1 Timothy 6:17-19: “Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, not to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.” Paul is referring to people who are already wealthy and is encouraging Timothy to tell these individuals not to be high-minded or proud and not to trust in uncertain riches. Only the living God can provide for all of our needs. Those with wealth are commanded to recognize God as the true source of their wealth and to be generous with their riches. The material blessings of God are to be enjoyed and used for the advancement of His kingdom, not for self-centered living. A believer’s daily obedience to God builds a good foundation for the time to come. The scriptures teach that a believer’s works will be evaluated to see what his or her life in Christ has produced. That is not to say we cannot enjoy the fruits of our labor, but when that overshadows our will to serve the Lord, herein, lies the issue. Special thanks to Pastor John Branning who was the inspiration for today’s Word.

Isaiah 60: 1,2: “Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.” Isaiah’s prophecies often emphasize the contrast between light and darkness to symbolize the
contrast between eternal life and death, salvation and judgment.  I think we see this darkness more and more as we live in these end times. Living within the confides of God’s eternal glory does not guarantee we will not have problems for face sickness or even death. It does guarantee He will provide a way out and He will not place on us more than we can bear. It has been a long week for this nation – hard to comprehend the evil that shows it’s face. Stay strong brothers and sisters – WE can overcome in His Name!

Jesus is talking with Peter where we pick up the conversation in Matthew 18:21,22:’Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven”‘ Peter’s question was a logical outgrowth of Jesus’ teachings. In the Hebrew culture at that time the traditional limit was three times. Jesus’ point was not to keep count at all, but to always be willing to forgive.

God Calling – HOW POWER COMES – Lord, Thou art our Refuge.
Our God, in Thee do we trust. O Master, come and talk with us.
“All power is given unto Me.  It is Mine to give, Mine to withhold, but
even I have to acknowledge that I cannot withhold it from the soul that
dwells near Me, because it is then not a gift, but passes insensibly from
Me to My disciples.  It is breathed in by the soul who lives in My Presence.
Learn to shut yourself away in My Presence – and then, without speaking,
you have those things you desire of Me, Strength – Power – Joy – Riches.

WISDOM – As thy days so shall thy strength be.  “I  have promised that for every day you live, the strength shall be given you.  Do not fear. Face each difficulty sure that the wisdom and strength will be given you for it.  Claim it.  Rely on Me to keep My Promise about this.  In My Universe, for every task I give one of My children, there is set
aside all that is necessary for its performance.  So why fear?  So why doubt?”

Psalm 117: “Praise the LORD, all you Gentiles! Laud Him, all
you peoples! For His merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!” Laud which means “to speak well of” nicely parallels the term praise, which means “to be excitedly boastful about.” The Hebrew word for Gentiles means all people except Jews; the word for peoples speaks of smaller groups of people, along ethnic and language lines. Merciful kindness, or “loyal love,” refers to God’s faithfulness to His covenant promises to His people. The reason the nations are to give praise to God is found in His relationship with Israel. Praise the LORD: the concluding
Hallelujah is an appropriate shout of triumph in God’s mercy. Looks like it’s T.G.I.F. !!!!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy your weekend brothers and sisters, be safe and we’ll worship together on Monday.

SERVE ALL – I am among you as one that serveth. “Yes! remember to serve all. Be ready to prove your Sonship by service. Look on all you meet as guests in your Father’s House, to be treated with Love, with all consideration, with gentleness. As a servant of all think no work beneath you. Be ever ready to do all you can for others. Serve. Serve. Serve. There is a gladness in service, a Joy in doing My Will for others, in being My expression of all good for them. Remember that, when you serve others, you are acting for your Master and Lord who washed His disciples’ feet. So, in service for others, express your Love for Me.”
