Let us Rejoice!

My friends, this is, right now, at this time, the day the Lord has made! Let us REJOICE and be glad in it!
Let’s not allow the things we are facing today, to destroy our confidence in God’s love ❤️ for us!
You are His Beloved! You are the apple of His eye! He (Jesus) enjoys showing you His love, especially in the time of difficult situations!

Php 4:4 (ISV) Keep on rejoicing in the Lord at all times. I will say it again: Keep on rejoicing!

For the Lord is good and His mercy endures forever!

Jesus is Risen!

Let this sink into our hearts and minds, this Easter.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God arose from the dead on the 3rd day, just like He said He would!

The Resurrection

Luk 24:1-8 (KJV)  Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.

Luk 24:2  And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

Luk 24:3  And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

Luk 24:4  And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:

Luk 24:5  And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead?

Luk 24:6  He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

Luk 24:7  Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.

Luk 24:8  And they remembered his words,

Oh hallelujah! Let us remember His Words!

My friends, we have peace with God, because of the price that Jesus paid for our sins.

Happy Easter to you!

The God who is More than Enough!

The first instance of the name El Shaddai being used in the Bible is when God was speaking to Abram.
Genesis 17:1-5 (ISV) Gen 17:1 When Abram was 99 years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and announced, “I am God Almighty (El Shaddai). Live in constant awareness that I’m always with you, and be blameless.
Gen 17:2 I’ll establish my covenant between me and you, and I’ll greatly increase your numbers.”
Gen 17:3 Then Abram fell to the ground as God continued speaking to him.
Gen 17:4 “Look, I’ve made a covenant with you. You will be the father of many nations.
Gen 17:5 Your name is no longer to be Abram. Instead your name will be Abraham, since I’ll make you the father of many nations.

El Shaddai means Almighty God or the God who is more than enough!
He doesn’t have to wait on someone else for Him to do His job. He is not walking around saying, “If I just had some more power, health, wealth, stability, then I could answer their prayer.
No!

He says, I Am El Shaddai! I am the God of more than enough!
My friends, whatever your need is today. Present it to the Lord and know this. He is the God who can meet “ALL” of your needs!

No Greater Love ❤️

If February is the month of love ❤️  (and we should love one another), then we should also look at where the greatest love came from.

First off, did you know the very makeup of God and what he does, all stems from His love?  The Bible says in, 1Jn 4:8 (KJV) He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

The reason why God created the heaven and the earth and put man on it in the first place, was because he wanted to share his love with us.

Oh hallelujah! This is great news, my friends. 🙂

Look at the scripture setting, which this verse comes from. (I will show you it from the ISV translation, because it is easier English to read and understand for all of our international friends.)  Hold onto and meditate on the words in this scripture setting. They are life-changing! If we put this into practice in our daily walk with the Lord, Then surely our feet will be set upon the path of salvation. 🙂 Be blessed in all you do!

1Jn 4:7-21 (ISV) Dear friends, let us continually love one another, because love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born from God and knows God.
1Jn 4:8 The person who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
1Jn 4:9 This is how God’s love was revealed among us: God sent his unique Son into the world so that we might live through him.
1Jn 4:10 This is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.
1Jn 4:11 Dear friends, if this is the way God loved us, we must also love one another.
1Jn 4:12 No one has ever seen God. If we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us.
1Jn 4:13 This is how we know that we abide in him and he in us: he has given us his Spirit.
1Jn 4:14 We have seen for ourselves and can testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.
1Jn 4:15 God abides in the one who acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, and he abides in God.
1Jn 4:16 We have come to know and rely on the love that God has for us. God is love, and the person who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
1Jn 4:17 This is how love has been perfected among us: we will have confidence on the day of judgment because, during our time in this world, we are just like him.
1Jn 4:18 There is no fear where love exists. Rather, perfect love banishes fear, for fear involves punishment, and the person who lives in fear has not been perfected in love.
1Jn 4:19 We love because God first loved us.
1Jn 4:20 Whoever says, “I love God,” but hates his brother is a liar. The one who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love the God whom he has not seen.
1Jn 4:21 And this is the commandment that we have from him: the person who loves God must also love his brother. ❤️

And the Word became Flesh…He still Breathes-Life today!

John 1:1-4 (KJV) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2. The same was in the beginning with God.

3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

My friends, “The Word” was in the beginning with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Together, they created the heavens and the earth, as “The One True God!” This same “Word” breathe life into man and he became a living soul.

Very interesting when we come full-circle and see that the “Word” of God (the Bible) was also created by the breath of God. His Spirit, inspired the writers over a period of about 4,000 years, to write the things they wrote.

2 Timothy 3:16 (MKJV) All Scripture is God-breathed, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

So now when we ask God (with an open heart), to show us the “truth” in His Word. It becomes ALIVE to us, as His breath breathes life into our situation. It is as true and as full of life today, as it was when the writers wrote it down.

My friends, what do you have need of?

Whatever it is when you pray, know His breath (in this case – His Word) still breathes Life today. As you trust Him and meditate on His “Life-filled Word” you will begin to see your needs fulfilled in Jesus name, Amen and amen!

You are the Light unto…

In the beginning one of the first things God said – to be, was light! Gen 1:3 (MKJV) And God said, Let there be light. And there was light. As a result, the universes are still expanding today.

After the #creation and order was set into place. Now, His gives His Word to be a light to our feet, that is to our path. This way, we don’t fall into the snares of the evil one. But even more than that, it is so we can see the truth in His Word and follow Him to safety, security, and blessings in every area of our life. Psa 119:105 (MKJV) Your Word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.

During #Jesus ministry on the earth, He said this in Matthew 5:14-16 (MKJV) You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
Mat 5:15 Nor do men light a lamp and put it under the grain-measure, but on a lampstand. And it gives light to all who are in the house.
Mat 5:16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in Heaven.

Notice: We don’t shine the Light in peoples eyes, to blind them! Instead, we simply just do what “Light does,” we shine! In doing so, they see our “Good works” a.k.a. Our shine! It gives glory to the Father and as they see the light of the gospel, alive in us. It draws them toward the light and with a curious-open, but sometimes skeptical heart, they come inside the house and light is given to them, as well.

My friends, God has given us “His Glorious Light,” the gospel of His Son and it is “Light/Life” to them that find it!

You are truly, the light of the world, Jesus. And with Your light we have become like a  city that is set on a hill that cannot be hidden. Oh Hallelujah!

I Am the First and the Last!

Rev 1:8 (KJV) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

My friends, as far as God and gods go…Jesus says, He is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End, The One who “is,” the One who “was,” and the One who “shall come again!” He is the Almighty!

When Jesus says, He is the “Almighty, it is the Greek word…παντοκράτωρ! Transliterated into English as, pantokratōr and pronounced as – pan-tok-rat’-ore

It means; the all ruling “One,” that is, God (as absolute and universal sovereign): – Almighty, Omnipotent.

Wow! Jesus puts it straight out there! He leaves nothing to speculate about. He says, if you want to know who God is and the power He has, look no further than to Him. He is the All-sufficient, All-knowing, All-powerful God – The Almighty! Oh hallelujah!

But there is still one more hidden gem in this verse! It is the first 2 words…”I am!”

This is the same name or reference that Jesus told Moses to tell the children of Israel, when they asked, who sent you.

Exo 3:13-14 (KJV)  And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? Exo 3:14  And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

My friends, “I am” shows a present tense God! When Jesus was speaking about being the God who “is,” who “was,’ and who “is to come” did you notice He mentioned the present tense first?

He is the God of your “Now present situation!” Look to and believe Him and see your needs met!
