Spring Forward

Luke 14:25  (NKJV)
25 Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to themsource

This verse is speaking of Yeshua, of course.
Multitudes followed Him to hear Him preach. 

After Jesus’ resurrection, ascension, and Holy Spirit had come the Disciples preached.

Acts 2:41 (AMP) 
41 So then, those who accepted his message were baptized; and on that day about 3,000 souls were added [to the body of believers]. source

Acts 2:46-47 (NKJV) 
46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. source

Acts 4:4  (AMP) But many of those who heard the message [of salvation] believed [in Jesus and accepted Him as the Christ]. And the number of the men came to be about 5,000.  source

Spring forward from Century 1 to now the 21st Century – what happened? 
Multitudes followed Yeshua to hear what He would say.
Thousands upon thousands, even 3,000 in a day heard Peter preach and believed The Gospel. They got SAVED.

Where are the multitudes in the 21st Century being CHANGED by The GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST
What happened? 

Will you pray?
Will you pray according to Luke 10:2?

Luke 10:2  (AMP) 
He was saying to them, “The harvest is abundant [for there are many who need to hear the good news about salvation], but the workers [those available to proclaim the message of salvation] are few. Therefore, [prayerfully] ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest. source

Pray With Me

Father GOD, there is no one we can with full confidence believe other than You.
The world is filled with Liars and Opportunists – none of them can we safely trust.
It is hard to live in this world of Sin. There was a time when life here was more desirable but corruption is abounding and there is NO ONE on earth to save us.
There is None good, no not one You said and I believe You.
You said the death of your saints is precious in Your Sight. I understand that more and more now.
Yet I am still here as are many of Your Children and because we are, we are crying out to You for some early justice.
We understand and accept The Great White Throne is yet to be.
We understand the Bema is yet to be and we await those days, but for now, in the here and now, we petition You with all our hearts asking You to avenge us – we dare not do the avenging ourselves but ask that You please by Your Very Own Hand strike down long-standing evil in America and give us an extended space of grace with signs and wonders to deliver the Saving Gospel to the few it would seem who are interested in turning from death to LIFE.
I long to see You come and show us Your Kingdom on earth.
Satan and those who do his bidding have corrupted this place until it is barely inhabitable for Your Children.
It is only by Your grace that we can bear staying here. But since we are we desire to do some good and we desire to stand against and push back the darkness and the evil that is running rampant.
Please help us submit to You and resist the evil.
Please fortify us Holy Spirit. Fill us and engage us in the message of Salvation to every soul who desires to hear and be saved from the wrath that now is and is yet to come.
Amen and amen in the name of Adonai Yeshua.

Romans 3:10-18  (NKJV)  
10 As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one;
11 There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God.
12 They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one.”
13 “Their throat is an open tomb; With their tongues they have practiced deceit”; “The poison of asps is under their lips”;
14 “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.”
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways;
17 And the way of peace they have not known.”
18 “There 
is no fear of God before their eyes.”  source

Psalm 116:15  (AMP)
15 Precious [and of great consequence] in the sight of the Lord Is the death of His godly ones [so He watches over them].   source

Revelation 20:11-15

2 Corinthians 5:9-10

If You Will

Oh yes! This is good!

More 1 Timothy 2:1

First of all, then, I urge that petitions (specific requests), prayers, intercessions (prayers for others) and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all people,   source

Petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving.
Strong’s was helpful.

Petitions: Asking, begging, if you please, for such things as we need and lack.  If you will consider this with me, perhaps it is akin to when we sign a petition to support a change we believe needs to be. So, could it be when we petition GOD we are saying we are willing to work with You LORD for this change we are petitioning? This helps me. I hope it does you.

Prayers: That was easy. Addressing GOD. Talking, conversing with GOD. Speaking and listening to GOD; that’s prayer.

Intercessions: Now, this one! A falling in with
Is it just me or are you tracking this with me?

A coming together; to visit. A falling in with.
Could we consider that Intercession is a prayer that says, “Father, I’d like to visit with YOU about this matter for my sister, for my brother, for my friend, for a stranger I saw on the street?
This encourages me. I hope it does you too.

Thanksgiving: Giving thanks, mindful of favors, grateful, thankful
Just as we expected, right? Do you like: mindful of favors? Does that say to you as it does to me in prayer we can and should be mindful of the abundant favor GOD has lavished upon us? Me too!

Until next time ~ ~ ~

Disciple-ing

With whatever translation we connect, the message is clear. 

1 Thessalonians 5: (KJV) 17 Pray without ceasing. source

1 Thessalonians 5: (NLT)17 Never stop praying.  source

1 Thessalonians 5:(DLNT) 17 be praying unceasingly,  source

Constant, unceasing, never stop praying is The Father’s will for us and since it is His Will, He is making a way for us to obey.  I am looking forward to His disciple-ing me this year!
