John 14:1-3

King James Version

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Psalm 23
A Psalm of David.
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want;
he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters;
he restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies; thou anointest my head with oil, my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.



Matthew 17:1-13

New International Version (NIV)


The Transfiguration

17 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. 3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.

4 Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”

5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!”

6 When the disciples heard this, they fell facedown to the ground, terrified. 7 But Jesus came and touched them. “Get up,” he said. “Don’t be afraid.” 8 When they looked up, they saw no one except Jesus.

9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus instructed them, “Don’t tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.”

10 The disciples asked him, “Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?”

11 Jesus replied, “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things. 12 But I tell you, Elijah has already come, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him everything they wished. In the same way the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands.” 13 Then the disciples understood that he was talking to them about John the Baptist.

The Flight to Egypt
Matthew 2:13

13 Now when they had departed, behold, x an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, "Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you, for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him." 14 And he rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed to Egypt 15 and remained there until the death of Herod. y This was to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet, z "Out of Egypt I called my son."

I'M HERE....with a little note

The Pilgrims weren't the first to give thanks with a meal. "The meat of their fellowship offering of thanksgiving must be eaten on the day it is offered; they must leave none of it till morning (Leviticus 7:15)." A fellowship offering was a voluntary offering. When offered for the purpose of thanksgiving, it included not only an animal sacrifice but various kinds of bread to be shared by the Lord, the priests and the offerer. The ancient Israelite was free at any time to thank God for His goodness. "Let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name (Hebrews 13:15)."

We grow and learn trough God some sins are so deep routed it takes a strong hand to get them out Like prejudice none forgiveness hate and strong held beliefs from our past all of these we have to get out of us and learn Gods way love of others We learn the love of money power and objects can be to important to us God hates other Gods We learn moral behavior and have to step away from things that are distasteful in Gods eyes This takes examination off ourselves and time

evening prayer from the Lord...

"O Lord, my heart is not proud, nor are my eyes haughty; I busy not myself with great things too sublime for me. Nay rather, I have stilled and quieted my soul like a weaned child. Like a weaned child on its mother's lap, so is my soul within me." (Psalm 131)

"The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom should I fear? The Lord is my life's refuge, of whom should I be afraid? One thing I ask of the Lord; this I seek: To dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life." (Psalm 27)
Amen

Matthew 4:19
English Standard Version (ESV)
And Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”[a]
Footnotes:
Matthew 4:19 The Greek word anthropoi refers here to both men and women.
Whatever Jesus has called us to be about, He uses our "expertise" to accomplish His work when we as men and women are willing to be fully His.

Romans 12

King James Version (KJV)


12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Yes, Psalms for praise, thanksgiving and life realities....Proverbs for getting back on track...the histories for learning life lessons and the prophets for listening to GOD. GOD's wonderful Bible full of love letters to us is always challenging!!

NELLIEH1, I agree with you both Old & New Testaments are very important for our understanding of God's ways. The Old Testament is leading up to the birth of Jesus Christ, and laying the foundation. I love the book of Proverbs if it was read one chapter a day as part of a daily routine people would have most of life lessons.

Proverbs 16:3,7,9,
Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. 7) When a man''s ways are pleasing to the Lord, he makes even his enemies live at peace with him. 9) In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.
Proverbs 16: 3,7,9,

I like reading Proverbs with breakfast. Proverbs has 31 chapters one chapters a day. Then start over. My life lesson.

God be with in all you do,
Sister in Christ , Grammytobin emoticon

When you have a problem, drop to your knee. God will guided you though.

I love the way Jesus uses the Hebrew scriptures of what we Gentiles call the OT and reveals new things to us! Both testaments are very important for our understanding of GOD and His ways.

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." - Colossians 3:23
"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to GOD the Father through Him." Colossians 3:17

The new testament teaches us much So much for us the gentiles We are a new branch on the tree of life Read and live in the word and light In part of the bible he talks to the ones of old In part he talks to all part tells us whot happened Part whot will happen The whole is one from God

Psalm 119:89-96
For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.
Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.
They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are thy servants.
Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.
I will never forget thy precepts; for with them thou hast quickened me.
I am thine save me; for I have sought thy precepts.
The wicked have waited for me to destroy me; but I will consider thy testimonies.
I have seen an end of all perfection: But thy commandment is exceeding broad.

Philippians 2:13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

God is the one who gives us the desire to want to do His will and then He is the one who empowers us to do it! It's all God! He has provided our righteousness through His work on the cross and then He fills us with His Spirit to empower us to live righteously!

Praise the Lord! To God be the glory! Great things He hath done!

Yes, indeed, Avanell, it is the two held taut: saint and sinner! Dying to sin,self and satan, we rise into the life of righteousness GOD has given to us...both by His Holy Spirit. Holiness is His life in us, setting us free and apart unto resurrection living day-by-day. What is so amazing is that GOD continually initiates all that work in us and then enables us to walk it out with fear and trembling, so that in our sanctification, our sinful nature is not totally forgotten (Romans 7). For me the two are necessary, in my own thinking/believing, so that hardness of heart does not subtly sneak in, under the guise of my doing this identification and dying, that are so vital to true life in the Spirit.

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." - Colossians 3:23

As we die to self each day we should be growing in understanding and applying His righteousness to our lives. Paul did not address the churches in his New Testament writings as "to all the sinners in Christ Jesus". He addressed his writings to the "saints in Christ Jesus". While it is true that as we continue to live in this earthly body there are constant temptations to sin, when we learn to die to self we should be living for Christ in the power of His resurrection and living out the righteous living of saints, or as the Greek word defines the word as "holy ones". We are not "holy" by our own works of righteousness, but through the work of Christ Jesus on the cross. When we identify with His sufferings by dying to our fleshly desires we come into a greater understanding of the power of the resurrection that gives us great strength, might and ability to live victoriously over the desires of our sinful nature.

How true that we continue to be sinners in attitudes, thoughts, words and deeds even after he has chosen, redeemed and delivered us. But GOD takes us out of that miry pit of ourselves to set us on the Rock of Himself over and over. We just must constantly count ourselves dead to sin and alive to Him in Christ Jesus, so that the body of wickedness within us can be done away with. It is good to ask myself...When was the last time I wept over the ways I am sinning? Then I can see how I drive those nails into our Lord.

Yes, Sandra, you are right! He says to us, "Go and sin no more." and then He enables us by His Spirit and Word to walk in His righteousness that is already imparted (as in revealed) and imputed (ascribed to us) by Him in His death and resurrection! You are right, we must hear and live His words...He is the Word to each of us! HalleluJAH!
"Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with Him...The death He died, he died to sin, once for all, but the life He lives, He lives to GOD. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin and alive to GOD in Christ Jesus." - Romans 6:8,10,11

Yes, Avanell, You are so right that once GOD has done the work of rebirthing us by Christ's death and resurrection, He imparts/imputes His righteousness to/into us. His Holy Spirit indwells us to empower us to live in Him and His love permeates our beings! How amazing is our GOD who never stops His agape enabling!
Acts 1:8a
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses...
So now we go forth, not in ourselves, but in Him. What a humbling privilege has been bestowed on each of us to use the gifts He has given to share with folks around us the love of Christ!

Nellie, I agree His coming is soon! I think we can all look at our world's happenings and see Bible prophecy being fulfilled before our very eyes. Matthew 21:28 "Now when these things begin to happen look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near."

Our righteousness does not come through the works of the law, but from what Jesus did to fulfill the law. We who are born again are "in Him" and His righteousness becomes ours through the redemption that he purchased for us. The works that we do and our keeping the commandments arises from the love that we have for God and our service to Him.

Thanks, ladies, for your comments!

Have just been pondering these two verses...oh soon and very soon!!

Daniel 7:13-14
"In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into His presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and His kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." - Colossians 3:23

Thank you, Avanell, too!
I keep thinking about "How well do we/I know HIm?" 1 John 2:3 in the Amplified: And this is how we may discern [daily, by experience] that we are coming to know Him [to perceive, recognize, understand, and become better acquainted with Him]: if we keep (bear in mind, observe, practice) His teachings (precepts, commandments).
Whoa...that is a lot to process and appropriate within!! Thank You, Holy Spirit, for enabling us!!

Thanks for your prayer, too, Avanell. Excellent questions, Sandra. I believe that Jesus knows us thoroughly...every aspect..because He is God. You are so very right that the way to know Him is to continually allow HIm to use His words and His Spirit to lead and guide us in all the paths of life...day-by-precious-day we are given. He is indeed the Light of the world. Thanks!

Yes, it is, Nellie! Thanks for your comment as well as your prayer! As I go to minister to those who are in need through our altar services this morning I pray that I might have the compassion of Jesus to reach out to the lost and hurting! May I be able to identify with their pain and offer the love of God that sets people free from sin, sickness and oppression. I pray that the power of God will rest heavily on each that I minister to this morning and that they might feel His love!

Have a blessed Lord's Day, Team!

Thanks, Avanell, for the insight into fervent love! Yes, it is a constant challenge for us each day to love deeply in Christ everyone we meet, or with whom we live, move and have our being. LORD, please guide us and enable us this day to be your heart, hands and feet of compassionate love.

I was reading in 1 Peter 4 today and verse 8 in the Amplified Bible says: Above all things have intense and unfailing love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins [forgives and disregards the offenses of others].

Joyce Meyer says that the King James Version says that we are to have "fervent love" and the word for fervent in the Greek means "to be hot, to boil".

Wow, that's challenging, isn't it? We might have that fervent of a love for some, but can we say that we love like that for everyone who is in the body of Christ, to have intense and unfailing love for one another?

Amen, Avanell!

"Dear Friends, let us love one another for love comes from GOD. Everyone who loves has been born of GOD and knows GOD." - 1 John 4:7 I Corinthians 13: 4-8a reminds us: "Love is patient kind, not envious, not boastful, not proud, not rude, not self-seeking, not easily angered, keeps no record of wrongs, does not delight in evil, rejoices in the truth, always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres, never fails." In I Corinthians 14:1 we are exhorted to "follow the way of love." So we are back to GOD being love, initiating love in us, and then enabling us by His Spirit to truly love! To our LORD be the glory!!

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." - Colossians 3:23
"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to GOD the Father through Him." Colossians 3:17

Amen Nellie! You know that verse in 1 John 4:19 says that we love Him BECAUSE He first loved us. We love Him in response to His love for us. Without His love for us we would not be able to love Him or anyone else. He is love and Love came to live within us and that's why we have the ability to love.

Thank you for your comment!

Absolutely, Sandra. 1 Corinthians 13:13 And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

I learned something yesterday In the doors of old there were no eyes of a meddle in them A American invention so that we can love our money and possessions God never promised that for our Good beads we will get rich He promises us all we need peace grace and the means to help others in different ways Our rewards are in heaven not here on earth This place is only a stopping place to heaven Look at the life of the apostles not to get rich Gods ward is not a business o get rich put a church of all the people So many died so we can be saved Even to get the Bible for us to read Work for God not for our benefit All we need salvation grace peace and the love of God is all we need

Family, the Lord gave me a word for us this morning... whoever can receive it, receive it!
----------------------------------------
------------------------------

Matthew 6:34 KJV – Jesus said, Take no thought for the morrow. (Do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow.)

Take NO thought of fear.

Take NO thought of worry.

Take NO thought of lack.

Take NO thought of illness or disaster!

Take NO thought that does not line up with God’s Word!

When you hear a thought or a voice... discern WHO is speaking to you.

MY voice WILL NOT disagree with MY Word!

MY Word says you are healed by Jesus' stripes.

MY Word says I have a good plan for your life.

MY Word says I desire you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.
(Your soul will prosper to the degree that you give attention to MY WORD.)

Look it up! Isaiah 53:4-5 - Healed is past tense; by Jesus' stripes you WERE healed.

Look it up! Jeremiah 29:11 - MY plans are good.

Look it up! 3 John 1:2 – I, the Lord your God, desire you prosper & be in health.

Proverbs 4:20-22
“20 My child, pay attention to what I say.
Listen carefully to My Words.
21 Don’t lose sight of them.
Let them penetrate deep into your heart,
22 for they bring life to those who find them,
and healing (and health) to their whole body (being).”

Proverbs 22:17-21

“17 Listen (consent and submit) to the words of the wise,
and apply your mind to My knowledge;
18 For it will be pleasant if you keep them in your mind [believing them];
your lips will be accustomed to [confessing] them.
19 So that your trust (belief, reliance, support, and confidence) may be in the Lord,
I have made known these things to you today, even to you.
20 Have I not written to you [long ago] excellent things
in counsels and knowledge,
21 To make you know the certainty of the words of truth (what is right and true)…”

Exodus 15:26 “I am the Lord who heals you.”

Jeremiah 30:17 “For I WILL restore health to you, and I will heal your wounds, says the Lord…”

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

“3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as your soul keeps well and prospers.”

Deuteronomy 8:18 “But you shall [earnestly] remember the Lord your God, for it is He Who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.”

Malachi 3:6 “For I am the Lord, I change not.”

Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.”

Be blessed this week and remember that God is FOR you, not against you!

Today, I am sitting here amazed again at what our GOD tells us in Ephesians 1: 3 "Our GOD and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ!" We have been selected/picked out/chosen by Him to be His own. Now this was accomplished before the LORD even spoke, "Let there be light." ("ere the foundation of the world"). This love letter tells us that His purpose was that we all "be consecrated/set apart unto Him and blameless/above reproach in His sight". He is the One who does that in us!..."for it is GOD who works in us to will and to act according to His good purpose." (Philippians 2:13) What is so incredible is that He re-creates us into the image of Christ and we take the steps little by little to live His new life in us. And even all that He enables, so that it is nothing of us...all of Him, and yet we do it. The fact is that we are breathing human beings together on this earth; the Truth is we belong to and are in the family of the Sovereign of the universe!

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." - Colossians 3:23
"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to GOD the Father through Him." Colossians 3:17

Well said, Nellie! We all need reminders to practice what God says in His word! After all, mother was right, practice does make perfect. After practicing casting our cares pretty soon it will become more natural to leave those things with Him than it will be to worry over them!

Very timely word, Karen! We need to practice releasing our burdens to the Lord. There's too many times that we get back up from prayer after we say we've cast our burdens on Him and still feel weighed down by them. My Mom always told me that practice makes perfect! Let's practice casting our cares on Him today!

Friends, as I prayed this morning, I spent a longer time with the Lord. I felt burdened for a number of people and I asked the Lord for a word of encouragement to share with anyone who might need it, and He greatly indulged me with not only encouragement but with instruction!

This word is for whoever will receive it in its entirety or parts of it. It is long so I have only posted it on my website here:

Topic: Seek My Face. Take My Word.

How very blessed we each are to know that it is the LORD who continually gives us all we need for life and godliness! You, GOD, do supply all according to Your glorious riches in Christ Jesus. You, Sovereign Master, are continually able to make all grace abound to us. You have sealed us forever in Your promised Holy Spirit. To You alone be all the glory!

God bless you all! Just like you receive your salvation - the free gift of God through Christ - receive this word and receive all the Lord has for you. When you receive from the Lord, you can then go on and pass His love and blessings onto others.

While in prayer this morning, the Lord gave me a word for a number of people. The Lord brought this story in Scripture to my mind; in particular, these Scriptures:

Numbers 13:33 "There we saw the Nephilim [or giants], the sons of Anak, who come from the giants; and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."

Numbers 13:30 Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once and possess it; we are well able to conquer it.

Numbers 14:24 But My servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his descendants shall possess it.

Then I was given this and impressed that it was for a number of people:

You think you are little, that you are too small, or lacking, or that you don't know enough. I tell you to cast down those imaginations. I would have you to know there is no one small among My children. I call all to be My children, and I call all of My children to roles that I have planned and purposed for this lives. I have placed gifts in you, some of which are yet to be revealed. And there are more gifts available by My Spirit if you will receive them.

Those I call, I always equip. Be assured that even though you feel small and inadequate at times, I have equipped you. As you continue to seek My face, I will grow and mature you. Know that whatever I give you to do, you never do alone, for I am always with you.

You are precious and honored in My sight, and I love you, right now, exactly where you are. There is nothing you can do, no mistake you can make, that would ever cause you to lose My love, for I call you My own.

Be strong in Me and in the power of My might! I am faithful, and I will strengthen you and set you on a firm foundation and guard you from the evil one. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go!
