Our Lord Jesus, you have endured the doubts and foolish questions of every generation. Forgive us for trying to be judge over you, and grant us the confident faith to acknowledge you as Lord.
USA! USA! USA!
I love the United States of America… we are truly a blessed nation and I am blessed for being a citizen within its borders…
I followed a car on my way to the library to write this entry… Its license plate read BRO KEV…
Anyway, I have been reading scriptures found in the hymnal I got from my church in Hershey… I want to share with you one of scriptures designated to be taught the 20th Sunday after Pentecost. It is the parable of the wicked vine-dressers, taught by Jesus Christ found in the Holy Gospel of Matthew written in the New Testament of our Holy Bible.
The Parable of the Wicked Vine-dressers
33 “Hear another parable: There was a certain landowner who planted a vineyard and set a hedge around it, dug a wine-press in it and built a tower. And he leased it to vine-dressers and went into a far country. 34 Now when vintage-time drew near, he sent his servants to the vine-dressers, that they might receive its fruit. 35 And the vine-dressers took his servants, beat one, killed one, and stoned another. 36 Again he sent other servants, more than the first, and they did likewise to them. 37 Then last of all he sent his son to them, saying, ‘They will respect my son.’ 38 But when the vine-dressers saw the son, they said among themselves, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and seize his inheritance.’ 39 So they took him and cast him out of the vineyard and killed him.
40 “Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those vine-dressers?”
41 They said to Him, “He will destroy those wicked men miserably, and lease his vineyard to other vine-dressers who will render to him the fruits in their seasons.”
42 Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures:
‘The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone.
This was the Lord’s doing,
And it is marvelous in our eyes’?
43 “Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing the fruits of it.
AWESOME! This makes me want to get it going… USA! USA! USA! I don’t want to see the United States of America lose God… WILL YOU HELP ME KEEP HIM PRESENT???
(Luke 24:6-7… MORE)
I am reading this week in church again… I LOVE IT… It appears that I am scheduled to read every other weekend in October and then some more… YOU KNOW IT. I would love to see you there for encouragement… or at the very least please visit this blog/website this week to view the scriptures I will be reading and ask me about them…
“Every truly great accomplishment seems at first impossible…”
Let’s look at jobs…
9/28/2016 – Today, I spoke with my pastor… She gave a beautiful prayer over me… WISDOM… have it??? I also picked up a copy of the readings I will speak at my church on Sunday… No worries if you will not be present… I will go over them throughout this week for you…
The first lesson is from the book of Habakkuk in the Old Testament written in our Holy Bible…
The Prophet’s Question
2 O Lord, how long shall I cry,
And You will not hear?
Even cry out to You, “Violence!”
And You will not save.
3 Why do You show me iniquity,
And cause me to see trouble?
For plundering and violence are before me;
There is strife, and contention arises.
4 Therefore the law is powerless,
And justice never goes forth.
For the wicked surround the righteous;
Therefore perverse judgment proceeds.
May you please help me prove Habakkuk wrong? I want to believe that the Lord hears my cries…
Hopefully, the next reading I share with you is more comforting…
6/29/2016 – AWESOMENESS… I want to share with you the beginning of the next chapter that I am reading…
God’s Reply to the Prophet’s Complaint
2 I will stand at my watchpost,
and station myself on the rampart;
I will keep watch to see what he will say to me,
and what he[a] will answer concerning my complaint.
2 Then the Lord answered me and said:
Write the vision;
make it plain on tablets,
so that a runner may read it.
3 For there is still a vision for the appointed time;
it speaks of the end, and does not lie.
If it seems to tarry, wait for it;
it will surely come, it will not delay.
4 Look at the proud!
Their spirit is not right in them,
but the righteous live by their faith.
THIS MAKES ME WANT TO RUN!
THANK YOU GOD FOR WISDOM…
