No One is Lost

“Now the Angel of the Lord found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, by the spring on the way to Shur.” The Angel and Hagar, Genesis 16:7 (NKJV)

“Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, You-Are-the-God-Who-Sees; for she said, “Have I also here seen Him who sees me?” Genesis 16:13

“For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.  In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.” 2 Chronicles 16:9

“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing” Jesus in Luke 15:4-5 (NKJV)

Great Is Its Fall

Jesus in Matthew 7:24-27:

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

Matthew 6:23:

“But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness.  If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

Dear Lord Jesus, we cling to You, the only truth.  Help us to grow toward You and live our lives with great faith (not great darkness)!

The Unjust Steward

“And so I say to you make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home.” Luke 16:9

This literally happened where a woman lost her job/apartment, but immediately moved in with a friend whom she’d helped previously.

Jesus in Luke 16: “He also said to His disciples:

‘There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and an accusation was brought to him that this man was wasting his goods.”

“So he called him and said to him, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your stewardship, for you can no longer be steward.” Luke 16:1-2

“Then the steward said within himself, ‘What shall I do? … I cannot dig; I am ashamed to beg. I have resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.'” Luke 16:3-4

“Then he said to another, ‘And how much do you owe?’ So he said, ‘one hundred measures of wheat.’ And he said to him, ‘Take your bill and write eighty.’ So the master commended the unjust steward because he had dealt shrewdly. For the sons of this world are more shrewd than the sons of Light.” Luke 16:7-8

“And so I say to you make friends for yourselves by unrighteous mammon, that when you fail, they may receive you into an everlasting home.” Luke 16:9

 

Learned So Much

“Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I obey your word.” Psalm 119:67 (KJV)

A friend said he was glad he had been sick because he learned so much about healthy eating and eating according to one’s bloodtype. It’s great to feel some power and sense of achievement in gaining strength, overcoming an illness. Also, when God helps us. And there’s that proverbial silver lining you can find in any cloud.

Oswald Chambers, “My Utmost” August 20th: “It’s the sick person who really knows what health is.”

Be Angry

…and do not sin”

Paul says in Ephesians 4:26

“Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not?” Paul again in 2 Corinthians 11:29 (NKJV)

“Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.” Jesus in John 7:24

“Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.

“And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.” Jesus in Matt 21:12-13

“Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, but such as keep the law contend with them.” Proverbs 28:4

This is for my friend, Keri, who had fingers pointed at her because she was indignant at wrong doing.  Have you too been blamed from unbelievers who tried to provoke you?

Jesus Is God

“I and My Father are one.” John 10:3, says Jesus.

During a Bible study last year, I had to state: “Jesus is God,” because they were comparing Jesus to other prophets in the Bible.  You know when it insults God, you have to say something.

Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.  And 1/3 of the Triune God.

Song in my heart: “My God, just thinking about You Jesus, blows my mind.”

(set to Lionel Richie’s “My Love)

Thanks for all the love and page referrals, y’all! 

God is the God of:

  • Order – 1 Corinthians 14:40
  • Peace – Isaiah 9:6; John 14:27
  • Truth – John 14:6
  • Life – Genesis 2:7
  • Knowledge & Understanding – Proverbs 14:6
  • Light – 1 John 1:5
  • Wisdom – Proverbs 4:7

A friend’s church where the Worship singing seemed authentic, but not the forced drama and 30 year old testimonies.  Thankfully, some of the children were unaffected by the drama of the Pastor screaming into the mic, woman shaking and crying with emotionalism.

“Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.” 2 Peter 3:3

“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” Jesus in John 16:13 (NKJV)

Justice Day

“For I, the LORD, love justice. I hate robbery and wrongdoing. I will faithfully reward my people for their suffering and make an everlasting covenant with them.” Isaiah 61:8 (NLT)

So many need justice. A stolen phone was returned. Friends’ Unemployment, Disability cases. Suffering emotional and physical abuse. False accusations from so-called Christian leaders.

“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” Jesus says in Matt 5:6 (KJV)

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices–mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law–justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.” Matthew 23:23 (NLT)

“Now You Know What To Pray For”

Heard this in my spirit after visiting some relatives.  They will be saved, in Jesus’ name.

“They replied, ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.’” Acts 16:31 (NIV)

Sharing this word as Prophecy is not for private use (2 Peter 1:20). Time is never wasted when God is in the mix. Isn’t it good to know that He understands and has a plan?
