Do you see what I see?
A star, a star dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite …

Listen to what I say
Do you hear what I hear?

A child, a child sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light …

James 1:17 AMPC … Every good gift and every perfect (free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].

… who does not change like shifting shadows. NIV
… with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. NASB
… Unlike them[the heavenly lights], He never changes or casts shifting shadows. NLT
… with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. NRSV
… with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. NKJV

Ephesians 5:8-10 NASB … For you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.

 

Prove and Reprove

August 10, 2015

Prove what is pleasing to the Lord
Don’t be deceived
The fruit of light produces goodness, righteousness and truth.

Reprove – have no fellowship with works of darkness.

2 Corinthians 6:14 AMP
… Or how can light have fellowship with darkness?

The fruit of Light exposes(pierces) the darkness.

John 3:20-21 AMP
For every wrongdoer hates (loathes, detests) the Light, and will not come out into the Light but shrinks from it, lest his works (his deeds, his activities, his conduct) be exposed and reproved. 21  But he who practices truth [who does what is right] comes out into the Light; so that his works may be plainly shown to be what they are—wrought with God [divinely prompted, done with God’s help, in dependence upon Him].

***

Ephesians 5:6-11 KJV
6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

NLT … Don’t be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins,  for the terrible anger of God comes upon all those who disobey him.

7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

From NetBible Eph 5:7

  • partakers[4830] = associate, companion

8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
9 (For the fruit of the Spirit{light} is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

From NetBible Eph 5:10

  • proving[1381] = to test, examine, scrutinise (to see whether a thing is genuine or not)
  • acceptable[2101] = pleasing

11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

From NetBible Eph 5:11

  • fellowship[4790] = share company, co-participate
  • reprove[1651] = convict, refute, correct, rebuke, expose

Love in Deed and Truth

April 12, 2015

1 John 3:18 NASB
18 Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.

From NetBible 1 Jn 3:18

  • *understand the first noun in each pair as produced by the second noun: Words are produced by the tongue, and the (righteous) deeds with which believers are to love one another are produced by the truth.

Words are produced by the tongue
Deeds are produced by Truth
=> The way we love one another is produced by Truth.

1 Peter 1:22 AMP
22 Since by your obedience to the Truth through the [Holy] Spirit you have purified your hearts for the sincere affection of the brethren, [see that you] love one another fervently from a pure heart.
23 You have been regenerated (born again), not from a mortal origin (seed), but from one that is immortal by the ever living and lasting Word of God.

Obedience to the Truth(Word of God) purifies the heart
This purification precedes the ability to love one another fervently.

Ephesians 5:8-11 NASB
8 … you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them …
