Blessed is the man who perseveres in temptation, for when he has been proved he will receive the Crown of Life that he promised to those who love him. James 1:12


He said to them, “Do you still not understand?” Mark 8:21


James 1:12-18, Psalm 94 & Mark 8:14-21


The day of love can turn into a day of temptation for those who allow the desires of life to penetrate their soul and become like old yeast to corrupt the mind to follow malice and wickedness. Jesus spoke to the Apostles about the corruptive action of leaven as a symbol of the evil dispositions both of the Pharisees and of Herod toward Jesus. The disciples of Jesus are warned against sharing such rebellious attitudes toward Jesus by stating, “Do you still not understand?” Mark 8:21 Paul reminds us in 1 Corinthians 5:8 to celebrate only with sincerity and truth. “Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and Truth.”


Paul describes the man who can persevere through temptation as “blessed” ultimately receiving the “Crown of Life” for his patience, commitment and love towards the people of your life especially God. Paul reminds us that we are never tempted by God for “for God is not subject to temptation to evil” nor does He place temptation in our midst to create desire. Paul explains, “Rather, each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire.” James 1:13-14 When you are tempted by your own desire to fulfill events in a fantasy world, stick to embracing the Truth in God’s Word to discover how God will bless you with the “Crown of Life.” “Let Your Faith Light the World” as the new flag I have for my Prayer Point displays and all will see your light as God’s Light. Amen.


We pray by God, His Son and His Spirit to persevere and overcome any temptation for the Glory of You LORD. We continue our Novena of prayers for Robert M. in NJ. We pray for healing in faith, hope and love of the United States of America. We pray for “40 Days of Life” to close abortion clinics. We pray for the Emmaus Team in NJ. We pray for LIFE FM. We pray for our spouses, children, family, friends, and the unknown Christ-like people we pray with every day. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.


God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed


Birth by the Word of Truth our Right- James 1:12-18


You are blessed if you avoid temptation

A perseverance of Truth laid within

Your heart donning the Crown of Life

As promised to those who love Him


You can’t say your temptation comes from God

God Himself tempts no one to sin

For God is not subject to temptation to evil

Each of us is enticed by our own desire to win


Once conceived it will rise into indulgence

Where sin will reach a height of death

Do not be deceived by evil desires

They will account for a flame in Hell at best


Every Perfect Gift comes from above

A sprinkling from the Father of Lights

No shadow caused by change in firstfruits

Birth by the Word of Truth our Right

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
