NEW LIFE: A MONTH OF VERSES: JANUARY 16, 2017

VERSE: “For he who finds me finds life and obtains favor from the LordBut he who sins against me injures himself; all those who hate me love death.” (Proverbs 8:35-36)

FORMULA: If you follow after everyone else and ignore God then it is on you. Q.E.D.

ACTION: Life is full of choices that are as plan as day. Every aspect of life requires personal decision, but for some reason, matters of the soul are purposefully ignored. Take action now: decide NOW - DO YOU WANT ETERNAL LIFE, WITH TRUE PEACE AND JOY STARTING NOW, ALONG WITH THE FAVOR OF GOD? IF SO - JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY TO SALVATION. REBEL AGAINST HIM, YOU CHOOSE ETERNAL SEPARATION AND HELL.

PRAYER: Oh Most Kind and Good God, You gave man the best of everything when You created Him in the Garden yet he made the wrong choice bringing sin, death and destruction in the world. Lord, we know most will not choose You, on this side of Eternity even though the warnings are stark and EVERYWHERE, but Lord, we pray for those who do, that we may humbly come before the Throne of Grace, seeking deliverance and continued intervention in our daily lives, that we may find FAVOR and mercy, and grace, love and the compassion You alone can offer. Father, Lord we come. We have found life, true life, IN YOU. We need no other. We pray for those who rebel against You that they may see the light before it is too late for them. Grant us continued Favor, oh Lord, as we pursue You in Spirit and in Truth, through Jesus Christ the King, amen.

NEW LIFE: A MONTH OF VERSES: JANUARY 15, 2017

VERSE: "Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my doorposts". Proverbs 8:34 

FORMULA: Being alert + Standing in the Doorway of Hope (Petah Tikvah) = Direct Line to Divine Wisdom

ACTION: Christianity is the only intellectual Faith system, where logic, reason AND hope reside.Therefore, by following the admonitions of Yahweh to take up residence, at His Tent of Meeting DAILY, like a Mezuzah on your doorposts, we gain direct access to His Holy Temple...from where DIRECT blessings flow constantly from His Hand and Magnificent Heart!

PRAYER: Great Father in Heaven, what a wonderful, gracious and powerful God You are. There is none like You! From everlasting to everlasting YOU ARE GOD! Your love for Your children goes beyond amazing as You invite us to come visit You, test You, find You True and then watch and marvel at what You will do next! This is life altering. This is beyond comprehension. This is too good for words. Father, we love, praise, magnify, adore, worship, bless, lift up, glorify and sing of Your Love forever, to the Praise and Glory of the Great King of the Universe - the Lord Jesus, forever and forever, amen and amen!

NEW LIFE - A MONTH OF VERSES: JANUARY 14, 2017


VERSE: "For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known" 1 Corinthians 13:12

FORMULA: If the Divine Equation somewhat incomprehensible now, then wait until Glory for the "WOW"!

ACTION: Faith is complete trust with our spiritual hearts, which have been reborn by the Spirit of God. Heaven is so much more, don't let the shadow of this world cloud the Incredible picture, which lies ahead...just above the Horizon!


PRAYER: Great Father in Heaven, Creator and the Power behind ALL things, we are so grateful that this corrupt world is not ALL that there is, Lord. We are so eternally, and we mean eternally, thankful - humbled - blown away and stunned that You would even give us a representation of what lies ahead for us. And it is not just a glimpse of the Divine Majestic Kingdom of God, but it is a personal confirmed reservation You have booked for us who have believed, obeyed, repented and trusted Jesus Christ as Lord and Master of our lives. Thank You, dear God! We look forward to that Day, Face (Yours) to face (ours) when we see you in living color, as real as the sun rising in the east every day. For this truth, this very truth, we are amazed  and pray, in Jesus' Mighty Name amen.

NEW LIFE - A MONTH OF VERSES: JANUARY 13, 2017

VERSE: "Righteous are You, O LORD, that I would plead my case with You; Indeed I would discuss matters of justice with You: Why has the way of the wicked prospered? Why are all those who deal in treachery at ease?" (Jeremiah 12:1)

FORMULA: If God chooses that some prosper, then let it be of no concern to us.

ACTION: Even in a fallen world, the grace of the Good Lord falls on the Just (Christians) AND the unjust (the majority of the Lost and dying world). From the beginning of time, evil men (and women) have prospered and become even wealthier than the people of Yahweh, who most times scratch and claw for a living. Our role - to accept what God has given us, to strive to do better without sinning against Him and our fellow man and finally to TRUST HIM completely for even the parking spot we lose at the top of the line at the grocery store parking lot.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, we know that YOUR ways are not our ways. We know that You work all things to those who love God and follow You, in full trust and obedience. Lord we cannot explain why bad people seem to be the wealthiest, and loudest and even the most obnoxious, but help us to be like the Apostle Paul, our role model. He knew what was like to be hungry, cold, poor and persecuted and at times, he was well fed and warm. In all things, Paul trusted fully in You, seeing the reward ahead and the true riches of Christ which are not of this world.  We know You will deal righteously as Jesus said of the rich man who was in hell while the beggar Lazarus was in paradise. He was not in hell because he was rich, but because he lived his own way all his life, ignoring You. Lord help us to understand this day that the best thing we can do is pay attention to our own souls and those around us, and then let You, our one True God of Heaven and Earth, take care of the rest, in Jesus' Strong Name, amen.

NEW LIFE - A MONTH OF VERSES: JANUARY 12, 2017

VERSE: "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)

FORMULA: The Promise, if heeded is greater than the Fear, Cares and Stresses of this World.

ACTION: Fear of the unknown AND the known destruction, depression and devastation out there is too real and pervasive. It takes focused Faith to overcome this. Start now. BELIEVE....believe and receive, for God has not given us a spirit of Fear, but His Spirit of Faith in Christ.

PRAYER: Most Gracious Good and Heavenly Father, in the Name of Your Son Jesus, I believe Your promises to me, from Your Holy Word, to never leave nor forsake me. I receive this Truth, as intended, and embed it completely in my own spirit, that the Knowledge of Your Love, Care and Plans for me are greater than the arrows, darts and evil of this world. I submit to the Lordship of Christ in my Life so that He can fight ALL my battles while I trust fully in Him. I surrender ALL to Him, all to Him I freely give in worship, in spirit and in Truth, to the Praise and Glory of the Lord of Heaven's Armies, from Whom ALL blessings flow, Amen and amen.

NEW LIFE - A MONTH OF VERSES: JANUARY 11, 2017

VERSE(S): Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. (Romans 5:3-5)

EQUATION: Life is this Equation: Suffering + Pain + Perseverance (minus)- Self-pity = Godly Character

ACTION: Human suffering is not easy to explain because it was brought on before most humans ever alive were born. It was created by SIN in the Garden of Eden, by Adam and Eve. The key here is Perseverance. Because we, who are Christians have Faith and Hope, we also have the capacity to stay faithful to God and TRUST HIM. This is exactly what we must do - say like Job in Chapter 13:15 "Though He slay me, I will trust in Him". Difficult? Yes. Impossible? No!

PRAYER: Father, You have promised to be with us, no matter what from now until the End of time. In our time of greatest need, we pray You will prove Yourself strong and mighty for us. We know the answer to suffering and sickness, destruction and death, sometimes is staggering silence. When that happens Lord, remind us that at those times, it is our cue for complete 100% TRUST in Your plan, purposes and power because we cannot see the end from the beginning as You can. Remind us of the reward also, dear heavenly Father, of being true to You, all the days of our Lives, in Jesus' Strong Name we pray, amen.

NEW LIFE - A MONTH OF VERSES: JANUARY 10, 2017

VERSE: “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1)

EQUATION: JESUS + THE CROSS = LIBERATION

ACTION: We instinctively know, from the Power of the Holy Spirit testifying in and through us, that the same God Who called us onto Himself for salvation and sanctification, will complete and finish what He started. He will do this until the day of Redemption. This fact alone is liberating for the Christian. His salvation freed us from living CAPTIVE to the bondage of sin and its evil by-products of death and destruction. Satan has absolutely, positively NO hold on us! He is defeated because Jesus is more than just the Savior of the World, He is the Great Emancipator! So, let's live as we are supposed to be - free from bondage, free from Satan's hold on us...and free at last, free at last, great God Almighty, Jesus made us FREE at last!

PRAYER: In The Mighty Name of Jesus, the King of Kings and the Lord of all things, we thank You, oh Great God of Heaven for Your Eternal plan of Redemption, Restoration and Reconciliation. We thank You that You looked down on the sad story state of ALL Mankind and decided to rescue us by Your Son's sacrificial atonement on the Cross which freed us from Satan, the Adamic Nature and ultimately saved us from ourselves!! You saved ME from myself, oh God! There is nothing greater to any of Your disciples and followers than to realize just how liberating the Gospel, the True Truth, the Word of God in each of our lives. Help us to not just completely grasp this but to embed it in our souls that we may not fall short daily, before You. Father, to You be all the Power and Glory and Honor, now and forever more, in Jesus' Strong Name amen.

NEW LIFE - A MONTH OF VERSES: JANUARY 9, 2017

VERSE: For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6)


FORMULA: If God is the originator of something, He seems it through. Q.E.D. (Quod Erat Demonstrandum - That which has already been proven)

ACTION: The verse explains itself. Our part in the equation is simple - yet sober and difficult without commitment and perseverance. We have to cooperate with Him. Without our acknowledgment of His Lordship over our lives, sanctification to the high standards He set, will be either slow or almost non-existent, since we do grow even if by a centimeter. Trust and obey, because there is no other way,

PRAYER: Oh most kind and gracious God in Heaven, creator of all heaven and earth and as Charles Wesley says He Who loves our souls, we repent this day for having fallen short in our reaction to that to which You have called us in Your and Grace to us. First of all, Lord, thank You for calling me to Your side. Thank You for sending the Ancient of Days to sacrifice His Life for the forgiveness of my vile sins. Thank You for saving me and sticking with me through this process of drawing me even closer. Thank You that as time is fleeting, You still call me, and all Who will listen to come to the Knowledge of You so much so that it will mold and transform our lives into what You would have us be and what you created us to be, Father, we cry out for Your longsuffering and mercy as we grow more and more into the Image of Your Dear Son, so we will not be ashamed on that Day, to the Praise and Glory of His Name, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, amen and amen.

NEW LIFE - A MONTH OF VERSES: JANUARY 8, 2017

VERSE: For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate. (Romans 7:15)

EQUATION: Sin plus human nature plus opportunity is greater than our sanctified walk sometimes.

ACTION: Just as a Christian can make foolish and unwise choices, as we saw yesterday, Christians may also either slip up thinking by getting distracted and deceived by sin. Also, some can promise God never to cuss again, as an example, and then let an expletive fly if one of us gets cut off by a careless driver. Instead of reacting to the human side of us, let us buckle down to control emotions and actions - no matter how much we think we are missing out. It is the RIGHT thing to do!

PRAYER: Almighty Father, Ruler of Heaven and Earth, we are truly sorry for slipping up time and time again, even after we promised to not go "there"; or to watch our tempers, or tongues etc. We do not purposefully set out to sin but as the Apostle Paul above, says in Romans 7:15, the exact same thing he hated doing, is the same thing he went ahead and did anyway. Father, we repent right now and ask Your forgiveness.  Lord we know we can't walk the sanctified and holy life without You. So we ask now, not just for Your Grace in 2017, in abundance, but a growing Maturity to control EVERY aspect of our Christian walk that we both may not sin against You, but that we may easily discern a potential danger, avoid it and defeat it instead of giving into it. We ask for Your Strength and Your Power to defeat these sneak attacks, in Jesus' Holy Name, amen.
