WAY OF THE LIVING GOD

WAY OF THE LIVING GOD
from Barbara's Bible

“Which #way should I go?”  Is that a question you are contemplating now?  We have been #sheltering in place with our options very limited.  Your #path may lead from bed to bath to food to couch to tv which is a very limiting existence !  Are you looking up or down these days?  Look around and you may experience a new way of life.  For instance, I heard the birds singing and saw a deer run down my driveway and in the evening, I was amazed by the magnificent full moon.  All God’s creation.   I have observed many more walkers and the exercise is good, but while on their way do they know God’s Way?  Isaiah 2:5 signage “Come let us walk in the light of the LORD”   “LORD will teach us of HIS WAY and we will walk in His paths” Is.2:3  God’s word also says, “Rebellious people and lying children who will not hear the law of the LORD, but listen to smooth speaking prophesies of deceit must get out of their way – turn aside for the Holy One of Israel” Is.30:9-11   “Thomas asked, Lord how can we know the way?  John 14:5,6  “Jesus said, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: no one comes to the Father but by ME.”  Are you going God’s Way?

WRITING OF THE LIVING GOD

WRITING OF THE LIVING GOD
from Barbara's Bible

Do you #treasure hand #written #cards, #notes, #letters from important people in your life?  Do you hold on to them and reread those words to feel the presence and being of the writer of that written word?  I admit I do!  Would you like to read or reread the words that are the writings of the Living God?   “GOD gave Moses two tables of testimony on tables of stone, WRITTEN WITH THE FINGER OF GOD.  Exodus 31:18  “the two tablets were written on both sides…and the TABLETS WERE THE WORK OF GOD and THE WRITING WAS THE WRITING OF GOD GRAVEN UPON THE TABLETS” Exodus 32:15,16  Let’s read:      

You shall have no other gods before me.             

You shall not make for yourself an idol.

You shall not take the name of the LORD your GOD in vain.

Remember the sabbath day to keep it holy

Honor your father and your mother

You shall not murder

You shall not commit adultery

You shall not steal

You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor

You shall not covet        Exodus 20:3-17  

“Incline our hearts, O Lord, to keep this thy law

 

BLOOD OF THE LIVING GOD

BLOOD OF THE LIVING GOD
from Barbara's Bible

There is #power in the #blood.  Blood is  the fluid in our body that circulates nourishment to all parts of the body and carries away waste products.  Yes, life is in the blood and the blood is life giving.  I am impressed with the doctors that are using donated blood from survivors of the COVID/19 virus and using the plasma antibodies to heal others.  Jesus Christ was tortured and gave His blood on the cross of death for our healing redemption.  “In Christ we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace” Eph. 1:7  Just think about the healing cleansing power of Jesus Christ’s blood that he sacrificed for us to live eternally with Him in glory if we turn to the great physician and ask Him into our life.  “For this is My blood … which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”  Matt.26:28  Claim the healing power of Jesus Christ blood donation for you!  “To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood.” Rev.1:5  Are you tired of isolation?  Walk ….If we walk in the light as GOD Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.”  1John 1:7   The great physician  has eternal healing power in His blood.! 

THE LIVING GOD CARES

THE LIVING GOD CARES
from Barbara's Bible

“Who cares” is a comment I have heard from some individuals or those who do not even care about themselves!  As I observe today’s society I see the  #internet, #television, #entertainment, and yes, #politics all revolving around the same theme – “Me, Me, Me”  These speeches sound like utopia; however, one size does not fit all.  Everyone of us wants to feel that someone cares about our existence .  Present population is so involved with the moment of instant gratification that they find it difficult to see beyond their own nose.  They might donate to a go fund me account which may or may not be legitimate, but do not speak to the person next to them.  Look around you  Do you know or see a person who cares about you and others?  I see caring individuals who proclaim Jesus Christ as their Savior and portray Him through an example of walking in His way.  The Bible tells us how much GOD cares for us individually yet we possess many different personalities, temperaments, abilities, disabilities and circumstantial needs!  When we ask GOD not the latest gadget to direct our life, He will deliver with a care package filled with grace.  Now is the time to take all your concerns and give them to the Lord.  “Casting all your care upon Him, for THE LIVING GOD CARES FOR YOU” 1Peter5:7     Right now “GOD CARES”

THE LIVING GOD IS TRUE

THE LIVING GOD IS TRUE
from Barbara's Bible

Have you ever taken a #test in which you #answer with one word either #true or #false? Living day to day we have so many #questions to answer with multiple choices; however, after much contemplation most come down to a true/false conclusion. Complex yet simple statements such as… Do you love me? Did you lie? We can rationalize over many of the answers or choices we make in our lifetime. Some of our answers affect us that day while others are life changing. There is one answer that has eternal consequences! You choose ….True …or ,,,,False. “We know that the Son of God is come, and has given us an understanding that we may know Him that is true even in His Son Jesus Christ. THIS IS THE TRUE GOD AND ETERNAL LIFE” 1John 5:20 What is your answer? Will it be true or false?

THE LIVING GOD CLEANSES

THE LIVING GOD CLEANSES
from Barbara's Bible

What thoroughly cleanses? Can any product completely remove #spots, #stains, #smells, or #dirt? Whether it is on our body, clothes, bedding, or dwelling, we all have problem areas. Whether it is caused by simple day to day activities or from an unexpected storm in our life, we need assistance with cleansing. Accidents, sickness, pests, and yes, even wrong choices can make cleaning up a mess beyond our ability! We see many ads which promote products, doctors, pills, or lawyers who claim solutions to your problem. Many may help, but can they remove it? Let us read 1John 1-10 “From the beginning we have heard and seen…the Word of Life..we write this to you that your joy maybe full….if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another and THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST, SON OF GOD THE FATHER CLEANSES US FROM ALL SIN. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, GOD is faithful and just to forgive us and CLEANSES US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.” Now that is a deep cleansing that lasts for eternity! Time to have joyful thankfulness for a mortal body that has been CLEANSED BY THE LIVING GOD JESUS CHRIST.

MEASURING ROD OF THE LIVING GOD

MEASURING ROD OF THE LIVING GOD
from Barbara's Bible

Do you have a #measuring rod – #tape measure – #yard stick? If you plan to build or reconstruct a structure, you need proper measurements. I have a back porch deck built with pressure treated wood that was only a few years old when it started to dry rot. After contacting the lumber company, they replaced the wood. Then I had to secure at least three bids for the job. Finding the right contractor to rebuild the deck is a matter of common sense, their bid, and prayer for me. Today the builders came at 8:30, but earlier I had been reading the Bible and Johnathan Cahn’s “The Book of Mysteries” on the Angelic Measuring Rod. In Ezekiel 40 ‘He had a vision of a man who appeared like brass with a line of flax and a measuring rod in his hand as he measured the wall outside the house and also the porch, the posts, the arches’. How about that..how the Lord has Angels with measuring vessels used to rebuild the Temple and Jerusalem ! Now my deck does not compare but I felt like those two builders while measuring every board before installation were a beautiful angelic picture of God’s plan of precise measurements not only for the deck, but in me personally. God has given us a building plan through His Word, but it is up to us to pay heed to the diagram by using His Measuring Rod. My prayer is that I will follow God’s plans in my life by using His measuring rod for solid stable construction.. Rev. 11:l .”There was given a reed like a rod; and the angel stood, saying Rise and Measure the temple of God and the altar and those that worship there” Any of you have some dry rot in your life that needs replacing by the LIVING GOD ?

THE WILL OF GOD

THE WILL OF GOD
from Barbara's Bible

In times like these, how do you know the #WILL of #GOD? With all the #political bickering saying ‘he said or she said’ about unconfirmed statements concerning our established heads of state, we need to turn to God and His Word for clarity. 1Peter 2:13-17″Submit yourselves to every regulation of man for the King, as supreme; or governors, …..for so is the WILL OF GOD that with well doing you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: as free not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as servants of God. Honor all men -Love brotherhood – Fear God – Honor the king.” We need to hope and wait according to Romans 8:24-27 “The Spirit of God helps our infirmities: we do not know what we should pray, but the Spirit makes intercession for the saints according to THE WILL OF GOD with groaning which cannot be uttered .” Today we have fighting and wars among our leaders yet James 4 tells us “Do you think scripture is in vain when it says – The spirit that is in us lusts because of envy?…Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and He shall lift you up….There is one lawgiver who is able to save and to destroy….What is your life? It is a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes. We ought to say, ‘IF THE LORD WILL, WE SHALL LIVE” I am brought back to life’s brevity when I hear Hal Lindsey close his broadcast with this phrase, “God willing I will see you next week” Paul wrote in Galatians 1:3,4 “Grace and peace to you from God the Father and from our Lord Jesus Christ who gave himself for our sins that He might deliver us from this present evil world according to THE WILL OF GOD OUR FATHER.”
