lord Jesus we pray in Your Holy Name. not the sudden abrupt ending…’In Jesus Name we pray’

2 Corinthians 3:17

New King James Version (NKJV)

17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father in Jesus we come. Lord Jesus we thank You for calling us and remembering us as we are wayward and need Your Divine guidance. Lord only You are Holy, and we are still in the wilderness and Your daily provision we have taken for granted Lord. We come today, and we seek to be in truth and not be superficial without Your Holy Spirit in our lives. Lord bless us and let us stand up and claim Victory in You Lord, as only in You Lord we can say Glory-Hallelujah and in our Prayer of Thanksgiving to You is the Power and the Glory now and forevermore… Amen.

 

We ask Your divine blessing on our Visitors and say in Your Name: May our God of Grace who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus bless and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you, and give you peace now and forever, in Jesus Name…. Amen.

To remember:  Give Jesus our First Fruit, not the left over….
