I Need You – I Cannot Trust Even in my Own Heart

Jeremiah 17:9-10
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings
Psalm 33:13-15
The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.  From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.  He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.


COMMENTARY —-Knowing our own hearts isn’t really our strong suit, though we often think that it is. In fact, there are those who take pride in the fact that they know themselves well, some even reject counsel because they conclude that others cannot possibly know them well enough to give sound advice. Apart from God, we cannot possibly know our own hearts well enough to make choices that reflect our faith. Part of the process is learning how to accept that He knows better, will always know better, and to trust Him completely. If we are willing to face that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, our challenge becomes surrender. We are met with forgiveness, and empowered by grace to see our world differently, and cast aside the idols of our heart. Life cannot be more than when Jesus, the Master, is at the helm.

Jesus in the Old Testament 

Isaiah 61 :1-2

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me;

Because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek;

He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

To proclaim liberty to the captives,

And the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,

The 2nd verse was cut in hslf.  The remaining has not come to pass yet.

2nd half of the 2nd verse.

And the day of vengeance of our God;

To comfort all that mourn;

Luke 4:16-21

And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

GLOBAL BRAIN

What am I talking about? 

NO WORRIES…I WILL BE DEAD.

Not so fast….that was my first thought.  ETA is fully in force by 2030.  Wow…that is way out there.  WRONG AGAIN…It is 13 years….DID YOU READ THAT?  THIRTEEN YEARS!    So, while I cannot fully wrap my mind around it yet, it might be wise if we take a deep breath and review this a little at a time.  First we will begin with what Wikipedia says….

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_brain

So what does all this mean?  Probably way more than I can even imagine.  I will attach one video from Rick Wiles.  He just has his out there now but I first heard John Haller mention it this morning.  I went out and began looking and figured listening to Rick would be cutting to the chase so I am not weeding through all of the video’s out there made by these folks.  (While the year 2030 is thrown out there I also keep thinking about how the UN continues to have their next agenda being due in 2030.  Go figure.  Coincidence right?  I personally do not believe in that.)

PRAY…PRAY…PRAY….

I Cannot Do It!


Psalm 24:3-5
Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.  He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

Commentary 

It is only because of Jesus that anyone can be seen as having “clean hands and a pure heart”. He is the master key that opens the floodgates of God’s grace and allows the power of God to be perfected in our weakness. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, who ever teaches and instructs our hearts and minds, we are able to live transformed as a new creation. Through faith in Christ Jesus, we can be new creations who are able to stand in His holy place. It is Jesus Christ who justifies and qualifies us before God.

Urgent Prayer Request by Amir

“Amir: A Call For An Urgent Prayer!

By Behold Israel Blog, Jan 15, 2017

We are about to enter into a very crucial week in world’s history! On Sunday leaders from more than 70 countries will meet in Paris to basically declare that Jerusalem’s old city doesn’t belong to Israel.

Then on Tuesday that declaration will be pushed as a resolution at the UN Security Council and the way the American ambassador to the UN will vote is still unclear. All of that before the Friday inauguration of a new president in America who publicly opposed all these actions but can’t do a thing to stop them.

Zechariah 12 and Psalm 2 are coming to my mind. And of course all is much clearer in light of Joel 3.

Please pray! Please Share!

“Therefore thus says YHVH God, ‘Surely in the fire of My jealousy I have spoken against the rest of the nations, and against all Edom, who appropriated My land for themselves as a possession with wholehearted joy and with scorn of soul’” (Ezekiel 36:5)

Get ready bride!

Sifting Wheat 

I wonder how many of us -brothers and sisters – ,how many think we are strong enough?  How many of us think we would NEVER deny Jesus Christ?  Peter thought the same thing. We must stay prayed up.  None of us is strong enough left on our own.

Luke 22:31-34
And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:  But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.  And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.  And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

Open Door is Still Available – Don’t Wait 

Micah 7:18-20

Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity,

And passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage?

He retaineth not his anger for ever,

Because he delighteth in mercy.

He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us;

He will subdue our iniquities;

And thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham,

Which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

What We Need 

Proverbs 10:12

Hatred stirreth up strifes:

But love covereth all sins.
