“He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”
And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" And let him who thirsts "Come". Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely. — Revelation 22:17
My grandfather has been reminding us to be thankful lately. When everything seems overwhelming and full of stress, distress, and mayhem in your life, it’s a good reminder. It can be tempting …
Love is where we come from. “In the beginning…
Have you ever been frustrated with sin? Sin that you seem to keep doing over and over? Or maybe it’s a sin that you think you’ve conquered, and then suddenly find yourself back in the mud? Or maybe it’s something that you know you need to get rid of, but when you’re honest with yourself, your flesh desires it. Whether it be anger, fear, worry, lust, or anything else, we all have to face sin.
We are the rightful “owners” of this planet, which is under the rulership of our elder brother, the Lord Jesus Christ. This earth belongs to God, and we are His children. Therefore, this earth is our Family’s property, a Family home, so to speak. A Family holding that our Father has created with His own hands (from scratch) and given to certain members of our family as a home to live and grow in.
Today is the day. This is the hour. Now is the moment. This second is the appointed time. We must not wait. God has called each of His children for a purpose.
During this time around Christmas, many people’s thoughts turn toward our Lord Jesus… But do we really think about what the coming of Christ means for us? I’m not talking about the pat answer that He came to die on the cross and bring salvation for our sins. Let’s take a moment to take a step back and remember the big picture.
“Obedience is Walking and Talking and Living and Being with God!” We must “Discipline Ourselves to Obedience”. Whatever the Holy Spirit says, we MUST CONSIDER IT A COMMAND.
We are living in dark days for this world. So much of what we hear and see going on around us could strike fear into anyone’s heart. And it seems to be getting worse and more intense (though God’s children are standing stronger).
So many voices clamor for our attention in this world: the news, radio, the Internet, social media, texts, emails, commercials, advertisements everywhere you look, friends, the latest self-help book (or latest self-appointed advice-giver), and on and on.
God has promised us His safety as His children. Psalm 91 is a beautiful chapter describing the safety and shelter we find in God. As the world grows daily more wicked, the reassurance of God’s protection is needed now more than ever it seems.
