Everyone should be able and be ready to give an account of why we believe in the way we do. For an involuntary belief is the same as believing or not believing that faith without works is dead. At the end of time everything besides a personal answer is the second hand information of someone’s personal faith to believe.
Jesus said what He heard of His Father God. Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God. Propagated we are saved by the word of our own testimony and by the shed blood of Jesus. No one is personally responsible without a personal experience with the source of their belief. That is a personal revelation of God bonding us to the works of Christ. Everyone who hears and believes will have had an experience with the Spirit of God personally. Saved and baptized in the the Holy Spirit. Traditions of men nullifies a relationship with God the Father Son and Holy Spirit as intended the Genesis. The tree of Life awaits our redemption as Hell enlarged itself from the beginning.
You’ve got to be in it to win it at better odds than winning the lottery. Played by millions for a winning ticket. Faith in God is a life long warrantee of a prepare place so that where I am you may be also.
As sentimental as we are about the love of our own lives, God so love the world according to John 3:16. and gave His own to protect the family of God. Longing for His own as we long for ours. Being mindful of us as we are Him. Would go without food and water to resist temptations to surrender whosoever believes in Him. Suffering the realities of death to build His House.
I could go forever and never exhaust the endless love God has for own and why not. He made the world and everything made was made by Him. Thus our salvation is His responsibility to redeem that which was lost to Him.
The atrocities of this life is as an enemy caught in a snare struggling to be free and from the hand of God….. wars and rumors of war cascading human conflict stirred by the gates of Hell. Earth trembles with expectation of a coming kingdom.
The foundation of God is established among us. The house of God is built to the specification of a single saved soul. You’ve got to be in it to win it and the odds are one hundred percent better than to win the lottery. Jesus said, I go to prepare a place for you so that where I am you may be also.
The universe awaits our redemption even as Hell enlarged itself. The end and the beginning is one of the same according to the sentiments of God, saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Hello, …The believing spouse sanctifies the unbelieving and so the children are clean. The stronger helps the weaker loving as Christ loved us. The One who lived and died to be at one with God. Neither eyes or ears knows what God really means or can imagine what is His plan for us or the privilege of finding out.
The Word came to sanctioned our souls. Then the Spirit came confirming hard things spoken in knowledge of God. Cause to be in God is to be born again. Not of women but of spirit. Stripping away the cold hard facts of a lost souls. Is it surprising the lost is found in agony of the spirit? The mother of Jesus said, as God said, I am with child.
We are with child of the same Spirit. To nurture and to care for the freedom to be true to God and ourselves. It is a lost to be anything other than that what God created in us. First the man and of him the woman. Saved sanctified and at one through Christ. The Father Son and Holy Spirit. The knowledge to be righteous and at one with God.
The sky is there everywhere I see the moon same as you. Sometimes you sleep while I’m awake. Other times I sleep while you are awake. Today I won’t eat I entreat.
Together we stand commanding the heavens to obey I pray Earth display. Guarding hearts in issues of life. Lord you know our reasoning strife. There is a time that is empty. Seasons change the harvest is plenty. The workers are few here too. I pray your strength at length, that God above will not forget our labor of love.
‘know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God.
Life is a front row seat of a future time. It doesn’t matter where it began, just get there if you can. The Life of two is one of the same difference.
Then two shall be in the fields, the one shall be received, and the other shall be refused.
The second journey is a leap of faith. The first by inheritance. Faith increased the journey progressed, like barrels of fine wine that gets better in time. Inheritance carried faith for future reference.
For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.
The cost of having peace with God is worth more than houses and land. Money can’t buy joy of heart and the rich will pay double to access the joy of a happy camper.
7The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
The unlearn according to this world hears the voice of God’s Word and will apply it with wisdoms and understanding to our individual circumstance.
The knowledge of this world is generally confused by the Word of God. Having no respect of understanding by wisdom in their tiresome expressions of God, they exhaust themselves in the delicacy of this life. Wise men of understanding lives a holy and acceptable life before God and man without reproach. Living a life that speaks understanding of the Word and not by knowledge alone.
10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. 11 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased. 12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.
The names of God legitimately describes His many attributes where as the name of Jesus embodies the the knowledge wisdom and understanding of God. So it is that the fear of the Lord is the beginnings of wisdom. To which understanding benefits our own individual life circumstances.
This could never never have happen until it did. A global prayer on this rocking Earth. Jonah’s stormy seas the sailors did agree. Prayed there own god. Except for Jonah who would rather die than to preach salvation by repentance. Thrown over board at his command the storm subside. A sign of the times entertained by miraculous shouts was the voice of thunder.
An evil and [morally] unfaithful generation craves a [miraculous] sign; but no sign will be given to it, except the sign of [the prophet] Jonah.” Then He(Jesus) left them and went away.
Exerts of fools at the drop of a hat pray’s, OMG climate change is real. Well yea, replied the universe and the desert sands was once a green meadow. It’s agreed the Jonah’s of our time is afoot to run three days in one. The heroic sign of Usain Lightning Bolt gone in a flash overrides the silence of prayer.
The sleeper is on deck as the world prays to the universe. The half has never been told, the rapture’s foretold. The church is gone in a measure of calm the witnesses perform their miracles as a sign of the time. Three days in Hell was a three days journey. This generation seek for a sigh but none given except for Jonah in the belly of the whale three days. The word of the Lord came to Jonah, warning to Nineveh .
Had it been the voice of thundering Jonah might have avoided the belly of hell. But no, it was the word of God that came to him with the option to obey. Protesting the word of God for personal, political or religious reasons will always translate to acts of disobedience in any religion.
Three days in hell for Jonah and for Jesus was a sign of repentance. Jonah’s run is a depressive state with the word of God in hot pursuit.
As I draft this post I pray for habitual Christian sinners with the tendency to be the self righteous Christian. Believing in a God but not a Christian in many ways. Thinking that the righteousness us of Christ justifies us even in the unrighteous deeds of sinful behaviors. There are more of them than we care to acknowledge.
Blinded by the calamities of a sinful habits I pray. Because I remember well I was once that sinner and still is in calamities I endure.
….And we pull down reasonings and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and we take all minds prisoner to the obedience of The Messiah….Knowing that a righteous man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked are overthrown by calamity.’
Sins are not generally excused because we engage a world of sinners. Not a habitual sinner bound up in the calamity of a sinful life style. Tempted each day by the weakness of our flesh, we are engaged in the war of sin and death. Convinced to speak against others and not of our own triggers.
…’now it is not I who am committing this, but sin that dwells within me. …. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer.’
The truth of the gospel is independent of anyone’s personal calamity. God favors whom He will having mercy because He knows our hearts intent. Knowing more of Him requires more discipline to avoid the judgements of the simplest of sin. …But if we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and he will purge us from all our evil.
Jesus Himself was tempted as we are yet without sin. …For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.
… ‘For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.’
Sometimes we have to be encouraged. Remembering that the Son of the living God lived as we are in the world. Lived for thirty-three years in subjection to the laws of sin and death. Died and rose again and now is in heaven preparing a place for us. So that where He is we might be there too. There is a place in heaven with our names on it.
By the word of the Lord, we declare to you that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who have fallen asleep.
There is no consciousness of time when we sleep. One night or thousands of years is obviously unknown to us. With a stretch of the imagination it’s already a done deal going through the motions of human life. When Jesus reappears in the air the living and the dead in Christ will be as though this present Earth and every thing in it never existed. So hold in faith trusting in Jesus who is able to save to the outmost. Always making intercession to God for us who are justified by faith in the works of Christ.
Have a good night sleep tight and don’t let the bed Bugs bite. Tomorrow is another day.
Abram began his journey of Faith long before he was known as Abraham the father of Faith.
Without faith it is impossible to please God. He didn’t know that prior to his journey, how could he? He had not a man to teach him. Don’t expect a man to do what only the Holy Spirit can do. Sooner or later we will be entertained into idolatry.
The customs of Abram’s homeland challenged his mind. Typical of children withstanding the rhetorics of their paeanistic household. God called him to be the father of a new mode of worship. To exercise the confidence of having faith in God. Wherein the sacrifice of obedience is proven better than that of a rebellious disobedient life. A life that blasphemy the work of the Holy Spirit. Mending the worship of Cain and Able to that of prehistoric Adam before Eve was. How can we know that without the teaching of Jesus the Christ.
Suffering the equivalent of Alzheimer’s the world fell into decay. Rust and moss became the benefactors to the treasure of Earth the day we died from the inside out. Sin like cancer riddled the human race.
Cain argued my punishment is too great I will be killed by everyone I meets. Was it a second death or is it the slander prevalent alongside the sufficiency of faith that quells the evil of our day? The last enemy to be destroyed will be the second death at the Hands Christ. The enmity between life and death swallowed up in the grave. From dust we are and to dust we shall return. The only source of hope is to believe in the Lord Jesus and we shall be saved.
The hammering of nails piercing the hands of Jesus Christ echos the sentiments of a generation of vipers. Disobedient rebellious children whereas to be obedient is a worthy sacrifice in the power of the cross. Jesus the second Adam is the sustainable force behind the entire universe. Distributed faster than the speed of light to them who believes that God is a spirit and the reward for diligently seeking Him. Yesterday’s faith was for yesterday’s journey. Every day becomes a journey in the Word of God who is believed to be Jesus Christ Himself.
We are all sinners here with hearts masoned in a falling race. A constant provocation in the presence of God. Jesus is also provocative to us as the power of God into salvation.
Summarizing the accent of Bethel Jacob’s built an alter of stone to commemorate the house of God. So quiet we can hear a pin drop in the Journey of Abraham Faith. Somebody please make some noise up in here.
God heard the the Hebrew slaves, worshipping in idolatry as it was in the whole world. No! Not again paraphrased. God quickly concluded the tables of stone saying to Moses messiah of his time. Go down quickly, the people persist in idol worship. Moses hurried down from the presence of God on Mt. Zion. Smashed the tablets of stone in disgust of Israel’s impatience, although he had to again chisel a copy with his own hand.
This same Lord who embodied Jesus will return smashing the tablets our stony hearts to repentance. Believe that.
Wolves we are in sheep clothing in comparison to the righteousness of Christ. Reprobates seeking to disallow the works of God. In so doing confirms the works of God. As He said, Father forgive them they don’t know what they do. Clueless to the Faithfulness of Abraham.
A community statue commemorating the Christian beliefs of a people liberal and conservative became an offense. The liberals wants it taken down and the conservatives says no it’s important to our religious history.
The liberal minded says according to our religious history no graven images is advisable under penalty of law.. The conservative slapped the liberal saying, you are so liberal then let it stay.
We could debate between Esau and Jacob as to the agenda of their parents and learn a lot in the process. Still the question remains, is God being liberal, conservative or both toward us.
What if Esau had maintained the right to the linage of God. Would it be heaven on earth or hell on earth. That’s like asking would it be beneficial to us if the Antichrist never showed up just to prove the Bible wrong.
Why do men have nipples on their chest? Did Adam have big boobs? Google can’t answer that. It can only speculate after the fact. My wife laughed at me for asking? Haven’t you ever wandered? No she replied laughing, why do you? Well I went jogging and my whole upper body felt like jello. She laughed even more, welcome to my world.
Large nipples can be a problem for some teenage boys. We could bench press an Elephant and not gain an inch of muscle. Curling ten pounds across from the Hulk curling a hundred. Anyway, so much for that. The concept of a human being is so much more.
So great a error to believe that heaven is populated according to the marriages of Adam & Eve. The angels defile themselves in pride and with the daughters of men, the Earth is defiled in crimes against humanity.
God did not defile Adam by Eve they are one flesh as God is of One Spirit and those who worship must worship in spirit and in truth. To worship as a man or as a woman is a limited mode for carnal minded people. Thus the necessity to sanctify ourselves with the clenching of the Word. There it’s no longer I but Christ that lives in me reproducing after Himself in likeness of God. As it was said, let us make man after our likeness. Male and female created He them. Then Adam said bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh, yes!! There is so much more to a marriage.
The definitive power of the masculine gender illustrates the power of God in all creation for her love, the grace and the mercy is as of a godly wife tending her children as a godly husband tends for his wife. Husband love your wife is a feminine characteristic not intended for war but a peace not know in this world.
When a mother says to her child, go ask your father. The Father should never respond, go ask your mother. That child will gather their own conclusions on who and what life is, God included.
God the Father Son and Holy Spirit is complete as One. One Lord and Emanuel. Who became personal to every individual man, boy, woman and girl. First in ministry to the house of Israel and then to the furthest regions of the Earth. Behold the Lord our God is one God producing after His own kind and likeness is the marriage of One complete in the foreknowledge of God.
Somethings are better left unsaid. Especially when we labor to prove the ignorance of others to hide our own. To prove ourselves so much better than others. The content of which is eventually deleted or amended. To draft an original copy is never the same left to our own idiosyncrasies. Let’s always be ready to repent and to love that much.
The reverence, the quiet emptiness disturbed only by the ringing in my ear. Sounds like a million trumpet of distant galaxies playing my soul. The steady rhythm of my heart beats to the pulsing of my lungs as the blood passes through my vanes . I closed my eyes from thinking to harness the feeding of my thought. Fishing quietly in the shade of a new day.
What is said precedes the memory of my consciousness. Many voices confronting for dominance in my life. So many possibilities not expedient so here I fish waiting for the tug on my line. The sign on the marquee reads gone fishing, below the schedule of services.
YouTube is a game changer in isolation. I heard within the word of God saying, ‘all things works together for the good of them who love God and are the called according to His purpose’. Unless the Lord builds the house they labor in vain who build it, tugs my line. Oh yes got a hook, the house will eat good today.
So often we exasperate to build bigger houses that feeds the same fish. Drinking milk like a new born infatuated by love at first sight. Regurgitating the gospel truth according to grandma’s advice in a world she couldn’t recognize. The grand babies are weak and malnourished by grandpa’s own experiences in the grace or God. Jesus taught and said, I have meat to eat you know not of.
The house of God is a replacement to the Tower of Babel abandoned in confusion. Going from faith to faith and glory to glory the Lord God is raised a high tower. A refuge in time of need. We are in need. Not to change but to build on the foundation of the Word of God. On this Rock the church is built. Each member recognizing for themselves Christ the Son Of God as did Peter. With the excitement of a happy child Jesus said with a thrill in His voice. Flesh and blood have not revealed it to you but My Father in heaven. Up on this Rock I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.
We don’t want to hear the adulterated word according to popular customs and traditions of great men and women in their time. We want to be and do greater in the righteousness of our time. To build and to grow in stature with God and man. Not to tear down and replace but to erect milestones to the glory of God along the way. Using the same Word with a better understanding of who Jesus was and is today. Not as a humble Galilean preferred among His fellows, but Him who now sits in Glory. Causing us to do greater in righteousness calls us higher. Nothing less won’t do in the ever increasing and powerful house of God.
That’s a good title for a movie as we go streaming through the channels of this life. If you have never seen the trailer, here is one.
We know the story of Adam and Eve quite well. That Adam was lonely but not alone. God knew something wasn’t good. His son had no one of his own. A good father knows best the needs of a good son. Therefore shall a man leave his mother and his father and cling his own flesh. Not quite so but yea so as Adam slept we too sleep. Heaven and Earth awaits the bride and bridegroom.
The linage of of God is familiar to the agony of sin and death. The sweat of the brow became as the blood in our veins. Father! He cried if there be any other way let this cup pass from me. Glorify Me again with the glory I had with you before the world was. I know that you here me. There was deathly quite like a deep sleep in the eye of a storm. Could you not tarry one hour with me in this transformation. Jesus concluded His own reply, the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak in a deep sleep.
Like the blasting of a trumpet the angels sound. Wake up! get up, light your lamps. The bridegroom comes in the glory of the Son to claim His own. He is yours and they are His at the marriage supper of the lamb.
There was a tussle among the saint in light of God. Give me of your spirit We have none to see the way, the truth and the life. No! no! no! replied to the half of them. Go to the money changes and buy for yourself. But while they were gone the bridegroom came and the transfiguration was completed.
A match made in heaven for the wise and tribulations in the earth for the foolish. As it was declared that the best was saved for last because it tasted better. So as the first Adam slept and the second is awaken to the bride of Christ.
In a crises everyone prays their own way no questions asked. Should I remove my hat, close my eyes, kneel to speak in a foreign language. Should I go on a pilgrimage to be heard in the land of the gods. Or can I come boldly to the throne of grace in the agreement of two or three, asking whatsoever we will.
Men of authority are men under authority with a commanding voice. They say jump and we ask, how high? So too is praying in the authority of the Son of God. His name is above all names. The authority to change an outcome is a prayer spoken in good faith.
Clasping hands the righteous prays against all odds. ‘Oh Lord my God forgive and deliver my soul from the consequences of sin. Your grace is stronger than the consequence of all that is not of you. Where there’s a predictable end let your grace abound in mercy.’ Amen
The science of a prayer is the result of words spoken in the name that is above ever name. Prayer changes the things when the sacrifice of praise becomes a battle cry to worship and the voice of a nations is heard in heaven.
God’s grace is perfect in weakness that amplifies the power of Christ. In insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties grace is our personal testimony. By the touch of a hand demons are displaced where I once was lost I now know amazing grace.
Just about everybody, Christian and non Christians knows that song. Such a perfect melody.
There were ten yet only one returned to say, thanks. To be thankful is easier said than done. The unthankful is not listed in paradise.
Do diligence is well appreciated on both side of the fence. To go in and out and find pasture. For it is God who works in us on behalf of His good purpose without complaint. As He increases in us we decrease in Him.
So cautioned the saints in worship, we are men as you are. It is marvelous being capable of instructing the very angels of Heaven. Wondrous in the presence of God and acceptable in His sight is the cool of the day, cool.
Were they known as we are today there would be no necessity of law. The responsibility to be kings and priests unto our God is to a servant’s call.
You know that we will rule angels, not to mention things in this life, don’t you?
The knowledge of God is a bedrock to the churches. To be vulnerable and not ashamed in the presence of God as He will be with with us in His kingdom. The angels doesn’t know the mercies of God as we do. As we benefit their presence here they will benefit from ours there. Don’t you love it when a plan comes together?
In the Garden we were dressed like animals to be clothed in righteousness. Adam said, “I heard your voice in Paradise, and I saw that I was naked, and I hid myself.” So, God instituted Himself in the presence of a man. His presence is our journey to a safe place. When God finds usery in who we are and in what we do. To reap where He have not sown is the ambition of God.
The highest regard is to be recognized of the spirit for being charitable. Men rise and fall as great many have. It is God who who rules in the affairs of men.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you;
Recalling the story from Cornelius dream to Peter’s vision. To which Is coined the phrase ‘Rise kill and eat.’ That’s like German for ‘you are what you eat according to Feuerbach.
When speaking by the conviction of the Holy Spirit it is by conviction of spirit others will hear. I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned;
Slander by ignorance or intent results the same charge in this life and the next. So don’t tickle the fancy between God and Man. God rescues His own, “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.
So it goes, so it is as it has always been. We are confident in all things.
