S – Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon HIM
while he is near.                Isaiah 55:6

A –  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every
one to his own way; and   the LORD hath laid on HIM the
iniquity of us all.                  Isaiah 53:6

L – Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his
thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and HE will have
mercy upon him.                  Isaiah 55:7

V Verily, verily, I say unto
you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold,
but  climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a
robber.                                  John 10:1

A – And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my
servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the
preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to
the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end
of the earth.   Isaiah 49:6

T – Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine
health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness

rereward.   Isaiah 58:8

saith THE LORD; and I will heal him.               Isaiah 57:19

O – O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had
thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the
waves of the sea: Thy seed also had been as the sand, and
the offspring of thy bowels like the gravel thereof: his
name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before
me.     Isaiah 48:18-19

N – No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of THE LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith THE LORD.  Isaiah 54:17

Feed the Flock of GOD

written by Belinda Magee

Some ministers, some teachers,
Some pastors, some preachers,
Prey on the ignorance of GOD’S human creatures.

GOD’S WORD says to “feed the flock of GOD”,
But instead some of these leaders rob
The way GOD meant it to be
For HIS people to not be taken advantage of, but to see

HIS POWER,
HIS GLORY,
HIS JOY,
HIS AMAZING GRACE,

HIS MERCY,
HIS HEALING,
HIS GREAT LOVE,
All the time and in every place.

THE HOLY SPIRIT we are to receive,
To help us with the enemy that wants only to deceive.
The thief steals, kills, and destroys,
GOD sent JESUS for us to enjoy

Through Worship, and Praise, and Witnessing for HIM, too
Not to be idol worshippers boasting through pride of their just due.

Leaders of GOD should not deceive
But help men, women and children with salvific belief.
To spread THE GOOD NEWS and to see THE GLORY,
So that we can tell this wonderful story
That JESUS died for us and rose with POWER!
And our lives can and will be changed this very hour.

We were all made to be unique in GOD’S handiwork design.  Therefore, all of GOD’S children have work to do in HIS VINEYARD.  There is no need for copycats.  Think for a moment – – How has OUR HEAVENLY FATHER purposed you to witness for HIM and to bring HIM GLORY?

Let’s take a look at some examples by reading through the HOLY BIBLE:

Abel – Jesus called him “righteous” (Matthew 23:35) and he being dead    continues to speak to us about bringing an acceptable offering unto the LORD.(Read also Genesis 4: 1-12 and Hebrews 11:4)

AbrahamGOD changed his name from Abram to Abraham and called by GOD to leave his country and to journey by faith and being obedient, he is known as the ‘father of Faith’ and a ‘friend of GOD’. (Read Galatians 3:6-9 and Hebrews 11:8-19)

Joseph – He suffered at the hands of his brothers and went from the pit to the prison to the palace and he did not yield to temptation of Potiphar’s wife.  (Read Genesis 39:1-23 to Genesis 50:1-26)

Samuel – He was a good prophet who followed GOD’S COMMANDS who also anointed David to be king over Israel after King Saul‘s disobedience and even had influence after his death. (Read 1 Samuel 28:3-19)

Elisha – Elisha was selected to succeed the great prophet, Elijah and Elisha did many powerful works through receiving a”double portion” of Elijah’s spirit. (Read 2 Kings 2:9 – 2 Kings 9:1-37)

Daniel – He had integrity and did not worship idol gods and did not defile himself with the king’s meat & drink and GOD gave him “knowledge and skill in learning and wisdom: and had understanding in all visions and dreams.” (Daniel 1:17)

Shadrach, Meshach, Abed-nego – Three friends associated with Daniel that had integrity also and “GOD gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom:” (Daniel 1:17)   They also did not worship idol gods and knew they would be delivered from King Nebuchadnezzar‘s orders by THE ALMIGHTY GOD and knew that GOD was able to deliver them even if HE did not rescue them.

A Poem about The HOLY BIBLE

A presentation edition of a GOD'S WORD bible

Image via Wikipedia

written by BeLinda Magee

GOD’S INCOMPARABLE WORD, THE HOLY BIBLE
Is definitely not liable,
If we do not understand
Its PRINCIPLES, LAWS, AND COMMANDS.
Of what ALMIGHTY GOD meant
Through HIS SON, JESUS – HE sent
To all mankind –
Men, Women, and Children,
Seeing or Blind

For those that are brave
Or for those that fear
For those that can or cannot hear,

For those that can or cannot talk
For those that can or cannot walk,
No good reasons to be made,
All excuses will have to fade.

By reading THE HOLY BIBLE it can enlighten our understanding,
To give us a smooth and safe landing,
Or to climb a very high altitude
Without being prideful or crude.

In GOD’S WORD (THE HOLY BIBLE) we can soar
Yet be humble to seek GOD for HIS WISDOM and more.
It’s for acquiring faith, comfort, and  GOD’S PEACE,
And conforming to the image of JESUS CHRIST
Unnecessary stress will have to cease.

To obtain knowledge, and wisdom, and learn about HIS unconditional love,
That only comes from OUR HEAVENLY FATHER above.
To learn to give HIM Thanks,
And to learn how not to yield to sin,
And to learn by using GOD’S WORD, this is the way to gain power to win.

Have you received THE HOLY SPIRIT because you believe?
GOD’S SON, JESUS, died and rose again for us to freely receive
THE HOLY SPIRIT who guides us into all truths.
THE HOLY BIBLE reveals infallible proofs.

By reading and studying THE HOLY BIBLE there’s help on all these levels,
And to learn how to love your enemies
And to learn how to resist the devil.

And to learn how to love,
And to learn how to pray,
And to draw nearer to ALMIGHTY GOD,
To know that JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY –
TO SALVATION.

Put Off the old man & Put On THE NEW MAN

Quote

If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in JESUS:
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another.
Be ye angry and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
Neither give place to the devil.
Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
And grieve not the Holy Spirit of GOD, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as GOD for CHRIST’S sake hath forgiven you.       Ephesians 4:21-32
