Whoever chooses to do His will shall know whether My teaching is from God or whether I speak on My own

Wig’s Word of God Today 4-8-2011

And they knew not the hidden counsels of God; neither did they count on a recompense of holiness nor discern the innocent souls’ reward. Wisdom 2:22
 
Whoever chooses to do His will shall know whether My teaching is from God or whether I speak on My own. Whoever speaks on his own seeks his own glory, but whoever seeks the glory of the One who sent him is truthful, and there is no wrong in him. John 7: 17-18

Wisdom 2:1a, 12-22, Psalm 34 & John 7:1-2, 10, 25-30
 
Where and when does one finally understand the importance of seeking the counsel of God by practice, praying and proclamation? Did you find it in the streets of loneliness looking for a thrill? Did you find it in the bars of strip clubs seeking to ruin your marriage? Did you find it in the bedroom with a man or woman you knew didn’t love you? We seek hidden thrills of life yet fail to recognize the Truth to accomplish the Will of God because we are too busy seeking the pleasures of life. The LORD wants us to know His Holiness and reap the innocent soul’s reward by seeking His hidden counsels in reading you Bible daily, praying unceasingly and sharing His Son’s Good News with anyone, anywhere at anytime. There is a wisdom we receive allowing us to be steadfast in His love by our practice, prayer and proclamation. Amen.
 
In John today we learn how the people of Galilee began debating if Jesus was indeed the Christ, the Holy One of God as Jesus Himself remained hidden until He decided to teach once again in the Temple area. His teaching astounded many because He taught with Authority as a Rabbi does because they are taught by one another yet Jesus had not been taught by anyone but God Himself. “The Jews were amazed and said, “How does He know scripture without having studied?” Jesus answered them and said, “My teaching is not My own but is from the One Who sent Me.” John 7: 15-16 I have learned the importance of seeking the Glory of the Father by my love of doing His Will to accomplish in me works of faith, charity and love. When we learn to empty ourselves and fill our days with His guidance and glory, we learn to live in surrender to His Truth by loving our love of Christ for the Glory of God. Amen.
 
So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today for the strength to remain silent during our Silent Ignatius retreat this weekend. I ask for Your mercy to hear Your instruction and be guided by Your Holy Spirit to enlighten my heart, mind and soul for the Glory of You. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless,
Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
Romans 8:28
“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed”

 Death of Sins for All of You- John 7

To Galilee He went
To attend the Feast
The Tabernacle was set
The future place retreat

In secret He had gone
Only His Word He shared
Openly He sought to give
His Father’s love prepared

Many thought He was Truth
Some thought He was a lie
Did the authorities know He was Christ?
Even as He was prepared to die

You must know My Father
For life to be given anew
Sent from Heaven above
Death of sins for all of you

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
