ALOHA FAMILY & FRIENDS,   Beloved of God,   John 17:20-26

RECYCLING       “WORTH CONSIDERING”   12/10/19   (Across my desk this morning.)

Today’s Scripture
“I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair…He set my feet on solid ground…He has given me a new song to sing…”  
(Psalm 40:1-3, NLT)
He Lifts You Up

Have you ever felt as though you were in a pit of despair? Just as God lifted David out, God is going to lift you out. That depression is not the end. That sickness is not the end, and that addiction is not the final chapter. Where you are right now is not where you’re going to stay. There are brighter days ahead for you that are filled with favor, promotion and increase. Notice that God gives us a new song, but we have to do our part to sing that song. That means you don’t go around talking about your problems, how bad things are, or how you’re never going to make it. No, you have a song of victory! If somebody asks you how you’re doing, your attitude should be, “I refuse to dwell on the negative things that have happened to me. I’m moving forward in strength and power.” Remember, praise precedes the victory, and the Scripture tells us that God inhabits our praises. As you magnify and lift Him up, He will lift you up out of your despair. He’ll set your feet on solid ground, and you’ll move forward in joy and victory in every area of your life.

A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for lifting me up to higher places. Thank You for putting a new song in my heart. I choose to sing and be grateful today for the life of blessing You have in store for me in Jesus’ name! Amen!”

My Thoughts,
For most Christian,  The temptation to allow depression to control us is constant.  The enemy of our soul is constantly at work to try to pull apart that which the Holy Spirit is trying to build in us.   And we make the difference as we are right in the middle of it like a comedy where the angel is at one ear and the demon is at the other and the little kid has to decide which way to go.  Red Skelton use to do that skit really well when I was a little boy:  So if I agree with the darkness then out of my mouth comes past disappointments, gloom and doom,  Talk “stink” about someone (Hawaiian pidgin).  a rerun of past failures,  and even very subjective self evaluation of the past which may mostly be fiction.  But if I agree with the LIGHT, Then my thought will be in line with what God’s thoughts are.   So how do I change.   Simply by deciding to believe the truth of the Holy Scriptures is real and that the world of this testing is temporary.  That means that the more time in spend in my Bible and with Bible believing people the easier it will get.    That fellowship with this soon to be flushed world is a door to the underworld.   Today,  Ezek.38:8 is now beginning to happen before our eyes.  The prophesy of Christ Jesus in Matt.24-25,  Mark 13 and Luke 21 is beginning to read like tomorrows newspaper.  And the Commandments of Christ Jesus are salted all the way through the New Testament.  Commandments that we need to find and lovingly implement in our lives or miss jumping to LIGHT SPEED to be in Eternity with our Creator.   It is by the great and precious promises that we can be made into the image and likeness of GOD.   So Faith is the basis of everything in LIGHT,  GOD is LIGHT and in HIM is no darkness at all.  For by these He has bestowed on us His precious and magnificent promises [of inexpressible value], so that by them you may escape from the immoral freedom that is in the world because of disreputable desire, and become sharers of the divine nature, 2 Peter 1:4

In astronomy they have a new piece of equipment that finds other worlds like ours in space by using light refraction.  The are now finding in our galaxy millions of planets that are at the right distance from their suns to be like earth.  Jesus told us that in HIS Father’s house there were many dwelling places.  In Rev. 2:26  Jesus tells us clearly that if we overcome and do as HE did that would become a part of GOD’s rule of all of HIS creation and live with HIM as HIS family.. 2And he who overcomes [the world through believing that Jesus is the Son of God] and he who keeps My deeds [doing things that please Me] until the [very] end, to him I will give authority and power over the nations;  Rev.2:26,  (Not that I want to rule,  but I sure enjoy sharing God’s Truth with those who are interested and need help in this decaying world.) 

 And of course, there is an option,  we can choose to remain in the gravity of this world and it’s systems and the darkness around us.  This world is slated in prophesy for a total recycling.  All of the broken glass and cement and even the sun and moon are up for recycling into a new heavens and a new earth.  Sound like this whole solar system and all of man’s space junk is up for the recycling after the testing of those who choose to love God.  And as for us, we need to submit to the present recycling in Christ Jesus from being like Adam to being like Jesus prior to that day.

27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:  28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.  Heb. 9:27-28

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