The Covering

“Let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.”  James 5:20

And he said, “Who are you?”

So she answered, “I am Ruth, your maidservant. Take[a] your maidservant under your wing, for you are a [b]close relative.”  Ruth 3:9

“Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,”             Romans 5:20

OMG! The ministry couple on CBN, where the husband adopted the wife’s son by another. Reminds me of the book of Hosea.

God is so much greater than our sins. Thank You Father God!

 

The Fire Comes

“John answered, saying to all, ‘I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.’ ” Luke 3:16

Burning yellow embers is Your fiery sunset, Lord God. 

You, God are the Deliverer, the Provider, the Hope giver, the Life giver, not like it was – it’s all new (2 Samuel 22:2, Psalm 28, Romans 15:13, John 1:4)

“Each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.” 1 Corinthians 3:13

  • Not the same – it’s going to be new (Revelation 21:5)
  • *Reinhard Bonnke has passed into eternal fellowship with Jesus.  Comfort and Peace to his family and close friends.
  • New ‘American Dream’ malls
  • The Lord has promised to never destroy the earth again by flood waters. (Genesis 9:11, 2 Peter 3:10)

Be a lamp, a fire in your communities, your families, your jobs!

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14

Early this year, Pastor John Arnott of Catch the Fire, Toronto said that God would do many new things in 2019.

 

That Day – Isaiah 12

And in that day you will say:

“O Lord, I will praise You;
Though You were angry with me,
Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me.
Behold, God is my salvation,
I will trust and not be afraid;
‘For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song;
He also has become my salvation.’ ”

Therefore with joy you will draw water
From the wells of salvation.

And in that day you will say:

“Praise the Lord, call upon His name;
Declare His deeds among the peoples,
Make mention that His name is exalted.
Sing to the Lord,
For He has done excellent things;
This is known in all the earth.
Cry out and shout, O inhabitant of Zion,
For great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst!”

Praise You, Lord Jesus, Father, You’re true, honest and worthy of all our praise!

 

Worship the King

“Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.
Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah”

Psalm 24:7-10

I’m not gonna worship money, I’m gonna worship You, my God and King!

“You are my King and my God, who decrees victories for Jacob.”

Psalm 44:4 (NIV)

And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace to you!’ 27 Then He said to Thomas, ‘Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.’ And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”                                          John 20:26-28

 

 

Stand Up For Jesus

“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.”  Jesus in John 3:16

Jesus Christ the only son of God, Praise You, Lord Jesus for all You’ve done for us, who are Your children, Your friends.  “It is finished,” You said.  Forever & ever Your work is complete, and You are seated on the throne in Heaven next to the Father.  Amen.

We are hurting for You, Lord, when people use Your name in vain and ignore who You are.

“When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished.” Then bowing his head, he gave up his spirit.” John 19:30 (KJV)

 

Miracle Appointment

A friend walked up to me, “Are you going to call?” She said before she left the house, “the Lord told me to agree with you in prayer.” Because she obeyed God, I received the answer I was praying for.  Thank You, Jesus!

Corrie ten Boom says, “love and obedience” in Not I, But Christ.

“But Samuel replied: “Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.” 1 Samuel 15:22 (NIV)

Jesus in John 21:17, “Do you love Me?”

The Serenity Prayer

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Jesus in Matt 7:7

Praying in the park one morning for God’s thoughts and words to be my thoughts and words, this prayer plaque literally fell out of a nearby pine tree!  Face down, complete with pine sap, only 3 squirrels jumping & running were present.

Lord Jesus, release Your faith to us, so that we don’t hold back in trusting You for everything.

It’s Who Ya Know

And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.”                           Jesus praying in John 17:3

“That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,”              Philippians 3:10

20/20 Vision

Hi, reposting from July 2018. God bless you all.

Loving Father, give us 20 / 20 vision as that year approaches.  You give true meaning because all life is Yours, all time is Yours.  I trust You.  So many other voices claiming to be right (Mark 4:18-19).  I delight in Your way.  Your way is Peace. 

“But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all His prophets, that Christ should suffer, he Hath so fulfilled,” Acts 3:18.

But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. “Look,” he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”  Acts 7:55-56.

“[Peter] He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance.  He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds.” Acts 10:10-12 (NIV).

1 Chronicles 21:16, “And David lifted up his eyes, and saw the angel of the LORD stand between the earth and the heaven, having a drawn sword in his hand stretched out over Jerusalem. Then David and the elders of Israel, who were clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces.”

Revelation 19:11, “And I saw heaven opened…”

Revelation 22:1, “And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.”

God, You decorated

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.” Psalm 19:1

“…In Whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”  Col 2:3

“Then God said, ‘Let the waters abound with abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the firmament of the heavens.” Gen 1:20

God, You’re beautiful to having created all of these things.
