In Person

John 1:14 “The Word became a human being and, full of grace and truth, lived among us. We saw his glory, the glory which he received as the Father’s only Son.” (GNT).

If you have a good relationship with The Truth, you are righteous. If you have a right standing with God, you are righteous. Knowing the truth is not necessarily about being right and proving that others are wrong. You can know the truth and be wrong, but you still know the truth. Read the rest of this entry

The Exchange II

Ps. 126:1-2 (KJV) “When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.”

God is trading His beauty for our ashes and He is doing it in every area. God is giving us beauty for ashes, from sorrow to Joy. God is giving us His joy in the place of sorrow. Read the rest of this entry

The Exchange I

Job 42:5-6 “I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes. I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance.”

Sometimes, because we cannot see very far, we tend to argue with God. We look at our lives and we question God’s heart and His goodness. Why did You not do this and why did You not answer that prayer. Read the rest of this entry

Blazing Love

Zec. 2:5 (KJV) “For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.”

Yesterday, we established that ashes are proof of a negative progression. Wherever you see ashes, greatness was previously pre-destined, but the enemy has done this. Note that, fire only answers to fire. Fire does not answer to grammar. Read the rest of this entry

Beautiful

Isa. 62:3 (AMPC) “You shall also be [so beautiful and prosperous as to be thought of as] a crown of glory and honour in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem [exceedingly beautiful] in the hand of your God.”

Isa.61:2 He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies.” (emphasis added). The time for the Lord’s favour has come. Read the rest of this entry

Togetherness

Eph.4:3 “Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.” (emphasis added)

Note, we are not making an effort to create unity. Unity is created by the Spirit of God. But we are to make every effort to keep the unity that has been created by the Spirit of God. Read the rest of this entry

New Life Instructions III

Mark 2:22 “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the wine would burst the wineskins, and the wine and the skins would both be lost. New wine calls for new wineskins.” (emphasis added)

New life instructions are; Stop Telling Lies, Do Not Sin By Letting Your Anger Control You, Quit Stealing, Don’t Use Foul Or Abusive Language, And Get Rid Of All Bitterness, Rage, Anger, Harsh Words, And Slander. Read the rest of this entry

New Life Instructions II

Rom.12:2 “Don’t copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

True righteousness and holiness flow from a renewed mind and a renewed attitude by God’s Spirit. However, God gave us some clear pointers on how this new life should be. Read the rest of this entry

New Life Instructions I

Rom.12:2 “Don’t copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

True righteousness and holiness flow from a renewed mind and a renewed attitude by God’s Spirit. However, God gave us some clear pointers on how this new life should be. Which we have called New Life Instructions. Read the rest of this entry

On Purpose

Matt.13:33 “Jesus also used this illustration: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like the yeast a woman used in making bread. Even though she put only a little yeast in three measures of flour, it permeated every part of the dough.”

God chose Abraham because He knew Abraham will command his house after The Lord. While Lot was living with Abraham, Abraham probably taught and discipled him in the way of The Lord. Read the rest of this entry
