“My hand is here… as it has always been

throughout time’s existence,” whispered

the voice… to those still enough to listen.

“A hand to nurture, to help, to assist in

every way, even to provide for you… as

you would allow Me to, for I have held

My hand out to you… though you have

chosen not to take it, and one day soon

this chance will be taken from you.”

The man felt something… something strong

enough to linger, as if the feeling itself could

lift him up and he let it pass by… but it would

gnaw at his heart and an ache did develop, one

to tell him on his path by whisper, something he

would strain to hear his whole life… especially

those moments he found the stillness he needed,

the times he did slow down long enough to be

able to hear what he would never be able to

forget… the voice of God, the voice that forever

rang in his ears and continually pulled at his heart,

the tugging of a rugged cross to hang on eternity.

[Don’t be a Scrooge with your own life in the balance… act now to secure the eternal life God paid for. You have but to claim it as yours (not related to ‘the name it and claim it Ministries’- a heresy… God is not a genie) for God shed His blood for YOU!]

Psalm 10:2 KJV The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.

Remember, the devil is God's devil... not yours to control.

“A Bible Study for Dec. 19th, 2014 [for Christmas]… We are not to fear”©

Tags

, , , , ,

This Christmas… may you come to the realization we are not to have fear but to have joy! Three times angels told people not to fear: working people (Shepherds… considered the lowest social strata there was), Mary and then Joseph in a dream. The difference between these three times was the heavenly Host of angels was also seen by the Shepherds. Truly, when an angel, God’s messenger and Herald, is gathered with more than one of his kind is when all mankind should understand this as being a monumental event in human history- it was when the first time Immanuel (the Messiah), God with us, came to Earth to life among us. The biggest reason to cause fear was seeing the angels (here and near- present) to begin with. When something happens and it is not normal, being an every day occurrence, to our routine… it can be shocking- so shocking as to cause mortals to fear.

Definitions have not changed… today, see below.

Fear: an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.

See what is coming from the Bible, and (primarily the Jewish culture) what could have been found in its extremes here.

When the angel made his proclamation. as a Herald for his King, it is recorded in Luke below. Not only did this location come through the lineage of David but it was a fulfilling of the prophetic word (the promise of God) this would come to pass. Bethlehem was also known as ‘the house of bread.’

Luke 2:10-11 KJV

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

Luke 2:13-18 (King James Version)

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. 15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. 16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. 17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. 18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

Isaiah 40:9 KJV

O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!

Psalm 112:7 KJV

He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.

Psalm 56:11 KJV In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

1 Peter 3:14 KJV But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;

John 14:27 KJV Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

There was a man named Simeon, promised by the Holy Spirit he would not die until he had seen the Messiah, and his words found below…

Luke 2:29-35 (King James Version)

29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: 30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, 31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; 32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel. 33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him. 34 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; 35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.

Have you not ‘Joy’… as it should be known by those who might lay themselves to the claim they are christian? True ‘Joy’ comes from sure belief in Jesus Christ as our Savior… our Messiah… our God.

Luke 15:7 KJV

I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

Of the condition fitting all men, being either of the lowest class (as the Shepherds were considered to be) or of the noble class (these are embodied by the worship of the wisemen… bearing gifts), where do ‘YOU’ fit in? After all… Jesus came as the Savior for the world but He came to look for us all individually. For us to realize we have a personal God in Jesus, to know He knows our name.

John 10:3 KJV To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

1 Peter 4:14 KJV If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

Isaiah 66:5 KJV Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name‘s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.

What have we to fear if we are known by the God that created heaven and Earth… the vastness of the universe and it moves to the regularity of that which it was designed to do. The Christmas Story is to tell mankind the infinite came to be among the finite (us), to live and die for the sins we have- and then to rise and show us what hope we have in Him. This is an eternal hope… a hope that is not prevented by death or consumed by the grave. Life does continue… will you come to His belief willingly or throw the gift away? I pray you will consider it worthy… worth what little effort you might do (knowing the debt can never be paid… it is already at great cost) is done from the love He gives us to be our example to the world. Merry Christmas! (D.V.)

Your Brother in Christ Jesus,

Russ

P.S. For this REASON has this message been told… Maranatha!

Colossians 1:10-22 (King James Version)

10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven. 21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled 22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

When we can go beyond the boundaries of

thought to actions taken in this life…

to measures shared which uplift and gain

support to enable without due strife,

this is where we can can be true to ourselves

and to our God above…

for there is nothing in this life more valuable

than to look in eyes that love.

“This above all: to thine own self be true,

And it must follow, as the night the day,

Thou canst not then be false to any man.

Farewell, my blessing season this in thee!”

To guileless feeding on the word by the sense of their privileges as new-born babes, living stones in the spiritual temple built on Christ the chief corner-stone, and royal priests, in contrast to their former state: also to abstinence from fleshly lusts, and to walk worthily in all relations of life, so that the world without which opposes them may be constrained to glorify God in seeing their good works.

There are two Greek words for “temple”; hieron (the sacred place), the whole building, including.the courts wherein the sacrifice was killed; and naos (the dwelling, namely, of God), the inner shrine wherein God peculiarly manifested Himself, and where, in the holiest place, the blood of the slain sacrifice was presented before Him. All believers alike, and not merely ministers, are now the dwelling of God (and are called the “naos,Greek, not the hieron) and priests unto God ( Revelation 1:6 ).

“Another viewpoint to what we might consider Christmas”©

Tags

, ,

For some time now I have been a big fan of the history, and accuracy, of the Bible- as it has been canonized. Having been inspired by the Spirit of God, the Bible recounts many stories (although some might consider them just stories) and I firmly believe them to be more than (just) stories but accounts of Jewish History and things God wants us to know- and believe to be true. It is because of the historical aspect to the information provided us in the Bible… we should strive to gain from comparative texts and information to view the truth and authenticity of what it contains. Here is what I’m saying, there is a time when science, in this case… Archaeology, can solidify our beliefs- as we have come to know them from the word of God in the Bible. We should also become aware, to open eyes, there might be times when one from within those constructs of thought might not see it as we might but this does not mean we should not see what is expressed- knowing there might still be some value to what is shared and coming from this discipline (historically).

To this end, to gain a broader perspective to what we might think we already know, I share a link and another ‘free eBook,’ available through the Biblical Archaeology Society (BAS), entitled,”The First Christmas: The Story of Jesus’ Birth in History and Tradition.” Please keep in mind… this is coming from a different perspective than the one you might have conceived… one you have come to (think you) know… one that has been commonly considered to be a part of the big picture already- our ‘warm fuzzy view’ we hold to. This is where history comes alive… and where Archaeology can shed true light on something we thought we were looking at in the light of our own awareness.

“A Bible Study for Dec. 7th, 2014… The spirit of truth and the spirit of error”©

If there is but one thing man should know about God it is this,”God is love.” The Bible teaches this truth, God is the embodiment of love… and love is to be seen by those professing to know love- especially to and for those from within the body of Christ. The Bible goes one step further, according to the teaching of Jesus Himself… to love your enemies. Did you know this is a directive from God Himself… and should be the viewpoint of all christians from the start of the New Testament forward- to extend to the very time we live in today!

Luke 6:35 KJV But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

The day is at hand to stand firm in our faith, knowing what is told us by the world is found to be in error, containing the spirit of error, and we are to become more aware to God’s truth in love. There is the spirit of truth and the spirit of error… as told us in the Bible, see below…

John 14:17 KJV Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

2 Thessalonians 2:13 KJV But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

1 John 4:6 KJV We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

The spirit of error is when one refuses to acknowledge Jesus is the Son of God, incarnate, the living God come in the flesh. The scripture below is where ‘true discernment’ should begin to become forefront in our minds, renewed in God’s truth is the one which is chosen.

1 John 4:2-21 (King James Version)

2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. 7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13 Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 19 We love him, because he first loved us. 20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 21 And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.

What many have failed to understand about being chosen, since God is omniscient… and knows what will happen before it does, God knows who will make the choice, themselves, to follow Him. This does not mean the choice is not ours to make, it still is, but that God knows who will come to believe in His Son. The choice to believe… leaves us to be led to God by reason, the reason is the spirit of God convicting us of God’s truth- seeing what God did for us before we chose to love Him for who He is.

John 3:16 KJV For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

The abstract below comes from this link. This also openly declares before our belief in Him… it is God that loved us. God chose to love us! Love is then more than feelings… but the feelings should come after the choice has been made, for man/woman, as it is an outcome of our choice to love and an increase to magnify the love we say we know.

[Jesus Christ came to save us by pardoning us, that we might not die by the sentence of the law. Here is gospel, good news indeed. Here is God’s love in giving his Son for the world. God so loved the world; so really, so richly. Behold and wonder, that the great God should love such a worthless world! Here, also, is the great gospel duty, to believe in Jesus Christ. God having given him to be our Prophet, Priest, and King, we must give up ourselves to be ruled, and taught, and saved by him. And here is the great gospel benefit, that whoever believes in Christ, shall not perish, but shall have everlasting life. God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, and so saving it. It could not be saved, but through him; there is no salvation in any other. From all this is shown the happiness of true believers; he that believeth in Christ is not condemned. Though he has been a great sinner, yet he is not dealt with according to what his sins deserve. How great is the sin of unbelievers! God sent One to save us, that was dearest to himself; and shall he not be dearest to us? How great is the misery of unbelievers! they are condemned already; which speaks a certain condemnation; a present condemnation. The wrath of God now fastens upon them; and their own hearts condemn them. There is also a condemnation grounded on their former guilt; they are open to the law for all their sins; because they are not by faith interested in the gospel pardon. Unbelief is a sin against the remedy. It springs from the enmity of the heart of man to God, from love of sin in some form.]

We must make the personal choice to believe in Jesus, as the Son of God… and being God, God come to save the world from an eternity in hell. Can we not understand just how severe this is, an eternity in hell… being apart from love and God Himself, for Jesus came in the flesh to die as a man (living just like us) and rise as the God He has always been.

John 1:1 KJV In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Jesus had two natures, one for the humanity He assumed to die as the divine Passover lamb… and show us His divine nature- the nature of immortality… the nature of love itself as our God.

John 15:13 KJV Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

John 16:27 KJV For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

Isaiah 32:6 KJV For the vile person will speak villainy, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

James 5:20 KJV Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

Since it is only God’s love that can save man… it is only man’s belief in God that God is concerned with- that which is found in belief of love itself. Do you love God? I pray you will come to. Merry Christmas, 2014! (D.V.)

Your Brother in Christ Jesus,

Russ

P.S. Please pray for the persecuted church around the world… and learn which bread we need most in our lives, the bread of love (the word of love in the Bible-the flesh we can digest) or not! This is what even some of the disciples of Jesus did not understand when Jesus said, recorded in John 6:51, “I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”

Jeremiah 15:16 KJV Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.

Which bread do your hands knead, life or death?

Which bread do your hands knead, life or death?

Revelation 20:4 KJV And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Gain no footing on what you are told…

what you heard or think is so,

gain sure footing on the truth in God’s

word, pass thought to where you know,

You must know that you know that you

know the truth, not just words to hear,

place your mind… your heart and your

soul on that which is good for the ear,

LOVE… love is the thing we must see…

must feel… must know is so real,

it doesn’t come to us when we say we

know love but it’s subject to what we’d feel,

to just feel love and not know love or to

speak love and not show it a farce,

this is much to important a thing, we must

decide to love or it’s meaning we parse,

before I came to know love myself is

when just feelings reigned as its tool

but love expounds on the differences we

have to desire life found as the rule.

1 John 4:1 KJV Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

The abstract below comes from… http://www.biblestudytools.com/1-john/4-1-compare.html

[The sum of revealed religion is in the doctrine concerning Christ, his person and office. The false teachers spake of the world according to its maxims and tastes, so as not to offend carnal men. The world approved them, they made rapid progress, and had many followers such as themselves; the world will love its own, and its own will love it. The true doctrine as to the Savior’s person, as leading men from the world to God, is a mark of the spirit of truth in opposition to the spirit of error. The more pure and holy any doctrine is, the more likely to be of God; nor can we by any other rules try the spirits whether they are of God or not.]

[Please know I’ll be working on a Bible Study with this same POV (Point Of View)… to encourage and promote a fulness of understanding- to encourage one to reason… why God gave us all a brain to use (to REASON with) and not simply a place to put a hat.]

for love is the greatest test we can ever

Job 33:4 KJV The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.

Job 33:22 KJV Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.

The “messenger” of good is antithetical to the “destroyers” ( Job 33:23 ). The Holy Ghost has suggested language which receives its full realization only in the “eternal redemption found” by God in the price paid by Jesus Christ for it; that is, His blood and meritorious intercession ( Hebrews 9:12 ). “Obtained,” literally, “found”; implying the earnest zeal, wisdom, and faithfulness of the finder, and the newness and joyousness of the finding. Jesus Christ could not but have found it, but still His seeking it was needed ( Luke 15:8 ). God the Father, is the Finder ( Psalms 89:19 ). Jesus Christ the Redeemer, to whom He saith, Redeem (so Hebrew) him from going,( 2 Corinthians 5:19 ).

Job 33:28 KJV He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.

“In truth… to know Him”©

Tags

, ,

Has not God made a way for you…

to reach out to Him and hold on?

It is not true He has left us… alone,

as if He has departed us and gone.

How much easier for us is it than to

believe the words and deeds so done?

He is the only God to reach out to us…

to live as we do and die to leave not one,

not one of us has to be forced to come

and believe, He wants this to be willingly,

to give us the chance to use our voice

and find Him, in truth, to know Him lovingly,

all He really wants is for us to seek Him

out… to realize we honestly have this need…

there is not a day we don’t so don’t let

it come to the point you must plead,

the heavens move to His direction and

the movement is perfect to behold…

there is purpose to you, to acclaim His

glory, His majesty to benefit those told.

To know God is to speak of God, to give glory to His majesty… over the creations He has made, and to proclaim to all mankind this great truth. God alone is worthy of our praise, our attention and our time… for to not give Him the acclaim He deserves is to deny Him what is His. Our tongues were made to give Him His praise. Our hands were made to serve Him… and our lives were given us to see where our life came from. To give back to God, with a loving heart, as He has shown us what love is willing to do for each of us. It is His death, as a man, that gains us the ability to accept from Him His deity as our God… the very one that conquered death, Jesus Christ, and offers us the same if we but believe on Him.

Exodus 4:5 KJV That they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared unto thee.

1 John 5:13 KJV These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
