Sweet Aroma

But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.
2 Corinthians 2:14‭ NASB

🌹God of the gospel, thanks be to You, God, for Your indescribable gift! The gift of Your Holy Spirit living and working through me, leading always in triumph in Christ! Overwhelming abundant thanks be to You, God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. The victory over eternal death!! God, I pray that my confidence be found in the testimony of my conscience, that in holiness and godly sincerity, not in fleshly wisdom but in the grace of God, I will conduct myself in the world so that my faith will be proclaimed throughout the whole world. God, You said, “Light shall shine out of darkness.” It is You who have shone in my heart to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. I pray that I will abound in faith and utterance and knowledge and in all earnestness and in love inspire others as I seek to abound in this gracious work. Manifest in me Lord God the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Christ everywhere I go. To Your glory and purpose. Your will be done. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.

Practice these things and you will not stumble“: 2 Peter 1:10

and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness,
2 Peter 1:6

Knowlege of Jesus Christ. Knowing that He is the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father but through Jesus, the Son. Knowing that the Holy Spirit abides in us, the believer. Did you know that self-control is a fruit of the Spirit? By the power of the living God dwelling in us we have self-control to persevere in our sanctification. Let us persevere in disciplining ourselves for the purpose of godliness which is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. Be in the word regularly and let us practice living what we learn.
Galatians 5:23/1 Timothy 4:7-8 NASB

And let us not forget:

🌹seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.

Practice these things and you will not stumble“: 2 Peter 1:10

Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence (virtue), and in your moral excellence (virtue), knowledge,
2 Peter 1:5‭ NASB

Applying all diligence! The New Testament for Everyone says, “you should strain every nerve”. Our faith is fragile. Faith isn’t a one time decision, it is a constant that needs nourished. Nourished with truths that distinguish right and wrong so we can express and convey right conduct, walk in righteousness. Jesus is our righteousness and His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. Christ Himself, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
2 Peter 1:3/Colossians 2:3 NASB

Apply the Word of God. God’s word is the moral compass of moral virtue. In the Word of God is the knowledge of the righteousness of Christ. I believe that God’s word has the power to transform our moral compass and fill us with the knowledge of Jesus Christ. To know Him is to love Him.

🌹Are you diligently reading God’s word on a daily basis?

Philippians 3:15-16

Let us therefore, as many as are perfect (mature), have this attitude; and if in anything you have a different attitude, God will reveal that also to you; however, let us keep living (following  in line) by that same standard to which we have attained.
Philippians 3:15‭-‬16 NASB

Perfect, Holy God I confess that my attitude has not always been to press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Father, reveal to me any attitude that is different from Your upward calling. I want to be mature so I can be perfect as You are perfect. May my life follow in line with Your standard, Lord. I thank You, God, for the blessing and privilege of speaking wisdom among others that are also mature; a wisdom not of this world, for we are not of this world, nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away.
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. Fill me Father with Your Spirit; teach me wisdom Holy Spirit so spiritual thoughts will bring about spiritual words of honor, glory and praise to Your perfect, holy name. Amen.
Philippians 3:14/Matthew 5:48/1 Corinthians 2:6/1 Corinthians 2:12‭-‬13 NASB

Philippians 3:8

More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ,
Philippians 3:8 NASB

With all praise and glory I lift up my hands to You Jesus, my Redeemer, Savior, Lord. Thank You for the privilege to know You; for Your word is where I reap the essence of who You are and grow in knowledge and wisdom of my glorious God who loves me.
Lord, as You said, “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches;” I pray if I boast of anything, that I boast that I understand and know You, that You are the Lord who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for You delight in these things.”
God grant me Your grace and may peace be multiplied to me in the knowledge of You, Father, and of Jesus my Lord; seeing that Your divine power has granted to me everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of You who called me by Your own glory and excellence. God I long to know You deeply and sincerely. In all wisdom and insight You made known to me the mystery of Your will, according to Your kind intention which You, Father, purposed in Jesus who is given as a pledge of my inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.
God of our Lord Jesus Christ, Father of glory,  give to me a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Jesus. I pray that the eyes of my heart may be enlightened, so that I will know what is the hope of Your calling, what are the riches of the glory of Your inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of Your power toward me who believes. These requests I pray in the name and to the glory of Jesus Christ, amen.

Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things again is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you.

Even in the sacrifice and service of my faith I rejoice. Safeguard Your people Lord and may we never get tired of hearing Your repeated word.

Philippians 1:9-11

And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve (discover or distinguish between the things that differ) the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until (for) the day of Christ; having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
Philippians 1:9‭-‬11 NASB

🌹Lord may You cause us to increase and abound in love for one another, and for all people. God fill us with the knowledge of Your will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding and may we never cease to pray this for our fellow brothers and sisters. For we know that the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And the work of righteousness will be peace, And the service of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever. God, You will confirm us to the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Your righteousness I shall find my confidence and I shall rejoice. Amen.

Since that time no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face,
Deuteronomy 34:10 NASB

Thus the Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, just as a man speaks to his friend.
Exodus 33:11a NASB

It came about when Moses was coming down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses’ hand as he was coming down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because of his speaking with Him.

So when Aaron and all the sons of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him. the sons of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone. So Moses would replace the veil over his face until he went in to speak with Him.
Exodus 34:29‭-‬30‭, ‬35 NASB

For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:6 NASB

Does your light shine in the darkness?
Does Jesus shine in your heart from having  spent time with Him? Does your heart give the Light of knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus so others see?

🌹Time spent in prayer and reading the Bible, God’s Holy Word, is never wasted.

God, shine Your Light in and through me that others may see Your glory and come to the knowledge of You. Amen.

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
