Don’t be Ashamed

Luke 9:26

“For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.”

Isaiah 17 12:14

“Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.”

God’s idea of prosperity and ours are different. He rather us care about his commandments, and a simple honest life where doing unto others the way you would like to be treated is more important then stuff. Imagine the average house contents during Jesus’s time on the earth. Its time we put God first and care of others before pursuing more mammon.

The next time your thinking about going for a nice dinner out on the town, you know a place with steaks and such, why not stay at home and donate the money to a food bank, or better yet see if you can find some one in need.

May Jesus bless you.

Faith, Virtue, Knowledge, Temperance, Patience, godliness, Brotherly Kindness, Charity.

II Peter 1:1

“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

And beside this, giving all diligence,

add to your faith virtue;
and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance; and
to temperance patience; and
to patience godliness;
And to godliness brotherly kindness;
and to brotherly kindness charity.

For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

“Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.  And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first. And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me. And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.”

God cures. That’s instant not just healing that can take some time. He does it when and where and to who he pleases.

“Thus saith the Lord; Again there shall be heard in this place, which ye say shall be desolate without man and without beast, even in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem, that are desolate, without man, and without inhabitant, and without beast, The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the Lord of hosts: for the Lord is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord.

Sometimes the sacrifice of joy and praise is what the Lord God real wants.

For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Again in this place, which is desolate without man and without beast, and in all the cities thereof, shall be an habitation of shepherds causing their flocks to lie down. In the cities of the mountains, in the cities of the vale, and in the cities of the south, and in the land of Benjamin, and in the places about Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah, shall the flocks pass again under the hands of him that telleth them, saith the Lord. Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord”

Who is the branch of righteousness? I think anyone looking at this website knows.

“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.  But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him”

I pray an hope others do that I and others,may receive wisdom.

Deuteronomy 2:34

“Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at Jahaz. And the Lord our God delivered him before us; and we smote him, and his sons, and all his people.  And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain,”

The Amorites (Sihon) were one of the seven nations who were devoted to destruction, the measure of whose iniquity was now full, and therefore vengeance was taken. In Revelation there are 7 nations mentioned. All who join forces with the evil.

Those who work against God will know God one way or the other. Not sure why  got this but I know God sees everything and is merciful to those who seek and fear him.

Jeremiah 12:10

“Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. They have made it desolate, and being desolate it mourneth unto me; the whole land is made desolate, because no man layeth it to heart.”

Matthew 23:27

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.  Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.”

If the Holy Spirit has led you to understand that you need to search for the “Church that can withstand the gates of hell” Please come with me and let us find it or build it together. Though be prepared to do what Jesus Christ has said.

Bringing less of you and me and more of Jesus of Nazareth the Christ into the world.

Salvation is available to all, though it is not free, for crosses must be borne. The time is short. The need to start to walk in the Truth of the living God is near. For God will bring to pass all of his promises. Including his wrath.

It won’t be easy, but it will be cheerful and save you from the lake of fire.

May the Peace of Jesus Christ be with you.

“But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves: For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:”

Exodus 20:3

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”
