Hebrews 2:14-15, “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”

Thank You Jesus!

“And they sang a new song, saying:

“You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,”

Revelation 5:9

What’s Your Definition of Love?

…2 Young men jokingly confronted me on a sidewalk one night

  • God keeps no record of wrongs
  • God doesn’t rejoice in iniquity
  • But rejoices in the truth
  • God is patient
  • God is kind (1 Corinthians 13)

A friend sold his house and beloved orchard to buy a new home in a new state to begin his and his second wife’s new life.

Heard upon waking in my spirit last month: “To Make You Feel My Love” sung by Garth Brooks

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”                      1 John 4:18

 

Sufferings

“Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.”                                  1 Peter 4:12-13

Beautiful song, prayer with scripture from City Harvest Church, Singapore: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CtugyJHPgg.    “Oh, the Glory of Your Presence” (God gave me tangible answer to prayer once after praising Him with this song)

Derek Prince said of Father God: Some things only come about by suffering…He’s interested in His sharing His sufferings with us

“That’s My Dad”

“His name is Daddy,” a little boy informed us on the bus pointing, the man nodded & said smiling, “that’s right.”

The sweetness of the moment and the concerted smiles all around made me wonder, do we know who our Father in heaven is?

Romans 8:15

“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.'”

 

 

“Keep Preaching,”

I told a man who was harassed for sharing the good news of Jesus, and another man preaching on the bus.

“My word will not return to Me void.” Isaiah 55:11

“Woe’s me, if I preach not the gospel!” Paul exclaims in 1 Corinthians 9:16

“As you go, preach, say ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'” says Jesus in Matt 10:7

“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor…” prophesies Jesus in Luke 4:18
