Jesus the Vine

“I am the vine, you are the branches…

“You can do nothing without Me”  Jesus in John 15:5

Business practices actually promote using ‘the grapevine” to find out information and further business.

We’re are in the world, not of it.  Let us churches curtail gossip, refuse to hear it.  It takes a strong person and godly leaders.

Remember, we are to imitate Christ, not the world.

“You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them”.  Matthew 20:25 (NIV)

Signs Are Everywhere

Confess your sins and He who is faithful and just will forgive you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness, (1 John 1:9)

A friend of a friend OD’d on drugs.  Warning sign to us all to get right with God.

The friend who related it to me said she was addicted to clothes, and other things, she repented.  Glory to God.

Father God, You don’t want anyone to perish.  Comfort the family & friends of those caught in this plague. Save us oh Lord, in Jesus’ name.

Lord, Bless My Enemies

Give good health, mental clarity, peace in their heart, strong faith in You, remembrance of Your Word (John 14) at the right times, visions & dreams to comfort & guide.

Restore all that the locusts ate (Joel 2:28), all that was lost.  Make “all things beautiful in its time,” (Ecc 3:11). and “work all things together for good,” (Rom 8:28) may they love You with the highest Love.

“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.” Luke 6:27-28 (NIV)

“The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,” Isaiah 61:1 (NIV)

More Value

Jesus in Matthew 6

Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?”                 Jesus in Matt 6:25-26

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”        Vs. 34

“Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”   Matt 10:31

Who are we in God?  We are His sons and daughters.  I heard God has no grandchildren.

Fasting From Doubt

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”        Proverbs 3:5-6

“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”                   Jesus in Mark 11:23

“Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.”                                           John 14:11

Fasting doubt for ‘lent’
