Praise the Lord God Almighty for men like this! God still uses all of us in different ways. We might be a small candle instead of a light bulb that shines a brighter light nonstop and that draws many to its brightness. Ler us not forget that the light in each one of us from a small candle to the brightest bulb is still the Holy Spirit and he shines the light on darkness in ways we don’t even realize. We can’t all be “Zev Porat”, but God is able and does use all who are willing. For me it is simply sharing these types of things, or it is simply lifting someone at work up in prayer or with a hug or simply telling them they have done a great job and thank you! Friday I did that with an email to a woman I have never met but through my job we communicate here and there. Not on a consistent basis or anything. I had asked her for information the day before and she worked quickly to get the answers. I just emailed her after and copied a few key people and told her I appreciated her going above and beyond at quickly resolving this issue. I said you might be asking “fir what, just doing my job”? I would say, you wouldn’t believe how many don’t get right in there and do as you do. You are set apart from the rest and simply wanted you to know how much I appreciate you.
(So, yes, something as simple as that gives encouragement in a dark depressing world. She sent me an email back without the other folks on it and said WOW, thank you for such a wonderful complimentary email. Such kind words and you made my day! I told her I don’t give them out unless I mean what I say. I told her I was glad it made her day and I hoped it put a smile on her face and a spring in her step!) You know in this world we often are all to easy to point out the things people do wrong and criticize people in an email with many people on it but we should take time to be a light that shines brightly on little things in daily life, and maybe let their bosses know about those things. That does brighten the days of people. So, something so small and easy can be used! I feel God uses me more to encourage and uplift people. We are all part of the body of Christ Jesus and we can’t all be the arm or a foot. The body has many parts!
What part are you?
New to prophecy or just want a quick refresher and update? This is perfect for either one!
Pastor JD Farag -thank you
If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
Today, consider vs. 39-40. Jesus is speaking to the religious leaders of the time – the ones who have memorized scripture. You can study scripture all of your life and still not come to Jesus. Knowing God comes to you through relationship with Jesus Christ. You can know about God without knowing God yourself. These scholars of scripture are waiting for a foretold savior’s arrival, yet they do not recognize that Christ is that savior…that Messiah. Christ alone is the living Word of God that sets us all free from the law of sin and death.

Many of us know these verses, but it was the commentary. Actually it was the last question in the commentary that caught my attention. We must never grow so comfortable with what we think is true. We need to always keep ourselves in check. That was what this did fir me this morning. Caused me to really think about it.
Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
Jesus’ washing of the disciples’ feet goes fine until He reaches Peter. Only after Jesus tells Peter that it was a requirement of being with Christ does he change his mind. This is a foreshadowing of what Christ was about to do on the cross, in more ways than one. Interesting that Peter initially denies Christ here, and then denies Christ again 3 times later as Jesus predicted. It is also interesting that Jesus washes Judas’ feet, knowing that he would betray Him. Consider those examples today. Are you able to receive what Jesus did for you?
