Wigs Word of God Today 5-18-2013
Embrace all with Jesus charity judging not the sinner but sharing the Salvation of sin.
Let it be known to you that this Salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles; they will listen. With complete assurance and without hindrance he proclaimed the Kingdom of God and taught about the LORD Jesus Christ. Acts 28:28, 31
There are also many other things that Jesus did, but if these were to be described individually, I do not think the whole world would contain the books that would be written. John 21:25
Acts 28:16-31, Psalm 11 & John 21:20-25
Our study of the Book of Acts comes to subtle ending with Paul explaining the Prophets of Old description of Salvation was fulfilled by the LORD Jesus Christ over and over again convincing some but confusing others as even Paul fulfills the Prophesy of Isaiah from chapter 6:6-9 describing with such Spirit-led accuracy and Authority the Truth of Salvation God had brought to the world as described by He amongst the bearers of witness from the beginning of time.
“Some were convinced by what he had said, while others did not believe. Without reaching any agreement among themselves they began to leave; then Paul made one final statement. “Well did the Holy Spirit speak to your ancestors through the prophet Isaiah, saying: ‘Go to this people and say: You shall indeed hear but not understand. You shall indeed look but never see. Gross is the heart of this people; they will not hear with their ears; they have closed their eyes, so they may not see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and be converted, and I heal them.’” Acts 28:24-27
Paul has a lot of convincing to do establishing the First Church amongst the gentiles would be as challenging as the Jews laying the Divine Foundation for Christ’s Resurrection to now as described by Christ where “the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against It.” We will prevail by the Promise established by God for he who believes in the Son of Salvation. We will speak and some will not hear while even when the do listen the will not understand keeping us focused on prayer and surrender without judgment loving all as Commanded by Jesus Himself for the Works of Christ could never fill all “that would be written.”
When I think about prayer and surrender to a Way of Christ, I think of serving the less to see more engaging pity by His Purpose noticing not sin but Salvation’s grace all should feel by the love of Christ’s Charity we lovingly seal in our hearts and souls by obedience to Deliverance by God’s Destiny for all mankind imprisoned but free radical diseased. I find Jesus more in the eyes of the homeless, hungry and hurt as much as I find His beaming Spirit from the eyes of the imprisoned held behind the gates of mistakes in society’s fulfillment of God’s Decrees. My poem today reflects the love of Christ we bring to the prisoners in South Florida’s Kairos Prison Ministry from our monthly reunion we experienced last night.
Please join me in praying for a 9-year-old little girl to know her daddy’s heart of love and protection as well as his own Walk in the LORD’s love these next nine days. Please also join me in praying for a man in blue whose description of the tears expressed last night he felt when given his first Bible grasping Freedom in the walls sentenced by sin. Behind the walls of punishment to the darkness of living on the streets of God He asks us to embrace all with His charity judging not the sinner but sharing the Salvation of sin. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to share as we dare for You LORD for the witness of Your Son following Paul to the hearts of the lost. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. Day two of novena prayers for Roxy. We begin a novena of prayers for Sal, Melina and Page. LORD from Psalm 17:15 I chant- “I am just—let me see Your face; when I awake, let me be filled with Your presence.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
My daily love for Him I cannot waste– In honor of Prisoners needing Prayer
Seeking the blessings
Not seeking the Truth
We make Him first in action
We make Him first as proof
Being freed by obligation
Searching in vain to face
Prayer for selfish rights of vindication
Praying not for God’s grace
Letting go to Him First
Mess not up the gift to relate
My life struggles with haste
My daily love for Him I cannot waste
