Thorns Have Come Up In The Court Of The Holy Place, Where The Scorpion Makes Her Nest-And A Prophecy This Day- July 22 2014

This message title comes from Meyers devotion, it stood out to me. The message I have. Last night, me and my wife were praying, as we were praying I started to weep for the Church, all the thoughts at how far fallen it has become, false doctrine, and Christians in general, tears flowed as I lit. felt the Holy Spirit weeping through me, lamenting through me . Like rivers of water as I had mental images of the Church and the body of Christ. The word of the lord spoke clearly, it was basically, the church has fallen,Christians are fallen, Judgment stands at the door.

I have been on a series of speaking comfort and peace. Understand, we were, and are, still in perfect peace, but for that moment in time, it was as if could see the whole church, the whole body of Christ and its condition. Great weeping and anguish of soul came over me. This is part of the prophetic-watchmen burden. Like Jer. The weeping prophet, I prophetically, in Spirit wept. Reading this devotion today, is yet another confirmation of what I saw, felt, experienced.

The verses that came to mind were the following;

Heb 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Heb 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Heb 12:3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

The action to be taken to this, same chapter;

Heb 12:12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;

Heb 12:13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.

Heb 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

The lord says this,

I am the loving lord, full of compassion, mercy, loving kindness, I love, I loved, and love the world. I weep as I did over Jerusalem before her destruction, I did not want this for my people, I did not will this to be, free choice of humanity and the enemy has made this so. I weep. There are things in my Holy Temple, you my people, that should not be there, deadness, ritual, giving up, running from me, you should be running to me, I will embrace every prodigal. I change not. Things are out of joint in my body, it must be healed, the path of self, sin, distraction, must be taken out of the way. Behold I stand at the door, I knock, and I knock, and I weep as I knock, because so few are inviting me in. Return to your first love. The joy, the song is quiet, a silence has filled the land. Man’s hearts are failing them for fear, so many of my beloved has left me. I know those who are mine, and to you, fear not, fear nothing, fear no man, for hard times are on you, they will increase, events will continue to escalate, it will not return back to normal as many hope. All is about to change. In this storm that is on you, praise me in it, lift up your hands, and get your joy and song of praise back, in this you will find strength for your journey, your path, my will.”

This is the word of the lord

This holy place is us, the temple of the Holy Spirit, it has thorns, scorpions, it is in neglect, it has a large breach. The joy of gladness, mirth has been silenced, again man has hung his harp on a tree. It does not have to be this way, we still have a short window, we all must get on our face before the lord, make Him first again. Scorpions and snakes should not be in the Temple, they should be under our feet, but for so many, they lost authority, due to neglecting, maintaining the Holy.

While in prayer, while the lord was giving me this mental movie, I saw a coke can, a foot was stomping it, to crush it, flatten it. The lord said,

This is my body, it is being crushed ready to be recycled, but I am the lord of full restoration, restoration better than what it was”.

The can became uncrushable back to normal, but better, a different steal substance, and it could not be crushed under foot, it was not off the recyclable heap, but made fully restored.

Restoration in the bible means, to be repaired and made back into a new, fully new thing, better than normal restoration of an old car, or furniture, it means to made new, better than it was at first.

This is the will of the lord for you reader, 100% full restoration, repent and see all things become new, a new day , the day star arises, and you will shine for Jesus again, in Peace, Joy and Hope. Take this word, think on it, examine your heart, for all is about to change beloved. Why not change yourself in the lords power today, before these coming things? Think on this word.

Now read Meyers Devotion. Meditate on that, it has many things I did not touch on, in it there are many things, said in different ways, it will, a portion, will speak different to many as they read and meditate on it.

SURRENDER LEADING TO SONG
"And when the burnt offering began, the song of the Lord began also with the trumpets, and with the instruments ordained by David king of Israel."-- 2Ch_29:27.

THE HEBREW Psalmody became famous throughout the world. Even their fierce conquerors recognized the sublime beauty of the Hebrew temple music. By the waters of Babylon they urged them to sing one of the Songs of Zion, not knowing how impossible it was for the captives to sing the Lord's song in a strange land! For sixteen years no song had poured forth from the sacred shrine. Ahaz had shut the doors, dispersed the Levites, and allowed the holy fabric to remain unkempt, unlit, and unused. There were no sacrifices on the Altar, no sweet incense in the Holy Place, no blood on the Mercy-Seat, no Song of the Lord!

For too many Christians this, alas, is a picture of their life. The soul, intended to be a holy temple for God, shows signs of disorder and neglect. The lights are not lit, the sweet incense of prayer does not ascend, the doors of entrance to fellowship and exit to service are closed. Outwardly the ordinances of the religious life are preserved, but inwardly silence and darkness prevail, into which bat-like thoughts intrude. Thorns have come up in the court of the Holy Place, where the scorpion makes her nest. The Song of the Lord had died out of heart and life.

Why should not this miserable condition be ended to-day? Why should you not be cleansed from the traces of sin and neglect through the Blood of the Cross? Why should you not come back into fellowship with God, who waits to receive and forgive? Surrender yourself to Him now. Do not be general, but specific in your consecration. Weld yourself to some life or lives that sorely need help. Give not words only, but deeds and blood. Merge your little life in the life of Christ, as the streamlet in the wide ocean. And as you yield yourself to Christ first, and next to all who need you for His sake, you will find the Song of the Lord breaking forth again in your heart like a spring, which was formerly choked with debris.

PRAYER
We pray Thee, Heavenly Father, to cleanse the thoughts of our hearts, by the inspiration of Thy Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love Thee, and worthily magnify Thy Holy Name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.

Up Date On Someone Using My name In Emails , Found More Information

My son just got an email, it said my name. The email said, I danny abaldo am in the military and stuck in the Philippines, and need 2,000 cash help. Ok, now this is what happened.

This is not normal, people can hack your contact list in your email contacts and cause a worm- virus,  you open it and a virus you have. It just happened to me in my live email account. My Main PC is down, I know IT work, I have done all I know to do. My Pc is running at 100%=a virus.

The email that was hacked dmabaldo@yahoo.com

My contact list was not only hacked, the norm, but all my contacts are gone, this is a new thing. Someone took all the contacts, wild. We live in a hacking generation. This is why the new Internet 3, is coming, all this is being allowed, or done by TPTB, to make people embrace this new, safe Internet, the problem with this new Internet is, you will not be able to acces any alternative media sites, Christian sites, like this one, many, many sites, mostly Christians, survival , end time, investigative news site, all gone , say good by to twitter, face book, all gone. This is the plan. I have been reading all the info on this, it is coming, and it is what I warn about often. Freedom of the Internet will be gone very soon. 

It has been planned, it will be a corporate web, only access news they want you to hear, wal-mart, amazon and corporations, Big brother, to the max, no one will know what is really going on, it will all be controlled, this is communism. It is coming very fast watch. The lord is allowing it , it is the part of the Judgments on America and other nations.

Now, I was thinking, I do not use dmabaldo @yahoo almost never use my yahoo mail. The new donations by email, will no be effected as the email does not have the money it, goes right into pay pal, I get a notice saying a donation came in. A sister helped this month PTL, thank-you sister. So that is safe, anyone in my contact list, is getting, I am in the military and need 2,000 dollars of help.
I do not think many on this site are in my contact list. Old contacts. If you get an email saying It is Danny Abaldo, do not open it on yahoo.

My PC as said is crashed, my truthand mercyministries@live contact contacts have been hacked , I have had people I know from long ago email me and I opened it, and hello virus.

It is odd each email I am being told of coming in my name, from Yahoo mail, says I am in the military, that alone is odd, Military, Hmmmm. TPTB hands down give away, I even think I know who did it, but will not make public. A military person.

So, that is the update, all contacts gone, and PC dead. A clean install is all I can do, but I must put all my current stuff on an external hard drive, my son has a large one, will do a back up, scan back up, first so once I re install my stuff it  is not a virus again.

A pain no doubt.

Peoples accounts are being hacked, E-Bays accounts were hacked, banks, you name it, cyber warfare is on, problem, reaction, solution, and good-bye Internet, thus as said, you will not be able to access sites like this one very son with the new Internet.

Let us do all we can, say what we have to say, download what we need now and put it on an external thumb drive, external hard drive. They have cheap thumb drives that are 32 even 64 GB, wow and small,get one, put books things you need on it now, as soon you will only have those.
No one will know what the current word of the lord is, Prophetic warnings, sermons, survival sites , books, all gone,and as said, twitter, Face book, all social media sites will be down, so no one can communicate, so it will be back to snail mail.

The problem with snail mail, if you did not know this you will know.The USPS will soon be no longer , did you know that, many branches have only limited delivery now, others closed. I read the law on this, it passed, so snail mail soon will not be possible as well, there will be no USPS, look it up, do the research, I found it easy, so can you. Not a conspiracy. The first I heard of it, the USPS being bankrupt was on yahoo news, now you must search, this is a truth.

When stuff hits the fan, none of us will be able to communicate with each other.
Cell phones? gone, watch I read the plan it is on us, happening now.

Yes Big brother has come, he is making his moves, and cyber warfare, a black out, banks being hacked etc. the plan watch this is how it will all go down, not prophecy , just research. Watch, and it will be as prophesied. Some of this came by prophecy Jan 2014 and mid 2013, and I later read of it.

Pretext to WW3, a proxy war with China, not Russia, that is the current distraction. Than ww3 with China, some time in all this is when we will see the Internet go, cell phones an no USPS snail mail. The word of the lord said that part, and how it would unfold, so far the Prophecy's are spot on by the lord and to his glory.

Take these warnings serious beloved, listen know where everyone you now is right now, get addresses, if you live near by them, have a place all know to meet at when something happens, this is a must for preparation.

To our beloved ones, our family in N.E. we simply will never see them again, unless we see them in Glory.

This is not a fear thing, the message below is 100% contrasted to that. I am not a fear monger, I always warn, but say do not fear. This is a critical up date message and shows it is coming.

I have talked to people in other countries Esp. Africa, due to the school, right now, all are having a hard time with the Internet, no access, power outages and other countries same thing right now.
It will be full blown in the West very soon, and it has already started.

Example:

Have you noticed certain websites you visited often, your having a hard time connecting to them? I have , I see it more every day, I guess it matters what sites your going to, me mostly excellent alternative news sites, can not connect to one, the best. Other sites load real slow.

This is called bottle necking the band width, the bandwidth is fine and fast, un- clogged , try going to a major on-line store no problem, no bottle necking, no bandwidth damn stopping data flow, now go to certain sites and see how long it takes to load and if you can even connect?

I rest my case.

It matters what websites you go to, I will not give a list of sites to prove my point, as it is not for the world wide web to know amen.

Do virus checks, be careful opening emails, and no I have not joined the military, the army of the lord yes, but no I am not in the military and need 2K to get home.

Different emails, one said middle East, my sons said Philippines wow I am all over.


By the way, if your getting out of the military, they provide transportation good lord man. LOL.

Prudent, wise, action, a plan NOW.

We Are More Than Conquerors, In Life And In Spiritual Battle-Not Flesh, Spirit-Note This Is a Long Message Stay With It.


This is a 7 page message, Please stay with it, a foundation is laid and near the end the message, I ask all to read it all,but the message kicks in at the end portion. It is a powerful word of Victory.

Rom 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.


2Co 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

2Co 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

2Co 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;


Greek word for-we are more than conquerors..

G5245
ὑπερνικάω
hupernikaō
hoop-er-nik-ah'-o
From G5228 and G3528; to vanquish beyond, that is, gain a decisive victory: - more than conquer.


G3528
νικάω
nikaō
nik-ah'-o
From G3529; to subdue (literally or figuratively): - conquer, overcome, prevail, get the victory.


G3529
νίκη
nikē
nee'-kay
Apparently a primary word; conquest (abstractly), that is, (figuratively) the means of success: - victory.

The key to this message is spirit, not flesh and being, living in Victory.

2Co 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

First what is the holy Spirit through Paul saying,? We walk in the flesh, but we do not war in the flesh?

The word teaches us we are to walk in the spirit, in this we read we walk in the flesh, so lets look at this first to lay the foundation of what seems to be a bible contradiction. Let me prove , it is not.

First to show it is not a contradiction it can be shown in the GREEK wording.

G4043
περιπατέω
peripateō
per-ee-pat-eh'-o
From G4012 and G3961; to tread all around, that is, walk at large (especially as proof of ability); figuratively to live, deport oneself, follow (as a companion or votary): - go, be occupied with, walk (about).

From -

G3961
πατέω
pateō
pat-eh'-o
From a derivative probably of G3817 (meaning a “path”); to trample (literally or figuratively): - tread (down, under foot).

This is where in English we get the simple word path.

JFB:

2 Corinthians 10:3

For — Reason why they should regard him “beseeching” them (2Co_10:2) not to oblige him to have recourse to “bold” and stern exercise of authority. “We walk IN the flesh,” and so in weakness: but not “ACCORDING TO the flesh” (2Co_10:2). Moreover, though we WALK in it, we do not WAR according to it. A double contrast or antithesis. “They who accuse us of walking after the flesh, shall find [to their cost] that we do not war after the flesh; therefore compel us not to use our weapons” [Alford].

GIll:

2 Corinthians 10:3
For though we walk in the flesh,.... The apostle removes the calumny of walking after the flesh, by owning that they were in the flesh, in the body, in a state of imperfection, attended with many weaknesses and infirmities, and surrounded with a variety of afflictions and sorrows; in this sense they were, and lived and walked in the flesh; but then he denies the charge exhibited against them.

we do not war after the flesh: every Christian's life is a warfare with Satan, and his principalities and powers, with the world, the men and lusts of it, and with the corruptions of their own hearts; and much more is the life of a minister of the Gospel, who is called forth to meet the adversary in the gate; to stand in the hottest place of the battle, and sustain the whole fire and artillery of the enemy; to fight the good fight of faith, endure hardness as a good soldier of Christ, and with the weapons he is furnished with to war a good warfare: which is not done "after the flesh"; in such a manner as the men of the world wage war with one another; or upon carnal principles; or with carnal selfish views; or in a weak way and manner; but in a spiritual way, with all simplicity and disinterested views, with great courage and intrepidity of mind.

CEV version simple it reads of this verse;

2Co 10:3 We live in this world, but we don't act like its people

Gal 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

What do we do with this? Note: I am working a new FREE E-Book, it is called, " The Peoples Guide To Bible Difficulties" It deals with many example where it seems the bible contradicts itself. It is needed. We must know what we believe and how to explain for self and other bible contradictions, so I am doing this message like I doing the book.

There are no contradictions in the word, we find out by.


1. Proper bible reading in Context-Reading verse before and after, or a chapter before and after, Context, this is using the bible as a commentary.

2. Using the original bible language like Greek and Hebrew. This I have found is how you can 80% of the time explain what seem to be contradictions. The English translations are poor, all of them, looking at the Greek and Hebrew we easily find the answer, wrong translation of a word or phrase.

3. Good bible helps, a must have and use is the O.T. and N.T. bible lexicon- Interlinear bible, and a Strong's, Thayer's, BDB, all aside from an interlinear bible is all in e-sword. Its for the people , meaning simple. You need not learn how to read Greek and Hebrew , use simple bible helps, a Strong's, Vine's, Vincent's, interlinear etc, look up Greek word, but Strong's gives every definition, other helps tell you, like in a Vines, what word out of the many in Strong's and others , what word out of all those is the correct definition in the verse, word study. Reader , pray for me and be looking for this soon to be posted Free needed E- book. Bible contradictions.

Now back to our message, I am going somewhere with this, the message is coming, I am laying the ground work in proper exposition first, it bores some, they just want the message, sorry, It is the way I love to give a word, the foundation, any problems and contradictions, and the message.

A must have book for every one reading this is. Paul E. Little's classic " Know what you believe". Explains all doctrine and things in an easy manner, far different than the 3 volume set of text books , a bible school classic , Systematic theology- by Hodges, however; guess what? I found all 3 volumes free. On the website, CBD, they have it for 20.00 , I found them leagle, and free from a university, and will be used and sent to students in the school. I will give the links in the e-book coming out, where to get more reading marital and quality free text books.

The contradiction we are dealing with is explained in number 2, I gave, using Greek and Hebrew. Different Greek word, different meaning, no contradiction amen.

Greek for Walk in the verse is;

G4748
στοιχέω
stoicheō
stoy-kheh'-o
From a derivative of στείχω steichō̄ (to range in regular line); to march in (military) rank (keep step), that is, (figuratively) to conform to virtue and piety: - walk (orderly).

The word usage in this , walk in piety and in an orderly manner. The text above , the message in Greek means, the walk of life being a human being. It is very different. Life in general, the world and flesh in general verses the Spiritual walk, and that is the message, the key to victory.

Guess what? In the same chapter in Gal. Ch 5 the word walk is used two times, and in the single chapter the word Walk has a different Greek word, you see what I am saying about using the Greek, Hebrew, bible helps, in one chapter same English word, two different words in Greek.

Gal 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

Walk in this verses is:

G4043
περιπατέω
peripateō
per-ee-pat-eh'-o
From G4012 and G3961; to tread all around, that is, walk at large (especially as proof of ability); figuratively to live, deport oneself, follow (as a companion or votary): - go, be occupied with, walk (about).


The same Greek word we used and see in our text where we get the word Path from, now it looks like a serious contradiction, now what. Number 1. as stated above, reading in context and bible helps explains it all. It is such matters that are being dealt with in the coming free E-Book. I will not continue in this, giving the ground work, and example of what you will see, read, learn in the coming book.

Now The message; Reader, I hope you made it this far, because now comes the meat, the message on Victory and Spiritual Warfare.

Rom 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.


2Co 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

2Co 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

2Co 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;


Greek word for-we are more than conquerors..

G5245
ὑπερνικάω
hupernikaō
hoop-er-nik-ah'-o
From G5228 and G3528; to vanquish beyond, that is, gain a decisive victory: - more than conquer.


G3528
νικάω
nikaō
nik-ah'-o
From G3529; to subdue (literally or figuratively): - conquer, overcome, prevail, get the victory.


G3529
νίκη
nikē
nee'-kay
Apparently a primary word; conquest (abstractly), that is, (figuratively) the means of success: - victory.

I am repeating the opening portion, so you can follow along and have it in front of your eyes and not scroll around.

The Key Greek word meanings are:

Gain a decisive victory:

Prevail, get the victory.

Conquest (abstractly), that is, (figuratively) the means of success: - victory.

All three Greek words for this short phrase is VICTORY. Saint of the lord, you can have victory in any and all things. The Holy Spirit, by the lord, with Spiritual weapons, not war weapons like Guns, etc. We live in a different world, and the same world everyone does, we are not of this world, but in it, others are of this world and in it.

They use human battle to gain victory, we use supernatural things , unseen things , powerful things to have 100% victory. Pulling down strong holds. That is a powerful message, pulling down strong holds, spiritual battle against forces of evil, and self, the biggest war is with in, in this message it is on Spiritual warfare with evil, not so much the battle-with in.

People are letting evil ruin them, put them in fear, worry, they are living defeated life’s, we are to live in victory over evil.

It is spiritual battle. Not deliverance doctrine, remember the sermon I shot long ago in the desert," Is your name known by demons". In it the message explains it all I will attache at the end, give the link to that short sermon in the Desert, if you have not watched this short message I encourage you to do so.

You beloved, can pull down any strong hold, in Jesus name, by the power of the Holy Spirit, so why are so many living in fear, defeat, confusion, and such. Peter said, “We have been given all things that pertain to life and godliness”. We are given the tools, the weapon of prayer, the bible, and our spiritual Armour, and the Spirits power, we have all we need, the word says it. All we need to live in Peace, Joy, Victory, so why are so many not living this Christian life style.

Look I know about trials , tribulations, hardship, poverty, need, warfare, it is my daily lot, but if you use these tools I can give you a personal witness...they work. You can have Peace and Joy, living in victory no matter how bad the storm is, you can have it today.

Many are still trying to work things out, make plans , do things by the human flesh this will not work. In these days it is all by the word of the lord, the small still voice, the supernatural becoming natural. In these days living in the supernatural, not of this world mind set, should be so common place now it is only natural..

I hope your getting this reader. If you walk in the Spirit, war in the Spirit, pray and worship in Spirit, you can see, taste, experience the real deal, not a false out pouring but the real deal. That is supernatural, not based on an experience, it is a daily walk. It , in time, will be, should be, natural. The supernatural becoming natural, we will walk in Peace, Joy,. Victory, while many around us are freaking out. We can , and should reach out to such ones in that supernatural that is now natural, and minister in Spirit, death to our flesh, it never works.

The last verse says even more:

2Co 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Casting down imaginations, meaning evil, traps, tricks, devices. Not only that, we are given power to bring all this evil into captivity, every evil thought, device, plan, scheme, the Devil has, take captive and given to Christ. To the obedience of Christ, wow, that is a holy cow verse. Taking all this captive, and we are not to be the captives, we are free, we make prisons of our own making, but we have been set free by Christ, given authority to take captive all these things, including your own wrong thoughts, and those of other humans that are evil, and spiritual evil, they are CAPTIVE, - us-FREE.

Reader, today, understand you have spiritual authority to cast down, pull down, any and all spiritual strong holds using the spiritual weapons, you will have victory , you will walk in peace, you will have joy, even in the trial and storm of your life. I know, and it works.

Video Sermon July 17 2014 Time Bandits-Dr. Danny Abaldo

In this message you will hear the essential of not letting anyone steal your time, or steal the true prophetic TIME line. Many say we are in the tribulation, wrong TIME, we are in the birth pains. Est ch 4 For such a time as this
Eph 6 Redeem the time wisely for the days are evil.
Time, what do we do with it, a call to see what Time is in Hebrew and Greek, we must take back time from the time Bandits. Take a listen, encouragement to the bride of Christ.
Sorry lighting odd, poor lighting shot inside at night, message loud and clear. Well worth a watch, a powerful message.
I also speak of the Gospel Diamond, time bandits want to steal your Gospel diamond.




The One Thing That Makes A Christian Shine Is Humility

Mat 18:1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

Mat 18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

Mat 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Mat 18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Meyer:

Removing Stumbling-Blocks

Mat_18:1-9

Our Lord’s transfiguration suggested that the time to take up His Kingdom was near; and the Apostles began to arrange their plans. The Master therefore used a child for His text and preached a sermon on humility. We must not be childish, but childlike. See 1Co_13:11. The beauty of a little child is its unconsciousness, humility, simplicity, and faith. Christ’s kingdom abounds with the rare blending of the warrior and the child. See 2Ki_5:14. God’s best gifts are placed, not on a high shelf for us to reach up to, but on a low one to which we must stoop.

An offense is anything that makes the path of a holy and useful life more difficult for others. Be sure, in all your actions, to consider the weaker ones who are watching and following you. “Father,” said a boy, “take the safe path; I am coming.” A man, whose arm was caught in a machine, saved his boy from being drawn in by severing the arm with a hatchet. All that hurts us or others, however precious, must be severed.

I love that, we must not be childless, but child like. This is the message. We are not simpletons, we have the mind of Christ, we have revelation, the presence of the lord, wisdom, study, no we are meek, but as the word says, be wise as serpents, and, or, meek as doves, yes the children of the lord are to be prudent, wise, seek wisdom in Godly fear.

PRIDE, is the dreaded thing that caused Lucifer’s fall, it comes before a persons fall, Pride cometh before the fall. The lord hates pride, he will not allow it in us. If any one reading this thinks they are something, take heed, lest ye fall. We are not worms, but we are wise as serpents, we are to be bold as lions, warfare in spirit, is for the training of men and women to mature. Humility is the mark of the Christ in us, the risen savior.

Godly fear, holy trembling, holiness are the same, we must be in reverence and awe of the lord, not in fear of lighting boltz, if we are truly his. Humble, gentle, loving, but bold, but if we are not humble we are done, and if we are not like a child in trusting faith we are also done.

I am deeply moved by humble people, so much Pride in America and the world, pride, sticking pride, it is smoke in the lords nostrils. We are to be in humbleness, so many I see are not, preachers, teachers, those in leadership, are anything but humble, I am not talking dumbed down, we are to seek wisdom, but we will be growing until death. Not one of us will ever be able to say, " I have arrived"

Paul's thorn in the flesh was to keep him from being puffed up, it was kept for humility, the word is clear about this. Got a thorn? It may be the thing that will keep you humble until you see the lord face to face, the thorns are needed, esp. for ones who have many gifts, talents, abilities, revelations true, not false, insight, it is a people who are in most need of the thorn, the rose has a thorn it is a symbol of the lord, the fragrance, beauty and blood, it is only because of the blood of Jesus we are his, and we had nothing to do with it.

While every good and perfect gift is Good and from a Good loving God, we must understand esp. those that are leaders, teachers, we fall under the greater condemnation, meaning judgment, accountability, yet many want rose peddles tossed to the floor as they walk by, in the heart they seek praise from man, they want to be greeted in the market place as Pastor, reverend, Evangelist, Etc. Pharisees, they are still in the Church and behind many pulpits and it stinks. It can be seen , it is easy to tell a tree by it's fruit, and the fruit is one that is full of patience, love, kindness, humility and such, if you are fallen your fragrance is gone, your blood covering is gone, but it can be changed in Humble prayer today.

I think one has to face many things to be made ready, it takes more than a bible degree, it takes the school of Christ, it takes being in his image, not ours, not mans, the ten year plan man, I call ministers who are in it for a vocation, a pay check, with no compassion, no grace, no humility.

They will face a holy God one day and than they will be undone, the horror will hit, look be like the child, understand the father heart of the lord, full of mercy, compassion, but if you have pride know this, soon your house of cards will fall, as pride cometh before the fall, but what will be your end? what will be your case at the judgment seat, toys, things, what? humility, child like faith, that will be the greatest in heaven. amen.

You may not be called to stand behind a pulpit, but do you carry a soap box? By that I mean the kind of person that is always right, no matter what you say, you can give link after link, document after document, 100 proofs, but they laugh and in pride, for that is what it is, only they are right, all the time. You probably know a few folks like that, it drives me crazy, and you as well. It is like, 'wow, what does it take for this person to just admit, they are wrong”?

Ones who are never wrong, are ones in pride, it speaks very loud, the know it all. This is not humility, also they are marked with a large dose of no compassion on anyone. Know anyone like that? This is what I mean, I love humble people, it is a joy to be around a humble person, is it not?

Think on this

The Call, Your Giftings, The Way Planned For You-Will Come To Pass-Your Day Is Coming

Jer 32:19 Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:

K&D:

Jeremiah 32:19

God shows His greatness and might in the wisdom with which He regards the doings of men, and in the power with which He executes His decrees, so as to recompense to every one according to his deeds. On 19a cf. Isa_28:29; Psa_66:5. "To give to every one," etc., is repeated, word for word, from Jer_17:10.

Jer 32:27 Behold, I am Jehovah, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?

Henry:

Note, Prayer is a salve for every sore. Whatever is a burden to us, we may by prayer cast it upon the Lord and then be easy.

Note, When at any time we are perplexed about the particular methods and dispensations of Providence it is good for us to have recourse to our first principles, and to satisfy ourselves with the general doctrines of God's wisdom, power, and goodness. Let us consider, as Jeremiah does here,

1. That God is the fountain of all being, power, life, motion, and perfection: He made the heaven and the earth with his outstretched arm; and therefore who can control him? Who dares contend with him? 2. That with him nothing is impossible, no difficulty insuperable: Nothing is too hard for thee. When human skill and power are quite nonplussed, with God are strength and wisdom sufficient to master all the opposition.

Gill:

Jeremiah 32:19
Great in counsel, and mighty in word,.... Counsel belongs to him, and he does all things after the counsel of his will, all things in nature, providence, and grace; and such a display of his wisdom is there in all, that show him to be excellent in counsel; to excel all others; not only to be great, but to be the greatest in counsel; and who regularly and perfectly performs all that he has wisely contrived; his wisdom and his power are equal to each other; he forms the scheme of all that he does with the greatest wisdom, and accomplishes by his power all that he has purposed in his eternal mind; see Isa_28:29;

to give everyone according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings: good things to good men for Christ's sake; and evil things to evil men, according to the just demerit of their sins and transgressions.

We see reader, we serve a Good , holy, loving Father. He has a purpose for us, all may seem as a thing that has not happened in your life, be sure, he knows what he is doing, how he will do it, when he will do it, and why you were born.

Myers devotion today speaks on just this. Jer 1:5 as we will later read.

The lord formed you, He knows everything about you, your dreams, desires, and callings. They are different for each of us, we are needed to rise and use the things given. If you do not know what your God given call and purpose is, it will be made know. He is setting things up right now, and you wonder what He is doing. We do not understand the workings of the lord, He does things we do not see, and we are people that need to see, TODAY, but it almost never happens this way, time, endurance, and staying the course. In time you will say, " that is what this was all about, now I understand, thank the lord He did not answer my prayer, or I would have been dead, or in deep trouble.

The lord has gifts and talents for every singling bible Christian, finding them out brings anguish and sometimes impatience. The talent parable says use it or lose it. The one who used his talents was given more, the next one was given more as he also used his talents, the last one did nothing with his talent but bury it. The one who did nothing what he had was given to the ones who used them.

The ones that used the talents, was proven faithful, were promoted with greater service and enlargement of use, it works like this. Meyers devotion I will end with, it says it all. Beloved , do not be in a hurry, do not let all that is going on in the world distract you, distractions are the Devils tool to having you Bury your God given gift, to do nothing.

You have a gift, many do know what it, or they are, so use them. Use what you have in hand, if little, use it, whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, in the process you indeed will find yourself in the perfect will of God, you will fulfill the very purpose that God created YOU to do.

GOD'S APPOINTMENT
"I formed thee... I knew thee... I sanctified thee; I have appointed thee."-- Jer_1:5 (R.V.).

GOD HAS a plan for each of his children. From the foot of the Cross, where we are cradled in our second birth, to the brink of the river, where we lay down our armor, there is a path which He has prepared for us to walk in.

God also prepares us for the path He has chosen. We are His workmanship, created unto the good works which He has before prepared. There is no emergency in the path for which there has not been provision made in our nature. From the earliest inception of his being, God had a plan for Jeremiah's career, for which He prepared him.

Ask what your work in the world is, that for which you were born, to which you were appointed, and on account of which you were conceived in the creative thought of God. That there is a Divine purpose in thy being is indubitable. Seek that you may be permitted to realize it, and never doubt that you have been endowed with all the special aptitudes which that purpose may demand. God has formed you, and stored your mind with all that He knew to be requisite for your life-work. It is your part to elaborate and improve to the utmost the one or two talents entrusted to your care.

Do not be jealous or covetous; do not envy another his five talents, but answer the Divine intention in your creation, redemption, and call to service. It is enough for thee to be what God made thee to be, and to be always at thy best.

But in cases where the Divine purpose is not clearly disclosed, in which life is lived piecemeal, and the bits of marble for the tessellated floor are heaped together with no apparent plan, we must dare to believe that God has an intention for each of us; and that if we are true to our noblest ideals, we shall certainly work out the Divine pattern, and be permitted some day to see it in its unveiled symmetry and beauty.

To go on occupying the position in which we have been placed by the Providence of God, and to hold it for God till He bids us do something else! Such are golden secrets of blessedness and usefulness.

PRAYER
O Lord, may Thy all-powerful grace make us perfect as Thou hast commanded us to be; through Jesus Christ. AMEN.
