A True Christian

“Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself from the world.”  

James 1:27

I heard this description: If a child is found by a real Christian, the child will be fed and cared for, and handed back to his parents.

Dear Lord Jesus, help us to follow You, obey You, to hear Your voice, to have a close family relationship with You.  We will shine brighter and brighter, the worldly things will grow dim.

“You are the light of the world” Jesus in Matt 5:14

Watch The Gap

But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and you are tormented. And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.’ ”    Jesus in Luke 16:25-26

Ezekiel 22:30, “So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.” 

“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.”   Jesus in Matthew 25:13

Derek Prince states:

Intercession is the coming between one who needs God and God.  Jesus is the perfect intercessor. It’s not thinking of what you want to pray about, it’s opening yourself to the Lord through the Holy Spirit and letting Him share His burden with you.

When Someone Steals From You

There’s more than one easy answer!

Jesus says: “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” in Matthew 7:12

“Then Peter came to Him and said, ‘Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?’   Jesus said to him, ‘I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.’ ” Matthew 18:21-22

“People do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy himself when he is starving. Yet when he is found, he must restore sevenfold; he may have to give up all the substance of his house.”  Proverbs 6:30-31

Exodus 22:4, “If the theft is certainly found alive in his hand, whether it is an ox or donkey or sheep, he shall restore double.”

Dear Father, I’m Ready

Ready to do Your will; the sun came out amongst the clouds. You give hope because You are faithful, heard a lot about living last night.

Just to rest in You, Lord, and be around Christians. I feel so bright, renewed, hopeful.

Thank You Daddy, You’ve reaffirmed my walk with You since 2013.  Thank You for Your beauty everyday. And thank You for the prophetic dream of an opening door.  Thank You, God, Hallelujia

“Equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.”                                                             Hebrews 13:21

 

Victorious in the Lord

“Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, ‘Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!’  But He turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.’ ”    Matthew 16:22-23

“Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.”  Romans 8:7

“Whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.” 2 Corinthians 4:4

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;”                                                Ephesians 6:12-17

With God All Things Are Possible

“Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

25 When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?”

26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Jesus in Matthew 19:23-26

Moses Was Very Humble

“(Now the man Moses was very humble, more than all men who were on the face of the earth.)”                                                         Numbers 12:3

From “Don’t Give Up,” Derek Prince: Moses was the most powerful person on the earth behind Jesus.  He waited 40 years tending sheep.  We also need to cultivate meekness. The key to promotion in the Kingdom is to abase yourself.

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”                                                            Matthew 11:29 (KJV)

Divide & Conquer

Then one was brought to Him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute; and He healed him, so that the [a]blind and mute man both spoke and saw. 23 And all the multitudes were amazed and said, ‘Could this be the Son of David?’

“24 Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, ‘This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.’

“25 But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: ‘Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. 26 If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? 27 And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. 28 But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you.’                      Matthew 12:22-28

Dear Jesus, let Your enemies be scattered as we stand in unity with You, Father God and Holy Spirit. Amen

First of the Year Cleansing

“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace”                                                                                  Ephesians 1:7

“For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”                           Hebrews 9:13-14

“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.  If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”                                                                                              1 John 1:7-9

“By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.”                                                                                           Hebrews 10:11

“It is finished!”                     John 19:30

I need Jesus.  Some churches do a corporate fast and prayer or Daniel fast at the beginning of each year.

“I Love You, I Love You, I Love You,”

said a woman I met at a friend’s church. This is God talking to you & me.

The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying:
“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.

Jeremiah 31:3

 We love Him because He first loved us.”                1 John 4:19

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

John 3:15
