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-38 Watch with me!

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.


 

Discernment

1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.


Acts 17:11
“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”

1 John 4:1 – Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Philippians 1:9-10 – And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and [in] all judgment;

Hebrews 5:14 – But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, [even] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Hebrews 4:12 – For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.


Note:  Our nation is going thru some perilous times and more rough waters in the storm will increase!  Prepare spiritually and at home for your family. Live not fear nor walk in fear. (Psalms 23:4)  Call upon the name of the Lord and He will show you the way! (Psalms 86:11 ) The Lord says: Colossians 4:5  Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.  Colossians 2:6  As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:

In Jesus name. Amen!!!

Mark 11:24 – Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them].

My Heart’s Desire

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

In Jesus name. Amen.

Prayer

1 Timothy 2:1-2


It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.
Psalm 118:8

 

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

PRAY FOR AMERICAN AND LEADERSHIP!!

OUR NATION NEEDS JESUS
Moral depravity. Racial division. School violence. Hateful social media. Leaders grandstanding and stonewalling.
