I have no feel-good message for you today.
I can only counsel us to pick up our Bibles, read them, obey the Author thereof, and share Him with everyone we can; we have no other individual hope.
The America we loved has expired.
There is no way back and because of human hatred, there is no way forward UNLESS there is national repentance and if I were you I’d not hold my breath waiting.
Repentance has not been a National practiced for longer than I can remember.
There are no honorable days ahead for America as a Nation. She has lost her way and her place.
As I said, I sure would like to be wrong but presently I don’t believe I am.
Anyone able to disprove the foregoing, please, please do!
Individually, JESUS still saves, for now.
Romans 10: (NKJV) (I don’t think the Father will mind if we add Americans in parenthesis right after the name Israel.)
1 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved.
2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.
3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God.
4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”
12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.
13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” source
My desire for you all is that you Seek the Prince of Peace and find rest for your souls.
The last Thursday of 2020.
There is no magic in turning the calendar from one year to the next although I have often acted as though it were.
New Year’s has been a favored holiday to me because it gives the sense of a new start. A fresh canvas.
So, do you have your brushes and paints ready for your 2021 canvas?
How about black-eyed peas and greens?
Cornbread and iced tea?
JT and I want for you a Romans 8:28 kind of year.
Romans 8:28 (AMP) 28 And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose. source
This is a good one to comment to memory if you have not already.
LORD willing I will see you back here in 2021!
It’s late. The day is far spent. That sounds like a Scripture text.
Let me look that up.
Well, actually it reads this way:
Romans 13:12 (NKJV) 12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light. source
Hmm. What does this say in context?
11 And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.
12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
13 Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy.
14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts. source
Sounds like it was written for us today, Tuesday, December 29, 2020, doesn’t it?
As I read this verse a couple of days ago, it is still with me.
18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. source
The question is, do I? Do I consider the sufferings of this present time not worthy to be compared with what shall come?
It’s a fair question and deserves the best answer I can give. I’m working on it — slowly, apparently.
Then there was verse 34.
34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. source
And to this one, I can only say, “Thank You, Adonai, for making intercession for me daily! Thank You for praying for me AND paying my debt! A debt I could NEVER pay.
A Good Monday Morning to you. . .
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
