Wigs Word of God Today Universal Utterings for 10-1-2013
Thus says the LORD of hosts: In those days ten people from nations of every language will take hold, yes, will take hold of the cloak of every Judahite and say, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.” Zechariah 8:23
On the way they entered a Samaritan village to prepare for His reception there, but they would not welcome Him because the destination of His journey was Jerusalem. When the disciples James and John saw this they asked, “LORD, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to consume them?” Jesus turned and rebuked them. Luke 9:52b-55
Zechariah 8:20-23, Psalm 87 & Luke 9:51-56
The exclusiveness of Christ’s Redemption we learn is not a club for righteous people only but that of charity for the world to know forgiveness for even the gravest of sin or as Jesus notes today for those who ignore His Salvation when He calls on you the first time. The Samaritans did not welcome Jesus on His Way to Jerusalem but as history notes and the present speaks Jesus is being welcomed in all four corners of earth by the recognized surrender we must accept when we finally say yes to Christ’s faith, hope and love of charity’s forgiveness.
As Zechariah taught, people will comment even to you, “we have heard that God is with you” as they embrace a welcome from you the gleam Christ forms in your being once you truly accept His Truth as your life’s examples. Jesus rebuked them to show even the disassociation of Elijah is done with obedience to love as He is the Father in love with every man, woman and child He created. Jesus no more wants fire from Heaven to consume anyone let alone Samaritans as He wants your soul to be consumed with forgiveness, peace and love. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray you are with us LORD as we share the love of charity. Novena prayers day two for John G. MD. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. We pray for Greg Bishop. LORD from Psalm 17:3-4, I chant, “You have tested my heart, searched it in the night. You have tried me by fire, but find no malice in me. My mouth has not transgressed as others often do. As Your lips have instructed me, I have kept from the way of the lawless.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am surrendered in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
His journey a village of all souls He would lace– Luke 9:51-56
Fulfilled became the days Jesus would die
Unknown to all as He journeyed besides
Determined resolutely to Jerusalem not to hide
In His Father’s surrender did He trust and comply
Ahead He sent a messenger to prepare His Way
Many towns knew Him engaging not in His play
Village of Samaria welcomed not the Christ that day
Knowing Jerusalem was His destiny to abide and to pray
John and James still learning to walk in this place
The joy of love and honor over ugliness and hate
Sought council of Jesus to unknowingly state
Down from Heaven should we call fire to consume their fate?
Jesus gave us the answer we’d never relate
Unless we surrendered to His love to ultimately face
Them He rebuked to offer all His forgiveness grace
His journey a village of all souls He would lace
