Matthew 7:13-21 ~ Enter by the narrow gate.



Matthew 7:13-21

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
 
15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. 18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus you will recognize them by their fruits.

21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

And let's ask a difficult question. Why does it say:

Romans 10:13
For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.


Romans 10:13 is repeated in Acts 2:21 and in Joel 2.

What is the disparity between wide salvation and the narrow gate? It is was it all comes down to. The ultimate question. Do you believe the Lord will He save you. Belief is part of salvation. Nations, nations will live in the Kingdom of Heaven. But without belief....some day when nations and multitudes come to the valley of decision, there will be a time when you and God are fully known to one another. A glorious day. Jesus, our mediator, will judge.

Where do you stand in your faith?
 
Salvation is a gift from God Almighty.

No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him.

Belief grows into worship, into action. Man can debate Salvation. Ultimately, finally and completely it is God's Plan.






The Salvation Prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner. I have done things not pleasing to You. I have lived my life for myself. I am sorry and I repent. I ask you to forgive me. I believe You died on the cross for me, to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to you now and ask You to live in me. I give You my life. Help me to live every day in a way pleasing to You.

 I love you, Lord, and I thank you that I will spend all eternity with you. Amen in Jesus.

Jonah 1:1-2:2 ~ I called out to the Lord, out of my distress, and He answered me

Jonah from the Sistine Chapel, by Michelangelo



Jonah 1:1-2:2


1 Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, 2 “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and call out against it, for their evil [evil or disaster] has come up before me.” 3 But Jonah rose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. He went down to Joppa and found a ship going to Tarshish. So he paid the fare and went on board, to go with them to Tarshish, away from the presence of the Lord.

4 But the Lord hurled a great wind upon the sea, and there was a mighty tempest on the sea, so that the ship threatened to break up. 5 Then the mariners were afraid, and each cried out to his god. And they hurled the cargo that was in the ship into the sea to lighten it for them. But Jonah had gone down into the inner part of the ship and had lain down and was fast asleep. 6 So the captain came and said to him, “What do you mean, you sleeper? Arise, call out to your god! Perhaps the god will give a thought to us, that we may not perish.”

7 And they said to one another, “Come, let us cast lots, that we may know on whose account this evil has come upon us.” So they cast lots, and the lot fell on Jonah (Proverbs 16). 8 Then they said to him, “Tell us on whose account this evil has come upon us. What is your occupation? And where do you come from? What is your country? And of what people are you?” 9 And he said to them, “I am a Hebrew, and I fear the Lord, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the dry land.” 10 Then the men were exceedingly afraid and said to him, “What is this that you have done!” For the men knew that he was fleeing from the presence of the Lord, because he had told them.

11 Then they said to him, “What shall we do to you, that the sea may quiet down for us?” For the sea grew more and more tempestuous. 12 He said to them, “Pick me up and hurl me into the sea; then the sea will quiet down for you, for I know it is because of me that this great tempest has come upon you.” 13 Nevertheless, the men rowed hard [the men dug in their oars] to get back to dry land, but they could not, for the sea grew more and more tempestuous against them.
14 Therefore they called out to the Lord, “O Lord, let us not perish for this man's life, and lay not on us innocent blood, for you, O Lord, have done as it pleased you.” 15 So they picked up Jonah and hurled him into the sea, and the sea ceased from its raging. 16 Then the men feared the Lord exceedingly, and they offered a sacrifice to the Lord and made vows.

17 And the Lord appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

Jonah – Chapter 2:1-2

Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the belly of the fish, 2 saying,“I called out to the Lord, out of my distress, and he answered me; out of the belly of Sheol I cried, and you heard my voice."


The Jonah witness bothers people. It sounds like it should begin, “once upon a time.” Great for the kiddies in Sunday School. As Christians we should remember disciples asked Jesus who would be good enough to have salvation, He replied. “All things are possible with God.”

Sooner or later, you will have a Jonah story in your own life. This story is bigger than a fish tale, it is about having a personal conversation with God, not in your brain which isn’t going to survive death, but in the essence of your being – your soul.

We’ve had discussions in the past, that if you’ve lost a child, have a serious illness, something that causes a lot of contemplation – we wonder if we are being punished. No, Jesus Christ died for your sins; you need no further redemption upon believing you are, personally, saved by the Lord Jesus.

When Christians believe they are saved, how do they know? Christians in Bible study have this conversation a lot. The reply is usually this, “you know what you know, what you know.” It describes a deep inner conviction. Unshakable.

Jonah does not want to go into the Assyrian Empire and help the enemy. Just as Winston Churchill would not have wanted to go to Berlin and preach to the German people. Jonah is convinced this is wrong, is too big for him, will ostracize him from the good opinion of his people, sounds nuts and will endanger him. Jonah has a big dilemma. Jonah must have decided God was not asking him something out of line with God’s nature. It did not violate anything he had learned about God, His nature or His word. Jonah decided to use his option God gave him – his free will.

And Jonah’s free will works. Jonah is traveling far and away. Until there is a crisis and every person on board begins to have a situation where they reach out desperately in their belief in their higher power. Paul would have called this their Unknown God. We might call this what the entire Scripture says is true – God’s unshakable Plan. Jesus would probably say this is His promise of “ask and the door will opened for you.”

The men on the ship are 1. Crying out to God. 2. Understanding only by spiritual conviction what the problem is. 3. Seeking to save Jonah’s life. 4. Placing Jonah’s safety before all the ship. Mercy before sacrifice, even at the cost of their lives.


Remember Jesus’ advice to Martha in Luke 10:38-42, the better portion will not be taken away from people seeking the Lord. Jonah finally decides his life is not more important than other men. He offers to do God’s will, even if it will kill him.

So many people are very afraid of doing God’s will and trusting God for exactly the reasons of the Jonah story. It points to a fear button of committing themselves to God. God Will Make Them Uncomfortable. So… NO. Jonah wasn’t forced into doing God’s will. Jonah was grown into placing himself in God’s hands with powerful results. At the end of Jonah’s life, there is no doubt, he thanked God for being part of his life.

The story of the Scriptures is always God’s will is done. In all situations, God hears our voice, we are not left without His help.



Father God,
We thank You.
Amen in the Name of Jesus.

Matthew 12:15-21 ~ in His name the Gentiles will hope




Matthew 12:15-21


And many followed him, and he healed them all 16 and ordered them not to make him known. 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah [42:1-3]:

18 “Behold, my servant whom I have chosen,
my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased.
I will put my Spirit upon him,
and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
19 He will not quarrel or cry aloud,
nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets;
20 a bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not quench,
until he brings justice to victory;
21 and in his name the Gentiles will hope.”





I'd been a Christian for more than two decades when it was pointed out to me how many times the Scriptures said "He healed them all." I remembered a lot of healings, the ones written about in more than a few sentences. Yet that small phrase "healed them all". Sometimes Scripture says they sought to touch Him & not just Jesus reaching out. Sometimes He physically touched them, and it also says merely, "He healed them all."

Sure, a lot of people were ill. When you think about the age: slavery, war, destruction, highway robbery, people born blind & the parable of the Good Samaritan - this was a difficult time. Not just the people who were deaf, blind, ill, but the sorrow of the people who had seen difficult things happen to loved ones. Children who died, loved ones who died in child birth, people who were well and suddenly died of fever. There are a lot of stipulations in the Bible for the fatherless and the widow.

What does it mean, "He healed them all?" The Word of God, proclaimed in love. The hopeless, the fearful, the lonely & the cut to the quick. The ones who had heard the Word of God in their youth - life had stamped on their seed of hope. The fruit of circumstance and the weed of bitterness, the joy found in life, had robbed them of their greatest need - the need of God. Jesus fulfilled their blindness - physically & spiritually. The deaf were healed. The poor had hope, God cares for them. He healed them all.

These people who found Jesus had put aside the every day of life, they sought Him. Jesus didn't stay to quarrel, debate the Pharisees, shock, anger, and create a stir - Jesus wasn't a sidewalk hack or a temperamental star.

No, Jesus repaired the bruised reed. Jesus rekindled the flickering flame, the light became a torch. Jesus gave hope & mercy to the word - justice. Jesus didn't select a few, the light of Jesus Christ is for all. Not just to the eyes blessed to see Him, but those who look to Him in faith, after He died, and today.

“Behold, my servant whom I have chosen,
my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased.
I will put my Spirit upon him,
and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles.
19 He will not quarrel or cry aloud,
nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets;
20 a bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not quench,
until he brings justice to victory;
21 and in his name the Gentiles will hope.”




Father God,
We in hope, expectation of You, submit our prayer requests, knowing You have heard and You will answer.

Just as You, Father, know our names as Jesus did in the Gospels, You know what concerns we have. We entrust this to You.

Let the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, my Rock and Redeemer.

We look to Your Love.

Amen in Jesus.

Psalm 91 ~ When he calls to me, I will answer him




Painted by Greg Olson


Psalm 91


1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
5 You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only look with your eyes
and see the recompense of the wicked.

9 Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—
the Most High, who is my refuge—
10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.
12 On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the adder;
the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.

14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.
15 When he calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.

Akiane's painting matches the Shroud of Turin and is a possible explanation of the physical change in Jesus from His living form and His Heavenly form.



Father God and Jesus have answered so many prayers.

They love to see Faith in the people who will have faith
and will seek Jesus
and will pray.

More people saw Jesus so willing and they went to Jesus as well.




Father God,

We ask You, please heal, fix, care for and solve the desires of our Heart. Pray with us Jesus and we will renew our joy in Your Will.

In the Name of Jesus. Amen.

Psalm 23 ~ The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want

Billy Graham has demonstrated a single candle in a football stadium reflects a Light of Jesus Christ and has enormous effect. Inspiring many to do amazing feats of Christ Jesus.


Psalm 23


1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.

3 He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwellf in the house of the Lord
forever.


Today I went to a Bible Study Video done by Judith MacNutt. The topic was fear. A timely topic when yesterday's post was on Hebrews 3 and Luke 4, the beginning of Jesus' ministry was surpassing the temptation of 40 days. Judith MacNutt said the desert is formidable and Jesus overcomes all things. All things are under His feet.

Was Jesus afraid during the temptation?





The Children of Israel were given amazing passage through the waters of the Red Sea.


Exodus 14:22
And the people of Israel went into the midst of the sea on dry ground, the waters being a wall to them on their right hand and on their left.

In times of Trouble, the children of God have trepidation.

When the Angel of the Lord appears, usually words are few and needed:

"Fear not."

Jesus is before Abraham. Jesus is not afraid. He has His Father. Perfect Love casts out fear.

2 Chronicles 16:9
For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless toward him.



Jesus knew something very important.


John 1

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through 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. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

9 The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.

Jesus has given us the Promises of His Father. Each day we are changed as new creations of Jesus Christ to be His eternally.

Psalm 3
From the Lord comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people.



Father God,

We not cease to give thanks for Jesus Christ. And are pleased to always remember to be in conversation with You.

You are the father of Jesus Christ Lord. Father of Glory.

We ask for the Holy Spirit of Wisdom and of revelation of You, the Living God in each day of our eternal lives.

Let us live the Light of Jesus, having our hearts enlightened, the hope of Salvation is here. The saints' uncomparible riches of Your glorious inheritance,

To know each day, the immeasurable greatness of You power toward us who believe.

To see the promise of Greater Workers Jesus gave us, according to the working of His great might You worked in Christ when You raised Him from the dead and seated Him at his right hand in the heavenly places.

We pray to live each day knowing Jesus far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.

We will live eternity today, putting all things under Yours feet and know You head over all things, to the Church.

We will live the Fullness of Jesus. His body, the fullness of Jesus Christ Lord of All who fills all in all. Amen and Amen. Glory to Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 3 ~ Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness



 

Hebrews 3


Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, 2 who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God's house.

3 For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses—as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself. 4 (For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.)

 5 Now Moses was faithful in all God's house as a servant, to testify to the things that were to be spoken later, 6 but Christ is faithful over God's house as a son.


 And we are his house if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.





7 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says,

“Today, if you hear his voice,

do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
on the day of testing in the wilderness,

where your fathers put me to the test
and saw my works for forty years.

Therefore I was provoked with that generation,
and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart;
they have not known my ways.’

As I swore in my wrath,
‘They shall not enter my rest.’”

12 Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.

13 But exhort one another every day,
as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.

14 For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end.

 15 As it is said,


“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

16 For who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not all those who left Egypt led by Moses? 17 And with whom was he provoked for forty years?

 Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient? 19 So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.








If Jesus were to pair Hebrews 3 - where the obvious message we take away is give your all to God every day - what would He pair this with?


Jesus might use Luke 4

When did Jesus appear not to offer to Father God - today?


Luke 4

And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness 2 for forty days, being tempted by the devil.

And he ate nothing during those days. And when they were ended, he was hungry. 3 The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” 4 And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone.’” 5 And the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, 6 and said to him, “To you I will give all this authority and their glory, for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will. 7 If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.” 8 And Jesus answered him, “It is written,

“‘You shall worship the Lord your God,
and him only shall you serve.’”

9 And he took him to Jerusalem and set him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, 10 for it is written,

“‘He will command his angels concerning you,
to guard you,’

11 and

“‘On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.’”

12 And Jesus answered him, “It is said, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’” 13 And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him until an opportune time.




Why would this be part of Jesus' life and ministry?

Jesus is God. Nothing is impossible to Jesus. Jesus arrived willingly to walk this life with Joy. God would and could see everyday in Joy.

Jesus went out the wilderness to realize what He did not want His ministry to be.

In this Temptation, Jesus puts down:

1. Being asked by evil to do a useful sign. Jesus has rejected a suggestion from evil. For any reason.

2. To harm Himself. Evil has asked Jesus to do harm to Himself. (Making a mockery of Salvation.)

3. To do an action in sheer public horror when The Temple is Life and Health and God.

4. To be grandiose and show instead of nurturing. Make claims of Self glorification. Jesus came to Glorify His Father.

5. To manipulate with lies.

6. The devil responded to the Word of God by leaving.




How did Jesus do? He was clearly demonstrating the decision never to be pushed by evil or feel He must change evil with proofs.

Jesus was polite.

Jesus did not bother trying to teach the evil the fact Scripture was twisted for purpose of control.

Jesus did this showing He is the Way, Truth, Life.

And what did the Word of God say for passing through and leaving evil?

Luke 4
14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit.

And then Jesus and His Word of being God had a reaction:

Luke 4:14b and 15
and a report about him went out through all the surrounding country. 15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.



Our Father,


You are in Heaven,
Holy is Your Name.

Give us this day, our daily Bread.

Forgive me my sins,
as I forgive those who sin against me.

Lead us not into temptation, deliver us from evil.

For Your's is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory. Forever Amen.

Thank You for Jesus, cover us in His name. Amen.

Matthew 3:13-17 ~ “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”





Westminster Abbey - a work of God.

God buries His workmen, but carries on His work.
-Charles Wesley

England has one King who is a Saint. Edward the Confessor reigned 24 years, 8 June 1042 – 5 January 1066. A very unlikely king, Edward was the seventh son of Æthelred the Unready, and the first by his second wife, Emma of Normandy. What God plans to do, God Will. Edward is not recorded as being interested in art and books, but Westminster Abbey explains he was an innovating and generous patron of the Church.

Edward the Confessor was the first Anglo-Saxon and the only King of England to be Canonized  7 February 1161.

Westminster Abbey was still seeing construction in 1725. Further rebuilding, restoration continued in the 19th century.








Cathedrals tell us of the Magnificence of a Living God.
Beauty and Magnificence are from His Throne.
We build our lives knowing we will exit this temporary life.
God builds only upon Eternity.
























Works of God


Westminster Abbey is an important and enduring work of God. According to oral history, the site began as a vision of St Peter was seen. In the 7th century, a Church was built. And in 1042 A.D., King Edward the Saint began to build St. Peter at Westminster.

King Edward left no children and left England to his nephew, William the Conqueror. Like Charles Wesley said, "God buries His workmen, but carries on His work."



And there is, of course, a Way, Truth and Life of Jesus in this.
Who, as Lord of All, would of course, be the most important part of this Post.

Westminster is not remembered to be named for St. Peter. King Edward never danced naked here. Westminster is not remembered to be named for St. Edward. Westminster was not re-named for William the Conqueror. Westminster is remembered as enduring. Like the Church of Jesus. Proclaimed by Jesus in Caesarea, before any Church was conceived.

The obedience of servants to God, in His Word, created a Work of God.

Jesus, as part of Father God, chose to be obedient. Jesus was obedient to God.








Let's consider the status of Jesus as God.
The Importance of Jesus as God. The Oneness Jesus tells us of His Glory.

In Creation, God wants Life.
God speaks the Word of God and Jesus is manifest Word of God.
Father God is above All. Jesus is created.

And over the water, the Holy Spirit hovers.

All the oneness of God is in Creation.

Father God glorifies His Son. Jesus seeks the Glory of His Father. 
Barnabus is pleased. The Son of Encouragement.  An Aspect of God. 

We learn later through the Steadfast Love of God to all generations, Jesus is Living Water. We see the completion of the Creation story - how close God is.


Matthew 3:13-17

13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. 14 John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”

15 But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented.

16 And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him;

17 and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”










Participating in a Work of God.



Moses is always remembered in the Exodus.
And yet, the Exodus is a Work of God.
Quieter, not making the movies, is Joshua.
Yeshua resumes the work of Joshua.

When we say the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand, we are saying yesterday, today and tomorrow.

All we have to do to participate in a Work of God, is ageless.
We do exactly what the people did after Jesus returned Victorious from death.
We believe in our Hearts and confess with our mouths "Jesus is Lord."

And each day we realize we are living the Lord's Prayer, when we say, "Your Will be done on earth, as in Heaven."

At the end of the day we can smile, as we put our head on the pillow, knowing we pleased Father God.




Father God,

You are my God. You are merciful. Thank You, You listen to me and answer.
You are the Helper and You are God.

All my life, I pray asking You to pray with me.

Thank You, you are good us us all and forgiving.
You are filled and full with constant love to all who pray to You.

We rest in times of trouble, because we know You answer prayers.
There is no God apart from You.

Help this time and this world to ask of You.
Fill them with wonder and care at Your Greatness.

You are mighty and do wonderful things;
you alone are God.

Each day.
Teach me, Lord, what you want me to do,
and I will obey you faithfully;
teach me to serve you with complete devotion.

I praise you with all my heart, O Lord my God;
I will proclaim your greatness forever.

How great is your constant love for me!
You have saved me from the grave itself.

You, O Lord, are a merciful and loving God,
always patient, always kind and faithful.

I Bless Jesus. Thank You.
You lift up your smile to me and have mercy on me;
strengthen me and save me.

Amazing Father God,
You have given me comfort and help.

Thanks be unto God our Father. In Jesus. Amen.

Zechariah 8:16,17 ~ These are the things that you shall do



A Special Love Letter From Jesus Christ

If this life is to determine our soul's talents to Father God, we bring Him our soul. God made us in His image to create. Everything we should do is inspired by Father God.

And if we read God's Letters to us as uniquely personal; We believe Jesus gave His life for me by opening His Arms on the Cross for me. Then we believe, the Bible is written for me.

 



What would Father God tell me specifically to do?

Zechariah 8:16
These are the things that you shall do: Speak the truth to one another.


What is the value God places on truth?

John 14:6

Jesus said to him, “I am
the way,
and the truth,
and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me."






To what depth should we speak the truth.

To ourselves and God:

Matthew 6:6
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.


Speak the truth at home.


When conflict is arriving, even at home:

Galatians 4:16
Have I then become your enemy by telling you the truth?


To explain the story better and more quickly:

Exodus 20:16
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.


Zechariah 8 is about Heaven. A rare glimpse of life in Heaven. And starts here:

Zechariah 8

16 These are the things that you shall do: Speak the truth to one another; render in your gates [your own home] judgments that are true and make for peace.

Jesus brings mercy with His Truth!!! We live making decisions. Wisdom cries out make wise choices.






Matthew 3, Mark 1, John 1, Luke 3 Tell us to make Straight Paths for Father God. And in doing so ask for blessings on others. We need the rich mercy of Jesus for ourselves. Always.

Zechariah 8
16 These are the things that you shall do: Speak the truth to one another; render in your gates judgments that are true and make for peace;

17 do not devise evil in your hearts against one another, and love no false oath, for all these things I hate, declares the Lord.”

In true difficulties, we usually fuss. Blessing someone far away is never wrong! And resting our uptight concerns with God - a Blessing for us. God is for us. Rest.

Romans 12:19
Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”




Father God,

When Your Great Mercy covers me in Highest Name of Jesus, I am righteous before You and given the Highest Love and Help. Thank You for Jesus.

We pray Straight Paths in life when we do not understand, we lean upon You. Thank You for Your Protection. Let the Name of Jesus cover me always, always, always. Thank You, Father.

Let Your Great Name of Jesus King of Kings cover my loved ones, the people You give me and this Nation of People in Churches, Schools, Work, Communities and the World calling upon Jesus have more Holy Spirit by asking in the Name of 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

The Bible is unique; comprised of 80 separate books, & written over a period of thousands of years by more than 40 writers with one Author, spanning the centuries, different states of peace & war & different situations in life.
