A Tuesday Morning Prayer and Message!

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Greetings Team Members! What a blessed day it was yesterday!

"Loving Father, Glorious God, Thank You for loving us and creating us, for revealing Yourself to us in such wonderful and awesome ways. We accept the fact that You yourself are God, it was you who made us and not we ourselves. Designers can create robots but only You can create designers. We can plant trees but only You can make them grow. May we use these marvelous bodies You have given us and the days You have ordained for us, to do you will and bless others. Wonderful are your Mighty Works and our souls know it very well. Thank You Father! Thank You Jesus! Thank You Holy Spirit! This we pray this morning in Jesus' precious name, Amen!"


2 Tim 3:16-17, reminds us that "All scripture is given by inspiriation of God", and is profitable for us to use it so we may be thoroughly equipped in righteousness unto every good works. We are told to study God's scripture "To show ourselves approved unto God, rightly dividing the Word of Truth" (2 Tim 2:15). We are reminded also in James 1:5-6, that if we lack wisdom, ask God for it, and ask in faith; (Why?) So we may discern good and evil (moral and Immoral issues in Life) (Heb 5:14). So learning to discern good and evil is about making PURITY a way of life. As we consider whether a specifiic act is pure or impure, God's scriptures help us to reach a proper conclusion. Let's give God all praise, glory and honor, for His Word and for Jesus who made it a reality. May God bless each of you today, In His Love, Vic.

    Amen! Everything we have is because of God. We cannot challenge his will, because he is the creator and the giver. We must follow in his footsteps.

A Monday Morning Prayer and Message!

Monday, November 15, 2010

GooooooooooooooooMorning Team Members! Had a wonderful weekend.

"Heavenly Father, Loving God, our hearts are not proud, nor our eyes haughty. Please forgive our foolishness when we are. Free us from ourselves and give us joy in serving you. Help us to subdue our pride. Enable us so we can be free from fretting and worrying and self-seeking, so we can be free to serve the God we love. This we pray in Jeus' name, Amen!"


Today we start a new study: "Biblical Principles For Examining Moral Issues".
How can we examine or determine what is moral and what is immoral? To this end we must go to the Bible, God's Holy Word and Standard of Autority, in order to find the answers to moral issues, so we can apply them to our life with understanding. What might be some priorities we should follow? How should we use influence, examples and temptations? What can we learn from Jesus' example and character? This is what we will be looking at starting tomorrow, God willing. See you tomorrow! May God bless and teach us from his word how to live morally and be pleasing in conduct. In His Love, Vic.

A Saturday Morning Prayer and Message!

Saturday, November 13, 2010

Greetings Team members! We have a bit of cool weather here today and it feels good!

"Heavenly father, Awesome God, if You kept a record of our sins, who could stand before you? NO ONE! Every evil thought, every evil word, every evil wrong action, every evil attitude would comdemn us. All our sins have been an affront of disobedience against You, our God. We seek pardon, your best attribute, and not your wrath. Help us to fear and respect You, your Name, your Laws and Commandments so we may receive mercy instead of justice. Thank you for your forgiveness and loving kindness and patience with us. Thank You for not remembering our sins when you forgive us. Enable us to living in surrender to You and Your Word. This we pray through Jesus' name, Amen!"


Having completed the study about The Law of Liberty, do you have any topic, or subject you would like to study next? E-mail me your suggestions and we'll schedule them. Thanks for being a great audience and your wonderful responses and comments. In His Lov, Vic.

A Friday Morning Prayer and Message!

Friday, November 12, 2010

Aloha Everyone! My heart rejoices by your comments and responses....PRAISE GOD!

" Merciful Father, Beloved God, you take our grief and turn it into joy. You bring us relief from our enemies; you turn our sorrows into joy; you turn our nights into days; and you turn our mornings into days of celebration. Yes, we often have to face the sorrows and griefs of life, but always you fill our hearts with your joy. We can celebrate the love, grace and mercy we recive daily from you. When we agonize, you comfort us; like farmers, we struggle daily with the weeds, pests, and obstacles of life that plague us daily, but in the end there is always the hope of the bountiful harvest that awaits us. Let us therefore rejoice and sing songs of gladness; let us share the happiness we receive in Christ Jesus with others. Let us take courage in the God that loves us and takes care of us. Let us give all glory and honor to our Beloved God who blesses us daily with blessings from heaven. This we ask and pray ain Jesus' name, Amen!"


How do we use this freedom we have been given by Christ Jesus? 1 Pet 2:16 teaches us to live as free men, but warns us not to use this freedom as a cover for evil. It encourages us to live as servants of God; to use this freedom to do good works that bring praise and glory to God who bestowed this freedom on us. Rev 1:5-6 reminds us that this freedom sets us free from our sins so we may return to God and follow the way He has set for us. It reminds us that we are freed from our sins only by the blood of Christ, our Lord. We have been set free to be citizens in the kingdom of God, and priest to serve God. I believed the Bible has answered the question: "Am I not Free?" Now you know as much as I do about the freedom we have in Christ Jesus. May heaven's blessings be bestowed upon each of you today. In His Love, Vic.

A Thursday Morning Prayer and Message!

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Goooooooooooooood Morning Everyone! Thanks again for your responses and comments on yesterday's prayer and messgae. Feel free to respond anytime.

"Heavenly Father, Holy God, give us the strength to be people of peace in a world of war and violence. At times, this world seem beyond repair, causing us to think, "There is nothing we can do". But this is not true. We have a You, a Loving and Almighty God, to whom we can pray and ask to intervene on our behalf. Let us call on You in our distress; Let us not lean upon our own understanding, but seek your help by faith and with trust. Let us give thanks to our Wonderful Loving God, where nothing is impossible for Him. Let us bring our every care, whether great or small...whatever troubles us; let us bring it all, the haunting fears, the namelesss dread, , because you know our hearts , and you will relieve and lift up our head. Father, we live among people who are contrary to your will. May our lives and examples point them to you. This we pray in Jesus' name, Amen!"


James 1:25 reveals to us what gives us this freedom. It says the "Perfect Law of Liberty" is what gives us this freedom. This Law is found only in Christ Jesus. It is the teachings of Christ. This Law does for us what no other law can do....it frees us from the principles of sin and death. How can we receive this Law? We receive it only by being in Christ, by looking and seeking it, by hearing and remebering it, by doing and obeying it. How do we exercise this law? We exercise it by the way we speak and act, as those who are being judged by the law that gives us this freedom and mercy, instead of justice and condemnation. May God bless each of you today with peace and love. In His Love, Vic.
