Week of Fifteenth Sunday After Pentecost… 9/17/2017

YOU MAY WHISPER… *push*

O God, we thank you for your Son who chose the path of suffering for the sake of the world.  Humble us by his example, point us to the path of obedience, and give us strength to follow his commands; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

YOU MAY WHISPER… 

don't scream

Listening is a vital element of being a great leader…

I honestly, try to listen to the call of God…

BUT, How do I know that it is God SPEAKING??? 

Easy

One word…

FAITH

“I AM ALIVE FOR SOME REASON” – THANK YOU GOD!!!

You know, what I want to do???

SCREAM the Holy Gospel at you…

Mark 7:1-8

Defilement Comes from Within

Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes came together to Him, having come from Jerusalem. Now when[a] they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is, with unwashed hands, they found fault. For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they wash their hands in a special way, holding the tradition of the elders. When they come from the marketplace, they do not eat unless they wash. And there are many other things which they have received and hold, like the washing of cups, pitchers, copper vessels, and couches.

Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”

He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:

‘This people honors Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’[b]

For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men[c] —the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.”

AS I READ THIS…

I FEEL THE NEED TO WHISPER A PSALM TO YOU…

Psalm 15

The Character of Those Who May Dwell with the Lord

15 Lord, who may abide in Your tabernacle?
Who may dwell in Your holy hill?

He who walks uprightly,
And works righteousness,
And speaks the truth in his heart;
He who does not backbite with his tongue,
Nor does evil to his neighbor,
Nor does he take up a reproach against his friend;
In whose eyes a vile person is despised,
But he honors those who fear the Lord;
He who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
He who does not put out his money at usury,
Nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things shall never be moved.

🙂 🙂 🙂

I WANT SNOW.

PSALM 15

stubborn monkey

YOU MAY WHISPER…

9/12/2017

Well… TODAY was TODAY…

WILL YOU READ 9.12.2017

Ephesians 1:3-6

Redemption in Christ

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

LET’s GO2 TOASTMASTERS

9/13/2017

I went last night…

STILL GOT UP EARLY AND RAN!!!

don't scream

*whispers* let’s go2 that Faith In Action Committee meeting 2night…

WILL YOU READ 9.13.2017

Romans 8:24-30

24 For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us[a] with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

SORRY TO BORE YOU…

May I share with you a teaching by our Lord Jesus Christ???

John 6:60-69

Many Disciples Turn Away

60 Therefore many of His disciples, when they heard this, said, “This is a hard saying; who can understand it?”

61 When Jesus knew in Himself that His disciples complained about this, He said to them, “Does this offend you? 62 What then if you should see the Son of Man ascend where He was before? 63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. 64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him. 65 And He said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.”

66 From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. 67 Then Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also want to go away?”

68 But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”[a]

I AM GOING TO READ ON SUNDAY THE TENTH… IT WILL BE FUN… I ESPECIALLY LIKE THAT FIRST READING IN JOSHUA:

Joshua 24:14-15

14 “Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the Lord! 15 And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

🙂 YES… I AM STUBBORN…

That’s OK… Being stubborn is not one of the Seven Deadly Sins 🙂

This morning (b4 going to that Germanfest and watching Penn State football), I volunteered to support the Hershey Derry Township Historical Society in its mission… IT WAS BEAUTIFUL OUT THIS MORNING…

LIFE ON MARKET

THANK YOU GOD FOR YESTERDAY…

“It was truly beautiful out”

Yesterday, while I was getting all the material prepared for this display… I ran into an old pastor of the Church I am in… I asked him how to pronounce some of the readings for Sunday for me… you know, the readings @ 8 @ HOLY TRINITY of HERSHEY…

If you can not make it, may I share with you some of my readings???

Romans 13:8-14

Love for One Another

Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery; You shall not murder; You shall not steal; You shall not covet”; and any other commandment, are summed up in this word, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.

An Urgent Appeal

11 Besides this, you know what time it is, how it is now the moment for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we became believers; 12 the night is far gone, the day is near. Let us then lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light; 13 let us live honorably as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy. 14 Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

THANK YOU GOD FOR TOMORROW…

THANK YOU GOD!!!

For this week, I want to share with you the Holy Gospel written in the book of John in the New Testament of our Holy Bible… IT READS…

John 6:51-58

51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

52 The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?”

53 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.54 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My flesh is food indeed,[a] and My blood is drink indeed. 56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.58 This is the bread which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.”

THE MESSIAH ROCKS!!! 

(Remember that Jesus’s “words” are colored red in most Bibles)

I am about to go on my way to the Gym, however…

MAY I ALSO SHARE A PASSAGE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF PROVERBS WITH YOU?

BTW – THIS IS HOW, I BEGAN MY WALK WITH CHRIST (reading the book of proverbs)…

“Now, I am running with Him” 🙂

Proverbs 9:1-6

The Way of Wisdom

Wisdom has built her house,
She has hewn out her seven pillars;
She has slaughtered her meat,
She has mixed her wine,
She has also furnished her table.
She has sent out her maidens,
She cries out from the highest places of the city,
“Whoever is simple, let him turn in here!”
As for him who lacks understanding, she says to him,
“Come, eat of my bread
And drink of the wine I have mixed.
Forsake foolishness and live,
And go in the way of understanding.

Reading this again, brings about the desire in my heart to share the teachings of our Lord with the world…

19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Romans 12:9-21

Behave Like a Christian

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. 10 Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; 11 not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; 12 rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; 13 distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.

14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 16 Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.

17 Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,”[a] says the Lord. 20 Therefore

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him a drink;
For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”[b]

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

52 The Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this Man give us His flesh to eat?”

53 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.54 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My flesh is food indeed,[a] and My blood is drink indeed. 56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.58 This is the bread which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.”

Twelfth Sunday After Pentecost… 8/27/2017 *push*

STRONG IN THE NAME OF THE LORD… *push*

Almighty and everlasting God, you are always more ready to hear than we are to pray, and to give more than we either desire or deserve.  Pour upon us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us the things of which our conscience is afraid, and giving us those good things of which we are not worthy to ask, except through the merit of your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

STRONG IN THE NAME OF THE LORD…

(Please read till the end… I added a lot of scriptures and personal testimonies for this Twelfth Sunday After Pentecost… THANK YOU!!!)

I understand, that teachers of God’s word are recommended to use scriptures depicted by a letter “a” in our “Lutheran” Hymnal…

However, this is my second year posting to this blog…

HENCE, I WILL TEACH USING SCRIPTURES DEPICTED BY A LETTER “B”…

ANYWAY…

I want to share with you the Holy Gospel written in the book of John… IT READS… 

John 6:41-51

Rejected by His Own

41 The Jews then complained about Him, because He said, “I am the bread which came down from heaven.” 42 And they said, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He says, ‘I have come down from heaven’?”

43 Jesus therefore answered and said to them, “Do not murmur among yourselves. 44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’[a] Therefore everyone who has heard and learned[b] from the Father comes to Me. 46 Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father. 47 Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me[c] has everlasting life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

WHEN I READ THIS… I GET P+SSED OFF…

P+SSED OFF THAT JESUS WAS REJECTED BY HIS OWN…

THIS NEXT STORY I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU EASES MY MIND…

(letter “b” in our Lutheran Hymnal)… IT READS

1 Kings 19:4-8

But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, “It is enough! Now, Lord, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!”

Then as he lay and slept under a broom tree, suddenly an angel[a]touched him, and said to him, “Arise and eat.” Then he looked, and there by his head was a cake baked on coals, and a jar of water. So he ate and drank, and lay down again. And the angel[b] of the Lord came back the second time, and touched him, and said, “Arise and eat, because the journey is too great for you.” So he arose, and ate and drank; and he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights as far as Horeb, the mountain of God.

This story is about Elijah

HE WAS OBEDIENT TO THE LORD AND ROSE UP!

Will you???

I can’t wait to share my Humor Speech with you… The thing is I don’t know if I am going to win my club level contest… then I get to go2 districts… then regionals… 🙂

THE SUBJECT IS FEAR…

IN THE MEANTIME,

THIS IS WHAT I WAS READING THIS MORNING…

8/23/2017 –

AWESOME!  I can “leak”/share my speech with you… (I did not end up winning)

SPEECH #3                          SPEECH COMPETITION                 “FEAR”

My fellow Toastmasters and guests, thank you for being so encouraging and inviting. I want to speak on fear… Hopefully, you do not suffer from Phobophobia or the Fear of Fear… and you will find much comfort from my speech…

Fear is an awesome topic… Who isn’t afraid of anything??? If you, think that is you I challenge you to listen to the following phobias from I gathered from a list I came up with from searching various Lists on the internet.

Americophobia… Fear of American people and things… Right now, if you were Kim Jong-Un of North Korea you might have this phobia (Can you tell MSN News is my homepage for the internet???) smh… Nukes are on my mind and this is my first topical phobia.

Pogonophobia – Fear of growing a beard… What woman is not afraid of growing a beard??? I prefer women with smooth none hairy skin. I’ll grow my own damn beard if I want hairs in my mouth when I kiss my spouse.

Ablutophobia – Fear of being an adult… If you have ablutophobia then you had better go grab some deodorant because you are probably too scared to take a bath or clean yourself.

Nomophobia – Short for no-mobile-phone phobia, this is the constant fear of not having service and according to researchers in the UK a whopping 50% of people have it. Third world…we apologize.

(TOUCH SOMEONE)… I want to see if you have Haphephobia… Haphephobia is the fear of being touched.

I want to point out (no pun attended) that most PHOBIAs result from some long forgotten traumatic experience. That brings me to Xlyophobia.  I do have Xlyophobia… It’s the fear of wooden objects… Upon many many sleepless nights in my old wooden bed… I concluded that I have this Fear because my mom used to spank me with a wooden spoon when I was bad…

Glossophobia – The fear of public speaking. Not being able to do speeches… Nope… smh… punching the air… none hear… get that monkey off of my back…

Good thing I do not suffer from pinaciphobia or I wouldn’t share this awesome list of phobias with you… pinaciphobia is the fear of lists.

Metallophobia… I LIKE MY METALLICA AND GUNS’N’ROSES… Can you guess that fear this is the fear of metal???

I was not going to admit another fear of mine; however, since the timer did not flash the green light yet, I guess I am gonna have to share it to waste some time… LOGOPHOBIA… especially pronouncing them… BY THE WAY… LOGOPHOBIA = THE FEAR OF WORDS… AWESOME! My time is up! Thank you all for helping me conquer my Logophobia… 🙂

I THOUGHT, I WAS FUNNY…

Proverbs 14:22

22 Do they not go astray who devise evil?
But mercy and truth belong to those who devise good.

INTERESTING…

I want to share with you verses written by Peter (one of Jesus’s disciples)

2 Peter 1:16-21

The Trustworthy Prophetic Word

16 For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” 18 And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.

19 And so we have the prophetic word confirmed,[a] which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; 20 knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation,[b] 21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God[c] spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

QUESTION…
