Originally I was pondering on the reason people don't receive the gracious gift of sal- vation. God loves all & is merciful, not a tyrant who is watching every mistake so he can punish you. But God, brought me back to the same verse I used last week. 2 Peter 1:3 It says the power of God has given us all that pertains to life & godliness. 2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the God of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. Sinners minds are blinded by their refusal of accepting Jesus as Savior. That is why we need to pray that God open the eyes of the blinded sinner that they see the truth & be saved. Then the concordance led me to 2 Peter 1:9 But he that lacketh these things is blind & cannot see afar off, & hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. I had to read above this verse to find out what thing caused this spiritual blindness. V. 4 God has given us great & precious promises that we might be partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption of this world through lust. V. 5-7 And besides this, give all dilligence, add to your faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patients, godliness, brotherly kindness, & charity. 8 For if these things be in you, & abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. A lot of christians have been blinded to the truth because of their own lust. James 1:15 says when lust is conceived it bringeth forth sin. We have all that we need when we first get saved. I pray that I will not be deceived often. it can happen, but if we keep God's word in our heart, pray & trust him we will be ok.

The old hymn says. "stand up, stand up ye soldiers of the cross. lift high her royal banner, it must not suffer loss. From vict'ry on to vict'ry, His army shall He lead; 'Til ev'ry foe is vanquished and Christ is Lord indeed." We, as Christians, should unite as the army of the Lord, putting away petty differences and standing firm on the basic foundation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The church has been divided by the enemy which we all must stand against. We have our part to do.Yes we must believe in Christ Jesus and the work he did at Calvary's Cross. that is not a license to be at ease in Zion, but be led by the Holy Spirit to witness, (one of the best witnesses is to show God's love, compassion). This is the only witness some folks will receive. A wounded man is hard to win.  There are so many that have been hurt by unconcerned christians. Galatians 5:1 Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ has made you free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. v.7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you from obeying the truth. Selfish pride blinds the people of God from seeing the needs of others. How many people leave in worse shape than when they came. Since John died there has been many times I needed someone to be there, just to talk to. We need to be sensitive to others needs. It can be the difference of life or death. There has been so much condemnation in the house of God, when people need compassion; not condoning sin, but considering that you could be in the same situation. We must unite and do our part. If people know you love them, they are more likely to receive correction. United we stand, divided we fall. Have patience, God was patient with you.

Galatians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be ye strong in the Lord, & in the power of his might. If we stand we have to be in Christ Jesus & in his power & might. How? We must trust in what Jesus did for us at the cross of Calvary. Face it, we are unable to do what is needed to be victorious We like to think that we can take care of things for ourselves. That's pride. That is the very reason that so many are having the problems & they just seem to be getting worse. I'm not coming doctors, they have their place. God chooses to use them at times. I am saying that we need to cast our cares on Jesus. How dare anyone think that they can do better that Jesus. That is sac-religious. Verse 12 For we wrestle not against flesh & blood, but against principalities, against powers. against rulers of darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Where-fore, take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to with stand the evil day & having done all to stand. 14 Stand therefore,.... I'm not going into the varmour of God , now, most know it. Matthew 11:28 Come unto me all ye that labour & are heavy laden, & I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, & learn of me, for I am meek & lowly in heart: & ye shall find rest for your soul. 30 For my yoke is easy & my burden is light. A lot of God's people are labouring & have no peace, because they are striving to do God's work, instead of trusting God & being obedient to what God has revealed to them to do. Good works are good, but being obedient is rewarded. For so many years they taught you that you had to earn God's provision. Just like salvation, they are a gift from God. We do have to believe & be in Christ Jesus. Everything was paid for at Calv'ry

Does it seem sometimes that you barely have power to blow your your nose? That is just what the enemy wants you to think. He gets your focus off the one in us who really has the power to defeat him every time. We are not the source of power. The Holy Spirit (Ghost) is the source of power. When we are saved we receive the power from the Holy Spirit to be victorious in our walk with the Lord Jesus. When we receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, we receive power for service. This includes power for witnessing. Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power & ye shall be witnesses..., Romans 5:11 But if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will quicken your mortal bodies through his Spirit which dwells in you. Jesus said that he would go away, & give us another comforter. Jesus was our example. He began his ministry after that he was filled with the Holy Spirit. Zechariah 4:6 Then He answered & said unto me, this is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit saith the Lord. When we try to make things happen, or expect God to move when we snap our fingers, so to speak, it just isn't going to work. God is sovereign & he says yea or nay. We need to keep ourselves in tune with God's word, pray in the Spirit & pray through, in faith, & wait on his will. We must realize that it is not in our own works, but by the Spirit. God isn't a genie. He sees the whole picture & works in our behalf, for our good, our best interest. We need to be ready at all times to do the works of the Lord, instant in season & out. The days of miracles is not over. He- brews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, & today, & forever.

So many times we have a tendency to think we've got it rough. If someone says something about us, we are being persecuted. Now you take our president, who by the way is a gift from God, he is accused of every thing evil you can think of. If they do wrong, they accuse him of it. We really need to pray for him. No, he's not perfect, but, he is the best we've had in the last 30 years. He really cares. I didn't intend to say this, but It fits in with what I am speaking about. I was thinking about Joseph in Genesis 37, 38-48. First of all, he was hated by his brethren. They even thought to kill him, but Reuben tried to spare him. saying there is a pit without water, throw him in it. They did.Reuben intended to save him later. they were then going to kill him. Judah said it would be better to sell him. The midianites beat them to it. He is about 17. He was sold as a slave in potiphar. Even as a slave, God blessed him. He had a destiny to save Israel, his father & linage from famine. Potiphar's wife tried to seduce him & because he was pure in heart retaliated & accused him of doing what she had tried to do. So Joseph ended up in prison. I'm safe in saying that it was at least 11 years. He was blessed in the prison, in a place of authority. So far he was hated, thrown in a pit to die, sold into slavery, falsely accused, thrown into prison for something he didn't do, he lost every- thing.Stripped of honor, yet it was all on the road to his destiny. then God opened the door & he was put in charge of all Egypt next to Pharaoh. God was in charge. I've only hit the highlights. Looking at Joseph's life, He was a foreshadow of Jesus. No sin was found in either. Things aren't really that bad. Be strong, Jesus will never forsake you!
