THOUGHTS FOR KEEPING.............................................THOUGHTS FOR SHARING

                                                     BBPA TALK 10/12/09 

 

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
Serve the Lord with gladness;
come before his presence with singing.
Know ye that the Lord he is God;
it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise;
be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations.

 Psalm 100

Greetings in the name of Jesus, Love to All WHO LOVE THE LORD...AS GOD LOVES US

Today, I am led by the Holy Spirit to Pray...I am moved to pray deeply, unto the Spirit, which gives utterance (in other words, the tongues of the Holy Spirit speaks).  And now I will give this time of peace... to be still and wait upon the Lord...of the working of the Holy Spirit to the will of God, for in His Words are the Revelations; His Wisdom and His Miracles; Manifestations of His Glory...which gives Light (Enlightens our minds) and fills our Hearts with a new song...passioned with His Grace and Everlasting Love.

Therefore, today I would like to share the Word of God...as 'It Is Written'. 

John 14 >>
King James Bible
 


1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? 23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me.

25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. 27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. 30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. 31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.


<< John 14 >>

THOUGHTS FOR KEEPING.............................................THOUGHTS FOR SHARING

                                                     BBPA TALK 10/05/09  

GREETINGS!   PRAISE THE LORD ALWAYS!  TODAY IS ANEW AND BEAUTIFUL IN THE SIGHT OF GOD.  I'M ESPECIALLY GLAD and OVERJOYED...IN THE SPIRIT OF LOVE AND BEAUTY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.  (THIS ARTICLE WAS MY WRITTEN RESPONSE (COMMENTS) TO THE STREAMING FAITH DAILY DEVOTIONAL ~ OCT. 5TH, 2009, (BY DR. ZACHARY TIMS JR.).... THE ARTICLE WAS ‘RIGHT-ON-TIME’ FOR ME, AS I'M SURE IT IS, FOR THE ENTIRE "BODY OF CHRIST". 

WE AS CHRISTIANS....BEAR WITNESS TO THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE LOVE AND AMAZING GRACE OF OUR LORD, SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.  I MUST SAY (I BELIEVE), THAT WE AS CHRISTIANS, ARE GUIDED BY THE ‘ONENESS’ OF THE HOLY SPIRIT’; AND WE "THINK ALIKE".  THEREFORE, I AM INSPIRED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT TO SHARE, WHAT THE SPIRIT SPEAKS...TO ME REGARDING THE "Streaming Faith-DAILY DEVOTIONAL".  ~~ AS I WAS READING TODAY'S ARTICLE, IT WAS IF THE SPEAKER HAS READ MY MIND AND SPIRIT...TO THE EXACT LAST WORD.  I AM A (POET) WRITER, AND JUST HOURS BEFORE READING THIS ARTICLE....THE HOLY SPIRIT DID SPEAK TO MY HEART ABOUT (THIS SUBJECT); PRIORITIZING MATTERS OF OUR DAILY CHRISTIAN WALK...AND HAVING AN 'INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP' WITH GOD.  I CONSTANTLY (DAILY) HAVE A TALK AND WALK WITH GOD, EVERYDAY.  THAT IS A BLESSING IN ITSELF; ~~ MORESO, IT PLANTS A SEED IN THE HEART, AND THAT GROWS INTO A “HEART-TO-HEART” INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP.  KNOW THAT GOD (THE HOLY SPIRIT) SEARCHES THE HEART. 

Jeremiah 17:9-10: 9.  "The heart is more deceitful than all else
And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?
10.  "I the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give to each man according to his ways,
According to the results of his deeds. (New American Standard)

IF OUR HEARTS ARE NOT ‘WELL’... THE HOLY SPIRIT KNOWS...and THERE IS NO PLACE FOR IT TO DWELL THERE-IN.  THEREFORE, IT WILL NOT IMPOSE ITS WAY INTO OUR ‘BEING’.  WE HAVE TO BE WILLING, READY AND ‘WELL-ABLE’... TO OPENING OUR HEARTS AND MINDS  (TO CHANGE),  AND TO RECEIVE.   AS KING DAVID, WE SHOULD DESIRE TO BECOME FULL OF 'PASSION', IN OUR GODLY RELATIONSHIPS.  SEEKING GOD FIRST... (AS THE EYES AWAKE EACH DAY)... PRAISING HIM AND THANKING HIM FOR A 'NEW DAY', FOR HIS 'DAILY BREAD', AND FOR HIS MANY_UNFORSEEN BLESSINGS TO COME_ WITH EACH NEW DAY.   THEN AS WE CARRY ON WITH OUR DAILY AFFAIRS, LIKE DAVID, WE'LL DESIRE TO KEEP GOD ON OUR MINDS, TO BE OUR CONSTANT COMPANION, OUR CLOSEST FRIEND.  ENLIGHTENING OUR UNDERSTANDING, WITH HIS WORDS, AND LEADING US INTO THE PATH OF 'DAILY BLESSINGS'.

GOD IS RIGHT HERE AND NEAR TODAY... TO BE OUR ALL; OUR EYES, OUR EARS, OUR MOTIVATION, OUR HEARTS AND MINDS, OUR SPIRIT...IF WE WILL JUST LET HIM BE!  SEEK HIS WAY, NOT OUR OWN, AND ALLOW HIM TO DO "HIS THING" IN OUR DAILY LIVES.  I TELL YOU, MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, WHEN YOU ALLOW HIM TO "DO THE WORK"...IN HIS WILL...IN HIS WAY...IT WILL ALWAYS,... I MEAN ABSOLUTELY, WITHOUT A DOUBT... BRING NOTHING SHORT OF HAPPINESS, JOY AND REWARD.  FURTHERMORE, YOU'LL BE LESS TIRED, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT "WHAT TO DO NEXT", WHEN YOU KNOW YOU'VE RUN OUT OF SUCESSFUL OPTIONS.  EVEN MORE, GOD WILL NOT EVER "MAKE A MISTAKE".  WHEN HE'S ON THE JOB, HE DOESN'T NEED TO TAKE A LUNCH-BREAK, BE EXCUSED, TAKE A NAP, EAT, GO TO SLEEP AT NIGHT, GET BACK UP IN THE MORNING, TO TRY THE "SAME OLD THING" ALL OVER AGAIN.  YOU SEE, GOD KNOWS WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS.  HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TODAY... IN ORDER FOR TOMORROW TO BE FULL-FILLING...TO OUR EXACT NEEDS. 

 

THERE IS ONLY ONE THING LEFT FOR US TO DO, EACH DAY...WE OUGHT TO WAKE UP, THANKING GOD TO SEE A "NEW DAY", ASKING HIM TO "TAKE-OVER"; BE OUR 'ALL-IN-ALL'...WAY-MAKER AND 'DAILY LEADER'.  NOW, TRULY, THIS IS THE WAY TO SPEND A DAY!  FROM SUNRISE TO SUNSET AND ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT...HE KEEPS WATCH OVER US.  LET US RECEIVE THE FULLNESS OF GOD; THAT COMES WHEN HAVING A CLOSE...AND CONSTANT (DAILY) RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.  NOW, HERE-IN (OUR HEARTS) IS THE GRACE AND LOVE AND JOY OF THE GOD-RELATIONSHIP.  AS APOSTLE PAUL SAID; 'THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS MADE, LET'S REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT". (Psalms 118:24)

 

SO, TODAY'S (Streaming Faith) ARTICLE IS A WONDERFUL MESSAGE, A WAKE-UP CALL, AND MORE!  AS FOR ME, I'VE BECOME MORE "DISCIPLINED" (BY FAITH AND DETERMINATION).  NOW I MAKE IT A PRIORITY EACH DAY, TO WAKE UP WITH JESUS 'ONTHE BRAIN'.  I DON'T LET GO EITHER....NO, NO, NO!  I CARRY JESUS WITH ME EVERYWHERE I GO, ALL THROUGH THE DAY, BECAUSE WITHOUT HIM....I DON'T KNOW.  WITH AN ITIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD (DAILY), ALL THINGS FOR HIS PURPOSE, IN MY LIFE ARE REVEALED.

 

PRAISE YOU GOD, FOR YOUR MERCIFUL KINDNESS, AND FOR GIVING US "ALL OF YOU", FOR THE ASKING.  I PRAY WE AWAKE, SEEKING YOU (GOD) FIRST...THAT BEING OUR 'NO.1 PRIORITY'...EACH AND EVERY DAY.  I PRAY WE LIVE DAILY IN THE LIGHT OF LOVE; AND GREET ONE ANOTHER IN THE SPIRIT OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.  ~~ AGAIN, I SAY; THESE ARE THE KIND OF DAYS GOD HAS MADE, AND DESIRE FOR US TO LIVE...IN THE LOVE AND LIGHT OF HIS BEING.  LET THIS BE THE ...'DAYS OF OUR LIVES'...THANK YOU JESUS.

 

GOD BLESS, LOVE to ALL

Vannessa Garrett

THOUGHTS FOR KEEPING.............................................THOUGHTS FOR SHARING

                                                     BBPA TALK 10/04/09 

STANDING IN THE SUN….OF A BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY AFTERNOON.   THE SUNLIGHT IS SPARKLING AND REFRESHING, AS IT ENLIGHTENS.  IT HOLDS THE GRACE AND BEAUTY OF GOD SO PERFECTLY.  SO MAGNIFICENT ARE THE RAYS…THAT NO ONE CAN DIRECTLY STARE (FOR TOO LONG) INTO THE FACE OF THE SUN…OF GOD.   THE FULLNESS IS JUST TOO MUCH FOR OUR TENDER HUMAN EYES TO EXTENSIVELY BEHOLD.  IF YOU TRY TO LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN, LONGER THAN YOU SHOULD, IT WILL DISTORT THE (EYESIGHT) PUPILS UNTO THE POINT OF BLINDNESS. 

HAVING SEEN THE GLORY OF GOD IN JESUS CHRIST….WHAT A MAGNIFICENT BLESSING TO BEHOLD…FOR THOSE WHO ACTUALLY WITNESSED HIM IN HUMAN FLESH.  WHAT AN AWESOME GOD!  THEREFORE, I AM REMINDED OF THE DAYS OF MOSES…WHEN GOD CALLED OUT TO MOSES, TO GO UP INTO THE MOUNTAIN (MT. HOREB); AND WHEN MOSES ASCENDED UNTO THE PLACE WHERE GOD HAD CALLED HIM, AN ANGEL OF THE LORD APPEARED TO MOSES IN A FLAME OF FIRE…IN THE MIDST OF A BURNING BUSH.  THEN MOSES NOTICES THAT THE BUSH WAS NOT BURNED…NOT CONSUMED BY THE FLAME OF FIRE.  THIS MOST CERTAINLY WAS SUCH AN OVERWHELMING SIGHT, THAT MOSES COULD BARELY BELIEVE HIS EYES. (SEE EXODUS 3:3).  THERE HE WAS…STANDING IN THE HOLY PRESENCE OF GOD…THAT PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH (HOLY GROUND), WHERE GOD BEGAN TO SPEAK TO HIM.  GOD SPOKE TO MOSES OUT OF THE MIDST OF A BURNING BUSH….SAYING, “I AM THE GOD OF YOUR FATHER, THE GOD OF ABRAHM, THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB”.  MOSES MUST HAVE TREMBLED AT THE VOICE OF GOD….AND “HID HIS FACE BECAUSE HE WAS AFRAID TO LOOK UPON” …‘THE BURNING IMAGE’ … GOD.   EVER SO AMAZING WAS THE ACTS OF GOD SHOWN TO MOSES, THERE IN THE FACE OF THE BURNING BUSH.

AS GOD TOLD MOSES TO “CAST HIS ROD ON THE GROUND”, AND THE ROD BECAME A SERPENT...AND GOD SAID “REACH OUT YOUR HAND AND CATCH IT BY THE TAIL”…MOSES REACHED OUT HIS HAND AND CAUGHT THE SERPENT BY THE TAIL, "AND IT BECAME A ROD IN HIS HAND".  FURTHERMORE, GOD TOLD MOSES TO PUT HIS HAND INTO HIS BOSUM AND MOSES DID SO…WHEN HE REMOVED HIS HAND, IT WAS LEPROUS.  GOD TOLD MOSES TO PUT HIS HAND INTO HIS BOSUM AGAIN, AND AFTER MOSES HAD PUT HIS HAND INTO HIS BOSUM THE SECOND TIME…HE REMOVED HIS HAND AND IT WAS RESTORED TO ITS NATURAL FLESH, (EXODUS 4). SUCH AN AMAZING AND EYE-WITNESSING ACCOUNT OF GOD’S POWER!  THESE ACTS WERE TO TEACH MOSES AND THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL …. THAT GOD ALONE… IS THE ALMIGHTY….ALL POWERFUL GOD.   AS MOSES WAS UNSURE OF HIS ABILITY TO LEAD THE PEOPLE OUT OF THE BONDAGE OF THE EGYPTIANS, GOD PERFORMED THESE ACTS OF POWER, TO GIVE MOSES THE COURAGE AND STRENGTH, WITH INSTRUCTIONS (THE WORD OF GOD), TO GO BACK TO THE PEOPLE AND TELL THEM WHAT GOD HAD SPOKEN.   MOSES SAID TO GOD, “INDEED, WHEN I COME TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL AND SAY TO THEM, ‘THE GOD OF YOUR FATHERS HAS SENT ME TO YOU,’ AND THEY SAY TO ME, ‘WHAT IS HIS NAME?’ WHAT SHALL I SAY TO THEM?”  AND GOD SAID TO MOSES, “I AM WHO I AM.” AND GOD SAID, “THUS YOU SHALL SAY TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, ‘I AM HAS SENT ME TO YOU.’ ”

THE ULTIMATE PROMISE GOD MADE TO DELIVER HIS PEOPLE, OUT OF ISRAEL; OUT OF THE WILDERNESS…AND THE BONDAGE OF THE EGYPTIANS WAS KEPT, AND THUS GOD ESTABLISHES THE PASSOVER…THE (FIRST) SIGN OF THE BLOOD, WHICH IS FOR THE SALVATION OF THOSE WHO ARE COVERED (BY THE BLOOD).  (EXODUS 12).  WHATEVER GOD HAS WILLED FOR 'HIS OWN', THE WORLD CANNOT TAKE AWAY.  IN EXODUS 14:13, MOSES SAID TO THE PEOPLE, “DO NOT BE AFRAID.  STAND STILL, AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD, WHICH HE WILL ACCOMPLISH FOR YOU TODAY.  FOR THE EGYPTIANS WHOM YOU SEE TODAY, YOU SHALL SEE AGAIN NO MORE FOREVER.  THE LORD WILL FIGHT FOR YOU, AND YOU SHALL HOLD YOUR PEACE.”

AS CHRISTIANS, WE WILL BE CONFRONTED, PROVOKED, FALSELY ACCUSED AND ATTACKED (BY THE PHAROAOHs OF OUR TIME), AS WE WALK THROUGH OUR JOURNEYS (WITH JESUS) TO THE CROSS.  BUT AS IN THE DAYS OF MOSES, WE HAVE A WAY OF ESCAPE…THAT HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED, BY THE BLOOD, OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, WHO IS WITH US ALWAYS.  NEVER FEAR, FOR HIS LOVE IS PURE, AND IS ALL CONQUERING…WHEREFORE, WE ARE ABLE TO ENDURE ALL THINGS.  WE SHALL REJOICE IN GOD’S EVERLASTING LOVE AND SAVING GRACE.

SO, ON THIS BLESSED DAY, AS ALL DAYS…. I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH ALL FELLOW CHRISTIANS, FAMILY, FRIENDS AND LOVE ONES….ONE OF MY FAVORITE SCRIPTURES;  OF THE ALL SAVING LOVE, MERCY AND GRACE OF OUR MOST HIGH GOD…THE GREAT…” I AM”.

HEBREWS 4:16  “LET US THEREFORE COME BOLDLY UNTO THE THRONE OF GRACE, THAT WE MAY OBTAIN MERCY AND FIND GRACE TO HELP IN TIME OF NEED.”  

 Blackbutterfly Songs & Lyrics:  'Let Us Come Bodly Unto the Throne of Grace' 

 Love to All, God Bless,Vannessa Garrett
