Matthew 13:34-35 ~ The foundation of the world




Matthew 13:34-35

34 All these things Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed, he said nothing to them without a parable. 35 This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet:

“I will open my mouth in parables;

I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.”




Luke 7

11 Soon afterward he went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him.

12 As he drew near to the gate of the town, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow, and a considerable crowd from the town was with her. 13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.”

14 Then he came up and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” 15 And the dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother.

16 Fear seized them all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us!” and “God has visited his people!” 17 And this report about him spread through the whole of Judea and all the surrounding country.








What do people see as their Aspect of Jesus? Parables? Mystery?

Nain is highly over looked. A great crowd saw Jesus raise the young man from the dead in the town of Nain. Lazarus was a repeat. Andrew went and told Jesus in John's First Chapter - "Come See the Messiah!" Peter was told. First thing.

People have gone with what isn't Biblical for a long, long time... In Nain.



Jesus spoke in Parable to put forth A HUGE IDEA. He never jumped up on a rock and Screamed, "Messiah."

Instead, in front of huge crowd - Jesus raised a dead man being buried. A man who was going to be depended upon. Why? Good Question. This establishes Jesus is not just a stroll in the country to hear a Good Sermon. Jesus is declaring that Resurrection from the Dead, not seen since Elijah - another Biblical Prophecy - is very, very, very possible.

This the very early in the Gospel of Luke, 7th Chapter, who was written by Luke, who wrote The Acts of the Apostles and rather importantly here - Luke was a physician. Luke would know pretty well that raising the dead - is impossible. Did the Essenes writing the Dead Sea Scrolls know of this? I'd say - yes. 4Q52I and Q 7:22. The blind see. The deaf hear. The lame walk. The poor have good news preached. The dead are raised. The monastery of scribes did take in visitors.

Jesus spoke in parables. He certainly did. However His actions - spoke louder.

Is the Kingship of Jesus knowable? Therefore the Greatness of God's Son's Salvation!

1. “I came down from heaven”?’” (John 6:41,42)

2. “‘I tell you the truth,’ Jesus answered, ‘before Abraham was born, I am!’ (John 8:58)

3. Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.” (John 17:4,5)

4. The woman said, ‘I know that Messiah (called Christ) is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.’ Then Jesus declared, ‘I who speak to you am he.’” (John 4:25,26)

5. Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God.’ ‘Yes, it is as you say,’ Jesus replied.” (Matthew 26:63,64)

6. They all asked, ‘Are you then the Son of God?’ He replied, ‘You are right in saying I am.’” (Luke 22:67-70).

7. He said, “I am the Son of God.”’” (Matthew 27:42,43)

8. “And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, ‘Truly you are the Son of God.’” (Matthew 14:32,33)

9. Because I said, ‘I am God’s Son.’?” (John 10:36)

10 and 11. Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ.” (Matthew 16:15,16,20; see also Mark 8:29,30)



Who else reports Jesus is the Son of God?
The Bible and witnesses of Jesus




The earthquake. NBC reports.
http://www.nbcnews.com/id/47555983/ns/technology_and_science-science/t/quake-reveals-day-jesus-crucifixion-researchers-believe/#.VPKnUC6gZpg

To analyze earthquake activity in the region, geologist Jefferson Williams of Supersonic Geophysical and colleagues Markus Schwab and Achim Brauer of the German Research Center for Geosciences studied three cores from the beach of the Ein Gedi Spa adjacent to the Dead Sea.

Varves, which are annual layers of deposition in the sediments, reveal that at least two major earthquakes affected the core: a widespread earthquake in 31 B.C. and a seismic event that happened sometime between the years 26 and 36.

The latter period occurred during “the years when Pontius Pilate was procurator of Judea and when the earthquake of the Gospel of Matthew is historically constrained,” Williams said.
Advertise

"The day and date of the crucifixion (Good Friday) are known with a fair degree of precision," he said. But the year has been in question.

In terms of textual clues to the date of the crucifixion, Williams quoted a Nature paper authored by Colin Humphreys and Graeme Waddington. Williams summarized their work as follows:

All four gospels and Tacitus in Annals (XV, 44) agree that the crucifixion occurred when Pontius Pilate was procurator of Judea from A.D. 26 to 36.
All four gospels say the crucifixion occurred on a Friday.
All four gospels agree that Jesus died a few hours before the beginning of the Jewish Sabbath (nightfall on a Friday).
The synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) indicate that Jesus died before nightfall on the 14th day of Nisan, right before the start of the Passover meal.
John’s gospel differs from the synoptics, apparently indicating that Jesus died before nightfall on the 15th day of Nisan.

When data about the Jewish calendar and astronomical calculations are factored in, a handful of possible dates result, with Friday, April 3, 33 A.D., being the best match, according to the researchers. 


 


Matthew 27:54

When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!


Father God, prepare us to tell of Your Sacrifice. Prepare us to speak of Your Love. Help hearts be open to You and to Your Love. We ask in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

James 4:13-18 ~ the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. 18 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.



If you ask Bible believing people, what the Bible says about Wisdom, without a doubt the quote about asking God for Wisdom and receiving the Wisdom - will come first. First Chapter in the Book of James.

James 4:13-18
Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. 15 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. 18 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Which is interesting because these are the some of the characteristics of answered prayer and healing. Healing is rarely part of the Lightning Bolt of God from Declaration used by the Son of God. Not the name it and claim it of decades past. Instead, Pure Love. The empathy of the Father for the Prodigal Son. Believing the Will of God is good for us. Knowing the mystery of faith is the Power of God and His Will.

Where is another crucial passage on wisdom? The First Chapter of Luke's Gospel. A great message of Lent. Preparing for God to be truth and grace upon grace - living with us.

Luke 1 - John the Baptist - The wisdom of the just
For he will be great before the Lord. And he must not drink wine or strong drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb. 16 And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God, 17 and he will go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready for the Lord a people prepared.

The ن sounds like the word "noon" and stands for Nazarenes, an Arabic word for Christians.
God would agree; Nazarenes. This is the list of those preparing for Jesus to Live within us. And our response to want to create a soul where the Lord would want to dwell.

~ To be great before the Lord - perhaps someone consistently before Father God in Relationship and Expectation of His Goodness.
~ The disobedient learn the wisdom of the just.
~ Filled with the Holy Spirit.
~ Turning children to the Lord their God.
~ Not drinking wine and strong substance.

~ The Holy Spirit's Power in Elijah -
Elijah defended the worship of Yahweh over the god Baal (killing infants for prosperity -  horrible and works based); he raised the dead, brought fire down from the sky, and was taken up by a whirlwind. Elijah's prophesied of the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. The Works of the Spirit are through faith  conquering kingdoms - enforcing justice, obtaining promises, stopping the mouths of lions, quenching the power of fire, escaping the edge of the sword, made strong out of weakness, mighty in war, putting foreign armies to flight.

Luke 12 says don't be anxious. The Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.

Please Jesus Christ the Lord, we call to You. Amen.

Luke 12:8-12 ~ the Holy Spirit will teach you





Luke 12:8-12


“And I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man also will acknowledge before the angels of God, 9 but the one who denies me before men will be denied before the angels of God.

10 And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but the one who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.

11 And when they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not be anxious about how you should defend yourself or what you should say, 12 for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”




Psalm 100 

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
2 Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!

3 Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and not we ourselves;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!

5 For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.




We love to get the thoughts going about why we can't do - what we usually don't do.

I was once asked laughingly - never talk to the newcomers again at Church - they don't come back. This is Lent. Lend me your ears. Blessed are the ears that hear. Begin your Ambassadorship to Jesus again.

1. What Aspect of God do you like the best? 

Why did you pick your Church? Does your Church hold dear and fond memories pleasing to God?

Well, we all need to Worship God in His House every week. To be in Worship where you will be fed and encouraged and Loved by God. We recognize hunger pains - but what about Spiritual Hunger? Galatians 5.

One of the best ways to have appropriate response is to do what Winston Churchill famously did: Prepare Your Impromptu Responses.

You are more than likely either never to see the person again - or you will know them into  perpetuity. Get started.

Yes, Indeed. I do see the Passage about allowing the Holy Spirit to speak through His Promptings. Did you also see that is at the point of death? God does Not Mind if you do like the 70 Disciples, 2 were fired. Do your Ministry as two people who have prepared like a job interview - prepare and ask questions - then answer.

You can actually have fun with this. A tithe is time, talent and funding. Have fun. Create a talent for fun with time spent. Role play. You can be the busy mom. The bored teenager. The Grandmother who doesn't like the music. The Grandfather who says people in his day didn't wear shorts to Church. You can be the mom who desperately wants her husband to join. You can be the annoyed Denominational Repressed Spouse. You can be the Second Language Visitor. The intellectual. The way far out far to the left, Hippie.

The Gates of Heaven are always Open.
And there is a lot of Singing! And no one asks you if you like the music!

Enter His Gates with Praise!
The Fruit of the Spirit is Love.
A Blessing pouring fourth.

Malachi 3
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.



Father God, You are Good. Let us see You in each other as the Light of Christ shines. Let us be generous in our expectations and talents we each are given. Let us be moderate and gracious with our words when the words still must be said.

Blessings upon the hearts allowing for human mistakes and feeling confident in the Upbuilding of God in each other. May God keep us on the Path He would have for us. Guide us in His Love, Mercy, Joy and Wisdom. We ask for ourselves and our loved ones His Direction and Protection.

May you, as a Child of the Most High God, be strengthened in your many kindnesses. In Your desire to see Good. To love. To be loved. To know you are High in His sight. To know the work of bringing up to the Lord, those around you, has been a dedication of  yours. And you are winning, see this in faith each day. To make mistakes and to recover. Is genuine. Let Love be genuine.

We ask for ourselves and our loved ones His Direction and Protection. Bring us Forth Daily the Renewal of our Spirits. Lord Jesus we Adore You. Amen.

Matthew 22:35-40 ~ Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul


We do not live by bread alone, but by every Word proceeding from the mouth of God.

Matthew 22:35-40
Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

Notice with me, how are we going to Love God. 
Jesus told Peter, at their famous meeting after Death was destroyed - to Feed His Sheep. 
Mark 16 records Jesus saying - Go into The World. Preach the Gospel to - the whole creation.

Creation covers all of Genesis Chapter One. How we treat not just people - but the earth, resources, animals and the sky and mankind.

Bring salvation to Creation - do you think that by teaching others to care for their car, pet dog or cat, house, and being kind - that a narrow path might open? I do believe this is why God said really Give Good News to Creation.

Matthew 22  - Jesus said something very interesting. Love yourself. Love your neighbor. Why would Jesus choose to say neighbor and not Mankind? Every single version says 'neighbor'

God wants to save - The World. Through the redemption of Jesus Christ the Lord.

Father God tells us to love our neighbor.  Not Mankind.
Jesus could have easily said to us - 'save the world'. But He did not. 
Because Nothing You Could Ever Do Would Save You. 
Jesus - in Vast Love - Paid your price of Salvation.

Neighbor?

Luke 10
36 Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” 37 He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.”




Romans 8:26
In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.

God intercedes for us again.
Our part is made smaller, because we are not God.
Paul was guided by the Holy Spirit not to go various places.

Acts 16:7
When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to.




Primarily, God did not want His Job to overwhelm us. 
God said He would give us rest. 

We all are given talents and abilities.
God doesn't say that the person living and doing a job to feed his family - is not His Child or on His path. God is pleased when we seek to please God. The Body of Christ is diverse.





Jesus stood back and waited in firm expectation that people who Love. He waited on His own Brothers and His Disciples.


God is in charge of God's works. We are given a brain to discern God. And the people He gave us.




One of the best witnesses to Salvation was my late friend Randy Manti, Julie's husband. He had a smile and genuine Love for all the people he held the door open for at Church - from his wheelchair. Randy heard Edward and me in a fuss one Sunday about coolant for our air conditioner. Randi said - I have those tools come to my house. And once a year, Randi had us bring the liquid and he furnished the tools,  labor and even would rope a friend into coming with him.

Later, Gary Jenkins arranged a BBQ auction for a very ill Randy. And St. Luke's blessed Randy by canceling his high debt. Telling Randy they found his Christian attitude to his terrible pain - inspiring in their Christian Hospital. Saying they could see why Randy had people give him a BBQ.



So only Love our merciful neighbors?

Luke 6
27 “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. 29 To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. 31 And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.

32 “If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. 35 But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. 36 Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.

Love isn't necessarily an emotion.
People get so tangled up - Romans 7 explains what people say might be so - but the reason they get up on a soapbox is sometimes not the most inspiring or good motivation - as they say what's good.

And? So what. Once you have discernment, give that to God. Let Him carry this.

We don't have to be well treated to be courteous.  Inner Joy at the Goodness of Others moves us forward.
We don't have to be loved to want someone to have Good News.
 And we don't have to mourn if someone doesn't just adore us. 
We can surely wish them all the good God would give them. 
God's storehouses are never empty.


Pray for your not so much fun, critical person. At the other extreme, pray for Isis to end - Like God Would Hear You.  Give them a blessing Prayer. A hater shown respect, then opportunity to love and have a fulfilling life. Then really go fast on and bless someone else even closer. End the negative waves. Donald Sutherland had that right - end the war.



God wants what is Good from your heart. When the figs didn't bloom in season, God surely expected Fruit. We can find good fruit to give to Jesus.

God went forth looking for people like the Roman Centurion - who had Faith. And Jesus moved there. Narrow path. Dwell there.



Balance

God gave us another reason why we want to be merciful and love the people who show us Mercy.

If we give and give and give to give Love - we never give the other person a chance to grow up. Find their feet. Giving Love is good for people.

God wants all of us to have fruit. That is why He said to Love Yourself.

All people want to give back. If they don't, discern that they are not showing you mercy.


What do I see in Father God? He is willing to let me grow up. He does not let go of me. He does not unjustly condemn me. He stands up for me. Eternally. He assures me daily He loves me. He covers me with His Name. He gives me a Clear Path Up. He calls me Home to live with Him eternally. If I petition Father God, earnestly - I know I have been heard. He gives me strength to make right choices. Father God loves me. And Loves me.



Balance

Being Effective for Jesus?
Love God. Find His aspect that melts your heart.
Explain to the ones you Love what is so Good in God.

Blessing others - brings a Blessing
Creating a Person who is Loving
Loving makes a Path Forward

On His Path, we find Love, Joy, Peace. 

In a figless season, God will feed us.
We can find what is Good when we Look
And Thank God. 


God's Heaven has 12 Open Gates. God is Love.
God intends us to Live with Him. 


Our Father, Who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name,
Thy Kingdom Come,
Thy Will be done,
on earth as it is in Heaven,
Give us this day,
Our daily Bread,
Forgive us our Sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into Temptation.
Deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory.
Forever and ever. Amen.

Jesus, we ask in You, Amen.

Psalm 6 ~ we rise




Psalm 6 
Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed;
he will answer him from his holy heaven
with the saving might of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,

but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
8 They collapse and fall,
but we rise and stand upright.


Sometimes, you just do not want to comment. It just Hurts to see Love portrayed so horribly and so courageously.

This is the Bible in your hand. Today.

This is what people did for Scripture to exist for 400 hundred years beginning just 16 years after Jesus willingly opened His arms to Save the World.

God Loves His People and Wants Salvation through redeemed hearts open to His Love.



The brave faces of men condemned for loving Jesus. Unwilling to lie.


These men were conceived in God's Plan. Their parents were pleased when the baby began to move and kick inside their mother's womb. They had Grandparents who smiled for a year at their Creation and Blessed God. These men grew to Love Jesus enough - not to disregard His Love. These men knew something not behind a black mask - The Light of Jesus Christ is in mankind.  Life is from God and will be reclaimed.

These faces remind me of the young girl killed in Columbine High School. Has anyone forgotten. No. Reminding me of the Dallas family I know who took Bibles into China for 25 years and their small, underground Christian Church did not grow until Bird Flu. When the Bible bringers told their friends, they wouldn't take ex-patriot status to flee Bird Flu - instead they would stay with the people who had no where to go. The Church grew to 2,500 people. Because this is where Christianity Started. Prayer and Trust in God in adverse circumstances.


This has been an unusual week with the high number of comments on the Blog. Which is mostly appreciated. A kind lady commented on the need for prayer in all of our Churches sweeping the nation to pray.

Our Healing Class spoke about Isis and their extreme position on ending the planet. Bringing God Forth in human ideas of victory. Just Like Judas. Betrayal of a Human believing in God - for personal glory.

March the 2nd is a National Day to Pray to end Persecution of Christians.




Psalm 90
Lord, you have been our dwelling place
in all generations.
2 Before the mountains were brought forth,
or ever you had formed the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.




We have one first and best defense. Every Day.
And people have come to Jesus to ask Him how to do this effectively, for selfish reasons - James and John went to Jesus and virtually demanded to pray well. We have all kinds of books and ideas of Prayer. Jesus made that pretty simple.





Luke 11
“Father, hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come.
3Give us each day our daily bread,
4and forgive us our sins,
for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us.
And lead us not into temptation.”

5And he said to them, “Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me.."


Jesus is so real!

yet because of his impudence he will rise and give him whatever he needs!


Ask, Seek, Knock... David said, "Let me fall into the merciful hands of Father God!"

For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, it will be opened.



Now, Jesus walks on water. Heals All the sick. The Blind see. The Deaf hear. The lame walk. The Poor have Good News preached to them. Jesus as God, did not say - He won't say, "No." Or, "Wait." Jesus is so necessary - that the Dead Sea Scrolls contain this paragraph. Jesus is the Word of God. Full of Grace and Truth. The Truth, the Way, The Life.

Not our personal waiter. Son of God. He sits on the Mercy seat.

Father among you

Children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”


Yes, Jesus told us not to heap up empty phrases. Let's look at the meaning when we add on to Jesus' prayer and say,

Deliver us from evil,
For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory.
Forever and Ever. Amen.

And I add - In the Name of Jesus, we pray, Amen. Because Jesus told us to ask in His name.


 

What are we asking Jesus, when we pray this -

Father - we are in adoption - Your family covered in the Name of Jesus. Beloved.

Your Kingdom come - is Great! For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. We are agreeing, we expect GOOD from the One who is good.

Give us the Day! Today. Today is an important concept for the God of Creation of Time. Today we make the Day with God and giving Him the one thing, the only thing we can freely give God not given to us by Father God - Gratitude. Expectation and Thanks of Mercies Renewed.

Our Daily Bread. God is Living Bread of Life. Sufficient. Finding Good.

Forgive us our Sins. When we swing the Law like a club or beacon to ourselves - we will fall short. We will sin, we will covet, we will envy, we will imply, we will be prideful. We will sulk, we will swirl in guilt and soak and fail to improve. We will fail to grasp the Glory of God's Gift of Forgiveness, Inclusion. The full weight we can never, ever touch the Provision God has made for us. For you alone, personally. In Salvation. Jesus perfection paid your debt.

When we say forgive our sins - remember Isaiah told us - He heals our sins and bears our iniquities - this is all healing. God knows what we need before we ask. Ask anyway - like the Blind man Jesus waited to hear from.

As we forgive those who sin against us. We need help to do this. And this will kill and remove the root of bitterness. This makes a new path. This causes Hope to Build. Faith to Soar. Love to Heal All. We need His Grace to even touch the hem of this Robe. The one Robe too perfect to be torn, instead was tossed by rough hands as a prize at the foot of Love. One. Seamless with God. Jesus.

Lead us not into temptation. God wants to know if we think He will drop us on our heads. Do we Trust God. Do we honor what He tells us. Do we think we are more special and deserve a sin? Jesus knows Abba. He says, Forgive them, they know not what they do. Jesus as He died - mediates for us. Jesus knows God at His tether. Jerusalem ended in 70 A.D. - the natural life span of - God's Son. Jesus said, "Father forgive them. They are sheep almost without a Shepherd, have compassion on them. Feed them." Like He told Peter. Jesus IS LOVE.

Deliver us from evil. Well, we had to add those Words in to God's Perfect Word. Because from ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggie beasties, Good Lord Deliver us. I'm completely comfortable adding these words in. I'm for protection. But ya'll seriously. Jesus is the Word of God - there is not much we are big and mortal and tenacious enough to deal with in the Real Spiritual Realm. This is indeed God's Battle. His Word Created the Universe. Nothing we have - no device - is large enough to deal with what only God can do. His Name. Jesus. Is Lord.

For we REJOICE that the Kingdom, the Power and the GLORY are Jesus. This alignment is the one that is going to be Our Blessing.

With continued Prayer. What will happen to this? This horror. This travesty of the God who tells us yesterday, today and tomorrow HE is unchanging. Merciful. Slow to Anger. Rich in Mercy. And someone tell these hidden face murderers that the end of the world is the Son. The Sun. Read the Scriptures. We have no collapsing gravity. No moon falling. No red sky. Instead if you look on the internet - You see Vast Resources for Prayer. Hope. Faith. Love.

For years people tried to beat God down gullets. Fear. God Is Love. Love is important.

What can we do to ask God for a Reawakening of His Holy Spirit? Pray. Pray like CONVERSATION. Just start with the Lord's Prayer. God is chatty. That Bible is not a small Book. He wants Your love and Your thanks and Your conversation. God is interesting, Scripture fits all different situations.

Feel Discouraged in the world news? Read John 17. Today is God's Day. Millions of Years is one Day to God. Today John 17 - Jesus prays for you. Yes, He does.

Thank, Jesus. Amen.



Blessed be the name of the Lord. Jesus. Amen.

Isaiah 55:10-11 ~ My Word be that goes out from My Mouth; it shall not return to Me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.



Isaiah 55:10-11


10 “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
11 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.


Our Father God has a very long something to say in that Sentence. How difficult it would be to put a snow storm back in the cloud. Rather pointless to try.

God puts us on paths and not all of them lead, even in Careers, to happiness and joy.

However, if you do something you were asked to do - like President Reagan was asked to end a communist system that took the Faith of the people away from them. A God Plan - like Noah building a ship. Like Abram leaving his father's country to go where God called him - then you know the journey was correct and the twists and turns are part of Life.

You can even look back and say, "I learned. And I'm stronger today."

What God is teaching us if we let Him -

Ephesians 4
13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. 14 As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; 15 but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ

God asks us to Search For Wisdom. We see this as Moses goes further into the Exodus. And Joshua has learned from Moses. What Elijah taught Elisha.

Today is the Feast of Polycarp. He is regarded as the disciple of the Apostle John. He lived to be 86 years old and died in 177 A.D. Shines a light on how the generations are always 14 in Biblical times, doesn't it?

James 1:5
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

We are not all handed a great life and asked to do well. Some of us went this way or that. We joined Churches, moved, had jobs, new neighborhoods and changes. But I cannot say that I would do this differently.

Polycarp said as he died, "Eighty and six years I have served Him, and He has done me no wrong." God intends us to get stronger as we get older. God tells us to plant a seed like a mustard and the birds of the forest will land and have shelter there. You know what has a tiny, little seed and grows?


And this 360 foot tree arrives from an insignificant seed. The Sequoia arrives at a huge height in about fifty years and is magnificent in about a hundred and fifty years.

1 Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.

Remember with me, Heaven has old people in Heaven who watch children.

Zechariah 8
3"Thus says the LORD, 'I will return to Zion and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth, and the mountain of the LORD of hosts will be called the Holy Mountain.' 4"Thus says the LORD of hosts, 'Old men and old women will again sit in the streets of Jerusalem, each man with his staff in his hand because of age. 5'And the streets of the city will be filled with boys and girls playing in its streets.'

Proverbs 16
Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good,
and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.
21 The wise of heart is called discerning,
and sweetness of speech increases persuasiveness.
22 Good sense is a fountain of life to him who has it,
but the instruction of fools is folly.

23 The heart of the wise makes his speech judicious
and adds persuasiveness to his lips.
24 Gracious words are like a honeycomb,
sweetness to the soul and health to the body.

31 Gray hair is a crown of glory;
it is gained in a righteous life.
32 Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
33 The lot is cast into the lap,
but its every decision is from the Lord.


Jeremiah 31:13
Then young women will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.


What are we practicing for? In this Life. The Kingdom where the King is called Love.

This is to the standard we are establishing.

1 Corinthians 13
have not love, I gain nothing.


Ephesians 3
14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.



Father God, Creator of Weather - today we have a return of winter across many parts of the country.  For many spirits lag. Unless you are my son Cal, and you are traveling in a Colorado snow storm for the first time - with prayers for safety. We pray knowing that in You - we will go Forth. A new wind is coming. Spring nearby. Daily You renew us. Daily we Trust in You.

Thank You for giving us mercy and grace to the heights of the Heavens. Your Forgiveness. Let us do the work this day that is pleasing to Your sight. May the Words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart - be pleasing to You. You Are My Rock and My Redeemer. In Jesus. Amen.

About scripture-for-today.blogspot.com/

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He has saved all who call upon His name and rely on Him for His Grace. The Scriptures are living & active and are for understanding the Lord Almighty. Biblical readings are chosen from the Ecumenical Christian Church and the Nicene Council, 325 A.D., approved Apocrypha. People remember not just from reading, but by sight and orally- an image has been added as well as audio readings. God tends to link the passages together with fascinates - this blogger, Anne-Laurel Gardere, Member of Anglican Church of North America, part of the Church of England. Our Christian family is HopePointe Anglican Church of The Woodlands, Texas.
