The Lord Is . . .

The Lord is righteous in all His ways And kind in all His deeds.
The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth.
He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and will save them.
The Lord keeps all who love Him, But all the wicked He will destroy.
My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, And all flesh will bless His holy name forever and ever.
Psalms 145:17‭-‬21 NASB

🌹God bless your day.

Are You Ready?

Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, tread, for the wine press is full; The vats overflow, for their wickedness is great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
Joel 3:13‭-‬14 NASB

Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of man, having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand. And another angel came out of the temple, crying out with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Put in your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come, because the harvest of the earth is ripe.” Then He who sat on the cloud swung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was reaped.
Revelation 14:14‭-‬16 NASB

And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. Then another angel, the one who has power over fire, came out from the altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “Put in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, because her grapes are ripe.” So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God.
Revelation 14:17‭-‬19 NASB

Blow a trumpet in Zion, And sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, For the day of the Lord is coming; Surely it is near,
Joel 2:1 NASB

Are you ready? The valley of decision is now. The harvest is coming.

🌹Worship the Lord in holy attire; Tremble before Him, all the earth.

We Are One

“It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy (to speak as a mediator between God and humankind or in God’s stead.), Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions. Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
Joel 2:28‭-‬29 NASB

The Old Testament tells of the coming indwelling Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit that speaks through us as the mediator between God and humankind. The Holy Spirit that does not segregate – male, female, even a lowly servant can have the Holy Spirit living in them.

The Spirit of grace who intercedes on our behalf and helps us to understand what we did to Jesus.

“I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.
Zechariah 12:10 NASB

We sent Jesus to death by our sin. When we understand, by the power of the Holy Spirit, that we, at one point in our lives, were  screaming, “Crucify Him”, we then can surrender to the will of God in our lives and let the Holy Spirit live in us. With the indwelling of the Holy Spirit we all will prophesy.

For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Galatians 3:27‭-‬28 NASB

🌹Clothed in Jesus’ righteousness, prophesying under the power of the Holy Spirit, for the Father’s glory! We are one in God.

Moving Forward or Backward?

For as the waistband clings to the waist of a man, so I made the whole household of Israel and the whole household of Judah cling to Me,’ declares the Lord, ‘that they might be for Me a people, for renown, for praise and for glory; . . .
Jeremiah 13:11 NASB

The people whom I formed for Myself Will declare My praise.
Isaiah 43:21 NASB

but they did not listen.’
Jeremiah 13:11 NASB continued

Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in their own counsels and in the stubbornness of their evil heart, and went backward and not forward.
Jeremiah 7:24 NASB

🌹Are you moving forward in the Lord? Surrender your life to God. Listen, obey, and praise His glory. For this you were created.

Is God Dwelling Today?

My dwelling place also will be with them; and I will be their God, and they will be My people. And the nations will know that I am the Lord who sanctifies Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forever.” ’ ”
Ezekiel 37:27‭-‬28 NASB

The Old Testament speaks of the dwelling of God amongst His people. His dwelling with them would be known among all the nations.

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 NASB

The New Testament speaks of God who came in the flesh, Jesus Christ, and dwelt amongst us. His glory was seen.

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
John 14:26 NASB

Today, God is seen in the believer by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. All nations will know that God is Lord by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in His people.

🌹Do others see Jesus in you?

His Name’s Sake

Dear Holy, Sovereign God,

For the sake of Your name, O Lord, revive me. In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble.

You Will Know

“My holy name I will make known in the midst of My people Israel; and I will not let My holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations will know that I am the Lord, the Holy One in Israel.
Ezekiel 39:7 NASB

God will make Himself known. Look around. As the world spirals downward farther into darkness, the Lord God is profaned more and more, even forgotten.
Even as patient as God is there comes a time when all mankind will know that God is Lord.
Will the time be now for you? Will you walk with Him, obey Him, serve Him this side of eternity? Will you seek to know Him and desire to know the Holy One or wait until He reveals Himself fully when it will be too late.

And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’
Matthew 7:23 NASB

For it is written, “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall give praise to God.”
Romans 14:11 NASB

Why not now?

🌹”I will magnify Myself, sanctify Myself, and make Myself known in the sight of many nations; and they will know that I am the Lord.” 
Ezekiel 38:23 NASB

As I Live Says God

Say to them, ‘As I live!’ declares the Lord God, ‘I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways! Why then will you die, O house of Israel?’
Ezekiel 33:11 NASB

The living God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. The compassionate God desires the best for you. What level of desire do you have for others around you to avoid death and know the best life?

🌹Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
John 14:6 NASB
In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.
John 1:4 NASB

The Living God

How lovely are Your dwelling places, O Lord of hosts! My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the Lord; My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.
Psalms 84:1‭-‬2 NASB

🌹 For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand outside. I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, How blessed is the man who trusts in You!
Psalms 84:10‭-‬12 NASB

Present Every Person Complete in Christ

For Ezra had set his heart to study the law of the Lord and to practice it, and to teach His statutes and ordinances in Israel.
Ezra 7:10 NASB

Is your heart set on knowing, studying God’s word? Knowing it and walking by God’s word? Practicing leads to telling others about God’s awesome plan. God’s plan is for you to walk closely with Him in an intimate, loving relationship.

If you are not reading daily and putting it into practice, how about starting today. Besides changing your life you could change someone else’s life.

🌹We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ.
Colossians 1:28 NASB
