Blessings of the ABBA ADONIA ELOHIM in the precious name of MESSIAH YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST through HIS HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.
Greetings to Everyone!
I hope this finds you blessed, healthy, and striving to follow our SAVIOR and MESSIAH along HIS narrowing path. The times we're now facing are very difficult indeed as we also begin to experience birth pains. JESUS taught us these days would not be easy ones to live through. In Matthew 11:16-24 we read, "But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children. Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not: Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee."
In Matthew 11:25-30, JESUS teaches us to first pray and thank our FATHER in heaven, gently and lovingly encouraging us with these words; "At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
No matter how difficult and trying things can get there is always another person who has it far more diffcult, more trying, more unsurmountable, more anything else, more than you do, more than I do. Let us encourage our neighbor, foe and friend, to be lead by the one true LIGHT, the one true voice of reason, the one who isn't lead by self-motivation or selfishness but always with pure love for our FATHER who is in heaven.
JESUS taught how we're to pray to our FATHER in heaven. It's written in Matthew 6:5-8: HE explains, "And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him."
JESUS instructs on the manner we are to pray to our FATHER (Matthew 6:9-13): "After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 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."
In Matthew 6:14-29: JESUS explains the reasons it's so important to forgive others, to fast and pray only to our FATHER so HE alone hears our petitions and prayers, to keep holy all of the members of our vessels with particular mention of what we allow and permit our eyes to see for what our eyes witness goes straight into our minds, and what goes into our minds will either be "full of light" (holy) bringing purity to the entire vessel (body) which is the holy temple of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY or "full of darkness" (evil) bringing impurity to it.
JESUS reassures us to have faith in our FATHER for HE knows all of what our needs are (Matthew 6:30-32): "Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things."
JESUS proceeds to encourage us (Matthew 6:33-34): "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.", gently forewarning us to be mindful that each day is filled with its' own troubles, "Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof."
If you don't know JESUS CHRIST as your personal MESSIAH, LORD, and SAVIOR, why not seek HIM out. HE loves us all and all the FATHER has given to HIM. HE's longing for you to come to HIM just as you are. There isn't any one who's been born that's not a sinner, all people are. Look into your own mirror to change your character and cease from glaring at someone else's sins, your filled with many of your own (as I am). HE took our sins upon the wooden cross and there our sins remain if we sincerely and deeply repent of our sins and leave our old selves there at the foot of HIS cross. Trust all HE's done to redeem your life on your behalf. As JESUS CHRIST rose from the dead and is alive today, so are you who have died to sin and risen to being a new creation through our MESSIAH. May this season's reminder of the death and resurrection of our MESSIAH JESUS bring you renewed hope and vitality to continue to be filled with HIS strength, focusing on HIS direction, and keeping steadfast upon all HE has taught us through HIS Words (verbal and written), deeds, actions, and love. Never let HIM go, never walk away, remember it's we who leave and walk away from GOD, HE has never left us, ever. Endure all in JESUS' precious name. Amen.
May JESUS continue to bless and fill your lamps with all HE knows you're each in need of, you, your loved ones, and your neighbors -- friends and foes -- forgive everyone, hope for their forgiveness for you, and pray GOD grants you mercy, forgiveness, and pardons you all, and places your name in HIS Book of Life.
yours through MESSIAH YESHUA/JESUS CHRIST,
Peace. Netta <(^8
