Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in My Father’s house? Luke 2:49

May God give to you of the dew of the heavens and of the fertility of the earth abundance of grain and wine. Genesis 27:28

Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in My Father’s house? Luke 2:49

Genesis 27:1-5, 15-29, Psalm 135 & Luke 2:41-51

Sometimes we wonder why deception is placed in the Bible such as Rebekah’s plot with Jacob, her favorite son, to deceive her husband Isaac and thereby cheat Esau out of “The Bless­ing” all dying Jewish men gave their oldest son on their deathbed. The extent to which mother and son went to deceive the Father and brother required quite a charade. To make sure Jacob wasn’t discovered, Rebekah not only put the hairy skin of a baby goat on Jacob’s hands and neck, so that he would feel like Esau, but she also dressed him up in Esau’s clothes so that he would smell like Esau.

Rebekah and Jacob pulled off the bait and switch routine. It was all wasted effort, as we shall soon learn, and the only thing they accomplished was to accrue a list of sins. Rebekah, especially showed a lack of faith in God because God had already told her that the younger son, Jacob, not the firstborn Esau, would receive the birthright and “The Blessing.” But she believed that she had to give God help – just like Sarah when she used Hagar  to give Abraham a child. We always get into trouble when we try to help God out by taking matters into our own hands. “Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.”

Many Biblical Scholars write that Jesus was a faithful little Jewish boy but at the age of 12 He began to show that His infancy stages were over and His concern began to turn to His Divine Kinship of God’s Only Son to live His Father’s Will which takes precedent over His family ties. Jesus points out later that following His Truth will pit you against your own families and friends because many will not be able to give up a life of self for an Eternal Life free of material gain.

Jesus began to do His Father’s Work even before He left His mother’s care and was obedient to His parents before taking His Ministry to the people but we learn these things to accomplish our own respect for our parents hopefully being taught the ways of the LORD so we may fulfill God’s Will as adults when we leave the care of our parents. We live a life of free will and by learning to be obedient to His Truth we naturally care for those in need when they need it to Glorify the Father in everything we do. Glorify the Father in your love of loving Christ Jesus. Amen.

So we ask in prayer, Dear God, we pray today for the deceivers of the world. May they learn Truth in Your Word to live each day. We pray for a fruitful life of Your Will. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

In Heaven Above Directing Our Love

A tangled web we can live and weave

Thinking the LORD will not be able to see

But In our mist of lies will our God revive

Our heart of Truth to abide and guide

In youth we see the family as need

As we grow in age we turn the page

To succeed in belief of our own relief

Living for Him we learn not to sin

Not to worry He’s in His Father’s House

In Heaven above directing our love

Be not afraid His Will will shade

Your eternal life in hell by a life to tell

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
