This one is for you ~ Yeah You

There is a shift taking place in the world that if we are not careful we will miss what is surely to come.(ask me how)  Whether you are a believer or you are not sure what you believe rest assure that we live and we will die.  Everyone knows that.  The question is what are you doing with your life at this moment at this particular time.  Have you answered the age old question W’s Who, What and Where am I.  I have been blessed to be guided by the Holy Spirit which builds my faith and my ministry. Although it was spoken in my hearing so long ago that it is finally coming to what God has set up for my Life.  So here I am begging at the feet of Jesus for you.  I believe that things happen to us are not my accidents in the sense that whether things are good or not so good happening in your life. God purpose and will for us would be fulfilled.  Please don’t be like so many who have pass on not fulfilling what God purpose for there life.  There was a study sometime ago of how many graves were full with supposed to be Apostles, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor  & Teachers.  Every time you look at your hand remember this and find out which is your gift.  This is good (see picture below)  It ‘s amazing that God can use whoever he wants for him to get the glory.  Some say why should He get the Glory…. I don’t believe God is mad at you for thinking that way because there ‘s a wealth of knowledge about him that folks have not tap into and therefore one may  think (or should I say many) this way.  I find it’s my duty Ladies & Gentlemen to tell you that there is probably a missing link in your life and that is Jesus the Christ.

15 Lessons on the Ministry Gifts of God

And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers.” (Ephesians 4:11)

You fit into one of these categories once you become a believer; Will you accept him? Confess and Repent so you can walk into you destiny.  Just say, Dear God, I am sinner, forgive me and I ‘m sorry for all that I did what was not of you.  I accept Jesus as Lord and believe that He is the Son of God.  Jesus, will you come into my mind, soul and Spirit that I may have eternal life.  Thank you for listening as I pray in Jesus Name.

There is a scripture Psalms 8:34 ESV -Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!

EXPOSITION

I wanted to give you some insight of what this means to be and then how a scholar of so long ago put it which I think interwoven in my thoughts.

As human beings we know that food and water is essential to our living.  If you can think of your best palate of food you ever tasted; can I tell you that there is something so much better.  In the culinary world I read an article of the 50 best dishes in the world.  If your food is listed as one of the main dishes when I think of this verse there is something even better than that 10k better than or better yet I can’t put a number on it.   Just as you identify the best meal look into the Word of God so you will boldly say “I have tasted and see” and He is Good~

Thomas Binney’s “Sermons,” 1869. V

Verse 8. Taste and see. There are some things, especially in the depths of the religious life, which can only be understood by being experienced, and which even then are incapable of being adequately embodied in words. O taste and see that the Lord is good. The enjoyment must come before the illumination; or rather the enjoyment is the illumination. There are things that must be loved before we can know them to be worthy of our love; things to be believed before we can understand them to be worthy of belief. And even after this — after we are conscious of a distinct apprehension of some spiritual truth, we can only, perhaps, answer, if required to explain it, in the words of the philosopher to who the question was put, “What is God?” “I know, if I am not asked.” Thomas Binney’s “Sermons,” 1869.(amazing how this is so prevalent even today )

God’s Hand of Ministry

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God… “ (1 Pet. 5:6)

When Christ ascended, He took His whole ministry mantle, divided it, and gave it in five parts to men and women. All five are needed to perfect, mature and equip the saints “till we all come to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of… the fullness of Christ” (Eph. 4:13). The function of these gifts, also sometimes called equipping or ascension gifts, and how they fit together can better be understood through the analogy of how a physical hand functions.

Body, Mind & Soul : My Purpose

Grace & Peace,

First I want to say Grace & Peace to all my brothers and sisters who I believe prayed for me and deep within their spirits they knew the Lord was dealing with me in identifying my purpose in my journey on my commitment before 2016 is over I pray I bring someone to know Christ.  I pray all of you are being blessed with God ‘s  grace and mercy as I’m sure you are as I’ve gotten a chance to read some of your posts and surely by sharing the gospels that indeed your purpose is to glorified God; I say  To God be the Glory!

I’m so hooked on Jesus that I’m excited I mean truly excited to know that I’m his daughter and its just right to know who I am and whom I belong too!

I’ve been studying on Spirit, Mind & Soul and I know my flesh hasn’t put it together but my spiritual being has because I never thought of this as being my trinity or never though of mind, body and soul as a truine.  I know of it  as being three but I never said”Oh this is a trinity as in truine”.  The bible clearly distinguish that we have mind, body and soul:  Duh; Genesis 1:26 “God said, Let us make man in Our image” (Genesis 1:26). We know that God is a Trinity. The Holy Trinity is clearly set forth in the Apostle Paul’s benediction that closed his Second Corinthian Epistle: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen”  Therefore, we have to be a truine being because he is created in the image of God.

The two following passages from the Bible clearly establish the fact that man is a triune being composed of spirit, soul, and body:

I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 5:23).

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow (body), and is a discern-er of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).

Our Lord Himself said, in what we call “The Great Commission”: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” (Matthew 28:19). Created in the image of God, man is likewise a trinity. He has a spiritual nature that is separate and distinct from the body in which it dwells. This is my calling.  Oh yeah I know what my purpose is; to Evangelize, Lead Praise & Worship;  Intercessor and start a mini bible study.  Hallelujah thank you Holy Ghost for the revelation.

P.S. I wanted my title to read:  Resurrected 🙂

BLESSINGS!

 

WORD

The bible speaks in John 1:1; “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”  Thank you for reading this blog as I hope that you will join me in this journey which I find that no matter where you are there is always a beginning.

Part 2; manifest this April of 2016.  I had to digress to where I am for a moment just to see where I am. The first paragraph was sitting in my draft since January 2016.   I thank God as always for pulling me to where he wants me even though I seemed to be pulling me up to where I think I should be.  The God that we serve is not a God like us we have a finite mind whereas; He is infinite.  If  we can truly grasp that God is not like men; seriously we can’t think of God as we would ourselves but unfortunately this is what we do.  For those who know this walk that we are walking it’s so easy to think that what we do seems so right but I’m sorry there is something in the inside that just doesn’t sit right in your spirit no matter how right you may think it seems.  I mean at some point (sometimes its quick and sometimes not) but there should be something in you that tells you that it’s not right. For me I think when Jesus said that if we have the faith the size of a mustard seed we can move mountains.  My new revelation for the last three to five years and growing is that I’m seriously going in deep with the word God.  Now I’m looking at the word Mustard and Seed.  The taste of mustard can be bitter and yet delicious when you combined it with some other dishes; but more importantly I’m looking at the word seed; (don’t ask how I’m connecting these two words) but you would know by now that I try to flow with the Holy Ghost in what He gives me) One could argue that when Jesus mentioned that the seed was the smallest seed on the earth; we have some skeptics say that the mustard seed wasn’t the smallest seed..  but when we read and the study the bible we have to go deeper by searching, reading, listening connecting with  (learned men and women who study this word daily) KJV 2Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  First Jesus knew exactly what and who he was addressing.  During that region the mustard seed was the smallest seed. Since the Jews were very familiar with the mustard seed, Jesus referred to what they could understand and appreciate. In their world, where they lived, planted, and harvested, they understood that the mustard seed was the smallest of the seeds they normally planted. And still, it could germinate, take root, and flourish, eventually becoming an eight- to 10-foot tall shrub.

So, as I reflect and take a seat back; I would like to think that I too needed Jesus speaking to me on how I need to focus on my blog ministry and how it should go. Start out small get a feel on how  I needed to reevaluate where I am and what is the next move.    Quite frankly, those that have been commented on my post with likes; I was getting a little big headed (just a tiny bit and I needed to remind myself again that it’s not about me).  In saying this it’s important for me to remember when I use this forum to evangelize that it takes more than one may think when they are very new to this.  I know that I have to trust and depend on only what the Holy Spirit is directing for me to write.  I know now too that I have to  have a connection and dialog sharing with people who have experience and are learned folks; it’s important for me to not think that God is only talking to me but to have that connection on a personal level  connecting with God fearing bloggers who God is speaking to as well in such a time as this.  I would like to think that I too am part of the remnant in this generation (Father, I believe this platform is one of the ways you are using your children) What a blessing; one of my favorite websites; “GotQuestionsOrg” Elmer Tow; Jesus made it clear that this remnant would be small when compared to the number of people on the earth throughout history. “Many” will find the way to eternal destruction, but “few” will find the way to eternal life (Matthew 7:13-14). We who believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior can, with great peace, rest in the fact that we belong to the “remnant.”

I pray that someone will  be so stirred up that they too will go deeper in their study and then let God use them for his Kingdom Building as well. My ultimate goal is to reach where I am being used for community base movement connection using my gifts to be part of the bigger picture in preaching the Gospel to the lost.  I hear in my spirit when the preacher will ask “Will there be just one” ~ Come to Jesus – Millions have come and there is still room for you at the cross.

BLESSINGS!

 

Yes, we are our Brother ‘s Keeper – Part 1

Genesis 4King James Version (KJV)

And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.

And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord.

And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:

But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?

10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.

11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;

12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.

13 And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can bear.

14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.

15 And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

16 And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

There was no difference between Cain and Abel; other than that their offering was different. In essence they were both sinners like you and me.  We all heard this cliche “Are you your brother ‘s keeper” I heard one christian person that I know personally say “No” I’m tired of the nonsense of a person she knew and as she was going off I said without a shadow of a doubt that Yes, we are our brothers keeper. Cain isn’t much different than a whole lot us in today ‘s world.  The bible doesn’t give a clear background of the two brothers background like how were they when they were children etc.

Cain & Abel: The book of Genesis produce the first murder

People in the story
Cain means ‘acquiring’ or ‘producing’.
Abel means ’emptiness’ or ‘futility’.
God: in this story, God is a manifestation of Order and Harmony. The murder of Abel disrupts and offends universal harmony. There is a price to pay.

The story has 3 episodes:

  • Cain and Abel are sons of Adam, Genesis 4:1-2
  • Cain and Abel offer sacrifices to God, Genesis 4:3-7
  • Cain murders Abel and God punishes him, Genesis 4:8-16

Cain and Abel are the sons of Adam and Eve. Their father and mother committed the first sin. The two young men sin against each other, and this is the second sin. Mankind sins first against God, and then against each other.
At the heart of the story is a new idea: that lawlessness is contrary to the will of God, and when it happens, the good as well as the wicked suffer.

The Story in Brief
Cain was the first farmer. His brother Abel was an animal herder. They both offered a sacrifice to God. Because God was pleased with Abel’s offering of a lamb (God sacrifice was the shedding of blood) with the animals during this time)  but not with Cain’s offering from his harvest (one would think that since Cain was a tiller of the field that it would seemed that it was ok to give this as his offering) but that’s where we fail it’s not about us it’s about what God wants from us) , Cain was jealous. In a fit of anger he killed his brother. The earth itself turned against him: he could no longer grow crops, and became a wanderer without a home. Not only is there consequences of our sin (something we did) I believe this is were we fall short as I was thinking is there such a thing as knowing and “unknowing sins” and wow the Holy Spirit says yes ~ because when Cain slayed his brother he wasn’t thinking that the blood that flow out of him in the ground (which he was a tiller of fields; which I have to imagined he loved to do) that God cursed the ground for him not to work the grounds every again.  Can you imagine God taking away from you something that you love.  In fact, that’s what happens when we sin even today.  It’s so important to repent and confess and mean it when we go to God; So now I see the term “unknowing sin” for Cain; although murder is a sin; It almost seems that God is telling us to look what happen to Cain he didn’t think killing his brother any consequences; therefore you NEED to know that there are consequences of our sins and yes, God will forgive our sins and remember it no more; but I believe God wants us to know that we better be really careful (know) before we take action on our sins.

We also have to remember that there wasn’t any specific instructions that God gave to both of the brothers when asked for a sacrifice.  What is important is  Hebrews 11:4

4 BY FAITH Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. BY FAITH he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And BY FAITH Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.
Paul considered Abel’s actions so important to understanding faith, he offered Abel as his very-first example of a “hero of faith”: although having no instructions to follow, Abel trusted his offering would be pleasing to God (although he didn’t know for certain).  That’s what faith is: confidence that what you’re doing is pleasing to God, without having any tangible evidence or feedback upon which to rely (of course, once God voiced His approval of Abel’s offering, faith was no longer needed: Abel’s demonstration of faith was then validated).

Notice that while Abel’s sacrifice is described in great detail (“fat portions of some of the firstborn of his flock”), Cain’s offering is mentioned in passing (“some of the fruits of the soil”), i.e. there’s no mention of being Cain’s ‘first-fruits’ (i.e. the best of his crops).  The author is glossing over Cain’s offering, just as God did; and while not rejected per se, Cain and his offering are not seen by God as being particularly noteworthy.  Cain didn’t exactly fail (ie his offer wasn’t rejected), but he also didn’t earn God’s praise.  Cain simply met minimum standards: he just passed.  That’s just like falling into the trap when you hear believers say I just want to sit outside the gate of heaven; No you want your crown and all the benefits that God has in store for. You want it all -you want to be in the gate sitting at the grand table with the Father!

Find your Prayer Style: Part 1

Prayer comes in different forms for different people.  I believe only that there is a right way and wrong way to pray.  I only say this because just as our God is a God order therefore, we should be of order when it comes to any spiritual style of prayer when we come to God.  Therefore, everyone is entitled to their own personal style of prayer bur it should be done in decency and in order.  There are some that pray in a low monotonous voice and  some very boisterous and loud.  Whatever your style  find it and make it yours.  Here are a few men that you may or may not have read about in our history books in real time.  God Bless you!

Men of Prayer

Every man and every woman that God has used to halt this sin-cursed world and set it going Godward has been a Christian of prayer. Martin Luther arose from his bed and prayed all night, and when the break of day came he called his wife and said to her, “It has come.” History records that on that very day King Charles granted religious toleration, a thing for which Luther had prayed.

John Knox, whom his queen feared more than any other man, was in such agony of prayer that he ran out into the street and fell on his face and cried, “O God, give me Scotland or I’ll die.” And God gave him Scotland and not only that, he threw England in for good measure.

When Jonathan Edwards was about to preach his greatest sermon on “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” he prayed for days; and when he stood before the congregation and preached it, men caught at the seats in their terror, and some fell to the floor; and the people cried out in their fear, “Mr. Edwards, tell us how we can be saved!”

The critical period of American history was between 1784 and 1789. There was no common coinage, no common defense. When the colonies sent men to a constitutional convention, Benjamin Franklin, rising with the weight of his four score years, asked that the convention open with prayer, and George Washington there sealed the bargain with God. In that winter in Valley Forge, Washington led his men in prayer and he got down on his knees to do it.

When the battle of Gettysburg was on, Lincoln, old Abe Lincoln, was on his knees with God; yes, he was on his knees from five o’clock in the afternoon till four o’clock in the morning, and Bishop Simpson was with him.

“And whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son” (John 14:13). No man can ever be saved without Jesus Christ. There’s no way to God unless you come through Jesus Christ. It’s Jesus Christ or nothing.

“Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1

 

Five Books of Moses

Many of us have been taught of Jesus in many different ways.  Some grew up in households where it has been taught either by a parent, grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle or friend. There has been some close encountered for most people who proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ but I get excited when the newly converted gets excited when they discover this Jesus as God, Jesus as the baby, son and man and how they can identify with the prophet Jeremiah 20:9

Jeremiah 20:9 New International Version (NIV)

But if I say, “I will not mention his word
    or speak anymore in his name,”
his word is in my heart like a fire,
    a fire shut up in my bones.
I am weary of holding it in;
    indeed, I cannot.

Oh my God, I feel that this scripture  is one mantra for many Pastors, Evangelist and Missionaries that keeps them going into the field preaching the Gospels. (Wherever they may be preaching in their churches; preaching in their homes,traveling to different countries or cities preaching this Gospel until it reaches  throughout the world.  Help me Holy Ghost. Ephesians 4: 10 he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, 4:11 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ. So it’s up to us to accept what God is calling us where we fit in these categories.  Most importantly find it.  I was sharing with someone recently about how we as people of God get away or loose focus on our personal mission for God sharing.  Please note; as I’m learning and I Thank God; that you have to find time to keep God in the equation. To be quite honest, I believe that people who know they are call for the Mission of God should be under a great leader who hears from God and teaches from the pulpit on how to share the Gospel and following their calling.  The person I was speaking to was sharing how there are so many programs going for the entire month of March. And I thought as the Holy Spirit had told me in 2015 that 2016 will not be me spending time in church all day on Sundays, different events and programs for weekly programs etc etc.  To long I’ve been doing this and I immediately, thought about a preacher who once said “How many people who didn’t answer their call are buried in their grave who hadn’t fulfilled their mission”  I declare and decree that I won’t be one of them and pray that you wont either.  Since God knows our beginning and our end He already sees where he wants us in the ministry.  Can I leave you with.. That there is a divine appointment specifically tailored just for you.  We have been ordained to preach the Gospel.  The book of Genesis shows that there was no death before Adam fall.Yes, Adam was the first man  God creation for the human race.   Angels preexisted before men.  My God I’m not sure, in fact, I know that I can’t do this study by myself when it comes to what took place in the heavens the Gap between V1-V2.  Nevertheless, I will search and continue to study.  I need real people who know the word of prayer to pray for me on this. If anyone knows a good commentary on the book of Genesis; please share.

BLESSINGS

 

Oh No ~ Don’t Replace God

Grace and Peace be unto you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!

It is truly an honor and a privilege to come before you for my first online bible study.  I literally cried to God this evening as I said “Come on God”  as I cried out and then I had to repent as I said  Father I meant Lord I need you to help me on this journey that you have set out for me to do reaching the lost on this social platform. I believe He laughed at me in a good way as He does and here I am.  I took a walk with my dog; believe it or not his name is Bandit from a show that I looked it when I was child.  This period of my life was special as it reminds me to this day when my siblings (1 sister and 3 brothers) would sit at this one TV and enjoy watching the show called Johnny Quest.  It was a popular show back then and you can still find it I believe on some of the networks that I’m sure is showing these reruns.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonny_Quest_%28TV_series%29

Let us Pray:  Father in the name of Jesus I come to you right now at this hour asking for your Holy Ghost Power to take control of my thoughts anoint these hands as they type on the keyboard that I not miss interrupt or compromise what you have given me to share to every reader that happens to come across searching  on this forum for something that they may be yearning for;but they do not know.  I pray Father that the not knowing (folks) will find you as only you know how to get our attention and that same not knowing person will be encourage to seek you God Almighty and most of all that you get the glory as we go into study.  Dear Lord open our eyes that we may see open our ears that we may hear your voice in Jesus Name.  Amen

The below link showed that there were 100 bible versus on idolatry  which I would like for you to visit and investigate what the word says about idolatry.

https://www.openbible.info/topics/idolatry

Everyone in way or the other practices this sin knowingly and I believe unknowingly.  To set the stage let’s go back to the book of Genesis although we can find this type of sin from the first book to the last book of the bible; Actually, I think the Holy Spirit purposely knew the bible would in some way be out of order as we see it. (Here is a good resource I found that will help you in your spiritual search of God)  http://www.bible-history.com/biblestudy/charts/old-testament-books-english-order.html

Genesis – Revelation; just so that you in I can digest it’s contents to discover and discuss just how sin enter, how sin fell on holy men who knew God more so, I believe than any of us.  It I can just say from every book of the bible since I’m studying in the book of Genesis (My God look how the Holy Spirit showed up for me at this study as I am in the study of Genesis with Chuck Missler) Father I thank you for your presence.  If I can give a subtitle: It would be (A)  what are your personal characteristics of an Idolater?  For me I have a Constance reminder when I’m in that place thinking of one of the greatest movies every told “The Ten Commandments” while Moses was upon the mountain after he brought them out of Egypt.  Moses always done what was natural for him to do and that was to speak with God face to face.  As Moses was spending time with God, the people grew uneasy.  It’s amazing how the people seen all these miracles that had taken place in them coming out of Egypt how sin enters when we are not careful.  It’s also amazing how Jesus was also preaching on how we should get to know Him in our own personal lives.  Just as the people felt insecure without their leader Moses they turned to his brother Aaron and begged him to make them a god so that they might not be alone.  I remembered feeling bad for Aaron for being persuaded.   I believe that Aaron was at such a venerable moment or maybe felt at that moment that he was finally getting respected as a leader and he somehow use that opportunity as he also had some weariness about his brother and in fact he was at an old age along with Moses during all of this journey and it had to be much on the mind to take in what had happen.   Maybe he finally got a hold of his purpose but instead of him ceasing this opportunity to commune with the people to comfort them by preaching to them I pray I would have said if I was in shoes~ Don’t  ya’ll remember what just happen when we were Egypt?  The ten plagues, the night of pass over, the parting of the seas.  Mind you God seen what was happening down at the foot of the mountain when all of this was happening. (making a golden calf as a god; this is idolatry)   My question is when God told Moses that he will destroy the people and make a great nation of Him alone. What conversation was actually taken place? (I guess this will be one of my questions to him when Moses and the rest of the prophets meets us)  As Moses pleaded with God not to destroy the Israelite? God heard him and granted him his wish.  As Moses descended the mountain and he looked angrily upon his people as they were dancing and singing before the golden calf and in his anger he hurled the stone tables from his hands, and they broke at the foot of the mountain.  He took the calf and burned it.  As the stoned was burned he took it and ground it into a power, sprinkled it in water, and made the people drink.  The children of Israel mourned in shame after they drank? (I guess this was Moses intention as he made this power) someone help me on this.  Again, Moses had to climbed back to the mountain to ask for forgiveness for his people.  Can you believe another 40 days and 40 nights, (Do you know who else spent time in the wilderness 40 days and 40 nights?  (Jesus) Isn’t this something (just a side note)  Thank God that He did grant permission for the people to go forward with the plan to Canaan with the two new stones of the commandments.  What’s amazing is that it took another 40 years in the wilderness (actually they took 40 years going in circles because the trip was actually a short) some bible scholars say the trip was actually 11 days for the people to reached Canaan and how God showed Moses the land but God wouldn’t have Moses to enter the land.  God had another plan for Moses to be with him.  So Moses died after accomplishing what he had set out do with the plan that God had for him so many years before.  I believe when God told Moses that he wasn’t going into the land of Canaan that he was happy because he knew that he was really going to a home like no other.

How can we know that we know that we know that we have only rest in Him and not nothing or anything in this world should take us away from that.  Lay down those idolatry mannerism that will block what God has for each and everyone of his children.

Until we meet again.

Hold on to God ‘s unchanging hands!
