The Day of the Lord

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

Ok, that sounds a little bleak. But the chapter doesn't end there.

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

YES! As Christians, those hidden in Christ, we have hope. Heaven is our home. Let us live as ambassadors to the heavenly kingdom. 
Welcoming, encouraging, compelling those who are lost to come in while there is still time.

For the Day of the Lord will come.
Be Ready

17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Matthew 5

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

As Christians, followers of Jesus Christ,
we are to stand out.
Be examples, testimonies, to the Living God.

Now as to good works - what is that?

John 10:32
Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

What good works did Jesus do?

We had the bracelets of WWJD- What would Jesus do?
but first we need to see WDJD - What did Jesus do?

  • God so loved the world - compassion - Jesus had compassion and acted on it
  • Jesus destroyed the works of the devil - 1 John 3:8
  • Jesus did only what He saw and heard from the Father in heaven. John 5:19
  • Good works are not only good deeds. Beware of the social gospel. It is good to help the poor, feed the hungry, and shelter the homeless. But the world does this too. We need to operate in the power of the Holy Spirit where we can hand out bread for the stomach and the Bread of Life for the soul. If we do as the Lord speaks in our hearts, then will we shine.
Pray and ask what the Lord of the Harvest would have you do. Be ready in season and out to be quick to obey the word of the Lord. Learn His Word and act on it 

Then we will shine.

What Road are You On?

The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: 
he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.

I read a post on Twitter how all roads eventually lead to the same place.
What a lie.

Matthew 7:14
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, 
which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Beware of those who try to mislead you.
There is but one way to the Father

Walk the straight and narrow path
not alone but hand in hand with 
the Lord Jesus.

Be wise
Be ready
and walk with the Lord.

Grace In Your Heart

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 

How quickly the word of Christ can fall from our hearts and we slip away.
God is always near if we are of a mind to turn, repent, and listen.
Beware of the busy pace and frantic noise of the world
for it lulls us away and asleep in the things of God.

What to do?
Sing, sing the words of songs that catch your heart.
And what better time than Christmas to recapture 
that 'loving' feeling.

Whose heart hasn't sparked after singing or hearing 
Hark the Herald Angel
Away in a Manger
Joy to the World
Silent Night

Read the words, let them sink down deep and ignite 
the dying embers of your heart.
And grasp the grace of God and 
rejoice as  your heart comes alive.

For a time such as this
You were born.

Sing, Rejoice
and be a witness to 
the Light of the World.

Philippians 3 
20 For our citizenship is in heaven,...  (NKJV)

The elections are over.
What will happen as a result is not.

But as Christians,
How are we to react?

For me,
the elections were a cutting
I care about the country I was born in
But I experienced 
a recognition that heaven is my home.

Our future is secure
in a place that
will not burn, or be destroyed
We are secure

Now in this time of insecurity on earth
Let's stand and point the Way
to Jesus

And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:

I heard a teaching the word
means 'save us from ourselves'

How true that is
If we were capable of 
being perfect
We wouldn't have needed
a savior.

We aren't capable of being

Only through Jesus are
we righteous
and that not of ourselves
but His righteousness that He
accounts to those who believe
He is the Son of God.

Hosanna and again I say Hosanna
I am needy and poor in my own righteousness
I need my Savior
I need Jesus 
His righteousness

Psalm 91:1

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most 
High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

so our nation has chosen
whether it chose wisely or not
That is another question.

That judgment is coming 
I believe is almost a surety

Our nation has thumbed its nose
at God
Promoted the slaughter of the unborn
sexual immorality
mocking God

My opinion - and only an opinion
seek the Lord,
Dwell in the secret place
Abide in His grace

Be Wise
cover your mind and words in

And Watch and Pray

Fear Not the Day!

Proverbs 21:1

21 The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord,
 as the rivers of water: 
he turneth it whithersoever he will.

No matter today's election outcome,
the Lord's hand is mighty 
to save his

WWJD and other hard things.

John 14:15
If ye love me, keep my commandments.

We have the WWJD bracelets.
The church says we need to do what Jesus would do.

But do we?
The Hard things?

Words are easy to say, 
The doing a bit harder.

Because it is usually death to self.
And the flesh doesn't die easily.

Challenge - go thru the New Testament 
and write down what Jesus says to do.
And then do them.

It doesn't take long to see that on our own
It is not going to happen.

Only thru faith and His strength
can we do what is required.

When we are weak
He is strong.

How to Pray

When monster storms have washed over you
and you are at a loss of how to pray

Jesus said:
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Wait upon the Lord

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Ever had one of those tired days?

Then stop, wait, and listen for the Lord.
He is our strength
He is our promise
He is coming!

Upon the
