For behold, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last

Wig’s Word of God Today 10-27-2010

For behold, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last Luke 13:30

Ephesians 6:1-9, Psalm 145:10-11, 12-13ab, 13cd-14 & Luke 13:22-30

Paul describes a Truth God wants us all to adhere to: obeying your Elders! I think it is important to point out that obeying your elders gives you favor to God and is pleasing to Him. Why else would He have listed it as one of the commandments? As long as what you are obeying is not jeopardizing your health or safety, obeying your parents who give you solid Biblical Instruction are teaching you the ways of the Lord. As a teacher, I have learned that to get respect you must give respect and not force your instruction onto children with anger or disrespect but with reverence for the child’s inner self. By sharing your feelings and needs with children and adults alike, you relay a desire of teaching in love showing by example in your voice, your body movement and your actions. Share His Truth with compassion, respect and love.
 
The sound of wailing and grinding of teeth makes me shudder with fear of the Lord. There is something important here to recognize: Jesus says you are entering the Narrow Gate of Heaven by your strength in the Lord! “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter but will not be strong enough.” Luke 13:24 You can knock and knock and knock but the Lord will not recognize you by your deeds here on earth for your strength in following God’s Commandments weren’t faithful enough for you to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. He will say, “‘I do not know where (you) are from. Depart from me, all you evildoers!'” Luke 13:27 When you are loving your love of Christ, you have repented from your sins, you read you bible daily, you seek His constant protection and guidance in prayers and you proclaim His Good News to all you meet. Your strength to enter the Kingdom of Heaven will be displayed here on earth by your good deeds of faith, hope, charity and love.
 
And so we pray: My Lord and My God, we pray today for strength to finish the race here on earth and to accomplish Your Promise of Eternal Life with Christ Jesus as our Guide. Allow us to learn from our parents, our Elders and our children to grow in you Lord by day and by night. Remind us whether we are first or last, we do everything for Your Glory. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
 
God Bless,

Romans 8:28
 
If They are First or Last
 
My child obey the Lord’s Teaching
In parents Divine principle each day
The first commandment of Promise
A long life on earth to pray
 
To be obedient in deed and in word
Seek not your own guidance
Allowing His Word to obtain
A faithful walk in His Light to sustain
 
His Will in your heart
Christ’s love will never part
Gaining freedom from sin
Glowing with love from within
 
By your works give thanks
Your might in His Word
A Glorious Kingdom to Proclaim
His Dominion forever to endure
 
The strength needed to open
The door of Heaven you’ll see
Some will knock to get in
But evildoers He will send to flee
 
To the depths of hell to grind
Their teeth to sharp little nubs
Your waling will be heard from below
By God’s instruction you did snub
 
From the North and South they will come
By a life they have lead to be
No matter if they are first or last
The Lord knows all from Heaven to see

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
