                                                                   INTRODUCTION 

     

    THERE IS A FIFTH GRADE CLASS SOMEWHERE IN AMERICA. A TEACHER ASKS THE CLASS WHAT DO YOU THINK THE MOST POWERFUL THING KNOWN TO MANKIND? THE KIDS WERE QUITE FOR A FRW SECONDS WHEN A BOY IN THE FRONT SAID ARMY TANKS ARE REAL POWERFUL. THEN A SECOND BOY IN THE BACK RAISED HIS HAND WHEN CALLED UPON HE SAID A BALLISTIC MISSLE. NO NO A THIRD BOY SAID ITS THE ATOMIC BOMB. AT THAT POINT EVERYONE SEEMED TO BE IN AGREEMENT. UNTIL IN THE FRONT OF THE CLASS A GIRL RAISED HER HAND. THE TEACHER ASKED WHAT IS IT? THE GIRL REPLIED YOU ALL HAVE THE WRONG ANSWER. THE MOST POWERFUL THING WE HAVE IS *PRAYER* SOME BEGAN TO GIGGLE. WHEN THE TEACHER SAID WHAT DO YOU MEAN? ASKING FOR THE CLASS AS MUCH AS HERSELF. THE GIRL SAYS PRAYER CAN MOVE THE HAND OF GOD. EVERYTHING SPOKE OF ONLY DESTROYS. PRAYER BRINGS RESTORATION. HONESTLY SHE GOES ON TO SAY. WE ALL KNOW GOD IS ALL POWERFUL AND HE GAVE US THE POWER OF PRAYER TO CHANGE THINGS. 

    WE WILL TAKE A LOOK INTO PRAYER. LETS SEE WHERE THE LORD WILL LEAD US. I WILL BEGING THIS TOPIC IN A FEW DAYS. UNTIL THEN. THANK YOU ALL FOR JOINING ME HERE IN THE FUTURE. BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                    PRAYER   

                                                           THE LORDS PRAYER 

    Today we will start out with a fimiiar scriptures found in Matthew.  This is often quoted in many services each week in our places of worship. However that was not the intent behind the giving of this portion of the WORD, actually to the contrary, Jesus said in it this is not for repetition.then why did HE give it us? It is an outline on how to get the best into our prayer hence getting the most out of our prayer  What i will do is to break it down by phrase. HE begins with OUR FATHER  This is important in several ways  First who we are addressing THE FATHER in Jesus saying this puts into place also we need to be HIS children through the RESURRECTION of Christ and us receiving the free gift that it provides.It also states indirectly that HE puts us as believers as equal position on approaching THE FATHER with HIM  He will one day say we are coheirs to the kingdom.That in of itself is amazing, and something worth meditating upon. So we start by acknowledging THE FATHER as ours. This allows us to come into the presence of our LORD. The last phrase i will talk about is WHO ART IN HEAVEN. This is perspective, it should give us a since of reverence, as we realize this means we are seated in heavenly places. This simply means we are always present with the LORD. Also this means at any time any place we are able to humbly approach the throne yet with great boldness. Great confidence in our prayers being heard and answered. It also is how we start our prayer. We begin by praising GOD for pretty much everythig and anything. Especially the honor to be one of HIS children,think on that for awhile This is where perspective kicks in. Who am I Who GOD is  and Who i am through GOD. I am Everyting with HIM and i am nothing with out HIM 

    This is where i will leave it today, idk how long we will spend here. However seeing this is the most powerful thing we have in our quiver i will probably take a little slower to try to put in as much as possible. idk when i will return but it won't be to long . Until then thank you for dropping in GODSPEED Blessing One Love PD

                                                                  PRAYER 

                                                          THE LORDS PRAYER 

    STILL LOOKING AT PHRASES BEFORE WE LOOK AT IT ONE MUST GRASP THE REALITY THAT EVERY WORD IS SPOKEN BY GOD. THEY ARE SPOKEN EXACTLY IN THE WORDAGE GOD WANTED. SO CONSIDER THE COMBINATION OF WORDS AS WE PROCEED. 

    TODAY WE WILL LOOK AT THE PHRASE HOLLOW BE THY NAME. THIS AGAIN FALLS UNDER SEVERAL CATEGORIES THE FIRST PERSPECTIVE AS ALWAYS. ALWAYS ENVISION YOURSELF LITERALLY IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD. THERES NOTHING CASUAL BOUT THAT. SECOND FROM GOD AS OUR FATHER WE ARE RECOGNIZING HE IS HOLY. THERE ARE MANY WORDS WE CAN USE TO EXPRESS WHAT HOLY IS. OBVIOUSLY WITH OUT SIN. ALL KNOWING SEEING AND EXISTS IN NO TIME FRAME YET EVERY TIME FRAME. HE THINKS THINGS AND THEY COME TO PASS. THIRD TO BUILD UPON NUMBER TWO HE IS SET APART FROM EVERYTHING ESPECIALLY NOTED DEMI gods HE DOES THE SAME THING WITH US IF WE DESIRE. HE WILL SET US APART FROM THE WORLD (THROUGH SALVATION GIVEN US FREELY BY CHRIST/ THE ONE SAYING THESE WORDS) SECONDARY HE SETS US APART FROM OTHER BELIEVERS ( NOT SEPARATE HE PUTS US TOGETHER) TO MAKE US HOLY. HE BEGINS A LIFE LONG COMMENT TO COMPLETE THE WORK HE BEGAN WITH US AT BIRTH. HOWEVER ONCE A CHILD HE EMPOWERS OUR GIFTS IN WHICH HE USES TO MAKE US HOLY ( SET APART). LASTLY SETTING US APART GIVES US TIME TO BUILD A INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR FATHER. YES GOD WANTS A LOVE RELATIONSHIP. SO *HOLLOW IS THY NAME* IS A FORM OF PRAISE. THAT WILL DEPEND ON YOU AND HIM HOW YOU WILL PRAISE HIM. LIKELY THROUGH THE RELATIONSHIPS AND THE GIFTS WE CAN USE TO BUILD THE KINGDOM. THEY WILL ALWAYS BE CONNECTED TO THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT. THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT WILL ENHANCE YOUR GIFTS APPLICATION. 

    THIS IS WHERE I WILL STOP TODAY. I HOPE YOU ARE BEING BLEST AS I AM. I PRAY LITERALLY THAT YOU WILL BE INSPIRED AS YOU MEDITATE UPON THE CONCEPTS BEING BROUGHT FORWARD. I AM ALWAYS GRATEFUL FOR YOU STOPPING IN. I WILL BE BACK IN A FEW SAYS. UNTIL THEN GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                  PRAYER 

                                                           THE LORDS PRAYER 

    TODAY I WILL MOVE TO THE NEXT PHRASE. *THY KINGDOM COME*. THE NEXT PHRASE IS ALMOST A GIVEN THAT THEY ARE CONNECTED AND RIGHTLY SO YET AT THE SAME TIME THERE IS A DISTINCTION.  SO A FEW THINGS TO CONSIDER. THY KINGDOM IS NOT A PLACE BUT RATHER A PERSON. WE FIND THIS TO BE TRUE FOR JESUS HIMSELF WAS INTRODUCED BY JOHN THE BAPTIST AS THAT EXACT PHRASE. JESUS MENTIONED IT IN THE VS THAT SAYS. * SEEK YE FIREST THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AND (HIS)….  YET THE KINGDOM IS ALSO OUR HARVEST FIELD AS THE CHURCH. THE BODY OF CHRIST. WHAT WE ARE LOOKING AT IS HE IS COMING.

    WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT? WELL ALTHOUGH WE MAY NOT KNOW THE PRECISE MOMENT HE WILL ARRIVE. EACH DAY BRINGS US CLOSER TO THAT REALITY. SO LIKE ANY CHILD WHO KNOWS YOUR PARENTS ARE ON THEIR WAY HOME YOU DO NOT MESS THE HOUSE UP. WE AS THE BODY SHOULD BE BUSY BUILDING THE KINGDOM.

    WHAT DOES THAT LOOK LIKE? WE ARE TO BE MAKING DISCIPLES ACCORDING TO THE GREAT COMMISSION. TO DO THAT WE MUST FIRST BRING THEM TO A POINT WHERE THEY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SALVATION. THEN WE START THE PROCESS OF DISCIPLESHIP
    .

    THAT IS ONGOING THROUGHOUT OUR LIVES. SO WE BECOME MINISTERS OF THE WORD. WE BRING THE BROTHER OR SISTER IN CHRIST TO A GREATER REVELATION. THEN THERES THE WHAT I CALL GENERAL EVERYDAY THINGS WE WOULD DO LIKE PRAYING MEDITATION READ AND JOURNAL THE WORD. LEARN WHAT YOUR SUPPOSED TO DO AND KEEP WITH IT. 

    ANOTHER WORDS BE A DO’ERS OF THE WORD NOT JUST A LISTENER. LEARNING IS KNOWLEDGE. UNDERSTANDING WHAT TO DO WITH KNOWLEDGE IS APPLY TO OUR LIVES. THATS WISDOM. SIMPLER EQUATION KNOWLEDGE PLUS UNDERSTANDING PLUS APPLYING IS WISDOM. WE WANT TO BE FOUND FAITHFUL IN DOING.

    THE OTHER THING AT THE SAME TIME WE ARE CONSTANTLY WORKING ON OUR RELATIONSHIP IN CHRIST IS ALSO BUILDING THE KINGDOM. UNDERSTANDING WE ARE NOT JUST FLYING SOLO. THAT WE ARE CONNECTED, SHOULD CONVINCE US TO WALK YOUR FAITH OUT IN FRONT OF EVERYONE. EACH OF US IS A TEMPLE WHERE CHRIST LIVES. MAKING US PART OF THE BODY OF CHRIST AS INDIVIDUALS. WHILE ALSO WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE TO THE REST OF THE BODY. SO THE TWO THINGS I WOULD TAKE IN IS CHIST IS COMING TO TAKE US HOME. THATS REAL GREAT NEWS! LASTLY BE ACTIVE IN KINGDOM BUILDING. 

    THAT IS WHERE I WILL LEAVE THIS POST FOR NOW. I WILL BE BACK SOON. I WANT TO THANK YOU ALL FOR STOPPING BY AGAIN TO READ MY WORDS. GRATEFUL DOES NOT SEEM ENOUGH. BE SAFE GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                    PRAYER 

     

                                                                LORDS PRAYER 

    Today we will Look at the second half of the phrases that we connect. Todays phrase *THY WILL BE DONE*  This will dove tale into the next two phases. Yet there’s things here we can tap into. We are expressing our calling our purpose by acknowledging that GODS Will is being accomplished by our actions. We are stating that we are KINGDOM BUILDERS. This is done by using our gifts. Our gifts will tie directly into our purpose. When our purpose is in alignment with GODS Will then amazing things come to pass. Often the Fruit of the Spirit will be what empowers our gifts. As we use our gift Then we begin to prefect our talent. When this is accomplished it becomes first nature. This is what GOD calls mastering our gift. Then GOD will give us more opportunities to serve It will also mean HE will give you another gift. Actually we probably have several gifts. As in any forums where you have multi talents we are more comfortable with one than others. Either way we will be given a new gift or empower one of your other gifts (talents) it’s due to your faithfulness to do HIS will until HE comes. We see this principle in the parable of the Talents. So we are in agreement with GOD that I/You /we will be found busy when HE does come.  If we expect HIM to come today we will most definitely be doing HIS WILL. Why cause we don’t want to be found just hearing. We want to be found KINGDOM BUILDING. Our most coveted desire should be found a * GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT * when HE returns. 
    The next time I return we will connect the dots when we marry the last two phrases to the next phase. Until I get back May our LORD find Favor with you. I once again thank you for taking a few minutes of your busy day to visit here. Godspeed Blessings One Love PD

                                                                    PRAYER 

     

                                                           THE LORDS PRAYER. 

    TODAY WE WILL LOOK AT THE THIRD PART OF CONNECTING PHRASE. BUT FIRST LETS QUICKLY REVIEW. THE FIRST THING TO MEDITATE ON OUR FATHER. SAME FATHER AS JESUS. YES THINK ON THAT. *WHO ART IN HEAVEN HOLY BE THY NAME* SO OUR PRAYER STARTS OFF PRAYING TO OUR FATHER. THEN WE PRAISE HIM FOR HIS HOLINESS AND ESPECIALLY THE THINGS HE HAS DONE FOR US. DOESN’T MATTER IF ITS RESENT OF IN THE PAST. THE WORD SAYS GOD INHABITANTS THE PRAISES OF HIS PEOPLE. ITS LIKE A SWEET AROMA RISING UP TO THE THRONE ROOM. THIS WILL SOMEHOW GOD  RESPONDS DIFFERENTLY  ATTENTION WHEN WE GIVE PRAISE. 

    THY KINGDOM COME YOUR WILL BE DONE. WE ARE PETITIONING THE LORD TO EMPOWER US TO DO HIS WILL. THE EYES N EARS TO FUNCTION. WE ARE ALSO STATING WE WANT TO BE ACTIVE IN THE KINGDOM. 

    TODAY PHRASE TYING DOING HIS WILL. *ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN*NOW WE ARE RECOGNIZING THAT GOD WORKS WITH THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH LOCAL AND US AS INDIVIDUALS TO ACCOMPLISH HIS WILL. MORE IMPORTANTLY WE ARE SAYING WE KNOW THAT EVERYTHING IN HEAVEN IS DONE PRECISELY THE WAY ITS SUPPOSED. THE WORD SAYS JESUS WANTS FOR NOTHING. MEANING THE ANGELS THAT MINISTER TO HIM KNOW WHAT HE WANTS AS HE WANTS IT. THIS SPEAKS OF HARMONY ALONG WITH THE SUPPLY OF NEEDS. TO USE TO FUNCTION IN THE KINGDOM WE MUST BE IN HARMONY WITH THE SPIRIT AS HE SUPPLIES MOST OF OUR NEEDS. HOWEVER IT ALSO MEANS THAT WE MAY RECEIVE INPUT FROM OTHER BELIEVERS. SEEING THEY ARE PART OF THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH, THAT WAS IN HARMONY WITH GOD AND SHOWED UP FOR THE DEVINE APPOINTMENTS. THEN THERES THE OCCASIONAL ANGELS THAT HAVE MINISTERED TO US. OFTEN WE NEVER KNOW OR SEE THEM. HOWEVER WE WILL SEE WHAT THEY DID. BUT THE PHRASE SAYS ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. HOW DOES THAT WORK IN A FALLEN WORLD? ISN’T GODS WILL EVERYONE BE SAVED. NO ITS HIS DESIRE. THAT DOES NOT MEAN EVERYONE WILL NOT BE ACCOUNTABLE. THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF THAT NATURE TEACHES US THERES A GOD. SO NO ONE IS WITHOUT EXCUSE. YET WE MUST DO OUR PART TO REACH OTHERS FOR CHRIST. THATS DONE IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS. WE CAN WALK OUR FAITH OUT IN FRONT OF ALL. WE FIND THOSE WHO GOD HAS US SPEAK TO. ALSO WE ARE TO MAKE DISCIPLES OUT OF MANKIND. THIS HAPPENS AFTER SALVATION. SO WE MAY BE A MENTOR A CLOSE FRIEND. WE PRAY FOR OTHERS. WE WILL SEE THAT IN A FUTURE POSTS ON THIS TPOIC. THE TRADITIONAL THINGS NO FOR TRADITION PURPOSE. MUCH LIKE THE LORDS PRAYER AS WE LEARNED ITS NOT TO BE REPEATED ITS A OUTLINE OR A FORMAT FOR US TO GET THE BEST FROM PRAYER.  

    THIS DOESN’T MEAN YOU HAVE TO USE THIS FORMAT TO GET YOUR PRAYERS ANSWERED. OBVIOUSLY THERE PRAYERS THAT WE DONT HAVE TIME TO USE A FORMAT. ACTUALLY THE BIBLE SAYS THERE ARE TIMES WE CANT PRAY AND THE HOLY SPIRIT UNDERSTANDS OUR GROANS.  THEN THERE ARE TIMES WE ARE IN A CONDITION THAT WE JUST NEED TO CRY OUT. YET WHEN WE HAVE OUR QUIET PERSONAL TIME WITH THE LORD WE CAN USE THIS GUIDELINES. ANOTHER THING IV’E DONE IS TO JOURNAL MY PRAYER LIFE AND THE TIMES GOD INTERVENED ON MY BEHALF. THIS IS A WONDERFUL TOOL TO USE TO SHOW GOD ANSWERS PRAYER. IT ALSO GIVES US HISTORY THAT WE WILL FORGET THE SPECIFICS. MY DAD WAS A PRAYER WARRIOR. HE WOULD GO IN A SECOND TO HIS PRAYER ROOM IF HE FELT GOD WAS ENCOURAGING HIM TO COME. HE WOULD SPEND HOURS IN THE DAY PRAYING. I TOLD HIM HE SHOULD KEEP A PRAYER JOURNAL. HE BEING OLD SCHOOL WAS RESISTANT. HE SAID WHY I KNOW GOD ANSWERS MY PRAYERS. I ASKED CAN YOU TELL ME A PRAYER HE ANSWERED LAST YEAR AT THIS TIME THAT SAID HOWEVER I CONVINCED HIM TO KEEP A JOURNAL FOR THREE MONTHS. HE DID AND CAME BACK AND REMARKED HE DIDN’T REALIZE THE AMOUNT OF PRAYERS GOD ANSWERED. HE KEPT A JOURNAL RITE UP TILL THE LAST TWO WEEKS OF LIFE. 

    THERE IS THE MEETING FOR SERVICES WHERE WE ARE MINISTERED TO AND WE MAY MINISTER TO OTHERS TAKING OF COMMUNION. BAPTISM IS ANOTHER WAY WE ARE USING TO BUILD THE KINGDOM. I ALWAYS TOLD THOSE WHO I’D BAPTIZE TO INVITE THEIR NONBELIEVER FRIENDS. I WOULD EXPLAIN WHY WE BAPTIZE AND THEN EXPLAIN HOW TO GET TO THAT PLACE YOUR BAPTISM COUNTS. ANOTHER WORDS I WOULD PREACH THE GOSPEL. MAKING THEM ACCOUNTABLE. MANY THINK EVANGELISM IS THE ACT OF BRINGING SOMEONE TO CHRIST. THE REALITY IS THERES FOUR COMPONENTS TO EVANGELISM. 1) FIRST PLANT THE SEED. THAT WHAT FARMERS DO RIGHT. 2) SECOND WATER THE SEED. THATS PRAYER. FARMERS PLANT AND DEPEND ON WATER SOMEHOW TO GET TO THEIR CROPS. SO PRAY FOR A PERSON YOU KNOW THATS BEEN GIVEN THE GOOD NEWS THEN AGAIN AS PART OF THE UNIVERSAL. CHURCH YOU CAN PRAY FOR THOSE WE DO NOT KNOW WHO NEED THE LORD. MEANING YOUR PART OF SOMEONE’S SALVATION IN PARTS UNKNOWN. 3) NURTURE THE SEED. THAT IS SIMPLY WALKING YOU FAITH OUT KEEPING THE GROUND FERTILE. 4) HARVEST. BRINGING SOMEONE TO A SAVING KNOWLEDGE. WHEN IT GETS TO THE TIME FOR EACH CROP TO BE HARVESTED THE FARMER DOES. THEN THERE ARE TIMES LIKELY FOR THE MOST PART A PERSON WHO HAS THE GIFT OF EVANGELISM DO ALL FOUR IN 20-30 MINUTES. I GUESS WHAT I’M SAYING IS WE ALL WANT TO BE FOUND DOING SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE IN THE KINGDOM WHEN OUR LORD RETURNS. SO WE ARE IN THESE PHASES VERSE GIVING GOD THE CONCERT TO WORK ON YOU TILL HE CAN WORK WITH YOU. BETTER SAID TILL WE CAN WORK WITH HIM. 

    THERES MUCH I AM SURE I MISSED THAT YOU FROM YOUR UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR LORD MAY EXPERIENCE THINGS DIFFERENTLY. GOD IS NOT RESTRICTED TO COOKIE CUTTER PEOPLE. HE IS ABLE TO MEET ANYONE ANYTIME ANYWHERE NOTHING STOPS HIM FROM MEETING US ON GROUND WE EACH KNOW INTIMATELY. 

    I WILL BE BACK IN A FRW DAYS. I WANT TO EXPEND MY GREAT APPRECIATION FOR YOUR TIME. UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN. GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                 PRAYER 

     

                                                        THE LORDS PRAYER 

     

    Today we will look at the phrase *GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAIKY BREAD* We all need physical bread. What Jesus was telling us here is to now pray for Providence. We are asking GOD to make sure or to provide food for our table. However HE is also saying we need to take more of HIM. First this means we should be in our word. After all John 1:1 would suggest that you’re holding in the Bible GOD Himself This is much like the Ark Of The Covenant. Was GOD inside there yes but only in HIS ability to be everywhere. The ARK represented GOD is with us. The Bible tells us this even through we are asking to make sure we and ours have food. Yet the word says *SEEK YE FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND ALL THESE THINGS WILL BE ADDED TO YOU. HE stating that we also need SPIRITUAL FOOD Mana from Heaven. He does not want us to forget to feed the Spiritual man. When we are asking for food we are also asking I need my finances to by the food Therefore I need to work. So we are asking Him to provide this job. Yet I need to get there. This is accomplished in many ways ranging from walking to bike bus auto. See by asking for the one thing GOD is adding the things we need to provide food. So before we go out the door spend sometime with the LORD filling ourselves with HIS HOLY SPIRIT. Remembering HE WILL GUIDE OUR PATH.  

    i will be back soon. I do thank you all for dropping in today. May the LORD fill you with Himself. Favor Grace Mercy May they be your constant companion and LOVE will be your consistent playmate. Until we meet again. GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                   PRAYER 

     

                                                           THE LORDS PRAYER 

    TODAY WE WILL LOOK AT THE PHRASE FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASESS AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASSES AGAINST US. THERES MUCH TO CONSIDER. FIRST TRESPASSES IS A NICE WORD FOR SIN. ALSO REMEMBER WHEN THIS WAS SPOKE. IT WAS UNDER THE LAW. NOT UNDER THE DISPENSATION OF GRACE. 

    SO AFTER ALL THE ABOVE WE/THEY WERE TOLD THEY MUST FORGIVE TO BE FORGIVEN. THIS WAS DONE SO GOD COULD DEAL WITH EACH HEART. IF YOUR TOTALLY FORGIVING. THEN GOD WILL LOOK UPON YOUR PRAYER FAVORABLY. IM NOT POSITIVE THAT GOD WOULD NOT HEAR YOUR PRAYES OF FORGIVENESS. WHICH IS IMPORTANT AS WE ARE APPROACHING THE ALMIGHTY. HE WILL BE DOING THE FORGIVING. YET IF YOUR HEART IS NOT OPEN DO FORGIVENESS THIS IN MY HUMBLE OPINION WOULD BE THE THINGS ASKED FOR UNDER THE LAW MAY BE LESS OF A BLESSING MAYBE IT HINDERS THE ANSWERS TO YOUR PRAYERS. HOWEVER IT DOES SEEM TO BE A CHANGE  AS UNDER THE LAW THE SACRIFICIAL SYSTEM WAS BASED PREDOMINANTLY ON OBEDIENCE. WHAT IS BEING INTRODUCED IS THE SET UP FOR THE DISPENSATION OF GRACE OR THE CHURCH AGE. HES SAYING IT IS A HEART CONDITION THAT GODS INTERESTED IN AS PART OF THE RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH GOD  INTURN THAT WILL INFLUENCE YOUR PRAYERS  GOOD STANDING GOOD RESULTS  NOT SO GOOD STANDING NOT  THE BEST RESULTS 

    THIS WOULD BE TOTALLY DIFFERENT IN OUR AGE OF GRACE. WHAT JRSUS WAS DOING IS SUBTLY MOVING THE GOAL POSTS. SETTING THINGS UP TO TRANSITION FROM THE LAW TO GRACE. AS WE WOULD SEE THIS PRAYER. IT IS NOT SO MUCH FORGIVE MY SINS,FOR AS HIS CHILD THROUGH CHRIST ALL SINS ARE FORGIVEN. I KNOW THE ERSE IN PHILIPPINES  * IF YOU ARE FAITHFUL TO CONFESS YOUR SINS YOU WILL BE FORGIVEN.*. THIS VERSE TO ME LOOKING AT IT FROM A EVANGELICAL PROSPECTIVE IT IS A VERSE THAT TIES IN WITH SALVATION. ACTUALLY I DO NOT SEE HOW TO READ IT IN ANOTHER WAY. ONCE JESUS FORGIVES US OR BETTER PUT WE RECEIVE HIS FORGIVENESS WE ARE SEALED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. ASKING FORGIVENESS AFTER SALVATION IS LITERALLY ASKING JESUS TO FORGIVE YOU FOR SOMETHING HES ALREADY DONE. IF YOU FORGIVE YOUR CHILD AND ASSURE THEM YOUVE FORGIVEN THEM AND THE NEXT DAY THEY COME BACK N ASK AGAIN. WHAT DO YOU SAY MY CHILD I HAVE. ALREADY FORGIVEN YOU FOR THAT. THEN AGAIN N AGAIN YOUR CHILD ASKS THE FORGIVENESS OVER N OVER. IT MAKES NO SENSE. THEN WHY WOULD I CONE INTO THE THRONE ROOM ASKING FORGIVENESS FROM CHRIST. HE WILL REMIND YOU THAT ITS BEEN PAID IN FULL. SEE HOW THAT THEOLOGY DOES NOT TRANSLATE WELL. HOWEVER THE SECOND PART OF THE PHRASE AS WE FORGIVE OTHERS. THIS IS SPEAKING TO THE HEART. IF JESUS FORGAVE YOU THEN YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FORGIVE THEM. IT SHOULD BECOME EASY AUTOMATIC WITHOUT THINKING. IT IS JUST DONE. ALSO IF JESUS FORGAVE THEM FOR SINNING. THEN WHY CAN’T. We? THE SAME SPIRIT LIVES IN US THAT LIVED IN CHRIST. SO THIS IS A WARNING FOR US OR PERHAPS A GUT CHECK ON YOUR RELATIONSHIP IN WITH N THROUGH JESUS. AS IF YOUR NOT RIGHT IN THE LORD IT WILL REFLECT IN YOUR PRAYERS. WHERE YOUR HEART IS SO ARE YOU. IF YOUR HEART IS RIGHT FORGIVENESS IS A GIVEN. BEING CLOSE TO GODS CENTER IS GREAT. BEING OUTSIDE OF HIS CENTER MAYBE NOT SO GREAT.

    HOWEVER WHEN WE SIN WE SHOULD FEEL BAD NOT GUILTY BUT UNEASY. SO WE GO TO THE LORD AND SAY I KNOW I AM WRONG HERE. I ASK YOU TO EMPOWER ME TO  NO LONGER SIN AGAINST YOU AS IT IS EFFECTING OUR RELATIONSHIP. TELL HIM I APOLOGIZE FOR PUTTING YOU ON THE CROSS WITH THAT SIN. HELP ME TO BECOME STRONG IN MY WEAKNESSES. AGREE IM WRONG AND REESTABLISH YOUR MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH OUR LORD.

     

    THIS CONCLUDES THIS PART OF THE LORDS PRAYER. I HOPE IBDID NOT LOOSE YOU BUT RATHER GAVE YOU A DIFFERENT WAY TO SEE THINGS. INSPIRE YOU TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. IDK WHEN I WILL BE BACK. UNTIL THEN YOUR THE GREATEST FAMILY EVER. GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                   PRAYER 

     

                                                         THE LORDS PRAYER 

    Today as we almost have completed our study on the LORDS PRAYER will look at the next phrase in the prayer. LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION. As we read this prayer all at once we miss the nuances hidden within the prayer. Like this phrase. Taken as a phrase at face value it doesn’t seem to make since. One would think the Holy Spirit would lead us away from temptation. Well there’s confirmation in the BIBLE that this could be a liget request, for once JESUS Baptisten the HOLY SPIRIT lead JESUS into the temptation. Just a side note many believe that the temptation spoken of was the only time CHRIST was tempted. They are wrong. JESUS had to be perfect to pay our debt, hence HE was tempted more than any of us could imagine. So what is JESUS saying?  The person praying would be recognizing that temptation is right round the corner. Knowing it’s out there one asks not to ne tempted. Without temptation there is no sin. Remember they are under THE LAW Eternal Security isn’t even a concept much less available under TGE LAW So not sinning is a pretty big thing. Unlike us THE CHURCH yhat has Eternal Security built in. They would have to sacrifice for those sins before they would die. As dying in your sins is no different then those who reject CHRIST. Destination HEAVEN isn’t there. This is why one asks not to be lead but rather miss it or empower me to overcome temptation. Another picture here is that most often temptation has a process. First trials will come also tribulations will come Either one of them can bring you to a place of temptation. What you do with that temptation will show where you stand relationship wise with THE LORD. Therefore one is praying that both types of temptation ( Spontaneous and Process) will be overcome if presented. I’m sure that most temptation is a product of our own doing. Kinda like sowing and reaping. These types of temptations take place over time. Also the lack of knowledge is hugely a serious problem as if you don’t know how the  game is played. Then your doomed to being a victim of your circumstances rather then victory over them. Lack of Faith will always be a hindrance without it you can not function well in the kingdom nor please GOD. As one prays about temptation ask for SPIRITUAL EYES to help you be aware of your surroundings. Plus for Faith to overcome anything thrown at us. Lastly knowledge for with knowledge when applied is Wisdom. However there’s no short cuts in this thing. One has to do their part for GOD to give you what you need to be Victorious. So study to see yourself approved. Meaning you can defend yourself on where you stand on any topic that is put forth. 

    There is likely things you may see that I missed in this phrase however we have a 30,000 foot view of this phrase. As always I must give thanks to all of the eyes that has read this. I’m truly blest. Until I return GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                  PRAYER 

     

                                                          THE LORDS PRAYER 

     

    WE ARE ALMOST DONE WITH THIS PART OF PRAYER. TODAY WE POST LIKLY THE NEXT TO LAST POST ON THE LORDS PRAYER. TODAY WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT THE NEXT PHRASE. IT CERTAINLY CAN BE CONNECTED TO THE PHRASE BEFORE, YET AT THE SAME TIME IT CAN STAND ALONE WITH IT’S OWN MARITS. DELIVER US FROM EVIL. THE PHASE AT ONE TIME READ THE EVIL ONE. EITHER WAY BEING DELIVERED FROM THE WAGES THAT EVIL WILL BRING. AFTER ASKING DO NOT LEAD US TEMPTATION WE ARE NOW VOICING THE REALITY THAT WE WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE WICKEDNESS OF THIS WORLD. IT IS WHAT WE DO. WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH A FALLEN WORLD. SO FIRST WE ARE SAYING LORD * IF I MUST FACE THE EVIL OUT THERE GIVE ME THE STRENGTH NOT TO FALL INTO TEMPTATION, YET SURLY LORD IF AND  WHEN I DO COME RESCUE ME*  ALSO WE ARE TELLING HIM WE CAN NOT FACE OFF WITH THE POWERS OF DARKNESS WITHOUT HIS PROVIDENCE. HOWEVER TO BE HONEST WITH OURSELVES MOST OF OUR TEMPTATIONS COME FROM THE SEEDS WE PLANTED,OR A LACK OF UNDERSTANDING IGNORANCE WHICH IS NO! POLICY ARROGANCE OR JUST RIGHT DISOBEDIENCE. HOWEVER WE MAY TARY TO LONG IN PLACES OF TEMPTATION WE KNOW HE WILL COME TO GET US. REMEMBERING HE DAID * I WILL NEVER LEAVE OR FORSKE YOU* ALSO WE SEE THIS AS AN OLD TESTAMENT TRUTH AS WELL. WE NEED NOT LOOK ANY FURTHER THEN THE 23 PSALM. WHERE HE LEAVES THE 99 TO FIND THE LOST ONE. THERES NO LENGTH WHERE HE WILL NOT GO TO RESCUE US. INCLUDING THE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH. THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL GLANCE INTO THE NEAR FUTURE, WHERE JESUS WOULD EVEN GO AS FAR AS DEATH FOR US TO RESCUE REDEEM US. DO WE NEED TO ASK FOR THIS? NO. HOWEVER ITS THERE FOR US TO CONSIDER. I TRY TO REMEMBER TO ASK TO WALK IN HIS POWER. NOW TODAY IN THE AGE OF GRACE WE WILL NEED TO ONE DAY ASK CHRIST TO SAVE OUR SOULS. HE WILL BE ABLE TO DO IT FOR HE PAID IN FULL OUR DEBT. ETERNAL SECURITY IS OURS TO HAVE. SOMETHING THE OT SAINTS COULD ONLY LOOK TO BUT DIDNT HAVE. THEY HAD THEIR TYPE OF ATONEMENT. WE HAVE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE IN CHRIST. IF WE ARE TRUE BIBLICAL CHRISTIANS THEN THERE WAS A TIME WHEN OUR SINFUL WORLD,WAYS WILL COLIDE WITH THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. IT WILL,WOULD BE THE TIME YOU WERE DELIVERED COMPLETELY. HOWEVER ON A DAILY BASES ONE SHOULD ASK FOR THE POWER TO BE VICTORIOUS IN ALL BATTLES

    I HAVE A BUSY FEW DAYS. IM NOT SURE HOW LONG I WILL BE GONE. WHEN I RETURN I WILL ATTEMPT TO FINISH THE LORDS PRAYER. AT THAT TIME I WILL INTRODUCE THE NEXT TOPIC ON PRAYER WE WILL BE LOOKING AT. UNTIL I RETURN MAY OUR LORD FIND FAVOR AS YOUR COMPANION. THANK YOU AS ALWAYS FOR SHARING YOUR PRECIOUS TIME HERE. GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                    PRAYER 

     

                                                           THE LORDS PRAYER 

    TODAY WE WILL LOOK AT THE LAST PHRASE IN THE LORDS PRAYER. *FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM THE POWER AND THE GLORY FOREVER* WHAT WE ARE SAYING HERE OR JESUS  WAS SPEAKING OF THE FATHER. WE WOULD TODAY BE SPEAKING TO CHRIST. REMEMBER WHEN HE COMPLETED HIS ASSIGNMENT TO ENABLE US TO COME TO SALVATION. HE MADE THIS STATEMENT. *ALL POWER IS GIVEN ME IN HEAVEN AND EARTH* IMHO JESUS WOULD BE THE ONE WE WOULD SEE AS THE GO TO PERSON. WE WOULD DRAW THE CONCLUSION FROM THIS PHRASE THAT GOD OWNS THE KINGDOM IN WHICH HE’D CALL US TOO SERVE IN. YET THE KINGDOM IN MATHEW STATES ITS NOT A PLACE BUT A PERSON.

                                                                   PRAYER 

     

                                               JESUS EXAMPLES AND REASONS 

     

    PRAYER AND FASTING GO HAND AND HAND. I WILL GO INTO REASONS AND TYPES OF FASTING ANOTHER TIME. HOWEVER LETS TAKE A LOOK AT A FEW PLACES WHERE JESUS SPOKE OF FASTING. 

    MATTHEW 6:16-18       

    NOTICE WHERE THIS SHOWS UP RIGHT AFTER THE LORDS PRAYER. ITS PRETTY CLEAR HE WANTS US TO MAKE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE TWO. JESUS GIVES US SOME GUIDELINES ON HOW TO PRESENT YOURSELF TO OTHERS WHEN FASTING. HE REMINDS US TO NOT GET CAUGHT UP IN THE SHOW BUT RATHER KEEP IT PRIVATE. MAKE SURE ITS TO HEAR FROM GOD NOT TO LET OTHERS KNOW HOW RIGHTEOUS YOU THINK YOU ARE. HE REMINDS US IMAGE IS IMPORTANT. ITS LIKE WHEN YOUR HUMBLE AND IT TRULY IS TO SEEK GODS FACE THATS HONORABLE AND BRINGS GLORY TO OUR FATHER. NOT US GETTING THE GLORY. JESUS SAYS FAST THE RIGHT WAY AND REASON OUR FATHER WILL DRAW CLOSE TO OUR PRAYERS. 

    HERES HOW FASTING WORKS. JUST BECAUSE ITS DIRECTLY AFTER THE LORDS PRAYER ISN’T HIM SAYING WE FAST EVERY TIME  WE DO PRAY. HOWEVER THERE IS A PROCESS TO GET THERE AND FUTHER. SO I HAVE SOMETHING SERIOUS TO ME I NEED AN ANSWER TO. I BEGIN TO PRAY. IF I FEEL I NEED MORE PRAYER I WOULD RECRUIT MAYBE INTERCESSION PRAYER. NOW YOU HAVE TWO OR MORE PRAYING FOR YOUR NEED. EVENTUALLY YOU MAY NEED TO FAST. HERES SOMETHING IMPORTANT ABOUT FASTING. THE WORD SAYS ITS LIKE A SWEET AROMA RISES UP INTO THE THRONE ROOM. THAT IS WHAT DRAWS GOD TO OUR PRAYER. HE KNOWS THAT YOU KNOW THAT FASTING IS AN ARROW IN YOUR QUIVER. HE KNOWS YOU/WE KNOW THIS IS IMPORTANT TO US. SO I GOT PEOPLE PRAYING WITH ME AND I’M FASTING. NOW IF IN A GIVEN TIME YOU MAY ALSO RECRUIT OTHERS TO FAST WITH YOU. IMAGINE HOW OUR FATHER FEELS BOUT THAT. THINK ABOUT IT THE FACT IS IF ONE PERSON FASTS AND NOW OTHERS HAVE JOINED YOU. THIS SHOWS FAITHFULNESS WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT PLEASES HIM.  ALWAYS BE SURE IF YOU CHOOSE TO FAST YOUR BODY CAN HANDLE IT. ANOTHER WORDS PICK A TIME FRAME THAT IS CONDUCIVE TO RISK REWARD. AS LONG AS YOU HAVE A REASON TO FAST. NOT FAST OIT OF OBEDIENCE. DOES ANY OF THIS GUARANTEE YOU WILL GET YOUR ANSWER. YES AND NO.  YES YOUR PRAYER WILL BE ANSWERED YES NO WAIT. NOW WILL YOU GET THE ANSWER YOU WANT POSSIBLY ODDS ARE BETTER IF ITS GODS PURPOSE FOR YOU. YET YOU MAY NOT GET THE ANSWER YOU THOUGHT OR DESIRED. THAT DOES MEAN THE ANSWER YOU GOT IS THE BEST RIGHT ANSWER FOR YOU AT THAT TIME. 

    THIS CONCLUDES OUR FIRST STEP INTO FASTING AND PRAYER FOR TODAY. I WILL HAVE MORE ON FASTING AND MUCH MORE ON PRAYER. TY FOR STOPPING BY I HOPE YOU ARE RECEIVING SOMETHING FROM THESES TEACHINGS. MORE LIKELY IT WILL BE CONFORMATION RATHER THEN INSPIRATION. UNTIL I RETURN GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                  PRAYER 

                                              JESUS EXAMPLE AND REASONS 

     

    WE ARE GOING TO TAKE A LOOK AT SEVERAL TIMES THAT CHRIST FASTED AND ALWAYS PRAYED. THE SCRIPTURES I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU ARE VERY FAMILIAR TO YOU. MATTHEW 4:1/11. THIS IS THE THREE TEMPTATIONS OF JESUS. HE WAS LEAD BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO BE TEMPTED BY THE enemy. BEFORE I GET TO THE FASTING ALWAYS THOUGHT IT ODD THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WOULD LEAD US INTO NOT AWAY FROM. I GUESS AS I PEN THIS I FEEL WE DONT HAVE TO BE LEAD INTO TEMPTATION. WE FIND THAT ON OUR OWN. HOWEVER JESUS BEING SINLESS WANTED TO SHOW US HOW TO DEAL WITH THE enemy AND TEMPTATION. FIRST THING WE CAN LEARN FROM JESUS WAS TO BE PREPARED. JUST AS IN THE LORDS PRAYER WE ASK TO DELIVER US FROM TEMPTATION. ANOTHER WORDS MUCH LIKE CHRIST WE KNOW TEMPTATION IS OUT THERE BUT DO NOT PREPARE. HOW SO? WE NEVER PRAY TO ASK TO EMPOWER US FOR ANY ENCOUNTER IF IT SHOWS UP. JESUS WENT AS FAR AS FASTED TO DO BATTLE WITH THE enemy. SO JESUS IS SHOWING US THAT THERE ARE TIMES WE MAY HAVE TO FAST AND PRAY FOR OUR OWN SPIRITUAL BATTLES. 

    IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS I WILL BE BACK TO SPEAK MORE ON FASTING N PRAYER. I WILL LEAVE YOU A PREVIEW BY GIVING YOU THE VERSES WE WILL LOOK AT IN THE NEXT FEW POSTS. 

    MATTHEW 14;19. MATTHEW 15:36. JOHN 11: 41/43. IF YOU READ THESE YOU WILL KNOW WHERE WE WILL LEARN OR CONFIRM THE TOPIC AND HOW IT APPLIES TO OUR TIMES. 

    UNTIL I RETURN THANK YOU FOR STOPPING IN AND SPENDING YOUR TIME WITH ME. GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                 JESUS EXAMPLE AND REASONS 

     

    TODAY WE WILL LOOK AT A FAMILIAR THEME IN THE WAY JESUS DEALT OR EMBRACED WHAT THE FATHER WAS SHOWING HIM. THIS IS IMPORTANT TO US AS HE IS ALWAYS EITHER SHOWING OR TRYING TO SHOW US THINGS. HE DOES NOT REVEAL THINGS TO US UNLESS HE WANTS US TO JOIN HIM IN THE ACTIVITY OF GOD. ANOTHER WORDS BE A MINISTERING BODY. THE SCRIPTURES I GAVE YOU ARE ALL TO FAMILIAR TO US THEY WERE MIRACLES. OFTEN WE WOULD NOT BE PRIVY TO IT YET THERE ARE TIMES WE SEE JESUS FASTING AND PRAYING. WE WOULD ABSOLUTELY KNOW HE PRAYED FOR EVERYTHING. THERE ARE TIMES WE WOULD SEE HIM FAST BEFORE A MIRACLE OR AFTER BATTLING THE FORCES OF DARKNESS. WHEN HED PRAY HE DID IT TO SHOW EVERYONE THE DIRECT LINE TO THE FATHER. THIS TO IS IMPORTANT FOR WE HAVE THAT SAME CONNECTION. WE JUST DO NOT USE IT NEARLY AS PROFICIENT AS CHRIST DID. WHY FAST THROUGH. WELL IT WAS CALLING UPON GOD TO ALLOW US TO BE RECEPTIVE TO POURING IN MORE POWER TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT LIES AHEAD. FASTING IS PREDOMINANTLY A SYMBOLIC JRSTER STATING WE ARE TRUSTING GOD TO GET US THROUGH THE FAST. THE THING IS VERY VERY FEW FAST A TIME FRAME THAT WILL CAUSE ANY REAL DISCOMFORT. YET THE REASON IS THE REAL KEY. I WILL FIND MY RESEARCH ON FASTING AND GIVE US MORE INSIGHT INTO FASTING. IS IT OK TO FAST FROM OBEDIENCE PERSPECTIVE? YES AS IT WILL CREAT A HABIT THAT WHEN NEEDED WILL AID YOU RATHER THEN HINDER US AS WE ARE EXPERIENCING THROUGH FASTING THINGS WE NEVER REALLY DELT WITH. HOWEVER THE BEST REASON IS TO OPEN UP A CONDUIT TO THE THRONE ITSELF NOT JUST THE THRONE ROOM.  

    JESUS ALSO WANTED TO SHOW US THE NEED OF PRAYER AND OFTEN HOW TO PRAY. THIS HAS BEEN PASSED DOWN THROUGH THE GENERATIONS OF THE CHURCH. HOWEVER IN MY HUMBLE OPINION WE LACK MUCH OF WHAT THE EARLY CHURCH EXPERIENCED AND ACCOMPLISHED. REMEMBER WHEN PRAYING FOR YOUR NEEDS OR THINGS GOD PUT ON YOUR HEART. KEEP YOUR EYES OPENED TO SEE WHERE N WHEN GODS REVEALING. ALSO TAKE IN CONSIDERATION THAT FASTING MAY BE A VALID OPTION TO PUT IN ONES QUIVER. WHEN FASTING BECOMES FIRST NATURE TO YOU THEN YOUR FASTING WILL TAKE ON A DEEPER SIGNIFICANCE. AS FASTING WILL OCCURE WHEN YOU ARE DEPENDING TOTALLY ON GOD TO REVEAL HIS TRUTH TO YOU. 

    THIS IS WHERE I WILL END THE TEACHING ON FASTING AND PRAYER. THE NEXT TIME I GET BACK HERE READ LUKE 9:28/31 THIS IS WHERE OUR NEXT LESSON WILL COME FROM. AS ALWAYS I APPRECIATE YOU ALL FOR DROPP IN WHILE I WAS GONE. UNTIL I RETURN GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                  PRAYER

                                                  JESUS EXAMPLES AND REASONS 

     

    TODAYS SCRIPTURE LUKE 9:28/31

     

    As we look at these scriptures a few things pop out to me. The one big thing we must commit to memory is when Jesus came from Heaven to Earth he left his deity behind. Another words he gave up his ability to be all knowing all present ect. He truly was a man of GOD who happened to be the Son of GOD. Yet he had the same emotions as we do. He being within two weeks of his death it would have to way heavy on him. It would be terribly stressful, as it would with anyone. Except he’s known how he would die and when by the age of twelve. Imagine knowing your expiration date for over 20 years. That kind of pressure is unimaginable. The thing is Jesus came as a man so we can identify with him. We know there’s nothing we haven’t gone through that Christ also experienced., except the act of sin. It’s how he handled it that’s different.  His natural instinct was to seek out his/our Father. We tend to go into self preservation mode and we try to fix it on our own. We do exactly what we shouldn’t by leaning on our own understanding. Which in turn stresses us out even more. It’s usually  when we hit the panic point we go to GOD for guidance See self gets in the way for a GODLY answers. Even when we see GOD does step in when asked. We still have this stigma that we need to be the fixer.

    Here’s a few things that I noticed about this event. Some really good things  but a few things not so good. First the not so good.  Jesus took his closest Apostels with him. Here’s the thing that’s disheartening. When they saw Moses n Elijah they wanted to build a tabernacle for all three. It literally took the Father to intervene and refocus them. His words tells them that Jesus is His Son. It also says GODS pleased with Jesus. Not just for what Jesus has done but is yet to come. The      crucifixion yet to come. They seem to not grasp that concept. They also because of their agenda were not intimately as connected as they should have been. What was good is they saw Jesus in such splendor as the glory of GOD settled upon Jesus. Actually Jesus was trying to get them to see the magnitude of the moment. They don’t seem to be getting it.  Unfortunately this will be an ongoing trend with them. So Jesus prayer was to give him the encouragement not courage. That was never a factor with Christ.  One can only imagine what Jesus felt at this time. What we should learn is do nothing without bring oneself in alignment with the LORD, through prayer meditation fasting. Also we have a savior that can identify with our needs.and the power to infuse within us the strength to keep moving forward. Therefore we should develop the habit of keeping in line with our LORD and do whatever it takes to accomplish our endeavors  

    Now what I’m about to share is total speculation. Howbeit if you will follow my thought process you may see at least the possibility of what I’m bout to share. We see Jesus countenance was as if he was glowing. That imho was the true  way in which Jesus looks in his natural form in Heaven. Now let’s travel back in time when Moses was in the presence of GOD in all his Glory. When Moses came down from the mountain he looked much like Jesus did on the Mt of Transfiguration. Now follow my thoughts here. What was Moses experience? Is it not possible GOD showed what the law was pointing to. Remember the Bible says the Old Testament Prophets longed/desired to see/experience what we have in our LORD. What is the possibility that Moses was transported into the future actually to this very day that Moses and Elijah being on the Mt with Christ and there roll is giving the LORD the confidence to go forth. How do you think that would super encourage Moses. Now fast forward to the day in question. Now as Jesus traveled time and space to show Moses how important he was in his own time but 4000 years in the future. Now Moses would transcend from Heaven to earth to meet Jesus just as he saw 4000 years ago. What do we notice is that Jesus and Moses had the same physical change. Perhaps both were aware they’d both need each other. So in a way we can’t understand the event although were 4000 years apart was the same event at the same time. I know time travel.  Not exactly perhaps it’s more of a dimension shift or intersection of the two different realms. Heavenly and Earthy. This would give us a possible answer to why they both looked the same with GODS glory upon them. Again this is my thoughts on this event/events.

    I will end with this for today. I’d be curious what you think of this possibly? Meanwhile I am thankful for your joining me here today. I will be back in a few days. Until then GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                PRAYER

     

                                                JESUS EXAMPLE AND REASON    

     

    TODAYS SCRIPTURE LUKE 22:41/43

     

    Here we see again in the midst of a crisis what he does. Idk but because Jesus left his deity behind he’s dealing with his circumstances as a man yes man of God Son of God. My point is when this was worked out an eternity ago ( ya I’ve hard time dealing with eternity past) he would not have recall that moment n the time continuum So even though he has known what when and how. He just doesn’t have the capacity to deal with his circumstances as GOD. This means he would have a much harder time with this than we would. Here’s why he hasn’t been separated from his/our Father ever and doesn’t have any idea how devastation this will be. We can’t possibly grasp the concept of being separated from GOD as we haven’t always been directly connected to him. Even as a believer we often have big gaps of time we are not it directly in communion with GOD . I would think it would be frightening in many ways.

     

    Now in his moment of time when Jesus is praying to the Father asking if there’s another way. Do we understand what Jesus is saying. Not that he doesn’t want to pay our sin debt. He’s saying as a man as a human he doesn’t want to die this way nor the separation. Yet his answer is there’s no other way. He is in total agreement with the Father.  He’s asking for the power strength to go though an absolute onslaught of ridicule lies misrepresentation of who he is. The beating he will take on. Remember he’s seen crucifixion and the brutality of it.  Plus the spiritual reality he’s going to feel the wages of sin. He’s dealing with he absolutely knows the hope for humanity goes through him. Failure isn’t an option but the thought is there. Consider this Jesus is the ONLY ONE who could have still failed after death. As he’s in hell preaching to those there. He’s being told this is a one way trip. NO ONE leaves here. If at any time just the thought of GOD coming back for him at that point he’d now would have sinned therefore he doesn’t come out. We die we go directly to our corner Heaven or Hell. We made our bed this side of eternity.

     

    Again the Apostels miss an opportunity to be with their Lord their friend their spiritual leader in a time of need. They were asked can you just watch by Jesus. He didn’t ask them to pray. However if they knew Jesus  intimately if they would have watched they would have rushed to his side. Just as Jesus did many times for them. Yet they are not in tune with Jesus mission as they see their KING. Just bypass the whole Messiah thing and jump to KINGDOM. Of course this means they go with him and help run The Kingdom. So they don’t pay close attention to him. Now when the fate of all humanity is held in the balance, there’s no one to be with him. How horribly that must have felt to him. As he loves them dearly they do not have this love at this time.

     

    What does happen as Jesus gets his answer Angels had to come to minister to Jesus as he started in this world with no room for him is leaving with no room for him as messiah Especially devastating his own men don’t have the room for him either. Notice even with the Angels show Jesus continues to pray he begins to sweat blood. This is not common but has been documented to have taken place with men on death row hours before their death would sweat blood. This comes from a deep anguish. Actually he’s also coming to grips with if he fails the whole Spiritual dimension/ realm would be put in disarray to what point I got no answer for what that would look like. I doubt he could grasp that reality. To fail would separate him for eternity. He can’t understand how terrible it will be for three days. There’s no way to phantom an eternity. Bottom line Everything is dependent on Jesus following through.

     

    We are not told he gained comfort from the Angels. We don’t even know they spoke. They could have come just to stand in silent reverence and solidarity with Jesus. At best they could only encourage him to go forward. Comfort calmness I don’t see as possibilities.  There will be times of great turmoil as well as situations that seem small but can mushroom out into something bigger. The thing we should consider if not comet ourselves to spend time in prayer. See GOD speaks to us through answers prayer. ( I would refer you to the testimonial forum and look THE  7 STEPS IN UNDERSTANDING GOD)  We are always welcomed into the Throne Room. Why not use it.

     

    This concludes today’s teaching on prayer. I will soon return. As always I want to thank you ahead of time for your loyal following the muses of an ole preacher. This is why I stay here. The support system is amazing. Just like you all are to me. GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                               OTHER EXAMPLES OF JESUS PRAYING

     

     

    TODAYS SCRIPTURE MARK 1:32/39.

     

    WHAT WE WILL SEE IS A FEW THINGS HAPPEN. JESUS HAD MANY FOLLOWING HIM TO BE HEALED TO BE TAUGHT. OTHERS WERE THERE CUS OF THE WOW EFFECT. WHEREVER JESUS SEEMED TO BE THINGS HAPPEN. ( THATS TRUE TODAY. WHERE EVER GODS PEOPLE ARE INVOLVED IN KINGDOM WORK MIRACLES STILL HAPPEN). WE WOULD SEE THAT ALMOST EVERY TIME JESUS WOULD EXTEND HIMSELF TO THE POINT OF EXHAUSTION. BOTH PHYSICALLY AND SPIRITUALLY. HIS CUSTOM WAS TO EITHER END THE DAY IN RETREAT TO REFILL HIMSELF WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT. I AM NOT SURE EXACTLY HOW IT ALL WORKS  BUT FROM FIRST HAND EXPERIENCES IVE OFTEN BEEN SO WEAKENED BY MINISTERING. I WOULD HAVE TO REST. IT TOOK FEW YEARS FOR MY MENTOR AND PASTOR HERM TO CONVINCE TO REFILL ONES SELF WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT  

    HERE WE SEE JESUS HEADING OUT BEFORE THE SUN RISE TO GO BE ONE ON ONE WITH THE FATHER.  HE WOULD SEEK GODS GUIDANCE FOR THE DAYS EVENTS . THIS TIME HIS CLOSEST BRETHREN FOLLOWED AND CAME TO HIM AND SAID BASICALLY WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE. WE HAVE TONS OF PEEPS WAITING ON US. ACTUALLY IT WAS JESUS THEY WANTED TO  THEY (THE APOSTLES WERE ENJOYING THE RIDE). JESUS AFTER PRAYING TELLS THEM WE ARE GOING TO THE NEXT TOWN.

    WE DO NOT SEE IT HERE BUT THERE ARE OTHER PLACES WHERE THE APOSTLES ARE SAYING WHY. WE GOT THIS GREAT GIG GOING. IT DOESNT MAKE SINCE.  THIS IS OFTEN TRUE TODAY AS WE START OUT TO SERVE WITH HIM ONLY TO FIND HES GOT OTHER IDEAS THAT ARE NOT ALIGNED WITH MY THOUGH PROCESS. THEN HE DID SAY MY WAYS ARE NOT YOUR WAYS. THINGS WOULD OFTEN GO IN A TOTALLY DIFFERENT DIRECTION. MUCH OF THE TIME WE ARE NOT SURE AS WE HAVE THIS GREAT GIG GOING. HE DOESNT WANT US TO GROW COMPLACENT SO HE OFTEN CHANGES THINGS UP A LITTLE. ITS DEBATABLE WE WOULD GO IF WE SAW THE TRIALS WE WOULD GO THROUGH WHILE GODS CHANGING OUR PATH. INEVITABLY. WE WILL FIND ALL THINGS ALTHOUGH WERE NOT HOW WE WOULD HAVE WANTED WORKED OUT MUCH BETTER THEN TRYING ON OUR OWN. JESUS TOLD TO MOVE ON NOT GROW.COMFORTABLE.

    THE APOSTLES MIND ARE ON THE KING JESUS SETTING UP THE KINGDOM. THEY COULD NOT GET WHY THE WHOLE SAVE THE WORLD WAS WHAT THEY WANTED.

    YET JESUS WOULD NOT FALL IN THAT TRAP. AS HE KNOWS WHY HE IS HERE, THIS TIME AND WONT BE SHOOK FROM THAT CHOICE TO BE MESSIAH. JESUS WAS NOT BOUT POPULARITY BUT EXPOSURE.  ARE NOT THEY NOT ONE And THE SAME? NO.  POPULARITY IS A ALL BOUT RECOGNITION FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE TO ENJOY THE ATTENTION. EXPOSER WILL ALLOW YOU TO KEEP MOVING. IT ALSO BRINGS RECOGNITION WHICH BRINGS POPULARITY. HOWEVER THIS POPULARITY IS NOT BOASTFUL BUT HUMBLE. SO BEFORE JESUS BECAME SO POPULAR HE WOULD OFTEN SEEK GODS DIRECTION TO PREVENT HIMSELF FROM NOT SPREADING TO MUCH TIME IN ONE PLACE.  BUT RATHER TO SPREAD THE GOSPLE WHICH OFTEN MEANT LEAVING ANY COMFORT ZONE BEHIND.

     

    THIS WILL CONCLUDE TODAYS TIME IN LEARNING BOUT PRAYER. I DO HOPE YOU HAVE BEEN BLEST BY THE TIME WE SPEND. I KNOW I DO. I WILL RETURN IN A FEW DAYS. THIS TOPIC WILL TAKE US SEVERAL WEEKS. ITS THE MOST POWERFUL THING WE HAVE. LETS LEARN HOW TO USE IT AT ITS BEST. UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN. GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                   PRAYER 

     

                                         OTHER EXAMPLES OF JESUS PRAYING 

     

    TODAYS SCRIPTURES LUKE 22:19. LUKE 24:30 

     

    Both of these examples that JESUS shows us have very different significance. Both have to do with giving THANKS.  Yet both very different settings and moods. The first we are much more familiar with it’s the Last Supper. This was the last time JESUS was trying to show them tell them about what was about to happen.They missed that again  This would be their last Passover Meal together Yet JESUS gave thanks for the fellowship However He had deeper symbolic message He was sending. He was giving Thanks to His/Our Father for what was unfolding even as he was praying. During His last hours JESUS handles things much differently they we would. He’s still trying to encourage durning most discouraging times He was experiencing. 

    The second time we may not be as familiar with. This took place after the Resurrection. This was durning the 40 day period JESUS seemed to be everywhere. This is when JESUS meant the Apostles by the sea. He also has a time of fellowship. He would have a meal with them. It was a bit short but then Jesus again was on a time limit. As He breaks the bread this time He says nothing bout the broken body my rather the celebration of His Resurrected body. Incidentally a body not restricted to the laws of time. As he sits with His men grateful for the price now paid and His REESTABLISHEd Relationship with the FATHER. He also know is functioning in His capacity of Deity, so He’s very aware of the CHUCH AGE that was about to begin. Imho. JESUS could have and did see ALL us that have and will come to Him as Savior. Also for the prices All will pay to follow Him. After He gives Thanks We are not privy to how long they spent. But it would seem at some point in time JESUS overcomes the time problem by moving at the speed of thought. For in a instant He was gone. That will also be how fast we will be Raptured out the realm to the Heavenly Realm. 

    The biggest things to take away. Be Thankful. And let your Spirit Be of A Joyful One allowing no other response than Thanksgiving. This is where I will end today. Perfect segway to my Thankfulness for all you and the support you are giving to our Testimonial Forum and especially here. I’ll return soon. Until then GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                PRAYER

     

                                              OTHER EXAMPLES OF JESUS PRAYER 

     

    TODAYS SCRIPTURE LUKE  23:34

     

    Today we will see that JESUS shows us the importance of forgiveness. We are familiar with these words and the circumstances that made them something that GOD wanted documented.  Oddly I often wonder exactly what is the context or the content may be better way to approach this statement.  We know JESUS is speaking of forgiveness. The question is when it was said does it carry the same meaning?  See if this makes sense JESUS is speaking of forgiveness and asking this forgiveness at the closing of the LAW and the DAWN of The CHURCH AGE.  The request to have GOD forgive others isn’t like JOB sacrificing for his children. However real forgiveness from GOD would accomplish the same result. Yet does it work that way under the law imho NO.  Does it work in the CHURCH AGE? Again the only forgiveness comes from GOD through JESUS  as one’s savior. So again I can’t ask GOD to forgive you as a believer for that’s done through CHRIST. What about the non believer? Can I ask GOD to forgive them. NO. Only JESUS can give this to anyone.

    Then what is to be learned from JESUS PRAYER ?  It’s understanding where and when JESUS unters these words. The reality here is this is part of a conversation that took place an Eternity ago. It went something like this. When GOD decides to creat man THEY singular choose to give mankind freedom of choice. Knowing they will choose to rebel. At that time The FATHER says the price of their rebellion will need to be paid for. JESUS knows HIS part and says you will forgive them if I pay the price. The FATHER says yes.

    Idk how to fast forward from Eternity Past works yet we find the point in time where the sin the rebellion is being paid for. So I see two things transpiring simultaneously. First JESUS is speaking of that past conversation and wants to reassurance that if HE goes through with this GOD will forgive  mankind. As agreed  The FATHER promised HE would however only those who receive you as savior. Giving JESUS even more encouragement to stay upon the cross, and finish the race ( pay the price)

    Yet I believe JESUS also looked into the future and spoke of those who would receive HIM as savior. HE certainly wasn’t speaking of those at the cross. As everyone there knew why they were there. Then in some cases sadly absent. So HE has to be speaking of all us on our given day when we put our FAITH into JESUS as savior.   That would give a whole new meaning to when JESUS was on the Cross WE were on  HIS mind.

    Lastly JESUS was setting the table for us to remember the LORDS PRAYER and the Forgiveness Component to the Prayer that we should ask  GOD to help us forgive others. Just as JESUS forgives us. Remembering HE is sinless. We are not. It’s not as natural for us. Yet paramount for our relationship with our LORD to make sure we forgive others.

    Thank You all for stopping bye to take in my thoughts. I hope you have been encouraged or at least given you another way to see these words. Idk when I will be back. It won’t be to long. Yet until I return GODSPEED BLESSING ONE LOVD PD

                                              JESUS EXAMPLES AND REASONS.

     

    SCRIPTURES

    MARK 14:36.                                      GOD WILL.

     

     

    There are two things I want to bring forth pertaining to GOD Will.  First let’s address the circumstances JESUS finds himself in. At this moment in time HE is making known to all us. JESUS did not want to go through the whole ordeal.  Remember JESUS was born under ROMAN OCCUPATION. So HE had seen people who have been crucified.   Just because JESUS was aware of the type of death HE would face and actually knew it since the age of 12, doesn’t mean this was going to be easier. Actually it’s likely this made it even harder. HE would have been counting down the years months weeks days n now hours. HIS prayer was to enable HIM to go through the whole process. No one there was aware of the heavy load JESUS was enduring. So much so that GOD had to send Angels to draw comfort. JESUS Physically (the man) was under so much anguish HE was sweating blood. SPIRITUALLY it meant everything and HE was I total agreement with the FATHER. Therefore HE would do GODS Will. Notice just as JESUS GODS Will is HIS (OUR PURPOSE)

    Now the second point of reference I’d like to touch on very quickly. People ask *WHAT IS GODS WILL IN MY LIFE* Wrong Question The right approach is adjusting your life to join where HE is already at work. Few points of reference to help us to know our response.

    1 ) KNOWING GODS WILL. Matthew 25:46 John 3:16 Hebrews 10:10. 1 Peter 5:10.

     

    IS THE GREATEST KNOWLEDGE

     

    2 ) FINDING GODS WILL Matthew 7:21  Matthew 7:7-8 Matthew 6:23.

     

    IS THE GREATEST DISCOVERY

     

    3 ) DOING GODS WILL.  Matthew 28:19-20  Matthew 25:23. John 20:21 Proverbs 3:5-6

     

    IS THE GREATEST LIFE

     

    IN CONCLUSION

     

    JESUS was Faithful to accomplish HIS FATHER / OUR FATHER Will. He needed to seek GODS face to allow HIM to be prepared to finish HIS earthly ministry. JESUS always had/found reasons to pray. HE prayed everyday at times He would pray several times a day. We would be wise to follow JESUS EXAMPLE. That is to say perhaps we should spend more time in our number one way to Partition The Lord That would be prayer.

     

    I will close here for today. I am not sure how long I will be gone. I’m hoping not as long as this last time. That said I appreciate you all being so patient. Until the GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                 PRAYER 

    TODAY I WILL START A NEW DIRECTION ABOUT PRAYER. WE KNOW IF IT HAS BEEN DONE IN THE BIBLE, THEN ITS QUITE POSSIBLE TO HAPPEN AGAIN. IT IS WE MAY NOT KNOW WHAT WAS DONE THROUGH PRAYER OR WE DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE AUTHORITY WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN BY GOD TO INTERVENE AS PRAYER PARTNERS OR INTERCESSORY PRAYER. I AM GOING TO SHOW US THINGS ( CERTAINLY NOT ALL) THINGS PRAYED FOR. ALSO WHERE POSSIBLE SHOW YOU THE OUTCOME. 

    TODAY WE WILL GO OVER SOME AMAZING PRAYERS THAT WERE OFFERED UP TO YHE LORD AND THE OUTCOMES.  

    WE WILL START WAY BACK IN THE OLD TESTAMENT ACTUALLY WITH MOSES. 

    SCRIPTURES NUMBERS 12:11-13. 
                          NUMBERS 14:16. 


    WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS MOSES GOING ON BEHALF OF HIS OLDER SISTER AS SHE HAD BEEN STRUCK MY LEPROSY. FIRST LETS ADDRESS THE REASON SHE WAS CURSED WITH THIS DISEASE. SHE WAS PROBABLY UPSERT ON HOW THE WHOLE MOVING TO THE PROMISED LAND WAS GOING. MAYBE EVEN MOSES LEADERSHIP QUALITIES. HOWEVER SHE VOICES A STRONG OPPOSITION TO MOSE NEW WIFE. SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE SHE WAS ETHIOPIAN. EVEN ARRON WAS UPSET BOUT THE ARRANGEMENT. THEN WHY THE SISTER. MAINLY AS SHE WAS OLDER THEN BOTH HER BROTHERS. THEREFORE SHOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH MORE INTUNE WITH GOD. SHE ALSO FAILED TO SEE GOD BLESSED BY HIS ARRANGEMENT OF THIS UNION. PERHAPS SHES NOT HAPPY THAT AN OUTSIDER IS COMING INTO THE FOLD/FAMILY OF ISREAL. THIS FIRST MARRIAGE SET A PATTERN THAT WOULD CONTINUE TO ACCURE THROUGHOUT THE SCRIPTURES. TWO SUCH PLACES. QUEEN SHEBA. WHO WOULD HAVE A SON WITH SOLOMON. SHE WOULD ALSO TAKE BACK THE LAW WITH HER WHEN SHE WENT HOME. THIS CONNECTION STAYED IN TACT ANOTHER 3000 YEARS AFTER QUEEN SHEBA SHOWED UP. THIS IS WHEN WE SEE THE ETHIOPIAN UNICH  COMING OUT OF JERUSALEM FROM CELEBRATING THE PASSOVER AND THE GIVING OF THE TITHS. THIS IS WHERE TIMOTHY THE EVANGELIST MEANT HIM. WE ARE NOT POSITIVE THIS IS TIMOTHY PAUL WRITES TO. LIKELY WAS. HOWBER WE NEVER SEE THAT TITLE ASSOCIATED WITH PAULS TIMOTHY. 

    MOSES GOES ON BEHALF OF HIS SISTER AND INTERCEDES ON HER BEHALF IN NUMBERS 12:11-13. MOSES ASKES GOD TO HEAL HER. IF GOD DORS NOT THEN SHE WILL BE AN OUTCAST. THAT SURLY WOULD HAVE BEEN A VERY QUICK DEMISE. SEEING THEY WERE IN THE WILDERNESS AND BY STAYING TOGETHER THEY HAVE THEIR BEST CHANCE TO GET THROUGH THE TIME THEY WILL HAVE BEFORE THEY ENTER THE PROMISED LAND. BTW THAT WAS PROMISED ABRAHAM BEFORE HE HAD A CHILD. HOWEVER FOR REASONS I WON’T GO INTO THE NATION OF ISREAL WOULD PUT THEMSELVES IN HARMS WAY BECAUSE OF THEIR LACK OF FAITH. A THE LACK OF ACTION BY MOSES. 

    WE SEE THAT IN NUMBERS 14:16 GOD RESTORES MARIUM BACK TO HER NATURAL STATE AND THE LEPROSY WAS HEALED. GOD STILL IS IN THE HEALING BUSINESS. WE EITHER DO NOT REALIZE WE SHOULD PRAY OR COULD PRAY FOR MIRACLES SUCH AS HEALINGS OF MAJOR AND MINOR SICKNESSES. THE ONLY REQUIREMENT HERE WAS TWO FOLD. MOSES HAD TO ASK. AS WELL AS HAVE THE FAITH GOD COULD AND WOULD HEAL HIS OLDER SISTER. THIS WOULD ALSO SHOW THE NATION OF ISREAL ONCE AGAIN MOSES WAS HIS MAN HIS LEADER. IF THEY ARE PAYING ATTENTION THEY CAN BE MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE KNOWING GOD HAS HIS MAN IN PLACE. ALSO THEY WOULD GROW IN CONFIDENCE THAT GOD WAS FOR THEM AS WELL. WE TOO HAVE THIS SAME POWER SAME AUTHORITY ACCEPT WE ARE INDWELLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT. MOSES WAS ANOINTED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. MAKING OUR ABILTY TO PRAY EVEN MORE CRITICAL. 

    I WILL END TODAY WITH THIS FIRST PRAYER ANSWERED. LET IT ENCOURAGE YOU TO ASK FOR GOD TO DO WHAT WE THINK IS IMPOSSIBLE. PRAY AS IF IT WAS OR IT IS OR WILL BECOME. I WILL BE BACK SOONER THEN THE LENGTH OF TIME IVE BEEN MISSING. THANK YOU ALL THE SAME FOR CONTINUING TO STOP HERE TO READ THESE POSTS. UNTIL WE CROSS PATHS AGAIN. GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                PRAYER 

                                                            PRAYER WORKS 

     

    SCRIPTURES 2 CHRONICLES 6:12-42 

                           2 CHRONICLES 7:1-2. 

    Even though Solomon was chosen to build the Temple. His father King David gathered everything to build the Temple, however GOD would not let him build the Temple as he was a King of war. Where Solomon was known as a King of peace. It must have been hard on David as he truly loves GOD, yet he must have been joyful that Solomon was chosen. This meant that all the effort David put in to establish the nation if Israel as the  super power in the area. He also gathered all the material as mentioned to build the Temple was worth all the time and effort.
    Even through Solomon was chosen to build the Temple by the  specs GOD had given, he wasn’t sure GOD would inhabit the Temple. What we notice is that even though the Temple was built GOD still had to be asked to come. Once GOD was invited to come HE did enter the Temple. I’m sure that once this came to pass it was a much different atmosphere within the Temple. It must have brought great joy to all that entered.  Sadly in the not to distant future GOD would not be honored and slowly left the Temple and no one noticed. There were many reasons why that came to past. 
    What we can glean from this is when we ask CHRIST to come into our heart HE does. By doing so we become HIS Temple. It brings great joy when this happens. Likewise when we ask GOD to allow us to join HIM or we ask HIM to intervene.  if we are serious GOD will create the way for it to come to pass. The GREAT news is unlike the physical Temple of Israel where GOD left when HE was taken for granted. When JESUS moves into our lives/heart, there is nothing we can do that would make CHRIST leave us. Actually JESUS said I will never leave you or forsake you. However if we don’t continue to cultivate our relationship then our Faith will be affected. When this happens our relationship is affected. How do we know? The Word says without Faith (excised) it’s impossible to please GOD. Then the opposite can take place. The GOOD news is all we have to do is repent and the relationship is reestablished. Not as it was but as good as it can be at the time of our repentance. It’s the difference between GODS Perfect Will and HIS  Permissive Will. HE will always have things for us to be involved in Kingdom Building. That means us as individuals as we are part of the universal church. This means our Temple needs to be maintained as part of the universal church. 
    In conclusion remember ask and you will receive as long as your in tune with the LORD. I will be back soon.  As always I’m humbled that you keep returning to read the posts I put up. Thank You for such undeserved faithfulness. Until I return GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                    PRAYER 

     

                                                           ANSWERED PRAYER 

     

    TODAYS SCRIPTURES DANIEL 6:10 and 6:16 

    This is when Daniel had been put in a bad position where even the king could not protect Daniel from the peer pressure and had to allow Daniel to be put in a den with very hungry lions. I’m sure the King was praying not likely totally to Daniel’s GOD Surly others who are keeping the faith and also prayed for Daniel’s safety. Daniel was put in over night. The den closed so know one could see or interfere. Because these lions are purposely kept hungry so they will eat anything edible. Daniel shows us incredible faith. He truly was looking at his demise All he did without hesitation was PRAY for GODS Providence. He kept PRAYING until GOD answered his PRAYER We don’t know how GOD kept him safe was it Angels or just GOD speaking to the mouth and keeping it shut. Either way Daniel shows us PRAYER should be our first line of defense not last. 

    We see the next day the King wanted to get to the den. We know what he’s hoping but everything in him says there will be NO good ending here. Everyone predominantly (except and other Hebrews that may have been allowed to come) knew and many were counting on nature running its corse. However what we see is amazing unless you put GOD in the equation Then you can get results like Daniel being alive and the lions on the other side of the den. However Note Daniel is praying. What he knew was confirmed the first second the lions were loosed PRAYER works so they found him PRAYING. What do you think was going through their mind, two things  simultaneously Daniel’s alive He’s praying This may have taken a few seconds to register WHO is this Hebrew GOD that did this? That made them accountable what each did from there we no very little of. I imagine there was a type of revival happened. 

    When we pray to our LORD we can expect GOD to hear and answer our request. Once we begin to see our PRAYERS answered it should encourage us to go after bigger issues and increase our Faith. All that should only increase our desire to PRAY. We will come to find GOD in the mist of our PRAYERS. This also develops a healthy relationship with our LORD. 

    This is where this part of the post ends. Hopefully it will encourage us to pray for the what we consider impossible and watch what GOD does  I also want to express my gratitude to all stopping bye to read this short but import topic. I don’t know when I will get back until then GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                PRAYER 

     

                                                           PRAYER WORKS 

     

    SCRIPTURES LUKE 3:21. 3:22

     

    This is a familiar story. This is  the BAPTISM of JESUS.  REMEMBER JESUS  has up until this time functioned without the aid of the Holy Spirit. There’s a few rational for why the Holy Spirit was introduced at this time At this point I won’t go into those reasons but will endeavor to cover them at a later date. JESUS knows all HE knows about Himself by what HE found in the scriptures. Now HE is about to enter HIS ministry. HE also knows within the next 3 1/2 HE will be crucified.  HE totally knows how and when this will come to past. With all these things weighing heavy So when John the Baptist Baptizes JESUS.    JESUS then prays for GOD to Empower/Equip HIM for this next and most important time of HIS life. What HE receives is The Holy Spirit again one of the rational for timing. We will learn the things The Holy Spirit does. GOD THE FATHER answered HIM with not just the Holy Spirit but the Heavens open up as the Spirit descends upon JESUS actually entered into HIM Therefore different then the Holy Spirit interacted with the Prophets as they were anointed. JESUS was in dwelled as we are upon receiving JESUS as Savior. Yet even better was The FATHER saying THIS IS MY SON WHOM I AM WELL PLEASED. Everyone there saw the Dove and heard the voice. It also speaks to the Trinity. 

    We have the request by JESUS which HE receives by the FATHER and the FATHER speaking of HIS son JESUS. We don’t have to ask for the Holy Spirit as HE is the one who comes into us as salvation. However we often forget to ask for refilling of the Holy Spirit. We see JESUS doing just that often especially after a long day of healing, HE’D retreat to a quiet place to refill. In the mornings would be more of communing with the FATHER that doesn’t mean the Holy Spirit isn’t there. It’s just a different focus yet I’m sure there would be a time invested on the up coming day. 

    This will finish today’s PRAYER WORKS. I will return soon. Until then May our LORD pour out favor upon your every endeavor. TY again for stopping in and spend some time with me here. GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD

                                                                 PRAYER 

     

                                                          PRAYER WORKS 

     

    SCRIPTURES MATTHEW 15:36 

                          MATTHEW 25:37 

     

    HERE AGAIN IS A VEEY WELL KNOWN STORY. THIS IS ONE OF TWO TIMES JESUS IS MOVED BY COMPASSION. AFTER TEACHING THE  MULTITUDE, IT BACAME LATE IN THE AFTERNOON. I BELIEVE THIS WAS BY JESUS DESIGN. JESUS WAS ABOUT TO DUPLICATE A MIRACLE HE HAD JUST A FEW DAYS BEFORE. THIS WOULD PROVE THE FIRST WASNT A FLUKE. ALSO HE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THEY HAD FOOD. AS THEY FOR THE MOST PART DIDNT EXPECT TO BE THERE ALL DAY SO VERY FEW BROUGHT FOOD. LASTLY HE WANTED TO TEST THE APOSTLES. HE WANTED TO SEE IF THEY PANICK OR COME TO JESUS WITH A SOLUTION.  AFTER HAVING EVERYONE BREAK UP INTO SMALL GROUPS OF 50/100. PEOPLE.  SO THEY COULD ALL SEE WHAT HE WAS ABOUT TO DO. ALWAYS REMEMBER JESUS WAS THE MASTER OF HIS DOMAIN. AFTER COLLECTING A FEW FISH AND LOAVES HE PRAYS TO MULTIPLY WHAT HE HAD. AFTER HE PRAYED HE SENT HIS MEN OUT TO FEED THE PEOPLE. THIS WAS DONE SO HIS DISCIPLES WOULD SEE THE INSTANT RESULTS. AFTER THE FACT THERE WAS MORE FOOD THEN HE STARTED. CAN WE PRAY TO MULTIPLY  OUR FOOD WITH PRAYER. YES IF HE HAVE ENOUGH FAITH AND A REASON FOR ASKING. YET WE CAN STILL GIVE THANKS FOR WHAT WE HAVE. 

    TY FOR DROPPING IN. I WILL RETURN SOON. UNTIL THEN GODSPEED BLESSINGS ONE LOVE PD
