You Made All The

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13 The Holy Bible The New Century Version

You are not some coincidence nor accident.

Jehovah made you a treasure and if you allow Him to, He will make you into a masterpiece.

On the other hand when you murder ( abortion. Murder is the unnecessary taking of a life. What crime has that innocent child committed worthy of execution? ) an innocent child you are stirring up Jehovahs wrath upon you.

Of course if you repent, your sin will be forgiven.

Prayer: Oh please Jehovah Bara (The Lord Creator Isaiah 40:28 ) speak to the hearts of every woman that is considering having an abortion and instead give the baby up for adoption where a loving Christian couple would gladly accept it as their own. I implore in the name of He who made adoption into Your family possible, Jesus Christ. Amen

Seleh- stop and think about it.

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.

Give it to Him to Succeed.

Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this Psalm 37:5 New International Version

I have known for two years that God has called me to be a Christian writer.

One morning during morning prayers I was talking with God about it and mentioned how even though I have spent two years faithfully obeying His calling there has not been enough money to pay the monthly bills.

Here is how He answered my prayers:

One of the morning devotions sent to me email every morning had the above verse in it.

That afternoon while listening to an online sermon, the preacher mentioned that once we become Christians we are assigned a task by God that He has prepared for us to do.

That evening another preacher online quoted this verse: Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD. Proverbs 16:20 New International Version

Each time I felt God saying to me: You know what my plans are for you. As long as you follow my plans I will take care of you.

A feeling of calm reassurance came over me.

I do not expect to become a millionaire with the writings but have complete faith my needs are and will be taken care of by God.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for promising and fulfilling Your promise to me in a most wonderful and gracious way. I give thanks in the name of He who provides a way to Heaven, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ precious love bless you today and every day.

SELAH! Pause – reflect- just think of that!

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).

Jesus Called Into Existence a Community Of

“Jesus called into existence a community of disciples to follow him at extreme risk. A safe Christianity is not genuinely Christ-like. Christianity will always be counter-cultural, a protest culture. And this means that we will always dare to stand up for what we believe in, to commit ourselves to our beliefs in spite of the tension between being a believer and belonging to the secular culture.” Edward Farrell
