[11/01/20]   Prayer For Sunday & Monday.
The Proof Is In The (SOUND), Heart
🗣🙏✝️Heavenly Father, the only Wise Savior, who gives Commandments to His Children. For the days are challenging and troubles are throughout the land. We can’t depend on the tv, the internet or this world for assurance. Let the joy of heaven touch each of us down to the very core of our hearts and soul. My prayer today is...help all to speak to one another with psalm, hymns and songs from the Holy Spirit. Singing and making music from the heart To the Lord (Ephesians 5:19). Help us to once again make that joyful sound of Worship and Praise that only the RIGHTEOUS CAN MAKE (Psalm 100). In Jesus Mighty Name. Amen

[10/29/20]   Set Apart For Yahweh!
🗣🙏✝️He that chooses God, devotes himself to God as the vessels of the sanctuary were consecrated and set apart from common to holy uses, so he that has chosen God to be his God, has dedicated himself to God, and will no more be devoted to profane uses.” Thomas Watson
“A soul disengaged from the world is a heavenly one; and then are we ready for heaven when our heart is there before us.” John Newton
“That cross has separated me from the world that crucified my Lord, just as much as if His body were now on the cross, marred and wounded by the world.

[10/29/20]   In Earth As It Is In Heaven!
It doesn’t matter what the world is saying, What really matters is what the King of Kings and Lord of Lord is saying to those of the Kingdom. God’s Providence is at work in the hearts of men for those who pray and walk in faith. There is a purpose for every mind, heart and hand. For Earth must line up with the Holiness which is in Heaven. Every Covenant child of God is like a candle that gives Heavens Light to a dark world. Yahweh has set aside a people to reflect Him in the earth... THROUGH HIS GRACE AND POWER!
1. 1 Peter 2:9 But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

2. Deuteronomy 14:2 You have been set apart as holy to the LORD your God, and he has chosen you from all the nations of the earth to be his own special treasure.

3. Revelation 18:4 Then I heard another voice from heaven say: Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues.

4. Psalm 4:3 You can be sure of this: The LORD set apart the godly for himself. The LORD will answer when I call to him.

God And The Nations - Part 1 - Raising Up A Nation.
Jun 27, 2020

Scripture: Acts 17:24-31, Daniel 4:34-37, Genesis 12:2-3, Genesis 27:27-29, Numbers 24:5-9, Psalms 33:12

Introduction: What determines how great a nation becomes? Is it the character of the leaders or of the people? How do we understand the rising and falling of nations in regard to the will and purposes of God?

God And The Nations -
Raising Up A Nation - Part 1

Today we will be reading from Acts 17:24-31

The United States of America.

What do we know about the USA?

We declared our independence from British rule in 1776 and thereafter won the War of Independence.

America is known as a Christian nation throughout the world.

America’s financial power is known throughout the world.

America’s military power is known throughout the world.

America is a republic where we elect politicians to represent our interests.

America has had numerous peaceful changes of government over the past 200+ years.

What is it that has made America great?

Did WE, as humans, have anything to do with America becoming a great nation or are we just a nation that the Lord Himself has raised up for His purposes for such a time as this?

Let’s read Acts 17:24-31 (prayer for help)

OK. So, let’s take another look at part of the Scripture we just read

Download this sermon with PRO
Acts 17:26

“From one man (Adam) He (God) made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He (God) marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.”

From one man - who was that one man? Adam

Made all the nations - who made all the nations? God did.

What did God control about the nations?

- When they would take place

- Where they would be located

And back to the beginning - who made Adam? God did.

That is the testimony of Paul in Athens as he was declaring the good news about Jesus.

How about the witness of a pagan king?

(Give a little background about what Nebuchadnezzar has just been through …)

- The Lord has raised up Babylon to discipline Israel because of their wickedness and rebellion

- Nebuchadnezzar thinks he is the greatest thing to ever live on the earth

- The word “humility” is not even a part of his vocabulary

- The Lord humbles him for seven years

- Nebuchadnezzar then repents and this is his testimony!

Daniel 4:34-37

“At the end of that time, I, Nebuchadnezzar, raised my eyes toward heaven, and my sanity was restored. Then I praised the Most High; I honored and glorified Him who lives forever.

“His dominion is an eternal dominion; His kingdom endures from generation to generation. All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as He pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back His hand or say to Him: ‘What have you done?’

“At the same time that my sanity was restored, my honor and splendor were returned to me for the glory of my kingdom. My advisers and nobles sought me out, and I was restored to my throne and became even greater than before.

“Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything He does is right and all His ways are just. And those who walk in pride He is able to humble.”

So, we see that the Lord controls the nations of earth according to His timetable and His plans.

We also see that, “He does as He pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth.”

So, is America a dominant nation on the world stage because we have made it so or is America a dominant nation on the world stage because the Lord God has raised us up according to His plans and His purposes?

Did the Lord God raise us up because many of our founding fathers were devout Christians or did He raise us up by selecting devout Christians to be our founding fathers or for some other reason known only to Him?

Let’s take a look at some quotes from some of the founding fathers of America …

George Washington …

"While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian."

Samuel Adams (proclaiming a day of fasting)

"And as it is our duty to extend our wishes to the happiness of the great family of man, I conceive that we cannot better express ourselves than by humbly supplicating the Supreme Ruler of the world that the rod of tyrants may be broken to pieces, and the oppressed made free again; that wars may cease in all the earth, and that the confusions that are and have been among nations may be overruled by promoting and speedily bringing on that holy and happy period when the kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may be everywhere established, and all people everywhere willingly bow to the scepter of Him who is Prince of Peace."

[10/08/20]   Prayer For Wednesday & Thursday.
A steadfast Faith!
🗣🙏✝️Heavenly Father thank You for Your Word, Your Word is Truth. It’s in Your Word all believers stands sure! The Apostle Paul is encouraging the Corinthian Church to remain steadfast. In 1 Corinthians 15:58. Paul says; “ Wherefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not vain in Yeshua. The Apostle Paul is speaking to the Church in light of knowing there shall be a resurrection and Yahweh will make all things new. So he encourages the believers to...”be ye stedfast" hezomai (to sit in faith, but not idle in work); immovable: settled, stedfast, to continue to be firm, incapable of being moved" “HOLD YOUR GROUND" “Stand firm...and let nothing move you" "Keep on becoming stedfast, unshaken. Let the skeptics howl and rage." let the believers stand on the Truth of the Gospel; Paul had preached to them. My prayer today is...regardless of what Your people are going through in life help them to stay strong in the Truth. It may seem that they are experiencing loss, and sickness from this defeated Pandemic. Let the faith of every believer be not shifted from the position of Spirit & Truth. After the resurrection, then rewards for GOOD WORKS, will be acknowledged by Yeshua the King of Kings & Lord of Lords. In Jesus Mighty Name. Amen
JPB.

[10/06/20]   God is Sovereignty,
🗣🙏✝️He stands tall in righteousness. He alone is spotless, as a furnace of Holiness and Righteousness. He is worthy of all praise, glory and honor. Kneel down and worship Him for He is gloriously Triumphant. He holds Love and Peace in one Hand. Wrath and Judgement in the other Hand. The Apostle John said in Revelation 1.12-16; “12I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, 13and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man, d dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. 14The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.” Let all now down and worship the risen Savior! Amen
JPB.

[10/05/20]   "Unspotted"

🗣🙏✝️Often in Bible study, if you want more information about what a word or phrase means, you can find something on the same page that will help; contextual references near the phrase in question. Being unspotted from the world is defined within the book of James - before Jas. 1:27 and after. Before the verse, in James 1:21 - "Lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness." After the verse, in James 4:7,8 - "Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts,
you double-minded." To keep myself unspotted from the world, I must lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and I must purify my heart and cleanse my hands. This is all about personal repentance and determination to avoid all sin and error.

God has forbidden us to participate in very specific mis-behaviors. "Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambition, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God," Gal. 5:19-21.

I must use the Word of God to monitor my heart. If I detect any beginnings of any of these behaviors, I must put them away, to maintain the activity of my faith in God and keep myself unspotted from the world.

This is "Pure and Undefiled Religion Before God and the Father"

I'm afraid, when most people think of religion, they do not think of God the Father. They do not think first of Him and the spiritual blessings He provides in Christ. They think of church stuff (people, groups, organizations, buildings and movements). We are strongly influenced by the religious culture of our time - which is marked by denominations, churches, organizations, human tradition and ritual. It will be to our eternal advantage to identify religion first with God. Right religion is man's response to Him. When man's response is in keeping with His instructions and is expressive of
faith in His Son - then you have "pure and undefiled religion." Anything else is vain.

Finally, if I fail to keep myself unspotted from the world, it really does not matter what else I do! I may learn Bible history well; be able to quote the Bible freely and accurately; win debates with top denominational apologists and give all my goods to feed the poor . . . AND fast three times a week and give my body to be burned. But if I fail to keep myself unspotted from the world, I am not a God-pleasing participant in pure and undefiled religion. Where do you stand at this moment?

From Expository Files 9.3; March 2002

[10/03/20]   Prayer For Friday Through Sunday.
A Song of Joy!
🗣🙏✝️Heavenly Father, Almighty Ruler and Builder of Heavenly Mansions. The Governor of divine Kingdoms. It’s to You we look with praise and honor! Psalm 45:6; “Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.” Here the Psalmist gives an (Epithalamium), a wedding song about the future of a King (Yeshua), His marriage to His elect people. He rules with Righteousness, Justice and Love from an Heavenly Throne. My Prayer today is...Let the redeemed; the Holy bride (Church), and all the people of Yeshua reflect Him in the earth with faith. Let the celebrations of joy be the chanting of thanksgiving and praises. To our King who even now covers His people from all Pandemics, Pestilence, sickness and fears. Hear us Oh Yahweh, as we sing the song of love for our coming King. In Jesus Mighty Name. Amen

[10/01/20]   VOTING SHOULD NOT BE DONE IN FEAR BUT IN FAITH!
🗣🙏✝️The People of Yahweh don’t walk in fear. When you go to vote that’s power, but Yahweh has All Power. So pray before you vote and pray after you vote. Ask the Sovereign Yahweh to step in and heal us and our land. Whatever it is that divides men can be overcome by love, obedience and sacrifice. The command to keep Yahweh’s Commandments should keep the believers focus and sure. Once you have the principles of righteousness for guidance then your faith to stand for what’s right is sound. Trusting Yahweh’s Word puts one’s future in His Hand. Faith is strong and it helps one to overcome any obstacle in life. The body wants what it wants, but a discipline person knows you got to have principles to govern your life. The body is of the earth but you, your soul is from Yahweh. Your spirit goes back to Yahweh. So understand that if I came from Yahweh then it Yahweh’s responsibility to feed me. He comes knocking on the heart. but sometimes people are too busy or in a hurry to hear Him. So He gave Preachers, Pastors after His own Heart to teach the people Yahweh’s commandments. Yahweh has all the Powers of the universe but He came down through Yeshua to show us how to love. Making sacrifices for others is what Love is. The Bible says He Humbled Himself even to the death on the Cross. Humility isn’t a weakness it’s a strength when it’s connected to Yeshua (Jesus Christ).The fruits of the Spirit is a sight when a country is on track for greatness it’s fruits are the evidence of a blessed land, Galatians 5:22-23. A seed must have water, there can be no fruits if you don’t water the seed. Once starts growing It the roots seek water, there can be no fruits without water. Your faith can not grow Spiritual fruits of Heaven if you don’t stay in the Word of Yahweh. Make sure you understand it, how it is to be used in life and for life. You might have a fruit tree life but your fruits an become bitter how? Only the pure in heart shall see Yahweh. Sometimes when life becomes bitter our fruits will also! It’s the sigh of the Holy Spirit telling us we need to make some serious Adjustments. I believe that when we want Yahweh to give us His best, He already know that we didn’t give Him our best. Yet He blessings us more than we deserve. Yahweh will raise up a person for a particular reason or job. You got to understand that Yahweh hears the cry’s of the weak and vulnerable. I mean the very innocent those that cannot speak for themselves who have the right to live. To be born to laugh, cry and hope just like you or I. This is becoming more than a minority problem and I don’t mean just a problem of color. Abortion of unwanted babies is a crime against the moral fabric of Yahweh’s Law. It will surely bring this Nation down! The devil has been allowed a door in the name of Amendment rights to slaughter the innocent. What people need to do is think! If you are a Christian then demand that these abortion laws be changed. This Pandemic is just a virus that has plagued us for the last six mounts. Division and hardship has hit our America and each of us needs to look deep into our selves and say for Christ I live and for Christ I will die! If revival don’t come back to this country and we turn from our way of doing righteousness. Then this Pandemic will bring its friends a more deadly form of sickness and death upon the land. There has to be a turning. The enemy is real and he is working hard to distract Yahweh’s people by how things look in the streets. Listen in the Spirit, listen in the Holy Spirit Yahweh is speaking. Don’t let the unrighteous control your faith. The Bible says to grow in grace and knowledge. If the word of Yahweh is sure the the people of faith should be sure. Stop this system of evil! Don’t to be apart of ungodliness. This is a deep level of evil roots and it’s not coming up easy! But it will be pulled up! Judgement has away that when you are too sick to do any wrong, only to call upon the name of Yeshua is the challenge before us. Elijah told his servant when the enemies of Israel were all around as if they were out numbered. Elijah prayed and asked Yahweh to open his servants eyes so he can see. Let’s look at the text...
2 Kings 6 Chapter 13; “Go, find out where he is,” the king ordered, “so I can send men and capture him.” The report came back: “He is in Dothan.” 14 Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city.

15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked.

🗣16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”

🗣17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

🗣18 As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike this army with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked.

One point I want to make here is, there are times when we can’t trust our own thinking. Not even our understanding when it comes to Holiness, righteousness and purity. Sometimes we cannot really see because of our environment. Jesus told the Pharisees if you would admit that you are blind I would help you to see but since you will not admit you are blind then that is what you will be. The blind leading the blind. In order to see we must pray and ask for Spiritual insight and Principles, in other words Yahweh I need You to help me through this life. If You want me to do the right thing I need to be able to see your way or path. So the Holy Spirit was to helps to understand and see the narrow path of Faith. 🗣The servant was able to see after Elijah prayed. Elijah had become a target because he was carrying out Yahweh Will and Plan. Elijah was not a perfect man but Yahweh raises up imperfect people to set a standard of righteousness against evil. There are some very important issues in this country that must be addressed abortion, same sex marriages, gun control and injustice just to name a few. Just because you have Amendment rights don’t always give us the right. This is what’s destroying this country. Maybe we are falling apart because we are too physically free. But spiritually we need serious guidance from above. We want our cake with all the ingredients because we want it to taste right. We don’t want a flat cake. The Word of Yahweh isn’t always tasty sometimes it’s bitter but sweet for the soul. Yahweh will open the eye of men when there is prayer. Talking to Yahweh is the result of having a relationship with Him. The problem with man if he is not careful, is...we can be talking to ourselves and not Yahweh. Yahweh will lead you where you don’t want to go and tell you what you don’t want to hear in most cases. Yahweh tells us that His WAYS ARE NOT OUR WAYS AND HIS THOUGHTS ARE NOT OUR THOUGHTS. So when one is walking in Faith one must understand faith. It’s not how it looks that counts. It’s Yahweh’s Word and will that counts. It’s through Yahweh’s Word and the bottom line of principles that we as believers are lead. If the some of the Laws of this are against Yahweh Moral Laws they can not stand! If so then we too must bear in on the consequences. Don’t let your surroundings dictate your freedom in the Spirit, nor the righteous principles of Yahweh’s Word in trusted to you. I apologize for writing so much, the Holy Spirit just took over my hand and heart in these words I write. Ephesians 6 Chapter says do all to stand in the Whole Armor of Yahweh. Put on that Helmet of salvation, that Breastplate of righteousness, the belt of Truth, your feet shod with the readiness of the Gospel of peace. It also speaks of the shield of faith that blocks the assaults of the enemy. Then Paul says and pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” (Ephesians 6:10-18).

When you look at man you are looking at a whole lot of failures. For we have all sinned and come short of His glory. Who do you think Yahweh needed to sent to Washington? Sometimes the sins of a Nation have become spiritually harden. The only thing that will break it up is a hard man, a man of toughness. There are times when we look at what we can see in the natural and miss what only one can see in the Spirit. I pray that Yahweh open the eyes of this Nation. Don’t let back lives matter or all the things that affect black peoples throw you off. Understanding Yeshua promised to be with His people always even until the end of the age. Again don’t be distracted by all of this confusion. Stop and listen a shift is taking place in America. For the sake of America Yahweh has come to set His Laws in order. Our hearts must turn to a hard of flesh so Yahweh can touch our understanding. This is about Yahweh everything else has to get line.
