No One Can Touch You Like Prayer from Jesus Himself

The High Priestly Prayer

Joh 17:1  These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 

Joh 17:2  As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 

Joh 17:3  And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 

Joh 17:4  I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 

Joh 17:5  And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. 

Joh 17:6  I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 

Joh 17:7  Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 

Joh 17:8  For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 

Joh 17:9  I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 

Joh 17:10  And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 

Joh 17:11  And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 

Joh 17:12  While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 

Joh 17:13  And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 

Joh 17:14  I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 

Joh 17:15  I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 

Joh 17:16  They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 

Joh 17:17  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 

Joh 17:18  As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 

Joh 17:19  And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. 

Joh 17:20  Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 

Joh 17:21  That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 

Joh 17:22  And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 

Joh 17:23  I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 

Joh 17:24  Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 

Joh 17:25  O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 

Joh 17:26  And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

Dear Lord God, my Creator, my Sustainer, my King, my Savior, my EVERYTHING!  Write thy words on the tablets of my heart.  Hide thy words within my heart.  Help me Lord to keep my eyes upon You.  You and You alone will keep me safe.

(Psa 119:9)  BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

(Psa 119:10)  With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.

(Psa 119:11)  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

(Psa 119:12)  Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.

 

Like a Family Quilt 

We cry out and we are saved and then what?

1 John 4:15 

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.

Romans 10:9-13

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Colossians 3:16

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Galatians 6:1-2

Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

1 Thessalonians 5:11

Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

Jude 1:22-23

And of some have compassion, making a difference: and others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

 

Comparison

I am a person who likes to quilt.  I am nor the best but I have made some pretty nice ones for a beginner who for the most part was self taught.   Thanks for you tube videos and the tips I have found from many who are professionals!

So we have the quilt that is so worn and soft and it is used often. Then we have the quilt that IS very beautiful but it seems to be stuck up in the top shelf of the closet and the closet that is located in the bedroom that is vacant and rarely occupied even for a night.

I wonder if Christians can define themselves as the quilt that is accessible and used often or as the one hidden in the top of a closet that is rarely even seen?

It is interesting how maybe we think we are doing well by putting the beautiful quilt away for that special guest that might stop in one day.  Ironically they would probably want the one that the rest of the family goes for.  The nice soft and comfortable and the accessible one.

The quilts might be likened unto two grandmothers.  One is accessible and one is not.  One is comforting and the other is not.   The one that is soft and accessible and often used for comfort, just to be wrapped up in love.  That one probably has much wisdom to share.  She has many family stories to share.  She shares family history.  The one that is rarely used is a little stiff.   Can it be likened to a person that makes you feel a little like you are intruding on them and therefore they simply feel they would do you a favor and fold you back up and put you back up in the dark top shelf of the closet?

God created both.  Both cried out to God that they might be saved.  God called both to go out and comfort many.  God desires both to be used for the glory of the Lord.

It may not be easy for the quilt in the dark closet.  Maybe it longs to share the warmth that God gave it to share.  Perhaps it was in a home for most of the folded years where no one wanted to see it or hear from it so opening up is not as easy for it.  Maybe the one that is so wonderfully used never lived a moment being folded up and stuck in darkness and therefore is confident and comfortable being around everyone.  The one in the closet might be yearning for someone to get it out and wash it a time or two help it, diciple it.

We may cry out to the Lord and He does hear our cry and He saves us but then what?   Most need someone who is able to take them out of the darkness and into the light and show them the ropes.   Soon that quilt might be comfortable and accessible too.  If you are saved and no one cares about you right after then you are more than likely going to go back into the darkness where you feel accepted.  It isn’t where we are called to be but for many of us we are still too vulnerable to be in the light without someone walking with us and showing us the next steps in our journey with the Lord.

As Christians we are all part of the blocks that are sewn together.  Together we can make that family quilt.  Do you see someone who might be gravitating back into the dark closet?  Are you standing around gossiping about them and saying how they must have never been saved?  Are you going to them and helping them feel accepted in their new walk so they don’t end up vulnerable and more comfortable in the place they first started.

Matthew 12:43-45

When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
Jude 1:22-23

And of some have compassion, making a difference: and others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
I  will end with this praise to the Lord.

Jude 1:24-25

Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Middle – East Prophecy Update – April 10th, 2016 JD Farag

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.

John Haller’s Prophecy Update “2015 in Review” December 27th 2015

Is this Important?

Lately I’ve been going back and looking at wording in the KJV.   This morning as I was looking at some scripture the word CRIED leaped off my Bible page.

I went back and looked at the Greek text to get a better look at the original translation.   There were a couple of things mentioned.  Shout out, speak loudly or yell it out, or to croan like a raven.  What about when we today. …just you and I.  If we feel passionate about something important and don’t think those we love understand the importance of that which we are trying to get them to hear, do we then cry out?   Speaking only for myself I know I  do both, I cry out maybe with tears and a louder voice.  When I do this it is because of a sense of urgency!   Are you listening?   Please hear me because this is SO VERY IMPORTANT.   So, could the Lord Jesus Christ have meant this in such an urgent way?  I believe so.  

John 7:37-38
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

We all ought to listen up when Jesus speaks but maybe pay even greater attention to when He, our King,  our Savior and our Lord of Lords CRIED out when He spoke certain things.  Search the scriptures for other instances when Jesus Christ cried out when speaking.  You might want to search the KJV first and then compare to another bible translation if it is easier for you to understand.  Just remember to keep in mind He cried out and the some translations might downplay that word with one not quite as urgent.

God bless each of you as you search the scriptures.

Holy Spirit & Faith

Ephesians 4:30
30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

1 Thessalonians 5:19
19 Do not quench the Spirit.

Galatians 5:16-18
Walk by the Spirit
16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
(Brothers & sisters,  we cannot live life simply by doing that which we desire to do because it feels good but be sure it lines up with the will of the Father. )

Hebrews 11:1
By Faith (what is faith? )
11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

2 Corinthians 5:7
7 for we walk by faith, not by sight.

Hebrews 10:38
38 but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back,
my soul has no pleasure in him.”

Hebrews 11:6
6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

I hope today you all find encouragement in these words. Hold fast to that which we have in Christ Jesus for we are in the last days!
