Hello, John and Doves,Some of y'all have been waiting a very long time for the LORD's coming for His Bride. In fact, you've been living in Spirit and in Truth for as long as you can remember [John 4:24]. This message is for you and for everyone who dedicates themselves to being filled with the Ruach HaKodesh [Holy Spirit] continuously, as it is written, "...[B]e being filled with the Holy Spirit." Ephesians 5:18--G. L. Johnson expanded translationAll along the way from point A to point B and beyond, "Be not weary in well doing; for in due season you will reap a bountiful harvest, if you do not faint." Galatians 6:9In fact,"The Lord isn't really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent." 2 Peter 3:9 NLTWe can be sure that,"The faithful love of the LORD never ends!His mercies never cease."Great is His faithfulness;his mercies begin afresh each morning." Lamentations 3:22-23Truly, "Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow." James 1:17Based on this same theme of divine love, we know that Peter and James heard and remembered in their hearts the scripture below:
"I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live." Ezekiel 33:11
How do we know that God saves everyone He chooses?
"Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear." Isaiah 59:1
"Ears to hear and eyes to see--both are gifts from the LORD." Proverbs NLTThese verses prove true, day in and day out.Indeed, "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." Hebrews 13:8Thus, it is written,
“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news.”
Romans 10:15, Isaiah 52:7
[Btw, this was in Mary's heart as she washed the feet of Jesus.]
"Thy Word is lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." Psalm 119:105
33 “But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of
on that day,” says the LORD. “I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Israel
34 “And they will not need to teach their neighbors, nor will they need to teach their relatives, saying, ‘You should know the LORD.’ For everyone, from the least to the greatest, will know me already,” says the LORD. “And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.” Jeremiah 31:33-34
12 He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west. [You can go west around the world an infinite distance, and you can go east around the world an infinite distance (taken from the G. L. Johnson expanded translation/sermon notes)].
13 The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate toward those who fear him.
7 “Oh what joy for those
whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sins are put out of sight.
8 “Yes, what joy for those
whose record the LORD has cleared of sin.”
Romans 4:7, Psalm 32:1-2It is for the joy of the LORD that we share the Gospel with sinners, see many saved, and welcome our new brothers and sisters into the Kingdom of our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ!Baruch HaShem Yeshua,Mike C.
