Pray For America

Dear Heavenly Father,

We pray You will give us a president and leaders who will honor and respect You as the One and Only True God. We ask that You give us government leaders who will pray for Your will, and guidance. Lord we ask that You pour out Your spirit on this nation to help each of us discern good from evil, not as the eyes of man but through Your spiritual eyes. Lord we ask that You humble our hearts so we will be a nation filled with gratitude and thankfulness.

In Jesus Almighty Name, Amen

1 Corinthians 2:10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. 11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God.

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

The Full Armor of God

16 Aug

 ~Prayer For Protection~
Ephesians 6:10-20

Spiritual Warfare
Dear Heavenly Father,
I am strong in You and in the strength of Your might. I put on the full armor of You, so that I will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For my struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the Heavenly places. Therefore, I take up the full armor of You, so that I will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. I stand firm therefore, Having Girded My Loins With Truth, and Having Put On The Breastplate Of Righteousness, and Having Shod My Feet With The Preparation Of The Gospel Of Peace, in addition to all, I take up The Shield Of Faith with which I will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And I take The Helmet Of Salvation, and The Sword Of The Spirit, which is Your word. With all prayer and petition, I will pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, I will be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the Saints. Holy Spirit, pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
In Jesus Almighty Name. Amen

 

Christ in Us

31 Mar

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.~Christ In Us~

The Holy Spirit is the spirit of Jesus living in us. His fruit manifest and His light shines forth as the attributes of the spirit flow out “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”

Colossians 2:1 For I want you to know how great a struggle I have on your behalf and for those who are at Laodicea, and for all those who have not personally seen my face, 2 that their hearts may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ Himself, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. 4 I say this so that no one will delude you with persuasive argument. 5 For even though I am absent in body, nevertheless I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good discipline and the stability of your faith in Christ.

Colossians 4:2-6 “Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving, praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned, that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak. Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.”

Colossians 1:27 “To whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

Ephesians 3:14-21 “For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend through all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.”

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
John 14:6

Those in Christ are sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise. Ephesians 1:13-14

What is the Perfect in 1 Corinthians 13:10?

3 Oct

What is the Perfect in 1 Corinthians 13:10?

1 Corinthians 13:
4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things…
8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part; 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away. 11 When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. 13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
In Hebrews 11:1 “ Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
Romans 8:24-25 “For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it.”

Hope and Faith leave when seen, but Love is Eternal!
 
Some teach the perfect in 1 Cor. 13:10 is the “Canon of the scriptures”.
But is that correct?
Look at the Greek meaning for the word perfect, it is an adjective.
Perfect in 1 Cor. 13:10 is the Greek word teleios
1) brought to its end, finished

2) wanting nothing necessary to completeness

3) perfect

4) that which is perfect

a) consummate human integrity and virtue

b) of men

1) full grown, adult, of full age, mature
 

Not to sound dogmatic but I believe the perfect in this verse refers to the children of God coming face to face with the Lord and being transformed into our glorified bodies, where hope and faith are no longer needed because we will see fully and LOVE is perfected in total UNITY.
When will this happen? Lets look at verses:

1 Cor. 13:12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.
1 John 3:2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.”

Made Complete

THE PERFECT summed up~

When we see Jesus face to face we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. He will give us a perfect glorified body that will never perish! There will be perfect Unity, perfect Love, our Bridegroom (Jesus) and the Elect chosen ones (the Bride) living in the New Heaven and New Earth. The Eternal Kingdom of God will be the glorious Eternal Sabbath Rest from all sin and all unrighteousness.  

1 Corinthians 2:9
But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

 
Take note* since LOVE endures forever, it is superior to all other gifts. Though as a Child of God I would never put limits on the power of the Holy Spirit working in supernatural ways.
 
1 Corinthians 13
1 If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.
 

Walking in the Spirit is the reflection of our Lord. Jesus is the Light of the WorldThe fruit of the Spirit should be as a light in each of us.

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness,

Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-control

God Bless Each and Every One of You!

Acts 2:17 ‘AND IT SHALL BE IN THE LAST DAYS,’ God says,

AND YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS;

18 EVEN ON MY BONDSLAVES, BOTH MEN AND WOMEN,
I WILL IN THOSE DAYS POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT
And they shall prophesy.

 

God’s Spiritual Wisdom

21 Sep
  Wisdom~Understanding~Knowledge
Wisdom, Understanding. and KnowledgeGod’s Spiritual Wisdom And A Heart Pleasing To Him
Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Thorns and Cross
Proverbs 8:11 “For wisdom is better than jewels;
And all desirable things cannot compare with her.
                 
12“ I, wisdom, dwell with prudence,
And I find knowledge and discretion.
13“ The fear of the LORD is to hate evil;
Pride and arrogance and the evil way
And the perverted mouth, I hate.
Lets look at Solomon~ After Solomon’s father (King David) died Solomon had a dream. In the dream God asked Solomon  “What can I give You?” Look how Solomon responded 1 King 3:6 Then Solomon said, “You have shown great lovingkindness to Your servant David my father, according as he walked before You in truth and righteousness and uprightness of heart toward You; and You have reserved for him this great lovingkindness, that You have given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day. 7 “Now, O LORD my God, You have made Your servant king in place of my father David, yet I am but a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in. 8 “Your servant is in the midst of Your people which You have chosen, a great people who are too many to be numbered or counted. 9 “So give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?”
 We can see Solomon’s humility. He asked God for an understanding heart and wisdom for discernment. We find his request was pleasing to God and given to Solomon.  The Lord was so pleased with Solomon’s request that he said; “See, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you.” (Verse 12)

Ephesians 1:13 In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory. 15 For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.

 As children of God we are told to ask, seek and knock~

James 1:5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.

Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 “Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone? 10 “Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? 11 “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!

Wisdom That Comes From Above

James 3:13 Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. 18 And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Philippians 4:6 Be Anxious for Nothing

30 Aug
Philippians 4-6What a beautiful view from the plane, Thank You LORD!

BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING

A dear friend offered me her flyer miles to go visit her. I hadn’t seen her in 23 years, but I had overwhelming anxiety about leaving home for numerous reasons. I kept questioning should I take the trip or not. I knew I would not have any comfort until I had a clear answer from the Lord regarding His will. I started praying, asking the Lord for an answer. The answer came in a dream. In the dream I went to the doctor for my anxiety. The doctor said “take P l a y n”. He said the letters. I wondered what is P l a y n ? I had heard of Prozac for anxiety but never had I heard of P l a y n? When I woke up I continued to think about the dream and questioned, what is PLAYN? As I sounded it out, I realized it sounded out “take Plane”. Wow, the Lord had given me the answer and I felt great comfort. My daughter came over later that day and I told her about my dream. She said the night before a preacher was talking about praying over all your medications. She said she believed P.L.A.Y.N. had another meaning as an acronym, so we held hands and began to pray.
As soon as we finished praying the acronym was revealed to me
Pray Lord All Your Needs”                                   
So I googled, “Pray Lord All Your Needs” and amazingly the Lord showed me this verse~
Philippians 4:6  Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

The Lord is so amazing! I had so much anxiety and worry and sure enough praying was all I needed to find comfort for my anxiety and His clear answer! 
Prayer should be our first response rather than our last resort.

 

“FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT” ~Calling All D.U.C.K.S. To Come Out From Under The Bed~

2 Jul

                                                                                                               

  LEGALISM KILLS!!!
Paul said in Galatians 5:1” It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”The purpose of the Fruit of the Spirit is set us free from sin by telling us how to avoid sinning. We grow and mature as Children of God by bearing the Fruit of the Spirit.

Man can read the written word with man’s wisdom or with God’s spiritual wisdom. The outcome can be quite different! The interpretations and how we see things is can be like night and day. Man’s doctrine puts laws and commandments upon the Lord’s Children which should not be there. Legalism robs the freedom that Christ has given us.

As Children of God it is important we pray and ask the Lord for His spiritual wisdom to help see the truth. Jesus Made Love Mandatory so when reading the written word it comes alive in the hearts of those filled with love. Jesus told us to walk in the Spirit of righteousness and that means having total trust and faith in him. Let the fruit of the spirit pour out and be a light for the Lord. If one is trapped in legalism it is very difficult to see any light in them. They are as D.U.C.K.S. under the Bed. They may be “Devoted Unconditional the Christ’s Kingdom and Service” and know the written word like the back of their hand but something is missing and that is the Light!!! Legalism leads to unrighteous judgement, it causes a lack of compassion, humility, and mercy.


When we walk in the spirit, the “FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT”
shines forth to other people,
like a lighthouse shines forth it’s light.

Luke 8:16-17
“Now no one after lighting a lamp covers it over with a container, or PUTS IT UNDER A BED; but he puts it on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light. “For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light.

~Calling All D.U.C.K.S. To Come Out From Under The Bed~

The acronym D.U.C.K.S. stands for
Devoted Unconditionally to Christ’s Kingdom and Service”.

www.d-u-c-k-s.com/fruits_of_the_spirit.htm

“In essentials UNITY; in opinion LIBERTY; in all things LOVE”
God of all nations, We humbly ask you to guide us in all that we do. Strengthen us to love one another,
to help each other along in our faith journey.
Forgive us of our harsh thoughts, words,
and actions against people of other denominations in Christ. Help us to forgive one another, and join together, so that we may do YOUR work and glorify YOU LORD in the best way possible.
In Jesus name we pray,
Amen

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed!” John 8:36
