Come to Breakfast

I thought I’d remind you of something you likely already know but perhaps have not thought about in a while. 

The TEXT I’m offering here for you to read is John 21:1-14.

If you read the account or if you recall, this happening took place after Yeshua’s resurrection. And it is the third time He appeared to the Disciples after that most wonderful Sunday morning in all of history. 

Peter decided to go fishing and some of the guys decided to accompany him. They fished all night and caught nothing. Then morning came and Someone was on the beach. 
Verse 7 says John recognized the Someone on the Beach. He said, ” It is the LORD!” 
I think he recognized Him because when they cast the net at His command, they got a multitude of fish. 
That was not the first time He had given them those instructions. (Luke 5:4-7)

And now to the reminder, I want to give you for consideration today. 
When they got to the shore breakfast was cooking.
Bread and Fish. 

 Then, as soon as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread. source 

THE LORD HIMSELF was cooking breakfast for them. 

The BREAD of LIFE baked bread for them! 
Now just ponder on that. The resurrected GODMAN cooked breakfast for them. Not supernaturally but naturally. Campfire and all. 
But that’s not all. 

12 Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.” Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, “Who are You?”—knowing that it was the Lord. 
13 Jesus then came and took the bread and gave it to them, and likewise the fish. source

GOD Almighty cooked breakfast and served them!

What might He want to serve to YOU today? 
The question is, will you dine with Him

Dead or Alive?

Admittedly, it’s my opinion, an opinion born of observation. 

The Church (by that I mean people as a whole professing to be Christians) has forgotten we have a real enemy.
The church at large, for a way long time now, conducts business as though Satan is dead or at the most just a little cartoon character with neither power nor gumption to pay us any mind. 
How about this?

1 Peter 5:8  (NKJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. source

Or this one?

John 10:10  (NKJV) 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. source

And this one?

Job 2:7  (NKJV) So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord, and struck Job with painful boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head. source

Does this sound like someone we should just ignore, pretend he does not exist? 

Let’s look at another one. 

Mark 4:15  (NKJV) 15 And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts. source

Shall we ignore this? If we do, he is well at work just as described in Mark 4:15.

Am I suggesting we live in mortal fear of him? Hiding in our homes refusing to venture out, afraid to open our mouths? 
Nope. Just cultivate a healthy respect for a deadly enemy and a passion to abide in an intimate fellowship with our Father Who can right today send him cowering in mortal fear and eventually to the Lake of Fire forever. 

Here. Read this from Revelation 20 and have a delightful day! 

Revelation 20:1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 
and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. source

Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 
and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 
They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 
10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. source

How’s that for encouragement?

Perhaps There is Time

First I am set to remind you, those of you who might not know me well enough, I am neither a Scholar nor a Theologian, barely a Layperson. Today’s post is a WHAT IF post. A What if for you to consider prayerfully. A What If post that I hope encourages you to dig for yourself. That’s what I am doing. I dare say many may not like this post. I surely don’t. Let’s begin.

What if learned Scholars and well-studied Theologians have missed the message of Scripture? 
What if what we have believed is not actually borne-out in Scripture? 
What if The Rapture of the Church is not any day now?
What if The Rapture of the Church is not until Revelation 11?
I’m not saying it is, I’m saying What if?
I’m still mulling it over; still asking Adonai to talk to me about it.

What would it mean if this What If is what will be? 
Perhaps you have read my suggestion that 2020 is a trailer to the Tribulation. A means for us to gain more clarity on how the coming days will play. 
If The Rapture is not until after the Last Trumpet, that means we (unless we die prior) will see The Mark of the Beast. UNLESS, of course, the Last Hour is still many years away. 

I am wondering how faithful, how strong would I be? How strong would you be?
Many Churches closed their doors because the Government said close.
The Government said, isolate, put on a mask, shut down your businesses, stay home. 
We did.
We did that for a virus that has at its least rate of survival for aged persons with one or more comorbidities a 94.5% survival rate.  (And don’t forget the Vaccine. It’s already mandatory for some.) 
I am confident what we have done so far is not equal to the Mark of the Beast, but it should tell us something about who we are, shouldn’t it?
How would we tell the Government no I will not let you put that chip in my hand? No, I will not bow to the god of this world even if you starve my children and me to death. The survival rate then is not 94.5%. And surely not 99.997%.
For those caught refusing, 100% die. 

What if? What if many, many of us have been wrong? 
Should we not today start preparing? 
How do we even prepare for such an unthinkable event? 
That’s a good question. 

We have believed, many of us, that this passage is not talking about us because we have believed we won’t be here. What if we are? 
I’m not learned enough to argue either way today. I thought I was. Now I am not so sure. Shouldn’t I be? Shouldn’t you be?  

Revelation 12:11  (AMP) 11 And they overcame and conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, for they did not love their life and renounce their faith even when faced with death. source

I do know this: it is not The LORD’s will for us to be afraid of this.
It is not The LORD’s will that we be sad, borrow trouble, have downcast faces and worried spirits.
It is His Will for us to overcome TODAY by the Word of our Testimony that The Blood of JESUS is enough to cleanse and save a wretch like any of us. 

One more question. How much Scripture do we have sealed in our minds that we could call on it, lean on it and be embolden with it even if we didn’t have a cellphone to look it up or a Bible to hold in our hands to read?
I confess I am lacking BUT perhaps we have a few years to study and show ourselves approved

A Dose

Of reality.

This life drains the life out.

What do I have to live for some are asking in this COVID nightmare? 
Others try to go along to get along pretending the nightmare is temporary.
It’s not temporary if it continues. And who gets to decide when it ceases to continue?
The ones who started it?
And what gives evidence they want it to stop?
The Power Ones are virtually unaffected. They get the same paycheck. They fly the same airplanes. They eat the same rich foods. They drink the same fine wine. They have the same employees to fetch for them. 
Why would they lift their thumbs?
And with all this — where is the average, common Sue and Robert? 

This is our world for those without GOD. 

Revelation 6

Psalm 37:25  (NLT)
25 Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned
or their children begging for bread. 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
