HE LIFTS US UP: The Obedience of Mary

Obedience…
it’s my thought for the day.
The obedience of Mary…
how many would have that today?

To hear from God…
with a specific instruction.
Knowing in man’s eyes…
it would be character destruction.

To be visited by an angel…
with a reply, “Thy Will be done.”
Knowing the penalties of that day…
possible stoned or at least shunned.

And how about her family…
how realistic did they believe.
To know their child was pregnant…
claiming miraculously conceived. Continue reading

Awaiting A Heavenly Reunion

Philippians 3 20 21

A week ago my Bible study group got together one last time to say goodbye to our leader before he and his family moved down south to Texas for a career opportunity. It was a bittersweet gathering. On the one hand it made my heart happy to know his family was making the best decision for their future, but on the other hand I knew I would miss them something terrible. When the military first relocated us to Erie, Pennsylvania, USA my husband and I didn’t know anyone. By divine intervention, we met each person in our small group. Our Bible study leader and his family connected with us immediately because of the loss and grief we both shared in trying to expand our families. Together our small group has shared testimonies, lifted up prayers, broken bread, kept accountability, studied God’s Word, endured hardships, carried burdens, celebrated blessings, worshipped and praised the living and Almighty God, and enjoyed sweet fellowship. As a military spouse, I have to say goodbye to dear friends often as my family moves about the country from place to place. I take comfort in knowing that someday my Christian friends and I will all be together again in heaven as fellow citizens with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Continue reading

Nuggets – Sit Still

Sit Still
“Then said she, Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall: for the man will not be in rest, until he have finished the thing this day.” (Ruth 3:18)

This was the instruction given to Ruth by Naomi in hopes that her kinsman, Boaz, would be willing to perform his family duty and marry Ruth, whose Jewish husband had died in Moab. Ruth’s behavior had been honorable, and she had done what she could to let Boaz know she was willing to be his wife, but now she could do nothing except to sit still and wait.

This lesson needs to be remembered by Christians today. All too often we rush ahead of the Lord, fearful that things won’t work out unless we take matters into our own hands. When the Jews were being invaded by the Assyrian armies and felt they needed an alliance with Pharaoh, God warned: “The Egyptians shall help in vain, and to no purpose: therefore have I cried concerning this, Their strength is to sit still. . . . In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength” (Isaiah 30:7-15).

Long before, when the children of Israel were in even more desperate circumstances, with the Egyptian armies pursuing them and the Red Sea in front of them, Moses had said: “Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD” (Exodus 14:13). Soon, Pharaoh’s chariots were at the bottom of the sea, just as, in due time, Boaz did marry Ruth, and as, 600 years later, the hosts of the Assyrians were slain by the angel of the Lord (Isaiah 37:36).

There is, certainly, a time to work—and work hard—in the service of the Lord. There are spiritual battles to be fought and races to be run. But when we have done the best we know how, according to the Scriptures, and still don’t see the answer, there comes a time when we must simply sit still, and wait for the Lord. He would have us “be still, and know that [He is] God” (Psalm 46:10). HMM

SIH’s Think On These Things: Ephesians 6:5b

SIH TOTT ICON

“Reflections Of His Grace”
“That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in [his] kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.”

 

 

The Grace Of Authority/Submission (6:1-9)

Eph 6:1-9 KJV
Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.

What does it mean to defile the Temple of God which is your body?

I walked into the computer store a while back and asked the owner (who is also a pastor of a Church) what it mean’t to defile the Temple of God. I then quoted the verse. Bob (the owner of the computer store) asked me if it was a trick question and I responded, “No”. Here’s the verse I quoted,

1 Cor 3:16-17…Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

The verse reads that Christian’s are the Temple of God and the Temple is holy. The reason Christian’s are the Temple of God is because the Spirit of the living God dwells within them. Paul went on to say if any man defile that Temple, him shall God destroy. The Temple is holy and the Christian’s body is the Temple.

I then asked Bob the question, “What does it mean to defile the Temple”? Bob replied, “Perhaps it has something to do with what you eat or how you dress”. Then he said, “I’m not sure”. He then asked me what I thought and I still wouldn’t answer. The only thing I said was, “The Temple is holy and your body is the Temple”. The big question mark floated in the air.

About that time a customer walked in and Bob (a Church of God pastor) said ask this gentleman the question as he is a dear Baptist preacher. So when the gentleman walked in the store I quoted the verse again and asked him the same question that I asked Bob. The Baptist preacher responded, a similar answer to the answer Bob gave about dress and food. Then I quoted the verse again and said the verse reads that Christian’s are the Temple of the Holy Spirit and their bodies are holy.

The clothes we wear don’t make us dirty. The dishes we eat from don’t make us dirty. The food we eat doesn’t make us dirty either. Defilement is caused from sin, the sin nature, and/or sinful conduct. If any man defiles the Temple that God made a holy place, this man knows what he did in opposition to God. Did you know that if a child of God sins against God, that man “willfully chose to commit an act of sin? Sin is a violation to the Law of God. Sin is a choice. Sin is not ignorance! Sin is a direct violation to the way that God wants His holy children to live. If a Christian defiles the Temple (that is holy by the Grace of God) God’s Judgment is placed upon that soul. There remaineth no more sacrifice for that sin.

Heb 10:26-27…For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation,

Defilement of the Temple shows the believer’s accountability to a God of Judgment. Christian’s know how to act and behave because they have a holy heart. Sin will defile the Temple of God which God made Holy. Sin makes the Temple and unholy place. God’s holiness is no longer there. When the Spirit comes in sin has to go. When sin comes in the Spirit will go. That’s why the Bible says to “grieve not the Holy Spirit” and to “quench not the Spirit”. Quench means to extinguish!

Here’s how Jesus described defilement that comes out of man.

Mark 7:20-23… And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

That day I stirred those two preachers. The Bible confirmed an answer in this writers heart. That’s why I share these Blogs with you brothers and sisters! God writes this stuff in the memory of my heart and mind. His Word confirms the truth in my life. I accepted holiness of heart from day one as I heard a preacher preach it. I studied the Bible for years and found no contradiction to the teaching of holiness. The Bible tells me so. Glory! I preach against sin and take a stand for holiness because God is Holy. The Bible says Christian’s are holy too! That’s why Paul said our bodies are the Temple of God,

1 Cor 6:19-20…What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

What is man?

Man is made up of (3) parts. Spirit, soul, and body. Mans being is physical, spiritual, and eternal. Without Christ the make-up of man is without hope and destined for eternal punishment.

The Holy Spirit was sent down from Heaven to reveal human doubt. The doubting conscience of man can be turned away from lawlessness and rebellion…by the Spiritual presence of a living Christ. The ministry of the Holy Spirit causes fallen men to believe, surrender, and understand Christ.

The soul of man is man’s power to choose and decide. When you take doubt away men can believe enough to find Eternal Salvation by faith. Saving Faith can be maintained or lost as the soul of man unites or separates from the presence of a living Christ who saves, redeems, forgives, and sanctifies. the witness of God is greater than the natural witness of men.
