Apothnesko

Hebrews 9:27

JesusWatches

Mark 13:5 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:

Hebrews 9:27

27) And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.


Word Study:

Apothnesko is the Greek verb rendered “die” in Hebrews 9:27. Its first use is in Matthew 8:32, in reference to a herd of pigs dying in the sea through drowning. Hence, apothnesko clearly can refer to biological death. However, apothnesko is also the verb the apostle Paul uses six times in his discussion of baptism in Romans 6:1-11.

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”
Psalms 1:1 (KJV)

JESUS IS THE LIFE BOAT

Mark 5:21-43, Jairus approached Jesus on a boat.

Focus Point: Fear “DOA”

36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

Author’s Note:

We face personal trials and tribulations in our personal lives which tries our faith.  God’s Word equips us in our faith to lean on Him only and His Word for every area of our lives.  When in our quite place with God we seek to hear His voice and Jesus is our advocate to approach the Throne of our Father.  Jesus advocates our prayers and His Holy Spirit delivers the answer to our prayers.  In a noisy world we have to remind our selves to allow the Holy Spirit to be the “filter” of our communication line with God. 

 

Notice as soon as Jesus “heard” the news delivered He immediately interceded and fear was “DOA!”  He turned to Jarius and said, “Be not afraid, only believe.”  As believers when we’re going thru tough moments we sometimes forget to make fear “DOA” and give satan a foothold when he sees this crack in our armor.  Jesus says, “Be not afraid, only believe.”  Write it on post it notes and plaster it everywhere as a reminder:  Mark 5 36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.”

 

God Bless.

 

 

I think why has America turned from God?

Jude 14-15; Joel 3:14; Isa.26:21-27:1 Rev. 19:11-21

 

A new day is born.  I look to the sky and my heart is torn.

I think why has America turned from God?

Our freedoms and liberties wash away into the sea like grains of sand.

“Where are my people who use to take a stand?” echoes in my spirit from Father above.

My arms reach to the heavenlies for God to send my spirit peace on the wings of a Dove.

I think why has America turned from God?

My soul moans for Christ’s Return.  His bright and glorious face shines a thousand times that of the sun.

I imagine walking on the beach and suddenly I feel a hand on my shoulder as if to say: “My child I am here with you this and every day.  Let not your heart be in dismay. For you know I am never far away!”

Again I hear: “Let your heart of clay be formed to mine that will carry my love for all time.”

I think why has America turned from God?

Corruption and sin are found thru out the land.  Darkness crouches in corners and alley ways to seek its’ next victim.

Church where is your salt and light Christ said to proclaim on mountain tops?  Why oh why have you left your first love, Jesus Christ?

Prosperity and wealth is gotten by those in charge fulfilling their roles of taskmasters off the backs of obedient citizenry.

I think why has America turned from God?

A hand on my shoulder calms my spirit to say:  “My child the day is here when not only my children must choose who they serve but those who walk in total darkness of this world.  My Bride is asleep and must wake before it is to late.  The table is set for My Wedding and the Consummation with My Bride!”  Once the Bride enters the Groom’s chamber and the door is shut it will be to late.  The great deception has begun and My Bride the Church has not fulfilled the Great Commission to gather in the harvest of souls for My Father’s Kingdom.  WHY?  My blood I did shed for the redemption of mankind’s sins of this world.  Each will give an account for their time on earth and how it was spent.  My Child your anguish I carry for you and give you peace and strength.  Nor shall any come against you as walk in my light and hear my voice.  Those who come against you lift not your voice or hand for they will be witness to their own words and doings.  Go forth share my love and My Word for Father God.  Let not your heart be troubled for “I have overcome the world!”

I look to the sky and a new day is born with hope and love in Christ’s strength as I go His way.  A new zeal He gives my spirit to stand and go forth to see His glorious appearing at His Second Coming!  At the door He stands to enter and victory proclaim:  King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Faithful and True is His name.  (Rev. 19:11-21)

I think America must repent and turn from her sins and call upon Christ in humbleness and humility confessing our sins and seek forgiveness.  This warning is real and the words are true.  As always be a Berean and seek Jesus in all matters and revelation for the interpretation according to His Word and not mine.

Faith in Christ

1 Corinthians

1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;

6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.

13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

14 I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius;

15 Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.

16 And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.

17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:

27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.

30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

The “Word”

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
Matthew 24:36 (KJV)


Zechariah 10:4

Out of him came forth the corner, out of him the nail, out of him the battle bow, out of him every oppressor together.

Psalm 118:22

The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief corner stone.

 

Ephesians 2:20

“And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;”

1 Peter 2:6

“Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.”


The strength of a horse does not impress him; how puny in his sight is the strength of man. Rather, the Lord’s delight is in those who honor him, those who put their hope in his unfailing love.
Psalm 147:10-11


Revelation 17:14

These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.”

Revelation 19:13-15

He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.

John 1:1-2

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
