* A NEW START FOR 2017*

sunrise -early risers

IT’S A NEW DAY – AND A NEW YEAR – AND A NEW START!

“This is what the God of Heaven says…he sent me to the nations who spoiled (did damage) to you (Israel),…he told me to tell them; ‘”he that touches (does damage) to you (Israel) touches the apple of my eye.” {Zech. 2:8} *Paraphrased*

“My eye” is a colloquial term sometime used to express disbelief in what someone told for the truth. It is derived, (as so many often used terms are today), – from the bible. God is clearly telling those who oppose Israel that they are ‘sticking their finger in His (God’s) eye.’

We have heard the expression “poking the bear.” Would you not think it would be worse to ‘poke your finger in God’s eye,’ especially if you did it deliberately in an attitude of rebellion. That is what former president Obama did in his recent ‘non-vote’ to protect Israel’s boundaries, –  and colluded with other nations, and even orchestrated this action against Israel. NOT SMART!

He was elected by the American people. Therefore, being our leader, making us responsible. The American people (christians) obviously claimed 11 Chronicles 7:14 during this last presidential campaign, and humbled ourselves before God, repenting for the sins committed in this nation, and for our departure from His principles. I could never be convinced that Donald Trump was elected to this office for any other reason offered, –  that could overpower that reason. 

Because of that, I can believe that the act of ‘poking God in the eye’ by the former president, can give us a reprieve from the consequences that might follow from that recent action against Israel. Our new president, Donald Trump does not have that view or attitude toward Israel. I believe God will grant us mercy because of our election of a man who has a clear love and respect for God and of Israel. Many factors are involved of course,- but this is a major one.

I am an eternal optimist. I am only moved from a position of faith, – not by unbelief and doubt or fear. But I can never disallow that the negative does exist. If I deliberately do wrong, I will experience the corresponding consequences. Only a certain loser will climb out on a limb and saw it off back close to the trunk. Keep your ‘eye clear’ –  and don’t “poke God in the eye.”

I offer my most grateful thanks for the American people who rose up and prayed, and then voted to correct the devastating direction we were headed in. I look forward with anticipation, as many of you are now doing,  to the corrections and changes we will see through the election of this new head of states, our new and God fearing President, Donald Trump. But – he won’t succeed without the arms of God around him!

God Almighty “counts our faith as righteousness” (read the book of Romans)

    * NOBODY’S ARMS ARE LONG ENOUGH TO BOX WITH GOD  *          

 { I READ THE BIBLE }

What is it about THAT BABY?

39          What is it about THAT BABY?

For over two thousands years the world has celebrated the birth of one single little boy. We know the stories of the shepherds and the wise men and the angels singing in the heavens above the shepherds fields, – and that manger in a cattle stable, in the little town of Bethlehem, in the nation of Israel.

No man can ever describe it all.

But what fascinates me among other stories that are well known; –  is that little boys origin. If He was born of a virgin, then he had no human blood. We know the blood of a new born child is passed on from the male to the female at the time of conception. Which explains why women take on the males last name in the marriage ceremony. If the bloodline is through the male, –  then Jesus didn’t have human blood.

Mary was said to be about 14 or 15 years of age when she conceived. According to the scriptures, an angel hovered over her and the seed was planted by a spoken word from the angel. Where did that baby’s blood come from?

The blood of that little boy Jesus, was a specially created blood at the time of His conception. The IMMACULATE conception! It was never contaminated with sin. This is why no other person could remit sin. He referred to himself as “the door.” He was God, who put himself in a human body, who could be offered as a sacrifice to redeem man from eternal separation from Himself,- because of unforgiven sin.

That explains why the blood of Jesus was shed as a holy sacrifice for the sins of the world. No other blood was an acceptable sacrifice  because all human blood was contaminated with sin. Nobody else has ever been born of a virgin, – and nobody else could walk on top of a stormy lake either.

The spirit that was  in Jesus was not a natural human spirit. It was a Holy Spirit. “The Holy Spirit.” He was (is) the “Son Of God.” Or “God in the flesh.” He was all three – in one body. It is for good reason called,- the “mystery of the Godhead.”

Jesus could therefore correctly declare; “If you have seen me, you have seen the Father.” Before He left the earth, He told his disciples, “It is necessary for you that I go away. If I don’t go away the comforter cannot come.

The comforter was the Spirit that was in Him. He returned fifty days after He departed (on the day of pentecost), and entered the believers that were in that upper room. They spread the word and that wind of the Holy Ghost (Spirit) now dwells with us, and also in us, – today!  The Holy Spirit of that baby now dwells in beleivers who walk by faith and not by sight. He came back in His Spirit, – He will come back in spirit and flesh, – but not in flesh and blood. He gave his blood away, – to redeem us!

What else could explain or perpetuate this annual celebration called Christmas,- for over 2000 years?  The story has survived and will never die,-  because it is TRUTH!

” Oh tell me the story of Jesus, write on my heart every word. Tell me that story most precious, the sweetest that I’ve ever heard…”

I love to say it over and over again;

   MERRY CHRISTMAS!!  * Selah!
