An important lesson.

“God does not give us everything we want, but He does fulfill His promises, leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer”

We have a epileptic cat.

One day I opened a jar of coconut oil and he just gobbled it up. He then proceeded to have seven seizures in less that eight hours.

The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said:” You see, sometimes what we desire Jehovah will not give us because it will do us more harm than good. What we think is good is actually a curse. “

So if you have prayed for something and have not received it, instead of pouting thank Poppa for it because it would end up doing you more harm than good.

By the way a little pet advice. DO NOT give your cat or dog dry food. It causes many serious health issues including diabetes.

And, instead of putting a big bowl of food out for them where they can be gluttons and put on weight, feed them a meal in the morning and in the evening.

Every vet I talked with has said the same thing.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19 ) for blessing with giving me what I need and not giving me what will do me harm. I praise You in the name of Your greatest gift, Jesus Christ. Amen May you have a grateful towards He who has given so much to you.

Seleh- stop and think about it.

A Virgin, Immanuel and the Incarnation

Ahaz was faithless.

Neighboring countries of Syria and Israel banned together to fight the Southern Kingdom of Judah. Ahaz, the king of Judah, sent for the king of Assyria to come to his rescue.

The LORD God is sovereign in the affairs of the nations and He sent the Hebrew prophet Isaiah to counsel Ahaz. Isaiah said, “Take care, and be calm, have no fear and do not be fainthearted because the two stubs of smoldering firebrands . . .” (Isaiah 7:4).  The two threatening countries are just burned up pieces of firewood. God said, “It shall not stand, nor shall it come to pass” (v. 7).

What would you have done if you were Ahaz? The pressure on Ahaz was intense, not just the threat of war, but the LORD was breathing down his neck as well. “If you will not believe, you surely shall not last” (v. 19). Ahaz, you are as good as gone yourself if you do not trust Me. If you trust Me I will deliver you from this smoke, but if you don’t you are through as a king. Moreover, trusting in the Assyrian army is not trusting in Yahweh.

Ahaz refused to trust in the LORD. So He spoke to the king again, “Ask for a sign for yourself from the LORD your God; make it as deep as Sheol or high as heaven” (v. 11). Go ahead, ask Ahaz! What an opportunity to see God do the impossible!

King Ahaz got a little religious. “I will not ask, nor will I test the LORD” (v. 12). That was exactly what he was doing by not trusting Yahweh. God invited Ahaz to ask for the “sign.” He was not testing God; God was testing him. The “sign” was a pledge of divine certainty, a miracle wrought for evidential purposes.

What would you have asked for? How would you have responded?

Now if Ahaz had been a wise man he would have gone ahead and asked. When God proposes a sign it is not a test; it was an invitation to come and see what God can do in a time of crisis. “Listen now, O house of David!” Isaiah was getting to a little testy. “Is it too slight a thing for you to try the patience of men, that you will try the patience of my God as well?” (v. 13). Isaiah did not say “your” God, but “my God.”

“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel” (v. 14).

I have no problem with the “virgin” because I do not have any problem with “Immanuel.” The greater event is not the “virgin,” but “God with us.” The Incarnation, God becoming flesh, is the great mystery. Isaiah was referring to something very unusual. It would not be unusual for a maiden to conceive; that happens every day. However, a “virgin,” a marriageable young lady of unblemished reputation would be a very unusual “sign.” It pointed to the greater event.

J. W. Watts said the sign of the virgin would be “an encouragement to a faithful remnant to Israel. As a wonder of wonders such as had just been offered, and as a condemnation of the faithless elements in the line of David.”

The prophet Isaiah developed the idea of the child to be born (7:14), His birth (9:6f), His reigning (11:1f), and His death as the suffering servant of the LORD (Isa 52:13-53:12).

“God with us.” That is the wonder of wonders. God in the corporeal self-manifestation of Himself would be a super-human person. God with us is the God-man. He is the incarnation of Deity. Immanuel would Himself be El (God). This child to be born would be God among His people, and characteristic of Him.

“God with us” is “Christ, in you the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). “For in Him [Christ] all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority” (Col. 2:9-10).

How did the LORD God fulfill His “sign” given to Ahaz? The angel Gabriel said to the virgin, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy offspring shall be called the Son of God” (Luke 1:35). “God with us” is “Jesus, for it is He who will save His people from their sins” (Matthew 1:21).

“God with us.” “Christ in you.” Not only is all the fullness of Deity dwelling “in bodily form” in Jesus Christ, but “in Him you have been made complete . . .” (Col. 2:10).

The apostle Paul, in the verses that follow, stresses the Christian’s vital union with Jesus Christ. “And in Him you have been made complete . . . and in Him you were also circumcised . . . having been buried with Him in baptism, in which you were also raised up with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. And when you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions . . .” (Col. 2:11-13).

Don’t miss the greatest mystery in the Bible. “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” (1:27).

God’s great goal in the gospel ministry is “that we may present every man complete in Christ” (v. 28).

SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

As You Have Received Christ

As You Have Received Christ

The only way you can live the Christian life is by divine provision.  Jesus said, “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).

The apostle Paul wrote, “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him (Colossians 2:6).

“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord…”

How did you receive Him?  There is only one way as taught in scripture.  It is by grace through faith in Christ (Acts 4:12).

Phillips translates Colossians 2:6, “Just as you received Christ, so go on living in Him – simple faith.”

The apostle John said, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12, NASB 1995).

You receive “Jesus Christ the Lord” by believing on His name.  “As many as received Him, as many as have believed on Him.”  To have faith in Him is to receive Him.

Do you have that attitude of faith and trust in Jesus Christ?  Faith indicates a relation to Christ as Savior.  It is submission to His Lordship as King of our lives and confidence in Him as our high priest.  Do I conduct my life in submission to the king of my life?

Have you received Jesus Christ the Lord?  “Jesus” is the name given to Him at His birth meaning “Yahweh saves,” “Jehovah saves.”  That is why the apostle Peter declared there is no other name given among men whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12).  Calling on all other names for eternal salvation will send you to an eternal hell.  There is salvation and eternal life only in Jesus Christ.  Jesus is the Savior who came to this earth to die for our sins and give us God’s kind of life.  Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me” (John 14:6).  “He who has seen Me has seen the Father” (v.9).

This same “Jesus” of Nazareth is the Messiah, the anointed King and High Priest.  The Messiah to the Hebrew people was the King – Priest.  He is both the One who reigns as sovereign over our lives and the One who intercedes on our behalf.  The King is also the Priest.  The King who has supreme authority is also the Priest who offers the one perfect sacrifice of Himself on behalf of His people.

Has Jesus Christ become your Lord?  “For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11, NASB 1995).  Have you bowed to that name?

If you have never “received” Him as “Jesus Christ the Lord,” you cannot “so walk in Him.”  Do you have this kind of a relationship with Him?  Have you surrendered your soul to Him?

The comparison the apostle is bringing out in Colossians 2:6 is the fact that we have been saved by grace through faith is the same way we live the Christian life. We are saved and sustained by that same kind of faith in our Lord.

“Just as you received Christ, so go on living in Him – simple faith.”  Taylor paraphrased, “And now just as you trusted Christ to save you, trust Him too for each day’s problems; live in vital union with Him.”

The word “walk” (peripateo) is figurative of “the walk of life,” or your life conduct.  Make the Lord Jesus Christ truly “Lord” and Master of each day you live.  Maintain a close personal fellowship with Christ; your very life depends on it.  We must conduct our lives as men and women who have been united with Christ deriving our life from Him.  Because of this living relationship with Him, we are to conduct our lives in dependence upon Him (Jn. 15:5).

As you have received Him, keep on walking.

Selah! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

For What They Have Done.

“So my advice is, leave these men alone. Let them go. If they are planning and doing these things merely on their own, it will soon be overthrown. But if it is from God, you will not be able to overthrow them. You may even find yourselves fighting against God!” Acts 5:38-40 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

Every government or group or agency that wages war against Christians and Jehovahs values wages war against Christ.

Who do you think is going to win that war?

This is exactly what has happened through out history.

Whenever tyrants have tries to eliminate Christians the exact opposite happens. It not only thrives but it grows.

Just look at China for prove of that during Mao’s reign of terror.

The ones that persecuted the Christians look like they are winning for a while but their downfall comes quickly and they suffer for their wicked deeds.

Just look how Pol Pots final years were spent.

So, do not be afraid of the tyrant wicked politicians or the woke crowd which is nothing but a bunch of Whining Willies that have spaghetti for a spine.

It looks like they are winning now but their doom is signed by the blood of the Christians they persecute.

O Lord, You will punish them for what they have done. Lamentations 3:64 The Holy Bible, The New Life Version

Seleh. Seleh means to stop and think about it.

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Hashopet (Judges 11:27 The LORD the Judge ) that you are a fair and impartial judge and each one of us shall receive our appropriate rewards for the deeds we have done on this planet. I praise You in Your just name. Amen

But God Has Not Allowed Him

But he has cheated me, changing my wages ten times. But God has not allowed him to do me any harm. Genesis 31:7

So he gathered a group of his relatives and set out in hot pursuit. He caught up with Jacob seven days later in the hill country of Gilead. But the previous night God had appeared to Laban the Aramean in a dream and told him, “I’m warning you leave Jacob alone!” Genesis 31:23-24 The Holy Bible ,The New Living Translation

Laban had cheated Jacob but out of this Jacob was blessed with an increase of flocks over Laban.

Jacob noticed Labans family had become so angry with him they were ready to kill him.

Jehovah spoke to Jacob and told him to vamoose.

Labans family took off in hot pursuit. Jehovah warned Laban not to harm Jacob.

What do you think would have happened if Laban had of tried to harm Jacob?

Many times the wicked will lay traps for the righteous but God will bless us with prosperity instead of failure. This will enrage the wicked. But God will advice us to vamoose.

The wicked will come after us with a blood lust.

But God will protect them.

Do you think Jehovah will allow them to harm a child of His? I do not.

That is why I was never afraid of the threats the tyrants in the government made to the unvaccinated ( like me ) when I refused to put that Frankenstein poison ( vaccine ) in my body .

Is it not interesting how the vaccinated are suffering much more than the unvaccinated?

Or when threatened for refusing to to wear the face diaper- face mask ( like me ).

Jehovah spoke with me at the beginning of this scam and told me not to comply.

If He tells me not to do something do you think He will allow some bully to hurt me for obeying Him?

My history says He will not .

Remember follow The Holy Spirits guiding not mans.

The Holy Spirits is for your own good while mans is for his own profit ( and how much profit did the drug companies ( legalized dope pushers ) and government lackies make off of that covid scam? ) .

The evil ones will try to hurt you for refusing to submit to them and choosing to obey God rather than them but God will not allow that to happen.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Immeka (Judges 6:12 The LORD Is with You ) for blessing me with The Holy Spirit to walk with me and guide me through out the day, every day. Thank you that He warns me of scams that will hurt me. Thank you for His undefeatable protection from the wicked ones that seek to devour the righteous. I praise you in the name of my Heavenly King You have blessed me to serve, Jesus Christ. Amen
