O LORD my God, many are the wonders You have done for us.
Your wonders and good plans for us are too many to count! –

My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!

Abide and Let Fruit Be Evident!

April 12, 2017


.

John 15:4-5 AMPC … Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me. 5 I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.

Abide in Christ
Cling to Him and live

True love and joy is only found in fellowship with the Father
And His Son Jesus Christ

Let your heart be vitally united to the Father and the Son
=> your fruit will be evident to all!

Galatians 5:22-23 AMPC … But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence). Against such things there is no law [that can bring a charge].

Lift Up Your Cup!

April 10, 2017

Psalm 116:12-14 AMPC
12 What shall I render to the Lord for all His benefits toward me? [How can I repay Him for all His bountiful dealings?]
13 I will lift up the cup of salvation and deliverance and call on the name of the Lord.
14 I will pay my vows to the Lord, yes, in the presence of all His people. …
… 17 I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving and will call on the name of the Lord.

Before you lift up your cup to be filled
Make sure it’s empty and clean!

Praise the Lord!
He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
He anoints my head with oil; My cup runs over.Ps 23:5

Ephesians 5:18-20 AMPC
18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but ever be filled and stimulated with the [Holy] Spirit. 19 Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord, 20 At all times and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father.

1 Corinthians 11:23-32 NASB
The Lord’s Supper
23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes. 
27 Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. 28 But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly. 30 For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep. 31 But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 NASB
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

Key

April 7, 2017

Revelation 5:1-5, 9I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a book written inside and on the back, sealed up with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the book and to break its seals?” 3 And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the book or to look into it. 4 Then I began to weep greatly because no one was found worthy to open the book or to look into it; 5 and one of the elders *said to me, “Stop weeping; behold, the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as to open the book and its seven seals.” …
… Worthy are You{the Lamb} to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.

keydavid

Only the Lion of Judah
The Root of David
Jesus Christ can open
The Book of Life –
Rev 20:15
The Book of the Lamb
Jesus Christ the Lamb who was slain
He alone is worthy
He alone has the key
To open the door to eternal life. 

Revelation 1:16-18 NASB … In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength.
17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, 18 and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.

Revelation 3:7-8 NASB … He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this:
8 ‘I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name’.

Revelation 21:1-2, 27 NASB … Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. …
… 27 and nothing unclean, and no one who practices abomination and lying, shall ever come into it, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Two Kinds of Wine and Blood

April 6, 2017

.

Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. –Eph 5:18

wine[3631] = fiery wine of God’s wrath, winepress
debauchery[810] = an abandoned, dissolute, prodigal, unsaved life

O LORD my God, I cried out to You, And You healed me. –Ps 30:2
What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise You? Will it declare Your faithfulness? –Ps 30:9

blood[01818] = blood shed causing death, wine

Two kinds of wine!
=>Wrath or Salvation(filled with the Spirit)

1 Corinthians 5:7 AMPC … Purge (clean out) the old leaven that you may be fresh (new) dough, still uncontaminated [as you are], for Christ, our Passover [Lamb], has been sacrificed.

1 Peter 1:18-19 AMPC … You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver and gold,19 But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot.

Two kinds of blood!
=>Wrath{death} or Lamb’s blood{life}

Deuteronomy 32:12-14 NASB …  The Lord alone guided him,
And there was no foreign god with him. 13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, And he ate the produce of the field; And He made him suck honey from the rock, And oil from the flinty rock, 14 Curds of cows, and milk of the flock,
With fat of lambs, And rams, the breed of Bashan, and goats, With the finest of the wheat— And of the blood[01818] of grapes you drank wine.

Honey = God’s word –Ps 119:103
Oil = Holy Spirit –Zec 4:6
Rock = Christ –1Cor 10:4
