pratzA SHEEP GATHERING

MICAH’S DECLARATION:

Micah declares to the people of the day that the JUDGE was coming, referring to God!!

And God was angry because of widespread SINof Idolatry and…covetousness, abuses, lawlessness, among other things.

And this isn’t just referring to the nation’s leaders, but to everyone who had cultivated a heart of acceptance to do evil in the sight of God.

The CULTIVATION Effect –

In Genesis 2:15, Adam’s job in the Garden was to “tend and keep”–or “cultivate and guard” what God had provided.

To CULTIVATE is the effort a farmer makes to ensure that he will produce a bountiful crop.

If a FARMER is lazy, if he fails to cultivate the ground, to do nothing to promote growth, nature will follow its course and the farm begins to degenerate.

If we don’t “guard” our hearts; we get lazy…

In Quietness and Trust is Your Strength

The Lord Is With Us

2731ee92cac0076cef872a74999f7bf7God has done an astounding merciful work: because of His great love for us, He has raised repentant sinners to His right hand here in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2:4-6). May God grant us a spirit of wisdom and revelation to apprehend more of the riches of this glorious truth right now. Let us leave all our burdens at the Cross, pause, and meditate on this: we are one with the resurrected and glorified Lord! He lives in us! We are His bride, and He is purifying us from all unrighteousness! He enables us to overcome our sin nature – we are released from captivity and set free! (See Heb. 4:9-11; 1John 1:9, 3:24; Ro. 6:14; Isaiah 61:1)

Praise God for loving us so! May we be rooted and grounded together in this four-dimensional love of Christ that surpasses knowledge! (See Eph. 3:14-19)

Now, know that by…

The Life Church

An open letter from Mr. Right

#UNFILTERED

tumblr_miso0z255m1s16dq2o1_500

Dear daughters of God,

Contrary to what you have heard, I do exist. I’m no fairytale hunk with big muscles and thing for chick flicks (although, I may or may not have a man bun). So, put your daydreams of love off to the side for a minute and let me tell you what makes me, “Mr. Right” and why people keep telling you to wait for me.

The first thing I really want for you to understand is that I was not born your Mr. Right. I promise we weren’t destined to cross paths and lock eyes from across a crowded room and fall hopelessly in love. God has been working in my heart for YEARS! Do you realize what was in my heart before Christ saved me?! Of course you don’t because we haven’t met yet, but I can promise you it is equally as crazy and sinful as…

The Fifth Commandment

12f15a62ab77208b0dd42643d9f9e26b

Exodus 20:12 ~ Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.

Exodus 21:17 ~ Whoever curses his father or his mother shall be put to death.

Ephesians 6:1-3 ~ Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this this is right. Honor your father and mother (this is the first commandment with a promise), that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.

Psalm 11:13 ~ If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?

Honor is the bond between generations (George Stob).

The Fifth Commandment is at the heart of God’s Law. It concludes the first four Commandments that address our relationship with God. It introduces that last six commandments which govern relationships between people.

About a generation ago, American youth in general quit honoring their parents. Today we see appalling results. Respect and reverence for elders have been replaced with rejection, rebellion, and rioting against authority in the home school, church and government.

Youth are not entirely to blame for the breakdown of the family. Many parents fail to command the respect of their young because their own lives are in shambles. Obedience to the Fifth Commandments begins with faithful parents and spiritual elders who teach and guide the young by example and loving discipline.

When parents flout God’s moral law in relation to family, society and government, the meltdown passes on to the next generation. Parents who drink, flirt have no moral authority to restrain their children from drugs and porn. When church and clergy compromise the norms of marriage and family, we should not be surprised at the rising tide of divorce/annulment and teenage pregnancy among Christians.

The Fifth Commandment is hailed as the first commandment with promise: that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land (Ephesians 6:2-3). It would be unwise to reduce this promise to motive. Doing right for rewards is no longer right. We honor and obey our parents, not for reward but simply because it’s the right thing to do. As Paul said, children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right (Ephesians 6:1). When you do that, things will go well for you.

Honoring parents, however, does not guarantee immunity from sickness, accidents, or premature death. The promise linked to the Fifth Commandment is not about rewards but results. It’ about how life works. When children honor their parents, there is no generation gap, no matter how times may change. When children respect and obey their parents, they have the best chance at a long, fruitful and happy life.

The Fifth Commandment with its promise simply echoes general principle of the Bible: the only way to live life well is to live life on God’s terms.

“Honor your parents unconditionally ~ in thought, word and deed ~ regardless how they live and no matter how they treat you (PAST, PRESENT or FUTURE).

~50.DAY 2015~

” My parents are not perfect,flawless and faultless but they are a gift from God that makes them as a perfect Mother and Father to me.”
