Wig’s Word of God Today 5-13-2012
Could anyone refuse the water of baptism to these people, now they have received the Holy Spirit just as we have? Acts 10:47
Love consists in this: it is not we who loved God, but God loved us and sent His Son to expiate our sins. First John 4:10
No one can have greater love than to lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
Acts 10:25-48, Psalm 98, First John 4:7-10 & John 15:9-17
We learn today in Acts the Truth of living, teaching and giving of Christ’s Salvation is not up to mortal man to give but freely given to ALL humanity as Divinely Designed by God Himself. There is nobody in this all-inclusive life that can bar anyone from receiving the cleansing of the Baptismal waters commanded by Christ as the process of eliminating the sin that fouls up the world.
What a beautiful understanding Peter exclaimed to the small group of men in the house of Cornelius in Acts 10:34-35; “In truth, I see that God shows no partiality. Rather, in every nation whoever fears Him and acts uprightly is acceptable to Him.” Many may say, “Why should man fear God?” Without fear of God’s Omnipotence as the Universe’s Creator then you are not giving God the reverence, respect and regard that He is the Judge of all seen and unseen.
How wonderful it is to obey the fright as obedience to love in Christ. Give everything you do in thought, word and deed to feel a complete spiritual communion with the submission you comply with across every plane the universe provides. Peer into life as kids in a playground avoiding the pang of guilt in attempting to figure life out on your own. To obey is to see life more clearly eliminating the guilty conscience of Satan’s despair. Imagine you are to love as a child would in every amazing encounter with another child: approachable amicable adoration.
Be constantly aware of His presence in every corner of your life. When you can see past each corner into an ocean of wonderful simplistic love, then you have intertwined the obedience to faith, charity and love provoking the obedience to sharing Christ’s Salvation. You begin to as Christ describes to lay your life down for your friends wanting to share and experience the Redemption of Christ. To give your life for others is God’s greatest commandment to live invoking His Spirit each step of the Way. For “no one can have greater love than to lay down his life for his friends” Amen.
Dear Heavenly Father, we pray to share the Baptismal fonts of Christ’s Redemption to anyone, anytime and anywhere. I pray for peace in the hearts of those who mean the most to me. We pray in silence of our own hearts… the greatest intention of our hearts desire. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed“
All in the Name of Jesus Christ the Mold- Acts 10:25-48
Peter was summoned
By a man named Cornelius
His vision to bring Peter
Should get the best of us
Falling at his feet
Peter said stand up and be heard
I too am a human being
Acceptable as a squawking bird
For God shows no partiality
Anyone can find His grace
Seek not what is of earth
Seek only Heaven’s space
Every nation can find His reward
Acting upright shows fear of Him
He will accept you for trying
By giving up a despicable life of sin
Peter spoke with such thunder
The Holy Spirit entered them all
Peter spoke the Word of the LORD
Astounded Gentiles also received the call
Speaking in tongues and glorifying God
Circumcised believers knew no one could withhold
The Baptismal waters of sinful cleansing
All in the Name of Jesus Christ the Mold
