Did you know?

Did you know Peter read Paul’s Epistles? 
I think he did.
2 Peter 3:16. 
Well, let’s start at verse 14 for the fun of it. 

14 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; 15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.  source 

And look at that Peter calls his readers, beloved. I remember in some recent studies I was comforted and encouraged at the depth (what I saw in the Text) of love Paul had for his people. And I think as I study Peter more I will find he had great love too. 

Our beloved brother Paul.
Wow.

According to the wisdom given to him, he wrote to you. 

And then verse 16. as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of things, . . .

Peter read Paul’s Epistles. 

I like that!

One more thing. Did you know the word PEACE appears 397 times in the NKJV? 

Heavenly Food

Ephesians 2

Read with me verses 1 – 9. The following is the New King James Version but at the link provided at the word source below, you have many translations at your disposal, if your own favorite is not close at hand.

Ephesians 2 New King James Version (NKJV)
1 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins,

in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,
among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
not of works, lest anyone should boast. source

Now, these 9 verses are so full of heavenly food I cannot dish it all up in this post, not even what I am seeing at this sitting which for sure is only scratching the surface.
First, I love that in verse one we are assured that GOD has made us ALIVE! We were DEAD in trespasses and sins but not anymore! That is all of us in covenant with JESUS. Tragically, all others are still at verse 2. And verse 2 describes people walking according to this world – it’s not a healthy walk. There’s a lot more to be said on that but not at the moment. 

Prince. That prince is satan. He’s the one ruling that stuff we snatch out of the air and act on it. Really. He is a prince and I say that in the most unbecoming way.  He has some clout, like it or not, enough that we must not take him lightly. But hey, he’s not KING and he’s not LORD! Aren’t you glad? Me too!
He is a spirit being. He operates in the supernatural and he operates in the sons and daughters of disobedience, who we used to be BEFORE the HOLY SPIRIT made us ALIVE.
What do sons and daughters of disobedience do?
They fulfil the desires of the flesh AND of the mind.  (Whatsoever a man thinks, that is who he is. Where is that Text found? Proverbs 23:7). This is why when GOD saved us He gave us the Mind of Christ.  So, if disobedient sons and daughters fulfil the desires of the flesh AND the mind? What do we do?

Verse 4 assures us that HE is rich in mercy, not piddling. HE does not run out of mercy when we mess up, which we do.  He has great love for us.  When we forget or disbelieve this one little verse, we get into so much grief, hurt and pain.

Again, He talks about bringing us to LIFE. HE says we are (legally) sitting in heaven with JESUS since HE made us alive. I say legally because, just look around and you know for sure we are not physically there today. But we will be! We have a binding covenant with GOD in JESUS.

And the verses come to this. GRACE. No amount of good deeds, no amount of turning over new leaves, repeatedly. No amount of nothing we can do will make us ALIVE. Only HE raises us from the DEAD. It’s HIS GIFT.

Have you received HIS GIFT?

Do you hear HIM offering this Gift to YOU today?

Are you accepting or rejecting?

I’m Here to publicly Repent

I loaded a couple of posts this morning to my Blog, Just Because, and I loaded them there because they didn’t contain any Scripture; an effort to keep politics separate.
I am hereby repenting of that. Christians keeping politics and Scripture separate is how we got in this mell of hess we are in.

So here are links to those posts and from henceforth I shall NOT be separating such posts. I shall get Father’s Scripture all up in my political business and efforts. 

Not This Time and Lost Me

Truthfully, keeping two Blogs is extra work.
I am not intending at this time to delete Just Because but that may come.
Why divide myself?
I am who I am.
And if you have any interest in what interests me, join me here at The White Stone.

There are no ads here at The White Stone because I pay a yearly fee for this blog to be ad-free.
I am not here to make money.
I am here to share with people I love and people I can learn to love. 🙂

As I said, if this interests you, Sign up for email delivery and never miss a post; nor spend your time searching Facebook to find my latest offering.

I hope this will prove to be an excellent move but even if it doesn’t  — I am who I am.
I am committed and determined to share the Truth and help as many people hear as will hear.

I hope you all are having a Sunday of peace and rest.

until It is Over

 
Father, JESUS came to destroy the works of darkness. That is what You said.
The Media in America, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, FOX, there may be others, all these media outlets distort the truth, or tell flat-out lies, cover-up, and conceal the truth and deliberately seek to emotionally cripple and paralyze people with fear.
Truly they are all workers of darkness, so I am asking You to destroy and bring down to naught these entities so they can no longer do what they are doing today. Please hear me, Father, and save this Nation that You put me in to live and share Your Gospel. Please destroy the works of darkness and open up ways to show people they need JESUS.  And, Father, I believe but YOU know for sure if there is voter fraud going on here in this 2020 election and if there is please wow the Church, wow the Lost with Your Intervention and expose every cheater and deal justly with each one I pray. Amen and amen.

Who will join me in this prayer?

Help

I hope this will help you as much as it is helping me.

This is what I am thinking in prayer.
Abba, are You working to save America?
Are You working as faithfully and diligently to save America as You did and do to save me?
Cause if You are I can rest. I can live in faith and not fear.

Are You as angry with the unrepentant sinners in America who seemingly are protected now by power and wealth as You were in Abraham’s day with Sodom and Gomorrah?
Because if You are I can rest. I can live in faith and not fear. I can be about the mission You have given me while I wait for You to deal justly with people in America who are unashamedly corrupt.  I can walk and work in faith as You deal justly with what is happening this very day in America. Voter Fraud and all. Pedophiles. Human trafficking. Murderers. On and on.

So, what do you all think?
Is GOD serious?
Is He working as hard to save America as He worked to save you?
Does He hate sin in America as much as He hated it in all the stories of the Bible that you have read?
Can we trust Him to deal justly in America today?

Justly
