.For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be comp
ared with the glory that shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. -Romans 8: 18, 23
Earthly trials seem as nothing in view of the hope of eternal glory. We have the blessed present help of the Spirit with us at all times. We look for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus. Titus 2: 13. We are protected by the power of God through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:5 "True, we must suffer with Christ, if we would partake of His glory, but nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness. 2 Peter 3:13
But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. -1 Peter 4:13
Therefore, I exhort the elders among you, as your fellow elder and witness of the sufferings of Christ, and a partaker also of the glory that is to be revealed. 1 Peter 5:1

Forgiven by God
| Forgiven |
And you, being dead in your sins and the un-circumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses. -Col. 2:13
Jesus will forgive us ALL our sins. In our daily life we must be careful not to let sin abide in our life so that we are in spiritual death. We do not want that to happen. Our life should be hidden in Christ. Nevertheless, God does forgive us all our sins, when we pray, but we are not to continue in sin. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needs. Eph. 4:32. When we pray for forgiveness it is then that we will be quickened or made alive with Christ. We will not be in spiritual death. All that had once separated us from God is gone and we are now seated with Christ Jesus in the very presence of God (Col. 3:1).
Isn't it wonderful that Jesus has already overcome sin for us and we just let Him live through us. Jesus has already conquered death and we have His resurrection power living in us. Jesus not only forgives all the sins in our past, but present and even future sins. Praise the Lord!

Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusts in thee. -Isaiah 26:3
Ones who trust in God are blessed with perfect peace. Blessed are they that put their trust in Him. Jesus can create "perfect peace" within our mind, though storms of trial rage. He will preserve our minds and establish peace for us. My heart trusts in Him.
The wicked ones can never feel such peace, as the Christian possesses. It is for the ones who trust in God.
Peace, peace to him who is far off and to him who is near. All may come to the Lord and receive spiritual healing. All our difficulties are within God's purpose.
Be anxious for nothing. Tell God your needs and let His peace keep your heart and mind. God's peace will guard us from all anxiety, doubt, fear and distress. His peace surpasses all understanding. "Behold, I extend peace to her like a river, And the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream; Isaiah 66:12

ALL GLORY TO GOD
| Glory in God|
Thus says the LORD; let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches. But let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord which exercise loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, says the Lord. --Jeremiah 9: 23-2
The Prophet forbids here any to glory except in God alone. Today God's Word should be heeded and obeyed. In this world of sin and sorrow, how foolish for one to glory in their knowledge, health, strength, riches, or in any thing which leaves them under the dominion of sin and the wrath of God! When we prize God above everything else that is wisdom. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endures forever. Some boast in chariots and some in horses, but we will boast in the name of the LORD, our God. But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. LET HIM WHO BOASTS, BOAST IN THE LORD."
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: Proverbs 1:7. We are to glory in God only. He gave His only begotten Son to shed his blood and cleanse us from our sins. When we live by God's teachings we will be able to stand before Him guiltless on that day when Christ shall appear. In God we have boasted all day long, and we will give thanks to your name forever
Psalm 44:8- 111: 10 - 20:7 -2 Corinthians 10:17 Galatians 6:14

Presence of the Lord
Let His Presence Melt You
The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth. -Psalm 97:5
The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the LORD. At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth melts. His dominion is universal, and his power is felt everywhere. Who else can move mountains, with a simple word or look? No one but my Lord can so such mighty things. In the Presence of Jehovah, there is great power. He made the mountains and the whole earth. His power can easily liquefy the highest mountain. Sometimes we doubt the presence of the Lord within He may be concealed with clouds. We know He lives within for his light shines in. His grace is sufficient for all our needs
Psalm 46:6 The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth melted.
Amos 9:5 The Lord GOD of hosts, The One who touches the land so that it melts, And all those who dwell in it mourn, And all of it rises up like the Nile And subsides like the Nile of Egypt;
Micah 1:4 The mountains will melt under Him And the valleys will be split, Like wax before the fire, Like water poured down a steep place.
Nahum 1:5 Mountains quake because of Him And the hills dissolve; Indeed the earth is upheaved by His presence, The world and all the inhabitants in it

When We Pray
| When We Pray Things Happen |
And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before. Job 42: 10
When he prayed, things changed. When he prayed, he was added wealth and blessings. The number of his children was the same as before. Seven more sons and three daughters were born to him after he had buried all his children. In the beginning his possessions were 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, 500 female donkeys, and very many servants; and Job was the greatest of all the men of the east. Still God had more in store for Job, because he was a man dedicated to prayer. God restored the captivity and had compassion on him and healed his body and gave him twice as much as he had before.
That is what happens when we pray regular and when we pray for our friends who do us harm. God turns things around for our good, therefore we are the winner. The blessing of the Lord makes rich and He gives us power to get wealth, and success. When we pray the LORD brings back the captivity of his people, and we rejoice. When we pray our path can be like the morning light shinning more and more unto the perfect day.

Call Him Up
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. -Jeremiah 33:3
Isn’t it great to have a friend whom we can call on day or night? We do not worry about getting through the busy lines that lead to Him for He is always available, day or night. The Lord told Jeremiah to call unto Him and promised to the captivity a gracious return--The Lord invited Jeremiah to continue to ask what His plans are for the future, and to learn the end results of options that leaders have from the Lord.
He said in His Word, Call and I will answer. He will not put you on hold, but will answer immediately. Call Him today. The lines are clear and He is waiting to hear from you. When you call He will show you mighty, inaccessible things, that is, incredible, to your understanding. He will show things that you do not know about.
When we are in need of comfort, we can call Him up and tell Him what we need.

Redeemed By The Blood
Precious Blood of Jesus
Ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold…but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” 1 Peter 1:18-19
Peace with God through the forgiveness of all your sins may be obtained at any moment. We do not have to repent or work for it. Just simply believe what God says regarding Christ “having made peace by the blood of His cross,” Col 1:20.
“And being justified freely by His grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,” Romans 3:24 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life,” John 3:16.
He brings peace that passes all understanding” which will spring up spontaneously within your soul, like the fresh, flowing current of a fountain. Phil 4:7)
The blood of Christ, Thy spotless Lamb, O God, is all my plea; Naught else could for my sin atone; I have no merit of my own, Which I can bring to Thee.

| You May Freely Eat |
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. - Genesis 1:29
It seems now that many are afraid to eat certain foods. They have been tampered with and cause us to be left, -- not feeling so well. We do not understand many of the things that are happening, but Jesus told us to Trust in the Lord with all our heart; and lean not unto our own understanding. Proverbs 3:5 Some day on Heaven's bright shore, we will worry no more about such things, because God will be our provider and there will be no harm.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. Revelation 22:2
The river of Thy grace is flowing free, We launch upon its depths to sail to Thee;
In the ocean of Thy love we soon shall be, We are sailing to eternity.

Through Loving Eyes
Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? -1 Peter 3: 9-13
We are called to inherit and bestow blessings. How great is that? Let the railing take second place. They cannot hurt us. We are told to bless them who persecute us. Then we act as children of the Most High. We are to seek to live peaceably with everyone if we desire to have a loving life, with good days. That is something we all want. Who doesn’t desire that? Christians have a long and happy life, begun in this world and continued forever in the next. God has good things for us to enjoy with prosperity and happiness. Psalms 34:12
The eyes of the Lord are over the righteous and that is good. He looks at us through eyes of love. Let us seek to live peaceably with everyone. Even in the midst of troubles and trials. When it seems there can never be peace, let us seek for it. When we follow after that which is good how can anyone harm us? Who is he that will harm you — No one can.
...Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. -Acts 2:21

The fashion of this world passes away. - I Corinthians 7:31
Fashions Come and go, but things of God last always. Those things, which God gives us here, on earth IS ONLY TEMPORARY. Nothing in this world continues forever, but things God give last forever. LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. Psalm. 39:
We are told by God to not seek happiness in the world, but in God. The pleasures of this world will fade away. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away. The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever. LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. 1 Corinthians 7: 29,31 1 Corinthians 9:18 1 John 2:17 James 4:14 Psalm. 39:4

Immeasurable Grace and Love
And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace. -John 1:16
We have received the fullness of Jesus. Now the one in sin has not accepted His marvelous grace. They do not know the full life of having Jesus as Lord. But oh what fullness we, the Christians have! What joy to know the love of Christ, which surpasses knowledge that we may be filled up to all the fullness of God? In Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form and we are complete in Jesus. For it was the Father's good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him.
Until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature, which belongs to the fullness of Christ, one Lord, one faith, one baptism. To a state of spiritual understanding and strength. Till it measures full. Then we are spiritual mature and filled with Christ. He will then be all in all.
-Col. 2:9, 10 Ephesians 3:19 Ephesians 4:5, 13
Let us daily renew our minds to what we have already received through Christ. We daily receive one blessing upon another, immeasurable fountain of all goodness, grace and love.

Put on Robes of Righteousness
And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man, which had not on a wedding garment: -Matthew 22:11
All were invited to the banquet; The King was supplying the wedding garments in the story of the wedding. In comes one without proper attire. Purposely he rejected the king’s gracious provision. He insulted the king more that those who refused to come. He had showed impertinence in the very presence of the king. There are those who identify with God’s kingdom externally by professing to be Christians today. They belong to a church, but yet they do not put on a garment of righteousness, as Christ so graciously offers. They seek to establish their own works of righteousness. They are in spiritual poverty because they refuse to put on better garments that Christ offers. They are guilty of horrible sin against Christ's goodness. Be careful for one wants to be cast out into outer darkness as this one was.
For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. -Romans 10: 3
Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the Excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: -Phil. 3: 8,9
If so be that beinG clothed we shall not be found naked. -2 Cor. 5:3
And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. - Eph. 4: 24
And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; -Col. 3: 10 & 12
Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. -Rev. 3:4
Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watches, and keepS his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. -Rev. 16:15
And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. - Rev. 19:8
Fri, Jul 18th - 12:45PM
Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground; But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark. And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark; And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth. And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more. -Genesis 8:8-12
Sometimes in life we are like Noah's dove. We tend to grow weary and almost fall and drop into destroying waters. Our dove of Christian joy can go upward and find rest when it flies on the wings of love. There we will find a place to rest in His loving nest.
Noah's dove did not find rest, so he put out his tender grip and the dove found a refuge. The second time the dove could find no place to set its feet when Noah sent it out. So it returned with an olive leaf, but could find no place to land. The third time the dove did not return, and Noah knew it was safe to come out of the ark.
We can find rest for our soul when God reaches down with His spirit of love. We can mount upward and fly on wings of love. We should always cherish the Holy Spirit. The gentle dove will not remain in an atmosphere of strife where the Spirit is quenched.
GOD SENDS DOWN HIS LOVE
Wed, Jul 16th - 3:13PM
The Love Of Money
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. -1 Timothy 6:10
There can be much distress and uneasiness over money. It is not the money itself, which if used right and for God is a blessing, but the love of it. For the love of money is the root of all evil. For love of money Judas sold his Master. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires, which plunge men into ruin and destruction. -1 Timothy 6:9
Greedy love is the source of every sin. People will murder, cheat, lie, rob, and just about anything, all for the love of money. Some... have wandered from faith through the love of money, as Judas did. For love of money Judas sold his Master.
Love of money is a leading "root of bitterness" for it can destroy faith, the root of all that is good. Those that stray from the faith pierce themselves with many sorrows; those that depart from God do but treasure up sorrows for them.
...Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. -Acts 2:21

Things Money Cannot Buy
And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands; he may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. -Acts 8: 18-20
They may take away our riches, but they can never take God out of my heart. Ho, every one that thirsts, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. -Isaiah 55:1 Elisha demonstrated the principle of the spiritual value of earthly things when he refused to accept gifts and make merchandise of the ministry. -2 Kings 5:16 God's ministry is much more than earthly matters. Jesus told his disciples, "Freely you have receive freely give. Matthew
Daniel was one of God's servants who refused to take gifts. He said to the king as he stood to interpret the writing on the wall. "Let thy gifts be to thyself, and give thy rewards to another, yet I will read the writing unto the king."
It would be good to follow Peter's advise in Acts 2: 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. This is one of the gifts that money cannot buy. Our money may perish, but God's gift of love will never be taken from us. He will give to anyone who thirsts of the fountain of the water of life. This is eternal sustenance and provision. It is freely available by faith in God. Whosoever will let Him take of the water of life Rev. 21: 6, 22:7

OUR GREAT GOD
Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out. Job 36:26
Yes our God is so great we cannot even began to understand His ways. We cannot attain the perfect knowledge of God. Our sins cause the Lord to hide his face, and hinder the light of his loving-kindness from shining on our souls. Someday we will know more, but now, - - we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 1 Cor. 13:12
Our days on earth are temporary and we often see people change and we never know when or how they will be ... but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. Hebrews 1:12 We can never discover the depths or limits of the Almighty God. He is eternal, as in his being, so in all his counsels.
The Almighty-- we cannot find Him; He is exalted in power And He will not do violence to justice and abundant righteousness.
Before the mountains were born Or You gave birth to the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God. Psalm 90:2
I say, "O my God, do not take me away in the midst of my days, Your years are throughout all generations. Psalm 102:24
"But You are the same, And Your years will not come to an end. Psalm 102:27
THERE IS NO ONE ELSE LIKE HIM! PRAISE THE LORD!

Some Golden Day
Some day Jesus will come to take us home. Over on Heaven's bright shore, there will be no more crying, no signing, for the former things of this earth will have all passed away. I believe He is coming back soon to take His children home to be with Him forever more. What a glorious day that will be, when our Savior we will see. Why should we worry about things in this life that we cannot control. We only can take them to God in prayer and let Him do all things to His glory. Life's troubles will soon all be ore, and we will suffer no more. -Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.-Luke 12:27
The Lord knows that we have need of things in this life to survive, but we should not be carried away with riches of the world. And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knows that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom
The Good News is a message about Jesus Christ and h ow He is coming back to earth soon. It is promised in the Bible, long ago by God's prophets in the Old Testament. It's about His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who came as a human baby, born into King David's royal family line."After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. 'The time has come, he said. 'The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!'"
Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the Holy Scriptures,) Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; - Romans 1: 2-3

HEARTS OF WISDOM
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. -Psalm 90:12
When our hearts are filled with wisdom, we will be guarded from evil. Wisdom focuses on God and His sovereignty. Our days on earth are short compared to eternity. We are wise when we apply our heart to wisdom and evaluate our use of time. Our days will be filled with God's sweetness and we will be fully satisfied. We do not go wrong when we pray for Divine instruction. The Holy Spirit will teach and comfort us. He gives us a fountain of joy. May we be heartily devoted to true wisdom
LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is: that I may know how frail I am. -Psalm 39:4
So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Proverbs 2:2
O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! -Deut. 32: 29
"LORD, make me to know my end And what is the extent of my days; Let me know how transient I am. -Psalm 39:4

... Must I not take heed to speak that which the LORD hath put in my mouth? - Numbers 23:12
We should be willing to speak the Word of the Lord. We can only speak forth the Word as it is given. God's Word is true and there is life in the Word. It brings everlasting deliverance and hope. Let us proclaim His sweet Word every opportunity available. It is our duty to take heed and speak what the Lord gives us.He is the one who raises us up when we fall and gives us strength. Let His tender touch soothe and awaken our spirit or we will perish. Let His words go forth all over the earth. Let us ever be faithful to speak what the Lord puts in our heart.
..Balaam replied to Balak, "Did I not tell you, `Whatever the LORD speaks, that I must do'?" -Numbers 20,26;
So Balaam said to Balak, "Behold, I have come now to you! Am I able to speak anything at all? The word that God puts in my mouth, that I shall speak." - Numbers 22:38; Though Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not do anything contrary to the command of the LORD, either good or bad, of my own accord. What the LORD speaks, that I will speak'? -Numbers 24:13;
When he speaks graciously, do not believe him, For there are seven abominations in his heart. Proverbs 26:25;
For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting. Romans 16:18;They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed. Titus 1:16

The Ungodly Finds No Happiness
The wicked are not so,
but are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
For God knows the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked shall perish.
-Psalm 1: 4-6
He is constantly looking on their way. It may be often in the mist of darkness, yet the Lord knows it. If it be in the clouds and tempest of affliction, he understands it. He numbers the hairs of our head; he will not suffer any evil to befall us. "He knows the way that I take: when He has tried me, I shall come forth as gold." (Job 23:10.) "But the way of the ungodly shall perish." All the sinful ways must come to an end. May the Lord cleanse our heart, that we may escape the doom of the ungodly, and enjoy the blessedness of the righteous!

Happiness Of The Godly
Blessed is the man who doesn’t walk in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stand in the way of sinners,
nor sit in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in God’s law.
On his law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree planted by the streams of water,
that brings forth its fruit in its season,
whose leaf also does not wither.
Whatever he does shall prosper.
Psalm 1: 1-3
The godly man finds continuous pleasure in reflecting on God's Word. It becomes a habit done regularly and is a delight and not tedious. When you find yourself in a restless time of life, or when sleep does not come, try meditating on God's Word. There is no better way to fill the long hours.

God's Love Has Chosen Us
He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the LORD. -Psalm 147:20
The church, like Jerusalem of old, built up and preserved by the wisdom, power, and goodness of God, is exhorted to praise him for all the benefits and blessings. We have the blessed Word of God to resolve all our doubts, and to point out the way of life to us. "Lord, how is it thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?" God has in-trusted us with his truth. Hallelujah.
"For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as is the LORD our God whenever we call on Him? "Or what great nation is there that has statutes and judgments as righteous as this whole law which I am setting before you today? -Deuteronomy 4:7,
Pour out Your wrath on the nations that do not know You And on the families that do not call Your name; Jeremiah 10:25

Keeping God's Word We're Blessed
Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart. "Psalms 119:2,
Those who seek the Lord with their whole heart are called, "blessed".
God’s Word says, "He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters." We should serve God with all our heart. "And you, my son, Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve Him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever." -I Chronicles 28:9
God's word is his witness or testimony to important truths, which concern himself, and our relation to him: We should desire to know and believe it. Loving and abiding by God's Word, one will be blessed

Freedom In Christ
There is therefore now no condemnation to them that is in Christ Jesus. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus freed me from, the law of sin and of death .For, (the thing the Law could not do, because it was powerless on account of the flesh) God, having sent His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4 that the righteous result of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to flesh, but according to Spirit. –Romans 8: 1-4
Thank God for America and our freedom, but Christians also have freedom in Christ. There is "no condemnation" for him (Rom. 8:1). All our sins have been take care of at the cross. We are in the hands of the blessed Comforter, and the indwelling Spirit, gives us “life and peace.”
We are without cause in him, and involved in a great Divine purpose that will end in his being conformed to Christ’s image. Christ being “the First-born among many brethren.” Nothing can separate us from the love of God
We are "in Christ Jesus," the One who is OUR LIFE.
We are so identified with the risen and glorified Christ that as He is so are we.
This is freedom in Christ and we look forward to the blessed hope! Christ also, having been once offered to bear the sins of many, shall appear a second time, apart from sin, to them that wait for him, unto salvation. - Heb.9: 28.
...Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. -Acts 2:21

God's Divine Love
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. -I John 2:1, 2
The heights of love are shown, not only in sending the Son, but sending him to be the propitiation for our sins; He loved us, when we had no love for him, when we lay in our guilt, misery. He loved us when we were undeserving, ill-deserving, polluted, and unclean, and wanted to be washed from our sins. Such wondrous love has never been known. He longs to have communion with us.
Toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubims be. And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat. -Exo. 5:20-22
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. -Romans 5:8
For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. -Romans 5:10
1 John 2:2 and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.
By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.-1 John 4:9
We love, because He first loved us. -1 John 4:19
Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him; mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. -Psa. 85:9, 10
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. -John 3:16 "
I am eternally thankful for the Divine Love of Jesus.
