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.

Amen

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. 

Why?

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.

do any understand, and seek God? – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Do any understand?

As a born again, Bible believing child of God, my heart is heavy.  They do not understand.

We have been given a great commission,  go into the world and introduce Jesus to  the lost.  Most of the time, I haven’t a clue how to do this effectively.

There is no help for him in God. – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

That is where I was.  A drunkerd,  pot head, a man  actively seeking comfort from married women.  A mouth unfit for civil society.   (All things that seem to be accepted today).

When I was young and stupid, I was young and stupid.

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.
