Because of Him and Unto Him,
Return, O backsliding children,” says the LORD; “for I am married to you." ~Jeremiah 3:14
For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. ~II Peter 2:21I've lived through it twice. My husband backslid many years ago. It was a long haul praying him back into the Kingdom. And my oldest son has left his first Love. Like father like son?

But if anyone has this world’s goods (resources for sustaining life) and sees his brother fellow Believer in need, yet closes his heart of compassion against him, how can the love of God live and remain in him?We officially lauched last week and we are out and about purchasing the non-essentials. Starting with members in our own church who have needs, we will iron out the kinks before we stock the van and head to the streets. There are still so many needs from Hurricane Sandy here on Long Island and so many homeless shelters. From that alone we have a wide field open to us.
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your GOD, He is the One Who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you. ~Deuteronomy 31:6
For He, Himself, has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." ~Hebrews 13:5bThis video clip is a great visual reminder that in every place, and in every situation, Jesus is always present, because He is Immanuel, God With Us. We are never, ever alone. No matter what it looks like or feels like, the Truth is we are not forsaken.
May this video be a source of encouragement
or strength to you today!
And he shall speak great words against The Most High, and shall wear out the saints of The Most High... ~ Daniel 7:25"Wear out the saints of The Most High" - Saints: that's us!
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. ~ Hosea 4:6We have to know the source that causes our minds to become battlefields. We must give credit where credit is due. They are not our own thoughts. How do I know that?
Father, in the All-powerful Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, I ask you to energize any of Your children who are being worn down at this very moment. Please bring clarity to their minds. Cause them, oh GOD, to understand the schemes of Your enemy, and that his aim is to steal our faith and hope in You because he hates You and Your goodness so.
We stand together, Father, as one family, lifting each other up when we are so weary we think we will collapse. Thank You for holding onto us. Thank You for being True to Your Words. We magnify You, Most High GOD, above our thoughts, above our battles. We love You and thank You, for Your deliverance is at hand! Amen.Because of Him and Unto Him,

Therefore, God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the Name which is above every name, that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in Heaven, and of those on Earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God, The Father. ~Phil. 2:9-11Young Christians in our society do not know anything about the authority of a lord.

For I Am The LORD; I do not change. ~Malachi 3:6
Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times. ~Isaiah 33:6And His Wisdom and knowledge (from His Word) will provide stability within our souls no matter how unstable our circumstances may be at the moment.
Expect an encounter with God in your trials and as you encounter Him, surrender. ~ June CroonOur God tells us that faith without works is dead (James 2:14).
There is no pit so deep, that God's LOVE is not deeper still. ~ Corrie ten BoomHow did Corrie learn that? By being thrown into a pit of human degradation, violence, and torture beyond human comprehension. Coming out of her pit of hell, she allowed God's LOVE to flow through her. Her message of LOVE is one that should never die because it is God's message of LOVE.
My Bible is a "red-lettered" edition, which means that the Words of Jesus Christ are in red type. And of course, since Jesus' recorded Words are only found in the New Testament, the Old Testament is black lettered.
Over the years I've wondered why all The Words of God - in the Old and the New - weren't printed in red. After all, Jesus IS God, right? The Father and Jesus are ONE. Are they not?
"Hhmm", my heart would ponder...
Every now and again I would google, searching to see if there was a red-lettered Old and New Testament Bible. Surely there must be!
A couple of weeks ago I read something. Somewhere. And again it sparked my investigative search. Usually I would search through page one, and maybe two, of the Google listings, and that would be it. This time, I went further.
And guess what I found?
A King James Version Modern Version with ALL the Words of God in red. Old Testament and New. I was beside myself with glee.
Of course, I purchased it.
As I carefully opened God's Holy Word, I ran my fingers over the untouched-by-man Word of God. I felt honored to now own such a Bible. I opened to Genesis. As my eyes beheld, "Let there be light", I think my heart skipped a beat and I almost cried.
Yes, ALL of God's Holy Words are in red!
I've read my Bible cover to cover only twice in my almost 30 years. Shame on me. But, now it is time to do it again. In my new Bible.
As I take in all my Heavenly Father's Words in red, I know I will glean Wisdom and Understanding from His Truths.
Truths spoken, then recorded for me.
My mind will be renewed and my heart transformed.
Thank You, my Father for this precious, precious gift! Word of God speak, for Your Servant shall hear.
