How does your life reflect God's forgiveness?
Brothers, listen! In this man Jesus there is forgiveness of sins. Acts 13:38 NLT Be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
Ephesians 4:32 NLT
Proclamation of the Good News of God's forgiveness is what my Christian testimony is all about. That includes forgiveness within my marriage. There is great testimony of God's power when I forgive Teresa as He has forgiven me. Nothing about myself wants to forgive. It is only through the work of the Holy Spirit that I am able to forgive. Forgiveness is a divine reality that I must first receive from my Creator. Only then can the Spirit prompt me to share that forgiveness with others. I remember when God humbled me with this truth through the words of Isaiah 53:4-6. Christ took on my sickness of selfishness and price and carried my pain to the cross. Jesus was pierced for my harsh words and snippy attitudes with my wife. He was crushed by my "white lies" and subtle dishonesty. The Savior took on the punishment for my years of neglecting my wife and forgetting my kids. Because of Christ's forgiveness, Teresa and I can proclaim that it is possible to live in harmony with one another. We are grateful to be able to proclaim God's work in our marriage, to be able to demonstrate to those around us that we don't go to sleep with unforgiveness or bitterness in our hearts. This testimony has only been possible through the divine provision of His forgiveness.

1 Cor 3:5-9 and we will learn that a fruitful harvest requires a faithful witness. Paul writes, “What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, even as the Lord gave opportunity to each one. I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth. Now he who plants and he who waters are one; but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor. For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, God’s building.”
First, we are servants. We are nothing in and of ourselves. We are simply God’s mouthpieces through whom people come to believe.
Second, we all have different roles and responsibilities in God’s garden. Some plant, some water, some have up-front gifts, and some serve behind the scenes. However, all servants are equally significant.
Third, God is the One who causes the growth. Twice in 3:6-7, Paul states, “…but God was causing the growth.” We are the means by which people believe, but God is the cause. He alone determines if and when a person believes in Jesus Christ.
Fourth, we are all one in God’s program. We are not to compete against each other; instead, we are to complement each other. We all need one another to fulfill God’s work. To the degree that we are faithful garden tools, God will grant us eternal rewards (3:8).
Finally, we work for God. In 3:9a Paul calls us “God’s fellow workers.” We do not work for ourselves or even for one another; we work for God.

Pictured is dedicated to our cat, Serene, who has been missing from home since 11-10-12! We seriously miss him; raised him from a kitten and his mate(Brittany) is sooooo, missing him. God knows the hurt and longing we have for him to be home with us. Amen
In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting place will be glorious. (Jesus Christ)
But for those who fear you, you have raised a banner to be unfurled (see footnote for unfurled)against the bow. (Jesus Christ DEFEATS bow which is the bow of antichrist in Rv. 6:2)
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. (Jesus Christ- King of Kings, Lord of Lords. Amen)
I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest. (Antichrist)
Revelation Given In Prayer: Father, thank you for making Yeshua the banner by which we turn our gaze upon. Mine eyes have seen His Glory! Because He stood in the blaze for us; you commission us to tell His story. Thru the Root of Jesse a seed was sown; now through out all nations His name shall be known. In Heaven on the Right of the Father’s Throne does he sit; interceding for us with no end. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom you have told. The Banner You bestowed is the “One” who broke sin’s mold. Our King and Our Lord as prophesied in Revelation 19:11 on White Horse shall He ride and with the Sword of His Mouth He shall brake the bow of him in Revelation 6:2 that is set to ride. To You Father we pray: strengthen us to serve your Kingdom this and everyday. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus’ name, we Pray. Amen

Feast Of Trumpets
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying,
In the seventh month, in the first day of the month,
shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of blowing of trumpets,
an holy convocation.
The shofar was used for many purposes such as:
Shofar sounding the Tekiah: the “blast,” one long blast with a clear tone.
Shofar sounding the Shevarim: a “broken,” sighing sound of three short calls.
The Teruah: the “alarm,” a rapid series of nine or more very short notes.
The Tekiah Gedolah: “the great Tekiah,” a single unbroken blast, held as long as possible.
A combination of Tekiah, Shevarim, Teruah, ending with a Tekiah Gedolah.
