I just want to share a few Scriptures concerning finances for those who may be concerned over the current economic situation in this nation:

Ps 37:25-26 KJV
25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

Remember that the righteous are those who are in right standing with God the Father through the Blood of Jesus Christ. If you have received Jesus of Nazareth as your Lord and personal Saviour, then you ARE righteous! Right now, wherever you are, you ARE righteous. You have the RIGHT to go boldly into the presence of the One, True, Most High, Living, Almighty God of the Bible, the God of Heaven, as though you've never done anything wrong! Hallelujah! What freedom we have in Him! Now you can confess these Scriptures to encourage yourself in the Lord. Don't allow worry, guilt or fear to get a grip in your life. Remember:

2 Tim 1:7 AMP
7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

Our Heavenly Father wants us to walk totally free from guilt, fear and condemnation. Look to God as your source of supply and have confidence in Him, NOT in the world system of finance. They've already proven that they can't handle the money!

Now that was speaking about our daily provision. If you want to walk in Divine prosperity, you need to be a tither and a giver (over and above the tithe). We'll look at what the Word of God has to say about that subject in our next post. In the meantime, stop worrying and fretting. Remember that the Word of God says:

Matt 6:25-33 AMP
25 Therefore I tell you, stop being perpetually uneasy (anxious and worried) about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink; or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life greater [in quality] than food, and the body [far above and more excellent] than clothing?
26 Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?
27 And who of you by worrying and being anxious can add one unit of measure (cubit) to his stature or to the span of his life? [Ps 39:5-7.]
28 And why should you be anxious about clothes? Consider the lilies of the field and learn thoroughly how they grow; they neither toil nor spin.
29 Yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his magnificence (excellence, dignity, and grace) was not arrayed like one of these. [1 Kings 10:4-7.]
30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and green and tomorrow is tossed into the furnace, will He not much more surely clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 Therefore do not worry and be anxious, saying, What are we going to have to eat? or, What are we going to have to drink? or, What are we going to have to wear?
32 For the Gentiles (heathen) wish for and crave and diligently seek all these things, and your heavenly Father knows well that you need them all.
33 But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides

Keep seeking Him and put your faith, trust and confidence in His Word and you will ALWAYS come out on top!

Shalom in Him!

I want to share more Scripture with you concerning the recent elections.We talked in the last blog post about praying for our nation. We have to keep in mind, especially when dealing with political subjects which can be very divisive, that THIS is our foundational Truth:

Eph 6:12 KJV
12 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.

The Amplified Bible says this:

Eph 6:12 AMP
12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

We need to keep this in mind when we hear all of the political rhetoric, gossip, mud slinging, etc that occurs during times such as these. Remember that our views should be based on the Word of God. When people don't see or believe what the Word of God says, the Bible tells us that their minds are blinded by the god of this world (system).

2 Cor 4:4 AMP
4 For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers' minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God.

So what DO we do? We obey the Word of God and fight the fight we were equipped to fight against the works and workers of darkness described in Eph. 6:12 above. We need to remember that:

2 Cor 10:3-4 AMP
3 For though we walk (live) in the flesh, we are not carrying on our warfare according to the flesh and using mere human weapons.
4 For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds,

We need to use the weapons we have been given by God: the Word of God, the Blood of Jesus, the Name of Jesus and the powerful prayer and intercession in the spirit by the Holy Spirit. When we don't know specifically what to pray or how to pray, then the Holy Spirit comes to our aid and prays God's perfect will.

Stay in the Word every day and filled with the Spirit every day and you will be in a position to fight the right kind of fight with the right kind of weapons! The ones that WORK!!!

Shalom in Him!

I thought I would follow up our last blog post with this verse:

2 Chron 7:14 KJV
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Notice that it says "If my people, which are called by My Name". That makes it very clear who He is referring to. In the Old Covenant, this was directed to the Jewish nation. In the New Covenant, this refers to born again believers in Jesus of Nazareth. If WE will humble ourselves, pray, seek His face on behalf of OUR nation, then He will hear from Heaven, forgive the sins of our nation and heal our land. There is no disputing the fact that the United States of America, in a national sense, has turned from God. This nation was founded by God, and on the Word of God. So much has changed since that time! BUT, we are promised here that if WE obey His Word, then our nation will be spared. It doesn't take the nation to pray, just the believers! The Amplified Bible says this:

2 Chron 7:14 AMP
14 If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.

So we, as believers, need to make Him our #1 priority! We need to seek Him, crave His presence, require time with Him face to face, humbling ourselves (accepting something we may not deserve) to pray and intercede on behalf of the nation. THEN our God will hear our prayer, and our prayer will give Him free course to act! We will see a mighty move of His Spirit in the lives of the people of our nation, from the leaders to the "regular folks"! That will bring the "change" this nation REALLY needs! Glory to God! And don't ever forget:

Prov 21:1 KJV
21 The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.

Our job is to pray and God's job is to change or replace the leaders! We've got the easy job, don't you agree! So let's be about our Father's business, trusting Him to take care of the rest!

Shalom in Him!

It's been quite awhile since I lasted posted a study here. I have been seeking the Lord on how to continue. We have so many things that have been covered on this blog that are vital Truths and my concern is that those will be lost to blog archives if I continue to post new ones. I would like to invite everyone to go back and refresh your understanding of the previous posts and I would suggest new viewers to START there! But for today, with the elections so fresh on everyone's mind, I would like to look at this verse of Scripture:

Phil 3:20 AMP
20 But we are citizens of the state (commonwealth, homeland) which is in heaven, and from it also we earnestly and patiently await [the coming of] the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) [as] Savior,

Those of us who are believers in Jesus (who have received Jesus of Nazareth as Lord and personal Saviour) have a citizenship that supersedes our citizenship of any earthly nation. We are citizens, first and foremost, of Heaven. We have been assigned on this earth as Ambassadors:

2 Cor 5:20 AMP
20 So we are Christ's ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ's personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God

Our #1 priority as believers is to share the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those He brings across our paths or those He sends us to! When we are where God wants us to be, doing what God wants us to do, then we qualify to have God's promises of protection, provision, safety, blessing, anointing, equipping, joy, peace, prosperity, abundance, health, healing, wholeness, wellness, fitness and favor manifest in our lives! Now we will have to find out in the Word of God just what these promises are so that we can look for and expect them based on the Word. They are provided, potentially, for all believers:

Eph 1:3 KJV
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

And we also see this promise concerning the Word of God:

2 Tim 3:16-17 AMP
16 Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God's will in thought, purpose, and action),
17 So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work

So don't be discouraged by ANYTHING that happens in this world! Let the Word of God completely change your thinking to understand God's perspective and to eagerly anticipate, and participate in, this last, great move of the Spirit of God before Jesus comes for His church! (That's us!!!)

Shalom in Him!
