Wigs Word of God Today
for November 15, 2015
So I exhort the presbyters among you, as a fellow presbyter and witness to the sufferings of Christ and one who has a share in the glory to be revealed. Tend the flock of God in your midst, [overseeing] not by constraint but willingly, as God would have it, not for shameful profit but eagerly. Do not lord it over those assigned to you, but be examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd is revealed, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. 1 Peter 5:1-4
Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake; Some to Everlasting Life, others to reproach and everlasting disgrace. But those with insight shall shine brightly like the splendor of the firmament, And those who lead the many to justice shall be like the stars forever. Dn 12:2-3
Every priest stands daily at his ministry, offering frequently those same sacrifices that can never take away sins. But this One offered one sacrifice for sins, and took His seat forever at the right hand of God; now He waits until His enemies are made His footstool. For by one offering He has made Perfect forever those who are being consecrated. The Holy Spirit also testifies to us, for after saying: “This is the Covenant I will establish with them after those days, says the Lord: ‘I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them upon their minds,’” He also says: “Their sins and their evildoing I will remember no more.” Where there is forgiveness of these, there is no longer offering for sin. Hebrews 10:11-18
If anyone says to you then, ‘Look, here is the Messiah! Look, there he is!’ do not believe it. False messiahs and false prophets will arise and will perform signs and wonders in order to mislead, if that were possible, the elect. Be watchful! I have told it all to you beforehand. “But in those days after that tribulation the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in the clouds’ with great power and glory, and then He will send out the angels and gather [his] elect from the four winds, from the end of the earth to the end of the sky. “Learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branch becomes tender and sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see these things happening, know that he is near, at the gates. Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My Words will not pass away. Mark 13:21-31
1 Peter 5:1-4, Daniel 12:2-3, Hebrews 10:11-18 & Mark 13:21-31
There will be a time in everyone’s life that God will speak to you in a grace instilling more than the ability to see but feel the grace of Christ in the flock He has asked so many others to enjoin in the practice, prayer and preaching of living His call of obedience in a life centered around the Word of God. We are not searching for profit shameful but for the lost, lonely and languished who many times have no one to talk to or enjoy as the Charity God calls us each to succeed in as the grace you never live down.
You live Him up as the reason why you survived or didn’t survive for even in the thoughts of spirits lost from accidents, ailment or annoyance are the regrets of not living in today for the down lives of someone confused in self-created settings of excess wanting more instead of the less needed for the bewildered to find clarity in Charity where nothing is gained in return except the grace we obtain from the Merciful God of Salvation.
The practice we live in the Word of God brings us to Charity meaning Jesus as the crusher of sin from a Cross He agonized for our win. Finding the lost isn’t hard for the Cross will levitate you to a height of understanding by the stars illuminated path brightly shining by the insight your surrender gains in the practice of Eternal prayers. You will help find the lost as I do often sitting by bathrooms of fast food restaurants holding of all of life’s possessions in a plastic grocery bag. Some fought for your freedom in humble ways living Godly for Charity in every way.
Sometimes they seem bewildered by the smile you give or hello you possess as the wind of grace that perks their soul to a one-on-one opportunity to bring their guard down. I know it’s tough talking to strangers but God wants you to know that anyone we talk to in His Name we find the protection of a promise so deep. We can’t dig it ourselves we can’t hide from disease but we can live life for love as the faith we want in hope we believe. So come along with me and meet Mr. Mac hiding from the rain seemingly trapped.
He was in a daze as the my t-shirt shone Christ then he smiled as if he were a light being turned on by motion my walk in Him. Jesus’ face beaming from my shirt with a grin. I said hello upon my exit my hands clean as I extend a welcome of courage unafraid to begin. “Are you hungry,” I asked finishing with, “can I buy you some dinner?” His look was satisfaction maybe because he had just prayed for some help. Maybe he just has confidence that God can hear him as fast as I appeared. No matter the fear God will be near and visiting strangers won’t seem like a long lost empty pier where no one is fishing except the presbyters who are always near.
They are in the smiles of men who fought for our peace if we can really see the peace in wars disease. It’s hard to imagine the lost are just as lonely as we peek into their lives as the live alone without family to greet. They live in their yard hoping it’ll attract more than bees. I met such a man who fought in Korea at a hospital from a fall. Frail and thin his body told it all. He smile with humility something you don’t see from his call of being childless and mate less God was his all.
We visited with a grin as I saluted him tall. I told him I am reporting for duty by the God of all. He smiled and laughed a visitor unknown his surprise was beautiful as we chatted alone. Together my wife and I took him outside I asked if he’d like to see the sun and go for a ride. He agreed and I got permission to take him to see the waterfall outside in nice air we did breathe.
Visiting the lonely has special meaning to host for most are in hospitals or nursing homes and have no one to boast of a life lived of memories he never got to share as we open our ears and listen no interruption we spare. People of faith have to learn how to dare and visit these people they are numbered so high they live completely languished in a bed until they die. So go see them and read Scripture God provides we live in practice our days must collide with the lost, lonely and languished Charity in Christ we can never deny. Amen.
So we pray, Lord prayers for Paris continue today. Novena prayer day five for classrooms in despair. Prayers for my Family of Goodwill across the world who listen on Roku devices and Closer Walk Media .com people like Rene Ilford, Washington, DC. Prayers for Dr. Cruz†Peluca. LORD from 1 Peter 5:6 I chant; So humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
