ARE YOU IN THE WORLD OR OF THE WORLD ?

The word “World” comes from the Greek word Cosmos which means the established order of events or the establishment. Jesus said; “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. (John 15:18-20).”Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.” (1Corinthians 10:14,21).”I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” (John 17:14-16). This world is not our home we are just passing through. “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”(James 4:4) “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” (1John 2:15-18). “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”(Revelation 18:4). The Lord knows that you have to make a living and be in the world, but you don’t have to partake of the world and all the ungodliness and evil that is in it. Even Paul made tents for a time and reasoned with the Jews every Sabbath in the Synagogue until a couple of Disciples came down to were he was and he got convicted, of compromising and went to the Synagogue and told the Jews that Jesus was the Christ The Son Of God, READ Acts 18:1-6. It is a battle to not get sucked into this world and all of it’s deceptions. The devil is the prince of darkness and this world and is behind all the evil. “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”(Luke 4:5-8).”For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”(Ephesians 6:12). THIS WORLD IS THE DEVILS KINGDOM. Thank God Jesus Christ is coming to rescue us from this world in the Rapture which takes place after the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:29) , and before the 7 Vials of the wrath of God is poured out upon the earth. See our class on these chapters (Revelations 15-19). “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”(Romans 12:1-2).

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

FORSAKING ALL

“So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.”(Luke 14:33). This is what the King James Bible says very clearly, not like some of the revised perverted watered down versions inspired by the devil that says unless you sit down and count all your blessings and renounce them, you can’t be one of Jesus’s disciples. I have forsaken all myself before a few times, and I learned that forsaking all for Jesus is a lot more than just giving up your physical possessions and family and friends. It is giving up yourself and your own desires and putting Jesus and his will first in your life. It is easier to get you out of the world then to get the world out of you. Forsaking all is a daily process of becoming more like Jesus and less like you. Actually you will never completely forsake all until you go to be with Jesus and even then we will be learning and growing spiritually and becoming more like Jesus even in Heaven. “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.”(Romans 8:29).”He must increase, but I must decrease.”(John 3:30).”And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”(Matthew 19:29). You must never put people down who are not as dedicated as you, but try to lift them up to a new level. “He drew a circle that closed me out, but I drew a circle that brought him in. “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”(John 8:31-32).”And they straightway left their nets, and followed him. And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them. And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.”( Matthew 4:20-22). “And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.”(Matthew 9:9).”Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore? And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”(Matthew 19:27-29).”And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.”(Luke 9:23-24).”But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.”(Matthew 12:48-50).” Then there arose a reasoning among them, which of them should be greatest. And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a child, and set him by him, and said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great. And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us. And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, and sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village. And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God”( Luke 9:46-60). I hope this teaching helps you to have a deeper understanding of FORSAKING ALL There are many levels of Discipleship. There are 100%, 70%, 50% etc. Which are you? You are either a Missionary or a Mission Field. “What is that to thee, follow thou me.” (John 21:22b).

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

THERE IS A FAMINE COMING

“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land,
not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord:
and they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east,they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.” (Amos 8:11-12)


 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.”(John 9:4).

“For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.”(Isaiah 60:2).

” Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” (Revelation 12:12).

 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.”

 (Daniel 11:33-35).
“and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.”(Daniel 12:7b).


Never in the course of human history and conflict has so much of an opportunity been given to help so many, but so few choose to gain the ability to take on the challenge that has been set before them.

 
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” (Matthew 22:14).

Because few choose to be chosen.
You better hide the Word in your heart while you can by reading, and memorizing God’s Word. The time is coming when they will take it all away, and all you will have is what you memorized and hid in you heart.

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

THE GREAT COMMISSION

Have you Been Commissioned?

Do you know what the Great Commission is? It is the most important job in the whole world! We give honor and praise and credit to our Military, and Police, and Fireman, and rightfully we should, but did you know that God gives even more honor to people who take up their Cross daily and follow Jesus and preach the Gospel. The Great Commission is found in the Bible in (Mark 16:15) “Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” Beloved this is not a suggestion but a commandment from our Lord and Saviour, and King of Kings, Jesus Christ. And in fact you have been commissioned if you are reading this now, or if you have ever read this verse. Being commissioned by Jesus Christ is the most important job of all, and the most fulfilling, the most fun, and needed job of all with the highest rewards, that will last forever. All the things of this life are soon to pass and only what is done for Christ shall last. What are you going to do with your commission? We will soon see our commanding officer face to face. Will he say to you, “Well done thou good and faithful servant, enter thou into the Joy of thy Lord?”  I have been amazed lately how that the Lord has made it so easy to get the Gospel out into all the World. There have been missionaries who have given all their time, wealth, strength, and even their lives to bring the Gospel to the unreached. Lately the Lord has shown us how to reach the world in such places as India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam,Thailand, and many more unreached countries for only $7.00 for 2 -3 days and 2-3 teachings out of www.answersintheword.com. Also you get to pick 2 countries at a time. Just this month over 50 thousand people have been reached, and many have commented, in fact so many that we can’t even keep up with all of them. We send them a letter, encouraging them and inviting them to continue on in www.answersintheword.comso they can get the full true message and counsel of God. We like to reach the unreached first. We start out with the Salvation message to each country, which is the milk of the word they need first, if you would like to help in this Commission just let us know, and we will show you how social media can help, and it even goes out in their own language. “Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” (Matthew 9:36-38). “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” (John 9:4).

JESUS SAID; IF YOU LOVE ME FEED MY SHEEP. (John 21:16-17)

Say this prayer if you want to be saved; Jesus, I want to know you and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Savior. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.

HAVE YOU DONE THE WILL OF GOD ?

Has the Lord told you to do something, and you haven’t done it yet? Have you told the Lord you would do what he asked you to do?

Jesus said: “But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.” (Matthew 21:28-31).

Could these verses possibly be talking to you? Why not ask the Lord about it? ”And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” (Daniel 12:2-3). You don’t want to be ashamed when you get to Heaven every time you see Jesus and your other brothers and sisters because you didn’t do what the Lord told you to do, because you didn’t take the time.

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.” (2 Corinthians 5:10). It is better to get it right and done in this life than to have to explain it in the next. If you don’t do it the Lord will have to raise up somebody else to do what he told you to do and they will get your reward and the Crown. “Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.” (Revelation 3:11). “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith” TO YOU !(Revelation 2:17a) For more information about this IMPORTANT subject please read “ How to Find God’s Will” in www.answersintheword.com

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

“ORDINATION”

Jesus taught Ordination. “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. “ (John 15:16,) Jesus said, “For many are called but few are chosen.”

(Matthew 22:14 ).The reason why few are chosen is because few choose to be chosen and answer the Lords call on their lives. How about you? It boils down to how much do you love the Lord and lost souls ? You shouldn’t want to be ordained for the praise of man, or for self glory or money. “not with eyeservice, as men pleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;” (Ephesians 6:6). “How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?” (John 5:44). However being ordained can be an inspiration to you and can help open some doors for you to preach the Gospel and save souls. How long will you wait to pick up your cross ? “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.”(John 9:4). “But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” (Matthew 9:36-38). You don’t need four years of Cemetery , OH, Excuse me, I meant Seminary. “ Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. “( Acts 4:13). Jesus wants all saved Christians to preach the Gospel and be as great a witness as you can be. Be all you can be for Jesus. You can be ordained thru this ministry answeresintheword.com You need to be saved and you should at least memorize three verses found in these sections of the “Memory Verse Chart”, “Salvation”, You Can’t Loose Your Salvation”,The Holy Spirit”, Witnessing”,and agree with “Our Statement of Faith” (SEE attachments).

Some more verses on Ordination:

“Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.” (Psalms 8:2)

“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)

“And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach,” (Mark 3:14)

“And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.” (Acts 10:42)

“And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed.” (Acts 14:23)

Here is the GREAT COMMISON that Jesus gave to all his disciples. “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believe you died on the cross for my sins ,and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

SPEAK WITH BOLDNESS AND AUTHORITY !!!

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1). The Lord does not want us to be namby pamby, or wishy washy and lukewarm in our faith. “These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:14-16). So don’t be a lukewarm Christian ! “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4: 16). “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6). Bold faith is the kind of FAITH that pleases God ! A word of caution, “Men of force are Men of faults.” Just make sure that what you are saying is backed up by scriptures, then go ahead with all Boldness. SEE: the teaching on “Meekness” in http://www.answersintheword.com/living-for-jesus/meekness/ for a good balance on this teaching . “Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.” (Isaiah 45:11). This is a powerful scripture. The Lord tells us we can command him according to his WORD ! I always say “As you said Lord in your WORD to command you.” People will listen to you when you speak with Boldness and authority like Jesus did. Ask Jesus to fill you with the Holy Ghost and give you power to speak the WORD with all authority ! You have got to speak like you know what you are talking about if you want people to really listen to you and understand what you are saying. “And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,” (Acts 4:29). “Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child. But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord. Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.” (Jeremiah 1:4-10). So if you think you are just to weak, shy, timid, mild mannered, and just not strong enough, then you should read these verses and claim them, and act on them !

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.” (Acts 4:13).

And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.” (Acts 4:31).

and for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,” (Ephesians 6:19).

Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,” (Hebrews 10:19).

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.” (1John 4:17).

Never man spake like this man.” (John 7:46b).

And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.”(Matthew 7:28-29).

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

WE AIN’T SEEN NOTHIN YET !

“If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee,
then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?” (Jeremiah 12:5).
If you think things are rough now, well wait until we get to the Great Tribulation. But don’t worry 1 Corinthians 10:13 says; “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” We are going to escape right out of the Great Tribulation in the Rapture to Heaven with Jesus Christ the Only Begotten Son of God, before the Wrath of God is Poured upon the Earth !!! SEE: Our classes on Revelation Chapters 15-19, and Matthew 24. I wish we could get Raptured out of here before The Great Tribulation like most of the Churches teach, but it is not scriptural. “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:12-13). The money manipulators who try to control things behind the scenes with their false media will get worse and worse. These devils are ultimately controlled by the devil himself. “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.” (Luke 4:5-6). “Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” (Revelation 12:12b). Jesus will give you grace and strength for the hour of the trial and not before, so don’t worry about it. “looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin” (Hebrews 12:2-4). Many are saying today, ” Oh, times are so hard, I have to homeschool, and I can’t get enough money to pay for all my idols, and there is so much to have to worry about.” The Bible says; “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19). “And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.” (1 Timothy 6:8). And it doesn’t say designer clothing or raiment.


Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

The Cure for Corona Virus

“And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.” (Numbers 21:4-9). Jesus said; “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John3:14-15)

Many Doctors wear this symbol of a Brass serpent on a Staff to represent healing and that they are of the Healing profession.






Even though the people murmured and sinned against the Lord by complaining against Moses, Gods Prophet and Messenger, Moses still prayed for them and then God in his Mercy told Moses what to do to save the people. “but they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord arose against his people, till there was no remedy.” (2 Chronicles 36:16). This reminds me of how the people today (mostly the Democrats) mock and murmur about God’s Messenger, President Trump. Could this be one of the reasons why the Lord has allowed this pestilence and plague of Corona Virus ? I believe this judgment of God has descended upon the world and America because of this sin and others such as abortion which is going on one hundred million babies killed now, and many other sins. You know you can only push God so far until you make him angry, and you don’t want to do that. “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” (Hebrews 10:31). It’s time to wake up and look to Jesus to get right with God and live !

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen

Do you HOPE or Are you EXPECTING ?

Hope is an interesting Word. It is used in the King James English Bible. A popular verse of scripture is found in (1Corinthians 13:13) “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” The question that comes to me is, is Hope really certain? Does it sound like your sure about it, or are you just Hoping it is? In Hebrew the word Hope means you know that God will do something because he has done it before, and he can do it again. In Greek the word Hope means to Expect something to happen. What ever it is that you want to happen. Like Jesus said in (Mark 9:23) “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” Perhaps a better translation for the King James’s 70 scholars, which took them ten years to translate the King James Bible into English from Hebrew and Greek, would have been to use the word Expect or Expecting instead of Hope which sounds more poetical and grammatically appealing. Remember Jesus also said in (Mark 11:23) “For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” To me this sounds more solid and knowing and expecting and believing than Hoping. This expecting kind of faith is what pleases God more than just hoping what you pray for will happen. Like what it says in (Hebrews 11:6) “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” So may the Lord help us to not be wishy washy in our Prayers, but to be expecting and knowing that what we pray for is already done by faith not just hoping it is. (James 1:6-8) says “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” So have faith beloved when you pray and expect, and believe, and know for sure that it is done, and it is done. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”  (Jeremiah 29:11)
