Walk Through The Bible 365

Healing the sick.
Who Can Pray For The Sick People?
Jesus preached the Gospel that all who confess and believe will be saved. God not only gives us eternal life with God, but also a new self, new identity, new authority and wholeness in us. If you have yet experienced God’s healing in your physical and spiritual life, you just need to ask and believe, and the Lord will let you experience His healing power. For Jesus said these signs will accompany those who believe.
Prayer: Father God, thank you for not only healing us, but making us whole in your image. Thank you for your power of the Holy Spirit and authority given to us. We pray that our daily walk with you will make us more like you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted. And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him. But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you. And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid. Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils. And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not. After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country. And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them. Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
Mark 16:1‭-‬20 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mrk.16.1-20.KJV

My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off. They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long. But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth. Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs. For in thee, O Lord , do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God. For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me. For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me. For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin. But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied. They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is. Forsake me not, O Lord : O my God, be not far from me. Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.

Seeds of Spring: A Woman’s 40 Day Devotional

Day 17
Planting and Tending Your Garden
SEED OF TRUTH
Read Ephesians 3:14-21.
As you look at this passage, what is Paul praying for us? When you see what he is praying for the church, I want you to consider the thought that Christ is praying these same things for you. Look at His desire for you and consider that today. Our God is passionate about His glory. We see this in verses 20-21.
PLANT THE SEED
Quietly recite today’s focus verse to yourself. Hide it in your heart and meditate on it throughout the day.
Ephesians 3:16
“That according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being.”
WATER THE SEED
As people who have come to faith in Jesus Christ, as people who know He laid down His life for our sins and that we have given Him our sinful life in return – we have to remind ourselves we are in a daily battle between our human desires, or our flesh, and the Holy Spirit of God that now dwells in us as a believer in Christ. We often forget this and feel overcome by our cravings and impulses. Think through this past week. Think of a moment that your flesh had you in its grip. Now think of it in light of the truth that you have the power of the Spirit of God within you. Ask the Lord to help you remember and, by faith, to walk in the truth of His power. Jesus Christ does dwell in you. Believe this by faith. God will see His power overcome your weakness. Praise be to God. As you walk forward by faith, His power will be displayed and you will bear a harvest of His righteousness. “Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).
“O Lord, may I be strengthened with power through His spirit in my inner being, so that Christ will dwell in my heart fully, through faith! Help me grow in faith.”
BEAR THE FRUIT
Strengthened with power through His Spirit in me.
CLOSE IN PRAYER
Ask the Lord to bring to life all that has been planted in your heart today.

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lordʼs holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Learning

Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Matthew 11:29 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.11.29.KJV

Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:
2 Peter 1:1 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/2pe.1.1.KJV

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
2 Peter 1:2‭-‬3 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/2pe.1.2-3.KJV

And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:5‭-‬8 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/2pe.1.5-8.KJV

As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
2 Peter 3:16 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/2pe.3.16.KJV

Faith Without Works Is Dead

Action-Oriented FAITH

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
James 2:14‭-‬17 NIV
https://bible.com/bible/111/jas.2.14-17.NIV

Revolving the tension between the role of faith and works is a big part of spiritual formation for the believer. Paul made it clear that our works cannot save us, so that no one can ever boast that he or she earned salvation ( Ephesians 2:8-10). On the other hand, James said that if that faith is not accompanied by God- honoring, fruit- bearing actions, that faith might as well not even exist. That kind of ” faith” is not the faith in Jesus that leads to salvation but simply a comfortable, cognitive belief that, in the end, accomplishes nothing for the one who holds it. It’s the kind of ” faith” that resembles the real thing but has no staying power. When suffering comes, this ” faith” often evaporates quickly.

FAITH that leads to salvation is like a two-sided coin. On one side is genuine repentance, where the penitent sinner comes to God, acknowledging his or her sin, hoping for mercy; the other side of the coin is faith, the belief that God is able and willing to save the broken- hearted sinner through the atoning work of Christ on the cross.

Faith In The Way Of The Lord

You come faithfully from your land unto another, bring with you your new FAITH in one one true GOD. And she said, Behold, thy sister in law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister in law. And Ruth said, Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me. When she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, then she left speaking unto her.
Ruth 1:15‭-‬18 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/rut.1.15-18.KJV Ruth once had many God’s now have chosen the one true as GOD.

There are many blessings given by GOD for those who are faithful.

And Boaz answered and said unto her, It hath fully been shewed me, all that thou hast done unto thy mother in law since the death of thine husband: and how thou hast left thy father and thy mother, and the land of thy nativity, and art come unto a people which thou knewest not heretofore. The Lord recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.
Ruth 2:11‭-‬12 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/rut.2.11-12.KJV

And Naomi said unto her daughter in law, Blessed be he of the Lord , who hath not left off his kindness to the living and to the dead. And Naomi said unto her, The man is near of kin unto us, one of our next kinsmen.
Ruth 2:20 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/rut.2.20.KJV

One woman’s FAITH has seen what GOD gives in return.

Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I purchased to be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place: ye are witnesses this day. And all the people that were in the gate, and the elders, said, We are witnesses. The Lord make the woman that is come into thine house like Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel: and do thou worthily in Ephratah, and be famous in Beth–lehem: And let thy house be like the house of Pharez, whom Tamar bare unto Judah, of the seed which the Lord shall give thee of this young woman. So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife: and when he went in unto her, the Lord gave her conception, and she bare a son. And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed be the Lord , which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel. And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him. And Naomi took the child, and laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it. And the women her neighbours gave it a name, saying, There is a son born to Naomi; and they called his name Obed: he is the father of Jesse, the father of David. Now these are the generations of Pharez: Pharez begat Hezron, And Hezron begat Ram, and Ram begat Amminadab, And Amminadab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon, And Salmon begat Boaz, and Boaz begat Obed, And Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David.

My Help Cometh From The Lord


I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord , which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
Psalms 121:1‭-‬8 KJV

ISIS would have you believe they speak God’s word

​If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.  Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

James 1:26‭-‬27 KJV

http://bible.com/1/jas.1.26-27.KJV
“Isis say they speak for all Muslims”, but they don’t. The first people kill by Isis was Muslims. I’ve  listen to my pastor and others who say Islam is an evil religion, however the same can be said about Christianity or Judaism. One thing I have notice is simply this, you have a few thousand miss guided people who are angry with there own lives, that they have convince themselves that all the problems that they are experiencing are the fault of the United States. Instead of looking to God who knows all and see all, they want to destroy all that is right with the world. They manage to high jack a religious faith while those who practice this religion do not fight back. 

I’m trying to understand how you can have 1.6 billion people practice Islamic faith as well as 2.3 billion Christians faith and 4.5 million Judaism faith, and between all of our religions  we are having one heck of a time trying to rid ourselves of a few thousand who has terrorized the entire world. Exactly what part have I missed? 

There is something I have notice though 1933 the rise of Hitler, people believed his garbage and he caused WWII. Is Isis trying to do the same? I was reading Revelation today and God was speaking to me, none of it good.  

Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.  Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.  John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;  And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,  And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Revelation 1:2‭-‬6 KJV

http://bible.com/1/rev.1.2-6.KJV

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.   I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.  I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,  Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.  And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;  And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.  His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;  And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.  And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.  And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:   I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.   Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;   The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.

Revelation 1:7‭-‬20 KJV

http://bible.com/1/rev.1.7-20.KJV

My Lord and Savior tells me hell on earth has come but it will get worse as he has told it so long ago. Heed my words children of God get right now, the time is at hand. 

Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.   But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.   Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
