Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever keeps My Word will never see death

Wig’s Word of God Today 4-14-2011

On your part, you and your descendants after you must keep my covenant throughout the ages. Genesis 17:9
 
If I glorify Myself, My glory is worth nothing; but it is My Father Who glorifies Me, of Whom you say, He is our God. John 8:54
 
Genesis 17:3-9, Psalm 105 & John 8:51-59
 
The LORD makes a covenant with Abram and promises him as long as he and his descendants will worship God and God alone, he would make his offspring the kings of the world and they will possess all the land of Canaan. The LORD said Abram would now be called Abraham because of this covenant and God would bless him for his obedience. God expects us to be obedient to His Word and when we are not His graces will be absent from our lives. When our obedience slips, His graces become like the wind blowing in our faces yet we cannot see them. It is only when we live our lives in faith, charity and love by our practice, prayer and proclamation will we receive His graces of divine guidance. We will recognize everything we do as the winds of His presence and our lives will be filled with His Will.
 
Jesus explains to the Jews as we finish Chapter 8 of the Gospel of John that He was present when His Father established the covenant of Abram to be known as Abraham by all the faithful. Of course they did not understand this and began to think He was crazy and blasphemous. He again tells them all they would not taste death if they keep His Word. “Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever keeps My Word will never see death.” John 8:51 He further explains that He did not come to glorify Himself but to give all glory to His Father Who glorifies His Son and sent Him to establish the New Covenant of love to bring peace and forgiveness to the world. I’m sure it must have been hard to believe for the Jews that Jesus was present when God made His covenant with Abraham but through faith and trust we all can be obedient to loving our love of Christ Who takes away the sin of the world. Amen.
 
So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today we will always Glorify You in all things living to accomplish Your Will for all Eternity. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless,

Romans 8:28
“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed”

My Father’s Will My True Call

Death will be void
If you know My Word
Seeking Truth in living
Soaring the skies like a bird

I AM greater than Abraham
His life was Mine to lead
He rejoiced for Our love
The Father’s joy he received

My Father sent me to prove
His love for Me and you
I will die for the sins of all
My Father’s Will My true call

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
