The Blessed Life

So that you, your children and their children after them may fear the LORD your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life. Deuteronomy 6:2

What was the purpose of Gods Law? Is God just trying to control us? When we talk about the Law of God and sin, people quickly become resistant. Why? Because everyone feels like God is trying to control them or take away their pleasure. But Gods commands are just as he says “So we may enjoy a long life”. As we know the wages of sin are death, but those who seek life will follow God.

Many say they love God but don’t follow any of his commands, as Jesus said if you love him you will keep his commandments (John 14:15) Does an unruly child show love to a parent by disobedience? No, we train up a child in the way they should go so they will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6) It’s the same with our Heavenly Father, he wants us to live a prosperous and happy life, but disobedience and sin will only lead to sorrow and destruction

God is Love (1 John 4:8) not a dictator, even the angels in Heaven have free will, otherwise Lucifer would have never rebelled (Isaiah 14:12) But there are consequences for all our actions, one day we will be held accountable for all our actions. (Matthew 12:36) Your destiny can be determined by You, for everyone who calls upon The Lord shall be saved in Jesus Name Amen

Light On My Path

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalm 119:105

What guides you through your life? Do you know what path your headed on? The Word of God is a special gift given to us because its gives us wisdom, guidance, and hope. All scripture is God breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training us in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16)

Reading The Bible shouldn’t feel like a chore , it should make us feel excited for we a reading the Words from our Heavenly Father, our Creator. When we understand the power of Gods Word, it takes root into our hearts and minds, and becomes the lamp for our feet.

Jesus is The Word that became Flesh (John 1:14) he brought light into the darkness of this world. When we follow Jesus, we are following down the path of light. For though Christ , we are the light of the world (Matthew 5:14) Let your light shine for the world to see, this will also light your path to righteousness

The grass whithers and flowers fade, but the Word of God will endure forever (Isaiah 40:8) Let the eternal Word be your guide through this dark world , Jesus is the Truth, Life, and Way, let him be your guide to eternal life Amen

The Word of God

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. Matthew 24:35

Many cast doubt or validity of The Bible, the Word of God. But as Jesus promised his Word will never pass away. That means we can have confidence that the Bible we are reading today is still the same Word of God spoken back then.

But many will say why there are so many translations of The Bible? You first need to understand that many Hebrew and Greek words could have multiple English translations.

For example the greek word agape means love (NIV) and charity (KJV) therefor both translations are correct even though there different English words.

God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19

It’s always important to remember God is the potter and we are the clay, just because we don’t understand doesn’t mean we shouldn’t obey.

We know the Bible is truth because God doesn’t lie. As Jesus said we shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free. When we listen to Gods word it breaks the chains of sin and corruption of this world.

The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” Isaiah 40:8

Just as Jesus said, God said thru Isaiah. This world and everything in it will eventually pass away but Gods Word and his Kingdom are eternal.

Many today will say the Bible is outdated and not relevant to today’s world. But know God has seen everything under the Sun, there is nothing new or a surprise to him. Gods word is still the same today, yesterday, and forever. It does not change to conform to the sins of the world

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17

The Word of God is a gift to guide us to eternal life. Our Lord Jesus was a gift who is the living Word and gave us grace. God does not change, the sins that were an abomination from The Torah are still an abomination today.

In an ever-changing world, God and his Word are a foundation we can build and trust on. Follow Jesus because he is the truth, life, and the way in Jesus Name Amen

The Word Became Flesh

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:14

In John 1:1 it tells us “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” So if the Word was God and the Word became Flesh (Jesus) its clearly identified Jesus was God in the flesh.

Jesus performed many miracles that displayed Gods Glory, he is the truth and spoke the truth while he was here, but many including today still refuse to listen.

John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. John 1:15

John The Baptist, who was also conceived by the Holy Spirit, as his mother was barren and elderly. He was the prophet and messenger for Jesus.  When he baptized Jesus he saw the Holy Spirit upon him and God’s voice declared that Jesus is The Messiah.

Just like with Jesus, nobody wants to hear the truth, so John was beheaded by the authorities.

And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. John 1:16-17

God delivered The law to Moses but because we are all sinners we needed the grace of Jesus to truly redeem us.  Does this mean the law doesn’t exist anymore, absolutely not.

When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior the Law of God should be in your heart, you can’t live in The Spirit if you don’t walk in The Spirit.

No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. John 1:18

Interesting in (Exodus 33:11) it tells us Moses spoke to God face to face, yet were told No Man has ever seen God. It’s obvious the one who Moses was speaking to was Jesus Christ. It’s no coicindence later in the Book of Matthew (Matthew 17) Jesus takes his disciples up on the mountain to meet Moses and Elijah.

God is not some old fairy tale , he was here. And he’s coming back again, Are You Ready? Does Jesus know you? Do you know Jesus? If not read the scripture below and believe

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9

Sharper than a Sword

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
There’s a reason why you should study and know the “Word of God” because not only is it full of wisdom and power. But this is a gift from God that is priceless and lead you to eternal life. It’s no surprise why the world is offended by the Word of God because the Word is truth and truth can’t be rebuked.
(2 Peter 1:21) “For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”
Non-believers will try to discredit The Bible by the authors who wrote the Bible. But they don’t understand the Bible was written by God thru humans by the Holy Spirit. Once you understand this you begin to see “The Power of the Word of God” as there is no situation or no problem that can’t be solved using The Bible.
(2 Timothy 3:16) “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
The Word of God is not only a great historical resource but we should use for our daily instruction. There is no problem under the sun that God hasn’t seen. If your feeling lonely, depressed, anxious, confused, ect. The Bible has scriptures and stories to guide you thru your daily life:
• Knowledge- Proverbs 3-5:6
• Rest- Matthew 11:28-30
• Overwhelmed Luke 18:27
• Love John 3:16
• Forgiveness Romans 8:1
• Wisdom 1 Corinthians 1:30
• Strength Philippians 4:13
• Fear 2 Timothy 1:7
• Loneliness Hebrews 13:5

(Isaiah 49:2) “He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in his quiver.
As the prophet Isaiah said God made his mouth like a Sword. What did he mean? He meant the Holy Spirit came thru him and spoke the powerful “ Words of God” that lead the nation of Israel back to redemption. We have the privilege to already have these Words giving to us in the Bible. Don’t be foolish and squander this gift from God. King Solomon’s only wish to God was to have wisdom, and we have all that wisdom right now. So the question is what are you going to do with this gift? Are you going to use your sword or allow the world to slay you?
