A simple truth #1: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

A simple truth.   A truth so real to me, that it pains me when unbelievers, do not accept it.

~Jesus loves us.
~Jesus is the only way to the Father.
~Jesus gives true peace and joy.

Simple truths, not believed, laughed at, ridiculed, rejected.

Then there are the believers who refuse to believe these simple truths.

~The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is real and a special Gift, imparted to whosoever will believe.
~The Gifts of the Holy Spirit are given to us today to build His Church.  From the 5 fold ministry to the Gifts in 1st Corinthians 12-14.
~There is no expiration date on the gifts and calling of God, they are forever, for whosoever will, receive, (accept), them.

Simple truths, not believed, laughed at, ridiculed,

It truly pains me when these simple truths are rejected by mankind, but there are other simple truths we need to recognize also.

The simple truths we find Psalm 76 for example.

Psalm 76:1-3
King James Version (KJV)
In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel.   In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.   There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.”

Simple truth #1:
~In Judah is God known:

The word Judah simply means praise.  It was first revealed in the story of Jacob and Leah, the unloved wife.

She was the first to bear children for Jacob.  They were named for the Lords reaction to her prayers.  (Please check out the entire story).

Genesis 29:31-35  (selected parts)
King James Version (KJV)
And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.”

And Leah conceived, a son, and she called him Reuben: for, Surely the Lord hath looked upon my affliction;”  Reuben, means, looked or saw.

And she bare a son; and said, Because the Lord heard I was hated, she called his name Simeon.”  Simeon, means heard or listened.

And she bare a son; Now this time will my husband be joined unto me, his name is called Levi.”  Levi, means joined.  (Our job as Gods Levites today is to join men to Him).

And she bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: she called his name Judah;”
Judah simply means PRAISE.

Simple truth #1
~In Praise is God known.
A Simple truth, not believed, laughed at, ridiculed, rejected by the quiet, reverent churchs. 

They complain about the 7\11 choruses, not understanding, the Power of repetition for memorizing and meditation of the Word.  It seems to be ok to memorize the multiplication tables, but not the Word of God.

Singing and repeating Gods truths, builds us up in Him, makes us strong, gives us the Word in our hearts in our time of need.

To know God is to sing, tell, yell and play His PRAISE.  SHOUT UNTO GOD WITH A VOICE OF TRIUMPH.

Let the world know of His love of us and our love of Him.  We gain knowledge and power in PRAISE. 

Psalm 22:3
King James Version (KJV)
But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

We are Gods chosen people today.

He inhabits our Praise. 

If we would learn to Praise as a church, we could see, people comming to Salvation, our families finding peace and joy, maybe even those in need  healed.

Praise shows Gods Name great.  We Magnify,   Glorify, Exult, Worship, lift high….as we humble ourselves and recognize His Majesty.

A Simple Truth #1:
~Please learn to let go and let God lead you into true praise.

As you sing and repeat Gods word, you can lose yourself in the joy and majesty, love and peace of God.

Thanks for visiting. Come back soon.
Know you are loved.

  1. Bill, we part ways a bit when it comes to what praise is. Praise is a life lifted up to the Lord. It does not take me thirty-four times to memorize “He Loves Me.” I say to bring back some testimony type songs such as Love Lifted Me. Many people do not sing this because they cannot identify with “I was sinking deep in sin —- but Love lifted me.” I think it is because we do not experience being lifted out of sin very much. We do still love Amazing Grace but there is not much Victory in Jesus. Saying words out of a dirty vessel is not accepted by God no matter the loudness and number of times it is said. I don’t claim that the vessel must be sin free but it must be blood covered. And “Are You Washed in the Blood?” is long gone I’ve pretty much had it with the folks who can “worship lead” then walk off the stage to go get coffee and donuts. Hey, still friends?
