TWO GARDENS AND TWO CHOICES

It’s been a minute! I’ve been in prayer and seeking the Lord on many matters-both personal and where we are in this nation.  Below will be what our sweet Savior has given to me and to share.  As always…”Be a Berean” Acts 17:11


Proverbs 24:27
“Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house.”


My Heart’s Desire


TWO GARDENS AND TWO CHOICES

 


Romans 5:6-11(KJV)

6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

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

9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.


NOTE: The following study and scriptures is what was revealed to me and to share for my brother and sisters to read for themselves and seek the Lord for His revelation to them!  God bless.


GARDEN OF EDEN

Garden of Eden – Man disobeyed God and sin enters the world. (Physical death becomes reality)

Garden of Gethsemane – The Garden where Eternal Life begins in Christ Jesus only!

Remember it’s about Jesus!

Matthew 26: 36-46

36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.

37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.

44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.

45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.

Sleeping Church

Jesus warns us to NOT be a sleeping Church!    (click here=> Sleeping Church)

Highlighted scripture above in Matthew 26 are the highlights the Holy Spirit “pointed out” to study and pray for revelation.

MT. 26: 36-46

v-40 1st Jesus checked on disciples and found them asleep (Church). He ask them, “What could ye not watch with me one hour?”

v-41 Watch and Pray WARNING!

  • Spirit willing but the flesh is weak

v-42 …”again” 2nd time and he prayed

v-43 3rd time..He came and found them asleep “again”; for their eyes were heavy.

v-44 3rd  He went away “again” and prayed a “third” time and saying the same words.

v-45 …sleep on now, and take your rest/hour at hand/Jesus betrayed into hands of sinners.

v-46 Rise, let us be going, behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.


Prayer:  Father, I humbly ask for your wisdom to lead us, your knowledge to give us the tools to do “your will” and not ours, and your understanding to do your will in these times of testing.  Remind us each to daily :

Full Armor of God Ephesians 6

God’s Protection Psalms 91

Complete Healing Isaiah 53

In Jesus name I pray. Amen.


 

Only God’s Power

Romans 13:1


Acts 2:33 – Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

 

Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

WHERE DOES YOUR PEACE LIE

The Source of Peace

Return unto the Lord thy God

“Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others — the armies of heaven — praising God:

‘Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to all whom God favors.'”

Luke 2:13-14 

About today’s promise

“No doubt life for the average person wasn’t all that noticeably different on the night Jesus was born. Inns and taverns were busy with their customers. Shepherds gathered around the fire to keep warm as they watched over their sheep. But in a secluded corner of Bethlehem, in an out-of-the-way stable, a baby slept in a manger. And as the shepherds settled down for a quiet night, the angels assembled into a vast choir and shattered the silence of that night by loud praises. Imagine the shepherds’ response: shock, fear, and then, awe. They knew that they had to find this extraordinary child whose birth the angels had announced.”

As you celebrate Christ’s birth on this joyous day, seek out Jesus as the shepherds did years ago. Use this heavenly song to rejoice in Jesus’ birth.

A prayer for today…

Glory to you, God, in the highest heaven and peace on earth to all whom you favor…
