Peter 1: 16-18: “For we do not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory; ‘This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.’ And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.” After Jesus’ death false teachers were claiming that Jesus’ resurrection and return, as well as the Holy Spirit’s indwelling of believers, were all “cunningly devised fables.” Peter countered their faith claims with an eyewitness account. Peter himself had actually seen the power and coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Psalm 118: 25, 26, 27, 28 – “Save now, I pray, O LORD; O LORD send new prosperity. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We have blessed you from the house of the LORD. You are my God, and I will praise You; You are my God, I will exalt You. Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! His mercy endures forever.” As God’s only Son, Jesus is the One who comes in the name of the LORD; He is the One who reveals God the Father. Blessings for all our friends looking for work or a new job; we claim that for you in Jesus’ name!

1 John 2:3-6: “Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.” The New Testament speaks of knowing God in two senses. One, who has trusted Christ knows Him. Two – whoever has previously met the Lord can also come to know Him intimately. Disobedience shows a lack of personal knowledge of Christ. To claim to know Christ while disobeying His word is a lie. Abiding is habitual obedience. It has the idea of settling down in Christ or resting in Him. The Christian, as a child of God, ought to obey God because of a sincere desire to do so.

Psalm 27: 1,4,5: “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?..One thing I have desired of the LORD, that I will seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in His temple. For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.” Light indicates deliverance from darkness, which is a biblical symbol of evil. The word ‘salvation’ combined with the world ‘light’ means “saving light.” Have a super weekend my friends. If you are outside in this heat – stay hydrated.That heat can be really lethal. Blessings around!!!!!!!

Jesus is meeting with His disciples – giving them power over unclean spirits as He was preparing to send them out into the world to preach and teach. Matthew 10:32, 33: “Therefore, whoever confesses Me before men, him I will confess before My Father. who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.” Every act of our lives will be evaluated at the judgment seat of Christ. (ouch) To refuse to speak up for Christ because of intimidation or persecution will result in the believer’s loss of reward and consequent loss of glory in Christ’s kingdom. Brothers and sisters – take your stand, be firm, if you can’t see it – we ARE in the last days.

Romans 12: 9-13: “Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another, not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.” The highest form of love is agape. This is a self-sacrificial love. The greatest proof of the truth of the gospel message and of the reality of Jesus’ love is the love believers show to each other .

Psalm 24:1,2 – “The earth is the LORD’s and all it’s fullness, the world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters.” God is Sovereign over all He has created. God’s rule extends to all people, even those who do not acknowledge His power.
