Can You Imagine If

Everyone lies to his neighbors; they say one thing and mean another. Psalms 12:2 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

They say, “Our tongues will help us win. We can say what we wish; no one is our master.” Psalms 12:4 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

Can you imagine a politician answering a question truthfully?

Can you imagine an entire newscast or daily paper publishing an entire paper without any lies?

Can you imagine if companies told you the truth about their products?

Can you imagine if teachers taught the truth to their students instead of brain washing them with the politically correct nonsense ( and it is no- sense as it is not sensible )

Wow, what an earth shattering day that would be huh?

Can you imagine if the health officials told us the truth about the covid vaccines?

They are arrogant and think they have impunity and are getting away with it.

Can you imagine if they were held accountable for their lies?

Do not worry, they are.

Jehovah is a just judge and there is no manipulating their way out of their punishment.

The Lord will stop those flattering lips and cut off those bragging tongues. Psalms 12:3 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

But the Lord says, “I will now rise up, because the poor are being hurt. Because of the moans of the helpless, I will give them the help they want.” Psalms 12:5 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

But the wicked are all around us; everyone loves what is wrong. Lord, you will keep us safe; you will always protect us from such people. Psalms 12:8-7 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Gemuwal (Jeremiah 51:56 The LORD GOD of Recompenses ) that the wicked shall receive their appropriate punishment for their vile deeds. I praise You in the name of He whose anger is hot against these wicked souls, Jesus Christ. Amen Seleh stop and think about it.

At the Core of Liberalism Is

There is a way which looks right to a man, but its end is the way of death. Proverbs 14:12 The Holy Bible The New Living Testament

Do you remember about the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and the towns around them?

The people in those cities did the same things. They were full of sex sins and strong desires for sinful acts of the body. Those cities were destroyed by fire. They still speak to us of the fire of hell that lasts forever. Jude 1:7 The Holy Bible The New Living Testament

Today, many are scratching their heads and wondering how so many selfish, arrogant politicians are getting elected.

Could it be that birds of a feather lock together. The politicians are of the same manner as most in society today. They are spoiled, gimme, gimme ( while offering nothing in return ), lazy, ungrateful brats. They pull temper tantrums when they do not get their own way and run like cowards while screaming we are abusing them ( everything wrong in the world is the white mans fault, I can do what I want ( try to con impressive children into destructive behaviour like homosexuality, be a boy and go into a girls washroom ), and intolerant of them because they refuse to accept the truth when we speak it.

Be fair warned.

History teaches that every time society goes down this path, it self destructs.

The righteous may suffer hard times because of this but they will not suffer the punishment of the wicked.

“At the core of liberalism is the spoiled child — miserable, as all spoiled children are, unsatisfied, demanding, ill-disciplined, despotic and useless. Liberalism is a philosophy of sniveling brats.”P.J. O’Rourke

Seleh.

Seleh means to stop and think about it. Let’s think about how many times we have thanked Jehovah for His gifts whether they be big or small. Let us stop and think of how many times we have offered our time, resources and or labour to Him as a gift of love and appreciation.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Bore (Isaiah 40:28 The LORD Creator ) for blessing me with The Holy Spirit to make me sensitive to the gifts You bless me with and how to use those gifts to help others as a way to show my appreciation unto You. I praise You in the name of He who offered His life so I may have an eternal one with You, Jesus Christ. Amen

Who do You Think Is

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

Are You Saved?

Have you been saved?  

Have you come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ?  

It is a question that is almost exclusive to Christianity.

The word saved in the Bible had three tenses. We were saved from the penalty of sin the very moment we put our trust in Christ Jesus as our savior. We are now being saved from the power of sin by the process of progressive sanctification. Moreover, we shall be saved from the presence of sin at the coming of our Lord in His glory.

We were justified by faith in Christ, we are being sanctified by the Holy Spirit and we shall be glorified when Christ returns for us.

The word salvation is related to the good news of the atoning death of Jesus Christ.  The apostle Paul wrote, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16).

God has delivered us from the penalty and power of sin and has preserved us with His gift of eternal life.  It is the sum of all blessings bestowed by God through Jesus Christ.

It is only by the name of Jesus Christ that we can ever be saved.  Acts 4:12 says, “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”  “For whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13).

In salvation God deals with the whole person: spirit, mind and body. The gospel of salvation includes justification, sanctification and glorification.

In the context of this great verse, the apostle Paul reminds his readers, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them” (Romans 1:18-19).

Therefore, we are all without excuse.  “And we know that the judgment of God rightly falls upon those who practice such things” (Romans 2:2).  What “things”?  Paul tells us in vivid detail in 1:18-3:20.

The Jews were guilty of breaking God’s revealed law.  “For it is not the hearers of the Law who are just before God, but the doers of the Law will be justified” (Romans 2:13). The only problem is no one, but Jesus Christ ever lived up to the Law.  All stand guilty before God. “There is none righteous, not even one” (3:10).  “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (v. 23).

In vivid contrast Jesus Christ revealed the perfect righteousness of God.

However, not only have the Jewish people broken the written Law of God, but “When Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves, in that they show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience bearing witness and their thoughts alternately accusing or else defending them, on the day when, according to my gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus” (Romans 2:14-16).

What was the problem?  Again all stand guilty before God.  “For there is no partiality with God. For all who have sinned without the Law will also perish without the Law, and all who have sinned under the Law will be judged by the Law; for it is not the hearers of the Law who are just before God, but the doers of the Law will be justified. For when Gentiles who do not have the Law do instinctively the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law to themselves” (Romans 2:11-14).

What is the solution since we are all depraved sinners?  Jesus Christ is our only hope.  Salvation is a gift of God by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Rom. 3:22-25Eph. 2:8-9Rom. 5:6-810:9-1013:8-11).

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith” (Romans 1:17, NASB 1995).Selah!

Are You One of the Elect of God?

Jesus said, “All that the Father gives me shall come to Me; and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out” (John 6:37).

The answer to the question, are you one of the elect of God, is answered by another question: Have you believed on Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? If you have responded to His free grace, and have believed on Him alone for salvation, you should know that you are one who was given to Jesus before the foundation of the world.

When Jesus was praying to the Father the night before His sacrificial death on the cross He said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify Thy Son, that the Son may glorify Thee, even as Thou gavest Him authority over all mankind, that to all whom Thou hast given Him, He may give eternal life” (John 17:1-2).

Jesus is referring to the covenant between God the Father and God the Son when God gave to Jesus in salvation that great company for whom He would go to the cross and die.

His death provided the objective and judicial basis whereby the elect would be saved.

The prophet Isaiah spoke of that day in his poem of the Suffering Servant. “But the LORD was pleased to crush Him, putting Him to grief; if He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, and the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand. As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; by His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, as He will bear their iniquities” (Isa. 53:10-11).

Jesus went to the cross the next day knowing that His death would secure the salvation of all whom God had given Him (Jn. 17:2681112). He had the satisfaction that night of knowing that His substitutionary death would secure our salvation.

Jesus, as our Sovereign Savior, has authority over all mankind to give salvation to all whom God has given Him. Thank God, because we were dead in our trespasses and sins and unable to come to Christ unless He first gives eternal life to us (Eph. 2:1-5). If the Holy Spirit is pleading with you, please respond to Him now and receive God’s free gift of eternal life. This is the very evidence you are longing for because of His dealings with you. He raises the spiritually dead and gives life.

It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. He did not have to save anyone. It is His sovereign grace that reaches down to us and draws us to Himself. Will you not respond to His pleading even now? He has the authority and power to break our rebellious will, and quicken our dead spirit so that we will respond to Him in faith.

Jesus Christ gives eternal life to everyone the Father has given Him. He is just in following His eternal plan of redemption whether you and I agree or not. He is the Sovereign King. He shows mercy to whom He will. God is showing mercy to you now. Will you respond to His pleas?

“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, who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:12-13).

How do you know you are one of the elect of God? Have you believed on Jesus?

Selah!

SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

But God has Seen Your

In fact, if the God of my father had not been on my side the God of Abraham and the fearsome God of Isaac, you would have sent me away empty-handed. But God has seen your abuse and my hard work. That is why he appeared to you last night and rebuked you!” Genesis 31:42 The Holy Bible ,The New Living Translation

Sometimes we all get shafted at a job or in a transaction.

Welcome to life.

We who belong to Jehovah however, have a mediator who will always send warnings to the abuser.

If they refuse to obey the warnings the strong hand of the Lord will punish them.

Now we may not get what we are owed but alt least we have satisfaction in knowing the guilty will not go unpunished.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Hashopet (Judges 11:27 The LORD the Judge ) for blessing me with Your Divine judgment that no one can escape. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge, Jesus Christ. Amen

SELAH!

SELAH means to pause and reflect- just think of that!

Are You the Christ, the Son of God?

 At the Jewish trial of Jesus, the high priest Caiaphas found himself in a dilemma. He was losing his case before the Roman governor Pilate. The evidence did not add up. The false witnesses did not agree with one another (Mark 14:59Matt. 26:59-62).

The star witness did not show. According to Jewish law, Judas who arranged for the arrest of the offender had to be the person to make the formal legal accusation. Because Judas realized he had betrayed innocent blood he did not arrive at the hastily arranged trials and the Sanhedrin lost valuable time trying to come up with witnesses to sustain their accusations. By not being at the trial Judas was actually testifying the opposite that Jesus was innocent.

Pilate, knowing Jesus was innocent tried to set Him free.

Jesus had remained silent before His accusers, and this astonished Pilate, and frustrated the high priest.

Suddenly in desperation Caiaphas turned on Jesus and demanded, “I charge You under oath by the living God that You tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God” (Matthew 26:63).

The form of the question put to Jesus was brilliant. If Caiaphas had asked if Jesus were the Messiah, it would not have been a capital offense.

Furthermore, concerning the question of being the Son of God Jesus earlier had quoted Psalm 82:6, “You are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High.” In the context God was calling the Jewish judges “gods,” therefore they could not accuse Him of blasphemy for calling Himself God’s Son. God was not speaking of a divine nature in man when He called them “gods” (Ex. 21:622:8). Moreover, they called themselves “gods” because they were created in the image and likeness of God, and were His representatives. The point Jesus was making was if God calls human judges “gods” then why should they stone Him? He proved to the Jews that when He calls Himself the Son of God, He did not blaspheme God (Jn. 10:34-36). His whole life is done in the perfect will of the Father. Jesus uses the Psalm to contrast His divine sonship, prior to time, with theirs which began only in the present time.

However, the high priest so phrased his calculating question in such a way that He would have to respond to it. “I adjure You by the living God,” he asked Jesus, “that you tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God.”

How did he know to ask that question? Judas had instructed him.

Now if Jesus answered, “Yes” to the statement it would be blasphemy to His accusers.

Jesus spoke up for the first time in the proceedings saying, “You have said it yourself” (Matt. 26:64). This is an affirmative reply in the original language. “Yes, it is as you say,” Jesus replied (NIV). “Plainly, I am” (Mk. 14:62).

Then Jesus quoted the Old Testament prophet Daniel to give evidence to the declaration. “You have said it yourself; nevertheless I tell you, hereafter you shall see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming on the clouds of heavens” (Matt. 26:64).

Jesus clarified for His judges the kind of Messiah and Son of God He was by quoting Daniel 7:13-14. “I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, and He came up to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him. And to Him was given dominion, glory and a kingdom that all the peoples, nations and men of every language might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed.”

Caiaphas got more than he wanted. He got a conviction from the lips of the accused, but he also got the powerful evidence that will one day convict Him before God’s great throne of justice. The day will come when Jesus will be the Judge of Caiaphas.

Jesus quoted a passage that will be fulfilled at His Second Coming (Matt. 24:3025:31Rev. 11:15Psa. 2:6-9Phil. 2:11). The Son of Man will establish “an everlasting dominion.” His kingdom will never be conquered and will never come to an end. He will reign as King of kings and Lord of lords for all eternity (Matt. 24:30Mk. 13:2614:62Lk. 21:27Rev. 1:71314:14).

“The high priest tore his clothes and said, ‘He has spoken blasphemy! Why do we need any more witnesses? Look, now you have heard the blasphemy. What do you think?’ ‘He is worthy of death,’ they answered” (Matt. 26:65-55).

The judges came to the right conclusion, but the wrong judgment. According to the testimony of the Jewish Scriptures Jesus is “the Messiah, the Son of God.” But the judges refused to personally believe the evidence before them. They remained in their stubborn, willful unbelief. They were blind spiritually and dead in their trespasses and sins. A dark veil remained over their minds.

Jesus is the only legitimate Jewish Messiah. He is the King of righteousness (Isa. 32:1-10Jer. 23:5-830:8-933:14-18); the Divine servant of Yahweh (Isa. 52:13-15); born of a virgin (Isa. 7:14Lk. 1:26-30Matt. 1:24-25); in the town of Bethlehem (Micah 5:2Lk. 2:1-7); from the royal line of King David (2 Sam. 7:12-16Isa. 11:1-23Matt. 1:1-16Lk. 3:23-37); performed the works of righteousness (Isa. 61:1-2Lk. 4:16-21Matt. 11:1-6); the coming Messiah Prince (Dan. 2, 7, 9, 12); entered Jerusalem as a king (Zech. 9:9Matt. 21:1-11); betrayed by a friend (Psa. 41:9Matt. 26:14-1527:3-8); the precious fountain opened (Zech. 13:1-7); the Messenger of the Covenant (Mal. 3:1); the Sun of Righteousness (Mal. 4:1), etc.

Jesus Christ is the only unique Son of God (Psa. 2:7Isa. 9:67:14John 3:16). He is God with us (Isa. 7:14John 1:1418Lk. 1:35Rev. 21:3John 20:31). He is the child with many names (Isa. 9:1-6), and our blessed hope (11:1-12).

“Why do we need any more witnesses? . . . What do you think?” We, too, are in the same position as Caiaphas and his friends. What will you decide to do with Jesus based upon the facts from God’s Word? Just like Caiaphas your decision will determine your eternal destiny.

For a more detailed study of these great evidences in Scriptures, please go to our studies on Christ in the Old TestamentSelah!
