Shards

Psalm 34:18 NKJV The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.

Oxford dictionary states that  a shard is a piece of broken ceramic, metal, glass, or rock, typically having sharp edges. A bottle had broken before and I started to pick it up, when someone told me, never pick up shards with your hands. They then gave me a broom and brought out the vacuum. I would like for us to think about our broken pieces as shards today. All of the wounds that we have carried in our hearts from times past. Whatever may keep coming up to the surface.

Today, I would like to consider how we can only safely give those pieces to the Lord. He is the only One who can handle them. Every time that we pick them up with our bare hands we get cut. Consider how bad they hurt us when we think about them. The Lord is there waiting with open arms. He is not afraid of the shards. He can smooth them and put those pieces back together again.

Maybe you were sexually, verbal or mentally abused. Were you cheated on? You might have forgiven them but the shard of hurt and betrayal keeps coming to the surface. Perhaps you have been neglected and the shard of not being good enough keeps breaking through when you are most vulnerable. Were you a victim of a senseless crime? The shard of hopelessness or bitterness trying to come through and pierce your fingers?

The thing is bad things happen to good people sometimes. We have to give those things to the Lord. He loves us so much and just wants us to be whole and well. He gave us a free will though. So, it is our choice as to whether or not we will nurse our wounds ourselves and try to tuck it away, or will we sincerely give them to God where He alone can fix our broken pieces?

Psalm 147:3 NKJV He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

First step in fixing any problem is realizing that you have a problem.

Second is bring it to God. He alone can heal us.

Third release it. Quit hanging on. That shard has dug far enough into your soul.

Fourth is every time it tries to come back up (the devil is good at doing that) we give it to God. Just say I refuse to believe that or think that anymore, or I have forgiven that person. God has those broken pieces and He is mending me and making me whole.

Fifth is just praise the Lord for His goodness. You will feel His love and redeeming power inside your heart.

Pray with me please.

Father God,

How holy and righteous You are. You alone are worthy of all praise. Thank You for giving us everything that we need. You have blessed us so much and You have been faithful. You are good and You are merciful. You are so loving and patient. We just want to admit whatever shard that we are holding onto. We bring it to Your feet. We release it to You. We do not want to hold it any longer, Father, it hurts too much. Give us the strength and the right words to say if or when it tries to rear its ugly head anymore. We praise You and exalt You as Lord over all of our shards. There is not one thing that You cannot heal. Thank You for right now taking those shards and smoothing them. Who is there like our God? Who can heal like You can? There is none. We desire You and You alone. Fill any empty spaces with more of You. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Puzzle Pieces

Like the pieces of a puzzle, our lives seem to be and

How each one touches another is such a mystery.

Without a piece, what do we say

But that the puzzle is missing a piece or incomplete.

Lord, please help me

I’m hurting today in the loss of my dad.

I am lost, lonely and empty inside.

I cry out, Father, help me

For the immense pain is weighing so heavy on my heart.

He lovingly brushes my hair back whispering

My child, I have Your dad in my arms

For you see, my puzzle was missing a piece

You will see him again one day

When I bring another ‘piece’ home.

Where there will be joy evermore.

Until that day hold on, my child, to my unwavering hand.

For I long for the day when all of My pieces have come home.

It will be then that the most beautiful puzzle will be

Complete.

written by Donna Nielsen

Please pray with me.

Father God,

We love and exalt You. Thanks so much for always being there for Your children. No matter what we face, You are there holding our hand. Thank You for helping me rewrite the poem that I had written when my dad passed away twenty-two years ago. I couldn’t remember the exact words that I had written previously, but I am thankful for Your help in writing them again now. It is good to revisit the memories. I remember the time after he passed and I was so broken for months afterwards. I remember how I cried out to You every day of those months with such agony. I also remember You revealing to me the smallest size of Your glory when I was broken and sobbing in deep prayer. The image was so small. What You showed me was like the size of a tenth of a piece of tissue. Oh, how Your glory shone so brightly. Immediately I was filled with intense joy. All of the pain went away and I rejoiced knowing that my dad was in Your presence. He is no longer apart from You. My dad is beholding ALL of Your glory. That is so wonderful to me. Thank You, Lord, for Your gentle lovingkindness and the mercy that You had showed me on that day. Thank You for revealing Yourself to Your children in so many mighty and magnificent ways. You are awesome. May this experience encourage my brothers and sisters who have lost loved ones. I love You so much and pray always in Jesus’ name. Amen.

This picture was displayed at my dad’s funeral. It meant so much to me. But the original picture went to my sister. My niece, Jennifer, knowing how much I wanted it, actually took the time to copy every picture and cut them out to present this one to me. What a beautiful ‘piece’ she is.

I had approximately 17 years that included my dad. He was in a terrible accident when I was a child that left him as a shell of the man that he had been. It took him several years to recuperate. He was never fully the same after the accident. But I never got to see him again after the accident until I was in my teen years. He and mom had divorced and I was put in foster care at the age of twelve, I believe. So from around age 5 until I was a teenager, maybe 15 or 16, I never saw him. We did get close again after I became an adult and he was involved in our lives until he passed away when I was 33. I miss and love my dad. It is such a great consolation knowing that I will see him again one day. My question for you today is, do you know my Jesus? Have you asked Him to come into your heart and to save you from your sins? He is the Only way to Heaven and even now He is calling to you.

I confess that Jesus is Lord (Philippians 2:11)! We are not to believe every spirit, but to try them to see if they are from God. For there are many false prophets. The Bible says this is how we will know: Every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. And is the spirit of the antichrist (1 John 4:1-3).

The Light

Psalm 27:1 NKJV The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?

We know that we, as Christians, will make mistakes. The question is, when we do make the mistakes and we see the light will we run to the Light and get cleaned up, or will we run away from the Light and cower in darkness? We are the light of the world (Matthew 5:14), because of Christ in us. We are the city on a hill.

Jesus is God (14:9). God is the word ( John 1 ). He gives us light for His word is the Light (Psalm 119:105). He will give us the oil we need to shine bright for Him. We just have to stay plugged in to the Word. Dig in deep to His word. That is one of the ways He talks to us. He will show us the way. If we get off of the narrow path, His word will bring us back. He is there for us every time we slip or fall. Come to the Light. Stay in the Light. Run to the Light. Walk with the Light. He will guide you in all your ways (Proverbs 3:6). This is no time to turn back now. Whatever your failure was, ask God to use it for His glory. Don’t let the little bump in the road take your eyes off the main goal. We have come too far to give up now. Besides, what does the world have to offer us? Nothing. We have everything we need in Jesus.

Pray with me please.

Father God,

Thank You for being the God who sees and hears us (Genesis 16:13 & 1 John 5:14). You love us and have such compassion on Your children. Your mercy is new every day. Your kindness is from everlasting to everlasting (Psalm 103:17). You withhold no good thing from Your children and we thank and praise You for that (Psalm 84:11). Today we ask for Your help in getting back on track for Your kingdom.

Forgive us for acting in the flesh, saying the wrong things or lacking faith. We ask that You would fill us with fresh oil. We ask that Your anointing be upon us, and that in whatever way we have failed You, that You would use it for Your glory. We aren’t going away from You, we are running to You, scars and all. We know that You are the only One who can take our failures, pasts and mistakes and make a masterpiece. Thank You for gathering the broken and shattered pieces of our lives, that can cut, but they do not cut You. In Your hands we are put back together. Thank You for the blessed peace that we have just laying everything at Your feet. We are holding nothing back. We are not trying to hide anything from You. We come before You longing for Your touch. Help us, Lord, as we need Your strength, to help others. We will give You all the praise for You alone are worthy. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Pray Through

Eighth and final set of notes from Derek Prince and his sermon Final Judgement Divided into eight blogs. Some people just like to read and I have found his sermons very helpful in my Christian walk.

In the beginning God created the heavens (plural) and earth (singular).

2 Corinthians 12:2 NKJV  I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago–whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows–such a one was caught up to the third heaven.

Logic says that there cannot be a third heaven if there is not the first two.

Ephesians 4:9-10 NKJV (Now this, “He ascended”–what does it mean but that He also first descended into the lower parts of the earth? He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.)

All the heavens. In English, it is not correct to use the word all in less than three of anything. That is the minimum.

This helps us to know so that when we pray, we do not give up when we don’t get an answer right away. Realize that there is an opposing kingdom between us and God. See previous blog https://thefathersfeet.wordpress.com/2021/05/02/two-kingdoms/https://thefathersfeet.wordpress.com/2021/05/02/two-kingdoms/

Daniel fasted and prayed for 3 weeks. He didn’t abstain from all foods. He only ate simple basic food, took no wine and, in the living Bible we see, no desserts. Daniel was earnestly seeking God. Nothing happened until Daniel prayed. The angel was sent with the answer to Daniel’s prayer when Daniel first started to pray. It took three weeks for the angel to arrive because on the way from God’s throne to Daniel’s presence on earth, he encountered satanic opposition. Daniel had to pray through. He had to hold on for 21 days before he got the answer (Daniel 10:1-11-1).

Pray with me please

Father God,

How awesome You are. Thank You for Your care, love, concern and provision. You have supplied us with so many blessings. We dare not take any of them for granted. We thank You for our very life and all the things You have supplied us with. May we use our time and talents to bring glory to Your name. Thank You for the messages from Derek Prince. They have been so helpful in our walk with You. May we all realize that we may not always get our answer right away, but that doesn’t mean You didn’t hear or aren’t responding. We just have to be patient and have faith. Your way is always the best way and Your timing is always perfect. We love You and submit to Your great will for our lives. Praying all things always in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Two Kingdoms

Seventh set of notes from Derek Prince and his sermon Final Judgement Divided into eight blogs. Some people just like to read and I have found his sermons very helpful in my Christian walk.

Matthew 12:26,28 NKJV  If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?

But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. 

There are two invisible spiritual kingdoms. Jesus and His servants represent the Kingdom of God. Satan and his demons and followers represent the kingdom of satan. They clash upon the driving out of demons. Jesus and His servants are of course more powerful than the kingdom of satan.

Ephesians 6:12 TLB For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against persons without bodies—the evil rulers of the unseen world, those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world; and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world.

We are dealing with persons. They are persons without bodies, spirit beings. Satan’s kingdom is highly organized, for which he gets no credit. He was one of the chief angels (Ezekiel 28:14). He took some of the angels with him and is using his kingdom against the Kingdom of God. Make no mistake satan is very powerful and he is also a very evil being. Satan wants to dominate the entire world with his system of darkness.

Isaiah 14:12-17 TLB How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground—mighty though you were against the nations of the world. 13 For you said to yourself, “I will ascend to heaven and rule the angels. I will take the highest throne. I will preside on the Mount of Assembly far away in the north.* 14 I will climb to the highest heavens and be like the Most High.” 15 But instead, you will be brought down to the pit of hell, down to its lowest depths. 16 Everyone there will stare at you and ask, “Can this be the one who shook the earth and the kingdoms of the world? 17 Can this be the one who destroyed the world and made it into a shambles, who demolished its greatest cities and had no mercy on his prisoners?”

Satan’s ambition was to elevate himself to be higher than God. He got one third of the angels to follow him. It comes as no surprise that he wants to take as many people with him to hell as he can. The Bible says he is out to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10). He uses whatever vices and whomever he can to accomplish his mission. That’s why it is extremely important to guard ourselves with the word of God. Watch what kind of music you listen to, television shows you watch or even which ministers you put yourself under. God does not contradict His word. That is a great indicator as to whether or not you may be under false teaching.

Some fruit of the satanic kingdom that will be judged by God are pride, rebellion, tale-bearing, manipulation, scheming, plotting, being filled with violence, spells, incantations, lies, unbelief, envy, addiction, anger, murder, arrogance, greed, uncaring, hatred and anything else that is evil. See Revelation 21:8, 22:15, Proverbs 6:16-19, 17:15 & Romans 2:5

The fruit of the Spirit of God is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). 

Pray with me please

Father God,

We thank You today for the life that You have given us. We praise and exalt You as God over all. Yours is the kingdom, Yours is the power, Yours is the glory forever. There is nothing that You cannot do. Today we ask that Your Holy Spirit would produce the fruit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23) in our lives. May we be doers and not just hearers of Your word (James 1:22). One day You will judge the world and Your judgment is righteous and true. Help us to guard our hearts (Proverbs 4:23). Let us always be aware of the kind of things that we allow into our minds. May we hunger and thirst for Your word and live our lives fully committed to doing Your will. Help us to see and apply the truth, as supplied, in Your holy word. We love You and long for the day that You call us home. Oh, to be in Your presence! What a day that will be! In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Serving the Lord

Sixth set of notes from Derek Prince and his sermon Final Judgement Divided into eight blogs. Some people just like to read and I have found his sermons very helpful in my Christian walk.

Matthew 25:14-30 NKJV

14 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. 15 And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. 16 Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. 17 And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. 18 But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. 19 After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them.

20 “So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ 21 His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ 22 He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ 23 His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

24 “Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’

26 “But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. 27 So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. 28 So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.

29 ‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. 30 And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

God wants us to give our all at whatever He has blessed us with. God doesn’t ask more from us then He knows we are capable of doing. We see in the above passage that laziness is wickedness in God’s eyes (v. 26). Again, if you do not have any talents, take the money you do have and invest in a ministry that is bearing fruit. Everyone of us have something that we can be doing for the Lord. Money, time, witnessing, praying or fasting. Search your heart and ask God if there is something that He gave you and you are not using it. He will reveal it to you.

Matthew 7:7 NKJV Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Father God,

Thank You that You can use each of us. Indeed, You are already using us. We ask today that You search our hearts and reveal to us if there is any gift that You have given us that we are not using. Forgive us, Father, and open our eyes to new and more ways to be faithfully serving You. We know that when we do things for others it is like doing them for You (Matthew 25:40). Help us to be humble about the things we do. We need not shout it for everyone to see or know. The only One who needs to know is You. May our hearts be right in all that we do. Fill us with Your Holy Spirit so that we can be more than conquerors. Let us be lights of the glorious gospel to this lost and dying world. Help us to live and love like You do. You are our great example. We love You and ask all things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Jesus is the Judge

Fifth set of notes from Derek Prince and his sermon Final Judgement Divided into eight blogs. Some people just like to read and I have found his sermons very helpful in my Christian walk.

Luke 19:11-27 NKJV

Now as they heard these things, He spoke another parable, because He was near Jerusalem and because they thought the kingdom of God would appear immediately. 12 Therefore He said: “A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and to return. 13 So he called ten of his servants, delivered to them ten minas, and said to them, ‘Do business till I come.’ 14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We will not have this man to reign over us.’

15 “And so it was that when he returned, having received the kingdom, he then commanded these servants, to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 16 Then came the first, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned ten minas.’ 17 And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant; because you were faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities.’ 18 And the second came, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned five minas.’ 19 Likewise he said to him, ‘You also be over five cities.’

20 “Then another came, saying, ‘Master, here is your mina, which I have kept put away in a handkerchief. 21 For I feared you, because you are an austere man. You collect what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.’ 22 And he said to him, ‘Out of your own mouth I will judge you, you wicked servant. You knew that I was an austere man, collecting what I did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow. 23 Why then did you not put my money in the bank, that at my coming I might have collected it with interest?’

24 “And he said to those who stood by, ‘Take the mina from him, and give it to him who has ten minas.’ 25 (But they said to him, ‘Master, he has ten minas.’) 26 ‘For I say to you, that to everyone who has will be given; and from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. 27 But bring here those enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, and slay them before me.’ ”

The one who made the most got the extra. Use your gift and get more. Fail to use it, then you will lose it.

We will be rewarded in Heaven according to our faithfulness on earth.

Find a ministry that is bringing forth fruit. Check it, test it and then put your money in it. Doing that is putting money in the bank. You will get your interest when the Lord comes.

Pray with me please

Father God,

How great and mighty You are. How wonderful are Your works among men. We are blessed to have You as our loving Father. You are righteous, fair and true in Your judgement. You are holy. Thank You for the mercy that You have shown us, in that while we were yet sinners Jesus died for us (Romans 5:8). All we have to do is accept the free gift You have offered to us (John 3:16). We (Your children) have accepted You, Jesus, and we ask for even more of Your power to accomplish what Your great will is for our lives. Bless all of Your children reading and draw every single one of us closer to Your side. May we listen to Your word and learn at Your feet together and we will give You all the praise for we ask all things in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Service?

Fourth set of notes from Derek Prince and his sermon Final Judgement Divided into eight blogs. Some people just like to read and I have found his sermons very helpful in my Christian walk.

Three ways to examine your personal service to God.

  • Check your motive. The only motive that is acceptable is if we are seeking God’s glory.

1 Corinthians 10:31 KJV Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

  • Is our work done in obedience to what God says in His word? We must do what we know is God’s will for us to do.

Matthew 7:21-27 NKJV “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’24 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. 26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

  • What is the power that we are operating in? Is the Holy Spirit working in us or is it the flesh?

Romans 15:18-19 NKJV For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ has not accomplished through me, in word and deed, to make the Gentiles obedient— 19 in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem and round about to Illyricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

The Bible says to work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people (Colossians 3:23). Who are we really trying to impress anyway? God knows our hearts (1 Samuel 16:7). He alone will judge us. If your motives haven’t been right in your giving, just pray and ask the Lord to forgive you, cleanse you and help you to do better. We can all do better. Let’s try our best to please our Father in all we say or do! God bless us all and draw us so close to His side, where there is true peace and joy forever.

Pray with me please.

Father God,

You have been so loving and kind to us. Thank You that You don’t look at us as a man looks, but rather You look at our hearts. Help us to have clean hearts and pure motives in Your sight. May we always be doers of Your word and not hearers only deceiving ourselves. Our time on earth is short. Please help us to advance Your kingdom and to do it humbly for You and not for the applause of men. Thank You for bringing this word to us today. You are awesome and we love You. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Scenes of Judgement

Third set of notes from Derek Prince and his sermon Final Judgement Divided into eight blogs. Some people just like to read and I have found his sermons very helpful in my Christian walk.

1 Peter 1:17 NKJV  And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear

Jeremiah 30:3-7 NKJV

For behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘that I will bring back from captivity My people Israel and Judah,’ says the Lord. ‘And I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.’ ” Now these are the words that the Lord spoke concerning Israel and Judah.

“For thus says the Lord:

‘We have heard a voice of trembling,
Of fear, and not of peace.
Ask now, and see,
Whether a man is ever in labor with child?
So why do I see every man with his hands on his loins
Like a woman in labor,
And all faces turned pale?
Alas! For that day is great,
So that none is like it;
And it is the time of Jacob’s trouble,
But he shall be saved out of it.

Joel 3:1-2 NKJV For behold, in those days and at that time,
When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will also gather all nations,
And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat;
And I will enter into judgment with them there
On account of My people, My heritage Israel,
Whom they have scattered among the nations;
They have also divided up My land.

Revelation 20:11-14 NKJV Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

Are we prepared to meet the judgement of God?

Pray with me please.

Dear Lord,

Your great day of judgement will come. Oh, that men would choose You now. You have given Your all for us. It is up to people themselves whether they will accept or reject You. Please take the blinders off of those reading, so that they would have another opportunity to accept You before it is eternally too late. Thank You for Your great love and mercy. You are awesome and we love You so much. May we all be pleasing in your sight through the things we do and say and even the intent of our hearts. May our lives be a living sacrifice. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Five Truths of God’s Judgement

Second set of notes from Derek Prince and his sermon Final Judgement Divided into eight blogs. Some people just like to read and I have found his sermons very helpful in my Christian walk.

  • God’s judgement is based on real facts.

Romans 2:2 NKJV But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things

  • God will render to each according to his deeds.

Romans 2:6 NKJV who “will render to each one according to his deeds”

1 Peter 1:17 NKJV And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear

Revelation 20:12 NKJV And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 

  • God doesn’t think more of any one based on their political, physical or monetary status. Everyone is treated the same.

Romans 2:11 KJV For there is no respect of persons with God.

  • God will judge according to the knowledge of what we do know according to the Bible.

Romans 2:12 NKJV  For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law

  • God will judge our secret thoughts, motives and attitudes.

Romans 2:16 NKJV  In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.

Pray with me please

Father God,

Thank You for Your beauty and holiness. Your very name is holy. Everything about You is perfect. You have given us so many examples of Your attributes in Your holy word. Thank You for being our righteous Judge. Help us to understand that Your Judgement will come. May we be ready is our cry today. Continue to prepare our hearts, minds and our very thoughts. May we be pleasing to You in every single thing we do or say. May even our motives be correct according to Your word. We pray for Your kingdom to come and Your will be done in Jesus’ name. Amen.

I confess that Jesus is Lord (Philippians 2:11)! We are not to believe every spirit, but to try them to see if they are from God. For there are many false prophets. The Bible says this is how we will know: Every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. And is the spirit of the antichrist (1 John 4:1-3).
