Reading Scripture helps us know God's Love. Every Bible verse is written for you. Jesus Christ is all mankind's Light. John 1!

Psaligm 147 ~ His Word runs swiftly



Psalm 147




1 Praise the LORD! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.

2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the outcasts of Israel. 
3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. 4
He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names. 
5 Great is our Lord, 
and abundant in power; 
his understanding is beyond measure. 
6 The LORD lifts up the humble; he casts the wicked to the ground. 


7 Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving; make melody to our God on the lyre! 
8 He covers the heavens with clouds;
he prepares rain for the earth; 
he makes grass grow on the hills.
9 He gives to the beasts their food,
and to the young ravens that cry. 
10 His delight is not in the strength of the horse, 
nor his pleasure in the legs of a man,

11 But the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love. 

12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion!
13 For he strengthens the bars of your gates;
he blesses your children within you. 
14 He makes peace in your borders; 
he fills you with the finest of the wheat. 
15 He sends out his command to the earth; 
his word runs swiftly. 

16 He gives snow like wool; 
he scatters hoarfrost like ashes. 
17 He hurls down his crystals of ice like crumbs; who can stand before his cold? 
18 He sends out his word, and melts them;
 he makes his wind blow and the waters flow. 
19 He declares his word to Jacob, his statutes and rules to Israel. 
20 He has not dealt thus with any other nation; they do not know his rules. 





March has come and gone like the Lion and Lamb March is known to be.

This Portion of the Word of God is balm. The soothing Good News Father God is charge. Today is going to be ok. Our Father has not brought you so far to drop you on your head. God has not abandoned you. God knows our cares and anxieties before they even occur. And God, of course, is part of us overcoming.

We have a choice. We can be Daniel, who believes God will triumph in all circumstances. We can be Peter who will stand, fall or swim to meet Jesus. Peter even goes forth when Peter thinks he has only a vision of the jail allowing him to leave. We can choose to let our storm gather anxiety, or we can make the larger prayer and decide to stand on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ. Do the work Jesus has given us to do - Believe.

Mark 4

37  And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. 38 But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” 39 And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?”


Abba Father,
You are the Compass of North, South, East and West.
The Cross intersects mankind meeting God through the Lamb of God, Jesus.

In Jesus, we have a choice to stand on the firm foundation

and not to stay in the boat of storm and doubt.

We will forgo fleeting emotion like a shower and we will believe Jesus Christ.


And we will visualize Jesus calming the storm, helping Peter to stand on the impossible and be secure.


Giving thanks for God allowing us time and forbearance for our past flaws, sins and weaknesses.

And leaning upon God to help us to strive more ably. Getting on with our perseverance. Telling You,
Thank You, Father. We agree with the Words of Jesus, "Rise up."

We will picture rising up, standing with Jesus, telling Him we love Jesus. We will picture

our loved ones standing up. And we will rest with the Lord for His care and answers. Letting
God be our Father and providing His answers. 

Knowing our prayers touch others' prayers and seeing we form this prayer bond to Jesus Christ eternal. Giving thanks for Travis, who made the excellent point today our great artists, take what is sorrowful and make Joy, Love and Peace. Gratitude for healing to the God who sustains us, daily with His Word. And how wonderful to receive Wisdom in conversation as from the Lord. Jesus is the Light of the world and of mankind.


We will rise up in Jesus Christ. Amen.

Psalm 91 ~ The Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.



2 Thessalonians 3:3
But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.


Psalm 91




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.”



Today we had Psalm 91, again.
 From time to time the reading repeats. I do not find this as a flaw, instead I see this as a time to reflect again. Read the verses and let them flower and grow within me.




New believers have in the Word of God, the Bible was written by the people who did not seemingly triumph or live well. Didn't the wicked and evil men - triumph. Really?



History proves the agenda of men passed on and the Will of God Goes Forth.


Monuments today for the political leaders doing the regular leading thing?
Few sculptures of the scoffers. Less interest in their tombs.  Can you picture the government people leading the world?

See Paul's Tomb the Vatican excavated his tomb from the 1930s until the 1960s. Amazing.


The steadfastness of Christ and then the others


Pontius Pilate was so erased in History - we had the idea until the 1960s, he did not exist but recent archaeological records proved otherwise.

Who was the famous man Paul spoke to when the unnamed Sadduceen council arrested our PAUL ? Well if you look up that man, you find in Acts 23, that is Governor Felix. Which man does history honor?

High priest Ananias? His house was found in ruins, at the sack of Jerusalem in 70 A.D; His existence was doubted, as well, until the Talmud Records were found of the Sadduceen Council, for this era of Jesus walking the earth, in Scotland. These record the name of Mary's father. And say they were very concerned about Jesus' miracles and insurrection.

Capernaum.. Jesus' adult home town, picked as a land flowed with milk and honey, on the shores of the sea of Galilee, that town survived and thrived - avoiding war until the 13th century. Capernaum.



The Word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored.
There was no doubt Roman Emperors always win.

The triumph of Christianity is actually a very remarkable historical phenomenon.

Ian Wilson records a letter from a Jewish rabbi, of Lyracanthra, saying it would be the end of Judaism because of the incredible miracles of healing, restoration, life transformation and complete hope. These are letters confirming the Gospels show the Rabbi to be extremely unhappy. Josephus, the Israeli General turned traitor, turned Historian says Jesus was the Christ and his brother James formed the later Christian Church until martyred in 62 AD.






People you might not have heard of - and the world loved - and -yet- we can't place their face.

Trajan (c. 53 - 117) Philosopher Pliny the Younger's letter to Trajan on the subject of the Christians and the response of Trajan to Pliny the Younger. On Early Christian Writings. How to torture Christians to discredit the claims of Jesus Christ.

Hadrian (c. 76 - 138) Foxe's Book of Martyrs -- Persecution Under Trajen...... The forenamed authors, Antoninus and Equilius

Antoninus Pius (c. 86 - 161) Instead of stirring up persecution against the Christians, he extended to them the strong hand of his protection throughout the empire. Rather than give occasion to that oppression which he regarded as inseparable from an emperor's progress through his dominions, he was content to spend all the years of his reign in Rome, or its neighborhood. Under his patronage the science of jurisprudence was cultivated by men of high ability, and a number of humane and equitable enactments were passed in his name. 161 – 180 166 Christian persecution returned - The period was one of ever-increasing calamities. The earthquakes which had alarmed Asia under Antoninus were but the prelude to more serious convulsions. The Tiber rose to an unprecedented height and swept away the public granaries. This was followed by a famine, and that by a pestilence, which spread from Egypt and Ethiopia westward. Everywhere on the frontiers there were murmurs of insurrection or invasion. The year 166 was long known as the "annus calamitosus," and it was in that year that the persecution broke out and that Justin suffered. These calamities roused the superstition of the great mass of the people, and a wild fanaticism succeeded to an epicurean atheism. The gods were wrath, and what had roused their anger but the presence of those who denied them?

Marcus Aurelius (c. 121 - 180) The Thundering Legion incident (174)

During the war with the Quadi in 174 there took place the famous incident of the Thundering Legion (Legio Fulminatrix, Fulminea, Fulminata) which has been a cause of frequent controversy between Christian and non-Christian writers. The Roman army was surrounded by enemies with no chance of escape, when a storm burst. The rain poured down in refreshing showers on the Romans, while the enemy were scattered with lightning and hail. The parched and famishing Romans received the saving drops first on their faces and parched throats, and afterwards in their helmets and shields, to refresh their horses. Marcus obtained a glorious victory as a result of this extraordinary event, and his enemies were hopelessly overthrown.

That such an event did really happen is attested both by pagan and Christian writers. The former attribute the occurrence either to magic (Dion Cassius, LXXI, 8-10) or to the prayers of the emperor (Capitolinus, "Vita Marci", XXIV; Themistius, "Orat. XV ad Theod"; Claudian, "De Sext. Cons. Hon.", V, 340 sqq.; "Sibyl. Orac.", ed. Alezandre, XII, 196 sqq. Cf. Bellori, "La Colonne Antonine", and Eckhel, "Doctrina Nummorum", III, 64). The Christian writers attributed the fact to the prayers of the Christians who were in the army (Claudius Apollinaris in Eusebius, Church History V.5; Tertullian, "Apol.", v; ad Seap. c. iv), and soon there grew up a legend to the effect that in consequence of this miracle the emperor put a stop to the persecution of the Christians (cf. Euseb. and Tert. opp cit.).

It must be conceded that the testimony of Claudius is the most valuable of all that we possess, as he wrote within a few years of the event, and that all credit must be given to the prayers of the Christians, though it does not necessarily follow that we should accept the elaborate detail of the story as given by Tertullian and later writers 161 - 169

Lucius Verus (co-emperor) (c. 130 - 169) with Marcus Aurelius
180 - 192

Commodus (c. 161 - 192) All these who failed to follow the decree were brought to the Senate and were tried. This decree was a forceful attempt to put down Christians completely. But the followers who believed in Jesus Christ refused to accept this and many were ready to face the trial. "The Passion of the Scillitan Martyrs" written.

Persecution slows down -

Pertinax (193)

Didius Julianus (193) .

Septimius Severus (193-211) Edict makes it illegal to convert to Christianity; persecution especially in North Africa, ca. 203: Perpetua & Felicity martyred in Carthage (North Africa)

All refuse and are tortured and put to death. Diocletian sends troops to Turkey to place the Bishop Nicholas (also known as St. Nicholas or, in German, Santa Claus, in prison.

Galerius (305-311)
Licinius (311-323) 311: Edict of Galerius: toleration for Christians, allowing them to worship openly



 And Then - History Always Remembers Constantine


Constantine (307-337) 313: Edict of Constantine (Edict of Milan): toleration for all religions, including Christianity; ends persecutions

Constantine's position on the religions traditionally practiced in Rome evolved during his reign. At first he prohibited the construction of new temples and tolerated traditional sacrifices; by the end of his reign, he had begun to order the pillaging and tearing down of Roman temples. The day Christianity officially arrived in the Roman Empire was in 325 A.D. The First Council of Nicaea is regarded as the first Ecumenical Council of the Christian Church. Invited by Emperor Constantine, about 318 world-wide Bishops (including St. Nicholas), who had risked their lives and were condemned for serving Jesus, traveled across continents and oceans, continued to risk their lives in dangerous travel, to express the basis of the Church today and choose the Books of the Bible.




(* I compiled "Thee" above information and gathered from several sources and paraphrased.)





The triumph of Christianity is actually a very remarkable historical phenomenon. ...





Do not grow weary in doing good

Luke the beloved physician, lived to be in his 90s. He stayed with Paul, the only one, until Paul died.

Timothy, Paul's missionary friend he called a son, was the Bishop of Greece and lived well until his 80s.

Lazarus and Mary and Martha are well documented growing to old, old age on the Mediterranean Shores of France. Not too bad. They had Jesus to dinner in appreciation of His friendship and help.

And a lot of our Scripture exists because we had those willing to relocate to India and Africa.

John lived until history records him vibrant in the 2nd Century.

The Lord is faithful

Generations have called upon the name of Jesus Christ and have been saved.



Fruit of the Spirit...against such as these - there is No Law.

Governments have attempted, in our lifetimes, to restrict access to the Sciptures and the governments have failed; seeing a rebirth of Biblical interest and Churches.

The Word still generates faith, becoming hope, flowering into love.

We are still in the decade proclaimed to be the largest percentage of Christians on earth.

Romans 10:13
Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved



Abba, our Abba,

We want each day to start with Jesus. Saying Jesus God, please go with me. By the Power of the Holy Spirit - Guide, Lead, Encourage, Teach, Help, Prevail, Equip me with my life today. Enable. Protect. Give Wisdom. We want to be with Jesus. Because on His Path is going to find our Hope, Joy, Faith, Peace, Love.

Jesus is able to do so much more than we even imagine. Jesus is God who fed thousands with less than a meal. We want to live and move and have our being.' As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' To all who did receive Jesus, who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God, Who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

We want the Word made flesh to dwelt within us, and we have seen Jesus Glory. Glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. From Jesus' fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. Not from works, for man to boast. Purely from the Love God has for us. And He became our salvation and righteousness.

We cover all of our cares and people we love - with the Highest Name - Jesus. Amen.

Luke 7:1-14 ~ And Jesus went with them



Luke 7:1-14


7 After he had finished all his sayings in
the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum. 


Now a centurion had a servant who was sick and at the point of death, who was highly valued by him. 3 When the centurion heard about Jesus, he sent to him elders of the Jews, asking him to come and heal his servant. 4 And when they came to Jesus, they pleaded with him earnestly, saying, “He is worthy to have you do this for him, 5 for he loves our nation, and he is the one who built us our synagogue.”

6 And Jesus went with them. When he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends, saying to him, “Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof. 7 Therefore I did not presume to come to you. But say the word, and let my servant be healed. 8 For I too am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me: and I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

 9 When Jesus heard these things, he marveled at him, and turning to the crowd that followed him, said, “I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.” 

10 And when those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the servant well.


 
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.”




The Holy Spirit is not new, In existence, and - working - in the Gospels. Genesis 1 tells us The Holy Spirit hovers over the waters of God's new earth. The explanation I like regarding the Holy Spirit is this: God the Father has made plans for us all, before we were born. The Son, Jesus, builds the path for those plans with His very Life and Blood, helping the Will of the Father. The Holy Spirit provides encouragement, guidance, wisdom, protection, and the will to strive and run the race of good works and the faith to persevere.

Jesus is traveling in groups in this Scripture. One more intimate, one larger. Jesus displays a nationalism to Israel. Don't we all tend to act this way. We exist in circles, or communities. we add to them, we regulate them, we have faith in these groups, we admonish these groups, we cheer these groups. We tend to them like a parent It is not reasonable to say Jesus did not have groups, communities, Synagogues, areas like Galilee and even Israel.

 Like we do, to a certain extent. If we ignore our groups - we say we don't care, we aren't interested, we do not create a ripple in their order. By not commenting: "Surely this is peaceful." And absolutely declares - what we have here, by our silence, is no effect. What the circle says - we are. We do not ask for Kindness, Mercy, Moral Value. We simply exist. Saying this is 'better'.

I went to a funeral once, where the person who had died was praised for being loyal to their group - right or wrong. Mercy is good. Being humble because ALL people sin - is worthy to know. But participating in wrong - is wrong. We need to walk the path and plan God has for us - asking Him to guide, lead, encourage, help, raise, forgive - for the Glory of God. Looking to the Word of God creating the Fire of the Holy Spirit to lead us in our soul and mind for words, prayers and action.

If we exist simply - this is good. However examine what simple really means. If we want to leave a Light Shining - we are going to have to engage in the Gospel proclaiming Fight the Good Fight.


Revelation 4:5
And out of the throne proceeded lightning and thunder and voices

Revelation 10:3
Then he cried out in a loud voice like the roar of a lion. And when he cried out, the seven thunders sounded their voices.

Remember the Shining Water from His Throne:

Psalm 29
…2 Ascribe to the LORD the glory due to His name; Worship the LORD in holy array. 3 The voice of the LORD is upon the waters; The God of glory thunders, The LORD is over many waters. 4 The voice of the LORD is powerful, The voice of the LORD is majestic.


What is the Voice of the Holy Spirit telling us, in what we see of the Fruit of the Spirit, about the circles of Jesus.

1 Corinthians 2

“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined,
what God has prepared for those who love him”—

10 these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God.

Jesus' people expect Him to want to help. Jesus' people expect Jesus to take action for good reason. Identical to the way we pray.





The Centurion is explained to ... Jesus - the God of Light and Life and Love - what man the Centurion could be expected to be. They are a little confused to not see Jesus as God. The circle the Centurion would improve - the Synagogue for the Nation.




Jesus is traveling the same path. He believes what the Father speaks will happen. He is willing to go to Nain with a huge group. Jesus is building an event of the dead son rising - the foundation of proof that the Nation might be saved. Jesus knows the circle will widen again - God wants to save the world through Jesus.







Our Abba,

Like Jabez, we pray to increase our opportunities. We pray the Work of our hands is pleasing to You for blessing. We pray the meditation of our heart and the words of our lips are pleasing to You. We pray even in quiet lives - today is meaningful in Your sight. What we do matters. Our prayers are like the centurion - what we love - leads us in paths that our Jesus Christ in us - Light of mankind - will make Your Glory smile and shine forth, making Your Will on earth like that of Heaven.

With renewed Faith, Hope and Love - we know with certainty and peace - our cares, our heart, our Steve, Paul, Edward, ears, our loved ones, the people you give us - are within Your Hand and Heart.

You are Jesus Christ. The Lord. Our prayers for the neighborhoods, communities, schools, Churches, work places are building up to our prayers for the Nation and then to the world. This is not too large for You, And in You we say the Amen, Lord Jesus.

Psalm 91 ~ For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence




Psalm 91 (Hebe deine Augen Auf) composed by Felix Mendelssohn


Psalm 91



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.”



A very Strong Psalm. Psalm 91 is a favored Psalm. Sung at the Holy Festivals for the Jews. Read at Compline for Christians. This Psalm is supposed to be read at bedtime. Because many people over the 3 millenniums have found anxious thoughts at night. The Strength of God's Word as a Mighty Fortress - this is to feel secure.

Today Houston's KSBJ - Bill Ingram told us about praying for a teenage girl for years. She was 15 and as she told her parents she had given her life to Jesus Christ, her parents told her to hush about ''that", they aren't interested in 'such things',  they were getting a divorce. Bill told her to remain strong in the Lord and hold on to Him. Be diligent. This was a call in prayer to the radio station. Bill Ingram put her on his prayer list - his shorter prayer list - for over a decade. 12 years later he was called to the phone as Melinda told him this had been a rough set of years. She had held on to Jesus in good times and the difficult years ahead. Her parents had been saved by Jesus and instead of divorcing went to Christian Counseling and had decided to remain married. Bill Ingram wept when she called in and he told her he had prayed daily for her for 12 years. Jesus hears our prayers and is filled with Works of Compassion.

A reminder, all those prayers, like my Grandmother Anita. praying for her adopted son. Forceps at his birth,  caused a baby boy to stay at an 80 IQ - growing up to be an angry adult who disliked Christians, would in his 7th decade of life suddenly read Rick Warren's book and go on to believe Jesus after debunking Jesus for many, many decades. My uncle went Home to meet Jesus and his dancing mother - my grandmother.

Our Prayers go to a Mighty Fortress - the Goodness of God Himself. Inhaled to be a sweet aroma to the Lord.

Our Prayers matter. Keep Praying. Keep Praying.




Father God,
We will pick up weary thoughts with renewed interest. Revitalized. Renewed.

Jesus - we remember, has solved many, many situations. God saved the People of Goshen, His Blood on the Door, created a Fortress.

David survived lions. So did Samson. Paul survived a snake in Malta. The lame man recovered from the Word of Jesus from Peter. Paul recovered his sight.

And in this truth of millenniums of God's Good Work in Miracles that defy all explanations, we rest our cares, our loved ones, the people You have given us. And Know - You hold and encircle this earth - with mercy - to hear and answer Prayer.

In Jesus, we live, move and have our dwelling. Lord Jesus. The Word of God upholds the Universe and is fully merciful, Loving and willing to hear our prayers and answer in His Plans. Diligence. The Word of God is fulfilled. Amen Jesus Lord.

Luke 2 ~ He took Jesus up in his arms and blessed God






Luke 2


2 In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2 This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 And all went to be registered, each to his own town. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. 6 And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.


8 And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

14
“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.

21 And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

22 And when the time came for their purification according to the Law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord 23 (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, “Every male who first opens the womb shall be called holy to the Lord”) 24 and to offer a sacrifice according to what is said in the Law of the Lord, “a pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.”


25 Now there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ. 27 And he came in the Spirit into the temple, and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the Law, 28 he took him up in his arms and blessed God and said,

29
“Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace,
according to your word;
30 for my eyes have seen your salvation
31 that you have prepared in the presence of all peoples,
32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
and for glory to your people Israel.”

33 And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him. 34 And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is appointed for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is opposed 35 (and a sword will pierce through your own soul also), so that thoughts from many hearts may be revealed.”

36 And there was a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was advanced in years, having lived with her husband seven years from when she was a virgin, 37 and then as a widow until she was eighty-four. She did not depart from the temple, worshiping with fasting and prayer night and day. 38 And coming up at that very hour she began to give thanks to God and to speak of him to all who were waiting for the redemption of Jerusalem.

39 And when they had performed everything according to the Law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to their own town of Nazareth. 40 And the child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom. And the favor of God was upon him.
The Boy Jesus in the Temple

41 Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. 42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up according to custom. 43 And when the feast was ended, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents did not know it, 44 but supposing him to be in the group they went a day's journey, but then they began to search for him among their relatives and acquaintances, 45 and when they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem, searching for him. 46 After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. 47 And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers. 48 And when his parents[g] saw him, they were astonished. And his mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been searching for you in great distress.” 49 And he said to them, “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?” 50 And they did not understand the saying that he spoke to them. 51 And he went down with them and came to Nazareth and was submissive to them. And his mother treasured up all these things in her heart.

52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.





We have been discussing holiness.

If we were to view this from the human perspective, Simeon appears to be the Holy one. And the infant Jesus is being blessed. A son of a mother the Sanhedrin Council would be informed, when the far flung David's lineage are having angels appear.

Simeon is being kind. Jesus said worship in Spirit and Truth. In Truth, Simeon is holy because he recognizes Simeon is the one in the being blessed category. And Simeon acknowledges this.




Abba, our Father,

We thank You for Your Goodness. Jesus is the Light of the World. Jesus is the Light of mankind and this is the priority. Jesus.

Jesus please for my loved ones and the people You have given me. And our prayers circle the globe. Jesus is the Prince of Peace. Your Word says You have the earth and the fullness thereof. We give You Thanks to place our cares with You, Abba, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

1 Peter 1:10-20 ~ “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”


Archeology fully supports the Book of Esther. King Xerxes of Persia. Pop Culture is ~ Wrong. These are archaeology King Xerxes, from his age.

1 Peter 1:10-20



10 Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, 11 inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories. 12 It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.



13 Therefore, preparing your minds for action and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, 15 but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”


17 And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one's deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, 18 knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.

20 He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you.





A surprise. If we are holy, we are to be not purveyors of Righteousness, but rather to serve. A leader is a servant.

We are not supposed to be come so accustomed to the Word of God, we are to be far from being complacent about salvation. When we read the Word of God, we should not be able to skip portions for head nodding.


Who else faced the end times? The Persian Empire were& ethnically Medes, Babylonians, or Parthians. Taking over where Alexander the Great, mentioned by Ezekiel, stopped. Ezekiel said Alexander would bow to the High Priest of God for being God's representative on earth after Alexander had made the island of Tyre joined to the mainland by a vast earth bridge, forever. Upon completion of the earthen bridge, Alexander would complete the journey by bowing to the Jewish High Priest, learning a Jew had told of Alexander's conquest of Tyre 300 years prior.

Also out of the culture, the Jews were in severe trouble who had decided to remain part of the Babylonian Culture instead of returning to Israel. The end of time was a hand. They needed someone who would believe God. Esther was precariously placed.

A 19th-century Christian pilgrim offered her own insight on the effectual significance of the tomb of Esther and the 2,700-year-old Persian Jewish community guarding this tomb : “Beside the tomb of Esther the lowly race she saved have kept loving watch through all the weary ages. More wonderful than any ancient monument are these Jews themselves, lineal descendants, in blood and faith, of the tribes of Israel.”

Some have circumstances of God compelling them.

Ester 4
14 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

15 Then Esther told them to reply to Mordecai, 16 “Go, gather all the Jews to be found in Susa, and hold a fast on my behalf, and do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my young women will also fast as you do. Then I will go to the king, though it is against the law, and if I perish, I perish.” 17 Mordecai then went away and did everything as Esther had ordered him.

Father God,
Forgive me for the times I have breezed over You Word. Thank You for the opportunity to bring the Word of God from my thoughts to these Posts.

Truthfully, there is not a day that goes by where I am not in awe of Your Glories. And I know I talk to You almost constantly. Thank You for the Grace of Jesus, allowing us, who believe Jesus, the access without fail, to come to You as we pray.

We remember You are God. And as Esther became Queen because King Ahasuerus had imbibed. And in the joy of remembering, You sweep all things to You; as Peter reminds us to be sober-minded. We acknowledge, we know God works through all people. The Glory of God does not say He came to save the well-behaved, the Glory of God exists to Love people who are loving. God wants to be available for all - to save the world. We surely know God wants us to be loving.

We require the Mercy of God when King Ahasuerus is remembered in videos, games and movies like "The 300" as being a creature of evil. And is forgotten for being young, human man, seeking to rule wisely. The Rescuer of the Jews. A hurt husband, a loving husband, a husband who would create a tomb for himself and his Esther, we could visit today. A witness to the power of Love in vastly different cultures. Even today where the tombs are found. We require the humility of not knowing what another life holds. The balance available in God's Word.

And we require the diligent searching of Scripture with earnest thoughts and eyes, ready to be renewed and not complacent. We require Jesus, a Savior.

For Your's is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory. Jesus our bridge to His Plans for a Hope and a Future. Jesus, our God, we always need more than He could ever need us. We cover the ones we love and the people You have given us, hoping to Lift Your Countenance in Joy, as You cover us with the Name of Jesus. Help us each day. Amen.
