DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  PROVERBS 3:5-6


(5)  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;  and lean not unto thine own understanding.
(6)  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.


TRUST ME, I KNOW WHAT I AM DOING!


Brethren, to trust in the LORD, is to have confidence in him, believe that he is reliable, good, honest and worthy of our reverences, praises and adoration.

In the above text, King Solomon is saying to humanity, (i)  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;  as believers, in the faith of the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; though we are sure of our standings, know who we are in the body of Christ, try our best to honor words of our Father; at times when unexpected negative situations arises, we tremble, panic, overcome with fear, lose hope, have anxieties and became sorrowful; however, what we need to realized is, phenomenons do not happen to believers without the approvals of Jesus Christ; whether we receive good or bad news, they are in the will of our Father;  therefore, we ought to trust him with all our hearts; in our prayers assure him of our intentions to trust him, regardless of how things may turn out, we will still believe that he is in control and had conquered every mountain of difficulties, that we are waiting for its manifestations and deliverance from our negative situations; for, it is one thing to say we trust in our Father with words of our mouths, but are shaken, when our emotions has to solidified with trust, that is when we really feel deserted and forsaken by Jesus Christ, lose hope and fall away from the faith because of distrust in our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  whatever is going on today, let us continue to trust in the LORD!

However,  King Solomon is saying to humanity; (ii)  and lean not unto thine own understanding: why?;  because, many times, when negative situations arises in our lives, they arise for reasons unknown to human perspectives but may be wills of our Father; in human perspectives, negative circumstances are trouble waters, brought upon by the enemy, to cast us down deeply, to points where we cannot swim through those waters safely unto peaceful shores; however, in heavenly perspectives, believer's negative situations, may be hands of our Father, holding scissors, trimming, pruning our souls, to be perfect and walk uprightly before him; therefore, King Solomon said, "lean not on your own understanding";  if we pay more attention to passed storms and life experiences; we will see how far our Father had transformed our lives, unless we are not counting our blessings; as we go through one thing or another, whether those situations are from his hands or from hands of our enemies, as believers, he will pick us up from where we have fallen and reshape our lives, make us better than who we were before; for he is the porter, we are the clay, in his hands, if we are not perfect before him, he can decide to crush the clay in his hands again, redo, mold, shape his vessels, put them in the furnace of fire, burn them until they are refined; thereafter, bring them out as finish vessels for his glory; what do we have to say about this?;  nothing, absolutely nothing, but cooperate with the master builder that he knows what he doing, trust him, pray fervently, read his words and wait  patiently for him.

Case in point;  King Solomon went on to say that;  (a)  In all thy ways acknowledge him;  that is to say that we ought to accept and do not deny the truth or existence of our Father, his Son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; but trust him with all our hearts, souls and bodies; that in all situations, we are certain that we are not forsaken; for, Jesus is in perfect control of our lives; therefore, we ought to thank our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior everyday, regardless of how we feel in our situations, whether good or bad, there are reasons behind all occurrences in life; but only our Father knows about all things in his Sovereignty; therefore, let us be still and know that he is our Father, who dearly loves and cares about his children, he will never forsake them, but will help them in all situations, if they call upon him;  let us be thankful and appreciate him, do his will with perfect hearts and willingness of minds; praise his Holy Name forever; for we really have no understandings why things happen the way they do on this planet earth; however, Jesus Christ is in perfect control of all things in his jurisdiction, we dwell in his presence, he will set things in rightful perspectives at the appointed time by his grace, if we acknowledge him as Lord and Savior of this world;  (b)  and he shall direct thy paths;  if we allow Jesus Christ into our hearts as the Lord and Savior of our lives, trust him with all our undertakings, lean not on our own self efforts to accomplish anything in life, but lean completely on the Holy Spirit's guidance and inspirations, believe that he has already taken control of our lives and will not leave us alone, or allow us to fall away from him, but walk uprightly in his righteousness, all things shall be well with us by his grace forevermore.


CONCLUSION:


Dearly beloved, let us trust in our Father, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, do good unto others, so we may possess covenanted blessings; give our lives totally unto him, be restful, have peace, wait patiently for him: and not strive, worry or become agitated when things go wrong; if things go wrong in believers lives; they are meant to be rightful tools for glorification of our Father and by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, those things are already corrected into proper alignments with our Father's will; therefore, let us trust and believe in him forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  1 CORINTHIANS 10:13


(13)  There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man:  but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able;  but will with the temptation also make a way to escape,  that ye may be able to bear it.


GOD IS FAITHFUL!


Brethren, in this chapter, Apostle Paul encouraged believers not to be lustful after evil things of this fallen world, worshiping their own heart desires, committing sinful sexual desires, going against the doctrine of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and complaining about his will in our lives; rather, if we have known the truthfulness of matters, that we are called out of darkness into his marvelous light, as witnesses of his words, and are walking in his righteousness; then, let us be careful, beware to resist enemy temptations, lest we fall when persecutions, reproaches, trail and tribulations befalls us in the faith of his righteousness.

However, in the above text, Apostle Paul said, (i)  There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: that is, on this earth, there are no pressures infiltrating our minds, design by the enemy, to create wrongful thoughts which will eventually lead to wrongful actions, but all thoughts of evil, have occurred to humanity before, from generations to generations; temptations has prevail against humanity; in other words, nothing is new, so far as the enemy temptations are concerned, he lures humanity into trespasses,by his lies and deceitfulness; in the garden of Eden, though our Father specifically commanded Adam and Eve not to eat fruits from the tree of knowledge of good and evil to bring death upon humanity; in the book of Genesis chapter 3,, Satan lied to Eve, to taste of the forbidden fruit, which our Father had commanded them not to eat of; Eve yelled to Satan lies, ate the forbidden fruit, gave to Adam her companion to eat as well, they both disobeyed our Father, trespassed  against him, and through their disobedience to his commandments, sin and death came upon humanity; for it is written in the book of Romans 6:23; "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life."; therefore, as believers, we need to be in spirit at all times, be watchful to resist temptations of the devil, think thoroughly about our actions and behaviors, seek the face of our Father in prayers regarding infiltrating thoughts of our minds; positive or negative thoughts, and especially, provoking thoughts to do evil; such as confrontations, arguments, fights, murder, etc.; let us be aware that voice of the Holy Spirit will never provoke anyone to do evil or disobey words of our Father; those are attributes of the devil; therefore, let us beware of his craftiness and deceitful infiltration spirits;  before we take positives or negatives actions concerning ourselves or others, let us apply spirits of discernment to know exactly what to do and at what time to do so; if we lack any, Jesus Christ is offering it for free; let us pray, ask, opened up our hearts and receive his wisdom, knowledge and understandings forevermore.

Case in point,  (ii)  but God is faithful; who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; thank you Lord!  our Father is faithful!; regardless of what the enemy does to derail humanity, let us know for sure that the enemy has his own limits, he cannot go any further than the limits our Father gives him, and if our Father has not given him the grace to pester with his children, he cannot, and if he tries to harm them, he will fail,; for Jesus Christ will rebuke him; and if he has permission from our Father to torment our lives, such as he did with Job; he has limits and cannot go beyond those limits; therefore, as believers, if we are in certain types of troubles and cannot understand what is going on, let us not worry ourselves but trust our Father that he is aware of what is going on; and be patient, pray and wait for his deliverance; for there are nothing new that the enemy can do, that Jesus Christ cannot stop him from accomplishing it; let us wait upon the Lordf for it is written in the book of Isaiah 40:31 "But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."

Brethren, Apostle Paul said;  (iii)  but will with the temptation also make a way to escape,  that ye may be able to bear it.; therefore, when pressures thoughts of evils infiltrates our minds, to leads us into trespasses against our Father, and the evil hands of the enemy; though troubles of this life may seem to prevail against us, our Father is merciful and gracious, he does not keep his anger forever; but through our temptations and troubles, he will also make ways in which we will be strengthen by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit to be able to handle all situations regardless of what might be going on negatively in our lives; for, our Father love his children dearly, and Jesus cares about what happens to his brothers and sisters in the faith of his righteousness; that is the reason why, he offered himself as a sacrificial lamb to be slaughtered to take away iniquities of this world; if we are in negative situations today; let us not worry too much about what is going on, but rather pray without ceasing, trust in Jesus Christ that he is aware of all situations, that he already conquered all things for humanity by his death and resurrection, the enemy has been defeated forevermore, let us know that there is time for everything on earth and endure sufferings as soldiers of Christ; for it is written in the book of Romans 8:18, "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.  therefore, let us have patience, wait on the LORD, for when our sufferings are over, his glories shall be revealed, all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it; and so shall it be in Jesus Holy Name.  Amen!


CONCLUSION:

Dearly beloved, regardless of how sinful we are or have been in the past, it does not matter to Jesus; today, if we have not receive him into our hearts, confess with our mouths that he is our Lord and Savior, it is time to do and have salvation and life everlasting; for our Father is faithful, merciful and gracious; though Adam and Eve disobeyed him in the garden of Eden, he kept them alive and cloth their nakedness; though Cain killed his brother Abel because jealousy, our Father protected his life against any predator on earth; though we were sinners Jesus Christ died for all our iniquities;  therefore, regardless of our short comings; our Father is always faithful, we just have to call upon him in trouble times, admit that we have messed up; Jesus will come to our rescues, let us not feel like failures, condemn and our lives are over; it is not over yet, until Jesus Christ says it is over; there are blessings coming after the dark clouds of troubles moves away from our souls; for Jesus our advocate already pleaded our cases before our faithful father, all things will be well again by his grace and peace forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  2 CORINTHIANS 13:5-7


(5)  Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith;  prove your own selves.  Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
(6)  But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.
(7)  Now I pray to God that ye do no evil;  not that we should appear approved,  but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates.


CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON!


Brethren, in the above text, Apostle Paul advises believers to inspect carefully what their attitudes and behaviors are in the faith of the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, to determine if they are truly Christians, show that they possess godly attributes; be certain that they know who they are in the faith, that the spirit of Jesus Christ dwells richly in them; except they have declared ourselves as sinners?;  may God forbid!;  it is easy to call ourselves believers, carry our bibles to go church on worship days, for the world to see that we are of faith, and walk in righteousness;  however, that alone does not make us true believers; true believers have to show the attributes of our Father, and of Jesus Christ; sharing his love, forgiveness, mercies, compassion and deliverance etc...;  all these are his attributes, if we have the Holy Spirit, and are walking in his righteousness, then automatically, we should possess these same attributes; as believers, if we find ourselves caught up in any ungodly behaviors, such as murdering, enviousness, hatred,, gossiping, back-biting, drunkenness, stealing, swearing falsely, fornicating, committing adultery etc....we have erred from the faith of the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; believers, the check engine light is on; we need to double check ourselves, make rightful turns back to Jesus Christ; because we were once sinners, but are no longer categorized as sinners because of shed blood of Jesus on cross of Calvary; he paid for all our iniquities, past, present and future sins; therefore, he understands our present situations, and not condemning anyone on this earth now, but giving everyone second, third, fourth chances to amend our ways and receive salvation, free grace and life everlasting.

Case in point,  as believers, we are being tested regarding our faiths at all times; what we have to realized is, when we pass testing periods successfully, we upgrade ourselves into next level of our faith into our destinations; however, if we fail any test, we have second, third, and fourth chances to retake those tests over; when we are being tested and for some reasons, we fail any test, let us not feel condemn or worry ourselves over things we do not have control over; there are more chances available to retake those tests again by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; because, we are not condemned sinners, but believers walking in the grace of our Father through Jesus Christ; today, what Jesus is saying to humanity and at all times is;  "come unto me, with all your labors and heavy laden, I will give you rest, and go and sin no more!";  we cannot refuse such free grace and peace; therefore, it is time to come to Jesus!

Brethren, after we are redeem by the sacred blood of Jesus, set free from bondage of iniquities into the faith of Jesus Christ;  let us not go back to enslave ourselves or try to prove ourselves to others that we have received the grace of our Father by our own human efforts; but rather, show the world the newer versions of ourselves; that we are redeemed of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, trust and believe in him, walk in his righteousness; let our attitudes and behaviors show who we have become by his grace and resist ungodly ways of our old selves; embrace our newer selves in good faith; in other for the world of darkness to see our lights of glories and give all glories to our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  let us be truthful, trust worthy, bear fruits of righteousness; despite the fact that we were once sinners, we are no longer called sinners but children of our Father, saved by grace; for it is written in the book of Ephesians 2:8, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: therefore, grace is a gift from our Father unto humanity;  let us enjoy this free grace, love one another with the love of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forevermore.


CONCLUSION:


Dearly beloved, in the text of today; Apostles Paul advises all believers, to double check themselves in the faith, of the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  at times, we tend to pass judgments on others; not realizing that we were all sinners saved by grace;  if we analyse what is going on in our lives against the scriptures everyday, we will find out that though we have been saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, we are still sinners, but it only by the blood of Jesus that we have not been consumed by the wrath of our Father; therefore, let us give people, we view as sinners, benefit of doubts, pray for them that someday they will receive awakening spirits, turn away from ungodliness and come into the lights of redemption; therefore, let us leave all judgments to Jesus Christ, there is a day set for judgment; however, to bring others who may be going astray from darkness into lights of redemption, we have to preach truthfulness of matters, allow our voices to be heard on matters leading to damnation of humanity, but do all things with humility and respect for others; state our positive points clearly but without condemnations, for we ourselves were once sinners, but saved by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!

(18)  But there shall not an hair of your head perish.
(19)  In your patience possess ye your souls.


BE PATIENT WITH ME, STAND FIRMLY!


Brethren, to be a follower of Jesus Christ is not easy, but we can do all things through Christ which strengthens our souls.(Philippians 4:13);

In the above text, Jesus spoke to his disciples about signs of the end times, saying; (i) And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake,; at times, we wonder why believers are hated so much in this world, though they try as much as possible to fix in as normal people, behave themselves, live peaceably with others and are cautious about everything they do to please humanity; the more they do their best in this world, the more they are hated, rejected by humanity; today, Jesus is saying to all believers, "expect hatred from all men,"; Jesus did not say to expect hatred from some men but said to expect hated from all men for his name sake;  the fact of the matter is, believers are hated, because they are the lights of this world, the world is full of darkness; when a light enters a place, darkness must disappear; therefore, the world hates believers who are lights of this world;  if they are of this world, the world will love them as his own, but because the are not of this world; the world hates, persecutes and martyr them.

Brethren, let us not be conform to this world to please humanity and derail ourselves from the faith of his righteousness; but follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ; there are reasons why we are hated in this world, and those reasons are because we accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we are children of lights, the world is in darkness, we believe in the one who called us out of darkness to walk in his righteousness and have life everlasting; with such reasons, there are nothing we can do to change our situations around in this world; the only choices we have currently, is to turn away from following Christ; may God forbid!; and even if we decide to backslide from the faith, there are no guarantees that humanity will accept, change their mindsets about who they have known us to be; therefore, let us ask ourselves today, "who are we trying to please?  humanity or our Father?; (ii)  if we chose to win approvals of men by pleasing humanity, we are on wrongful pathways and are not true followers of Jesus Christ, but we lie to our own souls and trespass against our Father; (iii)  if we try to please humanity, there are no other ways to call ourselves believers; for believers are to please Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior, preach the gospel and save souls from world of darkness into salvation, grace and eternity; therefore, let us know who we are, and the freedom given to us by Jesus Christ in this world; have faith in him, wither the storms of life, know that Jesus Christ is on our sides, refuse and reject evil works of men by his Holy Name; regardless of where we find ourselves negatively in this world, let us persevere with faith in his righteousness; for it is written in Luke 6:22, "Blessed are ye when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.";  therefore, we are blessed forever, instead of focusing on our troubles of this world, let us rather think positive, focus on the eternal blessings, know that we are in the will of our Father, his lights of glories are shinning, and he delights in our souls; this is all that really matters in this life.

Brethren, here is the promise of Jesus Christ to all believers; though you are hated of men for righteousness sake,; "But not a hair of your head will perish.";  therefore, we have the assurances not to be afraid, worry ourselves or be dismayed, even though persecutions and martyrdom may prevail against our souls, there is still hope in Jesus Christ and life everlasting; regardless, let us be courageous, stand firmly on faith grounds, and in the face of adversities, troubles and dangers for righteousness sake, with spirits of boldness, braveness and courageousness as David; for Jesus Christ is always on our sides to empower and strengthen us to take down our enemies by his Holy Name; for it is written in the book of Samuel 17:45, "Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied,"  this is what we call confidence, boldness in our Father;  therefore, let us take lessons from David, and not be timid Christians, but be bold as David the righteous servant of our Father; for is is written in the book of Proverbs 28:1; "The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion."; it is one thing to be bold, and another thing to move forward and act with boldness; Jesus Christ is still seeking brave and bold Christian believers who will not fear any foes when being persecuted for righteousness sake, but will stand firmly no matter what prevails against them;  today, let us ask for spirits of boldness, to face our enemies for the glorification of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; in 1 Samuel 17:46, David acted with boldness, he choose five smooth stones out of the brook, face the Goliath the giant of Philistines and said; "This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee, and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.:  and our Father instantly answered his prayer of faith; David killed Goliath the giant of the Philistines;  believers, let us ask ourselves, who are the giants in our lives today?;  who do we trust and boast upon to take them down?; this are points to ponder on today!

Brethren, let us exercise patience, trust in Jesus Christ the author and finisher of all races of life; he said, "In your patience, possess your souls."  that is we are to have patience and stand firmly, not waver in faith, but be loyal to Jesus Christ, persevere, forbear through all sufferings, and do the will of our Father without complains. trust him that he knows where we are in life; and working all things together for our good, because we trust and believe in him; and that after we have done his will, we might receive the promise of crown of glories and life everlasting;


CONCLUSION:


Dearly beloved, persecutions of Christians believers is nothing new, it has been in a existence ever since Jesus ascended into heaven; and when he was still on earth, he himself was persecuted by his enemies; therefore, as believers of today, if we find ourselves caught up in persecutions and martyrdom, let us rejoice to know that we are in his will and this world is not our home, we are all passing through to final destinations; either Hades with the enemy or Heaven with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; the choice is ours to make on this earth before it is too late, and we fly away to be at rest; however, believers, let us be encouraged not to waver but stand firmly in what we believe as followers of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior 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.)  ROMANS 15:1-3


(1)  We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities  of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
(2)  Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.
(3)  For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written,  The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.


GRACE BE UNTO YOU!


Brethren, in the above text, Apostle Paul encourages believers that are stronger in the faith, to be patient, put up with those who are morally weak in the faith, receive them, reconcile all differences, without arguments and not seek our own self interest as standards for making decisions for all, to satisfy our self agendas; but as believers, in one body of Jesus Christ, let us think of one another as brothers and sisters of one heavenly Father, embrace ourselves as family, with a common goal, to take down the enemy of our faith; and bring lost souls into salvation and eternity; and not warfare against one another with demeaning connotations; this is an attribute of the enemy to infect our spirits to disagree, envy, hate and insult one another, in other to bring divisions within the body of Christ; let us beware of his devises, but rather let us be in spirit, uplift, encourage, comfort, inspire, support the weaker in strengths, be patient with one another and live peaceably with all men; for it is written, "Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel."(Philippians 1:27).

Point to ponder, Apostle Paul went on to say, that instead of pleasing just our own selves, each of us should please our neighbors, friends, family and others for their good, to emotionally, spiritually and morally build them up;  therefore, let us do things that bring peace unto others, welcome one another with genuine brotherly love, show kindness, understand one another's points of views, and depart from evil but do good, seek peace and pursue it, as we put into other people's well, our well will never run dry in Jesus Name.  Amen!

Case in point, as believers, followers of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, let us emulate Christ; that means, we cannot do whatever we desires to do on this earth as the heathens do; for is written in the book of 1 Corinthians 10:23, "All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.": therefore, let us walk in his righteousness, and not portray ourselves like the heathens, but in all situations, view ourselves as joint heirs with Jesus Christ, and if joint heirs, "what will Jesus do?"; for, we are not of ourselves, the spirit of him who call us out of darkness into his marvelous lights dwells richly in our innermost spirits, works all things from our innermost spirits to accomplish his purposes throughout the earth; Jesus said, "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." (John 5:30); therefore, everything we do, before we make decisions, let us seek the will of our Father, from our innermost spirits, wisdom to know his will, sense of direction to walk in rightful pathways and make sure that the Holy Spirits is guiding our ways, so we fall not into traps of our enemies,

Brethren, even unbelievers, whether they are aware of the facts that, though they have rejected or have not yet received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior; he is the ultimate source of their souls; it is up to them to decide where they will spend the rest of their lives, whether in Hades damnation with the devil or in life everlasting with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; this the choice for humanity before judgment day;  also, as believers, let us have the mindset to know that as Christ suffered from hands of evil men, rebukes, criticisms, disgraces and shamefulness before his death on the cross of Calvary, we will also partake of his sufferings to gain crowns of glories in heavenly places forevermore;  however, it is written, "And I say unto you my friends,  Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you: whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him."(Luke 12:4-5); therefore, as Christ endured sufferings, let us also be encourage today to persevere in sufferings, forbear, control ourselves when provoked by evil works of men; pray and supplicate in the Spirit, for ourselves and others who are also in sufferings, sing songs of praises to our Father; and wait patiently for deliverance from Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  for when Paul and Silas were imprisoned for righteousness sake; they prayed and sang praises to our Father; suddenly, there was and earthquake, the foundation of the prison shook, immediately, all the doors of the prison were opened and every one's bands were loosed; (Acts 16);  prayer works!;  therefore, let us not focus on what our reproaches are; but rather pray, give our Father all the glory through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forevermore.


CONCLUSION:


Dearly beloved, those of us who have grown in the faith, let us encourage others who are weaken with our gifts, talents and inspirations, to strengthen their faith in the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; the same ways, Jesus called us out of darkness into his lights of glories, to be vessels with differs gifts to work with one another and collectively, fellowship together as one body in his righteousness, therefore, let us not focus on ourselves alone, but rather offer help to others, who need assistance to make it through difficult times; for our callings into the body of Christ are not to ourselves alone but to serve Jesus Christ by servicing others; also, let us not demean, talk unruly to others but let us control our tongues, speak candidly, have respect for others regardless of what their statuses may be in the faith of the righteousness of Jesus Christ; let us know what we stand for as believers, followers who are called for purposes of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior to bring lost souls into lights of salvation, grace and life everlasting. and not for our own purposes.  Grace be unto you!  Amen and Amen!

(19)  And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.


GUESS WHAT?


Brethren, the above text of today was parts of Jesus prayer for his disciples;  when we talked about truthfulness of matters, at times, we wonder what is the truth; in Jesus prayers, he asked the Father quoted,  (i)  Sanctify them through thy truth:  the text says, we receive sanctification and purification of our souls through our Father's truth; but, let us ask ourselves, what is the truth?  (ii)  the truth is the Word of our Father;  therefore, when we read his words, our spiritual eyes are opened to know truthfulness of matters concerning the Kingdom of heaven and on earth, our innermost spirits, souls and bodies are sanctified and purified through his words, to emulate the truth, love our Father with all our hearts, souls, and bodies, love one another as ourselves, seek first the Kingdom of heaven and his righteousness and all things will be added unto us, receive Jesus Christ into our hearts as Lord and Savior, believe in him, walk uprightly in his righteousness into life everlasting.

Case in point, in John chapter one verse one, it is written, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God;  and we all know that Jesus Christ, was the Word with our Father during creation; and he dwells in all things created by our Father; if the Word is the truth; then Jesus is the Truth; therefore, same Spirit of Jesus Christ is the Word and Truth; his words are true full words; therefore, when we read his words, we receive his sanctification and purification of our souls to be transform in his image and his truthfulness is revealed through our innermost spirits to shine as lights of righteousness among world of darkness, to bring along lost souls into the boat of salvation and life everlasting;  let us read his words of truth, believe in his words, have eternity.

Brethren, Jesus mentioned to our Father in his prayers, (i)  As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world;  therefore, it is a chain of command, our Father gave Jesus the assignment to minister to the world the Kingdom of heaven and his righteousness, before Jesus went back to heaven, he also commanded his disciples in Mark 16:15, "Go ye into the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." this is his command to believers of today; therefore, we are all called to spread the gospel for Jesus Christ regardless of what our gifts and talents are in his body; let us find out what our callings are in his righteousness, work for the purification of our souls, successfully finish our tasks and receive crown of glories in heavenly places forevermore; Jesus continued in prayer, saying; (ii)  And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.; Jesus kept himself holy on our behalves, so that through him we might gain holiness, to know truthfulness of matters concerning our Father, Kingdom of heaven, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forevermore.


CONCLUSION:


Dearly beloved, we all know the truth, which is the word of our Father, manifested on earth as Jesus Christ the Lord and Savior of the whole world;  going forward, let us speak truthfulness of matters to one another, truthfully judge righteous judgments, allow peace to reign supreme on earth, think rightful thoughts, rebuke evil imaginations against one another, testify truthfully not falsely, love one another as ourselves; this is the will of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!

FIELD OF DREAMS


Brethren, we are as flowers of the field of dreams; we bloom in the mornings and fade away in the evenings, we dream about future plans, what we desires and anticipates to do on this planet earth by our own human efforts everyday; however, the earth and its contents belongs to our Father, and Jesus Christ is the Lord of heaven and on earth; as humans created by our Father, we do not have control over our souls but he does knows our days on earth; therefore, let us not boast ourselves of what we will do today or tomorrow; but seek the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to do all things in life; for we really do not know what will happen in the days ahead; as humans, we live our lives in dreams everyday of things we desires to do, we talk about ways and means to manifest our own self efforts and glories; however, all glory belongs to our Father, we live by his grace; without the grace of our Father through Jesus Christ, we cannot do anything ourselves; when we wake up in the mornings, it is by grace, breathe in the air into our nostrils, it is by grace, move our bodies around on earth, it is by grace, talk, eat and drink water, it is by grace; we do all these gestures by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, not by our own human efforts; therefore, grace has been in existence since creation of the world;  (i)  when Adam and Eve disobeyed our Father in the garden of Eden, ate the forbidden fruit, suddenly their fleshly eyes opened up, became aware that they walk around in nakedness; it was by the grace of our Father that he made coats of skin, to cover up their nakedness, for, at that time, they did not know how to clothe themselves; (Genesis 3:21);  (ii)  when our Father decided to destroy the world with water, Noah was a righteous man, therefore, him and his household found grace in the eyes of our Father, (Genesis 6:8); our Father saved seven members of his household by the grace of Noah; there are several manifestations of the grace of our Father from creation until this twenty-first century, let us be thankful and embrace his grace forevermore.  

Case in point; in reference to the above text, Apostle James is saying, as humans, created by our Father, we do not have control over our own souls but he does; therefore, when we decide to make future undertakings in life; we ought to pray about things, seek the will of our Father, include him in our plans, know that he can disrupt our plans, change things around in his own sovereignty, he has the upper hand in all our undertakings; therefore, let us be aware of his dominion and if we boast ourselves, with prideful words, regarding our undertakings or achievements in life; he can change our glories into shame; for it is written, "And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted." (Matthew 23:12).

Fruit of thought, Apostle James asked, "For what is this life?; we are just a breath of life, we breathe in and breathe out gases such as oxygen at all times, without breath of oxygen gases, our bodies will not function properly; in biblical perspectives, it is the indwelling spirit of our Father, residing within our innermost spirits that is our main source of existence; therefore, if our Father decides to withdraw our source of powers and energies from our mortal bodies, we are doomed, and sleep in death, for it is written;  "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." (John 6:63); therefore, Jesus is our source of existence, let us not speak in arrogance, but rather humble ourselves in the mighty hand of our Father, control our mouths when we speak, know that our Father is in control of our lives, Jesus taught his disciples to say in their prayers, "Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven," (Matthew 6:10); also, when Jesus prayed in the garden of Gethsemane the second time, he said, "O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done. (Matthew 26:42); therefore, let us yield ourselves to the will of our Father, for we are not of our own selves but he is our creator, Father of All in his own Sovereignty and allow his will to be done in our lives forevermore;


CONCLUSION:


Dearly beloved, as believers, let us always invite the will of our Father into our undertakings in life; for, it is only by his grace, that we existed on this planet earth, and are able to walk in his goodness and mercies, good health and vitality; when we make decisions of life  let us ask the Holy Spirit for sense of directions, if we pray to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, he will give us wisdom to make rightful choices, allow his will to be done in lives forevermore;  Oh Father, may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!

(39)  Search the scriptures;  for in them ye think ye have eternal life:  and they are they which testify of me.
(40)  And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.


TIME FOR INVESTIGATION


Brethren, in this chapter, Jesus went to Jerusalem, at the pool of Bethesda, there was a man who lack sufficient strength for thirty-eight years by the pool; Jesus had compassion on him, healed and asked him to take up his bed and walk; but he did all these things on a Sabbath day; the man went and told Jesus enemies, who made him whole; therefore trouble started, his enemies persecuted, sought to kill him;  in the above text, Jesus asked his persecutors to investigate who he is from the recorded words of our Father; however, his persecutors did the research, but they could not find anything about him; why?;  because, they were blindfolded by the enemy, for they believe not that Jesus was the Messiah, the son of our Father prophesied about in the scriptures, for, it is written in book of Isaiah, "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign;  Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."; regardless, of what they read about him in the scriptures, they still did not accept him as the Messiah but were in expectation of maybe an angelic image with wings.

Fruit of thoughts, again, Jesus gave them enough evidence with signs and wonders to prove him as the Messiah, but they still refused to accept him; because of unbelief that a Son of our Father, could walk upon this earth, among humanity; though he raised the dead, healed the sick, made the blind whole, the lame walked; they rather sought to kill him; for, going against their doctrine to save lives on Sabbath days;  brethren, when evil people hold meetings, plot to do evil against children of our Father, regardless of what they do righteously, the enemy will empower them to carry out his evil works;  let us be ware of humanity, watch and pray;  also, whenever we read the scriptures, let us pray to the Holy Spirit to reveal hidden secrets, that we may know truthfulness of matters;  at times, we read his words over and over again, same book, chapters, words, but each time the Holy Spirit enlightens our spiritual eyes to see revelations and know truthfulness of matters, and we receive wisdom, knowledge and understandings of his words;  the scriptures are sacred, lively words of our Father, ministered by the Holy Spirit, to holy men of our Father, sealed by his authority to guide humanity in his ways of righteousness into life everlasting; for, it is written in the book of Mark, "And Jesus answering said unto them,  Do ye not therefore err, because ye knew not the scriptures, neither the power of God?";  therefore, in this book is life everlasting, from book of Genesis to Revelation, all that is recorded from creation to end of the world, is all about Jesus;  if we read the scriptures, and walk in his righteousness, there are no other reasons why we should miss the last boat of Salvation, which is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and life everlasting; for the scriptures do testify of him that he is truly the Son of our Father, he is the only way, true and life; there is no other way, if we confess with our mouths that he is Lord and Savior, accept him into our hearts, we have salvation, grace and life everlasting; as believers, if we are not accepted on this earth, let us know that Jesus was not accepted either; that did not stop him from accomplishing his assignment, but he successfully finished his task and said on the cross" It is finished!" (John 19:30);  what about you?

Brethren, there are so many distractions in this fallen world, the enemy had infiltrated minds of humanity, blindfolded their eyes to believe his lies and deceits, contrary to what is written in the scriptures; let us be careful not fall preys to his sinful attributes, words of our Father recorded in the scriptures never changed they are sealed forevermore; though some scripture interpretations, may alter some of his words, we should not lose its spiritual basics, let us be careful which versions are suitable for our spiritual growth, that when we read, we may gain insights to wisdom, knowledge and understandings of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.


CONCLUSION:


Dearly beloved, everything we need to guide our ways in this life are recorded in the scriptures; the book is a wonderful book; let us not ignore it, but read it; also, the entire scriptures from beginning to the end is about Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, he was during creation, spoken of in the Book of Genesis 3:15, as the seed; Isaiah 7:14; is the prophesy about his birth; and Psalm 72; speaks of his righteousness, from the beginning, with Moses, the Prophets, and Psalms; his birth, mission and righteousness; let us not be blindfolded by the enemy, to know truthfulness of matters, that he is in all things created by our Father, he is part of our Father, born of the Spirit, walked on planet earth, ministered things of the kingdom of our Father, and at the end of his ministry, he suffered for our iniquities, died on the cross, but rose again from the dead, defeated the enemy, and ascended into heavenly places, sited on his throne of glory, on the right hand of our Father, pleading for mercies on our behalves when we trespass against our Father;  he is coming back again to take believers into life everlasting;  let us get ready?   Amen and Amen!

YOURS SINCERELY?


Brethren, when we speak of love, there are several ways and meanings of the word, depending on what type of conversation or expression we relate or show to others; in the above text, love is being spoken of as an audible expressions of passionate affection, feelings, for another person; however, on the writer's point of view,  the word love should not be used as an expression, verbalized to one another alone, but, our actions should also portray the intentions of our innermost spirits;  he said, "My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue;  but in deed and in truth; several times we have used the word love to express how we feel about others in closer relationships, to relate how deeply we care about them; however, we verbalize love as a positive connotation only, but we do not really portray physically what we express or how we emotionally feel about them; the writer of this text, is saying, if we truly love others, we should not verbalize the word love alone, but show love in our actions and behaviors, how we will feel about the people we claim to love; not only that, but if we call ourselves children of our Father, and joint heirs with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, we have to stand firmly in whatever we do, speak truthfully of matters, be sincere, real, mean what we say, let our yeses' be yes, and noes' be no; and our spoken words be made manifested in our actions and behaviors; for it is written in the scriptures 1 Peter 1:22, "Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: therefore, let us love one another with pureness of hearts, show kindness, be merciful, compassionate, forgive one another's faults, embrace one another with the love of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forevermore.

Fruits of thoughts, brethren, let us not wait for special occasions, to express our love for others, but sincerely reach out and touch someone everyday, at times, on our ways to our workplaces, offices; when we join others in elevators, all it takes to show love is to say good morning or hello, they may choose to respond or not pay any attentions to us; but, that is perfectly alright, we gave ourselves good mornings by declaring the morning as good; we will experience the goodness of our Father all morning and day long;  remember, what we say or do to others reciprocate, we receive back what we give to the glorification of our Father through Jesus Christ; at times, all have have to do to show love to others, is to smile, and we touch others with our lights of love illuminating from our innermost spirits to brighten up their days; and sincerely express our love of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; we may also choose to surprise love ones with gifts of love, such as flowers, box of chocolates, etc..it is the little things that we do, unexpectedly to people that shows how much we care about them; and this is how we know that we are true children of Jesus Christ, to declare earnestly that our hearts are pure before him through our love and kind gestures; if we feel guilty because we do not love people in rightful ways, that alright, there are many more days ahead that we can change things around for better; and regardless, our Father knows our short comings, he is greater than our guiltiness, therefore, let us not feel condemned about issues, but be happy that we are his children; for there is no condemnation to those that are in Christ Jesus; but rather let us try to do our best, show other people that we care about them, as Jesus Christ loves and cares about us that he gave himself as a sacrificial lamb, to take away all the iniquities of this world; therefore, he will take absolute control of our innermost spirits, teach us how to rightfully love our Father and one another as ourselves.


CONCLUSION:


Dearly beloved, today's text is about truthfulness of love; no one is capable of knowing contents of people hearts, except our Father, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; (Luke 16:15);  therefore, let us show love by giving and serving one another with kind gestures, at times, in other to show love, we might have to get out of our comfort zones to help those in devastating situations, so we can truly call ourselves children of the most High Father and joint heirs to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forever and evermore.  I love you all with the love of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!  Amen and amen!

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  1 PETER 2:21-23

(21)  For even hereunto were ye called:because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
(22)  Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
(23)  Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:


COPYCATS OF JESUS!

Brethren, as believers, let us emulate Christ in all our undertakings; this is the basic of our callings in the faith of his righteousness; for, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, suffered and died to pay for our iniquities, and this is one of the major reasons, why we should also act in accordance with his footsteps: we are to exemplify ourselves in him, that means, to sacrifice, deny ourselves of things of the flesh, seek after things of the spirit, be ready to undergo persecutions and sufferings, even to points of death, take up our crosses and follow Jesus Christ; not only that, but parts of our duties as believers, are to strengthen other believers, minister, encourage, and inspire them to continue in the faith, in his righteousness, not to be dismayed when going through hardships for righteousness sake; but to be strong in the Lord, and support those who are in persecutions with prayers;  for, it is written, "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." (2 Timothy 3:12); it a package deal!;  therefore, let us be in spirit at all times, pray, read his words; for it is written, "Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." (Ephesians 6:11-12).

Case in point, though Jesus Christ was born of the Spirit of our Father, and there was no sins found in him, or ungodly behaviors such as lying, craftiness and deceitfulness; he was afflicted, whipped, crushed with the cross, suffered for our iniquities; but he did not opened up his mouth; but offered himself as a sheep, speechless to his slayers, and did not say a word, but took all blames, pains and sufferings so that humanity can be set free from bondage of iniquities forevermore; therefore, as believers and followers of Christ; the world will hate us; same way, they hated Jesus, they will try to make our lives miserable, however, if we follow the footsteps of Christ, let us not pay attention to enemy attacks, but focus our eyes entirely on Jesus Christ who called us out of darkness into his marvelous lights; and shine our lights among darkness; when we respond to what evil people say or do; we empower them to continue to persecute and trouble our souls; if we emulate Christ, we will not open up our mouths but endure all sufferings with spirits of perseverance, forbearance, control ourselves, be shinning examples, take it all; for Jesus took it all on the cross; and still said, "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34); futhermore, there is a day set aside, when judgment will come upon evil doers, on that day, we will laugh out loud with Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior in his glory forevermore.

Brethren, when they insulted Jesus Christ, he did not insult them back nor opened up his mouth; at times we have to be quiet, allow enemies to reproach, provoke, persecute and torment our lives, for when we respond or fight for ourselves, Jesus Christ cannot fight our battles; we have to realized that when good or bad things happen to children of our Father; he feels their emotions; therefore, if we are sad, he partakes of our sadness, same way, when we rejoice, his spirits rejoices within our innermost spirits; for he is a merciful Father; therefore, when evil people hurt our feelings, they hurt our Father himself; and who can fight against him; or win battles over him?; no one!; therefore, let us rejoice in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ; submit our souls entirely under his mighty hands of protection; it is written in the book of Psalms 91:1 "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty,"; therefore, our Father is our habitations we will not fear no foes; and when Jesus suffered for our iniquities, he did not threaten anyone, but surrendered all things into the hands of our Father, who judges by his uprightness, to take absolute control; for it is written in the book of Isaiah 53:7, "He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his month.";  therefore, let us practice quietness in times of troubles, and allow Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior take absolute control of all situations forvermore.


CONCLUSION:

Dearly beloved, all souls on this earth has callings of Jesus Christ; believers and unbelievers the same, our callings are planted in our innermost spirits before we were born; however, all gifts and callings not the same, some are called physicians, engineers, lawyers, evangelists, housekeepers etc.,, we all have duties and responsibilities to perform on this earth; collectively, we dwell upon this earth in groups, but individually we possess gifts and talents that are needed to function together as a whole body under the jurisdiction of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; and we need to lean on one another's gift and talents  to accomplish our god-giving assignments; if we hate and provoke one another, we break the chains of love and togetherness in our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and savior; for, we cannot be followers of that which is good, but disagree or do evil against one another; this is not Christlike, let us emulate Christ; see ourselves as brothers and sisters and not enemies; love one another as ourselves, think positive thoughts towards one another, and even unto those who plan and plot evil against us; for, we ought to forgive them that our ways may be righteous before our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE


(KJV.)  LUKE 21:25-27


(25)  And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, and perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
(26)  Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth:  for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
(27)  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.


WHAT IS GOING ON?


Brethren, in the above text, Jesus foretells signs of the end times; he said, (i)  "There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars: on the earth,; what are these signs:  it is written in the book of Prophet Isaiah "For the stars of heaven and constellations thereof shall not give their light:  the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her lights to shine." (Isaiah 13:10);  why? because on that glorious day of the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, it is only his lights of glory that will shine; for lights of the sun, moon and stars will be confounded, for, the sun will not shine any longer during the day; nor the moon give its lights at night time, because Jesus Christ will be our everlasting light, and our Father in his glory forevermore;  though we are already in the end times, these events are yet to come; therefore, let us prepare ourselves to meet with Jesus Christ in the firmament of his glory ;  (ii)  and upon the earth distress of nations, and perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;  we hear about devastating events going on in nations of this world, events such as persecutions, kidnappings, massacres of believers, and natural disasters, droughts and famines, earthquakes, tsunamis and tornadoes; all these are signs of the end times,  as believers, we need not worry or be dismayed, because we have Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior;  however, let us draw closer to him more than ever before, with truthfulness and joyfulness of hearts, with greater faith, in pureness of hearts and holiness unto our Father; stand firmly without wavering or backsliding into world full of darkness; but rather do good, love one another as ourselves and live peaceably with all men.

Brethren, Jesus said, "Humanity will faint from terror, seeing those things that are yet to happen on earth;  currently, terrible things are already happening all over the world; however, let us not focus on those things, fear or lament; but rather pray, believe in our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior to take absolute control of his creation; he spoke these events into existence, and are recorded in the scriptures and so shall it happen!;  therefore, let us be watchful. put more efforts in what matters, our salvation, be faithful to our callings and walk in righteous; per chance, we might affect positive changes in this world of darkness, bring lost souls into the last boat of salvation and eternity which is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  for, it is written in the book of Revelations 3:3, "Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent.  If therefore thou shalt not watch,  I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee";  brethren, it is time to get ready, Jesus Christ is coming soon!

Brethren, on that day; believers or unbelievers; we shall all see the Son of man coming in the cloud with great power and glory to receive believers into life everlasting;  that will be an amazing scene to behold!  therefore, let us ask ourselves, if Jesus Christ should come today, in his glory; what will be our fate as believers?  this is a point to ponder!;  however, while we are waiting for his glorious appearing; let us continue to work for our salvation;  preach, minister the gospel of truth, encourage and inspire one another in the faith; this is not time to condemn ourselves with demeaning words of hatred and filthy communications, but rather, let us embrace ourselves as brothers and sisters with one Father, in one body of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; and understand one another, that we are all different in natures, accept one another with good faith, leave all judgments to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; for judgement day is near!


CONCLUSION:


Dearly beloved, the above text of today is the message of events surrounding the signs of the end of this age;  let us get ready for this great day, how do we get ready?;  by accepting Jesus Christ into our hearts as Lord and Savior, believe in him; get baptized into the faith of his righteousness, obey his worlds, love one as ourselves and live peaceably with all men; this is not too much to do, let us pray for the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit to guide, strengthen us to take necessary steps into life everlasting.  Amen and Amen!

Brethren, in the above text; Prophet Isaiah pitifully calls humanity to come into the enjoyment of our Father;  he said, (i)  "Check this out, everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the waters,"  the word thirst in this verse refers to spiritual dryness of our souls, the waters is the anointing from the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit;  the two coupled, referred in this text as food and water, sustains believers in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, if we thirst, drink water to quench our thirstiness but do not know reasons why we still feel thirsty; it is time to seek our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to receive food and water, nourishment for our souls and be sustained with faith, in his righteousness forevermore; for Jesus said, "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled." (Matthew 5:6);  (ii)  and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.; this prophesy was given by Prophet Isaiah before Jesus was born, he invites humanity to come and receive free grace; and when Jesus was born, ministered to humanity, suffered, died for our sins on the cross, paid the price for free salvation by his death and resurrection; therefore, salvation is free and available today, to all who believes in him as Lord and Savior of the world; for it is written in the book of John 4:14, "But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life."

Case in point,  Prophet Isaiah asked; "why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy?  Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare."; therefore, let us not waste to much of our strengths to labor for worldly possessions, that will perish with this earth; for our final abode is in heavenly places; when we sleep in death, we carry nothing away from this world; for it is written in the book of Ecclesiastes 5:15;  "As he came forth of his mother's womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand."; therefore, let us seek things pertaining to where we are going after life on earth; be spiritual, read the scriptures, pray, love and care for one another, walk in faith through the righteousness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ into life everlasting.

Brethren, do not get me wrong, things of this world matters; our Father blesses his children to make them comfortable to love and worship him alone; however, the enemy knows what to do to distract humanity from focusing on our Father, his Son our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, salvation and our final destinations in life; therefore, he lures humanity into evil temptations, to follow after things of this world, once we yield to his infiltration spirits, he sets one against another to compete against themselves, worry about what we must have, work harder everyday to afford things that are not necessary to salvation; also, he steals our joy, buy infiltrating minds, to buy things we don't need and cannot afford to buy with borrowed money from credit cards, to indebted ourselves to credit card companies,  worry about what we owe, willingly enslave our lives to our debtors; sometimes, if care is not taken, we labor and enslave ourselves under bondage of debts for the rest of our lives; this is ungodly on our parts;  therefore, let us be aware, for the enemy is behind our sufferings, we need to rebuke him, get in the words of our Father, the sword of the spirit; position ourselves with faith, the battle is already won by Jesus Christ on the cross; rebuke the devil, and he will flee away; brethren, let us have awakening spirits; for, it is written in the book of Ecclesiastes 1:2-3, "Vanity of vanities,  saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity. What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?";   there is no profit on this earth for our souls, our rewards are in heavenly places; therefore, let us seek first the kingdom of our Father and his righteousness and all things shall be added unto us forevermore.

Brethren, let us listen to the words of our Father, for his words are judgmental but they are words of truth, in his righteousness, if we obey him, we will inherit covenanted blessings of David, we shall not hunger and thirst no more, but will enjoy grace, peace and joy everlasting through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.



CONCLUSION:



Dearly beloved, today's message is invitation to great feast of Salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; the first covenant of mercies was through David, the newer covenant of grace is through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; if we come unto him with our labors and heavy laden, he will give us rest; we will not hunger, because his words are spirits and when we read his words, it is our daily bread, spiritually we will be fed, and will not go hungry; and if we drink out of his wells of salvation;, our souls will receive nourishment from the anointing powers of the Holy Spirit, we will grow with wisdom, knowledge and understanding of our Father and his Son, in their righteousness forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  LUKE 14:12-14


(12)  Then said he also to him that bade him,  When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
(13)  But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind.
(14)  And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.


THE JOY OF THE LORD IS YOUR STRENGTH!


Brethren, in this chapter, Jesus went into the house of one of the chief Pharisees to eat bread on a Sabbath day;  when he entered the house, everyone was looking at him; why?; to see if he will do something contrary to the doctrine of the Sabbath; however, he saw how they chose out the higher seats at the dinner table and arraigned themselves; therefore, he told a couple of parables of feast and table mannerism; the text of today is one of his parables spoken at the dinner table, he said to the host of the dinner, "When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, brothers or sisters, relatives, or neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid."  what Jesus said, in other words is; it is better to do kind gestures to people we do not know, outside our comfort zones, friends and family circles, than to do things to impress people we already know; for our Father sees our hearts and motives behind our good deeds, and will reward according to our works in his righteousness; for, it is written in the book of Matthew 16:27; "For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.; therefore, let us not do good gestures only to be applause by humanity, but do them please Jesus Christ, who called us out of darkness into his marvelous lights;  if we call people we know to feast with us, they may invite us back and by doing so, we have already received our rewards; for it is written, "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith." (Galatians 6:10); therefore, let us not do eye service, and selective of people we desires to honor or associate ourselves with resources given by our Father through the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but genuinely show kindness to all, and live peaceably with all men,  

Case in point, Jesus said, "But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind," we may ask ourselves, why these people?; because these are people who have no regards in society, and Jesus wants believers to take care of them;  the poor, have no means of sustenance or any earthly possessions; therefore, we have to help them food, shelter and clothing; that is what Jesus will do!;  the crippled, the lame are disable, deficient and mentally incapable to do all thing for themselves; therefore, they need our assistance in many ways; let us not ignore them, but rather show that we care about them, their souls are not handicapped, they are our brothers and sisters who need our assistance to make them comfortable and happy; therefore, let us not turn our backs on them, but show our love and compassion by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ;   the blind cannot see even when it is daylight, but walk in darkness at all times, without the guidance of others, they are not able to move around freely; fortunately, we do have eyes to see with everyday; they live by the grace of our Father everyday, but, we are fortunate to have eyes to see our ways in this life, work and receive blessings;  therefore, if we who are capable to move around in this fallen world by the grace of our Father, and are blessed with heavenly blessings; when we do good unto the poor, crippled, lame, the blind, or visit others who are incarcerated, we do these kind gestures unto Jesus Christ; for it is written, "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:.Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me." (Matthew 25:35-36); therefore, none of our good gestures to the suffering, poor and handicaps are done in vain, but there are eternal rewards awaiting people of compassion in heavenly places forevermore.

Brethren, when we feed the poor, crippled, lame, blind, give to people in needy situations; visit and pray for the sick and people incarcerated; genuinely show kindness to others, not because we want to be recognized by society as rich and famous, or people with higher dignities, to receive praises, and vain glories to ourselves, but because we care about souls and possess the attributes of our Father, his goodness, mercies and compassion; Jesus said, we will be blessed; though they cannot repay us, we will receive rewards at the rising again of the righteous on judgment day; therefore, let us show compassion, uplift others who are suffering, be merciful, for it is written, "Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful." (Luke 6:36).


CONCLUSION:


Brethren, at times, we feel reluctant to give to the poor, homeless and druggist; thinking that they will misuse our money; Jesus understands our point of view, however, everything we possess, are blessings from him, though we work hard to attain those things, we attain them through his grace, not from our own human efforts; and if he gave those blessings, then we ought to give from what he gave by his grace, to sustain others who cannot fend for themselves; regardless of what they will use the blessings for, once we give out, we will be blessed, and we should not worry; for we did our parts, and Jesus who sees our hearts, will replenish our pocket books with more riches, blessings of promotions, victories, protections, good health and vitality forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!


QUOTE OF THE DAY:


(KJV.)  Luke 14:21  So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things.  Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant,  Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the mained, and the halt, and the blind.

EL ELOHIM MINISTRIES: DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  JOHN 16:8-11


(8)  And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
(9)  Of sin, because they believe not on me.
(10) Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more.
(11) Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.


HE IS HERE ALREADY!


Brethren, in this chapter, Jesus explained to his disciples, the truth of matters, and reasons why it is necessary for him to depart from this world after his mission is done; he said, "it is expedient for you that I go away, for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you." (John 16:7);  this is a promise of Jesus Christ that was fulfilled by our Father on the day of Pentecost, (Acts 2); Jesus taught his disciples that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth, which they that believe on him, will receive from our Father; for, while Jesus was with them, the Holy Spirit was not yet given; Jesus himself was not glorified, until he completed his assignment, took upon him the iniquities of humanity by his sufferings, dead on the cross, rose again from the dead, ascended into heaven;  however, who is this Comforter?  the Comforter is the Holy Spirit of truth, given by our Father on the day of Pentecost, after Jesus ascended into heaven; for it is written, "Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you." (John 14:17);  therefore, if the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit dwells in us, we cannot be liars, for he guides our ways in righteousness, into life everlasting.

Case in point,  Jesus explained the mission of the Holy Spirit saying;  (i)  And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin;  therefore, though Jesus died on the cross to pay for all our iniquities, it is human nature to continue in sin; for it is written in the scriptures Romans 3:10; "There is none righteous, no, not one.";  however, the Holy Spirit, does not neglect our trespasses because Jesus already paid the price for our iniquities on the cross, No!;  he still criticizes and corrects us gentle when we transgress; therefore, if the Holy Spirit is grieved whenever we trespass, then, let us not rule out our sins against our Father, but acknowledge that we have done wrong, show remorse and continue in the grace of forgiveness provided through the sufferings, dead and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forevermore;  (ii)  and of righteousness, the Holy Spirit, (Spirit of truth) was given to lead us aright and in moral ways; he does not condone ungodly behaviors, he is there to make sure that we stay on rightful paths, he moans and cries out when we grieve him, so we correct ourselves; on the contrary, he applause our good behaviors, and assures his approvals; the Holy Spirit is a force, also referred to, as the third person of the Trinity; his mission in believers lives is not to condemn but to guide souls into godliness and life everlasting;  (iii)  and of judgment; the Holy Spirit is a spirit of discernment, wisdom, intelligence, prudent and of peace;  he resides in our innermost spirits to inspire believers to make rightful choices in life, transforms believers from who we are, to who they  ought to be in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; he has the ability to judge, especially matters concerning ungodliness, with his rightful perspectives and discretion; therefore, the Holy Spirit is for us not against us; let us not ignore his teachings, warnings, and applause but rather pay more attention to his righteousness,

Brethren, Jesus said, (i)  the Comforter will reprove humanity of sin, because they believe not on him; therefore, it is sinful not to believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior;  those of us who already received and believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior;  let us pray on behalf of the unbelievers to have change of hearts, believe in Jesus Christ before it is too late;  (ii)  of righteousness;  because when Jesus goes away to our Father, he will not be available to minister his ways of righteousness any longer, but when the Holy Spirit comes, which our Father will give, he will continue to reprove the world of  his righteousness; therefore, if we walk in ungodliness, it is the duty of the Holy Spirit to lead us into the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; also, the Holy Spirit is our Comforter, Teacher and Companion until the end of our days on earth;  he came to help believers with the work of our Father, transform lives into salvation and life everlasting; he is a force, (dynamos) and the third person of the Trinity; Jesus referred to him in verse eight of the above text, as "he", meaning the Holy Spirit is the third person of our Father, and not just a force, dynamos by itself;  (iii)  of judgment, because regardless of what the enemy does to humanity on this earth, he has failed already, he blindfolded unbelievers harden their hearts not to believe in Jesus Christ, so they continue to walk in ungodliness in darkness of this world, and believe not the gospel of Jesus Christ, to bring them out of darkness into his marvelous lights of salvation and life everlasting; the enemy just like the unbelievers, they are running out of time to fool around; the day of  judgment is near, when the prince of this world (Satan) will be disgraced forevermore; he was disgraced when Jesus surrendered himself to die on the cross for our iniquities, but after his dead, he rose again from the dead, and that was a surprise to the enemy; he thought Jesus dying was the end of him and his ministry; but the ways of our Father is mysterious, Jesus resurrected back to life, the enemy was put to shame, the ministry is growing everyday, and will continue to grow until the day of judgment; for Jesus said, "And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his works shall be...I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. (Revelation 22:12-13).


CONCLUSION:


Dearly beloved, in today's lesson, Jesus explains the mission of the Holy Spirit to his disciples; as disciples of twenty-first century; let us acknowledge the Holy Spirits presence within our innermost spirits, allow him to teach us all things, comfort us in our sorrows and moments of despairs, talk to him about all our troubles, and allow him to manifest his powers through our lives; by the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ forever and evermore.  Amen and Amen!

DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  LUKE 6:22-23


(22)  Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
(23)  Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy:  for,  behold, your reward is great in heaven:  for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.


SUPREME BLESSEDNESS


Brethren, Jesus Christ in the Sermon on the Mount taught his disciples that the poor, meek, and the merciful, peacemakers, those that are pure at heart, mourners, thirst for justice, and persecuted for righteousness sake; should not worry or be dismayed, but rejoice exceedingly;  for, in various ways, they will be rewarded in heavenly places forevermore.

In the above text,  Jesus said, (i)  Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you;  as believers, followers of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, wherever we go on earth, there are guardian angels with us to guide our ways in his righteousness and prevent us from yielding to enemy temptations;  therefore, we are not alone in this world, but with Jesus Christ; however, at times the world will hate believers for no apparent reasons, create rumors, spread them around to discredit believers;  currently, if we are in such adversities, Jesus said;  "we are blessed! believe it, receive it, it is done already in his holy name. Amen!;  (ii) and when they shall separate you from their company;  at times, people will hate believers, persecute them to points of death, separation from societies, churches and families circles; this is not new, for it has happened before to the old time prophets, therefore, let us not be afraid or worry ourselves when persecutions rises against us for righteousness sake; but rejoice, for Jesus will work all things together for good to those who trust and believe in him; and we shall overcome by his blood and words of our testimonies;  let's read on,  (iii)  and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil;  isn't interesting, how people who shouted hosanna to Jesus when he triumphantly entered into Jerusalem, turn around few days later and shouted crucify him?;  the world is full of uncertainties; therefore, let us not put our trust in people, but rather be ware, be wise, trust in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, put on the whole amour of Christ, guard ourselves with prayers and reading of his words against all uncertainties of this world;  people will formulate stories and spread around, find faults with everything believers do, disgrace, discredit and mock them behind their backs, but fake themselves as trustworthy individuals;  this is evil!  let us be ware, the enemy is crafty and dubious; he comes as angel of light but evil in all his ways;  for it is written, "And no marvel: for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." (2 Cor. 11:14); (iv)  lastly in this verse, let's read "for the Son of man's sake.":  there are believers facing persecutions all over the world, the enemy is frustrated and at war over souls on this earth;  however, he cannot win any war, he failed when Jesus died but rose again to set the captives free from his bondage, blot away all our iniquities, tore off the vail of the tempo and grace was made available to all humanity;  it is up to humanity to make right choices in life and possess their possesssions; and if we suffer and die as believers of Jesus Christ, death is on this earth is nothing, but our souls are asleep; for, we shall rise up again when trumpets shall sound in heavenly places on the day of redemption, and unite with Jesus Christ forevermore;  for it is written, "Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." (Matt. 10:28);  therefore, there is nothing to fear in Jesus Christ, but rather let us rejoice, be happy for we are in rightful positions as soldier of Christ, that is why the world will hate us, but our services to him on this earth, are not done in vain but there are greater rewards awaiting in heavenly places for all those who sacrifice themselves on this earth for righteousness sake;  therefore, if we are in the will of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, let us rejoice, and be happy; for, we are blessed forevermore.


CONCLUSION:


Dearly beloved, as believers who walk in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, again, we are blessed forevermore;  regardless of how we feel about things; we are more than conquers; for it is written in the book of Isaiah 41:10-11;  "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God:  I will strengthen thee;  yea,  I will help thee;  yea,  I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness...Behold,  all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish."  What a Blessed Assurance of our Father, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forever and evermore!  Amen and Amen!
