The Invisible Scriptures

22 Jan

The Invisible Scriptures…

One of the most important parts of the Bible is invisible. Every Bible has words in ink but it also has white space. Not just now but even from the beginning in ancient scrolls. You can’t read the words without the background.

The word of God doesn’t exist in a void, it has to exist in your life. You can’t read the Bible without that white background. So people can’t see the Lord without it being real in your life; without the word coming into your life and being real.

Your life is God’s sacred parchment. But when you put them together you’ve got something great there! Take the promises of God and put them into your life. Take the principle of the word, put it into your life. Take the admonition of God, of the word, and put it into your life.

Because it’s written that you are a living epistle. You are to be a living Bible. Your life is the sacred parchment that exists to bring forth the word and the glory of God.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

Your life is the sacred parchment for the Word of God. Apply it in your life. Apply His love. Apply His will. Be His sacred parchment.

Walk daily with God at your side!

In Autumn It Will Come

21 Jan

In Autumn It Will Come…

Teshuvah, it’s Hebrew for return, repentance – Teshuvah. For two thousand years, the Jewish people have rejected the Gospel and wandered the earth away from Jesus.

There is a great mystery in that God has set up the Age as a sacred Hebrew year. The autumn represents the season of repentance. And the fact that the season of repentance comes at the end, signifies that the time of Jewish repentance, their return to God and Jesus, will only happen at the end of the age.

Just as the Hebrew year waits for the Jewish people to repent, in order to conclude, so the entire age and creation is waiting for the return of the Jewish people to their Messiah.

It will surely come in God’s appointed time, and when it does, so too will come Jesus and redemption to the world. So never stop praying for the Jewish people, or their redemption.

The same for your life, never stop seeking God or the blessing He has for you. God’s promises are good, and they will come in their appointed time. And when they do, you will know they were more than worth the wait.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May those who love you be secure. Psalm 122:6

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for the day that God’s ancient people will say “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.”

Walk daily with God at your side!

Price

20 Jan

Price…

When you buy something you pay at least what you think that thing is worth or you wouldn’t buy it. You might pay less for it if you’re getting a bargain, but nobody pays more than what they think it’s worth.

When looking at Calvary, you see nail pierced hands. The King of Kings left His throne to dwell with us and be the ultimate price for sin, past, present and future. Yeshua paid for you with His own life.

He came down to rescue us as we could not save ourselves of our own sinful nature. Thus He loves you more than He loves His own life!! Love Him more than your own life – even more, love others more than your own life.

For God so loved YOU that the price was Himself so that you would live your life in a way that was worthy of the price He paid. A life worthy… of the life of God.

This is what the LORD says: “Maintain justice and do what is right, for my salvation is close at hand and my righteousness will soon be revealed. Isaiah 56:1

You have been bought with the price of God’s own life. Now live today a day and a life worthy of that purchase.

Walk daily with God at your side!

The Dance Of The Heavenly Circles

19 Jan

The Dance Of The Heavenly Circles…

Count out one second. You can do it by saying, “One-one thousand.” As soon as you said that, you travelled 140 miles. That’s because the planet you’re on is connected to the sun, and the sun and the planets are travelling 140 miles around the center of the Milky Way every second.

Try it again. One-one thousand. By the time you said that and by the time you get to the end of this sentence, you will have travelled about half a thousand miles from where you were when you started to say one-one thousand! And you’ll never go back there.

You only travel in one direction. And every second you are 140 miles farther away from ever being where you were before. So it is in your life and your walk. You may be able to visit an old school or home from your past. But the truth is you can never go back. You see, we are journeying not only through the galaxy, but through time and existence.

Therefore, whatever life you would live for the Lord, do it now. For you are on a journey. And you will never pass this way again.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17

Envision that perfected life for the Lord and do it today. Love more, be compassionate, help more, give more, be bold more for Him.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Remember No More

18 Jan

Remember No More…

God told His people to always remember the Exodus, how He saved them out of Egypt, how He split the sea in two, how He brought them to Sinai, and to the Promised Land. God told Israel to remember the Law He gave them.

It is holy to remember what God has done in our lives. But it is holy also to not remember when it comes to what man has done or not done in our lives. We are saved in the first place because God chooses not to remember.

It is written in Isaiah 43, “I will remember your sin no more.” We need to practice the holy act of not remembering. It’s not just that we forget. It is rather we choose to “remember no more.” It is not passive. It is an act of the will in God’s grace.

To remember no more means there is something there that can be remembered, but God chooses to specifically remember it not. So what that person did to you, it’s hard to forget. But you need to do what God did. You need to choose to remember it no more.

For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more. Hebrews 8:12

Today, forgive and forget all the wrongful things done to you. Choose to remember them no more but instead dwell on all the good God has done for you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Our Daily Bread

17 Jan

Our Daily Bread…

You might be saying you don’t have enough. I don’t have enough in my life: I don’t have enough money, time, and affection and never have enough anything. You have a lot of lack and you sometimes complain; you’re not satisfied.

What does the Bible say? The Lord’s Prayer says, “Give us this day our daily bread”. Do you have daily bread? Go to your kitchen; do you have bread for the day? Chances are you do; and not only that you’ve got more than that because you have weekly bread. You have enough for the week or even longer.

And yet the Bible says to pray just for daily bread. So if daily bread is sufficient in your life, then weekly bread is extra. Consider yourself blessed! If you’ve got daily bread, that’s blessing itself.

Many people don’t have that, but you’ve got bread beyond the day. Do you want to be blessed? Start giving thanks for what you have.

You got saved, you’re blessed; you got daily bread, and you’re blessed! You’re saved from hell, you’re blessed. Give thanks for all the blessings and you’ll have more than enough.

Give thanks in all circumstances;for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Live today in the realm of extra – take no blessing for granted but as a new and extra gift of God’s love.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Let It Roll

16 Jan

Let It Roll…

In Proverbs 16:17 it says, “The highway of the upright is to depart from evil, and he who watches his way preserves his life.” The highway of the upright, not the old country road departs from evil.

It says highway. What does that mean? That means fast! The highway of the upright is to depart from evil. To depart from evil; that’s a highway. It’s a fast track to God’s will, God’s joy, and God’s peace.

But the key is also when you depart from evil, do it as if you’re on a highway. When you depart from that temptation, don’t do it slowly, don’t play around with it, don’t entertain it, don’t have a long drawn-out talk with it; run from it.

Do like Joseph did. Run and get away from it immediately! As soon as that thing comes up, that questionable thing, situation or indulgence, get out of it, run out of there!

As soon as it starts, get on the highway and floor the peddle! You don’t want to leave sin slowly as if on an old dirt road; you leave it in a hurry on the highway of the upright.

Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Proverbs 3:7-8

Ask God to reveal any sin in your life, and flee from it fast – get on God’s fast track.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Say to This Wall

15 Jan

Say to This Wall…

A pastor prayed and asked God to remove the Berlin Wall which stood for many years dividing Germany into communist and non-communist and nothing happened.

He felt he should continue claiming the Word, “You shall speak to the mountain and the mountain shall be removed.” He went and spoke to the Berlin wall, “Be removed!”

Nothing happened! Again, he prayed and his heart heard God, “I didn’t just say only you.” So, he went back to the Berlin wall with a bunch of other believers, they agreed, prayed and spoke, “Be removed wall!” A week later, the Berlin wall fell. I’m not saying it’s just because of that, but there is power in prayer and in faith.

God wants you to have faith with chutzpah! That’s the Hebrew word for courage with boldness, chutzpah. There are big walls, big problems and big obstacles to God’s will so believers need to have big faith. You need to have courage faith.

God wants you to go up to that wall, go up to that problem that’s not his will and say, “Be thou removed!” In God, speak to mountains and make that wall come tumbling down.

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7

Take authority and in the name of Messiah speak to your fear, your lust whatever problem that is keeping you from God’s will.

Walk daily with God at your side!

The Forked Tongue

14 Jan

The Forked Tongue…

The Hebrew word for serpent or snake is nahash. It sounds like someone is whispering, nahash, nahash. The word for snake also means the whisperer, nahash.

In the Bible, the serpent is the symbol of the enemy. The enemy is a whisperer; he works in a subtle crafty way, in secret, in the darkness. The work of the enemy begins with a whisper.

A thought comes into your mind and you’re wondering, “How did that happen?” He doesn’t say it out loud. He whispers a little thing, a little idea. If you go with that, the whisper becomes a sin.

The whisper becomes an action; the action becomes a habit, the habit a lifestyle and the lifestyle a destiny. How do you fight the enemy? You fight him when that thing is just a notion, a whisper or a temptation.

That thing comes in, that whisper of anger, that whisper of lust, that whisper of doing what you know is wrong, you fight it. Drown it out when you hear that little word of temptation. Speak the Word of God and you will drown out the whisperer.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5

Today fight sin when it’s just a whisper, a thought, a notion. Drown it out at the beginning.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Gravity Free Living

13 Jan

Gravity Free Living…

Are you burdened down with problems, worries, fears, a million issues? You think, if I get rid of the problems I’ll get rid of the burdens. No. This world has problems, but there’s a secret of how to live a burden-free life.

The problem isn’t the problem; it’s the weight, the gravity, that’s the problem. We’re to be living in the heavenlies. We’re not of this world. If you go into the heavenlies, that thing won’t weigh anything anymore.

There’s no more gravity. Get your life away from the earthly. Don’t be bound by the gravity of this world. Live in the spirit. Dwell in the heavenlies. Get your eyes and mind off the problem. Get your eyes on God and refresh yourself in the heavenly places.

Rejoice in heavenly treasures and you’ll find yourself free from the gravity of the world. You might have the problem but it won’t weigh anything anymore. He said, “My yoke is easy, my burden is light.”

Dwell with the Lord in the heavenlies and your burdens will become light. It all begins when you begin to dwell in the heavenly places and away from gravity.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30

Stay continually today in the Lord’s presence. Dwell with your Saviour and rejoice you are no longer weighed down.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
