    Acts 27-28

    This is it, my last blog. the door is closing!

    Paul sails for Rome; Paul head out to Italy (the wind was against us). Paul warns of the danger of the trip. There was a storm at sea. Being ponded by the storm and all the gear was thrown over. Paul declares that there would not be any harm. Paul told the sailors that they need to stay on the ship. They threw the wheat in the sea to save the ship. They found land at the Island of Malta. Paul cured many people on this island by putting his hands on them. Paul Arrives at Rome On the way, they found believers. Paul stayed with a soldier. The Jews wanted to dead, but I asked to see the emperor Paul started preaching in Rome, you will indeed listen, but not understand. This salvation is for the Gentiles..

    Lord, thank you for helping me read the Bible in a year. This will be documented in my book of life!

    The Lord tells Moses to “leave this place” (Sinai) and go to the place that he swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Go to the land flowing with milk and honey. He will draw out the enemies of the land. Everyone who was seeking the Lord went to he tent of meeting. hen Moses went into the tent of meeting, a cloud (God) formed a pillar by the entrance of the door. God spoke to Moses face to face. Moses said, show me your way. But no one can see me and Moses makes new tablets similar to the former ones. The Lord passed by, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The Covent was renewed You shall not make a covenant with the occupiers of the land. Don’t worship any other God. No one is to comet o me empty handed. Appear to God three times a year.

    These spies checking out the land and ended up entering the house of a prostitute. This woman hide these men on the roof with stalks of flax. People chased these spies. She told them that she knows it’s their land since the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea, ands what happened to the two kings of the Amorites. The Lord your God is indeed God in heaven above the earth. The spies made a “deal” with the prostitute. Created an oath. Israel Crosses the Jordon ; The people were told that once you see the arc of the covenant carried by priests, you should move by following it. This will show you the way. Joshua said select 12 people (one from each tribe). The Jordon was. “blocked” (or cut off) and the people crossed over on dry land. Twelve Stones Set Up at Gilgal; The Lord told Joshua to have 12 men carry a stone (each) from the Jordon. The stones shall be to the Israelites a memorial forever. Over 40 thousand people to cross over. Once the priest carrying the Arc left the Jordon, the water was “unblocked” and was overflowing all its banks. These stones were set up at Gilgal. The hand of the Lord is mighty. New Generation Circumcised
    Thus, the people born in the wilderness, these people were circumcised. Joshhua had a vision by Jericho where he was told to untie your sandals because you are on Holy Ground.

    Genesis 1-3

    Six Days of Creation and the Sabbath; In the beginning (when) God created the heavens and earth, the earth had no light or volume. Then his wind came and create light. Night ,day, land, sea, and veggies (of every kind) came to be. Along with the sun and stars. God created all the animals on earth and sea (of every kind). God thought that this was good THEN, he created human kind! God put this man in the garden of Eden. It had all the veggie plus the tree of life He had dominion over everything that had a breath of life. God rested on the seventh day. The man was told he could eat from anything in the garden except for the tree of life which determines good from evil. This man gave a name to all the animals. To give the man a helper the man gave up one of his ribs for the creation of his helper (or woman). The First Sin and Its Punishment The serpent appears, he was very crafty, and encouraged the woman to eat from the tree of life. You touch it and you will die. The woman took the fruit and gave some to the man. The serpent tricked me. For the serpent, on your belly you shall move. Your desire shall be for your husband. The ground was then cursed, and was told “you shall eat of it all the days of your life. Eat the plants of the field and by the sweat of your face you shall eat bread until you return to the ground. You were created from dust, thus that’s how you will return. The man called hi wife Eve.

    The Fall of Babylon; Another angel came a said fallen is Babylon the great. It’s now a dwelling place of demons. Had drinking and practiced fornication and living in luxury with the Queen. Everything your soul longed is gone from you. This is to never be found again. This happened in one hour in Babylon. God has given judgement. All nations were deceived by this sorcery. The Rejoicing in Heaven; Sounds of Hallelujah, the whore has been taking care of. The Lord is to reign. Blessed those who are invited to the marriage supper of the lamb. Worship God! The Rider on the White Horse Heaven then opened up andI saw a horse named Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. The horses eyes are like a flame of Fire, and his head are many diamonds; inscribing a name that no one knows but himself.. Is clothed in a robe dipped in blood and his name is called the Word of God. His armies of heaven also rode white horses. The Beast and its Armies Defeated Saw an angel standing in the sun, he called out to the birds “come, gather for a great supper of God”. To eat the flesh of Kings, Captains, and the mighty…this was the end. The beast was captured and those with the mark of the beast were burned will sulfur. A Thousand Years; An angel was seen holding the key of the bottomless pit. He seized the Devil and Satan and bound them for a thousand years and threw them into the pit so he wouldn’t deceive more nations. After a thousand years he must be let out for a while. Satan’s Doom; After a thousand years Satin will be release and will deceive all. The Dead are Judged; A great white throne and the book of life was opened and the book of life which has your works documented in it. Then I saw a new heaven, and the sea was of no more. The home of God is with the mortals. God said he is making everything new. He is the Alpha and Omega. Death will be no more. It is Done. The evil people will be in the lake of fire (the second death). The measurement of the new /Jerusalem was 1500 miles square. Glory of God is the light they use. Gods name will be on their forehead. This is all from John. The Lord says “see, I am coming soon, will repay according to everyone’s work. I am the beginning and the end. Have the rights to the tree of life, take the water of life as a gift. Don’t take away from this prophecy or God will take away that person’s share in the tree of life. I am coming soon

    Let the earth hear the words from my mouth, and my teaching drop like rain. I will proclaim the work/name of God. He is the Rock, his works are perfect. His children are not respecting him. The Lord fixed the boundaries of the people.. But Jacob sacrificed to demons, he ignored God who then turned away being jealous (hide his face). They provoked God worshiping idols. He is talking about the book of Revelations Vengeance is mine. There is no God but me! He will repay his enemies. Will repay those who hate him.

God rides through heaven to help. He is your savior. Moses end up dying and he is buried in Moab.

    Jude was a servant of Jesus Christ and a brother to James. Peace to all who are called by the Father. We need Faith to abound. We need judgement for false teachers. The arc angel Michael contended with the devil about the body of Moses. Talk about unnatural lust. The Lord rebukes you. This lust could be a blemish against you. They slander what they don’t understand. Enoch appeared, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied “the Lord is coming with ten thousand of his holy ones, to execute judgment on all, and to convict everyone of all the deeds of ungodliness that they have committed in such an ungodly way, and all the harsh things that ungodly sinners have spoken against him. These are grumblers. There will be scoffers at the end. Keep yourself in the love of God.

    The woman was the dragon; closed with the sun. Had crown of 12 stars. Michael fights against satin and the devil. He is the accuser. So rejoice, but the dragon was thrown down to earth. SO WATCH OUT! for those who follow God. The First Beast; This beast had seven heads and ten horns. It was like a leopard, its feet like a bear, with mouth like a lion. The whole earth followed the beast. (for 42 months) The beast has control. The second beast‘ This beast had two horns like a lamb. Makes the earth worship the first beast. It deceives the world. It all goes down to wisdom calculating the number of the beast. It’s number is six hundred sixty six. The lamb and the 144,000; He was standing by mount Zion along with the 144,000 “marked people”. They sing before the four living creatures (maybe the 4 angles on earth). These people have been redeemed from the earth.. They have not defiled themselves with women. These people are fruits for God and the Lamb, no lie in their mouth for they are blameless. The messages of the Three Angels; An angels was flying in midheaven with the /gospel. He said “Fear the Lord and give Him glory. Then another angel folloe saying “fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has made all nations drink wine of the wrath of her fornication. The third angel followed them crying whoever follows the beast and its image will receive a mark on their forehead or hands. They will drink the wrath from his cup of anger. Write this: “blessed are the dead who from now on die in the Lord”. Yes says the spirit, they will rest from their labors. rivers and springs of water became blood
    Reaping the Earths Harvest I saw a white cloud was the son of man. It’s time to reap the earth, for the grapes are ripe. The Angels with the Seven Last Plagues; saw seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last, the wrath of God will end. The angels were robed in bright linen. Then one of the four angles gave these seven angels seven golden bowls of the wrath of God. The bowls of God’s Wrath;
    1. became a sore
    2. sea of blood
    3. Rivers and springs of water became blood
    4. On the sun which mad it scorch!
    5. Plunged the kingdom into darkness
    6. Pour bowl in great river Euphrates, and the water dried up. Saw demonic spirits
    7. It’s done (loud voice) violent earthquake
    he is coming like a thief!!
    The Great Whore and the Beast; The whore was drunk hanging out with the beast. Seven heads are seven mountains. There are 7 kings, where 5 have fallen. The beast is the eigth…it’s destruction. The 10 horns are 10 kings who have not received a kingdom. John went with the spirit to the woods and saw the great whore. She was caring her fornication with her. These kings will have power for 1 hour with the beast.

He has led them 40 years in the wilderness (plus their cloths did not wear out). You have not drank wine or strong drink. The Lord is with the Israelites in geo. battles. This is why you need to obey this covenant of the Lord your God. Don’t follow the filthy idels, or he lord will block them out. This would be done because these people have not obeyed the “law” of the covenant. This wrath could bring on curses. God fidelity assured; he will restore you fortunes and have compassion on you. God will put curses on your enemies. If you obey the commandments, the lord will bless you, otherwise you will perish. Choose life so you may live! Joshua becomes Moses’ succssor Moses was 120 years old, and is having difficulties getting around and the Lord told me that that you shall not cross over this Jordon. The Lord will cross over before you and will destroy these nations before you. Joshua will also go over first, and be strong and bold. Have no fear because to Lord is with you. The Lord says “do not fear or be dismayed”. Every seventh year, during the festival of booths, you shall read this law before all of Israel. Moses and Joshua receive God’s charge. The Lord told Moses that his time to die in near, call Joshua to the tent of meeting so I can commission him. The Lord appeared in a pillar of a cloud. The Lord told Moses that “people will begin to prostitute themselves” to foreign gods. They will break my covenant. A song was written. Now God said “I will turn my face to them” if they don’t obey my covenant. Take this law and put it into the arc of the covenant. I will be provoked by anger through the works of your hands.

The Seventh Seal and the Golden Censer; when the lamb opened up the seventh seal there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. Seven angles stood before God and they were given seven trumpets. An angel with a censor collected all the incense at the golden alter, then he threw the censer on earth. Result was rumbling, fires, and earthquakes. The Seven Trumpets; First trumpet blew and 1/3 of the earth, trees, and grass was burned up. For the second trumpet blew and a mountain was thrown into the sea that became blood. A third of the living creatures in the sea died, along with a third of ships were destroyed. The third angel blew his trumpet and Wormwood (a great star). This fell on a third of the rivers and springs. This water was bitter and many people died. The fourth angel blew his trumpet and a third of sun, moon, and stars. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth. The fifth angel blew his trumpet and a star fell from heaven to earth, was also given the key to the shaft of the bottomless pit. Opening up the shaft smoke arose like a great furnace. Locusts will come out of the shaft and they will torture anyone who is not “marked” (this is for five months). People will want to die, but death will escape them. The King over the bottomless pit is Abaddon. The sixth angel blew his trumpet releases the four angels covering earth who are bound at the Euphrates. These angels were released to kill a third of humankind. Troop size was 200 million.. Humankind was killed by fire o sulfur smoke.

Now from a profit (took off Paul’s belt, and bound his own feet and hands); Thus said the Holy Spirit, this is the way the Jews in Jerusalem will bind the man with his own belt. Paul replied that he is ready to be bound and die in Jerusalem. Paul then went through a purification procedure. Paul was arrested in the temple. Paul was being beaten. Paul was then put into the barracks, but then he spoke to (the mob became quite) in the Hebrew language, saying “brothers and fathers…I am a Jew….he being zealous of God. Then Paul had a conversion as he was approaching Damascus, when he encountered a great light from heaven. It was Jesus of Nazareth. You are persecuting me. He was told to go to Damascus and was told what to do. Paul was blind from the light, and he was led to Damascus where he sight was restored. Regain your sight. Now get up, be baptized, and have your sins washed away. Then Paul goes to the Gentiles. Paul was praying, andhe fell into a trance and saw Jesus, Paul was told to leave Jerusalem because they will not accept his testimony. Paul was told to go far away to the Gentiles.

    Showed to show what is to take place. John has the seven churches in Asia, then the seven spirits who are before the throne, along with Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, and the firstborn of the dead,, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. He freed us from sins by his blood. He is coming with the clouds, “I am the Alpha and the Omega”. A vision of Christ; John has the patience and endurance to follow the Lord. John heard a trumpet and heard that he should write in a book what you see (to send to the seven churches). He turned and aw seven golden lampstands along with (like) the Son of Man, clothed with a long robe. His eyes were like flames of fire, feet were like burnished bronze, refined as in a furnace. In his right hand he held seven stars. His face was like the sun (shining at full force). John fell to his feet, His righthand was placed on him and said “don’t be afraid; I am the first and the last”. I was dead, but now I am alive forever. I also have the key of Death and of Hades. The seven stars are thee angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches. The message to Ephesus; You are patient and have tested the unfaithful but now you are unworthy…so repent. You have abandoned the love you had at first. If you don’t repent I will come qnd remove your lampstand. Listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches. For all who listens I will give permission to eat from the tree of life. Thr message to Smyrna Have the synagogue of Satan. you will be teste The message to Pergamum the words of hgim who has the sharp two-edged sword. You are holding fast to my way. Listen to my spirit and repent those who worship idols and practice fornication. If there is no repentance God will make war against them with the sword of his mouth. For everyone that conquers, they will receive a white stones. The message to Thyatira You have done good, but repent if you practice fornication. The message to Sardis I know your works, but you are dead. You need to follow my word and repent to become worthy. Listen to what the spirit is saying to the churches. The messages to Philadelphia They have the key of David. God knows their works. He puts in front of you an open door in which no one can shut. Because of patience and endurance they will stay away from the “test”. Hold fast for what you have. The message to Laodicea: the people are wealth but God says they are poor, blind, and naked. Just repent and open the door, Listen to the spirit and hear what is being told to the churches. The Heavenly Worship; Heavens door stood open. John heard “come up here” (at this tie he was in the spirit. He also saw 24 thrones along with the seven spirits of God. Around the throne there were four living creatures. These creatures had six wings. Worthiness was granted. The scroll and the lamb; John saw, in his right hand, one seated on the throne. This scroll had seven seals. An angel proclaimed “who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?”. No one on heaven or earth was able to open the scroll…no one was worthy enough!. More talk of the seven spirits of God. This is when Jesus was found to be worthy. The Seven Seals For the living seals the first two were a white horse. For the third seal a black horse popped out. For the fourth seal, a pale green horse named death appeared.. To ope0n the fifth seal showed the souls of those who had been slaughtered for the word of God.

The Lord says “Return to me….and I will return to you”. The first vision happened with a horseman. The Lord sent them to patrol the streets. Second vision, the horns and the Smith. The third vision was a man with a measuring line (to measure Jerusalem). To check out its width and length. God declares (by an angel) that he will put a wall of fire around the city and thus, the glory within it.. The Lord appeals to the exiles. The Lords will inherit Judah as his portion of holy land. The fourth vision was with Joshua and Satan. The angel cleans up Joshua an he was supposed to bring people under his vine and fig tree. The fifth vision was a lampstand and olive trees. Lampstand was made of gold. These olive trees are the “two anointed ones” who stand by the Lord of the whole earth. The sixth vision was the flying scroll 20 X 10 cubits in size. This flying scroll is a curse for those who steal or swears (by His name). The Seventh vision was about a woman in a basket (which was wickedness). The Eighth vision was the four chariots; each chariots had different color horses. These color represents the 4 winds of heaven. A coronation of a branch took place so Joshua shall “branch out in place”. He is then going to build a temple for the Lord. The word of the Lord came to Zechariah. When you fast, don’t you eat and drink for yourself? The word of the Lord said don’t oppress the widow, alien, or the poor. Don’t devise evil in your heart against another.

It’s good that you should take hold of one, without letting go of the other, for the one who fears God shall succeed with both. Wisdom gives strength to the wise more than ten rulers that are in a city. There is no one on earth so righteous as to do good without ever sinning. Everything is tested by wisdom. God has made human beings, but they have devised many schemes (both good and evil). Who is like a wise man? Wisdom makes your face shine. Wickedness does not deliver any type of justice (speedily). The human heart is fully set to do evil. Does committing a sin prolong your life? Don’t know, but it all will be well with those who fear God. It will not go well for the wicked.

Facing “issues” Paul says we are mortal, just like you, but we bring the good news. Move away from these worthless things to the living God. God does good things! Paul was stoned, but not to death.

    Haggai

    The word of the Lord came to the prophet Haggai. Go up to the hills and rebuild my house. The lord stirred up the spirit of Zerubbabel, Joshua, and all the remnant of the people. They worked on the house. Now the temple is not looking well, they need to restore the house. Haggai was talking about being holy, and clean and unclean people. Haggai spoke to Zerubbabel saying that God is about to shake the heavens and earth, and overthrow the throne of kingdoms. Zerubbabel gets a signet ring to signify that he is the chosen one.

    Ecclesiastics 5-6

    Be humble and guard yourself (steps) when you go into the house of the Lord. Draw near to listen, and don’t sacrifice like a fool. Watch your mouth, don’t be a fool and fulfill your vows (God does not like FOOLS and has no pleasure). Don’t let your mouth lead you to sin. Just fear God.. A lover of wealth or money will not be satisfied. God only gives us a little time on earth. If God gives you wealth (lacks nothing), God does not enable them to enjoy (but a stranger enjoys them). Be like a stillborn child. All human toil is for the mouth, but you appetite is not satisfied. Better is the sight of the eyes than the wandering of desire…this is vanity!

Manasseh was in destress and humbled himself toward the Lord, and he was lifted up and restored. He then believed that the Lord was God. Later he died, his son Amon succeeded hi. Now he did not humble himself in the sight if God, and his servants even killed him. Next, his son Josiah took over (at 8 years old). He reigned for 31 years. He did right in the sight of the Lord. Walked like his ancestor David. He broke down the high places etc. He found the book of the law (gave money to restore the house of the Lord. /the book was from Moses.

Keep trusting in God, keep loving each other. The good news lives forever. Rid yourself of bad things but enjoy your spiritual milk while growing into salvation. Be built into a spiritual house. If you stumble it could mean that the word was disobeyed. Once you were not a people, but now you are Gods people, fully receiving Gods mercy. Live as a servant of God. Protect your soul from the desires of the flesh. Be honorable, and through your deeds it will be shown. Because God is coming to judge. Honor everyone, love the family of believers. Do you suffer when you do right? Now Christ committed no sin, He had no deceit was found in his mouth. Jesus turned the other cheek…always. Wives accept the authority of your husband. For husbands honor your wives (weaker sex). Suffering for doing right. Believers have unity of the spirit. do not repay evil for evil. Repay with a blessing. Those who desire life should keep their tongues from evil. Turn away from evil and do good. The eyes of the Lord is on the righteous. Keep your conscious clear..

    Peter reports ti the church at Jerusalem. The believers (circumcised people). He even saw a vision of a large sheet from heaven. It had four footed animals. God said kill and eat. Peter refused because he thought the food would be unclean. Then at Caesarea the spirit asked for Simon (Peter). Remembering the word of the Lord; John baptized you with water, but you will bee baptized by the holy spirit. So God has given to the gentiles the repentance that leads to life. Many people saw the grace of God. Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul. A famine was then predicted over all the world. King Herod had James killed (by the sword). The Jewish people liked this so Peter was arrested and thrown into prison. The people prayed for Peter, then an angel from the Lord came to the prison and set Peter free. Guards were on duty. The angel then left Peter after his escape. Was it Peters angel? Herod was struck down by an angel of God then eaten to death by worms.

    Reflection of a Royal Philosopher (son of David). Everything is vanity! All things are wearisome. Your eyes are not satisfied with seeing, or ears from hearing. People from long ago will not be remembered. The futility of seeking wisdom. God has given an unhappy situation to be busy with (seeking wisdom). The crooked cannot be straight, and what is lacking cannot be counted (the number guy doesn’t like this thought!). Is achieving great wisdom a folly (or like chasing the wind). If you increase your knowledge you will also increase your sorrow. The futility of self-indulgence; A test of pleasure. Help with wine, buildings, gardens, slaves, great possession of flocks, singers…. became great. His please came from all his toil, this was his reward. No wisdom and joy are given to one who pleases God. Wisdom excels folly as light excels darkness. The wise have eyes in their head, but the fools walk in darkness. Is wisdom vanity? Mortal like to eat and drink while finding enjoyment in their toil. This is from the hand of God. Is God the only one to have enjoyment? The reward- one who pleases him God gives wisdom and knowledge and joy. The sinner gets the work of gathering and heaping, only to give to one who pleases God. This is vanity!

    written by James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ

    When ever you face trial, considerate nothing but joy, because testing of your faith produces endurance. This will make you mature and complete. Don’t doubt, you will receive nothing from the Lord. Don’t be doubleminded, like the waves on the sea. Endure temptation, by yourself (because God does not tempt you), for temptation will lead to sin! Every gift is from above. Your anger does not produce God’s righteousness. Look at the law of liberty, but be sure to act because they will be blessed in their doings. Now, if you practice partiality. Don’t be judges of evil thoughts (example of rich vs. poor person). You have been judges and of evil thoughts. Don’t show partiality. Mercy triumphs over judgement. Faith without works is dead; by you works, show me your faith. Those who teach will be judged with greater strictness (reference guiding the whole body, or a rudder on a ship) The tongue is like a fire from hell. There are two kinds of wisdom; Shown by your good life that your works are done with gentleness born of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and selfish ambition in your heart, don’t be boastful and false to the truth. This second wisdom does not come from above. it’s earthly, unspiritual, devilish. The wisdom from above is first pure, then partiality, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits. [18] And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for those who make peace.

    II Chronicles 16-20

    The alliance with Aram was condemned. Asa sent much silver and gold to the king of Aram who resided in Damascus. This was so the king of Israel will withdraw from me. Asa’s had a disease in in feet, he didn’t seek the Lord of his healing. Jehoshaphat, son of Asa succeeded him and strengthen himself against Israel. The Lord was looking out after Jehoshaphat (he had great riches and honor).. Now Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel (who he was going to go to war with) “Inquire first for the word of the Lord”. There were 400 prophets who aid the Lord will be with you. The Jehoshaphat wonders if their is another prophet? (Micaiah so of Imlah). Micaiah claims all of Israel will be scattered like sheep on the mountain, so have each one go home in peace. THEN THE SPIRIT LIED TO ENTICE THE KING OF Israel. The Lord agreed ;( Micaiah was then put in prison. “The Lord has decreed disaster to you”. The king of Israel died (who disguised himself and went into battle). Then a soldier struck the king between the scale armor and the breastplate. He then called for the driver of his chariot to turn around and carry me out of battle. At sunset he died.

Had many other camp locations (some with no water to drink (1)). Even the anotrher wilderness of sin. There waqs talk about crossing the Jordon and desroying all the figured stones in Canaan. Lorde set the boundaries in the area they occupy. This is the land they are going to inherit. Talk about measurements in cubits. When you cross the Jordon you need to select cities for a refuge. A murderer shall be put to death. Rules of being aa murderer was discussed form the congregation (ordinance for death from God to Moses). Land goes from Lot to the Israelites. (sort of confusing?)

    Hebrews 8-10

    Talk about a mediator of a better covenant…from the Lord. Jesus is the mediator of a better covenant. He will put the laws into their minds. He will remember their sins no more. There are both Earthly and Heavenly Sanctuaries. Talk about the first and second tent. When Christ came, he became the perfect tent (not made by their own hands). There was a comparison between the blood of livestock to the blood of Christ. It reads; purifying our conscience from dead works to worship the living God. Reason: he is the mediator of a new covenant. Under law almost everything is purified by blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness on sin. /now Christ’s sacrifice takes away sin. Christ entered into heaven itself…to remove sins for all. There is a feeling of no consciousness of sin since it’s been forgiven. It is written that “you have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings (offered according to the law). People still are offering “stuff” for forgiveness of sins. Provoked on another with hope and good deeds. God will be the judge of all. Do you have compassion. You need endurance….live by faith.

    We are instructed that we are put in charge of things pertaining to God and offering gifts and sacrifices for our sins. Christ did not glorify himself as high priest. Being born perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation. There is also a warning against falling away. Remember to establish the practice (and knowledge of) the difference between good and evil. Work towards perfection. Go for the laying on of hands. We are looking for faith through righteousness. Now Melchizedek, King of Salem, apportioned one-tenth of everything “the king of righteousness”. Melchizedek remain a priest forever. This is where “the law to collect tithes” was established. Moses said nothing about priests. Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant. It says that their is no need to sacrifice day after day because He sacrificed for all when He offered himself.

I read this as those who have sexual relations with others and worship other gods will fall under a plague. Aaron then used his sword to get rid of the “plague”??? Over 24,000 died by the plague. A census of the New Generation was taken (over 20 years old). Talk about the “clans” of people. The census was HUGE. This helped the inheritance by Aaron and Moses. Most of the clans died in the wilderness. God had given the Israelites land that was to be divided up (from census). The Lord asked for offering for a pleasing order (rules) Sabbath offerings, monthly offerings, daily offerings, offering at Passover, even a sin offering, offering by fire, offering at the Festival of weeks. No work, the offering should be free of blemish.

The word of the Lord is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit. Jesus is tested with no sin. Jesus is the high priest passing through the heavens. Jesus has been tested as we are tested. God’s work took a rest when he completed the construction of the earth.

Talk about the priest offering from the Lord. People give to the Lord, then thee Lord gives these gifts back to the priests. “a tithe of a tithe” shall be given from the Levites. There was a ceremony of the Red Heifer. Gave the order of the process. Make sure you are clean, this is a purification offering. They need this water of purification to be sprinkled on them. Then, the staff of the Lord brought water out of the rock. This is the waters of Meribah where the people of Israel quarreled. The Israelites wanted to pass through Edoms territory.

    Lord, help me understand “the purification” of water. Does this show life as per fire?

It was declared that Cretans are always liars, vicious brutes, lazy gluttons. Help them become strong in faith. “To the pure all thing are pure”. Do not deny God by your works. If you are a young man you need to operate in self-control. Be zealous for good deeds. Speak evil to no one, and avoid quarreling, and be gentle. Avoid stupid controversies. Devote yourselves to good works in order to meet urgent needs. Grace be with all of you.

    Spies were sent into Canaan, they were sent by Moses. Gave names of these spies. They went to do a little recon of the land. The spies brought back the fruit of the land. Though, the people were strong. The Israelites were not impressed by the sent spies, the land flows with milk and honey (was this the promised land?). These people did not believe in the Lord, they confronted Moses. Remember, the Lord is slow to anger! The Israelites were complaining against the Lord. The congregation learned that Gog was not going to be with the people. More talk about offering by fire (pleasing odor to the Lord). When you eat, you need to give an offering. Don’t disobey the Lords commandments. Note: A person who was collecting sticks on Sabbath was stoned to death. To be cut off from the people. Moses was told by the Lord to stone him to death. (Ouch!) The use of fringes on garmen to remind yourselves of the Lords commandments. Moses was confronted by leaders of the congregation. The glory of the Lord appeared to the whole congregation. Moses was sent to separate the congregation. The earth swallowed the congregation. Moses was told to get rid of the congregation (by a plague). Aaron was told by Moses to take a censer, light it, put incense on it, and make atonement for these people.

Jesus taught people at the festival. He even healed a person in the sabbath. Jesus did not come alone. The Lord will go where the police can not go. Talk about the spirit. Was Jesus the messiah? The police were impressed by Jesus teaching. A woman was caught in adulty. Moses said to stone this person. Jesus says anyone who has not sinned can throw the first stone. Thus, no one condemned her and Jesus says “neither do I”….go and sin no more. Jesus judging is valid. Jesus foretells his death, other will die in their sins. People did not understand about the Father. “The truth will set you free”. Jesus did not come by himself, the father sent Him. Whoever keeps my word will never taste death. Jesus met a blind mind, Jesus is the light of the world, he spat on the ground and told him to wash at the pool of Siloam. Thus, the blind person could see. Jesus helped him receive his sight. It was done on the sabbath. The Pharisees were disciples of Mosses., but the blind man was a disciple of Jesus. Where did Jesus comes from? Jesus asks the blind person (who now has sight) Do you believe in the son of man.? “If you were blind, you would not have sin”. So what does this mean? Does this mean our eyes are bad? Do we need to remove our eyes?

    Better to be poor and walk with integrity the one who speaks in perversion Desire without knowledge is not good. One’s own folly leads to ruin. Wealth brings many friends but the poor are left friendless. To get wisdom is to love oneself. A liar will not escape and will perish. It’s not fitting for a fool to live in luxury. Those who are of good sense are slow to anger and can overlook an offense. Laziness brings on a deep sleep. Those who keep the commandment will live. Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and will be repaid in full. Discipline your child while there is hope. Listen to advice and accept instructions which will lead to wisdom in the future. It’s better to be poor than being a liar. Loyalty is desire in a person. Strike a scoffer and the simple will learn prudence. A worthless witness mocks at justice. Condemnation is ready for scoffers.

    Give thanks to God by his own works. All evildoers shall scatter. The righteous shall flourish. The Lord is robed in good. God will have a vengeance. Give to the proud what they deserve. All the evil doers boast. Pit is dug for the wicked. So let us knell down and worship our God.

    A sabbath for the land every seven years where nothing wil be grown, the soil will rest. Then allow the jubilee rights with your neighbors. The Lord says (declares) that the land is mine. You shall support those who are dependent upon you, they shall not be slaves. Treat them well! No one is to rule over others in harshness. Have no idles and I will provide peace to the land. Your reward will come from the field, you will harvest well. If you break my covenant I will punish you up to 7 times (7 fold), will bring sword among you. You will not be satisfied when you eat. If you obey me, you will be at peace. The equivalent was made for an offering. MAYBE A TITHE?

The day of the Lord is already here. The act of lawlessness is already at work. Don’t be alarmed by the spirit! Unrighteousness people will be condemned. God chose us through the spirit that we may be rescued from the wicked and evil people. So pray for us, be faithful.

    John 1-2

    The word was God and what came into the world was from within God. The light came from God and John was brought to testify to the light. Grace and truth came from Jesus Christ. Then John the Baptist testified in font of Jews and priests. They ask – “who are you”. He replies of being “one crying out in the wilderness”. They also question him of Baptizing if he is not the Messiah nor Elijah, or a prophet. We says “I baptize with water” but the one who is coming after me; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandal. John the Baptist declares “Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”. JtB declare the he saw the spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him. Disciple Simon was to be called Cephas. Jesus said “COME AND SEE” when talking to Nathanael. Next is the wedding at Cana, the wine gave out, and Jesus change jars of water, for purification, into wine. This is the first sign. Jesus cleanses the temple by removing the “market place” from the temple.

Even directions for the placement of the alter. Also a bull or ram for sin offering (or of well being). The gate of the temple needs to shut.. No foreigners shall enter my sanctuary. They shall not serve me. Rules for drinking, judgements, marriage, hair,….etc. was discussed. For the land of inheritance a holy should be constructed with a sanctuary. The most holy place. Put away violence and oppression. Was even told what should be given for atonement for their offering. (one tenth). More talk about sacrificing a bull for purification and for cleansing. MORE BURNT OFFERINGS. Was even shown where the sin offering was to be boiled for the sin offering. Water was flowing from the temple (coming out the South side). The water became a river. Wherever the water goes there will be life. The river will provide fresh water. The Lord divided up the land to the 12 tribes of Israel. Names of the tribes were discussed with their portion of inheritance of the land. WHAT’S A CUBIT??? (MEASURMENT IN METERS).

    A devious person despises God
    A faithful witness does not lie
    A scoffer seeks wisdom in vain
    Fools do not find words of knowledge
    Fools mock the sin offering
    The simple believes in everything while the clever considers their steps
    One who is quick tampered acts foolishly
    The clever is crowed with knowledge
    the evil bow down to the good
    the rich have many friends
    those who despise their neighbors are sinners
    crown of wise is wisdom
    fear of the Lord is the foundation of life
    the tongue dispenses knowledge, the mouth of fools pour out folly
    A gentle tongue is the tree to life
    the Lord loves the one who pursues righteousness
    Sorrow of heart will break your spirit
    The mind of one who has understanding seeks knowledge

    Manasseh was evil in front of God, started to reign when he was only 12 years old. He shed innocent blood. Amon was next in power and he did not walk in the way of God. Then Josiah reigned (when he was 8 years old). Found the book of the law and it read that God would bring disaster to their place. After this Josiah had a REFORMATION to God along the inhabitant of Jerusalem and Judea to follow Him and keep his commandments. He opposed all wizards and evil things. He broke, burned, and destroyed all evil things that oppose God. Passover was held in Jerusalem. There was no King ever who practiced reformation to God. Pharaoh Necco did evil in front of the Lord…he also taxed heavily. Judah was run over by their enemies. Zedekiah was 21 years when the started to reign over Judea. Famine became an issue for Judea. Zedekiah was captured and his eyes were removed (OUCH). Jehoiachin was treated kindly and dined with the Kings presence (for whom he was captured)..

    Was instructed on how to use the offerings from the people of Israel. So they don’t profane His holy name. If you come across these offering when you are unclean, you will be “cut off”. You must wash your body and will not be clean until evening. Talk about what is acceptable to God as a free will offering, nothing with a blemish, rules for a slaughter of an offering. Also talked about appointed Festivals like the Sabbath, Passover, and unleavened bread. Sabbath you shall do no work. You also need to bring some of your first fruits from your harvest. Duties for the sacrifice of “well-being”. Now don’t reap to the very edge of the field; you shall leave them for the poor and for the alien. I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT ATONEMENT MEANS. Like deny yourself. DO NO WORK. Also, THE FESTIVAL OF BOOTHS??? there IS ALSO A TIME LI,ITFOR THE FESTIVLE OF BOOTHS. The Lord asked for pure olives to burn in a lamp “regularly”. It should be a statue forever. On pure gold. For bread you need 12 loaves of bread THIS 12 THING??? Stoning of the blasphemer. Life for life.

Elisha asked for the spirit of Elijah. Elisha preforms miracles by making water wholesome (to this day). Jehoram reigned for 12 years over Israel. Then war with Moab the sheep breeder. After marching for 7 days there was no water. They then called Elisha to help getting them water. After some music, the wadi was filled with water, people and animals can drink. God will also hand Moab over to the kings (Israel). Elisha and the widows oil, filling vessels, sell the oil and pay you debts.. The staff of the man of God didn’t work and Elisha brought to child back to life. Elisha purifies the pot of stew by throwing more flower in the stew to purify the “death” in the stew. Elisha also feeds 100 men. They called them all to eat and have some left. SIMILIAR TO THE 5 LOAVES OF BREAD. They also tear there cloths…I don’t understand???? The leprosy cure, wash 7 times in the Jordon, in which Naamn became very angry, asking why the Jordon? The profit was right, and he was clean. The Lord did not accept a present. “Go in peace”. Elisha sent his spirit with Gehazi the servant, but because of his greed Gehazi and family will have this leprosy gene with him forever.

A creditor wanted to take the widow’s two children as slaves for the debt. The vessels that were brought to her was filled with oil, that would be sold, to pay off her debts.

Then parable about the dishonest businessman, who made “the art of the deal” to all debtors of his masters money. Then “whoever is faithful in very little is faithful also in much, and whoever is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much.. The Pharisees heard this and they ridiculed him.

    The mission of the 12 apostille who got power and authority over all demons and to cure disease. Do not take anything with you. Jesus fed five thousand of food with 5 loaves and 2 fish. They all ate. “Who do they say that I am”. About 8 days later there was a transfiguration with Moses and Elijah present. With Peter. The cloud then came and covered them. When they came down from the mountain Jesus healed a boy from a demon. Jesus then tells about his death. Jesus says follow me, spread Gods word. The Lord appointed 70 more people to move from house to house and spread the good news. We don’t want the dust of the ground (the non believers) to be with us. The 70 returned and were joyful….Jesus was rejoiceful for even the demons fear us. ITS THIS SPIRIT THING. The parable as the Good Samaritan…everyone is your neighbor. The reading ends with Martha and Mary. Mary was sitting at Jesus’ feet listening to Him.

In 480 years after Egypt (release of the Israeli people) the hose was built. The house was 40 cubit lang. Overlaid the house with gold. Talk about the inside of the house. All stones were cut to measure. Solomon made all the vessels in the house. Brought the Arc of the Covenant into the house (in the most holy place). The King blessed the house. Solomon also prayed for dedication of his promise; “Walk before me”. Render forgiveness to others, so all people know your name and FEAR you. Look for repentance of those who have sinned against you. Then Solomon blessed the assembly of Israel. Devote yourself to the Lord. God appears again to Solomon, the Lord says be faithful to me, and do not forsake me. Solomon built the wall of Jerusalem.

Solomon was building his own house for 13 years.. In his house judgement was made in the “Hall of Justice”. Hiram was the bronzeworker for Solomon. The tent stands were created being three cubits high. The stands were on wheels (all cast alike). Hiram completed all the work he did on the house of the Lord. He stored his special gifts in the treasury of the temple.. When finished they decided to bring the Arc of the Covenant to the house of the Lord (dedication, brought the Arc from Zion). This was built in direction of David (Solomon David’s son). Word of rewarding people for their righteousness. The Lord will punish the evil, people need to watch “their ways”. Question: if you sin do you get turned over to your enemy? Solomon blesses the people saying “follow his commandments”. God shows up again to Solomon, he said walk before me (will give him the throne of Israel). Hiram was given 20 cities for his work. Solomon had forced labor to build his cities.

  240. I thank our Scriber for his leading on this web site & all of his other guidance leading us to deeper spiritual growth! For years, I have used “Daily Guideposts Devotional” (thanks to a good friend) & today’s was very educational. Gail Thorell Schilling wrote of how volunteers in the Bok Tower Gardens were learning how flowers must attract pollinators (insects/birds/bats) to help the plants produce seeds to ensure the next generation. “flowers flaunt alluring designs…eye-popping colors irresistible to the pollinators. Many flowers, however are plain white…these less showy blossoms attract essential pollinators with their strong fragrances (i.e. gardenia, jasmine etc.)” Gail compared this natural occurrence to the “visible & not-so-visible ways church members perpetuate the faith for the next generation.” Some are very visible, (clergy, choir, council members, leaders) others, more introverted souls, not-so-visible, (coffee makers, lawn mowers, mailers of greeting cards, visitors of shut-ins, food preparers, volunteer lawn/property caregivers). I agree with Gail, ” Few who feed, console or teach make headlines, but they do make folks feel welcomed enough to stick around & become helpers themselves. No, one doesn’t need to be the center of attention to perpetuate a beautiful legacy of love.” We all have our own God-given gifts/talents to use where we are at in life, to reflect God’s light & love to those around us. God, please help us all to discern & do your will.

    Job 29-30

    Job seems bitter, stating all the good things he had done. Then the people he helped they are left outside the land. The Lord has humbled Job. Job calls out for help….no ones there! Days of affliction has come to me.

    Psalm 42-44

    People ask where is your God? He is the rock and he is lookover your life. Help defend me against those who are deceitful. Your right hand gave the victories for David. Are Christians laughing stocks? You have not done us good. We are like sheep for slaughter. Redeem us to show your steadfast love. This Psalm is like a plea to God. Even though the faith is still present, the scriber thinks the readings are asking for a “show me” sign.

    When it comes to the elders they would always wash their hand before they ate, and also make sure that you have clean utensils. . (defiled hands) Some people honor their father or mother. Dishonor and you will die. Bad this comes from the heart, it within evil intention. Jesus was on a healing tour.

    Jeremiah proclaim the judgement of the Lord, because this is the temple of the Lord. Don’t think that you are safe! God might cast you out of his site if you provoke God. We need to obey Gods voice. The wise will be put to shame. Reading tells us to beware of our neighbors. Beware of idolatry, like scarecrows, they have to be carried everywhere the go.
