ARE YOU PRAYING TODAY AND WORSHIPING JESUS? :)

“When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted.” Matthew 28:17

I would love to have been there to worship Jesus face-to-face, wouldn’t you?

Imagine seeing His smile! Imagine watching Him bless children.

I wonder if birds were afraid of Him. Did they fly away as He approached?

Jesus is all the world to me, and I pray He is to you also.

He sent the Holy Spirit to help us and to comfort us. He wants us to partake of divinity and become like Him.

Jesus wants us to follow His model and have MUCH prayer with the Father, and I hope you do this today.

I praise God for Jesus.

Spiritual Exercise is an important part of my daily regimen, and it should be a part of yours too. If you spend an hour a day doing physical exercise to keep in shape, then why not spend an hour a day doing spiritual exercise? If you spend an hour a day in leisure activities like watching TV, then why not spend an hour a day with God?

Salvation is a one-to-one affair. Family or church worship isn’t enough to form and grow a relationship with God.

So, join me and spend time with God. You’ll love it!

JESUS LOVES AND USES SYMBOLS, AND THERE’S ONE MORE IMPORTANT ONE COMING :)

“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne.” Matthew 25:31

Can you imagine how that will look?

How many Millions of angels will surround Him, I wonder.

How large will the cloud of glory be?

But this verse describes how God is interested in symbolism.

I mean, look at all the symbolism in the Old Testament!

And now He won’t sit on that special throne until the time is right, until the appointed time.

That special time will shortly be upon us, and I’m so glad.

Jesus will come and this broken world will become desolate as the righteous saints are taken up into the cloud to be with Jesus forever.

Don’t you just love to think about that day?

I praise God for His plan of salvation that brings us closer to Him through His love.

JESUS IS WITH US AS WE SPEND TIME TOGETHER ON THIS FACEBOOK GROUP PAGE.

“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” Matthew 18:20

This is indeed an incredible promise.

Jesus uses His divine powers to be with us when we meet in His name.

Do you think He was speaking metaphorically? I don’t. I think He meant just what He said, and that’s of great comfort.

We are never alone when we partake of divinity – when we walk with God as dedicated Christians.

When we spend time in prayer and agonize with God over our needs and desires we begin to change.

I hope you and I’ve changed a little bit already today.

I praise God for Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.

I’M PRAYING FOR YOU TODAY – READ THIS AND BE BLESSED :)

“Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great:

He appeared in the flesh,
was vindicated by the Spirit,
was seen by angels,
was preached among the nations,
was believed on in the world,
was taken up in glory.” 1 Timothy 3:16

The mystery of Jesus is great – well beyond my understanding, but I believe.

Jesus did, indeed, appear in the flesh. He is human just like you and me.

He was tempted like you and me.

He prayed many times each day. He agonized over His human weakness and was given power.

You and I can pray. We can agonize over our human weakness and God will give us power also.

I have prayed over these words that when you read them the Holy Spirit will give them power in order to make you stronger in Christ.

We pray for each other. We can stay in constant communication with God and that blesses everyone including ourselves.

I praise God for prayer. People have prayed for me. People have prayed for you.

May the Holy Spirit fall upon you today and bless you and help you be a blessing to others.

READ THIS PROMISE FROM JESUS AND YOUR DAY WILL BE BRIGHTER :)

“and whoever lives by believing in me will never die” John 11:26

Imagine living in heaven without a thought of it ever ending.

How long will it take you to adjust to eternal life?

Imagine having unlimited energy, no headaches, no pains, no fatigue!

Imagine having great intelligence and a memory that is photographic.

We won’t get bored because of our duties as sons and daughters of God. We will still be creative as artists and musicians.

Oh, don’t you want heaven for your future?

I praise God for this promise of eternal life where there is no end.

PROPHECY ALREADY SENTENCED JESUS TO DEATH – HE LIVED 18 YEARS WITH THIS SENTENCE HANGING OVER HIS HEAD

“The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again.” John 10:17

Jesus was willing to give up His life for you and me.

That is a hard thing to do. It’s one thing to act in an emergency to save the life of a friend and quite another to act out a carefully laid plan.

For 18 years Jesus knew He must die. When at the age of 12 He went to the Passover and began to understand the ceremonies and for the first time He connected the prophecies of the Old Testament with the sacrificial system.

At the age of 12 He learned that He was the sacrifice for the human race. He must lay down His life, willingly – not impulsively. And for 18 more years He had to wait until the right time.

Oh, what torture for Him and a blessing for you and me!

Jesus paid it all and all to Him I owe.

I praise God today for the life and sacrifice of Jesus.

WE REJOICE BECAUSE WE LIVE THROUGH JESUS TODAY!

“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.” 1 John 4:9

I like this verse because it is packed with information about God and about salvation.

Have you ever thought about this verse?

How do I live through Jesus?

Jesus wasn’t perfect by accident. No, His parents spent much time with Him as they bore their responsibility bravely, sincerely and carefully. I am a parent and I must confess that I was not as faithful. Mary is blessed even today as a result of the good work she did as a parent.

Because of the life of Jesus, you and I are saved! We live, by faith, through Him and God can accept that – the law can accept that.

We accept it as legitimate, however undeserving because it only increases our love for God and that makes the difference. If it were illegitimate then we would only have contempt for God’s law and His legal system.

So we go about our daily routine with praise on our lips for the love of God and for Jesus.

Thank you Lord for saving my soul.

Thank you Lord for making me whole.

Thank you Lord for giving to me,

Thy great salvation so rich and free!

DO YOU SMELL LIKE JESUS?

“and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.” Ephesians 5:2

People should smell us? Well maybe not, but our aura, our presence should be so positive that it resembles the effects of a sweet smelling aroma.

Jesus made an impact on everyone He met. Yes, He did miracles, but the Holy Spirit can use us to reach and change the hearts of others. And that’s a miracle.

As we enter a room or while we wait in line at a fast food restaurant we can make a difference.

While we walk down a hallway at work, or sit at a conference table for a business meeting we can make a difference.

Our “Joy in the Lord” can and will affect people around us.

We might feel depression coming on us, maybe our home life is a disaster, but if we love the Lord with ALL our hearts, the Holy Spirit will bring us joy that will be shared.

I praise God for this “Holy Joy.”

IF YOU ARE DEPRESSED – PLEASE READ THIS

“Now then we are ambassadors for Christ” 2 Corinthians 5:20

Ambassadors are very important people. They operate at the very highest levels of government. They are paid well, have free housing, and have a car and driver.

They are appointed by the head of their government and represent their nation to others around the world.

You and I are ambassadors for God. We are more than that because we represent a kingdom, not a democracy.

God’s kingdom is ruled by a benevolent dictator, and we are His children.

So, our ambassadorship is heightened by the fact that we are children in the royal family.

Just imagine yourself today as a Princess or Prince in this royal family.

Throughout eternity all created beings will rejoice in the human connection to God through Jesus – King of kings.

If you ever suffer from depression, just read this again, and again.

I praise God for this perspective. My view of life is much higher than it used to be.

DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THE HOLY SPIRIT HELPS YOU TODAY?

“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

When I think of the Cross and the suffering of Jesus I’m reminded of my own sinful condition.

In my own terms the suffering of Jesus seems overly severe – I mean, why are my sins that bad?

And then I look at the life of Satan. How beautiful it was and how quickly it changed to pure evil.

If the Holy Spirit was removed from me, that’s how I would be also!

Oh, the grace of God provides the Holy Spirit for you and me that we might resist our natural tendencies and partake of divinity!

I praise God today for His grace and assistance. His love reaches out to me every moment to help me.

DID YOU KEEP A SABBATH DAY HOLY THIS WEEKEND?

“And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.” John 5:16

Jesus taught the Jews how to keep the Sabbath. That it was good to help people on that day.

During the last 200 years the world has slowly given up Sabbath keeping.

Today almost everyone treats God’s holy day like it’s any other.

Today people go to church for an hour or two and then pretend God’s holy day is over.

Does that not bother you?

Does the Holy Spirit impress you on this subject?

How can you and I partake of divinity (see 2 Peter 1:4) if we fail to partake of His holy day?

How can I expect blessings if I ignore the greatest one available to me each and every weekend?

For 1,800 years people kept the Sabbath.

Where is it written that the Sabbath ended?

I praise God for that precious day. For a day set aside for me to give Him more of my attention – time for the Holy Spirit to mold me further.

IS THIS YOUR FAVORITE VERSE IN THE BIBLE?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

Many people think that God the Father is angry and doesn’t like us. They are afraid of Him. They fail to read this text carefully.

When you let family members babysit for you when your baby was 6 months old, did you miss the child?

Now imagine the Godhead being together for an eternity and then the separation for years. Imagine how the Father felt knowing things would never be the same again.

Imagine knowing that their relationship could not ever be the same because Jesus is now also a human.

But that pain is surpassed by our love to God in return for salvation. Jesus said that those who are forgiven the most will love the most in return.

Yes, the human experience has changed everything, but love will prevail and be shown to overcome all evil.

I praise God for His love and sacrifice.

ARE YOU LOVING TODAY?

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.” John 1:14

It is very comforting to know that we have Jesus who is our advocate before the law of God.

When Lucifer rebelled against God he probably thought he could enjoy life on his own terms.

But look what happened! He quickly became more and more selfish. Within a few years his feelings toward God changed.

When Jesus came, Lucifer wanted to kill Him.

Lucifer has earned the name “Satan.”

This example if proof of the need for us to love each other.

If the Trinity didn’t love each other the same thing would happen to them.

I pray that I might have love, display love and embrace love today.

I praise God for love. For Jesus.

WHAT ARE YOU ANOINTED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO DO?

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” Luke 4:18-19

Jesus knew as He began His ministry what He was to do.

He had read the prophecies, and understood His life was to end in sacrifice, but for three years He would be a blessing to those in need.

He would minister to the Jewish nation and demonstrate the life they should have been living.

I read this text and wonder if we are reaching the “poor” in spirit, if we are healing the brokenhearted with words of comfort and actions of love.

We are all called by God to do our part. Not as a requirement, but as fruit of our relationship with God.

I praise God today for the life of Christ that I might have a better understanding of what God is like. What heaven is like.

JESUS IS LORD!! WAS PROPHECIED!!

“But thou, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall come forth unto Me He that is to be ruler in Israel, whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.” Micah 5:2

This prophecy predicts the birth of Jesus and confirms that He is, in fact, the Lord.

This prophecy describes His divine existence – a member of the trinity who has always been from eternity.

A miracle? Yes.

Something I can understand? No. But something I accept as true.

Imagine, our Savior is the Lord God!!

He is our creator, and our Savior, and our new High Priest, and in Him we sit at the throne of God in heaven.

DO YOU KNOW THAT THE DANIEL PROPHECIES TELL THE EXACT YEAR OF JESUS’ BIRTH AND DEATH?

Daniel 9:25 Predicts His Birth 490 years after the decree to rebuild Jerusalem.

Daniel 9:26-27 Predicts His death in the middle of a prophetic week, or 3 1/2 years after His ministry began.

The Persion scholars studied the book of Daniel, and that’s why the “wise men” were looking for the Messiah and followed the star to visit the baby Jesus.

God’s prophecies never fail, and He has said there will be a judgment and the only way to be saved is to be a close friend of Jesus.

And the only way to be a close friend of Jesus is to spend time with Him each day.

I hope you do that today. Pray, study and meditate on the life of Jesus Christ.

ARE YOU WEARING THE ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS TODAY?

“And he shall be called THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.” Jeremiah 23:6

It’s not that my sins are so bad that bothers me. It’s that my inner condition is sinful.

My desires and my natural inclinations are sinful, and that’s why we need the Righteousness of Christ.

While the Holy Spirit is guiding me and while I am being molded by God into what I will become, Christ covers me and makes me clean.

Isn’t that a beautiful thing?

You and I can come to the throne of grace in prayer without hesitation only because of Jesus Christ.

I have good days, and I have bad days when it comes to behavior, but the underlying weakness in my character and personality remains sinful.

But that’s changing for us as we spend time with God in prayer, meditation and study.

We change little by little to be more like God as we partake of divinity.

I praise God today for salvation and for His grace. I praise Him for helping me be more loving as I spend time with Jesus.

HAVE YOU BEEN ANOINTED BY THE LORD?

“The Lord hath anointed me. . .to comfort all that mourn.” Isaiah 61:1-2

Many people today are helpless in a society with little or no social safety net.

People are fleeing North Africa and headed to Europe in search of stability and a way to support their families.

People are fleeing war zones in order to survive.

They have no money. They have no security. They have no certainty in their lives.

This world is a mess. Even Europe and America are struggling with decisions to survive.

Central banks are printing more money than has ever been printed. They are experimenting with a theory never before tried.

If they are wrong, what if they are wrong?

What havoc will ensue if they are wrong!

We need Jesus. We need the Holy Spirit.

I survive day to day only with the blessings of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

I have peace in my heart as I write this in the early morning hours.

Only as you and I partake of divinity can be face these dangers with confidence and with a smile on our faces.

Thank God for His blessings that go straight to the heart.

Thank God for Love that overflows into us and that we share with others.

I praise God for that connection he gives us with prayer, and I pray for you dear reader that you will feel His presence in your life today.

WHAT IS MORE FRUSTRATING THAN AN ANIMAL THAT WANDERS OFF?

“All we like sheep have gone astray.” Isaiah 53:6

Boy, isn’t this true?

What is more frustrating than an animal that wanders off?

We used to have a small poodle. He was the cutest and friendliest dog. Everyone loved him, but he had to be on a leash because he wouldn’t stay in our yard.

Our phone number was recorded on his collar, and we would get calls, “We have your dog, come and get him.”

One day a woman on her way to work, stopped her car and picked up the dog and drove to her parent’s house and put him in the back yard and then called us with the address of where to go and get him.

You and I are just like that poodle, like sheep. We wander away from God and God’s ways.

We are weak, and undependable, but Jesus came to change all that.

He is our new model, and the Holy Spirit is here to also help us.

I praise God for His love and help in my time of need.

CHRISTIANS WERE ABDUCTED FROM A CHURCH YESTERDAY IN SYRIA

“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:” Isaiah 53:3

Reuters Headlines today include:
“Islamic State militants have abducted dozens of Christian families after seizing a strategically located town in the central Syrian province of Homs.”

Our brothers, sisters and their children are suffering today.

They have been abducted. They are being abused.

Children torn from their mothers arms. People torn from their families.

Suffering – great suffering as Satan unleashes his agents to persecute God’s people.

I pray for these people today. May they find peace in their hearts as they meditate upon the sufferings of Jesus Christ.

Jesus knew sorrow. He knew grief. He knows and understands our challenges in this life.

“I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.” Isaiah 50:6

The yanked hair from his beard.

Have you ever wondered how painful that must have been?

And then they spit upon His face.

He remained stoic. He moved not. Flinched not.

Tears? Most assuredly. Complaints? Not a one.

Why?

Because He knew these prophecies. He knew this was the only way you and I could receive salvation.

He did this for you.

He did this out of love.

Oh, Father give me love, the love of Jesus! Give me a burden for souls. Give me that zeal that Christ had.

This is my prayer today.

What say you about God today?

Spiritual Exercise is an important part of my daily regimen, and it should be a part of yours too. If you spend an hour a day doing physical exercise to keep in shape, then why not spend an hour a day doing spiritual exercise? If you spend an hour a day in leisure activities like watching TV, then why not spend an hour a day with God?

Salvation is a one-to-one affair. Family or church worship isn’t enough to form and grow a relationship with God.

So, join me and spend time with God. You’ll love it!

Share this if it has blessed you.

EVEN TODAY JESUS IS ALL THE WORLD TO ME!

“Dogs surround me, a pack of villains encircles me; they pierce my hands and my feet.” Psalm 22:16

Today I’m meditating on a moment in time, a moment of prophetic time, a moment when the Creator of this universe was thrown to the ground, and was treated like the vilest criminal.

My Jesus, my Savior, my righteousness was stretched out and defiled with iron spikes and hardened hearts.

Jesus took the pain and suffering for me. He complained not. He could have said just one word and thousands of angels would come and rescue Him, but His faithfulness to prophecy was intact. He allowed it to happen.

Oh, that I might be that faithful today as I face the powers of evil and weaknesses within.

I praise God for my Jesus. I praise God for salvation.

THE FATHER LOVES YOU TOO :)

THE FATHER LOVES YOU TOO

“If you have seen me, you have seen the Father.” John 14:9

Wow, you say!

Many Christians think that God is angry.

Many Christians are so afraid of God that they pray to Mary.

My friend, children were drawn to Jesus. They flocke to Him because He was so loving and gentle.

Jesus tells us that the Father is just like Him.

Sometimes when we think of Judgment we are forced to confront the truth that the Father is the final judge regarding sin, but that doesn’t change the facts about His loving nature.

Someone has to be the final judge, and He fills that role.

When I pray to the Father I’m drawn to Him as a spiritual child. He responds with the Holy Spirit that comforts me and gives me courage.

I praise God for His faithfulness and goodness.

Help People See Your Works To Reveal Your Heart Today

Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, But who can find a faithful man?” Proverbs 20:6

While reading the Old Testament of the Bible I notice that God speaks little about Himself. Most of the good things said about Him are words written and spoken by people who knew him. He has been judged by the human race based upon His works, and with us it is no different.

Let people see our works, and let them reveal our hearts that show we are faithful men and women. God’s grace is a fruit of His character, and I pray that my works will be a fruit of my relationship with God.

I praise God for grace again, and again.
