EVEN ANGELS WORSHIP JESUS, SO HOW ABOUT YOU?

“And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, ‘Let all God’s angels worship him.'” Hebrews 1:6

Even angels worship Jesus.

We are instructed to love Him with all our hearts, and I believe angels do that also.

I worship Jesus today for His sacrifice on the cross – that place of shame and torture.

While all the created beings of the universe worshiped Him, he hung there for you and me. Every breath was a painful effort as He pushed up with His feet and pulled with His arms, just to fill His lungs. Each cycle for 6 hours causing excruciating pain as He accepted my sins and my sinful condition.

Oh, Jesus, thank you and I worship you my Creator!

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!

EVIL IN THIS WORLD JUST MAKES JESUS LOOK BETTER AND BETTER :)

“For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.” Colossians 1:16

This text has confused many people who ask, “Why did God allow Hitler?”

I admit it’s a difficult question, but this verse says that everything exists “for Him,” that is, “for God.”

So, let’s not misunderstand, each leader on Earth has a responsibility to God to be loving, benelovent and fair. That’s the intent. But, unfortunately, many have done just the opposite.

All the sin and suffering in this world, just highlights more effectively the love of Jesus. It makes it easier for us to demonstrate the beauty of His life and sacrifice.

I praise God for Jesus today.

WHAT DOES THE NAME “JESUS” MEAN TO YOU?

“that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,” Philippians 2:10

Yes, I will and do worship Jesus my Lord and my Savior!

Do you worship Jesus?

When you think about who He is, it is compelling. And it’s a joyous experience.

I praise God for Jesus Christ.

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS TALKING – ARE YOU LISTENING?

“There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 1 Corinthians 12:4

After you and I perform our spiritual exercises each day we are better prepared to listen as the Holy Spirit speaks to our hearts and guides is in our other activities.

Scientists have proven through experiments that our minds are shaped by what we do and what we think about, and as the sweetness of God’s Spirit is dwelt upon we are shaped into God’s image – we begin to partake of divinity.

So we change for the better over time. We also change as we grow spiritually. We have more courage. We have more wisdom. We have more love for others and take more interest in the lives of others.

We become new creatures with new spiritual gifts through the power of God.

I praise God for you and what each one does on social media. Reaching out to those in need. Providing encouraging words for all.

JESUS – MY LORD AND MY GOD!

“Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” John 20:28

Is there now any doubt?

Jesus accepted the attribution, and He has power over death. What a blessing! What good news!

Some day soon graves will open.

Some day soon He will appear in a cloud of glory just as He promised as recorded in the Gospels.

He said, “I will come again.”

The Bible says that every eye shall see Him.

I know that you and I are eagerly waiting.

I praise God for this promise. I praise Him for His generosity and love.

JESUS LOVED THE FATHER. DO YOU?

“Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?” John 14:9

If you’ve followed my posts then you know I like to talk about God the Father. And why not? He’s the One I pray to.

When Jesus said these words, He revealed an exciting fact proving that the Father is not angry.

Let’s get this straight. The Old Testament “Lord” was Jesus. The Father was basically unknown to man until Jesus revealed Him.

Jesus revealed in clarity the Father and the Holy Spirit giving us a larger view of the glory of God. Something to overwhelm us!

It helps me understand how far above me God is in power and wisdom. It places it in perspective.

As I’ve said many times before, I love the Father. And I hope you do too.

I praise God for revealing the Trinity for us to contemplate and appreciate.

I PRAY FOR YOU TODAY. WHO ARE YOU PRAYING FOR?

“I and my Father are One.” John 10:30

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;'” John 11:25

These words of Jesus are very comforting. They reassure us of the ease in which we accept and are accepted for salvation.

But there is a catch. Did you know there is a catch?

The catch is that this is just the beginning. After we accept salvation there must be more.

After accepting salvation we must grow in Christ.

This is imperative. Our relationship with Jesus must grow and it will if we spend time with Him.

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and will forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness, and this is a daily event. We must confess our sins and feel contrition. Then He covers us with His robe of righteousness.

But there is more! John also says, “No one who is born of God will continue to sin.. . .this is how we know who the children of God are.”

So, there is a need for us to become intimate with God. Then He can mold us and help us develop a new heart of love and devotion.

This is good news because living close to God brings so much peace and energy.

I praise God for His faithfulness.

JESUS IS LORD!! PRAISE HIS NAME!! :)

“Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!” John 8:58

What a statement!

Jesus was talking to the church leaders – hypocrites.

They picked up stones to kill Him, but His time wasn’t yet come, so He slipped away from their midst.

I am so thankful that Jesus is Lord.

Our best friend is of the highest order. He is God. He is our Creator.

What more can we say? We can only praise Him for His boundless love.

I praise God for Jesus. I praise Him for salvation.

IMAGINE SEEING ALL THE “DEAD IN CHRIST” ARISE AND COME OUT OF THEIR GRAVES!!

“Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice.” John 5:28

For over 2,000 years God’s people have looked forward to this prophecy. A day when God’s Spirit is reunited with new bodies.

People with perfect health emerge from the earth, resurrected with perfect bodies without blemish or handicap.

A day of rejoicing indeed! A day when families will be reunited. A day when lovers will come together. A day when we will see the face of Jesus in all His glory!

How can one describe such a day? How can one imagine such a day?

The prophecies remain valid. The prophecies never fail.

This day is ever closer and closer as time marches on.

This is something we wait for, we eagerly anticipate.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT GOD WANTS YOU TO DO?

“Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” Luke 2:49

When Jesus was only 12 years old He knew what His mission in life was.

He connected the dots, and knew His life would end as a sacrifice for the sins of the human race.

For the next 18 years He studied further to prepare for His ministry.

He grew closer and closer to the Father, and He asks us, pleads with us to do the same.

He had a mission in this life, and we also have a mission in this life.

The Father has something for you to do.

Do you know what it is?

If you don’t know, then spend time with Him and the Holy Spirit will open the way and you will learn.

I praise God for Jesus and for the Holy Spirit that makes so much sense out of this life.

ARE YOU A DISCIPLE FOR JESUS? :)

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations. . . . teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19, 20

It’s not enough to call ourselves disciples of Christ.

It’s not enough to preach and baptize.

No, there is more to it. We must become more like Jesus, and if we try doing it on our own we fail miserably.

The only way to become like Jesus is to spend time with Him.

Yesterday someone asked me, “How do we become friends with God”?

I said, “By spending time with Him.” And that’s the only way.

As we spend time with God, He changes us. He changes our desires, He changes our urges, He changes our language and purifies it.

Oh, my friend, put all your energy into prayer and study and meditation. Then your behavior will become fruit and automatically change for the better.

So few people realize how this works.

Please try it.

I praise God for the Holy Spirit that creates in me a desire to seek after God.

SERVING GOD IS SERVING OTHERS :)

“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.” Acts 17:24-27

Why do I find it refreshing to learn that God is not served by human hands? He is not creating living beings to make His life more convenient, no He does it in order to express His inner and outer love more fully!

Any service we do in heaven we will do for other created beings and for the glory of God.

Because He is so giving and forgiving we seek ways to accuntuate His character to others. We want everyone to see and know what we see and know about God.

He created his throne by His own power. He lives by His own power. But He uses created beings to communicate and to organize activities.

He uses created beings to help us as angels surround earth to protect us from the evil designs of the devil.

My friends, rejoice with me for the love of God and the faith of Jesus!

I praise God today for what and who He is!

ARE YOU MORE INTERESTED IN JESUS OR YOUR CHURCH?

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” Matthew 28:18

Jesus said these words and they are profound.

What would you do if you had unlimited power?

Jesus actually had to be very careful. He had to measure His words, and His advice.

Anything He said remained and took on importance, so He spoke of love and the main mission for His followers.

We could learn from Him in this regard.

There is a video going around Facebook about which church is the right one. It shows the beginning date for all churches and concludes with only true one is the one being in existance from the apostolic days.

I’m not interested in answering the question raised in this video regarding the “true” church. No, I’m interested in believing what the apostles believed. I’m interested in worshiping like the apostles did.

The Bible says not a jot or tittle should be changed, so that tells me that church traditions of men’s making must not contradict scripture.

The Bible says that those followers of Jesus at the time of the end will keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus.

That’s what I’m interested in.

You and I have to decide what that means, and then we shop for a church that agrees with what we believe.

The Holy Spirit guides us in this process, so we are not alone.

I encourage everyone to spend time with God and search scripture to find courage and guidance in these matters.

I praise God for the Bible. I praise God that Jesus has all power and His word is a surety.

“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.

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?

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

This is indeed an incredible promise.

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.

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.

Imagine having great intelligence and a memory that is photographic.

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!

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!

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.

How can I describe my thankfulness?

I can only praise God for Jesus my/our Savior.

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.

I praise God for Jesus, for my Savior.

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.
