ALOHA FAMILY & FRIENDS,   Beloved of our Great Creator God,   John 3:16-18,   12:24-26,   17:21-26

     10/25/19    (Across my desk this morning.)

Today’s Scripture
“For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” (2 Cor. 1:20, NKJV)
Yes and Amen

Have you thought about the fact that God has already said “yes” to His promises in your life? You don’t have to beg God to be good to you. You don’t have to plead with Him to help you. God wants to help you. He wants to pour out His abundant blessing on your life. The Scripture says His promises are “yes and amen.” “Amen” means “so be it.” In other words, it’s a done deal. All you have to do is make sure you are living up to your end of the bargain. God’s love is unconditional, but we have to obey His commands in order to see His promises come to pass. For example, Malachi 3:10 says that we have to bring our tithe to Him in order to see the windows of heaven open. It says in Deuteronomy 5 that we are to honor our parents in order to live a long life. The good news is that when we surrender our hearts to Him, He empowers us to fulfill every one of His commands. He equips us for every good work because He wants to see us live a blessed life. That’s why His promises are “yes and amen”!

A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. I believe that You have a good plan to pour out Your blessing and favor on me. Give me strength to obey Your commands and honor You all the days of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

My Thoughts:
Actually I am in a bit of conflict with this mornings incomming in some places.   As far as Blessings and Obedience to GOD’s commandments that is ABSOLUTELY True.  Blessings come through humility and obedience on our part out of love for Christ Jesus as our Savior.  But many things in the Old Testament under the LAW can not be applied to the New Testament Church.  Tithing of 10% has been replaced with 100% walking in the Holy Spirit. 2 Cor.9:7.    The day of rest (Sabbath) has also been replace by learning to walk in the peace of GOD through the Holy Spirit,  Heb.4.    A sacrifice is no longer required as it has already been made in Christ Jesus once forever. Heb. 9:26. Honor of parents was confirmed by our LORD so is still effective.  So we do need to take care that the traditions of men do not make the Word of God, ineffective.  Christians are now totally subject to the New Will (New Testament) of Christ Jesus as LORD.  His death made HIS Will to be totally effective.

And for sure our believing in the Great and Precious PROMISES of God is where our Victory is found.   Our faith in HIS Promises in spite of what we think, see or feel of this world gives us HIS VICTORY….  Therefore, since these [great] promises are ours, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates and defiles body and spirit, and bring [our] consecration to completeness in the [reverential] fear of God, 2 Cor.7:1    By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature, 1 Pet.1:4.   If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins [dismiss our lawlessness] and [continuously] cleanse us from all unrighteousness [everything not in conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action], 1 John 1:9  AMPC

Yours in HIS great love and wonderful mercy,  Ken <><

Plumer    "Temptations, when we meet them at first, are as the lion that reared upon Samson; but if we overcome them, the next time we see them we shall find a nest of honey within them." - John Bunyan    "If your faith can't be tested, it can't be trusted." - Unknown    "When filled with holy truth the mind rests." - C.H. Spurgeon    "If we look carefully within ourselves, we shall find that there are certain limits beyond which we refuse to go in offering ourselves to God. We hover around these reservations, making believe not to see them, for fear of self-reproach. The more we shrink from giving up any such reserved point, the more certain it is that it needs to be given up. If we were not fast bound by it, we should not make so many efforts to persuade ourselves that we are free." - François Fénelon    "Some people complain that God placed thorns on roses, while others praise him for putting roses among thorns." - unknown    "Pray hardest when it is hardest to pray." - Charles H.
