THE LORD OF HOSTS IS WITH US

Dear all,

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2

Word of God:

At the beginning of your supplications the command was issued, and I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed; so give heed to the message and gain understanding of the vision. Daniel 9: 23

Thought: Prayer – Always Pray and Don’t Give up! THE LORD OF HOSTS IS WITH US. Martin Luther rightly applied this title to LORD Jesus Christ in his Hymn”A Mighty Fortress of God.”

Did we in our own strength confide,

Our striving would be losing;

Were not the right Man on our side,

The Man of God’s own choosing:

Dost ask who that may be?

Christ Jesus, it is He;

Lord Sabaoth His Name,

From age to age the same,

And He must win the battle. – Martin Luther (1483-1546)

The Two Foundations

Dear all,

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

Word: The Two Foundations

The Two Foundations

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and [a]acts on them, [b]may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the [c]floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. 26 Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not [d]act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 The rain fell, and the [e]floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.” Matthew 7:24-27 (NASB)

Thought:

The two lives Jesus compares at the end of the Sermon on the Mount have several points in common: they both build, they both hear Jesus’ teaching, and they both experience the same set of circumstances in life. The difference between them isn’t caused by ignorance but by one ignoring what Jesus said. Externally, their lives may look similar; but the lasting structural differences will be revealed by the storms of life.

The immediate differences in your life when you decided to follow Jesus may not be obvious, but eventually they will turn out to affect even your eternal destiny.

To what degree does your life reflect the directions Jesus gave in this Sermon?

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Spiritual Eyes to See the Marvelous Light In Christ Jesus

Dear all,

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2

Word:

When He (Jesus) was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” Luke 24: 30-32

Thought:

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Cor 4:4

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Glorifying God and Making Disciples

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Word:

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+28%3A18-20&version=NIV

 

Thought:

Jesus left the disciples with these last words of instruction. We have to go – whether it is next door or another country – and make disciples. As we obey, we have comfort in the knowledge that Jesus is always with us.

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Peace with God In Christ Jesus

Dear all,

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13

Word of God: Romans 5: 1-2

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we[b]boast in the hope of the glory of God.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Romans+5&version=NIV

Thoughts: When we accept LORD Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, a significant exchange takes place in our heart. We give Him our sins, and He forgives and makes us right with God. Are we right with God? If not today is the day of Salvation.

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Fear not! Stand Still! See the miraculous deliverance of our Lord!

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Fear not! Stand Still! See the miraculous deliverance of our Lord!

13 Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14: 13 – 14

We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.” II Chronicles 20: 13b

 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” – Psalm 46: 10

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+46&version=NIV

Trusting in the LORD Jesus is the patient expectation that God will fulfill His promises in his Word and strengthen us to rise above life’s difficulties.

Do you have confident in Christ Jesus that His purposes are right? Do you believe God loves you and wants the best for you?

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.

Made Alive In Christ Jesus

Dear all,

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Made Alive In Christ Jesus: Ephesians 2: 1-10

Word: For by grace you have been saved through faith; and [h]that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. (Verses 8 – 10).

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ephesians+2%3A1-10&version=NASB

Thought:  The advantages of new life through our LORD Jesus Christ are in multiple folds. For example, we can live under an open heaven. Living under an open heaven means we are God’s children and our day-to-day life will be totally transformed by Christ’s resurrection power for His glory. A transformed life is an effective witness to the power of God’s Word. It is not based on the righteous works we do, but only by His grace.

In Christ we have everything we need for salvation and for living the Christian life. Thank God for what we have received in Christ Jesus.
