If you are a child of many things, children are ignorant to the understanding of how a thing work —the mechanism and the functionality of it. Basically, if you play with fire, children, there is a possibility you will be burned.

Paying attention to the instructions of a parent warnings will benefit you even if the parent doesn’t take the time, at that moment of instruction, give detail explanation as to why you should reframe from doing or participating in an action.

I myself have stumbled many times from an inward knowing to halt the participation in a place or even reframe from dialogue in a conversation.  I have learned by many failed attempts of not listening to an inward individual but have a gained understanding and now, my will is no longer in this area but His will is right, every time. The Father knows best.

Let me take it to the word of God to give an example of participating in error.

Let’s take a read in 1Kings 22:2—

1 Kings 21:2 says, So Ahab spoke to Naboth, saying, “Give me your vineyard, that I may have it for a vegetable garden, because it is near, next to my house; and for it I will give you a vineyard better than it. Or, if it seem good to you, I will give you its worth in money.”—

Here we see that the vineyard in 1st Kings 21 is talking about Naboth being the owner of the vineyard positioned next to the palace.

In 1 Kings 21, Ahab approached Naboth asking him for his vineyard by saying, “give me”,  that vineyard that is part of his lineage blessings. Naboth replied to Ahab by saying “I will not give you my vineyard”.

Ahab even suggested to buy, but Naboth canceled the purchase and said no in given him his Vineyard for another type of vineyard.  In this story, Naboth was later setup by Ahab wife  Jezebel which Ahab gave Jezebel authority over his being leadership and king and had Naboth killed for the vineyard anyway by setting Naboth up with actions to make Naboth feel important sitting with high esteem official between two officials falsely accused Naboth.

And she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Naboth. She wrote in the letters, saying, Proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth with high honor among the people; and seat two men, scoundrels, before him to bear witness against him, saying, “You have blasphemed God and the king.” Then take him out, and stone him, that he may die.
1 Kings 21:8-10

Another biblical character where we see another purchase for the vineyard was the transaction between Judas and Priests leaders offering Judas 30 shackles of silver which Judas received and he gave Christ over to the Priest leaders. Afterward Judas hung himself for his treacherous actions.

In both cases, the Prophet Jehue shows to address Jezebel and the Prophet Jesus very presence judge righteously all things by the word of God.

Be content with knowing that you, the redemption with you and in all thing is alive and well.  Amen Amen and Amen

The Holy Word Of God — I remember this day, when a relative was 11 or 12, I sat down with him. I gave him my bible having him to read a few scriptures. As he was beginning to read, he yelled out to me and said, Auntie, I see red lines all over the pages. I stopped him from reading because I became nervous at what he was seeing. It became apparent that he had not given his heart to Christ yet. I immediately stopped him from reading; I didn’t know what to do at that moment.

.

I share this because of the many that are saved play so many manipulative games using self righteousness influences by logic narratives daily misguided by the influence strategy and most often not being led by our inward friendships — The Holy Spirit, who job is to testify of Jesus every second of the breath of life.  You see, after my nephew informed me he was seeing red lines over the pages of The Book, it confirms all over again The day of Jesus crucified experience for man kind and to not take the life of the righteousness of Jesus lightly especially if you have been given the exclusive deed to be an edifying gift to the body— a Levi gift.

Psalm 33

1Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous;

it is fitting for the upright to praise him.

2Praise the Lord with the harp;

make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.

3Sing to him a new song;

play skillfully, and shout for joy.

4For the word of the Lord is right and true;

he is faithful in all he does.

5The Lord loves righteousness and justice;

the earth is full of his unfailing love.

6By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,

their starry host by the breath of his mouth.

7He gathers the waters of the sea into jars a ;

he puts the deep into storehouses.

8Let all the earth fear the Lord;

let all the people of the world revere him.

9For he spoke, and it came to be;

he commanded, and it stood firm.

10The Lord foils the plans of the nations;

he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.

11But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever,

the purposes of his heart through all generations.

12Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,

the people he chose for his inheritance.

13From heaven the Lord looks down

and sees all mankind;

14from his dwelling place he watches

all who live on earth—

15he who forms the hearts of all,

who considers everything they do.

16No king is saved by the size of his army;

no warrior escapes by his great strength.

17A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;

despite all its great strength it cannot save.

18But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him,

on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,

19to deliver them from death

and keep them alive in famine.

20We wait in hope for the Lord;

he is our help and our shield.

21In him our hearts rejoice,

for we trust in his holy name.

22May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,

even as we put our hope in you.

I have this mini Ark of the Covenant on my mantel, as I am listening to worship music. The story Uzzah came to memory.

Answer: The story of Uzzah and the Ark of the Covenant is found in 2 Samuel 6:1-7 and 1 Chronicles 13:9-12. As the ark was being transported, the oxen pulling the cart stumbled, and a Levite named Uzzah took hold of the ark. God’s anger burned against Uzzah and He struck him down and he died. Uzzah’s punishment does appear to be extreme for what we might consider to be a good deed. However, there are the reasons why God took such severe action.

Proverbs 3

Wisdom Bestows Well-Being

1My son, do not forget my teaching,

but keep my commands in your heart,

2for they will prolong your life many years

and bring you peace and prosperity.

3Let love and faithfulness never leave you;

bind them around your neck,

write them on the tablet of your heart.

4Then you will win favor and a good name

in the sight of God and man.

5Trust in the Lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding;

6in all your ways submit to him,

and he will make your paths straight. a

7Do not be wise in your own eyes;

fear the Lord and shun evil.

8This will bring health to your body

and nourishment to your bones.

9Honor the Lord with your wealth,

with the firstfruits of all your crops;

10then your barns will be filled to overflowing,

and your vats will brim over with new wine.

11My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline,

and do not resent his rebuke,

12because the Lord disciplines those he loves,

as a father the son he delights in. b

13Blessed are those who find wisdom,

those who gain understanding,

14for she is more profitable than silver

and yields better returns than gold.

15She is more precious than rubies;

nothing you desire can compare with her.

16Long life is in her right hand;

in her left hand are riches and honor.

17Her ways are pleasant ways,

and all her paths are peace.

18She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her;

those who hold her fast will be blessed.

19By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations,

by understanding he set the heavens in place;

20by his knowledge the watery depths were divided,

and the clouds let drop the dew.

21My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,

preserve sound judgment and discretion;

22they will be life for you,

an ornament to grace your neck.

23Then you will go on your way in safety,

and your foot will not stumble.

24When you lie down, you will not be afraid;

when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

25Have no fear of sudden disaster

or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,

26for the Lord will be at your side

and will keep your foot from being snared.

27Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,

when it is in your power to act.

28Do not say to your neighbor,

“Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”—

when you already have it with you.

29Do not plot harm against your neighbor,

who lives trustfully near you.

30Do not accuse anyone for no reason—

when they have done you no harm.

31Do not envy the violent

or choose any of their ways.

32For the Lord detests the perverse

but takes the upright into his confidence.

33The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked,

but he blesses the home of the righteous.

34He mocks proud mockers

but shows favor to the humble and oppressed.

35The wise inherit honor,

but fools get only shame.

This is a repost from 2017 – the message talks about the era of transitioning.


Last Friday, March 17 I post many interesting facts that I’ve understood about a biblical transition between King David handing over his reign to his son Solomon.  I only posted the scripture without any input from my writing. The Word explanation is life and powerful all by its self.

As I often ask the Lord where are we and what is happening in our earth from heavens perspective?

Now according to the scriptures pertaining to Adonijah, what does the battle between elder brother Adonijah and the 2nd son Solomon is about?  It’s about the battle of 5 things:

1. Law and Grace

2. The enemy for the position of power.

3. The law living in the position of power.l

4.  The reign of the totality of grace – Solomon Temple and the extended presence of Christ in the body of Christ.

5. Faith through Love living.

The enemy of Grace coming into the lives of God church body, Adonijah, in his mischievous kind of why tried to under handedly attempted to steal the position during a transitioning time without the King David realizing it. Adonijah knew his father King David was sick in bed and wasn’t fully equipped to oversee the kingdom.  Because of the promise to David that his son Solomon will inherit the reign of his kingdom, someone from the field watching Adonijah’s error, who  understand protocol ran to the house of David and revealed the treacherous act.  At that moment the King David raised from his bed and placed the coat – King David had the original coat; placed the Kings robe on his son Solomon.

The story has many connotations to feed on for adequate accuracy of His Word for the 2017 current year. Solomon reign as King blessed the nation with the measurement of Solomon’s temple — which is the temple of you.

Be blessed as you read the story.


Here is the Friday scripture posting from Friday.

The Execution of Adonijah

1Kings 2:24-26

…24″Now therefore, as the LORD lives, who has established me and set me on the throne of David my father and who has made me a house as He promised, surely Adonijah shall be put to death today.”

25So King Solomon sent Benaiah the son of Jehoiada; and he fell upon him so that he died.

26Then to Abiathar the priest the king said, “Go to Anathoth to your own field, for you deserve to die; but I will not put you to death at this time, because you carried the ark of the Lord GOD before my father David, and because you were afflicted in everything with which my father was afflicted.”…

So King Solomon gave orders to Benaiah son of Jehoiada, and he struck down Adonijah and he died.

Psalm 25

Of David.

1In you, Lord my God,

I put my trust.

2I trust in you;

do not let me be put to shame,

nor let my enemies triumph over me.

3No one who hopes in you

will ever be put to shame,

but shame will come on those

who are treacherous without cause.

4Show me your ways, Lord,

teach me your paths.

5Guide me in your truth and teach me,

for you are God my Savior,

and my hope is in you all day long.

6Remember, Lord, your great mercy and love,

for they are from of old.

7Do not remember the sins of my youth

and my rebellious ways;

according to your love remember me,

for you, Lord, are good.

8Good and upright is the Lord;

therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.

9He guides the humble in what is right

and teaches them his way.

10All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful

toward those who keep the demands of his covenant.

11For the sake of your name, Lord,

forgive my iniquity, though it is great.

12Who, then, are those who fear the Lord?

He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.b

13They will spend their days in prosperity,

and their descendants will inherit the land.

14The Lord confides in those who fear him;

he makes his covenant known to them.

15My eyes are ever on the Lord,

for only he will release my feet from the snare.

16Turn to me and be gracious to me,

for I am lonely and afflicted.

17Relieve the troubles of my heart

and free me from my anguish.

18Look on my affliction and my distress

and take away all my sins.

19See how numerous are my enemies

and how fiercely they hate me!

20Guard my life and rescue me;

do not let me be put to shame,

for I take refuge in you.

21May integrity and uprightness protect me,

because my hope, Lord,c is in you.

22Deliver Israel, O God,

from all their troubles!

We never want to underestimate a kind word spoken even in passing to someone we encounter on our journey. Words indeed create worlds, as the late Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel asserted.

It was Jean Vanier who said “To be lonely is to feel unwanted and unloved, and therefore unloveable…”. The profound alienation and loneliness prevalent in the culture is masked by the many addictions present within the culture.

Lamps, Lamps Lamps and more Lamps. 

This is a picture of a person who has received understanding of the word of God.  Picture that for a moment.  I’m thinking about the praying lamps – the grandmothers, and or mothers who usually sit on the first two rows of any church.  Meditate on that but seeing beautiful lamps positioned perfectly trimmed with colored hats that represent lamp shades to tone down the light for the edifier – the pastor and or the teachers on Sunday’s.  (smiles)

After this write-up, I hope that you no longer see another seasoned believer the same; I pray that your spiritual eyes will see them as lamps, ready to embrace, for you see them;  some, the lamps are like the measures of a light bulb – 30 watt, 60 watt, 70 watt, 100 watt, 200 watt, and even 500 watt, but there is a light and some, the lights are shining brighter than bright.  At the same time, you can see lights that need to be changed, though the light bulb has burned out over time and need to be replaced or even upgraded for better brightness.  That would be the studying of the word of God.  

There is a scripture that will better embrace my point regarding “Lamps” shining everywhere.  The scripture is Psalms 119:105 says, 

Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.

You see, once I understood that the very scriptures I and you read daily are lamps, and when revelations is given by the Holy Spirit over and over and over and over again in my and your lifetime, it is light to your path. 

Can you know fact,  that nature light shines forever because of the word in which nature is created to be as created, that hears and sees, that is never darkened by the seasons….Nature brings enlightenment daily…. 

You see, this will eliminate those who enjoy putting your light out so that they can shine brighter than the person they’re assaulting or embarrassing or gossiping or shaming publicly and privately.  It actually puts their light out or it dims it over time for it to be changed for a newer light or brighter light bulb the educating a better understanding of His word. If that makes any sense? 

The word is also seed, which is Jesus and He can not be destroyed because the seed or the lamp has been revealed which is the path.

Now picture that concept in a seasoned believer which is not determined by age, race or any demographic measurements. It is determined by a thirsty and a hungry soul that is longing for a brighter way of life.

You future is bright, accept that, it has been confirmed and made true.

Have a wonderful week!

I have always said that when ever strange things that cannot be explain in the natural, it can be explain in the spirit by the revealed word of God.  And what is the Word:

So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. Romans 10:17

So this blog post will be talking about Absalom, the self appointed wanted to become king over Israel, King David son from the book of 2 Samuel 13:1-19:8.  I will not go into a long deep write-up but I will talk about some obvious manifestations of the character at hand.

Who was Absalom? Absalom was the older brother who killed his brother Ammon for having relations with his sister Tamar.  After Absalom killed his brother Ammon he then flees from the family of King David’s house.

Later Absalom returns to his fathers King David land.  Then somehow Absalom formed a friendship with King David counselor Ahithophel.  Absalom and Ahithophel plotted to kill King David and give the people and position to Absalom.  The position of King after the reign of David follows over to Solomon – the Father of Wisdom. 

2 Samuel 17:1-4

1 Ahithophel said to Absalom, “I would choose twelve thousand men and set out tonight in pursuit of David. 2 I would attack him while he is weary and weak. I would strike him with terror, and then all the people with him will flee. I would strike down only the king 3 and bring all the people back to you. The death of the man you seek will mean the return of all; all the people will be unharmed.” 4 This plan seemed good to Absalom and to all the elders of Israel.

Who was Ahithophel? Ahithophel was the counselor of King David and a man greatly renowned for his sagacity. At the time of Absalom revolt, he deserted David and espoused the counselor of Absalom.  Ahithophel and the consequences of an unforgiving spirit.

Both Absalom and Ahithophel is a renegade spirit that used pretense in order to fulfill its diabolical operations.  It is designed to undermine and destroy purpose, potential, and the influence and authority of men and women who hold strategic positions in the kingdom of God. Transferring loyalty from one person to another, its manipulation plan is to divide and conquer.

How do you defect this action? You submit completely to God, integrity, purpose, timing of the Lord, and being a heart of a servant by walking in humility, wisdom, peace, divine truth and most of all prayer.  Also, you believe what God has spoken to you.  David and Bathsheba, the kings wife was made a promise by the Lord your God that their son, Solomon would be the next king. (So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. Romans 10:17)

1 King 1:17-21

17 Then she said to him, “My lord, you swore by the Lord your God to your maidservant, saying, ‘Assuredly Solomon your son shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne.’ 18 So now, look! Adonijah has become king; and now, my lord the king, you do not know about it. 19 He has sacrificed oxen and fattened cattle and sheep in abundance, and has invited all the sons of the king, Abiathar the priest, and Joab the commander of the army; but Solomon your servant he has not invited. 20 And as for you, my lord, O king, the eyes of all Israel are on you, that you should tell them who will sit on the throne of my lord the king after him. 21 Otherwise it will happen, when my lord the king rests with his fathers, that I and my son Solomon will be counted as offenders.”

There are more details about the story, but I wanted to bring out the significate part of the story pertaining to trusting in what the Lord your God has said with His own tongue.

Here is our latest Bible Study on Sunday, May 27, 2018. In this bible study we talked about John 10.  We share how Jesus relates to us pertaining to our identity conflicts.  Take a watch.

 

Published May 18th, 2018 by

History repeats itself.  In biblical writings in Genesis 15:13-14 says,

Then the LORD said to him, “Know for certain that for four hundred years your descendants will be strangers in a country not their own and that they will be enslaved and mistreated there. But I will punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will come out with great possessions.

In American history slavery for blacks began and ended in 1618 – 1865.

Slavery ended around the world in:

1807 – Britain passes Abolition of the Slave Trade Act, outlawing British Atlantic slave trade. – United States passes legislation banning the slave trade, effective from start of 1808. 1811 – Spain abolishes slavery, including in its colonies, though Cuba rejects ban and continues to deal in slaves.

In the year 2018 from the year 1618 is 400 years.  We are in the 400th year in our global nation.  Could this mean anything concerning a people?

It does mean something in biblical writings in genesis 15:13-14.  God sends Moses to get His nation so they could worship Him.  The ordeal according to the bible got kind of messy but Gods word was fulfilled.  He mentioned to Abraham that His nation would be in slavery but then released from harsh bondage.  You can read the story of it in Exodus.

Now, although history repeats its self, there came later in the lineage of Gods nation a man name Jesus who would be The Christ, here after, the same lineage said to crucify Him. Thus now, we are in a new type of freedom – the liberty of the mind that we as a people now have is freedom in the grace of Christ Jesus.  The Lord is now savior of the Church which is His body.

You can read more about this freedom in Paul writings starting with the book of Galatians. In the book of Galatians will explain the law and living by grace and love.

Be blessed.
