Light of The World

The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined.

Guardian Angels

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. Psalm 91:11

We all probably experienced that moment or time and look back and say “How did I ever survive that? Or how did I not get injured? Because God will command his angels to watch over you, the question is do you believe? Do you have faith in God to protect you?

Even Jesus said when he was on trial during his crucifixion, if he wanted to wage war he would have called on his army of angels to deliver him, but Jesus willingly laid down his life.

They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. Psalm 91:12

Satan even used this scripture against Jesus in the wilderness, challenged him to force angels to protect him. But as Jesus said, Don’t tempt God, meaning its not our will but Gods will. Angels obey Gods commands not ours. Pray to God for his protection and he will hear you

You shall tread on the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shall you trample under feet. Psalm 91:13

I think this scripture is interesting as its says “The dragon (Satan) shall you trample under feet” When you call upon Gods protection, Satan can’t touch you. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Because he has set his love on me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known my name. Psalm 91:14

What a powerful message from God, “ Because You have set your love on God, he will deliver You”

“God will set You on high because you know Gods name” All God wants from you is your heart, when you give yourself to The Lord, he will exalt you, he will call on his Guardian Angels to protect you in Jesus Name Amen

Gods Voice

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: John 10:27

The other day me and my wife were on a “date night” when we stopped at the mall. On our way out of the mall we heard a childs voice yelling, we instantly looked at each other and knew that was our kids voice. We walked back to the nearby Pizza shop and there was our kid with his grandparents.

Isn’t it amazing how you could recognize your child’s voice in a crowd of people? This is how God hears us, he knows our voice. The more we pray the more God recognizes us and build that personal relationship with our Creator.

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. John 10:28

Through Jesus sacrifice on the cross, he has given us eternal life. When you accept Christ into your heart, nobody can take away the grace from God. Jesus is the only Truth, Life, and Way, there is no other way to Heaven

My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one. John 10:29-30

Jesus goes on to explain the Father/Son relationship. Jesus was sent from God as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Because of this covenant created at the cross, we are redeemed. Jesus goes on to describe how him and God are one, the Word became Flesh and dwelt among us

Are you casting your cares to God? If so he knows your voice, are you listening for his? God speaks to us in many ways thru the Bible, prayer, and other people. Take comfort in knowing you are not alone, just as a Parent watches over a child, God is watching over you in Jesus Name Amen

Bible Love Story

But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Ruth 1:16

At first glance the book of Ruth seems like just a Love Story but end results turned out to be greater blessings, not only for Ruth and Boaz, but for the entire world. There grandson would be King David, who also is the bloodline of Jesus Christ.

Ruth was the daughter in law to Naomi, they all lost their husbands due to a great famine. Naomi decides to head back to her hometown of Bethlehem and Ruth decided to follow her. Ruth was not a blood relative of Naomi, but was loyal to her as her daughter in law

At this, she bowed down with her face to the ground. She asked him, “Why have I found such favor in your eyes that you notice me–a foreigner?” Ruth 2:10

Boaz, a rich and respected man of Bethlehem showed great favor to Ruth. This was unexpected because Ruth was a Moabite and not a Jew. Typically, foreigners were not associated with. He made sure Ruth and Naomi were taken care of and showed great compassion

And now, my daughter, fear not; I will do to you all that you require: for all the city of my people does know that you are a virtuous woman. Ruth 3:11

Over time Boaz and Ruth became closer, and Boaz declared to all of Bethlehem that Ruth was a virtuous woman, which we know is the highest honor. This was a big deal, remember because Ruth is a Moabite and not a Jew. It was clear Boaz loved Ruth and she loved him also

Then the elders and all the people at the gate said, “We are witnesses. May the LORD make the woman who is coming into your home like Rachel and Leah, who together built up the family of Israel. May you have standing in Ephrathah and be famous in Bethlehem. Ruth 4:11

Boaz went to the elders of Israel to make his marriage official, the elders accepted and gave him this blessing. Little did they know this blessing would come true as they had a son named Obed, who would have a son named Jesse, who would have a son David, who became the King of Israel.

God works in mysterious ways and through Love he saved the entire world thru his Son Jesus Christ who is from the bloodline of Dave Amen

Rapture

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.  Matthew 24:36

Throughout history many people tried to predict the return of Jesus, there are some who even tried to claim he already came back. However Jesus told us only God knows the day and hour, anyone else making claims is clearly a false prophet.

Not even the angels in heaven know, so you know if anyone claiming to know this or was given a revelation, they are a false prophet

But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Matthew 24: 37-39

Jesus will return like a thief in the night, the time when nobody expects it. As Jesus teaches us here the world will keep going about their business not paying attention to what God has planned.

But notice the symbolism Jesus uses, “until the day Noah entered into the ark” What happened when Noah and family entered the ark? They were saved from the destruction of the world. What will happen when Jesus returns? We will be saved from the tribulation, which is the ultimate destruction of the world, hence Rapture.

Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.  Matthew 24:40-41

Jesus teaches us more symbolism here, some people will be “taken” and some will be “left”. What is Jesus referring to? Obviously the Rapture, those who believe in Jesus will be saved from the tribulation. Those who reject Christ will face the judgement of God.

Watch therefore: for you know not what hour your Lord does come. Matthew 24:42

As Jesus taught many times, we need to always be prepared for The Day of The Lord. Meaning you don’t want be unprepared when Jesus returns. If you’re holding off giving your life to Christ, tomorrow is not promised. Everyone who calls upon The Lord shall be saved, are you prepared?
