I Sing Because I’m Happy

“O my dove, in the clefts of the rock,
In the secret places of the cliff,
Let me see your face,
Let me hear your voice;
For your voice is sweet,
And your face is lovely.”

Song 2:14

Singing my whole life to God, from earliest memory.  You are always here, no one compares to You, Father God.

Saw a vision of someone smiling who tried to hurt my feelings. They’re entrapped by their hate.  Jesus is freedom.  “Where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” 2 Corinthians 3:17 Halleluia.

Our Soul Has Escaped

Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers;
The snare is broken, and we have escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.”

Psalm 124:7-8

“If we’ll just learn to worship God even during the difficult circumstances, He will change them for the better very quickly if He so chooses.”

Oswald Chambers, December 18, My Utmost

“Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.” Psalm 91:3 (KJV)

“Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.” Psalm 141:10 (KJV)

Since every person is redeemable through Jesus Christ, you can always attribute this prayer as to the wicked spirits of Satan. Praise God!

In a Garden

Jesus was arrested:

“When Jesus had spoken these words, He went out with His disciples over the Brook Kidron, where was a garden, which He and His disciples entered… Then the detachment of troops and the captain and the officers of the Jews arrested Jesus and bound Him.” John 18:1, 12

God will comfort you:

“For the Lord will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places;
He will make her wilderness like Eden, And her desert like the garden of the Lord; Joy and gladness will be found in it, Thanksgiving and the voice of melody.”  Isaiah 51:3

We receive work:

“Then the Lord God took [a]the man and put him in the garden of Eden to [b]tend and keep it.”   Genesis 2:15

We receive paradise:

In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him.”                Revelation 22:2-3

Goodwill to Men

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them,

‘Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.’

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

Luke 2:8-14

“For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37

“A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of Your people Israel.” Luke 2:32

“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”                                 Matthew 1:21

 

Jesus is Born

“I am the First and the Last” Revelation 22:13

“Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” Revelation 19:10b

Jesus is the ministry of reconciliation:

Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.”  2 Corinthians 5:18-19

We’re so in wonder about Jesus’ birth because;

  • Who He is,
  • Why He came down to earth,
  • How He saves us,
  • How He loves us.

Many blessings to you all to know Jesus fully!

Praise God!  Glory, blessings, honor, and power to You forever, Lord 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.

 

N.O.T.W.

We’re not of this world, a friend encourages me.

John 17:

“Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You.” Jesus prays in the garden, verse 11

“I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.”  verse 14

“They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.” verse 16

James 4:4         “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” 

Romans 12:2          “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” 

 

Not What I Think

“Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”   Psalm 119:105

At the suggestion that I search google as to what the Bible is: that’s head knowledge!  It’s what the Bible says that I believe, what is the truth.

God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”                                         Jesus explains in John 4:24

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.”                  Hebrews 4:12-13 (Biblegateway)

“Never enthrone common sense.”  Oswald Chambers August 9, My Utmost

“Your truth shall be my shield & buckler.” Psalm 91:4

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!
