2 Corinthians. Chapter 1. Verse 2.
I think I shall be brief this morning.
2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. source
Merriam-Webster surprised me with its definition of Grace.
Unmerited divine assistance. Coming from GOD. etc.
But Peace? Not so good.
It doesn’t even attempt to define this Peace of verse 2. Perhaps because we cannot define GOD’s Peace, we can only experience His peace. Here check out M-W’s definition of Peace. HERE.
Now my note to myself on verse 2, Chapter 1. See if you can relate.
Is this verse asking me, do I?
Do I come (go) to people in and with the Grace and Peace of GOD who is our Father and with and in The LORD JESUS CHRIST?
Is this how I interact and react with people? And when I talk about one to another, do I?
Do I speak the Grace and Peace of GOD, my Father, over them or is it something else I speak?
I am mulling this over and as I do I see changes a-coming.
Philippians 4:7 (AMP) 7 And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours]. source
Beginning at 5:00 pm this afternoon all Alabamians are commanded (Yes. Commanded.) to wear a mask in public places.
I need to tell you, obviously. I am writing this post.
Please do not be deceived the Forcible wearing of masks has nothing to do with slowing the spread of COVID 19 and everything to do with advancing the rise of a one-world dictator.
Even so, People of GOD, particularly this person of GOD, cannot live in that mind-place of hate and enslavement. So, I am proposing this for myself and you are welcome to try it on for size.
Each time you put on a mandated mask be reminded that GOD gives you the grace to love Him and believe Him.
Strive to be reminded that this world is not your home and that JESUS is coming for His People.
Each and every time you strap on that tool of satan, breath a prayer asking The HOLY SPIRIT to gift you with the chance to share the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST with someone.
JESUS is our HOPE in this world speeding to the abyss of darkness.
Please be reminded that The One True GOD forces Himself on no one but His offer of salvation is open to anyone who will believe they have a need to be saved.
I have not the vocabulary to tell you how much I hate this COVID 19 satanic maneuver, even so, it is here and I must decide if I will live in the flesh or The SPIRIT.
If you are a follower of YESHUA, you have that same choice.
If you have not been born again and IF The HOLY SPIRIT of GOD is still speaking to you, I urge you to answer Him ‘Yes’ today. Behold Now is the day of Salvation.
2 Corinthians 6:2 (AMP) 2 For He says, “At the acceptable time (the time of grace) I listened to you, And I helped you on the day of salvation.” Behold, now is “the acceptable time,” behold, now is “the day of salvation”— source
Isaiah 55:6 (AMP) 6 Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call on Him [for salvation] while He is near. source
If you will, please share this post with others. I’d like to get the Word out there to people who need it.
