The Great Commission: Hear and obey the words of Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20

      And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
      Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world, Amen
  KJV

A Matter Of The Heart: 1 Samuel 16:6-7

    As humans we look on the outward appearance of other people.  We tend to judge what we see, whether if they look strong or appear to be a good person from the clothes they wear or public display of good works to receive praise from men.  Truly, we cannot see the inner depths of man’s motive which come from the heart, but God does not see as man sees, as he looks at the heart.  Be careful not to judge someone based on their outward physical appearance, whether their stature or how they appear good from putting on a show to receive praise. 
     Pray in the Holy Spirit for wisdom, understanding, and sound judgment without judging someone.  1 Samuel 16:6-7 So it was, when they came, that he looked at Eliab and said, “Surely the Lord’s anointed is before Him.”  But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature because I have refused him.  For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”  Matthew 6:1-4 “Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them.  Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.  Therefore when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men.  Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.  But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.  NKJV

Take heart the words of Jesus: We are the salt of the earth: Matthew 5:13-16

   “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned?  It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled under-foot by men.  You are the light of the world.  A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.  Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.  NKJV

Unity In Christ: 1 Corinthians 1:3-10 and Ephesians 4:11-16

   Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.  I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: So that ye become behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.  God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.  Now I beseech you brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you: but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ; From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.  KJV

Receive Your Prophetic Word For Today

 

God’s not done with correcting and changing us who are His children: Philippians 1:3-11

      I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; just as it is right for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart, inasmuch as both in my chains and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers with me of grace.  For God is my witness, how greatly I long for you all with the affection of Jesus Christ.  And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.  

1 John 1:5- 2:2 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.  If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.  But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.  If we say that have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.  My little children, these things I write to you, that you may not sin.  And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.  And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world.  NKJ

In Awe of our God in Christ Jesus

      As I sit here and type these words I am in such awe of our God in Christ Jesus.  He is such an awesome and loving God and yet too holy to put up with sin.  Perfect He is in all His ways and thoughts.  The Lord is reminding my  heart, mind, and soul to be still in Him and ponder of His great mercy and love without taking for granted His grace of salvation.  We must remember to live for the One who died for us and is now raised from the dead ascended to heaven at the right hand of the Father.  He purges those who belong to Him and cut off those who do not, those who are preordained and chosen children of God.

Many say that there are no chosen children of God, the elect but the Bible says so and those who believe in His Word understand spiritually the Truth which means simply that Jesus did say to the twelve, did I not choose you and yet one of you is a devil?  Also preordained elect chosen children of God is this: God already knew in advance before He created each person who would believe and receive Him and who would not.  Each person has a purpose, the righteous for Him and the ungodly which are reserved to suffer which all will know of the Godhead one day for He will be exalted among the whole earth and yes exalted even among the heathen.  It is not about us, but only about God and He will be glorified.

The bottom line is this, either you believe the entire Holy Bible or you don’t believe God’s Word at all.  We cannot pick and choose what sounds good.  It is His Word and all about His Glory.  John 6:44&70 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.   Jesus answered them, Have I not chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?  John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.  Everyone has a purpose like it or not even the heathen are made for glory but to their shame as they see and know He is God in Proverbs 16:4 The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.   

The wicked will see Jesus and mourn in Revelation 1:7-8 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him, Even so, Amen.  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.  KJV

“Fear the Lord out of reverence for the one true living God” The Godhead

        Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  Fear the Lord our God, for He is the One true living God, three that testify to the truth of the Godhead regarding the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit which are not three gods, but three being  One God which is called the Godhead.  1 John 5:6-8 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood.  And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.  And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.  

Here is a warning from the Lord, those who have vain imaginations against the Lord, fear Him, for He is the true living Godhead.  Psalm 2 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.  Then shall they speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.  Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.  I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.  Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.  

Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.  Be wise now therefore, O ye kings; be instructed, ye judges of the earth.  Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.  Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little.  Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.  Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.  KJV
