Something New

Blood and water gushed out of Jesus’ side with the insertion of a sword (John 19:33-34).  This proved He was dead according to the movie “The Case for Christ,” because water filled the lungs (Lee Stroebel’s journey of total submission to Jesus). So when Jesus was resurrected, it was all God.

For God so loved the world, He gave…John 3:16.

Attitudes to be….Our Pastor friend on Sunday taught on “the Beatitudes” in Matthew 5:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 

Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

Matthew 5:3-12 (NKJV)

Praying for new revelations for you all from our Lord Father!  3 New things I recently learned: my husband showed me the falls near the old mill, which I never knew were there and passed near them everyday on my way to work;  What blood and water meant when Jesus’ side was pierced on the cross, (I’ve wondered this for 15 years and never heard an explanation before); and that the “Beatitudes” are attitudes and not from the word “beautiful.”

“Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19 (NKJV). (It was no accident my co-worker hung a spring wreath Jan 4th!)

Consecrate Yourselves

“Joshua told the people, ‘Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the LORD will do amazing things among you.'” Joshua 3:5.

You alone are holy, dear Lord.

We were listening to a pod cast where the speaker talked about sacraments.  What I found near to that word in the Bible is consecrate and holy.  Our take is everything God does is holy or sacred and when we do things with Him, then those things are also holy like eating, praying, everything you give to the Lord or do unto Him (Colossians 3:23).

On a church trip 12 years ago, the Pastor prayed over every meal, I began doing the same upon returning home  — the Lord will give you revelation about eating when you pray before a meal. And you’ll be truly thankful.

“Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” Proverbs 9:9-10 (KJV).

Here is a lovely article about consecration:   https://www.gotquestions.org/Bible-consecration.html

 

Revelation in an answer…

…to gossip in your churches.

Peter links being a busybody in with being a murderer in 1 Peter 4:15

It’s hurtful and not even true (Psalm 41:6).  News of others is tempting, but is harmful to the hearer (Proverbs 18:8)

Pray for revelation, the Spirit of Truth (John 16:13), we each must hear our Lord.  This the way, walk in it (Isaiah 30:21)

Seek peace (1Peter 3:11), speak peace (Proverbs 18:21) and be at peace with God, Who judges the hearts.

We pray for a Revival of the Lord’s Presence and Power
