12-11-17 Loved One’s Devotion SHIELDED BY GOD’S POWER…

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day:  All our blessings are because of God’s mercy, not because of man’s worth, He hath begotten us, and this deserves our thanksgiving to God, we have A LIVELY HOPE, A LIVING, STRONG, QUICKENING, AND DURABLE HOPE.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! IN HIS GREAT MERCY, he has given us new birth into A LIVING HOPE through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the deadwe ARE SHIELDED BY GOD’S POWER until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.” (1 Peter 1:3-5)

Several years ago, we pastored the Darrington Church (Washington), a very precious young woman gave her heart to the Lord and was wonderfully born again. She wanted her husband to be saved so we began a prayer vigil for him and things began to get worse before those prayers were answered. When my wife and I would visit their home, he would sit across from me and as he smoked a cigarette he would blow the smoke in my face and wait for a reaction. The Lord helped us to be kind in spite of several rude remarks and after several weeks the Lord marvelously saved him. He began to attend church but would not participate in our Sunday school class because as we discovered later, he had never learned to read. He began to seek the Lord to teach him to read the bible and soon he was reading and commenting in class. Later he became a Deacon and a great asset to our local church. Is there anything too hard for the Lord to accomplish? “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. IS ANYTHING TOO HARD FOR ME? (Jeremiah 32:27)

WE ARE SHIELDED BY GOD’S POWER AND NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR HIM!

12-10-17 Loved One’s Devotion THE READER AND HEARER BLESSED…

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: THE REVELATION FROM JESUS CHRIST, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place…Blessed is the one WHO READS aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those WHO HEAR IT AND TAKE TO HEART WHAT IS WRITTEN IN IT, because the time is near.” (Rev. 1:1-3)

The book of Revelation is an apocryphal letter, it relies on visions, symbols, and Old Testament references to reveal the final fulfillment of God’s promise given to Abraham in Genesis. The book is not a secret code that allows believers to decipher the timeline of Jesus’s return, it is the revealing of God’s plan for the end times.

“This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and THEN THE END WILL COME.” (Matt. 24:14)

I write these devotions each morning and send them ALL OVER THE WORLD from my computer and cell phone! Just saying…

“…you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, KEEP YOURSELVES IN THE LOVE OF GODwaiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.” (Jude 1:20-21)

As I earnestly seek the Lord each day for what He would have me to write, it has become clear to me that the Lord is admonishing us to be ready for His return so, let’s be anxiously awaiting and keeping ourselves in God’s love…

LIFT UP YOUR EYES AND LOOK…

12-09-17 Loved One’s Devotion GETTING TO KNOW HIM BETTER…

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: “…here is what you must understand. In the last days people will make fun of the truth. THEY WILL LAUGH AT IT. They will follow their own evil longings. They will say, “WHERE IS THIS ‘RETURN’ HE PROMISED?” (2 Peter 3:3-4 NIrV)

The truth is, the trumpet WILL sound, and the Lord WILL “catch us up” to be with Him forever, no matter how hard they may laugh…

Dear friends, you already know that. So be on your guard. Then YOU WON’T BE LED DOWN THE WRONG PATH by the mistakes of people who don’t obey…You won’t fall from your safe position. GROW IN THE GRACE of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. GET TO KNOW HIM BETTER. Give him glory both now and forever. Amen.” (2 Peter 3:17-18)

Our mission is to DRAW CLOSER TO GOD, getting to know Him better by consuming the Word of God and regularly talking to God so we are not led down the wrong path. This will assure that we continue to grow in the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and become more and more like Him, because:

“…we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM, FOR WE SHALL SEE HIM AS HE IS.” (1 John 3:2)

THINK ABOUT IT, WE WILL BE JUST LIKE JESUS

12-08-17 Loved One’s Devotion TROUBLED HEARTS…

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: A troubled heart can be found in anyone, even the Christian. There are many reasons for one’s heart to be troubled — death of a loved one,  unfaithfulness of a friend, a feeling of insecurity, a lack of understanding, personal problems. What is the Christian to do when his heart becomes troubled? He must look to Jesus and the comfort only He can give.

Do not let your hearts be troubledYou believe in God; BELIEVE ALSO IN ME. (John 14:1)

Jesus recognized how troubled His apostles would be by His death so in this passage He assured them and us that come back and get them. 

“…if I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL COME BACK AND TAKE YOU TO BE WITH ME that you also may be where I am.” (John 14:3)

Oh Lord, help us to make sure we are going the right way…

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father EXCEPT THROUGH ME.” (John 14:6)

But Lord, we are so comforted by your presence…

“I will ask the Father, and he will give you ANOTHER COMFORTER to help you and BE WITH YOU FOREVER— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and WILL BE IN YOU.” (John 14:16-18)

WE MUST CONSTANTLY REMIND OURSELVES THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD IS IN US!
