FAMILY CONNECTIONS: “WORTH CONSIDERING” 7/29/20 From Ken<><
Today’s Scripture (Across my desk this morning from Texas.)
“…Don’t be afraid,” David said to him, “for I will surely show you kindness for the sake of your father Jonathan. I will restore to you all the land that belonged to your grandfather Saul, and you will always eat at my table…” (2 Samuel 9:7, NIV)
The King is Looking for You
Mephibosheth was the grandson of King Saul. His father was Jonathan, David’s best friend. But when Saul and Jonathan were killed in battle, and with the enemy coming to wipe out Saul’s family, young Mephibosheth was crippled in an accident. He ended up living in exile for many years in a poor, run-down city named Lo Debar, barely surviving, with no family and no way out. But one day King David remembered his friend Jonathan and discovered that Mephibosheth was alive. He sent soldiers to look for Mephibosheth, then brought him to the palace to live as royalty and restored his family’s land.
Perhaps you feel stuck in your own Lo Debar. The good news is, the King is looking for you. He wants to restore all that belongs to you as His child—the freedom, the joy, the peace, the victory, the abundance. He wants to pay you back for the unfair things that have happened. There is a seat for you at the King’s table.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for loving me and looking for me because You want me to have all that belongs to me as Your child. Thank You that You found me and brought me to live with You in Your palace forever. I will gladly take my place at Your table. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
This issue with the above posting is in you knowing who’s kid of what family you belong to. In John 8 Jesus told the religious leaders of HIS day that their father was lucifer as they did the works of their father lucifer. Obviously as long as we are alive the Heavenly Father’s welcomes us into HIS family. “Who so ever will, may come and drink of the waters of life freely, Rev.22.” So with our freewill we are able to stay with Adam as our father or though Christ Jesus elect to be adopted back into being a son of God as originally intended.. But those who do so will also start on the pilgrimage journey of becoming like Jesus. It is not possible to stay in the comfort zone of Adam’s lost world and still make the transition into the family of God. John 12:24-26.
The following is taken from a tract that I have printed and give out when I go to town on errands. “Let There Be Light.”
And God said, let there be light and there was light: (1). Arise, shine: for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee (2). Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead and Christ shall give thee light (3). This is the message which we have heard and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all (4). He that doeth the truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God (5). If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin (6). This is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil (7). For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved (8). But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light (9). Thy Light shall break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward (10). Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. (11). The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light (12). The city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the Light thereof (13). And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever (14).
1. Gen. 1:3, 2. Isa. 60:1, 3. Eph. 5:14, 4. 1 Jn. 1:5, 5. Jn. 3:21 6. 1 Jn. 1:17, 7. Jn. 3:19, 8. Jn. 3:20, 9. 1 Pet. 2:9, 10. Isa. 85:8 11. Matt. 5:14, 12. Rom. 13:12, 13. Rev. 21:33, 14. Rev. 22:5, Also Read, Eph.4:11-16 for the overview.
You are an eternal soul, according to the Holy Bible. And in this life only, you have an opportunity to choose God’s Family of Light for eternity. May you choose wisely. John 3, Romans 10:9-10 If you want to be or are a child of God, you will like the light shared above and want a lot more. If you are still a child of Adam, you will want to rush away and try to forget it all.
Yours in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha.org
