What should be our attitude in prayer?

Then Eli realized it was the Lord who was calling the boy. So he said to Samuel, “Go and lie down again, and if someone calls again, say, ‘Yes, Lord, your servant is listening.'” So Samuel went back to bed. And the Lord came and called as before, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel replied, “Yes, your servant is listening.”

1 Samuel 3:8-10 NLT

Speak, Lord, in the stillness, while I wait on Thee; hushed my heart to listen in expectancy. 
Speak, O blessed Master, in this quiet hour, let me see Thy face, Lord, feel Thy touch of power.

Emily May Grimes 

God revealed

God revealed himself mightily to the prophet Elijah, sending fire to burn the sacrifice on Mount Carmel. But later, as Elijah moped on the mountain, the Lord taught him an important lesson. There was a wind, an earthquake, and a fire — but the Lord was not in any of these. Then came a still, small voice. That was how God chose to speak to His prophet. 

The same is true today. We long for fire from heaven to silence the skeptics once and for all, but God doesn’t usually work that way. Long ago He revealed Himself as a helpless baby sleeping in a dirty feed trough, and today He speaks quietly to ordinary people like you and me — if only we are still enough to listen. That is the sentiment expressed by Emily May Grimes in the words of the hymn, “Speak, Lord, in the Stillness.”

GOD IS A HIGH TOWER

GOD IS A HIGH TOWER

Morning

“I in them.”
John 17:23

If such be the union which subsists between our souls and the person of our Lord, how deep and broad is the channel of our communion! This is no narrow pipe through which a thread-like stream may wind its way, it is a channel of amazing depth and breadth, along whose glorious length a ponderous volume of living water may roll its floods. Behold he hath set before us an open door, let us not be slow to enter. This city of communion hath many pearly gates, every several gate is of one pearl, and each gate is thrown open to the uttermost that we may enter, assured of welcome. If there were but one small loophole through which to talk with Jesus, it would be a high privilege to thrust a word of fellowship through the narrow door; how much we are blessed in having so large an entrance! Had the Lord Jesus been far away from us, with many a stormy sea between, we should have longed to send a messenger to him to carry him our loves, and bring us tidings from his Father’s house; but see his kindness, he has built his house next door to ours, nay, more, he takes lodging with us, and tabernacles in poor humble hearts, that so he may have perpetual intercourse with us. O how foolish must we be, if we do not live in habitual communion with him. When the road is long, and dangerous, and difficult, we need not wonder that friends seldom meet each other, but when they live together, shall Jonathan forget his David? A wife may when her husband is upon a journey, abide many days without holding converse with him, but she could never endure to be separated from him if she knew him to be in one of the chambers of her own house. Why, believer, dost not thou sit at his banquet of wine? Seek thy Lord, for he is near; embrace him, for he is thy Brother. Hold Him fast, for he is thine Husband; and press him to thine heart, for he is of thine own flesh.

Evening

“And these are the singers … they were employed in that work day and night.”
1 Chronicles 9:33

Well was it so ordered in the temple that the sacred chant never ceased: for evermore did the singers praise the Lord, whose mercy endureth forever. As mercy did not cease to rule either by day or by night, so neither did music hush its holy ministry. My heart, there is a lesson sweetly taught to thee in the ceaseless song of Zion’s temple, thou too art a constant debtor, and see thou to it that thy gratitude, like charity, never faileth. God’s praise is constant in heaven, which is to be thy final dwelling-place, learn thou to practise the eternal hallelujah. Around the earth as the sun scatters his light, his beams awaken grateful believers to tune their morning hymn, so that by the priesthood of the saints perpetual praise is kept up at all hours, they swathe our globe in a mantle of thanksgiving, and girdle it with a golden belt of song.

The Lord always deserves to be praised for what he is in himself, for his works of creation and providence, for his goodness towards his creatures, and especially for the transcendent act of redemption, and all the marvellous blessing flowing therefrom. It is always beneficial to praise the Lord; it cheers the day and brightens the night; it lightens toil and softens sorrow; and over earthly gladness it sheds a sanctifying radiance which makes it less liable to blind us with its glare. Have we not something to sing about at this moment? Can we not weave a song out of our present joys, or our past deliverances, or our future hopes? Earth yields her summer fruits: the hay is housed, the golden grain invites the sickle, and the sun tarrying long to shine upon a fruitful earth, shortens the interval of shade that we may lengthen the hours of devout worship. By the love of Jesus, let us be stirred up to close the day with a psalm of sanctified gladness.

ETERNAL LIFE IS IN CHRIST

ETERNAL LIFE IS IN CHRIST

Those who trust in God are no longer guilty

Think you’re an exception?

For all have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious ideal.

Romans 3:23 NLT

Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.

James 4:17 NLT

Details, please?

(1.) Remember what St. John says: “If our heart condemns us, God is stronger than our heart.” The feeling of being, or not being, forgiven and loved is not what matters. One must come down to brass tacks. If there is a particular sin on your conscience, repent and confess it. If there isn’t, tell the despondent devil not to be silly. You can’t help hearing his voice (the odious inner radio), but you must treat it merely like a buzzing in your ears or any other irrational nuisance. (2.) Remember the story in the Imitation, how the Christ on the crucifix suddenly spoke to the monk who was so anxious about his salvation and said, “If you knew that all was well, what would you, today, do or stop doing?” When you have found the answer, do it or stop doing it. You see, one must always get back to the practical and definite. What the devil loves is that vague cloud of unspecified guilt feeling or unspecified virtue by which he lures us into despair or presumption. “Details, please?” is the answer. (3.) The sense of dereliction cannot be a bad symptom, for Our Lord Himself experienced it in its depth — “Why has thou forsaken me?”

THE LORD SURROUNDS US

A Gift to Give
Deuteronomy 33:1-29
Read

Moses said this about the tribe of Judah:

“O LORD, hear the cry of Judah and bring them together as a people. Give them strength to defend their cause; help them against their enemies!”

Moses said this about the tribe of Benjamin:

“The people of Benjamin are loved by the LORD and live in safety beside him. He surrounds them continuously and preserves them from every harm.” (Deuteronomy 33:7, 12)

Reflect

Note the difference in blessings God gave each tribe. To Gad he gave the best land. To Judah he gave strength. To Benjamin he gave safety. To Joseph he gave abundant crops.

Too often we see someone with a particular blessing and wonder why God blessed them so much. However, these gifts are not meant to glorify those who receive them. The gifts are meant to empower them to provide for the needs of others. Gifts are meant for service, not glory.

Respond

What are the gifts God has given you? How can you use them to serve and bless others? Take a moment to thank God for giving you these gifts and ask him for eyes to see those who need your help.

 

 

PERFECT IN CHRIST JESUS

PHILIPPIANS 4:3

PHILIPPIANS 4:3

Morning

“And when he thought thereon, he wept.”
Mark 14:72

It has been thought by some that as long as Peter lived, the fountain of his tears began to flow whenever he remembered his denying his Lord. It is not unlikely that it was so, for his sin was very great, and grace in him had afterwards a perfect work. This same experience is common to all the redeemed family according to the degree in which the Spirit of God has removed the natural heart of stone. We, like Peter, remember our boastful promise: “Though all men shall forsake thee, yet will not I.” We eat our own words with the bitter herbs of repentance. When we think of what we vowed we would be, and of what we have been, we may weep whole showers of grief. He thought on his denying his Lord. The place in which he did it, the little cause which led him into such heinous sin, the oaths and blasphemies with which he sought to confirm his falsehood, and the dreadful hardness of heart which drove him to do so again and yet again. Can we, when we are reminded of our sins, and their exceeding sinfulness, remain stolid and stubborn? Will we not make our house a Bochim, and cry unto the Lord for renewed assurances of pardoning love? May we never take a dry-eyed look at sin, lest ere long we have a tongue parched in the flames of hell. Peter also thought upon his Master’s look of love. The Lord followed up the cock’s warning voice with an admonitory look of sorrow, pity, and love. That glance was never out of Peter’s mind so long as he lived. It was far more effectual than ten thousand sermons would have been without the Spirit. The penitent apostle would be sure to weep when he recollected the Saviour’s full forgiveness, which restored him to his former place. To think that we have offended so kind and good a Lord is more than sufficient reason for being constant weepers. Lord, smite our rocky hearts, and make the waters flow.

Evening

“Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”
John 6:37

No limit is set to the duration of this promise. It does not merely say, “I will not cast out a sinner at his first coming,” but, “I will in no wise cast out.” The original reads, “I will not, not cast out,” or “I will never, never cast out.” The text means, that Christ will not at first reject a believer; and that as he will not do it at first, so he will not to the last.

But suppose the believer sins after coming? “If any man sin we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” But suppose that believers backslide? “I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.” But believers may fall under temptation! “God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” But the believer may fall into sin as David did! Yes, but he will “Purge them with hyssop, and they shall be clean; he will wash them and they shall be whiter than snow”; “From all their iniquities will I cleanse them.”

“Once in Christ, in Christ forever,

Nothing from his love can sever.”

“I give unto my sheep,” saith he, “eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” What sayest thou to this, O trembling feeble mind? Is not this a precious mercy, that coming to Christ, thou dost not come to One who will treat thee well for a little while, and then send thee about thy business, but he will receive thee and make thee his bride, and thou shalt be his forever? Receive no longer the spirit of bondage again to fear, but the spirit of adoption whereby thou shalt cry, Abba, Father! Oh! the grace of these words: “I will in no wise cast out.”

[Jesus Walks on the Water] [6:45-51pp — Mt 14:22-32; Jn 6:15-21 6:53-56pp — Mt 14:34-36] Immediately Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd.

Mark 9:41 NIV

Amen.  Maranatha, Yes and Amen. Come Lord Jesus!  Amen

 

IS THERE A CLINK IN YOUR ARMOUR OF GOD?

have_a_blessed_day_pen_animated.288171727_std

 

We see the Scripture that even Jesus himself did not rebuke satan  (Mt.4:1-11)a. It may be fashionable to learn all the ways one can rebuke him through spiritual warfare seminars but the Bible says nothing about this. Jesus answered the devil‘s temptations by quoting Scripture correctly against the devil’s out of context quotations to him.

It is not necessary for us to rebuke satan for a number of reasons. First satan is a specific fallen angel he cannot be in all places at once , not even two places at once.  He is not the one who personally causes every person’s temptations or trouble or sicknesses, many times it is our own flesh. Satan does have a kingdom and many other fallen spirits serve alongside him to deceive and tempt man, they are called demons. They harass believers, yet we are told greater is he who is in us than he who in the world.

We cannot rebuke satan anymore than we can bind satan. If satan is being “bound” by people saying words out loud, their “binding” certainly does not last very long. God has given us His way to withstand the evil from His Word, it is called the Armor of God (Eph.6) .  It is by resisting the devil we do this by having the full armor of God, which is knowing the Scripture (Eph.6) it is all about Christ.  James 4:7 tells us to submit to God, resist in the  Holy Spirit and the devil will flee. Whatever we might be disobedient in, we are to correct ourselves, this is submitting to God, resist any temptations, and the enemy will no longer have a foothold in our lives, no chink in our armor.

 2 Cor.10:3-5 tells us that we do not fight with human weapons, plans or methods: 3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. Prayer and the Word is our weapon when used correctly to what opposes the truth of Christ and the Word. False ideologies and philosophies take people captive and do the same to us. In other words untruth, false patterns of  thinking, vain imaginations that capture people.

We resist and the Lord promises us that the devil will flee. Why? Because he sees he cannot penetrate our protection, even our greatest weakness cannot be used against us if we submit to God.  The shed blood of Christ Jesus is our covering: pure, perfect sacrifice, sinless, love to the point of  death on a cross.  Amen

I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have preserved my life.

 Psalm 119:93 

 But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

ISAIAH 28:13

JOHN 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

JOHN 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

James 4:7

STAND FIRM AND SEEK GOD’S HOLY COUNSEL

1 Peter 5:8-9

1 Peter 5:8-9

JAMES 4:7

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

 

Do you seek the counsel of others?

My child, listen to me and treasure my instructions. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight and understanding. Search for them as you would for lost money or hidden treasure. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He grants a treasure of good sense to the godly. He is their shield, protecting those who walk with integrity.

Proverbs 2:1-7 NLT 

Accepting advice

 

The degree to which people will listen is determined by the degree to which we have wise counsel for them. If you want people to listen to you, you yourself must listen to the right adviser. Like Samuel, listen to the Lord’s counsel — read his Word and hear what he says. There is no wiser counselor than he who knows every moment of every tomorrow and knows how you will fit into those moments. 

If you think you know it all, you probably know less than you think. If, in humility, you recognize how much help and counsel you need, you will likely seek it and get it. No one wants to waste time counseling a fool, because the fool doesn’t want counsel. We all enjoy sharing wisdom with the wise, and when we do, we discover new wisdom for our own needs. Proverbs 14:7 tells us that we should stay away from fools if we are looking for wise counsel.

RAPTURE OF THE CONGREGATION OF THE MESSIAH
“YESHUAT HASHEM KEHEREF AYIN” –
“GOD’S SALVATION COMES IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE.”
New Testament Saints – All believers in the Messiah, after the cross. The Church is composed of Believing Jews and Gentiles beginning at Acts Chapter 2 until the Rapture. The fact is that the Messiah
can come at any time to gather the New Testament Saints. There are no preconditions for the
“catching away of believers”. If Messiah comes in the middle of the tribulation or the end then we would
know exactly when he is coming and then we would get ready. The scriptures teach that the Messiah
will come secretly before the wrath. The Second Coming is exactly seven years after the signing of the
covenant with the Anti-Christ, but the rapture could happen at any moment.
The Rapture can come at any moment, Matthew 24:42,44 , Luke 12:35
Mansions are being prepared for believers John 14:1-3
Believers will meet the Messiah in the air (dead ones will rise first) 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Believers receive glorified bodies 1 Corinthians 15:50-58
Believers are delivered from the wrath to come 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10
Yeshua will come secretly before the wrath Luke 21:36 ,1 Thessalonians 5:1-10
Shofar (Trumpet) of Righteousness blown 1 Corinthians 15:52
There are normal conditions on the earth Matthew 24:38-44
(Note that the Church is not mentioned at anytime during the Wrath in the book of Revelations, The
church is heavily mentioned during the first three chapters, and not again until Revelation. 19:11-16.
Tribulation Saints are all believer who accept the Messiah Yeshua after the church is raptured.) There
are believers present during the entire tribulation. In fact the purpose of the tribulation is to bring people
to faith by means of God’s wrath, and cause them to cry out the Messiah. The Church is not mentioned
in any tribulation passage. The elect, believers, tribulation saints who come to Messiah after the rapture exist, but the Church is not mentioned in any passage.
BIMAH SEAT JUDGMENT FOR CHURCH SAINTS ONLY FOR REWARDS
Believers will be judged. Not for their sins, because our sins were judged on the cross. We are judged
for our works done in the body. Our works will be judged at the Bema. The Bema is the term for the
Judgment Seat. In the synagogue the Bema is the raised platform in the center of the synagogue
where the Torah is read. Messiah will be at the Bema to judge our works.
• An accounting of our works will be given Romans 14:10-12
• Basis of this judgment 2 Corinthians 5:10
• Bad works are burned 1 Corinthians 3:10-15
• Five types of crowns will be given to those who are faithful:
• Incorruptible Crown 1 Corinthians 9:24-25
• Crown of Rejoicing 1 Thessalonians 2:19
• Crown of Righteousness 2 Timothy 4:7-8
• Crown of Life James 1:12 , Revelation 2:10

Second Coming of Messiah to Save Israel from the Gentile Nations
Zechariah 14 :1 Behold, a day is coming for the Lord when the spoil taken from you will be divided
among you. 2 For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished, and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city. 3 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations,
as when He fights on a day of battle. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives,
which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east
to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other
half toward the south. 5 And you will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah
king of Judah. Then the Lord, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him!
(No where in scripture is there an indication of a “Battle of Armageddon” only a gathering of Gentile
nations for the purpose of conflict with Israel, the Battle begins in Petra or Bozrah in the southern
region of Jordan)

The Location of the Second Coming of The Messiah at Petra
Isaiah 63:1-6 Who is this who comes from Edom
(Southern Jordan), with garments of glowing colors from
Bozrah, This One who is majestic in His apparel, Marching
in the greatness of His strength? “It is I who speak in
righteousness, mighty to save.” Why is Your apparel
red, And Your garments like the one who treads in the
wine press? “I have trodden the wine trough alone, And
from the peoples there was no man with Me. I also trod
them in My anger, And trampled them in My wrath; And
their lifeblood is sprinkled on My garments, And I stained
all My raiment. “For the day of vengeance was in My
heart, And My year of redemption has come. “And I
looked, and there was no one to help, And I was astonished and there was no one to uphold; So My own arm
brought salvation to Me; And My wrath upheld Me.
“And I trod down the peoples in My anger, And made them
drunk in My wrath, And I poured out their lifeblood on the
earth.”

fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which
they broke, although I was a husband to them,” declares the Lord.33 “But this is the covenant which I
will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the Lord, “I will put My law within them,
and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.34 “And they
shall not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, `Know the Lord,’ for
they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares the Lord, “for I will
forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

Messianic Kingdom – General Characteristics
The Lord will establish a house in Zion: Micah 4:1-5
And it will come about in the last days That the mountain of the house of the Lord Will be established as the chief of the mountains. It will be raised above the hills, And the peoples will stream to it.
And many nations will come and say, “Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord And to the
house of the God of Jacob, That He may teach us about His ways And that we may walk in His
paths.” For from Zion will go forth the law, Even the word of the Lord from Jerusalem (not
heaven). And He will judge between many peoples And render decisions for mighty, distant nations.
Then they will hammer their swords into plowshares And their spears into pruning hooks; Nation will
not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they train for war.

The Shofar will Sound

Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last blast of the shofar (trumpet), the Tikiah Gadolah; for the shofar will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory” — 1 Corinthians 15: 51-54

LOOKING UNTO JESUS

Morning

“Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.”
1 Thessalonians 1:4

Many persons want to know their election before they look to Christ, but they cannot learn it thus, it is only to be discovered by “looking unto Jesus.” If you desire to ascertain your own election;–after the following manner, shall you assure your heart before God. Do you feel yourself to be a lost, guilty sinner? go straightway to the cross of Christ, and tell Jesus so, and tell him that you have read in the Bible, “Him that cometh unto me, I will in no wise cast out.” Tell him that he has said, “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” Look to Jesus and believe on him, and you shall make proof of your election directly, for so surely as thou believest, thou art elect. If you will give yourself wholly up to Christ and trust him, then you are one of God’s chosen ones; but if you stop and say, “I want to know first whether I am elect,” you ask you know not what. Go to Jesus, be you never so guilty, just as you are. Leave all curious inquiry about election alone. Go straight to Christ and hide in his wounds, and you shall know your election. The assurance of the Holy Spirit shall be given to you, so that you shall be able to say, “I know whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed to him.” Christ was at the everlasting council: he can tell you whether you were chosen or not; but you cannot find it out in any other way. Go and put your trust in him, and his answer will be–“I have loved thee with an everlasting love, therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” There will be no doubt about his having chosen you, when you have chosen him.

“Sons we are through God’s election,

Who in Jesus Christ believe.”

Evening

Bibleorchid

“Let not one of them escape.”
1 Kings 18:40

When the prophet Elijah had received the answer to his prayer, and the fire from heaven had consumed the sacrifice in the presence of all the people, he called upon the assembled Israelites to take the priests of Baal, and sternly cried, “Let not one of them escape.” He took them all down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there. So must it be with our sins–they are all doomed, not one must be preserved. Our darling sin must die. Spare it not for its much crying. Strike, though it be as dear as an Isaac. Strike, for God struck at sin when it was laid upon his own Son. With stern unflinching purpose must you condemn to death that sin which was once the idol of your heart. Do you ask how you are to accomplish this? Jesus will be your power. You have grace to overcome sin given you in the covenant of grace; you have strength to win the victory in the crusade against inward lusts, because Christ Jesus has promised to be with you even unto the end. If you would triumph over darkness, set yourself in the presence of the Sun of Righteousness. There is no place so well adapted for the discovery of sin, and recovery from its power and guilt, as the immediate presence of God. Job never knew how to get rid of sin half so well as he did when his eye of faith rested upon God, and then he abhorred himself, and repented in dust and ashes. The fine gold of the Christian is oft becoming dim. We need the sacred fire to consume the dross. Let us fly to our God, he is a consuming fire; he will not consume our spirit, but our sins. Let the goodness of God excite us to a sacred jealousy, and to a holy revenge against those iniquities which are hateful in his sight. Go forth to battle with Amalek, in his strength, and utterly destroy the accursed crew: let not one of them escape.
