Your Source for Change

August 22, 2020

Postive change yields positve effect.

Negatie change yields negative effect.

The Word of God is your source for change.  The Word of God is tried and purified – tested and proven to be accurate truth; absolute truth; without error.  Therefore, whatever the Word of God says it is without error and can be believed without a doubt.

“Every scripture is God breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, and for training in rigteousness (in holy living in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action).  So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.”  (II Timothy 3:16)

Many times people begin to doubt when they don’t see results or results according to their timeframe.  However, FAITH is the key. Faith is believing, trusting, and depending on God –  The Word.

“In the beginning (before all time) ws the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.  He was present originally with God.  All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.” (John 1:1-3)

Faith comes by hearing the Word of God.  Therefore, you must open the Bible, read, study and meditate on it so you can apply it in your life.  When you apply the Word of God, your life will undoubtedly change for the best.  This does not mean that you will not encounter trials an tribulations in your lfie. You will encounter trials and tribulations.

“Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, wherever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations.  Be assured and understand that the trial and provnig of your faith brings out endurance and steadfastness and patience. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work, so that  you may be perfectly and fully developed (with no defects), lacking in nothing.  If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the the giving God Who gives to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.  Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind.  For truly, let not such a person imagine that he will receive anything (he asks for) from the Lord.  For being as he is a man of two minds (hesitaitng dubious, irresolute), he is unstable and unreliable and undertain about everythign he thinks, feels, decides.  (James 1:2-8)

 

Count it all joy when you fall into trials and tribulations because it produces endurance and patience.

The Word of God shapes and molds you into the character of Christ – love, joy, peace, goodness, meekness, self-control, gentleness, and faith.

“But the fruit of the Holy Spirit is love, joy, (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper forberance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraining, continence).  Against such things there is no law (that can bring a charge).”  (Galatians 5:22-23)

 

TRUSTING IN THE LORD

 

But trust in and lean on the Lord without wavering and you won’t slide.

Trusting in self and relying on your own physical strength is an expression of pride.

 

Acknowledge God in all your ways, and from his thoughts and ways you will never part.

But if you decide to go your own way from your God-given purposes you will never start.

 

Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

And you will experience love, joy, and peace during the day and at night.

 

Honor and respect God in thought, word, and deed through love,

And you will ascend to higher spiritual heights like a dove.

 

Remember to put God first and not last,

Then you will experience joy unspeakable joy,

And a peace that surpasses understanding,

and a love for others that cannot be outcast.

 

Proverbs 3:5-7

Psalm 91:13-14

Silent Screams

August 19, 2020

SILENT SCREAMS

PAIN, PAIN, PAIN . . .
Screams of pain that are unbearable but yet go undisclosed.

Undisclosed because of fear and doubt.
Fear that causes mental and emotional torment.

Doubt that causes hope to diminish and turn to despair.

But perfect love casteth out fear,
God is love; so God casteth out fear.

Pain is eradicated (erased) through God, the Healer, and the agony associated with the pain is removed.

But one must choose to allow God to heal them by pouring out. (talking to God) about what is hurting and troubling you.

Pour out your heart to God because God is a refuge for you. He is a very present help in the time of trouble. (Selah)

“Trust [confidently] in Him at all times, O people;
Pour out your heart before Him. God is a refuge for us.” (Psalm 62:8)

“Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.” (Psalm 55:17-18)

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.” (Psalm 46:1-5)

Royal Priesthood – Kingship / Queenship

August 15, 2020

Greek word for royal is “basileus” which means kingly; rules; foundation of power

When you become a child of God by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you become a royal (ruler that has a foundation of power  through the Trinity (Father God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit).  This “Foundation of Power” gives you the power to keep God’s Word even when your thoughts and feeling say No!

Because you submit to the will of God (the Word of God) rather than your thoughts and feelings.  That is, you allow God to take control of your life rather than you.

Foundation of power gives you the power to defeat the enemy (satan) by using the Word of God and the blood of Jesus.

“And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].” (Revelation 12:11)

Dominion comes with rulership.  Therefore, you have authority through the foundation of power to not only defeat but to take control over.  For example, suppose you are traveling in a car and a stranger ask you for a ride.  Well, you don’t know if the person has a weapon or the motive of the person, so you decide not to give the stranger a ride in your car.  Well, you may start thinking well I’m suppose to help those in need, and your conscious begins to bother you.  But, the wisdom of God kicks in and says no, I should not have given the stranger a ride because of potential danger.

You have done two things:  (1) taken control over a potentially dangerous situation – getting hurt by the stranger; (2) defeated thoughts of guilt that satan has put in your mind because you chose wisdom over foolishness in not picking up the stranger.

The Greek word for piresthood is “hierateuma” which means to perform the functions of  a priest.

Priestly duties are:  to offer a sin offering unto God for an atonement of sin for themselves and the people.

The high priest was the chief administrative officer of all priests. He was in charge of the Tabernacle and later of the Temple of Jerusalem while it stood. He alone was allowed to offer sacrifices for the sins of himself, the priests, or the people. Likewise, only he was allowed to enter the Holy of Holies on the Day of Atonement. Occasionally he would assist the incumbent Judge or king with “inquiring of God” concerning an appropriate course of civil or military action.

During the era of the Judges, the high priest was regarded as an associate Judge. Eli, for example, is described as having “judged” Israel for forty years, which was his term as high priest. (1 Samuel 4:18 )

The high priest also served an expiatory purpose. A man guilty of involuntary manslaughter was required to remain in a city of refuge until the high priest had died. The death of the high priest expiated the original death that the guilty man had caused.

The high priest wore a series of specialized and symbolic garments that reflected his duties and responsibilities. (Exodus 28 ) These included:

* A sleeveless purple robe.

* The ephod

* The breastplate of judgment, containing twelve gemstones each representing one of the original sons of Israel.

* The turban which covered his head.

* A small pouch in which he carried the Urim and Thummim.

When he entered the Holy of Holies on the Day of Atonement, he was dressed in white linen and did not wear the much more costly garments listed above.

Today, Jesus Christ is our high priest.

The Weapons of Our Welfare

August 8, 2020

The Weapons of Our Warfare are Mighty to the Pulling Down of Strongholds

Breastplate of Righteousness (Protects your vital organs such as the heart and lungs).

The heart is responsible for pumping blood throughout the body.  If your heart does not function properly and at its optimum level, then it negatively affects every organ and organ system, such as the digestive system, integumentary (skin) system. Without the proper amount of blood flowing, the digestive system cannot properly digest food, and toxins build up in your colon and intestines.  These toxins come out through the skin in the form of rashes, acne, psoriasis, and eczema.

 

Moreover, the lungs are responsible for taking in air, which cleans the lungs from impurities. If the lungs are not functioning properly, then the air you intake is not being cleaned, and all of the cells that depend upon clean oxygen are operating at below maximum capacity. Furthermore, improper functioning lungs can lead to bronchitis and other respiratory illnesses.

 

The Word of God says out of the mouth flows all the issues of the heart. So if the heart is full of unforgiveness and bitterness, it will manifest through your physical body through sickness and disease and mentally through fear and doubt.  Therefore, it is essential that we put on the breastplate of righteousness to keep our hearts pure and free from unforgiveness, bitterness, envy, and jealousy.

If the heart is clogged with unforgiveness, bitterness, anger, then love cannot flow in and outward to others.

GOD, THE MASTER WEAVER

 

Weave the fabric together.

Different types

Different colors and sizes

All interwoven together

Make a beautiful tapestry.

 

A tapestry that was not in sight –

Just different fabric pieces in a bag.

Cloth that had no distinct form or shape,

But when fitly joined together developed into a beautiful colorful tapestry.

 

God, like the cloth, fitly joins the pieces of our life together and makes a beautiful tapestry – Masterpiece – a Divine work of art, that reflects His love, joy, and peace. Yes, God is the Master Weaver.
