Psalm 22: 27,28: “All the ends of the world shall remember and turn to
the LORD, and all the families of the nations shall worship before You.
For the kingdom is the LORD’s, and He rules over the nations.”
For King David these words refer to the spread of the news of his
deliverance to places far outside of Judah.  For our Savior, Jesus
Christ, these words speak of the eventual spread of the gospel of
redemption to all the families of the nations, a fulfillment of God’s
promises that He would bless all nations through Abraham’s
descendants.  Have a lovely weekend and be safe!

RELAX – “Relax, do not get tense, have no fear.  All is for the
best.  How can you fear change when your life is hid with Me
in God, who changeth not – and I am the same yesterday, today,
and forever.  You must learn poise, soul-balance and poise, in
a vacillating, changing world.  Claim My power.  The same
power with which I cast out devils is yours today.  Use it.
If not, I withdraw it.  Use it ceaselessly.  You cannot ask too
much.  Never think you are too busy.  As long as you get back
to Me and replenish after each task no work can be too  much.
My Joy I give you.  Live in it.  Bathe your Spirit in it. Reflect it.”

1 John 4: 17-19: “Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts our fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears
has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.” The mature expression of ‘perfected’ love produces confidence as a Christian anticipates Jesus’ judgment of the world. A person who abides in love will not be ashamed when Jesus returns. A mature understanding of God’s love removes any fear of God’s judgment. Fear is a tool of the devil and I can tell you from personal experience; once you replace fear, hatred, and judgmental attitudes in your heart … with LOVE; your lives will change for the better and a happy confidence overwhelms you. If we don’t learn anything else from theWord – learn to love; deeply, purely and honestly. Then Jesus can work in our lives.

John 20:30, 31: “And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in  this book; but these are written that you may believe that
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing  you may have life in His name.” John states the purpose of his book.  His purpose was to convince his readers that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah who fulfilled God’s promises to Israel. Jesus is the Son of God, God in the flesh.  By believing these things, a person obtains eternal life.

A SUNRISE GIFT – “To those whose lives have been full of struggle and care, who have felt as you both have, the tragedy of living, the pity of an agonized heart for My poor world – to those of My followers I give that Peace and Joy that brings to age its second Spring, the youth they sacrificed for Me, and for My world…. Take each day now as a joyous sunrise gift from Me. Your simple daily tasks done in My Strength and Love will bring the consciousness of all your highest hopes. Expect great things. Expect great things.”

2 Timothy 3: 1-5: “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come.  For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self  control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors,headstrong, haughty lovers  of pleasures rather than lovers of God, having a form of godly devotion but denying its power.  And from such people turn away!”   Last days  includes the whole time from the writing of this letter until the return of Christ. It sure seems like all of the above has escalated in our lifetimes.
A form of godliness is an outward appearance of reverence for God. Denying its power describes religious activity that is not connected to a living relationship with Jesus Christ.  As time progresses, people begin to participate in religious activities that are empty.  Their activities will have nothing to do with a true relationship with God or with individual faith in Jesus Christ.  This kind of religion provokes God’s anger. Glad we all have a faith based relationship with our Savior!   Have a Blessed weekend and everyone stay warm!!!

EXPECT TEMPTATION – Lord, give us Power to conquer temptation as Thou didst in the wilderness. “The very first step towards conquering temptation is to see it as temptation. To dissociate yourself from it. Not to think of it as a something resulting from your tiredness, or illness or poverty or nerve-strain, when you feel you might well excuse yourself for yielding, but first to realize very fully that when you have heard My Voice (“the Heavens opened,” as it were) and are going to fulfill your mission to work for Me and to draw souls to Me, you must expect a mighty onslaught from the evil one, who will endeavor with all his might to frustrate you, and to prevent your good work. Expect that. Then when these little temptations, or big ones come, you will recognize them as planned by evil to thwart Me. Then for very love of Me you will conquer.”
