  1. Where is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me. Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
  2. Confession:a little more today, than yesterday.
  3. Hi tt. We sing this song often where I go to church. By the time we get to the second stanza, I'm undone ie. as surrendered as i know. Praise His Name! I lift my hands To the coming King To the great I AM To You I sing For You're the One Who reigns within my heart! And I will serve no foreign god Nor any other treasure You are my heart’s desire Your Spirit without measure And to Your Name I will bring my sacrifice.
  4. 1{To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.} The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Ps 14 KJV Hi Mike. I find this interesting: "There is" is added.."The fool hath said in his heart, "No, God"".
  5. @turtletwo Hey sis, thought of you when I found this beautiful commentary within John 1:1-4 (from which I posted above). That essential Good, that uncreated Excellence, which had been from the beginning, from eternity, as equal with the Father, and which at length appeared in human nature for the salvation of sinners, was the great subject concerning which the apostle wrote to his brethren. The apostles had seen Him while they witnessed his wisdom and holiness, his miracles, and love and mercy, during some years, till they saw him crucified for sinners, and afterwards risen from the dead. They touched him, so as to have full proof of his resurrection. This Divine Person, the Word of life, the Word of God, appeared in human nature, that he might be the Author and Giver of eternal life to mankind, through the redemption of his blood, and the influence of his new-creating Spirit. The apostles declared what they had seen and heard, that believers might share their comforts and everlasting advantages. They had free access to God the Father. They had a happy experience of the truth in their souls, and showed its excellence in their lives. This communion of believers with the Father and the Son, is begun and kept up by the influences of the Holy Spirit. The benefits Christ bestows, are not like the scanty possessions of the world, causing jealousies in others; but the joy and happiness of communion with God is all-sufficient, so that any number may partake of it; and all who are warranted to say, that truly their fellowship is with the Father, will desire to lead others to partake of the same blessedness. Matthew Henry's Bible Commentary Blessings, In Him
  6. Greetings Annette. The Lord has shown me that a friend that points only to Christ is better by far than any and all other...combined. I've been blessed with such a friend, and pray to become one like that. "This world is passing away and everything in it. We have been crucified to the world and the world to us. Blessings to those that would be willing to be dead in Christ to all the things of this world, so that Christ may be lifted up; so that all men might see Him written in our hearts." What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life—and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us—what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. These things we write, so that our joy may be made complete. John 1:1-4 Blessings, In Him
  7. Oh my! Who could follow this? was my initial knee-jerk reaction. Thank you! I shared with a friend/sister yesterday, about my first post and the first words you replied to me, "All of Him and nothing of me" (when I first joined Worthy). I took it as a prayer over me and have prayed it, pondered the truth and reality of it, as well as causing others to stop and consider it. There's a lot in those 7 words! I have parroted many of your words/posts and happy to report that everyone has been astonished as to my growth! But me thinks I'm just good at quoting Words that bless and cause me to want to 'reckon myself dead' and alive unto Him. Who knows? But it IS a most glorious, awesome commandment once you see it and experience it! Praise God! Multitude blessings! In Him
  8. Thank you, Tigger56 for the lovely post. And Not me, I can thank you for your beautiful heart-felt prayers before The Throne, because I am included in ‘all that call upon His Name’. My greatest desire is to know and love Him more; to “grow up into Him” and to praise Him more. For He alone is Worthy of our continual praise. For we are HIS and HIS alone. And He will grant our heart’s desire because it is His! Yesterday, in church, I briefly pointed to, and emphasized the word abundantly...(vs hearing “Well done, good and faithful servant). I have often thought what could be greater than to hear the invitation to enter into the joy of the Lord? To me, it would have to more than eclipse the joy that we have known thus far. The “abundant welcomes” that you mentioned, caused me to ponder the word...and I can only imagine... Strong's Greek: 4053. περισσός (perissos) -- abundant Thayer's Greek Lexicon. From peri (in the sense of beyond); superabundant (in quantity) or superior (in quality); by implication, excessive; For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 2Peter 1:11 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. Matthew 25:23 For His glory! \0/ PS Your words/prayer "in all reality and all truth" still rings in my ears...had to add it because of awareness of 'religious spirits'.
  9. Christine: although this is not concerning Ephesians, I remember first learning of faithfulness in: 1 Peter 4:10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms. 1 Corinthians 4:1-2 This, then, is how you ought to regard us: as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the mysteries God has revealed. Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful. To me, faithfulness, as a fruit of the Spirit working in us, is a trustworthiness wrought in the character through 100% obedience and trust in God. From experience, I have come to grow in Christ, through those who have been faithful in Christ, to instruct or advise, truthfully and firmly with me, according to scripture, even to my hurt.
  10. Thank you for this word. It is beautiful. I'm not qualified to articulate on this subject, but can attest to what it has done to my heart. I'm a weeper, so I wept and prayed over these sentences each time I read it: what a good God! Edit: There is so much here and the truths herein are beautiful and cause me to read them over and over; and to love and want to know Him more!
  11. Blessings turtle...perfect scripture 'Rest, Wait and Fret not'...clever allusion to the guitar fret not a cat-lover as such but like rosewood acoustics
  12. And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play. And the LORD said unto Moses, "Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves: They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt." Exodus 32:6-8
  13. The Golden Calf And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, "Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him." And Aaron said unto them, "Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me." And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, "These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt." And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, "To morrow is a feast to the LORD." Exodus 32:1-5
  14. Yes LORD! We come before You with Thanksgiving!
  15. The Sabbath And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 'Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying,' "Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God." Exodus 31:12-18
  16. And I, behold, "I have given with him Aholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are wise hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have commanded thee; The tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony, and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the tabernacle, And the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick with all his furniture, and the altar of incense, And the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and the laver and his foot, And the cloths of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest's office, And the anointing oil, and sweet incense for the holy place: according to all that I have commanded thee shall they do." Exodus 31:6-11
  17. Oholiab and Bezalel And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, "See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah: And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, To devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, And in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to work in all manner of workmanship." Exodus 31:1-5
  18. Could worry be an idol? Whatever forms an image. To turn the eyes, the mind, the attention to anything As with anything that we ascertain or try to figure out in our minds what must be done about it other than the Lord? Idol – Strongs 1492
