Luke chapters 22 and 28

luke-chapters-22-and-28-2017

It happens to every true lover of GOD and His son. And it is written in the word that these thing will happen too.

Those of us who do listen to GOD, love GOD, and have an unconditional loving relationship with GOD and His son know this….many will hate us because of this. It is like they can sense GOD within us even when we walk into a room. People who hate Jesus will feel him in us and will try to do us any kind of harm or even just even “snarl” and grit their teeth in hate.

I have had many people who I have never met will call me sister! Never have we seen each other before, give me hugs and kisses like a long-lost brother or sister! It touches my heart and theirs too! Making each others day. We may not meet again until we cross over to the other side and be with our Lord, giving Him praise and thanks! It just warms my very soul when I meet such wonderful people. And not all are in Church either, they are random people I meet in traveling in everyday events.

There seems to be less and fewer people now a days they that will openly say are a child of GOD. But how are we to plant the seed of encouragement to others if we hide our love for GOD and His son Jesus? Some people welcome to hear you talk about Jesus and feel good to know another fellow Christian!

But then…..

You will find those that find out you are a true Christian they seek to challenge your faith. To prove to others you are not what you say you are . And this will come from those who do love sin, and hate those who love the Lord. They could be at school, or work, or anywhere you will be. If they see you every single day, they will watch you, looking to see you do what they  would do. As though they feel you are too good to be true.

They feel you are also judging them for the life style they are living. But if you are just being polite and showing yourself as friendly, they take it in a secular mindset they you want and need them to be your friend and will treat in a way as thou you need them to be a friend to you. But this is not what being nice and polite is in the Christian mind-set. They turn from you and do not want anything to do with you.

They may not want anything to do with you but GOD does, and HE does want to be with you so much that HE sent His son Jesus to save us from the sins we all have done that is like a wall of sin or a deep split in the earth of sin between us and GOD. Jesus is the answer to that and has made a bridge for us to go thru on to reach the heavenly FATHER.

And this is so wonderful that an all-powerful GOD, who made heaven and earth, knows and sees all, is present everywhere at all times, know what our hearts are , wants us to come home because HE does love us so.

Do not let people who hate the LORD still your joy, and distract you from GOD, and accepting Jesus as your savior. Read Psalm 37. You will see that the same issues you are having right now with those who hate GOD, these people back then that loved GOD are going through the same non sense. Same sinful natures only with different people, places and times.

Psalm 37

1. (a Psalm of David.) Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.

13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.

14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.

18 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.

22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.

24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.

25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.

30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.

33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.

34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.

35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.

38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.

39 But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.

40 And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: he shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in him.

Peace!

JESUS is my joy! Google to find Facebook group to join!

Ever notice how some people are so enthusiastic about joining in on some non-religious events to the point that they are willing to make certain sacrifices to be there? Ever wonder how our GOD (speaking to those who do love and  believe in GOD and His son Jesus now) must think about that?

Giving thought to this while looking at the parade for Thanksgiving day past, I saw many people outside enjoying themselves while watching the parade. I just wondered why some of us who do love GOD and believe in His son JESUS are not as enthusiastic, or hide our faith from the people around us, don’t bond together and give praise openly, or are afraid to pray for the past lives we have had.

And this is not to say that I don’t like a nice parade, because I do. This is why I watch them. But when a Pastor had said even about the super bowl football games…you will see people dressed in clothing of their team. Some will even paint their skins the colors of their team sacrificing the cold weather conditions and health related ailments that will come from all of this to support the team of their choice.

Our GOD sees all we do, and to think all of the people of the world HE watched over all and knows our hearts like these people that are here in these pictures. He knows what we do and have done in our lives. GOD sent His son JESUS to be our savior , the key to the Kingdom of GOD where we all can one day see our GOD smiling at us when we are their in HIS house. Praising HIM, seeing the face of JESUS before us smiling too saying welcome home, job well done.

Just to think, every person to live after Adam and Eve that walked the face of this earth GOD does know about. We can not hide what we do, never. We can not out smart GOD, and think if you do this where no one will see you, no one will know. But that’s the thing, it is mentioned in Genesis chapter one about creation

Genesis Chapter 1:2

“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

So…..seeing that GOD was forming the earth and there was darkness….HE CAN SEE what we do even if we can not see HIM.

But there is light now that was made for the earth, and we can see it.

Genesis 1:3

“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”

I do meet people beside from being in Church, who are joyfully willing to talk lovingly about the LORD . And it is a very good feeling when you meet a person who does share this sisterly or brotherly bond with you. You just feel it when you are with them. They will share that JESUS heart/love with you. So knowing such a wonderful feeling you want to share it with everyone you do meet, but there are some people who will be very mean and say or do mean things knowing you are saved and not like them.

The unbelievers do not understand that not ALL people who are Christians judge, I do not believe this is the right thing to do. For we are ALL sinners! There is no such thing as one person saying they are holier than thou. The Bible is very clear on this.

 Romans 3:23

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

We are to plant the seed, and allow the person to make up their minds on their own. GOD has that power of convection over them to give them the chance to make the choice of what road they will take. HE gives us all freedom of choice. You do not want to let anyone not go without knowing that they can be saved!

The Believers Christian Praise Parade

Christian can have a parade or greeting too. Why not? It is good to share the good news to those who want to hear it! I am just so very happy to meet people who do share my joy, and in a crowd praising GOD, wearing my JESUS heart and sprit…..and know that we have made the choice to follow JESUS where we all will look up to the heavens hands raised , throwing kisses to GOD in our praise parade as HE looks down on us and will say “these are me children who love me, and I do love them so.”

 

 

Matthew 22:36-40

JESUS is my Joy!

norman-rockwell

Matthew 22:36-40King James Version (KJV)

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

 

The drawing above by the late Norman Rockwell came up as I was researching the scripture on what our beloved JESUS has said about the commandments. I see back in his day that he too wanted to make a point about living in peace and wanting to get along with his fellow man.

That will be hard, seeing that not all mankind has the same JESUS love within them. Many listen to the evil one and do his evil to others through the temptation and lies he pours into their ears. This makes it hard for them to seek JESUS for they have been lied to for so long. Confused and misguided to do evil and told they are too bad now, that they are doomed for hell. But this is not any ones judgment  call but GODs seeing it is HIS heaven and HE is running it.

The news has been the same for centuries of people not getting along. It is the same sins done by the next generation of people since Adam and Eve. Same mean and evil nonsense. The evil one has been around since the creation of mankind….and sees how we were made. So this is why we need JESUS and to learn HIS ways as what it is said in the Bible. JESUS is very clear about love.

No evil has love in it.

This is why we need to understand what this nonsense we do to each other that is the opposite of what JESUS said to do to each other is not right. And we need JESUS to help us to do this 24/7 for we are of the flesh and can not do this alone. For hate against another person is a sin.

This news that is going on since Donald Trump was put into office has caused even more strife among the whole people of the earth. Feeding into the negative things that are happening around us because of him being in office. Many people did not want him in, and so now he is….so let GOD deal with him. Trump may not know GOD on a personal level or even be saved by the blood of JESUS. But, we have to remember the word of GOD in the Bible….one persons child against the other persons child. No matter how old we will be, we are still another woman’s child.

Psalm 121:7

“The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.”

This is what I depend on, not what any other human will say or do. It is not up to them to rule the earth. Look at what happened to King Nebuchadnezzar in the bible in the book of Daniel chapter 4? Pride took him down to his knees.

So with this in mind…..we can not let the ways of the world turn us from GOD and doing our beat to live in peace and to keep HIS commandment.

Matthew 22:39

36Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38This is the first and great commandment. 39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. 41While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David.

All of this makes sense, because if we can not get along here right now on GODS earth….what makes us think that we can take that non sense into heaven?  Think about this, we are ALL the children of the generations of Adam and Eve. Please let us all pray for the whole world.

Peace be to you all who do read this blog.
