Simple

John 6:29 is really pretty simple. Yet we as created people try our hardest to try to make simple things complicated.

I looked up the definition of simple. First it came up with definition as adjectives :

  1. Easy to understand
  2. Not complicated
  3. Free of deceit, sincere
  4. Humble or lowly
  5. A simple way of thinking

As a noun:

  1. Something simple, uncompounded
  2. Person of humble origins

Then I looked at the synonyms. I really liked the clarity they added to what was already easy to understand.

  1. Clean
  2. Homey
  3. Humble
  4. PURE
  5. Absolute
  6. Not difficult
  7. **childlike and innocent
  • A couple of things I noticed as I chose the words that describe the WORD of GOD that is given to us in the Holy Bible, the scriptures.

Psalm 116:6 (KJV)

The Lord preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and He helped me.

Matthew 18:3 (KJV and NIV)- Jesus is speaking

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

NIV

And he said, Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Romans 8:16

KJV The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.

NIV The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.

A couple of things I take away are:

Humble ourselves before the LORD and ask for Him to help us and teach us and reveal Himself to us in His word. So that we might truly be converted, or changed, and so that we become like or as little children. But wait! Are you saying we should be childish? NO, not childish in our behavior or thinking; but innocent as children, pure as children. Children are always learning and growing. They trust their Father and no one can convince them that their Father is wrong, or that they can’t TRUST Him. They believe His word with everything that is in them!

Praise God! Keep it simple and believe in Jesus Christ, hold onto your faith! Don’t become like teenagers who go out into the world and begin listening to worldly people such as their teachers or so many other unbelievers trying to confuse you. Holding on to the truth of Jesus Christ and be not deceived.

John 6:29

Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.


Commentary

The question is, “Who sent Jesus Christ?” For believers, it’s not really a question…because we know God the Father sent Him.

However for some, it is a question. Some say Jesus is a prophet, some say He was merely a teacher.

The issue on the table is His claim to deity; the claim He made to be God. Being a Christian means you believe that claim, and also believe He took the fullness of God’s wrath on the cross in our place.

Among all the things you could “do for God”, one thing matters most. Believe in Jesus Christ – “who is, who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” (Revelation 1:8)

“URGENT MESSAGE FROM THE LORD, wake up CATHOLICS”

Please give this woman a listen.

Is the USA in the Bible? Great American Eclipse Aug 21st, 2017 a Real End Time Sign? 

I have watched many different things on this subject.   I have dug into the scriptures on this subject.  I  may not always agree with everything this pastor speaks,  but then I don’t agree 100% with any pastor.   I will say that he said some things that I hadn’t heard until this video.   I pray everyone would listen to and at least consider what he says and pray about it and as we are always told to fo, KEEP WATCHING AND LOOKING UP! 

“The improbable Victory, not by our strength…Run to JESUS! HE is the Finish Line!”

Beautiful testimony. ..moving from darkness to the light.  The true light.  Not a light that can be blown out but a light that will shine brightly wherever it goes!  Jesus Christ still lives!  He is still coming to all to seek Him, to all who cry out to Him, to any who hear Him knocking on their hearts !  He loves you and wants to come in.  You have to ask Him, you have to open the door and don’t give up, keep seeking the only One who has the power to save!  God bless you all.  God is not finished yet!

Shhh… Did You Hear?

Even so come…Lord Jesus come! 

Prayer and Listening

Goes hand in hand with the post I made a few minutes ago.  Pray more AND listen.

Ezekiel 3:10
And he said to me, “Son of man, listen carefully and take to heart all the words I speak to you.
COMMENTARY
Communicating with God is a two-way street. As we pray and cast ourselves before the throne of grace, we must remember to listen. Throughout the entire bible, we read story upon story of how God speaks to various people. Even more, remember that the Holy Spirit of God resides within us and is always on guard and poised to bring us a Word from the Lord. Listening serves two purposes, first off it shows God that you want to hear from Him. Second, it is a great tool to slow down our thoughts and not rush through prayer or other time we’ve committed to God alone.

Motives When Asking God

image

When asking the Lord for confirmation of something,  many say you shouldn’t and that is like questioning Him.  We must have the correct motives.  Seeking Him with all our heart and truly wanting His wisdom and guidance.   God will gladly answer that.   We see that in the scriptures below.

Judges 6:36-38
Gideon said to God, “If you will save Israel by my hand as you have promised—  look, I will place a wool fleece on the threshing floor. If there is dew only on the fleece and all the ground is dry, then I will know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you said.”  And that is what happened. Gideon rose early the next day; he squeezed the fleece and wrung out the dew—a bowlful of water.

COMMENTARY
Gideon is in the middle of a “doubting Thomas” moment here with God.  This makes me think of when the Pharisees would ask Jesus for a sign, and he would refuse them because of their motives.  Gideon wants to trust God fully, and this is an exercise in trust to build Gideon’s faith in God.  Gideon’s heart was open to God, and that served him well.  The hearts of the Pharisees and Jewish leaders of Jesus’ time; their hearts were not open to God.  They sought signs that served their own selfish motives, not God’s sovereign plan of redemption.

THEN WE HAVE.. 

Judges 6:39-40
Then Gideon said to God, “Do not be angry with me. Let me make just one more request. Allow me one more test with the fleece, but this time make the fleece dry and let the ground be covered with dew.”  That night God did so. Only the fleece was dry; all the ground was covered with dew.

COMMENTARY
Yesterday, we saw God graciously respond to Gideon’s request for a sign.  Today, we see Gideon ask for another sign regarding the fleece, and God AGAIN responds with affirmation that He will deliver Israel through Gideon.  This asking for a 2nd sign reveals a sense of how far God is willing to go for His children, and how willing and honest we can be with God as we walk with Him and are led by Him into the plans He has for us.  God is ever-revealing Himself to all people in so many ways.  Gideon was willing to share his need honestly, and God again extends grace and confirms the plan.

Created or Evolved? Which are You?

WARNING. ..WARNING. ..WARNING

Are you a proclaimed atheist?   What will you say when you stand before your Creator?   7 minutes…watch,  listen,  take a chance. Ask God the Father in Heaven to lift the veil from your eyes if He is real! 

What have you got to lose if I  am wrong? 

What will you gain if I am right?

Just as I cannot see or know your good or your bad thoughts, there is one who already knows everything about you.  More than even you know yourself.

Why does God open our eyes on one day and yet you cried out many times before and got crickets?   I asked that same question many times in my own life.  Sometimes we don’t know that answer.  I don’t fully understand it concerning my own life.   Maybe I really wasn’t ready when I cried out in need before.  Maybe for me it was more of a process of getting to the place where you know that you know that you know. Some people seem to just be changed immediately and others like me need a slower molding process.  Mold put on the fire and heat me up and mold me a little more and heat me up and mold me a little more.

I don’t have to know why because I trust the Lord God knows way more about what He is doing than I do. I clearly screw things when left to my own devices.
