(KJV.) I CORINTHIANS 14:15
(15) What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
Before Jesus Christ ascended into heaven, he advised his disciples not to depart from Jerusalem but wait for the promise of the Father, which is the Holy Ghost, cf. Acts 1:1-2; out of obedience to his instructions, on the day of Pentecost, the promise was fulfilled, Acts 2, for detailed information of how the Holy Ghost manifested his powers through the disciples; from that point forward, the Holy Ghost never departed from believers, using them to manifest his glories, good works among the congregations of God; for wherever two or three people are gathered together in the name of God, and of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, the Holy Ghost is among them as well, cf. Matthew 18:20; many times, the Holy Spirit descended upon believers in the form of an anointing oils, very peaceful in nature, yet, with a rushing mighty piercing wind, that whenever it descends upon the believers, his presence cannot be hidden from others but manifested, proclaimed in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, whenever we feel his presence within and around us, never quench him away, cf. I Thess. 5:19; there is a reason for his manifestations, it all for our own welfares.
The lesson today is about speaking in tongues; one of the greater gifts of the Holy Spirit, referring to the subject, most believers speak in tongues for various reasons; some to communicate their thoughts processes to the Father, others speak in tongues to invite his oil of anointing upon them for various reasons, either to strengthen them in the midst of warfares, to do his works, or as he gave them the utterances for the upliftment of his congregations and for other believers; praying in tongues has been a controversial subject among believers, as to when, where, how it should manifest through the midst of the congregations of Jesus; regardless, speaking in tongues is a spiritual phenomenon for personal experiences, it is not beneficial for believers alone but also for his congregations as well, but depending upon interpretations; consequently, when the disciples spoke in tongues on the faithful day of Pentecost, they spoke not as mad men alone as assumed by witnesses but also performed miracles on the people; therefore, speaking in tongues is not a personal thing alone, but it is also a spiritual gift for the welfare of others; therefore, regardless of our perceptions, speaking in tongues was given not only for ourselves, but also to be utilized for his works depending upon the scenarios of his will; read about it in the book of Acts chapter 2:1-47, for detailed information about the prophecy and tongues; the point is, whenever we speak in tongues on behalf of the churches or others, let us also interpret what we speak for the benefit of the congregation, for seldom does anyone understands angelic utterances.
Beloved, let us feel free to speak in tongues whenever prompted by the Holy Spirit, it is a spiritual gift that cannot be purchased with robbery or bribery, but by grace, it is free of charge and helpful for believers and for the works of Jesus Christ; if there is anyone among us who does not utilize this gift yet, today, ask Jesus Christ to help you to resurrect it from within your innermost spirit; if you have the Holy Spirit, you also have the resurrection power to speak in tongues; I inspire you with courage to pray for his power of manifestation, it is beneficial for you and for people around you; try it, you will love it! Continue ye in Love! Jesus is coming back again soon! I thank you, for your time! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) PROVERBS 3:27
(27) Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
EXAMPLES TO EXEMPLIFY!
Each and every moment of our lives are worth a living in doing good to others, whether lovers or haters the same, Christian attitudes should prevail over divisions, hatreds, resentments, strives, etc.; let us look for something beneficial to do for others, from dawn to dusk, find ways to impact a life, leave a loving mark of kindness, compassion, and empathize towards the suffering; one of the greater attributes of Jesus Christ, is his love for souls, regardless of worldly classifications or believes, Jesus is not prejudiced, will not discriminate against anyone, as a matter of fact, when he looks down to the earth from the heavens, he does not perceive our skin colors, but perceives our inner man, hearts, the spiritual beings of who we are in this world; therefore, he will go above and beyond his supremacy, what the world would judge as rightful or wrongful to save a life upon the earth; at a time, though according to the law of Moses, the Sabbath day should be observed in holiness, read Exodus 20:8; it was an abomination for any Jew to work, Jesus, due to his love, and humanitarian reasons, violated the law of the Sabbath on several occasions, healed the sick when he was not supposed to, cf. Matthew 10:12, did what he had to do to help others who are in sufferings; therefore, as believers called to Jesus, let us follow his footsteps, the ways in which he related to the souls he interacted with while on the earth; if we are in a position to help a soul who is in any type of suffering that we are aware of, let us live by the example of how Jesus lived on the earth, what he did for the suffering, asked us to do for one another, do likewise; there are blessings in givings than receiving, read the following scriptural references on givings, Luke 6:38; Matthew 5:42; Mark 9:41; book of Acts, 20:35, etc., be merciful towards one another; never say to the suffering, go and come back tomorrow, I will give it to you when you can save a life, tomorrow might be too late for that person; therefore, let us endeavor to do what Jesus will do!
Beloved, on a Sabbath day, Jesus and his disciples went through a cornfield, the disciples were hungered and began to pluck the ears of corn to eat, but when the Pharisees saw it, they said to Jesus, look at your disciples doing what is unlawful to do on the Sabbath day, cf. Matthew 12:1-2; think deeply, what was the reason why the disciples violated the law? it was because they were starved and needed food to save their hungered souls; therefore, there are times when one have to react against all odds to place other people needs before theirs, be tenderhearted towards the sufferings, for, it is a rightful gesture for the righteous, do what Jesus will do! Continue to love one another as yourselves! Jesus is coming back again soon! Peace and Love be unto you! Thank you for your time! Amen and Amen!

(KJV.) ST. LUKE 16:17
(17) And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.
Grace be unto you! The grass withereth, the flower fadeth; but the word of our God shall stand forever. cf. Isaiah 40:8; as believers, we live by faith in the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, though we are on the earth, our lives, day to day walk of faith are monitored by the angels from above, depending upon our callings, relationship with Jesus, daily devotions to God, services to others, heaven is involved with our earthly affairs, as a reminder, whenever we recite the Lord's prayer, we verbally invite heaven into our earthly affairs, whatever we ask for, there are assigned angels to each and every one of us, ready to run the errands with our petitions to Jesus Christ, and to bring back the answers.
From the past generations to present times, the scriptures, word of God, have been in existence to teach, guide the man how to live his life truthfully, gracefully, and peacefully with his neighbors, not only that but also to use its reading contents as his shining light within the world of darkness; therefore, God, the Father, does not lie nor take his words lightly, like the man would, cf. Numbers 23:19; whenever he speaks, believe it or not; it is done, he watches over his words to perform, for the power of his strength, resides in his words; remember everything that he created, came from within his spirits, the angels are spirits, cf. Hebrew 1:7, except the man, who he formed out of the dust of the ground like unto himself, cf. Genesis 2:7; therefore, whenever he speaks his words, it is his nature to honor his words above his name; if he gives his words, it is done!
Let's analyze the above text; And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass; yes, it is, why? how? you see! the heaven and earth were created by God, by his words, it did not cost him anything to bring into existence, only by his words; if the heaven and earth pass, or be destroyed entirely by him; guess what? so long as God, the Father is on his throne, by his word, like he created them before, he would do it again; case in point, during the time of Noah, he destroyed all things of the earth with water, yet he brought them back again, therefore, there is no doubt about it, the word is the root of things of creation; regarding the last segment of the text, "than one title of the law to fail."; the law in this text refers to his recorded words in the scriptures, not necessarily the rules and regulations given through Moses, but also included with, are his words of statutes, counsels, hopes, reproves, encouragements, and ministrations of the psalms; therefore, he watches over them to fulfill his prophecies, covenants, promises, purposes on earth, in our lives; have anyone among us, wondered why whenever they pray his words back to him, they receive his immediate attention? the answer is very simple, God, the Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, honors his words above his name; he also sent his word to heal and deliver us from destructions. cf. Psalm 107:20: therefore, believe his words, ponders over them!
Beloved, the word of God is powerful, his words are established at the very moment he speaks them into existence, nothing can alter or cast away; by his word, Jesus Christ, the man received redemption from iniquities, healing, victories, deliverance, goodness, and mercies; therefore, let his words never depart from our lives, eat it every day as a daily bread, Matthew 6:11, food for our souls, drink of his living waters, John 7:38; live it, refer to, read the epistle of Apostle Paul letter to the Colossians chapter 3; believe, assimilate his words, ponder over, act upon it. Continue ye in Love! Jesus is coming back again soon! Thank you for reading! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen
WORD OF ASSERTION:
(KJV.) Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
