A little tidbit:
The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed. Psalm
Do you feel oppressed? Understandably, this can lead to depression. Check this out Oppression=Depression, anyone paying attention? This is an x=y equation!
But, we have a verse, a promise we can hold on to- Tightly!!!
Bless The LORD! O my soul and all that is within me bless His holy name.
He is All Mighty forever, He is over all, He made all, knows all; by His grace we have all we need to praise Him, worship Him and bring our requests, needs and wants before Him.
Amazingly, in His presence we have comfort, fulfillment and peace-a peace that passes all understanding! It makes no sense to us! We working hard and seeking to do His will are supplied according to our needs, not ‘wants’. He supplies all your needs according to hiscendless riches in Glory, Hallelujah! Again, I point out what is clear needs! We need to like Job, work the land (hard at our jobs/responsibilities/assignments) glorify God as The center of our Lives and in our Life, He erects a fence about us, Amen
We touched on asking and not receiving, anyone know why?
“When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.”
For real! This is in The Word.
Father Lord, at times we may ask,
and not receive,
touch our Spirit with Your Spirit,
that we might ask according to Your will
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen
As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God.
– Psalms 42:1
A hunger, a thirst, a need. We in God are satiated with His presence, His fullness; in Him, we are satisfied and made complete.
Heavenly Father, thank You the completion we experience through You,
fill us today
go before us
be glorified in all our actions in Jesus’ name, Amen
We spoke of an absence of sacrifice to God. Living in His will is sacrificing the flesh to Live in the Spirit. I am aware we spoke of the lack of need for and of sacrifice to honor the LORD. king David said it best:
Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies. In this even we are spoken to, untruths, even “half-truths” are outside the realm of righteousness. Do we feel that the truth will bare us? Better to be born than wrapped in a garment of untruth. It defiled all! Imagine, if your friends, family, loved ones were to find you out- what pain, disappointment. We are on a continuous stage, our ‘secret’ acts are viewed by witnesses on both sides. Imagine this “To believers, God was entrusted your care to a guardian angel!” That Angel, praise God always is witness to your acts. More So, God knows the heart; your thoughts. “The eyes of the Lord are everywhere,
keeping watch on the wicked and the good.” Proverbs15:3
God searches the Spirit! If you were to think thoughts what you ‘hold in your heart’ is known! (Romans 8:27) For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 1 Corinthians2:11 Even if I am wrong, your memory is a record of all you see, do and think! Are you ready to give account? Not many are. Search your hearts, purge your Spirits, turn to God. Might seem a difficult task. Dwell on this!

Many, O LORD my God, are Thy wonderful works which Thou hast done, and Thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto Thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast Thou opened to hear Your Word and walk in Your way: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required, Thou has required Your trust of my Spirit, in You do I trust Lord, Amen Psalm 40:4-6
Paraphrased by leading in Jesus’ name. For none shall add or delete from His Word.
“And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” Revelation 22:19
Hallelujah! We are in The Word. Let us pray:
Thank You Father for this day, thank You for Your grace and Love. Your Love means everything to me. I am blessed to have you in my Life. Hallelujah for Jesus, we praise You for Your Spirit residing in us. Father, help me conform to Your word that I may be blessed Living Your will, I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen
Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
Now that we have discussed “Blessing The Lord” our Spirits are free to shout Hallelujah to God for saving me! O we shall shout Hallelujah, we shall shout Hallelujah for His mercy is forever and has been through the ages!
Lord, we bless You and magnify You. Your name is awesome! Father, we praise You and raise our voices before you. You are our all. Thank You for Your Love, when You adopted the Isrealites as Your children, as Your nation, we were but outsiders. Father, You sent your only begotten Son, a part of You to rectify what was, and how things were. Alleluia for this day, this time, this blessing Father, through You, we have all. Father, hold me close, this I am sure sounds selfish, but allow Your light to shine through me and touch those who stand around, in Jesus’ name, Amen
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young (or young in The faith), but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in Love, in faith and in purity. And devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching.
Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
1 Timothy 4:12-16 (paraphrased)
Then I will rejoice in the LORD. I will be glad because He rescues me.
– Psalms 35:9
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
– Phillipians 4:4
We are touched by so many pointers to Rejoice, pray, praise! Let this be a day of giving to The LORD what He deserves from the bottom of our hearts.
And as you do, be blessed, IJN
Promise time! You can call me “The Promise guru.” But, seriously each page we turn or listen to we are blessed, I guess for one who share a (like you) they will be called “sharers.” But our job is to share, for each soul won to the Kingdom we build up our reward.
“And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.’” Mark 16:15 NKJV
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14 NKJV
“Declare His glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples.”Psalms 96:3 NKJV
“Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— saying with a loud voice, ‘Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.’”
Revelation 14:6-7 NKJV
It goes on and on. We are supposed to spread the gospel. In my usual manner, I will gently ask, have you spread The Word today? Do your actions spread the word? Do the words from your mouth, your thoughts, feelings, your whole self spread the word? We must live by example.
I just thought I’d share a two pronged message. This definitely leans on “Live and Let live.” We must show example; let us read:
“Those who do wickedly against the covenant He shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”
Daniel 11:32 NKJV
As I said, this is a two pronged promise. Essentially the Rich get richer and the believers more blessed and their needs are supplied according to His Riches in endless glory. We have discussed this, if His glory is so GREAT that mortal man would be slain to gaze upon it. There is no limit to His glory. It astounds the mind, but what is the most expensive article that we know of? No, not gold, sapphire or ruby’s they do not come close! Let us take a look:
Painite — $9,000 per gram.
Taaffeite — $20,000 per gram or $4,000 per carat.
Tritium — $30,000 per gram.
Diamond — $55,000 per gram.
Californium — $25-27 million per gram.
Antimatter — $62.5 trillion per gram.
Bonus: Jade stone — $170 million.
Mind you, these are all naturally occurring! They were placed here on Earth, made by our Father! If we can run these down, His extent is unimaginable! Unimaginable!!! Ask and you shall receive, seek and ye shall find. Knock and the door shall be opened.
I will state that some might shy away if and when such is bestowed on them. With what you have now; Do you give to the poor? What examples have you set? Blessings are pending action! They have been poured out! Act so that you may receive!
It is ‘strange’ to see people sitting, waiting for the Heavens to open up and pot blessings down. Yes, The Bible says “Be still and know I am God.” Psalm 46:10
It does not say “Be lazy and hope.” We read just a tad content that encourages work, first we read if you don’t sow, you do not reap. Let us read:
For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.
2 Thessalonians 3:10
But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
1 Timothy 5:8
Then the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it.
An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,
1 Timothy 3:2
and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands, just as we commanded you, so that you will behave properly toward outsiders and not be in any need.
1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
Then he went up from there to Bethel; and as he was going up by the way, young lads came out from the city and mocked him and said to him, “Go up, you baldhead; go up, you baldhead!” When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number.
2 Kings 2:23-24
As we mentioned, there is work to be done! For the BIGGEST exanple, let us read:
sin causes a distinction in the roles of men and women that was not previously there. In other words, in the Evangelical Feminists view, prior to the fall man and woman shared total equality not only in value but in roles also. The fall, then, is considered the culprit of why today so many people see women as inferior to men and, in the feminists view, Jesus Christ came to redeem what has been lost at the fall and restore women to equality with men in every way (e.g., women can now be pastors and equally the spiritual head of the home, etc.).
However, it does not seem to be immediately obvious that the fall is what brought about gender distinctions. Consider the following from Genesis 3:16 where God is describing the curse of sin and its effect on the relationship between men and women (husband and wife). “To the woman he said, “I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”
Particularly we look at the statement, “Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.” This, the Evangelical Feminist would say, is where gender differentiation comes from, the curse of sin. When God pronounced this judgment due to sin it was then that women started to be deemed different from men. But is this really as clear as they make it to be?
Please feel free to read more at https://carm.org/about-gender-roles-equality-genesis
As stated, where credit is due it is given. A whole couple of sermons/teachings/sharing can be done on this and when we get to relationships, we will go indepth.
Wow! A whole teaching and we just started. I will let this sink in and we can take it from here next round.
“Why is she/he acting that way?”
“Crazier things have happened.”
“They just seem so ‘calm.’ Which I know I wouldn’t be if I was in their shoes.”
But you are not, are you? Resting on the promises which come to be is the key.
“We put our hope in the LORD. He is our help and our shield.”
– Psalms 33:20
So, we have a hope that cannot be erased! A shield that protects against all. We are believers!
I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify Thy name for evermore. One thing follows another in The Word and in faith, we believe and it is! For great is Thy mercy toward me: and Thou hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell.
As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, my God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?
When you give God your all, suddenly we develop a hunger, a thirst for Him. No wonder the apostle Paul said: “I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far…”
A hunger? Yup! Let us run through a few well placed verses. But first The Isrealites in the desert experienced what their forefathers or anyone in His-story had ever experienced-Manna. That is a worldly hunger. What we are talking about here is a Spiritual hunger. Once you have really tasted…There is no satisfying the hungert, we dine at The table and by His grace are blessed and filled by dining and feeding. Yup! Greed is not wrong here. If you have tasted of the goodness, it is hard to get your fill!
Lets see what The Word says:
“Like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation…”
1 Peter 2:2
“I, the LORD, am your God, Who brought you up from the land of Egypt; Open your mouth wide and I will fill it.”
Like we just shared. But, we go on and we see this expressed so completely:
“He humbled you and let you be hungry, and fed you with manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD.”
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”
“For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.”
And we end with the appropriate verse for this share:
“O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water.”
I think we had best salve this hunger with a word of prayer.
Father LORD, You are our everything. The more we embark to taste of Your AWESOME richness and GLORY, by Your Grace, the hungrier we get. Wanting nothing But You in each second of our beings. Hallelujah! We have tasted, we want more. We feed in Your fields knowing that as an AWESOME shepherd like David was. We need not worry for Your hand is over us, we praise You. Father, beside Thee, there is none. Fill us with Your Spirit, guide us with Your Love. You are EVERYTHING! Our beginning, our end, our all in Jesus’ name, Amen
At times we might wonder, but it has been said, we are blessed, blessed indeed:
“Brothers and sisters:
The Spirit comes to the aid of our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit Himself intercedes with inexpressible groanings.
And The One who searches hearts
knows what is the intention of the Spirit,
because He intercedes for the holy ones
according to God’s will.”
Being in the Spirit is awesome with The Spirit within us. Our moans and sighs are conveyed in a form we at times do not understand. As said above, we are blessed and blessed indeed. In Jesus’ name we have received The fullness of God- His Spirit! When the Isrealites were ‘escaping’ from Egypt to the promised land, they had “by day the Lord went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night.” Exodus13:21
God led them, but in Exodus 33:20 God says to Moses, “But,” He said, “you cannot see My face, for no one may see Me and live.” If God led them, it was His Spirit, for they gazed upon it and it led them! Alleluia!!! We have the same Spirit of The Most High existing in us.
I know a lot is being shared, but knowing this can and shall we do wrong? To iron out the creases in understanding “Do we know what we have within?” Not only that, but our hearts are known. As shared, as heavy as it may be “with God there are absolutely no secrets”, I must sau έτσι είναι to this for ‘so it is’.
Was reading and was touched by this, a prayer to our Father:
There is no god besides you who has the care of all, that You need show you have not unjustly condemned.
For Your might is the source of justice;
Your mastery over all things makes You lenient to all.
For You show Your might when the perfection of Your power is disbelieved;
and in those who know You, You rebuke temerity.
And for those who need a refresher course:
Definition of temerity
1: Unreasonable or foolhardy contempt of danger or opposition : rashness, recklessness
2: A rash or reckless act
But though You are master of might, You judge with clemency,
and with much lenience You govern us;
for power, whenever You will, attends You.
And You taught Your people, by these deeds,
that those who are just must be kind;
and You gave Your children good ground for hope that You would permit repentance for their sins.

We have been taught to “Let Love and faithfulness never leave you.” We read ‘faithfulness’, what is this? It is true, devoted, staunch following of God’s will in our lives. Being Faithful, constant, loyal with the qualities of stability, dependability, and devotion.
Faithful implies long-continued and steadfast fidelity to whatever one is bound to by a pledge, duty, or obligation. In commiting our way to Christ we have taken a HUGE step in faith. And we pray: “Bind us together LORD; with a chord that cannot be broken.”
We must bind Love and faithfulness around our necks,
We must write them on the tablet of our hearts.
Then we will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to Him,
and He will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3: 3-6
We have looked to define “Blessed”, are you blessed? I have to ask. What does that mean? Any one??? I can stop here, and a few definitions might come forth. But, we will move on- I have runvaccross many definitions:
1. To be in The Family of Christ.
2. To be forgiven and washed clean.
3. When all ‘old’ things have passed away, and we witness in our Lives that all things are become new. Mind you, I did not say ‘like’-new, The Word says NEW (Full-Stop)
I could go on, but wanted to share even more, a weekend treat. I have to share, we have heard “Meditate on The Word.” Do you??? I will share some mediation-ial (as in functional/practical/useful) verses:
“Blessed are those
whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered. Meaning as Christians, Children of The most High, we are blessed.
Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord will never count against them.”
So, in effect we are all blessed. Uhh! “You don’t want to be blessed?” I think I can guess your answer. We will leave it at that. We are blessed! Blessed to be Children of the most High and start to realize why we are here. When I say that, I think-we have purpose in our actions School, so we can learn; Work, so we can earn…. But, Life??? So, we can Live. But why??? I can ask, what is your purpose in Life? Do you know??? Yes, I have asked this numerou times! Trust me, I will ask again and again. When someone gets up and says “To do His will and be blessed doing it!” I will say “Awesome! But weren’t you blessed before you started doing His will?”
Homework y’all, something to meditate on! Get busy!!! AND stay awesomely blessed!!! Now! I can say that and not have people say “What does he mean?”
We will discuss this more over time-Have an awesome weekend!
For His anger lasts only a moment,
but His favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.
I will be honest, I dreamt of this verse and ‘read’ in my sleepy fog, “His Angels….” It was amazing that I thought for a second It said “His ‘Angel’s’ last only a minute….’ In my sleepy fog, I quickly in my browser typed “His “Angel”….” To see what it could possibly mean. Noe to explain… I was ‘soundly’ asleep and it popped into my head. I thought it said in my ‘dream’ “His Angel….” Quickly I awoke to God’s Glory (I also started ‘dreaming’ of something else, not to His glory….)
In my “half-asleep” status, I typed on my phone browser (I will be honest, by His grace many times I read The Word on my phone-Alleluia. This morning it was in my hand!!!! And I know I did not fall asleep that way.) We do have guardian Angels! In my ‘dream’, I argued and said “If His Angels last only a moment, it is for the good they do. I argued further, His guardian Angel is always there! We are on a Huge stage!” Then, I in my dream said “Satan has been for always since he was created, why would even he last but for a moment….” I shot up, wide awake and put “Angels” last but for a moment, it kept coming up “anger” and I wondered if I mistyped it, sat bolt upright, the ‘fleeting’ improper thought had since simply been erased from my memory. I definitely gave thanks and praise to our Father for waking me up in such a Loving way, to prove that His Word did not say “His Angel last but a moment…”
Proof that we do have a divine Spirit of recollection with us. I awoke and won the ‘argument’. The Bible saying “His anger…” With an “R” not an “L”. It turns out that I was ‘arguing’ The Word in my ‘dream’, being absolutely sure The Word did not say what I had ‘dreamt’ it to say! Everything lined up to His glory.
Thank God! Praise Jesus, thank You Holy Spirit for awaking me from that ‘dream’! People, I learned a lot…. A whole lot, to His glory…. One of the reasons I have encouraged knowing The Word in your heart is if in your dream (or in a wide awake state) you experience an ‘argument’ to the contrary of what your Spirit knows does not follow through, you have the ground to stand on and bring the ‘deck’ crashing down, with you standing there with and in the pride of The Holy Spirit prompting.
I am aware this is a rather long “Good Morning!” But awaking on that note, I wanted to share. Have an awesome day, to His glory, AMEN!
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philippians 4:6
“For nothing??? You mean I can…”
“Now hold on! Wait a second. It is stating that in the Spiritual you should keep all commands and we can express yourself in Spirit and in truth….”
“O so you mean in that way we should be careful for nothing and in the Spirit know that we are already on a/the stage, so be free to express ourselves with the knowledge of who God is?”
“Follow it through though “In every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
“I get it, this has to do with ourcl relationship with God The Father! We should be cautious in nothing while asking….”
“Kinda! You can ask for a million bucks, but if it’s not in His will; Uhhh! You can ask as hard as you want. But remember, God knows everything. I mean, He made The Universe around us…don’t get me started…I feel a sermon coming on.”
“Preach, preach, preach… Or should I say “Teach, teach, teach!!!””
“I am so done with you! I gotta go study! Be well!”
What would Jesus do?
“Hmmm! He wouldn’t check that person out, it might be judging! Or is it?”
“I really can’t stand this person (judge, judge, judge…and jury too.)”
I wonder what Jesus would do. I am a new creation, a brand new individual. Things are different….
Hold on! Wait a minute!!! “You are under ‘house’ arrest! Hmmm! What does The Scripture say? Just checking!”
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus!”
“Does that maybe ring a bell?”
“Hey! That’s not fair!!! The same mind??? He was The Son of God! A part of God! You ‘people’ always quote “The only and I repeat only begotten Son of God!”
Let me try and break it down more distinctly and Jesus said to His disciples: “I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
John 9:4-5 KJV
And He has given us a key example to follow. Let me ask you a couple of questions. You are on trial here!.
1. Are you ever impatient? Let me clarify. Do you get tired of ‘waiting’ for something? Ma’am/Sir, not a specific thing-Anything.
Time to move on to the next question, perhaps I will in the meantime let you think of your friends, family members, that guy/g’yal at work, at the store…wherever. Let’s let that sink in!
“Before the next question: The mindset of Jesus is what we are talking about.” Did He ever hit anybody? Speak harshly? Funny, even when He had a discourse with Satan, He did not tell! Only put him in the right place Scripturally.
“Yeah, yeah after the third temptation, He rebuked Satan, and Satan left Him for a season.” Once again our example.
We will do away with the ‘court questions’ for now. I will ask an even simpler question. “Have you been blessed with The Holy Spirit?” I know that can be a ‘touchy’ subject, but I am asking.
You know what? After Jesus left, The Holy Spirit was sent, and more than 2000 years is still with us. Have you received IT/HIM/The Holy Spirit into your life?
Quite interesting, the disciples and the early believers were ‘hiding’, when The Holy Spirit came upon them, they could keep quiet no more. Tongues of firecsat upon their heads (hence the term “Speaking in tongues.”) I am aware that we are yet to discuss this, but this sharing is that in our lives, our walk we should be like Jesus.
Be blessed y’all, we broke that down recently. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”
Just as a refresher, but I am challenging you to find out and share what it means. Are you blessed?
In The name of Jesus. Why??? “Are you people crazy!”
“Well, crazy we might be, but that is crazy about Jesus! Well stirred up, excited, in Love with!”
“Let me point a thing or two out, right quick…”
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
“Every knee, here I simply shrug!”
Have an awesome day y’all. Be blessed!
