Mat 25:12 WEB But he answered, ‘Most certainly I tell you, I don’t know you.’
These are frightening words: “I don’t know you! ” That’s why we need a personal relationship with Jesus. Coming to Him daily in praise and worship and Thanksgiving. This is the oil that will keep our lamps burning. These things help our light to shine. You can only get the fullness of love, joy and peace from the one who overflows with it. Col 2:10 KJV And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
Dear Jesus! In you is the fullness of life. In you we live and breathe . In you is the fullness of life, peace and joy. We are one in you. GLORY BE TO GOD ! Amen. SHALOM2U
Mat 1:21 KJV And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
JESUS SAVES: this is the good news ” The GOSPEL “. The too good to be true good news. Man finds it hard to believe and unfortunately too many churches are preaching the law instead of the GOSPEL- Good News. Too many Christians are trying to save themselves. They want to keep the law. They want to obey the law; but without Jesus doing it, it can’t be done. It will only produce ” self righteousness “. When we receive Jesus into our hearts, He comes in to save us. By faith not works, we believe and declare who we are ” in Christ Jesus “. We declare by faith that we are righteous in Christ Jesus. He then produces the gift of righteousness in our lives. This is how Jesus saves. When He does the work, we have peace-Shalom and the fullness of joy.
Dear Jesus. Thank you for doing what I could not do. I am righteous in you because you came into my life and saved me. I thank you for the peace that passes understanding and unspeakable joy. Amen
Mat 4:10 KJV Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Here Jesus is quoting : Deu.6:13 KJV Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name. The old testament says ” fear ” but Jesus says “worship “.
The Father gave us His son Jesus so that we would love Him and not fear Him : For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. The bible goes on and says that perfect love cast out all fear . It also says that we love Him because He first loved us.
Psa 34:7 KJV The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. Here again we see the word ” fear ” but God wants us to love and worship Him. People fear dictators; they don’t love them. God wants us to love Him.
Heavenly Father: we thank you for giving us your Son. There is no greater love than that. Forgive me for not fully appreciating your priceless give. I give you all glory and honor for there is no greater love than yours: Glory to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen. Shalom2u
EVERYONE KNOWS ” THE OUR FATHER ” PRAYER. THY WILL BE DONE. THY KINGDOM COME ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. UNFORTUNATELY, THE CHURCH HAS MADE A RELIGION OUT OF IT. INSTEAD OF THY WILL BE DONE; IT’S ” IF IT BE THY WILL ” . JESUS DIDN’T GO AROUND AND KEPT ASKING THE FATHER, IF IT BE THY WILL. NO, JESUS KNEW THE WILL OF THE FATHER AND HE SHOWED US HIS WILL THROUGHOUT HIS MINISTRY. GOD’S WILL IS ALWAYS GOOD. THE DEVIL’S WILL IS ALWAYS BAD. Joh 10:10 KJV The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. JESUS WAS ABLE TO DO THE WILL OF THE FATHER BECAUSE HE PUT THE FATHER FIRST PLACE IN HIS HEART. THIS IS NOT EASY TO DO. WE HAVE MANY DISTRACTIONS IN LIFE THAT KEEP US FROM PUTTING GOD FIRST IN OUR LIVES. WE BELIEVE IN GOD ; BUT WE PUT SO MANY OTHER THINGS FIRST IN OUR LIVES. MAYBE THAT’S OUR REAL ” CROSS ” IN LIFE. Mat 6:33 KJV But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. A GOOD WAY TO DO THIS IS BY ” MEDITATING ” ON GOD’S WORD AND TALK TO HIM ABOUT IT. THIS GIVES HIM HONOR AND IN RETURN YOU WILL BE BLESSED.
DEAR JESUS: THANK YOU FOR SHOWING US THE FATHER AND HOW HE WANTS TO BLESS US, PROTECT US, PROVIDE FOR US. IN GOD IS OUR LOVE, JOY AND SHALOM/ PEACE. AMEN !
Mat 6:33 KJV But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
IT’S NOT EASY FINDING AND LIVING IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD. FIRST WE HAVE TO BE ” BORN AGAIN ” TO ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD. THAT’S OUR FIRST ACT WHICH REQUIRES FAITH AND BELIEF IN GOD. A LOT ENTER BUT FAIL TO GROW BECAUSE EVERYTHING IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD REQUIRES FAITH. AS PAUL TOLD THE GALATIANS : Gal 3:3 NET Are you so foolish? Although you began with the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by human effort? EVERYTHING IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD STARTS IN THE SUPERNATURAL AND THEN IT BECOMES REAL IN THE NATURAL. UNFORTUNATELY, WE ARE TAUGHT TO BE RIGHTEOUS IN THE NATURAL. WE TRY BY OUR OWN HUMAN NATURE TO LIVE RIGHTEOUSLY. WE CAN DO A PRETTY GOOD JOB BUT NEVER MEET GOD’S STANDARDS. Phi 3:9 KJV And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: THAT IS WHY JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS. 2Co 5:21 KJV For he ( GOD ) hath made him ( JESUS ) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. RIGHTEOUSNESS IS GOD’S GIFT TO US , HIS GRACE THAT WE RECEIVE BY FAITH IN JESUS ( NOT OURSELVES : THAT’S SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS ). Rom 5:17 KJV For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.). DID YOU CATCH THAT ? ” REIGN IN LIFE ” ! WE’RE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD : KINGS AND PRIESTS. WE COMMAND EVIL SPIRITS TO GO AND DECLARE GOD’S BLESSINGS ON ONE ANOTHER. IT’S ALL BY FAITH; DECLARING JESUS’S POWER AND AUTHORITY OVER THE ENEMY- SATAN’S KINGDOM. DECLARING JESUS’S GRACE, LOVE AND MERCY ON ALL, ESPECIALLY THE LOST.
DEAR JESUS ! YOU ARE THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS. YOU ARE THE GREAT HIGH PRIEST OF OUR PROFESSION. WE DECLARE YOUR KINGDOM OVER THE EARTH. WE WILL NOT ALLOW SATAN’S KINGDOM TO REIGN ANY MORE. YOUR NAME IS ABOVE EVERY NAME SO THE ENEMY IS DEFEATED. WE DECLARE ” LIGHT BE ” IN JESUS NAME ! WE DECLARE SHALOM/PEACE IN JESUS NAME. TO GOD BE THE GLORY, AMEN !
Mat 9:2 KJV And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.
NOTE : ” seeing their faith ” : it wasn’t the man’s faith but their faith. Isn’t it wonderful that we can intercede for others.
” your sins are forgiven “. They brought the man to Jesus ( Jehovah SAVES) and the man’s sins are forgiven. We’re not sure if he came to be forgiven, but Jesus forgave his sins anyway. God does things exceedingly, abundantly above what we can think or ask. The word ” save ” is ” sozo ” in Greek. It means save body, soul, and spirit: the whole man.
Dear Jesus: Thank you for giving your whole life as a sacrifice for me. By your sacrifice, i am ” saved ” ; body, soul and spirit. Thank you for your Shalom/ Peace. Amen
Mat 11:11 KJV Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
“BORN OF WOMEN ” , NOT ” BORN AGAIN “. WHEN WE ARE ” BORN AGAIN “, WE ARE IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD. WE ARE ” IN CHRIST JESUS ” , A NEW CREATION, KINGS AND PRIEST, PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE, MORE THAN A CONQUEROR. ALL OF THIS IS ” GOOD NEWS “. TO GOOD TO BELIEVE. GOOD NEWS; EXCEPT IT’S GOD’S GOOD NEWS. YOU ARE GREATER THAN JOHN THE BAPTIST BECAUSE WHEN YOU ARE ” BORN AGAIN ” . YOU ARE NOW ” IN CHRIST JESUS “. THIS IS WHERE YOUR FAITH COMES IN. YOU HAVE TO KNOW, BELIEVE, AND DECLARE BEFORE THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN BRING IT TO PASS. DON’T RELY ON YOUR FLESH FOR WHAT YOU SEE . SEE WITH YOUR SPIRITUAL EYES ; SEE THAT YOU ARE A NEW CREATION IN CHRIST JESUS.
DEAR JESUS! YOU ARE AMAZING. YOU DO EXCEEDINGLY , ABUNDANTLY, ABOVE ALL THAT WE CAN THINK AND ASK. YOU MAKE US MORE THAN CONQUERS BY YOUR LIVING IN US. NOW WE CAN DEFEAT THE ENEMY OF OUR SOUL AND LIVE IN YOUR LOVE, GRACE, AND SHALOM/PEACE. TO GOD BE THE GLORY. AMEN ! SHALOM2U
Mat 12:37 KJV For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
JESUS JUST GOT DONE TALKING ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF THE WORDS ONE SPEAKS. HE ALSO TALKED ABOUT THE WORDS THAT YOU RECEIVE THAT GOES DOWN INTO YOUR HEART AND OUT OF YOUR MOUTH. WHEN WE LET WHAT THE WORLD SAYS IS TRUE INSTEAD OF WHAT GOD’S WORDS SAYS IS TRUE.; WE WILL SPEAK WORDS OF FEAR, DOUBT , AND UNBELIEF. IT’S NO WONDER WE DON’T RECEIVE WHAT WE PRAY FOR , FROM GOD. GOD WANTS TO BLESS US. HIS WORD IS FULL OF BLESSING THAT IS OURS THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS. WHEN WE RECEIVE JESUS AS OUR SAVIOR, THESE BLESSINGS ARE OUR INHERITANCE.
DEAR JESUS! THANK YOU FOR SUFFERING FOR ME. BY YOUR SACRIFICE, YOU REDEEMED ME FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW ( deut. 28 ). YOU FULFILLED ALL THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE LAW. NOW THAT I AM IN YOU AND YOU ARE IN ME , I AM ” REDEEMED “. FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW. NOW I HAVE ALL THE BLESSINGS OF GOD. I WILL ONLY CONFESS THESE BLESSINGS. I AM REDEEMED: GLORY BE TO GOD. AMEN. SHALOM2U
Mat 27:46 NHEB Then at about three in the afternoon Jesus called out with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” That is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
When we contemplate the crucifixion of Jesus; we probably wonder what was the worst part? I used to think that it was the wiping. There was hardly any flesh left on His back. Every part of the crucifixion was brutal. I now come to believe that this part was the hardest for Jesus to endure: being forsaken. Jesus had always been with the Father. They were never separated. We can only imagine ( but someday will experience) this intimacy. Everything that Jesus did was through their relationship together. As a human being, He was able to live as a Divine being. Now Jesus takes our sins and loses this oneness with the Father.
Dear Jesus! Forgive us for the many times that we took your sacrifice for granted. We come to you, Lord Jesus. Our desire is to grow in you. To be one with you as you are with the Father. To be able to be partakers of the divine nature and therefore live like you. Your desire is that we would also go about proclaiming the Kingdom of God. Continue working in us so that your Kingdom come and your will be done. To God be the glory Amen! Www.Shalom2u.org
