Isaiah 54:6 KJVS
For the Lord hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God.
Isaiah 54:7-8 KJVS
For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.
 In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer.
I understand the context is concerning Israel. I also believe that if you are a child of God’s that we can also embrace this. We will all go through good times and not so good times. The word moment is what I want to focus on here. Truth is that our lives are full of brief moments. Even months or years (sometimes just hours or days feel like too much), but regardless of the span of time you seem to be suffering, it IS but a MOMENT in all of eternity. God is with us and will always sustain you in those moments, brief or long. He is there. Lean on Him. Cry out to Him. Draw close to Him. It is ALWAYS in these moments, long or short that I grow the most. BUT I only experience the growth when I lean into my redeemer, my salvation, my ONLY hope. He always brings me through stronger and yet softer. A little more humble. He and He alone gives me peace. Remember, His peace is not the peace the world gives but it is a peace that can only come from Jesus Christ. A peace between God and man and not a peace between man and this world.

Thank You Father in Heaven for your Living Word! Thank you for the scriptures. Thank you for men like Pastor Charles Lawson who still preach Your truth, the ONLY TRUTH! Keep your hand upon him and keep him safe and may he continue to preach until You take him home or all of us! Even so come Lord Jesus come.
Posted from a Wednesday night teaching just after Covid-19 caused restrictions in America from 10 or more gathering. Thank You mighty God for Paster Charles Lawson! Thank You for blessing our generation with a man of God preaching the truth….the word of God!
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.

Be careful and choose your friends wisely. Later I have something to share with you all. It is a clear warning to each of one of us . I am 52 and I have just become aware of this wicked thing being disguised as something good. (My hope will be to reveal just how easy it is to be deceived in this busy hectic world. Often we just glance at something that seems good and claims to be Godly and we go with it. I will show later how dangerous that is. Stick close to Jesus Christ in these dark days. He is truly our best friend and our ONLY hope. (If you seek Jesus Christ only then the Holy Spirit will dwell with you and guide you and you won’t have to fear being fooled by the deception that is scattered like litter all around us. Waiting for one to trip and fall and to be devoured by the evil prowling around for the next victim.
1 Thessalonians 5:20-24
Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
There is clearly a place for the prophetic in the new covenant in Christ Jesus. Prophecy upon prophecy was fulfilled by the life of Christ and in many situations Jesus mentions that He does certain things to “fulfill that which was spoken” by various Old Testament prophets. Part of our sanctification is training in the discernment of what is good and what is evil. This work cannot be done apart from the power of God manifest within us in the person of the Holy Spirit. In this way God is right there with us going through each test and trial, leading and shaping us for His glory.
