This is a beautiful picture.  As far as you can look is a colorful orange sitting of the Sun and the dark rugged ocean is a spectacular sight.  I love the scenery. What an awesome God we serve.  I just love nature, to set by the ocean any time of the day is good. Morning, Noon, or Night, and as far as you can see its nothing but the jewel of nugget from the creator sitting there with all that it is within it self.  It even have a move of its own, so silk, so smooth, it is all calm within it self.  Sometime it is all tough, hard and rugged within it self.  It resembles it’s maker, God created the ocean, the whole universe to look like Him, by that I mean to have His personality.  God is Love, but sometime just like our earthly parents who chastises us for reasons of disobedient, God also chastise us, He allows our wrong choices to make our destiny or change our destiny. So therefore our choice to be disobedient to the “Will” of God, sets in the reaping and sowing motion. When you reap the hardness of a Holy God, it can resemble the rough, dark, swift movement of this ocean. This big dark rugged ocean was created by a God in whose wrath you do not want to fall under. He is a Holy and righteous God. But our God is love. He is kind. He is forgiving. He is the Almighty God who made the big wide ocean in all of it’s glory. It is all that God created it to be, not more or not less, this picture of many waters is just what it is intended to represent. A God who is eternal. Just look at the blend of the orange color sky with the sitting of the sun how it blends together as one. What an amazing view of them together. It is beautiful. I love watching the ocean, to me it is one of God’s masterpieces. A beautiful Jewel of Nugget to drop into the soul.  Well, just another one of my Jewel of nuggets for the Soul.

Somewhere in time I yielded to God’s voice. I am set aside to serve God. Everything God had given me I wanted to give back to Him.

WISE MEN VISIT JESUS

Matthew 2:1-2

Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the King, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem,Saying,

“where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him”. Matthew 2:1-2

The Savior was born in Bethlehem, He is my Lord and savior, and what a blessing it is, because God favored me, and He favored you also.

Herod the King inquiries about Christ was all for the wrong reason. He pretended that he want to worship Jesus. But he didn’t care about offering well wishes to the Christ baby, because the ways of his heart was evil, and he wanted to harm the child Jesus. But ALL things work together for good, when Almighty God is in the situation. God had a plan of salvation for mankind, and nothing on earth or under were going to stop it.

God chose Bethlehem where Jesus would be born, we read, “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to Me

The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting”. Micah 5:2. This scripture says the “God Head” voice had proclaimed it a long time ago before the foundation of the world was created that Jesus Christ, King Messiah, would be born in Bethlehem bringing salvation to the world until from old to forever.

Jesus Christ, the Messiah came from God to rule the world. Whether you believe it or not it is true. “God does rule the world”. No man can tell Him how to rule and No man can judge Him how he rule it. “God Is Judge Over It All”.

And Jesus Christ, the Messiah was born. There was a man sent from God, Crying in the wilderness, clean up your life, repent of your wicked and vile sins.

John the Baptist came crying out to the people, make straight your hearts, make room for the Messiah, he is coming to save you of your sins, you need to get ready. The prophet were whole heartily crying out to the world repent of your sins, and turn from your wicked ways to get ready to receive the Savior.

“In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” Matthew 3:1-2voic

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness: prepare the way of the Lord; make his path straight” Matthew 3:3

The voice of the Lord is still crying out make the path straight for His righteousness. I catch hold to the prophet voice and say repent of your sins, receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior today in your heart because today is the day for salvation. Make your heart a path for God’s Kingdom service. A path of service to “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations baptizing them in name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, “teaching them to observe all things, that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age”. Amen. Matthew 28:19-20

TO DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE GOD

I will dwell in the House of the Lord! One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple. Psalms 27:4 KJV

With my face turned to the Holy Hills of my God, and my hands lifted up I will give praise to the great “I Am” the everlasting God. I will express my love and strong desire in the Lord. He is the Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end. He is the light of my soul, the bright and morning star, and He is my salvation, and in God I will trust and will not fear. He is the strength of my life, and therefore I will not be afraid. I will not be afraid when the wicked shall come upon me to destroy and eat up my flesh for the Lord will be there, for my enemies will stumble and fall it’s a battle for the Lord, Jehovah-ROHI is my Lord and my shepherd. The Lord loved me before I could love Him. Therefore I will not be afraid. Even though trials and tribulations may be like an army of thousands encamped around me I will not be afraid. Jehovah-ROHI is my Lord. My heart will not fear thou trials may rise up against me like wars but in it all I shall be confident in this one thing, that The Lord is my Shepherd. “For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield. The Lord will give grace and glory. No good thing will He withhold from those who walk upright”. Psalm84:11. God is the light of my life he always lead me into a good path to receive the good things that comes down from heaven. Prayer is mine, joy is mine, praise is mine, worship is mine, salvation is mine and Jesus is mine. Blessing of his grace and mercy is continually with me. No good thing will he withhold from me on earth if I ask in Faith and not doubting. Thanks be unto Jesus that I have the favor of God over my life. Therefore I will love the house of the Lord, His Tabernacle is a place of glory. As I seek God I will not depart from the house of the Lord for He dwell within my heart, He has sent His Holy Spirit from heaven to earth to dwell in our hearts. All praises go up to Jesus who lights my way The Bright and Morningstar. “And this woman was a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day”. Luke 2:37

SOWING SEEDS

(Mark 4:26-29)

The meaning of the parable of the growing seed:

This parable expands on Jesus’ teaching of how the “good soil” (a receptive heart) receives the “seed” (the Word of God). In the Parable of the Growing Seed, Jesus tells a man who scatters seeding on the ground and then allows nature to take its course. As the man who sowed the seed goes about his business day by day, the seed begins to have an effect. First, the seed sprouts; then it produces a stalk and leaves, then a head of grain, and, Finally, fully developed kernels in the head. Jesus emphasizes that all of this happens without the man’s help. The man who scattered the seeds cannot even fully understand how it happen-it is simply the work of nature. “All by it self the soil produces”. (verse 28)

Sowing Seeds: Luke 8:5-16

V5. A sower went out to sow his seeds: and as he showed, some fell by the wayside, and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. (There are 4 groups of people to whom these scriptures are references as the hearer.

1. The Word fell by the wayside, and it was trodden down and the fowls of the air devoured it

Word of God is a seed waiting to be planted in the hearts of man. So “a man” went out sharing the “Word” of God. Many people of all walks of life, and from many nations heard the Word: They heard the Word, These people heard the Word, they even believe it in their hearts what they heard, but when life came, and the cares of the world over took their lives, it gave the devil the opportunity to come and steal the Word out of their hearts to keep them from believing in Jesus unto salvation. The devil want to keep you out of the Kingdom of God, but he want your Soul in Hell with himself.

2. The second group is the Word fell upon a rock, and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.

This group heard the Word, received the Word of God, and believe the Word with joy, but the Word did not have a chance to take root in the hearts. So in a short time, the devil come with temptations and the believer fall away from The Faith, because the Word was sowed in the heart, but it had no roots in the heart to help fight the evil of sin and temptation. Therefore the Christian will have to go into the battle without his/her armor. You can’t fight a Spiritual battle without having your Spiritual Armor. “Put on the whole Armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil”. “And taking the Helmet of Salvation and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”. (Ephesians 6:11,17)

3. The third group the Word fell among was thorns and the thorns sprang up and chocked the Word out of the believer heart. And the Word fell among thorns are believers who heard the Word and they go forth in the world and the cares of the world riches and pleasures of this life, and the believer forget to nourish their spirit with the Word so they can bring forth good fruits, therefore they had no fruits for the riches, and pleasures of life had chocked the Word out of them.

4. The fourth group the Word fell on was good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundred-fold. But the believer with a honest and good heart, heard the Word and kept it, and brought forth fruit with patience. The believer with a honest and good heart, believed the Word, had faith in the Word, and they choose to study the Word and hide it in their heart. Therefore when they walk the path of life they were able to fight the Spiritual Warfare fight because they had on the Whole Armor of God. (Ephesians 6:11-18)

When they receive the Word, they didn’t hide the Word, no, no they spoke the Word and shared God’s Word with others to bring them into salvation.

“No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light” (Luke 8:16)KJV

“Jewels of Nuggets: “Sowing and Reaping” you sow goodness and you reap the good that you sow, but be careful of the state of the heart in what you sow. “Seed Time and Harvest” you plant a seed in good ground and expect a big overflow in return. Be careful of the soil where you plant your seed.

THIS IS THE TIME FOR CHANGE

The scriptures are taken from King James Version of the Bible:

The Words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.   (Ecclesiastes 3:1-22)

“Jewels For The Soul Says:” This is the time to Stand. This is the time to weep. This is the time to look-up. This is the time to pray. This the time to recognize. This is the time for change within. This is the time for a new heart. This is the time for joy.  This is the time to love. This is the time to forgive. This is the time to turn from evil. This is the time to do good. This is the time to love God. This is the time to worship. This is the time to praise. This is the time to show up-lifted hands. This is the time to change. This is the time to help. This is the time to stop being a victim. This is the time to smile. This is the time to live with purpose.

This is the time to love the creator, but not love the creature more than you love the creator. This is the time to give God, all worship, honor, and praise, and to love others as you love yourself.  “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all of your soul, with all of your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: “you shall love your neighbor as yourself”. On these two commandments hang all the law and prophets”

Jewels of Nuggets: Do you love the creature more? Do you love your big house, your big car, your big bank account, your big closet of clothes, all of the material blessing that comes to you, do you worship them more? This is the time to worship the True and Living God, Jehovah God. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, He is the Son of man.   “Amen

God will never change, He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. “I the LORD do not change”.  Malachi 3:6

God tells us of the cautionary nature of his declarations and the fact that He will act in accordance with our choices. If He announces at any time a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted, torn down and destroyed, and if that nation that I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned. And at another time He announces that a nation or kingdom is to be built up and planted, and it does evil in my sight and does not obey me, then I will reconsider the good I had intended to do for it. “This is what the Lord says: Look! I am preparing a disaster for you and devising a plan against you. So turn from your evil ways, each one of you, and reform your ways and actions”  (Jeremiah 18-7-11).  “If a nation I warned repents [like Assyria in Jonah 3]. . . then I will relent.” Conversely, God may tell a nation they will be blessed, but “if it does evil in my sight [like Israel in Micah 1] . . . then I will reconsider the good I had intended.”

This is The Time for Change:

  • To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
  •  A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
  •  A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
  •  A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
  •  A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together, a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
  •  A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep and a time to cast away;
  •  A time to rend, and a time to sew, a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
  •  A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

There is a great deal of toil and trouble to be seen among the children of men. Labour and sorrow fill the world. This toil and this trouble are what God has allotted us. He never intended this world for our rest, and therefore never appointed us to take our ease in it. To many, it proves a gift. God gives it to men, as the physician gives medicine to his patient, to do him good and make him feel better. This travail of a world is given to us to make us weary of the world and desirous of the remaining rest. [when we shall see God] It is given to us that we may be kept in action, and may always have something to do, for none of us were sent into the world to be idle, and for sure not to stay. Every change cuts us out some new work, which we should be more anxious and concerned about, than about the event.

  • What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?
  •  I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
  •  He has made everything beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. [“Jewels of Nuggets” God is the maker of this temple, and He made it beautiful and He is continually working on it, he is not through with me yet, so don’t judge.]
  • I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. [“Jewels of Nuggets” We must be pleased with our fate in this world, and cheerfully submit in the will of God concerning us, and accommodate ourselves to it. There is no good in things, except to do good with them, to our families, to our neighbors, to the poor, to the public, to civil and religious interests. It is to do good in this life, which is short and uncertain we have but a little time to be doing good, and therefore you need to redeem the time”.]
  • And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labor it is the gift of God. [“Jewels of Nuggets” God gives blessing let us thank Him for all that is given to us to enjoy. Don’t be greedy, also be ready to bless others”.]
  •  I know that whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever; nothing can be put to it, nor anything taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
  •  That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.   [“Jewels of Nuggets” Whatever changes we see or feel in this world, we must acknowledge the inviolable steadiness of God’s government. The sun rises and sets, the moon increases and decreases, and yet both are where they were, and their revolutions are in the same method from the beginning according to the ordinances of heaven so it is with the events of providence”.]

This is The Time for Change.  Every man needs to see a change in his Mind, Spirit, Soul, and let the change cause his body to act in obedience to God’s ordinances that are set forth in the world. The world, as it has been, is and will be constant in inconstancy for God requires that which is past, that is, repeats what he has formerly done and deals with us no otherwise than as he has used to deal with good men and shall the earth be forsaken for us, or the rock removed out of its place? There has no change befallen us, nor any temptation by it overtaken us, but such as is common to men.

  •  And moreover, I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place righteousness, that iniquity was there.   [“Jewels of Nuggets” Solomon is showing that everything in this world, without piety and the fear of God, is vanity. Take away religion and there will be nothing valuable among men, nothing for the sake of which a wise man would think it worthwhile to live in this world.”]
  • I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.   [“Jewels of Nuggets” One day the judge himself will be judged for not judging all right. Judgment in the world today is perverted. God shall judge between the righteous and the wicked, he shall judge for the righteous and plead the cause of the oppressed, but the wicked He will not hear. “The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming”.]
  • I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.   [“jewels of Nuggets” Man will be in a bad state without God. Here Solomon hope is that that God would visit man and show him he is nothing without his God. For without God men are compared to beasts”]
  •  For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other, yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.   [Jewels of Nuggets” Here again Solomon is comparing man to beast if a man does not have a new soul in the Divine Christ he is lost after the breath of life goes out of him, for the beast breath air also and when the breath of life leaves him, he goes down to the below”.]
  • All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.   [“Jewels of Nuggets” Man and beast bodies go to the same place when it dies, it is returned back to dirt from where it came. But there is a difference to what happens to man and beast when they die. It is for certain the spirit of the beast goes downwards to the earth it dies with the body, it perishes and is gone at death. The soul of a beast is, at death, like a candle blown out-there is an end of it and it dies forever, but whereas the soul of a man is then like a candle taken out of a dark lantern, which leaves the lantern useless indeed, but does continue itself to shine brighter, because the soul of man continue to live, it will never die because “The Breath Of God” was breathed into the nostrils of man. This great difference between the spirits of men and beasts is the reason why man should worship his God and set his affections on things above, and lift up their souls to those things on high”.]
  •  Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?   [[“Jewels of Nuggets” God knows. He created them as such. Man spirit was put in him to bring glory to Jehovah God in the heavens. A man was made to worship God. God has reserved His place in the heart of man. Beasts have no part in the kingdom worship of God, for beasts have no life in his spirit and after death, the spirit of a beast goes to below”.]
  • wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?   [“Jewels of Nuggets” There is nothing better, as to this world, nothing better to be had out of our wealth and honor, than that a man should happy in his own works, that is: Keep a clear conscience, and never admit iniquity unto the place of righteousness. Let every man examine his own work, and approve himself alone, and not in another. (Galatians 6:4). Let him not get nor keep anything but what he can rejoice in. “For the boasting is this. the testimony of our conscience that we conduct ourselves in the world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom but by the grace of God, and more abundantly toward you”. 2 Corinthians 1:12. Live a cheerful life. If God has prospered the work of our hands unto us, let us give thanks unto God and rejoice in it, and take the comfort of it”.]

Purpose of Writing: Ecclesiastes is a book of perspective. The narrative “of the Preacher” reveals the depression that inevitably results from seeking happiness in worldly things. The book gives Christians a chance to see the world through the eyes of a person who, though it was very wise trying to find meaning in temporary  human things. Most every form of worldly pleasure is explored by the preacher, and none of it gives him a sense of meaning. The Preacher finally realized that this world away from God has nothing to offer, it shall all pass away, and will destroy man as he searches for it, SO,  Vanity of vanity, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

GOING TO A BETTER PLACE

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me”.  John 14:6

Since the beginning of time, we as a people have been pledge with many of thousands of diseases that have caused sickness in the lives of people all over the world. But I must say that I have never in my lifetime seen diseases cause sickness in the lives of people to the point of a pandemic all throughout the nations with people getting sick to never recover. They go into a hospital (many people are isolated in shelters) and expecting and hoping to get better, but they never do. What happens to them is they die and go to meet their maker. “Are you ready to meet God”?  Because The Coronavirus, known as (COVID-19) is a disease that has stepped right out of Hell, and into a nation of people and it is turning people lives upside down and inside out, with no mercy, because it is an evil, wicked, disease, that has come upon mankind to kill and destroy. “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly”. (John 10:10 KJV).  Now the worse situation, in this case, is a disease has come upon nations and there is no sure cure for it, man is struggling to get a cure.  But God says I am thy healer.

I have really been kind of out of focus, but constant in prayer for the past weeks because of the Coronavirus. Could this be because people have drifted so far from God? They have taken God out of the equation and turned to their own weakness and little power and that is not enough my friend. But how can you turn to God and accept Him for who He is if you don’t know who He is? “What did Jesus mean when he said, I am The Way and The Truth and The Life” (John 14:6). Jesus says in (John 8:58) “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, “I Am” Jesus was before Abraham, Abraham was created by God, but Jesus is eternal, He is the eternal Son of God, and with God, the Father (John 1:1-5 KJV) says this about Jesus, he is the eternally existing Son of God. 1. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God”. 2. “The same was in the beginning with God”. 3. “All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made”.  4. “In him was life, and the life was the light of men”.  5. “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not”. How many people call upon God, but do not accept Jesus Christ as the Son of God, and who do not accept he was born of a virgin, and who do not accept Jesus as the only way to God, and who do not accept that He is the Messiah.

  • Jesus IS the son of God – Jesus IS God’s Son in the sense He is God made manifest in human flesh. (John 1:1) In the beginning was, the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. (John 1:14) And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
  • Jesus IS the only way to God – Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Him.  (John 14:6)
  • Jesus IS the Messiah – Messiah comes from the Hebrew word Mashiach and means “anointed one” or “chosen one” the equivalent to the word Christo, or, in English, Christ. The name “Jesus Christ” is the same as “Jesus the Messiah”.
  • Jesus IS born of a virgin – The Son of God is conceived in Mary by the Holy Spirit. (Luke 1:35) And the angel answered her, “the Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy – the Son of God.

He is the Sovereign God over all things. He is EL ELYON God Most High. He has supremacy over all other gods. Whatever you place at your most high that makes you feel powerful and knowledgeable, and out of touch with others because of your superior thinking, know that it is false. IT IS GOD WHO IS IN CONTROL. You need to step down off your high throne because the throne belongs to God and He is still on the throne. “God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness”.  (Psalm 47:8 KJV)

The Coronavirus is the evidence of man’s failure to surrender his knowledge and understanding of being the dominant creature over creation for a loving and supreme God who is the CREATOR of all things.

  • Could this disease have stepped out of hell because – man has forgotten about his creator God?
  • Could it be because the man says he doesn’t need God?
  • Could it be because there are so much sin and wickedness, and evil in the world?
  • Could it be because there is so much hate in the World?
  • Could it be because of man’s greed for money and power and material satisfaction the heart of man has been turned from a loving Father God?
  • Could it be because the man says he doesn’t need prayer in school, and prayer and the Word of God, the Bible is suppressed among the people?

Could it be the Coronavirus that has stepped out of hell into All nations because man says God is no longer welcome in the land? Mind you now, God is ruler over it all. Could it be man has brought punishment upon himself because of his disobedient ways, wicked ways, and sinful life? Could it be because man doesn’t even believe in the true and living God, the Great I Am God, the God that Abraham, Isaiah, and Jacob prayed to? Could it Be because man doesn’t believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God?

Could it be God is speaking to man about his non-repentance ways, and man lack of divine guidance is allowing violence of all sort to fall upon the nations and has caused the lives, health and well being of people to go into desolation and poverty? Gun violence is an unspeakable evil in the society. The country schools are in need of constant protection. Sickness and diseases are ramping loss in the nations, and hunger and homeless there is no end to them.

God’s beautiful creation the earth is moaning and groaning in trivial pain and despair. God is speaking through this COVID 19, and he is speaking aloud. Somebody needs to listen and turn all the way around unto God the Father. Pray it is not too late. Read chapter 8 in Roman verses 19-25 – “For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in pains of childbirth until now. And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience”.

Jewels of Nuggets. “This is my take on this. It is time for the church to be the church. Not just a building, but people coming together in care and love for others. It is time for all people to stop hating and have a caring heart. God is calling people to seek Him and be close to Him every day, not just in the bad and troubled times, but all time. If a man says he has faith in God, and he loves God and walks with the love of Jesus in his heart, if he hides the Word of God in his heart and put on the whole armor of God daily, well, this person will know how to love and respect others”. “Faith without works is dead”.

God has total SOVEREIGN over all His creation. He is sovereign over all things whether visible or invisible, therefore He is all-knowing. Meaning God can see this Coronavirus and He knows what it is, where it came from, how it started, why it started, how long it will last, how it will leave. who will live and who will die, by His Grace and Mercy. God will work this bad time for His glory. God will turn things around for His good, that which the devil has brought upon a person, family, community or a nation for evil, God got it, He is all over it. It is time to give God a chance, and stop thinking you are capable of living a good life without Him and dying a good death without Him, believe me, you want. “And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and the Lamb”.  (Revelation 22:1)

  • God is Omniscience – Means He has all the power. He has all power over all things at all times and in all ways.
  • God is Omniscient – God has total knowledge. He has the quality of knowing everything.
  • God is Omnipresent – This is another one of God’s essential attributes, His justice is also essential, and, therefore, it is necessary for Him to punish sinners who do not trust in Jesus for salvation. God is referred to as being everywhere present, and yet God maintains a place called hell, described as a place where people is removed from His present (Matthew 25:41) “Then He will say to those on his left, depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels”

There is a better place. No more tears and pain. No sickness and death. A beautiful place where Jesus has prepared for those who love Him, and in this city, He will dwell with the people and He will be the Light thereof.

ARE YOU READY TO GO TO A BETTER PLACE? If you are not ready, consider doing the following things.

  • Admit your need. (I am a sinner.) “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. John 3:16 NKJV
  • Be willing to turn from your sins. (repent.) “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. Roman 3:23 NKJV
  • Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross and rose from the grave. (God’s Bridge – The Cross) “Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. John 14:6 NKJV
  • Trust Jesus. “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved”. Roman 10:9 ESV  AND
  • “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” John 1:12 ESV

WILL YOU RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST RIGHT NOW?

HEALING FOR THE SOUL

Psalm 23:3: “He restores my soul.”

What a lovely scripture. God is a loving God, He cares for you, and gently calls you to obey his commands because God knows what is best for you, He knows what is good for you. God the Father, the Great God loves you and wants to see you blessed. So do you need healing? Has your spirit been so broken that you cannot begin to know where you are, or even if you still have a soul worthy to be reclaimed?

  • Your soul is the principle of life, feeling, thought and actions in you, regarded as a distinct entity separate from the body, and commonly held to be separable in existence from the body, the spiritual part of humans as distinct from the physical Part.  Jewels of Nuggets ” your spiritual part is used to embody the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, but your physical part is used to maneuver through a life of maze in this world”.

Some things that can destroy your soul:

  •  Pain
  •  Failure in life
  •  Abuse
  •  Divorce
  •  Finance bankrupt
  •  Sickness
  •  Homeless
  •  Refusing to accept God’s gift of Salvation in “Jesus Christ”. God has given His grace and mercy for your sick soul.
  •  Death

All the things named above and more,  your soul can be restored or healed by God. The question is “How do You Restore your Soul”.

In the Bible Passage of Psalm 23:3, it says “He restores my soul”. You need the Shepherd who leads His sheep to “green pastures”, the shepherd is the Messiah, the Lord, Jesus Christ. Jesus who dwells in your spirit will lead you to green pastures, to fresh and quiet waters. He will heal your soul with fresh flowing water, as He leads you on the path of righteousness. We who are Christians are the sheep of God’s pasture (Psalm 100:3), and only He can restore your soul. Restore means to repair or renovate, and the soul is the deepest part of us all, it is our spirit and innermost being, and God is the one who made you, so only He can restore you because only He knows what we truly need to restore our souls.

“And Jesus went all about the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing every sickness and disease among the people”. (Matthew 9:35)

God has given you the answers about restoring your soul in the Bible:

  •  The Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). The Bible has the wisdom to everything you will ever face.
  •  It will make you wise unto salvation (2 Timothy 3:15).
  •  It will encourage you when your heart is faint-hearted. (2 Corinthians 1:3).
  •  it will be your guidebook to a life of peace and satisfaction (Psalm 119:97-105).

There are many books written by men offering worldly wisdom, but only God’s Word is truly capable of restoring the soul and offering hope in times of distress.

Jewels of Nuggets “Turn unto Holy God and get healing and restoration for the soul”.

Restoring the soul is only possible for those whose souls have been redeemed through faith in Christ. Jesus promised rest to all those that would come to Him (Matthew 11:28-30), so it is important that we are sure of our salvation and our relationship with God. Only those who are truly born again in Christ can experience the peace and joy that God has promised in His Word.

When the Soul needs healing from discouragement, trials, and temptations, thankfully God has provided for our sources of encouragement and strength.

  • He has given us His Word to guide, encourage and nourish us spiritually.
  • Spend time reading the Word, hearing it preached.
  • Most of all obeying the Word.
  • God has given us the privilege and power of prayer.
  • We need to take our problems, our discouragement, and our tiredness to God in prayer, knowing that God loves us and cares for us.
  • He has given us other Christians to encourage us and support us.
  • It is important to be a part of a healthy, well-balanced church and to regularly worship and fellowship with other believers.

Jewels of Nuggets. “We must trust God for the “Healing For The Soul”.

Anyone who needs “Healing For the Soul” from discouragement in times of trouble and tribulation is not unusual. Throughout the Bible, we see examples of godly men and women who have faced similar situations. These examples can serve as an encouragement to us today because the same God who was faithful to them then will be faithful to us today.

For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. (1Timothy 4:8)
