MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL !!!!!!

She will bear a son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.””Matthew 1:21 (ESV)
Unlike the reading from Luke, Matthew does not speak of angels, shepherds, or a manger. Matthew simply states that Mary was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit and that the LORD tells Joseph in a dream not to reject her. Instead, God told him to name the baby, Jesus.
In contrast, Luke mentions nothing of the revealing of Mary’s pregnancy to Joseph or any of his struggle with what to do about it.
If we were to remove any of the Gospels from the Bible, we would lose important information, but taken together, we see a full picture of Jesus’ birth, life, death and resurrection.
There is an old expression, “Not being able to see the forest for the trees.” In terms of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we need the trees to see the forest.”
Each one of us has been given our own individual personality. We see life from different perspectives and each one of us has been given individual gifts in ministry. One person is not greater than another, but each of our stories and the way in which we love the LORD and our neighbor is important to the total story of salvation.
There may be some in the world who are perishing because they need your specific story, your particular gift, and your act of love to reveal Jesus.
When the final chapter of the story of salvation is finally written and we stand before the throne to hear whose names are written in the Book of Life, we will discover how each of us participated in the story which completed God’s plan.
Never think you are unimportant. That would be a lie, just like saying that one book of the Bible is unimportant. Each of us has the opportunity to change the world, and we need one another, working in the power of the Holy Spirit, to complete the process.

MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!!!!

What Was Meant For Evil God Used For His Good!!!!

I’m on the plane just having departed Laguardia for Thetford Farms = Home. It’s been a great 11 days in NYC. I truly am a blessed man living in the quiet countryside of rural Oklahoma, and then to be able to spend months in the hustle and bustle of big cities among the diverse people groups of the world.

This past weekend I had some really great encounters and shared Jesus wth several, mainly Jewish people, at Union Square. On May Day every year Union Square reminds me somewhat of how Paul described to us in Acts 17 of Athens.

The park becomes the place for public expression of every cause under the sun. Thousands and thousands of people are present, both to speak and to listen and to discuss. On Sunday a nice looking, very clean cut young man was on the steps speaking. I have to tell you that by appearance this guy looked like the kind of fellow you would want your daughter to bring home.

I stopped to listen to him speak among only a small group listening to him. As I listened to his words I could hardly believe what I was hearing. He was spewing out the most anti-Semitic verbiage I have ever heard. He blamed all of the ills and problems of the entire planet on the Jewish people. He was again calling for the annihilation of the Jewish people.

There was a young lady standing next to me and I leaned over and asked her what she thought of his ideas. She stated she was Jewish and she was scared to death. I then found out that the only listeners standing were all Jewish as well. This is the first time I had ever stood before a person calling for me and the lives of my peoples deaths while he was standing so boldly in his proclamation.

This opened the door for me to have a 30 minute conversation with Hagit about Jesus the Messiah. This is the first time she had ever heard of the love of God through Jesus, and that He came to this earth to die for the sins of mankind so that we could become righteous if we would only trust Him. Please pray for Hagit that she will come to the knowledge of the truth.

After my conversation with Hagit I went up to the venomous young man and asked him some questions, which he refused to answer, and then I shared some of my thoughts with him. He left immediately after my words. The terrible thing is he was speaking using some biblical language and a few verses as proof for his ideas. It sounds a lot like WWII Germany under Hitler. My prayer is that God will spare another Holocaust type event from ever occurring and that King Messiah Jesus will soon return and set up His kingdom of true peace.

That’s all for now.  I’m home for 3 weeks before leaving for Paris, London, and NY for 55 straight days. A busy summer is ahead of me. Pray with me that God will save many Jewish people in these 3 campaigns.

Shalom until next time, Lord willing,

New York Sidewalks (Humorous)

I have always walked very fast plus, my legs are fairly long. I fit in with the speed of New Yorkers when it comes to walking. I saw this yesterday and thought it was funny. Hopefully you can have a laugh.

Comfort En Route Home !!!!!!

Comfort En Route Home !!!!!!

And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die: and God will surely visit you, and bring you out of this land unto the land which he swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. (Genesis 50:24)

Joseph had been an incarnate providence to his brethren. All our Josephs die, and a thousand comforts die with them. Egypt was never the same to Israel after Joseph was dead, nor can the world again be to some of us what it was when our beloved ones were alive.

But see how the pain of that sad death was alleviated! They had a promise that the living God would visit them. A visit from Jehovah! What a favor! What a consolation! What a heaven below! O Lord, visit us this day; though indeed we are not worthy that Thou shouldest come under our roof.

But more was promised: the Lord would bring them out. They would find in Egypt a cold welcome when Joseph was dead; nay, it would become to them a house of bondage. But it was not to be so forever; they would come out of it by a divine deliverance and march to the land of promise. We shall not weep here forever. We shall be called home to the gloryland to join our dear ones. Wherefore, “comfort one another with these words.”

A Covenant He Remembers !!!!!!

A Covenant He Remembers !!!!!!

He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant. (Psalm 111:5)

Those who fear God need not fear want. Through all these long years the Lord has always found meat for His own children, whether they have been in the wilderness, or by the brook Cherith, or in captivity, or in the midst of famine. Hitherto the Lord has given us day by day our daily bread, and we doubt not that He will continue to feed us till we want no more.

As to the higher and greater blessings of the covenant of grace, He will never cease to supply them as our case demands. He is mindful that He made the covenant and never acts as if He regretted it. He is mindful of it when we provoke Him to destroy us. He is mindful to love us, keep us, and comfort us, even as He engaged to do. He is mindful of every jot and tittle of His engagements, never suffering one of His words to fall to the ground.

We are sadly unmindful of our God, but He is graciously mindful of us. He cannot forget His Son who is the surety of the covenant, nor His Holy Spirit who actively carries out the covenant, nor His own honor, which is bound up with the covenant. Hence the foundation of God standeth sure, and no believer shall lose his divine inheritance, which is his by a covenant of salt.

Need To Open Our Mouths !!!!!!

Need To Open Our Mouths !!!!!!

Open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. (Psalm 81:10)

What an encouragement to pray! Our human notions would lead us to ask small things because our deservings are so small; but the Lord would have us request great blessings. Prayer should be as simple a matter as the opening of the mouth; it should be a natural, unconstrained utterance. When a man is earnest he opens his mouth wide, and our text urges us to be fervent in our supplications.

Yet it also means that we may make bold with God and ask many and large blessings at His hands, Read the whole verse, and see the argument: “I am Jehovah, thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.” Because the Lord has given us so much He invites us to ask for more, yea, to expect more.

See how the little birds in their nests seem to be all mouth when the mother comes to feed them. Let it be the same with us. Let us take in grace at every door. Let us drink it in as a sponge sucks up the water in which it lies. God is ready to fill us if we are only ready to be filled. Let our needs make us open our mouths; let our faintness cause us to open our mouths and pant; yea, let our alarm make us open our mouths with a child’s cry. The opened mouth shall be filled by the Lord Himself. So be it unto us, O Lord, this day.
