The Fear of THE LORD: Part 28

Sunday, March 26th, 2023

As you walk in the Fear of THE LORD, you will walk in Love as HE defines It!

GOD IS LOVE, so that when you come into HIS Presence, HIS Love will prevail in your life.

Read the following carefully and ponder it today.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st Corinthians chapter 13:

1  Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not GOD, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.

2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not GOD, I am nothing.

You will negate your faith by not walking in Love!  As you walk in The Fear of THE LORD, your faith will become great.

3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not GOD, it profits me nothing.

We are meant to be distribution centers motivated by Agape Love.  This is what Servias is all about.

4 GOD is patient and is kind; GOD does not envy; GOD does not parade Himself, is not puffed up;

FATHER’S patience with you and me is beyond our comprehension.  As Sons and Daughters, our failures should be treated as learning experiences, not judgment by HIM.

5 GOD does not traffic in shame and disrespect, nor selfishly seek HIS own honor. GOD is not easily irritated or quick to take offense.

6  GOD joyfully celebrates honesty and finds no delight in what is wrong.

7 GOD is a safe place of shelter, for HE never stops believing the best for others. GOD never takes failure as defeat, for HE never gives up.

8 GOD never stops Loving. HIS Love extends beyond the gift of prophecy, which eventually fades away. HE is more enduring than tongues, which will one day fall silent. HE remains long after words of knowledge are forgotten.

9 Our present knowledge and our prophecies are but partial,

10 but when HIS Perfection arrives, the partial will fade away.

11 When I was a child, I spoke about childish matters, for I saw things like a child and reasoned like a child. But the day came when I matured, and I set aside my childish ways.

12 For now we see but a faint reflection of riddles and mysteries as though reflected in a mirror, but one day we will see face-to-face. My understanding is incomplete now, but one day I will understand everything, just as everything about me has been fully understood.

13 Until then, there are three things that remain: faith, hope, and Love—yet GOD and His Love surpasses them all. So above all else, let Love be the beautiful prize for which you run, the fullness is found in HIS Presence!

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 27

Saturday, March 25th, 2023

As a believer, you can and should walk in the Fear of THE LORD because you are fully accepted by God!

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

1  So now the case is closed. There remains no accusing voice of condemnation against those who are joined in Life-union with Jesus, the Anointed One.

2 For the “law” of the Spirit of Life flowing through the anointing of Jesus has liberated us from the “law” of sin and death.

3 For God achieved what the law was unable to accomplish, because the law was limited by the weakness of human nature. Yet God sent us His Son in human form to identify with human weakness. Clothed with humanity, God’s Son gave His Body to be the sin-offering so that God could once and for all condemn the guilt and power of sin.

4 So now every righteous requirement of the law can be fulfilled through the Anointed One living His Life in us. And we are free to live, not according to our flesh, but by the dynamic power of the Holy Spirit!

This dynamic power resides on the inside of us, waiting for our access.  What is holding us back?  It is our mindsets that must be renewed by The Word.  As we pursue walking in The Fear of THE LORD, our mindsets will come into alignment with our spirits.

5 Those who are motivated by the flesh only pursue what benefits themselves. But those who live by the impulses of the Holy Spirit are motivated to pursue Spiritual realities.

6 For the sense and reason of the flesh is death, but the mind-set controlled by the Spirit finds Life and peace.

7 In fact, the mind-set focused on the flesh fights God’s plan and refuses to submit to his direction, because it cannot!

8 For no matter how hard they try, God finds no pleasure with those who are controlled by the flesh.

9 But when the Spirit of Christ empowers your life, you are not dominated by the flesh but by the Spirit. And if you are not joined to the Spirit of the Anointed One, you are not of Him.

10 Now Christ lives His Life in you! And even though your body may be dead because of the effects of sin, His Life-giving Spirit imparts Life to you because you are fully accepted by God.

11  Yes, God raised Jesus to Life! And since God’s Spirit of Resurrection lives in you, He will also raise your dying body to Life by the same Spirit that breathes Life into you!

12 So then, Beloved ones, the flesh has no claims on us at all, and we have no further obligation to live in obedience to it.

13 For when you live controlled by the flesh, you are about to die. But if the Life of the Spirit puts to death the corrupt ways of the flesh, we then taste His abundant Life.

We must no longer allow the flesh to control us in any way, shape, or form.  Our flesh wants to hinder us from being in The Presence of THE LORD at all times.  Can we reside there?  Yes.  How do I know?  I fully trust what Jesus proclaimed in John chapter 14:

23  Jesus replied, “Loving Me empowers you to obey My Word. And My Father will Love you so deeply that We will come to you and make you Our Dwelling Place. TPT

23 Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone Loves Me, he will keep My Word; and My Father will Love him, and We will come to him and make Our Home with him.  NKJV

Our unconditional Love expressed to Jesus opens the door for His Presence to manifest in us and through us to benefit others.  He openly commits to making us His Dwelling Place along with Our Heavenly Father.  We must not let our soul convince us otherwise.  The case is closed concerning our past so let us disregard our past unrighteousness which has been dealt with by The Blood.

The adversary wants to convince us that we are not fully accepted in Christ.  Dispel that lie and begin to expect His Presence in you and through you to manifest.

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 26

If you totally embrace the most Sacred prayer by Jesus, you will walk in the Fear of THE LORD!

There is no prayer more Sacred than Jesus praying to FATHER in John chapter 17.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 17:

1   This is what Jesus prayed as He looked up into Heaven,

“Father, the time has come. Unveil the glorious splendor of Your Son so that I will magnify Your glory!

2 You have already given Me authority over all people so that I may give the gift of Eternal Life to all those that You have given to Me.

3 Eternal Life means to know and experience You as the only True God, and to know and experience Jesus Christ, as the Son Whom You have sent.

4 I have glorified You on the earth by faithfully doing everything You’ve told Me to do.

5 So My Father, restore me back to the glory that We shared Together when We were face-to-face before the universe was created.”

Jesus completed His mission on earth to the satisfaction of FATHER.  He walked totally by the directives of FATHER in all areas.  His soul and body were totally subservient to His spirit.

20  “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their Word;

21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.

22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are One:

23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have Loved them as You have Loved Me.

24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You Loved Me before the foundation of the world.

25 O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me.

26 And I have declared to them Your Name, and will declare It, that the Love with which You Loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”  NKJV

All of these writings are intended to bring us into full agreement and unity with Our Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus, and The Holy Spirit without exception.  When there are no exceptions, we are deemed perfect in one.

There is no room for man’s opinions because those who are in unity are totally committed to Truth from Above.  Truth does not rely on an opinion.

King David wrote by THE SPIRIT in Psalm chapter 133:

How truly wonderful and delightful it is to see brothers and sisters living together in sweet unity!

2 It’s as precious as the Sacred scented oil flowing from the head of the high priest Aaron, dripping down upon his beard and running all the way down to the hem of his priestly robes.

3 This harmony can be compared to the dew dripping from Mount Hermon, which flows down upon the hills of Zion. Indeed, that is where Yahweh has decreed His Blessings will be found, the promise of Life forevermore!  TPT

When we are in HIS Presence which means we are in total unity, HE will authenticate HIS Blessings through us for all to see.  There will be no question of our unity because HIS Blessings will be overflowing among us.  We must not be complacent in our walk for now is the time to pursue HIS Presence where the fullness of the Fear of THE LORD resides.

PS: These writings I am posting, are what I deem critical for these times.  The church has lost sight of the importance of The Fear of THE LORD and repentance.

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 25

When we truly walk in the Fear of THE LORD, we will become true disciples of Jesus and His commands!

Jesus may be your Savior, but is He truly your Lord?

Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 6:

46  “What good does it do for you to say I am your Lord and Master if you don’t put into practice what I teach you?

47 Let Me describe the one who truly follows Me and does what I say:

48 He is like a man who chooses the right place to build a house and then lays a deep and secure foundation. When the storms and floods rage against that house, it continues to stand strong and unshaken through the tempest, for he built it wisely on the right foundation.

49 But the one who has heard My teaching and does not obey it is like a man who builds a house without laying any foundation at all. When the storms and floods rage against that house, it will immediately collapse and become a total loss. Which of these two builders will you be? ”  TPT

If you haven’t yet, are you ready to make a full commitment to Him?  When I was young in The Lord, I was afraid of making a full commitment because I thought I would end up in Africa living in a hut as a missionary.  Little did I know at the time that each of us has a unique calling and attributes given to us for that calling.  FATHER’S great grace and mercy prevailed until I understood that HE was totally trustworthy and had my best interest at heart.  What an immature man I was!

Jesus further spoke in Luke chapter 14:

25  As massive crowds followed Jesus, He turned to them and said,

26 “When you follow Me as My disciple, you must put aside your father, your mother, your wife, your sisters, your brothers; it will even seem as though you hate your own life. This is the price you’ll pay to be considered one of My followers (disciples).

27 Anyone who comes to Me must be willing to share My cross and experience it as his own, or he cannot be considered to be My disciple.

28 So don’t follow Me without considering what it will cost you. For who would construct a house before first sitting down to estimate the cost to complete it?

29 Otherwise he may lay the foundation and not be able to finish. The neighbors will ridicule him, saying,

30 ‘Look at him! He started to build but couldn’t complete it!’

Do you want to disperse a “massive” crowd?  Jesus had no issue in challenging the masses concerning their full commitment to becoming one of His disciples.  Full and complete faith in Jesus pleases FATHER.

31 “Have you ever heard of a commander who goes out to war without first sitting down with strategic planning to determine the strength of his army to win the war against a stronger opponent?

32 If he knows he doesn’t stand a chance of winning the war, the wise commander will send out delegates to ask for the terms of peace.

33 Likewise, unless you surrender all to Me, giving up all you possess, you cannot be one of My disciples.

FATHER will tell you what you need to give up if you will only listen to The Holy Spirit and respond without delay.  I have had to learn to be immediate in my response… without over-analyzing it.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Psalm chapter 25:

12  Who are those who fear the LORD? He will show them the path they should choose.

13 They will live in prosperity, and their children will inherit the land.

14 The LORD is a Friend to those who fear Him. He teaches them His Covenant.  NLT

FATHER always has our best interests at heart!

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 2:

12 My beloved ones, just like you’ve always listened to everything I’ve taught you in the past, I’m asking you now to keep following my instructions as though I were right there with you. Now you must continue to make this new life fully manifested as you live in the Holy Awe of God—which brings you trembling into His Presence. TPT

Let us be true disciples of Jesus with fear and trembling!

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 24

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2023

When we truly walk in the Fear of THE LORD, we will be passionate and no longer be seen as lukewarm!

Jesus spoke in John chapter 14:

21 Those who truly Love Me are those who obey My commands. Whoever passionately Loves Me will be passionately Loved by My Father. And I will passionately Love him in return and will reveal Myself to him.”

23 Jesus replied, “Loving Me empowers you to obey My Word. And My Father will Love you so deeply that We will come to you and make you Our Dwelling Place.

If you are not passionate, you will slide into formality and lukewarmness.

12“I tell you this timeless Truth: The person who follows Me in faith, believing in Me, will do the same mighty miracles that I do—even greater miracles than these because I go to be with my Father!

13 For I will do whatever you ask Me to do when you ask Me in My Name. And that is how the Son will show what the Father is really like and bring glory to Him. 14 Ask Me anything in My Name, and I will do it for you!”

Jesus spoke in Revelation chapter 3:

14  Write the following to the messenger of the congregation in Laodicea, for these are the Words of the Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Ruler of God’s creation:

Who better to reveal deception than Jesus!

15 I know all that you do, and I know that you are neither frozen in apathy nor fervent with passion. How I wish you were either one or the other!

16 But because you are neither cold nor hot, but lukewarm, I am about to spit you from My Mouth.

17 For you claim, “I’m rich and getting richer—I don’t need a thing.” Yet you are clueless that you’re miserable, poor, blind, barren, and naked!

A person who is walking in deception does not realize he or she is being deceived.  How do I know?  I have experienced this condition.  I allowed myself to listen to those who could logically use Scriptures to unlock what they claimed as mysteries hidden only to certain people who would embrace their logic.  Even though I had been baptized by The Holy Spirit and had heard FATHER’S Voice in the past, I succumbed to their false doctrines, though they seemed logical and reasonable at the time.  FATHER, in HIS Great Grace and Mercy, delivered me from the deception.  My wife never bought into the error being promoted.  Fortunately, I finally listened to her in the simplicity of what she was saying.  So much for my analytical mind!  She is a true “help meet”.

18 So I counsel you to purchase gold perfected by fire, so that you can be truly rich. Purchase a white garment to cover and clothe your shameful Adam-nakedness. Purchase eye salve to be placed over your eyes so that you can truly see.

19 All those I dearly Love I unmask and train. So repent and be eager to pursue what is right.

20 Behold, I’m standing at the door, knocking. If your heart is open to hear My Voice and you open the door within, I will come in to you and feast with you, and you will feast with Me.

21 And to the one who conquers I will give the privilege of sitting with Me on My Throne, just as I conquered and sat down with My Father on his throne.

22 The one whose heart is open let him listen carefully to what the Spirit is saying now to the churches.

If you have lost your passion, you need to do a “welfare check” and see what and who you are listening to.  As we move toward the Refining Fire, we will walk in a passion that comes from FATHER’S Heart!

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 23

When we walk in the Fear of THE LORD, angels are activated FOR us so that we walk in the empowerment of The Word!

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 1:

14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

Angels only act in accordance with FATHER’S Word, not our opinions apart from HIS Word.  That is why it is vital to keep immersed in The Word.  If you are seeking to walk in accordance with HIS Word even though you are not totally there yet, angels will still protect you from certain death.

In 2012, I was riding my bike on a known bike trail that crossed a four-lane street.  I was wearing a banana-yellow jersey and a helmet.  I stopped and waited for the light so that I could ride across in the pedestrian crosswalk.  A van sped toward me and paid no attention to what was about to happen.  An angel pulled me off the bike and away from the van.  The van ran over the bike and finally stopped after about 40 feet after hitting the bike.  I was spared but the bike wasn’t, it was found underneath the van.  The event is seared into my memory.  FATHER’S great grace and mercy are what saved me, not my performance.  I am no more special than anyone else who Loves HIM!  The angel acted on my behalf.  This was my fourth near-death encounter.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Psalm 91:

11   God sends angels with special orders to protect you wherever you go, defending you from all harm.

12 If you walk into a trap, they’ll be there for you and keep you from stumbling.

13 You’ll even walk unharmed among the fiercest powers of darkness, trampling every one of them beneath your feet!

14 For here is what the Lord has spoken to me: “Because you Loved Me, delighted in Me, and have been loyal to My Name, I will greatly protect you.

15 I will answer your cry for help every time you pray, and you will feel My Presence in your time of trouble. I will deliver you and bring you honor.

16 I will satisfy you with a full life and with all that I do for you. For you will enjoy the fullness of My salvation!”

Do you Love FATHER and delight in HIM?  Are you loyal to HIS Name?  Those of us who answer “Yes” to these questions, qualify for HIS angels to be dispatched on assignment to keep us from mortal danger.

It is recorded by THE SPIRIT in Joshua chapter 5:

10  Now the children of Israel camped in Gilgal, and kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the month at twilight on the plains of Jericho.

11 And they ate of the produce of the land on the day after the Passover, unleavened bread and parched grain, on the very same day.

12 Then the manna ceased on the day after they had eaten the produce of the land; and the children of Israel no longer had manna, but they ate the food of the land of Canaan that year.

13 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, “Are You for us or for our adversaries?”

14 So He said, “No, but as Commander of the army of the LORD I have now come.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, “What does my Lord say to His servant?”

15 Then the Commander of the LORD’s army said to Joshua, “Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is Holy.” And Joshua did so.

Jesus, Himself appeared before Joshua to lead them into the Promised Land.  If it had been an angel, there would have been no need to respond to such a Holy Presence.  Joshua had a history of honoring FATHER in all aspects of his life.  He held on to walking in faith that he and Caleb would enter the Promised Land, even after forty years.  Let us be as tenacious, knowing that if needed, Jesus and/or His angels will manifest on our behalf!

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 22

Monday, March 20th, 2023

If we will walk in the Fear of THE LORD, we will surrender all that is not of HIM!

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Isaiah chapter 6:

1  In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a Throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the Temple.

2 Above It stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two He covered His Face, with two He covered His Feet, and with two He flew.

3 And one cried to another and said: “Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!”

4 And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.

5 So I said: “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The LORD of hosts.”

When you fully encounter the Fear of THE LORD, your unrighteousness is fully exposed, and know that you cannot justify yourself in any manner.  Your self-centeredness rises to the top for all to see.  How do I know?  My own unrighteousness was exposed which resulted in my repentance.  When our eyes are opened by The Word, whether spoken or written, we become undone in those areas needing to be purged.

6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar.

7 And he touched my mouth with it, and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged.”

8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

Once we are fully purged, we are no longer reluctant to avail ourselves of our true calling given to us when HE formed us in the womb.  Peace floods our being and we are no longer concerned about what is being promoted by the world.

9 And He said, “Go, and tell this people: ‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand; Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’

10 “Make the heart of this people dull, And their ears heavy, And shut their eyes; Lest they see with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, And return and be healed.”

There are many who will not respond to the call for repentance because of their entrenched blindness.  Great sorrow is coming once they realize the error of their ways.  Once your eyes are opened, you are utterly amazed at the obvious error you once walked in.  Pride and arrogance are like scales over the eyes.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 5:

6  For when the time was right, the Anointed One came and died to demonstrate His Love for sinners who were entirely helpless, weak, and powerless to save themselves.

7 Now, would anyone dare to die for the sake of a wicked person? We can all understand if someone was willing to die for a truly noble person.

8 But Christ proved God’s passionate Love for us by dying in our place while we were still lost and ungodly!

9 And there is still much more to say of his unfailing Love for us! For through the blood of Jesus we have heard the powerful declaration, “You are now righteous in My sight.” And because of the sacrifice of Jesus, you will never experience the wrath of God.

10 So if while we were still enemies, God fully reconciled us to Himself through the death of His Son, then something greater than friendship is ours. Now that we are at peace with God, and because we share in His resurrection life, how much more we will be rescued from sin’s dominion!

11 And even more than that, we overflow with triumphant joy in our new relationship of living reconciled to God—all because of Jesus Christ!

Once you truly understand that Jesus Christ IS THE ANSWER, you will repent and become transparent so that all unholiness can be purged from your life.  The result will be unconditional Love for us and you will walk with joy in your heart and in The Fear of THE LORD!

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 21

Saturday, March 18th, 2023

If we will walk in the Fear of THE LORD, we will gain Spiritual understanding & revelation!

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Colossians chapter 1:

9   For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His Will in all Wisdom and Spiritual understanding;

And what is the anticipated result of Paul’s prayer?

10 that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11 strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy;

12 giving thanks to the Father Who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.

It is FATHER WHO qualified us to be partakers of HIS inheritance.  When did HE determine to select you and me?  Before HE formed us in the womb.  However, we have to agree to HIS selection because HE gave us free will to determine our individual paths.

16 For by Him all things were created that are in Heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.

The critical Words in the above passage are by, through, and for.  HIS Intent is clearly stated concerning all of creation and who are the ones intended to have dominion over creation:  you and me!

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Job chapter 28:

12  “But where can Wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding?

13 Man does not know its value, Nor is it found in the land of the living.

14 The deep says, ‘It is not in me’; And the sea says, ‘It is not with me.’

15 It cannot be purchased for gold, Nor can silver be weighed for its price.

16 It cannot be valued in the gold of Ophir, In precious onyx or sapphire.

17 Neither gold nor crystal can equal it, Nor can it be exchanged for jewelry of fine gold.

18 No mention shall be made of coral or quartz, For the price of wisdom is above rubies.

19 The topaz of Ethiopia cannot equal it, Nor can it be valued in pure gold.

20 “From where then does wisdom come? And where is the place of understanding?

21 It is hidden from the eyes of all living, And concealed from the birds of the air. 22 Destruction and Death say, ‘We have heard a report about it with our ears.’

23 God understands its way, And He knows its place.

24 For He looks to the ends of the earth, And sees under the whole heavens,

25 To establish a weight for the wind, And apportion the waters by measure.

26 When He made a law for the rain, And a path for the thunderbolt,

27 Then He saw wisdom and declared it; He prepared it, indeed, He searched it out.

28 And to man He said, ‘Behold, the Fear of the Lord, that is Wisdom, And to depart from evil is understanding.'”

Men seek understanding from observation of creation but most fail to comprehend the Source.  They lack Wisdom to discern the Source of understanding so their knowledge is always lacking and frustrating.  As we focus our attention on walking in The Fear of THE LORD, we will gain a higher level of Wisdom and understanding to navigate through this physical life and be partakers of HIS Divine Nature.

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 20

Friday, March 17th, 2023

The Fear of THE LORD is available to all who diligently seek HIM!

It written by THE SPIRIT in Psalm chapter 111:

10  The Fear of the LORD is the beginning of Wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.

If you truly want to walk in Wisdom, you must walk in the Fear of THE LORD, period!

In about 1995, I was busy writing a program and the anointing (HIS Presence) came upon me and HE spoke, “Look at the clock on the wall.”  When I turned around and looked, it was precisely 1:11 and 11 seconds.  HE spoke again, “I bring My anointing exactly as I please.”  He spoke at 1:11 and 10 seconds.  I responded immediately at 11 seconds.  This passage is key to our full understanding!  The anointing left and I went back to work.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 11:

6  But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

There are two separate aspects of developing our faith.  We must believe that “HE IS”.  Only those who are blind and unable to comprehend the most rudimentary aspects of the universe and life on earth, do not believe in a Supreme Being we know as THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.

In the beginning, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY created:

The earth spins at the rate of about 1,000 miles per hour.

The earth revolves perfectly around the sun (93 million miles away) at about 67,000 miles per hour with a perfectly designed tilt.  Any closer, and we would burn up.  Any further away, the earth would freeze.  This is no accident or randomness in the design.

Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 18:

7  Don’t you know that God, the True Judge, will grant justice to all His chosen ones who cry out to Him night and day? He will pour out his Spirit upon them. He will not delay to answer you and give you what you ask for.

8 God will give swift justice to those who don’t give up. So be ever praying, ever expecting, in the same way as the widow. Even so, when the Son of Man comes back, will he find this kind of undying faith on earth?”

When we walk in faith, our commitment is observable in our actions.

Faith leads us down the straight and narrow lighted path because we pursue Holiness.  Those who take this path can hear The Holy Spirit in a more sensitive manner.

The Beloved Disciple wrote in 1st John chapter 1:

5  This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.

6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the Truth.

7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the Blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

As more of us walk in The Fear of THE LORD, we will walk in unity with each other, and we will be totally trustworthy.
