02-10-18 FaithLine Devotion JESUS, THE RESURRECTION AND LIFE…

My dear brothers and sisters, dedicating your lives to singing for Jesus“…AFTER I HAVE RISEN, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.” (Matt. 26:32)

Jesus said: “…as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (Matt. 12:40)

So, what did Jesus do for these three days and nights?

“For Christ also suffered…to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive in the Spirit. After being made alive, HE WENT AND MADE PROCLAMATION TO THE IMPRISONED SPIRITS—” (1 Pet. 3:18-19)

As the possessor of the keys of death and hell, Jesus was led to proclaim the gospel to this group…

“I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I HOLD THE KEYS OF DEATH AND HELL.” (Rev.  1:18)

Jesus Christ, when we receive Him and believe on Him, we have everlasting life…

“Jesus said…I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;” (John 11:25)

WE WERE ALL BORN INTO SIN, BUT JESUS FORGIVES US AND MAKES US ONE WITH THE FATHER.

FaithLine, the bible says: I HOLD THE KEYS OF DEATH AND HELL.”

02-09-18 Loved One’s Devotion PREPARING JESUS FOR A SHORT BURIAL…

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day:  “A woman came to Jesus with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table. When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked. “This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.”

Alabaster jars were often made from a precious stone found in Israel. This stone resembles the texture of marble, and was extremely expensive to own. Mark tells us it was worth about one year’s wages (John 12:5)

Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “WHY ARE YOU BOTHERING THIS WOMAN? SHE HAS DONE A BEAUTIFUL THING TO METhe poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me. When she poured this perfume on my body, SHE DID IT TO PREPARE ME FOR BURIALTruly I tell you, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, WHAT SHE HAS DONE WILL ALSO BE TOLD, in memory of her.” (Matt. 26:7-12)

It is interesting to go through the Gospel accounts and note the many times Jesus said to these disciples that he was going to die. Over and over again he informed them that he was heading for death. NOT ONE OF THEM BELIEVED HIM — except Mary of Bethany.

LET THE WORLD AROUND YOU KNOW, JESUS IS COMING BACK

Notice: [We must understand that the bible says:] “…WHY ARE YOU BOTHERING THIS WOMAN? SHE HAS DONE A BEAUTIFUL THING TO ME...” !!!That’s for you: Stephanie, Ethan, Camden, Olivia, Aidan, Landon, Kinsley, Annika and Kaleigh

02-08-18 Loved One’s Devotion THE WEDDING OF THE LAMB…

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: FOR YOUR HUSBAND IS YOUR MAKER, whose name is the LORD of hosts… “For the LORD has called you…even like a wife of one’s youth…” Says your God.” (Isaiah 54:5-6)

The Lord has planned this wedding for some time, why a wedding? Because it is the ultimate form of intimacy.

“Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For THE WEDDING OF THE LAMB HAS COME, and his bride HAS MADE HERSELF READY. Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited TO THE WEDDING SUPPER OF THE LAMB.” (Rev. 19:7, 9)

The great and glorious day will soon come, and nothing will compare to this awesome event! So, how will we prepare for this day?

Fine linenbright and clean, was given her to wear.” (Fine linen stands for THE RIGHTEOUS ACTS of God’s holy people.)” (Rev. 19:8)

We put on this fine linen, then what?

“…KEEP 1WATCH, because you do not know the day or the hour.” (Matt. 25:13) 1grēgoreúōbe vigilant (responsible, watchful).

I PRAY THAT YOU, MAY HAVE POWERTO GRASP HOW WIDELONG,HIGH AND DEEP IS THE LOVE OF CHRIST.

02-07-18 Loved One’s Devotion ONLY THE FATHER KNOWS…

My awesome, loving and wonderful Grandchildren, and Annika and Kaleigh, whom I love and pray for every day: “In the same way, when you see all those things happening, you know that the end is near. It is right at the door. What I’m about to tell you is true. The people living at that time will certainly not pass away UNTIL ALL THOSE THINGS HAVE HAPPENED. (Matt. 24:32-34)

Some guy wrote a book called 88 reasons for the rapture in 1988. Then he revised it and changed the title to 89 reasons for the rapture in 1989. Why is it that IF THE SON OF MAN DOESN’T KNOWTHE DAY OR HOUR, some think they do know?

“No one knows about that day or hour. Not even the angels in heaven know. THE SON DOES NOT KNOWOnly the Father knows.” (Matt. 24:36)

So, what do we do while we wait?

“…KEEP 1WATCH, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.” (Matt. 24:40-42)1grēgoreúō literally: stay awake; figuratively: be responsible, watchful.

“Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spiritPERFECTING HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD.” (2 Corin. 7:1)

WE MAY NOT KNOW THE DAY OR HOUR, BUT WE DO KNOW THE SIGNS OF THE TIME
