More To John 3:16

Don’t stop short with only part of the truth! 17 and 18 are powerful!

John 3:16-18

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Commentary

John 3:16 is one of the most quoted verses from the Bible, and it’s loving truth that highlights salvation through Jesus is accompanied by powerful context in verses 17 and 18. Today, let us remember together that God “gave” and “sent” His Son into the world willingly. This could not have been to condemn us more, because we were already hopelessly condemned and ensnared by sin. Rather, it is the arrival of Christ that is cause for celebration, because it is through Him alone that we find our only hope of salvation. Hope in God who has given everything to give us hope.

John Haller’s Prophecy Update “Escalation” September 9, 2018

World events and the bible, John Haller.

All Things Must Be Fulfilled

Luke 24:44-49

And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.


Commentary

Recognize that the Old Testament is all about Jesus Christ. The grand design of the Triune God is to reveal Christ at exactly the right time in His story. The truth and power of God comes alive in Jesus, the living Word. Who else could “open their minds so that they could understand the Scriptures”? Again, I say to you – be encouraged! When you believe in Christ you are “clothed with power from on high”; that is the Holy Spirit. He works always to convict and transform your heart for Christ and articulates your salvation for His glory.

John Haller’s Prophecy Update “Quick Change” July 2, 2017

“American marines singing “Days of Elijah” (Lirycs)” (NEVER GETS OLD)

This is a few years old and I believe I have posted it here before, BUT, this never fails to stir my soul!   It never fails to encourage me, lift me, give me a renewed hope!  It always moves me to tears and moves me to praise my King of Kings! Hallelujah! 

Middle-East Prophecy Update – May 28th, 2017  Pastor JD Farag 

Another Jesus, Spirit, Gospel (Pastor Charles Lawson)

Powerful!   This gave me a renewed passion to pray for those I love so dearly that are lost.   God works in amazing ways!  

Seeking to Listen and Understand and Obey 

Ezekiel 2:1-2
And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee.  And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.

Commentary 
When he was called to be a prophet, Ezekiel has a vision of the “likeness of the glory of the Lord”. This completely drains his strength and he falls facedown. Then the Lord speaks to Him this verse, and as it is being spoken, Ezekiel is provided the strength to stand and hear the word of the Lord. In Christ we are granted the Holy Spirit, and rest assured that there is real power and strength that comes with His residence within us. He is able to strengthen, to counsel, to teach and to convict us. With the Spirit of God living in us, we are able to be ambassadors for Christ, messengers of the gospel, bearers of the living water that is found only in Jesus.

2017-Those Who Have Ears to Hear and Eyes to See…

​Isaiah 42:5-9

Thus saith God the Lord,

He that created the heavens, and stretched them out;

He that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it;

He that giveth breath unto the people upon it,

And spirit to them that walk therein:

I the Lord have called thee in righteousness,

And will hold thine hand, and will keep thee,

And give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

To open the blind eyes,

To bring out the prisoners from the prison,

And them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

I am the Lord: that is my name:

And my glory will I not give to another,

Neither my praise to graven images.

Behold, the former things are come to pass,

And new things do I declare:

Before they spring forth I tell you of them.

Have We Any Knowledge?

(Hos 4:1)  Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

(Hos 4:2)  By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.

(Hos 4:3)  Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.

(Hos 4:6)  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.


I read these verses and I cannot help but see America.  Verse 1 says not truth, no mercy and no knowledge of God in the land.  Verse 2 says By swearing and lying and killing and stealing and committing adultery….hmmm.  Yes, that verse fits this country too.

Verse 1 tells us that there is no knowledge of God in the land.  Why? 

Verse 6 tells us that people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.  Why?

Scripture tells us that we have no knowledge because we HAVE REJECTED KNOWLEDGE.  Because of rejecting knowledge from the one who gives it He will also reject us. 

In verse 6 the word destroyed in Hebrew means CUT OFF.  So, my people are cut off for lack of knowledge.

How do we change this?  How do we turn things around?  Can we?

1Sa 2:3  Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.

Psa 14:4  Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.  (I find it interesting that this is said again word for word in Psalm 53:4.)

Let’s pray.   Dear Father in Heaven, as we read Your words written for us in your Holy Bible help us Lord.  Convict each of us however you need to.  Help us to look at our own lives.  Help us to see where we each are lacking.  Help us Lord God to cry out to You, to seek You, to search for You.  Help us Lord God to have the ears to hear You.  Circumcise our hearts.  Circumcise our ears.  Cut away all our wickedness.  Teach us what the meaning of “fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge”.  Help us to read the scriptures and give us understanding as only You can.  Open our eyes and ears and our hearts.  Deuteronomy 30:6 says…And the Lord thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of they seed, to love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all they soul, that thou mayest live.  Help us Lord God Almighty to learn from You and Your perfect  ways.  In these days we see darkness growing and we desire to be a light in the darkness as You have called us to be.  Fill us with Your Holy Spirit.  Keep our lamps full of oil.  May we be ready on that blessed day when we hear the trumpets blow.  Thank you for hearing our cries and our prayers.  Thank you for not turning your back on us and cutting us off as we know we all deserve.  Thank you for your mercy and your grace.  Help each of us to repent where your holy spirit reveals to each one of us.  Help us then to turn from our wickedness and not go back.  In your strength and your strength alone, help us to stand and not be shaken.  It is in the name of Jesus Christ we ask all these things.  We give thanks unto You!  We praise You! 

Psa 119:66  Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.

Pro 1:7  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Pro 2:1  My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

Pro 2:2  So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;

Pro 2:3  Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;

Pro 2:4  If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;

Pro 2:5  Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

Pro 2:6  For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

 

STRANGE THINGS ARE HAPPENING… A Great Tribulation is Coming

TRUTH. ..Do you have eyes to see and ears to hear?

Praise and Prayer in Maralal, Kenya

Beautiful!  

May God continue moving across ALL nations and ALL peoples!  I pray God opens the eyes if those who have been deceived by false gods and idols.

Thank You Jesus Christ for coming and going to the cross for the sins of the world.  I pray that all will accept the gift of salvation that only comes from believing and receiving the truth that You speak of in the Holy Bible.  The word of God.  John 14:6. Jesus saith unto him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me 

Do you know Jesus Christ?
