A Psalm of Praise: theunfetteredpreacher

Psalm 57:9-11

“I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the peoples: I will sing praises unto thee among the nations. For thy lovingkindness is great unto the heavens, And thy truth unto the skies. Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; [Let] thy glory [be] above all the earth.”

I have not sung this Psalm for a long while. It is once again in my head and heart.

Thanks for visiting.

We all have the relationship we desire with God. My desire is for an intimate one.

It hath pleased the Lord: 3 theunfetteredpreacher

Revelation 4: 11.

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

The Universe’s and all that is in them, including ‘we the people,’ were created for God’s Pleasure.

We find Jesus, as a man, doing God’s will, Pleasing Him.

So how do we Please Him?

■ By Speaking, Preaching, Sharing the Gospel. (1 Thessalonians 2:4)

■ Do good and to communicate, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. (Hebrews 13:16)

■ The Sacrifices, of Reverence and Awe come from an appreciation of who God is. Acceptable worship combines these motives. (Hebrews 12:28,29)

■ Visiting widows and orphans, Sacrifices of words must be accompanied by deeds of love toward others. (James 1:27)

■ Helping others Financially (Philippians 4:18)

■ That we present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is our reasonable service. (Romans 12:1)

■ Enoch, pleased God. He believed that God IS. (Hebrews 11:5,6)

■ It pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. (1 Corinthians 1:21)

All these things Please God. When God is Pleased, we receive a promice.

Proverbs 16:7

When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

When we do not please God, by not believing on His Word, or Trusting in His Protection. We may die in the wilderness. (1 Corinthians 10:5)

It is easier to question God, than to believe Him. We gladly except the Promise of Salvation, we feel the weight of Sin and Shame leave us as we are Filled with Christ.

We fail, by not following up, by sacrificing our wants and desires, in study and prayer, accepting God’s way, by Walking With Him.

Matthew 5: 6.

Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.”

To Please God, to be truly Righteous, we must Hunger and Thirst for More of Him.

Set our faces, like flint, to love, Worship and obey Jesus, as He leads and guide’s us by the Holy Spirit.

Saints, learn to set your hearts, to Pleasing God. You believe and you are blessed now.

Walk with Him, and receive His Blessings, a new.


thy words be true: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

2 Samuel 7
“28 And now, O Lord God, thou art that God, and thy words be true, and thou hast promised this goodness unto thy servant:”

At this time the Ark of God was still residing in a tent.  David had wanted to build the Lord a house.


The Lord would not allow it, but He promised to build David an everlasting house. (family). 

Jesus was born from the family line of David.

In Davids prayer of praise and thanksgiving we find verse 28.  David acknowledges who and what God will do.

“You are God, Your words are true, You have promised me good things….because I am Your Servant.”

Gods words are true, He is God, He has given us many wonderful promises. 

How many do we realize?   Not as many as He promised. 


David was a true servant of the Lord.  A love slave, who knew how to sing, pray, praise, honor and obey the Lord.

We are promised so much in the Word.  From the peace that passes understanding to joy unspeakable, full of glory.

From healing the sick to raising the dead.  From being the head, to receiving a crown. 

Blessings here on earth now, to our homes in heaven.

All these promises are true.  Are we true Servants, (love slaves), of the Lord?

We must learn to yearn to be His, desire to be holy, spotless, perfect in our love, if not our lives. 

Our old man refuses to stay dead,  we sin, we miss the mark, we disappoint each other and ourselves.

As long as we take responsibility for our actions and ask forgiveness, He is Faithful and just to both Forgive and Forget.

We are the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, as long as we remain under the covering of His blood.

Become a love slave.  Read, Meditate on all the Word of God.

Jesus freed us from the law, but not from the Blessings of Holiness, Trust, Obedience.

He didn’t relieve us the Blessings of Praise, Prayer or Fellowship with the the Lord.

He just made it more Personel, Easy, Fruitful.

Learn to sing the Word to the Lord, from the writings of Moses to John, there is plenty to sing, praise and pray.

Find the scriptures that speak to you today.  They are there for the Strength, Forgiveness, Hope, Direction, Comfort….whatever, whosoever (you and me), needs.

God is there.  His promises are true.  He has Goodness and Good things for those who are true Servants of His.


Lord, help us to be love slaves of You.  Amen.

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

3 Lords of the Old Testament

The English language translation of the Old Testament is troublesome.   We have one English word that we use for 3 different Hebrew/Chaldee words.   The word that is so overused is Lord.

In Genesis 1 we find that God (Elohim in the Hebrew/Chaldee language and means Creator/Ruler), created the heaven and earth.  And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.  The Ruach or breath or breeze of Elohim moved upon the face of the waters.

We see the Lord mentioned for the first time here:
Genesis 2:4
King James Version (KJV)
4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,

The Lord mentioned in Genesis 2:4 is from the Hebrew word Yahweh,  which the Hebrew people were not allowed to speak.   So they  added a few vowels to make it Yahovah, which in turn we made Jehovah.   Which means the  Self Existent or  Eternal One.   This is the word used must often for the God of Old Testament,  the law, or as I think of Him, Father God.

We have the word lord translated from the Hebrew word Adoni,  which means a physical man, a ruler, rich man of that time.

Than we have The Lord from the word Adonay,  another name for the Lord,  which means Sovereign Controller.

Psalm 110:1
King James Version (KJV)
110 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.       Jehovah said to Adonay.   So I read it as the Father talking to the Son.

Forget Not : Part 3 Moses final warnings:

In Part 1 Moses commanded us to:

   Forget Not: What we have seen and teach it to others

Part 2:

   You will inherit the land, remember Gods covenant, worship Him, not money, power, prestige or people.

Rest on the Sabbath. …we must rest from our work to let God accomplish His.

So in Part 3 of Forget Not;  We have this warning:

“And thou shalt consume all the people which the Lord thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee.  If thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations are more than I; how can I dispossess them?”

The Hebrew people were to destroy all nonbelievers that lived in the promised land, because if left alive they would cause the people of God to sin.

In todays world, when we accept the Lord as Savior,  we must destroy all the sin and bad habits in our lives or they will haunt us and cause sin to trouble us in our walk with God.

“Thou shalt not be afraid of them: but shalt well remember what the Lord thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt;”

Again,  remember what the Lord has done.  He will continue to protect and provide as we walk with Him.  Gos is able to help us to conquer sin and death.

thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.

This to me is one of the verses in the Word that explains just about everything we incounter.

Why is there trouble, sickness, strife,  it’s always something.

God wants a humble church.  Not our power, strength,  wisdom.  We need to allow the Lord to administrate,  our church needs to be built on the Lords plan.

We have allowed government into our churches when we decided we needed to be tax exempt. We need support from home for missionaries.  (read and understand Mark 6).

Jesus didn’t need a pulpit,  childrens church…even a building.  We need to be obedient,  so that God can use us as vessels of His power.

He tests our love, faith, trust…

We need to let God operate through us, give the cup of water, food, cash for the poor.  Show the love of God.

Then there is the manifestation of the Spirit.   How often have we quenched the Spirit?  The evil heart of unbelief is probably the most abuse the Holy Spirit receives.

We don’t believe in tongues,  healing or miracles.   Wake up, pray the Lord forgives us. Annoints us, makes us willing and useful vessels.

I’m afraid in my life, He often finds a stiffnecked and rebellious person.  

How about you?

Forget Not: Part 1. Moses final warnings:

The last book of the Law,  Deuteronomy is the record of Moses final 4 addresses to the Hebrew children.  Like the Lord,  Moses knew people are stubborn, rebellious,  stiffnecked and forgetful.

So he reminded them of eight different lessons learned in 40 years of wondering in the desert.   We need to remember them also.

1.  Forget Not:   Deuteronomy 4:9-10
“Take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life:”

It is an incredible experience to be chosen by God, we have seen the Grace of God, (Salvation), first hand.  We need to remember the great things He has done and is doing in our lives.  We must keep them in our hearts.  We keep our souls by the renewing of our minds. (reading the Word).

Like the first generation of those who entered the promised land,  we have not witnessed the plagues the Lord laid upon Egypt but we all have personal stories of His forgiveness, mercy, love, peace, healings.

When we focus on what God has brought us through,  do not replay how terrible it was before but how wonderful it is now, that I have a comforter, teacher, healer, Savior,  King.

The horror stories of our BC years are not so different from everyone else’s.   We were all lost, alone, abused, abandoned and needful of God and His forgiveness.

What people need to hear about is Gods Grace and Love today.

“teach them thy sons,  Specially the day that thou stoodest before the Lord thy God in Horeb, when the Lord said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.”

People hear the Words of God today by the life we lead, the Love we share in financial, physical or spiritual help. (prayer)   Teach them the reverential fear of the Lord.

People will hear the call of God, if we learn to walk with God.

Acts 22:14-15
” The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth.  For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard.”

Blogging 101 day 4

Today’s Assignment: publish a post for your dream reader, and include a new-to-you element in it.

My dream reader is someone who hungers and thirsts for a closer relationship with Jesus.  The purpose of this blog and my life is to point people to the “secret place of the most high”.  (Psalm 91).

I hope that every post would cause people to dig a little deeper in the Word.   Forget what they think they know and ask the Lord to draw them closer.

I have some “Billisms” , things I understand in the Word that I’ve never heard taught.  (If you’re interested, read the blog).  They hopefully will make you seek out the truth.

If you are seeking God, He can open your eyes and heart to something that will affect your life and help you to walk with Him daily.  All it takes is a desire for Him.  He will provide, protect and direct you to a place of comfort,  peace and joy unspeakable.

If you want to know Jesus check out the “Salvation way” page, if you want more Jesus in your life.  Get in the Word, until the Word is in you.

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, :

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

This verse has caused much consternation.  After all isn’t the Lord omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient. …Isn’t He everywhere,  can’t He do anything and dosn’t He know everything.

What do you mean,  while He may be found?  When He is near?

I believe the writer is speaking of the condition of our hearts.  There are times when we are open and receptive to the will and word of God and other times, not so much.

Like the Hebrews in the desert,  the promised land was there, all they had to do was enter and the Lord would give it to them.  When they refused, it was back to the desert.

When we don’t answer the knock at our hearts, we sometimes take one more trip around the mountain. …then maybe we open ourselves to the Lords love and grace.   It was there all the time, we needed to reach out and ask for it.  Be willing to give ourselves to Him,  so He can reside within.

I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.

This is the second seek ye verse in Isaiah:   The Lord is reminding us His word is true…seek Him and you will find Him.  Good and perfect gifts come from the Father.   The time is now, today if you will harken unto the voice of the Lord,  you can find peace, comfort,  forgiveness,  Mercy and the Grace of Salvation.

Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.

This is an important verse for Christians,  this is a “Billism”; something I have interpreted to mean:

We need to find the book, read the book,  none of its promises will fail.  The Lord watches  over His word to proform it and the Spirit is here to see that it is done.

Lord help us to love and obey so You might use us to lead others to You.  Amen

What is Righteousness?

What is Righteousness?   Righteousness is quite simply,  right standing with God.

Genesis 15:6
And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

Believed. ..counted it for righteousness:   What was it Abram believed?   It wasn’t simply a belief that the Lord exists,  he had been  worshiping, obeying and walking with the Lord for a number of years.

What made him righteous was the belief in the Lords promise of an heir.  He and Sarai were old beyond child bearing years,  yet he believed the impossible the promise of the Lord.

Today for us, it is belief in “Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:”  He has made us new men, which after God are created in righteousness and true holiness.

Our Righteousness,  holiness, sanctification, redemption, wisdom all come from the cover of the blood of Jesus which we receive when we believe.

We believe the promises of God to become Righteous but to exhibit Righteousness is more important.

The Lord would have us be ministers of righteousness;  (display the) peaceable fruit of righteousness,  suffer for righteousness’ sake, (be) instruments of righteousness,  walk in the way of righteousness, Awake to righteousness, and sin not; follow after righteousness, we should live unto righteousness:    seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness,  for the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost, and most of all be  preachers of righteousness.

These are all pieces of New Testament scriptures that tell us “what righteousness is”. 

To  become Righteous,  we must set our face like flint to seek, love and obey the will of the Lord.  May we become the vessels He can use.

Are we servents of righteousness?

Genesis 15:6
And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

This is the first of 289 times the word righteousness appears in the Bible.   

Abram had just asked the Lord, “Who will be my heir?”  He had only his trusted servent, no offspring.

The Lord told him:  “His seed would out number the stars.”

Abram was an old man his wife not far behind, well beyond child bearing years….he already knew the Lord, had been following Him for years…...he believed the impossible.  He would have heirs. …that is why it was counted to him for righteousness..

In the New Testament, Jesus said if we only believe. ….the fig tree or mountain would be cast into the sea. …do we believe?   Are we serving righteousness?

The book of Romans mentions righteousness 33 times, the most of any New Testament book. It is here we learn to be servents of righteousness.

Romans 6:16
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Romans 6:18
Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

Romans 6:19
I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

Romans 6:20
For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

Now that we know the Lord, our lives should be turned around. …we need to watch what we allow into our lives….TV, Internet, magazines. …music…

We need to stop fulfilling the lusts of the flesh, eyes and pride of life.  

2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

1 Samuel 15:22
 And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

The Lord is not a hard task master. ..he said:

Matthew 11:29-30
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

All he really requires of us is to “Love the Lord and love our neighbors”…if we can learn to live this new commandment, the Lord will add to His Church daily such as should be saved.

We need to believe beyond salvation,  He healed all that were afflicted. …we will do all He did and more…

We need to believe the impossible.

Lord help me to share Your love, help my unbelief.

How long will this people provoke me?

Numbers 14:12 , How long will this people provoke me?

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”,
George Santayana

I believe Christians today are much like the Hebrews of Moses time.  If we look closely at their society we  find a multitude surrounding the Tabernacle of God in their travels.

We have the Tabernacle and Sanctuary carried by the Levites,  the Priest’s before them.   The tribe of Judah leading the march.  (Praise should always precede our walk).  All other tribes following and surrounding.

The murmurings and complaints start at the outside edges of the camp and ripple towards the center. Until almost all are upset.

Moses has to continually pray for the people so the Lord would not destroy them….Moses gets frustrated and basically said to the Lord:  “I’m not their Mother, why did you give me these people….how am I going to feed them, please them?”  Forgetting all the Lord had done to supply their needs.

They are at the edge of the promised land….12 go ahead to spy out the land.  It is a land of milk and honey, with giants.  Only Caleb and Joshua give a good report.   They are the only ones that believe the Lord can and will give them victory and the promise.

You can read the story in Numbers 13,14….the Lord had them wandering in the desert for 38 more years because of their unbelief.  Caleb and Joshua were the only two who had been in Egypt, to enter the promise.

In today’s Christian experience I can’t help but wonder how many will not make it into the promised land because of unbelief.  The Hebrews were all Gods children,  but only two made the transition. 

Matthew 7:14
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

In today’s world those that murmur and complain need to become the Levites of today….They need to seek the face of God, know His will, walk in His ways. Believe His promises,  act on the talents he gave us. (See Mathew 25 scriptures and blog title).

Both Joshua and Caleb were given something special from the Lord, we need to pray that He would give the same to us.

Deuteronomy 34:9
And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the Lord commanded Moses.

Numbers 14:24
But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

Do you have the right spirit within. …a spirit of devotion,  obedience, love and thanksgiving?  Will you follow the Lord fully?  Will you find the narrow way?

Lord give us the Spirit of wisdom to believe and the grace to follow.

The stranger (part 2)

   God desires a pure, holy,  loving and obedient church.  That is why His warnings in Numbers were so dire.  (see: stranger that cometh nigh….)   

He was warning of wolves in sheeps clothing.  Unbelieving, believers. …”salvation is available but God doesn’t do that other stuff anymore.”

When Jesus said: “These signs shall follow those who believe,” there was no experation date.  The determining factor was belief.

We have become a body that doesn’t really expect God to meet our needs, heal the sick or comfort the brokenhearted. We have settled on a Gospel of love and peace;  a Gospel of Salvation and not much else, when the Gospel should have Power and Might.

Jesus stirred up the Religious,  He rocked the boat….He threw out the traditions of man and brought the Power of God.

Luke 4:18,19
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,  To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

John 14:12
“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.”

He gave us that annointing, we just need to take the talents he has giving us and increase them.  (see Mathew 25).    

How did the church lose its power?  When our itching ears overcame our desire for inward change.

The Lord charged the Levites and Priest’s to keep the Tabernacle separate, holy, consecrated, annointed for His work.  To protect it from those who would defile it.   

Today the church cannot enter the promise,  because of unbelief.

Psalm 37:4
“Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”

The desire of my heart is to see people “saved, sanctified,  holy ghost filled and water baptized,  Jesus on their minds.  To find a new life.”  (to quote an old tune)

The key is learning to “delight ourselves in the Lord.”

de·light\di-ˈlīt, dē-\
Full Definition
1 : a high degree of gratification : joy; also : extreme satisfaction
2 : something that gives great pleasure
3 archaic : the power of affording pleasure

We must learn how to both delight ourselves in the Lord and be a delight to the Lord.   “To obey is better than sacrifice”…….”This is my commandment, that you love one another.”

When your life is devoted to pleasing God and loving others….you will find peace, grace, comfort and joy in the midst of our trials.

Lord, help me to be pleasing in your sight.   May I learn to delight myself in You.

the stranger that cometh nigh…..

the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

The Word of the Lord,  repeated four times in the book of Numbers.   It seems a little harsh to me, until we realize what the Lord is protecting.

If we look at the Old Testament as a picture of our Christian walk we begin to understand what the Lord is showing us.

Genesis:  Our wonderings, we may stumble upon the Lord and some find a way to walk with the Lord but it takes exceptional desire and obedience. …Enoch,  Noah,  Abraham, Joseph.  All men who had a special relationship with the Lord.

Exodus:  Our deliverance from slavery and the bondage of sin.  Jesus made the way.  The building of our Spiritual lifes, the church of God.  Still takes a special person to lead, guide, direct on our journey.   The Spirit of God gives  the wisdom, knowledge and skill to build the Tabernacle of the Lord.   The place He lives.  (within us).

Leviticus:  The journey to holiness, obedience, blessing.   True believers are separated from the masses. We begin to be responsible for our own walks. The Levites start their traning for the service of the Lord.

Numbers:  The start of our walk to the promised land.  The Levites start their various ministries.   The way to the promised land is before them.  Some don’t make it because of an evil heart of unbelief they depart from the living God.   

Here is where the warning is given:  “the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.”

The first of these warning is to the Levites.   

Numbers 1:51
 And when the tabernacle setteth forward, the Levites shall take it down: and when the tabernacle is to be pitched, the Levites shall set it up: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

Only the Levites are empowered to build the Tabernacle the habitat of the Lord.  There are many children of Israel. …only the chosen are allowed to touch the Tabernacle.   Are you one of the multitudes of believers or one of the chosen?   

What is the depth of your beliefs.   Virgin birth, death, resurrection. …2nd coming?    How about Baptism, by water, by spirit?   Calling, Gifts, Ministries of the Spirit?  Tongues, Interpretation, prophecy,  healings, miracles?   Is your church growing daily? Where does your faith line end?  I know we want to believe it all…but do we?   Really?

2nd through 4th warnings are to the Priest’s.  

Numbers 3:10
But those that encamp before the tabernacle toward the east, even before the tabernacle of the congregation eastward, shall be Moses, and Aaron and his sons, keeping the charge of the sanctuary for the charge of the children of Israel; and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

Numbers 3:38
But those that encamp before the tabernacle toward the east, even before the tabernacle of the congregation eastward, shall be Moses, and Aaron and his sons, keeping the charge of the sanctuary for the charge of the children of Israel; and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

Numbers 18:7
Therefore thou and thy sons with thee shall keep your priest’s office for everything of the altar, and within the vail; and ye shall serve: I have given your priest’s office unto you as a service of gift: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.

The Lord tells us who is to lead His church.   Those in the east, the leaders, priests.   They are to wait on their ministry.  It is a service of gift.

The Lord today is telling the Levites and Priest’s of today.   (Those who truly seek, love and obey Him).  To keep His testimony,  His word is Sacred,  we are to guard and protect it, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.

We should be healing the sick, freeing the captives, comforting the brokenhearted,  proclaiming Jesus.  Help us Lord to understand and be obedient to Your will and ways.  May we truly Walk with Jesus. .

Joseph and the coming climate change

Genesis 41:38.   “Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?”

What the world is longing and looking for.  A man in whom the Spirit of God is.

This is an interesting choice of words, for to have faith, we must believe God is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently  seek Him.

The Spirit of God was with within Joseph,  God gave Joseph a Word of Knowledge and a Word of Wisdom. …the explanation of Pharaohs dream and what to do about it.  Pharaoh recognized the Spirit of God.   He marvelled and accepted it and the Egyptians were prepared for the coming climate change.

As we read about Joseph the Lord was there all the time.

Born from prayer:

Genesis 30:24.  she called his name Joseph; and said, The Lord shall add to me another son.

As a child, God gave him prophetic dreams and he was his Father’s favorite.   His eleven brothers hated him, sold him into slavery.   Where he prospered.

Genesis 39:2  the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

Genesis 39:5. And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the Lord was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.

As top slave, his Masters wife tried to entice him into sexual sin.  When he refused, she accused him of rape and he was sent to prison.

Genesis 39:21   But the Lord was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

While in prison,  God gave him interpretations of dreams which finally brought him before Pharaoh.  The Word tells us the Lord was with him but he recognized and prayed to God. (see the Trinity in the Old Testament)

Genesis 4 0:8. “Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your dreams.”

Genesis 41:16  “I cannot do it,” , “but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires.”

 Genesis 41:51  Joseph named his firstborn Manasseh and said,   “It is because God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father’s household.”

When his brothers came to find food because of the draught, Joseph’s prophetic dreams came true and he sent for his family.

Genesis 42:18  “Do this and you will live, for I fear God:”

Genesis 45:9  God has made me lord of all Egypt. Come down to me; don’t delay.

Joseph had the Spirit of God within him from birth.  He was open and obedient to God, walked with God, which caused the Lord to be with him and for him to prosper in all that he did.

If we would learn the simple truth;  to obey is better than sacrificeand do it.  I believe we would find ourselves as leaders causing all those around us to proper in the blessings of God.

Jesus please,  help me to walk with you, to be obedient to Your will.

It seems to me, a lot of churches have put  expiration dates on parts of the Bible.

Miracles, signs and wonders, revelations from God; all expired with the last of the Apostles.  (Until the new improved message,  arrived).

Jonah and the big fish died the same time as the tooth fairy. David and Goliath,  Noah and the flood, Samson,  Gideon, all just fables, stories for children. 

Morales, ethics, honesty, self-control,  self-respect,  self-reliance all expired,  dead, gone, buried.  Will they ever return?

Folks, when a large segment of the population, teaches their children it is OK  to abort, and not raise their little sister or brother; or that Heather has two mommies; or let’s go visit daddy in prison;   do not be surprised when they set fire to the cat.

What we have allowed to happen to our country and churches, will continue.

Our churches, like our politicians. …are empty suits.  All hot air and promises.  
Do we really see and talk about the great things God is doing?   Not often,  because He is not doing much,  with this stiff-necked generation.

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.

.Lord, I pray our hearts would turn your way.
