Dedication And Re-dedication! Are You In?

The invitation has been sent. Have you received yours, my friends? Here it is!

Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Don’t tell me you don’t have any burdens for that would be a lie! Yes, and that my friend is a burden! Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. There is need to dedicate your life to Jesus Christ this moment.

truth gets enemies

Are you in the faith? There is a need for the rededication of our lives to the Lord. 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified. But I trust that you will know that we are not disqualified.   Now I pray to God that you do no evil, not that we should appear approved, but that you should do what is honorable, though we may seem disqualified. For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth. 

Matthew 28:16 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Caution Against Error!

advocate1Luke 11:33 “No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light. 34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy, your body also is full of darkness. 35 See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. 36 Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you.”

 

2 Peter 1: 5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

2 Peter 3:17 Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position.18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

1 Corinthians 10:21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

A Humble And Contrite Heart The Lord Will Not Reject!

No matter how deep your sins may be, no matter how far gone you have thread away from righteousness and peace, the Lord our God is full of mercy and compassion, He will forgive and restore you!

You only need to humble yourself under His mighty arm, confess and seek His face for mercy. Call on the Lord today with all your heart!

Manasseh King of Judah was one bad King. He was so wicked in his ways that he sacrificed his children to strange gods and polluted the house of the Most High God with idols. Yet, the Lord had mercy on him when he repented of his sins and called on the name of the Lord.

The Lord will hear you friends when you call on Him  with a humble and contrite heart. Seek God’s face for mercy today. He will hear you!

2 Chronicles ​33:10 And the LORD spake to Manasseh, and to his people: but they would not hearken. 11 Wherefore the LORD brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, which took Manasseh among the thorns, and bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon. 12 And when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers, 13 And prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD he was God.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Chosen For A Purpose! You Also!

In 1 Chronicles 19:1-20, we see the result of misconceptions – thinking the worst of people and thier intentions, lack of good judgement, ill gotten advice, lack of wisdom and an evil heart.

 

A delegate was sent by King David, with condolences to Hanun, King of the Ammonites who has just ascended the throne after his Father’s death.

Understandably, Hanun was in mourning, the whole city was hurting, and here comes a delegate, with spices, ointment, fruits and all sort from a formidable alliance.

I would have been glad to see them. Welcome them with open arms, threat them nice and respectfully, and send them back to my late Father’s friend with some figs, spices, freshly baked bread, water in their jar, oil and whatever people gift each other those days.

There was no reason, and there is no readon at all, to be mean to anyone extending an arm of fellowship. There is no reason to humiliate and ridicule someone bearing good tidings, a helping hand. Absolutely no justfication to be wicked to any showing kindness to you!!

How could the Ammonite think hiring chariots and fighters for an unjustifiable war will bring them victory? That is the question we all should ask ourselves as Christian whenever we have issues with one another.

Your anger, hatred, envy, unkindness, opposition, oppression, disrespect, insubordination and all kinds of ill feeling we have towards one another, is it really justified?

We have gone to war with those we should be friends with because of the wickedness of our hearts. We have stepped out of bounds of acceptable behaviour for a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation.

You and I often hire Balaam to curse those whom the Lord has blessed! Yes, we did not know the Lord is with His chosen people. They have just left slavery, multitudes not in royal apparel, yet clothed in the radiant glory of the Most High God.

People weary and burdened with issues, seeking a place of rest, hoping in the kindness, grace and unconditional love of the Father have walked into the Sanctuary, and we raised a war cry against them. We don’t want this sort of people in our midst! Thier presence seems threatening! We cook up allegations, magnify thier slightest mistakes – by our faulty perception. Why so! Why so friends?

The Lord will fight for His people, God always rought the chariots of the wicked. He fought for David against the Ammonites, Goliath, and all his enemies. God will fight for His inheritance.

Jehovah will fight for every soul Christ died for on Calvary’s Tree that we present day “Christians” have hired Arameans against. Those we have used the prevailing issues of thier lives to taunt and reproached. The lost and weary that came to the cross genuinely that we crushed, discouraged and shunted thier growth! The ones we drove out, not because they are selling and buying in the Sanctuary, but because thier little light is revealing our own darkness! Oh yes!! The Lord sees!

Friends, let us all examine ourselves if we are still in the faith. Is yoùr heart aligned with the Word – the bread we eat daily. We profess Christ Jesus with our lips, what about our hearts? Hearts!!!!

Oh Lord God of heaven thank you for your love and faithfulness. Thank you for your Word that is able to reveal the hidden things of our hearts.

Oh Lord God Most Holy, Most High, be merciful unto us your Children. Forgive us Jesus and help us to love you through others. Purge our hearts of every evil, expose our errors and help us to correct our wrong. Holy Spirit have your way in our heart, rekindle a right spirit within us. Set our soul on fire for the work of our savior! Help us Father as we pray in Christ Jesus mighty name. Amen

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

Turn Away From Evil!

The blood of Jesus cleanses from all unrighteousness, making you and I sinless and joint heirs with Christ Jesus. We are brand new, born again and complete in Him, nothing missing. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Friends, the fact still remains that some will taste that the Lord is good and will still go after the desires of their flesh. I want you to know that it is a terrible thing to neglect such a great gift given by the blood of Jesus Christ – The Salvation of your soul and still rebel against that which is of His great pleasure. Disaster will fall upon the rebellious -everyone seeking after his own ways and not the Lord’s.

Jeremiah 5:2 Though they say, ‘As the Lord lives,’ Surely they swear falsely.”O Lord, are not Your eyes on the truth? You have stricken them, but they have not grieved; You have consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction. They have made their faces harder than rock; they have refused to return. Therefore I said, “Surely these are poor. They are foolish; for they do not know the way of the Lord, the judgment of their God. I will go to the great men and speak to them, For they have known the way of the Lord, The judgment of their God.” But these have altogether broken the yoke and burst the bonds.

repentJeremiah 8: Why has this people slidden back, Jerusalem, in a perpetual backsliding? They hold fast to deceit, they refuse to return.I listened and heard, but they do not speak aright. No man repented of his wickedness, saying, ‘What have I done?’  Everyone turned to his own course, as the horse rushes into the battle. 7 “Even the stork in the heavens knows her appointed times; and the turtledove, the swift, and the swallow observe the time of their coming. But My people do not know the judgment of the Lord“How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’? Look, the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood. The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken. Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord; So what wisdom do they have? 10 Therefore I will give their wives to others, and their fields to those who will inherit them; because from the least even to the greatest everyone is given to covetousness; From the prophet even to the priest, everyone deals falsely. 11 For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, saying, ‘Peace, peace!’ When there is no peace.

Hosea 11:7 My people are bent on backsliding from Me. Though they call to the Most High, None at all exalt Him. God in His infinite mercy is not willing that any should perish but to come to everlasting life. Repent therefore of your many sins and be cleansed. Examine your ways and make necessary correction today. Our Lord is a merciful God, He will show mercy!Hosea 14:4“I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely, For My anger has turned away from him.

2 Corinthians 7:10 Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 11 See what this godly sorrow has produced in you: what earnestness, what eagerness to clear yourselves, what indignation, what alarm, what longing, what concern, what readiness to see justice done.

Most High God we thank you for your faithfulness. Thank you Jesus Christ for the ultimate sacrifice on Calvary’s tree. That sacrifice is what enables us to come to the throne of grace to receive mercy even right now. For everyone of us that have lightly esteemed what you wrought on our behalf and for us, we ask for mercy Lord, forgive us, our unbelief, doubt, disobedience, rebellion, and the desire to chart our own course away from you. We repent today Lord Jesus and ask thy will be done in our lives. In every way that we have hindered your move in the midst of your chosen one, Lord forgive us. We yield ourselves to your will, have your way Holy Spirit, move us to will and to act in order to fulfill your good pleasure in US. Thank you Lord for loving us even in our unfaithfulness. We bless your Holy Name oh Lord, be  magnified, for in Jesus Christ name we pray. Amen!

Shalom! Shalom!
