Almighty God, you have made yourself known in your Son, Jesus, redeemer of the world.  We pray that his birth as a human child will set us free from the old slavery of our sin; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

IN THE MEANTIME…

I want to share with you a beautiful story… It is a story of a new hope…🙂 MAY I SHARE THIS WITH YOU???

Luke 2:1-20

Christ Born of Mary

And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.

Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Glory in the Highest

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

15 So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. 17 Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. 18 And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. 19 But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.

AWESOME!!!

Let me point out something that jumped out at me… THE ANGEL SAID “goodwill toward men”… (Luke 2:14)

WHAT KIND OF EVIL BELIEVES THAT KILLING OTHER HUMAN BEINGS (RUNNING OVER THEM WITH A TRUCK) BRINGS FORTH A GREATER REWARD IN THE AFTERLIFE???

Isaiah 9:2-7

The people who walked in darkness
Have seen a great light;
Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
Upon them a light has shined.

You have multiplied the nation
And increased its joy;
They rejoice before You
According to the joy of harvest,
As men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
For You have broken the yoke of his burden
And the staff of his shoulder,
The rod of his oppressor,
As in the day of Midian.
For every warrior’s sandal from the noisy battle,
And garments rolled in blood,
Will be used for burning and fuel of fire.

For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Trained by Saving Grace

11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:

14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

15 So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. 17 Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. 18 And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. 19 But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.

It is what it is… MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! *push*

Stir up your power, O Lord, and come.  Take away the hindrance of our sins and make us ready for the celebration of your birth, that we may receive you in joy and serve you always; for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, now and forever.

It is what it is… MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

It isn’t “fake” news; HOWEVER, it is true news.  It is the true Christmas Story… These scriptures are found in the New Testament of our Holy Bible.  Specifically, in the Holy Gospel (good news) of the book of Matthew…

Matthew 1:18-25

Christ Born of Mary

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20 But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”

22 So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”

24 Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, 25 and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son.  And he called His name Jesus.

AWESOME. Truly AWESOME…

I understand that the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ made us all children of God… BUT, wasn’t Jesus transfigured (Matthew 17:1-3)… I am human… I won’t be as Holy and perfect as Jesus Christ is now… I am not a god, why call Jesus Christ as my equal??? I am cool with calling Saul/Paul my brother; HOWEVER, Jesus Christ is Lord… my Lord God is AWESOME… just AWESOME… I can never be as Holy as Him on this earth… I can try to… I think I will…🙂

I want to share with you one of my favorite PSALMs written by King David (David vs. Goliath) found in the Old Testament of our Holy Bible.

I LOVE THE WORD OF THE LORD…

12/15/2016 –

I was reading the Holy Gospel this morning… The Holy Gospel is a group of books written in the New Testament of our Holy Bible by Jesus’s disciples… THEY WERE BLESSED TO BE WITH OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST WHEN HE WAS IN HUMAN FORM ON EARTH… I would like to share what I was reading… (it was a teaching by our Lord Jesus Christ) May I share???

Matthew 10:24-33

24 “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.25 It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they call those of his household!26 Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.

Jesus Teaches the Fear of God

27 “Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. 28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Confess Christ Before Men

32 “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.

WHY DO MEN CALL GOD BROTHER??? I understand, calling the the humans filled with the Holy Spirit brother and sisters… why do they call YOU brother???

PERPLEXED??? (nope… keep’n it simple) *push*

Almighty God, you once called John the Baptist to give witness to the coming of your Son and to prepare his way.  Grant us, your people, the wisdom to see your purpose today and the openness to hear your will, that we may witness to Christ’s coming and so prepare his way; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

PERPLEXED??? (nope… keep’n it simple)

i am reading Sunday in church… I really would love to see new encouraging faces during our service honoring God.  If you can not make it please check this post throughout the Week of the Third Sunday in Advent.  I will be adding these readings/lessons and personal testimonies for you.

If you have never attended a Lutheran Service before, LET ME HELP YOU… The service intended to honor God is very structured… I was fumbling around the pamphlet the first time I attended a service; however, I KEPT GOING

THRIFT

As I said before, I am reading on Sunday… This entails a lesson from the Old Testament (before the birth, life, death, & RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ), followed by a PSALM musically sung by a choir, followed by a lesson from the New Testament (after the birth, life, death, & RESURRECTION of Jesus Christ)… I will then ask the congregation to pray with me after the reading of the Holy Gospel by the pastor.  The Holy Gospels are books found in the New Testament of our Holy Bible.  They are written by Jesus’s Disciples… yes… they had the honor of spending time with Jesus Christ while He was in human form on earth… and yes, Jesus Christ had the same number of Disciples (Matthew 11) as Jacob was blessed with tribes of Israel (Old Testament)… 12… (Genesis 49)

ANYWAY… 

PERPLEXED??? (nope… keep’n it simple)

I want to share with you a lesson from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ written in the New Testament of our Holy Bible… IT READS…

Matthew 11:2-11

And when John had heard in prison about the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples and said to Him, “Are You the Coming One, or do we look for another?”

Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”

As they departed, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John: “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? But what did you go out to see? A man clothed in soft garments? Indeed, those who wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses.But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet. 10 For this is he of whom it is written:

‘Behold, I send My messenger before Your face,
Who will prepare Your way before You.’

11 “Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

AWESOME… just AWESOME…

JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD… (John 3:16)

To remind you… and to make sure I am prepared to read the Word of the Lord tomorrow at church… may I please share with you the Second Lesson?

James 5:7-10

Be Patient and Persevering

Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.

Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door!  My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering and patience.

ROCK ON!!!

JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD… (John 3:16)

didnot

PERPLEXED??? (nope… keep’n it simple)

Jesus, when He was in human form, showed us that great leaders do good works and lead by example rather than stating one’s authority over another… GRACEFUL… HUH?

Please stop by this blog during your week… BLESSINGS!!!

AWESOME!!! This morning, I started my day going by way driving from Bainbridge, PA to Hershey, PA… It was raining when I left… I listen to 97.3 in the morning when I drive… In the middle of my trip the Beatles song “Here comes the Sun” came on the radio… at that instant it stopped raining and the sun came out…

THANK YOU GOD FOR TODAY!!!

Too funny… Last night I found out that our President-Elect is coming to Hershey, PA next Thursday… I can not attend his “THANK YOU” tour due to work, so I sent him this “TWEET”…

NICE!!!

 

Second Sunday in Advent… 12/4/2016 (REVISED) *push*

I LOVE THE DARK… (may we shine brighter) *push*

Stir up our hearts, O Lord, to prepare the way for your only Son.  By his coming give us the strength in our conflicts and shed light on our path through the darkness of this world; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

I LOVE THE DARK…

(may we shine brighter)

Another week has gone and passed.  We are witnessing an extraordinary chain of events… From Fidel Castro’s death, to a suggested recount of votes in the election of a political leader, to an attack by evil at Ohio State University…It appears that this world is hopeless… However, I might disagree🙂

THIS IS WHAT MY PASTOR TAUGHT US LAST WEEK AT CHURCH… We have hope… One doesn’t have to live in depression or have a negative state of mind… you know why???

We have won!!! Our belief in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead should bring a joyous shout from all of us… This hope in eternal life brings a smile to my face… IT’s AWESOME!

I want to share with you a group of verses written in our Holy Bible that I was reading at 6 this morning… 6 AM… Didn’t I work till 11 last night???

mopping

ANYWAY… IT IS WRITTEN…

1 Corinthians 11:23-26

Institution of the Lord’s Supper

23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread;24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”25 In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

Our brother Paul had an AWESOME way of writing testimonies down and turning that testimony into a story in which God’s beloved children could understand…

The Lord’s super was also written about in the Holy Gospels by witnesses… May you tell me where???

WHEN I ASK QUESTIONS, PLEASE DO NOT MISINTERPRET THAT IGNORANCE AS DISRESPECT… God knows I love being called impertinent.🙂

I simply, do not know…

I think that is an AWESOME revelation… To know that I don’t know… The other scriptures, I was reading this morning, is written in the book of Genesis.  This gave me wisdom to share with you that I DO KNOW.

*I have heard some Christians make the comparison of Melchizedek to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

To me, this makes my head hurt… I just know Jesus Christ is Lord.

Please visit this post throughout your week… I will be adding personal testimonies and scriptures that give me peace… and I HOPE these entries will give you peace also…

MAY PEACE BE WITH YOU!!!

You know… Today, I just feel blah…

THAT IS THE TIME TO PRAISE GOD… I really feel tired… however, I am going to share with you verses from the book of revelation written by John in the New Testament of our Holy Bible… (I LOVE READING)

Revelation 21:2-4

Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS???
