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

Call Him

I love the Lord, because He hears My voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.
Psalms 116:1‭-‬2 NASB

I love the Lord.  .  . Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.

God is listening. He has inclined His ear. He wants to hear from you. He wants to hear your supplications (humble prayer, earnest request of one in authority).

He, God, who has authority over all creation, all things. Take your hurts, your struggles, your pain, your anguish, your fears, your uncertainties, your lack of faith, your questions, everything to Him. He is life. He is the way. He is the truth. God will not steer you wrong.

🌹God is the wisdom you need. Call upon Him today. He is waiting.

My Salvation

Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For the Lord God is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.”

Therefore you will joyously draw water      From the springs of salvation.

An ever flowing spring of salvation pouring out in thankfulness to God for His wonderful gift. A gift that can not be contained.

And in that day you will say, “Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name. Make known His deeds among the peoples; Make them remember that His name is exalted.”

The name above ALL names! The name of Jesus, through whom salvation comes, that can’t be kept quiet. Every knee shall bow, every tongue confess.

Praise the Lord in song, for He has done excellent things; Let this be known throughout the earth.

Cry aloud and shout for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, For great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.
Isaiah 12:2‭-‬6 NASB

🌹Only fear the Lord and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you.
1 Samuel 12:24 NASB

To God be the glory for the things He had done.

Wise and Discerning

O Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols? It is I who answer and look after you. I am like a luxuriant cypress; From Me comes your fruit. Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; Whoever is discerning, let him know them. For the ways of the Lord are right, And the righteous will walk in them, But transgressors will stumble in them.
Hosea 14:8‭-‬9 NASB

🌹🙏 The works of Your hands are truth and justice; All Your precepts are sure. They are upheld forever and ever; They are performed in truth and uprightness.
The way of the righteous is smooth; O Upright One, make the path of the righteous level.
Psalms 111:7‭-‬8 NASB/Isaiah 26:7 NASB

In Jesus name and for His glory amen.

Satisfy us in the morning with Your graciousness, That we may sing for joy and rejoice all our days.

God’s Faithfulness And Salvation

“I have proclaimed glad tidings of righteousness in the great congregation; Behold, I will not restrain my lips, O Lord, You know. I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have spoken of Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great congregation.”
Psalms 40:9‭-‬10 NASB

“not hidden Your righteousness”:
David spoke of God’s righteousness. He did not hide it in his heart, he proclaimed it. Paul proclaimed also speaking to the elders in Ephesus.
“how I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you publicly and from house to house,”
“For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose of God.”
Acts 20:20‭, ‬27 NASB

“I have spoken of Your faithfulness and salvation”

“I will sing of the lovingkindness of the Lord forever; To all generations I will make known Your faithfulness with my mouth.”
Psalms 89:1 NASB

🌹 Are you proclaiming the righteousness and faithfulness of God to the church and all generations? Is His salvation that has been given to you, motivate you to tell others?

We are able by the power of God within us.

“You, O Lord, will not withhold Your compassion from me; Your lovingkindness and Your truth will continually preserve me.”
Psalms 40:11 NASB

Steadfast Faith

So have I become your enemy by telling you the truth?
Galatians 4:16 NASB

They hate him who reproves in the gate, And they abhor him who speaks with integrity.
Amos 5:10 NASB

Speaking truth in a world bent on lies and deceit is a difficult task but walking in truth and in the steadfast faithfulness of God we will overcome.

If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.
John 15:19 NASB

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
1 John 5:4 NASB

Hate evil, love good, And establish justice in the gate! Perhaps the Lord God of hosts May be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.
Amos 5:15 NASB

🌹May your steadfast faith keep you speaking boldly the truth of Christ to a dying world. Living in the Truth, you can be used to change the world.

God grant us, Your remnant, grace to overcome. Amen.

The Church – Keeping the Unity

but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.     Ephesians 4:15‭-‬16 NASB

Jesus must be made the head of the body, the Church, for unity to be accomplished. He places each part (person) of the body in the church and He “causes the growth for the building up of itself in love”. We individually must surrender to the Lordship of Christ and be obedient to His commands (the Word of God, Bible).

Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor, for we are members of one another. Ephesians 4:25 NASB

Neighbor: members of the church and accountable for and to one another.

be angry, and yet do not sin ; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity. Ephesians 4:26‭-‬27 NASB

Remember that the devil is seeking whom he may devour and if he can destroy a church he will. Let us not give him the opportunity.

Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29‭ NASB

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Ephesians 4:31 NASB

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.  Ephesians 4:32 NASB

Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Ephesians 4:30 NASB

from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.    Ephesians 3:15‭-‬19 NASB

🌹O the blessings, the “riches of His glory”, “strengthened with power through His Holy Spirit”, the dwelling of Christ in the heart! By this and our obedience we comprehend with all the saints the abounding, overflowing, tremendous love of God and are filled to the fullness of God.

The Church – Christian

if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth. Ephesians 4:21‭-‬24 NASB

Lord, as a Christian, one called by You unto salvation and a new life; help me daily to lay aside my old self which is corrupted with sin and be renewed in the spirit of my mind, putting on the new self, Your likeness which is Your righteousness, holiness and truth.

In Jesus name, amen.

If you have heard Him and been taught in Him:

In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation-having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, Ephesians 1:13 NASB

Rid yourself of the old self:

But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth.        Colossians 3:8 NASB. (See also: James 1:21, 1 Peter 2:1)

knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin;   Romans 6:6 NASB

Put on the new self:

But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts. Romans 13:14 NASB

Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.   Romans 6:4 NASB

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.2 Corinthians 5:17 NASB

and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him-Colossians 3:10 NASB

🌹Have you “indeed” “heard Him” and “been taught in Him”?
