My child, remember that you received what was good during your lifetime while Lazarus likewise received what was bad; but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented

Wig’s Word of God Today 3-24-2011

Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose hope is the LORD. Jeremiah 17:7
 
My child, remember that you received what was good during your lifetime while Lazarus likewise received what was bad; but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented. Luke 16:25

Jeremiah 17:5-10, Psalm 1:1-2, 3, 4 and 6 & Luke 16:19-31
 
There is a beauty in a prophet of old who trusts the LORD with all his heart and soul and shares his God-given revelations to save the people regardless of imprisonment or public disgrace. This trust in God came from Jeremiah who gave humanity courage to face evil with faith, hope and courage. His Oracles lead us up to chapter 31 and is commonly called the “Gospel before the Gospel” by many biblical scholars giving humanity a look at the forgiveness the Father will share with all mankind. Jeremiah reminds us to surrender to He Who created all and judges all by his statement; “I, the LORD, alone probe the mind and test the heart, To reward everyone according to his ways, according to the merit of his deeds.” Jeremiah 17:10 Loving your love of Christ will give you strength to trust in the LORD always to serve the poor, clothe the naked and feed the hungry anyplace, anytime or anywhere in the world. Amen.
 
Jesus tells the story of the unnamed rich man and the poor sickly man named Lazarus. He describes the poor man as the one “lying at his door was a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, who would gladly have eaten his fill of the scraps that fell from the rich man’s table. Dogs even used to come and lick his sores.” Luke 16:20-21 Luke describes this parable with an effort to again warn humanity that being one of wealth is not as important as being a person of trust in the LORD keeping us aware repentance is needed before your death not afterwards from the depths of the Netherworld. “‘My child, remember that you received what was good during your lifetime while Lazarus likewise received what was bad; but now he is comforted here, whereas you are tormented. Moreover, between us and you a great chasm is established to prevent anyone from crossing who might wish to go from our side to yours or from your side to ours.” Luke 16:25-26
 
So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today we stay focused on the Truth of Your Son to help the poor, care for the sick and feed the hungry. We have continual prayers for the Henley Family. Please give them peace my LORD. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

God Bless,

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

God’s Redemption a Covenant’s Right

He was rich and unnamed
Seeking to cool Satan’s flames
Not embraced by God’s love
His life of sin judged from above

A poor man named Lazarus lay at his door
Willing to eat his scraps from the floor
His body covered in torment of ugly sores
Even the dogs would lick the wounds he bore

At his death Lazarus was carried away by Angels
To the bosom of Abraham waiting and able
To comfort him and give him God’s love
His death would be honored by God above

The rich man died and was buried
His fate sealed in the box his family carried
To a grave to descend to eternal torture
The Netherworld his fate not his fortune

Begging from below to be comforted from pain
His soul in eternal torment from Satan’s flames
Asking to be cooled by the tip of his tongue
No passing the chasm is allowed by anyone

This line is drawn in the sand on earth
God’s says to repent before entering the dirt
His Son is the Way and the Light of life
God’s Redemption a Covenant’s 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
