A Faithful Creator

31 May

May 31, 2014

Because we are of the flesh is why we are separated unto God. When we die and are no longer of the flesh, then we will See God face to Face.

Today i was thinking about a story where the birds and whales and all the animals got together and sent a Message to the people and helped save the people. Just like the days of Noah, when Raven and Dove helped save the ark. It’s pretty amazing. Ravens are lookouts for us. If we see Ravens flying around us, they may be trying to tell us something. And Doves are our gentle friends from when people used to live in peace with all the birds and animals.

The other day i was reading a scripture in which it was said that women could not be teachers and that they also had to wear head coverings. That just doesn’t sound right to me. Many of our best teachers are females and it would be a terrible shame to lose half of our resources through ignorance. There are many female prophets and Scripture tells us, Do not quench the Spirit. I thought about the head covering thing, and i don’t know where they got that from, but it doesn’t appear that they got it from Scripture, as far as i can tell. So, i thought, how can i tell what is God’s teaching on headcoverings? So i thought about Adam and Eve. God did not tell Adam to put a sack on his head, neither did He tell Eve. They didn’t even have fig leaves on. So that tells me what God thinks about headcoverings. Scripture also tells us that we don’t put our light under a bushel, we put it out where everyone can see it. I contend that women would have had more influence as teachers and prophets if they weren’t so busy in the kitchen and the nursery, and had not been held back and oppressed as much as they have been.

When i first became a Christian one of the ideas i didn’t like very much was how they called the Church the Bride. I kind of balked at first, but now i realize it helped me to humble myself before God. It’s not easy to humble myself sometimes. I begin to realize, the flesh is all the opposite of what the spirit wants. The flesh wants to be strong and tough, the spirit wants to be humble. The flesh says I know what’s best, the Spirit says, Rely on God.
It seems in all ways, the flesh is opposite to the Spirit. Now i understand. The Church is the Bride, but the Church is made up of both men and women.

Hebrews Chapter 12

WHEREFORE seeing we also are compassed about with so great a
cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which
doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is
set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the
joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame,
and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against
himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
4 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as
unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord,
nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son
whom he receiveth.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for
what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then
are ye bastards, and not sons.
9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us,
and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in
subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own
pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his
holiness.
11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but
grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of
righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble
knees;
13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be
turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man
shall see the Lord:
15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any
root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be
defiled;
16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for
one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited
the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance,
though he sought it carefully with tears.
18 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and
that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,
19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice
they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them
any more:
20 (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so
much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust
through with a dart:
21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear
and quake:)
22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living
God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of
angels,
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are
written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of
just men made perfect,
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood
of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not
who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we
escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised,
saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those
things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things
which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us
have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence
and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.

1 Peter Chapter 4

FORASMUCH then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm
yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in
the flesh hath ceased from sin;
2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the
lusts of men, but to the will of God.
3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the
will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess
of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same
excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and
the dead.
6 For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are
dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but
live according to God in the spirit.
7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and
watch unto prayer.
8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for
charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
9 Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same
one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man
minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in
all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise
and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to
try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings;
that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with
exceeding joy.
14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the
spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil
spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an
evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.
16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but
let him glorify God on this behalf.
17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of
God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that
obey not the gospel of God?
18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly
and the sinner appear?
19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God
commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a
faithful Creator.

The Hands of the Living God

30 May

May 30, 2014      I Will Have Mercy 

Mark Chapter 5

24 And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and
thronged him.
25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent
all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and
touched his garment.
28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she
felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone
out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my
clothes?
31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude
thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in
her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole;
go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

I prayed to God last year and said i want to go to Heaven and all my brothers too. Then God said Here you are. And He gave us the Keys to Heaven.

Jesus wants everyone to learn our lessons and pass this course. That is why He came to us and gave us all the answers.

Here we can read about when Jesus read the minds of the scribes, in verses 3 and 4

Matthew Chapter 9

AND he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own
city.
2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on
a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy;
Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.
3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This
man blasphemeth.
4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in
your hearts?
5 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say,
Arise, and walk?
6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to
forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy
bed, and go unto thine house.
7 And he arose, and departed to his house.
8 But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God,
which had given such power unto men.
9 ¶ And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named
Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him,
Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.
10 ¶ And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold,
many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his
disciples.
11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why
eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?
12 But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole
need not a physician, but they that are sick.
13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not
sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to
repentance.

Well, i’m trying to be good, and i’m not that great at it. It’s not always easy. Then i realized, after God explained to me about turning the other cheek, that i broke that commandment. I told God i’m very sorry, and i am trying to figure things out and do the best that i can. But i am small and weak and my ignorance is very great. God told me that on Earth, you generally can’t be cited for trespassing, unless there are signs clearly posted. And that is the same as it is in Heaven. HOwever, once we know the rules, we are bound to keep them, or face the consequences of not following the rules. The rules have been posted, and everyone is responsible for reading them and understanding them. Thank you very much. There are rewards for following the rules and there are consequences for disobedience.

I thought about what God said , Vengeance is mine. And i realized, i am small and weak, i can’t do much to anyone in terms of vengeance. But my Father is very powerful, and he can wreak a lot of vengeance. So i understand that the worst thing i can do to my enemies is be kind to them. I pray for forgiveness for all my enemies.

Hebrews Chapter 10

FOR the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the
very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they
offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the
worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of
sins.
3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins
every year.
4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should
take away sins.
5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and
offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of
me,) to do thy will, O God.
8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and
offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein;
which are offered by the law;
9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the
first, that he may establish the second.
10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the
body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering
oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever,
sat down on the right hand of God;
13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are
sanctified.
15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he
had said before,
16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days,
saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds
will I write them;
17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for
sin.
19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by
the blood of Jesus,
20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us,
through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
21 And having an high priest over the house of God;
22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith,
having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies
washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for
he is faithful that promised;)
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good
works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner
of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye
see the day approaching.
26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge
of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery
indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or
three witnesses:
29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought
worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath
counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an
unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I
will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his
people.
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were
illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
33 Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and
afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that
were so used.
34 For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the
spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven
a better and an enduring substance.
35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great
recompence of reward.
36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of
God, ye might receive the promise.
37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will
not tarry.
38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my
soul shall have no pleasure in him.
39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them
that believe to the saving of the soul.

Romans Chapter 10

BRETHREN, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that
they might be saved.
2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not
according to knowledge.
3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to
establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves
unto the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that
believeth.
5 For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That
the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say
not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring
Christ down from above:)
7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ
again from the dead.)
8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in
thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt
believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou
shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the
mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be
ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the
same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be
saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed?
and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and
how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written,
How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace,
and bring glad tidings of good things!
16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord,
who hath believed our report?
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into
all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.
19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke
you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I
will anger you.
20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought
me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.
21 But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my
hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.

Get Into Heaven Free Card . Love, Jesus

29 May

May 29, 2014 Walmart for President ?

I have been thinking about the turning the other cheek commandment, and i remember what Earth Mother told me back in 2003, when She first came unto me. She told me that we don’t do anything out of orneryness. We don’t even think ornery thoughts. I understand better now that we don’t do anything out of meanness to our brothers. Neither do we punch them with a fist, nor do we punch them with a bad word, nor do we even punch them with evil thoughts. We don’t do anything mean , either in thought, word, or action. We do not punch our brothers in so-called self-defense either, which is just another word for retaliation. No, we are to love our brothers and be kind to them. This is what Jesus commanded us to do.

Now i know many people have been praying for me. And i say Thank you very much and trust in God as i do that i am in very good hands. I would like to ask that everyone pray for all their brothers – the saved and the unsaved, so that they might become saved as well. Let us not forget to pray for those that need it the most. Thank you very much. And if you so desire, pray every day to be closer to God. Pray for peace.

Myself, i do love nature and hiking and boating and scenery. However, i have become increasingly fascinated by the Kingdom of Heaven and engrossed in wonder so much about it, that the natural world pales in comparison. My new Bible, which i actually downloaded last year, the Cambridge edition, is much more clear to me and easier to understand. Now the new international version is supposed to make the Bible easier to understand. But it does not. It makes it where i can’t understand it at all. Now i have a Bible i can understand. Thank You God. I have received many, many blessings.

Last night, i suddenly thought, why is it so hard for rich men to get into Heaven? Almost instantly, i realized it is because they love money more than they love God. We are commanded to love God with all our hearts and all our strength. They love the riches of this Earth more than the riches of Heaven. Why? Because of the flesh, i imagine. And also, they may have been deceived through bad teachings to believe that there is no Kingdom of Heaven and they just don’t know any better. However, i contend that even a rich man can love God as much as a poor man. Whether rich or poor, we will all be judged by what is in our hearts. So it’s better to be concerned with what is in our hearts, than with what is in our pocketbooks.

I was thinking about Adam and Eve, and how they fell from grace. I read in Genesis how Satan deceived the woman, and i wondered why God was angry with Eve? Why wouldn’t God be angry with Satan instead? Satan is the one who tricked them. Satan caused all these problems. Then i realized, because Eve was disobedient. Adam was disobedient. Satan gave them the temptation, but it was Adam who disobeyed. And Eve disobeyed too. I read Genesis Chapter 3 again, and i realized i was in error – it does not say anywhere in Genesis Chapter 3 that God was angry with anyone. It does say that because the serpent deceived God’s children, and because God’s children were disobedient to what God commanded them, that the serpent became cursed, the ground became cursed because of Adam, and Adam and Eve had their sorrows greatly multiplied.

Genesis Chapter 3

NOW the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which
the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath
God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of
the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God
hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes
shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that
it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise,
she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her
husband with her; and he did eat.
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they
were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made
themselves aprons.
8 And they heard the voice of the L ORD God walking in the garden in
the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the
presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where
art thou?
10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid,
because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten
of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
12 And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me,
she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou
hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did
eat.
14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done
this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the
field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days
of thy life:
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between
thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise
his heel.
16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and
thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy
desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the
voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded
thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy
sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt
eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto
the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto
dust shalt thou return.
20 And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the
mother of all living.

It doesn’t say that God was angry, but we can see that there is a price to be paid for disobedience. Satan deceived God’s children and told them to eat what they should not eat, and gave them bad knowledge. And , after Satan had corrupted God’s world, now all of God’s children were in peril. God had to send His own Son, Jesus, in order to save the world unto everlasting life. Now why were Adam and Eve disobedient? Was it because of the flesh?

1 Corinthians Chapter 15

MOREOVER, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I
preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye
stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached
unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how
that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day
according to the scriptures:
5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of
whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen
asleep.
7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due
time.
9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an
apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was
bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly
than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye
believed.
12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say
some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?
13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen:
14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your
faith is also vain.
15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have
testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so
be that the dead rise not.
16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:
17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your
sins.
18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.
19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most
miserable.
20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits
of them that slept.
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection
of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward
they that are Christ’s at his coming.
24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the
kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all
rule and all authority and power.
25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith, all
things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did
put all things under him.
28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son
also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that
God may be all in all.
29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the
dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?
30 And why stand we in jeopardy every hour?
31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I
die daily.
32 If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus,
what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for
to morrow we die.
33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.
34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the
knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
35 But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with
what body do they come?
36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall
be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed
his own body.
39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of
men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.
40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the
glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and
another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in
glory.
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it
is raised in incorruption:
43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in
weakness; it is raised in power:
44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a
natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul;
the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is
natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord
from heaven.
48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the
heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear
the image of the heavenly.
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the
kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall
all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the
trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and
we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal
must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this
mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass
the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our
Lord Jesus Christ.
58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable,
always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know
that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Love Your Neighbor As Yourself

29 May

May 28, 2014

Today i asked God, Why is it so hard to be nice? It seems like it should be easy. Just be nice. But it’s not so easy all the time. God told me the reason it is difficult is because of the flesh. The flesh is in conflict with the Spirit, as i read earlier today. God made me understand that it doesn’t matter who hit first, or who hit second, or third. Hitting is wrong, violence is wrong. In God’s eyes, so and so hit first is not an excuse to hit a brother. And , for hitting, one could be said to be guilty of not loving his brother as himself, of begetting violence, disobedience, and there could be a case made for not keeping one’s convenant with the Lord. So i long to do a thorough examination to try and find all God’s commandments, so that i may follow as many as i can. Not just so that i will know them, but so that i can follow them, and keep them. It’s not that easy, but with God’s help, i know everything is going to be OK.

Above All, Be Kind

28 May

May 28, 2014 Above All, Be Kind

Jonah Chapter 4

10 Then said the LORD, Thou hast had pity on the gourd, for the
which thou hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which came up
in a night, and perished in a night:
11 And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more
than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their
right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?

Well last year i felt that i had found a personal message to me, even in the Bible in Matthew 24. I was very amazed! Because i want to be Jesus’ faithful servant. And the Scriptures said, Who is the faithful servant to give Jesus’ flock some food, and then the scriptures go on to say that if the servant does not do right, and eats and drinks with the drunkards, Jesus will take His Sword and cut his faithful servant to pieces! I was like , what? Because i am His faithful servant, why would Jesus want to cut me to pieces with His sword? And i was having a sad day that day, and i cried about that. And i didn’t really understand it.

Now, i have a better translation, and now i understand exactly what Jesus is saying :

Matthew Chapter 24

42 ¶ Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth
come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in
what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and
would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the
Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made
ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find
so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his
goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth
his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink
with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not
for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the
hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Jesus isn’t saying He’s going to cut me to pieces with His Sword, if i strike my fellow servants and eat and drink with the drunkards. It says He is going to cut me “asunder”. That means “cut me loose” or “let me go” , just as i wrote about a couple days ago. In other words, if i quit doing His Will, He is going to let me go from His Team, and then i would go with the hypocrites, because i did not practice what i preached. I did not learn my lessons and keep His commandments. So this is why it is very important that i learn my Lessons. The same as everyone else. I also realize something new, and that is that God doesn’t love me more than anyone else. God loves us all exactly the same. This helps to make sense to me, in a few ways. For example, i always had trouble understanding the “turn the other cheek” commandment. Now i See. To me, it means, No fighting. If someone attacks me, then my Mother is going to be unhappy with their behaviour and if i have done nothing wrong, then i am blameless. However, if someone attacks me, my Mother will be displeased with them, and if i hit them back, She will then be displeased with me as well. Because i struck Her child, whom She loves just as much as me. Because now, i also did something wrong. Whereas, if i don’t strike back, i am blameless.

It seemed kind of funny, when i first thought about it. Because i thought surely God loves me more, because i am trying to keep His Commandments, than, say for example, someone who is practicing devil worship. But then i realize, God loves us all the same. I was also unsaved myself, at one time. About a year ago. That is why it is so important to be kind, especially to those who are mean to me by praying for them. Now when i was growing up, we were taught to fight amongst each other. That is, if one child hit another child, the parents would say, Hit them back! And the parents would teach their children to fight. Now, however, my Heavenly Mother does not teach me to fight. She is teaching me that is not the appropriate response, to hit back. Call the police, run away, whatever, but don’t hit your brothers.

I also understand better what Jesus is talking about, in Matthew verse 45 , “a faithful and wise servant” .
Just as Jesus is faithful and true, so are we to be faithful and true to Jesus. And faithful to keep his commandments.
Notice He also said “wise servant”. Now, going back to the wise man and foolish man in Matthew Chapter 7, the wise man is the man who
heard the sayings of Jesus, and followed them. So, this faithful servant in Matthew 45 is following the teachings of Jesus.
Now, if this servant stops being faithful,and stops being wise, and stops following Jesus commandments, he will be cut asunder. Let go. Why? Because the servant was no longer faithful. He let his oil run out, as did the five foolish virgins. The five foolish virgins let their oil run out – they also quit being faithful. They quit following Jesus’ commandments. So let us all be faithful and true to Jesus. Let’s not be cut asunder. It’s worse than being cut to pieces.

I was thinking to myself that i do not really wish for anything. I have been very blessed, and i have more than enough. I don’t really need anything. I have everything i need, pretty much. But then, i thought, i do wish i had more peace. That would be nice. And, there are a few things i do want. Such as, i want to go to Heaven. I want to give thanks to God. I want to give God glory. I want to carry out God’s Will and i want to follow God’s commandments. And then i realized, i do want a lot of stuff. I thought i didn’t but it seems that i do. I thought about Heaven, and what it must be like. Not just a peaceful evening, or just a peaceful Sunday afternoon, or a peaceful spot for a picnic, but complete peace, every single day, all the time, for Eternity. Wow. What must that be like. I wondered if there is any work that we have to do in Heaven. And i thought, if there is, it will be peaceful work. Not like any work we have to do on Earth. That sounds very wonderful- eternal peace.

Knowledge = power. Wisdom = Strength

1 John Chapter 3

BEHOLD, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us,
that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world
knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear
what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall
be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as
he is pure.
4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the
transgression of the law.
5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in
him is no sin.
6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not
seen him, neither known him.
7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness
is righteous, even as he is righteous.
8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the
beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he
might destroy the works of the devil.
9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed
remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the
devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he
that loveth not his brother.
11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we
should love one another.
12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother.
And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and
his brother’s righteous.
13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we
love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no
murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life
for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
17 But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have
need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how
dwelleth the love of God in him?
18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in
deed and in truth.
19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our
hearts before him.
20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and
knoweth all things.
21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence
toward God.
22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his
commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.
23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the
name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us
commandment.
24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he
in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit
which he hath given us.

1 Thessalonians Chapter 5

BUT of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I
write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh
as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction
cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they
shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake
you as a thief.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are
not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be
sober.
7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are
drunken in the night.
8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate
of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by
our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live
together with him.
11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another,
even as also ye do.
12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among
you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;
13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake.
And be at peace among yourselves.
14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort
the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.
15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow
that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
16 Rejoice evermore.
17 Pray without ceasing.
18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ
Jesus concerning you.
19 Quench not the Spirit.
20 Despise not prophesyings.
21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God
your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the
coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
25 Brethren, pray for us.
26 Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.
27 I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy
brethren.
28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

The first epistle unto the Thessalonians was written from Athens.

Galatians Chapter 5

STAND fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us
free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall
profit you nothing.
3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a
debtor to do the whole law.
4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are
justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by
faith.
6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor
uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the
truth?
8 This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none
otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment,
whosoever he be.
11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer
persecution? then is the offence of the cross ceased.
12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.
13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not
liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt
love thy neighbour as thyself.
15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not
consumed one of another.
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust
of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the
flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do
the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these;
Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife,
seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the
which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they
which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the
affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another,
envying one another.

First We Must Learn Our Lessons

28 May

May 27, 2014 First We Must Learn Our Lessons

Today i learned something new. Looking at cars for sale, and nice motorhomes, and wanting them, or wishing to have a million dollars; that is called coveting. I never knew that. Generally wishing to have anything i don’t really need.

Yesterday, i asked God to help save me from myself. Today, God guided me to read in Matthew

Matthew Chapter 1

21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name
JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

I have a question: How will Jesus save His people from their sins?

I believe Jesus will save His people in three ways; His teachings, His example, and His sacrifice.
That is why Jesus gave us His teachings. That we might live in the Kingdom of Heaven with everlasting life.
And that is why we need to study the teachings He gave us.
If we want to go to Heaven, we must first learn our Lessons.

Matthew Chapters 5-7 are the teachings of Jesus to the multitudes.

Matthew Chapter 5

AND seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when
he was set, his disciples came unto him:
2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for
they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children
of God.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for
theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and
shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in
heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
13 ¶ Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour,
wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to
be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be
hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a
candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good
works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
17 ¶ Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I
am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or
one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least
commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least
in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them,
the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed
the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case
enter into the kingdom of heaven.
21 ¶ Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt
not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother
without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever
shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but
whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest
that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be
reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way
with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and
the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence,
till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.
27 ¶ Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt
not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust
after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29 And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from
thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should
perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee:
for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish,
and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
31 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give
her a writing of divorcement:
32 But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife,
saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery:
and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
33 ¶ Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time,
Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine
oaths:
34 But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is
God’s throne:
35 Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it
is the city of the great King.
36 Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make
one hair white or black.
37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for
whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
38 ¶ Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a
tooth for a tooth:
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall
smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat,
let him have thy cloke also.
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of
thee turn not thou away.
43 ¶ Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy
neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you,
do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully
use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for
he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth
rain on the just and on the unjust.
46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not
even the publicans the same?
47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than
others? do not even the publicans so?
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is
perfect.

Matthew Chapter 7

21 ¶ Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the
kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is
in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not
prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in
thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from
me, ye that work iniquity.
24 ¶ Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth
them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a
rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew,
and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a
rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them
not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon
the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew,
and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the
people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Today i was wondering about swearing and oath making and right away i found Jesus’ teachings in Matthew, the first book of the New Testament.
Now i have some study material. I thought about swearing, and it’s kind of hard for me to understand. I do understand that we are not to swear.

There is no need to swear to anything. Just tell the truth. And i realized if a person swears they are telling the truth, and they use God as their witness, if they don’t tell the truth, either intentionally or unknowingly err, they have just made themselves a liar. And, they called God a liar.
So let us not swear to anything. Let us just tell the truth. Besides the fact that Jesus tells us not to swear. So lets not do what Jesus tells us not to do. Whether we understand exactly why, or not. Trust and obey.

I have been learning my prayers and i began to understand that God is also saving us by teaching us how to pray.

I began to realize that being a Christian is not easy. I asked God, What if i’m too weak to make it? And God said to me You’re not too weak.
God does not make the requirements too high for anyone. And i understood, God is a discerner of thoughts and intentions. And so that is why it is important that we want to be good, and that we are trying as hard as we can to be good. We will never be perfect, but we try to be. And God knows what is in our hearts and minds.

And God made me understand that fear is not our motivation. Our motivation is living in Heaven and having everlasting life. What a wonder that must be!

Acts of the Apostles Chapter 1

THE former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus
began both to do and teach,
2 Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the
Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he
had chosen:
3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many
infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the
things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that
they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of
the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with
the Holy Ghost not many days hence.
6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him,
saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to
Israel?
7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the
seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon
you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all
Judæa, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was
taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up,
behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into
heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven,
shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

Making An Oath to God is Not to Be Taken Lightly

May 26, 2014      My Daily Prayers      Please Help Save Me From Myself      It’s Not Too Late. Yet.   

Pray ye fervently and daily, that ye break not your covenant with the Lord. For therein lies death.

Pray ye also fervently and daily that ye don’t tell lies and become a liar. For such is the same: unto death do us part.

Our Father which art in
heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For
thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Dear God Thank you for this day and everything i have been given. I have been very blessed indeed.
I want to humble myself every day and give You thanks for forgiving my sins.

And God i pray fervently, and daily, that Satan be removed from all parts of me.
That is my body, my thoughts, and my feelings. And even my general vicinity.

And God i pray fervently, and daily, that i don’t tell lies and become a liar.
For if i do, i will surely die.

And God i pray fervently, and daily, that i never break my Covenant with You, God.
Make me remember it is even more important than my wedding vows.

And God, i pray fervently, and daily, that i never get separated from You, God.
For if i do, i will surely die.

And God i pray that i receive your Guidance every day, that i may be wise in all my ways.
And True to You, IN everything that i think, feel, and do.

I love you very much God! Thank You so much for everything!

In Jesus’ Name we pray. Amen.
