DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  HEBREWS 12:24-29

(24)  And to Je'sus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of A'bel.
(25)  See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
(26)  Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying,  YET ONCE MORE I SHAKE NOT THE EARTH ONLY, BUT ALSO HEAVEN.
(27)  And this word,  Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.
(28)  Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved,  let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.
(29)  For our God is a consuming fire.


JESUS OUR MEDIATOR

Case in point,  (24)  And to Je'sus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of A'bel.  Apostle Paul refers to Jesus Christ as the middleman connecting the formal old agreement given by Moses, to the new agreement from the Father given through the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary;  (i)  on the cross of Calvary, Jesus cried out to the Father on behalves of humanity, for forgiveness of our iniquities, (Luke 23:34);  (ii) his blood was shed not only for himself but for many reasons, to bring humanity into the alignment of the Father's will through faith in his righteousness; (Matthew 26:28);  (iii)  his shed blood on the cross did more for the world than the blood of Abel, Son of Adam when his blood cried out from the ground to the Father, when he was slain by his brother Cain in the beginning of generations of the world.  (Genesis 4:10).

Points to ponder, (25)  See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven.  let us study this verse in segments,  (a)  See that ye refuse not him that speaketh,  For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth,  let us ask ourselves, who are those speaking?  the speakers are the ministering angels from the Father, (Hebrews 2:2); for angels are send forth as ministering spirits for them who shall the heirs of salvation. (Hebrews 1:14).  Therefore, let us pay attentions to those angels, for there are no excuses to get away for those who reject ministering angels who minister words of the Father on planet earth; for there are punishments awaiting children of disobedience in Hades;  (b)  much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven.  Brethren, if there are punishments awaiting those who rejects words of the Father delivered through ministering angels; what will be the repercussion set aside for those who rejects words coming from the Father himself through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior?  there will be no escape from his wrath for disobeying his words from above;  Christian believers, let us listen carefully to his words, trust and obey him.

(26)  Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying,  YET ONCE MORE I SHAKE NOT THE EARTH ONLY, BUT ALSO HEAVEN.  Beloved beware, before the Father spoke and his voice shock the earth, but he has given his words that he will shake not only the earth but the heaven also, (27)  And this word,  Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. that is, the Father will shake the earth one more time, to remove things that are humanly made such as buildings. bridges and towers that only things that were created on earth originally that cannot be removed such as mountains oceans and rivers will remain on earth. (28)  Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved,  let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.  brethren, after the Father shakes the earth and removes all the debris, those of us who will receive the immovable newer kingdom; let us have unmerited favors today, to hold fast the promise of kingdom inheritance and serve the Father diligently with honor, trembling before him in his righteousness. (29)  For our God is a consuming fire.  We thank Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior for being our advocate, sitting on the right hand of the Father and pleading on our behalves when we transgress against the Father;  for without his divinely interventions we would have all been consumed with fire for our everyday transgressions.  Thank you Jesus!


CONCLUSION:

Brethren, in today's lesson, we learn that Christ is the mediator between the two covenants; the old covenant of rules and regulations given by Moses and the new covenant of salvation, grace and life everlasting given once and for all through the shed blood of Jesus Christ;  today, we also, we learn that the earth and heavens will be shaken once more by the Father of creation, and only things that are immovable will remain, and we will receive the kingdom that cannot be removed by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!  


QUOTES OF THE DAY:

(KJV.)  1 Timothy 2:5  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Je'sus;...Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  1 PETER 4:12-14

(12)  Beloved,  think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you;
(13)  But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
(14)  If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye;  for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you:  on their part he is evil spoken of,  but on your part he is glorified.


REJOICE IN SUFFERING FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!

Case in point;  (12)  Beloved,  think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you;  as Christians, let not our hearts be troubled when we experience blazing hardships, as if an abnormal phenomenons had manifested upon our lives; but, let our faiths be strong in the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ;  let us pray without ceasing. (1 Thessalonians 5:17);  search the scriptures for words of encouragements from Jesus to help with our situations. (John 5:39);  have faith in God, knowing that whatever is going on is seasonal and will pass away in due times. (Mark 11:22);  also, at times, we ought to listen to preachers of the words of the Father and Jesus Christ when in trails, to be strengthen in faith;  for, it is written,  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17).

Points to ponder,   (13)  But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.  that is, Christian are to show happiness when in sufferings, as though things are going well with us, not allow our persecutors to to boast over our souls because they succeeded in doing evil against our lives;  let us be assured that if Christ lives within our innermost spirits and we live in him; then, we are more than conquerors; for Christ already suffered, died and resurrected to grant us grace and peace everlasting;  however, (i)  if we are faithful Christ followers, the enemy will pester with our lives to discourage us from the faith of his righteousness and persecutions will come upon our lives:  (ii)  if Christ died, rose again for righteousness sake; then as Christians, we will also experience some degrees of his sufferings, that through our sufferings, he may also be glorified through our innermost spirits;  (iii)  that when our sufferings are over, we will also be settled and rejoice exceedingly to the glorification of Christ our Lord and Savior;  therefore, Christians, let us have patience in our sufferings that the perfect work of Christ could be completed in our lives forevermore.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Fruits of thought,  (14)  If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye;  for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of,  but on your part he is glorified.  Christians, if we experience blame, discreet or disgrace from evil works of men because of who we are in Christ;  let us not feel downcast but rejoice and be exceedingly glad; knowing that we are unique and possess spiritual pureness of the Father and his sovereignty and dominion rests upon our lives;  for those who persecute our lives because of who we are, what we believe and our standings in faith of his righteousness, have no understandings of who Christ is nor believe in him as Lord and Savior;  therefore, they defame his characters and condemn him for what he stands for in his righteousness, and as Son of the living Father, and redeemer of the world;  however, Christians believe in (i)  God the Father and Jesus is his Son; (ii)  who suffered for all our iniquities, (iii)  he was crucified on cross of Calvary, (iv)  he died for sins not committed, buried, went into the grave to set all captives free from enemy bondage, (v)  he resurrected from the grave and ascended into heaven, (vi)  seated on the right hand of the Father, (vii)  he is now our advocate, who pleads for mercies of the Father on our behalves, (viii)  until his second coming and our rapture into life everlasting.


CONCLUSION:

Dearly beloved, today's lesson is an encouragement to our faith in Christ Jesus, to persevere and forbear through all sufferings, trails and tribulations of our faiths in Christ's righteousness;  if we believe in Christ and his sufferings on behalf of humanity, then let us use his sufferings as examples for our trails and know that trails will surely come our ways as his followers but in our sufferings, let us rejoice to know that when sufferings are over and his works are accomplished within our minds, spirits and bodies; Christ will be glorified within our souls;  therefore, if we are currently experiencing sufferings;  let us not pay too much attentions to our negative situations but try to rejoice exceedingly with songs of praises, prayers and supplications, giving thanks to the Father through Christ who is able to do all things; he will have mercy upon our souls and change things around for good this year;  let us have patience so Christ could finish his works in our lives to receive his glorification upon our lives forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!


QUOTES OF THE DAY:

(KJV.)  James 1:2-4  My brethren,  count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;...Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience...But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  ACTS 8:36:-39

(35)  Then Philip opened his mouth,  and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.
(36)  And as they went on their way,  they came unto a certain water:  and the eunuch said,  See, here is water;  what doth hinder me to be baptized?
(37)  And Philip said,  If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest.  And he answered and said,  I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
(38)  And he commanded the chariot to stand still:  and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
(39)  And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.


BELIEVE IN JESUS!

In this scripture, the Lord used Phillip mightily to his glorification;  but who is Phillip?, he was one of the seven men chosen by Christ disciples, of honest report, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, to oversee the affairs of murmuring Gre'-cians against the He'brews, regarding their widows who were neglected in daily ministration and to preach the gospel to unbelievers.

Case in point, an angel of the Lord spake unto Phillip, asking him to go towards the south down the way from Jerusalem unto Ga'-za desert; he obeyed, when he got there, he saw a man of E-thi-o'-pi-a, an eunuch, sitting in his chariot read the book of E-sa'-ias the prophet; the Spirit of the Lord said to Philip to go near and join himself to his chariot, he ran unto him and heard him read the book of E-sa'-ias and asked, do you understand what you are reading?  The eunuch answered Phillip, how can I, except someone leads me?  and he asked Philip to come and sit with him;  (35)  Then Philip opened his mouth,  and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.  Christians, obedience is the key to see manifestations of the Father's glory; when the Father calls us for his purposes, let us not doubt his voice but trust, obey and proceed;  at times, the Father does not tell us exactly what will happen until we get to our destinations:  In this case, the angel of the Lord did not explain himself to Phillip, the reason why he ought to take that journey to the dessert of Gaza, until he obeyed him, there he met the eunuch reading the scriptures that he did not understood and Phillip was used mightily to teach him the gospel of Jesus Christ and he received salvation and eternity;   (36)  And as they went on their way,  they came unto a certain water:  and the eunuch said,  See, here is water;  what doth hinder me to be baptized?  Christians, words of the scriptures are spirits, alive and can touch lives and convert souls to believe in Christ;  for, when Phillip read the scriptures to the eunuch and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to him, he understood it, Christ touched his heart, he converted and requested to be baptized right away when he saw certain water on their way;  Glory be to Jesus!  As believers, we hear the gospel being preach, read the scriptures; but the question we need to ask ourselves is, have we been baptized by water immersion?  if not, let us think about doing so as quickly as possible, it is necessary steps to be taken for salvation and life everlasting.

Points to ponder,  (37)  And Philip said,  If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest.  And he answered and said,  I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  Followers of Jesus Christ, let be aware that before we can receive baptism into the faith of the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ;  (i) first of all, we have to repent from all our transgressions;  (ii)  Secondly, believe in Jesus as Son of God;  (iii)  Thirdly, receive him into our hearts as Lord and Savior;  (iv)  Fourthly, be baptized into the faith of his righteousness;  (v)  Lastly, our salvation and eternities are assured forevermore:  (38) And he commanded the chariot to stand still:  and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.  Philip's mission was successful and to God be all glory forevermore!  for, the Spirit of the Lord manifested itself mightily through Phillip on that day, the eunuch was converted, received salvation and eternity.  Ponder point, what is the Spirit of the Lord asking us to do today, that we have not yet obeyed his voice?

Fruits of thoughts,   (39)  And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.  Beloved, when we trust and obey the Father and allow him to use us for his glory; there are rewards given for obedience to him;  in this aspect,  the Father used Philip mightily to saved the eunuch's life into eternity, after, he gave Philip supernatural powers to disappear from the desert of Gaza where he baptized the eunuch to A-zo-tus, and passing through to Caes-a-re'a, he also preached the gospel in all the cities; but the eunuch went home with joyfulness of heart.  Great is the faithfulness of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forevermore.


CONCLUSION:

Dearly beloved, today's lesson is about obedience and trusting the Lord;  at times, we trust in our own understandings and cannot perceive what the Holy Spirit says, but we read in the scriptures to,  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding...in all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths, Proverbs 3:5-6;  when we are not certain of what the Spirit of the Lord is saying to us or where he is leading us,  let us seek his face with prayers and supplications, to know exactly what he will want us to do, allow him to lead our ways in his righteousness, not lose hope but trust him; regardless, of where we are going, known or unknown destinations, let us be aware that Christ is in the driver's seats of our mobilizations and we will not miss roads to our destinations but we will arrive there safely by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit through Christ Jesus.  Amen and Amen!

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  MATTHEW 8:23-27

(23)  And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.
(24)  And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves:  but he was asleep.
(25)  And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying,  Lord, save us:  we perish.
(26)  And he saith unto them,  Why are ye fearful,  O ye of little faith?  Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
(27)  But the men marvel led, saying,  What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?


WHAT MANNER OF MAN IS JESUS?

Case in point,  (23)  And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.  Christian believers, it is very important for us to take time to rest from our labors; the Father rested on the seventh day after creation (Genesis 2:2); we can also notice in the ministry of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, that many times after hard work, will withdraw himself into a quiet place to rest, to get in touch with the Father by prayer; in this text, he entered into a ship but his disciples followed him; as soon as he laid down to rest, he fell asleep;  (24)  And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.  Brethren, this is time of testing of faith for his disciples;  Firstly, let us ask ourselves these questions,  (i)  how could the great tempest arose at sea against the ship, when the light of the world, Jesus Christ was on the ship asleep? I believe the enemy had done this to disturb his sleep but he was not disturb at all; also, the tempest came as a test of faith for his disciples but their faith was not strong enough to rebuke the storm themselves and was afraid of perishing at sea;  (ii)  how come the great tempest in the sea, which covered the ship with waves, did not disturb Jesus from sleeping but the disciples had to wake him up from his sleep to rebuke the storm?  I believe that Jesus was sleeping at the bottom part of the ship, though he was asleep, he knew what was going on through his spirits but entrusted in his disciples to exercise their faith over the tempest of the sea but the disciples lacked confidence in themselves that they could actually calm the tempest of the sea themselves without Jesus around to encourage them; also there were others who were not disciples on the ship;  may be, they might not want to be put to shame, if they were unable to calm the tempest of the sea with their own authorities.

Points ponder,  (25)  And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying,  Lord, save us:  we perish.  let us study this verse in segments;  (a)  And his disciples came to him,  Jesus disciples had seen him preached the gospel of the kingdom of heaven, heard his encouragements to have faith in themselves to move mountains;  why were they lacking faith to calm the tempest of the sea and coming to him for help to calm the storm?  First of all, I believe that because they knew that Jesus has powers to do all things and he was on the ship with them, they did not make efforts to exercise their own authorities over the tempest of the sea.  Secondly, I believe that they have faith in Jesus more than themselves;  let us have faith in Jesus!  Thirdly, Jesus was still on earth with them and the resurrection powers of the Holy Spirit to perform miracles, signs and wonders had not be given unto them yet,  (b)  and awoke him, saying,  Lord, save us;  we perish.   Lord save us; we perish?. How could the disciples, fear the tempest of the sea and panicked for their lives when the Savior of the world was on the ship with them?  Again, they feared for their lives because of lack of faith that they can do all things through Christ who strengthen them. (Philippians 4:13).  (26)  And he saith unto them,  Why are ye fearful,  O ye of little faith?  Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.   Jesus asked his disciples, "why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? the disciples were fearful of the tempest of the sea because of lack of faith in themselves that they can exercise authorities over the tempest and it will obey them. (2 Timothy 1:7);  Christian, we need to have faith in Jesus to please him; for without faith it is impossible to please him. (Hebrew 11:6); not just faith in him alone but also to exercise our faith by trusting and believing that all things can be accomplish with faith in his righteousness. (Matthew 17:20).  

Fruits of thoughts,   (27)  But the men marvel led, saying,  What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?   everyone on the ship marvelled saying,  What manner of man is Jesus?  (i)  Jesus is the Son of God. (John 20:31).  (ii)  He is the truest light of the world, (John 8:12).  (iii)  He is the Redeemer of the world. (Galatians 3:13).  Jesus disciples had faith in him that if he is with them on the ship, nothing bad could happen to them; for he can calm the tempest of the sea, and that was the reason why they did not try to calm the tempest themselves but woke him up from his sleep to exercise his authority over the tempestuous sea.  Praise be to his Holy Name forevermore!


CONCLUSION:

Brethren, today's lesson is an encouragement to all Christian believers that though we have faith in Jesus, enough faith to be his followers, at times, we will face life challenges whereby we will have to escalate our faiths in him to higher levels to overcome whatever mountains of difficulties life brings along our ways;  no matter what our setbacks are in life currently, beloved, let us know for facts that though it might seem like Jesus is sleeping on us, he is not sleeping at all; but he has plans to bring all things together for good for them that love God, ........(Romans 8:28);  let us have faith in Jesus, that he is able to clam all tempests of our seas and grant us peace, joy and life everlasting.  Amen and Amen!

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.) 1 THESSALONIANS 4:13-18

(13)  But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
(14)  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
(15)  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
(16)  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
(17)  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with Lord.
(18)  Wherefore comfort one another with these words.


ARE YOU READY?

Case in point,  (13)  But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.  Apostle Paul is saying to Christian believers not to lack knowledge and understandings regarding death, for when we die, we are just sleeping in Christ and will resurrect back to life again on day of rapture;  therefore, when believers sleep in Christ, we ought not to cry and mourn as unbelievers who do not have hope of eternity in Jesus Christ;  (14)  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.  that is, if we believe in the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, then we ought to believe also that those who die in Christ are not dead but are sleeping in him and will resurrect unto the Father;  if we believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, walk in faith in his righteousness; Christians will not die permanent deaths when they sleep in death but will resurrect again to life with immortal bodies on the day of rapture into life everlasting.

Points to ponder,  (15)  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.  Apostle Paul is saying, that by the word of Christ, those who are living currently and will be fortunate to behold his second coming back to earth, their being alive should not hinder those who are already sleeping in death from rising up again from death and to be caught up together into the arms of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  16)  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:  that is, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the same who was crucified, died, resurrected and ascended unto the Father, will come down again to earth with sounds of thunders of voices of high ranking angels of his Holiness, and loud sounding trumpets of the Father; and those who are sleeping in him, will resurrect first from their graveyards:  wonderful!; even those who we bury in graveyards, on the day of rapture will rise up first, though they are sleeping in deaths and forgotten by humanity;  Christ is still thinking about both the dead and the living and he will raise the dead back to life on the day of rapture into life everlasting.

Fruits of thoughts, (17)  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with Lord.  that is, those who will be still alive when trumpets shall sound from heavenly places for Christ's second coming, they will magnetize together with resurrected spirits of the dead in immortal bodies into the firmament of glory, to meet with Christ in the air and to dwell with him in heavenly places forevermore;  therefore, there is hope in eternity for all humanity; regardless, of how we suffered and died on planet earth, there is hope in Jesus Christ, he is the only way, truth and life; no man cometh to the Father, but by him. (John 14:6);  believers, let us think about these things; and,  (18)  Wherefore comfort one another with these words.  if we receive Christ into our hearts as Lord and Savior, believe in him and his words, be baptized into the faith of his righteousness and live in godliness, our salvation and eternities are assured; regardless of how our spirits will evaporate out of our mortal bodies; it does not matter at all to Jesus Christ on the day of his second coming, rapture and eternity;  let us weep for the dead no more but rejoice that we will see them again with Jesus in life everlasting!


CONCLUSION:

Brethren, in today's lesson;  we learn that, there is hope for believers who die in Christ, and we are all precious in the eyes of him who called us out of darkness into his marvelous light;  and are all on different assignments for the Father on planet earth, we cannot all be physicians or lawyers but we are all his children and are accepted by him through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  therefore, let us not feel inferior about ourselves any longer but trust and believe in him, and be rest assured that he will not leave us behind on the day of rapture, but we will be caught up together with him in the clouds to life everlasting.  Amen and Amen.

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  EPHESIANS 2:8-10

(8)   For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God:
(9)   Not of works, lest any man should boast.
(10)  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Je'sus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.


RECEIVE YE GRACE!

Case in point, first of all,  let us search for the meaning of the word grace?  per Marriam-Webster dictionary definitions are,  (i)  unmerited divine assistance given humans for their regeneration or sanctification; (ii)  a virtue coming from God;  (iii)   a state of sanctification enjoyed through divine grace.

Now, we have the understandings from humanly perspectives of the word grace, we can now study the text carefully to understand it from divinely perspectives of the scriptures; (8)   For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God:  let us study the verse in segments;  (a)  For by grace are ye saved through faith;  by grace (unmerited favor), we receive salvation and eternity by repentance of our transgressions, receiving Jesus Christ into our hearts as Lord and Savior, believing in him and be baptized into the faith of his righteousness;  (b)  and not of yourselves;  we also have to realize that, though grace was already established before the foundation of the world, grace did not manifest until Jesus Christ came to earth suffered, died and resurrected to save humanity from bondage of iniquities that humanity was able to enter into his grace, salvation and life everlasting; grace did not come through our own human efforts;  (c)  it is the gift of God;  that is, grace is a present from the Father, given voluntary to those who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, believe in him, and walk by faith in his righteousness, grace was not given because we fasted, prayed or petitioned the Father to have mercy on humanity; the Father gave grace freely because of his love for humanity. ref. (John 3:16).


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Points to ponder,   (9)   Not of works, lest any man should boast.  brethren, we receive grace and the gift of salvation through faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; grace was not given through our own human efforts that anyone should glory in the eyes of men but it was given through Jesus Christ before the world began, (2 Timothy 1:9), according to the Father's own purposes to do away with death, and bring life and ungodliness to light by preaching the truth of kingdom of heaven unto planet earth..

Fruits of thoughts, (10)  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Je'sus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. that is, we are the Father's perfect creation; formed in Christ Jesus for higher callings, which the Father officially pre destine before the foundation of the world that we should take charges to manifest on planet earth:  believers, we are not on planet earth by our own choices, there are reasons and purposes why we were born; and those reasons and purposes are placed in our blueprints of life; to find our purposes in life, we  are to pray to our Father for revelations of his purposes and wills in our lives and to direct our ways in life to fulfill our god given assignments by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


CONCLUSION:

Brethren, May the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the love of the Father, and the sweet fellowship of the Holy Ghost abide with us all forever and evermore!  Amen and Amen!


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

(KJV.)  Romans 4:16  Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of A'bra-ham; who is the father of us all.

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE: (KJV.)  MATTHEW 5:38-42 (38)   Ye have heard that it hath been said,  AN EYE FOR AN EYE,  AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH: (39)   But I say unto ...

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  MATTHEW 5:38-42

(38)  Ye have heard that it hath been said,  AN EYE FOR AN EYE,  AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH:
(39)  But I say unto you,  That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
(40)  And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
(41)  And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
(42)  Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.


RESIST NOT EVIL!

Case in point, in this chapter, Jesus went up to a mountain and his disciples came unto him, when he saw the multitudes, he opened up his mouth and thought them these words;  (38)  Ye have heard that it hath been said,  AN EYE FOR AN EYE,  AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH:  Brethren, in the law of Moses, whatsoever, evil gesture is done to another, same will be retaliated back to that individual; (Leviticus 24:20);  (39)  But I say unto you,  That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.  Jesus thought the multitudes not to stop wrong doing from happening to them but rather intake humanly injustices;  that, if anyone should slap right parts of their faces, to allow same afflictions on left sides also;  today, we may say great! we have been greatly afflicted on one sides of our faces, why should we turn to the opposite sides and allow evil doers to continue their evil works without retaliating?;  believers, at times when we try to defend ourselves, we make matters worse and deep ourselves into troubles which might defame our characteristics as believers of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  for it is not about who is right or wrong; it is about walking in faith in his righteousness; and if we believe that we have a vindicator in higher authority Jesus Christ, who knows and sees all wrong doings, then we ought to yield all evil doings of men into his jurisdiction and allow him to settle all injustices, we should not fight for ourselves.


WORDS OF INSPIRATION:

Points to ponder,  (40)  And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. for example, if  friends or neighbors decides to settle minor misunderstandings with us regarding disputes over any personal belongings; let us just yield in to whatever it is that we find our selves striving over; for it is not worth the time and expense to go through any jurisdictions to settle matters; if we pray about all things regarding disputes and misunderstandings with others, Jesus Christ himself will take absolute control and whatever we owe that was be taken away, he will restore them back in multiple portions and better qualities than before; also, let us not strive over earthly things, that will perish with the wind, and we fly away to be at rest;  what we actually need to focus on are our destinations after life on earth, not material things of this earth;  material things are blessing to sustain lives and keep us happy before the Father who gave them but are for temporary enjoyments, our permanent blessings are with our heavenly Father. (Matthew 6:19-21):  (41)  And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.  that is, for example, if anyone should ask for help for anything that we are able to provide; let us give unto them much more than what they ask for:  another example, if a beggar should ask for money for something to eat, and we know how much a hamburger may cost him/her and we have enough cash in our wallets, let us give them enough money not just to buy a hamburger alone but also to buy something to drink after they eat their meal; that is what Jesus will do!  for, he multiplied five loaves and two fishes to feed multitudes when they were hungry, (Matthew 14:19);  in other words, believers, let us show mercies greatly to those who seek for assistance during difficult times.

Fruits of thoughts,  (42)  Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.  that is, we are to give unto those who will ask for assistance or would like to borrow things from us and not refuse to give, lend of extend our kindness unto them;  before anyone will have courage to approach another for any type of assistance, they might have prayed and thought about their actions before carrying them out; at times, other people might feel degraded in statues if they ask for assistance from others; but, if they are able to come out of their shells to seek helps; if we are able to offer those assistance, it is godly on parts to do so and not refuse to help them; at times, we might need to give away things permanently, if we have duplicates of same items; for, our Father who see all things will richly reward our kind gestures with earthly and heavenly blessings forevermore.


CONCLUSION:

Brethren, today, there are three major points of the above text, point one;  we are not to retaliate evil for evil but good for evil and leave all  injustices to Jesus Christ our vindicator to prove us in due times; point two;  we are not to strive with anyone over earthly things;  point three;  we are to have mercy on others; for our Father is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. (Psalm 103:8): beloved, have we receive Jesus Christ into our hearts as Lord and Savior yet?  if not, let us not wait any longer, if we do not know what to do to receive him;  let us pray to him to lead us into his arms of grace, peace and life everlasting; Jesus is real!   Amen and Amen!


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

(KJV.)  Proverbs 20:22  Say not thou,  I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  2 CORINTHIANS 5:18-21

(18)  And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
(19)  To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciliation the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
(20)  Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us:  we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
(21)  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.


RECONCILIATION OF GOD

Case in point,  (18)  And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;  brethren, after the fall of Adam in the garden of Eden, man became sinful in all his ways and because of our sins, the Father hid himself behind the veil of holiness, (Isaiah 64:7);  though humanity trespassed against him in the garden of Eden, he cannot separate himself away from his children forever and allow the enemy to continue to pester with their lives; for the whole universe came into existence by the works of the Father and all things belongs to him;  for this reason, he gave his only begotten son Jesus Christ as a sacrificial lamb to be slaughtered to wipe away all iniquities once and for all, to tore off the veil and to bring humanity into alignment with him because of his love for humanity; and through Christ's sufferings, death and resurrection; believers receive testimonies and powers to spread the good news of the truth of his heavenly kingdom on earth, how to resolve issues with him and others when we trespass and how to restore friendship back again with him through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forevermore.

Points to ponder,  (19)  To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciliation the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. that is, we ought to know that the Spirit of the Father was imparted into flesh as Christ; through his death and resurrection all issues of iniquities were resolved by unification of Spirit of the Father with Spirit of Christ his Son, the Father made peace with himself not to intake our trespasses against us any longer but rather entrust us with his righteousness, words of love, peace and to fellowship with him in the beauty of his holiness and life everlasting;  (20)  Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us:  we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. that is, we are currently chosen ministers and representatives for Jesus Christ, as if the Father entrusted us with one another in the faith of his righteousness; but let us rather entrust ourselves into Christ;s own hands to conform our lives with the Father through salvation, grace, peace and eternity.


WORDS OF INSPIRATION:

Fruits of thoughts,  (21)  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.  let us carefully study this verse of today's text, (i)  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin;  that is, though Christ was part of the Spirit of the Father, born into flesh and hath no iniquities in him;  the Father made him to bear our iniquities on the cross of Calvary, to settle all iniquities between the Father and humanity once and for all by his sacred blood shed on behalf of humanity; (ii)  that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.  that is, through the blood of Christ, shed on the cross of Calvary, all iniquities were settled with the Father forevermore and the veil hindering us from approaching the throne of grace was broken and we are now able to enter into the perfect will of the Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.


CONCLUSION:

Brethren, what can we do to repay our Father for his goodness and mercies bestowed upon us, to send his only begotten son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior to stand trails for our sins, suffered and bled from wounds afflicted upon him to wipe away all our iniquities so we never have to perform rituals of sin offerings (Leviticus 4);  today, regardless of our shortcomings;  Jesus loves humanity so much and saying "go and sin no more. (John 8:11)";  though we may still trespasses against him; for we are all sinners in nature, when that happens, let us repent right away and be forgiven by his blood so we are settled again to fellowship with him in faith through his righteousness forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!


QUOTES OF THE DAY:

(KJV.)  Hebrew 8:12  FOR I WILL BE MERCIFUL TO THEIR UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, AND THEIR SINS AND THEIR INIQUITIES WILL I REMEMBER NO MORE.....In that he saith,  A new covenant,  he hath made the first old.  Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  MARK 7:27-30

(27)  But Jesus said unto her,  Let the children first be filled:  for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.
(28)  And she answered and said unto him,  Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs.
(29)  And he said unto her,  For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.
(30)  And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.


FAITH WORKS

Case in point, in this chapter, Jesus went to the borders of Tyre and Si'don, and entered into a house to hid himself'; there was a Greek, a Sy-ro-phe-ni'cian by nation woman whose daughter had an unclean spirit, she came and fell down at Jesus's feet and ask if he would cast the devil out of her daughter;  (27)  But Jesus said unto her,  Let the children first be filled:  for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs. First of all, the woman was a Greek, of a Sy-ro-phe-ni'cian by nation; Jesus had just entered the borders of Tyre and Si'don after probably a long journey and came into a house to rest himself but as soon as he got there the Sy'ro-phe-ni'cian woman came to fish him out to heal his daughter of demonic affliction; Jesus, in other words said to her, "Pardon me, I just got here, let me feed these sheep first with words of the Father to the fullest; for, it is not right for me to take their blessings and divert them unto unbelievers;" well, Jesus was right; he had an agenda that day to work within those two cities and did not want his attention to be distracted to other unintended purposes;  this is a lesson for us to try to stick to what we got written down on our calendars this year and not get distracted from what our resolutions are for year 2015.

 
WORDS OF INSPIRATION:

Points to ponder,   (28)  And she answered and said unto him,  Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under the table eat of the children's crumbs.  Whaoo!  What an unshakable faith, the woman knew that it was not in her jurisdiction to ask Jesus to come with her and heal her daughter, but she believed that Jesus cannot refuse to heal anyone regardless of what nationality, race, or genders; so she still persuaded him with humility and respectful words;  when we humble ourselves before the Lord, with prayers and supplications, we will receive his attentions and it will be well with us again regardless of what our predicaments will be, there is nothing impossible with Jesus;  (29)  And he said unto her,  For this saying go thy way; the devil is gone out of thy daughter.  in other words, Jesus said unto her, "woman, because of your humbleness in words towards me, go on home; your daughter is healed of her demonic affliction;" from the words of the woman, Jesus was able to determined that the woman was godly and by her humbleness; Jesus had mercy on her and send his words to heal her daughter of her demonic affliction;  (30)  And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out, and her daughter laid upon the bed.  Hallelujah!  Finally, when the woman got home, her daughter was laying in bed but completely healed from her demonic afflictions;  brethren, can you imagine how happy and appreciative this woman was?:  the scriptures did not say, but her faith in Jesus and her humbleness in spirit got her daughter whole; this is what we will call grace, an unmerited favor of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Fruits of thoughts, brethren, this is a lesson of both faith and humility;  (i)  enormous faith in Jesus, can move mountains and perform miracles; regardless of what is going on today in our lives, let us have faith in Jesus; and humbly pray or petitions unto him with faith in his righteousness, it does not matter how difficult our troubles may be, in the eyes of Jesus, they are nothing and by his words all troubles will disappear with the oblivion by his Crucifixion on the cross of Calvary;  the Greek Sy-ro-phe-ni'cian woman had faith in Jesus and she was given the grace to partake of the bread of life from the table, which was might for Christ's chosen generation and royal priesthood, and did not eat the bread crumbs from under the table; for, she receive her miracle right away because of her faith in Jesus:  (ii)  humbleness pays, the woman had good seeds within her spirits, to realize that she does not deserve any favors from Jesus, but for him to just heal her demonic afflicted daughter and with humbleness, Jesus could not turn her away empty handed but sent his words to heal her daughters demonic affliction.


CONCLUSION:

Brethren, today, regardless of what is going on negatively in our lives; let us be rest assured that Jesus, is aware of all things concerning humanity, saved or unsaved; he is available for everyone who will call upon him in faith;  therefore, let us not sit down and hope for our troubles to go away whenever; for whenever could take several weeks or months to manifest positively; however, if we take faith steps like the Greek, a Sy-ro-phe-ci,an woman did to get help from Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior to heal her daughter's demonic affliction, seek the face of Jesus with humbleness, pray and supplicate unto him; and know that he hears our utterances and if he hears us, then he will do miracles to change our troubles around for better because we believe and trust in him; and by his grace, things will be well with us again forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE: (KJV.)  JOHN 7:37-39 (37)  In the last day, that great day of the feast,  Jesus stood and cried, saying,  If any man thirst, let him come ...

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  JOHN 7:37-39

(37)  In the last day, that great day of the feast,  Jesus stood and cried, saying,  If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
(38)  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said,  out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
(39)  (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive:  for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)


RIVERS OF LIVING WATERS

Case in point, (37)  In the last day, that great day of the feast,  Jesus stood and cried, saying,  If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink  Brethren, Jesus was a Jew, descendant of King David, therefore, he celebrated all the feasts of the Jews as commanded in the law of Moses while on earth; on the last day of a feast of the tabernacles, refer to Leviticus 23:36;   Jesus stood up and spoke with a loud voice that anyone who was thirsty should come unto him for rivers of living water.

Jesus spoke about living waters in the text but was actually referring to the pureness of his spiritual attributes:  from creation spirits of the Father which moves on the waters has been the only source of human existence; through his spirit we are able to receive inspirations of wisdom, knowledge and understanding from the Father to do all things;  it is the same spirit that Jesus ministered through to humanity while on earth: in verse thirty-seven of this text, Jesus called humanity to come unto him to receive rivers of attributes and pureness of the Father through his spirits to impart unto humanity.


WORDS OF INSPIRATION:

Points to ponder,  let us study the following verse in segments;  (38)  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said,  out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.  (i)    He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said,  First of all, to believe in him, we have to know who he is and what the scriptures says about him; let us refer to the gospel of John Chapter 11:25,.Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. So Jesus is the resurrection and the life, we know who he is now; therefore, let us believe in him; if we do,  (ii) out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.  Secondly, Jesus said, if we believe in him, out of our bellies will flow rivers of living waters;  Jesus was referring to the source of all rivers from the Spirits of the Father within our innermost spirits, the one special source where all rivers of life originates will flow his spiritual powers and attributes through our lives to nourish all souls into salvation grace and life everlasting.

Fruits of thoughts, (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)  Believers, Jesus did not speak about physical usable rivers or streams of waters; but referred to fruits of the innermost pureness of spirits with attributes of the Father; in Galatians 5:22-23   But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,..Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.  Jesus, wanted to impart both his divinely and humanly attributes into his followers to impart unto other believers, unbelievers to receive salvation and eternity; for during his ministry, the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit (the comforter) had not yet been given unto believers; for Jesus was still alive on earth and had not completed his assignment yet or ascended unto heaven to receive glorification from the Father forevermore.


CONCLUSION:

Brethren,  today, we read about Christ's invitation to partake of his living waters; as believers, at times we feel dryness in our spirits; what do we do when we are spiritually thirsty?  First of all we have to get to the roots of our hearts; for the Holy Spirits resides in our hearts and ask ourselves, what is going on within our innermost spirits? where have we erred?  are we fellow shipping with the Lord enough? are we reading his words daily?  are we harboring any hurts and not forgiving our offenders?  All these points may cause spiritual dryness within our innermost spirits and we will lack springs of living waters within our souls; beloved, if we ever experience any dryness in spirit, the true living water is Christ, both his divinely and humanly attributes are available through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit; let us ask for more spiritual anointing of the Holy Spirit; and receive flows of living waters with attributes of the Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  JOHN 21:15-17

(15)  So when they had dined,  Jesus saith to Simon Peter,  Simon, son of Jo'nas,  lovest thou me more than these?  He saith unto him,  Yea,  Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.  He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
(16)  He saith to him again the second time,  Simon, son of Jo'nas, lovest thou me?  He saith unto him,  Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.  He saith unto him,  Feed my sheep.
(17)  He saith unto him the third time,  Simon, son of Jo'nas, lovest thou me?  Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time,  Lovest thou me?  And he said unto him,  Lord,  thou knowest all things;  thou knowest that I love thee.  Jesus saith unto him,  Feed my sheep.


DO YOU REALLY LOVE ME?

Simon Peter had the urge to go fishing at the sea of Ti-be-ria, some of his colleagues decided to go with him but that night they caught nothing until day break, Jesus stood at the shore watching them but they did not know who he was, he asked them if they had caught anything yet?  They answered nothing, he asked them to cast their net on the right side of the ship to which they obeyed him and caught a hundred and fifty-three fishes unbelievable! however, before Jesus started to talk to them, Jesus had already started a fire of coal and had a fish and bread, he invited them to breakfast with him, at that point they are aware of him but said nothing;

Case in point,  (15)  So when they had dined,  Jesus saith to Simon Peter,  Simon, son of Jo'nas, lovest thou me more than these?  He saith unto him,  Yea,  Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.  He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.  Jesus was up to something; after the breakfast, he asked Simon Peter, if he actually loved him more than catching those fishes, Simon Peter answered, yes Lord, you know that I love you, Jesus said unto him, Give food to my lambs; let us look at few points, (i) First of all, if Peter loved Jesus as he claimed, why was he not spreading the gospel to unbelievers to save souls into eternity but thinking about his own sustenance and catching fishes after Jesus ascended to heaven?  (ii)  Secondly, did not Jesus already called him out of fishing to follow him so he can be fishers of men? (Matt. 4:18,19).  (iii) Thirdly, during three years of Jesus ministry, was not Peter and rest of the disciples taken care of and did not had to worry about their sustenance?  then how come when Jesus left, Peter now lack faith that he will still be taken care off, if he continues to spreads the gospel?  but wanted to get back to fishing business to which Jesus had already called him out of into his ministry; however, Jesus knows the hearts of men and will not allow Peter to fail to accomplish his mission, so came that morning to get the assurance from him that he would care more about preaching the gospel than fishing to make a living.


WORDS OF INSPIRATION:

Points to ponder,  (16)  He saith to him again the second time,  Simon, son of Jo'nas, lovest thou me?  He saith unto him,  Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.  He saith unto him,  Feed my sheep. Jesus, wanted to make sure that Simon Peter was certain of what he was saying to him; remember it was the same Simon Peter, who assured Jesus at the Passover table that he was willing to go to prison and to die with him but when troubles came upon Jesus, he denied him three times. (Luke Chapter. 22); therefore, Jesus asked if he loves him over and over again, to be certain that Peter does get the point, not to seek his own agenda but to be mindful of spreading the good news to save souls for eternity.  (17)  He saith unto him the third time,  Simon, son of Jo'nas, lovest thou me?  Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time,  Lovest thou me?  And he said unto him,  Lord,  thou knowest all things;  thou knowest that I love thee.  Jesus saith unto him,  Feed my sheep.  Jesus asked him the same question again the third time, but Peter became upset within his heart because Jesus asked him the same question three times; but Jesus did that for lack of trust in Peter, because at the Passover feast table, he pledged his allegiance to Jesus that he would never deny him but when persecutions trails and sufferings came upon Jesus Christ, and he was questioned by some of his persecutors if he knew and was with him, Peter denied him before men three times and the cock crewed for Jesus's prophesy to be fulfilled;  Peter was selfish in this aspect, he thought about his own safety and not of Jesus his master to save himself from perishing for righteousness sake.

Fruits of thoughts, Simon Peter was the same disciple who denied Jesus three times that he knew him not during his trails; therefore, Jesus knew his heart that he is not faithful;  Peter was supposed to continue with the ministry of saving souls for Christ, for Jesus already assured him in Matthew 16:18; that he is a rock upon which he will built his church:  if he does loved Jesus truly, why did he go fishing with other disciples that morning and not fishing souls with the gospel?   because, Peter was self centered, and thought about his welfare instead of welfare of others;  in Luke 22:35; Jesus questioned his disciples before his trails started, if they lacked anything when he was with them; in other words, Jesus wanted them to know that he is going away but they will still not lack anything,if they continue to do his will;  but Simon Peter the rock on which Jesus will built his church, needed to be encouraged again by Jesus at the seashore of Ti-be-ria to focus on the great commission and not on fishes of the sea or his own sustenance.


CONCLUSION:

Dearly beloved, what is our focuses today in the faith of the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?  Are we focusing on our own self agendas as Simon Peter did at the Sea of Ti-be-ria, when he was commissioned to spread the gospel to save souls for eternity?  If Jesus Christ shows up to dine with us today;  what questions will he ask his believers?  followers, let us be more caring and feed the sheep, lambs and even goats and bring them all to the pasture of our heavenly Father and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  JOHN 16:23-24

(23)  And in that day ye shall ask me nothing.  Verily, verily,  I say unto you.  Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
(24)  Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name:  ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.


ASK AND YE SHALL RECEIVE!

Case in point,  (23) And in that day ye shall ask me nothing.  Verily, verily,  I say unto you. Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Brethren, in this Chapter, Jesus ministered to his disciples, to prepare and comfort them, for his sufferings and departure from the world into his heavenly kingdom;  he encouraged them not to be sorrowful with despairing attitudes, for what will come upon them, while the world rejoice, but he will see them again and their sorrows will be turned into happiness; however, on that day, they will not be able to ask him questions but he assured them that whatsoever, they will ask the Father in his name, will be granted unto them.

Points to ponder, let us look at this verse in segments,  (24)  Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name:  ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. Jesus went on to say,  (i)  Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name:  How come until now, you have not requested for anything in my name; therefore, let us be encourage to channel all our prayer requests to the Father through the Holy Name of Jesus!  For through his name, the Father is obligated to listen to our prayer requests and grant our hearts desires;  (ii)  ask, and ye shall receive,  we are to ask your heart desires with faith knowing that the Father can hear us and listening to our prayers; then our good heart desires will be given unto us; however, sometimes our prayers are not answered right away for reasons best known to the Father; today, if there are any unanswered prayers still lingering on our prayer lists, let us be encouraged to trust the Father's will and know that he will surely answer all prayers within his will at appointed times through the name of Jesus our Lord and Savior;  let us not give up or lose hope but continue to trust the master's will forevermore;  (iii)   that your joy may be full.  let us be encourage again, that there are merry making days ahead of believers who have prayed, to the Father through the name of Jesus and are still waiting for answers to petitions from the throne of grace, to have patience, for there are appointed times still ahead, when the Father will answer all prayers; on that day, there will be praises of happiness, joy, thanksgivings and peace everlasting.

Fruits of thoughts, all believers and followers of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, at times in thier walk of faiths, have had unanswered prayers; per today'a text, all prayers are supposed to receive answers right away, if we pray them in faith through the Name of Jesus; however, at times though we pray to the Father through the Name of Jesus, our prayers are still not being answered; why? (a)  maybe or maybe not we asked those heart desires for wrong reasons;  James said,  Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.  (James 4:3)  (b) at times, there are waiting periods, and we just have to wait for answers to come at appropriate times best known to the Father; (c)  at times, reasons why prayer petitions are delayed are known only to the Father; sometimes prayer answers are held back for seasons best in our interest; for the Father will not answer prayers that he knows will endanger and destruct our lives after we receive answers to those prayers;  (d)  sometimes, prayers are not answered simply because our requests are not in the will of the Father;  for example, if we pray to break up marriages so we can marry their spouses, believe me the Father will not answer those prayers or such evil prayers, and we can pray, fast and do vigils all we want, the Father will not listen or answer those prayers but will rather punish us for trying to break up homes that he had put together;  therefore, believers, let us ask wisely and in the will of the Father so we can receive the promises of the Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.


CONCLUSION:

Dearly beloved, let us pray to the Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior everyday, but, let us not ask for wrong heart desires but bring all our petitions in alignment with the scriptures; if our heart desires are not given to us in timely manners, maybe, they are not in the will of the Father or times are not appropriate yet to receive answers to those prayers; in these circumstances, let us continue to trust the Father still and wait for appointed times and know that the righteous Father is still in control of our lives;  for Apostle Paul said, faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it. (1 Thessalonians 5:24)  Therefore, let us be encouraged to have faith in the Father regardless of our circumstances through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  ST. LUKE 4:40-43

(40)  Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.
(41)  And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying,  Thou art Christ the Son of God.  And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak:  for they knew that he was Christ.
(42)  And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not depart from them.
(43)  And he said unto them,  I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also:  for therefore am I sent.


PREACH THE KINGDOM OF GOD!

Case in point,  (40)  Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them.  Brethren, we all know that Jesus performed lots of miracles during his ministries on planet earth by casting out demonic spirits and healing many afflictions:  believers can also perform the same miracles as Jesus did, but the question is, do we have enough faith to command demonic spirits to obey our authorities to heal the sick and make the blind see or do we have just enough faith to walk in the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?  At one point, in Jesus ministry, he rebuked the devil out of a son of a man, his disciples questioned him why they tried to perform the same miracle, on the same son of man but was unsuccessful?  Jesus said,  Because of your unbelief: for verily,  I say unto you,  If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain,  Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. (Matt. 17:20). Power point, believers, if we are not equip enough with faith to cast out demonic spirits, let us not try to exercise authorities over them; for they know our spiritual capabilities and they will fight back to disgrace us as they did to the seven sons of Sce'va the Jew, (Acts 19:13-17).

Points to ponder,  (41)  And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying,  Thou art Christ the Son of God.  And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak:  for they knew that he was Christ. Praise Jesus!  Who is this person that even the devils recognize him, fear him and cry out to him as the Son of the Living Father?  but Jesus rebuked them to be quiet and obey him:  believers we are equip with the same resurrection powers of the Holy Spirit from Jesus Christ; therefore, we have the same authorities to perform the same miracles that Jesus performed during his ministry on earth;  the question is, are we exercising our authorities over demonic afflictions or putting our trust in scientific solutions?  Do not get me wrong, scientific solutions are wonderful; but let us not forget to call the healer divine also for spiritual healing interventions;  for 1 Peter 2:24 says, Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness:  BY WHOSE STRIPES YE WERE HEALED.


WORDS OF INSPIRATION:

Fruits of thoughts,  (42)  And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place: and the people sought him, and came unto him, and stayed him, that he should not depart from them. (43)  And he said unto them,  I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also:  for therefore am I sent. Brethren, notice in the text that when Jesus worked the Father's will, after awhile, he will retreat himself into a secret place to rest and seek his Father's face, and to hear his voice;  in verse (42) of the text, Jesus retreated into the desert area; but, the multitude will always fish him out wherever he chooses to hide himself, they sought him on that day and found him in the desert place, but he told them that he was not to be in one place alone, but was to introduce the firmament of the Father to other vicinity the same ways; because that was the reason why he came to planet earth;  what was the reason he came?  the reason was to preach the Kingdom of God unto humanity!  Blessed be his Holy Name!.  Believers, let us also seek the Father's face sometimes in the faith through fasting (optional), prayers and supplications and try not lean on our own strengths and understandings but lean completely on him alone and allow his powerful hands to strengthen our faiths in his righteousness until end of days.


CONCLUSION:

Dearly beloved,  today, Jesus is still working miracles on planet earth through his followers by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit;  therefore, we are all capable of working his miracles, signs, and wonders; the question is, do we have enough faith to exercise our authorities to do so?  if we are willing and obedient to carry out the ministry of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, let us ask for abundant faith and Holy Ghost empowerment to do miracles, signs and wonders for his glorification forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

(KJV.)  Acts 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that, the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  JOHN 3:5-7

(5)  Jesus answered,  Verily, verily,  I say unto thee,  Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
(6)  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
(7)  Marvel not that I said unto thee,  Ye must be born again.


YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!

Brethren, Nicodemus the Pharisees, ruler of the Jews, came to Jesus secretly at night to prove him as a teacher approved of the Father to do those miracles that he saw him performed;  Jesus said unto him, unless a man be born again, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God;  Nicodemus then said unto Jesus, How can a man be born when he is old?  He cannot enter a second time into his mothers womb and be born, can he?

Case in point,  (5)  Jesus answered,  Verily, verily,  I say unto thee,  Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  Beloved, to be born of water (baptism) was introduced by John the Baptist to end dictates of the law given by Moses and to transition the people into expectation of the greater redeemer of all souls, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior:  who was to revive humanity with resurrection powers of the Holy Spirit (baptism) into life everlasting; so, water and Spirit are very important substances in believers walk of faith;  how?  To have eternal life, (i)  First of all, we have to believe in Jesus Christ as Son of the Father:  (ii)  Secondly, we have to receive him into our hearts as Lord and Savior, (iii)  Lastly, to complete the process of regeneration, we have to be baptized into the faith of his righteousness.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Points to ponder,  (6)  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.  Brethren, humanity is born in flesh, with spirits, souls and bodies;  however, when we are born again, we receive newer spirits from the Father into our innermost spirits to transform our lives into the image of Jesus Christ to walk in godliness into eternity:  also, through Christ, we receive newer spirits by accepting, believing in him as our Lord and Savior, but accepting and believing in him alone does not complete the process to inherit eternal lives; there is one more steps to take in him and that is to be baptized into the faith of his righteousness, and that sanctification process will open doors of our inner spirits to receive the pureness of the Father and to regenerate our spirits to walk in his righteousness into life everlasting.   (7)  Marvel not that I said unto thee,  Ye must be born again.  Jesus said, believers should not be surprised, that he said we need spiritual rebirths; for everyone that is born again will also receive supernatural powers beyond human imaginations from the Father to do his will; therefore, it is necessary for believers to be born again.


CONCLUSION:

Brethren, we thank Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior for sending the comforter resurrection power of the Holy Spirit unto humanity;  if we have not yet receive rebirths, let us believe and receive him into our hearts as Lord and Savior, be baptized to wash away the filthiness of the old man, receive into our innermost spirits pureness of the Father and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

(KJV.)  Acts 2:38  The Peter said unto them,  Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE: (KJV.)  1 CORINTHIANS 6:17-20 (17)  But he that is joined unto thee Lord is one spirit. (18)  Flee fornication.  Every sin that a man doe...

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  1 CORINTHIANS 6:17-20

(17)  But he that is joined unto thee Lord is one spirit.
(18)  Flee fornication.  Every sin that a man doeth is without the body;  but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
(19)  What?  know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God,  and ye are not your own?
(20)  For ye are bought with a price:  therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.


BELOVED, FLEE FORNICATION!

Brethren, as believers in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, let us try to always preserve our bodies in sanctification unto him: for organically we are in reunion with him through the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit and by our believes in him as Lord and Savior:  for, we receive the pureness of him into our spirits the moment we receive him as Lord and Savior, believe in him, and were baptized into the faith of his righteousness, and our spirits are now regenerated by his spirit within our souls; therefore, let us be aware of how we use our sanctified bodies in other to honor him in his holiness within our spirits.

Case in point, what is fornication?  per Webster dictionary, it is consensual sexual intercourse between two persons not married to each other:  Not married to each other?  Believers, let us refrain from such gestures if we are not married yet to anyone, let us not engage ourselves into these kinds of actions or allow predators to lure us into sinning against ourselves;  for, we are saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, and the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit lives within our inner spirits and we are in one spirit with him; therefore, our bodies are temples of pureness for our heavenly Father's abode; for we grieve his spiritual pureness within our souls when we engage in such immoralities; therefore, let us do our best to refrain from desires of the flesh; for the enemy knows the weaknesses of humanity, and from generations to generations humanity falls short of the glory of the Father in this area of our lives because of lusts of the flesh brought upon our souls by the enemy;  in verse eighteen of the text, Apostle Paul said, that when we trespass, normally it is against the Father;  but, when we fornicate or commit adultery, we trespass in opposition to our own selves; therefore, let us be in spirit and stay in spirit and not give in to temptations of lusts of the flesh to defile the pureness of the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit within our spirits by which we are sealed until day of redemption.


WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT:

Points to ponder, we may ask ourselves, what is the big deal, the Father gave us this pleasure, why can not we enjoy it?  Beloved, there is nothing wrong with enjoying gifts of pleasure implanted in our feelings and emotions by our heavenly Father;  what is wrong is when we take those actions illegally, yielding to temptations of the enemy to allow our feelings and emotions drive our minds into sinning against our own bodies by engaging ourselves in immoral behaviors not sanctioned by the scriptures: we may or might not have defiled ourselves ever, that is wonderful!  However, some of us at some points of our lives have trespass against ourselves, but we have Christ now living within our souls and our iniquities are forgiven forever; therefore, let us walk in the righteousness of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  Brethren, let us not worry or feel condemned about the issue,  Jesus is encouraging his believers to know who we are in him, his spirit implanted within their hearts. souls and bodies when they receive him as Lord and Savior; be ware that they are not alone, consider and cherish his presence as parts of their mortal bodies and keep them in holiness for his use to transform their lives into his image for glorification of our heavenly Father.  In Apostle Paul's letter to the Galatians 4:9; "But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak, and beggarly elements where unto ye desire again to be in bondage?  Dearly beloved, we know the truth now, let us abide in the truth forevermore.

Fruits of thoughts, brethren, the Holy Spirits are in our spirits, our spirits are within our mortal bodies therefore, our bodies becomes his temples and dwelling places: when we trespass against our bodies we trespass against him;  however, there are seconds, thirds and forth chances given to believers by Christ to make things right with him in the faith of his righteousness; however, no one knows exactly when trumpets shall sound from heavenly places for day of rapture and Christ's Second Coming to planet earth; therefore, let us bear fruits of repentance now by walking in his righteousness, preserve our sanctified bodies, spirits and souls in holiness forevermore.


CONCLUSION: 

Beloved, all desires of the flesh was supposed to be done away with by the blood of Jesus when we receive him into our hearts; today, Apostle Paul is encouraging us to be ware of the craftiness of the enemy to lure us into sinning against our own bodies by yielding to temptations of our fleshly desires;  for we are sanctified vessels set asides to allow the Father who dwells in us to occupy our bodies and express himself through our bodies and to transform us into the image of Christ; for that reason, we are to exercise severe control over our bodies to bring them into subjection of dictates of the Holy Spirit and presenting to the Father as a living sacrifice; whenever we trespass against ourselves in ungodly manners, we grieve the indwelling powers of the Holy Spirit:  however, if we are in tune with the Holy Spirit, as soon as we trespass against him, he will convict us right away to bring us into repentance, forgiveness, sanctification and restoration into fellowship with him again in his righteousness into life everlasting.  Amen and Amen!


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

(KJV.)  Romans 12:1  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIF

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIF: (KJV.)  2 PETER 3:3-7 (3)  Knowing this first,  that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts. (4)  And ...

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  2 PETER 3:3-7

(3)  Knowing this first,  that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts.
(4)  And saying,  Where is the promises of his coming?  for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
(5)  For this they willingly as ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
(6)  Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
(7)  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.


SURELY, JESUS IS COMING BACK AGAIN!

Brethren, as believers, we are not to allow unbelievers with doubtful minds mock at us regarding our believes in the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, or try to derail us from the faith that we should not pay attentions to the truth of his promises and events surrounding the end times.

Case in point, let us study the text together;  (3)  Knowing this first,  that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts.  Apostle Peter is saying that we are to be conscious of events surrounding end times; for there will be mockers, who will yearn after strong sinful desires of the flesh and will not believe the scriptures;  let us not be influenced by those individuals but believe in the Lord and in his words.  (4)  And saying,  Where is the promises of his coming?  for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.  Evil men will say, we have heard that sayings before but where is the signs and hope of his coming?  for, before our forefathers, and from start point of creation the world is the same, and it will never change, and there is nothing new under the Sun!  Brethren, let us not listen to their discords;  for humanity is not on the same time table with the Father, and he is never late on his promises to his children, Jesus said, But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. (Matt. 24:36).


WORDS OF INSPIRATION:

Points to ponder,  (5)  For this they willingly as ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:  brethren, what we fail to realize is that our Father spoke the heavens into existence, while the waters covered the face of the whole earth; again, he spoke to the waters to move off from the face of the earth and gather into one place, so dry land could surface and it was so, the earth came up from out of the standing waters and still surrounded by the waters today. (Genesis 1);  Mystery of the Father of all creation; who can understand his ways?  Beloved, let those who are with doubtful minds, continue to doubt his ways; believers, let us continues to trust in his spoken words; for they are alive and will manifest at appointed times best known to him alone; for he has given his promises to humanity regarding the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; and so will it manifest at appointed times! (6)  Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:  if the Father does not know exactly what he is doing with his own creation;  the question is, how come the world which was completely filled with water from beginning of creation did not change its form or slowly break away by natural processes until the Father spoke to the waters to effect the change?  for, the ways of the Father are mysterious to accomplish his works, and no one can determine his ways forever. Currently, Jesus Christ in control of everything and knows exactly what is going on with the entire universe.

Fruits of thoughts,  this verse is very informative to humanity;  (7)  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.  However, the existing heavens and earth which was created by our Father from spoken words of his mouth are now maintain and kept with fire for future use on dooms day, to be utilize as eternal damnation for immoral and evil spirits;  therefore, believers, let us not get derail by evil men into fire of Hades.


CONCLUSION:

Dearly beloved, let us be careful who we associate with; for by their words, we will determine if they have the same believes that we have or not;  regardless, we are to love them still but do our best to win them over to the faith in the righteousness of Jesus Christ, if for some reason, we are not able to do so; let us pray for them and take care that they do not win us over into believing wrong believes and behaviors, that there is no Second Coming of Jesus Christ or judgment day, that it is alright to run after fleshly desires of the enemy into damnation; rather, let us walk in the spirit and believe in Jesus, resist all temptations of the enemy and he will flee away from us by the redemption blood of Jesus forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!


QUOTE OF THE DAY:
