Old Testament – Other

Understanding and appreciating what Jesus has done for us and developing a personal relationship with Him.

Gen 15:11 NHEB And the birds of prey came down on the carcasses, but Abram drove them away.
This verse refers to when Abraham was offering the animal sacrifice for the covenant with God.   The devil came and tried to take the sacrifice away.   Abraham had to protect that sacrifice, until God received it.   This sacrifice God had already provided for Abraham. God created the animals.   Abraham just had to get them to sacrifice.
This is what we have to do when we want to receive from God.   God has many promises that He wants us to receive.   God has already provided the sacrifice for us.   All we have to do is know, believe and declare the sacrifice.   We do this by praise ,worship and Thanksgiving to Jesus for what He has done.   We keep doing this until the promise is manifested.   In the meantime, the devil is attacking our faith with fear, doubt, and unbelief .   We must be like Abraham and keep the thief from destroying our offering to God.
Dear Jesus!   It’s all about you. What you did for us.   The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.   You came to save us and give us fulness of life.   We shall continue to praise You : our Saviour, healer, deliverer, strength and righteousness.   To God be the glory Amen!

Gen 50:20 WEB As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to save many people alive, as is happening today.

 Throughout our journey here on earth, we face many trials. Many evil things can come against us and even happen to us. First we need to remember that the thief comes to kill, steal, and destroy. Jesus came that we may have life. In the story of Joseph, he faced many trials. He was able to go through those trials by his personal relationship with God. He knew that God is a deliverer. A Redeemer that restores what the devil has stolen from him.

Dear Jesus! We declare that you are our Deliverer, our Redeemer. Whatever has been stolen from us, we declare that the devil gives it back. Not only give it back but restore it sevenfold. We declare it done in Jesus’ name. To God be the glory Amen! www.Shalom2u.org

Deu 31:6 KJV Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. THESE WORDS WERE GIVING TO THE CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM BEFORE THEY WERE TO GO INTO THE ” PROMISE LAND “. THEY WERE TOLD THAT THERE WOULD BE MANY OBSTACLES BUT DO NOT FEAR, GOD WOULD GO BEFORE THEM AND BE WITH THEM. TO RECEIVE ANY OF GOD’S GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISES, THERE WILL BE CHALLENGES. FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH AND PLEASE GOD.

DEAR JESUS ! YOUR ARE OUR SAVIOR ! YOU CAME TO GIVE US LIFE, ABOUNDED LIFE. WE WILL NOT FEAR OR BE DISCOURAGED, KNOWING THAT YOU ARE WITH US AND GO BEFORE US. THANKS FOR YOUR LOVE, JOY AND PEACE. AMEN ! SHALOM2U

2Ch 20:6 NET He prayed: “O LORD God of our ancestors, you are the God who lives in heaven and rules over all the kingdoms of the nations. You possess strength and power; no one can stand against you.

Dear Jesus!  We believe that you have defeated the enemy. You have defeated satan’s kingdom.   The heavens and the earth belong to you. There is a lot of darkness in the world; but you have given us power and authority over the enemy.    We shall continue to declare ” light be ” and ” Peace/ Shalom ” in the name of Jesus until your glory appears.
To God be the glory, amen!              www.Shalom2u.org  

Isa 55:1 KJV Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

God is talking about spiritual things; things. Things that can not be bought with money : spiritual things.    Things that satisfies your soul. (V2)Your soul will effect your body.    If your soul is down: full of fear, worry, anxiety, depressed, your body will react to it in a negative way. When we come to God ( v3 ), He will satisfy our soul.
EVERYTHING FROM GOD IS FREE !     HE FREELY GIVES US HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS .    WE FREELY RECEIVE BY FAITH, BUT JESUS PAID A HEAVY PRICE.     THE DEVIL STOLE  WHAT GOD FREELY GAVE TO MANKIND.    JESUS IS NOT JUST OUR SAVIOR BUT OUR REDEEMER AS WELL.      WE ARE REDEEMED BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS.    WHEN WE BELIEVE THAT JESUS PAID IT ALL ; WE ARE THEN EMPOWERED TO BUY THAT WHICH WAS TAKEN AWAY.    BY FAITH  WE RECEIVE THE GRACE THAT JESUS PAID FOR BY HIS  SACRIFICE.

DEAR JESUS ! THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT SACRIFICE. BY YOUR BLOOD.   YOU SAVE US. YOU REDEEMED US AND GAVE US ETERNAL LIFE.    THERE IS NO GREATER LOVE THAN YOUR LOVE.      ALL GLORY, HONOR AND PRAISE YOU. AMEN.          SHALOM2U   


Isa 55:9 KJV For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
WE COULD NEVER KNOW AND UNDERSTAND YOUR WAYS WITHOUT YOU REVEALING THEM TO US.       WE THANK YOU FATHER FOR OPENING OUR SPIRITUAL EYES, OUR SPIRITUAL EARS, AND OPENING OUR HEART TO BELIEVE HOW GREAT YOU ARE.     SPENDING TIME WITH YOU GIVES US THE CONFIDENCE THAT WE NEED TO FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH. DEAR JESUS!     THANK YOU FOR REVEALING THE FATHER’S LOVE FOR US.    YOU AND OUR FATHER GAVE YOUR VERY BEST TO REDEEM US.      WE DECLARE THAT WE ARE REDEEMED FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW ( Gal 3:13 KJV Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:).    ONLY GOODNESS AND MERCY SHALL FOLLOW US ALL OUR DAYS.   Psa 23:6 KJV Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.       GLORY BE TO GOD AMEN! SHALOM2U

Jer 17:7 NHEB Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose confidence is in the LORD.

So here we see that by trusting in Jesus, the LORD; we will be blessed.
It’s not easy to trust when your world is falling apart.     We are condition to rely on what we see, hear, and understand with our minds.    The church is falling us. We need to be focused on JESUS + GRACE + FAITH = PEACE/ SHALOM2U.
  When we are blessed( AND THAT IS GOD’S WILL FOR US AND WHY JESUS DIED FOR US) , we are at peace, full of joy, full of life.   It’s all a spiritual battle that can only be won by trusting in the Lord.   This takes fellowshiping we Him.    Focusing on what He did to bless you. Then you will know, believe, and declare and the Holy Spirit will quicken ( give life to your words) and you will be blessed.

       Dear Jesus !   You can not lie. This is one of those great and precious promises in you, that are yea and amen to the glory of God. We put our trust in you alone.    Thank you for blessing us today and forever more.    To God be the glory Amen!             www.Shalom2u.org

Jer 33:8 NHEB I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, by which they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, by which they have sinned against me, and by which they have transgressed against me.

” Jesus will cleanse “.   He will do it.   We say that we believe in Jesus but we keep acting like HE didn’t do it.   This result in self effort instead of faith.   We keep on trying to do what Jesus says He has done.   We need to believe that He has done it before we can see it done.   We come to Jesus to save us and He does.   The problem is that its a growing process.   The more we know, believe, and declare who we are in Him; the more we are changed from the inside out to conform into the image of Christ.
We keep on confessing our sins, trying to defeat sin in our lives but its not the way Jesus does it.   This way only leads to self righteousness. The more we declare HIS righteousness in us; the more we receive His grace to live righteously.
        Dear Jesus!   Thank you for doing what we couldn’t do.   We can not keep the Law; but we can do all things through you living through us. (  Gal 2:20 NHEB I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me.  That life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me. )  Your grace does it all.     Saved by grace not works;  to God be the glory Amen!       Shalom2u
