Thank Him. Worship Him.
Choose this day who you will serve. Serve the Lord with gladness, Enter His Presence with Singing.
Jesus said, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (Mark 9:23)
I pray that we may Worship God through the Presence of His Eternal Spirit and as we enter into His Presence
the entrance of His Word which is the clarity of His Faithfulness and Truth, all of Satan’s domain of darkness
is dispelled, all doubts, all unbelief, all fear GONE in the light of His unfailing love for His creation. May this
be our experience as we live in the light of His Spirit of Truth for the Spirit of Prophecy is the Revelation of
the Son of God, Jesus the Christ, who gave himself for us; bearing the penalty of sin in his flesh and rising again
by the power of the Same Holy Spirit to live forever in freedom from the payment of sin which is death.
Hey, Death! What happened to your big win?
Hey, Death! What happened to your sting?
Sin came into this world, and death’s sting followed. Then sin took aim at the law and gained power over those who follow the law. Thank God, then, for our Lord Jesus, the Anointed, the Liberating King, who brought us victory over the grave.
(1 Corinthians 15:55-57)
It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why?
Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that He exists
and that He cares enough to respond to those who seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)
God’s will turns things around.
God’s will restores and rebuilds.
Unless the Eternal builds the house,
those who labor to raise it will have worked for nothing.
Unless the Eternal stands watch over the city,
those who guard it have wasted their time.
God provides for His own.
Thanks Givings will pour out Laughter will spill out as we Joy in the fullness of His Presence
Sing yourselves into His presence.
Keep Your Lives Simple and Honest
A Message from God-of-the-Angel-Armies:
“In the same way that I decided to punish you when your ancestors made Me angry, and didn’t pull my punches,
at this time I’ve decided to bless Jerusalem and the country of Judah. Don’t be afraid.
And now here’s what I want you to do: Tell the truth, the whole truth, when you speak.
Do the right thing by one another, both personally and in your courts.
Don’t cook up plans to take unfair advantage of others. Don’t do or say what isn’t so.
I hate all that stuff. Keep your lives simple and honest.”
Decree of God.
During the time of Jesus, John the Baptist wanders around Israel in the tradition of the Hebrew prophets
warning the people that they need to correct their attitudes and behaviors, to bring them better in line with what God expects and desires. He declares (warns, actually) that God is coming and will set things right.
During the circumstances of exile, the people don’t fully understand who or what this voice in the wilderness
will be; centuries later, as the early Christian community looks back over the life of Jesus and John,
they recognize the anonymous voice.
A voice says, “Declare!”
But what shall I declare?
All life is like the grass.
All of its grace and beauty fades like the wild flowers in a field.
The grass withers, the flower fades
as the breath of the Eternal One blows away.
People are no different from grass.
The grass withers, the flower fades;
nothing lasts except the word of our God.
It will stand forever.
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Eternal, “plans for peace, not evil, to give you a future and hope—never forget that. (Jeremiah 29:11)
The creation the prophet sees—the new earth—is radically different from the one everyone knows.
At some deep level, everyone recognizes that the everyday world is not the world as God intends it;
things are not the way they are supposed to be. But God will make everything new again.
In that day, the painful past will recede and vanish. Unbridled joy and celebration will eclipse grief and sorrow. Jerusalem, the holy city, will become the center of the world. Long lives will be the norm.
Peace will be secure without exception. God’s blessing will settle over all creation.
Creation itself, with all its complexities, will be made new.
No predator. No prey.
Just peace and harmony throughout. This is a world only God can create when He creates it anew.
Eternal One: Heaven is My throne, and earth is where I rest My feet.
So what kind of structure would you build Me?
What man-made space could provide Me a resting place?
Everything is the product of My hand—My being and My doing—
that’s how all you see came to be; I made it all.
Do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.
Do not set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you. Do not take for granted the things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless. Do not let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past nor for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live all of the days of your life. Do not give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying. It is a fragile thread that binds us to each other.
Do not be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave. Do not shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find. The quickest way to receive love is to give love. The fastest way to lose love is too hold it too tightly. In addition, the best way to keep love is to give it wings
Do not dismiss your dreams. To be without dreams is to be without hope. To be without hope is to be without purpose. Do not run through life so fast that you forget not only where you have been, but also where you are going.
Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.
