THE LIVING GOD #TRUTH

#Lies, lies and more lies seem to be filling our air ways today!  How can you decern #truth from error?   I was an only child, yet I had a very large extented family of aunts, uncles, and cousins who exchanged eventful encounters via conversations over meal time get-togethers.  One such episode about me, I heard repeated too many times!  At the age of  three,  I  had been playing in the backyard with my three cousins when I came into the kitchen to ask my aunt for some water.  She said, ” what are y’all playing?”  I proceeded to fill her in…”Well, you see, I am playing with a very large elephant that lets his trunk down for me to sit and then he puts me up on his back …so I really need some water!”  Aunt Hen looked at me and said, “Barbara Ruth, if you keep telling those whoppers the boogie man’s gonna get you!”  Without skipping a sip, I said, “I’ve told a bunch of um and he ain’t got me yet.”  No, not one of my crowing moments!   Family, friends, God and His Holy Word have tempered my heart to tell the truth. Col.3:9 “Do not lie to one another since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices”   Have you grown into a truthful individual that others can believe what you say?  Is it important to be a truthful person?  Just as men swear an oath to confirm their truth, God desires to show His heirs the unchangeable purpose guaranteed by His oath recorded in Heb. 6:16-20 “It is IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO LIE “   Lessons I learned as a child are even more vital today when lies and truth are hidden by the cold blooded evil serpent twisting good for evil.  Who can you trust that is telling the truth?  Ps.119:160 “GOD’S WORD IS TRUTH”  Deut.32:3,4 “I will proclaim (publish) the name of the LORD:  ascribe greatness unto our God.  HE is the Rock, His work is perfect:  for all His ways are judgment:  GOD of TRUTH and without iniquity, JUST and RIGHT IS HE.”

Today, we come to the very #LastWords of #Jesus on the cross.  But, thankfully they are not the last words Christ would speak on Earth.  What can these words teach us about how to live?  How to die?  What does this phrase have to do with a Hebrew bedtime prayer?  How does our relationship to God, the Father, affect our outlook on death?  How do we get a relationship with God (through Jesus Christ, His Son)?

THE LIVING GOD #PRESERVES

#October 2, 2016 the #United #Nations takes control of the #internet replacing the #United #States authority!….What is that to you?  Observe…#Find#Bible#Truth was reaching hundreds in #Russia and #China, but now – not one!  2Peter1:12  “I shall remind you even though you already know – you have been established in the truth which is present with you”.   Is the Bible being blocked on the internet by the prince of the airways, Satan?  If I did not known Jesus Christ as my savior, Satan’s constant germinal infiltration would destroy my life.  Simon Peter said in 2Peter, “Those who have received a faith the same kind as ours by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ see His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to lifepartakers of divine nature...if these qualities are yours, you will not be useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  Now I am talking about germs and Jesus / life and death.  What does that have to do with preserves?  As a young ministers’ wife living in our first parsonage next door to the church, the gracious farm women brought fresh green beans with canning jars to teach me how to preserve food by canning.  I still remember the feeling of the sustained high heat required to kill the germs  (we had no a/c in that Texas heat)  After removing the jars we would listen and count as each individual lid would pop as it sealed.   Preserving was finished when the germs were killed and the beans were sealed until the time of the feast.  If we can preserve beans, I know GOD CAN PRESERVE US.  Ps.97:10 “You that love the LORD, hate evil:  LORD PRESERVES the SOULS of HIS SAINTS;  HE DELIVERS THEM OUT OF THE HAND OF THE WICKED.”

As important as #Jesus Christ’s work was on the #cross, why is it important that the story doesn’t end there?  What was the gravity of the statement ‘It is finished’?  How do we know from His choice of words that this is not an expression of victimhood?  Has there ever been another person on Earth who accomplished everything that they set out to do?  How did this pertain to the traditional order of the priesthood and the sacrificial system?

The When of Worship

THE LIVING GOD #REREWARD/PROTECTION

#AWAKE . to the #TRUTH.  How many times do you hear a lie repeated until you believe it to be true?  Who or what is your #standard,#rereward, #protection?  Does it depend on the person talking?  Are you persuaded by smooth oratory, good looks, humor, argumentative shouts, scholarly research, or a skeptic?  I personally, use the Bible as my plumb line to keep things straight.  There is conflict between good and evil – the Living God (Truth) and Satan (Liar).   God gave us His Commandments for our own good showing us that there is liberty in law!  When the law is not observed we have chaos!  Everyone doing what is right in his own eyes.  57:20 “Wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace to the wicked, said my God”  Devil came to destroy..God came to save us from destruction. I’m still reading Isaiah 58 where truth spoke to me.  2.”They seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and did not forsake the ordinance of GOD; they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching God…9.”When you will call, the LORD shall answer; you shall cry, and He shall say, ‘HERE I AM.…11.LORD shall guide you continually. 8.God’s light shall break forth as the morning, and your health shall spring forth speedily; and thy righteousness shall go before you; the GLORY OF THE LORD SHALL BE YOUR REREWARD/PROTECTION”   Our law/justice and protection are connected to our LIVING GOD.

I don’t know how I missed it.  Somehow I got out of order on this series from Brother Tommy on the last words of #Jesus Christ.  Maybe I wanted to skip the darkest words he spoke from the cross.  But without these dark words, we cannot fully comprehend what was accomplished on that day.  Without these words could we truly grasp the suffering that Jesus faced by sacrificing Himself for us?  How does Jesus refer to God differently in this statement than so many other recorded times?  What does that tell us about the nature of God?
